Cop Car Lyrics
Jump to:
We drove right past
That no trespassing sign
We sat on the tailgate
And watched the planes take off

We thought we had all night
There was no need to rush
That's when those cops
Came pulling up
And I thought
Man, ain't this some shhhh

Your daddy's gonna kill me
But if I survive tonight
I wouldn't change one thing
Baby, yeah
I know it sounds crazy

But there was somethin bout the way
The blue lights were shinin
Bringing out the freedom in your eyes
I was too busy watching you
Going wild child
To be worried about going to jail
You were thinking that
Running for it
Would make a good story
I was thinking you were crazy as hell
And you were so
But you were stealing my heart
I fell in love in the back of a cop car

Man, they weren't playin
They sure threw those cuffs on quick
You tried to sweet talk 'em
They didn't fall for it
But I did
You were on the left
I was on the right
I knew you didn't smoke
When you asked him for a light
And I laughed
He got mad and slammed the door

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

Side by side
And locked in tight
They were taking their time
But we didn't mind

We talked
And we laughed
We sat real close
By the time they let us go
I was already gone

[Repeat Chorus]

Cop Car Info:

Cop Car is a song written by Zach Crowell, Sam Hunt, and Matt Jenkins, and recorded by Australian country music singer Keith Urban. It was released in January 2014 as the third single from his studio album Fuse.

Keith Urban explained:
"It's a beautiful song about a guy and girl, falling in love in the back of a cop car while they're getting arrested. I'd never heard a song written from this perspective before. But it was so visual, it was such a cinematic, visual song, and God, I love this song so much. I love the melody, the lyric of course, and I know this girl, and I know this crazy girl in the song too."

Hunt noted to Taste Of Country that he still talks to the the girl in the song and drew inspiration from her side of the story. "Actually … I talk to her a lot, and I'd ask her what she thought about this and what she thought about that," he shared. "So I had a female perspective to bounce things off of. She was my girlfriend at the time. She's a great, great girl."
