  • All Summer Long - Kid Rock Lyrics
    "It was 1989, my thoughts were short my hair was long
    Caught somewhere between a boy and man
    She was seventeen and she was far from in-between
    It was summertime in Northern Michigan...
    We didn't have no internet...
    Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long"
