Tim McGraw

Tim McGraw is the debut single of country pop artist Taylor Swift. She was sixteen years old when she debuted with the song, which she co-wrote with Liz Rose. The song was released on June 19, 2006 by Big Machine Records as the lead single from her eponymous debut album, Taylor Swift. She decided to write "Tim McGraw" during her freshman year of high school, knowing that she and her senior boyfriend, Brandon Borello, would break up at the end of their high school when he left for college. The song was written about all the different things that would remind Borello of Swift and their time spent together. "Tim McGraw" is musical fusion of traditional and modern country music. Lyrically, the track lists items to remember a past relationship, one of them being country artist Tim McGraw's music.

Tim McGraw was a commercial success, spending many weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Country Songs in the United States. It peaked at number 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number six on Hot Country Songs. The single was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and has sold well over a million copies since its release.

Tim McGraw lyrics:

He said the way my blue eyes shined

Put those Georgia stars to shame that night

I said: "That's a lie."

Just a boy in a Chevy truck

That had a tendency of gettin' stuck

On backroads at night

And I was right there beside him all summer long

And then the time we woke up to find that summer gone

But when you think Tim McGraw

I hope you think my favorite song

The one we danced to all night long

The moon like a spotlight on the lake

When you think happiness

I hope you think that little black dress

Think of my head on your chest

And my old faded blue jeans

When you think Tim McGraw

I hope you think of me

September saw a month of tears

And thankin' God that you weren't here

To see me like that

But in a box beneath my bed

Is a letter that you never read

From three summers back

It's hard not to find it all a little bitter sweet

And lookin' back on all of that, it's nice to believe

When you think Tim McGraw

I hope you think my favorite song

The one we danced to all night long

The moon like a spotlight on the lake

When you think happiness

I hope you think that little black dress

Think of my head on your chest

And my old faded blue jeans

When you think Tim McGraw

I hope you think of me

And I'm back for the first time since then

I'm standin' on your street

And there's a letter left on your doorstep

And the first thing that you'll read is:

When you think Tim McGraw

I hope you think my favorite song

Someday you'll turn your radio on

I hope it takes you back to that place

When you think happiness

I hope you think that little black dress

Think of my head on your chest

And my old faded blue jeans

When you think Tim McGraw

I hope you think of me

Oh, think of me

Mmmm

He said the way my blue eyes shine

Put those Georgia stars to shame that night

I said: "That's a lie".
