    I got turned around in some little town
    I’d never been to before
    Working my way through a middle of June
    Midnight thunderstorm
    There was something in the headlights
    That stopped me on a dime
    Well she was scared to death
    So I said climb in and in she climbed
    Oh Yeah
    Well she was bruised and broke from head to toe
    With a tear in her blood stained shirt
    She didn’t tell the whole truth
    But she didn’t have to I knew what had happened to her
    I didn’t load her down with questions
    That girl had been through enough
    I just threw it in drive
    Looked in those eyes
    And asked her where he was
    I don’t know if he’s angel
    Cause angels don’t do what he did
    He was hell bent to find the man behind
    All the whiskey scars I hid
    I never thought my day of justice
    Would come from a judge under his seat
    But I knew right then I’d never get hit again when he said to me
    Wait in the truck
    Just wait in the truck
    Well I knocked and knocked and no one came
    So I kicked in his double wide door
    I let the hammer drop before he got to that twelve he was reaching for
    I didn’t try to hide my pistol
    I didn’t even try to run
    I just sat on the porch smoking one of his cigarettes
    And waited for the cops to come
    I don’t know if he’s angel
    Cause angels don’t do what he did
    He was hell bent to find the man behind
    All the whiskey scars I hid
    I never thought my day of justice
    Would come from a judge under his seat
    But I knew right then I’d never get hit again when he said to me
    Wait in the truck
    Just wait in the truck
    Have mercy on me Lord
    Have mercy on me
    Have mercy on me Lord
    It’s been sixty months
    And she still comes to to see me from time to time
    It was worth the price to see a brighter side of the girl I picked up that night
    And I might be here forever
    It ain’t paradise that’s true
    But it’s a whole hell of a lot better
    Than the place I sent him to
    Wait in the truck
    Just wait in the truck
    Wait in the truck
    Just wait in the truck
    Have mercy on me lord
    Have mercy on me
    Have mercy on me
    Have mercy on me
    Wait in the truck
    Just wait in the truck
    Wait in the truck
    Just wait in the truck

      I am also a Survivor of Domestic violence! My life was nearly taken in 2020 in the presence of my children.. I was told I'd never walk again.. I was in the hospital for 3 months, sent to the Mayo clinic..I'm still in physical therapy and still struggle daily with the now many chronic conditions that I face everyday, but I thank GOD every single day that I'm still alive and here to be a Momma to my babies! This song did way more than hit home! Way to go HARDY, this song will touch many lives! Keep on keeping on my fellow WARRIORS!💯❤

      Two sides to every story. My sister was very abusive to her kids dad. Bragged about it to our family, but with other people, she made herself to be a victim. I disagree with what he did because he wasn't man enough to go talk to find out what happened. If that was my son and some punk ass stranger who didn't know my son killed him. He wouldn't have made out of jail, because I would have put a hit on his head.

      Phil Flynn Month ago +7

      @Gino Hunter No doubt there are folks who lie. I was talking about if this was my daughters. If someone put hands on them, they would be on the buisiness end of me. No "hit" put on them. Just me. The way I was trained. Then I get to see the lights go out right before I go. World of difference though. I know how to clean up.

      Im sorry, I hear what you are saying BUT sometimes our kids make bad mistakes and should deal with the consequences. They can stay or leave. IF it comes down to it, hypothetically no body, no crime.......................

    When I first heard this song I sat there with tears streaming down my face, as a DV Survivor I realized I am her. It took years to get out but I did and never looked back, the system can fail us, the hotlines can fail us. My angel came in the form of an Apartment manager, the night before it escalated, I fled to a friends with my 4 year old son. I walked in and asked for an apt. She took one look at me and asked my story. I told her, and she gave me the keys right then and there, everything else just feel into place. Thank you for this song.

    • Big D
      Big D 9 months ago +88

      @R K bro what makes hardy a legend is that he’s not catering to the trends he’s putting out music that he likes. He’s content being a song writer and his artist platform is just a way to express himself if a song goes #1 that’s great but he’s not stressing over it. Plus’s with 11 number one songs out there I’m sure there’s a few hardy songs u like even if he’s not singing.

The system so messed up I couldn't even get help so I just walk around and get put in jail for it all the time. So glad you got out I might be going back to it. My wife her brother and my kids do it all the time but good for you.😢

    I am a survivor of a horribly physically abusive relationship. When I got wheeled into the ER after days of being beaten with 2 broken bones, basically no hair and a busted up face, the doctor said I looked like a war veteran. It was a war. This song to me is amazing. All of us in DV at one point or another prayed or wished for a savior. This song got me. So strong. So powerful. So. It's real life, folks. So amazing.

    Im a survivor of extreme domestic violence. First heard this song at the CMA's, but (thanks to the multiple traumatic brain injuries my abuser inflicted) I couldn't find this song again til today. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for using your platform as artists, to raise awareness to this ugly issue plaguing society called domestic violence. Y'all could choose to sing about anything, and the fact that you chose this, means the world to survivors like me 💜💜💜

      @Women In History I am so sorry for your loss and for the abuse you've endured. You're right about Native women in particular, they're statistically more likely to experience domestic violence. 4 in 5 to be exact. This issue absolutely needs to be talked about more along with ways to try to prevent it from happening 💜 Sending you blessings for peace and healing.

    I want part 2, the prequel where his mom tells him as a kid to “stay in the truck” while she runs into their house to grab what she can while his dad is out of the house. Unfortunately dad shows up and puts a stop to mom leaving. 😢Next scene is the police officer saying “stay in the truck” while two bodies are being rolled out of the house on stretchers.
    He couldn’t save his momma, so he vowed if he could ever save anyone else from that fate, he would do it at any cost.

    Absolute fucking masterpiece. The lyrics, the music itself (the drums really drive it home), the video, all of it. I was this woman, and my current boyfriend is my Hardy. My abuser texted me on my birthday last year, after many years of zero contact. And after cussing him out, I broke down crying and telling my current bf about everything that that horrible man did to me. My bf took my phone and assured my ex that he would meet this same fate if he ever tried to contact me again, then blocked the number that he texted from. I didn't discover this song until a few months after that, and now it's one of my new favorite songs of all time. If that motherfucker ever texts me again, I'm immediately sending him a link to this video, and nothing else.

  • BAGGS the Augmented Eyes

    This hits me hard, and I'm not even a country music fan. But I can picture myself being the prisoner.... I have a very strong urge inside of me to protect the weak and defenseless. This song gives me chills because I would do the same thing.... I don't have any family, not many friends, and I don't have much to lose really. But I would gladly put my saftey on the line to protect someone who is worthy of a good and decent life. If I knew my actions would benefit the world and other people living a happy life, I'd also let the hammer fall.

    Lainey's 'thank you' at the end of the third verse hits so damn hard. It's like she's not only thanking him for rescuing her; she's thanking him for restoring her faith in both herself and in people. Even as she loads up in his truck, you can see her struggling with her own self-doubts. But as she raises her eyes and sees the Cross, she puts it in drive and rolls on. That's the most tragic thing about those in the throes of domestic abuse. Regardless of how it ends, the victims are left with no other choice but to pray, lean on Calvary for strength and move on as best they can. Thank you, Hardy. Be blessed friend.

    Hardy, I want you to know that as a 60 year old woman, what you expressed in this song resonates with a lot of women and men. From the perspective of a woman, you hit the nail on the head with the 2 lyrical lines, "I just asked her where he was" and "wait in the truck". Those 2 phrases are so powerful when a woman has been beaten and hunted down by someone. From a man's perspective, there are men out there that have NO patients for someone who beats a woman and want to do what you portrayed in this song. It is lyrical GOLD and touches both men and women deeply.
