Jason Aldean performs onstage during the 54th Academy Of Country Music Awards at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino on April 7, 2019 in Las Vegas. 

Jason Aldean's "Rearview Town" is about leaving small-town life -- and the memories it holds of an ex-flame -- behind.

The title track of Aldean's eighth studio album, "Rearview Town" was released Feb. 25 as the project's fourth single.

Its music video features photographs and videos from the start of Aldean's almost 15-year career, along with footage of his hometown of Macon, Georgia.

Check out the full lyrics below.

Wipe the footprints off my dash
Tore up those sun-faded photographs
Threw 'em in the wind, ya'll can have it back
I'm outta here
I stuck my middle finger up in the sky
Flipped off that "ya'll come back" sign
Looked in the mirror one last time
And watched it disappear

It ain't nothin' but a rearview town
Broken hearts and rusted plows
Roots ripped right up out of the ground
Never thought I'd ever leave it
It ain't nothin' what it used to be
Population minus me
On the other side of that dust cloud
Ain't nothin' but a rearview town

I could tough it out, but what's the use?
A place that small, it's hard to do
Too much of her to run into
And so much road to somewhere new

It ain't nothin' but a rearview town
Broken hearts and rusted plows
Roots ripped right up out of the ground
Never thought I'd ever leave it
It ain't nothin' what it used to be
Population minus me
On the other side of that dust cloud
Ain't nothin' but a rearview town

It ain't nothin' but yesterday
One less truck rollin' down Main
Ain't nothin' left to say

It ain't nothin' what it used to be
Population minus me
On the other side of that dust cloud
Ain't nothin' but a rearview town
Ain't nothin' but a rearview town
