Here Are the Lyrics to Sam Hunt's 'Kinfolks'

Sam Hunt wants to take things seriously with a girl and introduce her to his "Kinfolks" and all the best parts of where he's from in his heartwarming country banger.

"When I think of ‘kinfolks,’ when I think of that phrase, I think of my family, but also I think of my people back home -- beyond family," Hunt said after its October 2019 release. "It’s my buddies who’ve been a part of my story from the beginning."

   

Check out the smitten lyrics below.

I saw you going by, I had to say hello
I saw you going by, I had to say hello
I don't mean to pry, but girl, I gotta know
What is your name?
How come I ain't seen you around before? Tell me
Now you know I ain't ever had a type, having a type takes two
But I know what I like, and you're the only one of you
You're something else (damn)
And I know we just met, but

I wanna introduce you to my kinfolks, to my old friends
To the house in the pines where the road ends
Take you to my hometown, where I grew up
Where I thought I knew it all before I knew what love was
Gave up on it, but honey, you got my hopes up
And I'm thinking that I wanna introduce you to my kinfolks

(I wanna take you home)
I wanna take you home, not just take you home tonight
Get Joanie on the phone, she'll leave us on a light
I wanna see the way you look up under all those stars, yeah
You don't need to talk, word's gonna get around
They'll tell you how they thought I'd never settle down
Out on the porch, ain't it funny the way things change?

I wanna introduce you to my kinfolks, to my old friends
To the house in the pines where the road ends
Take you to my hometown, where I grew up
Where I thought I knew it all before I knew what love was
Gave up on it, but honey, you got my hopes up
And I'm thinking that I wanna introduce you to my kinfolks

I want you tonight
I don't ever wanna be without
I don't wanna wait around for the right time

I wanna introduce you to my kinfolks, to my old friends
To the house in the pines where the road ends
Take you to my hometown, where I grew up
Where I thought I knew it all before I knew what love was
Gave up on it, but honey, you got my hopes up
And I'm thinking that I wanna introduce you to my kinfolks

(And I'm thinking that I wanna introduce you to my kinfolks)
