Luke Combs can't wait for the day he doesn't have to stay "Six Feet Apart" from everyone, but at least he doesn't have to wait for another hit: His quarantine single debuted at No. 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week (dated May 16).

Combs first performed the song last month on one of his laidback livestream jam sessions, where he listed all the people he misses seeing -- his mom, dad and band -- as well as all the things he misses doing, including performing, drinking with his buddies and catching a ball game.

But until then, he reassures his listeners with this omen in the chorus: "And there will be light after dark/ Someday when we aren't six feet apart."

Check out the social distancing-friendly lyrics below.

When the dogwoods start to bloom
And the crickets hum their tune
That's usually about the time
That I feel most alive
But the news has all been bad
And the whole world seems so sad
I ain't had much else going on
So I sat down and wrote this song

I miss my mom, I miss my dad
I miss the road, I miss my band
Givin' hugs and shakin' hands
It's a mystery, I suppose
Just how long this thing goes
But there'll be crowds and there'll be shows
And there will be light after dark
Someday when we aren't six feet apart

First thing that I'm gonna do
Is slide on in some corner booth
And take the whole damn family out
And buy my buddies all a round
Pay some extra on the tab
Catch a movie, catch a cab
Watch a ballgame from the stands
Probably over-wash my hands

I miss my mom, I miss my dad
I miss the road, I miss my band
Givin' hugs and shakin' hands
Well, it's a mystery, I suppose
Just how long this thing goes
But there'll be crowds and there'll be shows
And there will be light after dark
Someday when we aren't six feet apart

I miss my mom, I miss my dad
I miss the road, I miss my band
Givin' hugs and shakin' hands
Well, it's a mystery, I suppose
Just how long this thing goes
But there'll be crowds and there'll be shows
There will be light after dark
Someday when we aren't six feet apart
There will be light after dark
Someday when we aren't six feet apart
