It gets hotter than a hoochie coochie
We laid rubber on the Georgie asphalt
We got a little crazy but we never got caught
Down by the river on a friday night
A pyramid of cans in the pale...

Chattahoochee is about a group of friends who hung together. When he was a teen, in the song it says they burned rubber on the asphalt but never got arrested by police because they drove in the river. Hoochee Coochee is referring to that it was really hot in the summer than that dance. Then every Friday Alan and his buddies would sit on the boat docks building pop cans out of pyramids and talk about who is the cutest girl in High School and what car they wish they had. When he was a little boy, he is saying he grew up by the river and learning to swim and know what his talent was plus he learned that from a family member that love is a feeling and being taught what life is about. On his prom nights, after prom him and his High School Sweetheart went somewhere to kiss and etc and told him wait til we are older to be making babies but still kissed and went to a dairy bar to buy a burgers and snowcones. Then dropped her off and never came home until 12:00 a.m.
