Riff: Thomas Rhett – “It Goes Like This”

Oct 9, 2013

Lookin’ at you lookin’ at me that way/Makes me wanna grab my old guitar and play/Something like oooooh, what I wouldn’t do

from It Goes Like This lyrics by Thomas Rhett

A miniscule step above Billy Currington’s lyric-sharing dud, Rhett’s single is likeThe Fox,” only it hinges on the question “What does the country singer say?” As it turns out, once the big chorus hits we find out the answer: “it goes like Ooooooooh.” Goosebumps, I tell you.
