Verse One:
I like a girl with some meat on her bones
But tough enough to hoe her own row
Cracks like a whip, sharp as a tack
Dancing all night, up at the crack of dawn

Chorus:
I like them country girls strong, country girls sweet
Country girls who knock you right off your feet
Country girls are tough, country girls can talk
You hate to see ’em leave
But love to watch ’em walk

Verse Two:
Come from any part of this land
North, south, east and west
They grow up tough, tall, short and mean
From southern beauties to California dreams (to chorus)

Bridge
They can fix their hair, or look like a mess
But sweating in the sun is when they look their best

Only You

Verse One:
All the times you try to tell me
And the times I just didn’t see
Nothing ever changes
What will be, will be

Chorus:
Only you.
Turned out to be
Exactly who you said you’d be

Verse Two:
These days are getting longer
And the nights, they grow colder
These things that never change
For you, or me (to chorus)

Verse One:
Scared sometimes how much your on my mind
But it’s been so long that I don’t know you
Then at night some place I’ve never been
I’m standing there with you

Chorus:
Hey
Girl you’re still drivin’ me insane
A little more every day
A little more every day

Verse Two:
Maybe it’s time you get on out
Let me be in peace
I’ve got my own life now
And I wish you’d let me be
These days you’re making me crazy
Trying to sort the real from my dreams
My heart is making jumps
From the feel to the real (to chorus)

Verse Three:
Sometimes I sit and wonder what
Might have been the now
Had I done a few things different
Than I did so long ago
If I hadn’t caused the hurt I did
Where would we both be
Probably not as happy as the lives that we now lead (to chorus)

Verse One:
Hey baby, where you been?
I haven’t seen since I don’t know when
Hey baby, where’d you go?
Is it somewhere I should know
What I’d give to see you
Hold you in my arms tonight

Verse Two:
Hey baby, where you been?
I’ve been looking for my long lost friend
Hey baby, where’d you go?
Losing you now I can’t let go
In my mind you’re just a memory
But I wish it wouldn’t be that way

Verse Three:
And I keep on looking for you
Hoping your somewhere in this crowded room

Where you been?
Where’d you go?

Verse One:
The Sun is Shinin lets get it on up
A bloody mary in a traveler’s cup
Hook up the boat and load up the truck

Verse Two:
Swim suit is the dress code
Sweatshirt if you get cold
Throw the cooler and some tubes in the back and lets go

Chorus:
I got my cold Coors lite in my right hand
Sun is high in the sky and it’s cookin’ man
Get my fishin’ line wet in my left hand
I Got my baby by my side getting sun tanned
I said you’ll get everything you ever need
And I got mine.

Verse Three:
Cool friends playin’ cool guitars
Pit’s rocking a roaring fire
Good laughs, good times, and cold beers (to chorus)

Verse Four:
It’s days like this I wish would never end
Kickin’ back with a beer and my best friend
Best damn time of the year (to chorus)

Another Shot

Verse One:
Hey bartender throw me a cold one
I know just what I’m doing tonight
If all goes well I won’t remember us talking
And to me, that’s just fine
A lot of friends are asking for evidence
Of what I’m doing with my life
Knife in my pocket, a jimmy in my wallet
Every thing is gonna be all right

Chorus:
One shot, two shots, three shots
Give me another
Four shots, five shots, six shots
Short or a tall it don’t matter
Seven shots, eight shots, nine shots
Give it to me now
Ten shots, eleven shots, more shots

Verse Two:
Hey bartender how ’bout a shot of that whiskey
Yes a double will be just fine
Don’t worry ’bout me drivin’ home
I lost my license just the other night
When that is gone I’ll take a glass of your finest
And then I think I’ll call it a night
And tell Joe he better stop giving me the look
Or you may have to break up a fight (to chorus)

Love Song

Verse One:
You walked in the room that night, and I didnt know what to say
Like the whole wide world stopped spinnin
Every eye in the place was on ya, like you had a damn spotlight on ya
Sexy was the song and you were singin it like you wrote every word

Chorus:
If this is your way of helping me write a love song
You done gone about it all wrong
Can’t even get past the first line
I been wracking my brain all night just tryin to write one
Something to get a little close up on
And get to know you tonight

Verse Two:
I strutted up to the bar, and ordered myself a brew
Just about to make my play
Just in time for you to run and meet up with the girls for some fun
And as you turned and you walked away, I wanted to say
Hey Baby

Whiskey Ain’t Enough

Verse One:
I’d walk a mile in no shoes across broken glass
For just a chance to make amends for being a horses ass
I’ll spend the rest of my days dressed up with no where to go
Since I let you walk away my weeks blend into days
No 24 happy hour is gonna do it this time
You were sweet like sugor and sour like a lime and I
Was a bottle of cheap wine

Chorus:
Woah baby I was wrong
I don’t like the feeling when you’re gone
There’s only so much more of this that I can take
Cuz whiskey ain’t enough to take away this pain

Verse Two:
There ain’t no way in hell I make it through this high water
I’m marchin off the ledge like I follwed that piper
I’ll take the last train out of this one horse town
And I’m gone
Since I let you walk away my weeks blend into days
No 24 happy hour is gonna do it this time
You were sweet like sugor and sour like a lime and I
Was a bottle of cheap wine

Kick it in the Country

Verse One:
Hey pretty thing
Step on up in my big ole truck
We’ll go rolling in the mud
About half past eight
We’ll build a fire and stay up late
Tip a few back and what the sun come up

Chorus:
So put on your blue jeans
Ten dollar screens
Let’s hit the town and tear it up
Climb in the backseat
Oh baby let’s do our thing
Cuz this is how we kick it in the country

Verse Two:
Dust off the seat
Grab a pole let’s go fishing in the creek
Grab a bite, then mess around
Turn off your phone
Tell your momma that you won’t be home
Hit the beat cuz it’s all about us (to chorus)

Crank It Up

Verse One:
Jacked up pickups, some glass packs on big blocks
2000 watts rolling out of the truck
Foot to the floor you know you’ve been there before
Slinging mudd and spinning tires

Pre-Chorus:
Over the hills out past the back forty
These are the nights that make for great stories
Sink some gallons on ice and some redneck toys
Tip a few back with some baddass boys

Chorus:
Come on now, Crank it up!
Come on now, Crank it up!

Verse Two:
Twenty feet of flame fired a hay wagon stage
And some Hayseeds are puttin’ on a show
An ear pinned to the scanner waits for the signal to scatter
Running where the county mounties won’t go

Verse One:
Cold hands burn in my soul
I’m staring at you, where did you go
My friend, why did it go this way
Time heals, and so must I
Head down this road watchin’ the miles go by
Moving on, there’s nothing left to say

Chorus:
Without a warnin
I feel so lonely
Start headin that way
Like miles down the highway
Ain’t no need to
Feel so helpless
Think about it again
A few miles down the highway

Verse Two:
A broken heart can feel so distant
Repeat the past, learn to be reverent
Regret the pain, but I must be moving on

Verse Three:
So what can I make of the short time I’m given
Live for regrets, there’s more to living
Dwell on missteps, one foot in front and moving on

Home

Verse One:
My breath escapes me
It bleeds into the cold dark air
Fog it now surrounds me
I’m lonely and afraid

Chorus:
I’m going home
Lord it’s good to be headed that way
I’m going home
Lord it’s good to be headed that way

Verse Two:
These dogs they are barking
This ground like broken glass
Loneliness abounds
These sands of time won’t pass (to chorus)

Forgiven

Verse One:
Life’s to short
To hold a grudge
No need for spit in eyes
Or kicking shit up
This life’s been dragging me down to long
Need a sweet release
To get back to where I belong

Chorus:
Shoulda been working on forgiven
Instead of wasting this time away
Focus on the lives we should be living
Life’s too short
To waste another day

Verse Two:
I know exactly why
It turned out this way
Must be this German blood
Running through my veins
In the end it’s gonna tear us up
Got ourselves to blame
Could ask for forgiveness
But to us it’s all the same (to chorus)

These Chains

Verse One:
These lines on my face
Tell a story of a man that can’t find his place
Roamin’ from town to town beat down, kicked around
Can’t catch no break

Chorus:
I’m gonna break, these chains
You done placed around my legs
And there ain’t no way
They ain’t never gonna be replaced

Verse Two:
These scars on my wrist
From the cold cuffs of a life restrained
Can’t get gone no where
It’s unfair no way for me to escape (to chorus)

Wrong

Verse One:
Too many reasons
Why I can’t seem to get it right
Why must we take this path
Is it the promise that we made
Shattered illusions
Forgone conclusions in my head
Cling to the memories
And let this pain die yeah

Chorus:
Cuz I’m wrong
And you’re right
I lay down
Give up the fight
Cuz I’m wrong

Verse Two:
Stubborn and cynical
At times I can’t let go
I can’t see
You pass the olive branch
Can’t take it from your hand
Release me (to chorus)
