Missing You Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Comin' On Strong

An hour into my shirt
I'm covered from head to toe
Drilling oil from the bottom
Of the Gulf of Mexico
SUn's on the rise
Sweat rolling black down my face
Work until i cant move
Another back-breaking typical day

[Chorus:]
I've weathered waterspouts and hurricanes
Hailstorms and driving rain
And missing you
Ive worked through broken drills
And bustedhands
Weeks without seeing dry land
And missing you
I'll work as hard as any man
But until I'm home with you again
The toughest thing out here
That i go through is
Missing you

I lay down on my bed
And stare at the picture of you
Barefoot on the beach
Looking at me the way you do
I fal asleep with your letter in my hands
Dream about you until
That ol' whistle starts screaming again

[repeat chorus]

Ill work as hard as any man
But until im home with you again
The toughest thing out here
That i go through is
Missing you

One Of Those Nights Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Comin' On Strong

Have you ever had
One of those days
When you wake up feelin' good
So good that you could tae the whole world on
One of those days
When you just know
No matter what
Nothin' in the world could go wrong
Well thats the way i feel this mornin'
But, baby i just gotta say
I always have one of those days

[Chorus:]
After one of those nights
Just like last night
Oh my, what a beautiful thing
Just you and me
those tangled sheets
Were wrapped around us
Baby, thanks to your love
It was one of those nights that leads
Tright to one of those days that leads
Right to one of those nights

Have you ever had
One of those smiles
You just cant wipe away
The sweet anticipations too strong
One of those smiles you wear all day
'Cause you can taste the kis of passion waitin' back home
Well thats the one im wearing right now
But baby you always leave
One of those smiles on me

[Repeat chorus]

When everythings perfect
When you want me
You touch me
You move me

[repeat chorus]

Right...
One of those nights that leads
To one of those days that leads
Right to one of those nights
One of those nights
When everythings perfect
One of those nights
Oh, one of those nights
I need another one of thoe nights baby
Another one of those nights

Untamed Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Comin' On Strong

I like to be a little wild
I like to raise a litle Cain
I wanna keep it on the edge
Let my restless heart remain
Untamed

[Chorus]
I'm gunna live the way i love
And love the way i live
Walk the higest wire
And stay out on the limb
Away from any fences
Free of any chains
Unbound, untied, untamed

I only want what i've got coming
I'll take the credit and the blame
Even when im bent and broken
I pray my spirit always stays
Untamed

[Repeat chorus]

I take no map
I make no plans
I've let go of the reins
I have no rules
I feel no fear
No restraints
Untamed

Away from any fences
Free of any chains
Unbound, untied, untamed

Then I Wake Up Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Comin' On Strong

I smell the fragrance of your hair
Feel your fingers and your breath on my skin
When we're here alone like this
A crazy world makes perfect sense
I hear you whisperin' my name
Your kisses leave the sweetest taste, on my lips
When you say, "I love you too"
Soft and tender like you do
I know all my dreams have come true

Then I wake up
On the floor, beside our bed
Where I sleep
Ever since the night you left me alone
In this old house
Days go by, but I'm still in love
With who we used to be
Now you're just a precious memory
I can count on every night to hold me tight
Then I wake up

I lay here while the truth sinks in
I'm still alone you're still not here
And we're still through
I remember our last night
Every word right up to goodbye
Slowly I drift off again
I'm saying words I wish I'd said
That night, to you
And you don't drive off in your car
And I don't have a broken heart
And you can't wait to be in my arms

Then I wake up
On the floor, beside our bed
Where I sleep
Ever since the night you left me alone
In this old house
Days go by, but I'm still in love
With who we used to be
Now you're just a precious memory
I can count on every night to hold me tight
Then I wake up

I'm still in love
With who we used to be
Now you're just a precious memory
I can count on every night to hold me tight
Then I wake up
On the floor, beside our bed
Where I sleep
Ever since the night you left me alone
In this old house

One Nightstand Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Comin' On Strong

Well it aint home
But itll have to do for a while
Got a fold down bed
Two windows on the parking lot
Three plates in the kitchenette
A table and chair where i can eat
A little black-and-white tv
A shower stall and a bathroom sink
And one two-drawer nightsand
Barely enough room to be a man

And on the nightstand
Sits a photograph
Of my wife and kids
Reminding me of how good it was
And right now, how bad it is
Beside it there's a coffe cup
Where i keep my wedding ring and stuff
And some nights it still keeps me up
How i got where i am
Funny how a man's life can be reduced
To one nightstand

On the fifth of last november
On a business trip in strangers
Alone for the night
She said 'hi im angie
And im from boston
Would you drink a beer with me
If i bought'em?
So i hit the hotel bar with her
Figured,what would it hurt?

Sittin' on the bed
Leanin' against the wall
With a bible and a gun
One of them was gonna save me
The only question was which one
So i got down on my shakin knees
Asked the lord forgive me please
Dropped the gun and grabbed my keys
That picture and my wedding band
Funny how a man's life can all come down
To one nightstand
One nightstand
One nightstand

Baby's Gone Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Comin' On Strong

If this was a joke
I'd be laughing by now
Cuttin' up with the boys
And braggin' bout how
I talked my way
Out of the trouble i was in again

She kept sayin'
You're gunna miss me
But i never did take her seriously
I guess her gift of prophecy was real amen

[Chorus]
Babys gone
Baby aint to blame
Thatd be my fault
Me and my no brain
Might'a took a train to Tupelo
Might'a been Tulsa for all i know
Talk about movin' on
Babys gone

I admit im the type
Needs a wake-up call
Sometimes you gotta hit me
With a cannonball
I guess baby goin' AWOL did the trick
Pretty quick

Now the trick is
Gettin that phone
If i have to call everybody she's ever known
And tell'em this

[Repeat chorus]
If you wanted my attention
You've got it now
Baby, anthing
Anywhere
Anyhow

[Repeat chorus]
Thats the name of the song
Babys gone

Rough & Ready Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Comin' On Strong

Mudgrips - white-tip
Cigar stickin' out of my face
Earnhardt racing sticker on the window
Banged up fender
4x4 - straight pipe roar
Primer and rust all over the door
Scarred up knuckles, Mack belt buckle
White t-shirt - Ain't afraid to work
Got a "what-are-you-looking-at-asshole" smirk

Cold beer, hot wings
Wranglers, Skoal ring
Get just what you see
Gun rack, ball cap
Don't take no crap
Ain't a pretty boy-toy
I'll rock you steady
Rough and ready

Work boots - one blue suit
Size too small - don't wear at all
Unless somebody kicks - gets hitched
That's a bitch - makes me itch
Up with sun - off on the run
Makin' money money - cause I wanna have fun
5 o'clock whistle - off like a missle
Got a hot date, girl named Kate
Think's I'm cool - 'cause I shoot straight
Ain't one thing about her fake
She's long and tall - and she goes great with

Cold beer, hot wings
Wranglers, Skoal ring
Get just what you see
Gun rack, ball cap
Don't take no crap
Ain't a pretty boy-toy
I'll rock you steady
Rough and ready

Well you are who you are
And that's all right with me
Well I am who I am
And that's all I can be

Cold beer, hot wings
Wranglers, Skoal ring
Get just what you see
Gun rack, ball cap
Don't take no crap
Ain't a pretty boy-toy
I'll rock you steady
Rough and ready

Rough and ready
Yeah...me and my buddies are all alike

Songs About Me Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

I met a guy on the red eye
He spotted my guitar
And said what do you do?
I said, I sing for a living,
Country music mixed with
A little rock and a little blues
He said I'm sorry
But I've never been crazy
'bout that twang and trains and hillbilly thing
What ever made you want to sing stuff like that?
I just looked at him and laughed and said

Cause it's songs about me
And who I am
Songs about loving and living
And good hearted women and family and God
Yeah they're all just
Songs about me
Songs about me

So I offered him tickets
I said you'll see what I mean
If you show up tonight
He said I doubt you'll change my opinion
I'll be kind of busy, but hey man, I'll try

Then later on when we finished our songs
About scars and cars and broken hearts
I saw him, he was standing there
Right next to the stage
And he shouted
Man you were right
It was like you sang those

Songs about me
And who I am
Songs about loving and living
And good hearted women and family and God
Yeah they're all just
Songs about me
Songs about me

So I'll just keep on singing
'til I hear the whole world singing those

Songs about me
And who I am
Songs about loving and living
And good hearted women and family and God
Yeah they're all just
Songs about me
Songs about me

Arlington Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

I never thought that this is where I'd settle down,
I thought I'd die an old man back in my hometown,
They gave me this plot of land, me and some other men, for a job well done,
There's a big white house sits on a hill just up the road,
The man inside he cried the day they brought me home,
They folded up a flag and told my mom and dad, we're proud of your son

[Chorus:]
And I'm proud to be on this peaceful piece of property,
I'm on sacred ground and I'm in the best of company,
I'm thankful for those thankful for the things I've done,
I can rest in peace, I'm one of the chosen ones, I made it to Arlington

I remember daddy brought me here when I was eight,
We searched all day to find out where my granddad lay,
And when we finally found that cross,
He said, "son this is what it cost to keep us free" Now here I am,
A thousand stones away from him,
He recognized me on the first day I came in,
And it gave me a chill when he clicked his heels, and saluted me.

[Repeat Chorus]

And everytime I hear twenty-one guns,
I know they brought another hero home to us

We're thankful for those thankful for the things we've done,
We can rest in peace, 'cause we are the chosen ones,
We made it to arlington, yea dust to dust,
Don't cry for us, we made it to arlington

Find Me A Preacher Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

Look at you sittin' on that tailgate
All barefoot, beautiful & brown eyed
Just watching you breathin is blowin' me away
All I can think about tonight

Somebody find me a preacher
Somebody find me a man with a bible who can tie a knot.
I know what I got, I know who I love
Track him down, wake him up
Right here right now in this Tennessee Dirt
No long white dress No little white church
Just you in your cutoff jeans & my old t-shirt
Somebody find me a preacher

Baby I can't wait another minute
With you on my lap and your back against the wheel
I ain't got no diamond here to give ya
But if this is how loving you feels

Somebody find me a preacher
Somebody find me a man with a bible who can tie a knot.
I know what I got, I know who I love
Track him down, wake him up
Right here right now in this TN Dirt
No long white dress No little white church
Just you in your cutoff jeans & my old tshirt
Somebody find me a preacher

Cause I want to spend the rest of my life
Making you feel the way I feel tonight

Somebody find, Somebody find me a preacher
Somebody find me a man with a bible who can tie a knot.
I know what I got, I know who I love
Track him down, wake him up
Right here right now in this Tennessee Dirt
No long white dress No little white church
Just you in your cutoff jeans & my old t-shirt
Somebody find me a preacher

Somebody find me a preacher, find me a preacher

My Way Back Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

Momma put a Bible in my glove boz
A hot homemade apple pie on the passenger seat
She said you'll always be my baby
And she planted a kss and a couple tears on my cheek
Dad slipped me some travelin' cash
Threw a map with a highlighted route on the dash
And I realize, as i look back, that
They weren't just saying goodbye
They weren't just seeing me off
They were just making sure that I
Don't forget where I'm from
Go out there and do your family proud son
Momma loved and Daddy worked
And lived their lives just to make sure i know
My way back home
I can still smell Momma's kitchen
And feel every single prayer she says for me
I can point these wheels toward that sunset
Without a fear, without a doubt, Daddy says, "Go for that dream"
I left behind a pie-crumb trail
Just in case I get lost, fall flat, or fail
And if the wind should leave my sail
They weren't just saying goodbye
They weren't just seeing me off
They were just making sure that I
Don't forget where I'm from
Go out there and do your family proud son
Momma loved and Daddy worked
And lived their lives just to make sure i know
My way back home
To that door that's always open
And that light that's always on
To the love that's always waiting
After being gone too long
They weren't just saying goodbye
They weren't just seeing me off
They were just making sure that I
Don't forget where I'm from
Go out there and do your family proud son
Momma loved and Daddy worked
And lived their lives just to make sure i know
I always know, I always know
My way back home
My way back home

I Wish It Was You Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

A car goes by and I see a face
A stranger's face in the window
And I wish it was you
I'm in a room, it's a crowded room
A friend walks up to say hello
And I wish it was you
'Cause every memory that haunts my mind
Is just another reason why

[Chorus:]
(I wish it was you)
The phone ring in the middle of the night
The doorbell in the broad daylight
A letter in the mail that I come home to
(I wish it was you)
When I see two people on the street
Touchin' like they don't care who sees
Laughin' the way we used to do
I wish it was me and I wish it was you
I wish it was me and I wish it was you

I'll meet someone who could be the one
But something always happens
Before the night is through
There's that certain look and that certain smile
There's that old familiar pattern
And I wish it was you
Telling me that you'll be back someday
And I don't have to feel this way

[Chorus 2X]

I wish it was you
I wish it was you

Bring It On Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

Troubled soul, all alone
I can feel your sadness
The hearache and the madness

Are hittin' hard tonight
You're cornered up and hunkered down
The walls are tall around you
For anyone to break through
It's gonna be a fight

[Chorus]
Bring it on, bring it on
All your heartache and frustration
You've been done wrong too long
And I'm strong enough to change it
Maybe in time, we'll turn water into wine
Maybe love is what we'll find
Bring it on

It's not too late to fly away
And I won't try to stop you
So you do what you've got to
I'll understand
But if you need a place to land

A haven, safe and certain
Someone to share your burden
Then take my hand

[Chorus 2x]
Bring it on, bring it on
All your heartache and frustration
You've been done wrong too long
And I'm strong enough to change it
Maybe in time, we'll turn water into wine
Maybe love is what we'll find
Bring it on

Yeah, bring it on baby
Baby, bring it on
Bring it on
Yeah, bring it on

My Heaven Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

Everybody has their own idea of heaven
What kind of paradise they'll see
Pearly gates, streets of gold
No getting sick, or growin old
Sounds like a beautiful place to be
But as for me

My heaven is a wood frame house with a great big porch goin all the way around
Sittin on the swing listenin to the sound of the birds singin
My heaven is a warm summer day in the back yard
While the kids all play, flies and mosquitos stay away
While we're eattin watermelon
That's my heaven

You're always gonna find a few non-believers
Those who stay lost in the dark
But I believe there is a place
Full of light 'n love and grace
And I don't believe that its all that far in my heart

My heaven is a cell phone ring while I'm at work
And the only thing that you have to say
Is you miss me and get home in a hurry
My heaven is the very worst day that I spent with you
When you were so mad but I still knew
Nobody would leave cause that don't happen
In my heaven

My heaven is where I am now on the front porch of the wood frame house
Swingin with you just lookin around at all I've been given and this life I'm livin
Is my heaven
My heaven, My heaven

Baby I'm Home Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

Down the street, up the drive
Park the car, step outside
Across the lawn, up the stairs
On the porch, I'm getting there

Key in the lock, through the door
Down the hall I've walked so many times before
I'm dog-tired, but I don't care
Bedroom door, I'm getting there

She's got a hundred candles burning
She's got next-to-nothing on, yeah, yeah

[Chorus:]
Baby, I'm home
I've been away way too long
I've been waitin', I've been workin'
Wantin' you so bad it's hurtin'
Now I'm back where I belong
Baby I'm home

My arms around you, your lips to mine
Feel our hearts beat-beatin' in time
Hands in your hair, everywhere
I hear you whisper, I'm gettin there

She's got a hundred candles burning
They'll be burning all night long, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]

Every night without you, I've been dreamin' 'bout tonight
Missin' everything about you, girl there's no place like

Baby I'm home
I've been away way too long
Baby I'm home
I've been away way too long

[Chorus]

Yeah baby I'm home
Oh I couldn't wait to get here
Yeah baby I'm home
Let me lock the door, close the curtains
That's what I been missin' right there
Looks like it's gonna be a long night
I miss you

Metropolis Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

Well they finally put that red light up in the heart of town
Took the stop sign down, it was shot up anyhow
One night I ran right through it in my Chevrolet
Both police cars came, but I got away

It was a boomtown back in'62, 'til the coal ran out
And a drought came through, and they dammed the river
That we all used to fish
Population 405 and I made it 404 one night
And left the city limit sign layin' in the ditch
Run plumb over it, leavin' Metropolis

Well, I found myself in a big high-rise with a concrete yard
It ain't safe after dark, guess this ol' boy drove too far
Met a girl, fell in love, got married and she's due in May
Says we're gonna need more space, I said I know just the place

Where we can walk down to the country store
And we won't even have to lock our door
We can still get air and water there for free
She said that sounds good to me

It was a boomtown back in '62, 'til the coal ran out
And a drought came through, and they dammed the river
That we all used to fish
Poupulation 404 and when we pull in it'll be 3 more
And there's a city limit sign layin' in the ditch
That I need to fix, back in Metropolis
I'm almost in Metropolis
And I'm back in Metropolis

I Learned How To Love From You Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

I cannot be bitter
Even when the tears fall
Though I had to let you go
My heart knows
I learned how tho love from you

You found something hiding
I did not know was missing
An unlit fire down in my soul
Now my heart knows
I learned how to love from you

You loved like there never was a risk
Shared your heart with every tender kiss
Now I know how much I have to give
'Cause I learned how to love from you

If I start to fall again
I'll close my eyes and not resist
Without fear I'll just let go
'Cause my heart knows
That I learned how to trust
In the power of a touch
I learned how to love from you

Honky Tonk Badonkadonk Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Songs About Me

Turn it up some
Alright boys, this is her favorite song
You know that right
So, if we play it good and loud
She might get up and dance again
Ooh, she put her beer down
Here she comes
Here she comes
Left left left right left
Whoo

Husslers shootin' eight ball
Throwin' darts at the wall
Feelin' damn near 10 ft. tall
Here she comes, Lord help us all
Ol' T.W.'s girlfriend done slapped him outta his chair
Poor ole boy, it ain't his fault
It's so hard not to stare
At that honky tonk badonkadonk
Keepin' perfect rhythm
Make ya wanna swing along
Got it goin' on
Like Donkey Kong
And whoo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how'd she even get them britches on
That honky tonk badonkadonk
(Aww son)

Now Honey, you can't blame her
For what her mama gave her
It ain't right to hate her
For workin' that money-maker
Band shuts down at two
But we're hangin' out till three
We hate to see her go
But love to watch her leave
With that honky tonk badonkadonk
Keepin' perfect rhythm
Make ya wanna swing along
Got it goin' on
Like Donkey Kong
And whoo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how'd she even get them britches on
With that honky tonk badonkadonk
(Ooh, that's what I'm talkin' bout right there, honey)

We don't care about the drinkin'
Barely listen to the band
Our hands, they start a shakin'
When she gets the urge to dance
Drivin' everybody crazy
You think you fell in love
Boys, you better keep your distance
You can look but you can't touch
That honkey tonk badonkadonk
Keepin' perfect rhythm
Make ya wanna swing along
Got it goin' on
Like Donkey Kong
And whoo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how'd she even get them britches on
That honky tonk badonkadonk

That honky tonk badonkadonk
Yeah, that honky tonk badonkadonk

(That's it, right there boys, that's why we do what we do
It ain't for the money, it ain't for the glory, it ain't for the free whiskey
It's for the badonkadonk)

Dangerous Man Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

Usually Im level-headed aint too excitable
Keep it on the slow and steady, Mr. Dependable
Always had the same job, the same look, the same friends
Thats the way its gonna stay
Thats the way its always been

I never knew I had another side
But girl with you Im Jekyll and Hyde

[Chorus:]
When the lights are down low
And you nibble on my neck
I cant be held responsible
For what might happen next
No telling what Ill do
When I get you in my hands
With a woman like you
Im a dangerous man
Yeah Im a dangerous man

All the things I want to do
All the things I want to say
I never met anyone
Ever made me feel this way
Youre like a drug, baby
You make me crazy, honey
Make me want to rob a bank
And make love in the pile of money

Dont try to act all
innocent and sweet
Cause you know exactly what it is you do to me

[Repeat Chorus]

Im a fairly dangerous man

[Repeat Chorus]

Ladies Love Country Boys Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

She grew up in the city in a little subdivision
Her daddy wore a tie, mama never fried a chicken
Ballet, straight-As, most likely to succeed
They bought her a car after graduation
Sent her down South for some higher education
Put her on the fast track to a law degree

Now shes coming home to visit
Holding the hand of a wild-eyed boy

With a farmers tan

Shes riding in the middle of his pickup truck
Blaring Charlie Daniels, yelling, Turn it up!
They raised her up a lady but theres one thing
They couldnt avoid
Ladies love country boys

You know mamas and daddies want better for their daughters
Hope theyll settle down with a doctor or a lawyer
And their uptown, ball gown, hand-me-down royalty

They never understand why their princess falls
For some camouflage britches and a southern-boy-drawl

Or why shes riding in the middle of a pickup truck
Blaring Hank Jr., yelling, Turn it up!
They raised her up a lady but theres one thing
They couldnt avoid
Ladies love country boys

You can train em, you can try to teach em
Right from wrong but its still gonna turn em on

And they go riding in the middle of a pickup truck
Blaring Lynyrd Skynyrd, yelling, Turn it up!
You can raise her up a lady but theres one thing
You just cant avoid
Ladies love country boys
They love us country boys

I Came Here To Live Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

I grew up in a town where tough was a cigarette
And a souped up car on a county road
Nothin' much to do back then
So we'd make bets
On how much drink a guy could hold
And I held my own
Learn to hold my own

Daddy works some dead-end job at the concrete plant
Mama taught the Sunday bible class
For eighteen years I remember thinkin'
There was more to life than that
So I ran the streets to beat the Devil
Goin' just as fast as I could fly
'Cause I came here to live
I didn't come here to die

Mama used to wait for me with the porch light on
Worried about her little boy 'til I got home
Daddy he'd say listen son
But back then there wasn't much
That I didn't already know

I reckon I was doing close to 80
When I felt the tire slip out from under me
And I never set out lookin' for Jesus
So I guess Jesus come lookin' for me
And He found me upset down in a ditch
Smokin' gas in my eyes
And He said son you came here to live
You didn't come here to die

Sunday morning I got up and I went to church
That summer I got a job and I went to work
Met a girl in town put some money down
On a little house with a yard

Our little boy was due in September
But he came early in July
For eighteen days all I remember
Was settin' there at his side
Sayin' son open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes
'Cause you came here to live
You didn't come here to die
Son you came here to live

Aint' No Woman Like You Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

Ain't no ride like a 65 Mustang
Ain't no cool like James Dean cool
Ain't no man alive tough as ol' John Wayne
And ain't no woman like you

Ain't no rose like the yellow rose of Texas
Ain't no freedom like the last day of school
Ain't no whiskey like Tennessee Whiskey
And there ain't no woman like you

I ain't been around the world
But I've been around the block
Don't claim to know it all
I just know what I got
Something I've never had
And I ain't gonna lose
No baby
Ain't no woman like you

Thought I knew sweet
Til I tasted your kisses
Thought I'd been moved
Til I saw you move
Thought I knew love but now I know what I was missin'
'Cause there ain't no woman like you

I ain't been around the world
But I've been around the block
Don't claim to know it all
I just know what I got
Something I've never had
And I ain't gonna lose
No there
Ain't no woman like you
Ain't no other woman

Ain't no sound
Like a wide open Harley
Ain't no blues
Like the Memphis blues
And baby by the way did I forget to mention
That there ain't no woman like you
No there ain't no woman like you
No other woman
Ain't no other woman like you babe
You're the only one

Southern Hallelujah Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

Ahhh yeah....
I'm gonna preach you now brothers & sisters, listen...

Northern dolls, pretty please
Dot their I's and cross their T's
Black skirt, high heels, show you no pity

Sunshine smile, Pacific Gals
Got the DNA mojo know-how
Yes, man, they can make you so dizzy

Made out of Heaven's grand design
It's right there across that Mason-Dixon line

Georgia girls get you jumpin'
Bama belles set hearts pumpin'
Texarkana maids are somethin' with their sweet tea hospitality
Mississippi ladies' mission
Keep them Yankee boys a wishin'
Ol' Webster's definition is zippity-doo-dah what we do to ya
The girls with Southern Hallelujah

Well hey who knew the way they talk
How do you dos and bless your hearts
And hey y'all drawls melt you like butter

Lose your Ps and Qs
They'll set you down
Give you a who to
They'll hush your mouth
Nice to find some spice in the sugar

Restores my faith in humanity
Can I get a witness out there
Who agrees with me?

Georgia girls get you jumpin'
Bama belles set hearts pumpin'
Louisiana maids are somethin' with their sweet tea hospitality
Mississippi ladies' mission
Keep them Yankee boys a wishin'
Ol' Webster's definition is zippity-doo-dah what we do to ya
The girls with Southern Hallelujah

Their kinda beauties just born to make us cry
Don't ask me how I know cuz I can't tell ya why
Just know that I'm one helluva lucky guy
Whoa oh and then some
Can I get an amen, son?
Amen now.

Georgia girls get you jumpin'
Bama belles set hearts pumpin'
Carolinas maids are somethin' with their sweet tea hospitality
Mississippi ladies' mission
Keep them Yankee boys a wishin'
Ol' Webster's definition is zippity-doo-dah what we do to ya
The girls with Southern Hallelujah
Southern Hallelujah
Yeah, amen son

I Wanna Feel Something Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

If youre tellin me Im not on fire
Youre just preachin to the choir
Ive gotten dull as old barbed wire from livin
Last night I watched the evening news
It was the same ol nothin new
It should have cut me right in two
But it didnt
I dont know why it didnt

But I wanna feel somethin
Somethin thats a real somethin
That moves me, that proves to me Im still alive
I wanna heart that beats and bleeds
A heart thats bustin at the seams
I wanna care, I wanna cry, I wanna scream
I just wanna feel somethin

If youre tellin me thats just how it is
I dont buy it cause once I was kissed
By a red-headed girl with cherry lips
On her porch when I was sixteen
And I felt it somewhere in my soul and time stood still and I couldnt let go
I cant tell you cause I dont know how I got so cold
When did I get so cold

[Chorus:]
I just wanna feel somethin
Somethin thats a real somethin
That moves me, that proves to me Im still alive
Run my fingers through your fingers, across your face and through your hair
And close my eyes and breathe you in like air
I just wanna feel somethin

I hate that Im jaded and I make you cry
But still you stick around me, only God knows why
Damn it all to hell, Im done
Cause I dont like what Ive become
So come here, baby
Come here, baby

[Repeat Chorus]

Come here, baby

High Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

Ain't no whiskey in this glass
Try not to smoke too many cigarettes
I stay away from Mary Jane
These are my choices

Ain't gonna judge you if you do
So don't you judge me if I don't
I got my reasons, my demons and my past
But hey the truth is
Yeah the truth is

I get high
Drivin' down the freeway
Just knowin' that it's Saturday
And I got no place to be
I get high
Standin' in the spotlight
No words for what it feels like
When you sing these songs back to me
If you ask me now
I'll tell you this is how
I get high

Sometimes this world can be too much
Somedays I feel like bein' out of touch
And I see a sunset that takes my breath away
And I find hope again
Set there and drink it in
I get high
Drivin' down the freeway
Just knowin' that it's Saturday
And I got no place to be
I get high
Standin' in the spotlight
No words for what it feels like
When you sing these songs back to me
And if you ask me now
I'll tell you this is how
I get high

I get high
Standin' in the spotlight
No words for what it feels like
When you sing my songs back to me
And if you ask me now
I'll tell you this is how
I get high
Yeah this is how I get high

Fightin' Words Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

Alright

Everyone knows I'm the hard workin' peace lovin' type
I walk a thousand miles out of my way
Just to keep from a fight
Poke fun at the way that I talk
Or this hat that I wear
You can say what you want about me
See if I care

But one slip of the tongue 'bout my God Or my mama
Or this flag that I wear on my shirt
You'll see a side of me man
That I don't think you wanna
Cause them there's fightin' words

Now don't get me wrong
I've swapped skin now and then in my youth
I was all for an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
Now the older I get
The less I wanna stand toe to toe
But before you go runnin' your mouth
I think you oughta know

That one slip of the tongue 'bout my God
Or my mama
Or this flag that I wear on my shirt
You'll see a side of me man
That I don't think you wanna
Cause them there's fightin' words

Chevrolet or Ford
The south or the north
That ain't gonna get me worked up
But I'll draw the line
Everytime when it comes to the things that I love

So one slip of the tongue 'bout my dog
Or my woman
Or this country that I proudly serve
You'll see a side of me man
That you damn sure don't wanna
Cause them there's fightin' words
Yeah, them's fightin' words
Ahh them's fightin' words, Hoss

[spoken]
Excuse me
First amendment?
Son, the first amendment protects you from the government
Not from me
You can say whatever you want to out there
You come within reach of me
I'll exercise my right to give you a good ol' country ass whoopin'
Is what I'll do for you
By God

Ride Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

Alright
Take a trip from here

Bogalusa, Baton Rouge,
New Orleans, Picayune,
Boloxi, Pascagoula,
Mobile Bay,Big full moon
Diesel up just north of Destin
Headed cross to Jacksonville
Love to see the world come at me
Through the bugs
On a big windshield
Yeah, that's right

Tear it down in Raleigh-Durham
Haven't got an hour to lose
Head up to the coast to Virginia
Read the newest Newport News
Back across the Appalachians
Blowin' into Louisville
Love to feel the big wheels turnin'
Always have and always will

Somewhere inside me
There's a new direction
Somewhere before me
There's an open road
Can't go to sleep
Without that diesel singin'
Somebody tellin' me
It's time to go
Let's ride
Come on boys, let's ride
Come on boys, let's ride

Little Rock, Texarkana,
Dallas, Fort-Worth and El Paso
110 in the desert
Pedal down
Go dog go
Always love to see the people
Always love to hear the crowd
Always love to bring a party
Turn it up and play it loud

Somewhere inside me
There's a new direction
Somewhere before me
There's an open road
Can't go to sleep
Without that diesel singin'
Somebody tellin' me
It's time to go
Let's ride
Come on boys, let's ride

Let's ride like the wind
I'll be back again
As sure as this world's spins around
One day I might find a reason
To shut this thing down
But for now
Let's ride

Somewhere inside me
There's a new direction
Somewhere before me
There's an open road
Can't go to sleep
Without that diesel singin'
Somebody tellin' me
Tell me, it's time to go
Let's ride
Come on boys, let's ride
Come on boys, let's ride
Yeah
Let's ride

The Stubborn One Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

They say that smokin' ain't allowed in here
But I don't care
Try to sneak you some
Saw your buddies at the barber shop
And they sure fight a lot
Just like they've always done
You look at me
Like you don't know who I am
But that's alright
Cause I know who you are

You're the stubborn one
My great-granddaddy's son
The one who drank his whiskey from a coffee cup
Time has stripped you of
So many things you love
But you keep fightin' on
Cause you're the stubborn one

Remember when we saw Hank Aaron play
I was in second grade
You snuck me out of school
And you wore overalls to Sunday church
You said the Good Lord's work
Ain't done in a monkey suit
You bought your tires down at
Eddie Shaw's garage
You said K-Mart didn't need your dollar

You're the stubborn one
My great-granddaddy's son
The one who drank his whiskey from a coffee cup
Time has stripped you of
So many things you love
But you keep fightin' on
Cause you're the stubborn one

The nurses wonder why
I keep comin' back
They tell me you can't hear me
I guess I'm more like you
Than anybody knew
I can't let go of what I hold so dearly
The stubborn one

You're the stubborn one
My great-granddaddy's son
The one who drank his whiskey from a coffee cup
Time has stripped you of
So many things you love
But you keep fightin' on
Cause you're the stubborn one
You're the stubborn one

Yeah, the stubborn one
You're the stubborn one

Words Get In The Way Lyrics

Artist : TRACE ADKINS
Album : Dangerous Man

I wanna tell you that I'm sorry
I wanna say that I was wrong
I wanna tell you that this circus
That we been living in
Ain't where we belong
It's like the Grand Canyon
And we're out here on the edge
But we're still standin'
Baby we haven't fallen yet

I don't wanna talk anymore tonight
Fallin' through the trap
Of who's wrong and who's right
It's easy to see
The way you're lookin' at me
That you just want the same things
That I do
All I want is to make love to you
There's really nothing to say
Don't let our words get in the way

We both know love's not perfect
It's good, it's bad, it's everything
You know what makes it worth it
For the all the moments in between
There's a deep ocean
Sometimes it's sink or swim
These are real emotions
So baby let's dive in

I don't wanna talk anymore tonight
Fallin' through the trap
Of who's wrong and who's right
It's easy to see
The way you're lookin' at me
That you just want the same things
That I do
All I want is to make love to you
There's really nothing to say
Don't let our words get in the way

Baby

You just want the same things
That I do
All I want is to make love to you
There's really nothing to say
Don't let our words get in the way
Oh
Don't let our words get in the way
Don't let our words

Turn it up some
Alright boys, this is her favorite song
You know that right
So, if we play it good and loud
She might get up and dance again
Ooh, she put her beer down
Here she comes
Here she comes
Left left left right left
Whoo

Husslers shootin' eightball
Throwin' darts at the wall
Feelin' damn near 10 ft. tall
Here she comes, Lord help us all
Ol' T.W.'s girlfriend done slapped him outta his chair
Poor ole boy, it ain't his fault
It's so hard not to stare
At that honky tonk badonkadonk
Keepin' perfect rhythm
Make ya wanna swing along
Got it goin' on
Like Donkey Kong
And whoo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how's she even get them britches on
That honky tonk badonkadonk
(Aww son)

Now Honey, you can't blame her
For what her mama gave her
You ain't gotta hate her
For workin' that money-maker
Band shuts down at two
But we're hangin' out till three
We hate to see her go
But love to watch her leave
With that honky tonk badonkadonk
Keepin' perfect rhythm
Make ya wanna swing along
Got it goin' on
Like Donkey Kong
And whoo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how's she even get them britches on
With that honky tonk badonkadonk
(Ooh, that's what I'm talkin' bout right there, honey)

We don't care bout the drinkin'
Barely listen to the band
Our hands, they start a shakin'
When she gets the urge to dance
Drivin' everybody crazy
You think you fell in love
Boys, you better keep your distance
You can look but you can't touch
That honkey tonk badonkadonk
Keepin' perfect rhythm
Make ya wanna swing along
Got it goin' on
Like Donkey Kong
And whoo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how's she even get them britches on
That honky tonk badonkadonk

That honky tonk badonkadonk
Yeah, that honky tonk badonkadonk

(That's it, right there boys, that's why we do what we do
It ain't for the money, it ain't for the glory, it ain't for the free whiskey
It's for the badonkadonk)

Runnin' Behind Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Sticks And Stones

Work, Work, Work day after day
Fifty hour week, forty hour pay
Not time to get over on this overtime
Yea I'm always runnin', I'm always runnin' behind

I got a friday night date with my sweetheart
I'm already late and the car won't start
Lord, I feel like hittin that car and cryin'
Yes I'm always runnin', I'm always runnin' behind

All my life it's been this way
One dollar short and one day late
One rung lower on the ladder I'm tryin to climb
If I ever get lucky, If I ever get rich
Gonna tow my life up out of this ditch
Watch the world go by while I unwind
Yeah I'm always running,
But I'm alwayas runnin' behind

[Instrumental]
[Repeat Bridge]

Sticks And Stones Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Sticks And Stones

You can take the house and everything in it
Keep the diamond ring cause thats how I meant it
Sticks and stones are all they ever were to me
This material life with all it's value
Don't mean a thing to me without you
The love that we once had is all I need
So take everything we have if it makes you happy
But darlin let me say before I leave

[Chorus]
These sticks and stones ain't all that makes a home
They don't have arms to hold you when love goes wrong
Now you say, we are through
These sticks and stones may break me,
But the words you said just tore my heart in two

Remember when we didn't have a dime between us
You took my hand and said we don't needmuch
Just as long as we're together we would be fine
Now we've acquired all I thought would please you
I gave everything you know that I could
And still you're telling me you're not satisfied
So take everything we have if it makes you happy
But darlin let me say before I leave

[Repeat Chorus]

These sticks and stones may break me,
But the words you said just tore my heart in two

Somebody Paints The Wall Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Sticks And Stones

If my old truck was a horse
I'd have to shoot it
Lord the day my ship came in
I was waiting for a train

Everytime I get a grip, I always lose it
I can't find the sunshine for the rain
And you know I'm always saying I'm sorry
But you stand by me through it all

Seems everytime I make my mark
Somebody paints the wall

Everytime I think I'm off and runnin
I'm barely up to a crawl
Everytime I get a leg up on the ladder of success
I slip and fall

Like last week down at the factory
I was up for a promotion
But the boss says little brother got the call

Seems everytime I make my mark
Somebody paints the wall

Everytime I think I'm off and runnin
I'm barely up to a crawl

Everytime I get a leg up
On the ladder of success, I slip and fall

Like last week down at the factory
I was up for a promotion
But the boss says little brother got the call

Seems like everytime I make my mark
Somebody paints the wall

Seems everytime I make my mark
Somebody always paints the wall

Dancin' To Sweet 17 Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Sticks And Stones

He grew up in the sunset
The wind at his back
He longed to remember
Somethings in our past
We're both over 30, but still seventeen
Just trying to hold on to some old high school dream

[Chorus]
Well therey've been women and lovers
Lots of miles in between
There've been barrooms,and bedrooms
And lots of nights with Jim Beam
Been tequila sunrises, times which I wish I'd never seen
But it's hard to act 30 when your dancin to sweet 17

Now theres 2 wives and 6 kids
And miles in between us
And no time for us anymore
Oh the wild nites and barfights
And ditches and blue lights
Are a million dark nites from before

[Repeat Chorus]

No it's hard to act 30 when your dancing to sweet 17

Today's Lonely Fool Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Sticks And Stones

What would you say if I told you I was sorry
And that I've come to realize
Life means nothing without you
Would you take my hand
Would you forgive this man
For ever doubting your love is true
And could you find it in your heart
To let me try and make it up to you

Yesterday a jealous man
Today a lonely fool
I let love slip right through my hands
With all the hurt I've handed you
I've gotta stop your love from dying
Or I'll be living proof
That yesterday's jealous man
Is today's lonely fool

Darlin' from now on
I'll be proud when other men notice you
Instead of gettin' mean and loud
Like I used to do
Find some mercy in your heart
And we'll make another start
At the love that we once knew
I won't hurt you anymore
I'm gonna trust you now and never question you

Yesterday a jealous man
Today a lonely fool
I let love slip right through my hands
With all the hurt I've handed you
I've gotta stop your love from dying
Or I'll be living proof
That yesterday's jealous man
Is today's lonely fool

I'm today's lonely fool

Froze Over Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Sticks And Stones

She just closed the door
And tonite the heartaches begin
I've lost the key to heaven
And my angel just wont let me in

Well I begged and pleaded down on my knees
To a heart that has turned as cold as ice
She once swore she loved me
Till hell froze over
Well hell just froze over tonite

She said i love you darlin till death do us part
And I said i do too darlin with all of my heart
Hand and hand together, forever, we'd walk side by side
But i took her for granted
Took too many chances, until her love for me died

She just closed the door
And tonite the heartaches begin
I've lost the key to heaven
And my angel just won't let me in

Well i begged and pleaded down on my knees
To a heart that has turned cold as ice
She once swore she loved me till hell froze over
Well hell just froze over tonite

She once swore she loved me till hell froze over
Well hell just froze over tonite

April's Fool Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Sticks And Stones

Theres no way i could ever leave her
I'm addicted to her love can't break the tie
A victim of my own need and to far to ever be free
Everything she does I somehow justify

[Chorus]
I'm aprils fool
I play by her rules
She treats me any old way she wants to
Just as sure as clouds bring showers
And springtime brings May flowers
And a mountain breeze blows cool
I'm aprils fool

Many times i've tried to live without her
Like a frightened runaway child, I always return
To the games she loves to play
Where she always gets her way
Although it hurts I never seem to learn

[Repeat Chorus]

Just as sure as clouds bring showers
And springtime brings May flowers
And a mountain breeze blows cool
I'm aprils fool
Aprils fool

Between Us Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Sticks And Stones

Sometimes our loves an open door
And we know its safe inside
But we have slammed it shut before
And locked our hearts outside
But we get a handle on it
When we let go of our pride

[Chorus]
Sometimes we put words and walls between us
Lose our heads and gamble with our hearts
There've been trials and tears,doubts and fears
Between us
But when all things pass
It's love that'll last between us

Love has taught us to forgive
And time helps us forget
Still as long as we both live
We'll say some things we regret
But love keeps a workin on us
Aw cause we ain't perfect yet

[Repeat Chorus]

There've been trials and tears
Doubts and fears between us
But when all things pass
It's love that'll last between us

I Hope Heaven Has A Honky Tonk Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Sticks And Stones

I was raised in a Christian home
On Bible readin gospel songs
Church doors opened up you'd see my face
Sundays twice, Weds too, I'd take my seat on the front row pew,
Singing Rock of Ages and Amazing Grace

Preacher said heavens the place to go
With pearly gates and streets of gold
I guess for the preacher thats alright
But I hope heavens another story
With a good ole boy bound for glory
A little bit like of texas on a saturday nite

[Chorus]
And I hope heaven has a honky tonk
With a 5 pc band,
Cowboy boots,and bluejeans are part of the master plan
And I hope Hanks on the juke box, Bob Wills has a fiddle in his hand
And I hope heaven has a honky tonk with a 5 piece band

I hope those hardwood floors are just like glass
The girls I ask wanna dance
And each and every waitress is divine
I hope that mean old bouncers got a big halo
Those neon lights will always glow
They ain't never heard of closing time

[Repeat Chorus]

I hope heaven has a honky tonk with a 5 pc band

I Threw The Rest Away Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Alibis

I met him in a dive down in New Orleans I recognized his handsome face
It was none of my business but I had to know what he was doing in this kind of place
Cause he use to have money use to have honeys he used to be society's prince
But he still wore a grin when I sat beside him and ask where all that money went
He said some was spent on gamblin' a lot was spent women
A little on some good Cabernet
Three or four divorces at least as many horses that never left the startin' gates
Diamond rings and furs swamp land in New Jersey that week I spent a year in LA
I hate to admit I threw the rest away

He said money don't mean nothing is this game of life it's just a way of keeping score
Show me a man who's got everything I'll show you one who wants even more
Well so smoke 'em if you got 'em cause when you hit bottom
You gotta have a reason to smile
You can have a little piece of the rock I'll take a little piece of mind
He said some was spent on gamblin'...
[ guitar ]
Diamond rings and furs...
I threw the rest away

Can't Break It To My Heart Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Alibis

I've never felt as helpless as I do today
My world just fell around me as I watched you drive away
There's nothing left between us somehow we've grown apart
Cause I've got it through my head I just can't break it to my heart
I can't believe this is me on the hurtin' side of pain
Sifting through the ashes still tryin' to find a flame
But the flames have turned to embers left glowing in the dark
Yes I've got it through my head I just can't break it to my heart

If I could Lord knows I would spin back the hands of time
And piece these scattered memories that are cluttered in my mind
Pick up where we left off and make a brand new start
Cause I've got it through my head I just can't break it to my heart
I can't believe this is me...
Oh I've got it through my head I just can't break it to my heart
I just can't I just can't break it to my heart
I just can't I just can't break it to my heart
I just can't break it to my heart

We Don't Love Here Anymore Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Alibis

Every night when I come home this old house it's always dark
You don't wait up like you used to like you did at the start
And I can feel the changes as I'm walking through the door
We still live in the same house but we don't love here anymore
We still share the same old bed but now our dreams seem worlds apart
We don't touch the way we used to and it's breaking my heart
We're turning into strangers ties that bind are frayed and worn
We still live in the same house but we don't love here anymore
And I would do anything for what we had before
We still live in the same house but we don't love here anymore
[ guitar ]
Oh I would do anything for what we had before
We still live in the same house we still live in the same house
We still live in the same old house but we don't love here anymore

Crying Ain't Dying Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Alibis

First he said he loved you he promised he'd be true
Then he was unfaithful word got back to you
Tonight when he came calling you wouldn't let him in
Now your tears are falling and you swear they'll never end
But crying ain't dying losing ain't forever
It's kind of like the weather it changes everyday
You learned yourself a lesson bout loving and lying
But you will live to love again cause crying ain't dying
[ guitar ]
Even though he hurt you he's still the one you want
You're gonna feel that way till the day you don't
You can pull the shades down grieve what's gone before
But you can't keep tomorrow from walking through that door
But crying ain't dying...
[ guitar ]
You learned yourself a lesson bout loving and lying
But you will never love again crying ain't dying
You will never love again cause crying ain't dying

Alibis Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Alibis

She knows every move that a man could make now she knows every trick in the book
She knows how to give she knows how to give she knows how to take
But so many times she's been taken and fooled
By those alibis and lyin' eyes and all the best lines Lord knows she's heard 'em all
She's been cheated on and pushed around and left alone
Lord knows what I've put her through
And boy you can bet if a move can be made she knows how to make it on you

She once thought that love wasn't just a game
Her feeling's once came from the heart
One day I gave her a wedding ring one night I tore all those feeling's apart
By those alibis...
By those alibis...

My Second Home Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Alibis

There's a honky tonk on the edge of town I used to call my second home
It's a place I'd go just to get away when I wanted to be alone
Well early one morning had a fight with my darling that went from bad to worse
It ended when she said your second home just became your first
Now the jukebox is my alarm clock I wake up in a corner booth
I don't have a tab don't need no cab cause the dance floor's my living room
Well I might die from a broken heart but I'll never die of thirst
Now that my second home has become my first
[ dobro - fiddle ]
Well I don't have to pay no mortgage I don't have to mow no lawn
A lot of frieds come see me some stay till the break of dawn
I can paint the town without leavin' the house I can feel good till it hurts
Now that my home sweet second home just became my first
Now the jukebox is my alarm clock...
Lord now that my second home has become my first

Don't Talk To See Me That Way Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Alibis

Lately I've been seeing a certain glow upon your face
But I know I'm not the reason you wear that different smile these days
Though you haven't said you're leavin' darling I've already heard
And don't you know your silence is talking louder than your words
Don't talk to me that way cause it's my heart that's being broken
Goodbye still hurts the same even if it goes unspoken
You're tearing me apart with everything that you don't say
There's so much I haven't heard and that's less than I deserve
Don't talk to me that way
[ steel ]
Why can't you lay it on the line and say you found somebody new
I can't take the silence as well as I can take the truth
And I don't want you here beside me if that's not where you want to be
But you ain't said a single word and that's not enough for me
Don't talk to me that way cause that ain't no stranger's heart that's being broken
Goodbye still hurts the same even if it goes unspoken
You're tearing me apart with everything that you don't say
There's so much I haven't heard and that's less than I deserve
Don't talk to me that way
There's so much I haven't heard that's less than I deserve
Don't talk to me that way

Last night she wasn't sleeping when I came slipping in
I knew I had it coming cause she knew where I'd been
She said a part of me walks out that door everytime you leave
So remember this while you are losin' me
It only takes one bar to make a prison
You've been doing too much time away from home
She said it takes two hearts to hold a love together
But it only takes one fool to be alone

She said I've sat here in the darkness one too many times
And stealin' thoughts of holding you has been my only crime
Right then I realized she'd always have the key
And locked up in her arms is the only time I'm free
It only takes one bar to make a prison
I've been doing too much time away from home
It takes two hearts to hold a love together
But it only takes one fool to be alone
It only takes one bar to make a prison and it only takes one fool to be alone

Back To Back Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Alibis

It's a crying shame what fools we have been
To fight for no good reason when neither one of us gives in
I don't love you is what it takes to end it all
But instead we'll go back to bed back to back to face the wall
Back to back we're falling out of love
As giving in gets harder to do we start giving up
We lay together facing the dark each tear that falls is breaking our hearts
Back to back side by side and miles apart
[ fiddle ]
What a fool I am to lay here and not hold her
In a bed where love once burned our hearts that just grow colder
I love you are the words that's on my mind
But the stones we threw in anger have built a wall that we can't climb
Back to back...
Back to back side by side and miles apart

If The Good Die Young Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Alibis

It was Sunday morning I was seven years old in the backyard playing in a big mud hole
I was all decked out ready for church and my brand new suit was all covered in dirt
Mama hit the ceiling she was fit to be tied talking bout how she's gonna tan my hide
Daddy was laughing as I changed my clothes said mama leave the boy alone
Cause if the good die young if the good die young
Mama's little boy gonna have a lot of fun
Cause he's gonna live forever if the good die young
[ guitar ]
Ten years later I had a hot rod Ford constable clocked me at a hundred and four
Judge said boy you're gonna hurt yourself
You'd a long been dead if you were anybody else
Cause if the good die young if the good die young
Oh there ain't a sentence gonna hold you son
Cause you're gonna live forever if the good die young
[ fiddle ]
Well I've got a good heart I wouldn't hurt a soul
But I'm gonna keep rocking till they call that roll
Old St Pete he's gonna have to wait I'm gonna go to Heaven but I might be late
Cause if the good die young Lord if the good die young
Pedal to the metal let your motor run
Cause I'm gonna live forever if the good die young
If the good die young Lord if the good die young
They got the jams I got the fun
I'm gonna live forever if the good die young
Yeah I'm gonna live forever if the good die young

I See It Now Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : I See It Now

It's good to see your face again it's been a while
How'm I doin' well I get by somehow
You sure look good since your new love came in your life
You know I didn't see that fire in you he's found
Oh but I can see it now
Oh I never saw that look in your eyes
And I never had you hold me that tight
And I never saw you dance with your feet off the ground
Oh but I see it now
[ fiddle ]
Holding him you never looked more beautiful
Lettin' go has been so hard on me
And sittin' here it's clear to see what he means to you
The way you look at him it ain't no mystery
He's all I couldn't be
Oh I never saw that look in your eyes...
[ guitar ]
I never saw you dance with your feet off the ground
Oh but I see it now

Guilt Trip Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : I See It Now

Don't need no Atlas where I'm goin' ain't up to me
I'm just a passenger ridin' with an old memory
I can stay in my pajamas lay here on the couch alone
I won't need my keys ain't gonna be leaving the comforts of my own home
Cause I'm going on a guilt trip dragging all the baggage she left behind
Going on a guilt trip my heart's at the wheel and it's driving me out of my mind
We're making record time I'm going on a guilt trip
[ guitar ]
I never know when I'm leavin' or when I'll be comin' back
I might go any time a guilty conscience is always packed
Just because you're looking at me don't assume that I'm all there
In the blink of an eye I'll go back in time and I can leave from anywhere
Cause I'm going on a guilt trip...
[ fiddle ]
Yeah I'm going on a guilt trip...
I'm going yeah on a guilt trip (going on a guilt trip)
I'm going yeah on a guilt trip

If The World Had A Front Porch Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : I See It Now

It was where my mama sat on that old swing with her crochet
It was where grandaddy taught me how to cuss and how to pray
It was where we made our own ice cream those sultry summer nights
Where the bulldog had her puppies and us brothers had our fights
There were many nights I'd sit right there and look out at the stars
To the sound of a distant wippoorwhill or the hum of a passin' car
It was where I first got up the nerve to steal me my first kiss
And it was where I learned to play guitar and pray I had the gift
If the world had a front porch like we did back then
We'd still have our problems but we'd all be friends
Treatin' your neighbor like he's your next of kin
Wouldn't be gone with the wind
If the world had a front porch like we did back then

Purple hulls and pintos I've shelled more than my share
Cause lighting bugs and crickets danced in the evening air
And like a beacon that ol' yellow moon it always led me home
Some how mama always knew just when to leave it on
If the world had a front porch...
Treatin' your neighbor...

Texas Tornado Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : I See It Now

You called me up from Amarillo said you were coming to town
I thought I'd like to tell you hello and drive and old friend around
I pulled up to the airport confident and cool
When you stepped off that plane I knew I was your fool
My little Texas tornado blowing me away again
I swore it wouldn't happen again but I looked at you and then
I'm like a tumbleweed in a wild west Texas wind
You're blowing me away again

You're lying with me in Atlanta it's such a beautiful lie
You play me like a piano I always let you get by
I know I'll go through hell girl when you find someone else
But right now I'm in heaven and I can't help myself
My little Texas tornado...
[ steel ]
I'm like a tumbleweed in a wild west Texas wind
You're blowing me away again
Texas tornado blowing me away again
I swore it wouldn't happen again but I looked at you and then

Hillbilly With A Heartache Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : I See It Now

Now he's a hard workin' easy goin' country boy he wouldn't harm a fly
Nadine down at the hair salon promised she would be his bride
He took it hard when she ran off with the beauty supply salesman
But that's how romance goes sometimes but Herschel don't understand
He'll play the same sad song on the old jukebox drink up every dime he's got
He'll peel out in his pickup truck sling gravel through the parking lot
You wouldn't wanna tangle with a grizzly bear or step on a copperhead snake
So if you cross his path you better beware been wounded by a woman
He's a hillbilly with a heartache

He was gonna buy her a modular home with no wax linoleum floors
Now his mama's worried cause he don't drop by to watch wrestling anymore
He just rides around with a loaded shotgun hanging in his rifle rack
If I was that smooth talkin' city boy I'd sure be watching my back
He'll play the same sad song...

Them big old arms that used to hold her tight cound bring about any man down
When a good ol' boy's been hurt real bad he just don't give a damn
[ fiddle ]
He'll play the same sad song...
Been wounded by a woman he's a hillbilly with a heartache

As Any Fool Can See Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : I See It Now

Lately she's been picking fights dropping hints and just last night
I caught a tear as she slipped off to sleep
She's not here but she's not gone I guess she must be waitin' on
The kind of man I promised her I'd be
As any fool can see
She's gonna cross that line she's got leaving on her mind
And it's too late but what keeps killing me
Is knowing I've been blind as any fool can see
[ fiddle ]
How long did I think she'd stand for me to be the kind of man
That came and went just as I dang well pleased
While she sits at home alone with thoughts and feeling's of her own
Lord knows goodbye would bring me to my knees
As any fool can see...
She's gonna cross that line,,,
She's gonna cross that line...

God Made Woman On A Good Day Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : I See It Now

The sun smiled down all the clouds rolled away
God made woman on a good day
[ guitar ]
Legs long legs atretchin' all the way up from the ground to her thin waist
She looks so fine walkin' this way God made woman on a good day
Hips feminine hips she's got silky hair sexy eyes soft pink lips
A seein' all of that all that I can say is God made woman on a good day
Some like to cook some like to dance but every one of them likes a little romance
He made 'em all great in different ways something for a boy to appreciate

She's got sense got common sense
Like a bee handles honey she saves that money before it's all spent
Now there goes the reason that the bills get paid God made woman on a good day
Some like to cook some like to dance...
Oh God made woman on a good day
[ guitar ]
Might have been a Monday Tuesday I don't know
Could have been a Saturday night
From her toes to her head whe he finished he said
God made woman on a good day

I Got A Feelin' Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : I See It Now

I'm out here stranded on this Oklahoma Road
Nothing but a broken truck heat and dust and a million high line poles
If only I could tap the line I'd be just fine if I could talk to her right now
Cause there's a voice inside of me that's saying something's wrong
Cause I've tried a hundred times and a hundred dimes to reach her on the phone
And like the sun my hearts sinking cause I'm thinking it don't matter anyhow
I got a feelin' she ain't feelin' what I'm feelin' anymore
I got a sneakin' suspicion love is walkin' out the door
Now I'm dealin' with a heartache like I've never felt before
And I got a feelin' she ain't feelin' what I'm feelin' anymore
[ guitar + steel ]
I like this ramblin' life but what a price to pay
To think I'd let a dollar sign and a diesle whine drive her love away
I've got a real premonition she ain't missin' me as much as I miss her
I got a feelin' she ain't feelin'...
[ guitar ]
I got a feelin' she ain't feelin' what I'm feelin' anymore

Cards Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : I See It Now

Here's one from last August that came out of the blue
Says summer's been a scorcher baby and I'm still hot on you
There must be twenty-five or more you signed them everyone
Now I'm sittin' in this lonely room wonderin' what went wrong
Now the cards'are on the table hallmark at its best
Valentines and anniversaries forever yours and all the rest
I'm sortin' through these mem'ries still searching for a clue
Now the cards're on the table and he's holding you
[ piano ]
The sun comes through the curtains but I'm still in the dark
These cards that used to touch me are tearing me apart
I'm torn between tossin' them away or back up on the shelf
Guess my poor heart don't want to play the hand that it's been dealt
Now the cards're on the table...
I'm sortin' through these mem'ries...

There's a little house I drive by everyday going in town
And it just kills me to see how he's let it run down
When I built it to hear you tell it I'd built you a mansion on a hill
And even now that's where part of me still lives
Wish I could hold you and know you still want me
To be the only one on earth you need
Just to make your dreams come true like I once did
I'd give anything to be your everything again

I know I said I wouldn't call you I know the trouble it could bring
But I'm sure by now you've told him I don't mean anything
I'll let you go but I want you to know before this conversation ends
I'd give anything to be your everything again
Wish I could hold you...
Oh oh girl I'd give anything to be your everything again

Is That A Tear Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Time Marches On

The last thing I expected was to get her call tonight
Cause the last thing that I'd heard from her was she'd found Mr Right
But when I came home this evening there it was on my machine
Now I'm just wondering what the hell it means
Said she's sorry that she missed me and she's been doing fine
I've run it back and heard her say those words a hundred times
But something makes me wonder is she happy with her choice
Or is that a tear I hear in her voice
[ fiddle - steel ]
The first time that I listened I thought boy she's got some nerve
But the second time I heard it I heard more than just her words
Am I just wishful thinking or did her voice really crack
I will never know if I don't call her back
Said she's sorry that she missed me...
Oh is that a tear oh is that a tear I hear in her voice

If You Loved Me Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Time Marches On

I see the way he doesn't treat you right I see the tears that you try hide
I feel the heartache that you don't show I wish I had a way to let you know
I would be the shoulder you could cry on
The heart and soul you know you could rely on
With every breath I'll ever take I swear I'll never let forever end
If you loved me if you loved me again

There was a time I had it all with you till it came undone from what I didn't do
Now he's making the same mistakes and when he loses you if it's not too late
I would be the shoulder...
[ guitar ]
With every breath I'll ever take...
If you loved me again

Time Marches On Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Time Marches On

Sister cries out from her baby bed brother runs in feathers on his head
Momma's in a room learning how to sew daddy's drinking beer listneng to the radio
Hank Williams sings Kaw-Liga and Dear John and time marches on time marches on

Sister's using rouge and clear complexion soap
Brother's wearing beads and he smokes a lot of dope
Momma is depressed barly makes a sound daddy's got a girlfriend in another town
Bob Dylan sings Like a Rolling Stone and time marches on time marches on

The South moves North the North moves South a star is born a star burns out
The only thing that stays the same is everything changes everything changes

Sister calls herself sexy grandma brother's on a diet high cholesterol
Momma's out of touch with reality daddy's in the ground beneath the maple tree
As the angels sing an old Hank Williams song time marches on time marches on
Time marches on time marches on time marches on time marches on

Speed Of A Fool Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Time Marches On

Couldn't tell me nothing had to learn it on my own
On the restless side of seventeen the day that I left home
Screaming down that highway with a passion to break any rules
I went crashing at the speed of a fool

She was serving all night coffee at a San Antonio Cafe
She was headed nowhere I was goin' her way
With a trusting soul and a naive heart there was nothing I could do
I went crashing at the speed of a fool

You're either born for holding back or bound for lettin' go
So I throw caution to the wind wherever it may blow
It's the only way I know I go crashing at the speed of a fool

Got a hunger for that highway I know will never end
Lord I can't help what I'm not and won't change what I am
Till the roll is called up yonder to my ownself I'll be true
And go crashing at the speed of a fool
You're either born for holding back...
I go crashing at the speed of a fool

I Know That Hurt By Heart Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Time Marches On

It's dark in here tonight a great place to come and hide from the blues
Hey I don't mean to intrude
But I've seen that look before and I've heard that slamming door too just like you
I know that hurt by heart I've been right where you are
I know how it feels when your world is falling apart
You're not alone tonight I know what lonely's like
I've still got the scars I know that hurt by heart

I hope you don't take this wrong but that smile you're puttin' on can't disguise
These tears in your eyes
And laughing like you don't care can't ease the pain down there inside
Believe me I've tried
I know that hurt by heart...
[ steel - fiddle ]
You're not alone tonight...
I've still got the scars I know that hurt by heart

Sittin' here in Fort Worth and for what it's worth it might as well be Timbuktu
Girl I'm missing you
The further I go in life the more I realize I'm no closer to that elusive moon
I can't put out your fire cause everywhere I turn there's a memory to burn
Somewhere between the moon and you
I fought the chill of the cold hard truth
That rainbow I've been chasin' left my whole world blue
I lost my dreams somewhere between the moon and you

I still see you smile and it haunts me every mile along this winding road
That I walk alone
They say that time should ease the pain but in my heart a bitter rain still lingers on
Could I have been so wrong
I climbed that ladder thinking' I could never fall until I lost it all
Somewhere between the moon and you...
[ steel ]
That rainbow I was chasin'...

Different Man Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Time Marches On

Who knows what I'm doing here tonight on this barstool
As if I didn't know where I should be
Through the darkness of the dim neon and lonely shade of blue
The light is a mighty hard thing to see but sittin' here it just occurred to me
I was the man she counted on to do her right Lord she was wrong
I was the man who wasn't there who made it seem he didn't care
Now she needs someone to hold her to make her feel alive
And she'll be with a different man tonight

I can't believe I turned my back on the love there in her heart
And turned away from those tears there in her eyes
Now I know where I belong is right there in her arms
Though it took so long for me to see the light
I'm leaving here a different man tonight
I was the man she counted on...
[ guitar ]
Now she needs someone to hold her and make her feel alive
She'll be with a different man tonight oh she'll be with a different man tonight

Excitable Boy Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Time Marches On

I was one or two just lying in my crib
Shaking that rattle like I always did
Susie strolled in that little girl next door
Next thing you know we were rolling on the floor
Mama came a runnin' to her little pride and joy
Said bless his little heart he's an excitable boy

High school redneck rebel to the bone
Running eighty miles an hour in a thirty mile zone
Steal a little kiss skip a little school
Break another heart bend another rule
Cop tells the principal he's only making noise
Cut the kid some slack he's an excitable boy

I've been a renegade since the day I was born I get a little carried away
Never meant to do nobody no harm I gotta rock it I can't stop it
I ain't about to change
[ fiddle - guitar ]
Parking with my darling fogging up the glass
Slipping cross the truck seat tryin' to make a pass
My baby said stop we gotta take it slow
But you know me I'm always raring to go
It's the way I am I don't have no choice
What can I say I'm an excitable boy
I've been a renegade since the day I was born...
What can I say I'm an excitable boy what can I say I'm an excitable boy
[ guitar - piano ]
Ah you know I just can't help myself it's just the way I am

Stars Over Texas Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Time Marches On

As you lie in my arms girl my heart's on my sleeve
Words come so hard in moments like these
There's feelings I have that are so hard to show
But right now there's one thing I want you to know
As long as the tides ebb the earth turns the sun sets I promise I'll always be true
As long as there's stars over Texas darling I'll hang the moon for you

I know I have stumbled and caused you some tears
When you needed me most I haven't always been here
I know I'm not always the man I should be
But don't ever wonder what you mean to me
As long as the tides ebb...
[ mandolin ]
And as long as there's stars over Texas darling I'll hang the moon for you
Darling I'll hang the moon for you

From What We Give Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : Time Marches On

Johnny Baker works down at the mill
Makes enough to make ends meet and pay his bills
Even though he comes from the wrong side of the tracks
He's the first on there to lend a hand or give the shirt right off his back
From what we give we make a living those dollars diamonds and gold
But that old cliche is a given you reap what you sow
When you reach out your hand and your heart then your soul is satisfied
From what we give we make a living from what we give we make a life

Mr Miller's got a mansion on the hill
He spent his whole life chasing that almighty dollar bill
But all his so-called riches somethings missing in his soul
It takes more than havin' everything to make a man feel whole
From what we give we make a living...
[ guitar ]
When you reach out your hand...
What we give we make a living from what we give we make a life

Better Man, Better Off Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : The Coast Is Clear

The hardest thing I'll ever do is to walk away still loving you
But I'd give anything if you loved me something's just ain't meant to be
Can't say it's all been time lost
And in the long run I'd be a better man better off
Gonna find my pride and self esteam get on with my life follow my dreams
Ain't lookin' back
Learn from my mistakes once I've past this heartache
I know when the hurtin' stops I'll be a better man better off

I know Rome wasn't built in a day there's a lot of good mem'ries in my way
If I had it all to do over again wouldn't change a thing cept for the end
You want to be something you gotta pay the cost
But in the long run I'll be a better man better off
Gonna find my pride...
[ guitar ]
I'm gonna learn from my mistakes once I've past this heartache
I know when the hurtin' stops I'll be a better man better off
A better man better off a whole lot better off
[ guitar ]

Coast Is Clear Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : The Coast Is Clear

Say the weather in Atlanta is foggy and gray your work gets harder everyday
And your new boyfriend is holding on too tight
I got a gig at the beach a room with a view the only thing missing here is you
Some fresh ocean breeze might ease your mind
We could walk barefoot through the warm wet sand
Take a second look at what we had
I been thinkin' a lot since I been here
Past the neon lights and the LA haze I'm a different man these days
So come on out the coast is clear

Got a picture in my wallet from back in '91
That week we spent in the Santa Belle sun
Ridin' the wave of our love those were good times
But somewhere I got lost and let you down
Young and naive I didn't know what I'd found
But I do now and there ain't a cloud in my mind
We could walk barefoot...
Yeah come on out the coast is clear
Oh oh oh the coast is clear oh oh oh the coast is clear the coast is clear

Any Minute Now Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : The Coast Is Clear

I always pride myself on being strong you've never seen me cry and carry on
But after seeing you with your new love suddenly I'm all choked up
Any minute now you're gonna see years of tears rolling down my cheeks
A flash flood of old memories will come pouring out
Any minute now it won't be long it's been coming since you've been gone
I'm holding back what I can't hold on I'm gonna cry out loud any minute now

Said I'd always live by my own rules swore I'd never be nobodys fool
Thought I knew how to hide the pain but that's all about to change
Any minute now you're gonna see...
Any minute now oh oh any minute now any minute now

While You Sleep Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : The Coast Is Clear

I don't say I love you quite enough I know
Sometimes I go for days I'm ashamed to say
The world moves so fast and the words come so slow
And I let those excuses get in my way
While you sleep sometimes I lie awake and watch you breath
In the silence that surrounds the dead of night
Bear my soul that all the words sound right
I pray the lord our hearts to keep while you sleep
[ piano ]
Day's march through our lives like a sad parade
Our laughter and tears our hopes and fears
And I keep remembering things I forget to say
And perhaps someday I let you know my dear that
While you sleep sometimes...
I pray the lord our hearts to keep while you sleep

How A Cowgirl Says Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : The Coast Is Clear

A cup of coffee with the first sunlight at a last chance Texaco
I'm thumbin' through a worn out roadmap tryin' to decide which way to go
These empty miles that are memory they just seem to linger on
She left me on this lost highway wondering why and where she'd gone
That's how a cowgirl breaks a young man's heart
That's how my whole world slowly came apart
With a cold and empty stare as if I wasn't there she didn't even stop to cry
That's how a cowgirl says goodbye

Called up her mom down in Abilene just to find out how she fared
She said she'd stopped a while in San Antone spent some time with an old friend
With all this distance in between us I'm sure I never cross her mind
And it may take all these roads ahead just to leave it all behind
That's how a cowgirl breaks...
That's how a cowgirl breaks...

One Step Ahead Of The Storm Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : The Coast Is Clear

Broke down on the interstate just outside of Wichita
I said dont' worry baby it'll be alright
Two young and crazy kids who thought we knew it all
California hunger in our eyes
I could smell the rain I could feel the wind I could see the clouds rolling in
But in the arms of love we stayed safe and warm one step ahead of the storm

Our California dreams went south so we headed east to Baton Rouge
You said don't worry baby it'll be alright
Louisiana holds a brighter day had my doubts to tell the truth
But through it all you were right there by my side
I could smell the rain...

Hard times knocking at your door from the cradle to the grave
You gotta fight like the devil just to keep the wolves at bay
[ guitar ]
Hey I could smell the rain...
Oh we were one step ahead of the storm

In A Moment Of Weakness Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : The Coast Is Clear

I knew she was lonely and I was alone
A stranger in a strange town too far from home
Her eyes blue as diamonds her hair black as coal
I could feel her desire burning like fire right down to my soul
In a moment of weakness who would have known
God was in heaven you were at home
I could have easily fallen forgotten till dawn
But in a moment of weakness your love held strong

I could say I wasn't tempted that would be a lie
A man is only human man and she was so alive
Could have said it didn't matter thrown caution to the wind
Could have been in her arms truth is my heart wouldn't let me give in
In a moment of weakness...
In a moment of weakness your love held strong

Livin' In Black And White Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : The Coast Is Clear

This makin' a livin' is killing me I work like a dog in this hot factory
Can't even afford a vacation when I've got the time
But I've got road maps of Mexico brochures and pictures of places to go
Dreaming in color livin' in black and white
I can drink margaritas with sweet senoritas work on my tropical tan
Dangle my feet in the crystal blue waters lay in the snow white sand
Well I've never been down to Mexico but I'm gonna go there tonight
I'm dreaming in color livin' in black and white
[ guitar ]
I'd like to buy a new Cadillac build me a house with a pool out back
And eat at the country club every Saturday night
But there ain't much pay in my ol' paycheck
But I'll win the lotta one day I bet
I'm dreaming in color livin' in black and white
I can drink margaritas...
Oh oh I'm dreaming in color livin' in black and white

I Hit The Ground Crawlin' Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : The Coast Is Clear

It's true I lied I cheated and the truth is that ain't all
While you were thinking of me I was busy thinking of myself
I never gave and I took all I needed running wild until you walked
And since you left if you're wondering where I fell
Well I hit the ground crawlin' I heard your memory callin'
And I can see from the bottom of this bottle I'm clinging to
That the reason you're long gone is that I treated you so wrong
But I hit the ground crawlin' right back to you
[ guitar ]
To get us back together I'll cry I'll beg I'll bend
I swear I've learned my lesson darling don't give up on me
Cause the nights go on forever will the heartache ever end
Can't stand to live without you I'm begging on bended knees
Cause I hit the ground crawlin'...
Yeah I hit the ground crawlin' right back to you

As Lonesome As It Gets Lyrics

Artist : TRACY LAWRENCE
Album : The Coast Is Clear

I've been sittin' here alone in the darkness
With the sound of goodbye ringing in my head
I don't know how much longer I can go on like this
I'm about as lonesome as it gets just about as lonesome as it gets
For a long time now we've been drifting apart
I should have been glad to see you go
But now that it's over and you're on a silver jet
I'm about as lonesome as it gets just about as lonesome as it gets
If it rained straight whiskey forty days and nights
It wouldn't be enough to numb this hurt I feel
Keep this lump that's in my throat from chokin' me to death
I'm about as lonesome as it gets just about as lonesome as it gets
[ guitar - fiddle ]
When they dig a six foot hole in the ground and throw the dirt over me
Just let these words mark my final place of rest
This is as lonesome as it gets damn sure as lonesome as it gets
If it rained straight whiskey...
I'm about as lonesome as it gets just about as lonesome as it gets
