What Was You Thinking Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : I Don't Want To Miss A Thing

Mister you don't know me
But I've heard about you
And how you spend your nights in here
Just what you put her through.

So I came here to find out
If they sell the drink so strong
It would make a man fool enough
To go and do her wrong.

Tell me what was you thinkin'
What was you drinkin'
I don't want none of that stuff
It must have made you lose your mind
Or you never would've lost her love
It would really help me
Mister if you tell me
I'll never bother you again.
What was you thinkin'?
What was you drinkin'?

I guess I'd better go now
It's gettin' kind of late
And I don't have to tell you
She don't like to wait.

I heard it's better to have loved and lost
And I must say I agree
Since you're the one who lost her love
And drove her straight to me.

But tell me what was you thinkin'
What was you drinkin'
I don't want none of that stuff
It must have made you lose your mind
Or you never would've lost her love
It would really help me
Mister if you tell me
I'll never bother you again
What was you thinkin'
What was you drinkin'?

Tell me what was you thinkin'
What was you drinkin'
I don't want none of that stuff
It must have made you lose your mind
Or you never would've lost her love
It would really help me
Mister if you tell me
I'll never bother you again
What was you thinkin'
What was you drinkin'?..

I'm Gone Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : I Don't Want To Miss A Thing

Sittin' at a table conversation
Me and my buddies
I follow what they're sayin'
100% of the daily events
But the minute she walks in my direction
Well, there goes my span of attention
One look in her eyes
And I'm gone for a ride.

I'm gone, I'm history
She gets the best of me
My mind drifts away
And instantly
I'm in another world
Wishin' she was my girl
And nothin' else matters at all
I'm gone like yesterday
To another time and place
One sweet smile and I get swept away
She gives me just enough to dream on
And I'm gone.

Yeah, I been comin' in here for quite some time
I've got it all figured out in my mind
What I wanna say, yeah, today's the day
Oh here she comes, heart be steady
Play it cool, I got the words ready
She says hello, and away I go.

I'm gone, I'm history
She gets the best of me
My mind drifts away
And instantly
I'm in another world
Wishin' she was my girl
And nothin' else matters at all
I'm gone like yesterday
To another time and place
One sweet smile and I get swept away
She gives me just enough to dream on
And I'm gone.

I'm gone, I'm history
She gets the best of me
My mind drifts away
And instantly
I'm in another world
Wishin' she was my girl
And nothin' else matters at all
I'm gone like yesterday
To another time and place
One sweet smile and I get swept away
She gives me just enough to dream on
And I'm gone.

I'm gone...

Let's Talk About Our Love Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : I Don't Want To Miss A Thing

Well, I don't wanna hear no more
About how he broke your heart
Relivin' your ol' memories is tearin' me apart
I'd just soon forget about the past
'Cause that's the one thing we can't change
Let's stop this useless conversation
That's just lovin' time we're wastin'
Losin' any more would be a shame.

Let's talk about you and me, let's talk about forever
How it's gonna be and how there'll never
Come a day when we give up on us
Let's talk about the way we feel
Whenever we're together
And how we never get enough
Let's talk about the good stuff
Let's talk about our love.

Now, we've been over everything he's ever done to you
It's time you figured out that we've got better things to do
I don't mean to sound like I don't care
Girl you know you're the one I love
You can tell me anything you want to
And everything you've ever been through
But when it comes to him I've heard enough.

Let's talk about you and me, let's talk about forever
How it's gonna be and how there'll never
Come a day when we give up on us
Let's talk about the way we feel
Whenever we're together
And how we never get enough
Let's talk about the good stuff
Let's talk about our love.

Let's talk about the way we feel
Whenever we're together
And how we never get enough
Let's talk about the good stuff
Let's talk about our love.

Let's talk about the good stuff
Let's talk about our love...

Fallin' Never Felt So Good Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Lost In The Feeling

There's a photo in my baby book
Of the first step that I ever took
I ended up on my butt with a puzzled look
Ever since I've been kinda confused
When life tripped me up I was easily bruised
But time has a way of healing wounds
Now, I'm a guy who does what he feels
But I never seem to spot that banana peel
With eyes shut tight and nerves of steel
I'm takin' the plunge, baby head over heels.

Fallin' never felt so good
It don't scare me like I thought it would
Tumblin' down, droppin' fast
I got a feelin' that it's gonna last
Here I come baby ooh, ooh, ooh
Fallin' in love with you.

Who can say what may lie in store
Smooth sailin' on a sea of love or
Runnin' aground on a rocky shore
Now that I've found you I'm not lettin' go
'Cause I've been searchin' high and low
Only one thing that I know
The higher you take me the deeper I go.

Fallin' never felt so good
It don't scare me like I thought it would
Tumblin' down, droppin' fast
I got a feelin' that it's gonna last
Here I come baby ooh, ooh, ooh
Fallin' in love with you.

Fallin' never felt so good
It don't scare me like I thought it would
Tumblin' down, droppin' fast
I got a feelin' that it's gonna last
Here I come baby ooh, ooh, ooh
Fallin' in love with you.

Fallin' never felt so good
It don't scare me like I thought it would
Tumblin' down, droppin' fast
I got a feelin' that it's gonna last
Here I come baby ooh, ooh, ooh
Fallin' in love with you...

Confessin' My Love Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Lost In The Feeling

I tossed and turned and tried countin' sheep
When will I ever learn how I'll ever sleep
'Til you're by my side it's just a waste of time
Ain't no use tryin' to get you off my mind.

So I guess I'll be confessin' my love,
Confessin' my love
There ain't gonna be no restin' at all
'Cause I want you too much
I might get all embarrassed and a little tongue-tied
'Cause I ain't had no lessons in expressin' it right
Yes, I guess I'll be confessin' my love to you tonight.

Toughest thing to do is up and speak my mind
I've been wantin' you for too long a time
I just can't take this anymore
'Bout to hear some knockin' on your front door.

So I guess I'll be confessin' my love,
Confessin' my love
There ain't gonna be no restin' at all
'Cause I want you too much
I get all embarrassed and a little tongue-tied
'Cause I ain't had no lessons in expressin' it right
Yes, I guess I'll be confessin' my love to you tonight.

Yes, I guess I'll be confessin' my love to you tonight.

Yes, I'll be confessin'
Yes, I'll be confessin' my love to you tonight.

Yes, I'll be confessin'
Yes, I'll be confessin' my love to you tonight.

Yes, I'll be confessin'
Yes, I'll be confessin' my love to you tonight.

Yes, I'll be confessin'
Yes, I'll be confessin' my love to you tonight...

Halfway Back To Birmingham Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Lost In The Feeling

Summer after graduation
Two kids stuck in Alabama
We'd be lovers any way we could
A ten buck wedding ceremony
A guy outside the courthouse told me
The weather down in South Beach
sure was good
So we hit the road like any dreamers would

She was mine for a time in Miami
Thought I had her in the palm of my hand
Like the sunrise the truth finally hit me
That her heart was halfway back to Birmingham

This ain't what she really wanted
So baby we went on back to Mama

Found a note when I got home last night
Left a fifty for the landlord
Nothin' here to stay around for
Ain't but one way left to make it right
So I'm headed for that Alabama line

She was mine for a time in Miami
But things don't always fw9ork out like you plan
Now I'm nearly out of gas and it's raining
But I'm almost halfway back to Birmingham

Like the sunrise the truth finally hit me
That her heart was halfway back to Birmingham

Try Being Me Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Lost In The Feeling

You say you don't know where to start
Telling me is breakin' your heart
It's not that you don't care for me
It's just that you're not in love anymore
You stare at the floor.
You say it's no one's fault that feelings change
And you'd rather not get into blame
You don't know if it's choice or fate
But you can't fight this need to be set free
Tomorrow you'll leave
You tell me this is hard for you
You should try being me.

Try watching dreams
Crash to the ground without warning
Try not to beg
When the one you love says they're going
Hell's near and you know it
You tell me this is hard for you
You should try being me.

You say you don't deny what we had
But we can't tie the future to the past
I'll always be a part of you
And hurting me's the last thing on your mind
But you can't live a lie
You tell me this is hard for you
You should try being me.

Try watching dreams
Crash to the ground without warning
Try not to beg
When the one you love says they're going
Hell's near and you know it
You tell me this is hard for you
You should try being me...

Go Away Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Lost In The Feeling

I was hoping you'd be gone
Tonight when I got home
What are you still waiting for
You're probably thinking that
She won't like it where she's at
And she'll come knocking on my door
I used to believe that too
But I don't anymore.

So go away, blues don't hand around
She's gone, let me love again somehow
I've tried, but I could not make her stay
So be like her and go away.

Well, here we are again
My old foul-weathered friend
Not much left to talk about
We've cried and shared some laughs
Reminiscing this and that
But it all seems so tiresome now
You've been good company
But you wore your welcome thin.

So go away, blues don't hand around
She's gone, let me love again somehow
I've tried, but I could not make her stay
So be like her and go away.

Go away, blues don't hand around
She's gone, let me love again somehow
I've tried, but I could not make her stay
So be like her and go away...

It Pays Big Money Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Lost In The Feeling

My oldest brother Tommy
Was a lineman rest his soul
His job was hanging hot wires
On them power company poles
I said with all of that high voltage
Don't it scare you half to death?
He said it makes me kinda nervous
But I just can't help myself.

It pays big money and boy I'm into that
It pays big money if you're willin' to take a chance
I'll tell you sonny, you ought to see my bank account
It paid big money but he sure can't spend it now.

My dear departed cousin
Used to put in forty hours
Changing all them light bulbs
On them television towers
Every morning bright and early
He'd climb up in the sky
And I didn't understand it
So one day I asked him why, he said.

It pays big money and boy I'm into that
It pays big money if you're willin' to take a chance
I'll tell you sonny you ought to see my bank account
It paid big money but he sure can't spend it now.

My late Uncle Charlie
Was a demolition man
And he traveled all over the country
Blasting holes in this great land
And he carried a case of dynamite
Everywhere he went
And he'd smoke them big long cigars
'Til it got the best of him, but.

It pays big money and boy I'm into that
It pays big money if you're willin' to take a chance
I'll tell you sonny you ought to see my bank account
It paid big money but he sure can't spend it now.

Now the moral of this story
Is don't go getting' yourself killed
Be kind to your rich relatives
And they might just leave you in their will
That pays big money having foolish kin.

It pays big money, I guess I owe it all to them
I'll tell you sonny you ought to see my bank account
It pays big money think I'll go spend some of it now...

Love In The Hot Afternoon Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Lost In The Feeling
(originally by Gene Watson)

From somewhere outside I hear the street vendor cry file' gumbo
Through my window I see him going down the street and he don't know
That she fell right to sleep in the damp
Tangled sheet so soon
After love in the hot afternoon

Now the bourbon street lady sleeps like a baby in the shadows
She was new to me and fully of mystery but now I know
That she's just a girl and I'm just a guy in the room
For love in the hot afternoon

We got high in the park this morning and we sat without talking
Then we came back here in the heat of the day tired of walking
Where under her breathe she hummed to herself a tune
Of love in the hot afternoon

Now the bourbon street lady sleeps like a baby in the shadows
She was new to me and fully of mystery but now I know
That she's just a girl and I'm just a guy in the room
For love in the hot afternoon

Angelina Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Lost In The Feeling

Always knew it, I'd recognize your face
And I rehearsed it, just what I would say
But then I saw you and all that I could do
Was just smile
In your brown eyes the past disappeared
And my future was suddenly so clear
I was made for, I was meant for lovin' you.

Oh Angelina, I loved ya
Long before I'd ever seen ya
So many nights I could only dream ya
But now you're here, my Angelina.

I watch the moonlight softly brush your hair
Are you a vision; are you really there?
But then you touch me and the fantasy is so real.

Oh Angelina, I loved ya
Long before I'd ever seen ya
So many nights I could only dream ya
But now you're here, my Angelina.

This love that I feel
Knows no beginning and no end
'Cause I can't remember when
I didn't love you.

Oh Angelina, I loved ya
Long before I'd ever seen ya
So many nights I could only dream ya
But now you're here, my Angelina.

Oh Angelina, each day there's somethin' new
I love about you
And I wonder how I ever lived without you
Oh, how I need you, my Angelina.

Oh, how I ever lived without you
How I need you, my Angelina...

Lost In The Feeling Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Lost In The Feeling

We step out on the dance floor the band starts to play
Holding you close I get carried away
Finding that falling is easy to do
Lost in the feeling with you

Time's standing still as I Whirl you around
We're dancing without even touching the ground
Finding that falling is easy to do
Lost in the feeling with you

No words are spoken
None need to be said
You and the music
Have gone to my head

But I'll just go on when the music is through
Lost in the feeling with you
Lost in the feeling with you
Lost in the feeling with you

Somewhere Out There Tonight Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Lost In The Feeling

Well, I'm slippin' on my old party clothes
Wondering if they're still in style
Ain't had 'em on since you've been gone
And that's been a long long while.

And I wonder if these old dancing shoes
Will they still feel right?
Guess I'll never know unless I go
Somewhere out there tonight.

Been livin' alone
Since you've been gone
Hoping you might return
And I've yet to let
A stranger in my door
But I'm feeling more willing
Than ever before.

Oh, I wonder if I'll feel out of place
Should new arms hold me tight
Guess I'll never know unless I go
Somewhere out there tonight.

Yeah, I wonder if I'll feel out of place
Should new arms hold me tight
Guess I'll never know unless I go
Somewhere out there tonight...

Don't Know Why I Do It Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

Have you ever stared down in the bottom of a coffee cup
And discovered that you got no reason staying up
Right at the moment when
The caffine is kickin' in.

So you break down and give an old girlfriend a call
Then after two hours of hearing her mindless talk
You remember what you dumped her for
And you wish you hadn't opened that door.

I do it and I don't know why
Hate to admit it but I think that I
Got something rollin' round loose inside
That never was screwed down tight
I don't know why I do it
But I do it all the time.

Have you ever worked hard
To line your pockets with dough
Then let a little girl and love start burning a hole
Knowing that she'll break your heart
And max out your credit cards.

I do it and I don't know why
Hate to admit it but I think that I
Got something rollin' round loose inside
That never was screwed down tight
No, I don't know why I do it
But I do it all the time.

Have you ever fallin' for a girls thinkin' she's the one
And you get a funny feeling that your ramblin' days are done
You can tell she loves you so much
You have to go and screw it up.

I do it and I don't know why
Hate to admit it but I think that I
Got something rollin' round loose inside
That never was screwed down tight
No, I don't know why I do it
I do it, I do it, I do it
I do it and I don't know why
I got a habit of wreckin' my life
Keep leaning left when I want to go right
You know it isn't like I haven't tried
I don't know why I do it
But I do it all the time.

(Why do it, Don't know why I do it)
I don't know why I do it,
But I do it all the time...

She Was Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

She started her new life ten dollars in debt
That's all it took to get started back then
A trip to the courthouse across the state line
No one could stop her, she'd made up her mind
He was eighteen, she wasn't

But she said she was and never thought twice
Came back home as my daddy's wife
She just shook her head when her momma said
"Are you sure he's the one?" She was

He took a job and farmed on the side
He made the ends meet, but she kept 'em tied
Changes were coming to their little world
She said "What would you like, a boy or a girl?"
He said "Are you?"

She said she was and never thought twice
'Bout takin the next step in building their lives
Soon there were three and she tried to be
Everything to us And she was

Those precious moments turned into years
In what seemed like the blink of an eye
I held her hand as I leaned down to ask her
"Momma, Are you ready to say goodbye?"

She said she was but she thought twice
Holdin' my hand as she let go of life
Daddy always said a woman like her
Would be hard to give up
And she was

She was

If there ever was a picture of love,
She was

Sacred As A Sunday Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

Her momma cried
Her daddy prayed
I'd go away
And let her be
But her blue eyes
Looked in my heart
Faced the dark
Instilled in me
She opened up her bible
And turned on the charm
I crawled out of the bottle
Right into her arms

She's got the heart of an angel
She loves me like the devil
She took a down an outer
Pulled me up to her level
She's one in a million
But I knew I'd find her one day
Love as wild as a saturday night
And sacred as a sunday
Sacred as a sunday

Her pure love
Against my skin
Ain't no sin
It's heavining
Her soft touch
Burns like a fire
Flames of desire
Consuming me
Something happens to me
When her lips touch mine
Something goes right through me
A feeling so divine

She's got the heart of an angel
She loves me like the devil
She took a down an outer
Pulled me up to her level
She's one in a million
But I knew I'd find her one day
Love as wild as a saturday night
And sacred as a sunday

She's got the heart of an angel
She loves me like the devil
She took a down an outer
Pulled me to her level
She's one in a million
I knew I'd find her one day
Love as wild as a saturday night
And sacred as a sunday
Sacred as a sunday
Sacred as a sunday
She's sacred as a sunday

I'm In Love With A Married Woman Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

We sit alone in the darkest corner
Waitress comes and takes our order
And she looks at us so suspiciously
It's plain to see that we're lovers
Tryin' to be alone with each other
It's so hard for us to break free
She whispers softly I love you
This ain't your average rendezvous

Cause I'm in love with a married woman
I don't care, I don't care who know it
I'm in love with a married woman
On her left hand there's a wedding band
That she wears faithfully
And I thank God she's married to me

No cheap hotel where we'll check-in
No other lives we'll be wreckin'
With alibis to hide a cheaters kiss
'cause if there's lipstick on my collar
You can bet your bottom dollar
It's the color she wears on nights like this
Every friday here at five
I try to keep the fire alive

Population Minus One Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

What the hell was I thinkin'
Comin' and livin' in the concrete canyon
Trying to swim upstream in a river of vacant eyed people
Where are they going so fast?
What in the world could be that important?
And I miss mama
Wonder what she's doing
Probably looking out that kichen window
At the green grass and that clear sky
Daddy's probably sneakin' up behind her
Putting his hands around her waist
Restin' his head on her shoulder
Telling her how much he loves her
That's what I ought to be doing with you right now.

I find it hard breathe
Without you next to me
Gonna leave this phone hangin', I'm gone
Before the sun goes down
Gonna ditch this town
Population minus, one.

Oh yeah, I know what I was thinkin', I wasn't
I came this close to making the biggest mistake of my life
Is that a train I hear in the background?
You're on the porch, aren't you?
Got your head resting on that pillow on the swing
Your bare feet propped up on those chain links
Your toenails painted cotton candy pink, ah, man
Let's see, smog or the smell of summer in your hair
Yea, I'm outta here.

I find it hard breathe
Without you next to me
Gonna leave this phone hangin', I'm gone
Before the sun goes down
Gonna ditch this town
Population minus, one.

Baby, I can't tell you how good it felt
To roll back into this little map dot
Seeing those sugar maples shading mainstreet
And I never noticed it before but I smiled when I saw
All those post game celebration. beer bottle dents
In that deer crossing sign
You know some of those were ours
Kiss me, kiss me again.

I find it hard breathe
Without you next to me
Gonna leave this phone hangin', I'm gone
Before the sun goes down
Gonna ditch this town
Population minus, one.

Just look at you and me
Right where we need to be, Yeah...

You'd Be Wrong Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

You would think after all this time
I wouldn't let you in tonight
That all those feelings for you would be gone
You would think but you'd be wrong.

You would think one little kiss
Wouldn't tempt me like this
That I'd have pride and pretend to be strong
You would think but you'd be wrong.

Love can be so deceivin'
I should hate you but I don't
No matter what I do my heart
Just thinks what it wants.

Love can be so deceivin'
I should hate you but I don't
No matter what I do my heart
Still wants what it wants.

You would think that just because
I told the truth, confessed my love
I'd take you back, rather than be alone
You would think but you'd be wrong...

I Want My Baby Back Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

Your eyes have been a different kind of blue
I can feel the sadness when I'm touching you
It's as if lately you've been standing in sinkin sand
Before you go down any deeper
Let me help, take my hand.

I want my baby back
I miss the way you used to laugh
And dance around to your own beat
So alive so carefree.
I want my baby back
Where is the old you hiding at
You may be here, but baby
You've been gone to long.

Girl, you're in a state I've never seen you in
It breaks my heart to see you in a downward spin
You're looking lost but you don't have to be alone
Why don't you talk to me
Tell me what's going on.

I want my baby back
I miss the way you used to laugh
And dance around to your own beat
So alive so carefree.
I want my baby back
Where is the old you hiding at
You may be here, but baby
You've been gone to long.

I want to see that crazy smile
Like you just might do something wild
There it is, here it comes
Just in time you could use a little fun.

I want my baby back
I miss the way you used to laugh
And dance around to your own beat
So alive, so carefree.
I want my baby back
Where is the old you hiding at
You may be here, but baby
You've been gone to long.

I want my, baby back.

I want my, baby back.

Oh, bring her back.

I want my, baby back...

Just Right For You Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

In my mind I'm thinner and I'm taller
Younger too with a little more hair
I saw myself going so much farther

Oh but girl there you are
Smiling at the plain old me
Those honest eyes
In love with what they see
And I go from perfect to just right for you

In my mind I'm rugged and I'm charming
The hero who might save the day
Kinda' like a modern Gary Cooper

Oh but girl there you are
Smiling at the plain old me
Those honest eyes
In love with what they see
And I go from perfect to just right for you

Oh but girl there you are
Smiling at the plain old me
Those honest eyes
In love with what they see
And I go from perfect to just right for you

My Dreams Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

It's funny all the things a man can do when he's asleep
Like playing right field for the Red Sox on national TV
Or the next night I could the CEO of IBM
Or making out with Sandra Bullock in the movie we're both in
Oh, how perfect it would be
If my life we're like my dreams.

But then again there is the one
Where it's a normal day at work
And I realize that I'm not wearing pants
Or the one where I'm skydiving
And my parachute won't open
And I wake up screaming just before I land
On second thought I think I'll stick with my reality
'Cause it's a scary place to be
There's no logic, there's no guarantee
In my dreams.

John Lennon takes me riding in his yellow submarine
Last night he even told me what I am the walrus means
The alarm clock started ringing
I hit snooze and closed my eyes
And won a million bucks in Vegas every time I rolled the dice
Oh, how perfect it would be
If my life we're like my dreams.

But then again there is the one
Where I'm running through the forest
From a psycho with a meat hook for a hand
Or the one where Sandra Bullock
Leaves me standing at the alter
'Cause I got busted cutting off my mattress tag
On second thought I think I'll stick with my reality
'Cause it's a scary place to be
There's no logic, there's no guarantee
In my dreams.

Oh how perfect it would be
If my life we're like my dreams
But then again there is the one
Where it's a normal day at work
And I realize that I'm not wearing pants
Or the one where I'm skydiving
And my parachute won't open
And I realize that I'm not wearing pants
But then again there is the one
Where I'm running through the forest
And I realize that I'm not wearing pants
Or the one where Sandra Bullock
Leaves me standing at the alter
And I realize that I'm not wearing pants...

I Drew Me Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

Little Billy drew a firefighter
Mary drew a doctor
Bobby he just drew a ball
We all knew he'd play soccer
Richard drew a race car
And Taylor drew a guitar on her knees
And I drew me.

With you
Your eyes are as far as I could see
Of all the things a boy would want to be
Back then I knew
So I drew me with you.

Now, Billy ain't no firefighter
And Mary's not a doctor
Bobby got to college but
Tore his knee up playing soccer
Richard watches NASCAR
And Tayor's raising babies on her knee
And as for me.

I'm with you
Your eyes are as far as I could see
No one wound up what they thought they'd be
But me I knew back when I drew me
With you
Your eyes are as far as I could see
Of all the things a boy would want to be
Back then I knew
So I drew me with you...

Good Night To Be Lonely Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Mark Chesnutt

Tired of channel surfing
El Camino ain't working
It's Monday night and I'm hurtin' for company
Bummed a ride to the hideaway
I'm the only guy in the place
Bored silly wasn't gonna stay
Then she walked in, heaven sent
And it occurs to me

What a good night to be lonely
Somebody's looking out for me
Oh what an opportunity
Right out of the blue
Is it luck or a twist of fate
Doesn't really matter either way
It's a good night, a good night to be lonely

Dollars worth of quarters
played some songs and ordered
One for me and one for her as I tipped my hat
Said that she felt restless
Just moved here from Texas
That's when I suggested
Maybe she could dance with me
She said thought you'd never ask

What a good night to be lonely
Somebody's looking out for me
Oh what an opportunity
Right out of the blue
Is it luck or a twist of fate
Doesn't really matter either way
It's a good night, a good night to be lonely

She's following I'm leading
And it feels like I'm dreamin'

What a good night to be lonely
Somebody's looking out for me
Oh what an opportunity
Right out of the blue
Is it luck or a twist of fate
Doesn't really matter either way
It's a good night, a good night to be lonely

Somebody Save The Honky Tonks Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

I drove down to The Trap but the joint was closed
Lately they've been droppin' like Dominos
All of my favorite waterin' holes are dryin' up
Tell me is it too much for a man to ask
To hear Haggard and Jones sing CC Waterback
With the lights so low
And cold drafts will cost you one buck
Enough's enough.

Somebody save the honky tonks
The hard wood floor and the quarter jukebox
Where's the workin' man gonna go to get tore up
When the last one's tore down
Somebody save the neon lights
And the cinderblock shacks crossed the county line
Everyday another piece of history's lost
Somebody save the honky tonks.

Well, it's enough to bring a tear to a blood shot eye
Not knowin' where to go on a Friday night
To get down and get loud
And unwind from a hard day
Listen, we the people got a make a stand
Maybe write a letter to our congressman
Show some support for the drinkin' man
We can't wait, until it's too late.

Somebody save the honky tonks
The hard wood floor and the quarter jukebox
Where's the workin' man gonna go to get tore up
When the last one's tore down
Somebody Save the neon lights
And the cinderblock shacks crossed the county line
Everyday another piece of history's lost
Somebody save the honky tonks.

Why don't they take that ol' wreckin' ball
To the uppity bars, down at the mall
All I'm askin, all I want
Somebody save the honky tonks.

I'm A Saint Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

Here's some things about me you might wanna know.
I'm gonna tell you even if you don't.
I come from the country, I still been to town.
An' I like dogs but just not in the house.
But I might skip church one Sunday,
To catch the football game,
But I'll give twice as much next week,
When they pass the offerin' plate.

I'm just ordinary on most days,.
Extraordinary on my best.
I got a good job, but the way I spend money,
I never have any left.
Hey, I drink too much coffee,
An' I'm always runnin' late.
I was born a sinner,
But my Momma thinks I'm a saint.

I've had my share of heartaches, bounced a couple checks
I had a wife, but now I've got an ex.
No, I wont never be the President, hel,l I barely finished school,
But I know Justin sings lead for N'Sync, so my kids think I'm cool.

I'm just ordinary on most days,.
Extraordinary on my best.
I got a good job, but the way I spend money,
I never have any left.
I drink too much coffee,
An' I'm always runnin' late.
But I was born a sinner,
But my Momma thinks I'm a saint.

I know there are some who live life differently,
But there's a lot more people who are just like me.

Ordinary on most days,
Extraordinary on my best.
I got a good job, but the way I spend money,
I never have any left.
Yeah, I drink too much coffee,
An' I'm always runnin' late.
I was born a sinner,
But my Momma thinks I'm a saint.

Yeah, I was born a sinner,
But my Momma thinks I'm a saint.

The Lord Loves The Drinkin' Man Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

The Lord loves the drinkin' man.
He sends honky-tonk angels to the Promised Land,
I hear that he can turn water to wine.
Any man that can do that, oh he's good friend of mine.
I've been baptized in beer, I'm here to testify,
I was speakin' in tongues when I came home last night.
Some folks say I'm livin' in sin,
But I know the Lord loves the drinkin' man.

Well, the preacher man, he told me: "Boy you ain't no good.
"Devil's gonna getcha, best start actin' like you should.
"All the cold beer and bright lights, stayin' out all night:
"Good Book, it tells me, boy, your soul's gonna burn."
Momma said: "Son, you're headin' down the wrong road.
"They don't let honky-tonkers up in Heaven, I've been told."
Don't you worry, Momma, I'll see you up in Heaven.
I've been thinking 'bout it and I've come to this conclusion, now:

The Lord loves the drinkin' man.
He sends honky-tonk angels to the Promised Land,
I hear that he can turn water to wine.
Any man that can do that, oh he's good friend of mine.
I've been baptized in beer, I'm here to testify,
I was speakin' in tongues when I came home last night.
Some folks say I'm livin' in sin,
But I know the Lord loves the drinkin' man.

Well, my Daddy said: "Son you're living your life all wrong.
"Lightins gonna strike you down before too long.
"That man upstairs, he don't like what you do.
"When you reach those Pearly Gates, you ain't getting through."
Well, I've been thinkin', got a brand new plan:
I'm gonna start a little Church down at the Stumble Inn.
Yeah, that's right, I'm gonna start my own religion,
We'll be drinkin' and dancin' at the church of Hank Williams, yeah.

The Lord loves the drinkin' man.
He sends honky-tonk angels to the Promised Land,
I hear that he can turn water to wine.
Any man that can do that, oh, he's good friend of mine.
I've been baptized in beer, I'm here to testify,
I was speaking in tongues when I came home last night.
Some folks say I'm livin' in sin,
But I know the Lord loves the drinkin' man.
Yeah, he does.

The Lord loves the drinkin' man.
He sends honky-tonk angels to the Promised Land,
I hear that he can turn water to wine.
Well, any man that can do that, oh, he's good friend of mine.
I've been baptized in beer, I'm here to testify,
I was speaking in tongues when I came home last night.
Some folks say I'm livin' in sin,
But I know the Lord loves;
I hope he does:
The Lord loves the drinkin' man.

Would These Arms Be In Your Way Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

Would you like to hear I love you, all the time
And if you couldn't turn around without touching, would you mind
You know there's something missing 'round your waist
Tell me, would these arms be in your way?

Would you mind another heart beating for you
Two ears that listen, you can talk to
Kisses filled with feeling on your face
Now tell me, would these arms be in your way?

Would you mind another heart beating for you
Two ears that listen, you can talk to
Kisses filled with feeling on your face
Oh, tell me, would these arms be in your way?

Now tell me, would these arms be in your way?.

You Can't Do Me This Way Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

Well, you don't care how I hurt
You don't care how I've cried
You gotta learn you can't do me
This way and get by with it.

Well, I don't know, I don't know why
But everything you tell me is a lie
You gotta learn you can't do me
This way and get by with it.

Well, it seems at first my thirst for love
Was satisfied by your sweet charms
But now and then you'd lend yourself to someone else's arms
If you can't, treat me right, well, at least won't you give me a try
You gotta learn you can't do me
This way and get by with it.

You know at first my thirst for love
Was satisfied by your sweet charms
But now and then you'd lend yourself to someone else's arms
If you can't, treat me right, well, at least won't you give me a try
You gotta learn you can't do me
This way and get by.

You gotta learn you can't do me
This way and get by with it...

A Hard Secret To Keep Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

I stay up late and read a lot at night
Lately she's begun to wonder why
She don't know I'm scared that I'll start talking in my sleep
You're a hard secret to keep

And every time she asks me where I've been
A cheater's paranoia begins
Scrambling for an answer
Anything she might believe
You're a hard secret to keep

One slip of the tongue is all it would take
Just one little note, that I forgot to throw away
The slightest trace of make-up on a shirt that would come clean
You're a hard secret to keep

I never meant for you to touch my heart
Never meant to take one night this far
How much longer can I live this double life I lead
You're a hard secret to keep

I wonder if she feels you every time she touches me
You're a hard secret to keep

What Are We Doing In Love Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

You say country like it's a bad thing,
Tease me baby for the way I am
Uptown, uptight, you're way a living
I can never be that kind of man.

You got your powdered up painted on lipstick
I got a hole in my brand new jeans
You'd never be caught dead in a pickup
I'd get mud in your limousine.

So what are we doing love
You tell me, cause I give up
The odds are stacked a hundred to one
So what are we doing in love.

Sweet tea, cornbread, fried green tomatoes,
football, NASCar, Redman chew
You're sweet champagne and caviar kisses.
I'm cheeseburgers and 90 proof.

I'm a dirt poor redneck cowboy
You're a woman of the world
I don't know what you see in my brown eyes
You can do so much better than me.

So what are we doing love
You tell me, cause I give up
The odds are stacked a hundred to one
So what are we doing in love.

Why do you love me?
I give up baby.

So what are we doing love
You tell me, cause I give up
The odds are stacked a hundred to one
So what are we doing in love.

Don't Ruin It For The Rest Of Us Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

Don't ruin it for the rest of us
With your braggin' that you fell in love
Can't you see we're kinda busy here
Swappin lies and cryin' in our beer.

So you're getting married, good for you
It's 1st inning, Braves are down by two
Grab a seat and keep your big mouth shut
And don't ruin it for the rest of us.

I hardly recognized you
With that smile on your face
Your shirt's tucked in
You shaved your chin
And every hair's in place
You smell a whole lot better
Than any body in this bar
Here's a dollar
Buy yourself a cheap cigar.

Don't ruin it for the rest of us
With your braggin' that you fell in love
Can't you see we're kinda busy here
Swappin lies and cryin' in our beer.

So you're getting married, good for you
It's 3rd inning, Braves are down by two
Grab a seat and keep your big mouth shut
And don't ruin it for the rest of us.

You missed the bowling season
Butch blew a perfect game
And when we got the new shirts printed up
There was an "I" in Shooter's name.

Well Ronnie's back to walkin'
He got another D.U.I.
So if you plan on gettin' out of here alive

Don't ruin it for the rest of us
With your braggin' that you fell in love
Can't you see we're kinda busy here
Swappin lies and cryin' in our beer.

So you're getting married, good for you
It's 6th inning, Braves are down by two
Grab a seat and keep your big mouth shut
And don't ruin it for the rest of us.

Don't ruin it for the rest of us
With your braggin' that you fell in love
Can't you see we're kinda busy here
Swappin lies and cryin' in our beer.

So you're getting married, good for you
It's 9th inning, we're about to lose
I told ya twice to keep your pie-hole shut
And don't ruin it for the rest of us.

Can't you see
We've been through enough
Don't ruin it for the rest of us...

Mama's House Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

There's a bottle of whiskey up above the stove, it's been there 30 years I know
Only used for coughs and colds at mama's house
In the air there's a combination of home baked bread and fried bacon
No, there's no mistaking mama's house.

It seems smaller than the day I left.
It don't matter how big I get.
I still wipe my feet and watch my mouth.
At mama's house.

Thing's round here still looks the same, like a picture in a frame
The light bill's still in daddy's name at mama's house
You won't find one speck of dust, one dirty spoon, or coffee cup
And that ol' dog will still eat you up at mama's house.

It seems smaller than the day I left.
It don't matter how big I get.
I still wipe my feet and watch my mouth.
At mama's house.

That driveway's still paved with white rocks
Though her name ain't on the mailbox
Come what may there won't be any doubt
That's mama's house.

It seems smaller than the day I left.
It don't matter how big I get.
I still wipe my feet and watch my mouth.
At mama's house.

Since You Ain't Home Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

Since you left I can't stay sober
And I've let the grass grow over
Those pretty flowers that you planted when we moved in
And the paint has started peeling
Down the hall, along the ceiling
Above the busted frame your picture's hangin in.

And the carpet's wearin through, where I dragged around these blues
And the curtain's torn in two, from me lookin out for you
Once we held it all together, but I can't do it on my own
This old house has gone to pieces since you ain't home.

Our TV won't get no picture
There's no lightbulb in the fixture
In our bedroom where you used to love on me
All the memories that we once shared
They're all locked forever in there
'Cause I locked the door and I can't find the key.

And the carpet's wearin through, where I dragged around these blues
And the curtain's torn in two, from me lookin out for you
Once we held it all together, but I can't do it on my own
This old house has gone to pieces since you ain't home.

This old house has gone to pieces since you ain't home...

Think Like A Woman Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

I'm standin' with somethin' in my hand that don't look too flower like.
She slammed the pretty part in the door jam left me and the stems outside.
On my way back from fishin' I thought if brought a dozen roses home.
She'd smile when I told her there was one for each day that I'd been gone.
I tried to think like a woman.
Find out where that pretty head was at.
I tried to think like a woman.
But I don't guess a woman thinks like that.
I'm underneath the window with my guitar in the back yard soakin' wet.
She poured what I'm afraid might of been toilet water on my head.
And I thought when she heard this song I wrote her on my way back into town.
It would cool her off but it appears it worked the other way around.
I tried to think like a woman.
Find out where her pretty head was at.
I tried to think like a woman.
But I don't guess a woman thinks like that.
I'm just gettin' comfortable in the dog house
When she pulls the curtains and I see her peakin' out.
Well I lay here lookin' sad a while.
Sufer some and then she smiles.
It's all slowly dawnin' on me now.
Tried to think like a woman.
Where she wanted me was right where I was at.
I tried to think like a woman.
If I was sweet thought she'd cut me some slack.
Oh, but I don't think a woman thinks like that.
I know she don't.

Then We Can All Go Home Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

I know it's late, and it's a lot to ask of you
I know that you been working, Hey, I'm tired too
You probably thought that last call would be the last
And that we could dim these neon lights, but not so fast.

Whiskey, there's still lips you need to kiss tonight
Bottle, there's a hand you need to hold
Hey, jukebox and cigarettes your work here isn't over yet
Just one more then we can all go home.

There used to be a place where I spent all my nights
With kisses sweet, and loving arms to hold me tight
I hate that I have to lay this all on you
But if I can't turn to old friends, who can I turn to.

Whiskey, there's still lips you need to kiss tonight
Bottle, there's a hand you need to hold
Hey, jukebox and cigarettes, your work here isn't over yet
Just one more then we can all go home.

Whiskey, there's still lips you need to kiss tonight
Bottle, there's a hand you need to hold
Hey, jukebox and cigarettes, your work here isn't over yet
Just one more then we can all go home.

Hey, jukebox and cigarettes, whiskey, bottle no your not through yet
Just one more
Yeah, just one more
Oh, just one more and then we can all go home.

Beer Bait And Ammo Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

Well now, early one day,
I was on my way
To my favorite fishin' hole.
I was think I could sure use
Another bottle of booze
And my baits a runnin a little low,
Yeah and a box of twelve gauge
Would be all the rage
When I'm all liquered up and I'm feelin good
Well, just up the road
There's a place called bubba's,
Man he's got the goods

And the sign says, beer bait and ammo,
Yeah they got everything in between
They got anything any old beer-drinkin,
Hell-raisin, bonified redneck needs
They got your fishin hooks,
They got your dirty books,
They got your rebel flag on the wall,
The sign says beer, bait, and ammo, yeah you ask me they've got it all.

Well when I walked in
I couldn't even begin
To describe just a what I smelled.
Lord was it the catfish bait,
Or something bubba had ate,
Or was it them pickled eggs on the shelf
With a toothless grin,
He said so step on in
And make yourself right at home
And I said no thank you man
Just a twelve pack of cans
And I'll be good to go

And the sign says, beer bait and ammo,
Yeah they got everything in between
They got anything any old beer-drinkin,
Hell-raisin, bonified redneck needs
They got your fishin hooks,
They got your dirty books,
They got your rebel flag on the wall,
The sign says beer, bait, and ammo, yeah you ask me they've got it all.

Yes they do!

And the sign says, beer bait and ammo,
Yeah they got everything in between
They got anything any old beer-drinkin,
Hell-raisin, bonified redneck needs
They got your fishin hooks,
They got your dirty books,
They got your rebel flag on the wall,
The sign says beer, bait, and ammo, yeah you ask me they've got it all.

Walk it!

My Best Drinkin' Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

We had a little fight tonight buddy it got vicious
And all the way out the door I was duckin' dishes
I thought I'd let her simmer down just a few degrees
So I came in here to have a beer or two or three.

That's when I do my best drinkin'
When I'm thinkin' about her
All the fussin' and fightin'
Leaves me dyin' of thirst
Go ahead and take the keys to my car
Make a little room at the bar
'Cause buddy when the fightin' starts
My best drinkin'.

Now give me something cold and wet in a long neck bottle
'Cause she said some things to me tonight that were hard to swallow
It's gonna take me all night long to wash 'em down
'Cause when she makes me lose my cool one thing I've found..

That's when I do my best drinkin'
When I'm thinkin' about her
All the fussin' and fightin'
Leaves me dyin' of thirst
Go ahead and take the keys to my car
Make a little room at the bar
'Cause buddy when the fightin' starts
My best drinkin'.

I ain't seein' double yet, set em up Joe's
I'm ain't as think as you drunk I am
Hell you outta know.

That's when I do my best drinkin'
When I'm thinkin' about her
All the fussin' and fightin'
Leaves me dyin' of thirst
Go ahead and take the keys to my car
Make a little room at the bar
'Cause buddy when the fightin' starts
My best drinkin'.

Well, I'll tell you when I've had enough
I'm just gettin' loosened up
'Cause buddy when love gets tough
That's when I do my best drinkin'...

Honky Tonk Heroes Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Savin' The Honky Tonk

Low down leaving sun, I've done did everything that needs done
Woe is me, why can't I see, I best be leaving well enough alone
Them neon light nights, couldn't stay out of fights
They keep a hauntin' me and memories
There is one in every crowd, for cryin' out loud
Why was it always turnin' out to be me.

Where does it go, the good Lord only knows
It seems like it was just the other day
I was down at Green Gables, hawkin' them tables
And generally blowin' all my hard earned pay.

Piano rolled blues, danced holes in my shoes
There weren't another other way to be
For loveable losers, and no account boozers
And honky tonk heroes like me...

Heard It In A Love Song Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Heard It In A Love Song
(originally by The Marshall Tucker Band)

I ain't never been with a woman
Long enough for my boots to get old
We've been together so long now they both need resoled
If I ever settle down you'd be my kind
And it's a good time for me to head on down the line

Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Heard it in a love song
Can't be wrong

I'm the kinda man likes to get away
Like to start dreamin about tomorrow today
Never said that I love you, even thought it's so
Where's that duffle bag of mine it's time to go

I'm gonna be leaving at the break of dawn
Wish you could come but I don't need no woman tagging along
So I'll sneak out that door couldn't stand to see you cry
I'd stay another year if I saw a tear drop in your eye

I never had a damn thing but what I had I had to leave it behind
You're the hardest thing I ever tried to get off my mind
Always something greener on the other side of that hill
I was born a wrangler and a rambler and I guess I always will

A Day In The Life Of A Fool Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Heard It In A Love Song

Off to work with no kiss of goodbye
Wear a smile on my face but I lie
Cup of coffee at the corner cafe
Catch the bus read the news on my way

Go through motions the whole morning through
Start a day in the life of a fool
Sometimes I dial our number and hope she'll return
But there's never an answer
Guess I'll never learn

Hurry home after my work is through
Check the mailbox no letter from you
Then I rush up the stairs to my memories of you
That's a day in the life of a fool

Yes. I rush up the stairs to my memory of you
That's a day in a life of a fool

That Good That Bad Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Heard It In A Love Song

So you just called to say you thought of me all day
But you're sorry you ever broke my heart
You just wanted to know if I wanted to go
And try and make a new start
I appreciate your concern
But listen up and learn a thing or two
There's certain things in this life even a fool won't do

I wouldn't trade a night of pleasure for a lifetime full of pain
Why should I help you drive me insane
Even though I know you are the best I've ever had
I don't need to feel that good that bad

Now you're saying you've changed
And things are not the same
As they were when you walked out the door
And you swear that you'll stay forever and a day
Well I've heard those same lies before
Well, I wish that I could talk to you but to tell the truth
I've really got to go
Well, let me say it one more time just so you will know

Hey even if I could, even if I should
I don't need to feel that good that bad

Dreaming My Dreams With You Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Heard It In A Love Song
(originally by Waylon Jennings)

I hope that I won't be this wrong anymore
Maybe I've learned this time
I hope that I find what I'm reaching for
The way that it is in my mind

Someday I'll get over you
I'll live to see it all through
But I'll always miss dreaming my dreams with you
But I won't let it change me not if I can

I'd rather believe in love
And give it away as much as I can
To those whom I'm fondest of
Someday I'll get over you
I'll live to see it all through
But I'll always miss dreaming my dreams with you

Someday I'll get over you
I'll live to see it all through
But I'll always miss dreaming my dreams with you
But I'll always miss dreaming my dreams with you

A Hard Secret To Keep Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Heard It In A Love Song

I stay up late and read a lot at night
Lately she's begun to wonder why
She don't know I'm scared that I'll start talking in my sleep
You're a hard secret to keep

And every time she asks me where I've been
A cheater's paranoia begins
Scrambling for an answer
Anything she might believe
You're a hard secret to keep

One slip of the tongue is all it would take
Just one little note, that I forgot to throw away
The slightest trace of make-up on a shirt that would come clean
You're a hard secret to keep

I never meant for you to touch my heart
Never meant to take one night this far
How much longer can I live this double life I lead
You're a hard secret to keep

I wonder if she feels you every time she touches me
You're a hard secret to keep

You Can't Find Many Kissers Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Heard It In A Love Song

When I make love I wanna a girl that'll kiss me
Then when I'm gone I'd like to hear that she'll miss me
But all that I'd heard is belt buckles hitting the floor
And you can't find many kissers anymore

Most of these girls they just don't know what their missing
If they'd spend a little more time with hugging and kissing
I'll give em all of my love if they'll just take it slow
But you can't find many kissers anymore

No you can't find many kissers anymore
One you love as much in the morning as you did just the night before
Oh, a girl that you won't have to tell her hey I gotta go
But you can't find many kissers anymore

All of you ladies take some good advice from me
If you want faithful effects of my virility
Baby you gotta kiss me and hug me and do it real slow
Laud, you can't find many kissers anymore

No a girl that you won't have to tell her hey I gotta go
You can't find many kissers anymore
Laud, it's hard to find huggers and smooches and kissers anymore

Apartment #9 Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Heard It In A Love Song
(originally by Tammy Wynette)

Just follow the stairway
To this lonely world of mine
You'll find me waitin' here
In Apartment # 9

Not so very long ago
You walked away from me
And after the all the plans we made
You decided to be free

Loneliness surrounds me
Without your arms around me
And the sun will never shine
In Apartment # 9

I keep waiting in this lonely room
Just in case you change your mind
You'll find me waiting here
In Apartment # 9

Loneliness surrounds me
Without your arms around me
And the sun will never shine
In Apartment # 9

No the sun will never shine in Apartment # 9

A Shoulder To Cry On Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Heard It In A Love Song

Life is full of lots of up and downs
And the distance feels further
When you're headed for the ground
And there is nothing more painful
Than to let you're feelings take you down
It's so hard to know the way you feel inside
When there's many thoughts and feelings that you hide
But you might feel better
If you let me walk with you by your side

And when you need a shoulder to cry on
When you need a friend to rely on
When the whole world is gone
You won't be alone, cause I'll be there
I'll be your shoulder to cry on, I'll be there
I'll be a friend to rely on
When the whole world is gone
You won't be alone, cause I'll be there

All of the times when everything is wrong
And you're feeling like
There's no use going on
You can't give it up
I hope you work it out and carry on
Side by side, with you til the end
I'll always be the one to firmly hold your hand
No matter what is said or done
Our love will always continue on

Everyone needs a shoulder to cry on
Everyone needs a friend to rely on
When the whole world is gone
You won't be alone cause I'll be there
I'll be your shoulder to cry on, I'll be there
I'll be the one you rely on when the whole world's gone
You won't be alone
Cause I'll be there

And when the whole world is gone
You'll always have my shoulder to cry on

Goodbye Comes Hard For Me Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Heard It In A Love Song

I just remembered somethin'
That I forgot to do
The bedroom door needs paintin'
And the walls are fadin' too
Angie's bike needs fixin'
It all takes time, you see
And I know I'm not foolin' you
Goodbye comes hard for me.

So I'll just check for things once more
And look in every room
I must have dropped my comb somewhere
And a man must stay well groomed
It seems I have the right to stay
But I know you don't agree
When it's goodbye to all I love
Goodbye comes hard for me

Goodbye comes hard for me
And I'd hoped you'd grab my sleeve
I thought that you might change your mind
And ask me not to leave
My face is wet, I cried I guess
I love you , now your free
When it's goodbye to all I love
Goodbye comes hard for me

My face is wet, I cried I guess
I love you , now your free
When it's goodbye to all I love
Goodbye comes hard for me...

Lost Highway Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Heard It In A Love Song

I'm a rolling stone, all alone and lost
For a life of sin, I have paid the cost
When I pass by, all the people say
Just another guy on the lost highway

Just a deck of cards and a jug of wine
And a woman's lies make a life like mine
Oh, the day we met, I went astray
I started rolling down that lost highway

I was just a lad, nearly twenty-two
Neither good nor bad, just a kid like you
And now I'm lost, too late to pray
Lord, I've paid the cost on the lost highway

Now, boys, don't start your rambling round
On this road of sin or you're sorrow bound
Take my advice or you'll curse the day
You started rolling down that lost highway

Things To Do In Wichita Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Rollin' With The Flow

Wake up make my way down to the lobby
Get a bite to eat and a cup or two of coffee
Read USA Today front to back
Kill most of the mornin’ doin’ that
Then take that lonely walk back to the room
Watch reruns off and on all afternoon

[Chorus]
Things to do in Wichita
So many things I can’t count ‘em all
Find a way to bring her back
Find the words to let her know
That I’ve changed I really have
Hit redial on the phone
Leave another message at her mom’s
Tell her baby you were right and I was wrong
hope and pray and wait for her to call
I’ve got things to do in Wichita

Now sundown now that’s when things get tough
Gotta work to keep my strength and courage up
Says a happy hour in the bar downstairs
She’d be proud to know I ain’t set foot in there
Spend the nights trying to be a better man
Reading from that book in my nightstand

[Chorus]

Tell myself to just stay strong
Kill the lights and lay here all alone
Say a prayer that tomorrow she might call
I’ve got thing to do in Wichita

When You Love Her Like Crazy Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Rollin' With The Flow

She'll call
I'll drop
Everything and run
She'll ask
She'll get
Anything she wants

Take all my money
And take all my time
There's nothing of mine
That I won't sacrifice

When you love her like crazy
That's what you are
You don't think
You just follow your heart

Am I a fool, outta my mind
Yeah, well maybe
But that's how it is
When you love her like crazy

She'll smile at me
And I'll come unglued
She'll cry those tears
And I'll hurt too

Forget all the logic
And all reasons why
There's a word that describes
What I'm acting like

When you love her like crazy
That's what you are
You don' t think
You just follow your heart

Am I a fool, outta my mind
Yeah, well maybe
But that's how it is
When you love her like crazy

Rollin' With The Flow Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Rollin' With The Flow

Once was a thought inside my head
'Fore I reached thirty I'd be dead
Somehow on and on I go
I keep on rollin' with the flow

Folks said that I would change my mind
I'd settle down and do just fine
But I still love rock 'n roll
I keep on rollin' with the flow

I got my angel raising kids
I'm raising hell just like I did
I got a lot of crazy friends
And they forgive me of my sins

Some might be calling me a bum
'Cause I'm still out here having fun
Jesus loves me yes I know
I keep on rollin' with the flow

I got my angel raising kids
I'm raising hell just like I did
I got a lot of crazy friends
And they forgive me of my sins

Can't take it with you when you're gone
But I want enough to get there on
And I ain't never growing old
I keep on rollin' with the flow

Keep on rollin' with the flow

When I Get This Close To You Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Rollin' With The Flow

Where’s the magic gone, the power to get along
It’s like we’ve forgotten how, we used to work it out, without trying to
When I finally had enough you can sense me giving up
And there ain’t nothing you won’t do
When I get this close to leaving I change my mind when I get this close to you

I’m nearly out the door gone for sure nothing here worth staying for
You turn it on and I can’t turn loose
When I get this close to leaving I change my mind when I get this close to you

Where’s the you and me that seldom, ever disagrees
Remember the hours, when every-day was, a honeymoon
When I’m at the point of packing it’s like you can feel it happening
You throw your arms around me and I can’t move
When I get this close to leaving I change my mind when I get this close to you

I’m nearly out the door gone for sure nothing here worth staying for
You turn it on and I can’t turn loose
When I get this close to leaving I change my mind when I get this close to you
When I get this close to leaving I change my mind when I get this close to you

(Come On In) The Whiskey's Fine Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Rollin' With The Flow

Me and my cousin Lendyl
Got lost hunting Coon
In the Carolina Mountains
Somewhere outside of Boone
We were just about to panic
When 'ol Lendyl saw the sign
It said, "Come on in! The whiskey's fine."

That old shack looked abandoned
Roof all fallin' in
Just some pertrified planks
and some rusty ol' tin
We both likely crapped our britches
when a voice from inside
yelled, "Come on in! The whiskey's fine."

Then those swinngin' doors opened
He staggered out on the porch
dressed just like Davey Crocket
Beard clear down to the floor
He said, "The band's drunk, beer's skunked,
and we ain't got no wine,
But come on in! The whiskey's fine."

We peeked in over his shoulder
And the first thing that we saw
Was a boy pickin' a banjo
In a pair of overalls
He said, "That boy is half crazy,
Plays the same song all the time,
But Hey come on in! The whiskey's fine."

"The food will make you sick,
The air will make you choke,
The waitress ain't a-workin',
And the Jukebox is broke."

He said, "the band's drunk, beer's skunked,
And we ain't got no wine,
But come on in! The whiskey's fine."

He said, "The pinballs won't roll,
The pool-table rocks,
And it hotter than two rats in heat,
Inside an old wool sock."

"I wouldn't drink the water,
It tastes like turpentine,
we're WAY overpriced,
and a little hard to find."

"The band's drunk, the beer's skunked,
And we ain't got no wine,
But come on in! The whiskey's fine."

"Ya'll come on it! The whiskley's fine!"

"Ya'll come on in!

aawwww, The whiskley's fine!"

"hehehehe"

Woman Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Rollin' With The Flow

Woman, woman I know you better
Probably even better
Than you even know yourself by now

Now woman, where do you think you're going?
You know you're not going
To get any further than your mama's house
Before you turn around and come running back

I know this and you know that
You're just mad and there's a chance
A really good chance that I'm wrong again
I usually am

But girl you know as sure as rain
I'm always right about one thing
I know a little fight can change
I'm your man, you're my woman

Woman you know I'm sorry
For me being such a sorry
Lousy, inconsiderate so and so

So woman now that we've got that over
How 'bout we skip over the part where you leave me
Standing in your dust and start making up
Glad to have you back

I know this and you know that
You're just mad and there's a chance
A really good chance that I'm wrong again
I usually am

But girl you know as sure as rain
I'm always right about one thing
I know a little fight can change
I'm your man, you're my woman

I know this and you know that
You're just mad and there's a chance
A really good chance that I'm wrong again
I usually am

But girl you know as sure as rain
I'm always right about one thing
I might be a pain but still the fact remains
I'm your man, you're my woman

Man In The Mirror Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Rollin' With The Flow

I used to sit on the stool

Watch him shave
If my memory is right
I was 7 or 8
In the eyes of a child he was no less than great
But time would prove any'thing could change

Cus'he was 2 old fashioned
When I was 16
Not near as smart
As my buddies an me
But the only friend I've grow up to need
Got called home jus shy of 63

Now the man in the mirror
Looks so familiar
He's wearin that same crocked smile
Same lines of worry
Kids growin up to early
& grey hairs from extra mouths
I thought I'd never see him agin
But little did I know I'd turn in
To the man in the mirror

Now I realise
Just how wise he was
Sometimes without talkin
He still taught us
His strong hands of justice
Would end with ay hug
He knew nothing was stronger
Than the power of love

I can truthfully say
That I know how he felt
Cus jus the other night
When my son needed help
When I fixed his little plane
With the one piece left
He looked at me in a way I never saw myself

Now the man in the mirror
Looks so familiar
He's wearin that same crocked smile
Same lines of worry kids growin up to early
& grey hairs from extra mouths
I thought I'd never see him agin
But little did I know I'd turn in

I thought I'd never see him agin
But little did I know I'd turn in
To the man in the mirror

Long Way To Go Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Rollin' With The Flow

Well, I met old Wailin back in '79
When I was in my teens
When I told him what was on my mind
He said son you don't wanna feel like me

There's a lot 'bout my life that you don't know
And boy it sure ain't good
The big wheels will drive you crazy
And the highway will make you do things you never would

When you're living in the spotlight
It's another world every night
It's a different town everyday
You pay your dues if you're gonna play

The only thing that makes it worthwhile
Is a big crowd going wild
But you gotta long way to go
You gotta long, long way to go

But I've had this in my blood since the day
I held a guitar in my hand
And it wasn't long till Baumann was the home
Of another cowboy band

And too cold at home put me on the road
And I know exactly how he felt
Back then how was I to know
That the hands of fate for me were already dealt

Now I'm living in the spotlight
It's another town every night
It's a different world everyday
You pay your dues if you're gonna play

The only thing that makes it worthwhile
Is a big crowd going wild
But I've gotta long way to go
I gotta long, long way to go
A long, long way to go

She Never Got Me Over You Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Rollin' With The Flow

She got me, to stop drinking
And for that, I'm thankful
She almost pulled off, pulling me through
And she got me standing upright
Even had me coming home nights
But she never got me over you

She almost had me had me where you have me
She almost did what you still do
She got me thinking straight again
But I don't think she understands
She never got me over you

She almost had me had me where you have me
She almost did what you still do
She got me thinking straight again
But I don't think she understands
She never got me over you

She never got me over you

Black Rose Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Outlaw

Way down in Virginia
Amongst the tall grown sugarcane
Lived a simple man and a Dominecker hen
And a rose of a different name

Well, the first time I felt lightening
I was standing in drizzling rain
With a trembling hand and a bottle of Gin
And a rose of a different name

Well, the devil made me do it the first time
The second time I done it on my own
Lord put a handle on a simple headed man
Help me leave that black rose alone

When the devil made that woman
Lord, he threw the pattern away
Yeah, she were built for speed with the tools you need
To make a new fool everyday

Way down deep and dirty
On the darkest side of shame
I caught a cane cuttin' man doin' it again
With a rose of a different name

Well, the devil made me do it the first time
The second time I done it on my own
Lord, put a handle on a simple headed man
Help me leave that black rose alone

Well, the devil made me do it the first time
The second time I done it on my own
Lord, put a handle on a simple headed man
Help me leave that black rose alone

Whiskey Bent And Hell Bound Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Outlaw

I got a good woman at home
Who thinks I do no wrong
But sometimes, Lord, she just ain't always around

And you know that's when I fall
Lord, I can't help myself at all
And I get whiskey bent and hell bound

Play me the songs about a ramblin' man
Put a cold one in my hand
'Cause you know I love to hear those guitar sounds

Don't play 'Your cheating heart'
'Cause that'll tear me apart
I'll get whiskey bent and hell bound

Sure enough about closin' time
I'm stoned out of my mind
And I end up with some honkytonk special I found

Just as sure as the mornin' sun comes
Thinkin' of my sweet girl at home
Lord, I need to get whiskey bent and hell bound

Play me the songs about a ramblin' man
Put old Jim Beam in my hand
'Cause you know I still love to get drunk
And hear country sounds

Don't play 'I'm so lonesome I could cry'
I get all balled up inside
Yeah, I'll get whiskey bent and hell bound

Yeah, don't you know that old Hank's songs
Always make me feel low down

Only Daddy That'll Walk The Line Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Outlaw

Everybody knows you've been steppin' on my toes
And I'm gettin' pretty tired of it
You keep a-steppin' out of line and you're messin' with my mind
If you had any sense, you'd quit

Ever since you were a little bitty teeny girl
You said I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinkin' then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line

I keep workin' every day, all you want to is play
I'm tired of stayin' out all night
Hey, I'm comin' unglued from your funny little moods
Now honey, baby, that ain't right

'Cause ever since you were a little bitty teeny girl
You said I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinkin' then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line

You keep packin' up my clothes, lordy, everybody knows
That you're still just a-puttin' me on
But when I start walkin', gonna hear you start squawkin'
And beggin' me to come back home

Oh, ever since you were a little bitty teeny girl
You said I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinkin' then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line

Now you better do some thinkin' then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line

A Couple More Years Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Outlaw
(duet with Amber Digby)

I've got a couple more years on you, baby, that's all
I've had more chances to fly and more places to fall
It's not that I'm wiser, it's just that
I've spent more time with my back to the wall
And I've picked up a couple more years on you, baby, that's all

I've walked a couple more roads than you, baby, that's all
And I'm tired of runnin' while you're only learnin' to crawl
And you're goin' somewhere but I've been somewhere
Found it was nowhere at all
I've picked up a couple more years on you, baby, that's all

Sayin' goodbye, girl, don't never come easy at all
You've got to fly 'cause you're hearin' them young eagles call
Someday when you're older, you'll smile at a man strong and tall
Say I've got a couple more years on you, baby, that's all

I've got a couple more years on you, baby, that's all
I've had more chances to fly and more places to fall
It's not that I'm wiser, it's just that
I've spent more time with my back to the wall
And I've picked up a couple more years on you, baby, that's all

I need a little time off for bad behavior
Devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I been too good for too long

I'm up and gone at the break of dawn
I'v been workin' like a regular dog
To keep the woman and the lights
And the water and the phone turned on

I've been sayin' 'Yes sir' all day at work
I've been sayin' 'Yes maam' at home
Been storin' up the cuss words
Keepin' 'em under my tongue

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I been too good for too long

I have this number on my mind a while
I been fightin' off the urge to call
Pretty little strawberry blonde
With a Southern drawl

Some good old boys from Alabama
Said the fishin' been missin' me
And I need to renew
My friendship with Jim Beam

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I been too good for too long

Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Outlaw

Well, I woke up Sunday morning
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt
And the beer I had for breakfast wouldn't bad
So I had one more for dessert

Then I fumbled through my closet for my clothes
And found my cleanest dirty shirt
And I shaved my face and combed my hair
Stumbled down the stairs to meet the day

Well, I'd smoked my brain the night before
On cigarettes and songs I'd been picking
But I lit my first and watched a small boy
Cussin' at a can that he was kicking

And I crossed the empty street
Caught the Sunday smell of someone frying chicken
And Lord, it took me back to something that I'd lost
Somewhere, somehow along the way

On a Sunday morning sidewalk
I'm wishing Lord, that I was stoned
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone

And there's nothing short of dying
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of a sleeping city sidewalk
A Sunday mornin' comin' down

In the park I saw a daddy
With a laughing little girl, he was swinging
And I stopped beside a Sunday school
And listened to the songs that they were singing

Then I headed back for home
And somewhere far away a bell was ringing
And it echoed through the canyons
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday

On a Sunday morning sidewalk
Lord, I'm wishing I was stoned
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone

And there's nothing short of dying
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday mornin' comin' down

Are You Ready For The Country Lyrics

Artist : MARK CHESNUTT
Album : Outlaw

Slipping and sliding, playing domino
Lefting and then righting, ain't a crime, you know
Well, I gotta tell a story, boy
'Fore it's time to go

Are you ready for the country?
Are you ready for me
Are you ready for the country?
Man, what a sight to see

Talkin' to the preacher, said God was on his side
Talkin' to a pusher, they both were certainly high
Yeah, they gotta tell the story 'cause
They don't know the reason why

But are you ready for the country
Because it's time to go?
Are you ready for the country
Man, what a sight to see

I have seen the morning burning golden
On the mountain in the skies
Aching with the feeling of the freedom
Of an eagle when she flies

Turning on the world the way she smiled
Upon my soul as I lay dying
Healing as the colors in the sunshine
And the shadows of her eyes

Waking in the morning to the feeling
Of her fingers on my skin
Wiping out the traces of the people
And the places that I've been

Teaching me that yesterday
Was something that I'd never thought of trying
Talking of tomorrow and the money, love
And time we had to spend

Loving her was easier than anything
I'll ever do again
Coming close together with a feeling
That I've never known before in my time

She ain't ashamed to be a woman
Or afraid to be a friend
I don't know the answer to the easy way
She opened every door in my mind

But dreaming was as easy as believing
It was never gonna end
And loving her was easier than anything
I'll ever do again
