Cool Water Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Hawk
(with Willy Mason)

Cool water won't bring it down
Oh it's hard, my backyard is full of hand me downs
Make your pick, take it quick while the going's good
And you are, thank the stars like I knew you could

Cool water, you're out of grace
Take a cloth, wipe it off, yeah, death's on your face
Take this thing that we sing, make it something good
Taking care if you dare and I knew you would
And I knew you would

Cool water won't bring it down
Love is when you're right here, you're my favorite clown
I'll depend, my right hand and we're chained and bound
Feels so good like it should, let me bring you 'round
Let me bring you 'round

Let me bring you 'round, let me bring you 'round
Let me bring you 'round

Lately Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Hawk

Lately more or less I'm feelin' less incomplete
I got no direction so I follow my feet
When I think on everything my heart skips a beat

Lately, lately

It'll come clean in the wash know that much is true
You cannot foresee that this will happen to you
Best to sit and wait until the sun's breaking through

Lately, lately

Lately you've been talking and you don't make no sense
And from what you say she's got your back to the fence
And from what I see it's hard for you to find strength

Lately, lately

What you need, what's the hurry
And ain't it cruel when people are unkind
What's the fear, what's the worry
Move forward now and leave the past behind

You could waste your whole life through be a sleepy John
Choose your favorite poison on the way to get gone
Is this what you're thinkin' then I've got to move on

Lately, lately

Lately, lately

What you need, what's the hurry
And ain't it cruel when people are unkind
What you need, what's the worry
Move forward now and leave the past behind

Lately I've been lookin' out for bells when they ring
Bells for you and bells for me a beautiful thing
Been a long time coming soon my ship will come in

Lately, lately
[repeat til the end]

Too Cold At Home Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Too Cold At Home

Well, it sure feels good to come in here
And just pull up a seat
A frosty mug of a cool one
Helps to beat the heat
These old dog days of summer
Lord, I'll be glad when they're gone
It's too hot to fish, too hot for golf
And too cold at home.

Well, that baseball game on TV
Takes me back to when I was a kid
We proudly wore those uniforms
Just like the Dodgers did
Yea!, we won a few and and we lost a few
And for me it still goes on
Too hot to fish, and too hot for golf
And too cold at home.

Well, I only planned on one or two
I might stay for three
If that good-lookin' thing in the corner
Keeps smilin' back at me
It's so easy not to care
'Bout what's right or what's wrong
It's too hot to fish, too hot for golf
And too cold at home.

It's too hot to fish, too hot for golf
And too cold at home.

Brother Jukebox Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Too Cold At Home

Brother jukebox, sister wine.
Mother freedom, father of time.
Since she left me by myself,
You're the only family I've got left.

I go down to that same old cafe,
Where I try to wash my troubles away.
I'm still down, and I'm still all alone,
But it beats staying home all night long.

Brother jukebox, sister wine.
Mother freedom, father of time.
Since she left me by myself,
You're the only family I've got left.

I go home and I climb that old stairway.
And I tell myself: "Tomorrow's a new day."
But I know I'll just go down again,
And spend my time with my new next-of-kin.

Brother jukebox, sister wine.
Mother freedom, father of time.
Since she left me by myself,
You're the only family I've got left.

Brother jukebox, sister wine.
Mother freedom, father of time.
Since she left me by myself,
You're the only family I've got left.

You're the only family I've got left.

Blame It On Texas Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Too Cold At Home

Been havin' a ball since I was a boy in Beaumont
Love that town but I just couldn't stay
Two stepped all the way to Amarillo
Shuffled my way into Santa Fe
Just had to see the sun set out in Frisco
The Golden Gate is great
But it ain't home
Give me a rodeo

Blame it on Texas
Don't blame it on me
I am who I am
And that's what I'm gonna be
You can say what you wanna say
About my insanity
Blame it on Texas
Don't blame it on me

Met a girl out in eastern Oklahoma
Her daddy was a Tulsa millionaire
With miles and miles of oil wells he'd leave her
All a man could want was waitn' there
But one night while she lay sleepin' I slipped away
Like no man in his
Right mind would do
Call me a fool

Blame it on Texas
Don't blame it on me
I am who I am
And that's what I'm gonna be
You can say what you wanna say
About my insanity
Blame it on Texas
Don't blame it on me

Your Love Is A Miracle Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Too Cold At Home

Out on the highway a lot of pretty girls go by
But none have been right
Up until today I would never settle down
But you keep coming around

And your love is a miracle
It's spiritual
Got here just in time-
Your love is a miracle
It's visible
Even to a heart that's blind like mine

Out in the wild life, a lot of people telling lies
Lookin' right in your eyes'
And up until tonight, I was always on the prowl
(But) now I'm settlin' down

‘Cause your love is a miracle
It's spiritual
Stands the test of time
Your love is a miracle
It's visible
Even to a heart that's blind like mine

Anyone can see what you're doing to me
And everyone can see that you're everything I need

‘Cause your love is a miracle
It's spiritual
Got here just in time
Your love is a miracle
It's visible
Even to a heart that's blind like mine

Broken Promise Land Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Too Cold At Home
(originally by Waylon Jennings)

There's a Bible on the dresser
And a sign hung on the door
And a woman in my arms who shouldn't be
I'm to the point of no returning
But I've been here before
This cheating life is nothing new to me
There's someone to be considered
So I call her on the phone
And say the job is taking longer than I planned
I don't have the heart to tell her
That a stranger's turned me on
And I'm headed for the broken promise land

Tonight I'm crossing over
And I'll reach the cheating side
And I'll hate myself for coming here again
Where the streets are paved with misery
And lives are built on lies
A place they call the broken promise land

I found a note left on the dresser
And a key left in the door
And on the floor
I found her golden wedding band
Guess she finally had to tell me
She's not waiting anymore
She's headed for the broken promise land

Tonight she's crossing over
And she'll reach the cheating side
And I'll hate myself for giving her the chance
Cause the streets are paved with misery
And lives are built on lies
A place they call the broken promise land

And it's more than I can stand

Too Good A Memory Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Too Cold At Home

Too I had it all in my hand and then lost it on a one-night stand
If there's a bigger fool than me I'd like to know who it could be
I was down in the dark when you turned the light on in my heart
And this time love won't get away from me

Cuz I've got too good a memory how bad a lonesome night can be
I've learned my lesson well, I got no desire to go back to hell
Just me and my regret, that's company you don't forget
I got too good a memory

All alone out of town and her eyes were saying fool around
If my old self were here tonight, well it'd be saying it's all right
But after all I've been though she's one thing I don't need to do
Wrong and right are clear as black and white

Cuz I've got too good a memory how bad a lonesome night can be
I've learned my lesson well, I got no desire to go back to hell
Just me and my regret, that's company you don't forget
I got too good a memory

Just me and my regret, that's company you don't forget
I got too good a memory

Yeah I've got too good a memory how bad a lonesome night can be
I've learned my lesson well, I got no desire to go back to hell
Just me and my regret, that's company you don't forget
I got too good a memory
I've got too good a memory
Yeah I've got too good a memory

Friends In Low Places Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Too Cold At Home
(originally by Garth Brooks)

Blame it all on my roots, I showed up in boots
And ruined your black tie affair
The last one to show, the last one to know.
I was the last one you thought you'd see there.

And I saw the surprise and the fear in his eyes
When I took his glass of champagne
And I toasted you said, honey, we may be through
But you'll never hear me complain.

'Cause I've got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns
And the beer chases my blues away
And I'll be okay.
I'm not big on social graces
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
'Cause, I've got friends in low places.

Well, I guess I was wrong, I just don't belong
But then, I've been here before
Everything is all right, I'll just say goodnight
And I'll show myself to the door.

Hey, I didn't mean to cause a big scene
Just give me an hour and then
I'll be as high as that ivory tower
That you're livin' in.

'Cause I've got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns
And the beer chases my blues away
And I'll be okay.
I'm not big on social graces
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
'Cause, I've got friends in low places.

Hey, I've got friends in low place...

Lucky Man Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Too Cold At Home

Lightning hit that oak tree we've been lookin' at for years
This summer oh, I know we'll miss the shade
We just made it through the coldest winter we ever knew
And our ole hound Dixie passed away
Yeah, I guess I've got things to be down about
But in spite of it all honey, aint no doubt.

I'm livin' the life of a lucky man
Counting my blessings holding your hand
I thank the Lord above, for sending me your love
And for giving me the life of a lucky man.

So many things we talk about never do come true
But Heaven knows I wish they could for you
Believe me I know you should be tempted to go
That would be the easy thing to do
So many just give up and walk away
But in spite of it all you're strong enough to stay.

I'm livin' the life of a lucky man
Counting my blessings holding your hand
I thank the Lord above for sending me your love
And for giving me the life of a lucky man

I guess I've got things to be down about
But in spite of it all honey aint no doubt.

I'm livin' the life of a lucky man
Counting my blessings holding your hand
I thank the Lord above for sending me your love
And for giving me the life of a lucky man.

I thank the Lord above for sending me your love
And for giving me the life of a lucky man...

Hey You There In The Mirror Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Too Cold At Home

Hey you there in the mirror
I didn't know you had a smile
I've watched the canyons on your face
Grow deeper with the miles
With your heart barely beating
And your spirit black and blue
I was sure that you were headed
For an early waterloo

Hey you there in the mirror
What happened to your frown
That twinkle in those smiling eyes
Is shining like a crown
You must have met somebody
With compassion in her heart
Who looked upon your Haggard face
And saw a work of art

Hey you there in the mirror
Well aint you lookin' proud
And not long ago you harbored thoughts
Of throwin' in the towel
Each day you're feelin' stronger
There's new life in your blood
Why I thought that weathered face
Would look so good in love

Hey you there in the mirror
Well aint you lookin' proud
And not long ago you harbored thoughts
Of throwin' in the towel
Each day you're feelin' stronger
There's new life in your blood
Why I thought that weathered face
Would look so good in love

Danger At My Door Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Too Cold At Home

There's danger at my door and I don't need no more
Of her danger at my door - all I've been livin' for
Was for her to love me more than she ever loved anybody before
But she broke my heart oh so many times and I'm trying to fight
My will and send her home tonight
There's danger at my door and I don't need no more
Of her danger at my door

Too many times I've chased a false alarm
Too many lonely nights let down my guard
Too many memories make this moment extra special hard
'cause all that I can remember is laying there in her arms
There's danger at my door and I don't need no more
Of her danger at my door

I finally fall asleep alone again
But I know my day has not come to an end
'cause somewhere in the night she'll try to find her way back in
And all that I can hope for is for strength to be my friend

Ol' Country Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Longnecks & Short Stories

City sun goes down at night
Makin' way for Neon lights
Country boy is looking at the moon
City girl is dressed just right
She may stay out late tonight
Country boy just plowed today till noon

From Birmingham to Ohio
How they met nobody knows
Every now and then they get together
She used to wanna climb the walls
She'd never really been loved at all
Not until ol' country came to town

He's the first one to the room
Ice and drinks will be up soon
Everything is perfect when she walks in
They kiss and hold each other tight
They know what's in store tonight
Thery're not someplace they have never been

From Birmingham to Ohio
How they met nobody knows
Every now and then they get together
She used to wanna climb the walls
She'd never really been loved at all
Not until ol' country came to town

She used to wanna climb the walls
She'd never really been loved at all

Old Flames Have New Names Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Longnecks & Short Stories

I left town two years ago and moved on up to Idaho
But swore that I'd be back again - Pick up where I left off, oh man
Left behind some lovely ladies
Grown up sexy Texas babies
I got back in town tonight
Anticipating much delight
I pulled out my black book and called up my old lovers
I got five newlyweds and two expectant mothers

All my old flames have new names
There's a lot of girls in town
Who tied the knot and settled down
I thought I'd start a fire with one of my old flames
But they've all got new names

My sexy little dirt road sport is now called Mrs. Davenport
My pretty little black-eyed Susie's now Mrs. Susan Van Der Hoosie
Rosie who could blow my mind is sister Rose on channel nine
The wildest lover of my life is now a federal judges wife
They don't want to recognize this old familiar face
I'm just a bad reminder of their wild and woolly days

All my old flames have new names
There's a lot of girls in town
Who tied the knot and settled down
I thought I'd start a fire with one of my old flames
But they've all got new names

I'll Think Of Something Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Longnecks & Short Stories

I don't know how I'll get her off my mind - but give me time
I'll think of something
I can't say that I'm all right - but by tonight
I'll think of something
I'll find so many things to do that I wont have the time to think of her
And then if she's still on my mind I'll try to drink enough to drown the hurt
And if that don't work
I'll think of something

Where do I go for love that I still need - now that I'm free
I'll think of something
And if someday by accident we meet - and I can't speak
I'll think of something
If I can't say a word to her I'll blame it on this lump that's in my throat
And standing there what will I do to hide my love enough that it wont show
Well I don't know
But I'll think of something

You can tell everyone love is over and done
You can pack all your things and go
You can lie to yourself and say there's nothing left
But there's one thing I'd like you to know.

That it's never really over
Even though you say we're through
You may be over me but can't you see
It's not over if I'm not over you.

There's not much I can do if it's over for you
I'll just wish you the best when you leave
But you play such a part in my life and in my heart
You'll always be a part of me.

That it's never really over
Even though you say we're through
You may be over me but can't you see
It's not over if I'm not over you.

You may be over me but can't you see
It's not over if I'm not over you...

I said I'm through with honky tonks
They only bring me down
I dressed my best and headed for
The brightest spot in town
I've watched the rich folks come and go
And one thing's very clear
There's just as many lonely people here.

I'm just hangin' 'round a better class of losers
It don't matter if you drink bear or champagne
I've only found a better class of losers
Uptown, downtown, misry's all the same.

It's been all downhill for me
Since baby walked away
I'm down here at the bottom now
And I guess that's where I'll stay
I'm looking for the answers
But all that I've seen here
Is the same old lonely phony atmosphere.

I'm just hangin' 'round a better class of losers
It don't matter if you drink bear or champagne
I've only found a better class of losers
Uptown, downtown, misry's all the same.

Yeah, the blues are still the blues
Still just as hard to lose
Uptown, downtown, misery's all the same...

Bubba Shot The Jukebox Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Longnecks & Short Stories

We were all down at Margie's bar
Telling stories if we had one
Someone fired the old jukebox up
The song sure was a sad one
A teardrop rolled down Bubba's nose
From the pain the song was inflicting
And all at once he jumped to his feet
Just like somebody kicked him

Bubba shot the juke box last night
Said it played a sad song it made him cry
Went to his truck and got a forty five
Bubba shot the juke box last night

Bubba ain't never been accused of being mentality stable
So we did not draw an easy breathe
Until he laid that colt on the table
He hung his head till the cops showed up
They dragged him right out of Margie's
Told him "Don't play dumb with us, son"
"Know damn well what the charge is."

Bubba shot the juke box last night
Said it played a sad song it made him cry
Went to his truck and got a forty five
Bubba shot the juke box last night

Well, the sheriff arrived with his bathrobe on
The confrontation was a tense one
Shook his head said, "Bubba Boy,"
"You was always a dense one."
Reckless discharge of a gun
That's what the officers are claiming
Bubba hollered, "Reckless! Hell!"
"I shot just where I was aiming."

Bubba shot the juke box last night
Said it played a sad song it made him cry
Went to his truck and got a forty five
Bubba shot the juke box stopped it with one shot
Bubba shot the jukebox last night
Well he could not tell right from wrong
Through the teardrops in his eyes
Beyond a shadow of a doubt
It was justifiable homicide
Bubba shot the juke box stopped it with one shot
Bubba shot the jukebox last night

Postpone The Pain Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Longnecks & Short Stories

I'm dying to forget about those goodbye words you said
I thought everything was right but you went and left instead
No pain, no gain, well I'm not out to win
All I really want to do is live to love again

Trying to postpone the pain - Stay in from the rain
Buy a little time - Keep you off my brain
Get out and go insane - Stay off mem'ry lane
Tonight I'll be flying trying to postpone the pain

Until that day arrives
I'll spend all my nights

Trying to postpone the pain - Stay in from the rain
Buy a little time - Keep you off my brain
Get out and go insane - Stay off mem'ry lane
Tonight I'll be flying trying to postpone the pain

The best way to survive
Is spending all my nights

Trying to postpone the pain - Stay in from the rain
Buy a little time - Keep you off my brain
Get out and go insane - Stay off mem'ry lane
Tonight I'll be flying trying to postpone the pai

Talking To Hank Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Longnecks & Short Stories

While I was hunting wild turkey and sippin' on jim beam
I walked up on something like I've never seen
So deep in the woods where I thought I was alone
Stood a structure where something or someone called home
I saw a shotgun and guitar and six- pack of beer
A sign on the front door said guess who lives here
An old red bone hound that looked older than time
And an old man who that he was just twenty-nine

I swear he looked just like ole hank
I wouldn't bet a wooden nickel that he ain't
I got goose bumps and dizzy and felt kinda faint
I think I've been talkin' to Hank

He said I've played that old guitar in a drifting country band
Played coast to coast and a dew foreign lands
Some crowds were big and some crowds were small
Somehow I hope I let'm know I loved them all
I said you're mighty skinny, he said would you believe
It only took one woman to do this to me
But you gotta bet your hat son and get out of the way
When they start hating love and loving to hate

I swear he looked just like ole hank
I wouldn't bet a wooden nickel that he ain't
I got goose bumps and dizzy and felt kinda faint
I think I've been talkin' to Hank

Seems like I've been here before
Just outside some closing door
Standing here just searching for a light
You'd think by now I'd have it down
I know I should be wiser now
'Cause no one's gonna bail me out this time
I'm not getting any better at goodbyes

I'm not any better now than when I first began
It hurts every bit as much as it did way back then
I suppose I'll cry a lot the only thing for sure is
I'm not getting any better at goodbye

Friends may come and friends may go
But lover's memories die so slow
They won't always let you know it's time
But even this shall pass I guess
And you'll do just like all the rest
And I'll start dusting off all my best lines
Oh, I'm not getting any better at goodbyes

I'm not any better now than when I first began
It hurts every bit as much as it did way back then
I suppose I'll cry a lot, the only thing for sure is
I'm not getting any better at goodbye

Oh, I'm not getting any better at goodbye...

Who Will The Next Fool Be? Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Longnecks & Short Stories

After you get rid of me - who will the next fool be
I know I know I know I know
There's things he'd like to know
About the girl I love so.

'Cause after all is said and done
You wont be satisfied with anyone
So after you get rid of me
Who will the next fool be.

Will he believe all those lies
End up like me with tears in his eyes
I know, I know, I know, I know
And I'd like to be the one to tell him so.

'Cause after all is said and done
You wont be satisfied with anyone
So after you get rid of me
Who will the next fool be?

Will he believe all those lies
End up like me with tears in his eyes
I know, I know, I know, I know
And I'd like to be the one to tell him so.

'Cause after all is said and done
You wont be satisfied with anyone
So after you get rid of me
Who will the next fool be?

Lord, after you get rid of me
Who will the next fool be?..

It Sure Is Monday Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Almost Goodbye

With the alarm clock ting-a-ling ringin' in my head
I woke up dog tired, beat down, half dead
Tryin' to recover from another wild weekend
Chuggin' down coffee while I should have been sleepin'

Well it sure is Monday idn't it now
I gotta myself through the week somehow
I had a ball Friday, Saturday and Sunday
But it's all over now and it sure is Monday

Oh, I got to the job site at a quarter past nine
And somehow I stayed awake till lunch time
And then I caught a little nap, stretched out in my truck bed
My feet still twitchin' to the music in my head

Well it sure is Monday, ain't it the truth
I partied too hardy, now I'm payin' my dues
I had a ball Friday, Saturday and Sunday
But it's all over now and it sure is Monday

Well it sure is Monday, ain't it a sin
I gotta work my way through the week again
I had a ball Friday, Saturday and Sunday
But it's all over now and it sure is Monday
Yeah, it's all over now and it sure is Monday.

Woman (Sensuous Woman) Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Almost Goodbye

Woman, sensuous woman
You control the world I'm living in
Woman, sensuous woman
Release my body and let me live again.

Step by step you taught me easy loving
Night by night you caught me in your web
My self control was overruled by passion
Now, I couldn't see the heartache up ahead.

So woman, sensuous woman
You control the world I'm living in
I say woman, sensuous woman
Release my body and let me live again.

Someone true is waiting and I should be with her
And she don't know I crave your ecstasy
But many hearts would break if I don't conquer
This lustful spell you've cast all over me.

So woman, sensuous woman
You control the world I'm living in
Woman, sensuous woman
Release my body and let me live again.

Release my body and let me live again...

Almost Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Almost Goodbye

There was rain on the street last night
We stood beneath the front door light
And everything we said we made sure the neighbors heard
You called me this, I called you that
Standing on the welcome mat
Everything we felt it all came down to just one word
But you couldn't say it and I couldn't say it

You know I tried my best to go
I know you cried 'cause I hurt you so
It should have been easy to say that we were through
But to walk away from love was more than we could do
It was almost goodbye
Almost goodbye

Now there was sun through the blinds this morning
When I opened up my eyes
Outside I could hear a mockingbird
And I could feel your heartbeat as you layed there by my side
I thought of how the world could end with just one word
But you didn't say it, and I didn't say it

You know I tried my best to go
I know you cried 'cause I hurt you so
It should have been easy to say that we were through
But to walk away from love was more than we could do
It was almost goodbye
Almost goodbye

Sometimes the most important words are the ones that you leave unspoken
You know I tried my best to go
And I know you cried 'cause I hurt you so
It should have been easy to say that we were through
But to walk away from love that way was more than we could do
It was almost goodbye
Almost goodbye, no, I couldn't say it was
Almost goodbye, oh oh

I Just Wanted You To Know Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Almost Goodbye

Are you alone---can you talk to an old friend
Right or wrong---I had to hear your voice again
Unwritten law, protocol
Says to leave the past alone

I just wanted you to know
Sometimes driving home at night
I let your memory take control
And you're sitting by my side
I turn up the radio
And cruise down old route 59
And girl it's solid gold, well, I'll let you go
I just wanted you to know

Through the vine---I heard your life has turned out well
As for mine---you know it's really hard to tell
'cause now and then what might have been
Interferes with what might be

I just wanted you to know
Sometimes driving home at night
I let your memory take control
And you're sitting by my side
I turn up the radio
And cruise down old route 59
And girl it's solid gold, well, I'll let you go
I just wanted you to know

Please don't cry, I'll say goodbye
And I wont call you anymore

[Repeat Chorus]

April's Fool Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Almost Goodbye

It's early May and the summer heat is coming down
April's gone and my heart is nowhere to be found
Teardrops fall like showers from the sky
What I'd give just to look in April's eyes.

Another year goes by but I'll wait for her return
She leaves a chill in my soul but a fire always burns
Now she can't break the tie that binds and I'll never make her choose
So I'll just go on being April's fool.

So little time when she is mine, I know
So I'll hold her close and never let it show
If I could only make her stay, God knows I would
As she turns and walks away
I know I'll always remain April's fool.

As she turns and walks away
I know I'll always remain April's fool.

It's early may and the summer heat is coming down...

Texas Is Bigger Than It Used To Be Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Almost Goodbye

Lucky me I grew up beneath that ole lone star
I was raised on fiddle and the steel guitar
Well it used to be if you wanted to swing to a good ole country song
You had to sing your way to Ft. Worth, Houston, Dallas, San Antone
But oh how it's grown

Texas is bigger than it used to be
Coast to coast it's alive in most
Every town and city
I should know I'm on the road
And lovin' what I see
Texas is bigger than it used to be

It's one, two, three step dancin' in the line
Stretchin' that denim having a good time
My daddy told me years ago - he said son there'll come a day
When it'll spread to Minnesota, New York City to LA
It's happening just that way

My heart's too broke to pay attention
If love was a penny I couldn't afford to fall
Every girl in the world tonight could have sweet intentions
But my heart's too broke to pay attention.

I was heart broke and feelin' down
Billy Joe said let's go to town
He said, "An ounce of cure
Is worth a pound of prevention."
He said, "I know a little waterin' hole
Where the band is hot and the beer is cold
There's more woman there
Than at a Tupperware convention."

My heart's too broke to pay attention
If love was a penny I couldn't afford to fall
Every girl in the world tonight could have sweet intentions
But my heart's too broke to pay attention.

I aint ready for another love
Billy Joe's trying to fix me up
He's a friend to the end
He's a man on a mission.
He just punched me in the side
Said did you see what just walked by
She had a million dollar smile
And a body in mint condition.

But my heart's too broke to pay attention
If love was a penny I couldn't afford to fall
Every girl in the world tonight could have sweet intentions
But my heart's too broke to pay attention.
My heart's too broke to pay attention...

Vickie Vance Gotta Dance Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Almost Goodbye

Spinnin' those curlers round all day
Her little beauty shop provides a way
To work at home and sleep in late
So she can dance the night away.

Pilot gotta fly, eagle gotta soar
Give a baby candy, gotta give it more
Cowboy gotta ride, gambler gotta chance
Vickie Vance gotta dance,
Yeah, Vickie Vance gotta dance

She can be dancin' to nothin' at all
And she does a mean swing with the shadows on the wall
Yeah, and I bet she's done the two-step a million times
Yeah, she drives all the boys on the dance floor wild.

Pilot gotta fly, eagle gotta soar
Give a baby candy, gotta give it more
Cowboy gotta ride, gambler gotta chance
Vickie Vance gotta dance,
Yeah, Vickie Vance gotta dance.

Oooh, she can't stand still
Yeah, she's dancin' off the wall
Dancin' on the window sill.

Pilot gotta fly, eagle gotta soar
Give a baby candy, gotta give it more
Cowboy gotta ride, gambler gotta chance
Vickie Vance gotta dance,
Yeah, Vickie Vance gotta dance.
Yeah, Vickie Vance gotta dance...

Till A Better Memory Comes Along Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Almost Goodbye

See the lines in my face, there's one for everyday
I've lived without you and held you only in my mind
See these hands, how they shake, how long it will take
Before I leave you in the past where you belong
One day I might forget, but right now I'm not that strong
So I'll hold on 'til a better memory comes along
If someone could really touch me
The way you used to do
If she could find one single feelin'
That didn't start with me and you
Maybe then I might forget, but right now I'm not that strong
So I'll hold on 'til a better memory comes along
Maybe then I might forget, but right now I'm not that strong
So I'll hold on 'til a better memory comes along
I'm holding on, 'til a better memory comes along

The Will Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Almost Goodbye

We gathered with the lawyer for the reading of the will
Mama sat there quietly between all of us kids
Then he opened up the papers and my father's words were read
You could've heard a pin drop when we heard the things he said.

To all my loving family I leave this old house
Just split up all the money and pass it all around
But now that that's all settled and it's all said and done
Here's a few things that I'll leave with each and every one.

[Spoken]
To the boys I leave the family name, the honesty and pride
And to both my precious girls I leave a million lullabies
[Sang]
Sing them to your children and let them know you care
[Spoken]
Take what strength I gave to you and be patient, kind and fair

To all I leave undying love let no one shed a tear
'Cause I was the luckiest man on earth in the time that I was here
And finally to mother, who's love was ever true
[Sang]
The greatest gift a man can give I leave my heart to you.

We all just kind of sat there not knowing what to say
Then mama looked at all of us and said I'd like to pray
So right there in that office in words so soft and still
We all swore that we'd honor the things in daddy's will...

What A Way To Live Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : What A Way To Live

Each night I make the rounds
To every spot in town
A lonely man with lonely time to kill
All I can say is what a way to live

The paths my memories take
Just make my poor heart ache
I think of her I guess I always will
All I can say is what a way to live

I'd rather lay me down tonight
And never wake again
Than to face another day the shape my life is in

The jukebox playing loud
A face among the crowd
So much like hers it makes my heart stand still
All I can say is what a way to live

I'd rather lay me down tonight
And never wake again
Than to face another day the shape my life is in
The jukebox playing loud
A face among the crowd
So much like hers it makes my heart stand still
All I can say is what a way to live
All I can say is what a way to live

Live A Little Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : What A Way To Live

You've got to give a little take a little
Sit a spell learn to whittle
Live a little now and then
Unwind take your time leave your cares all behind
And see what's around the bend
This life ain't coming 'round again
So give a little take a little
Live a little now and then

In a hurry late for work
Rush and worry but what's it worth
You might earn a rich man's pay
But it won't buy you one more day

You've got to give a little take a little
Sit a spell learn to whittle
Live a little now and then
Unwind take your time leave your cares all behind
And see what's around the bend
This life ain't coming 'round again
So give a little take a little
Live a little now and then

Busy making your weight in gold
But you can't take it when you go
Don't care how high you build your stack
They don't make a hearse with a luggage rack

You've got to give a little take a little
Sit a spell learn to whittle
Live a little now and then
Unwind take your time leave your cares all behind
And see what's around the bend
This life ain't coming 'round again
So give a little take a little
Live a little now and then

This life ain't coming 'round again
So lean back chew the fat
Take a day just to piddle
Live a little now and then

She Dreams Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : What A Way To Live

Thirty years today
She's been upon this earth
And she can't help but wonder what its all been worth
She swears she loves those kids
And she doesn't mind at all
But there ain't much conversation with a three year old

She's trapped inside these walls
A prisnor in this fine surburban home

So she dreams, she dreams
He'll come home from work and carry her away
And he'll see, that she needs
The man she's still in love with when she dreams

And he's proud of his work
And the ladder that he climbed
But from that high rise office he can't hear her cry
Ringin telephones
And decisions to be made
And even when he gets home he's so far away

Then he drifts off to sleep
And she enters her world of make believe

And she dreams, she dreams
He'll come home from work and carry her away
And he'll see, Oh she needs
The man she's still in love with when she dreams

Goin' Through The Big D Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : What A Way To Live

Six short months we went together
Decided it should be forever
Two paychecks are better than one
A diamond ring and it was done
Bought her a house like I said I would
In sub-divided neighborhood
The fuse got short and the nights got long
It was over long gone
Before I knew
Where I was headed to

I'm goin' through the big D
And don't mean Dallas
I can't believe what the judge had to tell us
I got the Jeep she got the palace
I'm goin' through the big D
And don't mean Dallas

Things like this are never final
I'm still payin' on the vinyl
Flooring in the laundry room
It's multi-colored and waterproof
It's a little bit tough to face my friends

The ones that said I jumped in
The river of love a little too soon
That was August
This is June and it's a different tune

I'm goin' through the big D
And don't mean Dallas
I can't believe what the judge had to tell us
I got the Jeep she got the palace
I'm goin' through the big D
And don't mean Dallas

I'm goin' through the big D
And don't mean Dallas
I can't believe what the judge had to tell us
I got the Jeep she got the two bedroom
Mortgage is due
Siding light blue palace
I'm goin' through the big D
And don't mean Dallas
I'm goin' through the big D
And don't mean Dallas

Down In Tennessee Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : What A Way To Live

I talked to your sister last night on the telephone
You know she always thought pretty well of me
She said that the wedding went fine and you were up in New York on your
honeymoon
Tonight I'm down, in Tennessee

I got that letter you wrote, it tore me up
But I don't have anyone to blame but me
I had it all for a while but like everything else, I messed it up
Tonight I'm down, in Tennessee

It's blue tonight and getting bluer
But I'm in the state that I deserve to be
Without you I just can't see things ever looking up for me
I'm so down, in Tennessee

I hope you're happy with him, he's a lucky man
I hope he gives you that home and family
I just want to say if by chance you are ever this way, look me up
I'll be down, in Tennessee

It's blue tonight and getting bluer
But I'm in the state that I deserve to be
Without you I just can't see things ever looking up for me
I'm so down, in Tennessee
I'm so down, in Tennessee
I'm gonna be down, in Tennessee

Gonna Get A Life Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : What A Way To Live

Gotta find somethin' to ease my mind
Gotta get it off of you
You tear at my heart strings one more time
With what you're puttin' me through
I'm not much on hangin' around
Where I'm not wanted at all
I'm not gonna be your love sick clown
Waitin' for your beck and call

I'm gonna get a life
That's what I'm gonna do
So startin' now
You can find one too
I'm gonna get a life
Like I should have done
A long time ago
Before you wrecked this one

This'll be the last time you spin your wheels
Leaving like a maniac
You don't care about the way I feel
There's no need in comin' back

I'm gonna get a life
That's what I'm gonna do
So startin' now
You can find one too
I'm gonna get a life
Like I should have done
A long time ago
Before you wrecked this one
Yeah, I'm gonna get a life
Before the gettin's done

I'm gonna get a life
That's what I'm gonna do
So startin' now
You can find one too
I'm gonna get a life
Like I should have done
A long time ago
Before you wrecked this one

I'm gonna get a life
Before the gettin's done

It's Almost Like You're Here Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : What A Way To Live

At night the wind blows in the rain
Against the window pane
I hear you call my name.
Your voice whispers in my ear
The words are still so dear
It's almost like you're here.

I can almost feel your breathing
I can almost touch your face
You didn't know that you'd be leaving
Memories time cannot erase.

At night with feelings running deep
As I fall asleep
It's almost like you're here.

In silence as I sit and stare
I see you sitting there
Brushing down your hair.
And even through a blur of tears
The vision is so clear
It's almost like you're here.

I can almost feel your breathing
I can almost touch your face
You didn't know that you'd be leaving
Memories time cannot erase.

At night the wind blows in the rain
Against the window pane
It's almost like you're here.

It's almost like you're here...

Rainy Day Woman Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : What A Way To Live
(originally by Waylon Jennings)

Oh, rainy day woman
I never seem to see your for the good times or the sunshine
You have been a friend of mine, rainy day woman.

That woman of mine, she ain't happy
'Til she finds something wrong and someone to blame
If it ain't one thing it's another one on the way.

I woke up this mornin' to the sunshine
It sure as hell looks just like rain
But I know where to go on a cloudy day.

Oh, rainy day woman
I never seem to see your for the good times or the sunshine
You have been a friend of mine, rainy day woman.

Always the same, never complain
Though times gotta be tough
It's not right for you, what can I do
I can never think of givin' you up.

Oh, rainy day woman
I never seem to see your for the good times or the sunshine
You have been a friend of mine, rainy day woman.

Oh, rainy day woman
I never seem to see your for the good times or the sunshine
You have been a friend of mine, rainy day woman...

This Side Of The Door Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : What A Way To Live

Door knob in one hand
Suitcase in the other
And I don't love you rollin' off her tongue
Words ripped right through me
Tore a hole in my heart
Could've hurt me a lot less with a gun
She nearly knocked the wall down, slammin' that ol' door
Now the silence is more deadly than the violence of the storm

I've seen a coyote howlin'
Cryin' for his mate
I've made a home with hobos
In the boxcar of a train
I've heard that famous whippoorwill
And felt the north wind blow
But there ain't nothin' quite as lonesome
As this side of the door
This side of the door

Me and ol' Jack Daniels
Been in this chair for days
And we 'bout rocked a hole in this old floor
Got a pocket full of bullets
A hair trigger .38
I'm gonna put some daylight through that door
I will burn this house down, before I go insane
Use that rockin' chair for kindling, watch that door go up in flames

I've seen a coyote howlin'
Cryin' for his mate
I've made a home with hobos
In the boxcar of a train
I've heard that famous whippoorwill
And felt the north wind blow
But there ain't nothin' quite as lonesome
As this side of the door
I've heard that famous whippoorwill
And felt the north wind blow
But there ain't nothin' quite as lonesome
As this side of the door
This side of the door

The day you said goodbye
Without a tear in your eye
I just can not believe
You could take from my life
Half of everything and all of my heart

Loneliness and your name
They are one and the same
And though I've tried and I've tried
I know that you will not remain
Half of everything and all of my heart

I know that I'm just another
Heartbroken lover
With a great big chip upon this lonely shoulder
But if I ever find out that
There's a life out there for me, for me
I know that time will take

Care of a lot of things
That we're scared of
And I know it won't be long until
I get my share of
Half of everything and all of my heart

I know that I'm just another
Heartbroken lover
With a great big chip upon this lonely shoulder
But if I ever find out that
There's a life out there for me, for me

I know that time will take
Care of a lot of things
That we're scared of
And I know it won't be long until
I get my share of
Half of everything and all of my heart
Half of everything and all of my heart

As The Honky Tonk Turns Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Wings

As the honky tonk turns
And the world goes 'round
I'll be sittin' on a bar stool
Pourin' cold ones down
Watchin' hearts get broken
From hard lessons they've learned
It's just a typical evenin'
As the honky tonk turns

Ol' Frank always plays the same ol' song
And sometimes he even thinks that he's George Jones
But it tears ol' Lester up to hear that jukebox play his life
And he'll tell us once again
Just how he lost his wife

As the honky tonk turns
And the world goes 'round
I'll be sittin' on a bar stool
Pourin' cold ones down
Watchin' hearts get broken
From hard lessons they've learned
It's just a typical evenin'
As the honky tonk turns

Last night I watched Charlene fall in love
For the third time this week that I know of
But tonight she'll be here feeling sorry for herself
Drinkin' like there's no tomorrow
And leaning on somebody else

As the honky tonk turns
And the world goes 'round
I'll be sittin' on a bar stool
Pourin' cold ones down
Watchin' hearts get broken
From hard lessons they've learned
It's just a typical evenin'
As the honky tonk turns

It's just a typical evenin'
As the honky tonk turns...

The King Of Broken Hearts Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Wings
(originally by George Strait)

The kings of broken hearts doesn't ask much
from his friends
And he has quite a few of them
They know he'll understand
That's just the way it goes
The king of broken hearts doesn't know he's a king
He's trying to forget other things
Like some ol' chilly scenes
He's walkin' through alone

He talks to angels and the stars start to spin
He thinks of troubles that he's gotten in
He recalls how his heart got broken
And how it's still that way

The king of broken hearts is so sad and wise
He can smile while he's cryin' inside
We know he'll be brave tonight
'Cause he's the king of broken hearts

The king of broken hearts thinks that he's an ol' fool
He's a little bit like me and you
So what's a king like that supposed to do
With all that blue time
We know he'll be brave tonight
'Cause he's the king of broken hearts
He's the king of broken hearts

Trouble Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Wings

You're gonna get me into trouble
I knew it right off the bat
You're gonna get me into trouble
If you keep looking like that.

I may be alone but there's someone at home
I just know I'm making a mistake
A woman like you walks in a plce like this
You can almost hear the promises break.

You're gonna make me need an alibi
You're gonna make me have to watch my back
You're gonna make me have to tell a bunch of lies
You're gonna make me have to cover my tracks.

Well I told her I wouldn't
I thought that I couldn't
Now I'm so ashamed
When I look at you
It's all that I can do
To think about what's her name.

You're gonna get me into trouble
I knew it right off the bat
You're gonna get me into trouble
If you keep looking like that.

Dont' look like that, baby
No, no, no, no.

You're gonna mix my emotions
And you're gonna tangle my net
You're gonna make me do somethin'
That I'm afraid I won't regret.

I may be alone but there's someone at home
I just know I'm making a mistake
A woman like you walks into a place like this
You can almost here the promises break.

You're gonna get me into trouble.
You're gonna get me into trouble.
You know you're gonna get me.
You know you're gonna get me.
You know you're gonna get me in trouble now don't you?..

One more chance, Lord, I've had so many
The last time you said next time it's the end
But I kept on throwin' rocks at the window of our future
Then beggin' your forgiveness once again

Now here I am with your letter in my hand
Through the tears I see the truth in every line
After all the times I've broken your heart
I think I've finally broken mine

You've stood toe to toe and gone the distance
Never givin' up on me without a fight
Believing that I'll change, and be the man you see in me
Instead of chasin' good-time shadows through the night

Now here I am with your letter in my hand
Through the tears I see the truth in every line
After all the times I've broken your heart
I think I've finally broken mine

I think I've finally broken mine...

Wrong Place, Wrong Time Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Wings

It was a girl's night out and I was sittin' at home
When brother-in-law called me on the phone
He said, Son, let's you and me go steppin' out
I found a little place this girls know nothin' about.
Well, I knew when we crossed that county line
We're in the wrong place at the wrong time.

A mountain of a man was takin' money outside
I saw a line of Harley's and some four-wheel drives
I said, Brother-in-law I think we better steer clear
Don't tell me that you really want to go in here
I ain't a fortune teller but I kinda got a vibe
We're in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Wrong place, wrong time
Lord, I must be outta my mind
If we ever get of this place with our lives
What in the world 'we gonna tell our wives?

I was mindin' my business, sittin' on a stool
Brother-in-law was actin' like a fool
He had a tattooed lady out on the dance floor
And they were doin' a dance I'd never seen before
Then the bartender said that's the bouncer's wife
You're in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Wrong place, wrong time
Lord, I must be outta my mind
If we ever get of this place with our lives
What in the world 'we gonna tell our wives.

That mountain of a man came runnin' inside
The tattoed lady pulled a switch-blade knife
I thought Lord have mercy, we've reached the end
Then the local police came and hauled us in.

We were standing there in front of the night court judge
There was sixteen dollars between the two of us
I said, Judge I'd rather spend my life in jail
Then to have to call home to make my bail.
He said, four hundred dollars and you're gonna pay the fine
You're in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Wrong place, wrong time
Lord I must be outta my mind
If we ever get ouf this place with our lives
What in the world 'we gonna tell our wives?

What in the world 'we gonna tell our wives?
We're in the wrong place at the wrong time...

I May Be A Fool Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Wings

I won't be runnin' back into your arms this time
Don't be surprised when you can't have your way
You didn't want my heart but to control my mind
I guess you thought this all was just a game

You tried so hard to keep me here just hangin' on
You loved to see me dancin' on the string
The benefit of doubt was given much too long
I'm tired of playing out this same old scene

I may be a fool for thinking that your love was true
I may be a fool for thinking I'll get over you
Even though it hurts admitting that it has to end
I may be a fool, but never yours again

How long will it take until you see the light
How many hearts will break until you learn
Don't you understand that love's not really blind
One day you'll be the one who's gettin' burned

I may be a fool for thinking that your love was true
I may be a fool for thinking I'll get over you
Even though it hurts admitting that it has to end
I may be a fool, but never yours again

I may be a fool, but never yours again...

It Wouldn't Hurt To Have Wings Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Wings

Don't get me wrong, I'm doing all right
Can't you see I'm OK
I'm not at home all alone every night
I'm out here dancing old memories away

But it wouldn't hurt to have wings
To lift me above all the pain of the past
And your mind-wrecking love
They say time can fly like a magical thing
But it sure wouldn't hurt to have wings

I don't see things like love any more
The rose-colored glasses are gone
I won't be fooled like I was before
I'm learning now how to fly on my own
But it wouldn't hurt to have wings

To lift me above all the pain of the past
And your mind-wrecking love
They say time can fly like a magical thing
But it sure wouldn't hurt to have wings

I'm gonna fly like an eagle
And rise above it all

But it wouldn't hurt to have wings
To lift me above all the pain of the past
And your mind-wrecking love
They say time can fly like a magical thing
But it sure wouldn't hurt to have wings

No, it sure wouldn't hurt to have wings

Pride's Not Hard To Swallow Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Wings

I wish you'd look who's crawlin' back to you
I never thought I'd live to see today
I swore to you the day
I left, this time I'd go for good
And I was even proud enough to tell myself I could

And it took a lot of lonely nights to ever change my mind
It took a lot of missin' you, and things I left behind
Intending to keep goin', but the goin' got too rough
And pride's not hard to swallow
Once you chew it long enough

I know we won't always see eye to eye
But if you'll take me back this time I'll really try
So many things I should have done, so much I failed to do
I've never needed any one as much as I need you

And it took a lot of lonely nights to ever change my mind
It took a lot of missin' you, and things I left behind
Intending to keep goin', but the goin' got too rough
And pride's not hard to swallow
Once you chew it long enough

No pride's not hard to swallow
Once you chew it long enough...

Settlin' For What They Get Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Wings

From the table to the jukebox
Is just a few short steps
Where a dollar will buy a sad song,
And a few strong drinks to help
Them ol' lonely hearts and honky tonks,
Searchin' for happiness
Tryin' to find what they want
And settlin' for what they get

From the promise of forever
To the waving of goodbye
To many hearts are broken,
'Cause too many lips have lied
To those lonely hearts, and honky tonks,
Searchin' for happiness
Tryin' to find what they want
And settlin' for what they get

So step right up, and wish me luck
And play that song again
The one about a loser
Who just can't seem to win
And all those lonely hearts and
Honky tonks searchin' for happiness
Tryin' to find what they want
And settlin' for what they get

So step right up, and wish me luck
And play that song again
The one about a loser
Who just can't seem to win
And all those lonely hearts and
Honky tonks searchin' for happiness
Tryin' to find what they want
And settlin' for what they get

Tryin' to find what they want
And settlin' for what they get...

Strangers Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Wings

Even though I've only known her for a couple of beers
In just one more slow dance we'll be leavin' here
Holding each other like we'll never let go
Pretending it's love even though we both know.

We'll be strangers come mornin', again
And realize we're not even friends
'Cause daylight will take us from a world of pretend
And we'll be strangers come mornin', again.

Her soft brown eyes bring comfort to me
And in my arms she'll find the strength that she needs
I know it's not right but it don't feel that wrong
And we'll soon face what we've known all night long.

We'll be strangers come mornin', again
And realize we're not even friends
'Cause daylight will take us from a world of pretend
And we'll be strangers come mornin', again.

And we'll be strangers come mornin', again...

Goodbye Heartache Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Thank God For Believers

You've been gone almost a month
Girl I nearly died
For twenty seven days and nights
I sat right here and cried
If it wasn't for your memory
I'd been here all alone
Goodbye heartache, darlin', welcome home.

Treat me any way you want to
Even cuss and swear
Call me anything you need to
I promise I wont care
Just let it all out, you're right I was wrong
Goodbye heartache, darlin', welcome home.

There's really just no good excuse
For the things I said
The way that I stood up to you
I must have lost my head
And I'm not ashamed to say
Thank God those days are gone
Goodbye heartache, darlin', welcome home.

Treat me any way you want to
Even cuss and swear
Call me anything you need to
I promise I wont care
Just let it all out, you're right I was wrong
Goodbye heartache, darlin', welcome home.

Treat me any way you want to
Even cuss and swear
Call me anything you need to
I promise I wont care
Just let it all out, you're right I was wrong
Goodbye heartache, darlin', welcome home.

Goodbye heartache, darlin', welcome home...

Thank God For Believers Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Thank God For Believers

Last night I came home again
Three sheets to the wind
And broke the promise I swore I'd never break
And it came As no surprise
To see the hurt in her eyes
Or the Bible on the table where she prayed
This time I thought for sure she was good as gone
But she just wiped the tears away and put some coffee on

I don't know why she even hangs around
After all the hell I've put her through
And the times I've let her down
She has more faith in me than I have ever found
Heaven knows how much I need her
Thank God for believers

She says "Boy I still love you"
Oh she's Stronger than the ninety proof
I sent coursing through my veins
She says "don't give up the fight
Before long you'll get it right"
I pray to God someday I'll feel the same
Sunday morning beside her in the pew
Through blood shot eyes I try to see her point of view

I don't know why she even hangs around
After all the hell I've put her through
And the times I've let her down
She has more faith in me than I have ever found
Heaven knows how much I need her
Thank God for believers

Wherever You Are Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Thank God For Believers

Once in a life time love comes along
I know it's you that I'm waiting on
And that sweet promise of our first kiss
Keeps me hanging on through times like this.

So wherever you are I'm thinking of you
I wonder if you're thinking of me too
There's only so long time can keep us apart.

So, until we meet keep me in your heart
Keep wishing upon that same ol' star
And know, that I'll love you wherever you are.

Can't say I know what you look like
But you're in my heart and you're on my mind
And I feel your love deep down in my soul
When I finally find you, girl I'll know.

So wherever you are I'm thinking of you
I wonder if you're thinking of me too
There's only so long time can keep us apart.

So until we meet keep me in your heart
Keep wishing upon that same ol' star
And know, that I'll love you wherever you are.

So, until we meet keep me in your heart
Keep wishing upon that same ol' star
And know, that I'll love you wherever you are.

Girl, I'll love you
I'll love you wherever you are...

I Might Even Quit Lovin' You Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Thank God For Believers

Ever since you told me we were through
I've been down, I've been down
The love you said I'd find to take your place
Never came around, never came around
But one of these days I'll stand on my own
And I'll turn this bleeding heart into stone.

Gonna reach way down inside and find a brand new will to live
Got plans to forget about the way you made me feel
Gonna walk outside one night and turn your memory loose
And when I do, I might even quit lovin' you.
And when I do, I might even quit lovin' you.

There was time I thought I knew for certain
You'd come home, you'd come home
But judging from the nights I've spent without you
I was wrong, I was wrong
The time has finally come to face the truth
There's only one thing left I can do.

Gonna reach way down inside and find a brand new will to live
Got plans to forget about the way you made me feel
Gonna walk outside one night and turn your memory loose
And when I do, I might even quit lovin' you.
Yeah when I do, I might even quit lovin' you.

(When I do, I might even quit lovin' you.)
(When I do, I might even quit lovin' you.)..

Numbers On The Jukebox Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Thank God For Believers

I can't recall how many times she said she'd never leave
Or the times she swore the only one for her was me
But the angel I was counting on has all but disappeared
And the only trace of her that's left I find each night in there

Cause she's just numbers on the jukebox that I lean on
There's a little bit of her in every hurtin' song
I used to hate the thought of her ‘til her memory I forget
Cause she's just numbers on the jukebox

B-11 takes me back to the first dance we shared
And A-14 reveals the truth she never cared
One by one they're telling all the stories of my past
And why the love I thought could never die lies here behind this glass

Cause she's just numbers on the jukebox that I lean on
There's a little bit of her in every hurtin' song
I used to hate the thought of her ‘til her memory I forget
Cause she's just numbers on the jukebox

That Side Of You Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Thank God For Believers

Last night I dreamed I went to sleep for good
And in the crowed that gathered round. There you stood
When it finally came your turn to say goodbye
Right then and there I watched you break down and cry

And that's when I knew I was dreamin'
The vision was to good to be true
It'd take much more than me dying
For me to ever see that side of you

At first I thought you were an angel
Waiting there to carry me away
Then the pain left my heart when I felt your touch
And in your arms I found everlasting love

And that's when I knew I was dreamin'
The vision was to good to be true
It'd take much more than me dying
For me to ever see that side of you

Useless Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Thank God For Believers

The day you left I thought I knew for certain
There's no way in this world I'd wind up hurtin'
I thought getting over you was gonna be a breeze
So it all came as quite a shock when it turned out to be.

Useless as these empty arms
Useless as this broken heart
Useless as these nights I spend alone
I could lie and try to say
I quit loving you in just one day
But the truth is, it's useless.

Not long ago I met this little red head
And she seemed to hang on every word that I said
I thought going out with her would get you off my mind
So I spent half my paycheck in one evening just to find.

It's useless as these empty arms
Useless as this broken heart
Useless as these nights I spend alone
I could lie and try to say
I quit loving you in just one day
But the truth is, it's useless.

I could lie and try to say
I'd be over you in just one day
But the truth is, it's useless.

I could lie and try to say
I'd be over you in just one day
But the truth is, it's useless...

Hello Honky Tonk Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Thank God For Believers

How's the world been treatin' you
Lord how long has it been
We got some catchin' up to do
Good to see you my old friend.

Hello honky tonk, long time no see
Never knew that old jukebox could ever sound so sweet
How I missed your neon lights, they sure are a welcome sight
Goodbye lonely nights
Hello honky tonk.

I'm glad nobody's patched that hole
Where my head went through the wall
'Cause I just may head that way again
Before we reach last call
Don't guess I was cut out for
That old domestic life
When she told me to hit the door
I hit yours tonight.

Hello honky tonk, long time no see
Never knew that old jukebox could ever sound so sweet
How I missed your neon lights, they sure are a welcome sight
Goodbye lonely nights
Hello honky tonk.

Hello honky tonk, long time no see
Never knew that old jukebox could ever sound so sweet
How I missed your neon lights, they sure are a welcome sight
Goodbye lonely nights
Hello honky tonk.

Who cares who's right or wrong
The pain will soon be gone
Goodbye wont hurt too long
Hello honky tonk...

Any Ole Reason Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : Thank God For Believers

I used to come in here maybe once or twice a year
But only when I had a good excuse
I'd have one or two then be on my way
But that's way before she told me we were through.

Now any ol' reason will do, any ol' thing that I can use
These days, these nights, the clouds, the rain, the moon
I don't have to think about the love I live without
Or the heart she left that never will be used
Really, any ol' reason will do.

At first I told myself she'd never cross my mind
Unless I was to meet her eye to eye
And only when I felt alone would I turn her memory on
Well, I guess that means I told myself a lie.

Now any ol' reason will do, any ol' thing that I can use
These days, these nights, the clouds, the rain, the moon
I don't have to think about the love I live without
Or the heart she left that never will be used
Really, any ol' reason will do.

I don't have to think about the love I live without
Or the heart she left that never will be used
Really, any ol' reason will do.

Yeah, any ol' reason will do....

You can tell everyone love is over and done
You can pack all your things and go
You can lie to yourself and say there's nothing left
But there's one thing I'd like you to know.

That it's never really over
Even though you say we're through
You may be over me but can't you see
It's not over if I'm not over you.

There's not much I can do if it's over for you
I'll just wish you the best when you leave
But you play such a part in my life and in my heart
You'll always be a part of me.

That it's never really over
Even though you say we're through
You may be over me but can't you see
It's not over if I'm not over you.

You may be over me but can't you see
It's not over if I'm not over you...

I Don't Want To Miss A Thing Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
Album : I Don't Want To Miss A Thing
(originally by Aerosmith)

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While you're far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Where every moment spent with you
Is a moment I treasure

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you
And I don't wanna miss a thing

Lying close to you, feeling your heart beating
And I'm wondering what your dreaming
Wondering if it's me your seeing
And then I kiss your eyes, and thank God we're together
I just wanna stay with you
In this moment forever

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you
And I don't wanna miss a thing

I don't wanna miss one smile
I don't wanna miss one kiss
Well, I just wanna be with you, right here with you
Just like this
I just wanna hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And just stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you
And I don't wanna miss a thing

This Heartache Never Sleeps Lyrics

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

I worked myself to the bone
Tired as a man can get
It's the only way that I know
Might help me to forget
I lay me down
And I pray my soul to keep.

Now, it's two a.m. and I should be
Sleeping like a log
But I can't blame the poundin' rain
Or the neighbor's barkin' dog
It's what you do to me
This heartache never sleeps.

Yeah, twenty four hours of every day
I can feel it down in my chest
From the moment you walked away
Well, I ain't got no rest
It won't let me be
This heartache never sleeps.

Well, like a ghost that haunts me
Down at the end of my bed
Your memory, it taunts me
And it won't stay out of my head
Till you come back
It ain't never gonna leave.

So I might as well get out of this bed
And put the coffee on
Girl you know I'm not alone
At the breakin' of the dawn
'Cause just like me
This heartache never sleeps.

Yeah, twenty four hours of every day
I can feel it down in my chest
From the moment you walked away
Well, I ain't got no rest
It won't let me be
This heartache never sleeps.

It won't let me be
This heartache never sleeps.

Won't let me be

Won't let me be
This heartache never sleeps...

My Way Back Home Lyrics

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

After one of my huntin', fishin' party weekends
I could hardly wait to hold my baby again
A man will never see a more beautiful sight
Than home sweet mobil home in his truck headlights
But except for a cedar deck and cinder blocks
All I saw was a vacant lot.

So I'm drivin' around, all over town
Wonderin' where she hauled it away
Yeah, she's on a roll, which way do I go
I've been through every single trailer park and KOA
She's been mad before, but never this sore
You can surely bet from now on
I won't wander from from her lovin' arms
If I ever find my way back home.

Guess my homeless situation is partly my fault
For another thousand dollars down I could have bought
That house in the country that she loved so much
With all that brick and wood there ain't no way it would budge
It's easy now to figure out where I went wrong
But a little harder finding love that's gone.

So I'm drivin' around, all over town
Wonderin' where she hauled it away
Yeah, she's on a roll, which way do I go
I've been through every single trailer park and KOA
She's been mad before, but never this sore
You can surely bet from now on
I won't wander from from her lovin' arms
If I ever find my way back home.

Yeah, the next time I leave, I'm taking her or the keys
If I ever find my way (If he ever find my way)
If I ever find my way back home.

Boy, I'm as lost as an Easter egg...

I'll Get You Back Lyrics

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

Why couldn't I hear the sound of your heart breakin'
Why couldn't I see the mistakes I was makin'
Why didn't I feel the distance in your kiss
Well, I can't let you get away with leavin' me like this.

I'll get you back, this ain't over yet
Don't know what I'll do but I'll think of somethin'
I'll get you back, you're gonna get
All the love that you've got comin'
I won't give up until I prove
My heart and soul belong to you
Whatever it takes, I'll get you back.

Now I'm gonna be the man you've always dreamed of
Love's the only thing I'll let come between us
You still ain't got the best of me
I'll show you my love is true, just you wait and see.

I'll get you back, this ain't over yet
Don't know what I'll do but I'll think of somethin'
I'll get you back, you're gonna get
All the love that you've got comin'
I won't give up until I prove
My heart and soul belong to you
Whatever it takes, I'll get you back.

Whatever it takes, I'll get you back...

That's The Way You Make An Ex Lyrics

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

I never claimed to know everything
I ain't got no Ph.D.
But boys listen up when it comes to love
You can learn a thing or two from me

I'm no expert on makin' love work
I really can't tell you a lot
Well I don't know how to keep a woman around
But I sure know how to run one off

So listen to my words of no wisdom
There's no secret to my lack of success
Once she draws the line just cross it one time
That's the way you make an ex

I never could spell misery to well
But I know it ends with a Y
Why did I do what I did when I knew
She'd get her half and half of what's mine

Takes more than luck to really mess up
It don't just hapen this way
It took sacrifice and all my exwives
To get me where I am today

So listen to my words of no wisdom
There's no secret to my lack of success
Once she draws the line just cross it one time
That's the way you make an ex
Once she draws the line just cross it one time
That's the way you make an ex
That's the way you make an ex
That's the way you make an ex

Album : I Don't Want To Miss A Thing

It's been too long
Since I traveled down
That ol' gravel road
On the north end of town
And I need a taste
Of the good ol' days gone
So tonight I let my memory
Take me home.

And I'll be seventeen
On my way to pick her up
With a half a dozen roses
In my daddy's pickup truck
And for a little while
I'll just hold her in my arms
Dream on and on and on
Tonight I'll let my memory
Take me home.

We grew apart and I moved away
It's a choice I regret
A little more every day
God I love to go back
To the good ol' days gone
So tonight I'll let my memory
Take me home.

And I'll be seventeen
On my way to pick her up
With a half a dozen roses
In my daddy's pickup truck
And for a little while
I'll just hold her in my arms
Dream on and on and on
Tonight I'll let my memory
Take me home.

Yesterday, ain't that far away
I'll just close my eyes
And drift away.

I'll be seventeen
On my way to pick her up
With a half a dozen roses
In my daddy's pickup truck
And for a little while
I'll just hold her in my arms
Dream on and on and on
Tonight I'll let my memory
Take me home.

Dream on and on and on
Tonight I'll let my memory
Take me home...

Jolie Lyrics

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

Well, I left Louisiana
Lookin' for some higher ground
Trying to make my crazy dream come true
But six months in Atlanta
Done tuned my heart around
Tell me you still want me too
Let me come back home to you.

Please Jolie
Put me under your spell again
Won't you make me feel well again
Take me out of this Hell I'm in.
Oh please, Jolie
This time I'm gonna treat you right
All I want to do is hold you tight
Believe me, I've seen the light, Jolie.

That day I left you cryin'
On the shores of Ponchatrain
I left the only dream I'll ever need
Well Baby, I ain't lying
I can't put out this flame
Gonna get down on my knees
Meet me down in New Orleans.

Please Jolie
Put me under your spell again
Won't you make me feel well again
Take me out of this hell I'm in
Oh please, Jolie
This time I'm gonna treat you right
All I want to do is hold you tight
Believe me, I've seen the light, Jolie.

Please Jolie
Put me under your spell again
Won't you make me feel well again
Take me out of this hell I'm in
Oh please, Jolie
This time I'm gonna treat you right
All I want to do is hold you tight
Believe me, I've seen the light, Jolie.

(Please Jolie)
Tell your momma tell your daddy too
Tell 'em that I'm comin' home for you
Gotta ring for your pretty little hand
Gonna be your ever lovin' man
Tell your momma tell your daddy too
Tell 'em that I'm comin' home for you
Gotta ring for your pretty little hand
Gonna be your ever lovin' man...

What Was You Thinking Lyrics

Artist : CHESNUTT, MARK
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 : CHESNUTT, MARK
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...
