  • 03:34 Lyrics I Wanna Kiss You in the Country

    I Wanna Kiss You In the Country 

    your arms around me like a sunday drive
    dirt roads winding through the tall trees
    not another car in site for miles
    Your lips are sweeter than candy
    forget the city for tonight
    I wanna kiss you in the country 
    and lay you down for awhile
    Seems like it’s been to long way to long since I’ve seen that pretty smile
    cell phones keeps ring ringing and every other distraction to keep us apart
    I gotta get you back in the shotgun seat and make tracks where theres nothing else around
    Crickets N frogs sing a symphony in the moonlight to the beating of our hearts
  • 03:48 Lyrics My Neck of the Woods
    The trees at night block out the light 
    Stars are pinholes in the curtain of night 
    You can feel the stare when there's no one there
    If you're in my neck of the woods then you better take care
    It's a little bit darker in my neck the woods 
    Dangers eyes upon you and that ain't good 
    It's best not to go it's alone
    Should probably take the long way home
    Cuz it's a little bit darker in my neck of the woods
    You can hear the wild dogs howl
    With hungry eyes upon you now
    And if you ain't packing then you probably should
    Cuz it's a little bit darker in my neck of the woods
    Shots echo in the night just like the hood
    probably change your life the things that go bump in the night
  • 02:54 Lyrics No One's Leaving
    Haven't been so lucky at love 
    Never had the fairytale like so many dream of 
    There's been nothing happily in my ever after
    Plenty  take the money and run plenty  just for fun
    But my relationships all sunk like a Titanic disaster
    And I've heard  I love you till the day that I die 
    I  love you for the rest of my life
    I love you till death do us part 
    But They all ended with my broken heart 
    But maybe this time no one's leaving
    You showed up like a dream 
    I was just playing in the bar doing my thing 
    When our eyes met the world it melted away
    I've never felt like this 
    Like you woke me up with that first kiss 
    Wrapped your arms around me like you wouldn't let me go
    Now, now I know 
    This Time no one's leaving
    This Time no one's leaving
    This Time no one's leaving
    This Time no one's leaving
    This Time no one's leaving
    This Time no one's leaving
    This Time no one's leaving
    This Time no one's leaving
    This Time no one's leaving
    This Time no one's leaving
  • 02:59 Lyrics Mudder Trucker
    Born in the sticks in a little dirt shack 
    Miles from the main road it was hell n back
    Every time it rained I looked  forward to
    both axils deep out mudding with you 
    Mud to the runners kicking it up like it was water 
    Barry them axils tilll we can't get any sticker
    Cuz I'm one bad ass mudder trucker
    Cuz I'm one bad ass mudder trucker
    Call up the boys are going muddin tonight 
    The girls are comnig on over its gonna be  tight
    and every now and then we get a little cat fight
    turn in to mud wrestling and wet t-shirt night
    Mud to the runners kicking it up like it was water 
    Barry them axils tilll we can't get any stucker
    Cuz I'm one bad ass mudder trucker
    Cuz I'm one bad ass mudder trucker
    Mud to the runners kicking it up like it was water 
    Barry them axils tilll we can't get any sticker
    Cuz I'm one bad ass mudder trucker
    Cuz I'm one bad ass mudder trucker
    Cuz I'm one bad ass mudder trucker
    Cranking up the Marshall Tucker
    Bad Ass Mudder Trucker
  • 05:46 Lyrics Whiskey Talkin'

    You know if I could I would give you the sky some kind of stratospheric promise I could make

    My feelings I have for you are nothing I can hide my emotions are nothing I can fake 

     

    Oh it's hard to trust a man I could never let you down again

     

    I know I haven't been the best man all the time and half the time and half the man I want to be 

    it's hard to depend on the little boy he's dreaming all the time you got to grow up and carrier weight

     

    Oh no not again it's the whiskey talkin'

     

    There's nothing better for me than the feeling of your body surrounding mine 

    it's a feeling I got to have for the rest of my days the feeling last me the rest of my life

  • 03:32 Lyrics Better Man

    I love you like a fat kid loves cake 

    I love you so much it aches 
    I love you when I'm feeling down 
    I love you when you're not around 
    I really love you and I hope you understand 
    you make me a better man 
    I've made a lot of mistakes in this life
    I might have a regret or two
    but I became the luckiest man on this earth 
    when you said I do 
    I don't deserve the love that you give the me 
    you're like an angel sent from above 
    but I'll do everything to be a better man just to win your love
  • 02:15 Lyrics Lost Weekend
    6 AM it's hard to get out of bed when you got 10 to 12 hours hours of hell up ahead
    But I ain't no Rich man I got to pay my dues
    Seems like forever slaving away all of those colors fading to grey 
    work is a four letter word what else are you gonna do
    It's another lost weekend the kind you sink your teeth in
    Might find myself in the bottom of a bottle or two
    It's another lost weekend feel like jumping off the deep end 
    When you got nothing at all you got nothing to lose
    Minutes tick like hours before Friday and we can cut loose
    Spend most of my paycheck trying to forget that Monday comes to soon
    Seems like forever slaving away all of those colors fading to grey 
    work is a four letter word what else are you gonna do
    It's another lost weekend the kind you sink your teeth in
    Might find myself in the bottom of a bottle or two
    It's another lost weekend feel like jumping off the deep end 
    When you got nothing at all you got nothing to lose
    Trying to forget the hell you put me through
    Trying to forget the hell you put me through
    Seems like forever slaving away all of those colors fading to grey 
    work is a four letter word what else are you gonna do
    It's another lost weekend the kind you sink your teeth in
    Might find myself in the bottom of a bottle or two
    It's another lost weekend feel like jumping off the deep end 
    When you got nothing at all you got nothing to lose
    Trying to forget the hell you put me through
    Take this job and shove it
  • 02:58 Lyrics Free, Easy and More

    I like free easy and more

    It's what God probably put me here for 
    Sometimes it's hard to leave when you can't find the door 
    I like three free easy and more 
     
    I like to keep it simple life is too complicated 
    take it as it comes instead of getting frustrated 
    I like a sunny day with a bit of a breeze 
    just enough to make the leaves dance in the trees 
     
    I like to play my guitar and a honky-tonk 
    and singing all night with the band 
    but if you ask me about my favorite things 
    I can show you that on one hand
  • 04:01 Lyrics Livin' the Dream
    Have you ever had a dream where you were trying to get somewhere but it just kept getting further away
    Trapped in your mind worse than any nightmare like a never ending spiral staircase
    And it went on so long it felt like you were dreaming even when you were awake
    Until the frustration was more than you could bear another loss was more than you could take
    But It's always darkest before the dawn 
    But the sun comes up before too long
    You got a hold on for one more day there's nothing in this life worth taking it all away 
    Maybe it's just a lesson to learn 
    Even the shooting star gets burned 
    Make-A-Wish don't let it go and you'll see you're just livin the dream
    Have you ever felt like you had enough 
    That the things that you wanted were really just to tough
    No one's ever won the race by giving up for every door that shuts there's two more that open up 
    Where there's a Will there's a way  
    And the sun comes up every single day
    Got a hold on for one more day there's nothing in this life worth taking it all away 
    Maybe it's just a lesson to learn 
    Even the shooting stars gets burned 
    Make-A-Wish don't let it go and you'll see you're just livin the dream
    Livin a dream 
    Your livin a dream 
    Livin the dream 
    You got a hold on for one more day there's nothing in this life worth taking it all away 
    Maybe it's just a lesson to learn 
    Even the shooting stars get burned 
    Make-A-Wish don't let it go and you'll see you're just livin the dream
    Livin a dream 
    Your just livin a dream 
    Your just livin the dream 
    Your just livin the dream
  • 03:39 Lyrics I Won't Miss You Mn

    This ain't no warm fuzzy tickle your insides make you feel good love song 

    it's more like a belly on up to the bar you met another and you were gone



    So I try to drink the pain away but it's still there the very next day 

    when I feel that hangover I start it all over it's like another Groundhog Day



    My mama got hit by a train in the rain you never even call me by my name 

    I never knew you until I met you in court you even slept with the judge that did our divorce



    Maybe I'll never find salvation in a bottle 

    but I'll be comfortably numb when I take that last swig on the bottom

  • 02:51 Lyrics She Likes Dixie
    We're going out tonight hop in in my truck 
    She likes Dixie, She likes Dixie
    One hand on the Stick and your luck
    She likes Dixie, She likes Dixie
    Come over here now and let her Buck
    She likes Dixie, She likes Dixie
    She likes Big Dixie when we truck 
    She likes Dixie, She likes Dixie
    She likes Dixie
    She likes Dixie
    She likes Dixie
    4 on the floor watch how you handle this   
    She likes Dixie, She likes Dixie
    Gotta tight little clutch and she's good with a stick
    She likes Dixie, She likes Dixie
    push the accelerator down & get there real quick
    She likes Dixie, She likes Dixie
    There ain't a hard problem that she can't lick 
    She likes Dixie, She likes Dixie
    She likes Dixie
    She likes Dixie
    She likes Dixie
    Nice and slow until she's ready to go
    She likes Dixie, She likes Dixie
    Fast as hell when she starts to yell
    She likes Dixie, She likes Dixie
    She likes Dixie
    She likes Dixie
    She likes Dixie
