"Cowboy Town" (2007)

Cowboy Town Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Dirt, Mud, and Dust
Bibles and Beer
Outlaws, Barb Wire, Saddles, and Steers
Its a simple life, Oh its sacred ground.
Hard times, High winds can't bring us down

In cowboy town, yeah cowboy town
thats were I'm from
Cowboy town

We wear our boots to dinner
Drive our trucks to church
Solid as a rock
Salt of the earth
We like our whiskey strong
Play our music loud
Get things done by the sweat of our brow

Here in cowboy town, yeah cowboy town
That's were I'm from
Cowboy town

Winners, Losers, Sinners and Saints
It's were a good man's word is money in the bank
Bad boys, pretty girls is the name of the game
When ya hit the ground, get up, shake off the pain
That's a cowboy town

Someday when I die and my soul is called home
High on a white horse I'll ride up on it
That golden chute will stand old St. Pete
He'll tip his hat and welcome me

To cowboy town, oh cowboy town
Son come on in to cowboy town
I'm gonna live and die
In cowboy town

Proud Of The House We Built Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I dropped to my knees in that field on your daddy's farm.
Asked you to marry me, all I had to give was my heart.
While other kids went diving into swimming holes,
You and me dove off into the great unknown.
We were barely gettin' by, takin' care of each other.
Then I became a daddy; you became a mother.
Was an uphill battle nearly every day,
Lookin' back I wouldn't have it any other way.

I'm proud of the house we built.
It's stronger than sticks, stones, and steel.
It's not a big place sittin' up high on some hill.
A lot of things will come and go but love never will.
Oh, I'm proud.
I'm proud of the house we built.

Still workin' our way through the land of milk and honey.
At the end of the day there's always more bills than money.
I close my eyes at night and I still feel
The same fire in my heart I felt out in that field.

I'm proud of the house we built.
It's stronger than sticks, stones, and steel.
It's not a big place sittin' up high on some hill.
A lot of things will come and go but love never will.
Oh, I'm proud.
I'm proud of the house we built.

Oh, look at us today.
Oh, we've come such a long long way.

I'm proud of the house we built.
It's stronger than sticks, stones, and steel.
It's not a big place sittin' up high on some hill.
A lot of things will come and go but love never will.
Oh, I'm proud.
I'm proud of the house we built.

I'm proud of the house we built.
It's stronger than sticks, stones, and steel.
It's not a big place sittin' up high on some hill.
A lot of things will come and go but love never will.
Oh, I'm proud.
I'm proud of the house we built

Johnny Cash Junkie (Buck Owens Freak) Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I grew up on Waylon, Willie and the Stones
Soundtrack to my life is a hillbilly song
Old boys like Merle, that man in black
Said what they wanted, never looked back
I tear up to "Crying In Time"
Me and Johnny fight to walk the line

I still drive a pickup, I still wear boots
I grew up country, I'm proud of my roots
Red, white and blue are the colors I bleed
I'm a Johnny Cash junkie and a Buck Owens freak

We got redneck women driving ATV's
Wearing camo bikinis on CMT
I throw back a beer, I pledge allegiance to Hank
I'll take a little less pop, a lot more twang
Three cords and some down-home soul
Some things never grow old

I still drive a pickup, I still wear boots
I grew up country, I'm proud of my roots
Red, white and blue are the colors I bleed
I'm a Johnny Cash junkie and a Buck Owens freak

[Instrumental]

Three cords and some down-home soul
Some things never grow old

I still drive a pickup, I still wear boots
I grew up country, I'm proud of my roots
Red, white and blue are the colors I bleed
I'm a Johnny Cash junkie and a Buck Owens freak

Cowgirls Don't Cry Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Her Daddy gave her first pony
Then told her to ride
She climbed high in that saddle
Fell I don't know how many times
Taught her a lesson that she learned
Maybe a little too well

Cowgirls don't cry
Ride, baby, ride
Lessons in life are going to show you in time
Soon enough your gonna know why
It's gonna hurt every now and then
If you fall get back on again
Cowgirls don't cry

She grew up
She got married
Never was quite right
She wanted a house, a home and babies
He started coming home late at night
She didn't let him see it break her heart
She didn't let him see her fall apart

'cause Cowgirls don't cry
Ride, baby, ride
Lessons in life are going to show you in time
Soon enough your gonna know why
It's gonna hurt every now and then
If you fall get back on again
Cowgirls don't cry

Phone rang early one morning
Her momma's voice, she'd been crying
Said it's your daddy, you need to come home
This is it, I think he's dying
She laid the phone down by his head
The last words that he said

Cowgirl don't cry
Ride, baby, ride
Lessons in life show us all in time
Too soon God lets you know why
If you fall get right back on
Good Lord calls everybody home
Cowgirl don't cry

Put A Girl In It Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

You can buy you a brand new truck
Chrome it all out, jack it way up
You can build you a house up high on a hill
With a pool and a pond and a view to kill
You can make all the money in sight
But you aint livin the good life

Til you put a girl in it
You aint got nothin
What's it all worth
Without a little lovin
Put a girl in it
Some huggin and some kissin
If you're world's got somethin missin
Just put a girl in it

You can buy a boat and a shiny set of skis
Have some fun in the sun, float around in the breeze
You can lay out on a blanket by the lake
Drink a cold beer, polish off another day
Kick on back and watch the sky turn red
A sunset aint a sunset

Til you put a girl in it
You aint got nothin
What's it all worth
Without a little lovin
Put a girl in it
Some huggin and some kissin
If you're world's got somethin missin
Just put a girl in it

You can write you a country song
The DJ wont put it on
They wont dance or sing along

Til you put a girl in it
You aint got nothin
What's it all worth
Without a little lovin
Put a girl in it
Some huggin and some kissin
If you're world's got somethin missin
Just put a girl in it

If you're ridin in your truck
Put a girl in it

If you're gonna have a party
Put a girl in it

If you wanna live the good life
Better put a gir-r-rl in it

The Ballad Of Jerry Jeff Walker Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn (feat. Jerry Jeff Walker)

Jerry Jeff Walker stumbled up the stairs on his way to the
Stage with a Martin guitar and a six pack
Yeah and he was the poet of the Lone Star state

And I was young enough
To think I was good enough to be his opening act
And in a cloud of smoke he took another toke
And counted one, two, three
And I knew right there just breathing his air
What I wanted to be

Buckaroos and jaded lovers
L.A. freeway and redneck mother
Mothers who had raised a son so well
Talking outlawed, long hair loners and stoners
Singing about to come back home and
Most likely too far gone to get there

Hey, Kix, that was 76
That was just enough beer to get us through the set
And get as high as our crowd
We got 700 miles Jerry, we gotta go
You're out of your mind; you'll never make it on time
Why not just have another round

Oh, we were trying get paid
Just trying to get laid
Living on love
Sleeping on the stage
Just turn another page
Never thinking we'd ever grow up

Buckaroos and jaded lovers
L.A. freeway and redneck mother
Mothers who had raised a son so well
Talking outlawed, long hair loners and stoners
Singing about to come back home and
Most likely too far gone to get there

Well, the way I recall the 70's
We were down in Austin and the establishment were
Saying we were wasting our time
The next thing I know
We were making more money than we could count
We're all being sued by the IRS
And having more fun than the law allowed

Yeah, I'm talking loners and stoners
And sing about to come back home
And most likely too far gone to get there.
Yeah, they were all most likely too far gone to get there

Jerry Jeff Walker stumbled up the stairs on his way to the
Stage with a Martin guitar and a six pack
Tools of the trade son

Tequila Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

One shot, Two shot, Three tequila floor,
Cowboy bouncer's 'bout to bowl me out the door
Jose got me stumblin' mumblin' like a fool
That worms got a kick like a Tennessee mule
Wake up in the mornin hurtin head skinned knees
Aint no doubt about whats puttin a whoopin on me

[Chorus]

Tequila Goes down easy, lord it will sneak up on you fast
Tequila Great Big buzz in a lil bitty glass
Tequila Glass, salt, straight up, chilled,lemon lime
Blue on the rocks, frozen margarita time
Mexicali, blue aguave, fire in a bottle
Too much Cabo Wabo do the cucha racha wobble
You think by now a drinkin man would learn
You dont go toe to toe with that lil bitty worm

[Repeat Chorus]

Drop In The Bucket Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

It's just a drop in the bucket 'til the bucket fills up
'Til the bucket fills up it's just a drop in the bucket

It's a wildcard drawn 'til you draw to a pair
Then you draw another pair and you're getting somewhere
Just a penny on the street until you stop and pick it up
When you stop and pick it up, it can change your luck

It's just a drop in the bucket 'til the bucket fills up
'Til the bucket fills up it's just a drop in the bucket

Oh, it's just another day until it turns into night
Then the lights get bright and you feel alright
And it's just another pair of old cowboy boots
Until you're on that floor and you start to move
It's just another song on that old guitar
Until the old guitar makes you a star

It's just a drop in the bucket 'til the bucket fills up
'Til the bucket fills up it's just a drop in the bucket

A shot of brown liquor and a smoky bar
Can make you a little bit better than you are
A small dance floor and a long slow dance
Can turn into a real romance
Take a chance
It's just an innocent kiss 'til it feels like this
When it feels like this then you just can't miss
She ain't nothing but a dream 'til you find that girl
When you find that girl she can change your world

Oh, it's just another house when you're sitting alone
'Til your honey comes home then it's on, it's on
Just a drop in the bucket 'til the bucket fills up
'Til the bucket fills up it's just a drop in the bucket

Take a long hot day and some bright sunshine
To make a little thing called summertime
Take a walk out on the beach and a tender touch
Make a little thing called love
Talking sweet love

It's just a drop in the bucket 'til the bucket fills up
'Til the bucket fills up it's just a drop in the bucket

It's just a drop in the bucket 'til the bucket fills up
'Til the bucket fills up it's just a drop in the bucket

Oh, it's just another day until it turns into night
Then the lights get bright and you feel alright
Yeah, just another pair of old cowboy boots
Until you're on that floor and you start to move
Yeah, just another song on that old guitar
Until the old guitar makes you a star

It's just a drop in the bucket 'til the bucket fills up
'Til the bucket fills up it's just a drop in the bucket

Drunk On Love Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Baby take my car keys, put em in your pocket
Lord knows I got no business with them
I been nursin half a beer for half and hour but the whole rooms spinnin

My brain is actin' fuzzy but the vertigo I'm feelin
Got nothing to do with inebriation
That kiss you just handed me, girl, is a staggerin revelation

Baby I never drank that much
To get this high I must be drunk on love
Baby I'm flyin on a stone cold rush
To get this high I must be drunk on love

I been down on my knees before the porcelain throne
Suffered the wrath of the god of Tequila
After dancing on a bar doin' my very best cowboy ballerina - you oughta see it

Baby I never drank that much
To get this high I must be drunk on love
Baby I'm flyin on a stone cold rush
To get this high I must be drunk on love

I built a pyramid of beer cans on a bar top in Austin
Laid to rest in them like some ancient Egyption
I can see well enough to know you're my favorite kind of intervention

Baby I never drank that much
To get this high I must be drunk on love
Baby I'm flyin on a stone cold rush
To get this high I must be drunk on love

Chance Of A Lifetime Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I came staggerin' in, in the middle of the night
I got my alibi sewed up nice & tight
Cracked the bedroom door, I tried to keep it from squeakin'
'Cause I know there's a wildcat in there sleepin'
But the, the light was on & the bed was made
& there's a dear john written on the pillow case

[Chorus]
She said I've gone to the Bahamas
I've had it with the drama
Time to get out of town, I'm just a slowin' you down
She said I found somebody that likes the things that you used to
Yeah & he's got a lot of money, we're goin' where it's sunny
& baby he's a looker too
She said it was a chance of a lifetime
What was I supposed to do

Oh yeah, I woke up this mornin' in a terrible mess
I had the telephone ringin' & her cat on my chest
I'm wipin' the sleep out of my bloodshot eyes
It's gotta be her callin' to apologize
She must be feelin' bad 'cause she done me wrong
Then I pushed the button on the code-a-phone

[Repeat Chorus]
She said I've gone to the Bahamas
I've had it with the drama
Time to get out of town, I'm just a slowin' you down
She said I found somebody that likes the things that you used to
Yeah she said he's got a lot of money, we're goin' where it's sunny
& baby he's a looker too
She said it was a chance of a lifetime
What was I supposed to do

Oh & I got the stereo & she got the music
Yeah & I got this washer but I don't know how to use it

[2nd Chorus]
She's gone to the Bahamas
Had it with the drama
Time to get out of town, I'm just a slowin you down
She said I found somebody that likes the things that you used to
Yeah she said, he's got a lot of money, we're goin' where it's sunny
& baby he's a looker too

She said it was a chance of a lifetime
What was I supposed to do
Oh yeah, it was a chance of a lifetime
What was I supposed to do

Maybe you can come get this cat

American Dreamer Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I know a woman
Her husband died and he left her with two little children
So she went back to school and she got a degree in business
Yeah, now she owns one
And she taught those kids you can do anything
With the heart of a true believer
Yeah, she's an American dreamer

And I've got a woman
And she waits for me with the light on 'cause she knows I'm coming
And she talks about babies and building a house in the country
Yeah, where it's sunny
And she's got faith that can do anything
But she'll never know how much I need her
Yeah, she's an American Dreamer

Back in the sixties, well Haggard's in prison
He's thinking about writing a tune
And a guy named Armstrong was crazy enough
To think he could walk on the moon
And a preacher named King, well he had a dream
He believed we could all live as one

And a soldier somewhere is praying for peace
While he's cleaning his gun
American dreamers

And I had a father; he said son if something ain't real
Then you don't even bother
And he wasn't a saint
But, I'd swear the man walked on water
Yeah and he taught me
I ain't just a long-legged hell-raising
Son of a pipelining, honky-tonk singer
Yeah, I'm an American dreamer
I'm an American dreamer

God Must Be Busy Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

That anchorman says they're fighting again
Somewhere in the Middle East
The world prays for peace
There's a single mom, just got laid off
Went and lost her job to foreign hands
In some far away land
Last night in Oklahoma
Some twister took thirteen
And they're praying they find the missing three
God must be busy

That highway sign went from slow ahead
To traffic's dead, thought it couldn't get worse
Then that Amber alert
They say she's four, Colorado plates
Heading out of state in a Chevy van
It's hard to understand
You can see it in the faces
Of all those highway strangers
They're praying that God keeps girl from danger
God must be busy

And I know in the big picture
I'm just a speck of sand
And God's got better things to do
Than look out for one man
I know He's heard my prayers
'Cause He hears everything
He just ain't answered back or He'd bring you back to me
God must be busy

The evening news ain't much changed
Pretty much the same since I left home
Yeah, that war's still on
They found that little girl
She was soaking wet, half scared to death
On the side of some road
Them prayers work ya know

And the blood and the cripes are at it
And there's a killer drought down south
And old folks can't afford the drugs they can't live without
God must be busy

And I know in the big picture
I'm just a speck of sand
And God's got better things to do
Than look out for one man
I know He's heard my prayers
'Cause He hears everything
He just ain't answered back or He'd bring you back to me
God must be busy

That anchorman says the fighting's worse
Cities burn in the Middle East
The world prays for peace

"Hillbilly Deluxe" (2005)

Play Something Country Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Yes, she blew through the door like TNT,
Put her hand on her hip, pointed a finger at me.
Said: "I'm a whiskey drinkin', cowboy chasin', helluva time.
"I like Kenny, Keith, Allan and Patsy Cline.
"I'm a full grown Queen Bee lookin' for honey.
"Ha-ooh-hoo, aw, play somethin' country."

Yeah, the band took a break,
The DJ played P Diddy.
She said: "I didn't come here to hear,
"Somethin' thumpin' from the city."
Said: "I, I shaved my legs, I paid my money.
"Ha-ooh-hoo, play somethin' country.
"Ha-ooh-hoo, aw, play somethin' country."

Crank up the band, play the steel guitar.
Hank it up a little, let's rock this bar.
Threw back a shot; yelled: "I'm a George Strait junkie.
"Ha-ooh-hoo, play somethin' country.
"Ha-ooh-hoo, aw, play somethin' country."

Yeah, the bartender yelled: "Y'all, it's closin' time."
She got this wild look on her face,
An' said: "Your truck or mine,
"I know a place down the road,
"It's kinda funky.
"Ha-ooh-hoo, all out in the country.
"Ha-ooh-hoo, now, play somethin' country."

Crank up the band, play the steel guitar.
Hank it up a little, let's rock this bar.
Threw back a shot; yelled: "I'm a George Strait junkie.
"Ah-ooh-hoo, play somethin' country.
"Ha-ooh-hoo, now, play somethin' country."

[Instrumental break]

Crank up the band, play the steel guitar.
Hank it up a little, let's rock this bar.
Threw back a shot; yelled: "I'm a George Strait junkie.
"Ah-ooh-hoo, play somethin' country.
"Ha-ooh-hoo, play somethin' country."

She's About As Lonely As I'm Going To Let Her Get Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Oh, off across the room, she sits alone...
Pretty as a picture, sadder than a sad song.
Well, I'll do whatever it takes, try whatever works.
I can't just sit here and watch her hurt.

While she's so sad, while Mr Right did her wrong,
I'll give her one more drink an' a few more songs.
In the bar-room haze, all alone, she sits.
Oh, she's about as lonely as I'm gonna let her get.

Oh, sittin' lonely at the bar tryin' to drown the past.
Starin' at her broken heart at the bottom of a glass.
Oh, I don't want to push it, but I can't take much more.
Think I'm gonna have to step up an' show heartache to the door.

While she's so sad, while Mr Right did her wrong,
I'll give her one more drink an' a few more songs.
In the bar-room haze, all alone, she sits.
Yeah, she's about as lonely as I'm gonna let her get.

[Instrumental break]

While she's so sad, while Mr Right did her wrong,
I'll give her one more drink an' a few more songs.
In the bar-room haze, all alone, she sits.
Yeah, she's about as lonely,
Yeah, she's about as lonely as I'm gonna let her get.

Oh, my, my.

My Heart's Not A Hotel Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

When your headlights cut across my wall,
Yeah, I thought it might be you.
Lookin' for a place to fall,
An' talkin' sweet, an' thinkin' small.

Seekin' out convenient arms,
Yeah, to rest in for a while.
Someone to keep you safe an' warm,
While you ride out your latest storm.

Oh, my heart's not a hotel you can check in an' out of...
It's not a, a temporary shelter, it's a home for someone's love.
Don't just come here when you're lonely knowing, full well, you won't stay,
'Cause I don't have the strength tonight to turn you away.
Oh, don't let the dawn find me asleep,
On a pillow of regret.
Take all my change, just leave the key,
An' let me keep my dignity.

'Cause my heart's not a hotel you can check in an' out of...
It's not a, a temporary shelter, it's a home for someone's love.
Don't just come here when you're lonely knowing, full well, you won't stay,
'Cause I don't have the strength tonight to turn you away.
[Instrumental break]

No don't just come here when you're lonely knowing, full well, you won't stay,
'Cause I don't have the strength tonight to turn you away.
I don't have the strength tonight to turn you away.
[Instrumental Close]

Whiskey Do My Talkin' Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I'm not some c'mon strong, Romeo cowboy,
No, I'm not that type.
Without a little help, I'd prob'ly have two left feet.
But you ain't gonna let that happen tonight.
Turn up that jukebox, sit me at the bar.
I promised her the moon, you throw in the stars.

Whiskey, do my talkin',
Say all the things I can't.
Here's to you, my hundred proof friend,
Oh, go on an' do your thing.
She's just a line away from fallin',
Goin' wild, an' honky-tonkin'...
Whiskey, do my talkin'.

I'm better on the street in the broad daylight.
If I could bring myself to speak or get a word out right.
But you put me in a bar-room, you put a drink in my hand...
I'm a cool, calm, collected, silver-tongued ladies man.

Whiskey, do my talkin',
Say all the things I can't.
Here's to you, my hundred proof friend,
Oh, go on an' do your thing.
She's just a line away from fallin',
Goin' wild, an' honky-tonkin'...
Whiskey, do my talkin'.

[Instrumental Break]

Oh, I... tell her all the things I can't.
Here's to you, my hundred proof friend,
Go on an' do your thing.
She's just a line away from fallin',
Goin' wild, an' honky-tonkin'...
Hey.

Whiskey, do my talkin',
Say all the things I can't.
Here's to you, my hundred proof friend,
Oh, go on an' do your thing.
She's just a line away from fallin',
Goin' wild, an' honky-tonkin'...
Whiskey, do my talkin'.

Oh, I.

Hillbilly Deluxe Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Hey, up in the backwoods, down in the holler,
Old boys feelin' like a dog on a collar,
Keepin' that chain pulled tight,
Waitin' on Saturday night.

Put on the smell-good, put on Skynard,
Head into to town like a NASCAR winner.
Cruisin' back an' forth to the Tasty-Freeze.
Everywhere you look, all you see...

Is hillbilly deluxe, slick pick-up trucks.
Big timin' in a small town.
Stirrin' it up right about sundown.
Black denim an' chrome to the bone with a little home grown.
A country girl cuddled up...
Hillbilly deluxe.

Yeah, couple cute sweet things drivin' a fastback.
Shoot 'em a cool smile hopin' that they smile back.
"Hey, Baby, what's you name?"
Burn a little rubber when the red lights change.

Here come the blue lights, here come Barney.
Hide all the beer, y'all, let's move the party.
Gotta go, but that's all right...
Do it all again next Friday night.

Hillbilly deluxe, slick pick-'em-up trucks.
Big timin' in a small town.
Stirrin' it up right about sundown.
Black denim an' chrome to the bone with a little home grown.
Country girl cuddled up...
Hillbilly deluxe.

[Instrumental Break]

Hillbilly deluxe, slick pick-'em-up trucks.
Big timin' in a small town.
Stirrin' it up right about sundown.
Black denim an' chrome to the bone with a little home grown.
Country girl cuddled up...
Hillbilly deluxe.
Hillbilly deluxe.
Hillbilly deluxe.

One More Roll Of The Dice Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

You ain't been thinkin' through, now, have you?
The last thing you need is the thing that you keep comin' back to.
The mem'ries still fresh in your mind.
Aware that you lost with it all on the line.
More than you could justify,
But she gives you that look an' you just gotta try,
One more roll of the dice,
Maybe just one more shot in the dark.
One more chance that your luck might change,
While you still got a little somethin' left in your heart.
She's a game you can play, not game you can win,
But one more roll of the dice an' you're believin' again.
Maybe you're still hangin' onto what it felt like,
The higher the stakes, the bigger the rush when it goes right.
An' when you're a gambler in love,
Havin' it all is never enough.
It's a curse when it gets in your blood.
You're down to your shoes, but you can't give it up.
Yeah, one more roll of the dice,
Maybe just one more shot in the dark.
One more chance that your luck might change,
While you still got a little somethin' left in your heart.
She's a game you can play, not game you can win,
But one more roll of the dice an' you're believin' again.
Yeah, yeah, believin'.
[Instrumental break]
She's a game you can play, not game you can win,
But one more roll of the dice an' you're believin' again,
Yeah, you're believin'.
One more roll of the dice,
(One more roll of the dice.)
Maybe just one more shot in the dark.
(One more shot in the dark.)
One more chance that your luck might change,
(One more chance that your luck might change.)
While you still got a little somethin' left in your heart.
She's a game you can play, not game you can win,
But one more roll of the dice an' you're believin' again.
[Instrumental fade]

Just Another Neon Night Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I'm a cool one down at the end of the day.
A little sundown buzz 'n more on the way.
I wash a week's worth of dust off my truck,
While Bobby Earl runs home to get dressed up.

Here comes Clifford... got a forty in a brown bag,
In his pointed-toe boots with a hatman rebel flag.
He's got a Eastwood grin an' a tourist swagger,
Hollerin': "Turn off that rap boys an' bring me some Haggard."

Gettin' drunk, gettin' loud...
Billy throws a punch in the crowd,
Some cowboys lights go out.
Runnin' wild, gettin' high...
Smokin' tires through the lights,
Livin' like we're never gonna die...
It's just another, just another neon night.
We got Ricky an' The Redstreaks playin' down the road.
Oh, it's All Night Ladies Night at the Cotton-Eyed Joe.
JC always gets the girl, Billy's always fightin'.
Poor old Bobby Earl never gets the right one.

Gettin' drunk, gettin' loud...
Billy throws a punch in the crowd,
Some cowboys lights go out.
Runnin' wild, gettin' high...
Smokin' tires through the lights,
Livin' like we're never gonna die...
It's just another, just another neon night.
[Instrumental Break]

Gettin' drunk, gettin' loud...
Billy throws a punch in the crowd,
Some cowboys lights go out.
Runnin' wild, gettin' high...
Smokin' tires through the lights,
Livin' like we're never gonna die...
It's just another,
Oh, neon night.
Neon night.
Neon night.
Neon night.

Believe Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Old man Wrigley lived in that white house
Down the street where i grew up
Momma used to send me over with things
We struck a friendship up
I spent a few long summers out on his old porch swing

Says he was in the war when in the navy
Lost his wife, lost his baby
Broke down and asked him one time
How ya keep from going crazy
He said I'll see my wife and son in just a little while
I asked him what he meant
He looked at me and smiled, said

[Chorus]
I raise my hands, bow my head
I'm finding more and more truth in the words written in red
They tell me that there's more to life than just what i can see
Oh i believe

Few years later i was off at college
Talkin' to mom on the phone one night
Getting all caught up on the gossip
The ins and outs of the small town life
She said oh by the way son, old man Wrigley's died.

Later on that night, i laid there thinkin' back
Thought 'bout a couple long-lost summers
I didn't know whether to cry or laugh
If there was ever anybody deserved a ticket to the other side
It'd be that sweet old man who looked me in the eye, said

[Chorus]
I raise my hands, bow my head
I'm finding more and more truth in the words written in red
They tell me that there's more to life than just what i can see

I can't quote the book
The chapter or the verse
You can't tell me it all ends
In a slow ride in a hearse
You know I'm more and more convinced
The longer that i live
Yeah, this can't be
No, this can't be
No, this can't be all there is

[Chorus]
When I raise my hands, bow my head
I'm finding more and more truth in the words written in red
They tell me that there's more to life than just what i can see
I believe
Oh, I
I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe

Building Bridges Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Since you've gone, my heart said something's wrong.
How long can this keep goin' on?
I'm still blue over losin' you.
What else am I gonna do?

I'm buildin' bridges straight to your heart,
An' all of this distance won't keep us apart,
Won't keep us apart.

Talk to me, talk to me about sympathy.
Don't leave me beggin' on my knees.
Since you've gone, my heart says something's wrong.
How long can this keep goin' on?

I'm buildin' bridges straight to your heart,
And all of this distance won't keep us apart,
Won't keep us apart.

[Instrumental Break]

I'm buildin' bridges straight to your heart,
And all of this distance won't keep us apart,
Won't keep us apart.

I'm buildin' bridges, (I'm buildin' bridges.)
Straight to your heart,
And all of this distance won't keep us apart,
Won't keep us apart.

(I'm buildin' bridges.)
Straight to your heart.
Whoa, I,
Whoa I, I'm buildin' bridges,
Straight to your heart.

[Instrumental fade]

Her West Was Wilder Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

There's a picture of us in a bar, out in California,
Eatin' fish Tacos an' drinkin' cold, cold beer.
An' man we had the time of our lives...
Yes, that was a very good year.
Drove all the way up the coast of California,
All the way the 101.
One time we cruised all the way to Vancouver,
Just to watch the settin' sun, yeah,
Just to watch the settin' sun.

Every time I looked in those far away eyes,
I could see me gettin' left behind.
I gave her my best,
But her west was wilder than mine.
Got lost in the desert an' found an Indian casino,
An' she started rollin' those nines.
Stackin' up the chips halfway to Heaven,
Without even tryin'.
We watched it all go at the roulette wheel.
She let it all ride on the black.
She said: "You can't keep what you never had.
"Can't keep what you never had."

Laugh like the devil, howl at the moon...
I knew I was losin' my mind.
I gave her my best,
But her west was wilder than mine.
[Instrumental break]

An' I was gassin' up in a dust storm outside of Sedona...
She was chasin' a tumbleweed.
She flagged down a Kenwood, jumped in the cab.
It was the last of her I'd ever see.
It was the last of her I'd ever see.

An' where the wild wind blows an' anything goes,
As long as it's over the line.
I gave her my best,
But her west was wilder than mine.
It was wilder than mine.
There's a picture of us sin a bar, out in California,
Eatin' fish Tacos an' drinkin' cold, cold beer.

I May Never Get Over You Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Not that long ago, seems like yesterday,
We were caught up in love... we were swept away.
Seems like overnight from out of the blue,
Something went wrong between me an' you.

Oh, I'll move on, I'll be strong...
Do what I have to do.
No matter where you are, you'll always have my heart...
I may never get over you.

A hopeless dream's insanity...
I'm just a fool with a fantasy.
I close my eyes, I feel your touch,
Just as real as it ever was.

I'll move on, I'll be strong...
Do what I have to do.
No matter where you are, you're always on my heart...
I may never get over you.

[Instrumental break]

Yeah, I'll move on, I'll be strong...
Do what I have to do.
No matter where you are, you're always on my heart...
I may never get over you.

She Likes To Get Out Of Town Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Lookin' at her 'phone; desk tappin' her feet.
Kinda girl your Mamma likes to meet.
A Sunday school dress cuttin' up tight.
When the weekend comes, she's like a red tail-light.

She likes to get out of town.
Yeah, she likes to get out of town.
She's got a little red ragtop she just bought.
Just forty-five minutes from her two days off...
She's watchin' the clock just a-countin' it down...
That girl likes to get out of town, mm.

She's got a little glove box with everything she needs.
Got some red lipstick an' some multi-color beads.
Got some party girlfriends like to keep it unwound.
That girl likes to get out of town.

She likes to get out of town.
Yeah, yeah, she likes to get out of town. (Ooh yeah.)
They got a motel room with a single bed...
Just a-singin' down the road goin' out of their heads.
Gonna turn it on up, time to party on down.
That girl likes to get out of town.

[Instrumental Break]

Yeah, yeah, my, my.
Big front's closed, says the city limits sign.
Yeah, yeah, do tell...
Tell this little angel... don't raise a little L L L L.

She's got a second cousin that keeps her on the 'phone.
Got an ex-boyfriend that won't leave her alone.
Oh, but it won't hurt 'em what they don't know.
What goes on the road stays on the road.

She likes to get out of town. (Yeah, yeah.)
Yeah, she likes to get out of town. (Ooh yeah.)
She was born to shake it an' it's not her fault.
But the competition just loves to talk.
She's so tired of them puttin' her down.
That girl likes to get out of town. (That girl.)

She likes to get out of town. (Yeah, yeah.)
Yeah, she likes to get out of town. (Ooh yeah.)
It's time to crank it on up, time to party on down.
That girl likes, (That girl.)
That girl likes to get out of town. (That girl.)
(Get out of town.)
Yeah, she likes to get out of town. (Yeah, yeah.)
Gonna crank it on, crank it.
(Ooh yeah now.)

Again Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Ain't it funny, the turns life puts you through.
Don't know what's round the bend,
Man, you don't know where it's leadin' you.
Close your eyes, say a prayer, take it on the chin.
It's a dawn sun, comes back again.

Baby, I thought that love was over and gone forever...
Never gonna come back to me.
Never gonna hold me again.
But your love pounds in my heart like thunder,
Flashes through me like lightning,
Making me believe again.

Don't know what I'm supposed to say.
Ain't got a clue 'bout what I need to do.
All I know is I feel right here,
Right now, here with you.

Baby, I thought that love was over and gone forever...
Never gonna come back to me.
Never gonna hold me again.
But your love pounds in my heart like thunder,
Flashes through me like lightning,
Making me believe..

Baby, I thought that love was over and gone forever...
Never gonna come back to me.
Never gonna hold me again.
But your love pounds in my heart like thunder,
Flashes through me like lightning,
Making me believe again.
oh, oh, oh.
Makin' me believe again.

You Can't Take The Honky Tonk Out Of The Girl Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Connie came back for her second cousin's wedding
First time she'd been home in a year or two
Just in time for the rehearsal dinner
that crazy Connie wasn't wearing any shoes

[Chorus]
She lives in L.A. she flies to New York City
That woman's been around the world
You can take the girl out of the honky tonk
But you can't take the honky tonk, take the honky tonk ..out of the girl
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Well the dinner broke up at around 11:30
Boys went out to do what boys do
and Connie said hey girls lets huddle up
Around something 'bout a hundred proof

[Repeat Chorus]

Well at nine a.m. out in front of that church
People are going nuts looking for the groom
And sombody says hey Bonnie by the way where is Connie
She's run off with that boy to Cancun

[Repeat Chorus]

Caroline Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

My darling, I have wronged you
Down the devil's path I have roamed
Regret, sadness and sorrow
Now in my soul have found a home

[Chorus]
My Sweet Caroline
From your loving arms I've strayed
In your heart may you find
Forgiveness I pray
A fool to temptation
I surely played
I come to you for salvation
Have mercy in love's name

[Repeat Chorus]

The chilling cry of sin's wrath
Sounds like thunder through my head
I find no rest now no comfort
In a cold dark lonely bed

[Repeat Chorus (2x)]

When We Were Kings Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Tommy got off at the Texaco
Came bustin' in to Norma's Cafe
Said come on man we gotta go
You know how those party girls hate to wait
Filled up his daddy's trunk with ice and beer
Yeah he was always stealin' the old man's car
Radio never came in too clear
So I'd hang out one on my piece of junk guitar

[Chorus]
Yeah we ruled from the blacktop
To the levee where the party never stopped
Yeah there was power in the night
The spirit was alive
When we would sing
Shan na na na na na na na
When we were kings
When we were kings

Sittin' around the fire one night Tommy called my name
I turned around, he said what do ya think
Had his arm around the prettiest girl I'd ever seen
He kissed her hand and took another drink
I say you must be an angel puttin' up with this guy
She laughed and said play me some Rolling Stones
I couldn't let that chance go by
Yeah I sang her "You Can't Always Get What you Want"

[Repeat Chorus]

That was the fall of '65
I guess Uncle Same was hedging his bet
Tommy's number cam up he said "Hey, I'll be Fine"
"I'll teach 'em a lesson they'll never forget"
Angel and I went to wave goodbye
I guess we'd always thought we'd see him again
You know I took her out a couple of times
We always just wound up talkin' 'bout him

[Repeat Chorus]
Shan na na na na na na na
When we were kings
Shan na na na na na na na
Shan na na na na na na na

That's What She Gets For Loving Me Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

She said what she wants is a man to be faithful
A true heart somebody willin' and able
To stay by her side through thick and thin
A tender touch every now and then

She's not hung up on fairy tales
Or some dream at the bottom of a wishin' well
Fancy cars or diamond rings
What she wants most are the little things

[Chorus]
That's what she gets
That's what she gets
That's what she gets for loving me

At times I lay awake at night
Stare at her laying by my side
Knowin' there in her heart as she sleeps
She can forever count on me

[Repeat Chorus]

Whatever turns her on
I'm here to do it
Till the day they write my name in stone
I'll live to prove it

[Repeat Chorus (2x)]

Red Dirt Road Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I was raised off of old Route 3
Out past where the blacktop ends
We'd walked to church on Sunday morning
Race barefoot back to the Johnson's fence
That's where I first saw Mary
On that roadside pickin' blackberries
That summer I turned a corner in my soul
Down that red dirt road

It's where I drank my first beer
It's where I found Jesus
Where I wrecked my first car
I tore it all to pieces
I learned the path to heaven is full of sinners and believers
Learned that happiness on earth ain't just for high achievers
I've learned I've come to know
There's life at both ends
Of that red dirt road

Her daddy didn't like me much
With my shackled up GTO
I'd sneak out in the middle of the night
Throw rocks at her bedroom window
We'd turn out the headlights
Drive by the moonlight
Talk about what the future might hold
Down a red dirt road

I went out into the world, and I came back in
I lost Mary, oh I got her back again
And driving home tonight feels like I've found a long lost friend

Feels Good Don't It Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

What's it like girl
To have somebody love you
With a love
Too good to be true
You oughta know
Feels good don't it

How bout those lonely nights
You used to pray
Something like this
Would come your way
Thank your lucky stars
Lucky's what we are
Feels good don't it

Some people go through life
Never knowing
What love is
Or where it's going
Me and you girl we just walked up on it
Feels good don't it

You and me girl
We're one of life's little wonders
We go together
Like lightning and thunder
Sky-high
On fire
Feels good, don't it

I Used To Know This Song By Heart Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I sat down to say it
The words wouldn't come
I just couldn't play it
And it tore me all apart

The bell I tried to ring it
The words wouldn't come
I just couldn't sing it
And I used to know this song by heart

[Chorus]
I sued to sing this song to you
For days and days
In so many different manners
In so many different ways
I used to think this dream we had
Could never come apart
And I used to know this song by heart

[Repeat Chorus]

So when I sat down to say it
The words wouldn't come
I just couldn't play it
And it tore me all apart

The bell I tried to ring it
The words wouldn't come
I just couldn't sing it
And I used to know this song by heart

Believer Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

What do I do to make you love me
Baby, like I love you
Why do you keep the key to your heart
Behind a door I can't get through

[Chorus]
I have faith
I hide my time
I'll be all right
I'll be fine
I'm a believer in love

Like a fool playin' with fire
While my flame burns alone
Like a slave to blind desire
Oh I keep hangin' on

[Repeat Chorus]

Somday you'll feel in my kiss
What I do in yours
So wait to see in your eyes
That light I'm looking for

[Repeat Chorus]

I pray
For a sign
Live for the day
You'll be min
I'm a believer in love
I believe in love

Memory Town Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

There's a house down on the corner with the porch light on
And a window I can look in and see you're always home
Waiting for me with the lights low in your silk night gown
Somewhere on the outskirts of memory town

Past the stoplight there's a desert where my Coupe Deville
Roars down a lonely highway and it always will
The wind is in your hair and we're nowhere to be found
Two spirits on the boulevard of memory town

[Chorus]
I can pull the shades and feel your lips they're touching mine again
I can watch the shadows of the moon slow dance across your skin
Hold you in a place where lovers never say goodbye
Every moment comes alive, when I go down to memory town

Round the corner there's an ocean where the waves roll in
And a feeling that you only feel when love begins
We lie together in the sand and watch the sun go down
I close my eyes and smell the warm salt air in memory town

[2nd Chorus]
I can pull the shades and feel your lips they're touching mine again
I can watch the shadow of the moon slow dance across your skin
Hold you in a place where lovers never say good-bye
Every moment comes alive, every time I close my eyes and go back down to memory town

There's a house down on the corner with the porch light on
A window I can look and see you're always home
Waiting for me with the light low in your silk night gown
Somewhere on the outskirts of memory town

Take me down
To memory town

She Was Born To Run Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

She said goodbye to her daddy while her mamma cried
I kept the motor runnin' in my car outside
She kissed him on the cheek, daddy's little girl
Then a woman walked out to take on the world

Through red taillights and a cloud of dust
We went flyin' through the night, it was all about us
Sittin' on the seat right next to me, we drove with a tank full of destiny

[Chorus]
She was born to run
She was born to run
She was born to run born to run to me

With a new world waitin' down the road up ahead
Passion runnin' wild through our hearts and heads
With everything we owned packed in the backseat
We had each other, that was all we needed

They all called me crazy, said she'd never settle down
I was just her ticket, her ticket out of town
But it looks like that night fate proved 'em wrong
'Cause she's been mine, mine all along

[Repeat Chorus]

It's been years now and I never doubted
Somewhere, somehow we'd make through
She's still here, no two ways about it
Her heart's still mine and her love's still true

She was born to run
Was the Master's plan
Born to run
Put her heart in my hand
Born to run born to run to me
[Repeat]

Till My Dyin' Day Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Sometimes I think about how lucky I am
To live where I do, to be what I can
And to know that you're mine when I'm holding you close
And to never forget
What matters the most
I'm gonna run with the wind behind me
Have fun when the sun is shining
Stop when the world reminds me
Got to take the time to pray

[Chorus]
Fight for the right to be free
Smile at what my children might be
Live with you beside me
Oh, till my dyin' day

As long as we are here, you know I'll always be there
If we're down to nothing we've still, sill got so much to share
I know I've been givin' way more than I deserve
I'm gonna live every day like it was my last
Baby, I'll always put you first

[Repeat Chorus]

I'm gonna walk on the road less traveled
Yeah, sit tall in the saddle
Know when I pick my battles
Not to be afraid

Fight for the right to be free
Smile at what my children might be
And live with you beside me
Till my dyin' day

[Repeat Chorus]

My Baby's Everything I Love Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

My baby's like a honky tonk
Open all night, make you feel right
Gets me going, got me buzzing like a neon light
Knock you out like a punch in a barroom fight
My baby's like a smooth shot of whiskey
Make you feel warm, kinda make you feel dizzy
Can't get my fill, I can't get enough
My baby's everything I love

My baby's like a Coupe Deville
Fast motor burnin' comin' over the hill
Oh what a ride, oh what a thrill
Drive all night with my hands on the wheel
My baby's like a trip to town
Radio up, top pulled down
Can't get my fill, I can't get enough
My baby's everything I love

She's all I need in one tight package
Got a spell on me, works like magic
I'm after her like a hound on a rabbit
She's got it all and I got to have it

My baby's like a country song
Dancin' through my head playin' all night long
Plays me like a fiddle, get me singin' along
Well, I can't turn off what she turns on
My baby's like a jukebox rocking
Got the guitars ringing and the big bass poppin'
Can't get my fill, I can't get enough
My baby's everything I love

Nothing but the good stuff
My baby's everything I love

Good Day To Be Me Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Some folks call me crazy my momma call me 'hon
And depending on the mood your in, I might be either one
Hey, I get up and I go to work and I got to work some more
When I get home I take it off and I throw it on the floor

[Chorus]
I'm a country boy and I'm a rockin' roller
Like a little crown in my Coca-Cola
Say a little prayer for all the soldiers
Fightin' for the USA
I never was captain of the football team
You ain't never been a prom queen
It's just us and that's ok
If I got you well it's a good day
Good day to be me

You weren't wearin' makeup baby on the nigh you said we would
It's the funny things that I remember when I'm feelin' good
A dollar in my pocket and a catfish on the line
A song about a simple love that's stronger than the pines

[Repeat Chorus]

When I see ol' glory wavin' when the music starts
I take my hat off of my head and put it on my heart

[Repeat Chorus]

If I got you well it's a good day, baby
Good day to be me
If I got you well it's a good day, baby

Good Cowboy Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Say things to me like a cowgirl would
I'll do tricks for you like a cowboy should
You look romantic layin' in the hay
I need you tonight in a new kinda way
When you look at me with those eyes
It makes me start to fantasize
Do it to me like I know you could
So I can do it to you baby like a Cowboy should

Ridin' the range I think of you
I dig your chili you know it's true
Make big money put it in the bank
That longhorn caddy got a great big tank

You're the kinda woman who's above the rest
Nothing for me but the best
You say you need a fella who really can
Do it you good like a cowboy man

Got a massive wardrobe of cowboy clothes
From the top of my head to the tip of my toes
Ah, you look so good in my hat with fringe on it
So put on my boots hmmm doggone it

Do it to me baby like I now you can
And I can do it to you honey like a good cowboy should

Holy War Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

[Chorus]
Some say a holy war is comin'
Gonna be the end of mortal man
There's a TV preacher sayin'
Armageddon is at hand
Sayin' the Jews, the Gays, the Junkies
The Politicians and Infidels
Have conjured up the devil
Upon the gates of hell

I turn on the TV
Lord I can't believe my eyes
Oh Terror walks the streets
While a million mothers cry
Christians pray to Jesus
Lord help us if you can
Send Gabriel and his legions
To defend his promised land

[Chorus]

All it's prophets lead
While the blind sheep they follow
The path to damnation with no future no tomorrow
Justice she may be blind
Tall and proud she marches on
Judgment day is coming
God himself wrote that in stone

They say a holy war is comin'
Gonna be the end of mortal man
There's a TV preacher sayin'
Armageddon is at hand
They said fire rained down from Heaven
On the towers of Babylon
Oh the innocent the sinners
They all died as one

Now victory will be mine
All feeble and good say
But in the end and in its own way
Righteousness will have it's way

[Repeat Chorus (2x)]

Winter Wonderland Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Over the ground lies a mantle of white
A heaven of diamonds shine down
through the night
Two hearts are thrillin' in spite of the
chill in weather
Love knows no season
Love knows no clime
Romance can blossom any old time
Here in the open
We're walkin' and hopin' together

[Chorus]
Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin'
In the lane, snow is glistenin'
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight
Walkin' in a winter wonderland
Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song, as we go along
Walkin' in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say, "Are you married?"
We'll say, "No, man"
But you can do the job while you're in town
Later on we'll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid the plans that we made
Walkin' in a winter wonderland

[Repeat Chorus]

In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he's a circus clown
We'll have lots of fun with Mister Snowman
Until the other kiddies knock him down
When it snows ain't it thrillin'
Though your nose gets a chillin'
We'll frolic and play the Eskimo way
Walkin' in a winter wonderland

[Repeat Chorus]

Hangin' 'Round The Mistletoe Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Snowy days and frosty nights
Everything looks cold and white
Hangin' round the mistletoe
Hangin' round the mistletoe

Christmas Day will soon be here
And everybody's full of cheer
Hangin' round the mistletoe
Waitin' for you dear

Well, I've waited all year long
Now the year is almost gone
Hangin' round the mistletoe
Hangin' round the mistletoe

But if that's what I got to do
Just to get a kiss from you
I'm hangin' round the mistletoe
Waitin' for you dear

Christmas is a special time
To give and to receive
For every little kiss you give me
I will give you three

You ain't gonna miss one kiss
That's one thing you'll never miss
I'm hangin' round the mistletoe
Waitin' for you dear

I've had my eyes on you
For a long, long time
So I'm asking Santa please
Make that pretty girl mine

I've waited till I'm cold and blue
Just to get a kiss from you
Hangin' round the mistletoe
Waitin' for you dear

Hangin' round the mistletoe
Waitin' for you dear

It Won't Be Christmas Without You Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Tree's in the corner, the fire's burnin' bright.
Shadows are dancin' in the pale candlelight.
Life should be a rainbow, but it's blue:
It won't be Christmas without you.

I wrapped up all your presents,
Wrote my name on every card.
I just can't help it, baby,
Takin' this so hard.
You tell me: what's a man to do?
'Cause it won't be Christmas without you.

I stare into the flames: all I see is your face.
All this joy an' happiness seems so out of place.
As far as I'm concerned, it's just a day I must get through.
But it won't be Christmas without you.

Oh, I wrapped up all your presents,
Wrote my name on every card.
I just can't help it, baby,
I'm takin' this so hard.
You tell me: what's a man to do?
It won't be Christmas without you.

Oh, I wrapped up all your presents,
Wrote my name on every card.
I just can't help it, baby,
I'm takin' this so hard.
You tell me: what's a man to do?
It won't be Christmas without you.

It won't be Christmas without you.

Rockin' Little Christmas Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I wrote a letter to Santa last night
Told him what I want to make my Christmas right
If I don't get it, I'm gonna be blue
I wanna rockin' little Christmas with you

I don't want no tinker toys
Don't wanna waste my time drinkin' with the boys
There's only one thing that I wanna do
I wanna rockin' little Christmas with you

[Chorus]
I want a rockin' little Christmas
Rockin' little Christmas
If I get my wishes
It's gonna be delicious
A stockin' full of love for two

Well, I've been a good boy all year
I deserve a little Christmas cheer
I want your arms around me the whole night through
I wanna rockin' little Christmas with you

Tell me baby what's it gonna be
Where you gonna spend your Christmas Eve
Will I be merry or will I be blue
I wanna rockin' little Christmas with you

Blue Christmas Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I'll have a blue Christmas without you
I'll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won't be the same dear, if you're not here with me

And when the blue snowflakes start falling
That's when those blue memories start calling
You'll be doing alright with your Christmas of white
But I'll have a blue Christmas

You'll be doing alright with your Christmas of white
But I'll have a blue, blue Christmas

Santa's Coming Over To Your House Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

It seemed like just another Christmas Eve
The kids had left some milk and cookies to eat
We cuddled up and read "The Night Before Christmas" again
I headed down for one more holiday snack
I saw this fat man with a pack on his back
Call me crazy but there's toys and stuff all over the den

[Chorus]
Santa's coming over to your house
Christmas coming down the line
Santa's coming over to your house
I know 'cause he just left mine

He left a Barbie and a video game
He filled the stockings with the red candy canes
He hid a skateboard and a football up under the tree
I heard him holler and he pulled out of sight
"A Merry Christmas and to all a good night"
I know what you're thinking
But I'm telling you, ya got to believe

[Repeat Chorus]

The Christmas Song Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Ev'rybody knows a turkey
and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And ev'ry mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so, I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Altho' it's been said many times, many ways
"Merry Christmas to you"
"Merry Christmas to you"

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I just came back from a lovely trip
Along the Milky Way
I stopped off at the North Pole
To spend a holiday
I called on dear old Santa Claus
To see what I could see
He took me to his big workshop
And told his plans to me. So,

[Chorus]
You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town

He's making a list
And checking it twice
Gonna find out who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is comin' to town

He sees you when you're sleepin'
He knows when you're awake,
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

[Repeat Chorus]

With little tin horns and little toy drums
Rooty-toot-toots and rummy-tum-tums
Santa Claus is comin' to town
And curly head dolls that toddle and coo
Elephants, boats and kiddie cars too
Santa Claus is comin' to town

The kids in girl and boyland
Will have a jubilee
They're gonna build a Toyland town
All around the Christmas tree, so

[Repeat Chorus]

Who Says There Ain't No Santa Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Got a wife and two kids, all gathered around
A twenty-pound turkey, snow on the ground
Who says there ain't no Santa Claus
Eric wants a glove, he tears into a box
His eyes are wide with wonder,
I sit back and watch
Who says there ain't no Santa Claus

[Chorus]
I haven't heard a single reindeer running on my roof
I just look into my children's eyes
and there I see my proof
And could it be that jolly old man riding in his sleigh
Is really just the kid in us on every Christmas Day
Who says there's no Santa Claus

Molly gets a doll, Momma's camera clicks
Guess we all get the puppy, he's getting in his licks
Who says there ain't no Santa Claus

I'm trying to read a card in crooked red and blue
Only part that really matters is "Daddy, we love you"
Who says there ain't no Santa Claus

[Repeat Chorus]

Hey, I've heard there ain't no Santa Claus
But I know there's got to be a Santa Claus

I'll Be Home For Christmas Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I'm dreaming tonight of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know it's a long road back
I promise you

I'll be home for Christmas,
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love-light gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

I'll be home for Christmas,
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love-light gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

White Christmas Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

The sun is shining, the grass is green
The orange and palm trees sway
There's never been such a day in Beverly Hills, L.A.
But it's December the twenty-fourth
And I am longing to be up north

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
"May your days be merry and bright
and may all your Christmases be white"

"Steers & Stripes" (2001)

Only In America Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Sun coming up over New York City
School bus driver in a traffic jam
Starin' at the faces in her rearview mirror
Looking at the promise of the Promised Land
One kid dreams of fame and fortune
One kid helps pay the rent
One could end up going to prison
One just might be president

Only in America
Dreaming in red, white and blue
Only in America
Where we dream as big as we want to
We all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America

Sun going down on an La. freeway
Newlyweds in the back of a limousine
A welder's son and a banker's daughter
All they want is everything
She came out here to be an actress
He was the singer in a band
They just might go back to Oklahoma
And talk about the stars they could have been

[Chorus]

Only in America
Where we dream in red, white and blue
Only in America
Where we dream as big as we want to
We all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America

Yeah only in America
Where we dream in red, white and blue
Yeah we dream as big as we want to

The Last Thing I Do Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I've been livin' on truck stop coffee, cigarettes and vitamin C
It's a wonder that the devil ain't caught me
I guess he's tired of playin' hide-n-seek
I've been drivin' like I'm struck by lightin'
I think about ya and I start to speed
I might as well be playin' with matches
In a truckload of gasoline

[CHORUS]

If it's the last thing I do
If it takes me from Tupelo to Timbuktu
If it's the last thing I do
I'm gonna dodge every roadblock, speed trap and county cop
To get my hands on you
If it's the last thing I do

Box of chicken and a day old biscuit
Ain't nothin' left but a few old bones
I outta stop but I'm gonna risk it
Caffeine got me chewin' Styrofoam
Girl I'm callin' out of Kansas City
From a fillin' station telephone
Just had to tell you what I've been thinkin'
First thing I wanna do when I get home

[CHORUS]

[BREAK]

Yeah I've been drivin' like I'm struck by lightin'
I think about ya and I start to speed
I might as well be playin' with matches
In a truckload of gasoline

[CHORUS]

If it's the last thing I do
If it's the last thing I do
If it's the last thing I do

I'm gonna dodge every roadblock, speed trap and country cop to get my hands on you.
Dodge every roadblock, speed trap and country cop to get my hands on you.
I'm gonna dodge every roadblock, speed trap and country cop to get my hands on you

The Long Goodbye Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I know they say if you love somebody
You should set them free
But it sure is hard to do
It sure is hard to do
I know they say if you don't come back again
Then it's meant to be (so they say)
Those words don't pull me through
Cause I'm still in love with you
I spend each day here waiting for a miracle
But it's just you and me goin' through the mill
climbin' up a hill

[CHORUS]

This is the long goodbye
Somebody tell me why
Two lovers in love can't make it
Just what kind of love keeps breaking a heart
No matter how hard I try
I always make you cry
Come on, baby, it's over?-let's face it
All that's happening here is a long goodbye

Sometimes I ask my heart did we really
Give our love a chance (just one more chance)
But I know without a doubt
We turned it inside out
And if we walked away
It would make more sense
But it tears me up inside
Just to think we could still try
How long must we keep running on a carousel
Goin' round and round and never getting anywhere
On a wing and prayer

[CHORUS]

Long goodbye
Long goodbye

Go West Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

That burning sunset in the sky
Is calling out to us tonight
I won't work for my old man
Anymore that you fit into your mammas plan
There's a place for people like you and me
True love's still got room to breathe

And we can drive all night
Into the morning light
Let's go west
It's our ticket out of here
Yeah we can disappear
Let's go west
And that painted sky was made for us
It's everything we ever dreamed of
Let's go west

It's hard to leave this place behind
Got memories turning in my mind
Little white house with a picket fence
That protected small town innocence
But it seems like an even trade to me
That security for our destiny

Yeah we can drive all night
Till the morning light
Let's go west
A place that we can go
Where the tall dreams grow
Let's go west
And we'll find a place to call our own
There's somewhere out there we belong
Let's go west

And that painted sky was made for us
It's everything we ever dreamed of

[Repeat 2nd Chorus]

Yeah let's go west
Oh let's go west
Oh let's go west
Yeah let's go west

My Heart Is Lost To You Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Maybe it was the moonlight
The scent of you on the breeze
Maybe it was your shadow that fell over me
Such a beautiful stranger
Eyes darker than coal
Your first look crossed the desert
Into my soul

Mi Corzon perdido en ti
My heart is lost to you
You have captured my love completely
My heart is lost to you
Oh my heart is lost to you

Maybe it was the music
The way it moved with your hair
Or the heat of the moment
That hung in the air
But when I saw you there dancing
Mesmerized by the gaze
There was some kind of magic
That led me away

[chorus]

Good Girls Go To Heaven Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Some girls go to church on Sunday
Live life by the golden rule
You got girls gonna graduate one day
Suma cum laude from party school

Some they walk the straight and narrow
Some girls they just don't care
Good girls go to heaven
Bad girls go everywhere

Some girls are into heavy metal
Dance with the devil everywhere they go
Others of 'em cut a rug to the fiddle
Dance to the rhythm of the cotton eyed Joe

[CHORUS]

Miss high fullutin' likes to sip fine champagne
Prim and proper drippin' in diamond rings
Little sister wears high heals and blue jeans
A long neck drinkin' certified wild thang

[CHORUS]

Good girls go to heaven bad girls go everywhere

When She's Gone, She's Gone Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Saw an old friend last night I hadn't seen in a couple of years
Stopped in Galatoire's had a couple of beers
Talked about the price of oysters, the coach at LSU
Then like I knew it would the conversation turned to you

He had to go and I looked at my watch, it was 1:45
I headed down canal, the quarter was coming alive
A man on the corner told me that Jesus is coming soon
But I was lost in the music and the crowd and the smell of cheap perfume

It's not good for a man to be alone
But a women needs someone that she can count on
And I walked down by the river in the cold gray dawn
Love is like the Mississippi
When she's gone she's gone

The line was long at Cafe Du Monde so I walked out on the pier
Thought about all the winds and turns and mistakes that got me here
Might as well try to change the course this old river takes
Than to go back in time when you were mine, pretend it's not late

It's not good for a man to be alone
But a women needs someone that she can count on
And what I'd give to go back but the current's just too strong
Love is like the Mississippi
When she's gone she's gone

[Repeat 2nd chorus]

Yeah she's gone

Ain't Nothing 'Bout You Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Once I thought that love was something I could never do
Never knew that I could feel this much
But this yearning in the deep part of my heart for you
Is more than a reaction to your touch
It's a perfect passion and I can't get enough

The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
There ain't nothing bout you that don't do something for me
The way you kiss, The way you cry,
The way you move when you walk by
There's ain't nothing bout you (there ain't nothing bout you)
That don't do something for me

In my life I've been hammered by some heavy blows
That never knocked me off my feet
All you gotta do is smile at me and down I go
And baby it's no mystery why I surrender
Girl you got everything

The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
There ain't nothing bout you that don't do something for me
The way you kiss, The way you cry,
The way you move when you walk by
There's ain't nothing bout you (there ain't nothing bout you)
That don't do something for me

I love your attitude, your rose tattoo, your every thought
Your smile, you lips and girl the list goes on and on and on

The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
There ain't nothing bout you that don't do something for me
The way you kiss, The way you cry,
The way you move when you walk by
There's ain't nothing bout you (there ain't nothing bout you)
That don't do something for me

The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
Your dance, your drive, You make me feel alive

The way you talk, the way you tease
Right now I think you see
There ain't nothing bout you that don't do something for me

Unloved Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I know you know
Just how it goes when it goes
And how it feels
To be lost and left alone on your own
And what it's like
To give all you got and have to stand and watch it
As it walks away
So everyone deserves a chance to live and learn
From mistakes
That we make and hearts that break and bridges burn
Starting now
From this moment on nothing's gonna go wrong
Love is here to stay

You'll never be without
You'll always have enough
When you're in my arms
You'll never go unloved
As long as there is time
And for all of it to come
No matter where you go
I want you to know
You'll never be unloved

So in this life we lead
Some things are guaranteed
You can
Count on the fact that hearts won't act responsibly
Now and then
Comes a love that's heaven sent and meant to be
So baby look at me

[Chorus]
[Chorus]

Deny, Deny, Deny Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

That wasn't me at a quarter to three back in our backyard
Tearing up the roses and the home grown tomatoes in my new car
Those bottles in the driveway and the bottles in the hall
Well I don't know where they came from
It must be burglars in the neighborhood
I sure hope they catch those bums

I know you've got your own version of the truth
There's only three things left now I can do
Deny, Deny, Deny

Well I was allegedly dropped
By a truck stop waitress at our front door
Now who you gonna believe
Your sweet lovin' daddy or those lying eyes of yours
That lipstick on my collar
That you found this morning well that's not lipstick at all
I was just in a hurry to get back to you honey
Had myself a little fall

Oh yeah you've got your own version of the truth
There's only three things left now I can do
Deny, Deny, Deny

Oh please don't answer the phone
Hey ain't it great being home and alone like this
That cigarette voice asking for her big boy
Why should I know who that is
Yeah I know it looks bad but
You're lookin' at a victim of a circumstance or two
Oh what is it now seems like nothing I do ever pleases you

[1st CHORUS]

Deny, deny, deny

Lucky Me, Lonely You Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Girl you've got lonely written all over you
I can read the writing from across this crowded room
All by yourself there in your world of blue
Lucky me, lonely you

Must be in the cards
Fate played a part
Brought us here tonight
Heaven must have lined the stars up in the sky just right

[Chorus]

Who knows the right song, a slow dance
Might heal your heartache
Somethin' tells me I don't know
I just might be here to save the day

[Chorus]

Girl you've got Oh you've got lonely written all over you
I can read the writing from across this crowded room
All by yourself there in your world of blue
Lucky me, lucky me, lucky me, lonely you

Fall Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

I breeze through the day
And nothin' much seems to get in my way
I don't have a care at all
You walk in the room
It's always the same
You call out my name
I turn
You smile
I fall

I'm at home at night
Just me and the moon
But doin' all right
When out of the blue you call
I hang up the phone
I lay down in bed
Your still in my head
I dream
You smile
I fall

Oh what could this feeling be
Could it really be love
That's happening to me
Oh yeah yeah

The closer you get
The harder it is to keep it together
I don't have a chance at all
It's out of my hands
Oh but what can I do
I'm crazy for you
We touch
You Smile
I fall

Oh Yeah
We touch
You smile
I fall

Every River Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

Once upon a time
Somewhere in your past
Someone said forever
But that promise didn't last

Now you don't believe
Love is ever true
Steel yourself against the day
When I stopped loving you

When the day comes that I don't love you
Every star will fall out of the sky
And every mountain will tumble down
And every river run dry

For every drop of rain
That ever touched the ground
For every tear that ever fell
And never made a sound

I'll be there
To hear you call
And I'll be there to catch you baby
Should you ever fall

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

And every river run dry

See Jane Dance Lyrics – Brooks & Dunn

It started with a dare at a bar in Sarasota
A spring break party miles from Minnesota
Jane was with her friends to mark a celebration
Phi Beta Kappa for her college graduation
A little pomp and circumstance
See Jane dance

The bouncer led the ladies to an open-air cabana
A sea of Coppertone's and Hawaiian Tropicana's
A slew of southern beauties were causin' a commotion
Oilin' up their skin to win a trip across the ocean
Jane had never been to France
See Jane dance

She jumped up on the stage and after many margaritas
She took her place in line amongst the tanned senioritis
She tore into a groove and lost her inhibition
Stirrin' up the crowd, she blew away the competition
In her leopard underpants
See Jane dance

Now she drives a Beamer that was bartered for a gig in Barcelona
A Harley that was payment from the bikers in Daytona
She's heavily invested her stock is on the run
Be worth a couple million by the time she's thirty-one
So before you miss your chance
See Jane dance
Yeah she'll put ya in a trance
See Jane dance
Dance
Dance

"Tight Rope" (1999)

Goin' Under Gettin' Over You Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

I woke up in the front yard
In the back seat of a Buick
With the lights and the radio on
I stumbled 'cross the grass
To the front porch through the door
Of a house that once was our home
If love once lived here you can't tell it
If I could just let go I'd sell it
Oh, I'm goin' under gettin' over you

Made my way down the hall
Through the boxes to the bed
Where I used to hold you all night long
Your perfume on the pillow
Where you once laid your head
Stays there to remind me you're gone
It's gonna tear me apart if I let it
I should just move on and forget it
But, I'm goin' under gettin' over you

The days are long and the nights are tough
All alone it's just too much
I'm not handlin' well what I'm goin' through
The whiskey ain't strong enough
My hearts down to givin' up
I'm down to my last cigarette too
Oh, I'm goin' under gettin' over you

Missing You Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

Everytime I think of you
I always catch my breath
And I'm still standing here and your miles away
And I'm wondering why you left
And there's a storm that's raging
Through my frozen heart tonight

I hear your name in certain circles
And it always makes me smile
I spend my time thinking about you
And it's almost driving me wild
And there's a heart that's breaking
Down this long distance line tonight

I ain't missing you
Since you've been gone...away
I ain't missing you
No matter what I might say

There's a message in the wire and I'm sending you this signal tonight
You don't know how desperate I've become
And it looks like I'm losing this fight
In your world I have no meaning
I try so hard to understand
And it's my heart that's breaking
Down this long distance line tonight

I ain't missing you
Since you've been gone...away
I ain't missing you
No matter what my friends say

There's a message that I'm sending out
Like a telegraph to your soul
And if I can't bridge this distance
Stop this heartbreak overload

I ain't missing you
Since you've been gone...away
I ain't missing you
No mater what my friends say
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you

Temptation #9 Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

Yeah I've been hurt and I've been blue
And I've been thinkin' 'bout the changes love has put me through
I've told myself it's got to end
I've had enough and I ain't goin' back again
I've watched 'em come
I've watched 'em go
Six, seven, eight and I can still say no
And then tonight you came along
Only a fool would wanna be that strong

Temptation #9
Make a man wanna cross that line
Face to face with a chance like this
There's only so much that a man can resist

I walked alone, I played it safe
Tryin' not to count the times I walked away
'Cause when you love and love goes wrong
A broken heart just seems too much to gamble on
I first saw you, I had to think
Oh another pretty woman just what I don't need
But when I look into your eyes
Hey I see somethin' makes me wanna roll the dice

Temptation #9
Make a man wanna cross that line
Face to face with a chance like this
There's only so much that a man can resist

Ooh you got it shakin'
Ooh there's no mistakin'
You're the next trip that I'll be takin'

[Chorus]

Hurt Train Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

Ridin' on a hurt train
Making tracks
Ridin' on a hurt train
Ain't no turnin' back
I'm out here on a hurt train
The moanin' of the rails
Seems like a sad song
Last call farewell

A hundred tons of cold steel
Rustin' in the rain
The singin' of the rollin' wheels
Are callin' out her name
That whistle keeps blowin'
That high lonesome sound
It tells me where I'm goin'
Is gonna be a long way down

Ridin' on a hurt train
Making tracks
Ridin' on a hurt train
Ain't no turnin' back
I'm out here on a hurt train
The moanin' of the rails
Seems like a sad song
Last call farewell

Now here I sit loaded
Wondering what went wrong
The whiskey I can hold it
I just don't know how long
I'm out here on a hurt train

A hundred tons of cold steel
Rustin' in the rain
The singin' of the rollin' wheels
Are callin' out her name

Ridin' on a hurt train
Making tracks
Ridin' on a hurt train
Ain't no turnin' back
I'm out here on a hurt train
The moanin' of the rails
Seems like a sad song
Last call farewell

Ain't no turnin' back

Can't Stop My Heart Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

Sittin' in my world alone
I catch myself reachin' for the phone
Gotta get outta here and find a place to get my head clear
I make a wrong turn down your road
And how I got here, I'm afraid I know
A part of me keeps going too far
I can't stop my heart

Yeah it feels what it wants to feel
And it does what it wants to do
I tell it no, then before I know it
It's a right back to lovin' you
I can't stop my heart before it's through
It's gonna break itself in two
I can't stop my heart

I do my best to leave the past
But I can't keep my heart from going back
What am I gonna do, it just remembers what it wants to
And once it lets your memory in
I let myself get swept away again and again
I know it's always tearing me apart
I can't stop, stop my heart

Yeah it feels what it wants to feel
And it does what it wants to do
I tell it no, then before I know it
It's a right back to lovin' you
I can't stop my heart before it's through
It's gonna break itself in two
I can't stop my heart

Too Far This Time Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

She said,
Out with the boys don't cut it no more
And "I'm sorry" is just noise, she's heard it all before
Said that ring on her finger, well it feels like prison
She's talked 'til she's blue, and I don't listen

I went too far this time,
Crossed over that line,
I'm past the point of no return
Livin' proof some fools never learn
Well I pushed my luck, now she's givin' up
Somethin' tells me I went too far this time

She said,
Save your breath boy, I've heard it all,
And keep your place there with your back to the wall,
Said I'm leavin' you lonely 'cause I've had my share
Save those worn out "I love you's" for someone that cares

I went too far this time,
Crossed over that line,
I'm past the point of no return
Livin' proof some fools never learn
Well I pushed my luck, now she's givin' up
Somethin' tells me I went too far this time

Well I pushed my luck, now she's givin' up
Somethin' tells me I went too far this time
Oh somethin' tells me, I went too far this time

You'll Always Be Loved By Me Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

I know forever is a long long time
For a girl to put her heart on the line
Trust is a tight rope we all have to walk
Baby don't be afraid I won't let you fall
With a little faith mountains move
You and me we can't lose

You can count on the sun to rise
And stars to come out at night
As long as there's air to breathe
You'll always be loved by me

Love comes so many times goes
So much out there we'll never know
Call it fate call it destiny
But I think we were meant to be
This old world it spins so fast
So many times they just don't last

You can count on the sun to rise
And stars to come out at night
As long as there's air to breathe
You'll always be loved by me

You can count on the sun to rise
And stars to come out at night
As long as there's air to breathe
You'll always be loved by me

You'll always be loved by me

I Love You More Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

You've stood too long with your tears in the doorway
I guess I've run out of the right things to say
You've made up your mind that he'll make you happy
I don't have the heart to stand in your way
Maybe tonight you think you're in love
But baby tomorrow when you wake up

Just remember when he looks at you
He don't see what I see
That little girl smile, that woman in your eyes
That always got to me
Just remember when you turn down the lights
Who you're really reachin' for
Yeah he can tell you he loves you but I love you more

I was the one that told you he loved you
You were afraid you couldn't be loved
I was the one who you could believe
Would never leave when times got tough
I'll never say I told you so
But take this with you when you go

Just remember when he looks at you
He don't see what I see
That little girl smile, that woman in your eyes
That always got to me
Just remember when you turn down the lights
Who you're really reachin' for
Yeah he can tell you he loves you but I love you more

Yeah he can tell you he loves you
But I love you more
Oh he can tell you he loves you
But I love you more

Beer Thirty Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

I got a six pack, got a single stem rose
My baby's dressed up she's raring to go
I got a Jones for the moon and the jukebox
I like to two step she likes to rock
That clock on the wall it rings, it chimes
It's beer thirty, a honky tonk time

Life's too short, let's get to livin' it
Let's give it all we can give it
Let your hair down, turn the music up
We gonna paint the town flat, tear it up
The party starts here get in line
Beer thirty a honky tonk time

I put in my four day
I'm going home
Lord my get-up has got up and gone
Got my paycheck I'm on my way
It's finally Friday my kind of day
I punch the clock, I hit the road flying
It's beer thirty, a honky tonk time

Yeah life's too short, let's get to livin' it
Let's give it all we can give it
Let your hair down, turn the music up
We gonna paint the town flat, tear it up
The party starts here get in line
It's beer thirty a honky tonk time

Yeah life's too short, let's get to livin' it
Let's give it all we can give it
Let your hair down, turn the music up
We gonna paint the town flat, tear it up
The party starts here get in line
It's beer thirty a honky tonk time
It's beer thirty a honky tonk time

Don't Look Back Now Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

He doesn't want your love
But he can't say goodbye
He's beggin' you to stay
But he can't tell you why
You finally made your move
Your hand is on the door
You know the rest is hard
You've been this far before

Don't look back now
He's gonna see you cryin'
You'll turn around
It happens everytime
That look will always break you down
Don't look back now

You pick your suitcase up
You hear him call your name
You'd give your soul to him
If things could be the same
You stop and close your eyes
You grab some memories
You think of better days
But that's all history

Don't look back now
He's gonna see you cryin'
You'll turn around
It happens everytime
That look will always break you down
Don't look back now

All Out Of Love Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

Are you gonna call it quits
'Cause girl from where I sit
All the signs I read
Say you're over me
My world stopped
And time stands still
Until I know
I know how you feel
Are you all out of love

The story in your eyes
Tells me the well's run dry
Am I a fool for holdin' on
For prayin' this feeling's wrong
If what I fear
Is really true
Then girl
I wanna hear it from you
Are you all out of love
Are you all out of love

Is this the end of the line
Is this as far as we go
Or can I somehow change your mind
Or will your heart be forever closed

Are you all out of love

The Trouble With Angels Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

Alone here tonight, lookin' up at the sky
Wonderin' how I let her go
Did I hold her too tight, heaven only knows
A bottle of wine, a day in the sunshine
Seems like we shared everything
Yeah I felt her love but I never saw her wings

And that's the trouble with angels
That's the trouble with angels
You can try and make her stay
But she's bound to fly away
That's the trouble with angels

Wherever you are, no matter how far
I hope you'll always understand
I'm savin' you a soft place to land
It's crazy I know talkin' like you're still so close
But the memory endures
Are you listenin', I never know for sure

And that's the trouble with angels
That's the trouble with angels
You can try and make her stay
But she's bound to fly away
That's the trouble with angels

That's the trouble with angels
That's the trouble with angels
You can try and make her stay
But she's bound to fly away
That's the trouble with angels
That's the trouble with angels
She'll fly

Texas And Norma Jean Lyrics - Brooks & Dunn

It was a foggy mornin' south of San Jose
We were sittin' in a crowded coffee shop
With nothin' left to say
My cup grew cold and a teardrop rolled
Down her cheek and I brushed it away
I remember it all just like yesterday

And I see it now, I feel it still
It's a day I can't forget and never will
And I hear her voice on the winds of Abilene
She used to call me Texas and I called her Norma Jean

Still see her wavin' through the radiator steam
She was stranded by the roadside on her way to bigger things
She threw her bags in back, said she liked my hat
Her name was Marilyn Justine
I fell into her California dream

And I see it now, I feel it still
It's a day I can't forget and never will
And I hear her voice on the winds of Abilene
She used to call me Texas and I called her Norma Jean

Yeah we took a lotta detours on our winding way out west
Livin' for the moment, forgettin' all the rest
The life that she had waitin' and the one I left behind
And now I'm back here tryin' to sort it out
One fence post at a time

In that coffee shop, the road just stopped
And we faced reality
The place that she was goin' had no place for me

And I see it now, I feel it still
It's a day I can't forget and never will
And I hear her voice on the winds of Abilene
She used to call me Texas and I called her Norma Jean

Yeah I called her Norma Jean
