I Can Take It From There

length: 2:38

Ain't nothin' goin' on in town tonight
Except the loud party crowd drinkin' too much beer
So baby tell me would it be alright
If we just take a little rain check and stay right here
I'm sure we could find somethin' to do
As a matter of fact, baby why don't you

Grab a couple glasses and a bottle of wine
Walk down the hall and turn down the lights
Baby while you're at it you might as well let down your hair
And I can take it from there
Yeah, I can take it from there

I'm gonna put an old record on
Conway Twitty yeah girl I'd love to lay you down
Kill that ringer on your telephone
Ain't gonna stop lovin' you til the candle burns out
Oh there it is that little smile of yours
Come on baby whatcha waitin' for

Grab a couple glasses and a bottle of wine
Walk down the hall and turn down the lights
Baby while you're at it you might as well let down your hair
And I can take it from there

Tomorrow's gonna be here way too soon
Let's not waste another minute
Girl I've got plans for me and you

Just grab a couple glasses and that bottle of wine
Walk down the hall and darlin' turn down those lights
Baby while you're at it you might as well let down your hair
And I can take it from there
I can take it from there
I can take it from there
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Lost

length: 3:12
I'm out on the highway, just about a mile away
Meet me out in the driveway
I'm gonna be there soon
I'll swing by and pick you up
Don't bother getting fixed up
Me and you and this old truck we'll find something to do
No I ain't got no plan in mind
It's such a perfect night so I just thought
We could go get lost

Lost down some old back road
Lost in a song on the radio
Lost in your deep blue eyes
I don't care if we spend all night
Lost by the river cross the turnpike
Somewhere near nowhere is my favorite thing to do
What you say girl me and you
Go get a little lost

Come on baby let's go
When we get there we'll know
No bars on the cellphone
Sounds good to me
We can find us a place to park
By the water underneath the stars
And do a little fishin' in the dark
If you know what I mean
Well all we need's a tank of gas
So grab that GPS and turn it off
Let's go get lost

Lost down some old back road
Lost in a song on the radio
Lost in your deep blue eyes
I don't care if we spend all night
Lost by the river cross the turnpike
Somewhere near nowhere is my favorite thing to do
What you say girl me and you
Go get a little lost

No I ain't got no plan in mind
It's such a perfect night
So I just thought we could get

Lost down some old back road
Lost in a song on the radio
Lost in your deep blue eyes
I don't care if we spend all night
Lost by the river cross the turnpike
Somewhere near nowhere is my favorite thing to do
What you say girl me and you
Go get a little lost

Tomorrow

length: 3:40
Tomorrow I'm gonna leave here
I'm gonna let you go and walk away
Like every day I said I would
And tomorrow, I'm gonna listen
To that voice of reason inside
My head telling me that we're no good

But tonight I'm gonna give in one last time
Rock you strong in these arms of mine
Forget all the regrets that are bound to follow
We're like fire and gasoline
I'm no good for you
You're no good for me

We only bring each other tears and sorrow
But tonight, I'm gonna love you
Like there's no

Tomorrow I'll be stronger
I'm not gonna break down and
Call you up when my heart cries out for you
And tomorrow, you won't believe it
But when I pass your house
I won't stop no matter how bad I want to

But tonight I'm gonna give in one last time
Rock you strong in these arms of mine
Forget all the regrets that are bound to follow
We're like fire and gasoline
I'm no good for you, you're no good for me

We only bring each other tears and sorrow
But tonight, I'm gonna love you
Like there's no tomorrow

Oh baby when we're good, you know we're great
But there's too much bad for us to think,
That there's anything worth trying to save

But tonight I'm gonna give in one last time
Rock you strong in these arms of mine
Forget all the regrets that are bound to follow
We're like fire and gasoline
I'm no good for you, you're no good for me
We only bring each other tears and sorrow
But tonight, I'm gonna love you like there's no

Tomorrow, I'm gonna leave here
I'm gonna let you go and walk away
Like every day I said I would

Save Water, Drink Beer

length: 2:47
It ain't rained in four months
One cigarette spark will burn the whole town up
That 'ole well is plum dry
The city put a limit on the water you can buy
We don't mind 'cause 'round here
We save water and drink beer

Ice cold, genuine, raise 'em up, drip 'em dry
Holler and swaller y'all
Support your local wildlife
Do your part around here
Save water and drink beer

We're goin' green, hey look at us
We're maybe even doin' just a little too much
Poppin' tops, gettin' tans
And that's the price we'll pay 'til the long drought ends
We help the world around here
We save water and drink beer

Ice cold, genuine, raise 'em up, drip 'em dry
Holler and swaller y'all
Support your local wildlife
Do your part around here
Save water and drink beer
Drink beer

Bottoms here
Let's start tonight
Plant a seed and tell a friend
And I think I could drink a little

Ice cold, genuine, raise 'em up, and drip 'em dry
Holler and swaller y'all
Support your local wildlife
Do your part around here
We save water and drink beer

Say it loud and say it clear
Save water and drink beer, hey
Drink beer

Neon

length: 3:46
The sky in Cheyenne, Wyoming
Is just about as blue as it gets
And if you ain't seen a Santa Fe sunset,
You ain't seen red
Texas sunflower yellow
Can take your breath away
I've seen it all
From the orange of the fall
To the green of the summer,
But my favorite color is

Neon, the light they always leave on
A weekend on the rocks
And an old school jukebox
With a little Johnny Lee on
The buzz I love to be on
You put a double on your troubles on line
This end of the tunnel is neon

The sun can do the job in the daytime
But the moon ain't quite bright enough
To light up the way to playtime for people like us
Just like a beach side beacon
Callin' all the ships back home
A few thousand volts to cut through the smoke
The windows are tinted
That's why they invented

Neon, the light they always leave on
The weekend on the rocks
An old school jukebox
With a little Johnny Lee on
It's the buzz I love to be on
You put a double on your troubles on line
This end of the tunnel is always neon

You know I've seen it all
From the orange of the fall
To the green of the summer,
But my favorite color is

Neon, the light they always leave on
Put a double on your troubles
This end of the tunnel is neon

Old Love Feels New

length: 4:01
Grand-daddy always said when he was 17
He met the girl, the one in all his dreams
And man that was it was it he never once looked back
He found something he just knew was gonna last
And if you ask him bout that day
He'll just tap his chest
And say

That's how you know
When it grabs a hold of you and won't let go
And you feel like she's always been in your soul
And as time goes by she's still surprising you
That's how you know it's true
When a new love feels old
And an old love feels new

He said I walked up to her door
And I was shaking like a leaf there on her porch
Til she flashed that smile at me
And son she took my breathe away
And she still does to this day

That's how you know
When it grabs a hold of you and won't let go
When you feel like she's always been in your soul
And as time goes by she's still surprising you
That's how you know it's true
When a new love feel old
And an old love feels new

Now I finally see just what he means
'Cause that's how I feel
Now that you're with me

That's how I know
'Cause you grabbed a hold of me and won't let go
And it feels like you've always been in my soul

That's how you know
When it grabs a hold of you and won't let go
When you feel like she's always been in your soul
And as time goes by she's still surprising you
That's how you know it's true
When a new love feels old
And an old love feels new

You

length: 2:46
The bluest skies don't seem so blue
And the stars seem to be a little dimmer too
Now that you're around you put 'em all to shame
Let me break it down 'cause what I am trying to say is

No on gets me like you and when you kiss me
Girl you rock me harder than some downtown band
I thought I knew what love was, but I didn't have a clue
I never found anything that makes me feel like I do about you

Got a whole new direction it seems these days
I used to rush off to work and get home late
But now I show up late and rush back home
My priorities are different, I can't leave you alone

No on gets me like you and when you kiss me
Girl you rock me harder than some downtown band
I thought I knew what love was, but I didn't have a clue
I never found anything that make me feel like I do about you

Girl if you ever get to guessing if I am thinking 'bout you
Just remember,

No on gets me like you and when you kiss me
Girl you rock me harder than some downtown band
I thought I knew what love was, but I didn't have a clue
I never found anything that make me feel like I do about you

You, oh you

Flashlight

length: 3:24
He said son hold it still
Keep that beam shining straight
He'd have a 9/16ths in one hand
Working on that Chevrolet
It seemed like every Saturday
Soon as the sun went down
We'd be huddled underneath that hood
Tinkering around
And of all of the great memories I have
The best ones are those nights just me and my dad

He'll never how much he taught me
Out in that garage
And I guess the stuff that stuck
Was more about life than fixing cars
Cause to this day I still can't make 'em run right
But I sure did learn a lot
Just holding the flashlight

He told me a lot of stories
About Grandpa and the war
While he was trying to show me
What a carburetor's for
And I learned a couple cuss words
When he skinned his knuckles up
And I found out momma was the only girl
He ever really loved
But when I asked him about women, he just laughed
Said if we stayed out here all year
We wouldn't have time enough for that

He'll never how much he taught me
Out in that garage
And I guess the stuff that stuck
Was more about life than fixing cars
'Cause to this day I still can't make 'em run right
But I sure did learn a lot
Just holding the flashlight

Up to this day I still can't make 'em run right
But deep inside I know that it's alright
'Cause I sure did learn a lot
Just holding the flashlight

Thanks old man

When She’s On

length: 3:10
She turns every head coming down the sidewalk
In that red sundress that she just bought
Causing a traffic jam on a green light
A string of pearls showing off her suntan
And all those curls dancing 'round her Ray Bans
If you think that's something to see

You ought to see her when she's on that front porch
In those cut-off jeans
And that Texas Longhorn t-shirt, hair drying in the breeze
Humming along to some old Haggard song
You ought to see her when she's on

Down at the office in those high heels
Looking like a million, closing big deals
She'll remind the boys eyes are way up here
Yeah that'll make you smile ear to ear

You ought to see her when she's on that leather couch
Reading that fairy tale
To a sleepy eyed little girl in pajamas and ponytails
Saying one day your prince charming will come along
You ought to see her when she's on

Oh you ought to see her when she's on that front porch
In those old cut-off jeans
And that Texas Longhorn t-shirt is smiling back at me
When you see her dressed to kill and it drops your jaw

You ought to see her when she's on that leather couch
Reading that fairy tale that's when she's on
That's when she's on that front porch
In those old cut-off jeans, that's when she's on

Oh when she's on
That's when she's on

She’s Got This Thing About Her

length: 3:02
It might be her smile cause it can change my day
Blue eyes that chase my blues away
Might be her touch that keeps me coming back for more
Her loving words that keep me going strong
That heart of hers I hang my future on
What it is well I can't say for sure

It's just she's got this thing about her
She's got this thing about her
Like the magic in your favorite song
You just can't put your finger on
In her arms when we're all alone
I get the feeling that I've come back home
She's got this thing about her

She stops time when she moves through a room
When she leaves she's always gone too soon
And I'm counting down the minutes till she's back
She's the love I've known eternally
That always feels brand new to me
I can't separate the fiction from the fact

Its just she's got this thing about her
She's got this thing about her
Like a hymn in a cathedral hall
Watching April snowflakes fall
In her arms when we're all alone
I get the feeling that I've come back home
She's got this thing about her

Like the magic in your favorite song
You just can't put your finger on
She's got this thing about her
