Are You Ready for the Country (feat. Eric Church)

length: 3:29

Club U.S.A.

length: 3:19

Being born here, it's like hitting the lottery
If you're lucky enough, to live in the land of the free
If your in, then I say you guided me in the shade
Everybody was in Club USA

I'm a good standing member, I bleed Red, White and Blue
I believe in the American dream, now brother, how 'bout you? (I sure do)
If you don't want in, you must live in a daze
Everybody was in Club USA

Club USA
Once you're in, you're gonna wanna stay
It is the place where everybody wants to live, work and play
A piece of paradise, Club USA

We got swimming pools, barbecue in the back yard
Got Kid Rock and Sandra, dirty, hairy movie stars
If your messing us, best get out of our way
We'll steam roll you, Club USA

Club USA
Once you're in, you're gonna wanna stay
It is the place where everybody wants to live, work and play
A piece of paradise, Club USA
Its the good life, Club USA
(Ow!)

(solo)

Hey, Club USA
Once you're in, you're gonna wanna stay
It is the place where everybody wants to live, work and play
A piece of paradise, Club USA
A piece of paradise, Club USA

It's the place I'm gonna live, work and play
We got it made at Club USA
Made in the shade, Club USA
Live and pray, everyday
What you say? Club USA

(I said U,S,A, baby!)

USA!
USA!
USA!

(That's what I'm talking about)

God Fearin' Man

length: 2:37

Up and gone at the break of dawn
Got coffee in a thermos
Pretty little thing that wears my ring
Shes the fire in my furnace
Tiptoe in and I kiss the kids
Then it's off to make a living
And on my way give a little thanks
For the blessings I've been given

Day in, day out, sun up to sun down
I am what I am
Just your ordinary, every day, one-woman-lovin', baby-raisin', blue collar, God fearin' man

My old man's the kind of guy
Shoots straight as an arrow
Talks the talk and walks the walk
Even though the road is narrow
He's a bow-your-head, do-what-momma-says
Forty hour a week machine
A might high mark, but I try hard
Not to fall far from the tree

Day in, day out, sun up to sun down
I am what I am
Just your ordinary, every day, one-woman lovin', baby-raisin', blue collar, God fearin' man

(Instrumental)

No I'm no saint, but I know wrong from right
And every day I'm just gonna enjoy my life

Day in, day out, sun up to sun down
I am what I am (that's for sure)
Just your ordinary, every day, one-woman lovin', baby-raisin', blue collar, God fearin' man

Every day, baby-raisin', one-woman lovin', blue collar, country and western kinda man

Are you ready for the country?

(Speaking: They put an edge on that one didn't they? They played like they were pissed.)

Those Days Are Gone

length: 3:41

Well, there ain't nobody wants to get stoned here any more
We both walked across Texas, all over the old dance floor

But those days are gone, like a rolling stone
Yeah, they're gone with the wind, they're coming back again
Yo, that's just wrong

Those days are gone, hey, then I moved on
Not even Alan Clow, on the radio
Those Days are gone

I miss the all night, getting right, crank it up, country sound
That honky tonk, and beer joint, roughneck crowd

Those days are gone, like a rolling stone
Oh, they're are gone with the wind, won't be back again
We want some Haggard and drunk

Those days are gone, say that I moved on
Hey, I'm a dinosaur, I want some swinging doors
Those days are gone

(Solo)

(Now, I know that I ain't the only one out here, you know, that feels like me
And if your singing a long to this song, then I guess you agree)

Those days are gone, like a rolling stone
Say they're gone with the wind, they're coming back again
I want some Haggard and drunk

Those days are gone, Yeah, then I've moved on
No David Alan Clow, on the radio
Those days are gone

No David Alan Clow, on the radio
Those days are gone

Dress Like an Icon

length: 4:14

If you're not having any luck with the girls
You need to step into the spotlight world
Watch some movies with Steve McQueen
Get some music by BB King
You got to crank out a brand new plan
'Coz all women like a sharp, dressed man

I'll show you how to get into the game
Step up and make yourself a household name
I've had a lot of practice you see
'Coz everybody damn sure knows me
Make all the money, I've made a tonne
But the most important thing is you better have fun

You gotta dress like an Icon (Dress like an Icon)
Get yourself a step-son
Walk this way like DMC-Run
Play like Robert Johnson
Walk like an Icon
Talk like an Icon
Can you pass the test?
Hell yes! You an Icon

Can I have your autograph please?
Meet and greet and take a picture with me
Be a fashion trender kinda guy
Girl, show your belly button diamond tonight
We'll make them roll the red carpet out
When it's a yes, they gonna yell, and scream and shout

Gotta Dress like an Icon
Style like Nicki Minaj
Wear black like Johnny Cash, son
Have em stacked like Dolly Parton
Yeah, we got it going on, Know you've already won
Posing for the cameras and the press?
Hell yes! You're an Icon

(Solo)

(Hey, Hey, Hey)

You've gotta dress like an Icon
Shine like a beacon
Cool your kicks like Tarzan

Social media makes the best?
Hell yes! I'm an Icon

God & Guns

Just Call Me Hank

length: 3:03

Over the hill, that's one place I won't go
Cause I still sell out everywhere, I don't do many shows
It's going to be loud and proud, and it's going to be real
It's the only way that I know how, cause when I sing I feel

Waylon is there with me, Troy and Ronnie too
God knows I thought I'd never shed the lovesick blues
Thanks to all the ladies that helped me
Make it through the night
Yes I've been blessed and I've been left
Here to sing 'em for you right

Don't call me an icon, I don't care about the hall of fame
Just gonna live my life in my country boy kinda way
Yeah I know that lonesome whipper well, road the panamerican train
My name is Bocephus but I'm really proud
When someone just calls me Hank

Don't call me an icon, I don't care about the hall of fame
I'm just gonna live my life in our southern kinda way
Yeah I know that lonesome whipper well
I road the Pan-American train
My name is Bocephus but I'm really proud
When someone just calls me Hank

Mental Revenge

length: 2:57

[Verse 1]
Well I hope that the friend
You've thrown yourself with get's drunk
And loses his job
And every road you're traveling on
Get's dusty rocky and hard
I couldn't make you love me
You only made me blue
So all in all
If the curtain should fall
I hope that it falls on you

[Chorus]
I'll have sweet
Sweet sweet
Mental revenge
I'll have sweet
Sweet sweet
Mental revenge
Yeah

[Verse 2]
Well I hope that the train from Caribou Maine
Runs over your new love affair
That you walk the floor from door to door
And you pull out that peroxide hair
You never was my woman
Cause you were never true
So all in all
If the curtain should fall
I hope that it falls back on you

[Chorus]
I'll have sweet
Sweet sweet
Mental revenge
I'll have sweet
Sweet sweet
Mental revenge
I'll have sweet
Sweet sweet
Mental revenge
I'll have sweet
Sweet sweet
Mental revenge

Yeah

It's About Time

length: 3:30

[Verse 1]
I’m going back where I made tracks
In my boyhood days on gran-daddy’s land
The family ties that bind
Hope I can still find
My mother joins in the red playback sand
The next stop on my quest
Place I still love the best
Alabama river bank now I see the lights
Although Montgomery town
Let’s put the hammer down
We going down the lost highway tonight, yeah

[Chorus]
It’s about time for some country songs
It’s about time to play some southern rock to the bone
Cause we’ve had enough of this weird pop country sound
On my guitar, brothers and sisters come, and gather around
A country state of mind
We’ll pass a little musky vine wine
Yeah I’m telling you it’s about time (time, it’s about time)

[Verse 2]
I watched Waylon and Merle
They were the kings of the world
Far as I was concerned, and then he changed
Thanks to Jerry Lee
Johnny and Jim, Hank and Miss Audrey
Hey, I’ve done my share of crying
It’s about time

[Chorus]
It’s about time for some country songs
It’s about time to play some southern rock all night long
Cause we’ve had enough of this weird pop country sound
On my guitar, brothers and sisters come, and gather around
A country state of mind (country state of mind)
It’s 1976 in the mind
Hey I’m telling you it’s about time (time, it’s about time)

[Outro]
I pulled a Bobby Mercer on that mother

The Party's On

length: 2:59

[Verse 1]
My rowdy friends all here
Time to get the party started
Gonna have fun so forget about your worries
Lot’s of good looking women on the hunt
Three beers and I think I found me one
Been working all week
Everybody’s been sleeping
Tonight we’re going to party
Like we’re on vacation
Go ahead and do what you want
When you feel this good
You know it can’t be wrong

[Chorus]
The party’s on (party’s on)
The party’s on (party’s on)
The party’s on (party’s on)
We’re starting early and we’re going long
Come on, come on, come on

We got the tailgate down
Got the music turned up
Passing around some powerful stuff
I can see by the look in her eyes
This country boy’s getting lucky tonight

[Chorus]
The party’s on (party’s on)
The party’s on (party’s on)
The party’s on (party’s on)
We’re starting early and we’re going long
So come on, come on, come on

Troy, Alabama on my GPS
Floored with both women
Whoo, they are the best
Apple and Chipotle is coming in sight
Give me two dozen raw
I’m going to need them tonight

[Bridge]
The party’s on (party’s on)
Been working the bone (party’s on)
Feels so good ready to unlax
Fun in the sun, all the sand in the cracks

[Outro]
The party’s on (party’s on)
The party’s on (party’s on)
Come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on
Come on
Let’s party (the party’s on)
Let’s party (the party’s on)
Let’s party (the party’s on)
Party

Wrapped Up, Tangled Up in Jesus (God's Got It)

length: 6:22

[Verse 1]
I went fishing one day (oh, well, well, well)
And I put my hook out in the water(oh, oh,)
And something got a hold to it (oh, yes)
And it tried to get loose (well)
When I pulled it up (oh Lord)
It was a big fish on the hook (oh my, my, my)
He was a-twisting and a-turning (oh)
Trying to get loose (yeah)
But the hook had him down (oooh)
And it couldn’t get loose (oh no)
And I said I wish the Lord (hey I wish the Lord)
Would hook me one day (oh)
Like this hooked fish (well)
He hooked his feeling in me (oh)
And one Friday evening (yeah)
He came into my soul (ooh yeah)
And he hooked me with his spirit (oh Lord)
And ever since that day (ever since, Hmm)
A song came to my mind (oh)
I said it like Jeremiah said (yeah)

But that wasn’t enough (well)
I told my father (good Lord)
And I told my sister too (God forgive) (well Lord)
