I can open doors all by myself
And I'm strong enough to face
This world without anybody's help
Why would I want to
Would you love me like you do
I could go on livin'
Without tastin' your kiss
Get by without this moment
Eight Crazy Hours (Story Of Love)
It was somethin' as simple as makin' the bed
That kicked off the voice inside her head
She was smoothin the sheet with the palm of her hand
When the thought struck home "I don't know who I am"
And she sat cross-legged on the bedroom floor n thought
There's are three people here in this house that don't need me anymore
And she cried like a baby, in a pile of dirty clothes
Oh She might be more carefree
She might be more sexy
She might be more friendly more
I'll Have What She's Havin'
No, I don't want no 'Jack n Coke'
Please sit me where there ain't no smoke
Don't want nothin' cloudin' up my eyes
But you see that girl all over there
Actin' like she's on thin air
There got to be a secret to her smile
Well, I think that I just found him
And he's twirlin' her around
I'd like to place my order
You might want to write this down
I Want A Cowboy
Everybody told me he was a dream
Like he just stepped right off the silver screen
Said he that would sweep me off of my feet
Oh but I'm still standin', he didn't do it for me
Cuz I don't go for all that "wining n dining"
With that Ray-Ban, fake tan... give him mine
I want a down-home, 'up with the sunrise' man
A pickup truck drivin', bullridin', strong steady hand
Maggie Creek Road
Mama stood on the front porch wringin' her hands
Watched the tail lights fadin' on his black trans-am
With her precious little baby takin' off inside
Starin' at him with stars in her eyes
She tried to tell her but the girl might as well of been deaf
She wasn't goin' to listen to a word she said
Don't go down Maggie Creek Road
With a boy, lookin' like that
He'll tell you things that you want to hear
Nothing To Lose
Well, I'm sittin' on a bus
Rollin' down thru Georgia
I don't know where I'm goin'
And I don't care what's new
I got nothin' to lose
Well I've had no sleep
Goin' on three days
And is this old paper bag
Somewhere near in luggage?
I always knew this day would come
The world is just too small to keep
Our paths from crossing
Here we are, just look at us
I'd always wondered what I'd say
Would I tell you?
"Life is great n gettin' better all the time"
Were you lookin?
Would I be too proud to show my heart
Well to tell the truth, it's not that hard
She saw it in the window,
Just a 'callin' out her name
She mowed the grass, took out the trash
And she saved, saved, saved
Bought it on Monday,
Had a gig on Friday night
In the garage, in front of her mom,
She came alive
She likes to play, she loves to rock
She's Turning 50 Today
Her husband left on Saturday
For a woman that was half her age
Sunday she just stayed in bed
With the covers pulled over her head
But on Monday mornin' she woke up
And loaded up her pickup truck
Took one last look at her old life
Then hit the gas n said "goodbye"
In her faded jeans
And her old baseball cap
