    Heyday Tonight

    I said hey sugar mama

    CHORUS

    Iím a gonna wanna gotta have a heyday tonight
    So letís have a ball at the ole dance hall and later on we just might
    Go make a little love beneath the moon above until the morniní light
    Sugar mama Iím a gonna wanna gotta have a heyday tonight

    Well Iíve been pushed down kicked around
    All over town all week
    Burniní both ends from dusk til dawn tryiní to make ends meet
    Tell me why, Lord tell me why nice guys end up last in line
    Thereís only one thing on Godís green earth to get this cruel world off my mind

    CHORUS

    Iíd say Monday is the worst day for those workiní man blues
    And Tuesday and Wednesdayís more the same ole bad news
    Well Thursdayís ok and Fridayís gettingí brighter
    When the whistle blows at 5:00 Iím cominí home to pull an all-nighter

    CHORUS

    Iím a gonna wanna gotta have a heyday tonight
    So kick off your shoes, forget about your blues and let your troubles take flight
    Well you and me hun weíll have a little fun until the morniní light
    Iím a gonna wanna gotta have a heyday tonight

    Iím a gonna wanna gotta have a heyday tonight
    So letís make a little love beneath the moon above in the glow of a kerosene light
    Weíll be turniní on and on til the break of dawn, til we turn it on just right
    Sugar mama Iím a gonna wanna gotta have a heyday tonight

    Iím a gonna wanna gotta have a heyday tonight

    Good Thing Going

    • Lyrics
    Good Thing Going

    For the life of me will her memory keep on keepin' me awakeí
    This empty pillow by my head is proof you sleep in the bed that you make
    Just like a fool I did nothin', nothin' short of helpin' her pack
    Wish I could find a way, find the words to say
    To bring my baby back

    CHORUS
    I've got a good thing goin', and she ain't slowin' down
    A good thing goin', showin' no sign of turnin' around
    If I could go back, somehow backtrack
    I'd undo all I did wrong, but I've got a bad feelin' my good thing goin' is a good thing gone

    Thought she'd at least call to say that she was ok
    While she left me walkin' the floor
    Maybe she was long gone long before she ever set foot out that door
    I guess over time the love in her heart was overshadowed by her heartaches
    She didn't scream or shout, she had it all mapped out, and she never even tapped the brakes

    CHORUS

    There goes my life down that highway
    All of my dreams slippin' further away from this broken home
    I've gotta put the pieces all back together

    CHORUS

    I've got a good thing goin'
    I've got a good thing goin'

    In Harm's Way

    • Lyrics

    In Harmís Way

    Like that old Titanic
    Running full steam ahead
    You fogged up my mind
    With love words you said
    I could not see the danger
    I got myself in
    Till my ship was sinking
    And I couldnít swim


    CHORUS:

    I didn't know my heart
    Was in harmís way
    I couldnít see the truth
    Till it was in my face
    If Iíd seen it coming
    I could have turned away
    I didnít know my heart
    Was in harmís way

    Now the door went under
    In an ocean of regret
    With no hope of rescue
    From love I canít forget
    I never knew just what hit me
    To far gone to say
    I never knew my heart
    Was in harmís way

    CHORUS

    3rd Gear & 17

    • iTunes
    • Lyrics

    3rd Gear & 17

    I held the keys to that old Chevrolet, and you held the keys to my heart
    Iíd throw a fit hit the dash, get out and kick the tire when that old piece of junk wouldnít start
    Itíd be smokiní good Iíd slam down the hood, just to see you there laughing at me
    On the other side of a dirty windshield, lookiní as pretty as you could be

    CHORUS

    We sure saw a lot of miles, never even crossed that county line
    I would have bet the farm, gave my right arm, so youíd always be mine
    Yet weíd crash and burn or make a wrong turn, or run out of gasoline
    I lost you around 3rd gear & 17

    In the blink of an eye high school flew by, you went your way and I went mine
    But we swore weíd make it, our love could take it 400 miles could stand the test of time
    I left that fall to play college ball, but my dreams would all come to an end
    Cause you know the big leagues never called me and you went and fell in love with him

    CHORUS

    Memories flashed through my mind like old faded photographs
    I still think about you and that red Malibu, and I just canít help but laugh

    CHORUS

    Love broke down, around 3rd gear & 17
    I lost you around 3rd gear & 17

    Unbelievably Beautiful

    • iTunes
    • Lyrics

    Unbelievably Beautiful

    Whenever she walks flowers grow in her footsteps
    Whenever she talks all the birds hush their singing
    The heart of a saint and the face of an angel
    Absolutely unbelievably beautiful

    And when this cruel world's been gettin' me down
    She'll take my frown and she'll turn it back around
    Like a clown, she'll crack a joke
    Acting crazy as a fool
    Absolutely unbelievably beautiful

    CHORUS

    It'd be a big old fat lie, if I said I
    Wasn't turned on just by her looks alone
    She's so much more, so much more than meets the eye
    She's an angel on loan from up above

    And when I come home and the day is sinkiní down
    She'll set the mood and put some soft slow music on
    And all 7 wonders ain't half as wonderful
    Never ceases to amaze me
    The epitome of what love should be
    Absolutely unbelievably beautiful

    Haunted House

    • iTunes
    • Lyrics

    Haunted House

    Sometimes I hear a woman cryiní and a man sayiní nothin at all
    Often I hear children laughiní and footsteps walkin down the hall
    There's a ghost for every memory always remindiní me that I was wrong
    And since her leaviní I've been sleepiní, leaviní all of the lights on

    CHORUS

    What was once a happy home feels more like a haunted house
    Haunted by the sounds of broken hearts rattliní off the chain of broken vows
    It sends a chill through my bones, it's got me scared as a mouse
    Now empty and alone what was once a happy home feels more like a haunted house

    There's no place to run and hide, I swear she's everywhere I go
    In every room I smell her perfume, I know she's not here but I'm not alone

    CHORUS

    It sends a chill through my bones, it's got me scared as a mouse
    Now empty and alone what was once a happy home feels more like a haunted house

    • Lyrics

    Iím A Memory

    Iím a game that you used to play
    And Iím a plan that you didnít lay so well
    Iím a fire that burns in your mind
    Close your eyes Iím a memory

    Iím a love that you bought for a song
    And Iím a voice on a green telephone
    And Iím a day that lasted so long

    Close your eyes Iím a memory

    Iím a dream that comes in the night
    And Iím a face that fades with the light
    And Iím a tear that falls out of sight

    Close your eyes Iím a memory

    San Angelo

    • Lyrics

    San Angelo

    Weíd walk up and down the Concho River
    Weíd find a soft place and watch the sun go down
    So was it me or was it what I could not give her
    She left me shattered, my world scattered all around

    CHORUS

    And she said time would heal my broken heart
    And Iíd find a true companion for my soul
    You know she was right, we were wrong
    Nothing more than a pretty song about a boy
    Who loved a girl from San Angelo

    When Iíd close my eyes I could hear her singing
    In the chapel where she said weíd wed some day
    It rattled me so to hear those old church bells ringing
    Knowing well enough we never loved that way

    CHORUS

    Looking back it was a blessing that you broke my heart in two
    Cause if Iíd have never lost her, honey Iíd have never found you

    Except For Jessie

    Well before she came along he was lonesome ornery and mean
    It was his way or the high way
    But she had a way that heíd never seen
    Heíd been liviní hard and fast
    All his takiní was takiní its toll
    And it took a good hearted, hard headed angel
    To help him gain control

    CHORUS

    He wore his own kind of hat
    And for that folks called him an outlaw
    Well some even cussed his name
    Cause they couldnít see the same man she saw
    He strummed the beat of a different drum
    And his hair was always long and messy, yes it was
    And he said he wouldnít change for no one
    Except for Jessie


    Well she never tried to change him
    But she loved him and gave him a son
    And that ainít easy with a honky tonkin man
    Makin music on the run
    And Lord knows she was a good wife
    Always good at findiní ways to right his wrongs
    She was the love of his life, the inspiration for his song

    • Lyrics

    Blame It On Me

    You're standing there, that look in your eye
    You're looking for good ways to tell my good-bye
    Something 'bout people, how they never know
    They're loving somebody, then lettin' them go
    You're looking for reasons but there ain't no need
    You can blame it on me

    CHORUS:
    Blame it on me, I was the one
    I had no right to turn it all wrong
    I held you too close, I couldn't let go
    Can't lose your cool these days I know
    I'll go on home and you can feel free
    To blame it on me

    I am too rough, I work too hard
    I got no cool friends, I drive an old car
    I'm not the picture of any man's dream
    Handful of bluebonnets, boots and old jeans
    I was a fool to think it could be
    So blame it on me

    CHORUS

    When you start looking for ways out of love
    Then I've been making mistakes by the dozen
    So if you want to leave
    You can blame it on me

    I held you too close, couldn't let go
    Can't lose your cool these days I know
    So I'll go on home and you can feel free
    To blame it on me
    Blame it on me
    Blame it on me

    All American Country Girl

    • Lyrics

    All American Country Girl

    If you'd had made a tag on the back
    Of those designer jeans she's wearin'
    It's some big name brand you can't buy at a Wal-Mart
    And you from what she's got on
    From her Versace to her Louis Vuitton
    You wouldn't think she'd know every Merle Haggard song by heart

    CHORUS

    But when it comes down to the heart of the situation
    She's a little rockin' honky tonkin' modern day Minnie Pearl
    I should know, I've been all across this great nation
    Oh there ain't no doubt, she's an All American country girl

    Well she comes pullin' up next to you at a red light
    In some high-fallutiní fancy foreign car
    Rich lady shades and a little dog in the window
    You'd never know she was born and raised right down on her granddaddyís farm

    CHORUS

    There's somethin' bout her slow southern twang
    It sweet talks me into anything
    Her smile, her wink, and her pretty please
    Brings any country boy down to his knees

    True Love Ways

    Just you know why
    Why you and I
    Will by and by
    Know true love ways

    Sometimes we'll sigh
    Sometimes we'll cry
    But you'll know why
    Just you and I
    Know true love ways

    Throughout the days
    Those true love ways
    Will bring us joys to share
    With those who really care

    Sometimes we'll sigh
    Sometimes we'll cry
    But you'll know why
    Just you and I
    Know true love ways

    Nobody's Crying But The Baby

    • iTunes
    • Lyrics

    Nobodyís Crying But The Baby

    With Her Little One In One Arm
    And The Laundry In The Other
    She Could Sure Use A Helping Hand
    But Thatís Just The Life Of A Single Mother

    Somebody's Calling On The Phone
    Somebody's Knocking At The Door
    She Forgets And Burns The Dinner
    Throws It Across The Kitchen Floor
    And For A Moment She Wants To Give Up And Break Down

    CHORUS

    But Nobody's Crying But The Baby
    She Ain't Far From Going Crazy
    And There Are Times She Wonders How She's Going To Make It
    But She's Got To Be Strong Enough For Two
    She's Gotta Do What He Wouldn't Do
    No Time For Tears Around Here
    Nobody's Crying But The Baby

    And When The Day Is Done
    She'll Tuck Her Angel In
    She'll Turn Out The Lights And Start Missing Him Again
    Her Mascara Slowly Runs Down Her Face

    CHORUS

    But The Baby
