    Texas Lullaby

    Texas Lullaby
    (Aaron Watson)

    He was just eighteen, full of fire and gasoline
    He was lean and mean and they called him Texas
    He went off to war, to a far and distant shore
    Heíd never left his home before, he was from Texas

    As they stormed that beach one foggy summer day
    He said if I donít make it back promise me one thing

    Chorus:††††††††††† Take me home if I die when Iím gone donít you cry
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Find some shade right beside a live oak tree
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Sing those old songs of faith, Iíll Fly Away, Amazing Grace
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† May you find comfort knowing that my soul found peace
    And you can bury me beneath the deep blue skies of Texas

    Well she was just eighteen prettiest thing heíd ever seen
    Like a real life beauty queen and someday sheíd be his wife
    But for the next four years she fought back her tears
    While he fought back his fears fighting for his life
    And in his darkest hours her love would bring him light
    He would read her letters and he would pray at night

    Chorus:††††††††††† Take me home if I die when Iím gone donít you cry
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Find some shade right beside a live oak tree
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Sing those old songs of faith, Iíll Fly Away, Amazing Grace
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† May you find comfort knowing that my soul found peace
    And you can bury me beneath the deep blue skies of Texas

    He always said the real heroes never made it back home
    And though the war was long over you know for him it still lived on
    And it still lives on

    When he was eighty-three still full of fire and gasoline
    He was still lean and mean and they still called him Texas
    And on the day he died she was right there by his side
    She held his hand as she softly sang his lullaby

    Chorus:††††††††††† Take me home if I die when Iím gone donít you cry
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Find some shade right beside a live oak tree
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Sing those old songs of faith, Iíll Fly Away, Amazing Grace
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† May you find comfort knowing that my soul found peace
    And you can bury me
    You can bury me
    You can bury me beneath the deep blue skies of Texas

    Take You Home Tonight

    Take You Home Tonight
    (Aaron Watson)

    No there ain’t nothing like a summer on a Saturday night
    When love is in the air and life is right
    Put on your dancing boots, slip your red dress on
    And I’ll pour the wine and play your favorite song
    I wanna swing you around the kitchen floor
    And leave a trail of clothes all the way through the bedroom door
    I’d turn out the porch light, I wanna take you home tonight

    Chorus:††††††††††† I wanna feel your heartbeat next to mine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† I wanna feel your desire then take you higher
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Than those stars up in the moonlight sky
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We’re gonna fly
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We’re gonna fly
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† I don’t wanna leave this house I wanna take you home
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Don’t wanna leave this house I wanna take you home tonight

    No there ain’t nothing like a Sunday morning sunrise
    When you wake me with your sweet surprise
    There’s no kids around, it’s been a while
    Since I’ve seen that come and get me smile
    No we don’t have to go to Mexico
    To find some getaway somewhere along the coast
    Cause right here is just right, I’m gonna take you home tonight

    Chorus:††††††††††† I wanna feel your heartbeat next to mine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† I wanna feel your desire then take you higher
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Than those stars up in the moonlight sky
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We’re gonna fly
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We’re gonna fly
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† I don’t wanna leave this house I wanna take you home
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Don’t wanna leave this house I wanna take you home tonight

    Chorus:††††††††††† I wanna feel your heartbeat next to mine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† I wanna feel your desire then take you higher
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Than those stars up in the moonlight sky
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We’re gonna fly

    These Old Boots Have Roots

    These Old Boots Have Roots
    (Aaron Watson)

    Yeah these old boots have roots just like my last name
    I swear I’ll never bring it shame
    Yeah these old boots have roots when the winds are bitter cold
    I know this love of ours will hold, these old boots have roots

    Chorus:††††††††††† So I’ll march to the beat of my heart pounding like a drum
    Let em run me down but I’ll stand my ground, no I won’t forsake or forget where I come from
    I swear I’ll never break your heart, only want to make you smile
    These old boots want nothing more than to walk you down the aisle
    These old boots have roots

    Yeah these old boots have roots, they toe the mark and walk the line
    Girl only you can make them shine
    Yeah these old boots have roots, they’re tested, tried and true
    Walking side by side by you, these old boots have roots

    Chorus:††††††††††† So I’ll march to the beat of my heart pounding like a drum
    Let em run me down but I’ll stand my ground, no I won’t forsake or forget where I come from
    I swear I’ll never break your heart, only want to make you smile
    These old boots want nothing more than to walk you down the aisle
    These old boots have roots

    Yeah these old boots have roots and they haul a heavy load
    Down a long and winding road
    Yeah these old boots have roots strong as a live oak tree
    Someday you can bury me in these old boots

    Chorus:††††††††††† So I’ll march to the beat of my heart pounding like a drum
    Let em run me down but I’ll stand my ground, no I won’t forsake or forget where I come from
    I swear I’ll never break your heart, only want to make you smile
    These old boots want nothing more than to walk you down the aisle

    Chorus: †††††††††† I’ll never bend for a trend God knows I’ll never trade em in
    For some shallow hearted soul bouncing back and forth again
    Yeah these old boots have roots
    Yeah these old boots have roots
    Baby these old boots have roots

    Be My Girl

    Be My Girl
    (Aaron Watson)

    You know love shouldn’t be so complicated
    We both know there’s only two sides to a wall
    But pride can be ten foot thick and twenty foot high
    I think it’s time that we bring in that wrecking ball

    Chorus:††††††††††† I’ve got a blanket and a bottle of wine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Let’s strip it down and see what we might find
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh my my be my girl tonight
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† I’ve got a heartache and you’ve got yours
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Let it all fall on our bedroom floor
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh my my be my girl tonight

    And some say love is way overrated
    But I wonder did they think that way back when
    I remember our first night we held on tight
    The world was sweet and simple, let’s go back there again

    Chorus:††††††††††† I’ve got a blanket and a bottle of wine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Let’s strip it down and see what we might find
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh my my be my girl tonight
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† I’ve got a heartache and you’ve got yours
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Let it all fall on our bedroom floor
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh my my be my girl tonight

    No we’re not gonna sleep til we get this right
    We can straighten those picture frames come morning light
    Be my girl tonight

    Chorus:††††††††††† I’ve got a blanket and a bottle of wine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Let’s strip it down and see what we might find
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh my my be my girl tonight
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† I’ve got a heartache and you’ve got yours
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Let it all fall on our bedroom floor
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh my my be my girl tonight
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh my my be my girl tonight
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh my my won’t you be my girl
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh my my be my girl

    They Don't Make Em Like They Used To

    They Don’t Make Em Like They Used To
    (Aaron Watson)

    Bluebonnets down a long stretch of hill country highway
    Windows down, radio up, riding shotgun next to you
    You were smoking camel lights behind the wheel I can still hear you say
    Three hundred thousand miles you can’t beat an ol beat up Chevrolet

    Well Granny’s in the kitchen smell of fried chicken frying
    She’s cooking in her apron singing along with Patsy Cline
    Playing ball in the front yard little sister runs in crying
    She climbs up in her arms I hear her laughing through the old screen door

    Chorus:††††††††††† They don’t make em like they used to
    They don’t make em like they used to
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† They don’t make em like you anymore
    They don’t make em like they used to
    They don’t make em like they used to
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† They don’t make em like you anymore

    Well the days have changed since the golden days in some ways we’ve come so far
    But I never dreamed we’d trade the American dream for a fancy foreign car
    Have we sold our souls to save a buck traded hard work for dumb luck
    And those old country songs are sounding better than ever before

    Chorus:††††††††††† They don’t make em like they used to
    They don’t make em like they used to
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† They don’t make em like you anymore
    No they don’t make em like they used to
    They don’t make em like they used to
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† They don’t make em like you anymore

    So you live the kind of life so long after you’re long gone
    You’ll always be there in their hearts and your love light will shine on
    And someday they’ll sit around down at John T’s Country Store
    They’ll be laughing over stories you told a thousand times before saying
    They don’t make em like you anymore
    They don’t make like you anymore

    Chorus:††††††††††† They don’t make em like they used to
    They don’t make em like they used to
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† They don’t make em like you anymore
    They don’t make em like they used to
    They don’t make em like they used to
    They don’t make em like you anymore

     

    Well no news is good news tell me whose news really tells the truth
    The death toll rises high as gas prices shoot straight through the roof
    Meanwhile politicians preach while some preachers politic
    What we need is lots of love, yeah lots of love might do the trick

    Instead we criticize, we glamorize who’s right or wrong, who’s left and right
    Missing out on so many beautiful colors fighting over what’s black and white
    We’ve gotta forgive gotta learn to live together make the world a better place
    And Just maybe someday somebody somewhere will look back on today
    And look back on us and say

    Chorus:††††††††††† They don’t make em like they used to
    They don’t make em like they used to
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† They don’t make em like you anymore

    Vaquero

    Vaquero
    (Aaron Watson)

    This old Mexican cowboy at the bar looked a hundred years old
    He had a million-dollar smile and his weathered brown skin shimmered like California gold
    He said ‘I’m a little short on cash but I’m long on life
    For a shot of tequila I’ll give you some dang good advice’

     

    Chorus:††††††††††† He said don’t leave your beer in the hot Texas Sun
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Don’t argue with a woman while she’s holding a gun
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Never cheat when it comes to love or dominoes
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Vaya con dios said the old vaquero
    †††††††††††††††††††††††
    Well my heart sank the more he drank, the more he poured out his misery
    How he lost her after 47 years and his tears started flowing like the Rio Grande
    He started speaking in Spanish then he kissed his rosary
    Said ‘Por siempre mi amor here’s one more to her memory’

    Chorus:††††††††††† He said don’t live your life like a sad country song
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† A fool on a stool still a fool right or wrong
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Pride is a bandito breaking hearts as he goes
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Vaya con dios said the old vaquero

    I walked over to the corner, turned the old jukebox on
    And when I turned back around like a ghost he was gone
    So I paid his tab called a cab and called it a night and came straight home to you
    As we laid there in bed I told you all the things he said we laughed we cried and I held you the whole night through
    You know I think of him often out there all alone
    Maybe he was an angel or just and old man from San Antone

    Chorus:††††††††††† He said don’t leave your beer in the hot Texas Sun
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Don’t argue with a woman while she’s holding a gun
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Never cheat when it comes to love or dominoes
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Vaya con dios

    Chorus:††††††††††† He said don’t live your life like a sad country song
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† A fool on a stool still a fool right or wrong
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Pride is a bandito breaking hearts as he goes
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Vaya con dios he said vaya con dios

    Outta Style

    Outta Style
    (Aaron Watson)

    If a melody is like a memory
    You’re a long hot summer night symphony
    Blaring on the speakers of my Monte Carlo
    Down FM 109 on my FM radio
    We could take it slow put it on cruise control
    You know it’s been a while

    Chorus:††††††††††† We’re never going outta style I was thinking
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† While the sun is sinking low we could go all night
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Never going outta style in my Chevy
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Parking at the levy getting hot and heavy after all this time
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† The trends will come and go, the winds of change will blow
    ††††††††††† ††††††††††† The way we love is never going outta style

    Singing “Rebel Rebel” at the top of our lungs
    Out of town windows down playing those dashboard drums
    Everybody said you’d never make it too far
    With some poor boy playing on some pawn shop guitar
    You know my crazy dreams were busting at the seams
    Just like these ol boots and jeans

    Chorus:††††††††††† We’re never going outta style I was thinking
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† While the sun is sinking low we could go all night
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Never going outta style in my Chevy
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Parking at the levy getting hot and heavy after all this time
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† The trends will come and go, the winds of change will blow
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† The way we love is never going
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Never going outta style
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We’re never going outta style

    I’ll pop my collar do my best James Dean
    We’ll hit the road like a Steve McQueen movie scene
    Show me your million dollar Marilyn smile
    And I’ll show you a love love love

    Chorus:††††††††††† That’s never going outta style I was thinking
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† While the sun is sinking low we could go all night
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Never going outta style in my Chevy
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Parking at the levy getting hot and heavy after all this time
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† The trends will come and go the winds of change will blow
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† The way we love is never going outta style
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We could take it slow put it on cruise control
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† The way we love is never going outta style

    Run Wild Horses

    Run Wild Horses
    (Aaron Watson)

    Somewhere on a nowhere road I hear you whisper this
    Slow that Mustang down, come on and steal my kiss
    Girl I’ve got you in my arms, coming all undone
    No fences in your heart run wild horses

    Chorus:††††††††††† Run free as the wind my passion on your skin
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Your lips on mine run wild horses
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Run out of control deep down in your soul
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We become one, run wild horses run

    Out there on that sunset strip those stars come out at night
    But they don’t shine like you, you’ve got your own spot light
    Girl I want to take you home, wanna get you all alone
    Unleash this love of mine run wild horses

    Chorus:††††††††††† Run free as the wind my passion on your skin
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Your lips on mine run wild horses

    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We become one, run wild horses run
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Run wild horses run

    So let’s break these chains and go down like the setting sun
    No love don’t need these reigns no we can’t be bound can’t tie us down run wild horses

    Chorus:††††††††††† Run free as the wind my passion on your skin
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Your lips on mine run wild horses
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Run out of control deep down in your soul
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We become one, run wild horses run

    Chorus:††††††††††† Run free as the wind my passion on your skin
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Your lips on mine run wild horses
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Run out of control deep down in your soul
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We become one, run wild horses run
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Run wild horses run

    Clear Isabel

    Clear Isabel
    (Aaron Watson)

    Isabel and her brown skin shined like a sapphire in the summer sun
    The pride and joy of a Mexican lawman who lived by the gun
    He got cross ways with the cartel they shot down his only son Jose
    So in fear of his daughter’s life he packed their bags and late one night she heard him say

    Chorus:††††††††††† I hear the grass is greener just beyond that Laredo border line
    They say freedom is much sweeter than sweet blood red sangria wine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† South Texas looks like heaven when you’re down here in this living hell
    So come on let’s cross that Rio, the coast is clear Isabel
    The coast is clear Isabel

    They came across our homestead tired and hungry, cold and moving slow
    We had fence to build a warm place to stay and they had nowhere to go
    So I worked cattle with her father we were stretching wire and driving post all day
    While Isabel worked with my mother and late at night I held her tight and she’d take my breath away

    Chorus:††††††††††† I hear the grass is greener just beyond that Laredo border line
    They say Nfreedom is much sweeter than sweet blood red sangria wine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† South Texas looks like heaven when you’re down here in this living hell
    So come on let’s cross that Rio, the coast is clear Isabel
    The coast is clear Isabel

    The sheriff came across her father they treated him like an outlaw on the run
    And Isabel now wears my diamond and that little boy she holds is my son
    We got a green card for her father Mariano but it came two years too late
    We got word that he’d been gunned down in a border town shot in the back the last thing they heard him say

    Chorus:††††††††††† I hear the grass is greener just beyond that Laredo border line
    And they say that freedom is much sweeter than sweet blood red sangria wine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† South Texas looks like heaven when you’re down here in this living hell
    So come on let’s cross that Rio, the coast is clear Isabel
    The coast is clear Isabel
    The coast is clear Isabel
    Clear Isabel
    Clear Isabel

    Big Love In A Small Town

    Big Love In A Small Town
    (Aaron Watson, Leslie Satcher)

    It’s a one stop light red light don’t diss it
    And don’t blink if you do you might miss it
    It don’t look like much I know, but this place has heart and soul

    It’s where love was born and loved ones are buried
    A little church where we got married
    Living life like a black and white movie, after all this time you still move me
    Years and years of tears and smiles good memories go for miles

    Chorus:††††††††††† Yeah I love this town, no there ain’t a road we ain’t been down
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Yeah I’m still here and your still here beside me riding around
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Girl just like an old love song playing on and on and on and on
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We’ll keep on going strong, tune out the world when it goes wrong
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Don’t you know that everybody dreams about what we’ve found
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† A big love in a small town

    It’s a mom and pop corner shop five and dimer
    Where granddaddy bought my new Old Timer
    A six pack and a pack of smokes, peanut patties and cherry cokes
    They roll up those sidewalks at night, but that’s alright

    Chorus:††††††††††† Yeah I love this town, no there ain’t a road we ain’t been down
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Yeah I’m still here and your still here beside me riding around
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Girl just like an old love song playing on and on and on and on
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We’ll keep on going strong, tune out the world when it goes wrong
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Don’t you know that everybody dreams about what we’ve found
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† A big love in a small town

    Raising crops and raising kids like our folks and their parents did
    Some say we’re behind the times like that’s a bad thing, but baby that’s a good thing

    Chorus:††††††††††† Yeah I love this town, no there ain’t a road we ain’t been down
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Yeah I’m still here and your still here beside me riding around
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Girl just like an old love song playing on and on and on and on
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We’ll keep on going strong, tune out the world when it goes wrong
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Don’t you know that everybody dreams about what we’ve found
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Don’t you know that everybody dreams about what we’ve found
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† A big love in a small town
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† A big love in a small town
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† A big love in a small town
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We got a big love, a big love
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† We got a big love, a big love
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† A big love in a small town

    One Two Step At A Time

    One Two Step At A Time
    (Aaron Watson, Kendell Marvel)

    She likes swinging doors old sawdust floors
    A steal your heart away modern day Bobby McGee
    She can sing along to every Guy Clark Song
    No she don’t dance with cowboys wearing skinny jeans

    Chorus:††††††††††† She likes pearl in a can, a honky tonk band
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† She ain’t the kind that you can wine and dine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh the only way to waltz away with her heart is one two step at a time

    She likes neon lights those Lone Star nights
    Those home made tamales down at John T’s Store
    Like the red headed stranger on her record player
    No they don’t make em like her anymore

    Chorus:††††††††††† She likes pearl in a can, a honky tonk band
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† She ain’t the kind that you can wine and dine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh the only way to waltz away with her heart is one two step at a time

    Chorus:††††††††††† She likes pearl in a can, a honky tonk band
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† She ain’t the kind that you can wine and dine
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Oh the only way to waltz away with her heart
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Yes the only way to waltz away with her heart
    I’m saying the only way to waltz away with her heart is one two step at a time

    You better give her a whirl cause she ain’t a Heineken kind of girl
    One two step at a time
    One two step at a time
    One two step at a time
    One two step at a time
    One two step at a time

    Amen Amigo

    Amen Amigo
    (Aaron Watson, Tim James, Mac McAnally)

    We crossed that border every Friday night
    We sat beneath that ol Dos Equis neon light
    That stucco wall has stories we’ll never tell
    Jimmy spent three days in that ol Mexican jail

    The boys of summer disappeared that fall
    As the years flew by we grew up after all
    Real life is running and gunning to no end
    It’s time we take it on back, way back to way back when

    Chorus:††††††††††† Can I get an amen amigo hey why don’t we go
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Check out the world somewhere south of the Rio
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Bring the girls have a ball up all night no last call
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Then sleep in until ten wake up and do it all again
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Good friends are good for the soul can I get an amen amigo

    I miss ol Ma Crosby’s Restaurant and Bar
    I miss the queso and the guaco and those gut string guitars
    It’s time we load that hitch, it’s time we ditch this town
    Set sail before the sun goes down

    Chorus:††††††††††† Can I get an amen amigo hey why don’t we go
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Check out the world somewhere south of the Rio
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Bring the girls have a ball up all night no last call
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Then sleep in until ten wake up and do it all again
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Good friends are good for the soul can I get an amen amigo

    There’s nowhere to float this boat in this sea of concrete
    I miss those cheap sunshades I miss those flip flop feet
    I wanna go back there, I wanna cast that reel
    Wanna hear my brown eyed girl sing Margaritaville

    Chorus:††††††††††† Can I get an amen amigo hey why don’t we go
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Check out the world somewhere south of the Rio
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Bring the girls have a ball up all night no last call
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Then sleep in until ten wake up and do it all again
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Good friends are good for the soul

    Chorus:††††††††††† Can I get an amen amigo hey why don’t we go
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Check out the world somewhere south of the Rio
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Bring the girls have a ball up all night no last call
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Then sleep in until ten wake up and do it all again
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Good friends are good for the soul
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† I’m saying good friends are good for the soul
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Let me tell you good friends are good for the soul
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Can I get an amen amigo

    The Arrow

    The Arrow
    (Aaron Watson)

    I’ve been heartbroke and broke down hard up and hard fought
    Misunderstood misguided and I’ve missed by a long shot
    And I understand first hand I’ve been where you’ve been
    Don’t you forget every sunset will become a sunrise soon again

    So be bold and be brave and beware of those schemes
    Stay razor sharp, find your mark as you go chase your dreams
    Watch out for those dangers always dancing in the dark
    When the shadows of the night shoot out the lights I know you’ll be the spark

    Chorus:††††††††††† So promise me before you go follow your arrow
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† You will pray to never stray from straight and narrow
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Be steadfast and steady, always be ready, aim for the stars in the sky
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Take heart, pull it back and let it fly

    Good things come to those who pray so don’t you chalk it up to chance
    And never let your arrow be led by arrogance
    Fill your quiver full of courage show this world your heaven sent
    Keep a good head on your shoulders every arrow needs a fine piece of flint

    Chorus:††††††††††† So promise me before you go follow your arrow
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† You will pray to never stray from straight and narrow
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Be steadfast and steady, always be ready, aim for the stars in the sky
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Take heart, pull it back

    And let it fly on the wings of an angel, let it fly with the grace of a dove
    Through the lightning and thunder never aimlessly wonder
    Let it fly with kindness and love
    Let it fly with kindness and love
    Let it fly let it fly

    Chorus:††††††††††† Promise me before you go follow your arrow
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† You will pray to never stray from straight and narrow
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Be steadfast and steady, always be ready, aim for the stars in the sky
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Take heart, pull it back and

    Chorus:††††††††††† Promise me before you go follow your arrow
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† You will pray to never stray from straight and narrow
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Be steadfast and steady, always be ready, aim for the stars in the sky
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Take heart, pull it back and let it fly

    So stand firm in your faith as you raise up your bow
    Fear not the dragon you are the arrow

    Rolling Stone

    Rolling Stone
    (Aaron Watson, Heather Morgan, Marshall Altman)

    I’m muddy boots outside your door
    I’m old blue jeans on your bedroom floor
    I might hang my hat and hang around for a little while
    You’re all alone with no one to hold
    But that ring you wear is solid gold
    Ever since the day I walked you down the aisle

    I’m driftwood I’m a tumbleweed
    I ride the wind like a wildwood seed
    Beneath a midnight moon I think of us
    A heart like yours is hard to find
    You’re always gentle on my mind
    But if these wheels don’t turn they’ll start to rust

    Chorus:††††††††††† While I’m rockin’ and a rollin’ like a rolling stone
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† On a big rig rollin’ down a long and lonely road
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Up and under highways, high wires and high line poles
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† You’re my rock and I’m your rolling stone

    It’s a brand new song same ol verse
    This black top blessing is a curse
    But you know I’ve come too far to turn back now
    Week after week mile after mile
    You save me with your sacred smile
    And you love me still but lord I don’t know how

    Chorus:††††††††††† While I’m rockin’ and a rollin’ like a rolling stone
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† On a big rig rollin’ down a long and lonely road
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Up and under highways, high wires and high line poles
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† You’re my rock and I’m your rolling stone

    Chorus:††††††††††† While I’m rockin’ and a rollin’ like a rolling stone
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† On a big rig rollin’ down a long and lonely road
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Up and under highways, high wires and high line poles
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† You’re my rock and I’m your rolling stone
    ††††††††††††††††††††††† Baby you’re my rock and I’m your rolling stone

     

    You know I’d rather be holding you than holding this old guitar
    I play your heart like a sad song while I chase this distant star
    You know my heart’s always at home and this highway’s always blue
    Over my endless love affair with this old guitar and you
    †††††††††††††††††††††††
    You know I’d rather be holding you than holding this old guitar
    I play your heart like a sad song while I chase this distant star
    You know my heart’s always at home and this highway’s always blue
    Over my endless love affair with this old guitar and you
    And you
    And you
    And you
