    • Lyrics
    Tulsa

    When I left Tulsa she was still an innocent lady
    Lord only knows why she ever loved a guy like you
    She called me crying and she said she was having your baby
    You turned your back on her and broke her heart in two, and I swore Iíd get you

    For what you're putting her through, and the only reason I ain't got you
    She begged me not to, says she loves you

    CHORUS

    But don't let the sun set on you in Tulsa
    Don't let the sun set on you in Tulsa
    Now if the sun goes down on you and if you're still here well you're going down too
    Don't let the sun set on you in Tulsa

    Sheís the only thing Iíve ever really cared for
    No she don't deserve this kind of shame
    She carries a burden around that you know you're to blame for
    You just laughed and said they ainít getting your name, now youíre gonna pay

    For what you're putting her through and the only reason I ain't got you
    She begged me not to, says she loves you but I ainít through with you yet

    CHORUS

    Whiskey On The Fire

    And heíll start drinking then heíll start thinking about her again, again and again
    He mustíve bribed the jukebox cause those olí sad songs just wonít end, they just wonít end
    His olí broken heart still burns with desire
    Cause you canít put out an old flame by pouring whiskey on the fire

    CHORUS

    And tonight heíll make a toast to her memory
    Then heíll take another shot of a hundred proof misery
    His old broken heart still burns with desire
    Cause you canít put out an old flame by pouring whiskey on the fire

    His tears fall like rain but his pain just wonít die down
    Cause thereís another blaze thatís brewing as he buys another round

    CHORUS

    Heíll start drinking then heíll start thinking about her againí

    • Lyrics
    Wake Up And Smell The Coffee

    Hey now honey so what so we had us a little fight
    Both said some things that we didnít mean last night
    Yeah we should have kissed and made up instead
    Of giving up and getting up on the wrong side of the bed

    Now Lord knows that Iím an early riser
    With this new day he sent me a reminder
    Just as sure as the sun keeps rising
    True love is true and it knows no compromising

    CHORUS

    So what part of I love you donít you understand
    Maybe you should take a whiff in that big olí red coffee can
    If you still canít see youíre the one and only one for me and always will be
    Hereís a kiss and a cup sweetheart wake up and smell the coffee

    Looking right here at the front page of this morningís paper
    Just bad news and headlines of hatred and anger
    This olí cruel world will try to bring you to the ground
    But Iíll be danged if itís gonna keep on keeping a good love down

    CHORUS

    Honey ainít that just like a woman making something out of nothing at all
    Then again ainít that just like a man acting bullet proof and ten foot tall

    CHORUS

    • Lyrics
    The Heart Of Life

    Girl I hate to see you cry
    Lying there in that position
    Thereís things you need to hear
    So turn off your tears and listen

    CHORUS

    Pain throws your heart to the ground
    Love turns the whole thing around
    No it wonít all go the way that it should
    But I know the heart of life is good

    Now you know itís nothing new
    Bad news never had good timing
    There in the circle of your friends
    Weíll defend the silver lining

    CHORUS

    Pain throws your heart to the ground
    Love turns the whole thing around
    Fear is a friend who is misunderstood
    But I know the heart of life is good
    I know itís good

    • Lyrics
    Love Makiní Song

    Thereís way too many lying, stealing, crying, cheating
    Fool-hearted drinking songs about somebody who done somebody wrong
    Honey honky tonkiní is what I do but my true love is loving on you
    So baby tonight we gonna write a love makiní song

    CHORUS

    We can kick it off slow with a bottle of wine or get straight to the olí punch line
    Either way it starts itís gonna end with an all night long
    Itís guaranteed to be off the chart, solid gold, number one in my heart
    Baby tonight we gonna write a love makiní song

    Girl I get inspired by watching you the sweet things you say and do
    Maybe you got a few ideas of your own
    Well, kiss for kiss and note for note, shut the door and lock the deadbolt
    Cause baby tonight we gonna write a love makiní song

    CHORUS

    Yeah, kiss for kiss and note for note, shut the door and lock the dead bolt
    Cause baby tonight we gonna write a love makiní song
    I said baby tonight we gonna write a love makiní song
    A love makiní song

    Breaker Breaker One Nine

    Breaker breaker one nine is someone out there on that line
    If you see my girl wonít you please remind her
    That my heart is breaking and this big olí rig is shaking
    Iím gonna keep that hammer down until I find her

    Well she packed her bags and rented a U-Haul
    Un-hitched my heart hit the road around nightfall
    Now Iím throwiní hubs and speeding out of control
    She never said where she was going but she said where I could go

    CHORUS

    Breaker breaker one nine is someone out there on that line
    If you see my girl wonít you please remind her
    That my heart is breaking, but I donít smell no bacon
    So Iím gonna keep that hammer down until I find her

    Well we took that big trip on down the aisle
    Everything was hunky dory for a while
    Now this Detroit is winding, my mind is grinding gears
    I can hardly see the road with this truck load of tears

    Breaker breaker one nine is someone out there on that line
    If you see my girl wonít you please remind her
    Iíve got Smokey on my tail and unless I go to jail
    Iím gonna keep that hammer down until I find her
    Iím gonna tell her that I love her when I find her

    Can't Be A Cowboy Forever

    • Lyrics
    Canít Be A Cowboy Forever

    Now he donít expect her to stay true to him and she never says that she will
    But heís got a first love that just might kill him and she knows heís hooked on the thrill

    CHORUS

    So sheíll wait and worry then sheíll wait some more
    For the fever that drives him to just run its course
    She talks to that picture they took their last night together
    Says you canít be a cowboy forever, no you canít be a cowboy forever

    Sometimes he calls her and swears that the ground hurts more than it did yesterday
    But she knows his voice and he still sounds determined to do whatever it takes

    CHORUS

    Then one night he shows up and he says whatís for dinner with that cocky grin on his face
    The way that she smiled and the way that she held him told him he wasnít too late

    Then she closed her eyes and he put that ring on her finger
    And said you canít be a cowboy forever, no you canít be a cowboy forever
    No you canít be a cowboy forever

    Rollercoaster Ride

    I can still see you standing there next to me in the county fair ticket line
    With cotton candy in your one hand and your other hand in mine
    It seems just like yesterday, letter jackets and football games girl
    Weíve come a long way through the years had our fair share of heartache and tears

    CHORUS

    Weíve had our ups and downs and turn arounds but our love was stronger than any fight
    Even when we lost control we never let go we kept on hanginí on for dear life
    I know no matter the size of the mountain you and me will be side by side
    Baby ainít life and love one big rollercoaster ride

    Back in the day we were cool and crazy like two outlaws on the run
    Now making love means making babies and I swear weíre having twice the fun
    Itís been no walk in the park but then again thatís not our style
    It wouldnít be too entertaining without a little drama every once in awhile

    CHORUS

    Baby you still drive me crazy, you still make my heart skip a beat
    With those butterfly first time feelings youíve always kept me on the edge of my seat

    Hearts Are Breaking Across Texas

    Words cannot express the way you look in that white dress
    I donít believe thereís ever been such a beautiful sight
    All my dreams are coming true that yellow rose ainít got nothing on you
    Hearts are breaking across Texas tonight

    CHORUS

    Tears will be falling everywhere as youíre letting down your hair
    From cowboys wishing that it was them holding you tight
    But thatís the harsh reality and Iíd feel the same if you hadnít chose me
    Hearts are breaking across Texas tonight

    The Lonestar is shining bright above
    And thereís magic in the air
    And looking deep into your eyes I canít help but sympathize
    With those who will never know the kind of love we share

    CHORUS

    Yes hearts are breaking across Texas

    Angels & Outlaws

    Born and raised in Oklahoma
    The young man moved to Tennessee
    He started running with the devil
    Chasing that honky tonkerís dream

    While at some dive outside of L.A.
    On lifeís highway headed southbound
    She was sent from up above
    And her true love turned his world around

    CHORUS

    God bless angels and pray for outlaws
    To find a new found love for their lost cause
    Lord knows she loved him despite all his flaws
    And he loved her cause she made him wanna be a better man

    No there werenít no halo
    Above her beautiful brown hair
    And though he never saw her wings
    He always knew they were there

    Cause she had this way of knowing
    When he needed her the most
    Itís like she had some kind of connection
    With the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost

    CHORUS

    Lord knows it wasnít a cold day in hell
    Like everybody thought it would be
    Lord it was actually a beautiful July morning
    When he and that preacher man came walking up out of that creek

    Sweet Contradiction

    Sheís as pure as a Sunday morning
    Just as fun as a Saturday night
    Sheís as pretty as a stained glass window
    Always shining like a neon light

    When Iím holding her here in my arms
    I feel as if thereís nothing I canít do
    But just the thought of her leaving me
    Leaves me helpless and broken in two

    CHORUS

    My sweet contradiction
    Those velvet chains that bind me
    My cure and my addiction
    Is her love and only her love can set me free

    And no I donít understand
    What did I do to deserve to be her man
    Sheís such an angel so why is she
    Flying so low so she can love someone like me

    CHORUS

    Sheís as pure as a Sunday morning
    Just as fun as a Saturday night
    Sheís as pretty as a stained glass window
    Always shining like a neon light

    Yeah sheís my sweet, sheís so sweet, sheís my sweet contradiction
    That girl is sweet, sheís so sweet, sheís my sweet contradiction

    Danciní Shoes

    By that look on your face I know you know whatís on my mind
    Honey itís really half your fault standing there looking that fine
    I swear I canít believe my eyes you look so good it almost hurts
    Wearing nothing but a smile and one of my old favorite sweatshirts

    CHORUS

    If youíre wanting a reaction girl Iím fixing to ignite
    You say it takes two to tango so put on your danciní shoes tonight

    Thereís still that magic when we touch, just like I felt the very first time
    And I have to pinch myself cause I still canít believe youíre mine
    Lord knows Iím blessed to be the man who gets to sweep you off your feet
    When it comes to loving you, you know I never miss a beat

    CHORUS

    Thereís a full moon shining and baby weíre both fixing to find
    What you get when you mix soft kisses with a little red wine

    Philippians 3:12-14

    †12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

    Barbed Wire Halo

    God bless Texas and Deacon Shackleford
    He read the bible seven times and he believed every word
    That olí beat up leather book had been through it all
    He sat on the back pew so he could chew him a chaw singing

    Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me

    He carried candy for the kids in his Sunday dress coat
    Heíd take me fishing after church, he taught me things I needed to know
    No Deacon didnít have a family, Lord knows he wished he did
    He told the whole congregation that I was his grandkid

    CHORUS

    And today he joined up with Jesus wearing shiny pearl snaps
    We sang a few gospel hymns and then the soldier played taps
    I bet heís walking with Pete down a street paved with gold
    Showing off his brand spanking new wings and his barbed wire halo

    He married sweet Emma Grace before the war was through
    She held his right arm next to his anchor tattoo
    He was on a ship off at sea, when she died in child birth
    He lost his whole world from the far side of the earth

    He lost the will to love, he lost the will to live
    Until he met a man who taught him to forgive
    Yeah life took him to hell and back, to hell and back a time or two
    But in the end he beat the devil until he was black and blue

    Singing I once was lost, but now Iím found, was blind but now I seeí

    CHORUS

    Before he went he made me promise him that I wouldnít cry
    And though I told him that I wouldnít you know I couldnít help but lie

    Cause today he joined up with Jesus wearing shiny pearl snaps
    We sang a few gospel hymns and then the soldier played taps
    I bet heís walking with Pete down a street paved with gold
    As sure as the old church bell still rings
    He always said he had country in his soul
    Heís showing off his brand spanking new wings and barbed wire halo

    Sweet chariot coming forth to carry me home
    Swing low sweet chariot coming forth to carry me home

    That's What I Like About A Country Song

    • iTunes
    • Lyrics
    Thatís What I Like About A Country Song

    I heard someone out poking fun
    At this olí country boy and the songs that he sung
    Still cracking jokes he sarcastically implied
    Let me guess your girls gone and your dog just died, and I said hey

    CHORUS

    Thatís what I like about a country song, where somebody done somebody wrong
    Not just something that is understood, by those high rollers out in Hollywood
    Itís about real folks living a real life with real problems like an old ex wife
    If you agree with the boys and me then sing along, thatís what I like about a country song

    Some like to rock, some like to roll
    Some like it fast and some like it slow
    If youíre left or right or right down the middle
    Everybody stops to listen when that bow hits the fiddle

    Itís music for the rich or poor, hot mommas driving to the grocery store
    All the farmers, the doctors, the truckers and the teachers
    The young punks, the old drunks, even church of Christ preachers PRAISE THE LORD

    CHORUS
