    Kick The Dust Up

    Kick the dust up
    Come on

    All week long it's a farming town
    They're making that money grow
    Tractors, plows with flashing lights
    Backin up a two lane road
    They take one last lap around
    That sun up high goes down
    And then it's on, come on, girl, kick it on back
    Z71 like a Cadillac

    We go way out where
    There ain't nobody
    We turn this cornfield
    Into a party
    Pedal to the floorboard
    Eight up in a four door
    Burnin up a back road song
    Park it and we pile out
    Baby, watch your step now
    Better have your boots on
    Kick the dust up
    Back it on up
    Fill your cup up
    Let's tear it up up
    And kick the dust up

    Bar downtown, they got a line
    Of people waiting out the door
    Ten dollar drinks, it's packed inside
    I don't know what they're waitin for
    Got me a jar full of clear
    And I got that music for your ear
    And it's like knock knock knock goes the diesel
    If you really wanna see the beautiful people

    We go way out where
    There ain't nobody
    We turn this cornfield
    Into a party
    Pedal to the floorboard
    Eight up in a four door
    Burnin up a back road song
    Park it and we pile out
    Baby, watch your step now
    Better have your boots on
    Kick the dust up
    Let's back it on up
    Fill your cup up
    Let's tear it up up
    And kick the dust up

    Just follow me down 'neath the 32 bridge
    Y'all be glad you did
    Kick it

    We go way out where
    There ain't nobody
    We turn this cornfield
    Into a party
    Pedal to the floorboard
    Eight up in a four door
    Burnin up a back road song
    Park it and we pile out
    Baby, watch your step now
    Better have your boots on
    Kick the dust up (kick the dust up)
    Back it on up
    Fill your cup up
    That's what's up up
    Let's kick the dust up

    Kill The Lights

    High beams, you and me
    Little back road, barely see
    Right song, radio
    Throw it in low and drive slow
    I saw you and it lit me up
    A girl like you, it's just too much

    Kill the lights, kill the lights
    You can take me there tonight
    We can make some sparks fly
    We can make the dark cry
    Feel the ride, take me high
    The yellow moon in your eyes
    Lost in your slow stare
    In the middle of nowhere
    Skin on skin, don't care where we've been
    Pull me in and kill the lights

    We can feel our way through
    Let me just hold on to you
    Baby trust my hands
    Live it up while we still can and

    Kill the lights, kill the lights
    You can take me there tonight
    We can make some sparks fly
    We can make the dark cry
    Feel the ride, take me high
    The yellow moon in your eyes
    Lost in your slow stare
    In the middle of nowhere
    Skin on skin, don't care where we've been
    Pull me in and kill the lights

    Don't it feel right
    Until the sunrise
    We can just go on what we know

    Can't help but wanna want ya
    You wanna do this don't ya
    Come here, let me pull you closer
    You reach over and

    Kill the lights, kill the lights
    You can take me there tonight
    We can make some sparks fly
    We can make the dark cry
    Feel the ride, take me high
    The yellow moon in your eyes
    Lost in your slow stare
    In the middle of nowhere
    Skin on skin, don't care where we've been
    Skin on skin, don't care where we've been
    Pull me in and kill the lights

    Kill the lights
    Baby you and me, kill the lights
    Kill the lights

    Strip It Down

    Let it fade to black
    Let me run my fingers down your back
    Lets whisper, let's don't talk
    Baby, leave my T-shirt in the hall

    Like a needle finds a groove,
    Baby, we'll remember what to do
    To drown out every distraction,
    It's time we made it happen

    Strip it down, strip it down
    Back to you and me like it used to be
    When it was an old back road with an old school beat
    Cowboy boots by your little bare feet
    Let it out, tell me right now
    Everything I need in them white cotton sheets
    Dirty dance me slow in the summertime heat
    Feel my belt turn loose from these old blue jeans
    We both know that we lost it somehow
    Let's get it found
    Strip it down, down, down

    I wanna drop this cell phone now
    And let it shatter on the ground
    They ain't holdin' nothin' these two hands
    Until they're holding you again

    Oh, strip it down, strip it down
    Back to you and me like it used to be
    When it was an old back road with an old school beat
    Cowboy boots by your little bare feet
    Let it out, tell me right now
    Everything I need in them white cotton sheets
    Dirty dance me slow in the summertime heat
    Feel my belt turn loose from these old blue jeans
    We both know that we lost it somehow
    Let's get it found
    Strip it down, down, down
    Strip it down, down, down

    I don't wanna let you go
    No, not tonight
    I just wanna love you so bad, baby
    So lets close our eyes

    And strip it down, strip it down
    Back to you and me like it used to be
    When it was an old back road with an old school beat
    Cowboy boots by your little bare feet
    Let it out, tell me right now
    Everything I need in them white cotton
    sheets Dirty dance me slow in the summertime heat
    Feel my belt turn loose from these old blue jeans
    We both know that we lost it somehow
    Let's get it found
    Strip it down, down, down
    Strip it down, down, down

    Strip it down, down, down

    (Oh, Oh)
    What you doing in this place?
    Well I could probably ask you the same thing

    Do you want it on the rocks?
    A double shot of heaven
    Spilling' off the top

    Ain't a clock, a tick, a tock that's gonna stop a night we won't regret
    So put your drink down and throw your camera up, flip it around and snap a payback picture
    Send it to my ex, I'll send it to my ex and send 'em both a text
    Saying we ain't we ain't going home alone tonight
    Girl you ain't gotta, I ain't gotta go home alone tonight

    Slow country from a cover band, I got you covered if you don't know how to dance
    But if you want we could grab a cab..Girl we got all night, I've got a bottomless tab
    So lets go

    Shot for shot for shot 'til we forgot what we came here to forget
    Ain't a clock, a tick, a tock that's gonna stop a night we won't regret
    So put your drink down and throw your camera up, flip it around and snap a payback picture
    Send it to my ex, I'll send it to my ex and send 'em both a text
    Saying we ain't we ain't going home alone tonight
    Girl you ain't gotta, I ain't gotta go home alone tonight

    It feels too good to let it end right here (I ain't going home alone home tonight)
    So lets not let it end, let it end right here (girl you're going home with me tonight)

    So lets go shot for shot for shot 'til we forgot what we came here to forget
    Ain't a clock, a tick, a tock thatís gonna stop a night we won't regret
    So put your drink down, throw your camera up, flip it around and snap a payback picture

    Razor Blade

    You're not looking for anything more than a
    Good time and an open door
    A good band and a dance floor
    Then she walks in
    You got a pickup line to throw, but
    She walks up and says "Hello"
    Before you can even let it go
    She's got you reeled in

    You can't escape if you wanted to
    You don't know what you got yourself
    into

    You're blindfolded
    Walking south down the whiskey tracks
    She's rolling north like a neon train
    Bolt of lightning in the night
    Speed of light, you won't realize
    You been struck 'til you see the flame
    Her smile'll slash you to the heart
    There you are in the back of a bar
    Bleeding, but you feel no pain
    She won't cut you like a knife, like a knife
    That little look in her eyes'll
    Cut you like a razor blade
    You wait

    Used to playing by these rules
    So you sit there and try to play it cool
    Do your best not to play the fool
    But it's too late now
    You wanna see how far she'll let you go
    She'll let you think you're in control

    You're blindfolded
    Walking south down the whiskey tracks
    She's rolling north like a neon train
    Bolt of lightning in the night
    Speed of light, you won't realize
    You been struck 'til you see the flame
    Her smile'll slash you to the heart
    There you are in the back of a bar
    Bleeding, but you feel no pain
    She won't cut you like a knife, like a knife
    That little look in her eyes'll
    Cut you like a razor blade

    You can't escape if you wanted to
    You don't know what you got yourself
    into

    You're blindfolded
    Walking south down the whiskey tracks
    She's rolling north like a neon train
    Bolt of lightning in the night
    Speed of light, you won't realize
    You been struck 'til you see the flame
    Her smile'll slash you to the heart
    There you are in the back of a bar
    Bleeding, but you feel no pain
    She won't cut you like a knife, like a knife
    That little look in her eyes'll
    Cut you like a razor blade
    Cut you like a razor blade
    She cut you like a razor blade

    Fast

    Fast
    That's the kind of car you wanna drive when you're sixteen
    Fast
    That's the kind of boys that you want on the home team
    Fast
    Yeah, you think you're gonna catch your big dreams just like that
    Fast
    And here you are, looking back

    Sixty seconds now feels more like thirty
    Tick-tock, won't stop, around it goes
    Sand through the glass sure falls in a hurry
    All you keep trying to do is slow it down, soak it in
    You're trying to make the good times last as long as you can
    But you can't, man
    It just goes too fast

    Fast
    That's what your parents said when they were falling in love
    It's too fast
    There ain't no way the two of us were ever going to last
    But we did, and here we are, and our only problem is

    Sixty seconds now feels more like thirty
    Tick-tock, won't stop, around it goes
    Sand through the glass sure falls in a hurry
    All you keep trying to do is slow it down, soak it in
    You're trying to make the good times last as long as you can
    But you can't, man
    It just goes too fast

    Looking at you looking out the window right now
    Those eyes, that dress, that smile, that laugh
    If I could hit pause I would somehow
    But it don't work like that

    Sixty seconds now feels more like thirty
    Tick-tock, won't stop, around it goes
    Sand through the glass sure falls in a hurry
    All you keep trying to do is slow it down, soak it in
    You're trying to make the good times last as
    long as you can
    But you can't, no
    It just goes too fast
    Way too fast
    Way too fast

    Move

    Your mama packed y'all up and moved you to the south
    Backed a U-Haul cross a one-tree yard
    To a tin roof shotgun house
    You didn't know nobody, didn't talk too much
    Had a rocking little body with a yankee strut
    A little shy side, a little wild side
    With your long blonde hair all pulled up
    Then you got in with some southern bells
    Cut your jeans off with a rebel yell
    Learned the talk of the Bible belt
    Now, girl, I melt when you

    M-O-V-E, I love it
    Yeah, I love it when you get that beat
    Boots on, stomp your feet
    It's like you've been waiting all week to
    Move like you do
    All sexy and smooth
    Like you love to
    Oh, girl, look at you
    Legs and your hips
    Live oak, moonlit
    When that song hits
    Damn, you turn it loose
    Stars of a southern sky
    Buzz of the fire and ice
    DJ plays that throwback tune
    But I can't move when you move

    It's like there's something in the air
    That turns you wild when a country song
    Is way up loud and the sun goes down
    Right about then, you lock eyes on me
    You got me where you want me, where I
    wanna be
    All up in the middle of your left and right
    Your side to side, yeah, you're right on time
    when you

    M-O-V-E, I love it
    Yeah, I love it when you get that beat
    Boots on, stomp your feet
    It's like you've been waiting all week to
    Move like you do
    All sexy and smooth
    Like you love to
    Oh, girl, look at you
    Legs and your hips
    Live oak, moonlit
    When that song hits
    Damn, you turn it loose
    Stars of a southern sky
    Buzz of the fire and ice
    DJ plays that throwback tune
    But I can't move when you move

    Let me talk to you
    M-O-V-E
    I love the way you, love the way you feel the beat
    C-O-M-E
    Come on, I wanna see you

    Move like you do
    Sexy and smooth
    Like you love to
    Girl, just look at you
    Legs and your hips
    Live oak, moonlit
    When that song hits
    Damn, you turn it loose
    Stars of a southern sky
    Buzz of the fire and ice
    DJ playin' throwback tunes
    I wanna move when you
    But I can't move when you
    No, I can't move when you move
    No, I can't move when you move

    Just Over

    She called and said she wanted to see me
    I say, "Yeah, that's fine, baby, drop on by"
    I figured I could make it better
    Just like every other time we had this fight
    Of all the kind of over it could've been
    I never would've bet on this

    I was thinking she would come over, stay over
    Wake up hungover, still head over heels for me
    Thought it was something we could talk over
    Drink over, then it would be over
    Back to how it used to be
    No, but it's the kind where the sheets get colder
    And she don't need no shoulder to cry on
    She's gone, she ain't pulling over
    It's just over

    When she left the kitchen, she left no questions
    I said where in the world did I go wrong?
    And it don't matter where she's headed
    She's gone, gone, gone

    I was thinking she would come over, stay over
    Wake up hungover, still head over heels for me
    Thought it was something we could talk over
    Drink over, then it would be over
    Back how it used to be
    No, to but it's the kind where the sheets get colder
    And she don't need no shoulder to cry on
    She's gone, she ain't pulling over
    It's just over

    Like the page, she's turning over
    Like the light, she's starting over
    Without me

    I was thinking she would come over, stay over
    Wake up hungover, still head over heels for me
    Thought it was something we could talk over
    Drink over, then it would be over
    Back to how it used to be
    No, but it's the kind where the sheets get colder
    And she don't need no shoulder to cry on
    She's gone, she ain't pulling over
    It's just over
    It's just over
    Yeah, it's just over
    It's just over

    Love It Gone

    I know, I know it, baby
    Sounds like your day's been crazy
    I just wanna hold ya
    All the weight that's on your shoulders
    Anything that's wrong
    Let me, let me love it gone
    Come on and trust me, honey
    I can turn those raindrops sunny
    Let me untie that tangle
    Put on that kissing angel good morning song
    Let me, let me love it gone

    Little barefoot dancing
    Little kissing in the kitchen romancing
    Got a whole lot of love that I've been saving
    And a bottle of wine that's been waiting
    Long time for a night like this
    Whatever's wrong, shake it off your list
    Girl, I want, I want
    I wanna get lost in your lipstick
    Oh, baby, let me love it
    Let me, let me love it
    Let me, let me love it gone

    Why don't you slip into something off the frequent menu
    Kick back, let down your hair
    Yeah, that one right there looks so good on
    Let me, let me love it gone

    Little barefoot dancing
    Little kissing in the kitchen romancing
    Got a whole lot of love that I've been saving
    And a bottle of wine that's been waiting
    Long time for a night like this
    Whatever's wrong, shake it off your list
    Girl, I want, I want
    I wanna get lost in your lipstick
    Oh, baby, let me love it
    Let me, let me love it
    Let me, let me love it gone
    So long

    This night looks good on you
    Let me love it, let me, let me love it
    And every little inch of you
    Let me love it, let me, let me love it

    Little barefoot dancing
    Little kissing in the kitchen romancing
    Got a whole lot of love that I've been saving
    And a bottle of wine that's been waiting
    Long time for a night like this
    Whatever's wrong, shake it off your list

    Let me love it
    Let me, let me love it
    Baby, let me love it gone

    Way Way Back

    Hey, baby, it's been a minute since
    Me and you got caught up in
    A little wild and young kinda reckless love
    That song that was playing when we first kissed
    Yeah, you probably don't think I remember it
    Got it in the truck
    I can dial it up

    Every little scratch on that CD
    Made it skip along like my heartbeat did back then
    Baby, hop in, we can take it

    Way, way back
    Find that no-name road
    Cross those boxcar tracks
    Where we used to go
    And lay it way, way, back
    Let the moonshine through
    Kissing you like yesterday
    Like it wasn't all that way, way back

    Baby, don't try to hide that smile
    I can see that memory in your mind
    Running all around, we can chase it down
    You look even better than you did back then
    Girl, close your eyes and we'll be there in no time
    And we can rewind it

    Way, way, back
    Find that no-name road
    Cross those boxcar tracks
    Where we used to go
    And lay it way, way, back
    Let the moonshine through
    Kissing you like yesterday
    Like it wasn't all that way, way back

    Like an old school song
    Two of us just hanging on to the night
    Wouldn't you like to go there, baby?

    Every little scratch on that CD
    Made it skip along like my heartbeat did back
    then
    Baby, hop in, we can take it

    Way, way back
    Find that no-name road
    Cross those boxcar tracks
    Where we used to go
    And lay it way, way, back
    Let the moonshine through
    Kissing you like yesterday
    Like it wasn't all that way, way back
    Way, way back
    Like it wasn't all that way, way back
    Way, way back

    To The Moon And Back

    Through the dirt and the gravel
    Through the years and the miles
    Every road that you travelled
    Through the tears and the smiles
    Through the clear and the muddy
    Through the thick and thin
    The quiet nights, the howling wind
    Through the good and the ugly
    The blue and the black
    To the ends of the Earth
    To the moon and back

    Through all of the words
    The mean and the kind
    Through the strings that unravel
    And the ties that bind
    From the crazy and the different
    To the more of the same
    From the coast is clear
    To a hurricane
    Yeah, I'll be right beside you
    On a roll or off the tracks
    To the ends of the Earth
    To the moon and back
    To the moon and back

    Through the bitter and the sweet
    The cold and the fire
    Lonely cotton sheets
    And the burning desire
    Until our song is over
    Til the stars all fade to black
    I'm gonna love you
    To the ends of the Earth
    To the moon and back
    Yeah, I'm gonna love you
    All the way to the moon and back
    To the moon and back

    Huntin', Fishin' And Lovin' Every Day

    If I could make a livin' from walkin' in the woods
    You can bet I'd be sittin' pretty good
    High on a hill looking at a field down wind
    If I could make a nickel off of turnin' them bass
    Never worry bout the price of gas
    I'd be wheelin' and dealin' and sittin' there reelin' 'em in

    Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
    That's the prayer that a country boy prays
    Thank God He made me this way
    Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
    Early in the mornin', late in the evenin'
    I'm getting red dirt rich and Flint River paid
    Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day

    I get a little farm pond buzz
    Sound of gravel when I'm backin' up
    Pullin' the string on a 9.9 two-stroke (Mercury)
    I love it when my baby wants to roll with me
    Throws her boots on, climbs in a tree
    Tuckin' her hair in my hat and she's ready to go

    And we get to huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
    That's the prayer that a country boy prays
    Thank God He made me this way
    Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
    Early in the mornin', late in the evenin'
    I'm getting red dirt rich and Flint River paid
    Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day

    So while y'all are up there
    Breathin' in that old dirty air
    I'll be down here
    Knee-deep in the Muckalee

    Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
    I wanna see them tall pines sway
    Y'all close them eyes, let's go there in our minds

    Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
    That's the prayer this country boy prays
    Thank God He made me this way
    Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
    Black coffee in the mornin', dark whiskey in the evenin'
    I'm gettin' red dirt rich and Flint River paid
    Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day

    Won't you come along with me
    Won't you come along with me
    I know you wanna see
    Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day

    Scarecrows

    We didn't have no downtown strip
    We'd all pile in and take a 2 mile trip
    To where the road runs out
    Sit there and sip on whatever anybody's older brother could get
    Where we worked in the dirt and fell in love
    Got my heart broke, broke down my truck
    Trying to spin out, show off in that mud too many times

    So much has changed
    But then again, it ain't

    Just like the scarecrows, even when the wind blows
    We keep our boots and our roots in these cornrows
    Where we threw down and we passed it around every Friday night
    Just some old plowboys pretending we're cowboys
    We came from nothing, oh, but look at us now, boys
    Even when we leave here, we'll always be here, wherever we go
    Just like the scarecrows

    I don't get back near enough and just like these fields
    Yeah, we all grow up
    And it takes a little more than a paper cup to get dizzy
    This hundred acre stretch is buried in my bones
    Don't matter how long that I've been gone
    I can be anywhere and some song comes on
    And it's like I never left home

    Just like the scarecrows, even when the wind blows
    We keep our boots and our roots in these cornrows
    Where we threw down and we passed it around every Friday night
    Just some old plowboys pretending we're cowboys
    We came from nothing, oh, but look at us now, boys
    Even when we leave here, we'll always be here, wherever we go
    Just like the scarecrows

    So much has changed
    But then again, it ain't

    Just like the scarecrows, even when the wind blows
    We keep our boots and our roots in these cornrows
    Where we threw down and we passed it around on a Friday night
    Just some old plowboys pretending we're cowboys
    We came from nothing, oh, but look at us now, boys
    Even when we leave here, we'll always be here, wherever we go
    Just like the scarecrows
    Just like the scarecrows
