    Country Girl (Shake It for Me)

    Hey girl. Go on now.
    You know you've got everybody looking.

    Got a little boom in my big truck
    Gonna open up the doors and turn it up
    Gonna stomp my boots in the Georgia mud
    Gonna watch you make me fall in love

    Get up on the hood of my daddy's tractor
    Up on the tool box, it don't matter
    Down on the tailgate, girl I can't wait
    To watch you do your thing

    Shake it for the young bucks sittin' in the honky-tonks
    For the rednecks rockin' 'til the break of dawn
    For the DJ spinnin' that country song
    Come on, come on, come on
    Shake it for the birds, shake it for the bees
    Shake it for the catfish swimming down deep in the creek
    For the crickets and the critters and the squirrels
    Shake it to the moon, shake it for me girl, aww

    Country girl, shake it for me girl,
    Shake it for me girl, shake it for me
    Country girl, shake it for me girl,
    Shake it for me girl, shake it for me

    Somebody's sweet little farmer's child,
    That got it in her blood to get a little wild
    Pony tail and a pretty smile,
    Rope me in from a country mile

    So come on over here and get in my arms
    Spin me around this big ole barn
    Tangle me up like grandma's yarn, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Shake it for the young bucks sittin' in the honky-tonks
    For the rednecks rockin' 'til the break of dawn
    For the DJ spinnin' that country song
    Come on, come on, come on
    Shake it for the birds, shake it for the bees
    Shake it for the catfish swimming down deep in the creek
    For the crickets and the critters and the squirrels
    Shake it to the moon, shake it for me girl, aww

    Country girl, shake it for me girl,
    Shake it for me girl, shake it for me
    Country girl, shake it for me girl,
    Shake it for me girl, shake it for me

    Guitar!

    Now dance like a dandelion
    In the wind on the hill underneath the pines, yeah
    Move like the river flows
    Feel the kick drum down deep in your toes

    All I wanna do is get to holdin' you and get to knowin' you
    And get to showin' you and get to lovin' you 'fore the night is through
    Baby you know what to do

    Shake it for the young bucks sittin' in the honky-tonks
    For the rednecks rockin' 'til the break of dawn
    For the DJ spinnin' that country song
    Come on, come on, come on
    Shake it for the birds, shake it for the bees
    Shake it for the catfish swimming down deep in the creek
    For the crickets and the critters and the squirrels
    Shake it to the moon, shake it for me girl, aww

    Country girl, shake it for me girl,
    Shake it for me girl, shake it for me
    Oh, country girl
    Country girl, shake it for me girl,
    Shake it for me girl, shake it for me

    Country girl, shake it for me girl,
    Shake it for me girl, shake it for me
    Country girl, shake it for me girl,
    Shake it for me girl, shake it for me

    Drunk On You

    Cottonwood fallin' like snow in July
    Sunset, riverside, 4 wheel drives
    In a tail light circle

    Roll down the windows, turn it on up
    Pour a little crown in a dixie cup
    Get the party started

    Girl, you make my speakers go boom boom
    Dancin' on the tailgate in a full moon
    That kinda thing makes a man go mmm hmmm
    You're lookin' so good in what's left of those blue jeans
    Drip of honey on the money make her gotta be
    The best buzz I'm ever gonna find
    Hey, I'm a little drunk on you
    And high on summertime

    If you ain't a 10 you're a 9.9
    Tippin' n' spillin' that home-made wine
    On your tied up T-shirt
    Every little kiss is drivin' me wild
    Throwin' little cherry bombs into my fire
    Good god almighty

    Girl, you make my speakers go boom boom
    Dancin' on the tailgate in a full moon
    That kinda thing makes a man go mmm hmmm
    You're lookin' so good in what's left of those blue jeans
    Drip of honey on the money make her gotta be
    The best buzz I'm ever gonna find
    Hey, I'm a little drunk on you
    And high on summertime

    Let's slip on out where it's a little bit darker
    And when it gets a little bit hotter
    We'll take it off on out in the water

    Girl, you make my speakers go boom boom
    Dancin' on the tailgate in a full moon
    That kinda thing makes a man go mmm hmmm
    You're lookin' so good in what's left of those blue jeans
    Drip of honey on the money make her gotta be
    The best buzz I'm ever gonna find
    Hey, I'm a little drunk on you
    And high on summertime

    Yeah, I'm a little drunk on you

    Too Damn Young

    We met down at the floatin' dock
    She snuck out scared, she might get caught
    We were nervous, but it was worth it

    There was no such thing as consequence
    With her in my arms it finally made sense
    In that moonlight, I saw her tan lines

    Every time my feet are danglin' in the water
    I can't help but think about her
    Lyin' there with her wet hair
    Didn't know what we were doin' but we didn't care
    That old wooden dock was warm on our backs
    T-shirt for a pillow and just like that
    She kissed me like she meant forever
    We were too damn young to know any better

    The fog rolled in, she said "I better go"
    She took my t-shirt and wore it home
    A memory, a souvenir she could keep

    So I stayed and watched that sunrise
    Like it was wakin' up my life
    To what love was, I can still see us

    Every time my feet are danglin' in the water
    I can't help but think about her
    Lyin' there with her wet hair
    Didn't know what we were doin' but we didn't care
    That old wooden dock was warm on our backs
    T-shirt for a pillow and just like that
    She kissed me like she meant forever
    We were too damn young to know any better[x2]

    We were too damn young to know any better

    I Don't Want This Night to End

    Girl I know I donít know you
    But your pretty little eyes so blue
    Are pulling me in
    Like the moon on your skin

    Iím so glad you trusted me
    To slide up on this dusty seat
    And let your hair down
    Get out of town

    Got the stars coming out over my hood
    And all I know now is itís going good

    You got your hands up
    Youíre rocking in my truck
    You got the radio on
    Youíre singing every song
    Iím set on cruise control
    Iím slowly losing hold
    Of everything I got
    Youíre looking so damn hot

    And I donít know what road weíre on
    Or where weíve been
    From staring at you girl
    All I know is I donít want this night to end

    Gonna cuss the morning when it comes
    Cause I know that the rising sun
    Ainít no good for me
    Cause youíll have to leave

    Gonna make the most of every mile
    Do anything to make your smile
    Land on my lips
    Get drunk on your kiss

    Clock on the dash says 3:35
    Thereís plenty of gas and the nightís still alive

    You got your hands up
    Youíre rocking in my truck
    You got the radio on
    Youíre singing every song
    Iím set on cruise control
    Iím slowly losing hold
    Of everything I got
    Youíre looking so damn hot

    And I donít know what road weíre on
    Or where weíve been
    From staring at you girl
    All I know is I donít want this night to end

    You got your hands up
    Youíre rocking in my truck
    You got the radio on
    Youíre singing every song
    Iím set on cruise control
    Iím slowly losing hold
    Of everything I got
    Youíre looking so damn hot

    And I donít know what road weíre on
    Or where weíve been
    From staring at you girl
    All I know is I donít want this night to end

    I donít want this night to end

    No I donít want this night to end

    You Don't Know Jack

    He asked me for a dollar, I said "Go get a job"
    I turned up my collar and started walkin' off
    He said "I don't blame you, I know what you think.
    I'd just spend your money, to buy another drink"

    But you don't know Jack,
    Double shot, eighty proof, on the rocks,
    Until you've lost it all.
    And you can't go back
    To your life, and your kids, and your ex-wife
    With just a telephone call.
    If you think it's just a bottle,
    In an old brown paper sack
    You don't know Jack.

    He showed me a picture, of two little girls
    Wearin' Easter dresses, hair done up in curls
    He said "God bless their mamma,
    She said I couldn't stay.
    And buddy if you're wonderin',
    How could I throw it all away"

    You don't know Jack,
    Double shot, eighty proof, on the rocks,
    Until you've lost it all.
    And you can't go back
    To your life, and your kids, and your ex-wife
    With just a telephone call.
    If you think it's just a bottle,
    In an old brown paper sack
    You don't know Jack.

    If you never felt the fire,
    Running through your veins,
    If you've never seen the devil,
    Face to face...

    You don't know Jack,
    Double shot, eighty proof, on the rocks,
    Until you've lost it all.
    So brother just be glad, and tonight
    Hold your kids, kiss your wife
    And when you talk to God,
    Count up all your blessings
    And thank the good Lord that
    You don't know Jack.
    You don't know Jack.

    Harvest Time

    There's peanut dust and corn husks driftin' through the air tonight
    The marchin' band's warmin' up under the football lights
    There's tractor-trailers backed up down by the elevator
    Train track grain car will roll in later
    Get filled up and head on out in the world

    It's harvest time in this little town
    Time to bring it on in, pay the loans down
    Fill our diesel tank up, make another round
    There's a big red moon comin' up in the sky
    Combine's cuttin' in a staggered line
    The only time of year we miss the church bells chime
    It's harvest time

    There's a thermos and a water jug rollin' around in the cab
    A set of socket wrenches wrapped up in a greasy red rag
    Bobby's mother pulls in the field bringin' us supper
    We grab a bite and make sure to hug her
    Saddle back up and let the big wheels roll

    It's harvest time in this little town
    Time to bring it on in, pay the loans down
    Fill our diesel tank up, make another round
    There's a big red moon comin' up in the sky
    Combine's cuttin' in a staggered line
    The only time of year we miss the church bells chime
    It's harvest time

    At a quarter 'til 2 I kick off my boots in the laundry room
    We'll start it all over tomorrow at noon
    'Til it's all done until we're all done

    It's harvest time in this little town
    Time to bring it on in, pay the loans down
    Fill our diesel tank up, make another round
    There's a big red moon comin' up in the sky
    Combine's cuttin' in a staggered line
    The only time of year we miss the church bells chime
    It's harvest time

    I Know You're Gonna Be There

    I'm gonna put on my new shirt
    Shine up these old boots
    Take a deep breath
    Try to keep my cool
    I know you're gonna be there
    I'm gonna have a couple drinks, just to knock off the edge
    Not too much, don't wanna make a fool of myself
    I know you're gonna be there, I know you're gonna be there

    And I'm gonna bring somebody I barely even know
    And when you turn my way, I'm gonna pull her in close
    And the crazy thing about it is I ain't into her at all
    I just wanna see if you still care
    I know you're gonna be there

    You love the band that's playing, you wouldn't miss them for the world
    All our friends are coming out and if I know one thing, girl, I know you're gonna be there
    Gonna walk right by that table were you always like to sit
    And when I run into you, it's gonna be an accident
    I know you're gonna be there

    I'm gonna act like it ain't nothing, but another Friday night
    And you're just some old friend and I'm doing just fine
    Like I'm only going out to shake off another week
    Maybe see the boys and catch a buzz somewhere
    But I know you're gonna be there

    And I'm gonna bring somebody I barely even know
    And when you turn my way, I'm gonna pull her in real close
    And the crazy thing about it is I ain't into her at all
    I just wanna see if you still care
    I know you're gonna be there, I know you're gonna be there

    I'm gonna put on my new shirt
    Shine up these old boots
    Truth is when I see yah, I don't know what I'll do

    Muckalee Creek Water

    It flows underneath the 32 bridge,
    And cuts through the heart of South Georgia.
    Big copperheads and mean wild pigs,
    And gators in the weeds waitin' for ya.

    I leave my phone in the truck,
    I leave my truck at the road
    My four-wheeler gets me where I wanna go
    I leave the world behind,
    I pull my hat down low,
    Get back to my roots, by a full moon glow

    I got an old Jon boat that I stowed down there
    On them hot summer nights when I get a-wild hare
    I got a moonshine stash in a cypress stump
    And a catfish line going - bump bump
    An old tractor tire where I sit by the fire
    And drink to a sweet swamp song.
    So if you're looking for me, don't even bother
    When I dip my feet in that Muckalee creek water.

    Daddy brought me down here when I was a kid
    Taught me how to bait a crawfish basket.
    From the time I was old enough to walk
    He had me running down squirrels and rabbits.

    I feel right at home in this neck of the woods
    If this was all I had, I'd be living good
    So let the stock market do what it's gonna do
    Let the dollar go down and gas over the roof

    I got an old Jon boat that I stowed down there
    On them hot summer nights when I get a-wild hare
    I got a moonshine stash in a cypress stump
    And a catfish line going - bump bump
    An old tractor tire where I sit by the fire
    And drink to a sweet swamp song.
    So if you're looking for me, don't even bother
    When I dip my feet in that Muckalee creek water.

    I'm free, and I'm me
    Being everything that I wanna be
    Nobody jacking with me,
    No sign of the city lights.
    Hell with the city lights!

    Well I got an old Jon boat that I stowed down there
    On them hot summer nights when I get a-wild hare
    I got a moonshine stash in a cypress stump
    And a catfish line going - bump bump bump
    An old tractor tire where I sit by the fire
    And drink to a sweet swamp song.
    So if you're looking for me, don't even holler
    When I get down deep in that Muckalee creek water.
    That Muckalee creek water.

    Tailgate Blues

    I catch my buzz in the black of night
    Where nobody ever goes and the warm wind blows
    If I loose my cool in the open and it shows
    That Iím down and I ainít alright

    I search my soul where there is no moon
    The trees all cross and are covered in moss
    If the crickets wanna know then Iíll tell them what I lost
    Oh, I got the tailgate blues

    I ainít sure were it all began
    Somewhere íround here I know
    This bridge was a little more crowded then
    I was playing her a tailgate show
    And now Iím just sittiní here alone

    To catch my buzz in the black of night
    Where nobody ever goes and the warm wind blows
    If I loose my cool in the open and it shows
    That Iím down and I ainít alright

    I search my soul where there is no moon
    The trees all cross and are covered in moss
    If the crickets wanna know then Iíll tell them what I lost
    Oh Iíve got the tailgate blues

    Damn that AM radio
    For playing more than a song
    My heart wonít beat if the strings are broke
    The melodyís hittiní me wrong
    Right here where she belongs

    I catch my buzz in the black of night
    Where nobody ever goes and the warm wind blows
    If I loose my cool in the open and it shows
    That Iím down and I ainít alright

    I search my soul where there is no moon
    The trees all cross and are covered in moss
    If the crickets wanna know then Iíll tell them what I lost
    Oh, I got the tailgate blues

    The crickets heard my story and I listened to em sing
    I guess Iíll close the tailgate up
    There ainít no telling what tomorrow might bring
    Maybe me and a Dixie cup
    But that wonít be enoughÖ

    Yes I catch my buzz in the black of night
    Where nobody ever goes and the warm wind blows
    If I loose my cool in the open and it shows
    That Iím down and I ainít alright

    I search my soul where there is no moon
    The trees all cross and are covered in moss
    If the crickets wanna know then Iíll tell them what I lost
    Oh, I got the tailgate blues

    I catch my buzz in the black of night
    Where nobody ever goes and the warm wind blows
    If I loose my cool in the open and it shows
    That Iím down and I ainít alright

    Been There, Done That

    Girl you and me ain't talking much
    I just slam the door and leave in my truck
    There ain't nothin' left for us I think enough's enough
    I look down see your name there on my phone
    Then I hit ignore and just drive on
    We've been living like this too long
    And there ain't no reason to turn around, baby you can have it all

    I ain't, I ain't coming back
    I've already been there done that
    And I'm done with you messing with my mind
    The last time's the last time baby
    I can only change who I am so much
    And all I can give is all my love
    And my love ain't never been enough
    So I ain't coming back,
    I've been there done that

    Street by street and town after little town
    Feels like I'm on the right road now
    I bet you're probably wondering how I could just walk out
    I put you high up as I could
    And I know I've done everything I should
    To try to make a bad thing good
    I guess it just took too long for me to see
    We weren't meant to be

    I ain't, I ain't coming back
    I've already been there done that
    And I'm done with you messing with my mind
    The last time's the last time baby
    I can only change who I am so much
    And all I can give is all my love
    And my love ain't never been enough
    So I ain't coming back,
    I've been there done that

    I'll wake up, and I'll start to second guess myself
    And I'll crave your touch, oh but I know too well...

    That I ain't, I ain't coming back
    I've already been there done that
    And I'm done with you messing with my mind
    The last time's the last time baby
    I can only change who I am so much
    And all I can give is all my love
    And my love ain't never been enough
    So I ain't coming back,
    No, I ain't coming back
    I've been there done that

    Faded Away

    I don't remember much about that time,
    Just the smell of the air and your hand in mine.
    Riding the strip, sittin' on my lap
    In the back of the truck with the only friends I had.

    It was spring break, we were out late,
    And I though goodness for heavens sake.
    When I saw you...
    And then I kissed you...

    On a balcony over the sun
    In a chair by the rail, high above everyone
    We made love as the waves rolled in
    And we owned that town for one weekend.

    Like the tan on my skin, our names in the sand
    Like the sound of the boat
    Starting up, heading out of the bay
    Girl you... faded away.

    I still taste the shots on your lips that night,
    And the smoke from the club still burns my eyes
    Feel of your body takin' off your dress,
    Waking up that morning in a tangled mess.
    So if I'da known, I'da held on...
    A little bit longer and stronger with nothing to lose,
    Cause I still see you...

    On a balcony over the sun
    In a chair by the rail, high above everyone
    We made love as the waves rolled in
    And we owned that town for one weekend.

    Like the tan on my skin, our names in the sand
    Like the sound of the boat
    Starting up, heading out of the bay
    Girl you... faded away.

    On a balcony over the sun
    In a chair by the rail, high above everyone
    I watched you drive through the gate
    Without saying the words I needed to say.

    Like the tan on my skin, our names in the sand
    Like the tears on your face
    And the sun going down that day
    Girl you... faded away.
    You faded away.

    I Knew You That Way

    The secret way long shadows bleed into the night
    The Desperate way leaves in the fall hold colors tight
    The way that thunder knows the taste of summer rain
    I knew you that way

    The way that cool mountain water dances down to the sea
    Bound by something strong but still so wild and free
    It gives into the passion of the pair that takes
    I knew you that way

    I held you closer than I had a right to hold
    But the only thing that time can't take away
    Is I knew you that way

    The way that skin on skin can start a crazy fire
    That no one sees but burns all night long with desire
    The quiet easing love that makes a woman wanna stay
    I knew you that way

    I held you closer than I had a right to hold
    But the only thing that time can't take away
    Is I knew you that way

    The holy way that love knows it should never end
    The sacred way that stars got sailors home again
    Like teardrops know the words to amazing grace
    I knew you that way
    I knew you that way
    I knew you that way
