Born Here Live Here Die Here Tracks

  1. Knockin' Boots

    This truck needs a half tank
    These wheels need a two-lane
    This radio needs three songs to play
    To get me 'cross town to you
    That dress needs to slip off
    That hair needs to come down
    Friday nights need to do what Friday nights need to do
    That's the truth

    Yeah, birds need bees and ice needs whiskey
    Boys like me need girls like you to kiss me
    "Fishin' in the Dark", needs Nitty Gritty
    Under that pale moon
    Sweet tea needs that sugar stirrin'
    Small town nights need both ends burnin'
    Shades need drawin', hearts need fallin'
    Boots need knockin', knockin' boots
    Knockin' boots, me and you, oh (oh)

    Long weeks need a weekend
    Cheap drinks need a-slingin'
    That dance floor needs some me on you
    And you on me tonight
    Sing-alongs need to be sung
    Tip bells need to be rung
    Last calls need a, "Call that cab"
    And backseats need, "I want you so bad"

    Yeah, birds need bees and ice needs whiskey
    Boys like me need girls like you to kiss me
    "Fishin' in the Dark", needs Nitty Gritty
    Under that pale moon
    Sweet tea needs that sugar stirrin'
    Small town nights need both ends burnin'
    Shades need drawin', hearts need fallin'
    Boots need knockin', knockin' boots
    Knockin' boots, girl, me and you

    Doors need shuttin'
    Lights need cuttin'
    Lips need lockin'
    Boots need knockin'

    And birds need bees and ice needs whiskey
    Boys like me need girls like you to kiss me
    "Fishin' in the Dark", needs Nitty Gritty
    Under that pale moon
    Sweet tea needs that sugar stirrin'
    Small town nights need both ends burnin'
    Shades need drawin', hearts need fallin'
    Boots need knockin', knockin' boots
    Mmm, knockin' boots
    Me and you, oh (oh)
    Knockin' boots

  2. What She Wants Tonight

    She walks up, velvet rope unhooks
    She snaps her fingers and a drink comes
    She locks you down with just one look
    She's got this whole club undone

    If she's on the rebound, you ain't gonna know it
    Coming off a heartbreak, she ain't gonna show it
    She's eyes caught, red dot, locked on me, yeah

    She wants my hands on her body
    She wants to burn like she's made of fire
    Said, she ain't going home till we
    Drink every drop of Kentucky dry
    Don't even know what she'll do when she does it
    Palm of her hand, I'm hers in the blink of an eye
    She don't take no and I love
    She gets what she wants
    And I get to be what she wants tonight
    And I get to be what she wants tonight

    I get to catch all her secrets
    Sequins bouncing off flashing lights
    If she wants it then we're leaving
    Get me home, park the truck, cut the tires

    I get to be where she goes when she's lonely
    The last door of the night she's closing
    Oh, I know she could have anything but

    She wants my hands on her body
    She wants to burn like she's made of fire
    Said she ain't going home till we
    Drink every drop of Kentucky dry
    Don't even know what she'll do when she does it
    Palm of her hand, I'm hers in the blink of an eye
    She don't take no and I love
    She gets what she wants
    And I get to be what she wants tonight
    And I get to be what she wants tonight

    And I don't know how I got to be the only thing she needs right now

    She wants my hands on her body
    She wants to burn like she's made of fire
    Said she ain't going home till we
    Drink every drop of Kentucky dry
    Don't even know what she'll do when she does it
    Palm of her hand, I'm hers in the blink of an eye
    She don't take no and I love
    She gets what she wants
    And I get to be what she wants tonight
    And I get to be what she wants tonight

    And I get to be what she wants tonight, tonight

  3. Born Here Live Here Die Here

    Bunch of buddies in John Deere hats
    A little crazy but they got my back
    Know every roll-through stop sign like the back of my hand
    And every bank where the fish'll bite
    Still like putting a smile on the face
    Of a girl I've known since the second grade
    Got a kiss that's sweet like lemonade
    She's everything I'll ever need
    Another reason I'll never leave

    Born here, live here, die here
    From the roots, to the boots, to the lay me down suit
    Yeah, I'm gonna be proud to be right here
    Just like my daddy, and his daddy did too
    Ride the same roads, work the same dirt
    Go to the same church and drink the same beer
    Born here, live here, die here
    Yeah

    Everybody's gotta find their place
    Some dreams you catch, some dreams you chase
    Some people run and some people stay
    Me, I'll always be

    A born here, live here, die here
    From the roots, to the boots, to the lay me down suit
    Yeah, I'm gonna be proud to be right here
    Just like my daddy, and his daddy did too
    Ride the same roads, work the same dirt
    Go to the same church and drink the same beer
    Born here, live here, die here
    Yeah

    I'm gonna raise one up in the air tonight
    For all the folks like me
    Here's to the born here, live here, die here
    From the roots, to the boots, to the lay me down suit
    Yeah, I'm gonna be proud to be right here
    Just like my daddy and his daddy did too
    We ride the same roads, work the same dirt
    Go to the same church and drink the same beer

    Born here, live here, die here
    Born here, live here, die here
    Born here, live here, die here (die here)
    Yeah

    Born here, live here, die here
    I'll be right here

  4. One Margarita

    Everybody here ain't from here
    But we're here doin' our thing
    Lettin' go a little, little by little
    Sippin' on a frozen drink

    Tiki bars tik'n, pourin' all weekend
    Clouds ain't leakin' no rain
    Two pieces a-shakin', white caps a-breakin'
    We ain't feelin' no pain, it goes like

    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot
    Don't worry 'bout tomorrow
    Leave all your sorrow out here on the floatin' dock
    When that sun lays down, we'll be on our way
    One more barefoot round, one more last chance to say
    Hey Señorita, don't you think we need
    A salt and a Buffett song
    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita
    We'll be gone

    Ice blue skies, shades on the eyes
    To tuck the bloodshot away
    Hair of the dog, shouldn't take long
    But who cares, we got all day
    Palm trees a-leanin', sunburn a-screamin'
    But we'll all be alright, after

    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot
    Don't worry 'bout tomorrow
    Leave all your sorrow out here on the floatin' dock
    When that sun lays down, we'll be on our way
    One more barefoot round, one more last chance to say
    Hey Señorita, don't you think we need
    A salt and a Marley song
    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita
    We'll be gone
    We'll be gone

    Tiki bars tik'n, pourin' all weekend
    Clouds ain't leakin' no rain
    Two pieces a-shakin', white caps a-breakin'
    We ain't feelin' no pain, feelin' no pain
    It goes like

    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot
    Don't worry 'bout tomorrow
    Leave all your sorrow out here on the floatin' dock
    When that sun lays down, we'll be on our way
    One more barefoot round, one more last chance to say
    Hey Señorita, don't you think we need
    A salt and a Chesney song
    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita
    We'll be gone
    We'll be gone
    We'll be gone

  5. Too Drunk To Drive

    There ain't a liquor store, dive bar, or corner booth for twenty miles around
    We ain't on a boat, on a lake, in the sun with the cooler loaded down
    But suddenly, I'm feeling all impaired from the way
    you looked at me from over there
    Rolling like I'm stoned past gone, looking in your eyes

    Chorus:
    Girl, I'm too, I'm too, I'm too drunk to drive
    What do I do with you, let's lay it low tonight
    Got me high, got me right, got me flyin' 'cause you looking so fine
    I ain't had no shot, aint drank a drop
    But I'm too drunk to drive

    You can hide my keys, lock the door, maybe we can
    find something here to do
    Maybe wreck some sheets, crash your lips into mine and not even make the news
    These four walls are safer than them two lanes
    You pour 'em tall when you start whispering my my name
    Ain't no blue light line walkin' happening tonight

    Repeat Chorus

    Yeah, I'm too drunk to drive

    Repeat Chorus

    No, I ain't had a shot, ain't drank a drop
    But I'm too drunk to drive
    I'm just too drunk to drive

    I'm too drunk to drive
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    I'm too drunk to drive

  6. Build Me A Daddy
    A boy walks past a window of a glowing, 'open' sign
    Full of wooden toys and trucks and painted trains
    Rings a bell up on the counter, hands a picture to the man
    Of a kid beside a soldier smilin' away
    Said, "Sir, I've heard you can build anything"

    Could you build me a daddy?
    Strong as Superman
    Make him ten feet tall with a southern drawl
    And a crooked smile if you can
    'Cause I sure miss him
    Maybe you could bring him back
    If I walked in with him, it'd sure make mama happy
    If you could build me a daddy
    There's an old Winchester rifle back home hangin' on the wall
    He promised me, he'd teach me how to aim
    And he said, when I got older, we could work on that curveball
    I know he'd never wanna miss a game
    So, here's a little money that I've saved
    Could you build me a daddy?
    Strong as Superman
    Make him ten feet tall with a southern drawl
    And a crooked smile if you can
    I sure miss him
    Maybe you could bring him back
    If I walked in with him, it'd sure make mama happy
    If you could build me a daddy
    Give him a big heart, make his arms wide open
    I know he misses me, so Mister, I was hoping
    You build me a daddy
    Strong as Superman
    Make him ten feet tall with a southern drawl
    And a fishin' pole in his hand
    'Cause I sure miss him
    Maybe you could bring him back
    If I walked in with him, it'd sure make mama happy
    If you could build me a daddy
    Could you build me a daddy?
  7. Little Less Broken
    Of all the bars you could've alked your boots into
    Why'd it have to be the one that I picked too
    I just wanted a place to sip my way thorugh, missin' you
    You didn't see me when you walked past me
    I wasn't ready to see you this happy

    Chorus:
    Looks like I'm movin' just a little less on with this
    Looks like your world has got a little less wrong with it
    Looks like it took you just a little less time
    Looks like your heart's justa alittle less broken than mine

    A little less borken t han mine

    To hell with killin' what's left of this Walker Black
    'Cause I ain't letin' you know that I hurt this bad
    I'll just hang my head underneath this hat, and slip out the back
    I'm dealin' with not being together
    So are you but you're doin' it better

    It looks like I'm movin' just a little less on with this
    Looks like your wolrd has got a little less wrong with it
    Looks like it took you just a little less time
    Looks like your heart's just a little less broken than mine
    Maybe goodbye didn't hit you the way that it hit me
    Guess hearts don't ever break 50/50
    Oh, 'cause it

    Repeat Chorus
    A little less broken than mine
    A little less broken than mine
    A little less broken than mine
  8. For A Boat
    Everything I learned about life
    I learned out on that bank
    From gettin' up early, comin' up empty
    And good things come to those that wait

    Money doesn't grow on trees
    The difference and talking, and shootin' the breeze

    Chorus:
    I remember thinkin' wouldn't it be cool
    To have an old flat bottom and an Evinrude
    And daddy saying, "Son, don't they bit just fine right here"
    He'd say, "Love what you got buddy, not what you ain't"
    And just about then that bobber would sink
    And that outboard dream of mine would disappear
    I grew up pretty lukcy as far as lucky goes
    Too broke for a boat


    He coulda picked up an extra shift
    Or a weekend at the factory
    But every Sunday was saved for Jesus
    And Saturdays, he spent with me

    'Til that summer would fall
    I didn't know we had it all

    Repeat Chorus

    Too broke for a boat

    Repeat Chorus

    Too broke for a boat
  9. Where Are We Goin'
    Where are we goin', when we leave here
    When the music's over and the bar rusn out of beer
    If we stay too late, they're gonna kick us out
    Is it cool if I come crash at your house

    Where are we goin', the night is young
    And we're both half sober, hell-bent on having fun
    You say if we hook up, there'll be no strings attached
    Save my number, you don't have to call me back

    Let's have some cigarettes and
    Find a spot that ain't closed yet
    And if it is, we'll buy a box of wine
    I just had to talk to you
    Forgive me if this comes out rude
    You got to know it's true
    But girl you look so fine

    Where are we goin'
    If nowhere else
    There's an old field road
    Out past the shutdown Shell
    We could shine those eyes
    We can count them stars
    Borrow some signs
    Go fishing in the dark

    We'll sing some old Hank Jr. songs
    "Outlaw Women" all night long
    Make some good ol' down home memories
    There's something 'bout the sky tongiht
    SOmething 'bout your blue eyes
    Baby, you remind me of my sweetest dream
    My sweetest dream

    Where are we goin' if this is love
    There's no way to know
    But just between the two of us
    It all feels so right with you in my arms
    Where it's goin', I don't know
    But let's keep following our hearts
  10. Down To One
    We were counting one star at a time
    One fell out of the sky
    You had your eyes closed, you were wishing on 'em
    I was thinking 'bout your lips, girl and kissin' on 'em
    We were sitting in the light of the moon
    I was watching it shine on you
    Funny how time flies with a good girl
    On a good night

    Chorus:We were down to 1 AM
    Listening to one mroe song
    Thinking I want more than just one night out here with you alone
    Down to that last Bud Light in the back of that two-tone, half-ton
    My heart was telling me that one more kiss and I'd be done
    Down to one hand in mine
    Down to one beautiful smile
    I was done with the girl I want
    Straight falling in love
    Right there that night
    Down to one


    Said, we leave in one more minuteOne passed by but we didn't
    'Cause you were looking like a dream I'd ben dreaming
    I was thinking about anything but leaving
    Still feel that touch
    You were in my arms
    Soaking up that young love
    Never been that far

    Repeat Chorus

    I was saing, stay with me
    I'll be everything you need

    Repeat Chorus

    Down to one
    I was saying, stay with me
    I'll be everything you need
    Down to one, down to one
