Born Here Live Here Die Here Deluxe Edition 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 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 a 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

    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're looking so fine
    I ain't had no shot, ain't 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 name
    Ain't no blue light, line walkin', happening tonight

    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're looking so fine
    I ain't had no shot, ain't drank a drop
    But I'm too drunk to drive
    Yeah, I'm too drunk to drive

    Yeah 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're looking so fine
    I ain't had no shot, ain't drank a drop
    But I'm too drunk to drive
    No, I ain't had a shot, ain't drank a drop
    But I'm too drunk to drive (woo)
    I'm just too drunk to drive
    I'm too drunk to drive
    Yeah, 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 walked your boots into
    Why'd it have to be the one that I picked too?
    I just wanted a place to sip my way through missin' you
    You didn't see me when you walked past me
    I wasn't ready to see you this happy

    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 just a little less broken than mine
    A little less broken than mine (a little less broken than mine)

    To hell with killin' what's left of this Walker Black
    'Cause I ain't lettin' 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 world 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 fifty-fifty

    Oh, 'cause it 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's takin' me a little more time
    'Cause baby, your heart's just a little less broken, a little less broken than mine
    A little less broken than mine (a little less broken than mine)

    A little less broken than mine (yeah)
    A little less broken than mine (a little less broken than mine)
    A little less broken than mine
    A little less broken than mine (a little less broken than mine)
    A little less broken than mine
    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 in talking, and shootin' the breeze

    I remember thinkin', wouldn't it be cool
    To have an old flat bottom and an Evinrude
    And daddy saying, "Son, don't they bite 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 lucky 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

    I remember thinkin', wouldn't it be cool
    To have an old flat bottom and an Evinrude
    And daddy saying, "Son, don't they bite 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 lucky as far as lucky goes
    Too broke for a boat
    Too broke for a boat

    I remember thinkin', wouldn't it be cool
    To have an old flat bottom and an Evinrude
    And daddy saying, "Son, don't they bite 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 lucky as far as lucky goes
    Too broke for a boat
    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 runs 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 tonight
    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

    We were down to 1 AM
    Listening to one more 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 minute
    One passed by but we didn't
    'Cause you were looking like a dream I've been dreaming
    I was thinking 'bout anything but leaving
    Still feel that touch
    You were in my arms
    Soaking up that young love
    Never been that far

    Down to 1 AM
    Listening to one more 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

    I was saying, "Stay with me
    I'll be everything you need"

    We were way past 1 AM
    Listening to one more 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

    Down to one
    I was saying, "Stay with me
    I'll be everything you need"
    Down to one
    Down to one

  11. Country Does

    Old boat, new boat
    Red boat, blue boat
    Only thing better than one
    Is two boats
    Big church, small church
    Come one, come all church

    New sound, old sound
    Small town, old town
    If you’re drinking, better have enough
    For the whole town
    Red dirt, clay dirt
    Trying to get to paydirt

    Country did as country does
    Long as the salt gets licked

    And the corn grows thick
    And the sun comes up
    Country is as country was
    And ‘round here, the good old days ain’t far away
    ‘Cause they can’t change us
    Proud of your family, proud of your name
    Proud of the mud running through your veins
    They say nothing don’t ever stay the way it was
    But country does
    Country does

    Old folks, kinfolks
    Those folks, them folks
    Talk about us
    Gonna take it on the chin folks
    Farm work, hard work
    Kids do the yardwork

    Slow song, sad song
    Growing up on dad’s songs
    Long as there’s fiddle
    Hell, there really ain’t a bad song
    Cold beer, cheap beer
    Plant our roots and our boots and our feet here

    Country did as country does
    Long as the salt gets licked

    And the corn grows thick
    And the sun comes up
    Country is as country was
    And ‘round here, the good old days ain’t far away
    ‘Cause they can’t change us
    Proud of your family, proud of your name
    Proud of the mud running through your veins
    They say nothing don’t ever stay the way it was
    But country does
    Country does

    Country did as country does
    Long as the salt gets licked

    And the corn grows thick
    And the sun comes up
    Country is as country was
    And ‘round here, the good old days ain’t far away
    ‘Cause they can’t change us
    Proud of your family, proud of your name
    Proud of the mud running through your veins
    They say nothing don’t ever stay the way it was
    But country does
    Country does

    Country does

    Proud of your family, proud of your name
    Proud of the mud running through your veins

    Proud of your family, proud of your name
    Proud of the mud running through your veins

  12. Drink A Little Whiskey Down

    I’m back takin’ the long way when I go home at night
    And your memory don’t dance down the hallway when I flip on the light
    I’m back spendin’ time with my buddies
    A little rowdy ain’t hurtin’ nobody
    Yeah, I’ve come a long way gettin’ over us
    But now and then when your name comes up

    I drink a little whiskey, drink a little whiskey down
    When the wonderin’ if you miss me missin’ you comes around
    Yeah, it don’t happen like it used to happen
    But when it does, I twist off a cap and
    Drink a little whiskey, drink a little whiskey down

    No more 2 a.m. phone calls to act like I’m checkin’ in
    No more runnin’ the other way when I run into your friends
    I don’t need your touch, need your smile
    Except for every little once in a while then

    I drink a little whiskey, drink a little whiskey down
    When the wonderin’ if you miss me missin’ you comes around
    Yeah, it don’t happen like it used to happen
    But when it does, I twist off a cap and
    Drink a little whiskey, drink a little whiskey down

    Drink a little whiskey down

    Yeah, just enough to get you gone
    Grab a glass and pour one strong

    I drink a little whiskey, drink a little whiskey down
    When the wonderin’ if you miss me missin’ you comes around
    Yeah, it don’t happen like it used to happen
    But when it does, I twist off a cap and
    Drink a little whiskey, drink a little whiskey down

    Drink a little whiskey down
    Drink a little whiskey down
    Drink a little whiskey down
    Drink a little whiskey down

  13. Waves

    It’s like the sun went down just to frame your face
    Like they played that song just to see you sway
    Like that old surf shop had you in mind
    With what you got on, making those tan lines

    It’s like the ocean knows we’re laying
    On this beach tonight
    It’s like the sand’s been waiting
    For you to come alive cause

    You were made for summer
    Just like these stars we’re under
    Were made for lighting this July sky up
    Blanket down made for me and you tied up
    All night long, over and over
    Crash into me and pull me closer
    Kiss by kiss, one after another
    Don’t let go, baby let this summer
    Just keep on coming in waves
    Keep coming in waves
    Keep on coming in waves
    Keep coming in waves

    Wish I could bottle up the taste on your lips
    That margarita saltwater sunburned sip
    It’s like I feel that sun right next to me
    Yeah, girl your touch is a hundred degrees

    Boardwalks were made for dancing
    And flip flops were made to lose like
    This night was meant to happen
    And girl I was made for you like

    You were made for summer
    Just like these stars we’re under
    Were made for lighting this July sky up
    Blanket down made for me and you tied up
    All night long, over and over
    Crash into me and pull me closer
    Kiss by kiss, one after another
    Don’t let go, baby let this summer
    Just keep on coming in waves
    Keep coming in waves
    Keep on coming in waves
    Keep coming in waves

    Keep on coming in waves
    Keep coming in waves
    Keep on coming in waves
    Keep coming in waves
    Baby

    You were made for summer
    Just like these stars we’re under
    Were made for lighting this July sky up
    Blanket down made for me and you tied up
    All night long, over and over
    Crash into me and pull me closer
    Kiss by kiss, one after another
    Don’t let go, baby let this summer
    Just keep on coming in waves
    Keep coming in waves
    Keep on coming in waves
    Keep coming in waves

  14. Bill Dance

    This ain’t no lie
    Saved all my birthday money up
    Put it down on a rod and reel
    I got my green and tan Plano loaded up
    Permission to fish behind that old sawmill
    Momma said watch for snakes
    Daddy said shut the gate
    Brother said they’re biting on the zoom black and red flake
    Laying in the bed that night
    I swear I could barely sleep

    ‘Cause all I ever wanted to be was Bill Dance
    Fishing for a living
    Saturday morning on television
    A Georgia boy learning how to hook big bass
    From a large mouth legend in a Tennessee hat
    Taught me how to tie ‘em on
    Taught me how to take ‘em off
    Taught me how to catch ‘em when they said they couldn’t be caught
    Nobody ever had to worry about me
    ‘Cause all I ever wanted to be was Bill Dance
    While other boys were playing ball and knocking heads
    I was floating on the Muckalee
    While rebel kids were smoking, stealing cigarettes
    I was fishing in them cypress trees
    Paddle and a Jon Boat, 9 pound, no joke
    Got him in the net cause I didn’t get my line broke
    Using every trick in the book Daddy ever taught me

    ‘Cause all I ever wanted to be was Bill Dance
    Fishing for a living
    Saturday morning on television

    From a large mouth legend in a Tennessee hat
    Taught me how to tie ‘em on
    Taught me how to take ‘em off
    Taught me how to catch ‘em when they said they couldn’t be caught

    Paddle and a Jon Boat, 9 pound, no joke
    Got him in the net cause I didn’t get my line broke
    Using every trick in the book Daddy ever taught me

    There’s a lot of heroes out there these days
    But if you ask me mine, there’s only one name I’ll say

    Bill Dance, fishing for a living
    Saturday morning on television
    A Georgia boy learning how to hook big bass
    From the best damn fisherman the world’s ever had
    Taught me how to tie ‘em on
    Taught me how to take ‘em off
    Taught me how to catch ‘em when they said they couldn’t be caught
    Nobody ever had to worry about me
    ‘Cause all I ever wanted to be was Bill Dance

    Yeah, the sun is just starting to shine up over the treetops
    It’s gonna be a beautiful day, it’s plain to see

  15. Up
    Early in the morning wakin’ that sun
    Up
    Fillin’ that coffee crankin’ that tractor
    Up
    Prayin’ it rains down on the devil’s dust
    Them rows come poppin’

    Up
    In the sky, there’s a guy
    Lookin’ down on us
    Lookin’ up
    Our whole life, raised up right
    In a town nobody knows
    What a way to grow

    Up
    Rollin’ round town in a hand me down old pick
    Up
    Pullin’ in the driveway pickin’ that pretty thang
    Up
    Just layin’ low where heaven and a dirt road touch
    Holdin' a cold one

    Up
    In the sky, there’s a guy
    Lookin’ down on us
    Lookin’ up
    Our whole life, raised up right
    In a town nobody knows
    What a way to grow

    Up
    On a Sunday pond bank tearin’ that crank bait
    Up
    Livin’ for a Friday, runnin’ that scoreboard
    Up
    Keepin’ that faith, waitin’ on the day he calls us

    Up
    In the sky, there’s a guy
    Lookin’ down on us
    Lookin’ up
    Our whole life, raised up right
    In a town nobody knows
    What a way to grow

  16. Floatin' This Creek

    Put in this morning at first light
    Had a biscuit on my way down
    I was sittin’ there waitin’ on the first bite
    From a rainbow or a brown
    Anchor down at the bridge, gonna try a new midge
    There was traffic flyin’ by
    Taillights glowin’ red thirty feet overhead
    But it felt like a thousand miles

    I’m just floatin’ this creek
    And takin’ it slow
    Tryin’ to catch somethin’ big
    Sip somethin’ cold
    I’d be a liar if I said I had a plan today
    ‘Cept watch these banks roll by, take it all in
    Don’t get too deep, don’t forget where I been
    Nothin’ but time to see where it takes me
    Floatin’ this creek

    That rush hour traffic kinda slowed down
    Bout the time that the fish did too
    Just me and this ol’ green boat now
    Nothin’ but nothin’ to do
    So I broke out a cold one, called my buddies, told ‘em
    Slipped up and caught a state record
    That’s a little white lie, he was good eatin’ size
    But I like my story better

    I’m just floatin’ this creek
    And takin’ it slow
    Tryin’ to catch somethin’ big
    Sip somethin’ cold
    I’d be a liar if I said I had a plan today
    ‘Cept watch these banks roll by, take it all in
    Don’t get too deep, don’t forget where I been
    Nothin’ but time to see where it takes me
    Floatin’ this creek

    Put my boat back on the trailer, eased out on the blacktop
    Kinda sucks but I gotta make a dollar
    I’m feeling pretty good so I won’t bitch
    ‘Cause in the morning when I’m diggin’ that ditch

    I’m just floatin’ this creek
    And takin’ it slow
    Tryin’ to catch somethin’ big
    Sip somethin’ cold
    I’d be a liar if I said I had a plan today
    ‘Cept watch these banks roll by, take it all in
    Don’t get too deep, don’t forget where I been
    Nothin’ but time to see where it takes me
    Floatin’ this creek

    Floatin’ this creek
