Track Name: Alabama Cold
ALABAMA COLD

CHORUS
Nothing hurts worse than Alabama’s Cold
Gives me a look, too late I see the sign
Can’t believe I missed it / it’s coming
but once again I know
I’ve crossed her frozen line
Wondering Why

Nothin hurts worse than Alabama's Cold
Gives me that look too late I see the sign
Never saw it comin, Once again I know
I've crossed her frozen line
Wondering Why, Wondering Why

Verse 1
Alabama she got to me
Loving her was easy
Showed me things I'd never known
Took my heart and everything I owned

VERSE 2
Seasons change Alabama did too
Her heart went from warm to icy blue
We vowed our passion never would die
But now there's only coldness in her eyes

BRIDGE
I just want it how it used to be
Back when lovin her was easy

CHORUS
Nothin hurts worse than Alabama's Cold
Gives me that look too late I see the sign
Never saw it comin, Once again I know
I've crossed her frozen line
Wondering Why, Wondering Why

OUTRO
Alabama Cold's got me burnin up inside
Alabama Cold's got me wondering
Alabama Cold is buring up my mind
Wondering Why
Track Name: Drive Me To Drinkin'
DRIVE ME TO DRINKIN

You're the kind of girl that drives me to drinking

Lord you look good in those cut up blue jeans
that tight old t-shirt is quite a sight
You got that look that makes me nervous
I try to talk but my mouths gone dry

I usually got a line for all the ladies
I know what they wanna hear
But with you I need a shot of courage
A little something to cure my fear

CHORUS
Break out the whiskey bottle
I could use another box of wine
I’d even drink some fruity cocktail
I need a shot from that jar of shine
I don't know what's drivin my thinking
But you're the kind of girl that drives me to drinking

VERSE
I don't know why I'm uptight
there ain’t no explanation
I need to stop my mind from reeling
With some Liquid medication

I want to know what's on your mind
But I'm feeling agitated
Maybe I'll get the nerve to ask you
When I'm a little more intoxicated

CHORUS

BRIDGE
All the players want your attention
They’re tryin to stake their claim
If this liquor don't work no quicker
I'm gonna be out of the game

Guitar Thang

CHORUS
Our eyes meet and you're winking
All the green lights start to blinking
I still don't know what you're thinking

You're the kind of girl that drives me to drinking
Track Name: Get Me Back To Alabama
TAKE ME BACK TO ALABAMA

Verse
I'm out here on the far left coast
Trying hard to make the most
Of everything that this place can provide

There's fancy food and skinny girls
But from all that I've observed
They’re all crazy it's kind of hard to hide

Put me in the fastest lane
To where the folks are half way sane

CHORUS
Get me back to Alabama
Phoenix south to Casa Granda
It's the place I wanna be
where I can live my life carefree
I don't care which road I take
as long as I get back to the place
Where I can live the life I planned
Get me back to Alabam.

VERSE
They're all health nut wanna bes
All tofu and gluten free
I need to find something I can eat
There's skin and bones And painted tans
Whiten teeth and smokin bans
Where can I find some relief

Get me back to southern fried
Sometime soon before I die

CHORUS

GUITAR THANG

BRIDGE
Sunshine's nice but 40 days
Since it rained and there's a haze.
I don't care what folks say this sucks
I can't stand these traffic jams
I'm leaving fast as I can
Lord I hope this Chevy don't get stuck
I'm missing corn and collard greens
Southern girls in tight fit jeans

CHORUS
Get me back to Alabama
I’ll detour through south Montana
It's the place I wanna be
Where I can live my life carefree
I don't care which road I take
As long as I get back to the place
Where I can live the life I planned
Get me back to Alabam
Track Name: Go For A Ride
GO FOR A RIDE

Verse
I've been working hard pulling in overtime
You've got it bad with your daily grind
I've got something that you're gonna like
Let's warm up the car and go for a ride

CHORUS
Let's ride out to the country
hold hands just like we used to
park down by the lake where the oak tree grows
Talk about the times we've had just me and you
Spread out the blanket and hold each other close
Sing along with the radio
Leave all our troubles behind
Let's you and me Go For A Ride

VERSE
Remember the wink that was our secret sign
When we had something special in mind
We made that ol’ Chevy fly like the wind
Come on let's go do that again

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I feel like a King when you're next to me
No place on earth I'd rather be

CHORUS
Let's drive out in the country
hold hands just like we used to do
park down by the lake where the oak tree grows
talk bout the times that we've had just me and you
spread out the blanket, hold each other close
Sing along with the radio
Leave our worries behind
Let's you and me Go For A Ride

Go For A Ride (repeat out)
Track Name: It's You
IT'S YOU

Verse
A bolt of lightning lights up like ur smile
I can see the sunshine when I look in your eyes
I hope I don't mess things up this time

Verse
Did the earth move or did my heart shake
The feeling that I'm feeling can't be a mistake
Girl I hope that u don't change your mind

CHORUS
Do you know why I feel like this?
In all the world you’re the perfect fit
It's in everything you do.
It's you

Like the calm of a hurricane
We touch we kiss you call my name
So softly every time we make love

If a drop of rain fell each time I knew
that I can't get enough of you
It’d turn a river into a raging flood

CHORUS

BRIDGE
The thunder rolls and rain pours down
But I’m standing on solid
I smile about the love I’ve found
It’s you

CHORUS

It's you
Track Name: Keep Holding On
KEEP HOLDING ON

Verse
I see you slipping into the dark.
Don't know what to do where do I start
I know I can’t make this go away

You try to tell me how it feels
Riding around on your ferris wheel
Up and down trying to holding on day by day

CHORUS
When you're tired take one more step
When all hope is gone grab onto what is left
When you feel no one is there you're not alone
When it seems it’s all over, keep holding on

Verse
You're falling fast what do I do
I can't fall into your hole with you
But I’m scared of what will happen in the end

You’ve reached of point of no return
You've touched the fire and know it burns
But your hurt can heal from the pain

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You may have wandered off the path
But you're gonna make your way back
You’’ realize when you do.
The love you've always had is waiting there for you
Verse 3
Then there's a spark a ray of light
You're coming back you believe that you might
I'm standing by you doing the BEST I can

Something there always sends you back
You're strong enough to fight off the attack
Don't you see your struggles are not in vain

CHORUS
Track Name: Love Walks Away
LOVE WALKS AWAY

VERSE
You say you want a man who’s gonna love ya
Baby you ain’t letting it show
If you keep on acting crazy
Sooner or later he’s gonna let you go

VERSE
You wanna man to spend all his
Take you out all over
There ain’t enough gonna make you happy
Sooner or later he’ll be letting you down

CHORUS
Sometimes you can’t get what you want
Sometimes you take what you take
Sometimes you don’t see what’s comin
Sometimes love walks

GUITAR THANG

BRIDGE
You can’t expect something for nothing
Without getting pushed away

VERSE
You can Lie to yourself if you want to.
But it won't change the way you are.
In time they're all gonna see it
They'll all know what you're looking for

CHORUS
Sometimes you can’t get what you
Sometimes you take what you
Sometimes you cant see what’s comin
Sometimes love walks away
Track Name: NashVegas
NASHVEGAS

Verse
I was born up in the Mountains
Back in the Tennessee hills
Never thought I'd ever leave the country life
Looking for the city life thrills

I figured out how to pick a mean guitar
Wrote me a song or two
Thought I'd try to see if I could make a buck
like some other folks do, like some other folks do

CHORUS
Bright lights, big city
Wildest town east of Mississippi
Juke joints runnin up and down Broadway
Everybody hopin that they’re gonna get a big break
You start out tryin to imagine and
Wind up living in a great big mansion
That's why this town is so famous
Everybody calls it NashVegas

Verse
Quit my job packed up everything I owned
Jumped in my four wheel drive
I'd never been out of Jefferson County
Never even thought I would try

Drove into town looking for a place to play
Got a gig for nickels and dimes
Wadn't too long had an offer for a road job
Didn't take me long to decide
Didn't take me long to decide

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You hear the songs they’re playing on the radio
This is where they wrote that country gold

GUITAR THANG

A big time star with a rhinestone suit on
Hired me to open his act
Got me some cash and a sweet heart record deal
since then I' never looked back
You know I never looked back


CHORUS

I was born up in the Mountains
Back in the Tennessee hills
Track Name: The Girl's Alright
THE GIRL’S ALL RIGHT

Verse
I was feelin sort low down headed for a melt down
Tryin to shake off another broken romance
My buddy had just the thing, took me to this wing ding
I had a drink or two and I was ready to dance

I saw this little lassy, lookin mighty sassy
Standin in the corner lookin over at me
I might be sort of slow but there’s a thing or 2 I wanna know
This time around I want a girl that Satisfies me

CHORUS
Can she catch a fish and can she shoot a shotgun
Does she have boat or have a friend who's got one
If she's got a dog and if he don't bite
Then I'll think the girl is alright, she’ll be alright

VERSE
We kissed until the mornin, her lips were habit formin
I was gettin hooked on her personality
I was fallin fast so I got the nerve to ask
Would she be willin to go huntin with me

She smiled a little smile looked me in the eye
and gave me the answer I guess I shoulda guessed
she whispered in my ear and it all became so clear
why she was wearin cammo and a fancy huntin vest

CHORUS
She can catch a fish and She can shoot a shotgun
She don’t have boat, but you know her daddy’s got one
She's got a dog and he don't even bite
I believe that THIS girl is alright, You know she's all right

She can catch a fish and She can shoot a shotgun
She don’t have truck, but I bet her Momma’s got one
She's got a REAL dog and he don't even bite
I believe the girl is alright, yeah this girl is alright you know she’s all right
