• Chicken Fried

    You know I like my chicken fried
    And cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fit just right
    And the radio on

    Well I was raised up beneath the shade of a Georgia Pine
    And that's home you know
    Sweet tea, pecan pie, and homemade wine
    Where the peaches grow
    And my house it's not much to talk about
    But it's filled with love that's grown in southern ground

    And a little bit of chicken fried
    Cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fit just right
    And the radio on
    I love to see the sun rise
    See the love in my woman's eyes
    Feel the touch of a precious child
    And know a mother's love

    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most
    Not where you live, what you drive or the price tag on your clothes
    There's no dollar sign on a peace of mind, this I've come to know
    So if you agree, have a drink with me,
    Raise you glasses for a toast

    To a little bit of chicken fried
    And cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fit just right
    And the radio on
    I love to see the sun rise
    See the love in my woman's eyes
    Feel the touch of a precious child
    And know a mother's love

    I thank god for my life
    And for the stars and stripes
    May freedom forever fly, let it ring.
    Salute the ones who died
    The ones that give their lives
    So we don't have to sacrifice
    All the things we love

    Like our chicken fried
    And cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fit just right
    And the radio on
    I love to see the sun rise
    See the love in my woman's eyes
    Feel the touch of a precious child
    And know a mother's love

    Get a little chicken fried
    And cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fit just right
    And the radio on
    I love to see the sun rise
    See the love in my woman's eyes
    Feel the touch of a precious child
    And know a mother's love

  • Whatever It Is

    She's got eyes that cut you like a
    Knife and lips that taste like sweet red wine
    And her pretty legs go to heaven every time
    She got a gentle way that puts me at ease
    When she walks in a room I can hardly breathe
    Got a devastating smile knock a grown man to his knees

    She's got whatever it is
    It blows me away
    She's everything I want to say to a woman
    But I couldn't find the words to say
    She's got whatever it is
    I don't know what to do
    And every time I try and tell her how I feel
    it comes out "I love you"
    You got whatever it is

    You know I've never been the type that would ever want to stay
    Bring 'em home at night and they're gone the next day
    But that all changed when she walked into my life
    People ask me what it is
    I tell them I don't know
    There's just something about the woman makes my heart go haywire
    She's gonna be my wife

    She's got whatever it is
    It blows me away
    She's everything I want to say to a woman
    But I couldn't find the words to say
    She's got whatever it is
    I don't know what to do
    Because every time I try and tell her how I feel
    it comes out "I love you"
    You got whatever it is

    When she loves me
    Girl that's how I feel
    When she loves me I'm on top of the world
    Because when she loves me I can live forever
    When she loves me I am untouchable

    She's got whatever it is
    It blows me away
    She's everything I wanted to say to a woman
    but couldn't find the words to say
    She's got whatever it is
    I don't know what to do
    Because every time I try and tell her how I feel
    it comes out "I love you"
    You got whatever it is

  • Toes

    I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
    Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
    Life is good today. Life is good today.

    Well, the plane touched down just about 3 o'clock
    And the city's still on my mind
    Bikinis and palm trees danced in my head
    I was still in the baggage line
    Concrete and cars
    Are their own prison bars
    Like this life I'm living in
    But the plane brought me farther.
    I'm surrounded by water
    And I'm not going back again

    I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
    Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
    Life is good today. Life is good today.

    Adios and vaya con dios
    Yeah, I'm leaving GA
    And if it weren't for tequila and pretty senoritas
    I'd have no reason to stay
    Adios and vaya con dios
    Yeah, I'm leaving GA
    Gonna lay in the hot sun and roll a big fat one
    And grab my guitar and play

    Four days flew by
    Like a drunk Friday night
    As the summer drew to an end
    They can't believe
    That I just couldn't leave
    And I bid adieu to my friends
    Because my bartender -- she's from the islands
    Her body's been kissed by the sun
    And coconut replaces the smell of the bar
    And I don't know if it's her or the rum

    I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
    Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
    Life is good today. Life is good today.

    Adios and vaya con dios
    A long way from GA
    Yeah, and all the muchachas -- they call me "big poppa" when I throw pesos their way
    Adios and vaya con dios
    A long way from GA
    Someone do me a favor and pour me some Jaeger
    [Another version: "Hey, boss, do me a favor and pass me the Jaeger"]
    And I'll grab my guitar and play

    Adios and vaya con dios
    Going home now to stay
    The senoritas don't care-o when there's no dinero
    [Another version: "'Cause senoritas don't care-o when there's no dinero"]
    I got no money to stay
    [Another version: "You got no money to stay"]
    Adios and vaya con dios
    Going home now to stay
    Just gonna drive up by the lake
    [Another version: "I'm just gonna kick it on the lake"]

    I put my ass in a lawn chair, toes in the clay
    [Another version: "With my ass in a lawn chair, toes in the clay"]
    Not a worry in the world, a PBR on the way
    Life is good today. Life is good today.

  • Highway 20 Ride

    I ride east every other Friday but if I had it my way
    Days would not be wasted on this drive
    And I want so bad to hold you
    Son, there's things I haven't told you
    Your mom and me just couldn't get along

    So I'll drive
    And I think about my life
    And wonder why I'll slowly die inside
    Everytime I turn that truck around, right at the Georgia line
    and I count the days and the miles back home to you on that Highway 20 ride

    A day might come and you'll realize that if you could see through my eyes
    There was no other way to work it out
    And a part of you might hate me
    But son please don't mistake me
    For a man that didn't care at all

    So I drive
    And I think about my life
    And wonder why I'll slowly die inside
    Everytime I turn that truck around, right at the Georgia line
    and I count the days and the miles back home to you on that Highway 20 ride

    So when you drive
    And the years go flying by
    I hope you smile
    If I ever cross your mind
    It was a pleasure of my life
    And I cherished every time
    And my whole world
    It begins and ends with you
    On that Highway 20 ride....

  • As She’s Walking Away (Feat. Alan Jackson)

    We never spoke a word
    But every thought she had I heard
    From across the room
    We were standing face to face
    I couldn't find the words to say
    Gimme one more move

    I don't even know her name
    I guess foolish pride's to blame

    Now I'm falling in love as she's walking away
    And my heart won't tell my mind
    To tell my mouth what it should say
    I may have lost this battle
    Live to fight another day
    Now I'm fallin in love as she's walkin away

    Wise man next to me did say
    about the one that got away
    Son I missed my chance
    Don't you let regret take place
    Of the dreams you have to chase
    Ask her to dance
    (Go on son)

    You might fall down on your face
    Roll the dice and have some faith

    But don't be fallin in love as she's walkin away
    When your heart won't tell your mind
    To tell your mouth what it should say
    May have lost this battle
    Live to fight another day
    Don't be fallin in love as she's walkin away

    You might fall down on your face
    Roll the dice and have some faith

    Don't be fallin in love as she's walkin away
    When your heart won't tell your mind
    To tell your mouth what it should say
    May have lost this battle
    Live to fight another day
    Don't be fallin
    Fallin in
    Fallin in love as she's walkin away

  • Colder Weather

    She'd trade Colorado if he'd take her with him
    Closes the door before the winter lets the cold in,
    And wonders if her love is strong enough to make him stay,
    She's answered by the tail lights shining through the window pane

    [Chorus:]
    He said I wanna see you again
    But I'm stuck in colder weather
    Maybe tomorrow will be better
    Can I call you then?
    She said you're ramblin' man
    You ain't ever gonna change
    You got a gypsy soul to blame
    And you were born for leavin'.

    At a truck stop diner just outside of Lincoln,
    The night is black as the coffee he was drinkin',
    And in the waitress' eyes he sees the same ol' light a-shinin',
    He thinks of Colorado and the girl he left behind him

    [Chorus:]
    He said I wanna see you again
    But I'm stuck in colder weather
    Maybe tomorrow will be better
    Can I call you then?
    She said you're ramblin' man
    You ain't ever gonna change
    You got a gypsy soul to blame
    And you were born for leavin' (born for leavin')

    Well, it's a winding road
    When you're in the lost and found
    You're a lover – I'm a runner
    And we go 'round 'n 'round
    And I love you but I leave you
    I don't want you but I need you
    You know it's you who calls me back here, baby

    Oh I wanna see you again
    But I'm stuck in colder weather
    Maybe tomorrow will be better
    Can I call you then?
    Cause I'm a ramblin' man
    I ain't ever gonna change (I ain't ever gonna change)
    I got a gypsy soul to blame
    And I was born for leavin' (born for leavin')

    When I close my eyes I see you
    No matter where I am
    I can smell your perfume through these whispering pines
    I'm with your ghost again
    It's a shame about the weather
    But I know soon we'll be together
    And I can't wait 'til then
    I can't wait 'til then

  • Knee Deep (Feat. Jimmy Buffett)

    Gonna put the the world away for a minute
    Pretend I don't live in it
    Sunshine gonna wash my blues away

    Had sweet love but I lost it
    She got too close so I fought her
    Now I'm lost in the world trying to find me a better way

    Wishing I was knee deep in the water somewhere
    Got the blue sky breeze and it don't seem fair
    Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair
    Sunrise there's a fire in the sky
    Never been so happy
    Never felt so high
    And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

    Wrote a note said be back in a minute
    Bought a boat and I sailed off in it
    Don't think anybody gonna miss me anyway

    Mind on a permanent vacation
    The ocean is my only medication
    Wishing my condition ain't ever gonna go away

    Cause now I'm knee deep in the water somewhere
    Got the blue sky breeze blowing wind through my hair
    Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair
    Sunrise there's a fire in the sky

    Never been so happy
    Never felt so high
    And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

    This champagne shore washing over me
    It's a sweet sweet life living by the salty sea
    One day you could be as lost as me
    Change you're geography
    Maybe you might be

    Knee deep in the water somewhere
    Got the blue sky breeze blowing wind through my hair
    Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair
    Sunrise there's a fire in the sky
    Never been so happy
    Never felt so high
    And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

    Come on in the water it's nice
    Find yourself a little slice
    Grab a backpack of lies
    You never know until you try
    When you lose yourself
    You find the key to paradise

  • Keep Me In Mind

    How come all the pretty girls like you are taken baby
    I've been looking for someone like you to save me
    Life's too easy to be so damn complicated
    Take your time and I'll be waitin'

    [Chorus:]
    Keep me in mind
    Somewhere down the road you might get lonely
    Keep me in mind
    And I pray someday that you will love me only

    I think about you somedays
    And the way I would lay and waste a day after day with you
    We always go our separate ways
    But no one can love you baby the way I do

    [Chorus:]
    Keep me in mind
    Somewhere down the road you might get lonely
    Keep me in mind
    And I pray someday that you will love me only

    [Bridge:]
    Well the world can be real tough
    Find shelter in me
    If there's no one else to love
    Keep me in mind

    If ever you wanted me, I'll be your man
    I'd be a fool to let you go with someone else
    Whatever you want from me, I'll be your man
    I'd give it all up just to have you for myself

    [Chorus:]
    Keep me in mind
    Somewhere down the road you might get lonely
    Keep me in mind
    And I pray someday that you will love me only

    Well the world can be real tough
    Why don't you hold on to me
    When there's no one else to love
    Keep me in mind
    (Keep me in mind)
    And I'll hold you darling
    (Keep me in mind)
    I'll be your man
    (Keep me in mind)
    I'll hold you darling
    (Keep me in mind)
    C'mon little mama
    Put it on me

  • No Hurry

    You know my old car needs washing
    And the front yard needs a trim
    And the telephone keeps ringing
    And the bossman knows I know its him
    And the bills ain't gonna pay themselves
    No matter anyway
    Cause I ain't in no hurry today

    There's nothing wrong with an old cane fishing pole
    And the smell of early spring
    Sit down in a fold-up easy chair
    On a quiet shady river bank
    Let the world go on without me
    Wouldn't have it any other way
    Cause I ain't in no hurry today

    Ain't in no hurry
    I'd Be a fool now to worry
    About all those things I can't change
    And the time that I borrow
    Can wait till tomorrow
    Cause I ain't in no hurry today

    When I must return
    To the cold cold ground
    Have 'em take their time
    When they lay this sinner down

    Heaven knows that I ain't perfect
    I've raised a little cain
    And I plan to raise a whole lot more
    Before I hear those angels sing
    (Gonna get right with the lord)
    But there'll be hell to pay
    But I ain't in no hurry

    Ain't in no hurry
    Be a fool now to worry
    About all those things I can't change
    And the time that I borrow
    Can wait till tomorrow
    Cause I ain't in no hurry
    Ain't in no hurry
    Ain't in no hurry today

  • The Wind

    30,000 feet above
    The city where I fell in love with you
    And the fadin' concrete skyline
    Brings an urban lullaby that still rings true
    When I passed you on the street that day
    Should've let that red scarf fly away
    Like any chance I had of keepin' you
    Like the Northern wind a blowin'
    Yeah my lonely heart was frozen
    Never knew I'd find a way to break yours, too.

    Where the wind blows babe, you can bet
    I'll be riding high with it
    Holdin' on for my dear life just like I always did.
    Close your eyes babe, take a breath
    Say my name and I'll be there
    My love will find you anywhere
    Anywhere my love

    The city lights look like a country sky
    Like staring at the stars turned upside down.
    I wish I may, I wish I might
    Find it in your heart to stick around.
    I hate it had to end this way
    Tomorrow is a brand new day
    And the chances here at love are precious few
    Someone's out there waiting
    For a sweet good timing lady
    To make you smile the way I always wanted to.

    Where the wind blows babe, you can bet
    I'll be riding high with it
    Holdin' on for my dear life just like I always did.
    Close your eyes babe, take a breath
    Say my name and I'll be there
    My love will find you anywhere
    Anywhere my love

    So I'll fly all night
    Our memory's my lullaby
    That love won't lie
    If it's love done right
    You'll be waiting on the other side
    Arms open wide
    If love don't lie
    Lie
    We can fly

    Where the wind blows babe, you can bet
    I'll be riding high with it
    Holdin' on for my dear life just like I always did.
    Close your eyes babe, take a breath
    Say my name and I'll be there
    My love will find you anywhere
    Anywhere, my love will find you anywhere
    Anywhere, my love will find you anywhere
    Anywhere my love

  • Jump Right In

    The Southern wind sings again an island lullaby

    Baby powder beach under my feet has got me rolling
    And the breeze through crackling leaves like a daytime campfire burning
    And the ship is off to sea
    And the wake is a churning
    As the Southern wind sings again an island lullaby

    You can jump right in
    Let the music pull you in
    You can jump right in
    Oh and lose yourself again
    As the Southern wind sings again a island lullaby

    There's a place the locals go and no one knows where to find it
    And the river starts to flow inside the clouds of Misty Mountain
    The water from this stone below becomes a blue-green fountain
    As the Southern wind sings again an island lullaby

    You can jump right in
    Let the music pull you in
    You can jump right in
    Oh and lose yourself again
    As the Southern wind sings again an island lullaby

    La la la la la la
    La la la la la
    La la la la la la
    La la la la la

    You can find me where the music meets the ocean
    If you get the notion
    Stop on by and play a while
    Simple tune to get your love light glowing
    Keep your heart wide open
    Disappear just like the tide
    Let it roll on by

    And jump right in
    Let the music pull you in
    You can jump right in
    Oh and lose yourself again
    As the Southern wind sings again an island lullaby
    The Southern wind sings again an island lullaby
    Island lullaby

  • Goodbye In Her Eyes

    I could tell that it was over
    When her lips met mine
    It was an emptiness in her voice
    Hesitation when she smiled
    She didn't have to say a word
    It was just so plain to see
    She had found what she'd been looking for
    And I knew it wasn't me

    I saw goodbye in her eyes
    I don't think I can change it
    There's no way to disguise
    We will never make it

    Sometimes I feel like a clown
    Who can't wash off his make-up
    The life she wanted ‒ it was gone
    Prince Charming ‒ I wasn't
    But I would trade a thousand Babylons
    To be in her arms tomorrow
    Oh, but like the tide her love has come and gone
    And it's time for me to go

    I saw goodbye in her eyes
    I don't think I can change it
    There's no way to disguise
    We will never make it

    Now she sees right through me

    Should I hold on to what we've got
    Is it just a waste of time?
    One thing that I know for sure
    I saw goodbye in her eyes

    I saw goodbye in her eyes

    I know you got somebody new now
    All my candles have burned out
    He's gonna love the way you shine
    So did I
    So don't smile at me it ain't what you mean
    (Goodbye)

    With that goodbye in your eyes
    I know that I can't change it (now you see right through me)
    There's no way to disguise
    We will never make it

    I saw goodbye in your eyes
    I know that I can't change it (now you see right through me, goodbye in your eyes!)
    Should I hold on
    We will never make it (now you see right through me, goodbye in your eyes!)

    Should I hold on
    Is it just a waste of time?
    One thing that I know for sure
    I saw goodbye in your eyes
    I saw goodbye in your eyes
    I know that it's over
