Lyrics

  • 1. Hicktown

    You like the way that sounds?

    Little Jimmy Jackson is jackin’ up his Bronco
    He’s gonna lay a little rubber later on at the truck pull
    All the girls are getting’ pretty sprayin’ on the White Rain
    Yeah they’re gonna get a rowdy tonight down at the football game
    Yeah

    (Chorus:)
    We let it rip when we got the money
    Let it roll if we got the gas
    It gets wild yeah but that’s the way we get down
    In a Hicktown

    Well you can see the neighbors butt crack nailing on his shingles
    And his woman’s’ smokin’ Pall Mall’s watchin’ Laura Ingalls
    And Granny’s getting’ lit she’s headin’ out to bingo
    Yeah my buddies and me are goin’ muddin’ down on Blue Hole Road
    You know You know

    (Chorus:)
    We let it rip when we got the money
    Let it roll if we got the gas
    It gets wild yeah but that’s the way we get down
    In a Hicktown

    (Bridge)

    We hear folks in the city party in Martini Bars
    And they like to show off in their fancy foreign cars
    Out here in the boondocks we buy beer at Amoco
    And crank our Kraco speakers with that country radio

    (Chorus:)
    We let it rip when we got the money
    Let it roll if we got the gas
    It gets wild yeah but that’s the way we get down
    Oh Oh We let it rip when we got the money
    Let it roll if we got the gas
    Its buck wild yeah but that’s the way we get down
    In a Hicktown
    In a Hicktown
    It’s the way we get down
    In a Hicktown
    Yeah in a Hicktown

    Oh we aint finished yet
    We got you’re country boys and you’re redneck girls
    It’s the party heard round the world
    Right here in Hicktown
    Yeah In Hicktown
    The whole town’s gettin’ down

  • 2. Amarillo Sky

    He gets up before the dawn
    Packs a lunch and a thermos full of coffee
    It's another day in the dusty haze
    Those burnin' rays are wearing down his body
    And diesel's worth the price of gold
    And it's the cheapest grain he's ever sold
    But he's still holding on

    CHORUS
    He just takes the tractor another round
    And pulls the plow across the ground
    And sends up another prayer
    He says Lord I never complain I never ask why
    But please don't let my dream run dry
    Underneath, Underneath this
    Amarillo sky

    That hail storm back in '83
    Sure did take a toll on his family
    But he stayed strong and carried on
    Just like his dad and grandad did before him
    On his knees every night he prays
    Please let my crops and children grow
    Cause that's all he's ever known

    CHORUS
    He just takes the tractor another round
    And pulls the plow across the ground
    And sends up another prayer
    He says Lord I never complain I never ask why
    But please don't let my dream run dry
    Underneath, Underneath this
    Amarillo sky

    And he takes the tractor another round
    Another round, another round
    And he takes the tractor another round
    Another round
    He says I never complain I never ask why
    But please don't let my dreams run dry
    Underneath, underneath this
    Amarillo Sky

    Underneath this
    Amarillo sky

  • 3. Why

    It's 3 AM and I finally say
    I'm sorry for acting that way
    I didn't really mean to make you cry
    Oh baby, sometimes I wonder why

    CHORUS
    Does it always have to come down
    To you leaving
    Before I'll say "I love you"
    Why do I always use the words
    That cut the deepest
    When I know how much it hurts you
    Oh baby why, do I do that to you

    I know I'd never let you walk away
    So why do I push you 'til you break
    And why are you always on theverge of good-bye
    Before I'll show you how I really feel inside

    CHORUS
    Does it always have to come down
    To you leaving
    Before I'll say "I love you"
    Why do I always use the words
    That cut the deepest
    When I know how much it hurts you
    Oh baby why, do I do that to you

    Why do I always use the words that cut the deepest
    When I know how much it hurts you
    Oh baby why, do I do that to you
    Why do I do that to you

  • 4. Even If I Wanted To

    I'm on the brink; I can barely think,
    With all of these thoughts runnin' through my head.
    Wonderin' if I did you wrong?
    No way, I did you wrong.

    Every night, I try to justify,
    All the angry things I said, oh, but I can't take 'em back.
    No, I can't do that.
    I was wrong, oh, but now you're gone.

    An' I can't hide what I feel inside,
    An' just stop lovin' you even if I wanted to.
    I can't hold on, but lettin' go,
    Is something I can't do,
    Is something I can't do,
    Even if I wanted to.

    All the times I sat and watched you cry,
    When I should have held you close, made sure that you know,
    How much I cared but I was never there...
    I was wrong an' now you've moved on.

    I can't hide what I feel inside,
    An' just stop lovin' you even if I wanted to.
    I can't hold on, but lettin' go,
    Is something I can't do,
    Is something I can't do,
    Even if I wanted to.
    Even if I wanted to.

    Yeah, I can't hide what I feel inside, (What I feel inside.)
    An' just stop lovin' you even if I wanted to.
    I can't hold on, but lettin' go, (Lettin' go.)
    Is something I can't do,
    Is something I can't do,
    Even if I wanted to.
    Even if I wanted to

  • 5. Lonesome USA

    Drove half way to town last night an' I turned around,
    In a field of fireflies makin' such a lonely sound.
    As my headlights flashed on a mailbox by the road,
    I realized that I was livin' in a new zip code.

    Well, I'm livin' in Lonesome, USA...
    Population one since yesterday.
    Livin' and dyin' in the hell I made since you been gone.
    Right now, my mind's in another state;
    Ain't enough heart here left to break.
    I'm livin' in Lonesome, Lonesome, USA.

    I never knew the sound of silence could be so loud.
    It's hard getting used to livin' in an empty house.
    Yeah, I know I can come an' go any time I please,
    But there's somethin' I miss about you waitin' up on me.

    Well, I'm livin' in Lonesome, USA...
    Population one since yesterday.
    Livin' and dyin' in the hell I made since you been gone.
    Right now, my mind's in another state;
    Ain't enough heart here left to break.
    I'm livin' in Lonesome, Lonesome, USA.

    Hey, I could drive all night an' be right here where I am,
    And still be just as lost till you come back.
    Hey, I look around here an' it don't take long to see,
    Oh, where I am right now's no place to be.

    Lonesome, USA...
    Population one since yesterday.
    Livin' and dyin' in the hell I made since you been gone.
    Right now, my mind's in another state;
    Ain't enough heart here left to break.
    I'm livin' in Lonesome, Lonesome, USA.
    Hey, I'm livin' in Lonesome, Lonesome USA.
    Hey, I'm livin' in Lonesome, Lonesome USA.

  • 6. Asphalt Cowboy

    The sun has opened up my eyes,
    An' I don't want to leave your side,
    For that lonesome road but here I go.
    Climbing back behind the wheel,
    Of 50 feet of chrome and steel,
    An' a load they need in Chicago.
    Through the middle of the night unknown,
    I'm on a ride that won't let me go.

    I'm an asphalt cowboy;
    Born to run underneath the stars...
    Pay no mind to my lonely heart,
    I just ride, ride.
    Till I'm back in your arms again,
    I'll be out here on the wind.

    An' sometimes late at night,
    I see your picture by the dashboard light,
    And it takes me where I'd like to be.
    Wrapped up in a blanket there,
    Pullin' ribbons from you hair and your kiss...
    Girl that's what I miss.
    Still I drive there horses throught the rain and snow,
    This high-speed rodeo is all I know.

    I'm an asphalt cowboy;
    Born to run underneath the stars...
    Pay no mind to my lonely heart,
    I just ride, ride.
    Till I'm back in your arms again,
    I'll be out here on the wind.

    An' I'll ride,
    Till I'm back in your arms again,
    I'll be out here on the wind.
    An' I'll ride,
    Through the middle of the night unknown,
    I'm on a ride that won't let me go.

  • 7. I'm Just A Man

    I'm a blue collar man, had a hammer in my hand,
    For the last few years of my life.
    Working double overtime while you sleep alone at night...
    Baby I know it's been a long hard ride.
    Sometimes I forget to say "I love you",
    But baby, please know that I do, yeah.

    I live this life everyday,
    I make my share of mistakes,
    And every lesson I've learned, I've learned the hard way.
    I do the best that I can,
    And I hope you understand,
    After all, I'm just a man.

    I found a postcard that you've saved, it's turned yellow with age,
    Of a beautiful place in the sun.
    We've been saying, every year, that we're gonna go there,
    And run away... just the two of us.
    Well, I put that picture back on your dresser,
    Grab my keys, I got to get back to work, yeah...

    I live this life everyday,
    I make my share of mistakes,
    And every lesson I've learned, I've learned the hard way.
    I do the best that I can,
    And I hope you understand,
    After all, I'm just a man.

    I live this life everyday,
    I make my share of mistakes,
    And every lesson I've learned, I've learned the hard way.
    I do the best that I can,
    And I hope you understand,
    After all, I'm just a man.
    After all, I'm just a man.
    That's all I am,
    Baby, I'm just a man.

  • 8. You're The Love I Wanna Be In

    I've always been there every time he let you down.
    I caught your fallin' tears before they hit the ground.
    But I just heard somebody say that you finally told him goodbye.
    Well, girl now you've finally made your move, now I'm here to make mine.

    I wanna be there when you wake up,
    Be more than just your friend.
    Baby there's no mistakin',
    You're the love I wanna be in, ah yeah.

    I've kept my feelins under lock and key.
    Couldn't let you see them even though it was killin' me.
    You can't imagine all the time I spent wishin' you were mine.
    I just know if we ever kissed, we'd go crazy, baby, for the rest of our lives.

    I wanna be there when you wake up,
    Be more than just your friend.
    Baby there's no mistakin',
    You're the love I wanna be in.

    Well, I wanna be there when you wake up,
    Be more than just your friend.
    Baby there's no mistakin',
    You're the love I wanna be in.

    I wanna be there when you wake up,
    Be more than just your friend.
    Baby there's no mistakin',
    You're the love I wanna be in.
    You're the love I wanna be in, ah yeah.

    I wanna be there when you wake up.

  • 9. Good To Go

    Waitin' at a stop light yesterday
    As a funeral procession made its way
    Through the gates,
    I watched it roll up a winding road
    Through a field of green
    With white headstones all in a row,
    And it made me think about where I'm at
    On my not so straight and narrow path
    All the generous and mostly undeserved
    Blessings that I've had

    CHORUS
    I had an all-american mom and dad
    Some of the coolest friends you could ever have
    Found love I thought I'd never find
    Sometimes I can't believe this life in mine
    And I'm not plannin' on leavin' yet
    But the truth is you just never know
    And if this is as good as it gets
    Man, I think I'm good to go
    I'm good to go

    I said a prayer for the dearly departed
    And the loved ones left broken hearted
    Then traffic started
    And I drove away a little more able
    To see the good things on my table
    And for that I'm grateful
    'Cause I've had my troubles had my trials
    I've hit the mark and I've missed by miles
    Had days that I've been fightin' mad
    But the good times have more than
    Outweighted the bad

    CHORUS
    Got to hold my newborn baby girl
    And the hand of a man as he slipped from this world
    I've laughed so hard I couldn't stop
    Seen the sunrise from a mountain top
    And I'm not plannin' on leavin' yet
    But the truth is you just never know
    And if this is as good as it gets
    Man, I think I'm good to go

    Yeah, I've been thinkin' bout where I'm at
    On my not so straight and narrow path
    And I wouldn't wanna change nothing about
    This roll with the punches life I've had

    CHORUS
    I had an all-american mom and dad
    Some of the coolest friends you could ever have
    Found love I thought I'd never find
    I can't believe this life is mine
    And I'm not plannin' on leavin' yet
    But the truth is you just never know
    And if this is as good as it gets
    Man, I think I'm good to go
    I'm good to go
    I'm good to go

  • 10. I Believe In Ghosts

    I've never been superstitious
    I've never feared the unknown
    But ever since you left me
    I've believeed in ghosts
    Girl, i believe in ghosts

    [Chorus]
    Well i'm haunted by a memory
    That won't leave or let me go
    Call me crazy and i may be
    But i believe in ghosts
    Girl, i believe in ghosts

    I swear i keep seeing shadows
    I kno that i'm not alone
    I feel the temperature dropping
    And it chills me to the bone

    [Chorus]

    Should i be afraid, should i be scared
    You follow me everywhere, I'm haunted

    Call me crazy Hell I may be
    But I believe in ghosts

    [Chorus]

    I've never been superstitious
    I've never feared the unknown
    But ever since you left me baby
    I've believed in ghosts

  • 11. She Loved Me

    It was the summer of '89
    I fell in love and i learned to drive
    Me and Becky didn't waste no time
    Went zero to 65 one night
    Being young was getting old
    We were headed down a dead end road

    But we didn't care, we were on a roll
    Hangin' on for the ride
    Those lines that we were crossing
    Carelessly tossin' caution to the wind
    We were wearin' thin

    [chorus]
    We were livin' for the minute lovin' every second of it
    Fearless wild and free
    Nothin' could stop us
    But one day time caught up with us
    And woke us up in the middle of our dream
    But not before she loved me

    To think we thought that it would last
    Now lookin' back i have to laugh
    What a mess we made of that
    Now I'm not sure that i would want it back
    We learned a little bit about love
    What it wasn't and what it was
    It was fast and it was fun
    The beginning of the end of us
    But one day that road just ran out
    Yeah, i still travel down it now and then, and once again

    [chorus]

    She loved me
    She loved me
