Track Name: Whiskey & Song
Well, I grew up in a small town
Never seemed like much was going down
Wound up lost more than I was found
And I had to find my way

I watched my family work the land
At night we ended up with guitar in hand
It’s on this Earth that I’ll still stand
Lord, I had to find my way

Papa taught the whiskey recipe
And Mama put the fear of God into me
In the Lord and whiskey I believe
Lord, I had to find my way

I never did believe that we were wrong
Living, hard work, whiskey & song
It’s to this life that I belong
Lord, I had to find my way
Track Name: Crazy As I Am
Every man needs a friendly face
Someone that he can go on and come home to
Someone who knows exactly what I mean
Someone who gets what I am
What I go through

Tarzan had Jane, and Fred had Wilma
Shaggy had a dog, two girls, and a van
Well, you know, that’s a little bit creepy
Well, who am I to judge Cartoon Land

For all I know, you think I hear voices
That tell me I’m a Jedi Knight
Lightsaber in hand
But I’ve never had to use The Force to trick you to kiss me
Cause truth is you’re just as crazy as I am

Who needs Halloween when you think you’re Batman
Cause we can dress up and fight crime all year long
As long as the neighbors don’t figure out what we’re doing
Cause all those normal people seem to think that we’re off
They say we’re a little bit off

For all I know, you think I hear voices
That tell me I’m a Jedi Knight
Lightsaber in hand
But I’ve never had to use The Force to trick you to kiss me
Cause truth is you’re just as crazy as I am
Track Name: Just A Girl
“Just a girl” I heard ‘em say
Grew up doing things the right way
But it’s time to let me go
Just a girl, I’m on my way
And getting farther every day
And I learned how to go it alone

I’m speaking up, I’ve had enough
And I can’t hear a thing
You can shout, go ahead and scream
Cause I’m not listening

Just a girl making my own rules
When everyone’s telling me what to do
But I don’t care what they say at all
Yeah, I was weak for far too long
And now I’m going to stand up strong
And I won’t let them see me fall
Stand tall, I won’t fall

I’m speaking up, I’ve had enough
And I can’t hear a thing
You can shout, go ahead and scream
Cause I’m not listening

“Just a girl” I heard ‘em say
Too tall and in the way
But things aren’t always as they seem
They tell me how to dress, how to wear my hair
Cross my legs and not to swear
But I won’t be your American Dream
Not me, no, I’m not your dream

I’m speaking up, I’ve had enough
And I can’t hear a thing
You can shout, go ahead and scream
Cause I’m not listening
Track Name: Fever
Full moonlight down by the river
As the summer sun goes down
I‘ll dream of you even while you put me down
Found a boy and made me a man
I came into being with the touch of your hand

Fever (comin’ down)

You brought me love
Nightly like no woman ever did
I can feel you in my bed
I can taste your skin
Cast out a boy and made me a man
I came into being in the palm of your hand

Fever (comin’ down)
Track Name: I'm Home
Got my dog stretched out on my truck’s front seat
Stevie Ray on the radio playing
Oh, it’s in the air and it’s on the street
Leaves are changing, colder weather’s coming
And I’ve been running for so long

Sometimes I’ve been alone on the road
Sometimes I’ve been the star of the show
But now I’m home

I’ve been everywhere, I’ve seen everything
Been every place that my wheels could take me
Every little town, every city street
I leave behind little pieces of me
And I’ve been running for so long

Sometimes I’ve been alone on the road
Sometimes I’ve been the star of the show
But now I’m home
Track Name: Six More Days
A few hundred miles from Memphis
And I’m moving farther from what I know
Take a look in the mirror
It’s six days ‘til I’m back at home
Who knew where this would lead me
All the dreams that I left home to chase
I never knew how I would miss you
But you knew I could never stay

Six more days
As I fight to make my name
(Six more days)
Can’t wait to show you how I’ve missed you
In six more days

Spend my days counting hours
I pray to speed up time
I swear the clock is laughing at me
But you knew the tale is mine
Oh, the nights, tell my stories
Dark rooms, whiskey, and song
I fill my heart with conviction
And pray that I’m not wrong

Six more days
As I fight to make my name
(Six more days)
Can’t wait to show you how I’ve missed you
In six more days

Don’t know where I’m going but I know why
But I can’t stop missing who I left behind

Six more days
As I fight to make my name
(Six more days)
Can’t wait to show you how I’ve missed you
In six more days
Track Name: Everday
Life is getting harder
Everyday that I don’t have you
Trouble is not thinking
Everyday that I don’t have you
So I stare at the phone
Wondering what to do
So tired of being along
Living without you

Cause everyday just isn’t the same
Everyday gets longer and longer
Everyday, why must it be this way
Everyday

My life is changing
Everyday that I don’t have you
Moving on isn’t easy
Everyday that I don’t have you
So I go on back home
Nothing more to do now that I’m alone
And living without you

Cause everyday just isn’t the same
Everyday gets longer and longer
Everyday, why must it be this way
Everyday

My life is changing
Everday
Track Name: Steel Horses
Breeze blowing down an open road
People to see and places to go
Grab my hand and he told me goodbye
Don‘t need a reason
Just some space to fly

Steel horses keep driving me on

Steel wind, a face in the sun
You can’t put down roots
When you’re trying to run
See the world through a twilight of blue
When everything still reminds me of you

Steel horses keep driving me on

Picture a home and a song in my head
Remembering still the last words he said
Standing together in a hot summer haze
The day the horses drag me away

Steel horses keep driving me on
Track Name: Come On Home With Me
Hello baby, as forward as it seems
Come on home with me
Well, I know that some folks might find this obscene
Come on home with me
I ain’t promising wedding cards and such
But the way you look tonight sure fits me like a glove
And I sure do know it ain’t right or tame
Let me love you girl, you’ll never be the same

Come on baby, if you got no place to be
Come on home with me
Let me help you make some noise
Let’s make a scene
Come on home with me

Girl, you got something that shakes me to my roots
It picks me up and turns me ‘round
It won’t turn me loose
I got some love for you, don’t walk away
I know it’s way too soon but I just have to say

I ain’t no movie star, we’ll just make believe
So come on home with me
I might not be what you want but I’m what you need
Come on home with me
Track Name: It's Worth Fighting For
Daddy told me always be strong
When you need me most when I know you‘re wrong
Never hang your head and always stand up straight
Walk the way of giants and never lose your faith
Never lose your faith

Well, it’s you and it’s me and it’s something to see
It’s worth fighting for
Well, it’s holding on tight for one hell of a ride
It’s worth dying for
Can we keep this together
Can we stay forever
It’s worth fighting for
It’s worth dying for
It’s worth fighting for

The world is open to you if you just believe
Work at the things you love until your fingers bleed
A man is only worth all the good he’s done
Always fight when you’re right, never turn and run
Never turn and run

Well, it’s you and it’s me and it’s something to see
It’s worth fighting for
Well, it’s holding on tight for one hell of a ride
It’s worth dying for
Can we keep this together
Can we stay forever
It’s worth fighting for
It’s worth dying for
It’s worth fighting for
Track Name: Why Are You Still Kissing Me
Well, your man is someone
Bigger, stronger, meaner than me
But he’s got muscle in places
That they don’t need to be
You keep on telling me that I ain’t what you need
Then why are you still kissing me

Well, I guess he’s nice to look at but a little short on charm
But he looks oh so nice hanging on my arm
You keep on telling me that I ain’t what you need
Then why are you still kissing me

Tell me why
Why are you still kissing me
Why, why won’t you just let me be
It’s so obvious a blind man could see
Why are you still kissing me

It’s so obvious a blind man could see
Why are you still kissing me

Well, I guess he’s nice to look at but a little short on charm
But he looks oh so nice hanging on my arm
You keep on telling me that I ain’t what you need
Then why are you still kissing me

Why are you still kissing me
