Long Neck Bottle 

Long neck bottle, let go of my hand 
Hey jukebox don't start playing that song again 
'Cause there's a girl at home who loves me, 
You know she won't understand 
Long neck bottle, let go of my hand 

Hey barroom mirror on the wall 
Go stare at someone new 
Don't show the world the fool I am 
Just keep it to yourself 

Long neck bottle, let go of my hand 
Hey jukebox don't start playing that song again 
'Cause there's a girl at home who loves me, 
You know she won't understand 
 Long neck bottle, let go of my hand 

Dance floor, seems you're underneath my feet 
Everywhere I turn 
I'd waltz right out of those swinging doors, 
But that step I just can't learn 

Long neck bottle, let go of my hand 
Hey jukebox don't start playing that song again 
'Cause there's a girl at home who loves me, 
You know she won't understand 
Long neck bottle, let go of my hand 
              THE THIRD VERSE!!! 
  
If she thought there was someone else 
Our romance would be thru 
So barstool we can't let her know 
That I'm stuck on you 

How You Ever Gonna Know? 

That old wind that's whippin' out there 
It's whistlin' your tune 
That wind blew pyramids to Egypt 
and footprints to the moon 
And that old star that you've been wishin' on 
Is shining mighty bright 
It's a fire inside your heart 
That's gonna lead you to the light 

How you ever gonna know, 
What's it like to live there? 
How you ever gonna know, victory? 
How you ever gonna know, 
What it's like when dreams become reality? 
How you ever gonna know, 
How it feels to hold it? 
How you ever gonna know, what it's like to dance? 
How you ever gonna know, 
If you never take the chance? 

You know failure isn't failure 
If a lesson from it's learned 
I guess love would not be love 
Without a risk of being burned 
Anything in life worth havin' 
Lord, it has its sacrifice 
But the gift that you're receiving 
Is worth more than the price 

How you ever gonna know, 
What's it like to live there? 
How you ever gonna know, 
What you never know? 
How you ever gonna know, 
If you're down here doin' 
what the good lord puts you here to do? 
How you ever gonna know, 
If you could have done it? 
How you ever gonna know, How it feels to fly? 
How you ever gonna know, 
If you never dare to try? 

Listen not to the critics, 
Who put their own dreams on the shelf 
If you wanna get the truth to admit it, 
You've gotta find out for yourself 
How you ever gonna know, 
What it's like to be there? 
How you ever gonna know, 
If you're the best? 
         How you ever gonna know, 
What you believe in if you don't put it to the test? 
How you ever gonna know, 
How it feels to hold it? 
How you ever gonna know, 
What'll never change it? 
How you ever gonna know, 
If you never chase the dream? 

How you ever gonna know, 
Your potential? 
How you ever gonna know, 
Victory? 
How you ever gonna know, 
What's it like when dreams become reality? 
How you ever gonna know, 
How it feels to hold her? 
How you ever gonna know, 
What it's like to dance? 
How you ever gonna know, 
If you never take the chance? 

She's Gonna Make It 
  
He followed her to work this morning 
He'd never seen that dress before 
And she seemed to sail 
Right through those dark clouds formin' 
That he knows he's headed for 
After seven years of marriage he wanted out 
After seven months of freedom 
It's clear that there's no doubt 

(chorus) 
She's gonna make it 
And he never will 
He's at the foot of that mountain 
She's over that hill 
He's sinkin' at sea 
And her sails are filled 
She's gonna make it 
And he never will 

You know it's not like she's forgot about it 
She's just dealin' with the pain 
And the fact that she's survived so well without him 
You know it's drivin' him insane 
And the crazy thing about it, 
Is she'd take him back 
But the fool in him that walked out 
Is the fool that just won't ask 

(chorus) 

I Don't Have to Wonder 

Drove to the church 
In my suit and tie 
But I just couldn't bring myself 
To go inside 

So I sat alone 
In my truck across the street 
Watched that chauffeur smokin cigarettes 
By that long white limousine 

I could just imagine 
What was goin on in there 
Sunlight streamin through the stained glass 
And those flowers in her hair 

And in less time than it takes a tear to fall 
Those bells rang loud as thunder 
As they opened up the doors 
Now I dont have to wonder anymore 

Laughin and a cryin 
Tossin that bouquet 
And when you got in that limo 
I drove off the other way 

And I still dont know 
Why things happened like they did 
But I parked that old pickup 
On that lonesome river bridge 

I took your ring from my pocket 
And then I held it one last time 
Watched that diamond sparkle 
I drew back and I let her fly 

And in less time than it takes a tear to fall 
Oh that old ring went under 
And now its gone for sure 
And I dont have to wonder anymore 

Well the angels sang like thunder 
As I felt myself go under 
Now I dont have to wonder anymore 

Two Pina Colladas 

I was feelin' the blues, 
I was watchin' the news 
When this fella came on the TV 
He said that I'm tellin' you, 
That science has proven 
That heartaches are healed by the sea 
And that got me goin' without even knowin' 
And I packed right up and drove down 
Now I'm on a role, and I sear to my sole 
Tonight I'm gonna paint this town 

(chorus) 

Bring me Two Pina Colladas 
I want one for each hand 
Let's set sail with Captain Morgan 
and never leave dry land 
Hey troubles I've forgotten 
I've buried them in the sand. 
So bring me two Pina Colladas 
she said goodbye to her good timing man. 

Now I've got to say, that the wind and the waves 
And the moon winkin' down at me 
Eases my mind, by leaving behind 
The heartaches that love often brings 
Now I've got a smile, that goes on for miles 
With no inclination to roam 
Now I've gotta say, that I thank God I stayed 
Cause it's feeling more and more like home 

(chorus) 
 Cowboy Cadillac 

I've never known one better, she's a real go-getter 
If you met her you'd be good as gone 
She's a real red-liner, likes it all behind her 
She's the kind that keeps you hangin' on 
She's a cowboy's buddy, even when she gets muddy 
Well I love to show her front to back 
So either comin' or goin' or her best side showin' 
She's my cowboy Cadillac 

She's the perfect picture of the perfect mixture 
Between a woman and a fine machine 
She's a hard-work lover, a real tough mother 
She's the cover of a magazine 
And I'm happy knowing that what keeps me going 
Is what's gonna keep me coming back 
She's my honkin' tonkin' everything I'm wantin' 
Cowboy cadillac 

I love to haul them cattle, all my ropes and saddle 
It doesn't matter work or play 
If it's a mountain she can crawl it, 
If it's hay then she can haul it 
She's the last one to call it a day 
Every cowboy loves her, or they all dream of her 
Oh and brother don't they all react 
At the end of the evening when they see me leaving 
With my cowboy cadillac 

Fit for A King 

His pulpit's a corner 
On 19th and Main 
His grip on the gospel 
His one claim to fame 

He hurls fire and brrimstone 
At the cars passing by 
And he offers salvation 
For the savior on high 

His khakis are tattered 
And he aint bathed in weeks 
His bout with the bottle 
Shows up on his cheeks 

He looks like a scarecrow 
A sight to behold 
As he works for the shepherd 
Bringin lambs to the fold 
He points to the Bible 
He holds in his hands 
Says Im proof that the good Lord 
Can save any man 

(chorus) 

Son, it aint what youre driving 
Or the clothes that you wear 
Material possessions 
Wont matter up there 
And someday in heaven 
When the angels all sing 
These rags that Im wearin 
Will be fit for a king 

Hes fighting a fever 
In spite of the chill 
He pulls up his collar 
And he speaks of Gods will 

His body is weakend 
But his faith is sitll strong 
For hes filled with conviction 
For the mission hes on 

He knows soon in heaven 
Hell be homeless no more 
As his work will soon echo 
From that far distant shore 

(chours) 

And someday in heaven 
When the angels all sing 
These rags that Im wearin 
Will be fit for a king 

And someday in heaven 
When the angels all sing 
These rags that Im wearin 
Will be fit for a king 

Do What You Gotta Do 

Sometimes youve got to take the heat 
If your gonna walk down on the mean street 
TAke the heat and you see it through 
Cause sometimes it comes down to 
Do what you gotta do 

Sometimes it goes right down to the wire 
And you might have to walk through the fire 
Walk on, boy, all the way through 
Sometimes it comes down to 
Do what you gotta do 

Well theres people thatll tell you 
Its just no use 
And theres people thatll tell you 
Taht youre gonna lose 
People thall tell you 
Anything youre gonna listen to 
Do what you gotta do 

Someday theyre going to call your name 
Theyll come looking for someone to blame 
Whats your name boy 
Hey you just tell them true 
Cause they cant take the truth from you 
So do what you gotta do 

Well theyll call  you a hero or a traitor 
But youll find out that sooner or later 
Nobody in this world is gonna do it for you 
Do what you gotta do 

There aint no body in this world 
Thats gonna do it for you 
Do what you gotta do 

You Move Me 

This is how it seems to me 
Life is only therapy 
Real expensive and no guarantees 

So I lay here on the couch 
With my heart hanging out 
Frozen solid with fear, 
Like a rock in the ground 

(chorus) 

Whoa, but you move me 
You give me courage I didn't know I had 
And you move me 
And I can't go with you and stay where I am 
So you move me 

This is how love was to me 
I could look and not see 
Going through the emotions, 
Not knowing what they mean 
And it scares me so much 
That I just wouldn't budge 
I might have stayed there forever 
If not for your touch 

(chorus) 

You go whistlin' in the dark 
Making light of this, making light of this 
And I follow with my heart, laughing all the way 

You move me 
You give me courage I didn't know I had 
And you move me 
And I can't go with you and stay where I am 
So you move me 

Another's Eyes (Duet with Trisha Yearwood) 

In another's eyes, I'm someone who 
Loves her enough, to walk away from you 
I'd never cheat, I would never lie 
In another's eyes 

In another's eyes, I can do no wrong 
And he believes in me, and his faith is strong 
I'd never fall, or even compromise 
In another's eyes 

In another's eyes, I'm afraid that I can't see 
This picture perfect portrait that they paint of me 
They don't realize, and I pray they never do 
'Cause every time I look I'm seeing you 
In another's eyes 

Oh in another's eyes, starin' back at me 
I see a sinking soul trying desperately 
To turn the tide, before it dies 
In another's eyes 

And what they don't see, Lord is killing me 
It's a blessing and a curse that love is blind 

'Cause in another's eyes, I'm afraid that I can't see 
This picture perfect portrait that they paint of me 
They don't realize, and I pray to God they never do 
'Cause every time I look I'm seeing you 
In another's eyes 
In another's eyes 
In another's eyes 
  

When There's No One Around 

This is the song that nobody knows 
I couldn't begin to describe how it goes 
But it makes me cry or laugh right out loud 
It's the song that I sing when there's no one around 

This is the man that nobody sees 
He wears my old clothes and he looks just like me 
Just one of the boys who gets lost in the crowd 
He's the man that I am when there's no one around 

It's four in the morning, I'm lying in bed 
A tape of my failures playing inside my head 
It's heartaches and hard knocks and things I don't know 
I listen and I wonder where will it go 

This is a glimpse of a child that's within 
He's so immature but he's still my best friend 
If he could learn how to fly, he'd never touch down 
He's the kid that I am when there's no one around 

This is a dance I do every day 
I let my feet go and get carried away 
I let my soul lead and follow the sound 
It's a dance that I do when there's no one around 

It's still four in the morning, I'm lying in bed 
A tape of my failures playing inside my head 
It's heartaches and hard knocks and things I don't know 
I listen and I wonder where will it go 

This is the song that nobody knows 
I still can't begin to describe how it goes 
But it makes me cry or laugh right out loud 
It's the song that I sing when there's no one around 

Friend to Me 

Well you and I 
Were buddies 
And weve been since we first met 
Me and you 
Well weve sure been through 
Our share of  laughter and regret 

Lord knows weve had our bad days 
And more than once weve disagreed 
But youve always been a friend to me 

You can be so stubborn 
Theres times I think you just like to fight 
And I hope and pray 
I live to see a day 
When you say I might be right 

And theres times Id rather kill you 
Than listen to your honesty 
But y youve always been a friend to me 

Youve always been 
Time and again 
The one to take my hand 
And show me its okay to be 
Just the way I am 
With no apology 

Oh youve always been 
And you will till God knows when 
Yes youve always been a friend to me 

Take the Keys to My Heart 

Ive been out on this highway of hearache 
Hopin that somewhere down the line 
I could find somebody who 
Could rev me like you do 
So grab onto my wheel 
And Ill be fine 

(chorus) 

Take the keys to my heart 
And drive me crazy 
Ive been runnin on empty way too long 
Honey you got the touch 
That heats my motor up 
Take the keys to my heart 
And drive it home 

I dont know where this road is gonna lead us 
But what a beautiful night for a drive 
Baby put your mind at ease 
Drop the top and feel the breeze 
Just follow the signs to paradise 

(chorus) 

Tonight were gonna set these wheels on fire 
And find out just how far this thing will go 
Honey we dont need no map 
Cause where we are is where its at 
Take the keys to my heart 
And drive it home 

Baby make my motor yearn 
I long to feel that rubber burn 
Take the keys to my heart 
And drive it home 
Drive it home 

Balleau Wood 

Oh the snow flakes fell in silence 
Over Belleau Wood that night 
For a Christmas truce had been declared 
By both sides of the fight 
As we laid there in our trenches 
The silence broke in two 
By a german soldier singing 
A song that we all knew 

Though I did not know the language 
The song was Silent Night 
Then I heard my buddy whisper 
"All is calm, all is bright" 
Then the fear and doubt surrounded me 
Cause I die if I was wrong 
But I stood up in my trench 
And I began to sing along 

Then across the frozen battlefield 
Another's voice joined in 
Until one by one each man became 
A singer of the hymn 

Then I thought I was dreaming 
For right there in my sight 
Stood the german soldier 
Neath the falling flakes of white 
And he raised his hand and smiled at me 
As if seemed to say 
Heres hoping  we both live to see 
Us find a better way 

Then the devils clock struck midnight 
And the skies lit up again 
And the battlefield where heaven stood 
Was blown to hell again 

But for just one fleeting moment 
The answer seemed so clear 
Heaven's not beyond the clouds 
Its just beyond the fear 

No heaven's not beyond the clouds 
It's for us to find here
