Why Am I So Thirsty This Morning
2012
I feel each and every heartbeat through the pounding in my head My breath smells like a brewery & my eyes are blood shot red Drank 13 shots of whiskey, chased em' all with Miller Lite So why am I so thirsty this morning if I drank so much last night My mouth is dryer than a dessert on an August afternoon But it should be smooth & silky from all the beverage I've consumed It should be an easy answer, plain & simple, black & white Why am I so thirsty this morning if I drank so much last night I switched from 12 oz cans to pounders thinking that would do the trick But the more I drink the night before the thirstier I get I'm not one to be bewildered but this blows my mind Why am I so thirsty this morning if I drank so much last night My mouth is dryer than a dessert on an August afternoon If you smell my breath you'll catch a buzz from the fumes This song is almost over so let me ask you one last time Why am I so thirsty this morning if I drank so much last night
Piece Of The Pie
2012
It's been years now but I remember how I use to play around On a used red, white and blue guitar that was handed down From my Daddy to my brother and me Every evening a microphone and me still out here dreaming Some folks call me a fool for believing That I'll someday catch the break I really need You can blame my perseverance on my father I guess the fruit don't fall far from the tree I know in my heart out there somewhere There's a piece of the pie for me If I ever slow down and take a break from the dreams I'm been chasing around I'm gonna go back to my hometown to lick my wounds and catch my breath But right now I ain't done dreaming yet You can blame my perseverance on my father I guess the fruit don't fall far from the tree I know in my heart out there somewhere There's a piece of the pie for me
My Old Stomping Ground
2012
My ears are still ringing from the sound of the Interstate Left Tennessee this morning & drove 12 hours straight Pull into Pennsylvania right before the sun went down It sure is good to be here back in my old stomping grounds Where I was born, where I grew up, where I'll die I've put a million miles between us, since that cold November day When my dreams outgrew this small town & I had to move away This guitar and my music has taken me from town to town There's still no place like home here in my old stomping ground Were I was born, were I grew up, were I'll die I've played Huntsville, Alabama, Nashvillle, TN Milton, Indiana, You've be so good to me This guitar and my music has taken me from town to town But there ain't no place like home here in my old stomping ground Their squeezing in the doorway packing in here tight Loud & proud the hometown crowd at the Hourglass tonight They love to hear my music like I love to hear the sound Of a roomful of my friends in my old stomping ground Where I was born, where I grew up, it's where I'll die I've played Huntsville, Alabama, Memphis, TN Lake Charles, Louisiana at a Casino by the beach This guitar and my music has taken me from town to town But there ain't no place like home back in my old stomping ground Right now I'd rather ramble but some day I settle down And buy a one way ticket back to my old stomping ground
My Mind Already Is
2012
I can't deny this spark between us but I don't wanna cross the line I can give you two good reasons your husband and my wife We're just asking for trouble if we keep getting close like this Don't wanna have to tell you no if my body starts to go where my mind already is My mind already is making love to you Taste the wine on every kiss smell candles burning in your bedroom I can't go on teasing myself like this And keep my body from cheating like my mind already is These drinks are kicking in and common sense is kicking off My mind is figuring what are the odds of getting caught We're past the point of flirting and if we don't put an end to this I'll have a hard time saying no once my body starts to go Where my mind already is My mind already is making love to you Taste the wine on every kiss smell candles burning in your bedroom I can't go on teasing myself like this And keep my body from cheating like my mind already is
I'm still thirsty
2012
At five o'clock I came in here With some friends that I work with for just one beer Now they're all gone and out of here..but I'm not When I start drinking I can't quit A bucket of beer is like a bag of chips And I'm still thirsty for one more beer I'm still thirsty for one more beer Why 10 won't quench my thirst ain't exactly clear You'll have to run me out of money if you wanna run me out of here When I'm still thirsty for one more beer Bartender says lets call it a night Then pulls the strings on all the neon lights But me I think the time is just right for one more beer What's one more round gonna hurt When the one I stopped in for didn't work Come on bartender I'm not even being a jerk Chorus If I'm the last one out of here...it won't be a first You can wet my whistle...but you can never quench my thirst Chorus
Here's To A Job Well Done
2012
If you work hard with your nose to the grindstone And play hard when the work week is done Come Friday at five grab your glass and raise it high Here's to a job well done Here's to job to a job well done here's to a job well done I use to work in a factory For 14 years I made my living with a screw gun So to all those friends of mine out there on the assembly line Here's to a job well done Here's to job to a job well done here's to a job well done 18 wheels, a heavy load and a trucker Racking up a million miles one by one Up and down the interstate all across the USA Here's to a job well done Here's to job to a job well done here's to a job well done On a tractor in a field there's a Farmer Sweating in the hot summer sun He works hard to bring in the harvest Here's to a job well done Here's to job to a job well done here's to a job well done There are soldiers fighting for our freedom Hats off to each and everyone Don't forget their family's on the home front Here's to job well done Here's to job to a job well done here's to a job well done To everyone that earns your pay through hard work and dedication Each and everyone of you deserve a standing ovation Here's to job to a job well done here's to a job well done
He Calls Me Dad
2012
We don't exactly look the same It's not my blood running through his veins In a room full of fathers I may not be number one But he calls me Dad I call him Son On August 6th 1993 I married his Mom & put another limb on my family tree He was only 3 years old I was 21 He calls me Dad I call him Son It doesn't bother him it doesn't bother me Were just your everyday dysfunctional family In a room full of fathers I may not be number one But he calls me Dad I call him Taught him how to shave & how to parallel park Watched him graduate from high school watched some young girl break his heart I helped him hold it all together when his whole world came undone He calls me Dad I call him Son
Hard To Do
2012
Woke up this morning with a pounding head It took all morning to crawl out of bed I probably should of quit drinking last night after one or two Sometimes the right thing is hard to do My new years resolution was to get in shape Exercise and eat right loose a little weight I make a promise & never follow through Sometimes the right things are hard to do But wrong is easy but it ain't no good for you I've been planning on improving but my plans keep falling through I remember steeling my first cigarette That was 20 years ago and I ain't quit yet I Thought it wouldn't hurt to take a puff or two Sometimes the right things are hard to do Wrong is easy but it ain't no good for you I've been planning on improving but my plans keep falling through Repeat 1st verse

Big Fun In A Small Town
2009
Worked all week just got paid it's Friday night time to play Gonna let our hair down tonight miles away from the city lights You won't find us on a map no how but we have big fun in a small town We don't need no club with disco lights to have a little fun in the summertime Brush hog the fields knock down the briars get a cold keg of beer build a big bon fire Put up a volleyball net dig a horse shoe pit and there's a farm pond if ya wanna skinny dip Everybody get ready to go oh oh don't wanna be late Turn up the radi-adi-adio oh oh up loud grab my girl and dance on the tailgate Not a cloud in the sky looks like the weathers gonna be just right For having big fun in a small town tonight Tomorrow morning we'll wake up to a field full of red plastic cups Get a garbage bag and me and my friends will clean up the mess so we can make it again Everybody get ready to go oh oh don't wanna be late Turn up the radi-adi-adio oh oh up loud grab my girl and dance on the tailgate Not a cloud in the sky looks like the weathers gonna be just right For having big fun in a small town tonight
