LYRICS

Whiskey and Lead

 

ANNIE OAKLEY

WELL, I GOT YOU IN MY SIGHTS
BUT I AIN’T LOOKING FOR A FIGHT
ROLL OVER SAY GOOD NIGHT
OR JUST GOODBYE…
ANY LAST WORDS OR A LAST REQUEST?
BEFORE I LAY THESE PROBLEMS AND YOU TO REST
MY TRIGGER FINGER’S ITCHIN’, AND IT’S AGAINST MY
RELIGION
BUT HONEY YOU PUSHED ME TO THIS DECISION


CHORUS:
ANNIE OAKLEY AIN’T GOT NOTHING ON ME
I GOT A HIGH POWERED RIFLE AND I TAP IN THREES
WHAT YA GIVE IS WHAT YA GET – I BELIEVE
SO DON’T DO NOTHIN’, DO NOTHIN’, DO NOTHING BAD
TO ME
 
YOU CAN TRY TO RUN,
INTO THE SETTING SUN
BUT THE DAMAGE IS DONE
AND WHERE’S THE FUN (WHERE’S THE FUN)
WHEN I CAN HIT A TARGET FROM A MILE AWAY

FUELED BY RAGE AND A LITTLE HEART ACHE
NO WARNING SHOTS WHEN I’M LOADED AND COCKED
REVENGE IS SOMETHING THAT CAN’T BE BOUGHT


CHORUS REPEAT


DADDY TAUGHT ME WELL AT AN EARLY AGE
HOW TO SHOOT THIS GUN W/ EASE AND GRACE
GAVE A COUPLE HUNDRED ACRES OF THE FAMILY
PLOT
AND AN UNMARKED GRAVE WAS ALL HE GOT
ALL HE GOT


CHORUS REPEATX2

IF YOU CAN'T RIDE

OH, I LIKE THE WAY

YOU WEAR THOSE LEVI JEANS 
TIGHT IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES

LEAVING  JUST A LITTLE MYSTERY 
FROM UNDER THAT BIG OL STETSON

YOUR EYES MEET MINE 
AND I'M WONDERING IF YOU'VE GOT PLANS

AFTER CLOSING TIME
YOU GOT THEM EASTWOOD EYES,

AS BLUE AS THE SKY
HONEY, IF YOU WANNA TAKE

ME HOME TONIGHT


CHORUS:
HERE WE GO DO-SI-DO​

COWBOY YOU OUGHT TO KNOW
THIS AIN'T MY FIRST RODEO 
IF YOU WANT TO GET WITH ME
GRAB A 2.6. OF JIM BEAM 
PAY THE TAB AND WE'LL HIT THE DOOR 
LISTEN CLOSE I'LL ONLY SAY IT ONE TIME 
DON'T SADDLE UP, IF YOU CAN'T RIDE


IT AIN'T ABOUT WHO MADE

THE BOOTS ON YOUR FEET 
DON'T GET ME WRONG

I HOPE THEY WALK ALL OVER ME 
THAT SEXY SOUTHERN CHARM

WILL ONLY GET YOU SO FAR 
DO YOU WANNA LEAVE ON MY ARM

OR GET LEFT AT THE BAR? 


CHORUS REPEAT


DON'T, DON’T, DON’T SADDLE UP, UP, UP

IF YOU CAN'T RIDE X2


CHORUS REPEAT


LISTEN CLOSE I'LL ONLY SAY IT ONE TIME 
IT REALLY DON’T MATTER IF YA GOT EAST WOOD EYES
LISTEN CLOSE I’LL ONLY SAY IT ONE TIME
DON'T SADDLE UP, IF YOU CAN'T RIDE

HEARTLESS

YOU’D NEVER MISS A WINK OF SLEEP
YOU’D NEVER TOSS OR TURN OVER ME
IT’S GONE TOO FAR, I’M IN TOO DEEP
I WAS BLIND BUT NOW I SEE
I FEEL BETRAYED, LED ASTRAY
YOU PULL ME IN TO PUSH ME AWAY
AND THAT AIN’T OKAY
TO MAKE ME FEEL THIS WAY


CHORUS:
WHY YOU GOTTA BE SO HEARTLESS
I NEVER ASKED FOR THIS
I GAVE IT ALL, YOU WANTED LESS
LOVING YOU IS DANGEROUS
I ONLY TRIED MY BEST
WHY YA GOTTA BE
SO HEARTLESS


YOU THINK YOUR TOUGH, YOU THINK YOUR COOL
BRUSHING ME OFF THE WAY YOU DO

I PLAYED THE GAME BY YOUR RULES
AND I KNOW I’M JUST BEING USED
I CANT FORGIVE AND FORGET
THEN  IN LOVE’S TRENCHES TAKE MY STAND
CAN’T RELIVE TO REGRET
LETTING YOU PUT ME DOWN AGAIN
 
CHORUS REPEAT 

 (SO HEARTLESS )


YOU, (YOU) YA BREAK ME DOWN
YOU, (YOU)  YA CUT ME DOWN
NO MORE KICKING AND SCREAMING
WHEN MY PAIN DON’T MEAN A THING TO YOU


CHORUS X 2


 TRY AND DENY IT
 GAVE IT ALL AND YOU WANTED LESS
BOY, LOVING YOU IS DANGEROUS

RODEO MAN

WELL YOU, KIND OF TOOK ME BY SURPRISE
YOU LET YOURSELF IN AND OUT OF MY LIFE
YOU'RE THE KIND OF GUY, MY DADDY WARNED ME ABOUT
AND YOU WERE LONG GONE, BEFORE I COULD FIGURE YOU OUT


CHORUS:
RODEO MAN, RIDE AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN
RODEO MAN, HOPE I NEVER EVER SEE YOU AGAIN
BUT OOU OOU OOU YOU HAD THEM BABY BLUES
SO WHY-HY-HY DID I EVER LET YOU INTO MY LIFE
RODEO MAN, RIDE AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN


I WONDER WHERE YOU MIGHT BE TONIGHT
OUT MAKING EYES AT THE GIRLS UNDER MIDWAY LIGHTS
YOU'RE JUST LIKE CLINT EASTWOOD MEETS JOHN WAYNE
I SHOULDVE SAW YOU COMING FROM A PRAIRIE MILE AWAY
 
CHORUS REPEAT

RODEO MAN (RIDE AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN) x2

COME AND TAKE IT

I OWE A MANY THOUSAND DOLLARS TO A BANK MACHINE
THE THINGS THAT I GOT, THEY AIN’T MINE REALLY
WITH ALL THIS DEBT THERE AIN’T NO DOUBT
I GOTTA WORK TO LIVE THAT’S WHAT MY LIFE’S ABOUT

I GOT A HOUSE, WHERE SOMETHING’S ALWAYS BREAKING
GOT A MAN TOO, BUT THERE’S NO LOVE MAKING
I WORK ALL DAY AND BY THE TIME I GET HOME
I JUST GO TO BED AND SAY “YA....MAYBE TOMORROW...”

CHORUS:
I OUGHTTA PACK IT IN GO TO MEXICO
AND SET UP A STAND ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD
LIVE DAY TO DAY NOT JUST DOLLAR TO DOLLAR
AND I’LL WORK ON A TAN UNDER MY BLUE COLLAR
I’VE GOT INTEREST THAT I’M NOT INTERESTED IN
AND IF THEY WANT IT THAT BAD THEY’RE GONNA HAVE TO
COME AND TAKE IT

I GOT AN UNPAID TAB AT THE LOCAL HOLE
SO, TONIGHT I GUESS I’LL BE DRINKING ALONE
I’LL START A FIRE WITH ALL THESE “PAST DUES”
AND PRAY IT BURNS THE HOUSE DOWN TOO
BUT MY INSURANCE WOULDN’T TAKE THE CLAIM
CAUSE THEY CUT ME OFF JUST YESTERDAY
WHAT’S THE POINT OF MY LIFE? GOD ONLY KNOWS
HE’S GOT A SICK SENSE OF HUMOUR THAT’S THE WAY IT GOES

CHORUS REPEAT

THE DOC. SAYS “STRESS” WILL KILL WOMEN MY AGE
WELL, I GUESS I’M GONNA DIE IF THESE DON’T GET PAID
BUT I AIN’T GOT THE MONEY TO PUT ME IN THE GROUND
SO JUST DROP ME IN A DITCH OUTSIDE OF TOWN

I OUGHTA PACK IT IN GO TO MEXICO

AND DRINK MARGARITAS IN A SOMBRARO

LIVE DAY TO DAY NOT JUST DOLLAR TO DOLLAR

I'LL WORK ON A TAN UNDER MY BLUE COLLAR I

I OUGHTTA PACK IT IN GO TO MEXICOAND

SET UP A STAND ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD

LIVE DAY TO DAY NOT JUST DOLLAR TO DOLLAR

AND I’LL WORK ON A TAN UNDER MY BLUE COLLAR

I’VE GOT INTEREST THAT I’M NOT INTERESTED IN

IF THEY WANT IT THAT BAD

IF THEY WANT IT THAT BAD

IF THAT WANT IT THAT BAD

THEY’RE GONNA HAVE TO

COME AND TAKE IT

EX'S FOR A REASON

OF ALL THE BARS IN OUR LITTLE HOMETOWN
YOU HAD TO CHOOSE MY FAVOURITE

TO THROW IT ON DOWN
I HEARD YOU WERE BACK, YOU WERE ASKING ABOUT ME
STIRRING UP FEELINGS AND ALL THESE

OLD MEMORIES

NOW YOU’RE WALKING MY WAY, DAMN GIRL, YOU LOOK SO FINE
WITH THAT LOOK IN YOUR EYE I’VE SEEN

A HUNDRED A TIMES
TRY TO KEEP IT STEADY MY HEART IS RACING MILES
AT THE ANTICIPATION OF YOUR

FAMILIAR SMILE

CHORUS:

HEY GIRL YOU GOT ME BELIEVING
MY HEART REMEMBERS YOU LEAVING
PEOPLE DON’T CHANGE LIKE A SEASON
HEY GIRL YOU DO LOOK PLEASING
WHAT THE HELL AM I EVEN THINKIN?
EX’S ARE EX’S FOR A REASON

I RECALL

DAYS IN THE SAND, NIGHTS SPENT UNDER THE STARS
YOU TOLD ME YOU LOVED ME IN THE BACK OF MY

OLD MANS CAR
YOU HAVEN’T CHANGED MUCH FROM WHAT I CAN SEE
YOU’RE STILL THE SAME GIRL, A LITTLE

TOO WILD AND FREE

CHORUS REPEAT

DID YOU REALLY THINK I’D PICK YOUR PLACE OR MINE?
SORRY TO DISAPPOINT YOU GIRL, BUT I’M LEAVING YOU BEHIND.

CHORUS  REPEAT

A GOOD REASON..
A REAL GOOD REASON..

 

A LITTLE MORE TIME

IF I WERE AN ANGEL

WELL LORD KNOWS I’M NOT
I’D REMIND YOU OF THE GOOD YOU GOT
WHEN YOUR BEAUTY

WON’T SHINE THROUGH
I’LL ASK  GOD TO SPEND A LITTLE MORE TIME ON YOU

TIMES WILL GET HARD

NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU PRAY
YOU’LL FEEL BROKEN HOPELESS LIKE NOTHING’LL EVER CHANGE
IF YOU NEED SOMEONE

TO PULL YOU THROUGH
I’LL ASK GOD TO SPEND A LITTLE MORE TIME ON YOU

CHORUS:
HE’LL HOLD YOU CLOSE AND SAY

IT’LL  BE ALRIGHT
SEND YOU AN ANGEL

TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT
GIVE YOU DIRECTION,

MAKE YOU STRONG TO FIGHT
WHEN YOU ASK,

WHAT WILL I EVER DO
THAT’S WHEN GOD SPENDS

A LITTLE MORE TIME ON YOU

IF YOU GET LOST

ON A DARK BACK ROAD
IF YOUR FAITH IS WANDERIN' AND YOUR GAS IS LOW
IF YOU’D TRADE YOUR LIFE

NOT TO FEEL SO BLUE
I’LL ASK GOD TO SPEND A LITTLE MORE TIME ON YOU

CHORUS REPEAT

NOW YOU’RE FRAYED TO YOUR FINAL STRING
I KNOW YOU’VE BEEN HOLDING ON

FOR JUST ONE THING
THAT’S WHEN YOUR FEET WILL TOUCH THE GROUND
AND YOU’LL KNOW THEN

HE’S ALWAYS BEEN AROUND

CHORUS:
HE’LL HOLD YOU CLOSE AND SAY

IT’LL  BE ALRIGHT
SEND YOU AN ANGEL

TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT
GIVE YOU DIRECTION,

MAKE YOU STRONG TO FIGHT
WHEN YOU ASK,

WHAT WILL I EVER DO
THAT’S WHEN GOD SPENDS A LITTLE

OH WHEN GOD SPENDS A LITTLE

THATS WHEN GOD SPENDS

A LITTLE MORE TIME ON YOU

LITTLE OLD FARMHOUSE

BACK IN THE HOLLER, PAST BLACK CREEK
THERE’S A LITTLE OLD FARMHOUSE WHERE WE USED TO MEET
WE’D HOP THE FENCE BY THE NO TRESPASSING SIGN
WITH THE BOTTLE I STOLE AND YOUR DADDY’S FLASHLIGHT
I CAN STILL HEAR THE WAY YOU USED TO LAUGH
AS WE RAN AND FELL THROUGH THAT KNEE HIGH GRASS


WE’D SIT ON THAT FRONT PORCH TO STARE UP AT THE STARS
YOU SAID, “ONE DAY WE’LL MARRY AND THIS HOUSE CAN BE
OURS.
WE’LL HAVE A BOY AND A GIRL, A DOG AND A CAT,
PUT A TIRE SWING OUT FRONT AND A POOL OUT BACK.”
YOU HAD A PLAN, EVEN BACK THEN
BUT YOUNG GIRLS GROW RESTLESS AS BOYS BECOME MEN


CHORUS 
AND THERE WAS SOMETHING TO BE SAID, BECAUSE WE WERE
JUST KIDS
AND OF ALL THE DREAMS, YOU DARED TO DREAM
YOU WANTED THAT LITTLE OLD FARM HOUSE.. AND ME


SUMMER AFTER HIGHSCHOOL I PACKED MY BAGS
HAD TO SEE THE WORLD AND TO FIND MY PLACE
I SAW THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS, THE GRAND CANYON, THE
COAST,
BUT DEEP DOWN I KNEW THEY COULD NEVER BE HOME
SO I WENT BACK TO THE HOLLER, PAST BLACK CREEK
TO THE BOY AND THE FARMHOUSE THAT WERE WAITING FOR ME


CHORUS 
AND THERE WAS SOMETHING TO BE SAID, CUS WE WERE JUST
KIDS
WHO COULD’VE GONE ANYWHERE, OR DONE ANYTHING
BUT OF ALL THE DREAMS YOU DARED TO DREAM
YOU WANTED THAT LITTLE OLD FARMHOUSE AND ME


NOW IT’S 60 YEARS LATER AND I’M HOLDING YOUR HAND
RECALLING OUR LIVES FROM A HOSPITAL BED
WE COULDN’T WAIT FOR THE KIDS TO BE GROWN,
BUT I NEVER IMAGINED I’D LIVE HERE ALONE
WE LAUGHED AT OLD MEMORIES ‘TIL I STARTED TO CRY
CAUSE I WASN’T READY TO TELL YOU GOOD BYE (AND YOU
SAID..)


UP THERE IN HEAVEN, JUST PAST THE GATES
THERE’S A LITTLE OLD FARM HOUSE, THAT’S WHERE I’LL WAIT
I’LL HOP THE FENCE AND RUN THROUGH FIELDS OF GRASS
AND KNOW IN MY HEART THAT I’M HOME AT LAST
WHEN YOU SIT ON THAT FRONT PORCH, LOOK UP TO THE STARS
KNOW I’LL NEVER BE TOO FAR FROM WHERE YOU ARE.


CHORUS
AND THERE’S NOTHING TO BE SAID, ‘CAUSE WE’RE NO LONGER
KIDS
WHO CAN GO ANYWHERE OR DO ANYTHING
BUT OF ALL THE LIVES AND PATHS TO CHOOSE
I NEVER WANTED ANYTHING MORE THAN THAT FARMHOUSE AND
YOU

CHATCHING ME


MY MOMMA TRIED, MY DADDY PRAYED
ONE DAY I'D WAKE UP AND CHANGE MY WAYS
BUT I GREW UP WILD, A LITTLE UNTAMED
LIKE A MUSTANG RUNNING, FOR A WIDE OPEN PLAIN

ALL MY LIFE I’VE BEEN LIVING IN A CAGE
PLAYING BY THE RULES IN SOMEONE ELSE’S GAME
CAN’T WASTE ANOTHER SECOND OR ANOTHER DAY
I'M HEADING ON A JOURNEY, I'M ON MY WAY


I'LL WALK THE PATH LESS TAKEN
ALL OF THESE RULES ARE FOR BREAKING

CHORUS:
ITS MY TIME TO SPREAD MY WINGS AND FLY
CHASE THE SUN ACROSS AN ENDLESS SKY
THERE’S NOTHING IN MY WAY BUT MY OWN TWO FEET
AND NOBODY, NOBODY, NO ONE IS CATCHING ME


I'LL BE AS FREE AS A BIRD, STEADY AS A TREE
I'LL MOVE WITH THE CURRENT OF AN OCEAN BREEZE
SLEEP ON THE MOUNTAIN HIGH AMONGST THE STARS
I'LL NEVER NEED A COMPASS, I'LL FOLLOW MY HEART


I'LL WALK THAT PATH LESS TAKEN
ALL OF THESE RULES ARE FOR BREAKING
 
CHORUS REPEAT


NOBODY, NOBODY, NO ONE IS CATCHING ME


I'LL WALK THAT PATH LESS TAKEN
ALL OF THESE RULES ARE FOR BREAKING
 
CHORUS X 2

AIN’T CATCHING ME

SLOW MOTION

OOOO’S X 2

WHY IS IT SO DAMN HARD?
WHY AM I SEEING STARS?
I WANNA BE JUST SOME SMALL PART OF WHO YOU ARE


FROM FIRST KISS TO THE FIRST DATE
BOY YOU’VE HAD YOUR WAYS
THE THINGS YOU’D SAY JUST TO DRIVE ME CRAZY


YA DRIVE ME HOME, THE RADIOS LOW
WONDERING HOW I’LL HAVE LET YA GO

CHORUS
DON’T NEED FOREVER JUST TONIGHT.
HOLD ME IN YOUR ARMS SO I
CAN TAKE IN THIS MOMENT IN SLOW MOTION
STAY HERE WHERE THE PICTURE IS CLEAR
IN BLACK AND WHITE, IN SMILES AND TEARS
DRIFT  ON AN OCEAN OF EMOTION
IT’S OUR HEARTS FLOATING IN SLOW MOTION


WE’VE BEEN RUNNING FOR SOME TIME,
TRYING TO FIND THAT SOMEONE RIGHT
I JUST LOVE THE WAY YOUR HANDS FEEL IN MINE


ALL THE HINTS AND MISSED CHANCES
MY HEART HAS BEEN WANTING THIS
SO TELL ME BABY WHY ARE WE WAITIN’?


YOU’RE OUTSIDE, WASTING TIME
WILL YOU LET THE MOMENT PASS YOU BY?

CHORUS REPEAT

IN THE DARK, I FEEL YA CLOSE
THIS TIME IS ONLY YOURS.

CHORUS REPEAT


TAKE IN THIS MOMENT IN SLOW  MOTION

DRINK YOU PRETTY

OWW! C’MON NOW!

IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT, AND I’M FEELIN’ ALRIGHT
I GOT ONE THING ON MY MIND
I’M GONNA FIND A MAN, WHO’LL TAKE A CHANCE
BUY ME A DRINK AND ASK ME TO DANCE
DON’T WANT A MR. RIGHT, JUST MR. TONIGHT
IF HE’S HERE, HE’S OUT OF SIGHT
AND I… CAME HERE..TO PARTY!

THE PICKIN’S ARE SLIM, THESE BOYS ARE SHADY AND DIM
EENY MEANY MINY MO, I’LL TAKE HIM
TURN THE MUSIC UP, KEEP FILLING MY DIXIE CUP
I’LL TELL MY COMMON SENSE TO HUSH ON UP
HE AIN’T A TOM CRUISE, NO BRAD PITT
IT GIVES ME THE BLUES BUT I’LL COMMIT
‘CAUSE I … CAME HERE….TO PARTY!

CHORUS:
IT’S 1 SHOT, 2 SHOT, 3, BRING ON THE WHISKEY
1 SHOT, 2 SHOT, 3, LET’S HAVE A LOOK-SEE
GOIN’ HOME ALONE, LORD, THAT’D BE A PITY
WHEN I COULD
*WHISTLES*
DRINK YOU PRETTY

BUY ME ANOTHER ROUND, SO I DON’T COME DOWN
I GOTTA PACE MYSELF BEFORE I HIT THE GROUND
MY EYES ARE GLAZED, I’M IN THE WHISKEY DAZE
BUT LOOK BOY HOW MUCH YOU HAVE CHANGED
ALL MY GIRLS SAY, I OUGHTA RUN AWAY
(BUT LADIES!) IT’S ABOUT TIME TO MAKE MY PLAY
‘CAUSE I’M… FINALLY READY… TO PARTY!


CHORUS REPEAT

CHORUS X 2
*WHISTLES*
DRINK YOU PRETTY

LOVE WITH YOU

BOY, WHEN YOUR EYES MEET MINE

I GET A FEELING DOWN DEEP INSIDE

YOU GOT THAT JAMES DEAN, BLUE JEAN, WHITE T-SHIRT

IT KINDA MAKES A GIRL WANNA GET TO WORK ON YOU, WORK ON YOU

IT’S MORE THAN A CHEMICAL REACTION

AND IT AIN’T SOME PHYSICAL ATTRACTION

IT’S MAKING ME WANT YOU, NEED YOU A LITTLE BIT MORE

THAN I’VE EVER WANTED ANYBODY ELSE BEFORE

CHORUS

I’M IN LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE WITH YOU

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE WITH YOU

NO HERE AIN’T A DAMN THING THAT YOU CAN SAY

TO MAKE ME CHANGE MY MIND BABY

I’M IN LOVE

WITH YOU, YA, I’M IN LOVE

ALL DAY I’M THINKIN’ ABOUT YOU

EVEN WHEN I SLEEP BOY, I’M DREAMING ABOUT YOU

AND I KNOW, YOU KNOW WHAT I’M ABOUT TO SAY

BUT MAYBE YOU COULD HEAR ME OUT ANYWAY

CHORUS REPEAT

WITH YOU, YA,I’M IN LOVE WITH YOU

HERE WE GO BABY NOW,

DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO

DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO

DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO

DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO- ALRIGHT.


CHORUS REPEAT

WITH YOU, YA, I’M IN LOVE

( LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE )

YOU GOT THAT JAMES DEAN, BLUE JEAN, WHITE T-SHIRT       

IT KINDA MAKES A GIRL WANNA GET TO WORK

( LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE )

YA MAKE ME WANT YOU, NEED YOU A LITTLE BIT MORE         

THAN I’VE EVER WANTED ANYBODY ELSE BEFORE

I’M IN LOVE, LOVE, LOVE LOVE WITH YOU.

TELLURIDE

THE LINES ‘ROUND YOUR EYES, TELL A STORY
ONE THAT YOU HAVEN’T TOLD ME YET
IF I PUT THEM THERE BABY, I’M SORRY
THAT’S A MISTAKE I WON’T SOON FORGET

ONCE WE USED TO LOVE FIERCELY
NOW IS THAT ALL IN MY MIND?
I PROMISE THAT I’VE LOOKED INTENTLY
THERE’S ONLY ONE ANSWER I FIND.


CHORUS
LET ME TAKE YOU BACK TO TELLURIDE
ON THAT COLORADO MOUNTAINSIDE
CAUSE I REMEMBER SNOWY NIGHTS
AND THAT’S THE HAPPIEST I’D SEEN YOU IN A WHILE


WE CAN STAY UP ‘TIL SUNRISE
AND PRETEND LIKE IT’LL NEVER COME
LIKE WE USED TO IN OUR PAST LIVES
CAUSE I CANT STAND WHO WE’VE BECOME


CHORUS
LET ME TAKE YOU BACK TO TELLURIDE
ON THAT COLORADO MOUNTAINSIDE
CAUSE I REMEMBER SNOWY NIGHTS

OH, THAT’S THE HAPPIEST I’D SEEN YOU IN A WHILE
THE HAPPIEST I’D SEEN YOU IN A WHILE


BRIDGE
I ONLY WANNA SEE YOU WHOLE AGAIN
I ONLY WANNA SEE YOU SMILE
ONE MORE TIME AGAIN


CHORUS REPEAT


LAST CHORUS:
LET ME TAKE YOU BACK TO TELLURIDE
ON THAT COLORADO MOUNTAINSIDE
CAUSE I KNOW THERE’S STILL TIME
TO FIX WHAT’S BROKEN INSIDE
LET ME FIX WHAT’S BROKEN INSIDE

HO DOWN

OOO,
OOO


KICKIN’ UP DUST IN MY CHEVEROLET,
YA BETTER KNOW YOU  GOT HELL TO PAY
THERE’S WHISKEY AND LEAD ON THE PASSENGER SEAT

HEARD I’VE GOT A NEW FRIEND TO MEET


WHOSE GOT BLEACH BLONDE HAIR AND A PRETTY FACE
THAT YOU’VE BEEN SHOWING HER OFF ALL OVER THE PLACE
DID YA THINK I WOULDN’T HEAR THAT I’D LET IT GO?
THEN THE WOMAN YOU’VE LOVED AIN’T SOMEONE YOU KNOW


CHORUS:
YOU LYIN’ CHEATIN’, NO GOOD DECEIVIN’,
KINDA REDNECK MAN, I’M DONE BELIEVIN’
IF YOU’LL DO IT ONCE, YOU’LL DO IT AGAIN.
BYE BYE BABY YOU’RE A DEAD MAN
THERE’S GONNA BE A HO DOWN.
A REDNECK SHOW DOWN.
I’LL DO A TWO STEP BANG BANG.
I’LL GET IN LINE ON THE CHAIN GANG


WELL THE FANDANGO ALWAYS STARTS REAL SLOW,
BUT IT’S FIERY AND HOT LIKE A TANGO
WITH ONE MISSTEP YOU CAN LOSE CONTROL
BUT I’LL LEAD, HONEY, YOU CAN FOLLOW

WE’RE GONNA DANCE LIKE NEVER BEFORE
WHEN I PULL IN THE DRIVE AND KICK DOWN THAT DOOR
YA BETTER MOVE TO THE BEAT OF THE BULLETS FROM A GUN
CAUSE I’M REQUESTIN’ A FAST ONE
 
CHORUS REPEAT:

BRIDGE:
OOO, NOW, YOU’RE BOTH AS MUCH TO BLAME
AND SO BOY, YOU’RE FATE WILL BE THE SAME


CHORUS REPEAT:


THERE’S GONNA BE A HO DOWN.

                                     (A HO DOWN)
 A REDNECK SHOW DOWN.

                       (SHOW DOWN)
I’LL DO A 2 STEP BANG BANG.     

                         (BANG, BANG)

THERE’S GONNA BE A HO DOWN.

WORN OUT MY WELCOME


THERE’S A QUIET, IN THE BEDROOM
WHEN YOU TURN OFF THE LIGHTS AND GO TO SLEEP
OUR POOR OLD MATTRESS USED TO SEE LOVE
NOW THAT’S JUST A DISTANT MEMORY

YOU TREAT ME LIKE A STRANGER, EVEN THOUGH I LIVE HERE
IF I WALK INTO THE ROOM, YOU WALK AWAY
DID IT HIT YOU LIKE WHIPLASH? OR HAS IT BEEN BURNING
LIKE A FIRE YOU CAN NO LONGER CONTAIN?


CHORUS:
HOW HAVE I OUT WORN MY WELCOME?
DO MY EYES REALLY SEE
THE DAY OUR LOVE BECAME A BURDEN?
I GUESS I’LL GO BEFORE I’M ASKED TO LEAVE


YOUR DAMN OLD LEVIS, THEY’RE FADED AND RIPPED NOW
GOD FORBID I EVER GAVE THOSE AWAY
AND YOU’VE HAD THOSE BOOTS SINCE BEFORE YOU MET ME
THE SOLES WORN OUT BUT YOU WEAR THEM EVERYDAY
 
CHORUS REPEAT


BRIDGE:
LIKE A DIRT ROAD, A HAND ME DOWN CAR
OLD AND FAMILIAR WAS YOUR WAY
AND LIKE THAT TATTOO YOU WEAR ON  YOUR ARM
I NEVER THOUGHT I’D FADE AWAY


CHORUS REPEAT


WORN DOWN FLOORBOARDS ACROSS THE HARDWOOD
IN A PATH THAT LEADS RIGHT TO THE DOOR
HONEY WHEN I’M GONE, TELL ME WILL YOU MISS ME
OR SAY I’M MORE THAN WHAT YOU BARGAINED FOR
