all Alan Jackson lyrics



Right on the Money
Let's begin with the day I met her
How fast this good old boy's world got better
Sky got bluer, the grass got greener
Just the first few seconds after I first seen her
Like my favorite song on a new set of speakers
My best old jeans and my broke in sneakers
A home run pitch floating right down the middle
The sweet music made when the bow hits the fiddle
She's
Right on the money
She goes directly to my heart
And when it comes to loving me
She's everything, I mean bulls eye perfect
She's right on the money
She's no red lights when I've overslept
She's a three point jump shot that's nothing but net
A hand full of aces, the dealer's done dealing
I'm forever on a roll, that's how she's got me feeling
She's
Right on the money
She goes direct to my heart
And when it comes to loving me, she's everything, I mean bulls eye perfect
She's
Right on the money
She's the best cook that's ever melted cheese
I ain't much around the house, but I aim to please
There's absolutely no reason to doubt her
When she says I wouldn't last ten minutes without her
She's
Right on the money
She goes directly to my heart
And when it comes to loving me
She's everything, I mean bulls eye perfect
She's
Right on the moneyback to top
Gone Crazy
Here I am alone again tonight
In this old empty house
It's hard to learn what you don't
Think you need
You can't live without
Never leave the sound
Of the telephone
But ever since you left, I've been gone

Gone crazy, goinout of my mind
I've asked myself the reasons, at
Least a thousand times
Goinup and down this hallway
Tryinto leave the pain behind
Ever since you left, I've been gone

I never saw your face this many times
When you were really here
The things you said I never
Understood
Are now crystal clear
I never spent this much time
At home
But ever since you left, I've been gone

Little Man
Alan jackson

I remember walk'in round the court square sidewalk
Lookin' in windows at things I couldn't want
There's johnson's hardware and morgans jewelry
And the ol' lee king's apothecary
They ware the little man
The little man

I go back now and the stores are all empty
Except for an old coke sign from 1950
Boarded up like they never existed
Or renovated and called historic districts
There goes the little man
There goes the little man

Chorus:

Now the court square's just a set of streets
That the people go round but they seldom think
Bout the little man that built this town
Before the big money shut em down
And killed the little man
Oh the little man

He pumped your gas and he cleaned your glass
And one cold rainy night he fixed your flat
The new stores came where you do it yourself
You buy a lotto ticket and food off the shelf
Forget about the little man
Forget about that little man

He hung on there for a few more years
But he couldn't sell slurpees
And he wouldn't sell beer
Now the bank rents the station
To a down the road
And sell velvet elvis and
Second-hand clothes
There goes little man
There goes another little man

Now the are lined up in a concrete strip
You can buy the world with just one trip
And save a penny cause it's jumbo size
They don't even realize
They'er killin' the little man
Oh the little man

It wasn't long when I was a child
An old black man came with his plow
He broke the ground where we grew our garden
Back before we'd all forgot
About the little man
The little man
Long live the little man
God bless the little manback to top
What a Day Yesterday Was
Looking through these old photographs
Don't they bring some good memories back
Some of them make us laugh
And some make us cry
I'm glad we've kept all of these souvenirs
To prove that our love was here
Look at how happy we were
Pictures don't lie

(chorus)
If forever should end today
And there's no tomorrow for us
What a day yesterday was

Here's one of us with you calm and cool
But look at me acting a fool
And here's one of us on the ferris wheel
At the fair
Hey, haven't we had some fun
The best may be yet to come
We may have a hundred years
Still left to share
But...

(chorus)

Let's close this book of photographs
And let's turn out the lights
And love for the moment
As if it were the last

Hurtin' Comes Easy
I've spent a lifetime lookinfor love
Just when I find it, it comes undone
I've tried so hard to make love happen
Like some never endinpattern
I end up on the sad side of the fun

Hurtincomes easy
Hurtincomes easy
Hurtincomes easy
For me

Well, I've seen people that got it made
They've got someone and love looks great
But me, I've been to every doctor
I've tried it wild and tried it proper
And I always end up watchinlove walk away
That's ok

Chorus

I've gotten used to getting over
And hopefully as I grow older
Love won't be so difficult to see
But now for me

I'll Go on Loving You
Alan jackson

I'll go on loving you

When I look into your soft green eyes
And when I see your delicate body
Revealed to me as you slip off your dress
I'm reminded that what I feel for you
Will remain strong and true
Long after the pleasures of the flesh and

I'll go on loving you
I'll go on loving you
I'll go on loving you

And be it the wind or the rain
Or the moon up in the sky
The spin of the earth
Or the change in the tides
I don't know what brought us together
What strange forces of nature
Conspired to construct
The present from the past but

Chorus:

When I look into your soft green eyes
And when I see your delicate body
Revealed to me as you slip off your dress
I'm reminded that what I feel for you
Will remain strong and true
Long after the pleasures of the flesh and

Another Good Reason
(harley allen/carson chamberlain)

I woke up the other night
Lying on the floor
Right beside someone
I've never seen before
She said my name's juliet
And romeo you ain't
Thats another good reason not to drink

Thats another good reason not to drink
When I'm sober I'm almost a saint
If I keep going on like this
I'll end up like ole hank
Thats another good reason not to drink

I cant go see my best friend
He said stay away
Just because of what I said
On his wedding day
He oughta call a sherman
Cause she looks just like a tank
Thats another good reason not to drink

Thats another good reason not to drink
When I'm sober I'm almost a saint
If I keep going on like this
I'll end up like ole hank
Thats another good reason not to drink

I'm gonna sue to city
About that policeman
Last night as I left the bar
He stepped right on my hand
He said 'are you drunk or blind? '
I said 'let me think'.
Thats another good reason not to drink

Thats another good reason not to drink
When I'm sober I'm almost a saint
If I keep going on like this
I'll end up like ole hank
Thats another good reason not to drink

Thats another good reason not to drink
When I'm sober I'm almost a saint
If I keep going on like this
I'll end up like ole hank
Thats another good reason
Baby let me in I'm freezing
Another good reason not to drinkback to top
A Woman's Love
By alan jackson

I have felt it
And I have held it
I have known
A woman's love
I have tasted
And I have wasted
A woman's love
And I know
I'll never understand
All the little things
That make it grand
A woman's love
And I know
I'll never come face to face
With any thing
That takes the place
Of a woman's love

Well I have kiss it
Tried to resist it
I have missed
A woman's love
And I have hated
Taken for granted
A woman's love

Well I have needed
And I have pleaded
And I have lost
A woman's love

And I have worshipped
And I have cursed it
A woman's love
Well I adore it
Thank God for it
A woman's loveback to top
Dancin' All Around It
She said, I don't usually dance
This close to strangers
You know a girl can't be too
Careful with her heart
But I saw you and thought that you
Looked harmless
But when you smile that way I'm not
So sure you are

I said, I don't usually come here
For the dancinyou can tell that by the way I move
When I saw you I thought that it
Was hopeless
But I just had to ask you for a
Dance or two

Somewhere in the stars it must
Be written
Girl we've got to take this chance
That we've been given
If there's a heaven here on earth
I think we've found it
If this ain't love we're
Dancinall around it

The music's stopped and we're still
Holding each other
This feels like the beginning
Of forever

Chorus

If this ain't love we're
Dancinall around it
She said I don't usually dance

Amarillo
The time has come,
You're really leavinyou always told me that
You wanted to
I guess I never thought
It would happen
I guess I never really wanted it to
The world is calling you and
You must answer
But you can take me with you
In you drams

If you ever get back to amarillo
In a shiny new car or
Worn out shoes
If you ever get back to amarillo
I'll be waitinfor you

Your sister told me you were workinat some office out in tinsel town
Don't forget about those who
Love you
They'll be there for you if you
Get down
I believe in you and all you're after
I hope you end up where you
Want to be

Chorus

Thirty years now have
Gone by quickly
I still think of you from time to time
My wife died early, I've got children
I'm happy and my health is fine
I often wondered if you found your
Freedom
I sometimes wonder if I should
Have gone
