Meat and Potato Man
Meat and potato man

I like my steak well done, my taters fried
Football games on monday night
It's just who I am
A meat and potato man

I like my coffee black
Oltv shows
My women hot and my beer ice cold
It's just who I am
A meat and potato man

I don't like caviar, sushi bars,
The irs or phony stars
I'm a haggard fan
A meat and potato man

I like my fishinholes, lightninbugs
Flatt ‘nscruggs, and my woman's love
It's just who I am
A meat and potato man

I like my wrangler jeans, cowboy boots
Cornbread and beans and country roots
It's just who I am
A meat and potato man

I don't like politics, hypocrites
Folks with poodles dressed like kids
I'm a hounddog fan
A meat and potato man…yeah, that's what I am,
A meat and potato manback to top
When Somebody Loves You
When your heart is all alone every second
Seems so long
When it's just you, you can't see through
Those ol' clouds that rain so blue

But when somebody loves you
There's nothing you can't do
When somebody loves you
It's easy to get through
When somebody loves you
The way I love you

When it's late, the sun hangs low
By yourself, nowhere to go
Sing a song, you dance alone
Play solitaire and stare at the phone

But when somebody loves you
There's nothing you can't do
When somebody loves you
It's easy to get through
When somebody loves you
The way I love you

So let's put aside our foolish pride
And let our hearts say hello
We both agree we're just no good
At bein' on our own

'cause when somebody loves you
There's nothing you can't do
When somebody loves you
It's easy to get through
When somebody loves you
The way I love you

The way I love you
The way I love youback to top
The Thrill Is Back
The thrill is back

Well I'm ready to raise the blinds in this place
Think I'll rejoin the human race
You said yes, now you're wearing my ring
Guess I can stop playinolb.b. king

Chorus:
‘cause the thrill is back, the heartache's gone
Time stands still, baby love lives on
The room spins around, when you're kissinme
The thrill is back like it used to be

I sure could use a haircut and shave
Now that I'm crawling outta my cave
Since you said we were through
I've been down with a case of the blues

Chorus:
But the thrill is back, the heartache's gone
Time stands still, baby love lives on
The room spins around, when you're kissinme
The thrill is back like it used to be

Bridge:
I think I'd better give my doctor a call
And tell him I won't need that prozac after all

Chorus:
‘cause the thrill is back, the heartache's gone
Time stands still, baby love lives on
The room spins around, when you're kissinme
The thrill is back like it used to be

Chorus:
Yeah the thrill is back, the heartache's gone
Time stands still, baby love lives on
The room spins around, when you're kissinme
The thrill is back like it used to be

www.memory
I know your leavin'
I see the signs
You're gonna walk out on this heart of mine
You'll never call me
You'll never write

You've made your mind up; your gone tonight
If some rainy day you're all alone
You feel like talking, you can log me on

At www.memory,
I'll be waiting for you patiently
If you feel the need, just click on me
At www.memory

You won't even have to hold me
Or look into my eyes
You can tell me that you love me
Through your keyboard and wires
No, you won't have to touch me
Or even take my hand
Just slide your little mouse around
Until you see it land

At www.memory
I'll be waiting for you patiently
If you feel the need, just click on me
At www.memory
If you feel like love, just click on me

Where I Come From
Well I was rollin' wheels and shiftin' gears
'round that jersey turnpike
When barney stopped me with his gun
Ten minutes after midnight
Said sir you broke the limit in this rusty ol' truck
I don't know about that accent son
Just where did you come from

I said where I come from
It's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch sitiin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to heaven
Where I come from

Well I was south of detroit city
I pulled in this country kitchen
To try their brand of barbecue
The sign said finger-lickin'
Well I paid the tab and the lady aked me
How'd you like my biscuit
I'll be honest with you ma'am
It ain't like mama fixed it

Cause where I come from
It's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch pickin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to heaven
Where I come from

I was chasin' sun on 101
Somewhere around ventura
I lost a universal joint and I had to use my finger
This tall lady stopped and asked
If I had plans for dinner
Said no thanks ma'am, back home
We like the girls that sing soprano

Cause where I come from
It's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch sitiin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to heaven
Where I come from

Well I was headed home on 65
Somewhere around kentucky
The cb rang for a bobtail rig
That's rollin' on like thunder
Well I answered him and he asked me
Aren't you from out in tulsa
No, but you might'a seen me there
I just dropped a load of salsa

Where I come from it's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch pickin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
Workin' hard to get to heaven
Where I come from

Where I come from yeah it's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta back porch pickin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
Workin' hard to get to heaven
Where I come from
Yeah where I come from
A lotta front porch sitiin'
Starin' up at heaven
Where I come from
Where I come from
Tryin' to make a livin'
Tryin' to make a livin'
Oh, where I come from
Where I come from
Yeah where I come from
Get back down there sometimes
Where I come fromback to top
I Still Love You
I still love you

The door still creaks, the roof still leaks
When the rain comes fallindown
The dog still barks at every car that comes around
My boss at work, he's still a jerk
That ain't nothing new
I'm such a dope, my heart's still broke
‘cause I still love you

Chorus:
My favorite picture of you is still on my windowsill
You wrote to me don't ever change
And I'm afraid I never will
When day is done the night still comes
And I still toss and turn
I still try to have some pride,
While the bridge still burns
My arms still ache, my heart still waits
And I know there's no use
I'm still a fool and it's so cruel
‘cause I still love you

Chorus:
My favorite picture of you is still on my windowsill
You wrote to me don't ever change
And I'm afraid I never will
The door still creaks, the roof still leaks
But that ain't nothing new
Thanks for the call, I guess that's all
Except I still love youback to top
Life or Love
Life or love

I tried to stay on the straight and narrow
But I've walked a crooked path
And I've felt worthy of forgiveness
And deservinheaven's wrath
Right on the money and off by a mile
Ahead of my time and way out of style

Chorus:
But I'm hangintough, I ain't had enough
I ain't givinup on life or love
Well I try to stay away from the bottle
But I've reached out for the glass
I try to pull back on the throttle
But I still run out of gas
I've been an angel, but never a saint
Hung with the devil, don't nobody faint

Chorus:
‘cause I'm hangintough, I ain't had enough
I ain't givinup on life or love

Tag:
Yesterday's history, today is a chance
Tomorrow is a mystery, so I'm makinplans

Chorus:
To keep hangintough, I ain't had enough
I ain't givinup on life or love
I keep hangintough, I ain't had enough
I ain't givinup on life or love…life or loveback to top
A Love Like That
A love like that

Well I've been wonderinwhat I've been missini guess I should have known
But my heart does and it ain't whisperinit tells me just what it wants

Someone who knows what I like in my coffee
And the shape of my olhat
A lover who always looks at me not through me
I need a love like that

Chorus:
I need a love like that
I could use a little sun on my back
A truck needs a highway, a train needs a track
I need a love like that

Well I need a new car but I can't afford it
So I keep patchinthat olflat
My heart's lonely and I can't ignore it
I need a love like that

Chorus:
Yeah, I need a love like that
I could use a little sun on my back
A truck needs a highway, a train needs a track
I need a love like that

Two young people dancinin the daylight
They don't care where they're at
Waitinon sunset holdinon so tight
I need a love like that

Chorus:
Yeah, I need a love like that
I could use a little sun on my back
A truck needs a highway, a train needs a track
I need a love like that

One little baby hidinin the shadow
Of her daddy's hat
Lovinand trustinblindly she'll follow
I need a love like that

Chorus:
Yeah, I need a love like that
I could use a little sun on my back
A truck needs a highway, a train needs a track
And I need a love like that

It's Alright to Be a Redneck
Ba bom bom
Ba bom bom
Ba bom ba bom ba bom bom
Ba bom bom
Ba bom bom
Ba bom ba bom ba bom bom

It's alright to be a redneck
It's alright to ride around in a dirty old truck
Catch a bunch of fish and shoot a bunch of duck
It's alright to be a redneck

Chase around the girls on friday night
You wanna make 'em feel alright
It's alright, it's alright,
It's alright to be a redneck

It's alright to be a redneck
It's alright to work hard in the sun all day
Drink a couple beers after bailin' hay
It's good to be a redneck

Drive by ernie's for some bbq
Showin' off your brand new boots
It's alright, it's alright,
It's alright to be a redneck

The kid's are gonna cry
And the chicken's gonna fry you know it
The car wont run
So your cousins comin' by to tow it

Ba bom bom
Ba bom bom
Ba bom ba bom ba bom bom
Ba bom bom
Ba bom bom
Ba bom ba bom ba bom bom

It's alright to be a redneck
It's alright to have a girl named thelma-lou
Who don't mind a little kiss when ya got a little chew
Party on the road by the light of the moon
Dancin' to a country tune

It's alright, it's alright
It's alright to be a redneck

Maybe I Should Stay Here
Maybe I should stay here

Maybe I should stay here
For the rest of my life
My compliments to you dear
You're so easy on the eyes
I'm likinhow my jack and water mixes with your
Estée lauder oohso maybe I should stay here
And keep makineyes at you

Maybe you should stay here
I beg you not to go
There's something I must say dear
I'm compelled to let you know
My intuition makes me think
That holdinyou's a possibility
So maybe you should stay here
And keep makineyes at me

Some lover lose, some lovers win
But honey I don't care
Somebody said only fools rush in
But me, I'm already there

So maybe we should stay here
‘cause here's where we belong
Like me the night is lonely
Like you the night is young
There's no reason why
We shouldn't have these feelings
If it happens naturally, oh yeah
So maybe we should stay here
For all eternity…oh baby, we should stay here…just
You and meback to top
Three Minute Positive Not Too Country Up-Tempo Love Song
Three minute positive not too country
Up-tempo love song

This is a three minute song
To tell her that I love her
And how wonderful we get along
A sweet sentiment that's borderline stick
A lotta right and not much wrong

It's a little bit edgy, but softer than spaghetti
Weak yet redundantly strong
It's a three minute positive
Not too country up-tempo love song

Chorus:
Yeah, it's a three minute positive
Not too country up-tempo love song
It's a way for me to tell her that I love her
But it can't be too long
There'll be no drinkin no cheatin
No lyin no leavinthat stuff it just don't belong
In a three minute positive
Not too country up-tempo love song

You won't hear four-letter words
Just me tellinher
That she's the every breath I draw
And how I can't live without her
And I could never doubt her
‘cause she could never do no wrong

Well it's the right amount of timinthe proper form of rhymina little guitar
Then it's gone
It's a three minute positive
Not too country up-tempo love song

Chorus

Tag:
Yeah in a three minute positive

Not too country up-tempo love song
