  1. The Bad in MeLYRICS
    Startin' With Me

    The Bad in Me

    I had a one night stand with my best friend's baby sister
    And to this day he still won't speak to me
    I pawned my grandpa's old guitar in college
    For a case of beer and a tank of gasoline

    I took a swing at my old man one Christmas
    I never dreamed that it would be his last
    I wish mom had rung my neck when she caught me with those cigarettes
    Which reminds me, I'm down to my last pack

    If I had a dime for half the things I did
    That didn't make no sense at all, I'd be living a little higher on the hog
    If only I'd've known that later on down the road
    I'd look back and not like what I see
    I'd've changed a lot of things... Startin' with me

    I called my brother everything I could think of
    The night he wouldn't bail me out of jail
    I lost a job most folks 'round here would die for
    By laying out all night and raising hell

    And I let a woman that I love slip through my fingers
    Chalk another dumb move up to my foolish pride
    I wasn't there standin' by the bed when the preacher bowed his head
    With the family, the day my grandma die

    If I had a dime for half the things I did
    That didn't make no sense at all, I'd be living a little higher on the hog
    If only I'd've known that later on down the road
    I'd look back and not like what I see

    Ohh, I'd've changed a lot of things... Startin' with me

    If only I'd've known that later on down the road
    I'd look back and not like what I see
    Ohh, I'd've changed a lot of things... Startin' with me
    Startin' with me...
  2. Something About a WomanLYRICS
    Startin' With Me

    Something About a Woman

    She pulled her hair back to sun her shoulders
    Took the oil and rubbed it all over her soft skin
    Oh I’m a lucky man
    She wasn’t wantin’ any suntan lines so she
    Reached back and she untied that little string
    And then she smiled at me

    And blew a kiss right off of her fingertips
    I don’t know what it is

    But there’s something about a woman
    Yeah some kind sweet little something
    That I may never understand
    Yeah some kind of gift they’re given
    That makes this life worth livin’
    And makes a man a man
    Oh there’s nothing like that
    Somethin’ about a woman

    I sat there for a while and wondered
    As she took a nap there under that summer sky
    And then I realized

    There are things in life that are meant to be
    Maybe left a mystery

    But there’s something about a woman
    Yeah some kind sweet little something
    That I may never understand
    Yeah some kind of gift they’re given
    That makes this life worth livin’
    And makes a man a man
    Oh there’s nothing like that
    Somethin’ about a woman

  5. GhostsLYRICS
    Startin' With Me

    Ghosts

    He said he had to stop, hadn’t had a drop of anything
    Stronger than coffee
    In ten months, three weeks, and one long day

    He pushed away his plate and said its better late than never done
    When it comes to getting right
    It took a while but I saw the light

    He said some things, they cast long shadows
    That I never will outrun
    Everyday I spend livin’ – with

    Ghosts of all the things that I’ve done wrong
    Grab a chair ‘cause the list is long
    I could write you a country song
    ‘Bout the reasons I’ll be goin’ home
    To a house full of memories
    Things I wish I’d done differently
    But when I’m feelin’ weak they keep me strong
    Ghosts of all the things that I’ve done wrong

    Said there’s a spot of paint and it just ain’t the right shade
    But it covers up the hole I made
    Where I broke my wrist the night she left
    And there’s a lot of friends that I ain’t seen in a lot of years
    Some are still hangin’ around
    In old pictures I can’t take down

    He said some things they cast long shadows
    That I never will outrun
    Everyday I do battle – with

    Ghosts of all the things that I’ve done wrong
    Grab a chair ‘cause the list is long
    I could write you a country song
    ‘Bout the reasons I’ll be goin’ home
    To a house full of memories
    Things I wish I’d done differently
    But when I’m feelin’ weak they keep me strong
    Ghosts of all the things that I’ve done wrong

    Yeah, I’ve got a heart full of memories
    Things I wish I’d done differently
    But when I’m feelin’ weak they keep me strong
    Ghosts of all the things – I’ve done wrong

    He said he had to stop, hadn’t had a drop of anything
    Stronger than coffee
    In ten months, three weeks, and one long day

  6. Eight Second RideLYRICS
    Startin' With Me

    Eight Second Ride

    (Come on)
    I said hey girl, what’s your name, haven’t I seen you before
    I recognize them dark green eyes
    When you walked through the door
    Are you alone, or are you with someone

    She said “A matter of fact I’m not”
    So I took her hand, it’s when it all began
    And we headed towards the parking lot

    And she said “Hey boy do you mind
    Takin’ me home tonight
    ‘Cause I ain’t never seen a country boy
    With tires on his truck this high
    I said climb on up, but honey watch the cup
    That I’m spittin’ my dip inside
    And hold on tight, ‘cause it’s going to be wilder
    Than any eight second ride

    We went ridin’ around rockin’ to the sound
    Of “A County Boy Can Survive”
    And I knew then she was my kind of girl
    ‘Cause she was singin’ every single line
    Then she slid on over, put my hand on her shoulder
    And I asked her what she wanted to do
    She said "It really don’t matter where we go
    Just as long as I’m ridin’ with you”

    And she said “Hey boy do you mind
    Takin’ me home tonight
    ‘Cause I ain’t never seen a country boy
    With tires on his truck this high
    I said climb on up, but honey watch the cup
    That I’m spittin’ my dip inside
    And hold on tight, ‘cause it’s going to be wilder
    Than any eight second ride

    So we headed out to Old Tobacco Road
    Put the tailgate down and we made love
    She said “True country boys are hard to find
    But I found one wilder than any eight second ride”
    And she said “Hey boy do you mind
    Takin’ me home tonight
    ‘Cause I ain’t never seen a country boy
    With tires on his truck this high
    I said climb on up, but honey watch the cup
    That I’m spittin’ my dip inside
    And hold on tight, ‘cause it’s going to be wilder
    Than any eight second ride

    Yeah hold on tight ‘cause it’s gonna be wilder
    Than any eight second ride

  7. Hard Not to Love YouLYRICS
    Startin' With Me

    Hard Not to Love You

    I’ve always been the kind of man
    To jump the gun, and cut and run
    Stayin’ one step ahead of that ol’ ball and chain
    Settlin’ down never crossed my mind
    It was easier to leave the knot untied
    It looks like a lot of things have changed

    You’re makin’ it hard not to love you
    Makin’ it tough on a man like me
    Who’s always found a way to get around this kind of thing
    ‘Cause when you put your lovin’ on me
    I can’t help feelin’ like I do
    Girl, you’re makin’ it hard not to love you

    This mornin’ when you kissed my cheek
    I was sufferin’ from a lack of sleep
    ‘Cause we stayed up makin’ love half the night
    Well I must have got my second wind
    ‘Cause just like that it was on again
    Nothin’s ever been easier for me in all my life

    You’re makin’ it hard not to love you
    Makin’ it tough on a man like me
    Who’s always found a way to get around this kind of thing
    ‘Cause when you put your lovin’ on me
    I can’t help feelin’ like I do
    Girl, you’re makin’ it hard not to love you

    Yeah baby when you put your lovin’ on me
    I can’t help feelin’ like I do
    Girl, you’re makin’ it hard not to love you
    Baby, you’re makin’ it hard not to love you
    Hard not to love you
    Yeah you’re makin’ it hard

  8. The Bottle and MeLYRICS
    Startin' With Me

    The Bottle and Me

    Didn’t come in here for your sympathy
    And a honky-tonk queen is the last thing I need
    Just set me up with your best whiskey
    Yeah this is just between the bottle and me

    I don’t wanna talk, I don’t need a friend
    I don’t think I stuttered when I said
    I’m here to deal with a memory
    Yeah this is just between the bottle and me

    A man can’t face the cold hard truth
    With nothin’ less than 90 proof
    And closin’ time is when I’ll leave
    ‘Til then it’s just between this bottle and me

    You’re a good bartender, I know you wanna help
    So if you see me talkin’ to myself
    Just walk away and let me be
    Yeah this is just between the bottle and me

    A man can’t face the cold hard truth
    With nothin’ less than 90 proof
    And closin’ time is when I’ll leave
    ‘Til then it’s just between this bottle and me

    A man can’t face the cold hard truth
    With nothin’ less than 90 proof
    And closin’ time is when I’ll leave
    ‘Til then it’s just between this bottle and me

    ‘Til then it’s just between this bottle and me

    Startin' With Me

    Places to Run

    I’ve lived all my life
    With no ties that bind
    There wasn’t anything or anyone
    That I couldn’t leave behind
    I could always find a getaway
    From what I’s hidin’ from
    But it’s lookin’ like I’ve run out
    Of places to run

    Everywhere I go
    And everything I do
    There ain’t a corner that I turn
    That ain’t one big deja vu
    She told me when I walked away
    This day would come
    She was right I’ve run out of places to run

    Everywhere I go
    And everything I do
    There ain’t a corner that I turn
    That ain’t one big deja vu
    I could always find a getaway
    From what I’s hidin’ from
    She was right, I’ve run out
    Of places to run

    Oh I’ve finally run out of places to run

    Startin' With Me

    Long Night with You

    Tryin’ to keep that wolf at bay
    Twelve out of twenty-four hours a day
    I’m bustin’ it, I’m breakin’ my back
    Swing that hammer, stomp that shovel
    Boss man says “Boy you’re pullin’ a double”
    It’s always me pickin’ up the slack
    Nobody said it was easy

    But girl it’s been a long hard day
    It seems we work our lives away
    Five o’clock I’m beat, dead on these two feet
    But girl when I come home to you
    The only thing I wanna do
    Is baby hold you tight, ‘cause all that gets me through
    After a long day is a long night with you

    One of those nights where we don’t sleep
    The two of us fittin’ like a puzzle piece
    Turnin’ up the heat with the lights down low
    So go ahead honey and pour the wine
    I’m a little overdue for some overtime in your lovin’ arms
    I ain’t letting you go
    Yeah tonight we’ll take it slow and easy

    But girl it’s been a long hard day
    It seems we work our lives away
    Five o’clock I’m beat, dead on these two feet
    But girl when I come home to you
    The only thing I wanna do
    Is baby hold you tight, ‘cause all that gets me through
    After a long day is a long night with you

    Girl when I come home to you
    The only thing I wanna do
    Is baby hold you tight, ‘cause all that gets me through
    After a long day is a long night
    Girl it’s been a long day and I’ll need a long night with you
    Just a little bit longer, baby
    Just a little bit longer with you

    You Can Thank Dixie (duet with Randy Owen)

    If you’ve ever ate a peach from down in Georgia
    Just like me you’re a diehard Earnhardt fan
    If you’ve ever had a sip of ol’ Jack Daniels
    Or raised your glass to “Sweet Home Alabam’

    You can thank Dixie
    You can thank Dixie for that

    If you’ve ever got a whiff of orange blossoms in the wind
    When they start to bloomin’ in the spring
    If you like your catfish fried with buttered grits there on the side
    And you swear that boy from Memphis is still the king

    You can thank Dixie
    You can thank Dixie for that

    If you’ve ever held one of them pretty little southern bells
    And you know what I’m talkin’ ‘bout y’all
    If you like the way I say “Yes, sir” and “Yes, ma’am”And the way I sing my songs with a southern drawl

    (Then) you can thank Dixie
    You can thank Dixie for that
    Yeah, you can thank Dixie
    Y’all you can thank Dixie for that
