(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Bringing Back The Sunshine

Been forever since I've been gone
Haven't held you in so long
Miss you more than words can say
Guess we've got a little off track
But love knows a way back
Through the storms and pouring rain

Got my hands on the wheel and I'm flying
Heart beat loud as the thunder oh
Ridin on a stampede of lightning oh
I'm bringing back the sunshine
Bringing back the sunshine
Baby, it's about time, oh

Every moment, every sweet kiss
All the loving that we both missed
It's okay to let em go
Yesterday's all but forgotten
And today we gonna start rocking
Somewhere underneath the rainbow

Got my hands on the wheel and I'm flying
Heart beat loud as the thunder oh
Ridin on a stampede of lightning oh
I'm bringing back the sunshine
Bringing back the sunshine
Baby, it's about time, oh
Oh yeah, bringing back, oh

Oh, bringing back the sunshine
Baby, it's about time, oh
Bringing back the sunshine
Baby, it's about time, oh

Bringing back, bringing back
Oh, I'm bringing back the sunshine
Baby, it's about time, oh
Bringing back, oh yeah

Neon Light

Ever since you left me
I've been ridin' 'round, cranking up a little country gold heartbreak
Cried and dried these tears
I don't know how much more missin' you I can take

I prayed, prayed, prayed
For a sign, sign, sign
Now there it is in the window
It's about time, damn time

There's a neon light at the end of the tunnel
It ain't all that bright, but even though it's subtle
It's got me feeling alright, gonna make it a double
There's a neon light at the end of the tunnel, tunnel, tunnel

I take a shot of I don't care what you're doing now
Chase that one with a cold screw you
When that's done, I just might wash it down
With a big pitcher of someone new

That blond blonde blonde
At the bar, bar, bar
See if she wants to try and break my heart, heart, heart

There's a neon light at the end of the tunnel
It ain't all that bright, but even though it's subtle
It's got me feeling alright, gonna make it a double
There's a neon light at the end of the tunnel, tunnel, tunnel

When we were together
I thought life would suck forever
Even though I knew better than the pain would never end
They say the night's darkest just before the dawn
Gets kissed by the day break, got down on my knees

And I prayed, prayed, prayed
For a sign, sign, sign
Now there it is in the window
It's about time, damn time

There's a neon light at the end of the tunnel
It ain't all that bright, but even though it's subtle
It's got me feeling alright, gonna make it a double
There's a neon light at the end of the tunnel tunnel tunnel

Lonely Tonight

(feat. Ashley Monroe)

I never thought you'd pick up the phone
It's Friday night you should be out on the town
Didn't think you'd be
Sitting at home all alone like me

Nothing on TV, nothing to do
Nothing to keep my mind off you and me
And the way it was
Are you thinking 'bout it now because
I could be there in five
One more, one last time

We don't have to be lonely tonight
(Need you, want you, I'm right here)
We don't have to be lonely tonight
(I know we shouldn't, but I don't care)
I don't wanna be right, I don't wanna be strong
I just wanna hold you 'til the heartbreak's gone
When the sun comes up, we can both move on
But we don't have to be lonely tonight

That taste, that touch, the fire I miss
Those "kiss-me" eyes, your red wine lips on mine
Like it used to be,
Baby, I want you, and you want me

We don't have to be lonely tonight
(Need you, want you, I'm right here)
We don't have to be lonely tonight
(I know we shouldn't, but I don't care)
I don't wanna be right, I don't wanna be strong
I just wanna hold you 'til the heartbreak's gone
When the sun comes up, we can both move on
But we don't have to be lonely tonight

I can be there in five
One more, one last time

We don't have to be lonely tonight
(Oh, I need you and I'm right here)
We don't have to be lonely tonight... tonight... tonight
Yeah... yeah

Gonna

I'm gonna take you for a date
Take you for a ride
Gonna get you over there on the passenger's side
I'm gonna put the radio on your favorite song
I'm gonna crank it up and get you singing along

Hey, hey (Hey, hey)
Alright (alright)
Girl I'm digging on it, on you tonight
Ain't it immediate, it's open now
Wishing a woman
It's the damn right
Hold you tight, baby I'm gonna

So what's it gonna take?
What's it gonna be?
We can pump it on the boulevard
Or kick it in the country
Me and you, you and me,
Money back, guaranteed
Love you every night in Daytona, I'm gonna

Hey, hey (Hey, hey)
Alright (alright)
Girl I'm digging on it, on you tonight
Ain't it immediate, it's open now
Wishing a woman

Hold you tight, baby I'm gonna

Love you all night long
Till the cricket starts trippin'
Girl I ain't just flirting, I'm certain
I'm working on a long term plan
Gonna be your man
Gonna put a little rock steady on your hand

Hey, hey (Hey, hey)
Alright (alright)
Girl I'm digging on it, on you tonight
Ain't it immediate, it's open now
Wishing a woman
It's the damn right
Hold you tight, baby I'm gonna

Alright (alright)
Girl I'm digging on it, on you tonight
Ain't it immediate, it's open now
Wishing a woman
It's the damn right
Hold you tight, baby I'm gonna

A Girl

Had to steal, daddy's car, park it far from her house
And throwing rocks at her window til she's sneaking out
How to get a college kid to get you good stuff
Mix a perfect drink in a Sonic cup
How to lean back, fake a yawn
Stretch your arm round her shoulder
Pull her closer til she let you lean in for a kiss
How to turn a twenty into Saturday night
How to make her momma let you have her til midnight
How not to let her know she's got you caught

These are the things that you learn
When your heart just wants to burn, burn
These are the steps that you take
When you're only thinking one thing
And you don't know nothing bout a promise and forever
All you know is nothing's better than being together
And the only thing you want in the world, is a girl

How to act like you're listening to her about her day
When she's talking and she's blocking the game
How to shut your mouth when it's that time of the month
Knowing when she's mad and when she's really just drunk
And you swear that you'll change all our ways
Just to get her to believe you and move into your man cave
How to hide a ring in your pocket for weeks
How to say them four words and make em sound so sweet
That she'd never ever say no, no no no

These are the things that you learn
When your heart just wants to burn, burn
These are the steps that you take
When you're only thinking one thing
And you don't know nothing bout living ever after
All you know you're nothing unless you get to have her
And the only thing you want in the world, is a girl

Oh, you won't believe the way she's got you acting
She'll talk you into things you never thought would happen
When the only thing you want in the world, is a girl
Mm, yeah, just a girl
Mmhmm, just a girl, just a girl

Sangria

You're crashing into me like waves on the coast
Every time we talk, you move in close
I don't want you stop, I don't want you to stop tonight
We've got the last two glasses on a straw hook bar
Trying to remember what number we are
String of white lights making your eyes shine tonight

We're buzzing like that no vacancy sign out front
Your skin is begging to be kissed by a little more than the sun
You take my hand in yours, you lean in
And your lips taste like sangria, your lips taste like sangria

Recking ball dancing down the hallway
You're holding your shoes, wearing my shades
We fall against the door, we fall into a wild warm kiss

We're buzzing like that no vacancy sign out front
Your skin is begging to be kissed by a little more than the sun
You take my hand in yours, you lean in
And your lips taste like sangria, your lips taste like sangria

Only thing I want to do tonight is drink you like a Spanish wine
Let you let this head of mine keep spinning, spinning around

We're buzzing like that no vacancy sign out front
Your skin is begging to be kissed by a little more than the sun
You take my hand in yours, you lean in
And your lips taste like sangria, your lips taste like sangria
Your lips taste like sangria, your lips taste like sangria

Only thing I want to do tonight is drink you like a Spanish wine
Let you let this head of mine keep spinning, spinning around

Buzzin'

Work, work, work, man that's all I ever do
Been hitting it, getting it, giving it, living them working man blues
Working on that pick-up, working on that check
Working on that twerking, man it still ain't working yet

Hey, can I get a little, "Hey man"
Anybody been where I've been
It just don't stop when you punch that clock
Gotta rock on right through the weekend
Gotta keep on keeping on, gotta keep that percolator perking
Got a wheel, got a way, got a hang, got a how
And right now I'm just working on a big buzz

Picking off them floaters from the ice tub
Sipping them suds and hanging with my buds
Speaking of buds, who's got a light?
Gonna probably take all night and I'll be right here
Chilling like a villain on my redwood deck
You ain't seen nothing yet
I'll be getting on my order, until further notice
I'll be b-b-b-buzzin, b-b-b-buzzin

Mm, baby girl when you get a few in you
Don't you know that you tend to get a little wild
(Get a little wild, get a little wild child, get a little wild)
When you're shooting that fireball whiskey
Get to getting all fireball frisky, you a hot little jockey
Nothing rocks me like you rocking me on a big buzz

Picking off them floaters from the ice tub
Sipping them suds and hanging with my buds
Speaking of buds, who's got a light?
Gonna probably take all night and I'll be right here
Chilling like a villain on my redwood deck
You ain't seen nothing yet
I'll be getting on my order, until further notice
I'll be b-b-b-b-buzzin, b-b-b-b-buzzin

Just South Of Heaven

I never liked the taste of whiskey til I kissed it off of her lips
Never knew just what was hitting me, getting me tipsy
But there I sit, Levi's on a dogwood branch
Yeah, she was taking me under
I might have lost my innocence
But she was saving my soul that summer

I don't know much about eternity
Or where somebody like me's gonna wind up going
All I know is that I have already been
Parked in a Chevy by the deep river rolling
And that summer night, shooting star paradise
Might be all that I'm getting
Kissing and sipping that seven-oh-seven
Somewhere just south of heaven

She might have been a falling angel
Nah, I didn't care at all
I never thought a prayer could be answered
With a whispered, sweet southern drawl
Even now when I close my eyes
I see her silhouette dance on the river
The way we spent those endless nights
That's the way I could spend forever

I don't know much about eternity
Or where somebody like me's gonna wind up going
All I know is that I have already been
Parked in a Chevy by the deep river rolling
And that summer night, shooting star paradise
Might be all that I'm getting
Kissing and sipping that seven-oh-seven
Somewhere just south of heaven

Somewhere just beyond the Jericho line
Little white church, roll back through the pines
Down where the three cross river unwinds
If there's a heaven on Earth, man that'd be mine

I don't know much about eternity
Or where somebody like me's gonna wind up going
All I know is that I have already been
Parked in a Chevy by the deep river rolling
And that summer night, shooting star paradise
Might be all that I'm getting
Kissing and sipping that seven-oh-seven
Somewhere just south of heaven

Oh yeah, just south of heaven

Somewhere just beyond the Jericho line
Little white church, roll back through the pines
Down where the three cross river unwinds
If there's a heaven on Earth, man that'd be mine

Yeah, that'd be mine
Oh, just a little bit south of heaven

I Need My Girl

I don't need another drink of Johnny Walker Red
And I don't need another drag off a Marlboro cigarette
And I don't need me telling myself everything's gonna be alright
And I don't need me lying here alone again tonight

I need my girl, I need my baby
I need you, ninety miles an hour down the interstate
Headlights shining in the driveway
In my arms, and I need you right now
I don't need nothing else, baby, in this world
I just need my girl

I don't need those buddies of mine taking me on the town
Or a TV preacher warning me bout the road I'm going down
I don't need to let I'm Sorry not roll off my lips
And I don't need to let my pride talk me out of this

I need my girl, I need my baby
I need you, ninety miles an hour down the interstate
Headlights shining in the driveway
In my arms, and I need you right now
I don't need nothing else, baby, in this world
I just need my girl

Like I never needed anything before
Like my life depends on you walking through that door
I need you, girl
Oh, I need you, girl

I need my girl, I need my baby
I need you, ninety miles an hour down the interstate
Headlights shining in the driveway
In my arms, and I need you right now
I don't need nothing else, baby, in this world
I just need my girl

I just need my girl
Just need my girl
I just need my girl

Good Country Song

Shotgun in my daddy's truck
Eight years old and acting tough
He smiled at me and said, "You shift the gears"
He would search that FM dial
And I would count down every mile
Til the station out of Tulsa came in clear
It was old Thomas Conley on the radio
It punched me in the gut, man, it rattled my soul

I'm talking bout a good country song
Makes you smile, makes you hurt
Leaves you hanging on every word
A good country song
Makes you love, makes you leave
Raise some hell or hit your knees
All I know is I think of home
Grab my guitar and strum along
Kick on back and sip me something strong
When I hear a good country song

While hip-hop, rap, and rock were cool
I was in my basement getting schooled
On George and Keith and Vernon Alabama
I was learning bout those neon lights
Wasted days and wasted nights
And honky-tonks from Texas to Montana
And when my fingers found the fret board
I close my eyes and sing
I swear that beat up guitar only played one thing

I'm talking bout a good country song
Makes you smile, makes you hurt
Leaves you hanging on every word
A good country song
Makes you love, makes you leave
Raise some hell or hit your knees
All I know is I think of home
Grab my guitar and strum along
Kick on back and sip me something strong
When I hear a good country song

Yeah, it makes me think of days long gone
Miss my dad and call my mom
Run, laugh, and pray, and drink til dawn
When I hear a good country
A good old country, a good country song

Anyone Else

Anyone else would shake my hand
Wish me luck, be proud for a friend
But a jealous guy won't share the sun
When it feels threatened by anyone
Yeah, anyone else would open the door
Helping me find what I was looking for
When you smile there's always a catch
Like I didn't earn everything I have

(Hey, hey, hey) why do you always wanna put me down
(Hey, hey, hey) when I was cheering for you from the crowd
Whatever it is, whatever I've got
You want it all for yourself
Why can't you be happy for anyone else?

Cause nobody else would make me feel dumb
For being myself or needing someone
And I can't tell, are you ever sincere?
Did they treat you like this when you showed up here?

(Hey, hey, hey) why do you always wanna put me down
(Hey, hey, hey) when I was cheering for you from the crowd
Whatever it is, whatever I've got
You want it all for yourself
Why can't you be happy for anyone else?

(Hey, hey, hey) why do you always wanna put me down
(Hey, hey, hey) when I was cheering for you from the crowd
Whatever it is, you want it all
And you want everyone to see
Why can't you be happy for me?
Why can't you be happy for me?
Why can't you be happy for me?
Why can't you be happy for me?

Just Gettin' Started

Sun just dropped off the face of the Earth
World just washed off a hard day's work
Band's about to kick off the night and the first song
(One, two, three, four)

There's a seven-forty-seven cutting cross the sky
Granny and her slippers kissing pa goodnight
Gonna lock down the hatch til the first butt crack of dawn

And we're just getting started
Drinking, picking, singing
Dropping our lines and hitting on strangers
If you're down, get up, if you're in, get out
Pop a top and fire up this party
Hey, hey, we're just getting started

We the people of the midnight hour
Silver bullet proof full of whiskey power
Getting louder and louder as the night rolls on
And getting drunk and stoned
We're the all night owls and the neon lighters
Liquored up lovers and bar room fighters
And we ain't slowing down
When the light weight crowd goes home

Cause we're just getting started
Drinking, picking, singing
Dropping our lines and hitting on strangers
If you're down, get up, if you're in, get out
Pop a top and fire up this party
Hey, hey, we're just getting started

Yeah, don't you hate it when the night runs out of time
And you still got some moon in a jug of shine
Birds are singing and bringing on daylight

And we're just getting started
Drinking, picking, singing
Dropping our lines and hitting on strangers
If you're down, get up, if you're in, get out
Pop a top and fire up this party
Hey, hey, we're just getting started

Oh, yeah, we're just getting started
