Blake Shelton Lyrics

If I'm Honest Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Straight Outta Cold Beer

Just a bunch of poor boys, daddy's girls
Children of the corn field
Tryna turn a shift job into a dollar bill
We wear them muddy boots
Stay true to how we're raised
Ain't nothin' bout us fake

You know we're straight out of that dirty south
Dirty roads, nobody got no money
Got them shined up pickup trucks
Whistlin' at them honies
From the country, yes sir
You know we're straight out of that long week work
At night, everybody wanna party
All night long, bonfire on the back 40
In the middle of nowhere, ain't nobody leavin' here
Til we're straight out of cold beer, straight out of cold beer

Just a bunch of John Deere junkies
Gettin' funky to some old Hank
Nothin' been stuck in the mud that we can't
Hook up to a rusty chain in the summer or in the rain
Yeah, it's a kind of thing

You know we're straight out of that dirty south
Dirty roads, nobody got no money
Got them shined up pickup trucks
Whistlin' at them honies
From the country, yes sir
You know we're straight out of that long week work
At night, everybody wanna party
All night long, bonfire on the back 40
In the middle of nowhere, ain't nobody leavin' here
Til we're straight out of cold beer, straight out of cold beer

You know we're straight out of that dirty south
Dirty roads, nobody got no money
Got them shined up pickup trucks
Whistlin' at them honies
From the country, yes sir
You know we're straight out of that long week work
At night, everybody wanna party
All night long, bonfire on the back 40
In the middle of nowhere, ain't nobody leavin' here
Til we're straight out of cold beer, straight out of cold beer

She's Got A Way With Words

When you put two and two together
You figure out love's got four letters
I shoulda known that when I met her
But she had to spell it out for me
After all that second guessing
It's been a long hard history lesson
Hell that's a class I got an F in
But now I understand perfectly

She put the her in hurt
She put the why in try
She put the S.O.B. in sober
She put the hang in hangover (hangover)
She put the ex in sex
She put the low in blow
She put a big F.U. in my future
Yeah she's got a way
She's got a way with words
Yeah she's got a way with words

Little words like "I" and "do"
Lying, cheating, screwed
Yeah all the words I thought I knew
They got a brand new meaning now

She put the her in hurt
She put the why in try
She put the S.O.B. in sober
She put the hang in hangover (hangover)
She put the ex in sex
She put the low in blow
She put a big F.U. in my future
Yeah she's got a way
She's got a way with words
(Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
Yeah she's got a way with words
(Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)

She put the her in hurt
She put the why in try
She put the S.O.B. in sober
She put the hang in hangover (hangover)
She put the ex in sex
She put the low in blow
She put a big F.U. in my future
Yeah she's got a way
She's got a way with words
(Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
Yeah she's got a way with words
(Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)

She's got a way with words
She's got a way with words
Yeah she's got a way with words

Bet You Still Think Of Me

Baby where are you going now?
Do you ever really know?
Oh, you hate to be tied down
But you hate to sleep alone

I bet you still think about me
Yeah I bet you still think about me

Like I think about you
Even when I don't want to
There's just something about you, baby
There's nothing that I can do
I think about you, you were always wild and free
I know we couldn't hold on forever, but baby
I bet you still think about me

Are you driving up the coast?
Are you wearing any shoes?
Did you outrun all your ghosts?
Like you were always tryin' to do...

I bet you still think about me
Yeah I bet you still think about me

Like I think about you
Even when I don't want to
There's just something about you, baby
There's nothing that I can do
I think about you, you were always wild and free
I know we couldn't hold on forever, but baby
I bet you still think about me

Like I think about you
Even when I don't want to
There's just something about you, baby
There's nothing that I can do
I think about you, you were always wild and free
I know we couldn't hold on forever, but baby
I bet you still think about me

Yeah I bet you still think about me
Yeah I bet you still think about me

Every Time I Hear That Song

There's something 'bout yesterday
How fast it all flies away
I don't know what it is about a goodbye kiss
That makes you wanna stay
We were crazy then we were over
We were breaking up, making love, a runaway roller coaster

Every time I hear that song
I'm standing in the pouring rain
On your front lawn and oh-oh-oh
I still think about you oh-oh-oh
Every time I hear that song
It's like the first time it came on and oh-oh-oh
I still think about you oh-oh-oh
I still think about you

There's something in the bittersweet
The feeling of a memory
Right there in the moment
All I ever wanted was you and me
We were crying, we were wasted
We were dying when they played it

Every time I hear that song
I'm standing in the pouring rain
On your front lawn and oh-oh-oh
I still think about you oh-oh-oh
Every time I hear that song
It's like the first time it came on and oh-oh-oh
I still think about you oh-oh-oh
I still think about you
Oh, I still think about you

There's a soundtrack in my mind
That takes me back in time
When I hear that melody
I think about you and me

Every time I hear that song
I'm standing in the pouring rain
On your front lawn and oh-oh-oh
I still think about you oh-oh-oh
Every time I hear that song
It's like the first time it came on and oh-oh-oh
I still think about you oh-oh-oh
I still think about you
Oh, I still think about you
I still think about you
Yeah, I still think about you

There's a soundtrack in my mind
That takes me back in time
When I hear that melody

Came Here To Forget

Girl you're getting over him and I'm getting over her
The eyes have it made, ain't gotta say a word
Misery loves company, that's why it's you and me
Buying each other drinks, back at the bar, as thick as thieves
Stealing these little sips
Doing our best to make the best of the worst of it

Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
Keep leaning it on in closer
Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
And with him before the night is over
That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
We better keep on keeping it lit
'Til we can't remember
Can't remember what we came here to forget

Go ahead and check your phone, like I've been checking mine
Nobody's ex texting for a rewind
Looks like it's just me and you
Fall in love just enough to get us through
What we're getting through

Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
Keep leaning it on in closer
Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
And with him before the night is over
That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
We better keep on keeping it lit
'Til we can't remember
Can't remember what we came here to forget
Ya, it's what we came here to forget

Looks like it's just me and you
Fall in love just enough to get us through
What we're getting through

Keep playing them songs, keep singing along
Keep leaning it on in closer
Keep salting the rim, getting even with her
And with him before the night is over
That first kiss was like a Colorado hit
We better keep on keeping it lit
'Til we can't remember
Can't remember what we came here to forget

What we came here to forget
What we came here to forget
Hey, hey
That's what we came here to forget

Every Goodbye

Wrong side of town on the second floor
Couple blocks down from the liquor store
I got a love seat and a couple DVD's we can watch... or not
I can call a car, it will be two minutes
'Til it's at the bar and we hop in it
It's pretty clear that we're both here to get over someone

So if you wanna come over, come on
If you need a shoulder, it's on
I know you got your past and baby I got mine

But every goodbye
Can be the start of something new
Maybe that starts with me and you
We got all night
To get to know each other better
And try moving on together, together
I could kill the pain that you've been in
You can be my heartbreak medicine
Proof that even dark clouds have a silver lining
Every goodbye
Can be the start of something new
I wanna start something with you

There's a reason that we're both here right now
And a reason everything didn't work out
We're two sets of previous relationships at the same time

Every goodbye
Can be the start of something new
Maybe that starts with me and you
We got all night
To get to know each other better
And try moving on together, together
I could kill the pain that you've been in
You can be my heartbreak medicine
Proof that even dark clouds have a silver lining
Every goodbye
Can be the start of something new
I wanna start something with you

Baby come over, come on
If you need a shoulder, it's on
I know you got your past and I got mine

But every goodbye
Can be the start of something new
Maybe that starts with me and you
We got all night
To get to know each other better
And try moving on together

Baby come over, come on
If you need a shoulder, it's on
I know you got your past and I got mine
But every goodbye

It Ain't Easy

Easy, easy, easy, easy
It ain't easy, hmm, it ain't easy
Easy, easy, easy...

Yeah I used to be alright
Just saying goodnight
Maybe see you tomorrow
Yeah I could go a couple of days
Just doing my thing
Whatever I wanted
But now, your kisses hit me like lightning
Can't fight it, girl, you put it on me
Yeah you stone me, when you ain't with me
I ain't nothing but lonely

It ain't easy anymore
When I'm walking out your door
My feet drag across the floor
And it just about kills me
I hate picking up my keys
I hate kissing you goodbye
No I ain't gonna lie
With that look in your eyes
And your arms around me
Girl, believe me
It ain't easy anymore
No, it ain't easy, that's for sure

Something different 'bout a Friday night
And the neon lights if you ain't beside me
Now I love it when you call me on the phone
Saying "hurry on home," you got something special on
And it's just for me
Damn you make it hard to leave

It ain't easy anymore
When I'm walking out your door
My feet drag across the floor
And it just about kills me
I hate picking up my keys
I hate kissing you goodbye
No I ain't gonna lie
With that look in your eyes
And your arms around me
Girl, believe me

It ain't easy leaving my baby in the bed
And driving away knowing the last thing you said
Was "don't go, don't leave, lay here with me"
Girl, you're making me crazy
It ain't easy, no, no, no, it ain't easy
It sure ain't baby, yeah baby

It ain't easy anymore
When I'm walking out your door
My feet drag across the floor
And it just about kills me
I hate picking up my keys
I hate kissing you goodbye
No I ain't gonna lie
With that look in your eyes
And your arms around me
Girl, believe me
It ain't easy anymore
No it ain't easy, walking out your door

Mmm, no it ain't easy, no, no
No, it ain't easy walking out your door
It ain't easy, oh, it ain't easy

A Guy With A Girl

Sometimes I'm the guy with the boys kicking it back
Or the guy with the guitar singing on a country track
I might be the guy with an ice cold can, stirring up dust on some old farmland
When I walk into the party with you girl, you change all that

I'm just the guy with the girl everybody wants to know
Wishin' you were there alone
Wonderin' how I ever got your little hand in mine
Lookin' over at ya like "ain't she beautiful?"
I'm invisible but I stand right there and smile
You're right beside me, oh and I see the same thing they're seein'
But I don't mind being the guy with the girl, no

It's funny watchin' 'em do the way they do
They come walkin' up to me but they only wanna talk to you
And I don't blame 'em that they're hypnotized
They keep staring at your heartbreak eyes
It's like their heart starts stoppin' when you come walkin' into the room

And I turn into the guy with the girl everybody wants to know
Wishin' you were there alone
Wonderin' how I ever got your little hand in mine
Lookin' over at ya like "ain't she beautiful?"
I'm invisible but I stand right there and smile
You're right beside me, oh and I see the same thing they're seein'
But I don't mind being the guy with the girl

The guy that don't know how he got her
But he ain't never gonna let her, never gonna let her go
Woah-oh, yeah

I'm just the guy with the girl everybody wants to know
Wishin' you were there alone
Wonderin' how I ever got your little hand in mine
Lookin' over at ya like "ain't she beautiful?"
I'm invisible but I stand right there and smile
You're right beside me, oh and I see the same thing they're seein'
But I don't mind being the guy with the girl

(Guy with the girl)
No, I don't mind being the guy with the girl
(Guy with the girl)
Yeah, I'm just the guy with the girl
I'm always the guy with the girl
I don't mind it, baby
I don't mind it, baby
I'm always the guy with the girl

Go Ahead And Break My Heart

[Blake Shelton:]
I'm certainly sitting on your last good try
Here I am again with half a goodbye
Wonder if you're really gone this time
Just when I'm about to lose my mind
There you are again on my phone
The moon is rising and you're all alone
Maybe we could just hang a while
Maybe we can make each other smile

Oh no, here I go

[Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani:]
Why don't you go ahead and break my heart?
Why are you waiting, is it way too hard?
If moving on is what you wanna do
Why don't you do it? Why don't you do it, baby?
You can't tell me that we'll still be friends
And maybe someday we can try again
If you really need a brand new start
Why don't you go ahead and break my heart?

[Gwen Stefani:]
I'd never ever meant to get so into you
Thought I was using you just to get me through
You know I'm broken, I don't trust anyone
Last thing I needed was to fall in love
You've got me dreaming, got me thinking, I've got some hope
There is nobody else I wanna get to know
But I'm so scared, I don't know what to do
How did you get me so into you?

Oh no, here I go

[Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani:]
Why don't you go ahead and break my heart?
Why are you waiting, is it way too hard?
If moving on is what you wanna do
Why don't you do it? Why don't you do it, baby?
You can't tell me that we'll still be friends
And maybe someday we can try again
If you really need a brand new start
Why don't you go ahead and break my heart?

There's your reasons
There's your cards
What are you waiting for?
The one to break my heart

Yeah, you can't tell me that we'll still be friends
And maybe someday we can try again
If you really need a brand new start
Why don't you go ahead and break my heart?
Oh, go on and break, go on and break my heart
Go on and break, go on and break my heart

Friends

There's a moment in this journey that I gave up
My boots just couldn't walk another mile
And that cloud above me had no silver lining
I couldn't buy a break with my last dime

Oh but when I saw you standing in the corner
I'd never thought that you would have my back
But then we rolled in like the thunder and the lightning
Threw some punches then we had a laugh

Just some roughed up desperados
Hanging tough through thick and thin
Kicking up dust wherever we go
I can see that you and me are gonna be friends

Who'd thought we'd wind up here together?
It's crazy that we're standing side by side
Fighting just like two birds of a feather
Who's gonna tell us now that we can't fly?

Just some roughed up desperados
Hanging tough through thick and thin
Kicking up dust wherever we go
And I can see that you and me are gonna be friends
To the end you and me are gonna be friends

Yeah, here we go

Hey, hey you and me
Different as different can be
You like to rock, I like to roll
You take the high, I'll take the low
Woah, woah-oh, woah-oh

Just some roughed up desperadoes
Hanging tough through thick and thin
Kicking up dust wherever we go
I can see that you and me are gonna be friends
To the end you and me are gonna be friends
And I can see that you and me are gonna be friends, yeah

One Night Girl

Sunrise
Slipping through the trees and it looks so pretty in your eyes
I guess I got carried away, kept you out here all night
I hope you don't mind
By the smile I see on your face,
I think you're havin' a good time, a good time

When I picked you up
Knew it wouldn't be enough
Couldn't fit it in one night
Shoulda told you then
Soon as you got in
I'd be taking my sweet time
I could show you around
All over the town
Whatever you like, girl
Ain't a way I can love you
The way that I want to
In just one night girl

I know
That I'm just now getting to be somebody that you know
Kick your seat on back cause girl we're gonna take it real slow
We already turned last night into tomorrow
And we're just getting started

When I picked you up
Knew it wouldn't be enough
Couldn't fit it in one night
Shoulda told you then
Soon as you got in
I'd be taking my sweet time
I could show you around
All over the town
Whatever you like, girl
Ain't a way I can love you
The way that I want to
In just one night girl

I'm gonna love you
I'm gonna show you
I'm gonna do you right, girl
You ain't a one kiss
Kind that I won't miss
You ain't just a one night girl

When I picked you up
Knew it wouldn't be enough
Couldn't fit it in one night
Shoulda told you then
Soon as you got in
I'd be taking my sweet time
I could show you around
All over the town
Whatever you like, girl
Ain't a way I can love you
The way that I want to
In just one night girl

You ain't a one night girl
You ain't a one night girl
You ain't a one night girl
You ain't a one night girl
No, no

Doing It To Country Songs

My alarm clock is a radio
95.5 gets me ready to go
I'm heading to my job, drinking coffee strong
And I'm doing it to country songs
Around oh, 5:30 my buddies and I
Hit the watering hole 'cause our whistles are dry
Drinking beer, shooting pool, man you can't go wrong
Doing it to country songs

I like doing it to country songs
I like doing it to country songs
Doing it to country songs
Doing it to country songs

Well I call up my baby, she says come pick me up
I take her out dancing in my pickup truck
We rub them belt buckles 'til they shine like chrome
Doing it to country songs

She likes doing it to country songs
She likes doing it to country songs
Doing it to country songs
Doing it to country songs
Yup

Oh haha, son, that's doing it right there

Yeah, we like doing it to country songs
We like doing it to country songs
Doing it to country songs
Doing it to country songs
Everybody, doing it to country songs
We like doing it to country songs
Doing it to country songs
Doing it to country songs

(Yeah, hang in there)
Doing it to country songs
(Oh, man I love doing it)
We like doing it to country songs
(To country songs)
Doing it to country songs
Doing it to country songs
(Let me show you how to do it)
(You do it to country songs, that's how you do it)
Doing it to country songs
I love doing it to country songs
(Don't you love doing it?)
Doing it to country songs
Doing it to country songs
Yeah, woo
(That was great)

Green

Lookout!
People used to call me backwards,
Living out here with the tractors,
Letting this world leave me behind.
Now-a-days I'm an innovator
I'm a country boy prognosticator
I'm a man ahead of my times

I've got a hundred acre farm
I've got a john deere in my barn
I've got a garden in my yard, full of corn, peas and beans
I've got a guitar I play unplugged
I've got a home-grown girl I love,
And when the summer time hits, we skinny dip in the stream
I was green before green was a thing

Sheets on the clothes line drying
Red Tail hawks a flying
A couple of deer on the timber line
And I know a lot more about cane pole fishing
then I ever will know about carbon emission
And my little corner of the world is doing just fine

I've got a hundred acre farm
I've got a john deere in my barn
I've got a garden in my yard, full of corn, peas and beans
I've got a guitar I play unplugged
I've got a home-grown girl I love,
And when the summer time hits, we skinny dip in the stream
I was green before green was a thing

Yeah, I've got a hundred acre farm
I've got a john deere in my barn
I've got a garden in my yard, full of root baked potatos and greens
I've got a guitar I play unplugged
I've got a home-grown girl I love,
And when the summer time hits, we skinny dip in the stream
I was green before green was a thing
I was green before green was a thing

Oh yeah.

You Can't Make This Up

People would say I'm lying
If I tried to tell 'em how we met tonight
They'd ask how many drinks I'd had
Cause ain't no way it all went down that right
You waiting on somebody and they never did show
You were pissed off, leaving, came back cause you forgot your phone

There I was, yeah I just sat down in the seat you left
You walked up, I said "what are you doing with your beautiful self?"
You rolled your eyes but you laughed and your song came on
I begged you for a dance and we danced
And it was on, eyes locked, clock stopped
One little kiss, no, we never meant to start falling in love
Oh man, you can't make this up

Then I walked you out to your car, it wouldn't start cause you left on your lights
Then you just shook your head and laughed and said "I guess I need a ride"
Then come to find out your house was just a block from mine
Yeah this is one of those movie scene cool kinda things where the stars align
Just an hour ago...

There I was, yeah I just sat down in the seat you left
You walked up, I said "what are you doing with your beautiful self?"
You rolled your eyes but you laughed and your song came on
I begged you for a dance and we danced
And it was on, eyes locked, clock stopped
One little kiss, no, we never meant to start falling in love
Oh man, you can't make this up

You can't make up a night like this
You can't make up a story like that
It's one of those
How in the world did it happen
Kind of things
I'd never believe it
If I didn't see it, girl

There I was, yeah I just sat down in the seat you left
You walked up, I said "what are you doing with your beautiful self?"
You rolled your eyes but you laughed and your song came on
I begged you for a dance and we danced
And it was on, eyes locked, clock stopped
One little kiss, no, we never meant to start falling in love
Oh man, you can't make this up

You can't make up a night like this
You can't make up a story like that
Oh no

Savior's Shadow

I'm standing in my Savior's shadow
He is watching over me
I feel the rain, I hear the thunder
As he cries for me

I'm standing in my Savior's shadow
Grace will lead to where I'm free
I take his hand, we walk together
And his light shines on me

Though the devil try to break me
My sweet Jesus won't forsake me
When I'm in my Savior's shadow
Where I'm supposed to be

I'm standing in my Savior's shadow
Following his footsteps there
Every mountain, every ocean
He hears my every prayer

Though the devil try to break me
My sweet Jesus won't forsake me
When I'm in my Savior's shadow
Where I'm supposed to be

Though the devil try to break me
My sweet Jesus won't forsake me
When I'm in my Savior's shadow
Where I'm supposed to be
When I'm in my Savior's shadow
I'm who I'm supposed to be
