Just As I Am Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

If You Want A Bad Boy

I'm sure you've heard my reputation it's all over this small town
But there's a little bit of fire under all that smoke
You know how word gets around
Back in the day you were a straight A student
Daddy's little girl, honey what are you doin'
Talkin' 'bout lettin' your hair down
We'll take a ride on the wild side of town

If you want a bad boy then baby you got it
Got a bad toy sittin' in the parkin' lot
Take you to the wrong side of the tracks
Baby you ain't gonna wanna come back
'Cause I'm a free bird and damn proud of it
You're a sweet girl, are you sure you wanna ride with me?
Gonna raise some hell, gonna make some noise
If you want a bad boy
Want a bad boy

Well I'll be out by your driveway when your mom and dad lay down
You can climb on out that window babe
And we'll get on out of town
I'll call up all my rowdy friends
We'll throw down where the dirt road ends
I'll have you back before the rooster crows
Girl your mom and daddy ain't gotta know

If you want a bad boy then baby you got it
Got a bad toy sittin' in the parkin' lot
Take you to the wrong side of the tracks
Baby you ain't gonna wanna come back
'Cause I'm a free bird and damn proud of it
You're a sweet girl, are you sure you wanna ride with me?
Gonna raise some hell, gonna make some noise
If you want a bad boy
Want a bad boy

Slide over here

If you want a bad boy then baby you got it
Got a bad toy sittin' in the parkin' lot
Take you to the wrong side of the tracks
Baby you ain't gonna wanna come back
'Cause I'm a free bird and damn proud of it
You're a sweet girl, are you sure you wanna ride with me?
Gonna raise some hell, gonna make some noise
If you want a bad boy
Bad boy

Girl you know you want a bad boy

17 Again

There ain't nothing like 'em first loves baby
Remember them high school days
Friday nights come n' dances
Givin' my old letterman's jacket away
To hold us a name

But now it's you and me talking on the phone til 4 AM
About anything and everything
Making me feel young again like ain't a damn thing changed
Ain't a damn thing changed

Makes me wanna sneak down your driveway
To climb out your window
Get in girl, we'll roll 'til the dirt road ends
You can climb up in that back seat
With your pretty little bare feet
Get the butterflies like we used to
Got our innocence
Just like we're 17 again

I thought them feelings was long gone baby
But you take me back in time
Just like spring break in Panama City
Girl from Indiana sure was pretty
But she ain't got nothin' on you tonight

Cause you're like the summer lovin' don't come or go
Never had to say goodbye
I wake up in the morning feeling like a first kiss
Every time your lips touch mine

Makes me wanna sneak down your driveway
To climb out your window
Get in girl, we'll roll 'til the dirt road ends
You can climb up in that back seat
With your pretty little bare feet
Get the butterflies like we used to
Got our innocence
Just like we're 17 again

Lookin back I wish I could put you inside every memory
(Every memory)
You can be my first love
My first kiss
My first and last everything

Makes me wanna sneak down your driveway
And climb out your window
Get in girl, we'll roll 'til the dirt road ends
You can climb up in that back seat
With your pretty little bare feet
Get your butterflies like we used to
Got our innocence
Just like we're 17 again
Yeah just like we're 17 again

17 Again
Oh

That Was Us

I got my mail today, this economy sucks
A buncha bills I can't pay, I guess they're sh*t outta luck
But there was one from an old friend, brought back memories
A black and white from way back when
Was hard to believe that was us

That was us ridin' dirt roads
Shootin' buckshot at signs
Drinkin' beer we just stole
Passin' jugs full of shine
Even them girls were one of them boys
Singin' old country gold
'Til we all lost our voice
That was us

Every once in a while we'll catch a game or a race
But catchin' up on old times turns into hell that we raised
We'll start re-tellin' stories and lies we've rehearsed
About the girls we made out with and how badass we were
That was us, that was us

That was us down in Panama cruisin' the strip
In the bed of my truck tossin' beads and talkin' sh*t
Shotgunnin' beer, playin' pong and flip cup
We never lost senior year, we tore them son b*tches up
That was us
That was us

And we'll always remember those of us that we miss
We'll always be brothers and we'll never forget

But that was us that we carried, with tears in our eyes
When the rest of us are buried, we're throwin' down in the sky
So raise a glass to the memories that won't ever die
Here's to friends, here's to family and one hell of a time
Yeah, here's to us
Here's to us
Yeah here's to us
Yeah here's to us

I'm Gone

There's no suitcase by your front door
There's no note sayin' goodbye
Ain't no motor out there runnin'
Idling in the drive
You don't have to keep on lookin'
For some proof you're losin' me
You don't have to keep on waitin'
Afraid I'm gonna leave

I'm not goin'
I'm not goin' anywhere
We both know it
Girl, I'm already there
It's been over
I don't know why you're holdin' on
I'm not goin', I'm not goin', I'm not goin'
I'm gone

What you're hearin' is an echo
What you're seein' is a ghost
I'm just dust that hasn't settled
Back down on the road
I went down long ago

I'm not goin'
I'm not goin' anywhere
We both know it
Girl, I'm already there
And it's been over
I don't know why you're holdin' on
I'm not goin', I'm not goin', I'm not goin'
Yeah all those times you didn't listen
All the words you can't take back
I'm gone
Girl, I'm gone

Hell I'm not goin'
I'm not goin' anywhere
We both know it
Girl, I'm already there
It's been over
I don't know why you're holdin' on
I'm not goin', I'm not goin', I'm not goin'
I'm gone
I'm gone

Yeah I'm not goin'
Girl, I'm gone

My Baby's Guns N' Roses

You got your hair down.
I got this top back.
Kissin' on my neck.
Girl you gotta stop that.

Do you want that fast lane?
Do you want that back seat?
Girl you gotta pick one.
You cant expect me
to keep my hands to myself.

She ain't into wine and dinin.
She's shooting whiskey singing sweet child of mine, now.
Ridin 95 sittin' shot gun pretty,
turning this town in paradise city.
Runnin' wild and solo.
Just as fast as thing goes, boy,
Give me some more.
She's my little rock star, man she knows it.
My baby's Guns N' Roses.

She's got a wild side.
That troubles in her blood.
Thinks I'm an outlaw.
That's double trouble son.

She likes to rock hard.
She likes to kiss soft.
Hot as a barrel on a 12 gauge sawed off.
Ain't hard to please, long as you got speed.

She ain't into wine and dinin'.
She's shooting whiskey singing sweet child of mine, now.
Ridin' 95 sittin' shot gun pretty.
Turnin' this town in paradise city.
Runnin' wild and solo.
Just as fast as thing goes, boy,
Give me some more.
She's my little rock star, man she knows it.
My baby's Guns N' Roses.

Ya She's dancin' with the devil,
in the cold november rain.
When she's knockin on heavens door, son,
you bet God'll call her name.

She ain't into Wine and Dinin.
She's shooting whiskey singing sweet child of mine, man.
Ridin' 95 sittin' shot gun pretty.
Turnin' this town in paradise city.
Runnin' wild and solo.
Just as fast as thing goes, boy,
Give me some more.
She's my little rock star, man she knows it.
My baby's Guns N' Roses.

Lights Of My Hometown

Oh, the lights of my hometown
They come alive when the sun goes down
You know the lights of my hometown
They come alive when the sun goes down

Yeah, I'm talking 'bout the 50-yard line on a Friday night
Mainstreet drag lined up with red tail lights
Yeah, the dashboard glow from the radio
Get the console back, pull your girl real close
Got the summer stars out in the backwoods
Got the windows down yeah, ya feel so good
To lock your high beams in on a mud hole
If you're where I'm from, then ya damn sure know

About the lights of my hometown
Yeah, they come alive when the sun goes down
Oh yeah, you know the lights of my hometown
Oh yeah, they come alive when the sun goes down

Oh yeah, we hold our lighters up if it's a good song
Little Lynyrd Skynyrd getcha singin' along
Now buy some gasoline on a pile of wood
A little too much will make it burn real good
We got the moonshine, I'm talkin' both kinds
Getcha seein' double lookin' at them tanlines
Yeah, we're throwin' down 'til the cops come
See the blue lights flash, boys it's time to run

And the lights of my hometown
Oh yeah, they come alive when the sun goes down
Oh yeah, you know the lights of my hometown
Oh yeah, they come alive when the sun goes down
When the sun goes down, sun goes down

How 'bout a flashlight on a gravestone
Let your best friend know that he ain't alone
Go on and pop a top, pour a little out
Just to let him know we're still thinkin' about him

And lights of our hometown
He almost comes alive when the sun goes down
Oh yeah, you know the lights of our hometown
Oh yeah, they come alive when the sun goes down
Oh yeah, you know the lights of my hometown
Oh yeah, they come alive when the sun goes down
Oh yeah, you know the lights of my hometown
Oh yeah, they come alive when the sun goes down

One Hell Of An Amen

Preacher said he died too young
over there totin' that gun
for Uncle Sam and our freedom
Mom and Daddy dressed in black
they folded up that flag
started prayin'
yeah he went out 21 guns blazin'

An' that's One Hell of an Amen
that's the only way to go
fightin' the good fight
til the Good Lord calls you home
and so be well my friend
til' I see you again
this is our last goodbye
but it's a Hell of an Amen

Doctor said he ain't got long
he just smiled said bring it on
if you think I'm scared
you got it all wrong
a little cancer can't break me
my heart's right and I believe
we all hit our knees
started prayin'
naw he never gave up
said the Good Lord's waitin'

An' that's One Hell of an Amen
that's the only way to go
fightin' the good fight
til the Good Lord calls you home
so be well my friend
til' I see you again
yeah this is our last goodbye
but it's a Hell of an Amen

So be well my friend
til' I see you again
this is our last goodbye
But it's a Hell of an Amen

Small Town Throwdown

Oh son

Around these parts ain't much to do
Except work like a dog 'til Friday
Punch that clock, cash that check
Raise a little hell 'til Sunday
'Bout that time

There's a party back in the woods tonight
Heard it through the redneck grapevine
Got a keg of beer and a bunch of girls,
Sure enough gonna be a good time

It's a small town throwdown
It's time to tallboy up, let them tailgates down
And man, it's on tonight, ridin' 'til the morning light
Crank that country up loud, it's a small town throwdown

Oh, we 'bout to throwdown, son

Now we got a field full of daisy dukes
Round here we know how to grow 'em
Rockin' little body and long tan legs
Sure ain't scared to show 'em, no

Show a little somethin', girl

Somebody said them city boys
Ridin' around lookin' for some trouble
If they bring it 'cross that county line
You know there's gonna be a rumble

It's a small town throwdown
It's time to tallboy up, let them tailgates down
And man, it's on tonight, ridin' 'til the morning light
Crank that country up loud, it's a small town throwdown

C'mon

It's a small town throwdown
It's time to tallboy up, let them tailgates down
And man, it's on tonight, ridin' 'til the morning light
Crank that country up loud, it's a small town throwdown

It's a small town throwdown
It's time to tallboy up, let them tailgates down
And man, it's on tonight, ridin' 'til the morning light
Crank that country up loud, it's a small town throwdown
It's a small town throwdown

That's country

Let It Ride

I guess we should've seen this comin'
I can't say it didn't cross my mind
'Cause we both said we'd take this slow yeah
And here we are dancin' cross that line
'Cause you got your lips an inch away from mine
Just to see how long they take to touch
I guess we both got a thing for playing with fire
'Cause this looks like it could get dangerous

Just one kiss I know I'll lose it
And I won't know what I'm doin'
I can't call it
Guess I'm caught up in this moment
Let it ride
Once your lips touch mine, girl, it's over
Yeah I think we both know
We can't stop
We're just rockin' with this moment
Let it ride

We're close enough to hear you whisper
Baby do you really care about me, oh yeah
Asked myself, man, should I answer
How head over heels could a man be

Just one kiss I know I'll lose it
And I won't know what I'm doin'
I can't call it
Guess I'm caught up in this moment
Let it ride
Once your lips touch mine, girl, it's over
Yeah I think we both know
We can't stop
We're just rockin' with this moment
Let it ride
Oh, let it ride

I know you're worried 'bout tomorrow
The days and the miles
That are bound to come between us
Baby we both knew this was gonna be tough
Let's make the most of every second we can borrow
And pray to God that what we got's enough
We're gonna take it day by day, mile by mile
Bridge by bridge, yeah smile by smile

Just one kiss I know I'll lose it
And I won't know what I'm doin'
I can't call it
Guess I'm caught up in this moment
Let it ride
Once your lips touch mine, girl, it's over
Yeah I think we both know
We can't stop
We're just rockin' with this moment
Let it ride
Oh, let it ride

My Faith In You

Yeah this world will turn its back
When you find yours against that wall
Just watch it as it keeps on spinnin'
Just like there's nothin' wrong
That's why I'm thumbin' through these pages
They say the answers are in red
And I believe they're in here somewhere
I just haven't found 'em yet
It's the only hope that I got left

'Cause I could stand to lose my faith in
Friends that come and go
Yeah they'll be there when you need them
They say that when you don't
I could give up on my heroes
Could let myself down too
But what would I do
If I lost my faith in You
My faith in You

You know I've learned through all these stories
All about the pain You felt
And I know You did all that for me
And I'm still askin' You for help
'Cause Lord I just can't help myself

I could stand to lose my faith in
Friends that come and go
Yeah they'll be there when you need them
They say that when you don't
I could give up on my heroes
Could let myself down too
But what would I do
If I lost my faith in You
My faith in You

Cause I've been beaten, I've been broken
I've been dangerously bruised
And Lord I never would have made it
If I'd lost my faith in You
If I'd lost my faith in You

I'd never lose my faith in You, oh
My faith in You
I'll never lose my faith in You
