Riser Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Bourbon In Kentucky

There ain't enough
Bourbon in Kentucky
For me to forget you
No there ain't enough
Matches I can strike
To set afire the memory of you

Up goes down
Right's gone left me behind
Wheels spin 'round
Reverse stuck in my mind

There ain't enough
Bourbon in Kentucky
For me to forget you
No there ain't enough
Bottles I could break
To make 'em feel as broken as I do

Stack up every barrel
Since the day it was made
Satisfaction guaranteed to kill the pain
But there ain't enough
Kisses from a stranger
On a long wild night to ever make it alright
If it ain't you

In my arms, in my bed
Yeah to hell with all the rest
Once you've had the best, nothing else will do
What's the use

There ain't enough
Bourbon in Kentucky
For me to forget you
No there ain't enough
Bottles I could drink
To make 'em feel as empty as I do

With my mouth wide open
In a whiskey rain
I could stand there 24 hours a day

But there ain't enough
Bourbon in Kentucky
For me to forget you
No there ain't enough
Bottles I could drink
To make 'em feel as empty as I do
No there ain't enough
Bourbon in Kentucky
For me to forget you
So forget you

Say You Do

Don't worry about the damage done
Just let those words roll off your tongue
Even if you're lyin'

If you really don't mean it, I don't care
If you need a little buzz to get you there
Then baby I'm buyin'

[Chorus:]
Well couldn't you
Say you do
Say you might
For tonight
Have a heart
Bend the truth
Even if you don't
Couldn't you

Mess me up
Get in my head
Steal my t-shirt
Wreck my bed
All night long
Like you used to
Even if you don't
Couldn't you
Say you do?

Yeah baby, I'm begging you to lead me on
Say it feels good to be back in my arms
And then don't call me

I don't mind a little smoke gettin' in my eyes
Baby, take your hands, take your lies
And lay 'em on me

[Chorus]

Well don't worry about the damage done,
Just let those words roll of your tongue
Even if you're lyin'

[Chorus]

Say you do
Just say you do

I Hold On

[Verse 1]
It's just an old beat up truck,
Some say that I should trade up
Now that I got some jangle in my pocket.
But what they don't understand
Is it's the miles that make a man.
I wouldn't trade that thing in for a rocket.
What they don't know is my dad and me-
We drove her out to Tennessee
And she's still here and now he's gone
So I hold on.

[Verse 2]
It's just an old beat up box,
Its rusty strings across the top
It probably don't look like much to you.
But these dents and scratches in the wood,
Yeah, that's what makes it sound so good.
To me it's better than brand new.
You see this here flat top guitar,
Has had my back in a million bars
Singing every country song
So I hold on.

[Chorus:]
To the things I believe in
My faith, your love, our freedom
To the things I can count on
To keep me going strong
Yeah, I hold on, I hold on.

Like the stripes to the flag,
Like a boy to his dad
I can't change who I am, right or wrong
So I hold on.

[Verse 3]
Yeah, baby, looking at you right now,
There ain't never been no doubt
Without you I'd be nothing
So if you ever worry about
Me walking out
Yeah, let me tell you something.
I hold on.
I hold on.
Can you hear me, baby?
I hold on
Yea,
I hold on...

To the things I believe in
My faith, your love, our freedom
To the things I can count on
To keep me going strong

To the things I believe in
My faith, your love, our freedom
To the things I can count on
To keep me going strong
Yeah, I hold on...
I hold on...
I hold on and on and on and on and on.
I hold on and on and on and on and on.

Pretty Girls

There ain't much to do here in this town
When the work is done and the sun goes down.
There's a place that we all go
Where it's two for one just to watch the show.
Yeah, me and the boys hangin' around
Hands in our pockets, gettin' lost in the crowd

Watchin' pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Swingin' their hips to a country song
Silver cans up in the air
They're singin' along, singing' along
Ain't nothin' like gettin' right
Chasing a buzz with a cold bud light
Watchin' pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Yeah

Yeah you oughta see them in summer time
They can't wait to show off those tan lines
Out at a cove that we all know
Where it's string bikinis and tied up boats
Out in the sun all gettin' baked
Me and the boys kickin' back in our shades

Watchin' pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Swingin' their hips to a country song
Silver cans up in the air
They're singing' along, singin' along
Ain't nothin' like gettin' right
Chasing a buzz with a cold bud light
Watchin' pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Yeah

Call me lazy, drunk, or crazy
But I ain't ever gonna move.
Nah, cause you can't beat this view.

Pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Ya got my mind thinkin'
'Bout pretty girls drinkin'

Pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Swingin' their hips to a country song
Silver cans up in the air
They're singin' along, singin' along
Ain't nothin' like gettin' right
Chasing a buzz with a cold bud light
Watchin' pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Pretty girls drinkin' tall boys

Pretty girls drinkin', pretty girls drinkin'
Pretty girls drinkin' tall boys
Got my mind thinkin'
'Bout retty girls drinkin'
Swingin' their hips to a country song

Here On Earth

Standing here on this cold ground
Tears falling down in the dirt
This world keeps spinning round and round but
You're lying still in the dirt

Don't wanna swim in this darkness
Drown in a whiskey sea
But there's no making sense of the senseless while this
Pain is killing me

There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned
Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched
The only answer I found for all this hurt
Is there ain't not answer here on earth

I ain't the best of believers
Ain't at the front of the church
I've read the words of the teacher but I
Still struggle with what it's all worth cause

There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned
Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched
The only answer I found for all this hurt
Is there ain't not answer here on earth

I wish that I could be stronger
I wanna have that kind of faith
But even if I did, I still wonder cause
Nothing would change

You're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone
Cause you're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone
Please help me believe
I'm on my knees
Help me believe

There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned
Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched
The only answer I found for all this hurt
Is there ain't not answers here on earth
Down here on earth
There's no answers here on earth

Here on earth

Drunk On A Plane

I took two weeks vacation for the honeymoon
A couple tickets all inclusive down in Cancun
I couldn't get my money back so I'm in seat 7A
I'm getting drunk on a plane

I bet the fella on the aisle thought I was crazy
Cause I taped your picture to the seatback right beside me
Now I've got empty mini bottles fillin' both our trays
I'm getting drunk on a plane

Buyin' drinks for everybody
But the pilot, it's a party
Got this 737 rocking like a G6
Stewardess is somethin' sexy
Leanin' pourin' Coke and whiskey
Told her about my condition
Got a little mile-high flight attention
It's Mardi Gras up in the clouds
I'm up so high, I may never come down
I'll try anything to drown out the pain
They all know why I'm getting drunk on a plane

We had this date marked on the calendar forever
We'd take that new wed limo airport ride together
I feel like a plastic groom alone there at the top of the cake
So hey, I'm getting drunk on a plane

Buyin' drinks for everybody
But the pilot, it's a party
Got this 737 rocking like a G6
Stewardess is somethin' sexy
Leanin' pourin' Coke and whiskey
Told her about my condition
Got a little mile-high flight attention
It's Mardi Gras up in the clouds
I'm up so high, I may never come down
I'll try anything to drown out the pain
They all know why I'm getting drunk on a plane

On my way home I'll bump this seat right up to first class
So I can drink that cheap champagne out of a real glass
And when we land I'll call her up and tell her kiss my ass
'Cause hey, I'm drunk on a plane

Buyin' drinks for everybody
But the pilot, it's a party
Got this 737 rocking like a G6
Stewardess is somethin' sexy
Leanin' pourin' Coke and whiskey
Told her about my condition
Got a little mile-high flight attention
It's Mardi Gras up in the clouds
I'm up so high, I may never come down
I'll try anything to drown out the pain
They all know why I'm getting drunk on a plane

I'm getting drunk on a plane
I might be passed out
In the baggage claim
But right now
I'm drunk on a plane

Five

Back in my day I was always
Cruisin' the road on Sunday
Makin' those tires spin your way
Yeah, it seems like yesterday
We'd go swingin' on the front porch
You were all mine and I was all yours
Yeah, those are the days I miss
A ten minute ride, I could make it in five

This might sound crazy but maybe
You're thinkin' 'bout me tonight
'Cause I'm thinkin' 'bout you tonight
Somethin' 'bout the taste of a first love, first touch
That don't ever seem to fade
Now you're 600 miles away
And a ten hour drive
But if you called me tonight,
I can make it in five

The last I heard you were on the west coast
Looking hotter than a Texas summer
Yeah girl, I can't help but wonder
What you've seen, what you've missed
What you've felt, who've you kissed
Girl, you never crossed my mind
Yeah, you stay there all the time

And this might sound crazy but maybe
You're thinkin' 'bout me tonight
'Cause I'm thinkin' 'bout you tonight
Somethin' 'bout the taste of a first love, first touch
That don't ever seem to fade
Now you're 600 miles away
And a ten hour drive
But if you called me tonight,
I can make it in five

I don't know how many nights that I've spent starin' at this phone
Lookin' for your area code or some number, yeah, that I don't know
But the one that came up tonight is the one I've known all my life
It's your mama's place and I heard your pretty voice say

This might sound crazy
But are you thinkin' 'bout me tonight?
Cause I'm thinking' 'bout you tonight, yeah
Somethin' 'bout the taste of a first love, first touch
That don't ever seem to fade
And I just need to see your face
It's a ten minute drive, this ol' truck's gonna fly

I'll be there in five
Yeah baby, sit tight
Yeah, I'll be there in five, yeah
I'll be there in five,
This ol' truck's gonna fly
I'll be there in five

Riser

Lay your pretty head down on my shoulder
You don't have to worry anymore
This old world is cold and getting colder
And I know how to lock and load the door

I'm strong enough to hold you through the winter
Mean enough to stare your demons down
The hard times put the shine into the diamond
I won't let that keep us in the ground

I'm a riser
I'm a get off of the ground, old running hider
Push and comes to shove
Hey and I'm a fighter
Darkness comes to town, I'm a lighter
But get out aliver, out of the fire
Survivor

IF you we ain't got no money I can make it
I ain't afraid of working to the bone
When I don't know what I do and I can fake it
Ya, ill pray to jesus rolls away that stone

I'm a riser
I'm a get off of the ground, old running hider
Push and comes to shove
Hey and I'm a fighter
Ya darkness comes to town, I'm a lighter
Get out aliver, of the fire, survivor

I'm a trier
I'm a get down low so I can lift you higher
An army couldn't keep down my desire
Ya

I'm a riser
I'm a get off of the ground, old running hider
Push and comes to shove
Baby I'm a fighter
Ya darkness comes to town, I'm a lighter
Get out aliver, of the fire, survivor

I'm a riser
I'm a riser
I'm a riser
I'm a riser

Sounds Of Summer

It's a tractor firin' up
Kids playin' in a field
Four wheels gettin' stuck
A line singin' out a fishin' reel
It's a cooler slidin' in the bed of a truck
A tin roof drippin' rain
Your baby sayin', come pick me up
Take me down to the riverbank

These are sounds goin' down in a nowhere town
Underneath the wide open sky
It's the dust in the air and the freedom everywhere
Can't you hear it comin' alive?
Makes you wanna drop it down a gear
And kill a couple of beers
Been waitin' all year, now it's finally here
Back around, these are the sounds of summer

It's the flick of a lighter lightin' up a little smoke
Boots climbin' barbwire, a little spot nobody goes
Lawn chairs breakin' out in the yard to the firework boom
Hearin' a heart beatin' in the dark, sayin' that she wants to

These are sounds goin' down in a nowhere town
Underneath the wide open sky
It's the dust in the air and the freedom everywhere
Can't you hear it comin' alive?
Makes you wanna drop it down a gear
And kill a couple of beers
Been waitin' all year, now it's finally here
Back around, these are the sounds of summer
Yeah the sounds of summer

'Round here that's what it's all about
So listen up and look around
It's who we are, it's what we love
So tonight let's crank 'em up

These sounds goin' down in a nowhere town
Underneath the wide open sky
It's the dust in the air and the freedom everywhere
Can't you hear it comin' alive?
It goes way too fast, it all disappears
And when it's gone, we'll still be here
Hangin' 'round, missin' the sounds of summer
Missin' the sounds of summer
The sounds of summer
Yeah, the sounds of summer

Damn These Dreams

I remember hearin' Hank on the radio
The first time it felt like fallin' in love
I bought a cassette, stole some Reds from Dad
And me and ol' Junior just burned it up
I was hooked like a fish
Every birthday wish was guitars and records
Now honey I know you miss me
I feel it when you kiss me
Trust me when I say every goodbye hurts

Well, damn these dreams
Playin' my heart just like a guitar string
Pull me away from you and everything I really need
Well, damn these dreams
Chasin' that same old whiskey melody
All up and down these Nashville streets
It's hard to look true love in the eye and leave
Well, damn these dreams

Well, I remember hearin' my song on the radio
The first time it felt like some kinda drug
Out there on the road playing show after show
Me and the boys just burnin' it up
It was all fun and games 'til the little ones came
'Cause it makes my heart bleed
When I gotta drive away and listen to 'em say
Hey daddy, why you gotta go, please don't leave

Well, damn these dreams
Playin' my heart just like a guitar string
Pullin' me away from you and everything I really need
Well, damn these dreams
Chasin' that same old whiskey melody
All up and down every small town street
It's hard to look true love in the eye and leave
Well, damn these dreams

Well, damn these dreams

Well, it's in my heart and it's in my soul
And just like you, I never can let go
These wheels just gotta roll

Cause I remember hearin' Hank on the radio
The first time it felt like fallin' in love

Back Porch

Ain't no line around the corner, no security,
No velvet rope, no dress code, everybody's VIP,
You can wear your hat, dance in your bare feet,
No credit card, no roll of cash, just BYOB

Woah oh oh, chillin' on a back porch
Little hottie swingin' up in the swings
Them good ol' boys pickin' six strings
Woah oh oh, leave your trouble at the door
No cover charge, get in for free
No last call, let's party on a back porch
(Chillin' on the back porch, oh yeah
Chillin' on the back porch, oh yeah)

Got a tin roof on the top just in case it rains
Got a kiddy pool off the deck for those hot as hell days
Got beer on ice, all day all night,
Now if that sounds like something you like come on

Woah oh oh, chillin' on a back porch
Little hottie swingin' up in the swings
Them good ol' boys pickin' six strings
Woah oh oh, leave your trouble at the door
No cover charge, get in for free
No last call, let's party on a back porch
[x3]

On a back porch
Little hottie swingin' up in the swings
Them good ol' boys pickin' six strings
No cover charge, get in for free
No last call, so let's party on a back porch
See ya on the back porch

Hurt Somebody

Well, you ain't that old but you ain't that young
You've lived a life but you ain't quite done
All eyes on you everywhere you go
It's all good till you get too close

Girl, you're gonna hurt somebody
Make somebody bleed
Girl, you're gonna hurt somebody
God, I hope it's me

There's an innocence there this time of night
Is it in your words, is it in your eyes?
And your red lipstick like a smoking gun
It could be aimed at anyone

Girl, you're gonna hurt somebody
Make somebody bleed
Girl, you're gonna hurt somebody
God, I hope it's me

There's a simple truth to the morning sun
Things don't change, they just light up
With a frontie mind and a restless heart
Girl, you can't change the way you are

Yeah, you're gonna hurt somebody
Make somebody bleed
Girl, you're gonna hurt somebody
God, I hope it's me

Yeah, you're gonna hurt somebody
Make somebody bleed
Yeah, you're gonna hurt somebody
And God, I hope it's me
