Days Of Gold Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Days Of Gold

Long truck bed, hop in it, fire engine red like a lipstick
Out here we can let it go, yeah
Just me and my good friends, jug of wine lil' sip
Out here baby you just never know
Yeah, these are the days of gold

Well it's a Southern summer
Whiskey's in the air, dog's on the burner
Beer's ice cold, got a pretty little lady to hold
Southern summer
And that sun shining down like Daddy's silver dollar
Gotta hop on the old dirt road to the days of gold

The July sky, so high moon shining by the river side
Stealing hearts and running wild
In our own little world, Tennessee boys and girls running free
Out here it's good times for miles
Yeah, these are the days of gold

Well it's a Southern summer
Whiskey's in the air, dog's on the burner
Beer's ice cold, got a pretty little lady to hold
Southern summer
And that sun shining down like Daddy's silver dollar
Gotta hop on the old dirt road to the days of gold

A little bit of you, a little bit of me
What you wanna do, what's it gonna be
We can get a wild, we can live free
Or you can shake it for me baby like a tambourine
Slice the watermelon and you spit the seed
Sweat on your back's stickin' to the seat
We can sneak off to beat the heat
I'll be buzzing on you honey like a bumble bee

Yeah, it's a Southern summer
Whiskey's in the air, dog's on the burner
Beer's ice cold, got a pretty little lady to hold
Southern summer
And that sun shining down like Daddy's silver dollar
Gotta hop on the old dirt road to the days of gold

Beachin'

So just watchin' her blonde hair, sun burn, stare at them, wack caps rolling over
Laid back in a thrift store beach chair, droppin' limes in her Corona
Well she looks back, yeah, she throws me a kiss, like honey I sure want you
And it's a hundred and three between her and me and only 92 in Daytona

[Chorus:]
And it's sunshine, blue eyes, tan lines, so tight
Rollin' white sand, cold can koozie in my hand, just a summertime story
Chillin', breazin', sippin', singin' whoaoaoh

Beachin'

We got 2-for-1s, we're at a margarita bar, whatever happens happens
And there's a reggae band, full of dread head, just sittin' in the corner laughin'
Well my baby walks over, drops a 20 in a jar, she smiles and shakes it at me
Yeah, she gets 'em goin', she gets 'em playin' a little, don't worry be happy

[Chorus:]
And it's sunshine, blue eyes, tan lines, so tight
Rollin' white sand, cold can koozie in my hand, just a summertime story
Chillin', breazin', sippin', singin' whoaoaoh

Beachin'

You got a margarita here in my hand, doin' a little drinkin'

[Chorus:]
Talkin' 'bout sunshine, blue eyes, tan lines, so tight
Rollin' white sand, cold can koozie in my hand, just a summertime story
Chillin', breazin', sippin', singin' whoaoaoh, beachin'

Beachin', sunshine, blue eyes, tan lines, so tight
Rollin' white sand, cold can koozie in my hand

1972

1972
Daddy drove in over, it was sky blue
He worked at a record store after school
Call it sympathy for the vinyl

1972
Turntable in the basement, Major Cool
A hippie girl, couple cold beers split in two
You got your own rock n roll revival

Girl you know they didn't ride
So come over tonight

[Chorus:]
I'm gonna rock you like Zeppelin, roll you like the stones
Burr like them speakers in my old headphones
Gonna fly like an eagle when I drop a needle on the blues
I'm gonna get the metal piece down from the attic
With a pop and a hiss and a little bit of static
We'll return like a villain on some Dylan while we're killin some booze
We're gonna kick it like the kids did in 1972

So will it just be me and you?
Playing air drums with The Who's Keith Moon
You know them good ones always die too soon
Like Jimmy, Jim and Joplin

Yea, kickin back, cutting loose
Sippin on Jack, that's what we do
It don't matter baby girl cus in a few
You're gonna hear heaven a knockin

Look out!

[Chorus x2:]
I'm gonna rock you like Zeppelin, roll you like the stones
Burr like them speakers in my old headphones
Gonna fly like an eagle when I drop a needle on the blues
I'm gonna get the metal piece down from the attic
With a pop and a hiss and a little bit of static
We'll return like a villain on some Dylan while we're killin some booze
Well let's kick it like the kids did in 1972

Yea, we're gonna kick it like the kids did in 1972

Ghost Town

Thought it was safe to go outside
But I guess I was wrong
Thought I could take a little ride
Just to see what was going on
Girl I know it's been awhile
Awhile since you've been gone I swear
Aw but baby I still see you everywhere

Around every corner, cafe, backroad, stop sign, stoplight
streetlight glowing
Around every highway, driveway, fast song, slow song on my radio
At every party, dive bar, backseat in my car
Sounds crazy I know
But you just keep hanging around
You got me living in a ghost town
Girl I see you every road I go down
Your memory of me about to throw down, showdown, oh now
Why'd you leave me living in a ghost town
(Why'd you leave me living in a ghost town)

Across the room I see your face
Then it disappears
I hear your voice call out my name
Whispering in my ear
I reach for you but you're not here
You're still here

Around every corner, cafe, backroad, stop sign, stoplight
streetlight glowing
Around every highway, driveway, fast song, slow song on my radio
At every party, dive bar, backseat in my car
Sounds crazy I know
But you just keep hanging around
You got me living in a ghost town
Girl I see you every road I go down
Your memory of me about to throw down, showdown, oh now
Why'd you leave me living in a ghost town

I know you don't want me so why oh why oh why do you haunt me

Around every corner, cafe, backroad, stop sign, stoplight,
streetlight glowing
Around every highway, driveway, fast song, slow song on my radio
At every party, dive bar, backseat in my car
Sounds crazy I know
But you just keep hanging around
You got me living in a ghost town
Girl I see you every road I go down
Your memory of me about to throw down, showdown, oh now
Why'd you leave me living in a ghost town

Life Of The Party

Swear I was gonna tell em the truth
That was til everybody started asking 'bout you
And I didn't know what to say
Came up with some lame excuse
Why you were gone
Said you were gonna come later on
Planted a smile on my face
Like everything was okay

[Chorus:]
I was hanging around, walk in the crowd
Everybody singing along to my songs
Taking my shots, throwing them back
Acting like you ain't gone
But I don't want em to know I'm all alone
And I ain't got nobody
I don't want em to see you died inside
So I guess I'll be the life
Life of the party

And then one of your friends
Came up and gave me a hug and asked me how we've been
I smiled and said we're better than we've ever been
Well I don't know why I had to lie
Guess I didn't wanna tell er that you said goodbye
I couldn't even look er in the eye
So I kept on...

[Chorus:]
Hanging around, walk in the crowd
Everybody singing along to my songs
Taking my shots, throwing them back
Acting like you ain't gone
But I don't want em to know I'm all alone
And I ain't got nobody
I don't want em to see you died inside
So I guess I'll be the life
Life of the party

[Bridge:]
Everybody thinkin I'm feelin good
Everybody thinkin I'm havin a real good time
Don't know the truth about you and I

[Chorus:]
So I'm hanging around, walk in the crowd
Everybody singing along to my songs
Taking my shots, throwing them back
Acting like you ain't gone
But I don't want em to know I'm all alone
And I ain't got nobody
I don't want em to see you died inside
So I guess I'll be the life
Life of the party

Life of the party
Life of the party
So I guess I'll be the life
Life of the party

Swear I was gonna tell em the truth
But I didn't know what to say

Good Timing

Looks like your cup's empty
And you're all alone
I got the good stuff with me
Can you hear that song?
It just came on, girl

I can tell that you're feelin it
I see the words runnin off your lips
And you're crazy cool
Same night, same spot
Don't it look like we've got some good timing?

[Chorus:]
Just a boy and a girl underneath these stars shining
It feels like it was meant to be yea
No, I don't think it's coincidence
Running into you here like this
Sparks flying, see you smiling
Baby ain't it crazy? We got... good timing

Look up to that sky girl
It's a full moon night
You just broke up with somebody
Baby so did I
Just the other night, girl

Can you believe what time it is?
11:11, let's make a wish
We're gonna have a night we'll never forget
And it ain't over yet
Girl we got some good timing

[Chorus:]
Just a boy and a girl underneath these stars shining
It feels like it was meant to be yea
No, I don't think it's coincidence
Running into you here like this
Sparks flying, see you smiling
Baby ain't it crazy? We got... good timing

It used to be the only luck I had was a day late dollar short, always bad
And then I saw your face and it all changed up
Baby just like that
It's alright
Right on the money, on the spot
Girl we got some good timing

[Chorus:]
Just a boy and a girl underneath these stars shining
It feels like it was meant to be yea
No, I don't think it's coincidence
Running into you here like this
Sparks flying, see you smiling
Baby ain't it crazy? We got... good timing

Good timing
Good timing

Tall Glass Of Something

It's 100 degrees now we're makin
And that's making me wanna drink

Got a truck full of peaches
Single beaches round here but we gotta stay in rank

There's a bar in the back, yea that's where we're hanging
It's a kiddy pool and a hose, kinda think we need ice

Solos, toyos
Lift em up

[Chorus:]
I need a tall glass of something nice and strong
A little liquor and a loving to do all night long
I need a kick in the chest, a shot to the mix
A little hot, make this martini shake your hips
I said tequila, margarita, seniorita please
Chase it down with a Corona and some sex on the beach
A yellow umbrella foamy style, a kiss on my cheek
Just you and me, that's all I need
Oh and a tall glass of something

(sippin and juggin, sippin and juggin juggin)
(sippin and juggin, sippin and juggin juggin juggin)

I'll tell you one thing about me
I get thirsty about 5:30
In the sunshine or the rain
So choo choo baby, come on hop on the train

Lift em up

[Chorus x2:]
I need a tall glass of something nice and strong
A little liquor and a loving to do all night long
I need a kick in the chest, a shot to the mix
A little hot, make this martini shake your hips
I said tequila, margarita, seniorita please
Chase it down with a Corona and some sex on the beach
A yellow umbrella foamy style, a kiss on my cheek
Just you and me, that's all I need
Oh and a tall glass of something

(sippin and juggin, sippin and juggin juggin)
(sippin and juggin, sippin and juggin juggin juggin)

One Little Kiss (Never Killed Nobody)

I saw your number on my phone,
I said yeah I'm here alone.
I saw the lights, opened the door before you rang my bell
Hey how ya been? And you leaned in and I just told myself

One little kiss never killed nobody,
One little drink never wrecked no party.
Thought we were over baby, but you kept getting closer baby.
One little touch never broke no heart girl,
But I always wanna finish what you start girl.
Now your gone and it's hitting me,
Like a bullet and it's hard to breath,
One little kiss never killed nobody, but me.

Aint goin out, aint getting drunk
Don't need a shot to get messed up
I'm thumbing through pictures of you from last night
Thought I'd be fine to see you one last time, yea right

One little kiss never killed nobody,
One little drink never wrecked no party.
Thought we were over baby, but you kept getting closer baby.
One little touch never broke no heart girl,
But I always wanna finish what you start girl.
Now your gone and it's hitting me,
Like a bullet and it's hard to breath,
One little kiss never killed nobody, but me.

Right here, they said I never would have listened when you whispered in my
Ear, last night when you said "Baby it's alright"

One little kiss never killed nobody,
One little kiss never killed nobody,
One little drink never wrecked no party.
Thought we were over baby, but you kept getting closer baby.
One little touch never broke no heart girl,
But I always wanna finish what you start girl.
Now your gone and it's hitting me,
Like a bullet and it's hard to breath,
One little kiss never killed nobody, but me.
Nobody but me [x4]

What We Ain't Got

We all want what we ain't got,
Our favorite doors are always locked.
On a higher hill with a taller top,
We all want what we ain't got.

We ain't happy where we are,
There's greener grass in the neighbors yard.
A bigger house and a faster car,
We ain't happy where we are.

All I want is what I had,
I'll trade it all just to get her back.
She's moving on, But I guess I'm not..
We all want what we ain't got..

We all wish it didn't hurt,
When you try your best but it doesn't work.
And goodbye's such a painful word,
We all wish it didn't hurt.

All I want is what I had,
See I'd trade it all just to get her back.
She's moving on, But I guess I'm not.
We all want what we ain't got.

We all want what we ain't got,
We all want what we ain't got.
You see I wanted the world until my whole world stopped,
A love like that ain't easily forgot.
We all want what we ain't got.

Tipsy

You got your hands all over me
You sure making this room spin
Moving your body to the beat
Sure got me feeling like I'm losing it
Oh but girl keep doing it

Jack in my coke's got me dizzy dizzy
Radio rockin with maybe Freddy daddy
Oh oh it's the Saturday night
She shake it so sweet you got me on a sugar high
And I don't know if it's you or the whiskey
That's got me feeling all tipsy tipsy
I can feel myself about to fall
Every time you kiss me, kiss me
I better lean you up against the wall
Oh I'm tipsy, tipsy

The way you rock that miniskirt
Yea, you turn me right side down
Girl you're making my vision blurry
It ain't what I'm sippin got me trippin
Now, girl you're looking so fine tonight
I couldn't walk a straight line tonight cus

Jack in my coke's got me dizzy dizzy
Radio rockin with maybe Freddy daddy
Oh oh it's the Saturday night
She shake it so sweet you got me on a sugar high
And I don't know if it's you or the whiskey
That's got me feeling all tipsy tipsy
I can feel myself about to fall
Every time you kiss me, kiss me
I better lean you up against the wall
Oh I'm tipsy, tipsy

Yea, the room's going round and round
I was thinking we should just lay down

Jack in my coke's got me dizzy dizzy
Radio rockin with maybe Freddy daddy
Oh oh it's the Saturday night
She shake it so sweet you got me on a sugar high
And I don't know if it's you or the whiskey
That's got me feeling all tipsy tipsy
I can feel myself about to fall
Every time you kiss me, kiss me
I better lean you up against the wall
Oh I'm tipsy, tipsy

Drivin' All Night

There was nothing as pretty in Panama City as you
That's what I took away from that spring break that year
And there wasn't no shortcut down the hill with you
But it wasn't like it was hard talking me into

Drivin all night, drivin all night
Drivin like I'm bad out here
Cheap motel's calling my name
No way I'm stopping this Chevy
RedBull's takin my left foot heavy
1 1 32 2 33
Still here round town, put it back in
Good dog working hard, get a man blue, that's a way
Drivin all night, drivin all night, drivin all night
Just to hold you for a day

You're [?] what a kiss that I still get drunk on
You're a text, you're a call that falls out of the blue
You're a snapshot in my head and on my phone
And you ain't gotta ask twice, I'm already gone
Girl, I'm gone

Drivin all night, drivin all night
Drivin like I'm bad out here
Cheap motel's calling my name
No way I'm stopping this Chevy
RedBull's takin my left foot heavy
1 1 32 2 33
Still here round town, put it back in
Good dog working hard, get a man blue, that's a way
Drivin all night, drivin all night, drivin all night
Just to hold you for a day

Girl you ain't never too out of the way
All you gotta do is say the word and I'll get to you
I'll keep walking the road and ride on through

1 1 32 2 33
[?] put it back in
Good dog working hard, get a man blue, that's a way
Drivin all night, drivin all night, drivin all night
Just to hold you for a day

You keep me drivin all night

There was nothing as pretty in Panama City as you

Sure Feels Right

I've always had a thing for girls that dance
When they get a little tipsy
Corona cold in your hand, your brushed back hair
I took another sip of whiskey
And I didn't let the ice cubes melt in the bottom of my plastic cup

And I said hey pretty girl you wanna get out of here?
And you looked up
Looking in your big blue eyes
Laying there that night

I said this sure feels dangerous to me
It feels like a struck match kissing gasoline
It feels a little better than it ever has
It sure feels good, baby let's be bad
I feel your heart, I feel you there
I feel a little brave, I feel a little scared tonight
But it sure feels right

Well then the sunrise hit the window
And there you were
In my Alabama t-shirt
I fly where angels sleep like a dream
You got me thinking 'bout those 3 words
And I didn't sneak off like I done so many times before

And you opened up your eyes and gave me a kiss
I said give me one more
And in those twisted covers
We'll be more than lovers

And you said this sure feels dangerous to me
It feels like a struck match kissing gasoline
It feels a little better than it ever has
It sure feels good, baby let's be bad
I feel your heart, I feel you there
I feel a little brave, I feel a little scared in the morning light
And it sure feels right

It sure feels right

It sure feels dangerous to me
It feels like a struck match kissing gasoline
It feels a little better than it ever has
It sure feels good, baby let's be bad
I feel your heart, I feel you there
I feel a little brave, I feel a little scared tonight
And it sure feels right

And it sure feels right
And it sure feels right
And it sure feels right

Live big wide when we go out tonight
And relive that time
Corona cold in your hand, your brushed back hair
I'll sip on my whiskey
You know I always had a thing for girls that dance
When they get a little tipsy

After The Music's Stopped

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Well I wish you were here so you could be my baby, rescue me from this heartbreak hotel.
Yeah I heard it through the grapevine you were comfortably numb on that highway to hell.
Now I'm sittin' here on the dock of the bay watching you and that hound dog sail away.

So bye bye miss American Pie, tangled up and blue singing yesterday.
Oh and I still haven't found what I was looking for and you're dancing in the streets.
And god only knows I'm carrying the weight while my guitar gently weeps.
And you can follow the tracks of my tears to this old, lonely broke jukebox.
Sittin' here in the sounds of silence after the music stopped.

Set 'em up Joe don't you know tonight I'm drinking fire and rain.
Well she was born to run down thunder road and now I'm dazed and confused in an old purple haze.
Yeah I'd walk the line through the ring of fire if you'd take one more look into these eyes.

So bye bye miss American Pie, tangled up and blue singing whiskey lullaby.
Oh and I still haven't found what I was looking for and you're dancing in the streets.
And god only knows I'm carrying the weight while my guitar gently weeps.
And you can follow the tracks of my tears to this old, lonely broke jukebox.
Sitting here in the sounds of silence after the music stopped.

Well watch me now as I fall to pieces I guess you can't always get what you want
And what a friend I have in Jesus 'cuz there ain't no sunshine when she's gone.

Oh and I still haven't found what I was looking for and you're dancing in the streets.
And god only knows I'm carrying the weight while my guitar gently weeps.
And you can follow the tracks of my tears to this old, lonely broke jukebox.
Sittin' here in the sounds of silence after the music stopped.

Yeah I'll be sitting here in the sounds of silence after the music stopped.
