Old Boots, New Dirt Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Just Gettin' Started

I knew the minute that I picked you up
It was gonna be a wild ride
You kissed me like you couldn't get enough
Barely made it out of your drive
Burning a little rubber at the red light
Got a little warning from the blue lights
It's only going on 9 o'clock but feels more like midnight

We ain't even turned up the radio
Ain't been two miles down the road
The way you look at me baby I don't know
If we even gonna make it to the party
Yeah we gotta whole lot of moon light left
Already having the time of our lives
And we're just getting started tonight

Girl you already got the window down
And you got your seat laid back
I ain't even make it halfway to town
And you already talking about a 6 pack
Already got your shoes off
And you talking about slippin' off
No we ain't even found your friends saying
You already wanna get lost

We ain't even turned up the radio
Ain't been two miles down the road
The way you look at me baby I don't know
If we even gonna make it to the party
Yeah we gotta whole lot of moon light left
Already have the time of our lives
And we're just getting started tonight

Ain't had a drink and I'm torn up
Ain't even had a taste of your love
But girl the crazy thing is
We're just getting warmed up

We ain't even turned up the radio
Ain't been two miles down the road
The way you look at me baby I don't know
If we even gonna make it to the party
Yeah we gotta whole lot of moon light left
Already have the time of our lives
And we're just getting started tonight

And we're just getting started, tonight

Show You Off

We can go around, club hopping
Tell you all I want to do is drop in
Have a drink and catch a good band
Couple songs and hey we're gone again
Act like that's all we're doing, the truth is

I just want to show you off
Drive em all crazy, watch all the boys hate me
Is that so wrong? Come on
I just want the world to see how lucky I am
It's a fine girl, damn, be all I ever saw
I just want to show you off

Maybe take a ride down broadway
All the doctors and the Fords and the Chevrolets
Slow rolling, looking over and
Girl you've got that super cab glowing
Roll down that tinted window

There you go, I just want to show you off
Drive em all crazy, watch all the boys hate me
Is that so wrong? Come on
I just want the world to see how lucky I am
It's a fine girl, damn
Be all I ever saw, I just want to show you off

Might look like we're just cruising, truth is, truth is

I just want to show you off
Drive em all crazy, watch all the boys hate me
Is that so wrong? Come on
I just want the world to see how lucky I am
It's a fine girl, damn, be all I ever saw
I just want to show you off
I just want to show you off

Burnin' It Down

You slip your finger through the tear in my t-shirt
You stirrin' up dirty in the back of my mind
You keep on flirtin' cause you know that it's workin'
You stuck in my head girl writing the lines
Couldn't sing this song without you if I tried
Let's light it up like it's our last night

We're just hanging around
Burnin' it down
Sippin' on some cold Jack Daniel's
Jammin' to some old Alabama with you, baby
Laying right here naked in my bed
I'm just doing my thing
You love it when I sing
Say it makes you feel like an angel
We about to get a little tangled up right about now
So girl let's keep burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down

Girl when you want it, you know that I'm on it
You know that I love lovin' up on you
Let's hit the switch and let our shadows dance
And light it up like it's our last chance

We're just hanging around
Burnin' it down
Sippin' on some cold Jack Daniel's
Jammin' to some old Alabama with you, baby
Laying right here dreaming in my bed
I'm just doing my thing
You love it when I sing
Say it makes you feel like an angel
We about to get a little tangled up right about now
So girl let's keep burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down

Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down

I wanna rock it all night
Baby girl, will you rock it out with me?
I wanna crawl through the dark
Just to feel your heartbeat against me
[x2]

We're just hanging around
Burnin' it down
Sippin' on some cold Jack Daniel's
Jammin' to some old Alabama with you baby
Laying right here naked in my bed
I'm just doing my thing
You love it when I sing
Say it makes you feel like an angel
We about to get a little tangled up right about now
So girl let's keep burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down

Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down
Burnin' it down

I wanna rock it all night
Baby girl, will you rock it out with me?
I wanna crawl through the dark
Just to feel your heartbeat against me

Tryin' To Love Me

I thought you were just being a girl
The kind that just wants to change me
Likes to find all my flaws
Thought I had you figured out
I told myself she's crazy
Man, was I ever wrong
The whole time you were just trying to love me

I pushed and you pulled
Should have just fell into you
But I did what I always do, I always do
Wanted to talk but I walked away
Didn't want to hear what you had to say
Stupid me, can't believe I never knew
The whole time you were just trying to love me

Didn't think those tears were real
Thought you were just trying to play me
I just stood there and let em fall
You were just loving me after all

I pushed and you pulled
Should have just fell into you
But I did what I always do, I always do
Wanted to talk but I walked away
Didn't want to hear what you had to say
Stupid me, can't believe I never knew
The whole time you were just trying to love me

Wanted to talk but I walked away
Didn't want to hear what you had to say
Stupid me, I can't believe I never knew, I never knew
The whole time you were just trying
The whole time you were just trying
To love me
Trying to love me

Sweet Little Somethin'

Just what I had in mind
Thinking about the weekend
Standing by the Yeti with the party lights plugged in
Got a jug of feel good, going around
There's just one thing missing, baby, right about now

I need a sweet little somethin' like you got
Standing there red hot, tied up little tank top
Looking like you must be straight out of the country
Honey, what I wouldn't do for a sweet little somethin' like you

I see you dancing over there with your girlfriends
Got your fine self showing off that sun tan
You keep smiling that smile at me
Like you're reading my mind, and you know...

I need a sweet little somethin' like you got
Standing there red hot, tied up little tank top
Looking like you must be straight out of the country
Honey, what I wouldn't do for a sweet little somethin' like you

I need a sweet little somethin' like you, girl,
Sliding into my world
Yeah, I've been needing it all night
Slow kinda just right,
Honey suckle sweet little somethin'

I need a sweet little somethin' like you got
Standing there red hot, tied up little tank top
Looking like you must be straight out of the country
Honey, what I wouldn't do for a sweet little somethin'

Sweet little somethin' like you got
Standing there red hot, tied up little tank top
Looking like you must be straight out of the country
Honey, what I wouldn't do for a sweet little somethin' like you

I wanna ride you round in my old truck
Keep you out until the sun comes up
Girl, you got some serious
Sweet little somethin' like you

The way you slide that across the seat
Looking so damn good to me
Hey little girl right now
I need a sweet little somethin' like

I wanna ride you round in my old truck
Keep you out until the sun comes up
Girl, you got some serious
Sweet little somethin' like you

The way you slide that across the seat
Looking so damn good to me
Hey little girl right now
I need a sweet little somethin' like you

Laid Back

Got our headlights circled, Chevrolet
Saturday night at a river bank
Silver bullets popping, got the speakers rocking
A feel good song that'll take you back
Watching them pretty girls work that
Baby, shake it just right, I could do this all night

Out here way back, working on our laid back
Tell everyone you know
Sip it, tip it, pass it around
Let's light up this two lane town
Out here way back, working on our laid back

There's no last call or closing time
Just good stuff passing left and right
Let that homemade hit you
You know I'll be right there with you
Dancing in the dust and half past gone
Turn it up and sing along
No matter what you got playing
Wanna see your body swaying

Out here way back, working on our laid back
Tell everyone you know
Sip it, tip it, pass it around
Let's light up this two lane town
Out here way back, working on our laid back

Out here way back, you can feel that country high
Out here way back, you can do what you want to do tonight

Out here way back, working on our laid back
Tell everyone you know
Sip it, tip it, pass it around
Let's light up this two lane town
Out here way back, working on our laid back

Tonight Looks Good On You

You ain't got a dress that I don't like
You ain't got a pair of jeans that don't fit you just right
There's not a minute in the day
That you don't knock me out, you don't blow me away
But girl, now that the sun is going down
Looking at you right and now, baby

Somethin' about that southern sky sitting back behind that blur
It goes perfect with your eyes
Girl, tonight looks good on you
It's something about the way you're smiling
Making the stars go round on you
I just gotta tell you baby
Tonight looks good on you

I can taste the midnight on your lips
Makes me just wanna lean in for another kiss
Wind blowing your hair around
Girl it makes me want to let you down
You've been beautiful a million times
But I've never seen you looking like this no

Somethin' about that southern sky sitting back behind that blur
It goes perfect with your eyes
Girl, tonight looks good on you
It's something about the way you're smiling
Making the stars go round on you
I just gotta tell you baby
Tonight looks good on you

Looks so good on your skin
I don't ever, no I never, I don't ever, ever want to give up, baby

Somethin' about that southern sky sitting back behind that blur
It goes perfect with your eyes
Girl, tonight looks good on you
It's something about the way you're smiling
Making the stars go round on you
I just gotta tell you baby
Tonight looks good on you

Tonight looks good on you
I just gotta tell you baby

Too Fast

I want to be the man that you thought I was
I want to be the man that made you fall in love
I can't undo everything I've done
But let me tell you right now
Baby, you're the only one

I don't want to be a restless soul
Running on empty, burning up the road
Never knowing what I'm trying to find
While the wheels keep turning in the back of my mind
I don't wanna take a long way home
Sleeping in a roadside room alone
Head in the clouds, foot on the gas, living my life too fast

I've been making a living, not making a life
And knowing that now, well it cuts like a knife
The way it's been ain't how it's gonna be
Baby, starting right now, gonna give you the best of me

I don't want to be a restless soul
Running on empty, burning up the road
Never knowing what I'm trying to find
While the wheels keep turning in the back of my mind
I don't wanna take a long way home
Sleeping in a roadside room alone
Head in the clouds, foot on the gas, living my life too fast

Ooh, I've been a rolling stone
I think it's time for me to roll on home

I don't want to be a restless soul
Running on empty, burning up the road
Never knowing what I'm trying to find
While the wheels keep turning in the back of my mind
I don't want to take the long way home
Sleeping in a roadside room alone
Head in the clouds, foot on the gas, living my life too fast

Living my life too fast

If My Truck Could Talk

Twelve gauge, old Ford, buckshot floorboard, don't ask
Fence post, door dent, let's just leave it at that
It's got dirt on me, yeah I'd be up a tree

If my truck could talk, I'd have to yank out all the wires
Pour on the gas, set it on fire, anything to shut it up
It's been good to me but it knows too much, he'd sing it all
I'd have to find a riverbank and roll it off
If my truck could talk

Those two headlights, looked in her eyes, how she danced
Moonlit truck bed, two kids, enough said, yeah man
All that went on, goes on my own
It can go on and on and on

If my truck could talk, I'd have to yank out all the wires
Pour on the gas, set it on fire, anything to shut it up
It's been good to me but it knows too much, he'd sing it all
I'd have to find a riverbank and roll it off
If my truck could talk

If my truck could talk I couldn't deny a word it said
I'd just smile and shake my head, yeah

It's been good to me but it knows too much, he'd sing it all
I'd have to find a riverbank and roll it off
If my truck could talk, if my truck could talk
If my truck could talk

Old Boots, New Dirt

Flipped a stonefish from a waitress I ain't ever met
She asked, "Are you just passing through?"
I smiled and said, "I don't know yet"
I walked around the town square
Down the street to where
I met the preacher and the old courthouse band
Yeah, nothing helps you start again like

Old boots, new dirt, no reminders
I've got a feeling this town will get me over her
You've been through what I've been through man
Nothing feels better than old boots, new dirt

There's a thousand faces that I ain't seen before
The only history that I can see is from a civil war
It's good for me to look around
Go down roads she ain't been down
No memories of our used to be's, set me free

Old boots, new dirt, no reminders
I've got a feeling this town will get me over her
You've been through what I've been through man
Nothing feels better than old boots, new dirt

Old boots, new dirt, one step closer
Yeah, I think I'm gonna like it here, yeah

You've been through what I've been through man
Nothing feels better than
Nothing else is gonna do like old boots, new dirt
Old boots, new dirt
Ooh, old boots, new dirt

I Took It With Me

When I passed that city limit sign
I knew that I was finally on my own
So I put my foot down on the gas
To see how fast those wheels could get me going
Everything about that place made me who I am
But they say once you leave you can't go back again

So I took it with me, that cloud of red dust rolling up
That Georgia blue sky, setting sun, straight up highway forty-one
I took it with me, that wild street, that fighting size
That on the run on a Friday night
That standing tall small town crowd
I took it with me

They say this world can change you fast
Kick you right on back where you belong
I rolled my sleeves up every day
That's just what you do where I come from

Everything I ever knew I bottled up inside
What I'd leave your side at back home
It ain't hard to find

So I took it with me, that cloud of red dust rolling up
That Georgia blue sky, setting sun, straight up highway forty-one
I took it with me, that wild street, that fighting size
That on the run on a Friday night
That standing tall small town crowd
I took it with me

I'd be a thousand miles away
But it's still crystal clear
I see that picture in my mind
I keep with right here

So I took it with me, that cloud of red dust rolling up
That Georgia blue sky, setting sun, straight up highway forty-one
I took it with me, that wild street, that fighting size
That on the run on a Friday night
That standing tall small town crowd
I took it with me

Don't Change Gone

I can keep on changing the song
Keep on changing stations
Til I finally land on one
I don't mind that they keep playing
I'd take a different road through town
I find another way around
Change it up, really shake it up
Yeah, I'm trying

But it don't change gone, won't bring her back
She's moved on, and I'm stuck with that
I could change whatever I want
But it don't change gone

I can keep on hanging around
But I don't see me staying
Strike a match and burn it down
Walk out and leave it laying
Don't think about a thing just drive
Far enough til I find a change of scene
A new routine, I'd try anything

But it don't change gone, won't bring her back
She's moved on, and I'm stuck with that
I could change whatever I want
But it don't change

Headlights fading, nothing was breaking
She's gone

Yeah, I could change whatever I want
But it don't change gone
No it don't change gone

Miss That Girl

I found your silver bracelet in my backseat
That you left, it seems like yesterday
It's like I found a treasure when I held it
How could I have ever let her get away
I still got a faded picture on my rearview
It's almost like she's looking right at me
Somehow just like that, it all comes rushing back
She's right here the way it used to be

Yeah, miss that girl
Knowing they'll never be another one like her, not like her
Kicking myself for ever letting her slip out of my world
I just miss that girl

Way back then it felt like I had things together
Whenever she'd coming smiling through that door
But I've had one or two tonight
And it just makes me realize
That I ain't so together anymore

And I miss that girl
Knowing they'll never be another one like her, not like her
Kicking myself for ever letting her slip out of my world
I just miss that girl

Gonna Know We Were Here

You got the gas
I got the matches
We gonna turn this town to ashes
Cause they ain't never seen nothing like us
Ain't heard loud till we turn it up
I got the wild
You got the crazy
You know that's why I love you baby
Cause your motor runs just as fast as mine
Pedal to the metal, keep your throttle down all night
And we only get one life

Ain't scared to ride this train
Make a few marks, leave a few stains
Might slam just a little too hard
Might take it just a little too far
Might burn out like a firework,
Like a shooting star across the sky
And we may not be around in 20 years
But they're sure gonna know we were here
Yeah, they're sure gonna know we were here

People talk girl
You know damn well
When they got a good tale to tell
Let's give them something they ain't never seen
A little rated R redneck dream
Let's blaze a trail through the dirty south
Or give them something they can talk about
A little story that they won't forget
Long after we ride off into the sunset
Baby, cause we ain't dead yet, baby

Ain't scared to ride this train
Make a few marks, leave a few stains
Might slam just a little too hard
Might take it just a little too far
Might burn out like a firework,
Like a shooting star across the sky
And we may not be around in 20 years
But they're sure gonna know we were here

We only get one chance around
This runaway roller coaster train
And it ain't slowing down
So baby let go and remember our name

Ain't scared to ride this train
Make a few marks, leave a few stains
Might slam just a little too hard
Might take it just a little too far
Might burn out like a firework,
Like a shooting star across the sky
Yeah we may not be around in 20 years
And we may not be around in 20 years
But they're sure gonna know we were here
Yeah, they're sure gonna know we were here

Two Night Town

I just spent three nights in a two-night town
Suns comin' up and I'm just goin' down
Am I ever gonna turn my life around
I just spend three nights in a two-night town

It was women, it was sinnin', it was alcohol
It was everything the bible says will make a man fall
And I didn't wanna little lord I wanted it all
It was women, it was sinnin', it was alcohol

When am I, ever gonna learn to walk away
When the chips are down and the cards aint fallin' my way
Why do I always gotta stay to long till it's too late

I just spend three nights in a two night town
With a bunch of lost souls just tryna get found
Girl I've been a little crazy since you walked out
So I just spend three nights in a two-night town

When am I, ever gonna learn to walk away
When the chips are down and the cards ain't fallin' my way
Why do I always gotta stay to long till it's too late
I just spend three nights in a two-night town.

Suns comin' up and I'm just goin' down
But baby this pain is still hangin' around
I think I'll spend four nights in a two-night town
