Track Name: The Man
AMY WAS MY GIRL SHE MEANT THE WORLD TO ME
BUT SHE LEFT ME ONE STORMY NIGHT UNEXPECTEDLY
NOW MY AMY’S IN THE ARMS OF ANOTHER MAN
I CURSED HIS NAME IT TOOK SOME TIME FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND


BUT I FORGAVE HIM AND HELD ONTO MY FAITH
CAUSE I KNOW MY AMY’S IN A BETTER PLACE
STANDING NEXT TO THE MAN JESUS IS HIS NAME


IT WAS ON A SUNDAY IN THE FALL OF 05
I HELD ONTO MY AMY'S HAND JUST BEFORE SHE DIED
ON THAT ROAD SIDE SHE CRIED OUT HIS NAME
AND I SCREAMED OUT AT HIM IN VAIN AS HE CARRIED HER AWAY


BUT I FORGAVE HIM AND HELD ONTO MY FAITH
CAUSE I KNOW MY AMY’S IN A BETTER PLACE
STANDING NEXT TO THE MAN JESUS IS HIS NAME

EVERY TIME I GO BACK TO THAT ROADSIDE
AND STAND BY HER CROSS
I MEET THE MAN HOLDING AMY’S HAND
HE FINDS ME WHEN I’M LOST
AND I KNEEL DOWN AND WE TALK

AND HE FORGIVES ME HE GIVES ME HOPE AND GRACE
I KNOW I’LL SEE MY AMY IN A BETTER PLACE
STANDIN’ NEXT TO THE MAN JESUS IS HIS NAME
WE’LL STAND NEXT TO THE MAN TOGETHER SOME DAY
AND JESUS IS HIS NAME
Track Name: Gettin' Harder Everyday
IT WAS JUST A SUMMER THING
WASN’T SUPOSE TO MEAN A THING
YA JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT COMES ALONG EVERY NOW AND THEN
JUST ANOTHER LOVE AFFAIR
WASN’T MENT TO GO ANYWHERE
CAUSE I WAS PREPARED AT ANYTIME TO WALK AWAY
YA I COULD’VE BUT I DIDN’T AND I’LL ADMIT
IT’S GETTIN’ HARDER EVERYDAY

NOW HERE IT IS WINTERS COMIN’ ON
SHE’S TALKIN’ BOUT MOVIN’ IN AND I AIN’T MOVIN’ ON
HER MAMA CALLED SAYIN’ SHE CAN’T WAIT TO MEET ME
NEXT THING I KNOW THEY’RE TALKIN’ BOUT WEDDING BELLS AND BABIES
AND I WAS THINKIN’ THIS WOULD SURE BE A GOOD TIME TO GET AWAY
BUT IT’S GETTIN’ HARDER EVERYDAY

SHOULD’VE KNOWN SOMETHIN’ UP
FIRST TIME SHE MENTIONED LOVE
AND I DIDN’T JUST GET UP AND SAY IT’S SURE BEEN NICE BUT GOTTA GO
INSTEAD I SAID IT BACK
FIGURIN’ LATER I COULD TAKE IT BACK
CAUSE IN THE BACK OF MY MIND IT JUST FELT LIKE THE RIGHT THING TO SAY
AND I’M STILL TRYIN’ TO CONVINCE MYSELF I DIDN’T MEAN IT WHEN I SAID IT
BUT IT’S GETTIN’ HARDER EVERYDAY

NOW HERE IT IS WINTERS COMIN’ ON
SHE’S TALKIN’ BOUT MOVIN’ IN AND I AIN’T MOVIN’ ON
HER MAMA CALLED SAYIN’ SHE CAN’T WAIT TO MEET ME
NEXT THING I KNOW THEY’RE TALKIN’ BOUT WEDDING BELLS AND BABIES
AND I WAS THINKIN’ THIS WOULD SURE BE A GOOD TIME TO GET AWAY
BUT IT’S GETTIN’ HARDER EVERYDAY

EVERY TIME I LOOK AT HER
OH I CAN’T IMAGINE
BEIN’ WITHOUT HER I SWARE
I DON’T KNOW HOW IT HAPPENED

NOW HERE IT IS WINTERS COMIN’ ON
SHE’S TALKIN’ BOUT MOVIN’ IN AND HELL I STILL AIN’T GONE
EVERY KISS JUST GETS A LITTLE SWEETER
AND I CAN’T IMAGINE WHY I’D BE THINKIN’ I COULD EVER LEAVE HER
BUT I’M STILL LOOKIN’ FOR A REASON NOT TO STAY
BUT I CAN’T SEEM TO FIND A GOOD TIME TO WALK AWAY
AND IT’S GETTIN’ HARDER EVERYDAY
IT’S GETTIN’ HARDER EVERYDAY

IT WAS JUST A SUMMER THING
WASN’T SUPOSE TO MEAN A THING
Track Name: Southern Man

I CAN SKIN A BUCK WITH MY EYES CLOSED CATCH CATFISH FROM THE CREEK
AND I WORK THE LAND WITH THESE CALASED HANDS
I’M A SOUTHERN MAN

AND I’M A BIG COUNTRY FAN I TWO STEP IT WITH THE BAND

WELL I’M A BLUE COLORED RED NECK SON-OF-A-GUN
BORN TO RAISE A LOT OF CAIN
I GOT BACKWOODS PRIDE AND HILLBILLY BLOOD
RUNNIN’ THROUGH MY VEINS
IF YOU DON’T LIKE ME WELL THAT’S ALRIGHT
CAUSE I DON’T GIVE A DAM
THAT’S WHO I AM - A SOUTHERN MAN

GOT THE WIFE THE KIDS AND THE FARM AND THAT'S ALL I’LL EVER NEED
WELL I THANK THE LORD EVERY NIGHT FOR THIS SIMPLE LIFE I LEAD
AND MY ONLY PLAN IS DO THE BEST I CAN
I’M A SOUTHERN MAN

WELL I’M A BLUE COLORED RED NECK SON-OF-A-GUN
BORN TO RAISE A LOT OF CAIN
I GOT BACKWOODS PRIDE AND HILLBILLY BLOOD
RUNNIN’ THROUGH MY VEINS
IF YOU DON’T LIKE ME WELL THAT’S ALRIGHT
CAUSE I DON’T GIVE A DAM
THAT’S WHO I AM - A SOUTHERN MAN

YA I’M A BLUE COLORED RED NECK SON-OF-A-GUN
BORN TO RAISE A LOT OF CAIN
I GOT BACKWOODS PRIDE AND HILLBILLY BLOOD
RUNNIN’ THROUGH MY VEINS
IF YOU DON’T LIKE ME WELL THAT’S ALRIGHT
CAUSE I DON’T GIVE A DAM
THAT’S WHO I AM - OH I'M A SOUTHERN MAN

IF YOU DON’T LIKE ME THAT’S ALRIGHT CAUSE I DON’T GIVE A DAM

Track Name: Goodbye On Her Mind
OH HOW I LOVE HER AND I NEED HER
I’D DO ANYTHING FOR HER
BUT SHE DON’T FEEL IT IN HER HEART LIKE I DO
OH SHE NEVER HAD TO TELL ME
I CAN SEE IT IN HER EYES
SHE’S GOT GOODBYE OH GOODBYE ON HER MIND

ANY DAY NOW SHE’LL BE LEAVIN’
AND MY WORLD WILL COME CRASHING DOWN
IT’S JUST A MATTER OF TIME
SHE WONT BE AROUND
LATELY SHE’S BEEN SHOWIN’
ALL OF THE SIGNS
SHE’S GOT GOODBYE OH GOODBYE ON HER MIND

IT’S GONNA BE HARD LETTING GO
OF THE ONE THING I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT
OH THIS WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME
THERE’S NO DOUBT

ANY DAY NOW SHE’LL BE LEAVIN’
AND MY WORLD WILL COME CRASHING DOWN
IT’S JUST A MATTER OF TIME
SHE WONT BE AROUND
LATELY SHE’S BEEN SHOWIN’
ALL OF THE SIGNS
SHE’S GOT GOODBYE OH GOODBYE ON HER MIND
SHE’S GOT GOODBYE OH GOODBYE ON HER MIND
Track Name: If I'd Done It Your Way
IF I’D DONE IT YOUR WAY
I WOULD HAVE LISTENED A LITTLE MORE
HEARD YOU CRYIN’ BEHIND THAT DOOR
I WOULD HAVE NOTICED YOU WERE IN PAIN
IF I’D DONE IT YOUR WAY
I WOULD HAVE SHOWED MORE AFFECTION
I WOULD HAVE PAID MORE ATTENTION
YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER WALKED AWAY

BUT I DID IT MY WAY I BROKE YOUR HEART
I LET YOU DOWN RIGHT FROM THE START
SHOULDA LISTENED TO YOU
AND HELD ON TO EVERY WORD YOU HAD TO SAY
BUT I DID IT MY WAY LIKE A STUBORN FOOL
ALWAYS RUNNING FROM THE TRUTH
BUT I KNOW NOW WE’D BE OK

IF I’D DONE IT YOUR WAY
I WOULD HAVE NEVER LEFT YOU LONELY
AND YOU’D STILL BE IN LOVE WITH ME
YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER LET GO
OH IF I’D DONE IT YOUR WAY
I WOULD HAVE SWALLOWED ALL MY PRIDE
I WOULD HAVE GAVE YOU ALL MY TIME
WHEN YOU NEEDED SOMEONE TO HOLD

BUT I DID IT MY WAY I BROKE YOUR HEART
I LET YOU DOWN RIGHT FROM THE START
SHOULDA LISTENED TO YOU
AND HELD ON TO EVERY WORD YOU HAD TO SAY
BUT I DID IT MY WAY LIKE A STUBORN FOOL
ALWAYS RUNNING FROM THE TRUTH
BUT I KNOW NOW WE’D BE OK
IF I’D DONE IT YOUR WAY

LOVE WOULD STILL BE STRONG
NO IT WOULDN’T HAVE ALL GONE WRONG
IF I’D DONE IT YOUR WAY

I DID IT MY WAY LIKE A STUBURN FOOL
ALWAYS RUNNING FROM THE TRUTH
BUT I KNOW NOW WE’D BE OK
IF I’D DONE IT YOUR WAY

YEAH WE’D BE OK EVEN TODAY
IF I’D DONE IT YOUR WAY OH YOUR WAY
Track Name: I've Never Seen An Angel Fly
IT’S FUNNY HOW THE WISKEY
GETS YOU THINKIN’ YOU DON’T GIVE A DAM
YOU WIND UP SAYIN’ THINGS AND LATER ON YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND
WHY YOU SAID EM BUT YOU GO RIGHT AHEAD AND LET IT OUT
AND TONIGHT WHEN SHE ASKED ARE YOU EVER GONNA CHANGE
WELL I SHOULDA SHUT MY MOUTH

I’VE NEVER SEEN AN ANGEL FLY
BUT LORD I’VE MADE ONE CRY AND I’VE
NEVER HEARD THE DEVIL SPEAK
TIL I HEARD HIM SAY TO ME
IF SHE WANTS TO GO TELL HER SHE CAN LEAVE
THAT YOU NEVER LOVED HER AND THERE’S NO NEED
TO COME BACK AND I SAID OK
I’VE NEVER SEEN AN ANGEL FLY
BUT I JUST WATCHED ONE WALK AWAY

I NEVER STAYED OUT TO LATE
I JUST STAYED OUT WAY TO OFTEN
AND WHEN I’D COME HOME I’D HANG MY HEAD WHILE SHE DID ALL THE TALKIN’
THEN I’D ASK FORGIVNESS OH BUT TONIGHT I SAID TO MUCH
I DIDN’T JUST BREAK HER HEART IN TWO
HELL I BLEW IT UP

RE-CHORUS

I ALWAYS FIGURED SHE WAS HEAVEN SENT
RIGHT FROM THE MAN UPSTAIRS
NOW THAT I’VE HURT HER AND I NEED HIS HELP
I’M NOT SURE I’VE GOT A PRAYER

CAUSE I TOLD HER TO GO IF SHE WANTED TO LEAVE
THAT I DIDN’T LOVE HER AND THERE’S NO NEED
TO COME BACK AND SHE SAID OK
I’VE NEVER SEEN AN ANGEL FLY
NO I’VE NEVER SEEN AN ANGEL FLY
I’VE NEVER SEEN AN ANGEL FLY
BUT I JUST WATCHED ONE WALK AWAY
Track Name: Circlin' The Drain
CRACKED MY GOOD FRONT TOOTH, TOO POOR FOR A CROWN
GOT MY TRUCK REPO-ED, MY DOG’S IN THE POUND
IRS SAYS I OWE, MY EX WIFE TOOK EVERYTHING
I AIN’T GONE UNDER YET, BUT I’M CIRCLIN’ THE DRAIN

CIRCLIN’ THE DRAIN, ROUND AND ROUND I GO
I CAN FEEL THE VORTEX, A TUGGIN’ AT MY SOUL
MONEY DON’T GROW ON MY TREES
SO THE BILLS ARE GONNA HAVE TO WAIT
HANGIN’ ON A CHAIN, JUST CIRCLIN’ THE DRAIN

BOSS MAN SAID I’M SORRY BUT I HAVE TO LET YOU GO
THINGS AROUND HERE LATELY HAVE BEEN REALLY SLOW
I CAN’T SEEM TO GET AHEAD STANDIN’ IN THE RAIN
AIN’T GONE UNDER YET, BUT I’M CIRCLIN’ THE DRAIN

CIRCLIN’ THE DRAIN, ROUND AND ROUND I GO
I CAN FEEL THE VORTEX, A TUGGIN’ AT MY SOUL
MONEY DON’T GROW ON MY TREES
SO THE BILLS ARE GONNA HAVE TO WAIT
HANGIN’ ON A CHAIN, JUST CIRCLIN’ THE DRAIN

WELL I’LL GET THROUGH IT HOLDIN’ ON TO FAITH
AND WITH A LITTLE HOPE AND A LOT OF LUCK
I WON’T END UP DOWN THE DRAIN

CIRCLIN’ THE DRAIN, ROUND AND ROUND I GO
I CAN FEEL THE VORTEX, A TUGGIN’ AT MY SOUL
MONEY DON’T GROW ON MY TREES
SO THE BILLS ARE GONNA HAVE TO WAIT
HANGIN’ ON A CHAIN, JUST CIRCLIN’ THE DRAIN

MONEY DON’T GROW ON MY TREES
SO THE BILLS ARE GONNA HAVE TO WAIT
HANGIN’ ON A CHAIN, JUST CIRCLIN’ THE DRAIN
I AIN’T GONE UNDER YET, BUT I’M CIRCLIN’ THE DRAIN
Track Name: My Man Song
TOO MUCH HORSEPOWER TOO MUCH TRUCK
TOO MUCH WHISKEY THEY CAN’T MAKE ENOUGH
TOO MUCH BARBEQUE TOO MUCH BEER
TOO MANY ANTLERS ON MY DEER
THIS IS MY MAN SONG
THIS IS MY MAN SONG

TOO MUCH FISHIN TOO MUCH BOAT
TOO MUCH GUN TOO MUCH BOW
TOO MUCH ALL NIGHT AT THE BAR
TOO MUCH WATCHIN’ THAT NASCAR
THIS IS MY MAN SONG
THIS IS MY MAN SONG

I DON’T WANNA HEAR ABOUT HOW MUCH HE’S LOVE HER
AND HOW HE JUST CAN’T WAIT TO MEET HER MOTHER
I’M TIRED OF ALL THIS LOVERS LAMENT
I WANNA HEAR SOME HELL BOUND AND WHISKEY BENT
ALL NIGHT LONG
THIS IS MY MAN SONG

CUTE LITTLE BARBIE DOLL WEARIN’ SPANDEX
SINGIN SWEET NOTHINS AND SONGS ABOUT SEX
SOME SPIKED HAIRED SISSY WITH A ROCK N’ ROLL VOICE
HE’D STILL BE SINGIN’ POP IF HE HAD HIS CHOICE
THIS IS MY MAN SONG
THIS IS MY MAN SONG

I DON’T WANNA HEAR ABOUT HOW MUCH HE’S LOVE HER
AND HOW HE JUST CAN’T WAIT TO MEET HER MOTHER
I’M TIRED OF ALL THIS LOVERS LAMENT
I WANNA HEAR SOME HELL BOUND AND WHISKEY BENT
ALL NIGHT LONG
THIS IS MY MAN SONG

I DON’T WANNA HEAR ABOUT HOW MUCH HE’S LOVE HER
AND HOW HE JUST CAN’T WAIT TO MEET HER MOTHER
I’M TIRED OF ALL THIS LOVERS LAMENT
I WANNA HEAR SOME HELL BOUND AND WHISKEY BENT
ALL NIGHT LONG

THIS IS MY MAN SONG - THIS IS MY MAN SONG
Track Name: When You Got A Broken Heart
YOU FEEL RUN DOWN
CAUSE YOU DON’T SLEEP
OH YOU NEVER GO OUT
AND YOU CAN’T EAT
YOU DON’T ACCEPT CALLS
YOU’RE NOT MUCH UP FOR TALKIN’
YOU JUST HANG AROUND
DOIN’ A LOT OF NOTHIN’
YOU CAN’T HELP FALLIN’ APART
WHEN YOU GOT A BROKEN HEART

NO MATTER HOW YOU TRY
IT’S HARD TO GO ON LIVIN’
YOU TRY TO FIND STRENGTH
AND THE WILL TO CARRY ON
YOU FEEL LIKE GIVIN’ UP
ON EVERYTHING AROUND YOU - IT’S SO TRUE
YOU CAN’T HELP FALLIN’ APART
WHEN YOU GOT A BROKEN HEART

YOU DON’T ANSWER THE DOOR
YOU KEEP THE SHADES PULLED DOWN
ALL THE LIGHTS TURNED OFF
LET’EM THINK YOUR OUTTA TOWN
YOU WANNA BE BY YOURSELF
CAUSE YOU FEEL LIKE CRYIN’
JUST HANGIN’ AROUND
DOIN’ A LOT OF NOTHIN’
YOU CAN’T HELP FALLIN’ APART
WHEN YOU GOT A BROKEN HEART

NO MATTER HOW YOU TRY
IT’S HARD TO GO ON LIVIN’
YOU TRY TO FIND STRENGTH
AND THE WILL TO CARRY ON
YOU FEEL LIKE GIVIN’ UP
ON EVERYTHING AROUND YOU IT’S SO TRUE
YOU CAN’T HELP FALLIN’ APART
WHEN YOU GOT A BROKEN HEART
Track Name: Good Memory
AS I LYE HERE
I HEAR YOU BREATHIN’
AND FEEL YOUR BODY CLOSE TO MINE
I CLOSE MY EYES
MY HEART STARTS BEATIN’
AS I FALL ASLEEP AND DRIFT AWAY BACK IN TIME

EVERY NIGHT I GET LOST IN A DREAM
WHERE LIFE IS PERFECT AND YOU’RE STILL HERE WITH ME
BUT IT ALWAYS BRINGS ME DOWN
WAKING UP TO REALITY
THAT’S THE BAD THING
ABOUT A GOOD MEMORY

HERE IN THE DARKNESS
YOUR LOVE STILL SURROUNDS ME
AND YOUR SENT STILL FILLS THE AIR
I REACH OUT FOR YOU
LIKE I ALWAYS DO
AND I LOSE MY MIND EVERY TIME CAUSE YOUR NOT THERE

EVERY NIGHT I GET LOST IN A DREAM
WHERE LIFE IS PERFECT AND YOU’RE STILL HERE WITH ME
BUT IT ALWAYS BRINGS ME DOWN
WAKING UP TO REALITY
THAT’S THE BAD THING
ABOUT A GOOD MEMORY

THE BEST PART OF MY LIFE
IS TRAPPED HERE IN MY MIND
I TRY SO HARD TO LEAVE IT BEHIND

BUT EVERY NIGHT I GET LOST IN A DREAM
WHERE LIFE IS PERFECT AND YOU’RE STILL HERE WITH ME
BUT IT ALWAYS BRINGS ME DOWN
WAKING UP TO REALITY
THAT’S THE BAD THING
ABOUT A GOOD MEMORY

AS I LYE HERE
I HEAR YOU BREATHIN’
THAT’S WHEN I DRIFT AWAY
