"3rd Gear & 17"

"3rd Gear & 17"


I held the keys to that Chevrolet
and you held the keys to my heart
I'd throw a fit, hit the dash,
get out and kick the tire
when that old piece of junk wouldn't start
It'd be smoking good I'm slam down the hood
Just to see you laughing at me
On the other side of a dirty windshield,
lookin' as pretty as could be

We sure saw a lot of miles,
never even crossed that county line
I would've bet the farm, given my right arm
so you'd always be mine
Did we crash and burn or make a wrong turn
or run out of gasoline?
I lost you around 3rd gear and 17

In the blink of an eye high school flew by
you went your way and I went mine
But we swore we'd make it,
our love could take it
400 miles could stand the test of time

Well I left that fall to play college ball,
but my dreams would all come to an end
'Cause you know the big leagues never called,
and you went and fell in love with him

We sure saw a lot of miles,
never even crossed that county line
I would've bet the farm, given my right arm
so you'd always be mine
Did we crash and burn or make a wrong turn
or run out of gasoline?
I lost you around 3rd gear and 17

Memories flash through my mind like old faded photographs
I still think about you in that red Malibu
and I just can't help but laugh

We sure saw a lot of miles,
never even crossed that county line
I would've bet the farm, given my right arm
so you'd always be mine
Did we crash and burn or make a wrong turn
or run out of gasoline?
I lost you around 3rd gear and 17

Love broke down around 3rd gear and 17
I lost you around 3rd gear and 17

"A Texas Cafe"

"A Texas Cafe"


In every little town from Dalhart to Laredo
There's a corner cafe' with an open sign in the window
As soon as you walk in a waitress greets you with a grin
And says make yourself feel right at home
Old men sit at a booth telling tall tales and stretching the truth
Bragging how bad the good ol' days used to be
They're all too tired to plow besides their tractors are rusted now
So they order hot apple pie with a cup of coffee

[CHORUS:]
Some things will never change
After all these years the menu is still the same
Serving that sweet ice tea with a touch of southern hospitality
So order yourself a taste of yesterday at a Texas Cafe'

There's a Wurlitzer jukebox full of old forty fives
Playing three songs for a quarter or one for a dime
The cook said he was a boy when it was brand new
To him it seemed like yesterday but it was 1962

There was a family owned five and dime next door
That could not compete with a chain discount store
On the outskirts of town the drive in theater is shut down
With a screen without a hero since Audie Murphy

[CHORUS]

There are fields with no grain, railroad tracks with no train
And an old courthouse with nobody left to blame
Town square is boarded up and brick roads are worn down
But the chicken fried steak special is still around

[CHORUS]

"After The Rodeo"

"After The Rodeo"


Just a worn out truck, a coffee cup
And another night out on the interstate
It's not exactly where he thought he'd be
When he reached this age

There is an old man staring back at him in the rear view
With a million miles of life in his eyes
And makes him ask those questions he don't want to
Oh, but it might be time

Does a shooting star miss the sky
When it hits the ground?
And how long can a woman go on loving you
If you're not around?

The years are flying faster now
So tell me how eight seconds feel so slow
And I wonder where old cowboys go
After the rodeo

There's a house and eighty acres he calls home
When he's not on the road
And a woman who's been true to him so long
But lonely, sure gets old

Lately he's been thinking 'bout her all the time
And on nights like this he'll miss her most of all
His body and his mind knows that he needs to find
A softer place to fall

Does a shooting star miss the sky
When it hits the ground?
And how long can a woman go on loving you
If you're not around?

The years are flying faster now
So tell me how eight seconds feel so slow
And I wonder where old cowboys go
After the rodeo
Lord, I wonder where old cowboys go

"All American Country Girl"

"All American Country Girl"


If you'd had made a tag on the back
Of those designer jeans she's wearin'
It's some big name brand you can't buy at a Wal-mart
And you from what she's got on

From her Versace to her Louis Vuitton
You wouldn't think she'd know every Merle Haggard song by heart

But when it comes down to the heart of the situation
She's a little rockin' honky tonkin' modern day Minnie Pearl
I should know, I've been all across this great nation
Oh there ain't no doubt, she's an All American country girl

Well she comes pullin' up to you at a red light
In some high-fallutin fancy foreign car
Rich lady shades and a little dog in the window
You'd never know she was born and raised right down on her grandaddy's farm

But when it comes down to the heart of the situation
She's a little rockin' honky tonkin' modern day Minnie Pearl
I should know, I've been all across this great nation
Oh there ain't no doubt, she's an All American country girl

There's somethin' bout her slow southern twang
It sweet talks me into anything
Her smile, her wink, and her pretty please
Brings any country boy down to his knees

But when it comes down to the heart of the situation
She's a little rockin' honky tonkin' modern day Minnie Pearl
I should know, I've been all across this great nation
Oh there ain't no doubt, she's an All American country girl
Oh there ain't no doubt, she's an All American country girl

"Amarillo Fair"

"Amarillo Fair"


I've never won a bear throwing a ball at the tri-state fair
I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn
You were laughing at me and looking mighty dandy
Licking your lips and your cotton candy
I fell in love with you right then and there
When I saw you at the Amarillo Fair

Time stood still as we rode the Ferris wheel
There I was on top of the world
I said that I've been known to be accident-prone
So I asked you if I could hold your hand
That night I stole a kiss on the tunnel of love
And to this very day I still can't get enough
I fell in love with you right then and there when I saw you at the Amarillo Fair

My hearts a tilt a whirl since I gave it to you girl
I don't want this ride to ever end
Corn dogs and barbecue a frosted funnel cake and you
All made that night to good to be true
I fell in love with you right then and there when I saw you at the Amarillo Fair

I've never won a bear throwing a ball at the tri-state fair
I still can't hit the broad side of a barn
I've never won a thing till I gave you a diamond ring
Now I'm the luckiest man in the world
I fell in love with you right then and there when I saw you at the Amarillo Fair

"Amazing Grace"
(with Kina Lankford)

"Amazing Grace"
(with Kina Lankford)



Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.

"Angels & Outlaws"

"Angels & Outlaws"


Born and raised in oklahoma the young man moved to tennessee
He started runnin with the devil chasin that honky tonkers dream
Well at some dive out on life's highway headed southbound
She was sent from up above and her true love turned his world around

[Chorus:]
God bless angels and pray for outlaws
To find a new found love for their lost cause
Lord knows she loved him despite all his flaws
And he loved her cause she made him wanna be
A better man

No there weren't no halo above her beautiful brown hair
No he never saw her wings he always knew that they were there
Lord she had this way of knowin when he needed her the most
Its like she had some kind of connection with the father son
And the holy ghost

[Repeat chorus]

Lord know it wasn't cold as hell
Like everybody thought it would be
Lord it was actually a beautiful july morning
When he and that preacher man came walkin
Up out of that tree

[Repeat chorus]

He loved her cause she made him wanna be
A better man
And he was

"Barbed Wire Halo"

"Barbed Wire Halo"


Well God bless Texas
And Deakon Shackleford
He read the bible seven times
And he believed every word
That ol' beat up leather book had been through it all
He sat on the back pew so he could chew him a chaw
Singin'
"Amazing Grace
How sweet the sound"
That saved a wrech like me
He carried candy for the kids in his Sunday dress coat
He'd take me fishin' after church
And taught me things I needed to know
No, Deakon didn't have a family
Lord knows he wished he did
He told the whole congregation that I was his grandkid

[Chorus:]
And today he joined up with Jesus
Wearing shiny pearl snaps
We sang a few gospel hymns
And then the soldier played taps
I bet he's walkin' with Pete down the street paved with gold
Showin' off his brand spanking new wings
And his barbed wire halo

He married sweet Emma Grace before the war was through
She held his right arm next to his anchor tatoo
He was on a ship off at sea when she died in child birth
He lost his whole world from the far side of the earth
He lost the will to love
He lost the will to live
Until he met a man who taught him to forgive
Yeah life took him to hell and back
To hell and back a time or two
But in the end he beat the devil until he was black and blue
Singin'
"I once was lost
But now I'm found
Was blind
But now I see"

[Chorus]

Before he went he made me promise him that I wouldn't cry
And though I told him that I wouldn't I couldn't help but lie
Cause today he joined up with Jesus
Wearing shiny pearl snaps
We sang a few gospel hymns
And then the soldier played taps
I bet he's walking with Pete down the street paved with gold
As sure as the old church bell still rings
He always said he had country in his soul
He's showing off his brand spanking new wings
And his barbed wire halo
Sweet chariots coming forth to carry me home

"Best For Last"

"Best For Last"


He made the heavens and the earth
Separated day from night
He made man and it was good
Still something wasn't right
And all creation stood in awe
At the woman standing there
Wearing nothing but a smile
And a flower in her hair

And all along, the good lord knew
What the world would be like without a girl like you
Your love's the kind of beautiful
That will never be surpassed
Now I know why he saved the best for last

There was someone who broke my heart
Long before I fell for you
I would have swore she was the one
I thought she was my dream come true
As all the walls came crashing down
I hit my knees right there
Looking back I'm thanking God
For that unanswered prayer

And all along, the good lord knew
What the world would be like without a girl like you
Your love's the kind of beautiful
That will never be surpassed
Now I know why he saved the best for last

How can I describe my love for you
You're my life you're my whole wide world
It's kinda like a feeling I feel holding our new born baby girl

And all along, the good lord knew
What the world would be like without a girl like you
Your love's the kind of beautiful
That will never be surpassed
Now I know why he saved the best for last
Now I know why he saved the best for last
