Lyrics: Zac Brown Band – Chicken Fried

Visit Zac Brown Band at MySpace & FaceBook

You know I like my chicken fried
Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up

Well I was raised up beneath the shade of a Georgia pine
And that’s home you know
Sweet tea pecan pie and homemade wine
Where the peaches grow
And my house it’s not much to talk about
But it’s filled with love that’s grown in southern ground
And a little bit of chicken fried

Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
Well I like to see the sunrise
See the love in my woman’s eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother’s love

Well its funny how it’s the little things in life that mean the most
Not where you live or the car you drive or the price tag on your clothes
There’s no dollar sign on a piece of mind this I’ve come to know
So if you agree have a drink with me
Raise you glasses for a toast
To a little bit of chicken fried

Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
I like to see the sunrise
See the love in my woman’s eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother’s love

I thank god for my life
And for the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly, let it ring.
Salute the ones who died
The ones that give their lives so we don’t have to sacrifice
All the things we love
Like our chicken fried

And cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
I like to see the sunrise
See the love in my woman’s eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother’s love

Get ya a little chicken fried
And cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
I like to see the sunrise
See the love in my woman’s eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother’s love

Lyrics: Zac Brown Band – Whatever It Is

Visit Zac Brown Band at MySpace & FaceBook

Whatever It Is

She’s got eyes that cut you like a knife
And her lips that taste like sweet red wine
And her pretty legs go to heaven every time
She got a gentle way that puts me at ease
When she walks in the room I can hardly breathe
Got a devasating smile-
Knock a grown man to his knees

She got whatever it is
That blows me away
She’s everything I wanna say to a woman but I couldn’t find the words to say
She got whatever it is
Don’t know what to do
Every time I try to tell her how it feels it comes out “I love you”
You’ve got whatever it is

You know I’ve never been the type that would ever wanna stay
Bring ’em home and night and they’re gone the next day
But that all changed when she walked into my life
And people ask me why it is I tell ’em I don’t know
There’s just something bout the woman makes me heart go-haywire
And she’s gonna be my wife

She got whatever it is
That blows me away
She’s everything I wanna say to a woman but I couldn’t find the words to say
She got whatever it is
I don’t know what to do
Every time I try to tell her how I feels it comes out “I love you”
You’ve got whatever it is

Now when you love me
Girl that’s how I feel
When you love me
I’m on top of the world
When you love me
I can live forever
When you love me
I am untouchable

You got whatever it is
That blows me away
You’re everything I wanna say to a woman but I couldn’t find the words to say
You’ve got whatever it is
Don’t know what to do
Every time I try to tell her how it feels it comes out “I love-I do”
You’ve got whatever it is
Yeah, you’ve got whatever it is

Lyrics: Robert Earl Keen – Amarillo Highway

I’m a high straight in Plainview
A side bet in Idalou
An’ a fresh deck in New Deal
Yeah, Some call me high hand
And some call me low hand
But I’m holdin’ what I am…The Wheel

(chorus)
I’m panhandlin’, man handlin’
Post holin’, high rollin’, dust bowlin’…daddy
An’ I ain’t got no blood in my veins
I just got them four lanes
Of hard…Amarillo Highway

I don’t wear no Stetson
But I’m willin’ to bet son
That I’m as big a Texan as you are

There’s a girl in her bare feet
Asleep on the back seat
And that trunk is full of Pearl beer and Lone Star

(chorus)
I’m panhandlin’, man handlin’
Post holin’, high rollin’, dust bowlin’…daddy
An’ I ain’t got no blood in my veins
I just got them four lanes
Of hard…Amarillo Highway

Gonna hop outta bed, Pop a pill in my head
Bust the Hub for the Golden Spread
Under blue skies, gonna stuff my hide
Behind some power glide
An get some southern fried…back in my eyes

(chorus)
I’m panhandlin’, man handlin’
Post holin’, high rollin’, dust bowlin’…daddy
An’ I ain’t got no blood in my veins
I just got them four lanes
Of hard…Amarillo Highway

An’ close I’ll ever get to heaven
Is makin’ speed up ol’ 87
Of that hard Amarillo Highway

Overdrawn Over Christmas

“Overdrawn Over Christmas” set to light up phone lines like a Christmas tree

It’s the perfect novelty holiday song for these trying times, and this week Bill Hennes of AllAboutCountry.com is beginning to work “Overdrawn Over Christmas” to Radio. The tempo song is timely, it’s hooky, it’s funny, and as Bill wrote last week, “Wow….this is a SMASH…..love it!” Tommy Joe Wilson, who many on the Row believe is poised to become the next breakout star from the Lone Star State, sings the heck out of this very danceable song. The veteran Country programmer Jay Phillips said, “I’ve been picking hits for 30 years. THIS is a hit!” The writers include veteran hitmakers Duane Hitchings (he wrote four of Rod Stewart’s biggest, including “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?”) and Don Goodman (writer of Blake Shelton’s “Ol’ Red,” Alabama’s “Angels Among Us” and many more), and the lovely Oklahoma singer/songwriter and veteran Radio sales star Amy Jack. “Overdrawn Over Christmas” will also be serviced to Radio via cdTEX in San Antonio.

“Overdrawn” is perfectly timed for this holiday season, when it seems that everybody, including major banks and Fortune 500 corporations – and even the U.S. Government – are overdrawn themselves. Companies big and small are laying off employees and shutting their doors, so your listeners will certainly relate to “Overdrawn Over Christmas,” which is far stronger musically and more relatable lyrically than “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer,” which has gotten holiday spins every year since 1984. “Overdrawn Over Christmas” is guaranteed to give your listeners 3 minutes of smiling relief from the challenges this holiday season. –

Great New Lyric Search Site

The webmaster over at  RealLyrics.com contacted me and wanted to know if I could get a link up for him. I usally don’t for such sites but for some reason I like this one. Granted they are still a young site and need more songs as well as artist listed but I like the direction they are going. Just yesterday, 7/25/08, they added almost 200 new song lyrics to their collection!

So if you need some lyrics check out their Lyrics Search

Lyrics: Bailey – Boys In Cowboy Boots

Visit Bailey’s Web Site at www.bailey-music.com.

Boys In Cowboy Boots

Buddy owns a truck that he calls by name
A rebuilt Ford, drives the girls insane
Mearl has a cap that he’s worn for years
With beer tabs lined from ear to ear.

Jake’s plowin’ on the tractor and he’s almost done.
Waitin’ on his friends and workin’ in the sun.
Blaire’s pickin’ up the beer, packin’ it in ice
Find ’em all together – It’s tailgate time!

You could pack it up and travel the world
But there’s nothin’ like a good ol’ boy,
To please this country girl
Some girls like guys with big strong hands
Or a nice lookin’ boy who understands
Some girls like guys with all the loot
But I feel right at home with the boys in cowboy boots.
Some girls like guys with fancy cars
Or a smooth talkin’ boy at a honky-tonk bar
Some girls chase guys in business suits
But I feel right at home with the boys in cowboy boots.
Boys in cowboy boots.

Head-lights blazin’, and the party’s on
Radio’s a blarin’ till the break of dawn
White T-shirts and tight blue jeans
Country boys like you’ve never seen
Frank’s down at the bar with his two step on
Got a girl on his table and a girl on his arm
Dancin’ all night, never stoppin’ to rest
Boot Scootin’ boys yeah – I like ’em the best

You could pack it up and travel the world
But there’s nothin’ like a good ol’ boy,
To please this country girl
Some girls like guys with big strong hands
Or a nice lookin’ boy who understands
Some girls like guys with all the loot
But I feel right at home with the boys in cowboy boots.
Some girls like guys with fancy cars
Or a smooth talkin’ boy at a honky-tonk bar
Some girls chase guys in business suits
But I feel right at home with the boys in cowboy boots.
Boys in cowboy boots.

They’ll melt your heart with southern charm
These country boys straight off the farm
Workin’ hard all day, playin’ hard all night
Boys in boots, they do it right.

You could pack it up and travel the world
But there’s nothin’ like a good ol’ boy,
To please this country girl
Some girls like guys with big strong hands
Or a nice lookin’ boy who understands
Some girls like guys with all the loot
But I feel right at home with the boys in cowboy boots.
Some girls like guys with fancy cars
Or a smooth talkin’ boy at a honky-tonk bar
Some girls chase guys in business suits
But I feel right at home with the boys in cowboy boots.
