Verse 1

You didn’t even say goodbye
As you walked out the door
Left us in a cloud of dust
Headed west on 64

Standing on the front porch
With Old Blue by my side
Poor boy doesn’t even know
You’re not just out for a ride

Chorus1

Now there is not much
For me and this old boy to do
But sit in my chair
And think about you

Those big brown eyes
Really don’t understand
What he did so wrong
To be dealt this rotten hand

You broke my heart
And you broke his heart too

Now it’s just Me and Old Blue

Verse 2

You took off to LA
And left this country boy alone
Needed to follow your dreams
And start a new life on your own

I always knew deep down inside
You needed more than I could give
This simple life was not your style
This country life is not how you want to live

Chorus 1

Now there is not much
For me and this old boy to do
But sit in my chair
And think about you

Those big brown eyes
Really don’t understand
What he did so wrong
To be dealt this rotten hand

You broke my heart
And you broke his heart too

Now it’s just Me and Old Blue


Verse 3

This old boy on my lap
Has been with us from the start
I didn’t think you had it in you
To leave and break his heart

I hope your dreams come true
And get everything you seek to find
Just don’t ever regret
These two hearts you left behind

Chorus 2

Now there is not much
For me and this old boy to do
But sit in my chair
And think about you

I will move on
And find someone new some day
Not sure about this old boy
He wanted you to stay

You broke my heart
And you broke his heart too

Now it’s just Me and Old Blue

Me and Old Blue

Verse 1

There are days I live with worry
And can’t seem to shake this fear
I know deep down in my heart
That you are always near

I just need to call your name
God, please show me the way
You are right there to guide every step
I need to listen more when I pray

Chorus 1

My heart is open God
I am leaving fear behind
My heart is open God
Let your words fill my mind

I have to take my next step
Not knowing what is near
I have to take my next step
And trust that you are here

I may not know what lies ahead
This road has many bends
I give it all up to you God
Because you know how this ends


Verse 2

This world around me seems crazy
Sometimes I need to step away
The peace I find is in your word
I need to clear my mind and pray

I need to always remind myself
That I am safe inside your arms
I can let the world go and be free
Knowing nothing can cause me harm


Chorus 1

My heart is open God
I am leaving fear behind
My heart is open God
Let your words fill my mind

I have to take my next step
Not knowing what is near
I have to take my next step
And trust that you are here

I may not know what lies ahead
This road has many bends
I give it all up to you God
Because you know how this ends

Verse 3

Life is not always perfect
But you are with me good or bad
I can handle the highs and the lows
And search for you when I am sad

You give me the strength to face each day
With you, I can handle it all
I am not in this alone
You will never let me fall


Chorus 1

My heart is open God
I am leaving fear behind
My heart is open God
Let your words fill my mind

I have to take my next step
Not knowing what is near
I have to take my next step
And trust that you are here

I may not know what lies ahead
This road has many bends
I give it all up to you God
Because you know how this ends

You Know How This Ends

Verse 1

I saw that smile when you were eight
I held my breath and knew
My plans would have to wait

I closed my eyes
Now stands in front of me a man
What happened to that little boy
That use to hold my hand

Chorus 1

Grab your dreams boy
And hold them tight
What’s in your heart
Is worth the fight

Don’t lose hope on
The words of another man

The one above has the greater plan


Verse 2

Don’t know what it is about that game
But it stole your heart
And the passion can’t be tamed

Set your eyes above
He will let you touch the sky
Stay humble always son
And let that ball fly




Chorus 1


Grab your dreams boy
And hold them tight
What’s in your heart
Is worth the fight

Don’t lose hope on
The words of another man

The one above has the greater plan



Verse 3

I look up and put my trust in the man
Hope you always remember
That I’m your biggest fan

Time is moving fast
Only one more to go
I just want each moment to last
Before your next show


Chorus 1

Verse 1

They said that you were crazy
And had a heart of stone
I didn’t believe a word they said
And had to find out on my own

How could I go wrong
With eyes so sweet and blue
That pretty southern smile
Lord, I didn’t have a clue

Chorus 1:

So it’s One Mississippi
Two Mississippi
Three Mississippi
Four

How many seconds will I need
Before I head towards the door

What you did today girl
Put me under the gun
Just turn around and give me
One more second to run

Verse 2

Those first two weeks
I was under your spell
But just like that
It all went straight to Hell

Those eyes turned dark and gray
I don’t recognize this girl
This is not what I signed up for
I want out of your world


Chorus 1:

So it’s One Mississippi
Two Mississippi
Three Mississippi
Four

How many seconds will I need
Before I head towards the door

What you did today girl
Put me under the gun
Just turn around and give me
One more second to run


Verse 3

I stand here staring at the wall
Don’t know which way to turn
You are teaching me lessons
I didn’t want to learn

Can’t take this one more second
There has to be a way
I need to get out that door
Please don’t ask me to stay


Chorus 2

So it’s One Mississippi
Two Mississippi
Three Mississippi
Four

How many seconds will I need
Before I head towards the door

What you did today girl
Put me under the gun
Just turn around and give me
One more second to run

All I am asking for
Is one more second to run

One More Second To Run

Verse 1

I feel the sun on my eyes
Telling me it’s time to rise
I see that smile on your face
And my heart begins to race

I Thank the Lord
And steal a kiss
Times like this
I wouldn’t miss

I’ll get the coffee going girl (talk)

Chorus 2

I love my mornings with you
Birds are singing right on cue
I love my mornings with you
No complaints about this view

Snuggled up on that porch swing
Wouldn’t change one damn thing

I love my mornings with you

Verse 2

No doubt I am blessed
I don’t know why I will confess
I had some stuff in my past
Moving forward this one will last

I Thank the Lord
And steal a kiss
Times like this
I wouldn’t miss

I’ll get you another cup girl (talk)

Chorus 1

I love my mornings with you
Birds are singing right on cue
I love my mornings with you
No complaints about this view

Snuggled up on that porch swing
Wouldn’t change one damn thing

I love my mornings with you

Verse 3

Let’s take a ride in my truck
On back roads and get stuck
We won’t call anyone
Just stay here and have some fun

I Thank the Lord
Turn up our song
I could lay with you
All night long

Let me pour you a glass of wine girl (talk)

Chorus 2

I love my evenings with you
The moon is shining right on cue
I love my evenings with you
No complaints about this view

Snuggled up in my truck bed
Looking forward to what’s ahead

I love my evenings with you

I Thank the Lord
And hold you tight
Forget the past
This one is right

My Mornings With You

Verse 1

I felt your stare
The second I walked in
I know your story boy
I know where you been

Surprised to see you there
Standing all alone
She wasn’t what you thought she be
Hmmm, who what have known?

Chorus 1

Bet you never guessed
I’d be back in the game
Just needed a little time
Now this girl’s not the same

No need to tell me
That I’m looking good
I got it together now
You didn’t think I could

You stand there looking at me
Like you know what I’m about
Not tonight boy
You sit this one out

Verse 2

You see a different light
Shining in my eyes
That’s because they’re not
Blinded by your lies

I don’t want you back
Like I have in the past
Remember you walked out the door
Baby that was the last

Chorus 1

Bet you never guessed
I’d be back in the game
Just needed a little time
Now this girl’s not the same

No need to tell me
That I’m looking good
I got it together now
You didn’t think I could

You stand there looking at me
Like you know what I’m about
Not tonight boy
You sit this one out


Verse 3

Now there are all these other guys
Might just take a chance
Don’t need you around no more
It’s my time to dance

Just go sit down
I will show you how to play
You are not in this game anymore
Not now or any other day

Chorus 2

Bet you never guessed
I’d be back in the game
Just needed a little time
Now this girl’s not the same

No need to tell me
That I’m looking good
I got it together now
You didn’t think I could


Stop telling me
You know what I’m about
Not tonight boy
You sit this one out

Not tonight or ever boy
You sit this one out

You Sit This One Out

Verse 1

I put in the time
The days have been long
It’s the price you pay
To prove that you belong

It’s been a long time coming
Not just another show
I’m diggin in tight
And ready to go

Chorus 1

Wake up this house
Let’s get this party started

Wake up this house
No room for the brokenhearted

I feel the blood pumping in my veins
Willing to fight until none remains

Let’s wake up this house

Verse 2

I’ve been holding it in
But now the time is here
I take a deep breath
Cause there is no room for fear

I need this crowd
More than they need me
Let’s light it up
For all the world to see


Chorus 1

Wake up this house
Let’s get this party started

Wake up this house
No room for the brokenhearted

I feel the blood pumping in my veins
Willing to fight until none remains

Let’s wake up this house

Verse 3

I overlook the pain
It’s all for the glory
I just need that one shot
To add to my story

You can look in my eyes
And see that I’m all in
I’m about to show you
What it takes to win


Chorus 1

Wake up this house
Let’s get this party started

Wake up this house
No room for the brokenhearted

I feel the blood pumping in my veins
Willing to fight until none remains

Let’s wake up this house

Wake up this House

Verse 1

We had our date in Paris
Like I always dreamed we would
We laughed, we cried, you held my hand
I just really wish you could

We talked about my little man
And how he’s just like you
I talked about what you would miss
You said, I”ll have a better view

Chorus 1

I was never really Daddy’s girl
But in my heart I knew
You don’t have to be Daddy’s girl
For love to be true

You never said you loved me
But I knew it anyway
I never said I loved you
But I’ll get the chance someday


Verse 2


We had our date in Paris
Like I always dreamed we would
We talked about past mistakes
You said don’t worry It’s all good

You said I looked beautiful
On my wedding day
Should have been spoken sooner
But you couldn’t find the words to say



Chorus 1

I was never really Daddy’s girl
But in my heart I knew
You don’t have to be Daddy’s girl
For love to be true

You never said you loved me
But I knew it anyway
I never said I loved you
But I’ll get the chance someday


Verse 3


We had our date in Paris
Like I always dreamed we would
When it was time to say goodbye
I didn’t think I could

You hugged me tight
As my tears began to flow
One last kiss on my cheek
And you said I need to go


Chorus 2

I was never really Daddy’s girl
But in my heart I knew
You don’t have to be Daddy’s girl
For love to be true

You never said you loved me
But I knew it anyway
I never said I loved you
But I’ll get the chance someday

I never said I loved you
It will be the first thing I say

You didn’t even say goodbye

Left us in a cloud of dust
Headed west on 64

Standing on the front porch
With Old Blue by my side
Poor boy doesn’t even know
You’re not just out for a ride

Chorus1

Now there is not much
For me and this old boy to do
But sit in my chair
And think about you

Those big brown eyes
Really don’t understand
What he did so wrong
To be dealt this rotten hand

You broke my heart
And you broke his heart too

Now it’s just Me and Old Blue

Verse 2

You took off to LA
And left this country boy alone
Needed to follow your dreams
And start a new life on your own

I always knew deep down inside
You needed more than I could give

This country life is not how you want to live

These two hearts you left behind

Chorus 2

Now there is not much

You broke my heart
And you broke his heart too

Knowing nothing can cause me harm

What happened to that little boy

What’s in your heart
Is worth the fight

Don’t lose hope on
The words of another man

The one above has the greater plan

But it stole your heart
And the passion can’t be tamed

Set your eyes above
He will let you touch the sky
Stay humble always son
