Gypsy Boots

Baby don’t blame me
If I can’t get lovin’ you right.
Well baby don’t blame me,
If I can’t get loving you right.
I ain’t cut out for aprons,
Or staying home at night.

Well my mama was a hippie
And my daddy was a rollin’ stone.
Year my mama was a hippie
And my daddy was a rollin’ stone.
Well it don’t matter what you call me honey
My middle name is gone.

Chorus:
I was born in gypsy boots
With a guitar on my back,
Rebel soul and attitude,
Just like Johnny Cash.
Well this is just another town
And I’m only passing through
And I get around
In my gypsy boots.

I don’t wanna rock no babies
But baby I’ll rock you.
Don’t wanna rock no babies
But baby I’ll rock you.
I’ll take off everything,
But my gypsy boots.

I’m a country song
The kind that makes you cry.
Yeah I’m a country song
The kind that makes you cry.
I’ll drink up all your whiskey,
And leave you high and dry.

Chorus:
I was born in gypsy boots
With a guitar on my back,
Rebel soul and attitude,
Just like Johnny Cash.
Well this is just another town
And I’m only passing through
And I get around
In my gypsy boots.

Hey and I get around,
In my gypsy boots.

If You Want Fire

I got this dream I’ve been dreamin’
The perfect picture of love
Sparks and fireworks flyin’, almost too hot to touch
Then everything I wanted and then some
Suddenly walked in the room
I said I needed different but maybe I spoke to soon

It’s every kind of crazy I could ever imagine
A battle ragin between my head & my heart
But if you gotta have it all that madness and passion
Then you’ll learn
Ooo, you’ll learn
If you want fire
It better be worth the burn

We’re either laughin or cryin
Flyin high or runnin away
But in between the thunder & lightning
There’s always another day
Another day

It’s every kind of crazy I could ever imagine
A battle ragin ‘tween my head & my heart
But if you gotta have it all that madness and passion
Then you’ll learn
Ooo, you’ll learn
If you want fire
It better be worth the burn

Sometimes it feels all or nothin
Sometimes it’s nothin at all
But in between those moments it’s magic
That softens the fall

It’s every kind of crazy I could ever imagine
A battle ragin between my head & my heart
But if you gotta have it all that madness and passion
Then you’ll learn
Ooo, you’ll learn
If you want fire
It better be worth the burn

If you want fire
It better be worth the burn

A Million Ways to Run

In the basement of the church.
I took the last chair in the room
Embarrassed and ashamed,
but that all began to change,
when she stood up and spoke her truth.

She said I came here years ago, when I lost my sanity,
I hit an all time-low,
but then I found serenity.
I took shelter hiding from the pain, in any place
to make it go away.

[CHORUS]
In the arms of a stranger
keeping company with danger,
or staring’ down the barrel of a gun
At the bottom of a bottle,
getting numb with every swallow,
it’s easy, when it’s what you’ve always done,
With a Million Ways to Run

I was the first one out the door
But her words echoed in my head
I took the long way home
but no longer felt alone
Cause I’d lived everything she said
I thought about lost moments of my past
And then I knew, there was no going back…

To the arms of a stranger
Keeping company with danger
or staring’ down the barrel of a gun
The bottom of a bottle,
Getting numb with every swallow
Cause it’s easy, when it’s what you’ve always done
With a Million Ways to Run

[BRIDGE]
There’s a freedom I have found
In staying on the ground
Long enough, to chase those demons down…

And I thank God I know I’m Not the only one,
with A Million ways to run

What Happens In Vegas (Follows You Home)

I never really liked this place
hard to tell the nights from days
lost inside a smoky maze, with no last call…

You walked up , I turned around,
You were drinking something watered down
Maybe I don’t hate this town, after all

[CHORUS]
Could sin city save us
could Lady luck wave us
on through the velvet rope
The whispers in my ear, said everything stays here
But we know something they don’t
Sometimes What Happens in Vegas….
Follows you home
Follows you home

It’s just a state of mind
and crossing that Nevada line
I thought I’d never find
my wildest dream,
I almost had to live without,
now neon lights are washing out
any shadow of a doubt, and I believe

[CHORUS]
Sin City saved us
Lady Luck waved us
On through the velvet rope
The whispers in my ear said
everything stays here
but we know something they don’t
Sometimes What Happens in Vegas….
Follows you home
Follows you home

[BRIDGE]
Among the false promises, glitter and phoniness,
somehow we’ve found the real thing….

[REPEAT 2nd CHORUS]

Merry Go Round

I’ve been dreamin’ & drivin’ so fast for so long
Fallin’ & climbin’, fallin’ & carryin’ on
Hell bent on stayin’ one step ahead
So caught up in the game, I can’t catch my breath
Livin’ too bright to soak up the sun
Missin’ the miles for the races I’ve run

But I’m slowly slowin’ me down
Knowin’ this world will go round
It’ll keep goin’ round even when I stop spinnin’
I’m figurin’ out it ain’t all about winnin’
You ride like the wind
Smile like a child
Land with both feet on the ground
The trick is to know when to let go of the merry go round

When the ride leaves you dizzy and life’s such a blur
There’s no difference between where you are & where you were
It’s movin’ too fast, and God knows it will
Sometimes you need some time sittin’ still

And I’m slowly slowin’ me down
Knowin’ this world will go round
It’ll keep goin’ round even when I stop spinnin’
I’m figurin’ out it ain’t all about winnin’
You ride like the wind
Smile like a child
Land with both feet on the ground
The trick is to know when to let go of the merry go round

You ride like the wind
Smile like a child
Land with both feet on the ground
The trick is to know when to let go
The trick is to know when to let go of the merry go round
Oh this merry go round

The One You Love

( Feat. Vince Gill )

He says it’s none of my damn business, how much he drinks
And he doesn’t have a problem, no mater what the whole town thinks
At his baby’s birthday party, there was whiskey on his breath
Everybody wants to save him, but he’s not ready yet

You wanna scream, you wanna cry
You want someone to tell you why
All the hope that’s in your heart is not enough
You hit your knees, you shake your fists
Oh, it’s the deepest wound there is
When you can’t help the one you love

Her sister reads the bible, her father sits an’ snores
They’re with her every minute, ’cause they may not have many more
She was dancin’ in New Orleans, only seven weeks ago
Life may go on without her, but not the life we know

You wanna scream, you wanna cry
You want someone to tell you why
All the hope that’s in your heart is not enough
You hit your knees, you shake your fists
Oh, it’s the deepest wound there is
When you can’t help the one you love

When someone’s slippin’ away
Right before your eyes
How useless we are
Is a painful surprise

You wanna scream, you wanna cry
You want someone to tell you why
All the hope that’s in your heart is not enough
You hit your knees, you shake your fists
Oh, it’s the deepest wound there is
When you can’t help the one you love

When you can’t help the one you love

Poor Girls Dream

She don’t dream of spring in Paris
Jettin off to Singapore
She just needs a quarter tank
To get her to the grocery store
She don’t buy filet mignon
She just wants some extra pork in her beans

It may not sound like much
But that’s the stuff that makes up a poor girls dream

She’s tired of haulin baskets
Down to the laundry mat
Dealin with the weirdos
And the stress of all of that
She’d rather put her dollar somewhere other than a washin machine

Well it may not sound like much
But that’s the stuff that makes up a poor girls dream
If you’ve got a million you want two
If you ain’t got nothin any little thing will do

She works on the clock
Punchin in & out for years
She’d like to take that double shift
And shift it down a gear
Go home and light a candle
Paint her toes a different color and just breathe

Well it may not sound like much
But that’s the stuff that makes up a poor girls dream
If you’ve got a million you want two
If you ain’t got nothin any little thing will do

A little piece of mind
Just a taste of what could be
It may not sound like much
But that’s the stuff that makes up poor girls dream

Yeah it may not sound like much
But that’s the stuff that makes up poor girls dream
A poor girls dream

If I Could Be You

The first time we met I swore I hated you
When all you had to do was walk into the room
You got everyone’s attention just by bein you
Something I could never do
But always wanted to
You were beautiful, you had it all
Never bought yourself a drink
And sittin there just watchin you
I couldn’t help but think

If I could be you
I’d take your place
For an hour, for a day
I could do anything I wanted to
If I could have your perfect life
In a second I’d trade mine
There’s nothin in this world I wouldn’t do
If I could be you

Standin in line after too much wine in the ladies room
We started talkin bout the things men do
Yeah we’d been in each others shoes
Now it’s ten years later and we’ve shared everything
Tears, clothes & dreams
I helped you pick your wedding ring
I remember when I held your hand the day the baby came
How that whole first year you’d call in tears
So worn out you would say

If I could be you
I’d take your place
For an hour for a day
I’d do the kind of things that I used to
What I wouldn’t give sometimes
For a second that’s just mine
On days like this there’s nothin I wouldn’t do
If I could be you

Well time flies by and how things change
Sittin in this room today
There’s not much either one of us can say
The doctors have done all they can
I’m holding your hand again
Wishin I could take it all away

If I could be you
I’d take your place
For an hour for a day
And I’d gladly bear the pain you’re goin through
To give you back your perfect life
In a second I’d trade mine
There’s nothin in this world I wouldn’t do
Girl there’s nothin in this world I wouldn’t do
If I could be you

Tough With Me

Your neck is burned your body’s hurtin’
Boss man’s been on your back all day
You’re out there in the hot sun workin
While he’s sippin iced tea in the shade
You have to put up with so much & you feel beat up
But that’s all about to fade away

[CHORUS]
Come on, lay your head down on my shoulder
Let your troubled mind go free
All day long you’ve had to be strong, but now you’re home & I’ll make you see
You don’t have to be tough with me
You don’t have to be tough with me

Just leave your boots there by the doorway
I’ll pour us both a glass of wine
I’ll bet I can think of some way
To help bring back your tender side
It’s a heavy load to bear in your world out there
But tonight you’re back in mine

[CHORUS]
Come on, lay your head down on my shoulder
Let your troubled mind go free
All day long you’ve had to be strong, but now you’re home & I’ll make you see
You don’t have to be tough with me

There it is now there you go, there’s that smile I know
Let’s keep it goin all night long
All night long

[CHORUS]
Come on, lay your head down on my shoulder
Let your troubled mind go free
All day long you’ve had to be strong, but now you’re home & I’ll make you see
You don’t have to be tough with me
You don’t have to be tough with me

You Tell Me

( Feat. Johnny Reid )

You tell me cuz I don’t know
How we are or where we go from here
I can’t read your mind
Is everything okay
Oh don’t ask me, I don’t know what to say
You tell me
What comes next
What I can and can’t expect from you
Is there somethin we can mend
What will the story be
Oh you’ve got all the answers that I need

Do we wave a flag and say it’s over
Do we honor all the vows we made
I love the way we were
Tomorrow what will we be
You tell me

Cuz I cant play
This guessing game where love can stay or go
It changes with the wind
What our hearts will do
Whatever way it blows is up to you

Do we wave a flag and say it’s over
Do we honor all the vows we made
I love the way we were
Tomorrow what will we be
You tell me

Do we wave a flag and say it’s over
Do we honor all the vows we made
I love the way we were
Tomorrow what will we be
You tell me
You tell me
