Our Little Town Just another ordinary Friday night in our little town Going out cruising in the cars just to see if anybody was hanging ‘round I remember pulling up to a light, looking at the car just to my right When I saw her face I knew I’d found my girl, right there, that night So, I flagged her down into a gas station parking lot, asked her to come with me I took her by the hand, put her in shotgun, and we hit the town, wild and free I remember trying to think of something to say, some kind of foolish line But it didn’t matter anyway, I could tell by the look in her eye she was going to be mine I remember standing on her front porch, working up the nerve for that kiss goodnight I can still see the look on her Mama’s face when she turned on that old porch light It’s more than a memory, it’s kind of like a movie playing inside my head When I think of that girl and that little town, and the feeling in my heart When she first said “I love you”, in our little town It was graduation day and we were all ready to take on the world, right then, that day She took me by the hand, said “boy you better listen, cause there’s something important I’ve got to say I remember I almost broke down and cried when she said, “I’m going to move away to school” Then I thought to myself you’re going to lose this girl and if you let her go, then you’d be a fool I remember standing on her front porch, shaking and begging that girl not to leave I can still see the look on her Daddy’s face when I looked her in the eye and hit one knee It’s more than a memory, it’s kind of like a movie playing inside my head When I think of that girl and that little town, and the feeling in my heart When she first said “I love you”, in our little town Sometimes the times got a little hard But we seemed to make it work as long as we were right here In our little town It seems like a million years ago, but I remember everything about you back then There never was a time when I looked back with a single regret of how we started back when I was standing there on your front porch, working up the nerve for that kiss goodnight I can still see the look on your Mama’s face when she turned on that old porch light It’s more than a memory, it’s kind of like a movie playing inside my head When I think of that girl and that little town, and the feeling in my heart When she first said “I love you”, in our little town Yeah, in our little town Yeah, in our little town

I Wish I Had A Girl You can have your Cajun queens Down in New Orleans And take the movie stars Who drive impress me more cars Take your high class show and tell Don`t need no modern day Jezebel All I want, ain`t no lie Check it out, Leroy They breeze by Chorus Wish I had a girl who Walked like that, ooh, yeah Wish I had that girl, uh huh Wish I had a girl who Walked like that, yeah Wish I had that girl, yeah You can have your socialites Mmm, caviar, honey, champagne nights Me, I`ll take the nine to five stuff Oh, and I`ll tell you what Me, I`ll take what I can now So you know it`s hard to understand Not all it takes to satisfy Check it out, Leroy, they breeze by Chorus Well, I wish I had a girl like that And I`d take her home and Walk her all night long, yeah Solo Chorus

Somebody’s Cryin’ I saw the difference of opinion I should’ve seen it all along As my words turn into pages Pages slowly fade into the words of other songs At that time I say forgive me For I know not what’s to come If there’s something left in me Something to belive Then I won’t be afraid to run Chorus Somebody’s cryin’, hiding from the light Somebody’s hoping, hoping there’s a chance, that you can make it through the night Somebody’s cryin’, and they see you through eyes that used to shine so bright Somebody’s cryin’, and there’s no end in sight Now we’ve come to our decision But it can’t be made along If the blame should fall on me I know I can see another road that leads back home Chorus Solo Chorus Somebody’s cryin’, and there’s no end in sight

Ride Into The Sunset The world seems so different looking through my windshield It should only take a few thousand more miles before my heart’s healed Cause I don’t know where I’m going, and I don’t know where I’ve been I keep on living this life I’ve been given, hope I never hurt like this again Chorus I wanna ride into the sunet I wanna drive with the wind in my hair Keep rolling down this open road, breathe in that summer air I wanna ride into the sunset, and hope that you’re there This wasn’t your life, I guess you’ve always known So you headed out west just to see if you could make it on your own Now I’m running behind you, and I can’t see where you’ve gone The faster I go, it still seems so slow, but It keeps me holding on Chorus Solo Chorus

What If She Does You never thought she’d walk out And leaver her in that empty house Wondering where in the world to go now You don’t think she’ll ever recover From that bitterness, heartache, and hunger And pick herself back up But what if she does Chorus What if she puts her lipstick and makeup on Twirls around in that little red dress she bought Ready to make that small town Saturday night her own What it she shines as bright as a Texas sky Lights up a brand new cowboy’s eyes You don’t think she’ll fall in love But what if she does She didn’t know your reasons She kept her heart still beating Waiting for you to come back around You don’t think she’ll ever discover How to find happiness, kindness, and comfort In the arms of another love But what if she does Chorus Solo What if she lets that cowboy take her out And brings her back to that empty house You don’t think what’s done is done But what if she does You don’t think she’ll fall in love But what if she does

She Ain’t You Driving downtown just last week A dark haired angel pulled up next to me You got all mad before I couldn’t turn to see I took a peek, now I’m getting the third degree Chorus I don’t know what all the fuss is, why you gotta be so blue She ain’t my type cause she ain’t you Hanging down at the docks just the other day A blue eyed honey, she got to looking my way I looked at her and you slapped my right in the head I may be with you but baby I’m not dead Chorus I don’t know what all the fuss is, why you gotta be so blue She ain’t my type cause she ain’t you You know just how good our love is, and you know my heart is true She ain’t my type cause she ain’t you, no she ain’t you Hanging down at Tony’s just last night A red haired cutie got up and asked me to dance Before I had a chance to do what’s right You bitch slapped that girl, she didn’t have a chance Chorus
