"Drinkin' Songs And Other Logic" (2005)

Drinkin' Songs And Other Logic Lyrics – Clint Black

I'm lookin' at a busy bartender
There's one man party goin' one
I'm sittin' here nursin' a longneck beer
Tryin' to forget you're gone
And I've got a fresh roll of quarters
For an all night honky tonk sound
It keeps me singin' a different tune
So the bottle won't let me down

Drinkin' songs and other logic get me over you
If there's a bullet I can dodge it with a shot of ninety proof
With the jukebox now in session and Haggard ringin' true
Drinkin' songs and other logic get me through

It's a good life here in the nightlife
Bedin' in the neon glow
The bartender, me and the kings of country
Playin' everythin' we know
The Red headed stanger's smokin'
He burned a hole in his guitar
And I'm drowin' in a whisky river
Lord, that's a-runnin' right through this bar

Drinkin' songs and other logic get me over you
If there's a bullet I can dodge it with a shot of ninety proof
With the jukebox now in session and Willie ringin' true
Drinkin' songs and other logic get me through

Oh, lonesome me, I'm walkin' floors, hello walls, and swingin' doors
Your cheatin' heart, you done me wrong, and the list goes on and on

Drinkin' songs and other logic get me over you
If there's a bullet I can dodge it with a shot of ninety proof
With the jukebox now in session and the music ringin' true
Drinkin' songs and other logic get me through
Drinkin' songs and other logic get me through

Heartaches Lyrics – Clint Black

The doctor told me I'd get better in time
The pains in my chest won't drive me outta my mind
A little patience and I'll get over this one
Now even he would admit his diagnosis was wrong

'Cause here come those heartaches again
I've got a memory that's wearin' me thin
I'll have an IV of somethin' strong
'Cause I just might not have that long

'Cause here come those heartaches again
I see you will be checkin' me in
Doctor, give me just one more shot
There's no tellin' how long I've got

I'll need a bypass of anything I might feel
A big glass of pain killer
It might even seem like I'm here
But I won't bother tellin' my HMO
'Cause everytime I was dyin'
They kept letting me go

And here come those heartaches again
I've got a memory that's wearin' me thin
I'll have an IV of somethin' strong
'Cause I just might not have that long

'Cause here come those heartaches again
I see you will be checkin' me in
Doctor, give me just one more shot
There's no tellin' how long I've got

'Cause here come those heartaches again

Code Of The West Lyrics – Clint Black

All my life I've been a cowboy in my heart
Every western hero on the screen's
Been with me from the start
Ridin' high and showin' me the way
And they've been there with me through my toughest times
We'd ride out to the boundries but we never crossed those lines
And that's a code that I'm still livin' by today

The code of the west was black and white
Good guys and the bad
You would always know who's wrong or right
By the color of their hat

Now there aren't so many happy trails
I've ridden some you wouldn't wanna see
You don't go off into the sunset
And they don't run from sea to shinin' sea

And it's good to see the bad guys on the run
While our modern day heroes show 'em how the west was won
On their trail 'til they bring the last one down
We could use a few more cowboys here today
A few more days of reckoning and a lot more hell to pay
Where that debt is owed there ain't no middle ground

The code of the west was black and white
The good guys and the bad
You would always know who's wrong or right
By the color of their hat

Now there aren't so many happy trails
I've ridden some you wouldn't wanna see
You don't go off into the sunset
And they don't run from sea to shinin' sea

The code of the west was black and white
The good guys and the bad
You would always know who's wrong and who was right
By the color of their hat

Now there aren't so many happy trails
I've ridden some you wouldn't wanna see
You don't go off into the sunset
And they don't run from sea to shinin' sea

All my life I've been a cowboy in my heart

Rainbow In The Rain Lyrics – Clint Black

I've seen the storms comin' so many times I'm losin' track
Yesterdays clouds are rollin' in again
Oh, and what a woman, every time I start thinkin' back
How she's come and gone just like the wind

And there's no such thing as old forgotten memories
No such thing as the only one to blame
And I'm not one who'll never see the forest for the trees
But I can't find a rainbow in the rain

I wake up in the mornin'
Hope I got you outta my head
But not if I'm shiverin' from the cold
And the red skies warnin' to say I'd better stay in bed
And don't go lookin' for a pot of gold

'Cause there's no such thing as old forgotten memories
No such thing as the only one to blame
And I'm not one who'll never see the forest for the trees
But I can't find a rainbow in the rain

No, there's no such thing as old forgotten memories
And I don't go lookin' for rainbows in the rain

Undercover Cowboy Lyrics – Clint Black

Sneakin' all around
Hopin' that he won't be recognized
He looks her up and down
Maybe she'd believe his little lies
All the misinformation
Will make it hard to check his alibis
It's a tricky operation
Even for the master of disguise

Undercover cowboy
Workin' undercovers all over town
Just another plowboy
Tryin' to cover a lot of ground
Undercover cowboy
He'll tell ya everythin' you need to do
To be an undercover cowgirl
The undercover cowboy only wants to know
How to get under the cover with you

Undercover cool
He tells her all about his cattle ranch
From the tiny little pool
That's what he likes to call his oil patch
With all the colors of the rainbow
He's gonna paint you a lovely view
But you can only lay a little low
'Til he can let ya know about a secret rendezvous

Undercover cowboy
Workin' undercovers all over town
Just another plowboy
Tryin' to cover a lot of ground
Undercover cowboy
He'll tell ya everythin' you need to do
To be an undercover cowgirl
The undercover cowboy only wants to know
How to get under the cover with you

Now he's well schooled in the bar stool pickup line
He's a dance hall king with one thing on his mind
Undercover cowboy

Undercover cowboy
Workin' undercovers all over town
Just another plowboy
Tryin' to cover a lot of ground
Undercover cowboy
He'll tell ya everythin' you need to do
To be an undercover cowgirl
The undercover cowboy only wants to know
How to get under the cover with you

Undercover cowboy, undercover cowboy
Undercover cowboy, undercover cowboy
Undercover cowboy

Go It Alone Lyrics – Clint Black

Here we are again my old friend
We rode to the ends of the earth and back again
We've seen all and done all that there is to do
Now you're ridin' the sky with the others we knew
Ridin' free like the drifer you are
With your back to the wind

But I have seen you and me with our backs to the wall
We have fought to be free from both sides of the law
Sometimes we're forgiven the chances we take
Most times we're just bending the rules when they break
But this is one ride just you alone have to make
Win, lose or draw

You go it alone my old friend
We could never know how just how it would end
We're just flesh and bone, we break and we bend
It's chiseled in stone, we say our amen
And you go it alone

There once was a time when we knew the trails
Now ahead or behind are fences and rails
We've outlived the lifetime and ran out of room
But every hand finally throws up his hat to the moon
Now the fiddler's just played his last tune
And told his last tale

He said, you go it alone my old friend
We could never know how just how it would end
We're just flesh and bone, we break and we bend
Now it's chiseled in stone, we've said our amen
And you go it alone

You go it alone, you go it alone

Too Much Rock Lyrics – Clint Black

The sun's gonna shine tomorrow
But I'll be lookin' for the rain
Wells run dry, there's only dirt to turn
If things go broke tomorrow
But it goes against my grain
And I'm plowin' down a row of no return

There's just too much rock in this country
Too many lessons to learn
'Til that harvest moon smiles down on me
There's just too many stones to overturn

Now I'm gonna put this hoe down
And pick up my guitar
Plant some seeds down on Music Row
But it seems that old town is a lot like on the farm
I keep plantin', nothin' ever seems to grow

There's just too much rock in this country
Too many lessons to learn
'Til that harvest moon smiles down on me
There's just too many stones to overturn

Now I've heard it said to make a livin' like that
Will take more than flesh and bone
As a matter of fact to wear that hat
You're gonna plow through a world of stone

There's just too many lessons to learn
'Til that harvest moon smiles down on me
There's just too many stones to overturn

Too many stones to overturn

A Big One Lyrics – Clint Black

Look around any old crowded bar
You'll see a million reason, a million scars
You can hear what the body language has to say
A good libation in celebration, a dedication in desperation
If you wanna know why I'm here, let me count the ways

I only need one good reason to keep on drinkin'
So I'll have one more, I'm not done
Well, I'm toast, I'll toast every little thing around
Until the memories are all gone
I can't think of one thing wrong
With drinkin' and thinkin' of the one good reason I have
And it's a big one

I keep pourin' it in, I don't think it shows
There's a hole in my heart where all the whiskey goes
I try fillin' it up but it just seems to go right through
Drink as I may, no matter what I do
Never seem to need a reason number two
I count it all on one finger
It's always pointin' right at you

Now let me hear you drinkers

I only need one good reason to keep on drinkin'
So I have one more, I'm not done
I'll be non stop, bottoms up, callin' for another round
Until the memories are all gone
I can't think of one thing wrong
With drinkin' and thinkin' of the one good reason I have
And it's a big one

Now there's all kinds of reasons, good and bad
There's about twenty-seven that my brother had
I'd a had 'em all rather than the one I have
I wouldn't be here countin' in the aftermath

But I need only one good reason to keep on drinkin'
So I have one more, I'm just drinkin'
And thinkin' of one good reason I have
And it's a big one

It's a big one, I'll tell ya, it's a big one
Oh, brother, it's a big one

I Don't Wanna Tell You Lyrics – Clint Black

I don't wanna tell you
You don't have a place in my heart
I don't like bein' the only one
That knows there's somethin' tearin' us a part
I can't write a goodbye letter
Loving eyes won't read between the lines
I don't wanna tell you
There's just no other way that I can find

I don't wanna tell you
But it seems the only way to make this clear
And I don't wanna tell you
So I'll just stop and have another beer
'Cause when I get home
I don't want my conscience weighin' on my mind
I don't wanna tell you
There's just no other way that I can find

For so long I've tried to show you
Hopin' you'd just see that somethin's wrong
The more that I let go of you
The more I feel you just keep hangin' on
So long I've known it's over
Always wishin' you could read my mind
I don't wanna tell you
There's just no other way that I can find

I don't wanna tell you
But it seems the only way to make this clear
I don't wanna tell you
So I'll just stop and have another beer
'Cause when I get home
I don't want my conscience weighin' on my mind
I don't wanna tell you
There's just no other way that I can find

Back Home In Heaven Lyrics – Clint Black

There's a burnin' silver lining, lighting up the sky
Ahead of someone's promise, the storm is passing by
I know I can't be with you, you're like a distant star
Shining in the great unknown, but I know where you are

You're the guiding light that always gets me through
But it's the longest road that leads me back to you
My body's bound to waunder but my heart will always be
Back home in heaven where my angel waits for me

I can feel the earth beneath my feet
And sunlight on my face
This world can bring me to my knees
And keep me in my place
Where I'm always lookin' up to you
Just like I've always done
Asking you my questions
And the answers always come

You live on here in your carefully planted seeds
That have grown to give me everything I need
My body's bound to waunder but my heart will always be
Back home in heaven where my angel waits for me

You're the guiding light that always gets me through
But it's the longest road that leads me back to you
My body's bound to waunder but my heart will always be
Back home in heaven where my angel waits for me
Back home in heaven where my angel waits for me

Thinkin' Of You Lyrics – Clint Black

I've been thinkin' of ya
And my heart aches 'til I can't clear my head
And my thoughts won't rise above ya
And I've had all I can take
There's no more heart to break
Though I always get it wrong
Gonna have to sing along
With the familiar drinkin' song

Whiskey bottle with some melody
Just rolls of the tongue for me, I know 'em all
When I mix gin and misery
I know I'll be the last to see me when I fall

So I'm thinkin' of ya but I don't feel the pain
The song went to my head where I can't forget to love ya
And I'll probably go insane about that old refrain
Though my heart is not that strong
It keeps beating right along
With the familiar drinkin' song

Whiskey bottle with some melody
Just rolls of the tongue for me, I know 'em all
When I mix gin and misery
I know I'll be the last to see me when I fall

Whiskey bottle with some melody
Just rolls of the tongue for me, I know 'em all
When I mix gin and misery
I know I'll be the last to see me when I fall
And I have to crawl

Still I'm thinkin' of ya
And my heart aches, I can't clear my head
And my thoughts won't rise above ya
And I've had all I can take
There's no more heart to break
Though I always get it wrong
Gonna have to sing along
With the familiar drinkin' song

Longnecks And Rednecks Lyrics – Clint Black

She sees him flag down the waitress
A picture of greeting and class
She brings him his beer in a bottle
Then he goes and pours it in a glass

Longnecks ain't nothin' without rednecks
It takes more than a cowboy hat to really make them cool
And rednecks ain't nothin' without longnecks
That's why we all feel ten feet tall sittin' on a stool

Now a bottle is what drinkin' was made for
It doesn't take some suds to make that clear
You won't find Martinis on the dance floor
But I can do the two-step drinkin' beer

Longnecks ain't nothin' without rednecks
It takes more than some cowboy boots to really make them cool
And rednecks ain't nothin' without longnecks
That's why we all feel ten feet tall sittin' on a stool

Pour anything you want into a coctail
Those highbrow drinks don't show how smart you are
It's not that kinda class that made Budweiser
It's the higher education at the bar

Longnecks ain't nothin' without rednecks
It takes more than the honky tonk to really make them cool
And rednecks ain't nothin' without longnecks
That's why we all feel ten feet tall sittin' on a stool

Yeah, that's why we all feel ten feet tall sittin' on a stool

"Spend My Time" (2004)

We All Fall Down Lyrics – Clint Black

I oughta know the look in another's eyes
When there's something on their mind
I think I saw that look in a lover's eyes
They were looking into mine
Like we both had found the one we want
But found the one we wanted just quit trying

So we tell ourselves that what we found
Is what we meant to find
That's what we tell ourselves
You won't believe the things
A heart could tell a mind
Somehow we sell ourselves on love
I just don't think
I'll believe my heart this time

I oughta know the language well
I've heard me tell myself these things before
I finally made my mind up
My heart tells me to look for something more
Determined not to wind up wondering
Was she the one
Well, you never can be sure

So we tell ourselves that what we found
Is what we meant to find
That's what we tell ourselves
You won't believe the things
A heart could tell a mind
Somehow we sell ourselves on love
I just don't think
I'll believe my heart this time

So we tell ourselves
That what we found is what we meant to find
That's what we tell ourselves
You won't believe the things
A heart could tell a mind
Somehow we sell ourselves on love
I just don't think
I'll believe my heart this time

My Imagination Lyrics – Clint Black

Standing there with her arms around no one
No one who'd die for her right where he stands
Looking around like she's looking for someone
Looking like she's got time on her hands
Funny how much you can see in someone
Across the room who you don't even know
Telling you things she would tell to no one
Taking you places she's wanted to go

Like a walk in the rain, a place in the sun
With a lifetime of love that has only begun
Doing all of the things only lovers can do
My imagination is running away with you

Walking away and I'm walking beside her
Into forever here in my mind
Deraming a dream that we're dreaming together
Finding the things only lovers can find

Like a walk on the moon, a dance in the stars
With a love light that finds us wherever we are
And our own happy ending will always come true
My imagination is running away with you

As fast as I can running straight to your heart
Where the fantasy ends and reality starts
'Til I stop believing that dreaming is all I can do
And the fantasy might even come true
My imagination, it's only my imagination running away with you

She's Leavin' Lyrics – Clint Black

When I think about the time that I sat crying in my beer
Jukebox pounding misery from ear to ear
I know I'd tell myself I'm better off without you here
But I'm looking for beginnings when the end is always near.

She's leavin' in the morning sing a sad song for me
Keeping me in the dark don't know how long it will be
But I've heard that tune before she says she's gotta be free
But I know that's not true and that's what's bothering me.

Anywhere you look it's everywhere and all around
It's the blues they keep singing lord
And it's bound to get you down
But the melody can move you in a way to ease the pain
And it won't be long before you're on your feet again
I'd be alright if she'd just make up her mind
I don't know why but I forgive her, time after time...

Everything I Need Lyrics – Clint Black

Everything I need all depends on you
Everything I want is everything you do
It's been handed down through time
It's really nothing new
Boy meets girl, I meet you
A love song that could never be untrue.

[Chorus:]
All I need is everyting I want
It's a fundamental greed
All I need is everything you flaunt
That's a language I can read
All I need is everything I want
And that makes you everything I need.

Everything I need is on my one-track mind
Everything I want is where I draw the line
I'll take all you've got to give
Spend up all your precious time
You can't undo the ties that bind
Or hide the moon that needs the sun to shine.

[Chorus:]
All I need is everyting I want
It's a fundamental greed
All I need is everything you flaunt
That's a language I can read
All I need is everything I want
And that makes you everything I need.

Everything I need can't get it on TV
Everything I need is absolutely free
Everything I need is pure biology
That will bring me to my bended knee
My craving you will sweetly torture me.

[Chorus:]
All I need is everyting I want
It's a fundamental greed
All I need is everything you flaunt
That's a language I can read
All I need is everything I want
And that makes you everything I need...

Spend My Time Lyrics – Clint Black

How can we know how far the long way can be
Looking from where we are it never seemed that long to me
I've many miles behind me, maybe not so much ahead
It seems I made good time with the directions I misread.

So I'm gonna spend my time like it's going out of style
I'm moving the bottom line farther than a country mile
I still have hills to climb before I hit that wall
No matter how much time I buy I could never spend it all.

Funny thing that time, we're always running out
I'm always losing mine, there's not enough of it about
And though it's always here it will always come and go
The days become the years that'll be gone before you know.

So I'm gonna spend my time like it's going out of style
I'm moving the bottom line better than a country mile
I still have hills to climb before I hit that wall.

I won't go quietly into that dark night
There'll be no more buring daylight
I'll be living in every moment that I'm in.

Oh, I'm gonna spend my time like it's going out of style
I'll only use what's mine, I've been saving for awhile
I still have hills to climb before I hit that wall
No matter how much time I buy I could never spend it all.

No matter how much time I buy I could never spend it all...

What Ever Happened Lyrics – Clint Black

Snow up on the mountains
Sun layn' low across the clouded sky
I've been feeding this fire for so long
The flame is gone
I could second guess the storm
Tell my heart to leave the warm
But I'll just stay inside
There's no way that I'll take any chances of my own
What if I get it wrong
Another season come and gone
Robin hardly sang her song
For too few summer skies
All the tourists barely even said goodbye
Back again
Now there's lovers all around
The sun might as well lay down
I don't need the light
It won't be my eyes
That tell me if they found
Fair weather friends

What ever happened to the change of seasons
What ever happened to all my reasons
To open up my heart and let it be
What ever happened to falling in love
What ever happened to me

Sun up on the mountains
Somebody said it happened yesterday
But I guess I can't remember back that far
Was not all there
But the sky was probably blue
Doesn't matter when to view
Depends on where you are
What kind of heart you might be looking through
Oh and if you care, tell me

What ever happened to the change of seasons
What ever happened to all my reasons
To open up my heart and let it be
What ever happened to falling in love
What ever happened to me eeee

What ever happened to the change of seasons
What ever happened to all my reasons
To open up my heart and let it be
What ever happened to falling in love

What ever happened to the change of seasons
What ever happened to aaall my reasons
Oooh just let it be
What ever happened to falling in love
What ever happened to me

Does anyone remember me?
What ever happened to falling in love
What ever happened to me

A Mind To Lyrics – Clint Black

Now, I'm not talking tough,
Telling the truth ought to be enough
I've had my share on the darker side
Sitting and starring at a TV screen,
Racking my brain over all the things.

If I'd just been there
I could have tried things to do
I can't help but think of more
I could fill my life wothout ever leaving home
I could see the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World
And even build a few more of my own. (If I had a mind to.)

Quit my job never mind the pay,
Maybe go figure out the CIA
Chase the paper and pass the bar,
Show Iacocca how to build a car
Jump up and run a three minute mile,
Sit around and watch my baby smile
That's what I might do , if I had a mind to.

No, I don't wanna blow my horn,
No telling how many souls I've worn
And what kind of shoes, when I had shoes
I'm still losing a bridge or two,
But the troubled water's gonna run on through
You can't always win, but you can always lose
But I don't turn my head for things that pass me by
And I'm gonna have a look around
I could gather all the diamonds in the sky
Hold every one and never leave the ground,
If I had a mind to.

Fly through the eye of a hurricane,
Freeze my body like David Blaine
Be the first to find life on Mars,
Go up and sell a few candy bars
Climb a rainbow and kiss the sun,
Walk on the moon when the day is done
That's what I might do, If I had a mind to.

Somewhere someone's doing everything I've said
I don't have to do anything, I could do it in my head
If I had mind to.

Sail away and be Jacques Cousteau,
Or the Crocodile hunter on a TV show
Be the king of the one night stand,
Front the Coral Reefer Band
Ski Colorado where there ain't no snow,
Plant a tree and watch it grow
That what I might do.

Go out and buy me a suit and tie,
Go to work everyday and be a regular guy
Smoking big cigars all day,
Be the President of the USA
Get a tattoo and bleach my hair,
Open a window and breathe the air
That's what I might do, if I had a mind to...

Just Like You And Me Lyrics – Clint Black

How many lovers counted all the stars in the sky?
Thanking each and every one for their one and only one
How many saw the heavens there in each other's eyes?
Knowing they were meant to be
Just like you and me

It's so hard to imagine anyone loved like this before
Through the ages all the poets said it's true
That a heart could surely die without the love its living for
I know every part of my heart is living for you

How many loves never see the world going by?
All the days seem to float, the seasons come and go
How many grow together never really needing to try?
It's something they already know
As if it happened long ago

It's so hard to imagine anyone loved like this before
Once in a lifetime's here and now
If they ever find what we have the whole world will be sure
If they ever get it perfect, it's you and I that showed em how

There's no denying no one ever loved like this before
It's something surely anyone can see
Though there may have been the perfect love so many times before
Who knew they'd always be together
Just like you and me

How many saw the heavens there in each other's eyes?
Knowing they were meant to be
Just like you and me

The Boogie Man Lyrics – Clint Black

Next to Lousiana on the Texas side,
There's a little country joint where they let it ride.
There's a boogie woogie man on the piano,
An' all the backwoods boppers shoutin': "Go cat, go."

They've never been afraid of the Boogie Man.
Nothin' makes you feel better than the boogie woogie can.
So don't you be afraid of the Boogie Man:
He'll take you down to New Orleans
Where that rhythm all began.
So don't you,
Don't you be afraid of the Boogie Man.

Grandpa's in the corner in his fishing clothes,
Reelin' to the rhythm everywhere it goes.
All the boogie woogie babies tearing up the floor.
When they get a little bit, they want a little more.

They've never been afraid of the Boogie Man.
Nothin' makes you feel better than the boogie woogie can.
So don't you be afraid of the Boogie Man:
He'll take you down to New Orleans
Where that rhythm all began.
So don't you,
Don't you be afraid of the Boogie Man.

[Instrumental]

In a red El Dorado, at the break of day,
That Boogie Woogie man'll be slipping away.
Although you're never gonna know it when he's out of sight,
He'll shut a juke box down again tomorrow night.

He's never been afraid of the Boogie Man.
Nothin' makes you feel better than the boogie woogie can.
So don't you be afraid of the Boogie Man:
He'll take you down to New Orleans
Where that rhythm all began.
It works for me, it'll work for you,
He'll have you doin' things that you didn't know you knew.
So don't you,
Don't you be afraid.
No, don't ya,
Don't you be afraid of the Boogie Man, no...

A Lover's Clown Lyrics – Clint Black

Tiny peices of my heart
Like confetti everywhere
Hidden sorrows in the dark
You can feel it in the air
The spotlight finds me
I can no longer hide my frown
Say hello to a lover's clown

Distorted mirror images
Turn the good to bad
If that's not the way it is
Why am I so sad?
Strangers laughter is the only sound
Silence from a lover's clown

Girl that's me everybody's laughing at
With a big red nose and the tears and the silly act
Comedy, tragedy, reality
It all plays the same
If you don't want me

Tumbling from the high wire
Without a net
You're saying I'll stop falling for you
But I haven't yet
The spotlight dims and the bigtop's coming down
Curtains o'er the lover's clown

Girl, that's me everybodies laughing at
With a big red nose and the tears and the silly act
Comedy, tragedy, reality
It all plays the same
If you don't want me

Tiny peices of my heart
Scattered everywhere
Like a fool I played my part
But you were never really there
A new day dawns and the bigtop's leaving town
You can say goodbye to a lover's clown
Say goodbye

"D'Lectrified" (1999)

Bob Away My Blues Lyrics – Clint Black

Well, I'm goin' down to the river
I've got a canepole in my hand
I've got my redworms
In a Maxwell house coffee can.

I'm gonna sit under a shade tree
On a riverbank where its cool
I'm gonna close my eyes and dream
And let that cork bob away my blues.

Well, I wake up every mornin'
I pick peaches all day
And on Saturday night we'll have a dance or two
We might waller in the hay.

Now the only thing that ever whipped my pa
Was this bad dude called old age
And his last years was his best years
And this is what he had to say.

He siad, boy I've worked this dirt all my life
But things ain't been good for awhile
Why don't you move to the city, make a little money
You might be the first one in the family
Ever to die with a smile.

Well, I took his advice, things goin' well
But my friends are far and few
But whoever said a city boy
Can't have the the country blues?

Whoever said a city boy
Can't have the the country blues?

Whoever said a city boy
Can't have the the country blues?

Well, honey they ain't talked to me and you...

Are You Sure Waylon Done It This Way Lyrics – Clint Black (duet with Waylon Jennings)

Lord, it's the same old thing
Fiddle and guitar
Where do we take it from here?
Rhinestone suits new shiny car
Well, It's been the same way for years
It's bound to change.

Somebody told me when I came to Nashville
"Son you finally got it made"
Ole Waylon made it here and we're all sure that you will
But I don't think Waylon done it this way
No, I don't think Waylon done it this way.

[Instrumental]

Ten years on the road making one night stands
Speeding my young life away
Tell me one more time just so's I'll understand
Are you sure Waylon done it this way?
Did ole Waylon done it this way?

[Instrumental]

I've seen the world with an eight piece band
Looking at the back side of me
Singing my songs one of his now and then
But I don't think Waylon done it this way
No,I don't think Waylon done it this way.

[Instrumental]

Woke up this morning, it was drizzin' rain
Around the curve come a long black train
Heard somebody yodel and a hobo moan
Jimmy he's dead he's been a long time gone.

Yeah
(Woop,woop,woop)...

Hand In The Fire Lyrics – Clint Black

I haven't been there, I haven't done that
I never been one to know where it's at
I've been around and I've seen a few things
I don't know what a lot of it means
The truth'll never ring clear as a bell, but I...
Don't believe that you never can tell
Most things I don't have a clue
But I can tell by lookin' I know all about you.

[Chorus:]
You don't have to put your hand in the fire
To know your little fingers are gonna get burned
You don't have to be standing on the moon
To know your little planet is gonna get turned
You don't have to take a walk in the sea
To know it gets a little deep and it's really not blue
I don't have to have my arms all around you
To know I wanna hold you and to know that I love you.

I've never been one to go to extremes
I see 'em coming and I get in between
Never ahead and never behind
I figure everything'll happen in time
And just in time it's happening now
It's not up to either one of us to ever know how
With both eyes closed I could easily see
It's happening to you and it's gonna be me.

[Chorus:]
You don't have to put your hand in the fire
To know your little fingers are gonna get burned
You don't have to be standing on the moon
To know your little planet is gonna get turned
You don't have to take a walk in the sea
To know it gets a little deep and it's really not blue
I don't have to have my arms all around you
To know I wanna hold you and to know that I love you.

You don't have to put your hand in the fire.

You don't have to be standing on the moon
No. No, No No.

Now, You don't have to take a walk in the sea
To know it gets a little deep and it's really not blue
Now, I don't have to have my arms all around you
To know I wanna hold you and to know that I love you.

You don't have to put your hand in the fire
No, not to feel the heat, no
You don't have to be standing on the moon
Not to know that I took the time to see
You don't have to take a walk in the sea
It's gettin' deep, I know it's gettin' deep now.

You don't have to put your hand in the fire
Ahh, not to feel the heat, no
You don't have to be walkin' on the moon
Walkin' on the moon, walkin' on the moon
I don't have to have my arms all around you
To know I wanna hold you and to know that I love you.

Yes, I do, love you...

Outside Intro (To Galaxy Song) Lyrics – Clint Black (feat. Eric Idle)

When ya feeling inside out and insecure.
hmm hmm hmm
When life keeps getting you down.
When all lifes daily worries, hurry through your head.
You don't want to even get up.
You just ly around in bed.

When ya feel like ya just can't take it anymore
I can't take it.
And you wonder what on Earth it is all for.
Your love lifes on a war zone, your Tv's on the blink
It's enough to drive a drinking man,
To stop and take a think...

Galaxy Song Lyrics – Clint Black

Just remember that you standing
On a planet that's evolving,
Revolving at 900 miles an hour.
It's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.
The Sun and you and me
And all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day.
In an outer spiral orb, at 40,000 miles an hour,
Of the Galaxy we call the Milky Way.

Our Galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
It's a 100,000 light years side to side
It bulges in the middle 16,000 light years thick,
But out by us it's just 3,000 light years wide.
We're 30,000 light years from galactic central point.
We go round every 200,000,000 years.
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding Universe.

[Instrumental]

Our Universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whiz
As fast as it can go, the speed of light you know, 12,000,000 miles a minute,
And that's the fastest speed there is!
So, remember when you're feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly unlikely is your birth.
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause I'm afraid that we've been cheated here on Earth.

When I Said I Do Lyrics – Clint Black (duet with Lisa Hartman Black)

These times are trouble
And these times are good
There always gonna be
They rise and they fall
We take them all the way that we should
Together you and me
Forsaking them all

Deep in the night
And by the light of day
It always looks the same
True love always does
Here by your side or a million miles away
Nothin' is ever gonna change the way I feel
The way it is, is the way that it was

[Chorus:]
When I said I do, I meant that I will
Til' the end of all time
Be faithful and true, devoted to you
That's what I had in mind, when I said I do

Well this whole world keeps changin'
And the world stays the same
For all who came before
And it goes hand in hand

Only you and I can undo
All that we became
That makes us so much more (so much more)
Than a woman and a man

After everything
That comes and goes around
Has only passed us by
Here alone in our dreams

I know there's a lonely heart
In every lost and found
But forever you and I will be the ones
Who found out what forever means

[Chorus]

Truer than true
You know that I'll always be there for you

That's what I had in mind
That's what I had in mind

[Together:]
When I said I do

Been There Lyrics – Clint Black (duet with Steve Wariner)

Did you ever wake up in the middle of the night
And wonder where you were
You need the one and only that can hold you tight
And you reach for her, but she's not with you
You just wish this trip would end
You know I've been there, I don't wanna go back again

Did you ever wake up in the middle of the day
And wonder who you are
You suddenly discover there's a price you pay
For gettin' this far, and it's the part of you
You really don't have to spend
You know I've been there, and I don't wanna go back again

There's so many moments that I've left incomplete
Those are the moments that I'm not gonna repeat, no

Did you ever wake up in the middle of a dream
That didn't come true
You think you're gotta give up on makin' that scene
And seeing it through, you feel like breaking
When you really just need to bend
You know I've been there, and I'll never go back again

There's so many moments that I've left incomplete
Those are the moments that I'm not gonna repeat, no

Dixie Lullaby Lyrics – Clint Black (duet with Bruce Hornsby)

Gather round me people, got a song to sing
About that sweet magnolia thyme
Black-eyed Susan made some catfish stew
And papa brought some homemade wine.

All you southern children like to rock'n roll
The TV mamas tell you why
They got it on the boat from Africa
It's that Dixie Lullaby.

Well, Blind Willie Time he had a dime shoe shine
Stand down on Beale Street
And Willie would stop and just to say hello
All the shoes he'd meet.

Why are you so happy said the clean white buck
You got no reason to be happy Mr Time
And Willie would stop and just pop his rag
And sing a Dixie Lullaby.

[Instrumental]

So now you know the story of my southern home
With a honeysuckle wine
And anytime you think that you might come yourself
You ought to keep this thought in mind.

All you easy riders better watch you step
And if you're walkin' down below the line
That Louisiana man is gonna get you yet
With his Dixie Lullaby.
He's got a Dixie Lullaby.
He's got a Dixie Lullaby...

Where Your Love Won't Go Lyrics – Clint Black

It's a lonesome avenue, I'm barely livin' on
With a broken heart that's dyin' over you.
I've done all that I can do to try and make you love me too
Tell me where did I go wrong?

Girl, I've had enough of givin' you my love
When you won't give it back, I know
You don't love me, I'm on a one way street
Where your love won't go.

[Instrumental]

I won't cross the burnin' bridges you left behind
Though I've shed the tears to put those fires out
If I didn't do me part from the bottom of my heart
Then I don't know what love is all about.

Girl, I've had enough of givin' you my love
When you won't give it back, I know
You don't love me, I'm on a one way street
Where your love won't go.

Well, you gave me all the signs
Though it never crossed my mind
You would hurt me more than I could know
You don't love me, I'm on a one-way street
Where your love won't go...

[Instrumental to fade]

Love She Can't Live Without Lyrics – Clint Black

He gives her attention, he's constantly, carefully planting the seeds
The only thing missing, is really the only thing she needs
And he can't give that to her and she can't find it with him
So she'll have to find her way out of love she's not really in

[Chorus]
She can live with what goes with leavin
She knows it's the only way
Though it kills her to give up believin
She can't live with herself if she stays
She could settle for what she'd be feelin
If she gave in and worked this one out
She doesn't want the kind of love she can live with
She wants the kind of love she can't live without

She looks in the mirror and sees all the sadness in her eyes
It's never been clearer what he's askin her to sacrifice
But she can't be his forever, she can't even be his for now
She'll have to be kind to them both and let go of him somehow

[Chorus]
She can live with what goes with leavin
She knows it's the only way
Though it kills her to give up believin
She can't live with herself if she stays
She could settle for what she'd be feelin
If she gave in and worked this one out
She doesn't want the kind of love she can live with
She wants the kind of love she can't live without

And the hardest part is she loves him
But she doesn't want the kind of love she can live with
She wants the kind of love she can't live without

Burn One Down Lyrics – Clint Black

I guess you're off to have your fun
Another ending just begun
And I know what I don't see Really shouldn't bother me
So go and have yourself a ball
You'll be at no one's beck and call
And with that fire in your eyes
Another lover's moon will rise
And someone else will take the fall
And that's just the way you are,
I've known all along
Some candles always burn even when the night is gone
But the strongest of flames won't burn eternally
When you find another friend who'll light your candle up again

You can burn one down for me
So you don't matter anymore
I'll convince myself, I'm sure As if I give a damn
That's just the way I am
So go on and pour yourself some wine
With who'll ever spend your time
'Cause anyone can see you won't be crying over me
And you never were that kind

[Chorus]

Who I Use To Be Lyrics – Clint Black

The memories and emotions
That I've been through
Are things I can't unlearn
But I won't go on standing on the bridges
You've tried so hard to burn.

I can't put those fires out
And let somebody in
If everything my life's about
Is who we might've been
Till we forget the love we lost
We won't remember how to love again.

[Chorus:]
That's who I used to be
Holding onto nothing
Giving everything I used to be
To belong to someone
That I know is who
I used to see when I looked at you
You were never who I used to see
That's who I use to be,
And I'm not who I used to be

Coming to my senses now
I'm feeling things I thought I couldn't feel
I don't take for granted if it feels like love
It must not be real

I still find myself out on
Some bridges now and then
I'm stuck out in the middle
Trying to reach the other end
But I'm through holding back the flames
To show somebody how to love, again

[Chorus:]
That's who I use to be
Holding onto nothing
Giving everything I use to be
To belong to someone
That I know is who
I use to see when I looked at you
You were never who I use to see
That's who I use to be,
And I'm not who I use to be.

That's who I use to be,
And I'm not who I use to be...

Harmony Lyrics – Clint Black (duet with Kenny Loggins)

With the rivers running to the sky
To rain across the land
Our children's children's sands of time
Are slipping through our hands.

Take heed in what's become of Eden
You and me, from seed to seed
Just how does your garden grow?
It's likely only Heaven knows.

Harmony -- From the very start
Weren't we changing it?
Don't we all agree, that in every part
We're more than rearranging harmony.

Do we move the mountains that we climb
Just because we're here?
Can we show the forests to the blind
To see the trees we clear?

And if Mother Nature holds her ground
And our seeds are still around
Will we watch our garden grow
To something only Heaven knows?

Harmony -- We're the only one's
Who can't live in it
Everything and everyone
Can get along in every way in harmony.

Harmony -- From the very start
Weren't we changing it?
Dont we all agree that in every part
We're more than rearranging harmony.

[Chorus:]
I believe it's gonna be
When everybody here can sing along
Singin' in harmony
Stand on up, say the word
Together, all of our voices can be heard
Everybody knows the key
To livin' in harmony.

Take heed in what's become of Eden
You and me, from seed to seed
Just how does your garden grow?
It's likely only Heaven knows.

Harmony -- We all just have to believe
Don't we all agree, that in every part
We're more than rearranging harmony.

[Chorus:]
I believe it's gonna be
When everybody here can sing along
Singin' in harmony
(Stand on up, I believe)
I believe in harmony
I believe
(Ooo, I believe, everybody knows)
Say the word, harmony (Stand on up)
I know we can do it now
I believe, I believe in harmony
Yeah, harmony
Everybody knows the key
To livin' in harmony...

No Time To Kill Lyrics – Clint Black

There's no time to kill between the cradle and the grave.
Father Time still takes a toll on every minute that you save.
Legal tenders never gonna change the number of your days.
The highest cost of livin is dying, that's one everybody pays.
So have it spent before you get the bill, there's no time to kill.

If we'd known ten years ago today would be ten years from now
Would we spend tomorrows yesterdays and make it last somehow
Or lead the cheers in someone else's game and never learn to play
And see the rules of thumb are all the same that measure every day.
The grass is green on both sides of the hill, there's no time to kill.

No time to kill, even I've said it and probably always will
But I can look ahead and see that time ain't standin' still.
No time to kill but time to change the kind of hurry I've been in
And quit this work and worry looking back at where I've been.
If you don't look ahead nobody will, there's no time to kill.

If we had an hour glass to watch each one go by
Or a bell to mark each one to pass, we'd see just how they fly.
Would we escalate the value to be worth its weight in gold
Or would we never know the fortunes that we had til we grow old.
And do we just keep killin time until there's no time to kill.

No time to kill, even I've said it and probably always will
But I can look ahead and see that time ain't standin still.
No time to kill but time to change the kind of hurry I've been in
And quit this work and worry lookin back at where I've been.
If you don't look ahead nobody will, there's no time to kill.

No time to kill, even I've said it and probably always will
But I can look ahead and see that time ain't standin still.
No time to kill but time to change the kind of hurry I've been in
And quit this work and worry lookin back at where I've been.
If you don't look ahead nobody will, there's no time to kill.

No time to kill
No time to kill

"Nothin' But The Taillights" (1997)

Nothin' But The Taillights Lyrics – Clint Black

Blue Kentucky highway, headin' for the line
She hadn't said a word all night,
But the wheels are turnin' in her mind
Now I was ridin' shotgun,
And I knew things had gone awry
Just as soon as she dropped me off At the side of the road
And she let that gravel fly

[CHORUS]
Now I'm walkin' in the moonlight, Seein' nothin' but the taillights
And that's a pair of taillights I may never see again
She hit me with the left and right,
Showin' me nothin' but the taillights
And that's about as lonely As the highway's ever been
Back here with my thumb out in the wind

Was it somethin' that I did to her,
Or the things I never said
I wonder if the way we were was only in my head
Now if I even make it back to town
Before the sun comes up
I'm gonna hit every parking spot around
'Til I find that pick-up truck

[CHORUS]
Now I'm talkin' in the moonlight
Seein' nothin' but the taillights
And that's a pair of taillights I may never see again
She hit me with the left and right
Showin' me nothin' but the taillights
And that's about as lonely As a highway's ever been
Stuck here with my thumb out in the wind

Well I'll bet right now she's laughin'
At how she brought me to my knees
But she won't be laughin' half as loud
When she gives me back my keys

[CHORUS]
She'll be walkin' in the moonlight,
Seein' nothin' but the taillights
And that's a pair of taillights She won't ever see again
She hit me with a left and right
And with nothin' but the taillights
And I know that's about as lonely As a highway's ever been
Back here with my thumb out in the wind

There she goes,
here I come

That Something In My Life Lyrics – Clint Black

The older you get the more you stand to lose
You can bet that we'll all have our turn
And if I lost everything right down to my shoes
As long as you love me I won't be concerned

[Chorus]
There's one thing in life that I can't replace
It's written in ways even time can't erase
Some things really are too good to be true
That something in my life is you

I spent my time on money and things
That won't do a heart any good
With nothing to gain but the space that it brings
It had always been empty til I understood

[Repeat Chorus]

One thing's for certain and without a doubt
Your love is something I can't live without
Some things really are too good to be true
That something in my life
One thing in my life
That something in my life is you

Our Kind Of Love Lyrics – Clint Black

Long ago with a younger partner
Always in love but a love for sure
Their hearts were lost out in the shuffle
Of a hook and wings on a sawdust floor.

Now they hold their own out on the liners
They're always prime for something slow
And you won't find them changin' partners
Love will keep in step keepin' up with a country set
It's our kind of love I'll bet
They're together everywhere they go.

Now they're on in years and they don't need a reason
All the lights are on for the same old thing
When they call Let's dance, their song will still be playin'
Til' the end of time their love'll be in full swing.

And they hold their own out on the liners
They're always prime for something slow
And you won't find them changin' partners
Love will keep in step keepin' up with a country set
It's our kind of love I'll bet
They're together everywhere they go.

Love will keep in step keepin' up with a country set
It's our kind of love I'll bet
They're together everywhere they go
It's our kind of love
I'll bet they're together everywhere they go.

[Instrumental to fade]

Loosen Up My Strings Lyrics – Clint Black

No one's gonna jerk me around
When I get my feet on the ground
I'm gonna hit it runnin
Gonna call it a day
See, a little bit of tension Goes a long, long way
The boss man has got mine in a sling
But I'll be swingin when I loosen up my strings

Every night when the sun goes down
You won't find me hangin around
I'm in loco-motion like a rock out on roll
I'm nobody's puppet I'm out of control
The boss man has got mine in a sling
But I'll be swingin when I loosen up my...

Now, when it comes to getting down
And I'm always keepin track
I don't need some yo-yo takin up my slack
The boss man has got mine in a sling
But I'll be swingin when I loosen up my strings
Yeah, he'll have a line on me til my fat lady sings
But I'll be swingin while I loosen up my strings
Yeah, we'll all be swingin while I loosen up my strings
Hey, we'll all be swingin when I loosen up my strings

Still Holding On Lyrics – Clint Black

There's something out there left for you
But it's not me
We've reached a point of no return
It's only right to set you free

I know I have to turn away
But there's nowhere for my love to go
And there won't come a day
When I won't honor what we've had

But I'll go on with my life
We can even say goodbye for now if
If that's what we have to do
Here in my heart
Even when my arms are empty
Darling, I'm still holding onto you

We can't deny that this one's out of our control
Stronger than the both of us
And bound to take its toll

I can stand the test of time
And as far as I can see
There are no walls that we can't climb
Standing between you and me

But I'll go on with my life
We can even say goodbye for now if
If that's what we have to do
Here in my heart
Even when my arms are empty
Darling, I'm still holding onto you

There's a place you'll always be
No matter where you are you're here with me
When the world is turning upside down
Together we will stand our ground

We can even say goodbye for now if
If that's what we have to do
Here in my heart
Even when my arms are empty
Darling, I'm still holding onto you

I'm still holding onto you
I'm still holding onto you
When I'm gone
When I'm gone, I'm holding on

Something That We Do Lyrics – Clint Black

I remember well the day we wed
I can see that picture in my head
I still believe the words we said
Forever will ring true

Love is certain, Love is kind
Love is yours and love is mine
But it isn't something that we find
It's something that we do

It's holding tight, It's lettin go
It's flying high and laying low
It lets your strongest feelings show
And your weakness too

It's a little and a lot to ask
An endless and a welcome task
Love isn't something that we have
It's something that we do

We help to make each other all that we can be
Though we can find our strength and inspiration independently
The way we work together is what sets our love apart
So closely that we can't tell where I end and where you start

It gives me heart remembering how
We started with a simple vow
There's so much to look back on now
And still it feels brand new
We're on a road that has no end
And each day we begin again
Love's not just something that we're in
It's something that we do

We help to make each other all that we can be
Though we can find our strength and inspiration independently
The way we work together is what sets our love apart
So closely that we can't tell where I end and where you start

Love is wide, Love is long
Love is deep and Love is strong
Love is why I love this song
And I hope you love it too

I remember well the day we wed
I can see that picture in my head
Love isn't just those words we said
It's something that we do

There's no request
Too big or small
We give ourselves
We give our all
Love isn't some place that we fall...
It's something that we do

The Shoes You're Wearing Lyrics – Clint Black

We've all seen enough wrong and right
To know everything's not black and white
There's always something in between
No matter how long or well you live
You don't get anything you don't give
Still no slate is clean
For better or worse, anybody can

Take a look around and find a better man
Upright no matter how he's faring
No matter what kind of shoes he's wearing
The shoes he's wearing
They don't make the man

So many people out running around
Handicapped before they hit the ground
Thinking there's nowhere to go
Shouldn't we all be looking for ways
To keep on seeing our better days
We're not chained to what we know
But if your eyes are open and your mind is free
There's no tellin' what a man can be

Upright no matter how you're faring
No matter what kind of shoes you're wearing
The shoes you're wearing
They don't make the man
But if you can't walk through the best of times
and the worst of times
Find your feet still walking the line
You'll never carry the load worth bearing

No matter what kind of shoes you're wearing
The shoes you're wearing
They won't make the man
The shoes you're wearing
They won't make the man

You Don't Need Me Now Lyrics – Clint Black

Holdin' on, safely to fall
Like there's no tomorrow forsaking it all
Bound and determined to share all of our days
Loving and learning our special ways
That I'm holdin' onto and you've been lettin' go
And wherever you've gone to I'm so far below
You're way over me I can't even see how
Someday I'll need you the way you don't need me now

Movin' on, heart in a stall
Like there's no tomorrow, no beating at all
Bound and determined to forget all of our days
Reliving and learning our special ways
I'm still holdin' onto, maybe no lettin' go
And wherever you've gone to I may never know
The way you're over me I can't even see how
Someday I'll need you the way you don't need me now

And you don't need me now
Like you needed me then
And I'm wondering how I'll be feeling when
I'm way over you I can't even see how
Someday I'll need you the way you don't need me now
No way I'll need you the way you don't need me now...

What I Feel Inside Lyrics – Clint Black

I'm just out of the light
I hadn't caught her eye
But I think I might be lovin' her
I just stepped outta the door
Gotta be a fool to wanna go one more
For the way we were
For the good times,
how many times
I'm losin' track
Everybody goes,
everybody knows
It's gone, don't look back

There's no love in the space I've gained
I could burn my bridges through a pourin' rain
No matter how far or hard I ride
I can't outrun what I feel inside

Tell me, who do you see
See me running 'round,
and you think I'm free
From the way we hurt
Well I don't mean bodily harm
When it comes to the heart,
it's a free alarm
You gotta be alert
For the good times,
how many lines
I'm losin' slack
It's the way to go,
everybody knows
If you don't look back

There's no love in the space I've gained
I could burn my bridges through a pourin' rain
No matter how far or hard I ride
I can't outrun what I feel inside

I never mind what I think I know
I'm getting nowhere everywhere I go

There's no love in the space I've gained
I could burn my bridges through a pourin' rain
No matter how far or hard I ride
I can't outrun what I feel inside...

You Know It All Lyrics – Clint Black

Communications are down all over town
People tryin to get through some will never get an answer
But I've already found a way to get through to you
It comes in gentle and clear I'm still the same romancer
And you know what I'm thinkin if I have to tell you myself
I can never let you wonder what I want you to believe
And there isn't any wonder at how lucky I am
From the smile that I'm wearin and the heart out on my sleeve

[Chorus]
Everybody thinks they know me I don't doubt that it's true
I've never been one to put up many walls
There's so much of me they'll never know not the way you do
When it comes to me you know it all

I've seen all of the signs and all the changing of minds
And signals gettign crossed and the killing seeds are planted
But those could never grow out of things that we know
Like the vows that we made we can always take for granted
While everyone else is losin groung you know where I stand
Forsakin everyone but you to reap the love we sow
And one thing everybody knows is I'm a man of my word
And you and I have places that I'll never let them go while

[Repeat Chorus]

My life has been an open book til you walked in
And turned a page I never saw
You found a side of me that even I could never see
When it comes to me you know it all

Still everybody thinks they know me I don't doubt that it's true
I'm still not one to put up many walls
Cause there's so much of me they'll never know not the way you do
When it comes to me you know it all
