    Good Time

    (Alan Jackson)

    Work, work all week long
    Punchin’ that clock dusk till dawn.
    Counting the days ‘til Friday night
    That’s when all the conditions are right.
    For a good time
    I need a good time.

    Yeah I’ve been working all week
    And I’m tired and I don’t wanna sleep
    I wanna have fun
    It’s time for a good time

    I cashed my check, cleaned my truck
    Put on my hat, forgot about work
    Sun going down, head across town
    Pick up my baby and turn it around
    Good time,
    Oh, I need a good time

    Chorus

    Pig in the ground, beer on ice
    Just like ole Hank taught us about
    Singing along, Bocephus songs
    Rowdy friends all night long
    Good time
    Lord, we’re having a good time,

    Chorus

    Whew

    Heel to toe do-si-do
    Scootin’ our boots, swingin’ doors
    B & D Kix and Dunn
    Honkin’ tonk heaven, Double shotgun
    Good time,
    Lord, we’re having a good time

    Chorus

    Shot of Tequila, beer on tap
    Sweet southern woman set on my lap
    G with an O, O with a D
    T with an I , M and an E
    Good time
    Good time

    Chorus

    A Shot of Tequila.
    Beer on tap.
    A good looking woman.
    To set on my lap.

    A G with an O, an O with a D
    A T with an I an M with an E
    That spells good time
    A good time

    Chorus
    Twelve o’clock, two o’clock three o’clock four
    Five o’clock we know were that’s gonna go
    Closin’ the door, shuttin’ em down
    Head for that Waffle House way across town
    A Good time

    Repeat Chorus x3

    Oh we need a good time
    I need a good time
    Yeah a good time

    Small Town Southern Man

    (Alan Jackson)

    Born the middle son of a farmer
    And a small town Southern man
    Like his daddy's daddy before him
    Brought up workin' on the land
    Fell in love with a small town woman
    And they married up and settled down
    Natural way of life if you're lucky
    For a small town Southern man

    First there came four pretty daughters
    For this small town Southern man
    Then a few years later came another
    A boy, he wasn't planned
    Seven people livin' all together
    In a house built with his own hands
    Little words with love and understandin'
    From a small town Southern man

    Chorus:
    And he bowed his head to Jesus
    And he stood for Uncle Sam
    And he only loved one woman
    (He) was always proud of what he had
    He said his greatest contribution
    Is the ones he'll leave behind
    Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
    Of a small town Southern man
    (Raised on the ways and gentle kindness)
    (Of a small town Southern man)

    Callous hands told the story
    For this small town Southern man
    He gave it all to keep it all together
    And keep his family on his land
    Like his daddy, years wore out his body
    Made it hard just to walk and stand
    You can break the back
    But you can't break the spirit
    Of a small town Southern man

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Finally death came callin'
    For this small town Southern man
    He said it's alright 'cause I see angels
    And they got me by the hand
    Don't you cry, and don't you worry
    I'm blessed, and I know I am
    'Cause God has a place in Heaven
    For a small town Southern man

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Raised on the ways and gently kindness
    Of a small town southern man

    I Wish I Could Back Up

    (Alan Jackson)

    I wish I could back up and start all over
    ‘Cause now I’d know better the best way to love her
    The words I would tell her the time I would give her
    I wish I could back up and start all over

    Chorus

    Time takes you places you never knew youd be goin’
    It softens the edges of memories you’re towin’
    It changes the reason
    You wanted to hold her
    I wish I could back up and start all over
    I wish I could back up and start all over
    I’d make the first time fell like forever
    Not to be younger maybe just to be smarter
    I wish I could back up and start all over

    Repeat Chorus

    I wish I could back up and start all over
    Days I would take back nights I’d wanna make longer
    Moments I’d never just throw over my shoulder
    I wish I could back up and start all over

    Bridge

    But it’s never too late to wanna do better
    Love’s never easy, changes just like the weather
    Some days it’s raining some are sunny and blue
    There’s never perfect but there’s faithful and true

    Repeat Chorus

    I wish I could back up and start all over

    Country Boy

    (Alan Jackson)

    Excuse me ma’am, I saw you walkin’
    I turned around, I’m not a stalker
    Where you going? Maybe I can help you
    My tank is full, and I’d be obliged to take you

    ‘Cause I’m a country boy, I’ve got a 4-wheel drive
    Climb in my bed, I’ll take you for a ride
    Up city streets, down country roads
    I can get you where you need to go
    ’cause I’m a country boy

    You sure look good, sittin’ in my right seat
    Buckle up, I’ll take you through the five speeds
    Wind it up, or I can slow it way down
    In the woods or right uptown

    Repeat Chorus

    Big 35’s whinin’ on the asphalt
    Grabbin’ mud, and slingin’ up some red dirt
    ’cause I’m a country boy

    My muffler’s loud, dual Thrush tubes
    I crank the music, the tone gets real good
    Let me know when we’re gettin’ close
    You can slide on out, or we can head on down the road

    Repeat Chorus

    Bucket seats, soft as baby’s new butt
    Lockin’ hubs, that’ll take you through a deep rut

    Repeat chorus x2

    Yeah, I'm a country boy,
    Oh, I'm just a country boy,
    A nice little country boy.

    Right Where I Want You

    (Alan Jackson)

    I’m usually strong
    keep love all away
    wall around my heart
    so it won’t have to break
    but you take me some place that i’ve never been
    now i don’t know if i’ll find my way back again

    chorus:
    cause you’ve got me right where i want you
    and there’s not a thing i can’t do
    completely consume all about you
    you’ve got me right where i want you

    i close my eyes you’re looking at me
    you wake me at night walking round in my dreams
    the wind blows a smell of roses in blume
    and all i can think of is last night’s perfume

    [chorus]

    and i’ve never thought that i would get caught
    but here i am wrapped up in you

    [chorus]
    you’ve got me right where,
    you’ve got me right where,
    you’ve got me right where i want you.

    1976

    (Alan Jackson)

    Rocky burned up the movie screen
    I was truning 17
    Tie dyed shirts and Levi jeans
    Looking cool at the Dairy Queen
    Trying ot impress
    A young woman in her Sunday dress

    That was 1976
    Didn’t know who I was yet
    A pretty little blonde haired girl
    Stole my heart and changed my world
    Two kids and a moonlit sky
    A little love on a Friday night
    Built a fire that just wont quit
    That was 1976

    My high school days I packed away
    Set my sights on a bigger stage
    Jimmy Carter moved to D.C.
    A Georgia boy just like me
    Life seemed easy
    Nothin’ much that we needed

    Repeat Chorus

    8-track taper were still in style
    And Elvis was still alive
    Wonder Woman sure looked fine
    Bionic Man was still primetime
    And that girl I liked
    We kept on tying ‘til we got it right

    Repeat Chorus

    That was 1976
    Didn’t know who we were yet
    Built a fire that just wont quit
    That was 1976
    Built a fire that just wont quit
    That was 1976

    When The Love Factor's High

    (Alan Jackson)

    Tonight doesn’t feel like it did last night
    I’m feeling war and different in side
    Since I saw your face
    Since I looked in your eyes
    Theres a change in this place
    I think the love factor’s high

    When the love factor’s high
    And two hearts collide
    You don’t even try
    And that’s when you’ll find
    The one that feels right
    The one for all time
    It’s hard to deny
    When the love factor’s high

    Sometimes it flies
    And sometimes it falls
    Sometimes your back ends up against the wall
    As I hold you close
    And we dance in time
    I think I know
    The love factor’s high

    Repeat Chorus

    It’s hard to deny
    When the love factor’s high

    Long Long Way

    (Alan Jackson)

    It happens every time I think about the reasons why
    I'm seating here alone at night and not with you.
    Heartache takes control and lets me know
    just what a fool I was and how you can't erase the things you do.

    And sorry just can't mend a broken heart, I've hand in you
    brake apart is what most broken hearts still you to do.

    Chorus:
    But I made long long way from over you
    don’t think I've ever seen so many shades of blue.
    They say the time will heal
    don't know if I ever will
    'cause I made long long way from over you.

    Now over you the sound like some lost city
    people tell me how to find it, somehow I just never do
    And maybe it's because I never wanted to it all,
    of course now I see that I had the best in you.

    That clock just runs in circles, days just go on' by
    memories hold me closer, no matter how I cry.

    Chorus

    That clock just runs in circles, days just go on' by
    memories hold me closer, no matter how I cry.

    Chorus

    They say the time will heal
    don't know if I ever will
    'cause I made long long way from over you

    Sissy's Song

    (Alan Jackson)

    Why did she have to go
    So young I just don't know why
    Things happen half the time
    Without reason without rhyme
    Lovely, sweet young woman
    Daughter, wife and mother
    Makes no sense to me
    I just have to believe

    She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
    By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
    And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
    And I know she's smiling saying
    Don't worry 'bout me

    Loved ones she left behind
    Just trying to survive
    And understand the why
    Feeling so lost inside
    Anger shot straight at God
    Then asking for His love
    Empty with disbelief
    Just hoping that maybe

    Chorus

    It's hard to say goodbye
    Her picture in my mind
    Will always be of times I'll cherish
    And I won't cry 'cause

    Chorus

    Don't worry 'bout me
    Don`t worry 'bout me

    I Still Like Bologna

    (Alan Jackson)

    There's Satellite communications
    Long distance Internet relations
    The world's a little faster every day
    I know it's all well and good
    And I don't embrace it like I should
    But I wouldn't wanna go
    Backwards even if I could

    But I still like Bologna on white bread now and then
    And the sound of a whippoorwill down a country road
    The grass between my toes and that sunset sinking low
    And a good woman's love to hold me close
    I like my 50 inch HD plasma

    Feels like
    They just reach out and grab you
    500 channels at my command
    I finally gave in and got a cell phone
    That I hardly ever seem to turn on
    I guess I never had that much to say

    (Chorus)

    I got a laptop that sits on a desk
    I don't use it much except to check
    On some ole car from yesterday
    I kinda like that music thang
    You just download 'em and you can save about
    Every song that's ever been made

    (Chorus)

    Well I guess what I've been trying to say
    This digital world is okay
    It makes life better in a lot of ways
    But it can't make the smell of spring
    Or sunshine or lots of little things
    We take for granted every day

    (Chorus)

    Yeah, Bologna a woman's love and a good cell phone

    Never Loved Before (feat. Martina McBride)

    (Alan Jackson)

    Girl I swear you got me acting crazy
    Half the time I don't know what my name is
    I’m the kind that like to take it slow and lazy
    And girl you got me running hot and haziest

    (Chorus)
    Oh, I love you like I never
    Oh, I love you like I never
    Oh, I love you like I never loved before

    (Martina McBride)
    Boy you got me burning like a rocket
    You stole my heart and stuck it in your pocket
    Now I got your face inside my locket
    I’ve really tried but I don’t think I can stop it baby

    (Chorus)
    Oh I, love you like I never
    Oh I, love you like I never
    Oh I, love you like I never loved before

    (Alan Jackson)
    You sat beside me last night on the sofa
    I took your hand and pulled you little closer
    You kiss my lips and then you let me hold you
    That feels the way that love supposed to baby

    (Chorus)
    Oh, I love you like I never
    Oh, I love you like I never
    Oh, I love you like I never loved before

    (Martina McBride)
    You held the door when we went to the movies
    I like your quirky sneaky sense of humor
    You’re strong and sweat and all the things I needed
    You’re the one that keeps my heart beating baby

    (Chorus)
    Oh, I love you like I never
    Oh, I love you like I never
    Oh, I love you like I never loved before

    (Martina McBride)
    Oh, my heart stops beating
    When it’s time for you to leave me

    (Alan Jackson)
    Yeah, and my head starts spinning
    Every time that you are near me

    (Chorus)
    Oh, I love you like I never
    Oh, I love you like I never
    Oh, I love you like I never loved before

    (Chorus)
    Oh, I love you like I never
    Oh, I love you like I never
    Oh, I love you like I never loved before

    Nothing Left To Do

    (Alan Jackson)

    I shaved my face and combed my hair, put on a new pair of underwear
    And sat on the porch with my Labrador like a hundred other times before
    She changed her shoes and freshened up her face, put on some skimpy sexy lace
    And finally made her way through the back screen door, we loaded up on the front seat of my Ford

    And we went out to dinner and we drove right back home, watched an old movie and drank a half a bottle of Rum
    Then we turned off the TV and we got right down to it, there aint nothin’ left to do now that we’ve done it

    Oh, yes

    [Instrumental Interlude]

    It seems like it happens every time, we get a chance to reignite that fire
    We burn it fast and then retire just before the news on channel five

    Yeah, we went out to dinner and we drove right back home, watched an old movie and drank a half a bottle of Rum
    Then we turned off the TV and we got right down to it, there aint nothin left to do now that we’ve done it

    [Instrumental Interlude]

    After all these years it can get routine, you can change the order up, or use different names
    Try it in the mornin or the middle of the day, the end results still the same

    Oh, we went out to dinner and we drove right back home, watched an old movie and drank a half a bottle of Rum
    Then we turned off the TV and we got right down to it, there aint nothin left to do now that we’ve done it
    Oh, Lord, we’ve turned off the TV and we got right down to it, and there aint nothin left to do now that we’ve done it

    Hey, honey, hand me that remote

    Listen To Your Senses

    (Alan Jackson)

    Look at me and tell me you don’t love me
    Take my hand and say it can’t be
    Kiss me once and just before you walk away
    Listen first to what your senses say

    ‘Cause I can see me loving you forever
    I can feel my arms around your life
    I can taste your lips against my memory
    Listen to your senses what they have to say

    Love can hurt and love can scar you
    At times is best to turn away
    But love can heal and love can save you
    Today is not like yesterday

    Chorus

    Listen to your senses
    What they have to say
    I can see me loving you forever

    This Time

    (Alan Jackson)

    There’s an old hardwood tree staring through the glass at me
    Its been there since eighty-five, sometimes I think it reads my mind
    I guess its true, you cant keep it from shinnin’ through

    There’s no denying
    I’ve been hiding
    From this thing that’s chasing me
    Yeah, I’ve been running
    No good at shunning
    All these scars from yesterday
    There comes a time
    You gotta give it up
    Spin that wheel
    And try your luck
    Never know what you will find
    It might be love this time

    I knew it from that very first smile I could taste it like a hungry child
    Not at all like all the rest, you know they say that last is best
    Like a rainbow on a cloudy day, just to shout it takes my breath away

    Repeat Chorus x2

    This time, this time, oh, this time, this time
    This time

    Laid Back 'N Low Key (CAY)

    (Alan Jackson)

    Laid back an low key
    You an me on that white powdered beach
    Side by side with the sand and the sea
    Laid Back 'an Low Key

    Gentle roar of a wave on the shore
    Makes it way through the crack neath the door
    Wake up call from the ocean floor
    Down in Abaco

    Chorus

    (Bridge)

    Tequila sunrise in a coconut vase
    Hammock swinging in the palm tree shade
    Standard island beach resort cliche
    Hey but that's ok

    Chorus

    Wind blowing on the back of my neck
    Sun reflecting off that tan on your breasts
    Found that feeling that we lost long ago
    Down in Abaco

    Repeat Chorus x2

    If You Want To Make Me Happy

    (Alan Jackson)

    What’ll it be he asked,
    What do you need tonight
    Something cold to drown the fire
    , Something hot to stir one up
    I’ll make it simple I said,
    Just two things I’ll request
    That bottle by your shoulder,
    And some quarters for these dollars

    CHORUS
    Cause if you wanna make me happy
    Pour me burban on the rocks
    And play every sad song on the jukebox
    Songs of loving and leaving lying and cheating
    Songs of hurting and crying and even songs of dying
    If you wanna make me happy
    Pour me some bourbon on the rocks
    And play every sad song on the jukebox

    A woman he ask,
    She left you I bet
    I’ve seen that look that’s in your eyes
    on a many other face
    That’s right I said,
    I deserved it I guess
    But it still hurts me all alone
    At night there by myself

    CHORUS
    If you wanna make me happy
    Pour me some bourbon on the rocks
    And play every sad song on the jukebox

    If Jesus Walked The World Today

    (Alan Jackson)

    If Jesus walked the world today, He’d probably be a Hillbilly
    Common man of men and the King of many
    He’d lay his hands on his brother man, save us all from the sinnin
    If Jesus walked the world today, He’d probably be a Hillbilly

    If He was here today I bet He’d drive a Chevrolet
    Workin at the plant drawin workers pay
    He’d preach in some little country church outside of the city
    If Jesus walked the world today, He’d probably be a Hillbilly

    Chorus
    His long hair and sandled feet would be in style
    Surround himself with the good old boys to tell His tale
    He’d have a mighty cross tattoo on his hands by the nail holes that killed Him
    If Jesus walked the world today, He’d probably be a Hillbilly

    Chorus

    Some folks would say it wasn’t really Him
    You know they’d probably send Him off to some kind of looney bin

    They wouldn’t hang Him on the cross but they’d find some way to condemn Him
    If Jesus walked the world today, He’d probably be a Hillbilly

    Chorus
    Yeah, He’d be a Hillbilly
    Id bet Jesus be a Hillbilly, Lord; you know He’d be a Hillbilly
