    Meat And Potato Man

    (Harley Allen/ John Pennell (BMI))

    I like my steak well done, my taters fried
    Football games on Monday night
    It's just who I am
    A meat and potato man

    I like my coffee black
    Ol' TV shows
    My women hot and my beer ice cold
    It's just who I am
    A meat and potato man

    I don’t like caviar, sushi bars,
    The IRS or phony starts
    I’m a Haggard fan
    A meat and potato man

    I like my fishin' holes, lightnin' bugs
    Flatt n' Scruggs, and my woman's love
    It's just who I am
    A meat and potato man

    I like my Wrangler jeans, cowboy boots
    Cornbread and beans and country roots
    It's just who I am
    A meat and potato man

    I don't like politics, hypocrites
    Folks with poodles dressed like kids
    I'm a hounddog fan
    A meat and potato man… yeah, that's what I am
    A meat and potato man

    When Somebody Loves You

    (Alan Jackson)

    When your heart is all alone every second
    Seems so long
    When it's just you, you can't see through
    Those ol' clouds that rain so blue

    But when somebody loves you
    There's nothing you can't do
    When somebody loves you
    It's easy to get through
    When somebody loves you
    The way I love you

    When it's late, the sun hangs low
    By yourself, nowhere to go
    Sing a song, you dance alone
    Play solitaire and stare at the phone

    Chorus

    So let's put aside our foolish pride
    And let our hearts say hello
    We both agree we're just no good
    At bein' on our own

    'Cause when somebody loves you
    There's nothing you can't do
    When somebody loves you
    It's easy to get through
    When somebody loves you
    The way I love you

    The way I love you
    The way I love you

    The Thrill Is Back

    (Anna Lisa Graham, Dana Hunt)

    Well I'm ready to raise the blinds in this place
    Think I'll rejoin the human race
    You said yes, now you're wearing my ring
    Guess I can stop playin' ol' B.B. King

    'Cause the thrill is back, the heartache's gone
    Time stands still, baby love lives on
    The room spins around, when you're kissin' me
    The thrill is back like it used to be

    I sure could use a haircut and shave
    Now that I'm crawling outta my cave
    Since you said we were through
    I've been down with a case of the blues

    But the thrill is back, the heartache's gone
    Time stands still, baby love lives on
    The room spins around, when you're kissin' me
    The thrill is back like it used to be

    I think I'd better give my doctor a call
    And tell him I won't need that Prozac after all

    Yeah the thrill is back, the heartache's gone
    Time stands still, baby love lives on
    The room spins around, when you're kissin' me
    The thrill is back like it used to be

    The room spins around, when you're kissin' me
    The thrill is back like it used to be

    WWW.Memory

    (Alan Jackson)

    I know you're leaving, I see the signs
    You're gonna walk out on this heart of mine
    You'll never call me, you'll never write
    You made your mind up, you're gone tonight
    If some rainy day you're all alone
    You feel like talkin' you can log me on

    At www.memory
    I'll be waitin' for you patiently
    If you feel the need, just click on me
    At www.memory

    You won't even have to hold me or
    Look into my eyes
    You can tell me you love me
    Through your keyboard and wires
    No, you won't have to touch me or
    Even take my hand
    Just slide your little mouse around
    Until you see it land

    Chorus

    If you feel like love, just click on me
    At www.memory

    Where I Come From

    (Alan Jackson)

    Well I was rollin' wheels and shiftin' gears
    'Round that Jersey Turnpike
    When Barney stopped me with his gun
    Ten minutes after midnight
    Said sir you broke the limit in that rusty ol' truck
    I don't know about that accent son
    Just where do you come from

    I said where I come from
    It's cornbread and chicken
    Where I come from a lotta front porch sittin'
    Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
    And workin' hard to get to heaven
    Where I come from

    Well I was south of Detroit City
    I pulled in this country kitchen
    To try their brand of barbecue
    The sign said finger-lickin'
    Well I paid the tab and the lady asked me
    How'd I like my biscuit
    I'll be honest with you ma'am
    It ain't like mama fixed it

    'Cause where I come from
    It's cornbread and chicken
    Where I come from a lotta front porch pickin'
    Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
    Workin' hard to get to heaven
    Where I come from

    I was chasin' sun on 101
    Somewhere around Ventura
    I lost a universal joint and I had to use my finger
    This tall lady stopped and asked
    If I had plans for dinner
    Said no thanks ma'am, back home
    We like the girls that sing soprano

    'Cause where I come from
    It's cornbread and chicken
    Where I come from a lotta front porch sittin'
    Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
    Workin' hard to get to heaven
    Where I come from

    Well I was headed home on 65
    Somewhere around Kentucky
    The CB rang for a bobtail rig
    That's rollin' on like thunder
    Well I answered him and he asked me
    Aren't you from out in Tulsa
    No, but you might have seen me there
    I just dropped a load of salsa

    Where I come from it's cornbread and chicken
    Where I come from a lotta back porch pickin'
    Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
    Workin' hard to get to heaven
    Where I come from
    Where I come from
    Yeah where I come from
    A lotta front porch sitting
    Starin' up at heaven
    Where I come from
    Where I come from
    Tryin' to make a livin'
    Tryin' to make a livin'
    Oh, where I come from
    Where I come from
    Yeah, where I come from
    Get back down there sometime
    Where I come from

    I Still Love You

    (Harley Allen)

    The door still creaks, the roof still leaks
    When the rain comes fallin' down
    The dog still barks at every car that comes around
    My boss at work, he's still a jerk
    That ain't nothing new
    I'm such a dope, my heart's still broke
    'Cause I still love you

    My favorite picture of you is still on my windowsill
    You wrote to me don't ever change
    And I'm afraid I never will
    When day is done the night still comes
    And I still toss and turn
    I still try to have some pride,
    While the bridge still burns
    My arms still ache, my heart still waits
    And I know there's no use
    I'm still a fool and it's so cruel
    'Cause I still love you

    My favorite picture of you is still on my windowsill
    You wrote to me don't ever change
    And I'm afraid I never will
    The door still creaks, the roof still leaks
    But that ain't nothing new
    Thanks for the call, I guess that's all
    Except I still love you

    Life Of Love

    (Harley Allen, Gary Cotton)

    I tried to stay on the straight and narrow
    But I've walked a crooked path
    And I've felt worthy of forgiveness
    And deservin' heaven's wrath
    Right on the money and off by a mile
    Ahead of my time and way out of style

    But I'm hangin' tough, I ain't had enough
    I ain't givin' up on life or love
    Well I try to stay away from the bottle
    But I've reached out for the glass
    I try to pull back on the throttle
    But I still run out of gas
    I've been an angel, but never a saint
    Hung with the devil, don't nobody faint

    'Cause I'm hangin' tough, I ain't had enough
    I ain't givin' up on life or love

    Yesterday's history, today is a chance
    Tomorrow is a mystery, so I'm makin' plans

    To keep hangin' tough, I ain't had enough
    I ain't givin' up on life or love
    I keep hangin' tough, I ain't had enough
    I ain't givin' up on life or love, life or love

    A Love Like That

    (Alan Jackson)

    Well I've been wonderin' what I've been missin'
    I guess I should have known
    But my heart does and it ain't whisperin'
    It tells me just what it wants

    Someone who knows what I like in my coffee
    And the shape of my ol' hat
    A lover who always looks at me not through me
    I need a love like that

    I need a love like that
    I could use a little sun on my back
    A truck needs a highway, a train needs a track
    I need a love like that

    Well I need a new car but I can't afford it
    So I keep patchin' that ol' flat
    My heart's lonely and I can't ignore it
    I need a love like that

    Yeah, I need a love like that
    I could use a little sun on my back
    A truck needs a highway, a train needs a track
    I need a love like that

    Two young people dancin' in the daylight
    They don't care where they're at
    Waitin' on sunset holdin' on so tight
    I need a love like that

    Yeah, I need a love like that
    I could use a little sun on my back
    A truck needs a highway, a train needs a track
    I need a love like that

    One little baby hidin' in the shadow
    Of her daddy's hat
    Lovin' and trustin' blindly she'll follow
    I need a love like that

    Yeah, I need a love like that
    I could use a little sun on my back
    A truck needs a highway a train needs a track
    And I need a love like that

    Yeah, a truck needs a highway, a train needs a track
    And I need a love like that

    It's Alright To Be A Redneck

    (Bill Kenner & Pat McLaughlin)

    Ba-bom-bom…
    It's alright to be a redneck.
    It's alright to drive around in a dirty ol' truck,
    Catch a bunch of fish and shoot a bunch of duck.
    It's alright to be a redneck.
    Chase around the girls on Friday night.
    You wanna make 'em feel alright.

    It's alright (it's alright),
    It's alright (it's alright),
    It's alright to be a redneck.

    It's alright to be a redneck.
    It's alright to work hard in the sun all day,
    Drink a couple beers after balin' hay.
    It's good to be a redneck.
    Drive by Ernie's for some barbecue,
    Showin' off your brand new boots.

    It's alright (it's alright),
    It's alright (it's alright),
    It's alright to be a redneck.

    The kids are gonna cry and the chicken's gonna fry.
    Oh, you know it.
    Your car won't run.
    So your cousin's comin' by to tow it.

    Ba-bom-bom…
    It's alright to be a redneck.
    It's alright to have a girl named Thelma Lou.
    That don't mind a little kiss when you got a little chew.
    Party on the road by the light of the moon.
    Dancin' to a country tune.

    It's alright (it's alright),
    It's alright (it's alright),
    It's alright to be a redneck.
    It's alright (it's alright),
    It's alright (it's alright),
    It's alright to be a redneck.

    Yeah, it's alright (it's alright),
    It's just right (it's alright),
    It's alright to be a redneck
    Ba-bom-bom …

    Maybe I Should Stay Here

    (Robert Lee Castleman, Melanie Castleman)

    Maybe I should stay here
    For the rest of my life
    My compliments to you dear
    You're so easy on the eyes
    I'm likin' how my Jack and water mixes with your
    Estee Lauder ooh
    So maybe I should stay here
    And keep makin' eyes at you

    Maybe you should stay here
    I beg you not to go
    There's something I must say dear
    I'm compelled to let you know
    My intuition makes me think
    That holdin' you's a possibility
    So maybe you should stay here
    And keep makin' eyes at me

    Some lovers lose, some lovers win
    But honey I don't care
    Somebody said only fools rush in
    But me, I'm already there

    So maybe we should stay here
    'Cause here's where we belong
    Like me the night is lonely
    Like you the night is young
    There's no reason why
    We shouldn't have these feelings
    If it happens naturally, oh yeah
    So maybe we should stay here
    For all eternity, oh baby, we should stay here just
    You and me

    Three Minute Positive Not Too Country Uptempo Love Song

    This is a three minute song
    To tell her that I love her
    And how wonderful we get along
    A sweet sentiment that's borderline slick
    A lotta right and not much wrong

    It's a little bit edgy, but softer than spaghetti
    Weak yet redundantly strong
    It's a three minute positive
    Not too country up-tempo love song

    Yeah, it's a three minute positive
    Not to country up-tempo love song
    It's a way to tell her that I love her
    But it can't be too long
    There'll be no drinkin', no cheatin',
    No lyin', no leavin'
    That stuff it just don't belong
    In a three minute positive
    Not too county up-tempo love song

    You won't hear four-letter words
    Just me tellin' her
    That she's the every breath I draw
    And how I can't live without her
    And I could never doubt her
    'Cause she could never do no wrong

    Well it's the right amount of timin'
    The proper form of rhymin'
    A little guitar then it's gone
    It's a three minute positive
    Not too country up-tempo love song

    Chorus

    Yeah in a three minute positive
    Not too country up-tempo love song
    There'll be no drinkin', no cheatin',
    No lyin', no leavin'
    That stuff it just don't belong
    In a three minute positive
    Not too country up-tempo love song
    Yeah in a three minute positive
    Not too country up-tempo love song
