    Road Trippin Josh Abbott Band


    Road Trippin –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    Koozie’s in the console, beer’s on the floor,
    and everybody’s gassing up their Fords.
    I got good tunes blaring sing-along-songs,
    and everybody’s glad to get long gone.

    Well it’s Friday night and we’re getting out of town.
    We don’t care when the sun goes down.
    Making memories with my friends…
    Just road trippin on a long weekend.

    [Verse 2]
    Gamble in Shreveport, ski Colorado,
    or we can do both in New Mexico.
    A country concert, or a football game,
    everytime’s different but it’s the same.

    Take pictures next to city limit signs…
    Stayin up late with Boones Farm Wine…
    Gonna have a dozen stories to tell…
    Damn glad we got out of our hometown jail…

    All of a Sudden Josh Abbott Band


    All of a Sudden –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    Time don’t freeze, and the world goes round.
    What goes up must come down.
    But when you said you were gonna leave,
    I guess that’s when it occurred to me.

    All of a sudden I can’t call you baby.
    All of a sudden our address ain’t the same.
    All of a sudden we ain’t lovin.
    All of a sudden everything’s changed.
    All of a sudden everything’s changed.

    [Verse 2]
    I get off work but I don’t go home;
    ain’t in a hurry to be alone.
    No dinner dates, no movie nights,
    man I’m living a whole new life.

    You heeded warnings I kept ignoring.
    I guess I didn’t know what I really had.

    If You're Leaving (I'm Coming Too) Josh Abbott Band


    If You're Leaving (I'm Coming Too) –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    You’re walking out as I’m walking in.
    You say you’re done that you’ve reached your end.
    Girl I don’t know what I’d do
    but if you’re leaving I’m coming too.

    [Verse 2]
    If I’m broken promises then baby you’re the lies.
    If I’m excuses you’re lonely alibis.
    You walking out ain’t nothing new.
    So if you’re leaving I’m coming too.

    Well maybe it’s our jobs pushing us around
    or the ghosts of our pasts knocking us down.
    I need you babe; I’m aiming and ready to run.
    Somewhere along the way we lost sight of me and you
    but if you’re leaving…I’m coming too.

    [Verse 3]
    Let’s pack it light and get out of this town.
    No more baggage weighing us down.
    Heaven’s on the other side of hell we’ve been through.
    So if you’re leaving I’m coming too.

    Fall in Love Again Josh Abbott Band


    Fall in Love Again –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    I’m sending tulips to where you work
    with a note and a bible verse
    and an “I Love You”, hoping that you still do.
    I’m sitting here when you pull in the drive.
    I got a hug waiting for you inside
    and an “I’m sorry” too, baby I’ve been a fool.

    I wanna raise the bar higher.
    I want you to feel inspired.
    Baby tonight, can we fall in love again?
    I know I tore your trust apart,
    but if you find it in your heart
    to let me back in, I know we can…
    we can fall in love again.

    [Verse 2]
    I’ll take you down to San Antonio.
    We’ll see the river walk and the Alamo
    and maybe the zoo, just wanna be with you.
    Take a carriage ride under the stars,
    it feels so good to have you in my arms
    where you belong, baby it’s been too long.

    She's Like Texas Josh Abbott Band


    She's Like Texas –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    She’s as free as blue bonnets in the summer.
    She’s as hot as the Padre Island sun.
    Most of the time she’s as warm and friendly
    Like the hills that surround Austin.

    She’s as bright as the Dallas sky.
    She always holds her head up high.
    She loves the company of her family.
    She has faith in God’s greater plan.
    She trusts I’m a good man.
    And that’s why I’ll always believe
    She’s like Texas, and she likes me.

    [Verse 2]
    Her eyes are green like the trees in Nacogdoches.
    Her teeth are white as cotton in the fall.
    And when she laughs you’ll always take notice
    'Cause her heart’s charm will shine right through it all.


    Her moods can change like the weather out in Lubbock.
    But if you show her love, man, she’ll return it.


    Oh, she’s like Texas, and she likes me.

    Brushy Creek Josh Abbott Band


    Brushy Creek –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    I got a guitar; you got a smile.
    We can go to Brushy Creek for a while
    and have us a good time.
    There ain’t nothing like the sound
    of the hill country singing in the background.

    [Verse 2]
    Well your grandparents own this land,
    built this house with their hands
    and lived a good life.
    Now they’re looking down
    dancing to the hill country background.

    Oh there’s a round rock that lies midstream.
    We can go there and share our dreams.
    Hike on up to the railroad tracks
    and maybe hold hands when we walk back.

    [Verse 3]
    A place to think and come back home
    when we’re tired and feeling alone
    in this good life.
    Where our love is found
    in the hill country singing in the background.

    [Verse 4]
    I got a guitar; you got a ring.
    Let’s go to Brushy Creek this spring
    and have us a good time.
    There ain’t nothing like the sound
    of the hill country singing in the background.

    Oh, Tonight Josh Abbott Band


    Oh, Tonight –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    I grab your hand and you say “wait.”
    I say “no girl it’s way too late.”
    We’ve been playing games for weeks,
    now I’m ready to play for keeps.

    Oh, tonight, we’re gonna set the world on fire.
    I’m gonna set aside my pride.
    Not gonna be the one to say “goodbye,”
    Neither am I…Oh, tonight.

    [Verse 2]
    So go on kiss me on the mouth.
    You know you want to; you should’ve done it by now.
    Girl you don’t know how long I’ve tried,
    been fighting feelings deep inside.

    So tell me what you want me to do.
    Oh, it’s too late baby I’ve already fallen in love with you.

    Hot Water Josh Abbott Band


    Hot Water –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    Let the water drops fall down upon your chest
    and carry away with them all your stress.
    Let the steam begin to rise and fill this room
    with the intoxicating smell of your perfume.

    I will touch your neck, kiss your shoulders,
    assure you that this is not over.
    I will hold you close and put your lips to mine.
    As long as there’s hot water baby
    this is what we’re doing with tonight.

    [Verse 2]
    The flicker of the candlelight reflects it all:
    one shadow of us dancing on the wall.
    Don’t hold back baby just hold on, and feel my arms
    as I shield you away from this world’s harms.

    I Just Wanna Love You Josh Abbott Band


    I Just Wanna Love You –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    Well lately it’s occurred to me we let life get busy.
    We go to work and we pay our taxes on time.
    Well that kind of living will not do, keeping me away from you.
    I just wanna love you tonight.

    I just wanna love you, I just wanna love you,
    I just wanna love you tonight.
    Get lost in love with you for hours, make love in a bed of flowers.
    I just wanna love you tonight.

    [Verse 2]
    Well this ol’ world has got you down, stress is giving you a frown.
    Seems like there ain’t no end in sight.
    Well come on home, it’s time to unwind, pour a glass of sweet red wine.
    I just wanna love you tonight.

    End of a Dirt Road Josh Abbott Band


    End of a Dirt Road –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    I think it’s time to take a drive,
    man it’s been too long
    and you know it sounds so sweet.
    Cuz when the gravel hits the tires
    it’ll right the wrongs
    of too much city, and too much concrete.

    Take me to an old stock tank,
    or the Devil’s river bank,
    that fishing hole that stirs my memories.
    Take me to a cold deer stand
    or shooting guns at old beer cans.
    You won’t find street signs where I wanna be.
    I wouldn’t give a nickel to have it paved in gold.
    Everything I love is at the end of a dirt road.

    [Verse 2]
    It’s cattle guards and old barb wire,
    shooting birds in the fall,
    and laying in the truck bed with my girl.
    It’s the smell of mesquite campfire,
    shooting Makers with the boys,
    and thanking God for giving me this world.

    My eyes on a piece of land,
    a ring for her hand,
    a little Heaven on earth,
    a little piece of red dirt.

    Let My Tears Be Still Josh Abbott Band


    Let My Tears Be Still –Josh Abbott Band

    [Verse 1]
    My name is Lieutenant Colonel William Todd.
    I flew the 101st Airborne in ’42.
    You may think that you’ve met veterans like me before,
    but you don’t have a clue.

    [Verse 2]
    I flew Korea in the war you probably forgot.
    I gave 40 years of damn near all I got.
    I watched some of my closest friends die on foreign land.
    I still hear their screams at night.

    So don’t you wipe away my tears.
    I’ve earned them through all the years.
    Just let ‘em roll down like a stream upon a hill.
    Let my tears be still.

    [Verse 3]
    I met Jean Ann in a photograph in ’44.
    I swore she’d be the girl to take my last name.
    52 years passed til the Lord took her away,
    but I still see Jean everyday.

    [Verse 4]
    At the end of my rope as I lay here in this bed.
    Thoughts and prayers of my family circle through my head.
    I pray when the Lord opens up the pearly gates wide
    that I’ll see my Jean standing there in the light.
