Honkytonk U – Toby Keith

My grandmother owned a nightclub on the Arkansas-Oklahoma line
Momma put me on a greyhound, and I went
To stay with her in the summertime
I’d box up those empty long necks and stack’em in the back and make
A hand
Then at night she’d let me sneak out of the kitchen and sit in with the band
Yes, I have sacked some quarterbacks and broke my share of bones along the way
I knew it wouldn’t
Last forever, semi-pro always means semi-paid
I started climbin’ drillin’ rig, I’m oil field trash and
Proud as I can be
Then I took my songs and guitar and sang’em to a man from Tennessee

I’ve played every beer joint tavern from New York city out to Pasadena
Every corn dog fair and rodeo
And sold out every basketball arena
I like to get down with my boys in Afghanistan and Baghdad city
Too
I am a red, white and blue blood graduate of honkytonk U

A star can’t burn forever, and the brightest ones will someday lose their shine
But the glass wont
Ever be half empty in my optimistic mind
I’ll still have a song to sing and a band to turn it up and
Play it loud
As long as there’s a bar room with a corner stage and a honkytonk crowd

I’ve played every beer joint tavern from New York city out to Pasadena
Every corn dog fair and rodeo
And sold out ever basketball arena
I like to get down with my boys in Afghanistan and Baghdad city
Too
Son I’m a red, white, and blue blood graduate of honkytonk U
That’s right a red, white, and blue
Blood graduate of honkytonk U

I Don’t Understand My Girlfriend – Toby Keith

I thought it would be dandy
If I bought that girl some candy
How was I suppose to know she was allergic to chocolate
I thought it would be fine
If we shared a glass of wine
She said, “Oh no, not another alcoholic”

I don’t understand my girlfriend
I haven’t got a clue
I don’t know where she’s coming from
Or where she’s going to
But if opposites attract
Then I found the perfect woman Jack
I don’t understand my girlfriend
She don’t understand me, too

Yeah I thought I’d show some class
And order pheasant under glass
Hey how was I suppose to know she was an avid bird watcher

I don’t understand my girlfriend
I haven’t got a clue
I don’t know where she’s coming from
Or where she’s going to
But if opposites attract
Then I found the perfect woman Jack
I don’t understand my girlfriend
She don’t understand me too

No she don’t understand me too
No she don’t understand me too

Lucky Me – Toby Keith

I can leave my dirty laundry lyin’ anywhere
I don’t make my bed it’s alright, no one ever goes in there
I can fall asleep on the couch and leave the tv on
‘Cause I’ve got the whole place to myself
Now that all her things are gone

And lucky me, I’ve got room to breathe
With her out of my way, I’m not crowded anymore
And finally, I’ve got all the space I need to walk the floor
Lucky me

Now I’ve got last week’s dishes still piled up in the sink
And lots of time here on my hands to sit around and think
I’m better off in this house alone, it’s a blessing in disguise
And her leavin’ came along, I know
Right at the perfect time

And lucky me, I’ve got room to breathe
With her out of my way, I’m not crowded anymore
And finally, I’ve got all the space I need to walk the floor
Lucky me

That sure was a close call, someone could have been hurt
Yeah, she could be missin’ me, but that’s not what I’ve heard

And lucky me, I’ve got room to breathe
With her out of my way, I’m not crowded anymore
And finally, I’ve got all the space I need to walk the floor
Lucky me
Lucky me, I’ve got all the space I need
Lucky me, I’ve got room to breathe
Lucky me

Blue Bedroom – Toby Keith

Woke up this morning with day old coffee
Smoked what was left of your cigarette
Sit by the phone just in case you call me
It ain’t ringing yet
You’re probably half way to Albuquerque
You’ll hang a north up to Santa Fe
You’ll never know just how much it hurt me
To watch you walk away

From my blue bedroom
I’ve got a sad and lonely view
Of a melancholy moon
My pillow smells like your perfume
Missing you in my blue bedroom

You never told me why you were leaving
I guess you did what you had to do
If you find that love is what you’re needing
It’s waiting here for you

From my blue bedroom
I’ve got a sad and lonely view
Of a melancholy moon
My pillow smells like your perfume
Missing you in my blue bedroom

You left a red dress, some purple shoes
That silver comb that you never used
A yellow ribbon from your hair
Baby you’re still everywhere

In my blue bedroom

In my blue bedroom
I’ve got a sad and lonely view
Of a melancholy moon
My pillow smells like your perfume
Missing you
I’m needing you
Baby I want you
In my blue bedroom
