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

Where You Gonna Go? – Toby Keith

June fell for Johnny on the Forth of July,
As the fireworks popped in the summer sky.
With a spark in her eye, she just there an’ stared,
As his face lit up to the rocket’s red glare.
An’ by September, she’d asked him for a weddiing band.
How could she know he was a ramblin’ man.
He walked out the door in the dead of the night.
An’ a sleepy voice whispered, as he turned out the light:

“Where you gonna go?
“What you gonna do when you get there?
“Who you gonna call when your road runs out at the sea?
“Oh, you’re never gonna find,
“Someone who loves you like I do.
“If you get tired of runnin’,
“You can turn around an’ walk back to me.”

He called up to tell her he missed her a lot.
Texas Panhandle was as far as he got.
He’d run out money, he’d run of luck:
He’d run out of gas in his pick-up truck.
“Hitch a ride, catch a train or a Greyhound bus,
“‘Cause there’s a baby on the way an’ that makes three of us.
“An’ I need you here beside me, I can’t go it alone,”
She told him one more time then she hung up the ‘phone,

Sayin’: “Where you gonna go?
“What you gonna do when you get there?
“Who you gonna call when your road runs out at the sea?
“You know, you’re never gonna find,
“Someone who loves you like I do.
“When you get tired of runnin’,
“You can turn around an’ walk back to me.”

An’ the years just seemed to roll on by them.
She missed him more an’ more every day.
An’ that boy grew up to look and act just like him,
An’ she knew some day soon he’d be old enough to fly away.

An’ she’d say: “Baby, where you gonna go?
“What you gonna do when you get there?
“Who you gonna call when your road runs out at the sea?
“You know, you’re never gonna find,
“Someone who loves you like I do.
“When you get tired of runnin’,
“You can turn around an’ walk back to me.”

“If you ever get tired of runnin’,
“Turn around an’ walk back to me.”

We Were In Love – Toby Keith

If I could invent a time machine
Then maybe we’d both be seventeen
Cruising in my first car, and actin’ like movie stars on a Friday night
Do you remember those Friday nights

We were a rock ready to roll there was a fire down in our souls
And all the whole world had to stand still then turn around us
‘Cause that was the deal
And oh how those nights went flowing like wine
When I was all yours and you were all mine
And we were in love yeah we were in love

I can still see you when I sleep
There is a picture I still keep
You with your hair in the wind
And me with that crazy grin under summer skies when dreams where too young to die

We were a rock ready to roll there was a fire down in our souls
And all the whole world had to stand still then turn around us
‘Cause that was the deal
And oh how those nights went flowing like wine
When I was all yours and you were all mine
And we were in love yeah we were in love

Oh I know I know it sounds crazy but baby your still the one
So let’s find a way to bring back the days when our hearts were forever young

And we were a rock ready to roll there was a fire down in our souls
And all the whole world had to stand still then turn around us
‘Cause that was the deal
And oh how those nights went flowing like wine
When I was all yours and you were all mine
And we were in love yeah we were in love
Oh we were in love
Oh we were in love

Knock Yourself Out – Toby Keith

If you wanna go back to him, baby, get up and go
im tired of being a clown caught up in your
sideshow
night after night it never ends
its like a heavyweight fight nobody wins
and im throwin’
in the towel, enough is enough

[chorus]
Knock yourself out, break me in two
you gotta go do what you gotta do
i gave you my best shot, but
you didnt fall
head over heels in love after all
i dont wanna hear no more, baby, theres the door

theres nothin left to fight about
knock yourself out

oh, lets not pull any punches while we’re standin here toe to toe
if you’re gonna leave me here,
baby go on, go

[repeat chorus]

oh knock yourself out

if you wanna go back to him, baby, get up and go
