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

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

Trailerhood – Toby Keith

My neighbor carl, he lives next door
Pink flamingos on his porch
At night he teaches driving school
And he sits out by his plastic pool

He takes off his shirt he opens up a cold one
Old Carls Deans a fool but it takes one to know one

[Chorus:]
Musics playin up and down the block
Mostly chirstian blues, country folk and southern rock
It’s a little piece of paradise way out here in the woods
There’s always something going on down in the trailerhood

Across the street there’s gambling Jane who’s always got the poker game
If you care to try your luck you can buy a seat for 15 bucks
You can call to raise or you can check and fold ’em
I like five card stud but it’s moslty texas hold ’em

[Chorus]

My new tattoos and farmer tans, rodeo and nascar fans
Dallas Cowboy football on TV
When the storm starts gettig bad, you hear the those sirens humming
Grab a six pack and a lawn chair there’s a tornado coming

…. alright ….

[Chorus]

I got ‘er made in the shade with the moonshine lemonade
There’s a party going on down in the trailerhood

Bring me another beer Momma

You Ain’t Leavin’ (Thank God Are Ya) – Toby Keith

Till death do us part is what she told that preacher man
Now she says this ain’t worth dyin’ for
She’s had all she can’t stand
She’s boxed up momma’s china, it’s loaded on the truck
She’s just got started packin, and I’m thinkin’ this could suck
Now there goes my Lay-Z Boy and my flat top guitar
Here comes her big sister, what’s she doin’ in my car
As they drive off to the city I just waved
From the top of my lungs I hope she heard me say.

[Chorus:]
You Ain’t Leavin’ Thank God Are Ya
You can’t be gone fast enough
What seemed to take a lifetime just left in a cloud of dust
This’ll make my girlfriend happy she’s the one
That never thought you would
You Ain’t Leavin’ Thank God Are Ya
Let us pray you’re gone for good.

She forgot her new laptop, so I know she’ll be back
I’ll have a hot tub full of hotties, icein’ down a 24-pack
She’ll cuss me like a sailor, but I don’t care
I’ll have a few choice words when I come up for air.

[Chorus:]
You Ain’t Leavin’ Thank God Are Ya
Let us pray you’re gone for good.
