Upstairs, Downtown – Toby Keith

Route 14 Box 308
She said goodbye at the cattle-guard gate
Hoping she would find her a place in the world
With her mind made up and tears in her eyes
It almost made her daddy cry
He said don’t forget to call when you get there girl.

Driving on that two lane road hoping she might find
A whole lot more waiting up ahead than what she left behind

Moving upstairs, downtown
Life’s too short to be hanging around
She’s eighteen and it’s time she got out of the wood
She’s getting out while the getting’s good

All bills paid and a room with a view
She’s unpacked a dish or two
She just got her phone turned on today
There’s a big, old world waiting just outside
As she’s thumbing through the classifieds
Looking for work and any old job’s okay

Driving on that cross-town freeway hoping she might find
A whole lot more waiting up ahead than what she left behind

Living upstairs, downtown
Life’s too short to be hanging around
She’s eighteen and it’s time she got out of the wood
She’s getting out while the getting’s good

Then she lost her job at the grocery store
And the wolf came knocking at the door
The red notice said they turned off her telephone
There’s nothing left for her to do so she’s packed up a thing or two
Loaded her car down, now she’s headed home

Driving on that two lane road hoping she might find
A whole lot more waiting up ahead than what she left behind

Does That Blue Moon Ever Shine On You – Toby Keith

Day by day, we let love just walk away
And I’ll be the first to say, I was glad to see it go
And day by day, ever since you went away
I’m finding I’m still missing you, and I just got to know

Does that blue moon ever shine on you
I wanna hold you close to me, feel just like it used to be
And baby, if you feel like I do
You can come to me
Does that blue moon ever shine on you

On my mind, you were right there all the time
I could search and never find someone that does me like you do
Here’s the part where I’m giving you my heart
I was a fool to let you go girl I just got to know

Does that blue moon ever shine on you
I wanna hold you close to me, feel just like it used to be
And baby, if you feel like I do
You can come to me
Does that blue moon ever shine on you

Night after night, I look to the stars
Wondering where you might be
And I’ve thought to myself, is that very same moon
Shining on you like it’s shining on me

Does that blue moon ever shine on you
I wanna hold you close to me, feel just like it used to be
And baby, if you feel like I do
You can come to me
Does that blue moon ever shine on you

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.

Get Out of My Car – Toby Keith

I like your banjo in there

Girl, you drank all my beer
And the whiskey’s all gone
I’m sittin’ here
Ready to get it on

You got me thinkin’ you won’t
You got me thinkin’ you might
And it’s 3 o’clock in the mornin’
And I can’t beat around the bush all night

We’ve already kissed
(We’ve already kissed)
We’ve already danced
(We’ve already danced)

You’re wonderin’ if
You ought to put on your shoes
Or pull down your pants
(Come on, pull down your pants)

What would it hurt?
Pull off that shirt
Babe, we’ve already come this far
Get out of your clothes
Or get out of my car

Whichever you choose
I’m ready to go
I could take you to the house, baby
Or I can drive it on home

We can do it right here
Or do it somewhere else
But make up your mind
Do something quick
Or I’m gonna do it myself

We’ve already kissed
(We’ve already kissed)
And we’ve already danced
(We’ve already danced)

You’re wonderin’ if
You ought to put on your shoes
Or pull down your pants
(Come on, pull down your pants)

What would it hurt?
Take off that shirt
Babe, we’ve already come this far
Get out of your clothes
Or get out of my car

We’re gonna drive around a little while then
Let’s do it over here in the middle, babe

We’ve already kissed
(We’ve already kissed)
We’ve already danced
(We’ve already danced)

And you’re wonderin’ if
You oughta pull off my boots
Or pull down your pants
(Come on, pull down your pants)

Hey, what would it hurt?
Take off that shirt
Babe, we’ve already come this far
Get out of your clothes
Or get out of my car
(Get out of my car)

I got out of my clothes
She got out of my car

What’s up, babe?
Bye, bye, boredom
