Stephanie F I love these guys! And they're from my neck of the woods! Country doesn't have to be from the south and it rocks hard in the northwest! Favorite track: Cars, Guitars and Honkytonk Bars.

Track Name: Piece of Heaven
well she's my truck drivin', trailer livin,
whiskey drinkin' piece of heaven
dancin out there tonight

Justin boots and a carhartt hat
wrangler jeans that fit like that
tiny top thats way too tight
stare at her i think i might

she's rollin mudders on her lifted truck
she's got her .40 cal loaded for luck
all the boys, they gather 'round
when they hear her rollin' into town

well come on down and take your chances
i've got a 1,000 bucks if she dances
with any man here but me
come on boys i bet you'll see

That she's my truck drivin, trailer livin,
whiskey drinkin', piece of heaven
dancin' out there tonight
well you know you want her but i got her
not a girl in here thats hotter
i'm takin' her home tonight

when she mounts that bull, off she goes
it's the bar room rodeo
she throws her arm up in the air
and she rides that thing like she dont care

she's my truck drivin, trailer livin,
whiskey drinkin', piece of heaven
dancin' out there tonight
well you know you want her but i got her
not a girl in here thats hotter
i'm takin' her home tonight
Track Name: Backyard Superstars
Monday mornin' puttin up a fight
It's everything I've got gettin' up on time
I'm off to work in my blue collared shirt
And I'm just not sure of how much longer I can play
The price is too high I'm not sure I wanna pay
The money aint good, I do it cause I should
Yeah but tonight, We're gonna do it right

'Cause I'm livin the dream on a Friday night
No money in my pocket but thats alright
Cause the weekend's here
I've got my friends, I've got my beer
Gonna build us a fire, gonna play some guitar
Sing some good songs about the way things are
This is who we are, Backyard Superstars

Well, Grandpa always told me to work real hard
I've got 25 bruises and 15 scars
That's the life I live, that's the way it is
And I break my back forty hours a week
I've got debt to my ears with the credit companies
But that's alright, I'm gonna win that fight
Cause tonight I'm gonna do it right

Keep on pushin this is the life thats sure worth livin'
Keep on movin' put my head down and roll on through it
Keep on pushin this is the life thats sure worth livin'
Cause when times get tough and life gets rough
I've got a backyard sittin' right here
Track Name: Jesus and Moonshine
Daddy preached and mama cried
On Sunday morning and Wednesday night
Songs of faith and words of fire
He's coming back with an angel choir

When Jesus died up on that tree
I hope he died for good ol boys like me.
Jesus moonshine and the hope of glory.
It aint pretty but its my story
A guilty saint who just can't get it right.
But the good book says my future's looking bright.
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
When I hear that moonshine bottle slammin down.

The county judge had that look
As I swore my oath on the holy book.
I told the truth but I'd done the crime.
I knew I'd have to do some time.

When Jesus died up on that tree
I hope he died for good ol boys like me.
Jesus moonshine and the hope of glory.
It aint pretty but its my story
A guilty saint who just can't get it right.
But the good book says my future's looking bright.
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
When I hear that moonshine bottle slammin down.

Before my God I stand
A tired and broken man
Who tried to do what's right

Jesus moonshine and the hope of glory.
It aint pretty but its my story
A guilty saint who just can't get it right.
But the good book says my future's looking bright.
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
is what they'll sing when they lay me down
while they pass that moonshine bottle all around

Jesus moonshine and the hope of glory.
It aint perfect but its my story.
A guilty saint i'll someday get it right
with an angel choir walking in the light
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
is what they'll sing when they lay me down
while they pass that moonshine bottle all around
Track Name: Cars, Guitars and Honkytonk Bars
I like cars guitars, and Honkey Tonk Bars
Half naked women and a good cigar
Playin poker 'till the sun comes up
Spendin' all my money, pressin' all my luck
I aint in the mood for a bar room fight,
I'm just lookin' to have one hell of a night

Well I like my trucks like I like my women
Big and beefy with a torqued out engine
Might take a little while to get her goin'
But once you got her started man she don't stop rollin'

Well I aint from the south but I know how to get down
I don't chug Rebel Yell but I'll straight shoot Crown
Show them southern girls a damn good time
And here real soon we'll be feelin' fine

Well I like cars, guitars, honkey tonk bars
Lifted Chevy trucks and howlin at the stars
Dancin' 'round a fire in a malted hops haze
Tax man is comin' for the rest of my pay
But it's Friday night, I'm goin' out to play

Well I start my night with some whiskey sippin'
Prime my pump for some all night with some drinkin'
Momma tried to teach me but I never did learn
I still play with fire just to see if it burns
Track Name: She Looks like Home
Brown haired girl in the bed of my truck, old red road
Sun tanned legs and that sunset sky, movin slow
Johnny Cash on an 8 track tape,
Dancing there on my tailgate
Could've been that cherry wine
But I prayed that night that she'd be mine
She looks like home, she looks like home

Home aint where the river runs
Home aint where my old dog lies
The only place of peace I've found
Is in those big brown eyes
I may never find a place
Where I'll always be
But I know I've found my way back home
When she's lying next to me
She looks like home, She looks like home

A thousand miles to our new town, so far to go
Feelin' like we left behind, the ones we know
But I picture her in that summer dress,
Mason jars and the sunday guests
Throw it in to that next gear,
Leave those miles in the mirror
She looks like home, she looks like home

Starin in those big brown eyes, only three days old
Thinkin' 'bout how far we've come, still movin slow
Little fingers and little toes,
all the things you've come to know
We look like home, we look like home
Track Name: Burn the map
Lets fill up the tank and hit the road
Me and you baby off we go
I don't know where we're goin'
Or who we'll see
It seems like a good idea, just you and me

Well I got no money but tell me
Is that anything new
Well I'm ready to go anywhere baby
As long as I'm next to you

We've been dreamin of this forever
It's better now than never
Well lets go right now don't waste no time
You know I'm yours and I know you're mine
Lets get lost in each other

Well we might go far, we might go short
Hell why not lets go to New York, New York
Or maybe Memphis, how bout LA
We're gonna burn the map baby
Where we stop is where we stay
Track Name: One lane road
Dreamin' big, in a little town
Not sure what I wanna be
But I know it just aint here
This one horse town is a one lane road
To the mills and the fields where our daddy's go
And I know, this aint the place for me
Old man passin' by says I see you're dreamin' big
I've seen that look before,
Let me tell you what I did

Here I am in this big old town
Everywhere I see a dream
In the midst of million words
People everywhere with somethin' to say
Lookin' for a break and a hope of fame
And I know, this is the place for me
Old man passin' by says I see you're dreamin' big
I've seen that look before,
Let me tell you what I did

I headed back down that one lane road
To the only home I've ever known
To the front porch swing and the song bird on it's pirch
Where the cotton wood trees shade the green meadows
And the farmers maher stands to welcome me home
To the songs of grace, the picnics after church
I found my home on a one lane road
I found my home on a one lane road

Nothin' left of my youthful dreams
Forgot who I used to be
In the midst of this big old town
I sold my soul to a man in a suit
I lost myself in the heat of pursuit and I know
this aint the place for me
Old man passing by says I see your dreams are dead
I've seen that before, let me tell you what I did
Track Name: New best friend
When I first saw your face and your pretty green eyes
Well I knew I had to have you, no matter what the price
Things were great for the short time that we shared
But girl you know it's true what you did just aint fair
But let me say this before I go too far
I'm gonna miss you, but I'm goin' to the bar.

Whiskey is my new best friend
Good old Evan Williams, I'm glad I found you again
In the time we had girl things were right
But I find myself sittin here tonight
With whiskey as my new best friend

Oh you told me that you'd never stray
I believed it up until today
A text of all things just lettin' me know
Things weren't workin' and well you gotta go
Well girl have fun, have a good life
I hope things for you turn out alright
As for me I'm here with my buddies
All were doin' is a chuggin and a chuggin

Well girl I gotta thank you for openin' my eyes
If there's one thing that you did for me
You helped me realize
That girls are nothin' but trouble
But it aint that way with liquor
And tonight will be the night of my life
I never will remember
Track Name: My first love song
I've been hummin' since before I could talk
I've been singin' since before I could walk
I've been strummin' since my teenage years
Songs of drinkin, cryin' and tears
But you're my first love song

I've heard Waylon, Jones and Strait
Singin their tunes of love and fate
But in this moment I can finally see
That because of you, there's a song in me

You're my first love song
And I love the way we sound
When I say I love you
Every night when the sun goes down
You're my first love song
And I charish every note
I'll be singin along as the years come and go
You're my first love song

You're my sanity on a crazy day
The light of my life that shows me the way
I never knew love could sound like this
Track Name: Marine to the Core (Raleigh's song)
When I wake up in the morning
And I look at the sun
I thank God I'm still alive
After all the crazy things I've done
All the friends that I've known
And the ones that I've lost
The ones who went there
And they paid the cost to be free
Yeah, yeah, the cost to be free
Yeah, yeah, the cost to be free

When i wake up in the morning
And I look at the sun
I thank God you're on the other side
Smiling down from up above
Well I'm glad I had the honor to know you like I did
It's a shame God took you.
Seems like you were just a kid
Yeah, yeah, yeah, the cost to be free
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Well you didn't deserve the fate you got
Lord knows we all cried when we heard you got shot
Well your familys left here all alone
But your memory, it will live on.
When I look to the flag, well what do I see,
Marine to the core and I will always be
When I look to the flag, well what do I see,
I'm Marine to the core and I will always be
