Leavin' A Lonely Town-Easton Corbin

Mama's standin' at the old screen door
With a dish rag in her hand
Cryin' like I never seen her cry before
Like she don't understand why

I'm leavin' a lonely town
I'm leavin' a lonely town

My old man he's workin' on his truck
Ain't never had much to say
Just shakes my hand and wishes me luck
And watches me walk away, yeah

I'm leavin' a lonely town
I'm leavin' a lonely town

Drivin' one last time down Main Street
Past the cafe on the square
Go slow by the window 'cause I know she's
Waitin' tables in there, but

I'm leavin' a lonely town
She knows, I'm leavin' a lonely town
I'm leavin' a lonely town
Lord, I'm leavin' a lonely town

Mama's standin' at the old screen door
Cryin' like I never seen her cry before
Lonely town, lonely town
Lonely town

That'll Make You Wanna Drink-Easton Corbin

Smokey bar
Mediocre band playin’
Old familiar songs, hit after hit
Neon lights
Cuttin’ through the smoke a new Minnesota
Fats is chalkin’ up his stick
Nine ball in the corner pocket,
twenty dollars gone
Two Bubba’s standin’ toe to toe about
to get it on

[Chorus:]
That’ll make you wanna drink
Say, what the heck
Turn up a cold one
Throw down your paycheck
A room full of good times, laughter and pain
That’ll make you wanna drink
That’ll make you wanna drink

Country boy
Out there on the dance floor with mud
on his boots
He brought straight from the farm
Older man
Gold chains around his neck and a pretty
young thing hangin’ on his arm
I bet he’s got a couple of them little blue pills
She ain’t gonna, but for drinks all night she’ll
make him think she will

[Repeat Chorus]

The reason I came in here is I screwed
up real bad
She’s made it mighty clear, she ain’t never
comin’ back

[Repeat Chorus]

That’ll make you wanna drink

Let Alone You-Easton Corbin

It was Sunday afternoon
I was sunk in my recliner
Football game was on
Tampa Bay and Carolina
I wasn't payin much attention
The volume down not watchin it at all
This house was like an ice box
Had all the curtains drawn
I had it more like a hotel room and less like a home
It's been so quiet around here lately
I wasnt thinkin anyone would call

Let alone you
All the way from Dallas
Out of the blue
Sayin that you missed us
And time and distance made you see
You were lost without me
How did you know I'd finally hit the bottom
An all time low
Suddenly forgotten
The sound of your voice on the line
Made fate turn circles on a dime
Just when I thought I'd never find somebody new
Let alone you

Now here I am at the baggage claim
A nervous wreck waitin on your plane
Ring in my hands checkin my watch
I never dreamed 48 hours ago
I'd be standin here waitin on anyone
No not anyone

Let alone you
All the way from Dallas
Out of the blue
Sayin that you missed us
And time and distance made you see
You were lost without me
How did you know
I'd finally hit the bottom
An all time low
Suddeny forgotten
The sound of your voice on the line
Made fate turn circles on a dime
Just when I thought I'd never find somebody new
Let alone you
Let alone you

A Lot To Learn About Livin'-Easton Corbin

Stepped off the plane down in Cabo
Just meaning to stay for a week
I got a funny sensation about this vacation
The second the sand hit my feet
Taxi driver took my two bags
He saw me looking at my watch
He said, you won't need that here 'cause time disappears
In paradise there ain't no clocks

[CHORUS:]
You got alot to learn about livin'
It's a different world down here
Our biggest problem's decidin' what fish we're fryin'
Does it go with tequila or beer

He dropped me off at the hotel
I took a u-turn into the bar
I sat down on a stool out by the pool
Next to a lady smoking a Cuban cigar
I ordered a drink and took out my cell phone
I tried to make a call to L.A.
Dang thing wouldn't work, I started to curse
Bartender said, I bet it can wait

[REPEAT CHORUS]

I, yi, yi...change is in the air
Now, I, yi, yi...ain't got a care

Six months later I'm driving a taxi
I got a Hawaiian shirt and a tan
Pick up some guy in a Brooks Brothers tie
I say, it's time to loosen up man

[REPEAT CHORUS]

There's alot to learn about livin'
It's a different life down here
Our biggest problem's decidin' what fish we're fryin'
Does it go with tequila or beer

Don't Ask Me About A Woman-Easton Corbin

I was sittin with him on his front porch swing
Soaking up wisdom and Grandma's sweet tea
Listening to his stories, man, he'd done it all
His tour in the Army and his wilder days
Raising my daddy and bailing his hay
He cut off a twist of tobacco, stuck it in his jaw
Cocked back his hat with a sideways grin and
gave me that ole wink
He said, I can tell you something 'bout
most anything

But don't ask me about a woman
All I know is boy they're something
They're tender and they're tough
Can break it down and lift you up
Don't ask me about a woman
That's some complicated stuff
They ain't made to figure out
They're just made to love

He said, boy I've lived nearly eighty years
There's a lot of know how between these ears
But when it comes to your grandma
I'm still your age
It took me a long, long time to learn
Loving a woman is full of left turns
The more they change, the more they stay
the same
Son, it's been that way since the
beginning of time
We're behind the wheel but just along for
the ride

But don't ask me about a woman
All I know is boy they're something
They're tender and they're tough
Can break it down and lift you up
Don't ask me about a woman
That's some complicated stuff
They ain't made to figure out
They're just made to love

Fast forward ten years it's Saturday night
She's changed three times, says her hair
ain't right
My mind reels back to the time and place
When I heard my grandpa say

Don't ask me about a woman
Boy, that's some complicated stuff
They ain't made to figure out
They're just made to love
Now I know what he's talkin about
They're just made to love

Someday When I'm Old-Easton Corbin

Someday when I'm old
I'll pull up to the store
and park wherever I want to.

I'll buy a box of moonpies
and flirt with the cashier
yeah, like I was still 22

I'll bitch about $18
for a gallon of gas
down at the Texaco
Someday when I'm old

Yeah, someday when I'm old
I'll keep chewing gum in my front pocket
and cold Dr Pepper in the fridge

I'll let my daughter get mad
say I'm ruining their supper
when I give that stuff to my grandkids

Now I realize that somethings
they just don't matter
and how fast it all goes
Someday when I'm old

That clock just starts tickin
Oh the day that you're born
And no matter how much time you get
You always want more

Someday when I'm old,
I'll be the only one
who remembers you young, and beautiful
Your dark hair falling on that pillow case
all the secrets we shared, all the love that we made...

And I'll hold on to those precious moments
like pieces of gold...
someday when I'm old.

This Far From Memphis-Easton Corbin

She said goodbye in Tallahassee
I just crawled in my truck
Set my mind on Miami
And my sights on better luck

[Chorus:]
Ain't a man deserves to hurt like this
It's a lonely place, it sure is
Guess I never really knew the blues
Ever got this far from Memphis

All the night life and the beaches
Couldn't soothe my achin' soul
And how I ended up in Key West
God and the liquor only know

[Repeat Chorus]

Now I've run out of road
So I guess my only hope
Is to trade this truck for a boat

[Repeat Chorus]

Ever got this far from Memphis
Man, I'm a long ways from Memphis

The Way Love Looks-Easton Corbin

Baby I know I've told you
But I ain't told you today
When you walked in with that sleepy eyed grin
There's something I've been meaning to say

I like the way love looks
The way it looks on you

When you pencil in all your makeup
When youre rubbing it off at night
Getting out of them jeans while youre giggling at me
there's no mistaking I

I like the way love looks
The way it looks on you

Lying on the very next pillow
Smiling like you do
Sharing your deepest secrets
Baby I'm telling you

I like the way love looks
The way it looks on you

When you fall asleep in front of the tv
When youre cryin over some sad book
When you beg and plead to go fishin w me
And I have to bait your hook

Roll With It-Easton Corbin

I got my old guitar and some fishin poles
So baby fill that cooler full of something cold
Don't ask just pack and we'll hit the road runnin
honey what do you say

I got just enough money and just enough gas
So pick a place on the map we can get to fast
Where the white sandy beach meets water like glass
And if the tide carries us away

Baby we'll roll with it
Won't think about it too much
Baby let's just go with it
And get out of this ordinary everyday rut

And we get swept away by one of those perfect days
When the sun is sinking low at dusk
And wind up a little deeper in love
Baby lets roll with it

We get so caught up in catching up
Trying to pay the rent trying to make a buck
That don't leave much time for time for us
And aint life too short for that

So open up that bag of pig skins you bought
At the Exxon station the last time we stopped
And you kick back baby and dance in your socks
On the windshield to some radio rock

And we'll roll with it
Won't think about it too much
Baby let's just go with it
And get out of this ordinary everyday rut

And we get swept away by one of those perfect days
When the sun is sinking low at dusk
And wind up a little deeper in love
Baby lets roll with it

And it won't be no thing if it starts to rain
And we have to wait it out in the truck
We might wind up a little deeper in love
So baby lets roll with it

I Can't Love You Back-Easton Corbin

I can love you in the morning
I can love you all day
I can love you even more when I get home
I can love you every second
to the ends of the earth
Where needing you's the only thing that's on
my broken one track mind

[Chorus]
Girl, I love you crazy
It comes so easy, after all we had
I could love you with all my heart
But the hardest part is
I just can't love you back

I could write a thousand letters
Call a hundred times a day
Or try to drown my sorrow at the bar
I could go down to the church
Get on my knees and pray
But it still won't change the way things really are
Won't bring you back again

[Chorus]

I can love you for all I'm worth
To the ends of the earth
But I just can't love you back

A Little More Country Than That-Easton Corbin

[Bridge 1]
Imagine a dirt road full of potholes
With a creek bank and some cane poles catchin channel cat
I'm a little more country than that

[Bridge 2]
Picture a small town with an old hound
Layin out front of the courthouse
While the ol men chew the fat
I'm a little more country than that

[Chorus]
I just want to make sure you know just who your gettin under this ol hat
Cause girl I'm just not the kind of two time or play games behind your back
I'm a little more country than that

[Bridge 3]
Think of hank song with a days gone
With a steel ride this old song that sends chills up your back
I'm a little more country than that

[Bridge 4]
If you want a brick home in a school zone
With the doors locked and alarms on
Girl you're way off track
I'm a little more country than that

[Chorus]
I just want to make sure you know just who your gettin under this ol hat
Cause girl I'm just not the kind of two time or play games behind your back
I'm a little more country than that

[Bridge 5]
Yea I'm sure that you've heard those three words from lovers but they fell flat
But this ring ain't something that I mean to give you and then take back
I'm a little more country than that

I'm a little more country than that [Repeat 2x]
