 COUNTRY LYRICS With Brake Bars (The Collection) Kindle Edition
HER GIRLFRIEND SAID
Her girlfriend said this poor & lonely fool
Said to let her go she’s breakin’ all the rules
Her girlfriend said your heart is tellin’ lies
She kissed away my tears told me not to cry

hook:
But now her girlfriend’s gone
Left me all alone
My eyes can finally see
Too late just misery

Her girlfriend said true love is endlessly
Sometimes it’s blind surely you will see
Her girlfriend said stand & be a man
Look inside yourself see that you are grand

hook:
But now her girlfriend’s gone
Left me all alone
My eyes can finally see
Too late just misery

Her girlfriend said that she was the one
The sunshine of my day when my clouds were gray
Her girlfriend said open your eyes & see
Surely you can see your happiness was in me

hook:
But now her girlfriend’s gone
Left me all alone
My eyes can finally see
Too late just misery

STICKS & STONES
Someone once asked me if I feel the pain
Have I been broken hearted left out in the rain
They think my glory has given me the upper hand
That I'm special, not the average man

hook:
I can’t tell you how I broke down & cried
I can’t tell you how I struggled to survive
I can’t tell you how I flirted with insanity
I can’t tell you how it almost got the best of me
Cause in a world of sticks & stones
A man gotta’ hold his own
He can’t cry

When it comes to emotions I’m just like you
Sometimes I struggle don’t know what to do
I get weary, and I get weak
But I’m determined not to fall to defeat

hook:
I can’t tell you how I broke down & cried
I can’t tell you how I struggled to survive
I can’t tell you how I flirted with insanity
I can’t tell you how it almost got the best of me
Cause in a world of sticks & stones
A man gotta’ hold his own
He can’t cry

HER SHOES
She slid them under my bed, forever was the words she said
She held me with those eyes, God! I could have died
She gave my heart a kiss, cupid couldn’t have missed
I fell so deeply in love, she fit me like a glove

hook:
Her shoes were the kind like the joke in school
Her shoes were the kind on a barfly stool
Her shoes were the kind that stayed one night
Her shoes were the kind that broke all the rules

I feared & I dread all the things my friends said
The neighbor came from next door, out the back was the score
The mailman turned beet-red, when I caught him in my bed
I guess I should have known, her history was so long

hook:
Her shoes were the kind like the joke in school
Her shoes were the kind on a barfly stool
Her shoes were the kind that stayed one night
Her shoes were the kind that broke all the rules

I know I was a fool, beyond the exceptional rule
Cause back she was again, with a promise we would win
She amends my heart with passion, smoky steamy nights
Blinded by the light, she wooed her way in right

hook:
Her shoes were the kind like the joke in school
Her shoes were the kind on a barfly stool
Her shoes were the kind that stayed one night
Her shoes were the kind that broke all the rules

FOREVER WAS A ONE NIGHT STAND

Verse one:
Forever was a one night stand like a million dollar divorce
Forever was a one night stand like a cowboy without a horse
Forever was a one night stand like a gamble on ten grand
Forever was a one night stand like your woman to another man

She came to me one night like the devil with a deal
Signed my blood on the dotted line & took away my will
Took me for a million & my favorite horse
Ran away with my best friend after my divorce
Left me with a bill on a diamond that cost ten grand
I guess that’s what you get, when you shack up with a one-night stand

Verse two:
Forever was a one night stand when you sittin’ up on the stand
Forever was a one night stand when the judge is your X girl’s man
Forever was a one night stand when you end up in the can
Forever was a one night stand when you find that she ant playin’

She came to me one night she-devil body tight
Gave me heaven in a sin a hand that I couldn’t win
Had me on the lame for alimony
Arrested at my mother's house had the neighborhoods see
Turned my life inside out a shameful mockery
I guess that’s what you get, when you shack up with a one-night stand

Verse three:
Forever is a one night stand like a boy playin’ a man
Forever is a one night stand like a fool with a beer in his hand
Forever is a one night stand when you lead with the little man
Forever is a one night stand when a player gets caught playin’

ROADHOUSE COWBOY
Blazin’ up a trail on a Saturday night
Double fisted cowboy lookin’ for a fight
Fumed by alcohol that had me rarin’ ta’go
Ten minutes later I fired up the show

hook one:
Roadhouse cowboy lookin’ for a fight
Rev up my guitar cause I’m gonna stay all night
Pound some country music into these here walls
Consume a few more beers & have myself a ball
Roadhouse cowboy lookin’ for a fight
Got the music going, so you know I’m feelin’ right
Got cowboys & cowgirls like cattle on the floor
Won’t believe what I saw when I looked up at the door

Everyone got quiet when my guitar hit the floor
My wife looked ten feet tall standin’ at the door
A stud on her arm his mouth gaped in alarm
His eyes filled with fright, Lord help this man ta’night

hook one:
Roadhouse cowboy lookin’ for a fight
Rev up my guitar cause I’m gonna stay all night
Pound some country music into these here walls
Consume a few more beers & have myself a ball
Roadhouse cowboy lookin’ for a fight
Got the music going, so you know I’m feelin’ right
Got cowboys & cowgirls like cattle on the floor
Won’t believe what I saw when I looked up at the door

Been had my suspicions, that’s why I blazed a trail
Actin’ like a man on his way ta’ hell
Couldn’t believe the rumors that whispered in the night
But they kept me going, I was lookin’ for a fight

hook one:
Roadhouse cowboy lookin’ for a fight
Rev up my guitar cause I’m gonna stay all night
Pound some country music into these here walls
Consume a few more beers & have myself a ball
Roadhouse cowboy lookin’ for a fight
Got the music going so you know I’m feelin’ right
Got cowboys & cowgirls like cattle on the floor
Won’t believe what I saw when I looked up at the door

Picked up my guitar finally feelin’ free
Toasted a beer cause she was history
Waved good-bye as she turned & hit the door
Draggin’ her stud that two-bit worthless whore

hook two:
Roadhouse cowboy lookin’ for a fight
Rev up my guitar cause I’m gonna stay all night
Pound some country music into these here walls
Consume a few more beers & have myself a ball
Roadhouse cowboy lookin’ for a fight
Rev up my guitar cause I’m gonna stay all night
Pound some country music into these here walls
Consume a few more beers & have myself a ball
