Little Bit Of Life – Craig Morgan

A little bit of guitar; a little bit of truck.
A little bit of hound-dog an’ a little bit of luck.
A little bit of bacon, a little bit of beans;
A little bit of you lovin’ up on me.
A little bit of how it’s s’posed to be:
A little bit of life.

A little bit of back-seat, a little bit of moon.
A little bit of radio goin’ boom, boom, boom.
A little bit of sugar, a little bit of spice,
A little bit of nasty, a little bit of nice.
A little bit of how it’s s’posed to be:
A little bit of life.

I breath in, I breath out.
Yeah. sleepin’ all night with the windows down.
Up in the mornin’, stirrin’ around.
Drink a pot of coffee an’ I head off to town.
Work, work, work, all day long,
Crank it up, back it up, bring it on home,
Supper on the table an’ I eat me a bite,
Then we snuggle on the porch by the pale moonlight,
A little bit of me an’ you doin’ all right:
A little bit of life.

A little bit of tractor, a little bit of farm.
A little bit of cornfield, an’ a little bit of barn.
A little bit of c’mon, a little bit of play.
A little bit of “yee-haw” in the hay.
A Dixie cup of home-made wine:
A little bit of life.

I breath in, I breath out.
Yeah. sleepin’ all night with the windows down.
Up in the mornin’, stirrin’ around.
Drink a pot of coffee an’ I head off to town.
Work, work, work, all day long,
Crank it up, back it up, bring it on home,
Supper on the table an’ I eat me a bite,
Then we snuggle on the porch by the pale moonlight,
A little bit of me an’ you doin’ all right:
A little bit of life.

A little bit of back-porch, a little bit of swing.
A little bit of wind-chimes a-going ding-a-ling.
A little bit of TV, a little bit of couch;
Popcorn smellin’ up the house.
A-la-mode on a little slice of home-made pie.
A little bit of life.

I breath in, I breath out.
Yeah. sleepin’ all night with the windows down.
Up in the mornin’, stirrin’ around.
Drink a pot of coffee an’ I head off to town.
Work, work, work, all day long,
Crank it up, back it up, bring it on home,
Supper on the table an’ I eat me a bite,
Then we snuggle on the porch by the pale moonlight,
A little bit of me an’ you doin’ all right:
A little bit of life.

A little bit of me an’ you doin’ all right:
A little bit of life.
Yeah, a little bit of life.

A little bit of guitar; a little bit of truck.
A little bit of hound-dog, a little bit of luck.
A little bit of back-seat, a little bit of moon.
A little bit of radio: boom, boom, boom.
A little bit of bacon, a little bit of beans;
A little bit of you lovin’ up on me.
A little bit of c’mon, a little bit of play.
A little bit of yee-haw in the hay!

Free And Easy (Down The Road I Go) – Dierks Bentley


Pair of boots and a sack of clothes
Free and easy down the road I go
Hangin’ memories on the high line poles
Free and easy down the road I go
Free and easy down the road I go

Ragweed’s rockin’ on the radio
Free and easy down the road I go
So I keep rollin’ like an old banjo
Free and easy down the road I go

Got the sun shinin’ on me like a big spotlight
So I know everything is gonna be alright

Ain’t no tellin’ where the wind might blow
Free and easy down the road I go
Livin’ life like a Sunday stroll
Free and easy down the road I go
Free and easy down the road I go

If you only get to go around one time
I’m gonna sit back and try to enjoy the ride

I could make a million or wind up broke
Free and easy down the road I go
Can’t take it with you when you go so
Free and easy down the road I go
Someday I know it’s gonna take me home so
Free and easy down the road I go
Free and easy down the road I go

Small Town Southern Man – Alan Jackson

Born the middle son of a farmer
And a small town southern man
Like his daddy’s daddy before him
Brought up workin’ on the land
Fell in love with a small town woman
And they married up and settled down
Natural way of life if you’re lucky
For a small town Southern man

First there came four pretty daughters
For this small town Southern man
Then a few years later came another
A boy, he wasn’t planned
Seven people living all together
In a house built with his own hands
Little words with love and understanding
From a small town Southern man

(Chorus)
And he bowed his head to Jesus
And he stood for Uncle Sam
And he only loved one woman
He was always proud of what he had
He said his greatest contribution
Is the ones you leave behind
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man

Callous hands told the story
For this small town Southern man
He gave it all to keep it all together
And keep his family on his land
Like his daddy, years wore out his body
Made it hard just to walk and stand
You can break the back
But you can’t break the spirit
Of a small town Southern man

(Chorus)
And he bowed his head to Jesus
And he stood for Uncle Sam
And he only loved one woman
He was always proud of what he had
He said his greatest contribution
Is the ones you leave behind
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man

Finally death came callin’
For this small town Southern man
He said it’s alright ’cause I see angels
And they got me by the hand
Don’t you cry, and don’t you worry
I’m blessed, and I know I am
‘Cause God has a place in Heaven
For a small town Southern man

(Chorus)
And he bowed his head to Jesus
And he stood for Uncle Sam
And he only loved one woman
He was always proud of what he had
He said his greatest contribution
Is the ones you leave behind
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man
