Aaron Tippin When Country Took The Throne

Just a skinny little Mississippi railroad man

That loved to sing and play

He brought his music from the cotton fields

To the the hillbilly hall of fame

Thank God for Jimmie Rodgers

Chisel his name in the cornerstone

I just wish he could’ve lived to see the day

When country took the throne

Now a million songs have come and gone

Since we made that humble start

About neon nights, everyday life

Love and broken hearts

And more and more folks

Kept tuning in and turning on

Now I can proudly say that I saw the day

When country took the throne

Now from Carolina to California, Texas to New York

They can’t get enough of this country stuff

And they’re screaming for more

We painted the town with that grand old sound

And the whole world sang along

Yes, I was there the day

When country took the throne

Now, no one knows what the future holds

But I bet my best guitar

There’ll be a jukebox jumping on Jupiter

And a honky-tonk on Mars

In the last frontier they’ll stand and cheer

The best music ever known

They’ll celebrate that age old day

When country took the throne

Now from Carolina to California, Texas to New York

They can’t get enough of this country stuff

And they’re screaming for more

We painted the town with that grand old sound

And the whole world sang along

Yes, I was there the day

When country took the throne

I said I was there the day

When country took the throne

Aaron Tippin Always Was

I look at you and I remember

The way I felt on the day we met

That same old feeling washes over me

It’s hard to forget

Nothing has ever changed for me babe

Nothing changes for you

I still want you just as much as I did

When I said “I do”

I’m still wrapped up in the ring around you finger

Without you baby, I would be lost

I’m telling you the truth

I’m still as much in love with you as I always was

I’m a slave to your every desire

I worship the ground where you walk

I’m telling you the truth

I’m still as much in love with you as I always was

You still stir up that old desire

I can feel it now as we speak

Nothin’ I ever felt before

Prepared me for a love this deep

Yeah, I’m still crazy about you baby

In my heart and in my soul

Yeah, I’m still mesmerized

By two brown eyes and a band of gold

Oh, I’m telling you the truth

I’m still as much in love with you as I always was

As I always was

Aaron Tippin Bayou Baby

I wanna be loved by you bayou baby

Nobody else but you bayou baby

I searched this world from end to end

I finally found where I should’ve always been

Right by you bayou baby

I followed the wind from town to town

Never had a mind of settling down

Falling in love just wasn’t my style

But that was before I saw your smile

I wanna be loved by you bayou baby

Nobody else but you bayou baby

I searched this world from end to end

I finally found where I should’ve always been

Right by you bayou baby

Gonna make my mark stake my claim

Live right here ’til my dying day

Close as I can to wherever you are

‘Til the day comes I win your heart

I wanna be loved by you bayou baby

Nobody else but you bayou baby

I searched this world from end to end

I finally found where I should’ve always been

Right by you bayou baby

I wanna be loved by you bayou baby

Nobody else but you bayou baby

I searched this world from end to end

I finally found where I should’ve always been

Right by you bayou baby

I wanna be loved by you bayou baby

Nobody else but you bayou baby

I searched this world from end to end

I finally found where I should’ve always been

Right by you bayou baby

Talkin’ ’bout right by you bayou baby

Right up against you girl, bayou baby

Aaron Tippin My Blue Angel

Somewhere out there in the smoky air

Where the night is neon blue

Surrounded by strangers, she don’t know the dangers

One drink could lead her to

And if she falls, it’s all my fault

For doin’ a good woman wrong

I can’t be far behind her

Oh, Lord, help me find her

Before my angel is gone

Looking for my blue angel

The same one that flew from my arms last night

If you see my blue angel

Tell her that heaven without her feels like hell tonight

Last night when she left I told myself

That she wouldn’t go too far

Now I’m not so sure how long her tears

Could last in a stranger’s arms

She’s wounded I know and feeling so low

She could fall at anytime

I don’t know what I’d do if I were to lose

That precious angel of mine

Looking for my blue angel

The same one that flew from my arms last night

If you see my blue angel

Tell her that heaven without her feels like hell tonight

Yes, tell her heaven without her feels like hell tonight

Aaron Tippin Silent Night

Silent night, holy night

All is calm, all is bright

‘Round yon virgin, mother and child

Holy infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace

Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night

Shepherds quake at the sight

Glory streams from heaven afar

Heavenly hosts sing ‘Alleluia’

Christ, the Savior is born

Christ, the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night

Son of God, love’s pure light

Radiant beams from thy holy face

With the dawn of redeeming grace

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth

Aaron Tippin Country Boy’s Tool Box

Sit down honey gotta have us a talk

Your man is a little upset

There’s a couple of things that’s been missing

And I ain’t found ’em yet

I ain’t pointing no fingers

Ain’t layin’ no blame

And I don’t wanna lose my cool

But you just don’t fool

With a country boy’s tool

Tool box

Now did I hear you right

You loaned ’em out

To the neighbor down the road

Hey I’d just as soon

You’d let him have my old bird dog

Or my favorite fishing pole

Now there’s one little lesson

That they just don’t teach in school

You just don’t fool with a country boy’s tool

Tool box

It was handed down

From my daddy’s dad

Back in nineteen forty-two

And they may be rusty

And they might be old

But they’re kinda like

My family jewels

Honey I love you

But there’s something else too

That I care about a heck of a lot

Oh you just just don’t fool

With a country boy’s tool

Tool box

Now I don’t wanna hurt

Your tender heart

And I really do understand

That a friend in need

Is a friend indeed

And you offer a helping hand

But if something gets broke

And it’s gotta be fixed

Well I don’t blame you know who

‘Cause you just don’t fool

With a country boy’s tool

Tool box

Aaron Tippin Working Man’s Ph.D.

You get up every morning ‘fore the sun comes up

Toss a lunchbox into a pickup truck

A long, hard day sure ain’t much fun

But you’ve gotta get it started if you wanna get it done

You set your mind and roll up your sleeves

You’re workin’ on a working man’s Ph.D.

With your heart in your hands and the sweat on your brow

You build the things that really make the world go around

If it works, if it runs, if it lasts for years

You bet your bottom dollar it was made right here

With pride, honor and dignity

From a man with a working man’s Ph.D.

Now there ain’t no shame in a job well done

From driving a nail to driving a truck

As a matter of fact I’d like to set things straight

A few more people should be pullin’ their weight

If you wanna cram course in reality

You get yourself a working man’s Ph.D.

When the quittin’ whistle blows and the dust settles down

There ain’t no trophies or cheering crowds

You’ll face yourself at the end of the day

And be damn proud of whatever you’ve made

Can’t hang it on the wall for the world to see

But you’ve got yourself a working man’s Ph.D.

Now there ain’t no shame in a job well done

From driving a nail to driving a truck

As a matter of fact I’d like to set things straight

A few more people should be pullin’ their weight

If you wanna cram course in reality

You get yourself a working man’s Ph.D.

Aaron Tippin Cold Chill

I get a cold chill

Guess I always will

Every time your memory fills my mind

I go back in time

To a young girl and a reckless young man

It tears me up ’cause I know I am the one

Who tore us apart

And still, I get a cold chill in my heart

I’ve learned to say I’m sorry

And admit when I’ve been wrong

Just too bad I couldn’t have learned that

Lot of lonely years ago

This ole heart is my reminder

What I did and didn’t do

So ’til the day they lay me under

One thing will still be true

I get a cold chill

Guess I always will

Every time your memory fills my mind

I go back in time

To a young girl and a reckless young man

It tears me up ’cause I know I am the one

Who tore us apart

And still, I get a cold chill in my heart

Oh and still, I get a cold chill in my heart

Aaron Tippin I Wonder How Far It Is Over You

I parked my car beside the highway and I didn’t lock the doors

Left a note there with the keys if it cranks, well friend, she’s yours

And I struck out across Texas, gonna walk it line to line

Now I’m halfway cross New Mexico, but you’re still on my mind

And this road that’s going nowhere just leads me on and on

As I ask myself with every step will I ever be alone

I wonder just how far it is over you

Is there no place I go that you don’t come too

When I left Tennessee, I thought we were through

Now I wonder how far it is over you

I was deep in California when I finally made a friend

And it was me and that old hobo till you showed up again

Then he ran out of liquor and I’ve run out of time

I’m standing by the ocean, but you’re still on my mind

And I’m staring at the water so blue and deep and wide

Bet a man could lose a memory over on the other side

I wonder just how far it is over you

Is there no place I go that you don’t come too

When I left Tennessee, I thought we were through

Now I wonder how far it is over you

I parked my car beside the highway and I didn’t lock the doors

Left a note there with the keys if it cranks, well friend, she’s yours

Aaron Tippin My Kind Of Town

This is my kind of town

I ain’t never seen nothin’ like it

In all my traveling ’round

If this old highway ever gives me up

And I think about settling down

Well, this is my kind of town

There ain’t no place on God’s green earth

I’d rather be right now

Folks around here sure seem to know

What living’s all about

I could hang around here forever

Lord, I feel so much at home

When it comes time for me to leave

It’ll be so hard to go ’cause

This is my kind of town

I ain’t never seen nothin’ like it

In all my traveling ’round

If this old highway ever gives me up

And I think about settling down

Well, this is my kind of town

Now, I ain’t the kind to just muscle in

On someone else’s world

But from what I’ve seen it seems to me

They got lots of extra girls

And if I could find me one of them

And a little house nearby

Well, I’d park these boots, hang this hat

And stay here ’til I die ’cause

This is my kind of town

I ain’t never seen nothin’ like it

In all my traveling ’round

If this old highway ever gives me up

And I think about settling down

Well, this is my kind of town

If this old highway ever gives me up

And I think about settling down

Well, this is my kind of town
