Aaron Tippin Lovin’ Me Into An Early Grave

Always wanted one to put me to the test

A hot blooded woman that could love a man to death

I got what I wanted but Lord I gotta say

She’s lovin’ me into an early grave

Lovin’ me into an early grave

I get up in the morning I’m headed for the door

The last kiss leads to a thousand more

I’m late for work but I can’t get away

She’s lovin’ me into an early grave

Lovin’ me into an early grave

Finally found a reason to live

But Lord she’s gonna kill me as good as she is

But if you’ve gotta go well it’s the only way

She’s lovin’ me into an early grave

Lovin’ me into an early grave

Now I wouldn’t trade places with any man alive

But man alive it’s hard to survive

But I’m gonna keep trying till my dying day

She’s lovin’ me into an early grave

Lovin’ me into an early grave

Finally found a reason to live

But Lord she’s gonna kill me as good as she is

But if you’ve gotta go well it’s the only way

She’s lovin’ me into an early grave

Lovin’ me into an early grave

Lovin’ me into an early grave

Lovin’ me into an early grave

Aaron Tippin Twenty-Nine And Holding

Oh, she’s tender but she’s tough

And still willing to love

If there’s a man enough to be her man

But right now her hands are full

Fighting back the tears and the wolves

But she keeps smiling just as hard as she can

She’s twenty-nine and holding the world on her shoulders

They’re all counting on mama

And she ain’t about to let them down

There’s no time to worry about turning thirty

When you’re twenty-nine and holding

The world on you shoulders

Yes, the one who she once loved

Just didn’t have the guts

To be a lover or father or much of a man

Yeah, he just had to have his space

So she put him in his place

Out in the road with his suitcase in his hand

Well, it’s the kids and it’s the job

It’s the kitchen and it’s the mop

Hey, it’s the life of a woman that’s on her own

And lord, I just gotta say

That we all ought to be ashamed

If our biggest trouble is just turning old and gray

She’s twenty-nine and holding the world on her shoulders

Aaron Tippin Movin’ On

Big wheel’s rollin’; big wheel’s rollin’, movin’ on

Big wheel’s rollin’; gotta keep ’em goin’

Big wheel’s rollin’, movin’ on

The white line is a lifeline to the nation

And men like Kix and Ronnie make it move

Livin’ like a gipsy, always on the go

Doin’ what they best know how to do

Jammin’ gears has got to be a fever

‘Cause men become addicted to the grind (the grind)

It takes a special breed to be a truck drivin’ man

And a steady hand to pull that load behind

Big wheel’s rollin’; big wheel’s rollin’, movin’ on

Big wheel’s rollin’; gotta keep ’em goin’

Big wheel’s rollin’, movin’ on

Movin’ on, yeah

All night country music keeps ’em goin’

Kix and Ronnie keep on movin’ on

Hey, big hot cup of coffee, is waitin’ up ahead

An’ the rhythm of the highway hums along

Jammin’ gears has got to be a fever

‘Cause men become addicted to the grind

It takes a special breed to be a truck drivin’ man

And a steady hand to pull that load behind

Big wheel’s rollin’; big wheel’s rollin’, movin’ on

Big wheel’s rollin’; gotta keep ’em goin’

Big wheel’s rollin’, movin’ on

Yeah, oh you been drivin’ all night long

Movin’ on

Why don’t you let me take the wheel for a while

What’s that?

Hey, buddy, aren’t you supposed to have your eyes open?

We’re gone

Aaron Tippin You’ve Got To Stand For Something

Now Daddy didn’t like trouble, but if it came along

Everyone that knew him knew which side that he’d be on

He never was a hero, or this county’s shinin’ light

But you could always find him standin’ up

For what he thought was right

He’d say, “You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything

You’ve got to be your own man not a puppet on a string

Never compromise what’s right and uphold your family name

You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything”

Now we might’ve been better off or owned a bigger house

If Daddy had done more givin’ in or a little more backin’ down

But we always had plenty just living his advice

“Whatever you do today you’ll have to sleep with tonight”

He’d say, “You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything

You’ve got to be your own man, not a puppet on a string

Never compromise what’s right, and uphold your family name

You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything”

And I know that things are different than they were in Daddy’s day

But I still believe what makes a man really hasn’t changed

You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything

You’ve got to be your own man, not a puppet on a string

Never compromise what’s right, and uphold your family name

You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything

You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything

Aaron Tippin Without Your Love

I was born on the wrong of the city

Desperation in my mother’s eyes

Factory whistle would wake me in the morning

At night the sirens sang my lullaby

Fought my way out of the blue collar jungle

Heart of leather and hands of steel

Thought I was too much of a sole survivor

To ever feel the way I feel

But I don’t want to live without your love

I don’t want to live without your love

I can’t take another night

And I’ve lost the will to fight

I don’t want to live without your love

Dance with the Devil in a bottle of whiskey

I paid the fiddler for every song

You’d think with all the lessons learned the hard way

I’d know enough to be strong

Aaron Tippin A Door

We’ve got a problem we can’t get around

It’s gotten too big to just tear down

We built a wall out of thin air

Now I’m over here and you’re over there

I’m afraid that there’s no two ways to it

This wall could be our undoing

Can’t raise the ceiling, can’t lower the floor

Only thing left is to build a door

A door ain’t nothing but a way to get through a wall

That’s all

A window won’t work and a ladder stretched that tall

Might fall

You get a hammer and I’ll get a saw

And we’ll give this wall what-for

What we need between you and me is a door

We might get sweaty, might get dirty

A couple of splinters would be well worth it

We’ll hang it right here, level and plumb

And then we’ll shake hands on a job well done

Once that door’s standing open

We’ll get some communication going

We’ll reach out, and the next thing we know

This wall’ll come down like Jericho

A door ain’t nothing but a way to get through a wall

That’s all

A window won’t work and a ladder stretched that tall

Might fall

You get a hammer and I’ll get a saw

And we’ll give this wall what-for

What we need between you and me is a door

A door ain’t nothing but a way to get through a wall

That’s all

A window won’t work, and a ladder stretched that tall

Might fall

You get a hammer and I’ll get a saw

And we’ll give this wall what-for

What we need between you and me is a door

Aaron Tippin Girl On The Billboard

Who is the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in a field near the big old highway

Rollin’ down the highway in my Jimmy, haulin’ freight

From Chicago to St Louis, Lord, I see her every day

Oh, a double clutchin’ weasel like me can hardly ever get

A girl to look at him that way

Smilin’ like the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

Wow, what a girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

I bet it wouldn’t take her very long to be gone

If someone would pull a dirty trick, take her towel away

I’d slow my Jimmy to 20

That’s how many wrecks I see there every day

Caused by the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

Oh, I love the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

And I guess I’m gettin’ bolder ’cause I’d rather kiss and hold her

Than just keep lookin’ at her every day

At 4:45, coffee-drinkin’, eatin’ time

Jimmy shimmied, while I woke up the artist that painted the display

Of the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

All right

Doggone, that girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

Sleepy headed, painter said the girl wasn’t real and I better get on my way

On Route 66 from the billboard to Chicago

You’ll find tiny pieces of my heart scattered every which a-way

Shattered by the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

Who was the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

Who is the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

Who is the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

Well, who is the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

Yeah, who is the girl wearin’ nothin’ but a smile and a towel

In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway

Yeah

Aaron Tippin I’ve Got A Good Memory

It was a quarter till three on the day that we met

Exactly nine o’ five on the night that she left

Well I tried my best but I still can’t forget

How good she used to be

And it’s just too bad I’ve got a good memory

Good memories are hard to leave behind

I’ve got a bushel basket of ’em running through my mind

I still love her but she don’t love me

And it’s just too bad I’ve got a good memory

Lord, it’s just too bad I’ve got a good memory

She had a front page smile and a watch-me walk

Left a love light burning that I can’t turn off

Her first impression left a lasting thought

That keeps coming back to me

And it’s just too bad I’ve got a good memory

Good memories are hard to leave behind

I’ve got a bushel basket of ’em running through my mind

I still love her but she don’t love me

And it’s just too bad I’ve got a good memory

Lord, it’s just too bad I’ve got a good memory

And it’s just too bad I’ve got a good memory

Lord, it’s just too bad I’ve got a good memory

Aaron Tippin Standin’ On The Promises

A million reasons why I could

But only one why I won’t

‘Cause the one who’d probably never know

Is the reason that I don’t

I can’t say that I’m not tempted

I’m just like any other man

But when I walk out of here alone woman

I hope you understand

She’s standin’ on the promises

That she gave to me

So I’m standin’ on the promises

I promised her I’d keep

It’d be so easy for anyone

To justify the wrong

Fall right into your arms

And say to hell with being strong

But there’s one thing I know for sure

She’d never play this kind of game

And for her faith in out love

I’ll do her the same ’cause

She’s standin’ on the promises

That she gave to me

So I’m standin’ on the promises

I promised her I’d keep

Yes she’s standin’ on the promises

That she gave to me

So I’m standin’ on the promises

I promised her I’d keep

Aaron Tippin You’ve Always Got Me

You say you finally found your Mr. Right

He’s got you flying like a dime store kite

Well I’ll be waiting here on the ground

Look me up if he lets you down

You’ve always got me to fall back on

A rabbit in your hat, an ace in the hole

It might help to know you’ve got a Plan B

Whatever else happens you’ve always got me

I gave you my heart and my heart is true

I won’t take it back no matter what you do

You’re gonna have to carry it permanently

No matter who else loves you,

You’ve always got me

Another iron in the fire,

Another horse in the barn

Another map to your treasure

An extra safety net – another hedge on your bet

A little bit for good measure

It might help you to know you’ve got a Plan B

Whatever else happens you’ve always got me
