Chris Stapleton Sometimes I Cry

There are days that I can walk around like I’m alright,

And I pretend to wear a smile on my face,

And I could keep the pain from comin’ out of my eyes,

But sometimes, sometimes,

Sometimes I cry,

Cry,

Sometimes I cry,

When I can’t do nothing else.

Everybody keeps tellin’ me to move on,

Oh but I can’t seem to go anywhere without you,

Cause ever since, and every single night you been gone,

Sometimes, sometimes,

Sometimes I cry,

Cry,

Sometimes I cry,

When I can’t do nothing else

Sometimes I cry

Sometimes I cry

Sometimes I cry

When I can’t do nothing else.

Chris Stapleton Millionaire

They say love is more precious than gold

It can’t be bought, and it can’t be sold

I got love, love to spare

That made me a millionaire

I got a woman with eyes that shine

Down deep as a diamond mine

She’s my treasure, so very rare

She makes me, a millionaire

When we ride around, ride around this old town

In a beat up car, with the windows down

People look at her and they look at me

And say that boy is sure living in luxury, sweet luxury

Because love is more precious than gold

It can’t be bought, no, never could be sold

I got love, enough to share

And that made me a millionaire

When her kisses fall from everywhere

Like riches on a millionaire

When my pockets are empty and my cupboard is bare

I still feel like a millionaire

Because love is more precious than gold

It can’t be bought, no, and it can’t be sold

I got love, enough to spare

That makes me a millionaire

Chris Stapleton Broken Halos

Seen my share of broken halos

Folded wings that used to fly

They’ve all gone wherever they go

Broken halos that used to shine

Angels come down from the heavens

Just to help us on our way

Come to teach us, then they leave us

And they find some other soul to save

Seen my share of broken halos

Folded wings that used to fly

They’ve all gone wherever they go

Broken halos that used to shine

Broken halos that used to shine

Don’t go looking for the reasons

Don’t go asking Jesus why

We’re not meant to know the answers

They belong to the by and by

They belong to the by and by

Seen my share of broken halos

Folded wings that used to fly

They’ve all gone wherever they go

Broken halos that used to shine

Broken halos that used to shine

Broken halos that used to shine

Broken halos that used to shine

Chris Stapleton Them Stems

This morning I smoked them stems

Yeah, that’s the kind of shape I’m in

I’m in a bad, bad way again

‘Cause this morning I smoked them stems

My dealer, he’s been out of town

And that’s really got me down

I hope he ain’t up in the pen again

‘Cause this morning I smoked them stems

This morning I smoked them stems

Yeah, that’s the kind of shape I’m in

I’m in a bad, bad way again

‘Cause this morning I smoked them stems

My baby, she done said goodbye

And all I ever do is cry

There ain’t nothing round the house now to make me grin

‘Cause this morning I smoked them stems

This morning I smoked them stems

Yeah, that’s the kind of shape I’m in

I’m in a bad, bad way again

‘Cause this morning I smoked them stems

I called up this buddy of mine

‘Cause we always have a real good time

I was hoping I could bum a toke off of him

But this morning he smoked them stems

This morning I smoked them stems

Yeah, that’s the kind of shape I’m in

I’m in a bad, bad way again

‘Cause this morning I smoked them stems

Yea, this morning I smoked them stems

Chris Stapleton Fire Away

Honey load up your questions

And pick up your sticks and your stones

And pretend I’m a shelter for heartaches that don’t have a home

Choose the words that cut like a razor

And all that I’ll say is

[Chorus:]

Fire away

Take your best shot

Show me what you got

Honey, I’m not afraid

Rear back and take aim

And fire away

Well, I wish I could say

That I’ve never been here before

But you know and I know

That I’ll always come back for more

Your love might be my damnation

But I’ll cry to my grave

[Chorus x2]

Chris Stapleton More Of You

When I think of you and the first time we met

And I heard the sound of your sweet gentle voice

My heart took me over and gave me no choice

And right then I knew

[Chorus:]

It makes me want more of you

Again and again

I fall more in love with you

Than I’ve ever been

From the moment you wake me up

Till you kiss me goodnight

Everything that you do

It makes me want more of you

When I look at you now that years have gone by

I think of the memories that time can’t erase

And all of the smiles that you’ve brought to my face

Your love’s been so true

[Chorus]

When I leave this earth you’ll be holding my hand

And it gives me comfort to know you’ll be there

And I’ll thank the Lord for the love that we share

You’re heaven to me

[Chorus]

Everything that you do

It makes me want more of you

Chris Stapleton When The Stars Come Out

I was looking for a change of scene

You were looking at a magazine

It was red carpets and limousines

And the grass seemed so much greener

All we wanted was to get there fast

So, we packed up everything we had

Running on hope and a tank of gas

Like dreams ain’t just for dreamers

We couldn’t wait to leave that life behind

Trying to find salvation in that city limit sign

[Chorus:]

And one of those LA nights

When the stars come out

Oh, the stars come out and shine

And they burn so bright

They drown the downtown lights

When the stars come out

Oh, when the stars come out

Everybody’s, somebody, someday

Everybody’s got a part to play

Everybody’s trying to find a way

To say, what needs saying

Everybody’s got a friend of a friend

Somebody that can get you in

Begging angels for a sin

In a game that we’re all playing

You and I, we’re gamblers holding cards that we can’t see

And I’m betting on you, you’re betting on me

[Chorus]

Down on the freeway, the sun is out of sight

And I got a feeling tonight might be the night

Yeah, tonight might be the night

[Chorus]

Chris Stapleton Tennessee Whiskey

Used to spend my nights out in a barroom

Liquor was the only love I’d known

But you rescued me from reachin’ for the bottom

And brought me back from being too far gone

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey

You’re as sweet as strawberry wine

You’re as warm as a glass of brandy

And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

I’ve looked for love in all the same old places

Found the bottom of a bottle always dry

But when you poured out your heart I didn’t waste it

‘Cause there’s nothing like your love to get me high

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey

You’re as sweet as strawberry wine

You’re as warm as a glass of brandy

And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

[Instrumental]

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey

You’re as sweet as strawberry wine

You’re as warm as a glass of brandy

And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey

Tennessee whiskey

Tennessee whiskey

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey

Tennessee whiskey

Tennessee whiskey

Chris Stapleton Up To No Good Livin’

Wish I could come home from workin’

And not have her checking my breath

I’m tired of her turning her questions

Into the Gettysburg Address

There’s no reason why she shouldn’t trust me

The fact that she don’t makes me mad

Can’t count all the times that I’ve begged her

Honey, just let my past be the past

I used to drink like a fish and run like a dog

Done a whole lotta shit not permitted by law

People called me the Picasso of painting the town

I’ve finally grown up

I’ve finally changed

And that someone I was

Is somebody I ain’t

But she finds it hard to believe that she’s turned me around

You know I’ll probably die before I live all my

Up to no good livin’ down

Gave up on bringing her flowers

That just kept making things worse

I ain’t been guilty of nothing

But being the man she deserves

I used to drink like a fish and run like a dog

Done a whole lotta shit not permitted by law

People called me the Picasso of painting the town

I’ve finally grown up

I’ve finally changed

And that someone I was

Is somebody I ain’t

But she finds it hard to believe that she’s turned me around

You know I’ll probably die before I live all my

Up to no good livin’ down

I used to cuss like a sailor and howl at the moon

I woke up some mornings with I-don’t-know-who

But I never dreamed back then I’d have to pay for it now

You know, I’ll probably die before I live all my

Up to no good livin’ down

Yeah, I’d hate to die before I live all my

Up to no good livin’ down

Chris Stapleton Drunkard’s Prayer

I get drunk and talk to God

I say I’m sorry for all the things I’m not

And I mean every word I say

And I promise I can change

When I get drunk and talk to God

When I talk to God I tell him why we’re through

I tell him all the things I did and didn’t do

I’ll say, “I can’t be alone”

And he’ll say, “Son, you’re on your own”

‘Cause when I talk to God I tell him why we’re through

I wish that I could go to church but I’m too ashamed of me

I hate the fact it takes a bottle to get me on my knees

And I hope he’ll forgive the things you ain’t forgot

When I get drunk and talk to God

When I talk to God I thank him for the time

All those precious years that you were mine, all mine

I know he’s a busy man, he’ll help me if he can

So when I talk to God I thank him for the time

I wish that I could go to church but I’m too ashamed of me

I hate the fact it takes a bottle to get me on my knees

And I hope he’ll forgive the things you ain’t forgot

When I get drunk and talk to God

Oh, when I get drunk and talk to God
