Emerson Drive Everyday Woman

You don’t put on a lot a make-up

You like to wear your hair pulled back

When the kids’ll call you come a runnin’

You always put yourself last

Most people would say

You’re an everyday woman

But you’re everything to me

You are so beautiful

You’re an angel I can see

And I’m gonna love you, I will love you

Everyday woman

How do you juggle this busy life

And still have something left for me

I’ve asked God why I’m the lucky man

Who gets to live in your loves strength

Maybe to this world

You’re an everyday woman

But you’re everything to me

You are so beautiful

You’re an angel I can see

And I’m gonna love you, I will love you

Everyday woman

And I’m gonna love you, I will love you

Everyday woman

Emerson Drive Devil Went Down To Georgia

The devil went down to Georgia

He was lookin’ for a soul to steal

He was in a bind cause he was way behind

And he was willin’ to make a deal

When he came across this young man

Sawin’ on a fiddle and playin’ it hot

And the devil jumped up on a hickory stump

And said “Boy let me tell you what

I guess you didn’t know it boy

I’m a fiddle player too

And if you care to take a dare

Well I’ll make a bet with you

Now you play pretty good fiddle, boy,

But give the devil his due

I’ll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul

‘Cause I think I’m better than you”

The boy said, “My name’s Johnny,

And it just might be a sin

But I’ll take this bet, you’re gonna regret,

I’m the best that’s ever been

Johnny rosin up your bow

And play your fiddle hard

Hell broke loose in Georgia

And the devil deals his cards

And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold

But if you lose the devil gets your soul

The devil opened up his case

And he said, “I’ll start this show”

And fire flew from his fingertips

As he rosined up his bow

When he pulled the bow across the strings

And it made an evil hiss

And a band of demons joined it

And it sounded somethin’ like this

Here we go

When the devil finished Johnny said,

“Well, you’re pretty good old son

But sit down in that chair right there

And let me show you how it’s done”

Fire on the mountain

Run, boys, run

The devil’s in the house of the rising sun

Chicken in the bread pan pickin’ out dough

Granny does your dog bite

No child no

Well, the devil bowed his head

Because he knew that he’d been beat

And he laid that golden fiddle

On the ground at Johnny’s feet

Johnny said, “Devil, come on back

If you ever want to try again

I done told you once you son of a gun,

I’m the best that’s ever been”

Fire on the mountain

Run, boys, run

The devil’s in the house of the rising sun

Chicken in the bread pan pickin’ out dough

Granny does your dog bite

No child no

Emerson Drive Looking Over My Shoulder

Hey, Yeah

I feel her hair slap in my face

It makes me smile

She slides her arms around my waist

Tighter every mile

Her lips are against my ear

I grab the clutch and find a higher gear

[Chorus]

She said, Don’t look back

I gotcha covered

Forget the past, we’ve got each other

And as I left the life before her far behind

She pulled a little closer

Looking over my shoulder

I check the mirror and catch her eye

She blows me a kiss

A round photograph reflecting

Just how right this is

I shouted I’m the king of the world

And I’ll be yours forever girl

[Chorus]

Over my shoulder

Over and over

[Chorus]

She said, Don’t look back

I gotcha covered

Forget the past, we’ve got each other

As we left the life before us far behind

She pulled a little closer

Looking over my shoulder

She said Don’t look back

I gotcha covered

Looking over my shoulder

Emerson Drive Till The Summer’s Gone

That windshields sun sure feels good

With the horses running underneath the hood

Got all day to be nowhere else but here

One hand on you, one hand on the wheel

Got them heartbreak kisses I’m dying to steal

Let’s put it in park till it’s dark in this field

And drop our love on into high gear

Don’t you feel it

Don’t it make you wanna sing along

Don’t it make you want to chase it all night long

Till the summer’s gone

Once those stars start coming out

That moon comes up and we let our guard down

And we go so far that you can’t turn around

No turning around can’t turn back now

Don’t you feel it

Don’t it make you wanna sing along

Don’t it make you want to chase it all night long

Till the summer’s gone

Don’t you feel it

Don’t it make you wanna sing along

Don’t it make you want to chase it all night long

Till the summer’s gone

Give me that kiss like it’s our last

Lay it on me like those waves that crash

Love me like July going by fast

Yeah it goes by fast, yeah way too fast

Don’t you feel it

Don’t it make you wanna sing along

Don’t it make you want to chase it all night long

Till the summer’s gone

Don’t you feel it

Don’t it make you wanna sing along

Don’t it make you want to chase it all night long

Till the summer’s gone

Emerson Drive Lemonade

Called in sick to the coffee shop

Said let’s go someplace the weather is hot

Bought two plane tickets and called a yellow cab

Drank all our money at beachside bars

Took pictures of each other smokin’ cheap cigars

Stole a blanket from the hotel room and slept on the sand

We held the world like a glass of lemonade

It tasted sweet

Oh, man we had it made

[Chorus:]

Didn’t we laugh, weren’t we brave

Wasn’t it cool actin’ like fools

With nothing in our way

Picture in a frame, deep blue sky

You and I stuck in time like

We would never fade

baby why’d we have to change

Did we get old or too grown up

To do anything just because

Just because we just don’t give a damn

Oh, when did we get so serious

What happened to that part of us

Baby can you help me out, I don’t understand

We held the world like a glass of lemonade

It tasted sweet

Oh man, we had it made

[Chorus]

Look at us in the photograph

So beautifully naive

I want it back

[Chorus]

Let’s call in sick and leave this town

Don’t matter where we go let’s just go now

I’m thirsty for a glass of lemonade

Emerson Drive Let It Roll

It all started from nothin’

Just a couple friends and dad’s guitar

Learnin’ songs in the basement

The Dirt Band and Restless Heart

I can’t say it’s been that easy

And I can’t say it’s been that hard

A million miles out the window

And it feels like we’ve yet to start

Let it roll, let it roll

Just keep on goin’

The road we leave behind

Let it roll, let it roll

Just keep on dreamin’

Of what we’re out to find

Let it roll, let it roll

Just keep believin’

This is not goodbye

We’ll keep you on our minds

As we’re rollin’ out tonight

As we’re rollin’ out tonight

Yeah

Seven nights in smokey bar rooms

Three hundred days away from home

But everything changes with a hit song

Still makin’ fans coast to coast

Let it roll, let it roll

Just keep on goin’

The road we leave behind

Let it roll, let it roll

Just keep on dreamin’

Of what we’re out to find

Let it roll, let it roll

Just keep believin’

This is not goodbye

We’ll keep you on our minds

As we’re rollin’ out tonight

Let it roll, let it roll

Just keep on goin’

The road we leave behind

Let it roll, let it roll

Just keep on dreamin’

Of what we’re out to find

Let it roll, let it roll

Just keep believin’

That this is not goodbye

We’ll keep you on our minds

As we’re rollin’ out tonight

As we’re rollin’ out tonight

Let it roll, let it roll, let it roll, let it roll

Oh, just keep believin’

As we’re rollin’ out tonight

Emerson Drive A Boy Becomes A Man

I was only twelve years old

The day was warm my heart went cold

Momma said your Daddy’s gone

Son you’re gonna have to grow up fast

The two of us is all we have

I need you to be strong

That’s the day a boy became a man

Every broken road and stepping stone

Has made me who I am

I learned to love, I learned to cry

Even how to say good-bye

And I’m still trying to understand

How a boy became a man

She was only seventeen

Prettiest girl I’d ever seen

On a blanket underneath the stars

By the river we got swept away

In just one night my whole life changed

Should have never gone that far

That’s the day a boy became a man

Every broken road and stepping stone

Has made me who I am

I learned to love, I learned to laugh

How to give someone all I have

And I’m still trying to understand

How a boy became a man

On the day we swore our love

In front of God and everyone

That’s the day a boy became a man

With an angel walking by my side

And a baby in my hand

I learned to laugh, I learned to cry

To just be thankful for this life

And I think I finally understand

How a boy becomes a man
