Garth Brooks Walking After Midnight

I go out walkin’ after midnight

Out in the starlight

Just like we used to do

I’m always walkin’ after midnight

Searching for you

I walk for miles along the highway

Well, that’s just my way

Of sayin’ I love you

I’m always walkin’ after midnight

Searchin’ for you

I stop to see a weeping willow

Cryin’ on his pillow

Maybe he’s cryin’ for me

And as the skies turn gloomy

Night winds whisper to me

I’m as lonesome as I can be

I go out walkin’ after midnight

Out in the moonlight

Just a-hopin you may be

Somewhere a-walkin’ after midnight

Searchin’ for me

I stop to see a weeping willow

Cryin’ on his pillow

Maybe he’s cryin’ for me

And as the skies turn gloomy

Night winds whisper to me

I’m as lonesome as I can be

I go out walkin’ after midnight

Out in the moonlight

Just a-hopin you may be

Somewhere a-walkin’ after midnight

Searchin’ for me

I go out walkin’ after midnight

Searchin’ for you

Garth Brooks The Night I Called The Old Man Out

The dining room fell silent

I can’t believe what I just said

I just told my dad he’s full of it

And I watched his face turn red

And I should’ve said, “I’m sorry”

But I matched him shout for shout

I can still hear that screen door slammin’

The night I called him out

He said, “Son it’s gonna hurt me more than it hurts you”

But somehow I couldn’t help but have my doubts

‘Cause I’d seen my own dear brothers crawl back in the house

Each time they called the old man out

Fist to fist and eye to eye

Standin’ toe to toe

He would’ve let me walk away

But I just would not let it go

Years of my frustration

Had let me to this night

Now he’ll pay for all the times that he’s been right

He said, “Son it’s gonna hurt me more than it hurts you”

But somehow I couldn’t help but have my doubts

‘Cause I’d seen my own dear brothers crawl back in the house

Each time they called the old man out

It was over in a minute

That’s when I realized

The blood came from my mouth and nose

But the tears came from his eyes

And in memory of that fateful night

I know the greatest pain was his

And I just pray some day I’m half the man he is

He said, “Son it’s gonna hurt me more than it hurts you”

But somehow I couldn’t help but have my doubts

‘Cause I’d seen my own dear brothers crawl back in the house

Each time they called the old man out

Just like my own dear brothers

I crawled back in the house

The night I called the old man out

Garth Brooks Bang! Bang!

She worked the window at the Desert Sands

Clyde was a dealer who was gifted with the sleight of hand

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

Their petty thieving and conniving ways

Would never get ’em to that beach house of their dreams someday

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

But every afternoon at four that armored car rolled to the door (like before)

Bang! Bang!

The doors swing open and the pick-up begins

Bang! Bang!

The guard knocks, she lets him in

Bang! Bang!

Two bangs of cash hit the floor

The guard asks her out, she turns him down and shows him the door (once more)

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

They must have run through it a thousand times

But something happened on the evening of their perfect crime

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

It seems the set up and the switch all play

But there’s a problem when it gets down to the get away

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

So, to complete their master plan

They’re gonna need a pick-up man (meet Jo-Ann)

Bang! Bang! Bang!

It’s four on Monday and the hustle begins

Bang! Bang! Bang!

The guard knocks, she lets him in

Bang! Bang! Bang!

The bags of cash hit the floor

Clyde’s hiding out, he swaps ’em out

The guard’s out the door (they score)

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Two big bags of money and they’re both feeling light

She sees the guard is stopping, she knows when something’s not right

When he turns to find he’s standing face to face now with her

She says “how ’bout dinner Friday

And if you’re good I’ll let you have dessert”

Bang! Bang!

The guard is happy and he’s gone in a flash

Bang! Bang!

She grabs Clyde and the cash

Bang! Bang!

They see Jo-Ann and jump in

They were last seen heading West and never heard from again

The end

Bang! Bang!

Amen

Bang! Bang!

Garth Brooks Rollin’

She was born to a mother trucker

Raised behind the wheel

So you can blame it on the highway

For the way she can’t sit still

She says life is like a windshield

It ain’t no rear view mirror

The only way to get where you’re goin’

Is find that higher gear

And keep it

Rollin’

Life’s gonna run you over if you don’t get goin’

She said I wanna fell the earth move under me

Movin’ with the motion of a melody

Oh I get the blues if the rhythm ain’t got no soul

You got to keep it

Rollin’

Well I knew that I was in trouble

When she told me that talk was cheap

Said if you’re tired get on the sofa

‘Cause the bed’s no place to sleep

Then she reached down and she kissed

Lord it knocked me to my knees

And I knew if I was gonna get naked

I was gonna have to roll up my sleeves

And keep it

Rollin’

Love was gonna run me over if I didn’t get it goin’

She said I wanna feel the earth move under me

Movin’ with the motion of a melody

Boy I get the blues if the rhythm ain’t got no soul

You got to keep it

Rollin’

So I talked her into gettin’ married

But she wouldn’t hang up her wheels

I was afraid I’d take a back seat

To the way the highway feels

But each day she’s pullin’ over

More than she used to

She knows love is like the highway

The main thing you gotta do

Is keep it

Rollin’

Life’s gonna run you over if you don’t get goin’

She said I wanna fell the earth move under me

Movin’ with the motion of a melody

Oh I get the blues if the rhythm ain’t got no soul

You got to keep it

Rollin’

Life’s gonna run you over if you don’t get goin’

She said I wanna fell the earth move under me

Movin’ with the motion of a melody

Oh I get the blues if the rhythm ain’t got no soul

You got to keep it

Rollin’

Garth Brooks Same Old Story

While they dance

How she holds him

Pulls him close

And loves him so

While he dreams of another

and counts the days

Until he lets her go

Same old story

That everybody knows

It’s one heart holdin’ on

One letting go

While they ride

Lord, he tells her

How they two

Will settle down

But she only hears the highway

And a voice

In some other town

And the harder

He holds her

The more she slips away

Same old story

That everybody knows

It’s one heart holdin’ on

One letting go

Garth Brooks Cold Like That

Yeah, the high road’s a little too high to take

I wanna walk a mile the easy way

Wanna take a page from your guiltless book

Wanna let myself off the hook today

Let my conscience have a break

[Chorus:]

I wish I could be cold like that, then it wouldn’t hurt so bad

I could be the train for a change you could be the one tied to the track

Baby, wouldn’t it be nice just to just plow through life

Fall in love, cause a crash, walk away without a scratch and crush hearts like ice

I wish I could be cold like that, so cold like that

Yeah, you burn so hot ’til you get what you want

Guess you got what you wanted

Then your love just stopped and the temperature dropped

Like your heart was haunted

[Chorus:]

I wish I could be cold like that, then it wouldn’t hurt so bad

I could be the train for a change you could be the one tied to the track

Baby, wouldn’t it be nice just to just plow through life

Fall in love, cause a crash, walk away without a scratch and crush hearts like ice

I wish I could be cold like that, so cold like that, so cold like that

I wish I could get off on a goodbye

Be the bad guy on the other side of the tears, of the tears

I wish I could be cold like that, so cold like that

I could be the train for a change you could be the one tied to the track

Baby, wouldn’t it be nice just to just plow through life

Fall in love, cause a crash, walk away without a scratch and crush hearts like ice

I wish I could be cold like that, so cold like that, so cold like that

I wish could be cold like that, so cold like that

Garth Brooks Everytime That It Rains

Stuck in an airport in Austin, all of the flights are delayed

And as the rain keeps fllin’ the mem’ries keep callin’ me back

To another time and place

Back to a rainy dy in Oklahoma, she was workin’ at this roadside cafe

And it was just her and me and looked like it would be

At least ’till the storm rolled away

I played “Please Come to Boston” on the jukebox

She said hey that’s my favorite song

The next thing I knew the song was through

And we were still dancin’ along

And with that look in her eyes she pulled from me

Then she pulled off that apron she wore

And with her hand in mine we turned off the sign

And locked the rain outside the door

Every time that it rains I can hear her heart callin’

It rains, I can see that dress fallin’

The storm clouds roll on, still the memory remains

Every time that it rains

One late rainy night I got a phone call

So I went back to see her again

And through the dnce we both stumbled and with the buttons we fumbled

So we decided just to call it at friends

If we ever had a thing now it’s over and only the memory remains

Of a roadside cafe on a September day

I relive every time that it rains

Every time that it rains I can hear her heart callin’

It rains, I can see that dress fallin’

The storm clouds roll on, still the memory remains

Every time that it rains

Garth Brooks If Tomorrow Never Comes

Sometimes late at night

I lie awake and watch her sleeping

She’s lost in peaceful dreams

So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark

And the thought crosses my mind

If I never wake up in the morning

Would she ever doubt

The way I feel about her in my heart

If tomorrow never comes

Will she know how much I loved her

Did I try in every way to show her every day

That she’s my only one

And if my time on earth were through

And she must face this world without me

Is the love I gave her in the past

Gonna be enough to last

If tomorrow never comes

‘Cause I’ve lost loved ones in my life

Who never knew how much I loved them

Now I live with the regret

That my true feelings for them never were revealed

So I made a promise to myself

To say each day how much she means to me

And avoid that circumstance

Where there’s no second chance to tell her how I feel

‘Cause if tomorrow never comes

Will she know how much I loved her

Did I try in every way to show her every day

That she’s my only one

And if my time on earth were through

And she must face this world without me

Is the love I gave her in the past

Gonna be enough to last

If tomorrow never comes

So tell that someone that you love

Just what you’re thinking of

If tomorrow never comes

Garth Brooks Face To Face

There was a bad boy in the school yard

Waited on you every day

Seemed like every time you turned around

Well he was standin’ in your way

Well he broke your glasses

The girls all laughed

As he pushed you to the floor

But then you stood up one day knowin’

You couldn’t stand it anymore

And your gentle hand was finally clenched in rage

You were face to face

Face to face with the devil that you’ve been dreadin’

Eye to eye finally has arrived

But bad as it was, well now brother wasn’t it better

Dealin’ with him face to face

Your date showed up with flowers

And you thought your dreams had come

But with every passing hour

You felt it come undone

Then the night exploded and you begged him no

But he forever changed your life

And now he waits a judge and jury

Thinkin’ you’ll break down inside

And with a finger you can put his fists away

And you’re face to face

Face to face with the devil that you’ve been dreadin’

Eye to eye finally has arrived

But bad as it was, well little sister wasn’t it better

Dealin’ with him face to face

‘Cause it’ll never go away

Until the fear that you are runnin’ from is finally embraced

Drivin’ by the grave yard

On a wicked winter’s eve

And you’re wonderin’ why a man of faith

Is whistlin’ nervously

Then you stop the car

And you hold your heart

‘Cause you finally realize

Hell, the devil ain’t in the darkness

He’s a’rattlin’ ’round inside

And with folded hands you truly start to pray

And you’re face to face

Face to face with the devil that you’ve been dreadin’

Eye to eye finally has arrived

But bad as it was, well now brother wasn’t it better

Dealin’ with him face to face

‘Cause it’ll never go away

Until the fear that you are runnin’ from is finally embraced

Face to face

Garth Brooks That Girl Is A Cowboy

It was a hundred and seven

We were heading to town

She had her sleeves rolled up

And the windows rolled down

That girl is a cowboy

Robert Earl was singing out

The “Buckin’ Song”

With every word that Keen was bringing

She was singing along

That girl is a cowboy

Sometimes the best cowboys ain’t cowboys at all

She’s got my back

Even when it’s against the wall

When I need a friend

She’s the guy I call

‘Cause sometimes the best cowboys

Ain’t cowboys at all

so I took her tout to show her

how to rope and ride

I can’t believe that it was me

That wound up broke and tied

The girls is a cowboy

So that night I decided

We should paint the town

I made it home although

I really don’t remember how

That girl is a cowboy

Sometimes the best cowboys ain’t cowboys at all

She’s got my back

Even when it’s against the wall

When I need a friend

She’s the guy I call

‘Cause sometimes the best cowboys

Ain’t cowboys at all

There’s just something that a cowgirl has

Ain’t no cowboy’s got

Man she’s something when she’s one of the boys

But something else

Any time she’s not

Sometimes the best cowboys ain’t cowboys at all

She’s got my back

Even when it’s against the wall

When I need a friend

She’s the guy I call

‘Cause sometimes the best cowboys

Ain’t cowboys at all
