Jon Pardi Rainy Night Song

It sure is pourin’ down tonight

It hasn’t stopped since nine

And it’s poundin’ on the roof

Where under it I used to sleep with you

So good but not this time

We’ve gone so far apart since goodbye

And I couldn’t feel more alone tonight

And you’re the only thing that’s on my mind

[Chorus:]

And the thunder cries

And lightnin’ strikes

That’s when I would hold you tight

And say everything’s gonna be alright

Everything’s gonna be alright

I’d make you laugh to see you smile

I’d get real close and whisper goodnight

And I’m layin’ down thinkin’ ‘bout

All the things we could do

‘Cause this rainy night’s no fun

Without you

Yeah I should be cleanin’ my closet

Fixin’ that drippin’ water faucet

Anything to keep my mind from runnin’ back to you

Instead I’m lookin’ up at the ceilin’

With that same old missing you feelin’

Wonderin’ if you’re thinkin’ the same thing too

[Chorus:]

And the thunder cries

And lightnin’ strikes

That’s when I would hold you tight

And say everything’s gonna be alright

Everything’s gonna be alright

I’d make you laugh to see you smile

I’d get real close and whisper goodnight

And I’m layin’ down thinkin’ ‘bout

All the things we could do

‘Cause this rainy night’s no fun

Without you

Yeah I know we had to end it baby

We’re pretty good at drivin’ each other crazy

But I will always love you

[Chorus:]

And as the thunder cries

And lightnin’ strikes

That’s when I would hold you tight

And say everything’s gonna be alright

Everything’s gonna be alright

I’d make you laugh to see you smile

I’d get real close and whisper goodnight

And I’m layin’ down thinkin’ ‘bout

All the things we could do

‘Cause this rainy night’s no fun

Without you

Just ain’t no fun without you

Jon Pardi That Man

I know that all we’ve ever known

Is how to be the best of friends

And hangin’ out and cuttin’ up

Ain’t as easy as it’s been

You know I’ve always loved you girl

Aw but never quite like this

Been waitin’ so long to right what’s wrong

And taste your kiss

[Chorus:]

And when you wanna be wanted

And you need to be needed

When you wanna move on

‘Cause you want somebody

Who’s nothing like he is

You know I’ve always been waiting

And I guess what I’m saying

Is I am that man

You know it’s killin’ me inside

Watching you go through

The truth of all his lies

Girl, I think it’s time you knew

That I’m here to pick you up

And I won’t let you down

Girl, whenever you’re ready

I’ll still be hangin’ around

[Chorus:]

And when you wanna be wanted

And you need to be needed

When you wanna move on

‘Cause you want somebody

Who’s nothing like he is

You know I’ve always been waiting

And I guess what I’m saying

Is I am that man

And when you wanna be wanted

And you need to be needed

When you wanna move on

‘Cause you want somebody

Who’s nothing like he is

You know I’ve always been waiting

And I guess what I’m saying

Is I am that man

I am

Whoa, oh, I am that man

Jon Pardi Fightin’ The Fool

I’ve been down to the bottom of a bottle

I’ve lived my life stuck in full throttle

And slowin’ down, slowin’ down keeps grindin’ my gears

And I took risks I never shoulda taken

I broke hearts that didn’t need breakin’

And I don’t know why, don’t know why I can’t cry tears

[Chorus:]

And I just can’t seem to walk the line

It’s always been easy to say goodbye

When I’m always runnin’

Ain’t nothin’ gonna change my mind

And I just can’t seem to get a clue

I never seem to think things through

It’s T-U-F-F tuff, I can’t win the fight

With the fool inside of me

Too many times I’ve had to learn the hard way

Made mistakes but tomorrow’s a new day

I’ve been there, done that, I ain’t lookin’ back

Yeah and I lost track with man in the mirror

But a whiskey glass seemed to make things clearer

And I don’t know why, don’t know why but I’ve got it bad

[Chorus:]

And I just can’t seem to walk the line

It’s always been easy to say goodbye

When I’m always runnin’

Ain’t nothin’ gonna change my mind

And I just can’t seem to get a clue

I never seem to think things through

It’s t-u-f-f tuff, I can’t win the fight

With the fool inside of me

And when I’m about to get things straight

The fool in me takes a swing

He always seems to find a way to

Turn me upside down…yeah yeah

[Chorus:]

And I just can’t seem to walk the line

It’s always been easy to say goodbye

When I’m always runnin’

Ain’t nothin’ gonna change my mind

And I just can’t seem to get a clue

I never seem to think things through

It’s t-u-f-f tuff, I can’t win the fight

With the fool inside of me

Yeah fightin’ the fool

Fightin’ the fool inside of me

Jon Pardi Love You From Here

You packed your clothes and all your stuff

‘Til there was nothin’ left of us

Guess what we had ain’t enough

That map beside you on the seat

Is ridin’ right where I wanna be

Wish I could stop your leavin’ me

[Chorus:]

But no matter how far you go

My love is strong, won’t lose a hold

Just ’cause you’re gone won’t mean we’ve disappeared

I can still love you from here

It’s your decision, it’s not mine

You’re the one who drew this line

I know I can’t change your mind

You might wind up in Santa Fe

Santa Cruz or in L.A.

Across the ocean that’s okay

Just know that

[Chorus:]

But no matter how far you go

My love is strong, won’t lose a hold

Just ’cause you’re gone won’t mean we’ve disappeared

I can still love you from here

If you leave now you’ll just ride into the sun

So, why don’t you wait ’til mornin’ comes?

Just know that

[Chorus:]

But no matter how far you go

My love is strong, won’t lose a hold

Just ’cause you’re gone won’t mean we’ve disappeared

I can still love you from here

I can still love you from here

Jon Pardi Lucky Tonight

She left about three weeks ago

A single man is a new thing

But I’ve been here before

And I’ve been drinking, I’ve been smoking

I’ve been looking around

I need a stranger to break some new ground

And maybe I’ll get lucky tonight

Find me a girl, take my heartache away

Sad, sad blues

I’ll see you another day, wouldn’t that be so fine?

Maybe I’ll get lucky tonight

I dance on to the song

A melody pulling at my heartstrings

By the love gone wrong

And I’ve been doing everything I can

Trying to move on

And maybe I’ll get lucky tonight

Find me a girl, take my heartache away

Sad, sad blues

I’ll see you another day, wouldn’t that be so fine?

Maybe I’ll get lucky tonight

Fade away with the party lights

Whiskey on ice makes you feel real nice

It’s how you do it

Girl, how you been baby?

Maybe I’ll get lucky tonight

And maybe I’ll get lucky tonight

Find me a girl, take my heartache away

Sad, sad blues

I’ll see you another day, wouldn’t that be so fine?

Maybe I’ll get lucky tonight

Take me, take me, take me away

Take me, take me, take me away

Wouldn’t that be so fine?

Jon Pardi Back On The Backroads

Well I’m sick of all these city lights

Paying too much money for a good time

Rather call some friends of mine

Say there’s a place that ain’t hard to find

It’s just two lefts and one right

A beat up barn on the county line

Ain’t too far for a truck or car

Yeah I know a place we can go

[Chorus:]

On the backroads

And we can crank up that radio

Just bring an ice chest full of beer

Ain’t nothin’ but hay fields out here

And everything’s gonna be all right

The dance floor’s made of dirt tonight

On the backroads

Yeah back on the backroads

When you get close, you better drive slow

Cause this old road’s full of potholes

Just flip your brights a couple times

So we all know you ain’t the PoPo

Yeah we’re all here on country time

Tearin’ it up under cargo lights

We might stay here all night

Wake up to that morning sunrise

[Chorus:]

On the backroads

And we can crank up that radio

Just bring an ice chest full of beer

Ain’t nothin’ but hay fields out here

And everything’s gonna be all right

The dance floor’s made of dirt tonight

On the backroads

Yeah back on the backroads

Yeah back on the backroads

We can crank up that radio

Yeah just bring your beer or alcohol

Hell you can even bring your dog

If you get lost, just give me a call

We’re tearin’ it up all night long

On the backroads

Yeah back on the backroads

Aw yeah

Jon Pardi Write You A Song

Girl, I’m gonna warn ya, I’m leaving California,

First thing in the morning

Me and the band are loading up the van.

We gotta go, we got another show.

We’re headed out to Reno, Jackson Hole,

After that, I don’t really know.

But if you’re looking for a good time,

We can make us a memory of Bakersfield tonight.

And then I’ll write you a song.

You might hear it on the radio.

Baby you never know,

But it’s gonna be just about you and me,

How much I miss you.

You’re the one that got away.

You’re gonna hear your song someday.

Now I’m talking to the sweet thing,

Backstage in Tennessee.

She says she wants to take me home,

Show me a couple things I didn’t know.

Come on, let’s go.

But I gotta hit the road in the morning.

I’m headed down to San Antone.

Long as we’re back by sunrise,

We can make us a memory of Nashville tonight.

And then I’ll write you a song.

You might hear it on the radio.

Baby you never know,

But it’s gonna be just about you and me,

How much I miss you.

You’re the one that got away.

You’re gonna hear your song someday.

And I swear I’m not a bad guy,

I just don’t got a whole lot of time.

It always sit with the same goodbye.

But then I’ll write you a song.

You might hear it on the radio.

Baby you never know,

But it’s gonna be just about you and me,

How much I miss you.

You’re the one that got away.

You’re gonna hear your song someday.

Yeah, you’re gonna hear your song someday

When I write you a song.

Baby, when I write you a song.

Baby I wanna write you, write you a song girl.

Jon Pardi Chasin’ Them Better Days

A little money in the bank

A little gas in my tank

Enough to get me to the next little gig

Naw I ain’t goin’ broke but I ain’t gettin’ rich, yeah

Just waitin’ on a gust of wind

My ship will be comin’ in

Any second, any minute, any time

All my luck’s gonna turn on a dime

[Chorus:]

And I’ve been livin’ in fast lanes

Dodgin’ them cold rains

Keepin’ my faith

And I’ve been waitin’ on sunshine

Rollin’ with the hard times

That come my way

Chasin’ them better days

Chasin’ them better days

I’m gainin’ on another dawn

Hell, I might just stumble on

Another tire with a little more tread

A girl like the girl who lives in my head

Just keepin’ that dream alive

While I’m barely gettin’ by

Ain’t gonna be gettin’ me down

No, it won’t do me no good anyhow

[Chorus:]

And I’ve been livin’ in fast lanes

Dodgin’ them cold rains

Keepin’ my faith

And I’ve been waitin’ on sunshine

Rollin’ with the hard times

That come my way

Chasin’ them better days

Chasin’ them better days

Whoa, I keep on movin’

Whoa, just doin’ what I’m doin’

Yeah and I’ll plow through it

[Chorus:]

And I’ve been livin’ in fast lanes

Dodgin’ them cold rains

Keepin’ my faith

And I’ve been waitin’ on sunshine

Rollin’ with the hard times

That come my way

Chasin’ them better days

Chasin’ them better days

Chasin’ them better days

Jon Pardi Up All Night

Yeah girl, I just had me,

One hell of a work week.

It’s been driving me crazy,

Not enough of you baby.

And I been a-thinkin’,

‘Bout breakin’ in the weekend

Not doin’ any sleepin’

So get in, let’s take a ride

And baby let’s go, take a dirt road

Kick it back, find a good song on the radio,

‘Til we get lost in a sunset falling

Lay a blanket by the creek

Where the moon peeks over that sycamore tree

There won’t be anyone watching

No one watching

Now there ain’t nothing wrong, baby, you and I

Gettin’ down to some up all night

Now don’t forget your flip-flops

We can stop by the quick stop

Get some jerky and a twelve pack

No tellin’ when we’ll be back

I got a cooler in the truck bed

I couple towels when we get wet

Cause you know we’re gonna jump in

And take a little midnight swim

So baby let’s go, take a dirt road

Kick it back, find a good song on the radio,

‘Til we get lost in a sunset falling

Lay a blanket by the creek

Where the moon peeks over that sycamore tree

There won’t be anyone watching

No one watching

Now there ain’t nothing wrong, baby, you and I

Gettin’ down to some up all night

Come Monday, I’ll be back to workin’ and savin’

But until then, yeah

Baby let’s go, take a dirt road

Kick it back, find a good song on the radio,

‘Til we get lost in a sunset falling

Lay a blanket by the creek

Where the moon peeks over that sycamore tree

There won’t be anyone watching

No one watching

Now there ain’t nothing wrong, baby, you and I

Gettin’ down to some up all night

Yeah, me and you

Up all night, yeah

Jon Pardi Dirt On My Boots

Been up since the crack of dawn

Just trying to get paid

Been hotter than a hundred suns

I can’t find no shade

Just two more rows and I’m good to go

Yeah, I’m shutting this tractor down

Gimme half an hour for a shave and a shower

And I’ll be outside your house

Might have a little dirt on my boots

But I’m taking you uptown tonight

Might have a little mud on my wheels

But they’re gonna shine with you up inside

Gonna hit the club, gonna cut a rug

Burn it up like neon lights

Might have a little dirt on my boots

But we’re gonna dance the dust right off them tonight

Yeah, girl

Got a little dirt on my boots

Hard as I worked all day

I’m gonna work harder loving on you

Spin you all over that dance floor

Right out of them high-heeled shoes

And when you’re ready to quit

Baby, we can slip right out of that barroom door

And when I take you home, don’t worry babe

I’m gonna kick them off on the porch

Might have a little dirt on my boots

But I’m taking you uptown tonight

Might have a little mud on my wheels

But they’re gonna shine with you up inside

Gonna hit the club, gonna cut a rug

Burn it up like neon lights

Might have a little dirt on my boots

But we’re gonna dance the dust right off them tonight

Yeah, girl

Got a little dirt on my boots

A little dirty dancing, blue collar romancing

I can get cleaned up if you ask me

But I can only get so fancy

Got a little dirt on my boots

But I’m taking you uptown tonight

Might have a little mud on my wheels

But they’re gonna shine with you up inside

Gonna hit the club, gonna cut a rug

Burn it up like neon lights

Might have a little dirt on my boots

But we’re gonna dance the dust right off them tonight

Got a little dirt on my boots

Got a little dirt on my boots

Got a little dirt on my boots
