Sawyer Brown Like A John Deere

When a city girl starts takin’ back the love she gave away

The good ol’ boy with calloused hands

He don’t know what to say

He ain’t good at giving up, no matter how it hurts

All he knows in this world is how to make things work

Oh, if hearts were built like John Deere tractors

There’d be happy ever afters

Strong, true and tough, and made of steel

They pull through when times get hard

And never fall apart

If hearts were built like a John Deere

All she left was just a trail of dust across the farm

He just turned and shook his head

And walked back to the barn

Well, he’s got questions about love

He never thought he’d ask

In his mind when something’s made

It should be made to last

Oh, if hearts were built like John Deere tractors

There’d be happy ever afters

Strong, true and tough, and made of steel

They pull through when times get hard

And never fall apart

If hearts were built like a John Deere

Sawyer Brown Better Be Some Tears

Some other fool with his head in the clouds

Might let you get away with what you done

But not me, Baby, not me

You fall out of love and now you’re comin’ around

Any time you want to get back on

We’ll see, Baby, we’ll see

I won’t be waitin’ here forever

Right now I’m tellin’ you

[Chorus:]

There better be some tears

I wanna see some cryin’

Now you do a little dying

To show me you’re sincere

There better be some tears

After the way you left me

Baby if you wanna get me

To let you come back here

There better be some tears

I don’t want to hear another feeble excuse

About how anyone can make a mistake

What’s new, Baby, tell me what’s new

You can tell me a lie or you can tell me the truth

It doesn’t really matter what you say

It’s what you do, Baby, it’s what you do

You say you want me more than ever

Why aren’t your eyes a little wetter

[Chorus]

I’m gonna wait until you start comin’ unwound

I wanna be there when the walls come a tumblin’ down

And if you really got a heart in there

Baby if you really care

[Chorus]

Sawyer Brown Come Along

Come along

I can’t sit still, gotta go

Got a neighbor with a need of a helping hand

What would it hurt to take a little time

And do for him what I can

I’ve been prayin’, I’ve been sayin’

Only time will tell

If we dig a little deeper in that well

Won’t you come along (come along now)

Come along (come along now)

Take me by the hand and help me sing this song (sing this song)

I’ve got something to shout about

Live out loud about

Can’t you feel the spirit

Won’t you come along (come along)

The weepful river would know what

A little bit of faith and love can do

Lead me, take me, show me, break me

Lord you’re gonna get us through

When we’re walking through the valley we will have no fear

Lift up our voices for the world to hear

Won’t you come along (come along now)

Come along (come along now)

Take me by the hand and help me sing this song (sing this song)

I’ve got something to shout about

Live out loud about

Can’t you feel the spirit

Won’t you come along (come along)

Won’t you take me down (to the river)

Take me down (come with me y’all down to the river, down to the river)

Take me down (wash me clean Lord, down in the river, down in the river)

Take me down (won’t you take me down)

Won’t you come along (come along now)

Come along (come along now)

Take me by the hand and help me sing this song (sing this song)

I’ve got something to shout about

Live out loud about

Can’t you feel the spirit

Won’t you come along (come along)

I said come along (come along now)

Come along (come along now)

Take me by the hand and help me sing this song (sing this song)

I’ve got something to shout about

Live out loud about

Can’t you feel the spirit

Won’t you come along (come along)

Come along (come along)

I said come along (come along)

Come along Won’t you come along (come along)

Won’t you come along (come along)

Won’t you come along (come along)

Won’t you come along (come along now come along)

Sawyer Brown Soul Searchin’

Movin’ up on 1999

Got so much around me

That I can call mine

I’ve got my friends

Got my family

There’s something that I’m missin’

Something I need

[Chorus:]

I’m goin’ soul searchin’ to understand

What’s in my heart

That makes me who I am

I’m goin’ soul searchin’

Cause I know that I can

Be a better man

In the good book on the table by my bed

Simple direction for my life to be lead

I’ve got to slow down got to take some time

If the promise land is ever to be mine

[Chorus]

When we go what we have

We leave behind

Oh but who we are will be ours for all time

[Chorus x2]

Sawyer Brown A Different Tune

I need a harder heart to take the place

Of this one you brake in two

Man I could use a new guitar

To play a different tune

Your trail is hot man it’s still smokin’

You’re gone for good baby I ain’t dumb

I knew that you were tired of hearin’

The same ole song I sung

You packed up your magazine

The one that tells you what to do

I’m not the kind of man you need

To make your dreams come true

[Chorus:]

I need to find a faster car

To give you a little more room

I need a longer lariat

To lasso you the moon

I need a harder heart to take the place

Of this one you brake in two

Man I could use a new guitar

To play a different tune

Babe was I that ripe for the pickin’

You set your sights like a loaded gun

The bullet hit but it ain’t stickin’

It’s hard to shoot when your on the run

I’m the one you set your sights for

But not the one you’re gonna keep

You go out running after midnight Walkin’ in my sleep

[Chorus]

I need a harder heart to take the place

Of this one you brake in two

Man I could use a new guitar

To play a different tune

Man I could use a new guitar

To play a different tune

Sawyer Brown All These Years

She likes adventure with security

And more than one man can provide

She planned adventure feeling sure that he

Would not be home ’til after five

He turned on the lights and turned them off again,

And said the one thing he could say

All these years

Where have I been

I’ve been down the road to work and home again

And I’m still here

Until I’m gone

And don’t you rub it in too hard that I’ve been wrong

All these years

She said, “You’re not the man you used to be”

And He said, “Neither is this guy”

She said, “There’s some things you refuse to see…

But I guess sometimes so do I”

She made no excuse why she was lying there,

She said the one thing she could say

All these years

What have I done?

I made your supper and your daughter and your son

Still I’m here,

And still confused

But I can finally see how much I stand to lose

All these years…

I’m still here

And so confused

But I can finally see how much I stand to lose,

All these years.

Sawyer Brown Keep Your Hands To Yourself

I got a little change in my pocket going jingle lingle ling

Want to call you on the telephone baby I give you a ring

But each time we talk I get the same old thing

Always no huggin no kissin until I get a wedding ring

My honey my baby don’t put my love upon no shelf

She said don’t give no lies and keep your hands to yourself

Cruel baby baby baby why you want to treat me this way

You know I’m still your lover boy I still feel the same way

That’s when she told me a story ’bout free milk and a cow

And she said no huggin no kissin until I get a wedding vow

My honey my baby don’t put my love upon no shelf

She said don’t hand me no lies and keep your hands to yourself

You see I wanted her real bad and I was about to give in

That’s when she started talkin’ true love started talkin’ about sin

I said honey I’ll live with you for the rest of my life

She said no huggin no kissin until you make me your wife

My honey my baby don’t put my love on no shelf

She said don’t hand me no lies and keep your hands to yourself.

Sawyer Brown Hallelujah He Is Born

A mighty prayer went up –

An answer came down from above

To save a lonely world God sent His only Son

He came as a baby, quiet as a lamb

With peace in His heart and us all in His hands

Saying I’m gonna show you now

What love is all about (and I sing)

[Chorus:]

Hallelujah, hallelujah He is born

Hallelujah, He is Christ the Lord

He’s the King of Kings, our redeemer and friend

Hallelujah, He is born, amen

Hallelujah, hallelujah He is here

Hallelujah, we’ve got nothing to fear

To this dark old world He brings a light without end

Hallelujah, He is born, amen

He came in love and peace on that holy night

They came from near and far in that guiding light

Lying in a manger was a baby King

And from that night until this day we sing

Lord Jesus is His name

Heaven and earth proclaim (and I sing)

[Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus]

Hallelujah, amen

Hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah

Amen

Hallelujah, hallelujah He is born, amen

Sawyer Brown Mission Temple Fireworks Stand

I saw a black man with a bible and a sparkler in his hand.

He was holding a tent revival and running a firework stand.

He said the end of the world is coming so you better get on your knees.

Today bottle rockets are two for one, but salvation’s free.

He said I quit my job at a big church where the milk and money flowed,

to sell cherry bombs for Jesus in a tent beside the road.

I ain’t in it for the money, most cars pass on by.

But I pay the rent on New Years and the fourth of July.

Here at the

Holy Ghost,

Big Bang Theory,

Pentecostal,

Fire and Brimstone,

Mission Temple Firework Stand

He said fireworks are dangerous. They can blow up in your face.

So you better read the instructions, light the fuse and get away.

These things are made in China, so it’s easy to see,

how a man who worships Buddha ain’t got no guarantee.

This is the

Holy Ghost,

Big Bang Theory,

Pentecostal,

Fire and Brimstone,

Mission Temple Firework Stand

He said everything I’m selling is all going up in smoke.

This world is like an atom bomb, it’s ready to explode.

When the trumpet sounds and The Lord comes back I promise you one thing.

I’ll be a human bottle rocket and I’ll go out with a bang.

I’ll leave this,

Sawyer Brown Wantin’ And Havin’ It All

Rich man grew old, owned a mansion on top of the hill

Now he’s sitting at the table with his lawyer

Goin’ over his will ’cause he’s ill

The kids don’t call, they’re waitin’ for the man to die

He’s gonna leave ’em all a little somethin’

But they’re gonna be real surprised

There’s a poor man livin’ on a budget at the bottom of that hill

With a wife and two kids and a worried mind

About how he’s gonna pay the bills

Well, only the rich man knows, see

That’s where a lot of his money goes

To the man that brought wood in the winter

To take a little weight off his shoulders

There’s this thing called wantin’ and havin’ it all

If you’re gonna get there, you’re gonna have to walk

But first, you’ll have to crawl

And you know you’ve gotta do it step by step

Miss one and you’ll fall into this well

Called wantin’ and havin’ it all

Poor man has everything that the rich man don’t

He’s got love in his life and his heart

He’s got a house he calls home

The rich man owns everything from miles around

But what he needs can’t be bought, it has to be found

His rich kids think that they’re better, ’cause they’re better off

That’s how they grew up thinkin’ and now

He thinks it’s all his fault

So while there’s still time, the daddy that they nickel and dime

Is gonna make ’em learn to take a turn

And stand in line

There’s this thing called wantin’ and havin’ it all

If you’re gonna get there you’re gonna have to walk

But first you’ll have to crawl

And you know you’ve gotta do it step by step

Miss one and you’ll fall into this well

Called wantin’ and havin’ it all

See life’s full of changes

And wantin’ right now what you only see in your dreams

I know you don’t like it and think

It’s the strangest thing you’ve ever seen

Well, there ain’t nothin’ you can do about it

There’s this thing called wantin’ and havin’ it all

If you’re gonna get there, you’re gonna have to walk

But first you’ll have to crawl

And you know you’ve gotta do it step by step

Miss one and you’ll fall into this well

Called wantin’ and havin’ it all
