The Bellamy Brothers Cowboy Beat

Well it could be anywhere in the U.S.A.

Texas, Tennessee, Down In F.L.A.

When the weekend falls and all the girls come out

Well that’s what a country boys life is all about

Well there’s a band or a jukebox everywhere we go

Get in the car turn up the radio

Country music playing out in the streets

Everybody’s dancin’ to the cowboy beat.

Well way out west they get a burning desire

When the guitars play it really feeds the fire

Arizona California down the Vegas way

They’re even feeling the beat through the heat of the day

You know they’re fallin’ in love all over this land

From Alaska to the Rio Grande

So hold on to your baby while you move your feet

Everybody’s dancin’ to the cowboy beat.

Well they’re sellin’ like hotcakes everywhere we go

Showing up in honky tonks and rodeos

Twangin’ and a kickin’ on the movie screens

Lord it’s takin’ over everything

Well it could be anywhere in the U.S.A

Texas, Tennessee Down in F.L.A

Way up in New York City at the Broadway show

They’re wearin’ boots and buckles while they do si do.

You know they’re bringin’ the whole world down to it’s knees,

so move a little closer and hold on to me

We’ll dance down the isle life’ll be so sweet

Raisin’ our kids to the cowboy beat.

To the cowboy beat.

We’ll be dancin’ to the cowboy beat.

The Bellamy Brothers Blame It…On The Fire In My Heart

Blame it on the sundown

Far beyond the highway

Blame it on the laughter and the fun

Blame it on the software

Always going my way

There must be a reason why I’m gone

Blame it on the moutains

On the far horizon

Blame it on the rivers running free

Blame it on the beauty

Of the moon arising

Blame it on the dream that carries me

I still love you, still love you

Forever and a day, and our

Hearts and our souls will never part

Something tells me your crying

But baby I can’t stay

Blame it on the fire in my heart

Blame it on the rainbow

Blame it on the wildside

Blame it on the mighty old oak tree

Blame it on the seashore

Blame it on the starlite

Blame it on your conscience or on me

Blame it on the music

Blame it on the rodeo

On the wheel of fortune rolling on

Blame it on the smilling faces

Bin so many places

There must be a reason why I’m gone

I still love you, still love you

Forever and a day, and our

Hearts and our souls will never part

Someday somehow & somewhere

The wind will blow me back to you,

Baby someday somehow & somewhere

I’ll be coming back out the blue

Blame it on the sundown

Far beyond the highway

Blame it on the laughter and the fun

Blame it on the software

Always going my way

There must be a reason why I’m gone

I still love you, still love you

Forever and a day, and our

Hearts and our souls will never part

Something tells me your crying

But baby I can’t stay

Blame it on the fire in my heart

Blame it on the fire in my heart

Just blame it on the fire in my heart

The Bellamy Brothers Dancin’ Cowboys

We like boots and saddles

We love girls and guitars

We let romance and passion

Turn our heads and rule our hearts

Old bandanas and blue jeans

Campfires burnin’ like stars

It’s a song about all the things

We live and what we are.

Dancin’ cowboys, singin’ horses

Gypsy music, ringin’ voices

Dancin’ cowboys, singin’ horses

Gypsy music, songs about love.

We got home in our hearts babe

Got the road in our blood

Got a cowgirl in every single town

Our name ain’t mud

We like pistols and stetsons

Dance halls and cafes

Now you know where we’re comin’ from

Come and dance the night away.

Dancin’ cowboys, singin’ horses

Gypsy music, ringin’ voices

Dancin’ cowboys, singin’ horses

Gypsy music, songs about love.

Yeah, dancin’ cowboys, singin’ horses

Gypsy music, ringin’ voices

Dancin’ cowboys, singin’ horses,

Gypsy music, songs about love.

Songs about love.

Songs about love…

The Bellamy Brothers Drug Problem

I hear people talkin’ about going “cold turkey”

Dryin’ out, checkin’ into Betty Ford

But I just can’t relate to all those strange addictions

Cuz my drug problem never went ignored

[Chorus]

You see I was drug to Church on Sunday Morning

I was drug to family reunions

I was drug to Grandpa’s farm to work every summer

And I was drugged to weddings and to funerals

I was drug out the door to go to school (everyday)

I was drug by my ears when I was bad

When I disobeyed my parents or my teacher

I was drug to the wood shed by my Dad

And those drugs are still running through my veins

Still affecting everything I do and say

And if kids today had those kind of drug problems

I believe the world would be a better place

I won’t claim I grew up to be perfect (far from it)

But every time I start to make a slip

I can see Daddy reaching for the good book

And hear those prayers roll from Mama’s lips

That’s why I count my blessings every evening

And pray to the good Lord up above

And thank him for giving me a drug problem

And a home and a family filled with love

[Chorus]

Yea, I was drug to Church on Sunday Morning

I was drug to family reunions

I was drug to Grandpa’s farm to work every summer

And I was drugged to weddings and to funerals

I was drug out the door to go to school (everyday)

I was drug by my ears when I was bad

When I disobeyed my parents or my teacher

I was drug to the wood shed by my Dad

And those drugs are still running through my veins

Still affecting everything I do and say

And if kids today had those kind of drug problems

I believe the world would be a better place

The Bellamy Brothers Country Rap

Hillbillies talkin’ ’bout turnip greens

Cornbread, sweetpatatos, pork and beans

Country roads farm and ranch

Drink a little creek water from the branch

We got pickup trucks chicken clucks

Happy even when we’re down on our luck

We got fatback that’s a fact

And if you don’t know that’s a country rap.

Neighbor down the roads got a cow for sale

Twenty dollars more you get the horns and tail

Saturday night we’re goanna go get drunk

Something in the road smells like a skunk.

Steel guitars rowdy bars

Redneck girls and beat-up cars

We got fatback that’s a fact

And if you don’t know that’s a country rap.

Sunday morning catch a speckled perch

Been bad all week I got to go to church

That afternoon it’s all you please

Fried chicken mash patatas black-eyed peas.

Bumper sticker says lets rodeo

Find me a hunny say hay lets go

We got fatback that’s a fact

And if you don’t know that’s a country rap.

Cowboy’s talking about his quarter horse

Pig farmers talking bout his pigs of course

Sheeps and goats calf ropein’ daughter

How his son sings cool cool water.

Alligator crawling round way down south

Turn me around shut my mouth

We got fatback that’s a fact

And if you don’t know that’s a country rap.

And if you don’t know that’s a country rap…

The Bellamy Brothers Crossfire

Sleep some nights it just don’t show

When you’ve pushed and life won’t go

Your dreams get lost and your sorrows grow

You read and try to watch T.V. take a drive out to the sea

You might break down but you can’t break free.

Standin’ in the crossfire

hangin’ from a live wire.

Reachin’ for a lost smile and hidin’ in the wind.

Standin’ in the crossfire

stranded on a high wire

Runnin’ for a reason

lookin’ for a friend.

Dream your eyes are almost blind

They photograph your mind

And leave a trace of her love in time.

Night’s

you live the smokey past

Try to break the spell she cast.

You start out first but you end up last.

Standin’ in the crossfire

hangin’ from a live wire…

The Bellamy Brothers Crazy From The Heart

I know the reasons why you’re not here with me

But I told you I’d survive if you ever had to leave.

But in the light of day, I tend to do okay.

But when the night takes hold, I think of you.

And I go crazy from the heart.

I reach out to touch you,

But you’re nowhere in the dark.

My mind knows why we’re apart.

But I go crazy,

Crazy from the heart.

In my mind there’s no doubt we could not make it last.

But I’ve learned to live without a love that’s in the past.

But in the night so still, her memories feel so real.

They make my blood run cold. I reach for you.

And I go crazy from the heart.

I reach out to touch you,

But you’re nowhere in the dark.

My mind knows why we’re apart.

But I go crazy,

Crazy from the heart.

When the moon takes hold.

(When the moon takes hold.)

The stars come out and I lose control.

And I go crazy from the heart.

I reach out to touch you,

But you’re nowhere in the dark.

My mind knows why we’re apart.

But I go crazy,

Yes, I go crazy.

I still go crazy,

Crazy from the heart.

The Bellamy Brothers Beautiful Night

Beautiful night

Stars shining down

All of God’s glory

All around

The rains gone away

And there’s no clouds in sight

We’re singing His praises

This beautiful night

The moon’s glowing silver

Down on blue water

Sweet meditation bathes me in white

I feel His spirit and I relive creation

I feel His blessings

This beautiful night

[Chorus:]

Beautiful night

Stars shining down

All of God’s glory

All around

The rains gone away

And there’s no clouds in sight

We’re singing His praises

This beautiful night

Quiet takes over, blends with our voices

Just stillness and prayer

While the angels unite

He is our rock He is our refuge

He is our savior

This beautiful night

[repeat chorus]

And when morning breaks

His light again shines

Fulfilling our souls

So warm and so bright

But come again evening

We’ll gather our loved ones

And lift up our voices

This beautiful night

[repeat chorus]

[repeat chorus and fade]

The Bellamy Brothers Do You Love As Good As You Look?

Long blonde hair, sky blue eyes

Yeah that well-bred look is easy to recognize

A tailored dress, a fit so fine

And it adds up to the question on my mind

Honey, do you love as good as you look?

Can you satisfy your man, like your body says you can?

Judging from the cover, I’d love to read the book

Honey, do you love as good as you look?

If you could read my mind, you might blush blood-red

But then again you might come over here instead

I see they brought your check and soon you’re bound to go

If I don’t make my move right now, I may never know

Honey, do you love as good as you look?

Can you satisfy your man, like your body says you can?

Judging from the cover, I’d love to read the book

Honey, do you love as good as you look?

Judging from the cover, I’d love to read the book

Honey, do you love as good as you look?

Honey, do you love as good as you look?…

The Bellamy Brothers Feelin’ The Feelin’

It started with a smile and a brush of your hair

Though we got a little close, there was no slow dance

How the world seems to spin around just for me and you

It took us by surprise when it hit us in our hearts

Such unbridled passion from an innocent start

It stunned us for awhile but now we know what we’re gonna do

Gonna make it last, gonna make some dreams come true.

We’ve been feelin’ the feelin’

From a shine up above

We’ve been steadily steelin’

Wvery moment we can

‘Cause we can’t get enough

We’ve been feelin’ the feelin’

Flyin’ on the wings of a dove

We’ve been feelin’ the feelin’

And the feelin’ is love.

Well, the clouds rolled back and the sun broke through

And the earth seemed to move when I whispered to you

Darlin’, we woke up this feelin’ from it’s lonely sleep

When I say I love you, I mean I love you so deep.

We’ve been feelin’ the feelin’

From a shine up above

We’ve been steadily steelin’

Wvery moment we can

‘Cause we can’t get enough

We’ve been feelin’ the feelin’

Flyin’ on the wings of a dove

We’ve been feelin’ the feelin’

And the feelin’ is love.

We’ve been feelin’ the feelin’

From a shine up above

We’ve been steadily steelin’

Wvery moment we can

‘Cause we can’t get enough

We’ve been feelin’ the feelin’

Flyin’ on the wings of a dove

We’ve been feelin’ the feelin’

And the feelin’ is love…
