Toby Keith Boomtown

The people came here from parts unknown

Sleepin’ in their cars ’cause they didn’t have homes

Thought this place was the promised land

If you could roughneck, we could use a good man

Come on boy let me show you around

You could make a lot of money here

Livin’ in a boomtown

We’ll some build bars and big hotels

Downshift drive and the people live well

High on the hog and wild on the range

Pocket full of cash instead of chump change

This place kicks when the sun goes down

Ain’t life great when you’re livin’ in a boomtown

See oil was the blood that flowed through the soul

To keep a man workin’ when it’s forty below

Relent to the devil in the cold cold ground

Trying to make a dollar here livin’ in a boomtown

Six short years the oil fields went

Rigs came down and the money got spent

And the wisemen saved for a rainy day

The fools packed up and moved away

The hotels closed and the bars shut down

And it got real quite livin’ in a boomtown

See oil was the blood that flowed through the soul

To keep a man workin’ when it’s forty below

Relent to the devil in the cold cold ground

Trying to make a dollar here livin’ in a boomtown

Now the cafe’s filled with people tellin’ lies

Trying to figure out how the town went dry

You can buy a house a dime on the dollar

Need a good home just give me a holler

I can move you in with no money down

Still tryin’ to make a dollar here livin’ in a boomtown

Livin’ in a boomtown

Livin’ in a boomtown

Toby Keith I Know A Wall When I See One

Blue eyes, brown hair, yeah that’s my past standing there

Turning every head in here tonight

That smile, that laugh, everyone is staring at

The one thing that stands between

Me and the rest of my life

I know a wall when I see one

And I’m looking at one right now

Heartaches written all over this one

One I can’t get around

Where’s a door when you need one

I know a wall when I see one

The hurt had stopped, at least that’s what I thought

Up until what use to be walked in

Just flesh and bone, it might as well be stone

‘Cause it’s a memory I can’t get past

That’s what I’m up against

I know a wall when I see one

And I’m looking at one right now

Heartaches written all over this one

One I can’t get around

Where’s a door when you need one

I know a wall when I see one

After all my heart’s been through

Look what it’s run into

I know a wall when I see one

And I’m looking at one right now

Heartaches written all over this one

One I can’t get around

Where’s a door when you need one

I know a wall when I see one

I know a wall

Great big suprise

You’re skating on thin ice

Hmm I ain’t gonna screw it up this time

Hmmm I’m gonna really make her proud she’s mine

Note to self

Remember when

You use to light her up

When you walked in

And she stole your breath away

That’s the way it was

Everytime you kissed her

And she still does

Hmm I ain’t gonna mess it up this time

Hmmmmmmm I’m gonna really make her proud she’s mine

Turning down the street

I’m pulling in the drive

Door ain’t lock

So I step inside

She ain’t here to greet me

So what’s goin on?

Note self

She’s already gone

Hmmmm gone

Hmmmmmmmm gone

Hmmmmmm I guess I really messed it up this time…

Toby Keith Pump Jack

I see you standin’ in the sun

Like an iron dinosaur

Got your tired head restin’

On a West Texas floor

We were really something son

Back in our time

Yeah we broke a lot of hearts

And we made a lot of dimes

Pump Jack pump Jack

Pump a little more

‘Cause Daddy’s cut it thin

At the general store

Gentleman’s dime don’t float that long

Hey pump Jack pump before my good name’s gone

You know I lost my baby to a wildcat dream

I was fueled by the crude and the gasoline

It’s hard to settle down with a roustabout

That oil burns hot ’till the oil burns out

Pump Jack pump Jack

Pump a little more

‘Cause Daddy’s cut it thin

At the general store

A gentleman’s dime don’t float that long

Hey pump Jack pump before my good name’s gone

Standin’ in the panhandle

Cussin’ this well

Wishing like the devil

Praying like hell

At the end of this string is a pot of black gold

Sittin’ in the bottom of another giant hole

Pump Jack pump Jack

Pump a little more

‘Cause Daddy’s cut it thin

At the general store

A gentleman’s dime don’t float that long

Hey pump Jack pump before my good name’s gone

Yeah pump Jack pump before my good name’s gone

Pump Jack pump Jack

Pump a little more

Pump Jack pump Jack

Pump a little more

Yeah pump Jack pump Jack

Pump a little more

Pump Jack pump Jack

Pump a little more

Toby Keith Brand New Bow

Thought I’d call you up

See if had celebrated

Day you were born

It’s a little belated

Age is just a number

It’s really over rated to me

Yea November third

That’s a day I remember

Cuz its thirty seven days after mine in September

You’d thought I forgot

Cuz here it is December again

Oh, happy birthday baby

Wanna to see you tonight

I got your present waitin

I wanna do it right

I ain’t got enough money for a big diamond ring

Let’s tie a brand new bow around the same old thing

Yea

Now blow

Out your candles

Yea happy birthday baby

Want to see you tonight

I got your present waitin

And I wanna do it right

I ain’t got enough money for a big diamond ring

Let’s tie a brand new bow around the same old thing

(It’d be cool if we could make an ending for it)

Toby Keith It’s All Good

Mother earth has changed since I was a child

The East is a beast and the West is really wild

And the headlines say the end looks grim

And the future don’t look so bright

You can’t even open your mailbox,

You can’t take the plane

Everybody lookin’ for somebody to blame

I think I’m gonna let the president

Save this ol’ world tonight

I’ll light us a fire

And she’ll turn off the news

We’ll open a cold one and shake these blues

It’s all good

It’s alright

I’m gonna sit here with my baby all night

And let the troubles of this world roll on by us like they should

It’s all cool

It’s OK

We’ve got everything going our way

Can’t complain if we’re alright

It’s all good

Just a regular Joe with a beautiful girl

Just getting by in a day-to-day world

We ain’t got a lot,

Ah, but we don’t need anything

Covered in kisses, surrounded by love

Showered with blessings from up above

When you’re sittin’ on top of the world,

Man, we got everything

We live out here in the country

Where the workin’ class do

We’ve got our health and our happiness too

It’s all good

It’s alright

I’m gonna sit here with my baby all night

And let the troubles of this world roll on by us like they should

It’s all cool

It’s OK

We’ve got everything going our way

Can’t complain if we’re alright

It’s all good

No, can’t complain ’cause we’re alright

And it’s all good

Toby Keith If I Had One

Jackknife, brake at the traffic stop

Interstate lookin’ like a parkin’ lot

Fat boy flying on a Fat Boy bike

Weavin’ in and out and passin’ me by

I honked my horn and shot the bird at that crazy SOB

Yeah, but deep down, I was wishin’ it was me

But if I had one, I’d have to say

I’d probably do the same dang thing

Pull her to the shoulder and let that steel horse run

I’d be hell on wheels if I had one

Called my brother said, “How you’ve been?

We ain’t been fishin’ since I don’t know when”

He said, “This graveyard shift’s a graveyard grind

I got more bills than I got time”

I’d love to weigh the line but my wife just stay on my case

I said “I guess I know who wears the pants around your place”

But if I had one, I’d have to say

I’d probably do the same dang thing

Stay at home holdin’ my baby when the workday is done

Yeah, I’d try to keep her happy if I had one

Sittin’ on a bar stool talkin’ to a lady

She’s runnin’ my tab up, callin’ me baby

Buy her a drink she’ll let you chase her

And watch her shake her money maker

Boy if I had one I’d have to say

I’d probably shake it the same damn way

Hike it up high ’cause I could get it, son

I’d never buy another beer if I had one

You know things would be different if I had one

That’s what I’d do if I had one of those

I’d do it just like that, right there

Things would be different if I had one, too

But I don’t, but if I had one, yeah buddy, ooh buddy

Toby Keith Creole Woman

I stopped in Thibodeaux, Roadhouse in Louisian

I wasn’t stayin’ long, I was a wanted man

The aire was thick with danger, I watched the vixens dance

My six gun in my pocket, my pistol in my pants

I let her walk up on me, she pinned me to the door

She said she swore she knew me, we’d never met before

She pressed up hard against me, I stared into her eyes

She grabbed my face and kissed me, she had me hypnotized

[Chorus]

I’m runnin’ down the road, can’t find the interstate

It’s like I’m being followed and I can’t get away

The snakes and alligators, they whisper in the wind

I hear her calling to me, I turn around again

Cry of a Creole woman

Woke up the devil down in me

She took me to her bedroom, smelled like a cheap hotel

Never had a Cajun queen, I’m used to Southern belles

But through the smoky billows of my tobacco leaves

I watched her in the mirror as she was lovin’ me

[Repeat Chorus]

What’s this you wicked woman, some kind of voodoo game?

Hell I haven’t slept since Thursday, don’t even know your name

This spell you got me under, got just one remedy

Just like a poison potion, that goes down smooth and sweet

[Repeat Chorus]

Toby Keith Tender As I Wanna Be

I know sometimes you need me to be tender

I don’t give you much to go on

So I’m amazed at how you hold on to me

Baby girl I’ve never been this close before

Never opened up that door

I’m still finding my way

Something else that lovers do

When I’ve been by myself

Never had to talk about

Movin’ in with someone else

[Chorus]

Then you kiss my face

And it makes me smile

Girl I want to lay with you,

Right here with you

For a little while

When I feel that rush

Coming down all over me

You’re as fas as I can see

That’s tender as I wanna be

Tender as I wanna be

Girl it’s so tender

No maybe it’s that hard

To find someone to please me

Or it could be that real true love

Sometimes don’t come easy

No it don’t come easy

[Chorus]

Toby Keith 11 Months And 29 Days

When I busted in Austin

Walkin’ around in a daze

Man, I’m sittin’ in the slammer

Lookin’ out through the bars ‘cross a haze

It’ll all clear up

In 11 months and 29 days

Keep that Lone Star cold

The dance floor hot while I’m gone

Keep the Lone Star cold

Dance floor hot while I’m gone

While I’m gone

Keep your hands off my baby

I ain’t gonna be gone that long

Incognito bandito

That old judge put a sledgehammer

Put it in my hand when he said

I’m gonna send you down to Huntsville

And I’m gonna shave your face

And I’m gonna shave your head

Doin’ 11/29

Cement floor for my bed

When I busted in Austin

Walkin’ around in a daze

Now I’m sittin’ in this slammer

Lookin’ out through the bars ‘cross a haze

It’ll all clear up

In 11 months and 29 days
