Tracy Lawrence Stop, Drop And Roll

I don’t know if you know what you’re doin’

But you’re raisin’ my temperature watchin’ you movin’

Tryin’ things on takin’ things off

Lookin’ hot in everything or nothin’ at all

I’m scratchin’ my head I can’t remember no more

What you’re getting all ready all dolled up for

Got me all fired up and wantin’ your kiss

Best thing to do in a time like this… is

Stop drop and roll

Before this flame burns out of control

Wrap up in a sheet keep it contained

The way you’re smokin’ it’d sure be a shame

Not to do what I know I should do

I better stop drop and roll around with you

Now babe you know I really wanna take you to town

But i’d really hate to burn that honky tonk down

Belt buckle rubbin’ just fans the fire

What we ought to do before it gets any higher … is

Stop drop and roll

Before this flame burns out of control

Wrap up in a sheet keep it contained

The way you’re smokin’ it’d sure be a shame

Not to do what I know I should do

Stop drop and roll around with you

Oh is it hot in here or girl is it just you

Well I know what to do

Lets stop and drop and roll

Before this flame burns out of control

Wrap up in a sheet and keep it contained

The way you’re smokin’ it’d sure be a shame

Not to

Stop and drop and roll

Before this flame burns out of control

Wrap up in a sheet keep it contained

The way you’re smokin’ it’d sure be a shame

Not to do what I know I should do

Oh I wanna stop drop and roll around with you

Stop drop and roll

Around with you

Tracy Lawrence Sawdust On Her Halo

all week long she loves to stay at home and hold me

she hangs her buckle in the closet

keeps her boots up on the shelf

Heaven knows the Good Lord sent me an angel

but every saturday night she wants to raise a little hell

[Chorus]

she like kickin’ up a little sawdust on her halo

yeah she’ll whirl and twirl and twist and turn

while the jukebox twangs and moans

when she paints on them tight bluejeans

it brings out the devil in me

she likes kickin’ up a little sawdust on her halo

you can find her in a choir loft every sunday

winkin’ at me with two sore feet inside her high heel shoes

every saturday night she’ll dance till closin’ time

and still be there in the mornin’ for sunday school

[chorus]

[chorus (2)]

she likes kickin’ up a little sawdust on her halo

Tracy Lawrence Runnin’ Behind

Work, Work, Work day after day

Fifty hour week, forty hour pay

Not time to get over on this overtime

Yea I’m always runnin’, I’m always runnin’ behind

I got a friday night date with my sweetheart

I’m already late and the car won’t start

Lord, I feel like hittin that car and cryin’

Yes I’m always runnin’, I’m always runnin’ behind

All my life it’s been this way

One dollar short and one day late

One rung lower on the ladder I’m tryin to climb

If I ever get lucky, If I ever get rich

Gonna tow my life up out of this ditch

Watch the world go by while I unwind

Yeah I’m always running,

But I’m alwayas runnin’ behind

[Instrumental]

[Repeat Bridge]

Tracy Lawrence The Book You Never Read

When you were lost and needed help

I hoped you would have turned to me

And when you couldn’t save yourself

I watched you drowned that misery

I’ve seen the damage you have done

Every teardrop and misstep

You know I could have saved you some

I’m the book you never read

Your granddaddy carried me in World War 2

Your grandma swears that I am the truth

Your parents hands were on me when they wed

I’m like a member of the family

Three generations have handed me down

I’m in the drawer by your bed

I’m the book you never read

I can’t take the first step for you

But when you take that step you’ll find

You are the key, I am the door to

Forgiveness and some peace of mind and you know

Your granddaddy carried me in World War 2

Your grandma swears that I am the truth

Your parents hands were on me when they wed

I’m like a member of the family

Three generations have handed me down

And despite that is all they’ve said

I’m still the book you never read

So when the world treats you unkindly

And your heart is heavy with regret

That’s when I wish you would find me

I’m the book you’ve never read

Your granddaddy carried me in World War 2

Your grandma swears that I am the truth

Your parents hands were on me when they wed

I’m like a member of the family

Three generations have handed me down

I’m in the drawer by your bed

I’m still book you never read, you’ve never read

Tracy Lawrence I Hope Heaven Has A Honky Tonk

I was raised in a Christian home

On Bible readin gospel songs

Church doors opened up you’d see my face

Sundays twice, Weds too, I’d take my seat on the front row pew,

Singing Rock of Ages and Amazing Grace

Preacher said heavens the place to go

With pearly gates and streets of gold

I guess for the preacher thats alright

But I hope heavens another story

With a good ole boy bound for glory

A little bit like of texas on a saturday nite

[Chorus]

And I hope heaven has a honky tonk

With a 5 pc band,

Cowboy boots,and bluejeans are part of the master plan

And I hope Hanks on the juke box, Bob Wills has a fiddle in his hand

And I hope heaven has a honky tonk with a 5 piece band

I hope those hardwood floors are just like glass

The girls I ask wanna dance

And each and every waitress is divine

I hope that mean old bouncers got a big halo

Those neon lights will always glow

They ain’t never heard of closing time

[Repeat Chorus]

I hope heaven has a honky tonk with a 5 pc band

Tracy Lawrence Somebody Paints The Wall

If my old truck was a horse

I’d have to shoot it

Lord the day my ship came in

I was waiting for a train

Everytime I get a grip, I always lose it

I can’t find the sunshine for the rain

And you know I’m always saying I’m sorry

But you stand by me through it all

Seems everytime I make my mark

Somebody paints the wall

Everytime I think I’m off and runnin

I’m barely up to a crawl

Everytime I get a leg up on the ladder of success

I slip and fall

Like last week down at the factory

I was up for a promotion

But the boss says little brother got the call

Seems everytime I make my mark

Somebody paints the wall

Everytime I think I’m off and runnin

I’m barely up to a crawl

Everytime I get a leg up

On the ladder of success, I slip and fall

Like last week down at the factory

I was up for a promotion

But the boss says little brother got the call

Seems like everytime I make my mark

Somebody paints the wall

Seems everytime I make my mark

Somebody always paints the wall

Tracy Lawrence It Only Takes One Bar

Last night she wasn’t sleeping when I came slipping in

I knew I had it coming cause she knew where I’d been

She said a part of me walks out that door everytime you leave

So remember this while you are losin’ me

It only takes one bar to make a prison

You’ve been doing too much time away from home

She said it takes two hearts to hold a love together

But it only takes one fool to be alone

She said I’ve sat here in the darkness one too many times

And stealin’ thoughts of holding you has been my only crime

Right then I realized she’d always have the key

And locked up in her arms is the only time I’m free

It only takes one bar to make a prison

I’ve been doing too much time away from home

It takes two hearts to hold a love together

But it only takes one fool to be alone

It only takes one bar to make a prison and it only takes one fool to be alone

Tracy Lawrence Other Side Of 35

I can still see mama clear as day

Lookin’ in the mirror countin’ the grey

Rantin’ and ravin’ about pushin’ 40 and the laws of gravity

It was hard for me to wrap my mind

Around anything other than Friday night

My world was girls and cars and beer

And hank at 17

And the other side of 35 was a spot ‘cross the state route road

It was a nowhere no rules no easy way to get to

Hang where we’d all go

there was no place else we’d rather be

We were young, we were cool, we were wild and free

Having the time of our lives

On the other side of 35

Never thought of growing up back then

But 20 came and 30 went

And 35 turned into more than a sign on an overpass

And it’s a lot years from 17

But it ain’t as old as it used to seem

When life was whiskey bent and hell bound screamin’ through the dash

[Repeat chorus]

Well now it ain’t there

And I ain’t there no more

But that’s ok cause that’s what a memory’s for

[Repeat chorus]

And now I’m havin’ the time of my life

Here on the other side

Tracy Lawrence Excitable Boy

I was one or two just lying in my crib

Shaking that rattle like I always did

Susie strolled in that little girl next door

Next thing you know we were rolling on the floor

Mama came a runnin’ to her little pride and joy

Said bless his little heart he’s an excitable boy

High school redneck rebel to the bone

Running eighty miles an hour in a thirty mile zone

Steal a little kiss skip a little school

Break another heart bend another rule

Cop tells the principal he’s only making noise

Cut the kid some slack he’s an excitable boy

I’ve been a renegade since the day I was born I get a little carried away

Never meant to do nobody no harm I gotta rock it I can’t stop it

I ain’t about to change

[ fiddle – guitar ]

Parking with my darling fogging up the glass

Slipping cross the truck seat tryin’ to make a pass

My baby said stop we gotta take it slow

But you know me I’m always raring to go

It’s the way I am I don’t have no choice

What can I say I’m an excitable boy

I’ve been a renegade since the day I was born…

What can I say I’m an excitable boy what can I say I’m an excitable boy

[ guitar – piano ]

Ah you know I just can’t help myself it’s just the way I am
