American Friday Night Lyrics – Bucky Covington

Cheers from a high school football game
on an American Friday night
Chorus of the pledge of allegiance
As the red ones rewind the fight

Crowd roars
and the quarterback scores
Losing side gets quiet
You can almost hear the high beat
of an American Friday night

Hey yeah
the girls look pretty
man, they're good to go
boys try to shine like stars on the city
music on the radio
There ain't no place in the whole wide world
that can feel so right
Yeah yeah, an American Friday night

Good old boys
laughin', back slappin
on the other side of town
And they only leave behind a couple beauties besides
there ain't no worries now
They all rock ZZ top
as they make their rounds

Yeah that's how good it sounds
that's how good it sounds

Hey yeah
the girls look pretty
man, they're good to go
boys try to shine like stars on the city
music on the radio
There ain't no place in the whole wide world
that can feel so right
Yeah yeah, an American Friday night
Yeah yeah An American Friday night!

You wanna go to the movies
stay home and order dominoes
flip a coin and we'll choose
we can't loose

Hey yeah girl you look pretty
Girl I'm good to go
we're gonna shine like stars in the city
songs on the radio
there ain't no place in the world that can feel this right
yeah yeah an American Friday night
Oh yeah, yes an American Friday night
Oh yeah, an American Friday night

A Different World Lyrics – Bucky Covington

We were born to mothers who smoked and drank
Our cribs were covered in lead based paint
No child proof lids no seat belts in cars
Rode bikes with no helmets and still here we are, still here we are
We got daddy's belt when we misbehaved
Had three TV channels you got up to change
No video games and no satellite
All we had were friends and they were outside, playin' outside

[Chorus]
It was a different life
When we were boys and girls
Not just a different time
It was a different world

School always started the same every day
The pledge of allegiance then someone would pray
Not every kid made the team when they tried
We got disappointed and that was all right, we turned out all right

[Chorus]

Bridge
No bottled water, we drank from a garden hose
And every Sunday, all the stores were closed

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

It was a different world

I'll Walk Lyrics – Bucky Covington

We were 18, it was prom night.
We had our first big fight.
She said "Pull this car over".
I did and then I told her, "I don't know what you are crying for".
I grabbed her hand, as she reached for the door.

She said, I'll walk.
Let go of my hand.
Right now I'm hurt, and you don't understand.
So just be quiet.
And later we will talk.
Just leave, don't worry.
I'll walk.

It was a dark night, a black dress.
Driver never saw her, around the bend.
I never will forget the call, or driving to the hospital
when they told me her legs still wouldn't move.
I cried, when I walked into her room.

She said, I'll walk.
Please come and hold my hand.
Right now I'm hurt, and I don't understand.
Lets just be quiet, and later we can talk.
Please stay, don't worry.
I'll walk.

I held her hand through everything.
The weeks and months of therapy.
And I held her hand and asked her, to be my bride.
She's dreamed from a little girl, to have her daddy bring her down the isle.
So from her wheelchair, she looks up to him and smiles.

And says, I'll walk.
Please hold my hand.
I know that this will hurt, I know you understand.
Please daddy don't cry.
This is already hard.
Let's go, don't worry.
I'll walk.

Back When We Were Gods Lyrics – Bucky Covington

Yeah me Jim and Dan we were all best friends
Riding off like cowboys on a road that never ends
We knew it was our last time for the time of our lives....

See Dan was getting married
Jim was going to desert storm
I was heading off to college
Moving into a dorm
So we took off in that old hot rod
Back when we were gods.

[Chorus:]
You couldn't tell us nothing
We didn't already know
And if the sign said off limits
You could bet we would go
A hundred miles an hour nonstop
Back when we were gods.

There were Arizona troopers
Trailing close behind
We knew they couldn't touch us
Once we crossed the state line
So we pulled over and showed them a Tennessee moon
From the California side.

L.A. was a nightmare, Vegas was a dream
Dan had won more money than we had ever seen
Didn't take us one day to blow the whole lot
Yeah back when we were gods.

[Chorus]

We thought we were invincible
Couldn't nothing bring us down
But it didn't take long
For the real world to knock us flat on the ground
And I hope we were forgiven for all the crazy things we did
After all we were just kids

[Chorus]

Ain't No Thing Lyrics – Bucky Covington

I admit; feeling down
I can cruise down-town
And find a good place to cry
And drink a bottle dry

I can see close in time
I could ease my mind
In all those little honky tonk joints
But, baby, whats the point?

Aint no thing, aint no thing
So Im standing in the pouring rain
Aint like Ive never been here before
Im just here again
Aint no thing, aint no thing
So your leaving like a long freight train
And if I even cry at all
That would be a cryin shame
Cause the sky aint gonna fall
Girl, ya know it aint no thing

Dont feel sorry- dont feel sad
Dont feel bad about the way
You had to break my heart in two
I got news for you
Its okay- Its alright
In fact theres nothing

Thats quite like being set free
Theres other fishes in the sea

Aint no thing, aint no thing
So Im standing in the pouring rain
Aint like Ive never been here before
Im just here again
Aint no thing, aint no thing
So your leaving like a long freight train
And if I even cry at all
That would be a cryin shame
Cause the sky aint gonna fall
Girl, ya know it aint no thing

[instrumental]

Aint no thing, aint no thing
So Im standing in the pouring rain
Aint like Ive never been here before
Im just here again
Aint no thing, aint no thing
So your leaving like a long freight train
And if I even cry at all
That would be a cryin shame
Cause the sky aint gonna fall
Girl, ya know it aint no thing

Ya know it aint no...

I'm Good Lyrics – Bucky Covington

Got my eye on the deacons daughter
But I'm diesel fuel, and she's holy water.
She don't like boys that drink cuss and chew
That's why im here, lord callin on you.

I no I aint been livin like I ought to
Lord I swere that she could make me want to
Maybe askin you for more then I should
But just give me this girl and im good.

That four wheeler would have sure been dandy
A bigger boat would have come in handy
But im so glad that you held out on me
Cos now I see what I really need

I no I aint been livin like I ought to
Lord I swere that she could make me want to
Maybe askin you for more then I should

But just give me this girl and im good

Yeah baby
C'mon
Mmm just one time
C'mon lord
Here we go

I no I aint been livin like I ought to
Lord I swere that she could make me want to
Maybe askin you for more then I should
But just give me this girl and im good
I no I aint been livin like I ought to
Lord I swere that she could make me want to
Maybe askin you for more then I should
But just give me this girl and im good
Lord just give me this girl and im good.

Empty Handed Lyrics – Bucky Covington

He's a mover he's a shaker he's a real money maker
Spit shine on his alligator shoes
Nobody's knowin'
He's headin' straight for ruin
And he doesn't even have a clue

The Harlem man
Hadn't asked where it's all happened
He's got a window on the 32nd floor
Whoever would have thought
It turns out all he ever wanted
Ain't the thing he was lookin' floor

Sometimes he wishes that the wish wasn't granted
Wonderin' how he ever got this enchanted
Holdin' onto the good life
He can't stand it
Everybody leaves here empty handed

The smalltown beauty queen
Livin' on amphetamines
Hangin' in the Hollywood hills
Got herself famous in the city of the angels
With the help of the devil and the pills

Now daddy was a preacher
Even Jesus couldn't reach her
She's a victim of another disease
She's done a lot of ??
And she's had a lot of surgery
Searchin' for what she needs

Sometimes she wishes that the wish wasn't granted
Wonderin' how she ever got this enchanted
Holdin' onto the good life
And she can't stand it
Everybody leaves here empty handed

Well the cold hard truth
It's up to you
So if you ever wish that your wish wasn't granted
Wonderin' how you ever got this enchanted
Holdin onto the good life
But you can't stand it
Well everybody leaves here empty handed
Empty handed
Empty handed
Well everybody leaves here empty handed

Hometown Lyrics – Bucky Covington

Sittin' on a train bridge
Waitin' on sundown
River winds
Settin' low on that old town
And nothin' else to do but think
And toss a stone and watch it sink
Oh I hope heaven's a lot like my hometown

Walkin' down the old track
Balancin' on the rail
A Sunday breeze
Carryin' church bells
Sun like a kaleidoscope
Through the leaves of a scarlet oak
Lord I hope heaven's a lot like my hometown

Hallelujah
Let my spirit lift to the sky
And tell I'm home again
In the sweet by and by
By and by

Well I've heard the preacher talkin' bout streets of gold
But I'll be fine forever
Walkin' these dirt roads
The homeplace ain't much to see
But it's magic enough for me
Lord I hope heaven's a lot like my hometown
Hey Lord I hope heaven's a lot like my hometown
Yeah

It's Good To Be Us Lyrics – Bucky Covington

Well baby, there ain't no maybe about it
I ain't made of money
So I know that you ain't hangin round for that
If it grew on trees
The branches on mine wouldn't have no leaves
On a shoe-string, saving every dime we made
No Cadillac cruising, no boat on a lake
Out in no-man's-land on an old two-lane
Yeah but we like it that way

It's good to be us,
good to be breathing
Day after night after day, this feeling
Feels the way it should
If this is as good as it gets, then good
It's good to be us

Aw, give me this air and give me this land
When I lay down at night girl, give me your hand
I can take any hurt this world has to give
As long as I got you, as long as I live
I'll make your life as sweet as I can
I'll move every mountain to be that man
That gives you space and a place to land
You wake up smiling, knowing that

It's good to be us,
good to be breathing

Day after night after day, this feeling
Feels the way it should
If this is as good as it gets, then good

It's better than best, yeah we got it made
In the shade, in the sun, in love this way - yeah
We got lucky baby, we've been blessed
Couldn't ask for more, wouldn't settle for less
It's good to be us, yeah, it's good to be us

It's good to be us,
good to be breathing
Day after night after day, this feeling
Feels the way it should
If this is as good as it gets, then good

It's better than best, yeah we got it made
In the shade, in the sun, in love this way - yeah
We got lucky baby, we've been blessed
Couldn't ask for more, wouldn't settle for less
It's good to be us, yeah, it's good to be us

Baby, it's good to be us
So good to be us

Carolina Blue Lyrics – Bucky Covington

There's something missing in the air tonight
That old rockingham moon knows just how to find
Here I am a thousand miles away
There ain't nothing like you girl here in LA
Chasing dreams and watching them come true
Everything is coming my way but you
But you

Oh I'm carolina blue and I'm surely missing you
And those smokey mountain eyes when you made everything right
Your voice gets me thru the night
But its breaking my heart just to know you are missing me
Girl thats whats keeping me carolina bue

We always talked about heading out west
Taing our chances leaving everything else
Standing here onthis coast alone
I think about you leaves one way to go
Come tomorrow we wont need a telephone
Dont look for me here cause I'll be gone
Well I'm coming home

Cause I'm carolina blue
And I'm surely missing you and those smokey mountain eyes
When you made everything right
Your voice gets me thru the night
But its breaking my heart just to know you're missing me
Girl thats whats keeping me

Till I'm back in your arms
There's only one thing to do
To hold on till its back
Just me and you

Oh I'm carolina blue
And I'm surely missing you and those
Smoky mountain eyes when you made
Everything right
Your voice gets me thru the night
But its breaking my heart just to know that you're missing me
Girl thats whats keeping me carolina blue
Carolina blue

The Bible And The Belt Lyrics – Bucky Covington

Well I grew up back in the sticks
I was raised on cornbread and scripture
And praise God for teachin' me wrong from right
I had a wild streak
Three counties wide
They would have me
Dead in the sack
It was the hand of God'
That got me out of the hands of the law

Mama taught the bible
Daddy wore the belt
Momma set the table
Daddy rang the bell
The preacher did his best to show me the light
But daddy was the one that kept me walkin' the line
Momma sang the gospel
Daddy drove it home
Momma was an angel
Daddy was the brimstone
One foot in heaven
One foot in hell
I found religion between the bible and the belt

I guess it rings true
But the good book says
What you learn young
You never forget
Daddy's belt left quite an impression on me

I can still hear
Momma's voice in the choir
She set the whole dang church on fire
And it still burns in the deepest part of me

Mama taught the bible
Daddy wore the belt
Momma set the table
Daddy rang the bell
The preacher did his best to show me the light
But daddy was the one that kept me walkin' the line
Momma sang the gospel
Daddy drove it home
Momma was an angel
Daddy was the brimstone
One foot in heaven
One foot in hell
I found religion between the bible and the belt

Mama taught the bible
Daddy wore the belt
Momma set the table
Daddy rang the bell
The preacher did his best to show me the light
But daddy was the one that kept me walkin' the line
Momma sang the gospel
Daddy drove it home
Momma was an angel
Daddy was the brimstone
One foot in heaven
One foot in hell
I found religion between the bible and the belt

A Father's Love (The Only Way He Knew How) Lyrics – Bucky Covington

For the longest time, I guess I thought
He didn't give a damn
Hard to read, hard to please
Yeah, that was my old man
On the day I left for college
It was nothing new
We never had that heart-to-heart
He had too much to do

[Chorus:]
He checked the air in my tires
The belts and all the spark plug wires
Said "When the hell's the last time
"You had this oil changed"
And as I pulled out the drive
He said "Be sure and call your mom sometime"
And I didn't hear it then
But I hear it now
He was saying "I love you"
(He was saying "I love you")
The only way he knew how

120,000 miles
Six years down the road
A brand new life and a brand new wife
We'd just bought our first home
When he finally came to visit
I thought he'd be so proud
He never said he liked the place
He just got his tool belt out

And put new locks on the doors
Went back and forth to the hardware store
Said "Come and hold this flashlight"
As he crawled beneath the sink
And "These old wires ain't up to code"
And "That circuit box is gonna overload"
And I didn't hear it then
But I hear it now
He was saying "I love you"
The only way he knew how

Last Sunday, we all gathered
For his 65th birthday
And I knew he'd stiffen up
But I hugged him anyway
When it was finally time to say goodbye
I knew what was next
Just like he always does
Right before we left

[Repeat Chorus]

He knew how

Gotta Be Somebody Lyrics – Bucky Covington

This time I wonder what it feels like
To find the one in this life
The one we all dream of
But dreams just aren't enough
So I´ll be waiting for the real thing.
I know it by the feeling.
The moment when we´re meeting
Will play out like a scene straight off the silver screen
So I`ll be holdin' my breath
Right up to the end
Until that moment when
I find the one that I spend forever with

`Cause nobody wants to be the last one there.
'Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There`s gotta be somebody for me like that.

`Cause nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they´re not alone.
Somebody else that feels the same somewhere.
There`s gotta be somebody for me out there.

Tonight out on the street out in the moonlight
And damn it this feels too right
It´s just like Déjà Vu
Me standin' here with you
So I´ll be holdin`my breath
Could this be the end?
Is it that moment when
I find the one that I spend forever with?

‘Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
'Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There´s gotta be somebody for me like that.

`Cause nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they´re not alone.
Is there somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There`s gotta be somebody for me out there.

You can´t give up!
Lookin´ for that diamond in the rough
Because you never know when it shows up
Make sure you´re holdin` on
‘Cause it could be the one, the one you´re waiting on

‘Cause nobody wants to be the last one there.
'Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There has gotta be somebody for me
Ohhhhhh.

Nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they´re not alone.
Is there somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There `s gotta be somebody for me out there.

Nobody wants to be the last one there
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Is there somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There has gotta be somebody for me out there.

I Want My Life Back lyrics - bucky covington

He was warmin' his hands with a hot coffee cup
Pourin' in whiskey as I walked up he never blinked an eye
He just asked for a light, I noticed he didn't have soles on his shoes
So I pulled out a twenty said go buy some food
But he just stared at his cup like I wasn't there
Then he looked at me said 'Son that's nice
But there's some things money can't buy',

[chorus]
I want my life back, I want that house that I called home,
I want that job I worked for twenty two years before I got laid off,
I want what I had when I laid down in the arms of the woman that believed in me
And the man I used to be, I want my life back

I walked through the door and sat down at the bar
Had a shot and a beer lit up a cigar it ran through my head,
Every word that old man said
I had a woman that loved me with all of her heart
But my pride and my temper made it all fall apart
I was to headstrong to admit when I was wrong
It's been six months since she moved out
Guess my pride ain't helping me now

[chorus 2]
I want my life back, I want that house that I called home,
I want to hear her voice and see her face every day when I get off
I want what I had when I laid down in the arms of the woman that believed in me
And the man I used to be, I want my life back

[bridge]
I paid my tab and left that bar
Grabbed my phone jumped in my car
I dialed her number and when she said hello ... I said

[chorus 3]
I want my life back, I want that house that I called home,
I want to hear your voice and see your face every day when I get off
I want what I had when I laid down in the arms of the woman that believed in me
And the man I used to be, I want my life back ... I want my life back.
