Song lyrics[edit]

Toby Keith (1993)[edit]

  • I should've been a cowboy.
    I should've learned to rope and ride.
    Wearing my six-shooter, riding my pony on a cattle drive
    Stealing the young girls' hearts
    Just like Gene and Roy
    Singing those campfire songs.
    I should've been a cowboy.
  • Oh he ain't worth missin'
    Oh we should be kissin'
    Stop all this foolish wishin'
    He ain't worth missin'
    I know your head is turnin'
    I know your heart is burnin'
    Girl you gotta listen
    Don't you know he ain't worth missin'
  • I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then
    I wish I could start this whole thing over again
    I'm not sayin' it's you could never be true
    I just don't wanna know how it ends
    You'd still have my heart in the palm of your hands
    I'd still look like a fool in front of your friends
    Yeah I wish somehow I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Boomtown (1994)[edit]

  • That's my house and that's my car
    That's my dog in my backyard
    There's the window to the room
    Where she lays her pretty head

    I planted that tree out by the fence
    Not long after we moved in
    That's my kids and that's my wife
    Who's that man, runnin' my life?

  • Yeah I'm in love with the girl in the four-wheel drive
    Chrome steel bumpers and red step side
    She has a large time in her large machine
    Man I wonder how she gets up in that thing
    It casts a big shadow sittin' in the sun
    She's got it revved up rockin' ready to run
    And someday soon I'm gonna climb right up
    And take a little ride in her big ol' truck.

Blue Moon (1996)[edit]

  • Lately I've been lookin' through the windows of my soul
    And I can see there's not much left to hold
    Just an empty space surrounded by the pieces of
    A badly broken heart that's forgotten how to love.
  • Day by day, we let love just walk away
    And I'll be the first to say, I was glad to see it go
    And day by day, ever since you went away
    I'm finding I'm still missing you, and I just got to know...

    Does that blue moon ever shine on you?
    I wanna hold you close to me, feel just like it used to be.
    And baby, if you feel like I do,
    You can come to me.

  • Oh I'm just a man, that's the way I was made.
    I'm not too good at sayin' what you need me to say.
    It's always right there on the tip of my tongue.
    It might go unsaid but it won't go undone.
    So when those three little words come so easy to you,
    I hope you know what I mean when I say, me too.

Dream Walkin' (1997)[edit]

  • Ooo there's a thin line between dreams and memories
    I'll be losin' my mind 'til she comes back to me.

How Do You Like Me Now?! (1999)[edit]

  • How do you like me now?
    How do you like me now,
    Now that I'm on my way?
    Do you still think I'm crazy,
    Standin here today?
    I couldn't make you love me.
    But I always dreamed about living in your radio.
    How do you like me now?
  • I run around with hillbilly girls
    The weekend sits on my hillbilly world
    You better be ready when the sun goes down
    That's when country comes to town.
  • You shouldn't kiss me like this
    Unless you mean it like that
    Cause I'll just close my eyes
    And I won't know where I'm at.
    We'll get lost on this dance floor,
    Spinnin' around
    And around
    And around
    And around.

Pull My Chain (2001)[edit]

  • Well, I'm not talkin' bout locking down forever, baby.
    That would be too demanding.
    I'm just talkin' bout two lonely people
    Who might reach a little understanding.
    I'm not talkin' bout knocking out heaven
    with whether we're wrong or we're right.
    I'm not talkin' bout hooking up and hanging out,
    I'm just talkin' bout tonight.

Unleashed (2002)[edit]

  • Hey Uncle Sam
    Put your name at the top of his list
    And the Statue of Liberty
    Started shaking her fist.
    And the eagle will fly
    Man, it's gonna be hell
    When you hear Mother Freedom
    Start ringing her bell
    And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
    Brought to you Courtesy of the Red White and Blue.
    • Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue (The Angry American).
  • Justice will be served
    And the battle will rage
    This big dog will fight
    When you rattle his cage.
    And you'll be sorry that you messed with
    The U.S. of A.
    'Cause we'll put a boot in your ass,
    It's the American way.
    • Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue (The Angry American).
  • Who's your daddy? Who's your baby?
    Who's your buddy? Who's your friend?
    And who's the one guy that you come runnin' to
    When your lovelife starts tumblin'?

    I got the money if you got the honey
    Let's cut a deal, let's make a plan
    Who's your daddy? Who's your baby?
    Who's your buddy? Who's your man?

  • Grand pappy told my pappy back in my day son
    A man had to answer for the wicked that he'd done
    Take all the rope in Texas, find a tall oak tree
    Round up all of them bad boys, hang them high in the street
    For all the people to see

    That justice is the one thing you should always find
    You got to saddle up your boys, you got to draw a hard line
    When the gun smoke settles, we'll sing a victory tune
    And we'll all meet back at the local saloon.
    We'll raise up our glasses against Evil forces singing
    Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses.

  • I’m gonna rock you baby to sleep
    I’m gonna make you crazy over me
    I’m gonna hold you like you’ve never been held before
    And love you till you tell me you can’t love anymore
    I’m gonna shake your emotion right down to your soul
    And then I’m gonna love you all over in and out of control
    If this is how love is supposed to feel
    Baby I know I’ve fallen head over heels
    I’m gonna rock you baby.

Shock'n Y'all (2003)[edit]

  • We got winners, we got losers
    Chain smokers and boozers
    And we got yuppies, we got bikers
    We got thirsty hitchhikers.
    And the girls next door dress up like movie stars.
    Hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm I love this bar.

    We got cowboys, we got truckers
    Broken-hearted fools and suckers
    And we got hustlers, we got fighters
    Early-birds and all-nighters
    And the veterans talk about their battle scars.
    Hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm I love this bar.

  • She ain't into wine and roses
    Beer just makes her turn up her nose and
    She can't stand the thought of sipping champagne
    No Cuervo gold margaritas
    Just ain't enough good burn in tequila
    She needs somethin' with a little more edge
    And a little more pain
    She's my little whiskey girl, she's my little whiskey girl
    My ragged on the edges girl, ah but I like em rough.
  • I don't do it for the money
    There's bills that I can't pay
    I don't do it for the glory
    I just do it anyway.
    Providing for our future's my responsibility.
    Yeah I'm real good under pressure
    Being all that I can be.

    And I can't call in sick on Mondays
    When the weekends been too strong
    I just work straight through the holidays
    And sometimes all night long
    You can bet that I stand ready when the wolf growls at the door
    Hey, I'm solid, hey I'm steady, hey, I'm true down to the core.

  • And I will always do my duty no matter what the price
    I've counted up the cost, I know the sacrifice.
    Oh, and I don't want to die for you,
    But if dyin's asked of me,
    I'll bear that cross with honor,
    'Cause freedom don't come free.

    I'm an American soldier, an American
    Beside my brothers and my sisters I will proudly take a stand
    When Liberty's in jeopardy, I will always do what's right
    I'm out here on the front line
    Sleep in peace tonight
    American soldier, I'm an American soldier.

    • American Soldier.

Honkytonk University (2005)[edit]

  • I've played every beer joint tavern from New York City out to Pasadena
    Every corn dog fair and rodeo
    And sold out every basketball arena
    I like to get down with my boys in Afghanistan and Baghdad city too
    I am a red, white and blue blood graduate of Honkytonk U.
  • I ain't as good as I once was
    I got a few years on me now.
    But there was a time back in my prime
    When I could really lay it down.
    And if you need some love tonight,
    Then I might have just enough.
    I ain't as good as I once was,
    But I'm as good once as I ever was.

White Trash with Money (2006)[edit]

  • Well all week long I'm a real nobody,
    But I just punched out and its paycheck Friday,
    Weekends here, good God almighty,
    I'm going to get drunk and be somebody.

Big Dog Daddy (2007)[edit]

  • See my baby doll
    She's my beauty queen
    She's my movie star
    Best I ever seen
    I ain't hooked it up yet
    But I'm tryin' hard as I can
    It's just a high maintenance woman
    Don't want no maintenance man.

That Don't Make Me a Bad Guy (2008)[edit]

  • How was I supposed to know?
    She was slowly letting go?
    If I was puttin her through her hell,
    Hell I couldn't tell.

    She could've given me a sign,
    Could've opened up my eyes.
    How was I supposed to see?
    She never cried in front of me.

American Ride (2009)[edit]

  • I'm gonna miss that smile, I'm gonna miss you my friend
    Even though it hurts the way it ended up, I'd do it all again
    So play it sweet in heaven 'cause that's right where you wanna be
    I'm not cryin' 'cause I feel so sorry for you, I'm cryin' for me.

Bullets in the Gun (2010)[edit]

  • Music’s playin’ up and down the block
    Mostly Christian, Blues, Country, Folk, and Southern Rock
    It’s our little piece of paradise way out here in the woods
    There is always somethin’ goin’ on down in the trailerhood.
