    Ain't Goin' Down (Til' The Sun Comes Up)

    Six o'clock on Friday evening
    Momma doesn' t know she's leaving
    'Til she hears the screen door slamming
    Rubber squealin', gears a-jamming
    Local country station just a blaring on the radio
    Pick him up at seven and they're headin' to the rodeo
    Momma's on the front porch screamin' out her warning
    Girl you better get your red head
    Back in bed before the morning

    Nine o'clock the show is ending
    But the fun is just beginning
    She knows he's anticipating
    But she's gonna keep him waiting
    Grab a bite to eat
    And then they're heading to the honkey tonk
    But loud crowds and line dancing
    Just ain't what they really want
    Drive out to the boondocks and park down by the creek
    And where it's George Strait 'til real late
    And dancing cheek to cheek

    Ain't going down 'til the sun comes up
    Ain't givin' in 'til they get enough
    Going 'round the world in a pickup truck
    Ain't goin' down 'til the sun comes up

    Ten 'til twelve is wine and dancing
    Midnight starts the hard romancing
    One o'clock that truck is rocking
    Two is coming, still no stopping
    Break to check the clock at three
    They're right on where they want to be
    Four o'clock get up and going
    Five o'clock that rooster's crowing

    Ain't going down 'til the sun comes up
    Ain't givin' in 'til they get enough
    Going 'round the world in a pickup truck
    Ain't goin' down 'til the sun comes up

    Six o'clock on Saturday
    Her folks don't know he's on his way
    The stalls are clean, the horses fed
    They say she's grounded 'til she's dead
    Well here he comes around the bend
    Slowing down, she's jumping in
    Hey mom, you're daughter's gone
    And there they go again

    Ain't going down 'til the sun comes up
    Ain't givin' in 'til they get enough
    Going 'round the world in a pickup truck
    Ain't goin' down 'til the sun comes up



    Rodeo

    his eyes are cold and restless
    His wounds have almost healed
    And she'd give half of Texas
    Just to change the way he feels
    She knows his love's in Tulsa
    She knows he's gonna go
    Well, it ain't no woman, flesh and blood
    It's that damned old rodeo

    Well, it's bulls and blood
    It's dust and mud
    It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
    It's the white in his knuckles
    The gold in the buckle
    He'll win the next go 'round
    It's boots and chaps
    It's cowboy hats
    It's spurs and latigo
    It's the ropes and the reins
    And the joy and the pain
    And they call the thing rodeo

    She does her best to hold him
    When his love comes to call
    But his need for it controls him
    And her back's against the wall
    And it's "So long girl, I'll see you."
    When it's time for him to go
    You know the woman wants her cowboy
    Like he wants his rodeo

    Well, it's bulls and blood
    It's dust and mud
    It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
    It's the white in the knuckles
    The gold in the buckle
    He'll win the next go 'round
    It's boots and chaps
    It's cowboy hats
    It's spurs and latigo
    It's the ropes and the reins
    And the joy and the pain
    And they call the thing rodeo

    It'll drive a cowboy crazy
    It'll drive the man insane
    And he'll sell off everything he owns
    Just to pay to play her game
    And a broken home and some broken bones
    Is all he'll have to show
    For all the years that he spent chasin'
    This dream they call rodeo

    Well, it's bulls and blood
    It's dust and mud
    It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
    It's the white in them knuckles
    The gold in the buckle
    He'll win the next go 'round
    It's boots and chaps
    It's cowboy hats
    It's spurs and latigo
    It's the ropes and the reins
    And the joy and the pain
    And they call the thing rodeo

    It's the broncs and the blood
    It's the steers and the mud
    And they call the thing rodeo



    The Beaches Of Cheyenne

    They packed up all his buckles
    And shipped his saddle to his dad
    By the way the house looked
    She must have took it bad
    The workers come on Monday
    To fix the door and patch the wall
    They say she just went crazy
    The night she got the call

    He was up in Wyoming
    And drew a bull no man could ride
    He promised her he'd turn out
    Well it turned out that he lied
    And their dreams that they'd been livin'
    In the California sand
    Died right there beside him in Cheyenne

    They she just went crazy
    Screamin' out his name
    She ran out into the ocean
    And to this day they claim
    That you can go down by the water
    Andl see her footprints in the sand
    'Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne

    They never found her body
    Just her diary by her bed
    It told about the fight they had
    And the words that she had said
    When he told her he was ridin'
    She said then I don't give a damn
    If you never come back from Cheyenne

    Nobody can explain it
    Some say she's still alive
    They even claim they've seen her
    On the shoreline late at night
    If you go down by the water
    You'll see her footprints in the sand
    'Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne

    'Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne



    Two Pina Colodas

    When she told me the news
    I was feelin' the blues
    When this fella came on TV
    He said I'm tellin' you
    That science has proved
    That heartaches are healed by the sea.
    That got me goin'
    Without even knowin'
    I packed right up and drove down
    Now I'm on a roll
    And I swear to my soul
    Tonight I'm gonna paint this town.

    So bring me two piña coladas
    I gotta have one for each hand
    Let's set sail with Captain Morgan
    And never leave dry land
    Troubles, I forgot 'em
    I buried them in the sand
    So bring me two piña coladas
    She said goodbye to her good timin' man.
    Goodbye!

    Oh now I've gotta say
    That the wind and the waves
    And the moon winkin' down at me
    Eases my mind
    By leavin' behind
    The heartaches that love often brings
    Now I've got a smile
    That goes on for miles
    With no inclination to roam
    I've gotta say
    That I think I've gotta stay
    'Cause this is feelin more and more like home

    So bring me two piña coladas
    I gotta have one for each hand
    Let's set sail with Captain Morgan
    And never leave dry land
    Hey troubles, I forgot 'em
    I buried them in the sand
    So bring me two piña coladas
    She said goodbye to her good timin man.

    Bring me two piña coladas
    I gotta have one for each hand
    Let's set sail with Captain Morgan
    Oh and never leave dry land
    Hey troubles, I forgot 'em
    I buried her in the sand
    So bring me two piña coladas
    Say hello to her good timin' man.

    Bring me two piña coladas
    I gotta have one for each hand
    Let's all set sail with Captain Morgan
    And never leave dry land
    Hey troubles, I forgot 'em
    I buried 'em in the sand
    So bring me two piña coladas
    She said goodbye to her good timin man.

    Bring me two piña coladas
    She said goodbye to her good timin man.



    Wild As The Wind

    Johnny grew up
    On the dark side of the law
    Livin' in the shadow
    Of the light he never saw

    Rosie came 'round
    In the way that true love does
    Just when you're lookin' elsewhere
    For the thing that never was

    Wild as the wind
    Wild as the wind is
    Wild as the wind is love

    Wild as the wind
    Wild as the wind is
    Wild as the wind is love

    So they team up
    And they traveled on thier way
    Lookin' for forever
    For every yesterday

    She brings him hope
    In the way that Angels do
    Takin' him to heaven
    In ways he never knew

    Wild as the wind
    Wild as the wind is
    Wild as the wind is love

    Wild as the wind



    To Make You Feel My Love

    When the rain's blowing in your face
    And the whole world is on your case
    I would offer you a warm embrace
    To make you feel my love

    Evening shadows
    And the stars appear
    And there is no one
    To dry your tears
    I would hold you for a million years
    To make you feel my love

    I know you haven't made your mind up yet
    But I would never do you wrong
    I've known it from the moment that we met
    There's no doubt in my mind where you belong

    I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
    I'd go crawling down the avenue
    There ain't nothing I wouldn't do
    To make you feel my love

    The storms are raging on a rollin' sea
    Down the highway of regret
    The winds of change are blowing wild and free
    You ain't seen nothing like me yet

    There ain't nothing that I wouldn't do
    Got to the ends of this earth for you
    Make you happy
    Make your dreams come true
    To make you feel my love



    That Summer

    I went to work for her that summer
    A teenage kid so far from home
    She was a lonely widow woman
    Hell-bent to make it on her own
    We were a thousand miles from nowhere
    Wheat fields as far as I could see
    Both needing something from each other
    Not knowing yet what that might be

    'Til she came to me one evening
    Hot cup of coffee and a smile
    In a dress that I was certain
    She hadn't worn in quite a while
    There was a difference in her laughter
    There was a softness in her eyes
    And on the air there was a hunger
    Even a boy could recognize

    She had a need to feel the thunder
    To chase the lightning from the sky
    To watch a storm with all its wonder
    Raging in her lover's eyes
    She had to ride the heat of passion
    Like a comet burning bright
    Rushing headlong in the wind
    Out where only dreams have been
    Burning both ends of the night

    That summer wind was all around me
    Nothing between us but the night
    When I told her that I'd never
    She softly whispered "That's alright"
    And then I watched her hands of leather
    Turn to velvet in a touch
    There's never been amother summer
    When I have ever loved as much

    She had a need to feel the thunder
    To chase the lightning from the sky
    To watch a storm with all its wonder
    Raging in her lover's eyes
    She had to ride the heat of passion
    Like a comet burning bright
    Rushing headlong in the wind
    Out where only dreams have been
    Burning both ends of the night

    I often think about that summer
    The sweat, the moonlight and the lace
    And I have rarely held another
    When I haven't seen her face
    And every time I pass a wheat field
    And watch it dancing with the wind
    Although I know it isn't real
    I swear inside I feel
    Her hungry arms again

    She had a need to feel the thunder
    To chase the lightning from the sky
    To watch a storm with all its wonder
    Raging in her lover's eyes
    She had to ride the heat of passion
    Like a comet burning bright
    Rushing headlong in the wind
    Out where only dreams have been
    Burning both ends of the night

    Rushing in long in the wind
    Out where only dreams have been
    Burnin' both ends of the night

    If Tommorrow Never Comes

    Sometimes late at night
    I lie awake and watch her sleeping
    She's lost in peaceful dreams
    So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
    And the thought crosses my mind
    If I never wake up in the morning
    Would she ever doubt the way I feel
    About her in my heart

    If tomorrow never comes
    Will she know how much I loved her
    Did I try in every way
    To show her every day
    That she's my only one
    If my time on earth were through
    And she must face the world without me
    Is the love I gave her in the past
    Gonna be enough to last
    If tomorrow never comes

    'Cause I've lost loved ones in my life
    Who never knew how much I loved them
    Now I live with the regret
    That my true feelings for them never were revealed
    So I made a promise to myself
    To say each day how much she means to me
    And avoid that circumstance
    Where there's no second chance
    To tell her how I feel

    If tomorrow never comes
    Will she know how much I loved her
    Did I try in every way
    To show her every day
    That she's my only one
    If my time on earth were through
    And she must face the world without me
    Is the love I gave her in the past
    Gonna be enough to last
    If tomorrow never comes

    So tell that someone that you love
    Just what you're thinking of
    If tomorrow never comes



    The Fever

    He's got a split finger wrap
    And a rope pulled way to tight
    He's got a lunatic smile
    'Cause he's really drawn deep tonight

    He's got a fever, fever, fever, fever
    Grab a hold of anything and hold on tight
    It hits you like the venom from a rattle snake bite
    We all here 'cause we're not all there tonight

    He takes one last breath
    And time turns inside out
    Then the gate busts open to the world he dreams about

    He's got a fever, fever, fever, fever
    Stick a rope on anything 'cause he don't care
    He'd even take a ride on the electric chair
    We all here cause we're not all there tonight

    He says it's really kind of simple
    Keep your mind in the middle
    While your butt spins 'round and 'round
    Take heed to Sankey's preachin'
    Keep liftin' and reachin'
    And ridin' like there ain't no clowns

    What he loves might kill him
    But he's got no choice
    He's a different breed
    With a voice down deep inside
    That's screamin' he was born to ride

    He's got a fever, fever, fever, fever
    Fever makes you crazy 'cause it makes no sense
    Like runnin' from your shadow out of self-defense
    But he won't run and baby he can't hide
    He thinks the odds are even leavin' one hand tied
    He gets so tired of hangin' on so tight
    I know you think he's crazy well I think you're right
    We all here 'cause we're not all there
    That's right



    Friends In Low Places (The Long Version)

    Blame it all on my roots
    I showed up in boots
    And ruined your black-tie affair
    The last one to know
    The last one to show
    I was the last one you thought you'd see there
    And I saw the surprise
    And the fear in his eyes
    When I took his glass of champagne
    And I toasted you
    Said "Honey, we may be through
    But you'll never hear me complain"

    'Cause I've got friends in low places
    Where the whiskey drowns
    And the beer chases my blues away
    And I'll be okay
    I'm not big on social graces
    Think I'll slip on down to the Oasis
    Oh, I've got friends in low places

    (INSTRUMENTAL BREAK)

    Well I guess I was wrong
    I just don't belong
    But then, I've been there before
    Everything's alright
    I'll just say goodnight
    And I'll show myself to the door
    Hey, I didn't mean
    To cause a big scene
    Just give me an hour and then
    Well, I'll be as high as that ivory tower
    That you're livin' in

    'Cause I've got friends in low places
    Where the whiskey drowns
    And the beer chases my blues away
    And I'll be okay
    I'm not big on social graces
    Think I'll slip on down to the Oasis
    Oh, I've got friends in low places

    EVERYBODY!

    I've got friends in low places
    Where the whiskey drowns
    And the beer chases my blues away
    And I'll be okay
    I'm not big on social graces
    Think I'll slip on down to the Oasis
    Oh, I've got friends in low places

    (SPOKEN)
    (Pause)
    What?!?!
    (Pause)
    You guys... already know what's comin', don't ya?
    And ya know what... you're right.
    You're exactly right. What would a Garth Live album
    be without the live version of Friends In Low Places?
    Because it's only here where you can find that
    mysterious third verse that goes on the end of that
    song. But, does anybody know the words to that
    verse? That's what I wanna know.
    Well, in that case I think the friends in low places
    should sing that third verse.
    This outta be good.
    Alright, here we go...

    (SUNG BY CROWD)
    Well I guess I was wrong
    I just don't belong
    But then I've been there before
    Everything's alright
    I'll just say goodnight
    And I'll show myself to the door
    Hey, I didn't mean
    To cause a big scene
    Just wait till I finish this glass
    And sweet little lady
    I'll head back to the bar
    GIVE IT TO ME!!!
    And you can kiss my ass!

    (SUNG BY GARTH)
    'Cause I've got friends in low places
    Where the whiskey drowns
    And the beer chases my blues away
    And I'll be okay
    I'm not big on social graces
    Guess I'll slip on down to the Oasis
    Oh, I've got friends in low places

    NOW IT'S ALL YOU GUYS
    (SUNG BY CROWD)
    'Cause I've got friends in low places
    Where the whiskey drowns
    And the beer chases my blues away
    And I'll be okay
    I'm not big on social graces
    Think I'll slip on down to the Oasis
    Oh, I've got friends in low places

    (SUNG BY GARTH)
    I've got friends in low places
    Where the whiskey drowns

    And I'll be okay
    I'm not big on social graces

    Oh, I've got friends in low places

    Honey, I've got friends in low places...



    The Dance

    Looking back on the memory of
    The dance we shared beneath the stars above
    For a moment all the world was right
    How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye

    And now I'm glad I didn't know
    The way it all would end the way it all would go
    Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
    But I'd of had to miss the dance

    Holding you I held everything
    For a moment wasn't I the king
    But if I'd only known how the king would fall
    Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all

    And now I'm glad I didn't know
    The way it all would end the way it all would go
    Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
    But I'd of had to miss the dance

    It's my life is better left to chance
    I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance
