    Bourbon In Kentucky

    "Bourbon In Kentucky”
    (feat. Kacey Musgraves)

    There ain't enough
    Bourbon in Kentucky
    For me to forget you
    No there ain't enough
    Matches I can strike
    To set afire the memory of you

    Up goes down
    Right's gone left me behind
    Wheels spin 'round
    Reverse stuck in my mind

    There ain't enough
    Bourbon in Kentucky
    For me to forget you
    No there ain't enough
    Bottles I could break
    To make 'em feel as broken as I do

    Stack up every barrel
    Since the day it was made
    Satisfaction guaranteed to kill the pain
    But there ain't enough
    Kisses from a stranger
    On a long wild night to ever make it alright
    If it ain't you

    In my arms, in my bed
    Yeah to hell with all the rest
    Once you've had the best, nothing else will do
    What's the use

    There ain't enough
    Bourbon in Kentucky
    For me to forget you
    No there ain't enough
    Bottles I could drink
    To make 'em feel as empty as I do

    With my mouth wide open
    In a whiskey rain
    I could stand there 24 hours a day

    But there ain't enough
    Bourbon in Kentucky
    For me to forget you
    No there ain't enough
    Bottles I could drink
    To make 'em feel as empty as I do
    No there ain't enough
    Bourbon in Kentucky
    For me to forget you
    So forget you

    Here On Earth

    Standing here on this cold ground Tears falling down in the dirt This world keeps spinning round and round but You're lying still in the dirt Don't wanna swim in this darkness Drown in a whiskey sea But there's no making sense of the senseless while this Pain is killing me There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched The only answer I found for all this hurt Is there ain't not answer here on earth I ain't the best of believers Ain't at the front of the church I've read the words of the teacher but I Still struggle with what it's all worth cause There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched The only answer I found for all this hurt Is there ain't not answer here on earth I wish that I could be stronger I wanna have that kind of faith But even if I did, I still wonder 'cause Nothing would change You're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone 'Cause you're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone Please help me believe I'm on my knees Help me believe There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched The only answer I found for all this hurt Is there ain't not answers here on earth Down here on earth There's no answers here on earth

    Sounds Of Summer

    It's a tractor firin' up Kids playin' in a field Four wheels gettin' stuck A line singin' out a fishin' reel It's a cooler slidin' in the bed of a truck A tin roof drippin' rain Your baby sayin', come pick me up Take me down to the riverbank These are sounds goin' down in a nowhere town Underneath the wide open sky It's the dust in the air and the freedom everywhere Can't you hear it comin' alive? Makes you wanna drop it down a gear And kill a couple of beers Been waitin' all year, now it's finally here Back around, these are the sounds of summer It's the flick of a lighter lightin' up a little smoke Boots climbin' barbwire, a little spot nobody goes Lawn chairs breakin' out in the yard to the firework boom Hearin' a heart beatin' in the dark, sayin' that she wants to These are sounds goin' down in a nowhere town Underneath the wide open sky It's the dust in the air and the freedom everywhere Can't you hear it comin' alive? Makes you wanna drop it down a gear And kill a couple of beers Been waitin' all year, now it's finally here Back around, these are the sounds of summer Yeah the sounds of summer 'Round here that's what it's all about So listen up and look around It's who we are, it's what we love So tonight let's crank 'em up These sounds goin' down in a nowhere town Underneath the wide open sky It's the dust in the air and the freedom everywhere Can't you hear it comin' alive? It goes way too fast, it all disappears And when it's gone, we'll still be here Hangin' 'round, missin' the sounds of summer Missin' the sounds of summer The sounds of summer Yeah, the sounds of summer
