"Up On The Ridge" (2010)

Up On The Ridge Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Let's blow out these city lights
Let's just leave it all behind
Get up where the air is still
You can hear the whippoorwill
Start a fire pass the shine
Won't be home till mornin' time
Shout your name out in the wind
Confess my love for you again
Give you all I got to give
That's how we live up on the ridge

Won't you come with me tonight
Where moonlight drifts into your eyes
I just want one little kiss
When we get high up on the ridge

Hey now honey child
We'd be runnin' free and wild
No one care what you do
Ain't law to answer to
Dance around in the dirt
Listen to them crickets chirp
Hear old Jake start to howl
When he hears that ol' hoot owl
Give you all I got to give
That's how we live up on the ridge

Won't you come with me tonight
Were moonlight drifts into your eyes
I just want one little kiss
When we get high up on the ridge

Come on girl its almost dawn
Let's get it fore the magic gone
Tall, tall grass all around
Come on lay that blanket down
Wild flowers just like you
Lay on me like mornin dew
Now take my hand walk with me
Sun come up through them trees
Give you all I got to give
That's how we live up on the ridge

Won't you come with me tonight
Where moonlight drifts into your eyes
I just want one little kiss
When we get high up on the ridge

I just want one little kiss
When we get high up on the ridge

Fallin' For You Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

I can't stand this fallin' for you
Every time I see you, I keep crawlin' towards you
I can't take this achin' feelin'
This cold heart breakin' feelin'
I can't stand this fallin' for you

Well I hang my head by the riverside
Burst its banks with the tears I've cried
The ripples roll out to the sea
I wish they was washin' over me

I can't stand this fallin' for you
Every time I see you, I keep crawlin' towards you
I can't take this achin' feelin'
This cold heart breakin' feelin'
I can't stand this fallin' for you
Every time I see you, I keep crawlin' towards you
I can't take this achin' feelin'
This cold heart breakin' feelin'
I can't stand this fallin' for you

Well your blood is red but your soul is black
Don't believe I'm a comin' back
And now I know why the willows weep
The tide is high and the water's deep

I can't stand
i can't take
I can't stand this fallin' for you
Every time I see you, I keep crawlin' towards you
I can't take this achin' feelin'
This cold heart breakin' feelin'
I can't stand this fallin' for you
Every time I see you, I keep crawlin' towards you
I can't take this achin' feelin'
This cold heart breakin' feelin'
I can't stand
I can't take
I can't stand this fallin' for you

Senor (Tales Of Yankee Power) Lyrics – Dierks Bentley (with The Punch Brothers feat. Chris Thile)

Senor, senor, can you tell me where we're headin'
Lincoln County Road or Armageddon
Seems like I been down this way before
Is there any truth in that, senor

Senor, senor, do you know where she's hidin'
How long are we gonna be ridin'
How long must I keep my eyes glued to the door
Will there be any comfort there, senor

There's a wicked wind still blowing on that upper deck
And there's an iron cross still hanging from around her neck
There's a marching band still playing in that vacant lot
Where's she held me in her arms one time and said
"Forget me not"

Senor, senor, I can see that painted wagon
Smell the tail of the dragon
I can't stand the suspense here anymore
Can you tell me who to contact here, senor

Well, the last thing I remember before I stripped and kneeled
Was that trainload of fools bogged down in a magnetic field
And a gypsy with a broken flag and flashing ring
Said "Son, this ain't a dream no more, it's the real thing"

Senor, senor, you know their hearts are hard as leather
Give me a minute, let me get it together
I gotta pick myself up off the floor
I'm ready when you are, senor

Senor, senor, let's overturn these tables
And disconnect these cables
This place don't make sense to me no more
Can you tell me what we're waiting for, senor

Rovin' Gambler Lyrics – Dierks Bentley (with The Punch Brothers)

I am the rovin' gambler, I've gambled all around
Whenever I meet with the deck of cards,
I lay my money down
I lay my money down, I lay my money down

Had not been in Frisco many more weeks than three
Yea I met up with a pretty little girl,
She fell in love with me
Fell in love with me, fell in love with me

She took me to her parlor, she cooled me with her fan
Whispered low in her mother's ear "I love this gamblin' man"
Love this gamblin man, love this gablin' man

Daughter oh dear daughter, how can you treat me so
Leave your dear old mother and with the gambler go
With the gambler go, with the gambler go

I left her in Frisco and I wound up in Maine
I met up with a poker player and got in a poker game
Got in a poker game, got in a poker game

He put his money in the pot and dealt the cards around
I saw him deal from the bottom of the deck, shot the gambler down
Shot the gambler down, shot the gambler down

Now I'm down in prison, got a number for my name
The warden slammed the door and said "You've gambled your last game"
Gambled your last game, gambled your last game
Gambled your last game, gambled your last game

Draw Me A Map Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Staring deep into your eyes
Searching for answers to questions I can't find
If I took for granted that I held your heart
I'd beg forgiveness but I don't know where to start

Draw me a map that leads me back to you
I don't know where to go, please tell me what to do
Help me find the road you're on
I just need directions home
Draw me a map that leads me back to you

I've never been so at loss
I'm at a canyon I can't get around or cross
So baby come down here, lay by my side
And tell me love's not lost across the great divide

Draw me a map that leads me back to you
I don't know where to go, please tell me what to do
Help me find the road you're on
I just need directions home
Draw me a map that leads me back to you

You're my destiny and destination
Understand my desperation - you
The only place I wanna be
So get us back to you and me

Draw me a map that leads me back to you
I don't know where to go, please tell me what to do
Help me find the road you're on
I just need directions home
Draw me a map that leads me back to you

Bad Angel Lyrics – Dierks Bentley (feat. Miranda Lambert, Jamey Johnson)

Bad angel, get off of my shoulder
Bad angel, let me be
I'm standing at the cross roads
of Temptation and Salvation Street

I woke up bound and determined
That I would not light it up today
But one drag would stop my shakin'
Right now I could go either way

Bad angel, get off of my shoulder now
Bad angel, let me be
I'm standing at the cross roads
of Temptation and Salvation Street

[Miranda Lambert]
Well the cap is on the bottle
and the bottle is on the shelf
Should I take it or leave it?
Honey, how am I gonna help myself?

Bad angel, get off of my shoulder (get on off of my shoulder)
Bad angel, let me be (oh let me be)
I'm standing at the cross roads
of Temptation and Salvation Street

[Jamey Johnson]
Well I know I should not gamble
'Cause I can't afford to lose
She'd hang me from the rafters
Put the laces in my old working shoes

Bad angel, get off of my should
Bad angel, let me be
I'm standing at the cross roads
of Temptation and Salvation Street
Yes I'm standing at the cross roads
of Temptation and Salvation
Temptation and Salvation
Temptation and Salvation Street

Fiddlin' Around Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Up in the window light tonight
Where I can see your silhouette
I've been throwin' little stones
But I don't believe you've even heard me yet

Today you crossed your heart
And said you'd meet me in the dark
When I called you on the phone
You pretended you weren't home

Hey baby, what do you say
Won't you come on outside tonight
The moon is finally shinin' bright as day
Hey what do you say
Can't you hear the music in the wind
And see our shadows on the ground
Aw won't you come on down
We're gonna do a little fiddlin' around

Can't ya hear the banjo's ringin' through the air
There'll be mandolins and guitars everywhere
Now don't you wanna be there

Hey baby, what do you say
Won't you come on outside tonight
The moon is finally shinin' bright as day
Hey what do you say
Can't you hear the music in the wind
And see our shadows on the ground
Aw won't you come on down
We're gonna do a little fiddlin' around

If you'd look outside, you'd see the lights
Of my old corvette
Are you tryin' to drive me crazy babe
Or did you just forget

Hey baby, what do you say
Won't you come on outside tonight
The moon is finally shinin' bright as day
Hey what do you say
Can't you hear the music in the wind
And see our shadows on the ground
Aw won't you come on down
We're gonna do a little fiddlin' around

You're Dead To Me Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Well come on in and sit right down
Surprised to see you're still around
You broke my heart, that's history
I'm still alive and you're dead to me

I hung the crapes up on my door
I cried for you six months or more
I gave a heartfelt eulogy
I said goodbye, you're dead to me

It didn't take a gun, didn't take a knife
I don't have to take your life
To bury you beneath the weeds
I'm over you, you're dead to me

It's plain to see you're above the ground
You haunt the streets of this old town
You're still as fine as fine can be
Well that's good for you, you're dead to me

It didn't take a gun, didn't take a knife
I don't have to take your life
To bury you beneath the weeds
I'm over you, you're dead to me

So let me pour you a glass of wine
I'll leave the poison out this time
Already killed your memory
So here's to you, you're dead to me
Already kileld your memory
Don't take this wrong, you're dead to me

Pride (In The Name Of Love) Lyrics – Dierks Bentley (feat. Del McCoury with The Punch Brothers)

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come here to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Early morning, April 4
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Love Grows Wild Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

There's a place where love grows wild
Where hearts can trust just like a child
A wild thing, it don't need a lot
It just grows on what it's it got
It still grows no matter what

I used to be too hard to care
But till you do, you ain't nowhere
Once I just threw love away
But that fool was yesterday
Now my heart is home to stay

Wild things grow on less than a little
And darling I know it'll be
You and me right down in the middle
Where love grows wild

Gave up all those valentines
Now I just want the one that's mine
I will say I love you so
When I do it, you will know
Darling I will never go

Wild things grow on less than a little
And darling I know it'll be
You and me right down in the middle
Where love grows wild

You give me the sweetest love
You must be straight from above
And you're so good at loving me
You're so fine, it's plain to see
This was surely meant to be

Wild things grow on less than a little
And darling I know it'll be
You and me right down in the middle
Where love grows wild

There's a place where love grows wild

Bottle To The Bottom Lyrics – Dierks Bentley (feat. Kris Kristofferson)

You ask me if I'm happy now
That's good as any joke I've heard
It seems since I've seen you last
I done forget the meaning of the words
If happiness is empty rooms
And drinkin' in the afternoon
Well I guess I'm as happy as a clam
But if it's got a thing to do
With smilin' or forgettin' you
Well I don't guess that I could say I am

Did you ever see a down and outer waking up alone
Without a blanket on to keep him from the dew
When the water from the weeds had soaked the papers
He'd been puttin' in his shoes to keep the ground from comin' though
And his future feels as empty as the pockets in his pants
Because he's never seen a single dream come true
That's the way that I've been feelin' since the day I started falling
From the bottle to the bottom stool by stool
Learnin' hard to live with losin' you

You wonder if I'm better off
With freedom now to do the things I choose
Well all my times my own and
I've got nothin' left but sleepin' time to lose
There's no one here to carry on
If I stay out the whole night long
Or give a tinkers damn if I don't call
I'm livin' like I wanted to
And doin' things I wanna do
And nothin' means a thing to me at all

Did you ever see a down and outer waking up alone
Without a blanket on to keep him from the dew
When the water from the weeds had soaked the papers
He'd been puttin' in his shoes to keep the ground from comin' though
And his future feels as empty as the pockets in his pants
Because he's never seen a single dream come true
That's the way that I've been feelin' since the day I started falling
From the bottle to the bottom stool by stool
Learnin' hard to live with losin' you

Down In The Mine Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Here in Harlan County, the choices are few
To keep food on the table and the babies in shoes
You can grow marijuana way back in the pines
Or work for the man down in the mine

You never forget your first day in the hole
There's a pit in your stomach and your mouth's full of coal
There's no turning back once you make up your mind
As the cart rattles on down in the mine

Way down in the mine, your tears turn to mud
And you can't catch your breath for the dust in your lungs
Loading hillbilly gold where the sun never shines
Twelve hours a day, diggin' your grave
Way down in the mine

Well the old timers talk but you just don't believe
It can all go to hell at two thousand feet
Life sways in the balance of nature and time
And fate has no mercy down in the mine

The news spreads like fire and burned through those hills
Hopes were held high but five men got killed
On the wings of canaries, your soul surely flies
While your bones spend eternity down in the mine

Way down in the mine, your tears turn to mud
And you can't catch your breath for the dust in your lungs
Loading hillbilly gold where the sun never shines
Twelve hours a day, diggin' your grave
Way down in the mine

So take a flask from your crib can can and a pull of moonshine
And say a prayer for them boys down in the mine

"Feel That Fire" (2009)

Life On The Run Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

She never knew my name
Least not the one my Daddy gave me
I took off the way I came
Moonlight reflecting off the chrome
She didn't want my story, so I didn't have to lie
If I loved her it was only for a night

Living life on the run
You can't give your heart to no one
Your only friend is the setting sun
I didn't do what they said I done
I gotta stay one step ahead
Or one of these days I'm gonna wake up dead
Dropped in my tracks by a bullet from a lawman's gun
Oh, you can't rest a minute
When you're living on the run

The white lines on the road
That's the only trail I leave behind me
Been chasinghighline poles
Ever since the night i skipped out of town
somewhere in the distance i where I need to be
All I care about right now is speed

Living life on the run
You can't give your heart to no one
Your only friend is the setting sun
I didn't do what they said I done
I gotta stay one step ahead
Or one of these days I'm gonna wake up dead
Dropped in my tracks by a bullet from a lawman's gun
Oh, you can't rest a minute
When you're living life on the run

Here they come no, gotta lay low
Done bent the law till the law got broke
Here they come now, gotta lay low
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Here they come now, they're closing in
Pack of blood hounds gonna catch my sent
Here they come now, now I'm gone again

Yeah
Living life on the run
You can't give your heart to no one
You can't rest a minute when you're living life on the run
No, you can't rest a minute when your're living life
On the run

Sideways Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

[Verse 1]
Hey girl, what's your name?
It's so loud in here I can't hear a thing,
But I sure do like your style,
And I can see you came to rock
In your blue jeans and white tank top;
Man that look drives me wild.

[Chorus]
And it's hey now here we go.
D-j don't you play nothing slow
Keep those girls out on the floor
Gotta make them want to come back for more.
Been here since the sun went down,
Be here when it comes back around
Worked all week it's time to play
Gonna get a little bit sideways...
Sideways.

[Verse 2]
Ain't no need to fight
Y'all take that redneck stuff outside
That's what parking lots are for.
Once you're out you ain't coming back
The man on the ropes ain't got no slack.
Man they're busting down the door!

[Chorus]
And it's hey now here we go
D-J don't you play nothing slow
Keep those girls out on the floor
Gotta make 'em wanna come back for more.
Been here since the sun went down
Be here when it comes back around
Worked all week it's time to play
Gonna get a little bit sideways...
Sideways.

[Bridge]
That's right

Hey now here we go
(hey now here we go)
D-j don't you play nothing slow
Gotta make 'em wanna (what?)...
Gotta make 'em wanna (what?)...
Gotta make 'em wanna come back for more.

[Chorus]
Hey now here we go
D-J don't you play nothing slow
Keep those girls out on the floor
Gotta make 'em wanna come back for more
Been here since the sun went down
Be here when it comes back around
Worked all week it's time to play
Gonna get a little bit sideways (na na na na na)...
Sideways...sideways...sideways

Hey girl what's your name?
It's so loud in here I can't hear a thing....

Feel That Fire Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

She wants her nails painted black
She wants the toy in the Cracker Jack
She wants to ride the bull at the rodeo

She wants to wear my shirt to bed
She wants to make every stray a pet
And drive around in my truck with no place to go

But she needs to feel that fire
The one that lets her know for sure
She’s everything I want and more
A real desire, that lets her know I’d walk alone out on the wire
to make her feel that fire.

She wants a cabin in the woods
She wants to stand where nobody stood
Someday she wants a couple kids of her own

She wants to make love on a train
Some day’s she only wants a break
Hey she wants what she wants, and man I know I know I know

She needs to feel that fire
The one that lets her know for sure
She’s everything I want and more
A real desire, that lets her know I’d walk alone out on the wire
to make her feel that fire.
Yeah feel that fire

So as long as there’s a breath to take
A smile to share, A prayer to bring
A chance to hold her hand and fan the flame

She’s gonna feel that fire
The one that lets her know for sure
She’s everything I want and more
A real desire, that lets her know I’d walk alone out on the wire
Yeah to make her feel that fire. Whoa
Feel that fire

She wants her nails painted black
She wants the toy in the Cracker Jack
She wants to ride the bull at the rodeo

I Wanna Make You Close Your Eyes Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Girl I've been waitin on this long hard day to get over
So i can rest my head right here on your shoulder
I just wanna lay here and feel you breathe
Listen to the rhythm of your heartbeat
And see where it leads...

We're wide awake but girl I wanna make you close your eyes
And say my name like only you can say it and hold me tight
All I need is only you and me alone tonight
I wanna make you close your eyes...oh yeah...

You can make me work for it girl if you want to
Just leave a trail for me to follow you into the bedroom
And if you need a little bit of help from me
Babe there's not a button that I cant reach
Lets see where it leads

We're wide awake but girl I wanna make you close your eyes
And say my name like only you can say it and hold me tight
All I need is only you and me alone tonight
I wanna make you close your eyes

I wanna take you somewhere...out there...
'Til the world fades out of sight

We're wide awake but girl I wanna make you close your eyes
And say my name like only you can say it and hold me tight... just hold me tight
All I need is only you and me alone tonight
Yeah.. I wanna make you close your eyes...oh

I wanna make you close your eyes...oh
Girl... I wanna make you close your eyes

Here She Comes, Here We Go Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Here she comes, down the road
Rattling the gravel with the radio
Kicking out, some loud, honky tonk song
Here we go, buckle up
Put us both together in a pick up truck
Gonna be, memories, all night long
Might get wild I know
But here she comes, here we go

Ready or not
When she pulls the trigger I'm a load of buckshot
One little kiss
It's a match to the fuse, the last bell at school
A kick to the bull at the rodeo
Here she comes, here we go

Here she comes, with a plan
Said she heard about a joint with a country band
Where they play, George Strait, that's all
Here we go, walking in
She's making every hat in the whole place spin
Around, checking out, that walk
Girls wish she'd just stay home
But here she comes, here we go

Ready or not
When she pulls the trigger I'm a load of buckshot
One little kiss
It's a match to the fuse, the last bell at school
A kick to the bull at the rodeo
Here she comes, here we go

Here she comes, with that look
That says she'd rather be alone and that's all it took
Here we go, out to that spot
Where we turn on the radio and the headlights off
Now she's moving in real close
Here she comes, here we go

Ready or not
When she pulls the trigger, I'm a load of buckshot
One little kiss
It's a match to the fuse, the last bell at school
Ready or not
When she pulls the trigger, I'm a load of buckshot
One little kiss
It's a match to the fuse, the last bell at school
A kick to the bull at the rodeo
Here she comes, here we go

I Can't Forget Her Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

She found a cowboy
And I hear they settled down somewhere out west
Well I guess it's for the best
Here in Del Rio
Nothing seems to change except the weather
And I can't forget her

She goes running through my mind
Like that Rio Grande River winds through the desert
And I can't forget her
No I can't forget her

There's a senorita
Who waits just over the borderline
For me tonight
And I could hold her
And this tequila could help me love her
But there's still another

She goes running through my mind
Like that Rio Grande River winds through the desert
And I can't forget her
No I can't forget her

These endless starlit nights
Remind me of her eyes
This warm prairie breeze
Is like her arms wrapped around me

She goes running through my mind
Like that Rio Grande River winds through the desert
And I can't forget her
No I can't forget her

She found a cowboy
And I hear they settled down somewhere out west
Well I guess it's for the best
But I can't forget her
No I can't forget her

Beautiful World Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

All the noise and the voices are screaming what they have to say
And the headlines and sound bites are giving me demons to hate
And the man on TV, he tell sme it's ugly but if you ask me it's a

Beautiful world, it's a beautiful world.

There's tears and there's fears and there's losses and crosses to bear
And sometimes the best we can do is just to whisper a prayer
Then press on because
There's so much to live for and so much to love in this

Beautiful world
Say what you will but I still believe
It's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful world

And I know I'm not dreaming
I just choose to believe it

So I hate that I sometimes miss what's right in front of my eyes
And I know at the end of my road I'll be wanting more time
Just another sunset,
One more kiss from my baby,
A smile from my friend, in this

Beautiful world
It's a beautiful world
Year, it's a beautiful world
Say what you will but I still believe
It's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful world

Little Heartwrecker Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

You can cry, cry, cry like the rain
Ocean full of tears won't drown the pain
Take all your whiskey, pour it down the drain
Ain't nothing gonna make you feel better
Ooo she's a little heartwrecker
Ooo she's a little heartwrecker

You can beg, beg, beg like a dog
Chase her ‘round the world but she'd still be gone
She did you right once but left you all wrong
Now you're chewing on a Dear John letter
Ooo she's a little heartwrecker

She takes a big black ball
And a long strong chain
And she lets it fall
Again and again and again and again and again
She's a little heartwrecker

Sing, sing, sing a sad song
Honky tonk jukebox playing along
Until your last buddy and your money is gone
But still you can't not remember

So pray, pray, pray like a saint
Promise your Maker all kinds of things
He don't answer but you know He'd say
Son you better just forget her
Ooo she's a little heartwrecker

She takes a big black ball
And a long strong chain
And she lets it fall
Again and again and again and again and again
She's a little heartwrecker

She was sweet, sweet, sweeter than wine
Never knew nothing could be so fine
So you took it all out and laid it on the line
Best you ever had only better
Ooo she's a little heartwrecker
Ooo she's a little heartwrecker
Ooo she's a little heartwrecker

You Hold Me Together Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

By now I shoulda been broken
On the rocks of rising life's ocean
Just another ship lost at sea
By now I shoulda been scattered
In the wind of my lonesome travels
Like a thousand dandelion seeds
And I shoulda come unraveled
At the seams like a well worn sweater
But you hold me together

My hope shoulda been shattered
Like a bottle out behind some tavern
From a fight that you had no chance to win
My dreams shoulda been ashes
Gone up in smoke like a book of matches
Tossed away and never gonna burn again
And I shoulda worn right through
Like an old cowboy's boot leather
But you hold me together

[Chorus]
I feel your love surrounding me
Strong enough that I can believe
There won't ever be a storm that I can't weather
Cause you hold me together
[X2]

I shoulda been long forgotten
Just a footnote down at the bottom
Of a page in the book of what coulda been's
My heart should lie in pieces
On the ground like a goodbye letter

You hold me together
[Repeat]

Better Believer Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

[Verse 1]
Life is seen more clearly through our tears
Cause we all find some faith
When we face our fears
When my life's goin like I want
God becomes an after thought
And I start trying to build my Heaven here

[Chorus]
A better believer would look to the skies
And shout "hallelujah" with tears in his eyes
Open his heart and start givin it all away
When I take a hard look at myself
And count my blessings I can't but help
But wonder if there's been some kind of mistake
This life of mine should belong to a better believer

[Verse 2]
All we really need in life is love
And in my time I've had more than enough
But some days I'm not satisfied
It happens to me all the time
I look around instead of looking up

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
With all I've got to be thankful for
I should be doing so much more
I know

[Chorus]

Pray Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Just because it didn't last
Doesn't mean that we were wrong
We both fell in love so fast
And now it's gone
And the hurt is strong

Though we don't see eye to eye
And a wind's begun to blow
I'm gonna love you till I die
And I want you to know
Till they lay me low

I'll pray
Love will bless and find you
Pray
For joy and happiness
Pray
For two strong arms around you
Pray

Was it something we can't see
Maybe something we don't know
If it wasn't meant to be
We should just say so
And let it go

I'll pray
Love will bless and find you
Pray
For joy and happiness
Pray
For two strong arms around you
Pray

That with time
You'll someday find
Peace

I'll pray
Love will bless and find you
Pray
For joy and happiness
Pray
For two strong arms around you
Pray

That with time
You'll someday find
Peace
That with time
You'll someday find
Love

Last Call Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Early in the afternoon is the only time my mind is clear
To think of you and the love we knew, it's a memory I hold so dear
Now we're apart I've got a broken heart, the tears fall so sincere
I know it's wrong but before too long, it's gonna be whiskey and beer

Last call for alcohol still ringing in my head
You must've ordered two more double shots from the shape that you're in
There ain't no stopping my bar hopping, I should've stayed home instead
Last call for alcohol still ringing in my head

You got to stop the way you're living, you better change your short life ways
Smoking, drinking and loving, you're just numbering your days
Though I know what I need to do, if I could just turn around today
But her memory catches up with me and this bar stool's where I'll stay

Last call for alcohol still ringing in my head
You must've ordered two more double shots from the shape that you're in
There ain't no stopping my bar hopping, I should've stayed home instead
Last call for alcohol still ringing in my head

Last call for alcohol still ringing in my head
You must've ordered two more double shots from the shape that you're in
There ain't no stopping my bar hopping, I should've stayed home instead
Last call for alcohol still ringing in my head

Last call for alcohol still ringing in my head

"Long Trip Alone" (2006)

Every Mile A Memory Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Country Roads, old theatre marquee signs;
Parkin' lots, and billboards flyin' by.
Spanish mosques, little hick town squares;
Wild roses on a river bank: girl its almost like you're there

Oh, every mile, a memory; every song, another scene,
From some old movie going back in time you and me.
Every day, a page turned down; every night, a lonesome sound,
Like a freight train rollin' through my dreams:
Every mile, a memory.

Red sun down, out across the western sky,
Takes me back to the fire in your eyes.
Texas stars in a purple night.
Not seein' 'em with you baby: oh, they never do it right, no.

Every mile, a memory; every song, another scene,
From some old movie going back in time you and me.
Every day, a page turned down; every night, a lonesome sound,
Like a freight train rollin' through my dreams:
Every mile, a memory.

Funny how no matter where I run,
Round every bend I only see,
Just how far I haven't come.

Every mile, a memory; every song, another scene,
From some old movie going back in time you and me.
Every day, a page turned down; every night, a lonesome sound,
Like a freight train rollin' through my dreams:
Every mile, a memory;
Every mile, a memory;
Every mile, a memory.

Can't Live It Down Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

I've been called a rambler
'Cause I keep my eyes on that horizon line
And I've been called a gambler
'Cause I always wanna let my winnings ride
I've been broke more times than I can count
I've been stuck for days in a lonely town
When my luck ran south

[Chorus:]
Hey I might be makin' me a reputation
Of goin' my own way and
I can't live it down
Got the throttle wide open gonna live it up knowin'
In this life you only
Get one go around
And I can't live it down

There's times I've wasted money
'Cause I know that I can always make more cash
But wasted time is something man
When it's gone you can't get it back
So I'll go on burnin' up both ends
'Cause I don't want a whole lot of might've-beens
Now that would be a sin

[Repeat Chorus]

Gonna live for place I ain't been
Make a lot of good remember-whens
Right up to the end

[Repeat Chorus]
I can't live it down
I can't live it down

Long Trip Alone Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

It's a long trip alone over sand and stone
That lie along the road that we all must travel down

So maybe you could walk with me a while
And maybe I could rest beneath your smile
Everybody stumbles sometimes and needs a hand to hold
'Cause it's a long trip alone

It's a short piece of time but just enough to find
A little peace of mind under the sun somewhere

So maybe you could walk with me a while
And maybe I could rest beneath your smile
You know we can't afford to let one moment pass us by
'Cause it's a short piece of time

And I don't know where I'd be without you here
'Cause I'm not really me without you there

Yea Yeah
Hallelujah hallelujah oh

So maybe you could walk with me a while
Maybe I could rest beneath your smile
Everybody stumbles sometimes and needs a hand to hold

So maybe you could walk with me a while
Maybe I could rest beneath your smile
Maybe I could feel you right beside me 'til I'm home
'Cause it's a long trip alone

That Don't Make It Easy Loving Me Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

We were playin' out in Vegas when this lady pressed her way up to the stage
I forgot what I was singin' when she met me with her meet-me-later gaze
When she threw it on my mic stand I figured they were probably double-D's
That might make for a good story man
But that don't make it easy lovin' me

One time I met one of my heroes and he made me feel real good that I was there
'Cause whatever he was smokin' man it had me spinnin' circles in my chair
I fell asleep on his bus in Texas but I woke up in Memphis, Tennessee
That might make for a good story man
But that don't make it easy lovin' me

[Chorus:]
But I got a woman
Let me tell you that she's somethin'
You won't catch me doin' nothin'
To ever make her wanna leave
She knows how much I love her man
But that don't make it easy lovin' me

When you're livin' on a bus and you fill it up with a bunch of real good timin' boys
Mix in applause and alcohol and honky tonks you know we're bound to make some noise
But this rake-and-ramblin' life helps me write the kind of songs I wanna sing
'Cause it makes for real good stories man
But that don't make it easy lovin' me

[Repeat Chorus]

Yeah she knows how much I love her man
But that don't make it easy lovin' me

Soon As You Can Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

I left that sun sinkin' west in California
I was supposed to say in LA a few more weeks
But the next time that old sun and I meet up
I'll be a thousand miles east

Fifty dollars and a gas card in my pocket
That I'm thinkin' might already be maxed out
That's just one of those little crazy things
I really didn't stop to think about

'Cause when a man wants to be with a woman
There ain't no way of gettin' there too fast
When you know who you wanna spend
The rest of your life with you wanna start
The rest of your life
As soon as you can

That state trooper let me off with just a warnin'
And a promise that I'd try to slow her down
Man that promise was forgotten
By the time I'd gotten two miles out of town

'Cause when a man wants to be with a woman
There ain't no way of gettin' there too fast
When you know who you wanna spend
The rest of your life with you wanna start
The rest of your life
As soon as you can

Don't know how much a truck can handle
But the closer that I get I keep pushin' it

'Cause when a man wants to be with a woman
There ain't no way of gettin' there too fast
When you know who you wanna spend
The rest of your life with you wanna start
The rest of your life
You can't wait to start the rest of your life
As soon as you can
As soon as you can
As soon as you can

Trying To Stop You Leaving Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Got a guitar
Got a guitar on my back
And I'm standin' on this lonesome railroad track
Train's a comin'
It'll be here 'fore too long
But I don't think I can stop it with a song
Girl that's the kind of way I'm feelin'
Tryin' to stop your leavin'

Got a pebble
Got a pebble in my hand
And I toss it out into the middle of the Rio Grande
But the river keeps runnin'
Don't even know that I'm around
I could throw a million more and not slow it down
Girl that's kind of what I'm feelin'
Tryin' to stop your leavin'

There's nothin' that I wouldn't try
If I thought it would change your mind

But you don't love me
No you don't love me anymore
And I know as soon as you walk out that door
Train's a comin', river's runnin'
Train's a comin', river's runnin'
Pain's a comin', tears are runnin'
Yeah that's kind of the way I'm feelin'
Knowin' I couldn't stop your leavin'

Hope For Me Yet Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Girl I've made a name everybody writes off
An open-road hard case a honky tonk lost cause
The fate I'm lookin' at there ain't know way around
A long and lonely path I'm destined to go down

[Chorus:]
Yeah there ain't much of nothin' in me
Left to be saved but baby I bet
If you could love somebody like me
There might be hope for me yet

Hope for me yet

Always livin' fast and only thinkin' short term
I never could get past a bridge I didn't burn
I'm just a worn out pair of boots and a beat-up old guitar
A handful of country tunes and a hard-luck kind of heart

[Repeat Chorus]

Girl you just might be that outside chance for me
Yeah you're the one good shot at redemption that I've got

Yeah there ain't much of nothin' in me

Left to be saved but baby I bet
If you could love somebody like me
There might be...

[Repeat Chorus]
Hope for me yet
There's hope for me yet

The Heaven I'm Headed To Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

I hear people talk of heaven
And how it's only for the precious few
But in the book that I've been readin'
Sounds to me like there's a lot of room
So I bet some folks are gonna be surprised
About who makes it to the other side 'cause in the

[Chorus:]
Heave I'm headed to
There's a place for preachers, thieves and prostitutes
Saints and soldiers, beggars, kings and renegades
For any soul that ever found amazing grace
Ain't no tellin' who on earth He might include
In the heaven I'm headed to

It's not my place to say
Just who does or doesn't get to go
I'm only one among the many
Stumblin' down that narrow road
There's so many things in this life to love
And I believe there's hope for each of us 'cause

[Repeat Chorus]

And the only thing I know
We all get the chance to go

Saints and soldiers, beggers, kings and renegades
Any soul that ever found amazing grace
Ain't no tellin' who on earth He might include
In the heave I'm headed to
The heaven I'm headed to
The heaven I'm headed to

Free And Easy Down The Road I Go Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Pair of boots and a sack of clothes
Free and easy down the road I go
Hangin' memories on the high line poles
Free and easy down the road I go
Free and easy down the road I go

Ragweed's rockin' on the radio
Free and easy down the road I go
So I keep rollin' like an old banjo
Free and easy down the road I go

Got the sun shinin' on me like a big spotlight
So I know everything is gonna be alright

Ain't no tellin' where the wind might blow
Free and easy down the road I go
Livin' life like a Sunday stroll
Free and easy down the road I go
Free and easy down the road I go

If you only get to go around one time
I'm gonna sit back and try to enjoy the ride

I could make a million or wind up broke
Free and easy down the road I go
Can't take it with you when you go so
Free and easy down the road I go
Someday I know it's gonna take me home so
Free and easy down the road I go
Free and easy down the road I go

Band Of Brothers Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

I came up through the trenches where
we only played for tips and alcohol
You find out what you're made of when there
ain't no gold or platinum on the wall
And there's a few more like me who
ain't of fightin' for the cause

[Chorus:]
Me and my band of brothers we got you covered
Out here on the honky tonk front lines
We're loaded up with country music we ain't afraid to use it
Even if we have to play all night
Well we ain't no rookies it's our third tour of duty but that's all right
yeah that's all right
Me and my band of brothers got you covered
On the honky tonk front lines

From the bars of San Diego to the
county dair way up in Bangor Maine
We keep the tour bus rollin' just like it was
a big old Sherman tank
Like those who came before us
Owens, Haggard, Willie, Waylon, Jones and Hank
(and Johnny Cash)

[Repeat Chorus]

Well we ain't no rookies it's our third tour of duty
but that's all right yeah that's all right
Me and my band of brothers got you covered
On the honky tonk front lines

Me and my band of brothers got you covered
On the honky tonk front lines

Prodigal Son's Prayer Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Father meet me with your arms wide open
The world's done broken your prodigal son
Down the road I traveled
Everything raveled only came undone

Father lead me down to the river
Wash me in the water 'til I'm whiter than snow
I know I'm not worthy
But tell me there's mercy for the wanderin' soul

I lost my way but now I'm on my knees
If it's not too late won't you tell me please
You gotta place for me
A little grace for me

Father meet me in the cool green valley
In all of your glory when my days are done
Name me as one of your chosen
Heaven's unbroken prodigal son

Father meet me with your arms wide open
Lead me down to the river
Meet me in the cool green valley

Name me one of your chosen
Heaven's unbroken prodigal son

"Modern Day Drifter" (2005)

Lot Of Leavin' Left To Do Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

These old boots still got a lot of ground
They ain't covered yet
There's at least another million miles
Under these old bus treads
So if you think I'm gonnna settle down
I've got news for you
I still got a lot of leavin' left to do

And as long as there's a song
Left in this old guitar
This life I'm bound to lead
Ain't for the faint of heart
So you won't fall for me
If you know what's good for you
'Cause I still got a lot of leavin' left to do

I guess the Lord made me hard to handle
So lovin' me might be a long shot gamble
So before you go and turn me on
Be sure that you can turn me loose
'Cause I still got a lot of leavin' left to do

Girl, you look like you might be an angel
So I won't lie
I could love you like the devil
If you wanted me to tonight
And we could talk about forever for a day or two
But I still got a lot of leavin' left to do

I guess the Lord made me hard to handle
So lovin' me might be a long shot gamble
So before you go and turn me on
Be sure that you can turn me loose
'Cause I still got a lot of leavin' left to do

Yeah, I still got a leavin' left to do

Come A Little Closer Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Come a little closer, baby
I feel like layin' you down
On a bed sweet surrender
Where we can work it all out
There ain't nothin' that love can't fix
Girl, it's right here at our fingertips
So come a little closer baby,
I feel like layin' you down

Come a little closer, baby
I feel like lettin' go
Of everything that stands between us
And the love we used to know
I wanna touch you like a cleansing rain
Let it wash all the hurt away
So come a little closer baby
I feel like lettin' go

If there's still a chance
Then take my hand
And we'll steal away
Off into the night
'till we make things right
The suns gonna rise on a better day

Come a little closer baby
I feel like strippin' it down
Back to the basics of you and me
And what makes the world go round
Every inch of you against my skin
I wanna be stronger than we've ever been
So come a little closer baby
I feel like strippin' it down

Come a little bit closer baby
Just a little bit closer baby
Come a little bit closer baby
I feel like layin' you down

Cab Of My Truck Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Cracked windshield
That I super-glued
Crumpled up cans and a beat up bag of red man chew
Fix a flat, jonny cash box set
Half a dozen parking tickets that I ain't paid yet
It's sitten on that cloth bench seat
I got my shot gun girl right next to me

[CHORUS:]
Four wheel turnin
Two hearts burnin
We go runnin wild
Gonna make a million
Memories for every hundred
Thousand miles
Learnin everything I'll ever need
To know about life and love
In the cab of my truck

Sliden rear
Back window
So it's an easy reach to where my cooler keeps em iced down cold
Roll of duck tape, W D 40
Ain't nothin too loose or locked too tight for a man like me
Yeah, I might take it slow
30 through town
But on a back dirt road
Girl I put the hammer down

[CHORUS]

Down by the river, two bodies in the glow of the radio dial
Gonna make a million memories for every hundred thousand miles
I'm learnin everything I'll ever need to know about life and love
In the cab of my truck
In the cab of my truck

Man I can't find anything in this truck
Oh, what's this? a little white tank top
Get out of my way Cadilac, big white's comin through

Settle For A Slowdown Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

I must look just like a fool here
in the middle of the road
standing there in your rearview
and getting soaked to the bone
this land is flat as it is mean
a man can see for a hundred miles
So I'm still praying I might see
the glow of a brake light.

But your wheels just turn,
down the road ahead
If it hurts at all
you aint showed it yet
I keep a lookin' for
the slightest sign that you might miss
what you left behind
I know there's nothing stopping you now
but I'd settle for a slowdown.

I held on longer then I should
Believing you might change your mind
And those bright lights of Hollywood
would fade in time.

But your wheels just turn
down the road ahead
If it hurts at all
you aint showed it yet
I keep a lookin' for
the slightest sign
that you might miss
what you left behind
I know there's nothing stopping you now
but I'd settle for a slowdown.

But your wheels just turn
down the road ahead
if it hurts at all
you aint showed it yet
your just a tiny dot on that horizon line come on tap those brakes
baby just one time
I know there's nothing stopping you now
Im not asking you to turn back around

I'd settle for a slowdown
come on just slow down
I'd settle for a slow down.

Domestic, Light And Cold Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Hey bartender, can I make one special request?
My woman left me, so tonight I'll be drinkin' your best.
I'm not talkin' about Single Malt, Scotch, Jagermeister, or Cuervo Gold.
I'll take anything domestic, light, and cold.

Domestic, light, and cold, that's what I'm havin'.
Serve me up any old, iced-down American classic.
Pop a top, crack a can, just don't make me wait too long.
I'll take, anything domestic, light, and cold.

No, I wasn't cheatin'. She just said that I was hard to please.
And I'll admit it: I can be set in my country ways.
So go ahead and break out the good stuff, if I can be so bold.
I'll take anything domestic, light, and cold.

Domestic, light, and cold, that's what I'm havin'.
Serve me up any old, iced-down American classic.
Pop a top, crack a can, just don't make me wait too long.
I'll take, anything domestic, light, and cold.

You've got beer from all over the world on the wall.
I can even get a free t-shirt, if I try them all.
But tonight I'm in the mood for some of that home-grown brew!

Yeah, pop a top, crack a can, just don't make me wait too long.
I'll take, anything domestic, hey I know what the best is.
Anything domestic, light, and cold!

Good Things Happen Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

The world is cold but I don't care
When you have flowers in you hair
I see color and I hear sound
And good things happen when you're around

I work hard for not much pay
So I can know you'll be okay
'Cause I need to live where love abounds
And good things happen when you're around

So won't you wait for me
I'll be home soon
Wait for me
I'll only be a day or two

Won't you wait for me
I'll be home soon
Wait for me
I'll only be a day or two

The world is cold but I don't care
When you have flowers in your hair
I see color and I hear sound
And good things happen when you're around
Good things happen when you're around

Down On Easy Street Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Guess you heard I'm doin' well
Struck it rich, to hear some folks tell
But I'm still the same old me
Down on Easy Street

You give your all to find that road
And you lose touch with some people as you go
Promises are hard to keep
Down on Easy Street

But when I lay down, and you're not there
Girl, I wish I was anywhere, but

[Chorus:]
In this world where the telephone is all I touch
When I'm alone and no one ever really knows
The man inside of me
Up here in this lonely room just a-sippin' wine
And a-missin' you girl I've got everything
But what I need
That's why I'm down
Down on Easy Street

Someone told me you moved on
Well who could blame you, with me so off and gone
But do you ever think of me
Down on Easy Street

If you're out this way, some week, some year
Girl, you'll still find me waitin' here

[Repeat Chorus Twice]

Down on Easy Street
Down on Easy Street

Guess you heard I'm doin' well

So So Long Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Girl I caught you in your little white lie
Red handed, red handed
You said you had to work tonight
But here you are dancin', slow dancin'
In this honky tonk with someone else
And all you got to say for yourself is so...so?
I'm sorry, so?

[Chorus:]
So, So long, bye bye baby
I'll catch you on the flip side maybe, don't you
Slip slide on a tear when you find me gone
Go go on, cry crybaby
Those tears are gonna drip dry maybe
But you're gonna miss my good love baby
For so so long
So so long

Let me buy you a goodbye drink
Make it a double, a double
'Cause I've seen everything I need to see
You're nothin' but trouble, big trouble
And one other thing before I go
I wanna tell you that I think you're so..so..so..aw, I ain't gonna sink that low

[Repeat Chorus]

I bet you think I'm gonna let it slide
The way you're flashin' me those puppy dog eyes
Right?..yeah right...right?...wrong

[Repeat Chorus]
So so long
So so long

Modern Day Drifter Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

I'm gonna be a modern day drifter
And get out while I can
Gonna trade in this life I've been livin
For a pocket full of sand
And a modern day drifter don't have to tell no one his plans

I'm gonna find that long stretch of highway
No one knows my name
Where as long as the sky just goes on
And it's never the same
A modern day drifter don't ever complain

Bye bye hi life
Feels like the right time
To say so long
Keep on goin strong
And I'll just keep on bein gone
Cause I'm gonna be a modern day drifter, Yes I am
Gonna slip this ring off my finger
Cause everybody understands
That a modern day drifter's got nothin but time on his hands

Bye bye hi life
Feels like the right time
To say so long
Keep on goin strong
And I'll just keep on bein gone
Cuse I'm gonna be a modern day drifter
Oh yes I am
Gonna slip this ring off my finger
Cause everybody understands
That a modern day drifter's got nothin ut time on his hands

Good Man Like Me Lyrics – Dierks Bentley (feat. The Del McCoury Band)

Now that old car, it ain't gonna last
You ride around all day, I buy the gas
The more I work, the more you spend
Tell me honey baby when will this all end

[Chorus:]
Her bags are packed, my nerves are racked
She's got a one-way ticket, ain't comin' back
Oh baby, baby
Where you gonna find a good man like me

Take a look at this house turned upside-down
I hung the clothes on the line, they blowed down to the ground
I try to eat my own cookin' but its awful bland
I'm tellin' you right now things are out of hand

[Chorus 2x]
Where you gonna find a good man like me

Gonna Get There Someday Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Well its been a year and there so much to tell
been doing alright in spite of myself
just wish I could stop feeling bad when I pray
But I know I'm gonna get there someday

Got that job I was dreaming about
sometimes its tough traveling around
but who I wanna be still seems so far away
but I know I'm gonna get there someday

glad I told you all I meant to
while I had the chance
cause every moment I had with you
made me who I am

by the way, I met someone new
and wouldn't you know, she's a whole lot like you
still I ain't ready to settle down in one place
but I know I'm gonna get there someday

well I guess I'll be movin on
I'll just leave these daisies by your stone
and momma, I still miss you every day
but I know I'm gonna get there someday

when that'll be, guess only God can say
but I know I'm gonna get there someday

"Dierks Bentley" (2003)

What Was I Thinkin' Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Becky was a beauty from south Alabama
Her daddy had a heart like a nine-pound hammer
Think he even did a little time in the slammer
What was I thinkin'?

She snuck out one night and met me by the front gate
Her daddy came out wavin' that twelve gauge
We tore out the drive he peppered my tailgate
What was I thinkin'?

Oh, I knew there'd be hell to pay
But that crossed my mind a little too late...
'cause I was...

[chorus:]
Thinkin' 'bout a little white tank top sittin' right
There in the middle by me
I was thinkin' 'bout a long kiss man just gotta get
Goin' where a night might lead
I know what I was feelin'
But what was I thinkin'... what was I thinkin'

By the county line the cops were nippin' on our heels
Pulled off the road and kicked it in four-wheel
Shut off the lights and tore through the corn field
What was I thinkin'?

Out the other side she was hollerin' faster
Took a dirt road and had the radio blastin'
Hit the honky tonk for a little close dancin'
What was I thinkin'?

Oh, I knew there'd be hell to pay
But that crossed my mind a little too late...
'cause I was...

[repeat chorus]

When a mountain of a man with a "born to kill" tattoo
Tried to cut in I knocked out his front tooth
We ran outside hood-slidin' like bo duke
What was I thinkin'?

I finally got her home at a half past too late
Her daddy's in a lawn chair sittin' on the driveway
Put it in park as he started my way
What was I thinkin', oh what was I thinkin'

Then she gave a come-and-get-me grin
And like a bullet we were gone again... 'cause I was

[repeat chorus]

Wish It Would Break Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

That old picture frame keeps hangin' 'round
Cause' I ain't ready yet to take it down
But every now and then I'll slam the door
Shake it loose and she'll hit the floor
But I can't throw a good thing away
I wish it would break
I swear my trucks got a haunted radio
Cause' I hear you in every song
But I know what the silence makes
Me do
So I keep givin' those buttons more abuse
I wonder how much punchin' it can take
I wish it would break
[chorus]
Then I could move on right on
Down the line
Where I don't see you need you
In my life
But you're wrapped around me
Your memory's bound me like a chain
I wish it would break
And this old heart of mine's got a mind of its own
And it's decided not to let you go
Even though your love's no longer here
It won't let me shed one tear
Cause' it's still holdin' onto yesterday
I wish it would break
[chorus]
I wish it would break
I wish it would break
Go on and break

Forget About You Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

I'm gonna build a fire in the middle of July
Burn your pictures and go for a drive
Down to the river watch the ink from your love letters fade
Come back home and turn that old mattress over
Pour out the whiskey try wakin' up sober
Gonna change it all tonight, gonna do whatever it takes

Yeah, cause I've lost weight and I've lost hair
And I don't intend to ever go back there
Drinkin and a-thinkin' 'bout a love that just wasn't true
There's a good chance I'll end up insane
Without enough sense to come in from the rain
My mind might be the last thing you make me loose
But I'll forget about you

I heard that old Jones song just the other day
'bout a man who took a broken heart to his grave
But I'll be damned if a memory's gonna lay me down
I might be walkin' around with a head full of air
Actin' kinda crazy but I don't care
A heart barely beatin' but I'll still be above the ground

Yeah, cause I've lost weight and I've lost hair
And I don't intend to ever go back there
Drinkin and a-thinkin' 'bout a love that just wasn't true
There's a good chance I'll end up insane
Without enough sense to come in from the rain
My mind might be the last thing you make me loose
But I'll forget about you

Cause I've lost sleep and I've lost years
And there aint no tellin' how many tears
My mind's gonna be the last thing you make me loose
But I'll forget about, I'll forget about you
I'll forget about you

My Last Name Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

I learned how to write it when I first started school,
Some bully didn't like it, he said it didn't sound to cool,
So I had to hit him and all I said when the blood came,
It's my last name

Grandpa took of to europe to fight the germans in the war,
It came back on some dogtags nobody wears no more,
It's written on a headstone in the field where he was slain,
It's my last name

Passed down from generations too far back to trace,
I can see all my relations when I look into my face,
May never make it famous but I'll never bring it shame,
It's my last name

Daddy always told me far back as I recall,
Son, your part of somethin', you represent us all,
So keep it how you got it , as solid as it came,
It's my last name

Passed down from generations too far back to trace,
I can see all my relations when I look into my face,
May never make it famous but I'll never bring it shame,
It's my last name

So darlin' if you're wonderin' why I've got you here tonight,
I wanna be your husband, I want you to be my wife,
I ain't got much to give you but what I've got means everything,
It's my last name, oh, it's my last name

I learned how to write it when I first started school

Bartenders, Etc... Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Bartenders, Barstools and Barmaids
A jukebox and a pocket full of change
Just a few of my favorite things
Bartenders, Barstools and Barmaids

Bartenders listen when you talk
And barstools are there when you can't walk
And I'll always make a waitress my best
Until the music stops and closin' time begins

Bartenders, Barstools and Barmaids
A jukebox and a pocket full of change
Just a few of my favorite things
Bartenders, Barstools and Barmaids

Outside lies a heart that's been broke
And in here it's a world of song and smoke
That way my eyes and ears can lie to me
While I drink another shot of make believe

Bartenders, Barstools and Barmaids
A jukebox and a pocket full of change
Just a few of my favorite things
Bartenders, Barstools and Barmaids

Bartenders, barstools and barmaids

I Can Only Think Of One Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Pullin' into the fast lane on the leavin' side of town
Just me and the dreams I've left undone
There's a whole lot of roads I can point this chevy down
But I can only think of one

On this river of concrete slab a man could drive for days
And let his imagination run
There's time for a million memories along the way
But I can only think of one, oh, I can only think of one

Summer down in gavelston, underneath the stars
A fire burin' on the sand, ragin' in our hearts
If there's a time in my whole life I've really been in love
I can only, I can only, I can only think of one

I'm not gonna back 'til I'm back to where you are
To undo the damage that's been done
There may be a hundred ways to mend this broken heart
But I can only think of one, oh, I can only think of one

Summer down in gavelston, underneath the stars
A fire burin' on the sand, and you back in my arms
If there's a time in my whole life I've really been in love
I can only, I can only, I can only think of one

Is Anybody Loving You These Days Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Midnight stoplight, happens everytime
Pretty girl in a car
No resemblance whatsoever
I wonder how you are
Constant question poundin' inmy brain
Is anybody lovin' you these days
Lonesome pillow sun comes yellow
I reach across the bed
Should be hurried workin' worries
I lie there instead
With the thought that's drivin' me insane
Is anybody lovin' you these days

[Chorus:]
Damn this small town every place that I go
I drive by your house, I see his car and I know
He's there with you, but when he kisses you
Think about the memories we made, and tell me
Is anybody lovin' you these days

Second chances, backward glances
Most people just say no
World keeps turnin', heart keeps yearnin'
I keep holdin' the hope
One day you might answer with my name
Is anybody lovin' you these days

My Love Will Follow You Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Take your suitcase and take your heart
Take a train to the boulevard
My love will follow you, my love will follow you
You can try to lose yourself downtown
You can burn all your bridges down
My love will follow you, yeah my love will follow you

[chorus]
My love will follow you
Down every highway of your soul
You can leave me far behind
But my love will be your shadow
Everywhere you go

So close the door, turn in the key
Leave me here like a memory
My love will follow you, my love will follow you
Even on a road that takes you down where
Cords of human kindness come unwound
My love will follow you, yeah my love will follow you

[chorus]

If you should go so far, that you cannot get back
Girl, you may not remember, but my heart will not lose track

So go ahead and take that train
In my heart you'll still remain
My love will follow you, my love will follow you
My love will follow you
Oh, follow you
My love will follow you

How Am I Doin' Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

It's strange to hear your voice
I did not expect for you to call
You wonder how I'm doin
How I'm holdin up
Since you did me wrong

[chorus]
Well how am I doin' since you did what you done to me?
I can't lie I sometimes cry when I think of how it used to be
I keep my friends with me, I stay busy and I don't get much sleep
Baby, that's how I'm doin since you did what you done to me

Well now wait one minute, I
Failed to mention
Those tears I cried, are tears of joy
Cause' it was no fun there
Under your thumb and
Now that we're done I'm
Gettin' right every night
With every single ever-lovin' girl in sight, so

[chorus]

Well when all my friends heard what a
You know what you were they
Took me out on the town
But then I heard our song and
I dance along but
It felt all wrong cause'
She was sweet, she let me lead
She never took her ever-lovin' eyes off me so

[chorus]

Well I don't know what you were thinkin'
Runnin' round on me
Now you say you're sorry
Well honey I agree...so

How are you doin' since you did
What you done to me
Girl don't lie you know you cry
Cause' you know how good it used to be
Yeah, tell me does the thought of
Losin' my true love make it hard to sleep, baby
How are you doin' since you did
What you done to me

Yeah how are you doin', now that you know
How I'm doin since you did
What you done to me

Distant Shore Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Everyday I swim an ocean, fightin your memory like endless waves
I surrender to the truth, I'll always love you, but I know someday
I'm gonna reach the banks of a distant shore, where I won't miss you anymore

Once in a while I ride the river, of whiskey wishes from an old shot glass
But the way it used to be follows me downstream, so I keep knockin em back
Till I reahc the banks of a distant shore, where I won't miss you anymore

Someday I'm gonna get there, It migfht take my last prayer

One of these days I'm gonna cross that ocean,some sweet angel will set me free
And they'll tell my stories, sing a song about glory, and read Psalm 23
When I reach the banks of that distant shore, where I won't miss you anymore

Gonna rest my soul in the hands of the lord, where I won't miss you anymore

I Bought The Shoes Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

Designer names and diamond rings
Are just some of the finer things
I thought it took to keep her saticfied
But a bank account and credit cards
A circle drive through an acre yard
Couldn't fill that lonesome feelin'
That she had inside

I bought her fancy clothes for all occasions
And that new car so she could go
Just any old where she pleased
I bought that golden band she wore
On the hand that closed the door
And I bought the shoes that just walked out on me

Leavin' early and stayin' out late
I thought for sure her love would wait
Until the day that I could find the time
But all the that she expected
Were all the things that I neglected
For what she wanted most from me
Would not have cost a dime

I bought her fancy clothes for all occasions
And that new car so she could go
Just any old where she pleased
I bought that golden band she wore
On the hand that closed the door
And I bought the shoes that just walked out on me

I bought the golden band she wore
On the hand that closed the door
And I bought the shoes that just walked out on me
Yes, I bought the shoes that just walked out on me

Whiskey Tears Lyrics – Dierks Bentley

There's things in my life that I've been missin'
The touch of a woman, and lovin' after dark
Come here lately with the woman I've been kissin'
She comes from Kentucky boys, and she don't have a heart

Bartender, he don't mind, he sets 'em up the same
I ain't been sober since it's over, got no plans to change
I traded my tomorrows to remain in yesterday
Whiskey tears are fallin' here and each one cries her name

I used to be so afraid of dyin'
I lived every moment for lovin' her
But when she walked away my heart quit tryin'
And now im no stranger to hurt

Bartender, he don't mind, he sets 'em up the same
I ain't been sober since it's over, got no plans to change
I traded my tomorrows to remain in yesterday
Whiskey tears are fallin' here and each one cries her name

Bartender, he don't mind he sets 'em up the same
Whiskey tears are fallin' here and each one cries her name

Train Travelin lyrics - dierks bentley (feat. The Del McCoury Band)

Everytime I hear that whistle whine
From a lonesome locomotive comin' down the line
It carries my mind away to another place in time
When train travelin' across the land was the only way to fly

Am I a fool to think it glamorous
Box-carrin' like a hobo, it must have been rough
But a simpler way of life is what it really means to me
When we weren't so dependent on money to bee free

I hear you train, are you travelin' my way
Won't you let me ride your rails right back to yesterday
Who knows what I could see from that old time machine
But there you go again train travelin'
There you go again train travelin'

I'm lyin' on a rotten wooden floor
Smell yesterday's whiskey here rattlin' at the door
Railroad man lookin' for me I'm scared as I can be
I open my eyes and realize its just another dream

I hear you train, are you travelin' my way
Won't you let me ride your rails right back to yesterday
Who knows what I could see from that old time machine
But there you go again train travelin'
There you go again train travelin'

There you go again train travelin'
