JASON ALDEAN lyrics - Old Boots, New Dirt

I Took It With Me

Original and similar lyrics
When I passed that city limits sign I knew that I was finally on my own So I put my foot down on the gas To see how fast those wheels could get me gone Everything about that place made me who I am They say once you leave You can't go back again So I took it with me That cloud of red dust rollin' up That Georgia blue sky settin' sun Straight up Highway 41 I took it with me That wild streak That fightin' side That born to run on Friday night That standing tall small town pride I took it with me Well they say this world can change you fast Kick you right on back where you belong So I roll my sleeves up everyday And that's just what you do where I come from Everything I ever knew I bottled up inside When I need a shot of back home It ain't hard to find So I took it with me That cloud of red dust rollin' up That Georgia blue sky settin' sun Straight up Highway 41 I took it with me That wild streak That fightin' side That born to run on Friday night That standing tall small town pride I took it with me I might be a thousand miles away But it's still crystal clear I see that picture in my mind And I keep it right here 'Cause I took it with me That cloud of red dust rollin' up That Georgia blue sky settin' sun Straight up Highway 41 I took it with me That wild streak That fightin' side That born to run on Friday night That standing tall small town pride I took it with me Yeah, yeah I took it with me Ohhhh, I took it with me

The Other Side

BRENDAN JAMES "The Day Is Brave"
I was a child once The fear of the world in my eyes Far from the safety of the other side I colored by numbers Learned how to tie my own shoes Like all the others I was just Prayed I'd make it through Prayed I would make it through Oh mother look how your boy turned out Three hundred miles from that small town You never stopped believing Oh daddy, it hurt to watch you walking out But understand it made me stronger now And so satisfied, so full of pride Thank you here from, from the other side I'll always remember The kids and how'd mean they'd been Eleven years old and I could, could not fit in But I made it through high school And college according to plan The pressure was never greater to become a man Would I become a man? Oh mother look how your boy turned out Three hundred miles from that small town You never stopped believing Oh daddy, it hurt to watch you walking out But understand it made me stronger now And so satisfied, so full of pride Thank you here from, from the other side Thank you here from, from the other side Mother look how your boy turned out Three hundred miles from that small town Dad it hurt to watch you walking out Hear the piano do the crying no For all the preachers and the teachers, now For all the ones who never let me down I'm so satisfied, so full of pride Standing here on, on the other side Thank you here from, from the other side Thank you here from, from the other side Here on, on the other side I'm taking my time There's nothing to fear There's nothing to worry about On the other side I remember when I thought I'd never find The other side

Silver River Turning

JETHRO TULL "Nightcap"
I walked down that boulder road, Through a child's eye saw places where I used to go. Where I crawled barefoot with a fishing pole to the rock that overlooked that steelhead hole but it's true--silver river turning blue. It was a small town in a smaller world. Just a black dot on an old map with its edges curled. Where they built their industries on the edge of town-- Leaching chemicals from underground now it's true--that silver river turning blue. Just got a late reaction. Face reality and stare it down. Sometimes it's harder hanging on. Much easier to look around. But I need that job. Well, this place no city: we're just small players here. Like a million other heroes drinking poor man's beer. We know what's right. We're just living it wrong. But there's no easy answer in the green man's song. What do you do When your river's turning Blue.

Primrose Hill

MADNESS "The Rise And Fall"
(Thompson/Barson) I wear my cap with pride When swaying side to side Indoors where it be crude Too late to find me shrewd. I never lay in doubt When walking from about At home where it be warm You're sound asleep unborn! I'm a small chap Walk tall chap When it rains Cats and dogs From my pocket I pick a pac-a-mac. Inside a rubber wall yelling Screams echo, off the ceiling. My love could penetrate So I'll leave you now prostrate. My fag smoulders out and out And odours waft there about So I give my head a kip My cap's worn to a split. I'm a small chap Walk tall chap When it rains Cats and dogs From my pocket I pick a pac-a-mac. I wear my cap with pride When swaying side to side Indoors where I feel nude Too late to find me shrewd. I never lay in doubt When walking from about At home where it be warm You're sound asleep unborn! I'm a small chap Walk tall chap When it rains Cats and dogs From my pocket I pick a pac-a-mac.

Pac A Mac

MADNESS "Seven"
(Thompson/Barson) I wear my cap with pride When swaying side to side Indoors where it be crude Too late to find me shrewd. I never lay in doubt When walking from about At home where it be warm You're sound asleep unborn! I'm a small chap Walk tall chap When it rains Cats and dogs From my pocket I pick a pac-a-mac. Inside a rubber wall yelling Screams echo, off the ceiling. My love could penetrate So I'll leave you now prostrate. My fag smoulders out and out And odours waft there about So I give my head a kip My cap's worn to a split. I'm a small chap Walk tall chap When it rains Cats and dogs From my pocket I pick a pac-a-mac. I wear my cap with pride When swaying side to side Indoors where I feel nude Too late to find me shrewd. I never lay in doubt When walking from about At home where it be warm You're sound asleep unborn! I'm a small chap Walk tall chap When it rains Cats and dogs From my pocket I pick a pac-a-mac.

Arrested For Driving While Blind

ZZ TOP "Tejas"
When you're driving down the highway at night And you're feelin' that wild turkey's bite Don't give Johnny Walker a ride Cause Jack Black is right by your side You might get taken to the jailhouse and find You've been arrested for driving while blind Now just the other night with nothin' to do We broke a case of proof 102 And started itchin' for that wonderful feel Of rollin' in an automobile You could say we was out of our mind And let me tell you we were flyin' while blind Then they had us up against the wall Hey it's only blood grain alcohol And there ain't no cause for alarm We ain't out to do nobody no harm How could anyone be so unkind To arrest a man for drivin' while blind
