Let You Go lyrics - Casey Donahew

Sometimes I'm lonely
and sometimes I'm lost
Sometimes I let you down
No matter how much it costs

Sometimes I'm reckless
and I never think twice
Sometimes I fall apart
You're always paying the price

Now I'm lonely and I don't care
'Cause I'm the one who let you down
But if you give me half a chance
I'll do everything I can to let you know
I never meant to let you go

Sometimes I wonder
why the world has to turn
Sometimes I break down
There's a lesson I should learn

Sometimes I'm without
When this life takes it's toll
How can I give you back
all the things that I've stole

Now I'm lonely and I don't care
'Cause I'm the one who let you down
But if you give me half a chance
I'll do everything I can to let you know
I never meant to let you go

I'm not sure if you can hear me
So I keep screamin' out your name

Now I'm lonely and I don't care
'Cause I'm the one who let you down
But if you give me half a chance
I'll do everything I can
Everything I can...

Because I'm lonely and I don't care
Now I'm the one who let you down
But if you give me half a chance
I'll do everything I can to let you know
I never meant to let you go

I never meant to let you go...

Double-Wide Dream lyrics - Casey Donahew

Well, I'm spoken for
I got a ball and chain
I even gave her my last name
She's my anchor, she takes the wind out of my sails
Can't move our trailer 'cause she sewed the wheels
She's my plus one, you can do the math
Top to bottom there's no better half

And I love that pretty little country girl
She's rockin' this redneck's world
She's the welcome mat to my home sweet home
She takes me as I am & loves me like she wants to
Twists my heart up just like a corkscrew
And makes me smile, as I make her scream
Just a couple of kids livin' the double-wide dream

She likes to cuss & fight & she can drink all night
And she can roll one up till I'm feelin' right
She drives a truck with swampers and rims
And an Alpine pumping through Kicker tens
She dips snuff & she don't spit
Never on the broad her shirts don't fit

And I love that pretty little country girl
She's rockin' this redneck's world
She's the welcome mat to my home sweet home
She takes me as I am & loves me like she wants to
Twists my heart up just like a corkscrew
And makes me smile, as I make her scream
Just a couple of kids livin' the double-wide dream

Guns & dirt roads, cowboy boots & old blue jeans
And she ain't no uptown hussy
She's my down home trailer queen

Well, I love that pretty little country girl
She's what's rockin' this redneck's world
She's the welcome mat to my home sweet home

And I love that pretty little country girl
She's rockin' this redneck's world
She's the welcome mat to my home sweet home
She takes me as I am & loves me like she wants to
Twists my heart up just like a corkscrew
And makes me smile, as I make her scream
Just a couple of kids livin' the double-wide dream

The double-wide dream!
We got double-wide dreams!

Give You A Ring lyrics - Casey Donahew band

A moonlit night
There's no need for headlights
This beat up truck'll damn near drive itself
You tried hard not to show it
and we both know where it's goin'
If I can't find the words for how I feel

I'll give you a ring
So your eyes can't tell me no
So your reaction won't bring out my insecurity
I'm gonna give you a ring
and tell you how I feel
It might make more sense on a telephone line
than right here in front of you
I'll give you a ring

It's been 5 years since you left
and we both got our regrets
but it made me smile to hear you're back in town
Let's look past our mistakes
There's a chance we've got to take
Now let those walls
around our hearts come crumblin' to the ground

I'll give you a ring
So your eyes can't tell me no
So your reaction won't bring out my insecurity
I'm gonna give you a ring
and tell you how I feel
It might make more sense on a telephone line
than right here in front of you
I'll give you a ring

You're still with me
All those memories
are from our first kiss to me down here on my knees

So I can give you this ring
I pray your eyes don't tell me no
Hope your reaction won't bring out my insecurity
I'm gonna give you a ring
To show you how I feel
Always and forever's what I mean
I'll give you a ring

Running Through My Head lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

Alone again tonight
This bottle by my bed and I think
damn my heart and damn my head
I'm dreamin' of a girl that never dreams of me
and it's not fair, she won't let me be

And if I find redemption at the end of the line
I'll remember better days and a time when she was mine

And I'd scream
Hold on, hold on just one more day
Let go, let go and walk away
You're gonna die lonely is what she said
But I don't feel lonely
with you runnin' through my head

She's never comin' back
There's no reason that she would
She probably wouldn't try, even if she could
I haven't slept in days and I haven't seen the sun
and I think damn my luck, that I just can't outrun

But if I find redemption at the end of the line
Twisted in the wind just like I'm runnin' out of time

And I'd scream
Hold on, hold on just one more day
Let go, let go and walk away
You're gonna die lonely is what she said
But I don't feel lonely
with you runnin' through my head

And if I find redemption at the end of the line
I'll remember better days and a time when she was mine

And I'd scream
Hold on, hold on just one more day
Let go, let go and walk away
You're gonna die lonely is what she said
But I don't feel lonely

No, I don't feel lonely
But I don't feel lonely
with you runnin' through my head

Alone again tonight
This bottle by my bed
and I think, damn my heart...

Regrets lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

I keep staring down this highway
And you'd still be here if I had it my way
But pages of our fairy tale are torn
But I've got my pride to keep me warm

And now this room feels like a tomb
on the dark side of the moon
And I know you're in his arms again
I should have begged you to stay
And never let you walk away
I should've told you that my hearts always been yours

So let these empty memories burn
Because you have not returned
And you know regrets
they are the hardest lessons learned

I often wonder if I ever cross your mind
Now I know you're gone
But my heart still thinks that there's time
And there's no life left in this place we called a home
The hardest part of waking up is knowing I'm alone

And now this room feels like a tomb
on the dark side of the moon
And I know you're in his arms again
I should have begged you to stay
And never let you walk away
I should've told you that my hearts always been yours

So let these empty memories burn
Because you have not returned
And you know regrets
they are the hardest lessons learned

But I'll be waiting if you need me
Because my heart can't say goodbye, yeah!

Now this room feels like a tomb
on the dark side of the moon
And I know you're in his arms again
I wish I would've begged you to stay
But I just let you walk away
You know you'll always have my heart

You know you'll always have my heart!

So let these empty memories burn
Because you have not returned
And you know regrets
they are the hardest lessons learned

You know regrets
they are the hardest lessons learned

One Star Flag lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

Got ice in my veins and blood on my lips
and this look on my face like I don't give a shit
Everybody's acting like I'm the only one messed up
I'm staring down the barrel of a whiskey bottle
Got the hammer down and I can't find the throttle
I'm revved up red line lookin' for a place to go

And I'm headed south like a freight train bound for Texas
There's a girl in Fort Worth who swears I'm on her mind
And she tells me the bed gets cold when she's all alone
And that one star flag is waving like it's calling me home

I got nerves of steel with my head on the gate
and when I nod my head I'll be lookin' for it
When my heart beats pumpin' so hard I can't catch my breath
I hope that it blows and turns into my hand
and I'll make a move for the girls in the stand
and I'll be smiling with a choker while I'm holding up the buckle
We'll be takin' it to the bar 'cause the drinks are on me

And I'm headed south like a freight train bound for Texas
There's a girl in Fort Worth who swears I'm on her mind
And she tells me the bed gets cold when she's all alone
And that one star flag is waving like it's calling me home

Well, if you think I'm easy, you're mistakin'
This left hand will leave you shakin'
I might bend, but I won't break
You can have what you can take
Come and get it, you'll regret it
Better just walk away

And I'm headed south like a freight train bound for Texas
There's a girl in Fort Worth who swears I'm on her mind
And she tells me the bed gets cold when she's all alone
And that one star flag is waving like it's calling me home

Yeah, that one star flag is waving like it's calling me home

I'd Give Anything lyrics - Casey Donahew Band



Well, I woke up today
To an empty bed
A spot beside me where you used to lay
Was empty as my head
And I found you in the closet
With a suitcase full of clothes
You said you'd had enough of our late nights
Gonna leave and head back home

Well, what could I say to you?
When you've already made up your mind
Half these years that we spent together
Ain't nothin' but wasted time

My love won't bring her back
My pride won't beg her to stay
Now she's packin' up her things
Leavin' Dallas today
In a cloud of smoke
Cannot tell her what she means to me
But if I could have her back
Well, I'd give anything

So, I pour myself some coffee
I stare at the wall
I wonder to myself
Well, did she love me at all?
And I'm as clueless as can be
And I don't know where to turn
Lost in all directions
I guess there's nowhere I can run

My love won't bring her back
My pride won't beg her to stay
Now she's packin' up her things
Leavin' Dallas today
In a cloud of smoke
Cannot tell her what she means to me
But if I could have her back
Then I'd give anything

So, I wait by the telephone
I hope that it will ring
I'm hopin' you've had a second thought
Or a dream of you and me

My love won't bring her back
My pride won't beg her to stay
Now she's packin' up her things
Leavin' Dallas today
In a cloud of smoke
Cannot tell her what she means to me
But if I could have her back

Oh, if i could have her back

I'd give anything

Let's Not Say Goodbye Again lyrics - Casey Donahew Band


A broken bottle night
A knockdown, dragout fight
She was screamin', cryin' about the lyin'
She said, "you're not even tryin'."
So I took off to be alone
She said, "you don't have to come back home."

It's funny how the truth sounds different
You're hangin' on to every word
Do you remember when I said I love you?
How long has it been?
Well, I don't want this to end
Let's not say goodbye again

Who I used to be
Don't look the same to me
I was loud and lazy, damn near crazy
You got bored and you tried to change me
And I stepped up and we had it out
I'm not sure what the hell we're fightin' about

It's funny how the truth sounds different
You're hangin' on to every word
Do you remember when I said I love you?
How long has it been?
Well, I don't want this to end
Let's not say goodbye again

Time to time I pay the cost
Maybe it's time you realize what you lost

It's funny how the truth sounds different
You're hangin' on to every word
Do you remember when I said I love you?
How long has it been?

How long has it been?
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

How long has it been?
Well, I don't want this to end
Now, let's not say goodbye again

Could Be My Time lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

I got no reasons to be lonely
Only this drink in my hand
I got no senses
I got no money
Honey, would you like to dance?

Then your eyes, they sparkle as shards of light
that fall from a crystal ball across the floor
and I'll hold you close like mine
Your lips smell like wine or dine
I'm thinkin', this could be my time
This could be my time...

There's no words to be spoken
Broken is my heart
and I've been hidin', confidin' in myself

Then your eyes, they sparkle like shards of light
that fall from a crystal ball across the floor
and I'll hold you close like mine
Your lips smell like wine or dine
I'm thinkin', this could be my time
This could be my time...

So, I'll keep on dreamin'
Reality is just believin' there's a chance

Then your eyes'll sparkle like shards of light
that fall from a crystal ball across the floor
and I'll hold you close like mine
Your lips smell like wine or dine
I'm thinkin', this could be my time
This could be my time...

This could be my time, yeah!
This could be my time...

White Trash Story - II (The Deuce) lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

I gotta get this trailer rollin' down hill
'Cause I'm sick of sitting here still
The good times and the bad have left me broke
Grandma, she smoked all my swagger
Dale Earnhardt 3 and the rebel flag
This trailer park is going straight to hell
But I'm still first class white trash if you can't tell

Now Junior, he's a little slow
He got 18 months for the plants he grows
and Mary Lou's back on the stripper pole to pay the bills
They got barefoot kids in cut off jhorts
They spend every week down at juvie court
For startin' fights and selling grandmas pills
Sarah Anne she can't be found
I guess she got tired of being passed around
And planned a waffle house wedding
On the morning of a one night stand

I gotta get this trailer rolling down hill
'Cause I'm sick of sitting here still
The good times and the bad have left me broke
Grandma, she smoked all my swagger
Dale Earnhardt 3 and the rebel flag
This trailer park is going straight to hell
But I'm still first class white trash if you can't tell

I guess dynamite fishing was a big mistake
'Cause my john boat stuck at the bottom of the lake
I got weekend stays and 6 months community service
And there's a pitbull chained to every tree
With a cardboard sign that says, pups are free
We got pink flamingos and blow up plastic pools
We like spotlight huntin' and natural light
And the cops get called here every night
And there's a 12 gauge smoking from a woman who can take a punch

I gotta get this trailer rolling down hill
'cause I'm sick of sitting here still
The good times and the bad have left me broke
Grandma, she smoked all my swagger
Dale Earnhardt 3 and the rebel flag
This trailer park is going straight to hell
But I'm still first class white trash if you cant tell

My little sister's getting married today
And my dad's still in jail, so I'll give her away
I'm gonna get hammered drunk
And light some shit on fire

I gotta get this trailer rolling down hill
'Cause I'm sick of sitting here still
The good times and the bad are all that's left
It's either house arrest or on parole
There's no turning back, I'm out of control
And this trailer park is going straight to hell
But I'm still first class white trash if you can't tell

I'm still first class white trash (if you can't tell)

Ramblin' Kind lyrics - Casey Donahew Band


Well I've been to New York and I've been out to L.A.
I floated down the Brazos City Hurricane
Lost myself somewhere along the way
And I found myself sittin' in this cheap cafe

I was talkin' with the waitress, with the crooked smile and painted on face
She said "A-hey mister can you get me, out of this place?"

Now I'm on a Greyhound bus, rollin' hard and fast
Lookin' at the world through the bottom of my glass
Said it's a good thing I got this photographic mind
'Cause I'm just your Ramblin' kind

Sometimes I hear, a little voice inside my head
He says "Call in sick to work, sit on your couch instead
Grow yourself a beard, start actin' a little weird

Well there was a judge in Johnson County, said that I did not appear
Before his court, said I was stuck in Ft. Worth
Just sippin' on a long one, sittin on my back porch

I'm on a Greyhound bus, rollin' hard and fast
Lookin' at the world through the bottom of my glass
Said it's a good thing I got this photographic mind
'Cause I'm just your Ramblin' kind

Most of these days, I just get high and watch the tube
Hang out at my friends' place swim in their pool
I drink all o' their beer, I smoke all of their weed
I don't ever steal I just, take what I need

I'm on a Greyhound bus, rollin' hard and fast
Lookin' at the world through the bottom of my glass
Said it's a good thing I got this photographic mind
'Cause I'm just your Ramblin' kind
I said I'm just your Ramblin' kind

Next Time lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

Never felt so sick in so long
You hung up the phone and
It was short but cut me deep
And I stayed awake all night I couldn't sleep
My head is burning from the lies I keep on learning
But you know that I'll be fine
Until the next time

[Chorus:]
That the phone will ring
Next time you hear me sing and
Next time our eyes will meet
You sweep me off my feet
Next time well I wont be alone
You said you'd come back home
Until the next time

Well I'm the one who heard your lies
I saw it in your eyes and
I hope it makes you feel nice
I'm the one you sacrificed and
Lookin back I hope you think of me
Gonna break my heart and set you free
Oh but you know that I'll be fine
Until the next time

[Chorus]

Gonna take a stand and draw the line
Find a bottle and drink you off my mind
Find somebody new who
Don't look a thing like you and
Spend all night and half a day
Lovin my blues away
Oh but you know that I'll be fine
Cause there won't be a next time
Oh no, no baby
Until the next time

[Last chorus:]
That the phone will ring
And I'll have a new song I will sing
It'll be about me gettin mine
And how you were a waste of time
Next time I wont be alone
So don't bother to come back home
Cause there wont be a next time
Oh no, no baby
There wont be a next time

Breaks My Heart lyrics - Casey Donahew Band


I said what the hell
I'm goin out tonight
Maybe head downtown with some friends
And turn out the lights
Never dreamed I'd see you here
Out with someone new
Its too late to break and run
And I cant believe were through

[Chorus:]
Cause it breaks my heart
To see you here with him out on that floor
Its just not fair what you're doin
Tryin to settle up the score
And tonights gonna hurt when I'm dreaming
About you and that smile that you wore
Its not about winning,
But I cant take losing anymore

Its funny how time
Has a way of bringing pain around
And did you tell him
That I'm the one that burned you down?
Its ok to ignore me
Pretend like you don't know
I probably deserve this all
But I pray to God that it don't show

[Chorus]

Well I'm not sure how
I'm supposed to watch you walk away
You wont think of me
But I'll never forget today

[Chorus]

Its not about winning
But I can't take losing anymore
No it's not about winning...

California lyrics - Casey Donahew Band


The sun is rising up in New York
Its 3am on west coast time
When you took everything
And you left me far behind

[Chorus:]
There's no California
That's all I heard her say
Starin at this ocean
Feels so far away
I can see the sunset
All the skies are grey
She said she loves me
But not enough to stay

Since you've been gone this house feels empty
If you were lonely why'd you leave
Did I not give you everything you need?

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

Nowhere Fast lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

Well you left last night, to the beat on the floor,
Walked yourself right out the door,
Said if I see you again it will be too soon,

But I've got something to say to you,
Well I'm Ok with the fact that we're through,now
Ain't it funny how love makes the world go blind,

[Chorus]
And I don't know how far you'll make it,
Before you realize your heart is breaking,
by that time well I'll be gone,
Standin' in the driveway waivin',
There's a breath of freedom I've been cravin',
Maybe this time was the last,
you're goin' nowhere fast

Now I wont miss the late night crying,
Your accusations my denying,
If you don't trust me just say you don't,
Cuz' you say you hate me, you say I'm leavin',
I'm so tired of this not believin',
That I love you is only words,

And I don't know how far you'll make it,
Before you realize your heart is breaking, by that time well I'll be gone,
Standin' in the driveway waivin',
There's a breath of freedom I've been cravin',
Maybe this time was the last,
Oh you're goin' nowhere fast

And I take half the blame for this,
But its not you I'm gonna miss,

[Chorus]

Let Me Love You lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

Well I've been out here on this highway for a while,
I think about you girl with every passing mile,
I tell you I love you and then I turn and I walk away,
I see your lips, your face, your smile and I beg to stay,

[Chorus]
Now just let me love you, let me hold you,
Let me touch you, like you need to be touched,
Let your arms be my fire, let them burn all night long,
Let me love you like you need to be loved

Whiskey and highway, well they call my name,
All these small town dirt roads start to look the same,
I'm headed back, I hat that you're alone,
Just a few more miles until I make my way back home,

[Chorus]
Now just let me love you, let me hold you,
Let me touch you, like you need to be touched,
Let your arms be my fire, let them burn all night long,
Let me love you like you need to be loved

When those dark night finally move in,
Let this river lead me back to my only..

[Chorus]

Burn This House Down lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

I got this lighter in my hand,
A little gasoline so please just let me in,
Now your door seems soaking wet,
Well I've lost everything so I never will regret,

[Chorus]
When I burn this old house down,
Wrapped in an embrace your bodies will be found,
And I'll be running free, no one will blame me,
Cuz' I wont make a sound when I burn this old house down

I got this pistol in my hand,
And all the lights were off so I just let myself in,
And now I'm waiting for your last walk through that door,
It's hard to say goodbye but I wont be jealous anymore,

[Chorus]
When I burn this old house down,
Wrapped in an embrace your bodies will be found,
And I'll be running free, no one will blame me,
Cuz' I wont make a sound when I burn this old house down

I know I'll miss you and the lies that stormed your heart,
go and strike a match and watch your whole world fall apart,

[Repeat Chorus]

Break Me Down lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

It's only been a week since I've been gone,
7 days just don't seem too long,
We've been fighting since I left,
You can't let the past be,
You me tell that it's over and say stay away from me,

[Chorus]
Girl you're breaking me down,
Down, down, down
And I cant seem to stand my ground
You're breaking me down,
Down, down, down
And I cant seem to stand my ground

I borrow a little money,
Catch a first flight into town,
You're driving me crazy,
Just might burn this whole street down,
Seems so familiar yet I'm somehow out of place,
I cant take no more, I've got to see your face

[Chorus]
Girl you're breaking me down,
Down, down, down
And I cant seem to stand my ground
You're breaking me down,
Down, down, down
And I cant seem to stand my ground

When you break me down...

You break me down and it feels like this wind is here for good,
We wasted hours talking about those things we never could,
You reach for my hand but with a chill it starts to shake,
My body says I want you but my soul just cannot take,

[Chorus]

You break me down..

Strong Enough lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

She told me to not to call her,
So I told her that I wouldn't,
Tried my best to forget her but I couldn't
I'm not strong enough to watch her walk away

Standing in the middle of the street broken hearted,
Trying to wrap my mind around the reasons that we parted,
I'm not strong enough to watch her walk away,
Now I'm not strong enough to make her stay

[Chorus]
Well I should of saw the signs that were pointing that direction,
Looking in her eyes I could see there's no affection,
Everyone kept saying that it's never gonna last,
I'm the only one still living in the past

Walking in a circle while feeling so confused,
I'm the one to blame she's the one who got used,
I'm not strong enough to watch her walk away,

Twisted off and turned down past the point of no returning,
Standing at the bottom still looking for her light still burning,
I'm not strong enough to watch her walk away,
Now I'm not strong enough to make her stay

[Chorus]
Well I should of saw the signs that were pointing that direction,
Looking in her eyes I could see there's no affection,
Everyone kept saying that it's never gonna last,
I'm the only one still living in the past

[Repeat chorus]

Broken lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

Maybe she'll save me, maybe she'll understand,
Maybe she'll walk down that road and lead me back again,
Or maybe she'll hold me, maybe she'll ease my pain
Or maybe she'll wrap me in her arms until we feel the same,

[Chorus]
Cuz I've got a feeling that my heart is breaking,
And I'm not sure if my soul is even worth taking,
And when I find myself out of there and I'm choking,
I will be looking for you to fix the pieces that are broken

Maybe she'll leave me, maybe I'm too far gone
And from the way I'm acting lately, she may not be wrong
Or maybe she'll cuss my name, maybe I damned her life,
Or maybe her ears can't hear not one more of my lies,

[Chorus]
Cuz I've got a feeling that my heart is breaking,
And I'm not sure if my soul is even worth taking,
And when I find myself out of there and I'm choking,
I will be looking for you to fix the pieces that are broken

And when I find myself out of there and I'm choking,
I will be looking for you to fix the pieces that are broken

Angel lyrics - Casey Donahew

Her wings are broken, and she never prays,
And that old halo on her head has seen better days,
She knows he's watching, she feels him there,
and it breaks her heart to think the weight was too much bare,

[Chorus]
She's an angel that's lost her way,
She's an angel from another day,
She may be the devil, sent to lead me a stray
But I think she's an angel that's lost her way

She's got lines running up her arms like an L.A. Freeway,
I've dropped her off at rehab 7 times but she just won't stay,
She never climbed a mountain but she's seen her share of stone,
She got locked up in Johnson County for selling pills and blow

[Chorus]
She's an angel that's lost her way,
She's an angel from another day,
She may be the devil, sent to lead me a stray
But I think she's an angel that's lost her way

She's got 3 kids that don't know her name,
She's sold her body a couple of times to ease the pain,
She wakes up screaming, her face full of tears,
She's only 29 but she's aged beyond her years

[Chorus]

Moving On lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

Two packs a day and a smoker's cough
She told me quit and I flipped her off
Everybody thinks they know whats best for me
They're all too blind to see that I walk alone
A squealin tires and a door slam
She's drunk again, I don't give a damn
Everybody's got their own cross to bear
Stop acting like I should care, cause I don't condone

[Chorus:]
Now it's judgement day, I got the devil to pay
And I'm riding shotgun down a burning highway tonight
I'm searching for a state of execution
Maybe just an ounce of absolution to make things right
And if I'm high, I'm elevated
I'm not worn, I'm a little faded but I'm not gone
And if I had it my way, I'd find me another day to say
I'm moving on

I kicked the hinge right off the door
Shattered glass across the floor
An old syringe and a bag of pills
That's where she finds her thrills
But I think she's lost

And I don't have any regrets
But I'm not finished yet
Bloodshot eyes and whiskey breath
Some things are worse than death
But I hate the cost

[Chorus]

Watch me--I'm moving on...

[Chorus]

Let You Down lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

She turned 21 in April,
You know her birthday's the same as mine
When we first met she'd never left Texas
She was young and so confused
She got caught up in the bright lights
The whiskey, pills and all those late nights
From the mountain where we standing,
She fell so far that she could not see

[Chorus]
And I was angry when I woke up
When I found out that we broke up
She packed her bags, she was gone before the sun
She left a letter on the table,
Said catch me if you're able
But I'll be moving fast and I'm still hard to find
So I wont call you and I wont follow
Cause the truth is hard to swallow
Said I'd pick you up, but I'd only let you down.

Heard from a friend you moved back to Corpus
You always loved that ocean air
I know that you know that I'm headed down that way
Don't worry cause I wont call
It'd be strange for me to see you
You know there's so much left unsaid

[Chorus]

Said I'd pick you up but I'd only let you down

Wrote you a letter while in Corpus
It took everything I had
Went down to the pier and looked out across that bay
Took that letter then I watched it burn away

[Chorus]

Said I'd pick you up but I'd only let you down

No Doubt lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

I hear you're lookin' for a cowboy to take you for a ride
Well baby, I think that I'm your man
'Cause I've been broken and busted
But these spurs still ain't rusted, and this saddle it's a wonder she'll still ride
And it's gonna be a long night, so baby hold on tight
I talk slow, but I still move real fast
I'm here for the real deal, and your heart's all that I'll steal
And girl there won't be no doubt

You can't resist my Resistol
It's black as the nightfall
My boots they're leather and hide
I'm here for a wild ride
I'll stand right by your side
And we'll dance til the sun comes up
And I'm tore up from the floor up, look down and look up
I'm a cowboy from my head to my toes
And this rodeo's all I know
I'll put on a real show
And girl there won't be no doubt

I've been thrown, I've been bruised
Tossed and confused
Eight seconds can seem like a day
But stay out of my way
'Cause I come to play
And eight seconds is all that I'll stay

You can't resist my Resistol
It's black as the nightfall
My boots they're leather and hide
I'm here for a wild ride
I'll stand right by your side
And we'll dance til the sun comes up
And I'm tore up from the floor up, look down and look up
I'm a cowboy from my head to my toes
And this rodeo's all I know
I'll put on a real show
And girl there won't be no doubt

I love a girl with a tramp stamp
A double dockin' boat ramp
Whiskey - shaken, never stirred
Tank tops and flip flops
Those all night long truck stops
And beer when it's cold and when it's free

You can't resist my Resistol
It's black as the nightfall
My boots they're leather and hide
I'm here for a wild ride
I'll stand right by your side
And we'll dance til the sun comes up
And I'm tore up from the floor up, look down and look up
I'm a cowboy from my head to my toes
And this rodeo's all I know
I'll put on a real show
And girl there won't be no doubt
No, girl, there won't be no doubt

I hear you're lookin' for a cowboy to take you for a ride
Well baby, I think that I'm your man

Fallen lyrics - Casey Donahew Lyrics

When I came home you said "you're crazy"
Ya know, I think you're probably right
Cause I've been out and I've been drinkin'
I left you all alone again last night
You haven't cried that I've noticed
But I don't notice much at all
And what's that suitcase by the front door
Said I can't stand to watch you fall

But I've already fallen
I've already lost control
I've already missed
And I've already sold my soul
And I've already cried
And I wish that I was flyin'
But I'll keep on fallin'

Now I won't even try to stop you
You're better off with someone new
And I hope that you don't remember
All the pain that I've put you through
You'll find a new love, and you'll be happy
And you won't think of me at all
And all those nights you've tried to save me
I'd stumble and I'd fall

But I've already fallen
I've already lost control
I've already missed
And I've already sold my soul
And I've already cried
And I wish that I was flyin'
But I'll keep on fallin'

I've already fallen
I've already lost control
I've already missed
And I've already sold my soul
And I've already cried
And I wish that I was flyin'
But I'll keep on...

But I keep on fallin'

Runaway Train lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

Got this empty feelin'
Broken soul and I'm not believin' that
She's gone and I'm the fool again
Up high, take me down
The time goes on and my tears hit the ground
And I look back, I find that she's a friend
I'm runnin' fast, I'm gettin' nowhere
And I still remember the smell of your hair
And the way you looked whenever I would hitch a ride

And you were headed south on a runaway train
My life's in pieces like a broken picture frame
Love to hold you, but you long to be free
You need somebody, and I don't think that it's me
You walked away without sayin' a word
I tried to call you, but I guess you never heard
That was me and I was screamin' your name
But you were headed south on this runaway train

I still recall the day we met
The sky was cloudy how could I forget the way you looked in that blue dress
I sit alone in a room of friends and scattered thoughts dance through my head and I wonder if you'd ever love me at all
By my next picture in my head, and I still remember the last thing you said was
I've gotta go, and please don't follow me

And you were headed south on a runaway train
My life's in pieces like a broken picture frame
Love to hold you, but you long to be free
You need somebody, and I don't think that it's me
You walked away without sayin' a word
I tried to call you, but I guess you never heard
That was me and I was screamin' your name
But you were headed south on this runaway train

Yeah you were headed south on a runaway train
My life's in pieces like a broken picture frame
Love to hold you, but you long to be free
You need somebody, and I don't think that it's me
You walked away without sayin' a word
I tried to call you, but I guess you never heard
That was me and I was screamin' your name
But you were headed south on this runaway train

Runaway
Runaway
Runaway

Better Off Alone lyrics - Casey Donahew Band

Empty on the hours
And empty on the days
I've locked up all the doors
Take me on my way

Down a broken road of questions
That lead me to a lie
To a cold night in December
When we both sat down to cry

Now will you carve my name upon a stone?
Will you lay me down to rest?
Do you think I'll see my father's father
Do you think I'll pass his test?
Will you whisper "Lord please keep me,
always walk right by my side"?
Will you place the coins upon my eyes
To pay the boatman for the ride?

[Chorus:]
Well I was standing in the drizzling rain
Just long enough to wash away my pain
And realize that she's never coming home
She said "I won't come back"
I said "Don't come back, I'm better off alone"

She called me from a pay phone
South of San Antone
And I could hear somebody talking
But she swore she was alone
You know it sounded so familiar
I pray to God that I am wrong
I always thought she'd leave me
I never dreamed he'd go along

[Chorus X2]

I'm better off alone
