Bristol

(Written By: Z. Shelton, M. Graham, S. Tyler)

Diamond brought the devil in
now I’m out here burying what’s mine
red clay crimes
new highway
signs I’m struggling
with second generation sin their mine
now the earth will hold her blind

Keep me far from Bristol or keep her far from me
Keep my blood from boiling or get me out of Tennessee

Darling Cora, Molly Dear
lost a man, gained a fear their mine
mine to mirror, now hold my prayers are far from prison doors
and I feel the breeze no more, They’re mine
close as the Virginia line

Keep me far from Bristol or keep her far from me
Keep my blood from boiling or get me out of Tennessee
God,Keep me far from Bristol or keep her far from me
Keep my blood from boiling or get me out of Tennessee

I thought my love would hold her near, I never thought that it would break her
I know I am my daddy’s child but now it seems that I can’t, wake her
hounded by my maker, keep me far

Keep me far from Bristol or keep her far from me
Keep my blood from boiling or get me out of Tennessee
God, keep me far from Bristol or keep her far from me
Keep my blood from boiling or get me out of Tennessee

Line of Fire

(Written By: Z. Shelton)

He got up early for work like any other typical day
Before he makes his coffee he bows his head and he prays
It ain’t a glamorous job but it pays the bills on every Friday afternoon
He says sometimes in life you just gotta do what you gotta do

He ain’t looking to be someone you’d put on TV
He ain’t trying to be a star,he just wants to do his part
That boy will stand for his own or when the colors are flown
He’s convicted from the very beat of his heart
He’s ain’t trying to be a hero for folks to admire
He’s an American man
Doing his duty in the line of fire

Before he signed his name he never even knew where Iraq was
All he had was a killer in his hand and a freshly cut buzz
He knew that he was needed on the other side, of this crazy world
But he hated to leave behind his mama and his daddy and his favorite girl

He ain’t looking to be someone you’d put on TV
He ain’t trying to be a star,he just wants to do his part
That boy will stand for his own or when the colors are flown
He’s convicted from the very beat of his heart
He’s ain’t trying to be a hero for folks to admire
He’s an American man
Doing his duty in the line of fire

He ain’t looking to be someone you’d put on TV
He ain’t trying to be a star,he just wants to do his part
That boy will stand for his own or when the colors are flown
He’s convicted from the very beat of his heart
He’s ain’t trying to be a hero for folks to admire
He’s an American man
Doing his duty in the line of fire

Doing his duty in the line of fire
 

Forget Us Not

(Written By: Z. Shelton, M. Graham, S. Tyler)

Forget me, forget you, forget us not
Over 60 years combined and only 2 apart
Forget me, forget you, forget us not
I’m the choice your mother made
But you’re the only one I’d want

Holding on a breath
Waiting on an answer
From the men who move in white
Around a sterile afternoon
The five names that we raised
Each with dusty knees
Are closer than they’ve been in years
Sad and happy tears
I wish it’d been a different room...

Forget me, forget you, forget us not
Over 60 years combined and only 2 apart
Forget me, forget you, forget us not
I’m the choice your mother made
But you’re the only one I’d want

If I had the chance
I’d say the words that
Blush your face all red, in front of
Anyone and everyone I can
I remember you’d
Forgive me any lie I told,
If it meant I’d forgive you, for leaving me too soon
Will lunch still be at noon?

Forget me, forget you, forget us not
Over 60 years combined and only 2 apart
Forget me, forget you, forget us not
I’m the choice your mother made
But you’re the only one I’d want

Darlin, you’re the only one... I’d want

Dear Juliet,

(Written By: Z. Shelton, C. Lockwood)

Well I’ve been looking for this Juliet
And I’m wondering if you’ve seen her
I hear her smile can break a heart in half
But that’s ok cause half’s for her

I sometimes wonder if she needs me too
If her sun is shining and if her skies are blue
The day I find her like a long lost friend
I’ll smile and ask her “Where ya’ been?"

I’ve been looking for you
I’ve been looking for you
I’ve been looking for you
I’ve been looking for you

This road is rough and it can feel so long
Make a man feel like he don’t belong
Once I find her I’ll never let her go
If you see her let her know
If you see her

I don’t want to seem like a hopeless romantic
I just want to have you by my side
So I’ll wait for the timing to be perfect
'Til then you’ll be in the back of my mind
I can’t wait to see that smile

I’ve been looking for you
I’ve been looking for you
I’ve been looking for you
I’ve been looking for you

I keep looking for you baby
I keep looking for that smile
What have you been doing lately?
I sure hope you’ll stay awhile

I’ve been looking for this Juliet
And I’m wondering if you’ve seen her

Winnebago

(Written By: R. Harris, G. Johnson) 

He’s got the tank topped off and the luggage packed
There’s a Rand-McNally open in her lap
And they’re gonna visit every dog-eared page
Just a couple loose ends they need to nail down
The leaves will turn before they’re back in town
Get the mail held and the water bill paid
They both know they should’ve done this years ago
They’ve got three months and a Winnebago
 
They’re gonna love the way they’ve been loving all their lives
The perfect picture of a husband and wife
Who’ve loved all the way to the end of the road
And found the quiet peace that comes with letting go
They’ve got three months and a Winnebago
 
They’ve looked their worst fear in the eye
The doctor said “we’ve got things we could try
But it’s a little too late to be much help.”
And to them this feels just like a dream
Like they’re watching life on a movie screen
This kind of thing only happens to someone else
No need to wonder how or when ‘cause now they know
They’ve got three months and a Winnebago
 
They’re gonna love the way they’ve been loving all their lives
The perfect picture of a husband and wife
Who’ve loved all the way to the end of the road
And found the quiet peace that comes with letting go
Yeah, there’s a quiet peace that comes with letting go
They’ve got three months and a Winnebago
 
He’s got the tank topped off and the luggage packed
There’s a Rand-McNally open in her lap
And they’re gonna visit every dog-eared page
