Classic Country Lyrics We Love

Posted on July 11 2013

Today we’re feelin’ sentimental, and throwin’ it back to some of our all-time favorite country classics.

Yeah, you’ve heard ‘em a million times, but they never cease to make you tap your foot, smile, and maybe even sing along.

Better than I was
More than I am
And all of this happened
By takin’ your hand

And who I am now
Is who I wanted to be
And now that we’re together
I’m stronger than ever
I’m happy and free

Oh, it’s a beautiful thing
Don’t think I can keep it all in, no
And if you asked me why I changed
All I gotta do is say your sweet name

It’s your love
It just does somethin’ to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can’t get enough
And if you wonder
About the spell I’m under
It’s your love

“It’s Your Love” Time McGraw and Faith HIll

One thing I know
No matter where I go
I keep my heart and soul
In the boondocks

And I can feel that
Muddy water runnin’ through my veins
And I can hear that
lullaby of the midnight train
And it sings to me and it sounds familiar

“Boondocks” Little Big Town

Dear Son, I know I ain’t written
And sittin’ here tonight alone in the kitchen
It occurs to me I might not have said it, So I’ll say it now
Son, You make me Proud

I hold it up and show my buddies
Like we ain’t scared and our boots ain’t muddy
But no one Laughs ‘ Cause ain’t nothin’
Funny when a Soldier Cries, and I just wipe my eyes
I fold it up and put in my shirt get back to work
And it keeps me drivin’ on, waitin’ on,
Letters from home.

“Letters From Home” John Michael Montgomery

And be it the wind
Or the rain
Or the moon up in the sky
The spin of the earth
Or the changes in the tide
I don’t know what brought us together
What strange forces of nature conspired
To construct the present
From the past

“I’ll Go on Loving You” Alan Jackson

Just look at you, girl
Standin’ here beside me
Starlight on your hair
Lookin’ like a dream
I dreamed somewhere
And look at me, girl
You got me actin’ just like a lover
In an old time picture show
And how I got the part
I just don’t know
But it’s written all across your face
Plain as it can be
You’re the one that I was lookin’ for
Now you’re all that I can see

“Look at You Girl” Chris LeDoux

Bet you’ve never heard ol’ Marshall Dillion say,
“Miss Kitty have you ever thought of running away
Settling down would you marry me?
If I asked you twice and begged you pretty please?”
She’d have said yes in a New York minute
They never tied the knot
His heart wasn’t in it
He just stole a kiss as he rode away
He never hung his hat up at Kitty’s place

I should’ve been a cowboy
I should’ve learned to rope and ride
Wearing my six-shooter riding my pony on a cattle drive
Stealing the young girl’s hearts
Just like Gene and Roy
Singing those campfire songs
Oh I should’ve been a cowboy

“Should’ve Been a Cowboy” Toby Keith


(Classic Toby Keith with a mullet. Swoon…)

Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookin’ back, it’s just a steppin’ stone
To where we are, where we’ve been
Said we’d do it all again
Remember when

Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won’t be sad, we’ll be glad
For all the life we’ve had
And we’ll remember when

“Remember When” Alan Jackson

Well around five or round six
I forgot what I came to forget
And after round seven or was it eight
I bought a round for the whole damn place

And after nine rounds with Jose Cuervo
They were countin’ me out I was about to give in
And after ten rounds with Jose Cuervo
I lost count and started counting again

“Ten Rounds With Jose Cuervo” Tracy Byrd

The way you look, the way you laugh,
The way you love with all you have,
Your dance, your drive, you make me feel alive.

“Ain’t Nothin’ Bout You” Brooks and Dunn

I was caught somewhere between a woman and a child
When one restless summer we found love growing wild
On the banks of the river on a well beaten path
It’s funny how those memories they last
Like strawberry wine, and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love oh bittersweet
Green on the vine,
Like strawberry wine

“Strawberry Wine” Deana Carter

Seasons change, rivers wind
Tumble weeds roll, and the stars shine
Wind howls, dawn breaks
Cowboys ride, and time slips away
And I love you,
It just come natural

“It Just Comes Natural” George Strait


(Check out this Easton Corbin cover of the George Strait classic… We ♥ you, Easton.)

I got a little change in my pocket going jingle lingle ling,
Want to call you on the telephone baby I give you a ring
But each time we talk, I get the same old thing
Always no huggin’, no kissin’ until I get a wedding ring
My honey my baby, don’t put my love up on no shelf
She said, “Don’t give no lines and keep your hands to yourself.”

“Keep Your Hands to Yourself” The Georgia Satellites

Momma’s waiting to tuck her in
As she stumbles up those stairs
She smiles back at him dragging that teddy bear
Sleep tight, blue eyes and bouncing curls

He smiles
There goes my life
There goes my future my everything
I love you, daddy goodnight
There goes my life

She had that Honda loaded down
With Abercrombie clothes and fifteen pairs of shoes and his American express
He checked the oil and slammed the hood, said your good to go
She hugged them both and headed off to the west coast

And he cried
There goes my life
There goes my future, my everything
I love you
Baby, goodbye

“There Goes My Life” Kenny Chesney

You and me going fishin’ in the dark
Lying on our backs and counting the stars
Where the cool grass grows
Down by the river in the ole moonlight
We’ll be falling in love in the middle of the night
Just moving slow
Spend the whole night through
Feels so good to be with you

“Fishin’ In The Dark” Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

I went skydiving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Blue Manchu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I’d been denying”
And he said
“Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying”

“Live Like You Were Dying” Tim McGraw

She’s a rebel child
And a preacher’s daughter
She was baptized in dirty water
Her mama cried the first time
They caught her with me
They knew they couldn’t stop her

She holds tight to me and the Bible
On the back seat of my motercycle
Left her daddy standin’ there
Preachin’ to the choir
You see…God love her
Oh me and God love her

“God Love Her” Toby Keith
