    NEVER GOOD AT MATH Gotta be a hundred guys in here tonight That’s two hundred eyes on you Only one of us gonna get it right Ninety-nine are gonna lose A little courage gotta count for something So, girl, here goes nothing CH I got twenty dollars in my pocket Ninety minutes till they close Enough to buy a round or two After that nobody knows Let’s subtract these other guys Add a slow dance in that jukebox light Odds are that I don’t stand a chance (*I know the odds that I'm lookin' at) But I was never good at math I was never good at math I swear I caught you lookin’ my way At least a dozen times There’s a million reasons I should just walk away But girl I can’t count that high CHORUS repeat I got twenty dollars in my pocket Ninety minutes till they close Enough to buy a round or two After that nobody knows Let’s subtract these other guys Girl, I’ll make that smile multiply Odds are that I don’t stand a chance But I was never good at math I was never good at math

    I'll Get Over You When the stars over Texas are no longer burnin bright When the Mighty Mississippi has all run dry When Jesus comes back one day, when the sun becomes the moon Maybe that’s when I’ll get over you CH I have good days and bad days But they’re always want you back days Some scars time can’t heal Try to hide the hurt behind me But your memory always finds me Ain’t no escapin’ how I feel When husbands are always right and wives are always wrong When I hear somethin better than a good ol Waylon song When every politician just up and tells the truth Maybe that’s when I’ll get over you (BREAKDOWN) CH When a man can go back in time, undo his mistakes When he realizes what he’s got before it’s way too late When a broken heart can fix itself just as good as new Maybe that’s when I’ll get over you Yeah, maybe that’s when I’ll get over you (BREAKDOWN)

    Three Bars Ago You slammed the door so hard you knocked the pictures off the shelf And I’m pretty sure the neighbors heard the names you called me when you left Now I mighta cried a tear or three Over the loss of you and me But I wasn’t bout to sit around and forget you all my myself CH First stop was a Chili’s for some suds and wings Got to watch the big game on a hundred inch screen Then a few doors down I got my beer pong on Beat all of Delta Kappa, guess my game was strong Last stop, Jim’s Karaoke For some pretty good Prince and even better Bon Jovi There was a time I cared you let me go But baby that was three bars ago Now I got all these new friends and girl it’s all thanks to you And there’s a redhead on my arm rockin a lower back tattoo I’m the most popular guy in town tonight Never was a social butterfly But I finally found my wings way back on Fifth Avenue (where it all started with) REPEAT CH Now if you'da hit me up back then I might still be in your arms I remembered you after one or two but that third one was the charm REPEAT CH

    Live that Song lyrics Brad McKinney/Joel Wayne (Verse 1) We laid there on southern ground Feelin like we owned the whole damn town Just watchin the stars in that summer sky Breathin in the heat of that mid July Your momma told you girl you better not be comin home too late Just then those speakers started pumpin a little George Strait ...so you made her wait (chorus) Let's take it on back to that day Honey let that melody play put that baby on auto replay I wanna live that song with you Warm summertime breeze a blowin Them firefly tails a glowin Our jam on the radio and I wanna live that song with you (Verse 2) Fast forward one year, county fair In a ferris wheel about a million feet in the air That ol tub got stuck with us right up at the top You were scared to death so I pulled you in my arms Pretty little pulse a racin to the beat as the music played and the sounds of Sweet Home Alabama went runnin through our veins (Repeat chorus) (Bridge) Three simple chords and I'm right there by your side Ain't it funny how a little tune can turn back time (Repeat chorus) (Tag) Two hearts beating in three quarters time The best thing I've ever heard in my life I wanna live that song with you

    One more shot Brad McKinney (Verse 1) You said goodbye Last Saturday Said you'd had enough of my drunken no-good ways I eased the pain best way I knew how I spent every hour of every day in every bar in town and I threw down one, by one, by one, by one (chorus) One more shot of Johnny Black One more thought of what we had One more shot of Johnny Blue chased with one more memory of you Now God knows what I'll have to do To get one more shot with you (Verse 2) I can't wipe away your parting words No matter what I do They say hindsight's 20-20 I'm a living 40 proof Said "It's either me or the alcohol so make up your damn mind" Now I'm dealin with the choice I made one shooter at a time and I throw down One, by one, by one by one by one by one (repeat chorus) (Bridge) Now if I'm lookin to get back to what we had I won't find it in the bottom of this glass (repeat chorus) Tag Oh, one more shot One more shot with you

    “Finer Things” Writers: Brad McKinney, Les Bowe, and Hayden Cain Verse 1 You ain’t gonna find me drinking bubbly At some pinky up, crystal cup party Don’t fly/need first class, I love a cheap draft And a Prius just ain’t the car for me I don’t eat caviar on a big-ass yacht Give me a 2-stroke boat and a brown bag Never had an eye for the fancy life But girl, you’re changin’ all that, ‘cause Chorus Those emerald eyes and champagne smile Got this blue collar boy livin in style Now I’m thinkin’ bout limos and diamond rings Yeah girl when it comes to you I like the finer things Verse 2 Girl you make the living room feel like a ballroom When you’re slayin’ it, swayin’ to some vinyl Turn any dive bar into a five star Wherever we are, I get lost inside Chorus Those emerald eyes and champagne smile Got this blue collar boy livin in style Now I’m thinkin’ bout limos and diamond rings Yeah girl when it comes to you I like the finer things Bridge I’m a simple man, some things never change But I’m learning to love the high life a little more every day Chorus Those emerald eyes and champagne smile Got this blue collar boy livin in style Now I’m thinkin’ bout limos and diamond rings Yeah girl when it comes to you I like the finer things The finer things
