Track Name: Tequila Song
Well I ain't got a lot in the way of money,
but I can show you a grand time.
Two shots of tequila and two little slices of lime and
we could have a real good time

Well I could take you out for a drive,
but two wheels is what I prefer.
But a good old pair of walking boots and your sweet little hand in mine and
we could have a real good time

I know it's not diamonds
I know it ain't no pearl
but what I would do for little old you, well
I would give you the world
I would give you the world

Well I ain't got a lot in the way of money
but I can show you a grand time
Two shots of tequila and two little slices of lime and
we could have a real good time x3
Track Name: Chevy Spark
Well I slept in the back of your little Chevy Spark
and I woke in the night with an ache in my heart
You didn't think that my love was true
What in the world is a girl to do?

Oh no, oh no,
my baby don't believe me
No more, no more,
my baby don't believe me no more.

Well this boy I tell you well I fell right in love
Stole my old heart when he fell from above
but he backed me into a corner or two
what in the world is a girl to do?

oh no, oh no,
my baby don't believe me
no more, no more,
my baby don't believe me no more.

Well I thought we had something
the way he looked me in the eyes
but you couldn't see it plain
and baby, well ain't that just a shame?

so I buried my feet in that warm beach sand
and I knew it when he wouldn't hold my hand
you wouldn't trust me cause you couldn't see you
what in the world is a girl to do?

oh no, oh no,
my baby don't believe me
no more, no more
I left my baby
Track Name: Sadison
You say I'm your dream girl
Here I am firmly planted in the real world
But from the other side of the fence
grass looks the same as it always did

and how can I be honest
with the ones I really love
my words always seem to cut too deep
swear that I never meant to make you bleed

I spent the whole night with your girlfriend
and I felt bad the whole evening through
cause she was sweet, and you weren't sweeter
and I was falling in love with you

oh what did I do?
I've gone and made a fool
of us two and you
oh what did I do?

oh I'm sorry that I did it
but I know sorry ain't worth shit
she was a friend and I was a faker, baby,
and I won't soon forget it

and I won't soon forget it
Track Name: Blue Collar Girl
She don't know
the value of a dollar bill cause
Mama still pays her rent

Got a brand new car
so she can drive all around town and
it don't cost her a cent

Maybe I'm just bitter,
or I'm being cruel,
but when it comes to working for a living well,
I know a thing or two
cause I'm a

hard worker and I work for what I got
cause when you're a blue collar girl well the green sure matters a lot
hard worker and I work til my back aches
just hoping that one of these days I'll catch a break

She works a shift a week
but she's always dying to leave
cause she's got better places to go

what a luxury
to be so careless and free
sweat on her brow, she'll never know

Dad will buy her education
she'll treat it like a party
while I'm stuck here working for a living trying to earn my degree
cause I'm a

hard worker and I work for what I got
cause when you're a blue collar girl well the green sure matters a lot
hard worker and I work til my back aches
just hoping that one of these days I'll catch a break

maybe I'm just bitter
or I'm being cruel
but when it comes to working for a living well
I know a thing or two
cause I'm a

hard worker and I work for what I got
cause when you're a blue collar girl well the green sure matters a lot
hard worker and I work til my back aches
just hoping that one of these days I'll catch a break
Track Name: Before the Ink Dries
I don't know what it is
about him that I can't shake
Have to stare at the floor
just to avoid his gaze

but just one glance and oh my
back in his arms before the ink dries

asked for another chance
after I gave him two
those brown eyes tell lies
and oh that boy does too

but just one glance and oh my
back in his arms before my tears dry

it all seems so familiar
swear that I've been here before
how can he be my lover
when my heart it still so sore?

well I said goodbye
one too many times
but here I am, once again,
Hello Heartbreak (x2)

it's true that we had our highs
but oh, I felt those lows
and I won't be feelin' alright
until all those wounds have closed

we poisoned it from the start
shot my own foot with my own gun
I thought we could work things out
sometimes, it's better to turn and run

it all seems so familiar
swear that I've been here before
how can he be my lover
when my heart it still so sore?

well I said goodbye
one too many times
but here I am, once again,
Hello Heartbreak (x2)
