Close to you

Written By: Bobby Kendall and Rich Ortiz

Verse 1:
It took a while, but I knew this day would come
Ive gotta get out of here if I want to be someone
Its hard to leave everything that Ive ever known
Ive gotta get out of here if I wanna be someone


So give me one more ride in a pickup truck
one more shot at a rack buck
give me one more sunday afternoon BBQ
Give me one more dip in the swimmin hole
one more cast with a fishin pole
one more night to get real close to you, Close to you

Verse 2:

You help me, get my things together
dont worry baby I wont be forever
I held you in my arms and wiped away a tear
Watched you fade away in that rear view mirror



Old Treestand

Written By: Bobby Kendall and Brian Goodnight

Verse 1:
A five hour sit in an old treestand
My grandpa built with his two hands
Thats what im livin for
The stories he told after a long days hunt
The smile on his face when god called him up
Thats what im livin for

Chorus 1:

Sometimes when im lonley
I pay a visit to that old man
Yeah I live for every moment
In that old treestand

Verse 2:

Now I work hard five days a week
Trying to start this family
Thats what im livin for
When the day is done I watch NBC
Cause I got brothers in the middle east
and thats what im livin for

Chorus 2:

I load the gun when the weekend comes
and you can bet on where I am
cause I live for every moment
In that old treestand


Ive never gone to church on sunday
But St Pete’s gonna let me in
Cause Ive done all my talking to the man
From that old treestand
