Lyrics

Say Goodbye

Written By: Troy Gray

Say Goodbye

I'm not the one going out in high heels I'm not the one to leave my lover at home It's been a nice weekend for using me to get what you want I give into your games for a night of love just to go out and get it on You get what you need every night and some that you don't.

Chorus:

The more you lie The more I say goodbye The more you lie The more I say goodbye The more you lie The more you cry The more you cry The more you die The more you lie The more I say goodbye

You can get ready at my house Or if you get ready at all You have to stay apart just to stay together so what you say I waste all my time waiting on your phone call Pissin it all away You tell me what you're doing Same shit - different day

Chorus:

All your ex's live in TX and Knoxville TN I don't care about that So why should he You have guys left and right you try to hide them the best that you can Don't I wait on you like an hourglass driftin sand

Chorus:

Hillbilly

Written By: Troy Gray

Hillbilly
Hold down the fort Hold on to the reigns Holding on to yourself Not taking shit from a man Your deisels Lord the mothers hum Take them rev the engines high Make them smoke and cruise Got my engine from a sister from a saint I ride I got your song It's like a circus Like a show stopper kick in your face I sing about a thing or two And tell ya of my disease yeah.

Chorus:

I'm more than more I'm calling out I'm getting down with the shit I got a hillbilly sound from way back

I'm a redneck mother fucker That's just what I want you to tell me I sow the good seed You live a lie You run and hide I'm filled with Southbound pride. Go. Bocephus knows I don't slip on a lip I'm singing Go eat your cupcakes Don't hurt yourself I got a callous mind Don't care to tell you to your face And your familiar with my ways So listen to me Ya hear me
