Lyrics

East Coast Country Girl

Written By: Geoff Cox & Melissa Nichols

There's more to me than meets the eye
Not the same old country belle
This 5-foot gal you see here
Has a different tale to tell
I may not have those Southern roots
But I can still raise hell

So check me out
'Cause there ain't no doubt
That I'm an East Coast Country Girl

Listening to the crashing waves
Along the Eastern shore
With a different beat, that song in my heart
Opened up a brand new door
So this dreamer's Nashville bound
To turn it into something more

Don't hold me back
I don't have much to pack
'Cause I'm an East Coast Country...

CHORUS:
[call:] Girl... East Coast Country Girl...
[response:] The ocean breezes in my hair
My music's taking me somewhere
The springboard to a whole new world
For me (An East Coast country girl)

SOLO:

BRIDGE:
I'm not disrespecting my home town.
You know soon I'll be back around...
When I'm here, life just slows down.
I need to chase a different sound.

I got my ride all set
I'm pointed west
Got a place to call my home

Just a couple days drive
Down to Music City
Out where the guitars roam

When I get to that place
I'll never be alone

There's no Southern drawl
Just a friendly "Hey Y'all"
From this East Coast Country...

CHORUS:
Girl... East Coast Country Girl...
[response:] The sound that feeds my soul lives here
It's mine when I come back each year
Every trip I link a pearl
To the chain of wisdom

Ham, Jam & Biscuits

Written By: Anna Sekerak & Geoff Cox

He ran from the bus to shelter from the pourin’ rain
The neon of that greasy spoon callin’ out his name
With an hour to kill, he sat down at the counter
Thinkin’ ‘bout friends he left behind when he saw her

She asked, “Soldier, what can I get you? Is there somethin’ you’ve been missin’?”
He said, “Darlin’, don’t know where to begin” and she sat down to listen.

Been missin’ Ham, Jam n’Biscuits
Like Momma used to fix it
Green grass growin’ beneath my feet
Sunday Church, a good night’s sleep
Singin’ with Garth on the front porch swing
Dreamin’ ‘bout the girl who’ll wear my ring
N’ Wakin’ up to Ham, Jam n’Biscuits.

She found herself drawn to this man that she barely knew
Hopin' the rain wouldn't let up as she served his food
They talked n’ laughed and talked some more ‘bout everything
Secretly wonderin’ what the future might bring

When the rain cleared and the bus appeared - too soon to end this perfect day
He said, “Darlin’, guess I’m headin’ home - as he left he heard her say …

Home is Ham, Jam n’Biscuits
Like Momma used to fix it
Green grass growin' beneath our feet
Sunday Church, a good night's sleep
Singin' with Garth on the front porch swing
Dreamin' bout the boy that'll give me his ring
N’ makin' some Ham, Jam n’Biscuits

Walkin' away from this girl he barely knew
Felt like his purple heart was breakin’ right in two
It was then & there he knew he had to stay
And when their wedding came, the preacher heard him say...

Home is Ham, Jam n’Biscuits
Like only you can fix it
Green grass growin’ beneath our feet
Sunday Church, a good night’s sleep
Singin’ with Garth on the front porch swing
Kissin’ the girl who’s wearin' my ring
N’ Wakin’ up to Ham, Jam n’Biscuits.

[REPEAT CHORUS]
Wakin’ up to You & Ham, Jam n’Biscuits.
