Beerholder

Written By: John Landry & Jason McCoy

Well I’ve been a Bartender, since 1986,
And I’ve seen cupid shoot his tiny little arrows,
With alcohol poisoned tips,
And the rules are the same in this neon dating game,
From New York, to L.A. to Boulder,
The beauty’s in the eye of the beerholder,

She was sitting at the bar nursin’ a broken heart,
With big hair & acid-washed denim,
He was buying her rounds, she was shootin’ ‘em down,
Fillin’ up on that Budweiser venom,
His teeth needed whitenin, he was grease without the lightin’,
But to her he looked like John Travolta,
I guess the beauty’s in the eye of the beerholder,

A few long necks, will make an ordinary redneck,
Look like quite a prize,
And you will find that love is blind,
When you’re looking through bloodshot eyes,
And when it’s last call for alcohol,
And that night starts to get a little colder,
Well the beauty’s in the eye of the beerholder,

He had two left feet and she couldn’t keep a beat,
But neither seemed to notice or care,
They were cuttin’ a rug and splitting a jug,
A Hillbilly Rogers & Estaire,
He usually like them a little taller, with hips a little smaller,
She likes ‘em smarter and richer, and sometimes just a little older,
Oh but the beauty is in the eye of the beerholder,

A few long necks, will make an ordinary redneck,
Look like quite a prize,
And you will find that love is blind,
When you’re looking through bloodshot eyes,
And when it’s last call for alcohol,
And that night starts to get a little colder,
Well the beauty’s in the eye of the beerholder,

Someday

Written By: John Landry & Julian Austin

I watched the sun come up as she drove away,
I lit a cigarette and cursed her name,
Standing in the middle of nowhere with nowhere to go,
Just a suitcase filled with memories of a lonesome road,

Now I was two days south of Memphis with my thumb in the wind,
When this old cat in a beat-up Dodge, said “Boy jump in,”
Without saying a word I knew I’d found a kindred soul,
And three days later we crossed into Mexico,

Oh I just laugh sometimes,
Riding on this Merry-go-Round,
Oh ain’t it funny how life,
Will pick you up and knock you down,
But I know that someday, my day will come around,

Now I can’t rightly tell you how I ended up here,
Could’ve been the straight Tequila, could have been the beer,
I’m not saying it ain’t been all my fault,
But I woke up in some jail, staring at the wall,

Oh I just laugh sometimes,
Riding on this Merry-go-Round,
Oh ain’t it funny how life,
Will pick you up and knock you down,
But I know that someday, my day will come around,

It’s time I was moving on,
there’s really nothing holding me here,
Sometimes you gotta risk it all,
Sometimes you throw it away,
Leave it all in the rearview mirror,

I watched the sun go down in a cinnamon sky,
Laying on a beach watchin’ the world go by,
There’s an angel and a devil perched up on my shoulder,
But I ain’t listened to them since hell froze over,

Oh I just laugh sometimes,
Riding on this Merry-go-Round,
Oh ain’t it funny how life,
Will pick you up and knock you down,
But I know that someday, my day will come around.

She Comes To Me

Written By: John Landry, Tim Louis

She Comes To Me

There’s a million little reasons, I can’t make it on my own,
Every day’s a little harder, and a man ain’t made of stone,
But when it all comes crashin’ down, she comes to me,

I’m livin’ on the edge of reason, and at the end of everyday,
I’m a thousand miles from nowhere, and headed the wrong way,
And when it feels I might be break, she comes to me,

I close my eyes, and I know that I’m not alone,
I feel her touch softer than I’ve ever known,

And she won’t let go, when I feel like I’m falling,
And oh, I know, I know like the setting sun on the horizon,
Melting in the arms of a waiting sea, she comes to me,

No need for looking back, she’s standing by my side,
To catch me when I stumble and ease my worried mind,
And oh she turns the tides, she comes to me,

Solo

When I close my eyes, and I know that I’m not alone,
I feel her touch softer than I’ve ever known,

And she won’t let go, when I feel like I’m falling,
And oh, I know, I know like the setting sun on the horizon,
Melting in the arms of a waiting sea, she comes to me,

Ooo Ooh she comes to me.
