Lyrics

Come and Get It Six String

Written By: Ken Pell, Jr.

Sittin' on a tall stool drinkin' number seven
Hopin' I can find Miss Right before eleven
Thinkin to myself that the pickin's are slim
In this cross town honky tonk bar that I’m in

Starin' at the waitress cleanin' off the tables
Checkin' out the football scores up on the cable
About to pay my tab and head for the car
When a drop dead blonde hits the stage picking nasty blues guitar

CHORUS:

She plays a come and get it six string
Cuts straight through my soul she makes my heart sing
Electric call of the wild staring back at me
As she plays her come and get it six string

When I hear her play those songs
I just can't help it, I have to scream along
She's gotta rockin' beat I can't deny
Makes me wanna jump up, makes me wanna try

Dancin' on the ceiling and floppin' on the floor
Waiting for the next riff to show me to the door
Her voice was made for wailin', her body made for sin
The girl was born for playin', here she goes again

CHORUS

Moving to the edge of the stage I give her a wink and smile
She licks her lips and blows me a kiss, think I'm gonna stay awhile

CHORUS

First Day Alone

Written By: Ken Pell, Jr.

Breakfast too early, long before dawn
I've been tossing and turning since two
Plug in the coffee, turn on the TV
Listen to what's on the news

Open the paper, look at the weather
Rainy and cold comin' through
I should have expected that's what I'd get
My first day alone without you

CHORUS:

My first day alone I'm out here all on my own
In this empty house that we once called a home
Surrounded by memories of a love that moved on
I just never planned for a first day alone

I pick up the kitchen, take a quick shower
Wash and dry all of my clothes
Try to keep busy ignoring the silence
Maybe time won't pass so slow

Just then it hits me, my work is finished
There's nothing else left to do
Sixteen more hours is all that is left in
My first day alone without you

CHORUS

I could go out for groceries, but I'm afraid I'd get home
Only to find that nothing's changed and see that you're still gone

CHORUS

Take It Slow

Written By: Ken Pell, Jr.

You and me, seem to be, moving forward way too fast
Pressuring, everything, but my heart wants this to last
Let's think for a moment, where are we going
Rushing to passion and love without knowing
If we are ready, or still preparing
To understand these emotions we're sharing

CHORUS:

Let's take it slow
We were born to be together I know
Baby what's the hurry
Let's take it slow

Starting out, we'll talk about, hopes and dreams and who we are
Holding hands, on the sand, wishing on the same falling star
Take in a movie, old fashioned romance
Miniature golf or a dinner and slow dance
With time and patience, soon we'll discover
We'll grow together as friends and as lovers

CHORUS

Things are so perfect I hope you can see
What will be ours eventually

CHORUS
