Lyrics

Modern Day Love Showdown

Written By: Kitty Rivers

Chorus
When love sinks faster than the setting sun
And what you do today can't be undone
Like the click of a gun with the bullet on it's way
It's a modern day version of wild west gunplay

Verse 1
He made one more fatal slip, when he was down in Mexico
At a dusty Bordertown, not very far from Laredo
He put another notch in his belt, with a dark eyed senorita
As he stood there and held his ground, he blamed it on the margaritas
His hidin' place was discovered his heart started to pound
It's another modern love showdown

Verse 2
The praire winds were blowin', when he rode back into town
On a red fiery mustang, everyone knew his background
He thought he could change her mind, whistling a different tune
But it wasn't ok with her, so she stepped out at high noon
He tried to get back up on the saddle, she just shot him down
It's another modern love showdown

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
It was over in a moment she called him out with all his lies
He had broke the law of love, so she cut him down to size
He vowed to turn his life around but he wasn't quick enough
He wasn't wanted anymore and she chose to call his bluff
The pain hit him so hard he quickly fell to the ground
It's another modern love showdown

Repeat Chorus

Tag
With the praire winds a blowin', he rode westward outta town
On a red fiery mustang, cause he didn't win this go round
Just one more foolish cowboy who now wears a frown
And so ends the story of another modern love showdown

A Gretchen Wilson Thing

Written By: Kitty Rivers

From nine ways to Sunday
I try to catch your attention
Wear clothes that are barely there
Hardly enough to mention

I've tried all the old standbys
The ones I've always done
I ask myself what would Gretchen do
To get a little one on one

Chorus
She would go to a party and then think about cheatin'
Get notice for the woman she is while out for the evenin'
Talk a little trash with somebody else's guy
Drink some hard stuff just for the night
I've gotta try somethin' new to beat on your heartstrings
Maybe it's time for me to do a Gretchen Wilson Thing

Maybe act like a redneck
Boy shock you to your senses
Push your buttons call you to bed
And knock down these fences

When it rains I'll just pour
A big glass of whiskey
It's time to pull out all the stops
And make myself a mystery

Chorus 2
I could go to a party and then think about cheatin'
Get notice for the woman I am while out for the evenin'
Talk a little trash with someone else's guy
Drink some hard stuff just for the night
I've gotta try somethin' new to beat on your heartstrings
Maybe it's time for me to do a Gretchen Wilson Thing

Musical Bridge

Repeat Chorus 2

Tag
It's about time to do a Gretchen Wilson Thing

(Spoken ***optional)
Hey Baby don't worry about my new behaviour
Just get yourself to bed

If You're Happy I'm..

Written By: Kitty Rivers

There must be a fire deep in your heart
Your burning eyes reflect a magical spark
And that gold ring on your left hand
Tells me the hour glass ran out of sand
For that one day I might get you back
I guess you found happiness at last

Chorus
If you're happy then, I'mmm........
Trying hard to put a smile on my face
But my mind takes me back to a time and a place
When love owned us and your eyes only saw me
Your happiness depends on her and mine depends apon you
Your so in love and my heart's torn in two (in a tomb)
You say that you're happy it turned out this way
Well I guess if you're happy - I'mmm...........

Her hand's in yours where mine used to go
The pain I feel strikes an emotional blow
You pull me aside and you say to me
That I should move on and try to be happy
I once was and before I walk away
If you're happy now then all I have to say

Repeat Chorus

Tag
Cause if you're happy without me I should give up on my dream
How could you marry her when it should've been me

You - you were susposed to make me happy
So if you're happy then I'm not happy
Not happy - Oh nooo
