lyrics

I've got a date
With this D-28
and a mountain sunset sky

I ain't walking away
From this Ford tail gate
til I play her out of my mind

A melody rings
From this new set of strings
got to put this down on lines

I might start first
With a short little verse
or a hook that almost rhymes

Cause some people reach for whiskey
When their world comes undone
I won't soak my soul in that misery
And I'll never run
I'll stare stright in the eyes of a heartache
And this music keeps me strong
I'm gonna write my life
Cause life is a country song

It's mostly about
Letting it out
getting all this off my chest

There's a feeling I get
When the ink is still wet
thats when I'm at my best

Cause some people reach for whiskey
When their world comes undone
I won't soak my soul in that misery
And I'll never run
I'll stare stright in the eyes of a heartache
And this music keeps me strong
I'm gonna write my life
Cause life is a country song
