I'm Just A Girl lyrics - Deana carter

I've traveled 'round the world in airplanes and in cars
I've tried exotic foods and smoked some fine cigars

I'm just a girl, an American girl
I'm just a girl, but I'm not an ordinary girl
I'm a Chevy girl

I've strolled down Paris streets, been lost in London fog
But all I really need are the fields of Arkansas

I'm just a girl, an American girl
I'm just a girl, but I'm not an ordinary girl
I need an old Corvette with the top down
And a backseat for my friends
I need baseball and apple pie to feel alive
Gimme a Coke-a-cola sundae and a Beach Boy's serenade
I need freedom to be all around the world

I'm a Southern girl
I want an old porch swing under Montana skies
To hold a working man, looking good in his old Levi's

I'm just a girl, an American girl
I'm just a girl, but I'm not an ordinary girl
I need an old Corvette with the top down
And a backseat for my friends
I need baseball and apple pie to feel alive
Gimme a Coke-a-cola sundae and a Beach Boy's serenade
I need freedom to be all around the world

I'm daddy's girl
I've traveled 'round this world and I'm ready to go home

There's No Limit lyrics - Deana Carter

If it's a long, long road, baby, I'll walk it.
If it's a mountain high, baby, I'll cross it.
If it's a deep blue sky, you know, I'll jump out in it.
There's nothin' I would not do for you, there's no limit.

If you want my heart, you can have it.
If you want my soul, you gotta grab it.
If you want my love, then, baby, come an' get it.
There's nothin' I would not do for you, there's no limit.

Let's pack that pony up and say goodbye to Hollywood.
Climb in to the back an' just get on with feelin' good.

[Instrumental break]

Let's pack that pony up and bid goodbye to Hollywood.
Slide into the back, there's nothin' wrong with feelin' good.
Feelin' good.

If it's a beat up heart, I'll mend it.
If it's broken smile, I'll bend it.
If it's a barbed wire fence, you know I'll take my chances.
There's nothin' I would not do,
'Causem, honey, you're livin' proof,
There's no limit.
Mm-mm-mm.

(It's a long, long road.) You can have it.
(It's mountain high.) You gotta grab it.
(It's a deep blue sky.) Take your chances.
Oo-oo-oo.
(It's a long, long road.)
(There's no limit.)
There's no limit.
(There's no limit.)
(There's no limit.)
(There's no limit.)

You And Tequila lyrics - Deana Carter

Here I am again, kicking dust in the canyon wind
Waiting for the sun to go down
Made it up Mulholland Drive, hell-bent on getting high
High above the lights of town

You and tequila make me crazy
You run like poison in my blood
One more night might kill me, baby
One is one too many, and one more is never enough

For 30 days and 30 nights, I've been putting up a real good fight
There were times I thought you'd win
It isn't easy to forget the bitter taste morning left
I swore I wouldn't go back there again

You and tequila make me crazy
You run like poison in my blood
One more night might kill me, baby
One is one too many, and one more is never enough

When it comes to you, oh the damage I could do
It's always your favorite sings that do you in

You and tequila make me crazy
You run like poison in my blood
One more night might kill me, baby
One is one too many, and one more is never enough

Me And The Radio lyrics - Deana Carter


I'm headed out of town and man I feel like crying
Snow is on the ground and everything is dying
I'll come back alive, when I cross 65

I need a song to help me along
I've got my Mustang pointed west
I'm going where the sun don't set
I'm on a roll, just me and the radio
Playing "Refugee" and "Born To Run"
And all those Allman Brother's songs
The wheels turn slow while I ride this road
Just me and the radio

2nd Avenue is twinkling behind me
Memories of you do their best to blind me
The river's rolling by, well baby, so am I

I need a song to help me along
I've got my Mustang pointed west
I'm going where the sun don't set
I'm on a roll, just me and the radio
Playing "Midnight Rider," "Ramblin' Man"
Words this woman understands
The wheels turn slow while I ride this road
Just me and the radio

Turn that sweet emotion on 'cause I just heard "Already Gone"
The wheels turn slow while I ride this road
Just me and the radio
Me and the radio

Cover Of A Magazine lyrics - Deana Carter

Man, look at that rack
Right next to the popcorn and the battery packs
Am I supposed to be skinny or fat?
Hmmm?
Sometimes I get so depressed
Am I supposed to wears pants or a see-through dress
My friends say that I've become obessed
Hmmm?

I wanna be on the cover of a magazine
I wanna be on the cover of a magazine
Hair piled high, tons of diamonds
It all looks good to me

How come it's such a big deal
It's about how you look and not how you feel
All I know is I wanna wear those heels
Yeah
Every day, everywhere you look
For $2.99 you get to sink your hooks
In the lives of heroes, in the lives of crooks
It's all good

I wanna be on the cover of a magazine
I wanna be on the cover of a magazine
Hair piled high, tons of diamonds
It all looks good to me

I'm gonna wear a little pillbox hat
I'll be showing you this, I'll be showing you that
I finally get to be the homecoming queen
My mom and dad will be so proud of me

I wanna be on the cover of a magazine
I wanna be on the cover of a magazine
Hair piled high, tons of diamonds
It all looks good to me

Wildflower lyrics - Deana Carter

I wanna run against the wind
I wanna pull the stars down from the sky
And put 'em back again
I wanna hold the world in my hands
I wanna see forever from where I stand

I'm a wildflower
With my roots down an old dirt road
I'm a wildflower
And I need a little rain to grow
A little sun to help my colors show
I'm a wildflower

I wanna jump every fence
I want a taste of freedom and hold on to my innocence
I wanna fly above the trees
And ride this feeling all the way to the sea

I'm a wildflower
With my roots down an old dirt road
I'm a wildflower
And I need a little rain to grow
A little sun to help my colors show
I'm a wildflower

Twice As Worth It lyrics - Deana Carter

We're on shaky ground, but it's too late now
I ain't backing out, I don't give up that easy
You're not an easy man for me to understand sometimes
No matter how hard I try
You just shut me out and you act so proud
Always walking 'round with the world on your shoulders
But when you open up, I see so much love inside
And that's when I find, that it's

Twice as worth it
I know you've got just what I need
No, you ain't perfect for me
And it's gonne be
Twice as worth it

Slide on over here, let me feel you near
Say things in my ear, make love to me sweetly
C'mon and take my hand and be my man tonight
Only you can prove me right, that it's

Twice as worth it
I know you've got just what I need
No, you ain't perfect for me
And it's gonne be
Twice as worth it

Eddie lyrics - Deana Carter

Eddie's got a way of looking at the world through rose-colored glasses
He's got a little of the Midas touch when it comes to mystery
Never ever gonna show his cards, that's just the way things are
And I won't let go of Eddie for anything
I met him at the 76 on my way to California
I was paying for my lottery ticket and a can of ice-cold beer
He was out of cigarettes, now we're calling off all bets
And I won't let go of Eddie for anything
I've got this feeling
I've got a real good feeling
Eddie's gonna get that jog in South Calabasas
We'll skinny dip in Silver Lake and make love all afternoon
We might have to share one car, but that's just the way things are
And I won't let go of Eddie for anything
No, I won't let go of Eddie

Waiting lyrics - Deana Carter (duet with Dwight Yoakam)

Waiting for your world to turn around is less likely to be found
As I watch it moving past
Than any other hope that I might hold that someday you
Might know what it's like to slowly drown
Waiting for your world to turn around
Waiting for the the thought to cross your mind that 2 hearts might
Be inclined to commit an act that's bold
Or even just be looking for a chance to take advantage of
One glance and live inside it one more time
Waiting for the thought to cross your mind
How long will it be
'Til these blind eyes can finally see
I don't know, time goes so slow
While your love, like a river, flows right by me
Waiting for your world to turn around is less likely to be found
As I watch it moving past
Than any other hope that I might hold that someday you
Might know what it's like to slowly drown
Waiting for your world to turn around

Liar lyrics - Deana Carter

You promised me that I'd be
The only one you'd ever love
And all of our dreams would come true
And I could always count on you

Liar, cheater
I bet you break more hearts than anyone
Loser, leaver
Sometimes I think you do it just for fun
Liar

You said the stars were all ours
And that heaven's just a kiss away
And when we were old you would hole me
And love me 'til our dying day

Liar, cheater
I bet you break more hearts than anyone
Loser, leaver
Sometimes I think you do it just for fun
Liar

Love's gonna get you back someday
Love's gonna get you hey, hey, hey
Love's gonna be the price you pay

Liar, cheater
I bet you break more hearts than anyone
Loser, leaver
Sometimes I think you do it just for fun
Liar

Goodbye Train lyrics - Deana Carter

I took your picture off the shelf
Sat down and had myself a good cry
Wrote your number on a bathroom wall
Let somebody else take the fall this time (it's a long way down)
'Cause you wouldn't know a good thing
If it knocked you down, well that ain't my problem now

'Cause I like the way it feels
When I'm making tracks, I'm shooting for the moon
With the sky underneath my wheels
I'm riding on a goodbye train

I'd be better off to try my luck
With somebody who's strong enough to love me (yeah, yeah)
When I look at what I left behind
Freedom looks like a friends of mine, baby (baby)
Ain't nothing like a good change
And it's coming around, yeah
I'm coming around

'Cause I like the way it feels
When I'm making tracks, I'm shooting for the moon
With the sky underneath my wheels
I'm riding on a goodbye train

Girls' Night lyrics - Deana Carter

I'm going downtown, I'm gonna look real nice
I'll be sportin' my stilletos; I'm gonna cause a few fights
I'm gonna find my friends
'Cause it's girls' night

Julie looks like she just woke up
She pours her Miller Lite in a silver cup
She's got 2 kids and a real good man
But she can't say that she'd do it again
She can't complain
She's just blowin' off steam
Come to girls' night and you'll see what I mean

I'm going downtown, I'm gonna look real nice
I'll be sportin' my stilletos; I'm gonna cause a few fights
I'm gonna find my friends
'Cause it's girls' night

Jenny drives a truck from Kansas State
We're on time, she always late
Can't let go of her lumberjack
Got his name tattooed across her back
She's a real hot momma who's long and lean
Come to girls' night and you'll see what I mean

I'm going downtown, I'm gonna look real nice
I'll be sportin' my stilletos; I'm gonna cause a few fights
I'm gonna find my friends
'Cause it's girls' night

Kasya's got a full-time job
Pushing pills and cotton swabs
Love's a boy who won't commit
She needs her own little first-aid kit
Her skirt is short and her eyes are green

Denise is selling stocks and bonds
Gonna retire in the Caribbean
Bought her boyfriend a brand new car
Gets the first round at our favorite bar
She's got 52 pairs of designer jeans

I'm going downtown, I'm gonna look real nice
I'll be sportin' my stilletos; I'm gonna cause a few fights
I'm gonna find my friends
'Cause it's girls' night

Crying lyrics - Deana Carter

I was all right for awhile
I could smile for awhile
But I saw you last night
You held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say, "Hello"

Oh, you wished me well
You, you couldn't tell
That I'd been crying over you
Crying over you

When you said, "So long"
Left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying
Crying, crying

It's hard to understand
But the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you
But it's true, so true
I love you even more
Than I did before

But, darling, what can I do?
For you don't love me
And I'll always be crying over you
Crying over you

Yes, now you're gone
And from this moment on
I'll be crying, crying
Crying, crying
Yeah, crying, crying
Over you

Help Me Make It Through The Night lyrics - Deana Carter (with Kris Kristofferson)

Take the ribbon from my hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Layin' soft upon your skin
Like the shadows on the wall

Come and lay down by my side
Till the early mornin' light
All I'm takin' is your time
Help me make it through the night

I don't care what's right or wrong
I don't try to understand
Let the devil take tomorrow
'Cause tonight I need a friend

But yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
And it's sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

I don't care what's right or wrong
I don't try to understand
Let the devil take tomorrow
'Cause tonight I need a friend

'Cause yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
And it's sad to be alone
Help me make it through the night

I don't wanna be alone
Help me make it through the night

Love Is Like A Butterfly lyrics - Deana Carter (with Dolly Parton)

Love is like a butterfly
As soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing

I feel it when you're with me
It happens when you kiss me
That rare and gentle feeling that I feel inside
Your touch is soft and gentle
Your kiss is warm and tender
Whenever I am with you I think of butterflies

Love is like a butterfly
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing

Your laughter brings me sunshine
Everyday is spring time
And I am only happy when you are by my side
How precious is this love we share
How very precious, sweet and rare
Together we belong like daffodils and butterflies

Love is like a butterfly
As soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing

Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing

The Boxer lyrics - Deana Carter (with Harper Simon and Paul Simon)

I am just a poor boy
Though my story is seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises

All lies and jest
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest

When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station, runnin' scared

Layin' low, seekin' out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Lookin' for the places, only they would know

Lie-la-lie

Asking only workman's wages
I come lookin' for a job
But I get no offers, just a come on
From the whores on Seventh Avenue

I do declare there were times
When I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Lie-la-lie

And I'm layin' out my winter clothes
And wishin' I was gone, goin' home
Where the New York City winters aren't bleedin' me
Leadin' me home, goin' home

In the clearing stands
A boxer and a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of every glove that laid him down

Or cut him 'til he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leavin', I am leavin'"
But the fighter still remains, still remains

Lie-la-lie

Lay Lady Lay lyrics - Deana Carter

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Whatever colors you have in your mind
I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
And you're the best thing that he's ever seen

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
Why wait any longer for your world to begin
You can have your cake and eat it too
Why wait any longer for the one you love
When he's standing in front of you

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
I long to see you in the morning light
I long to reach for you in the night
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead

The Weight lyrics - Deana Carter

I pulled into Nazareth just a feelin' 'bout a half past dead
I just need to find a place where I can lay my head
Mister can you tell me where a man might find a bed?
He just grinned and shook my hand and "No" was all he said

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me

I picked up my bag and went lookin' for a place to hide
When I saw old Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side
And I said, "Hey Carmen, come on will you go downtown?"
She said, "Well I gotta go but my friend can stick around anyhow"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me

Go down Miss Moses, ain't nothin' that you can say
'Cause is just old Luke and Luke's waitin' on the judgment day
Well now Luke my friend, what about young Anna Lee?
He said, "Do me a favor son
Won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company?"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me

Crazy Chester followed me yeah, and he caught me in the fog
He said, "I would fix your rack, oh yeah if you'll just take Jack, my dog"
I said, "Wait a minute, Chester, you know I am a peaceful man"
He said, "That's okay, boy, won't you feed him when you can?"

Won't ya take a load off Fanny?
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me

Catch a cannon ball now, to take me down the line
'Cause my bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time
To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone

I want you to take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me
