Alan Jackson Lyrics

 


A House With No Curtains
(written by Alan Jackson and Jim McBride)

 

We still wear our rings
We still say our "love yous"
We both play the part oh so well
But everyone knows it's just a sad show
And we're only fooling ourselves

(Chorus)
It's like living in a house with no curtains
The whole world can see what's inside
You can turn out the lights
In a house with no curtains
But heartache has nowhere to hide

We could pack up and leave
In different directions
If we just had somewhere to go
We just keep on pretending
Afraid of the ending
Admitting what everyone knows

(Repeat chorus)

You can turn out the lights
In a house with no curtains
But heartache has nowhere to hide

 


Between The Devil And Me
(written by Harley Allen and Carson Chamberlain)

 

This world can take you by the hand
And tempt the soul of any man
You can choose your path
There's two roads you can take
One way is right and one is wrong
The flesh is weak but love is strong
She's all I see between the devil and me

(Chorus)
The gates of hell swing open wide
Inviting me to step inside
I'll be your friend he calls again
I know it's him
The flames are spreading everywhere
Through the smoke I see her there
She's all I see between the devil and me

I hold her in my arm tonight
So safe and warm I close my eyes
And a cool breeze blows 'cross our bodies in the dark
Outside her reach is my concern
Somewhere I know the fire burns
She's all I see between a devil and me

(Repeat chorus)

The gates of hell swing open wide
Inviting me to step inside
She's all I see between the devil and me

 


Buicks To The Moon
(written by Alan Jackson and Jim McBride)

 

How long will I love you
I don't really know
I'd like to think forever
Is how far we could go
So let me paint a picture
Of how it's gonna be
The day you don't mean everything to me

(Chorus)
When a nickel's worth a dollar
And gold ain't worth a dime
When they build a ship on waters
That will take you back in time
When the stars have all been counted
And I stop lovin' you
Honey they'll be drivin'
Buicks to the moon

You don't have to worry
About what comes to pass
This old world may wear out
But my love's gonna last
If they ever build
That highway to the moon
I'll just find somethin' else to promise you

(Repeat chorus)

When the stars have all been counted
And I stop lovin' you
Honey they'll be drivin'
Buicks to the moon

 


Everything I love (contributed by Will Hose)
(written by Harley Allen and Carson Chamberlain)

 

Coffee keeps me up, and I can't sleep
When I drink too much then I can't eat
Losing you has led me to believe
Everything I love is killin' me

(Chorus)
Everything I love is killin' me
Cigarettes, Jack Daniels and caffiene
And that's the way you're turning out to be
Everything I love, I'm going to have to give up
'Cause everything I love is killin' me

I guess I made a big mistake
Thinkin' you're a habit I can break
I'm addicted to you now I see
Everything I love is killin' me

(Repeat chorus)

Oh, everything I love gonna have to give up
'Cause everything I love is killin' me

 


I Don't Even Know Your Name (contributed by Will Hose)

 

I was sitting in a roadhouse down on highway 41
You were wiping off some ketchup on a table that was done
I knew you didn't see me. I was in a corner booth
Of course you weren't my waitress. Mine was missing her front tooth
So I flagged you down for coffee, but I couldn't say a thing
But, "I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name."

(Chorus)
I'm in love with you baby. I don't even know your name
I've never been too good at all those sexual games
So maybe it's just better if we keep it this way
I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name

So I ordered straight Tequila, a little courage in a shot
I asked you for a date and then I asked to tie the knot
I got a little wasted, yeah I went a little far
But I finally got to hug you when you helped me to my car
The last thing I remember, I heard myself say
"I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name."

(Repeat chorus)

The next thing I remember, I was hearing wedding bells
And standing by a woman in a long white lacy veil
I raised the veil, she smiled at me
Without her left front tooth
And I said, "Where the hell am I and just
Who the hell are you?"
She said, "I was your waitress
And our last name's now the same
'Cause I'm married to ya, baby, and I don't even know your name."

I'm married to a waitress. I don't even know her name
I've never been too good at all those sexual games
I never thought my love life would quite turn out this way
Hey, I'm married to a waitress and I don't even know her name

 


Livin' On Love

 

Two young people without a thing
Say some vows and spread their wings
Settle down with just what they need
Livin' on love

She don't care 'bout what's in style
She just likes the way he smiles
It takes more than marble and tile
Livin' on love

(Chorus)
Livin' on love buyin' on time
Without somebody nothin' ain't worth a dime
Just like an old fashioned story book rhyme
Livin' on love

It sounds simple that's what you're thinkin'
But love can walk through fire without blinkin'
It doesn't take much when you get enough
Livin' on love

Two old people without a thing
Children gone but still they sing
Side by side in that front porch swing
Livin' on love

He can't see anymore
She can barely sweep the floor
Hand in hand they'll walk through the door
Just livin' on love

(Repeat chorus)

No it doesn't take much when you get enough
Livin' on love

 


Must've Had A Ball
(written by Alan Jackson)

 

(Chorus)
Well I must've had a ball last night
I can't recall what even started our fight
I must've drank away my blues
'Cause I don't remember losin' you
Well I must've done the town up right
'Cause this mornin' my hat's just a little too tight
There ain't no way of knowin'
But all the signs are showin'
I must've had a ball last night

Well I woke up this mornin' underneath my bed
And someone's in the kitchen sink
With cowboy boots on and nothin' else at all
Except my hat turned backward on her head

(Repeat chorus)

Well my picture's on the table
Somebody tore it right in two
Well who'd do such a crazy thing
Someone took your suitcase and your little car
And I hate it 'cause the tires are new

(Repeat chorus)

Well I must've done the town up right
'Cause this mornin' my hat's just a little too tight
There ain't no way of knowin'
But all the signs are showin'
I must've had a ball last night
There ain't no way of knowin'
But all the signs are showin'
I must've had a ball last night

 


Wanted (contributed by Will Hose)

 

Excuse me, ma'am, can you help me?
I'd like to place an ad with you today
No ma'am, tomorrow may be too late
I'd like to have it started right away
What's that? No, this is personal
I'm not buying or selling anything
Yes ma'am. I know just what to say
I wrote it down. This is how it should read:

(Chorus)
Wanted
One good hearted woman, to forgive imperfections
In the man that she loves
Wanted
Just one chance to tell her how much he still loves her
He can't be sorry enough

What's that? No, that's all I want to say
I just hope that these few lines will get to her
Yes, ma'am. She means everything
I hope she comes back when she reads these words

(Repeat chorus)

Wanted....

 


Who's Cheatin' Who(contributed by Will Hose)
(written by Jerry Hayes)

 

Everywhere you look you can write a book
On the trouble with a woman and a man
But you can not impose, you can't stick your nose
Into somethin' that ya don't understand

(Chorus)
But still you wonder, "Who's cheatin' who? Who's bein' true?
And who don't even care anymore?"
It makes you wonder, "Who's doin' right to someone tonight?
And who's car is parked next door?"

I thought I knew her well, I really couldn't tell
That she had another lover on her mind
You see, it felt so right when she held me tight
How could I be so blind?

(Repeat chorus)

A heart is on the line each and every time
Love is stolen in the shadows of the night
Though it's wrong all along, it keeps goin' on
As long as they keep it out of sight

(Repeat chorus three times)
