The Fightin’ Side Of Me Lyrics

Merle Haggard

I hear people talkin’ bad about the way
We have to live here in this country
Harpin’ on the wars we fight
And gripin’ ’bout the way things oughta be

And I don’t mind ’em switchin’ sides
And standin’ up for things they believe in
When they’re runnin’ down my country, man
They’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

Yeah, walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me
Runnin’ down the way of life
Our fightin’ men have fought and died to keep
If you don’t love it, leave it
Let this song I’m singin’ be a warnin’
When you’re runnin’ down my country, man
You’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of meI read about some squirrely guy
Who claims, he just don’t believe in fightin’
And I wonder just how long
The rest of us can count on bein’ free

They love our milk and honey
But they preach about some other way of livin’
When they’re runnin’ down my country, hoss
They’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

Yeah, walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me
Runnin’ down the way of life
Our fightin’ men have fought and died to keep
If you don’t love it, leave it
Let this song I’m singin’ be a warnin’
When you’re runnin’ down my country, man
You’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

Yeah, walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me
Runnin’ down the way of life
Our fightin’ men have fought and died to keep
If you don’t love it, leave it
Let this song I’m singin’ be a warnin’
When you’re runnin’ down my country, man
You’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

Alan Jackson’s “If Love Was a River” – What A Great Country Music Tune!

Here’s a beautiful Alan Jackson song from his album “What I Do.” This is his twelfth studio album that was released on September 7, 2004. It produced four singles for Jackson on the Hot Country Songs charts: “Too Much of a Good Thing” and “Monday Morning Church” both reached #5, while “The Talkin’ Song Repair Blues” and “USA Today” both reached #18. The Wrights, a duo composed of Adam and Shannon Wright, are featured as background vocalists of this song “If Love Was a River,” which they also co-wrote. Enjoy!

About Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson was born in the small town of Newnan, Georgia, on October 17, 1958. He grew up singing gospel music, both in church and at home with his family, and as a teenager he performed locally as part of a country duo. He left school to work and married his high-school sweetheart, Denise, who worked as an airline stewardess. In 1989, Jackson became the first artist signed to Arista’s new country division. Jackson’s debut album, Here in the Real World, was issued in 1990 and became a platinum-selling hit on the strength of four Top Five hits: the title cut, “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,” “Wanted,” and the first of many chart-toppers, “I’d Love You All Over Again.” He shot to full-fledged superstardom with the follow-up, 1991’s Don’t Rock the Jukebox, whose title track was an inescapable number one smash that year.

If Love Was a River Lyrics

If love was a river
And I was a drowning man
Would you get in the water
Would you lend me a hand
If love was a river
Would you sit on the land

If love was a mountain
High above this town
Would you climb to the top
Would you never look down
If love was a mountain
Would you go around

Love may only knock so many times upon your door
And heaven only knows if it will come back anymore

If love was a firefly
Sitting in your hand
Would you laugh when it twinkled
Let it go again
If love was a firefly
Would you understand

If love was a party
With everyone you know
Would you dance if I asked you
Would you smile and say no
If love was a party
Would you even go

Love may only knock so many times upon your door
And heaven only knows if it will come back anymore

If love was a fast train on a one-way track
Would you turn in your ticket
Would you never look back
If love was a fast train
Would you even pack?

You Look So Good in Love Lyrics

George Strait

Oh, how you sparkle
And oh, how you shine
The flush on your cheeks
Is more than the wine

And he must do something
That I didn’t do
Whatever he’s doing
It looks good on you

You look so good in love
You want him
That’s easy to see
You look so good in love
I wish you still wanted me

He must have stolen
Some stars from the sky
And gave them to you
To wear in your eyes

I had my chances
But I set you free
And now I wonder
Why I couldn’t see

You look so good in love
You want him
That’s easy to see
You look so good in love
I wish you still wanted me

Darling I’ve wasted a lot of years not seeing the real you
But tonight your beauty is shining through
And I never took the time to let you know
So before he takes you away please let me say

You look so good in love
You want him
That’s easy to see
You look so good in love
I wish you still wanted me
You look so good in love
You want him
That’s easy to see
You look so good in love
