Hummingbird hummingbird show me where to go Point me in the right way, put me on the right road I’ve got a golden horseshoe over my head I’ve got a couple of dream catchers hanging off of my bed I’m lucky yeah I’m lucky I’ve got a gang of angles hanging out around me Looking out for trouble and helping me breathe Some folks call it work, some folks call it play I’m just singing for my super everyday I’m lucky yeah I’m lucky I’ve got a man who loves me with everything he has I’ve got a pretty cool mama, I’ve got a pretty cool dad Fairy godmothers and spirits in my head Sons I never asked for and daughters I’ve never had I’m lucky yeah I’m lucky

I never even dreamed of you Dreams like that don’t usually come true Now I’m here and I’m lookin’ you in the eye Thinking I don’t deserve this hell I’m lucky to even be alive Love me like you ain’t got anything else to do Love me like you ain’t got anything else to do I never knew I needed anything like you Now that you’re here if you were gone I don’t know what I would do Wake me up with your kisses and sing me to sleep I guess you don’t need much when you’ve got everything Love me like you ain’t got anything else to do Love me like you ain’t got anything else to do I don’t know how I ended up in this place Must be on the right path at the right time in the right space I found out what is good for me, I’ve been down, I have dug deep I have met my match now I know peace Love me like you ain’t got anything else to do Love me like you ain’t got anything else to do

My daddy made me and my mama gave me life One is straight as an arrow, one is sharp as a knife And I grew up tall and I grew up strong I grew up just to prove them all wrong There’s a porch swing in Stevens county There’s a little girls still lying in your arms There’s a piece of my heart that still haunts those halls And I can’t tear the two apart I’m one of the lucky ones I wake up with the sun And I do anything I want to do But I would give it all away If I could just have one more day On a porch swing in Stevens county There’s a little girls still lying in your arms There’s a piece of my heart that still haunts those halls And I can’t tear the two apart Bring me peaches in the morning and I’ll eat them in the sun Make the best of what I have before this day is done Things are pretty good right now but they were better way back when Swinging by your side watching the summer storms coming in I was small and the family was fine, way back then when the world was mine We had a porch swing in Stevens county Just a little girls still lying in your arms There’s a piece of my heart that still haunts those halls And I can’t tear the two apart

I don’t fuss about the rain anymore It’s just the new normal I guess Kick off my boots and shake my coat at the door And I’m grateful to be met with a kiss What a sight you are Such a sight to see Hello darlin’ where you been all this time Singing songs to the sunlight and the honeysuckle vines Hello darlin’ where you been all my life I’ve been waiting for you for so long I don’t fuss about the grey anymore I think on your yellow and blue And all the color that you bring to my world And how it changes to fit your mood What a sight you are Such a sight to see Hello darlin’ where you been all this time Singing songs to the sunlight and the honeysuckle vines Hello darlin’ where you been all my life I’ve been waiting for you for so long I don’t mind being alone anymore I know you’ll be coming home soon Brush your shoulders and leave your boots by the door And I’ll be here waiting for you

I’m gonna nail myself inside of this room So I don’t have to talk to you I’m gonna hammer the door to the jam And wash my hands, wash my hands, wash my hands You’ve been speaking your own language but no ones speaking mine Sliding notes and food under the door but I won’t bite My soul is hungry for nothing you can make If you wanna fix me something fix this heartache I’d rather wait around and drink until I die Than walk back through that door again Got a ten dollar bottle to shut you out Ten penny nail to shut me in I’ve been listening to the sound of the pounding in my head Drowning out the words you have to say I’ve been hollering and screaming, exercising demons You are playing games I don’t know how to play I’d rather wait around and drink until I die Than walk back through that door again Got a ten dollar bottle to shut you out Ten penny nail to shut me in

I need a softer touch. I’m too damn rough with stuff I’m always breaking down but never given up I’ve got a silver spoon I don’t know what to do I’ve been kissed by an angel who was living the blues All I got It don’t mean nothin’ If I don’t know who I am All I got don’t mean nothing If I can’t be a better man I paid my share of dues Walked a mile in another mans shoes I have given like I’ve got nothing to lose I’ve heard the ocean roar While it pushed my boat to shore I’ve been the growing tree and the mountain you can’t move All I got It don’t mean nothin’ If I don’t know who I am All I got don’t mean nothing If I can’t be a better man All the fire in hell, well it couldn’t stop me Now I’m here in this big city motel and I’m feeling pretty weak All I got It don’t mean nothin’ If I don’t know who I am All I got don’t mean nothing If I can’t be a better man

I like the city but not as much as Tulsa This green country livin’ calls my name I know someday I will leave here As for now it is Tulsa all the same I like tequila but not as much as whiskey It warms me up and goes down smooth Maybe someday I’ll wait my drinking But let’s be real that ain’t gonna happen soon I like to dance just not in those fancy clothes But I’ll help you two step through the night Cause my mama taught me real young And my daddy he raised me up just right I mighty liked the city but then I met a cowboy I guess he treated me just fine He says he’s leaving me for Nashville I said hey have fun waiting in line I like the city but not as much as Tulsa This green country livin’ calls my name I know someday I will leave here As for now it is Tulsa all the same

I like whiskey, I like wine I love your lovin’ most of the time I like the daybreak when I ain’t been to sleep I like you most of all when I ain’t seen you in weeks Hold on tight It’s gonna be a wild ride I won’t let go if you won’t let go too Hold on tight It’s gonna be a wild ride I won’t let go if you won’t let go too I can be unruly, I can be mean I can be the sweetest thing I’m like a flower, if you don’t give me what I need I won’t bloom and I’ll just hang out with weeds Hold on tight It’s gonna be a wild ride I won’t let go if you won’t let go too Hold on tight It’s gonna be a wild ride I won’t let go if you won’t let go too Hold my ankles so I don’t float away Tell me all the things I need you to say I was born in June under a Virgo moon I can laugh and cry at the same time I can be hard to handle, I can have a heart of gold Stick with me and I’ll show you my world

I was born where the sugar beets grow Up in a mountain down a dirt road Well I married six times but none of them took Never praised the lord never read the good book Now I lived in the coop while I built the farm Got knocked up had to raise a boy on my own on my own I do all the heavy lifting on my own on my own on my own I do all the heavy lifting on my own Up on my pony out to the pond Got a twenty two Remington and my son Surrounded by snakes ooooo the rattling kind Anyone else would have lost their mind Ran out of bullets so I grabbed my knife Had to sling my blade to save my life Burns on my face and blisters on my feet From fighting off snakes in the summer heat Got back home and hung em on a line Left them there in the sun to dry Before you know it I’ll be out on the town The best dressed woman in a snakeskin gown Killed 140 without a scratch Don’t you know I made shoes to match I raise goats to cover up the smell Of the air coming off that moonshine still Go out looking for ducks hunters left behind Food on the table and peace of mind I sell venom to science and rattles for a dollar Making ends meet as a single mother I did what I done so I could survive Raise my kid, live my life Now I’m famous they all know my name They say hey there Katie how’d you kill those snakes On my own on my own I do all the heavy lifting on my own

She arrives in all her splendor Each night at nine o'clock Her chariot is the crosstown bus That stops right down the block Now the old piano minstrel plays her tune as she walks in And the Queen of the Silver Dollar's home again She's the Queen of the Silver Dollar She rules this smokey kingdom Scepter is a wine glass and a bar stool is her throne Now the jesters flock around her tryin' to win her favors To see which one will take the Queen of the Silver Dollar home Now her royal dress is satin It's tattered and it's torn The royal jewels are rhinestones The shoes are scuffed and worn Of the many roads she's been down, And the places that she's seen They all look at her and say God save the queen She's the Queen of the Silver Dollar She rules this smokey kingdom Scepter is a wine glass and a bar stool is her throne Now the jesters flock around her tryin' to win her favors To see which one will take the Queen of the Silver Dollar home Now the Queen of the Silver Dollar Is not as haughty as she seems She was once an ordinary girl with ordinary dreams But there's a man who found her And he brought her to this world He's the one who made a queen of a simple country girl Yes I'm the Queen of the Silver Dollar I rule this smokey kingdom Scepter is a wine glass and a bar stool is my throne Now the jesters flock around me tryin' to win my favors To see which one will take the Queen of the Silver Dollar home
