People Know You By Your First Name Lyrics – Dean Brody

It's a town just outside of nowhere
with a general store and one lamp pole
we got wheat fields saw mills and coal mines
down home country folks

raised on 4H and dance hall acutions
spaghetti dinners and parkin lot fights,
ohh we might be a little bit backwoods
but `round here that's alright

[Chorus:]
where people know you by your first name
what kinda truck you drive
how your team did back in high school
so you can't lie
better watch out who you take home
`cause `round here its a fact of life
that people know you by your first name
and what you did last night

so c'mon down to our fund raiser dinner it'll be a highschool reunion I swear
another family fallin' on hard times
so there won't be an empty chair

listen close and you'll hear a local legend
[?] and that twelve point rack
oh and you thought you were alone skinny dippin in the springs last night
word here travels fast

[Chorus:]
where people know you by your first name what kinda truck you drive
how your team did back in highschool
so can't lie
better watch out who you take home
`cause `round here it's a fact of life

[Chorus:]
where people know you by your first name what kinda truck you drive
how your team did back in highschool
so can't lie
better watch out who you take home
`cause `round here it's a fact of life
that people know you by your first name
and what you did last night

yeah people know you by your first name
and what you did last night

Roll That Barrel Out Lyrics – Dean Brody

We say Deo, Deo, Deo
Roll that barrel out
We say Deo, Deo
Twist the tap and pass it around

He owns a Graddel by banyan tree
And old Jamacia called the ocean breeze
His face is kind as it is creased
From tossin nets off an old boat bow.
But all Jamal is a mariners son
Will tell you where the ships would run
And if your down there askin to pour ya one
And you'll hear that sailor shout

[Chorus]
He'll say Deo, Deo, Deo
Roll that barrel out
He'll say Deo Deo
Twist the tap and pass it around

His mama told him when he was young
you work the fields till you grow up
while she tapped the barrels and the cantina
the soldier boys passing by

His big brown eyes and little feet
For years they were at the coco bean
But he'd have visions of pirates when he would fall asleep
And they sang him this lullaby,

[Chorus]
He'll say Deo, Deo, Deo
Roll that barrel out
He'll say Deo Deo
Twist the tap and pass it around
Hey hey!

We met Jamal when we arrived
He told a story round a fire last night,
You shoulda seen that beach come alive
When he sang his island song
Yeah and we all sang along

[Chorus]
We'll say Deo, Deo, Deo
Roll that barrel out
We'll say Deo Deo
Twist the tap and pass it around
Twist the tap and pass it around
Twist the tap and pass it around

Little Yellow Blanket Lyrics – Dean Brody

Hoppers on a dirt road, pollen in the air
Farmers in the orchard ,on ladders pickin' pears
Me and you drivin' Grandma's Cadillac
Gonna have a picnic on a yellow blanket in the meadow out back

[Chorus]
Honey bees, a little lady bug
Squirrel behind a tree hangin' out with us
Gonna drink your sweet tea and a little cherry pie
On a little yellow blanket just you and I

Baby let me hold you, underneath a tree
We can sing some medley, strum a couple strings
You can have a dip, from my newest cold can
Chase you through the holler down into the creek where we can take a bath

[Chorus]
Honey bees a little lady bug
Squirrel behind a tree hangin' out with us
Gonna drink your sweet tea and a little cherry pie
On a little yellow blanket just you and I

So many things the two of us could do
With that little yellow blanket if we wanted to

[Chorus]
Honey bees a little lady bug
Squirrel behind a tree hangin' out with us
Gonna drink a sweet tea and a little cherry pie
On a little yellow blanket just you and I
On a little yellow blanket just you and I

Angelina Lyrics – Dean Brody

Casperella Island, You were working at the boat house
Started just for fun but we wound up gettin kinda serious
Now summers come and leavin baby and taking you with it
The trunk of your car and bottle chimes clanking in the wind
So I’ll spill my heart one last time on this old guitar

[Chorus:]
Angelina, I’m gonna miss your sun kissed face
Freckle smile, soft eyes and your daisy chains, how you made my world come undone
Angelina, maybe you’ll be back again someday
If what you left behind was really love
Yeah oooo Angelina, Yeah

Take my memory with you, how I held you on the old pier
lanterns on the water your head on my chest bon fires in the salt air
its cold in Chicago baby and you just can’t get warm enough
I’ve been fishing down on ocean road hoping you might show up
cause you’ll know where to go when you get that ache in your soul
Yeah you will

[Chorus:]

Oooo Angelina Yeah

Trail In Life Lyrics – Dean Brody

It was a May full moon
We parked the car
And I sang you a song I wrote on my guitar
Oh I have kissed
Many times since then
But that first one is special
One you don't forget
If I had asked you then you probably took my ring
But time and distance have a way
Of changing things

And sometimes I wonder
What it would have been like
If we had wandered
The same path in life
Tonight if you're out there
Looking up at the same moon
Girl I hope
That your trail in life
Has been good to you

College days
Frat house nights
You were more than just a bunch of rowdy friends of mine
You made leaving home
Not as hard to bare
Yeah we swore we'd stick together
Till we were in rocking chairs
But we all kind of scattered
Getting our lives in gear
The phone calls went from weeks to months
To I ain't heard in years

And sometimes I wonder
What it would have been like
If we had wandered
The same paths in life
Would we still smoke cigars?
Yeah when the wild cats beat OU
Oh friend I hope that your trail in life
Has been good to you

The day I was born
They said you cried
When you signed those papers
And kissed me good-bye
To young to know
How to raise me up
So you let me go and start this world in a house of love
I was 12 years old when daddy sat me down
And told me of a brave young girl
That I should know about

And sometimes I wonder
What it would have been like
If we had wondered
The same path in life
I think I would make you proud
Of the boy you never knew
God I hope
That your trail in life
Has been good to you
And some day I know
This old trail in life
Will wind back to you

Sunday Drive Lyrics – Dean Brody

Everybody needs some sun sometimes
A little Sunday drive
To light up their world of grey
So come on darlin' hop up in my truck
Lets take her for a run
Till we feel a little change

[Chorus]
We'll find a Coke machine
Roadside motel for gasoline
I'll check the oil while you laugh at me
I get crazy cause I love to see you smile
What you do to me
Is still what you did at seventeen
We made all of those memories
On a country road back in time
On a good ol' fashioned Sunday drive

Surfin' heat waves
We'll find that rusted sign
On highway 55
Broken asphalt and a dead end
ghost town drive in
Parked beneath the burned out light
Take a hammer and some ice
And I'll make you snow cones on my truck bed

[Chorus]
We'll find a Coke machine
Roadside motel for gasoline
I'll check the oil while you laugh at me
I get crazy cause I love to see you smile
What you do to me
Is still what you did at seventeen
We made all of those memories
On a country road back in time
On a good ol' fashioned Sunday drive

We'll find a Coke machine
Roadside motel for gasoline
I'll check the oil while you laugh at me
I get crazy cause I love your pretty smile
What you do to me
Is still what you did at seventeen
We made all of those memories
On a country road back in time
On a good ol' fashioned Sunday drive

Wildflower Lyrics – Dean Brody

I was living in a world without color
Like an old photograph
Flying down the road never looked
At what I might have passed

But when I met you, girl
I just had to slow down
You were beautiful but different
You turned this ol' boy around

You're a wildflower
You caught my eye at the side of the road
You're a wildflower
Girl, that's what makes you so beautiful

I love how your pretty shy smile
Can light up a room
The way that you talk, share your secrets
How your body moves

You got a way about you
That stands out in a crowd
What you think are imperfections
Are what I couldn't live without

You're a wildflower
You caught my eye at the side of the road
You're a wildflower
Girl, that's what makes you so beautiful, yeah, oh

I used to wonder
If love was out there somewhere
With all the millions of people
It was you I saw there

'Cause you're a wildflower
You caught my eye at the side of the road
You're a wildflower
Girl, that's what makes you so beautiful

Gypsy Girl Lyrics – Dean Brody

She grew up in san diego
Her body was painted by the summer sun
She rented surfboards to make her dollars
So she could drift to towns along the ocean

Well i met her one night when the black crowes played beach
She wanted to dance so she came to me
The yellow moon the drums and the white rain in her hair
I fell in love with her so deep

Gypsy girl why do you run?
Your pretty feet must be so tired
Why don't you stay a while in my arms?
Gypsy girl why are you scared of love?

You say love it hurt you
Yes it did
But it's love that could save you
If you could let it back in

She lives out of her red volkswagen
Curtains on the windows where she sleeps at night
She says boy you and me we could be ramblers
If you could learn to hold me but not too tight

Let me drive away from time to time

Gypsy girl why do you run?
Your pretty feet must be so tired
Why don't you stay a while in my arms?
Gypsy girl why are you scared of love?

You say love it hurt you
Yes it did
But it's love that could save you
If you could let it back in

Gypsy girl why do you run?
Your pretty feet must be so tired
Why don't you stay a while in my arms?
Gypsy girl why are you scared of love?

You say love it hurt you
Yes it did
But it's love that could save you
If you could let it back in

The Porch Lyrics – Dean Brody

Lately you've been in my dreams
Walking up and down these halls
You crying eyes they look at me
They say why and then your gone
And then were standing in a field
Where I hold you in my arms
It the best day of are lives
I say I love you girl then your gone
All day long I convince myself that leaving you was right
When the sun goes down and the lights go out
My dreams tell me I lied
So baby here I stand
Hand in hand on your porch
You don't have to hear me out
I just wanted you to know
All day long I convince myself that leaving you was right
When the sun goes down and the lights go out
My dreams tell me I lied
I lied
Ooooh
Ooooh
And I let you strike my face
See your tears roll like rain
And I watch you close that door
And slowly open it again
And you kiss me like you never have
Like I never made you cry
Let the sun go down and the lights go out
I will dream of you tonight
I need you baby
I love you baby
Forgive me baby

"Dean Brody" (2009)

Undone Lyrics – Dean Brody

Sittin' in the bed of my turck
Barefoot and cuddled up
Sippin' sweet tea in the settin sun
Its so hot outside
Her hairs untied and all undone.

Johnson Hill overlooks the fence
to the only drive-in left
from here to Lincholn county
A little statics alright with us
Yeah, its Friday night how
we unwind and get all undone.

Tune our dial to 1650
A coleman lantern and hot dogs grillin
Ain't no one up here but a few bull frogs
Yeah our idea of getting crazy has alot
to do with just getting lazy.
On a patch quilted blanket, we'll put
the brakes on the rush.
Yeah its Friday at night time to unwind and
get all undone.

Fog settin in, the air is so thick.
Nights like these its good to be wet.
So we might go dippin' in Miller's pond,
Yes we might.
Turn the headlights off, leave the radio on
and get all undone.

Tune our dial to 1650
A coleman lantern and hot dogs grillin'
Ain't no one up here but a few bullfrogs.
Our idea of gettin crazy has a lot to do with just gettin' lazy.
On a patch quilted blanket we'll put the
brakes on the rush.
Yeah it's Friday at night, time to unwind and get all undone.

Yeah its Friday night,
Time to unwind and get all undone.

Dirt Road Scholar Lyrics – Dean Brody

My Buddy Jake said hey its spring break so I picked him up in my truck
we rode into town and there we found a cantina and sorority bus
I started trading my lines with a tall blond hair kappa delta
She said boy what school are you from I said I'd be happy to tell ya

[CHORUS:]
I'm from the dirt road poison ivy league of campfires, guitars, and river swings
Got the good life down and if you hang around we can get a little dust on that collar
Cause I'm a genuine, certified dirt road scholar

Graduated the top of the school of hard knocks
pass the bar anytime I ain't thirsty
my country clubs exclusive to none but a fishing pole would come in handy
no you ain't really lived till you get chill bumps from a coyote cry
or fine dine till you've cooked on a mountain
lightning bugs for candle light, yeah...

[CHORUS:]
I'm from the dirt road poison ivy league of campfires, guitars, and river swings
Got the good life down and if you hang around we can get a little dust on that collar
Cause I'm a genuine, certified dirt road scholar...

I'm from the dirt road poison ivy league of campfires, guitars, and river swings
Got the good life down and if you hang around we can get a little dust on that collar
Cause I'm a genuine, Alumni certified, give you a country time, love to treat you right, wrapped in a blanket tight, sing
you to sleep at night, dirt road scholar...

Gravity Lyrics – Dean Brody

I've heard scientists,
Get confused when you ask them to define it,
Cause its a miracle,
It keeps the universe we see from ever dying,
And the stars from falling,
Though we cant see it
It must true
And its the only thing I've found, to compare our love to

Its invisible
You cant touch it
No matter where you go on earth u cant outrun it
It only exists to pull you in
Till your where your meant to be
Girl our love is alot like gravity

Its a phenominal
How I can hunger for ur touch and need ur company
And its just beautiful,
How from across a crowded a room ur eyes will follow me till our bodies meet
And when I'm not with u I feel a tug inside my heart
That's just never satisfied til I'm where you are
Its invisible you cant touch it
No matter where you go on earth u cant outrun it
It only exists to pull you in till ur where ur meant to be
Yea girl our loves a lot like gravity
Yeahhh

[guitar solo]

Its invisible
U cant touch it
No matter where u go on earth u cant outrun it
It only exist to pull u in till ur where u r meant to be
Yea girl our lvos a lot like gravity
And I'm just never satisfied till ur next to me

Lazy Days Lyrics – Dean Brody

I love the way twirl your hair
and those overalls and flip flops you wear
The way you'd smile
Waiting in your drive
Hot sunday afternoons

How you didn't mind my rusty truck
Swinging by to pick you up
I missed your sweet face
It was six long days
Since I got to hang with you

[Chorus]
And we'd throw two fly rods in the gunrack
Sweet tea biscuits on your lap
Sing to brown eyed girl on my guitar in the barn bridge shade
Where I'd number your freckles
And the times your fishing line tangled
And love on you in the meadow by round bales of hay
No, it ain't hard to remember those good ol' lazy days

And we'd stop by Ernies General store
Grab two maple walnut ice cream cones
Funny how they always seemed
to get on your nose
Yeah, when you'd ride with me

I'd cuss the moon tryin to get you back
Grind all the gears while you just laughed
Cause it was twelve o'clock
Porch lights turned off
Yeah, and I was up the creek

[Chorus]

Ain't it funny how we never could sell
that old pick up of mine
Baby grab the keys I'll get the jumper cables,
cause it's about time

[Chorus]

No, it ain't hard to remember
Baby do you remember
I think it's time we remember
Those good ol' lazy days

Brothers Lyrics – Dean Brody

The house was like a tomb.
I was hiding in my room.
As my brother made his way on down the hall.

I didn't want to say goodbye.
And I was trying to deny there was a war,
And that he got the call.

I watched him from my window
Walking down the drive.
Then I ran down the stairway
Through the front door and I cried

You come back you hear?
And I let him see my tears
I said I'll give you my rookie of DiMaggio.
I'll do anything you want,
Clean your room, or wash your car.
I'll do anything so long as you don't go.
But he said, this is what brothers are for.

Well I have my heroes,
But the one I love the most
Taught me how to hunt and swing a bat.
And I wrote him every night,
I said I miss our pillow fights,
But lately I just wonder where you're at.

Sometimes freedom makes it hard to live.
When it takes things from you that you don't want to give.

I said you come back you hear?
I miss you being near.
Laugh and fish down in the maple grove

I'll do anything you want.
There must be someone I can call,
And just maybe they would let you come back home.
But he wrote, this is what brothers are for.

I may never have to face the anger of those guns,
Or lie cold and wounded in my blood,
Or know the sacrifice and what it must of cost
For him to love me that much.

Well, it had been two years,
And I held back my tears
When I saw him in that wheel chair on the shore.

And as I ran and held him tight,
That's when he looked me in the eye
And said I'm sorry that you have to push me home.
And I said hey, this is what brothers are for.

Back In Style Lyrics – Dean Brody

Sittin' in the bed of my truck
Barefoot and cuddled up
Sippin' sweet tea in the settin' sun
It's so hot outside, her hair's untied and all undone

Johnson Hill overlooks the fence
To the only drive-in, left from here to Lincoln county
A little statics alright with us
Yeah, it's Friday night, how we unwind and get all undone

Tune our dial to 1650
A Coleman lantern and hot dogs grillin'
Ain't no one up here but a few bull frogs
Yeah, our idea of getting crazy has a lot
To do with just getting lazy

On a patch quilted blanket
We'll put the brakes on the rush
Yeah, it's Friday at night time
To unwind and get all undone

Fog settin' in, the air is so thick
Nights like these it's good to be wet
So we might go dippin' in Miller's pond
Yes, we might turn the headlights off
Leave the radio on and get all undone

Tune our dial to 1650
A Coleman lantern and hot dogs grillin'
Ain't no one up here but a few bull frogs
Yeah, our idea of getting crazy has a lot
To do with just getting lazy

On a patch quilted blanket
We'll put the brakes on the rush
Yeah, it's Friday at night time
To unwind and get all undone

Yeah, it's Friday night
Time to unwind and get all undone

Cattleman's Gun Lyrics – Dean Brody

He rode into town one dust storm,
Sheepskin cloak across his back.
A preacher man with kind old eyes,
And a mystery for a past.
He said he'd come to teach about
the love of God,
But he soon learned what they were missing there
Was justice and the law.

There was a cattleman who claimed his clan
owned all the land around.
And any brave fool who that might dispute,
He was quick to snuff 'em out.
He'd say, "Take my heed
and you won't pay the price.
'Cause honor and a name ain't worth a damn
if you don't have your life."

He'd say, "Ain't nobody faster than this cattle man's gun.
I'm a rattlesnake on the trigger.
Your last stand'll be lyin' in the sand,
Fallin' to the slam of my hammer."

So one man taught forgiveness,
While the other taught suffering.
The preacher said deliverance,
Could be found out on their knees.
He said, "I know that you want justice
And you want blood,
But believe me when I say to you,
Don't try and be that man's judge.

'Cause ain't nobody faster than that cattleman's gun,
He's a rattlesnake on the trigger,
Your last stand'll be lyin' in the sand,
Fallin' to the slam of his hammer."

One day a young farmer brought his sons to town for feed.
And he noticed that the streets were quiet, and he knew what that might mean.
The smoke rose in the distance,
His farm burned to the ground.
He let the fury overtake him,
When Cattle Man came back to town.

Those boys ran out from behind the crowd,
And watched their daddy die,
The big man laughed and said, "Now look at that.
Anybody else wanna give it a try?"
Well, the church doors opened with that black cloak flowin' behind the preacher's fiery eyes.
He said, "Your ticket to Hell is a comin' to you,
And I got a hollow-point to give you the ride."

And the only thing faster than the cattle man's gun,
Was the preacher's handy finger,
He pulled iron from his side and let that bullet fly,
Beat the rattlesnake to the hammer.

While the preacher embraced forgiveness,
Oh, they finally understood,
Under that sheepskin cloak of his,
Was a history of blood.

Up On The Moon lyrics - dean brody

My boots sure feel good on this hardwood
My beers never tasted this cold
The bands playing all of my favorite songs
And somehow I don’t feel at home
Tonight she is sure lookin’ pretty
Dressed up in her Friday night’s best
And she’s left no doubt that she’s moving on
Time says I should but I haven’t yet

I wish we could start it all over
And I was someone that she never knew
Then there wouldn’t be any distance
She’d be just ‘cross the room
But from her point of view
I might as well be up on the moon

I wish I could be just a stranger
Walk over and ask her for a dance
Then we could get lost in the music
And I’d give anything for that second chance
T o smell that perfume that I bought her
Rest my hand on the back of her dress
And be that man standing beside her
And not the one over here by himself

I wish we could start it all over
And I was someone that she never knew
Then there wouldn’t be any distance
She’d be just ‘cross the room
But from her point of view
I might as well be up on the moon

I wish we could start it all over
And I was someone that she never knew
And there wouldn’t be any distance
She’d be just ‘cross the room
But from her point of view
I might as well be up on the moon

Yeah from her point of view
I might as well be up on the moon
