    True Believers

    Written by Darius Rucker and Josh Kear

    Church bells ringing on our wedding day
    Climbed in that limo and rode away
    Guess you'll always hear some people say
    Man, they're never going to make it

    We settled in and we settled down
    In this quiet little seaside town
    You are the rock I built my world around
    And life will never break it

    Chorus:
    We are one heartbeat in the darkness
    We are one lasting answered prayer
    We are one unbroken promise
    And we are two, true believers

    It wasn't easy getting here today
    Sometimes you stumbled or I lost my way
    But every roadblock was a chance to say
    Take my hand I'm here beside you

    We worked and made it through the toughest parts
    Now every day is another chance to start
    To look around and see where we are
    It's where we were trying to get to

    Repeat Chorus

    We are one before our God in Heaven
    Oh, we are one road when the going gets rough
    We are one now and forever
    We are one name, one life, one flame

    Miss You

    Written by Darius Rucker and Frank Rogers

    Had a bottle of wine
    And a perfectly fine dinner
    Talked about school, work, life
    And how cold it was last winter
    Laid down in this big old bed
    And you turned on the TV
    Fell asleep without a goodnight kiss
    Or even an "I Love you baby"
    Oh baby

    Chorus:
    How can we go all night
    And not even touch one another
    How can we say we're still in love
    And not be lovers
    How did we get here
    Where you can be right there
    And I can be with you
    And miss you

    I remember the time
    When every time you saw me you had to kiss me
    Oh, but lying here tonight, girl
    That all just seems like ancient history
    Oh, what happened baby

    Repeat Chorus

    Baby I still need you
    Hold and touch you
    Please say it's not the end
    Oh baby please say we're not just friends

    We can go all night
    And not even touch one another no
    Baby I'm, I'm still in love
    So let's be lovers
    You know it's not fair
    That you can be right there
    And I can be with you
    Oh, Oh and miss you
    Oh baby I, I miss you darling
    Oh I do, oh I do, laying right next to you
    I miss you girl
    Oh yeah, oh baby I miss you

    Wagon Wheel

    Written by Bob Dylan and Ketch Secor

    Heading down south to the land of the pines
    I'm thumbing my way into North Carolina
    Staring up the road and pray to God I see headlights
    I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
    Picking me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
    And I'm a-hopin' for Raleigh, I can see my baby tonight

    Chorus:
    So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
    Rock me momma any way you feel
    Hey momma rock me
    Rock me momma like the wind and the rain
    Rock me momma like a south bound train
    Hey momma rock me

    Running from the cold up in New England
    I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band
    My baby plays a guitar, I pick a banjo now
    Oh, north country winters keep a-getting me down
    Lost my money playing poker so I had to leave town
    But I ain't turning back to living that old life no more

    Repeat Chorus

    Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
    I caught a trucker out of Philly had a nice long toke
    But he's a-heading west from the Cumberland gap
    To Johnson City, Tennessee
    I gotta get a move on before the sun
    I hear my baby calling my name and I know that she's the only one
    And if I die in Raleigh at least I will die free

    So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
    Rock me momma any way you feel
    Hey momma rock me
    Oh, rock me momma like the wind and the rain
    Rock me momma like a south bound train
    Hey, hey momma rock me

    Oh, so rock me momma like a wagon wheel
    Rock me momma any way you feel (I wanna feel)
    Hey, hey momma rock me (momma rock me, momma rock me)
    Rock me momma like the wind and the rain
    Rock me momma like a south bound train
    (I wanna rock like a south bound train)
    Hey momma rock me
    Rock me

    Love Without You (feat. Sheryl Crow)

    Written by Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally

    Every friend has got a friend in mind
    'Cause I've had more than a little time
    So it's on your mark, get ready, set
    But I know my heart's not ready yet

    Chorus:
    I can walk into a room without you
    And I don't get drunk and talk about you
    So I guess I've learned to live without you
    I just don't know how to love without you

    She don't have to look just like you
    No her eyes don't have to be that blue
    It's hard to give someone a chance
    When you can't get past that second dance

    Repeat Chorus

    Sometimes the pain is dulled to numb
    And I can't believe how far I've come

    I can walk into a room without you
    (I can breathe without you)
    And I, I don't get drunk and talk about you no more, no more
    (And I can sleep without you)
    So I, I guess I've learned to live without you
    (I can be without, I can be without you)
    I just don't know how to love without you
    (I don't know how, I don't know how)
    See, see I, I had to learn to live without you
    (I had to learn to live without you)
    Oh but I just don't know how to, how to love, how to love without you
    (Oh I just don't know, how to love, how to love without you)

    Every friend has got a friend in mind
    'Cause I've had more than a little time

    Radio

    Written by Darius Rucker, Ashley Gorley and Luke Laird

    Seventeen, the only way I had a car
    Is after I dropped my Momma off where she needed to go
    It had four bald tires
    With the ceiling falling and the windows stuck
    But the only thing I cared about was the radio
    We turned it on, turned it up to 10
    And everybody would jump on in

    Chorus:
    Ridin' down the highway
    Who wants to be the DJ
    I'll find a spot on the side of the road
    You find something on the radio
    A real, real good song
    We'll know it when it comes on
    We had no money and no place to go
    All we needed was a radio

    Grabbed my girl
    We looked for somewhere to watch the stars
    A perfect place to put it park and take it slow
    She sang along
    To even the ones that she barely knew
    Still sounded good, a little louder too
    But we didn't care
    I looked at her, she looked at me
    I'll never forget that melody

    Repeat Chorus

    Hey ya'll be quiet, that's my favorite song
    Hey man, turn it up loud
    Come on, come on, come on

    Repeat Chorus

    Lost In You

    Written by Darius Rucker, Mark Nesler and Brian Phillip White

    Spring break, tan skin
    Lord I can't remember when
    I fell, so fast
    Knowing it could never last

    Chorus:
    I got lost in the rhythm of the waves of the ocean
    Lost in the sunset too
    I got lost in your eyes and the time
    Don't you know it
    Baby, I got lost in you

    Five days, four night
    A smile I will remember
    For the rest of my life
    How sweet was your kiss
    I still taste it on my lips

    Repeat Chorus

    Packed car, your tears
    I said girl I hate to leave you here
    I'll be back, I lied
    It's been all these years
    I still hear your goodbye

    Repeat Chorus

    I got lost in the rhythm of the waves of the ocean
    Lost in the sunset too, yeah
    I got lost in your eyes and the time
    Don't you know it
    Baby I got lost in you, yeah
    Baby I got lost in you
    Oh baby, I got lost in you

    I Will Love You Still (feat. Mallary Hope)

    Written by Darius Rucker and Josh Kear

    Take the key off the chain
    Leave it stuck in the door
    Don't even try to explain
    What you're leaving me for
    Cause you won't cry
    And you won't call
    And you won't even miss me at all

    But I will
    (In the middle of the night, in the middle of the day)
    Yeah I will
    (Every second you're gone, once you go away)
    I will love you still

    Take those pictures of us
    Pull 'em down off the shelf
    Go wherever you want
    Go, try to be somebody else
    'Cause you won't stay
    And you won't fight
    And you won't wonder
    Where I'm sleeping tonight

    But I will
    (In the middle of the night, in the middle of the day)
    Yeah, I will
    (Every second you're gone, once you go away)
    You know I will love you still

    I hope you never spend forever
    Wondering if he ever
    Wondering if he ever
    Wondering if you ever loved me at all

    I will
    (In the middle of the night, in the middle of the day)
    Oh, I will
    (Every second you're gone, once you go away)
    You know I will love you still
    Oh I know, I know that I will love you still
    I will love you still

    Take Me Home

    Written by Darius Rucker, Monty Criswell and Frank Rogers

    I wanna feel that ocean breeze that's got me wrapped around it's fingers
    I wanna hear a southern drawl and every word that lingers
    I need a Sunday morning song by a just got baptized singer
    I been away too long, somebody take me home

    I need a glass of sweet sun tea brewed out in the backyard
    I wanna see a kudzu vine sneaking up on a junk car
    I need to sit on my old back porch 'til the world lets go of my arm
    I been away too long, oh somebody take me home

    Lord have mercy on a poor boy's soul
    Crank it up and make these big wheels roll
    Can you get me there by the morning light
    And make everything alright
    'Cause I been away too long
    Oh somebody take me home

    I love this job, I do
    But my soul is wearing thin
    Oh I gotta get lost in where I'm from
    And find myself again
    Oh I been away too long
    Somebody take me home

    I wanna waste a day with my little man throwing me that old football
    Spend sometime with Daddy's girls catching up on what's going on
    Then remind the woman I love just how much I miss her when I'm gone

    Oh Lord have mercy on a poor boy's soul
    Crank it up and make these big wheels roll
    Can you get me there by morning light
    Oh lord have mercy on my soul
    Crank it up and make these big wheels roll
    I wanna be there by morning light
    It'll make everything alright
    Cause I've been away too long
    Oh, I've been away too long
    I been away too long
    Somebody please, somebody take me home
    Oh home, home, home

    Shine

    Written by Darius Rucker and Frank Rogers

    November '43
    On a boat comin' 'cross the sea
    He left a boy, came back a man
    She started running when she saw his face
    It'd been 655 days
    Since she held his hand
    He got down on one knee
    and pulled out that ring
    That he bought in Aberdeen
    And when it hit that New York sky

    Chorus: It shined just like a spotlight
    A star up in the night sky
    The kind of thing that takes your breath away
    Her eyes sparkled like that diamond
    With love beaming from 'em
    The kind of light that's never gonna fade
    It's gonna shine

    For the next 55 years
    Through the laughter and the tears
    My grandma always wore that band
    Through atom bombs and a baby boom
    Dr. King and a man on the moon
    No it never left her hand
    On the day she passed away
    Mama put it on a chain
    Now and then on special days
    Mom would hang it on her neck

    Chorus:
    And it would shine just like a spotlight
    A star up in the night sky
    The kind of thing that takes your breath away
    Her eyes sparkled like that diamond
    With love beaming from 'em
    The kind of light that's never gonna fade
    It's gonna shine, shine, shine
    Shine, shine, shine
    Shine, shine, shine
    Oh

    Mama said one of these days
    I'd know why she gave me that ring
    Sittin' here I know she was right
    Oh, it's not the biggest stone you've ever seen
    But girl I can promise you one thing
    The rest of your life

    It's gonna shine just like a spotlight
    A star up in the night sky
    The kind of thing that takes your breath away
    Your eyes sparkle like that diamond
    With love beaming from 'em
    The kind of light that's never, never, never gonna fade
    It's gonna shine, shine, shine
    Shine, shine, shine
    Shine, shine, shine
    Like a beacon calling me home
    It's gonna shine
    Oh yeah, shine, shine, shine
    Oh

    Your cheatin' heart
    Will make you weep
    You'll cry and cry
    And try to sleep
    But sleep won't come
    The whole night through
    Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

    And call my name
    You'll walk the floor
    The way I do
    Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

    Your cheatin' heart
    Will pine some day
    And crave the love
    You threw away
    The time will come
    When you'll be blue

    Like falling rain
    You'll toss around
    And call my name

    One Tequila

    Written by Darius Rucker, Monty Criswell and Frank Rogers

    I've been known to drink a beer or two
    And I can handle whiskey ninety proof
    I'm just fine with a glass of wine, champagne to cabernet
    But I crossed the line when I crossed the border and hang out with those aid

    Chorus:
    Cause with one tequila, it's bring on the salt and lime
    With two tequilas the whole bar's a friend of mine
    But with three tequilas my legs don't work no more
    Yeah it's one tequila, two tequila, three tequila floor

    I might end up in a Tijuana jail
    Or in a Vegas chapel lifting up a veil
    Cannonball into a neighbor's pool without a stitch of clothes
    But by the end of the night I'll be tongue tied tryin to offer some espanol

    Cause with one tequila, please pass me the salt and lime
    With two tequilas the whole bar's a friend of mine
    But with three tequilas my legs don't work no more
    Yeah it's one tequila, two tequila, three tequila floor

    I'll be glad to pour for all you senioritas.
    But I'd rather taste a salty kiss than have a sip of your margarita.

    Cause with one tequila, please pass me the salt and lime
    With two tequilas the whole world's a friend of mine
    But with three tequilas my legs won't work no more
    Yeah it's one tequila, two tequila, three tequila floor
    It's four tequila, five tequila, then six tequila door

    Somebody take me home.
    Dude you know I can't drink tequila, call me a cab.

    Only Wanna Be With You

    Written by Darius Rucker, Mark Bryan, Bob Dylan, Dean Felber and Jim Sonefeld

    You and me
    We come from different worlds
    You like to laugh at me
    When I look at other girls
    Sometimes you're crazy
    And you wonder why
    I'm such a baby
    'Cause the dolphins make me cry

    Well, there's nothing I can do
    I've been looking for a girl like you

    You look at me, you got nothing left to say
    I'm gonna pout at you until I get my way
    I won't dance, you won't sing
    I just wanna love you, but you wanna wear my ring

    Well, there's nothing I can do
    I only wanna be with you
    You can call me your fool
    I only wanna be with you

    Put on a little Dylan
    Sitting on a fence
    I say, "That line is great."
    You ask me what it meant by
    "Said I shot a man named Gray
    Took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks
    And when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky"
    I only wanna be with you
    Ain't Bobby so cool?
    I only wanna be with you

    Yeah, I'm tangled up in blue
    I only wanna be with you
    You can call me your fool
    Only wanna be with you

    Sometimes I wonder if it will ever end
    You get so mad at me when I go out with my friends
    Sometimes you're crazy
    And you wonder why
    I'm such a baby, yeah
    The dolphins make me cry

    Well, there's nothing I can do
    Only wanna be with you
    You can call me your fool
    I only wanna be with you

    Yeah, I'm tangled up in blue
    I only wanna be with you [4x]
