Track Name: You Had Me at Hell No
I know I'm not your type
You've said a thousand times but
I can't help if I can't get you off my mind
So how about if we hang out
And see where this will go
Because I must be honest, you had me at hell no

If I didn't know better, I'd say you looked upset
But I can tell you want me and you're playing hard to get
Your flushed complexion gives your face an angel glow
We're perfect for each other and you had me at hell no

Hell no, I see it in your eyes
Hell no, this is all just a disguise
Your angry words ringing in my ear
But it's just your sweet voice I hear
Hell no, hell no, hell no

Your words for a moment, they cut me kind of deep
But my heart still gets a thrill when you call me a creep
I know you soon will see how far our love can go
You can't deny our chemistry, you had me at hell no

Hell no, baby I'm in love with you
Hell no, pretty sure you love me too
I know we had a rocky start
But it takes more to break my heart
Hell no, hell no

We're gonna be best friends if you'll just hear me out
My love for you is strong, of that there is no doubt
I wish you wouldn't run away, it makes me feel like you're afraid
I knew this wasn't gonna be a good day
When the judge told me to stay a hundred yards away

Hell no, couldn't we have one date at least
Hell no, before you involve the police
This restraining order just won't help
For me to reinvent myself
And court dates just get in the way
We'll never find the time to date
I can't keep up this big charade
So this is all I have to say
Hell no, hell no, hell no
Track Name: I'm Trying Gin
It's my own darn fault, I fall in love too quickly
And for a time I seemed to find some comfort in some whiskey
Lately I've been waking with a pounding in my head
In place of drinking Maker's I'll try something else instead

Gonna make some changes
Try something new
I drank a lot of whiskey trying to forget you
But the whiskey didn't do it
You're where you've always been
So I'm gonna make some changes and now I'm trying gin

There's just no getting around you driving me to drink so
A change of scenery's the solution here I think
I've always liked club soda and I've always liked limes
Stay one step in front of my brain, keep up with the times

Gonna make some changes
Try something new
I drank a lot of whiskey trying to forget you
But the whiskey didn't do it
You're where you've always been
So I'm gonna make some changes and now I'm trying gin

We'll be together someday and I'm willing to wait
In the meantime I'll just sit here and self-medicate

Gonna make some changes
Try something new
I drank a lot of whiskey trying to forget you
But the whiskey didn't do it
You're where you've always been
So I'm gonna make some changes and now I'm trying gin
Track Name: There's No Place More Country Than Illinois
Thought Illinois was a city place 'til I moved out of town
Soon as you leave Chicago it's just corn the whole way down
Surprisingly the land of Lincoln's got a southern voice
There's no place more country than Illinois

We're inbred mangy country folk, of that there is no doubt
The attorney general's dad is the speaker of the house
Being someone's brother is the way you get employed
There's no place more country than Illnois

Illinois, Illinois, oh, you're my pride and joy
Where the Cubbies haven't won
Since my great-granddad was a boy
We may not have the cowboy boots
But we've sure got the down-home roots
There's no place more country than Illinois

Thought I'd have a culture shock when I moved to Tennessee
But pretty soon I realized everyone there's just like me
We've even got a Chick-fil-A, not like we had a choice
There's no place more country than Illinois

Illinois, Illinois, oh, you're my pride and joy
Where the Cubbies haven't won
Since my great-granddad was a boy
We may not have the cowboy boots
But we've sure got the down-home roots
There's no place more country than Illinois

I ain't trying to hurt no feelings
I ain't trying to raise no hell
But is there anything more country
Than two governors in jail

Illinois, Illinois, oh, you're my pride and joy
Where the Cubbies haven't won
Since my great-granddad was a boy
We may not have the cowboy boots
But we've sure got the down-home roots
There's no place more country than Illinois
Track Name: Hook, Line, and Sinker
There've been a lot of country songs about fishing
But not a lot of country songs about fish
So I thought I'd write one, 'cause I am one
At least that's how I felt when you reeled me in

You dropped your line into my peaceful waters
Turned my whole world upside down
How am I supposed to just keep swimming
With this dadgum hook stuck in my mouth

I'm a humble fish in love, can't believe this feeling's real
I'm a bluegill or a sunfish and I'm head over eels
But you never felt the same, fishing's just your kind of game
You said hook, line, and sinker, I hardly know her

You're an angler and a sportsman
And I am just a helpless northern pike
You mounted me, made me into a trophy
When I'd even rather be a trophy wife

I'm a humble fish in love, can't believe this feeling's real
I'm a bluegill or a sunfish and I'm head over eels
But you never felt the same, fishing's just your kind of game
You said hook, line, and sinker, I hardly know her

At least you threw me back, you tried to make it right
This hole in my mouth will haunt me the rest of my life

I'm a humble fish in love, can't believe this feeling's real
I'm a bluegill or a sunfish and I'm head over eels
But you never felt the same, fishing's just your kind of game
You said hook, line, and sinker, I hardly know her
