Count on Me (J. Birchfield, K. Manna) You thought forever Was all you’d ever go You thought you’d fallen As far as you could fall But you didn’t count on me Dancin’ one more dance Wasn’t in your plans You couldn’t find the strength To hold another’s hand But you didn’t count on me Girl you didn’t count on me There aint been much love to pull you through Girl if you let me I’m gonna make it up to you I’m Standing here now I’m not the kinda man whose gonna leave You can count on me Have you ever dreamed of a porch swing night With some moonlight in the wine Someone who’s gonna pour it out And lay it on the line Did you count on me? Did you ever dream of ridin’ down a Carolina road? Leanin’ on a man who loves you More than you’ll ever know Did you count on me? Bet you didn’t count on me There aint been much love to pull you through Girl if you let me I’m gonna make it up to you Standing here now I’m not the kinda man whose gonna leave You can count on me Betcha didn’t count on me (solo) There aint been much love to pull you through Girl if you let me I’m gonna make it up to you Standing here now I’m not the kinda man whose gonna leave Cause you can count on me You can count on me

Enjoy the Ride (J. Birchfield) Well I just met a girl that stole my soul She’s got eyes of hazel and hair of coal She’ll take you all the way to Heaven In just one night And leave you prayin’ for forgiveness In the mornin’ light She might be the death of me You might think she’s not my kind But you should fell the way I feel When she looks into my eyes You’d give it all up You’d cash it all in Say good-bye to your peace of mind Throw caution to the wind And just enjoy the ride She’s as wild as a copperhead soft like rain A direct descendent from the Dalton Gang She’ll steal your heart with just one touch Ya know the girl can’t help it Cause It’s in her blood (Chorus) (Solo) Well I love to watch her dance And she likes to hear me sing She puts the rhythm in my heart And the twang in my strings She want’s me all to herself at the end of the show So she can take me back home And do the dose-doe She might be the death of me You might think she’s not my kind But you should fell the way I feel When she looks into my eyes You’d give it all up You’d cash it all in Say good-bye to your peace of mind Throw caution to the wind And just enjoy the ride Throw caution to the wind Just enjoy the ride

Shootout Saturday Night (J. Birchfield, K. Manna) The blood in their veins is gasoline 4 Barrel carbs to help em breath Engines screamin at the heart of speed 43 gunners, driven 800 horses Come on now let’s make us some noise It’s a Shootout Saturday Night Gonna last till Sunday Talkin’ big money It’s a Shootout Saturday Night Six gun showdown Takin over speed town Gotta hang tough it’s a helluva fight Shootout Saturday Night It’s fast and it’s tough and it’s laced with oil Wound up tight as a rattlesnakes coil It’s one badass green and white Checkered world It’s revved up girls, and it’s beer and it’s sweat It’s double or nothing when you place your bet It’s a Shootout Saturday Night Gonna last till Sunday Talkin’ big money It’s a Shootout Saturday Night Six gun showdown Takin over speed town Gotta hang tough it’s a helluva fight Shootout Saturday Night Lika an angry train gone wrong Goin on and on and on and on and on and on and on It’s a Shootout Saturday Night Gonna last till Sunday Talkin’ big money It’s a Shootout Saturday Night Six gun showdown Takin over speed town Gotta hang tough it’s a helluva fight Shootout Saturday Night Shootout Saturday night

Drive-in Nights (J. Birchfield, K. Manna) Put on that Cotton dress You know the blue one that I like We’re gonna do some things We haven’t done in a long time Down the road of one last kiss We can two-lane reminisce Try to get away From the way it is Baby all you gotta do is smile at me Cause that’s what I miss That always takes me back To when the wheels were on the track When love was simple and easy to find And your kisses tasted like moonshine Under Neon Lights And Drive-in Nights How bout that county fair Ride that carnie Farris wheel We got stuck on top So we drank those two warm beers The fortune lady read our palms Said you’d marry a guy named Don Then she called the cops When you smashed her crystal ball Baby you still got that fire in your eyes Like I’m all you want Chorus Makin’ out at the Starlight Drive-in Never knowin when to say no Or when to say when You were the one Who made me feel like a star Solo Baby all you gotta do is smile at me Cause that’s what I miss Chorus

Claremont Café (J. Birchfield) Who’s next? Becomes your name When you walk in through that screen door Aint’ got a waitress You know they don’t credit cards Their ice tea’s so sweet They’ve never heard of Equal Their specialty is a burger with cheese With Chili mustard onions and coleslaw You say you’re nervous You’re not sure what to do Just be patient Till it comes down to you When you finally arrive At the head of that line Shout it out without a doubt Let it come from deep inside Halleluiah I’ll take it all the way I’ve got to have that Special grease Burnin’ in my veins Halleluiah Well this is my judgement day After just one bite I’ve finally seen the light At the Claremont Café Solo It ain’t no secret Bout where you been It’s not because you got that Chili on your chin Cause they smelled the aroma From halfway down the hall SO when you walk on by Raise your hands up high Testify to them all Halleluiah Well I took it all the way I’ve got to have that Special grease Burnin’ in my veins Halleluiah Well this is my judgement day After just one bite I’ve finally seen the light At the Claremont Café After just one bite I’ve finally seen the light At the Claremont Café After just one bite I’ve finally seen the light At the Claremont Café Amen-

When You Say Yes (J. Birchfield, K. Manna) When you say yes I’m gonna write you a love song One your hearts never heard When you say yes I’ll send you flowers every Friday With a card that doesn’t need any words You’re like the dream I can’t stop dreaming The forever that never ends When you say yes I won’t take it for granted The way your hair falls in your eyes We’ll be the best Even when the storms find us Cause I will be here by your side You’ll be all my days And all my sunsets My lover, and my best friend When you say yes Now things are changing With these promises and vows But I swear I won’t Let you down When you say yes I’m gonna sing you a love song Till you fall asleep every night You won’t have to guess If I really love you Cause I will be here by your side When you say yes… Say yes

about

The title of Jonathan Birchfield's second record, "Enjoy The Ride" says all there is to say. It's about having a great time and letting your heart break.... or mend, just a little.
Written mostly about good times in the South, this record will entertain listeners world-wide with a style consisting of Rockin', heartland, roots, country, with a little twist of funkiness. Jonathan's music has been compared to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zac Browne, Darius Rucker, Jimmy Buffett and Eric Church.
Throughout "Enjoy The Ride" JB takes you to the top of Ferris Wheels where teenagers steal a kiss and get their fortunes told at county fairs. Your mouth will water when you hear about a southern styled cheeseburger joint where you can find a different kind of paradise....Carolina style that is.
He’ll sing of a blue cotton dress he can’t forget and take you back to hot Saturday nights where stock-car racing was born.
Neon Lights and the giant silver screens of Drive-In theaters will cast pictures of a nostalgia almost forgotten. And Beer drinkers worldwide will be drunk with power as they sing about the mighty fraternity of beer!!
There is one moment on this CD that will break, or mend your heart. It's amazing what the power of hearing just one word can do to a life. A Nashville producer coined "When You Say Yes" as the next great wedding song.
This record is good for the music lovers soul. It leaves you hungry for more, and longing to "Give it all up, cash it all in, and say good-by to your piece of mind. And just Enjoy The Ride!"

about

jonathan birchfield Charlotte, North Carolina

From the foothills of NC Jonathan has been entertaining and turning heads for 35 years. Think of Keith Richards and Merle Haggard jaming with Lynyrd Skynyrd. In an over saturated world of “bro-country”, country outlaw wannabes, JB has remained true to the roots of his musical past. JBs music has been described as an in your face, southern country, roots rock, from the southern heartland. ... more
