about

This tune is about thinking you have everything you want and then in a blink of an eye it can all change... for better, and sometimes not so better...

When we went into the studio to record "Count on Me' it was slated to be a slow heartbreaking ballad. As I was laying playing for the musicians, I was playing it a bit faster just to give them the idea. Then someone said, "I like it with that up feel you're playing" So we tried it, and everyone agreed that what you hear is definitely the groove this song needed.

lyrics

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
