4. Love Hurts 

Love hurts

Love scars

Love wounds

And mars

Any heart

Not tough

Or strong enough

To take a lot of pain

Take a lot of pain

Love is like a cloud

Holds a lot of rain


Love hurts

Ooooo love hurts


I'm young

I know

But even so

I know a thing 

Or two

I've learned

From you

I've really learned a lot

Really learned a lot

Love is like a stove

It burns you when it's hot


Love hurts

Ooooo love hurts


Some fools think of happiness

Blissfulness

Togetherness

Some fools fool themselves I guess

They're not fooling me

I know it isn't true

I know it isn't true

Love is just a lie

Made to make you blue


Love hurts

Oooo love hurts


Love hurts 

Oooo love hurts

​Oh oh love hurts


9. Some Memories

I came back one more time

To take another look around

The memories here are tattooed  on my mind

This old town feels like sacred ground

I remember we'd sneak out after dark

And we'd meet up down at that park

We smoked your mom's cigarettes

And drank his dad's beer

After all this time it seems so crystal clear

Funny how some memories

Stay all too clear


I drove his sister down where the blacktop ends

And if he knew 

I doubt we'd still be friends

She took me where I'd never been before

And I knew I couldn't go back for more

Funny how some memories

Can leave you wanting more

Nobody knows

Because nobody told

And I ain't namin' names

We all got bruised

Some still have scars

It wasn't all fun and games

Seems to me some memories

Still hurt you just the same


They say the guilty go back to the crime

If that's true

I'd go back in time

I wouldn't make the same mistake twice

Losin' her was way too high a price

Funny  how some memories

Come with way too high a price

And nobody knows

'cause nobody  saw

And I ain't namin' names

We all got bruised

Some still have scars

It wasn't all fun and games

Seems to me some memories

Still hurt you just the same


I came back one more time

To take one last look around


6. Four Wheelin' (in 2 wheel drive)

Together as one when we left that church

The honeymoon ended we started to search

For those things that show who we are

Pullin' apart we didn't get far

And I know I was too blind to see

Go ahead put the blame on me


And we were four wheelin' in two wheel drive

Spinnin' our wheels on our downhill slide

Couldn't get no traction

Wouldn't swallow that pride

We were four wheelin' in two wheel drive


She had plans but I had schemes

We just couldn't sync up our dreams

So she went her way and I went mine

She found a calling 

I died on the vine

There I sat with my head in my hands

Watchin' that hourglass drainin' sand


And we were four wheelin' in two wheel drive

Spinnin' our wheels on our downhill slide

Couldn't get no traction

Wouldn't swallow that pride

We were four wheelin' in two wheel drive

Yes we were four wheelin' in two wheel drive


I was lookin' in that rear view mirror

To see what went wrong

That's when I realized it was me all along


We crossed paths a couple years ago

Success had found her but love not so

Just as pretty as the day we wed

As she got up to leave this is what she said

You know we may have done it all wrong

But the story of us would make a great country song


'Cause we were four wheelin' in two wheel drive

Spinnin' our wheels on our downhill slide

Couldn't get no traction

Wouldn't swallow that pride

We were four wheelin' in two wheel drive

Yes we were 

Four wheelin' in two wheel drive

Spinnin' our wheels on our downhill slide
Couldn't get no traction
Wouldn't swallow that pride
We were four wheelin' in two wheel drive
Yes we were
Four wheelin' in two wheel drive

Four wheelin' in two wheel drive


5. Plaintiff

Don't know what her name was

Not that I recall

Can't say much about her

Except she was a doll

Today I got the letter

Explained it to a "T"

Seems her name is Plaintiff

And she hates me

Took a trip out to Vegas

But it's all a blur

When I came to my senses

I was holding her

My friends all left me

Down on bended knee

Not sure what I promised

'Cause she never did leave

She asked lots of questions

Mostly 'bout my past

What I did for a livin'

How I paid for gas

When she found out

It wasn't like I said

She quit talkin' to me

And hired a lawyer instead

Don't know what her name was 

Not that I recall

Can't say much about her

Except she was a doll

Today I got a letter

Explained it to a "T"

Seems her name is Plaintiff

And she hates me

If you find yourself

With one like her

She can't take a joke

She wants to see you burn

Well take my advice

And protect yourself

If her name is Plaintiff

You better run like hell

Don't know what her name was

Not that I recall

Can't say much about her

Except she was a doll

Today I got a letter 

Explained it to a "T"

Seems her name is Plaintiff 

And she hates me

Oh yeah

Seems her name is Plaintiff 

And she hates me

Seems her name is Plaintiff

And she hates me

Yes she does.

10. Always a Marine

He left home at seventeen

With not a lot to lose

Wound up in San Diego

With a whole lot to prove

The pride and traditions

He had never seen before

He was just a kid from Texas

Who signed up for the Corps

When the country needed volunteers

He had no reservations

And even though he left school

That never stopped his education

So the words to the Marine's Hymn

Became his alma mater

And the tattoo on his forearm read

"Death before dishonor"


Though I never wore that uniform

There's somethin' about that green

Can't be called a leatherneck

But I know what that means

Things he learned from the Corps

He passed 'em down to me

Semper Fi, do or die 

My old man was always a Marine


They taught him how to be a man

And to always do what's right

To do it right the first time

Not back down from a fight

He showed us at an early age

How to serve our fellow man

Said "there ain't no higher calling

Than to stand for those that can't"


Though I never wore that uniform

There's somethin' about that green

Can't be called a leatherneck

But I know what that means

Things he learned from the Corps

He passed 'em down to me

Semper Fi, do or die

My old man was always a Marine


And Semper Fidelis became his way of life

Always faithful to God, his country, 

And his wife


Though I never wore that uniform 

There's somethin' about that green 

Can't be called a leatherneck

But I know what that means

Lessons learned from the Corps

He passed 'em down to me

Semper Fi, do or die

My old man

Yeah

Semper Fi, do or die

My old man 

Semper Fi, do or die

My old man was always a Marine


We cried like kids the day he died

And they said that he was gone

The piper at his funeral 

Played his favorite song

1. The Red Light

​No one will ever know just what you've done to me

No one will ever see just how you treated me

You left me all alone

You crushed my dreams, took all I own

No one will see what you've done

When the red light comes on


When the red light comes on, I play my part

When the red light comes on, makeup hides my scars

I know all my lines

I've rehearsed 'em so many times

They'll all think I'm fine

When the red light comes on


My friends won't know it's all an act

They won't ever guess that you're not coming back

Then comes act two

And I'll go on without you

I won't miss my cues when the red light comes on


When the red light comes on, I play my part

When the red light comes on, makeup hides my scars

I know all my lines

I've rehearsed 'em so many times

They'll all think I'm fine

When the red light comes on


No one will ever know how hard this is

No one will ever guess my heart's in pieces


When the red light comes on, I play my part

When the red light comes on, makeup hides my scars

I know all my lines

I've rehearsed 'em so many times

They'll all think I'm fine 

When that red light comes on, I'll play my part

When the red light comes on, makeup hides my scars

I know all my lines

I've rehearsed 'em so many times

You'll all think I'm fine

​When the red light comes on



3. Un-Merry Go Round

She's drinking again

Her lipstick's on the bottle

Was it something I did

Or something I oughta

With her it seems

That I can never tell

What I 'm supposed to do

I think it's time to bid her farewell


So I'm getting off this un-merry go round

I'm sick and I'm tired

Of going round and round and round

If I don't get off 

I'll be six feet in the ground

And I've had enough of this un-merry go round


She says I'm to blame

When things don't work out right

And that's how she starts

Each and every fight

She opens old wounds 

And fills 'em up with salt

She'd have you believe 

That somehow it's all my fault


So I'm getting off this un-merry go round
I'm sick and I'm tired
Of going round and round and round
If I don't get off 
I'll be six feet in the ground
And I've had enough of this un-merry go round


She's leavin' again

She's got her bags by the front door

Won't stand in her way

Like I did those times before

I'm lettin' her go

It's time to man up and that's a fact

I found some lost pride

And I'm not gonna take her back


Cuz I'm getting off this un-merry go round
I'm sick and I'm tired
Of going round and round and round
If I don't get off 
I'll be six feet in the ground
And I've had enough of this un-merry go round

I've had enough of this un-merry go round

Yeah I just got off of this 

Un-merry go round



​Andrew Thomas Walton was born and raised in the Metroplex of Dallas, Texas.  He began his musical career as a drummer and even hit the road full time at the ripe old age of 16. However, as Andrew puts it, he picked up the guitar "...because you can't serenade girls on a drum set." He formed several bands with his brother and played popular nightspots as well as college venues throughout Texas.  However, as most bands do, the individual members moved on to pursue other interests. So, after college, Andrew served in various capacities as an officer in the US Army.  During this time he occasionally applied his talents to bolster the morale of soldiers serving in exotic locales. In 2013, Andrew returned to the Dallas area, and was invited to apply his talents on Vocals, Lead Guitar, Banjo, Dobro and Lap Steel in support of several local artists.  In late 2015, Andrew released his first full length CD entitled “Love and Litigation”.  Andrew wrote, sang and played all instruments and in May 2016, “Love and Litigation” was named an Executive Selection for Best Country / Rock Album by the Akademia Music  Awards.                                                  Andrew Thomas Walton was born and raised in the

8. I Know Crazy (when I see it)

When the hair on the back of my neck stood up

I knew you were around

And the voices inside my head chimed in

Said "son you better leave now"

Then you walked up to me

And kissed my lips

I knew I'd seen this before

And I'm not hanging around for more


I know crazy when I see it

I see that look in your eyes again

I know crazy when I see it

Your disguise is way too thin

I've seen it all before

And I know what's in store

And I'm not playing your crazy game no more


Would crazy by another name

Still taste as sweet

I want you now 

Like ever before

But I won't have a seat

At the table you set to lure me in

To try to bring me down

'Cause I won't be coming back around


I know crazy when I see it

I see that look in your eyes again

I know crazy when I see it

Your disguise is way too thin

I've seen it all before

And I know what's in store

And I'm not playing your crazy game no more

I know crazy

I know crazy


Those things you say

Those things you do 

To get inside my head

When it all comes together

But it doesn't add up

Time to run from you I said


I know crazy when I see it

I see that look in your eyes again

I know crazy when I see it

Your disguise is way too thin

I 've seen it all before

And I know what's in store

And I'm not playing your crazy game no more

No oooo

I'm not playing your crazy game no more

No no no

I'm not playing your crazy game no more

I know crazy

I know crazy



2.  Splitsville

For better or worse

It just got worse

And it's the same song

Different verse


So I find myself in town again

Paying the tab for all my sins

How I got here is all too clear

So I think I'll have another beer

And drink 'til I get my fill

That sign at the end of the road

Says Welcome to Splitsville


A journey of a thousand miles

Begins with just one step

The path I took that brought me here

Is now littered with regret


I know where it all went wrong

Seems my weakness for another is strong

Too many times I went to that well

And now I'm alone

Alone in Splitsville


It's an easy place to get to

But it's not on any map

If you don't change your way of thinkin'

You can get here just like that

Once you get to that point

Where the damage is all but done

You're on your way to Splitsville, uh huh

Population One

Population One


The road can be so short

From Love to Litigation

And if you've ever been to Splitsville son

You know it's no vacation


You see in Splitsville the tears never end

So now I sit alone with my friends

And drink 'til I get my fill

Of being the fool..the fool of Splitsville


It's an easy place to get to
But it's not on any map
If you don't change your way of thinkin'
You can get here just like that
Once you get past that point
Where the damage has all been done
You'll find yourself in  Splitsville, baby
Population One
Population One


For better or worse

It just got worse



7. I Won't Stay All Night

Baby, I been thinking about us

And I know I've broken your trust

But if I'd ever thought that our love would die

I would've have stayed here by your side


And I know as of late

Things ain't been going so great

And darling outside it's cold

Let me stay

Don't make me go


I won't stay all night

But let me stay here a little while

I won't stay all night

But let me stay a little while

We could sing

We could dance

Baby just one more chance

Oh just let me stay here a little while


I can see that livin' apart

Ain't been the best from the start

You call out my name

But it don't feel the same

As it did when I held your heart

I want it 

Like it was before this

To start each new day with a kiss

I want to wake up to your smile

And your sleepy eyes

Girl there's so much about you I miss


I won't stay all night

But let me stay here a little while

I won't stay  all night

But let me stay here a little while

We could sing

We could dance

Baby just one more chance

Oh just let me stay here a little while


We can make sweet love like we do

Then say good morning 

When our night is through


I won't stay all night

But let me stay here just a little while

I won't stay all night

But let me stay here just a little while

We could sing

We could dance

Maybe save this romance

Oh just let me stay here a little while

We could sing 

We can dance

Baby one more last chance

Oh just let me stay here a little while

Please let me stay just a little while

Please let me stay just a little while
