  • Done
    The first time I saw you, done
    Like the first dance was through, I was done
    That one kiss, I knew
    There was nothing I wouldn't do
    Just to give you

    That house on a hill with a four-plank around it
    Every last breath 'til the last star is counted
    Just say the word girl, paint me, you're perfect
    I won't quit 'til the good Lord says my work is done
    Like a faded out song on the radio, done
    Like the cowboy gets the girl when the credits roll
    I'll give you a lifetime of days in the sun
    Whatever you need and you want
    I won't stop 'til it's done

    Done
    All the hell I was raising, done
    All the careless heartbreaking, done
    For the chance that you're taking
    I spend my nights praying
    And all my days chasing

    That house on a hill with a four-plank around it
    Every last breath 'til the last star is counted
    Just say the word girl, paint me, you're perfect
    I won't quit 'til the good Lord says my work is done
    Like a faded out song on the radio, done
    Like the cowboy gets the girl when the credits roll
    I'll give you a lifetime of days in the sun
    Whatever you need and you want
    I won't stop 'til it's done

    You know I won't stop 'til it's done
    You need a man you can lean on, done
    You need some faith you can hang your dreams on
    Check 'em off one by one

    In that house on a hill with a four-plank around it
    Every last breath 'til the last star is counted
    Just say the word girl, paint me, you're perfect
    I won't quit 'til the good Lord says my work is done
    Like a faded out song on the radio, done
    Like the cowboy gets the girl when the credits roll
    I'll give you a lifetime of days in the sun
    Whatever you need and you want
    I won't stop 'til it's done

    Baby, I won't stop 'til it's done
    Oh, you know I ain't done
    First time I saw you, done Writer/s: Chris P. Janson, Jamie Allen Paulin, Matthew Ryan Roy, Mitchell Edward Oglesby

  • I Love Your Songs! from MassachusettsI had a friend that drunk girl was written for.... I tried to tell her... Massachusetts doesn’t have men... I couldn’t follow her... so she was all alone.... I wish you could have saved that one!
  • Wondering from Dunn, NcWhy doesnt the words say, Like the cowboy gets the girl when the "credits run" intead of "credits roll"? It would rhyme so much better.
  • Pamela from Maryville Tennessee I Totally love the song Done. I love Chris and all his songs
