Bait a Hook

Album: Outlaws Like Me (2011)
Charted: 63
  • I heard you had to drive him home after two umbrella drinks
    I heard he's got a Prius, 'cause he's into bein' green
    My buddies said he saw y'all, eatin' that sushi stuff
    Baby that don't sound like you,
    That don't sound like love,
    Sounds like it sucks

    He can't even bait a hook
    He can't even skin a buck
    He don't know who Jack Daniels is
    He ain't ever drove a truck
    Knows how to throw out a line,
    But not the kind in a field and stream book
    No darlin' I ain't even worried,
    You'll come runnin' back
    He can't even bait a hook

    Has he kissed you in a hay field
    As the sumer rain falls down?
    Has he took you to meet his mama,
    Back in his home town?
    Does he drive the interstate,
    Or take them old back roads?
    Can he melt your heart with a country song,
    Every good old boy should know?
    I didn't think so

    He can't even bait a hook
    He can't even skin a buck
    He don't know who Jack Daniels is
    He ain't ever drove a truck
    Knows how to throw out a line,
    But not the kind in a field and stream book
    No darlin' I ain't even worried,
    You'll come runnin' back
    He can't even bait a hook

    It won't be that long, 'till you start gettin' bored
    I'll be smilin' on the river, realin' in one more

    He can't even bait a hook
    He can't even skin a buck
    Hell he don't know who Jack Daniels is
    He ain't ever drove a truck
    Knows how to throw out a line,
    But not the kind in a field and stream book
    No darlin' I ain't even worried,
    'Cause you'll come runnin' back
    He can't even bait a hook
    No baby I ain't even worried
    He can't even bait a hook Writer/s: JEREMY STOVER, RHETT AKINS, JUSTIN MOORE
