Wade Hayes – On a Good Night Lyrics

On a good night I could hop in my truck
Round up my friends and with any kind of luck
We could end up howling at a harvest moon

On a good night I could put on my hat
Head down to the honky tonk and dance
But on a real good night I meet a women like you

Chorus:
Brown hair blue eyes once in a life time
Countrified kind of girl
Heart-breaking chance-taking wild little love making
Shaking up my world
Hey, on a good night I can picture the day
All my dreams come true
But on a real good night I meet a women like you

— Instrumental —

On a good night I can drive to the lake
Turn on the radio and find George Strait
Then go play a little game of eight ball pool

On a good night I might be found
Draggin with the boys cross town
But on a real good night I meet a women like you

Chorus:
Brown hair blue eyes once in a life time
Countrified kind of girl
Heart-breaking chance-taking wild little love making
Shaking up my world
Hey, on a good night I can picture the day
All my dreams come true
But on a real good night I meet a women like you

— Instrumental —

Chorus:
Brown hair blue eyes once in a life time
Countrified kind of girl
Heart-breaking chance-taking wild little love making
Shaking up my world
Hey, on a good night I can picture the day
All my dreams come true
But on a real good night I meet a women like you

Yeah, on a real good night I meet a women like you…
