Song Description

You can go all country-funk with this, or bluesy-pop. A good reference track might be "High Class" (Eric Paslay). I wrote the entire lyric and my co-writer, guitarist Steve Rutledge, banged out the changes. The whole thing took us about 45 minutes.

Story Behind the Song

List songs are fun. This is a list of someone's excuses for not showing up.


Sixteen Chances
Sarah Motes Ashley & Steve Rutledge

you lost your keys
you fell asleep
you forgot which one's my street
well that's one two three
But you're so cute
I let you slide
Then you lie
sweet as pie
I gave you four I gave you five

I gave you sixteen chances baby
I shoulda gave you two
I was a fool
I gave you
Sixteen chances baby
But you blew the last one
and I'm done
I'm done with you

count 'em up, count 'em down

Your car won't start
your ride was late
you said you had to leave the state
that's six seven eight
You closed the bar
You made new friends
I gotta bail you out again
I gave you nine I gave you ten


Your phone works
when you call another man
Your grandma's fine
until we have plans
you give me heartbreak
and frustration
but I gotta give it up
for your imagination
