Trace Adkins Lyrics


BORN: January 13, 1962

Trace Adkins has too much blue-collar in his bones to put
up with a lot of star-style ego, even from himself. So the
six-foot-six ex-oilfield roughneck tends to let modesty get
in the way of self-promotion.

He won’t tell you that the bass end of his big baritone can
drop into a bottom so deep that it is apt to shake walls…
but it can. He won’t tell you he has similar command of
higher vocal ranges, even a heart-fluttering falsetto…but
he does. He won’t tell you he’s able to sing a whole
spectrum of styles of More...

    ------ About the song I'm Tryin' performed by Trace Adkins

Thoughts Inspired by the song “I’m Tryin’ ” by Trace Adkins

Sometimes, despite all of our best efforts, intentions and prayers – we screw up, we fail, we miss the mark, we disappoint and we sin. Ideally, we would be forgiven for our shortcomings and loved despite our imperfection.

Unfortunately, we know that this is rarely the case. This is especially true as we age – as the promise of what we could be – all of our potential for greatness – has begun to fade and the truth of our lives path has been revealed. For many, the realization that they are not going to have or be what they dreamed is something from which they never recover. Anger, resentment, regret – woulda, shoulda, coulda’s – fill their mind, harden their hearts and infect their relationships. Marriages and families are destroyed by “if only’s” – the idea that one’s life would have been better – different – if only we had married someone else – anyone else – or had chosen a different course for our lives.

This is the territory of the enemy. When we become consumed with these feelings, it becomes impossible to see any of our blessings, to remember what we loved about this person, or to accept our lives as a gift from God – to be lived, loved and sometimes endured. It all has meaning and purpose – part of life – of maturing in our faith – is in seeking to understand the lessons that reside in our troubles and disappointments.

But this darkness – the demon of disappointment – is a nasty bitch, once she has set her teeth into the heart and mind she does not surrender willingly or easily. Look around you – think about people you know, the struggles, strife and pain that exist – how much of it originates in these very thoughts and feelings? A lot! Tragically, the victims of this darkness extend beyond the infected – because spouses, children, friends, co-workers – store clerks even – live in the wake of these moods and attitudes. The closer one is to the flame, the more consumed they become with trying to alleviate the disappointment – to be seen, loved, accepted – enough. The darkness tells those around it that they are not enough (unwanted?) – a feeling sometimes worse than death in many ways.

So, it becomes the responsibility of each of us to accept our lives; to accept our choices, our failings, our frailty, our weakness and true selves. Others will or will not accept us as we are – now. Most will not – they may accept us conditionally (what you might become) or reject us completely. I think this it what draws people back to the friends of their youth – the people and places who knew them to the core and loved them. As the closing line of Stand By Me summed up so perfectly – “I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anybody?”

At the end of the day – all you can do is all you can do. The rest is often out of your control. This is a heartbreaking truth. We want to believe that if we do our best we will get the outcome we desire. No so. You can love and not be loved in return. You can work hard, do a great job and still be fired. You can be the perfect candidate for the job and still not be chosen. Sucks! Yet, in a way it is a liberating thought – you cannot control the outcome! What a relief. Do your best and forget the rest. Strive to be the kind of person you want to see more of in the world – be accepting, be a friend, be forgiving, work hard, love deeply, be gentle, have fun and embrace people where they are, as they are. We have to know – even if they are screwing up – it is likely that they are trying their best – just take it and move on.

To all of those whom I love – who I have disappointed, failed, upset – please forgive and accept me – I’m Tryin’.

Peace & God Bless!

    ------ About the song Honky Tonk Badonkadonk performed by Trace Adkins

It's a fun song and I laugh everytime I hear it. I gave my daughter quite the Honky Tonk Badonkadonk and the Butt Men love our butts :-) As far as the Donkey Kong comments I would say it in there because it Rhymes and "Donkey Kong" and "Her Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" are both an addiction you just can't get enough of.

a bit inopropreate...still... | Reviewer: Saddle up
    ------ About the song Honky Tonk Badonkadonk performed by Trace Adkins

It is a little inporpreate, but I still think it is a good song with a great beat.
I think what he means by Donkey Kong, is like DK is a monkey or whatever, and monkeys swing, and she's like swing'n or whatever...so there...that's what I think.

He wrote it for me | Reviewer: Chrome Girl
    ------ About the song Chrome performed by Trace Adkins

I tell ya, this has been one of my favorite songs ever since it came out. Anyone who knows me would believe if I told the it was written about me.
I'm all about the Chrome, especially on my '68 Chevelle, my Harley (altho it's not an Electra Glide), and also, being a Daddy's Girl, the big Mack Truck (daddy was a trucker!). As far as driving...HELL YEA...and the faster the better, be it car, truck, bike, snowmachine, ATV...I run with the "big boys" and usually leave them in my dust! Some call me a red-neck. That's alright too. But when this song comes on...WATCH OUT! :o)

Equal abilities | Reviewer: Carmen
    ------ About the song Chrome performed by Trace Adkins

I think it is neat that she isn't afraid to do tasks like drive a big Mac truck even though the people typically doing that are male. (just based on what the singer is saying.) Women do have equal abilities as men in most everything - except giving birth - LOL - and should be treated as such. I liked how when he talked to her patronizingly, calling her a "little girl" she was assertive and told him she did not need to be driven around, in fact she was quite capable of driving herself. I think women should follow her example and stand up for themselves. She stood up for herself after he talked down to her and then he respected her as an equal and wrote the song. :) By the way, a woman could wear little mellow yellow daisies and still love chrome too - you don't have to choose between being only "masculine" or only feminine" - just develop your God-given skills and talents and wear whatever appeals to you. :)

Sacred Ground | Reviewer: Jim
    ------ About the song Arlington performed by Trace Adkins

My daughter is currently serving in the middle east. She is an American soldier and is proud to be that to her core as am I of her. If, God forbid, anything happens. This sacred ground is where she will rest with the rest of the heroic men and women who put it all on the line for us. God Bless every one of them past, present and future. Anyone that thinks our freedom isn't paid for in blood needs to come here before they open their mouths.

    ------ About the song Then Came the Night performed by Trace Adkins

My opinion as a songwriter: this song is perfection, you can see the lyrics take place like a movie. Listen to every word and be moved to that place where the depth of your soul is shaken and stroked...

Of course, it takes Trace to make it what it is..
there is no better male country artist than Trace Adkins

ahhhh, music, can't imagine a day without it!

DONKEY KONG?!?!?!?!?!? | Reviewer: Derek Michaelis
    ------ About the song Honky Tonk Badonkadonk performed by Trace Adkins

Why in the hell did Trace mention Donkey Kong?!?! Its a country song! Oh and by the way believe me, Donkey Kong doesnt have ANYTHING going on! This song is still funny as hell though! I also agree with Toby: our world is WAY too serious!
