Asleep at the Wheel tells us what their favorite lyrics are from their latest studio album 'New Routes' and one of them comes from singer-songwriter, Paolo Nutini.


We sat down with Ray Benson and Katie Shorr of the group Asleep at the Wheel and discussed their incredible songwriting and which songs had their favorite lyrics. The country band recently released their latest LP, New Routes, and while it's hard to narrow down specific lyrics, both Benson and Shorr discussed a song that held a special place in their hearts.

For Shorr, her favorite lyrics come from their song "Pencil Full of Lead" and the lyrics are "Nothing's gonna get me down." And for Benson, his favorite's come from "Call It A Day Tonight," and they include "Nothing's shakin,' love been taken / I'm losing the fight so I guess I'll call it a day tonight."

Check out the full video above to learn more and sing along to "Pencil Full of Lead" with the lyrics below!

"Pencil Full of Lead" Lyrics:

Oh, I've got a sheet for my bed and a pillow for my head
I've got a pencil full of lead and some water for my throat
I've got buttons for my coat and sails on my boat
So much more than I needed before

I got money in the meter and a two bar heater
Oh, now it's getting hotter, oh, it's only getting sweeter
I got legs on my chair and a head full of hair
Pot and a pan and some shoes on my feet

I got a shelf full of books and most of my teeth
A few pairs of socks and a door with a lock
I got food in my belly and a license for my telly
And nothing's gonna bring me down

Oh, no, oh
Oh no, oh no, nothin's gonna bring me down

I got a nice guitar and tires on my car
I got most of the means and scripts for the scenes
I'm out and about so I'm in with a shout
I got a fair bit of chat but better than that

Food in my belly and a license for my telly
And nothing's going to bring me down

Oh, nothin', oh, nothin'
Nothing's going to bring me down, oh

But best of all I've got my baby
Oh, best of all I've got my baby
She's mighty fine and says she's all mine
And nothing's going to bring me down, oh, ooh

Oh, best of all I've got my baby
Oh, best of all I've got my baby
She's mighty fine and says she's all mine
And nothing's going to bring me down

She's mighty fine and says she's all mine
And nothing's going to bring me down
She's mighty fine and says she's all mine
And nothing's going to bring me down, not today, no, no
