Chris Stapleton - The Right Ones Lyrics




Put me on a chain
You put me in a box
You put me in a cage
And you start throwin' rocks

I offer up my heart
I offer up my soul
You wanted me to dance
I just wanna rock n roll

I don't know what I'm 'sposed to say sometimes
Where to draw that line
You oughta know
Nobody cares if the words don't rhyme
If you say the right ones

I waited in the rain
Pulled out all the stops
Walked out on the stage
And I played until we dropped
I tore the place apart
Let 'em all alone
I wanna take a chance,
You wanna take it slow

I don't know what I'm 'sposed to say sometimes
Where to draw that line
You oughta know
Nobody cares if the words don't rhyme
If you say the right ones

I'm downtown
With a down crowd
Drinkin' my best not to think about you
Just a fool's hope at the end of my rope
Sitting at the bar, praying for a miracle

I don't know what I'm 'sposed to say sometime
Where to draw that line
You oughta know
Nobody cares if the words don't rhyme
If you say the right ones

I don't know what I'm 'sposed to say sometime
Where to draw that line
You oughta know
Nobody cares if the words don't rhyme
If you say the right ones

Chris Stapleton The Right Ones Comments
  1. Betty Wardell

    THE MAN IS A NATURA SINGER, SONG WRITER, HE HAS SOUL, BLUES, JAZZ, COUNTRY.!!! HE & JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE SING GREAT TOGETHER!!! I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR THE TWO OF THEM IN LIVE CONCERT TOGETHER! 👍🤠💯🐎🎶🎼🎸🎤

  2. Michael Carter

    ☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️Top song

  3. Michele Muscat

    Chris is a great song and everything but I think violence they need to be put in the cage I don't care about this song I really don't like it I hit like it sounds good in everything but you can't do music on crib notes we need good music uplifting for changing this country and we need a stop to this violence and these games you're just promoting it thank you for this listening

  4. Michele Muscat

    Chris this is a great song I've never heard it before I hope it's going to play on the radio I'll listen for it outstanding 😁😍😎😘

  5. Chevy Ethridge CHULA 229

    He sounds just like Mac Powell from Third Day

  6. Blaine Bauman

    Same chord progression as if I could talk I’d tell you by the Lemonheads, cool

  7. trish ferris

    Just his voice and guitar got me rockin the hell out 😎

  8. Jonathan martinez

    Why am I just hearing this... dammit

  9. Richelle Evans Lizarraga

    I would love to hear Chris cover some Adele songs!!

  10. Martin Pyttlik

    It might be the most beautiful song I have ever heard…

  11. Josh Holbrook

    I thought it was “supersonic” until I watched this video

  12. Craig H.

    That poor old guitar gets the hell played out of it everytime he picks it up. To say it has signs of wear and tear is an understatement.

  13. Jennifer McCullough

    Every time I say, "ok so this my favorite song of his", I hear another one ughhhh. I LOVE THIS MAN!!

  14. Not Bill Gates

    To the people who DISLIKED this video... I will find you... and I will haunt you down... AND SHOW YOU GOOD MUSIC you sad clown

  15. Slawtrdhed2

    How do nearly 1000 people dislike this ?

  16. KHzValerie Smith

    im a big music fan of singers in all genres EXCEPT hip hop and pop.but ive never heard or hear anyone whos as great singer as chris stapleton!!!!

  17. Michelle Brazil

    Incredible!!!

  18. Dixie Rebel

    ❤🎶❤

  19. Mike Beasley

    CHRIS STAPLETON HAS BEEN NAMED ARTIST/SONGWRITER OF THE DECADE (2010-2019) BY THE CMA CEMENTING HIS LEGACY AS A LIVING COUNTRY MUSIC LEGEND!!!!!!!!!

    KHzValerie Smith

    that made me rediculosly happy!

  20. Splaticus Blah

    Sbhould be called the right one because the word "Love" is the right one.

  21. CrazyKayaker

    he'd be a great santa

  22. Evan Alvarez

    Great guitar rift... because Tom Petty and the heartbreakers did it first. Learning to fly

  23. Ram_rebel_ 805

    Just imagine all the other number one hits he has up there just stored away

  24. Splaticus Blah

    The song is actually called "The Right One" not ones.

  25. Chad Swanson

    Can y’all believe this guy used to be just a song writer? Literally the greatest voice I’ve ever heard from a man

  26. 450peen

    Sucha banger

  27. Matthew Dinsdale

    Mr. Stapleton is the greatest solo guitarist/singer I’ve ever heard in in my life. Been playing guitar since 5 years old, now 50. Thank you Mr. Stapleton. and thanks to your parents.

  28. Bianca Brainard

    Anyone know of this is on Apple Music?

  29. Splaticus Blah

    This is a brilliant song as only Chris can do.

  30. Bitterrootbackroads

    When I try the car radio my finger stays on the scan button and 2 seconds of wherever it stops is generally enough. ONE second of this would have me reaching for the volume! Never heard of Chris till Tennessee whiskey hit the award show. Stunning failure of the radio / music industry to let this lie by the wayside.

  31. Matt cat

    That was the right one, one more Chris, thanks!!! Yeah, yeah, yeah!

  32. Alexander Goulding

    That songwriting partnership needs to continue. Rivals the best. I can listen to this 30 times in a row and still find it magnificent. Absolutely spectacular.

  33. Cynthia Reese

    Goose bumps.....all I have to say. Love this guy!!! This is on repeat while I'm working away at my desk.

  34. Bitterrootbackroads

    I've given up trying to find stuff like this cause I didn't think it existed anymore! Guess I need to catch up with Chris on YouTube.

  35. Austin Robert

    Only Chris could have a slept-on song, with 7.3 million views on YT

    Mike Beasley

    THAT ISTRUE BUT THIS WAS RECORDED IN 2013! HE HASN'T EVEN REALLY STARTED HIS CAREER & I'M SURE HAS NO. EARTHLY IDEA WHAT IS IN STORE OVER THE NEXT 6 YEARS!!!!! I SUGGEST TO LISTEN TO HIS VOICE RATHER THAN CRITIQUE.HIS APPEARA.NCE. YOU'LL PROBABLY NOT SO JUDGEMENTAL ABOUT HIS LOOK. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT OBSESSIVE PERSONALITY OF YOURS!!!!!### JUST SAYIN'...............

  36. Irma Thomas

    Great voice,great songs,what else you want?Im hooked on "What are you listening to ,,midnight train,,the sing with Justin.

  37. Corey Johnson

    I have been listening to this song for 5 years... record and put this song on an album already!!!

  38. Timothy Gilbert

    Put me on a chain
    You put me in a box
    You put me in a cage

    I offer up my heart

    I just wanna rock n roll

    And I played until we dropped
    I tore the place apart
    Let 'em all alone
    I wanna take a chance, 
    You wanna take it slow

  39. Kenny Money

    This would've been a great one for Tom Petty to sing. R.I.P.

    Mike Beasley

    YOU GOTTA HEAR CHRIS SING "LEARNING TO FLY". I SURE WISH TOM & CHRIS COULD HAVE DONE A COLLABORATION LIKE CHRIS & JT DID ON "SAY SOMETHING". IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EPIC!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Nick Mchenry

    Would love to hear you and adele sing together

  41. Jim Friend

    He sounds like a one man orchestra in this. The man oozes talent from every pore.

  42. Dave Backs

    Is this guy not amazing!!  Makes you proud to be an American that after many trials and tribulations, he's made it BIG!!

  43. meatloaf75

    I'm thinking that "Jazz band" was a Ratatouille writing session.

  44. jonah ramirez

    fuck! what a real voice

  45. Louisiana

    It's hard to follow the bridge, but the rest is awesome!

  46. Cosmic Killah

    It's so crazy how little credit the songwriters get. Honestly if I didn't hear of him just last year I don't know how long it would've taken me to know his name
