LaRue, Stoney - Look At Me Fly Lyrics

Well how was I to know that the dust in my soul
Was there for a reason the reason won't show
It could be rust it might be gold
It's out of my hands on with the show
The prize that already bears my name
Just gotta get there first before it gets claimed
And I'll call on you when I find the time
And I promise I'll wave goodbye

High above the water never think twice
Must have been a long way down
And I'll catch you when the next sunrise comes back around
Yeah I should have told you I was stuck in my ways
Must have passed the white flags by
But I'm high above the water now, look at me fly

I'm lookin' at the devil standin' in the roses
Starin' right at me, where you want to go son
Take what you need but don't wear yourself down
If you stir up trouble you know I'll be around
But you better not call when the money's not right
In the free of the fall no one to kiss goodnight
Take a look around, make yourself at home
Just take a deep breath it will be just fine

High above the water never think twice
Must have been a long way down
And I'll catch you when the next sunrise comes back around
Yeah I should have told you I was stuck in my ways
Must have passed the white flags by
But I'm high above the water now, look at me fly
Yeah, just look at me fly

  4. Frank Krick

  5. Jamie Foster

    The new generation of Cowboy Story Tellers. Keeping a time honored tradition alive and not only that but making it sound like a new sensation. I challenge anyone to cram an entire story into 4 minutes about 40 times a night, and do it night after night on tour...

  6. lynn horton


  7. Travis Harris

    Trashville look at him fly now

  8. Joel LaRance

    Leo Karasinski

    Umm if you ain't here in 2019 you're a nobody


    Absolutely here

  17. Lance Lee

    Is is wrong that I played this song on repeat like over 100 times while I BBQ'ed. All day long. Is that OCD? Should I see a doctor?..

  18. Lance Lee

    Badass song!.. 🇺🇸🇨🇱🇺🇸!!...

  19. Giovanni Lombardi

  23. Meagan Keyser

    Seen Stoney @POssum Kingdom one year, if you hadn’t seen him, GO!!!!

  24. Chuck Duffy

    Sure wish I would have heard this song six years ago! Wouldn't have made a difference, but maybe by now I would be tired of hearing it. Been switching from Pandora free. To YouTube. For at least 8 months. Just to hear it again.

    Chuck Duffy

    Yeah if water is depression. Even with modern scuba gear. Looking like sometime in the next 10 feet. Splushe

  25. Efinity

    Absolutely one of the best songs hands down I've ever heard in my life!!

  26. JC Embrey

    Hes still my favorite Okie !

    Josh W

    JC Embrey hes from Texas srry brother

  27. Cameron Eacret


  28. Josh M

    I found this guy Following Cody Jinks, Matt Mason, and Cody Canada. Good GOOD stuff!

  29. Howlin' Donster

    I dig how Stoney just keeps his music simple and tight not having the need to wow with overwhelming flash.. He gets more out of letting the music and lyrics pull you in and kick your ass.. Red Dirt is where its at...

  30. Sara Lou

    I went to your concert last night @ Gruene Hall July 7, 2017 it was for my 14th birthday and I really enjoy music and my friend told me that if I watch you it would really inspire me to do something with music because it did for him and now I really want to take it seriously so thank you so much because you're the reason I want to be a singer now.

  31. Jacob Hill

    such a treasure of a song, life on the road

  32. Ron Brown

    I'm high above the water now :-)



  34. Billy Payne

  35. Nick

    Ya'll realize he currently, and has for lived in Oklahoma for quite awhile. He is originally from Taft Tx which is ironic because it is a very Ghetto little town lol.

    Simply Me

    Fender1016 lol yes it is

    Josh W

    Fender1016. Doesnt matter where your from a Texan is A Texan no one can take that from you his music shows .. country boy for life

    Madison Tivis

    Are you implying Oklahoma isn't country lol

    Antonio Lopez

    Nick Harwood Texas is a shit hole my friend

  36. TheGamingAdepts

    Anyone else notice this sounds like a song about a guy committing suicide I mean , I am high above the water look at me fly(fall), didn't think twice must have been a long way down, devil said don't call me when the money is low, and the song says something about the free of fall(free fall off a bridge)

    Josh W

    TheGamingAdepts maybe you need some counsiling for your own issues

    Billy Skiles

    way off. listen. he is saying fuck you to daddy. i made it. bad ass song

  37. Ronald Collins

    This is a great Texas song....Mando Saenz from Corpus, now in Nashville (unfortunately) wrote this. He's a great writer. The intro is from some other song in past but cannot remember the song. Help

  38. Amber COLLINS

  45. Matthew Smithers

    Discovered this just in time. In an age when country has gone to Hell. This is genuine.


    Matthew Smithers Texas country wooooo

    Dusty Felker

    Matthew Smithers, I agree... when did country music turn into Britney Spears with a fiddle??

    Rage Reynolds

    Dusty Felker tf are you talking about? They don't even use fiddle. Aaron Lewis, Cody Jinks, Chris Stapleton, Whiskey Myers, Reckless Kelley, etc are all amazing

    Dusty Felker

    Rage Reynolds : I'm just saying that most pop country is crap. This guy's good. Take your pills and relax.

    Rage Reynolds

    Dusty Felker I know, i was naming guys in country music that are good. Pop country isn't but country still id

  46. Prosper Christmas Light Installation

    I'll catch you when the next sun comes around!   #ProsperRealtors  @Prosper Realty 

  47. Billy Skiles

    I agree with josh Anderson. I can't stop listening. I draw from the song a lifetime of emotions from my dad. Stone. You struck me deep on this one. Thank you. Keep doing what you you were made to do man.

  48. Turk Lee

    Stone .. y.

  49. ilse jacques

    I love everything about you stoney.

  50. rangersfan3210

  59. Treyintexas3

    Woohoo gonna see him on Saturday in Crosby!

  60. Hailey Blackburn

    Stoney isn't Texas Country...He's Red Dirt. Different but both equally good :)

  61. aron booth

    Regardless of where he was born, Stoney is a proud Okie. Kinda like ray Wylie Hubbard, he was born an Okie but is a proud Texan. Tornado alley country is what is should really be called... Dubbed by Jason Boland

    David Dennis

    And don't forget the Okie from Misccogie

  62. Shelby Hunter

    Lovin your music! keep up the good work! cant wait to see you at thunder on the mountain!

  63. balg91

    Texas country has the things that nashville country doesnt have Any more and that hip hop never had and that is heart and soul sweat and tears heartache and love

  64. jimNbec

    And it ain't Americana..its Texas artist playing red dirt.

  65. jimNbec

    One of the best..Brewster's Thursday night..oh hell yeah

  66. 68superchevy396

    Who the hell could thumbs down this?...... HATERS.

  67. Troublejunkie20

    well, this NY chick is loving Texas Country Music.

  68. mrsurestop

    Stoney LaRue (born Stoney Larue Phillips in 1977) is a Texas Country/Red Dirt artist, born in Taft, Texas.

  69. Ramsey Olivares

  76. Becky Mullins

  77. K Dennis

    Stoney aint to bad. Still hard to beat Corb Lund & the Hurtin Albertans tho.

  78. sooners2win

    I love Stoney, love Dierks also.....Old Dierks was much better, like wish it would break, bartenders barstools and barmaids, summer in galveston. Stoney music is staying Stoney! Dierks going mainstream......

  79. txbh890

    He was born in Taft, TX. I'll claim him for us.

  80. Dylan Wheeler


  81. Dylan Wheeler

  83. tristandeee

  87. Tyler

  88. sethrollins#1fan sethrollins#1fan


  89. John Cartwright

    punch, counter-punch.
    but with regards, a lot of great red dirt music we call Texas Country

  90. Brian Baumgartner

    Your right. It is pretty awesome to have and I for one am thankful

  91. atmadc68

    texas country is a sound..not a place so drop the debate

  92. txfireman1325

    I dont care where the singer comes from, as long as its not any Nashville crap. Texas, Oklahoma, hell Micky and the Motorcars and Reckless Kelly are from Idaho. Jerry Jeff Walker is from New York!

    Brian Marye

    txfireman1325 exactly. Whitey Morgan is from Detroit.

  93. SoundOfWhiteNoise1

    Hardly ! While O.K. has some heavy hitters, Texas is tops - and it only makes sense since we have a bigger music pool. We can start with George Strait on go on forever from there.

  94. fishycatfish

    Fuck you chicken fucker

  95. Jeremy Gough

    Doesn't matter where he comes from in my book. Hell he could be from New York but with music like this that contains heart and soul I'd continue to by into it.

  96. Prizymm Rone

    @zfitter Cody Johnson Band is the best in Texas Country
