Undiscovered: 5 Toby Keith Songs We Think You’ll Love

Toby Keith has been writing with a sense of humor and a few divisive opinions since boisterously becoming a country music household name in the early 2000s. Today is his birthday, so we’re taking a look at five Toby Keith songs that you may have missed and will definitely love.

1. “Under The Fall” from Keith’s self-titled debut album is a clever song about getting over heartbreak.

“It’s gonna get bad before it gets better. You can cry and cry, but he still won’t call. It’s gonna get sad, maybe even sadder. But you’re not over the heartache, you’re still under the fall.”

2. “I Know a Wall When I See One” released in 1999 on Keith’s album, How Do You Like Me Now?! is about hitting the proverbial wall when trying to move on from heartbreak.

“The hurt had stopped. At least that’s what I thought. Up until what used to be walked in.”

3. “I Can’t Take You Anywhere” shows off Keith’s vocal range with thoughtful lyrical double-entendres from his 2001 album Pull My Chain.

“You’d think from all the tears I cried this broken-hearted pain, I wouldn’t have to carry you around with me. But it seems like everywhere I go somebody wants to know where you’ve been. Are you comin’ back again, I swear I can’t take you anywhere.”

4. “It Works For Me” from Keith’s 2002 album Unleashed is a fun and sweet ode to living the life you want.

“I’m livin’ my life under my terms. I’m callin’ the shots as far as I can see. I don’t owe nobody nothin,’ I don’t answer to a soul, might not work for you but it works for me.”

5. “Sweet” was released on Keith’s 2003 album Shock ‘N Y’all about that uptown girl that is always out of his reach.

“She got all those city boys out pushin’ and shovin’. A country boy like me don’t ever get no uptown lovin’. She’s sweet. She’s got ’em melting in her hand. Whoever gets a taste of that cup of sugar sure is a lucky man.”

Happy Birthday, Toby Keith!
