Country Music Lyrics! Help!

We are having a laid-back country style reception following our ceremony.  One of the things we are doing is having country music lyrics posted throughout the reception site.  Here are the places we want to post them: Bar, Guest book/gift/card table, Cake table, Trail mix/snack bar table (we are having a trail mix bar, instead of a candy buffet), Kids table (we are having a short table or two for our little guests covered in paper, with crayons and activity books to keep their little hands occupied if they/the parents so choose), outside our photo booth, our "in memory/in honor of" table (in memory for our loved ones now in Heaven, and in honor for my FBIL who is serving in the Army and will be deployed during our wedding), in the restrooms, and for my sorority sisters (I'm providing sheet music flowers for my honorary music service sorority sisters, and our partnering fraternity brothers, to wear during the reception to recognize them and the bond we share).  Here are the lyrics we have so far for each.  Please let me know if you have any other thoughts, some of them we aren't crazy about!  Also, I know this isn't something that everyone would like or some of this ideas aren't things that everyone would do, but they are who my FI and I are, so please don't judge or criticize them, all I'm looking for is some song lyrics that would work!  Thanks!

Bar:  "You'll be my glass of wine, I'll be your shot of whiskey."  HoneyBee, Blake Shelton
Memory: "Losing them wouldn't be so hard to take, if Heaven wasn't so far away."  If Heven Wasn't So Far Away, Justin Moore
Honor: "Sometimes freedom makes it hard to live...I may never have to face the anger of those guns, or know the sacrifice of what it must have cost, for him to love me that much.  This is what brothers are for."  Brothers, Dean Brody
Guest Book: "A little table full of gifts...and the wedding band, well that's on her hand."  Love is a Beautiful Thing, Phil Vassar
Trail Mix: "You're so extraordinary, sweet like marashino cherries, we grew up and we got married." Huckleberry, Toby Keith
Cake: "So we planned it all out for the middle of June, from the wedding cake, to the honeymoon. " Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not, Thompson Square
Photo Booth: "All dressed up the day we said our vows...You should've seen it in color."  In Color, Jamey Johnson
Kid's Table: Nothing yet :(
Sorority/Fraternity: "It's a brother and a sister kind of thang, raise up your hands if you all wanna hang with me and my gang." Me and My Gang, Rascal Flatts OR "I'll be your shoulder when you need someone to lean on.  Be your shelter when you need someone to see you through, I'll be there to carry you."  I'll Be, Reba McEntire
Men's Restroom: "Ironed up a pearl snap, left that old ball cap, gave myself a little extra smell good splash."  Did It For The Girl, Greg Bates
Women's Restroom: "Anyone can tell you your pretty...but your beauty's deeper than the makeup."  Wanted, Hunter Hayes

Thanks, everyone!

    Love is a beutiful thing: I like Paul Brandt's version (It's a Beautiful Thing) over Phil Vassar's. I also really like stagemanager's suggestions. I like rascal flatt's song for the sorority/frat table.

    Here are some songs you should NOT do:
    All my exes live in Texas
    My drinking problem hank Williams 3
    Your cheating heart hank Williams
    Anything by David allen Coe
    Cocaine blues Johnny cash
    Candidate for suicide hank 3
    Hurt Johnny cash version
    I could go on all night, but I love all these songs.
