I have a table with the following example data:

object,value,timestamp
75721852,21620,2/1/15 3:02
75721852,22451,2/1/15 5:30
75721852,21621,2/2/15 3:07
75721852,22452,2/2/15 5:33
75721852,21621,2/3/15 3:07
75721852,22453,2/3/15 5:30
75721852,21622,2/4/15 3:04
75721852,22454,2/4/15 5:31
75721852,21623,2/5/15 3:00
75721852,22455,2/5/15 5:30
75721852,21623,2/6/15 3:00
75721852,22455,2/6/15 5:32
75721852,21624,2/7/15 3:04
75721852,22456,2/7/15 5:32
75721852,21624,2/8/15 3:04
75721852,22457,2/8/15 5:30
75721852,21625,2/9/15 3:09
75721852,22458,2/9/15 5:30

I need to query the timestamp field for a specific time of the month.  Any time I run it, I want it to query from the 8th of the current month back 5 days.

I'm sure there's a more elegant way to pull this off, but this should work..
Also, define for us further '8th of the month and back five days.   Does that mean the 3rd of the month beginning at midnight, running to the 8th of the month beginning at midnight?  
SELECT *
FROM YourTable
WHERE Timestamp >= CAST(CAST(YEAR(Getdate()) as char(4)) + '-' + RIGHT('0' + CAST(MONTH(GETDATE()) as varchar(2)), 2) + '-03' as date) AND 
Timestamp < CAST(CAST(YEAR(Getdate()) as char(4)) + '-' + RIGHT('0' + CAST(MONTH(GETDATE()) as varchar(2)), 2) + '-08' as date)

Hmm, when I understand you correctly:

 
DECLARE @Sample TABLE
    (
      [object] INT ,
      value INT ,
      [timestamp] DATETIME
    );
;

INSERT  INTO @Sample
VALUES  ( 75721852, 21620, '2/1/15 3:02' ),
        ( 75721852, 22451, '2/1/15 5:30' ),
        ( 75721852, 21621, '2/2/15 3:07' ),
        ( 75721852, 22452, '2/2/15 5:33' ),
        ( 75721852, 21621, '2/3/15 3:07' ),
        ( 75721852, 22453, '2/3/15 5:30' ),
        ( 75721852, 21622, '2/4/15 3:04' ),
        ( 75721852, 22454, '2/4/15 5:31' ),
        ( 75721852, 21623, '2/5/15 3:00' ),
        ( 75721852, 22455, '2/5/15 5:30' ),
        ( 75721852, 21623, '2/6/15 3:00' ),
        ( 75721852, 22455, '2/6/15 5:32' ),
        ( 75721852, 21624, '2/7/15 3:04' ),
        ( 75721852, 22456, '2/7/15 5:32' ),
        ( 75721852, 21624, '2/8/15 3:04' ),
        ( 75721852, 22457, '2/8/15 5:30' ),
        ( 75721852, 21625, '2/9/15 3:09' ),
        ( 75721852, 22458, '2/9/15 5:30' ),
        ( 75721852, 22458, '5/2/15 5:30' );

SELECT  *
FROM    @Sample S
WHERE   S.[timestamp] BETWEEN DATEADD(DAY, -DAY(GETDATE()) + 3, GETDATE()) AND DATEADD(DAY, -DAY(GETDATE()) + 8, GETDATE());

I'm have gotten the interval not correctly, but this depends what you really want. cause from the 8th back 5 is always 3rd to 7th day in my understanding. So maybe you need to adjust that.

hmm, as its SQL 2012, Jim should have used DATEFROMPARTS() instead of a casting show :)

Mercy.  My last exam I took was 2008, and we were on 2008 at my current client until just recently, so I'm displaying some lingering effects from that world.

I think you need to double check the time of day if using GETDATE() and merely deducting/adding days

getdate() returns both date and time, if you deduct 3 days the time portion is unchanged

Please compare these 2 results:

I'm not sure if you were expecting the time of day (other than 00:00:00)

note also that I never use between for date ranges.
