Track Name: High Class Woman
She's a high class woman
who walks the streets at night.
She dont ask for money
just your heart and soul.
Well her makeup hides her pain
as the streets call out her name.
She stans on that street
for all the boys to see.
If you want my advice, boy,
Stay away from her,
'cause she don't take cash...
Just your heart and soul.
She's wearing her bright red dress
for you tonight.
That red dress, still stained,
with blood from the past.
If you want my advice, boy,
stay away from her,
'cause she don't take cash,
just your blood and tears.
She's a high class woman
who walks the streets at night.
She dont ask for money
just your heart and soul.
Track Name: Working Man
Here's to the working man:
the man without a song.
Just the daily ring
of a hammer fit for two.
Well he breaks his back 'most every day
just for some man to say,
"Give me your payment due,
your hands are my hands, too."
Poor man rise up!
I know your day is long and hard.
Poor man rise up!
'Cause your place is here and now.
Well time is running short,
for a world that's running long.
One day when your voice is heard
this nation will finally know.
Broken, and beaten down,
that they are nothing without you.
Your voice will spread heart to heart.
This Union will never part.
This fight waged by the Man,
will end when the poor man stands.
your hands are my hands, too."
Poor man rise up!
I know your day is long and hard.
Poor man rise up!
'Cause your place is here and now.
Well time is running short,
for a world that's running long.
Track Name: Kentucky
Kentucky, my sweet gal,
please don't forget me,
'cause I'll see you soon.
Well the moonlight
it shines down
and draws close to you
from two states away.
Then the knife
well it slips through
the cold dark hands
and misery.
I'll never forget that night with you
kickin and screaming all night long.
I paid my respects,
and I did my time for you,
but now you're gone...
lord, I'll see you soon.
Well the judge
he slipped me a deal:
ninety years in the pen
to never see you again.
But you've been on my mind
for the past three years.
Won't you say your goodbyes,
'cause I'm coming for you.
I'll never forget that night with you
kickin and screaming all night long.
I paid my respects,
and I did my time for you,
but now you're gone...
lord, I'll see you soon.
Kentucky, my sweet gal,
please don't forget me..
'cause I'll see you soon.
Track Name: Cotton Fields
These cotton fields
are taking it's toll.
It's two souls down
and more to got.
My hands are bleeding
my heart is aching,
lord, lord, lord.
Well this river is rising
five feet tall
I hear "tap, tap, tap"
at my front door.
I take my two little boys
and float down the river
well it's, lord, lord, lord.
Well it's, lord, lord, lord,
make this day go by.
Well it's, lord, lord, lord,
just a one more day
so we could sing
hallelujah
hallelujah
well this rose is gonna
bloom on me
lord, lord, lord.
I made a dollar here
and a nickel there
working dawn from dusk
and day to day
but food on the table
and a roof overhead
and it's all we need.
Well it's all we need
to make this day go by
well it's all we need
just a one more day
so we could sing
hallelujah
hallelujah
this rose is gonna
bloom on me
lord, lord, lord
I light the candlesticks
as the sun goes down
take my two little boys
and gather 'round
we sing songs of joy
we sing songs of pain
and it's all we need.
Well it's all we need
to make this day go by.
Well it's all we need
just a one more day
so we could sing
hallelujah
hallelujah
well rose is gonna
bloom on me
one day well
lord, lord, lord
Track Name: Love 'em and Leave 'em
Well I'm driving hard
and I'm driving mean,
driving anything fast
just to get away from you,
get away from you.
And I'm going through the city
my foot on the pedal
ain't never going back
no never going back for you
no, not for you.
'Cause that ring around my finger
isn't getting any tighter now
and them balls around my heart
can't hold me down.
Well I love 'em,
and I leave 'em.
I leave their broken hearts
sitting next to the the bottles
I left them last night.
Well she begged me please
to bring that love and turn around
and come on back to her,
on back to her.
Well I was going through the city
my foot on the pedal
ain't never going back
no never going back for you
no, not for you.
'Cause that ring around my finger
isn't getting any tighter now
and them balls around my heart
can't hold me down.
Well I love 'em,
and I leave 'em.
I leave their broken hearts
sitting next to the the bottles
I left them last night.
Track Name: Blind Love
It was a trainwreck of silence
bustin' in my door
on a Saturday night.
They always told me I'd find the one
to hold me close at night,
but they never told me how it ends
Blind love from the blind side,
the dark side of the moon
a neverending dead end road
I would give anything
just to have my arms around you
see you smile at me
one last time
on that dead end road.
Good times, we had a few
she even tried to hold my hand
when we saw that band.
Sometimes, well she'd smile
and laugh with me,
but it didn't last long.
I don't know
why you can't be with me
And I don't know
why you say the things you say.
I tried my hardest
to bring you back to me,
but baby this time I'm gone.
Blind love from the blind side,
the dark side of the moon
a neverending dead end road
I would give anything
just to have my arms around you
see you smile at me
one last time
on that dead end road.
Track Name: Punk Rock is Dead
Well music today
ain't what it used to be
from country to punk rock, the same.
Good Charlotte plays too many chords
and Toby Keith couldn't cry in his beer.
Heard a song on the radio I didn't know
and they called it hit number one.
I shook my head and I turned it off
and now I got a hole in my dash,
'Cause I'm a punk rock kid in a country band
singing songs to the honky tonk crowd
Well I play it real loud and I sing it real proud
'cause I know that punk rock is dead.
My daddy grew up in them good ol' days
when they played on them silver strings.
When they shot them guns
and they drove them trucks,
and, yes, they cried in their beers.
Willie, Hank, and old Johnny Cash
are rebels, just the same
Even though they wore that cowboy hot
well they're more punk rock than me.
'Cause I'm a punk rock kid in a country band
singing songs to the honky tonk crowd
Well I play it real loud and I sing it real proud
'cause I know that punk rock is dead.
Track Name: Chains
I'm gonna take these chains and roll,
take these chains and roll on down the line.
Just give me a .45 and a bottle of gin
and I'm outta here.
Well that sun is going down on
that chain gang south of town
'cause, baby, I'm gonna make it outta here.
And that cop is looking down
from that horse he saddled up
'cause, baby, I'm gonna make it outta here.
Well I picked up my pride
that was laying on the ground
I took that sheriff's gun
pointed straight at his head
'cause I'm gonna make it outta here.
Well I'm running, running,
I'm gonna make it outta here.
Well I'm running, running,
I'm gonna make it outta here.
I'm gonna take these chains and roll,
take these chains and roll on down the line.
Just give me a .45 and a bottle of gin
and I'm outta here.
Track Name: Desperation Blues
There she was,
her silhouette
standing in that doorway
looking back at me
and I said, "ooooh."
I thought I got away
'cause I was outside
but, lord, would you know it,
she was right beside
And I said, "ooooh."
Well it's goodbye my baby
hey little baby, goodbye.
Made it to the truck
thought I was home,
home free.
There she was,
and I said, "ooooh."
Well it's goodbye my baby
hey little baby, goodbye.
Track Name: Burn it Down
She was wearing her high heeled pointy boots
here long legs pointed right at me.
It was all I could do to keep from cryin'
when her short skirt raised to praise the lord.
Me and her went out to raise some hell
all over town we rang them bells
with the throttle pulled back and our hearts on fire
we sang a song of our desire.
Well it's you and me 'til kingdom
saddle them boys and fire up the band
it's you and me going out on the town
gonna tear it up, gonna light it up,
gonna burn it down.
Her ma and pa slapped me silly
and kicked my ass outta town.
But I came back for my baby
and burned it all to the ground.
Well it's you and me 'til kingdom
saddle them boys and fire up the band
it's you and me going out on the town
gonna tear it up, gonna light it up,
gonna burn it down.
Gonna burn, gonna burn,
gonna burn it down.
Track Name: Float Away
I took that girl to the South Fourche River
led her on out of Danville town.
A dram of poison in her glass I did give her
and I watched her body float on down.
Float away, my lovely bride
drifing on that river wide.
Float away, down to the sea
for this awful thing you done to me.
I lost my leg in march of sixty four
a bullet from a damn yankee.
and then I found you married to that man
a big plantation owner's son.
When I'm done with you I'm gonna get him if I can
ride him down if he cuts and runs.
I took that girl to the South Fourche River
led her on out of Danville town.
A dram of poison in her glass I did give her
and I watched her body float on down.
Float away, my lovely bride
drifing on that river wide.
Float away, down to the sea
for this awful thing you done to me.
Track Name: Jaime Lee
There she was,
a silhouette in the doorway
looking back at me.
Why can't you go, why can't you stay,
why can't you leave?
She was yelling and sreaming
all over the house
throwing things at me.
Goodbye Jaime Lee, goodbye.
It was you not me
so baby don't feel to bad.
well you played me over once
and I know you'll try to do it again
this time, baby, well it's goodbye.
Grabbed my shirt and my favorite jeans
stepped away from her.
Why can't you go, why can't you stay,
why can't you leave?
And I was headed straight for the front door
when she stopped my and said
please don't go,
come back and stay with me.
Goodbye my baby
goodbye my baby,
goodbye, well baby, goodbye.
Goodbye Jaime Lee, goodbye.
It was you not me
so baby don't feel to bad.
Well you played me over once
and I know you'll try to do it again
this time, baby, well it's goodbye.
Track Name: One More Round
This bar's not as fun as it used to be
I said this bar's not as fun as it used to be.
I got in one too many fights and
one too many beers,
well this bar's not as fun as it used to be.
So give me one more round at the bar,
and give me one more beer for me,
just give me one last chance so I can say goodbye.
Well my fist it starts to shake
and my heart, it starts to break,
when I get a couple of beers for the night.So give me one more round at the bar,
and give me one more beer for me,
just give me one last chance so I can say goodbye.
Track Name: Project 14
I feel alone in a crowded room
whispers of a past gone by
eyes to the wall, my feet to the floor
praying for a friend to help me out.
Then the face to my right comes alive
reaches for the hand in my soul.
Get up off your feet and sing with me,
life's too short to let it pass you by.
We stand at the edge of the world
another friend he stands at our side
our minds clear as rain
and steady like the wind,
our voices fill the sky as one.
Just remember when you're looking around
that around, well it's looking at you.
'Cause when you cut it to it's core
we're all looking for
a friend to help us out.
