Sweetest Operator Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Ocean Drive

Hey you don't realise your strength
Sweet enough as you are don't change
To tell the truth
When I'm with you
Ain't nothing ever gonna let you down
The way you do the things you do
Ain't never ever gonna let you down
The way you do the things you do

I've got a feeling you could be sweetest operator
I've got that feeling
That's what you are
I've got a feeling you could be sweetest operator
I've got that feeling
That's what you are

Hey I don't recognize a soul
So I'll stick to the things I know
But I'm still looking for a way
To break the pattern of the everyday
And you could prove the very thing
The way you operate is such a relief now

I've got a feeling you could be sweetest operator
I've got that feeling
That's what you are
I've got a feeling you could be sweetest operator
I've got that feeling
That's what you are

It's effortless the way you make perfect sense
Of every word I ever spoke
And you refind the bitterness
Now I got a reason

What Could Be Better Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Ocean Drive

In the flow of life
Keeping an eye on tomorrow
I am happy half the time
I know you're searching for a touch of feeling
But you don't have the time
I know inside there's a better weather
And the world outside really doesn't matter
This love inside is a gentle colour
In the shade of our love
It's a subtle matter

Somebody smile at me like the sun
Somebody that smile at me
What could be better?

If there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
I'll be there on time
I've been let down before
I got up off the floor
It don't change my mind
Cause I know inside there's a better weather
And the world outside really doesn't matter
This love inside is a gentle colour
In the shade of our love
It's a subtle matter

Somebody smile at me like the sun
Somebody smile at me
What could be better?

We found it could be done
What could be better?
There's nothing close
We found it could be done
What could be better?
There's nothing close
Nothing close.

Beautiful Night Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Ocean Drive

There's a breeze in the air
There are stars in the sky
And I'm sure that there's bound to be a reason
Why we are here
But for now we will wonder at the evening sky

So come on baby
So come on baby
Give it to your heart's desire
So come on baby
So come on baby
Dig a little deeper down now

It's a beautiful night
Way up beyond the stars we are
You can stay all night here
It's a beautiful night

There's a song that I'm sure I've heard you singing
That I try hard to hear
It's a language of love, aha, in a way
That I don't know
It ain't loud
But it's coming over crystal clear

So come on baby
So come on baby
Give it to your heart's desire
So come on baby
So come on baby
Dig a little deeper down now

It's a beautiful night
Way up beyond the stars we are
You can stay all night here
It's a beautiful night

Goodbye Heartbreak Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Ocean Drive

Don't be blind
In all the fated life
Something great is happening in your life
But all the noise
Is drowning out your voice
No wonder you've been feeling down
From time to time
You know that you'll survive
The day you realise
You can't stop day from turning into night

Hey, you know you're gonna live
To find another day,
It's just today things ain't so good.
Get yourself back again,
You've got so much love
That you can't afford to lose

Goodbye Heartbreak
Don't look for me
'Cause I don't need you now
So long heartache
Don't look for me
'Cause I don't need you now.
I don't need you now
I don't need you now
I don't need you now
Hey
I don't need you now
I don't need you now
I don't need you now
Hey.

Do you remember as a girl,
You had a picture of the world
And you'd think about the great things you would find?
The thing is 9 to 5
And a struggle to survive
Ain't exactly what you had in mind.
But that's the beauty of life,
It takes a while to find,
And you can't have things your own way all the time

Hey, you know you're gonna live
To find another day,
It's just today things ain't so good.
Get yourself back again,
You've got so much love
That you can't afford to lose

Goodbye Heartbreak
Don't look for me
'Cause I don't need you now
So long heartache
Don't look for me
'Cause I don't need you now
I don't need you now
I don't need you now
I don't need you now
Hey
I don't need you now
I don't need you now
I don't need you now
Hey

Goodbye Heartbreak
Don't look for me
'Cause I don't need you now
So long heartache
Don't look for me
'Cause I don't need you now
I don't need you now
I don't need you now...
Ain't so good
That you can afford

Raincloud Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Postcards From Heaven

There ain't no point holding back the tide,
Still gonna get ya
'Cause every little bird's gotta learn to fly
Sooner or later
I don't wanna lose you,
Can't always do what you wanna do
There ain't no point holding back the tide,
Don't waste your time

'Cause everything is out there
And there's no limits out there
We could be reaching out for anything if we try enough

Let the daylight in on a better day
It's been too long we've been
Living under a raincloud

Daylight in on a better day
It's been too long we've been
Living under a raincloud

There ain't no point holding back desire,
Still gonna get ya
Strangers on a train driving through the night,
Soon overtakes ya
If someone feels the same as you,
Might as well just do what you wanna do
There ain't no point holding back desire,
Don't waste your time

'Cause everything is out there
And there's no limits out there
We could be reaching out for anything if we try enough

Let the daylight in on a better day
It's been too long we've been
Living under a raincloud

Daylight in on a better day
It's been too long we've been
Living under a raincloud

'Cause everything is out there
And there's no limits out there
We could be reaching out for anything if we try enough

Let the daylight in on a better day
It's been too long we've been
Living under a raincloud

Daylight in on a better day
It's been too long we've been
Living under a raincloud

Let the daylight in on a better day
It's been too long we've been
Living under a raincloud

Daylight in on a better day
It's been too long we've been
Living under a raincloud

Once In A Blue Moon Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Postcards From Heaven

Wishing we could choose our own landscape
Wishing me and you could just go anywhere we wanted
Once in a blue moon we'd stay out late
And watch the sun come up at five-thirty in the morning

Oh yeah, once in a blue moon

Day will surely come, one day I'll be with you
The day will surely come, we will make it all come true
The day will surely come

I ain't seen you, in a month of Sundays
I never knew exactly what it was I wanted
Once in a blue moon, you'd keep a promise
When it's you I don't mind such a long wait

Oh no, not when it's you

Day will surely come, one day I'll be with you
The day will surely come, we will make it all come true
The day will surely come

The day will surely come
The day will surely come
The day will surely come

Day will surely come, one day I'll be with you
The day will surely come, we will make it all come true
Day will surely come, one day I'll be with you
The day will surely come, we will make it all come true

Question Of Faith Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Postcards From Heaven

Can't see the truth in triggered words
Don't need a mountain for a wall
See the big old moon spin around the world
Somehow it makes me feel so small

I know I've been living the simple life, really that's the main thing
Nowadays nobody speaks about the way they feel about things
I know I need something to set me right, now it seems there's nothing
Nowadays nobody thinks about a way to ease the suffering

Baby I know you're the first thing
I believe in, honestly
How do you prove what you can't see?
Well, it's a question of faith
Baby I know you're the first thing
I believe in, honestly
Say you don't know enough about me
Well, it's a question of faith

Don't wanna complain, the weather could be worse
But I wish I'd learned from my mistakes
Don't really need no clever words
To understand what's in your face

I know I've been living the simple life, really that's the main thing
Nowadays nobody speaks about the way they feel about things
I know I need something to set me right; now it seems there's nothing
Nowadays nobody thinks about a way to ease the suffering

Baby I know you're the first thing
I believe in, honestly
How do you prove what you can't see?
Well, it's a question of faith
Baby I know you're the first thing
I believe in, honestly
Say you don't know enough about me
Well, it's a question of faith

Let It All Change Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Postcards From Heaven

I watch the sun go down when, there's nothing in the way
I love the moon light on the Meditterean
Sometimes we catch a glimpse of perfect happiness
So we don't treat it like, a heavy thing
And it all goes up in smoke

Let it all change
You know that some things worth hanging onto, anyway
Let it all change
You know it's strong after everything we've been through, anyway

We don't go around pretending everything is great
It ain't no secret, I think it's 'cause we're such good friends
Sometimes we catch a glimpse of perfect happiness
It's when you try to have everything
That it all goes up in smoke

Let it all change
You know that some things worth hanging onto, anyway
Let it all change
You know it's strong after everything we've been through, anyway

It's when you try to have everything
That it all goes up in smoke
Let it all change
You know that some things worth hanging onto, anyway
Let it all change
You know it's strong after everything we've been through, anyway

Let it all change
Let it all change
Let it all change
Let it all change
Let it all change....

Sun In The Night Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Postcards From Heaven

How many times in your life have you ever had the feeling
That the way you live is crazy and there must be something else
When you look at the sky does it ever cross your mind
There could be something you've forgotten that won't ever go away

Like the sun in the night
Like the sun in the night
You'll always be with me baby.. be in my soul
You'll always be with me, wherever I go

Gets too much after a while trying to always hide your feelings
When the world is going crazy and you keep it to yourself
How much it hurts, though you try, try to get on with your life
And tell yourself that worse things happen and just hope it goes away

Like the sun in the night
Like the sun in the night
You'll always be with me baby.. be in my soul
You'll always be with me, wherever I go

Like the sun in the night
Like the sun in the night
You'll always be with me baby.. be in my soul
You'll always be with me, wherever I go

High Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Postcards From Heaven

When you're close to tears remember
Some day it'll all be over
One day we're gonna get so high
And though it's darker than December
What's ahead is a different colour
One day we're gonna get so high

And at
The end of the day
remember the days
When we were close to the edge
And we'll wonder how we made it through the night
The end of the day
remember the way
We stayed so close till the end
We'll remember it was me and you

'Cause we are gonna be forever you and me
You will always keep me flying high in the sky of love

Don't you think it's time you started
Doing what we always wanted
One day we're gonna get so high
'Cause even the impossible
is easy when we got each other
One day 'we're gonna get so high

And at
The end of the day
remember the days
when we were close to the edge
And we'll wonder how we made it through the night
The end of the day
remember the way
We stayed so close to till the end
We'll remember it was me and you.

'Cause we are gonna be forever you and me
You will always keep me flying high in the sky of love [x2]

High, high, high, high. [x2]

And at
The end of the day
remember the days
when we were close to the edge
And we'll wonder how we made it through the night
The end of the day
remember the way
We stayed so close to till the end
We'll remember it was me and you.

'Cause we are gonna be forever you and me
You will always keep me flying high in the sky of love [x3]

Lost In Space Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Postcards From Heaven

Sometimes I get tired of this me-first attitude
You are the one thing that keeps me smiling
That's why I'm always wishing hard for you

'Cause your light shines so bright
I don't feel no solitude
You are my first star at night
I'd be lost in space without you

And I'll never lose my faith in you
How will I ever get to heaven, if I do

Feels just so fine
When we touch the sky me and you
This is my idea of heaven
Why can't it always be so good?

But it's all right, I know you're out there
Doing what you've gotta do
You are my soul satellite
I'd be lost in space without you

And I'll never lose my faith in you
How will I ever get to heaven, if I do

And I'll never lose my faith in you
How will I ever get to heaven, if I do

And I'll never lose my faith in you
How will I ever get to heaven, if I do

And I'll never lose my faith in you
How will I ever get to heaven, if I do

And I'll never lose my faith in you
How will I ever get to heaven, if I do

When I Was Younger Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Postcards From Heaven

When I was younger
I seem to remember
Holding a finger while walking to
Mother standing

By ten I could tell her
"I'll love you forever
And I'll tread on the stars just to be with you
Notwithstanding"

When staring into her naked face
Yes, I wished my eyes would never stray

She said why cry little baby
Why cry yeh yeh
Why cry pretty baby
Wipe your eyes yeh yeh

Now I am older
I don't sit on her shoulder
To gaze over worlds that are lower to
The higher standing

Instead I'm staring into your ageless face
Yes, and I wish my eyes will never stray

So why cry little baby
Why cry yeh yeh
Why cry pretty baby
Wipe your eyes yeh yeh

Why should you worry
You know there'll be an answer
When you call
So don't you push or be in a hurry
'Cause learning how to stand
Is why you fall

When I was younger
I seem to remember
Holding a finger while walking to
Mother standing

Restless Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Postcards From Heaven

When I first met you I thought
I ain't searching any more
'Cause we've got everything
I've been looking for
And now I'm not so sure
I can be who you want
There'll always be a part of me
Wondering

I'm just a lost soul looking for my home
I'm just a lost soul looking for my home

When I learnt that you had gone
For a week I carried on
Until the truth that dawn dawned on me
Hit me like a stone
And it's taken me so long
To know where I went wrong
You always make the same mistakes
Until you learn

I'm just a lost soul looking for my home
I'm just a lost soul looking for my home

Postcard From Heaven Lyrics

Artist : LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY
Album : Postcards From Heaven

If you never say goodbye
To the best thing in your life
There are things you don't appreciate
At all

So it's best that you don't try
Holding back the time
Are you ever gonna be
Quite satisfied

Postcard from heaven
Go to where you belong
Never find the perfect situation
Untill you know where you're from

If you ever say goodbye
No regrets, I won't ask why
And I wish you all the best luck
In the world

Should you ever change your mind
Holding back the sunshine
Are you ever gonna be
Quite satisfied

Postcard from heaven
Go to where you belong
Never find the perfect situation
Untill you know where you're from

Postcard from heaven
Go to where you belong
Never find the perfect situation
Untill you know where you're from

Postcard from heaven
Go to where you belong
Never find the perfect situation
Untill you know where you're from

I Ain't The One Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : (pronounced 'leh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd)

Well, I'll tell you plainly baby
What I plan to do
'Cause I may be crazy baby
But I ain't no fool
Your daddy's rich, mama
You're overdue
But I ain't the one, baby
Been messing with you
Got bells in your mind, mama
So won't you pardon me
I think its time for me to move along
I do believe

Now you're talking jive, woman
When you say to me
Your daddy's gonna take us in baby
'N take care of me
You know and I know, woman
I ain't the one
I never hurt you sweet heart
I never pulled my gun
Got bells in your mind, baby
So won't you pardon me?
I think its time for me to move along
I do believe
Time for me to put my boots out in the street baby
Are you ready boots -- walk on

All right there missy, let me tell you a thing or two
Now you're talking jive, woman
When you say to me
Your daddy's gonna take us in baby
'N take care of me
When you know and I know, woman
I ain't the one
That ain't my idea -- uh unh -- of having fun
Got rings in your eyes lady
So won't you pardon me
I think its time for me to move along
I do believe
I must be in the middle of some kind of conspiracy

Tuesday's Gone Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : (pronounced 'leh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd)

Train roll on, on down the line,
Won't you please take me far away?
Now I feel the wind blow outside my door,
Means I'm leaving my woman behind.
Tuesday's gone with the wind.
My woman's gone with the wind.

And I don't know where I'm going.
I just want to be left alone.
Well, when this train ends I'll try again,
But I'm leaving my woman at home.

[chorus]
Tuesday's gone with the wind.
Tuesday's gone with the wind.
Tuesday's gone with the wind.
My woman's gone with the wind.

Train roll on many miles from my home,
See, I'm riding my blues away.
Tuesday, you see, she had to be free
But somehow I've got to carry on.

[chorus]

Gimme Three Steps Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : (pronounced 'leh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd)

I was cutting the rug
Down at a place called The Jug
With a girl named Linda Lu
When in walked a man
With a gun in his hand
And he was looking for you know who.
He said, "Hey there fellow,
With the hair colored yellow,
Watcha tryin' to prove?
'Cause that's my woman there
And I'm a man who cares
And this might be all for you."

I was scared and fearing for my life.
I was shakin' like a leaf on a tree.
'Cause he was lean, mean,
Big and bad, Lord,
Pointin' that gun at me.
I said, "Wait a minute, mister,
I didn't even kiss her.
Don't want no trouble with you.
And I know you don't owe me
But I wish you'd let me
Ask one favor from you."

[Chorus]
"Won't you give me three steps,
Gimme three steps mister,
Gimme three steps towards the door?
Gimme three steps
Gimme three steps mister,
And you'll never see me no more."

Well the crowd cleared away
And I began to pray
As the water fell on the floor.
And I'm telling you son,
Well, it ain't no fun
Staring straight down a forty-four.
Well he turned and screamed at Linda Lu
And that's the break I was looking for.
And you could hear me screaming a mile away
As I was headed out towards the door.

[Chorus]

Simple Man Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : (pronounced 'leh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd)

Mama told me when I was young
Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say.
And if you do this
It will help you some sunny day.
Take your time... Don't live too fast,
Troubles will come and they will pass.
Go find a woman and you'll find love,
And don't forget son,
There is someone up above.

[Chorus]
And be a simple kind of man.
Be something you love and understand.
Be a simple kind of man.
Won't you do this for me son,
If you can?

Forget your lust for the rich man's gold
All that you need is in your soul,
And you can do this if you try.
All that I want for you my son,
Is to be satisfied.

[Chorus]

Things Goin' On Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : (pronounced 'leh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd)

Have you ever lived down in the ghetto?
Have you ever felt the cold wind blow?
If you don't know what I mean,
Won't you stand up and scream?
'Cause there's things goin' on that you don't know.

Too many lives they've spent across the ocean.
Too much money been spent upon the moon.
Well, until they make it right
I hope they never sleep at night
They better make some changes
And do it soon.

They're goin ruin the air we breathe
Lord have mercy.
They're gonna ruin us all, by and by.
I'm telling you all beware
I don't think they really care
I think they just sit up there
And just get high.

Poison Whiskey Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : (pronounced 'leh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd)

Daddy was a Cajun, raised on Southern land
And so my kinfolks tell me, was a street-fightin' man.
Well, they rushed him down to see the doctor
"Hey doctor, won't you check his head?"
The only thing that was wrong with him
Was Johnny Walker's Red
He drank ole poison whiskey
'Til it killed him dead.

It happened back in the bayou many years ago
Satan came to take him and he did it real slow
Well, they rushed him back to see the doctor
The doctor just shook his head,
"Twenty years of rotgut whiskey
Done killed the poor man dead."
He drank ole poison whiskey
'Til it killed him dead.

Take a tip from me, people... brothers can't you see
Ain't no future in ole poison whiskey.
They're gonna rush you down to see the doctor,
The doctor's gonna shake his head.
The only thing he's gonna tell ya
"Stop drinkin' Johnny Walker's Red
Don't drink poison whiskey, don't you drink it boy.

Freebird Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : (pronounced 'leh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd)

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.

Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I can't change.
But please don't take it badly,
'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Lord help me, I can't change.

Sweet Home Alabama Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Second Helping

Big wheels keep on turning
Carry me home to see my kin
Singing songs about the Southland
I miss Alabamy once again
And I think its a sin, yes

Well I heard mister Young sing about her
Well, I heard ole Neil put her down
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

In Birmingham they love the gov' nor
Now we all did what we could do
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you?
Tell the truth

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Here I come Alabama

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they've been known to pick a song or two
Lord they get me off so much
They pick me up when I'm feeling blue
Now how about you?

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

Sweet home Alabama
Oh sweet home baby
Where the skies are so blue
And the guv'nor's true
Sweet Home Alabama
Lordy
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Yea, yea Montgomery's got the answer

I Need You Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Second Helping

Ain't no need to worry
Ain't no use to cry
'Cause I'll be comin' home soon
To keep you satisfied
You know I get so lonely
That I feel I can't go on
And it feels so good inside, baby
Just to call you on the telephone
I said...

[Chorus]
Oh baby, I love you
What more can I say
Oh baby, I need you
I miss you more everyday

I woke up early this morning
And sun came shining down
And it found me wishin' and hopin'
Mama, you could be around
Well ,you know that I need you
More than the air that I breathe
And I guess I'm just trying to tell you woman
Oh, what you mean to me

[Chorus]

I try to tell you I love you
In each and every way
I'm trying to tell you I need you
Much more than a piece of leg

[Chorus]

Oh baby, I love you
What more can I say
Oh baby I need your sweet lovin
I miss you more every day

Don't Ask Me No Questions Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Second Helping

Well everytime that I come home nobody wants to let me be
It seems that all the friends I got just got to come interrogate me
Well, I appreciate your feelings and I don't want to pass you by
But I don't ask you about your business, don't ask me about mine

Well its true I love the money and I love my brand new car
I like drinkin' the best of whiskey and playing in a honky tonk bar
But when I come off the road, well I just got to have my time
'Cause I got to find a break in this action, else I'm gonna lose my mind

[Chorus]
So, don't ask me no questions
And I won't tell you no lies
So, don't ask me about my business
And I won't tell you goodbye

That's right

Well, "what's your favorite color and do you dig the brothers," is drivin' me up a wall
And everytime I think I can sleep, some fool has got to call
Well don't you think that when I come home, I just want a little peace of mind
If you want to talk about the business buddy, you're just wastin' time

[Chorus]

I said don't ask no stupid questions and I won't send you away
If you want to talk fishin, well I guess that'll be OK

Workin' For MCA Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Second Helping

Seven years of hard luck, comin' down on me
From the Florida border, yea up to Nashville Tennessee
I worked in every joint you can name, mister every honkytonk
Along come Mr Yankee Slicker, sayin' maybe you're what I want

[Chorus]
Want you to sign your contract
Want you to sign today
Gonna give you lots of money
Workin' For MCA

9000 dollars, that's all we could win
But we smiled at the Yankee Slicker with a big ol' Southern grin
They're gonna take me out to California gonna make me a superstar
Just pay me all of my money and mister maybe you won't get a scar

[Chorus]

Suckers took my money since I was seventeen
If it ain't no pencil pusher, it got to be a honkytonk queen
But I'll sign my contract baby, and I wan't you people to know
That every penny that I make, I'm gonna see where my money goes

[Chorus]

The Ballad Of Curtis Loew Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Second Helping

Well I used to wake the morning before the rooster crowed
Searching for soda bottles to get myself some dough
Brought 'em down to the corner, down to the country store
Cash 'em in and give my money to a man named Curtis Loew

Old Curt was a black man with white curly hair
When he had a fifth of wine he did not have a care
He used to own an old dobro, used to play it across his knee
I'd give old Curt my money, he'd play all day for me

[Chorus]
Play me a song Curtis Loew, Curtis Loew
I got your drinking money, tune up your dobro
People said he was useless, them people are the fools
'Cause Curtis Loew was the finest picker to ever play the blues

He looked to be sixty, and maybe I was ten
Mama used to whip me but I'd go see him again
I'd clap my hands, stomp my feets, try to stay in time
He'd play me a song or two
Then take another drink of wine.

[Chorus]

Yes sir

On the day old Curtis died, nobody came to pray
Ol' preacher said some words, and they chunked him in the clay
But he lived a lifetime playin' the black man's blues
And on the day he lost his life, that's all he had to lose

Play me a song Curtis Loew, Hey Curtis Loew
I wish that you was here so everyone would know
People said he was useless, them people all are fools
'Cause Curtis you're the finest picker to ever play the blues

Swamp Music Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Second Helping

Going down to the swamp
Gonna watch me a hound dog catch a 'coon
Well, I'm going down to the swamp
Gonna watch me a hound dog catch a 'coon
You know the hounddog make-a music
On a summer night under a full moon

Lord, fetch my cane pole mama
Gonna catch a bream or maybe two
Lord, fetch my cane pole mama
Gonna catch a bream or maybe two
And when the hound dog start barkin'
Sounds like ol' Son House singin' the blues

[chorus]
Hound dog sing that
Swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music
Swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music
When the hound dog starts singin'
I ain't got them big ol' city blues

Well, hey pretty mama
Lord, just take that city hike
Said go ahead pretty mama
Lord, just take your city hike
Well, I'd rather live with the hound dogs
For the rest of my natural born life

[chorus]
Singing that
Swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music
Swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music
Well, I'd rather live with the hounddogs
For the rest of my natural born life
Well, I'd wanna live with the hound dogs
For the rest of my natural born life

Call me the breeze
I keep blowin' down the road
Well now they call me the breeze
I keep blowin' down the road
I ain't got me nobody
I don't carry me no load

Ain't no change in the weather
Ain't no changes in me
Well there ain't no change in the weather

And I ain't hidin' from nobody
Nobody's hidin' from me
Oh, that's the way its supposed to be

Well I got that green light baby
I got to keep movin' on
Well I got that green light baby
I got to keep movin' on
Well I might go out to California
Might go down to Georgia
I don't know

Well I dig you Georgia peaches
Makes me feel right at home
Well now I dig you Georgia peaches
Makes me feel right at home
But I don't love me no one woman
So I can't stay in Georgia long

Well now they call me the breeze

Well now they call me the breeze
I keep blowin' down the road
I ain't got me nobody

The Needle And The Spoon Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Second Helping

Thirty days, lord and thirty nights
I'm comin' home on an airplane flight
Mama waitin' at the ticket line
Tell me son why do you stand there cryin'

[chorus]
It was the needle and the spoon
And a trip to the moon
Took me away, took me away

I've been feelin' so sick and tired
Got to get better, lord before I die
Seven doctors couldn't help my head, they said
You better quit, son before your dead

[chorus]
Quit the needle. Quit the spoon
Quit the trip to the moon
We gonna take you away. Lord, we gonna take you away

[spoken]
It was the needle and the spoon

I've seen a lot of people who thought they were cool
But then again, lord I've seen a lot of fools
Well, I hope you people, lord can hear what I say
You'll have your chance to hit it some day

[chorus]
Don't mess with the needle or a spoon
Or any trip to the moon
It'll take you away

Lord, their gonna bury you boy
Don't mess with the needle
Now I know, I know, I know...

Saturday Night Special Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Nuthin' Fancy

Two feets they come a creepin'
Like a black cat do
And two bodies are lyin' naked
Creeper think he got nothin' to lose
So he creeps into this house, yeah
And unlocks the door
And while a man reaching for his trousers
Shoots him full of .38 holes

[Chorus]
Its a Saturday night special
Got a barrel that's blue and cold
Ain't no good for nothin'
But put a man six feet in a hole

Big Jim's been drinkin' whiskey
And playing poker on a losin' night
Pretty soon, Big Jim starts a thinkin'
Somebody been cheatin' and lyin'
So Big Jim commences to fightin'
I wouldn't tell you no lie
And Big Jim done grab his pistol
Shot his friend right between the eyes

[Chorus]

Hand guns are made for killin'
Ain't no good for nothin' else
And if you like your whiskey
You might even shoot yourself
So why don't we dump 'em people
To the bottom of the sea
Before some fool come around here
Wanna shoot either you or me

I'm A Country Boy Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Nuthin' Fancy

New York City is a thousand miles away
And if you ask me, I'll tell you that's OK
Now I'm not trying to put the big apple down
'Cause they don't need a man like me in town
I pick cotton down on the Dixie line
Work hard all day tryin' to make a dime
But that's allright, that's OK by me
'Cause that's the way that it was meant to be

Big city, hard times don't bother me
I'm a country boy, I'm as happy as I can be

I don't like smoke chokin' up my air
And some of those city folks well they don't care
I don't like cars buzzing around
I don't even want a piece of concrete in my town
I like sunshine, fresh clean air
Makes me feel like you wouldn't care but
that's all right, each to his own
But one smell from the city
And this country boy is gone
Big city, hard times don't bother me
I'm a country boy, I'm as happy as I can be

Well, I don't want to even read about it

Let me tell you something, let me tell you true
What's right for me might not be right for you
Well, you live your way, I'll live mine
And I hope that your happy all the time
I pick cotton down on the Dixie line
Work hard all day tryin' to make a dime
But that's all right, that's OK by me
'Cause that's the way that it was supposed to be

Big city, hard times never bother me
I'm a country boy, I'm as happy as I can be

Let me tell ya, ... I said
Big city, hard times never bother me
I'm a country boy, I'm as happy as I can be
Ooh, that's my way, baby
I don't want you to even tell me about the big city
I don't want to read about it...

Cheatin' Woman Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Nuthin' Fancy

Cheatin woman make you crazy
Cheatin' woman make you a fool
She'll leave your heart so lonely
Brother there's nothin' you can do
Well I can't stand the pain no more
She don't want my love for sure
She don't even want poor me
Knockin' on her front door

Why did you make me love you sister
When you knew you was untrue
You loved every man with pants on
Yes a dozen to you is too few
I'm gonna shoot you and end your world
Then you won't bother poor me
You won't bother poor me no longer

Cheatin' woman -- gonna shoot ya

Oh woman why you do me
Oh Lord the way you do
I done everything I can baby
Seems like nothin' reaches you
I'm gonna get that pistol gal
I'm gonna shoot you and all your pals
You ain't gonna bother poor me
You won't bother poor me no longer

Am I Losin'? Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Nuthin' Fancy

I recall when I used to come home never had a dime
But Lord I always had a good time
And I recall drinkin' wine with one of my friends
Lord, I can't go back again

[Chorus]
Am I losin' my own way back home
Am I losin' a good friend that I've known
Am I losin' won't you tell me how I've sinned
Why am I losin one of my bets friends

And I recall this friend of mine I knew so well
It goes to show Lord you just can't tell
Now my friend won't talk to me Let me tell you why
he thinks I 've changed because of a dollar sign

[Chorus]

And its so strange when you get just a little money
Your so called friends want to act just a little funny
They'll blame you

But I'm not the one that's here to blame
Its you my friend that's really changed
Its a shame, such a shame
Am I losin' once again

Why these things happen, Lord I don't understand
But Lord it can sure hurt a man
Why my friend won't take me as I am
'Cause your friend Lord is the most important thing

[Chorus]

I said baby mama, I don't know your name
But I said baby, sugar I can play your game
Every night when we leave the hall
I see you hanging around
You wanna ride in my big black car baby
Wanna go uptown

Let me say one thing mama, sugar I do as I please
And if you wanna love me baby, I'm your man
And all those high-falutin' society people

Said there's two things son
Two things you should know
And in these two things you must take pride
That's a horse and woman, yeah
Well both of them you ride

Railroad Song Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Nuthin' Fancy

I jumped off a boxcar down around Tennessee
I was cold tired and dirty hungry as I could be
But I had my guitar and a hundred railroad songs
So I asked the policeman
Can I stay here long
He said Mr. Hobo you got to go now
We don't want you around
See I'm trying to build a respectable town
And we don't need a hobo like you around

So I left that town, Lord with my guitar in my hand
Still cold and tired, kinda mad at the man
But this life that I chose to live, sometime's strange
See I'm trying to learn about the old music from ridin' the train
I'm a hobo I know, but thta's the price I pay
Guess I'll write me another song while I'm on my way
Catch me another train and this is what I'll say
Mr Choo-choo train take me away

I'm goin' to ride this train Lord until I find out
What Jimmie Rogers and the Hag was all about
See I play this rock n roll and I think that's fine
But I wnta to go back a little further in time
I'm a hobo I know but that's the price I pay
Guess I'll write me another song while I'm on my way
Catch me another train and this is what I'll say
Mr Choo-choo train take me away

Album : Nuthin' Fancy

"Well when I was a young-un they used to teach me to play music like this here..."

When I look in your face baby
When I look in your eyes
I can tell pretty mama I been wastin' time
'Cause you don't really love me
You just love me for what I am
But you best treat me right, woman
Gonna lose your money man

Well when I first met you baby, you was a red light girl
But I tried to take you to better world
But you would not listen
Still you think I am a fool
Well you had it made in the shade, baby
Don't let that tree fall down on you

Well I work the railroad each and every day
Well I work real hard tryin' to make my pay
Lord I never tell you what you supposed to say
Girl you had it made in the shade
Don't let that tree fall down on you

Whiskey Rock A Roller Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Nuthin' Fancy

I'm headed down a highway got a suitcase by my side
Blue skies hangin' over my head I got 500 miles to ride
I'm goin' down to Memphis town to play a latenight show
I hope the people are ready there 'cause the boys are all ready to go

[Chorus]
Well, I'm a whiskey rock-a-roller
That's what I am
Women, whiskey and miles of travellin'
Is all I understand

I was born a travellin' man and my feets do burn the ground
I don't care for fancy music if your shoes can't shuffle around
I got a 100 women or more and there's no place I call home
The only time I'm satisfied is when I'm on the road

[Chorus]
Sometimes I wonder where will we go

Lord don't take my whiskey, rock and roll
Take me down to Memphis town, busdriver get me there
I got me a queenie she got longbrown curly hair
She likes to drink Old Grandad and her shoes do shuffle around
And everytime I see that gal
Lord she wants to take me down

[Chorus]
Sometimes I wonder where will we go
Lord don't take my whiskey, rock and roll

Album : Gimme Back My Bullets

Life is so strange when its changin', yes indeed
Well I've seen the hard times and the pressure's been on me
But I keep on workin' like the workin' man do
And I've got my act together, gonna walk all over you

[chorus]
Gimme back my bullets
Put 'em back where they belong
Ain't foolin' around 'cause I done had my fun
Ain't gonna see no more damage done
Gimme back my bullets

Sweet talkin' people done ran me out of town
And I drank enough whiskey to float a battleship around
But I'm leavin' this game one step ahead of you
And you will not hear me cry 'cause I do not sing the blues

[chorus]
Gimme back my bullets
Put 'em back where they belong
Ain't foolin' around 'cause I done had my fun
Ain't gonna see no more damage done
Gimme back, gimme back my bullets
Oh, put 'em back... where they belong

Been up and down since I turned seventeen
Well I've been on top, and then it seems I lost my dream
But I got it back, I'm feelin' better everyday
Tell all those pencil pushers, better get out of my way

[chorus]
Gimme back my bullets
Put 'em back where they belong
Ain't foolin' around, 'cause I done had my fun
Ain't gonna see no more damage done
Gimme back, gimme back my bullets
Oh put 'em back where they belong
Gimme back my bullets

Every Mother's Son Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Gimme Back My Bullets

Well I've been ridin' a winning horse for a long, long time
Sometimes I wonder is this the end of the line
No one should take advantage of who they are
No man has got it made
If he thinks he does, he's wrong

[chorus]
Every mother's son better hear what I say
Every mother's son will rise and fall someday

I've seen it happen so many times, so many times before
Some man got so much money he doesn't worry no more
Or he's got such a pretty woman that'll treat him fine
Well my friend has been a fool
It happens everytime

[chorus]

I'm not tryin' to preach to no one, to no one at all
I've seen so many of my good friends just rise to fall
'Cause they got so much money or a woman so fine
Well my friends have all been fools, it happens every time

[chorus]

What I say

[chorus]

What I say
Oh, every mother's son will rise and fall someday

Trust Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Gimme Back My Bullets

I'd like to tell y'all a story
About a friend of mine
Who liked to drink good whiskey, oh Lord
And have a real good time
His woman, you know she left him
And stole that boy's brand new car
And ran out of town with a guitar picker
Said he gonna be a superstar
Sure you are

[Chorus]
You can't alway trust your woman
You can't always trust your best friend
Beware of the ones that you need y'all
'Cause those might be the ones that do you in

Don't talk no stuff to no slicker
Don't tell your feelings to your friend
Don't tell your woman that you love her, because
That's when your trouble begins
There are many ladies here among us
That'll stab you in the back when you ain't around
There are many, so many of your very best friends
That'll kick you in the head when you are down
Yes they will

[Chorus]

Don't you backtalk the police
'Cause its his job to put you in the jail
They'll lock you up, boy and throw away the key
And your best friend won't even go your bail
There are many slickers here among us
That are all dressed up in suits and ties
But don't you show your pain, Lord in front of them
'Cause if you do you kiss yourself goodbye, alright

[Chorus]

Cry For The Bad Man Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Gimme Back My Bullets

Well he walks so tall to be so small
Never met a man who's stranger
He lives his life for a dollar sign
And to deal with him is dangerous
He knocked me down but I'm on my feet
Now I'm so much wiser
I'd rather quit and go back home
Than to deal with the money miser
Let's cry for this bad man
I sing a song for the bad man

Well, you treat me right baby, I'll treat you right
That's the way its supposed to be
I put my faith down in my friend
And he almost put an end to me
Well I work seven days a week
Eight when I am able
When you take money from me you take food from my mama's table
Let's cry for this bad man
I wrote a song for the bad man

Oh baby you know who you are

Let's cry for this bad man
I wrote a song for the bad man way down in Georgia

Well, you treat me right baby, I'll treat you right
That's the way its supposed to be
I put my faith down in my friend
And he almost put an end to me
Well, when you take my money baby when you hurt my family
I go walkin' through the swamps without no shoes
Step on a snake it scares you
Let's cry for this bad man
I wrote a song for the bad man
Oh let's cry for this bad man
I wrote a song for the bad man

Oh baby straight to you
He's so bad, so bad

Some of the times I been there nobody could go my bail

Spent ninety days on a peat farm just doin' the county's time
Well now, even mama said Son you're bad news
And it won't be too long before someone puts one through you

Roll Gypsy Roll Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Gimme Back My Bullets

Ridin' on a greyhound, countin' those white lines
Destination I don't know and I'm feelin' like I'm dyin'
Well ten years on this road, my its took its toll
But the man with the plan says the band has got to go
I said roll gypsy roll
Lord just pick up your bags and go

Met many a woman on my way down the line
Every woman that I met I left satisfied
I made lots of money, just how much I don't know
But most of the money I done stuck up my nose
I said roll gypsy roll
Lord just pick up your bags and go

Gypsy's life's a story and its one that's never told
He's always hungry, he's always on the go
With no tomorrow, its how it seems to be
When you're moving around from town to town

Made lots of money just how much I don't know
But most of the money I done stuck up my nose
And maybe that's the reason I don't know where I'm going
I don't know

I asked the wiseman one sunny day
Can you help me find my way
You're so much older and wiser too
Would you help me mr wiseman
I'm feelin' blue
Oh I'm not satisfied

He said you're not doin too bad, not bad at all
You're just trying to walk son before you can crawl
You got stacks of money to sky up above
Now all you need is to find you a love

He sent me searchin' to find my love
He sent me searchin' to the Lord up above
He sent me searchin' just to find the mornin' dove
And she'll tell you where to find your love
Oh mr wiseman I need to find my love

You can have anything in this god's world
But you won't be happy son 'til you find a girl
Now you can be happy boy if you try
Find a woman boy, you'll be satisfied

He sent me searchin' to find my love
He sent me searchin' , I said Lord up above
He sent me searchin' just to find the mornin' dove
And she'll tell you where to find your love

He sent me searchin' to find my love
He sent me searchin' , I said Lord up above
He sent me searchin' just to find the mornin' dove
And she'll tell you where to find your love

Oh Lord, he sent me searchin'

I Got The Same Old Blues Lyrics

Album : Gimme Back My Bullets

Have you heard that rumor that's goin' around
My baby's got a man, lord way across town
Its the same old story
Tell me where will it end
Yes I heard the news its the same old blues again

Well I wrote you a letter, must have read it wrong
Stood at the doorway and baby you was gone
Took a lot of courage
To let the telephone ring
I got the same old blues, same old blues again

Well you gave me the business, though I didn't mind
'Cause I got a lot of patience, Lord got a lot of time
Its the same old story
Tell me where will it end
I got the same old blues, same old blues again
Here come my blues

Gonna find me a mountain and gonna hide out
Ain't talkin' to you babe, Lord I ain't comin' back
Well I heard that rumor, tell where will it end
I got the same old blues, same old blues again

Have you heard that rumor that's goin' around
My baby's got a man, lord way across town
Its the same old story
Tell me where will this end
Yes I heard the news its the same old blues again
I got the same old blues, same old blues again

I got the blues... same old blues

All I Can Do Is Write About It Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Gimme Back My Bullets

Well this life that I've lead has took me everywhere
There ain't no place I ain't never gone
But its kind of like the saying that you heard so many times
Well there just ain't no plae like home
Did you ever see a she-gator protect her young
Or a fish in a river swimming free
Did you ever see the beauty of the hills of Carolina
Or the sweetness of the grass in Tennessee
And Lord I can't make any changes
All I can do is write 'em in a song
I can see the concrete slowly creepin'
Lord take me and mine before that comes

Do you like to see a mountain stream a-flowin'
Do you like to see a youngun with his dog
Did you ever stop to think about, well, the air your breathin'
Well you better listen to my song
And Lord I can't make any changes
All I can do is write 'em in a song
I can see the concrete slowly creepin'
Lord take me and mine before that comes

I'm not tryin' to put down no big cities
But the things they write about us is just a bore
Well you can take a boy out of ol' Dixieland
But you'll never take ol' Dixie from a boy
And Lord I can't make any changes
All I can do is write 'em in a song
I can see the concrete slowly creepin'
Lord take me and mine before that comes
'Cause I can see the concrete slowly creepin'
Lord take me and mine before that comes

What's Your Name? Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Street Survivors

Well, its 8 o'clock in Boise, Idaho
I'll find my limo driver
Mister, take us to the show
I done made some plans for later on tonight
I'll find a little queen
And I know I can treat her right.

[Chorus]
What's your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
Won't you do the same?.

Back at the hotel
Lord we got such a mess
It seems that one of the crew
Had a go with one of the guests, oh yes
Well, the police said we can't drink in the bar
What a shame
Won't you come upstairs girl
And have a drink of champagne

What's your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
For there ain't no shame.

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

9 o'clock the next day
And I'm ready to go
I got six hundred miles to ride
To do one more show, oh no
Can I get you a taxi home
It sure was grand
When I come back here next year
I wanna see you again

What was your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
Well there ain't no shame
What was your name, little girl?
What's your name?
Shootin' you straight, little girl?
Won't you do the same?

That Smell Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Street Survivors

Whiskey bottles, and brand new cars
Oak tree you're in my way
There's too much coke and too much smoke
Look what's going on inside you
Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you

Angel of darkness is upon you
Stuck a needle in your arm
So take another toke, have a blow for your nose
One more drink fool, will drown you
Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you

Now they call you Prince Charming
Can't speak a word when you're full of 'ludes
Say you'll be all right come tomorrow
But tomorrow might not be here for you
Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you

Hey, you're a fool you
Stick them needles in your arm
I know I been there before

One little problem that confronts you
Got a monkey on your back
Just one more fix, Lord might do the trick
One hell of a price for you to get your kicks
Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you
Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you

One More Time Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Street Survivors

How can you stand there smilin'
After all you've done
You know it seems to make you happy
When you've hurt someone
Twice before you fooled me
With your deceivin' and lyin'
Come in and close the door
One more time, one more time

Yeah you've been gone so long
No one knows where
And you say that you still love me
Then show me you care
'Cause you got what it takes sweet mama
To make a man feel fine
So I'll take the word of a liar
One more time, one more time

Girl you've got me hungry
Losin' my mind
I know I'm playin' with fire
Get burned everytime
Yes I'm a fool for you baby I can't deny
But I got to have your sweet love
One more time, one more time

Girl you've got me hungry
Losin' my mind
I know I'm playin' with fire
I get burned everytime
Yes I'm a fool for you mama I can't deny
But I got to have your sweet love
One more time, one more time

Yes I'm her fool once more
I can read her brown eyes
But when the rooster crows tomorrow
Well its her turn to cry
I'm headed down that old road
She lost her free ride
So tonight I'll take what I paid for
One more time, one more time
One more time

I Know A Little Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Street Survivors

Yes sir

Well the bigger the city, well the brighter the lights
The bigger the dog, well the harder the bite
I don't know where you been last night
But I think mama, you ain't doin' right

[Chorus]
Say I know a little
I know a little about it
I know a little
I know a little 'bout it
I know a little 'bout love
And baby I can guess the rest

Well now I don't read that daily news
'Cause it ain't hard to figure
Where people get the blues
They can't dig what they can't use
If they stick to themselves
They'd be much less abused

[Chorus]

Play me a little, oh yeah
Yeah

Well if you want me to be your only man
Said listen up mama, teach you all I can
Do right baby, by your man
Don't worry mama, teach you all I can

[Chorus]

Well I know a little 'bout love
Baby I want your best

You Got That Right Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Street Survivors

Well I've heard lots of people say
They're gonna settle down
You don't see their faces
And they don't come around
Well I'm not that way
I got to move along

I like to drink and to dance all night
Comes to a fix not afraid to fight
You got that right
Said, you got that right
Sure got that right

Seems so long I been out on my own
Travel light and I'm always alone
Guess I was born with a travellin' bone
When my times up, I'll hold my own
You won't find me in an old folks home
You got that right
Well you got that right
Said, you got that right
Sure got that right
I tried everything in my life
Things I like I try 'em twice
You got that right
Sure got that right

Travellin' around the world, just singing my song
I got to go, Lord I can't stay long
Here comes that ol' travellin' jones once again
I like to drink and to dance all night
Comes to a fix not afraid to fight
You got that right
Said, you got that right
Well you got that right
Sure got that right

I Never Dreamed Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Street Survivors

My daddy told me always be strong son
Don't you ever cry
You find the pretty girls and then you love them
Then you say goodbye
I never dreamed that you would leave me
But now you're gone
I never dreamed that I would miss you
Woman won't you come back home

I never dreamed that you could hurt me
And leave me blue
I've had a thousand, maybe more
But never one like you
I never dreamed I could feel so empty
But now I'm down
I never dreamed that I would beg you
Woman I need you now

It seems to me I took your love for granted
It feels to me that this time I was wrong, so wrong
Oh Lord now I feel so lonely
I say woman won't you come back home

I tried to do what my daddy taught me
But I think he knew
Someday that I would find one woman like you
I never dreamed that it could feel so good, Lord
That two could be one
I never knew about sweet love
So woman won't you come back home
Oh baby won't you come back home

Honky-Tonk, Night-Time Man Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Street Survivors

Little bit of Bakersfield

I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I get my rest in the day time
Do my runnin' around at night

I had the blues this morning
Had the blues all day today
I had the blues this morning
Had the blues all day today
Well I wish a tornado
Come and blow my blues away, away
That's what I said, take 'em away

Sounds like Roy
Yeah

And then my heart starts beatin'
When that sun starts sinkin' low
Well my heart starts beatin'
When that sun starts sinkin' low
When the shadows fall
I know its time for me to go

Billy Powell on piano

Oh Barry, play me some dobro

I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I get my rest in the day time
I do my runnin' around, round at night
I get my rest in the day time
Gets that old love sweet stuff at night

Ain't No Good Life Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Street Survivors

Ain't no good life
Not the one that I lead
'Cause the more I fight the sadness, yeah
It only seems the more that I grieve
Well I look back on the good times
As some lost part of me
I wanna know, tell me why is it so
Well just because I don't pray
Lord, that don't mean I ain't forgiven
Just 'cause I'm alive
That don't mean I'm makin' a livin'

I'm gonna get myself together
I'm gonna try a dyin' attempt
Talkin' about the good times slippin' by
Yeah I tell ya
I don't even know where last month went
Well I can't make no money baby
Well 'cause my money's already spent
And I know where it went
I said it went on that damn rent
Well I don't mean change, baby
I mean foldin' money
Well I want lovin', said I don't need a buddy
I don't need nobody, now

Ain't exactly my idea
Its sort of old, borrowed and blue
Just tryin' to say
Don't try that straight life buddy
Oh you'll find it kind of hard on you
Women, don't try to cook nothin' up, ooh
Brother you know you'll only wind up in your own stew
Just don't let nobody tell you, oh what you oughta do

Album : First And... Last.

Well, Billy Joe told me ,well everything's lookin' fine
He got the place all secure, got the icebox full of wine
He said, now hurry on all and don't be late
I got three lovely ladies who just won't wait
We'll do some down south jukin', lookin' for some peace of mind

Now put your Sunday pants, lets get out on the road
We've been workin' all week and I think its time we let go
We got three fine mamas sitting all alone
Gonna sip our wine, gonna get it on
And do some down south jukin, lookin' for some peace of mind

Well, come Monday morning we'll be headed out to the the field
We'll be doin' everything for Papa and ol' Uncle Bill
Well, come Friday night we'll be headed to town
Tryin' to pick up any woman hanging around
And do some down south jukin', lookin' for some peace of mind
And do some down south jukin', lookin' for some peace of mind
And do some down south jukin', lookin' for a peace of mind

White Dove sittin' on a blackberry bush
Is there any questioning why
Tell me what heaven you're bound for today
Feel just like I could cry
Feel just like I could cry

Little squirrel sitting on a __ rock
Wodering where the winter meal is coming from
Tired of fighting for it, gonna lay down my gun
Just know that my work is done
Just know that my work is done

Little boy blue now come blow your horn
No more of the sheep is around
Said I'm tired of fighting, gonna lay down my gun
Just know that my work is done
Just know that my work is done
Just know that my work is done
Just know that my work is done

Was I Right Or Wrong Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : First And... Last.

Like a restless leaf in the autumn breeze
Once I was a tumblin' weed
Like a rollin' stone, cold and all alone
Living for the day my train would come
I never cared for school or any golden rules
Papa used to always say I was a useless fool
So I left my home to show them thay was wrong
And headed out on the road singing my song
Then one sunny day. The man, he looked my way
And everything that I dreamed of, it was real
Money, girls and cars; and big long cigars
And I caught the first plane home so papa would see

When I went home to show 'em they was wrong
All that I found was two tombstones
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong
Oh, such a sad song
First I got lost, then I got found
But the ones that I love are in the ground
Papa I only wish you could see me now
Take a listen papa
Whoo, I learnt how to play my guitar
Gonna be a superstar

First I got lost, then I got found
The ones I love are in the ground
Won't you tell me please was I right or wrong

If there's any way you can hear what I say
Papa, I never meant to do you wrong
All the money, girls and cars. And all the words and all the cigars
Papa, I just want you to know they couldn't take your place

When I went home to show 'em they was wrong
All that I found was two tombstones
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong
Oh, such a sad song
First I got lost, then I got found
But the ones that I love are in the ground
Somebody tell me please was I right or wrong

Lend A Helpin' Hand Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : First And... Last.

Oh. Now when you think the time's __
Take a look around
'Cause babies are dying from disease
Sleeping out on the ground
People never seen the tortured eyes
From a foreign land. No
When you see somebody who's down and out
Lend a helpin' hand
You better, lend a helpin' hand. If you can
Lend a helpin' hand
Do it if you can

Oh. Every time you feed your face
Do you bow your head
Hunger kills each and every day
Won't you share your bread
If you've ever felt the pain inside
I know you'd understand
When you see somebody who's down and out
Lend a helpin' hand
You better, lend a helpin' hand. If you can
Lend a helpin' hand
Do it if you can

Oh. Every time you feed that face
Do you look around
For somebody right in your own neighborhood
Sleepin out on the ground
And do some down south jukin'
If you've ever felt the pain inside
I know you'd understand
When you see somebody who's down and out
Lend a helpin' hand
Why don't you, lend a helpin' hand. If you can
Lend a helpin' hand
Won't you please lend a helpin' hand

Wino Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : First And... Last.

Wino on the street. Drinkin' a bottle of booze
Ain't got nothing to say, yeah. And he don't got much to lose
Times are on his face. Blisters on his brain
Wonders who's at fault. Knows that he's to blame

Thinks back on his childhood and wonders the reasons why
Why some men have made it rich. Why some men have cried
Reached out his hand, lord. For a nickel or a dime
Livin' every day, yeah, for one more taste of wine

Wino, soon you've got to choose
How long must you take abuse
Wino, you wasn't born to lose
Sweet wine is making you a fool

Wino on the street. Drinkin' a bottle of booze
Ain't got nothing to say, yeah. And he don't got much to lose
I want to help him out with his troubles and woes
I guess he's a happy young man. God in heaven only knows

Wino, soon you've got to choose
How long must you take abuse
Wino, you wasn't born to lose
Sweet wine is making you a fool

Yonder come a man, now this I know
Now you better find some place to go
Yonder come a man to take you downtown
He don't want you hanging around

Comin' Home Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : First And... Last.

It's been so long since I've been gone
Another day might be too long for me
Traveling around I've had my fill
Of broken dreams and dirty deals
A concrete jungle surrounding me
Many nights I've slept out in the streets
I paid my dues and I changed my style
Seen hard times. All over now

I want to come home. It's been so long since I've been away
And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
I'll be coming home soon to your love to stay

I miss old friends that I once had
Times ain't changed and I'll be glad when I go home
I don't know why the thought came to me
But why I'm here I really can't see. And now...

I want to come home. It's been so long since I've been away
And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
I'll be coming home soon to your love to stay
Coming home to stay
Coming home to your love, mama
I've seen better days

I miss old friends that I once had
Times ain't changed and I'll be glad when I go home
I don't know why the thought came to me
But why I'm here I really can't see. And now...

I want to come home. It's been so long since I've been away
And please, don't blame me 'cause I've tried
I'll be coming home soon to your love to stay
Coming home to stay
Coming home to your love, mama
I've seen better days

When the season is turning
And my day has gone by
And to see my reflection
See it in your eyes
Know the day that's come now has gone by

And if you look now quite closely
You feel the sun start to shine
And you know the day is longing
Longing just for you
The season that's come now is as fresh as you

And if you look now quite closely
You feel the sun start to shine
And you know the day is longing
Longing just for you
The season that's come now is as fresh as you

Things Goin' On Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : First And... Last.

Have you ever lived down in the ghetto?
Have you ever felt the cold wind blow?
If you don't know what I mean,
Won't you stand up and scream?
'Cause there's things goin' on that you don't know.

Too many lives they've spent across the ocean.
Too much money been spent upon the moon.
Well, until they make it right
I hope they never sleep at night
They better make some changes
And do it soon.

They're goin ruin the air we breathe
Lord have mercy.
They're gonna ruin us all, by and by.
I'm telling you all beware
I don't think they really care
I think they just sit up there
And just get high.

Well, you can see her walkin' down on Peachtree Street
She got high-heeled shoes and a dot on her cheek
She's lookin' good, she's headed downtown
Ain't got no money, honey
She knows her way around
I think she's cute, think she's cute as she can be
Talkin' about a funny talkin', honk-tonking Georgia Peach

Well these Georgia Peaches
Son they know their way around
They can take your money, son before you get sight of town
Well they talk a little funny, but they look so fine
Nine out of ten of them gonna sell you a dime
I think they're cute, think they're cute as they can be
Talkin' about a funny talkin', honk-tonking Georgia Peach

Well, peaches, peaches
Love them Georgia Peaches
Well, peaches, peaches
Love them Georgia Peaches

Well them Georgia Peaches
Sure do got the style
They'll steal your heart with a Southern smile
Well they talk a little funny, but they look so fine
The older they get, I swear its like good wine
I think they're cute, think they're cute as they can be
Talkin' about a funny talkin', honk-tonking Georgia Peach
Talkin' about a funny talkin', honk-tonking Georgia Peach

I just seem to fall in love with the wrong things

When You Got Good Friends Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Legend

You got to love ol' Charlie Daniels
You got to cut the rug with Wet Willie too
And you got to be a fan of the Marshall Tucker Band
Before I'll sit down and have a drink with you
Yes, Bakersfield has got ol' Merle Haggard
He's a bad, bad boy, yes indeed
Nashville's got a million and one guitar pickers
But I guess my favorite would be the CDB

[Chorus]
Yes there's a few good rockers in New York City
Guess the big LA, it never cared for me
So won't you tell all them Hollywierd writer people
That it just don't make a damn
When you got good friends like me

Never dick on good ol' Waylon Jennings
Or Willie Nelson, Bob Wills or me
Well they're playin' that good ol' country-western
You know this thing they call the Texas Swing

[Chorus]

Four Walls Of Raiford Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Legend

Well them four walls of Raiford, closing in on me
Doin' three to five hard labor, for armed robbery
I had two years behind, but I could not wait the time
Everytime I thought about it, well I died some more inside

And I had stripes on my back, memories that hurt
For the only time I seen sunshine is when I hit the dirt
Diggin' ditches for the chain gang, sleepin' in the cold
Oh Lord please forgive me for I could not wait no more

And I comin' home to see you Jesus
Well it feels so close this time
Please take mercy on this soldier
From the Florida-Georgia line

When they find me they must kill me
Oh Jesus save my soul
I can't go back down to Raiford
I can't take that anymore

Well these last few years behind me
Oh Lord, have been so sad
I fought proudly for my country when the times were bad
Now they say I'm guilty, when they find me I must die
Only me and Jesus know that I never stole a dime

Well when Vietnam was over there was no work here for me
I had a pretty wife awaitin and two kids I had to feed
Well I'm one of America's heroes and when they shoot me down
Won't fly old Glory proudly, put my medals in the ground

And I comin' home to see you Jesus
Well it feels so close this time
Please take mercy on this soldier
From the Florida-Georgia line

When they find me they must kill me
Oh Jesus save my soul
I can't go back down to Raiford
I can't take that anymore

Simple Man Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Legend

Mama told me when I was young
Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say.
And if you do this
It will help you some sunny day.
Take your time... Don't live too fast,
Troubles will come and they will pass.
Go find a woman and you'll find love,
And don't forget son,
There is someone up above.

[Chorus]
And be a simple kind of man.
Be something you love and understand.
Be a simple kind of man.
Won't you do this for me son,
If you can?

Forget your lust for the rich man's gold
All that you need is in your soul,
And you can do this if you try.
All that I want for you my son,
Is to be satisfied.

[Chorus]

Somewhere the sun is shining
On some unhappy day
Somewhere there's people laughing
They think they've found the way
But its not me
Its not me, no no now

I'm not the one

Well sure I used to cry, but I used to laugh to
I had ups as well as downs you see
But I been down now for so long
I've forgotten all my dreams.
Yea it must be me
It must be me, you know now
Its not me, Its not me, Its not me, Its not me
I'm not the one in the sun

Since I became I've wondered what I've become
Lord I know it can't be much longer before
I find my place in sun

Sometimes I wonder will I figure something out
Will I find a reason good enough to live
Lord if it don't dawn on me pretty soon
I think something's gonna give
Yea it might be me
Yea it just might be me, yea
Its not me, no it can't be
'Cause I'm not the one in the sun
No I'm not the one
Yea I'm not the one
But I'm not the one
Sorry to say I'm not the one

Mr. Banker Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Legend

Mister Banker
Mister please, how much does money mean
Won't you reconsider mister
Won't you do this thing for me
Ain't got no house
Ain't got no car
All I got, Lord, is my guitar
But you can have that mister banker
Won't you bury my papa for me
Oh mister banker please
Listen to how that sound

I would not be here on my knees
But hey mister banker
It means so much to me
Oh won't you reconsider mister
Won't you do this thing for me

I told you mister
I ain't got no house
Ain't got no car
I got me a 1950 Les Paul guitar
Won't you take it mister banker
Won't you bury my papa for me
Oh mister banker please

Keeping The Faith Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991

Are you a saint then don't be a stranger
Were you sent down from Heaven to show me the way
And if you ain't then I see a danger
You better take a minute and hear what I've got to say

[chorus]
'Cause I'll keep on tryin' to put it straight to you
You better give it straight to me
'Cause most women seem to have a good time
Makin' a fool out of me
I'm keepin' my faith I've made up my mind
I've got nothin' left to lose just lay it on the line
I'm keepin' my faith yea I'll find the one
Who won't steal me blind who won't turn and run
I'm keepin' my faith I'm trustin' in you
So don't treat me like those other ones do
Ain't no gettin' 'round it tell me to my face
Do you think I'm a fool for keepin' my faith in you

I'll treat you right I'll do you better
I won't disappoint you I won't make you cry
My friends tell me if you let her
She'll empty your pockets she'll spend you dry

[repeat chorus twice]

Take Your Time Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Legend

My poor broke mama told me
When I was twelve years old
You eat and talk much too fast
There's one thing you should know
Take your time my sweet baby
Take your time my blue eyed son
Well you may never have his money
But you won't miss no rich man's fun
I can never give you money honey
I can never buy you clothes
But the way them women been lookin' at you
Someday you should have both
If you take your time my sweet baby
Take your time and love them slow
And if you play your cards right
You won't never wait no more

Well the ladies like their diamonds
They like their brand new clothes
But I was blessed with plenty of other things they love the most
I take my time with the ladies
I take my time and I love 'em slow
And since I turned thirteen
Lord, I ain't never wait no more

I can never give you money honey
I can never buy you clothes
But the way them schoolgirls look at you
Someday you should have both
If you take your time my sweet baby
Take your time and be my son
Well you might never have his money
But you won't miss his fun

Smokestack Lightning Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991

I was sittin' at home all alone when I heard that telephone ring
And there on the line was a friend of mine sayin' he wasn't doin' a thing
So I'm steppin' out on the town tonight to party where the drinks are free
There's a sweet young thing ready and waitin' on me

[chorus]
Young and fine, strike you blind
Smokestack lightnin' make you lose your mind
She's got looks that kill can fire at will
Smokestack lightnin' she's all I need

When we got to the place I got me a taste
I knew she'd be good for a game
Dancin' out on the floor she was ready for more
She knew all the boys by their names
I said hey sweet thing let me pull your string
Let me take you home
I woke up in a hour with my money and my memory gone.

[repeat chorus]

Young and fine strike you blind smokestack lightnin'

[repeat chorus]

Southern Women Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991

I'm the kind of man that loves all the girls
From debutantes to honky-tonk queens
I've tasted every brand all around the world
But all I see are peaches in my dreams
I'm talkin' 'bout, I'm talkin' 'bout them southern women
It's a well known fact across the Dixie line
And if a man don't agree I can tell you he's blind
They can drink with the best and the hell with the rest
And if she takes you home you ain't gettin' no rest

[chorus]
I'm talkin' 'bout, I'm talkin' 'bout them southern women
I'm talkin' 'bout they'll love you so slow them southern women
Them southern girls
They look like angels on saturday night oh-lord they got a wild side
Take you places that you've never been make a man come back again
Talk about mama's southern belle little girl learned her lesson well
Ain't no others can cast a spell like the sweet southern women

[repeat chorus]

They can make a man feel so proud they can capture him with a southern style
Little girl learned her lesson well ain't no others can cast a spell
Like the sweet southern women them southern girls

Pure & Simple Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991

I used to live in a poor neighborhood
My friends and me we always had a time
Never had no money but we had it so good
Those days are gone and I wanna go back
So pure so simple
Never thought about it when you're young you don't care
You don't realize it 'till it's all behind
Take it for granted just not well

[chorus]
Oh-oh It was pure and simple
I'll remember those days 'till the end
Oh-oh God knows it's simple
If I could live my life all over again
I'd keep it pure and simple

Those days are gone and I wanna go back
Got me a feelin' I'm not alone
Wish I had a road so I could go back home

[repeat chorus twice]

I've Seen Enough Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991

You got to lock your doors, keep the world out
We're closin' ourselves in
If you watch the news it'll scare you to death
To Hell and back again
The only justice here's at the wrong end of a gun
Got the criminal makin' the laws got the good men on the run
I've seen enough

We don't own anything we've got we've givin' it all away
But that don't make no sense to me you know who's gonna pay
It's the man in the factory workin' twelve hours a day
The woman workin' in the restaurant with another kid on the way

[chorus]
Isn't anything in this life sacred anymore
We can't lose what we've got it's worth fightin' for
I've seen enough, I've seen enough to make a grown man cry

A man's standin' by the road a sign in his hand
He don't want your charity he says I ain't no begger man
All I need is a chance to get back on my feet
But we just pass him by well it could be you or me
I've seen enough
I ain't the kind to just sit back and watch the world go 'round
It's not too late to change let's turn this shit around

[repeat chorus]

Good Thing Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991

My baby came home late last night
I said girl I gotta talk to you
I've been drinkin' with the man next door
He said he's been singin' with you
Whoever's tellin' lies it's time to say bye-bye
You know my mama didn't raise no fool

[chorus]
You're gonna walk out that door you'll never see me anymore
Tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna love ya' just one more time
I'd love to see what you've got
I don't care if it takes all night
Gonna make you remember for the rest of your life oh baby
We had a good thing a good thing goin'
But ain't been seein' eye to eye
You had a good thing but it's all over
Might as well wave and say goodbye

It's easy to see the guilt in your eyes
Girl I want you to tell me the truth
Was he worth the risk and all the trouble he's caused
Now it comes down to me and you
You thought I was blind when you were gone all the time
Playin' me for a fool

[repeat chorus]

We had a good thing goin' baby but it's all over

Good thing, good thing goin'.......

Money Man Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991

This song goes out to all the money men

He drives around in a fancy car
Smokes those long cuban cigars
He don't know how to play guitar
He can't sing but still the pretty girls think he's a star

We play music got families to feed
Ain't good with numbers and he knows we can't read
If we get a dollar you know he gets three
It ain't hard to figure out it's as simple as can be
Don't ask me ask the money man

These boys are livin' in a fantasy land
I just keep 'em on the road so they can pay the money man
I'll be long gone before they understand
My promises are strong like a road made out of sand

I wanna be your money man
My mortgage is picked up by the band
I wanna be your money man
The boys, oh they're sleepin' out in the van

Don't ask me ask the money man
You boys are livin' in fantasy land
You signed the dotted line I'm takin' all I can
Your money's lookin' good in my retirement plan
That's just the way it is when your playin' in a band

That's my money man down on his knees
He ain't prayin' but he damn sure ought to be
He's at a place where money doesn't grow on trees
And all his prison buddies doin' more than shoot the breeze
How does it feel no money man
Not too good
What did you do with my money man
Well I a... Well a you know a...
How does it feel to be a honey man
Are you sure that your still a man

Aw your dressed up like a little girl
Just shootin' the breeze down on your knees
Money man, oh money man

Backstreet Crawler Lyrics

Artist : LYNYRD SKYNYRD
Album : Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991

I snuck around the corner he had this guy down
I through the first punch that's when he hit the ground
To survive in the street you gotta win the first round
'Cause if you want eat you gotta be the baddest one around
I'm a backstreet crawler

Daddy paid for college I earned a degree
Got a job up on Wall Street
Where I learned to make the little man bleed
That's when I got stomped like a cattle stampede
Had a nervous breakdown all my friends and family left me

[chorus]
Yeah I'm a backstreet crawler
When you see them on the concrete it's their spirit that's harder
Yeah I'm a backstreet crawler
Where your ego meets defeat and your pride can't get no smaller
Yeah I'm a backstreet crawler
Yeah I'm a backstreet crawler

I guess you might say it sure is a shame
I used to have everything oh how my life has changed
Yeah I'm broken and torn I've never been free
Lost everything that meant a thing to me

[repeat chorus]
