If You Really Do Lyrics

Artist : RUNGA, BIC
Album : Belle

Love me
If you really do
It's never black or white
But every day we try
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Love me
If you really do
If it's written in the stars
Why does it have to be so hard
Oh, oh, oh, oh

My mind is made knowing tomorrow
The road is not so long
To get back where we belong
Oh, oh, oh, oh

I can't speak, darling, for you
But the river's not so wide
To reach the other side
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Love me
If you only knew
What it means to be alone
And everything that we have known
Oh, oh, oh, oh

My mind is made knowing tomorrow
The road is not so long
To get back where we belong
Oh, oh, oh, oh

I can't speak, darling, for you
But the river's not so wide
To reach the other side
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Love me
If you really do
If you really do
If you really do

This Girl's Prepared For War Lyrics

Artist : RUNGA, BIC
Album : Belle

All the nights I spend, waiting
Time moves so slow
Leaning on my friends, complaining
Why it's so hard

This girl's prepared for war
And as for love, who knows what it's good for
Except for crying yourself to sleep at night
And for blowing down, your little heart

Staring at your face, wondering
What went wrong
I cannot pretend, to be playing
Anymore

This girl's prepared for war
And as for love, who knows what it's good for
Except for crying yourself to sleep at night
And for blowing down, your little heart

This girl's prepared for war
And as for love, who knows what it's good for
Except for crying yourself to sleep at night
And for blowing down, your little heart

Everything Is Beautiful And New Lyrics

Artist : RUNGA, BIC
Album : Belle

I see houses filled with colored light
Trees and mountains bowing to the sky
I can tell my loneliness to you
Everything is beautiful and new

Clouds like horses rushing at the sea
Grasses leaning, learning to be free
Things that left me puzzled in my youth
Everything is beautiful and new

Everything is beautiful and new
Things I've seen, I know this to be true
I can tell my happiness to you
Everything is beautiful and new

I see harbors filled with colored sails
Crowds of people smile about their way
Nothing can be honored but the truth
Everything is beautiful and new

Everything is beautiful and new
Things I've seen, I know this to be true
I can tell my happiness to you
Everything is beautiful and new

Good Love Lyrics

Artist : RUNGA, BIC
Album : Belle

Deadbeats in the hall
Lost souls in the back room
Where do I find a good love
Looking out for a good love
Where do I find a good love round here

Rich men want to own you
Find a way to control you
But how do I find a good love
Looking for things I shouldn't have
Has anybody got a good love right here

Oh, I think I'd know by now
I should know by now
How do I find a good love

Oh, could it be one day now
Is it one day now
How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love

Running scared from yourself
Waiting out on a bad moon
But is there still time for good love
Would you recognize a good love, good love
If even by chance a good love found you

Oh, I think I'd know by now
I should know by now
How do I find a good love
Oh, could it be one day now

Is it one day now
How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love
Ooh, ooh, ooh

How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love

How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love, good love
How do I find a good love

How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love

Devil On Tambourine Lyrics

Artist : RUNGA, BIC
Album : Belle

Falling free
An opportunity
A place to get away
A holiday

Lucky me
I've made an enemy
I've made one, two or three
Lucky me

Suddenly I could hear the harmony
Beneath the apple tree
Violent eyes that fire apple green
Devil on tambourine

Quietly
A serpent follows me
To make an offering
I can't refuse

Suddenly I could hear the harmony
Beneath the apple tree
Violent eyes that fire apple green
Devil on tambourine

Falling free
An opportunity
A place to get away
A holiday

Lucky me
I've made an enemy
I've made one, two or three
Lucky me

Suddenly I could hear the harmony
Beneath the apple tree
Violent eyes that fire apple green
Devil on tambourine

Belle Lyrics

Artist : RUNGA, BIC
Album : Belle

Belle, tu es si belle
Qu'en te voyant je t'ai aimée
Belle, que j'aime tant
Depuis longtemps je t'attendais

Souviens-toi du temps où tu venais
Chaque soir pour me rencontrer
Tu passais si belle que j'en rêvais
Tu le sais, mon amie, je t'aimais

Belle, oh ma si belle
Tu t'en allais sans m'écouter
Belle je t'attendrai
Pendant longtemps, tu es si belle
Belle que j'aime tant
Je t'attendrai en te rêvant

Puis un jour, un jour tu passeras
Près de moi, ma belle tu viendras
Nous ferons alors si tu le veux
Ce jour-là le beau voyage à deux

Belle si tu le veux
Nous serons deux
Nous serons deux

Darkness All Around Us Lyrics

Artist : RUNGA, BIC
Album : Belle

It's time to sleep and walk out
It's far too late to talk about
We took a night of absence now
We walk among the town

At dawn a mist approaches
There's not a soul to speak of
It's time to change the map now
And sail upon the seas

A storyteller told me
There's darkness all around us
The darkness all around me said
“It's not just in your head”

A storyteller told me
There's darkness all around us
The darkness all around me said
“It's not just in your head”

Music And Light Lyrics

Artist : RUNGA, BIC
Album : Belle

Love's a walk on a wire
I tripped on the stairs
Makes you feel like a fool
If you're not aware
And it may not be wise to show how you feel
And it may not be what I thought to be real

Dance your way to my room
I need you to stay
It sends my head in a ruin
When you look my way
And I wake to the sound of songs in the street
There's music and light in all that I see

If you've got a love
Then you won't want to hesitate
If you really want
Maybe the whole world will stop and wait
There's music and light
Feels like the sun in my eyes

Dance your way to my room
I need you to stay
We can make up the rules
I hear what you say
I don't care much to talk of how things should be
There's music and light in all that we see

If you've got a love
Maybe you won't want to hesitate
If you really want
Maybe the whole world will stop and wait
There's music and light
Feels like the sun in my eyes
It's blinding and bright
Just like the sun in my eyes

New Fire Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

Our families are a weird machine
there’s too many parts to tape back together
before you turn 18
you shake cause you’re not ready
but fear comes back for more
be a light in their darkness
be a glow on the shore
he’ll turn it around
New fire lit in you
a new fire circles this room
may you never be afraid of your faith in
New fire lit in you
a new fire circles this room
may you never be afraid of your father
Families are a precious thing
there’s too many hearts to break all at once
before you turn 23
you scream cause you weren’t honest
and you left cause you were wrong
I pray for grace in your decisions
and hope you won’t be gone too long
New fire lit in you
a new fire circles this room
may you never be afraid of your faith in
New fire lit in you
a new fire circles this room
may you never be afraid of your father…
take take that knife from your neck…

An Honest Heart Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

Come and see
the religion I have lost in recovery
in recovery
and what you need from me isn’t playing a guitar
or sympathy
it’s my honest heart
in pursuit of yours
How long should I wait for words to come
I may have done us in for good
which vow will I break before I’m done
God, I may have done us in for good
I may have done us in for good
Honestly, I have made a few mistakes
but I’m coming clean
I'm coming clean
and with recovery
I replace a broken vow and a growing seed with my honest heart
How long should I wait for words to come
I may have done us in for good
which vow will I break before I’m done
God, I may have done us in for good
I may have done us in for good
Just pay attention to every thought
pay attention to every thought
we pray for revival
I let go, I let go
all I want is your forgiveness
say you'll stay
How long should I wait for words to come
I may have done us in for good
which vow will I break before I’m done
God, I may have done us in for good
I may have done us in for good

I Hear Her Breathe Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

She's been asleep for some time now
In a world of glass and paper doubt
The doc explains in th ebest way he knows how
That the cancer found its way in through out mouths

Wake form your sleep
Oh, precious one
Wake up now
I can hear her breathe
She's coming back to me
And when she speaks
Can we live with what we've done
She's moving and I am terrified that we can't hear the whisper

If I make it to morning and somehow believe
It was fear that turned our dreams to doubt
Her cancer I ate for her father who waits
Cause she wants to sing again

Wake form your sleep
Oh, precious one
Wake up now
I can hear her breathe
She's coming back to me
And when she speaks
Can we live with what we've done
She's moving and I am terrified that we can't hear the whisper

What kind of son would I be if I let her sleep
What kind of brother would I be if I let her sleep
She's gonna speak

Beautiful List Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

His ways are not our own
I was riddled with sadness
He gave me hope
With no expectations of whats to come
Cause he knows you, he knows

I am interested in what works, and what is beautiful,
Let's mix the two and watch it grow"

His ways are not our own
I was a burning mess
Her heart was the road
And no reservations of what wed done
Cause she knows you, she knows

I am interested in what works, and what is beautiful,
Let's mix the two and watch it grow
This house is starting to feel like my home
So let's make it beautiful, let's make it beautiful

I got what's on my list
I marry the two
I got what's on my list
I marry the two
I got what's on my list
I marry the two

I am interested in what works, and what is beautiful,
Let's mix the two and watch it grow
This house is starting to feel like my home
So let's make it beautiful, let's make it beautiful

Trailer Vs Tornado Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

You speak of grace like you've seen it...
Your precious blood begins to boil over...
And we will never be the same again

Now that I've got your attention...
The plastic parts of people melt away...
A blowing wind..it changes my position..
But theres just something about facing our fears today

This won't take long..
Using words you feel are true..
Keep building the love...
The beauty above me breathes out loud..
As I learn to indulge in You...

The feeling of the wind as it touches my skin...
Just one of my addictions...
Well I made it my home but woke up alone...
Cause I created this myself

I'll hopefully be close enough..
With a better understanding....

This won't take long..
Using words you feel are true..
Keep building the love...
The beauty above me breathes out loud..
As I learn to indulge in You...

Honestly I'll never be the same again..
But I'm trying..I tried to be something I'm not.
In the end...I'll never be the same again.

Jill Plays Tricks, Jack Plays God Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

Blessed by a church you molded with you hands
They send you up that hill
While you wait for change
A clever distraction
You lose your name and all it's worth
But something does change
We blame the ones we love
A clever lie

I'll keep running after you
But I always seem to stumble over what I've become
I'll keep running after you
There's something healing in the silence when I'm alone with you
His church is the body, but where is the blood
He's centering himself inside the castles built with mud
He's full of cheap, cheap grace
But as for faith
He has none

I'll keep running after you
But I always seem to stumble over what I've become
I'll keep running after you
There's something healing in the silence when I'm alone with you

Mon Dieu it's a celebration
Cause I'm coming back to you
I'm coming back

I'll keep running after you
But I always seem to stumble over what I've become
I'll keep running after you
There's something healing in the silence when I'm alone with you

Cause in our faith we come together and make a change for the better
I was living alone
I cannot tell you why
But I found out
I love you more

Philadelphia Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

When they cut you, the blade went deep
You thought a blanket of silence would strengthen your feet
Then a name came out in prophecy
Still you were terrifier that name was truth
It's truth

Brother you must find which way to go
And with grace be bold
Just take your time
Take your time
And with grace be bold

Despite truth, the talk was cheap
You thought a princess with purpose was all that you'd need
Then a name came out in prophecy
He knew that growning fire
It came from you
Yes. you

Brother you must find which way to go
And with grace be bold
Just take your time
Take your time
And with grace be bold

The clouds will come but they're not gonna stop this love
The clouds will come
Now a hole would be something
No, I was still nothing
No

Brother you must find which way to go
And with grace be bold
Just take your time
Take your time
And with grace be bold

The clouds will come but they're not gonna stop this love
The clouds will come

Salt And The Light Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

in all our graceful words
without love
they're just a burden from our tongues
the taste remains and without faith
we're still and arms length away
but somehow we're burning brighter
you'll never be more beautiful than today
whole-hearted we're open
our madness silent
cause we know when you come
you come in love

cause love is all we need
i came here with nothing
but i left with everything
and all the truth you bring
still i came here with nothing
but I left with everything

to be honest
we're older
and life makes us stand in disbelief
are you who you want to be
i've learned that its ok
to be broken at your feet
and its where i wanna be

cause love is all we need
i came here with nothing
but i left with everything
and all the truth you bring
still i came here with nothing
but I left with everything

your faith is only as strong as the words you speak..so speak

This Awakening Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

i need you now..maybe more than ever..
i wanna come back to life..
but i'm not sure how...
so i'm falling into your water..
take me deeper...deeper in silent...
why bother..we've been here all along..
waiting for faith to fall..but light...
this burn is changing me from a poison to purpose..
and the thought is poetry...
this awakening...it starts with a fallout...
silence became my crutch and i...
i got by without knowing enough..
so much conviction as i..as i paced this room...
the mystery in me is on display for hundreds to see...
but now i think its time..
time for that change the mystery in me is on display..
for a hundred to see love like fire..
this is our prayer you know i'd die...
just to be with you

Stone Soup Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

A pacing conversation
My body is tired
I focus on wrong things
Ces yeux incompetant
I won't believe their lies
They're too hungry with pride

My needful face gave me away
I wanna know what I've done wrong
My needful face gave me away
I wanna know what I've done wrong
I wanna know so I can change

A rose in an empty bottle
Now I have a wife
A rose of my own
See that I am my father's son
I may make mistakes but I learn
I learn through faith

My needful face gave me away
I wanna know what I've done wrong
My needful face gave me away
I wanna know what I've done wrong
I wanna know so I can change

Accomplishments don't mean a thing
They don't mean a thing
They don't
You never had to earn respect from me
You've had it all along

My needful face gave me away
I wanna know what I've done wrong
My needful face gave me away
I wanna know what I've done wrong
I wanna know so I can change

I could write this song in anger
But it's not who I am
It's not

True Bride Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Our Graceful Words

A true bride won't bury the ones that hold her
A true bride won't burn what's close to her heart
If I don't make it back, will you keep me

I'm gonna love you like I should
Faithfully unchanging
I'm gonna love you like I should
Faithfully unchanging

A true bride doesn't deserve the weight we offer
A true bride doesn't deserve to be misunderstood
If I don't make it back, will you keep me
If I don't make it back, I need to know you'll keep me

I'm gonna love you like I should
Faithfully unchanging
I'm gonna love you like I should
Faithfully

I'm gonna love you like I should
Faithfully unchanging
I'm gonna love you like I should
Faithfully unchanging

She is a song written fully for worship
She is my home
She is a city built for more that profit
She is my home

We're All Liars Lyrics

Artist : SENT BY RAVENS
Album : Mean What You Say

Connections has never been stronger
We see the same things
I gave all my money to God expecting relief
And as they kicked me out
I swore

Somebody is a liar.
You shouldn't play with fire, you may get burned.
You know, you know, I put my trust in this.
But I know, I know, I've been misplacing it.

I thought I was different, no, but I did the same things.
You were wrong and admitted it, saw you were just like me.
Where was the grace I had before?

Somebody is a liar.
You shouldn't play with fire, you may get burned.
You know, you know, I put my trust in this.
But I know, I know, I've been misplacing it.

I ran and I ran and I ran for you, but I broke my word, but I broke my word.
I see and I see and I see it's true, that I broke my word, that I broke my word.
Where was the grace I had before?

Somebody is a liar.
You shouldn't play with fire, you may get burned.
You know, you know, I put my trust in this.
But I know, I know, I've been misplacing it.

I broke my word.

Put The "O" Back In Country Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Put The

Let's put the O back in country

Well I'm rollin' like a freight train
Comin' straight at you
Playing hillbilly music like I was born to do
You know that ain't country music you been listenin' to

Oh, so are you ready for the country
Are you ready for me?
Better get ready for the country
Ain't I a sight to see
You know there ain't no soul on the radio
Let's put the O back in country

Pickin' easy listenin', ain't what I do best, no
But they say in country music, it's either hit or miss
Well, if you're talking about record sales
You can sound scan this, yeah

Oh, are you ready for the country
Are you ready for me?
But better get ready for the country
Ain't I a sight to see
Oh, you know there ain't no soul on the radio
Let's put the O back in country

You take a little country and a little rock and roll
A little Neil Young and a little George Jones
A little Merle Haggard and a little bit of the Stones
And a little Cash and a whole lotta Waylon

Are you ready for the country
Are you ready for me?
Yeah, better get ready for the country
Ready for me

Yeah, are you ready for the country
Are you ready for me?
Better get ready for the country
Ain't I a sight to see
Yeah, you know we need a little soul on the radio
Let's put the O back in country

4th Of July Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Put The
(feat. George Jones)

Alone with the morning burning red
On the canvas in my head, painting a picture of you
And me driving across country, in a dusty old RV
Just the road and its majesty
And I'm looking at you with the world in the rear view

You were pretty as can be, sitting in the front seat
Looking at me, telling me you love me
And your happy to be with me on the 4th of July
We sang 'Stranglehold' to the stereo
Couldn't take no more of that rock 'n' roll
So we put on a little George Jones and just sang along

Those white lines get drawn into the sun
If you ain't got no one to keep you hanging on
And there you were like a queen in your nightgown
Riding shotgun from town to town
Staking a claim on the world we found

And I'm singing to you, you're singing to me
You were out of the blue to a boy like me

You were pretty as can be, sitting in the front seat
Looking at me, telling me you love me
And your happy to be with me on the 4th of July
We sang 'Stranglehold' to the stereo
Couldn't take no more of that rock 'n' roll
So we put on a little George Jones and just sang along, sang along

And I'm looking for you in the silence that we share

You were pretty as can be, sitting in the front seat
Looking at me, telling me you love me
And your happy to be with me on the 4th of July
We sang 'Stranglehold' to the stereo
Couldn't take no more of that rock 'n' roll
So we put on a little George Jones and just sang along, sang along

Lonesome Blues Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Put The

Another lifetime lived in a long night
I'm watching the sunrise before I lay down to sleep
Livin' at parties, watching my twenties
Hittin' my thirties, lettin' it go

But that's all I've been livin' for
When there's nothing left to lose anymore
If there's a door, I'll go through
And walk right into my lonesome blues

Runnin' my friends off, well, I cheat and I get caught
They tell me that I'm lost but I don't care anymore
I'm having a free mind, living a free life
Knowing that my flight is gonna crash and burn, alright

But that's all I've been livin' for
When there's nothing left to lose anymore
If there's a door, I'll go through
And walk right into my lonesome blues

I'm writing my stories on my worst mornings
I'm pulling my heart strings to help me find myself
Living with my past, smokin' up my grass
And having a good laugh just to lose myself

That's all I've been livin' for
When there's nothing left to lose anymore
If there's a door, I'll go through
And walk right into my lonesome blues
Yes, I'll walk right into my lonesome blues

Solid Country Gold Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Put The

Well I been sinking like a rock in this high society
'Cause all that means so much to them, don't mean shit to me
If I were in to money, fame and power, I'd be sold
But I know I tried, and I just can't find that solid country gold

But now I was born in Nashville but I left there long ago
'Cause they built music city by sacrificing soul
L.A. ain't much different, accept they got them fancy clothes
And there's nary a sight or a leaving light of solid country gold

'Cause they say country music ain't quite all it used to be
But they can't see the country for all the goddamned trees
If you give me to a guitar and my woman on the road
I'll give to you my family, my solid country gold alright

Now baby I been thinking 'bout where you and I should go
You sell your apartment, and I'll shake off my load
We'll take it down to Texas where we'll kiss that yellow rose
And find ourselves some loving in solid country gold

Well they say country music ain't quite all it used to be
But they can't see the country for all the goddamned trees
If you give me to a guitar and my woman on the road
I'll give to you my family, my solid country gold

Oh 'cause they say country music ain't quite all it used to be
They can't see the country for all the goddamned trees
And if you give me to a guitar and my woman on the road
I'll give to you my family, my solid country gold yeah
Yes, I'll give to you my family, my solid country gold, alright

“Come on boys, let's hit the road!”
We left L.A. on Sunday, in Lubbock by Tuesday
That's where we played our second show
Where nobody knew us, so nobody noticed the songs that the band didn't know
We were eatin' up the white lines, makin' good time
Diggin' the songs on the radio
And that party kept a movin' and you know what we were doin'
We were smokin' up that California gold

Now everyone was glad, “The Weight” played by The Band
You know I never had that song ever let me down
And I didn't notice I was speedin' but in the rear-view mirror blinkin'
Were them state trooper's lights all spinnin' ‘round
We rolled down the windows, so we didn't think that he would notice
Something smellin' funny in that smoke cloud
And he asked, “What you boys a-hidin'?” and we were all silent
‘Cause I think he heard us clear and loud

And we were busted
Busted in Baylor County
Busted, busted in Baylor County
“Oh no, my Weed!”
He spread us all along the highway, cuffed us all and turned us away
And started pokin' round the truck for cake
And we all stood there high as a kite, and he found it alright
And don't y'all make light of the number one dope dog in the state
That mutt found the joint in my pocket that was buried and locked up
In the back of the trailer underneath the guitars and the piano seat
And off we went to jail all locked up in a cell
Charged with possession of that sweet leaf

And we were busted
Busted in Baylor County
Busted, busted in Baylor County
Now I was still pretty buzzed when they called in the judge
Who greeted me with a smile and a warm handshake
And he said, “I'm so sorry,” ‘cause they couldn't unarrest us
But that was up to some other official magistrate
And he said, “Don't you worry, son, all the charges are gone
But I've got a few autographs for you to sign.”
And they sprang us out right quick, so we could get up on the stick
To Wichita Falls by show time
To tell ‘em...
We were busted
Busted in Baylor County
Busted, busted in Baylor County
Busted, busted in Baylor County
Busted, busted in Baylor County

Sweet Savannah Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Put The

So it comes to the end of the day
And I'm checking out of my hotel room today
It's been two years since I've seen your face
The girl beside me reminds me how you taste

Since I've seen you, I've been beaten down and bruised
And everyday I'm feeling more and more misused
I never thought that I would be without your love
Years gone by, you're still the one I'm thinking of

Sweet Savannah, you shine so bright
May the evening bring your favorite night
Sweet Savannah, you been gone so long
But I've got to move on

It's gettin' cold, I put my jacket on your back
And we smoke a cigarette, the last one in the pack
I still remember exactly what you said
That you had demons that you couldn't put to bed

Now I'm leaving, yeah, I'm moving out west
And it's time for us to lay our history to rest
I still remember a tear drop in your eye
But you know I couldn't stand to see you cry

Sweet Savannah, you shine so bright
May the evening bring your favorite night
Sweet Savannah, you been gone so long
But I've got to move on

So now I close on this Hollywood night
Where this counter-culture cultivates an emptiness inside
Would it be different if you were still here in my life
Would I be sober, and would you be my wife?

Sweet Savannah, you shine so bright
May the evening bring your favorite night
Sweet Savannah, you been gone so long
But I've got to be movin' on

Steady At The Wheel Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Put The

Well, I push my load across the land
Livin' the life of a travelin' man
Dusk brings down another day
Gonna swallow up time and throw it away

[Chorus]
Zero to sixty, she's the next big thing
They tell me it's a steal
Drive all night just to ease the pain
Don't look away
Stay steady at the wheel

You try to sing a familiar tune
Howlin' the words under a bloodshot moon
Blacklight troubadour, push on through
As heartbreak sits right next to you

[Chorus]
Zero to sixty, she's the next big thing
They tell me it's a steal
Drive all night just to ease the pain
Don't look away
Stay steady at the wheel

Steady at the wheel

Manifesto No. 1 Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Put The

Moved out of my apartment and you moved out of my old town
My life has remained so lonely since you ain't been around
And to think how far I traveled, honey, just to see you one more time
But if that's how you say hello well you can kiss my ass goodbye

So let your hair down, get out of that skirt
Oh but leave them high heels on
I'll be in the back on my black Cadillac
When Jesus finally comes to call His children home

So let your hair down, get out of that skirt
Oh but leave them high heels on
I'll be in the back on my black Cadillac
When Jesus finally comes to call His children home
Don't get up

Gonna climb a mountain when I get to the top I'll find a honky tonk
Where I'll sit and I'll drink wondering where you've gone
And to think how far I've traveled just to get your off my mind
But if that's how you say hello well you can kiss my ass goodbye

So let your hair down, get out of that skirt
Oh but leave them high heels on
I'll be in the back on my black Cadillac
When Jesus finally comes to call His children home

So let your hair down, get out of that skirt
Oh but leave them high heels on
I'll be in the back on my black Cadillac
When Jesus finally comes to call His children home
Oh yeah, I'll be in the back on my black Cadillac
When Jesus finally comes to call His children home

The Letter Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Put The

I found a letter just yesterday
And what it say, I can't disclose
I read that letter and every word that it say
And my heart, it just froze

Ain't it a shame? Ain't it a shame?
Ain't it a shame? Such a sad, sad shame
My baby's been runnin' around
All around this town, with another man

I packed her stuff up, put it on the front porch
When she gets home, she'll surely see
You know it was so hard goin' through our life together
Figurin' out what belongs to you and what belongs to me, yeah

Ain't it a shame? Ain't it a shame?
Ain't it a shame? Such a sad, sad shame
My baby's been runnin' around
All around this town, with another man

So many times I've forgiven her
So much time, I could never get it back
And I don't wanna know how long it's been goin' on
I just wanna leave this town and never look back

Ain't it a shame? Ain't it a shame?
Ain't it a shame? Such a sad, sad shame
My baby's been runnin' around
All around this town, with another man

Ooh, ain't it a shame?

Southern Comfort Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Put The
(feat. Faith Evans, Jessi Colter and CeCe White)

Take me home

Well, I came to Cali on a highway from Nashville
It's all a gamble for the fortune and fame
My education came from reading the road signs
Just another fool who got lost in the game

And I'm going back again
'Cause it's blowing in the wind
That's carryin' me home

Oh, southern comfort
Don't leave me low
Oh, southern comfort
Keeps calling me home
Yeah

And all these actors, man, they're living in castles
And with the earthquakes they'll sink in the sea
Who makes a living off of heartbreaks and hassles?
And scientologists make no sense to me

So I'm going back again
'Cause it's blowing like the wind
That's carryin' me home

Oh, southern comfort
Don't leave me low
Oh, southern comfort
Keeps calling me home

Oh, southern comfort
Don't leave me low
Oh, southern comfort
Keeps calling me home

Oh, southern comfort
Don't leave me low
Oh, southern comfort
Keeps calling me home

Oh, southern comfort
Don't leave me low
Oh, southern comfort
Keeps calling me home

Oh, southern comfort
Don't leave me low
Oh, southern comfort
Keeps calling me home

C'mon take me home

Daddy's Farm Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Put The

There's a piggy waitin' outside my door
Who's a knockin' and a yellin' that he's gonna use force
Well, I moved to town just a while ago
And I got in a mess and I can't lay low

Back home all I had was my guitar
Livin' in the backwoods on Daddy's farm
Sittin' on the front porch 'til the evenin' come
Livin' in the backwoods on Daddy's farm

Well, my old girl was Cadillac
She was long and sleek and dressed in black
But I caught her cruisin' with another dude
So I shot 'em down with my blue .22

Back home all I had was my guitar
Livin' in the backwoods on Daddy's farm
Sittin' on the front porch 'til the evenin' come
Livin' in the backwoods on Daddy's farm, on Daddy's farm

But now they got me runnin' and they got me to my home
But I won't go, I won't go

Chitty-chitty bang-bang, and I hit at the floor
Two little piggies bust down my door
The first little piggy went down
The second little piggy started poppin' off rounds

I make a break for the parking lot
I heard some people talkin' how somebody got shot
They're never gonna see it my way
So I break for the truck and headed on the highway

I must have got it up to 108
Before three little piggies headed me off the interstate
It's gettin' hot, I'm gettin' hot
I don't know where to go, I don't know what I got, but

Back home all I had was my guitar
Livin' in the backwoods on Daddy's farm
Sittin' on the front porch 'til the evenin' come
Livin' in the backwoods on Daddy's farm
Yeah, on Daddy's farm, yeah, on Daddy's farm

Electric Rodeo Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Electric Rodeo

It's been 16 months since I've been back home
I make a lot of money I don't know where it goes
All I know is the guitar and the bottle
My daddy was a loaded gun
He said: it ain't no fun livin' on the run, son
But everywhere I go trouble seems to follow
So I ride
And I pick my songs at night at the next big show
My friends they come and they go
And love moves a little too slow
When you're riding with an Electric Rodeo
Now I can't complain I do alright
Singin' my songs in a different town every night
Lookin' for a woman to keep me warm tonight
From California to the dirt of New York
From Dallas, Texas to the streets of Baltimore
Wishin' I was home with a little girl of my own
And I ride

Gone To Carolina Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Electric Rodeo

Every time I think I smell that sweet southern rain
it takes me to a station on the long black train
I wanna hear the wind blow, and feel the earth move below me
despite of all the good times, I gotta rest my soul

So I'm gone, yes I'm gone
gone to Carolina, where I know that I belong

Yes I'm gone, yes I'm gone
gone to Carolina, where I know I have a home

Every time I think I see your face in a crowd
it's like a bell inside of me, and it's ringin' out loud
I've been so high for so long, there's nothing tried nor true
I'm thinking bout coming down, to lay a little on you

And I'm gone, yes I'm gone
gone to Carolina, where I know that I belong

Yes I'm gone, yes I'm gone
gone to Carolina, where I know I have a home

Take me home

[solo]

Yes I'm gone, yes I'm gone
gone to Carolina, where I know that I belong

Yes I'm gone, yes I'm gone
gone to Carolina, where I know I have a home

Yea, come on

Some Rowdy Women Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Electric Rodeo

[Verse 1:]
Well the songs I make, they ain't for livin'
And the things I take, they ain't for givin'
I'd gladly trade all my big city livin'
For some rowdy women and a honky tonk tonight

Well my mistakes give me my reputation
But them old sad songs were my education
And when I drift back home, I start to missin'
Some rowdy women, to pacify my mind

[Chorus:]
Cause I have been high, I have been low
I've lost my mind, and I stole the show
I'd gladly trade all my big city livin'
For some rowdy women and a honky tonk tonight

[Verse 2:]
I nearly had one wife, she took to leavin'
Because of all my lies, she stopped believin'
and now I'm nine miles high, let me be forgivin'
For givin' some rowdy women, a little piece of my mind

[Chorus:]
Cause I have been high, I have been low
I've lost my mind, and I stole the show
I'd gladly trade all my big city livin'
For some rowdy women
For some rowdy women and a honky tonk tonight

The Song Is Still Slipping Away Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Electric Rodeo

With a bag, a bottle and this old guitar
In the back of some bus on the road
I'm living the high life with nothing to show
But a love that's letting me go
Your heroes turn out to be assholes
And the light in the tunnel that you're chasing is a train
The singer's in key the guitars in tune
But the song is still slipping away
The lights of the city paint a stage in the night
For two hearts breaking in time
Wild horses are cursed with their freedom in mind
And a hunger left burning inside

Hair Of The Dog Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Electric Rodeo

[VERSE 1:]
It's a long long road of livin
I wouldn't wanna be sendin
The wrong idea that I'm gettin soft.
I just keep on gettin lost
I don't care too much
If I ever find my way back home.
The railways are too rusty
The roads are just too dusty
I sit and watch the day die all alone.
It's just me and the sun
But pretty soon he's gone
When he goes away, I'll go get stoned.

[CHORUS:]
I drank all last night
Til the crack of dawn
I was pickin to my favorite country songs.
Singing, It won't be long
Til I'm dead and gone
I woke up this morning
To the hair of the dog.

[VERSE 2:]
I remember sweet young fame
Or maybe it was a dream
She was beggin me to come home when I could.
This whole life protests me
It's a curse and a blessing
A glimpse of where
My daddy stood

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Little White Lines Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Electric Rodeo

I got a problem seems I could use your advice
Of all the things I need the most and went and got myself a brand new vice
The first time that I did it I did it till the mornin' sun came
And now those little white lines, little white lines gonna sizzle up my brain
I woke up this mornin' didn't recognize my own face
I was lookin' thin and pale, boys, with little lines all over the place
Sometimes I wake up with my woman sometimes another man's girl
And all those little white lines, little white lines gonna set fire to my whole world

[Chorus]
Little white lines on the highway
Ill pick you up if you're goin' my way and you wanna roll
All those little white lines pullin' me down the highway
Its a dusty, bumpy road if you're goin my way

Got myself in a little mess got busted down around Abilene
I was goin' way to fast boys feelin' lonesome, on'ry and mean
That judge said: Shave your face boy I'm kickin' you down the line
Now those little white lines, little white lines got me doin 20 years of hard time

Oh no! Take me back to the way it was now boy!

[Shooter talks]

[Chorus]
Little white lines on the highway
Ill pick you up if you're goin' my way and you wanna roll
All those little white lines pullin' me down the highway
Its a dusty, bumpy road if you're goin my way

Yes Sir
Oh yes Sir
Yes Sir
No I haven't been drinking tonight
Oh my wife's license I think I left them in my other pants
These pills are for my back... I have a bad back.
You want me to what? I ain't getting out of this car
You want me to take what? What if I refuse
Ah Man you want me to shave my what?
Oh Hell not this again
Hey man these cuffs are a little too tight.
BUSTED AGAIN?

A long time ago in a swamp far, far away...
Where Louisiana meets Texas and the snakes fall off the tree
The critters are gettin' restless, gettin' greedy and mean
The frogs all hate the toads, crocks all hate the gators
Ain't nobody gettin' along, they ain't teams, man, they just players
(Oh no) They all hatin'
They don't know
They all gonna get it!
(Oh no) They all hatin'
They all green, they don't see
They all gonna get it!
Trees fell in the river, cuttin' off the water to the swamp
But the critters didn't feel the tremor, chasin' tails around the stump
Birds flyin' by could spot it from the sky but only one froggy knew
That a gator with them big ol' teeth could chew down trees like a piece of meat
But the frog stood on up and used a little froggy voice
Y'all don't see we gotta get it together, right now we gotta make a choice!
Before the frog got his next word out all anybody saw was a gator mouth
Swallowin' the froggy whole, while the toads and the crocks all cheered about
(Oh no) They all hatin'
Swamps dryin' out, they don't know
They all gonna get it!
(Oh no) They all hatin'
They don't see
They all gonna get it!

If I get to drunk tonight, Jesus gonna drive me home
If I get to drunk tonight, Jesus gonna drive me home
If I get to drunk tonight, Jesus gonna drive me home
Drive me home, drive me home, drive me home

If I get locked up tonight, Jesus gonna go my bail

Go my bail, go my bail, go my bail
When I go through hell tonight, Jesus gonna ride shotgun
When I'm closin' on a state line, Jesus gonna ride shotgun
Caught my woman with another guy so I had to shoot her with a shotgun
Jesus, come and get me my good Lord

Aviators Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Electric Rodeo

Now darling, I know we've had our problems lately and you've left me after all these years and I know I probably could've treated you better along the line I've seen my mistakes like that time that I took you to Waffle House and you made me mad and I made you walk home in the rain but you never got my sense of humor anyway no you never laughed at my jokes

I never meant to hurt you
I never understood the hillbilly things I do
If our love don't work now darling maybe later
You can't see the tears behind my aviators

And oh I know I probably should've come home more often on those long lonely winter nights but you know out of all those women I was always your number one
And I'm sorry about that time I got drunk and hit on your mom and slashed your daddy's tires but I figured they had it coming and I'm sorry about that time that I accidentally shot your dog while I was hunting and I told you he ran away oh wait a minute I told you that didn't I? Oh darling

I could never share those secrets of my heart
I feel so much closer to you now that we're apart
If our love don't work now darling then maybe later
You can't see the tears behind my aviators

Bad Magick Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Electric Rodeo

The sun don't burn fast enough for me
In a cloud of smoke my conscience becomes clean
A long and lonesome road I've travelled to be free
And I carry no one and no one carries me
And I sleep away the days and ride the night
To another lonely town and lonely night
But I'll ride away with my freedom in my hands
To die another day in the broken promise land
Yeah, I'll ride away and I'll leave you with the sun
To a life some would call tragic
I was born unto the gun and I practice
Bad Magick
The wind at my back, the desert at my feet
I know no love, my only fried is my steed
No one called family, my ties are severed clean
My mother is the mountain, my father is the stream
If you see me young lady, just turn and walk away
I'll be gone in the morn before you wake

It Ain't Easy Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Electric Rodeo

When I was just a young boy,
my daddy came to me, said son
Out in this world theres a lotta things
that'll make you feel like your supposed
to be. You don't have to read the good book, to be a good man just the same.
And forget about the money, money ain't brought nothing to your daddy but pain.
It ain't easy.
It ain't eeaasyy...
But you'll be alright
Now it's 15 years later, and I'm out on the road, and it's been 4 years to day he died, and they won't even play us on the radio.
And I think I've found my way alright without him here to catch me now and again,
I just keep on moving along, keeping my mind on my song, and trying to figure out love.
And it ain't easy.
It ain't eeaasyy.
But I'll be alright.
Any other fool, any other fool would throw this away.
Any other fool, yeah.
I wanna take a minute to thank you, for all the things that you done,
yeah you gave me a light in the dark of night, when there was no place to hide, no where to run.
And it ain't easy.
It ain't eeaasyy...
It ain't easy, it ain't easy.
But you'll be alright.
We'll be alright.
It ain't eeeeaaaassssy...

This Ol' Wheel Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road
This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

Oh gravel and dust fly up off of truck tires
down a dirt road
In Nashville, In the summertime, In 1996
I was listenin' to my dad and Johnny Cash
Doin' chain gang and talkin' trash with Savannah and smokin' cigarettes
But it wasn't that long till I tasted the salt of the sea
Cause she was still in love with the guy she left for me so
She stood there cryin' as I packed my pack
And I knew that I was lyin' when I said that I'd be back

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road
This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

Now fast forward to about 2000 and 3
I'm standin' on the corner of Hollywood and Vine
Just a six string and me
And that capitol building
Lookin' up at that thing
Wonderin' when am I gonna get my chance to sing
But faced with that kind of predicament it'd be pretty hard to to get choked up
When every hero I've had and every band I had broke up
I'm invited to a party and I just can't come cause I know that once I'm in I can't pull out till I'm done

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road
This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

In my last nine to ten old Ah Pook waltzed in
Put his slimy gun to my head and said son this is the end
I said you better get back I got an army of good friends
Who would follow me to hell and I've done the same for them
Besides you're not going to destroy what we've worked so hard to defend
We protect the things we love just like our families did
We picked a long and winding road and we'd do it again
We picked a dark horse and we're gonna ride it till the end

This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road
This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

Tangled Up Roses Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

Looks like The King and 'Cilla
got a little too drunk last night
And we came in and it turned in
to a Hank and Audrey fight

You fixed my face up good
and I broke everything in sight
And as we coasted out on fumes
in raised the light

When you slipped your little hand in mine

And it's them lady like things
that make me go insane
That turn me right around
I fall in love with you again
I wouldn't crave the golden days
without the cold blue rain
Like beauty spiked with pain

Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses

We've grown around each other
right from the very start
And the thorns that sting our side
assure we won't be torn apart

And when our coldest winter seems
that it will never pass
You usher in the summer wind
with a singing of your laugh

You put your little hand in mine

And it's them lady like things
that make me go insane
That turn me right around
I fall in love with you again
I wouldn't crave the golden days
without the cold blue rain
Like beauty spiked with pain

Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses

Your legs wind up around my heart
Like life imitating art
Two lovers strike poses

Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses

Oh, like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses
Like tangled up roses

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be-Bop-A-Lua, Baby What I Say
Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta Woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make it pay
He got the action, he got the motion
Yeah, the boy can play

Turning all the night time into the day

He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk, he do the walk of life

Here comes Johnny and he'll tell you the story
Hand me down mu walkin' shoes
Here come Johnny with the power and the glory
Backbeat the talkin' blues
He got the action, he got the motion
Yeah, the boy can play
Dedication devotion
Turning all the night time into the day

He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk, he do the walk of life

Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be-Bop-A-Lula, Baby What I Say
Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta Woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make it pay
He got the action, he got the motion

Decidation devotion
Turning all the night time into the day

And after all the violence and double talk
There's just a song in the trouble and the strife
You do the walk, you do the walk of life

Old Friend Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

I blew in on Tuesday, and shook off my blues day

And glady indulged in some tea
In the time you'd been biding were the songs you'd been writing
So you glady sang them to me
We talked about old times, the good times, the bad times
And how deep down we're still the same
And we talked about women and the hard times we're livin'
And how some things just never change

[CHORUS]
Oh old friend, I might have gone crazy
If I'd lived alone a moment too long
I'll keep you strong, don't let me get lazy
When the rest of the world leaves me blue
Old friend, thank God I still have you

'Til 3 in the morning we sat there recalling
The times of when we were young
While nights on the town when the world had us down
And the pimps and the songs that they sung
And you'll smoke and you'll ask me how did my life just pass me
Is it something that I'm doin' wrong
And I'll say the answers to all of your questions
Is why we've been friends so long

[CHORUS]
Oh old friend, I might have gone crazy
If I'd lived alone a moment too long
I'll keep you strong, don't let me get lazy
When the rest of the world leaves me blue
Old friend, thank God I still have you

When the rest of the world leaves me blue
Old friend, thank God I still have you
Oh I'm sure glad I do

Slow Train Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf
(feat. The Oak Ridge Boys)

Slow Ride on a slow train
Gonna get back home and
Tell ‘em where I came from

Slow Ride on a slow train
Gonna get back home and
Tell ‘em where I came from

Every night when I close my eyes
My head hurts so bad
that it blows my mind

Every night when I close my eyes
My head hurts so bad
That it blows my mind

Got a devil on my shoulder
And that ain’t nothing new
I keep doin’ what he says
Cause there ain’t nothing else to do

Oh if you got the money
I know where to spend it honey
Gotta get myself straight
Before I lose my cool

Slow Ride on a slow train
Gonna get back home and
Tell ‘em where I came from

Slow Ride on a slow train
Gonna get back home and
Tell ‘em where I came from

The only thing in my days of chains
is this woman in my bed
and this age in my brain

The only thing in my days of chains
is this woman in my bed
and this age in my brain

Slow Ride on a slow train
Gonna get back home and
Tell ‘em where I came from

Slow Ride on a slow train
Gonna get back home and
Tell ‘em where I came from

Slow Ride on a slow train
Gonna get back home and
Tell ‘em where I came from

Slow Ride on a slow train
Gonna get back home and
Tell ‘em where I came from

Woo hoo woo hoo
Yeah
Woo hoo woo hoo
Oh yeah
Woo hoo woo hoo

Woo hoo woo hoo
Yeah
Woo hoo woo hoo
Oh yeah
Woo hoo woo hoo

Slow Ride on a slow train
Gonna get back home and
Tell ‘em where I came from

Slow Ride on a slow train
Gonna get back home and
Tell ‘em where I came from

Concrete Cowboys Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

Concrete Cowboys eat granite grits
They don't always wear hats
or sling guns on their hips

They know a song by the taste on her lips
And he's as lonesome on any given day
as the sound of that far away train
that he prays someday will take him away

Lucky Lucinda was a big city girl
Hungerin' for Country in a Rock-n-Roll world
Dice shooting Darren was a sucker for Mearle
She saw the hollow look in his eyes
She longed to slide his boots under her bed tonight

You'll never make him at home
for he's a ramblin stone
Little girl, he can get darker than you've ever known
And he always rides alone

You're best to leave him alone
for he's a ramblin stone
Little girl, things can get darker than you've ever known
And he always rides alone

Higher Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

Well if life's a bowl of cherries
Why is mine the pits
Well I feel like crap from the bottom of my boots to my hat to my fingertips
I wanna get drunk get stoned get high and hang out with my friends
And all I need is a woman's warmth
And that's where you come in

I wanna get high and then get higher
Every city is just a little bit different in the same way
I wanna get drunk and then get drunker
Live every minute to the limit till the end of my days

Well the bus pulls up the honky tonk
And there's a line around the honky-block
Ya know, that's what these crackers love to see
Ya see I threw out my fishing line and honey I caught you
When after the show in the back of the bus
Oh sweetheart I know what you wanna do

You wanna high and then get higher
Every city is just a little bit different in the same way
Wanna get drunk and then get drunker
Spend every minute to the limit till the end of my days

Now sit down honey I'm gonna tell you the truth for the first time
Oh no dinner no movie no flowers no malls no suit no tie no cell phone calls no promises popcorn roller skates diamond rings
or makin' cakes no brand new fast cars ice cream candy bars checkin' in callin' back no (do you think I'm fat) kiss me once
kiss me twice damn you feel nice thank you dear do you think I might see you next year?

Stoned and then get stoneder
Every woman's just a little bit different in the same way
I wanna get drunk and then get drunker
Yeah live every minute to the limit till the end of my days
Oh yeah spend every minute to the limit till the end of my days

Blood From A Stone Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

There was a time when I would lie and say I needed you
'Cause I didn't have nowhere else to go
Yeah, you go your way, I'll go mine
We'll get together, have ourselves a good time
There ain't no use, tryin' to squeeze blood from a stone

Oh, I will go on without you
This ain't the first time I've been high and dry
If I should hold on I'll try to
I'm gonna have to fight but I will get by

The best friend I got said if you can wake up every day
And ask yourself how can I be a better friend
Yeah, when the angels come they're coming down to take you away
You're the one who's gonna have to pay in the end

Oh, I will go on without you
This ain't the first time I've been high and dry
If I should hold on I'll try to
I'm gonna have to fight but I will get by

Yeah, come tomorrow I'll start again
Yeah, I'll never need you and lose myself

Oh, I will go on without you
This ain't the first time I've been high and dry
If should hold on I'll try to
I'm gonna have to fight but I will get by

Oh, I will go on without you
This ain't the first time I've been high and dry
I should hold on I'll try to
I'm gonna have to fight but I will get by

Last Time I Let You Down Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

Well, my mama tried to keep me out of trouble
But the devil wouldn't have it that way
Oh boy, pray and stay humble
Were the last words that I heard her say

And tonight I'll be drivin', way past cryin'
It's last time that I let you down
If I hadn't broken her heart it wouldn't be so hard
To lay her into the cold, cold ground
It's the last time that I let you down

Well, my woman, she's all packed and she's leavin'
Said I crossed that line one too many times
Talk about drinkin' and ridin', hell raisin'
Lord, no, I gave her the ride

And tonight I'll be drivin', way past cryin'
It's last time that I let you down
If I hadn't broken her heart it wouldn't be so hard
To watch her, not turn her down
It's the last time that I let her down

And I pray that I stay out of trouble

Cause tonight I'll be drivin', way past cryin'
It's last time that I let you down
I'll be goin' under the den until this road ends
Maybe then I'll turn it around
It's the last time that I let you down

Yeah, it's the last time that I let you down
Oh, it's the last time that I let you down

She Lives In Color Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

O darlin' that satin gown
So beautiful you shut my mouth
No need to read our love aloud
Go on and put those candles out
And gone to me

Had a feeling since I was three
That there was something else inside of me
That I didn't want the world to see
You're the one that brought that out of me

She is a diamond, who shatters like glass
She lives in color, in a world white and black, and after it all

There were times when things got bad
I didn't want to see the love you had
There were friends and lovers in my wake
Like a lighthouse you sailed me in safe

She is a diamond, who shatters like glass
She lives in color, in a world white and black, and after it all

The Wolf Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

Buyin' a pack of Winston Lights
at the news stand and five and dime
I caught a borrowed glance at the problems of the world

Everything either too high or low
Am I country enough or too rock-n-roll
And God bless poor Anna Nicole

Can't find no shelter from the storm that's coming on
Yeah stick together, or just die like the other dogs
I just can't weather this feeling like I don't belong
In the midst of helter skelter, I just can't find no shelter for The Wolf

Oh, no no

I keep on writing my songs to sing, along this two bit smoke parade
I never wanted the money, and I never wanted fame
Like everyone else who rides my name
Who's poised to push right me in front of that train
And make out like pirates, while I sink in the rain

Can't find no shelter from the storm that's coming on
Yeah stick together, or just die like the other dogs
I can't weather this feeling like I don't belong
Oh, the midst of helter skelter, I just can't find no shelter for The Wolf

Ohhh, no no nooo

{Just can't find no shelter}
No, na no, na no, na no, na no, na no, no
{Just can't find no shelter}

I just can't find no shelter for The Wolf

Oh, no shelter, from the storm that's coming on
Yeah stick together, or just die like the other dogs
Oh, I just can't weather, this feeling like I don't belong
Oh, the midst of helter skelter, I just can't find no shelter
Oh, the midst of helter skelter, I just can't find no shelter for The Wolf

Oh, no no nooo

A Matter Of Time Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : The Wolf

If I go crazy
or if I pull through
its only a matter of time
till I loose my reason
the way I lost you
its only a matter of time

Frauline I miss climbing your vines
one taste of your fruit and I grow as high as the tall tall pines

And if I go crazy
or if I pull through
its only a matter of time
till I loose my reason
I've already lost you
its only a matter of time

I'm fine honey
I'm not loosing my mind
I'm just watching the bubbles as they sink and I fly
become one with the blue sky

If I go crazy
or if I pull through
its only a matter of time
till I hit bottom
the bottle hits bottom too
its only a matter of time

Wake Up! Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Black Ribbons

They say good fences
Make good neighbors

For you my friend
This might be true

But you still gotta put
The boards on the windows
To the soul inside of you

That t.v. in the corner
That's their greatest tool
They poison you mind
When you're a child

With their fear
And their guilt
And their rules

They teach you that you're just a number
As they program you in school
So by the time you're out
In their world on your own
You've been trained not to bite
The hand of the cruel

Wake up!

Don't believe that the system is failing
Don't believe that the planet is dead

They'll keep all the food for their fat fucking bellies
And the starving will kill or be fed

And they'll try to turn me against you
So divided,we'll turn to them
Because anything strong cannot be conquered from without
Before first being conquered from within.

Don't let them get you down.
Don't let them get you down.

Don't let them get you down.
Don't let them get you down.
Don't let them get you down.
Don't let them get you down.

Life is a movie,we are all actors
Don't let them edit you out.

Life is a movie,we are all actors
Don't let them edit you out.

Don't let them get you down.
Don't let them get you down.

Don't let them get you down.
Don't let them get you down.

Triskaidekaphobia Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Black Ribbons

When I check in to 1410
I know what room I'm really in tonight.
Screams from the room coming down the hall
Take me back to a place that I can't recall in my mind.

The jack of hearts will break me,
Makes me feel like Judas, baby.
Does he ever float through your mind?
The jack of hearts is aching,
Silent like a fucus, baby.
Does he ever crash into your mind?

Fear of God and fear of black power,
Fear of the end of the burning tower, collide.
When all of a sudden the door blows open,
Wind starts howling, knocking candles out and she arrives.

The queen of hearts will break me,
Makes me feel like Judas, baby.
Does she ever float through your mind?
Queen of hearts is aching,
Silent like a fucus, baby.
Does she ever crash into your mind?

King of hearts will break me,
Makes me feel like Judas, baby.
Does he ever float through your mind?
King of hearts is aching.
Silent like a fucus, baby.
Does he ever shoot into your mind?

God Bless Alabama Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Black Ribbons

[Verse]
You made together forever
In a little way today
This one is a blessed one
Don't you wish they could all be that way
There's a diamond in this city
Cuts through alleys and gray skies
Even through days of darkness
There's always a ray of light

[Chorus]
God Bless Alabama
The wild wandering rose
Shes got some angels
Watching out down the road

[Verse]
Keep it simple when life gets crazy
Sometimes it's crazy all the time
Good things aren't a dime a dozen
When you find a good thing, you gotta treat it right
Were all hopeful dreamers
And I bet you'll be one too
There are many roads to follow
The only safe one is the truth

[Chorus]

Fuck You (I'm Famous) Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Black Ribbons

To all the kids that picked on me in school:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
Who locked me out 'cause I wasn't cool:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
To all the girls that said I wouldn't make it:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
The girls that I couldn't get naked:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
To all the suckers that said I wouldn't matter:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
You're still hanging from your social ladder:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
To all the sleeze that got me on my knees:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
From the top of the trees, I can smell your disease

Who else?

To all the teachers in the front of the class:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
You get home and your wife kicks your ass:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
To all the hypocrites that said I was a hack:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
To all the faggot friends that never had my back:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
And all the thieves that tried to rob me blind:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
Took advantage 'cause they knew I was kind:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
To all the suits that denied me a break:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
That they all want a piece of the shake and bake. Fuck you, I'm famous!

Yeah they do
It's good tasting shake and bake, too
'Cause I shake shit up
That's what I do
I shake shit up
Aw, yeah
I shake shit up
Oh, I shake shit up

To all the kids that picked on me in school:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
Who put me down 'cause I wasn't cool:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
To all the women that said I wouldn't make it:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
I got all of your friends naked:
Fuck you, I'm famous!
I got pictures too.

Black Ribbons Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Black Ribbons

Broke down at the end of the night
Can't seem to get anything right
So numb I can't feel things anymore
Somehow could feel me letting go

I know there's so many things
That I need to do and I need to say
No matter how hard I try
I can't get the words out right

Man down, tie a ribbon around my soul
I'm in the black and I'm out of control
Like a ship that's lost in the night
With no direction or guiding light

Man down and I'm drowning in the pain
Face down like a needle in the vein
You're the only thing that keeps me sane
But somehow I can't keep you out of my rain

I see you standing in the rain

The lights in the city feel so bright
All these colors I've got inside
And in these streets I feel like a foreigner
All I paint is myself in a corner

Going on seems to hurt so much
All the world seems so cold to the touch
When I go to sleep I don't dream
I just see a blank television screen

Man down, tie a ribbon around my soul

I'm in the black and I'm out of control
Like a ship that's lost in the night
With no direction or guiding light

Man down and I'm drowning in the pain
Face down like a needle in a vein
You're the only thing that keeps me sane
But somehow I can't keep you out of my rain

I see you standing in the rain

Tie a ribbon for the child in me
On every door and on every tree
Make it black for the way that I feel
'Cause black is the only color that's real

Man down, tie a ribbon around my soul
I'm in the black and I'm out of control
Like a ship that's lost in the night
With no direction or guiding light

Man down and I'm drowning in their pain
Face down like a needle in a vein
You're the only thing that keeps me sane
But somehow I can't keep you out of my rain

I see you standing in the rain

Broke down at the end of the night
Can't seem to get anything right

Summer Of Rage Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Black Ribbons

Chaos is hanging around.
Put your ear to the ground and shudder from the sound.
The death machine ain't slowing down.
It's gaining pound for pound.

A gas mask is a good tool in the summer of rage.
The building mass graves within the states.
You and I they'll vaccinate.
They're preparing us for an all out police state.

Hush,hush little child your world is going wild.
Can't trust nothing but the love in your momma's eyes.
Hush,hush little child salvation's in your smile.
Just wish I could be alive to see the whole thing in her eyes.

Our only weapon's total defiance.
Let our love for our neighbors guide us.
Speak loud when they try to silence.
Withhold when they try to fight us.

Hush,hush little child your world is going wild.
Can't trust nothing with the love in your momma's eyes.
Hush,hush little child salvation's in your smile.
Just wish I could be 'round to see the whole thing in her eyes.

Hush,hush little child your world is going wild.
Can't trust nothing with the love in your momma's eyes.
Hush, hush little child salvation's in your smile.
Just wish I could be 'round to see the whole thing in her eyes.

The Deed And The Dollar Lyrics

Artist : SHOOTER JENNINGS
Album : Family Man

She got a special way
It makes me happy everyday
What do the old folks say
She's finer than frog hair split four ways

When I'm feelin' low
She reminds me that there's always tomorrow
I kinda wonder if she knows
My sun comes up just to hear her crowe

She don't just own me
She has grown me
In her secret garden deep in love's holler
Wherever she goes
I know she knows
That I will always follow
She's got me chain and collar
She owns the deed
She owns the dollar

We know we're a good match
That's why at our hips, we're attached
She's such a good catch
Got me grinning like a goat
At a briar patch

She makes me feel just like a king
I'm always happy for what each day brings
She never loses sight of the important things
But she's wild as a junebug on a string

She don't just own me
She has grown me
In her secret garden deep in love's holler
Wherever she goes
I know she knows
That I will always follow
She's got me chain and collar
She owns the deed
She owns the dollar

She don't just own me
She has grown me
In her secret garden deep in love's holler
Wherever she goes
Lord I know she knows
That I will always follow
She's got me chain and collar
She owns the deed
She owns the dollar

Oh, she owns the deed
She owns the dollar

Baby Don't Go Lyrics

Artist : SONNY & CHER
Album : Baby Don't Go

Baby don't go,
Pretty baby please don't go

I never had a mother,
I hardly knew my dad
I've been in town for eighteen years
You're the only boy I've had
I can't stay,
Maybe I'll be back some day

Baby don't go,
Pretty baby please don't go
I love you so,
Pretty baby please don't go

I never had no money
I bought at the second hand store
The way this old town laughs at me
I just can't take it no more
I can't stay,
I'm gonna be a lady some day

Baby don't go,
Pretty baby please don't go
I love you so,
Pretty baby please don't go

When I get to the city,
My tears will all be dry
My eyes will look so pretty
No one's gonna know I cried
Yes I'm goin' away,
Maybe I'll be back some day

Baby don't go,
Maybe I'll be back some day
Baby don't go

La la love is, la la la la love is
La la love is, la la la la love is
La la love is, la la la la love is

Love, love is strange
A lot of people take it for a game
Once you get it you never wanna quit
After you've had it, it all fits

La la love is, la la la la love is

They say love is money in the hand
Your sweet lovin' is better than a kiss
When you leave me sweet kisses are missed

I Got You Babe Lyrics

Artist : SONNY & CHER
Album : Look At Us

They say we're young and we don't know
We won't find out until we're grown
Well I don't know if all that's true
'Cause you got me, and baby I got you

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

They say our love won't pay the rent
Before it's earned,
Our money's all been spent
I guess that's so, we don't have a pot
But at least I'm sure
Of all the things we got

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

I got flowers in the spring
I got you to wear my ring
And when I'm sad, you're a clown
And if I get scared, you're always around

Don't let them say your hair's too long
'Cause I don't care,
With you I can't go wrong
Then put your little hand in mine
There ain't no hill or mountain
We can't climb

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

I got you to hold my hand
I got you to understand
I got you to walk with me
I got you to talk with me
I got you to kiss goodnight
I got you to hold me tight
I got you, I won't let go
I got you to love me so
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

Oh, oh my love
My darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long and lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much

God speed your love to me

Lonely mountain's gaze
At the sea, at the sea
At the lonely open arms of the sea
All one I gaze at the sea, at the sea
All lone I gaze at the sea faithfully

Oh, oh my love
Oh my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long and lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love
I need your love

Then He Kissed Me Lyrics

Artist : SONNY & CHER
Album : Look At Us

When he walked up to me
And he asked me if I wanted to dance
He looked kind of nice and
So I said I might take a chance

When we danced I held her tight
Then I walked her home that night
And all the stars were shinning bright
And then he kissed me-Then I kissed her

Each time I saw him
I couldn't wait to see him again
I wanted to let him know
That he was more than a friend
I didn't know just what to do
So I whispered I love you
I said that I love him too
And then he kissed me-Then I kissed her

He kissed me in a way
That I never been kissed before
He kissed me in a way
That I wanna be kiss forever more
I knew she was mine
So I gave her all the love that I had
Then one day I took her home
To meet my mom and my dad
Then he ask me to be his bride
Always to be right by his side
I felt so happy I almost cried
And then he kissed me-Then I kissed her

Then he ask me to be his bride
Always to be right by his side
I felt so happy I almost cried
And then he kissed me-Then I kissed her

And then he kissed me
And then I kissed her
And then he kissed me
And then I kissed her
