Driftwood Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Blue Jungle

I'm just driftwood
Drifting with the winds that blow across the sky
I can't always be here with you, babe
I'm just driftwood drifting by

Our lives came together
Somehow we came to mingle for a while
Like two colors of the rainbow
We blended well together for a while

But I won't ever anchor down
The Lord above has numbered all my days
I'm just driftwood
And I think it's time I drifted on aways

I'm just driftwood
Drifting with the winds that blow across the sky
I can't always be here with you, babe
I'm just driftwood drifting by

Never No Mo' Blues Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Blue Jungle

I'm just as blue as I can be
Since Susie said goodbye to me
My life is a failure, I see
And she won't be my gal
No mo', no mo', no mo', no mo' - no mo'

I'll pack my things in a grip
Take me a long ocean trip
Out on a great big steam ship
She'll never see her daddy
No mo', no mo' - no mo'

Still I hate to say farewell
To my mammy and my sister Lil
They're sure gonna cry
When I tell that I ain't comin' home
No mo', no mo' - no mo'

I may be sorry someday
That I leave here and go away
But they need not ask me stay
For I'll never change my mind
No mo', no mo' - no mo'

Now whether I'm right or wrong
I'm gonna be gone before long
And then I'll hush this crazy song
And I never will sing
No mo', no mo' - no mo'

Album : If I Could Only Fly

Watching while some old friends do a line
Holding back the want to end my own addicted mind
Wishin' it was still the thing even I could do
Wishin' all these old things were new.

Watching while some young men go to jail
And they show it all on TV just to see somebody fail
And I guess there's not a single thing a man like me can do
Wishin' all these old things were new.

Wishin' all these old things were new
Good times like the roaring 20's and the roaring 80's too
Thinking about the good old days before it all fell through
Wishin' all these old things were new.

The kids don't want my cigarettes around
They say it's time that dad should lay tobacco down
But if I could start all over guess I'd still do what I do
Wishin' all these old things were new.

Wishin' all these old things were new
Good times like the roaring 20's and the roaring 80's too
Thinking about the good old days before it all fell through
Wishin' all these old things were new.

Wishin' all these old things were new...

Honky Tonky Mama Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : If I Could Only Fly

If you go down to the bottom
Better watch the way you act
If you fool around them honkies
You will never make it back.

When you get in trouble
The best you can do is lose
For them honky tonky moma's
They'll give you the honky blues.

I went down to the bottom
Just a week ago today
Met a honky tonky baby
And I couldn't get away.

Lost all my money
And brand new padded shoes
For them honky tonky moma's
They had them honky blues.

I drank a half of pint a liquor
And a half a pint of gin
Saw my honky tonky mama
Foolin' around some other men.

Really felt mistreated
My baby I was about to lose
Got jealous of my baby
I had them old honky tonky blues, sure did.

She's a honky tonky mama
Got her honky tonky way's
She got me in trouble
Now I'm servin day's.

Big policmen got me
Would not turn me lose
Took me down to the station
Locked me in the county blues, good mornin' judge.

When I go back to the bottom
Gonna watch my p's and q's
Or them honky tonky mama's
Will be givin' me the blues.

Gonna have protection
I think I have paid my dues
I'll find me a honky tonky moma
And give her back these old honky tonky blues.

I'll find me a honky tonky moma
And give her these old honky tonky blues.

I'll find me a honky tonky moma
And give her these old honky tonky blues...

Turn To Me Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : If I Could Only Fly

When the whole world turns against you
And life won't let you be
When you need someone to turn to
Turn to me.

When questions go unanxswered
And you wonder what will be
When you need someone to turn to
Turn to me.

I stand on every corner
I'm just around the bend
I've always been here for you
I've always been your friend.

When walls close in around you
I'm the one who sets you free
When you need someone to turn to
Turn to me.

I stand on every corner
I'm just around the bend
I've always been here for you
I've always been your friend.

When walls close in around you
I'm the one who sets you free
When you need someone to turn to
Turn to me, turn to me...

If I Could Only Fly Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : If I Could Only Fly

I almost felt you touching me just now
I wish I knew which way to turn and go
I feel so good and then, then I feel so bad
I wonder what I ought to do

If I could only fly, if I could only fly
I'd bid this place goodbye to come and be with you
But I can hardly stand and I got no where to run
Another sinking sun and one more lonely night

The wind keeps blowing, somewhere, everyday
Tell me things get better, somewhere, up the way
Just dismal thinking on a dismal day
And sad songs for us to bare

If I could only fly
If we could only fly
If we could only fly
There'd be no more lonely nights

You know, sometimes, I write happy songs
Then some little thing goes wrong
I wish they all could make you smile

Coming home soon and I wanna stay
Maybe we can, somehow, get away
I wish you could come with me when I go again

If I could only fly, if I could only fly
I'd bid this place goodbye to come and be with you
But I can hardly stand and I got no where to run
Another sinking sun and one more lonely night

Crazy Moon Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : If I Could Only Fly

Crazy moon, you shine just like there's nothing wrong
Crazy moon, don't you know my baby's gone?
I told her she could leave or change her tune
Crazy me
Crazy moon

Crazy moon, don't you know that she's not here?
Crazy moon, can't you see that I still care?
And I'm going to need to hold her pretty soon
Crazy me
Crazy moon

Crazy moon, your silver light can't find the ground
Cause you're in the sky before the sun goes down
And we waste another lonely afternoon
Crazy me
Crazy moon

(Think About A) Lullaby Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : If I Could Only Fly

Think about a lullaby
Baby, close your eyes
Don't cry
Think about a lullaby

Let me sing you off to sleep
Let Daddy pray your soul to keep
It's safe here with your Mom and I
Think about a lullaby

Think about a butterfly
Think about a lullaby
Think about a cloud in the sky
You can count your little sheep
But babe, you've got to go to sleep
But baby, please don't you cry

I'm Still Your Daddy Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : If I Could Only Fly

I knew someday you'd find out about San Quentin
And your heart would break
And your faith would go away
But it's time you knew the truth about your papa
I've not always been the man I am today

It's true I've done some time in prison
Let me be the first to tell you I was wrong
That was back when I was wild
Back when I was just a child
Back before your mama came along

So don't put me down
Don't push me away
I'm still your daddy baby, baby anyway
Don't put me down
Don't push me away
Daddy needs some family love today

So don't put me down
Don't push me away
I'm still your daddy baby, baby anyway
Don't put me down
Don't push me away
Daddy needs some family love today

So don't put me down
Don't push me away
I'm still your daddy baby, baby anyway
Don't put me down
Don't push me away
Daddy needs some family love today

Proud To Be Your Old Man Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : If I Could Only Fly

I might be over the hill
But you make growing old quite a thrill
So promenade and take me by the hand
You make me proud to be your old man

There's a lot of young men who covet your love
And you place me beyond and above
It's amazing how you understand
'Cos you make me proud to be your old man

You love me in spite of my age
You're always right there by the stage
And you say, "Beauty is found in the soul"
You make it fun to get old
And babe, when you hold like nobody can
You make me proud to be your old man

Hey, when you hold and kiss me like nobody can
You make me proud to be your old man

Always late with your kisses
Won't you come to my arms
Sweet darling and stay
Always late with your kisses
Why, oh why, do you want to do me this way?

How long do you think that I can wait
When you know you're always late
Always late with your kisses
Why oh why do you want to do me this way?

How long do you think that I can wait
When you know you're always late
Always late with your kisses
Why, oh why, do you want to do me this way?

Why, why, why do you want to do me this way?...

More Than My Old Guitar Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

More than my old guitar
More than my old guitar
I love my old guitar like God loves the poor
But I love you e-ven more

You know there's love in our family
And not a lot of hate to ignore
And love is for music and guitar for loving
But I love you e-ven more

More than my old guitar
More than my old guitar
I love my old guitar like God loves the poor
But I love you e-ven more

There'll be no need for saving
If you knew what the Lord had in store
What waits for after the mind can't imagine
But I love you e-ven more

More than my old guitar
More than my old guitar
I love my old guitar like God loves the poor
But I love you e-ven more

If you've got the money, I've got the time
We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time
We'll make all the night spots, dance, drink beer and wine
If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time.

There ain't no use to tarry so let's start out tonight
We'll spread joy, oh boy, oh boy, and we'll spread it right
We'll have more fun, baby, all the way down the line
If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time.

If you've got the money, I've got the time
We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time
Bring along you cadillac, leave my old wreck behind
If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time.

Yes, we'll go honky tonkin' make every club in town
We'll go to the park when it's dark, we won't fool around
But if you run short of money, well, I'll run short of time
'Cause you with no more money, honey, I've no more time.

If you've got the money, I've got the time
We'll go honky tonkin' and we'll have a time
Bring along you cadillac, leave my old wreck behind
If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time...

Look What Thoughts Will Do Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

Once I thought I loved just you
And I thought you loved me too
But just look what thoughts will do
For today you say we're through.

Now another wears the crown
And you think that you have found
Just what makes your world go round
Watch those thoughts they'll get you down.

If within your future years
Your new love should bring you tears
Then you'll think of me I'm sure
But those thoughts won't help you, dear.

Thought I'd build a home for two
Just a home for me and you
Thought we'd have some kiddies too
But just look what thoughts will do.

Now I know just how you feel
That your love was never real
Guess to you I don't appeal
So we'll just forget the deal.

So goodbye and here's to you
And I'm happy through and through
Yes, you thought that I'd be blue
But just look what thoughts will do...

My Baby's Just Like Money Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

Well, my baby's just like money
True while you hold her tight
But if you let her go, she'll blow like dough
Honky-tonk day and night

'Cos a friend of mine, he came and wised me up
This is what he said
"Money goes from hand to hand
And your baby goes to man to man"

Listen now, baby
And I don't mean maybe
Honey, I'm telling you
You're making me blue
That's why I know it's true

'Cos I found out, honey
You're just like money
Root of all evil
Money goes from hand to hand
And you know you go from man to man

Yeah, my baby's just like money
She goes everywhere
And I'm telling you her love's untrue
And I know that she don't care

Just as long as she's got a ticket to ride
That gal's satisfied
Money goes from hand to hand
And my baby goes to man to man

Listen here, baby
And I don't mean maybe
You got to change your ways starting today
Or your daddy's not gonna stay

'Cos I found out, honey
You're just like money
Root of all evil
Money goes from hand to hand
You know you go from man to man

When you were sad and lonely and have no place to go
Call me up, sweet baby and bring along some dough
And we'll go honky tonkin'. honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin', honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round the town.

Call me up sweet mama and we'll go steppin' out
We'll go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'
We'll go honky tonkin', honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round the town.

When you go to the city, to the city fair
If you come to the city then you will find me there
And we'll go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'
We'll go honky tonkin', honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round this town...

When you are sad and lonely and have no place to go
Call me up sweet baby and bring along some dough
We'll go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'
We'll go honky tonkin', honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round the town...

Runaway Mama Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

She's my run away mama
Always chasing other men
She's my run away mama
She's somewhere and gone again.

If you see this kind of lady,
Kind of tall, kind of slim.
She's my runaway mama.
Call the law and turn her in

She's got lots of pretty things
That a man cannot ignore.
And she's standing out in a bar room
When she walks out on the floor.

If you see this kind of woman
Thumbling a ride and showing skin.
She's my runaway mama.
Call the law and turn her in.

If you see a woman flirting
And she's hurting a bunch of men.
She's my runaway mama.
Call the law and turn her in.

If you see her somewhere dancing
On a table in a bar.
Go and call the chief of police
And try to tell 'em where you are.

She's my runaway mama,
Always chasing other men
She's my runaway mama,
She's somewhere and gone again.

If you see this kind of lady
Thumbing a ride and showing skin.
She's my runaway mama.
Call the law and turn her in.

She's my runaway mama.

I'll Sign My Heart Away Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

I'll sign my heart away in court tomorrow,
When I sign the papers that will set you free.
But to part this way is to my sorrow,
My heart will brake to see them take your love away.

I'll tell my friends I'm glad it's all over,
But when I do I'll wipe the tears away.
You'll smile and take the hand of your new lover,
After tomorrow when I sign my heart away.

I'll take the blame give back the name you wanted,
He's done you wrong I'll hear the law say.
But they'll never know how I'll be haunted,
After tomorrow when I sign my heart away.

The Wild Side Of Life Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

You wouldn't read my letters if I wrote them
You ask me not to call you on the phone
But there's something I'm wanting to tell you
So I wrote it in the words of this song.

I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one who ever loved you
And went on back to the wild side of life.

The glamour of the gay nightlife has lured you
To the places where the wine and liquor flow
Where you waited to be somebody's baby
And forget the truest love you'll ever know.

I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one who ever loved you
Then went on back to the wild side of life...

Take These Chains From My Heart Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

Take these chains from my heart and set me free
You've grown cold and no longer care for me
All my faith in you hass gone but the heartaches linger on
Take these chains from my heart and set me free.

Take these tears from my eyes so I can see
Just a spark of the love that used to be
If you love somebody new let me find somebody too
Take these chains from my heart and set me free.

Give my heart just a word of sympathy
Be as fair to my heart as you can be
Then if you no longer care for the love that's beating there
Take these chains from my heart and set me free.

Take these chains from my heart and set me free
You've grown cold and no longer care for me
All my faith in you is gone but the heartaches linger on
Take these chains from my heart and set me free...

I Want To Be With You Always Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Roots, Vol. 1

I lose my blues, honey
When I'm with you
No one else can do
You're in my heart to stay.

But when I'm gone
And I'm all alone
I'll be singing a song
I want to be with you always.

I'd be happy, dear
If you could only be here
And always be near
Forever and a day.

Then we could travel far
To some big shining star
Just me and my guitar
And stay like sweethearts for always.

I hope you feel the same
You really want my name
You'll be the one who's to blame
If it works out wrong that day.

'Cause my love is true
My love is only for you
I'll never be blue
If I can be with you, always...

As Time Goes By Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Unforgettable

You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.

And when two lovers woo
They still say: "I love you."
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs, never out of date
Hearts full of passion, jealousy and hate
Woman needs man and man must have his mate
That no one can deny.

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs, never out of date
Hearts full of passion, jealousy and hate
Woman needs man and man must have his mate
That no one can deny.

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by...

Gypsy Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Unforgettable

In a quaint caravan
There's a lady they call the gypsy
She can look in the future
And dry away all your tears.

Everything will come right
If you'll only believe the gypsy
You could tell at a glance
That my heart was so full of fears.

She looked at my hand and told me
That my lover was always true
But deep in my heart I knew, dear
Somebody else was kissing you.

But I'll go there again
'Cause I want to believe the gypsy
That my lover is true
And will come back to me someday.

She looked at my hand and told me
That my lover was always true
But deep in my heart I knew, dear
Somebody else was kissing you

But I'll go there again
'Cause I want to believe the gypsy
That my lover is true
And will come back to me someday.

That my lover is true
And will come back to me someday...

Unforgettable that's what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone meanrt more.

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too.

Stardust Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Unforgettable

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
I am once again with you.

When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
Oh, but that was long ago
And now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song.

Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
And you are in my arms
The nightingale sings it's fairy tale
Of paradise where roses bloom.

Though I dream in vain
In my heart it always will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain.

Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
And you are in my arms
The nightingale sings it's fairy tale
Of paradise where roses bloom.

Though I dream in vain
In my heart it always will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain...

I Can't Get Started Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Unforgettable

I've flown around the world in a plane
I've settled revolutions in Spain
The North Pole I have charted
But can't get started with you

Around the golf course I'm under par
And all the movies want me to star
I've got a house, a show place
But I get no place with you

You're so supreme, lyrics I write of you
Scheme, just for a sight of you
Dream, both day and night of you
And what good does it do?

In 1929 I sold short
In England I'm presented at court
But you've got me downhearted
'Cause I can't get started with you

You're so supreme, lyrics I write of you
Scheme, just for a sight of you
Dream, both day and night of you
And what good does it do?

In 1929 I sold short
In England I'm presented at court
But you've got me downhearted
'Cause I can't get started with you

Pennies From Heaven Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Unforgettable

Every time it rains, it rains
Pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven.

You'll find your fortunes falling
All over town
Make sure that your umbrella
Is upside down.

Trade them for a package of
Sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love
You must have showers.

So when you hear it thunder
Don't run under a tree
There'll be pennies from heaven
For you and me.

Every time it rains, it rains
Pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven.

You'll find your fortunes falling
All over town
Make sure that your umbrella
Is upside down.

Trade them for a package of
Sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love
You must have showers.

So when you hear it thunder
Don't run under a tree
There'll be pennies from heaven
For you and me.

Cry Me A River Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Unforgettable

Now you say you're lonely
You cried the whole night through
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you.

Now you say goodbye
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you.

You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head
Why you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember all that she said
Said that love was to plebian
Said you were through with me.

An' now you say you love me
And just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river, cry me a river
I've cried a river over you.

You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head
Why you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember all that she said
Said that love was to plebian
Said you were through with me.

An' now you say you love me
And just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river, cry me a river
I've cried a river over you.

But gold won't bring you happiness

The world is still the same, you'll never change it
Just as long as the stars shine above
Well, you're nobody 'til somebody loves you
So find yourself somebody to love.

What Love Can Do Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Unforgettable

What love can do
Is build a bridge for two
And make our dreams come true
That's what love can do.

What love can do
Is make his need to live
And make you want to give
Thats's what love can do

And when your whole world
Goes spinnin' out of control and you're alone
And you're needin' someone to hold
An old friend from somewhere touches your soul
And love comes true.

What love can do
Is a way to make you smile
And make your life worth while
That's what love can do

And when your whole world
Goes spinnin' out of control and you're alone
And you're needin' someone to hold
An old friend somewhere touches your soul
And love comes true.

What love can do
This make you want to smile
Can change the world around
That's what love can do

Goin' Away Party Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Unforgettable

I'm throwin' a goin' away party
A party for a friend of mine
So put me somewhere off in a corner
With a glass and bottle of your party wine.

Don't worry it won't be a loud party
I feel too low to get too high
It's just a sad goin' away party
For a dream I'm telling goodbye.

I'm throwin' a goin' away party
A party for a dream of mine
Nobody's coming but a heartache
And some tears will drop in now most anytime.

Don't worry it won't be a loud party
Dreams don't make noise when they die
And so since it's a goin' away party
Go away and let me cry.

Hey, it's just a sad goin' away party
For a dream I'm telling goodbye, goodbye...

Where's All The Freedom Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Chicago Wind

Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?
Is it still our creed from shore to shore?
Every soldier fights, should we read him his new rights?
There's not that many to read any more
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

Where's all the freedom that we fought to save?
Is it gone for good with yesterday?
Hey, it ain't no fun around and it's the same in every town
Ain't sure of the ten commandments anymore
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

My grandson done gone to battle
And I'm somewhere below Seattle
Can't afford to take my car to the grocery store
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

My grandson done gone to battle
And I'm somewhere below Seattle
Countin' the cars with police across the door
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

Where's all the freedom that we're prayin' for?
Are we a nation under God any more?
How long do we cower down, is this really still our ground?
Our country's like a prisoner of war
Where's all the freedom that we're fightin' for?

White Man Singin' The Blues Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Chicago Wind

The old man paid no mind to color
'Cause he knew that I'd been down and out
Old Joe said that I was a soul brother
The things I been singin' about.

He liked like I played my old guitar
He sat by beside me the same
Together we hung out an old timy blues
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm.

Oh, we sing aside a railroad track
For people have nothing to lose
I'm a son of a gambler who's luck never came
And a white man singin' the blues.

We both done a heap of hard livin'
And hard to discribing the song
But the blues was one thing we both understood
And the old man hummed right along.

Oh, we sing aside a railroad track
For people have nothing to lose
I'm a son of a gambler who's luck never came
And a white man singin' the blues...

Leavin's Not The Only Way To Go Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Chicago Wind

Do the mornin's still come early, are the nights not long enough?
Does a tear of hesitation fall on everything you touch?
Well, it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

Maybe lyin' at your feelin's, grow accustomed to the dark
By mornin's light, it just might solve the problems of the heart
And it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

People reach new understandings all the time
Take a second look, maybe change their minds
People reach new understandings every day
Tell me not to reach, babe, and I'll go away

But do the mornin's still come early, are the nights not long enough?
Does a tear of hesitation fall on everything you touch?
Well, it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

People reach new understandings all the time
Take a second look, maybe change their minds
People reach new understandings every day
Tell me not to reach, babe, and I'll go away

But do the mornin's still come early, are the nights not long enough?
Does a tear of hesitation fall on everything you touch?
Well, it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

Honky Tonk Man Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Chicago Wind

I never seen you look quite so sad
An' I never felt me feel quite so bad
An' I know we both feel that we've been had
I guess that we're just not that strong

'Cause I lost my woman and you've lost your man
Who knows who's right or who's wrong?
But I still got my guitar and I've got a plan
Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man

Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man
An' we'll get through the night the best way we can
It's the best old pain killer since hurtin' began
Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man

I miss my woman an' you miss your man too
But there's not a helluva lot that we can do
But cling to each other till the hurtin's through
An' the hurt can only last just so long

You be my woman an' I'll be your man
Even if just for a while
I still got my guitar and I've got a plan
Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man

Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man
An' we'll get through the night the best way we can
It's the best old pain killer since hurtin' began
Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man
Throw your arms 'round this honky tonk man

America First Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Chicago Wind

Why don't we liberate these United States,
We're the ones that need it worst.
Let the rest of the world help us for a change,
And let's rebuild America first.

Our highways an' bridges are fallin' apart:
Who's blessed an' who has been cursed?
There's things to be done all over the world,
But let's rebuild America first.

Who's on the Hill and who's watchin' the valley?
An' who's in charge of it all?
God bless the army an' God bless our liberty,
And dadgum the rest of it all.

Yeah, men in position are backin' away:
Freedom is stuck in reverse.
Let's get out of Iraq an' get back on the track,
And let's rebuild America first.

Why don't we liberate these United States,
We're the ones who need it the most.
You think I'm blowin smoke? Boys it ain't no joke.
I make twenty trips a year from coast to coast.

It Always Will Be Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Chicago Wind

Sometimes I think that love is somewhere
Living on an island all alone
I can see it in the darkness, I can feel it in the distance
Then it's gone

An' then I know it's time
That I go an' find my favorite girl
An' when I look into her eyes
I see all the love there is in all the world

An' it always will be
It always will be
It always will be
It always will be

There are some things I think about
An' every time I do, it breaks my heart
'Cause there's nothin' I can do
About the loneliness I feel when we're apart

An' I stop, claw the darkness
An' in the distance your face I see
An' when I look into your eyes
I see all the love there is inside of me

An' it always will be
It always will be
It always will be
It always will be

Then I know it's time
That I go an' find my favorite girl
When I look into her eyes
I see all the love there is in all the world

An' it always will be
It always will be
It always will be
It always will be

I Still Can't Say Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Chicago Wind

When I was young
My dad would say
"C'mon son, let's go out an' play"
Seems like only yesterday

When I was all by myself
I'd climb up the closet shelf
Find his hat an' fix the brim
Pretending I was him

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

He took good care
Of Mom an' me
We all cut down the Christmas tree
He always had some time for me

Wind blows through the trees
Street-lights, they still shine bright
Most things are the same
But I miss my dad tonight

I walk by the Salvation Army store
Saw a hat like my daddy wore
Tried it on an' fixed the brim
Still tryin' to be like him

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye, Pa

Some Of Us Fly Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : Chicago Wind

We all come along, in our own given time
No way to compare, such unique design
But there's one common trait,
To the scheme of it all
Some of us fly....all of us fall

When life deals you a hand you don't throw it away
The cards that you draw are the cards that you play
Some don't give a damn,
Some give it there all
Some of us fly....but all of us fall

Some spiral down in a circle
Some climb to steeply and stall
Some make the bet some ponder it yet
Some pass, some raise, some call
Some play it smart
I had a ball
Some of us fly.... but all of us fall

Some squander life, some turn it around
Some look to the sky, but they cant leave the ground
Some reach for the stars
When there already tall
Some of us fly....but all of us fall

I've Seen It Go Away Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : I Am What I Am

I seen 'em when they stepped down on the moon
I seen 'em sail around the world in a hot balloon
I've seen many a great tomorrow turn to yesterday
I've seen 'em, boys, and I've seen it go away

I've seen my share of good times come and go
I seen Bob Wills and Elvis when they did a show
When you've seen the very best, the rest can't hardly play
I've seen it, girls, and I've seen it go away

I've seen it in it's pride and all it's glory
I've seen it through the bars on a dark and stormy day
I've seen it from on high, through the tears I had to cry
The sad part is, I've seen it go away

I watched it all completely fall apart
And I seen our greatest leader break the people's heart
I've seen most of what we got have a whole lot better day
I've seen it, kids, and I've seen it go away

I've seen it in it's pride and all it's glory
I've seen it through the bars on a dark and stormy day
I've seen it from on high, through the tears I had to cry
The sad part is, I've seen it go away

Pretty When It's New Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : I Am What I Am

Love's always lovely when first two lovers meet
Hand in hand, arm in arm, walking down the street
Always seen together in everything they do
Love is always pretty when it's new

Love is always special
Especially to the heart
When it's love on sight and all is right
And there's no doubt from the start

'Fore it starts to crumble
There'll be many shades of blue
Ah but, love is always pretty when it's new

Love is always pretty when it's new
It has nothing bad about it
'Til your lover says, we're through

And old love's even sweeter
That old saying is really true
Love is always pretty when it's new

Altogether
Love is always pretty when it's new
Ah, there is nothing bad about it
'Til your lover says, we're through

And old love's even sweeter
That old saying is really true
Ah but, love is always pretty when it's new

Oil Tanker Train Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : I Am What I Am

The oil tanker train from down on the river
In Southern Pacific and Santa Fe names
Would rumble and rattle the old boxcar we lived in
And I was a kid then and I loved that old train

Loaded with crude oil, headed for town
The boxcar would tremble from the top to the ground
And my mother could feel it even before it came
"Get up son to the window, here comes the oil train"

[Chorus:]
From my checkered past I can always bring back
The memories we felt in that home by the track
And all these years later it's still stuck in my brain
Oh I loved that old oil tanker train

Dad worked for the railroad when I was a kid
And my fondest memories were things that he did
And early one Christmas, after Santa Claus came
There 'neath the tree ran a toy tanker train

[Chorus]

Live And Love Always Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : I Am What I Am

I wanna live and love under the stars above
I wanna hold you close to my heart
You gave me hopes anew when I was sad and blue
Nothin's gonna tear us apart

I sang a lonely song until you came along
I'm headed for that bright sunny day
Honey I'm tellin' you what love can do
I'm gonna live and love always

Yeah I wanna shout hooray, praise that lucky day
When you came walking into my life
I got a change in plans 'cause I'm a different man
I'm thru with all that trouble and strife

I used to be so sad now I feel so glad
I'm headed for that bright sunny day
Honey I'm tellin' you what love can do
I'm gonna live and love always

Yeah, I used to feel so bad now I feel so glad
I'm headed for that bright sunny day
Honey I'm tellin' you what love can do
I'm gonna live and love always

How Did You Find Me Here Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : I Am What I Am

How did You find me, how did You know
I'd be here in this hole in the ground
I can't even see out, over the edge
Lookin' up from all the way down

I thought I had been left here to die
When I saw your face appear
What a surprise
How did You find me here

I thought I could do it, all of it
All by myself

I thought I could win every round
Then I hit rock bottom, the blues, I got 'em
And You lifted me out of my fear
And how did You find me?

Play it, my man, play it

I thought I could do it, all of it
All by myself

I thought I could win every round
Then I hit rock bottom and the blues, I got 'em
You lifted me out of my fear
But how did You find me?

Then I hit rock bottom and the blues, I got 'em
And You lifted me out of the fear
But how did You find me?

Thank you, Lord

Bad Actor Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : I Am What I Am

I've never been much at making believe*
Don't have any tricks hidden up my sleeve.
If life is a comedy, where's all the laughter?
'Cause here on the stage I'm a bad actor.

I don't know what you want me to know.
So I'll take the small parts in our family show.
Tell me which hero you want me to play.
How should I feel, and what do I say?

Pretending to care, pretending to cry.
You say I'll be there, and I say I'll try.
Second hand feelings are always a factor,
In my staring roll as a bad actor.

Please let me know what you want me to see.
Where do you want me to be?
In this old mirror, I'm just a reflection,
But I might be brilliant if you'd give direction.

I have a problem of knowing what's real.
All my emotions I borrow and steal.
Faking my way through every day,
And trying to act like it's better that way

Pretending to care, pretending to cry.
You say I'll be there, and I say I'll try.
Second hand feelings are always a factor,
In my staring roll as a bad actor.

Down At The End Of The Road Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : I Am What I Am

I was looking for a place to hang my hat
And a place to lay me down my heavy load
I found it in the woods, in the cabin on the hill
Down at the end of the road

We were looking for a place to raise a child
'Cause she'd soon be giving birth, the one that showed
And we found it in the woods, in the cabin on the hill
Down at the end of the road

Down at the end of the road
Down at the end of an old country road
We found what we needed for the family we would raise
Down at the end of the road

A girl was born, December 23rd
Just one day short of Christmas Eve
And through the years we tried to move many different times
But we landed on the place we couldn't leave

So we prayed to God that we might have a son
And he was born December '92
And we keep lookin' for a place to move away, move away
But leavin' was a thing we couldn't do

20 years flew by like 20 days
And the blessings grew from the initial seed we'd sown
Our kids will soon be leavin' now
They'll leave us here behind
Down at the end of the road

Down at the end of the road
Down at the end of an old country road
We found what we needed for the family we would raise
Down at the end of the road

Stranger In The City Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : I Am What I Am

I can't be with you this evening
I can't be with you tonight
Somehow you must have read me wrong
I need you to read me right

I'm a stranger in the city
A gypsy passing through
My heart's at home with someone else
I'd be killing time with you

I'm a stranger in the city
And you tried to lead me wrong
I'm in town to do a show tonight
This day, to sing my song

We can never get together
That leaves nothin' left to do
I'm a stranger in the city
Not the man for you

Now I'm not ashamed to feel this way
'Cause I'm a man who has a lot
The kind of love that I have at home, baby
Can't be sold or lost

You've got all it takes to run my life
I've risen to fame 'cause you do
I'm a stranger in the city
Not the man for you
I'm a stranger in the city
Not the man for you

I Am What I Am Lyrics

Artist : MERLE HAGGARD
Album : I Am What I Am

I'm no longer a fugitive
And I'm not on the land
And I'm just around
I am what I am

I do what I do
'Cause I do give a damn
And I'm not a tramp and I'm not a drifter
I am what I am

I won't be a slave
And I won't be a prisoner
I'm just a nephew
To today's Uncle Sam

I believe Jesus is God
And the pig is just ham
And I'm just a seeker, I'm just a sinner
And I'll be what I am

I won't be a slave
And I won't be a prisoner
And I'm just a nephew
To today's Uncle Sam

I believe Jesus is God
And a pig is just ham
And I'm just a seeker, I'm just a sinner
I am what I am

My Tribute / Redeemer Lyrics

Artist : MULLEN, NICOLE C.
Album : Captivated

How can I say thanks for the things you have done for me
Things so undeserved, yet you gave to prove your love for me
The voices of a million angels could not express my gratitude
All that I am and ever hope to be, yeah
I owe it all right now to thee

To God be the glory
To God be the glory
To God be the glory
For the things He has done

Just let me live my life and let it be pleasing, Lord, to thee
And should I gain, should I gain any praise, let it go to Calvary
Calvary

The very same God that spins things in orbit
He runs to the weary, the worn, and the weak
And the same gentle hands that hold me when I'm broken
They conquer death to bring me victory
Now I know my redeemer lives
See I know my redeemer lives
So let all creation testify, let this life within me cry
I know my redeemer...

To God be the glory
To God be the glory
To God be the glory
For the things He has done

With his blood He has saved me
With his power Lord has raised me

To God
To God be the glory
For the things
For the things
I wanna thank Him for His grace His love His faithfulness to me
Thank Him for the things that He has done

Lazy Projector Lyrics

Artist : ANDREW BIRD
Album : Break It Yourself

If memory serves us, then who owns the master
How do we know who's projecting this reel
And is it like gruel or like quick drying plaster
Tell me how long til the paint starts to peel

Is it like Pyramus or Apollo or an archer we don't know
Though history repeats itself, and time's a crooked bow
Come on tell us something we don't know

Now who's the best boy and the casting director
And the editor splicing your face from the scene
It's all in the hands of a lazy projector
That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine
That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine

They say all good things must come to an end
Everyday the night must fall
How it all came to this, I simply can't recall
Too many cooks in the kitchen
How the mighty must fall

But I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all
I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all
I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all
Breaking up at all

And it's all in the hands of a lazy projector
That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine

Near Death Experience Experience Lyrics

Artist : ANDREW BIRD
Album : Break It Yourself

You used to be like toffee,
Between the kitten's teeth -
You used to build arid shelters out of sticks and leaves and
spend the whole day underneath.

You used to be like copper -
Pliable but strong,
You used to smile and nod, say "you're right," be polite,
When you know that everybody's wrong.

So you dare the plane to crash,
redeem the miles for cash when it starts to dive
And we'll dance like cancer survivors -
like we're grateful simply to be alive.

Dare the plane to crash,
redeem the miles for cash
And we'll dance like cancer survivors -
like your prognosis was that you should've died.

No, there's nothing wrong; there's nothing wrong when it starts to down
And we'll dance like cancer survivors -
like we're grateful simply to be alive

No, there's nothing wrong; there's nothing wrong when it starts to down
And we'll dance like cancer survivors

Hole In The Ocean Floor Lyrics

Artist : ANDREW BIRD
Album : Break It Yourself

I woke with a start
Crying bullets, beating heart
To hear all God's creatures
Roaring again

Not a cricket was creaking,
Or a floorboard was squeaking,
And all the world was snoring for show

There's a hole in the ocean floor
There's a hole in the ocean floor
Gonna stop bleeding alone

I woke with a start
Crying bullets, beating heart
To hear all God's creatures
Roaring again...

Or a floorboard was squeaking,
And all the world was snoring for show

There's a hole in the ocean floor
There's a hole in the ocean floor
Gonna stop bleeding alone

I woke with a start
Crying bullets, beating heart
To hear all God's creatures
Roaring again...

Chi-Town Lyrics

Artist : CRIBS, THE
Album : In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull

Meet me down in Chi-Town, in Logan Square underground
You know the one, we were always there.
Meet me down in Chi-Town, in Logan Square underground
You know the one, we were always there.

Forget the airport and cut my hair short
Eat cookies and cream from the store at the end of the street,
There's so much junk in my head, will I only be here when you're dead?
But I'll still think of you to take it out on myself.

Meet me down in Chi-Town, in Logan Square underground
You know the one, we were always there.
Meet me down in Chi-Town, in Logan Square underground
You know the one, we were always there.

At the end of the rainbow, I took a photo
At my [?] do you call that [?] show I want
These things, I was here and now I know I won't return
But still I think of you and to take it out on everyone else.

Meet me down in Chi-Town, in Logan Square underground
You know the one, we were always there.
Meet me down in Chi-Town, in Logan Square underground
You know the one, we were always there.

Meet me down in Chi-Town, in Logan Square underground
You know the one, we were always there.
Meet me down in Chi-Town, in Logan Square underground
You know the one, we were always there.

Whirlwind Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Story Of The New Age Cowboy

Yesterday was a bright shining star on a misty moon,
and today is a broad shout away from where we want to be, but it ain't that bad,
Take a freight train from the east side of town, to the west side and not much changes,
take a cool shade and Sunday afternoon couch, and hear the howling wind.

And I hope you are happier now.....
In this whirlwind.

Light changes before it ever starts to reappear, but it don't matter, people cross anyway,
and everybody wants a heart that they can hold dear, just as long as it is golden in silence.
When you first get off the bus the city seems surreal, and you get lost in it,
and you get hit by the sounds that you never hear...like the howling wind.

And I hope you are happier now.....
In this whirlwind.

Our World Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Story Of The New Age Cowboy

Son you ain't nothin to me, pocketfull of fantasies and dreams,
Son you ain't nothin to me, leave us far behind to make you free,
Mama is still at the front door waiting,
My hand is still left unshaken.
You just left without a word...out of our world.

You can't see what you got, till you open your eyes,
Tell us what's on your mind, or tell us some lies,
Just something to hold, when your out of our lives,
cause left in silence we surely won't survive.

Son, you are something to me, you remind me of how old times used to be,
Son you are something to me, but everyman must cure his own disease,
So run far away, cause it hurts you to stay,
But leave us just one more word 'til your out of our world.

They'll be times when you're shaken down.
You'll be lookin for help, there ain't no one around.
The dreams that brought you there will fade away,
replaced by dreams that bring you back someday....
So we wait on dreams that bring you back someday.
So we wait...

New Train Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Story Of The New Age Cowboy

I went down to Ashton Place, left Nashville for a while,
took a fishin pole, some cold tall boys, and my old South Georgia smile,
Saw a diner on the way in, stopped in for a bite to eat,
You'll never guess who sat down next to me.

He wasn't in a shade of black, no hat upon his head,
the only way I knew it was Johnny was that smile that he was wearin',
He said, "Son this ain't no diner, its a different way of life.
But if you play your song, you can come inside."

Cause music will keep changing, as long as grass will grow,
but if you keep your ears to the track, you'll hear that whistle blow,
tell those no soul pretty boys to put their guitars down,
There's a new train rollin' into town.

Oh my cousin won't you look around this room,
Willie's at the jukebox, and Waylon's making brew,
Robert Keen and SonVolt bringing in the newer ears,
Yes, young outlaws are always welcome here.

Cause music will keep changing, as long as grass will grow,
but if you keep your ears to the track, you'll hear that whistle blow,
tell those no soul pretty boys to put their guitars down,
There's a new train rollin' into town.

So if your feeling haggfard, like your on desolation road,
and your panic strickin brothers are starting to get old,
Just take the lead out of your shoes, sit right down and sing the blues,
and thank the Lord that trains a comin' soon.

Cause music will keep changing, as long as grass will grow,
but if you keep your ears to the track, you'll hear that whistle blow,
tell those no soul pretty boys to put their guitars down,
There's a new train rollin' into town.

Postcard Home Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Story Of The New Age Cowboy

I needed time today, and I needed space,
and I found it all on these barren waves.
I could have called you to say I was gone,
but I never felt like I needed to.

I needed peace today, and I needed space,
and I felt my time slip into the glaze,
I reached behind me to grasp where I've gone,
and I found that you were there all along.

I don't leave cause I don't need you, I leave because I do,
and everyday that I'm away keeps me coming back to you.
I'm not asking you to sympathize, just know that I wander....
Yes, I roam sometimes.

I needed faith today to run by my side,
to stay through the wake when two lives collide,
and two yellowed sentiments await my return,
One tear stained postcard and love I don't deserve.

I don't leave cause I don't need you, I leave because I do,
and everyday that I'm away keeps me coming back to you.
I'm not asking you to sympathize, just know that I wander....
Yes, I roam sometimes.

I needed you today, I called out your name,
but you were not there you were far away.
You were not there, you were far away.
Someday you won't be so far away.

Little Susie Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Story Of The New Age Cowboy

Little Susie's got herself in a mess, three guys in a room and she's sitting butt naked,
got cocaine lines running up her nose, cowboy hat all under her clothes,
She was lost when she came to this town, well she might be high but she sure ain't found,
So she takes a risk, lives her life on a roll, country music's gonna save her soul.

Little Susie had a chance one day, she met her a man from MCA,
A kiss, a dance, then it went a little far, til he went and showed her where the record deals are,
Now Susie can't sing and Susie can't dance, but you can't forget Susie if you give her a chance,
Everything will be allright once she gets her video, country music gonna save her soul....

Line, Little Susie, and a bowl, Little Susie, oh Little Susie you gotta know.....
That I hope you get your picture on a TV show, and I hope you hear your voice on the radio,
cause if you don't, they won't be calling you back no more.

Little Susie's got a forward but don't know what it means,
so she's living like the Queen of New Orleans,
Released the record in December but it didn't do jack,
now record label wants their money back.
Well Susie sued them and they sued her, and Judge said, "Susie you should hear these words...
If ever making music was your ultimate goal, they never could have touched your soul.

Line, Little Susie, and a bowl, Little Susie, oh Little Susie you gotta know.....
That I hope you get your picture on a TV show, and I hope you hear your voice on the radio,
cause if you don't, they won't be giving you back your soul.

Line, Little Susie, and a bowl, Little Susie, oh Little Susie you gotta know.....
That I hope you get your picture on a TV show, and I hope you hear your voice on the radio,
cause if you don't, they won't be calling you back no more.

Cause if you don't, they won't be giving you back your soul.

Plain Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Story Of The New Age Cowboy

I saw a woman get run down, put in the ground, all for the sake of a photograph,
and I knew that I'd never trust the news again, cause they lied when they said they were her friends.
Cause most people stay true to their own plan and understand, that we're all cut from the same grain,
But some of us want to live our lives through other hands, and that I'll never understand.

Cause some are lame, and some deserve the fame, but like us, most are just plain, and plain is alright with me, plain is alright with me.

Sometimes you get caught in the rough spots, and you think about the life you live,
is quite different than the hero schemes and turbo dreams,
that used to fuel you when you when you were a kid.
But the pantry ain't bare, so don't despair or get scared,
be proud that you did what you could,
cause a hero just does what a human should, it just happens that the timing is good.

Cause some are lame, and some deserve the fame, but most are pretty much plain, and plain is alright with me, plain is alright with me.

I met a girl on an interesting part of the world, she let me rest, and helped me catch my breath,
She said that she'd been burned at a young age, but you never would have guessed,
Cause she shined like a bright star swimming through the mist in the wake of an early morn,
and I thought, "Well, here's a real hero,and it makes you glad that people like that are born.

I said, "I'm not lame, I'm just too tired to play the game, I guess I'm just a little plain.
And she said, "Well, you know I kind of feel the same, and, yes, you are a little plain...
But plain is alright with me.
Plain is alright with me.

So if you hit .400 or win a Grammy, congrats on a job well done,
and if you get invited to a dinner at the White House, I hope you have a lot of fun.
But before you take that plain road back to your plain house to sleep in your plain old bed,
Be sure to smile for Mr. Photograph, just don't let it go to your head.

Cause sometimes fame brings little more than pain, sometimes its best to just be plain,
and if you play the game, you might have to pay, by doing what the other people say,
Cause some are lame, and some deserve the fame, but like us, most are just plain, and plain is alright with me, plain is alright with me.

Under FM Waves Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Story Of The New Age Cowboy

When you're in a hole its a hard time getting out,
and there's a few bad men full of bread and grins, who don't want you on their cloud,
And if you're asking for a hand, well they'll give you one, that will push you back in place,
and its that same hand that pays the man that's running FM waves.

When you're outside, they like you lookin' in,
and they'll drink champagne to that windowpane where they've found a thousand peeping men,
And even if you don't want to sell your tune, they might take it from you anyway,
And you'll feel wronged when you hear your song being shattered over FM waves.

My heroes are not cowboys, they're the ones who sing about them,
Not caring if they're paid or have a place to lay their head,
cause dough will always come and go, but a good song will never grey,
Well, you'd never know from radio, but there's gold under FM waves.

So Mr. Big Wig, no I wouldn't want to take your place,
Cause I don't want to find your Frecnh wine when I'm looking for saving grace,
You can always close your ears, cause one day my voice will fade away,
but there will always be a bunch like me, playing music under FM waves.

My heroes are not cowboys, they're the ones who sing about them,
Not caring if they're paid or have a place to lay their head,
cause dough will always come and go, but a good song never greys,
Well, you'd never know from radio, but there's gold under FM waves.

Dougherty County Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Story Of The New Age Cowboy

He said, "There's so much there before you, there's no need for looking back",
I said, "If you grew up where I did, you might not say a thing like that."
Cause your money fades and crumples and turns to lines upon your face,
But I learned a lesson long ago, old friends can't be replaced.

So we all meet in Dougherty County, once or twice a year,
We laugh and lie and keep the night awake,
Our hair is a little longer, and our words a little stronger,
But our hearts are something the years have never changed.

And I remember times like these, they are the times of my life,
And I fall back on times like these, when life gets a little rough,
Cause they never go too far.

He said, "Well, why don't you go back then."
I said, " Man, I wish I could. But I made a promise long ago, and I'm bound to make it good.
And I look forward to tomorrow I'm just proud of where I've been,
Can't help but hear their voices ringing through the summer wind.

They call me back to Dougherty County on Independence Day,
We laugh and sigh and keep the night awake,
I guess the reasons that I left hear are the reasons I come back,
Sometimes you've got to leave to find out what you have.

And I remember times like these, they are the times of my life,
And I fall back on times like these, when life gets a little rough,
Cause they never go too far.

And these changes, are stealing my ways, they give me today then its gone,
And these angels keep me awake, I feel lucky to know them at all.

I reach back into my wallet and pull a postcard from its place,
The sides are torn and tattered, and the words are half-erased,
I guess I've memorized those few lines, that my Papa wrote,
He said if things aren't working out, Son, you know you're always welcome home.

Willie Nelson Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Story Of The New Age Cowboy

Some are born dreamers, some are born lovers, some live their lives by the mile,
In passing we found there was sparse middle ground, but we were on it, just for awhile.
And I can't forget you, no your memory just lives in my head,
Can't help but remember all those fine kind things that you did,
Wherever you go you should know that I carry you.

So don't let them tell you that you'll never make it,
and don't let them run you right out of this town,
If you ever feel lost go and find Willie Nelson,
and the answers you're seeking will be found in the next go around.

I never thought about winning or losing, or how hard a fight it might be,
But sometimes two hearts seem to travel apart. That's no fault to you or to me.
But I still remember walking downtown in the pouring rain,
not knowing quite where we were going, just happy to be back together again,
Yes, I want you to know, wherever you go, I carry you.

So don't let them tell you that you'll never make it,
and don't let them run you right out of this town,
If you ever feel lost go and find Willie Nelson,
and the answers you're seeking will be found in the next go around.

Don't Turn Away Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Story Of The New Age Cowboy

Well, it was near dark-30 in the soccer field, we were a hundred strong and kids were coming still,
Up the drive of the Y Sportspark, to park beneath the trees.
I hadn't seen that many kids in one place since the Winger Concert or the dirt track race,
And I thought this was definitely the coolest thing that I'd ever seen in Albany.
We had Kodiak and we spit in the dirt, and watched the Senior girls in their skirts,
And prayed for the day when we had girls that looked good and drank beer.
Our lives were filled with nervous excitement as we waited for that epic fight,
Of Clint Cecil and Clay Taylor, and the history they'd make.

So don't turn away, you don't have to run; every day has a rising sun,
And one day yours is gonna come and take your blues away.
So don't turn away.

Cause when you're in ninth grade it's a big deal, to stand shoulder to shoulder on a soccer field,
With 18 year olds who are too preoccupied to punch you in the gut.
Yeah these people came for just one thing, to see Clay and Clint in this human ring,
Cause both guys were tough as nails, and roughest of the rough.
Well, Clay we didn't know so good cause he grew up outside our neighborhood,
But I guess I first heard of him in Merry Acres Middle School.
Some are just fighters, and Clay always was,
But he never used a knife or a gun,
He preferred to win or get beat on the strength of his will.
Consequently, Clint was notoriously known, for being bit by a rattlesnake in a berry grove,
He was only ten then, and he swelled up like a weather balloon.
But it couldn't kill him, it only hardened 'em a bit,
And after that he never took no stuff, and that' prob'ly why he and Clay met that afternoon.

So don't turn away, you don't have to run; every day has a rising sun,
And one day yours is gonna come and take your blues away.
So don't turn away.

Well, Clint and Clay should have never a fought, it was a lie that was started by my friends dad's daughter,
Which would usually be called a sister but she was more than that.
Cause his dad had an affair with my friend's mom's mother,
And had two kids, and maybe others, One was my friends uncle, and the other was his aunt.
So his quasi-aunt-step-sister-person had done a bad thing and worsened it,
By hitting Clay's parked car and starting a lie.
She was confused already with the way she was, and she didn't want to piss off the boy she loved,
Cause she had a crush on Clay since she was nine.
Which was something we didn't quite understand, cause girls dug Clay but he was an ugly man,
Much like us, so he gave us hope, or at least a fighting chance.
We just knew he wasn't someone to mess with, so it was no surprise when he got the message,
That he skipped his class and ran out in a rage.
He yelled, "Whichever dead man hit my car, you know what you did and you know who you are,
And if you was worth a damn, you'd fess up to what you did."
From the group of kids rose a shaking hand, it was the one of my friend's sister-aunt,
And she said, "Clay, I saw it all and it was Clint!"
Well, Clint yelled out, "You lyin' inbred!" and Clay cried, "You little punk, you're dead!
You meet me at the Y soccer fields a quarter after dark."
Clint said, "I didn't hit that piece of crap, but nobody talks to me like that,
And you're gonna wish you never called me out to that park."

o don't turn away, you don't have to run; every day has a rising sun,
And one day yours is gonna come and take your blues away.
So don't turn away, keep your toes on the line,
Keep your head up kid, everything will be fine.
Those bitter grapes are gonna turn to wine,
And wash your blues away. So don't turn away.

Well, dusk bit into the far horizon, it's teethmarks found a dust trail rising,
Across the clay alley towards the vending machines.
At first nobody really noticed, 'till the dustcloud hit the soccer goals,
Then some kid yelled, "Hey, I think that's Clay Taylor's Jeep!"
He was gunning it, with the hammer down,
And when he got near us he spun it around and stuck the brakes until the gravel bled.
And we all stared at disbelief at the strangest sight I'd ever seen,
A butt naked Clay Taylor, with pantyhose on his head.
Now, you've got to know what this meant to us, this was pre-Braveheart and William Wallace,
Clay was revolutionizing the art of war in 1991.
It was weird as hell, downright frightening, as he called for the man he was supposed to fight,
But who could know the horrorshow had only just begun.

So don't turn away, you don't have to run; every day has a rising sun,
And one day yours is gonna come and take your blues away.
So don't turn away.

We were shocked, speechless, the field was silent,
'till a growl pierced the air like a mountain lion's,
and got closer and closer shaking needles from the trees.
Kids were looking around, all confused, cause the sound grew near but there was still no view,
'Till the southside of the crowd let out in screams.
And the sea of people all around, parted to reveal a clown, running full speed with a chainsaw in his hands,
I'd never seen a clown in full sprint, then I realized "Hey, that's really Clint. And I do believe he aims to kill a man."
Now there is one thing scarier than a mad clown, that's a midget on crank and there ain't many around,
To be honest, I've never seen one in the real.
So the whole crowd got spooked and ran, and left a solitary man,
Standing in the middle of a trampled soccer field.

Well it really doesn't matter who won or lost, I can only say that Clint paid the cost,
Of an ill-fated rumor and a heart of pride.
It wasn't his fault how things turned out, he tried to have something that he was born without,
The kind of toughness a few like Clay keep trapped inside.
The kind that looks someone square in the eye, as he's rushin' at you in a clown disguise,
Brandishing a Yamaha chainsaw from his Daddy's toolshed.
And not flinchin' a bit, not bitin' yer lip,
Not quiverin' shiverin', or faking a limp.
Just spittin' out whiskey right there in the mud, and sayin' "Bring it on, son."
Well, that's the stuff you only see in Albany,
Clay might have been crazy but he was braver than any other SOB I've seen in all my years.
So when the taxman calls, or rent gets late,
Or we've played a show, and we didn't get paid,
I think, "Well it ain't no chainsaw bearing clown, so what do I got to fear."

So don't turn away, you don't have to run; every day brings a rising sun,
And one day yours is gonna come and take your blues away.
So don't turn away, keep your toes on the line,
Keep your head up kid, everything will be fine,
Those bitter grapes are gonna turn to wine,
And take your blues away.

Long Fall Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Trailer Trash

The waves are settling down, and the sun has sunk into the sand
And the only calm this city gives is living in these ocean sounds
Well, it's not as bad as it could be, it's just not as good as I thought it would be
You'll find out what you miss most when you're out alone on the West Coast
In a longfall, yes, it's gonna be a longfall

I'm not sure why I'm still here, when I left my life seemed so clear
Now my dreams are heavy things that are muddied by reality
Cause I can't find good pay, and there's no game days on Saturdays
Yes, the only tailgates I see down are loading smack and crack cocaine
For a long haul, up the West Coast in this longfall

My girl loved the price of fame, I lost her when she changed her name
Her face used to feel so soft, 'til her agent's doctor pulled it off
She got a new nose and cheekbones, and a bit part on a TV show
But a home can turn to a frozen place, when the one you love's got a stranger's face
It's a longfall, out in LA, It's a longfall. Still no rain, and I don't feel the same

Just when I thought I'd head on back, I saw a black haired girl on the concrete path
She flung her hair back with her hands, between the setting sun and a coffee stand
And in the fading light I could barely see, when she fired up a Winston and gave it to me
She said, "You look like someone I know";
I said, "I do, well, thanks for the care, cause it shows."

In this longfall, there's fine folks out on the West Coast
It's just a longfall, where there's no cold, and no one gets old
In this longfall, there's no rain, but I know Jane will change
In this longfall, yes, I know things have got to change

Redneck Girl Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Trailer Trash

You buy my chew for me, you make sure it's fresh,
You take a plug while you are waiting in line,
You buy the beer, you know I like it Beast Light,
And if they don't have it you'll fight.
Redneck Girl.

You paid the bail to get me out of jail,
Even though you were the reason I was there,
Don't lie and tell me you didn't show 5-0 my rocks,
My brother saw it all on COPS.

Redneck girl, Nobody understands,
she just loves her man, so let me give it to you
Redneck Girl.

After the summer, Lord, I tried to get away,
But once you cross that line you know you've got to stay,
Her Daddy went and bought us a conversion van,
Well, hot damn...

She's my Redneck Girl.

Sitting On Top Of The World Lyrics

Artist : LOST TRAILERS, THE
Album : Trailer Trash

Looking out on these back streets that you brought me,
All I see has been bought, kept for safety,
Trade the rift of the change for the landing,
Save the light for the few that's left standing.

[Chorus:]
You tried to tell me
these are the good times,
Guess we'll find out
Down the line, down the line

Walking out used to be so easy
Close the door while the light was still fading
But those times seem to fade into memories
And bring us here while those streets are left sleeping

[Chorus]

It's what we left behind.
It's what we found inside
So what is on your mind
Now that we're wasted, and sitting on top of the world
Sitting on top of the world
Sitting on top of the world
Sitting on top of the world
Sitting on top of the world
