“Hard Times”  
 

I’ve traveled every highway
Been down every road
Tried doing things my way
But all I got was old
Been out here a playin’
Since I turned sixteen
Got nothing to show no,
But these tired ol’ blue jeans
But as sure as death and taxes
I’ll tell you what I’ve learned
There ain’t no hard times comin’
There ain’t no hard times comin’
There ain’t no hard times comin’
Lord They’re already here! They’re already here!
I’ve seen hungry in the city,
Poor folk workin’ in the fields
Just tryin’ to make a livin’
While politicians lie and steal
We used to have it good here,
Work hard and die free
Ain’t no jobs to find now
Since they moved them over seas
But as sure as death and taxes
I’ll tell you what I’ve learned
There ain’t no hard times comin’
There ain’t no hard times comin’
There ain’t no hard times comin’
Lord They’re already here! They’re already here!
I’ve seen young men leavin’ home
To fight in a foreign land
While here at our borders
The drugs keep pouring in
I’ve seen children in the streets
P
layin’ with knives and guns
Doing the occasional drive by,
killin’ each other just for fun
But as sure as death and taxes
I’ll tell you what I’ve learned
There ain’t no hard times comin’
There ain’t no hard times comin’
There ain’t no hard times comin’
Lord They’re already here! They’re already here!
We’ve lost our way and the phrase, “In God We Trust”
Then we sit and pray all day,
Somebody comes to save us
I’ve traveled every highway
Been down every road
Searching for an answer
But all I hear is I don’t know
But as sure as death and taxes
I’ll tell you what I’ve learned
There ain’t no hard times comin’
There ain’t no hard times comin’
There ain’t no hard times comin’
Lord They’re already here! They’re already here!


“These Blues”
 
Ain’t no bottle or pills gonna cure these blues I feel,
Tired of feellin’ down and lonely,

Broken hearted cause it ain’t me
I’m mad, mad I’ve got these blues
Ain’t no bottle or pills gonna cure these blues I feel

Tired of hearin’ lies and pity
All her promises that never came to be

I’m mad Lord she got me bad mad I’ve got these blues
Ain’t no bottle or pills gonna cure these blues I have
Tired of bein’ cold and hungry
Broke an homeless makes me so angry
I’m mad Lord she got me bad mad I’ve got these blues
Ain’t no bottle or pills gonna cure these blues I feel

Tired of feellin’ down and lonely
Broken hearted cause it ain’t me
I’m mad mad I’ve got these blues
Ain’t no bottle or pills gonna cure these blues I have


“Dead End Road”  
          
I like my bourbon neat when it touches my lips
Like my women big boned and a whole lot of hip
It’s not too complicated I like to take things nice and slow
One day at a time Down this dead end road
Don’t need a fast car to get from A to B
Ain't in a hurry lord to get what’s coming to me
It’s not too complicated hope it gets here nice and slow
One day at a time Lord Down this dead end road
Well I wake up every mornin’ and the voices in my head S
creaming and a yellin’ boy don't get up out of this bed
But I've got to find a way to set my soul free
So I’ll keep on traveling down this dead end road Till he comes for me
I’d rather be judged by twelve than to be carried by six
So I choose my words carefully and carry one big stick
It’s not too complicated I like to take things nice slow
One day at a time
One day at a time lord
One day at a time
Down this dead end road


“Ugly Teacher Blues”
 
I'm up in the morning and it's not even day
Pack up my belongings and I'm on my way
Second bell rings for the first period class
I go into the corner so I won't be harassed
I wish that I could be hot for teacher too
Instead of singing these ugly teacher blues
Ugly teacher blues
She’s big and smelly with a red hairy mole C
oke bottle glasses and eyes black as coal
Short little legs waddles when she walks
Like fingernails on a chalk board when she talks
I wish that I could be hot for teacher too
Instead of singing these ugly teacher blues
Ugly teacher blues
Yeah summers almost over

Only a few good days left
And I'm stuck here in the corner
With the ugliest teacher that I ever met
Well it's the same old crap just a different day
I keep telling myself it's gonna’ be okay
But I can’t study I can’t concentrate
She gave me detention for one minute late
I wish that I could be hot for teacher too
Instead of singing these ugly teacher blues
Ugly teacher blues
I stare at the clock but the hands don't move
Somebody please tell me what's a poor boy to do
With these ugly teacher blues


T-Town
    
I’m rolling down the highway got my guitar by my side
Headed down to T-town yeah play some blues tonight
I can feel it, I can feel it in my bones lord lord
You might not wait up baby don’t know when this boy is coming home

Well there’s a five-dollar cover and the ladies get in free
Draft by the pitcher lord and a shot of black for me
I can feel it, I can feel it in my bones lord lord
You know I love my whiskey love to play the blues all night long

When T-Town gets to rocking and the ladies hit the floor
You know the way they shack that thing brings me back for more
I can feel it, I can feel it in my bones lord lord
You know I love the ladies love to play them blues all night long 

I’m rolling down the highway got my guitar by my side
Headed down to T-town yeah play some blues tonight
I can feel it, I can feel it in my bones lord lord
You might not wait up baby don’t know when this boy is coming home

You might not wait up baby don’t know when this boy is coming home
 

Misery

Just get-tin by no feelings or emotions
Night after day just going through the motions
Ain’t no hurry going home cause no-body’s there
No one to love you no one to care
There was a time when you had some one
But love like time has come and gone

Chorus:

Bad love Lies and misery
Numbs the body and takes control
Bad love Lies and misery
Stills the heart and rapes the soul
Won’t let you go
Mis---er-------y Won’t let you go

Alone and forgotten you never go any where
Consumed by memories of a love no longer there
Stare at the front door and a phone that never rings
Try not to think about what tomorrow might bring
When you get the courage you’ll walk down the hall
Past another lifetime that hangs on the wall

Chorus:

Bad love Lies and misery
Numbs the body and takes control
Bad love Lies and misery
Stills the heart and rapes the soul
Won’t let you go
Mis---er-------y Won’t let you go

Sleep don’t come easy now that no-body’s there
No one to hold you no one to care
There was a time when you had some one
But love like time has come and gone

Chorus:

Bad love Lies and misery
Numbs the body and takes control
Bad love Lies and misery
Stills the heart and rapes the soul
Won’t let you go
Mis---er-------y Won’t let you go 


Sometimes

Got On My Bike Took A Ride Through The Pouring Rain
She Said It’s High Time I Heard What She Had To Say
She Said Some Things I Spoke My Mind
Now The Silence Cuts Me
Like A Switchblade Knife

Chorus:

I Said Sometimes Nobody’s Right
Sometimes Nobody’s Wrong
I Said Sometimes Things Don’t Work Out
And It’s Time To Move On
I Said Sometimes Nobody’s Right
Sometimes Nobody’s Wrong
You Can Only Hope
The Pain Don’t Last Too Long

I Got On My Bike
Headed South Down 75
Said Baby Maybe Its High Time
You Kiss My Ass Good Bye
She Could Have Let It Go
I Could Of Bit My Tongue
Just Two Stubborn Fools
Who Let It All Come Undone

Chorus:

Bridge:

Look here baby I’m not going to stand out here in the pouring rain and listen to you bitch about the same thing over and over again, I am who I am and I’m not going to change for you or nobody!

Chorus:


Someone Like Me

Seems like only yesterday you crashed into my life
Scared the hell out of me like a roller coaster ride
Your life it was a total mess I mean borderline insane
So many ups and downs sunshine and rain
We talked we laughed we cried we shared some company
You know I could've died when you bared your soul to me
I saw your scars were deep from trying to escape
And as our friendship grew I prayed its not to late

Chorus:
You just need someone to love you
Why can't that someone be me?
Can’t you see I love you?
tell me can you love someone like me
Just got to know can you love someone like me

I listened to your mistakes the choices you regret
Pain you shouldn't couldn't take the memories too forget
I know it’s complicated another man holds the key
You’ve been caged for so long now won’t you let me set you free
In your eyes I’m just a friend and I know you could do better
But when I look into your eyes I see the way we fit together
Together we could change the world, maybe, maybe not.
As long as I’d have you to hold that’s more than enough
 
Chorus:
You just need someone to love you
Why can't that someone be me?
Can’t you see that I love you?
tell me can you love someone like me
Just got to know can you love someone like me

When She Whispers Your Name

Her taste will seduce you and make you a slave
I've seen her send bigger men than you to the grave
You'll need lots of money just like you've been told
Cause man she's more expensive than diamonds or gold
Hot sweats cold chills and with drawl pains
Gotta have her love flowing through your vein’s
Can't live with her can't live without
One day at a time your friends all cry out, I say 

Chorus:
What about the night
What about the night
Who's gonna get you through the night
When she whispers your name whispers your name

Her kiss will reduce you to dust and bones
You want to scream so paranoid and alone
Can't eat or sleep your loosing control
She waits in the shadows to steel your soul
Hot sweats cold chills and with drawl pains
Gotta have her love flowing through your veins
Can't live with her can't live without
One day at a time your friends cry out, I say
 
Chorus:
What about the night
What about the night
Who's gonna get you through the night
When she whispers your name whispers your name 


Risk It All

Such a fine line between friends and lovers
Sometimes the difference is hard to tell
With one kiss we would discover
Love can be heaven love can be hell
From an innocent kiss a spark ignited
An internal flame won’t let us go no, no, no, no,
Now each breath fuels the fire
A burning affair that’s out of control

CHORUS:

Just one more kiss one more night
Can’t stop this feeling inside
Just one more kiss one more night
Can’t stop this burning desire
Hearts on fire gonna risk it all

Bound by passion and desire
Throwing caution to the wind
Crossing the line from friends to lovers
Time and time and time again
We sneak away into the night
Sharing a secret only two can know no, no, no
Now each breath fuels the fire
A burning affair that’s out of control

CHORUS:

Just one more kiss one more night
Can’t stop this feeling inside
Just one more kiss one more night
Can’t stop this burning desire
Hearts on fire gonna risk it all 


Sex Drugs Ur Mom & Me

Up here in this cold dark room just staring at the ceiling
Been laying here for so damn long my heart has lost all feeling
You left me for no reason said they’re be no compromise
I didn’t want to believe it no until I looked into your eyes
I’d be a dead dead man If looks could kill

Now we’ve been together baby such a long long time
I make one little mistake you say it’s the end of the line
You know that I love you baby I wouldn't tell you no lies
I guess that don’t count for much from the look in your eyes
I’d be a dead dead man If looks could kill 

Chorus:

I know it wasn’t right But baby it was just one night
I think we’ll both agree It was an awful sight to see
Sex drugs your mom and me

Home alone token a number kicking back and watching some tube
When she stopped by just to say high took a hit off my dube
A nickel bag and twelve pack later you started looking mighty fine
I was impressed when you tore off that dress said lets have a good time
I’d be a dead dead man If looks could kill

A little strange hard to explain when you walked through that door
How could that be when you’re here with me passed out on the floor
I never knew there were two of you damn baby what a surprise
But I’m Long since sober and I’ll never get over that look in your eyes
I’d be a dead dead man If looks could kill 

Chorus:

I know it wasn’t right But baby it was just one night
I think we’ll both agree It was an awful sight to see
Sex drugs your mom and me 


The Best Place

I was standing the middle of nowhere you were heavy on my mind
No-body in site seems like I'll never get a ride
So I sat down the middle of somewhere to play your favorite song
It just don’t matter where I go now, now that you’re gone

Cause you’re the best place
Honey you’re the best place
Baby you’re the best place
I’ve ever been

So I played for forty minutes it started raining and it was cold
When that driver pulled over I didn’t care where he was gonna go
He said son where you headed I said anywhere will do
It just don’t matter where I go now, now that I don’t have you

Cause you’re the best place
Honey you’re the best place
Baby you’re the best place
I’ve ever been

So here I am the middle of somewhere asking lord what went wrong
It just don’t matter where I go now, now that you’re gone

Cause you’re the best place
Honey you’re the best place
Baby you’re the best place
I’ve ever been
