Lyrics

Light Of My Mind

Verse 1: 

I've been bad

I've been down

I've been around so many times that I can't count

I get mad if I don't hear the sound

of the one true thing that spins me around

Chorus:

You can tell me if I've gone to far 

or if I'm out of control

you could see me in the light of my mind

and the dark in my soul

ya maybe you'd know

ya maybe you'd know

ya maybe you'd know

ya maybe you know

Verse 2:

I fly solo 

I drink alone

I've been around so many times God only knows

I get angry when I'm not in my zone

and I'm always trying to find my way home

Chorus:

You can tell me if I've gone to far 

or if I'm out of control

you could see me in the light of my mind

and the dark in my soul

ya maybe you'd know

ya maybe you'd know

ya maybe you'd know

ya maybe you know

Verse 3: 

I leave town

on a ride on a whiskey train

I keep movin'

I keep groovin'

to that beat in my brain

Chorus: 

You can tell me if I've gone to far 

or if I'm out of control

you could see me in the light of my mind

and the dark in my soul

maybe you'd know

maybe you don't

maybe you'd know

but baby you don't

Rock 'n' Roll

Verse 1:

 

I heard 

he's back

that devil dressed in black

must have been a long trip up from Hell 

kneel down

and pray

don't let him temp your way

no tellin' how far down you fall

Chorus:

People actin' crazy

strayin' from the truth

they're screamin loud

they're gettin' 'round

they're poisoning the youth

the more it played the more it spread

no cure to keep control

it must have been the Devil's work

That damned ol' rock 'n' roll

Verse 2:

Well I must be a sinner

all the songs I've sang

I've listened to that Devil's word 

from such an early age

bangin' drums

loud guitars 

make me who I am

and all those rockin' honkey tonks

I guess we'll all be damned 

Chorus:

Like a match struck on a barren land 

or a wild fire in your soul

it all adds up to the Devil's word

that damned ol' rock 'n' roll

Verse 3:

Some made may not like it

they tried to shut it down

like that holy word of God 

it spread and passed around

infiltrated peoples' minds 

they called them all insane

they bought and came 

they purchased more 

like a needle needs a vein

Chorus:

People actin' crazy

strayin' from the truth

they're screamin' loud

they're gettin' 'round

they're poisoning the youth

the drug runs through your body

spreads throughout your soul

it must have been the Devil's work

that damned ol' rock 'n' roll

She's Goin' Out

She's been workin' all week

tryin' to make ends meet

she's got a pocket full of cash

and some friends to see

she's been calling all the numbers 

listed in her phone

she's gonna find a squad

in new clothes she bought

she's lookin' hot 

and she's pickin' a spot

she sure as Hell ain't goin' out alone

Chorus:

She said we party tonight

'cause Hell it's been to long

time's flyin' by and my weekend's almost gone

we'll burn both ends if the feelin's right or wrong

you can hold the coke and pour my whiskey strong

Verse 2:

Like a bomb with a fuse 

and she's ready to light

she's gonna burn the roof

and set them all in a line

she's gonna spark the wick 

and set the floor on fire tonight

you best stay out of her way

while she tears it up

she's swingin' in circles

and she's makin' you jump

she's gonna keep on dancin'

her friends keep fillin' her cup

Chorus:

She said we party tonight

'cause Hell it's been to long

time's flyin' by and my weekend's almost gone

we'll burn both ends if the feelin's right or wrong

you can hold the coke and pour my whiskey strong

Whiskey Breath

Verse 1:

 

Black straightened hair

black party dress

Dolce and Gabbana go along with her french tips

black lipstick 

smokin' on a cigarette 

she's on the guest list 

the party she ain't gonna miss

she's only top shelf

nothing but the best

she whispers in your ear 

another round with her whiskey breath

Verse 2:

Black fedora hat

high heals 

holy jeans

rock 'n' roll tank top

she fits in with the country scene

been there done that

not chasing anything 

daddy'd have a heart attack 

if he knew all she'd seen

runnin' all night with a rowdy crowd

shootin' warm whiskey

make your grand daddy proud

Chorus:

One shot

two shot

she temps you with her words 

her momma raised her right 

the sweetest voice you've ever heard

three shot

four shot 

you're hangin' by a thread

she whispers in your ear

another round with her whiskey breath

Verse 3:

Sushi 

white wine

high class and fine dine

nothin' but the best man

even in the day time

when she's not makin' money

then she's livin' 

your dime

better break it out

and start cuttin' up another line

like I said before

a no limit bet

she whispers in your ear

another round with her whiskey breath

Chorus:

One shot

two shot

she temps you with her words 

her momma raised her right 

the sweetest voice you've ever heard

three shot

four shot 

you're hangin' by a thread

she whispers in your ear

another round with her whiskey breath

Wood and Whiskey

Verse 1:

 

When I was just a young boy

on grand daddy's knee

he'd tell me about the good and bad

and all the heartache he had seen

he'd always say

try and stay away 

from tattoos and whiskey

Verse 2:

My daddy showed me rock 'n' roll 

and all that music in between

I grabbed that six string wood guitar 

and it's always been strapped to me

right or wrong 

I'd sing a song

about wood and whiskey

Chorus:

You can tell me 'bout the Lord above

and all I should believe

I got my heart 

I got my soul 

they're tattooed on my sleeve 

when I grew up 

and I got old

I guess I always knew

I'd be proof 

wood and whiskey

Verse 3: 

My momma told me many times

it's a hard life to live

I did my best to listen close 

but I gave all I could give

now I know

the way it goes 

wood and whiskey

Chorus:

You can tell me 'bout the Lord above

and all I should believe

I got my heart 

I got my soul 

they're tattooed on my sleeve 

when I grew up 

and I got old

I guess I always knew

I'd be true 

wood and whiskey

Walked Away

Verse 1:

I heard you say

you were done

and you walked away

you walked away

that was yesterday

I watched as you walked away

you walked away

in the mornin'

without a warnin'

you walked away

Verse 2:

I gave you all 

I gave you all I had

you walked away

you walked away

it's not all bad

it's not all sad

but you walked away

you walked away 

Chorus:

In the mornin' 

without a warnin'

you grabbed your bags 

and left today

I woke now I can see

why you left me 

I walked away

I walked away

Verse 3:

Now I'm alone

I'm alone

because you walked away

you walked away

Now I've flown

far from home

because you walked away

you walked away

Chorus:

In the mornin' 

without a warnin'

you grabbed your bags 

and left today

I woke now I can see

why you left me 

I walked away

I walked away

Wolf Mother

Verse 1:

 

Wolf mother tell me somethin' good

wold mother tell me 'bout that ol' oak wood

tell me how the Sun shines through the trees

and how it's livin' life with the birds and bees

wolf mother

tell me somethin' good

wolf mother tell me 'bout the way you live

wolf mother tell me all the ways you give

how you stay warm in the knee deep snow

and how you make it through the Winter's cold

wolf mother

tell me 'bout the way you live

Verse 2:

Wise owl tell me all your tales

wise owl I know you know the back wood trails

all the way down to the river bank

and to that fishin' hole 

beside the hidden lake

wise owl tell me all your tales

wise owl tell me somethin' good 

wise owl how it's livin' in that ol' oak wood

can you tell me how see when it gets so dark

or how you see in the dark so very far

wise owl

tell me somethin' good

Last Time

Chorus:

 

Last time 

was the last time

I'd slam that bottle down

I'd cowboy up 

I'd fill my cup 

and I'd pass that smoke around

this time

will be the last time

where's a witness anyhow

y'all know me 

and it's plain to see

who am I foolin' now

Verse 1:

Well I work hard five days a week

sometimes three or four

and it's hard to hold back the devil in me

when he's knockin' at my front door

well I try and try to keep him hidden inside

I burry him deep within

but when he wants out 

I just hold my breath 

and I hope I get home again 

Chorus:

 

Last time 

was the last time

I'd slam that bottle down

I'd cowboy up 

I'd fill my cup 

and I'd pass that smoke around

this time

will be the last time

where's a witness anyhow

y'all know me 

and it's plain to see

who am I foolin' now

Verse 2:

When I get paid it's like an ace of spades

I only need a couple more

I'm workin' on a straight

but I'm red in the face 

and this ain't no time to fold

I go all in 

and I bet big 

my tells I hope I never show

it's all in my head 

I couldn't cover the spread

my chips were gone long ago

Chorus:

 

Last time 

was the last time

I'd slam that bottle down

I'd cowboy up 

I'd fill my cup 

and I'd pass that smoke around

this time

will be the last time

where's a witness anyhow

y'all know me 

and it's plain to see

who am I foolin' now

Grandma's 45s

Verse 1:

 

Born and raised in Colorado

I grew up livin' on Tulsa Time

playin' country music

on Grandma's 45s

Willy's songs about belt buckles

and how a cowboy lives and dies

bar room fights and lonely nights

the only things keepin' me alive

Chorus:

Lately all the stars above

are showin' me things I hate and love

whisper in my ear a path to take

if I'm strong 

if I'm tough

if it's wrong 

or if it's rough

the road I travel on is the one I make 

it's like I'm livin' country music

inside Grandma's 45s

Verse 2:

I go out walkin' after midnight

just like Patsy sang

doublin' down on aces high

I go out drinkin' in the rain

I'll sing the blues 

I'll sing 'em good

like Janice said that Bobby would

then I'll grab my stuff and walk away

all the things here on my mind 

the way it must have been that time

when Johnny wrote down how he'd walk the line

Chorus:

Lately all the stars above

are showin' me things I hate and love

whisper in my ear a path to take

if I'm strong 

if I'm tough

if it's wrong 

or if it's rough

the road I travel on is the one I make 

it's like I'm livin' country music

inside Grandma's 45s
