Gone To Texas

 

Well I’ve gone to Texas baby 

With my guitar by my side 

I gone to Texas baby 

With my guitar by my side 

 

I’m gonna find me a woman 

And lord I’m gonna make her mine

 

Well I’ve gone to Texas baby 

I’m gonna start my life again 

Well I’ve gone to Texas baby 

I’m gonna start my life again

 

I’m gonna get down in the lone star 

And wash away my sin 

 

Just like ? before me

Down to the Gulf of Mexico 

New ? gonna broaden my horizon

Save my soul

 

I’ve gone to Texas baby 

 

My eyes have seen the glory

One step at a time 

My eyes have seen the glory 

One step at a time 

 

I found hope and redemption 

And the skies ? 

 

Well I’ve gone to Texas baby 

With my guitar by my side 

Well I’ve gone to Texas baby 

With my guitar by my side 

 

Well I found me a woman

Lord I made her mine

 

Well I’ve gone to Texas baby x4

 

Rainbow Bridge 

 

Fly through Lake Charles

Hoping I can make it home

Been driving all night in the rain 

After the last show 

 

I got caught on Rainbow Bridge

A semi hit the ditch

???

 

Got the swamp pop playing on the AM radio 

???

 

See that fire in the sky

It should be about 60 miles 

Atlantic and Highway 73

 

Rainbow Bridge x3 

Tonight 

Baby I can see the light 

 

I Never Knew A Hurricane 

 

I never knew a hurricane 

Could be so cruel

It hits you like a freight train 

Leaves you feeling like a fool

 

When the wind stops blowing 

And the rain stops falling in

There’s an eerie silence

With nothing left to make a sound

 

Though losing everything 

Hurts like hell it’s true 

Cause no playing 

Hurts like losing you 

 

I never knew a hurricane 

Could be so cruel 

It hits you like a freight train

Leaves you feeling like a fool 

 

It comes on like a lover’s game 

When you know it’s no good 

I never knew a hurricane 

Could hurt me like you

 

Yeah you’re leaving me 

is a special kind of hurt 

You made me feel like crying 

You made me feel like dirt

 

You created the stone

Inside of my heart

Like the waves crashing down 

Tore me apart

 

I never knew a hurricane 

Could be so cruel

It hits you like a freight train 

Leaves you feeling like a fool

 

It comes on like a lover’s game 

When you know it’s no good 

I never knew a hurricane 

Could hurt me like you

 

When it all blows through 

And things are never the same 

You pick yourself up 

And start over again 

 

I never knew a hurricane 

Could be so cruel

It hits you like a freight train 

Leaves you feeling like a fool

 

It comes on like a lover’s game 

When you know it’s no good 

I never knew a hurricane 

Could hurt me like you

 

Don’t Think Cause You’re Pretty 

 

Don’t think cause you’re a pretty woman

You got every man in town

Don’t think cause you’re a pretty woman

Yeah you got every man in town 

You ain’t doing nothing

But tearing your own reputation down

 

You know the blues is a mighty bad feeling

You had him at the break of day

You know the blues is a mighty bad feeling

You had him at the break of day

And what you want from with rooster no

He won’t huff all day 

Don’t think cause you’re a pretty woman

 

What you looking for huh little babe

Where your baby used to lay?

What you looking for huh little babe

Where your baby used to lay?

What you want little woman

Lord, I still won’t do a thing you say

 

Don’t think cause you’re a pretty woman

Don’t think cause you’re a pretty woman

Don’t think cause you’re a pretty woman

Don’t think cause you’re a pretty woman

 

Death Row 

 

I made mistakes 

All of my life

I stole from you 

And I cheated my wife 

 

But I crossed the line

And now I can’t come back 

And I’m on death row 

Tied to the ?

 

I was not sure 

How life should be 

They said my mind is sick

And ??

 

I killed a man 

And I showed no shame 

And now I’m on death row 

With no one to blame 

No one to blame 

 

I met this man

And spoke to me of love 

He told me that I 

That I might be worthy of 

 

I could confess 

To ease the pain 

Everyone’s pain

Here on death row 

Oh lord I saved my soul 

Who would believe on death row 

Lord I saved my soul 

 

Don’t Break A Leg

 

Nothing but bad luck

Bad luck and trouble with the opposite sex

Nothing but bad luck

Bad luck and trouble with the opposite sex 

I said one more thing

All these women, they’re all a wreck

 

I saw your sister baby 

Yeah she was shaking it all night long

I saw your sister baby

She was shaking it all night long

She had on one of them see through dress

It looked like she had nothing on

 

Don’t break a leg baby

Trying to jump out of my bad

Don’t break a leg baby 

Trying to jump out of my bed

You been acting like a fool 

By something silly I said 

 

Let’s get some dinner baby 

I’m gonna take you out all over town 

Let’s get some dinner girl 

I’m gonna show you off all over town 

Yeah that ain’t what you gonna wear is it

Woo, this ain’t your wig I found

 

I’m sorry babe 

I’m gonna try and be more sensitive 

You know I’m sorry little girl 

I’m gonna promise to be more sensitive 

Yeah so maybe you’ll do something for me

Try to be a little more sensuous

Wait what?

 

Don’t break a leg baby

Trying to jump out of my bad

Don’t break a leg baby 

Trying to jump out of my bed

You been acting like a fool 

By something silly I said

 

Take It Easy

 

Take it easy loving me

Don’t start thinking 

I’m something 

That I’ll never be 

 

Just leave me 

As much as need be

Take it easy 

Easy loving me 

 

A man has a woman 

Who cried himself crazy at night

Oh but some kind of man who she says 

Ain’t treating her right 

 

Expecting someone 

Who’s quick to be taking his toll ???

And if you’re not careful

You’ll wake up all alone

 

Take it easy 

Easy loving me

Don’t stop thinking

I’m something

That I’ll never be

 

Just leave me

Oh as much as need be

So take it easy 

Easy loving me 

 

Now dreaming of planets

Things I guess all of us do 

Sooner or later

We all play the part of the fool 

 

Those in a hurry

To unpack the bag full of dreams 

I quit being victims

Of the lies, loves and the scheme

 

So take it easy

Easy loving me

Don’t start thinking 

That I’ll never be

 

Oh just leave me

Yeah baby as much as need be

Take it easy 

Easy loving me

Take it easy baby 

Take it easy darling loving 

You got to love me baby 

Oh love me baby 

Take it easy 

loving me

 

The Road Never Ends

 

Well the road never ends

Just goes on and on

Well the road never ends 

Just goes on and on

By the time I get home

You know I’m already gone 

 

No rest for the wicked

Lumps in my bed

No turning back

I can sleep when I’m dead

Cause the road never ends 

It just goes on and on

And by the time I get home 

You know I’m already gone

 

All these one-night stands

Bout to do me in

I get down on my knees

If I thought she was a sin

Oh the road never ends

Just goes on and on

 

By the time I get home

You know I’m already gone

 

 

The road makes me crazy

Out here working like a fool

All the whiskey and wild women 

Feel like I’m losing my cool

The road never ends

It just goes on and on

By the time I get home

You know I’m already gone

 

Lord it’s too late now

What else would I do

When I’m home I miss the road 

And on the road I’m missing you

Cause the road never ends

Just goes on and on

By the time I get home

You know I’m already gone

 

The road never ends x5

The road never ends, just goes on and on

 

Well the road never ends

It just goes on and on

 

Subtraction Blues

 

Well my math just don’t add up

She got the number way over my head

Well my math just don’t add up

She took the numbers way over my head

She knows I can’t subtract 

Not that hard just lying in bed ??

 

She gets the best of me

All day I just dream and multiply

She got the best of me

All day long she just smile and I multiply

You know I just can’t hide

No I can’t, I cannot divide

I got the subtraction blues

When she leaves, she takes a little piece of me too

I got the subtraction blues

When that girl leaves, she takes a little piece of me too

Yeah when you add it all up

This here equation 

It was made for two

Two by two baby, that makes four

 

Got the subtraction blues

Got the subtraction blues

 

Hell On Me

 

Been up for three days

Cold sweat on my face

Hiding from the sun

Deep in outer space

 

I think the man is coming

Hiding across the street 

I keep peeking out the window

And I can feel the heat

As far as I can see

I got that hell on me

 

It started with a spark

Blew into a blaze

Trying to fight this curse

But I got lost in a maze

 

Now I’m under the grail

Living like a slave

This ship is my ship

I’m digging my own grave

As far as I can see

I got that hell on me

 

Oh I got that hell on me

I got that hell on me

Oh I got that hell on me

I got that hell on me

As far as I can see

I got that hell on me

 

I tried to close my eyes

Though my mind was racing fast 

Here comes the sun

And the shadows start to cast

 

Just one more hit 

Just one more taste

Here’s the end of the line boy

Got nothing left to chase

As far as I can see

Yeah I got that hell on me

Oh I got that hell on me x4

As far as I can see

I got that hell on me

 

Voices In Dallas 

 

The room it starts a spinning 

Down in lower Greenville 

I got a half of bag of blow

Hand full of pills

 

The room starts spinning baby 

And I don’t think I’m gonna make it home

I’m hearing voices in Dallas

They’re telling me I’m all alone

 

Highway 30 baby

In the middle of the night

Oh I’m still triple 

Shining through the moonlight

 

I’m seeing triple baby

And I don’t think I’m gonna make it home

I’m hearing voices in Dallas

They’re telling me I’m all alone

 

I’m all alone

Oh but I’m still calling out your name

I’m all alone

I don’t wanna play this game

 

I sit straight up 

In a dark and lonely room 

And I’m talking to a woman

Who is nowhere to be found

I’m talking to you woman

 

I’m hearing voices in Dallas 

And they’re telling me

I’m all alone

The blues it’s getting louder baby

I don’t think I’m gonna make it home

 

Oh I’m hearing voices in Dallas

Theyre telling me

I’m all alone

I’m all alone

 

Wings Of Freedom

 

I learn right from wrong 

At the age of 33

I wasn’t sure how to make it work

I’ve been lying, cheating, stealing

All my life I was a cold and dirty jerk

 

Well the cocaine got the best of me

And the liquor, well it made it worse

I lost my life somewhere along the way

Like my pour soul is cursed

 

I’m on these wings of freedom

That’s how I learned to fly

Your best choice in life is living

Well you take some, steal some

You live and die, yeah

 

Too many times in my life

I just cut the ties and run

I leave trails of pain in my rearview mirror 

No wind to call my dust 

 

Somehow, someway I found you girl

My heart was open wide

Never know what love really feels like

Until you feel it from inside

 

On these wings of freedom

That’s how I learn to fly 

Your best choice in life is living

Well you take some, steal some

You live and die

 

Now I know how it just slips away 

So I get down on my knees

Oh Lord and I pray 

 

All these years later

I got everything a man could want

Yeah there’s nothing left in this world that I need

And I don’t need no one to front 

 

My brothers they’re stealing on the street

My hope is to find a way 

To make it on the side that wins

Before it’s just too damn late

 

On these wings of freedom

That’s how I learn to fly 

Your best choice in life is living

Well you take some, steal some

You live and die

 

On these wings of freedom

That’s how I learn to fly 

Your best choice in life is living

Well you take some, steal some

You live and die

 

Let Your Light Shine On Me

 

Let it shine on me

Let it shine on me 

Let your light from the lighthouse shine on me

 

Let it shine on me

Let it shine on me

Let your light from the lighthouse, shine on me

 

My lord he has done

Just what he said

Let your light from the lighthouse, shine on me

 

Well he healed all the sick 

And rose up the dead

Let your light form the lighthouse, shine on me

 

Let it shine on me

Let it shine on me 

Let your light from the lighthouse shine on me

 

Let it shine on me

Let it shine on me 

Let your light from the lighthouse shine on me

 

Well I know I got my fate

And I ain’t ashamed 

Let your light from the lighthouse, shine on me

 

Yeah the angels in heaven

Don’t write down my name

Let your light from the lighthouse, shine on me

 

Let it shine on me

Let it shine on me 

Let your light from the lighthouse shine on me

 

Let it shine on me

Let it shine on me 

Let your light from the lighthouse shine on me x2
