LYRICS

 

Roll On

 

Time keeps on ticking

The world spin around and round

Every time we cause our eyes

We wake up on the other side

 

We can try and fight him

Push up against the grain

It don’t really matter

It’s gonna happen either way

 

It’s best to keep just moving

Baby roll on 

 

She might says she loves you

She might walk away

He’s not sure if you’re the one

To get him through his day

 

But there is someone out there

Someone not like you

Can’t give up the fight for love

Got to push on through

 

Better just keep moving 

Baby roll

 

Roll on x9

 

Best to just keep moving 

Baby roll on 

 

We all pure disasters

No one ever wins

Even if you knock me out

You got blood upon your hands

 

Try to force opinions 

Try to force beliefs 

You and me are different girl

We got to be set free

 

Best to keep just moving 

Baby roll on 

 

Roll On x9

We got to keep on moving 

Baby roll on!

 

Greyhound

 

Stolen guitar, credit card

And some place to be

Is all I need

To make my get away

 

Something out there

Something for me

The kind of love that will set me free 

 

And I’m scared and all alone

Don’t know right from wrong

But I got this feeling 

It’s what I need 

 

So run away run away 

I’m leaving today 

There’s nothing like the sound 

Of a lonely greyhound 

 

Time from time 

On the road is somewhere new

I feel so lost 

So confused 

 

I left it all behind 

Everything I know 

With the one I love, they won’t believe

 

I’m living…

I’m crying inside 

My mind is restless 

But I sit in peace

 

So run away run away 

I’m leaving today 

There’s nothing like the sound 

Of a lonely greyhound 

 

So run away run away 

I’m leaving today 

There’s nothing like the sound 

Of a lonely greyhound 

 

I’m running out of time 

And these wheels in stride

This lonesome road

Is all I see

 

Waking up 

In the back road 

Brave new world 

In front of me

 

I still got a long 

A long way to go 

And I’m right where

I’m supposed to be 

 

So run away run away 

I’m leaving today 

There’s nothing like the sound 

Of a lonely greyhound 

 

So run away run away 

I’m leaving today 

There’s nothing like the sound 

Of a lonely greyhound 

 

Run away x2

 

Judgment Day

 

On judgment day

I’m gonna get dressed up real nice

On judgment day

I might be paying a real high price

 

You see I just don’t know

Which way I’m gonna go

And I wonder what the good Lord’s gonna say

On judgment day

On judgment day

 

On judgment day

Will it matter what I meant to do

On judgment day

Will my good intentions get me through

 

Will they stop me at the pearly gates

I said son it’s too little too late

You shouldn’t have let your sleet life slip away

On judgment day

On judgment day

 

If all my sins are piled up against me

I know I won’t stand a chance 

Well if I’m gonna walk the streets of hell

I guess I might as well dance

I might as well dance

 

On judgment day

I hope I can forgive myself

On judgment day 

I don’t wanna answer to anyone else

 

Cause in all I’ve ever done

I never meant to hurt no one

So I know I can stand up tall and keep the faith

On judgment day 

On judgment day 

It ain’t gonna matter anyway 

 

Show Me The Way

 

I got blood on my face

Running into tears

All my mistakes, all my fears

 

You, you saw right through me

You could see the light 

Through your heart

I feel alive

 

Show me the way x8

 

The Lord tries to judge me 

But God will set me free

There is no man alive

Who walks ahead of me

 

But your love is like the oceans 

And your tides they wash away

All my anger and sad turns to prayer

 

Show me the way x8

 

I got blood on my face

Running into tears

Theyre all my mistakes

They're all of my fears

 

But then I look into your eyes

And your smile of innocence

You are why I’m here

You are my sweet defense

 

Show me the way x16

 

The Hard Way

 

When I was born

The Lord said to me

Take your time 

And try and see

That everything happens

Just like a rhyme

 

Son you’re gonna see what I have in mind

Well it’s going down 

Just like I say 

And if you fight it

It’s gonna be the hard way 

 

Lord

Now what’s all the big deal 

Why don’t you let me run this show

You know I won’t steal 

I love your thunder 

Maybe I can be 

The first man alive to show the world 

How to survive

 

Well it’s going down

Just like I say 

And if you fight it

It’s gonna be the hard way 

The hard way 

 

Now I didn’t listen to a word he said

And for a long time 

You know I walked with the dead 

I tried to fight it, almost all of my life

But all it got me baby

Was pain and strife

 

Well it’s going down

Just like I say 

And if you fight it

It’s gonna be the hard way 

The hard way 

The hard way 

The hard way 

The more you fight it 

The more it’s gonna be the hard way 

 

The more you got em baby 

The more you got em baby

It’s gonna be the hard way

The hard way

The hard way 

 

Motel Blues

 

Same old room 

Same old town 

Same old man 

Along with a frown 

 

Day old bread 

Day old snow 

Day old sheets 

Got me feeling low

 

Sometimes I sleep in my shoes

Sometimes I get, these Motel Blues 

 

Lock up that door 

Lock up my mind

Lock up that thief 

He’s in 309 

 

These walls are thin 

Yeah but these walls are mine

Thank God these walls they do confine 

 

Sometimes I sleep in my shoes

Sometimes I get, these Motel Blues 

 

She’s made to order

She’s made for fun 

The maid she wants us

Out by one

 

Check out time 

Hey check out these 

Sometimes my life 

It brings me to my knees

 

Sometimes I sleep in my shoes

Sometimes I’m just spreading the news 

Sometimes baby I just lit the fuse

Sometimes I get these motel blues  

 

Sometimes I get, these motel blues 

 

Stay

 

She packs her bags

Lights one up

She don’t know where to go

 

Times get tough

Just too real 

She thinks it’s time to blow

 

What’s on your mind

Why are you so scared

Of the little bit alone 

 

It takes time to run away 

Sometimes there’s nowhere to go

It takes time to run away

So won’t you stay, here with me

 

I know it’s tough 

What he’s done

It can really mess you up

 

Life is hard

But it’s not all that bad

Sometimes you just need a little luck

So would you let me be

Just what you need

Oh baby, maybe we’ll become

 

It takes time to run away 

Sometimes there’s nowhere to go

It takes time to run away

So won’t you stay, here with me

 

I know it’s in your heart

You got a lot baby

You got a lot to give 

 

Put down those bags

Light one more up

And lets talk about you and me

 

You can’t keep judging me 

On that other guy 

Oh baby, not every love will be a lie

 

It takes time to run away 

Sometimes there’s nowhere to go

It takes time to run away

So won’t you stay, here with me x4

 

Until The Day I Die

 

Take me to the river

Baptize me in love

I put my feet down in the water

And thank the good lord up above

 

You will be my woman

And I will be your man

And through thick and thin

We will take a stand

 

I will kiss you in the morning

I’m gonna kiss you at night

I make sure I’ll tell more truths

Than I will tell you lies

And I will do my best 

To never make you cry

And I promise to love you

Until the day I die

 

Well the river keeps a flowing

Through good times and bad

And sometimes when the tree may fall

It splits across the land

 

The current is getting stronger 

It keeps moving towards the sea

So we go with the flow

Hoping it will set us free

 

I will kiss you in the morning

I’m gonna kiss you at night

I’ll make sure your dreams come true

If the bar ain’t set real high

And I will do my best 

To never say goodbye

And I promise to love you

Until the day I die

 

And then when we are all alone

I love you till the break of dawn 

I’m gonna love you all night long

 

Now the times they are a changing

But we remain the same

Walking through the storms alive 

With smiles upon our face

 

Well if you don’t stand for something

We’ll fall for anything

So I will stand for you

Baby and you will stand for me

 

I will kiss you in the morning

You will kiss me in that light

You made sure we made love

Almost every night

And I will do my best 

Lord to never make you cry

And I promise to love you

Until the day I die x2

 

We nothing but time, time, time

 

Hello Midnight

 

Hello midnight

Goodbye sunshine

I can’t see your face

You can’t see mine

Once that darkness falls

Everything will be just fine

 

You broke me heart

Took all I had

You’re an evil woman

You’re just as bad, bad, bad

I don’t need your love

Just makes me sad

 

Hello midnight

Goodbye sunshine

I can’t see your face

Well you can’t see mine

Once that darkness falls

Everything’s alright

 

You’re a big lord girl

From the other side

Where evil ladies

Have made a bind

Need more souls

Need more pride

 

Hello midnight

Goodbye sunshine

I can’t see your face

And you can’t see mine

Once that darkness falls 

Everything will be just fine

Once that darkness falls

You know everything’s alright

Once that’s darkness falls

Hello midnight 

The Southern Side

 

I walked to New York City in the pouring rain

I jumped in the ocean in the California waves

I watched the sun go down over Tokyo in lights

But nothing compares to the southern side of life

 

I love the heat wave that we have on Halloween

The fish and crab for sale on the side of the street

But where your momma makes cornbread

It’s so thick you need a knife

It’s so much sweeter baby 

On the southern side of life

 

It’s like all the love and the sugar just melt into the sun

We don’t need no morning baby just to have a little fun

Everywhere that I am in this world

You know that I am on the run
I’m driving south baby 

To kiss the only one

Oh yeah 

 

Now you can keep your politics 

And your freezing rain

Put on your overcoats

?

?

 

I’ll take hot summer Texas Christmas 

Eating fried chicken with my wife

Lord it’s so much sweeter babe

On the southern side of life

The southern side of life

The southern side of life

The southern side of life 

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

 
 

Please, Please, Please

 

Please, please, please 

Oh baby please don’t let me go

I said please, please, please

Oh baby please, don’t let me go

I know I done you wrong baby 

And it’s breaking my heart so

 

I been crying baby crying

Lord these tears they won’t let me be

I’m crying baby, crying 

I said these tears won’t let me be 

A life without you baby

Oh is pure misery

 

I said baby, baby, baby

Oh baby please, gimme one more chance 

I said baby, baby, baby

Oh baby please, gimme one more chance

Gimme one more chance darling

I promise you I can change 

 

I said please, please, please

Oh baby please, don’t let me go

I said please, please, please

Oh baby please, don’t let me go

Oh baby, I know I done you wrong

And it’s breaking my heart so
