Lyrics

Disc 1:

1. Shakin’ Hands With The Holy Ghost

Spend the night like wide open
I ain’t got nowhere to go
Yeah my baby’s out and mad at me
Yeah she tearing up the floor

We got the Tennessee champagne
And the moon just fine
And my Johnson said it baby
Yeah she helps me draw the line

As the crow flies baby
Gonna get me apart time
Gonna light me up here
Like the 4th of July

Everybody knows, baby take it slow
Feel just like I’m singing
With the heavenly host
Everybody said, everybody knows
Just like shaking hands
With the Holy Ghost

She got the stuff that I need
Keeps me coming back for more
I ain’t never gonna break away
Got a humpkin me for sure

As the crow flies baby
Gonna get me apart time
Gonna light me up here
Like the 4th of July

Everybody knows, baby take it slow
Feel just like I’m singing
With the heavenly host
Everybody said, everybody knows
Just like shaking hands
With the Holy Ghost
Alright, mhmmm yeah

Everybody knows, baby take it slow
Feel just like I’m singing
With the heavenly host
Everybody said, everybody knows
Just like shaking hands
With the Holy Ghost

2. Sanctified Woman

I went lookin for a sanctified woman
she was just the kind of woman I was hopin’ to find
I left home in the middle of December
she’s the only kind of woman could keep me in line
I found a girl just across the line in Georgia
she was livin’ by the highway in a pink doublewide
we left town in a 79 camaro
had a bag full of nothin’ and a bottle of wine

Can’t you see me go up in flames
Can’t you hear me screamin’ your name
I need some redemption today
from that sanctified woman

I went back to my home in Alabama
saw my Daddy in the driveway with a tear in his eye
he said “son, what you doin’ with that woman?”
said I gotta keep on runnin’ ‘fore I run outta tim

I don’t even know I don’t even know
what we’re gonna do where we’re gonna go
I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
well we gotta go somewhere cause we sure ain’t got no home

3. Testify

It was in the spring on a sunny day
Saw a good boy turn and go the wrong way
He was too busy being hard as stone
To ever realize he was all alone

Wanna testify about the things I’ve seen
Wash my hands but they never come clean
Testify, some win, some lose
Everybody’s gonna have to stand accused, yeah

Saw a little girl in a redneck bar
Ain’t so sure she wants to go that far
Can’t drink liquor unless she holds her nose
She’s about to find out that everything goes

Testify about the things I’ve seen
Wash my hands but they never come clean
Testify, some win, some lose
Everybody’s gonna have to stand accused, yeah

It was in the spring on a sunny day
Saw a good boy turn and go the wrong way
He was too busy looking hard as stone
To ever realize he was all alone

Wanna testify about the things I’ve seen
Wash my hands but they never come clean
Testify, some win, some lose
Everybody

Testify about the things I’ve seen
Wash my hands but they never come clean
Testify, some win, some lose
Everybody’s gonna have to stand accused, yeah

Wanna testify
Wanna testify
Wanna testify
Testify…

4. Good One Coming On

Two six packs of Shiner
99 cent butane lighter
Lucky Strikes and a fifth of Patron
ice down that Igloo cooler
tank of gas that oughta do er’
I can feel a good one comin’on

Throw in Ray Wylie Hubbard
sing along to “Redneck Mother”
any blues I had before are gone
another workin’ week is over
no chance of stayin’ sober
I can feel a good one comin’ on

Yea we’re gonna roll all night
we’re gonna get the feelin’ right
we’re gonna keep this party rockin’
till the break of dawn
I can feel a good one comin’ on

Three blondes in a rag top Mustang
followed us down to the lake and…
didn’t have to think about that too long
skinny dippin’ in the bright moonlight
situation couldn’t be more right
I can feel a good one comin’ on

5. Six Ways To Sunday

I’m gonna love you six ways to Sunday
I wanna do it like it’s never been done
I’m gonna love you six ways to Sunday
I wanna hear that woman speaking in tongue

Brother I’ve been backsiding us a little too long
You think I know by now what’s right and what’s wrong
Living it up when the sky’s ain’t blue
Chasing my tail a couple other one’s too

I’m gonna love you six ways to Sunday
I wanna do it like it’s never been done
I’m gonna love you six ways to Sunday
I wanna hear that woman speaking in tongue

Honey I’ll pick up mistakes and drink the straight line too
Long as I get a chance to lay my hands on you
I got my mind right toed in the line
Look up and tell me does my halo shine

I’m gonna love you six ways to Sunday
I wanna do it like it’s never been done
I’m gonna love you six ways to Sunday
I wanna hear that woman speaking in tongue

You knocked the angel right out off of my shoulder
Right away my little devil took over
Woman if you need a disciple
We can have a little revival

I’m gonna love you six ways to Sunday
I’m gonna love you six ways to Sunday
I’m gonna love you six ways to Sunday
I’m gonna love you six ways to Sunday
Yeah

6. Ain’t Got The Blues

Well my fall from grace was a sight to see
Good turned to bad and bad turned to misery
I found out what it is and what it’s not
And all I ask for sure ain’t what I got, no

Well I’ve been rained on, rode hard and put up wet
Danced with the devil ’til I’m in debt
Took all I got and there ain’t much left of me
I’ve been knocked down, drug out and left for dead
Barely held together by a few old threads
And I’m still here there ain’t much left to see, no
Well I’m still holding on and there ain’t much left of me

Thought that I hit bottom but I ain’t there yet
‘Cause you’d be surprised of how low a man can get
I watched stolen dreams slip through my hands
And now I’m getting out of here still while I still can

Well I’ve neen rained on, rode hard and put up wet
Danced with the devil ’til I’m in debt
Took all I got and there ain’t much left of me
I’ve been knocked down, drug out and left for dead
Barely held together by a few old threads
And I’m still here there ain’t much left to see, no
Well I’m still holding on and there ain’t much left of me
That’s right

Well my fall from grace was a sight to see
Nobody even cared what became of me
Do I have to get down on my knees
And ask the Lord, Lord have mercy on me

Well I’ve been rained on, rode hard and put up wet
Danced with the devil ’til I’m in debt
Took all I got and there ain’t much left of me
I’ve been knocked down, drug out and left for dead
Barely held together by a few old threads
And I’m still here there ain’t much left to see, no
Well I’m still holding on and there ain’t much left of me
There ain’t much left of me
I said there ain’t much left of me, no
Yeah well there ain’t much left of me

7. Lucky Seven

I ain’t never been prison
But I probably should’ve gone
‘Cause I broke the law 12 dozen times
But I never did get caught
I’m a different kind of daredevil
Than alot of folks I know
But I still walk the tight rope with no net down below

Hey I’m lucky as a seven
I dance to my own tune
I may not get to heaven Lord
For the wicked things I do
If you want to walk in my boots
And take all that I took
It ain’t as easy as it looks

Life ain’t always simple
Some things you can’t explain
If you quit that’s what you get
‘Cause you couldn’t take a pain
I ain’t never had it easy
That’s just the way it is
But if circumstance opened up the chance
I’d do it all again

Hey I’m lucky as a seven
I dance to my own tune
I may not get to heaven Lord
For the wicked things I do
If you want to walk in my boots
And take all that I took
It ain’t as easy as it looks

Ain’t no place to turn around
If I scream don’t come unwound

Hey I’m lucky as a seven
I dance the mountain
I may not get to heaven Lord
For the wicked things I do
If you want to walk in my boots
And take all what I do
It ain’t as easy as it looks

It ain’t easy baby,no no
I tell you, oh now
He-he-heyy

8. Pretty Little Lie

Come over here and sit by me
Tell me everything I wanna hear
I’ll pretend that I don’t see
The reason you’re back over here
You look cold I’ll build a fire
There’s a box full of wine in the fridge
We won’t talk about what’s his name
That’s just water under bridge

Yeah, you made up your mind
But he ain’t here with us tonight
So kiss me one more time,
Cross every “T” and dot every “I”
Of that pretty little lie
That pretty little lie

I thought we had it all figured out
There was me and there was you and him
I was hoping for a chance to cross you out
But then you came walking in
And it hit me like I ain’t been hit before
I guess one of us never changed
Now you and me setting on the floor
I let you get away with anything

Yeah, you made up your mind
But he ain’t here with us tonight
So kiss me one more time,
Cross every “T” and dot every “I”
Of that pretty little lie
That pretty little lie
That pretty little lie
That pretty little lie

And you made up your mind
But he ain’t here with us tonight
So kiss me one more time,
Cross every “T” and dot every “I”
Of that pretty little lie
That pretty little lie
Your pretty little lie

That pretty little lie

Yeah you a damn liar
Yeah you a damn liar
Baby you a damn liar
Yeah you a damn liar

9. Restless

I can’t get the music up as loud as I want
I can’t play a big enough honky tonk
Can’t find a whiskey glass that’s quite tall enough
or that extra gear in my old truck
I’m restless baby

If I had the perfect woman I’d want twins
can’t get enough ink under my skin
I’ll burn the carton when my smokes are all through
can’t kick enough ass in these old boots

Cause I’m restless
I’m sleepless
on this quest I must go
out here searchin’
for somethin’
what it is I don’t know
might have to find it under my headstone
yes I’m restless
and I won’t rest till the restless is gone

Can’t ride enough miles in that old bus
ain’t a man in charge that I ain’t cussed
I broke the law until it’s plum busted up
how high is Heaven? I hope it’s high enough

10. Up in Smoke

Hit town like a freight train runnin’
starin’ at us like deer in the headlights
never thought you had another thing comin’
did the same damn thing to em’ last night

Everywhere we go everywhere we been
leave a trail of ashes and a trail of sin
pack up the gear let’s hit the road
we got a long way to go now

Up in smoke
down in flames
jump on board
roll em’ like a freight train
clap yo hands
stomp yo feet
boogie on down to the redneck backbeat
throwdown it’s a hillbilly hoedown
fire it up we can go all night now
come on y’all ain’t no joke
watch the world go up in smoke

Little gal in the skin tight britches
get up and get down to the front row
sure hope your boyfriend ain’t lookin’
he won’t get hurt by what he don’t know
he don’t know that I know and you know
that I got some plans for you, baby

Everywhere we go everywhere we been
leave a trail of ashes and a trail of sin
pack up the gear let’s hit the road
we got a long way to go now

Everywhere we go everywhere we been
leave a trail of ashes and a trail of sin
pack up the gear let’s hit the road
we got a long way to go now

Watch em’ now

11. Crimson Moon

Homecoming queen, about to turn 18
Just a couple of months younger than
That wanna be James Dean
She can wait, just say when
She ain’t gonna leave a note
She ain’t gonna tell a friend
He smeared the rain on the black top
She heard a banshee in the wind

Hey, hey, hey darling please
Let’s put this hard times into breeze
Let’s go find a little breathing room
Maybe in the light of a crimson moon

He was named after the hurricane
Bloom through in 79 and he did just ’bout the same
Ain’t no point no way of living it down
Standing at the crossroads
At the sideways one like town
Screamed Oh Lord is the only sound she make
She climbs on and wraps her hands around his waist

Hey, hey, hey darling please
Let’s put this hard times into breeze
Let’s go find a little breathing room
Maybe in the light of a crimson moon

Nothing worse, the hair left behind
Just two lost souls they go running off into the night
They felt the fire of running on two wheels
If they don’t stop tonight Lord knows they never will

Hey, hey, hey darling please
Let’s put this hard times into breeze
Let’s go find a little breathing room
Maybe in the light of a crimson moon

12. The Whippoorwill

Going through life, the righteous way
The only way so the preacher would say
You put me on the Jericho road
Barefoot and smiling, standing there by the theon road

Well I dream that I heard that whippoorwill sing
Yeah she sang my song and called me by name
Well I hung my head in shame, Oh yeah

You sold my years together like a pachtwork quilt
You broken veils blooms, and I’ll never will
The lessons I remember and some that I forgot
Are precious and pure now, like a 100 circle drive

Well I dream that I heard that whippoorwill sing
Yeah she sang my song and called me by name
Well I hung my head in shame, Oh yeah

I’m gonna sing my song with the whippoorwill at
In a sweetheart harmony
Though I know just what went with her
She’s always here with me
Always here with me

Well I dream that I heard that whippoorwill sing
Yeah she sang my song and called me by name
Well I dream that I heard that whippoorwill sing
Yeah she sang my song and called me by name

Starting all over again
Yes I’m starting all over again

13. Son of Bourbon

My mama drank scotch whiskey
and my daddy drank Jim Beam
I was concieved
just outside of New Orleans
told my ma he loved her
while ole Elvin Bishop played
daddy’d be the worst mistake
my mama ever made

I’m a son of the bourbon
I’m a son of a bitch
I’m the dying breed of rock and roll
left ass up in a ditch
I’ve been up against the law
I’ve served some time in jail
I’ve been known for gettin’ stoned
and I’ve raised my share of hell
They went back to Alabama
one cold October day
soon as I was born
my daddy up and ran away
we got by on gettin’ by
we’d live from week to week
as long as I’ve got two good hands
I’ll work to earn my keep

My mama drank scotch whiskey
and my daddy drank Jim Beam
I was concieved
just outside of New Orleans
when my life is over
and my time has come to pass
bury me upside down
so the world can kiss my ass

Disc 2:

1. Everybody Knows She’s Mine

She look good when she wake up in the morning
Even better than she did last night
And when she smiles at me and kiss at my cheek
I’m thinking Lord I must be living right
I ain’t about to say I ain’t lucky
But some might say I’m a fool, yeah
The chances are I’m doing fine so far
‘Cause her mama even said I’m cool

She gets me high as a Georgia pine
Wild as a muscadine vine
Hotter than the deep south summer time
Yeah everybody knows she’s mine
That’s right

Well it might be a couple kind of like her
But rest assure brother this one mine
I’ll be right there in her back pocket
She got my name tattoo’d where the sun don’t shine
Saw you looking when she walking with me
I don’t blame you she’s a hell of a girl, now
I know how you feel it ain’t no big deal,
I’m the luckiest man in the world

She gets me high as a Georgia pine
Wild as a muscadine vine
Hotter than the deep south summer time
Yes everybody knows she’s mine
That’s right

Hit it!
Yeah oh-ohho
Hey!
Right now

She gets me high as a Georgia pine
Wild as a muscadine vine
Hotter than the deep south summer time
Yeah everybody knows she’s mine

Yeah everybody
You know everybody
Seems like everybody
Everybody knows she’s mine

2. One Horse Town

In the tiny town where I come from
You grew up doing what your daddy does
And you don’t ask questions you do it just because
You don’t climb to high or dream too much
With a whole lot of work and a little bit of luck
You can wind up right back where your daddy was

This little bitty town it ain’t nothing new
We all stick around ’cause they all tell us too
Swallow your pride just to make your family proud
If I didn’t think that it would shut the whole place down
I’d ride my poney right out of this one horse town

Yeah this one horse town
I’m an old married man at the age of 23
Got 2 little boys on the baseball team
And that might be their only ticket out
All they got is a worn out name
And a daddy that could’ve gone all the way
But I hang my saddle up and I settled down

This little bitty town it ain’t nothing new
We all stick around ’cause they all tell us too
Swallow your pride just to make your family proud
If I didn’t think that it would shut the whole place down
I’d ride my poney right out of this one horse town
Yeah this one horse town
Oh yeah

This little bitty town oh yeah it ain’t nothing new
We all stick around ’cause they all tell us too
Swallow your pride just to keep your family proud
If I didn’t think that it would shut the whole thing down
I’d sattle that one horse and ride it right out of this town

3. Lesson In A Bottle

There’s a lesson in a bottle
that never gets learned
sweep out the ashes
of the bridges I’ve burned
white lines and wild times
passed out cold and left behind
then I’m right back
in the saddle again

There’s a lesson in a bottle
bartender pour a shot I’ll
have a whiskey
I believe it’s my turn
There’s a lesson in a bottle
bartender pour a shot I’ll
have a whiskey
cause I’ll never learn
Blue lights and fist fights
one too many out all nights
like a freight train
that’s done run outta track
I’ve been a winner and a loser
sloppy drunk and a drug abuser
if I get through this, Lord
I swear I’ll cut way back

I’m a long, long way
from where I was goin’
It’s been a long, long time
my scars are sure showin’
but school’s in session
bring the liquor

4. Ain’t Much Left of Me

Well my fall from grace was a sight to see
Good turned to bad and bad turned to misery
I found out what it is and what it’s not
And all I ask for sure ain’t what I got, no

Well I’ve been rained on, rode hard and put up wet
Danced with the devil ’til I’m in debt
Took all I got and there ain’t much left of me
I’ve been knocked down, drug out and left for dead
Barely held together by a few old threads
And I’m still here there ain’t much left to see,no
Well I’m still holding on and there ain’t much left of me

Thought that I hit bottom but I ain’t there yet
‘Cause you’d be surprised of how low a man can get
I watched stolen dreams slip through my hands
And now I’m getting out of here still while I still can

Well I’ve neen rained on, rode hard and put up wet
Danced with the devil ’til I’m in debt
Took all I got and there ain’t much left of me
I’ve been knocked down, drug out and left for dead
Barely held together by a few old threads
And I’m still here there ain’t much left to see,no
Well I’m still holding on and there ain’t much left of me
That’s right

Well my fall from grace was a sight to see
Nobody even cared what became of me
Do I have to get down on my knees
And ask the Lord ,Lord have mercy on me

Well I’ve been rained on, rode hard and put up wet
Danced with the devil ’til I’m in debt
Took all I got and there ain’t much left of me
I’ve been knocked down, drug out and left for dead
Barely held together by a few old threads
And I’m still here there ain’t much left to see,no
Well I’m still holding on and there ain’t much left of me
There ain’t much left of me
I said there ain’t much left of me,no
Yeah well there ain’t much left of me

5. Leave a Scar

The old man was a good man he raised his children right
He taught us how to work hard and showed us how to fight
Told me about the good Lord and when to use a gun
Made me very proud of where it is that I come from

When I die put my father in the big same urn
Look down at me smiling I don’t want no beating tune
All I leave behind me is a rag of old guitars
I may not change the world but I’m gonna leave a scar

Years a row nobody, the old man turned me loose
Way cross town I learned about those sad ol’ country blues
Taught me how to prep my heart from trying to make it right
Told me not to ever break one alone at a time

When I die put my father in the big same urn
Look down at me smiling I don’t want no beating tune
All I leave behind me is a rag of old guitars
I may not change the world but I’m gonna leave a scar

Hope you have me on your memory like a painted old tattoo
I might not make a history book but I’ll burn a page or two
Yeah

When I die put my father in the big same urn
Look down at me smiling I don’t want no beating tune
All I leave behind me is a rag of old guitars
I may not change the world but I’m gonna leave a scar

6. Sleeping Dogs

Well I’m not trying to get in the way
Minding my own, got nothing to say
About nobody, that’s right nobody
Don’t shake my tree, don’t ride on my cage
You and me we’ll be on the same page
I know trouble, don’t make no trouble

Yeah you better let the sleeping dogs lie
‘Cause soon you gonna understand why
You gonna get bit right between the eyes

Well let me tell you how it all went down
Funky little joint on the edge of town
Call a punch pump, oh wait it had too much
Well push come to shove, and my came to blows
Spill some blood and I broke his nose
Yes I had to do it, mama that’s all it was to it

Now you better let the sleeping dogs lie
‘Cause soon you gonna understand why
And you gonna get bit right between the eyes
Said you best let the sleeping dogs lie
Come on yeah

Make no mistake let there be no doubt
Paint me in the corner I’ll fight my way out
The more I love a story brother this is it
I’ll be all over you, like stick on shit

And you better let the sleeping dogs lie
Soon you gonna understand why
You gonna get bit right between the eyes
If you don’t you let the sleeping dogs lie

You better let the sleeping dogs lie
‘Cause soon you gonna understand why
You gonna get bit right between the eyes
Said you better let us sleep in dogs eyes

7. Payback’s a Bitch

Red sky this morning
Was not much of a warning
For what you had planned for me
Hell hath no fury
She’s the judge and she’s my jury
She pulled the world
Right out from under my feet

I’ll take it like a man
No need of feeling sorry for me
But you better understand
Karma is about a step behind me

If I were you, I’d sleep with one eye open
I’d keep praying keep hoping
You oughta be watching your back
If I were you, I’d be looking over my shoulder
’Cause every day gets closer to what’s coming for you
Payback’s a bitch

Don’t be so foolish
As to think you made it thru this
Smelling like a rose and fancy free
Don’t think you wrecked it
I’ll get you when you least suspect it
And tear down that old tangled web you weave

You’re looking at a man
Shining happy like a brand new penny
I bet you’re looking for a friend
Everybody’s got a hand that’s empty

If I were you, I’d sleep with one eye open
I’d keep praying keep hoping
You oughta be watching your back
If I were you, I’d be looking over my shoulder
’Cause every day gets closer to what’s coming for you
Payback’s a bitch

If I were you I’d be careful of the stones I’m throwing
I’d be blowing on the dice I’m rolling
You oughta be watching your back

If I were you I’d be looking ’round every corner
Ain’t nobody ever gonna warn ya
You know that it’s true
Payback’s a bitch

8. Up the Road

Lately I can tell
You getting pretty sick of me
To tell you the truth,
I’ve had about enough of me too
All this cursing and fighting
Who’s wrong and who’s right and
It don’t mean a thing
It don’t mean a damn thing

‘Cause the grass ain’t always greener
Just like we’re always told
You may not have the winning hand
But you ain’t got revoked
And it just seems that much warmer
When you coming from a cold
‘Cause things ain’t always better
Up the road

People they’ll be talking,
Rest assure they always do
They got it off sus town
Everything that we go through
Let’s give them all the fame
Tell them where they can go
What do they know
What in the hell do they know

‘Cause the grass ain’t always greener
Just like we’re always told
You may not have the winning hand
But you ain’t got revoked
And it just seems that much warmer
When you coming from a cold
‘Cause things ain’t always better
Up the road

Things ain’t always better up the road
Things ain’t always better up the road
Yeah

‘Cause the grass ain’t always greener
Just like we’re always told
You may not have the winning hand
But you ain’t got revoked
And it just seems that much warmer
When you coming from a cold
‘Cause things ain’t always better
Up the road

Things ain’t always better up the road
Things ain’t always better up the road
Things ain’t always better up the road
Things ain’t always better up the road

9. Shake Your Magnolia

Spend the night like wide open
I ain’t got nowhere to go
Yeah my baby’s out and mad at me
Yeah she tearing up the floor

We got the Tennessee champagne
And the moon just fine
And my Johnson said it baby
Yeah she helps me draw the line

As the crow flies baby
Gonna get me apart time
Gonna light me up here
Like the 4th of July

Everybody knows, baby take it slow
Feel just like I’m singing
With the heavenly host
Everybody said, everybody knows
Just like shaking hands
With the Holy Ghost

She got the stuff that I need
Keeps me coming back for more
I ain’t never gonna break away
Got a humpkin me for sure

As the crow flies baby
Gonna get me apart time
Gonna light me up here
Like the 4th of July

Everybody knows, baby take it slow
Feel just like I’m singing
With the heavenly host
Everybody said, everybody knows
Just like shaking hands
With the Holy Ghost
Alright, mhmmm yeah

Everybody knows, baby take it slow
Feel just like I’m singing
With the heavenly host
Everybody said, everybody knows
Just like shaking hands
With the Holy Ghost
