Lyrics

1. GOOD ONE COMIN 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

chorus

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

chorus

2. LIKE I AM

Well I’m mean as gravel I’m poor as dirt
I like things better the way they were
well I’m strong in the head but I get things done
I spend too much money to have a little fun
Here you are you come around
you want me to settle down

chorus

Before you jump you need to know
it’s a crazy thing the way I roll
I ain’t changin’ I’m a stubborn man
can you love me like i am
can you love me baby, like I am
Well I’m stuck in my ways and I grew up hard
I drink milk out the carton and juice from your jar
well some people say I sleep too much
I just sleep when I can till I have to get up
Here I am what do you think?
I guess a nod is as good as a wink

chorus

3. BOTTOM OF THIS

I ain’t tryin to be no jerk
It’s just that I just got off from work
and I know you’d like to bend my ear
I wanna listen and that’s sincere
can’t a fella have just one beer

chorus

Before the boss, the bank, the box full of bills
empty gas tank and it’s all uphill
the wife, the kids, why do we all exist?
add politics, religion and war to the list
tell me, is there anything that I missed?
and I’ll get to the bottom of that
after I get to the bottom of this
Well I look outside and see a world on fire
they’re lowering the boom and the creeks gettin’ higher
gotta be ready cause we’re on the brink
I’ll do better after just one drink
gimme a minute so I can unthink

chorus

About the boss, the bank, the box full of bills
empty gas tank and it’s all uphill
the wife, the kids, why do we all exist?
add politics religion and war to the list
tell me, is there anything that I missed?
and I’ll get to the bottom of that
after I get to the bottom of this
Gotta be ready cause we’re on the brink
I’ll do better after just one drink
gimme a minute so I can unthink

chorus

4. 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

chorus

Up in smoke
down in flames
jump on board
roll em’ like a freight train
clap yo hand
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

chorus

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

5. 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

chorus

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 time

chorus

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

6. WHO INVENTED THE WHEEL

I wanna know who invented the wheel
tell me who discovered steel
it was the wheel and the steel that caused this pain
and made the car that took her away
I wanna know who found the rock
tell me who laid the blacktop
it was the rock and the blacktop that caused this pain
and made the road for the car that took her away
I wanna know who invented the wheel

chorus

Somebody give me a name
I just need someone to blame
for all of this heartache
and pain I been feelin’ since she let me go
I wanna know
I wanna know who invented the time
I didn’t spend when she was mine
it was all that time I didn’t take
before the rock and the blacktop made the highway
for the wheel and the steel and the car that took her away

chorus

I wanna know who invented the wheel

8. I’D BE LYIN’
Tell you I’d be home every night
breakfast in bed and we’ll never fight
say I’m wrong when I know I’m right
but baby I’d be lyin’
Only stayin’ gone for a day or two
pretendin’ I’m too good to be true
sayin’ I’d write a song about you
but baby I’d be lyin’
Everybody’s gonna tell you what to do
you can believe what you wanna believe
but let me tell you what’s the truth

chorus

Baby I
I’d be lyin’
like all those two faced
back stabbin’ double talkers
tryin’ to get to you
If I could you know I would be
comin’ right back home where I belong
I’d be lyin’ next to you
Call you every day wherever I go
I swear you’re never gonna hear the word no
promise that I’ll never say I told you so
but baby I’d be lyin’
I’ll let you take your time I’ll never rush
I swear I’ll never drink too much
never think about another woman’s touch
but baby I’d be lyin’
Everybody’s gonna judge me through and through
you can believe what you wanna believe
but let me tell you what’s the truth

chorus

Everybody’s gonna tell you what to do
you can believe what you wanna believe
but let me tell you what’s the truth

9. PRAYER FOR THE LITTLE MAN

Callin’ home hold the phone like a lifeline
let the voices fill me up like a drunkard’s wine
another fix I’m fine
hang it up kill the light and just lay there
think about that girl we had it all I swear
Yea we thought it’d last forever
then we finalized
but no matter where I a
every night when I close my eyes

chorus

Say a prayer for the little man
cause he’s gonna need a helpin’ hand
now and then and I won’t be around
can you just let me know
there’s an angel lookin’ down
say a prayer for a mother’s love
yea I hope that it’ll be enough
cause I know that it’s tough
and he don’t understand
say a prayer for the little man
I remember my daddy’s phone calls
just a kid I’d always talk to him out in the hall
to keep from settin’ mama off
so I’ve been right in your shoes son
never thought in a million years
I’d ever be the one who
Thought it’d last forever
then we finalized
But every night when I close my eyes

10. 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

chorus

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

11. SHAKE YOUR MAGNOLIA

I been around the block once or twice, baby
I never seen a girl lookin’ so nice, baby
I guess the third time makes me a fool
just like the boys in the corner
tryin’ to look so cool
You look like trouble with a capital T, baby
your kind of drama is alright with me, baby
you can make a mess of me so fine
yea you got me bait, hook, sinker and line

chorus

Come on baby shake your magnolia
come on baby do what I told ya
come on baby give it all you got tonight
I would walk through flames to get to you, baby
you shook that thang I forgot my own name, baby
I guess I’ll have to stand in line
If it takes all night I’ll give you my last dime

chorus

Come on baby shake your magnolia
come on baby do what mama told ya
come on baby give us all a shot tonight

10. FREEDOM SONG

That man in the mirror starin’ back at me
ain’t the man I used to see
I been walkin’ the line a long time
I need a change
Breakin’ my back workin’ double shifts
the weight of the world’s gettin’ hard to lift
I’m startin’ to think I need to break a link
in this chain
Somethin’s got to give
this ain’t no way to live

chorus

Put me on a highway
the interstate
a dirt road
to anyplace
as long as I’m long gone
chasin’ down some blue skies
in my old truck
Tune the world out
Turn the radio up
Sing along to my freedom song
Well I got a good woman and she understands
every now and then her old man
needs some down time
to clear his mind and unplug
This time tomorrow you won’t see my face
there’ll be one less rat runnin’ in this race
I’ll be soothin’ my soul with a fishin’ pole
that’s what I love

chorus
