  1. The Dirt Road

    Daddy worked hard for his dollar
    He said some folks don't but that's okay
    Well, they won't know which road to follow
    Because an easy street might lead you astray

    I'll take the dirt road it's all I know
    I've been walking it for years
    It's gone where I need to go

    Oh, it ain't easy, it ain't supposed to be
    So I'll take my time and life won't pass me by
    'Cause it's right there to find, on the dirt road

    I have lived life in the fast lane
    You gotta watch your back and look both ways
    When it's said and done the time we have is borrowed
    You better make real sure you're headed the right way

    I'll take the dirt road it's all I know
    I've been walking it for years
    It's gone where I need to go

    Oh, it ain't easy, it ain't supposed to be
    So I'll take my time and life won't pass me by
    'Cause it's right there to find

    I'll take the dirt road it's all I know
    I've been walking it for years
    It's gone where I need to go

    Oh, it ain't easy, it ain't supposed to be
    So I'll take my time and life won't pass me by
    'Cause it's right there to find, on the dirt road

    On the dirt road

     

     

  2. Some Girls Do

    She turned up her nose as she walked by my Cadillac
    From the corner of my eye, I saw you and you laughed
    You were sittin' on the swing on your front porch
    Paintin' your nails like you were bored
    And you yelled she was sure impressed with you

    Well, I ain't first class but I ain't white trash
    I'm wild and a little crazy too
    Some girls don't like boys like me
    Aw, but some girls do

    I yelled and asked if you would like a ride
    When we pulled out of your yard, I bald a tire
    You was laughing at me, I was doing James Dean
    You was the prettiest girl I'd ever seen
    When you rolled your eyes and twirled my pink fur dice

    Well, I ain't first class but I ain't white trash
    I'm wild and a little crazy too
    Some girls don't like boys like me
    Aw, but some girls do

    Well good ole' boys don't get no breaks
    And rich boys think they got what it takes
    But there's someone for each of us they say

    Well, I ain't first class but I ain't white trash
    I'm wild and a little crazy too
    Some girls don't like boys like me
    Aw, but some girls do

    Well, I ain't first class but I ain't white trash
    I'm wild and a little crazy too
    Some girls don't like boys like me
    Aw, but some girls do

    I said, some girls do
    You know some girls do
    Like boys like me
    You know some girls do

     

  3. Another Trip To The Well

    She finds her self alone more and more these days
    The man she loves is gone but the love ain't gone away
    Like drawing water up from a well beneath the earth
    She dips down in the love, she's known to wash away the hurt

    And she keeps on goin' even when the heartache's growin' strong
    There's a peace she's knowin' like a river flowin' on
    It's been there all along and when the darkness fell
    She made another trip to the well

    She's worked real hard for love, she's earned her memories
    She may be looking back but that ain't all she sees
    She wears a cross around her neck to show what she believes
    It's the love at heart not the love at hand that never ever leaves

    And she keeps on goin' even when the heartache's growin' strong
    There's a peace she's knowin' like a river flowin' on
    It's been there all along and when the darkness fell
    She made another trip to the well

    And she keeps on goin' even when the heartache's growin' strong
    There's a peace she's knowin' like a river flowin' on
    It's been there all along and when the darkness fell
    She made another trip to the well

     

  4. Time And Love

    As she drags on a cigarette
    You can tell it's been her first pack
    A leopard coat and piled high hair
    Thick makeup, skin tight slacks
    Tonight she's steppin' out
    She thinks If only he could see her now

    She will leave a trail of turnin' heads
    Smokin' bridges and ice cold beds
    Avoiding the blame at any cost
    She is spinning wheels and throwing stones
    Burying hearts and digging up them bones
    Making up for time and love that was lost
    She's makin' up for time and love that was lost

    She's headed down a one way road
    Where hearts don't touch and ends don't meet
    Fired by a danger glow
    It's in her eyes and on the street
    And tomorrow they will talk about
    How tonight she went to town

    She will leave a trail of turnin' heads
    Smokin' bridges and ice cold beds
    Avoiding the blame at any cost
    She is spinning wheels and throwing stones
    Burying hearts and digging up them bones
    Making up for time and love that was lost
    She's makin' up for time and love that was lost

    And tomorrow he will think about
    How tonight she went to town

    She will leave a trail of turnin' heads
    Smokin' bridges and ice cold beds
    Avoiding the blame at any cost
    She is spinning wheels and throwing stones
    Burying hearts and digging up them bones
    Making up for time and love that was lost
    She's makin' up for time and love that was lost

     

  5. Ruby Red Shoes

    Well, it seemed to be just a dream
    But how is one to know
    There was a cat and a man made of tin
    There was a chick and an old scarecrow

    I got all shook up, I raised my cup
    To toast that girl I'd seen
    I got my nerve, I threw a curve
    And I told her what I mean

    I said, ooh, ooh, where'd you get them ruby red shoes
    They look like they could take a man to a place he could use
    We could tap our heels girl and chase away my blues
    If I could talk you out of them ruby red shoes

    It ain't hard to tell on a carousel
    Just where that horse might go
    So I jumped ship a shootin' from my hip
    Headed down that golden road

    Well, the sky got black so I turned back
    I'm not one to steal the show
    Scarecrow was cool and the cat was too
    But me and tin man want to know

    I said, ooh, ooh, where'd you get them ruby red shoes
    They look like they could take a man to a place he could use
    We could tap our heels girl and chase away my blues
    If I could talk you out of them ruby red shoes

    I said, ooh, ooh, where'd you get them ruby red shoes
    They look like they could take a man to a place he could use
    We could tap our heels girl and chase away my blues
    If I could talk you out of them ruby red shoes

     

     

  6. Fire In The Rain

    Well, I've been running right behind you
    Lord, I'm wearing out my shoes
    I been saving up my lovin', saving it for you
    Well, it's like trying to build a fire in the rain

    It's like trying to build a fire
    When the rain is pouring down
    Like swimming in muddy water
    Treading slow until you drown
    It's like trying to stop a clock, Lord
    Like trying to stop a train
    It's like trying to build a fire in the rain

    Well, I keep asking 'bout your love, dear
    But you won't ever say
    I've been looking for direction
    But you won't show the way
    Well, it's like trying to build a fire in the rain

    It's like trying to build a fire
    When the rain is pouring down
    Like swimming in muddy water
    Treading slow until you drown
    It's like trying to stop a clock, Lord
    Like trying to stop a train
    It's like trying to build a fire in the rain

    Well, it's like trying to build a fire in the rain

    It's like trying to build a fire
    When the rain is pouring down
    Like swimming in muddy water
    Treading slow until you drown
    It's like trying to stop a clock, Lord
    Like trying to stop a train
    It's like trying to build a fire in the rain

     

     

  7. Burnin' Bridges (On A Rocky Road)

    I talked to an old man, he had a Bible in a sack
    He looked like Mother Nature had a heart attack
    He said, "I used to have money and visions too
    But love and life has changed my points of view"

    He said, "Things have changed for the better
    Things have changed in the weather 
    Well, you got to go down easy when you go
    So don't go burnin' bridges on a rocky road"

    Now Johnny left Sally, but she didn't cry
    She said Johnny taught the devil to lie
    Now she stands alone and does her own thing
    She don't miss him and she sure don't miss the pain

    He said, "Things have changed for the better
    Things have changed in the weather
    Well, you got to go down easy when you go
    So don't go burnin' bridges on a rocky road"

    Don't go burnin' bridges on a rocky road
    It seems it all hinges on how we carry your load

    Now Bonnie, she played in a rock n' roll band
    But her hour glass was out of sand
    She sang one last song, yeah and this one took
    Now we all stand in line and we pay to take a look

    He said, "Things have changed for the better
    Things have changed in the weather
    Well, you got to go down easy when you go
    So don't go burnin' bridges on a rocky road"

    So don't go burnin' bridges on a rocky road
    You just don't go burnin' bridges on a rocky road

     

     

  8. Sometimes A Hero

    The world's full of questions
    You thought I had the answers for
    I see you look at the world
    With eyes I had before

    You see in me something
    I never found
    'Til I found you by my side
    Now I never want to let you down 

    But sometimes a hero
    Seems awfully far from home
    But even a hero
    Can't all ways stop the cold wind when it blows

    But If you hold tight, the long night
    Will soon be tomorrow
    And you'll find me when you need
    Sometimes a hero

    Without the wind
    There would be no sails
    And If not for you
    There would be no hero in me

    There are times I have shined
    And there are times that I fail
    Sometimes a hero he'll ride off
    But he'll be back again another day

    But sometimes a hero
    Seems awfully far from home
    But even a hero
    Can't all ways stop the cold wind when it blows

    But If you hold tight, the long night
    Will soon be tomorrow
    And you'll find me when you need
    Sometimes a hero

    But sometimes a hero
    Seems awfully far from home
    But even a hero
    Can't all ways stop the cold wind when it blows

    But If you hold tight, the long night
    Will soon be tomorrow
    And you'll find me when you need
    Sometimes a hero

     

  9. Ain't That Always The Way

    Jeany loved Charlie with all of her might
    But she missed the boy bad when he was working all night
    Every day was the same but she wanted more
    So Jeany took to leaving out of every door saying

    Don't always know where you're goin'
    May not leave you with a whole lot to say, yeah, yeah
    Sometimes the wheels just start rollin'
    But baby, ain't that always the way

    Oh baby, ain't that always the way
    Reverend Jim was a preaching one night
    Folks didn't know that those streets made of gold
    He was a layin' his hands a just a little too tight
    Jim headed down the road singing
    We're paved with their money

    Tommy practiced hard just to play the guitar

    Don't always know where you're goin'
    May not leave you with a whole lot to say, yeah, yeah
    Sometimes the wheels just start rollin'
    But baby, ain't that always the way

    Gonna make a million dollars, gonna be a big star
    He fell In love with Betty and that all changed
    He's happy playin' his guitar out on the front porch swing singing

    Don't always know where you're goin'
    May not leave you with a whole lot to say, yeah, yeah
    Sometimes the wheels just start rollin'
    But baby, ain't that always the way

     

     

  10. When Twist Comes To Shout

    Movin' like a fast train callin' it the wild thang
    Hopin' that you don't say well, I've been denied
    Lordy I've been denied your fever is high
    Your tossin' about but it ain't love till twist comes to shout

    When twist comes to shout

    When twist comes to shout

    Dancin' with a new shoe you think you got the swine flu
    A hopin' that it ain't true well I'll testify
    Lordy I'll testify gotta make you see
    What you've been doin' without
    Cause it ain't love 'til twist comes to shout

    When twist comes to shout

     

  11. The Walk

    Down our long dusty driveway
    I didn't want to go
    But I set out with tears
    In my eyes wonderin'

    An' Daddy took me by the hand
    Looked down at the school bus
    And his little man and said
    "Don't worry, boy, it will be all right"

    'Cause I took this walk your walkin' now
    Boy, I've been in your shoes
    Well, you can't hold back the hands of time
    It's just somethin' you've got to do

    So dry your eyes, I understand
    Just what you're goin' through
    'Cause I took this same walk with my old man
    Boy, I've been in your shoes

    Down our long dusty driveway
    I set my mind to go
    Well, I was eighteen and wild
    And free and wonderin`

    An' Daddy took me by the hand
    Look out at the world
    And his grown man and said
    "Don't worry, boy, it will be all right"

    'Cause I took this walk your walkin' now
    Boy, I've been in your shoes
    Well, you can't hold back the hands of time
    It's just somethin' you've got to do

    So dry your eyes, I understand
    Just what you're goin' through
    'Cause I took this same walk with my old man
    Boy, I've been in your shoes

    Down our long dusty driveway
    This time we both would go
    Well, he had grown old and gray
    And his mind was a wanderin'

    An' Daddy took me by the hand
    Said, I know where we're goin'
    And I understand
    Don't worry, boy, it'll be alright

    'Cause I took this walk your walkin' now
    Boy, I've been in your shoes
    Well, you can't hold back the hands of time
    It's just somethin' you've got to do

    So dry your eyes, I understand
    Just what you're goin' through
    'Cause I took this same walk with my old man
    Boy, I've been in your shoes

    'Yes, I took this walk you're walkin' now
    Boy, I've been in your shoes
