  1. Let Me Ride 6:00 Lyrics

    I’ve been on the road now for a day and a night
    I’ve been lonesome and hungry for miles
    I’ve seen how you people been lookin your lies
    I’m gonna kill y’all with your own smiles
    But I wish that y’all could get a look at the news
    And see what the man’s puttin down
    Well I gotta hold a one yesterday night
    And they threw me outta this town, oh yeah

    Well it’s gonna be awhile before I get home
    But when I do that’s the end of my roamin
    Cause I’ve been gone a lifetime and I can’t believe
    That the people I trust still can deceive

    By the time I get back here things have to change
    Cause if they don’t there’s gonna be alot of strange
    Lookin people marchin round, clappin their hands
    And they won’t stop till everyone understands

    Oh yeah
    Let me ride, let me ride
    Let me ride now, let me ride now, yeah

    Livin’s just like sleepin
    Why is life not like a dream
    Now the dawn is weepin
    Another sunlight sees
    Oh I’ve been here too long now
    I got to go outside
    Ya people gotta let me ride

    Let me ride, ride, ride
    I got to feel free inside (4x)

    (solo)

    Ya people gotta let me ride
    Let me ride, ride, ride
    I gotta feel free inside (4x)

  2. How the Story Goes 3:33 Lyrics

    Telephone girl talkin to her mother’s voice
    Yet she knows these days will soon be gone
    Cadillac crews take the band away tonight
    Ain’t it funny how the story goes
    It’s a dream I had playin music in my band
    It’s a dream I had to be happy with the woman I love
    Well if dreams came true
    And they definitely do
    For sayin I’m a fool
    Ain’t it funny how the story goes
    Ain’t it funny how the story goes

    Hollywood queen lookin from her lacy tomb
    It’s strange to know that I can laugh at you
    Flash guitar instead of an architects tool
    Ain’t it funny how the story goes
    It’s a dream I had playin music in a band
    It’s a dream I had to be happy with the woman I love
    But if dreams came true
    And they definitely do
    For sayin I’m a fool
    Ain’t it funny how the story goes
    Ain’t it funny how the story goes
    (solo)
    (chorus)

  3. Little Queenie 6:39 Lyrics

    I got lumps in my throat
    When I saw her comin down the aisle
    I got the wiggles in my knees
    When she looked at me and sweetly smiled
    Well there she is again
    Standin over by the record machine
    Well she looks like a model
    On the cover of a magazine
    But she’s too cute
    To be a minute over seventeen

    Meanwhile I was thinkin

    Well if she’s in the mood
    No need to break it
    I got the chance and I oughta take it
    If she can dance we can make it
    C’mon queenie let’s shake it

    I said go, go, go, little queenie
    I said go, go, go, little queenie
    I said go, go, go, little queenie

    Won’t someone tell me
    Who’s the queen standin over by the record machine
    Well she looks like a model
    On the cover of a magazine
    But she’s too cute
    To be a minute over seventeen

    I said go, go, go, little queenie (3x)
    (solo)

    Meanwhile, I was still thinkin, hmmmm,
    Well if it’s a slow one
    We’ll omit it
    If it’s a rocker, then we’ll get it
    If it’s a good one, she’ll admit it
    C’mon queenie, let’s get with it

    I said go, go, go, little queenie (3x)
    (solo)
    I said go, go, go, little queenie (3x)

  4. Being Kind (Can Hurt Someone Sometimes) 6:02 Lyrics

    Please don’t worry now about the mornin’
    When it’s time we’ll sip our wine and sleep
    Woah, but I’ve been known
    To love more than one person
    Woah, and I’ve been shown
    That bein’ kind can hurt someone sometimes

    Listen to my words now look no further
    What you’ve seen is what I mean no more
    Woah, but I’ve been known
    To love more than one person
    Woah, and I’ve been shown
    That bein’ kind can hurt someone sometimes

    Don’t dream of answers cause you know I’ve none to give
    They burn like cancers they just won’t let you live

    I’ve been known
    To love more than one person
    And I’ve been shown
    That bein’ kind can hurt someone sometimes

    Don’t dream of answers cause you know I’ve none to give
    We move like dancers steppin on each other to live
    And pouncin hard
    Like animals in the yard
    And there’s no healin, lookin, feelin
    There’s no denyin that bein kind can hurt
    Someone sometimes
    Oh, there’s no denyin, woah Lord there’s no denyin
    That bein’ kind can hurt someone sometimes

  5. Music Man 4:38 Lyrics

    Recently I’ve been thinkin about what I am and where my priorities lie
    Gettin it together on some future plan, decidin what I need to get by
    I tried workin and schoolin but there just not my plan, oh no
    Can’t ya see I’ll always be a music man

    Well I could be pickin bluegrass or singin the blues, it doesn’t really matter to me
    As long as I’m playin the music I just can’t lose, and noones gonna tell me differently
    Cause all I really care about is sittin right here in my hands, oh yeah
    Can’t ya see I’ll always be a music man

    Well my momma sits and worries about me for days
    Even though she really likes the way the boy plays
    My daddy tells her I’m just goin through a phase
    But that’s just what he always says
    I hear what they’re sayin but I take it with a grain of sand, oh yeah
    Can’t ya see I’ll always be a music man
    (repeat) yeah

    (solo)

    Well my momma sits and worries about me for days
    Even though she really likes the way the boy plays
    My daddy tells her that I’m goin through a phase
    But that’s just what he always says
    I hear what they’re sayin but I take it with a grain of sand, oh yeah
    Can’t ya see I’ll always be a music man

    Well I’ve told you my story now here’s what I’ve found
    To be happy you need only be real
    So don’t let anyone try to turn your head around
    Just remember you are what you feel
    You see all of my life people been tryin to tell me what I am, oh yeah
    Can’t ya see I’ll always be a music man, oh yeah
    (repeat)

  6. Like You Do 5:57 Lyrics

    Well I’ve seen women who cross their legs
    Before they sit down to the table
    And I’ve seen women who look to the sky
    Screamin Lord I believe in the Bible
    And I’ve seen hookers dancin through Times Square
    With their heads held up so high
    But I’ve never seen a woman
    Who makes me feel
    Woah, like you do

    Well I’ve seen couples holdin hands
    With that glazy look in their eyes
    And I’ve seen lovers rollin round in bed
    Screamin as if they’re gonna die
    And I’ve seen lovers holdin hands
    And then laughin when their back is turned
    But I’ve never seen a woman
    Who makes me feel
    Woah, like you do

    (solo)

    Well I’ve seen women who cross their legs
    Before they sit down to the table
    And I’ve seen women who look to the sky
    Screamin Lord I Believe in the Bible
    And I’ve seen hookers dancin through Times Square
    With their heads held up so high
    But I’ve never seen a woman
    Who makes me feel
    No I’ve never seen a woman
    Who can make me feel
    Like you do

  7. Flash Tan Queen 4:23 Lyrics

    Diamond studded man
    Ruby coated plan
    Makes my heart ache to think that money could take you from me

    Midnight dream
    Almost made me scream
    Nightmares came now that money took you from me

    (Chorus)
    Well, you’re a flash tan queen from the southern shores
    Like a rotten peach layin’ in the Georgia sun
    Well, you can lay all day, get your back real brown
    But a dollar can take away your frown

    Fat rat queen
    Golden limousines
    All of these things just come between you and me, yeah

    Lacy white gown
    Just makes me wanna frown
    My heart aches now that money’s taken you from me

    (Chorus)

    (solo)

    Shakes me apart
    Make believe hall
    I’m feelin’ like a flower stuck on somebody’s wall

    Midnight dream
    Lord it made me scream
    My heart aches now that money took you from me

    (Chorus)

    Oh, you’re a flash tan queen
