Rollin' (The Ballad of Big & Rich)

length: 4:51

Brother and sisters
We are here for one reason
And one reason alone
To share our love of music
I present to you
Country music without prejudice, hey

Country boys don't rock and roll
Yeah the record man told me so
Yeah you'll never get it on the radio
Why they trying to complicate
The simple music that we make
Oh cause if it moves my soul
I'm gonna keep on rollin', rollin'

Hey, just want to hear everybody say (rollin', rollin')
At the top of your lungs till the windows brake (rollin', rollin')
Say hey, hey, hey

I ain't gonna shut my mouth
Don't mind if I stand out in a crowd
Just want to live out loud
Well I know there's got to be
A few hundred million more like me
Just trying to keep it free, yeah

Hey, just want to hear everybody say (rollin', rollin')
At the top of your lungs till the windows brake (rollin', rollin')
Say hey, hey, hey

Charlie Pride was the man in black
Rock and roll use to be about Johnny Cash
Yeah what ya think about that
Well I'm a crazy son-of -a-(bad word)
But I know I'm gonna make it big and rich
Yeah I'm gonna let it rip

Hey, just want to hear everybody say (rollin', rollin')
At the top of your lungs till the windows brake (rollin', rollin')
Say hey, cowboy Troy

Dumb-diggity-dumb, diggity-diggity-dumb dig this
Slicker than the grease from a BBQ Briskit
Got more chunk than a fresh potato salad
You thought you had your answer

But your answer was invalid
Your looking at me crazy cause you think I'm loco
Yhe big black cowboy, with the crazy vocal
Todas las personas gritando arriva
Now you heard it, now I know you a believer

Esta cancion es para toda la gente
Es muy importante a usar su mente

So let go of all your preconcieved notions
Get up on your feet and put your body in motion
Cause back home we love to dance
We could be two-stepin', or ravin' to trance

And when the party is crunk, the girls back it up
We got the systems in the cars and the 20's on the trucks
Six foot four with a cowboy hat
I don't mess around, yo what's up with that

I'm cowboy troy, a Texas hick
And I'm rollin' with the brothers
Big and Rich

Go cowboy go cowboy go
Go cowboy go cowboy go

Hey, just want to hear everybody say (rollin', rollin')
At the top of your lungs till the windows brake (rollin', rollin')
Say hey, hey, hey

Hey, just want to hear everybody say (rollin', rollin')
At the top of your lungs till the windows brake (rollin', rollin')
Say hey, hey, hey

Wild West Show

length: 4:21
I'm feelin' like Tonto,
Ridin' a Pinto,
Tryin' to chase the Lone Ranger down.
I'm a little unravelled,
But I'm still in the saddle,
Cryin' your name out to the clouds,
Hey yaw, Hey yaw!

Why don't you meet me,
Back at the tepee?
We'll lay down by the camp fire.
There, in the dark night,
We'll smoke the peace pipe,
Forget about who's wrong or right.
Hey yaw, Hey yaw!

Yeah, it was a big showdown,
Oh yeah, we stood our ground.
Shot out the lights:
It got a little crazy.
I don't want to see us go,
The way of the buffalo:
Don't want to have another wild west show.
Hey yaw, Hey yaw!

Only forgiveness,
Will finally end this.
There won't be a witness if we both fall.
There's never a hero,
In a battle of egos.
There's never a winner of the quick draw.
Hey yaw, Hey yaw!

Yeah, it was a big showdown,
Oh yeah, we stood our ground.
Shot out the lights:
It got a little crazy.
Don't want to see us go,
The way of the buffalo:
Don't want to have another wild west show.
Hey yaw, Hey yaw!

Hey yaw, Hey yaw!

It's like a ghost town,
Without you around.
Why can't we just forget it,
Ride off in the sunset?

It was a big showdown,
Oh yeah, we stood our ground.
Shot out the lights:
It got a little crazy.
I don't want to see us go,
The way of the buffalo:
Don't want to have another wild west show.
Hey yaw, Hey yaw!

I'm feelin' like Tonto,
Ridin' a Pinto,
Tryin' to chase the Lone Ranger down.

Big Time

length: 3:57
My hair might be a little too long for your taste, my friend
My car might cost a little less than that suit you're wearing
I'm glad you've stumbled in here on your business trip
Before you close your tab remember I play for tips
Well I bet your wife is beautiful and you're a really big so-and-so
Well I'm not doing bad myself, hey friend don't you know

I play guitar and I sing my songs in the sunshine
Captain and Cokes and barroom jokes keep me feeling fine
And there's always a stage and a beautiful babe to squeeze my lime
In my simple way, guess you can say I'm living in the big time

I know I'll probably never make a million bucks
But savings accounts and the IRS never worry me much
I don't need that stuff 'cause
I've got friends like you
To but me drinks, have boats and planes that I can use
I know you're really living in that house up on the hill
So if you feel like giving, friend I've got a jar to fill

I play guitar and I sing my songs in the sunshine
Captain and Cokes and barroom jokes keep me feeling fine
And there's always a stage and a beautiful babe to squeeze my lime
In my simple way, guess you can say I'm living in the big time

I'm having the time of my life
No worries on my mind
Everything's just fine

Today is even better than yesterday
Everything is going my way
I'm living the big time

And there's always a stage and beautiful babe to squeeze my lime
In my simple way guess you could say
I'm living in the big time

Kick My Ass

length: 4:59
Well, I walked up to the bar,
I laid down my Platinum card,
Then I ordered 50 longnecks for my new friends
Well, the barmaid passed them out,
And before we chugged them down,
I held mine up and said, "Here's to us and them"
Well, this blonde slid up to me,
She said, "That was awful sweet!",
Then I saw her boyfriend, wide as he was tall
Well, he broke up our hug
With a six-foot-five-inch shove,
And I found myself slammed up against the wall.

Why does everybody want to kick my ***?
I'm just tryin' to have a little fun
For all the ones who can't
And just because I kiss the prettiest girls
And I drive my truck to fast
Why does everybody want to kick my ***?

Well, I've never been the type
To walk up and pick a fight--
I've always been the kind to get along
I throw parties all the time
And they're always on my dime,
We drink and dance and smoke until the dawn.
Well, my style of stress relief
Sometimes disturbs the peace,
The police show up to donuts in my yard
And while the Zeppelin's playin' loud,
They run off my party crowd
They cuff my wrists and throw me down so hard.

Why does everybody want to kick my ***?
I'm just tryin' to have a little fun
For all the ones who can't
And just because I kiss the prettiest girls
And I drive my truck to fast
Why does everybody want to kick my ***?

And just because I kiss the prettiest girls
And I drive my truck to fast
Why does everybody want
It seems like everybody wants
Why does everybody want to kick my ***?

Six Foot Town

length: 3:48
My brakes are on fire
From trying to slow down
I'm always burning my tires
And my horn is to loud
I catch people looking funny at me
When I step to the window and I toss a TV
Sometimes I get crazy and it makes a big scene
But when I hit 21 I wanna stand up and scream
I'm filthy rich with laughter, I'm too big for the room
You know from two stories up
A Zenith makes a big boom

It's hard to get around in a six foot town
When your ten feet tall everything is so small
I'm always bumping my head
I'm way to long for the bed
It's hard to get around
In a six foot town.

Some people live inside a tiny little box
Yheir preoccupied about mismatching their socks
I never been one to worry about much
I just wanna laugh and love
I just wanna live it up

It's hard to get around in a six foot town
When your ten feet tall everything is so small
I'm always bumping my head
I'm way to long for the bed
It's hard to get around
In a six foot town.

Sometimes I stumble just because of my size
But hey y'all that's alright
That's the way God made me
I am what I am
And I can't do nothing bout that

It's hard to get around in a six foot town
When your ten feet tall everything is so small
I'm always bumping my head
I'm way to long for the bed
It's hard to get around

It's hard to get around in a six foot town
When your ten feet tall everything is so small
I'm always bumping my head
I'm way to long for the bed
It's hard to get around
In a six foot town

Holy Water

length: 4:17
Somewhere there's a stolen halo,
I used to watch her wear it well,
Everything would shine,
Wherever she would go,
But looking at her now you'd never tell

Someone ran away with her innocence,
A memory she can't get out of her head,
And I can only imagine,
What she's feelin' when she's prayin',
Kneelin' at the edge of her bed

And she says take me away,
Then take me farther,
Surround me now,
And hold, hold, hold me like holy water,
Holy water

She wants someone to call her angel,
Someone to put the light back in her eyes,
She's looking through the faces,
And unfamiliar places,
She needs someone to hear her when she cries

And she says take me away,
Then take me farther,
Surround me now,
And hold, hold, hold me like holy water

She just needs a little help,
To wash away the pain she's felt,
She wants to feel the healin' hands,
Of someone who understands

And she says take me away,
Then take me farther,
Surround me now,
And hold, hold, hold me

She says take me away,
Then take me farther,
Surround me now,
And hold, hold, hold me like holy water
Like holy water
Like holy water
Like holy water

Saved

length: 4:52
There was a time I tried to kill a man
Just for looking at me wrong
Anger so strong I couldn't stop myself
I was killing myself one shot at a time
Going insane from the pain
The women and the wine

But I finally hit bottom in an alley way
Hell wasn't but a breath away
So I hit my knee's in the street and begged god for mercy

Last night I told the devil where to go
You know heaven's got my soul
Ain't gonna listen to his lies no more
Last night I told the devil where to go

I could have saved myself a lot of hurting time
If I'd have just listened to my momma
Everytime she cried
Well I was way to lost in a sinner's haze
Burning up the days
Just another young man who had lost his way
Now it finally makes sense what the preacher said
When he said son you don't wanna wake up dead
And find yourself alone in the fires of hell

Yeah everybody
Last night I told the devil where to go
You know heaven's got my soul
Ain't gonna listen to his lies no more
Last night I told the devil where to go

Now when you hear that demon knocking at your door
You just tell him you dont want his kind round here no more
Cause if you wanna love if you wanna live
If you wanna be free you can't forget and forgive
You gotta kick him in the teeth and do exactly
Do exactly what I did

Yeah last night I told the devil where to go
You know heaven's got my soul
Ain't gonna listen to his lies no more
Last night I told the devil
Last night I told the devil
Last night I told the devil
Last night I told the devil
Last night I told the devil
I told the devil where to go

Real World

length: 5:06
There's a girl on channel 13
I know she's gonna fall in love with me
And I'm gonna win the lottery tomorrow
Or the next day
I drive a Mercedes Benz
I've got a whole boat load of friends
I'm gonna be on CMT someday

But in my real world
Things don't always turn out so good
Like you wish they would
And in my real world
I'm a little messed up and broke, don't you know

I got more money then George Strait
I throw benjies out the window all day
Just to see how far they fly, bye bye
I get more girls then the president
Mom and dad still pay the rent
And I throw parties all night long

But in my real world
Things don't always turn out so good
Like you wish they would
And in my real world
I'm a little messed up and broke, don't you know

But in my real world
Things don't always turn out so good
Like you wish they would
And in my real world
I'm a little messed up and broke, don't you know

But in my real world
Things don't always turn out so good
Like you wish they would
And in my real world
I'm a little messed up and broke, don't you know

Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)

length: 3:21
writer: Big Kenny, John Rich
[Intro]
DUM-DE-DE-DUM, DE-DE-DUM-DE-DE-DUM, DE-DAA-DAAAAA
DUM-DE-DE-DUM, DE-DE-DUM-DE-DE-DUM, DE-DAA-DAA-DAA-DAA-DAAAA!

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
An' this town ain't never gonna be the same.

[Chorus:]
Cause I saddle up my horse
and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls
They are so pretty
Riding up and down Broadway
on my old stud Leroy
And the girls say
Save a horse, ride a cowboy.
Everybody says
Save a horse, Ride a cowboy

Well I don't give a dang about nothing
I'm singing and Bling- Blanging
While the girls are drinking
Long necks down!
And I wouldn't trade ol' Leroy
or my Chevrolet for your Escalade
Or your freak parade
I'm the only John Wayne left in this town

And I saddle up my horse
and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls
They are so pretty
Riding up and down Broadway
on my old stud Leroy
And the girls say
Save a horse, ride a cowboy.
Everybody says
Save a horse, Ride a cowboy

[Spoken:]
I'm a thourough-bred
that's what she said
in the back of my truck bed
As I was gettin' buzzed on suds
Out on some back country road.
We where flying high
Fine as wine, having ourselves a big and rich time
And I was going, just about as far as she'd let me go.
But her evaluation
of my cowboy reputation
Had me begging for salvation
all night long
So I took her out giggin frogs
Introduced her to my old bird dog
And sang her every Wilie Nelson song I could think of

And we made love
And I saddled up my horse
and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls
They are so pretty
Riding up and down Broadway
on my old stud Leroy
And the girls say
Save a horse, ride a cowboy.
Everybody says
Save a horse, Ride a cowboy

What? What?
Save A Horse Ride A Cowboy
Everybody says
Save a Horse Ride a cowboy.

And all that I see

But if your anything like me
Well then I bet you really need

Deadwood Mountain

length: 5:11
I've been a rambler, all my life
Been a bet it all gambler
Yeah I let it all ride
Never been afraid of losin
Yeah there's been times I've lost it all
But it won't really matter
Someday when I'm gone

You can bury me on Deadwood Mountain
By my brother wild Bill and sister calamity Jane
Don't bring me no flowers
Just a six gun smokin
Put me eight feet down
When you bury me
Put me eight feet down
When you bury me

When your heart runs deeper
Then a ghost town gold mine
You just know your bound to find that motherload
You'll spend your last heartbeat chasing after rainbows
No there's no place you won't go
To win one more time

You can bury me on Deadwood Mountain
By my brother wild Bill and sister calamity Jane
Don't bring me no flowers
Just a six gun smokin
Put me eight feet down
When you bury me
Put me eight feet down
When you bury me

And cover me a little extra deep
Cause that's the only way
I'm gonna rest in peace

You can bury me on Deadwood Mountain
By my brother wild Bill and sister calamity Jane
Don't bring me no flowers
Just a six gun smokin
Put me eight feet down
When you bury me
Put me eight feet down
When you bury me
