Born to Boogie

length: 2:44
producer: Barry Beckett and Jim Ed Norman
Well my momma met my daddy down in Alabama They tied the knot so here I am.
Born on the bayou on the Texas Line Loved Louisanana and raised on Jabalaya.
Now before I could walk I had a guitar in my hand by the time I could talk I had my own band,
went on the road when I was eight years old when I turned fifteen I was stealing the show.
Money to burn and the girls were pretty it didn't take me long to learn that I was born to boogie.

When I was eighteen I went to Hollywood I met Elvis, Marilyn and Johnny B. Goode,
Got my guitar painted in the California sun a red caddilac having to much fun.
Now we were playing them halls and jammin' then until they moved me on over to M.G.M.
They said this is the boy we've been telling you about, he lit a cigar and stuck his hand out.
He said son have we got a deal for you gonna make you a star give you fifty thousand too.
I told him my Momma didn't raise no fool.
I'll take your money, I'll make you a movie But I can tell ya' right now I am born to boogie.

Well my name is Bocephus I drink whiskey by the gallon and I never back down and I love a good challenge
what I do now is what I did then I like to get down with all my rowdy friends.
Now I can be sweet and I can be mean I still got my hat and I still wear my jeans
My shades are chromo my guitar is steal if you think I won't then believe me I will
Get down on you baby because I ain't no rookie I was put here to party and I was born to boogie

Honky Tonk Women

length: 3:05
writer: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger
I met a gin soaked, bar-room queen in Memphis
I tried to take her upstairs for a ride
I had to heave her right across my shoulder
I just don't seem to drink you off my mind

Honky tonk, honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

Strollin' on the boulevards of Paris
As naked as the day that I will die

The sailors, they're so charming there in Paris
They just don't seem to sail you off my mind

It's a honky tonk, honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

Honky tonk, honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

Honky tonk, honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

length: 3:39
I got a little change in my pocket going jingle lingle ling
Want to call you on the telephone baby I give you a ring
But each time we talk I get the same old thing
Always no huggin no kissin until I get a wedding ring
My honey my baby don't put my love upon no shelf
She said don't give no lines and keep your hands to yourself

Cruel baby baby baby why you want to treat me this way
You know I'm still your lover boy I still feel the same way
That's when she told me a story 'bout free milk and a cow
And she said no huggin no kissin until I get a wedding vow
My honey my baby don't put my love upon no shelf
She said don't hand me no lines and keep your hands to yourself

You see I wanted her real bad and I was about to give in
That's when she started talkin' true love started talkin' about sin
I said honey I'll live with you for the rest of my life
She said no huggin no kissin until you make me your wife
My honey my baby don't put my love on no shelf
She don't hand me no lines and keep your hands to yourself.

Buck Naked

length: 3:20
I got a rock in my shoe
my jeans are cuttin me in two
My underwears too tight
my clothes don't ever fit right
My collars so tight
it's poppin my viens
we walk around
in constant pain

When I get home from work
I usually start with my shirt
I leave a trail behind
when I undress I unwind
I like to let it all hang out
hey don't you know what I'm talkin about

It feels so good to get
buck naked, that aint no sin
buck naked, whear my skinny skin skin
buck naked in my birthday suit
buck naked an I don't give a hoot
buck naked like a centure of old
buck naked is the way to go

I joined a nudist colony
they make me green with envy
they spend no money on clothes
they've got their own dress code
they walk around au natural
no more expensive dry cleanin bills

they just like to get
buck naked, swimmin on the beach
buck naked they're so squeaky clean
buck naked in their birthday suits
buck naked now aint they cute
buck naked watch the sun shile she sets
buck naked what ya sees what ya get

My girl says you dont't know how it feels
to walk around in pantyhose and hiheels
you oughta try to wear a bra all day
you don't know the price a gurls gotta pay
we wear our clothes so tight we can't move
she said you don't know what a woman goes thru

It feels so good to get
buck naked, like Adam and Eve
buck naked, like a monkey in the trees
buck naked like Tarzan and Jane
Buck naked no more high fashioned pain
buck naked like a centerfold
buck naked is the way to go

Heaven Can't Be Found

length: 3:14
I looked over at my pillow but your face wasn't there.
And I don't smell the perfume you used to wear.
And I don't see your blouse or jeans,
Or your pretty white cotton gown
And I've looked all over hell but heaven can't be found.

I looked on the bedside table but your jewelry was all gone.
And I just wish you'd call everytime I look at the phone.
I looked in our dressing mirror and I saw myself break down.
Oh I looked all over hell but heaven can't be found.

I called and looked in everyplace you used to hang around.
I've searched in every bar and club and honkey-tonk in town.
And I don't know if I can go on without breaking down.
I've looked all over hell but heaven can't be found.

And I don't know if I can go on without breaking down.
Oh, I've looked all over hell but my heaven can't be found.

Thanks a Lot

length: 2:55
Thanks, thanks a lot, I've got a broken heart, that's all I got.
You made me cry, and I cried a lot.
I just wanted your love, baby thanks a lot.
You told my friends as I was passin' by,
That you're not sorry that you made me cry.
You said I deserved everything that I got,
Well if that's how you feel, honey thanks a lot.
Yeah thanks, thanks a lot,

I've got a broken heart, that's all I got.
You made me cry, and I cried a lot.
I just wanted your love, so baby thanks a lot.
You ordered a fool, and I played the part,
Now all I've got is a broken heart.
We loved a little and you laughed a lot,
And then you were gone. honey thanks a lot.
Thanks, thanks a lot, I've got a broken heart, that's all I got.
You made me cry, and I cried a lot.
I just wanted your love, honey thanks a lot.
I just wanted your love, baby thanks a lot.
Oh thanks loads honey.

What It Boils Down To

length: 3:17
Baby we've been together, now for quite a while.
We've been around enough to know that we like each others style.
You got looks and smarts and all the right parts, to really turn me on.
We act like a couple of high school kids talkin' hot stuff on the phone.
We don't put no pressure on each other,
right there is the key, and the fire is hot
'cause baby we've got up a real good head of steam.
What it boils down to, is honey I love you.
When it's said and done, baby you're the one.
When it's cut and dried, I want you by my side.
What it boils down to, is the feelin' between me and you.
When a man loves a woman, it's gotta be no holes barred,
she makes him uncomfortable, oh he'll know in his heart.
He wants someone to share his troubles with, and someone to talk to.
Now you either get along or you don't, that's what it all boils down to.
No I don't need a harem or a chambermaid you see
'cause my girl's nice she's sugar and spice,
but she'll belly dance with me.
What it boils down to, is honey I love you.
When it's said and done, baby you're the one.
When it's cut and dried, I want you by my side.
What it boils down to, is the feelin' between me and you,
That's what it boils down to, baby I got the hots for you.
That's what it boils down to.

Shadow Face

length: 4:22
Shadow face. A little boy out on the stage.
Oh his daddy sings and plays 'em another song.
Shadow face. Now his daddy's gone away,
and his mother says, son you must carry on.
Shadow face, you're much too young to take his place.
You'll be walkin' in his shadow for so long, for so long.
Shadow face, Oh they say you're of his (grace)??,
with your hair and beard and singin' strange new songs.

Shadow face, son you and your friends better slow down the pace,
or you're gonna burn yourselves out before long.
Who ever told you, what you could and could not do.
Oh you get so tired of bein' told you're wrong,
but some of my friends are gone.
Better days, hear your songs on the hit parade,
now they tell you we were behind you all the way. Yeah.
Shadow face, boy don't you let it all go to waste,
you've seen so many fall who thought they had it made.
Shadow face, you're much happier these days,
does a smile really look so out of place,
here on shadow face, right here on shadow face.
