I'm for Love

length: 2:57
producer: Jimmy Bowen
recording engineer: Hank Williams, Jr. and Jimmy Bowen

The union’s against the workers, Working against their will
The President’s against the Congress, The Senate is against the House
People are against politicians, And I’m against cats in my house

But I’m for love and I’m for happiness
And I’m for “if you don’t like it can’t you just let it pass.”
And I’m for turning off the news and turning down the lights
‘Cause I’m for nothing else but me and you tonight

The cities against the county, The county's against the state
The state is against the government, And the highways still ain’t paved
The banker’s against the farmer, The farmer’s against the wall,
Doctors against me smoking, And the devil's against us all

But I’m for love and I’m for happiness
And I’m for “if you don’t like it can’t you just let it pass.”
And I’m for turning off the tube and turning down the lights
‘Cause I’m for nothing else but me and you tonight

The cops are against the robbers, The laws are against the cops
Justice is against the system, And some people are blowing their tops
The horse is against the automobile, The bus is against the train
The train is against the jumbo jet, And I’m against fishing in the rain

But I’m for love I’m all for happiness
And I’m for “if you don’t like it can’t you just let it pass.”
And I’m for turning off the tube; turning down the lights
And I’m for nothing else but you and me tonight

Hey, I’m for love I’m all for happiness
And I’m for not looking for something to make us mad
I’m all for turning off the news and turning down the lights
And I’m for nothing else but you and me tonight



I Really Like Girls

length: 2:44

Well, well
I really, really, really, really, really, really like girls
Yeah, I really, really, really, really, really, really like girls
I like girls (3x)
I like the way that they giggle
When they walk up and ask you to dance
I like the way that they wiggle
Wrapped up in the skin tight pants
They got style
They got smiles
They drive me wild!
Yeah, I really, really, really, really, really, really like girls
Yes, I really, really, really, really, really, really like girls!
I like them small
I like 'em tall
I like 'em all!
Now it don't bother me
If a girl don't know how to cope
Because the things that they know
How to do can't be learned in a book!
They got smarts
They got hearts
They got my heart!
That's why I really, really, really, really, really, really like girls
Yeah, I really, really, really, really, really, really like girls!
I want 'em small
I want 'em tall
I want 'em all!
Every day in every way they're here to stay
They're really really neat
They're really sweet
They're real petite
I like girls!

The Nashville Scene

length: 2:57
The streets are paved with tourist and the record companies flourish,
Lord knows every singer wants to be the king.

But some of them couldn't take it and some good one's didn't make it.
That's the way it goes on The Nashville Scene.

Now there's a wino on the corner,
He was a well known guitar picker 'til he got burned out by the game.

Now he'll bum you for some whiskey
And tell you how it was back in '52 when he played for Hank.

And I'm watching the sun go down this evening
And soon it will wake this town that's made of dreams.

But before it does a new star will be shining
And that's the way it is on the Nashville scene.

From the outside its a castle,
From the inside its a prison its easy to live way beyond your means.

And its a long, long way to the top
And even further when you drop and I've been on both ends of the Nashville scene.

Ain't Misbehavin'

length: 4:36
lyricist: Andy Razaf
composer: Harry Brooks, Fats Waller
No one to talk with
All by myself
No one to walk with
But I'm happy on the shelf
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

I know for certain
The one I love
I'm through with flirtin'
It's just you I'm thinkin' of
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

Like Jack Horner
In the corner
Don't go nowhere
What do I care?
Your kisses are worth waitin' for
Believe me

I don't stay out late
Don't care to go
I'm home about eight
Just me and my radio
Ain't misbehavin'
I'm savin' my love for you

Something to Believe In

length: 4:10
There ain't too much chance for opportunity
In this town that I live in
And I don't know what I'm gonna do with me
And it's getting hard to contend
With the fact that I ain't going nowhere
If I don't get out of here
I need a change of luck and a pick-me-up
Something more than the bars and the beers

I need something to believe in
Something to look forward to
Something to believe in
Cause I got a bad case of the blues
Something to believe in
Something to make me feel right
Something to believe in
Is that asking too much out of life

Well I quit my job
And I'm leaving today
Cause two hundred a week, it don't make it
I got a ticket going to L.A.
And I'm hoping I can take it
Cause I got enough money for about a month before I'll be back on the bus
But I got faith in me and all new things I see
I just need a little good luck

Well I was getting down
Soon I'd have to leave town
And I was out walking the street
When I met a girl
By the burger world
And I was needing her company
By the way she was dressed
I knew what to expect
When we got to her motel room
Ah, but when she found out I came from her hometown
She starting crying and Lord I did too

I need something to believe in
Ah, baby something to look forward to
Ah, do you feel like I do
Something to believe in
She said please stay with me tonight
I want something to believe in
Just talk to me and hold me tight

She was just eighteen
And I couldn't believe
What had happen since she left home
I thought I had some pains
But it wasn't the same
As the hell she had known
So we packed our stuff
And we got on the bus
And now it's back to the same old grind
But if you could have seen
The way she looked at me
When she saw the city limit sign

We got something to believe in
Something to look forward to
Something to believe in
And I believe in me and you
Something to believe in
Holding each other tight
Something to believe in
That special something called being in love to get us by

Lawyers, Guns and Money

length: 3:12
writer: Warren Zevon
I went home with the waitress
the way I always do
How was I to know
she was with the
Russians too?

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
they'll get me out of this, hah!

I'm the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
between the rock
and a hard place
and I'm down on my luck
Yes I'm down on my luck
Well I'm down on my luck

I'm hiding in Honduras
I'm a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
the **** has hit the fan

All right
Send lawyers, guns and money
Huh!
Uh!
Send lawyers, guns and money
Uh!
Send lawyers, guns and money
Hyah!
Send lawyers, guns and money

Ooh!
Yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah!
Uh!

This Ain't Dallas

length: 2:45
This ain't Dallas and this ain't Dynasty.
This is a real-life two job working family.
And I ain't J.R. You ain't Suellen
We're just a man and a woman holding things together.

I work every day the sun comes up from eight until five.
I don't have a new Mercedes car or a chauffer to drive.
My wife ain't out shoppin' with a country club queen.
Cause she's workin' in the morning until she picks up the kids at three.

And this ain't Dallas and this ain't Dynasty.
This is a real-life two job working family.
And I ain't J.R. You ain't Suellen
We're just a man and a woman holding things together.

Now we all like to watch those shows and we all like to dream.
You know J.R. is making deals and Alexis is making steam.
Joan and Linda, Victoria and Morgan they're a sight to see.
My ole lady said, "I know what you're thinkin'"
I said "Now honey, don'tcha know all of that is on TV.

And this ain't Dallas, this ain't Dynasty.
This is makin' a livin' down in Tennessee.
And I ain't J.R. and you ain't Suellen.
Nah We're just man and woman holding things together.

No this ain't Dallas and this ain't Dynasty.
This is makin' a livin' down in Tennessee.
I ain't J.R. and you ain't Suellen.
Nah just man and woman holding this thing together.

And we're just a man and woman holding this thing together.








I've Been Around

length: 3:16
I used to sing songs that were hand-me-downs.
I've been called a hero,
I've been called a clown.
I've learned the old ways and the new ways now.

I've been around.
I can drop names that will knock ya down.
I've rock and rolled and I've fiddled around,
From Hollywood to the Nashville sound.

I've been around,
Climbed the highest mountain I found.
I went to the top and I fell back down.
And I know what I'm talking about,
'Cause I've been around.

I've been in love.
I've been down on my knees and prayed to God above.
"Why does so much pain go with so mich love?
Why is she still the one I'm dreaming of?"

Yeah, I've been around,
And the best two friends I've ever found
Are a woman's love and a guitar sound.
And I know what I'm talking about,
'Cause I've been around

Outlaw's Reward

length: 5:42
Ive always been labeled, As a rip roarin Hell Raisin kind
But you know here lately, I got other things on my mind
Like livin and dyin, and where Ill spend eternity
What kind of reward Jesus, Have you got out on me


Down here on earth, There's a big price on my head
But Ive got all my friends and my loved ones who'll cry when Im dead
And someday we'll all sing along, From the other side
Cause Ive heard that everyone's wanted,
Behind your heavenly gates in the sky

Chorus
What kind of reward Jesus, Have you got on me
I wonder how the words on my big, Wanted poster do read
And oh how Id love to be taken, into your custody
What kind of reward Jesus, Have you got on me
