Good Friends, Good Whiskey, Good Lovin'

length: 3:04

One thing's for sure
We're all just passin' through
No we're not gonna live forever
Not me and you
But Lord, I've had a good time
Yes Lord I've had a good good life
I've just got one thing to say
This is all that matters anyway
Good friends, good whiskey, and good lovin'
I want to thank you Lord For givin' me all of them To get me by
Take my money, take my rings
I'd trade it all for just three things
Good friends, my good whiskey, and good lovin'
Don't you know I'm just like lotsa folks in your town
I laugh and I love and I cuss life's ups and downs
There really ain't much difference you see
Betweeen all of you and me
Yes I like cold beer and hot lips
and a ride in the country.
And I like good friends
And I like good whiskey
And I like good lovin'
I want to thank you Lord For givin' me all of them To get me by
Take my money, take my rings
I'd trade it all for just three things
My good friends, my good whiskey, and good lovin'
Take my money, take my rings
I'd trade it all for just three things
My good friends, my good whiskey, and yo good lovin'

U.S.A. Today

length: 3:19
writer: Johnny MacRae, Ron Hellard

There's homeless on the streets of every city
Big city crime in every little town
There's people makin' money off of Jesus
And taxes draggin' everybody down

There's politicians, kinda stretchin' the truth
And farmers are gettin', pulled up by their roots
And pushers tellin' little kids, high's the only way (Bull)
Welcome, to the U.S.A. today

It's true we've got our problems, Lord knows we make mistakes
And every time we solve one, ten others take its place
But you won't see those refugees, headin' the other way
Welcome, to the U.S.A. today

But there's a million happy homes for every homeless
And opportunity still knocks on every door
Our younger generation's really shinin'
Much brighter than they've ever shined before

We've got the right, to vote our leaders in
Yeah, and we've got the right, to vote them out again
And we're all free, to speak our mind, and not get locked away
Welcome, to the U.S.A. today

It's true we've got our problems, Lord knows we make mistakes
And every time we solve one, ten others take its place
But you won't see those refugees, headin' the other way
Welcome, to the U.S.A. today

Oh, welcome to, the U.S.A. today

Hot to Trot

length: 2:28

Some girls are cute, some girls are not
When it comes to you, I'm hot to trot
I've got a feeling tonight we will cross that finish line
I'm hot to trot, baby let's ride

You make me dance like a Kentucky colt
When I'm with you girl I really feel my oats
I will be your Tennessee stud if you give me your sweet love
I'm hot to trot, baby let's ride

Why don't we ride off in the sunset
Just like ol' Roy Rodgers did
You can be my Lily Langtree and I'll be your Billy The Kid
I'm hot to trot, I'm raring to go
Take a ride along, I'm ready to show
I gotta feeling that tonight we will cross that finish line
I'm hot to trot, baby let's ride

Why don't we ride off in the sunset
Just like ol' Gene Autry did
You can be my Lily Langtree and I'll be your Billy The Kid
I'm hot to trot, I'm raring to go
Take a ride along, let's rodeo
Hey that all you can't denie that we will cross that finish line
I'm hot to trot, baby let's ride
Baby let's ride

I Mean I Love You

length: 2:58

Don't doubt me every chance you get
Don't give me that ol' cold shoulder
Honey I don't like it
Baby you got a stubborn streak
Baby I do too
It's not your pretty little head it's your heart I'm talking to

I try to tell you some sweet things you try to turn it around
You think I'm talking about some other girl in some other town
Well if you'd listen to me you might like what you hear
Because what I'm about to sing I wanna make this perfectly clear

I mean I mean I mean I mean I love you
I dream I dream I dream I dream all night of you
I'll kiss I'll kiss I'll kissity kiss kiss kiss all over you
I do yes I do 'deed I do I sho do love you

Now it did take a while for our love to grow
I'd tell you "get out of here" and you call me ol' so and so
Honey I've been hurt before and you have too
So we were just scared to death to let our feelings come through
Once you loosened up and took the chains off our hearts
Now I don't ever ever ever want to be apart

'Cuz I mean I mean I mean I mean I love you
I dream I dream I dream I dream all night of you
I'll kiss I'll kiss I'll kissity kiss kiss kiss all over you
I do yes I do indeed I do I sho do love you

Almost Persuaded

length: 3:45
Last night all alone in a barroom
Met a girl with a drink in her hand.
She had ruby red lips, coal black hair
And eyes that would tempt any man.
Then she came and sat down at my table,
And as she placed her soft hands in mine,
I found myself wanting to kiss her
For temptation was flowing like wine.

And I was almost persuaded to strip myself of my pride.
Almost persuaded to push my conscience aside.
Then we danced and she whispered, "I need you!"
"Take me away from here and be my man."
Then I looked into her eyes and I saw it:

The reflection of my wedding band.
And I was almost persuaded to let strange lips lead me on.
Almost persuaded but your sweet love made me stop and go home.

Last night all alone in a barroom
Met a guy with a drink in his hand.
He had bay blue eyes, coal black hair
And a smile that a girl understands.
Then he came and sat down at my table,
And as he placed his hands over mine,
I found my self wanting to kiss him
For temptation was flowing like wine.

And I was almost persuaded to strip myself of my pride.
Almost persuaded to push my conscience aside.
Then we danced and he whispered, "I need you!"
"Let me take you away and be your man."
Then I looked into his eyes and I saw it:

The reflection of my wedding band.
And I was almost persuaded to let strange lips lead me on.
Almost persuaded but your sweet love made me stop and go home.

Stoned at the Jukebox

length: 2:59
Oh, it helps to keep a worried mind occupied.
I do alright till dark of night surrounds me,
And then I think of her and then I cry.

Lord, there’s a cold heart gone and I’m stoned at the jukebox,
Playin’ I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you.
Cause that’s the kind of songs it takes to get all this ole hurtin’ out,
Lord, I love that hurtin’ music, cause I am hurtin’, too.

Lord knows, I been runnin’ up and down this ol’ interstate 65,
I loved in Nashville, Tennessee high falutin’ woman I tried,
Now I’m busted stone flat down in Springhill.
I got nothin’ but time and the bottles to kill,
Well, I never thought I could ever feel like that.

But there’s a cold heart gone and I’m stoned at the jukebox,
Playin’ I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you.
Cause that’s the kind of songs it takes to get all that ole hurtin’ out,
And Lord, I love that hurtin’ music, cause I am hurtin’, too.


Ain't Nobody's Business

length: 2:41
One day I have ham and bacon
And the next day it ain't nothing shakin'
And it ain't noboady's business if I do what I do

Me and my babe oh we fuss and fight
And the next minute, yea everything is alright
And it ain't nobody's business what we do
(Cause that's all private stuff)

One day I think I'm going crazy
And the next day I'm laid back and lazy
And it ain't nobody's business if I do

One day I might take a notion
To go right down and jump in the ocean
And it ain't nobody's business if I do

Lone Wolf

length: 3:52
There ain't no man gonna invade my territory
There ain't nobody out there gonna mess with me
Because I'm big and hard and battlescarred
And getting long in the tooth desperate and hungry
And got nothing to loose.

Yeah I'm a lone wolf I've been chased
And I've been bit. Yeah I'm a lone wolf.
They like to shoot at me but they miss.
Yeah I'm a lone wolf and I ain't never been trapped,
And God help the people that think they got me cornered at last.

I've been hunting.I've been tracking.
I've been running since I was 3, born in Louisiana Swamp,
Moved with the pack to Tennessee.
Raised by black and white dogs to some country, some rock-n-roll.
They said now boy your gonna have to quit your houlling so.
Staying up all night and chasing Lassies by the moon
Laying up all day on the porch playing guitar tunes.

Yeah I'm a lone wolf and I no longer run with the pack.
Yeah I am a lone wolf.I don't ever look back.
Hey I am a lone wolf out here on the prowl
And most of us have been penned up but I'm still running wild.

Hey I'm a lone wolf.I've been chased and I've been bit.
Yeah I am a lone wolf this ole dog knows all the tricks.
Hey I'm a lone wolf. Still hungry and I'm on the prowl,
And most of us have been penned up but
Bocephus is running wild.
You better watch out because I'm hungry and I'm on the prowl.
