Tracklist

Dixie on My Mind

length: 2:38

All the stations up here don't sign off with Dixie,
The way they did in sweet home Alabama,
The people here don't sip Jack Daniels whiskey,
The way they do in that Tennessee mountain land.

I've always heard lots about the big apple,
So I thought I'd come up here and see,
But all I've seen so far is one big hassle,
Wish I was camped out on the Okachovee.

If this is the promised land,
I've had all I can stand,
And I'm headed back below that Dixie line
Well I just don't fit in,
And I'll never come back again,
I'm busted here with Dixie on my mind,
Oh, I'm stuck up here and I got Dixie on my mind.

These people never smile or say a word,
They're all too busy tryin' to make an extra dime,
Oh I'd love to haul 'em all down around Spartanburg,
And show 'em how to raise hell in Carolina.

Oh, the things you know that I miss most of all,
Is the freedom of the rivers and the pines,
They don't do much huntin' and fishin' up here ya know,
But I have met a few squirrels and one porcupine.

If this is the promised land,
I've had all I can stand,
Wish I was down in Houston town tonight,
Well I just don't fit in,
And I'll never come back again,
I'm busted here with Dixie on my mind,
Oh, I'm stuck up here and I got Dixie on my mind.


Texas Women

length: 2:29

Chorus:
I'm a country plowboy, not an urban cowboy, and I dont ride bulls but I have fought some men, drive a pickup truck, trust in God and luck and I live to love Texas women.


I thought I'd seen beauty in faraway places, till I looked upon those Houston faces, spent Hollywood nights up in Beverly Hills, but they werent nothin like one night down in BROWNSVILLE

Repeat Chorus

I'm a pretty fair judge of the opposite sex, and I aint seen nothin that will touch em' yet, they may be from Waco or out in Lampassas, but one thing about it they all come from Texas.

Repeat Chorus

I'm an Oiler fan not a soccer man, and my arms are red and so is my blood, and they make it boil with that soft Texas drawl and I love em all, Texas women.




You Can't Find Many Kissers

length: 2:37

Give a Damn

length: 2:35

Ain't Much More

length: 2:31

Ramblin' Man

length: 3:37
Til I hear an old train rollindown the line
Then I hurry strai-aight home and pack
And if I didn抰 go, I believe I抎 blow my stack
I love you ba-aby, but you gotta understand
When the lord made me
He made a ramblin man.

Some folks might sa-ay that I抦 no good
That I wouldn抰 settle down if I could
But when that open ro-oad starts to callinme
There抯 somethino抏r the hill that I gotta see
Sometimes it抯 har-rd but you gotta understand
When the lord made me, he made a ra-amblinman.

I love to see the tow-owns a-passinby
And to ride these rails 抧eath god抯 blue sky
Let me travel this la-and from the mountains to the sea
抍ause that抯 the life I believe he meant for me
And when I抦 go-one and at my grave you stand
Just say God called home your ra-amblinman.





I Got a Right to Be Wrong

length: 3:09

Footlights

length: 3:55

Tennessee River

length: 3:07
I was born across the river in the mountains where I call home.
Lord, times were good there. Don't know why I ever roamed.

[Chorus]
Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man, we get together anytime we can.
Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man, we play together in Mother Nature's
Band.

Me and my woman's done made our plans on the Tennessee River,
Walkin' hand in hand.
Gonna raise a family,
Lord settle down where peace and love can still be found.

[Chorus]

Oh, Tennessee River.

[Chorus]

Oh, Tennessee River.

Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way

length: 3:06
composer: Waylon Jennings
lyricist: Waylon Jennings
Lord it's the same old tune, fiddle and guitar
Where do we take it from here?
Rhinestone suits and new shiny cars
It's been the same way for years
We need a change

Somebody told me, when I came to Nashville
Son you finally got it made
Old Hank made it here, and we're all sure that you will
But I don't think Hank done it this way
No, I don't think Hank done it this way

Ten years on the road, makin' one night stands
Speedin' my young life away
Tell me one more time just so's I'll understand
Are your sure Hank done it this way?
Did ol' Hank really do it this way?

Lord I've seen the world, with a five piece band
Looking at the back side of me
Singing my songs, and one of his now and then
But I don't think Hank done 'em this way
I don't think Hank done 'em this way.
Take it home.
