They All Want to Go Wild (And I Want to Go Home)

length: 3:12

Well I have been riding hard and wet, you never met one quite like me.
No rules and no regrets but time is sneaking up you see.
Can't party all night like I use too. Can it be I'm slowin' down?
But friends are always here wanting to have a beer and take me right back out on the town.

Can you believe I feel out of place in a smoke filled honky-tonk?
Well I can put on my game face after all that used to be my home.
There's a girl sittin' in mylap. Now everybody is getting down
And I'm thinking about just exactly how in the world I'm going to get out.

They all want to go wild and I want to go home,
Cause I've been there done that living life to fast way to much carrying on.
I've walked on the wildside but they drag me along.
They all want to go wild and I want to go home.

Now if my wife walked in right now there would be some hell to pay
And I've payed to much before so here is all I got to say,
All the head and heart-ache ain't worth it not to mention alimony.
A man's got to be a fool sittin' here on a stool. She bring a whole lot back to me.

They all want to go wild and I want to go home.
Yeah, I've been there done that, living life to fast, way to much carrying on.
I've walked on the wildside but they drag me along.
They all want to go wild and I want to go home.
They all want to get wild and I just want to get home.

Yeah, I'll meet ya' later!

I'd Love to Knock the Hell Out of You

length: 3:08
Oh I'd love to knock the hell out of you
And if you keep messin around I'm going to
So if you're looking for trouble
Tell you what you do
Come over and get the shit knocked out of you

Now I have always been a peaceful man
But I get hostile if you screw up my plans
Do unto others as you like done to you
Believe me brother that is the golden rule

I've been through windows, doors, tv's, and chairs
But I never let go
And I pulled out most of their hair
Now I've mellowed a lot since then
So it takes two seconds
For me to knock the hell right out of you

Oh I'd love to knock the hell out of you
And if you keep pushin my button I'm going to
So if you're looking for trouble
Tell you what you do
Come over and get some shit knocked out of you

Now ladies and gentelmen
I know that David Allen Coe thought he had the Perfect Country and Western song
But you don't have to talk about
Drinking, or prison, or dying, or divorce
All you have to talk about is
The basic deep down human emotion
We all feel inside
That's why this is the
Perfect Country and Western Song
'cause I'd love to knock the hell right out of you

Yes sir right away!

Gibbonsville Gold

length: 5:02
My name is Bill Harlan. I'm a God fearin' man
From the lost rebel army, a Tennessee Calvary man
From Shilo to Nashville we made our last stand
When the battles were over, everythin' we had was gone with the wind

But I still had my family and a hope and a dream
And I heard of gold fever and the Rocky Mountain streams
So we took what we had and some gold diggin' gear
And we headed for a new life on the Northwest frontier

Montana Territory where the winters are cold
The lands full of game and the creeks are full of gold
Just west of the mountains is a town they call Gibbonsville
You can sure get gold fever, you can damn sure get killed
But I staked my claims, I was rarin' to go
I've made up my mind and I set out to find the Gibbonsville (D)gold

[Chorus:]
Oh, you find just a little, just enough to get by
Aww, you dig and you dig, and you start wonderin' why
There's a whole lot more down there, I don't have to be told
I've made up my mind and I'm gonna find that Gibbonsville gold

Every morning at daylight with a pick and a pan
Keep an eye out for the blackfeet. Keep a rifle near hand
Back shooters and grizzlies, better stay alert all the time
'Cause the only law here in this wild country is the gun and the knife

In the year of our Lord, eighteen sixty-nine
I lost my dear son to a cave-in at the mine
Yes I know he's gone please God rest his soul
So many have died trying to find this damned Gibbonsville gold

[Chorus:]
Yeah, you find just a little, just enough to get by
Aww, you dig and you dig, and you start wonderin' why
Then someone finds a nugget, just as big as your thumb
And we all go hard at it from sun until sun
Yeah I got to find it, that main mother load
I've made up my mind and I swear to find that Gibbonsville gold

There's a whole lot more down there, my share of that main mother load
I've made up my mind and I swear to find the Gibbonsville gold - [fade]

Where Would We Be Without Yankees

length: 3:21

Naked Women and Beer

length: 4:02
Lookin' for the girls to tumble
Up and down and all around the stage
But when the women start takin' their clothes off
Now we have got some strange laws
The most hypocritical thing around these days
Cause where I live in Tennessee
Why an auto parts calander
Hey thats pornography
But go right down the road, read what the sign says

Naked women and beer
We got it all in here
For your eyes and your ears
They show it all in the clear
Way up north and down south
Whoo, somebody shut my mouth

Now I ain't sayin' it's right
But I ain't sayin' it's wrong
But myself I enjoy the site
Of pretty girls dancin' to their songs
And it's been like that
Since way back when
From little Egypt to the Vegas strip
And when the music starts groovin'
And the girls start movin'
Ain't nothing gonna make 'em quit

Naked women and beer
We got it all in here
For your eyes and your ears
They show it all in the clear
Way up north and down south
Whoo, somebody shut my mouth

Nak-Nak-Nak-Nak-Nak-Naked women
Nak-Nak-Nak-Naked Women
Ice cold beer
It's all together in here
Naked women and beer

C'mon in out of the rain
We got the girls that will make you
Spend all your change
Naked women and beer


I Like It When It's Stormy

length: 3:47
And the rain came down.
That's the way the weather's been,
Since she come around.
No the sun don't shine,
'Round here much anytime.
Old cabin fever,
Make you lose your mind.

Cause she's gone out again,
With her fair weather friends.
This thing is turnin' to pain,
This storm will put out the flame.

I like it when it's stormy,
Cause it reminds me of my life.
When lightning strikes without warning,
Like it has in my world once or twice.
I hear the thunder rolling,
Feel the icy, cold, hail storms.
I like it when it's stormy,
But I don't like bein' alone.

I like it when its stormy,
Blowin' a hard rain.
Lookin' out my window,
Wishin' you was comin' back again.
Oh the things that we do,
On a day like this,
I'm gonna find me somebody new,
That likes to hear the thunder,
Feel the icy, cold, hail storms.
I like it when it's stormy,
But I don't like bein' alone.



Southern Thunder

length: 5:01
Well they call me southern thunder
Hear me long before I come
When my guitar starts to rumble
And my amplifier hums
Its so easy makin music
All about my family home
Yea they call me southern thunder
Proud to be thats how I'm known
Now my daddy he was somewhere
Between god and john wayne
And I realized long ago
I'm gonna sure do my own thing
So I sang about a country boy
That knew how to survive
And you know I'm tellin the truth
Cause I'm talkin bout my own life
Weeeelllll they call me southern thunder
Hear me long before I come
When my guitar wants to rumble
And my amplifier hums
Its easy makin music
All about my family home
Yea they call me southern thunder
Proud to be thats how I'm known
Yea they call me southern thunder
Hear me long before I come
When my guitar starts to rumble
And my amplifier hums
Theres a storm front building up
Down in the gulf of mexico
Yea they call me southern thunder
Know me everywhere I go

No don't put us done or talk about
Our sacred southern ways
Or southern thunder just might roll around
And rain out your parade

Its so easy makin music
All about my family home
Yea they call me southern thunder
Proud to be thats how I'm known
Theres a storm front builiding up
Down in the gulf of mexico
Seems to follow me everywhere I go
Yea they call me southern thunder
Proud to be don't you know

Hank Hill Is the King

length: 2:46
He's got the whitest legs this side of Montana
Never seen a situation he couldn't handle
No he'll never give in and he always helps his friends
But the world today sure looks strange to him
His trade mark his big square grey glasses
He wears t-shirts he don't care about high fashion
When he plays his guitar, in his mind he's a star
I'm telling you Hank Hill is the king

'Cause a hick is a hick (a hick is a hick)
And a dude is a dude (a dude is a dude)
A squirrel is a squirrel and a nut is a nut and I love his attitude
There's only one show that's worth a damn on the tube
Yeah he's my hero, a man I'd be proud to know
I'm telling you Hank Hill is the king

Now our kind of food is barbeque and steaks
We hate jet skis and beaches
We like fishing boats and lakes
Close as heaven I can go is watching hunting and fishing shows
And hanging out down at the hardware store
Now Texas that is one beautiful place
We don't have as many weirdos as New York and L.A,
We got our ideology and politics just right you see
He's our only hope, a man we'd be proud tp know
I'm telling you Hank Hill is the king

'Cause a hick is a hick (a hick is a hick)
And a dude is a dude (a dude is a dude)
A freak is a freak and a nut is a nut and I love his attitude
There's only one show that's worth a damn on the tube
Yeah he's my hero, a man I'd be proud to know
I'm telling you Hank Hill is the king
Hank Hill is the king

All Jokes Aside

length: 4:08
You think this band, on my left hand
Don't really mean anything to me
You think you're here just to be convenient,
And you're just around to please me.
You think you're plain, and that is so strange
'cause everyone else can sure see, that you
Are truly beautiful, and you mean everything to me.

And all jokes aside - I want you by my side
For the rest of my life - always be my Bride
No, I ain't kiddin' around - 'til they put
Me in the ground
I'll love you for all time - all jokes aside

Now I know that I'm not the perfect husband,
But I've done the best that I can.
Honey if that is not good enough, don't worry
'cause I'll understand.

And for everytime that I've ever hurt you,
I'll probably answer to the Man.
And my heart's full of pride, 'cause I'm
Serious tonight; I just wanna keep this ring
On my hand.

And all jokes aside - I want you by my side.
For the rest of my life - always be my Bride.
No, I ain't kiddin' around - 'til they put
Me in the ground; I'll love you for all time,
And I'm serious tonight - all jokes aside.

Sometimes I Feel Like Joe Montana

length: 4:03
I've been to the Big Dance
Had my share of fame
Sometimes I just wanna go and
Get back in the game

Toss a few more touchdowns
Belt some more home runs
Instead of just sittin around
Thinkin 'bout all the fun
We had in those good ol days
But I know they're all gone
But I still got that spirit
And it just keeps hangin on

Sometimes I feel like Joe Montana
Just wanna go in one more game
I never thought I'd give a damn
When the time came to walk away
But I played hurt alot and I still won
Raced in the end zone steppin high
My worst injury is this misery
Just wanna win one one more time

No one's ever doubted
Or questioned my heart
Thank God I found a girl like you
To keep those worlds apart
So I'll just be her hero
And our kids will be the team
But some nights, I just can't sleep
And she knows it's that old dream

Sometimes I feel like Joe Montana
Just wanna go in one more game
I never thought I'd give a damn
When the time came to walk away
But I played hurt alot and I still won
Romped down the sideline every time
My worst injury are those memories
Just wanna win one one more time

My worst injury are those memories
Just wanna win one one more time
