Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound

length: 3:11

I've got a good woman at home who thinks I do no wrong
But sometimes Lord she just ain't always around
And you know that's when I fall I can't help myself at all
And I get whiskey bent and hell bound
Play me some songs about a ramblin' man put a cold one in my hand
'Cause you know I love to hear those guitar sounds
Don't you play I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry cause I'll get all balled up inside
And I'll get whiskey bent and hell bound

Sure enough about closing time about stoned out of my mind
And I end up with some honky tonk special I found
Just as sure as the morning sun comes thinking of my sweet girl at home
And I need to get whiskey bent and hell bound
Play me some songs about a ramblin' man put old Jim Beam in my hand
'Cause you know I still love to get drunk and hear country sounds
But don't you play 'Your Cheatin' Heart' that'll tear me all apart
I'll get whiskey bent and hell bound
Yeah old Hank's songs always make me feel low down

Tired of Being Johnny B. Good

length: 2:36
I don't like instant ice tea
And I aint crazy about dollar a gallon self service gasoline
And they nearly broke me with the high price of beef
And the funny thing is they think their putting this over on me

I've always been an upstanding citizen
But I am getting fed up now my friends
And if you don't understand what I've said
I'm tired of being Johnny B Good and I'm
Gonna be Johnny Reb

Yeah I'm gonna be Johnny Reb
'Cause I don't believe everything I've seen and read
And I work like hell just to keep a roof and a bed
I'm tired of being Johnny B Good and I'm
Gonna be Johnny Reb

This country's gettin' in a kinda bad shape
When the gasoline profits are up, up and away
And I can barely live on my take home pay
There's a whole lot of people that agree to what I say
Don't tell me to ride a bus and turn down my thermostat
When yer all runnin' around in jets and cadillacs

Well I can't take this lying down
We gotta try and fight back 'till they believe what we said
We're tired of being Johnny B Good and we
Gotta be Johnny Rebs

Yeah we gonna be Johnny Rebs
'Cause we don't believe everything we've seen and read
And we work like hell just to keep a roof and a bed
We're tired of being Johnny B Good and we
Gotta be Johnny Rebs

We're Tired of being Johnny B Good and we
Gotta be Johnny Rebs

Outlaw Women

length: 3:03
Lyrics~ Hank Williams Jr. "Outlaw Women"


She works in the bank and she works in the store
And she don't go for that old stuff anymore
She likes to get high and listen to the band
She likes to make love to her kind of men
These outlaw women first of their kind outlaw women they got here right on time
Outlaw women they don't need any guns outlaw women just out for fun

In many ways she's a lot like me she don't give a damn 'bout society
Might be a little rich girl she might be poor
She Might be a married woman that needs a little more
Yeah.. she's a outlaw woman first of her kind
These outlaw women ridin' high in seventy-nine
These outlaw women don't need any guns these outlaw women just out for fun

Some Call her a Lady
Some call her other names
But you won't ever call her that around me and my gang....

(I Don't Have) Anymore Love Songs

length: 2:25
There's been some things that I've wanted to say a long time.
Never have I spent a day without you on my mind,
And I've tried a lot of songs and I need to try one that's new.
But I don't have any more love songs to try on you.

We just can't ever get it together it seems.
Your arms don't hold me the way that they do in my dreams.
And it's hard to make up things that you never knew.
And I don't have any more love songs to make up 'bout you.

I don't have any more love songs to write for you.
Too many I wrote before have never come true.
And its hard to make up lines to things you don't do.
And I don't have any more love songs to sing for you.
And it's hard to make up things that you never knew.
And I don't have any more love songs to sing to you.

White Lightnin'

length: 2:22

Well in North Carolina, way back in the hills
Me and my old pappy had a hand in a still
We brewed white lightnin' 'til the sun went down
Then he'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around
Mighty, mighty pleasin, pappy's corn squeezin'
Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin'

Chorus:
Well the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin to book him
But my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin'

Well I asked my old pappy why he called his brew
White lightnin' 'stead of mountain dew
I took a little sip and right away I knew
As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Lightnin' started flashin' and thunder started crashin'
Shhhoooh . . . white lightnin'

Chorus:
Well the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin to book him
But my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin'

Well a city slicker came and he said "I'm tough"
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff
He took one g-g-glug and drank it right down
And I heard him a moaning as he hit the ground
Mighty, mighty pleasin, pappy's corn squeezin'
Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin'

Chorus:
Well the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin to book him
But my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin'...

Women I've Never Had

length: 2:53
I love to hear old trains rolling down the line
I am into happy and I don't like sad and I like to have women I never had
I take a little smoke and a lot of wine I get high on all old friends of mine
I like the sweet young things and Old Grandad and I like to have women I've never had
[ dixieland ]
I like to ride my hoses and shoot my gun you know a cowboy's work is just never done
I am in to bacics and I don't like fads and I like to have women I never had
Hey I don't mean to ever do nobody no wrong
I was just born the son of a singing song
I do things to make people mad and I like women I never had


O.D.'d in Denver

length: 2:41
We started the tour out in Denver Colorado
I made the first one but I did not make the second show
Cause I met this girl there that brought about quite a big change
But I OD'd in Denver and I just can't remember her name
I guess you could say that my love life would not up to part
Too many alone had left some permanence scars
She told me she'd love me and I told her I'd do the same
Then I OD'd in Denver and I just can't remember her name
I brought it on myself and I guess that I shouldn't complain
Doc said son you can't do anymore about cocaine
But she made me higher than all of those expensive things
But I OD'd in Denver and wish I could remember her name

I turned to other things tryin' to make my daydreams real
But they don't take the place of the woman's face and her feels
She treated me nice and I like to find her again
But I OD'd in Denver and I just can't remember her name
I brought it on myself...
I overdid it in Denver and I just can't remember her name

Come and Go Blues

length: 4:06
People say you're no good I couldn't cut to loose babe if I could
Well I seen this thing down on the ground
Baby I'm too far gone to start turnin' around
Well if only you make up your mind
Take me where you go or just leave me here to pine

Lord you got those come and go blues woman you got those come and go blues
Got me feeling like a fool just like a fool

Round and round round to go
Don't ask me why I stay here cause I do know
Maybe I'm a fool to care baby without your sweet love I would be nowhere
Here I'll stay lost in your will until that day I find someone else
But I don't know just when that will be
I don't know I can't say and I can't see

Lord you got those come and go blues woman you got those come and go blues
Got me feeling like a fool just like a fool

Old Nashville Cowboys

length: 3:05
The old Nashville cowboy was burdened with time
He was bent by his years and the fight with the wine
With a head full of music and an old nursery rhyme
A heart full of sadness and dark sunken nights
He told me they cheated he told me they stole
The strength from his youth and the songs from his soul
He said he was family till he got too old
And he called them miners mother load finders
Digging so deep in search of more gold
Oh where are the cowboys and the home on the range
Does anyone know that they've killed Jesse James
Now the good guys on TV seem bad ain't it strange
And the old Nashville cowboys missed out on the change

The old cowboy's life now is gone with the past
Like whiskey he drank it all went out too fast
He didn't know how to make each swallow last
And the head waitress won't be back to fill up his glass
Oh where are the cowboys and the home on the range
Does anyone know that they've killed Jesse James
Is anyone listening or is everyone blind
And old Nashville cowboys will sing for a dime
And hard times are cheap at the end of the line

The Conversation

length: 3:52
performer: Waylon Jennings

Hank let's talk about your daddy tell me how your mama loved that man
Well just break out a bottle hoss I'll tell you bout the driftin' cowboy band
We won't talk about the habits just the music and the man
Now Hank if you just got to tell me did your daddy really write all them songs
That don't deserve no answer hoss let's light up and just move along
Do you think he wrote 'em about your mama or about the man who done her wrong
You know that
Well back then they called him crazy now a days they call him a saint
Now the ones that called him crazy are still ridin' on his name
Well if he was here right now Bocephus
Would he think that we were right do you think he might
Don't you know he would walk tall sir be right by our side
If we left for a show in Provo he'd be the first one on the bus and ready to ride
Wherever he is I hope he's happy and I hope he's doin' well yes I do
He is cause he's got one arm around my mama now
How he sure did love Miss Audrey and raisin' hell
I won't ask you no more questions to the stories only Hank could tell
Well back then they called him crazy now a days they call him a saint
Most folks don't know that they fired him from the Opry
And that caused him the greatest pain
I loved to tell you about lovesick and how Miss Audrey loved that man
You know I've always loved to listen
To the stories about the driftin' cowboy band
You know when we get right down to it still the most wanted outlaws in the land
