RM Select - Lyrics

More like my daddy

guess the way i see this world should come as no surprise
after all, they always said i had his eyes
and that had to be the hardest fight i ever fought
with the way he thought

he'd say anything worth doing, son, is worth doing right
and every now and then he'd take his own advice
well it's hard to argue with a man that's seldom wrong
a little head strong and it's one thing i just can't explain
i'm getting more like my daddy every day

i'm getting more like my daddy every day
catch myself saying all those things he used to say
making the same mistakes he made
at least it feels that way
getting more like my daddy every day

well he'd tell the same old stories till i knew 'em all by heart
people tell me all the time can't tell you two apart
never thought about it much those things he passed along
till he was gone
the way he thought, the way he walked
and all those things that linger on

- Murrah, Singleton, Jones

Waitin' on the Lord

this old world's full of trouble and pain
the lord's gonna rescue me
weather man calling for a hurricane
the lord's gonna rescue me

don't need a boat, don't need a plane
the lord's gonna rescue me
ain't worried too much 'bout a little rain
the lord's gonna rescue me

and i'm waitin', i'm waitin'
waitin' on the lord to rescue me
i'm waitin', i'm waitin'
hoping he's gonna get through to me

you can call me crazy but i believe
the lord's gonna rescue me
one of these days he's gonna set me free
the lord's gonna rescue me

i saw that water bust through the dam
the lord's gonna rescue me
good thing the lord knows where i am
the lord's gonna rescue me

- Singleton, Jones

Book of Lies

i heard the cries, tried to visualize
maybe i could sympathize, i wanted to apologize
this town's uncivilized
where's the truth in this book of lies

as we watch our grand demise
criticize and crucify
let our consciences slowly die
one more truth, one more truth from the book of lies

she poured the wine, i could not decline
hey i was mystified, i would not survive
these dangerous times
or find the truth in this book of lies

pages turn, chapters burn into my memory
words take hold, life unfolds in a beautiful mystery

i heard the cries
- Wallace, Jones

World Without End

money passes through a poor man's hands
spends his last dollar on a gallon of gas
working hard to make ends meet
it's tough these days out in the street
in a world without end

every day, gotta pray
for a little more time to find my way
a little more thought, a little more care
if i could just wake up i could be there
in a world without end
in a world without end

got a family that i never see
way back when thought i had to leave
it'd sure be nice if i could see 'em again
it's been so long wonder how they've been
in a world without end

one more day, one less thing i know
and there's just one place left to go

- Singleton, Doyle, Jones

One Life

happily ever after
i hear folks talking about
finding someone and falling in love
guess i ain't quite figured it out
wish i could go there with you just one

for one life, one day at a time
one word and that certain look in your eye
one sweet kiss, one deep long sigh
i could be yours, you could be mine
for one life

i hear the words in a love song
i see people holding hands
makes me feel like i'm missing out
on a big part of the plan
maybe my luck will change just once

true love, they say it happens
true love and you'll know when it does

- McGill, Jones

Say When

say when i can give you all my love
say when it's all about the two of us
whenever you're ready, whatever it takes
however long i've got to wait
i'll be counting the days
baby say when

if i don't see you soon i just might die
the way you keep me wonderin' just ain't right
i don't need that much, all i need's a little sign
maybe i'm just dreaming, i can't tell
what i believe and the way i thought you felt
won't you tell me something, anything would help

every morning it's the same
i wake up and today's gonna be the day
- Singleton, Jones

Backroads

momma always told me boy you ought not to go
the devil's ways will find you down them ol' backroads
i thought i knew something my momma didn't know
what the hell was going on down them ol' backroads

backroads
when the moon is high and you wonder what's coming
backroads
round them curves that'll get your heart a'thumping
backroads
running ninety to nothing, you know that anything goes
down them backroads

well it ain't just dust and gravel out past the lights of town
or driving late into the night with all the windows down
it's getting lost along the the way and turning back around
more times than i can count down the them backroads

some day i may have to put the brakes on
until that time, you can find me running still
down them backroads

- Davis, Jones

Ford Truck

well i've been waitin' for something to happen
what it is i'm not sure any more
i've waking up the morning after
i've been walking through a thousand doors

but there's something wrong with this picture
i've been running in circles all day
i've been looking up at the stars all night
and i make a wish and i pray

if i ever get out of this town alive
if i ever see my way clear
i'm gonna pack up my guitar in this old ford truck
and hit the road in high gear
somebody put the coffee on
feel like i'm half asleep
somebody's trying to tell me, son
there's hope but it don't come cheap

found myself on the phone with you
talking 'bout the way we feel
talking 'bout the world that's changing
talking 'bout some crazy deal

yeah gonna find me a real sweet girl
who'll carry my love inside her
she'll open up heaven's gates
each day and i'll be a little bit wiser

- Webb, Jones

Destroy the Blues

hey mister say you've got the blues
feelin' low down and lonesome too
say you just don't know what to do
hey mister got some news for you

destroy the blues, destroy the blues
you'll feel a lot better when you turn 'em loose
destroy the blues, destroy the blues

lil' sister why you look so sad
lil' sister miss your daddy so bad
think about the good times we had
lil' sister why don't you think about that

oh the blues will lead you to the edge i'm told
take you way down a deep dark hole
spin you around out of control
if you don't let 'em go

hey mister say you got the blues
hey mister got some news for you
destroy the blues

- McGill, Jones

All I Know

don't know much about shakespear
was it romeo cut off his ear
for a little girl who broke his heart
she was a work of art

don't know about apples falling out of trees
or some crazy old man with a kite and a key
but you and me
are kind of like gravity

'cause baby i know
i could never make it in this world alone
i wouldn't have nothing if i didn't have you to hold
'cause your love, your touch, your kiss, your trust in us
is all i know

heard the story about delilah
and samson hoping he would find her
he looked everywhere
till he called out let down your hair

they say love is all you need
and it's a many spendored thing
and it must be true
'cause that's the way i feel about you

- Singleton, Jones

Jack Pumkinhead

hey jack pumkinhead
thought you was dead
ain't seen you around for a good long while
ever since i was a little child
and my grandma read--jack pumkinhead

ain't that ol' huck finn
floatin' round the bend
like a river song rolling along
down to the sea you can hear it call
like a long lost friend--ain't that ol' huck finn

oh we've come a long, long way
now we're turning back, turning back the pages

oh lil' orphan anne
i was wonderin' where you been
come down from the shelf, you've got some stories to tell
oh you better watch out, iremember 'em well
i want to hear 'em again--lil' orphan anne

oh we've come a long, long ways
now we're turning back, turning back the pages
thinking 'bout the good ol' days
hey jack pumkinhead

- Jones

Livin' in Paradise

when i lay my head on my pillow at night
and the woman i love is holding me tight
i must believe i'm doing something right
and it's one more day livin' in paradise
i probably ought to say my prayers a little more often than i do
i call myself too busy but that's really no excuse
but the lord keeps on forgiving me i don't know what he's thinking
and every day he blesses me reaches out and keeps me breathin'

i ran off to the beach and married a girl
both of us starting out in this great big world
she's always doing wonderful and i'm damn lucky to have her
she reminds me of everything in this life that really matters

lord i've got more than i deserve
don't be surprised when you see me back in church

- Singleton, Jones

 


 

Dream train vintage - LYRICS

All About the Money

Everbody's trying just to hang on to it
can't find a way to keep from running right through it
well i've been to the cities and the little small towns
took a look around and here's what i've found
at the end of the month, son, it's all about the money

it's all about the bank roll, cash flow, escrow
here we go rolling on a saturday night
i try to put a little back just to treat my baby right
well it's all spent, pay the rent, can't save a red cent
and i ain't trying to be funny
at the end of the month, son, it's all about the money

some got a little, some got a whole lot
but there ain't never enough in a real tight spot
some people say they're in it for the love
that's the craziest thing i've ever heard of
'cause when push comes to shove, son, it's all about the money

mercy me, small fees, i'm down on my knees
at the automatic teller machine
and at the end of the month, son, it's all about the money

- Wallace, Jones


Dangerous

you want her so bad if you only could
she's the new girl in the neighborhood
she was standing in the bus stop line just waiting
she's got a big smile on the telephone
i can tell she's got it all going on
wish i knew who she was talking to and what she's saying

she's dangerous, so dangerous
she's a red flag waving, so good at misbehaving
she's dangerous
and i can't help myself when she does what she does
she ain't nothing but dangerous

she's on the dance floor spinning round and round
flying down the road with her top down
there's an angel in her eye, she's a devil with the best intention
she's a dream and she leaves me in a sensitive position

late at night when she lays in bed
the wheels are turning inside her head
she ain't nothing but dangerous

- Wallace, Jones


Blindfolds on her Feet

if you wander the desert at sundown
near lobo peak where the old ones speak
and the four footed shadow comes around
without a sound

her spirit walks the universe
and lightning spreads like a spider web
and rain falls like a curse
from a sacred verse

oh the fall and the rise of the foolish and wise
and those who can see blindfolds on her feet
blindfolds on her feet
stumbling round in the desert heat
with blindfolds on her feet

she's the wind that blows the soul
in the canyon deep to the river beneath
where the woman shakes the bones
and breathes sage brush smoke

- Wallace, Jones


Dream Train

all aboard the dream train
say your prayers and lay down on that bed
roll down the track to a distant place
get down deep inside your head
all aboard, don't we all want to get aboard the dream train

i want to lay down my bags by the rail
look back and leave 'em behind
i won't be needing anything at all
but my pillow and a ticket to ride on the dream train

the porter said an hour ago
last train but i can't keep my eyes closed
well i'm tucked in but something is keeping me from sleeping
i need that ticket tonight on the dream train

i don't care about the destination
i just want so bad to leave the station

- Bramlett, Terry, Jones


Hold On

my life before
i knew in my heart i needed something more
lost and alone till you came along
someone to trust and help me hold on

to my big hopes, big dreams
easy to share when two people believe
that love is stronger than a river flows
wilder and deeper the further it goes

so hold on, hold on
hold on to love, have faith and be strong
hold on tight all night long
hold on, hold on, hold on

season's change in the blink of an eye
and we lose count of the years passing by
when my world is spinning out of control
you reach out and give me the strength to hold on

with every breath that we take
with every promise we make

- McGill, Jones

Harrah the Dog

tossed a few back with my buddies last night
it was getting late, we was starting to get right
bobby started talking 'bout his girlfriend troubles
next thing you know we was all drinking doubles

harrah, harrah the dog
when you ain't got a friend and you feel like hell in the morning time
if i get an early start by noon i can feel just fine
living my life on a song and a prayer
every day finds me right back here with harrah the dog

work a forty hour week and i barely make a dime
monday morning comes around and i'm back at the grind
can't get ahead as hard as i try
looking at the world through bloodshot eyes

when you're staring at your coffee
while you're sitting in the kitchen
and you start thinking back 'bout the dog that bit ya
harrah, harrah the dog

- Wallace, Jones

Life in a Day at the Races

he just got paid, he owes the rent
one bet or two won't make a dent
he might see the boys down at the bar
they're not that far from the dreams he chases

he reads the daily forms you know
goes to the track and lays down his dough
he picks the dark horse, it's pride and joy
oh boy, it's life in a day at the races

and the winners keep winning and the losers stay lost
and they rarely if ever change places
and the wages at stake barely cover the cost
in most cases, it's life in a day at the races

he watches the gate, checks the numbers and stares
but the pay window lady just gives him the air
one more whiskey can't do much harm
it's windy and warm as the fillies run through their paces

he makes a big splash in town when he wins
buying the rounds of drinks for his friends
well a man's got to do what he knows how to do
to help see him through life in a day at the races

- Bennette, Jones

Silver Bullets

i took the wrong path, i took the wrong road
i picked the wrong door, could not find my way home
i was alone and afraid and my blood ran cold

i'm tired of waiting, tired of trying
a little squeeze i leave the past behind
i need some time to myself and a little peace of mind

soaking up the ground like rain--silver bullets
rolling through this town like a train--silver bullets
line me up about six or eight--silver bullets
killing off all my wicked ways--silver bullets

devils and demons, deception and lies
in the back alley ways, in the soul of the night
shoot 'em right between the eyes

a blindfold and a cigarette
say your last prayer, take your last deep breath

- Wallace, Jones

My Own Backyard

if you want to barbeque a pig, hang out with a bunch of hicks
we don't talk no politics in my own backyard
friday nights can last till monday, if we don't get it right on sunday
we don't air no dirty laundry in my own backyard

now don't start cussing or raising cain, talking bad about john wayne
willie and waylon goes without saying
we might throw some shoes, sing the blues, fill our bellies full of booze
tell some lies, gamble, and act like fools
yeah that's what we do in my own backyard, in my own backyard

got a big screen television, one more thing i might need to mention
we don't argue about religion in my own backyard
so come on by and meet the neighbors, most anytime don't you be a stranger
got a hot tub and a 'frigerator in my own backyard

- Murrah, Singleton, Jones

i hear folks talking about
finding someone and falling in love

for one life, one day at a time

i could be yours, you could be mine
for one life

i hear the words in a love song

makes me feel like i'm missing out

maybe my luck will change just once

true love, they say it happens
true love and you'll know when it does

Any Way the Wind Blows

have you ever broke down in a small town
'bout a million miles from nowhere
half the time i stay lost anyways
any how i don't care
i was hearing music in my head
now i'm trying to remember how it goes

it goes any way the wind blows
any way the wind blows me is fine
any way the wind blows
any way it blows, i don't mind

have you ever sat down at a bar
wondered where you are and how the hell you got there
and the music plays, the people sway
seems like a place i've been before i swear
so i have drink, the waitress winks, makes me think
she knows something i don't know

she knows any way the wind blows...

guess i'll keep on ramblin'
keep traveling down this road
i'll just keep moving along
till there ain't nowhere else to go

have you ever loaded up the car
just to see how far you go and back again
and it all starts to run together
all the names, all the places that you've been
but one thing stays the same
this old world keeps on changing so i'm told

it goes any way the wind blows...

- Singleton, Jones

If It Were My Dream

if it were my dream
i'd be a tree in your backyard
with a tire swing hanging for kids to play on
with wind chimes in the leaves
dangling in the breeze
and a place for you to lay down in the shade with me
if it were my dream

if it were my dream
i'd be the moon up in the sky
shining my light with all the stars in heaven
shining through your window
resting on your pillow
watching over you when you're fast asleep
if it were my dream

if it were my dream
i'd be the sparkle in your eye
i'd comfort you at night if it were my dream
and nothing much would change
the world would be the same when i wake up
if it were my dream

and i'd send all my love to you
and all the world would know
you feel the same way too

- Singleton, Jones

Rags to Riches

i spend a lot of time thinking about
the way my life is going, what kind of seeds i'm sowing
and if the grass needs mowing
and i stay up late at night
wondering what i might be missing, is anybody listening
maybe i'll just go fishing with a friend
on the road from rags to riches and back again

there's a girl i like to be with her
says she finds me entertaining, puts up with my complaining
i don't like to keep her waiting
i just play guitar, sing in bars
might do a little drinking, i'm still alive and breathing
found a few things i still believe in
on the road from rags to riches and back again

on the road from rags to riches and back again
think it's time i start to pay a little more attention now and then
'cause i've made a few mistakes, more than i care to mention
on the road from rags to riches and back again

i had some dreams along the way
i try to keep 'em small these days
i like doing what i'm doing
but i could use a little more pay

- Singleton, Jones

Waitin' on the Lord

this old world's full of trouble and pain
the lord's gonna rescue me
weather man calling for a hurricane
the lord's gonna rescue me

don't need a boat, don't need a plane
the lord's gonna rescue me
ain't worried too much 'bout a little rain
the lord's gonna rescue me

and i'm waitin', i'm waitin'
waitin' on the lord to rescue me
i'm waitin', i'm waitin'
hoping he's gonna get through to me

you can call me crazy but i believe
the lord's gonna rescue me
one of these days he's gonna set me free
the lord's gonna rescue me

i saw that water bust through the dam
the lord's gonna rescue me
good thing the lord knows where i am
the lord's gonna rescue me

makes me feel like i'm missing out on a big part of the plan

- Singleton, Jones
