Track Name: Seven Long Years
I served 7 long years but it felt like more
7 longs years, in the hole
Believe me, what I say is true
It took 7 long years to prove what I can do

Main street, it don't feel the same
Look around, everything has changed
That's 7 years gone and none easier, it’s true
It took 7 years just to prove to you

CHORUS:

Take me back to the city
Take me back to the night
I'd take this town and drink it in
Everything would be alright

Take me back to the city
Where it all began
We held out our cup and watched it fill up,
Never would have planned.

Now 7 long years may have brought you down
And in 7 more if I’m still around
Don't come knocking at my door
I can guarantee you won’t recognize me anymore

I learned from my past and now it’s gonna last
I’m gonna shake my evil ways
Watch now, I’m living on expectancy
Still that 7 years won’t let me be

CHORUS

I served 7 long years but it felt like more
Track Name: Jolene
JOLENE

Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
Sold my coat when I hit Spokane
Bought myself a hard pack of cigarettes
In the early mornin' rain

Lately my hands they don't feel like mine
My eyes been stung with dust and blind
Held you in my arms one time
Lost you just the same

Jolene
Well, I ain't about to go straight, it's too late
And I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze in my hair, blood on my lips

A picture of you holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means

CHORUS:

Jolene
La la la la la la la
Jolene
La la la la la la la. La la la

It's been so long since I've seen your face
Or felt a part of this human race
I've been living out of this here suitcase
For way too long

Man needs something he can hold onto
Nine pound hammer or a woman like you
Either one of them things will do

CHORUS

Cocaine flame in my bloodstream
Sold my coat when I hit Spokane
Track Name: Good as Gold
Don't know what I'm doing here
I'll carry on regardless
Got enough money for one more beer
I'll carry on regardless

Good as gold, but stupid as mud
He'll carry on regardless
They'll bleed his heart 'til there's no more blood
But carry on regardless

Carry on with laugh
Carry on with cry
Carry on with brown under moonlit sky

I want my love, my joy, my laugh, my smile, my needs
Not in the star signs
Or the palm that she reads
I want my sun-drenched, wind-swept Ingrid Bergman kiss
Not in the next life
I want it in this
I want it in this

Got one note to last all week
I'll carry on regardless
The hill to happiness is far too steep
I'll carry on regardless

Dried his mouth in the Memphis sun
He carried on regardless
Tried to smile and he bit his tongue
But carry on regardless

Carry on with work
Carry on with love
Carry on with cheering
Anything above

I want my love, my joy, my laugh, my smile, my needs
Not in the star signs
Or the palm that she reads
I want my sun-drenched, wind-swept Ingrid Bergman kiss
Not in the next life
I'll have it in this
I'll have it in this

I don't want silver, I just want gold
Carry on regardless
Bronze is for the sick and the old
But carry on regardless

I want my love, my joy, my laugh, my smile, my needs
Not in the star signs
Or the palm that she reads
I want my sun-drenched, wind-swept Ingrid Bergman kiss
Not in the next life
I'll have it in this
I'll have it in this
Track Name: Let It Ride
Moving like the fog on the Cumberland River
I was leaving on the Delta Queen
And I wasn't ready to go
I'm never ready to go

27 of nothing but failures and promises
That I couldn't keep
Oh lord, I wasn't ready to go
I'm never ready to go

Let it ride
Let it ride easy down the road
Let it ride
Let it take away all of the darkness
Let it ride
Let it rock me in the arms of stranger's angels until it brings me home
Let it ride
Let it roll
Let it go

Loaded like a sailor
Tumbling off a ferry boat
I was at the bar till three
Oh Lord, and I wasn't ready to go
I'm never ready to go

Tennessee's a brother to my sister Carolina
Where they're gonna bury me
And I ain't ready to go
I'm never ready to go

Let it ride
Let it ride easy down the road
Let it ride
Let it take away all of this darkness
Let it ride
Let it rock me in the arms of stranger's angels until it brings me home
Let it ride
Let it roll
Let it go

I wanna see you tonight
Dancing in the endless moonlight
In the parking lot in the headlights of cars
Someplace on the moon
Where they moved the drive-in theater
Where I left the car that I can't find
But I still got the keys to

Let it ride
Let it ride easy down the road
Let it ride
Let it take away all of this darkness
Let it ride
Let it rock me in the arms of stranger's angels until it brings me home
Let it ride
Let it roll
Let it go
Track Name: Bang Bang Bang
That little cupid, he’s a real sharp shooter
I don’t believe he’s got an arrow and bow
People all think he just couldn’t be cuter
But I saw him down at the gun show

He appeared to be about two years of age
A really freaky thing to see
He was bragging about his sawed-off six gauge
Hidden right up his tattered sleeve

I asked him if the gun had a sight
How can you hit your mark that way
Little cupid, he just laughed outright
He said I don’t take aim I just --
I don’t take aim I just bang bang bang

Ooooh
Ooooh

He fired off a few hot rounds
Right into the sorry crowd
No blood, no gore, no one hit the ground
They all just fell in love
With whoever they happened to be around

It’s funny, till it happens to you
But be sure you stay well out of his way
Love is careless, random and cruel
He don’t take aim he just ---
He don’t take aim he just bang bang bang
He don’t take aim he just bang bang bang
He don’t take aim he just bang -- bang -- bang

Ooooh
Ooooh

He don’t take aim he just bang -- bang -- bang
Track Name: The One I Love
This one goes out to the one I love
This one goes out to the one I've left behind
A simple prop to occupy my time
This one goes out to the one I love

Fire
Fire

This one goes out to the one I love
This one goes out to the one I've left behind
A simple prop to occupy my time
This one goes out to the one I love

Fire
Fire

This one goes out to the one I love
This one goes out to the one I've left -- behind
Another prop has occupied my time
This one goes out to the one I love

Fire
Fire
Fire
Fire

This one goes out to the one I love
Track Name: Pour Another Drink
Pour another drink my friend
And let's get straight to the point of no looking back
‘Cause crazy times call for drastic measure
And looks to me that we're both running out of track

I can't tell you what you want to hear
I've forgotten what to say
So let's drink till our problems they go away

CHORUS:

If you’re drinking to forget
Please pay in advance
‘Cause it's hard to remember when I had the chance
And when it's late at night and the bar room is closing down
Well you'll find me without thought or care
Just rolling on the ground

Well life it is a wild ride
Bar room heroes sitting by my side
We may drink too much when we come around
But emptiness is hard to drown

‘Cause not much matters now
To tell the truth nothing matters to me
So serve us up just one more round
And we'll forget our worries ‘til 3

CHORUS

I'm not sure how we're getting home
I just know I don’t want to be alone
By that time I'll be so gone, you see
It won't matter what you do with me

CHORUS
