I went out last night Tried to knock myself out I got full of that bad bad whiskey Almost started a fight Chorus Bad, bad whiskey Bad, bad whiskey Bad, bad whiskey Made me loose my happy home Made me loose my happy home Whiskey and Women Are drivin’ me out of my mind Every time I get fooled with that whiskey I think I’m doin’ fine Chorus Bad, bad whiskey Bad, bad whiskey Bad, bad whiskey Made me loose my happy home Made me loose my happy home Solo Chorus

Don’t tie me down if you wanna let me go Don’t lie me down, if you wanna know the truth Oh I’ve been here before, locked in your prison of love Walls closing in, bars cold on my skin,
 No one coming in to save me You through me in the Fire, Like a spell I couldn’t break Your love was like a poison You bite stronger than a king snake And every time that I would try to leave Oh you bring me to my knees Walls closing in, bars cold on my skin, No one coming in to save me Bridge Your like a vulture on my heart, your only desire
 You turn gold to stone
, now the flames are burning higher Higher and higher You through me in the fire, Like a spell I couldn’t break Your love was like a poison, your bite stronger than a king snake And as all your dreams shatter like glass. You see it’s only you here
 Walls closing in, Bars cold on my skin, No one coming in to save me

Red heels and malibu, I see you Shadows all around, that you think are your friends Your lip stick on to0 tight and your smile too high And every time you come home, you got a new guy Chorus And I can see it baby, in your eyes... When you let your guard down And the tears start to fly Oh believe me when I tell you girl That this ain't know life, that ain't know life, oh this ain't know life For an angel like you Heaven and hell, no tomorrow Now your livin' each day, in your cage of sorrow Oh just lying to yourself, sayin' it will be alright And that tonight, tonight's the night Chorus And I can see it baby, in your eyes... When you let your guard down And the tears start to fly Oh believe me when I tell you girl That this ain't know life, that ain't know life, oh this ain't know life For an angel like you Solo Chorus And I can see it baby, in your eyes... When you let your guard down And the tears start to fly Oh believe me when I tell you girl That this ain't know life, that ain't know life, oh this ain't know life For an angel like you

Midnight comes too soon When you've lost the moon And nothing breaks the darkness Only the bedroom light And it's much too bright It seems to shout at me Chorus And I can't help but pray Though I don't know to who But a constant yearning Has taken a hold of me I'm down in a hole so deep And midnight comes too soon Familiar sounds seem strange Everything has changed It's like I'm dreaming Out on the street somewhere I know you're there And you're not crying Chorus And I can't help but pray To what I don't know To send me a reason That keeps me from wasting away Despair makes it's midnight creep And midnight comes too soon Bridge At midnight a fallen star shot past the wind At midnight I start to feel a rage within

If You Go 03:26
If You Go Just Leave me one thing To understand Why our love Was turned to This suitcase in your hand Chorus Now I drinking myself to sleep Waking up on different streets Dreaming of a life that could be With you baby Was I so So Bad? Honey I never meant you no harm I can't move From your eye's now Tears rolling down my nose Chorus 2 Now I'm sinking in this hole so deep Waking up on different streets Dreaming of a life that could be With you baby Guitar solo Chorus Now I drinking myself to sleep Waking up on different streets Just dreaming of a life that could mean something baby

Caged Up 03:06
Caged up Been too long since I spread my wings Caged up Can't you see that it ain't my thing You got me bailed up here in this strange old world I was born to fly now I'm living in hell Caged up Caged up How did I end up in your hands Caged up How did I end up in your hands now You got me bailed up here in this strange old world I was born to fly now I'm living in hell Solo Repeat V2
7.
I'm walking the line now In this masquerade I've been here before now It don't seem to change I hear her story And I got to say The sound is so sweet now But she ain't what she says Chorus Straight talker you ain't easy to find Straight talker Won't you ease my mind I'm starting to fly now But she's gone underground looks like a nice ride Don't shoot it down You do me know favors When you play me this way Cause I need a woman That means what she says Chorus 2 Straight talker you ain't easy to find Straight talker Won't you ease my mind Straight talker Don't you mean what you say Straight talker Won't you come my way Solo Chorus 2

Clouds roll over this late Missouri sky The sun heats up and the dust begins to fly Sweeping memories of you all around Never thought you'd get to leaving this old town I search for you every night in my dreams Like some distant mirage you appear on the sea Now I feel like I'm drowning on this dry land I'm praying for water and strength just to stand Chorus Oh now I really got to know Does heaven have a phone Oh now I really got to know Does heaven have a phone As the sun sinks down in this valley of tears I can see your face so calm and clear And when I close my eyes I can see you in the stars I feel you right beside me, we're strumming our Guitars Chorus Oh now I really got to know Does heaven have a phone Oh now I really got to know Does heaven have a phone Solo Chorus Oh now I really got to know Does heaven have a phone Oh now I really got to know Does heaven have a phone

You picked me up Oh just to put me down Now the word on the street She's gone left town Now I'm the last The last to know As the rain came down I was all alone Chorus Oh New Orleans woman Down by the bayou Won't you bring your love, bring it back home Oh New Orleans woman Playin' that Zydeco Won't you bring your love Bring it back home Her voice could heal your soul And make your heart rock n' roll Make a poor man rich And another man whole And by the swamp we had a garden And loving it just kept it green But now I spend my nights alone Looking for my baby Chorus Oh New Orleans woman Down by the bayou Won't you bring your love, bring it back home Oh New Orleans woman Playin' that Zydeco Won't you bring your love Bring it back home Solo Chorus

Goodbye Baby 03:54
My minds done, gone thinking about you baby And the time has come that I'll be moving on Oh this loneliness... That crawls through my skin And all the lies, when I know your with him Chorus Goodbye Baby, Baby Goodbye ( repeat ) That old train, keeps on moving me around Still at every stop, I see your face in the crowd Haunting me with your smile, to take me back But I just shake my head... Cause it's too late for that Chorus Goodbye Baby, Baby Goodbye ( repeat ) Solo Chorus
11.
As far back I can't remember I either had to plow or hoe One of those long ol' nine feet sacks Standin' at the old turn row Pre Chorus Down in Mississippi. Down in Mississippi Chorus Down in Mississippi where I was born Down in Mississippi where I come from Nothing I got 'gainst Mississippi It also was the home of my wife Now I feel like a real, lucky man To get away with my life Pre Chorus Down in Mississippi. Down in Mississippi Chorus Down in Mississippi where I was born Down in Mississippi where I come from They had a huntin' season on a rabbit If you shoot him boy your goin' to jail The season was always open on me Nobody needed no bail Down in Mississippi. Down in Mississippi
