SOUTHERN RAIN
Times were rough when times were lean
Most the time nobody seemed to care
No more peace than a southern breeze
Whistling trough the willow trees
And i see you...standing there
And i reach out to touch your face
But the cold hard facts of life put me in my place

Chorus:
Southern Rain fallin`down on me
Thinkin`back to yesterday and the way things used to be
Sweet home on the radio,why do things have to change
Oh lord what i would not give to feel that southern rain

Watermelon growin`on the vine
The taste of homemade wine
And the soft touch of your fingertips
Layin`down by the riverside
Do you recall how we used to hide
So i could taste your lips
Though the winds of change took me from home
So many years just passed me by
And now i`m all alone

Repeat Chorus

You said that we could last forever
But i had my wild oats yet to sow
Through every storm and each endeavor
The past and the love we found
Just will not let me go

Repeat Chorus

BURN DOWN THE TRAILER PARK
I borrowed some money; i sold my car
I put an airstream trailer up on blocks
That satellite dish was my first mistake
She started watchin`Oprah Winfrey and Ricky Lane
She cut me down to once a week
At supper time there wasn`t nothing to eat
I was paranoid and scared to death
She came home with aqua velva on her breath

Chorus:
Burn down the trailer park
Shoot the pink flamingos out in the yard
I can`t live here since you broke my heart
I`m gonna burn down the trailer park

She hired the neighbor`s son to cut our grass
She gave him cold ice tea and a piece of pie
My landlord came while i was out of town
Our pipes got fixed and the rent went down
We fell asleep with the late show on
Now it`s 3.AM i wake up and she`s gone
I`ve got a strong suspicion she`s at it again
And since i don`t know which trailer she`s in
I`m gonna...
Repeat Chorus

Jenny Jones don`t understand
Geraldo don`t understand
Maury Povich sure don`t understand
I`ve got a can of gas and I´m a dangerous man

Repaet Chorus...

YOU WON`T BE LONELY NOW
I know you've seen all your dreams turn to dust
I know your heart's been left in the rain to rust
But you won't be lonely now

I see a long trail of tears in your eyes
Back to the day when the innocence died
But you won't be lonely now

I wanna give you everything you need
I wanna show you
You won't be lonely
You won't be lonely now

Holding you here like a rose in the dark
I make this promise to you from my heart
You won't be lonely now

I wanna give you everything you need
I wanna show you
You won't be lonely now
I'd do anything to make you see
How I'm gonna love you
You won't be lonely
You won't be lonely

Now that you're here in my arms I'm alive
For the first time in a long time I
Look at my face in the mirror and see
The man that I've wanted to be

Oh Yeah
I wanna give you everything you need
I wanna show you
You won't be lonely now
I'll do anything to make you see
How I'm gonna love you
You won't be lonely
You won't be lonely
You won't be lonely now

ACHY BREAKY HEART
You can tell the world,you never was my girl,
you can burn my clothes up when I`m gone
Or you can tell your friends just what a fool I`ve been
and laugh and joke about me on the phone
you can tell arms go back onto the farm
you can tell my feet to hit the floor
or you can tell my lips to tell my fingertips
they won`t be reachin`out for you no-more

But don`t tell my heart,my achy breaky heart
I just don`t think he`d understand
and if you tell my heart,my achy breaky heart
he might blow up and kill this man

You can tell you Ma I moved to Arkansas
or you can tell your dog to bite my leg
Or tell your brother Cliff whose fist can tell my lip
he never really liked me anyway
or tell your aunt Louise,tell anything you please
myself already knows I`m not okay
or you can tell my eyes to watch out for my mind
it might be walkin`out of me today

But don`t tell my heart,my achy breaky heart...
Give My Heart To You
I gave two teeth in a teenage brawl
For a girl whose name I can`t recall
Then we broke up
I gave a knee to the football team
Chasing that high school state champ dream
We almost won
I gave junior college almost a year
Then I gave a Greyhound twenty bucks
And that`s how i got here
Chorus:
I give all my money for a slice of daily bread
I give forty honest hours to a boss I never  met
And I gave my soul to Jesus at the age of twenty-two
So there ain`t much left to offer
But I give my heart to you
I gave a beard and a head of hair
To a boot camp corporal with a barber`s chair
At Camp LeJeune
I gave Uncle Sam what he bargained for
Twenty-four mounths,not a minute more
I just didn`t fit in
Then I gave a high school friend of mine a call
And we gave a body shop a try
`Til we gave up last fall
(Chorus)

BUSY MAN
There`s a little boy out in the driveway.
His basketball in hand,
saying Daddy can we play a little one on one.
You pat him on the back and say not now son,I`m a busy man.

His sister`s out on the sidewalk,
setting up a lemonade stand.
Hey,Daddy,don`t you want to buy a glass from me.
You say,maybe later,can`t you see,I`m a busy man.

Chorus:
You gotta go,gotta run,hit it hard and get it done.
Everyone can see you`re going far.
You got responsibilities,A crazy schedule that you keep.
Andwhen you say the time`s a wasting,
you don`t know how how right you are.Busy man.

There`s a woman in the bedroom crying.
Saying,I thought we had plans.
You say,honey,I`m sorry,I`ll make it up
when the job slows down and I`m not such a busy man.

Chorus:
You gotta go,gotta run,hit it hard and get it done.
Everyone can see you`re going far.
You got responsibilities,A crazy schedule that you keep.
Andwhen you say the time`s a wasting,
you don`t know how how right you are.Busy man.

Have you ever seen a head stone with these words:
If only I had spent more time at work.
There`s a call one day from the office.
They need you down in Birmingham.
You say,no way,the weekend`s mine.
I got plans with the kids and a day with my wife.I`m a busy man.

Chorus wechseld:
You gotta go,gotta run.Take a break and have some fun.
Those who love you most say you`ve come far.
Got some new priorities in that schedule that you keep,
and when you say the time`s a wasting,
now you know how right you are.
Busy Man,Busy Man.

IT`S ALL THE SAME TO ME
Girl you can head north,south,east or west
Which way you go i couldn`t care less
It don`t matter if this ain`t where you want to be.
You can take the couch.you can take the chair.
It makes no difference.I don`t care.
Can`t you see it`s all the same to me.
Refrain:
You can put me on some island in the middle of the sea.
Lock me in a prison with no chance of ever being free.
Run a dragger through my heart,stand back and watch me bleed.
Or baby you can leave,it`s all the same to me.
Day or night rain or shine,
I`ll be alone still losing my mind.
Without you it`s all the same to me.
Repeat Refrain
I could never love someone else.
If i can`t have you,you might as well,
Just put me on some island in the middle of the sea.
Lock me in a prison with no chance of ever being free.
Run a dragger trough my heart.Stand back and watch me bleed,
Or baby you can leave,it`s all the same to me.
Yeah baby if you leave,it`s all the same to me
It`s all the same to me.it`s all the same to me
Yeah baby if you leave
It`s all the same to me
Baby,baby if you leave
It`s all the same to me.

UNDER THE HOOD
Well my first love was a little Corvette
All done up in lipstick red
I thought it`d last forever`til the motor blew
Well i guess i didn`t look close enough
It`s a little bit just like falling in love
Looks don`t mean a thing,if the heart ain`t true.
Chourus:
It might be a cool ride,smooth lines
Something been custom made out in Hollywood
But when you get done gazing at the outside
You better start checking out the inside
If you want a love build to last,you better look real good.
And see what`s under the hood.
Sporty little model standing by the door
So i took her for spin on the old dance floor
Headlights shining bright but nobody home
Now i need something that`s more my speed
Got a whole lotta time to find what i need
So, i put her in park and headed on off for home.
Repead Chourus twice
You better look real good,and see what`s under the hood.
