Honky Tonk Bound

Well, I’m a gonna get drunk tonight on a honky tonk hardwood floor.
Gonna tie one on real tight, like I never did before.
Gonna take my baby dancin’, gonna spin her round and round.
We’re gonna do a little honky tonkin’, we’re gonna kick a hole in this town.

We’re gonna get drunk tonight like we never did before.
We ain’t gonna fuss and fight on a honky tonk hardwood floor.
This night’s made for dancin’, I’m gonna spin you round and round.
Come on little darlin’ we’re gonna be Honky tonkin’ bound.

Well, when that ol’ weekend come, I’m gonna put my good boots on.
Gonna hit every night spot in this town, Gonna honky tonk all night long.
I’m gonna take my baby dancin’, we’re gonna kiss, and hug, and fight.
Come on little darlin’ we’re goin’ out on a honky tonk Saturday night.

We’re gonna get drunk tonight like we never did before.
We ain’t gonna fuss and fight on a honky tonk hardwood floor.
This night’s made for dancin’, I’m gonna spin you round and round.
Come on little darlin’ we’re gonna be Honky tonkin’ bound.

When the weekend come along, I’ll be a honky tonkin’ bound.
With my baby under my arm, we’re gonna kick a hole in this town.
We’re gonna dress up real nice, I’m gonna put my good hat on.
We’re gonna honky tonk all night, and we’re never goin’ home.

So Sad And Lonely

Well, I met her down at the station, a quarter till noon it did say.
She was going to meet her destination, and a man from town to take her away.
Well, you don’t love me like you oughta, she told me with tears in her eyes,
and I felt alone, and forsaken, because she fell in love with another guy.

And it’s sad, so sad, cold, and lonely,
as I think of you as often as I do,
about how I loved that woman,
and how my heart breaks in two

And I sit alone here in silence. and take on that bottle like I do
just thinking how I loved that woman, and how my heart breaks in two.
But everything fades away to nothing, and the memories they burn deep inside
thinking how much I loved that woman, and how much I just wanna die.

And it’s sad, so sad, cold, and lonely,
as I think of you as often as I do,
about how I loved that woman,
and how my heart breaks in two

I’m Drinking Again

Well, I’m drinkin’ again with all of my friends.
There here to help me get along.
With you out of my life, I’m colder than ice.
You know you just meant to do me wrong.

Well, you broke my heart, you tore me all to hell.
You did it from the start, and all the boys could tell.
The love that you gave, well, it came with a price,
and now I’m sitting here, and my heart’s as cold as ice.

Well, you stuck it to me good, and they told me that you would,
but I never seemed to heed to their call.
So I’ll drown all my pain, and try hard to stay sane.
You know you’re the cause of it all.

Well, you broke my heart, you tore me all to hell.
You did it from the start, and all the boys could tell.
The love that you gave, well, it came with a price,
and now I’m sitting here, and my heart’s as cold as ice.

Well, I told you to quit, and you told me to quit,
but quitting ain’t never been my style.
So, I’ll sit here all alone, just a drinking all alone.
You know the whiskey is gonna numb me for awhile.

When The Two Of Us Were One

Oh what shall I do with this heart,
this heart of mine, and what shall I do
to pass the time.

Well, I thought about the bottle,
but I think more about this gun,
and I thought about your sad eyes,
and how us two were one.

Everything swirls to the bottom,
down there with the liquor and the hell.
You told me that I sold my soul,
but darlin’ how can you tell.

Well, I thought about the bottle,
but I think more about this gun,
and I thought about your sad eyes,
and how us two were one.

Tomorrow comes on so slowly,
and then tomorrow might never come.
So, I keep right on a hoping,
just like the bullets from this gun.

How Can I Tell You That I Love You

How can I tell you that I love you
And how would you know that it’s true
And what would you think of me
If my heart was black and blue.

Well, I know in my mind it’s true
These feelings ‘tween me and you
‘Cause darlin’, I still love you
But there’s nothing more I can do.
So, the barroom is where you’ll find me
Doin’ what I know how to do.

How can I tell you that I love you
About these feelings ‘tween me and you
‘Cause you’re the one I’m thinking of
And you know you’re still the one I love.

Well, I know in my mind it’s true
These feelings ‘tween me and you
‘Cause darlin’, I still love you
But there’s nothing more I can do.
So, the barroom is where you’ll find me
Doin’ what I know how to do.

Mister, Don’t Take That Girl From Me

Mister, don’t take that girl from me,
Cause I’ve loved her since 1983.
She’s my woman, but better, she’s my friend,
and mister, I’d like this heartache to end.

She’s the best damn thing to happen in my life,
and someday that woman will be my wife.
She’s the heaven in my hell, can’t you see.
So mister, don’t take that girl from me.

Mister, don’t take that girl from me,
I love her more than anything can’t you see.
I’ve cried a million tears for that girl,
so mister, don’t take away my world.

She’s the best damn thing to happen in my life,
and someday that woman will be my wife.
She’s the heaven in my hell, can’t you see.
So mister, don’t take that girl from me.

So mister don’t take that girl from me,
‘cause the heartache twists a little each day,
and the whiskey don’t calm like it used to.
So mister, there’s nothin’ more to do.

Just A Drunken Song

Well, I’m drunk on a barstool in a barroom.
Whiskey, beer, and women is all I do.
I get stoned on the memories that seem to linger,
like the years that roll on inside you.

Well, just a drunken song for me and you.
About all the shit we used to do.
About shit we’ve done to ourselves,
and the fucked up ways we walk through hell.

Well, chasin’ skirt, and another round or two,
like those old timers used to do,
as the juke box plays another sad ol’ tune,
just a drunken song for me and you.

Well, just a drunken song for me and you.
About all the shit we used to do.
About shit we’ve done to ourselves,
and the fucked up ways we walk through hell.

Well, I spend my time down here at the bottom,
fuckin’ up the only thing I know
with the whiskey, the women, and the song,
about another heart that’s grown cold.
Lonesome Ol’ Gringo

I’m just a lonesome ol’ gringo with my outdated lingo,
but it helps me to stay who I am.
Some say that I’m lazy. Some say a bit crazy,
but frankly, I don’t give a goddamn.

I’ve been out there a driftin’, my heartache never liftin’,
but still, I stay on my path
Just a wantin’ for more, and maybe a bit more,
hoping I can keep what I have.

Well, the world keeps on turnin’, and my head keeps a spinnin’
from the nights I stay out too late
with the liquor in my blood, I roll on like a flood
as the devil do a dance in my veins.

So, I’m gonna sit here awhile with this lazy ol’ smile,
and do what I know how to do.
To be a lonesome ol’ gringo, a goin’ where I go,
driftin’ with the lonesome ol’ few.

In The Pastures

Did you see the stars out there in the sky
that set there on your shoulder as you pass them by.

You once was an angel but you fell to your death
out there in the pastures where I took your last breath.

Your eyes never see me, nor your hands touch my heart
when I smiled at you babe, when I fell apart

The stars they are a shining, and moon reaches down
to touch you on your shoulder, but you’re never around.
Well, you are never around.

Angel In Love With A Devil

She’s only an angel in love with a devil
Who deals a bad hand. He deals a bad hand.

But the angel still loves him and she’ll love him forever
Cause that devil is her man. That devil is her man

But the devil, he’s a pining. He’s a pining for his angel
Who keeps him out of hell. She keeps him out of hell.

And the devil grows weary from all of that sinning
But that angel, she got love. That angel she’s got love.

And there once was a devil in love with an angel
And that angel was his world. That angel was his girl.

That’s Why I Shed A Tear

Well, here I stand with bags in hand,
watching you in the rain,
and I’ve been beaten, and I haven’t eaten,
it’s a wonder that I’m still sane.

Just wanting to love you, wanting to tell you.
Wanting to hold you so near,
For you were my darlin’, you were my true love,
And that’s why I shed a tear.

I rode in from Eugene, riding an old freight train.
Traveling for miles trying to leave my memories of pain.
I remember you sitting there, your face is so clear,
and I see your sad eyes, it’s always your sad eyes,
and that’s why I shed a tear.

Just wanting to love you, wanting to tell you.
Wanting to hold you so near,
For you were my darlin’, you were my true love,
And that’s why I shed a tear.

How Blue Is Your Sky

With rum soaked bones and a heart full of fire.
I knelt down on my knees and gave you a flower.
You took it from my hand and dropped it to the floor.
You called me a liar and walked out that door.

But that’s okay.
That’s okay, I didn’t cry
But just tell me though
How blue is your sky.

I followed you down those lonely forgotten streets.
I followed you there into your heart that deceives.
I cracked my skull and drowned in your love
and never did I see you standing over me above.

But that’s okay.
That’s okay, I didn’t cry
But just tell me though
How blue is your sky.

Hope Someday You Will Understand

Well, little darlin’ don’t think ill of me
For all the reasons that I just can’t see.
It seems to be just the way I am.
I hope someday you could understand.

You know I’ve never meant to do no harm.
I never could in your loving arms.
I can’t explain, it’s just the way I am.
I hope someday you could understand.

I came up from the depths of hell.
Little darlin’ baby can’t you tell.
I hope and pray that you’re doing well.
To never fall to where I’ve fell.

I’m still the man that you knew back then
Back before the day I drown in sin.
I can’t explain, it’s just the way I am.
I hope someday you could understand.

They Call Me The Zero (1994)

I’ve spent my life face down in the dirt.
I’ve had my beatings, and I’ve been hurt.
I’ve held my own now for so many years.
I’ve had my heartache, and have shead my tears.

And they call me the zero, and I’ll stay out of your way
With your kicks and your punches, and my no good ways.
They call me the zero, and I stay drunk all the time.
Go ahead and abuse me, you ain’t no friend of mine.
You’re no friend of mine.

I have no friends to call my own.
I drink with myself, ‘cause I’m better alone.
Day in and day out I hide inside myself
Down here at the bottom I’m closer to hell.

I hide my pain inside of my heart.
There’s no need to worry, I’ve done it from the start.
I sleep in the gutter ‘cause I feel more at home,
And amongst all my friend, I’m always alone.

They’ve cut me, and beat me. and slandered my name.
I’m empty as nothing, and I carry this shame.
So, the barrooms and beerjoints you’ll find me,
But don’t try to save me, just leave me be.
Trying To Feel Something That’s Right

Well, sometimes I feel like living, other times I feel I’m not right
but most the time I just sit around, and I can’t feel nothing tonight.
Sometimes I feel like dancing, and other times I just want to cry,
just waste away as I sit around, trying to feel something that’s right.

Trying to feel something that’s right with little thoughts to ease the pain.
I pace the floor all night to remember the words you’d say.
My head spins around this room as it all falls on down.
I hope you’ll be home real soon, so I can turn this all around.
I wanna turn this all around.

Sometimes I think of leaving, sometimes I just seem to fall
like the times I’m at the bottom, I can’t feel nothing at all.
Sometimes I feel like winning,

Sometimes I think I’m happy, and other time I’m just no good,
like the times I just drift away, not doing things that I should.
Sometimes I keep on falling, and lose my soul in the fight
like the times I just fade away, trying to feel something that’s right.

I Once Was A King (2009)

I once was a king, and you once were my queen,
And I gave you my ring, and I’ll give you anything.
I said take my hand, for I am your man.
We’ll walk through this land, ‘cause darlin’ I’ve got plans.

I need you right here. I wanna hold you near.
To wash away your fears. I’ll wipe away your tears.
When you were my queen, I felt like your king.
I burnt up our dreams, and they floated down stream.

My heart’s in your hand. So, let me be your man.
We’ll do what we can, and I’ll show you that I can.
So, let me be your king, and you can be my queen.
I show you these things. I’ll give you my dreams.

I’ve Got A Woman

Well, I gotta woman, and she loves me so
She tells me little things that I wanna know.
She holds my heart, so I’ll never pine,
and in my arms I’m gonna call her mine.

Gonna call her mine, yeah, she’s mine,
and I feel so fine, ‘cause she’s on my mind.
Well, she treats me right every night.
I wanna hold her tight,
Cause she treats me rights.

Well, I gotta woman, and I want her love.
I know that she was sent from the Lord above.
I can’t wait just to love her so,
and in my arms, I’ll never let her go.

I’ll never let her go, ‘cause I love her so.
Baby, don’t you know how I love you so.
Yes, I love her so, baby, please don’t go.
Baby, don’t you know how I love you so.
