Good Time Granny

She asked me to play sweet Virginia 
She asked me more than twice 
And if I was to play it just for her 
She said she’s gonna treat me nice 

I'd get my kicks if I gave her some licks 
This old dog wants to learn new tricks 
If I scratched her belly she could shake her leg 
She’d even roll over if I make her beg  

CHORUS

Don’t ask me to play that song again 
It’s off the set list forever my friend 
It reminds me of the time I had my brush 
With good time granny who’s a lusty old lush

 

When she rolled on in and she was already 
Drunk as Cooter Brown 
She was a country girl done some city miles 
The roughest old bird in town 

She saw me playin' she came right up 
And asked to drink from her lovin' cup 
She said she could be much more than a pal 
She wanted to be my little honkytonk gal  

CHORUS

Getting near to closing time 
There was only time for one more 
And as I started to play Sweet Virginia 
She was crashed out on the floor  

I packed up my stuff as quick as a flash 
And out the front door I was making a dash 
I never thought at the start of the day 
I'd finish this gig by runnin' away

CHORUS

CHORUS

You're Goin' Down

CHORUS

Down, down, you’re goin' down 
You shoulda never shown your face in this part of town 
You’re gonna make some sound when you’re hittin' the ground 
So get ready clown cos you’re goin' down  

I told you once and I told you twice 
If I see you again it ain’t gonna be nice 
After all that you tried to take from me 
The only thing left is misery you're goin'

CHORUS

You drank my whisky when I was gone 
And left the bottles all over my lawn 
You drank my beer and pissed in the sink 
Now I’m real put out so why do you think you’re goin'

CHORUS 

You ran over my dog in your big ole truck 
It wasn’t a case of plain bad luck 
Now I've been robbed of man’s best friend 
He shouldn’t have met such a sorry end you’re goin'

CHORUS

You tried to steal my girl when my back was turned 
How many bridges can one man burn?
I’ll put a new meanin' to hittin' the sack 
With your cojones kicked halfway up your back you’re goin'

CHORUS

CHORUS

Goin' Back Home

Better pack your case and catch the first ride
And I’ll be waitin' there on the other side
Say your farewells you got far to go
You're goin' back home, yeah you’re goin' back home

You better be ready don’t you dare go slow
The journey’s long thousands of miles to go
You’ll be countin' every minute,

every hour that you’ll have flown
But you’re goin' back home yeah you’re goin' back home

CHORUS
I really miss you darlin' like only you would know
This trip ain’t easy when you’ve got so far to go
But I’ll be there to take you back up the road
You're goin' home, yeah you’re goin' back home

The summer’s gone autumn brings its chill
The sun sets early the nights crisp and still
Better bring your coat it’ll chill you to the bone
But you're goin' home, yeah you’re goin' back home

But the home fires are burnin all you need’s right here
All I need is you darlin' have no fear
Don’t take your time cos too much time has gone
Cos you're goin' home, yeah you’re goin' back home

I really miss you darlin' like only you would know
This trip ain’t easy when you’ve got so far to go
But I’ll be there to take you back up the road
You're goin' home, yeah you’re goin' back home
You're goin' home, yeah you’re goin' back home

Hell's Too Good A Place

Every day that you wake up is one big bad mistake 
You were put here on this earth to cause and spread heartache 
The dark clouds overhead are as black as your damned soul 
Hell’s too good a place for you to go  

Every word you utter is a dirty rotten lie 
You act like honesty is the thing you most despise 
You have to keep on diggin' just to fill in your last hole 
Hell’s too good a place for you to go  

The way that you manipulate is a bona fide disgrace 
You’d sacrifice anyone in order to save face 
I don’t want to be there when your tragic end unfolds 
Hell’s too good a place for you to go  

One look into your heart is a picture of despair 
But you force your pain on others cos you think that life’s not fair 
But one day your actions will no doubt take their toll 
Hell’s too good a place for you to go  

I don’t know what happened to you to make you act this way 
But if you keep going like you are it won’t work out ok 
Very soon the curtain’s gonna come down on your show 
Hell’s too good a place for you to go  

If you’re here listenin' you know just who you are 
Let me tell you one day you’re gonna fall down hard 
Cos I can see right through you you make my blood run cold 
Hell’s too good a place for you to go
Hell’s too good a place for you to go

Willow Tree

I'm gonna kill old Charlie Hayes 
This will be his end of days
I'm the man gonna mend his ways
Just you wait and see

I'll be here at the days last light
In the coming darkness of this night
I'm the one gonna end this fight
Down by the willow tree

Wait until the sun goes down 
I'm gonna send the man hellbound
That's where I'm gonna shoot him down 
Till my gun's empty

I'm gonna make him a real dead man
Gonna hold the gun in my right hand 
take him down right where he stands
Down by the willow, down by the willow tree

I'll hate the man till the seas run dry
He's gonna meet the devil tonight 
I won't rest until that man dies
I'm gonna cure the disease

My hatred now consumes my soul
My heart is made of burnin' coal
Death and vengeance is my goal
Down by the willow tree

This is the man who took the life 
Of my little darlin' wife
Cut her down with an old bush knife
He wouldn't hear her pleas

Since then I asked heaven above
Why'd he have to take my love
In his fall to hell I'm gonna give him a shove
Down by the willow, down by the willow tree

Please friend take my advice
I shouldn't need to tell you twice
Payback comes with a heavy price
Hayes will pay the fee

Charlie's boys will come after me
They ain't gonna leave this be
The shallow grave will soon take three
Down by the willow tree

I am gonna hang for sure
Then I'm gonna hurt no more
I'll be knockin' on heavens door
The Lord's gonna set me free

I'm gonna meet my wife again 
Together our two souls can mend
Then I'll meet a happy end
Down by the willow, down by the willow tree

Get Outta My Bar

In my line of work well you see all kinds
But it’s the same old faces puttin' me in a bind
As much as I love all the clientele
I wish you’d get the hell out and take your buddies as well

CHORUS
You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here
It’s plain to see you’ve had quite enough beer
When you hear that refrain picked on the guitar
It’s happy trails that’s a-playin' get outta my bar

There’s a guy over there just been dumped by his girl
He spies a little cutie thinks he’ll give it a whirl
After lots of Dutch courage he thinks up a line
Well it’s too late buddy cos you ran outta time

CHORUS

Two ole buddies over here gettin close to blows
What they’re debatin well god only knows
You better not be thinkin bout startin a fight
You’ll be punchin in the dark when I put out the lights

CHORUS

So pack up your troubles and order a cab
You’ve drowned all your sorrows and paid your tab
You’ll get over that girl and make up with your friends
You’ll come back tomorrow do it all again 

CHORUS
CHORUS

Watcha Gonna Do?

Look who’s comin' round to party tonight 
They’ll all keep goin' till the broad daylight 
The music’s non-stop and the beat goes on 
And you’ll never be sure when they’re finally gone  

 

You can toss and turn it’ll do no good 
It’s obvious you won’t be in the mood 
The more you get anxious it’ll just get worse 
You’d do anything to find a cure for your curse  

CHORUS
Watcha gonna do when the lights go out 
You’re gonna have another sleepless night no doubt 
You look at the prison that you call your bed 
You’re about to wake the demons livin' in your head  

Watcha gonna do when the lights go out 
You’re gonna have another sleepless night no doubt 
You look at the prison that you call your bed 
You’re about to wake the demons livin' in your head  

You wonder where you went wrong why’s it going this way 
And you’ll keep wondering as night turns into day 
Soon you’ll need to get up and do it all again 
It’s never been this bad since you don’t know when  

Though your patience is tried and demeanour is poor 
You still have faith that you’ll find a cure 
Something’s out there to fight the disease 
You better find it before it brings you to your knees

CHORUS

Watcha gonna do when the lights go out
Watcha gonna do Watcha gonna do 
Watcha gonna do when the lights go out
Watcha gonna do Watcha gonna do 
Watcha gonna do when the lights go out
Watcha gonna do Watcha gonna do 
Watcha gonna do when the lights go out
Watcha gonna do Watcha gonna do 
Watcha gonna do when the lights go out

Fred's Dead

What’s the deal with poor ole Fred
He’s lyin’ over there I think he’s dead
He’s been drinkin’ Cactus Jack
Now he’s flat out there on his back

Poor ole Fred I think he’s dead,

Poor ole Fred I think he’s dead
Poor ole Fred I think he’s dead,

Poor ole Fred I think he’s dead

What’s the deal with poor ole Joe
He looked just fine just an hour ago
He’s been drinkin’ all round town
Now he’s cross eyed and upside down

Poor ole Joe he’s no mo’,

Poor ole Joe he’s no mo’
Poor ole Joe he’s no mo’,

Poor ole Joe he’s no mo’

What’s the deal with poor ole Dave
He’s lyin’ down there too late to be saved
He's succumbed to the demon drink
Now he’s just lyin' there makin' a stink

Poor ole Dave too late to be saved,

Poor ole Dave too late to be saved
Poor ole Dave too late to be saved,

Poor ole Dave too late to be saved

What’s the deal with poor ole Jed
He’s lyin’ over there beside ole Fred
He’s been drinkin' the same I bet
But there’s still life in the ole dog yet

Good ole Jed he’s not dead,

Good ole Jed he’s not dead
Good ole Jed he’s not dead,

Good ole Jed he’s not dead
