Movin On

 

30 acres and a couple old barns
wide open spaces and a quiet garden
It feels like home
But it ain’t where I belong
Cause I found a place where my heart can wander
Way over the horizon
By sunset yonder

I got 4 generations on my family tree
And a wall full of memories right in front of me
But I don’t belong
It’s time that I went home
Cause deep in my heart there’s a voice that’s callin
And the clock keeps tickin
but it feels like fallin

************************

Oh I got light
Shinin all around me like a memory
It’s my life
Grounding my perception all that’s left of me
Is something deep inside
I gotta take everything I am
I’m leavin’ it all behind

***********************

Well I’ve seen youth and middle age
A little bit of hunger and my fair share of pain
But it’s all the same
And I can’t complain
Cause I felt the thrill of my wheels in motion
And I’ve seen the sun settin over the ocean

And it’s your love that’s sustainin me
My heart feels heavy cause it wants to be free
It’s the same old end
Let’s run away my friend
When the clouds get heavy and it rains like a fountain
I’ll be up in the air and over the mountain

*************************

Well it’s been comin for the longest time
It feels livin but it looks like dyin’
Cause I’m movin on
but I’ll never be gone

‘The Very Best’ Lyrics

I’m not home now
but I will be
When I knocked upon your door
and you held me
from those hard times
from those heartaches
them nasty turns it took
before my will breaks
I hope I’m not too late to roll to you
And rest upon your breast

Oooooo

I may not be too good at most things
I do

Ooooooh

I’m the very best at missin’ you
I am the very best at missin’ you

Got no answers for my wanderin’
Those lonely nights I stayed up ponderin’
Alone and drinkin’
slowly sinkin’
a million miles from you what was I thinkin’
I hope I’m not too late to roll to you
and rest upon your breast

Oooooooh

I may not be too good at most things
I do

Oooooooh

I’m the very best at missin’ you
I am the very best at missin’ you

All those people all those places
I just can’t remember all them faces
Some are good ones some are bad ones
I had some money ridin’ and I’d have spent some
I’d be rolling strait to you
and I’d be restin on your breast

Oooooooh

I may not be too good at most things
I do

Oooooooh

I’m the very best at missin’ you
I am the very best at missin’ you
I am the very best at missin’ you
I am the very best at missin’ you

–Lyrics– (Choruses in Bold)

Stuck in traffic in a greyhound bus
I’m headin down to New Orleans
I’m pretty tired of all the
Tough times and grindin
I’m goin out of my mind
I can’t stay here

Let’s get real let’s remember
Everything dies in November
So let’s just take our time
and grab a beer
Relax and don’t worry
Bad things happen when ya hurry
And we don’t plan to find
no trouble here
Here in New Orleans

Country music on the
radio station I’m
Crossin the nation
With my friends
Sippin whiskey
and tellin crazy stories
And dreamin of the time
We’ll meet again

Almost to Louisiana
Left my dream’s back in Indiana
so let’s just take our time
and grab a beer
Relax and don’t worry
Bad things happen when you hurry
and everything is fine
no trouble here
Here in New Orleans

Lost in the rays of another
Sunny day I know I
May never drift this far again
But ol New Orleans here to free my soul
Don’t blow this Southern state of mind
My friend

Let’s get real let’s remember
Everything dies in November
So let’s just take our time
and grab a beer
Relax and don’t worry
Bad things happen when ya hurry
And we don’t plan to find
no trouble here
Here in New Orleans

Whiskey All Over You

–Lyrics– (Choruses in Bold)

All bottled up.
So you reach for a glass.
Bartender grabs me and spins my cap
I’m whiskey……., I’m here to soothe.

The more he pour.
Well the more you laugh.
Dance up a storm
Until the jukebox crash
I’m Whiskey……., I’ll make you move.

When it all goes south
I keep the world goin ’round
I’m whiskey…….

Double shots, with a couple new friends
Start to forget what kind of trouble you’re in.
I’m Whiskey……., I cure the blues

You’re get’n loud, on a rowdy path
Startin to cuss, Lord you never do that.
I’m whiskey….., unfiltered truth.

Open your mouth and spill it out
I’m whiskey……

–Solo–

I’m in your hair
And All over your lap.
Spilt on the floor
And you’re all over the map.
I’m whiskey…., All over you

We don’t black out.
We just have memory lapse.
Drunk dial’n friends
while you wait for a cab
I’m whiskey……, you’ll regret me soon.

Wake up n’ morn, just kissin the throne
I’m whiskey……

— Solo —

They call me jim
Some call me Jack
I mean no harm
But I catch a bad wrap
I’m frisky….., I get you loose.

Charred up , aged
And sour mashed.
Hang around long enough
And we’ll kick some ass.
I’m whiskey, and I got the proof.

Come tomorrow, let’s do it again.
Uncork the evil, Sedate your sin.
Maybe We Lose but Maybe we win
Drinkin whiskey…………

–Solo–

Come tomorrow, let’s do it again.
Uncork the evil, Sedate your sin.
Maybe We Lose but Probly we win
Drinkin whiskey…………

Lyrics:

I think my heart is sleeping
Just like everyone I know
There is a sound in the hallway
but I know nobody’s home
I’m like that smile you’ve been wearin round town
I’m like the fire that keeps you warm
But when you leave me here in pieces
I know I’ll never be alone

I’m done but not leavin
Everything I need for livin
Your love it was number one
I’m tired but not greavin
Everything I need for livin
Your love it was number one

Sometimes I’m lost in reflection
Sometimes everything is wrong
Sometimes every day is a mystery
And sometimes every night’s a song
You’ve got diamonds on your hands and feet
You’ve got my music in your soul
And Every breath I need for livin
Comes in hot and leaves me cold

Your love is hidin in me
Waitin for somethin set me free
I just keep dreaming of the sun
Feels like my like has just begun

Lyrics:

You hold the answer
To what I believe
Quietly holding
My heart on your sleeve
If I were to bend
‘Cause the wind won’t relent
You’re holding me up
From what I intend-ed to be

Don’t let me Drown
Don’t let me Drown
I’m further from ground
Don’t let me drown
alt (but you’re safe and sound)

Thrown from the wreckage
and lost out at sea
calling your name
to come back for me
the sky opens up
and the rains falling down
I feel your presence
But you’re not around

Come back come back
come back for me
The door’s locked up tight
but you have the key

Lyrics & Music by Rob Doty, Colin Clark & Jeff Stigelman

I keep ridin but I can’t catch up
And these old roads won’t give enough
I never knew that I had drifted too far
So I just ride heavy with a broken heart
She spent her summer down in Tennessee
I think that girl took a piece of me
There’s hardly a minute when she crosses my mind
when i don’t feel that I was left behind

And I can’t break down
cause I hate this town
No I can’t break down
cause she’s homeward bound

Well I ain’t never been in love before
I had a taste and I can’t take no more
I drink whiskey on Saturday nights
I drown my sorrows in the neon lights
Fill my hours with dust and smoke
Workin overtime and I’m almost broke
I face the sunshine of another day
She’s been gone since half past May

And I can’t break down
cause I hate this town
No I can’t break down
cause she’s homeward bound

This old dirt that I’ve been livin on
It’s been in the family since ‘51
The clouds seem closer I don’t know why
She says she’s headin home in late july
I ain’t got nothin but this old guitar
Torn-up notebook and a beat-up car
When the Autumn winds start to loosen my slack
It’s starting to look like she ain’t comin back

And I can’t break down
cause I hate this town
No I can’t break down
cause I’m homeward bound
