Pop a Top
(chorus)
Pop a top again
I've just got time for one more round
Set 'em up my friend
Then I'll be gone
And you can let some other fool sit down

I'ld like for you to listen to
A joke I heard today
From a woman who
Said she was through
And calmly walked away
I tried to smile
And did awhile
But it felt so out of place
Did you ever hear of a clown with teardrops
Streamin' down his face

(chorus)

Home for me is misery
And here I'm wastin' time
'cause a row of fools
On a row of stools
Is not what's on my mind
But then you see
Her leaving me
Is not what I prefer
So it's either here just drinkin' beer
Or home remembering her

(chorus)back to top
Farewell Party
When the last breath of life, is gone, from my body,
And my lips, are as cold, as the sea,
When my friends, gather round, for my, farewell party,
Won't you, pretend, you love me.

There'll be flowers, from those, who'll cry, when I go,
And leave you, in this, ole world alone,
I know, you'll have fun, at my, farewell party,
I know, you'll be glad, when I'm gone.

Don't be, mad at me, for wanting, to keep you,
Till my life, on this, ole world is through,
You'll be free, at the end, of my, farewell party,
But i'll, go away, loving you.

There'll be flowers, from those, who'll cry, when I go,
And leave you, in this, ole world alone,
I know, you'll have fun, at my, farewell party,
I know, you'll be glad, when I'm gone.

Oh I know, you'll be glad, when I'm gone.back to top
Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'
Kiss an angel good mornin

Whenever a chance to meet some old friends on the street
They wonder how does a man get to be this way
I always got a smileing face any time and any place
And everytime they ask me why
I just smile and say

You've got to kiss angel good mornin
And let her know you think about her when your gone
So kiss an angel good mornin
And love her like the devil when you get back home

Now people may guess the secret of happeniness
Some of them never learn
It's a simple thing
The secret I'm speaking of
Is a woman and a man in love
And the anwser is in this song that I always sing

You got to kiss an angel good mornin
And let her know you think about her when your gone
So kiss an angel good mornin
And love her like the devil when you get back home

Kiss an angel good mornin
And let her know you think about her when your gone
So kiss an angel good mornin
And love her like the devil when you get back home.back to top
Right in the Palm of Your Hand
A willing woman
A willing man
A five room house
And a wedding band
Believe us believe us
Once it begins
You know it don't take long
Til like two people in a heartbreak song
I wonder I wonder well

Ain't it just like a woman
And ain't it just like a man
Chasin the rainbow and looking for love
When it's right in the palm of my hand
When it's right in the palm of your hand

Can't take back those things we said
So we watch it pass in seperate beds
Changing were changing too little love and too much pride
You won't give in and neither will I like children children

Well ain't it just like a woman
And ain't it just like a man
Chasing the rainbow and looking for love
When it's right in the palm of your hand
When it's right in the palm of your hand

Feet on the floor holding my head
Sitting alone on the side of the bed thinking thinking
Trying to find where we went wrong
I just turned around and you were gone it's over it's over

Well ain't it just like a woman
And ain't it just like a man
Chasing the rainbow and looking for love
When it's right in the palm of your hand and

Ain't it just like a woman
And ain't it just like a man
Chasing the rainbow and looking for love
When it's right in the palm of your hand
When it's right in the palm of your handback to top
The Blues Man (A Tribute to Hank Williams Jr.)
He's just a singer
A natural-born guitar ringer
Kind of clinger
To sad ole songs.

He's not a walk behinder
He's a new note finder
But his name's a reminder
Of a blues man that's already gone.

So he started drinkin
Took some things that messed up his thinkin
He was surely sinkin
When she came along.

He was alone in the hot lights
Not too much left in sight
But she changed all that in one night
When she sang him this song

Hey baby I love you
Hey baby I need you
Hey baby you don't need to prove to me
That you're some kind of macho man
You've wasted so much of your life
Runnin through the dark night
Let me shine some love light
Down on this blues man.

He was so sick from speedin
All that stuff they said he was needin
If he was to keep pleasin
All of his fans

He got cuffed on dirt roads
He got sued over no shows
But she took all that ole load
Down off this blues man.

Hey baby I love you too
Hey baby I need you
Hey baby I do get tired
Of this travellin band

I'm over 40 years old now
Nights would be cold now
If you hadn't stuck it out
For this blues man

I'm over 40 years old now
Nights would be cold now
If you hadn't stuck it out
For this blues manback to top
Revenooer Man
[Johnny Paycheck}


Well I was sent to a place in North Carolina
To check up on a moonshine
Still when I got there to my suprise
I could see a little light on the hill
Well the fire was glowing and really I was knowing I was really hot on the track
But in D.C. they said it couldnt' be
But I'll be the one to bring em back

Cause I'm a revenooer man
I'm a revenooer man
I got a badage in my pocket
And a gun on my hip
And them moonshiners
Better never make a slip
Cause I'm a revenooer man

Yeah I get em if I can
Well the moon was shining bright
As I looked down the river
I noticed on the side of the hill
I can see a red light that was glowing bright
I knew it had to be a still
Well the people down the road said it wasn't far
But I better know someone
Cause when the moonshiners know I carry a star
I'll bet my bottom dollar I'll have em on the run

Cause I'm a revenooer man
Yeah I'm a revenooer man
I got a badge in my pocket
And a gun on my hip
Them moonshiners better never make a slip
Cause I'm a revenooer man
Yeah i'll get em if I can

Well when I got back the woods were bare
Must've knew I was on my way
Well I heard the branches shatter
And they started to scatter
I heard two or three of them say
It's the revenooer man
It's revenooer man
He's got a big 45 and loads to fill
Dragging and shagging to another hill
It's the revenooer man
And he'll get us if he can
Yeah I'm the revenooer man
And I'll get them if I can.back to top
My Own Kind of Hat
Cowboys and outlaws, right guys and south-paws
Good dogs and all kinds of cats.
Dirt roads and white lined, and all kinds of stop signs
I'll stand right here where I'm at
'cause I wear my own kind of hat.
There's two kinds of lovers, two kinds of brothers
Two kinds of babies to hold.
There's two kinds of cherries, two kinds of fairies
Two kinds of mothers I'm told...............I'm told
Cowboys and outlaws, right guys and south-paws
Good dogs and all kinds of cats.
Dirt roads and white lines and all kinds of stop signs
I'll stand right here where I'm at
Cause I wear my own kind of hat.
There's two kinds of brother, two kinds of lovers
Two kinds of babies to hold
There's two kinds of cherries, two kinds of fairies
Two kinds of mothers I'm told .............. I'm told

She Just Started Liking Cheatin' Songs
She just started liking cheatin songs
And what's bothering me
I don't know if its the cheatin' she likes
Or just the melody


I've never had any reason to doubt her
As far as i know she's been true
But lately she's had a different look in her eyes
I wonder if she's seein somebody new

You can't blame a body for lookin
When there's a world of people out there
But I hope that she's not takin any closer looks
I tell ya lately frankly i've been scared


Chorus:
Cuz she just started liking cheatin' songs
And what's bothering me
I don't know if its the cheatin' she likes
Or just the melody

I've got to admit I do some looking too
But she's the only one I love
She still tells me she loves me
But I wonder if my love's enough

Chorus:

Cuz she just started liking cheatin' songs
And what's bothering me
I don't know if its the cheatin' she likes
Or just the melody

Yeah she just started liking cheatin' songs
And what's bothering me
I don't know if its the cheatin' she likes
Or just the melody

Yeah I don't know if its the cheatin' she likes
or just the melodyback to top
The Way I Am
Wish I were down, on some blue batou
With a bamboo cane stuck in the sand
But the road I'm on, don't seem to go there
So I just dream, keep on being the way I am

Wish I enjoyed, what makes my living
And what I do, with a willing hand
Some would run, but that ain't like me
So, I just dream, keep on being the way I am

Chorus
The way I am, don't fit my shackles
The way I am, reality
I can almost see, that bobber dancin'
So,i just dream, keep on being the way I am

Chorus

Yeah, I just dream, and keep on being the way I amback to top
It Must Be Love
First I get cold and hot
Think I'm on fire, but I'm not.
Oh, what a pain I've got,
It must be love!

There's nothing I can do,
All that I want is you.
Look what I'm going through,
It must be love!

It must be love, it must be love.
I fall like a sparrow and fly like a dove.
You must be the dream I been dreaming of,
Oh what a feeling, it must be love!

Something is wrong or right,
I think of you all night.
Can't sleep 'til morning light,
It must be love!

Seeing you in my dreams,
Holding you close to me.
Oh, what else can it be?
It must be love!

It must be love, it must be love.
I fall like a sparrow and fly like a dove.
You must be the dream I been dreaming of
Oh what a feeling, it must be love.back to top
Once You've Had the Best
I'm so glad to have you back within these arms of mine
I can finally go to sleep and get some rest
Never once did I think of finding someone new
'Cause there's nothing better, once you've had the best

You're the very thing they sing about in love songs
And one mistake don't mean you've failed the test
As I lay beside you softly sleeping this I know,
There's nothing better, once you've had the best

Within your arms, I've had the best
And I think the world should know
I don't care what you've said or done
I'll always love you so
You've got more love in your little finger, than all the rest
And there's nothing better, once you've had the best

Within your arms, I've had the best
And I think the world should know
I don't care what you've said or done
I'll always love you so
You've got more love in your little finger, than all the rest
And there's nothing better, once you've had the best

No there's nothing better, once you've had the bestback to top
Margaritaville
Nibblin' on sponge cake
Watchin' the sun bake
All of those tourists covered in oil
Strummin' my six-string
On my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp hey they're beginnin' to boil

Chorus:
Wasted away again in margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
But I know it's nobody's fault

I don't know the reason
I stayed here all season
Nothin' to show but this brand new tattoo
But it's a real beauty
A mexican cutie
How it got here I haven't a clue

Chorus:
Wasted away again in margaritaville
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
Now I think
Must be buffet's fault

I blew out my flip-flop
Stepped on a pop-top
Broke my leg twice I had to limp on back home
But there's booze in the blender
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on
Hang on

Wasted away again in margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
But I know this is all alan's fault
Yes and some people claim that there's a woman to blame
And I know it's our own damn faultback to top
