The Horizontal Bop
Words and music by bob seger

Wally's getting' anxious thinkin' 'bout tonight
Bruce is all spiffy lookin' wicked lookin' right
Eddie's getting' spruced
And donna's getting' loose
Theyre passin' round the bottle
And they're gettin' good and juiced
B.g.'s winin' dinin' checkin' talent at the club
Skippers hauntin' second lookin' forward to his rub
The busters from the country
And the hitters from the shop
Everybody wants to do the horizontal bop

Someone bring the records
Someone get the brew
Someone get a house
Buddy we'll know what to do
Someone tell the ladies
Someone make a deal
If we can't find a house
Then someone better find a field

Grass is good as carpet
Anyplace is fine
Its time to get to rockin'
Babe it's time to make it shine
Tell 'em we'll be dancin'
Dancin' till we drop
It's time to get down and do the horizontal bop

Theyre fillin' up the corners
Theyre fillin' up the streets
You can feel the tension
You can almost feel the heat
The music's gettin' louder
The beat's gittin' fast
Summers finally made it
Yeah it's finally here at last

The pony cars are cruisin' on woodward avenue
Go and try to pass'em
They'll smoke you if you do
The whole town's shakin' from the bottom to the top
Everybody wants to do the horizontal bop
The busters from the country
And the hitters from the shop
Everybody wants to do the horizontal bop
Tell 'em we'll be dancin'
Dancin' till we drop
Everybody wants to do the horizontal bopback to top
You'll Accomp'ny Me
A gypsy wind is blowing warm tonight
The sky is starlit and the time is right
And still you're tellin' me you have to go
Before you leave there's something you should know
Yeah, something you should know babe

I've seen you smiling in the summer sun
I've seen you long hair flying when you run
I've made my mind up that it's meant to be
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me

Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Out where the rivers meet the sounding sea
You're high above me now, you're wild and free, ah but
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me, yeah

Some people say that love's a losin' game
You start with fire but you lose the flame
The ashes smolder but the warmth's soon gone
You end up cold and lonely on your own

I'll take my chances babe I'll risk it all
I'll win your love or I'll take the fall
I've made my mind up girl it's meant to be
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me

It's written down somewhere, it's got to be
You're high above me flyin' wild and free
Oh but someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me

Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Out where the rivers meet the sounding sea
I feel it in my soul, it's meant to be
Oh someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me

You will accomp'ny me....back to top
Her Strut
Words and music by bob seger

She's totally committed
To major independence
But she's a lady through and through
She gives them quite a battle
All that they can handle
She'll bruise some
She'll hurt some too
But oh they love to watch her strut
Oh they do respect her but
They love to watch her strut

Sometimes they'll want to leave her
Just give up and leave her
But they would never play that scene
In spite of all her talking
Once she starts in walking
The lady will be all they ever dreamed
Oh they'll love to watch her strut
Oh they'll kill to make the cut
They love to watch her strut

Yeah love to watch her strut
Watch her strutback to top
No Man's Land
Words and music by bob seger

Headin' in or headin' out
Standing on the shore
Pause a moment to reflect
Which trip costs you more
Between the ever restless crowds

And the silence of your room
Spend an hour in no man's land
You'll be leaving soon

Victims come and victims go
There's always lots to spare

One victim lives the tragedy
One victim stops to stare

And still another walks on by
Pretending not to see
They're all out there in no man's land
Cause it's the safest place to be

But sanctuary never comes
Without some kind of risk
Illusions without freedom

Never quite add up to bliss
The haunting and the haunted
Play a game no one can win
The spirits come at midnight

And by dawn they're gone again
And so it seems our destiny
To search and never rest
To ride that ever changing wave
That never seems to crest
To shiver in the darkest night
Afraid to make a stand
And then go back and do our time
Out there in no man's landback to top
Long Twin Silver Line
Words and music by bob seger

Well the big train keeps on rolling
Rolling on down the track
And the way she's moving buddy
I don't believe she's a-coming back

The fireman's smoking a big cigar
Sipping lafite rothschild bordeaux
And the engineer's so happy
He's just a-letting that whistle blow

She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling on proud and fine
She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling
Down that long twin silver line

Well she just blazed through chicago
Nonstop to l.a.
And the way she's steaming buddy
You better not get in her way
She's got the finest fastest pulling twin diesels
She's got ninety three cars in tow
She's gonna be on time
All the way down the line
Come the rain hail sleet or snow

She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling on right on time
She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling
Down that long twin silver line
Rolling on down the line
And she just passed in chicago
Rolling into kansas too
Rolling into denver
Doing all she'll do
And she hangs a big left in salt lake city

Southwest to the nevada line
Rolling into california
Right on time
Rolling on down the lineback to top
Against the Wind
Words and music by bob seger

It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely, she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio playlng low
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
Till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove

And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin'
Against the wind

And the years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded bv stranners I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home
And I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worried about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searchin'
Searching for shelter again and again
Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind

Well those drifters days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
Well I'm older now and still
Against the windback to top
Good for Me
Words and music by bob seger

She's no good at being phony
She never tells a good lie
She knows just when to let me be
She always knows when I'm too high
She's never out in front of me
Or way too for
Too for behind
She's always right beside me
Right in the good place all the time
She's so good for me
So good for me
She's so good for me

Good for me yeah
Oh, and when I call her at midnight
Oh, the lady she knows just what to say
She says the words I long to hear
Oh yeah,'couse that's her way
She knows just what to say
To make me want to stay 'cause that's her way

She's good for me
Oh, so good for me
She's sure enough good for me yeah
So good so good so good she's so good for me oh yeah
She's so good for me
Oh the lady
She's so good for me
Good for meback to top
Betty Lou's Gettin' Out Tonight
Have you heard the news

It's all over town

If you ain't heard it boys

You better sit down


I got the story here

It's hot off the press

Brace yourself now

And take a deep breath

Grob a hold of something

Hold on tight

Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight


First heard the rumor down on 12th and Main


The poor druggist he was going insane

His stuff is selling out like never before

He finally had to up and close the store


All the boys were getting ready to fight

Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight

Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight

Betty Lou's gettin' out tonight

She was bad

Her momma got mad

But now her momma said it's all right

All the boys are getting ready and right

Betty Lou's gettin'out tonight


Betty Lou

Betty Lou

It's all true

It's really true

What do you think about that boysback to top
Fire Lake
Words and music by bob seger

Who's gonna ride that chrome three wheeler
Who's gonna make that first mistake
Who wants to wear those gypsy leathers
All the way to fire lake
Who wants to break the news about uncle joe
You remember uncle joe
He was the one afraid to cut the cake
Who wants to tell poor aunt sarah
Joe's run off to fire lake
Joe's run off to fire lake

Who wants to brave those bronze beauties
Lying in the sun
With their long soft hair falling
Flying as they run
Oh they smile so shy
And they flirt so well
And they lay you down so fast
Till you look straight up and say
Oh lord
Am I really here at lost

Who wants to play those eights and aces
Who wants a raise
Who needs a stake
Who wants to take that long shot gamble
And head out to fire lake
Head out
Who wants to go to fire lake
And head out
Who wants to go to fire lake
Head out
Out to fire lake
Who's gonna do itback to top
Shinin' Brightly
Words and music by bob seger

Well, it's shinin' brightly
It's lookin' pretty right
From the early morning
Till real real late at night
It's lookin'pretty good today
The dark clouds are rollin' away
Oh and it's shinin' brightly
And I think it's gonna be okay

Well, it's startin' to feet good again
You and me
Startin'to feel real good lady
Just the way it used to be
Futures lookin' good at last
Rough times are all in the post
Oh and it's shinin' brightly
And I think it's gonna last
I think it's gonna last
Oh yeah

Well, it's shinin' brightly
I don't think there's too much doubt
This time baby
I think we got it all worked out
Lookin' pretty good today
The dark clouds are rollin' away
And it's shinin' brightly
I think we're on our way
Its a nice change
Feeling pretty good at last
Rough times are all in the post
Oh, and it's shinin' brightly
I think it's gonna last
Oh, it's gonna be okay
