Workin' for MCA
(ed king - ronnie vanzant)

Seven years of hard luck, comin' down on me
From the florida border, yea up to nashville tennessee
I worked in every joint you can name, mister every honkytonk
Along come mr yankee slicker, sayin' maybe you're what I want

(chorus)
Want you to sign your contract
Want you to sign today
Gonna give you lots of money
Workin' for mca

9000 dollars, that's all we could win
But we smiled at the yankee slicker with a big ol' southern grin
They're gonna take me out to california gonna make me a superstar
Just pay me all of my money and mister maybe you won't get a scar

(chorus)

Suckers took my money since I was seventeen
If it ain't no pencil pusher, it got to be a honkytonk queen
But I'll sign my contract baby, and I wan't you people to know
That every penny that I make, I'm gonna see where my money goes

Preacher Man
(Gary Rossington-Johnny Van Zant-Rickey Medlocke-Hughie Thomasson)

You know i'm dirty because it's in me
Life's not easy
And it's the heart that i won't change
I wouldn't be the same

You see me one day and then the next day
I don't wanna play
I'm not the same dog you have known
It's not written in stone

Well am i right or wrong
Lookin' out for number one
I never stay too long
I'm there and then i'm gone

I'm not the preacher man
Oh can you understand
It's a game of win or lose
I've got an evil eye
You know sometimes i might lie
Oh i'm not the preacher man
Yeah-Yeah-Yeah

Saint was a sinner
Ain't he a winner
And did you hear him say
I didn't lie just as well
It's all in the head
Oh ain't it funny
How little money
Cheap talkin' honey
Can turn a sunny day to gray

Well am i right or wrong
Lookin' out for number one
I never stay too long
I'm there and then i'm gone

I'm not the preacher man
Oh can you understand
It's a game of win or lose
I've got an evil eye
You know sometimes i might lie
Oh i'm not the preacher man

Aah aah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Aah aah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

I'm not the preacher man
Oh can you understand
It's a game of win or lose
I got an evil eye
You know sometimes i might lie
Oh i'm not the preacher man

I'm not the preacher man
Oh can you understand
It's a game of win or lose
I got an evil eye
You know sometimes i might lie
Oh i'm not the preacher man
Aah aah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Aah aah ah ah ah ah ah ah ahback to top
Edge of Forever
(Johnny Van Zant-Rickey Medlocke-Jim Peterik)

I hear rumors flyin
About a head on crash
At the stroke of midnight
When centuries clash
Some gonna party
Some gonna kneel and pray
Well you can quote the bible
Bribe the devil
But there's gonna be some hell to pay

We were young and innocent
Thought this day would never come
And tomorrow seemed a million miles away
Let's look each other in the eyes
And realize it could be time
To set aside our anger
And know we're all the same

Take my hand we're gonna cross the line
To a brand new day on the end of time
We're gonna rise as one or fall together
Out here on the ledge
We're standing on the edge...of forever

From the silence i hear the thunder roll
Words of the prophets echo in my soul
One salvation in the world to me
I know in my heart if we love each other
We can face what's meant to be

Now there's power in the wrong hands
A madman in a foreign land
If we don't get our senses
It's all gonna slip away

Take my hand we're gonna cross the line
To a brand new day on the end of time
We're gonna rise as one and fall together
Out here on the ledge
standing on the edge...of forever

Take my hand we're gonna cross the line
To a brand new day on the end of time
We're gonna rise as one and fall together
Out here on the ledge
standing on the edge
Out here on the ledge
Dancin' on the edge...forever
Oh oh forever oh foreverback to top
