That's How I Like It
Lynydr Skynyrd - That's How I Like It




WHERE I COME FROM ITS GRITS AND GRAVY NOT CHAMPAGNE CAVIAR
GOT A PICKUP AINT NO MERCEDES THATS WHO WE ARE (WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING)
I AINT NO SAINT SOMETIMES A SINNER AND I CAN'T TELL YOU WHY
BUT I GET UP EVERY MORNIN AND THANK THE MAN ABOVE(OOH MY LIFE IS GOOD)
LIKE MY WOMAN HOT AND MY BEER ICE COLD
REAL FAST CARS AND MY WHISKEY OLD
LIKE A SLOW DRIVE DOWN AN OLD DIRT ROAD
THATS HOW I LIKE IT
TO TURN MY MUSIC WAY UP LOUD
AINT NOTHIN BETTER THAN THE SOUND OF THE CROWD
AMERICAN FLAG IT MAKES ME PROUD
THATS WHY I LIKE IT THATS HOW I LIKE IT.YEAH
AINT NO CELL PHONE TOWERS
YOU WON'T CATCH ME ONLINE
WORKIN WITH MY HANDS FOR HOURS
IS HOW I SPEND MY TIME
AND I STAND IN LINE FOR COFFEE
IT AINT MY CUP A TEA
OUT HERE IN THE COUNTRY WE GOT EVERYTHING WE NEED.OOOH
(REPEAT CHORUS 1)back to top
Pick 'Em Up
Ooooooooo.... Yeah OOOOOOOOO

Well sometimes I lose my direction, And sometimes I jump off track
But when I ride out baby, I can always get back
I need to feel the cool breeze in my face, The rumble of the engines between my legs
Hey little sister, You can color me gone
So if I want to stay out all night long, You can't stop me from running wild
Yeah don't worry how long I'm gone, I'll come back every once and a while

I pick 'em up, I lay 'em all down
I never like my feet, to ever hit the ground
Don't miss me when I'm gone, Cause I'll be around
I'm a free spirit baby pick me up and lay me on down

That's right. Wooo

Well I know I got a good life, Jim Beam, And women, They treat me right
I make my own rules, Like it or not
Now don't misunderstand me baby, I give it every once and a while
Well it's tough love honey, But I'll leave you with a smile
So if I want to stay out all night long, You can't stop me from running wild
Now don't worry how long I'm gone, I'll come back every once and a while

I pick 'em up, I lay 'em all down
I never like my feet, to ever hit the ground
Don't miss me when I'm gone, Cause I'll be around
I'm a free spirit baby pick me up and lay me on down

I've been here, I've been there, I've been everywhere
I wouldn't tell you no lies
and just like me you're a wild one, Won't you take me for a ride

I pick 'em up, and lay 'em all down
I never like my feet, to ever hit the ground
Don't miss me when I'm gone, Cause I'll be around
I'm a free spirit baby pick me up and lay me on down
Yeah I'm a free spirit baby pick me up and lay me on down

You got to lay me on down, Yes you do
I'm a free spirit, Oh you know you are Johnny
Oooooooh That's what I am Ooooooohback to top
Dead Man Walkin'
MMMMmmmmmm...
Hahaaa...
Let me tell you a story...

Outside of Macon off a country road
Justice was forsaken when they let the wrong man go
Johnny Law was shady first one on the scene
They called it murder in the first degree

Dead man walkin', walkin' down the hall
Judge says guilty but still he's standin' tall
Dead man walkin' they say he broke the law
Takin' the life of another man who done his daughter wrong

Light 'em up, lay 'em down
Take 'em out but there's more of us around
When wrong is right and right is wrong
Oh there's a dead man walkin' tonight
Walk on...
Walk on...
Walk on...

OOOOOOOOOoooo...

If I ask you a question, would you tell the truth
Would you pull the triger if you were standin' in his shoes
Dead man walkin' I know what I'd do
If someone hurt my baby I'd be walkin' too

Light 'em up, oh lay 'em down
Take 'em out but there's more of us around
When right is wrong and wrong is right
Oh there's a dead man walkin' tonight

Walk on...
You gotta walk on baby
Walk on...
Ooohh...
You gotta walk on baby
Walk on...

OOOOOoooooooo...

Yeah...
So if I ask you that question, would you tell the truth?
Ahaha...Dead man walkin'
MMMMMmmmmm...back to top
The Way
Well the sun don't shine where it used to
And the angels are hidin' their heads
People don't listen to their hearts anymore
Seems the good men all are dead
There ain't no right, wrong, no in between
That ain't the constitution that they wrote for me
Got our heads stuck in somethin' overseas
Standin' ass deep in hypocracy

OOOoooOOooooOOOOooooo...

Well I found myself out on the open road
Heading out into the desert
Lookin' for another world that's waitin' on me
That none of us can see
I keep thinkin' to myself as I move along
Where do we all come from
Is there religion or another dimension
Another place and time yeah....

OOOooooo...

When my life is over and done
Finally made my way through it
Another life has just begun
Is this the way you do it
Oh the way...

OOOooooo...

Lookin' in the eyes of the man on the moon
He's starin' down at me
Wondering what he's thinkin' and if he knows
Please let me see

Life is like an open door we're all walkin' through
Do you know the answers, no one knows the truth
Until we pass on through

When my life is over and done
Finally made my way through it
Another life has just begun
Is this the way to it

OOOOOOoooooo...

Walkin' on the world upside down
It keeps spinnin' round and round
World upside down
I'm so tired of all this bullshit goin' down
Finally made my way through it
When my life is over and done
Is this the way you do it
When my life is over and done
Finally made my way through it
Another life has just begun
This is the way you do it
Oh the way...
This is the way you do it
Oh the way...back to top
Red White and Blue
We don't have no plastic L.A. Frynds,
Ain on the edge of no popular trend.
Ain't never seen the inside of that magazine GQ.
We don't care if you're a lawyer, or a Texas oil man,
Or some waitress busting ass in some liquor stand.
If you got Soul
We hang out with people just like you

My hair's turning white,
My neck's always been red,
My collar's still blue,
We've always been here
Just trying to sing the truth to you.
Yes you could say
We've always been
Red, White, and Blue

Ride our own bike to Sturgis
We pay our own dues,
Smoking camels, drinking domestic blues
You want to know where I have been
Just look at myhands
Yeah, I've driven by the White House,
Spent some time in jail.
Momma cried but she still wouldn't pay my bail.
I ain't been no angelm
But even God, he understands.

My hair's turning white,
My neck's always been red,
My collar's still blue,
We've always been here
Just trying to sing the truth to you.
Yes you could say
We've always been,
Red, White, and Blue

My Daddy worked hard, and so have I,
Paid out taxes and gave our lives
To serve this great country
So what are they complaining about

Yeah we love our families, we love our kids
You know it is love that makes us all so rich
That's where we're at
If they don't like it they can just
Get the HELL out!

Yeah!

My hair's turning white,
My neck's always been red,
My collar's still blue,
We've always been here
Just trying to sing the truth to you.
Yes you could say
We've always been,
Red, White, and Blue

Oh..oh..Red, White, and Blue....

Red, White, and Blue

Oh..oh....Red, White, and Blueback to top
Sweet Mama
Here we go...
C'mon...

I was raised on the west side Shanty Town
I didn't get up 'til the sun went down
When your backs against the wall you better get tough
I learned real quick how to swing and duck

I was born in the sweet hot Florida sunshine
Good lookin' women backwoods and moonshine
Learned more about life on the streets than in the school
Sweet Mama didn't raise no fool (no she didn't)

Hahahaha...
Ooooohhh...

Some folks cheat and some folks lie
I can judge a man by the look in his eyes
So don't hand me Jack and try to call it Cola
I know the difference 'tween shit and shinola

I was born in the sweet hot Florida sunshine
Good lookin' women backwoods and moonshine
Learned more about life on the streets than in the school
Sweet Mama didn't raise no fool (no she didn't)

Play it boys..
MMmmHhmmm...

Mama was no angel when she taught me right from wrong
She knew every single note and every word in every single song
She taught me how to gamble and how to roll the dice
If it makes you feel good DO IT don't think twice

I was born in the sweet hot Florida sunshine
Good lookin' women backwoods and moonshine
Learned more about life on the streets than in the school
Sweet Mama didn't raise no fool

I was born in the sweet hot Florida sunshine
Good lookin' women backwoods and moonshine
Learned more about life on the streets than in the school
Sweet Mama didn't raise no fool (noooooo...)

Talkin' 'bout Mama
Ooooh I'm tellin' ya sheee...
Talkin' 'bout sweet, sweet sweet Mama
Talkin' 'bout sweet sweet sweet, sweet sweet Mama
Talkin' 'bout sweet sweet sweet, sweet sweet Mama
Talkin' 'bout sweeeeeeeeeet Mamaback to top
All Funked Up
Oooohhh....

Ahhhhhhhhh....

Tornados spinnin', I sit here grinnin'
I think we've all seen this movie before
This is confusin', almost amusin'
It's hard to tell up and down anymore
When did it get so crazy, how did we lose control
Everybodies shouting, how bad it really sucks

Situation normal
All funked up, We're all funked up

We had some leaders, and they were cheaters
But they came out smelling like a rose
We should reject them, but we respect them
For what they do when the door is closed
Nothing in this world a simple man can do
Stand up and be counted, ain't you had enough

Situation normal
All funked up, Yeah we're all funked up
We're funtionally disfuntional
We're funtionally yeah disfuntional
We're all funked up

Uuughh....

Don't you know the meaning of the word snafu
Better known as trouble for me and you
Murphy's law will get ya, he's on his way
Same ol' same ol' shit a different day

Uuughh....
Oh...

Tornados spinnin', I sit here grinnin'
I think we've all seen this movie before
This is confusin', almost amusin'
It's hard to tell up and down anymore
Everybodies shouting, how bad it really sucks

Situation normal
All funked up, we're all funked up...
We're all funked up...
We're all funked up...

Hell or Heaven
Mama used to say to me, you can make your destiny
Keep your feet planted on the ground
You can always get it back, make a castle from a one room shack
It's all of what you make of what you've found
Son you're gonna find out when you're older
There's always been the hand of god restin' right there on your shoulder

Will it be hell or heaven on earth
The choice is up to you
Look to the sky, the answer is clear
Are you gonna, live life for all it's worth
Choose hell, or heaven on earth
If you live it right, there's nothing to fear
'Cause you'll find heaven right here

Saw a man the other day, had it made in every way
Till his greed brought him down
He was blinded by the city lights, now he shivers in the cold tonight
Who will save the lifeguard when he's about to drown

Will it be hell or heaven on earth
The choice is up to you
Look to the sky, the answer is clear
Are you gonna, live life for all it's worth
Choose hell, or heaven on earth
If you live it right, there's nothing to fear
'Cause you'll find heaven right here

You know you're gonna walk through fire
You know your gonna feel the pain
Oh you're gonna lose, if you want to win the game
And everytime your heart is breakin'
And everytime your faith is shaken
Remember what mama said... Oh that day...

Hope when my time has come
I've left enough to build upon
Ain't no one gonna say I didn't try
Here's why...

Hell or heaven on earth
The choice is up to you
Look to the sky, the answer is clear
Are you gonna, live life for all it's worth
Choose hell, or heaven on earth
If you live it right, there's nothing to fear
'Cause you'll find heaven right here
You'll find heaven right here Oooohhh..
You'll find heaven right here Oooohhh..

Crawl
Your love does something to me that I can't describe
Dark eyes see right through me and I just can't hide
You drive me crazy with what you don't say and the way you hold back love
Tell me tell me won't you please please tell me
Need an answer from above
There you are, You're my desire, and here I am
I'd be a liar if I said...

I ain't gonna crawl
You ain't gonna nail my heart to the wall
You ain't gonna find me crying like a child just asking for it all
I ain't gonna beg, I'd rather lose it all instead
If that is what it takes to get you Part of me just might let you
For someone like you, I'd do more than fall
I just might crawl

Seems like I get this feelin' this time of night
Head down senses reeling, something just ain't right
Imagination locked up inside and it's got nowhere to go
I see my lover through anothers eyes
And it's killing me to know the truth
Like playing with fire To lose you
I'd be a liar if I said...

I ain't gonna crawl
You ain't gonna nail my heart to the wall
You ain't gonna find me crying like a child just asking for it all
I ain't gonna beg, I'd rather lose it all instead
If that is what it takes to get you, Part of me just might let you
For someone like you, I'd do more than fall
I just might crawl

I ain't gonna crawl
You ain't gonna nail my heart to the wall
You ain't gonna find me crying like a child just asking for it all
I ain't gonna beg, I'd rather lose it all instead
If that is what it takes to get you, Part of me just might let you

Life's Lessons
MMMMMmmmmmm...

I listen, and still I haven't heard
Tell me what is the word
And if I ever heard it would it be clear as water
Oh tears run down your face
Reflects the human race
We're all caught up with winnin' losin time and space

Life's lessons
So you think you know it all
But you're headin' for a fall
Ooh to make it back again
You'll have to crawl and step back
Take a look around
Are your feet still on the ground
Can we find you in the section of lost and found

Never think you got it figured out
'Cause when you do you begin to doubt
It's time for you to open your eyes

Will we look back and see what we've done
Will we be proud or ashamed of what we've become
Will we realize we all share one fate
Or is this another life's lesson... Too late

OOohhh...

Never think you've got it figured out
'Cause when you do you begin to doubt

Lucky Man
MMMMMmmmmMMMMMmmm....

Well it took so long for me to realize
That my destiny was right before my eyes
If it were up to me to travel through this life
I'd find an open space for me to live out all my dreams

I'm such a lucky man, I try to be a stronger man
I shed a tear or two but that don't make me a weaker man
It's made me a better man, I've given all I can
To a world that sometimes thinks that I'm a lesser man

I remember all the things I've been through
Gave myself to all those people I once knew
I'm such a lucky man

I'd like to thank you for the times that you have been with me
I hope it meant as much to you to share these memories
There's a guiding light that always seems to shine on me
If I did it again I'd be happy 'til the end

I'm a lucky man, I try to be a stronger man
I shed a tear or two but that don't make me a weaker man
It's made me a better man, I've given all I can
To a world that sometimes thinks that I'm a lesser man

I remember all the things I've been through
Gave myself to all those people I once knew
I'm such a lucky man

It's right here in the moonlight...

Whooooooooohhhoooooohhhh
I'm a lucky man, I try to be a stronger man
I shed a tear or two but that don't make me a weaker man
It's made me a better man, I've given all I can
To a world that sometimes thinks that I'm a lesser man
I'm a lucky man

Gimme Back My Bullets
(allen collins -- ronnie vanzant)

Life is so strange when it's changin', yes indeed
Well I've seen the hard times and the pressure's been on me
But I keep on workin' like the workin' man do
And I've got my act together, gonna walk all over you

(chorus)
Gimme back my bullets
Put 'em back where they belong
Ain't foolin' around 'cause I done had my fun
Ain't gonna see no more damage done
Gimme back my bullets

Sweet talkin' people done ran me out of town
And I drank enough whiskey to float a battleship around
But I'm leavin' this game one step ahead of you
And you will not hear me cry 'cause I do not sing the blues

(chorus)
Gimme back my bullets
Put 'em back where they belong
Ain't foolin' around 'cause I done had my fun
Ain't gonna see no more damage done
Gimme back, gimme back my bullets
Oh, put 'em back... where they belong

Been up and down since I turned seventeen
Well I've been on top, and then it seems I lost my dream
But I got it back, I'm feelin' better everyday
Tell all those pencil pushers, better get out of my way

(chorus)
Gimme back my bullets
Put 'em back where they belong
Ain't foolin' around, 'cause I done had my fun
Ain't gonna see no more damage done
Gimme back, gimme back my bullets
Oh put 'em back where they belong
Gimme back my bulletsback to top
