Kid Rock – “Born Free”

January 17, 2019 Leave a comment

Fast, on a rough road riding
High, through the mountains climbing
Twisting, turning further from my home

Young, like a new moon rising
Fierce, through the rain and lightning
Wandering out into this great unknown

And I don’t want no one to cry
But, tell ’em if I don’t survive

I was born free!
I was born free
I was born free, born free

Free, like a river raging
Strong is the wind I’m facing
Chasing dreams and racing Father Time

Deep like the grandest canyon
Wild like an untamed stallion
If you can’t see my heart you must be blind

You can knock me down and watch me bleed
But you can’t keep no chains on me

I was born free!
I was born free
I was born free, born free

And I’m not good at long goodbyes
But look down deep into my eyes
I was born free

Calm, facing danger
Lost, like an unknown stranger
Grateful for my time with no regrets

Close to my destination
Tired, frail and aching
Waiting patiently for the sun to set

And when it’s done, believe that I
Will yell it from that mountain high

I was born free
I was born free
I was born free, born free

And I will bow to the shining seas
And celebrate God’s grace on thee

I was born free

Lynyrd Skynyrd – “Gimme Three Steps”

January 15, 2019 Leave a comment

I was cutting the rug
Down at a place called The Jug
With a girl named Linda Lu
When in walked a man
With a gun in his hand
And he was looking for you know who.
He said, “Hey there fellow,
With the hair colored yellow,
What you tryin’ to prove?
‘Cause that’s my woman there
And I’m a man who cares
And this might be all for you.”I said, “Excuse me.”

I was scared and fearing for my life.
I was shakin’ like a leaf on a tree.
‘Cause he was lean, mean,
Big and bad, Lord,
Pointin’ that gun at me.
Oh “Wait a minute, mister,
I didn’t even kiss her.
Don’t want no trouble with you.
And I know you don’t owe me
But I wish you’d let me
Ask one favor from you.”

“Oh, won’t you give me three steps,
Gimme three steps a-mister,
Gimme three steps towards the door?
Gimme three steps
Gimme three steps a-mister,
And you’ll never see a-me no more
For sure.”

Well the crowd cleared away
And I began to pray
And the water fell on the floor.
And I’m telling you son,
Well, it ain’t no fun
Staring straight down a forty-four.
Well he turned and screamed at Linda Lu
And that’s the break I was looking for.
And you could hear me screaming a mile away
As I was headed out towards the door.

“Oh, won’t you give me three steps,
Gimme three steps a-mister,
Gimme three steps towards the door?
Gimme three steps
Gimme three steps a-mister,
And you’ll never see a-me no more.”

Show me the back door.

Pat Benatar – “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”

January 10, 2019 Leave a comment

Well you’re the real tough cookie
With the long history
Of breaking little hearts
Like the one in me
That’s OK,
Lets see how you do it
Put up your dukes,
Lets get down to it
Hit me with your best shot
Why don’t you hit me
With your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire AwayYou come on with a “come on”
You don’t fight fair
But that’s OK, see if I care
Knock me down, it’s all in vain
I’ll get right back on my feet again

Hit me with your best shot
Why don’t you hit me
With your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Away

Well, you’re the real tough cookie
With the long history
Of breaking little hearts
Like the one in me
Before I put another notch
In my lipstick case
You better make sure
You put me in my place

Hit me with your best shot
Come On, hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Away

Hit me with your best shot
Why don’t you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Away

Led Zeppelin – “Good Times Bad Times”

January 9, 2019 Leave a comment

In the days of my youth, I was told what it means to be a man,
Now I’ve reached that age, I’ve tried to do all those things the best I can.
No matter how I try, I find my way into the same old jam.[Chorus:]
Good Times, Bad Times, you know I’ve had my share;
When my woman left home for a brown eyed man,
Well, I still don’t seem to care.Sixteen, I fell in love with a girl as sweet as could be,
It only took a couple of days ’til she was rid of me.
She swore that she would be all mine and love me till the end,
But when I whispered in her ear, I lost another friend, oooh.

[Chorus]

[Solo]

[Chorus]

I know what it means to be alone, I sure do wish I was at home.
I don’t care what the neighbors say, I’m gonna love you each and every day.
You can feel the beat within my heart.
Realize, sweet babe, we ain’t ever gonna part.

Linda Ronstadt – “Tracks of My Tears”

January 8, 2019 Leave a comment

 

People say I’m the life of the party
‘Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I might be laughing loud and hearty
Deep inside I’m blueSo take a good look at my face
You know my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Oh I need you, need you

Since you left me if you see me with another guy
Looking like I’m having fun
Although he might be cute he’s just a substitute
Because you’re the permanent one

So take a good look at my face
You know my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Outside I’m masquerading
Inside my hope is fading
I’m just a clown since you put me down
My smile is my make-up I wear since my break-up with you

Baby take a good look at my face
You know my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Woah baby take a good look at my face
You know my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
