JAMES ADDISON HUNTER JR (BMI)
"Jimmy Hunter"
(professional stage name)
is a Los Angeles based
singer / songwriter / drummer / producer
vocalist / vocal coach
"CAZADOR Recording" studio owner.
FYI - Over 5,000 songs have been produced by Hunter
at CAZADOR since 1986!!!


Jimmy aka "Jimbo"
was born in the famous NASCAR town
of Martinsville, Virginia on December 16th, 1950.
As a child,
he also lived in Richmond and Roanoke, Virginia.
When Jimmy was 10, his family moved
to the little town of Flushing, Michigan
which is just outside of Flint.
A few years later, after his parents got divorced,
Jimmy relocated as a teenager to Detroit, Michigan.
Barely out of high school, Hunter ended up
a top professional Detroit area drummer
and eventually moved to Los Angeles
at age 25 in 1975 to drum for keyboardist
Ray Manzarek RIP of The Doors'
mid 70's Supergroup, NITE CITY in 1976.


This country-rock music song collection
is Jimmy's way of lyrically expressing
the life he remembers
as these songs revisit his times of growing up
spending summers and holidays
in rural Surry County, Virginia
around his grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins
in a music character he portrays who he calls
"Buffalo Jimbo."
Hunter skillfully blends his brand
of unique country influenced stylings
with his Blues, Motown and Rock 'n' Roll experience,
sensibilities and nuances.
We hope you will find these "Jimbo" tunes
to possess a sound and flavor which is all his own
and it will take a tug on the heartstrings
of both his new listeners and many die-hard fans.


Jimmy Hunter
is a CERTIFIED DOUBLE PLATINUM
credited and awarded songwriter
of his song "Rudy"
on "The Very Best Of CHER" album (2013)
which was originally recorded
on her "I Paralyze" album (1982).

VERSE 1
I go early to bed - I'm the first to rise
Kiss my wife 'fore she opens her eyes

Try'na make ends meet - gotta stay on top
Yeah . . . just another country day

B SECTION 1
Another sunny mornin' - big temptation
Box o' bait at the old gas station - plenty o' line . . .
Six beers with my cousin - two before lunch
Jerky and rinds in case I need to munch 'fo suppa time
(I got an attitude o' gratitude)

CHORUS 1
I just wanna thank You for another country day
The fish are flyin' out the pond and my barn is full o' hay
Take the day off if I want to . . .
Mend a fence can always wait
Lord, I thank You for another country day

VERSE 2
You may not like the way I live my life
My redneck style and my strong advice
Bet you get over it soon
Easy does it . . . it's just my country ways
(another country day)
I wear a tattered t-shirt with a hole in my jeans
But I got out of bed, an' put-em on and they're clean
Yeah . . . every country day (every day)

B SECTION 2
Another sunny mornin' - on the radio station
I turn it up LOUD cuz it's a free nation
(or so I've been told) . . .
Some of the folks 'round here
'Bout as real as they come
Can't please 'em all but I'm friends with some
And I'm thankful for that . . . Oh Lord!

CHORUS 2
I just wanna thank You for another country day
The fish are flyin' out the pond and my barn is full o' hay
Take the day off if I want to . . .
Mend a fence can always wait
Lord, I thank You for another country day

I thank you for everything
For my friends and family
Thank you for the USA and all that keeps us free
Can't get enough - get enough . . .
I can't get enough country days

SOLO (Paul Tokarz)

. . . Ooooo Lord!

CHORUS 3
I just wanna thank You for another country day
The fish are flyin' out the pond and my barn is full o' hay

Mend a fence can always wait
Lord, I thank You for another country day
Lord, I thank You for another country day
(This day is 'bout as good as it gets "right cheer")

With a high heel strut that can turn a head an' then some
Like a hurricane tearin' up d'swamp
A big easy howl all the way to Baton Rouge. . . yeah

When that squeeze box starts to pump

On a thing called the Swamp Stomp

A girl like that'll walk all over you

An' dippin' those toes in the Mississippi mud

Creole Blues and some bayou crawdaddy . . .

Shot of bourbon fire fly

She tried to take me for a roll- HUH!. . .
That girl was messin' with my head
Playin with my soul . . .ohhhhh OW!

When that squeeze box starts to pump

VERSE 1
Honey you're the kind 'o girl that gets on my last nerve
You testin' all my patience when my tank's on reserve
Just when I'm feelin' like a quitin' us week after week
You love me so strong
You make me turn the other cheek

B SECTION 1

Cuz you're too much... Baby you're too much
Lucky for you girl... too much is what I like

VERSE 2
Well - every other day - seems like we go to the mat

I'll admit that I'm addicted - your my little love drug
But we can't take our issues
And just sweep'em under the rug

You just drop the damn mic
You're too much...

SOLO
Will Logsdon

And that's what I like yeah

VERSE 3
Now we might have a clean shot
If we put our heads together
And give it one more try

So that's why I'm here to make a one final plea

Now we can talk this out or we can keep on fussin'

VERSE 1
Is your butt gettin' jealous of all the crap
Comin' out a your mouth o' yours lately?
Askin' me where you been, who you hangin' out with
Aint' no rhyme or reason to be hatin' on me

B SEC 1
Now if you start thinkin' when my cell phone's ringin'
Somebody's standing in the wings
Bet you don't know what's been on my mind
It's time to tell you a couple o' things

CHORUS 1
I could'n care less - I could'n care less
If you're in the back yard in those Daisy Duke's
Or rockin' that little red party dress
I could'n care less - I could'n care less
Whether ya rollin' in your daddy's ol' puddle jump truck
Or layin' in my bed half dressed
Only you know how to please me
No other gal could ever tease me
Forget about all the rest
I . . . could'n care less

VERSE 2
Now if you'd just face your stuff
Instead o' stuffin' your face
And try to listen to learn and learn to listen
We got time invested, we're tried and tested
We gotta good thang - ain't nothin' missin'

When you start sayin' ya think I been playin'
We roll into a vicious cycle
While then night's still young we oughta get this done
And clean up this ol' debacle

CHORUS 2
I could'n care less - I could'n care less
If you're in the back yard in those Daisy Duke's
Or rockin' that little red party dress
I could'n care less - I could'n care less
Whether ya rollin' in your daddy's ol' puddle jump truck
Or layin' in my bed half dressed
Only you know how to please me
No other gal could ever tease me
Forget about all the rest
I . . . could'n care less

BRIDGE
(I could'n care less)
How many times we been down this road?

Stop puttin' my love on the line

(still waiting for guitar)

VERSE 1
Laurita likes to wild dance all through the night
In the center of the floor under sparkalin' lights
Struttin' red Amazon cowgirl boots
Orderin' her double shots o' cold Absolute

B SECTION 1
I picked up her tab without eyein' the label
Thinkin' this gal just might drink me under the table

CHORUS 1
She's too brown to blush - a real Mexican cutie
With those shapely legs an' her fine little booty
Nothin' seems to phase her when she's got a man crush
Chica's a real eye catcher - she's too brown to blush

VERSE 2
It got to 2 am - way passed time to go
But we're still kissin' in the middle of the Cotton Eyed Joe
A real public display of love and affection
Told her I'd take her home with me - she had no objection

B SECTION
Not afraid - to speak her mind
I'm thinkin' here's a gal that I could really get behind

CHORUS 2
She's too brown to blush - a real Mexican cutie
With those shapely legs an' her fine little booty
Nothin' seems to phase her when she's got a man crush
Chica's a real eye catcher - she's too brown to blush

BRIDGE
Bought her flowers and some candy you know I tried to please
I even talked real country and by way - I dropped all my g's
I got no raggedy reason or a poor excuse
Gon' write home to Mama an' tell her my good news
Mama... I think she loves me

INSTRUMENTAL

B SECTION 3
She's bold, brazen and quite outspoken
Can't tell if this is serious or if she's just jokin'

CHORUS 3
She's too brown to blush - a real Mexican cutie
With those shapely legs an' her fine little booty
Nothin' seems to phase her when she's got a man crush
Chica's a real eye catcher - she's too brown to blush

Packed up my bags -- left our house today
Gonna try things on my own
Who would ever predict things would end this way
All the years we spent gone down the drain
Can you tell me why?

B SECTION 1
We both loved sorrow
Practically every day
In the land of lost tomorrows
We both chose to stay

CHORUS 1

An' nothin' really seems the same
I guess I need to change my ways
Cuz we both got skin in the game

Well I got my new place, made me some groceries
But the food just don't taste the same
I thought I'd never have regrets
But I just can't stop... thinking your name
Can you tell me why?

One thing 'bout loneliness
There's plenty of time to think
Everything will work out for the best
I can live without a drink

CHORUS 2

Our family chain is tore and broken
An' nothin' really seems the same

If we could start all over
And try to turn things around
If somehow I could stay sober
And you would give us one more try --
Just one more - one more try

If I only knew then what I know now

VERSE 1
I loved you back in our early days
Like I never loved before
And nothing else seemed to matter
Somehow now we're on our own
And all through the years you stayed by my side
You and I were thick as thieves
'Til another girl got in the way
I forgot all 'bout your needs

Save me . . . I'm fading fast
From holdin' on to a love that's past
Maybe. . . I'll take this chance
For a broken heart could never hold me back...
From your love

I called you twice to apologize
To try to make amends
But angry words got in the way
When all I wanted was to be friends
Now every day on my way to work
I hear ol' songs that remind me of you
And all the things that we wanted
That was special, good, and true

CHORUS 2
Save me . . . I'm fading fast
From holdin' on to a love that's past
Maybe. . . I'll take this chance
For a broken heart could never hold me back...
Back from your love

Call out my name
In the midnight hour
Sweet love
I reach out to touch your face
I can smell your skin
And I can taste your taste - oooooo yeah mmmmm

Save me . . . I'm fading fast
From holdin' on to a love that's past
Maybe. . . if you could give me one more chance
For a broken heart could never hold me back . . .
From your love . . . mmmmm . . .

VERSE 1
I met you at the bar we had a conversation
Bought you little drink you showed no hesitation
And though I took you home that night with no invitation
You called me on the telephone with some complication
I really loved the night - the candle light 'til dawn
But I don't know you well enough
To miss you when you're gone

VERSE 2
I don't own you - you don't own me
We rented a time and space - set the evening free
And now you say you love me - I write you in a song
I thought we could be friends if we could get along
I might be right possibly you could be wrong
But I don't know you well enough
To miss you when you're gone

To miss you when you're gone
The story is a'way too short
And the pages are way too long

For major kind o' money down to nickels an' a dime
I can't put a price on it and it don't have to rhyme
But the next time you see me girl

An' on the radio when you hear this song
Singin' I don't know you well enough
To miss you when you're gone

Said I don't know you
I don't know you well enough
I don't know you.... no
Said I don't know you well enough
To miss you when you're gone

My wife and kids are forever glued
To their computer pads

'Cuz cameras are takin' pictures all over town
Have you noticed the cars all look the same today

CHORUS 2
An' all this new stuff to me is unknown
And Grandma just got herself an Iphone

BRIDGE
Grandma . . . She's textin' for kicks

VERSE 1
Got my head out of the bottle
Smokin' stogie stains on the hand
That's pullin' back a bit on the throttle

Or lift a glass to God up above . . . oh

Waltz me back to Texas . . .
Holdin' hand to hand

A herd of black mustangs keep runnin' 'round
Inside this old loser's head
Stampedin' pain down that lonely road
Of a life I've lived and led
Left home when things were so simple
When I was dancin' with my friend
Searchin' for rainbows of silver and gold
That really had no end . . . oh

Waltz me back to Texas . . .

Waltz me back to Texas . . .

Just move me along to the good ol' sound
Of oh so long ago

When I found that one-time lovers
Was just the place I could be
Went on along with my careless ways
Searchin' out each lost misery
Now and again every now and then

Through cracks in my memory . . . oh

CHORUS 3
Waltz me back to Texas . . .
2-steppin' to the band
Waltz me back to Texas . . .
Holdin' hand . . . hand to hand
Waltz me back to Texas . . .
Waltz me into the promised land
Just waltz me back to Texas . . .

VERSE 1
I remember Jasmine
She lived down by the Santa Lucia sea
And on one hot island night
Felt her arrive in the Caribbean breeze
Me llamo Juanito - te amo mama cita
Even though I had not seen here before
Her hips were swayin' in the breeze
Red lips were calling to me
My jaw nearly hit the floor

CHORUS 1
Hot island nights seemed like the right time
For falling' in love
With a pretty señorita and a bottle of tequila
That fit just like a glove
Into the heat of those hot island nights
I think I'm fallin' in love - yeah

VERSE 2
Then there was Amber
From Barbados, she lived down by the pier
She turned every head (oh yeah)
She never had to pay for her beer
Spent all my money - on this island honey
I'm thinking' love makin' down by the shore
But when she shook her finger
As I downed my last stinger
She broke out a pint of El Cazador

CHORUS 2
Hot island nights seemed like the right time
For falling' in love (Yes it was)
With a pretty señorita and a bottle of tequila
That fit just like a glove
Into the heat of those hot island nights
I think I'm fallin' in love - whew!

BRIDGE
Keepin' track of my drinks
How many had it been so far
I lost count about an hour ago
When all that booze went to my head
In this tropical island bar

CHORUS 3 BREAK DOWN
Hot island nights seemed like the right time
For falling' in love
With a pretty señorita and a bottle of tequila
That fit just like a glove
Into the heat of those hot island nights. . .

CHORUS 4
Hot island nights seemed like the right time
For falling' in love
With a pretty señorita and a bottle of tequila
That's what I'm dreamin' of
Into the heat of those hot island nights
I think I'm fallin' in love
(Hot Island Nights)
Mmm... yeah

No change a janglin' in my pocket

Jumped out the window down and out to her lane
Walked jus' 'bout a country mile
Through the brambles an' weeds and stiles
Won't be long now 'til I get past my pain

Everything
Seems so simple as I lean back

He gave it his all and all
But that just wasn't good enough
I guess he walked before he could crawl
And gave it all up when the going got tough

They say nothing ever lasts forever
But do "they" really know what they're talkin' about?
Maybe they should'a cupped the flame with two hands
Before the candle blew out... (To keep their love alive)

But time after time there comes a moment of truth
That he wasn’t what eventually drove her
To discover her part it it too

Countless times they tried to get it right
But when the wind keeps blowin' the brightest of lights goes out
And it breaks your heart to have to give up the fight

VERSE 1
They called mama "Little Sarah""
She was the apple of her grandaddy's eye
Deep down in d'country of Virginia
Where the red birds and monarchs fly

B SECTION 1
Didn't have a ton of money
But they got by alright in spite
Of all the drinkin' and the other vices
That our family had to face and fight

CHORUS 1
Can't forget the times we shared alone
I was the only son she'd ever known
Her sweet voice is callin' in the wind at night
She's still a teachin' me wrong from right
My life must go on without her smile
But thoughts of her remain and while
I can see my mama's eyes...
In the cardinals and butterflies

My mama was a beautiful angel
She was crowned the Surry County queen
Her daddy Owen was known for his good moonshine
Married grandma when she was (just) 15

B SECTION 2
We always knew 'em as Nanny and Pawpaw
Known for drinkin' 'n' partyin' every night late
Mama left the farm during Dubya Dubya 2
Met daddy up in Richmond - a hot Friday night date

CHORUS 2
Can't forget the times we shared alone
I was the only son she'd ever known
Her sweet voice is callin' in the wind at night
She's still a teachin' me wrong from right
My life must go on without her smile
But thoughts of her remain and while
I can see my mama's eyes...
In the cardinals and butterflies

BRIDGE
That winter red bird's still peckin' on the window sill
But I'm afraid the Swallowtail won't be back until
The mid-spring plantin' and the April rain
If I could only see my mama's face again
If only just one mo time... mmm

CHORUS 3
Can't forget the times we shared alone
I was the only son she'd ever known
Her sweet voice is callin' in the wind at night
She's still a teachin' me wrong from right
My life must go on without her smile
But thoughts of her remain and while
I can see my mama's eyes...
In the cardinals... and butterflies
Mmm... Mama

I'm a - I'm a - I'm a - I'm a - I'm a - I'm a -
I'm a country guy

VERSE 1
There's only one red light in this county seat
We like to talk about farmin' an' a country things
Folks still say no sir and yes mam
They're happy to help in any way that they can
I don't ask for much, I'm not a needy type
I'm just content to live a simple country life
Stress and high maintenance ain't my style
I work hard all day without losing my smile
(I ain't never lyin')

CHORUS 1
I bought a little chunk o' land and with a teensie bit o' luck
I get to carry you down the lane in my pickup truck
But if it looks like rain - silver clouds in the sky
I'll take the rest of the day off - we can stay inside...
Mmmm my oh my - I'm a country guy
I'm a - I'm a - I'm a - I'm a - I'm a country guy

VERSE 2
Well I can smell smoked bacon and the pecan pie
And mama Sarah's fried corn at the Sunday fish fry
A shot o' Bubba's bourbon at the brunswick stew
Where Paw Paw's puddle jumper's packin' pints of (fresh) home brew
I like huntin' wild turkey and some white tailed deer
All the gals cook 'em up while the men are drinkin' beer
With my good ol' boys - I'm telling "stories" not lies
'Bout the 12 point buck I shot right between the eyes
("Hell no that wuddun no doe")

CHORUS 2
I bought a little chunk o' land and with a teensie bit o' luck
I get to carry you down the lane in my pickup truck
But if it looks like rain - silver clouds in the sky
I'll take the rest of the day off - we can stay inside...
Whooo my oh my - I'm a country guy

BRIDGE
I go to church on Sunday, work on Monday...
I'm up before the crack o' dawn
Stayin' on top o' the weather is my number one job
And if it don't rain soon I'll lose my cotton crop

GUITAR SOLO (John Duva)

FIDDLE SOLO (Mark Indictor)

CHORUS 3
I bought a little chunk o' land and with a teensie bit o' luck
I get to carry you down the lane in my pickup truck

Why? my oh my - I'm a country guy (yes I am)
My oh my I'm a country guy
My oh my I'm a country guy
I'm a - I'm a - I'm a - I'm a - I'm a - country guy
My oh my I'm a country guy

SPOKEN OUTRO FOR LONG VERSION

Whooo I'm a country guy!
You better believe I'm in the country!
Where else would i be? (laughs)
I'm gon' break it down and tell you a little bit about it...
Butter beans, shelling peas, snaps, taters and maters
Home-made ice cream mmm mmm mmm
Now I can make a meal out o' this here
Hey - y'all know what I'm fixin' to do?
Tractor pulls, four-wheelin', mud-boggin' down a dirt road
Pickin' and grinnin', shuckin' and jivin'
An' drinking beers 'round a bonfire
Talkin' 'bout the good ol' times
Catfishin' on the mighty James River huh
Catchin' 'em and eatin' 'em too! (laughs)
Oh Lawd!
Smokin' squirrels out the tree hollah
Or goin' barefoot... (after the bumble bees come)
Frog giggin' . . .
Crawfish jackin' . . .
That's right (ha ha ha)

Now that's country! (in radio voice)

Words & Melody by Jimmy Hunter
Music by Jimmy Hunter & Paul Tokarz
vocals, drums, bass, organ - Jimmy Hunter
all guitars - Paul Tokarz

VERSE 1
Her skin is softer than the Gulf Coast sand
Plays country music - private beach gettin' tan
Her Daddy buys her anything that she wants
But she don't care about the money or people who flaunt

I met her down in some Biloxi honky tonk
We did some drinkin' after I sang her a couple o' songs
How'd we end up on Padre Island that night?
I still recall that I was drivin' one-eyed!

BSECTION 1
Pertiest gal you've ever seen
She's like a beauty queen
An' I had to hold my breath
Cuz she was kissin' me to death

CHORUS 1
Baby can we come up for air?
I really don't care 'bout time or space anymore
Help me! Help me! Girl I'm drowning in your love
An' I hope I ain't a' goin' down for the last time
No no no

VAMP
Save me . . . whoa

VERSE 2
She lives a life a leisure that you can't knock
I got a trailer up in North Little Rock
My budget runs on a little bit tighter shoestring
But she likes the finer things more money can bring

Now we try to compromise an' make things work out
Champagne and grits is what I'm talking' about
She digs horse racin' and she usually wins
Got myself in deep water - I'm a have to sink or swim

B SECTION 2
Pertiest gal you've ever seen
She's like a beauty queen
Still have to hold my breath
Cuz she's still kissin' me to death

CHORUS 2
Baby can we come up for air?
I really don't care 'bout time or space anymore
Help me! Help me! Girl I'm drowning in your love
An' I hope I ain't a' goin' down for the last time
No no no

BRIDGE
I went 'n put my guard down
She caught me by surprise
I didn't see this big wave comin'
When I looked in those green eyes

SOLO
Paul Tokarz

CHORUS 3
Can we come up for air?
I really don't care 'bout time or space anymore
Help me! Help me! Girl I'm drowning in your love

VERSE 1
Well I knew I had to workin the mornin'
When I went out last night at ten
Look at me - history repeatin' istelf
Guess I'm back on the wagon again
Had my share of good and bad times
And I could drink at the drop of a hat
Figured out that wuddun any life at all
I was just so full of crap

CHORUS 1
I put on those bad day shoes
Kickin' that backwoods country blues
Pickin' guitars - gettin' back to my roots
Sneakin' right out of them cowboy boots
Singin' why you wanna have to hurt me today
Too tight to wear - I wore 'em anyway
Normally I'd refuse
But back in the day I put on those bad day shoes

VAMP
diddle diddle diddle diddle diddle diddle dadda bang bang

VERSE 2
Some days you can't help but get up
On the wrong side of the bed
Could'a been somethin' I was dreamin'
Laced with somethin' that she said
Spent many a day loafin' 'round the house
I would drink, fuss and hollah
But when I put one foot in front of the other
My ass is gonna follah

CHORUS 2
I put on those bad day shoes
Kickin' that backwoods country blues
Pickin' guitars - gettin' back to my roots
Sneakin' right out of them cowboy boots
Singin' why you wanna have to hurt me today
Too tight to wear - I wore 'em anyway
Normally I'd refuse
But back in the day I put on those bad day shoes
HELL YEAH!

SOLO

BRIDGE
Now there's one more definition
For how a man to "keep things green"
Won't ever forget what it was like
I gotta remember how low I've been
There's stuff out there that'll kill ya
Like people, places and things
The forces that be'll make ya lose control
Of a life clean livin' brings

CHORUS 3
I put on those bad day shoes
Kickin' that backwoods country blues
Pickin' guitars - gettin' back to my roots
Sneakin' right out of them cowboy boots
Singin' why you wanna have to hurt me today
Too tight to wear - I wore 'em anyway
Normally I'd refuse
But back in the day I put on those bad day shoes

Don't mean to sound needy baby
An' I know this may sound crazy
But I think I'm gonna have to pull back now
To get myself on track just a little bit
Ain't nothin' that you said hon'
Wuddun' nothin' that you went an' done
Things just came unfolded
Like a cat in a laundry basket

VERSE 2
We had a good run honey
Spent a lot of time and money
Findin' out what this life's about

I got to find my own way
I been puttin' it off but today's the day

B SECTION 1
I've come to my conclusion

CHORUS 1
I need a game changer
A real life re-arranger

From this broken heart
I need some fresh road

Girl don't treat me like a stranger
I need a game changer

VERSE 2
My head's full of good time memories
And I prayed down on my knees
That I'd to the right thing by ya
I let go - but the feelin's linger
Hadda search in my soul
Dug deep down to places I don't go much
Face the fear of loneliness
Imperfect I confess

B SECTION 2
I've come to my conclusion

CHORUS 2
I need a game changer
A real life re-arranger

Realized I can't change nobody but myself
And finger pointin' ain't the right way to go
An' it took forever to muster up this courage
An' I always had big love for you - I need you to know

You might o' been more than I was lookin' for
My heart went pitter patter - I got caught off guard (for sure)
Your sweet lovin' kept me comin' back for more

Perhaps I'm destined for a single man's life

Stuck it out for as long as I could
Did'n wanna yell like I did or use profanity

Never fade away from my heart
Never fade away - no matter what they say

Got no time for fightin' baby
Get out of my head
Takes two to tango in a - wrestlin' ring
Can't have no part in a one sided thing

When I git back we gon' have a little talk
This thing's been comin' for some time now
And tonight is the night
I'ma have to put my foot down

It's too late for makin' up
It's too late, girl

VERSE 2
Me . . . I'm at the end of my rope
But I learned a lesson a long time ago
Sometime the best thing is to call a time out
No matter how long it takes
To find a work around
Can't let no outside stuff
Takin' up rent in my mind
Since I'm not lookin' for trouble
That ain't what I'm gon' find
No finger pointin' 'bout no errors or sins
At the end of the day nobody loses or wins

Too late for kissin' n' hugs and makin' up
We gave it our best but it still hurts none the less
It's too late for makin' up
It's too late, girl

'Cuz we were never a waste of time
Someday we'll look back on this
As two loving hearts that found their bliss
It's too late to say I'm sorry

And girl there's no crime at all in that
You loaned your sweet heart for a little time in the sun

After you've put your heart out on that limb
But at some point you might have to look inside yourself
Instead of pointing that finger at him

Let your love light shine again and again (and again)

VERSE
Some like it hot . . . Some'll treat ya cold . . .
I want a lot . . .
I guess I'll never get old
They say it never leaves ya . . .
Kinda like a ridin' a bike
With no prior investigation
I'm inclined to believe they're right

B SECTION 1
And when they open the gate I'll be steppin' out on faith
I saw that look in her eye that time can't erase

I been out in the wilderness
And forty years is a might long time
She might be some kinda promised land but you know
This ain't my first rodeo
Aww Hell!!!

VERSE2
You never can predict a fall --
Ya just hold on tight for dear life
Been slammin' up against the wall . . .
Clownin' with another man's wife
She's got me behind the barrel --
One shot - my aim was true
But he got off another round as well
Now my playin' days are through

B SECTION 2
And when they open the gate I'll be steppin' out on faith
I saw that look in her eye that time can't erase

CHORUS 2 (2X)
I been out in the wilderness
And forty years is a might long time
She might be some kinda promised land but you know
This ain't my first rodeo
I been out in the wilderness
And forty years is a might long time
She might be some kinda promised land but you know
This ain't my first rodeo

Nobody would believe it . . .
It'd take alot to understand
If I could do things over
I'da worked out a better plan

CHORUS INTRO
We're not happy together
Looks like we've landed at the end of a lonely dark road
An' it's not like we didn't give us a fair shot
But how many times do we need to be shown
We're not happy together - no no
Finally there's one thing from which we can agree
We're not happy together, hmmm
So can we just leave one another peacefully

VERSE 1
I thought I'd said yes to a true blessing
So many good times - who could ask for more?
But who has room for too much fussin' n' fightin
Just makes a heart into something broken and torn

We gotta lay our hearts on the shelf
And put an end to all this confusion
Because we couldn't find a way to fix this by ourselves

Nobody knew the best way we should go
If we could do it all over would we take it slow
Well it's too late now - girl - we'll never know...
(Time to face and admit it)

VERSE 1
She was born in North Carolina in a lil ol' country town
'Bout a half an hour south of the place they call Rocky Mount
When mama got preggerz 'n they named their daughter Raelyn
Daddy hitched up down in Nag's Head after livin' in sin

B SECTION 1
He eventually he left this family of three
In a town where nobody minds their own business
And livin' a sheltered life gets crazy - to a certain degree
WIth nobody 'round to serve as witness

CHORUS 1
Raelyn, he ain't never comin' back
Never again - better guard your heart little girl
Raelyn, no he ain't never comin' back - no more
He ain't never comin' back no more... hmmm

VERSE 2
A high school cheerleader and the class Prom Queen
She was the pertiest gal in the county that you'd ever seen
Married a good ol boy name o' Jeffrey a fell in love with her
Til he left to lay pipe - up in West Virginia

B SECTION 2
"Seb'm" weeks passed finally turned into two months
She waited patiently - but no calls returned
Raelyn wanted him to come home to her at once
Easy to justify why she had concerns

CHORUS 2
Raelyn, he ain't never comin' back
Raelyn, he ain't never comin' back
Never again - better guard your heart little girl
Raelyn, no he ain't never comin' back - no more
He ain't never comin' back no more...

BRIDGE
Now there hadda be a reason Jeffrey vanished like that
Then in the papers and all over the news
A big ol' explosion blew a chunk 'o pipe south of Wheeling
With only one survivor or two
Raelyn, Jeffrey won't be comin' back for you no no... no no nooooo

SOLO

Oh...

VERSE 1
Somedays we're like a teenage puppy love affair
Other times you get right up on my last nerve
An'a honestly I don't know how to cope
With all the ups and downs
Ain't what a good man like me is thinkin' I deserve

B SECTION 1
We're meant to be happy girl instead o' fussin' half the time
Cuz life's too short for us to be battlin' all nite long
We should be makin' memories and holdin' each other tight
An' the truth is baby - I ain't got no dog in this fight

CHORUS 1
Jealousy and trust have been a challenge for us
Just can't seem to come together n' see eye to eye
I don't wanna have to give up -
Not today - maybe tomorrow...
Oh I just don't know...
I'll feel sorry for the next guy...
Cuz I'm a tough act to follow

VAMP

VERSE 2
Now we keep makin' up - makin' out -
Startin' all over again
Count the many times I know
We've probably both lost track
Over and over again expecting a different resolution
Insanity - maybe - but I'm willing to take one more crack

B SECTION 2
My mama didn't raise no quitters lingers in my mind
I keep pushin' toward a little something to hold on to
If we put in a bit more effort maybe we might find
A clean way up to gettin' a break-up breakthrough

CHORUS 2
Jealousy and trust have been a challenge for us
Just can't seem to come together n' see eye to eye
I don't wanna have to give up -
Not today - maybe tomorrow...
Oh I just don't know...
I'll feel sorry for the next guy...
Cuz I'm a tough act to follow

BRIDGE
When it seems like we're headed down
The Highway of Hurt
I don't cry even when I feel it deep inside
There's a patch o' rough road - at just 'bout every turn
There's no where to run - no where to hide...
Oh ho

SOLO
Glen Aliano

CHORUS 3
Jealousy and trust have been a challenge for us
Just can't seem to come together n' see eye to eye
I don't wanna have to give up -
Not today - maybe tomorrow...
Oh I just don't know...
I'll feel sorry for the next guy...
Cuz I'm a tough act to follow

VERSE 1
Thought I could get lucky in love cuz I was 30 years sober
But a notion like that kinda blew up in my face
I felt like I'd found me a blonde green eyed four leaf clover
But when the pin got pulled I could see my last mistake

B SECTION 1
After searchin' an' searchin' for the perfect combination
This one wuddin' gonna work no more
But I keep gettin' a little bit closer to my final destination
Enough to open up another door

CHORUS 1
Should'a remembered that close only counts
When you're feelin like a winner - when love finally fades
Close only counts - Somebody once said
In horseshoes... mmm yeah... and hand grenades

VERSE 2
I never was the type o' guy to take hostages or prisoners
And love 'em and leave 'em seemed like a way of life
But don't take me for a charmer - I'm just a damn good listener
And it don't mean I'll never take myself a wife

B SECTION 2
After searchin' an' searchin' for the perfect combination
This one wuddin' gonna work no more
But I keep gettin' a little bit closer to my final destination
Enough to open up another door

CHORUS 2 Should'a remembered that close only counts
When you're feelin like a winner - when love finally fades
Close only counts - Somebody once said
In horseshoes... mmm yeah... and hand grenades

BRIDGE
When that pin gets pulled
I'ma have to duck or run for cover
Gon’ pitch me a ringer next time love unfolds
Don't want no leaner - I want a good lover

CHORUS 3
Should'a remembered that close only counts
When you're feelin like a winner - when love finally fades
Close only counts - Somebody once said
In horseshoes... mmm yeah... and hand grenades

INTRO
Hello Uber... I'm at the Dollar Tree

VERSE
Oh one more time I've had just one too many
And this ol' bar is 'bout to close
I know I won't remember where I was tomorrow
When some big bouncer said I had to go

B SECTION 1
I'm thinkin I jus' might have a problem
That another shot an' a beer can't fix
Feel like I just might a hit my bottom
Still my solution is another "six""

CHORUS 1
My family up and left me when my money got lean
Now I'm at the Dollar Tree drinkin' Listerine
Guess my breath won't stank and I'm feelin' all right
An' I have no idea where I'm sleepin' tonite
Oh Lordy me... This is the worst I've ever seen...
At the Dollar Tree... ...mmm drinkin' Listerine

VAMP

VERSE 2
Oh why the hell won't this ol' dang car start
I thought for sure it had a little more gas
Tried to walk home but it was a little too far
An' when I climb in bed my wife's gon' beat my ass

B SECTION 2
Hsney's all out of givin' second chances
And I ain't seen our kids in a month
I try to call her but she never answers
Guess I'll have to sleep in my truck out front

CHORUS 2 My family up and left me when my money got lean
Now I'm at the Dollar Tree drinkin' Listerine
Guess my breath won't stank and I'm feelin' all right
An' I have no idea where I'm sleepin' tonite
Oh Lordy me... This is the worst I've ever seen...
At the Dollar Tree... ...mmm drinkin' Listerine

VAMP (SHORT)

BRIDGE
Been chuggin' it straight out o' the bottle
An' I know there's plenty more on the shelf
A child-proof lid oughta come with an ergonomic nozzle
So you can open'er up and sip it all by yourself (what the hell)

B (It's come to this!)

SOLO

CHORUS 3
My family up and left me when my money got lean
Now I'm at the Dollar Tree drinkin' Listerine
Guess my breath won't stank and I'm feelin' all right
An I have no idea where I'm sleepin' tonite
Oh Lordy me... This is the worst I've ever seen...
At the Dollar Tree... ...mmm drinkin' Listerine

VAMP 1 BAR

TAG
Guess until I decide to get clean...
I'm at Dollar Tree... drinkin' Listerine

VERSE 1
Rocks on the water, wearin' sea green moss
Covered in foam
Two lovers turnin' stumblin' blocks
Into steppin' stones . . . mmm
Barefootin' on the beach at night
Sandpipers, gulls and whales
The golden sunset bids the day farewell
We tread lightly over the shells... yeah

B SECTION 1
She drew two layered hearts in the sand
With her fingertips
I took a picture with one hand
With the other, caressed her lips
I only wanted a memory - a little token I could save
Then suddenly it all disappeared
From an unexpected wave

CHORUS 1
She was only writin' me love letters in the sand...
They washed away...
And I would never return to sender
Cause we had other plans
They washed away...

VERSE 2
Maybe we were stuck on stupid
Or could o' been blinded by the night...mmm
We cut a loose naked on that shore
Smokin' funny cigarettes and drankin' white wine
(Uh huh)
I never had a better lover
And believe me I've had a few...
I never had to say one word to her
She knew exactly what to do... mmm

B SECTION 2
I took her hand and held it one last time
As we walked in the water
We never ever thought to look back behind us
As the tide came in - it caught her
She never knew how to fight the struggle
To come back to the top
You gotta hold your breath -
Keep your eye on the bubbles
'Til the rush of the moment stops

CHORUS 2
She was only writin' me love letters in the sand...
They washed away...
And I would never return to sender
Cause we had other plans
They washed away...

BRIDGE
They say metaphysically water is your emotions
Maybe it's only me - I believe in the power of oceans
I'll never forget I had the time of my life
With the girl of my wildest dreams
When the night came down she never said goodbye
As the water washed us clean

CHORUS 3
She was only writin' me love letters in the sand...
They washed away...
And I would never return to sender
Cause we had other plans
They washed away...

CHORUS 4
She was only writin' me love letters in the sand...
They washed away...
And I would never return to sender
Cause we had other plans
They washed away...
