With a dark, crimson finish like no other one Sweet varietal, I’m hear to tell you, son Hounded in my dreams, by the aroma of her call Her poison’s in my veins, I think I’ve lost it all I'm haunted by the memories of all the synchronicities That brought me to the place where I believe I told ‘em all I was doin’ fine, while she was fuckin’ up my mind I only wanna drink her wine Like a fool I fell for the vintage of her charms Lost in the private reserve of her arms Everything might look alright, but don’t you look too close If you don’t mind I think I’ll take me another dose I'm haunted by the memories of all the synchronicities That brought me to the place where I believe I told ‘em all I was doin’ fine, while she was fuckin’ up my mind I only wanna drink her wine Feel like I’ve fallen in a hole Will I get out? Well, I don’t know Ain't got the power to say no If I knew everything then that I know these days I never would have reveled in that very first taste Love, logic, reason...don’t mean a thing to me Just one more sip and then I swear that I’ll be free I'm haunted by the memories of all the synchronicities That brought me to the place where I believe I told ‘em all I was doin’ fine, while she was fuckin’ up my mind I only wanna drink her wine

What I Want 03:20
All you pretty women better find your place in line I got a dark haired beauty on my mind Piquant and amusing, with a wit of sharpened steel Spins me ‘round just like a roulette wheel Know I’m ‘bout to lose my mind, I do it every goddamn time Searchin’ for the things I want Spotlight on the stage is bright, playin’ every single night Now, you know just what I want You’re the kind of fancy that I like to have around Till another day, another town Welcome to the night life, and the magick of its spell Y’all switch places when I ring the bell Know I’m ‘bout to lose my mind, I do it every goddamn time Searchin’ for the things I want Spotlight on the stage is bright, playin’ every single night Now, you know just what I want Flyin’ from the east and I’m fallin’ to the west Infinite signs mark this as a jest Tomorrow I’ll be leavin’, tonight I gotta see it Crack the code, I’ll give you what you want Yeah, what you want. Callin’ out for freedom on the road that’s ever long With nothin' but a guitar and a song I ain’t so supercilious as to tell you what to do But shake that ass, we’re here to rock for you Know I’m ‘bout to lose my mind, I do it every goddamn time Searchin’ for the things I want Spotlight on the stage is bright, playin’ every single night Now, you know just what I want Rock n roll will set you free, get a little high you’ll see Playin’ for you all is what I want Heed the call and hear the sound, tear this motherfucker down Rock n roll all night is what I want

I was my father's only son Lived in the shadow of what he done Till the day he said to me, boy, the true will set you free And he vanished with a whisper and a gun The honky tonks have all closed down And the folks that I knew ain't around So I hold my head up high, and I look to the sky I feel ‘em here....by my side On my watch, she died alone For all my sins she did atone Now I’m haunted in my dreams, I can hear the awful screams Of the night, she took flight and was gone. The honky tonks have all closed down And the folks that we knew ain't around So I hold my head up high, and I look to the sky I feel ‘em here....by my side The streets of my home town are clear And I’m the only soul still living here How did I get so old, that all my stories have been told Don’t fear, the end is coming near The honky tonks have all closed down And the folks that I knew ain't around So I hold my head up high, and I look to the sky I feel you here.... The honky tonks have all closed down Them folks that we knew, they ain't around So we hold our head up high, and we look to the sky Feel ‘em here....by my side.

I’ll never forget the first time, I seen your summer blonde Gettin’ drunk and rowdy at Sharon’s Pond Romance of the ages, dipped in cherry wine The feelin' of your soft skin next to mine But what ever happened to those kids And all them crazy, wild things we did The day of wine and roses The days that are long gone It’s time for you and I to be movin’ on Drivin’ on a long haul, so good we was so bad Makin’ love in the back of my sleeper cab All them nights on the highway, talkin’ until dawn Singin' out our favorite country song Got married, thought we’d have it all But instead we sealed our fall The day of wine and roses The days that are long gone It’s time for you and I to be movin’ on The day of wine and roses The days that have gone by It’s time for you and I to say goodbye Gone in a cocaine heartbeat, hell if I know where A world of broken dreams gone without repair We’re livin’ but pills and memories, there's nothing left to say Lost our very souls along the way But I can’t tell you when it changed Cracks in our faces beyond our age The day of wine and roses The days that are long gone It’s time for you and I to be movin’ on The day of wine and roses The days that have gone by It’s time for you and I to say goodbye

I woke up this morning Wonderin’ where the hell it is I was I pulled out of Nashville Cracked a beer for everything it does Baby, I’m thinkin’ about your love There’s too many women in this town And they don’t like my music loud I’ll meet you down at the Lost & Found And if you can’t make it, well then…I’ll hang around Girl, you ain’t no beauty queen And I’m well aware I ain’t the best you’ve known The pretty lights of city They pulled us away from our country home Baby, let’s drink to being alone There’s too many women in this town And they don’t like my music loud I’ll meet you down at the Lost & Found And if you can’t make it, well then…I’ll hang around Remember that bar downtown Slow dancin’ to the sound of November Rain You told me then that you loved me If I recall, I mighta said the same Baby, let’s ride this big ol’ train! There’s too many women in this town And they don’t like my music loud I’ll meet you down at the Lost & Found And if you can’t make it, well then…I’ll hang around

In the Southwestern nation They killed a young maiden The one true love of my life Know where I am goin’, The blood will be flowin’ For I’d promised to make her my wife There was talks of a Preacher Mysterious creature Who suddenly couldn’t be found So I’d vowed that I’d find him And put all the time in To hear him make his final sound I rolled with the outlaws The justice of my cause The honor for which I once stood Forlorn and forsaken My body it's breakin’ I did the best that I could Each year I grew older My heart it grew colder As I killed those who did me no wrong They stood in the way of A labor of lost love The only thing that moved me along One day in Tuscon A bar patron went on About an new Preacher around But he knew he’d been lyin’ For that day he was sighted With a well known lady of town I rolled with the outlaws The justice of my cause The honor for which I once stood Forlorn and forsaken My body it's breakin’ I did the best that I could The church I did enter He stood front and center Heard every word that he said A small bird, it flew in With a plumage of crimson Landed on a pew up ahead He held up his bible I held up my rifle Scripture filled up the air I claimed it was fiction A sweet contradiction I saw the guilt deep in his stare I rolled with the outlaws The justice of my cause The honor for which I once stood Forlorn and forsaken My body it's breakin’ I did the best that I could Scream out for mercy Your god won’t save you now The hammer of my vengeance Is coming down… Reign of blood and thunder The corpses pile up high The red sea'll be parted With my cry… Shine on, sweet diamond My lover, my dear I never stopped searching All these years… Brushed by a cool breeze Fell down to my knees Watched the blood spill from my chest With my retribution Came full absolution So wow I must lay down to rest
