Lord the devil had his hands on my soul
I even stooped to pleasure being mean
Oh God, have mercy on us weak men
that lean too heavy on their women.
A woman's trust in her man is the key
and broken vows leave so much in doubt
Good Lord watch over all them good strong women
and bless 'em with the patience
to love a needy man
Kicking dust on the canyon road
I got a free ride to Roscoe
San Diego Freeway, I'm almost home
Say goodbye to them weekend thrills
Can't nobody find my five dollar bill
and this California livin' is killin' me
Swimming pools and barbecue
Lotsa wine and a song or two
Everybody's high on Bobby's credit to Betsy
Cold November, cold November
Unable to get myself together
You're wastin' your life woman
Thinkin' it's gonna get better
Sometimes it's better
on a sunshiney day
If You Don't Leave Me Alone (I'll Find Somebody That Will)
You're scarin' me to death baby with your jealous heart
This ain't no way for our romance to start.
You keep on telling me to explain myself
'Bout something one of your friends said,
About me and somebody else,
Your loose mouth friends honey
Ain't doin' you no good
And some of them gals you run with
Wouldn't help you if they could.
Let Me Be Your Lover
Come on to me baby
let me be your lover
Let's do all the things lovers do
we can kiss and hug dear
on that llama rug that your
daddy back in Texas gave to you
Thinkin' 'bout the time we was
Blowin' peoples' minds
Together doing what we wanted to
Lucky Boy (Your Ramblin' Days Are Through)
Lucky Boy, kept a secret rendezvous
Whoa, he didn't know
where all them hot kisses might lead him to
Yeah, but Sweet Suzie, she knew, yeah
Lucky Boy's ramblin' days are though.
Now and then he remembers when
There was just him to do all the thinkin'
Whoa, but he found a four leaf clover
And Lucky Boy's ramblin' day are over.
Oh, my, Baby don't you cry over me anymore
Oh, my, you gonna have to learn to get by
I've been down before
and I'll probably get down some more
It seems like I've been doin' alright wihout you.
Listen to me, you gonna have to set me free
Woman stop your cryin' and go and and let me be
Go out and find yourself someone
'Cause I can't help you none
Well there's sidewalks and cement
and it's concrete evidence
that a country boy ain't got no
business livin' in the city.
When there's holes in your walking shoes
they're just dues that you pay
to get yourself an education
the big city way.
Too much, Too much
We've already taken to much
Everybody's gonna have to give some
Or He's gonna give us up.
Take a look at the city
They're all pretty much the same
They all got something called downtown
They all got a street called Main.
They all got lots of people
To Be With You
I turned out all the lights
in my old world
There in the dark I left a
tremblin' crying darling girl
It's plain to see that you got me
Doin' what I have to do
to be with you.
I wonder how big a fool a man can be
Burnin' bridges, breakin' hearts,
You Gonna Miss Me
You gonna miss me
all through the lonely night
You gonna miss me
all through the day
You may wonder for a long time
Oh, why, did you drive your man away.
You packed my bags, and tell me I'm leavin'
Say I've laid around too long
You givin' up on love now darlin'
