Adam Hood – Play Something We Know lyrics

I saw you walk in here
With that guitar in your hand
I thought I might ask you
What you might be playin'

Just one more question
Well, I know you gotta go
Me and my friends aren't drinkin'
We're just wonderin' if you know

Any Lynyrd Skynyrd?
Or American Pie?
Willie and Waylon?
Magic Carpet Ride?

How 'bout Marshall Tucker?
Or David Allan Coe?
Play somethin' we could sing to
Play somethin' we know.

Well I know how it is, dude
I used to have me a band
But our drummer, Ronnie,
He got on down at the plant.
Our singer got a girlfriend
Well you know how that goes

So play somethin' we could sing to
Play somethin' we know

Do you know any Buffett?
Or any Pink Floyd?
How about some 'Dead, dude?
How about the Doors?

Do you know any Beatles?
Or any Rolling Stones?
Play somethin' we could sing to
Play somethin' we know

Man if you want me to
I'll sing a song with you
I used to sing the high part
My brother Donny is sittin' at the bar
He plays a mean guitar

What are you lookin' at man?
You don't want me to play?
Well, you bout to get your ass whooped,
You keep lookin' at me that way
Man I don't really mean it,
There's no need to call security.
I was only hopin'
That you'd sing a song for me.

Do you know Hank Jr.?
Or any any Steve Earle?
How about the Joker?
Or Brown Eyed Girl?
Sweet Home Alabama?
Or Curtis Lowe?

Play somethin' we could sing to
Play somethin' we know.
How bout some Neal Young?
Man, play some Whiskey River man.
Play somethin' we know
