Lyrics

There's a long black train down on the line
Feedin' off of souls that are lost and cryin'
Rails of sin only evil remains
Watch out brother for that Long Black Train

Look to the heavens, you can look to the sky
You can find redemption starin' back into your eyes
There is protection, and there's peace the same
Burnin' your ticket for that Long Black Train

'Cause there's victory in the Lord I say
Victory in the Lord
Cling to the Father and His holy name
And don't go ridin' on that Long Black Train

There's an engineer on that Long Black Train
Makin' you wonder if the ride is worth the pain
He's just awaitin' on your heart to say
Let me ride on that Long Black Train

But you know there's victory in the Lord I say
Victory in the Lord
Cling to the Father and His holy name
And don't go ridin' on that Long Black Train

Well, I can hear the whistle from a mile away
It sounds so good, but I must stay away
That train is a beauty makin' everybody stare
But its only destination is the middle of nowhere

But you know there's victory in the Lord I say
Victory in the Lord
Cling to the Father and His holy name
And don't go ridin' on that Long Black Train

I said cling to the Father and His holy name
And don't go ridin' on that Long Black Train

Yeah, watch out brother for that Long Black Train
That devil's adrivin' that Long Black Train

Lyrics

Some men dream of crossin' oceans
Some men dream one day to fly
Spend their whole lives out there floatin'
on the water and the sky

Some men dream of building fortunes
Some men dream of havin' fame
Nothin' else is more important
Than makin' money and fame

Chorus:
But In My Dreams I see
A little sky blue house
Beside a small stream
A front porch, a screen door
The sound of bare feet runnin' and cartoons
In My Dreams, your dreams come true

I come find you in your garden
Pullin' weeds between the rows
Trade a kiss for a glass of water
Sit and watch what love can grow

Repeat Chorus

In My Dreams, your dreams
Are the only things
That really matter to me
When you smile, I smile
What makes you happy, makes me happy too
In My Dreams, your dreams come true
In My Dreams, your dreams come true

3. What It Ain't

Lyrics

I have been around
This old block before
I've walked into
Aprubtly closin' doors
Schooled in hard knocks, I've learned a lot
'Bout how a heart can break
I might now know what love is
But I know What It Ain't

Chorus:
It ain't layin' in the dark and wonderin' why she hasn't called
And now it's 2 AM
It ain't drivin' by her house to find her wrapped up in the arms
Of your ex-best friend
It ain't bold-face lies or alibis that cannot be explained
I might not know what love is
But I know What It Ain't

You say you could
Show me how to love
Baby, there's one thing
You can be sure of
I wouldn't treat you wrong cause I've been on
The hurtin' side of pain
I might not know what love is
But I know What It Ain't

Chorus:
It ain't showin' up for dinner with a rose and Chardonnay
Then drinkin' by yourself
It ain't a postcard from Hawaii sayin' we can still be friends
But I met someone else
It ain't bold-face lies or alibis that cannot be explained
I might not know what love is
But I know What It Ain't

It ain't a mink coat, forty pairs of shoes, two 14 karat anklets
On my Mastercard
It ain't walkin' in a pawn shop, recognizing her engagement ring
She swore she lost
It ain't bold-face lies or alibis that cannot be explained
I might not know what love is
But I know What It Ain't

If you had all day I could tell you things
That would make a grown man faint
I might not know what love is
But I know What It Ain't
Yeah, I know What It Ain't

Lyrics

I sure do like your Cadillac
Brings lots of memories back
I always felt like a star
Drivin' around in that car

Chorus:
'Cause I Had One One Time
Oh, I Had One One Time
You'd probably think I'm lyin'
But I Had One One Time

Have you got a job that you love
Each day you can't wait to get up
You feel proud when you draw your pay
Would you be surprised if I say

Chorus:
That I Had One One Time
Oh, I Had One One Time
Now I hold a cardboard sign
But I Had One One Time

I bet you've got a good friend
You always hand out on weekends
Since high school you've been thick as thieves
Well, I bet you'd never believe

Chorus:
I Had One One Time
Oh, I Had One One Time
Somewhere along the line
I Had One One Time

That beautiful girl beside you is probably your wife
Man, you've got it all, I'd say you live quite a life

Chorus:
I Had One One Time
Oh, I Had One One Time
Maybe I've lost my mind
But I Had One One Time

Lyrics

It wasn't even in my plan
A week in the sun and some fun in the sand
I was really only passin' through
It all began on Ocean Drive
Standin' in line for a burger and fries
Coincidentally, so were you
We took a quiet corner booth

Chorus:
Didn't plan on hangin' out in Florida
Never was too good at standin' still
Suddenly it's lookin' like I'm gonna
Kill a few more days in Jacksonville

I'm givin' up my walkin' shoes
While the wind and the waves wash away my blues
And you help me lose track of time
Rock and roll, you're holdin' me
Rockin' in your arms by a rollin' sea
It was easy makin' up my mind
I can see forever in your eyes, your eyes

Repeat Chorus Twice

Kill a few more days in Jacksonville

Lyrics

Woke up at 5 AM, put on my camoflague
Wiped off my .243 and fired up my Dodge
Headed out to my ol' deerstand back in the pines
Gonna get me a ten point buck with 11 inch tines, yeah

Settled in hidin' from the wind, waitin' on the sun
You might end up bein' my supper if you get in the way of my gun
It's so still I can hear the train from ten miles away
If I'm here eight hours from now it'll be okay, yeah

Chorus:
'Cause I'm a Backwoods Boy
Grew up on a dirt road
I'm a Backwoods Boy
With no better place to go
Waitin' on a deer, wishin' on a star
I'll always be true to my heart
'Cause I'm a Backwoods Boy
I'm a Backwoods Boy

Sittin' on the bank of Lynches
River with a little campfire
Sleepin' on the ground, diggin' the
sound of a backwoods choir
Talkin' to the man in the moon
way up in the sky
He told me to let my worries
roll on by, yeah

Repeat Chorus

I'm a Backwoods Boy
I'm a Backwoods Boy
Backwoods Boy
Mmm...
I'm a Backwoods Boy

Lyrics

I miss you so much
I don't know what to do
Can't bear the thought of
My life without you
Please baby, let's Unburn All Our Bridges

Whatever it was
That tore us apart
Can surely be healed
With forgiving hearts
Please baby, let's Unburn All Our Bridges

Chorus:
Tempers were lost
Emotions ran high
Feelings were wounded
On the night of goodbye
We said some things
We didn't mean
That wasn't you, baby
That wasn't me

I still love you
I will till I die
And love is much stronger
Than anger or pride
Please baby, let's Unburn All Our Bridges

Repeat Chorus

That wasn't you, baby
That wasn't me

I still love you
I will till I die
And love is much stronger
Than anger or pride
Please baby, let's Unburn All Our Bridges
Please baby, let's Unburn All Our Bridges
Unburn All Our Bridges
Unburn All Our Bridges

Lyrics

Uptown's got its hustlers
The Bowery's got its bums
And forty second street got big Jim Walker
He's a pool shootin' son of a gun
Yeah, he's big and dumb as a man can come
But he's stronger than a country hoss
And when the bad folks all get together at night
You know they all call big Jim "boss"... just because

Chorus:
And they say
You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger
And You Don't Mess Around With Jim

Well, outta south Alabama come a country boy
He said, "I'm lookin' for a man named Jim
I am a pool shootin' boy
My name is Willie McCoy
But down home they call me Slim
Yeah, I'm lookin' for the king of forty second street
He drivin' a drop top Cadillac
And last week he took all my money
And it may sound funny
But I come to get my money back."

Chorus:
And ev'rybody say
Jack, you don't know that
You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger
And You Don't Mess Around With Jim

Well, a hush fell over the pool room
When Jimmy come boppin' in off the street
And when the cuttin' was done
The only part that wasn't bloody
Was the soles of the big man's feet
Yeah, he was cut in 'bout a hundred places
And he was shot in a couple more
And you better believe
They sung a different kind of story
When big Jim hit the floor, uh huh

Chorus:
Now they say
You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Slim

You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Slim

You don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Slim

9. She'll Go On You

Lyrics

If you've got a little girl, you'd better take the time
To go to her tea parties and give her a piggyback ride
Be a dragon or a dinosaur every chance you get
'Cause one day you can bet

Chorus:
She'll Go On You
Before you can turn around
And it's so lonely watchin' that
Fast train leavin' town
Better cherish her every second of your life
'Cause this precious little thing that we call time
She'll Go On You

Well, if you've got a special one
You'd better love her everyday
Leave her notes on the 'frigerator door
And send her sweet bouquets
Always be her confidant
A safe place for her to rest
Or that little thing you call your happiness

Chorus:
She'll Go On You
Before you can turn around
And it's so lonely watchin' that
Fast train leavin' town
Better cherish her every second of your life
Take her in your arms and do her right
Or She'll Go On You

Well, you've got your mama there
You oughta thank her everyday
For nursin' all your colds and
Sittin' up when you'd stay out late
Now all her hair is grey, and every year she's not as strong
On of these days before too long

Chorus:
She'll Go On You
Before you can turn around
And it's so lonely watchin' that
Fast train leavin' town
Better cherish her every second of your life
'Cause before you get the chance to say goodbye
She'll Go On You

'Cause this precious little thing that we call life
She'll Go On You
Yes, she will

10. Good Woman Bad

Lyrics

She was out last night till way past ten
Same thing all over again but with my best friend
Why'd she wanna make me so mad
Lord, I need a Good Woman Bad

Now when I asked her to go to Sunday school
She went and called me a damned old fool
Now I don't understand
Why'd she wanna make me so sad
I treat that bad woman good
Lord, I need a Good Woman Bad

Here she comes
There she goes

Well, I saved my money, and I bought her a car
She got it stolen outside of the bar
She looks good, but she might not be
The kinda woman that I'm likely to need

Well, I don't know why I let her walk on me
She's impolite as she can be
Now I'm startin' to think
Hey, maybe I've been had

I treat that bad woman good
Lord, I need a Good Woman Bad
[Repeat 3x]
Yeah

11. The Difference Between a Woman and a Man

You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialize correctly.

Lyrics

You talk about your feelings
Sometimes I keep mine to myself
But that doesn't mean you're foolish
And you know I don't want anybody else
And you can say, "I love you."
Just like "hello" and "goodbye"
Well, I don't say it very often
But you know I'll love you till the day I die

Chorus:
That's just The Difference
Between A Woman And A Man
Thank God for that difference
When we both understand
A woman and a man

I turn on like a light bulb
You warm up like an iron
And you might take a little longer
But you're into it just as strong as I am

Repeat Chorus

A woman and a man
A woman and a man
