    Callin' Baton Rouge

    I spent last night in the arms
    Of a girl in Louisiana
    And though I'm out on the highway
    My thoughts are still with her
    Such a strange combination of a woman and a child
    Such a strange situation stoppin' every hundred miles
    Callin' Baton Rouge

    A replay of last night's events
    Roll through my mind
    Except a scene or two
    Erased by sweet red wine
    And I see a truck stop sign ahead
    So I change lanes
    I need a cup of coffee
    And a couple dollars change
    Callin' Baton Rouge

    Operator won't you put me on through
    I gotta' send my love down to Baton Rouge
    Hurry up won't you put her on the line
    I gotta' talk to the girl just one more time

    Hello Samantha dear, I hope you're feelin' fine
    And it won't be long until I'm with you all the time
    But until then I'll spend my money up right down to
    my last dime
    Callin' Baton Rouge

    Operator won't you put me on through
    I gotta' send my love down to Baton Rouge
    Hurry up won't you put her on the line
    I gotta' talk to the girl just one more time

    Callin' Baton Rouge
    Sweet Baton Rouge, my Baton Rouge



    Two Of A Kind, Workin' On A Full House

    Hey, she's my lady luck
    And I'm her wild card man
    Together we're buildin' up a real hot hand
    We live out in the country
    Hey, she's my little Queen of the South
    Yea, we're two of a kind
    Workin' on a full house

    She wakes me every mornin'
    With a smile and a kiss
    Her strong country lovin' is hard to resist
    She's my easy lovin' woman
    I'm her hard-workin' man, no doubt
    Yea, we're two of a kind
    Workin' on a full house

    Yea, a pickup truck is her limousine
    And her favorite dress is her faded blue jeans
    She loves me tender when the goin' gets tough
    Somtimes we fight just so we can make up

    Lord, I need that little woman
    Like the crops need the rain
    She's my honeycomb and I'm her sugar cane
    We really fit together
    If you know what I'm talkin' about
    Yea, we're two of a kind
    Workin' on a full house

    This time I found a keeper, I made up my mind
    Lord, the perfect combination is her heart and mine
    The sky's the limit, no hill is too steep
    We're playin' for fun, but we're playin' for keeps

    So draw the curtain, honey
    Turn the lights down low
    We'll find some country music on the radio
    I'm yours and you're mine
    That's what it's all about
    Yea, we're two of a kind
    Workin' on a full house

    Lordy, mama, we'll be two of a kind
    Workin' on a full house



    Shameless

    Well I'm shamemeless
    When it comes to loving you
    I'll do anything you want me to
    I'll do anything at all

    And I'm standing here for all the world to see
    Oh baby, that's what's left of me
    Don't have very far to fall

    You know now I'm not a man who's ever been
    Insecure about the world I've been living in
    I don't break easy, I have my pride
    But if you need to be satisfied

    I'm shameless, oh honey, I don't have a prayer
    Every time I see you standin' there
    I go down upon my knees

    And I'm changing, swore I'd never compromise
    Oh, but you convinced me otherwise
    I'll do anything you please

    You see in all my life I've never found
    What I couldn't resist, what I couldn't turn down
    I could walk away from anyone I ever knew
    But I can't walk away from you

    I have never let anything have this much control over me
    I work too hard to call my life my own
    And I've made myself a world and it's worked so perfectly
    But it's your world now, I can't refuse
    I've never had so much to lose...
    Oh, I'm shameless

    You know it should be easy for a man who's strong
    To say he's sorry or admit when he's wrong
    I've never lost anything I've ever missed
    But I've never been in love like this...

    God, It's out of my hands

    I'm shameless, 'Cause I don't have the power now
    I don't want it anyhow
    So I got to let it go

    Oh, I'm shameless, shameless as a man can be
    You make a total fool of me
    I just wanted to you to know

    Oh, I'm shameless



    Papa Loved Mama

    Papa drove a truck nearly all his life
    You know it drove mama crazy being a trucker's wife
    The part she couldn't handle was the being alone
    I guess she needed more to hold than just a telephone
    Papa called Mama each and every night
    Just to ask her how she was and if us kids were alright
    Mama would wait for that call to come in
    When Daddy'd hang up then she was gone again

    Mama was a looker
    Lord, how she shined
    Papa was a good'n
    But the jealous kind
    Papa loved Mama
    Mama loved men
    Mama's in the graveyard
    Papa's in the pen

    Well, it was bound to happen and one night it did
    Papa came home and it was just us kids
    He had a dozen roses and a bottle of wine
    If he was lookin' to surprise us, he was doin' fine
    I heard him cry for Mama up and own the hall
    Then I heard a bottle break against the bedroom wall
    That old diesel engine made an eerie sound
    When Papa fired it up and headed into town

    Well, the picture in the paper showed the scene real well
    Papa's rig was buried in the local motel
    The desk clerk said he saw it all real clear
    He never hit the brakes and he was shifting gears

    Mama was a looker
    Lord, how she shined
    Papa was a good'n
    But the jealous kind
    Papa loved Mama
    Mama loved men
    Mama's in the graveyard
    Papa's in the pen



    The Thunder Rolls (The Long Version)

    Three thirty in the morning
    Not a soul insight
    The city's lookin' like a ghost town
    On a moonless summer night
    Raindrops on the windshield
    There's a storm moving in
    He's headin' back from somewhere
    That he never should have been
    And the thunder rolls
    And the thunder rolls

    Every light is burnin'
    In a house across town
    She's pacin' by the telephone
    In her faded flannel gown
    Askin' for miracle
    Hopin' she's not right
    Prayin' it's the weather
    That's kept him out all night
    And the thunder rolls
    And the thunder rolls

    CHORUS

    The thunder rolls
    And the lightnin' strikes
    Another love grows cold
    On a sleepless night
    As the storm blows on
    Out of control
    Deep in her heart
    The thunder rolls

    She's waitin' by the window
    When he pulls into the drive
    She rushes out to hold him
    Thankful he's alive
    But on the wind and rain
    A strange e new perfume blows
    And the lightnin' flashes in her eyes
    And he knows that she knows
    And the thunder rolls
    And the thunder rolls

    CHORUS

    She comes back down the hallway
    And through the bedroom door
    She reaches for the pistol
    Kept in the dresser drawer

    She tells the lady in the mirror
    "He won't do this again"
    Cause tonight will be the last time
    She'll wonder where he's been



    We Shall Be Free

    We shall be free
    We shall be free
    So, have a little faith
    And hold out
    We shall be free

    SOME TALKING IN THE BACKGROUND

    This ain't comin' from no prophet
    Just an ordinary man
    When I close my eyes I see
    The way this world shall be
    When we all walk hand in hand

    When the last child cries for a crust of bread
    When the last man dies for just words that he said
    When there's shelter over the poorest head
    Then we shall be free

    When the last thing we notice is the color of skin
    And the first thing we look for is the beauty within
    When the skies and the oceans are clean again
    Then we shall be free

    We shall be free
    We shall be free
    So, have a little faith and hold out
    'Cause we shall be free

    When we're free to love anyone we choose
    When this world's big enough for all different views
    When we're all free to worship
    From our own kind of pew
    Then we shall be free
    We shall be free

    We shall be free
    We shall be free
    Stand straight, walk proud
    'Cause we shall be free

    And when money talks for the very last time
    And nobody walks a step behind
    When there's only one race and that's mankind
    Then we shall be free

    We shall be free
    We shall be free
    Together, Forever
    We shall be free

    We shall be free
    We shall be free
    Stand straight, pour out

    We shall be free

    We shall be free
    We shall be free
    Together, Forever
    We shall be free



    Unanswered Prayers

    Just the other night at a hometown football game
    My wife and I ran into my old high school flame
    And as I introduced them the past came back to me
    And I couldn't help but think of the way things used to be

    She was the one that I wanted for all times
    And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
    And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
    I'd never ask for anything again

    Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
    Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
    That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
    Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

    She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
    And I could tell that time had changed me
    In her eyes too it seemed
    We tried to talk about the old days
    There wasn't much we could recall
    I guess the Lord knows what he's doin' after all

    And as she walked away
    Well I looked at my wife
    And then and there I thanked the good Lord
    For the gifts in my life

    Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
    Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
    That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
    Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered...
    Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
    Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers



    Standing Outside The Fire

    We call them cool
    Those hearts that have no scars to show
    The ones that never do let go
    And risk the tables being turned

    We call them fools
    Who have to dance within the flame
    Who chance the sorrow and the shame
    That always comes with getting burned

    But you've got to be tough when consumed by desire
    'Cause it's not enough just to stand outside the fire

    We call them strong
    Those who can face this world alone
    Who seem to get by on their own
    Those who will never take the fall

    We call them weak
    Who are unable to resist
    The slightest chance love might exist
    And for that forsake it all

    They're so hell-bent on giving, walking a wire
    Convinced it's not living if you stand outside the fire

    Standing outside the fire
    Standing outside the fire
    Life is not tried, it is merely survived
    If you're standing outside the fire

    There's this love that is burning
    Deep in my soul
    Constantly yearning to get out of control
    Wanting to fly higher and higher
    I can't abide
    Standing outside the fire

    Standing outside the fire
    Standing outside the fire
    Life is not tried, it is merely survived
    If you're standing outside the fire

    Standing outside the fire
    Standing outside the fire
    Life is not tried, it is merely survived
    If you're standing outside the fire

    It's Your Song

    Standing in the spotlight
    On such a perfect night
    Knowing that your out there listening
    I remember one time
    When I was so afraid
    Didn't think I had the courage
    To stand up on this stage
    Then you reached into my heart
    And you found the melody
    And if there ever was somebody
    Who made me believe in me
    It was you
    It was you

    It was your song that made me sing
    It was your voice that gave me wings
    And it was your light that shined
    Guiding my heart to find
    This place where I belong
    It was your song

    Every night I pray
    Before the music starts to play
    That I'll do my best and I won't let you down
    And for all the times I've stood here
    This feeling feels brand new
    And any time I doubt myself I think of you

    'Cause It was your song that made me sing
    It was your voice that gave me wings
    And it was your light that shined
    Guiding my heart to find
    This place where I belong
    It was your song

    Dreams can come true
    With God's great angels like you

    It was your song that made me sing
    It was your voice that gave me wings
    And it was your light that shined
    Guiding my heart to find
    This place where I belong
    It was your song
    It was your song
    It's always been your song



    Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)

    This ol' highway's getting longer
    Seems there ain't no end in sight
    To sleep would be best, but I just can't afford to rest
    I've got to ride in Denver tomorrow night

    I called the house but no one answered
    For the last two weeks no one's been home
    I guess she's through with me, to tell the truth I just can't see
    What's kept the woman holding on this long

    And the white line's getting longer and the saddle's getting cold
    I'm much too young to feel this damn old
    All my cards are on the table with no ace left in the hole
    I'm much too young to feel this damn old

    The competition's getting younger
    Tougher broncs, you know I can't recall
    The worn out tape of Chris LeDoux, lonely women and bad booze
    Seem to be the only friends I've left at all

    GOD BLESS CHRIS LeDOUX!

    And the white line's getting longer and the saddle's getting cold
    I'm much too young to feel this damn old
    All my cards are on the table with no ace left in the hole
    I'm much too young to feel this damn old

    Lord, I'm much too young to feel this damn old



    The River

    You know a dream is like a river
    Ever changin' as it flows
    And a dreamer's just a vessel
    That must follow where it goes
    Trying to learn from what's behind you
    And never knowing what's in store
    Makes each day a constant battle
    Just to stay between the shores

    And I will sail my vessel
    'Til the river runs dry
    Like a bird upon the wind
    These waters are my sky
    I'll never reach my destination
    If I never try
    So I will sail my vessel
    'Til the river runs dry

    Too many times we stand aside
    And let the waters slip away
    'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow
    It has now become today
    So don't you sit upon the shoreline
    And say you're satisfied
    Choose to chance the rapids
    And dare to dance that tide

    And I will sail my vessel
    'Til the river runs dry
    Like a bird upon the wind
    These waters are my sky
    I'll never reach my destination
    If I never try
    So I will sail my vessel
    'Til the river runs dry

    There's bound to be rough waters
    And I know I'll tke soome falls
    With the good Lord as my captain
    I can make it through them all

    And I will sail my vessel
    'Til the river runs dry
    Like a bird upon the wind
    These waters are my sky
    I'll never reach my destination
    If I never try
    So I will sail my vessel
    'Til the river runs dry

    Lord, I will sail my vessel
    'Til the river runs dry
    Yea
