Lyrics

           Been Around

I've been taking time, counting days gone by 

But I find it hard, the number is so high 

Cause I've been around, oh yeah I've been around 

Before I started roaming, I hadn't ventured far 

Sitting by my mother's side, riding in the car 

Now I've been around, oh yeah I've been around 

                 

                          -Chorus- 

                 I've seen places I never thought I'd see 

                 Wandered paths tread by ancient feet 

                 Many times lost and found....I've been around 

 

People often ask me, what's it all about 

Now I find I whisper, what I used to shout 

Cause I've been around, oh yeah I've been around 

The peak I reach is higher but like the valley low 

One day I'm in heaven, then I'm broke down on the road 

Cause I've been around, oh yeah I've been around 

                           - Chorus - 

Someday when I'm older, I'll sit and rest awhile 

Knowing that I've wandered, I'll be satisfied 

Cause I've been around, oh yeah I've been around 

When I die don't bury me, in some lonesome grave 

Take my ashes with me, to scatter 'long the way 

Cause I've been around, oh yeah I've been around 

                          - Chorus -

 

               Young Man Lives

Young men don't dream about dying old

A young man wants to rock n' roll

Never looking out where to lay his head

A young man sleeps when he is dead

                        -Chorus-

           Let me tell you how it is

           A young man just lives....A young man, he just lives

 

A young man thinks he'll never reach the grave

And he don't know the difference 'tween stupid and brave

His only aim is to follow his cravings

He ain't trying to build no savings

                      -Chorus-          

You might ask how it is I know?

Well this ain't some secret hidden way down low

Just like everyman alive you meet

They were a young man once like I used to be

                     -Chorus-

 

              Moving On

I've been lied to a thousand times

I've been cheated, I've been a victim of most crimes

I've been told that I'm not wanted

That I must move along, that I can not stick around

 

And people surely love to talk

And when they do their words will put you in a box

Say whatever makes them feel right

They won't give you an inch, damn sure won't give you a mile

 

                  -Chorus-

      Cause I don't know where I belong

      But the place I am seems better with me gone

      I've always been a rolling stone

      If there's nothing left for me, nothing left to see

      I'm moving on

 

I packed my bags and I wiped the dust

Off of the only things that I trust

These worn out shoes have carried me a long way

And they know the deal, it's moving time today

                 - Chorus- 

Where I'm bound I can not say

The question is for another day

The truth is that it doesn't matter

I'm gone for now, I'm finally on my way

                 -Chorus- 

 

       The Girl I Left Behind

Long ago I had it good

Solid ground's where I stood

I had a love true and fine

With the girl I left behind

 

At that age love came easy

My only want was to please me

Now I see that I was blind

To leave the girl I left behind

 

            - Chorus -

       Now I wish I had stayed

       Like a fool I turned the other way

      Another love I'll never find

      Like the girl I left behind

 

Now I'm only killing time

Longing for the girl I left behind

Her memory fills the air

Like the wind in her hair

 

The thought of her returning

Lingers in my mind

Hidden deep in dark corners

Oh the girl I left behind

         - Chorus - 

 

       Best of Everything

Ain't it funny how Pharaoh gets the best of everything?

That boy was born with world on a string

He only drinks the finest wine

While mine tastes like turpentine...Ain't it funny how pharaoh gets the best of everything?

 

Pharaoh is a man who does not earn his keep

I'm a workin' in the sun while he's in the shade asleep

He wants us to build him a pyramid

I think I'm gonna flip my lid....Ain't it funny how pharaoh gets the best of everything?

 

                      - Chorus -

        I remember when his daddy used to rule the land

       All of Egypt was at his command

       One day his wife gave to him a son

       That boy sure is a lucky one....Ain't it funny how pharaoh gets the best of everything?

 

Have you noticed how Pharaoh's hands stay so clean

And he's a livin' in the desert but his grass grows so green

He's got this place wrapped around his finger

And all day long his servants linger...Ain't it funny how pharaoh gets the best of everything?

                 - Chorus -

I know it seems crazy but someday we'll be free

There's a man I know who says it's God's decree

If we walk with him we'll be smelling roses

So I'm gonna cling to the side of Moses...Ain't it funny how pharaoh gets the best of everything?

                 - Chorus - 

 

           Cover More Ground

Went a day without a drink

Gave me time to stop and think

Good Lord help me now

Wish I was back with my barroom crowd

 

Down at the old saloon

Dropping my dime to watch a tune

Spin on the old jukebox

Making me think of what we've lost

 

                 - Chorus - 

      Gotta cover just a little more ground

      Wipe the sweat from my brow

      If we don't like how we're living now

      Gotta cover just a little more ground 

 

Some folks are born to run

Others sit and strum

Take time, make the rounds

Spend a few days in your town

 

All together, count of three

Come and take the best of me

Leave all remains behind

Lighten the load to ease my mind

                 -Chorus-

 Been living like I'm on the outs

Half a mind, full of doubts

I need love, I need it know

Hitch my horse to the plow

 

Something called, I came to see

I drove west and I could breathe

Felt good, warmed my soul

And I carried it back to the eastern shore

               -Chorus-

 

           Give Your Heart

If you give your heart to me

Then you won't have to waste it

All my life I've waited

And now I can taste it

 

If you want the love you need

Then go on and take it

This ain't no fantasy

Part of me is vacant

 

                      - Chorus -

         It's not hard to see, if you close your eyes and dream

        I'm gonna make you a believer, if you run with me

 

I'm waiting patiently

So you don't need to hurry

This is my specialty

Darlin' you don't need to worry

 

I'll drop everything

Come and drive down my street

Till the end of time

Feel your every heart beat

                 -Chorus-

 

            Next Time I'll Win

When she left me she took it all

She left no choice but for me to fall

She took the house, she took the dog

Now I'm sleeping inside a log

 

               -Chorus-

      She put my back against the wall

      Everything I have is gone

      Well that's all right, let me fall

      That's alright, let me fall, pick myself up and stand tall 

 

It took some time but now I'm back

I found a new job bought a vintage Cadillac

And my love, she's so fine

Like the time before, how could I have been so blind

             -Chorus- 

 I never thought that love could be so cruel

Now I see that I am such a fool

The words are written, I've read the writing

It's all because love leaves me pining

            -Chorus- 

 

            Love You Tonight

 

When the evening comes and our eyes are tired

We take our places by the fire

Like a script our life became

I'm begging for a change

 

It's fair to say we share the blame

Can't we both agree?

We're running low on love in our lives

I think I know what we need

 

                -Chorus-

         So I'm gonna love you tonight, Just a little bit more

         Than I have for a while

         I'm gonna love you tonight, I'm gonna make you feel good

         I'm gonna love you tonight

 

When I look in your eyes, I can still feel the flame

That made worlds collide

Won't you sit right here, let me whisper in your ear

I'm gonna love you tonight

 

        When I take you in my arms, you'll melt into me

        We're gonna watch this fire burn down, just you wait and see 

                  -Chorus-

 

Forget about the plans you made

Tell your friends they'll have to wait

I long to be your alibi

I want to love you tonight

 

        When I take you in my arms, you'll melt into me 

        We're gonna watch this fire burn down, just you wait and see  

                  -Chorus-
