Track Name: DAMP AS DEW
WELL, MY RIGHT FOOT'S DRY AND MY LEFT FOOT'S DAMP AS DEW
MY RIGHT FOOT'S DRY AND MY LEFT FOOT'S DAMP AS DEW
I'VE BEEN CREEPIN THROUGH THE BACK YARD
GREAT BIG HOLE IN MY SHOE

I STAYED TOO LATE AT THE HONKY-TONK
TIL I COULDN'T DRIVE AND I HAD TO WALK....

SHOULD-A MADE IT IN BEFORE THE SUN WENT DOWN
I'VE BEEN LEAVIN' TRACKS ALL OVER TOWN....

PORCH LIGHT'S ON, MY KEY FITS THE DOOR
SHE BOUND TO SEE THAT PRINT ON THE FLOOR.....
Track Name: ROOSTER ROCK
IN THIS BARNYARD I'M KING COCK OF THE ROOST
I STAY OUT ALL NIGHT DRINKIN THAT MOONSHINE JUICE
I DON'T SHOW TO CROW TIL THE CRACK OF NOON

AND ALL THE HEN'S GO "COO COO COCK-DOODE-DOO
LOOK AT THAT ROOSTER ROCK"
COO COO COCK-A-DOODLE-DO
LOOK AT THAT ROOSTER ROCK
THEY AIN'T NEVER SEEN A ROOSTER DO SUCH A CRAZY BOP

IF ANOTHER RED ROOSTER COMES A CREEPIN AROUND MY HEN
HE WON'T BELIEVE THE WAY THAT I'LL FLY INTO HIM
HE WILL BE TOO CHICKEN TO EVER COCK FIGHT AGAIN....

SITTIN' ON A TREE LIMB CHECKIN OUT THE CHICKEN SCRATCH
FARMER'S IN THE SMOKE HOUSE COOKIN UP ANOTHER BATCH
ALL THE CHICKS CALL MY DADDY-O DONTCHA KNOW
WHEN THEY HATCH....
Track Name: MOON OVER MEMPHIS
THERE'S A MOON OVER MEMPHIS
LOOKIN DOWN ON WHAT I'VE DONE
THERE'S A MOON OVER MEMPHIS
LOOKIN DOWN ON WHAT I'VE DONE
IT'S SHININ' THROUGH THE SMOKE
FROM THE BARREL OF MY GUN

THAT MOON OVER MEMPHIS
IT DON'T UNDERSTAND
THAT MOON OVER MEMPHIS
IT JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND
THAT I FOUND MY WOMAN IN THE ARMS OF ANOTHER MAN

THE SUN IN CHICAGO, IT WON'T ASK ME WHY
I RAN AWAY FROM MEMPHIS AND A MAN HAD TO DIE
BUT THERE'S A MOON OVER MEMPHIS
LOOKIN' DOWN ON WHAT I'VE DONE
IT'S SHININ' THROUGH THE SMOKE
FROM THE BARREL OF MY GUN

THAT MOON OVER MEMPHIS IS HANGIN' LIKE A JUDGE
THAT MOON OVER MEMPHIS IS HANGIN' LIKE A JUDGE
IT'S SHOWIN NO MERCY ON A MAN THAT HELD A GRUDGE

THE STARS UP IN HEAVEN, WILL NEVER SEE MY FACE
FOR WHAT I DID IN MEMPHIS, CAN NEVER BE ERASED
THERE'S A MOON OVER MEMPHIS
LOOKIN' DOWN ON WHAT I'VE DONE
IT'S SHININ' THROUGH THE SMOKE
FROM THE BARREL OF MY GUN

THERE'S A MOON OVER MEMPHIS
THERE'S A MOON OVER MEMPHIS
THERE'S A MOON OVER MEMPHIS
LOOKIN' DOWN ON WHAT I'VE DONE
IT'S SHININ' THROUGH THE SMOKE
FROM THE BARREL OF MY GUN
Track Name: MOUSETRAP
BUILD A BETTER MOUSETRAP, BABY
IF YOU WANNA CATCH ME
BETTER BUILD A BETTER MOUSETRAP, BABY
WITH WHAT YOU GOT FOR CHEESE
BUILD A BETTER MOUSETRAP, BABY
IF YOU WANNA SNAP MY NECK
BUILD A BETTER MOUSETRAP, BABY
THE BEST LAID PLANS, I'LL WRECK
THE BEST LAID PLANS, I WILL WRECK

YOU GONNA NEED A REAL TALL LADDER
IF YOU WANNA GET ON MY ROOF
BUT WHAT I SAY DON'T MATTER
START CLIMBIN' IF YOU WANT PROOF

YOU GONNA NEED A REAL SHARP SHOVEL
IF YOU WANNA DIG DOWN MY DITCH
THE LOVE OF MONEY AIN'T NOTHIN' BUT TROUBLE
MORE THAN ONE WAY TO FEEL RICH

(CHORUS)

JESUS SAID, "LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR"
THE WORLD SAY, "STAB HIS BACK"
CONTINUE TO READ YOUR PAPER
WITH YOUR HAND ON YOUR MONEY STACK

GOT MY EYES ON THE HORIZON
I'M A FINALLY FEELIN' WELL
CHANGE AIN'T THAT SURPRISIN'
ONCE YOU DONE YOUR TIME IN HELL

(CHORUS)
CONTINUE TO READ YOUR PA
Track Name: GIVIN' ME THE NERVOUS
LATELY MY BABY
BEEN GIVIN' ME THE NERVOUS
LATELY MY BABY
BEEN GIVIN' ME THE NERVOUS
LATELY MY BABY BEEN GIVIN' ME THE NERVOUS LOOK

SHE STEPS AROUND ME WHEN WE PASS IN THE HALL
SHE GO TO GET THE LADDER EVEN THOUGH I'M TALL
SHE PULL THE PLUG WHEN I WANNA SHARE A BATH
IT ALL ADDS UP, BUT I DON'T WANNA DO THE MATH

(CHORUS)

SHE GO DIVIN' FOR THE TELEPHONE EVERY TIME IT RING
SOMETIME SHE PICK IT UP AND SHE DON'T SAY A THING
SHE RIGHT ABOVE MY SHOULDER WHEN I OPEN UP THE MAIL
SOMETHIN' GOIN' ON HERE, I JUST CAN'T TELL

(CHORUS)

IT'S A TIMID, OUT THERE ON A LIMB TOO FAR,
BOTH HANDS IN THE COOKIE JAR,
CAN'T GET OFF THE HOOK,
NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH
NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH
NERVOUS LOOK

LATELY MY BABY, BEEN GIVIN ME THE NERVOUS
LATELY M BABY, BEEN GIVIN ME THE NERVOUS
LATELY MY BABY, BEEN GIVIN ME THE NERVOUS LOOK
Track Name: ABSOTIVELY, POSILUTELY
ABSOTIVELY, POSILUTELY YOU CONFUSE ME BABY
CAN'T EXPRESS THE WAY I FEEL FOR YOU INSIDE
EVERY TIME I START TO REVEAL MY HEART
I'M ABSOTIVELY, POSILUTELY TONGUE-TIED

I CAN'T EVEN SAY WHAT I WANNA SAY WHEN I TRY TO SAY:
I LOVE YOU
IT CERTAINLY HURTS MY CHANCE TO PROVE MY LOVE IS TRUE
I TAKE THE WRONG ANGLE, MY BEST LINE GETS TANGLED
UP, AND THEN I'M DOWN TO FINDIN' NEW WAYS TO GET THROUGH
TO YOU

(CHORUS)

YOU MAKE ME COME UN-DONE YOUR THE ONE THE VERY ONE
I HAVE LONGED FOR
KNOCK KNOCK OPPORTUNITY IS FINALLY AT MY DOOR
SAY YOU BEEN FEELIN' THE SAME WAY I'M FEELIN'
ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF YOU AND ME
MORE-EVER FOR.

(CHORUS)
Track Name: REMEMBER ROCK-N-ROLL?
DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER ROCK-N-ROLL?
DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER ROCK-N-ROLL?
DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER ROCK-N-ROLL?
I DON'T. I DON'T

IT AIN'T FINAL TIL IT'S VINYL
AIN'T FACTS TIL IT'S WAX
TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL
GONNA BREAK THE CAMEL BACK
BANG A GONG DON'T HANG AROUND LONG
ENOUGH TO LET LOVE DO YOU WRONG

(CHORUS)

TELL ME TO REMEMBER EVERYTHING I BEEN TOLD
TELL ME TO REMEMBER EVERYTHING I BEEN TOLD
TELL ME TO REMEMBER EVERYTHING I BEEN TOLD
BUT I WON'T. I WON'T

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH
YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH
YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH
YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

MAMA IN HER BEEHIVE CRINOLIN CREPE
BLACK AND GREY MOVIE ON THE WHITE SHEET DRAPED
ON THE WALL DOWN THE HALL
I'M A SPINNIN' ON MY BIG WHEEL
DADDY FOUND WEED IN HIS GUITAR CASE
MY BROTHER SAID, "MAN, GO GET OUTTA MY FACE"
NOT ANYMORE SLAM THE DOOR
I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO FEEL

(CHORUS)

IT AIN'T FINAL TIL IT'S VINYL
IT AIN'T FACTS TIL IT'S WAX
TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL
GONNA BREAK THE CAMEL BACK
BANG A GONG DON'T HANG AROUND LONG
ENOUGH TO LET LOVE DO YOU WRONG

REMEMBER SAYIN' EVERYBODY GONNA GET OLD?
REMEMBER SAYIN' EVERYBODY GONNA GET OLD?
REMEMBER SAYIN' EVERYBODY GONNA GET OLD?
BUT I WON'T. I WON'T

(YEAH, YEAH'S)

(CHORUS)
Track Name: THE BRIDE IS HOT
I NEVER MADE IT TO THE BACHELOR PARTY
I WAS OUT ALL NIGHT WITH THE BRIDE
HOW'M I GONNA TELL MY GOOD FRIEND IN THE MORNIN'
THAT HIS SWEET BABY LIED? TIE THE KNOT
SHE LOVES THE BEST MAN, TOO.

WE WE'RE STANDIN' IN FRONT OF THE PREACHER
HE SAID, "BOY, GIVE THE GROOM HIS RING
HAS ANYBODY GOT AN OBJECTION?"
I SAID, "YEA, THERE'S ONE LITTLE THING

(CHORUS)

CONGREGATION WASN'T HAPPY
BRIDE SHE TURNT A SHADE OF RED
PREACHER MAN TURNED TO THE BRIDE GROOM
SAID, "CAN SHE MARRY HIM INSTEAD?"

(CHORUS)
Track Name: TWO WHITE DOGS
THEM TWO WHITE DOGS ARE ALWAYS AROUND
EVERY TIME I SEE 'EM, THEY JUST LAYIN' DOWN
STARIN' AT ME PASSIN' LIKE TWO SPHINXES ON THE GROUND
THEM TWO WHITE DOGS ARE ALWAYS AROUND

THEM TWO WHITE DOGS ARE GUARDIN' THE PLACE
LIKE TWIN TIN SOLDIERS THY SHARE THE SAME FACE
EVERY STRANGE MOVEMENT THEIR TALL EARS TRACE
THEM TWO WHITE DOGS THEY GUARDIN' THE PLACE

NEVER SEEN ANYBODY FEED 'EM
NEVER SAW A SOUL STIR
THEY SAY THE OLD MAN LIVES ALONE IN THERE
SINCE HE BURIED HER
THAT ALL HIS MONEY'S UP THE CHIMNEY
SO HE NEVER LIGHTS THE LOGS
I'D GO GET IT IT IF IT WEREN'T FOR THEM TWO WHITE DOGS
I'D GO GET IT IT IF IT WEREN'T FOR THEM TWO WHITE DOGS

THE TWO WHITE DOGS THEY PARALYZE ME
WHEN I TRY TO SNEAK UP ON 'EM AND POISON THEIR FEED
OR SHOOT 'EM FROM THE HILL WITH MY OLD 33
THEM TWO WHITE DOGS THEY PARALYZE ME

(CHORUS)

MAYBE THEM TWO WHITE DOGS TOOK THEIR OWNER'S SOULS
MAYBE THE OLD MAN DIED TOO AND NOBODY KNOWS
WHEREVER ONE IS, THE OTHER ONE GOES
MAYBE THEM TWO WHITE DOGS TOOK THEIR OWNER'S SOULS

(CHORUS)
Track Name: HILLBILLY TRAIN
AT THE BIG CITY STATION SITS A HILLBILLY TRAIN
WITH A SOUTHERN DESTINATION, AND IT'S CALLIN' MY NAME
I BEEN WORKIN' THIS ASSEMBLY LINE TOO LONG
HILLBILLY TRAIN, TAKE ME BACK WHERE I BELONG

HILLBILLY TRAIN, HILLBILLY TRAIN
HILLBILLY TRAIN, SHOW ME THEM SOUTHERN LIGHTS
I WANNA ROLL IN MY SWEET BABY'S ARMS TONIGHT

THE MAN WITH THE TICKETS, HE DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY
THIS COUNTRY BOY IS LEAVIN' THE BIG CITY LIFE
I THOUGHT HIS TOWN WAS GONNA SET ME FREE
BUT WHAT I'M MISSIN' IS DOWN IN TENNESSEE

(CHORUS)

WHEN I STEPPED ON BOARD I WAS SURPRISED TO SEE
IT WAS FULL OF LONESOME BOYS LIKE ME
HEADIN' BACK DOWN WHERE THE PEOPLE ALL SMILE
HILLBILLY TRAIN ROLL AWAY THE MILES
Track Name: POOR BY THAT I AM
I PLAY THIS GUITAR
POOR BOY THAT I AM
LIKE IT DON'T BELONG IN MY HAND

I SING MY SONG
POOR BOY THAT I AM
LIKE IT'S ALL I CAN CALL MY OWN

BUT I NEVER HAVE ANYTHING REAL TO SAY
I FEEL I GOT SO MUCH TO HIDE
I'M EVEN AFRAID TO LAY CLAIM
TO WHAT'S INSIDE OF ME
POOR BOY THAT I AM
POOR BOY THAT I AM
POOR BOY THAT I AM

I HOLD YOU AND I PLAY YOU
LIKE THIS SIX STRING MADE OF PINE
STILL I WON'T DO WHAT I OUGHT TO
TO MAKE YOU TRULY MINE

(CHORUS)
Track Name: WOULD I?
WOULD I, WOULD I, WOULD I?

WOULD I GO OUT HONKY-TONKIN' WITH YOU EVERY NIGHT
DANCE EVERY DANCE TIL I GOT 'EM ALL RIGHT
WOULD I DO EVERY STEP THE WAY YOU THOUGHT I SHOULD?
IF I HAD YOU BABY, MAYBE, YES I WOULD

WOULD I?

WOULD I WAKE UP EVERY MORNIN' BRING YOU BREAKFAST IN BED?
WITH THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF BUTTER ON YOUR TOASTED BREAD?
WOULD I FIX YOU BRUNCH AND LUNCH AN DINNER JUST AS GOOD?
IF I HAD YOU BABY, MAYBE, YES I WOULD

IF I HAD YOU THERE'D BE NOTHIN' YOU COULD DO OR SAY
TO EVER MAKE ME MAKE YOU GO AWAY

WOULD I, WOULD I, WOULD I?

WOULD I CUT MY HAIR AND CHANGE THE WAY I DRESS?
WOULD I FINALLY GET AROUND TO CLEANIN UP THIS MESS?
WOULD I HAPPILY GIVE UP MY BACHELOR HOOD?
IF I HAD YOU BABY, MAYBE, YES I WOULD

WOULD I TEAR EVERYBODY FROM MY LITTLE BLACK BOOK?
TELL 'EM ALL I WAS OVER MY URGE TO LOOK
WOULD I MARRY YOU THEN JUS TO BE SURE THEY UNDERSTOOD
IF I HAD YOU BABY, MAYBE, YES I WOULD.

(CHORUS)
Track Name: PART OF ME
PART OF ME DON'T WANNA BE HERE NO MORE
THE OTHER PART OF ME JUST CAN'T SEEM
TO WALK OUT THE DOOR
AT THE HEART OF ME, THERE'S A NEED ONLY YOU FULFILL
AND THAT PART OF ME THAT WANTS TO LEAVE, NEVER WILL

PART OF ME GOES AWAY SOMETIMES
THE TRIPS I TAKE THE PLANS I MAKE ARE ONLY IN MY MIND
AT THE HEART OF ME YOU'RE THE ONE WHO KEEPS ME STILL
AND THAT PART OF ME THAT WANTS TO RUN NEVER WILL

TIME HAS A WAY OF CHANGING
EVERYTHING WE THINK IS TRUE
AND LIFE HAS A WAY OF REARRANGING THE PAIN
TIL THE BLESSING COMES THROUGH

STILL PART OF ME CAN ONLY SEE WHAT IS WRONG
ANOTHER PART OF ME KNOWS IT WILL BE
OKAY BEFORE TOO LONG
AT THE HEART OF ME I HOPE AND PRAY YOU KNOW IT'S REAL
THIS PART OF ME THAT WANTS TO STAY AND ALWAYS WILL

AND THAT PART OF ME THAT WANTS TO LEAVE,NEVER WILL
Track Name: WHAT TO DO
WHY DON'T YOU COME AROUND
I HEARD YOU'RE BACK IN TOWN
WHEN YOU WENT AWAY
I THOUGHT THAT'S WHERE YOU'D STAY
NOW I DON'T KNOW

DID YOU FIND SOMEONE THERE?
WHY SHOULD I CARE
WHO'S ON YOUR ARM
FALLIN' FOR YOUR CHARM
I DON'T KNOW
I JUST DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO ABOUT YOU, BABY
WHAT TO DO ABOUT YOU, BABY
WHAT TO DO ABOUT YOU , BABY
WHAT TO DO
WHAT TO DO ABOUT YOU, BABY
WHAT TO DO ABOUT YOU, BABY
WHAT TO DO ABOUT YOU, BABY
WHAT TO DO.

WHEN YOU WERE GONE
I COULD BE STRONG
NOW THAT YOU'RE HERE
IT'S COMING SO CLEAR
THAT I DON'T KNOW
I JUST DON'T KNOW

(CHORUS)
