Super Slab Showdown

Original and similar lyrics
Me an' Earl was workin' the superslab outside a' that Ogallala? When outta town come a local clown in a '65 Impala Had a 'coon tail flyin' off a' his whip antenna We was haulin' a load a' them go-go girls Truckin' 'em over to O-town Old boy got on his microphone Says How's about a little showdown? Well, hot damn, I'm a gamblin' man, So ev'rybody get yer bets down 'Cause this old truck gonna make us a buck Chicken in the bread pan, pickin' out vittles Swing them heifers and away we go Wake up, Earl, we gots to race that pile a' junk over ta North Platte city Well, one-eyed bears and deuces wild We got the back door pad-locked He says, Bet five bucks and a side a' beef, I can beat them cows ta Flat Rock. You hear that, Earl? He says he's gonna whip Ol' Bessie here! I says, Call your five and raise ya ten Jes' kiss that Chevy goodby, boy 'Cause when Bessie hits that floatin' gear You gonna be eatin' Hereford pie. Yeah. Well, hot damn, I'm a gamblin' man, So ev'rybody get yer bets down 'Cause this old truck gonna make us a buck She gonna round them curves at thirty gees A trunk full a' cows an' a hood full a' bees Move it up a notch, Earl. Yeah, that's it. That's floatin' gear! C'mon Bessie! Well, tuck it on in and head it for the barn If we don't win, we gonna sell the farm If this old wreck don't break my neck, We gonna take them cows to a discatheque I says, Come on, Earl, let's give it a whirl. That Chevy is a-pickin' up speed. Well, we crossed the Platte at a hundred flat Old Bessie was a-blowin' the weeds We definitely was in that Monfort lane. Yeah, we won the race with a bovine ace When the Chevy made a fatal pass Yeah, he got too close Got a terminal dose a' that good ol' Hereford gas. Phew! Hot damn, I'm a gamblin' man, So ev'rybody get yer bets down 'Cause this old truck's gonna make us a buck She's rollin' the boulevard shakedown Hot damn, I'm a truckin' man And I sorta like ta put my foot down This old rig gonna blow your wig Got go-go girls and a Peterbilt cab Gonna see ya all out on the superslab for a showdown

Rawhide

JAMIE T
[Jamie T:] Rawhide Singing on the motorway Gonna get to the post office Walk in the door look at the shopkeeper Say "hello sonny, where's your poppy? And how much money does he keep in his locky?" Well we heard him say and I walk away Has he got the time to go He screams to silence "dad's got no money And I don't like violence Take what you want though" That's enough of that Well they laid their plans of the mice and men Out on the kitchen floor Said rookie if you don't want to take the heat You better roll out that door Cause they're leaving five bout minutes in the car They're gonna go driving far And oh my god venomous hide We'll have hides of gold And they moved it out to move it in And I know what to do Said the young man who stood next to them No longer first of all not part of the crew Well oh I say same time, time is moving fast And motorways they fly by satellite towns of the M25 [Lily:] Come see all your slave You give all you gave I'm the one who tried to save the man I love Is it all talking true All the lies of me and you Is it all to with pride Young rawhide [x3] You lied tonight to me [Jamie T:] Well you drive away on the corner Waiting on the motorway (on the motorway) Then I slide down town to the bored satellite and the fight Walked in the door said sonny ain't funny funny ain't sonny hate me I'm fine and dandy got to hand me No-one makes no money for free Money money money Gonna get to the post office Walk in the door look at the shopkeeper Say "hello sonny, where's your poppy? And how much money does he keep in his lucky?" Well we heard him say as I walk away Has he got the time to go He screams to silence "dad's got no money And I don't like violence Take what you want though" Run run run your hideaway... Lied... Lied to me [Lily:] Come see all your slave You give all you gave I'm the one who tried to save the man I love Is it all talking true All the lies of me and you Is it all to with pride Young rawhide [x3] You lied to me [Jamie T:] Gonna get to the post office Walk in the door look at the shopkeeper Say "hello sonny, where's your poppy? And how much money does he keep in his lucky?" Gonna get to the post office Walk in the door look at the shopkeeper Say "hello sonny, where's your poppy? And how much money does he keep in his lucky?" [Lily:] Done?

Seven Days

CHRISTIAN KANE "The House Rules"
I'm a little heavy Waste boundin' down... Got a zero in the bank On my account. It's been a week since she's been home- That's seven days of on my own That's my number baby, Gonna lay my money down. My destination is dependin' on the right turn The right field of dreams. Well I'm rollin' down the highway Passin' on the hard way Burnin' gasoline... I'm seein' signs up ahead in lights, Vegas city limit lines. Tonight I'm gonna let it ride away. Well, I'm puttin' down everything I own On the mercy of these bones. Come on man, God bless these seven days! Yeah well I sold my Chevy for a couple hundred bucks I'm bettin' it all And I'm countin' on Lady Luck. Me and destiny have made a deal, You can't shake these nerves of steel. So come on, fate, let's see where we end up. My temptation's already left me with a hand, I can't even see But I'm gonna play 'em, I'm gonna hold 'em. Like a box-car keep rollin', These cards ain't got nothin' on me! I'm seein' signs up ahead in lights, Vegas city limit lines. Tonight I'm gonna let it ride away. Well, I'm puttin' down everything I own On the mercy of these bones. Come on man, God bless these seven days! Yeah well I'm gonna turn this table Into a one man show And I'm stackin' up my life To play on just one roll. Well seven's my best friend in town And yes, ma'am, I'll have another round But kiss these dice before I let 'em go! I'm seein' signs up ahead in lights, Vegas city limit lines. Tonight I'm gonna let it ride away. Well, I'm puttin' down everything I own On the mercy of these bones. Come on man, God bless these seven days! I'm puttin' down everything I own, On the mercy of these bones Come on man, God bless these seven days! Oh God bless these seven days.

Against The Grain

GARTH BROOKS "Ropin' The Wind"
Folks call me a maverick Guess I ain't too diplomatic I just never been the kind to go along Just avoidin' confrontation For the sake of conformation And I'll admit I tend to sing a different song But sometimes you just can't be afraid To wear a different hat If Columbus had complied This old world might still be flat Nothin' ventured, nothin' gained Sometimes you've got to go against the grain Well, I have been accused Of makin' my own rules There must be rebel blood Just a-runnin' through my veins But I ain't no hypocrite What you see is what you get And that's the only way I know To play the game Old Noah took much ridicule For building his great ark But after forty days and forty nights He was lookin' pretty smart Sometimes it's best to brave the wind and rain By havin' strength to go against the grain Well, there's more folks than a few Who share my point of view But they're worried If they're gonna sink or swim They'd like to buck the system But the deck is tacked against 'em And they're a little scared To go out on a limb But if you're gonna make a difference, if you're gonna leave your mark. You can't follow like a bunch of sheep You got to listen to your heart Go bustin' in like old John Wayne Sometimes you got to go against the grain Nothin' ventured, nothin' gained Sometimes you've got to go against the grain
