I Ain't Livin' Long Like This

Original and similar lyrics
I looked for trouble and I found it son Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun I try to run but I don't think I can You make one move and you're a dead man friend Ain't livin' long like this I ain't livin' long like this, am I baby? He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back He left me breathing, I was still a rockin' Got 'em all in the jailhouse I ain't livin' long like this Grew up in Houston off the Wayside Drive Son of a cop as an all night dive That double stock got to an early death All I remember was a drunk man's breath Ain't livin' long like this Ain't livin' long like this, am I baby? We know a story how the wheel goes 'round Don't let 'em take it to the man downtown Just leave it all in the jailhouse I ain't livin' long like this I looked for Angel, she's a roadhouse queen Make Texas Ruben look like Sandra Dee I wanna love her but I don't know how I'm at the bottom of the jailhouse now Ain't livin' long like this Ain't livin' long like this, am I baby? You know the story 'bout the jailhouse rock Go on and do it but just don't get caught I got 'em all in the jailhouse Ain't livin' long like this I ain't livin' long like this I ain't livin' long like this Ain't livin' long like this Ain't livin' long like this, am I baby?

I Ain't Living Long Like This

WAYLON JENNINGS "What Goes Around Comes Around"
I look for trouble and I found it son Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun I tried to run but I don't think I can You make one move and you're a dead man friend Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can I baby? He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back And left me reeling on a steel reel rack They got'em all in the jailhouse baby Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can I baby? Grew up in Houston off the wayside drives Son of a carhop and some all night dives Dad drove a stock car to an early death All I remember was a drunk man's breath Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can I baby? You know the story how the wheel goes 'round Don't let them take you to the man down town Can't sleep at all in a jailhouse baby Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can I baby? I live with Angel she's a roadhouse queen Makes Texas Ruby look like Sandra Dee I want to love her but I don't know how I'm at the bottom in the jailhouse now Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can I baby? You know the story about the jailhouse rock Don't want to do it but just don't get caught They got'em all in the jailhouse baby Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can I baby?

Long Way Home

JJ CALE "Closer To You"
Early in the morning, about a quarter to four Me and my girlfriend walkin' out the door We're heading for the car and we got right in And that's when I noticed the shape she was in She turned to me and said right out Let's steer it awhile, let's steer it about Take the long way home, take the long way home Make this night last Well we drove down town and up in the woods We drove around and around till I understood I was holding the wheel, she was making out And all this time I was driving about She was fondling my hair and hugging my neck And all I was thinking was, oh what the heck Take the long way home, take the long way home Make this night last I was looking in the mirror and to my surprise There was two big red lights shining in my eyes I pull over and he drove alongside And out of his car and up to my right He looked at her and she looked at him And the next thing I noticed he got right in Take the long way home, take the long way home Make this night last Take the long way home, take the long way home Take the long way home, take the long way home Make this night last

Melissa

JACKSON BROWNE "The Nina Music Demo (Songs By Jackson Browne)"
Melissa, I knew I just had to kiss ya Heaven knows what I had in mind When my eyes went blind And you had to take me home Because I could not find my way Mimi, you make my glasses steamy Heaven knows that I'll take a chance On a girl from France Just so long as we don't have to dance 'till dawn Maybe baby I'm not so smart But I know I'm not your brother And the way you affect me You needn't suspect me Of falling in love with another Daisy, your old man thinks I'm crazy Heaven knows I used to go insane When I heard your name I knew what I was doin' When I had my brain removed Maybe baby I'm not so smart I never claimed to be a thinker But you gotta respect me Cause the way you affect me I'll never have to be a drinker Bessie, my dreams of you are messy Heaven knows I used to lie awake And try to make my heart stop pounding Long enough to take my rest

Been To Canaan

CAROLE KING
Green fields and rolling hills room enough to do what we will. Sweet dreams of yestertime are running through my mind of a place I left behind. Been so long I can't remember when I've been to Cannan and I wanna go back again. Been so long I'm livin til then because I've been to Cannan And I won't rest until I go back again. Though I'm content with myself Sometimes I long to be somewhere else I try to do what I can, but with our day to day demands, we all need a promise land. Been so long I can't remember when I've been to Cannan and I wanna go back again. Been so long I'm livin til then because I've been to Cannan And I won't rest until I go back again. Oh, I want to be there in the wintertime with a fireplace burning to warm me and you to hold me when it's stormy. Been so long I can't remember when I've been to Cannan and I wanna go back again. Been so long I'm livin til then because I've been to Cannan And I won't rest until I go back again. because I've been to Cannan And I won't rest until I go back again.

Long Way Down

JAMES OTTO "Days Of Our Lives"
Sittin' in the seat of my old Olds Pretty city lights down far below Sittin' there soakin' up all of the heat of the fire You slide a little closer and whisper in my ear Never even get around to openin' those beers Bein' here with you girl, nothing could get me no higher [Chorus:] It's a long way down Baby, hold on to me Never let me touch the ground It's a long way down Scared i'm gonna fall without your lovin' arms around Well, love for you is such a natural thing You were born to spread those angel wings Every time you touch me, swear I feel light as a feather But it seems like every other corner I turn There's another busted heart that's crashed and burned Baby, just remember every time you take me to heaven [Chorus] So, tell me once again how high we're gonna go Take me far away from the world below We could be the few that make it all the way together 'Cause I could start this car and drive back into town Land us both safe on solid ground But after tonight, girl, you're gonna have to love me forever 'Cause it's a long way down Baby, hold on to me Never let me touch the ground Yeah it's a long, long way down Scared I'm gonna fall without your lovin' arms around Yeah yeah yeah... Yeah yeah, take me higher Take me higher Take me higher, yeah...
