JAMES OTTO lyrics - Days Of Our Lives

Lowdown On The Highlife

Original and similar lyrics
He played guitar in a honky-tonk band He drank Jack Daniels, black label brand He was the life of the party Till they closed down the bar In the eyes of a young boy, he was a star [Chorus:] He'd say, "son, don't you run down the roads that i've run And don't go and sing all the songs that i've sun 'Cause this kind of livin' takes its toll on a man And through the smoke and the neon i saw it first hand I got the lowdown on the highlife Bust still here i am." The blues and the bottle held him under their spell Took him to heaven and put us through hell Well, sometimes I feel him up on this stage His restless spirit Still runs through my veins [Chorus] I got the lowdown on the highlife But still here I am Mmm...

The Honky Tonk Kid

AARON WATSON "The Honky Tonk Kid"
He's wrinkled and gray but he's still got the fire And he sings on the stage like a bird on a wire He'll pack 'em in just like he always did Everybody loves The Honky Tonk Kid He got his first guitar when he was fifteen Thirstin' for knowledge, all hungry and green Strummin' that six string just like Lefty did Everybody loves The Honky Tonk Kid [Chorus:] Well the Honky Tonk Kid loves a honky tonk crowd He picks them up when this world gets them down All the smoke and the neon keep his pain here Nobody knows The Honky Tonk Kid Ten million fans and a hand full of friends He'll go home alone when each night ends He'll think about her and he'll twist off the lid Cause nobody loves The Honky Tonk Kid [Chorus x2] It won't be long the lord will take him away He'd sung his last song, they'll place a reef on his grave But he'll draw a crowd just like he always did One last goodbye for The Honky Tonk Kid

Chasin' That Neon Rainbow

ALAN JACKSON "Here In The Real World"
Daddy won a radio Tuned it to a country show I was rocking in the cradle to the crying of a steel guitar Mama used to sing to me She taught me that sweet harmony Now she worries 'cause she never thought I'd ever really take it this far Singing in the bars and Chasin' the neon rainbow Livin' that honky tonk dream 'Cause all I've ever wanted Is too pick this guitar and sing Just trying to be somebody Just wanna be heard and seen Chasin' that neon rainbow Livin' that honky tonk dream An atlas and a coffe cup Five pickers in an old Dodge truck Heading down to Houston for a show on Saturday night This overhead is killing me Half the time I sing for free But when the crowd's into it Lord it makes this thing I doing seem right Standing in the spotlight Chasin' the neon rainbow Livin' that honky tonk dream 'Cause all I've ever wanted Is too pick this guitar and sing Just trying to be somebody Just wanna be heard and seen Chasin' that neon rainbow Livin' that honky tonk dream Daddy's got a radio He won it thrity years ago He said 'Son I just now we're gonna hear you singing on it someday' I made it up to Music Row Lordy don't the wheels turn slow But I wouldn't trade a minute I wouldn't have it any other way Just show me to the stage I'm chasin' the neon rainbow Livin' that honky tonk dream 'Cause all I've ever wanted Is too pick this guitar and sing Just trying to be somebody Just wanna be heard and seen Chasin' that neon rainbow Livin' that honky tonk dream I'm chasin' the neon rainbow Livin' that honky tonk dream

We Were Young

Lucky 7
17 and we were Strung out on nothing yet Cuz we were young Sitting around and getting high In back of my 55 When we were young If I could only be with her right now She'd know exactly how I feel about the two of us Running around the streets And raising hell You know exactly who I am And for her I'd do it all again In her eyes I tried to be a star Like a dog in the street Chasing after every car Toe to toe until the final round You know exactally who I am And I'd do it all again All my life, when in your arms all of my life i'm waiting for you

Honky Tonk Women

JERRY LEE LEWIS "Last Man Standing"
I met a gin soaked, bar-room queen down in Memphis, She tried to take me upstairs for a ride. She had to heave me right across her shoulder 'Cause I just can't seem to drink you off my mind. It's just the honky tonk women Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues. It's just the honky tonk women Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues. I laid a divorce in Detroit City, I had to put up some kind of a fight. The lady then she covered me with roses, She blew my nose and then she blew my mind. It's just the honky tonk women Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues. It's the honky tonk women. Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues. It's the honky tonk women. Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues.
