JAMES WESLEY lyrics

The Fightin' Side Of Me

Original and similar lyrics
I hear people talkin' bad, About the way we have to live here in this country, Harpin' on the wars we fight, An' gripin' 'bout the way things oughta be. An' I don't mind 'em switchin' sides, An' standin' up for things they believe in. When they're runnin' down my country, man, They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me. Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me. Runnin' down the way of life, Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep. If you don't love it, leave it: Let this song that I'm singin' be a warnin'. If you're runnin' down my country, hoss, You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me. I read about some squirrely guy, Who claims, he just don't believe in fightin'. An' I wonder just how long, The rest of us can count on bein' free. They love our milk an' honey, But they preach about some other way of livin'. When they're runnin' down my country, man, They're walkin' on the fightin' side of me. Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me. Runnin' down the way of life, Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep. If you don't love it, leave it: Let this song that I'm singin' be a warnin'. If you're runnin' down my country, hoss, You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me. Yeah, walkin' on the fightin' side of me. Runnin' down the way of life, Our fightin' men have fought and died to keep. If you don't love it, leave it: Let this song that I'm singin' be a warnin'. If you're runnin' down my country, hoss, You're walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Walkin' On Water

Blackhawk "Sky's The Limit"
(Randy Albright/Ben Hayslip) Ain't it funny how a woman can change a man overnight From a natural born rebel to a born-again-kinda-guy All it took was one look in your eyes...now I'm a new man walkin', you can write it in stone You made me a believer once and for all Well I used to be honky tonk trouble I'm leavin' those days behind me on the double With an angel like you in my corner I'm tradin runnin' on whiskey for walkin' on water (Runnin' on whiskey, walkin' on water) I used to set 'em up, drink 'em down, make my rounds going strong Makin' noise with the boys, gettin' wild past the break of dawn Now those rip and roarin' days are gone I'm a new man walkin', you can write it in stone You made me a believer once and for all Well I used to be honky tonk trouble I'm leavin' those days behind me on the double With an angel like you in my corner I'm tradin runnin' on whiskey for walkin' on water All those party friends of mine Say I'm mighty hard to find these days Well that might be true, but it's all because of you I've learned to live it up a better way right beside you I'm a new man walkin', you can write it in stone You made me a believer once and for all Well I used to be honky tonk trouble I'm leavin' those days behind me on the double With an angel like you in my corner I'm tradin runnin' on whiskey for walkin' on water Tradin runnin' on whiskey for walkin' on water (Runnin' on whiskey, walkin' on water) Walkin' on water (Runnin' on whiskey, walkin' on water)

Fightin' Words

TRACE ADKINS "Dangerous Man"
Alright Everyone knows I'm the hard workin' peace lovin' type I walk a thousand miles out of my way Just to keep from a fight Poke fun at the way that I talk Or this hat that I wear You can say what you want about me See if I care But one slip of the tongue 'bout my God Or my mama Or this flag that I wear on my shirt You'll see a side of me man That I don't think you wanna Cause them there's fightin' words Now don't get me wrong I've swapped skin now and then in my youth I was all for an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth Now the older I get The less I wanna stand toe to toe But before you go runnin' your mouth I think you oughta know That one slip of the tongue 'bout my God Or my mama Or this flag that I wear on my shirt You'll see a side of me man That I don't think you wanna Cause them there's fightin' words Chevrolet or Ford The south or the north That ain't gonna get me worked up But I'll draw the line Everytime when it comes to the things that I love So one slip of the tongue 'bout my dog Or my woman Or this country that I proudly serve You'll see a side of me man That you damn sure don't wanna Cause them there's fightin' words Yeah, them's fightin' words Ahh them's fightin' words, Hoss [spoken] Excuse me First amendment? Son, the first amendment protects you from the government Not from me You can say whatever you want to out there You come within reach of me I'll exercise my right to give you a good ol' country ass whoopin' Is what I'll do for you By God

With God On Our Side

JOAN BAEZ "Joan Baez In Concert, Part 2"
Oh my name it is nothin' My age it means less The country I come from Is called the Midwest I's taught and brought up there The laws to abide And that land that I live in Has God on its side. Oh the history books tell it They tell it so well The cavalries charged The Indians fell The cavalries charged The Indians died Oh the country was young With God on its side. Oh the Spanish-American War had its day And the Civil War too Was soon laid away And the names of the heroes I's made to memorize With guns in their hands And God on their side. Oh the First World War, boys It closed out its fate The reason for fighting I never got straight But I learned to accept it Accept it with pride For you don't count the dead When God's on your side. When the Second World War Came to an end We forgave the Germans And we were friends Though they murdered six million In the ovens they fried The Germans now too Have God on their side. I've learned to hate Russians All through my whole life If another war starts It's them we must fight To hate them and fear them To run and to hide And accept it all bravely With God on my side. But now we got weapons Of the chemical dust If fire them we're forced to Then fire them we must One push of the button And a shot the world wide And you never ask questions When God's on your side. In a many dark hour I've been thinkin' about this That Jesus Christ Was betrayed by a kiss But I can't think for you You'll have to decide Whether Judas Iscariot Had God on his side. So now as I'm leavin' I'm weary as Hell The confusion I'm feelin' Ain't no tongue can tell The words fill my head And fall to the floor If God's on our side He'll stop the next war.
