JAMEY JOHNSON lyrics - The Dollar

Back To Caroline

Original and similar lyrics
He said: "The storm is gettin' stronger," As he climbed inside my truck. "I'm headed back to Carolina, God's will an' any luck." An' he told me how he'd left his family, So many years ago. An' he'd seen the whole world on the shoulders, But now it's time to go back home. An' he said: "This road goes on forever, I've been travellin' all my life. An' I've seen the rain, I've felt the thunder, But it never changed my mind: I'm goin' back to Caroline." I dropped him off at the State line, An' then I thought about my life. An' everything I left behind me: Two children an' my wife. I left 'em waitin' for a phone call, An' that was twenty days ago. But now I'm in it for the long-haul, An' it's time to go back home. An' this damn road keeps gettin' longer: I've been travellin' it some time. An' I've seen the rain, I've felt the thunder roll on, But it never changed my mind: I'm goin' back to Caroline." Yeah, yeah, yeah. Whoa, Lord, I'm going back to Caroline. Whoa oh.

Last Goodbye

JONNY LANG "Turn Around"
I had to call back you just one more time And try to trace the steps I left, left behind A fool's desire for just one final glance A fantasy the blind and lead to the trap Suddenly something deep inside me Allows to stay behind The only way I can keep from being torn apart Is if I can get you out of heart and out of mind Such a lonely place to be, yeah, yeah Locked inside of all my memories Which once upon a time I held so dear, so dear But now I see the truth becoming clear The boy that used to live here has gone away And now this man is standing in his place I think it's time for me to face this last goodbye You're out of heart and out of mind I know it won't be easy, just one step at a time And we've Gods help I can move on with life

Road To Ruin

MR. BIG
Good lord, I tried To push her memory to the back o' my mind 'Mustang Sally' from her head to her toe My life was in shambles When she shot down that road That was then, this is now If I learned my lesson, I forgot it somehow Headlights in the driveway, A knock at the door I hear that voice, and I know what's in store... Whoa oh whoa oh I looked in those angel eyes Whoa oh whoa oh The devil was in disguise, yeah She took me Down the road to ruin (Yeah baby) My head was spinnin' round Don't know what I'm doin' Back on the road to ruin... (Listen) Hip Hips Sexy legs - Ain't no surprise I got on my knees and begged Forked tongue, and pointed tail If we make it this time, it's a cold day in hell Whoa oh whoa oh She said she's be sweet this time yeah Whoa oh whoa oh One kiss and it all seemed so right She took me, Down the road to ruin (Yeah baby) My head was spinnin' round Don't know what I'm doin' Back on the road to ruin... Guitar Solo - Whoa oh whoa oh She said she's be sweet this time Whoa oh whoa oh The devil was in disguise

Beyond The Realms Of Death

JUDAS PRIEST "Stained Class"
(Binks/Halford) He had enough He couldn't take anymore He'd found a place In his mind and slammed the door No matter how they tried They couldn't understand They washed and dressed him Fed him by hand Yeah! I've left the world behind I'm safe here in my mind Free to speak with my own kind This is my life, this is my life I'll decide not you Withdrawn he'd sit there Stare blank into space No sign of life Would flicker on his face Until one day he smiled It seemed as though with pride The wind kissed him Goodbye - and then he died Yeah! I've left the world behind I'm safe here in my mind Free to speak with my own kind This is my life, this is my life I'll decide not you Keep the world with all its sin It's not fit for livin' in Yeah! I will start again It can take forever, and ever, and ever And ever, but I'll still win. [Solo (Glenn)] How many like him, Are there still But to us, all Seem to have lost the will They lie in thousands Plagued and lost Is nothing worth this bitter cost Yeah! I've left the world behind I'm safe here in my mind Free to speak with my own kind This is my life, this is my life I'll decide not you Keep the world with all its sin It's not fit for livin' in [Solo (K.K.)] Beoynd the realms of death.

Just Gettin' Started

JASON ALDEAN "Old Boots, New Dirt"
I knew the minute that I picked you up It was gonna be a wild ride You kissed me like you couldn't get enough Barely made it out of your drive Burn a little rubber at the red light Got a little warnin' from the blue lights It's only going on 9 o'clock but Feels more like midnight We ain't even turned up the radio Ain't been two miles down the road The way you look at me baby I don't know If we even gonna make it to the party Yeah we got a whole lotta moonlight left Already havin' the time of our lives And we just gettin' started tonight Girl you already got the window down And you got your seat laid back Ain't even make it halfway to town And you're already talkin' 'bout a six pack Already got your shoes off And you're talkin' 'bout slippin' off Nah we ain't even found your friends And you already wanna get lost We ain't even turned up the radio Ain't been two miles down the road The way you look at me baby I don't know If we even gonna make it to the party Yeah we got a whole lotta moonlight left Already havin' the time of our lives And we just gettin' started tonight Ain't had a drink and I'm tore up Ain't even had a taste of your love But girl the crazy thing is We just gettin' warmed up We ain't even turned up the radio Ain't been two miles down the road The way you look at me baby I don't know If we even gonna make it to the party Yeah we got a whole lotta moonlight left Already havin' the time of our lives And we just gettin' started tonight And we just gettin' started tonight
