JAMEY JOHNSON lyrics - The Guitar Song

Playing The Part

Original and similar lyrics
Taking a dip on the sunset strip in the mornin' Ain't nothing like the smell of tofu and high dollar wine They said maybe all of them cars locking down the I-5 Yeah I find it amazing these rats I've been chasing are helping me remember a time When the only LA I knew was lower Alabama Back when me and Hannah were wishing on a southern star Now its so complicated, I really hate it, why'd I ever want to go so far Taking depression pills in the Hollywood Hills Acting like I'm playing the part All this gripping and grinning, losing and winning, and running Promises break like an egg on the hot asphalt What the hell was I thinking, drinking like I'd never get caught These high dollar women, and the fame and the fortune, ain't worth the ticket I bought When the only LA I knew was lower Alabama Back when me and Hannah were wishing on a southern star Now its so complicated, I really hate it, why'd I ever want to go so far Taking depression pills in the Hollywood Hills Acting like I'm playing the part Taking depression pills in the Hollywood Hills Acting like I'm playing the part

Slow Down

THE ACADEMY IS... "Almost Here"
Close the door and take the stairs. Up or down? Ups and downs. Don't pretend you've never been there. You kiss me like an overdramatic actor who's starving for work, with one last shot to make it happen. You've won the role, you've played your part, you've been cordially invited. But I'm not impressed, and I'm definitely not excited. 'Cause the film runs a shallow budget, and the writer's subject script isn't any deeper. So dive right in... Hollywood hills and suburban thrills, hey you, who are you kidding? I'm not like them. I won't buy in. Hollywood hills and suburban thrills, hey you, who are you kidding? Don't quit 'til 47. Then we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster. [Chorus:] Take back everything you ever said. You never meant a word of it. You never did. Take back everything you said. You never meant a word of it. You never did. She said 'Alright, Alright, slow down!" Oh no, oh no, we won't. 'Cause I regret every thing that I said To ever make her feel like she was something special, Or that she ever really mattered. Or did she ever really matter? Hollywood hills and suburban thrills, hey you, who are you kidding? I'm not like them. I won't buy in. Hollywood hills and suburban thrills, just don't count on this summer. Don't quit 'til 47. Then we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster. [Chorus] I'm not saying that I'm not breaking some hearts tonight, girl. Oh... I'm not saying that I'm not breaking some hearts tonight, girl. Alright, alright, slow down... [Chorus] Hollywood hills and suburban thrills, hey you, who are you kidding? I'm not like them. I won't buy in. [x3 to fade]

Hollywood Nights

BOB SEGER "Stranger In Town"
Words and Music by Bob Seger She stood there bright as the sun on that California coast He was a midwestern boy on his own She looked at him with those soft eyes, so innocent and blue He knew right then he was too far from home He was too far from home She took his hand and she led him along that golden beach They watched the waves tumble over the sand They drove for miles and miles up those twisting turning roads Higher and higher and higher they climbed And those Hollywood nights In those Hollywood hills She was looking so right In her diamonds and frills All those big city nights In those high rolling hills Above all the lights She had all of the skills He'd headed west 'cause he felt that a change would do him good See some old friends, good for the soul She had been born with a face that would ***let*** her get her way He saw that face and he lost all control He had lost all control Night after night, day after day, it went on and on Then came that morning he woke up alone He spent all night staring down at the lights of LA Wondering if he could ever go home And those Hollywood nights In those Hollywood hills It was looking so right It was giving him chills In those big city nights In those high rolling hills Above all the lights With a passion that kills In those Hollywood nights In those Hollywood hills She was looking so right In her diamonds and frills All those big city nights In those high rolling hills Above all the lights She had all of the skills

Flower Grown Wild

BRYAN ADAMS "11"
She was the girl in the very front row Always waitin' after the show She was the queen of the hollywood hills Knew the stars, the bars, the pimps and pills Somebody's climbin' on a greyhound tonight Too much lipstick and her dress real tight Looks like a woman but she ain't quite No, not quite She's somebody's baby She's somebody's mother's child She may look like a lady But she's just a flower grown wild They never knew you by your childhood name But they were drawn to you like moths to a flame Nobody saw the tears in your silk n' lace Or the scarred little kid behind your face Just remember when you hold her tight What you're holding in your arms tonight She's no angel, but that's alright Ya that's alright She's somebody's baby She's somebody's mother's child She may look like a lady But she's just a flower grown wild Just another little pretty thing Another angel with a broken wing Who fell to earth 'neath the hollywood hills Amid the stars and the bars, the pimps and pills Just like the girl on the movie screen She played it up until the very last scene The picture faded and the day was done Went home to nothin but a loaded gun Somebody's climbing on a greyhound tonight A little angel flyin' out of sight Looks like a woman but she ain't quite No, not quite

Hoo, Lord !
