JERRY REED lyrics - Better Things In Life

There's Better Things In Life

Original and similar lyrics
Last night I slept in a hobo camp down south of Cairo Georgia About five miles out of town by the railroad track Well I eat their stew I drunk their brew and I smoked their stale tobacco I stood up to their open fire and I warmed my back And in the meantime me and this one particular hobo we struck up a conversation And I'm sure he must have noticed my surprise When he told me how his old man died and left him sole heir to a million dollars And how he gave it all away and he chose a hobo's life Because he said son there's better things in life Well there's some things gold and silver just can't buy He said boy I'd rather sleep here on this dry creek bed With a wrinkled up overcoat to pillow my head Than fight that livin' high up on the hog Tryin' to keep ahead till my head's in a fog Son there's better things in life than growing ulcers over money There's better things in life Sing children hey da da da da da da da da... Well I left Georgia got me a job in Opelika Alabama Workin' for a man who drove me hard and he paid me cheap yes he did Well I watched this poor fool work so hard tryin' to make that almighty dollar That he had to live on pills from a drugstore down the street Now like last spring when income tax came due he just sat around for days and worried Losing good sleep tryin' to figure how to cheat the government yes he did He worked so hard that his nerves collapsed and he woke up inside Central State Hospital And on his taxes he got back fourteen dollars and some few cents So let me tell you friends there's better things in life Well there's some things gold and silver just can't buy Because now he's laying out flat on his back on the bed His nerves all shot and he's out of his head That hospital bill that'll make him holler When he sees what he spent tryin' to save himself a dollar Son there's better things in life than growing squirelly over money There's better things in life Sing children sing da da da da da da da da...

Better Living Through Chemistry

ADEMA "Planets"
One little request changes life for your best interest, no need for self-control while doctors line their pockets One for your pain and one for your mind rely and I'm not addicted it's fine One to lose weight and make you look right one day there'll be one for these lies Of course feeling numb here (of course feeling numb here) habit for me No matter what's wrong will set you free, better living through chemistry Prescriptions for it if you need relief. Better living through chemistry Every place I turn my eye, new drug marketing line The cure for everything is just around the corner, this dealer wears a nametag here to fill our order One for your pain and one for your mind rely and I'm not addicted it's fine One to lose weight and make you look right one day there'll be one for these lies Of course feeling numb here (of course feeling numb here) habit for me No matter what's wrong will set you free, better living through chemistry Prescriptions for it if you need relief. Better living through chemistry. Get your life under control. Get your life under control. Get your life under control. Patients are paychecks just looking for the kick back, Money's the motive and corruption is the tool of their trade Greed is taking over the hollow heart of healthcare, No longer taking chances, they've given up on us We are the only ones that can end epidemics like this (Stand up!)

Sometimes It Snows In April

Sasha
Tracy died soon after a long fought civil war, just after I'd wiped away his last tear I guess he's better off than he was before, A whole lot better off than the fools he left here I used 2 cry 4 Tracy because he was my only friend Those kind of cars don't pass u every day I used 2 cry 4 Tracy because I wanted to see him again, But sometimes sometimes life ain't always the way... Sometimes it snows in April Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad Sometimes I wish life was never ending, and all good things, they say, never last Springtime was always my favorite time of year, A time 4 lovers holding hands in the rain Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy's tears Always cry 4 love, never cry 4 pain He used 2 say so strong unafraid to die Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized No, staring at his picture I realized No one could cry the way my Tracy cried Sometimes it snows in April Sometimes I feel so bad Sometimes, sometimes I wish that life was never ending, And all good things, they say, never last I often dream of heaven and I know that Tracy's there I know that he has found another friend Maybe he's found the answer 2 all the April snow Maybe one day I'll see my Tracy again Sometimes it snows in April Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad Sometimes I wish that life was never ending, But all good things, they say, never last All good things that say, never last And love, it isn't love until it's past

Some Things I Know

James Bonamy "Roots And Wings"
(Burton Collins/Sally Barris) There's some things I know to be true Snow is white and the ocean is blue Rain is wet when it falls from the sky And the stars come out every night Just as I'm sure the sun will rise This love is real you see in my eyes Plant a seed and it will grow Some things I know There's some things in life I need Water to drink and air to breathe A place to rest when I need sleep When I'm hungry food to eat Sure as I need the Lord above That's how much I need your love Like I need shelter from the cold Some things I know More and more I realize How every day you bless my life There's some things in life I want A house with a porch and trees out front Someone to talk to; someone to hold And walk with as we grow old And I want all my dreams to come true And I want them all with you And I just had to tell you so Some things I know I just had to tell you so Some things I know

Child Of The Night

LUDACRIS "Red Light District"
[Chorus 2X: Nate Dogg] It's gonna get in ya, child of the night .. and the hood rolls on How do I begin to, do this shit right .. get my hustle on [Ludacris] Look here! Now I'm a man of many talents and a man of my word But on my path to see the light sometimes my vision gets blurred It's all a part of growin up and seein life at it's worst Then tryin to iron out my wrinkles, puttin family first It seems like the whole world is out for sinkin my boat But with God as my navigator I'll be stayin afloat And I admit to bein caught by many foolish distractions Then I'm forced to pay the price as the result of my actions I'm battlin with MYSELF and every DAY it's a war Curiosity killed the cat, why am I Curious George? Gotta keep my nose up outta thangs that ain't none of my biz And just cause somethin looks don't really mean that it is Get through the agony and anger, the pain and strife And take the necessary steps to try to change my life I got some questions for you Lord cause my mentality's hood So why is everything that's bad for me feel so good? [Chorus] [Ludacris] Now I'm a only child, so excuse some of my selfish ways I got spoiled when I was young, spoil myself today Oh but I feed at least a thousand stomachs and how I've done it is from the ground up a hundred miles and runnin Dodgin and duckin everybody tryin to hammer me down A self-made millionaire, baby look at me now Can't tell me nothin still hungry as the day I began Cause all I ever really needed was a pen in my hand And a, pad in my lap, didn't matter in fact Me and my momma lived in one room, and what's badder than that was a young man forced to grow up at the age of 12 Tryin to get in where I fit, streets givin me hell But yet I give it right - back, so how you like - that Continue doin wrong 'til I was on the right - track Tell me 'bout heavy money I might give it a PUSH But a, bird in the hand is worth two in the bush Come on [Chorus] [Ludacris] No matter how much older we get man, we all still children at heart We all make mistakes, it's all good Now I've tried plenty of times to get rid of my bad habits Livin life on the cuttin edge, takin a stab at it And learnin from my mistakes, try not to make 'em twice Just admittin when I'm wrong, tryin hard to make it right And baby, nobody's perfect in this world of ours There's plenty people gettin stitches in this world of scars But over time, pray to God that he can heal your wounds Try to love and love again until they seal your tomb Cause life is short if you don't know this it'll pass you by That's why my head is in the clouds tryin to pass the sky Never blinkin for a minute, keep my eyes on my foes They wanna catch me in the open, bring my life to a close Meanwhile that's why I'm bringin so much life to my shows I've seen smiles I'm makin changes turnin glitter to gold Don't let these devils play you down or belittle your soul Just be happy with yo'self and it's so simple to grow Come on [Chorus - to fade w/ ad libs]

The Man In Black

JOHNNY CASH "Man In Black"
Well, you wonder why I always dress in black Why you never see bright colors on my back And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town I wear it for the prisoner who is long paid for his crime But is there because he's a victim of the times I wear the black for those who've never read Or listened to the words that Jesus said About the road to happiness through love and charity Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose In our streak of lightnin' cars and fancy clothes But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back Up front there ought to be a Man In Black I wear it for the sick and lonely old For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been Each week we lose a hundred fine young men And I wear it for the thousands who have died Believin' that the Lord was on their side I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died Believin' that we all were on their side Well, there's things that never will be right I know And things need changin' everywhere you go But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right You'll never see me wear a suit of white Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day And tell the world that everything's okay But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black
