On The Road

Original and similar lyrics
(Franzen) Back in 1958, we drove an old V-8. And when it gone a hundred 'thou, we got out and pushed it a mile. We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did, we were just on the road. Heading down from Canada on a gravel road a mile from Montana, then my Daddy read a sign and took us in the wrong direction. I asked my Daddy, where are we going? He said we'll just follow our nose. So I looked out the window and dreamed I was a cowboy. We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did, we were just on the road. Met a girl in a truck cafe, fell in love almost right away, then the Mercury was ready to go, and I had to leave her. Shooby dooby doo sha doo, shooby dooby doo sha doo, shoo doo. Go home, said the man in the moon, go home. Go home, said the man in the moon, go home. Because it's getting sort of late, and I'll soon turn out my light. Go home, said the man in the moon, go home. We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did, we were just on the road. We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did, we were just on the road.

8 Mile

EMINEM "Slim Shady LP"
[Eminem] Sometimes I just feel like, quittin I still might Why do I put up this fight, why do I still write Sometimes it's hard enough just dealin with real life Sometimes I wanna jump on stage and just kill mics And show these people what my level of skill's like But I'm still white, sometimes I just hate life Somethin ain't right, hit the brake lights Case of the stage fright, drawin a blank like Da-duh-duh-da-da, it ain't my fault Great then I falls, my insides crawl and I clam up (wham) I just slam shut I just can't do it, my whole manhood's just been stripped, I have just been vicked So I must then get, off the bus then slip Man fuck this shit yo, I'm goin the fuck home World on my shoulders as I run back to this 8 Mile Road [Chorus] I'm a man, I'ma make a new plan Time for me to just stand up, and travel new land Time to really just take matters into my own hands Once I'm over these tracks man I'ma never look back (8 Mile Road) And I'm gone, I know right where I'm goin Sorry momma I'm grown, I must travel alone And go follow the footsteps I'm makin my own Only way that I know how to escape from this 8 Mile Road [Eminem] I'm walkin these train tracks, tryin to regain back the spirit I had 'fore I go back to the same crap To the same plant, and the same pants Tryin to chase rap, gotta move ASAP And get a new plan, momma's got a new man Poor little baby sister, she don't understand Sits in front of the TV, buries her nose in the pad And just colors until the crayon gets dull in her hand While she colors her big brother and mother and dad Ain't no tellin what really goes on in her little head Wish I could be the daddy that neither one of us had But I keep runnin from somethin I never wanted so bad! Sometimes I get upset, cause I ain't blew up yet It's like I grew up, but I ain't grow me two nuts yet Don't gotta rep my step, don't got enough pep The pressure's too much man, I'm just tryin to do what's best And I try, sit alone and I cry Yo I won't tell no lie, not a moment goes by That I don't pray to the sky, please I'm beggin you God Please don't let me be bitchin holdin no regular job Yo I hope you can hear me homey wherever you are Yo I'm tellin you dawg I'm bailin this trailer tomorrow Tell my mother I love her, kiss baby sister goodbye Say whenever you need me baby, I'm never too far But yo I gotta get out there, the only way I know And I'ma be back for you, the second that I blow On everything I own, I'll make it on my own Off to work I go, back to this 8 Mile Road [Chorus] [Eminem] You gotta live it to feel it, you didn't you wouldn't get it Or see what the big deal is, why it wasn't the skillest To be walkin this borderline of Detroit city limits It's different, it's a certain significance, a certificate of authenticity, you'd never even see But it's everything to me, it's my credibility You never seen heard smelled or met a real MC who's incredible upon the same pedestal as me But yet I'm still unsigned, havin a rough time Sit on the porch with all my friends and kick dumb rhymes Go to work and serve MC's in the lunchline But when it comes crunch time, where do my punchlines go Who must I show, to bust my flow Where must I go, who must I know Or am I just another crab in the bucket Cause I ain't havin no luck with this little Rabbit so fuck it Maybe I need a new outlet, I'm startin to doubt shit I'm feelin a little skeptical who I hang out with I look like a bum, yo my clothes ain't about shit if the Salvation Army tryin to salvage an outfit And it's cold, tryin to travel this road Plus I feel like I'm on stuck in this battlin mode My defenses are so up, but one thing I don't want is pity from no one, the city is no fun There is no sun, and it's so dark Sometimes I feel like I'm just bein pulled apart I'm torn in my limbs, by each one of my friends It's enough to make me just wanna jump out of my skin Sometimes I feel like a robot, sometimes I just know not what I'm doin I just blow, my head is a stove top I just explode, the kettle gets so hot Sometimes my mouth just overloads the ass that I don't got But I've learned, it's time for me to U-turn Yo it only takes one time for me to get burned Ain't no fallin no next time I meet a new girl I can no longer play stupid or be immature I got every ingredient, all I need is the courage Like I already got the beat, all I need is the words Got the urge, suddenly it's a surge Suddenly a new burst of energy is occured Time to show these free world leaders the three and a third I am no longer scared now, I'm free as a bird Then I turn and cross over the median curb Hit the verbs and all you see is a blur from 8 Mile Road [Chorus]

She Loved Me

JASON ALDEAN "Jason Aldean"
It was the summer of '89 I fell in love and i learned to drive Me and Becky didn't waste no time Went zero to 65 one night Being young was getting old We were headed down a dead end road But we didn't care, we were on a roll Hangin' on for the ride Those lines that we were crossing Carelessly tossin' caution to the wind We were wearin' thin [chorus] We were livin' for the minute lovin' every second of it Fearless wild and free Nothin' could stop us But one day time caught up with us And woke us up in the middle of our dream But not before she loved me To think we thought that it would last Now lookin' back i have to laugh What a mess we made of that Now I'm not sure that i would want it back We learned a little bit about love What it wasn't and what it was It was fast and it was fun The beginning of the end of us But one day that road just ran out Yeah, i still travel down it now and then, and once again [chorus] She loved me She loved me

The Road

JACKSON BROWNE "Running On Empty"
(Danny O'Keefe) Highways and dancehalls A good song takes you far Your write about the moon And you dream about the stars Blues in old motel rooms Girls in daddy's car You sing about the nights And you laugh about the scars Coffee in the morning cocaine afternoons You talk about the weather And you grin about the rooms Phone calls long distance To tell how you've been Forget about the losses, you exaggerate the wins And when you stop to let 'em know You've got it down It's just another town along the road The ladies come to see you If your name still rings a bell They give you damn near nothin' And they'll say they knew you well So you tell 'em you'll remember But they know it's just a game And along the way their faces All begin to look the same And when you stop to let 'em know You got it down It's just another town along the road Well it isn't for the money And it's only for a while You stalk about the rooms And you roll away the miles Gamblers in the neon, clinging to guitars You're right about the moon But you're wrong about the stars And when you stop to let 'em know You got it down It's just another town along the way
