SHOOTER JENNINGS lyrics - The Wolf

This Ol' Wheel

Original and similar lyrics
This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road Oh gravel and dust fly up off of truck tires down a dirt road In Nashville, In the summertime, In 1996 I was listenin' to my dad and Johnny Cash Doin' chain gang and talkin' trash with Savannah and smokin' cigarettes But it wasn't that long till I tasted the salt of the sea Cause she was still in love with the guy she left for me so She stood there cryin' as I packed my pack And I knew that I was lyin' when I said that I'd be back This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road Now fast forward to about 2000 and 3 I'm standin' on the corner of Hollywood and Vine Just a six string and me And that capitol building Lookin' up at that thing Wonderin' when am I gonna get my chance to sing But faced with that kind of predicament it'd be pretty hard to to get choked up When every hero I've had and every band I had broke up I'm invited to a party and I just can't come cause I know that once I'm in I can't pull out till I'm done This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road In my last nine to ten old Ah Pook waltzed in Put his slimy gun to my head and said son this is the end I said you better get back I got an army of good friends Who would follow me to hell and I've done the same for them Besides you're not going to destroy what we've worked so hard to defend We protect the things we love just like our families did We picked a long and winding road and we'd do it again We picked a dark horse and we're gonna ride it till the end This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road This 'ol wheel keeps on rollin' down the road

Ol' Man River

FRANK SINATRA "Night and Day"
Writer(s): Hammerstein/Kern Here we all work 'long the Mississippi Here we all work while the white folk play Pullin' them boats from the dawn till sunset Gettin' no rest till the judgment day Don't look up and don't look down You don't das make the boss man frown Bend your knees and bow your head And pull that rope until your dead Let me go 'way from the Mississippi Let me go 'way from the white man boss Show me that stream called the River Jordan That's the old stream that I long to cross. Ol' Man River, that Ol' Man River He don't say nothin', but he must know somethin' He just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' along He don't plant tatters, and he don't plant cotton And them what plants em, are soon forgotten But Ol' Man River, just keeps rollin' along You and me, we sweat and strain Body all achin' and racked with pain Tote that barge and lift that bail You get a little drunk and you lands in jail I gets weary, and sick of trying I'm tired of livin', but I'm scared of dyin' But Ol' Man River, he just keeps rolin' along

Freedom Song

GREAT WHITE "Can't Get There From Here"
(Mark Kendall, Jack Russell, Michael Lardie) Here am I, talkin' at the sky Thinkin' 'bout it all I sometimes wonder at the way my life has gone Hey boy you stop that runnin' I heard it from a friend just today But as he spoke my heart was miles away So get that old train rollin' Come on Mista' engineer Need a freedom song to call my own Take me on away from here Met a girl in California, she asked me if I would stay And if I could for anyone, oh you know it babe But soon I got that same ol' feelin' And I tried to make some sense of it all Well baby I've been movin' far too long So get that old train rollin' Honey wipe away your tears Need a freedom song to call my own Take me on away from here Hearin' that whistle blowin' Reminds me of the good ol' days Back on the road where I belong again Somethin' to live for, the freedom I need Gotta keep the dream alive now Gotta keep a piece of me So get that old train rollin' Head it on away from here Back on the road where I belong Honey wipe away your tears Hearin' that ol' whistle blowin' Reminds me of a brand new day A freedom song for everyone Back on the road to stay

Ol' Man River

CHER "The Sonny Side Of Chér"
[Elongated Intro] Here we all work 'long the Mississippi Here we all work while the white folk play Pullin' them boats from the dawn till sunset Gettin' no rest till the judgment day Don't look up and don't look down Ya don't dast make the white boss frown Bend your knees and bow your head And pull that rope until you're dead Let me go 'way from the Mississippi Let me go 'way from the white man boss Show me that stream called the River Jordan That's the old stream that I long to cross [End Of Intro] Ol' Man River, that Ol' Man River He must know somepin', but he don't say nothin' He just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' along He don't plant taters, and he don't plant cotton And them what plants 'em is soon forgotten But Ol' Man River, jest keeps rollin' along You and me, we sweat and strain Bodies all achin' and wracked with pain Tote that barge and lift that bale Ya get a little drunk and ya lands in ja-ail I gets weary and so sick of tryin' I'm tired of livin', but I'm feared of dyin' And Ol' Man River, he just keeps rollin' along

Can't Let Go Of You

ARCADE FIRE
Where we gonna go I'm gassed up, I'm ready to go Grab your jacket, Let's hit the road We can't wait any longer, Let's go She's looking out the window And her baby starting to show From five months ago So keep driving, keep driving through the snow I passed by my folks on side of the road, but I'm through it everyone We can't let go, You can't let go of the wheel And I pass by my friends on either end, But I'm through it all of them I can't let go, We can't let go of the wheel Hoping land for miles is Nebraska in my eye And we still crystallize Any longer any longer Trees and power lines are all dressed in the ice And we still crystallize Keep moving keep moving through the eye See the road swallow us whole, and we're still alive... But I cant let go, I cant let go of the wheel And water break on a burning wick and douse the flame kill her quiver We cant let go, We cant let go of eachother Shes crying saying it's nobody's fault, shes already a pillar of salt We're too dissolved, we're too dissolved into the road

Proud Mary

ELVIS PRESLEY "Afternoon In The Garden"
(words music by John Fogerty) Left a good job in the city Workin' for the man every night and day Haven't ever lost one minute of sleeping Worried about the way things might have been Been a lot of places down in Memphis I umped a lot of babes down in New Orleans Had a lot of shots at good times in the city Till I hitched a ride on a river bout queen A big wheel keeps on turnin' Proud Mary keeps on burnin', rollin', rollin' Rollin' on a river Rollin, rollin, rollin on a river If you come down to the river I betcha you're gonna find some people who live You don't have to worry 'Cause you have no money People along the river are happy to give I said a big wheel keeps on turnin' Proud Mary keeps on burnin', rollin', rollin' Rollin' on a river Rollin', rollin', rollin' on a river
