  • 1. Johnny Cash

    (Watch ya got)

    Quit my job flipped off the boss took my name of the payroll.
    (screw you man)
    Picked up my cell rang my baby's bell said I'm three miles from home.
    I said sugar why don't you put on that sundress I like so much,
    Wait out by the road I'm comin' to pick you up.

    (whoa)
    Throw your suitcase in the back,
    (whoa)
    Done gassed up the pontiac,
    (whoa)
    Blastin' out to Johnny Cash, headin' for the highway,
    Baby we ain't ever comin' back.

    It's four hundred and sixty seven miles to the outskirts of Las Vegas.
    What do you say we go get married by a preacher man that looks like Elvis.
    (yeah momma)
    Sugar don't you worry bout tellin' your momma goodbye,
    We'll send her a souvenier postcard from the wild side.

    (whoa)
    Throw your suitcase in the back,
    (whoa)
    Done gassed up the pontiac,
    (whoa)
    Blastin' out to Johnny Cash, headin' for the highway,
    Baby we ain't ever comin' back.

    (whoa)
    Throw your suitcase in the back,
    (whoa)
    Done gassed up the pontiac,
    (whoa)
    Blastin' out to Johnny Cash, headin' for the highway,
    Baby we ain't ever comin' back.

    (fuey!)

    (whoa)
    (whoa)
    (whoa)
    Hear that train a comin', rollin' round the bend.
    (whoa)
    the man in black is gonna rock your ass again.
    (whoa)
    (whoa)
    (whoa)

  • 2. Laughed Until We Cried

    Goin’ through my closet the other day
    I found an old yearbook
    Flipped right to the page of that senior trip
    Down there on that Panama strip
    We all started yellin’ when we smelled the beach
    Couldn't wait to try our fake I.D.’s
    We only had a few days
    And a whole lot of memories to make

    Oh man we were livin’
    Didn't waste one minute
    We talked and drank and danced and said goodbye
    We laughed until we cried

    This past year my family
    Was sittin’ cross-legged 'round the Christmas tree
    Listenin’ to granddad
    We all knew it probably be his last
    He was crackin’ jokes and we were takin’ turns
    Tellin’ stories ‘bout fishin’ or lessons learned
    Out on the porch with him
    We all felt like kids again

    Oh man we were livin
    Sittin' there reminiscin'
    We sang and talked and traveled back in time
    We laughed until we cried

    It's like the best days under the sun
    Every emotion rolled into one
    A little of this a little of that
    Kinda happy kinda sad

    Just the other night the baby was cryin’
    So I got out of bed rocked her awhile
    And I held her tight
    And I told her it would be all right
    And my mind went back to a few years ago
    When we tried so long
    We almost gave up hope
    And I remember you
    Comin' in and tellin’ me the news

    Oh man we were livin’
    Goin’ crazy in the kitchen
    We danced and screamed and held each other tight
    We laughed until we cried

  • 3. Do You Wish It Was Me

    When the sun slowly chases the moon from the sky
    And touches your face as you open your eyes
    What are you thinking? Do you like what you see?
    Is it all that you dreamed of or do you wish it was me?

    Is the life that you've chosen free from regret?
    Or is what might have been just too hard to forget?
    Has the glitter all faded? Do you get what you need?
    Are you satisfied baby or do you wish it was me?

    I know that you did what you thought you should do
    It was safe and secure so completely thought through
    You sacrificed passion and abandoned your dreams
    Baby, was it all worth it or do you wish it was me?

    Does each kiss seem closer to the first or the last?
    Is the fire still ragin' or has it burned down to ash?
    Do the memories haunt you? Do they beg and they plead?
    Are you satisfied baby or do you wish it was me?

    Is the life that you've chosen free from regret?
    Or is what might have been just too hard to forget?
    Has the glitter all faded? Do you get what you need?
    Are you satisfied baby or do you wish it was me?
    Are you satisfied baby? mmm...yeah
    Or
    Do you wish it was me? (2x)
    Oh,
    Do you wish it was me?(4x)

  • 4. I Use What I Got

    Nobody ever thought I'd make it in this town
    They all said i should leave my truck, pack, and turn right back around
    They said I didn't have what it takes
    I needed money and a pretty face
    But I just look at them and say...

    I use what I got
    Take what I get
    Give Until I ain't got nothin' left
    Then I give it some more
    Keep on climbing up that mountain
    Keep truckin' along, work up a sweat
    Pass every no, after no, after no, till I get a yes
    I don't worry about what I'm not
    I use what I got, yeah

    I still got big dreams and a strong heart
    I got a lot of real good friends who helped me get this far
    I still got a lot of miles to go
    It's a winding, uphill road
    But I'll get there the only way I know

    I use what i got
    Take what I get
    Give Until I ain't got nothin left
    Then I give it some more
    Keep on climbin' up that mountain
    Keep truckin' along, work up a sweat
    Pass every no, after no, after no, till I get a yes
    I don't worry about what I'm not
    I use what I got, yeah

    Keep on rollin' along, doin' my best
    Pass every no after no after no til I get a yes
    I don't worry about what I'm not
    No, no, I don't worry about what I'm not
    I use what i got, yeah

  • 5. Who's Kissing You Tonight

    I don't think of you
    Every day and night
    I got things to do
    Yeah, I'm doing alright
    So, I can't explain
    Why in times like these
    I nearly go insane
    When you're not here with me

    (Chorus)
    Oh, I know its really over
    And you're never coming back
    And there's no way that I can make it right
    Still I wonder, Oh I wonder
    Oh baby, I can't help but wonder
    Who's kissing you tonight

    Oh, and it's the jealousy
    That's hurting me
    So, why can't I let it be
    Why can't I just let go
    Oh, but the thought of you
    Somewhere with someone else
    Doing what we used to do
    Feeling what we felt

    (Chorus)
    Oh, I know its really over
    And you're never coming back
    And there's no way that I can make it right
    Still I wonder, Oh I wonder,
    Oh baby, I can't help but wonder
    Who's kissing you tonight

    Oh I know its really over
    And you're never coming back
    And there's no way that I can make it right
    Still I wonder, Oh I wonder
    Oh baby, I can't help but wonder
    Who's kissing you
    Who's kissing you tonight
    Who's holding you tight
    Aw, who's kissing you tonight

  • 6. Relentless

    I toss and turn, I'm losing sleep
    Can't seem to make any sense of anything
    I keep wandering around in circles, in a daze
    Just when I start awakeneing
    I find that something's intoxicating me
    Til' I'm tangled up, lost inside a maze

    I can't outrun it
    Just keeps comin'
    Girl, your love is relentless

    Just like the waves against the sand
    Over and over and time and time again
    Your love keeps on reaching out to me

    I can't outrun it
    Just keeps comin'
    Girl your love is, relentless
    I can't fight it
    There's no hiding
    Girl your love is, relentless

    I'm staring at a hurricane
    A hundred miles of driving rain
    I just smile and lean into the wind
    Cause' I can't outrun it

    I can't outrun it
    Just keeps comin'
    Girl, your love is relentless
    I can't fight it
    There's no hiding
    Girl, your love is relentless

    I toss and turn, I'm losing sleep
    Can't seem to make any sense of anything
    I keep wandering round in circles, in a daze
    Just when I start awakening
    I find that something's intoxicating me
    Till I'm tangled up, lost inside a maze

  • 7. My Memory Ain't What It Used To Be

    It must have been a mountain standing in our way
    Or some small misunderstanding
    We talked about too late
    Was it the kitchen or the bedroom
    Where we let a good thing go
    Was it destined dreams, or space we needed?
    Oh, I don't know.

    Baby, lately my memory
    Ain't what it used to be, at all
    It's crazy, but holding you close to me
    Seeing you smile at me
    Is all that I recall
    Cause' baby it don't matter how hard I try
    I still can't remember why we said goodbye

    Maybe time's just playin' tricks on me these days
    Or maybe these old feelings never went away
    Cause' all that I remember
    Is I'm still in love with you
    And if I'm losing my mind, I hope you are too

    Baby, lately my memory
    Ain't what it used to be at all
    It's crazy, but holding you close to me
    Seeing you smile at me
    Is all that I recall
    Cause baby it don't matter how hard I try
    I still can't remember why we said goodbye

    Goodbyeee

    It's crazy
    But holding you close to me
    Seeing you smile at me
    Is all that I recall
    Cause' baby, it don't matter how hard I try
    I still can't remember why we said goodbye
    Why we said goodbye
    Why did we say goodbye?

  • 8. No

    Looking back
    At the dead ends and the detours
    All I can do is long for a straighter line
    Yeah, I was lost
    I had no way of knowin'
    Where the twists and turns were goin'
    But sometimes, just gotta let the road wind

    Could it have been easier?
    Yeah
    A little smoother ride
    Maybe so
    But lying here with you
    Would I change one thing 'bout that road?
    No

    I believe
    Things happen for a reason
    Even though you might not see it
    At the time
    Cause' now I know
    Every plan that came unraveled
    Every crooked path I traveled in my life
    Led me here to your side

    Could it have been easier?
    Yeah
    A little smoother ride
    Maybe so
    But lying here with you
    Would I change one thing 'bout that road?
    No

    Yeah, I finally found you...

    Could it have been easier?
    Yeah
    A little smoother, ride
    Maybe so
    But lying here with you
    Would I change one thing 'bout that road?
    It could have been easier
    Yeah
    A little smoother ride
    Maybe so
    But lying here with you
    Would I change one thing 'bout that road?
    No

  • 9. Back In This Cigarette

    It's two A.M. in my new home, this motel room
    An ash tray full of lucky strikes
    A half spent case of warm Bud Lite
    Countin' regrets, fightin' back tears
    Retracin' steps, gettin' no where

    [Chorus]
    Callin your name, it's a waste of my breath
    There's no reachin' you across this cold and empty bed
    Stirrin' up ashes, tryin' to find passion
    Where there's no love left
    It's like tryin to put smoke back in this cigarette

    Come sunrise, guess I'll checkout and ditch this town
    Put a few more miles between us
    And keep driving till I finally mend my broken trust
    Hangin' my hopes on highway signs
    If I lie here, I'll loose my mind

    [Chorus]
    Callin your name, it's a waste of my breath
    There's no reachin' you across this cold and empty bed
    Stirrin' up ashes, tryin' to find passion
    Where there's no love left
    It's like tryin' to put smoke back in this cigarette

    I may never know your reasons why
    But someday I'm gonna see the good in your goodbye

    Callin your name, it's a waste of my breath
    There's no reachin' you across this empty bed
    Stirrin' up ashes, tryin' to find passion
    Where there's no love left
    It's like tryin to put smoke back in this cigarette

  • 10. Grown Woman

    Pain it's only a little pain
    It'll be gone in a couple of days
    Or maybe a life or two
    Heart it's only my poor heart
    Just that little thing you tore apart
    It ain't no headline news

    Chorus

    But a grown woman should've known better
    Than to treat me like some old lipstick
    You use up and throw away
    Hey, hey, hey

    Time I wish I could turn back time
    To when you were just a child
    And teach you a thing or two
    About love it's okay if you wanna give up
    But there's a way to leave someone
    And you don't have to be so cruel

    Chorus

    Cause' a grown woman shoulda' known better
    Than to treat me like some old dish rag
    You use up and throw away
    Hey, hey, hey

    You're supposed to treat your lover
    At least as good as your neighbor
    So how could you, a grown woman
    Not know no better

    I ain't no old lipstick you use up and throw away
    Cause' you're ready for another shade
    Hey, hey, hey

    You should've known better
    Cause' you're a grown woman

  • 11. I Break Everything I Touch

    If it's gonna happen, then it's gonna happen
    That's just the way that it is
    Oh love comes along and it dont take long
    Till' it slips through my fingertips
    I could make some excuses, but darlin' the truth is
    I'm just the reckless kind
    And I dont wanna leave you to pick up the pieces
    Oh no matter how I try

    Girl, I break everything I touch
    Little girl that's close enough
    Seems like every heart I've ever loved
    I break everything I touch

    I can't look in your eyes and tell you a lie
    I'd love to leave here with you
    Oh but darlin' the fact is
    I'm always atracted to everything I shouldn't do
    Oh so you better know, before I lose control
    And we throw it all to chance
    Girl your welcome to stay, but all I've got to say
    Before you lay your heart in my hands

    Yeah I break everything I touch
    Little girl thats close enough
    Seems like every heart I've ever loved
    I break everything I touch

    Well I break everything I touch
    Little girl thats close enough
    Seems like every heart I've ever loved
    I break everything I touch

    Yeah I break everything I touch
    Little girl thats close enough
    Seems like every heart I've ever loved
    I break everything I touch

  • 12. Not Every Man Lives

    Have you ever skipped a stone across the water?
    Have you ever hitched a free ride on a train?
    Have you ever climbed up on a water tower,
    To write a name?

    The truth is every man dies,
    Not every man lives.

    Have you ever loved someone that you would die for?
    Have you ever walked too far out on a limb?
    Have you ever chased a dream too high to reach for,
    And pulled it in?

    The truth is every man dies,
    But not every man lives.

    I wanna paint outside the lines,
    Run the red lights in my mind,
    Take everything one lifetime has to give.
    I wanna stand inside the fire,
    Walk blind-folded on a wire.
    Every man dies,
    But not every man lives.

    Have you ever thought about how fast time passes?
    Ever thought about what you would leave behind?
    Ever stood up for something you believed in,
    And drawn a line?

    The truth is every man dies,
    But not every man lives.

    I wanna paint outside the lines,
    Run the red lights in my mind,
    Take everything one lifetime has to give.
    I wanna stand inside a fire,
    Walk blind-folded on a wire.

    Every man dies,
    But not every man lives.

    I wanna stand inside a fire,
    Walk blind-folded on a wire.

    Every man dies,
    But not every man lives.

    Have you ever skipped a stone across the water?
    Have you ever hitched a free ride on a train?
