Well the deed is done He holds the smokin' gun And stands stands before the man on the judgement day After livin' life the outlaw way The preacher man's words that he heard are ringing' true in his head "You live the life, you'll live to have regret 'cause in the end you'll have to pay the debt" He's been runnin' with the devil in the dark of night Now the sun is comin' up and he can see the light But it's too late now because the deal's been done Long ago he gave his soul for the guns and gold Now there's nowhere he can turn that's gonna save his soul Cause there's a price to pay, a heavy price to pay Livin' the Outlaw Way For the sinnin' kind there will come a time The music ends, you do the final dance And then you turn and face the consequence The preacher man's words that he heard are ringin' true in his head The sinnin' kind will live to have regret 'cause in the end they'll have to pay the debt He's been runnin' with the devil in the dark of night Now the sun is comin' up and he can see the light But it's too late now Because the deal's been done Long ago he gave his soul for the guns and gold Now there's nowhere he can turn that's gonna save his soul Cause there's a price to pay, a heavy price to pay Livin' the Outlaw Way

Amigos 04:02
When you're out at the bar and you've had way too much Who's gonna come pick you up? Next time just call me and don't go to jail You still owe me last weekend's bail Wherever we go, no matter how far Nothing can change who we are Amigos, amigos When your piece of shit pickup breaks down once again I know you don't have AAA Who will reluctantly help out a friend? Who's only a phone call way? And when you've got a secret that you need to hide, who's gonna keep it inside Amigos, right from the start Amigos, we'll never part Amigos, is Spanish for friends Amigos, until the end And if some jerk, down at your work Is pissing you off to no end Don't kick his ass, you'll probably get canned I'll handle your light work my friend When you're crazy ass girlfriend kicks you out again You know who lives just 'round the bend By the way that relationship's one you should end I'm telling you this as a friend Cause I heard she's seeing like 10 other guys Amigos will tell you no lies

Victoria 02:33
Was from the start that I knew It was nothing like before There was something so much more There was nothing I could do To keep from coming back for more Once you opened up the door Like the stars out in the night When it was dark you were the light Victoria, ah Victoria Like the pleasure in the pain You were the sunlight through the rain Victoria, ah Victoria I miss you so Certain things cannot remain Like the moth into the flame With you that's what I became As I sit here in these chains The only thing that stays the same Is I keep calling out your name Ah ah, Victoria Ah ah, Victoria

Road Dog 03:02
Road dog you've been on this road for so long Slinging that guitar And singing them songs You know every highway from Ballard to Broadway Road dog you keep rolling on Your journey's had a lotta strange turns Road blocks to get through Never longer than a sojourn There's no settling you And you can see now where you're going as you check the rear view Home can't be closer for you The days they pass by in the blink of an eye You can't slow 'em down though you try The road takes from you and from loved ones your time The price paid to roll down the line Road dog you've been on this road for so long Slinging that guitar And singing them songs You know every highway from Ballard to Broadway Road dog you keep rolling on The years they pass by in the blink of an eye You can't slow 'em down though you try The road takes from you and from loved ones your time The price paid to roll down the line

I don't have expensive things It ain't easy trying to make a living on a six-string But it's alright, I wouldn't change a thing My day starts when the sun goes down and in the morning I'll be driving on to the next town, ain't always but I wouldn't change a thing They say there's a lot money out here to be made Well I've still haven't seen yet, maybe someday But it's alright, I wouldn't change a thing 'cause I can take or leave those material things And even if I ever get a chance to grab the brass ring It wouldn't matter cause I wouldn't change a thing Because I make a living driving, up and down the line Playing music for good people and we have a good time Sometimes they bring me whiskey, or a beer with a lime And some have been known to bring the smoke from time to time My day starts when the sun goes down and in the morning I'll be driving on to the next town It isn't easy, but I wouldn't change a thing
8.
Wrap me up in a blanket of smoke and whiskey There won't be anybody waiting at home to miss me Jukebox is gonna play my song You know the one where someone's been done wrong And I don't wanna be alone tonight So don't take me home Drop me off at the honky tonk Drop me off at the honky tonk It won't be long 'til this working day is through And when it's over, well I know just where I'm going to It's been so long they say I should forget about you Well that's real easy to say but not so easy to do But every cloud's gonna have a silver lining My is where the neon lights are brightly shining Jukebox is gonna play my song You know the one where someone's been done wrong And I don't wanna be alone tonight So don't take me home Drop me off at the honky tonk Drop me off at the honky tonk I don't wanna be alone tonight So drop me off at the honky tonk Wrap me up in a blanket of smoke and whiskey There won't be anybody waiting at home to miss me Jukebox is gonna play my song You know the one where someone's been done wrong And I don't wanna be alone tonight So don't take me home Drop me off at the honky tonk Drop me off at the honky tonk I don't wanna be alone tonight So drop me off at the honky tonk

Country Song 04:09
There's a country song playing on my radio It's bringing back some memories as I'm driving down this road And this song reminds of somebody I use to know But that was quite a while ago Where she is now, I don't know I must have spent a few too many miles on this road I miss the life I used to know And the longer that I move along, the more I know the road I'm on is wrong But I keep on hoping there is maybe some way Our paths will cross again some day And if I keep on believing, we'll meet again one day Got an old guitar in the back seat of my car I need to write a song tonight I got another one tonight It's another one about a man with a broken heart But I can make it end alright because it doesn't have to be real life I must have spent a few too many miles on this road Tell me where does the time go And the longer that I move along, the more I know the road I'm on is wrong But I keep on hoping there is maybe some way Our paths will cross again some day And if I keep on believing, we'll meet again one day

Pantalones 03:36
Mi pantalones Mi pantalones Mi pantalones Donde esta? Mi pantalones Donde estamos? I cannot find you Where did you go? One weekend I did go To Puerto Peñasco It's down in Mexico Where I lay on the sand I met some locals And there was a man He had marijuana There in his hand There was a fiesta Yo bebo cerveza Y dos cervezas Then dos more cervazas One in each hand And then came tequila and a mariachi band Too much fiesta I took a siesta There on the sand Mi pantalones Mi pantalones Mi pantalones Donde esta?

Drive Away 03:46
How did we end up in this place? What is it that we've come to face? If you you know that it can never last I guess it's better just to put it in the past And I don't want to have to let you down I don't want to have to let you down So if there's nothing left for you to say I think it's time for me to drive away You don't have to tell me like ain't fair When the unexpected hits you from nowhere And it ain't always easy standing ground When your world is upside down and turned around And I don't want to have to let you down I don't want to have to let you down So if there's nothing left for you to say I think it's time for me to drive away

Mexican Jail 03:50
18.
He missed your sister's wedding in Japan 'Cause he was doing hard time in the can He can't come home and stay for the holidays 'Cause they locked him up and threw the key away You shouldn't have fallen in love with a serial killer That's something only crazy bitches do Once you go falling in love with a serial killer Chances are things won't end well for you You say that he is just misunderstood He's done some bad things but he can still do good You say deep down inside he's really a sweet guy Can't understand why others wanna see him fry You shouldn't have fallen in love with a serial killer That's something only crazy bitches do Once you go falling in love with a serial killer Chances are things won't end well for you He can't fix broken things around the home or qualify to cosign on a loan and the next time you barbecue you should only make enough for you 'cause he'll be dining with the boys from cell block 2
19.
I was hanging with some buddies on a Saturday night When some guy starts talkin' tough and tries picking a fight I might have punched him in the nose if it was back in the day But I just shook his hand and bought his beer, it's better that way Some guy gave me the finger on the freeway today I think I might have cut him off, or somehow got in his way I might have run him off the road if it was back in the day But I just smiled and waved and let it go, it's better that way It's better that way So if you're in a situation and your feeling some frustration Let it go, let go 'cause you can't change what happens but you can change your reaction Don't you know "tranquilo." Well I just realized this song is not very long And if I really wanted I could go on and on But I think that I've said everything I wanted to say So I'll just keep it short and sweet, I think it's better that way
20.
The wheels on the bus Don't wanna go 'round We got another California breakdown We were doing alright 'til everything went wrong Now we're stuck on the side of the road where we don't belong It's a California Breakdown It's a California Breakdown Jessie's trying out for the next bit part This time she really nails it She played it from the heart This could be the big break The one she's waiting for But her only take is on the cutting room floor California Breakdown Feeling all alone far away from home Trying to figure out how she's gonna make it out here in this town It's a California Breakdown It's a California Breakdown Johnny's writing songs Out in Hollywood He just needs connections He knows his tunes are good Then he hears his song It's in a picture show Then he finds he's been wronged as he's sitting all alone and he watching the credits roll Another California Breakdown Stranded on the road Where souls are sold Trying figure out how he's gonna make it count here in this town It's a California Breakdown It's a California Breakdown

Elizabeth 03:32
As I drive around the bend to that Pennsylvania borderline again I seem to find, my mind racing back to you Wishing you were by my side Just the two of us, nothing to hide We find that place That only you and I can find And how I need you God knows I need you Liz how I miss you and how I wish that you were here with me tonight Hey Elizabeth Let's run away So far away we'll leave it all behind Elizabeth let's run away And start a brand new day tonight You say they wouldn't understand and I know I didn't figure in their plan But say what you will Nothing can change the way we feel Like Romeo and Juliet Ours is a love that time will not forget It will live on Long after you and I are gone Hey Elizabeth Let's run away So far away we'll leave it all behind Elizabeth let's run away And start a brand new day tonight And how I need you God knows I need you Liz how I miss you and how I wish that you were here with me tonight Hey Elizabeth Let's run away So far away we'll leave it all behind Elizabeth let's run away And start a brand new day tonight

Marie 04:03
Four riders behind me Three bullets left Two hours 'til sunset Just one regret I went lusting for gold I found only lead Lo siento, siento, Marie Marie, ah, Marie Even in death my heart waits only for thee Marie, ah, Marie Mi corazon pertenece Ahora y siempre En vida o muerte Solo a ti Crying, she stood in her white Sunday dress The wide world awaits, I would ride to possess My own envy and greed I let lure me away When I knew in my heart with Marie I should stay Marie, ah, Marie Even in death my heart waits only for thee Marie, ah, Marie Mi corazon pertenece Ahor e siempre En vida o muerte Solo a ti
26.
I see you acting high and mightier than thou All I can do is scratch my head and wonder how You get away with things you do and say You'll step on anyone who gets in your way Well I've had it up to here with you So what I'm gonna say is long overdue I'm getting tired of biting my lip So I'm doing you a favor and giving you a tip You got a problem You gotta fix that shit You got a problem Everybody's tired of it You flaunt your money, wear expensive clothes Buy pricey shoes to use for stepping on toes But there are certain things you can't buy with dough But that's something that you're never gonna know If you keep looking out for number one You're never gonna realize what you've done And like I said I'm tired of biting my lip So I'll say it once again, I'm shooting from the hip You got a problem You gotta fix that shit You got a problem Everybody's tired of it You think the world never did revolve around anyone but you You are the most important person in world in the eyes of you
