1. WHITE TRASH MILLIONAIRE

I've got a Trans-Am in primer paint
Nobody taught me, I was born this way
No silver spoon to feed a 401K
On Bourbon Street, the girls all scream
They callin' out my name

I wanna be a white trash millionaire
Ain't got much and I don't care
Count your cash and kiss my ass
This whole damn world gonna know I been here
I got two zig-zags and you know I'll share
I'm everyone from nowhere
White trash
White trash
White trash millionaire

Some got a castle of Mercedes Benz
Big time appointments
And all their fake friends
So tell me s'that as good as it gets
On the couch on the front porch
We're all smoking left-handed cigarettes

I wanna be a white trash millionaire
Ain't got much and I don't care
Count your cash and kiss my ass
This whole damn world gonna know I been here
I got two zig-zags and you know I'll share
I'm everyone from nowhere
White trash
White trash
White trash millionaire

Well
Get 'em up, get 'em up, get 'em up high
Now we gonna go from side to side
Front to back, back to front, front to back
Here we go, here we go

I wanna be a white trash millionaire
Ain't got much and I don't care
Count your cash and kiss my ass
This whole damn world gonna know I been here
I got two zig-zags and you know I'll share
I'm everyone from nowhere
White trash
White trash
White trash
White trash

I wanna be a white trash millionaire
Ain't got much and I don't care
Count your cash and kiss my ass
This whole damn world gonna know I been here
I got two zig-zags and you know I'll share
I'm everyone from nowhere
White trash
White trash
White trash millionaire




2. KILLING FLOOR

A plain stare with a smile on display
Headed home where it's empty and safe
Anger over takin' my faith
I don't think it should be this way

Some people say
I need to pray
Feels like it's me against the world
I been turned out
Been thrown down
To the killing floor (Down to the killing floor)

A thousand words on an empty page
A picture hangs without of frame
Shallow souls with time to kill
I took the water, but not the pill

Some people say
I need to pray
Feels like it's me against the world
I been turned out
Been thrown down
To the killing floor (Down to the killing floor)

I'm tired of you saying
I should be prayin'
I know it's me against the world
I been turned out
Been thrown down
To the killing floor (Down to the killing floor)




3. IN MY BLOOD

Right here right now we're falling apart while we're Falling down
Who knew to hurt would feel this good
Move along so far from home my mistakes go on and on
In truth I hate to be alone

Its in my blood and its in my bones
Its in my heart and soul
And when im gone I hope you'll understand
When I get home I will make amends
When Tuesday comes I'll be gone again
And when I'm gone I hope you'll understand

Its in my blood

I miss your touch and I miss your smile that thing you do That drives me wild
But you know it’s the way it has to be
Another day and another round I miss my friends
And my hometown
But in truth it’s the reason that I leave
Would you love me the same if I never started dreaming
Or are we better this way ever since I started leaving

Its in my blood and its in my bones
Its in my heart and soul
And when im gone I hope you'll understand
When I get home I will make amends
When Tuesday comes I'll be gone again
And when I'm gone I hope you'll understand




4. SUCH A SHAME

Another late night on 14th and main
Should daddy's little girl be out this late
She takes off her clothes and closes her eyes
Tears start to fall as she looks at her life

It wasn't her fault that you weren't around
To keep her away from the things that she found
God only knows what else could go wrong
Somebody come take this little girl home

They found her body face down dead in the rain
Such a shame
Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain
Who's to blame
Such a shame

Every young girl in this world needs love
Somebody to hold so they don't give up
It's our mothers and daughters and sisters you see
When your angel cries then you'll see what I mean

It wasn't her fault that you weren't around
To keep her away from the things that she found
God only knows what else could go wrong
Somebody come take this little girl home

They found her body face down dead in the rain
Such a shame
Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain
Who's to blame
Such a shame

There's a place in heaven for every little girl
Lord that gets taken in this dirty world

They found her body face down dead in the rain
Such a shame
Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain

They found her body face down dead in the rain
Such a shame
Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain
Such a shame

They found her body face down dead in the rain




5. WON'T LET GO

I wonder where we'll be
Will everything we see
Still look the way it does today
Will everything we have
Be everything it is
If we go our separate ways

Down by the river every summer we had nothing
But time on our side
Talking 'bout forever how we'd always be together

Life keeps us running, chasing and falling
But we won't let go
When the world keeps on turning
Our hearts are hurting we won't let go

I wonder where we'll be
When we're thirty three
Will we still be who we are
Will everything we know
Be everything we hoped
Will we still have thAT SPARK

Another cold December and I can still remember
The way you say
We'd always be together and no matter what the weather

Life keeps us running, chasing and falling
But we won't let go
When the world keeps on turning
Our hearts are hurting we won't let go

When the distance hurts and it all gets worse
These are the times that (we won't let go)
When the darkness fades we will still remain
Inseperable, unstoppable, invincible

Down by the river every summer we had nothing but time
Talking 'bout forever how we'd always be together

Life keeps us running, chasing and falling
But we won't let go
When the world keeps on turning
Our hearts are hurting we won't let go

Life keeps us running, chasing and falling
But we won't let go
When the world keeps on turning
Our hearts are hurting we won't let go




6. BLAME IT ON THE BOOM BOOM

Like big love, black love, white love, your love
Here we go
Sit back, hold up, open up, just enjoy the show
Like ice cream, whipped cream, nasty dreams
Do you know can you feel what I mean

Say Hey eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh
Oh oh oh oh
Say Hey eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh

It feels so good
And you knew that it would
When we're bringin' on the boom boom
You're so sweet from your head to your feet
When I'm givin' you the boom boom
If you wake up in the mornin 'in somebody
Else's room room
Blame it on the boom boom
Cause see I would ask you where you like it...mmmm...
I'm gonna tell you where you gonna get it
In the bedroom, the bathroom, the classroom,
The last room on the left
In my fantasy, you're next to me
I'm givin' you my everything, my very best
Do you like backbeats, backseats, summer heat come
I wanna hear everybody say
Hey

Do you like big yeah, black yeah, white yeah,
Sho' nuff here we go




7. LIKE I ROLL

I got my daddy’s car and his old guitar
A suitcase full of broken hearts
Got my momma’s smile and her baby blue eye
I ain’t got much but what I got is mine
And I roll like I roll
I got an open road and a restless soul
The Rolling Stones on the radio
And I roll like I roll
Cause I roll like I roll

I roll like the hills under the California sun
Burn through the desert like a devil on the run
I’ll be flying high till the day that I die
No matter what they say
Cus' at the end of the day I roll like I roll

Well there’s a lot a people gonna try to bring you down
They got a lot of rules they're gonna try to put you out
I keep looking up in this world full of doubt
I roll like I roll

I roll like the hills under the California sun
Burn through the desert like a devil on the run
I’ll be flying high till the day that I die
No matter what they say
At the end of the day

I'm not gonna let it slip away
Cus' I'd rather burn it out than to let it fade

I got an open road
And a restless soul
The Rolling Stones on the radio
And I roll like I roll

I roll through the hills of my own Kentucky home
Back to the place where my heart belongs
I’ll be flying high till the day that I die
No matter what they say
At the end of the day
I did it my way




8. CAN'T YOU SEE

Gonna take a freight train
Down at the station
And I don't care where it goes
Gonna climb a mountain
The highest mountain, Lord
Gonna jump off, and nobody gonna know

Can't you see, whoa, can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me
Can't you see, whoa, can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me

I'm gonna find me
A hole in the wall
I'm gonna crawl inside and die
'Cause my lady
A mean ol' woman, Lord
She never told me goodbye

Can't you see, whoa, can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me
Can't you see, whoa, can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me

I’m gonna take a southbound
Down to Georgia, now
I ain’t never coming back
I’m gonna buy me a ticket, Lord
And go as far as I can
Till that train run out of track

Can't you see, whoa, can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me
Can't you see, whoa, can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me




9. LET ME SEE YOU SHAKE

The beat went spinnin' round again
And these five words are what i said

Let me see you shake
Let me see you shake
Let me see you shake what ya mama gave you down
To the floor (and then some more)
Let me see you shake

She'd been going all night long
Then she said aw damn this is my song
The beat went spinnin' round again
And these five words are what I said

It must been about a quarter to three
That girl was hailin' a cab outside the whiskey
She squeezed my lemon just to drink the juice
But California love is what turned her loose




10. STAY

I'd sell my soul just to see your face
And i'd break my bones just to heal your pain
And in these times I need a saving grace
Cuz time is running out and I'm starting to lose my faith

But if I told you I loved you would it make you wanna stay
I'm sorry for the
Way I make you feel day after day
If I wrote you a love song and sang it to you every day
Would it make you, make you wanna stay

My hearts on my sleeve but it's turning black
And without your touch I'm not gonna last
It feels like my walls are caving in
And I'll do anything to have you here again

My days are cold the nights are long
I can't stand to be alone
Please know this is not your fault
All I want is to tell you I love you
And make you wanna stay
I'm sorry for the way I make you feel day after day

Would it make you, make you wanna stay
(I'm sorry for my ways)
Would it make you, make you wanna stay
(will it ever be enough)
Would it make you, make you wanna stay




11. CHANGE

You promised, we believed you
Now the water’s getting high
My god I, you god you,
Why must we choose and die
Yeah, yeah
Why must we choose and die

We are, we are
Waiting, waiting
We keep hearin’ the change has come and gone
It’s been too long
If it’s coming
I wanna know where the change is comin' from

You promised, we believed you
Now the water’s getting high
My god I, you god you,
Why must we choose and die
Yeah, yeah
Why must we choose and die

We are, we are
Waiting, waiting
We keep hearin’ the change has come and gone
It’s been too long
If it’s comin’
I wanna know where the change is coming from

Make no move
It’s dark
It’s true
If you can
It’s time
You do

We are, we are
Waiting, waiting
We are, we are
We’re waiting for a change

We are, we are
Waiting, waiting
We keep hearin’ the change has come and gone
It’s been too long
If it’s comin’
I wanna know where the change is coming from




12. ALL I'M DREAMIN'OF

Something about our world today
That makes me wanna cry
There's too much anger and too much pain
Too much money and too many lies
If I could have one wish tonight
I would beg of us to forget our pride
If we could do just one thing right,
We could help each other to love our lives

All I'm dreaming of is good times, good friends,
And somebody to love
All I'm dreaming of is no fears, no tears
And blue skies up above

There's people around us everywhere
Who need help like you and me
A family was taken by a storm
And we just watched it on TV
If I could have one wish tonight
I would beg of us to forget our pride
If we could do just one thing right
We could help each other to love our lives

When one things right another is wrong
But in the end love will always keep us strong

All I'm dreaming of is a house
On a hill and somebody to love
All I'm dreaming of is the sun to shine
And blue skies up above




BONUSTRACKS




13. STARING AT THE MIRROR

Beautiful flowers lying lonely on a grave
Such a beautiful smile trying hard to hide the pain
I would have loved to have loved you with every waking hour
Now through the good times and bad
All I'm ever gonna have are these beautiful flowers

Sometimes your right
Sometimes your wrong
Sometimes you fight
Sometimes you fall
Maybe its me still missing you
Sometimes a lie is better then the truth
If I'm wrong, ill be damned
Your still gone and here I stand
Staring at the mirror again.

Yesterdays tears are forgivin by the rain
Tomorrows goodbyes are always standin in the way
I would have loved to have kept you
But didn't have the power
While times still movin on, you know I'm still holdin on
To these beautiful flowers




14. FADE AWAY

If I died today
I wonder what you'd say
Would you criticize my life
Or smile and wave goodbye

If I died today
Would you be afraid
Would you be thankful for the time
Or would you hang your head and cry

Coz Girl I know it could go either way

Baby Baby don't you love me?
All your tears wont change your past
They'll only drown the smiles on your face
And maybe Baby all that we had,
Was never ever meant to last
So let me go, but don't you let me fade, away

Don't you let me fade

If you close a door, swim for the shore
Walk straight into the sun and let the healing horses run
Coz it won't do you any good to bleed
Another tear, Oh what became of me?

Baby Baby don't you love me?
All your tears wont change your past
They'll only drown the smiles on your face
And maybe Baby all that we had,
Was never ever meant to last
So let me go, but don't you let me fade

When he holds you in his arms, and your laying in my bed
Does he turn you on, the way that I did?

Baby Baby don't you love me?
All your tears wont change your past
They'll only drown the smiles on your face
And maybe Baby all that we had,
Was never ever meant to last
So let me go, but don't you let me fade

Fade Away, Fade Away
Please don't let me fade
Please don't let me go
Don't you let me, let me go




15. DIE FOR YOU

I know tonight I will wrap myself around you
In the moonlight
I can feel your breath
It makes me feel alive
Alive
I’m alive
I’m alive

Are you willing to fight for me
Are you willing to sacrifice
Cause you know I would die for you
I would die for you
Are you willing to live for me
Are you willing to sacrifice
Cause you know I would die for you
I would die for you

And I know tonight
We will slowly lose ourselves
In the moonlight
I can hear your voice
It makes me feel alive
Alive
I’m alive
I’m alive

Are you willing to fight for me
Are you willing to sacrifice
Cause you know I would die for you
I would die for you
Are you willing to live for me
Are you willing to sacrifice
Cause you know I would die for you
I would die for you

(Die for you)
Are you willing to fight for me
Are you willing to sacrifice
(Die for you)
Cause you know I would die for you
I would die for you
(Die for you)
Are you willing to live for me
Are you willing to sacrifice
(Die for you)
Cause you know I would die for you (I would die for you)
I would die for you
(Die for you)
