Album: 6 Strings 9 Lives

 

6 Strings 9 Lives

Yeah I’m back,
And I’m here to stay rock and rollin’,
The same old way,
Thing ain’t changed,
Since I’ve been gone,
Couldn’t hold me down too long,

Money, managers, lawyers and wives,
Said it was over,
But I survived,
They’re all gone and I’m doin’ fine,
You know I got,
Six strings nine lives,
Six strings nine lives,

Time’s got rough,
And things got mean,
Life got bad behind the scene,
It was hell out on the road,
Living in the danger zone,

Doctors, preachers, record company guys,
Said it was over,
But I survived,
They’re all gone and I’m doin’ fine,
You know I got,
Six strings nine lives,
Six strings nine lives,

Yeah you’re back,
And you’re here to stay rock and rollin’,
The same old way,
Things ain’t changed,
Since you’ve been gone,
Couldn’t hold you down too long,

Money, managers, lawyers and wives,
Said it was over,
But you survived,
They’re all gone and you’re doin’ fine,
You know you’ve got,
Six strings nine lives,
Six strings nine lives,

 

 

Oxycontin

I know this guy,
This friend of mine,
You could say that,
He had it made,
Money and time,
Were both on his side,
(But) Now something has changed,

He was hanging at the park,
With his friends,
On a bright summer day,
When a man came to him,
Said try some of this,
Now he can’t get away,

Oxycontin in the morning,
Oxycontin just to start the day,
Oxycontin need some more now,
Oxycontin now you can’t get away,

Can’t keep up with his secrets,
Can’t keep up with the lies,
Got some needle marks on his arm,
That he has to hide,

He owes a little bit of money,
And he’s getting behind,
But the dealers don’t play,
When you got to pay,
They just might take your life,

Oxycontin in the morning,
Oxycontin just to start the day,
Oxycontin got control now,
It’s a dangerous game,

You know his family tried to help him,
They did all they can do,
But it comes down to this,
There’s no way to quit,
When you’ve nothing to lose,

Oxycontin in the morning,
Oxycontin just to start the day,
Oxycontin got control now,
Is gonna get you some day,

 

 

Easy Rider

Well they call him easy rider,
Watch him as he flies by,
Got the wind blowin’ through his hair,
Chrome gleaming motor bike,

He’s headed down the road ,
Cause his horse has got to roll,
Easy Rider, Easy Rider,
Can’t stick around too long,
In the morning he’ll be gone easy rider,

Easy, easy rider,
Got some oil and gasoline,
Ain’t no use to try and change him,
Livin’ like the wind he is free,

Well he’s headed down the road ,
Cause his horse has got to roll,
Easy Rider,
Easy Rider,
Can’t stick around too long,
In the morning he’ll be gone easy rider

Easy, easy rider,
Sound of thunder in the sky,
Runnin’ on fumes, got nothing to lose,
Just a wave goodbye,

Well he’s headed down the road ,
Cause his horse has got to roll,
Easy Rider,
Easy Rider,
Can’t stick around too long,
In the morning he’ll be gone easy rider

Well they call him easy rider,
Watch him as he flies by,
Got the wind blowin’ through his hair,
Chrome Screamin’ motor bike,

Well he’s headed down the road ,
Cause his horse has got to roll,
Easy Rider,
Easy Rider,

Can’t stick around too long,
In the morning he’ll be gone,
Easy Rider,
Easy Rider,

Can;t stick around too long,
In the morning he’ll be gone,
Easy Rider,
Easy Rider,

Rock n’ Roller

Bobby puts his amp in the back seat,
Packs his guitar away,
Eighty mile drive on interstate five,
He’s got another show to play,

He doesn’t make much money,
You know the crowds kinda’ thin,
But he’s got a wife and baby at home,
They’re both dependin’ on him,

He’s a rock and roller,
It’s do or die,
Born with the will to survive,
He’s a rock and roller,
He’s gotta’ fight,
Keeping his dreams alive,

Sandy works the late shift at the diner,
Making sure the tables are clean,
Regular guests remember her best,
She was a home town beauty queen,

She got in trouble after high school,
Then her man ran away,
But life goes on she has to be strong,
And that’s the way she will stay,

She’s a rock and roller,
It’s do or die,
Born with the will to survive,
She’s a rock and roller,
She’s gotta ‘fight,
Keeping her dreams alive,

Tom puts on his suit in the morning,
Fixes his hair and his tie,
He’s got a conference out in phoenix,
Has to catch a morning flight,

His college days are behind him,
The business world is cut throat,
But he’ll stay the same not gonna’ change,
You know he won’t be bought or sold,

He’s a rock and roller,
It’s do or die,
Born with the will to survive,
He’s a rock and roller,
He’s gotta ‘fight,
Keeping his dreams alive,
Keeping her dreams alive,

 

 

 

Florida

I’ve been travelin’ down the road,
I’ve been about everyplace you could go,
I’ve seen Paris, London, Munich too,
Done about everything I could do,
But I can’t wait to get on back to Florida,

Sunshine and a sandy beach,
Pretty girls and orange trees,
There’s a gator crossin’ the road way down in Florida,
(Well) it’s hotter than hell on a summer night,
Good people there gonna’ treat you right,
Well there ain’t no place I’d rather be than Florida,

That city life was bringing me down,
My feets was freezing on the ground,
Started thinking bout blue sky,
Daytona and my motor bike,
So I just had to get back home to Florida,

Sunshine and a sandy beach,
Pretty girls and orange trees,
There’s a gator crossin’ the road way down in Florida,
Well it’s hotter than hell on a summer night,
Bounty hunter at the harborside,
Well there ain’t no place I’d rather be than Florida,

So when you get that travelin’ bone,
Head down to the place that I call home,
Want to feel that southern breeze,
Gonna’ pack your bags and leave,
You just got to get right down to Florida,

Sunshine and a sandy beach,
Pretty girls and orange trees,
There’s a gator crossin’ the road way down in Florida,
Well it’s hotter than hell on a Saturday night,
Bounty hunter at the harborside,
Well there ain’t a place I’d rather be than Florida,

 

 

 

Black Gold

Louisiana April sunny day,
Shrimp boats leaving,
Head out to the bay,
Commerce fishin’,
That’s their way of life,
Oil spill happens,
It changes overnight,

Black Gold on the open sea,
Black gold can’t stop it now,
Black gold there’s another leak,
Keep drillin’ black gold,

Birds once flyin’,
Are drowning in the gulf,
Fish are dyin’,
And oil is on the coast,
Man from BP ,
Say’s he has a plan,
Carpet bagger,
Got money for your hand,

Black Gold on the open sea,
Black gold can’t stop it now,
Black gold there’s another leak,
Keep killin’ black gold,

Louisiana,
Knows what it’s about,
Politicians promise,
Then they sell you out,
Tony Hayward,
On his way back home,
Pockets full,
From Louisianan black gold,

Black Gold on the open sea,
Black gold can’t stop it now,
Black gold there’s another leak,
Black money, black gold,

 

 

 

Southern Rock

Now when I get that feelin’ in my bones,
You know I just can’t stick around too long,
I got to get up and move my feet,
To a sound that can’t be beat,

Just give me some of that southern rock and roll,
The kind of music take your troubles away,
Just give me some of that southern rock and roll,
And take me back to another day,

Kick start your motor bike,
And grab yourself a beer,
There’s a juke joint down the road,
About four miles from here,

They got a band tonite,
That plays them southern sounds,
Skynyrd , Hatchett, Allmans too,
That’s what I’m talkin’ bout,

Just give me some of that southern rock and roll,
That kind of music takes your troubles away,
Just give me some of that southern rock and roll,
And take me back to another day,

 

 

 

High Roller

I think I’ll take my chances,
Cause I can’t play it safe,
Sometimes you got to gamble,
To get your lucky break,
We all love a winner,
No one likes to lose,
Hot dice on the table,
When I walked into the room,

I’m a high roller baby,
High rollin’ kinda man,
Got to take your chances where you find them,
Gonna shake those dice and watch em’ land,

The odds are stacked against me,
But I don’t pay no mind,
Snake eyes sometimes get ya,
Don’t win every time,
I’ll bet all or nothing,
Cause that’s the only way,
Rather go down big time,
Cause that’s the way I play,

I’m a high roller baby,
High rollin’ kinda man,
Got to take your chances where you find them,
Gonna shake those dice and watch em’ land,

Now don’t you get discourged,
If you’re dealt a losin hand,
Now your on the bottom,
You’ll be back on top my friend,
Gotta play the game,
If you ever hope to win,
Seems you luck is changing,
And you’re beatin’ the odds again,

You’re a high roller baby,
High rollin’ kinda man,
Got to take your chances where you find them,
Gonna shake those dice and watch em’ land,

 

 

 

Lakeland

There’s a town called Lakeland,
Baby you know that’s where I’m from,
There’s a town called Lakeland,
Baby you know that’s where I’m from,
Got gators, lakes, birds and snakes,
Some down home Americans,

There’s a town called Lakeland,
Baby I just had to get away,
There’s a town called Lakeland,
Baby I just had to get away,
Packed my bags ran down the road,
But I knew I’d be back some day,

There’s a town called Lakeland,
Twenty years things ain’t changed,
There’s a town called Lakeland,
Twenty years things ain’t changed,
Don’t matter much anyway,
Where you go you stay the same,

There’s a town called Lakeland,
Baby won’t you come along,
There’s a town called Lakeland,
Baby won’t you come along,
Got famous, birds and snakes,
But there sure’s hell ain’t much goin’ on,
But there sure ain’t much goin’ on,

 

 

 

One More for the Road

All alone tonight,
Standing on the stage,
The light is shining now,
One song left to play

I hate to leave but I must go,
So here’s one more for the road,

The bus is leaving in the morning,
The band has got to roll,
Another town tomorrow,
On a never ending road,

I hate to leave but I must go,
So here.s one more for the road,

Time has come my friend,
The curtain has to close,
If we never meet again,
There’s something you should know,

I hate to leave but I must go,
So here’s one more for the road,

 

 

 

6 Stings 9 Lives (Extended Cut)

Yeah I’m back,
And I’m here to stay rock and rollin’,
The same old way,
Thing ain’t changed,
Since I’ve been gone,
Couldn’t hold me down too long,

Money, managers, lawyers and wives,
Said it was over,
But I survived,
They’re all gone and I’m doin’ fine,
You know I got,
Six strings nine lives,
Six strings nine lives,

Time’s got rough,
And things got mean,
Life got bad behind the scene,
It was hell out on the road,
Living on the danger zone,

Doctors, preachers, record company guys,
Said it was over,
But I survived,
They’re all gone and I’m doin’ fine,
You know I got,
Six strings nine lives,
Six strings nine lives,

Yeah you’re back,
And you’re here to stay rock and rollin’,
The same old way,
Things ain’t changed,
Since you’ve been gone,
Couldn’t hold you down too long,

Money, managers, lawyers and wives,
Said it was over,
But you survived,
They’re all gone and you’re doin’ fine,
You know you’ve got,
Six strings nine lives,
Six strings nine lives,
