I'm done pretending that I can be someone who's ascending all the ladders of this world but I got someone that I can hold onto and it's you yeah it's you Guess I've grown up taking my sweet time maybe I've blown up all the states of my mind but you better believe me cause I got something that's true Lucillia you got a hold of my heart Lucillia don't keep it all inside Lucillia we should stay friends for just a little while longer till it goes somewhere I've got a feeling that I can't feel I've been wondering what's beyond that hill cause there's a freedom in losing myself in you Lucillia you got a hold of my heart Lucillia don't keep it all inside Lucillia we should stay friends for just a little while longer till it goes somewhere

I took the long road I took the long road back to you. I wasn’t blinded I was looking for something to do. High lonely mountain I hear you calling out my name. Somewhere out beyond the city where life can get so strange. I took the long road I took the long road to you. Now I can see the water coming back into my view. High lonely mountain I hear you calling out my name. Somewhere out beyond the city where life get’s so insane. But tonight we’re gonna be alright. In the morning we’ll hang around. From now on I will understand you.

Low down look around take me in the morning then you shut me down Thin wall gone away looking for the best of my days Take me take it far summertime when the loving calls you been Blowed out to the wind either way I know that I been down. Pulled deep from the ground hung it high when you hung around and went wayside back again told me that you'd be my friend Came home held the hand packed her bags then she left again and said Pull me from the ground either way I know that I been down. Sunk hard like a bite, struck the chord of the evening light and went Full steam turn it on whiskey bottle till it's gone Loves hard makes you cry love is hard it will make you die Come back steal the rain flowing like the blood inside my veins.

out in Kentucky met a girl named molly we had some dinner and a drink or two now my heads spinning i found religion i kept a photo of what we went through we drove my pickup out over Whitesburg i heard the crickets and the snakes and squirrels out to the holler blue mountain molly she made me do things that i swore id never do out in the country i saw my family grammas and grandpas and the devil too i started screaming burning and bleeding the flaming reds and the greens and blue mountain molly... molly's got a thing for me she keeps me warm and feeling free tries to give me comfort in the loneliness of night molly's got it out for me she trips me up when i can't see leads me to the deepest and the darkest of my fright back to the city my life ain't pretty i got a secret that I can't declare that girl named molly blue mountain molly only the devil knows i buried her out there...

You walked the line for much too long Undying love has come and gone Her golden hair and killer eyes That made you weep under the sky You lost a friend of many years All is lost when you're living in fear You had time and you had space But couldn't run one simple race Through hills and trees and kettle ponds You marked the path with willow wands Nobody's gonna keep you down You just have to pick yourself up So don't try looking in her mind It's all downhill until you're fine and you know that love will make you blind for sometime Close your eyes but you don't sleep You see the climb but it's too steep Your body's broke and broken down You put your head against the ground It hurts to know that you were wrong but you can sing a brighter song now For all the times you took her name and all the times you played the game Cast the line and reeled it in and caught the unforgiven sin But nobody's gonna keep you down You just have to pick yourself up So don't try looking in her mind It's all downhill until you're fine and you know that love will make you blind for sometime

you woke up today the sun was on your face looking for a reason looking for your place oh thoughts of other times when your life was true now its time for moving on you gotta leave those goodbye blues people come and people go yeah you've lost some friends you cheated and you stole you even lost some bets oh but learning don't come easy sometimes you gotta lose take what you can get and leave those goodbye blues all the miles that you've walked all those lovers that you loved people talking all their talk they might push and they might shove oh but everyone is changing they're trying on new shoes maybe you should try on some and leave those goodbye blues remember where you come from and know where you can go take care of your loved ones take the time to grow and keep following your heart what do you got to lose nothing but your troubles and all those goodbye blues.

I am a traveler at the speed of light, I don't know where I'll be sleeping tonight But If you see me won't you please shine your light I'm just a boy The World is spinning and it's out of control, too many people with nowhere to go Just when you start to think that you're on a roll you get stranded I wish that we could go back in time We were young and we were feeling alright I could hold you and you could be mine for a while Too many cars, not enough gas Too many losers that try to get past Too many addicts living to fast and going nowhere She was a poet and a writer of songs Stuck in the middle of a world gone wrong Never going where she could belong but where she was chosen I wish that we could go back in time We were young and we were feeling alright I could hold her and she could be mine for a while Too many fools, not enough gold Too many people that do what their told Too many faces never get to grow old and I wonder I wish that we could go back in time We were young and we were feeling alright I could hold you and you could be mine for a while But the days turn to rain, and I just smile and refrain She just called me insane but I just wasn't listening

I'm not the child I used to be Everything is upside down and blue My friends don't even know me They gave up when I told them what I had to do And all the dreams I dreamed of Got buried when I had to make my plans It's hard enough to get by, but it's harder when you're fighting for the man I look around these battlefields Everything is bloody and intensified And religion drives us crazy And the government deceives us when they're telling lies You can say that it's for freedom, but either way i'm doing what I can I signed up for a second chance instead I"m stuck here fighting for the man My father told me that life was never fair He worked his whole life and he didn't even care He loved his wife and family And he would fight for his country And even though they took all that he had He taught me how to work hard for the man It's a long way back to living When everything has changed inside my head They tried to break my spirit They tried to tell me I would wind up dead But i'm coming home a new man, and if you want to you can lend a hand I'm proud to be American but I sure as hell ain't fighting for the man.
