On The Border Album

Already Gone

 

Well, I heard some people talkin’ just the other day

And they said you were gonna put me on a shelf

But let me tell you I got some news for you

And you’ll soon find out it’s true

And then you’ll have to eat your lunch all by yourself

‘Cause I’m already gone

And I’m feelin’ strong

I will sing this vict’ry song, woo, hoo,hoo,woo,hoo,hoo

The letter that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why

But I guess you felt like you had to set things right

Just remember this, my girl, when you look up in the sky

You can see the stars and still not see the light (that’s right)

And I’m already gone

And I’m feelin’ strong

I will sing this vict’ry song, woo, hoo,hoo,woo, hoo,hoo

Well I know it wasn’t you who held me down

Heaven knows it wasn’t you who set me free

So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains

And we never even know we have the key

But me, I’m already gone

And I’m feelin’ strong

I will sing this vict’ry song

‘Cause I’m already gone

Yes, I’m already gone

And I’m feelin’ strong

I will sing this vict’ry song

‘Cause I’m already gone

Yes, I’m already gone

Already gone

All right, nighty-night

You Never Cry Like A Lover

 

You never cry like a lover should

Sigh when it feels real good

Or see the sky through the stone and wood

You never cry like a lover

I thought I saw somebody I loved

Sleeping deep inside you

If I could catch you in an unguarded moment

I’d stay right here beside you

You never smile at me late at night

Laugh out loud when we get it right

You can’t get loose if there’s too much light

You never smile like a lover

I can’t live with you baby, can’t live without it

And sometimes I believe in love

Sometimes I doubt it

But your life goes on

Like a broken down carousel

Where somebody left the music on

You never move like you used to do

Pour it out when you’re feelin’ blue

Somebody must have put some pain on you

You never cry like a lover

(You never Cry Like a Lover)

Cry

(You never cry like a lover)

You never cry

(Cry like a lover)

Come on and cry

(You never cry like a lover)

Midnight Flyer

 

Oo, Midnight Flyer

Engineer, won’t you let your whistle moan?

Oo, Midnight Flyer

I paid my dues and I feel like trav’lin’ on

A runaway team of horses ain’t enough to make me stay

So throw your rope on another man

And pull him down your way

Make him into someone who can take the place of me

Make him every kind of fool you wanted me to be

Oo, Midnight Flyer

Engineer, won’t you let your whistle moan?

Oo, Midnight Flyer,

I paid my dues and I feel like trav’lin’ on

Maybe I’ll go to Santa Fe, maybe San Antone,

Any town is where I’m bound any way to get me gone

Don’t think about me, never let me cross your mind

‘Cept when you hear that midnight lonesome whistle whine

Oo, Midnight Flyer

Engineer, won’t you let your whistle moan?

Oo, Midnight Flyer

I paid my dues and I feel like trav’lin’ on

I paid my dues and I feel like trav’lin’ on

My Man

 

Tell me the truth, how do you feel?

Like you’re rollin’ so fast that you’re spinnin’ your wheels?

Don’t feel too bad, you’re not all along

We’re all tryin’ to get along

With ev’rybody else try’n’ to go their way

You’re bound to get tripped, and what can you say?

Just go along ’til they turn out the lights

There’s nothin’ we can do to fight it

No man’s got it made till he’s far beyond the pain

And we who must remain go on living just the same

I once knew a man, very talented guy

He’s sing for the people and people would cry

They knew that his song came from deep down inside

You could hear it in his voice and see it in his eyes

And so he traveled along, touch your heart, then be gone

Like a flower, he bloomed till that old hickory wind

Called him home

My man’s got it made

He’s gone far beyond the pain

And we who must remain go on living just the same

We who must remain go on laughing just the same

On The Border

 

Cruisin’ down the center of a two way street

Wond’rin’ who is really in the driver’s seat

Mindin’ my bus’ness along comes big brother

Says, “Son, you better get on one side or the other.”

I’m out on the border, I’m walkin’ the line

Don’t you tell me ’bout your law and order

I’m try’n’ to change this water to wine.

After a hard day, I’m safe at home

Foolin’ with my baby on the telephone

Out of nowhere somebody cuts in and

Says, “Hmm, you in some trouble boy, we know where you’re been.”

I’m out on the border

I thought this was a private line

Don’t you tell me ’bout your law and order

I’m try’n’ to change this water to wine

Never mind your name, just give us your number, mm

Never mind your face, just show us your card, mm

And we wanna know whose wing are you under

You better step to the right or we can make it hard

I’m stuck on the border

All I wanted was some peace of mind

Don’t you tell me ’bout your law and order

I’m try’n’ to change this water to wine

On the border

On the border

On the border

On the border

On the border

Leave me be , I’m just walkin’ this line

On the border

On the border

All I wanted was some peace of mind, peace of mind

I’m out on the border

On the border

Can’t you see I’m tryin to change this water to wine

Don’t you tell me ’bout your law and order

Sick and tired of all your law and order

Sick and tired of it

James Dean

 

James Dean, James Dean

I know just what you mean

James Dean, you said it all so clean

And I know my life would look allright

If I could see it on the silver screen

You were the lowdown rebel if there ever was

Even if you had no cause

James Dean, you said it all so clean

And I know my life would look all right

If I could see it on the silver screen

We’ll talk about a low-down bad refrigerator,

You were just too cool for school

Sock hop, soda pop, basketball and auto shop,

The only thing that got you off was breakin’ all the rules

James Dean, James Dean

So hungry and so lean

James Dean, you said it all so clean

And I know my life would look all right

If I could see it on the silver screen

Little James Dean, up on the screen

Wond’rin’ who he might be

Along came a Spyder and picked up a rider

And took him down the road to eternity

James Dean, James Dean, you bought it sight unseen

You were too fast to live, too young to die, bye-bye

You were to fast to live, too young to die, bye-bye

Bye-bye, Bye-bye, Bye-bye, Bye, bye

Ol’ 55

 

Well, my time went to quickly

I went lickety-splitly out to my old fifty-five

As I pulled away slowly, feelin’ so holy,

God knows I was feelin’ alive

And now the sun’s comin’ up

I’m ridin’ with Lady Luck

Freeway cars and trucks

Stars beginning to fade, and I lead the parade

Just a wishin’ I’d stayed a little longer

Lord, don’t you know the feelin’s gettin’ stronger

Six in the morning, gave me no warnin’

I had to be on my way

Now the cars are all passin’ me,

Trucks are all flashin’ me

I’m headed home from your place

And now the sun’s comin’ up

I’m ridin’ with Lady Luck

Freeway cars and trucks

Stars beginning to fade, and I lead the parade

Just a wishin’ I’d stayed a little longer

Lord, don’t you know, the feelin’s gettin’ stronger

Well, my time went to quickly

I went lickety-splitly out to my old fifty-five

As I pulled away slowly, feelin’ so holy,

God knows I was feelin’ alive

And now the sun’s comin’ up, yes it is

I’m ridin’ with Lady Luck

Freeway cars and trucks

Freeway cars and trucks,

Ridin’ with Lady Luck

Freeway cars and trucks,

Ridin’ with Lady Luck

Freeway cars and trucks

Ridin’ with Lady Luck…

Is It True?

 

How come you love him when he

Takes you for a fool

He’s only lookin’ for a good time

How can he love you when he

Treats you mean and cruel

He’s not the best thing that you could find

Is it true?

I can’t believe it

Is it true?

I just can’t see it

Is it true?

Is that you?

When we were young, we didn’t really have a care

You were hung up, I had a good line

I never knew it then but, man, I was in love

How could I know it was the right time?

Is it true?

You’ve lost that feelin’?

Is is true?

You might be leavin’?

Is it true?

Don’t wanna find out

Yes, I was so wrong

For leading you on

There wasn’t much I could do

I was a wild one, but I can change some

If that’s important to you

Is it true- you’ve lost that feelin’?

Is it true- you might be leavin’?

Is it true?

Is it true?

She’s really leavin’

She’s really leavin’

Good Day In Hell

 

Move in,

Can’t you see she wants you

She has you deep in her eyes

You been wond’rin’ why she haunts you

Beauty in the devil’s disguise

She can tell you all about it

She sees it in the stars

She’ll burn you if you try to put her down

Oh well, it’s been a good day in hell

And tomorrow I’ll be glory bound

Higher,

She can keep you loaded,

Feedin’ you whiskey and wine

Fire,

The devil’s on the phone, he laughs

And says you’re doin’ the just fine

In that big book of names I wanna go down

In flames

Seein’s how I’m goin’ down

Oh well, it’s been a good day in hell

And tomorrow I’ll be glory bound

Truckin’,

That’s all that I’ve been doin’

Ev’ry girl’s a fork in the road

Stuck in some sticky situations

Feelin’ like I wanna explode

All this gratification and sick conversation

Someone get me out of town

Oh well, it’s been a good day in hell

And tomorrow I’ll be glory bound

The Best Of My Love

 

Every night I’m lyin’ in bed

Holdin’ you close in my dreams

Thinkin’ about all the things that we said

And comin’ apart at the seams

We try to talk it over

But the words come out to rough

I know you were tryin’

to give me the best of your love

Beautiful faces and loud, empty places

Look at the way that we live

Wastin’ our time on cheap talk and wine

Left us so little to give

That same old crowd

Was like a cold dark cloud

That we could never rise above

But here in my heart I give you the best of my love

Oh sweet darlin’ you get the best of my love, oh

Sweet darlin’, you get the best of my love

I’m goin’ back in time

And it’s a sweet dream

It was a quiet night

And I would be all right

If i could go on sleepin’

But every mornin’

I wake up and worry

What’s gonna happen today

You see it your way

And I see it mine

But we both see it slippin’ away

You know we always had each other baby

I guess that wasn’t enough

Oh, but here in my heart

I give you the best of my love

Oh, sweet darlin’

You get the best of my love

Oh, sweet darlin’

You get the best of my love

Every night and day,

You get the best of my love

Oh, sweet darlin’ you get the best of my love

Oh, sweet darlin’ you get the best of my love..

etc..
