Lyrics

Look at all the fine things

You call your own

It took you a lifetime

To gather it all

Now it's out rotting

In the hot, hot sun

Where you gonna go

When the waters come?

 

It's just the way you want it

And you know it's good

A house and a family

In a neighborhood

One minute, you're thinking

Just how sweet life can be

Next you're begging for mercy

On a stormy sea

 

It'll wash over money

It'll drown the poor

Cold, black water

Coming through the door

No place to hide

No place to run

Where you gonna go

When the waters come?

 

So, you can have the silver

You can take all the gold

I don't want nothing bigger

Than my heart can hold

Something light as a feather

From a snow-white dove

Something to cling to

When the waters come

Lyrics

I've been dancin' with the Devil

On the head of a pin

Shows you just what kind of a mood I'm in

I'm a dangerous woman

With a lot on my mind

And I'm not sure

That you're my kind

 

I'm lookin' for a man

With staying power

Not one who will melt

In a soft rain shower

Who can take it now

Who can take it later

I'm not looking for

A master debater

I don't want a lot of talkin'

When I'm in the mood

To go dancin' with the Devil in the darkest wood

 

I can tell you right now

I can testify

I'm gonna have a party

In the Bye-and-Bye

I will sing and dance

I will strut my stuff

If you want to hang with me

Better hang tough

 

I want to go out dancin'

In the dark of night

The way I'm feeling

I don't need a light

If you wanna dance with me

You can come along

But I'll be dancin'

To my own song

 

Yeah, I've been dancin'

With the Devil O

n the head of a pin

Shows you just

What kind of a mood I'm in

Lyrics

Oh, what a surpirse

To see you again

In a place that you swore

That you'd never be in

With a bottle of whiskey

And a man by your side

And that look on your face

That you never could hide

But don't worry now, baby,

I'm going away

You win again

At least for today

'Cause you were the best hand

That I ever played

And I will never forget you LuAnne

 

I"ve got a bone in my pocket

Got an ace up my sleeve

I've got a bad attitude

When I'm ready to leave

So it's adios, baby,

And a sweet fare-thee-well

And I promise that someday

I'll see you in Hell

But don't worry now, baby,

I'll be on my way

You win again

At least for today

'Cause you were the best hand

That I ever played

And I will never forget you, LuAnne

 

The last thing I wanted

Was to run into you

I'm not looking for trouble

I was just passing through

I've got a one-way ticket

To the wide open West

And a .38 snub nose

Strapped to my chest

But don't worry now, baby

I'm going away

You win again

At least for today

But the next time we meet

There'll be Hell to pay

'Cause I'll never forgive you, LuAnne

No, I'll never forgive you, LuAnne

Lyrics

Saturday night cockfight

Chicken wire and tin

Daddy brought the family

And he parked beside the kinfolks

Oyster shell parking lot

Louisiana swamp

'Lilly, hold the baby,

While we put some money up'

So Lilly takes the baby

She goes to Charley's side

Saturday night cockfight

A Louisiana night

 

Two cocks in the cage

Whirling bloody spurs

Mama orders chicken dinners

Extra slaw with hers

Sister wants a Dr. Pepper

Daddy wants a beer

The black rooster goes down

Everybody cheers

Lilly squeezes Charley

And they take a walk outside

Saturday night cockfight

Another rooster dies

 

Then daddy wins 20 dollars

Has another drink

Mama gets the kids

And heads off to the roller rink

Later on she sits with daddy

In a folding chair

He kisses all her fingers

He smells her braided hair

Smoke from the factory

Blurs the golden lights

All along the bayou

On a Louisiana night

Lyrics

Daddy come and get me

'Cause it's dark tonight

And I'm standing on Drika's grave

The wind is in the trees

And there's no moonlight

On Drika's grave

 

Funny how you think you know

Where you're gonna go

When you leave home

So young and brave

But it's a winding road

That brought me here

To Drika's grave

 

I went to school

I studied hard

I made the grade

I planned my life

So carefully

I did everything

I was supposed to do

And I watched it eall apart on me

Funny what you leave behind

When you're running blind

And it's funny

The things you save

Now there's no place

I would rather be

Than waiting for you

On Drika's grave

 

I hear you coming for me

And I see the lights

No one else could find me

In the dark of night

And all I really had to do

Was call

And wait for you

On Drika's grave

Story

For so many of those girls out on the street, on their own and so very young.

Lyrics

She ran so far away

No one knew where

She came from

She left her family behind

With no intent to return

She left a mother

Who couldn't believe

The things that were happening

To her

She left a groping

Step-father behind

She left without a word

 

She ran as fast as she could

From the story

That she had to tell

She left her friends

Wondering why

She left all by herself

It's not a story

So unusual

It happens every day

All of these young girls

Feel so alone

That's why they run away

She landed out on the street

Picking up men

Along the way

They gave her

Something to eat

And sometimes

A place to stay

 

She is alone

Like she's always been

But she feels the choice

Is her own

She chooses who

She takes to her bed

Not the man

Who lives with her mom

 

She will never return

To the place

Where she was betrayed

Her mother

Never looked in her eyes

When she told her

She just turned away

Making her feel

Like it was her fault

Though she never

Said it that way

 

Her mother just couldn't

Face living alone

So she threw

Her daughter away

She may never believe

That love

Could be any other way

She believes

That love is a fight

You just have to push

Love away

 

She cries

Night after night

And lives in despair

Through the day

She lives Life on her own

She thinks it's better

That way

 

She ran so far away

No one knew where

She came from

Lyrics

Got me a man

I got me a car

Got me a lover

Hangin' off the end of the bar

I'm about as lowdown

As a person can be

I'm the kind of woman

Your mama don't want to meet

I'm a Mississippi Queen

In a one-horse Kansas town

 

My favorite drink

Is a buttery nipple

When it comes to makin' love

I like to keep it simple

I'm the kind of woman

Men love to hang on to

But I'm plumb bad

From my head to my shoes

I'm a Mississippi Queen

In a one-horse Kansas town

 

I can bring a man

To his knees

Down on the floor

Cryin, 'Please, please, please!'

I don't care

What kind of a soul he's got

It's only his money

That get's me hot

 

I wouldn't leave

Even if I had a mind

I guess I'm just not

The travelin' kind

I like to be a big fish

In a little pond

I'm like a fairy

Just a'waving my wand

I'm a Mississippi Queen

In a one-horse Kansas town

Yeah, I'm a Mississippi Queen

In a one-horse Kansas town

Lyrics

There are people starving

In the world

Battered and bruised and beaten

Compared to that My life is like

Living in Eden

But here I sit

With a broken heart

And it feels like my world Just fell apart

I know it's silly

But it really hurts

Compared to the troubles

All over the world

But my heart is broken

And I'm gonna cry tonight

 

I've seen the pictures of war and disgrace

I know there's suffering

All over the place

But I feel like my world

Just fell apart

And here I sit

WIth my silly broken heart

 

You were the rainbow

That colored my world

You were my sunshine

And light

But here I sit

All alone in the dark

Feeling sorry for myself

But it's all right

 

There will always be suffering

Throughout the world

No matter how you look at it

It's not right

But I'm gonna sit here

With my broken heart

And cry my eyes out

All night

Lyrics

Each time I see you

My heart does a funny thing

It holds its breath

And it begins to sing

I've never had this kind

Of feeling in my life

But, somehow, I know

That it's all right

You make me sing

You make me sing

 

When I was little

I can still recall

Sneaking down the stairs

On Christmas day

I was excited

I was nervous

And a little afraid

To my amazement

You make me feel

The same way

You make me sing

You make me sing

 

There have been moments in my life

When I was weak

When something powerful

Brought me to my knees

But in my life You are the most

Amazing thing

You make me sing

You make me sing

 

When my life is over

I'll recall this day

And how you were the one

Who made me feel this way

And in my final moments

I won't regret a thing

You made me sing

You made me sing

Lyrics

I once had a woman

But she tried to save my soul

I once had a bulldog

But she took it when she rolled

On down the road

 

We once had a nice house

In a neighborhood

But I drank too much whiskey

I did not do the things I should

So she rolled on down the road

 

And now the house sits empty

The yard is overgrown

I did not leave nobody there

To watch it while I'm gone

When I rolled on down the road

 

But I love to see the white lines

As they pass me by

We were like the sun and moon

We could not share The sky

She was like the Autumn moon

That lovers find so sweet

I was like The Summer sun

Full of fire and heat

 

But the good life

Ain't the only life

I can pick and choose

Somewhere between

The high road

And a sea of booze

I will roll on down the road

 

And now every girl's

My darlin'

Every place is home

As long as I've got whiskey

I will never be alone

As I roll on down the road

As I roll on down the road
