48. All Aboard  by Del McCoury and the Boys
       Biography    Buy on Itunes   
I can feel the wheels turning underneath my feet
As I pull the shade down on my window seat
Praying where I'm going is better than where I've been
 
 
Then a stranger sits down as if he's right at home
Touches me and says I see you're traveling alone
And by the way son, you forgot to say amen
He says I guess there's something here I need to explain
I try to talk to everyone riding this train
Some of them listen, but most don't pay me no mind
 
And the train keeps rolling and the world keeps turning
All aboard, all aboard, everybody's gotta get on board
 
Take that woman with the frown sitting across the aisle
With her briefcase open nigh on ninety miles
She never even noticed that lake back at Horseshoe Bend
And that couple with the kids at the front of the car
Fussing all the way about some cookie jar
I'm gonna ask them what they saw at their journey's end
 
And there's a fellow I left sitting in the back
Keeps a smile on his face through a paper sack
Looking out the window but he can't see past the pane
 
And the train keeps rolling, and the world keeps turning
All aboard, All aboard, everybody's gotta get on board
 
Then the train slows down unexpectedly
As I raise my blind he slaps my knee
Saying this is my stop son but you won't be traveling alone
I look out my window to wave him goodbye
But there's nobody there, just a light in the sky
I lose my breath and my blood runs cold as stone
 
Then I feel the wheels turning underneath my feet
But life looks different from my window seat
Knowing where I'm going is better than where I've been
 
And the train keeps rolling and the world keeps turning
All aboard, all aboard
 
 
Everybody's gotta get on board
I can feel the wheels a turnin' underneath my feet
 
 
49.Where I Come From  by Alan Jackson
      Biography    Buy on Itunes
Well I was rollin' wheels and shiftin' gears
'Round that Jersey turnpike
 
When Barney stopped me with his gun
Ten minutes after midnight
Said sir you broke the limit in this rusty ol' truck
I don't know about that accent son
Just where did you come from
 
I said where I come from it's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch sitin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to Heaven, where I come from
 
Well I was south of Detroit city
I pulled in this country kitchen
To try their brand of barbecue
The sign said finger lickin'
 
Well I paid the tab and the lady asked me
How'd you like my biscuit
I'll be honest with you ma'am
It ain't like mama fixed it
 
'Cause where I come from it's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch pickin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to Heaven, where I come from
 
I was chasin' sun on 101
Somewhere around Ventura
I lost a universal joint and I had to use my finger
This tall lady stopped and asked
If I had plans for dinner
Said no thanks ma'am, back home
We like the girls that sing soprano
 
'Cause where I come from it's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch sitin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to Heaven, where I come from
 
Well I was headed home on 65
Somewhere around Kentucky
The CB rang for a bobtail rig
That's rollin' on like thunder
 
Well I answered him and he asked me
Aren't you from out in Tulsa?
No, but you might'a seen me there
I just dropped a load of salsa
 
Where I come from it's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch pickin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to Heaven, where I come from
 
Where I come from yeah it's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta back porch pickin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
And workin' hard to get to Heaven,
where I come from
 
Where I come fromYeah,
where I come from a lotta front porch sitin'
Starin' up at Heaven where I come from
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
Oh, where I come from
Where I come from
 
50. Life Is a Highway   by Tom Cochrane
        Biography    Buy on Itunes
Life's like a road that you travel on
When there's one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
 
There's a world outside every darkened door
Where blues won't haunt you anymore
Where the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won't hesitate break down the garden gate
There's not much time left today
 
Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long
 
Through all the cities and all these towns
It's in my blood and it's all around
I love you now like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hands
 
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver's lights
Knock me down get back up again
You're in my blood
I'm not a lonely man
There's no load I can't hold
Road so rough this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Tell 'em we're survivors
 
Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long
Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long
 
There was a distance between you and I
A misunderstanding once but now
We look it in the eye
 
There's no load, I can't hold
Road so rough this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Just tell 'em we're survivors
 
Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long
Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long
 
Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long
 
 
51.  The Battle of New Orleans   by Johnny Horton
        Biography    Buy on Itunes   
In 1814 we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson
down the mighty Mississip
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we caught the bloody British in a town in New Orleans
 
We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin'
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they begin to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico
(One-two-three, with a-one-two-three)
 
We looked down a river (Hut-two)
And we see'd the British come(Three-four)
And there must have been a hundred of 'em(Hut-two)
Beatin' on the drums(Three-four)
They stepped so high(Hut-two)
And they made their bugles ring(Three-four)
We stood by our cotton bales(Hut-two)
And didn't say a thing(Two-three-four)
 
We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin'
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they begin to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico
Old Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise(One-hut, two-three-four)If we didn't fire our muskets(One-hut, two-three-four)
'Till we looked 'em in the eye(One-hut, two-three-four)
 
 
We held our fire(Hut, two-three-four)
'Till we see'd their faces well
Then we opened up our squirrel guns
And really gave 'em - well we
 
Fired our guns and the British kept a-comin'
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they begin to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico
 
Yeah, they ran through the briars (One-hup-two)
And they ran through the brambles(Hup-two-three-four)
And they ran through the bushes(Hup-two)
Where the rabbit couldn't go(Hup-two-three-four)
They ran so fast (Hup-two)
That the hounds couldn't catch 'em(One-two-three-four)
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico(One-two, hup-two-three-four)
 
We fired our cannon 'til the barrel melted down
So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round
We filled his head with cannon balls, and powdered his behind
And when we touched the powder off the gator lost his mind
 
We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin'
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they begin to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico
 
 
 
52.  The Golden Age  by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour
         Biography    Buy on Itunes
     
I wished I lived in the Golden Age
Giving it up on the Broadway stage
Hang with the rats and smoke cigars
Just have a break with Frank and count the stars
Dressed to the nines, we've had too much
Shiny jewels, casino cash
Tapping feet, wanna take the lead
A trip back in time is all I need

(Oh! )

Sing it out loud, gonna get back honey
Sing it out loud, get away with me
Sing it out loud on a trip back, honey
Sing it out loud and let yourself free

(Whoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo)

I'm on my way, gonna make it big
Gonna make these songs for the chicks to dig
It's really hot and a little bit sour
We're getting your strength to the maximum power
Flying away from reality
Whatever ever happened to gravity?
I see it clear, a shooting star
And I'm really gonna sing it like da-da-da

Sing it out loud, gonna get back honey
Sing it out loud, get away with me
Sing it out loud on a trip back, honey
Sing it out loud and let yourself free

(Yeah! )

Sing it out loud, gonna get back honey
Sing it out loud, get away with me
Sing it out loud on a trip back, honey
Sing it out loud and let yourself free

(Ah! )
(Yeah yeah! )
(Ohhh! )

Silver screen on a rainy day
Sally Bowles in a cabaret
Shaking sticks, oh, what a show!
Fresh and jolly from tip to toe
Rambling down the boulevard
With a fly, a bird, and then a wooden heart
My mind is set, I walk the line
But I never really thought that it would feel this fine

(Yeah! )

Sing it out loud, gonna get back honey
Sing it out loud, get away with me
Sing it out loud on a trip back, honey
Sing it out loud and let yourself free!
(Yeah! )
(Whoooo! )
(Whoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo)
 
53. Everything that Glitters (Is Not Gold)   by Dan Seals
        Biography    Buy on Itunes     
Saw your picture on a poster in a cafe out in Phoenix
Guess you're still the sweetheart of the rodeo
As for me and little Casey, we still make the circuit
In a one horse trailer and a mobile home
And she still asks about you all the time
And I guess we never even cross your mind
 
But, Oh sometimes I think about you
And the way you used to ride out
In your rhinestones and your sequins
With the sunlight on your hair
And oh, the crowd will always love you
But as for me I've come to know
Everything that glitters is not gold
 
Well Old Red, he's gettin' older
And last Saturday he stumbled
But you know I just can't bear to let him go
Little Casey, she's still growing
And she started asking questions
And there's certain things a man just doesn't know
Her birthday came and you never even called
I guess we never cross your mind at all
 
 
But then sometimes I think about you
And the way you used to ride out
In your rhinestones and your sequins
With the sunlight on your hair
And oh, the crowd will always love you
But as for me I've come to know
Everything that glitters is not gold
 
  
Everybody said you'd make it big some day
And I guess that we were only in your way
But someday I'm sure you're gonna know the cost 
'Cause for everything you win, there's something lost
 
  
But, Oh sometimes I think about you
And the way you used to ride out
In your rhinestones and your sequins
With the sunlight on your hair
And oh, the crowd will always love you
But as for me I've come to know
Everything that glitters is not gold
Everything that glitters is not gold
 
 
54. Sweet Caroline   by Neil Diamond
Where it began,
I can't begin to knowin'
But then I know it's growing strong
Was in the spring
And spring became the summer
Who'd have believed you'd come along
Hands, touchin' hands
Reachin' out, touchin' me touchin' you
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
 
I've been inclined
To believe they never would
But now I, look at the night
And it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two
And when I hurt,
Hurtin' runs off my shoulders
How can I hurt when I'm with you
 
Warm, touchin' warm
Reachin' out, touchin' me touchin' you
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined, To believe they never would
 
Oh, no, no
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
Sweet Caroline, I believe they never could
Sweet Caroline

Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am goin' to
Silk suit, black tie
I don't need a reason why
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man
 
 
Gold watch, diamond ring

And cufflinks, stick pin
When I step out

They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man

Well I don't worry 'cause my wallet's fat
Black shades, white gloves
Lookin' sharp and lookin' for love
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man
