Track Name: Ridin' The Range
Feelin' Fine

Well I know you wanna kill for what I had last summer
When daddy is away you just hide beneath the covers
Love to see my mama in a long stretch hummer
We only go to town when we need more rubbers

We're ridin' the range
Ridin' the range
Back at the ranch
Back in the saddle
Ridin' the range

Ridin' the range on my big black stud
Holdin' my baby just for love
All the way home steady she goes
When she gets goin' god only knows

We're ridin' the range
Ridin' the range
Back at the ranch
Back in the saddle
Ridin' the range

Ridin' the range
Ridin' the range
Back at the ranch
Unleashed and uncaged
Ridin' the range

Yeah we're ridin' the range
Ridin' the range
Back at the Ranch
Love on the chase

Ridin' the range
Ridin' the range
Ridin' the range
Track Name: Finding True Love On TV Is Tough
I know what you want
Man, you gotta reach out and grab it
I can't hold your hand the way I once could
But it don't matter now
That I won't be there when you fall
You might get the feelin'
To run sometimes

But finding true love on TV is tough
Yeah finding true love on TV is tough

Can't believe I'm here
Now I'm just in a rut
Never thought I'd be so close to it all
All you gotta do
Is dream your little dream
As long as you don't stop
Your little dream will come true

But finding true love on TV is tough
Yeah finding true love on TV is tough

So when you know the place
And you're ready to come back
You can pick it up
Just like falling off a bike
So when you feel like hope is gone
Just reinforce with faith
Dream your little dream
Dream on 'til your dream comes true

But finding true love on TV is tough
Yeah finding true love on TV is tough
Yeah finding true love on TV is tough
Yeah finding true love on TV is tough
Track Name: Hot For You
I'm hot for you
I can't cool down
You get me off
When we throw down

So hot for you
When you're on me
You got the lock
That fits my key

Callin' me baby
Call me crazy in love
So hot for you
I can't get enough

You came along
Shook me up
Rocked my world
Filled my cup

Yeah callin' me baby
Call me crazy in love
So hot for you
I can't get enough

I'm hot for you
Incessantly
Another love
Casualty

You callin' me baby
Call me crazy in love
So hot for you
I can't get enough

So hot for you
Can't hide my love
Up all night
So hot for you
I need your heat
Immediately

I'm hot for you
It's all I know
What you do to me
Stirs my soul

My baby's got my guitar
She's all I need
She takes me there
At lightning speed

Callin' me baby
Call me crazy in love
So hot for you
I can't get enough

Yeah callin' me baby
Call me crazy in love
So hot for you
I can't get enough
Track Name: Last Minute Villains - Song For You (Acoustic)
Oh my land is like a wild goose
Wanders all around everywhere
Trembles and it shakes 'til every tree is loose
It rolls the meadows and it rolls the nails

So take me down to your dance floor
I won't mind the people when they stare
Paint a different color on your front door
And tomorrow we will still be there

He built a ship to sing a song to
It sails the rivers and it sails the tide
Some of my friends don't know who they belong to
Some can't get a single thing to work inside

So take me down to your dance floor
I won't mind the people when they stare
Paint a different color on your front door
And tomorrow we will still be there

I loved you everyday, now I'm leavin'
I can see the sorrow in your eyes
Hope you know a lot more than you're believin'
Just so the sun don't hurt you when you cry

Oh, take me down to your dance floor
I won't mind the people when they stare
Paint a different color on your front door
And tomorrow we may still be there
And tomorrow we may still be there
Track Name: Messin' My Heart Around
Don't go messin' my heart around
Or you won't get what's comin' to you
Don't go messin' my heart around
And I'll give you what you want too
Just be good to me girl and listen
And maybe we won't fall apart
If there's one thing I know for sure
My baby's got a hold of my heart

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, honey

So if you don't stop climbin' my walls
And you don't stop bringin' me down
I'm gonna kick you to the curb my friend
And that'll be your happy ending

Don't go messin' my heart around
The road we're on is really rough
Don't go messin' my heart around
We got the strongest kind of love

Don't go messin' my heart around
When you think you're really somethin' else
Don't go messin' my heart around
And keep your feelings to yourself
Better not baby fall apart
Or we won't get where we need to be
If there's one thing I know for sure
My baby she's a lovin' me

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, honey

So if you don't stop climbin' my walls
And you don't stop bringin' me down
I'm gonna kick you to the curb my friend
And that'll be your happy ending

Don't go messin' my heart around
The road we're on is really rough
Don't go messin' my heart around
We got the strongest kind of love

Better not baby fall apart
Baby I'm warnin' you
Don't go messin' my heart around
You got the one you'll never lose

Don't go messin' my heart around
Don't wanna be no silhouette
Stick with me baby you will see
You ain't seen nothin' yet
Better not run and you better gimme my love
And maybe baby I'll give it back

If there's one thing I know for sure
If there's one thing I know for sure
If there's one thing I know for sure
I'm with you and that's a fact, Jack
Track Name: You Got A Problem
Yer gonna have to try harder than that
To get me to say yes
I've been around and I know
A thing or two about a thing or two
And I'm no fool for you now

Well, I don't know just what you tell the other guys
And I'm sure that if you ever had a pack of lies
Ho, ho, ho

Well, I don't know just what you're lookin' for
And I'm not sure just what you're on

But I can tell you I know
By the way you hide your blow
You got a problem and I
Won't be around for the next time
Track Name: Wagon Wheel
Well I'm headed down south to the land of the pines
Thumbin' my way into North Caroline
Starin' up the road
Pray to God I see headlights

Well I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Pickin' me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I'm a hopin' for Raleigh
I can see my baby tonight

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey mama rock me
Yeah rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me

Well I'm runnin' from the cold up in New England
I was born to be a fiddler in an old-time string band
My baby plays the guitar
I pick the banjo now

Oh North country winters keep a gettin' me now
Lost my money playin' poker so I had to up and leave
But I ain't a turnin' back
Or livin' that old life no more

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey mama rock me
Yeah rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me

Now I'm walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
I caught a trucker out of Philly
Had a nice long toke
But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee

And I gotta get a move on fit for the sun
I hear my baby callin' my name
And I know that she's the only one
And if I die in Raleigh
At least I will die free

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey mama rock me
Yeah rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me
Track Name: Poison Of Your Ways
The saddest part of leaving you
Is knowing fully we are through
Can't believe it's been so long
Maybe you will hear my song

The saddest part of leaving you
Is knowing fully we are through
Can't believe it's been so long
Maybe you will hear my song

You got me bitten by
The the poison of your ways
And now I can't see how
I've seen so many days

Rolling along it's day April
Sun in sky, wind begins to spill
The saddest part of leaving you
Is knowing fully we are through

Rolling along it's day April
Sun in sky, wind begins to spill
Can't believe it's been so long
Maybe you will hear my song

You got me smitten by
The poison of your ways
And now I can't see how
I've seen so many days

You got me bitten by
The poison of your ways
And now I can't see how
I've seen so many days

The saddest part of leaving you
Is knowing fully we are through
Rolling along it's day April
Sun in sky, wind begins to spill

Can't believe it's been so long
Maybe you will hear my song
The saddest part of leaving you
Is knowing fully we are through

You got me bitten by 
The poison of your ways
And now I can't see how
I've seen so many days

You got me bitten by
The poison of your ways
And we've tried everything
Still seen so many days
Track Name: Pants Off-Dance Off
Freeze, freeze everybody stop
Here I come to make your pistol pop
Stay, stay now everybody leave
Won't you go hide
So I can, seek

Please, please, tease, tease
But don't leave me
We're gonna turn it up now

And take those pants off
So we can have a dance off
Yeah I want those pants off-dance off

Who are we
To have had enough
I don't think so I can still feel my thumb
Some say it takes us a little more
Well doesn't it, now

Just take those pants off
So we can have a dance off
Yeah I want those pants off-dance off

There's no need to be lonely
There's no camera around
It's like nobody's watchin'
There's no need to be lonely
Audio may be on
Makin' our own soundtrack of love

So take those pants off
So we can have a dance off
Yeah I want those pants off-dance off

When your pants hit the floor I'm comin' for more
When your pants hit the floor I'm comin' for more

So take those pants off
There's gonna be a dance off
Yeah I want those pants gone-dance off
Track Name: Troubadour
I still feel 25 most of the time
I still raise a little Cain with the boys
Honky tonks and pretty women
Lord, I'm still right there with 'em
Singing above the crowd and the noise

Sometimes I feel like Jesse James
Still trying to make a name
Knowing nothing's gonna change what I am
I was a young troubadour, when I rode in on a song
I'll be an old troubadour, when I'm gone

Well, the truth about a mirror
Is that damned old mirror
Don't really tell the whole truth
It don't show what's deep inside
Or read between the lines
And it's really no reflection of my youth

Sometimes I feel like Jesse James
Still trying to make a name
Knowing nothing's gonna change what I am
I was a young troubadour, when I rode in on a song
I'll be an old troubadour, when I'm gone

I was a young troubadour, when I rode in on a song
And I'll be an old troubadour, when I'm gone
I'll be an old troubadour, when I'm gone
