1st verse: Gotta go somewhere, this I know
There's a new world waitin' down the road
Time to get movin' fore I go insane
All aboard the Honky Tonk Train.

Chorus: Honky Tonk Train, whoo whoo, Honky Tonk Train
Pour on the country and the rock and roll
Build a head of steam and here we go
Flyin' high, ridin'on the Honky Tonk Train.

The band's warmin' up in the dinin' car
It's party time shine or rain
All aboard the Honky Tonk Train.

From north MS to south Alabam
We got barbecue and homemade wine
Everybody's feelin' fine.

Track Name: Talk of the Town
"Talk of the Town"

1st verse: I know a girl with eyes of blue
Her name is Josie Lynn and she is so beautiful
When she shows up everybody looks
She's the talk of the town.

2nd verse: She gets a wild hair every now and then
Wants to go dancin' runnin' with the wind
When she's like that it's hard to slow her down
She's the talk of the town.

Chorus: It's a small world, don't take long
Before you know it's already home
Right or wrong word gets around
You're the talk of the town.

(TA)

3rd verse: I'm just a guy livin' my life
Never thought twice of takin' a wife
But when we kissed the walls came down
Now we're the talk of the town.

4th verse: We walk hand in hand and everybody stares
We're so in love, we don't care
Some folks smile, some of them frown
We're the talk of the town.

(Chorus)

Track Name: Next Stop Nashville
"Next Stop Nashville"

The first stage I ever sang on
Was in a Baptist church out on a back road
A preacher's son at the age of 7
A blessing from Hank and a gift from heaven
Country was the road I was told to take
Now it's time to take a leap of faith

Next stop Nashville
I'm on my way
Next stop Nashville
That's what I say
Once I make it there, I'm gonna stay
Next stop Nashville.

People come from everywhere
With a dream on the wings of a prayer
Writin' them songs and singin' together
Makin' the world a little bit better
Goodbye to my Mississippi home
Tennessee's the place where I belong!

(Chorus)

Bridge: Got a hillbilly heart and an old guitar
One day gonna be a star in Nashville

(Chorus)

Track Name: Solid Country Gold
"Solid Country Gold"

1st verse: When I was young listenin'to the radio
Singin' along to good ole country songs
Every day on my way home
Heard old Hank moan the blues
Old George Jones filling shoes
Tanya Tucker singing - Won't you Love me like you used to

These are the songs that were known to give you chills
These are the boots we need to fill

Chorus: Solid country gold
Somethin we need to
Keep passin'on
Reachin' back to
Solid Country Gold
Solid Country Gold.

Solid Country Gold

2nd verse: They say Nashville's lost it's heart and soul
Nothin' real about it anymore
Time to even up the score
I can feel it in my bones
When I sing it in my song
Stand up, sing along, while I bring you home.

(Chorus)

Bridge: Stick to the basics
Write a simple song
Make them feel what you feel
Sing 'em back home

(Chorus)

Solid Country Gold
Solid Country Gold

Tag: Like Conway Twitty and Doug Stone
Solid Country Gold

When I was young listenin'to the radio
Singin' along to good ole country songs
Every day on my way home

Track Name: Please Pretend You Know Me
"Please Pretend You Know Me"

1st verse: I was mindin' my own business
She planted a kiss right on my lips
I said to myself, "What is this?"
She looked at the door and kissed me some more

You should have seen the look on her face
When he walked in like he owned the place

Chorus: She said, "Please pretend you know me,
Do me a favor and kiss me again.
Please pretend you know me
More than a friend.

Please pretend you know me
Don't want to look like I'm here all alone
Please pretend you know me
Til he's gone."

2nd verse: When he didn't leave, immediately
I knew I was in trouble
I found myself a different girl
And kissed her on the double

You should have seen the look in her eyes
When I smiled, apologized and said,

Chorus: Please pretend you know me
Do me a favor and kiss me again
Please pretend you know me
More than a friend.

Please pretend you know me
I don't want to look like I'm here all alone
Please pretend you know me
Til she's gone.

Br: She said, "Don't worry, baby, I don't mind
As a matter of fact, you're right on time!"

(Guitar Break)

Chorus: Please pretend you know me
Do me a favor and kiss me again
Please pretend you know me
More than a friend.

Please pretend you know me,
I don't want to spend another night alone
Please pretend you know me
And take me home.

Tag: Take me home, take me home.

Track Name: My Better Half
"My Better Half"

Verse 1:
I’m a lucky man and I been blessed
To wake up every morning with you in my bed
I never thought I’d meet a woman that makes me feel the way you do
Since the the day we met I been head over heels for you


Chorus:
Baby you are my shelter from the storm
My bible on Sunday and the breeze on my front porch
Baby you are my one and only love and I know it’s gonna last
Baby you, you’re my better half

Verse 2:
Late at night gets lonely when you’re on your own
No one to talk to and make this house a home
So I prayed and here you come running into these loving arms
I'm not me without you, baby, we're one.

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Without you feels so wrong
Like a whippoorwill on a summer night that has no song

(Chorus)

Track Name: Mississippi Pride
"Mississippi Pride"

You can see it in my smile
Hear it in my song
I'd walk a country mile
To be where I belong
When the Delta moon is on the rise
And crickets sing a lullaby
It fills my heart with Mississippi pride

Mississippi pride
Comes from deep inside
Burning in my soul
Like a flame that won’t die
Mississippi pride
All of my life
I’ve been blessed with
Mississippi pride

Down in Dixieland
That’s the place for me
Where love and laughter live
With friends and family
The smell of Jasmine in the air
Popcorn at the County Fair
It’s bona fide
Mississippi pride

Hey, Hey
It’s the Mississippi way
It’s bona fide
Mississippi pride

Track Name: Stone Cold Rolling Stone
"Stone Cold Rolling Stone"

1st verse: I been livin' on the road
From the backside of nowhere to Tupelo
Hammer down like a runaway train
With a gypsy soul, that's all I know
I'm a stone cold rollin' stone

2nd verse: Love and leave them is my name
You fall for me, baby, that's a heartache
Wedding bells will never be for a man like me
Baby, can't you see
I'm a stone cold rollin' stone

Chorus: I never been the one to settle down
This life has a got a hold of me right now
Gonna keep on keepin' on
I'm a stone cold rollin' stone

3rd verse: I fought the law but this time I won
Tried to lock me up on a bogus bench warrant
You can't see the judge til Monday mornin'
You're gonna miss your show, little did they know

4th verse: I got my license and cleared my name
Made my show and rocked the stage
Yeah, it's your fault, Mr. Law Dawg
For your crooked ways, so I got away
I'm a stone cold rollin' stone.

(Chorus)

Tag: I'm a stone cold rollin' stone

Track Name: Southern Belle
"Southern Belle"

1st verse: I knew she was heaven-sent
When I was introduced by my best friend
An angel in disguise
The kind of woman I want in my life
She takes my breath when she walks
And I'm all ears when she talks
She gives me the thrill of a kid
She's a firefly that I just caught.

Chorus: She was raised just like me
Country as a turnip green
Aw man, she's a sight to see
And when she speaks it's the melody of Dixie
She's into boots and jeans
Mud on the tires and cuddling
She ain't no fairytale
She's my Southern Belle.

2nd verse: All women ain't made like this
With a touch of heaven and a Boone's Farm kiss
Loves ridin' backroads
The kind of woman that'll make you write her a song
Heaven knows, she ain't perfect
She has her days when she's fussin' and cussin'
But she's an angel
When she's lovin'.

(Chorus)

Bridge: She will make you whole
When you put that ring on
She will stick by you
Whether you're right or wrong

(Chorus)

Track Name: Too Far Gone
"Too Far Gone"

Time is up
My mind has changed
The love we had
Can't get back again
I tried and tried
To find my way home
But ain't no goin' back
I'm too far gone.

Too far gone
Like a runaway
Too far down the road
To look back at yesterday
Learn to let it go
Keep rollin' on
Some things you just can't change
They're too far gone.

(TA)

She lived her life
Like a mystery
On the gypsy highway
Wild and free
Pills and whiskey
Her heart for a song
She don't even miss me
She's too far gone.

(Chorus)

Like grandma said, "Leave well-enough alone"
No regrets, can't keep holdin' on

(Chorus)
