Track Name: R.V.
Marc and me sitting by the dock
Having a few beers and whiskey shots
Looking at the stars, that's where we are at 45 now

At one point we looked at each other
The kids are grown, let's get a band together
And go tour this country Inside out

We always dreamed of owning our RVs
To see this great American country
Going around, from city to city
Playing our songs and meeting you all

Having a ball in this American country
Having a ball in this great American country

Load up the RVs, check that tire pressure
Gas tank, full tank
And now we're ready to head out

We can't wait, to ride all summer
And to see all you cute ladies
With your thigh high little skirts

Having a ball in this American country
Having a ball in this great American country

How cool is this, riding miles and miles
From the Rockies to the valleys
From the East coast to the West
I woke up this morning, walked to the nearest diner
Still hung over, from the party we had just last night

Back at home, sittin' by the dock
Having those beers and whiskey shots again
We realize how lucky we are

Once again we looked at each other
Can't stand being home much longer
Let's load the gear and head out back again

Having a ball in this American country
Having a ball in this great American country
Track Name: The only road
Driving through the sleet and rain
I didn't know if I would see you again
Dark and dangerous, slippery and wet
You never know what you're gonna get

Mile after mile I drive all night
To see things straight, to get it right
The road I follow will be the one
To get things steady
To get things done

This is the only road
The road I know
The road to follow
This is the only road
The road I know
The road to go

Riding down the lost highway
Wind flowing through my hair
Find my way to the byway
No need to think, no need to care

Open motel on the right
It's time to stop before the night
Time to chill and relax
Time to dream, take off, take flight !

This is the only road
The road I know
The road to follow
This is the only road
The road I know
The road to grow

Drive baby drive, drive all night, drive forever
Drive baby drive, for the rest of my life, hands on the wheel
Roll on the highway, roll down the highway
We're goin', we're goin', Oh yeah !!

This is the only road
The road I know
The road to follow
This is the only road
The road I know
The road to grow

This is the only road
The road I know
The road to follow
This is the only road
The road I know
The road to grow
Track Name: Give me some lovin'
It’s Friday night and I feel alright
I want to go out and play
I’m feelin’ good like I know that I should
Better than on Monday
Tell me that you feel it
I know that you feel it

Baby, give me some lovin’
Good times, every day
Sunshine, and some sweet drinkin’
Over and over again

It’s Saturday night and the world is mine
I’m feelin’ like it’s been so long
If you’re feelin’ it right, you’ll be mine tonight
I guarantee you can’t go wrong
Tell me that you feel it
I know that you feel it

Baby, give me some lovin’
Good times, every day
Sunshine, and some sweet drinkin’
Over and over again

Lovin’ every minute of every day
Lovin’ every minute now
Lovin’ every minute
I’m 45 and I’m still going strong
I’m 45 and I’m still going on
I’m gonna fly ‘till the sun is gone, fly on !

The weekend’s here and I’m flying high
I got you on my mind
I got your body and I got your soul
Gotta get you into mine
Tell me that you feel it
I know that you feel it

Baby, give me some lovin’
Good times, every day
Sunshine, and some sweet drinkin’
Over and over again
Track Name: John
John lost his job, early November
And the sight of the plant's lights closed forever
It tore his heart apart

Holidays, just around the corner
How's he gonna do
To get his family through this winter

One cold night, sittin' on the porch
Whiskey bottle in one hand
And a shotgun in the other

He looked up to the sky
Saw a flying star passing by
Dropped his shotgun, ran to the house
And looked into his daughter's eyes

Baby girl I promise you
I'll never do anything like this again
Baby girl I promise you
We'll get through these hard times once again

Cause these hard-working men and women
Get through the hard times
And all these hard working folks
Are the ones we should look up to

Cause these hard-working men and women
Get through the hard times
And all these hard working folks
Are the ones we should look up to

Monday morning, John drove down the Main street
And the place now looks like a ghost town

Everybody's strugglin' to keep their heads above the water
Since the town's main job provider has shut down

Baby girl I promise you
We'll get through these hard times once again
Baby girl I promise you
This town will get back on it's feet again
Chorus
Chorus
They all have to pull together
To get this great town better
And to leave to their children
A place to raise their own
Track Name: Our story
Our Story started out with me in high school
Oh it was a school from hell
Playing sports, kissing girls, picking up a guitar
Oh no this will not end so well.....

Marc and I started playing guitar together
Back in 1985
Back then he was a real mother fucker
He would always leave me behind

Back in '85
Those were the times
Back in '85
Na na na na......

Rick and I met in 1989
Long hair and mullets strong
We would start a top 40 band playing the songs
Of the Beatles, Led Zep and Tom Jones

Marc and I working in the pouring rain
Ricky’s sittin’ sippin’ a beer
If it wasn’t for that golden voice of his
He would have to run in fear

Back in '89
Those were the times
Back in '89
Na na na na......

Marc and I sippin’ on a cold Bud light
Ricky’s downing Tennessee whiskey
Sooner or later he’ll start a fight
Then he’ll trip on Rocky

Na na na na......

2016
We’re living a dream
