    Cadillac Ranch

    There she sits, buddy, just a-gleaming in the sun
    There to greet a working man when his day is done
    Gonna pack my Pa and I'm gonna pack my aunt
    Gonna take 'em down to the Cadillac Ranch

    El Dorado fins, whitewalls and skirts
    Drives just like a little bit of heaven here on earth
    So when I die, buddy, throw my body in the back
    Take me to the junkyard in my Cadillac

    Cadillac, Cadillac
    Long and dark, shiny and black
    Open up them engines, let `em roar
    Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur

    James Dean in a Mercury `49
    Junior Johnson runnin' in the woods of Caroline
    Even Burt Reynolds in a black Trans Am
    Are gonna meet me down at the Cadillac Ranch

    Cadillac, Cadillac
    Long and dark, shiny and black
    Open up your engines, let 'em roar
    Tearin' up the highway like a big old dinosaur

    Hey little girlie in the blue jeans so tight
    Drivin' all alone in the Colorado night
    You're my last love, baby, you're my last chance
    Don't let `em take me down to the Cadillac Ranch

    Cadillac, Cadillac...
    Long and dark, shiny and black
    Open up them engines, let 'em roar
    Tearin' up the highway like a big old dinosaur

    Cadillac, Cadillac...
    Long and dark, shiny and black
    Open up them engines, let 'em roar
    Tearin' up the highway like a big old dinosaur

    I've Been Looking

    I've been lookin' for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
    I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping 'em
    I'm just looking for a love to stand the test of time
    I've been lookin' for someone to be all mine

    I had too much lonely
    I need a one and only
    Someone I can care about and call my own
    Faithful to tradition
    Without an intermission
    We'll still be together when the kids are grown

    I've been lookin for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
    I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping 'em
    I'm just lookin' for a love to stand the test of time
    I've been looking for someone to be all mine

    I've been lookin' for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
    I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping 'em
    I' m just lookin' for a love to stand the test of time
    I've been looking for someone to be all mine
    I've been looking for someone to be all mine
    I've been looking for someone to be all...

    I've been lookin' for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
    I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping 'em
    I've been lookin' for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
    I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping 'em

    Oh What A Love

    Oh what a love, that'll bind the wounds of a loss and heal my heart
    Oh what a love, to cast away the pain
    Oh what a love, that'll bear for me the cost of a brand new start
    Oh what a love, to let me begin again

    Oh what a light, that'll brighten up the corners of a lonely life
    Oh what a light, to cast away the rain
    Oh what a light, to remove the gloom of facin' the dark alone
    Oh what a light, I believe I can see again

    I remember the day
    We walked on the beach till sunset, then we sang
    And the songs we played were a promise of love that'll last beyond the grave

    Oh what a song, learned from the sea taught soley to the young
    Oh what a song, to cast away the rain
    Oh what a song, to break the bonds of fear and still the sound
    Oh what a song, I believe I can sing again

    I remember the day
    We met at a place of hope, I took what you gave
    And the words we'd say were a promise of love that'll honor beyond the grave

    Oh what a love, that'll bind the wounds of a loss and heal my heart
    Oh what a love, to cast away the pain
    Oh what a love, that'll bear for me the cost of a brand new start
    Oh what a love, to let me begin again
    Oh what a love
    Oh what a light
    Oh what a song

    Workin' Man

    Sittin' alone in the dark
    Wastin' my time in a park
    'Cause I've got nowhere to go
    Had me a job 'til the market fell out
    Tried hard to borrow but there was no help
    Now I've got nowhere to go
    I need a job for these two hands
    I'm a workin' man
    With nowhere to go

    One last look at my land
    Auctioneer with his gavel in hand
    And he says "it's got to go"
    Worked this piece all my life
    It broke my heart and it took my wife
    Now I've got nothing to show
    I need a job for these two hands
    I'm a workin' man
    With nowhere to go

    Wandered aimless in the city
    With my dirt workin' boots and my old straw hat in hand
    Singing a song by Woody Guthrie
    This land is your land but it ain't my land
    I'm a workin' man, with nowhere to go

    I was born to the sunrise
    Breaking back all day
    Now I've got something to say
    I am broke, but not broken
    And I am not alone
    'cause there's a lot of folks
    With nowhere to go

    Are they ever gonna understand?
    You can't leave a workin' man
    With nowhere to go
    Are they ever gonna understand?
    You can't leave a workin' man
    With nowhere to go
    Nowhere to go
    Nowhere to go

    I Love Only You

    I like to drink my beer
    Spend time with the boys
    After work, to down a few
    Is something I enjoy
    And sometimes I stay out too late
    Yes, I know it's true
    But I love only you

    And I like to take life easy
    Work out in the yard
    Sleep late on the weekends
    After an all-night game of cards
    And drivin' my old Chevy
    On Sunday afternoon
    But I love only you

    And I like my old guitar
    And I'd like to be a star and shine on you
    And I'd like to write a song
    The whole world could sing along
    About you

    I love only you
    And I like my old guitar
    And I'd like to be a star and shine on you
    And I'd like to write a song
    The whole world could sing along
    About you

    I like my old memories
    The girls I used to know
    Some of them still have a place
    Where my mind likes to go
    Of all the ones I've cared for
    Lord knows there's been a few
    I love only you
    Oh, honey, I love only you

    Fishin' In The Dark

    Lazy yellow moon comin' up tonight
    shinin' through the trees
    Crickets are singin' and the lightning bugs
    are floatin' on the breeze
    Baby get ready

    Across the field where the creek turns back by the ole stump road
    I'm gonna take you to a special place that nobody knows
    Baby get ready
    Ooooo Ooooo

    You and me going fishin' in the dark
    Lying on our backs and counting the stars
    Where the cool grass grows
    Down by the river in the full moon light
    We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night
    Just movin' slow
    Stayin' the whole night through, it feels so good to be with you

    Spring is almost over and the summer's come
    And the days are gettin' long
    Waited all winter for the time to be right just to take you along
    Baby get ready

    And it don't matter if we sit forever and the fish don't bite
    We'll jump in the river and cool ourselves from the heat of the night
    Baby get ready
    Ooooo Ooooo

    You and me going fishin' in the dark
    Lying on our backs and counting the stars
    Where the cool grass grows
    Down by the river in the full moon light
    We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night
    Just movin' slow

    Stayin' the whole night thru, it feels so good to be with
    You and me going fishin' in the dark
    Lying on our backs and counting the stars
    Where the cool grass grows
    Down by the river in the full moon light
    We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night
    Just movin' slow
    Stayin' the whole night thru, it feels so good to be with you

    Baby's Got a Hold On Me

    Sittin' on the front porch tryin' to keep still
    Baby's lookin' finer than a fifty dollar bill
    Pretty blue eyes and it isn't hard to see
    That baby's got a hold on me

    Long blond hair down the middle of her back
    She's got the keys to her daddy's Cadillac
    Got every little thing that I'm ever gonna need
    Baby's got a hold on me

    Got a hold on, got a hold on me
    Got a hold on, baby's got a hold on me

    We've got a full tank of gas, lookin' for a thrill
    A three day weekend, lot of time to kill
    Put the top down but we're never gonna freeze
    'Cause baby's got a hold on me

    Got a hold on, got a hold on me
    Got a hold on, baby's got a hold on me
    Hold on.......

    Well, the full moon's shinin' on a Carolina night
    Drivin' my girl across the interstate line
    Got a preacher waitin' and that's how it's gonna be
    'Cause baby's got a hold on me

    Got a hold on, got a hold on me
    Got a hold on, baby's got a hold on me

    Got a hold on, got a hold on
    Got a hold on, baby's got a hold on me
    Baby's got a hold on me
    Baby's got a hold on me
    Baby's got a hold on me

    Face On The Cutting Room Floor

    She's history
    No one would give her a star on the walk
    She'd have a hundred if pillows could talk
    Where have I seen her before
    She's the face on the cutting room floor

    It's no mystery
    Acting in school at the tenderest age
    Lit up the room when she stepped on the stage
    Came to L.A. for some more
    She's the face on the cutting room floor

    She had visions of contracts
    And thousands of people in line
    To see her
    Knocking on door after door
    After all of this time
    She's not sure

    Up in Hollywood
    Stayed with an agent she met in a bar
    Laughed when he told her he'd make her a star
    Where had she heard that before
    She's the face on the cutting room floor

    One night he told her that she'd never get anywhere
    In her clothes
    That's what it takes to play movieland musical chairs
    Now she knows

    Goodbye, Hollywood
    Leaving tonight on the 2:30 'hound
    Sunrise on Sunset she won't be around
    But they'll replace her with so many more
    She's the face on the cutting room floor
    Oh, she's the face on the cutting room floor
    Poor little face on the cutting room floor
    Face on the cutting room floor

    Down That Road Tonight

    Seems like lately we're losin' touch
    Work to hard and worry too much
    I think it's time for me and you
    To get back to what we used to do
    We'd steal away on a Saturday night
    Meet in the field when the time was right
    Just us two and a starry sky
    Felt like paradise

    I said ooh baby goin' down that road tonight
    I said it's too crazy need to hold each other tight
    Thinkin' maybe the moon stills shines as bright
    Like it did back then, it'll shine again
    Down that road tonight

    Remember all the songs that we used to know
    Dancin' in the dark to the radio
    Lost in the rhythm, kickin' up some heat
    The memories are still so sweet
    Time's gone by but it's plain to see
    I still love you and you still love me
    Let's shake these troubles put 'em all aside
    C'mon we're gonna take that ride

    I said ooh baby goin' down that road tonight
    I said it's too crazy need to hold each other tight
    Thinkin' maybe the moon stills shines as bright
    Like it did back then, it'll shine again
    Down that road tonight
    Down that road

    Down that road

    Home Again In My Heart

    One in a million in a lonely town
    Two hundred people trying to keep me down
    I've taken all I can, I ain't lookin' back
    Small town boy in a back yard lot
    Can't make a living with the luck I've got
    I'm gonna leave it all, I ain't looking back

    That's the way I remember
    It seemed to me when I was young
    But I can still see the leaves slowly fall to the ground
    And the snow on the trees as the winter comes down
    Still I go home again in my heart

    My father worked hard on the railroad tracks
    Thirty-seven years cut across his back
    He gave it all he had for what he believed
    Like every other kid that came before
    I grew up believing there was something more
    and I still believe, I still believe

    That's the way I remember
    It seemed to me when I was young
    But I can still see the lightning on a warm summer night
    And the rain on the window when I close my eyes
    I can still hear us laughing on the front porch in the dark

    There are days when I know I've traveled so far
    That I'll never find the road leading back to the start
    Still I go home again in my heart
    Still I go home again in my heart
    In my heart
    In my heart
