Comfort Food 02:22
There's a lot of things that get people feelin down Your gal's got another in another town Maybe grandpa's only got a few days to live You're thinkin 'am I even qualified to raise these kids?' When life's little problems start getting to you, It sure makes a big difference what you choose to do Lots of people find different ways to cope When life is naggin and you're grasping at the end of your rope For some folks it's drinkin, some just sleep Some they pray their lord their soul to keep I don't give a damn what you choose to do For me, some comfort food'll chase away those blues (Chorus) Like pickled turkey gizzards and salted pickled eggs They're a whole lot better than creme brulee You need a pork hock and a whiskey shot to wash it away Man, everything will be ok Well, a woman's kind of comfort food is cold ice cream It comes in every flavor that you've ever seen I prefer vinegar and warm Jim Beam I'm gonna stick with what I know really works for me So if your sleepin and you're prayin ain't workin for you, Just be a man, and try a pickled egg or 2 (Chorus) Because pickled turkey gizzards and salted pickled eggs They're a whole lot better than creme brulee You need a pork hock and a whiskey shot to wash it away Man, everything will be ok I said everything will be ok

Lay Down 03:44
You're a pretty little thing And I've told you many times I couldn't wait to win you, girl Your body and your mind Now you say I love you And you mean it every time Lay down already, girl, before I lose my mind (Chorus) Lay down baby, right here under me Don't you waste one second thinkin about that fool in Tennessee I'm your daddy, I'm your only guy, your man Lovin you forever girl, is all that I've got planned That first night we hit the hot spots You sipped all that wine I drank bourbon whiskey girl, but not too much that time We spent the night together and we roamed around this town When it came time to bring you home girl, I didn't let you down And I.... (Chorus) Layed down baby, right there under you You didn't waste no time, you just did those things you'd been waiting all night to do I said I'm your daddy, I'm your only guy, your man Lovin you that evening, girl, that was all that I had planned A little time has come and gone between that night and now There's good and bad, but we don't have a reason to quit now I see us old and frail and gray, still talkin about the times When we were young and dumb and full of the love that had us blind And I said.... (Chorus) Lay down baby, right here under me Don't you waste one second thinkin about that fool in Tennessee I'm your daddy, I'm your only guy, your man Lovin you forever girl, is all that I've got planned And I said Lay down baby, right here under me I'm the same ol' boy you said you'd love for eternity I'm your daddy, I'm your only guy, your man Lovin you forever girl Is all that I've got planned

(Chorus) I'm feelin better every day I made up my mind that it's about damn time I got back with them boys and played Anymore downtime and I'll go out of mind I'm just sittin by the window watching time pass by And I just ain't cut out for doin nothing all day Well I've gotta get well, I know that much But nobody told me it would be this tough Waitin on my human shell to catch up with my brain Somebody bring me a beer, bring me some smoke Let's hang around the porch and tell some jokes Get to feelin better little by little, til it's time to fly On down the road in the driver's seat Watching yellow lines, not a tv screen There's nothing on anyways, just a bunch of bad news I'd rather play another gig and break my back, Filling up the trailer with Marshall stacks Or just workin til the day I can afford for that to come true (Chorus) I'm feelin better every day I made up my mind that it's about damn time I got back with them boys and played Anymore downtime and I'll go out of mind I'm just sittin by the window watching time pass by And I just ain't cut out for doin nothing all day (Fiddle solo) (Chorus)

(Chorus) It ain't as lonely as you'd think Being a north country outlaw I've got a few brothers and sisters up here Who feel the way I do I used to feel alone, but then I was shown That I should just do what comes natural It ain't as lonely as you'd think Being a north country outlaw Well it's true, I didn't grow up in Dixie I never saw a cotton field til I was 25 Though I don't feel far from 'em And I don't believe it matters if your creeks are red Or if in winter your lakes are frozen I could've been from anywhere in this world That kind of thing can't be chosen Chorus) It ain't as lonely as you'd think Being a north country outlaw I've got a few brothers and sisters up here Who feel the way I do I ain't flying any flag, there ain't a need to brag I'm just doing what comes natural It ain't as lonely as you'd think Being a north country outlaw (Banjo) If you like the music I do, go on and raise your drink George Jones showed me how a song could be sung And I learned a lot from the Hanks There's some folks who might call me a yank, but This ain't no Civil War and don't you even think That this music ain't runnin through my veins Chorus) It ain't as lonely as you'd think Being a north country outlaw I've got a few brothers and sisters up here Who feel the way I do I used to feel alone, but then I was shown That I should just do what comes natural It ain't as lonely as you'd think Being a north country outlaw I ain't flying any flag, there ain't a need to brag I'm just doing what comes natural It ain't as lonely as you'd think Being a north country outlaw

Lately I'm running on empty There ain't much but fumes left in my tank All throughout my life, anytime a thing went wrong I'd just go out and have a drink You tell me that ain't what I need But I know myself, and I think it is I'll just call up some of my damn good friends And we'll go out and raise some hell like a bunch of kids (Pre-chorus) And whether or not you stay with me That's the kind of life that I'll be leading It's true I've got a thirst, but i could've done you worse I may be drunk, but at least I ain't cheatin' (Chorus) I may be drunk, at least I ain't cheatin' I'm not the kind of guy to fool around You won't find no panties in my car, no not at all The worst I'll do is stumble, maybe fall I really think that we have something here If I'm wrong then I guess you'll be leaving I'm not a perfect man, honey don't you understand I may be drunk, but at least I ain't cheatin' (Fiddle) Your sweet face is something that I adore Even when I'm looking through a haze You shouldn't be surprised when I don't apologize I told you, girl, i ain't never gonna change my ways (Pre-Chorus) And whether or not you stay with me That's still the kind of life that I'll be leading But no matter what I do, honey I won't be untrue I may be drunk, at least I ain't cheatin' (Chorus) I may be a drunk, but at least I ain't cheatin' I'm not the kind of guy to fool around You won't find no panties in my car, no not a bra The worst I'll do is stumble, maybe fall I really think that we have something here If I'm wrong then I guess you'll be leaving I'm not a perfect man, honey don't you understand I may be drunk, but at least I ain't cheatin' It's true I've got a thirst, but i could've done you worse I may be drunk, but at least Iain't cheatin'
