Track Name: Comfort Food
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
Track Name: Lay Down
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
Track Name: Feelin' Better
(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)
Track Name: North Country Outlaw
(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
Track Name: At Least I Ain't Cheatin'
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'
