1. White Trash Millionaire (3:20)
I've got a Trans-Am in primer paint
Nobody taught me, I was born this way
No silver spoon to feed a 401K
On Bourbon Street, the girls all scream
They callin' out my name

[Chorus:]
I wanna be a white trash millionaire
Ain't got much and I don't care
Count your cash and kiss my ass
This whole damn world gonna know I been here
I got two zig-zags and you know I'll share
I'm everyone from nowhere
White trash
White trash
White trash millionaire

Some got a castle of Mercedes Benz
Big time appointments
And all their fake friends
So tell me s'that as good as it gets
On the couch on the front porch
We're all smoking left-handed cigarettes

[Chorus:]
I wanna be a white trash millionaire
Ain't got much and I don't care
Count your cash and kiss my ass
This whole damn world gonna know I been here
I got two zig-zags and you know I'll share
I'm everyone from nowhere
White trash
White trash
White trash millionaire

[Guitar Solo]

Well
Get 'em up, get 'em up, get 'em up high
Now we gonna go from side to side
Front to back, back to front, front to back
Here we go, here we go

[Chorus:]
I wanna be a white trash millionaire
Ain't got much and I don't care
Count your cash and kiss my ass
This whole damn world gonna know I been here
I got two zig-zags and you know I'll share
I'm everyone from nowhere
White trash
White trash
White trash
White trash

I wanna be a white trash millionaire
Ain't got much and I don't care
Count your cash and kiss my ass
This whole damn world gonna know I been here
I got two zig-zags and you know I'll share
I'm everyone from nowhere
White trash
White trash
White trash millionaire
2. Killing Floor (4:02)
A plain stare with a smile on display,
Headed home where it's empty and safe,
Anger over takin' my faith,
I don't think it should be this way,

Chorus:
Some people say,
I need to pray,
Feels like it's me against the world,
I been turned out,
Been thrown down,
To the killing floor (Down to the killing floor)

A thousand words on an empty page,
A picture hangs without of frame,
Shallow souls with time to kill,
I took the water, but not the pill,

Chorus:
Some people say,
I need to pray,
Feels like it's me against the world,
I been turned out,
Been thrown down,
To the killing floor (Down to the killing floor)

I'm tired of you saying,
I should be praying,
I know it's me against the world,
I been turned out,
Been thrown down,
To the killing floor (Down to the killing floor) x2All

KILLIN' FLOOR !!!!!
3. In My Blood (3:49)
Right here right now were falling apart while were falling down who knew to hurt would feel this good
Move along so far from home my mistakes go on and on in truth I hate to be alone

Its in my blood and its in my bones its in my heart and soul and when im gone I hope you'll understand

When I get home I will make amends when Tuesday comes ill be gone again and when im gone I hope youll understand

its in my blood I miss your touch and I miss your smile everything you do it drives me wild but you know it’s the way it has to be another day and another round I miss the friends in my hometown but in truth it’s the reason that I leave its

Its in my blood and its in my bones its in my heart and soul and when im gone I hope youll understand

When I get home I will make amends when Tuesday comes ill be gone again and when im gone I hope youll understand would you love me the same if I never started dreaming are we better this way ever since I started leaving
4. Such A Shame (Feat. Lzzy Hale) (3:27)
Another Late night on 14th and Main
Should daddy's little girl be out this late
She takes off her clothes and closes her eyes
Tears start to fall as she looks at her life

It wasn't her fault that you weren't around
To keep her away from the things that she found
God only knows what else could go wrong
Somebody come take this little girl home

They found her body face down dead in the rain
Such a shame
Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain
Who's to blame
Such a shame

Every young girl in this world needs love
Somebody to hold so they don't give up
It's our mothers and daughters and sisters you see
When your angel cries then you'll see what i mean

It wasn't her fault that you weren't around
To keep her away from the things that she found
God only knows what else could go wrong
Somebody come take this little girl home

They found her body face down dead in the rain
Such a shame
Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain
Who's to blame
Such a shame

There's a place in heaven for every little girl
Lord that gets taken in this dirty world

They found her body face down dead in the rain
Such a shame [shame]
Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain

They found her body face down dead in the rain
Such a shame
Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain
Such a shame

They found her body face down dead in the rain
5. Won't Let Go (Feat. Lzzy Hale) (3:19)
I wonder where we'll be
Will everything we see still look the way it does today?
Will everything we have be everything it is?
If we go our separate ways.
Down by the river every summer we had nothing but time
on our side
Talking about forever how we'd always be together.

[chorus]
Life keeps us running
Chasing and falling
But we won't let go.
When the world keeps on turning
Our hearts are hurting
But we won't let go

I wonder where we'll be
when were thirty three
Will we still be who we are?
Will everything we know be everything we hoped?
Will we still have this world?
Another cold December and I can still remember
The way you say we'd always be together and no matter what the weather.

[chorus]

When the distance hurts and it all gets worse
These are the times that we will remember
When the darkness fades we will still remain
Inseperable, unstoppable, invincible

Down by the river every summer we had nothing but time
Talking about forever how we'd always be together.
6. Blame It on the Boom Boom (3:11)
Like big love, black love, white love, your love
Here we go
Sit back, hold up, open up, just enjoy the show
Like ice cream, whip cream, nasty dreams
Do you know? Can you feel what I mean?

Say Hey eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh
Oh oh oh oh
Say Hey eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh

[Chorus:]
It feels so good
And you knew that it would
When we're bringing on the boom boom
And you're so sweet from your head to your feet
When I'm giving you the boom boom
Yeah don't wake up in the morning
In somebody else's room room
Blame it on the boom boom

Now see I would ask you where you like it
Instead I'll tell you where you're
gonna get it, see
In the bedroom, the bathroom, the classroom,
the last room on the left
In my fantasy, you're next to me
I'm giving you my everything, my very best
Like back beats, back seats, summer heat

C'mon I wanna hear everybody say
Hey eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh
Yeah! Yeah!
Hey eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh

[Chorus:]
It feels so good
And you knew that it would
When we're bringing on the boom boom
And you're so sweet from your head to your feet
When I'm giving you the boom boom
Yeah don't wake up in the morning
In somebody else's room room
Blame it on the boom boom

Hey eh eh

Do you like big? Yeah
Black? Yeah
White? Yeah
Sho nuff here we go

Hey eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh
Hey eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh
Oh!

[Chorus:]
It feels so good
And you knew that it would
When we're bringing on the boom boom
And you're so sweet from your head to your feet
When I'm giving you the boom boom

[Chorus:]
It feels so good
And you knew that it would
When we're bringing on the boom boom
And you're so sweet from your head to your feet
When I'm giving you the boom boom
Yeah don't wake up in the morning
In somebody else's room room
Blame it on the boom boom

Yeah yeah yeah
Huh

Now we've all been thinking
there's just one thing left to say
Blame it on the boom boom!
7. Like I Roll (3:33)
I got my daddy’s car
And his old guitar
A suitcase full of broken hearts
Got my momma’s smile
And a painted blue eye
I ain’t got much
But what I got is mine
And I roll like I roll
I roll like I roll

I got an open road
And a restless soul
The Rolling Stones on the radio
And I roll like I roll
Cause’ I roll like I roll

I roll like the hills under the California sun
Burn through the desert like a devil on the run
I’ll be flying high till the day that I die
No matter what they say
I begin another day
I will roll like I roll

Well there’s a lot a people gonna try to bring you down
They got a lot of
They gonna try to put you out
I keep looking up
In this world full of doubt
I roll like I roll

I roll like the hills under the California sun
Burn through the desert like a devil on the run
I’ll be flying high till the day that I die
No matter what they say
I begin another day
I’m not gonna let it slip away
Cause I rather burn in hell
Than to let it fade

I got an open road
And a restless soul
The Rolling Stones on the radio
And I roll like I roll

I roll through the hills of my own Kentucky home
Back to the place where my heart belongs
I’ll be flying high till the day that I die
No matter what they say
I begin another day
I did it my way!
8. Can't You See (Toy Caldwell) (3:33)
I'm gonna take a freight train down at the station, and
I don't care where it goes
Gonna climb a mountain, the highest mountain, Lord
And gonna jump off, ain’t nobody gonna know
Can't you see, oh, can't you see,
What that woman, Lord
She been doin' to me
Can't you see, oh, can't you see
What that woman, she been doin' to me

I'm gonna find me a hole in the wall,
I'll crawl inside and die
’Cause my lady, now a mean old woman, Lord
She never told me goodbye
Can't you see, oh, can't you see,
What that woman she been doin' to me
Can't you see, oh, can't you see,
What that woman, she been doin' to me

I’m gonna take it south-bound,
Down to Georgia now,
I ain't never comin' back
I’m gonna buy me a ticket as far as I can,
‘Till the train it run out of track
Can't you see, oh, can't you see,
What that woman, she been doin' to me
Can't you see, oh, can't you see,
What that woman, what she been doin' to me

Lord, lordy lordy lord lord
9. Let Me See You Shake (3:07)
10. Stay (3:24)
I'd sell my soul just to see your face
And i'd break my bones just to heal your pain
And in these times I need a saving grace
Cuz time is running out and I'm starting to lose my faith

[chorus]
But if I told you I loved you would it make you wanna stay
I'm sorry for the way I make you feel day after day
And if I wrote you a love song and sang it to you everyday
Would it ever be enough to make you wanna come back home to stay?

Would it make you, make you wanna stay?

My hearts on my sleeve but its turning black
And without your touch I'm not gonna last
It feels like my walls are caving in
And i'll do anything to have you here again

[chorus]

The days are cold the nights are long
and I can't stand to be alone
Please know this is not your fault
And all I want is to tell you I love you
And make you wanna stay.
I'm sorry for the way I make you feel day after day
And if I wrote you a love song and sang it to you everyday
Would it ever be enough to make you wanna come back home to stay

Would it make you, make you wanna stay
(I'm sorry for my ways)
Would it make you, make you wanna stay
(will it ever be enough)
Would it make you, make you wanna stay
11. Change (3:05)
12. All I'm Dreamin' Of (4:03)
Something about our world today
That makes me wanna cry
There's too much anger and too much pain
Too much money and too many lies
If I could have one wish tonight
I would beg of us to forget our pride
If we could do just one thing right,
We could help each other to love our lives.

[Chorus]
All I'm dreaming of is good times, good friends, and somebody to love.
All I'm dreaming of is no fears, no tears and blue skies up above.

There's people around us everywhere
Who need help like you and me
A family was taken by a storm
And we just watched it on TV
If I could have one wish tonight
I would beg of us to forget our pride
If we could do just one thing right
We could help each other to love our lives.

[Chorus]

When one things right another is wrong
But in the end love will always keep us strong.

All I'm dreaming of is a house on a hill and somebody to love
All I'm dreaming of is the sun to shine and blue skies up above.
