Lyrics From Six Days On The Road


Another Side
MPG3

We came out from sheffield and they put us on the line
You could smell the powder burning and man it hurt my eyes
They knew them boys were tired and weak
We were fresh and we were strong
We could not what to blast away and make our presence known
Every time I took my aim and got one in my sight
In my heart I knew the way and this way was not right

Chorus
I guess my daddy would be proud but my mamma she's ashamed
And I know deep down we need a change
Them Northern boys are friends of mine
But I've got my Southern pride
I'm standing here a fighting wishing there was another side

We burned each others crops and fields
And took the very best
We fought are we back and forth and they puts us to the test
I know that some things are wrong
But what gave them the right
To point their righteous fingers and expect us not to fight
We all cried on the night they burned Atlanta down
How much more can we take and still stand our ground

Chorus
I guess my daddy would be proud but my mamma she's ashamed
And I know deep down we need a change
Them colored boys are friends of mine
But I've got my Southern pride
I'm standing here a fighting wishing there was another side

In four years the smoke had cleared
And I went back to the farm
Little brother met me at the bridge and he held out his arms
He was thin and weak and wounded and dressed in Yankee blue
Well I cried and I held him and together we both knew
If it could be done other there would be a better way
Still one family and one nation oh but what a price we pay

Chorus
I guess my daddy would be proud but my mamma she's ashamed
And I know deep down we need a change
Now some of them boys were friends of mine
But dang this Southern pride
I'm standing here a crying wishing there was another side
I'm wishing there was another side
Wishing there was other side

Talkin' 'bout You
MPG3

Mama came home going on and on 'bout the new girl down at the beauty salon
She said after what I saw today
Our little town will never be the same
I didn't even have to think twice
As far as I was concerned
I was hoping she was right

Chorus
She was talkin' 'bout you
The way you walk the you talk, ain't no doubt
Talkin' 'bout you
Sinking sand that every red blooded man dreams about
Well I'll admit I've got that fever too
Well I can't quite talkin' 'bout you

I never got the respect I deserved
From that rowdy bunch of boys down at work
Now when I talk that assembly line stops
You can almost here a pin drop
They just cannot get enough
That don't bother me, cause I sure love

Chorus

I ain't never thought too much about settling down
No woman's ever made me think what I'm thinking now

Chorus

Talkin' 'bout you girl
Talkin' 'bout you

This Night Won't last Forever
MPG3

Everybody Likes a celebration
Happy music and conversation
I'd be lying if I said I didn't have the blues
In the corner there's a couple dancing
From the kitchen I can hear them laughing
Oh I wish I was celebrating too

Chorus
I know this night won't last forever
I know the sun is gonna rise sometime
I need some hope for a bright tomorrow
And I know this heart is gonna mend just fine

So pardon me for my disposition
I wish I didn't have to sit and listen
Their playing the same old songs on the stereo
She's been lying since the day I met her
I be better off to just forget her
Oh I would rather be lonesome all alone

Chorus
And I know this night won't last forever
I know the sun is gonna rise sometime
I need some hope for a bright tomorrow
And I know this heart is gonna mend just fine

Suddenly there's a strange vibration from my head to my toe
Filling me with a strange sensation
Somebody's telling me somebody's saying

Chorus

Repeat Chorus

Six Days On The Road
MPG3

Well I pulled out of Pittsburgh rolling down the eastern seaboard
I've got my diesel wound up and she's running like a never before
There's a speed zone ahead but all right, I don't see a cop in sight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

I got ten forward gears and a Georgia overdrive
I'm passing little white lines and my eyes are open wide
Just passed a Jimmy and a White, I've been passing everything in sight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Well it seems like a month since I kissed my baby goodbye
I could have a lot of woman but I'm not like some of the guys
I could find one to hold me me tight,
But I could not make believe it's right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Well the ICC is checking on down the line
I'm a little overweight and my log books are way behind
But nothing bothers me tonight, I can dodge all the scales all right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

My rigs a little old but that don't mean she's slow
There's a flame from her stack and the smoke's rolling black as coal
My home town's coming in sight, if you think I'm happy your right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Six Days On The Road and
I'm gonna make it home tonight

Small talk
MPG3

Standing in line at the grocery
A bunch of magazines are looking back at me
They got a Bigfoot Elvis and a UFO
Well it's on TV so it must be so
We wanna believe we take the bait
We take it hook and line

Chorus
It's small talk don't you know what I heard about so and so
Can't wait to tell somebody it's getting better every time
It don't seem to matter who we talk about or we taking to
It's just small talk all small talk

Daddy told me when I was young
You got two ears boy and just one tongue
He said the reason why were made that way
We got more to learn then we have to say
I still believe every word he said
But I get caught up sometimes

Chorus
In small talk don't you know what I heard about so and so
Can't wait to tell somebody it's getting better every time
It don't seem to matter who we talk about or we taking to
It's just small talk all small talk

We got a TV show
Talking about a radio talk show
Talking about the way nobody's talking anymore
And by the time it gets around
It leaps the truth with a single bound
And what we need to hear goes out the door

Chorus
With small talk don't you know what I heard about so and so
Can't wait to tell somebody it's getting better every time
It don't seem to matter who we talk about or we taking to
It's just small talk all small talk

With This Ring
MPG3

I'll say my peace and I'll play my hand
And maybe this way you'll understand
I'm short on words I was raised that way
But I still mean all the ones I say

Chorus
And with ring I promise you
Everything that I have or can do
There's so many roads that love can run
But here in my heart your the only one

I do all right here on my own
But you give me things I've never known
Oh here I am getting up my nerve
It may not be all that you deserve

Chorus

Repeat Chorus

Here in my heart your the only one

Transistor Rodeo
MPG3

Now she's waiting in the swing under the front porch light
The girls from work are going out tonight
All week long they've been making plans
Gonna look for love and find a man oh man

Chorus
At the transistor rodeo they've got
Cowboys and cowgirls just for show
They ride em hard and they hold on tight
And they dance and they dance
And they dance real slow
At the transistor rodeo

Expectation was a none too great
They dance every dance and now it's getting late
They'll be back next week and try again
They want to dance the dance that never ends

Chorus
At the transistor rodeo they've got
Cowboys and cowgirls just for show
They ride em hard and they hold on tight
And they dance and they dance
And they dance real slow
And they dance and they dance
And they dance real slow

And there's always a chance you can find it tonight
If you go where the lonely go
And you search every heart and you look in the eyes
And you know they come and they go
And they dance

Chorus

Chorus
At the transistor rodeo they've got
Cowboys and cowgirls just for show
They ride em hard and they hold on tight
And they dance and they dance
And they dance real slow
At the transistor rodeo

Night And Day
MPG3

Nothing to say but I keep on talking
Nowhere to go but I keep walking anyway
Night and day
It's been this way since the day I found you
It's getting worse every time I'm around you what can I say
It's night and day

Chorus
Oh my day judgement was the night met
I say I don't remember but I can't forget
The only time you're on my mind this way...
Is night and day

I miss every time your gone for five minutes
Even if I have a dream your in it anyway
Night and day
We got a love that goes a distance
I used to wonder if that made a difference either way
It's night and day

Chorus

If I'm waking sleeping eating breathing
Making money breaking even
Bottom or the top of the world girl your on my mind
If it's spring fall hot cold
Feast or famine young or old
Maybe not Super Bowl
But that's the only time

We got a love that goes a distance
I used to wonder if that made a difference either way
It's night and day
Oh all I want to say....
It's night and day

Half A Heart
MPG3

I've got to look out my backdoor
Check and see if the coast is clear
I'm talking to my self and I keep it low
Making sure that you don't hear
I never know day to day
If you feel the same way
And I can only believe in
Half of what I'm feeling

Chorus
And I walk the line time after time
You keep me in the middle
The only thing I know
I'm half a heart to stay girl
And half a mind to go

Now I've come to a fork in the road
Which way do I go from here
There's one thing that you got to know
There ain't nothing perfectly clear
You want to know where this ends
I wanna know where it begins
And I'm left here in between
What you say and what you mean

Chorus
I'm half a heart half a mind
Half a heart half a mind

You keep me in the middle
The only thing I know
I'm half a heart to stay girl
And half a mind to go

Half a heart to stay
And half a mind to go

Between You And Paradise
MPG3

It's bone dry and hot here in Paradise Arkansas
Never seen cracks like the cracks in this dirt
It's Uncle Cliff on the phone, but I really think the Lord called
When he said come on down boy and I'll put you to work
It hasn't been easy letting you go
But I think I'm finally on that road

Chorus
Cause there ain't no blue '92 Cavalier
There ain't no moonlight drive-in here
There are days you don't even cross my mind
There's no one here that I don't want to see
There's no one here that don't want to see me
I ain't found it yet, but I'm convinced there's a life
Somewhere between you and Paradise

I've been hanging around with a girl here in town
Every time I look she's looking better
But I'm still not sure I can take your voice on the phone
So I wrote you this letter
It hasn't been easy letting you go,
But I think I'm finally on that road

Chorus

I'm not gonna apologize for the way I just disappeared
I couldn't bear another minute without you
Thank God I'm here

Chorus

Somewhere between you and Paradise

A Love Like This
MPG3

Who would have thought an innocent dance
Would leave two hearts with even half a chance
And who would have know after all this time
We would search and that we would find

Chorus
In a town this big in a house this small
In a world so flat that there could exist
A love like that a love like this

So young so green so blue so bold
Who would have thought that
We would brake the mold
So afraid to fall and scared not to
If we had only known what our hearts knew

Chorus

Repeat Chorus

Every Twist And Turn
MPG3

Chorus
With every twist and turn we take
We'll get out in the passing lane
And we'll go on like two rolling stones
We live and learn with every twist and turn

You're Mama and Daddy didn't like me none
They didn't like my style
But I worked real hard and I got their respect
But it took a while

Gonna find us a preacher, gonna find you a ring
There's a rock or two on the road
Ain't never gonna think about turning around
No matter how heavy the load

Chorus

We're underpaid in overdrive getting by
Working to find our way
Can't see around the bend so till then
I bought us a lotto ticket just in case

But win or lose girl I'm with you
This much I know for sure
We ain't getting lost where ever we go
Cause your my map of the world

Chorus

It's a long winding way
That's the way love goes they say

Chorus

We live and learn with every twist and turn

The Nebraska Song
MPG3

Well I came up from Goodland, Kansas
I turned eighteen today
I'm college bound for Lincoln
Nebraska's where I'll stay

It's been my dream all my life
To play football on this field
And if I ever get the chance
I'll make you this deal

I'll work hard I'll do my part
You won't hear me complain
I'll never go down easy
I swear I'll pull my weight

Hey there Mr. Osborne
I'll do anything to play
And it sure would be a honor sir
To call you coach someday

Here in the middle of the middle west
We ain't afraid to fight
Well I've looked to you sir
Now I'll look you in the eye

Well I hear something calling me
Like I've never heard before
It's a red and white freight train
And I wanna get on board

I'll work hard I'll do my part
You won't hear me complain
I'll never go down easy
I swear I'll pull my weight

Hey there Mr. Osborne
I'll do anything to play
And it sure would be a honor sir
To call you coach someday

I came up from Goodland, Kansas
I turned eighteen today
I'm college bound for Lincoln
Nebraska's where I'll stay
