Lyrics From The Hits Live


Six Days On The Road

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

Step The Step

Mama told me when I was three
The street'll never get you no where
You take a street car jumpin' and back beat bump
And get along like it isn't there
You hold your head up high
Like you're gonna fly

You take the bitter 'til you find the sweet
And when you got that crowd and it's screamin' loud
You leave them sittin' on the edge of their seat

Chorus
You gotta step that step
Walk that walk
Shake that thing
And Honey talk that talk

Hollywood, if New York could
Keep you babblin' 'til the break of day
No time to rest and you've got to feel blessed
'Cause you're gonna get it anyway
You start to wail and your face turns pale
You've got to pump it till your pistol pops
And as the eagle flew baby so will you
Cause you're climbin' all the way to the top

Repeat Chorus Six Times

Betty's Bein Bad

Betty's out bein' bad tonight
Betty and her boyfriend
They had a big fight
She found out
What everybody knew
Too many cooks spoil the stew
She don't care
What nobody thinks
She's gonna be bad
'til the whole town stinks

chorus
Betty's bein bad
Betty's bein bad
She's bein bad bad bad
She's out bein' bad
Betty's out bein' bad tonight
Betty and her boyfriend
They had a big fight

She went home when she found out
Said, "Pack your bags
I want you out"
Her boyfriend thought
She was talking jive
'til he saw her standing
With a .45
A .45's quicker than 409
Betty cleaned house
For the very last time

chorus
Betty's bein bad
Betty's bein bad
She's bein bad bad bad
She's out bein' bad
Betty's out bein' bad tonight
Betty and her boyfriend
They had a big fight

Now if you go out
And you see Betty
Don't scream and shout
Unless you are ready
You are ready to rock
Ready to roll
'til hell freezes over
And you catch a cold
Betty's not mad
She's just getting even
Betty's bein' bad
It's her way of leaving

The Boys And Me

Me and the boys that I knew in school
Are thirty years old, stubborn as a herd of mules
We get all cleaned up on a Saturday night
We say yes to the girls when they ask if they look alright
Load up the cars and ride around
Roll down the windows and we go to town

Chorus
And we talk too slow, drive too fast
We're high on life and low on gas
Tryin' to make the way things are
The way things used to be
The boys and me

The phone rings it's the call of the wild
And the clothes we wear have finally come back in style
We got some tall tales that we love to tell
They may not be true
But we sure do remember them well
We work hard to have a little fun
Roll up our sleeves and get the job done son

Chorus repeats twice

Thank God For You

Well I've been called a self-made man
Girl don't you believe it's true
I know exactly how lucky I am
when I'm gettin' this close to you
It's high time I'm giving some praise
to those that got me where I am today

Chorus
I gotta thank mama for the cookin'
Daddy for the whuppin'
The devil for the trouble that I get into
I got to give credit where credit is due
I thank the bank for the money
Thank God for you

A strong heart and a willing hand
That's the secret to my success
A good woman... I try to be a good man
A good job, Lord I know I've been blessed
I'm just a part of a greater plan
It doesn't matter which part I am

Chorus
I gotta thank mama for the teachin'
Daddy for the preachin'
The devil for the trouble that I get into
I got to give credit where credit is due
I thank the bank for the money
Thank God for you

Drive Me Wild

You pull over and I jump in
To your little red Mercedes Benz
Well I know there's no turning back
Well I don't even care where we are
I just want to be inside your car

Chorus
You can drive me wild baby
Or you can drive me crazy
You just drive me I don't care with you
I'll go anywhere
Clean out of sight
Once around the moon
Holdin' on tight
Take me by the hand
Pull me by the heart
With you, with you I'll go anywhere

Well in the fast lane on a Sunday drive
Anywhere we go I'll be fine
Just as long as I'm with you
It don't matter when we get back
This ain't the time to talk about that

Chorus

If you take me
I will go with you anywhere
I don't know if you know where goin' somewhere
Goin' somewhere
Goin' somewhere

Chorus

Some Girls Do

She turned up her nose as she walked by my Cadillac
From the corner of my eye I saw you and you laughed
You were sittin' on the swing on your front porch
Paintn' your nails like you were bored
And you yelled she was sure impressed with you

Chorus
Well I ain't first class
But I ain't white trash
I'm wild and a little crazy too
Some girls don't like boys like me
Aw but some girls do

I yelled and asked if you would like a ride
When we pulled out of your yard I bald a tire
You was laughing at me, I was doing James Dean
You was the prettiest girl I'd ever seen
When you rolled your eyes and twirled my pink fur dice

Chorus
Well good ole' boys don't get no breaks
And rich boys think they got what it takes
But theres' someone for each of us they say

Repeat Chorus

Lookin' For Love

Well I spent a lifetime lookin' for you
Singles bars and good time lovers are never true
Playin' a fools game and hopin' to win
And tellin' those sweet lies and losin' again

Chorus
I was lookin' for love in all the wrong places
Lookin' for love in too many faces
Searchin' their eyes
and lookin' for traces
of what I'm dreamin' of
Hopin' to find a friend and a lover
God bless the day I discover
another heart
Lookin' for love

I was along then no love in sight
And I did everything I could to get me through the night
Don't know where it started or where it might end
I turned to a stranger just like a friend

Repeat Chorus
I was lookin' for love in all the wrong places
Lookin' for love in too many faces
Searchin' their eyes
and lookin' for traces
of what I'm dreamin' of
Hopin' to find a friend and a lover
God bless the day I discover
another heart
Lookin' for love

You came a knockin' at my heart's door
You're everything I've been lookin' for
No more lookin' for love in all the wrong places
Lookin' for love in too many faces
Searchin' their eyes
and lookin' for traces
of what I'm dreamin' of
Now that I found a friend and a lover
God bless the day I discover
You oh you
Lookin' for love

Takin' Care Of Business

You get up every morning
From your alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty

And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day

And I'll be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime

Work out
If it were easy as fishin'
You could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a second-hand guitar
Chances are you'll go far
If you get in with the right bunch of fellows

People see you having fun
Just a-lying in the sun
Tell them that you like it this way
It's the work that we avoid
And we're all self-employed
We love to work at nothing all day

And we be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Take good care of my business
When I'm away, every day whoo!

You get up every morning
From your alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty

And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day

And I'll be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business.....
