Track Name: Travelin' Man
Oh my God another Friday, got that beer in my hand
I'm on that long lonesome road, I'm a travelin’ man
You know, it's not the kind of travelin' that's done 'hind the wheel
It's on a bar stool drinkin' when you feel like I feel
The final destination's “Heartache”, so you better believe
I keep on racking up these miles while I sit here and grieve

Been through the State..State of Depression,
The State of Shock, and Misery..
They always start to run together
Like the State..State of Denial
I'll reach the State line of Hopelessness in just another mile
Then it's last stop "Heartache" just as fast as I can
Cause when I'm at the bar drinkin' I'm a travelin' man

That evil woman tried to warn me, but I just couldn't see
Now every night I'm drinkin', trying to outrun her memory
There's no stop signs or speed limits when it's all headed south
I'm going State to State, as soon as that whiskey hits my mouth
I'm on that never ending highway when I drown my sorrow
And another hundred thousand miles waits in every bottle

Been through the State..State of Depression
The State of Shock, and Misery..They always start to run together
Like the State..State of Denial
I'll reach the State line of Hopelessness in just another mile
Then it's last stop "Heartache" just as fast as I can
Cause when I'm at the bar drinkin' I'm a travelin' man
Track Name: Fill Up My Cup
Hey bartender, today's the coldest day in September
But I don't mean the weather
I believed in fairy tales, (and) in a love that's over
But it's so hard to talk about it when I'm sober

Fill up my cup, and I'll pour out my heart to you tonight
Cause when I'm drunk, I keep my secrets in plain sight
So you can tell the man and myth apart
Fill up my cup,and I'll pour out my heart

Dear family, I keep these loving thoughts inside this brandy
And I don't understand it
Cause there's so many things I'd like to say to you
But the words will only come out when I down the booze

Fill up my cup, and I'll pour out my heart to you tonight
Cause when I'm drunk, I keep my secrets in plain sight
So you can tell the man and myth apart
Fill up my cup, and I'll pour out my heart

To all my fans, listening tonight to me play with my band
An open book I stand
I put my life to words, like paint on a canvas
Every stroke is just a glimpse of who this man is

And I fill up my cup, and I pour out my heart to you tonight
Cause when I'm drunk, I keep my secrets in plain sight
So you can tell the man and myth apart
Fill up my cup and I'll pour out my heart
Track Name: Pop Went The Country
I was raised on Merle Haggard, Waylon, and Willie
Hank Williams, and Johnny Cash too
Honky Tonk Angels, fast trains, and Outlaws
Songs about feeling and truth
They talked about the heartache, freedom, and hard days
Put into words how you felt inside
Then came that lonesome day, when it all went away
And that real country music said goodbye

Pop went the country
Now it's all about the money
They forgot about the old ways
Made a change to make some quick change
Bout time they add some more Hank
If this is a joke, it ain't funny
On the air Monday through Sunday
Pop went the country

Now I'm not naive-Ya see, I know times are changin'
But I can't pretend that everything's alright
This here today and gone tomorrow, “manufactured music” is where I think we need to draw the line
Cause there's a reason legends still are legends, and classic songs are classic
Cause things coming from the heart will always last
So, let's get back to the real, and get behind the wheel
And put this country music back on track

Cause Pop went the country
Now it's all about the money
They forgot about the old ways
Made a change to make some quick change
Bout time they add some more Hank
If this is a joke, it ain't funny
On the air Monday through Sunday-Pop went the country
'Round the clock Monday through Sunday
Pop went the country
Track Name: All Day I Cry
All day I cry now that you’re gone
Most days I’m barely holding on
I watched you walk right out on me
But, I can not make your memory leave

I saw you pack up all your things
And throw at me your wedding ring
You wrecked my world, drove out of sight
But, your memories still right here both day and night

All day I cry now that you’re gone
Most days I’m barely holding on
I watched you walk right out on me
But, I can not make your memory leave

An empty heart, an empty home
And the worst pain I’ve ever known
Though you’re a thousand miles away
I stay trapped with thoughts of you that never fade

All day I cry now that you’re gone
Most days I’m barely holding on
I watched you walk right out on me
But, I can not make your memory leave
Track Name: Call Of The Wild
A rebel born in the country, got tired of makin’ them wait
(They) knew I was a storm brewing bigger then the blizzard of 78
I heard a noise in the distance that really made me smile
It was call, the call of the wild

Got me saying ah-oooooo
Pour me a drink, and give me room
Cause raisin’ cain, howin’ at the moon..that’s my style
Ah-oooooo...And, I ain’t ever gonna change my tune
I heard the call, the call of the wild

I took off like a freight train, no one was slowing me down
Up on different stages, singing my songs to everybody around
When the crowd gets to howlin’, it makes it all worthwhile
Cause it’s the call of the wild

Got me saying ah-oooooo
Pour me a drink, and give me room
Cause raisin’ cain, howin’ at the moon..that’s my style
Ah-oooooo...And, I ain’t ever gonna change my tune
I heard the call, the call of the wild
Track Name: Ugly
Born in right, but I went wrong
The devil inside I tried to leave alone
I kept him locked up, but I felt that rage
when someone come along and try to rattle my cage
I told em' that the evil lurks inside of me
I told em' keep walking, let me be
My blood boils like the blazin' sun
You lookin' for some trouble, well, you just found some

Cause I'm ugly
You're lookin' at the ugly side of me
I'm ugly
You're messing with the ugly side of me
I'm ugly. I'm ugly

Condemned man, God turned his back
Guitar in hand, dressed in black
Forced to roam, wicked soul
Words of pain comin' out of my throat
I sing about the sorrow. A world of hate
I sing about the dark that can suffocate
The pain grippin' me like a vice
The kind of power that could end your life

Cause I'm ugly
You're lookin' at the ugly side of me
I'm ugly
You're messing with the ugly side of me
I'm ugly. I'm ugly

No more happy. No more cares
No more smiles baby, just despair
Feel the anger. Feel the wrath
Just keep movin'. Void my path

Cause I'm ugly
You're lookin' at the ugly side of me
I'm ugly
You're messing' with the ugly side of me
I'm ugly. I'm ugly
Track Name: Hillbilly Superstar
The sign says No Trespassin'..best to stay where you belong
Cause I'm willing to die to protect what's mine..my family and my home
I had to work and fight for everything I got..It didn't come from backing down.
I didn't kiss no ass to get to where I'm at..and you can bet I ain't startin' now

Cause I'm a cornfed, hell raisin',Hillbilly Superstar
I bleed Red, White, and Blue collar..earned all my calluses and scars
I'm a certified, ’til the day I die, Hillbilly Superstar

I cash my check on Friday..drinkin' with my friends all night
Just set 'em up and I'll knock 'em down..when I do it, I do it right
Straight shooter, to the point, let you know where I stand
And if you can't tell, I'm proud as hell, of exactly who I am

I'm a cornfed, hell raisin', Hillbilly Superstar
I bleed Red, White, and Blue collar..earned all my calluses and scars
I'm a certified, ’til the day I die, Hillbilly Superstar

I am a product of the good ol' U.S.A.
And I wouldn't have it any other way
I am a product of the good ol' U.S.A.
And I wouldn't have it any other way

Cause I'm a cornfed, hell raisin', Hillbilly Superstar
I bleed Red, White, and Blue collar..earned all my calluses and scars
I'm a certified, ’til the day I die, Hillbilly Superstar
Track Name: Rated R For Rebel
Always misbehavin', raisin' hell, having fun
Keeping those bad words rollin' off my tongue
Drinking and smoking, go against the grain
Rated R for rebel, and I never will change

We ride motorcycles, and drive four wheel drives
Punching a loudmouth between his eyes
On this road of life, I am makin’ my own lane
Rated R for rebel, and I never will change

Parental Advisory, untamed and uncut
That says what he's thinking, and does what he wants
You can't control me, I'm a runaway train
Rated R for rebel, and I never will change

We're here by the thousands-all for one, one for all
We never will bow down-We never will crawl
Our numbers are growing-We will always remain
Rated R for rebel, and I never will change
Rated R for rebel, and I never will change
Track Name: The One That Can't Be Tamed
I went to the doctor. They said that I am broken
And they went and gave me pills
But they couldn’t fix me. They say that I am crazy
Blood so cold it gave them chills

I ain’t afraid of dying. They say my mind is fragile
They should label me a threat
Cause I ain’t one for playing, and I hear that stuff you’re saying
And you people ain’t seen nothing yet

I’m the one that can’t be tamed
I’m the one that can’t be tamed
I don’t care about tomorrow
Give a damn about today
I’m the one that can’t be tamed

When I was a baby, they knew that I was different
But they hoped it wasn’t so
They did their best to love me. They’d kiss me and they’d hug me
But it was out of control
I even started praying. I prayed for forgiveness
Even went and saw a priest
He looked up to the Father. He sprinkled holy water
But he couldn’t tame the beast

I’m the one that can’t be tamed
I’m the one that can’t be tamed
I don’t care about tomorrow
Give a damn about today
I’m the one that can’t be tamed
Track Name: Train To The Honky Tonk
Well, I'm taking out the car and I'm going down
To that little spot jumping at the edge of town
I'm rollin' by your house, honking the horn
Screamin' out the window, yelling, "All aboard"
Come on ya'll what you waitin' for?

All aboard the train to the honky tonk
Crank it up til the beat and the boots stomp
Get your move on
Ain’t nobody standing in the way of us and this party
There's 80 proof, girls in daisy dukes
And, brother you can't go wrong
So, all aboard the train to the honky tonk

You only need some money to drown your blues
And you can pile in the back cause we're making room
Just catch that train coming through your town
Kickin' up dust, radio loud
You can hear it coming from miles around

All aboard the train to the honky tonk
Crank it up til the beat and the boots stomp
Get your move on
Ain’t nobody standing in the way of us and this party
There's 80 proof, girls in daisy dukes
And, brother you can't go wrong
So, all aboard the train to the honky tonk

Just catch that train coming through your town
Kickin' up dust, radio loud
You can hear it coming from miles around

All aboard the train to the honky tonk
Crank it up til the beat and the boots stomp
Get your move on
Ain’t nobody standing in the way of us and this party
There's 80 proof, girls in daisy dukes
And, brother you can't go wrong
So, all aboard the train to the honky tonk
Track Name: The Great Unknown
It's over now, nothin' left to say
To my back is yesterday
Those days are gone, I know those days are gone
Can't turn around, the past fades out of sight
A life of wrong, I must now make it right
and carry on, into the great unknown
and carry on, unafraid
Now I best be on my way

The sadness burns inside me way down low
This trip alone I must take from my home, but I must go
I know that I must go
There's no goin' back, you can not press rewind
The time has come to leave loved ones behind
Reap what I've sowed, and face the great unknown
Reap what I've sowed, unafraid
Now I best be on my way

You take it all for granted and never realize
That some day you'll have to walk inside my shoes, so sad you can not cry
And go alone, into the great unknown
And go alone, unafraid
Now I best be on my way
