Seven days of saturday

Is all that I need

Got no use for Sunday

'Cause I don't rest in peace

Don't need no Mondays

Or the rest of the week

I spend a lot of time in bed

But baby I don't like to sleep no

I won't lie to you

I'm never gonna cry to you

I'll probably drive you wild 8 days a week

Until I'm 6 feet under

Baby I don't need a bed

Gonna live while I'm alive

I'll sleep when I'm dead

Till they roll me over

And lay my bones to rest

Gonna live while I'm alive

I'll sleep when I'm dead

So you're looking for some action

I got got everything you need

Better keep your motor running

'cause I was built for speed

This ain't no slumber party

Got no time for catching z's

If they say that that ain't healthy

Well then living's a disease

We're never going to die baby

Come on let me drive you crazy

We'll make every night another New Year's Eve

Till I'm six feet under

I won't need a bed

Gonna live while I'm alive

I'll sleep when I'm dead

Till they roll me over

And lay my bones to rest

Gonna live while I'm alive

I'll sleep when I'm dead

Sleep when I'm dead, sleep when I'm dead

Gonna live while I'm alive,

I'll sleep when I'm dead

Seven days of Saturday

Is all that I need

Got no use for Sunday

'Cause I don't rest in peace

I was born to live

You know I wasn't born to die

But if they party down in heaven

I'll be sure to be on time

Until I'm six feet under

I don't need a bed

Gonna live while I'm alive

I'll sleep when I'm dead

Till they roll me over

And lay my bones to rest

Gonna live while I'm alive

I'll sleep when I'm dead

I feel like I'm exploding

Going out of my head

Gonna live while I'm alive

I'll sleep when I'm dead

Till I'm six feet under

And they lay my bones to rest

Gonna live while I'm alive

I'll sleep when I'm dead

Sleep when I'm dead, sleep when I'm dead

Gonna live while I'm alive, sleep when I'm dead

"This Ain't A Love Song"

I should have seen it coming when roses died

Should have seen the end of summer in your eyes

I should have listened when you said good night

You really meant good bye

Baby, ain't it funny, how you never ever learn to fall

You're really on your knees, when you think you're standing tall

But only fools are "know-it-alls" and I played that fool for you

I cried and I cried

There were nights that died for you baby

I tried and I tried to deny that your love drove me crazy, baby

If the love that I got for you is gone

If the river I cried ain't that long

Then I'm wrong, yeah I'm wrong, this ain't a love song

Baby, I thought you and me would stand the test of time

Like we got away with the perfect crime but

We were just a legend in my mind

I guess that I was blind

Remember those nights dancing at the masquerade

The clowns wore smiles that wouldn't fade

You and I were the renegades, some things never change

It made me so mad 'cause I wanted it bad for us baby

Now it's so sad that whatever we had, ain't worth saving

If the love that I got for you is gone

If the river I've cried ain't that long

Then I'm wrong, yes I'm wrong, this ain't a love song

If the pain that I'm feeling so strong

Is the reason that I'm holding on

Then I'm wrong, yeah I'm wrong - this ain't a love song

I cried and I cried

There were nights that I died for you baby

I tried and I tried to deny that your love drove me crazy

If the love that I got for you is gone

If the river I cried ain't that long

Then I'm wrong, yeah I'm wrong - this ain't no love song

If the pain that I'm feeling so strong

Is the reason that I'm holding on

Then I'm wrong, yeah I'm wrong - this ain't a love song

If the pain that I'm feeling so strong

Is the reason that I'm holding on

Then I'm wrong, yeah I'm wrong - this ain't a love song

Yes, I'm wrong, yeah, I'm wrong - this ain't a love song

Yes, I'm wrong, yeah, I'm wrong - this ain't a love song

Yes, I'm wrong, yeah, I'm wrong - this ain't a love song

"These Days"

I was walking around, just a face in the crowd

Trying to keep myself out of the rain

Saw a vagabond king wear a styrofoam crown

Wondered if I might end up the same

There's a man out on the corner

Singing old songs about change

Everybody got their cross to bare, these days

She came looking for some shelter with a suitcase full of dreams

To a motel room on the boulevard

Guess she's trying to be James Dean

She's seen all the disciples and all the "wanna be's"

No one wants to be themselves these days

Still there's nothing to hold on to but these days

These days - the stars seem out of reach

These days - there ain't a ladder on these streets

These days - are fast, love don't last in this graceless age

There ain't nobody left but us these days

Jimmy shoes busted both his legs, trying to learn to fly

From a second story window, he just jumped and closed his eyes

His momma said he was crazy - he said momma "I've got to try"

Don't you know that all my heroes died

And I guess I'd rather die than fade away

These days - the stars seem out of reach

But these days - there ain't a ladder on these streets

These days are fast, love don't lasts-in this graceless age

Even innocence has caught the morning train

And there ain't nobody left but us these days

I know Rome's still burning

Though the times have changed

This world keepd turning round and round and round and round

These days

These days - the stars seem out of reach

But these days - there ain't a ladder on these streets

These days are fast, love don't lasts-in this graceless age

Even innocence has caught the morning train

And there ain't nobody left but us these days

These days - the stars seem out of reach

These days - there ain't a ladder on these streets

These days - are fast, nothing lasts

There ain't no time to waste

There ain't nobody left to take the blame

There ain't nobody left but us these days

"My Guitar Lies Bleeding In My Arms"

Misery likes company, I like the way that sounds

I've been trying to find the meaning, so I can write it down

Staring out the window, it's such a long way down

I'd like to jump, but I'm afraid to hit the ground

I can't write a love song the way I feel today

I can't sing no song of hope, I got nothing to say

Life is feeling kind of strange, since you went away

I sing this song to you wherever you are

As my guitar lies bleeding in my arms

I'm tired of watching TV, it makes me ant to scream

Outside the world is burning, man it's so hard to belive

Each day you know you're dying from the cradle to the grave

I get so numb sometimes, that I can't feel the pain

I can't write a love song the way I feel today

I can't sing no song of hope I've got nothing to say

Life is feeling kind of strange, it's strange enough these days

I send this song to you, whoever you are

As my guitar lies bleeding in my arms

Staring at the paper, I don't know what to write

I'll have my last cigarette-well, turn out the lights

Maybe tomorrow I'll fell a different way

But here im my delusion , I don't know what to say

I can't write a love song the way I feel today

I can't sing no song of hope I've got nothing to save

And I can't fight the feelings buried in my brains

I send this song to you, whoever you are

As my guitar lies bleeding

"Lie To Me"

Rumour has it that your daddy's coming down

He's gonna pay the rent

Tell me baby, is this as good as life is gonna get

It feels like there's a stronger standing in these shoes

But, I know I can't lose me, 'cause then I'd be losing you

I know I promised baby

I would be the one to make our dreams come true

I ain't too proud of all the struggles

And the hard times we've been through

When this cold world comes between us

Please tell me you'll be brave

'Cause I can realize the danger when forgiveness fades away

If you don't love me - lie to me

'Cause baby you're the one thing I believe

Let it all fall down around us, if that's what's meant to be

Right now if you don't love me baby - lie to me

Pour another cup of coffee

Babe I got something to say to you

I ain't got the winning ticket

Not the one that's gonna pull us through

No one said that it'd be easy

Let your old man take you home

But know that if you walk out on me that darling

I'd be gone

If you don't love me - lie to me

'Cause baby you're the one thing I believe

Let it all fall down around us, if that's what's meant to be

Right now if you can't love me baby - lie to me

Baby, I can take it

It's a bitch, but life's a roller coaster ride

The ups and downs will make you scream sometimes

It's hard believing that the thrill is gone

But we got to go around again, so let's hold on

If you don't love me - lie to me

'Cause baby you're the one thing I believe

Let it all fall down around us

If that's what's meant to be

Right now if you can't love me baby - lie to me

Lie to me

Baby, I can take it

C'mon lie to me

"Bitter Wine"

We met some time ago, when we were almost young

It never crossed my mind to ask, where did you come from?

I didn't have much money, so I stole you a rose

You were dressed like an orphan, in Salvation Army clothes

Once you were my inspiration, but, that river's run dry

What was once holy water, tastes like bitter wine

I know I wasn't funny, but you laughed at all my jokes

When I was chaking on the words to say

You shoved your finger down my throat

The first night I said I loved you, you told me to go to hell

You were giving he head, on that creeky

Old bed at the Ol'Duvol Motel

Once you were my inspiration, but, that river's run dry

What was once holy water, tastes like bitter wine

Once you were my inspiration, but, that river's run dry

What was once holy water, tastes like bitter wine

I would drink of your river, it would always get me high

What was once my salvation, now tastes like bitter wine

I never thought I'd love ya, no - I'd rather go blind

I thought I saw the future, but the fortune teller lied

I guess she lied

Just like everything, even good love has to die

Ain't no sympathy when it waves goodbye, no one even cried

We were one of a kind

I would drink of your river, it would always get me high

What was once my salvation, now tastes like bitter wine

I never thought I'd love ya, no - I'd rather go blind

I thought I saw the future, but the fortune teller lied

I guess she lied

"It's My Life"

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted

No silent prayer for the faith-departed

I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd

You're gonna hear my voice

When I shout it out loud

Chorus:

It's my life

It's now or never

I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive

(It's my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said

I did it my way

I just wanna live while I'm alive

It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground

For Tommy and Gina who never backed down

Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake

Luck ain't even lucky

Got to make your own breaks

Chorus:

It's my life

And it's now or never

I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive

(It's my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said

I did it my way

I just want to live while I'm alive

'Cause it's my life

Better stand tall when they're calling you out

Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

Chorus:

It's my life

And it's now or never

'Cause I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive

(It's my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said

I did it my way

I just want to live while I'm alive

Chorus:

It's my life

And it's now or never

'Cause I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive

(It's my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said

I did it my way

I just want to live while I'm alive

'Cause it's my life!

"Queen Of New Orleans"

She said: "Baby our love's just like your songs

The beat ain't bad but the words are all wrong

It's time to pack my bags, it's time to just move on"

She sang: "Johnny, I'm gone, gone, gone"

And she was gone, yeah

Me and Leigh met summer of '95

In a burgundy dress lookin' finer than a French wine

A Cajun queen with another side

She was a schoolboy's dream, I was out of my mind

She was lookin' fine

She said: "You wanna drive me home"

But what I didn't know ......

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) I was dancing with the Queen of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing in the streets of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing cheek to cheek in New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) it was almost like a dream (almost like a dream)

That night I made my move

Man I fell hard when I put my hands in her cookie jar

She was more than a girl, she was a cabaret star

I was a deer in the lights of a speeding car

Nothing's what it seems, she was a Venus De Milo in her sister's jeans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) I was dancing with the Queen of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing in the streets of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing cheek to cheek in New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) it was almost like a dream (almost like a dream)

[Guitar solo]

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) I was dancing with the Queen of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing in the streets of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) I was dancing cheek to cheek in New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with the Queen down Bourbon Street

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with the Queen of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing in the streets of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) nothing's what it seems in New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with the Queen of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with a Queen of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with the Queen of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with the Queen of New Orleans

"Midnight In Chelsea"

The kids round here look just like sticks

They trade old licks with a beat up six

I just smile and catch the groove

Gothic girls all dressed in black

Serious as heart attacks

Takes a little bit of getting used to

The old man with the whisky stains

Lost the night, forgot his name

His poor wife will sleep alone again

And it ain't hard to understand

Why she's holding onto her own hand

It's midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)

Midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)

No one's asking me for favors (shalalala, shalala)

No one's looking for a savior

They're too busy ... saving me (shalalala, shalala)

I've seen a lone sloane ranger drive

Seems her chauffeur took a dive

And sold her secrets to the Sun

And later in a magazine

I finally figured what it means

To be a saint, not a queen

Two lustful lovers catch a spark

Chase their shadows in the dark

Someone's getting off tonight

A big red bus that's packed so tight disappears in a trail of light

Somewhere someone's dreaming baby it's alright....

It's midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)

Midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)

No one's asking me for favors (shalalala, shalala)

No one's looking for a savior

They're too busy saving me (shalalala, shalala)

(shalalala, shalala)

Midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)

No one's pinned their dreams on me

No one's asking me to bleed

I'm the man I wanna be

When Chelsea girls sing

Shalalala, shalalala

Shalalala, shalala, oh

Shalalala, shalalala

Shalalala, shalala, oh, oh ...

It's morning when I go to sleep

In the distant dawn a church bell rings

Another day is coming on

A baby's born, an old man dies

Somewhere young lovers kiss good bye

I leave my soul and just move on

And wish that I was there to sing this song

[Guitar solo]

(shalalala, shalala)

(shalalala, shalala)

It's midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)

Oh, midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)

No one's asking me for favors (shalalala, shalala)

No one's looking for a savior

They're too busy saving me (shalalala, shalala)

It's midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala) woh (shalalala, shalala) yeah

No one's pinned their dreams on me

No one's asking me to bleed

I'm the man I wanna be

The man I wanna be, the man I wanna be (shalalala, shalala)

Midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala...)

"Destination Anywhere"

Hey babe, it's me parked outside your house

I know that he's asleep, so listen to me now

Darlin', I'm tired of living just in your dreams

I'm getting out

You know we both sold our souls

We're just growing old in this sleepy, dead-end town

Destination anywhere - Name the place, I'll be there

Pack a bag and we're out of here - let's run

Baby, we both been running uphill for too long

We both settled for something, got nothing

And we both know that it's wrong

Go on admit it if we lived it

I'm leaving, get your boots and come on

I've got my coat and my keys

I need you next to me then I'm gone, come on

Destination anywhere - Name the place and I'll be there

Pack a bag and we're out of here - let's run

Destination anywhere - Left or right, I don't care

Baby we'll just disappear like the sun, ooh...

[Guitar solo]

When these wheels spin, baby they can all eat our dust

As far as I'm concerned, this whole town lost its nuts

We won't be here when they put us down

It's our big chance, I'm calling you now

They'll never let us go unless we try

I'm tired of living just to die

We're getting out of here, destination anywhere

Destination anywhere - Name the place and I'll be there

Pack a bag and we're out of here - let's run

Destination anywhere - Left or right, I don't care

Maybe we'll just disappear chase the sun

Come on, come on, come on

"You Give Love A Bad Name"

An angel's smile is what you sell

You promise me heaven, then put me through hell

Chains of love got a hold on me

When passion's a prison, you can't break free

You're a loaded gun

There's nowhere to run

No one can save me

The damage is done

[Chorus:]

Shot through the heart

And you're to blame

You give love a bad name

I play my part and you play your game

You give love a bad name

You give love a bad name

Paint your smile on your lips

Blood red nails on your fingertips

A school boy's dream, you act so shy

Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye

You're a loaded gun

There's nowhere to run

No one can save me

The damage is done

[Chorus]

"Keep The Faith"

Mother mother tell your children

That their time has just begun

I have suffered for my anger

There are wars that can't be won

Father father please believe me

I am laying down my guns

I am broken like an arrow

Forgive me

Forgive your wayward son

Everybody needs somebody to love

(mother, mother)

Everybody needs somebody to hate

(please believe me)

Everybody's bitching

'cause they can't get enough

And it's hard to hold on

When there's no one to lean on

Faith: you know you're gonna live thru the rain

Lord you got to keep the faith

Faith: don't let your love turn to hate

Right now we got to

Keep the faith

Keep the faith

Keep the faith

Lord we got to keep the faith

Tell me baby when I hurt you

Do you keep it all inside

Do you tell me al's forgiven

And just hide behind your pride

Everybody needs somebody to love

(mother, father)

Everybody needs somebody to hate

(please don't leave me)

Everybody's bleeding

'cause the times are tough

Well it's hard to be strong

When there's no one to dream on

Faith: you know you're gonna live thru the rain

Lord you got to keep the faith

Now you know is not too late

Oh you got to keep the faith

Faith: don't let your love turn to hate

Right now we got to

Keep the faith

Keep the faith

Keep the faith

Lord we got to keep the faith

Walking in the footsteps

Of society's lies

I don't like what I see no more

Sometimes I wish that I was blind

Sometimes I wait forever

To stand out in the rain

So no one sees me cryin'

Trying to wash away the pain

Mother father

There's things I've done I can't erase

Every night we fall from grace

It's hard with the world in yours face

Trying to hold on, trying to hold on

Faith: you know you're gonna live thru the rain

Lord you got to keep the faith

Faith: don't let your love turn to hate

Right now we got to keep the faith

Faith: now it's not too late

Try to hold on, trying to hold on

Keep the faith

"Blaze Of Glory"

I wake up in the morning

And I raise my weary head

I got an old coat for a pillow

And the earth was last night's bed

I don't know where I'm going

Only God knows where I've been

I'm a devil on the run

A six gun lover

A candle in the wind

When you're brought into this world

They say you're born in sin

Well at least they gave me something

I didn't have to steal or have to win

Well they tell me that I'm wanted

Yeah I'm a wanted man

I'm colt in your stable

I'm what Cain was to Abel

Mister catch me if you can

I'm going down in a blaze of glory

Take me now but know the truth

I'm going down in a blaze of glory

Lord I never drew first

But I drew first blood

I'm no one's son

Call me young gun

You ask about my consience

And I offer you my soul

You ask If I'll grow to be a wise man

Well I ask if I'll grow old

You ask me if I known love

And what it's like to sing songs in the rain

Well,I've seen love come

And I've seen it shot down

I've seen it die in vain

Shot down in a blaze of glory

Take me now but know the truth

'Cause I'm going down in a blaze of glory

Lord I never drew first

But I drew first blood

I'm the devil's son

Call me young gun

Each night I go to bed

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

No I ain't looking for forgiveness

But before I'm six foot deep

Lord,I got to ask a favor

And I'll hope you'll understand

'Cause I've lived life to the fullest

Let the boy die like a man

Staring down the bullet

Let me make my final stand

Shot down in a blaze of glory

Take me now but know the truth

I'm going out in a blaze of glory

Lord I never drew first

But I drew first blood

and I'm no one's son

Call me young gun

I'm a young gun

"Bed Of Roses"

Sitting here wasted and wounded

at this old piano

Trying hard to capture

the moment this morning I don't know

'Cause a bottle of vodka

is still lodged in my head

And some blond gave me nightmares

I think she's still in my bed

As I dream about movies

they won't make of me when I'm dead

With an ironclad fist I wake up and

French kiss the morning

While some marching band keeps

its own beat in my head

While we're talking

About all of the things that I long to believe

About love and the truth and

what you mean to me

And the truth is baby you're all that I need

I want to lay you on a bed of roses

For tonite I sleep on a bed on nails

I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is

And lay you down on bed of roses

Well I'm so far away

That each step that I take is on my way home

A king's ransom in dimes I'd given each night

Just to see through this payphone

Still I run out of time

Or it's hard to get through

Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you

I'll just close my eyes and whisper,

baby blind love is true

I want to lay you down on a bed of roses

For tonite I sleep on a bed on nails

I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is

And lay you down on bed of roses

The hotel bar hangover whiskey's gone dry

The barkeeper's wig's crooked

And she's giving me the eye

I might have said yeah

But I laughed so hard I think I died

When you close your eyes

Know I'll be thinking about you

While my mistress she calls me

To stand in her spotlight again

Tonite I won't be alone

But you know that don't

Mean I'm not lonely I've got nothing to prove

For it's you that I'd die to defend

I want to lay you down on a bed of roses

For tonite I sleep on a bed on nails

I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is

And lay you down on bed of roses

"Always"

This romeo is bleeding

But you can't see his blood

It's nothing but some feelings

That this old dog kicked up

It's been raining since you left me

Now I'm drowning in the flood

You see I've always been a fighter

But without you I give up

Now I can't sing a love song

Like the way it's meant to be

Well, I guess I'm not that good anymore

But baby, that's just me

And I will love you, baby - Always

And I'll be there forever and a day - Always

I'll be there till the stars don't shine

Till the heavens burst and

The words don't rhyme

And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind

And I'll love you - Always

Now your pictures that you left behind

Are just memories of a different life

Some that made us laugh, some that made us cry

One that made you have to say goodbye

What I'd give to run my fingers through your hair

To touch your lips, to hold you near

When you say your prayers try to understand

I've made mistakes, I'm just a man

When he holds you close, when he pulls you near

When he says the words you've been needing to hear

I'll wish I was him 'cause those words are mine

To say to you till the end of time

Yeah, I will love you baby - Always

And I'll be there forever and a day - Always

If you told me to cry for you

I could

If you told me to die for you

I would

Take a look at my face

There's no price I won't pay

To say these words to you

Well, there ain't no luck

In these loaded dice

But baby if you give me just one more try

We can pack up our old dreams

And our old lives

We'll find a place where the sun still shines

And I will love you, baby - Always

And I'll be there forever and a day - Always

I'll be there till the stars don't shine

Till the heavens burst and

The words don't rhyme

And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind

And I'll love you - Always

"Bad Medicine"

I ain't got a fever got a permanent disease

It'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy

I got lots of money but it isn't what I need

Gonna take more than a shot to get this poison out of me

I got all the symptoms count 'em 1,2,3

First I need

That's what you get for falling in love

Then you bleed

You get a little but it's never enough

On your knees

That's what you get for falling in love

And now this boy's addicted cause your kiss is the drug

Your love is like bad madicine

Bad medicine is what I need

Shake it up, just like bad madicine

There ain't no doctor that can

Cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine

Bad, bad medicine

I don't need no needle

To be diving me a thrill

And I don't need no anesthesia

Or a nurse to bring a pill

I got a dirty down addition

It doesn't leave a track

I got a jone for your affection

Like a money on my back

There ain't no paramedic

Gonna save this heart attack

When you need

That's what you get for falling in love

Then you bleed

You get a little but it's never enough

On your knees

That's what you get for falling in love

Now I'm addicted and your kiss is the drug

Your love is like bad madicine

Bad medicine is what I need

Shake it up, just like bad madicine

So let's play doctor, baby

Cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine

Bad, bad medicine

[Solo]

I need a respirator cause I'm running out of breath

You're an all night generator wrapped is stockings and a dress

When you find your medicine you take what you can get

Cause if there's something better baby well thay haven't found it yet

Your love is like bad madicine

Bad medicine is what I need

Shake it up, just like bad madicine

There ain't no doctor that can

Cure my disease

Your love is like bad madicine

Bad medicine is what I need

Shake it up, just like bad madicine

Your love's the potion that

Can cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine

Bad, bad medicine

"Wanted Dead Or Alive"

It's all the same, only the names will change

Everyday it seems we're wasting away

Another place where the faces are so cold

I'd drive all night just to get back home

[Chorus:]

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride

I'm wanted dead or alive

Wanted dead or alive

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days

And the people I meet always go their separate ways

Sometimes you tell the day

By the bottle that you drink

And times when you're all alone all you do is think

[Chorus]

I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back

I play for keeps, 'cause I might not make it back

I been everywhere, still I'm standing tall

I've seen a million faces an I've rocked them all

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride

I'm wanted dead or alive

I'm a cowboy, I got the night on my side

I'm wanted dead or alive

Wanted dead or alive
