Track Name: The Truck Stops Here
Tonight on your door step

Worry on your face

You must have heard rumors

That I dont stay

Well my restless days are all history

Where you are is where Im gonna be



Chorus: THE TRUCK STOPS HERE thats as far as it goes

At the end of my day youre the end of my road

Til Im holdin you close Im gonna keep it in gear

THE TRUCK STOPS HERE



I dont need that highway

That I used to know

Cause darlin you take me

Where I want to go

Just look out your window

At that Chevy in your drive

Coverin that oilspot every night


Chorus: Repeat


Mile by mile year after year

Comin or goin my destinations clear



Chorus: THE TRUCK STOPS HERE thats as far as it goes

At the end of my day youre the end of my road

Til Im holdin you close Im gonna keep it in gear

THE TRUCK STOPS HERE
Track Name: Eagle Over Angel
I'm sure you don't remember me Its been a while I know
You put this tattoo my arm A long long time ago
The last time I was in your shop She was sitting by my side
The girl that I called Angel But her love for me has died

Chorus
So, put an eagle over angel Put a teardrop in his eye
And I'll just look the other way And try hard not to cry
Put an eagle over angel Spread his wings so he can fly
To a place where hearts aren't broken And no one says goodbye

You put her sweet name on my arm With a tiny heart below
But it lasted longer than her love Now she's gone for good I know
For years I wore my Angel's name Always happy to explain
But when they ask about her now I just can't stand the pain

Chorus
So, put an eagle over angel Put a teardrop in his eye
And I'll just look the other way And try hard not to cry
Put an eagle over angel Spread his wings so he can fly
To a place where hearts aren't broken And no one says goodbye
Track Name: Between Mason & Dickson
BETWEEN MASON AND DICKSON



Beside me, she stirs softly, as I slowly crawl out’ta bed

An’ stumble through the dark, tryin’ hard not to wake the kids

Quick shave and shower, warmin’ up the old Freightliner

Ain’t got much time to be a father an’ no time left for her



Between Mason, Ohio and Dickson, Tennessee

Caught between hard rock and southern country harmony

Leavin’ before first light an’ getting home way too late

Hours take their toll, eighteen wheels roll on the concrete interstate



Weekend comes her city job’ s done an’ the kids are out’ta school

But I’ll be gone on a local run to meet risin’ cost of rent an’ fuel

Sunday morning, I sleep in, she’ll take the kids to church an’ pray

In the evening we won’t fight again over too much work an’ no play



Between Mason, Ohio and Dickson, Tennessee

Caught between hard rock and southern country harmony

Leavin’ before first light an’ getting home way too late

Hours take their toll, eighteen wheels roll on the concrete interstate



They say Jesus died for everyone; red n’ blue, blue n’ gray

But lately it seems I’m on the losin’ side of barely gettin’ by day to day



Between Mason, Ohio and Dickson, Tennessee

Caught between hard rock and southern country harmony

Leavin’ before first light an’ getting home way too late

Hours take their toll, eighteen wheels roll on the concrete interstate

Hours take their toll, eighteen wheels roll on the concrete interstate



An’ Lord I pray someday, some way I’ll be free

Caught between hard rock and southern country harmony

Track Name: I Pray There's A Honkytonk In Heaven
I PRAY THERE’S A HONKYTONK IN HEAVEN



VERSE


THEY SAY THIS PLACE WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME IF I DON’T GET OUT OF HERE
BUT I LIKE ROMANCIN’ LOVE SLOW DANCIN’ IN A NEON ATMOSPHERE
I’M ON CLOUD NINE EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT WITH AN ANGEL BY MY SIDE
I’VE HEARD YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU WHEN YOU GO SO WHEN I KISS THIS WORLD GOOD-BYE




CHORUS


I PRAY THERE’S A HONKYTONK IN HEAVEN
‘CAUSE IT WOULD BE A SIN TO LEAVE TO LEAVE THESE GOOD TIMES BEHIND
I PRAY THERE’S A HONKYTONK IN HEAVEN
SO I CAN LIVE IT UP WHEN I DIE


INST.

BRIDGE


TONIGHT I’LL LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP AND PRAY THE LORD MY SOUL TO KEEP
IF I SHOULD DRAW MY FINAL BREATH LET THIS BE MY LAST REQUEST


CHORUS

I PRAY THERE’S A HONKYTONK IN HEAVEN
‘CAUSE IT WOULD BE A SIN TO LEAVE THESE GOOD TIMES BEHIND

I PRAY THERE’S A HONKYTONK IN HEAVEN
SO I CAN LIVE IT UP WHEN I DIE

REPEAT CHORUS

TAG
I WANNA LIVE IT UP BUT ONE LIFE JUST AIN’T ENOUGH
SO LORD LET ME LIVE IT UP WHEN I DIE
