Ain't No Living Fire halls, pool halls, dance halls and dives You'll know where to find me while I'm still alive Strumming along trying to survive I'll trade you a song for beer I sang that one but this don't feel the same I would have slowed dowm "Driving My Life Away" I gotta get going before I go insane Now let's get the hell out of here It's four tires on the road Four chords and a tale to be told Highways to barstools, ladies and lies It ain't no living it's my life Trying to hold me is like catching the rain You might get a piece but most slips away I'm out here chasing an old country song Lost in a dream drunk as George Jones It's four tires on the road Four chords and a tale to be told Highways to barstools, ladies and lies It ain't no living it's my life It's four tires on the road Four chords and a tale to be told Highways to barstools, ladies and lies It ain't no living it's my life It ain't no living it's my life

Tiny Anchors 04:51
Tiny Anchors Little things can fill up a room and make it feel so much smaller Little words spring from your lips without fail Pictures you held to your chest when you held our old memories fonder Are glimpses into a lifetime for sale Tiny anchors are holding her down Tied to her ankles and sank in the ground Pint-sized heartaches roll in by the score Tiny anchors I adore At times I see what appears like a sign you might still remember Those moments they hang in my head then for days The sign in the yard's looking worn it's been there since late last December Let's think this through, honey, why don't we stay Tiny anchors are holding her down Tied to her ankles and sank in the ground Pint-sized heartaches roll in by the score Tiny anchors I adore Now darling hang on with me Darling hang on with me Hang on with me Tiny anchors are holding her down Tied to her ankles and sank in the ground Those pint-sized heartaches roll in by the score Tiny anchors I adore Tiny anchors I adore Tiny anchors I adore

With Love from Brushy Mountain Don't pick up that guitar, boy, it'll only sterr you wrong And lead you down darker roads chasing some old song Find yourself a woman and try to settle down Pray that she don't break your heart and take to running 'round But if she does you better let her go Take it from someone who ought to know There ain't no light from Heaven can penetrate these walls Ghosts of men who came before echo down her halls The birds outside are singing a song ain't meant for me With love from Brushy Mountain Hell in Tennessee Now the Devil's in that bottle,son, just like your momma said He's come to warm your lust-filled heart and easy your worried head And if you need a friend, boy, he's easy to be found But when your back's against that wall he's bound to let you down You ought to know a good friend's hard to find Especially when a woman is on the line There ain't no light from Heaven can penetrate these walls Ghosts of men who came before echo down her halls The birds outside are singing a song ain't meant for me With love from Brushy Mountain Hell in Tennessee I loved her from the day we met like noone had ever loved And I would have fought and died for him if push had come to shove I found them in each other's arms the last night of their lives I bought a ticket to this mountain and this mountain's where I'll die Your momma had an empty heart, son, more than I could fill It's love that put here in the ground It's love that put me here I know I tore your whole wide world apart I hope that you might take these words to heart There ain't no light from Heaven can penetrate these walls Ghosts of men who came before echo down her halls The birds outside are singing a song ain't meant for me With love from Brushy Mountain Hell in Tennessee Now, the birds outside are singing a song ain't meant for me With love from Brushy Mountain Hell in Tennessee
