TUMBLEWEED ROAD

[V1]

THE TOWN I’M FROM YOU HAD TO GROW UP FAST, OR YOU’D PROB’LY NEVER GROW UP AT ALL…

WELL I WAS JUST SIXTEEN YEARS OLD, WHEN I FIRST HEARD THE HIGHWAY CALL…

I DIDN’T KNOW WHY IT PULLED ME SO STRONG,

I COULD HEAR THE TRUCKS RUNNIN’ ALL NIGHT LONG,

I KNEW THERE WAS SOMEPLACE ELSE WHERE I BELONGED,

ON THE TUMBLEWEED ROAD

 

[V2]

THERE WAS NOTHIN’ FOR A GIRL IN TONOPAH, ‘CEPT TO GET OLD AND BE A MINER’S WIFE…

AND FOR A GIRL LIKE ME WELL THAT’D BE, LIKE SERVIN’ TWENTY YEARS TO LIFE…

SO I FILLED UP THE TANK IN MY FIREBIRD,

I PULLED OUT QUIET, DIDN’T SAY A WORD,

I HIT THAT INTERSTATE AND REVED IT UP IN THIRD,

ON THE TUMBLEWEED ROAD

 

[V3]

WELL I GOT TO RENO AND I WENT DOWNTOWN, DRESSED LIKE A HOLLYWOOD STAR…

ONE GOOD THING MY DADDY TAUGHT ME WAS A SURE WAY OF COUNTING CARDS…

THE GUYS AT THE TABLE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT HIT ‘EM,

I CASHED OUT BIG, AND I LEFT ‘EM THERE SITTIN,

I BLEW ‘EM A KISS,  SAID I WAS HEADED TO A NEW ZIP CODE,

ON THE TUMBLEWEED ROAD

 

[V4]

WELL I MADE BOISE ON A WING AND A PRAYER, AND MY FIREBIRD WAS RUNNIN’ BAD…

SO I PULLED INTO A MERCEDES DEALER, AND GAVE IT EVERYTHING I HAD…

I SWEETLY ASKED IF I COULD TAKE A TEST DRIVE,

THE MAN SAID SURE, JUST BE BACK BY FIVE,

I BLEW HIM A KISS AND SOON I WAS DOING SEVENTY-FIVE,

DOWN THE TUMBLEWEED ROAD

 

[V5]

I’M OLDER NOW AND KIND OF SETTLED DOWN, I USUALLY WALK A PRETTY STRAIGHT LINE…

BUT SOMETIMES I GOTTA GET ON THE ROAD, WHEN I’M FEELIN’ LIKE I’M RUNNIN OUT OF TIME…

AND EVERY MILE OF HIGHWAY IN MY REARVIEW,

FEELS JUST LIKE A KISS FROM SOMEBODY NEW,

FOR A LITTLE WHILE THE WORLD IS SPINNIN’ TRUE,

ON THE TUMBLEWEED ROAD

RED SUN SINKING

 

[V1]

RED SUN SINKING, PULLING DOWN A PURPLE SKY…

IT MUST HAVE GOT TIRED OF SHINING, SO AM I…

HE’S SITTING UNDER THE VERY SAME SUNSET, JUST ACROSS THE BAY,

IT MIGHT AS WELL BE A THOUSAND MILES AWAY

 

[V2]

FOG’S ROLLIN’ IN, FIRE’S BURNING LOW…

FISHING BOATS ON THE WATER, MOVING SLOW…

AT LEAST THEY’RE HEADED SOMEWHER, IT’S MORE THAN I CAN SAY FOR ME,

IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN EASY TO SET HIM FREE

 

[INST]

 

[V3]

RED SUN SINKING, PULLING ME OUT WITH THE TIDE…

I WISH I COULD FOLLOW IT DOWN , TO THE OTHER SIDE…

I’VE SPENT MY WHOLE LIFE RUNNIN’, FROM WHAT I JUST THREW AWAY,

RED SUN SINKING, TO HIM IT’S JUST ANOTHER DAY,

RED SUN SINKING, I GUESS IT’S JUST ANOTHER DAY

READY FOR BREAKING

 

[V 1]

 I’VE SEEN YOU WATCHING ME, FROM ACROSS THE ROOM…

YOU THINK I DON’T NOTICE YOU, I’VE BEEN WATCHING YOU TOO…

IF YOU WANT TO GET TO ME, LET IT SHOW…

I MIGHT BE THE ONE FOR YOU, AND YOU’D NEVER KNOW…

 

    [CHORUS ]

   I GET THE FEELING YOU’LL BE NOTHIN’ BUT TROUBLE,

   WHATEVER YOU’RE DEALIN’, I CAN TAKE DOUBLE,

   ‘CUZ I GOT A GOOD THING HERE FOR THE TAKING,

    I GOT A HEART, READY FOR BREAKING…  

 

[V2]

SOME GUYS WILL WASTE YOUR TIME, WITH THE GAMES THEY MAKE…

THEY’LL JUST GET YOU HOOKED ON A LINE, AND THROW YOU BACK IN THE LAKE…

I’VE BEEN AROUND THE BLOCK, AND I’VE BEEN BURNED…

AND IF IT DON’T KILL YOU IT JUST MAKES YOU STRONGER, THAT’S WHAT I’VE LEARNED

 

   [REPEAT CHORUS]

 

   [BRIDGE]

   I DON’T KNOW WHY, SOME GIRLS CRY, WHEN IT’S TIME TO SAY GOODBYE…

   WELL I SWEAR I AIN’T THAT KIND…

 

   [INSTRUMENTAL OVER VERSE]

I GO BLIND

 

[V 1]

WELL I HEARD THAT SHE HAD A RESTAURANT, DROVE A LITTLE HOT ROD COUPE,

BUT I FOUND OUT SHE WAS A COCKTAIL WAITRESS, AND DRIVES A LITTLE SUBARU

BUT THAT’S ALL RIGHT, I DON’T MIND…

WHEN I’M IN LOVE, I GO BLIND…

 

[V2]

WELL I THOUGHT SHE HAD A BIG HOUSE ON A HILL, A LOT OF MONEY THAT SHE HAD SAVED,

BUT I MOVED INTO HER SINGLE WIDE TRAILER WITH A BUSTED MICROWAVE

BUT THAT’S ALL RIGHT, I DON’T MIND…

WHEN I’M IN LOVE, I GO BLIND…

 

[BRIDGE]

MY BABY DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ‘BOUT ME, I GO HOME EVERY NIGHT,

SHE LOOKS UP AT ME WITH THOSE BIG GREEN EYES, I KNOW SHE’S GONNA ROCK ME RIGHT….

 

[INSTRUMENTAL OVER VERSE]

 

[V3]  

WELL SHE DON’T LOOK LIKE THOSE SUPER MODELS, IN THEM MAGAZINES,

BUT I ALREADY FORGOT ALL ABOUT, EVERY OTHER WOMAN I’VE EVER SEEN

AND THAT’S ALL RIGHT, I DON’T MIND…

WHEN I’M IN LOVE, I GO BLIND…

COLORADO MAN

[V 1 -INTRO – SLOW]

SOME WOMEN WISH, THEY HAD A BIG DIAMOND RING, I GOT NO USE, FOR THAT KIND OF THING…

I GOT SOMETHING THAT’S HARDER TO FIND, THAN SOME LITTLE, SHINY STONE…..

[FAST]

I GOT CHICKENS IN THE YARD, A PLOW IN THE SHED, A COW NAMED BESSIE AND HOMEMADE BREAD,

BUT MOST OF ALL I’VE GOT A COLORADO MAN AT HOME…

 

[V2]

YOU SEE I ONCE HAD A GUY FROM THE SOUTH, BUT I COULD NEVER GET HIM UP OFF THE COUCH,

HE WOULDN’T GO TO WORK,  HE JUST LAID AROUND, LIKE SOME KIND OF PRINCE….

I GAVE HIM THE BOOT, HE SAID THAT AIN’T FAIR, I SAID DON’T YOU COME BACK TIL YOU GROW A PAIR,

HE HIT THE ROAD, AND I AIN’T SEEN HIM SINCE…. 

 

    [CHORUS ]

    I’VE GOT A COLORADO MAN WAITIN’ UP FOR ME,

    LIGHT OF THE WINDOW SHININ’ THROUGH THE TREES…

    WE GOT SO MANY STARS, WE CAN’T EVEN COUNT ‘EM,

    OUR LOVE IS BIGGER THAN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS…  

 

[V3]

I SAT NEXT TO A MAN ON A LATE NIGHT PLANE, HE SAID THAT HE WAS FLYIN’ HOME TO L.A.

HE SAID HE COULD MAKE ME A REAL BIG STAR IF I, WOULD  JUST TREAT HIM NICE…

I SAID I DON’T CARE IF YOU’RE A FAMOUS ACTOR,  CUZ  MY MAN KNOWS HOW TO REBUILD A TRACTOR,

SO KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF, OR I’LL TURN OUT YOUR LIGHTS…

 

[V4]

YOU SEE I ONCE HAD A GUY FROM SEATTLE, BUT IT JUST TURNED INTO ONE LONG BATTLE,

HE DRESSED NICE, AND HE WORE COLOGNE, AND HE, THOUGHT THAT HE WAS REAL SPORTY…

I SAID MAN I GOTTA GET ME SOME,  BREATHIN’ ROOM, IT SMELLS TO ME LIKE YOU’RE  WEARIN’ MY PERFUME,

WHAT REALLY TURNS ME ON IS A GUY WEARIN WD-40…

 

    [REPEAT CHORUS ]                                                             

 

[V5]

NOW GUYS FROM TEXAS, THEY’RE ALL RIGHT, BUT THEY TALK TOO MUCH AND STAY OUT ALL NIGHT,

AT LEAST THEY’RE PRETTY GOOD LOOKING, FROM, WHAT I CAN SEE…

BUT IF THEY SPENT A LITTLE LESS TIME IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR, A LITTLE MORE TIME OUT ROPIN’ STEERS,

MAYBE THEN THEY COULD IMPRESS A GIRL LIKE ME…                      

[REPEAT CHORUS]

SO PACK UP THE PICK- UP TRUCK, WE’RE LEAVIN’ TODAY…

 I TOLD MY BABY 

[V1]

WELL IT HAPPENED ONCE, I DEALT WITH IT TWICE

THE THIRD TIME I REALLY GOT THE BLUES

WHEN I HEARD THE NEWS I NEARLY BLEW MY FUSE

 

[CHORUS]

I TOLD MY BABY GET OUT TONIGHT

I THOUGHT I LOVED HER, BUT I SAW THE LIGHT

IF SHE AIN'T GONNA LOVE ME LIKE I HOPE SHE MIGHT

I'M GONNA FIND SOMEBODY GONNA TREAT ME RIGHT

 

[V2]

I'D WAKE UP IN THE MORNING AND I'D THINK OF YOU

THE TIMES I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT YOU WERE FAR BETWEEN AND FEW

BUT I JUST CAN'T BE LIVIN' THIS WAY NO MORE

I'M FINALLY STANDING UP 'CAUSE MY KNEES ARE SORE

 

[CHORUS]

I TOLD MY BABY GET OUT TONIGHT

I THOUGHT I LOVED HER, BUT I SAW THE LIGHT

IF SHE AIN'T GONNA LOVE ME LIKE I HOPE SHE MIGHT

I'M GONNA FIND SOMEBODY GONNA TREAT ME RIGHT

 

[SOLO]

 

[CHORUS]

I TOLD MY BABY GET OUT TONIGHT

I THOUGHT I LOVED HER, BUT I SAW THE LIGHT

IF SHE AIN'T GONNA LOVE ME LIKE I HOPE SHE MIGHT

I'M GONNA FIND SOMEBODY GONNA TREAT ME RIGHT

 

I TOLD MY BABY GET OUT THE DOOR

I KNOW I LOVED HER BUT I CAN'T NO MORE

SHE'S DRIVING ME MAD, YOU KNOW I FEEL SO BAD

‘CAUSE SHE WAS THE BEST THING I EVER HAD (ALMOST)

WHEN WE GET SIDEWAYS

 

[V1]

I KNOW IT'S HARD TO FORGIVE ME, FOR THE THINGS THAT I DO,

I NEVER MEANT TO HURT YOU BABY, I SWEAR IT'S TRUE,

BUT SOMETIMES I GET SIDEWAYS, I NEED YOUR LOVE TO PULL ME THROUGH....

 

[V2

I KNOW YOUR WORDS HURT ME, MAYBE I MISUNDERSTOOD,

YOU NEVER DID DESERT ME BABY, I KNOW YOUR INTENTIONS WERE GOOD,

BUT SOMETIMES YOU GET SIDEWAYS, YOU NEED MY LOVE TO PULL YOU THROUGH...

 

[BRIDGE]

WE'VE COME SO FAR, DOWN A LONG WINDING ROAD,

IF WE JUST HOLD EACH OTHER BABY, WE CAN CARRY ANY LOAD....

 

[SOLO]

 

[BRIDGE]

WE'VE COME SO FAR, DOWN A LONG WINDING ROAD,

IF WE JUST HOLD EACH OTHER BABY, WE CAN CARRY ANY LOAD....

 

[V3]

SO WHEN IT GETS ROUGH, AND WE GET A LITTLE CONFUSED,

WHEN WE GET OUR WIRES CROSSED, SOMEBODY BLOWS A FUSE,

WE GOT OUR LOVE TO PULL US THROUGH...

WE GOT OUR LOVE TO PULL US THROUGH...

TOUGH AS NAILS

 

[V1]

YOU KNOW THAT GIRL, SHE’S TOUGH AS NAILS,

I’VE  NEVER SEEN HER CRY…

IT WENT OFF THE RAILS, AND SHE DIDN’T EVEN TRY…

I KNOW I’LL MISS HER, IN A COUPLE OF DAYS,

SHE WON’T MISS ME AT ALL, IT’S BETTER THIS WAY…

 

[V2]

YOU KNOW THAT GIRL, SHE’S TOUGH AS NAILS,

SHE CAN TAKE A LOT OF PAIN…

SHE’LL WANT TO FIGHT THE WEATHER MAN, EVERY TIME IT RAINS…

SHE’LL FIGHT WITH A PINE TREE, IF IT GETS IN HER WAY,

I DON’T FIGHT HER ANYMORE, IT’S BETTER THIS WAY…

 

[BRIDGE]

WELL THERE’S GIVERS, THERE’S TAKERS,

THERE’S THEM WHO ARE BORN TO LOSE…

 IT DON’T TAKE MUCH TO MAKE HER,

PUT ON HER WALKIN’ SHOES…..

 

[INST]

 

[V3]

WELL THAT GIRL, SHE’S TOUGH AS NAILS,

I GUESS THAT’S ALRIGHT…

STARS UP IN THE SKY, ARE SHININ’ BRIGHT TONIGHT…

I WISH HIM GOOD LUCK, IT’S BETTER THIS WAY…
