Track Name: Money for beer
We don’t raise money for nothing
We raise money for beer
We find a few songs to sing
If you’re willing to lend an ear

We don’t raise money for nothing
We raise money for beer
So let me grab my six string
Make sure there’s a bottle near

For sure we take requests
Sometimes we give ‘em back
We don’t love you any less
We’ll just play another track

No Freebird need apply
No Stairway to heaven
No Hallelujah from this guy
But I’ll turn up to eleven

We don’t raise money for nothing
We raise money for beer
There ain’t no way of knowing
When the cops will appear

We don’t raise money for nothing
We raise money for beer
Let’s get the party going
Make them frowns all disappear

For sure we take requests
Sometimes we give ‘em back
We don’t love you any less
We’ll just play another track

No Freebird need apply
No Stairway to heaven
No Hallelujah from this guy
But I’ll turn up to eleven

Sometimes the song is sad
‘Bout that love you never had
Sometimes the song is sweet
‘Bout that time in the backseat
Track Name: What the heck
Daddy said, son, it’s OK to hate the man
You don’t have to be his #1 fan
As long as you’re grateful for the work and for the check
Then my boy all I say is what the heck

Daddy said it’s OK to feel old
Cause life’s not always bout being bold
As long as you’re grateful for your health and what’s on deck
Then my boy all I say is what the heck

What the heck, do people find to moan about
What the heck, they’re born angry there’s no doubt
What the heck, take a minute and enjoy
That’s all I can teach you, my boy

Daddy said son, it’s OK to wanna quit
On the nights when your woman yelled and split
As long as you’re grateful for the times before the wreck
Then my boy all I say is what the heck

What the heck, do people find to moan about
What the heck, they’re born angry there’s no doubt
What the heck, take a minute and enjoy
That’s all I can teach you, my boy

I never went to school and they never called me cool
But I hope you will follow this simple rule

What the heck, do people find to moan about
What the heck, they’re born angry there’s no doubt
What the heck, take a minute and enjoy
That’s all I can teach you, my boy
Track Name: I don't like people like you
I don't like people like you
people like you are fake
I don't like people like you
because all you people ever do is take

You know, the rest of us,
we matter more than dust,
we make this world go round.

Meanwhile the lot of you
Whose words never ring true
You walk around like you deserve a crown

I don't like people like you
people like you are fake
I don't like people like you
because you people never own up to your mistake

You know the rest of us
we're actually worth the fuss
So why pretend we don't make a sound

Meanwhile the lot of you
And your selfish point of view
you are running us down to the ground

It's time you understand
that no one owns his land
What it's all about is it an open helping hand
Track Name: Davidson County

G Am
But life will never be the same

Am G
Driving into Davidson County
Am G
Wish you coulda made the trip with me
F Am
But you are needed where you are
G Am
And my new world is just too far
G Am
And my new world is just too far

F C
But I promised to write you letters
G Am
And you promised to read them all
I hope your mama will feel better
I hope you come and see me in the fall

Am G
Driving into Davidson County
Am G
It’s my first day in Tennessee
F Am
Stopped by the Cumberland River
G
Grateful the Lord is such a giver

F C
But I promised to write you letters
G Am
And you promised to read them all
I hope your mama will feel better
I hope you come and see me in the fall

You won’t be driving to Davidson County
I hear tell you got no love for me
I was away when your mama passed on
Now you think I should just stay gone
Now you think I should just stay gone

F C
But I promised to write you letters
G Am
And you promised to read them all
I know your mama won't feel better
Still wished you'd come see me in the fall
Track Name: The plan
The plan’s to drink this night away
The plan’s to say goodbye to yesterday
The plan’s to drink this night away
And to no longer feel black or blue or gray

You know I miss your conversation
The way you hugged me at the train station
I’ll miss the feel of you and how time flew
But most of all I still miss you

You know I miss our vacation
Our time away from this great nation
I miss the feel of you and close we grew
But most of all I still miss you

The plan’s to drink this night away
The plan’s to say goodbye to yesterday
The plan’s to drink this night away
And to no longer feel black or blue or gray

You know I miss your flirtation
And our nightly love exclamation
I miss the feel of you and the joy we knew
But most of all I still miss you

One bottle in and it’s not workin'
So far you win, let the drinkin’ begin
Track Name: Vodka in a closet
She keeps vodka in a closet behind rows of high heel shoes
She says she ain't no drunk she just got nothing left to lose

She goes to bed at night praying the Lord would bring her home
She wakes up in the morning hungover and alone

She was raised to be a beauty queen to only matter from the outside
Her mama said make sure your man is always satisfied

She said wait for a rich one, girl, don't bother with our kind
This ain't about true love, it's about not falling behind

And she lives in a mansion with strangers all around
But when it comes to passion her dreams have all but drowned
She would give it all for just one day
With someone by her side
A loving man who wasn’t buying a thing when he made her his bride

She tried picking up young men downtown in a singles bar
Just another night alone, and just another scar

Her old friends across town don’t understand why she complains
They see her crashing down but they don’t feel her pain

And she lives in a mansion with strangers all around
But when it comes to passion her dreams have all but drowned
She would give it all for just one day
With someone by her side
A loving man who wasn’t buying a thing when he made her his bride
Track Name: She's the love of my life
She's the love of my life but today, I'm saying goodbye
Wanted her for my wife but our love is a lie
She’s the love of my life right people wrong time
My heart sliced by her knife this love ain’t worth a dime

It all started so well, it was love at first sight
Put me under her spell, had no sleep that night
It all started so well, standing there by the sea
It all started so well, how could I foresee

She's the love of my life but today, I'm saying goodbye
Wanted her for my wife but our love is a lie
She’s the love of my life right people wrong time
My heart sliced by her knife this love ain’t worth a dime

I thought she was the one that I’d been looking for
I thought I had won like I’d never won before
I thought she was the one we’d grow old together
I thought she was the one, we’d be one forever

She's the love of my life but today, I'm saying goodbye
Wanted her for my wife but our love is a lie
She’s the love of my life right people wrong time
My heart sliced by her knife this love ain’t worth a dime
Track Name: The Captain
My mother married the Captain
It was destined to be love for a while
He would not shake my hand
And he would not crack a smile

My daddy served in the Army
And the Captain knew him from afar
When Daddy reached the end of his journey
The Captain didn’t have a single scar

Cuz cowards they lead from behind
Scared out of their mind
Cowards send others to die
That’s why they can’t look their kids in the eye

My mother married the Captain
While she still felt pretty and young
But fear is what she was all wrapped in
And she forgot about right and wrong

They sent me and brother away
To school in some foreign land
The Captain wanted us out of the way
My mother obeyed his command

Cuz cowards they lead from behind
Scared out of their mind
Cowards send others to die
That’s why they can’t look their kids in the eye

My mother she married the Captain
And she saw him be lowered in the ground
She didn’t listen to the Chaplain
It wasn’t her first go ‘round

The Captain was caught with another man’s wife
With his hands in her cookie jar
He died at the point of a knife
I guess he got his first scar

CHORUS

My mother married the Captain
It was destined to be love for a while
Track Name: Together Forever
I don’t wanna know how the story ends
And I don't wanna know where the road bends
I just wanna know that when its my time to go
On that very day I'll be able to say

That I lived for my woman
And we lived for love
And we hoped for Heaven
And grace from above

We made our way
Being each other's Rock
Together we pray
For more time on the clock
In this world together
In the next forever

We have our kids and a grand daughter too
You could say we've been blessed a time or two
Some folks have more money but I know already
That on my last day I'll be able to say

That I lived for my woman
And we lived for love
And we hoped for Heaven
And grace from above

We made our way
Being each other's Rock
Together we pray
For more time on the clock
In this world together
In the next forever
Track Name: I'm guilty
I’m guilty, I’ve been hiding, in the place the heart can’t see
I’m guilty, I’ve been hiding, from the people who love me
And the words unsaid, and the love long dead
They poison my days, and they set me ablaze
As I hide deep in the maze

I’m guilty, I’ve been hiding, I pretend to be happy
I’m guilty, I’ve been hiding, behind the man that I can’t be
There’s dreams we shred, I live yours instead
They poison my days, and they set me ablaze
As I hide deep in the maze

Set me free

I’m guilty, I’ve been hiding, I pretend that life is free
I’m guilty, I’ve been hiding, when in all actuality
There’s times I dread, and lies I spread
They poison my days, and they set me ablaze
As I hide deep in the maze

Set me free

We can change the way our lives unfold
Rearrange the way the story’s told

I’m guilty, I’ve been hiding, in the place the heart can’t see
I’m guilty, I’ve been hiding, from the people who love me
And the words unsaid, and the love long dead
They poison my days, and they set me ablaze
As I hide deep in the maze
