Track Name: Picking Up The Pieces
I’m sorry that you had to hang around with me
I was a no good woman with a wore out ring
trouble always seemed to come ‘round my door
and when it got me out, I went lookin’ for more

I know you don’t wanna hear the same old things
but I’m getting it together up in Bowling Green
I ain’t done much in this whole life 
but when you found me babe, I was another man’s wife

well, I can’t take back the things I’ve done
always looking for new ways to run
just to find myself in the middle of the road
picking up the pieces that I just let go

spent my nights a-drinkin’ in a Warren bar
taking sips of bourbon from a mason jar
wearing out my welcome every place I strayed
so I packed my things and I stole away

well, I made to the chapel come the morning light
thought I’d ask the Lord above to leave my sins behind
but the preacher man said that ain’t the way to go
‘cause even Jesus Christ can’t ever save my soul

well, I can’t take back the things I’ve done
always looking for new ways to run
just to find myself in the middle of the road
picking up the pieces that I just let go

no, I can’t take back the things I’ve done
always looking for new ways to run
just to find myself in the middle of the road
picking up the pieces that I just let go
Track Name: Roy Rogers
well, he thought he was a real Roy Rogers
riding high in them cowboy plains
but he ain’t ever seen no saddle
and he ain’t ever held no reins

he wants to be a country western singer
go on about his outlaw ways
but he ain’t gonna get no better
if he ain’t got no back to break

oh yeah, the highway
it ain’t the right way
it ain’t the only way
to get around

you can’t pretend, son
‘bout where you’ve been, son
‘cause in the end
it’ll only bring you down

he better watch on the ground he’s walkin’
if he ain’t got his own set of roots
‘cause any wanderin’ soul can get a cowboy hat
and any fool can wear a pair of boots

now he says he wants to move to Nashville
and make his home on that music row
but if he’s singing ‘bout a life that he ain’t ever had
he better find another place to go

oh yeah, the highway
it ain’t the right way
it ain’t the only way
to get around

you can’t pretend, son
‘bout where you’ve been, son
‘cause in the end
it’ll only bring you down

yeah, in the end
it’ll only bring you down
Track Name: Days Like These
came home today with a tear in my eye
wishin' I'd punched that old clock my last time
boy I sure hate, to let it get me down this way
but this old life just ain't a game that I play

it's days like these, when I've got it all wrong
working for what, til the feeling's all gone
it ain't worth the fight, I know that much is true
but it's days like these I don't know what to do
it's days like these I don't know what to do

I've never been lost, but I've never been found
doing what they say, with both feet on the ground
well, God only knows what I may have store
but I know that there's got, there must be something more

it's days like these, when I've got it all wrong
working for what, til the feeling's all gone
it ain't worth the fight, I know that much is true
but it's days like these I don't know what to do
it's days like these I don't know what to do

day has run long, I'm tired and spent
can't tell if this life is the one that I'm meant
tried to find peace on a street headin' south
when I get there I'll see what this pain's all about

it's days like these, when I've got it all wrong
working for what, til the feeling's all gone
it ain't worth the fight, I know that much is true
but it's days like these I don't know what to do
it's days like these I don't know what to do
Track Name: Started Drinking Whiskey Again
I started drinking whiskey again
I went and threw myself back in
I said I was through, but I guess that ain’t true
‘cause I started drinking whiskey again

I really liked to drink my wine
it really helped to ease my mind
but it couldn’t start me up the way that Jack Daniels does
so I started drinking whiskey again

I get the feeling when the sun goes down
feeling loose, ready to hit the town
the day’s all been spent, but it’s too early to quit
so I started drinking whiskey again

you can find me under neon lights
where the music and the drinking’s right
won’t you fill it to the top, ‘cause this is all that I got
since I started drinking whiskey again

I started drinking whiskey again
I went and threw myself back in
I said I was through, so if this sounds out of tune
it’s ‘cause I started drinking whiskey again
