Lyrics

RISIN' HIGH

Written By: David Verno Jr.

RISIN’ HIGH

The way you walk,
The way you talk,
Girl gonna make me crazy.
The way you dress.
I must confess.
Woman you are a walking crime.

You got the cure.
I know for shure
Give me a double dose of your potion.
I require fire an desire.
And honey you’ve got the devotion.

(CHORUS)

You turn me on!
My temperature is Risin’ High!
Takin’ three steps back set for attack.
Girl you got me on fire_!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Well I saw you at our show by the backstage door.
Lookin’ like my kind of trouble.
I should have known right away,
Bout the price to be paid.
Honey I ain’t talking dollars

(CHORUS)
(BRIDGE)

Make no mistake, got me on the take.
Set my world on fire.
Making love with you, is all I wanna do.
Honey won’t you quench my desire.

Come on_! Yeah_! Yeah_! Come on_!
Yeah_, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

CALL UP THE DOCTOR

Written By: David Verno Jr.

CALL UP THE DOCTOR

People we came along way
Still have many miles to burn
We’re just a livin for rock n roll music
Seems so hopeless we’ll never learn

We kicked a few nastay habits
Came three steps from the grave
Ah little whiskey wine an song
Aint never done us wrong
It may kill us but its our way

(CHORUS)
Call up the doctor !
This bottles empty
Send up two more fifths if you please
Im seeing double!
Im in trouble_.
You know its got a hold on me__,
Daniels__! Got a hold on me.

lts been said Im crazy
Well let me tell you a thang or two
When your livin for rockin music
Tends to make a fool out of you

These songs aint written by no poets
People wont ya hear what I say
Im just out to have me a goodtime
I say southern rock is here to stay_.

(CHORUS)
Call up the Doctor !
This bottles empty
Send up two more fifths if you please
Im seeing double!
Im in trouble_.
You know its got a hold on me__,
Daniels__! Got a hold on me.

SEVEN DAYS

Written By: David Verno Jr.

SEVEN DAYS

Seven days since you left me,
Seven days never felt so long.
Got my picture in your pocket, baby
Ive got yours baby in my mind
It takes up all my time.

You said, two weeks!
Since you left me.
Seems like two years since we made love.
Time, keeps, draggin’ on

Sittin’ here this evening,
Wonderin’ where you are.
Sometimes i think i can feel you babe
Turn around baby you were gone.

Its been so long_, long_, long_.
Since we’ve been alone.

Stormy wheather seems to turn you on.
Well Ive been down since the day you were gone.

Well i can’t stop thinkin’ about you.
Girl you got me losin’ sleep
Time_ keeps_ draggin on.

Sittin here this evenin’,
Wonderin’ where you are,
Sometimes i think i can feel ya babe
Turn around baby you were gone.

Its been so long_ long_ long_!
Since we been alone.

~GUITAR SOLO~

Well I cant stop thinkin’ about you
Girl you’ve got me losin’ sleep.
Time keeps draggin’ on

Feel the rain fallen
Listen to the thunder in the sky
My heart is like a river baby
If i don’t_ get my_ fill_ the river runs dry.
If i don’t_ get my_ fill_ the river runs dry.
Oooh__ yeah__!

GIMME THE WHEEL

Written By: David Verno Jr. / Jeff Simmons

GIMME THE WHEEL

Rockin’ with you baby on the outskirts of town
Feelin’ so good, I don’t wanna slow down.
Last time I saw you, top of the hill,
You said, a come on fast. I said, I damn sure will_

(CHORUS)

And lets fly__, honey betta gimme the wheel.
We’ll get by__, baby, don’t cha no how I feel.

Four lanes of traffic, got me stuck to the right .
Feelin’ keyed up, its saturday night.
Skynyrds got me rockin’ got my foot on the gas
Better hold on tight, cuz you know we got to pass.

(CHORUS)

Lets fly__, honey betta gimme the wheel.
We’ll get by__, baby don’t cha no how I feel,

(BRIDGE)

Don’t think I can make it but Im sure gonna try
See my chance comin’ slip by on the sly
Car up ahead pulling off to the side.
I said, go! go! go!
Come on, come on!

TAKE ME BACK

Written By: David Verno Jr.

TAKE ME BACK

I got those hometown blues again.
Yeah, don’t you know its a rattlin’ my cage
And I can’t stand it no more
I miss my good friends and my family
Walkin’ down the road
I’m on my way

(CHORUS)

Take me back
To my friends and my long lost home
Well its been to long, too __long
Since I seen em,
Got three hundred miles to roam

Thinkin’ back on days of past.
You know I can’t go back I know.
Lots of whiskey! And lots of wine.
Women , parties, and rock n roll.

(CHORUS)

My love for my music has taken me far away.
But miles_, can’t erace, memories like these.
If it wasn’t for my goodfriends, and my family.
Well I wouldn’t be here today.

(CHORUS)

Take me back
To my friends and my long lost home
Well its been to long, too long!
Since I seen em.
I got three hundred miles to roam.
Oooh yeah!
(girls) three hundred miles to roam
Won’t you take me!
Won’t you take me back
(girls) three hundred miles to roam
Three hundred mile to roam
