Lyrics

BORN LOSER'S BAR

Written By: HOLLAND NELSON

There may be better bars
With high fashioned women
Bright lights and big country stars
Here’s to the best of ‘em
I’ll join the rest of ‘em
Down at the Born Loser’s Bar.

CHORUS
I’ll never be rich
I’ll never be famous
I’ll never be a big movie star,
But I’ve got my beer
And I’ve got my buddies
Down at the Born Loser’s Bar.

Well there’s winners and losers
Beggars and choosers
Jokers who never got far,
Life is uncertain
But nobody’s hurtin’
Down at the Born Loser’s Bar.

REPEAT CHORUS

There’s pale ones and stout ones
Ladies night out ones,
Some knock you down to the floor
As for myself
Who needs top shelf?
Bring me just one longneck more!

REPEAT CHORUS

Might not be rich
BUT I SURE AM FAMOUS!
Down at the Born Loser’s Bar.

ALONE TONIGHT

Written By: HOLLAND NELSON

I don’t want to be Alone Tonight
Like so many nights before
I don’t want to think of memories
When you don’t love me any more.
I don’t want to be the one to lose
The only thing that was right,
There’s our love song on the radio
And here I am again
Alone Tonight.

CHORUS
And it hurts me just to think about
How you’re spending the night
There’s our love song on the radio
And I don’t want to be Alone Tonight.

In my mind I see you dancing
And she’s smiling up at you
Just like a re-run of a memory
When our love was warm and new
And I wonder if you think of me
When you’re holding her tight,
There’s our love song on the radio
And I don’t want to be Alone Tonight.

CHORUS
And it hurts me just to think about
How you’re spending the night
There’s our love song on the radio
And I don’t want to be Alone Tonight.

CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE GONE

Written By: HOLLAND NELSON

I never thought the time would come
When all our dreams would die
We’re strangers now who close the door
We turn and say “Goodbye”
But even now I love you,
The feeling’s still so strong
Some times I wake up cryin’
Cause I Can’t Believe You’re Gone.

CHORUS
Can’t Believe You’re Gone
Babe, you took so long to find,
Can’t Believe You’re Gone
You’re still living in my mind.
And after all this time with you
How could love turn out so wrong?
You’ll always be a part of me
No, I Can’t Believe You’re Gone.

You were the melody inside of me
My other half made whole,
The magic and the laughter,
The music in my soul,
The rhythm and the passion,
My midnight symphony
You’re the only one who ever heard
The song inside of me.

Repeat Chorus.

After all this time with you,
How could love turn out so wrong?
You’ll always be a part of me,
No, I can’t believe, can’t believe,
I just Can’t Believe You’re Gone.

CREDIT CARD SONG

Written By: HOLLAND NELSON

Last two weeks been might rough,
Just waitin’ to get paid
Look at the deductions
Compared to what I made
I’ll tell you how I make it through
It isn’t very hard
I never got no money
But I got my credit card.

CHORUS
Oh, Master Card, Diner’s Club, Sears and Texaco
Citybank, American Express, Visa and Shell Oil,
JC Penney, Neiman Mark Up, the Discover Card,
You can the good life if you got a credit card.

I work two jobs to pay my bills
I live the ‘merican dream,
Got a plasma TV
With a sixty-four inch screen,
Gotta a yeller Hum V
And a boat out in the yard
I got everything the Jones’s got
With a little plastic card.

REPEAT CHORUS

All the bills came in today
Marked “Payment Overdue”
The phone’s been ringin’ off the wall,
They swear they’re gonna sue,
I’ll sell it all on e-Bay,
It won’t be very hard,
But first thing that I’m gonna do
Is burn these #*#@ cards.

REPEAT CHORUS

TAG LINE
You’d better leave home without ‘em
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

OH SUSANNAH! (I'M CRYIN' OVER YOU)

Written By: HOLLAND NELSON

Oh Susannah I’m Cryin’ Over You
Never thought I’d find a woman
Who can love me like you do.

Met her down in Louisiana
Just about a year ago
I was playing a fiddle
In a country music show,
She loved me and she left me
Susannah said goodbye
Funny how a thing like that
Can make a grown man cry.

CHORUS
Oh Susannah I’m Cryin’ Over You
Never thought I’d find a woman
Who could make me feel so blue,
Please come on back to Louisiana
Promise I’ll be true
Oh Susannah I’m Cryin’ Over You.

Susannah was a Southern girl
Said she ran away from home
She was tired of runnin’
And didn’t want to be alone
But me, I spent most all my time
Fiddlin’ with the band
Shoulda taken that young girl home
With a ring on her left hand.

REPEAT CHORUS

The night wind it was howling
A tear was in her eye
I felt like I was dyin’
As Susannah waved goodbye,
And now I dream I see her
In every town we play
I know she’s out there somewhere Lord
I’ll find that girl someday.

REPEAT CHORUS
