Lyrics

Open Road

Written By: Rayne Ellington-Lawrence


Verse1: It was a dark and dreary day in May,
When I said I had enough and I walked away.
So I packed up my things and a guitar too,
And headed on out to find something new.

Verse 2: One foot in front, I’m never lookin behind,
Just keepin' my eye on that dotted line
Walking into the settin' sun,
Knowin’ my adventures have just begun.

Chorus 1: I ain’t got no money, ain’t got no gold,
Just living this life on the open road.
There’s a void in my chest,
something’s missing it wont let me rest.

Verse 3: I was down in Louisiana when I first heard the beat,
It seemed so simple made you tap your feet.
They called it the blues it felt so right,
I was strumming along all through the night.

Chorus 2: I ain’t got no money, ain’t got no gold,
Just living this life on the open road.
I found the music in my chest,
but it wont still let me rest.

Verse 4: I’m a drifter by definition can’t you see,
This is the life perfect for me.
I’m moving a long like a rolling stone,
Trying to find my way back home.

Verse 5: I’ve been roamin around strumming all the way
And I want to do this till me dying day.
I’m moving along like a rolling stone,
Trying to find my soul a home.

Chorus 3: I ain’t got no money, ain’t got no gold,
Just living this life on the open road.
I found the blues in my soul,
And that is worth its weight in gold.

Verse 6: I found I don’t need riches and things like that,
Just, my old guitar and this old pack,
I’m moving along like a Rollin stone
Trying to find my way back home.

Outro: On the open road the place that I call home.

Chorus 4 : I ain’t got no money, ain’t got no gold,
Just living this life on the open road.
I couldn’t be happier if I tried
and this is where I want to die.

Outro: On the open road the place that I call home.

Chorus 5: I ain’t got no money, ain’t got no gold,
Just living this life on the open road.
I found the blues in my soul,
And that is worth its weight in gold.

On the open road!

One Hell of a Ride

One Hell of a Ride
Words and lyrics by Rayne Ellington-Lawrence

Intro-
You’d hold your head way up high,
Chomp at the bit, whinny, and cry.
As if to say its time to go,
Let’s start this rodeo.

Verse 1: I’d slacken the reins you’d leap and prance,
then shoot forward like a speeding lance.
The pounding of your hooves like thunder they rang,
as we traveled down the lane.

Chorus: And then we’d tear down that old gravel road straight into the burning evening sun. I lost my hat a mile ago this one hell of a horse, one hell of a ride.

Verse 2 : The sky and fields would blur into one,
for we were moving faster than a bullet from a gun.
The whistling of the wind in my ears,
as we charged forward without fear

Chorus: And then we’d tear down that old gravel road straight into the burning evening sun. I lost my hat a mile ago. This one hell of a horse, one hell of a ride.

Verse 3:
Then we would turn into those fields of green
and it all seemed to be a dream.
To share the joy we felt words had no need,
for I was your rider and you my valiant steed.

Chorus: And then we would tear down that old gravel road straight into the burning evening sky. I lost my hat a mile ago, this one hell of a horse, one hell of a ride.

Verse 4:
Sometimes I go to that special place.
That three mile stretch where we used to race.
Maybe it’s just all in my mind,
sometimes I see a flash of red amongst the pines.

Chorus 2: And in my mind again, we’ll tear down that old gravel road straight into the flamin’ evening sky. I lost a horse many years ago, he was one hell of a friend, it was one hell of a ride.
