Lyrics

It's Alright

Written By: Marty Attridge

I got a woman who don't want me.
She calls me up to keep her company.
When I call her I get the answering machine.
I got a woman who don't want me.

I've got a home where I can't stay.
The judge and the ex took that away.
Let the lawyers fight and the children play.
I've got a home where I can't stay.

It's alright, it's alright.
Just got to make it through another lonely night.
Say a little prayer, hope for light.
It's alright, it's alright.

I've got a future that I can't see.
Seems the past won't let me be.
Holes in the ocean, storms on the sea.
I've got a future that I can't see.

It's alright, it's alright.
I've got friends to help me see the light.
Pass around a bottle, laugh all night.
It's alright, it's alright.

I got a woman who don't want me.
I've got a home where I can't be.
I've got a future that's hard to see.
I got a woman who don't want me.

It's alright, it's alright.
Just got to make it through another lonely night.
Say a little prayer, turn on the light.
It's alright, it's alright.

It's alright, it's alright.
I've got friends to help me keep my sight.
Pass around a guitar, sing all night.
It's alright, it'll be alright...

Blues Skies

Written By: Doug Attridge

Blue Skies hanging over my head
Through my eyes they're grey as lead
Since you've gone you took away the sun
Summer days aren't any fun
'Cause in my heart it's raining

Sunlight shining on me
Sunshine never warming me
Since you're gone the sun won't ever shine
It's raining all the time
The clouds won't go away

Do, do,do,do.......

Blue Skies hanging over my head
Through my eyes they're grey as lead
Since you're gone the sun won't ever shine
It's raining all the time
The clouds won't go away

Blue skies hanging over my head
Blue skies hanging over my head
Blue skies, Blue skies
Blue skies, Blue skies

3rd World Mississippi

Written By: Marty Attridge

I'm livin in a 3rd world Mississippi
Wrong side of the railroad tracks
I'm livin in a 3rd world Mississippi
dirt streets, tar-paper shacks

This ain't no French Riviera
This ain't no cul-de-sac
This ain't no room with a view
This ain't no Cadillac

I'm livin in a 3rd world Mississippi
Wrong side of the railroad tracks
I'm livin in a 3rd world Mississippi
Come on down, you won't come back

This ain't no Hallelujah Choir
This ain't no Sunday school
This ain't no walk through the roses
This ain't no golden rule

I'm livin in a 3rd world Mississippi
I'm livin in a 3rd world Mississippi

This ain't no fine silk and diamonds
This ain't no Beverly Hills
This ain't no house in the Hamptons
This ain't no Coupe-de-Ville

I'm livin in a 3rd world Mississippi
Wrong side of the railroad tracks
I'm livin in a 3rd world Mississippi
Come on down, you won't come back

If You Ain't Got The Money

Written By: Marty Attridge

You've got to buy, You've got to sell
Living it large, Living it well
But if you ain't got the money
then you best not come around.

You've got to own, You've got to buy
Take out a loan, Pay it on time
But if you ain't got the money
then you best not come around.

You need the look, You need the stuff
New and improved, Never enough
But if you ain't got the money
then you best not come around.

Ride on that golden train,
Ride on that golden train.

You've got to buy, You've got to sell
Living it large, Living it well
But if you ain't got the money
then you best not come around.....

Mean Dog Woman

Written By: Doug Attridge

Hey baby, what'd you do to my heart.
You tore it right outta my chest and you ripped it apart.
You're a Mean Dog Woman with a big black heart.

Hey baby, how could you sink so low.
You ran around with all my friends, spending all my dough.
You're a Mean Dog Woman and you've got no soul.

Hey baby, I ain't gonna take no more.
Don't get hit in the ass as you walk out my door.
You're a Mean Dog Woman, rotten to the core.

Princess

Written By: Marty Attridge c. 1998

Like a fairie princess you decree
You will have no part of me
From your heart's dungeon know this truth
I will love you

Let other princes climb your hair
Moat your castle, I don't care
Call your guards, have me removed
But I'll still love you
I'll still love you

Oh, I'm not a knight in shining armor
No, I don't hold the Holy Grail
But I've got a dragon's heart of fire
For you

Drive my armies from the field
Before your presence make me kneel
My sworn allegience deep and true
I will love you

Remove the sword from my stone
Place yourself upon my throne
Strike my colors from your view
But I'll still love you
Yes, I'll still love you

Oh, I'm not a knight in shining armor
No, I don't hold the Holy Grail
But I've got a dragon's heart of fire
For you

This ain't no magic kingdom
This ain't no fairie tale
I will scale you heart's walls
Yes, My love will prevail

Oh, I'm not a knight in shining armor
No, I don't hold the Holy Grail
But I've got a dragon's heart of fire
For you

Let other princes climb your hair
Moat your castle, I don't care
Call your guards, have me removed
But I'll still love you
I'll still love you

Prayin For The Rain

Written By: M. Attridge,D. Attridge,J. Gorman,T. Daly c. 2009, T. Daly c. 2009

Troubled times in a promised land
Some people taking everything they can
Steal the goodtimes, leave the pain

The banker grins at his new deal
The farmer stands in his dying fields
Praying for the rain on a sunny day

Some people trying to keep the sun
Throw their shadows out on everyone
Steal the light, only leave the rain

They're closing all the factories
Taking homes, leaving misery
Tossing all those hard earned lives away

I'm praying for the rain on a sunny day
Let the river rise and take it all away
Let the water wash away our sins
Knock it down and build it new again
Praying for the rain on a sunny day

Everyman has got his price I'm told
But every dream can't be bought and sold
There's only so much you can take away

I'm praying for the rain on a sunny day
Let the river rise and take it all away
Let the water wash away our sins
Knock it down and build it new again
Praying for the rain on a sunny day

Praying for the rain on a sunny day
Praying for the rain on a sunny day
Let the river rise and wash it all away
Praying for the rain on a sunny day
