Honkytonk Life lyrics - Darryl Worley

Well, I think I'm in Kansas, maybe Missouri
The truth is I really ain't sure
But I've been in this van going on fifteen hours
My back and my butt, God they hurt
There's a sign up ahead, flashing in red
From Nashville, appearing tonight
It's always the same, they misspell my name
Still I love the honkytonk life

Hey Soir, grab the guitars, and I'll get the speakers
Could somebody plug in my amp
If we hurry they'll feed us, before we go on
And I'll work it out with the man
Sometimes the beer's free and sometimes it's half price
And sometimes there's no beer at all
But me and the boys'll be making some noise
Either way ?til they give that last call

The guys will be drinkin', the girls will be dancing
Dancing up there on the bar
This joint's got an atmosphere
Blue collar, cold beer
Decidedly come as you are
I could quit all this road stuff
Go back to my real job
And put in a straight nine to five
But I love the neon
And I love the people
And I love the honkytonk life

I got a wink from a barmaid straight out of a magazine
Man, that girl's breaking my heart
Now I've got ten after, but according to tavern time
This gig is fixing to start
This crowd here is rowdier, the girls here are prettier
Than any place we've ever played
You got us boys thinking, if y'all keep on drinkin'
Tonight we might all just get... paid

The guys are all drinkin', the girls are all dancing
Dancing up there on the bar
This joint's got an atmosphere
Blue collar, cold beer
Decidedly come as you are
I could quit all this road stuff
Go back to my real job
And put in a straight nine to five
But I love the neon
And I love the people
And I love the honky tonk life
Yeah I love the neon
I love the people
And I love the honkytonk life



Best Of Both Worlds lyrics - Darryl Worley

She's too complicated to ever be described
She's kinda like an angel with a wild side

Free she sets me free
If this is tied down it's where I wanna be
She's my friend and my lover
That's my girl
I've got the best of both worlds

Free she sets me free
If this is tied down it's where I wanna be
She's my friend and my lover
That's my girl
I've got the best of both worlds

Look at that body would you look at those eyes
She'll be everything I dream of when she loves me tonight

Free she sets me free
If this is tied down it's where I wanna be
She's my friend and my lover
That's my girl
I've got the best of both worlds

She's always gonna be there when I have a bad day
She knows how to listen knows just what to say
But there's something 'bout her touch that takes the world away
When she says nothing at all

Free she sets me free
If this is tied down it's where I wanna be
She's my friend and my lover
That's my girl
I've got the best of both worlds


Slow Dancin' With A Memory lyrics - Darryl Worley

He walked into Dusty's Place last night
I said something about that boy ain't right
He drank a half a dozen double shots
Walked to the dancefloor and picked his spot

[CHORUS]
Then he closed his eyes and dropped his head
Folded his arms across his chest
Slowly started swaying side to side

That's when I walked up and said are you okay
He had big old tears running down his face
He said not right now buddy can't you see
I'm slow dancing with a memory

I just waited until the song was through
I asked if there was something I could do
He said not unless you can bring her home
Then 'he stopped loving her today' came on

[CHORUS]
Then he closed his eyes and dropped his head
Folded his arms across his chest
Slowly started swaying side to side

I walked back to the bar and old dusty said
We oughta throw that fool out on his head
I said why don't you let that poor man be
He's slow dancing with a memory

I hate to see somebody down that low
But that's the wau life is and the way love goes
Someday that just mights be you or me
Slow dancing with a memory
Slow dancing with a memory


Sounds Like Life To Me lyrics - Darryl Worley

Got a call last night from an old friend’s wife
Said I hate to bother you
Johnny Ray fell off the wagon
He’s been gone all afternoon
I know my buddy so I drove to Skully’s
And found him at the bar
I say hey man, what’s going on
He said I don’t know where to start

Sarah’s old car’s about to fall apart
And the washer quit last week
We had to put momma in the nursing home
And the baby’s cutting teeth
I didn’t get much work this week
And I got bills to pay
I said I know this ain’t what you wanna hear
But it’s what I’m gonna say

[Chorus]
Sounds like life to me it ain’t no fantasy
It’s just a common case of everyday reality
Man I know it’s tough but you gotta suck it up
To hear you talk you’re caught up in some tragedy
It sounds like life to me

Well his face turned red and he shook his head
He said you don’t understand
Three kids and a wife depend on me
And I’m just one man
To top it off I just found out
That Sarah’s 2 months late
I said hey bartender set us up a round
We need to celebrate

[Chorus]
Sounds like life to me plain old destiny
Yeah the only thing for certain is uncertainty
You gotta hold on tight just enjoy the ride
Get used to all this unpredictability
Sounds like life

Man I know its tough but you gotta suck it up
To hear you talk you’re caught up in some tragedy
Sounds like life to me
Sounds like life

Doin' What's Right lyrics - Darryl Worley

The only thing that he feared was God
He was tough as nails, he didn't spare the rod
'Cause he loved us kids
Yeah, he did

Raised us up straight and strong
Said be your own man, don't you tag along
With the wrong crowd
He said, listen now

Don't you let nobody tell you what you need to do
Just listen to that voice that's talkin' deep inside of you, sayin'

Don't sell out
Don't you compromise
If it's something you believe in
Son, you may have to fight
But you can't go wrong when you're doin' what's right

Well, things have changed in the world today
No black and white, just shades of grey
And we know it ain't right
Taking pills to sleep at night

My old man still lives in me
And I'm seeing things that he said I'd see
But I won't give in
'Cause I remember when

He told me not to live my life for anybody else
Son, the only thing you have to do is answer to yourself, sayin'

Don't sell out
Don't you compromise
If it's something you believe in
Son, you may have to fight
But you can't go wrong when you're doin' what's right

He said, it may be the hardest thing you'll ever have to do
And if anybody's got your back it'll be a precious few, sayin'

Don't sell out
Don't you compromise
If it's something you believe in
Son, you may have to fight
But you can't go wrong when you're doin' what's right



Tequila On Ice lyrics - Darryl Worley

I always kind of figured love would pass me by
The kind of girl I wanted wouldn’t want a guy like me
I thought that she, wouldn’t look twice
You see I‘m kinda crazy, I like the extremes
So all of my life, the girl of my dreams
Was everything nice, sugar and spice
And tequila on ice

I was looking for a saint who was a devil of a lover
But every girl I found was either one way or the other
‘Til one night at a bar when I saw her standing there
Pretty thing in blue jeans with a daisy in her hair

I walked over to her and introduced myself
Said, “Now that we know each other, if you’re not with someone else
Can I buy you a drink”
She said “Thank you I think
I’ll have tequila on ice” (and I said, “Nice”)

I was looking for a saint who was a devil of a lover
But every girl I found was either one way or the other
But this one here was different, I could see it from the start
Pretty thing in blue jeans, kinda sweet and wild at heart

I guess that’s what got me down here in Cancun
Lying in this hammock, looking at the moon up there
Stroking her hair and picking out rice
My baby’s kisses taste like sugar and spice
And tequila on ice


Everyday Love lyrics - Darryl Worley


Girl, it hit me like a bolt right out of the blue
I was done, that was it
I was way past through
I always swore I'd never act like a lovesick fool
But these days that's all I do
From the moment I laid eyes on you, I knew

This ain't no everyday love
It's a gift from the Good Lord up above
Never had a feeling feel like this one does
I need it every day
This ain't no everyday love
Ain't no everyday love

Just about the time I thought I'd felt it all, phone rang
You cried and said the doctor called
She's the sweetest thing I think I've ever seen
Red hair, blue eyes, her daddy's grin
From the moment I laid eyes on her, I was sure

This ain't no everyday love
It's a gift from the Good Lord up above
Never had a feeling feel like this one does
I need it every day
This ain't no everyday love

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday
I thank Him every Sunday

This ain't no everyday love
It's a gift from the Good Lord up above
Never had a feeling feel like this one does
I need it every day
This ain't no everyday love
Ain't no everyday love


Nothing But Money lyrics - Darryl Worley

Put a man on the moon
And a kid in college
Get you four new tires
And your pickup polished

A little white house outside of the city
Or a big old chair on the House Committee
It'll put you up on top of the world
Or six feet in the ground
(It makes the world go 'round)

Money
Nothin' but money
Money
Nothin' but money
I work all day
Sweat and slave
And we break our backs for what?
Money
Nothin' but money

Just a little bitty green wrinkled piece of paper
It's a down-right bonafide force of nature
Can't buy happiness, won't buy love
And if you had it all it wouldn't be enough
It'll make you do some crazy thing
It's something we all need
(It don't grow on trees)

Money
Nothin' but money
Talkin' 'bout money
Nothin' but money
I work all day
Sweat and slave
And we break our backs for what?
Money
Nothin' but money

Money
Nothin' but money
Talkin' 'bout money
Nothin' but money
Money
Nothin' but money
Talkin' 'bout money
Nothin' but money
I work all day
Sweat and slave
And we break our backs for what?
Money
Nothin' but money



Don't Show Up (If You Can't Get Down) lyrics - Darryl Worley (feat. Bill Anderson, John Anderson, Mel Tillis & Smash Mouth)

Well, tonight there's a party in the making
And by now word is out all over town
Just one rule, the only stipulation
Don't show up
If you can't get down

We've been known to play some funky music
It never fails to always draw a crowd
We insist that everybody here be groovin'
So don't show up
If you can't get down

Come on in pretty mama
Sure feels fine
Leave your worries and your cares behind
And let us help you, baby
Turn it loose
The house is rocking girl and so are you

Come on in everybody
Sure feels fine
Leave your worries and your cares behind
Get your party on
And do your thing
You won't find a better place to hang

Man I love the way this joint is hopping
The way you're shaking it may crumble to the ground
We ain't scared
And there ain't nobody stopping
So don't show up
If you can't get down

I said
Don't show up
If you can't get down



Messed Up In Memphis lyrics - Darryl Worley

Home
I'm so far from home
And she's gone
I messed up in Memphis

Alone
Out here on my own
The night is young
Messed up in Memphis

Oh, there's music in the air tonight
City lights and I hear those Beale Street blues
Telling me it's gonna be alright
Let it go
You got nothing' left to lose

Oh, pain
I don't feel no pain
Messed up in Memphis

Oh, there's music in the air tonight
City lights and I hear those Beale Street blues
Telling me it's gonna be alright
Let it go
You got nothin' left to lose

Oh, glance
Just a passing glance
A second chance
Messed up in Memphis

Fire
Painted lips on fire
Love for hire
Messed up in Memphis

Love for hire
Messed up in Memphis

You Never Know lyrics - Darryl Worley

He kissed his wife at gate number 5
Headed on another red-eye flight
Said he'd be back on the 9th and they'd find the time
To take the kids out on the coast
Do the things that really matter most
But he won't be coming home
This time

Guess you never know
You never know
In this here today and gone tomorrow
Don't be fightin' with your brother
Tell your mama that you love her
Hold your woman tight
And don't let go
'Cause you never know

So I took my own advice
And I held my woman tight
I cry about my brother's life almost every night
I think about our year-long grudge
Mama begged me to call him up
What I wouldn't give now
To go back

'Cause you never know
You never know
In this here today and gone tomorrow
Don't be fightin' with your brother
Tell your mama that you love her
Hold your woman tight
And don't let go
'Cause you never know

If you've been puttin' off forgiveness
Man, tomorrow ain't a promise
Call 'em up tonight and let it go
'Cause you never know

Jumpin' Off The Wagon lyrics - Darryl Worley

I got drunk in Raleigh and I played to long
Word got back to Nashville before I got back home
The Record label said Boy you better straighten up your act
The lawyers told me son that’s what the contract say
I got good and sober and stayed that way
But still you couldn’t find a Worley record on the rack

I did everything they asked me to do
And still they wouldn’t cut me loose
Well I Ain’t bought
I’m through crawling
I’ve got lots of other people calling
No more nagging
I Ain’t bragging
But my boot heels they Ain’t dragging
I Ain’t falling
Hell I’m jumping off the wagon

I’m already feeling more like my old self
That double shot of dickle was a lot of help
Here on out, I’m just doing my own thing
Theirs something to be said about just feeling good
I’m going with my guts so baby knock on wood
If this don’t work I’ve only got myself to blame

I Ain’t into looking back
I Ain’t ever got nowhere like that
So I Ain’t calling
I’m through crawling
I’ve got lots of other people calling
No more nagging
I Ain’t bragging
But my boot heels they Ain’t dragging
I Ain’t falling
Hell I’m jumping off the wagon

I Ain’t calling
I’m through crawling
I’ve got lots of other people calling
No more nagging
I Ain’t bragging
And my boot heels they Ain’t dragging
I Ain’t falling
Hell I’m jumping off the wagon
I Ain’t jiving
Yea, I’m diving off the wagon



Nothin' But A Love Thang lyrics - Darryl Worley

Lay down with me;
Let me ease your mind.
