Well, life on a farm is kinda laid back
Ain't much an old country boy like me can't hack
It's early to rise, early in the sack
Thank God I'm a country boy
Well, a simple kind of life never did me no harm
A-raisin' me a family and working on the farm
My days are all filled with an easy country charm
Thank God I'm a country boy
Well, I got me a fine wife, I got me old fiddle
When the sun's coming up, I got cakes on the griddle
And life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle
Thank God I'm a country boy
When the work's all done and the sun's setting low
I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow
The kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low
Thank God I'm a country boy
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

Johnny, rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard
'Cause Hell's broke loose in Georgia, and the devil deals the cards
And if you win, you get this shiny fiddle made of gold
But if you lose, the devil gets your soul

Driving in that transit
Down to holy Joe's
Used to lose our head
While metal flowed
Nothing held us back or dared to try
Something in our blood
Won't let us die
We built our world of metal
Watched it grow
Fuelled the fury solid to the bone
Gotta deal with the devil
'cause you know that it's real
Done a deal with the devil
From a heart made of steel
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

Say you don't know me or recognize my face
Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place
Knee deep in the hoopla, sinking in your fight
Too many runaways eating up the night
Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember?
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

The fields of Eden
Are full of trash
And if we beg and we borrow and steal
We'll never get it back
People are hungry
They crowd around
And the city gets bigger as the country comes begging to town
We're stuck between a rock
And a hard place
Between a rock, yeah, and a hard place
This talk of freedom
And human rights
Means bullying and private wars and chucking all the dust into our eyes
And peasant people
Poorer than dirt
Who are caught in the crossfire
End up nothing to lose but their shirts, yeah
We're stuck between a rock
And a hard place
Between a rock and a hard place
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /

Say what I mean and I don't give a damn
I do believe and I am who I am
Hey now mama come take my hand
Whole lotta shakin' all over this land
If I was an eagle, I'd dress like a duck
Crawl like a lizard and honk like a truck
If I get a notion I'll climb this tree
Or chop it down and you can't stop me
Oh, chop it down and you can't stop me
Ooh, freedom
Ooh, liberty
Oh, leave me alone
To find my own way home
To find my own way home


Last nights encore
Dodging lions and a-wasting time

forgot still prefer Hunter's version of the song!

Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
And if you want to be free, be free
'Cause there's a million things to be
You know that there are
And if you want to live high, live high
And if you want to live low, live low
'Cause there's a million ways to go
You know that there are
You can do what you want
The opportunity's on
And if you can find a new way
You can do it today
You can make it all true
And you can make it undo
you see ah ah ah
its easy ah ah ah
You only need to know
Well if you want to say yes, say yes
And if you want to say no, say no
'Cause there's a million ways to go
You know that there are

Good, good morning so good to see you
Weren't just a dream of mine
Real as a raven, real as thunder
Real as the sun shinin'
But still so very undefined
Can't imagine what's
Behind those sleepy eyes
Little stranger, don't try to hide now
You look so young when you're afraid
There is no danger but from the Devil
He may want you but I'm in His way
You don't know how easy it is
You don't know how easy it is to love you
And come the moon rise, when the dew falls
Don't be the sun that fades away
Don't leave me darkness
She is no lover, she hides the day
You don't know how easy it is
You don't know how easy it is to love you
You don't know how easy it is
You don't know how easy it is to love you

I can't light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I'm growing tired and time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life

Too late to save myself from falling
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light

Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see

Watch out now, take care
Beware of falling swingers
Dropping all around you
The pain that often mingles in your fingertips
Beware of darkness
Watch out now, take care
Beware of the thoughts that linger
Winding up inside your head
The hopelessness around you
In the dead of night
Beware of sadness
It can hit you
It can hurt you
Make you sore and what is more
That is not what you are here for
Watch out now, take care
Beware of soft shoe shufflers
Dancing down the sidewalks
As each unconscious sufferer
Wanders aimlessly
Beware of Maya
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

You get up every morning from your alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above and people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty
And if your train's on time, you can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed, look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day
And I'll be taking care of business (every day)
Taking care of business (every way)
I've been taking care of business (it's all mine)
Taking care of business and working overtime, work out

I said I'm trav'ling on the one after 909
I got my bag, run to the station
Railman says you've got the the wrong location
I got my bag, run right home
Then I find I've got the number wrong

Once that you've decided on a killing
First you make a stone of your heart
And if you find that your hands are still willing
Then you can turn a murder into art
There really isn't any need for bloodshed
You just do it with a little more finesse
If you can slip a tablet into someone's coffee
Then it avoids an awful lot of mess
Because it's murder by numbers, one, two, three
It's as easy to learn as your ABC's

Olive green was the color of her pretty eyes
Soft and warm was the feeling in-between her thighs
69 is the number that we use in bed
I forget how many times that you've fucked with my head
Goddamn! I don't think that I'll ever understand
Goddamn! Could I ever really be your man?
I know I never wanna be alone
How'd I ever think that I could call you my own?
Used to think I really knew you well
Who'd of thought that you'd go astray?
After years and years of followin
Who'd of thought that we'd end this way?
And I'm a Killer
Everything's gonna be alright
I'm a Killer
Everything's gonna be alright
I'm gonna kill her if I see her at that party tonight
I'm a killer
Everything's gonna be alright

I could show you a high time, living the good life, don't be that way.
Nothing's for certain, it could always go wrong,
Come in when it's raining, go on out when it's gone.
We could have us a high time, living the good life, well I know.

My oh my, the coast is never that clear
Hate them rocks and stones, quit throwing them here
Shut that door, the locust is coming inside
Get out them boots and walk off that miracle mile
I’m a smooth operator
I’m a loose elevator
Watch me as I break the television
Talk me off the ledge, I can’t envision
Take me to the hole to throw a wish in
I am on my way, unstoppable
Lock the doors and warn the federation
Bright and bold, here comes the revolution
My oh my, the king is on a mission
I am on my way, unstoppable
Pure at heart, a king infallible
Great big fucking time
So powerful, I
My oh my, a kiss inside of my ear
A cool clean fist to punch out the holiday cheer
Stop everyone, stop everyone coming inside
Watch out, this is the first time I’m feeling alive
I’m a smooth operator
I’m a loose elevator
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

Face to face, each classic case
We shadow box and double cross
Yet need the chase
A license to love, insurance to hold
Melts all your memories and change into gold
His eyes are like angels but his heart is cold
No need to ask
He's a smooth operator
Smooth operator
Smooth operator

Operator, can you help me
Help me if you please
Give me the right area code
And the number that I need
My rider left upon the Midnight Flyer
Singin' like a summer breeze
I think she's somewhere down south
Down about Baton Rouge
But I just a can't remember no number
A number I can use
Directory don't have it
Central done forgot it
Gotta find a number to use.

Operator, well, could you help me place this call?
See, the number on the matchbook is old and faded
She's living in L. A. with my best old ex-friend Ray
Guy, she said she knew well and sometimes hated
Isn't that the way they say it goes?
But let' s forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell them I' m fine and to show

I took my troubles down to Madame Rue
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She's got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
Sellin' little bottles of Love Potion Number Nine
