  1. Hey Good Lookin'

    Hey Good Lookin'
    By Hank Williams
    (with Clint Black, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith and George Strait)

    Hey, hey, good lookin',
    Whatcha got cookin'?
    How's about cookin' somethin' up with me?
    Hey, hey, sweet baby,
    Don't you think maybe
    We could find us a brand new recipe?

    I got a hot-rod Ford and a two-dollar bill
    And I know a spot right over the hill.
    There's soda pop and the dancin's free,
    If you wanna have fun come along with me.
    Hey, good lookin',
    Whatcha got cookin'?
    How's about cookin' somethin' up with me?

    I'm free and I'm ready,
    Maybe we can go steady.
    How's about savin' all your time for me?
    No more lookin',
    I know I've been tookin'.
    How's about keepin' steady company?

    Well I'm gonna throw my date-book over the fence
    find me one for five or ten cents.
    I'll keep it 'til it's covered with age
    'Cause I'm writin' your name down on every page.
    Hey, hey, good lookin',
    Whatcha got cookin'?
    How's about cookin' somethin' up with me?
    How's about cookin' somethin' up with me?
    How's about cookin' somethin' up with me?

  3. License To Chill (with Kenny Chesney)

    License To Chill
    By Jimmy Buffett/Mac McAnally/Al Anderson
    (with Kenny Chesney)

    Work, work, work
    Big pile of it and the boss is a jerk
    Just want to disappear
    Wishin' I was somewhere other than here
    Livin' for the weekend
    Jump right off the deep end
    With just enough money to buy

    CHORUS

    A license to chill
    And I believe I will
    Let the rat race run roll around
    In the sun until
    Trouble turns funny and songs get sung
    With a little bit of money the night's still young
    Leave me alone I 've got a license
    License to chill

    Girls, girls, girls
    Ain't nothin' like them in the whole wide world
    So damn smart and cute
    And it's amazing what they pass off as a bathing suit
    Winners and losers
    Sailors and cruisers
    We're all qualified

    CHORUS

    For a license to chill
    And I believe I will
    Let the rat race run roll around
    In the sun until
    Trouble turns funny and songs get sung
    With a little bit of money the night's still young
    Leave me alone I 've got a license
    License to chill

    A license to chill
    And I believe I will
    Let the rat race run roll around
    In the sun until
    Trouble turns funny and songs get sung
    A one note samba lasts all night long
    Leave me alone I 've got a license

  4. Coast Of Carolina

    Coast Of Carolina
    By Jimmy Buffett/Mac McAnally

    Little roadside restaurant we artfully complain
    Groovy tells the waitress that his chicken died in vain
    Most every day goes by according to design
    I live this dream but still it seems I have you on my mind

    From the bottom of my heart
    Off the coast of Carolina
    After one or two false starts
    I believe we found our stride
    And the walls that won't come down
    We can decorate or climb or find some way to get around
    Cause I'm still on your side
    From the bottom of my heart

    I can't see the future but I know it's comin' fast
    It's not that hard to wind up knee deep in the past
    It's come a lot of Mondays
    Since the phone booth that first night
    Through years and miles and tears and smiles
    I want to get it right

    CHORUS

    From the bottom of my heart
    Off the coast of Carolina
    After one or two false starts
    I believe we found our stride
    And the walls that won't come down
    We can decorate or climb or find some way to get around
    Cause I'm still on your side
    From the bottom of my heart

    INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

    These days I'm up about the time I used to go to bed
    Living large was once the deal, now I watch the stars instead
    They are timeless and predictable unlike most things that I do
    But I tell the wind and my old friend I'm headed home to you

    CHORUS

    From the bottom of my heart
    Off the coast of Carolina
    After one or two false starts
    I believe we found our stride
    And the walls that won't come down
    Hell we can decorate or climb or find some way to get around
    Cause I'm still on your side
    From the bottom of my heart
    From the bottom of my heart

  5. Piece Of Work (with Toby Keith)

    Piece Of Work
    By William A. Kimbrough
    (with Toby Keith)

    I'm a piece of work, I'm iron and lace
    I'm shy, right up there in your face
    I'm all dumbfounded, stubborn as an ass
    Sharp as an arrow in a pile of glass
    I'm a sweetheart, genius, restless jerk
    Lord have mercy, I'm a piece of work

    Well, the lord made me on a long thin limb
    Made sure I'd remember him
    Or her in the middle of a long, dark night
    Creation crazy, death sheet white
    Made in the image of a lion shocked lamb
    I am who the hell I am
    Ever better, bad to worse
    Down to the letter I'm a piece of work

    I’m a piece of work, I'm an angel's fiend
    Bathed in lavender and gasoline
    Scared brave, shallow in an ink black well
    Lightly browned in the fires of hell
    Wicked, holy, full on fake
    Best known for my big mistake
    I'm Zen wise, peaceful, gone berserk
    Good god almighty I'm a piece of work

    I'm a dreadful sight and I just don't care
    Spent all morning pulling out my hair
    I woke at dawn with a crazy spin
    Half the day trying to glue back in
    Mother, bloody mary, please
    Wipe that smile right off your knees
    I'm the CEO of the mailroom clerks
    Lord have mercy, what a piece of work

    I'm a piece of work, I'm a lovesick boy
    Cloth cap, caviar and corduroy
    All over the map, just a-lost in space
    With a filthy mind and a choirboy's face
    Heels up, head down, straight on through
    Watch out, woman I'm-a get to you
    I'm a gladiator with a mind to irk
    Good god almighty I'm a piece of work
    I'm a piece of work
    I'm a piece of work
    I'm a piece of work

  6. Anything, Anytime, Anywhere

    Anything, Anytime, Anywhere
    By Bruce Cockburn
    ( Mike on accordion, Sonny on slide )

    Tomorrow may come
    It usually does
    Don't know what it brings
    To the two of us
    I just want you to know
    What I'm ready to do
    Anything, anytime, anywhere, for you

    When I'm holding you tight
    You give me the power
    To burn like a torch
    In the darkest hour
    Tell me what you need
    I will surely come through
    Anything, anytime, anywhere for you

    VERSE INSTRUMENTAL

    Passion runs deep
    It's scary sometime
    When it's larger than life
    For your piece of mind
    It's got me all insane
    I'm not sorry that's true
    Anything, anytime, anywhere for you
    Anything, anytime, anywhere for you
    Anything, anytime, anywhere for you

  7. Trip Around The Sun (with Martina McBride)

    Trip Around The Sun
    By Al Anderson/Steve Bruton/Sharon Vaughn
    (with Martina McBride)

    Here I'm singin' happy birthday
    Better think about the about the wish I make
    This year gone by ain't been a piece of cake
    Everyday's a revolution
    Pull it together and it comes undone
    Just one more candle and a trip around the sun

    CHORUS

    I'm just hangin' on while this old world keeps spinning
    And it's good to know it's out of my control
    If there's one thing that I've learned from all this livin'
    Is that it wouldn't change a thing if I let go

    No you never see it comin'
    Always wind up wonderin' where it went
    Only time will tell if it was time well spent
    It's another revelation
    Celebrating what I should have done
    With these souvenirs of my trip around the sun

    CHORUS

    I'm just hangin' on while this old world keeps spinning
    And it's good to know it's out of my control
    If there's one thing that I've learned from all this livin'
    Is that it wouldn't change a thing if I let go

    INSTRUMENTAL

    Yes I'll make a resolution
    That I'll never make another one
    Just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun
    Just enjoy this ride

  8. Simply Complicated

    Simply Complicated
    By Jimmy Buffett/Bill Withers

    When you find out things about yourself
    That you hadn't ought to know
    When your grandma calls and books you
    On the Jerry Springer show
    And you find out you and your wife of ten years
    Just might be related
    Brother, life's not over it's just
    Simply complicated

    There's other situations that might
    Challenge you I guess.
    When your daughter tries out for the football team
    And your son tries on her dress
    And you start to think that the devil's in charge
    Of how you're situated
    Life is still worth living it's just
    Simply complicated

    Chorus
    Life is complicated with its
    Ifs and ands and buts
    It's alright to be crazy,
    Just don't let it drive you nuts

    My daughter wants to go on dates,
    I think I'll let her go.
    But she better not be moving at
    The moving picture show
    Or stop by all those conky tonks and
    Get inebriated.
    Ain't at all a caution, it's just
    Simply complicated

    Now I'm having a big problem
    With my present day career
    My ship she has a rudder
    But I don't know where to steer
    Am I country, pop or rock and roll
    I know they are related
    I'll just let you be the judge
    Of simply complicated

    Life is complicated with it
    Ifs and ands and buts
    It's alright to be crazy,
    Just don't let it drive you nuts

  9. Coastal Confessions

    Coastal Confessions
    By Jimmy Buffett

    Well I'm a tidal pool explorer
    From the days of my misspent youth
    I believe that down on the beach
    Where the seagulls preach
    Is where the Chinese buried the truth so I dig in the sand with my misguided hands
    And if I dig deep enough
    Hell I just might dig it up
    Talkin' 'bout treasure
    Talkin' 'bout pleasure
    Talkin' 'bout love

    Now I'm a reader of the night sky
    And a singer of inordinate tunes
    That's how I float across time
    Livin' way past my prime
    Like a long lost baby's balloon

    So I hang on to the string
    Work that whole gravity thing
    But when my spaceship goes pop
    Back to the earth I will drop
    Into the sea or the limbs of a tree
    Or the wings of my love

    CHORUS

    And I don't know what I'm supposed to do
    Maybe invent me a story or two
    I've got coastal confessions to make
    How 'bout you
    How 'bout you

    They say that time is like a river
    And stories are the key to the past
    But now I'm stuck in between
    Here at my typing machine
    Tryin' to come up with some words that will last

    It's so easy to see that we live history
    And if I just find the beat
    I know I'll land on my feet
    I always do hadn't got a clue
    Does it come from above

    And I don't know what I'm supposed to do
    Maybe invent me a story or two
    I've got coastal confessions to make
    How 'bout you
    How 'bout you

    BRIDGE

    So bless me father yes I have sinned
    Given the chance I'll prob'ly do it again
    I don't need absolution just a simple solution will do

    So let's talk about the future
    Or the consequences of my past
    I've got scars, I've got lines
    I'm not hard to define
    Just an altar boy coverin' his ass
    I know I can't run and hide
    But just hang on for the ride
    There will be laughter and tears
    As you progress through the years
    But still it's fun hey I'm not done
    Gonna dance till I fall

    CHORUS

    And I don't know what I'm supposed to do
    Maybe have me a boat drink or two
    It's good for coastal confessions I hear
    Tell the truth
    Tell the truth

    I've got some coastal confessions to make
    How 'bout you
    How 'bout you
    How 'bout you
    How 'bout you

  10. Sea Of Heartbreak (with George Strait)

    Sea Of Heartbreak
    By Hal David/Paul Hampton
    (with George Strait)

    The lights in the harbor
    Don't shine for me
    I'm like a lost ship
    Lost on the sea

    CHORUS

    The sea of heartbreak,
    Lost love and loneliness
    Memories of your caress,
    So divine,
    I wish you were mine
    Again my dear
    I'm on a sea of tears...
    A sea of heartbreak

    How did I lose you
    Where did I fail
    Why did you leave me
    Always to sail

    CHORUS

    BRIDGE

    Oh, what I'd give to sail back to shore
    Back to your arms once more
    So come to my rescue
    Come here to me
    Take me and keep me
    Away from this sea

    CHORUS

    The sea of heartbreak

  11. Conky Tonkin' (with Clint Black)

    Conky Tonkin'
    By Jimmy Buffett and Bingo Gubelman
    (with Clint Black)

    Bella was bored to death with South Beach
    Not one celebrity spotted in days
    She was tired of her mood
    Lunchin' on vegan food
    She was tired of just soakin' up rays then she saw him pull up to the stoplight
    In an old ragtop that she couldn't name
    He said "hop inside I'm headin' south take a ride
    I'm just the next man that you're gonna blame"
    U.S. 1, headin' down U.S. 1

    Lenny said how 'bout lunch in Key Largo
    There's a fish sandwich place down the road
    Kinda out in the sticks
    But we can be back by six
    And never leave our area code

    Well geography wasn't her strong point
    She'd never been past the Dadeland mall
    So they stopped on the way
    Lenny was happy to pay
    For her new thong and purple beach ball

    CHORUS

    They're goin' conky tonkin'
    Cruisin' on a weekend buzz
    Really conky tonkin'
    Doin' it just because

    BRIDGE

    Havin' too much fun to turn back
    They were explorers in a hot rod Ford
    They counted seabirds and cars
    Stopped at all the cool bars
    Harmonically they struck a chord

    Stop! What was that
    Somewhere in the middle of the Seven Mile Bridge
    He said bella do you want to see the rest
    She said "I haven't a care
    Lenny, just take me there"
    And they drove on all the way to Key West

    Well she'd never seen anything like it
    In all of her twenty-six years
    Bella was feeling the groove
    Lenny was makin' his move
    They were quite a pair of pioneers

    CHORUS

    They're goin' conky tonkin'
    Cruisin' down U.S. 1
    They'll be conky tonkin'
    Tryin' to catch up with the sun

    CHORUS

    They'll be conky tonkin'
    Their engine is about to explode
    Goin' conky tonkin'
    Hey they'll meet you at the end of the road

  12. Playin' The Loser Again (with Bill Withers)

    Playin' The Loser Again
    By Bill Withers (with Bill Withers)

    Don't break my heart again
    Let it end
    You don't love me
    Don't make me start again
    This achin' in my heart

    Don't make me hope again
    Knowin' when you've grown tired of me
    That you'll just disappear
    And leave me waiting here
    Playin' the loser again

    Don't give me hope, then take it away
    'Cause I'll show my weakness and beg you to stay
    Don't give me something to build all around
    Then just for a thrill, you tear it all down

    Don't make me dream again
    It's a sin to make love to me
    And then just disappear
    And leave me waiting here
    Playin' the loser again

    Don't give me hope, then take it away
    'Cause I'll show my weakness and beg you to stay
    Don't give me something to build all around
    Then just for a thrill, you tear it all down

    Don't make me hope again
    Knowin' when you've grown tired of me
    That you'll just disappear
    And leave me waiting here
    Playin' the loser again

  13. Window On The World

    Window On The World
    By John Hiatt

    A broken promise I kept too long
    A greasy shade and a curtain drawn
    A broken glass and a heart gone wrong
    That's my window on the world

    A cup of coffee in a shaky hand
    Wakin' up in a foreign land
    Tryin' to act like I got somethin' planned
    That's my window on the world

    That's my window on the world
    Could you stand a little closer, girl
    Don't let mama cut those curls
    That's my window on the world

    In broad daylight that circus tent
    Pulled up stakes, I don't know where it went
    A close dark room with a busted vent
    That's my window on the world

    I think about you when I'm countin' sheep
    I think about you, then I can't sleep
    I think the ocean is just so deep
    That's my window on the world

    That's my window on the world
    Could you stand a little closer, girl
    The Queen of Sheba meets the Duke of Earle
    That's my window on the world

    Down on Indiana Avenue
    Wes and Jimmy, man they played the Blues
    I guess they were only passin' through
    That's my window on the world

    That's my window on the world
    Could you stand a little closer, girl
    Don't let mama cut those curls
    That's my window on the world

    That's my window on the world
    Could you stand a little closer, girl
    The Queen of Sheba meets the Duke of Earle
    That's my window on the world

  14. Someone I Used To Love (with Nanci Griffith)

    Someone I Used To Love
    By Bruce Cockburn
    (with Nanci Griffith)

    All the days we've been together
    All the days we've been apart
    Add up to a bunch of nothing
    If I'm not still in your heart
    I never want you to be
    Just a page in my history
    Someone I used to love

    Your voice breathed in my ear
    Or on the telephone
    All the tender things we've whispered
    To keep from feeling alone
    May they never come to be
    Just cold gems set in memory
    Of someone I used to love

    This current flows between us
    That will not be denied
    You draw me in towards you
    Like the moon pulls at the tide
    May no shadow ever fall
    That will make me have to call
    You someone I used to love

  15. Scarlet Begonias

    Scarlet Begonias
    By Jerome Garcia/Robert Hunter

    As I was walkin' down Grosvenor Square,
    Not a chill to the winter but a nip in the air,
    From the other direction, she was calling my eye,
    Could be an illusion but I might as well try, might as well try.

    She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes.
    And I knew without askin' she was into the blues
    She wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls
    I knew right away she was not like other girls, other girls.

    In the heat of the evening when the dealing got rough,
    She was too pat to open and too cool to bluff.
    As I picked up my matches and was closing the door
    I had one of those flashes I'd been there before, been there before.

    CHORUS

    Well, I ain't often right but I've never been wrong
    Seldom turns out the way it does in a song.
    Once in a while you get shown the light
    In the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    Well there ain't nothing wrong with the way that she moves,
    Scarlet begonias or a touch of the blues.
    And there's nothing wrong with the look that's in her eye,
    I had to learn the hard way just to let her pass by, let her pass by.

    Well the wind in the willow's playin' "Tea for Two"
    Sky was yellow and the sun was blue,
    Strangers stoppin' strangers just to shake their hand,
    Everybody's playing in the heart of gold band, heart of gold band.

  16. Back To The Island

    Back To The Island
    By Leon Russell

    Now the day is gone,
    And I sit alone and think of you, girl
    What can I do without you in my life?
    Wond'ring if you love me,
    Or just making a fool of me
    Well I hope you understand,
    I just had to go back to the island

    And watch the sun go down
    Hear the sea roll in
    I'll be thinking of you
    And how it might have been
    Hear the night bird cry
    Watch the sunset down
    Well I hope you understand
    I just had to go back to the island

    For all the sunny skies, it's rainin' in my heart
    I know down in my soul I'm really gonna miss you,
    But it had to end this way,
    With all the games we played
    Well I hope you understand
    I just had to go back to the island

    And watch the sun go down
    Hear the sea roll in
    I'll be thinking of you
    And how it might have been
    Hear the night bird cry
    Watch the sunset down
    Well I hope you understand
    I just had to go back to the island.
