Jon Langston – Young & Reckless Lyrics

Hey man, toss me a cold one We wear cowboy boots and wrangled jeans. Caught the fish, bout everything. Trucks are loud, beers are cold. Like to raise hell off and on the road. West Virginia to Caroline, down the bergys south Georgia’s line, there’s a few down there just like me. No matter where you go you’ll always see Good old boys with a wild side, rowdy friends makin good times. Haulin on, no self relax. Come on y’all we’re the young and wreckless Young, young and reckless. (x2) After work on Friday night, see what trouble we might find. Call up the boys, we at this bout, catch a little buzz at the spot down town. And later that night we head to the farm, get a little crazy in a beer red barn. Screamin Hank with the rebel will. The girls get hot, spillin th...

Pete Seeger – John Hardy Lyrics

John Hardy was a desperate little man He carried two guns ev’ry day He shot down a man on that West Virginia line You oughta seen John Hardy gettin’ away You oughta seen John Hardy gettin’ away John Hardy stood in that old baroom So drunk that he could not see And a man walked up and took him by the arm He said, “Johnny, come and go along with me Poor boy, Johnny, come and walk along with me.” John Hardy stood in his old jail cell The tears running down from his eyes He said, “I’ve been the death of many a poor boy But my six-shooters never told a lie No, my six-shooters never told a lie The first one to visit John Hardy in his cell Was a little girl dressed in blue She came down to that old jail cell She said, “Johnny, I’ve been true ...

Della Mae – Ain’t No Ash Will Burn Lyrics

I have seen snow that fell in May And I have seen rain on cloudless days Somethings are always bound to change There ain’t no ash will burn Love is a precious thing I’m told It burns just like West Virginia coal But when the fire dies down it’s cold There ain’t no ash will burn You say this life is not your lot Well I can’t be something that I’m not We can’t stoke a fire that we ain’t got There ain’t no ash will burn In every life there comes a time Where there are no more tears to cry We must leave something dear behind There ain’t no ash will burn There is one lesson I have learned There ain’t no ash will burn

John Denver – Take Me Home, Country Roads lyrics

Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River. Life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze. Country roads, take me home to the place I belong. West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads. All my memories gather round her, miner’s lady, stranger to blue water. Dark and dusty, painted on the sky, misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye. Country roads, take me home to the place I belong. West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads. I hear her voice in the morning hour, she calls me, the radio reminds me of my home far away. And driving down the road I get a feeling that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday. Country roads, take me home to the place I belong. West Virginia, mou...

Dave Evans Solo – She Comes Into The Station lyrics

Well She comes into the station, Talking about her life. Yes she comes into the station, Talking about her life. Just a littler girl from Denver. Her mother was from Maine. Her daddy up and left her. Never been the same. Well She comes into the station, Talking about her life. Yes she comes into the station, Talking about her life. About her brother on the needle. Her mother cried it out. And her sister being lonely. Never finding out. About her uncle doing cold turkey. An Aunt ready for the grave. And a cousin in the army. Trying to prove he’s brave. Well She comes into the station, Talking about her life. Yes she comes into the station, Talking about her life. About a baby boy in Oklahoma. Doesn’t even know his name. Another back in West Virginia. And a third back in Maine. T...

Chris Stapleton – Scarecrow In The Garden

[Verse 1] Well he came from Northern Ireland Searching for the free man’s ground And he came to bet his fortune On a West Virginia plow He built a house of timber And raised a redhead son Then they worked the land together And prayed the rain would come [Chorus] There’s a scarecrow in the garden That looks like Lucifer And I’ve been reading Revelations With my bare feet in the river [Verse 2] Well the redhead’s son got older And took a brown eyed wife And the fields were green as dollars Cause the dirt was black as night I came in late September The youngest one of three And my sisters off and married So the land was left to me [Chorus] There’s a scarecrow in the garden That looks like Lucifer And I’ve been reading Revelations With my bare feet in the r...
