Rock n' Roll Pain Train

Rock n' Roll Pain Train

15 years on this lonely road
I paid my own way
I carried my own load
I never ask too much from no one
I was much too proud
All I ever wanted
Was to play my music for a sold out crowd

Bitches money fame
They say I had it all
6 foot 1
I walked around like I was 10 feet tall
Did you see me shine
Where the hell were you now
Detroit City back in '99
Stoned out of my mind

On that rock n' roll pain train
I had to slow things down
I live out in the woods now
It helps me keep my feet on the ground
Life's been good to me so far
Hope it's been kind to you
Stand strong in the storms of life
The sun will always shine on you

Now I've been rollin' on love and lust
I ride around on this million dollar bus
But this is just a bus man
I can't sleep at night
Man I miss my babies
And I'd really like to fuck my wife
But she ain't here tonight

On that rock n' roll pain train
After the lights go down
I live out in the woods now
It helps me keep my feet on the ground
Life's been good to me so far
Hope it's been kind to you
Stand strong in the storms of life
The sun will always shine on you

I've seen this train wreck
Time and time again
I felt its pain
I've seen it take my friends
You've got to stop and take a look man
Or life will pass you by
Get you a guitar and a good song
That's all you really need to ride

On that rock n' roll pain train
I can't slow it down
The music and the whiskey
Don't it make you wanna get loud
Life's been good to me so far
Hope it's been kind to you
Stand strong in the storms of life
The sun will always shine on you
The sun will always shine on you

Do It For You

Do It For You

Been sittin' alone
Thinking about the past
Another lonely night
Another empty glass
This path I'm walking
Always seems to lead nowhere
I wonder how much you think of me
How we used to laugh
How we used to be
It seems like freedom
Has never had a man so scared

Times might change
Love it comes and goes
How I wished I could have shown you
How deep for you my love goes
And I know this might seem crazy
I would end my life for you
You know I don't want to
But I'd do it for you
Hey I'd do it for you

I wonder how much you think of me
It hurts to think the past
Is all that you can see
Now it seems like freedom
Is better than the love we shared

(Repeat chorus)

Listen to me
I wonder how long it takes to see
There's nothing more I want
Then you here with me
Freedom's been knockin'
But I refuse to let her in

Times may change
Love it comes and goes
How I wished I would have shown you
How deep for you my love goes
And I know this might sound crazy
I would end my life for you
You know I want to
Come back home and care for you
Baby I'd do anything for you
I'd do anything for you

Son Of Detroit

Son Of Detroit

I like to play Hank Williams Jr. records just as loud as they will rock
I'm into Lynyrd Skynyrd, Run DMC, and D.J. Scott La'Rock
I like Willie, Waylon, George and Merle and a lot of ZZ TOP
I like country, soul, rock and roll and I love me some hip hop

I'm a redneck rock and roll son of Detroit
I don't like no new wave techno bands around
I'm a drink a couple dozen beers, go out and jam some gears
I'm a longhaired redneck rock and roll son of Detroit

I got Bourget and a west coast chopper that sure makes them bitches stare
Got a dead flamingo wrapped around this cowboy hat I wear
I like 2 cuss, yell, scream, fight, and raise all kinds of hell
And if you ride to live like I live to ride let me hear that rebel yell

(Repeat chorus)

I like my whiskey straight up daiquiris make me ill
And if someone touches my beaver skins I get mad enough to kill
I got a rifle rack in my pickup truck I'm a four wheelin' maniac
And if you wanna race name the place I'll show you where it's at

(Chorus)

I Am

I Am


Single Father

Single Father

Lately I've been spendin' lots of time with my kid
Tellin' him stories
About the things that we did
When we were a family
Long time ago
I've answered his questions
Till I'm blue in the face
Wish all the hurt in him
I could erase
But I tell him the truth
'Cause he ain't too young to know

Single father
Part time mother
When I'm not one
Then I'm the other
You used to be
My full time lover
Now I'm a single father
And a part time mother

I spend every minute
I can with my boy
There's no doubt about it
He's my pride and joy
Someday he'll grow up
And I won't have him no more
Some things I just find
Too hard to explain
So we go to McDonalds
Or I buy him a train
And we put it together
On the living room floor

Such is the life
Of a single father
He says daddy explain
If it's not too much bother
While it's just you and me
Living here in this home
I don't understand it
And either does he
Why there's just two
When there should be three of us
Sharing this moment
Lord I feel so alone

(Repeat chorus)

Hard Night For Sarah

Hard Night For Sarah

It's been a hard night for Sarah
The divorce went through today
Ten years out the window
She'd been faithful all the way
She's feeling really bitter
She's feeling lost and small
She wonders where it all went wrong
She can't seem to recall

It's been a hard night for Sarah
She's taken quite a fall

Well he was all she'd ever hoped for
And she gave him all she had
Never gave a cause to worry
Never hurt her or made her sad

And no one thought to tell her
They all figured that she knew
Just another harmless fling
A phase all men go through

It's been a hard night for Sarah
She's going to have to see it through
Gonna have to see it through

The sun is slowly rising
On another brand new day
The children will be waking soon
And she'll send them on their way

It's been a hard night for Sarah
It's been a hard night for Sarah
It's been a hard night for Sarah
But today's another day
Today's another day

Run Off To LA

Run Off To LA

This here ain't no love song
And it ain't for you
It's for the folks who relate to what I've been going thru
It's for the 40 hour overtime workin' man
And to the good women out there
I'll know you'll understand

Why don't you run off to LA and lose your mind
And get some energy doctor to tell you everything is fine
We can still be friends like you talk about
But first give me back them pearls
And the keys to my fuckin' house
Get out

They say
All we need is just a little patience
But what do you do when your woman is too high maintenance, yea
I'm a hatin' to admit it even if it's your wife
Tell her pack your shit
And take the first train out of my life

It's a classic line baby I just wanna be friends
But baby my friends don't have keys to my Mercedes Benz, no
I think I know what you mean
You wanna talk and such
Tell me all your problems
But we don't fuck
Ain't that right
I had plenty of friends before I met you
I don't need no more
So now I think it's time you started headin' out for the door
And even though I feel real bad tonight
Please pack your shit
And take the first train out of my life, oh yea

They say all we need is just a little patience, yea
But what do you do when your woman's too high maintenance
I know
I'm a hatin' to admit it even if it's your wife
Tell her to pack your bags
And take the first train out of my life

Why don't you run off to LA and lose your mind
You've got 15 minutes and I think you're wasting time, yea
It's easy to see when you've lost your mind
But here I'll be when you decide to come back blind
You were a Midwest girl who says she liked to drink beer and hang
And now you're walkin' red carpets talkin' New York hip hop slang
And even though I might break down and cry tonight
Please pack your shit and take the first train out of my life
Oh yea yea

Why don't you run off to LA

Feel Like Makin' Love

Feel Like Makin' Love

Baby, when I think about you
I think about love
Darlin', don't live without you
And your love
If I had those golden dreams
Of my yesterdays
I would wrap you in the heaven
'Til I'm dyin' on the way
Feel like makin'
Feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love to you
Baby, if I think about you
I think about love
Darlin' if I live without you
I live without love

If I had the sun and moon
I would give you both night and day
Of satisfyin'
Feel like makin'
Feel like makin'love
Feel like makin love to you
And if I had those golden dreams
Of my yesterdays
I would wrap you in the heaven
'Til I'm dyin' on the way
Feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love
(Repeat)
Feel like makin' love to you

Jackson, Mississippi

Jackson, Mississippi

And when the sunshine showed
Her face I felt like I was ready to die
Went lookin' for a place to hide
A hole I could crawl inside
Long lines
Whiskey bottles
And the same old song
I smell death in the air
And I know it won't be long

And I could say I'm tryin' to change
But that's just another lie
It's been a day and a half
And I'm still high

And I feel like
Jackson Mississippi
A river runnin'
Like Jackson Mississippi
A river runnin'
Jackson Mississippi
A river runnin'
Like Jackson Mississippi
A river runnin' through my veins

And when the daylight disappeared
I took a good look inside
Behind my pride
I sat down and cried
I know I'm not a fool
But I don't know what's wrong
Maybe it's time to pack
And just move on

And I could say I'm trying to change
But that's just another lie
I'm looking for someone
To tell me why

(Repeat chorus)

Cadillac Pussy (with Hank Williams, Jr.)

Cadillac Pussy (with Hank Williams, Jr.)

I seen a fly slimmy on the avenue
When I was on tour down in Baton Rouge
A mean little missy with an attitude
I played it smooth
No need to be rude
I stopped the ship
Stepped off like Chewie
Ran some game like Louie Louie
Talked her on the bus
Talked her out of her shorts
No lie y'all, I'm here 2 report…

She had some Cadillac pussy
Some Cadillac pussy
She had some Cadillac pussy
She had some Cadillac pussy
Man it would drive you wild

(Repeat first verse)

(Repeat chorus)

She had some Cadillac pussy
Man it would drive you wild
Cadillac pussy
Cadillac pussy
Cadillac pussy
Cadillac pussy
She had some Cadillac pussy
Man it would drive you wild

Black Bob

Black Bob

They used to call me names said I was just a wanna be
But now they all pay to see what they were gettin' free
How about them days and now you don't know what to say
Ain't it funny how the sun can shine and then hide away

And it's a long way on a they say highway
I'm still runnin'
A lonesome freeway of uncut my way
Can you feel me comin'
A tombstone ugly an if you'd judge me
Better watch 4 me comin'
In a '59 drop top blood red Cadillac

Knock knockin'
Black Bob at your door
Still rockin'
Everybody say that
Knock knockin'
Black Bobby at your door
Knock knockin'
Looking 4 the payback

They used 2 say that Ritchie boy he got no sense
But now they say oh Bobby man he was my best friend
Ain't it funny how the glory and the stories and the times can change
And no sense Ritchie just bought himself a big fuckin' airplane

(Repeat pre-chorus)

(Repeat chorus)

I grew up in the backwoods
Hung in the crack woods
Learned to pimp
Like a mack should
I could have been a rich man like pops
I never kissed ass
And those days since passed
Here I stand like Jesus
I don't need this
Fuck you ho's can squeeze this
I can't believe this
I'm so wasted
From all the fruits of life
That I've tasted
Never a clone on the microphone
I got shit built up
'Cause I never felt loved at home
And all alones how I spend my free time
Writin' freak rhymes
Drinkin' cheap wine
Easy Whips
And a cracker
I'm the master blaster
No one cuts faster
The king of disaster
Is who I am ho
And I'll be rippin' the fuckin' rhymes
And I'll make your mother shit her pants bro
So so
You better watch your back
Watch for me comin'
Watch for me comin'
In a '59 drop top blood red Cadillac

Knock knockin'
Black Bobby at your door
Still rockin'
Everybody say that
Knock knockin'
Black Bobby at your door
Knock knockin'
Looking for the payback
Knock knockin'
Hey Black Bobby
Knock knockin'
(Repeat)

Intro

Intro

Our lesson begins in the small town of Romeo Michigan 1985
Several years ago
Deep on the West side of Detroit
I rank souly with old and new school rules of hip hop
Don Balaw, Wes Chill and my DJ JC fresh
Rockin' microphones and turn tables day by day, and night by night
But still the force was not complete
That's when we met our homeboy by the name of Kid Rock
Others had doubts of the lad because he was white
But i knew what time it was
So i put him behind the tables and this is all he had to say

Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck.fuck off!

This is the History Of Rock

Rock n' Roll

Rock n' Roll

Break out the whiskey
And a bottle of wine
Take your shirt off bitch
And chop me out a line
Dim the lights down low
Turn up the stereo
Don’t say a word
I already know

You’ve never done this before
But you felt like tryin’
I’ve done this plenty of times
And I know you’re lyin’
You know I know

You want a shot
So I will take aim
Don’t even ask me
If I know your name
Don’t look so shocked
Do not be confused
I just wanna shoot your soul
Full of rhythm and blues

Them boys been selling you lines
But you ain’t been buyin’
But what I’m givin’ is free
So it’s well worth tryin’

Because I know you like to rock n’ roll
You like to rock n’ roll
I’ll rock you baby all night long
Then I gots to roll

There’s no one left here we can blame
It’s a lonely walk of shame
I know
We gonna rock and roll
Can you feel that
Can you feel that

Used to like to disco
Now you wanna rock n’ roll

Bus is leavin’ baby
We’re pullin’ out
Them Austin Dallas Houston girls
Are callin’ us out
Girl dry them eyes
I’m not good at goodbyes
Tell all your friends
I’m that type of guy
That’ll bring out the women
That you’ve been hidin’
It’s human nature to be
What we’ve all be denyin’

Baby don’t, sell tickets
To a player that’s already playin’
Just be who you are
But understand what I’m sayin’

Everybody likes to rock n’ roll
They like to rock n’ roll
Rock n’ roll
They wanna rock n’ roll
Rock n’ roll
They like to rock n’ roll
Love me baby all night long

Cold and Empty

Cold and Empty

Maybe I've been on the road too long
Livin' my life through these songs
I guess lovin' a music man
Really wasn't in your plans
Does it matter if I'm sorry again

And why should I apologize
You knew all along this was my life
You know my ins and outs
All of my fears and doubts
It's the life I love
But it's you I can't live without

And this whole world seems cold and empty
Someone please turn on the lights
Lord if there's an angel you could send me
I could use one here tonight

Now where am I supposed to go
My only home was in your soul
I know that I can't stay here
And drown in a pool of tears
Should I pack my pride
And face this life alone

And this whole world seems cold and empty
Someone please turn on the lights
Lord if there's an angel you could send me
I could use one here tonight

Maybe it's me who's cold and empty
And in my darkness I cannot see the light
Please God if there's an angel you could send me
'Cause there's one missin' from my life

You are my heart, you are my soul
Wherever you are that's where I go
You know my ins and outs
All of my fears and doubts
It's the life I love
But it's you I can't live without
Yea it's the life I love
But it's you I can't live without
Baby it's the life I love
But it's you I can't live without
The life I love
The life I love
But it's you I can't live without

Hillbilly Stomp

Hillbilly Stomp

I'm drunk again
Excuse the hiccup
The redneck originator rollin' in my pickup
Truck jacked up with the four gold shocks
And where I come from mud flaps come stock

People Kid Rock it up and down the block
And the hens all flock to the coup with the cock
You wanna rock with me baby
Row it down to the swamp
Dock your boat
We'll do the hillbilly stomp
We'll do the hillbilly stomp

I like Stuckies, truckers and big mesh hats
I like large round women in laundromats
I like to wander jack
Like a backwoods thug
And watch the moonshine through the bottom of a jug
Huggin' and kissin' with my vision all blurry
Siftin' through this world of worry
Hurry up with love
Please God bless
I don't do drugs anymore
Or any less
I didn't start this mess on this planet
Stop lookin' at me like a bandit
I've been chillin'
Down at the swamp
With the folks that want to do the hillbilly stomp
Do it
We'll do the hillbilly stomp

Now people wanna know how to do this dance
Lift your legs in the air like you wet your pants
Plant your hands on the top of your butt
And stomp around the woods like you're all fucked up
Circle up the trucks
Fire up the brush
Untuck your shirt
We're gonna kick some dust
Don't two plus two it
Or three plus three it
Four by four to a place that's scenic
Heat it up hot like some ham hocks cookin'
And hop to the spot where the cops ain't lookin'
Bring your whole flock down to the stomp
And we can rock all night doing the hillbilly stomp
Do it
We'll do the hillbilly stomp
We'll do the hillbilly stomp
