Seven Bridges Road – The Eagles

Let’s just hope it’s not the Konigsberg bridges, or you’ll be stuck crossing them.

Lyrics:

There are stars
In the Southern sky
Southward as you go
There is moonlight
And moss in the trees
Down the Seven Bridges Road

Now I have loved you like a baby
Like some lonesome child
And I have loved you in a tame way
And I have loved you wild

Sometimes there’s a part of me
Has to turn from here and go
Running like a child from these warm stars
Down the Seven Bridges Road

There are stars in the Southern sky
And if ever you decide
You should go
There is a taste of thyme sweetened honey
Down the Seven Bridges Road

Rocky Mountain Way – Joe Walsh

Climbing those Rocky Mountains on the way to Hotel California.

Lyrics:

Spent the last year
Rocky Mountain way
Couldn’t get much higher
Out to pasture
Think it’s safe to say
Time to open fire

And we don’t need the ladies
Cryin’ ’cause the story’s sad
‘Cause the Rocky Mountain way
Is better than the way we had
Whoa-oh-oh

Well, he’s tellin’ us this
And he’s tellin’ us that
Changes it ev’ry day
Says it doesn’t matter
Bases are loaded
And Casey’s at bat
Playin’ it play-by-play
Time to change the batter

And we don’t need the ladies
Cryin’ ’cause the story’s sad, uh huh
Rocky Mountain way
Is better than the way we had
Yeah-ah-ah

Can’t You See – The Marshall Tucker Band

Good Lord, thanks for those freight trains. At least there’s away to get away from her.

Lyrics:

Gonna take a freight train
Down at the station, Lord
I don’t care where it goes
Gonna climb a mountain
The highest mountain
Jump off, nobody gonna know

Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me

I’m gonna find me
A hole in the wall
I’m gonna crawl inside and die
‘Cause my lady, now
A mean ol’ woman, Lord
Never told me goodbye

Can’t you see, oh, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me

I’m gonna buy a ticket, now
As far as I can
Ain’t a-never comin’ back
Ride me a southbound
All the way to Georgia, now
Till the train, it run out of track

Can’t you see, oh, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me

Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, whoa, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me

Can’t you see (oh, she’s such a crazy lady), can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see (Lord, I can’t stand), can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me

Can’t you see (I’m gonna take a freight train), can’t you see (down at the station, Lord)
What that woman, she been doin’ to me (ain’t never comin’ back)
Can’t you see (gonna ride me a southbound, now), can’t you see (all the way to Georgia, Lord)
What that woman, she been doin’ to me (till the train run out of track)

One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer – George Thorogood

I’ll take one of each, and then some more. It’s Friday after all.

Lyrics:

Wanna tell you a story,
About the house-man blues
I come home one Friday,
Had to tell the landlady I done lost my job
She said that don’t confront me,
Long as I get my money next Friday
Now next Friday come I didn’t get the rent,
And out the door I went

So I goes to the landlady,
I said, “You let me slide?”
I’ll have the rent for you tomorrow
Or the next day I don’t know
So said let me slide it on you know people,
I notice when I come home in the evening
She ain’t got nothing nice to say to me,
But for five year she was so nice
Lord she was lovey-dovey,
I come home one particular evening
The landlady said, “You got the rent money yet?”,
I said, “No, can’t find no job,
Therefore I ain’t got no money to pay the rent”
She said “I don’t believe you’re tryin’ to find no job”
Said “I seen you today you was standin’ on a corner,
Leaning up against a post”
I said “But I’m tired, I’ve been walkin’ all day”
She said “That don’t confront me,
Long as I get my money next Friday”
Now next Friday come I didn’t have the rent,
And out the door I went

So I go down the streets,
Down to my good friend’s house
I said “Look man I’m outdoors you know,
Can I stay with you maybe a couple days?”
He said “Uh, let me go and ask my wife”
He come out of the house,
I could see it in his face
I know that was no
He said “I don’t know man, ah she kinda funny, you know”
I said “I know, everybody funny, now you funny too”
So I go back home
I tell the landlady I got a job, I’m gonna pay the rent
She said “Yeah?” I said “Oh yeah”
And then she was so nice,
Lord, she was lovey-dovey
So I go in my room, pack up my things and I go,
I slip on out the back door and down the streets I go
She a-howlin’ about the front rent, she’ll be lucky to get any back rent,
She ain’t gonna get none of it
So I stop in the local bar you know people,
I go to the bar, I ring my coat, I call the bartender
Said “Look man, come down here”, he got down there
So what you want?

One bourbon, one scotch, one beer
Well I ain’t seen my baby since I don’t know when,
I’ve been drinking bourbon, whiskey, scotch and gin
Gonna get high man, I’m gonna get loose,
Need me a triple shot of that juice
Gonna get drunk, don’t you have no fear
I want one bourbon, one scotch and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer

But I’m sitting now at the bar,
I’m getting drunk, I’m feelin’ mellow
I’m drinkin’ bourbon, I’m drinkin’ scotch, I’m drinkin’ beer
Looked down the bar, here come the bartender
I said “Look man, come down here”
So what you want?

One bourbon, one scotch, one beer
No, I ain’t seen my baby since the night before last,
Gotta get a drink man, I’m gonna get gassed
Gonna get high man, I ain’t had enough,
Need me a triple shot of that stuff
Gonna get drunk, won’t you listen right here,
I want one bourbon, one shot and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer

Now by this time I’m plenty high,
You know when your mouth a-getting dry you’re plenty high
Looked down the bar I say to my bartender
I said “Look man, come down here”, he got down there
So what you want this time?
I said “Look man, a-what time is it?”
He said “The clock on the wall say three o’clock.
Last call for alcohol, so what you need?”

One bourbon, one scotch, one beer
No, I ain’t seen my baby since a nigh’ on a week,
Gotta get drunk man, so I can’t even speak
Gonna get high man, listen to me,
One drink ain’t enough Jack, you better make it three
I wanna get drunk, I’m gonna make it real clear,
I want one bourbon, one scotch and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer

Lonely Is The Night – Billy Squier

Get a drinking buddy and you’ll never be lonely in the night again.

Lyrics:

Lonely is the night when you find yourself alone
Your demons come to light and your mind is not your own
Lonely is the night when there’s no one left to call
You feel the time is right–(say) the writin’s on the wall

It’s a high time to fight when the walls are closin’ in
Call it what you like–It’s time you got to win
Lonely, lonely, lonely–your spirit’s sinkin’ down
You find you’re not the only stranger in this town

Red lights, green lights, stop ‘n go jive
Headlines, deadlines jammin’ your mind
You been stealin’ shots from the side
Let your feelin’s go for a ride

There’s danger out tonight..the man is on the prowl
Get the dynamite…the boys are set to prowl
Lonely is the night when you hear the voices call
Are you ready for a fight–do you wanna take it all

Slowdown, showdown–waitin’ on line
Showtime, no time for changin’ your mind
Streets are ringin’, march to the sound
Let your secrets follow you down

Somebody’s watchin’ you baby–so much you can do
Nobody’s stoppin’ you baby, from makin’ it too
One glimpse’ll show you now baby, what the music can do
One kiss’ll show you now baby–it can happen to you

No more sleepin’, wastin’ our time
Midnight creepin’s first on our minds
No more lazin’ ’round the tv
You’ll go crazy–come out with me

Bad Company – Bad Company

It’s as bad as it gets. And I mean it in a good way.

Lyrics:

Company, always on the run
Destiny is the rising sun
Oh, I was born a shotgun in my hands
Behind the gun I’ll make my final stand
That’s why they call me

Bad company
And I can’t deny
Bad company
Till the day I die
Oh, till the day I die
Till the day I die

Rebel souls, deserters we are called
Chose a gun and threw away the sun
Now these towns, well they all know our name
The death punch sound, is our claim to fame
That’s why they call me

Bad company
I can’t deny
Bad, bad company
Till the day I die,
Until the day I die,
Until the day I die,
Until the day I die

Eye for an eye
Tooth for a tooth
Blood for blood
We’ve all gotta die
We’ve all gotta die

That’s why they call me
Bad company
I won’t deny
Bad, bad company
Till the day I die

Bad company
I won’t deny
Bad, bad company
Till the day I die
Until the day I die
Until the day I die
Until the day I die
