Headed out west to start a new life Got forty dollars my watch and my knife Headed on down that road I'm a travelin’ boy who’s got soul Never said that I could sing the blues Listen to me honey, I got em blue suede shoes Blue suede shoes... Love to listen to that Rock and Roll Come on everybody I’ll teach you how it goes Listen to me once, and listen to me twice We can boogie on down all through the night Oh no! Love to listen to that country honk ‘Cause em honky tonk women wrote this song I come from the land that's deep in the roots From the Mississippi River On down to your boots Love em good times and I let 'em roll Rollin on down and not rollin slow Hoppin’ on a jet plane we’re goin to France Floatin’ away in a dream like stance I know how to smile and I do it best When I’m playin good music my soul’s at rest Blue suede shoes...

Hey sister, Where'd ya go? You went down to the rodeo Hey Jane, I'm going insane.. By the way, did i tell ya that i lost my brain? And after-hours When you left me I don't wanna talk to you Don't want your sympathy Stay away child, you won't choke me anymore With your sinister smile, in the candy store! Hey brother bill! Throw me a thrill, I'm chasing buffalo and my eyes are sinking low Hey Peggy Lou What do ya wanna do? Have ya been around town? Where the trees make no sound You've stayed to long, Will ya please go away? What do ya want from me? When the leaves turn to grey Stay outta my room You're not wanted anymore Get outta my head! And close the black door! Cause I’m floating in a river A lake of fire She’s got rotten teeth That play with desire Avalon lives in a blind paradox Weaving away his brain Living out of a box Cause I’m floating in a river A lake of fire She’s got rotten teeth That play with desire! Hey, Brother Mike, Why'd ya hit me with a spike? Straight into my head, Are you alive when your dead? Hey, Karla Marla Are you really rock n' roll? Well, its kinda hard to move fast When the sidewalks movin' slow! And after tonight, I'll climb over the moon in ecstasy I'll get away from them memories I'll hop on the train Heading down the track I’ve got a one way ticket and I’m never coming back!

If I happened to have a nickel for every song that didn't come true If I blamed all of my problems on the rich like you all do If I grew up without a penny or a shirt on my back I'd say this is what life is and this is where I'm at This is life, so let it be This is life, for you and me If I grew up to be wealthy with a silver spoon in my mouth And I had all of the riches you could dig up from the South If I grew up to be pampered i would sit around and get fat I'd say this is what life is and this is where I'm at This is life, so let it be This is life, for you and me

Hey Miss Mama dressed in pain Coming at me half insane Hey there Marlboro, cowboy at dawn Won't you sing me your best folk song? Hey oh hey, my oh my Stay away honey, I'm alright Hey Mr. Moonlight, how you shine so bright Wont you fill my heart with delight Hey Miss Mother Earth, and all them gifts you bring Thank em heavens for all them diamond rings Hey oh hey, my oh my Stay away honey, I'm alright On a river bed, heard my baby She was laughing and I was lazy On a desert plane, saw a great escape Saw the sun as it shown up on my face Hey oh hey, my oh my Stay away honey, I'm alright

Sittin' on the sun, drinking all day long Sittin' on the moon, awaiting my doom My hair is growing gray, but I've got nothing to say And everybody's in the house of broken sin I can't recall your name did you really enjoy the fame? 'Cause every Saturday the children come and play In my garden field with the rose peels and the seals 'Cause we are the bearded bums, laughing all day long We are the youthful men who have nothing to spend Chillin' at the bone as the blue birds moan Grass is growing high, teardrops flood her eyes The sound escapes her cheeks, and I'm left in the streets Thinkin' to myself, how can I get out of hell? I wanna see the sky, I wanna see you fly 'Cause every Saturday the children come and play In my garden field with the rose peels and the seals 'Cause we are the bearded bums, laughing all day long We are the youthful men, who have nothing to spend Oh we are the bearded bums, come and sing our songs We are the sinful men, who have come to repent Oh we're the bearded bums, come and sing our songs Hey we're the bearded bums, come and sing our songs
