Love Stuff Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Where The Devil Don't Go

Cast me down where the devil don't go
Devil don't go where I make my home
Cast me down where the devil don't go
Devil don't go where I make my home

Drown my woes in a lake of fire
Sing a song gonna take me higher
Drown my woes in a lake of fire
Sing a song gonna take me higher

Good lord turned his back on me
Lucifer gonna set me free
Good lord turned his back on me
Lucifer gonna set me free

It's a mean world that I've known
Never got no good doing what I'm told
It's a mean world that I've known
Now you'll find me where the devil don't go
Where the devil don't go

Preacher man won't cut no slack
Called my demons but gave them back
Preacher man won't cut no slack
Called my demons but gave them back

Bruised my knees getting down to pray
Warm the pan til my judgement day
Bruised my knees getting down to pray
Warm the pan til my judgement day

It's a mean world that I've known
Never got no good doing what I'm told
It's a mean world that I've known
Now you'll find me where the devil don't go
Where the devil don't go

Cast me down where the devil don't go
Devil don't go where I make my home
Cast me down where the devil don't go
Devil don't go where I make my home

It's a mean world that I've known
Never got no good doing what I'm told
It's a mean world that I've known
Now you'll find me where the devil don't go

It's a mean world that I've known
Never got no good doing what I'm told
It's a mean world that I've known
Now you'll find me where the devil don't go
Where the devil don't go

Cast me down where the devil don't go
Devil don't go where I make my home
Cast me down where the devil don't go
Devil don't go where I make my home

Ex's & Oh's

Well, I had me a boy, turned him into a man
I showed him all the things that he didn't understand
Whoa, and then I let him go

Now, there's one in California who's been cursing my name
'Cause I found me a better lover in the UK
Hey, hey, until I made my getaway

One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
'Cause I'm the best baby that they never gotta keep
One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
They always wanna come, but they never wanna leave

Ex's and the oh, oh, oh's they haunt me
Like ghosts they want me to make 'em all
They won't let go
Ex's and oh's

I had a summer lover down in New Orleans
Kept him warm in the winter, left him frozen in the spring
My, my, how the seasons go by

I get high, and I love to get low
So the hearts keep breaking, and the heads just roll
You know that's how the story goes

One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
'Cause I'm the best baby that they never gotta keep
One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
They always wanna come, but they never wanna leave

Ex's and the oh, oh, oh's they haunt me
Like ghosts they want me to make 'em all
They won't let go

My ex's and the oh, oh, oh's they haunt me
Like ghosts they want me to make 'em all
They won't let go
Ex's and oh's

One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
Coming over mountains and a-sailing over seas
One, two, three, they gonna run back to me
They always wanna come, but they never wanna leave

My ex's and the oh, oh, oh's they haunt me
Like ghosts they want me to make 'em all
They won't let go

Ex's and the oh, oh, oh's they haunt me
Like ghosts they want me to make 'em all
They won't let go
Ex's and oh's

Under The Influence

Just another morning
With shaky hands, pounding head
I guess I did it again
Try to leave, but I can't stand
Start to think that I'm better off dead
I'm sick of this condition
Your kiss is my addiction
I can tell you cast a spell that knows no moderation
It's dangerous, the things we do

Under the influence, I got no defense
It might be criminal, but still I just can't quit
Under the influence, I'll take the consequence
Well if it's poisonous, let it take my last breath

Under the influence

Temptation, creeping up on me
Gets under my skin, won't let me be
Haunt my days and haunt my sleep, viciously unrelenting
Oh, lay down again
Oh, give in again
And oh, feel good again
Begging for another beautiful sin
It's dangerous, the things we do

Under the influence, I got no defense
It might be criminal, but still I just can't quit
Under the influence, I'll take the consequence
Well if it's poisonous, let it take my last breath

Under the influence, the walls are closing in
It's inevitable, but I can't see him
leaving out the destruction of your love
Oh, oh

Under the influence, I got no defense
It might be criminal, but still I just can't quit
Under the influence, I'll take the consequence
Well if it's poisonous, let it take my last breath

Under the influence, I'll take the consequence
Well if it's poisonous, let it take my last breath

Under the influence
Under the influence
Under the influence

Last Damn Night

I got one hand on the bottle, and one foot in the grave
It's been too long since I stepped, but I I I ain't got time to waste
Three long days, boy you'd better break
When that light shines on you
Gonna want to stay forever and a day, but it's the night I belong to
Well the clock keeps ticking, and your time is running out
Well the clock keeps ticking, and your time is running running running running

So, I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night
When the clock strikes twelve, we're all gonna go to hell
Said I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night
I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night!

Well I'm five seconds closer to living six feet deep,
There's seven steps to Heaven, but that stairway is just to skip
Oh, my my everybody dies, but you know that I don't want to
You get eight long lives, boy you gonna cry when the knife breaks your arm
Well the clock keeps ticking, and your time is running out
Well the clock keeps ticking, and your time is running running running running

So, I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night
When the clock strikes twelve, we're all gonna go to hell
Said I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night
I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night!

But the clock keeps ticking,
You pretend that you're ready to go
Well it's ticking down, and slow
I know I'll ever die, is gon' hold me
'Cause I'm running running running running

So, I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night
When the clock strikes twelve, we're all gonna go to hell
Said I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night
I'm gonna live my life like it's my last damn night!

Kocaine Karolina

Kocaine Karolina down to your bones
Fireworks in your heart make it far from home
Every morning you wake up alone just the same
Who would wanna live longer anyway

Oooooo
Easy days will come
When you rest your heavy soul
Oooooo
Easy days will come
When your hard living is done

Poke your skinny spirit to keep a man
Whats left of your flesh slipped from his hand
Lonely looking eyes have done you wrong
Don't waste a way until your gone

Oooooo
Easy days will come
When you rest your heavy soul
Oooooo
Easy days will come
When your hard living is done

Oooooo
Easy days will come
When you rest your heavy soul
Oooooo
Easy days will come
When your hard living is done

Kocaine Karoline
Your down to your bones
Don't waste away until your gone
Don't waste away until your gone

Song Of Sorrow

Made my way to past a man's hollow
Even though it was too soon
And all the kings men say there's no tomorrow so
I follow the sorrow song of the moon

Scriptures singin' man I can't seem to find my way back home
It's been a hundred years I've no idea which direction to go
This is my song of sorrow
This is my song of sorrow

This is my song of sorrow

Weak and wide eyed my pride is swallowed
I'm beggin' for my hearts last beat
And I'm repaying all the time I've borrowed
So forever the sorrow song I sing

Scriptures singin' man I can't seem to find my way back home
It's been a hundred years I've no idea which direction to go
This is my song of sorrow
This is my song of sorrow

Song of sorrow
Song of sorrow
Song of sorrow

Scriptures singin' man I can't seem to find my way back home
It's been a hundred years I've no idea which direction to go
Scriptures singin' man I can't seem to find my way back home
It's been a hundred years I've no idea which direction to go
This is my song of sorrow
This is my song of sorrow

This is my song of sorrow

America's Sweetheart

No there ain't nothing that I gotta prove
You think your words will make me black and blue
But I, I think im pretty with these old boots on
I think its funny when I drink too much, hey
You try and change me you can go to hell
Cause I don't want to be nobody else
I like the chip I got in my front teeth
And I got bad tattoos you won't believe

So kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole
Gonna lose control tonight

What do you want from me, I'm not america's sweetheart
So beat the drum with me, I'm not america's sweetheart

Well they say I'm too loud for this town
So I lit a match and burned it down

What do you want from me, I'm not americas sweet heart
But you love me anyway

My hands are dirty and my heart is cold the boys
I've been with say I got no soul, when I,
I meet another honey at the bar,
I'll think its funny when I break his heart, mmm now,
My kind of medicine is whiskey straight,
I got a mouth to put you in your place, and they,
They said I'll never be the poster type,
But they don't make posters of my kind of life

So kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole
Gonna lose control tonight

What do you want from me, I'm not americas sweetheart
So beat the drum with me, I'm not americas sweetheart

Well they say I'm too loud for this town
So I lit a match and burned it down

What do you want from me, I'm not americas sweetheart, but you love me anyway

You love me anyway [x2]

Kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole, holler if you ready,
Gonna lose control

Kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole,
Gonna lose control tonight

What do you want from me, I'm not americas sweetheart
So beat the drum with me, I'm not americas sweetheart

Well they say I'm too loud for this town
So I lit a match and burned it down

What do you want from me, I'm not americas sweetheart, but you love me anyway

You love me anyway [x2]

I'm not americas sweetheart

I Told You I Was Mean

I lied to you
I never cried for you
I swear that I tried to
But I had better things to do
Now you're on the road with your painful load
And the words I spoke left your big heart broken

You know you still bother
Because love is for the poor
So I left you knocking outside my front door

You knew what this was
I don't want you anymore
I warned you before, warned you before
Well I, I coulda sworn I told you I was mean

You were a sweet old thing
And I was lonely, so I let you hold me for
A limited time only.
You see, you're nothing to me

Cause I'll always be a bad, bad seed
And you know you still bother
Because love is for the poor
So I left you knocking outside my front door

You knew what this was
I don't want you anymore
I warned you before, I warned you before
Well I coulda sworn I told you I was mean

Dum-de-dum dum-dum
I'm just a mean old thing
Dum-de-dum dum-dum

I know you still bother
Because love is for the poor
So cut out your knocking
Cause I will never come
I will never come to the door

You knew just what this was
And I don't want you forever more
I warned you before, baby
I warned you before, oh honey
Well I coulda sworn I told you I was mean

Dum-de-dum dum-dum
I'm just a mean old thing
Dum-de-dum dum-dum

Ain't Gonna Drown

Train's coming but I'm stuck on this road
Moon's rising and my blood is growing cold
Preacher man can't save a soul like mine
Miracles are just too damn hard to find

Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Cause the good lord ain't bringing me home

I'm bound for the broken promise land
To meet my demons and get back my upper hand
Long man can't catch a soul like mine
Miracles are just too damn hard to find

Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Cause the good lord ain't bringing me home

Long man can't catch a soul like mine
Miracles are just too damn hard to find

Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Cause the good lord ain't bringing me home

Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Cause the good lord ain't bringing me home

Jackson

Momma's dead and gone
Papa ain't there
Momma's dead and gone
And Papa don't care
Brother buried his head
Pocket full of shotgun shells
It's just a merry man
Stuck in that whiskey well

[Chorus]
What's left of my backbone
Is building this broken home
Building it up
Just to leave me
Said he could change me
How could you blame me
Not breaking the law
To break free
So please
Take Jackson out of me

Sister lays her head
She's just a little queen
She don't do many things
But she sure can sing
Your hopeless soul
Begging for more time
Grab a dive and get old
Too bad you ain't the killing kind

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
For this country wears me down
There's nothing left for me in this town
These dreams are made
Before I went
For I won't waste no more time
Yeah!

[Chorus]

[Outro]
Take Jackson out of me [2x]

Make You Smile

I like what you do and I like that you keep doin' it
Your eyes look mighty fine I really think I'm losin' it
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Pretty boy, don't be shy
Like all your bad ideas
Ain't this a nice surprise to find a man so dear
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Say you'll be my baby and I'll be your girl and
You can have this heart of mine,
'Cause I would walk a thousand miles
Just to make you smile

You taste like sugar mints and cigarettes and beer
I used to hate this town but I'll stay because you're here
oh oh oh
oh oh oh
All them skinny girls are bitter and reserved
If you want a lot of love then I'm just what you deserve
oh oh oh
oh oh oh
oh oh oh
oh oh oh

Say you'll be my baby and I'll be your girl and
You can have this heart of mine,
'Cause I would walk a thousand miles
If you say you'll be my baby, I will be your girl and
You can have this heart of mine,
'Cause I would walk a thousand miles
Just to make you smile
Just to make you smile

See You Again

You were standing there
Fire in your eyes
As you held me in
Said, "Sorry, I didn't write"
We've got seven days
'Til we say goodbye
Back to separate ways
I'll miss you more this time.

So won't you stay
Til the morning
I've been frozen since that night you sang with me,
One more day
For you to hold me
'Cause I don't know when I'll see you again.

How was I to guess
I'd still be on your mind?
Enough to bring you here
And prove I wasn't right
We don't need to know
The future isn't ours
When we both let go
I'll hear you in the bars.

So won't you stay
Til the morning
I've been frozen since that night you sang with me,
One more day
For you to hold me
'Cause I don't know when I'll see you again.
