Lyrics from the album "Few Miles On"

Movin' On

Music & Lyrics by Philip Hall, Larry Alder & Randall Rittenberry

 

I’m moving on, I believe it’s about time 

I’m moving on, I believe it’s about time 

Ain’t gonna put up with no more cheating and lying 

 

You been acting like you’ve got nothing to lose 

You’re misbehaving Baby,  ain’t no excuse 

I’m moving on, I believe it’s about time 

Ain’t gonna put up with no more cheating and lying 

 

Everybody told me, about your other man 

I used to love you, Baby,

Now I’m making plans to move on, 

I believe it’s about time,

Ain’t gonna put up with no more cheating and lying 

 

I’m gonna quit you baby, you know it’s true 

I’ll find a good woman, and forget about you 

I’m moving on, I believe it’s about time 

Ain’t gonna put up with no more cheating and lying

 

I’m moving on, I believe it’s about time  

I’m moving on, I believe it’s about time  

Ain’t gonna put up with No more cheating and lying 

 

Hard Woman To Please

Music & Lyrics by Philip Hall, Larry Alder & Randall Rittenberry

 

I’m workin’ every day, And I never refuse, 

Overtime every night, I take good care of you 

But you’re never satisfied 

You got to have more, No matter how I try 

I may not be a rich man, Baby can’t you see? 

Nobody can love you like I do, 

You’re a hard woman to please 

A hard woman to please 

 

I tried to find a way, To be the man you want 

I put you above myself, Put you at number one 

No matter how I sacrifice 

You got your eye on another man, Don’t you dare deny 

I may not be a rich man, Baby can’t you see? 

Nobody loves you like I do, 

You’re a hard woman to please 

A hard woman to please 

 

Listen here now Baby, It’s time we had a talk, 

There’s a sweet little woman, Says I’m number one 

While you been lookin’ around, I been lookin’ too 

And I found somebody, To love me better than you 

I may not be a rich man, But now I see 

You never loved me, it’s true 

You’re a hard woman to please 

A hard woman to please

 

These Old Shoes

Music & Lyrics by Randall Rittenberry, Philip Hall & Larry Alder

 

Darlin’ don’t you judge a man ‘til you walk in his shoes 

Every pair has a story they all tell the truth 

Where I’ve been, what I’ve done, each scuff, and every stain 

Proof of where I’ve been ain’t nothing I would change 

 

I’ve been around the world in these old shoes 

And I doubled down in these old shoes 

Seen love and fire in these old shoes 

Been a thousand miles in these old shoes 

Got a thousand more to go 

 

People come and people go, they don’t stick around 

The good ones are like my old shoes, they never let you down 

Each step I take I know for sure they’re with me all the way 

The soles have got a lot of wear from walking every day

Never Hold You Back

 Music & Lyrics by Philip Hall, Larry Alder & Randall Rittenberry

 

It must not have been easy to smile through the pain 

No one ever saw you crying, No one heard you complain 

You just held it all together and prayed that I would change 

 

I would never hold you back 

Never stand in your way 

If you’d rather be free than stay here with me 

I would never hold you back 

 

I know I took you for granted so many times 

You did not deserve to be treated so unkind 

I should have seen this coming 

Could I have been so blind? 

 

Borrowed Trouble

Music & Lyrics by Philip Hall, Larry Alder & Randall Rittenberry

 

You’re leaving, but I can’t let you go. 

Just give me one more chance 

You say you feel like you’ve been played 

And I borrowed trouble that I can’t repay 

 

My mind, was playing tricks on me 

I wasn’t thinking straight 

She said, I reminded her of someone 

And I borrowed trouble I can’t repay 

 

You smile, but your eyes are so cold 

They tell me your mind is made 

One night, with her was a mistake 

And I borrowed trouble I can’t repay 

 

You’re leaving, but I can’t let you go. 

Just give me one more chance 

You say you feel like you’ve been played 

And I borrowed trouble I can’t repay

High Roller (Money To Burn)

 Music & Lyrics by Philip Hall, Larry Alder & Randall Rittenberry

 

I got twenty five large, stacked up tight 

And I feel like a winner tonight 

I’m on a hot streak, you got to wait your turn 

Cause I’m a high roller, with money to burn

 

The wheel keeps spinning, time to place a bet 

Pick a number, black or red 

Round and round and round, I like to watch it turn 

Hey I’m a high roller, I got money to burn 

 

The bones are tumblin’, it’s up to fate 

Come seven come eleven and don’t be late 

Doubling down, oh, it’s a hard way to learn 

When you’re a high roller, with money to burn 

 

Money, I got money to burn 

Money, I got money to burn 

Money, I got money to burn 

Money, I got money to burn 

I’m a high roller, I got money to burn

Ain't No Good 

Music & Lyrics by Philip Hall, Larry Alder & Randall Rittenberry 

  

I thought I was the one, The one you adored  

Now I find I’m just somebody you knew before  

I spend all my time, Forgetting you  

And I’ve tried everything, But it’s just no use  

  

You ain’t no good for me  

I guess I should have known  

You ain’t no good for me  

But I can’t leave you alone    

  

I tried to move on, With somebody new  

Even when I’m with her I only think of you  

You ruined me, baby, I’m too far gone to help  

There’s nothing left of me, For anybody else  

  

They say a real man, is not supposed to cry  

Well I’m thinking everything they say  

Might be a lie  

  

You ain’t no good for me   

I guess I should have known   

You ain’t no good for me   

But I can’t leave you alone 

Pay Some Dues

Music & Lyrics by Philip Hall, Larry Alder & Randall Rittenberry

 

My Daddy, told me 

Ain’t no big secret to life 

Work hard, shoot straight, 

Make the most of your time 

It won’t be easy, Lord knows it’s true 

To be a real man 

You’re gonna have to pay some dues 

 

My Momma, told me 

It don’t cost a thing to be kind 

And every day 

Do what you know to be right 

Take nothing for granted, 

Give like you got nothing to lose 

To be a good man  

You’re gonna have to pay some dues 

 

My brother, told me 

Don’t let life pass you by 

Free your mind, feed your soul 

And enjoy the ride 

You might get burned a time or two 

To be a real man you’re gonna have to pay some dues 

To be a real man you’re gonna have to pay some dues

I wonder how long I’m gonna have to pay some dues

Get No Sleep

Music & Lyrics by Philip Hall, Larry Alder & Randall Rittenberry

 

Left at midnight, two days ago 

Seems like forever, I been on this road 

Conversation, ain’t no help 

No one to talk to, ‘cept for myself 

Prayed for daylight, got clouds so gray 

In desperation, just to stay awake 

I made a promise I have to keep 

Even if I get no sleep 

 

I keep driftin’, across that line 

Got this feelin’, ain’t got much time 

Premonition, about my fate 

Might be a dream, I just can’t say 

Eyes wide open, keep looking straight 

My destination, I anticipate 

I made a promise I have to keep 

Even if I get no sleep 

 

Eyes wide open, got to keep looking straight 

My destination, I anticipate 

And I made a promise I have to keep 

Even if I get no sleep 

 

Let Me Drive

Music & Lyrics by Philip Hall, Larry Alder & Randall Rittenberry

 

I’ve seen you driving down the avenue 

Got your ragtop down, 

Got your white shades too 

The boys go crazy when you give ‘em that look 

I bet you know every trick in the book 

Move over, Baby let me drive

 

Well, I think I feel a little chemistry 

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, eventually 

I got a match to light your fuse 

Take a ride with me, Baby, what’cha got to lose 

Move over, Baby let me drive 

 

I’m gonna tell you how it’s gonna be 

We gonna drive all night just you and me 

You know you want to, Baby don’t lie 

I’m gonna take you on a wild ride 

Move over, Baby let me drive

 

I’ve seen you driving down the avenue  

Got your ragtop down,  

Got your white shades too  

The boys go crazy when you give ‘em that look  

I bet you know every trick in the book  

Move over, Baby let me drive
