TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Bossier City

Lyrics from Musicaward TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Bossier City Lyrics, singer by TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

Well Robbie’s got a brand new girlfriend
She’s got a script for pills
These here man they’re the good ones
Counting those ten dollar bills

What Mama don’t know won’t hurt her
That’s what he’d always say
He’s going down to Bossier City
He’s gonna drink his cares away

Robbie’s got a thousand dollars
That’s more than the saw mills paying
Lucy she’s at her mamas
But he’ll lose it all today

He’s got a thousand dollars
That’s just some gasoline
You know that boy well he can gamble
Like you ain’t never seen

What Mama don’t know won’t hurt her
That’s what he’d always say
He’s going down to Bossier City
He’s gonna drink his cares away

He’s pulling down on that lever
Like he’s got cash to burn
Barely too proud to beg
I guess that boy will never learn

He’s driving back home on Sunday
Praying he don’t get killed
You know that Lucy’s kinda crazy
When she ain’t got her pills

What Mama don’t know won’t hurt her
That’s what he’d always say
He’s going down to Bossier City
He’s gonna drink his cares away

What Mama don’t know won’t hurt her
That’s what he’d always say
He’s going down to Bossier City
He’s gonna drink his cares away

What Mama don’t know won’t hurt her
That’s what he’d always say
He’s going down to Bossier City
He’s gonna drink his cares away

TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Fall Out Of Love

Lyrics from Musicaward TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Fall Out Of Love Lyrics, singer by TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

How do you fall out of love
Well how could you lose such a thing
You try and hang on to what’s already gone
Now how does a person just change
Well how do you fall out of love

Why did it wind up so bad
Were the good times all that we had
We laughed and we loved but when push came to shove
Why did it end up so sad
How did we fall out of love

Well you bet your heart on a diamond
And I played the clubs in spades
We gambled and lost, guess we both paid the cost
Look what a mess I have made
Well how did we fall out of love

Now how do you know when it’s over
Well how do you know when to run
For cryin’ out loud, I was bound to walk out
How do you know when it’s done

And how do you fall out of love
Well how could you lose such a thing
You try and hang on to what’s already gone
But how does a person just change
Well how do you fall out of love

TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Doreen

Lyrics from Musicaward TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Doreen Lyrics, singer by TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

When I first met Doreen
She was barely seventeen
She was drinking whiskey sours in the bar

And the way she tossed ’em back
I would’ve had a heart attack
Oh but as it is I let her drive my car

We galloped through the boroughs
Like a pair of horny thoroughbreds
Until I said, Stop the car, Doreen

Well, you can roll your eyes and nod
But I swear that I saw God in the moonlight
On a side street in the wreckage we call Queens

Doreen, Doreen
Last night I had an awful dream
You were laying in the arms of a man I’d never seen
Come clean, Doreen
Come clean, Doreen

Well, I’m pulling into Cleveland
In a seven-seater tour van
There’s eight of us, so I’m sleeping on the floor

And the guy who plays the banjo
Keeps on handing me the old crow
Which multiplies my sorrow, I can’t take it anymore

Doreen, Doreen
Last night I had an awful dream
You were laying in the arms of a man I’d never seen
Come clean, Doreen
Come clean, Doreen

Now I’m begging and I’m pleading
Please pull over guys, I’m bleeding
There’s a Fina off the highway with a phone

And I’m calling you, Doreen
But the phone, it rings and rings
Where is it that you are, if you aren’t in our bed at home

Doreen, Doreen
Last night I had an awful dream
You were laying in the arms of a man I’d never seen
Come clean, Doreen
Come clean, Doreen

Doreen
Last night I had an awful dream
You were laying in the arms of a man I’d never seen
Come clean, Doreen
Come clean, Doreen
I’m coming clean, Doreen
I’m coming clean, Doreen
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS 7 Oaks

Lyrics from Musicaward TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS 7 Oaks Lyrics, singer by TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

Well that banker
He keeps calling
Telling us our mortgage is overdue
Gonna plow up the fields
Gonna burn down the house
And the banker he can have it when I’m through

There ain’t no silver left in these pockets
There ain’t no cornbread, Lord there ain’t no wine
That train don’t stop around here anymore
It done moved on down the line

Well the tax man
He said old Uncle Sam
Gotta get his share of the rake
He can come around here
He can look for himself
There ain’t nothing left he can take

There ain’t no silver left in these pockets
There ain’t no cornbread, Lord there ain’t no wine
That train don’t stop around here anymore
It done moved on down the line

I’m gonna go back to Grandaddy’s farm
On Cherokee allotted land
It ain’t ever been owned by no one but him
Won’t be taxed by no other man

There ain’t no silver left in these pockets
And here ain’t no cornbread and there ain’t no wine
That train don’t stop around here anymore
It done moved on down the line
I said that train don’t stop around here anymore
It done moved on down the line

TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Easton And Main

Lyrics from Musicaward TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Easton And Main Lyrics, singer by TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

Well I left my heart in Tulsa
On the corner of Easton and Main
On the Cain’s Ballroom floor
Soaking up a bourbon stain
Now I’m going back to see her
Just as soon as I can
And I left my heart in Tulsa
On the corner of Easton and Main

Well we drove up to the city
On an autumn Saturday night
Ah and damn that girl looks pretty
In the artificial moon light
And I swore she looked right at me
Like we were meant to be
What’s a girl like that gonna wanna have to do
With a country boy like me

Well I left my heart in Tulsa
On the corner of Easton and Main
On the Cain’s Ballroom floor
Soaking up cheap champagne
And I’m going back to see her
Just as soon as I can
And I left my heart in Tulsa
On the corner of Easton and Main

Now I’m back down on a farm
Dreaming ’bout those big city lights
Wakin’ up at dawn
Workin’ ’till it’s night
But I’m savin’ up my money
And this time I’ll make her see
What a girl like that just might want
With a country boy like me

Well I left my heart in Tulsa
On the corner of Easton and Main
On the Cain’s Ballroom floor
Soaking up a bourbon stain
Well I’m going back to see her
Just as soon as I can
Now I left my heart in Tulsa
On the corner of Easton and Main

TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Long Drive Home

Lyrics from Musicaward TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS Long Drive Home Lyrics, singer by TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

I guess what I’ll miss, the most will be the mornings
The squeak of a hardwood floor as you start out your day
And I’ve loved you darling from across your kitchen table
And I’ve loved you darling from a thousand miles away

Oh and I’m still standing here and I’ve got reasonable fears
All the houses I’ve built came crashing down around my ears

And we got a long drive home
We got a long drive home
We got a long drive home
And I’m damned if I do
And I’m damned if you don’t

If home is what you’re lookin for, won’t you find another business?
If lovin’ songs ain’t in your cards, won’t you find another game?
Well I’m still here searchin’ for the things that I’ve been missin’
Livin’ with these lowdown fools and all our stupid shame

Oh and I still dwell and set on all the things that I regret
You still can’t forgive the times that I wish I could forget

We got a long drive home
We got a long drive home
We got a long drive home
And I’m damned if I do
And I’m damned if you don’t

Well people anymore, they got no stayin’ power
I love you come by easy, it’ll leave you just the same
You want somethin bad, you gotta bleed a little for it
You gotta look it in the eye, you gotta call it out by name

Oh and lovers they march by, but they ain’t like you and I
They all wanna be Hank Williams, they don’t wanna have to die

And we got a long drive home
We got a long drive home
We got a long drive home
And I’m damned if I do
And I’m damned if you don’t

TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS A Little Song

Lyrics from Musicaward TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS A Little Song Lyrics, singer by TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

Well I’ve got a little tune that I could hum to turn back time
Back to all our better days and nights
Well now what a fool to figure that forever you’d be mine
Well I wrote a little rhyme to make it right

And I found a pretty way to say
That I can’t throw it all away
A little song to make you stay

Well I’ve been looking backward now until I’ve damn near gone blind
Searching for a pretty sight to see
Finding out the only thing I’m needing now to find
Is finally standing right in front of me

And I think I stole a melody
To stop you now from leaving me
A little song to make you see

Well you could kill the engine and just cool it for awhile
And I could do my best just to keep it light
And maybe for a moment you’ll remember how to smile
Maybe we’re fogetting how to fight

Well you don’t want me anymore
Just wait until I count to four
And you’re tapping on the hardwood floor
And I’ll sing it for you til I’m blue
For any good that it could do
A little song to pull us through

Well I’ve got a little tune that I could hum to turn back time
Back to all our better days and nights
Well what fool to figure that forever you’d be mine
Well I wrote a little rhyme to make it right
