Back Road To Vegas Shotgun blast Full moon sky Pine tree cliffs Stars shine high One lane bridge Dirt wheels fly Driving the back road to Vegas Greenstone key Horse drawn cut Hairpin fence Gate locked shut Old track saved Bushman’s hut Driving the back road to Vegas The new highway’s no good The new highway’s no good Strip it down to the wood Down to the wood The new highway’s no good Strip it down Hometown hills Farm dog lake Golf course views Flat foot straight Quick glance left Red lights brake Driving the back road to Vegas

House By The Highway I’ve got a house by the highway I love to hear the sound of those wheels (x2) Rolling late at night don’t you know how good it feels? It ain’t much to look at But I call it home (x2) Pretty much everything in this world that I own It’s got one room out back A porch at the side That’s where I sit and watch those cars passing by I’ve got a house by the highway I love the sound of those wheels Rolling late at night don’t you know how good it feels? The kitchen window rattles The roof leaks when it rains (x2) But some people got nothing I know I can’t complain So the next time you’re driving Be sure to stop in (x2) Be good to see you baby always good to see you again

Hard Work 02:42
Hard Work Hard work Working hard I’m a labouring man I work hard My teeth are loose So are my jeans On this spade My shadow leans I work this road Oh don’t I know Turning signs With a stop and go Dust and rocks Rocks and dust I’m a machine But my wheels won’t rust I’m up at five The break of day Watching cars Drive my way Hard graft Grafting hard That’s my call My calling card I’ve got bills Stacked this high I pay my way That’s no lie Hard work That’s my gig Working hard Watch me dig

Leather Tongue Motel You wake up in a fever your boots still on your feet As naked as a napkin your clothes dropped in a heap With the curtains pulled, there’s no need to think, you can pour yourself a drink Leaning on the mirror above the bathroom sink Line them up Knock them down Play them fast One more leather tongue motel (x3) A waitress on a bender has crashed out in a chair She’s sleeping off the party a blonde mess of hair With her mountain eyes, she reminded you, of a river running true Fresher than a flower shining in the morning dew One more leather tongue motel (x3) The desert sky is raining sand You got one hand on the wheel Listening to highway 61 singing how… How does it feel? The concert is a screamer the crowd yells out for more You give them what they’re wanting a sing-a-long encore With the lights up full, you can see them all, they’re dancing in the hall Walking from the venue you can hear them call Line them up Knock them down Play them fast One more leather tongue motel (x3)
