It's Only Love
(Gibbons, Hill, Beard)
      I'm gonna tell ya what it's all about
      Sweet thang's tryin' to put me out
      She gone and found herself another man
      She tryin' to let me down as fast as she can

      It's only love, it drives me crazy
      It's only love pretty baby
      Baby, what you tryin' to do

      Well after runnin' round a time or two
      I found out only the best will do
      Well it's your own fault for lettin' her go
      So maybe now you'll take it slow

      It's only love, it drives me crazy
      It's only love pretty baby
      Baby, what you tryin' to do

      Well, it's all over now but the cryin'
      I keep on payin' the price for my lyin'
      Don't let it get you down it ain't nothin' new
      You ain't the only one that it's happened to

      It's only love, it drives me crazy
      It's only love pretty baby
      Baby, what you tryin' to do

Arrested For Driving While Blind
(Gibbons, Hill, Beard)
      When you're driving down the highway at night
      And you're feelin' that wild turkey's bite
      Don't give Johnny Walker a ride
      Cause Jack Black is right by your side
      You might get taken to the jailhouse and find
      You've been arrested for driving while blind

      Now just the other night with nothin' to do
      We broke a case of proof 102
      And started itchin' for that wonderful feel
      Of rollin' in an automobile
      You could say we was out of our mind
      And let me tell you we were flyin' while blind

      Then they had us up against the wall
      Hey it's only blood grain alcohol
      And there ain't no cause for alarm
      We ain't out to do nobody no harm
      How could anyone be so unkind
      To arrest a man for drivin' while blind

El Diablo
(Gibbons, Hill, Beard)
      Did you ever hear the story
      That happened not long ago
      'bout the man with a tan
      El diablo de Mexico
      And this man played his hand
      And he lived by the luck of the draw
      Now and then and again
      Found him steppin' outside the law
      Hey! hey!

      And his fortune he had made
      let him live high on the hog
      Til the day of the raid
      When they hunted him like a dog
      He was out on the run
      Knowing he could get by
      Cause the men killed in sin
      were not there to testify
      Hey! hey!

      He was caught, he was bound
      In la casa de Calaboose
      He was tried, he was found
      And readied for the noose
      But the break he would make
      It didn't turn out so well
      And the hombre called Diablo
      Bid his last farewell

      Did our brothers stay
      I say Hey Snappy Kakkie

Enjoy And Get It On
(Gibbons, Hill, Beard)
      Oh I'm makin' my way back home
      Least that's what I told her on the phone
      Been a while since I made her smile
      And I know she gonna dig my style
      Could you enjoy baby
      Really enjoy gettin' it on

      Could I get some pie ala mode
      When I come in off the road
      Do she still have her fightin' gear
      Just one look is gonna make it clear
      If she would enjoy baby
      Really enjoyed gettin' it on

      How does it feel holdin' me again
      She's holdin' on like it gonna never end
      Well I'm home thinkin' I should stay
      While I'm here just let me hear you say
      Say you enjoyed baby
      Really enjoyed gettin' it on

Ten Dollar Man
(Gibbons, Hill, Beard)
      Mr. ten dollar man with that gold in your hand
      Comin' round here after sunlight
      With your peaches and your pream
      And your rollin magazine
      Tellin' me you'll make me feel alright
      You gonna make me feel alright

      Mr. ten dollar man with a girl by the hand
      Will this ten spot take her away?
      With his slaver's finance he winked,
      Said take a chance
      Don't you know it happens every day
      I said it happens every day

      Mr. ten dollar man with that gun in your hand
      Could I get a case of those tonight
      And now you've got the order, it's time
      To slip the border
      Don't you know it happens every day
      I said it happens every day

Pan Am Highway Blues
(Gibbons, Hill, Beard)
      I've gotten good at missin' her
      I practice all the time
      While I drive the Pan Am highway thru
      With that cactus friend of mine
      It's gettin' hard to see the white line rollin' by
      I can't forget her memory deep inside

      I dropped a bundle down in Panama
      But the loss didn't do me no good
      Spendin' cash and talkin' trash
      Don't do it like it should
      I realized I just couldn't buy her smile
      I'll keep tryin' on that Pan Am mile by mile

      If she'd meet me in San Salvador
      I'd buy her a drink or two
      We'd talk about our used to be
      And ride on to Peru
      The time to get it right is here and now
      If she won't I'll move on anyhow

Avalon Hideway
(Gibbons, Hill, Beard)
      Somebody breathin' down my neck
      While I'm tryin' to roll the bones
      I don't care I'll just float a check
      Cause I'm feelin' my gamblin' Jones
      Here come seven, gimme eleven come again
      Love to hideout where I am my own best friend

      There's crazy little Linda Lou
      With the long and lanky legs
      Nobody do it like Linda do
      At these backwoods lone star dregs
      Like I told you, head out FM 92
      Roll in slowly, you'll be safer if you do

      If you don't know what I'm talkin' about
      Let me ease your worried mind
      It's the place to go without a doubt
      But it's a litlle bit hard to find
      Back in the timber, once you're there
      You'll wanna stay
      Get loose and limber anytime night or day
      Just remember, ask for the Avalon hideway

She's A Heartbreaker
(Gibbons, Hill, Beard)
      She used to drive a beat up pickup
      Down around San Antone
      Stealin' the heart of every guy in town
      Includin' the one I own
      But this sweet young thing of seventeen
      Would sting you with the lovesick blues
      Just a blonde haired blue eyed picture of sin
      Lookin' for someone to use

      She's a lover 'n fighter, she's a wild bull rider
      And I'm wonderin' why she left me such a long time ago
      She's a heartbreaker, she's a love taker
      She can break a heart and take all the love she needs

      Well I heard she got down in Beaumont
      And she wound up in El Paso
      She was tuff as a boot and thin as a rail
      And she could step to the cotton eyed Joe
      If you run across this flagrant fuzzy
      Slip in and get her while you can
      Cause before too long she'll be good as gone
      And runnin' with another man

      She's a lover 'n fighter, she's a wild bull rider
      And I'm wonderin' why she left me such a long time ago
      She's a heartbreaker, she's a love taker
      She can break a heart and take all the love she needs
