Song lyrics

  • For the time bombs ticking and the heads they hang,
    All the gangs gettin' money and the heads they bang - bang.
    Wild mustangs, the porno flicks,
    All my homies in the county in cell block six.
    The grits when there ain't enough eggs to cook,
    And to D.B. Cooper and the money he took.
    You can look for answers but that ain't fun,
    Now get in the pit and try to love someone.
  • Well I'm packin' up my game and I'mma head out west
    Where real women come equipped with scripts and fake breasts.
    Find a nest in the Hills, chill like Flynt,
    Buy an old drop-top find a spot to pimp.
    And I'mma Kid Rock it up and down ya' block
    With a bottle of scotch and watch lots a crotch.
    Buy a yacht with a flag sayin' "Chillin' the Most",
    Then rock that bitch up and down the coast.
    Give a toast to the sun, drink with the stars,
    Get thrown in the mix and get tossed outta bars.
  • I ain't no G, I'm just a regular failure;
    I ain't straight outta Compton, I'm straight out the trailer.
    Cuss like a sailor, drink like a Mick; my only words of wisdom are just <radio edit>.
    • "Cowboy"
    • Although the lyrics allude to the existence of two versions of the song (one censored and one uncensored), no uncensored version exists.
  • I'm an American Bad Ass, watch me kick,
    You can roll with Rock or you can suck my dick.
    I'm a porno flick, I'm like Amazing Grace,
    I'm gonna fuck some hoes after I rock this place.
    • "American Bad Ass"
  • The black cat is back, in original form,
    The legible, credible, inevitable storm.
    Way past the normal, still misbehaving,
    Finger in the air and the flag still waving.
    Don't come, don't test the boss
    Because I got this sewn like Betsy Ross.
    You can floss and front, you can taunt and tease,
    But you can't fuck wit rhymes like these.
    • "Forever", written by Kid Rock, Matt Shafer, F Beauregard
  • Up and down that lonely road of faith,
    I have been there
    Unprepared for the storms and the tides that rise.
    I've realized one thing, how much I love you,
    And it hurts to see, see you crying.
    I believe we can make it through the winds of change.
  • Living my life in a slow hell,
    Different girl every night at the hotel.
    I ain't seen the sunshine in three damn days.
    Been fueling up on cocaine and whiskey;
    Wish I had a good girl to miss me.
    Lord, I wonder if I'll ever change my ways.
  • I put your picture away;
    Sat down and cried today.
    I can't look at you while I'm lying next to her.
    • "Picture"
  • I called you last night in the hotel;
    Everyone knows, but they won't tell.
    But their half-hearted smiles tell me something just ain't right.
    I've been waiting on you for a long time,
    Fuelin' up on heartaches and cheap wine.
    I ain't heard from you in three damn nights.
    • "Picture"
  • And when the sunshine showed
    Her face I felt like I was ready to die.
    Went lookin' for a place to hide,
    A hole I could crawl inside.
    Long lines,
    Whiskey bottles,
    And the same old song.
    I smell death in the air
    And I know it won't be long.
  • Maybe I have been on the road too long,
    Living my life through these songs.
    I guess loving a music man
    Really wasn't in your plans.
    Does it matter if I'm sorry again?
    And why should I apologize>
    You knew all along this was my life.
    You know my ins and outs,
    All my fears and doubts.
    It's the life I love,
    But it's you I can't live without.
  • Stop pointing fingers and take some blame,
    Pull your future away from the flame.
    Open up your mind and start to live.
    Stop short changing your neighbors,
    Living off hand outs and favors, and maybe
    Give a little bit more than you got to give.
    Simplify, testify, identify, rectify.
  • And we were trying different things,
    We were smoking funny things,
    Making love out by the lake to our favorite song.
    Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow,
    Singing "Sweet Home Alabama" all summer long.
    Singing "Sweet Home Alabama" all summer long.
    • "All Summer Long"
  • And now these days when I drive through a small town,
    I turn my stereo up and roll my windows down.
    ’Cause it reminds me of my first kiss
    And those days that I always miss.
    Tom Petty on the radio,
    Going steady with nowhere to go.
    No money, just time to spend,
    An old Chevy and a couple friends.
    Oh how I wish that I could go back in time
    Just to love you again.
    • "First Kiss", written by Kid Rock and Marlon Young
