Gonna ride out of town Shake the troubles from your hair And don’t bother me I only want to take you there Say it’s a lonely bar But you don’t even understand I know you’ve known me before But I don’t need another hand I don’t even care at all about you now about you now I don’t even care at all You never traveled before But as long as i keep the door Don’t pay at the bar I can always find the car We’re gonna open the sky Count the stars and travel high Paint our necks red And find the way to Danville tonight I don’t even care at all about you now about you now I don’t even care at all
Crazy Girl 03:30
say what you want you're gonna be fine anyway come on back down and stay if you want to go there's the door don't let it hit you on your way girl, I know that you're crazy "it doesn't matter to me," you say "I'll be alright anyway" "and they all know what you did to me anyway" yeah yeah take all the drugs that you want now won't fix anything go on try someone today come on back down you lie anyway go on and get all the crowd you need "it doesn't matter to me" you'll say and you'll be right anyway and I'll try but I know there's not any way gone and messed up but I know who you are when you're gone you're a cold drunk and I know that it's not anything for me it's not anything not anything for me
Rantoul 03:16
Go away with me tonight In the back of my van Gonna drive to Rantoul Just to see if we can Just go Girl you wanna think twice about last night And so You say its on your mind but you need to say you're right Go away with me tonight In the back of my ride Gonna drive to Rantoul Just to go and get high Just go You really wanna rethink about your hair And no You oughta think about the way you stare when I say so Go away with me tonight In the back of my van Gonna drive to Rantoul Just to see if we can
A woman sings of expensive things and that’s not all A lover cries and her woman’s eyes says Everything’s on And if you want some kind of recourse That’s all right Your lover’s arms aren’t tainted now To hold you tight If you want some kind of love, well That’s all right If you want some kind of love, well Just stay the night Stay the night Come on back tonight It’ll last tonight Your lover’s arms won’t be long But that don’t make it right You want to say it’s expensive sex But let’s stay the night Your lover’s arms don’t mean no harm But you know it ain’t right, yeah
I don’t care what you say tonight Doesn’t matter to me at all Give up the fight I know what you want to do with your night yeah Come back alone You want it bad but you just don’t play along You know you’re wrong And I’ll join you in the dark of the dawn Good luck tonight It doesn’t matter who’s wrong and who’s right I know, "Who’s right?" You could say it once but I know I was right tonight
