    • Lyrics

      Davin James, Davin James Music/BMI

      If you go hungry around here son
      It’s your own damn fault
      There’s enough food around here
      To feed an army
      Yes sir no sir use your manners
      That’s the way you was taught
      We got some company comin over
      Gonna have a party

      Chorus:
      We’re gonna have a get together
      We got some good guitar weather
      Blue sky fish fry oh my son
      Ringer leaner horseshoe fun
      Cut a watermelon a little taste of heaven
      Son there ain’t no telling
      Who might come along
      Swingin on a tire
      Oh daddy push me higher
      Tonight we’ll build a fire
      And sing a sing a long
      Ain’t nothing beats a good ol campfire song

      Now when the company gets here
      Be on your best behavior
      Yall don’t make me have to get on to you
      Lets count our blessings
      The good Lord is our savior
      Lets say a prayer for those who’s
      Not as fortunate

      Chorus

  • Palmer Lake

    • Lyrics

      Davin James, Davin James Music/BMI

      If we were down on Palmer Lake
      That would be so fine
      The weather’s been so great
      I’d like to wet a line

      Chorus:
      Baby let’s go
      That’s what we’ve been needing
      Baby let’s go
      R and r is roddin and reeling
      We can cast away our cares
      And catch a sunset or two
      On the old oxbow
      Baby let’s go

      Let’s get out of this place
      Let’s just make the time
      Maybe grill a couple steaks
      Maybe have a glass on wine

      Chorus

      Let’s go and have ourselves a holiday
      We’ll use a little vacation and a couple sick days
      Let’s leave all the cell phones behind
      It’s gonna be fine
      It’s gonna be fine

      Chorus

      If we were down on Palmer Lake
      That would be so fine

  • Something To Fall Back On

    • Lyrics

      Davin James, Davin James Music/BMI
      Cletus, Shawn Parks

      If I heard it once I heard it a thousand times
      You better stay in school
      Try to do something with your mind
      But I ain’t no good at taking advice
      I ain’t never had good sense
      The grass is always greener on the
      Other side of the fence

      So I took my six string and I headed on down the line
      I said adios hometown
      Kiss myself goodbye
      Mamma had a big ol tear in her eye
      Daddy slipped a hundred dollar bill
      On the sly
      He said call us collect
      If you need to you can always come home

      Chorus:
      Cause you gotta have something to fall back on
      You gotta have a little something tucked away
      You better have something saved for a rainy day
      Do a little planning ahead
      And when you lay down at night
      It’ll make you feel better
      Than anything you’ve ever known
      If you have something to fall back on

      Here it is twenty years later
      And everything is fine
      But I ain’t gonna say that
      I hadn’t had a few hard times

      If you learn to believe and you learn how to pray
      The good Lord will help you every step of the way
      He’s always there with you
      Even when you think you’re alone
      Chorus

      Chorus

  • Makes My Living

    • Lyrics

      Davin James, Davin James Music/BMI

      Lord I makes my living on the side of the road
      Yes I makes my living Lord on the side of this road
      Lordy I can go to work most anywhere I go

      If you likes what you hear won’t you hit my tip jar please
      If you likes what you hear won’t you hit my tip jar please
      In spite of what some think this music here ain’t free
      Somebody got to pay the guitar man

      Put a smile on your face put a happy in your hand
      Put a smile on your face put a happy in your hand
      Put some love in your heart and put some money in the can

      Lord I makes my living on the side of the road
      Yes I makes my living Lord on the side of this road
      Hey I can go to work most anywhere I go

  • Ain't No Soul On The Radio

    • Lyrics

      Davin James, Davin James Music/BMI

      I’ve always loved music
      Music always has moved me
      My favorite way to communicate
      Is to have a little pickin and sing

      Chorus:
      But there ain’t no soul
      On the radio
      I can’t get my groove on
      I can’t tap my toes
      So get down the fiddle
      And rosen up that bow
      Cause there ain’t no soul
      On the radio

      You gotta get it in the thrift store
      Get it in the pawnshop
      Get it anywhere you can
      Get out all them old records son
      And soak it up second hand

      Cause there ain’t no soul
      Chorus

      Chorus

  • When A Song Was Still A Song

    • Lyrics

      Davin James, Davin James Music/BMI

      I can remember countin the stars
      Riding down the road in the back of the car
      Making a pallet on the back dash
      And listening to music smash after smash

      Chorus:
      And that’s when a song was still a song
      Back when everybody could sing a long
      When sweet melodies still made you feel fine
      And reason and rhyme alone
      Back when a song was still a song

      I still remember my first ride
      A ’73 blazer with a four-wheel drive
      Pioneer speakers and a box on the hood
      And blaring that music never sounded so good

      Chorus

      And reason and rhyme alone
      Back when a song was still a song

  • Sweet Tooth

    • Lyrics

      Davin James, Davin James Music/BMI

      Well I’m hungry for you
      And I’m overdue
      Aint had my sweet thing
      In such a long long time

      What I’m trying to say
      Is that I need a little taste
      Common baby pretty please
      with a cherry on top
      I ain’t gonna ruin my supper
      Or spoil my appetite

      Chorus:
      I gotta sweet tooth
      For you baby
      If I don’t get no sugar Lord
      I don’t know what I’m gonna do
      Honey baby, sugar cane
      If I don’t get me some lovin
      I’m gonna come untamed
      I’ll be a wild man on the loose
      With my sweet tooth

      I ain’t gonna ruin my supper
      Spoil my appetite

      Chorus

  • Felt A Delta

    • Lyrics

      Davin James, Davin James Music, BMI

      Bacon fryin
      I ain’t lyin
      Biscuit risin
      And the coffee’s on
      Over-easy I do believe this day is mine

      Well have you felt a delta morning
      Sun up on the river
      Looks like a picture
      Cold snap shiver
      Back up to the fire
      Warm and toasty
      A little bit smokey
      But it smells so fine

      Well have you felt a delta morning
      Rise and shine
      Oh every day’s a holiday
      Peace of mind
      Oh everything is going my way
      Everything is going my way

      Well have you felt a delta morning
      Rise and shine
      Oh every day’s a holiday
      Peace of mind
      Oh everything is going my way
      Everything is going my way

  • Taking It Slow

    • Lyrics

      Davin James, Davin James Music/BMI

      Taking it slow
      Taking it slow
      I ain’t got no singing show
      I ain’t got no spending dough
      So I think that I’ll lay out
      On this ol river bank
      Hey baby what you think
      Ain’t much to think about no
      Don’t you know that I am
      Don’t you know I’m just taking it slow

      Well I’m laying low
      Yes I’m laying low
      I ain’t got no where to go
      I ain’t got no money to blow
      So I think I’ll just sip on this here lemonade
      Baby what you say
      Ain’t much to think about no no
      Don’t you know that I am
      Don’t you know I’m just laying low

      Some folks have even called me lazy
      But who the hell wants to work anyway
      Layin around with you sounds so tasty
      I think I’ll hang around and have me a taste

      I’m laying low
      I’m laying so low
      I ain’t got no spending dough
      I need to find me a singing show
      But I think I will lay out on this ol riverbank
      And drink me some lemonade
      Baby what you think about no no
      Don’t you know that I am
      Don’t you know that I’m just layin low

  • Honeysuckle Madness

    • Lyrics

      Hank Riddle, Lavaca Music, ASCAP

      There’s something in the wind tonight
      Old timers say it’s honeysuckle madness you fight
      When your head gets dizzy and your heart feels light
      Well it’s honeysuckle madness all right

      It can happen anytime of the year
      Especially in the spring when the blossoms appear
      You got one thing on your mind
      Morning noon and night
      Well it’s honeysuckle madness all right

      Chorus:
      When you start to think life is passing you by
      Every woman you see has a wink in her eye
      You wake up weak in the middle of the night
      Well it’s honeysuckle madness all right

      It’s so widespread there’s not too much you can do
      But honeysuckle madness is good for you
      Just watch those hummingbirds as they suspend in flight
      Well that’s honeysuckle madness all right

      Chorus

      There’s something in the wind tonight
      It’s honeysuckle madness you fight
