    There's a big black Cadillac parked on the street over there

    Well it's the finest lookin' car, that ever rolled of the line
    Any other car would just be wasting your time
    Ooh one fine day I'm gonna make a Cadillac mine

    I gotta get a Cadillac
    Look at that Cadillac, look at that
    Look at that Cadillac, look at that
    Rolling down the avenue, I'm gonna get me a Cadillac too
    If it's the last thing I do

    Nibbling on sponge cake
    Watching the sun bake
    All of you Parrotheads covered with oil
    And feathers, and signs, and pins
    Strumming' my six string on my front porch swing
    Smell those shrimp, hey they're beginning to boil
    Bubble, bubble, bubble, bubble
    Wasting away again in Margaritaville
    Searching for my long lost shaker of salt
    Salt, salt, salt
    Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
    And I know this is somebody's fault
    I don't know the reason
    Stayed here all season
    With nothing to show but that brand new tattoo
    Hell yes, it hurts
    But it's a real beauty
    Oh, I think she might be a Nantucket cutie
    Or maybe she's from the Vineyard
    I haven't got a clue

    "I'm going out tonight
    I'm feelin' alright
    Gonna let it all hang out
    Wanna make some noise
    Really raise my voice
    Yeah, I wanna scream and shout
    No inhibitions
    Make no conditions
    Get a little outta line
    I ain't gonna act politically correct
    I only wanna have a good time

    The best thing about being a woman
    Is the prerogative to have a little fun and...

    Oh-oh-oh, go totally crazy
    Forget I'm a lady
    Men's shirts, short skirts
    Oh-oh-oh, really go wild
    Yeah, doin' it in style
    Oh-oh-oh, get in the action
    Feel the attraction
    Color my hair, do what I dare
    Oh-oh-oh, I wanna be free
    Yeah, to feel the way I feel
    Man! I feel like a woman!"

    I call you, when I need you my heart's on fire
    You come to me, come to me, wild and wild
    You come to me
    Give me everything I need
    Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams
    Speak the language of love like you know what it means
    And it can't be wrong, take my heart
    And make it strong, baby
    You're simply the best
    Better than all the rest
    Better than anyone
    Anyone I ever met
    I'm stuck on your heart
    I hang on every word you say
    Tear us apart
    Baby, I would rather be dead
    In your heart I see the start of every night and every day
    In your eyes, I get lost, I get washed away
    Just as long as I'm here in your arms
    I could be in no better place

    There was a wild colonial boy, Jack Doolan was his name
    Of poor but honest parents, he was born near Castlemaine
    He was his father's only son, and his mother's pride and joy
    So dearly did his parents love their wild colonial boy

    Barely sixteen years of age, he first began to roam
    And found Australia's sunny shores, and called it his true home
    He robbed the wealthy squatters, their assets to destroy
    A terror to the rich ones, was the wild colonial boy

    Back in eighteen sixty one, began his wild career
    With a head that knew no danger, and a heart that held no fear
    He held the Mudgee mail coach up, and he shot Judge MacEvoy
    A curse to every copper was the wild colonial boy

    "Back through the years I go wanderin' once again
    Back to the seasons of my youth
    I recall a box of rags that someone gave us
    And how my momma put the rags to use

    There were rags of many colors
    But every piece was small
    And I didn't have a coat
    And it was way down in the fall

    Momma sewed the rags together
    Sewin' every piece with love
    She made my coat of many colors
    That I was so proud of

    As she sewed, she told a story
    From The Bible, she had read
    About a coat of many colors
    Joseph wore and then she said

    "Perhaps this coat will bring you
    Good luck and happiness"
    And I just couldn't wait to wear it
    And momma blessed it with a kiss

    My coat of many colors
    That my momma made for me
    Made only from rags
    But I wore it so proudly

    Although we had no money
    Oh, I was rich as I could be
    In my coat of many colors
    My momma made for me

    So with patches on my britches
    And holes in both my shoes
    In my coat of many colors
    I hurried off to school

    Just to find the others laughing
    And making fun of me
    And my coat of many colors
    My momma made for me

    And oh I couldn't understand it
    For I felt I was rich
    And I told them of the love
    My momma sewed in every stitch

    And I told 'em all the story
    Momma told me while she sewed
    And how my coat of many colors
    Was worth more than all their clothes

    But they didn't understand it
    And I tried to make them see
    That one is only poor
    Only if they choose to be

    Now I know we had no money
    But I was rich as I could be
    In my coat of many colors
    My momma made for me
    Made just for me"

    On a rattlesnake speedway in the Utah desert
    I pick up my money and head back into town
    Driving 'cross the Waynesboro county line
    I got the radio on and I'm just killing time
    Working all day in my daddy's garage
    Driving all night chasing some mirage
    Pretty soon little girl I'm gonna take charge

    The dogs on Main Street howl
    'Cause they understand
    If I could take one moment into my hands
    Mister I ain't a boy, no, I'm a man
    And I believe in a promised land

    "I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden
    Along with the sunshine there's gotta be a little rain sometime
    When you take, you gotta give, so live and let live and let go, oh, oh, oh, oh
    I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden

    I could promise you things like big diamond rings
    But you don't find roses growin' on stalks of clover
    So you better think it over
    Well, if sweet talking you could make it come true
    I would give you the world right now on a silver platter
    But what would it matter?
    So smile for a while and let's be jolly; love shouldn't be so melancholy
    Come along and share the good times while we can

    I beg your pardon I never promised you a rose garden
    Along with the sunshine there's gotta be a little rain sometime
    I beg your pardon I never promised you a rose garden"

    There used to be a graying tower alone on the sea
    You became the light on the dark side of me
    Love remained a drug that's the high and not the pill
    But did you know that when it snows
    My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen?
    Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray
    Ooh, the more I get of you, the stranger it feels, yeah
    And now that your rose is in bloom
    A light hits the gloom on the gray
    There is so much a man can tell you, so much he can say
    You remain my power, my pleasure, my pain, baby
    To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny
    Won't you tell me, is that healthy, baby?
    But did you know that when it snows
    My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen?

    One pill makes you larger
    And one pill makes you small
    And the ones that mother gives you
    Don't do anything at all

    Go ask Alice
    When she's ten feet tall
    And if you go chasing rabbits
    And you know you're going to fall

    Tell them a hookah-smoking caterpillar
    Has given you the call
    Call Alice when she was just small
    When the men on the chess board
    Get up and tell you where to go

    And you just had some kind of mushroom
    And your mind is moving slow
    Go ask Alice
    I think she'll know

    Bangkok, Oriental Setting
    But the city don't know what the city is getting
    The crème de la crème of the chess world
    In a show with everything but Yul Brynner

    Time flies – doesn't seem a minute
    Since the Tyrolean spa had the chess boards in it
    All changed, don't you know that when you
    Play at this level there's no ordinary venue

    It's Iceland, or the Philippines, or Hastings
    Or
    Or this place!

    Company
    One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
    The bars are temples but their pearls ain't free
    You'll find a god in every golden cloister
    And if you're lucky, then the god's a she
    I can feel an angel slidin' up to me

    What can it be, about this city at night
    Walking around, the women don't put up a fight
    Taking your time, loving all that you see
    But there's something I know, I've got somewhere else I must be

    We're leaving Bangkok by Night
    I don't want to be
    Leaving Bangkok by Night
    From the lights and the city, they make you feel like its party-time
    You'll get caught with the motion, so go with it boy till its time
    To leave Bangkok by Night

    If you go for a cruise, you might be surprised what you find
    Its their way of life, but it damn near blew my mind
    Its not quite the same, as places I've been
    Cause those Thai Girls can do a show, like you've never seen

    "Somewhere out there
    Beneath the pale moonlight
    Someone's thinking of me
    And loving me tonight

    Somewhere out there
    Someone's saying a prayer
    That we'll find one another
    In that big somewhere out there

    And even though I know how very far apart we are
    It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star
    And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
    It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

    Somewhere out there
    If love can see us through
    Then we'll be together
    Somewhere out there
    Out where dreams come true"

    'Somewhere Out There' - Linda Ronstadt & James Ingram
    (from the soundtrack for the movie An American Tail)

    That we'll find one another
    In that big somewhere out there

    And even though I know how very far apart we are
    It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star
    And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
    It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

    Somewhere out there
    If love can see us through
    Then we'll be together
    Somewhere out there
    Out where dreams come true"

    'Somewhere Out There' - Linda Ronstadt & James Ingram
    (from the soundtrack for the movie An American Tail)  

    Go to sleep you weary hobo
    Let the towns drift slowly by
    Listen to the steel rails hummin'
    That's the hobo's lullaby

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    Do not think 'bout tomorrow
    Let tomorrow come and go
    Tonight you're in a nice warm boxcar
    Safe from all that wind and snow

    I know the police cause you trouble
    They cause trouble everywhere
    But when you die and go to Heaven
    You'll find no policemen there

    So go to sleep you weary hobo
    Let the towns drift slowly by
    Listen to the steel rails hummin'
    That's a hobo's lullaby

    'Hobo's Lullaby' - Woody Guthrie

    The song came and went
    Like the times that we spent
    Hiding out from the rain under the carnival tent
    I laughed and she'd smile
    It would last for awhile
    You don't know what you got till you lose it all again

    Listen to the mandolin rain
    Listen to the music on the lake
    Listen to my heart break every time she runs away
    Listen to the banjo wind
    A sad song drifting low
    Listen to the tears roll
    Down my face as she turns to go

    A cool evening dance
    Listening to the bluegrass band takes the chill
    From the air till they play the last song
    I'll do my time
    Keeping you off my mind but there's moments
    That I find, I'm not feeling so strong

    'Mandolin Rain' - Ricky Skaggs
