    New Orleans Ladies (Lousiana's LeRoux)

    New Orleans Ladies
    A sassy style that will drive you crazy
    And they hold you like the light
    Hugs the wick when this candle's burning.
    Them Creole babies
    Thin and brown and downright lazy
    And they roll just like the river
    A little wave will last forever

    Chorus

    All the way
    From Bourbon Street to Esplanade
    They sashay by...
    They sashay by...

    New Orleans Ladies
    A flair for life, love and laugher
    And they hold you like the night
    Holds a chill when this cold wind's blowing
    Them Creole babies
    They strut and sway from dusk till dawning
    And they roll just like the river
    A little wave will last forever

    Chorus

    All the way
    From Bourbon Street to Esplanade
    They sashay by...
    They sashay by....

    The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down (Dobie Gray)

    Virgil Caine is the name, and I served on the Danville train
    'Till Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again
    In the winter of '65, we were hungry, just barely alive
    By May the tenth, Richmond had fell, it's a time I remember, oh so well

    The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing
    The night they drove old Dixie down, and the people were singin' they went
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

    Back with my wife in Tennessee, when one day she called to me
    "Virgil, quick, come see, there goes Robert E Lee"
    Now I don't mind choppin' wood, and I don't care if the money's no good
    Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest,
    But they should never have taken the very best

    The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing
    The night they drove old Dixie down, and the people were singin' they went
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,

    Like my father before me, I will work the land
    Like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand
    He was just eighteen, proud and brave, but a Yankee laid him in his grave
    I swear by the mud below my feet,
    You can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat

    The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringing,
    The night they drove old Dixie down, and all the people were singin', they went
    Na, la, na, la, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,

    The night they drove old Dixie down, and all the bells were ringing,
    The night they drove old Dixie down, and the people were singin', they went
    Na, la, na, la, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

    Funky Junky (The CDB)

    You can mess around if you want to
    But there’s some thing a man don’t wanna do
    And if you see him comin’ walkin’ down the street
    You better jump back outta his way
    Everyone knows the streets get empty
    Every time he comes to town
    'Cause he’s got somethin’ in his left hip pocket
    Make a bulldog hug a hound

    Funky junky
    Funky junky

    Lives on Misery Boulevard
    About a half o’ mile south of the graveyard
    In a rundown leaky roof, funky old dirty floor
    One room pine log shack
    Lives on muskrat barbeque
    And he slieeps on a railroad track
    He gotta tiger in his living room
    He gotta monkey on his back

    Funky junky
    Funky junky

    Amazing Grace (The CDB)

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now I am found
    Was blind but now, I seeAmazing Grace, how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now I am found
    Was blind but now, I see

    T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear
    And Grace, my fears relieved
    And how precious did that Grace appear
    At the hour when I first believed

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now I have found
    Was blind but now, now I see

    When we've been here ten, ten thousand years
    Bright shining, bright shining as the sun
    We've no less days to sing our God's praise
    Then when we've first begun

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now I am found
    Was blind but now, I see

    I was blind but now, I see

    Will the Circle Be Unbroken (Bobby Jones & New Life)

    I was standing by the window
    On one cold and cloudy day
    When I saw the hearse come rolling
    For to carry my mother away

    Will the circle be unbroken
    Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
    There's a better home awaiting
    In the sky Lord, in the sky

    I said to the undertaker
    Undertaker please drive slow
    For this lady you are carrying
    Lord I hate to see her go

    Will the circle be unbroken
    Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
    There's a better home awaiting
    In the sky Lord, in the sky

    Oh, I followed close behind her
    Tried to hold up and be brave
    But I could not hide my sorrow
    When they laid her in the grave

    Will the circle be unbroken
    Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
    There's a better home awaiting
    In the sky Lord, in the sky

    I went back home, the home was lonesome
    Since my mother, she was gone
    All my brothers and sisters crying
    What a home so sad and alone

    Will the circle be unbroken
    Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
    There's a better home awaiting
    In the sky Lord, in the sky

    We sang songs of childhood
    Hymns of faith that made us strong
    Ones that mother Maybelle taught us
    Hear the angels sing along

    Will the circle be unbroken
    Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
    There's a better home awaiting
    In the sky Lord, in the sky

    Keep On Smilin' (Wet Willie)

    Well you say you got the blues,
    You got holes in both of your shoes, yeah-
    You're feeling alone and confused,
    You got to keep on smilin', just keep on smilin'

    Yeah, you're- you're bout to go insane,
    Cause your womans playing games,
    And she says that you're to blame,
    You try to keep on smilin', just keep on smilin'

    Keep on smilin' through the rain, laughin' at the pain
    Just flowin' with the changes, till the sun comes out again
    Keep on smilin' through the rain, laughin at the pain
    Just flowin' with the changes, and singin' this refrain

    Singing in a honky tonk cafe,
    Nobodys hearin' what you play, yeah-
    They're too busy drinkin anyway,
    You gotta keep on smilin', brother keep on smilin'

    Say you found a piece of land
    Gonna change from city boy to country man, yeah-
    Try to build you're life with your hands
    And just keep on smilin', keep on smilin'

    Keep on smilin' through the rain, laughin' at the pain
    Just flowin' with the changes, till the sun comes out again
    Keep on smilin' through the rain, laughin at the pain
    Just flowin' with the changes, and singin' this refrain

    You're just hangin out- in a local bar,
    And you're wonderin'- who the hell you are
    Are you a farmer - are you a star?

    Smile on through the rain
    Laugh all through the pain
    Flow through to changes
    Till the sun comes out again

    Keep on smilin', smilin' - smilin', smilin'
    Laughin, laughin- said laughin', laughin'
    Keep on flowin', flowin', flowin' -- yeah................

    So Long (Henry Paul Band)

    Storm is overcome with rage

    I slowly turn another page

    Deeper into love I seem to go

    Stories filled with scattered lies

    Broken hearts and paradise

    For the ending no one seems to know

     

    Chorus:

    ​That it's been so long since I've held you close enough to me

    That I feel I've finally come to lose my heart

    And the nights are so long without you that I find it hard to see

    Through the tears we've cried long enough to find us here apart

     

    Then that darkened sky reveals

    The way the sunlight really feels

    Burning through the longest afternoon

    Slowly passing, time demands

    All it seems that I can stand

    Silver wings can't get me there too soon

     

    Cause it's been.. [Repeat Chorus]

     

    You see it's been. [Repeat Chorus]

    Down Home Blues (Papa John Creach)

    You said your party's jumping
    And everybody's having a good time 

    You say your party's jumping 
    and everybody's having a good time 
    you know what's going through my mind
    do you mind if I get comfortable and kick off these shoes
    While you fixing me a drink play me some of those down-home
    She said you know I don't get out much on the town 
    and you know I than cut out a lot of that running around 
    All night long, I been keeping my cool
    She said take off those fast records and play me some of those down-home blue

    Down-home Blues, Down home blues 
    All I wanted to hear was some down home blues, 
    all night long every other record or two 
    She said, I'm going to get my head banged
    And party on the down home blues

    She said you know my old man's Gonna want to fight because of the hours I'll be early in tonight
    but I don't care Because tonight I'm gonna do as I choose You see i'm going To get my head banged and party on these down-home blues

    Down-home Blues, Down home blues 
    All I wanted to hear was some down home blues, 
    all night long every other record or two 
    She said, I'm going to get my head banged
    And party on the down home blues

    Carol (Ted Nugent & The CDB)

    Oh Carol, don't let him steal your heart away
    I'm gonna learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

    Climb into my machine so we can cruise on out
    I know a swingin' little joint where we can jump and shout
    It's not too far back off the highway, not so long a ride
    You park your car out in the open, you can walk inside
    A little cutie takes your hat and you can thank her, ma'am
    Every time you make the scene you find the joint is jammed

    Oh Carol, don't let him steal your heart away
    I'm gonna learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

    And if you want to hear some music like the boys are playin'
    Hold tight, pat your foot, don't let 'em carry it away
    Don't let the heat overcome you when they play so loud
    Oh, don't the music intrigue you when they get a crowd
    You can't dance, I know you wish you could
    I got my eyes on you baby, 'cause you dance so good

    Oh Carol, don't let him steal your heart away
    I'm gonna learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

    Don't let him steal your heart away
    I've got to learn to dance if it takes you all night and day
    Oh Carol

    Do the Funky Chicken (Rufus Thomas)

    Y'all come on in now
    Come right on down front
    I got something I want to show you
    Now y'all heard of the Popcorn
    Y'all heard of the Dog
    You heard about all your other dances
    But now there's a brand new dance
    That's going around
    I want to show you exactly what I'm talking about
    I'm talking about the funky chicken, y'all ready?

    You raise the left arm up
    And your right arm too
    Let me tell you just what to do
    Start both of 'em to flapping
    You start your feet to kicking
    That's when you know
    You doin' the funky chicken

    You put both arms up across your face
    You knees start wiggling all over the place
    You flap your arms
    And your feet start kicking
    Then you know you doin' the funky chicken

    Oh, I'm feeling it now
    I feel so unnecessary
    This is the kind
    This is the kind of stuff
    To make you feel like you
    Want to do something nasty
    Like waste some chicken gravy
    On your white shirt
    Right down front here we go y'all

    You work both arms and you work both feet
    Use a dab of gravy, you right on the beat
    You flap your arms
    And your feet start kicking
    The you know you doin' the funky chicken
