The road lyrics - Aaron Lewis

Aaron Lewis - The road Lyrics
Aaron Lewis, born April 13, 1972 in Rutland, Vermont, USA, is the lead vocalist of the hard rock/post-grunge group Staind . According to the Country Boy Songfacts, growing up in rural Vermont, Lewis spent summers with his World War II veteran grandfather hunting and fishing. “Country was the background music to my childhood,” said the singer. “My grandfather listened to Merle Haggard , Hank Williams, Hank Williams Jr. and all of the greats. When Staind did our first tour with Kid Rock in 1999, I rode the bus with him on a couple occasions, and we bonded over this music. I haven’t been able to let go of it since then.” Aaron Lewis was, before Staind, in an acoustic band known as JCAT Lewis is renow ... more...

1. "75" lyrics

I'm starting to hate all these cigarettes and this lonliness and I'm starting to fade like the lines on
route 143

Sometimes I feel like I might wanna get off this ride
As my bedroom rolls down this long Highway at 75
And this Highway ain't no place for home loving drifters like me

All the hotels and bars and rides in stretched cars ain't for me
I'm tired of missing the moments I'll never get back
And I'm tired of missing the smiles on my little girls face

Sometimes I feel like I might wanna get off this ride
As my bedroom rolls down this long Highway at 75
And this Highway ain't no place for home loving drifters like me
All the hotels and bars and rides in stretched cars ain't for me

Sometimes I feel like I might wanna get off this ride
As my bedroom rolls down this long highway at 75
As my bedroom rolls down this long highway at 75
 
2. "The road" lyrics

There's a thousand miles and eighteen hours I've got a double drive down southbound 35
Got the hammer down, detroit made 525 pushing' my ass right down that line
And that smell of burnin' diesel fuel just tells me that I'm back out on the road

I've got a full-grown creeping' up on my tail, no I won't make bail in this small town jail no not right here
I've got the bird dog on, radio cranked, son of a bitch you betcha son
And that smell of burnin' diesel fuel just tells me that I'm back out on the road

Just left the jail with a handful of pills and I won't quit til I hit the coup in Abiline
I'm almost there, there's just a few more miles, I'll make the drop, I'll turn and burn I'm outta here
And that smell of burnin' diesel fuel just tells me that I'm back out on the road

And that smell of burnin' diesel fuel just tells me that I'm back out on the road
 
3. "Endless summer" lyrics

In the mornin' on a Saturday
I got my girls and we're skippin' town
In my '67 442 got the rag top down
Aldean's on the radio
Ain't it funny how they sing along
Makes you smile just a little bit because it's not a Miley Cyrus song

These are the moments we can share
Come on let me take you there

Loadin' up and living right
Fast cars on a summer night
Breeze is warm and the moon is bright
This endless summer

Boogie boards and diggin' holes
Sand castles and fishin' poles
What a way to save my soul
This endless summer.

Now we're at our little getaway
Zoe go and grab the fishin' poles
I can't think of any other better way for us to cleanse our souls
Fresh trapper on the wheel tonight
Cherrystones straight out the shell
Just another day in paradise, another story I can tell

These are the moments we can share
Come on let me take you there

Loadin' up and living right
Fast cars on a summer night
Breeze is warm and the moon is bright
This endless summer

Boogie boards and diggin' holes
Sand castles and fishin' poles
What a way to save our souls
This endless summer.

Monday morning and it's gettin' late
There's no traffic at the tollbooth line
Aldean's on the radio and my three girls know every line

These are the moments we can share
Come on let me take you there

Loadin' up and living right
Fast cars on a summer night
Breeze is warm and the music's right
This endless summer

Boogie boards and diggin' holes
Sand castles and fishin' poles
What a way to save our souls
This endless summer.
 
4. "Red, white and blue" lyrics

My grandmama worked on a factory floor,
Tawing leather for minimum wage,
While my granddaddy worked all the beer joints in town,
Tryin' to forget the memories he made.
Because when daddy was born in 1945,
He was fighting for what he believed.
Along with four other brothers, who were there by his side
They were ready and willing to bleed.

[Chorus:]
Red, white and blue
Those colors mean something
Those colors stay true.
Like my family before me,
I'll feel it too.
The blood that's in my veins,
Runs red, white and blue.

My daddy grew up, on the wrong side of poor
Rubbin' nickels together for heat.
Well, he and his sister had barely got by
With no clothes or the shoes on their feet.
Enlisted in service when he was 18
Like his daddy and his uncles before.
He was ready to die for what he believed
He was fightin' for what's worth fightin' for

[Chorus:]
The red, white and blue
Those colors mean something
Those colors stay true.
Like my family before me,
I'll feel it too.
The blood that's in my veins,
Runs red, white and blue.

Now me and my sisters, we've got kids of our own
And my brothers grab to turn sixteen
Well, he taught us all how to live off the land
To stand up for what we believe

[Chorus:]
The red, white and blue
Those colors mean something
Those colors stay true.
Like my family before me,
I'll feel it too.
The blood that's in my veins,
Runs red, white and blue.
The blood that's in my veins,
Runs red, white and blue.
 
5. "Lessons learned" lyrics

I've walked a mile in the shoes of a broken man
I've fallen down a thousand times and got up again
There's times I've talked to God like he's my only friend
There's times it seems the devil's trying to take me by the hand

In life, sometimes you gotta slow it down a little bit
Take time, rewind, appreciate the little things that life provides to you

I'll borrow pages from the life of Johnny Cash
I've tried to find the answer in the whiskey glass
I've done a lot of things back in my shady past
I've sat on that old metal bed just living way to fast

Cause in life, sometimes you gotta slow it down a little bit
Take time, rewind, appreciate the little things that life provides to you

And these pictures running through my head
As I sat on that cold metal bed
And wonder how I wound up here again

Cause in life, sometimes you gotta slow it down a little bit
Take time, rewind, appreciate the little things that life provides to you
 
6. "Forever" lyrics

Another cheap high-rise hotel room.
Another place another show.
Another meaning-less,
Destination with nowhere to go.

Another time to say "I love you".
Another time to say "Good night".
Another time to hear a dial tone,
'Cause no one wants to fight.
Why should we fight?

'Cause I can see it in your eyes.
Is the Sparkle gone forever?
Don't say forever.
And I can feel it when we touch.
Is the fire out forever?
Don't say forever.

Another time to miss a birthday.
Another time to miss my flight.
I've missed so much, that I don't know what I have,
And what I thought I might.
What I might...'cause

I can see it in your eyes.
Is the sparkle gone forever?
Don't say forever.

And I can feel it when we touch.
Is the fire out forever?
Don't say forever.

Now I'm lying beside you.
A stranger in your arms.
We drift apart together,
And come back like a storm.
Like a storm.

Another show up in Decatur.
Another one San Antone.
Somewhere else in this equator,
Takes me far away from home
I'm coming home, 'cause.

I can see it in your eyes.
The sparkle shines forever.
'Cause this is forever

And I can feel it when we touch.
The fire burns forever,
'Cause this is forever.
 
7. "Granddaddy's gun" lyrics

It sets above the mantel on a couple rusty nails
And it's worth a lot of money
And it damn sure ain't for sale
The good lord only knows all the stories it could tell
My Granddaddy's gun

He bought it new out of the sears and robuck catalog
And it shot a many a shells over the back of an old bird dog
And it backed a burglar down when grandma took the safety off
Granddaddy's gun.

[Chorus:]
It's just an old double barrel twelve
The stock is cracked and it kick's like hell
It wouldn't mean what mean's to me to no one
Cause I can still hear his voice when I put it to my shoulder
A guns like a woman son it's all how you hold her
He taught me a whole lot more than how to hunt
And one of these days I'll pass it on to my grandson
My Granddaddy's Gun

That old man gave it to me on the day I turned thirteen
With a half shot box of shells and a kit to keep it clean
I keep a picture in the case of that sweet old man and me
And Granddaddy's gun

[Chorus:]
It's just an old double barrel twelve
The stock was cracked and it kick's like hell
It wouldn't mean what mean's to me to no one
Cause I can still hear his voice when I put it to my shoulder
A guns like a woman son it's all how you hold her
He taught me a whole lot more than how to hunt
And one of these days I'll pass it on to my grandson
My Granddaddy's Gun

There's a long beard hanging on the livin' room wall
That I got with a box call and Granddaddy's gun
There's a beat up sign out there on forty nine
That me and billy joe shot up one night
With granddaddy's gun

It sets above the mantel on a couple rusty nails
It ain't worth a lot of money but it damn sure ain't for sale
 
8. "State lines" lyrics

I just left out of corpus and I'm heading into Nashville for the day
I left my mark on music row, now back out on the road, more shows to play

I've worn the tires off this bus ten times
I've carried contraband across state lines

I've played concert halls and holes in walls and places that a show just shouldn't be
There's stadiums and late night shows on every major network on TV

And I've worn the tires off this bus ten times
I've carried contraband across state lines

Well, I just left West Virginia, one more in Wabash and Then I'll come home
I can take this guitar off my back and hang up these ol boots cause I'm gone

And I've worn the tires off this bus ten times
I've carried contraband across state lines
I've followed yellow lines til I can't see
I'll never know where this road's takin' me
 
9. "Anywhere but here" lyrics

This road is going nowhere
And these, these shoes are worn too thin
There's always should have where I'm going
There's always could have where I've been

And all the things that I've said
And the road up ahead don't mean nothing, don't mean nothing
And the things that I've done and the man I've become disappear
I wish I was anywhere but here

There's always footsteps from behind me
Why don't they ever read the writing on the wall
And all the time I've spent rewinding
It might mean nothing, it might mean nothing at all

And all the things that I've said
And the road up ahead don't mean nothing, don't mean nothing
And the things that I've done and the man I've become disappeared
I wish I was anywhere but here

The bed next to me is empty
Just like the, the shell I'm still trying to fill
The things put in life to tempt me
They won't ever, they might break my will

And all the things that I've said
And the road up ahead don't mean nothing, don't mean nothing
And the things that I've done and the man I've become disappeared
I wish I was anywhere but here
Wish I was anywhere but here
 
10. "Party in h ell" lyrics

I've been up, tore down, things I've been through
And the angels won't take me?away
And I've talked to St. Peter, he won't let me pass
So it looks like I'm going today.

So lets have a party and tell 'em I'm home
There'll be Waylon and Whitley as well
And The Devil will be dealing' the cards as they lay
So let's have a party in hell

Washed up, worn out, down on my knees
But the angels won't take me?away
The bartender serves brown liquor in hell
and that sure sounds like heaven to me

So lets have a party and tell 'em I'm home
There'll be Janis and Jim Beam as well
And Rick James will bring all the cocaine you want
So let's have a party in hell

So lets have a party and tell 'em we're home
They'll be no-show and Junior and merle
And Jamey Johnson will be drinkin' from a brown paper bag
So lets have a party in hell
