Well, I’m doin’ ten to twenty
In the frozen granite state
And every day I go to work
To stamp out license plates
Everyday I got to work
And every night I cry
Cause every license plate I make tells me to
Live Free or Die

Live Free or Die
Oh Lord tell me why
Can’t they say seatbelts fastened
Or Oklahoma is OK
Vacation land sounds mighty great
I wouldn’t mind stampin’ out the Garden State
It’s enough to make me cry
Live Free or Die

Well I didn’t mean to shoot that man
Why the gun just went off in my hand
I caught him with my wife
And it cost that man his life
I’d just got home from the factory
And that man was sittin’ where I’m supposed to be
Now he’s up there in the sky and I’m stuck with
Live Free or Die

Live Free or Die
Oh Lord tell me why
Can’t they say seatbelts fastened
Or Oklahoma is OK
Vacation land sounds mighty great
I wouldn’t mind stampin’ out the Garden State
It’s enough to make me cry
Live Free or Die

So let this be a lesson
To all you married men out there
That patience is a virtue
So make your plans with care
So if you catch your wife with another man
It’s best to hold off as long as you can
Then shoot him in another state where they got
A different license plate

One of my absolute favorite songs:

If I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

If I were Roy Rogers
I'd sure enough be single
I couldn't bring myself to marrying old Dale
It'd just be me and trigger
We'd go riding through them movies
Then we'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

The mystery masked man was smart
He got himself a Tonto
'Cause Tonto did the dirty work for free
But Tonto he was smarter
And one day said kemo sabe
Kiss my ass I bought a boat
I'm going out to sea

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

And if I were like lightning
I wouldn't need no sneakers
I'd come and go wherever I would please
And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree
And I'd scare 'em by the light pole
But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

If I Had a Boat - Lyle Lovett

Here ya go, H!!!!!!! Enjoy!!!!!! (And don't cry!!) We played it a good 5 times last evening - after reading your request - and just danced and danced and danced!

I'm goin' back to Salome
Things could get ugly if I stay
And I was just leavin' anyway
I could sink or swim
But then again
I could go back to Salome

To be the champion of lost causes
To be the cutter of the losses
Or just to let sleeping dogs lay
I might be worse for wear
But darlin' I don't care
I'm going back to Salome

To find a friend
To find my way home again
Dear Lord please lead me not astray
'Cause I could shoot to kill
But better still
I could go back to Salome

To find a friend
To find my way home again
And if I die before today
Then you can box my ass
Be kindly when I pass
And take me back to Salome
