Hunker Down
Don't care if I'm not your kind of guy
(don't batten down your hatches)
you can tell your mama a little white lie
(don't batten down your hatches)
you can do me a little rough
but I don't mind a couple of scratches
fool around and let's hunker down


Don't worry 'bout what your friends will say
(don't batten down your hatches)
you can take my hand and have your way
(don't batten down your hatches)
please oh baby please just let me in
we'll mix & match, let's fool around and hunker down


Let's hunker down for the night
Let's hunker down, I'll keep you warm tonite
don't batten down the hatches baby
let's turn out the light
and hunker down for the night


You can play a little bit hard to get
(don't batten down your hatches)
if you think you got your mind set just
(don't batten down your hatches)
well I'm crazy for your daisy, just don't form any attachments
fool around and let's hunker down


Let's hunker down for the night
Let's hunker down, I'll keep you warm tonite
don't batten down the hatches baby
let's turn out the light
and hunker down for the night


You can love me, leave me, say goodbye
no strings attached, no tears to cry
some icing on your cake then we can make
another batch, let's fool around and hunker down


Let's hunker down for the night
Let's hunker down, I'll keep you warm tonite
don't batten down the hatches baby
let's turn out the light
and hunker down for the night
Let's-a hunker down, I'll keep you warm tonite
don't batten down the hatches baby
let's turn out the light
and hunker down for the night




Go-To Parts


Your sunshine smile, it lights my day
your moonlit eyes show me the way
but I can't resist those go-to parts or the lust in my heart


late night kisses with dinner is fine
honeysuckle hugs or a nice red wine
but I can't wait fo' yo' dessert and taste the love beneath your curtsey


oh, those go-to parts... oh, your go-to parts


Your warm embrace puts me at ease
when I see your face lookin' up at me
but I thank the lord for your sweet lips, my knees are weak, can't feel my hips and


oh, those go-to parts.... oh, your go-to parts... oh, oh, oh your go-to parts


Your flame red hair and porcelain skin
them alone keep me thinkin' 'bout sin
I can't deny them feminine curves
but that's not the reason that you're my girl... those go-to parts


Those go-to parts.... oh, those go-to parts
oh-oh those go-to parts.... oh, oh, oh those go-to parts.... mm-mmm



Home To My Whiskey


Cut work a little early... another corporate day
necessary evil... oh the things I do for pay, the things I do for pay
I'm goin' home, home, home -- home to my whiskey


My soul feels dirty and my heart's grown cold
you stab me in the back and I'll get you back tenfold, get you back tenfold


I'm goin' home, home, home -- home to my whiskey
I'm goin' home, home, home -- home to my whiskey
I'm goin' home, home, home...
Whiskey... home to my whiskey
hell I could drink fifty, home to my whiskey
I'm goin' home, home, home -- home to my whiskey


Aww yeah, oh it's gonna taste so good, mm-mmm... 


I'm gonna crack that bottle, sip the blues away
I'm gonna hit you harder than a punch drunk cabaret


Whiskey... home to my whiskey
hell I could drink fifty, home to my whiskey
Whiskey! Home to my whiskey, hell, I'm so thirsty
home to my whiskey
I'm goin' home, home, home -- home to my whiskey
I'm goin' home, home, home



Bonnie Jean


You lie over the ocean and the sea
bring back my bonnie, my bonnie to me
the note in the bottle contained my treachery
let you swim to shore alone, regrettably


Bonnie Jean, my Bonnie Jean
I cast away what could have been
like a ship of fool or a king who's lost his queen
Bonnie Jean, my Bonnie Jean


The mirage a trois said to fear and flee
oh, jump from the boat and abandon thee
you patched all the holes and you sailed free
but not without some scars and mutiny


Bonnie Jean, my Bonnie Jean
I cast away what could have been
like a ship of fool or a king who's lost his queen, yeah
Bonnie Jean, my Bonnie Jean
Bonnie Jean, my Bonnie Jean... whoa oh oh oh
my Bonnie Jean, oh my Bonnie Jean


I have long since learned to love and wait
oh the fine art of appreciation
shipwreck of my soul and your first mate
to save you from your fate
to save you from your fate came too late


Bonnie Jean, my Bonnie Jean
I cast away what could have been
like a ship of fool or a king who's lost his queen, yeah
Bonnie Jean, my Bonnie Jean
I cast away what could've bee-ee-een
love overboard like a burial at sea, yeah
Bonnie Jean, my Bonnie Jean
Bonnie Jean, my Bonnie Jean... whoa oh oh oh




The Pucks Of Despair


laced up the skates, put in the game late, did you know
that I'd stand in the crease, butterfly on my knees just for you
or even take a high stick or two

'Til our season is thru, I'll protect and love you oh I swear
the ghost may be holy but if I were goalie I'd stop the pucks of despair


It's cold, take my jacket... the extra attacker is on the ice
you'll never be lonely, did you get the zamboni I sent? isn't it nice
a pat on the butt will suffice


Darlin' fear not... I'll block all the shots I can bear
the ghost may be holy but if I were goalie I'd stop the pucks of despair
all the pucks of despair, yes I'd stop...


All the pucks of despair... all the pucks of despair... yes I'd stop....


as your biggest fan, still fret that I am not enough
life's full of worry, you can wear my old jersey for luck
and maybe we'll get the game puck


'Til our season is thru, I'll protect and love you oh I swear
Darlin' fear not... I'll block all the shots I can bear
the ghost may be holy but if I were goalie I'd stop the pucks of despair
all the pucks of despair, all the pucks of despair
yes I'd stop the pucks of despair




January Wind


This winter is too goddamn long
but I can touch Hwy 16 and know you're not so far
we're both just ordinary prairie fools
ain't no distance or season gonna keep me from you
never gonna stop believin', can't top the way I'm feelin'
let's blow thru the blues like a January wind
let's blow thru the blues like a January wind


And though we didn't know our daddies
there's so much good in common like I want you badly
people gonna say that you just can't start again
but I'll wait for your kisses in the cold of a January wind


never gonna stop believin'
I can't top the way I'm feelin'
ooh you make me wanna take on, take on anything
like a rock I'm solid
stand steadfast & tall and let's blow thru the blues like a January wind
let's blow thru the blues like a January wind


sea of white and a thousand miles
it won't matter then when I see you smile, no no no
sea of white and a thousand miles
it won't matter then when I see you smile


never gonna stop believin'
I can't top the way I'm feelin'
let's blow thru the blues like January wind
like a rock I'm solid
stand steadfast & tall and lets blow thru the blues like a January wind


never gonna stop believin'
I can't top the way I'm feelin'
oh you make me wanna take on, take on anything
like a rock I'm solid
stand steadfast & tall and let's blow thru the blues like a January wind
let's blow thru the blues like a January wind
oh let's blow thru the blues like a January wind


this winter has been goddamn long
