Zac Brown Band Free

[Violin playing]

So we live in our old van

Travel all across this land

Me and you

We’ll end up hand in hand

Somewhere down on the sand

Just me and you

Just as free

Free as we’ll ever be

Just as free

Free as we’ll ever be

We drive until the city lights

Dissolve into a country sky

Just me and you

Lay underneath the harvest moon

Do all the things that lovers do

Just me and you

Just as free

Free as we’ll ever be

Just as free

Free as we’ll ever be

Ever be

No we don’t have a lot of money

No we don’t have a lot of money

No we don’t have a lot of money

All we need is love

We’re free as we’ll ever be

Just as free

Free as we’ll ever be

Ever be

So we live in our old van

Travel all across this land

Me and you

Zac Brown Band Colder Weather

She’d trade Colorado if he’d take her with him

Closes the door before the winter lets the cold in,

And wonders if her love is strong enough to make him stay,

She’s answered by the tail lights shining through the window pane

[Chorus:]

He said I wanna see you again

But I’m stuck in colder weather

Maybe tomorrow will be better

Can I call you then?

She said you’re ramblin’ man

You ain’t ever gonna change

You got a gypsy soul to blame

And you were born for leavin’.

At a truck stop diner just outside of Lincoln,

The night is black as the coffee he was drinkin’,

And in the waitress’ eyes he sees the same ol’ light a-shinin’,

He thinks of Colorado and the girl he left behind him

[Chorus:]

He said I wanna see you again

But I’m stuck in colder weather

Maybe tomorrow will be better

Can I call you then?

She said you’re ramblin’ man

You ain’t ever gonna change

You got a gypsy soul to blame

And you were born for leavin’ (born for leavin’)

Well, it’s a winding road

When you’re in the lost and found

You’re a lover – I’m a runner

And we go ’round ‘n ’round

And I love you but I leave you

I don’t want you but I need you

You know it’s you who calls me back here, baby

Oh I wanna see you again

But I’m stuck in colder weather

Maybe tomorrow will be better

Can I call you then?

Cause I’m a ramblin’ man

I ain’t ever gonna change (I ain’t ever gonna change)

I got a gypsy soul to blame

And I was born for leavin’ (born for leavin’)

When I close my eyes I see you

No matter where I am

I can smell your perfume through these whispering pines

I’m with your ghost again

It’s a shame about the weather

But I know soon we’ll be together

And I can’t wait ’til then

I can’t wait ’til then

Zac Brown Band As She’s Walking Away

We never spoke a word

But every thought she had I heard

From across the room

We were standing face to face

I couldn’t find the words to say

Gimme one more move

I don’t even know her name

I guess foolish pride’s to blame

Now I’m falling in love as she’s walking away

And my heart won’t tell my mind

To tell my mouth what it should say

I may have lost this battle

Live to fight another day

Now I’m fallin in love as she’s walkin away

Wise man next to me did say

about the one that got away

Son I missed my chance

Don’t you let regret take place

Of the dreams you have to chase

Ask her to dance

(Go on son)

You might fall down on your face

Roll the dice and have some faith

But don’t be fallin in love as she’s walkin away

When your heart won’t tell your mind

To tell your mouth what it should say

May have lost this battle

Live to fight another day

Don’t be fallin in love as she’s walkin away

You might fall down on your face

Roll the dice and have some faith

Don’t be fallin in love as she’s walkin away

When your heart won’t tell your mind

To tell your mouth what it should say

May have lost this battle

Live to fight another day

Don’t be fallin

Fallin in

Fallin in love as she’s walkin away

Zac Brown Band Big Fat Bitch

We were driving to Birmingham, Alabama and my buddy Keith was driving the truck

And this lady about ran us off the road in a cadillac.

She just kinda smiled when she went by, and he has road rage and he said look at that Big Fat Bitch

So I grabbed my little travel guitar out of the back and went

Big fat bitch

she’s a big ol big ol fat bitch

she goes to Ryan’s and they say, “Shit!

this one’s gonna cost us…

she’s a big ol bitch!”

She’s a big ol bitch

She sweats grits

you can hide a pound of dope

under one of her tits

Big fat bitch

She’s a big ol bitch

Who stole Christmas?

The Grinch

Who stole the Twinkies?

big fat bitch!

She’s a big ol bitch

Yeah she had this cajun friend

who had a pet alligator

She ate that some-bitch

like it was a green Now N Later

or a fried green da-mator

You’d have to have a turbo-foaming car wash brush

to masterbate her

She’s a big ol bitch

She’s a big ol bitch

When she was eight years old she had a Pogo stick that would say, “hey Wanda!”

And they’d go “song-tong-thong-song-tong-thong”

And now her pogo stick says, “HOLY FUCKING SHIT!”

And they go “Bount. Bount.”

She’s a big ol bitch

She’s a big ol bitch

She gargles and drools and spits

and she makes all kinds of noise

She chases the ice cream man down Cunningham

in her corduroys

She’s a big ol bitch

She’s a big ol big fat bitch!!!!

Zac Brown Band Uncaged

Gonna lift to the great wide open

Wanna set my spirit free

Won’t stop till I reach the ocean

Gonna break these chains holding me

Uncaged

Gonna swim in the coldest river

Gonna drink from a mountain spring

Deep in the land of the great wide open

Let the water roll all over me

Uncaged

Oh, wanna swim in the sunshine

And every day find a way to face my fears

Oh, wanna get in the wind

Gonna take every chance I’m given

Feel the wind through the open plains

Freedom is a gift, get livin

Go chase that sunset highway down

You got to get uncaged!

Zac Brown Band Smoke Rise

She was something in her formative years

She’d hide her accent, it would reappear

When she would brag on what Daddy Bought last night

Only pretty girls were in that crowd

They’d tease a handful of poor kids out loud

And even then I knew it wasn’t right

Smoke rises,

You were never kind

Good news,

I’ve left you all behind

Some who

Hoped that it would last

Smoke rise, I’m glad you’re in my past

Most of the kids were better than me

Or at least they thought so,

And it was plain to see

That children are cruel

And I didn’t have a fighting chance

I wasn’t a jock, I wasn’t a brain

We weren’t well-off and Mama couldn’t explain

Why no one would take a poor boy to the dance

Smoke rises,

You were never kind

Good news,

I’ve left you all behind

Some who,

Hoped that it would last

Smoke rise, I’m glad you’re in my past

[x2]

Those bold rich kids find it hard to embrace

When they bus black kids in from all over the place

The county tried to prove their schools were all the same

Old Jim Crow tried to integrate

But in the South its hard to relate

When Grandpa used the n-word with no shame

Oh, Smoke rises,

You were never kind

Good news,

I’ve left you all behind

Some who,

Hoped that it would last

Smoke rise, I’m glad you’re in my past

Zac Brown Band All Alright

Made me grow

Then you cut me down

A north wind on a garden growin’

You made me think you were mine

Then you changed your mind

I’m lost as a feather

In a hurricane

There’s no way to measure

How far I am from ok, ok let me tell you

There’s no good reason why

I can’t move on

I lay my heart on these tracks

When your train comes along

And it was all alright

Now it’s all all wrong

That’s just how

It goes when you’re gone

You may not realize

All the lies at the time but

The truth will find you

That storm is gonna come

Gonna wash you away like Sodom and Gomorrah

There’s no good reason why

We can’t move on

I lay my heart on these tracks

When your train comes along

And it was all alright

Now it’s all all wrong

That’s just how

It goes when you’re wrong

[Guitar solo]

Go round in circles

Like an old golden band

As cold as the pillow

By your empty nightstand

Then somthin’ comes over me

I lose my head

I guess God did not make me

A one woman man

I’d have a lot to give

If I still gave a damn

That’s just how

It goes when you’re wrong

And it was all alright

Now it’s all all wrong

But that’s just how

It goes when you’re gone

And it was all alright

Now it’s all all wrong

And that’s just how

It goes when you’re gone

When you’re gone

When you’re long long gone

Zac Brown Band Nothing

Cried all night when you told me that I’d lost you

I died inside as I watched you walk away

And all this time I didn’t doubt your reasons

But I can’t heal what you can’t replace

But now I sleep like a baby,

And all my dreams come true

‘Cause the rest of my life has nothing to do with you

Pulled up my favorite chair at my favorite tavern

I turned to see you standing there with envy in your eyes

And I saved your life from 13 years of anger

But I broke every bone on the way home swinging at the sky

Now I sleep like a baby,

And all my dreams come true

‘Cause the rest of my life has nothing to do with you

Stumbled in to find you cryin’ in the kitchen

I argued with a broken heart and fabricated pride

And the battle raged for hours, but I didn’t have the power

To make you understand so you turned and said goodbye

Now I sleep like a baby,

And all my dreams come true

‘Cause the rest of my life has nothing to do with you

Now I sleep like a baby

And all my dreams come true

‘Cause the rest of my life has nothing to do, nothing to do, nothing to do with you

Zac Brown Band Young And Wild

(I remember, I remember back in the day)

When I look up at the stars

No matter where you are

You’re always in my heart

You’re always in my heart

When the walls are closing in

You’re the sun upon my skin

You’re always where I am

You’re always where I am

Wild child

Living in the moment

World in my arms

Too young to know it

Oh, you made me feel so alive

(We were young and wild)

Had a good thing going

But we couldn’t make it

Even if I could

I wouldn’t change it

When I look back I just smile

We were young and wild

When I was feeling black and blue

I could always count on you

You always made me new

Always made me new

And even though it was the end

If you ever need a friend

I’ll be coming back again

I’ll be coming back again

Wild child

Nothing that could stop us

Parking in the cut

And fogging up the windows

Oh, you made me feel so alive

(We were young and wild)

They say nothing good’s

Gonna last forever

We were pedal to the metal

And always together

When I look back I just smile

I lay there silent in the sand

And listen while you whisper

To another lonely setting sun

Whose heart is always distant

Memories won’t be the death of me

As long as I could feel you

Long as I could feel you

Wild child

Do you still remember

Skip school, drink

And get high agenda

Oh, it made me feel so alive

(We were young and wild)

Like my first real love

That I thought would make it

Our greatest gifts can be

Mistakes we’re making

So when I look back I just smile

We were young and wild

(I remember, I remember back in the day)

(I remember, I remember back in the day)

Young and wild

(I remember, I remember back in the day, I remember)

Young and wild

(I remember, I remember back in the day, I remember)

Zac Brown Band Day For The Dead

I see them rise

From beneath the ground

Life was lost but now it’s found

The ghosts want somethin’

To take their turn

To dance around the stone

Work the fingers to the bone

Hold on to nothin’

Day for the dead,

To dance among the living

Day for the dead

To dance among the living

We find forgiveness

For the wrong we’ve done

Watch the dyin’ of the day

Another settin’ sun

We find redemption

In the love that we’ve won

Just a little company

Until our work is done

Day for the dead

To dance among the living

Day for the dead

To dance among the living

Who says you can’t go back?

Who says you can’t go back,

Back to where you started from? (are you runnin’ away?)

Who says you can’t go back? (are you runnin’ away?)

Who says you can’t go back,

Back to where you started from? (are you runnin’ away?)

Who says you can’t go back? (are you runnin’ away?)

[2x]

The moon falls on the river Styx

The man will meet you there

Coins lay on your eyes

Just to pay his fare

Day for the dead

To dance among the living

Day for the dead

To dance among the living

Day for the dead

To dance among the living
