LEE ROCKER - BestOffront

Note: I am only adding the lyrics to those previously unreleased songs

BURNING LOVE
Lord almighty, I feel my temperature rising
Higher and higher its burning through to my soul
Girl, girl, girl you gonna set me on fire
My brain is flaming I don’t know which way to go

Your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With your burning love

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
I feel my temperature rising
Help me, I’m flaming, I must be a hundred and nine
Burning, burning, burning and nothing can cool me
I just might turn into smoke but I’m feeling fine

Your kisses lift me higher
Like a sweet song of a choir
And you light my morning sky
With your burning love

Your kisses lift me higher
Like a sweet song of a choir
And you light my morning sky
With your burning love

It’s coming closer
The flames are linking my body
Won’t you help me
I feel like I’m slipping away
Its hard to breath
And my chest is a-heaving
Lord have mercy
I’m burning a hole where I lay

Your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With your burning love
With your burning love

Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love

 

WHISKEY RIVER
Whiskey River take my mind
Don’t let the memory torture me
Whiskey River don’t run dry
You’re all I’ve got, take care of me

Whiskey River take my mind
Don’t let the memory torture me (oh, no)
Whiskey River don’t run dry
You’re all I’ve got, take care of me

I’m drowning in a whiskey river
Refresh the memory of the wetness in my soul
Feeling the amber nectar flowin’ from my mind
Warm an empty heart she left so cold

Whiskey River take my mind
Don’t let the memory torture me
Whiskey River don’t run dry
You’re all I’ve got, take care of me

I’m drowning in a whiskey river
Refresh the memory of the wetness in my soul
Feeling the amber nectar flowin’ from my mind
Warm an empty heart she left so cold

Whiskey River take my mind
Don’t let the memory torture me
Whiskey River don’t run dry
You’re all I’ve got, take care of me

Whiskey River takes my mind
Don’t let the memory torture me
Whiskey River don’t run dry
You’re all I’ve got, take care of me

 

VIVA LAS VEGAS
Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of money that’s ready to burn
So get those stakes up higher
There’s a thousand pretty women waitin’ out there
And they’re all livin’ devil may care
And I’m just the devil with love to spare
Viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas

How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
Cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn’t sleep a minute away
There’s black jack and poker and the roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on every deal
All you needs a strong heart and a nerve of steel
Viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas with you neon flashin’
And your one armbandits crashin’
All those hopes down the drain
Viva Las Vegas turnin’ day into nighttime
Turnin’ night into daytime
If you see it once you’ll never be the same again

I’m gonna keep going’ on the run
I’m gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last dime
If I wind up broke up well
I’ll always remember that I had a swingin’ time
I’m gonna give it everything Ive got
Lady luck please let the dice stay hot
Let me shout a seven with every shot
Viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas
Viva, viva Las Vegas

 

HARD HEADED WOMAN
Well, a hard headed woman
A soft hearted man
Been the cause of trouble
Ever since the world began
Oh yeah, ever since the world began (a-aha)
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man

Adam told to Eve
“Listen here to me,
Don’t you let me catch you
Messin’ round that apple tree”
Oh yeah, ever since the world began (a-aha)
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man

Ever since the world began (a-aha)
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man

Samson told Delilah loud and clear
“Keep your cotton pickin’ fingers out my curly hair”
Oh yeah, ever since the world began (a-aha)
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man

I heard about a king who was doin’ swell
Till he started playing with that evil Jezebel
Oh yeah, ever since the world began (a-aha)
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man

I got a woman
A head like a rock
If she ever went away
I’d cry around the clock
Oh yeah, ever since the world began (a-aha)
Well, a hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man (a-aha)
Well, a hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man (oh yeah)

 

THOSE DAYS ARE DONE
I was searching for an answer
I was looking in your eye
Road is going faster
And the miles pick up by
I asked you ‘bout question
You looked like you’ve been crying
Say you don’t remember
But I know that it’s a lie

You were still in high-school
I was running with the band
Think it’ll last forever
Let it slip right through your hand
From a haze of beer and cigarettes
Left with all the smoke
Nights with you I don’t regret
You’re running out of rope

Ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying in the sun
Those days are done

Well, the winter is blowing past you
Like a razor blade
It cuts you down
Heading back to where it started
Crying all your broken hearted days

Everything is easier
Nothing is like it seems
Baby, what are you driving at
Ain’t a living sin
You were working on a answer
You were looking for some fun
Baby don’t you know
That there ain’t no place left to run

Ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying in the sun
Those days are done

Well, the days are growing shorter
Time is closer then
Picture you remember
Or you work the perfect plan
Sometimes it seems like yesterday
Nothing’s like it seems
Everything’s heading south
You sometimes gotta scream

Ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying in the sun
Those days are done

I was searching for an answer
I was looking in your eye
Road is going faster
And the miles pick up by
I asked you ‘bout question
You looked like you’ve been crying
Say you don’t remember
But I know that it’s a lie

Ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying
And the summer days are done

Well, the winter is blowing past you
Like a razor blade
That cuts you down
Heading back to where it started
Crying all your broken hearted days

Everything is easier
Nothing is like it seems
Baby, what are you driving at
Ain’t a living sin
You were working on a answer
You were looking for some fun
Baby don’t you know
That there ain’t no place left to run

Ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying in the sun
Those days are done

I said, there ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying
And the summer days are done

I said, there ain’t no use in trying
Ain’t no in lying
And the summer days are done
