OH WELL, IT TAKES ALL KINDS; RIGHT. HERE IS ANOTHER SONG OFF OF THE LATEST CD AND WROTE BY MICHAEL GOOD RICH AND I HEAR IT AND IT'S "USED TO LIVE BY THE RIVER". USUALLY I WAS LOOKING ON YOUTUBE FOR VIDEOS AND WE FOUND A BAND FROM NORTH CAROLINA COVERING US COVERING HIM SO THEY WERE -- WELL, ISN'T THAT SOMETHING?  SO ANYWAY -- ONE, TWO, THREE, TWO, TWO, THREE. " "I USED TO LIVE BY THE RIVER, I USED TO HAVE A WIFE AND KIDS, I USED TO LIVE BY THE RIVER, YOU KNOW I DID". "I HAD DOGS AND I HAD CHICKENS. HAD MY OWN PIECE OF LAND, AND I HAD EVERYTHING I NEEDED IN THE PALM OF MY HAND". "I COULD HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE I COULD HAVE CHANGED MY TUNE, COULD HAVE CHANGED MY MIND, UNDER A SILVERY MOON". "WELL, THE RAIN STARTED FALLING, AND I IT RAINED ALL NIGHT AND DAY, TILL I SAW EVERYTHING I'D WORKED FOR JUST SWEPT AWAY". "THERE WAS NO WHERE LEFT TO RUN. THERE WAS NO PLACE LEFT TO HIDE, AND THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD DO ABOUT THE RISING TIDE". "I COULD HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE. I COULD HAVE CHANGED MY TUNE. COULD HAVE CHANGED MY MIND, UNDER A BLOODSHOT MOON". "I COULD HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE. I COULD HAVE CHANGED MY TUNE, COULD HAVE CHANGED MY MIND, UNDER A BLOODSHOT MOON". "I COULD HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE.

"BECAUSE I'VE GOT A FEELING, FEELING SOMETHING IS WRONG. WELL NOW I'M HOODED ON A FEELING AND THAT FEELING IS GONE". "I DIDN'T ASK TO YOU COME AROUND.  NO I NEVER SAID "PLEASE"  AND IF THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE COME TO HEAR, THEN I GUESS IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO LEAVE".  "I DIDN'T MEAN TO GIVE UP, GIVE UP ON YOUR LOVE, BUT I THOUGHT YOU HAD A LIFE TO LIVE AND I THOUGHT I HAD SOME TIME TO GIVE, BUT I GUESS I CAN SEE THEY WAS WRONG". "I DIDN'T ASK YOU TO COME AROUND, NO, I NEVER SAID "PLEASE" , AND IF THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE COME TO HEAR, THEN I GUESS IT'S GOING TIME FOR YOU TO LEAVE"  "AND I DIDN'T MEAN TO GIVE UP, GIVE UP ON YOUR LOVE. BUT I THOUGHT YOU HAD A LIFE TO LIVE, AND I THOUGHT I HAD SOME TIME TO GIVE, BUT I GUESS I CAN SEE THAT I WAS WRONG" . [APPLAUSE]

"I LEFT HIM FACE DOWN IN THE WOLD BLOODY GROUND, MY DARLING WAS HOME UNAWARE.  SHE'D BEEN IN HIS ARMS, THIS OTHER CONFESSED, BUT HER LIFE WAS ALL I WOULD SPARE". "I TRAVEL NO MORE THE HILLS OF KENTUCKY, OR HANG FROM THE NECK TILL I DIE.  MOORY TOOK HER LOVE AND GAVE TO ANOTHER, THE REASON TO MEET HIS DEMISE.  LOVE'S LEFT BEHIND, HOW SHE CRIES". "SINCE THAT DARKEST HOUR SHE NEVER MORE SAW HIM, AND I HAVE BEEN GONE A LONG TIME.  MAY SHE NEVER KNOW IF I TOOK HIS LIFE OR IF IT WAS HE WHO TOOK MINE". "I TRAVEL NO MORE THE HILLS OF KENTUCKY OR HANG FROM THE NECK TILL I DIE.  MARY TOOK HER LOVE AND GAVE TO ANOTHER, THE REASON I MEET HIS DEMISE.  LOVE'S LEFT BEHIND HOW SHE CRIES".
