Take a Ride 03:49
She blows a kiss and sips her drink She gives the bar a dirty wink She picks a guy to take her home "Come and have some fun it won't last so long" She'll take a ride (x2) She'll take a ride anytime but she don't wanna ride with me She's got cheats and lowlifes in a line But she's made it clear she won't be mine Oh don't you know it hurts me so When you're off with every man you know She'll take a ride (x2) She'll take a ride anytime but she don't wanna ride with me She picks a guy to take her home "Come have some fun it won't last so long She's got cheats and lowlifes in a line But she's made it clear she won't be mine She'll take a ride (x2) She'll take a ride anytime but she don't wanna ride with me

I don't need your sympathy I don't need your pity I don't need you to patronise me So don't pray for me Don't you pray for me I might just be the king of lost causes So keep your sighs, your rolling eyes and heavy pauses I don't believe in mystic forces So don't pray for me Don't you pray for me I don't need your good intentions So keep your holier-than-thou pretensions I don't need salvation I don't need redemption So don't pray for me Don't you pray for me

In my time of dying I don't don't want nobody to moan All I want for you to do Is take me when I'm gone Well well well So I can die easy Well well well Well well well I can die easy Jesus gonna make up my dying bed Meet me Jesus, meet me Meet me in the middle of the air If these wings should fail me lord won't you meet me with another pair Well well well So I can die easy Well well well Well well well I can die easy Jesus gonna make up my dying bed In my time of dying I don't want nobody to cry All I want for you to do Is take me when I die Well well well So I can die easy Well well well Well well well I can die easy Jesus gonna make up my dying bed
