Track Name: Put Your Clothes Back On
I know it's forever, I know that it's love
Even though you dance in a gentlemen's club
You're just doing what you gotta do to survive
And one day when you're through I'm gonna make you my wife

When Friday comes around I lay my money down
And watch your body move on the pole
But all these other fellas make me so damn jealous
That I'm about to lose control

Put your clothes back on
And meet me at the door
Cuz I ain't gonna watch em watchin' you anymore
How'm I gonna love you when you're up there in a thong?
Just give your man a break and put your clothes back on

Busted-up women, eight-dollar beers
Loud, loud music that nobody hears
Seems like you've been doing this a little too long
Last night I caught you crying to a Kid Rock song

When Friday comes around I lay my money down
And watch your body move on the pole
But all these other fellas make me so damn jealous
That I'm about to lose control

Put your clothes back on
And meet me at the door
Cuz I ain't gonna watch em watchin' you anymore
How'm I gonna love you when you're up there in a thong?
Just give your man a break and put your clothes back on

Life is expensive and money is tight
But you've been walking out with more and more every night
Are you dancing better for the boys at the bar
Or are you in the back room breaking my heart?

When Friday comes around I lay my money down
And watch your body move on the pole
But all these other fellas make me so damn jealous
That I'm about to lose control

Put your clothes back on
And meet me at the door
Cuz I ain't gonna watch em watchin' you anymore
How'm I gonna love you when you're up there in a thong?
Just give your man a break and put your clothes back on
Track Name: Wine, Women & Wrong
Well, I'm out on the town every night
And I haven't woke up in my own bed for a while
But I'm just a man and a man can only last so long
Living on wine, women, and wrong

All the bartenders know me by name
And as long as I'm paying the woman keep playing my game
Feel like I'm living in the middle of a Gary Stewart song
All about wine, women, and wrong

Wine and women and wrong got me swimming
In the middle of an ocean of pain
And the more I keep drinkin'
The deeper I'm sinkin'
Now I'm 'bout to hit the bottom again

Told my baby I'd be home in 'bout an hour
That was three days ago and I know I can't go home to her now
Lost my wallet, lost my jacket, lost my keys, sold my phone
Got nothing but wine, women, and wrong

Wine and women and wrong got me swimming
In the middle of an ocean of pain
And the more I keep drinkin'
The deeper I'm sinkin'
Now I'm 'bout to hit the bottom again

Hey, bartender, would you play "Single Again" again?
Pour another double for me and my new best friend
She seems like the perfect little partner for this one-way cruise I'm on
To the land of wine, women, and wrong
Track Name: Disgraceland
I woke up this morning the same way
I've been waking up the last 500 days
Feeling like I'm gonna die right where I lay
And if I did then that would be okay
I can't remember when it all went so wrong
I can't believe that it's been going on for so long
Walking like a zombie, talking like a thief
Acting like half a man

Living in Disgraceland, baby
Living in Disgraceland, baby
I'm living in Disgraceland, baby
And I wanna go home, I wanna go home
I wanna go home

I used to light up every room in the old days
Never thought of giving up on the old ways
Never needed any sleep on the weekend
Kept my feet on the bottom of the deep end
I didn't know that I had to come up for air
I was drowning and I felt like I belonged there
Walking like a zombie, talking like a thief
Acting like half a man

Living in Disgraceland, baby
Living in Disgraceland, baby
I'm living in Disgraceland, baby
And I wanna go home, I wanna go home
I wanna go home

It's been such a long, long time now
(Oh yeah, oh yeah)
Can't remember what it's like now
(Oh no, oh no)
And I'm staring at the door
And I don't wanna be here
No, I don't wanna be here anymore

If I stay in the bed I'll be all right
If I get up instead it's a long night
I said goodbye to everyone I could ever trust
Most of all I gave up on us
When you're out in the world making sense of it
Do you ever think of me just a little bit?
Walking like a zombie, talking like a thief
Acting like half a man

Living in Disgraceland, baby
Living in Disgraceland, baby
I'm living in Disgraceland, baby
And I wanna go home, I wanna go home

I'm living in Disgraceland, baby
Oh, what do I do?
Every night I'm sleeping with a picture of you
Living in Disgraceland, baby
What do I get?
I never learned a lesson that I didn't forget
I'm living in Disgraceland, baby
Where do I go?
Just can't make it alone
And i wanna go home, I wanna go home
I wanna go home
Track Name: 30 Days
Out in the desert they got a place
Where everyone has fallen from grace
They take your soul, plug in the holes
Patch you up and send you on your way

I got no time for acting clever
Better get my act together
And that's okay
Well, I'm out of second chances
And I'm looking for the answers
Cuz I'm back out in the world in 30 days

She said, "I love you and that is why
You're going to Arizona for a while
And when you get back you'd better be
The kind of man who's strong enough for me"

So I got no time for acting clever
Better get my act together
And that's okay
Well, I'm out of second chances
And I'm looking for the answers
Cuz I'm back out in the world in 30 days

They say if I admit i got a problem and I turn it over to a power greater than myself I'm gonna feel all right
They caught me smoking with the girls this morning, now I won't be going into town with everybody tonight

30 days go mighty fast
When you're sifting through the wreckage of the past
And 30 days go mighty slow
When you're living in a world that you don't know

I got no time for acting clever
Better get my act together
Baby, that's okay
Well, I'm out of second chanes
And I'm looking for the answers
Cuz I'm back out in the world in 30 days
I said I'm out of second chances
I go looking for the answers
Cuz I'm back out in the world in 30 days
Oh yeah, 30 days
Track Name: I'm Sorry
I just got back from 30 days
And i had to sit you down and say
That I'm sorry, so sorry
I know I made a mess of things
Showed a side of myself I wish you'd never seen
And I'm sorry, so sorry

For the lies that I told you
The times that I'd hold you down
While I was out there flying free
For making you hate me and making you wait
While i spilled my love out on the street

But I'm here
And I know that I've gotta change
No more looking down on you, baby
No more running away
I'm here
And I wanna make it good again
But before I can tell you that I love you
I just gotta say
I'm sorry

All those nights you lay in bed
And wondered if your man was dead
I'm sorry, so sorry
I'm gonna make it all up to you
I'm gonna shout it from the tallest roof
I'm sorry, so sorry

I know that you doubt me
You know all about me and how
I used to lie about everything
But now that I'm back
I can promise you that
I'll be better to you than I've ever been

I'm here
And I know that I've gotta change
No more looking down on you, baby
No more running away
I'm here
And I wanna make it good again
But before I can tell you that I love you
I just gotta say
I'm sorry
