Johnny Paycheck performs"I'm The Only Hell My Mama Raised" (sáb, 20 oct 2018)
Johnny Paycheck (born Donald Eugene Lytle; May 31, 1938 – February 19, 2003) was an American country music singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Grand Ole Opry member notable for recording the David Allan Coe song "Take This Job and Shove It". He achieved his greatest success in the 1970s as a force in country music's "Outlaw Movement" popularized by artists Coe, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, and Merle Haggard. In the 1980s, his music career slowed due to drug, alcohol and legal problems. He served a prison sentence in the early 1990s and his declining health effectively ended his career in early 2000.  WIKIPEDIA Johnny Paycheck - I'm The Only Hell (Mama Ever Raised) Lyrics   I can't sell my mama short on loving me I guess that's why she let me go so far Mama try to stopped me short of stealing I guess that's why I had to steal that car   She told me not to smoke it But I did and it took me far away And I turned out to be The only hell my mama ever raised   Well, I rolled into Atlanta, stolen tags and almost out of gas I had to get some money, and lately I'd learned how to get it fast Those neon lights was calling me and somehow I just had to get downtown So I reached into the glove box, another liquor store went down   And I sing 'Precious memories', take me back to the good ol' days Let me hear mama singing, 'Rock of ages' cleft for me She tried to turn me on to Jesus, but I turned on to the devil's ways And I turned out to be the only hell my mama ever raised   When they put them handcuffs on me, Lord how I fought to resist But agent clamped 'em tighter, 'til that metal bit into my wrist They took my belt and my billfold, my fingerprints, and the profile of my face Then they locked away the only hell my mama ever ever raised   And I sing 'Precious memories', take me back to the good ol' days Let me hear mama singing, 'Rock of ages' cleft for me She tried to turn me on to Jesus, but I turned on to the devil's ways And I turned out to be the only hell my mama ever raised She tried to turn me on to Jesus, but I turned on to the devil's ways And I turned out to be the only hell my mama ever raised

Merle Haggard - I'm Always On A Mountain When I Fall   Most of my life I've almost been a winner I've come so close but never really won Just when I thought I finally made it I found myself back where I started from.   I hate to say I'm giving up but I believe Losin's just become a way of life for me Losin' wouldn't be so bad at all But I'm always on a mountain when I fall.   Then you came along and had me had me believing For once in my life my luck had finally changed And now you say you're gonna leave me Seems everything I do winds up the same.   I hate to say I'm giving up but I believe Losin's just become a way of life for me Losin' wouldn't be so bad at all But I'm always on a mountain when I fall.   Losin' wouldn't be so bad at all But I'm always on a mountain when I fall...
