    Daddy's Little Girl

    You’re first heartbreak may be the worst. 

    This pain is real Baby, I know that it hurts.

     

    Your heart is precious. A wonder of my world. 

    I’ll protect it with my life cuz you’re Daddy’s Little Girl.

     

    May I never let you down when it matters most.

    May you always feel secure and that this is home.

    When you rest your head at night, know that dreams come true.

    And I hope you believe, cuz I believe in you.

     

    A truth of this world is that pain is real.

    No one escapes it but Love can heal.

    Your spirit is priceless; a gem of my world.

    Invaluable to me cuz you’re Daddy’s Little Girl.

    Somebody Call 911

    Somebody call 911. My little kitty is a on the run.

    Over that fence up  a tree.

    Reaching for the sun. Running from me.

    Somebody call 911. My little kitty is on the run.

     

    Oh pretty baby I feel oh so bad.

    I’ve gone and made you feel oh so sad.

    But I am what I am; I do what I do.

    I’m sorry if it weighed so heavy on you.

    Somebody call 911. My little kitty is on the run.

     

    Bark like a dog, howl like a wolf.

    I don’t seem to live the way you think I should.

    But I still sleep good at night.

    I got Rock & Roll music to hold me tight.

    So you can cancel that call to 911. My little kitty can run run run.

    Heartaches, Time Takes

     

    Heartaches. Time Takes. And now you can’t go back and you can’t go home.

    Heartaches. Time breaks; your will but you still march on forward.

     

    I know it can be a hard hard road. I know because I’ve often walked it alone.

    But since you made it clear; through thick & thin you’d always be here;

    I’m clearing a space alongside my own.

     

    Heartaches. Time takes. The things you can’t get back once they’re gone.

    Heartaches. Time breaks. Your will but you still march on forward.

     

    I ain’t got much but I’ve got the world if I’ve got you.

    You heart is gold and your love is my truth.

    And since you made it clear; not matter what you’ll always be here;

    I’m saving a space for you by my own.

    Rattlesnake Song

    It’s a rattlesnake baby, I feel it in my bones.

    It’s a rattlesnake baby, it’s got me by my soul.

    It’s a rattlesnake baby, Chicano Rock & Roll.

     

    It’s an attitude. A restless heart. Won’t settle for less than a fair start.

    Got our minds made up. We’re ready to fight.

    We ain’t scared to rumble. We know what’s right.

     

    It’s a rattlesnake baby, I feel it in my bones.

    It’s a rattlesnake baby, it’s got me by my soul.

    It’s a rattlesnake baby, they call Rock & Roll.

     

    There’s many faces to a feel. Our intentions are good Baby. Love ideal.

    We won’t back down. We’ll stand up tall.

    All for one and one for all.

     

    It’s a rattlesnake baby, I feel it in my bones.

    It’s a rattlesnake baby, it’s got me by my soul.

    It’s a rattlesnake baby, Chicano Rock & Roll.

     

    All the sounds are welcomed here. All love and no fear.

    This Rock & Roll is here to stay.

    Valid then as it is today.

    My First Last Beer

    I woke up this morning at the crack of noon. The bottle was a callin’. It couldn’t make me true.

    But then you found your way into my broken heart. 

    So I cracked my first last beer and now I’m ready to stop.

     

    When I rolled in a little late, I found I had no job. “You’re wasting away” said my next last boss.

    But now I gotta cure the pain and chase away the fear.

    So just one more time for my first last beer.

     

    My first last beer, to mend a broken heart. It’s how I got here if I admit or not.

    So just one more Dear. I promise to leave it here.

    Right after this Baby, I promise to start on my first last beer.

     

    I’ve found my posture is best on this old bar stool. 

    Every time she comes to visit, she only finds a fool. 

    She used to try and drag me away, “But just one more Love”

    It’s what I used to say but now she’s stopped showing up.

     

    I know lie to myself but my bottle tells me I’m wrong.

    “All you need is me” she says, meanwhile everything’s gone.

    So now I gotta cure the pain and chase away the fear.

    So just one last time for my first last beer.

    My Place (Orale Vato)

    Y’awl ready to have good time tonight?

    Maybe dance a few tunes, have a few drinks? Try not to fight!

    The joints really jumpin’ and the ladies are damn fine.

    And the rhythm section’s swingin’ and the beat is a right on time.

     

    So let’s go. Let’s go. To My Place tonight.

    Orale vato! No empieces chingasos. Estas barracho. Orale vato.

    Let’s go. Let’s go. To My Place tonight!

     

    So maybe some chingasos went down in the alley out back.

    Too much tequila , the wrong señorita, and knife and it all went black.

    But inside the party’s still bumpin’. The music there ain’t no stoppin’.

    Boney Maroney’s got her best dress on and she ain’t too fat.

     

    So let’s go. Let’s go. To My Place tonight.

    Orale vato! No empieces chingasos. Estas barracho. Orale vato.

    Let’s go. Let’s go. To My Place tonight!

    I Lean

    I lean; into you to stand.

    I lean; on you to be a man.

    Eileen, when my heart is sad, you give me love like I’ve never had.

     

    Baby I’ve walked a million miles your way.

    Baby I’ve walked a million miles to say.

    Baby I’ve walked a million miles and now my feet are starting to howl.
    Baby, I’m home. Here. With you. To stay.

     

    So I lean; into you to stand.

    I lean; on you to be a man.

    Eileen, when my heart is sad, you give me love like I’ve never had.

     

    Well now stop. Let me catch my breath

    I ain’t through yet.

    I lean. Lean on you for air.

    And you give good lovin’ like I never had.

     

    So I lean; into you to stand.

    I lean; on you to be a man.

    Eileen, when my heart is sad, you give me love like I’ve never had.

    Lonesome Road

    The highway miles keep adding up; with the lonesome tears I’ve cried for you.

    I miss your sweet loving touch; and I know that you do too.


    I wish I could turn this rig around; full throttle till I get to you.

    But the highway to your heart is closed; and the detour’s pointing to a honky tonk down South.

     

    So farewell to you Baby. Maybe someday we can meet again.

    Cuz this Honky Tonk Music is calling my name.

    And me and Lonesome have become good friends.

    Got to go. Ooh Baby I’ve got to go. Got to go on down that old Lonesome Road.

     

    I know that being home with you, I’d be comfortable.

    But I just don’t fit that suit; and I hate to have to cover my tattoos.

     

    So farewell to you Baby. Maybe someday we can meet again.

    Cuz this Rock & Roll Music is calling my name.

    And me and Lonesome have become good friends.

    Got to go. Ooh Baby I’ve got to go. Got to go on down that old Lonesome Road.

    My Letter to My Girls

    It’s not a given truth because it’s labeled “The News”

    Not everyone in charge is a lookin’ out for you.

    We hold our own keys in our own hands. Our minds. Our thoughts. The reasons we stand.

    Philosophy and morals make the man.

     

    The high road is the tough road, but the views are outta this world.

    Standing strong requires more strength but your heart; your soul; it can’t be faked.

    This is my letter to my girls

     

    The world is at your feet. 

    Understand that thoughts become things.

    Feel with your heart and think with your brain; understanding is not a weakening.

    Say what you mean. Mean what you say. Know that Love’s supply renews each day.

    Let philosophy and morals lead your way.

    Ruckus

    Maybe there’s another way to get where you wanna go.

    But I’d rather take the blame and stick to my moral code.

    Baby, that’s alright. I’ll take the hits. And stick to my guns when I feel what’s right.

    Hold my ground I’m prepared to fight. 

    I’ll raise my Ruckus strong with her head held high.

     

    Don’t be scared of another day. Welcome your new unknown.

    Sometimes it won’t go your way. Don’t compromise your old soul.

    Baby that’s alright; you can take the hits.

    Stick to your guns when you feel what’s right. Hold your ground it’s OK to fight.

    I’ve raised my Ruckus strong with her head held high.

     

    You can take it all away. Say what you need to say. 

    You don’t need no steppin’ stones to reach your heights.

    When the dead weights fall aside, you’ll be left with your strength and pride.

    I’m proud of you Ruckus. Damn. What a ride!

     

    If there was another way; you still got where you needed to go.

    Accepting all your blame, you stuck to your moral code.

    Baby, that’s alright; you made the hits.

    You stuck to your guns when you thought it was right. 

    You held your ground you were ready to fight.

    Our Ruckus grew up strong with her head held high!

    Won't Die Alone

    Long time coming Baby, I’m glad I made it home.

    Fuzzy white lines through the lonesome cold.

     

    Steam engine burning that black black black black coal.

    Runnin’  through the night, Red Eye won’t you take me home.

     

    Baby I’m home where the bond is strong.

    And I feel like gold resting in your arms.

    We’ll never die alone with a bond this strong.

    All roads lead home to my baby’s arms.

     

    For so long I’ve been away. 

    Took a wrong turn got lost down a long one way.

     

    Saw that shining light; didn’t know it was my way.

    But when that white line cleared, my baby was waiting for me.

  • 02:27 Lyrics
    No Hook

    I ain’t gonna sing no song about ya.

    I deserve a life without ya.

    Ain’t gonna be on my mind no more.

    I just got to let you go.

    So despite what you may think Baby. It’s not you. Girl, it’s me.

     

    I feel like a million bucks in my dime store threads.

    I’d rather chase “Free” than live dead.

    Dirt in my hair, grease in my nails.

    If I don’t live my own way than I have failed.

    So despite what you may think Baby. Ah girl, it’s not you . It’s me.

     

    There’s no hook to this song I sing.

    I made my catch and now I gotta release.

    I don’t wanna take you home with me.

    That’s why there’s no hook to this song I sing.

    I deserve a life without you so if I wanna be happy I gots to do without ya.

     

    So goodbye. Adios. Sayonara.

    Time's Running Out On You

    Time is a runnin’ out on you. Time knows that you been running too.

    Ain’t no place to hide from the truth.

    Time is a running out on you.

     

    The two of you ain’t never met. What you don’t know you can’t forget.

    The ride you took for free done up and left.

    The two of you ain’t never met.

     

    And it’s a long long walk to nowhere. Direction ain’t your friend.

    You keep making the same mistakes. Over and over again.

     

    Now you don’t what to do. What’s false or what’s true.

    All the chances you had you done used.

    And still you don’t know what to do.

     

    Revolutions go round and round. Sometimes the lost are never found.

    Pack your bags and head on outta town.

    Revolutions go round and round.

     

    And it’s a long long walk to nowhere. Direction ain’t your friend.

    You keep making the same mistakes. Over and over again.

     

    And now your soul’s been worn paper thin. It’s evident on your face.

    Your expression gives it all. Gives it all away.

    Your tomorrow was yesterday.

     

    And it’s a long long walk to nowhere. Direction ain’t your friend.

    You keep making the same mistakes. Over and over again.

     

    And now your soul’s been worn paper thin. It’s evident on your face.

    Your expression gives it all. Gives it all away.

    Your tomorrow was yesterday.

    Sorry it had to end this way.

    Sometimes you don’t get another day.

    You'll Never Have to Change Your Name Again

    Well, you’ll never have to change your name again.

    And you’ll never have to question your best friend.

    No looking over your shoulder, just keep on straight ahead.

    You’re gonna keep your last name until the end.

     

    Well I know you been hurt and feelin’ used.

    And I know the time it takes to heal those wounds.

    The sun came up tomorrow. Tomorrow’s gonna come again.

    We’re gonna honor our vows just like we said.

     

    Well, you’ll never have to change your name again.

    And you’ll never have to question your best friend.

    No looking over your shoulder, just keep on straight ahead.

    You’re gonna keep your last name until the end.

     

    And you’ll never have to change your name again.

    You can rest your tired feet and not run to death.

    No more looking over your shoulder, the man ain’t checkin’ you in.

    You can keep your last name until the end.

     

    You made your mistakes and now you’ve changed your views.

    Figured what’s what and who’s who.

    The sun came up tomorrow, tomorrow’s gonna’ come again.

    You found yourself a place to settle in.

     

    And you’ll never have to change your name again.

    You can rest your tired feet and not run to death.

    No more looking over your shoulder, the hounds ain’t chasing you again.

    You can keep your last name until the end.

NOTES
The new album from Ameripolitan artist Adam Lopez & His Rhythm Review! A collection of 14 new original songs that run the gamut of American roots styles. From Rockabilly to Rhythm & Blues. Honky Tonk to Rock & Roll. While their take on the various styles starts with an old school approach, the music itself is very much modern music that is relevant now and potentially timeless. Great rhythms, hooks, soulful vocals, and Telecaster style guitar slinging are all …

    Take These Chains (From My Whiskey)

    I sense a breakdown coming and I just spilled whiskey on my shirt. 
    This is the last time I serve my heart up to you to hurt. 
    And now my whiskey bottle's running dry, and I no longer believe you when you cry. 
    Well we've played these games one too many times before. 

    And now you're trying to lead me down that road. 
    Where your true intentions, they show. 
    You got me right back where you want me to be. 
    I was blind, but now I see. 
    And you ain't gonna be playing these games with me. 
    And I ain't gonna be playing your blind man no more. 

    And I tried before to let you go. 
    But I just can't let you alone. 
    My patience and my wallet, they're running thin. 
    And now the cost of whiskey's going up. 
    The more I deal with you, the more I need to get drunk. 
    But that ain't no way for neither of us to live.

    Little Things

    You make me smile when you say those little things. 
    You make me smile when you got me in your ways. 
    And there's nothing I wouldn't do to stay in your grace. 

    I'll sing to you every morning when you awake. 
    I'll sing to you every morning, every night, and every day. 
    Just come back home where you belong and share your little things. 

    Little things Baby. 
    It's all those little things that made me fall in 
    love with you. 

    Little things Baby. You got your little things Baby. It's all those little things that keep me loving you. 

    I'll wait for you if that's just what it takes. 
    True love is worth all these heartaches. 
    Cause those little things, they go a long way.
