LIVING LARGE

This tune is a straight up blues/funk song from "On Down the Road" that was completely transformed from a simple acoustic blues song to a very funky, almost rap sounding jam. This tune originally was to be listed at the end of the album but after Wes recorded this one and heard the power behind the song, moved it into song #5 on the list. The song is raw, loud and powerful and represents the idea that you don't have to have everything to be "Living Large".

LYRICS:
Ain't got no job, Ain't got no life
Ain't got no love, Ain't got no wife
Ain't got no cash, Ain't got no car
Ain't got no gas, so won't make it far
Ain't got no heart, Ain't got no brain
Ain't got no nerves, but I've felt the pain
But let it rain, on my head
You will see, I don't get wet

Cos' I'm living large
Ain't doing nobody no harm
Yeah….I'm living large

Ain't got no time, Ain't got no friends
Ain't got no rhymes, Ain't got no ends
Ain't got no house, Ain't got no home
Ain't got no map, so I must roam
Ain't got no cause, Ain't got no war
Ain't got no hope, but I want more
Cos' I got heart and I got soul
And I live my life for Rock N' Roll

Cos' I'm living large
Ain't doing nobody no harm
Yeah….I'm living large

Ain't got no skills, Ain't got no thrills
Ain't got no fear, Ain't got no frills
Ain't got no burden, Ain't got no care
But my heart is hurting, Cos' I paid the fare
But I'll be there and I'll be true
I'll be me, now how about you?
Cos' what you do is what you are
When will you be living large?

Cos' That's living large
Ain't doing nobody no harm
Yeah….That's living large
