  • One more night, one more show, four down, eighty-four to go
    This ain't no time for moving slow

    Greenville to Baton Rouge
    I'll call you up when I get through
    The life I live is the life I choose
    Greenville to Baton Rouge

    The shows have sure been great this year
    All eight cylinders all twelve gears
    Call you up when I touch down at the airport in a Louisiana town.

    Street survivors, feeling no pain
    A little more rock, a little less cocaine.
    And don't forget about Stevie Gaines

    Greenville to Baton Rouge
    I'll call you up when I get through
    If it's the last thing that I do
    Greenville to Baton Rouge

    Last night, you should have seen this plane. The right engine shot a twelve foot flame.
    But South Carolina made us glad we came.
    Now we're up in the air again.

    Once we hit Louisiana, baby, I don't care
    Got a brand new airplane waiting for us there
    Give this piece of shit back to Aerosmith.
    Wake me up when we get there.

    The right engine gave a little flash, the pilot panicked and dumped the gas
    Everything is quiet, we're dropping fast.
    When we touch down gonna whup' his ass!

    Greenville to Baton Rouge
    Can't die now got a show to do
    The life I live is the life I choose
    Greenville to Baton Rouge. Writer/s: BRAD MORGAN, EARL HICKS, MIKE COOLEY, PATTERSON HOOD, ROB MALONE

  • Julie from Marquette, MiThese songs always make me wonder how different their/our lives would have been if it never would have happened...I was young, but I remember that terrible day.
