Free Ride in the Fast Lane Lyrics

by Montgomery Gentry

Where I come from in Kentucky
There was an old gray headed man
The day I left he said, Sonny
Well, I know you've got some big plans

Round here we all think you're something
But out there that doesn't mean nothing

There ain't no free ride in the fast lane
For every ounce of pleasure there's a pound of pain
You gotta love it if you play this game
'Cause there ain't no free ride in the fast lane

I made my way to the city
And met a long legged beauty queen
I thought she'd always be with me
But she played me like a slot machine

Soon as I ran out of money
She said you're real cute but honey

There ain't no free ride in the fast lane
For every ounce of pleasure there's a pound of pain
You better love it if you play this game
'Cause there ain't no free ride in the fast lane

Woke up in Dallas this morning with the mg flu again
Another party waiting in Houston with 10,000 of our closest friends
Well, I ain't slowing down and I ain't gonna sleep
Man, 'cause I got a promise to keep baby, come on

One thing in this life is certain
You're either dead or you're hurting

There ain't no free ride in the fast lane
For every ounce of pleasure there's a pound of pain
Hey, you better love it if you play this game
'Cause there ain't no free ride in the fast lane

Jump in and hold on now, 'cause we ain't playing no games
Jump in, sit down, shut up and hold on
Kick them mules and let's get the hell out of here
