Lyrics verse 1:
SHE USED TO HANG
ON EVERY WORD
THAT ROLLED OFF
MY SILVER TONGUE,
SHE BELIEVED
EVERY SINGLE LINE
IN EVERY SONG
I SUNG.
SHE THOUGHT
THAT I HUNG THE MOON
WHERE I COULD DO NO WRONG,
BUT I CHEATED
AND MISTREATED HER,
NOW LOOK
WHO'S HANGING ON:

Chorus:
DISENCHANTED,
SHE'S DISENCHANTED,
DISENCHANTED WITH ME.
DISENCHANTED,
I TOOK HER FOR GRANTED,
NOW SHE'S DISENCHANTED
WITH ME.

verse 2:
I DIDN'T CALL
WHEN I SAID I WOULD,
WHEN I STAYED LATE
AT NIGHT.
AND I WAS ALWAYS
THE LAST ONE
TO APOLOGIZE
ANYTIME WE HAD A FIGHT.
FORGOTTEN DAYS,
UNOPENED CHAMPAGNE,
THINGS I SHOULD HAVE SAID
I USED TO
REALLY TURN HER ON,
NOW I CAN'T
EVEN TURN HER HEAD.

Chorus:
DISENCHANTED,
SHE'S DISENCHANTED,
DISENCHANTED WITH ME.
DISENCHANTED,
I TOOK HER FOR GRANTED,
NOW SHE'S DISENCHANTED
WITH ME.

Lyrics verse 1:
I REMEMBER
A COUNTRY EVENING
WHEN THE SUN
WAS GOING DOWN,
SITTIN'
ON THE FRONT PORCH
LISTIN'
TO THE SOUNDS.
WHILE MAMA DID THE DISHES,
DADDY ROLLED A SMOKE
FROM A CAN
OF OLD PRINCE ALBERT,
HIS HANDS
AS STRONG AS OAK.
AND THE SOUNDS
OF THE GRAND OL' OPRY
CAME OUT OF RYMAN HALL,
ROY ACUFF PLAYED THE FIDDLE
AND SANG WABASH CANNONBALL,
HANK WILLIAMS WHISPERED
I SAW THE LIGHT,
AND PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
SAT LISTENING
IN THE NIGHT.
Chorus:
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
WE ALL CLOSED OUR EYES,
LISTENED TO THE BAND
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
WE ALL DREAMED
OF RADIO LAND.
verse 2:
THEN WOLFMAN JACK
CAME A HOWLIN'
FROM ACROSS
THE RIO GRAND,
LAYIN' DOWN THE SOUNDS
THAT ALL THE KIDS
COULD UNDERSTAND.
MAMA AND DADDY
WAS SLEEPIN',
BUT THE KIDS
WERE WIDE AWAKE
LISTENIN' TO BILL HALEY
RATTLE, ROLL,
AND SHAKE.
OL' JERRY LEE LEWIS
BANGED ON THE KEYS
AND SCREAMED
GREAT BALLS OF FIRE,
ELVIS CROONED OUT
DON'T BE CRUEL,
THE GIRLS SWOONED
WITH DESIRE.
Chorus:
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
WE ALL CLOSED OUR EYES,
LISTENED TO THE BAND
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
WE ALL DREAMED
OF RADIO LAND.
I REMEMBER
SUMMER EVENINGS,
LATE NIGHT
ROCK AND ROLL,
MILES AND MILES
OF HIGHWAY
WITH JUST MY RADIO.
I REMEMBER A NIGHT
WHEN IT FELT SO RIGHT,
A LOVER'S MOON ABOVE
AND THE SONGS
THEY WERE PLAYIN'
THE NIGHT WE FELL IN LOVE.
Chorus:
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
WE ALL CLOSED OUR EYES,
LISTENED TO THE BAND
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
WE ALL DREAMED
OF RADIO LAND.
WE BOTH CLOSED OUR EYES,
LISTENED TO THE BAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
WE FELL IN LOVE
IN RADIO LAND.
Chorus:
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
WE ALL CLOSED OUR EYES,
LISTENED TO THE BAND
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
WE ALL DREAMED
OF RADIO LAND.
WE STILL CLOSE OUR EYES
AND LISTEN TO THE BAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
OUT IN RADIO LAND,
WE STILL DREAM
IN RADIO LAND.

Lyrics verse 1:
STARIN' AT THE SOUTH END
OF NORTHBOUND CATTLE,
SLAVIN' IN THE SADDLE
ALL DAY,
YOU GOT TO BE
SOME KIND OF
NAT'RAL-BORN FOOL
TO WANT TO LIVE YOUR LIFE
THIS WAY.
WELL, IT CAN'T BE THE COOKIN'
IT SURE AIN'T THE MONEY,
THE DEVIL MADE THE HORSE
THAT I RIDE.
THE DAYS ARE TOO LONG
AND THE NIGHTS ARE TOO SHORT
AND THE BOSS
AIN'T NEVER SATISFIED.
Chorus:
SO WHAT AM I DOING HERE,
LORD?
WHAT AM I DOING HERE?
THERE'S GOT TO BE SOMETHING
BETTER OUT THERE,
SO WHAT AM I DOING HERE?
verse 2:
SOMETIMES I WONDER
IN THE LIGHTNING
AND THE THUNDER
IF A COWBOY'S EVEN GOT A PRAYER,
AND WHY'D YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT
SO HARD DOWN HERE,
WHEN THINGS ARE SO MUCH BETTER
UP THERE?
NOW, THE LORD CALLED HIS ANGELS
ALL AROUND THE THRONE,
SAID, 'BOYS,
I MUST BE WASTIN' MY TIME,
'CAUSE I THOUGHT
I GAVE THE COWBOY
A PRETTY GOOD LIFE
HE'S COMPLAININ'
TILL THE DAY HE DIES.'
Chorus:
SO WHAT AM I DOING HERE,
LORD?
WHAT AM I DOING HERE?
THERE'S GOT TO BE SOMETHING
BETTER OUT THERE,
SO WHAT AM I DOING HERE?
THERE'S GOT TO BE SOMETHING
BETTER OUT THERE,
SO WHAT AM I DOING HERE?
