Band Of Heathens, The - Had It All Lyrics




Take for granted nothing taken back
Having everything is all you lack
A thousand mornings end in one goodnight
You said you would be here but you have taken flight

One foundation starts to crack in two
You don't feel the mountain when it moves
A thousand stones blend into the sand
Rings on your fingers when all you need's a hand

You had it all and threw it away
Staring at the ceiling from a bed
You had it all and threw it away
Home is more than a place to lay your head

Losing everything you hold so dear
Finding out that nothing else compares
To a thousand storms with someone by your side
Now when the sun shines, rains coming down inside

You had it all and threw it away
Staring at the ceiling from a bed
You had it all and threw it away
Home is more than a place to lay your head

Open up a treasure chest
Rip a heart out, make a mess
Open up a treasure chest
Rip a heart out, make a mess

    FendergtrJam

    A friend printed me out two sheets of music paper while out jamming... One was Simple Man by Lynard Skynard and Hurricane by Band of Heathens witch I never heard of Band of Heathens before He said you can sing both of them so I took the sheet music home just a couple weeks ago and like you said your abcessed with this Band I have listened to there You Tube Videos so much because I feel the pressure is on me now because New Years Eve bringing my guitar over and going to play Both song's "Wish me Luck" 😕😂

  14. Matthew Smith

    If you ain't sipping rum or moonshine as this plays you doing it wrong

  15. Claudette S

    I saw these guys on a Monday night in a local venue. One of the loudest, best shows I've ever been to. So clean! Thank you fellas!

  16. Richard Risley

    Good performance, but it has way less energy than the album version

  17. Dale Smith

    Greatness...it gave me goosebumps.

  18. Marco Fernandes

    hello! laine could choose a playlist of favourite songs !!!!

  19. Tennessee Patriot

    ♥️ NOLA xoxo

  20. LSU Wreckin Shop

    Now theres a crazy concept 5 talented guys that can actually sing and play instruments (NO MACHINES OR COMPUTERS).It's sad this is almost extinct in music today.
    Great performance!!!!!

  21. Charles Self

    Fuck american idol

  22. Scott Damn!

    The arrangement on this is pretty terrible. Doesn't capture the spirit of this song at all. Totally contrived cover.

  23. David Wilson

    Dont think they would survive a hurricane without rescue squad

  24. Joseph B

    just moved to Louisiana and this is one of the first songs I hear... Damn it's good

  25. Marie Sultana Robinson

    Nice job on an old Leon Everette song! Beautiful harmonies!

  26. Mike Billingsley

    awesome tune! Living in New Orleans, LA this song gets you right in the heart! Geaux Saints!!!

  27. Bad Driver

    "Where's Laine"? Gimme Laine!!

  28. Daniel Landry

    I love this song but your timing is wayyyyyy off

  29. Eric Boyles

    Brings a lot of memory of when me and a good friend would ride down there each year to visit his, and now my kin.

  30. Leon LaRocca

    Please let laine cover this on his first full album.

  31. Jey Kent

    Laine Hardy brought me here!!!!

  32. Ruby

    Great song, guys.

  33. Kimberly Koester

    Well I'll say it again, I'm here listening to this awesome song because of Laine Hardy! I hope he wins AI and will continue to listen to this band and type of music!!

  34. Shawn

    Im sorry but once Laine Hardy has sang your song....it’s just better

  35. Danielle Rogers

    My favorite band. Love y'all got some air time finally. Here's to paying those bills!!

  36. Charlie Tucker

    Much confusion here about this song. It is NOT Band of Heathens song. This is a cover version. Levon Helm recorded the song in 1980 and Leon Everette had a huge country hit with it in 1981. It is a great song written long ago by Thom Schuyler, Keith Stegall, and Stewart Harris.

  38. Smucko1

    Just discovered this band, thanks to Laine Hardy, they have some great tunes, downloaded a few. However, I much prefer Laine's version of Hurricane! Can't beat Laine's voice. :)

  43. Mike J

    From all commercial divers....bring the rain bitches

  45. Scott Clarke

    Andrew Garfield lookalike

  46. William Hackler

  47. Gootecks' Rose

  48. pucrob

  49. Diane Branning

    Thirty miles on the Gulf Stream
    I hear the south wind moan
    The bridges getting lower
    The shrimp boats coming home
    The old man down in the Quarter
    Slowly turns his head
    Takes a sip from his whiskey bottle
    And this is what he said
    I was born in the rain on the Pontchartrain
    Underneath the Louisiana moon
    I don't mind the strain of a hurricane
    They come around every June
    The high black water, a devil's daughter
    She's hard, she's cold and she's mean
    But nobody taught her, it takes a lot of water
    To wash away New Orleans
    Man came down from Chicago
    He gonna set that levee right
    He says, "it needs to be at least three feet higher
    It won't make it through the night"
    But the old man down in the Quarter
    He said "don't you listen to that boy
    The water be down by the morning
    And he'll be back to Illinois"
    I was born in the rain on the Pontchartrain
    Underneath the Louisiana moon
    I don't mind the strain of a hurricane
    They come around every June
    The high black water, a devil's daughter
    She's hard, she's cold and she's mean
    But nobody taught her, it takes a lot of water
    To wash away New Orleans
    Thirty miles on the Gulf Stream
    I hear the South wind moan
    Bridges getting lower
    The shrimp boats coming home
    The old man down in the Quarter
    Slowly turns his head
    Takes a drink from his whiskey bottle
    And this is what he said
    I was born in the rain on the Pontchartrain
    Underneath the Louisiana moon
    I don't mind the strain of a hurricane
    They come around every June
    High black water, a devil's daughter
    She's hard, she's cold and she's mean
    But nobody taught her, it takes a lot of water
    To wash away New Orleans
    I was born in the rain on the Pontchartrain
    Underneath the Louisiana moon
    I don't mind the strain of a hurricane
    They come around every June
    The high black water, a devil's daughter
    She's hard, she's cold and she's mean
    But nobody taught her, it takes a lot of water
    To wash away New Orleans
    Nobody taught her, it takes a lot of water
    To wash away New Orleans

  82. Sharon Anderson

    I absolutely fell in love with Band of Heathens. My 6 year old grandson turned me on to this song singing it with a microphone. I had never heard of them and went home and pulled up their music. Been listening to them every since!

  83. Brendan Carter

    This is what I would call modern outlaw country. Im more of a rock guy. I love shinedown, rise against, avenged sevenfold and stuff like that but I can’t get enough of this type of music.

  84. Arpad Deli

    'Glad to see some troops playin' a song about the "DEEP SOUTH" ... yer' toes are we when ya' listen!!! I know.. I was born there!! skybill

    Arpad Deli

  85. The Dixie Line Band

    i know this is a really shameless plug but if you have some free time you should take a look the cover of this on my channel, again i apologize im just trying to get heard. thank you

    Silver Fan

    Shells, your cover is not bad but you do have a lot of work to do, not a knock, just keep practicing. This song is not meant to be song solo, it's the harmony's that make it unique.

  86. Christy Noel

    This is sexy as hell!

  87. Din Bach

    Gang gang.

  88. Frank Beitz
