lyrics m-z
macon, georgia county line
oh where, oh where were you last night?
looked for you at the county fair
you were nowhere
you were nowhere
and i looked for you on the macon, georgia county line
and sheriffs badges flashed behind

oh where, oh where were you last night?
looked for you at the county fair
you were nowhere
you were nowhere
and i looked for you on the macon, georgia county line
and sheriffs badges flashed behind

oh where, oh where were you, my dear
looked for you almost everywhere
but you were nowhere
you were nowhere
and i looked for you on the macon, georgia county line
and sheriffs badges flashed behind

matrimony  tab
well, i'm saving this dress for my wedding day
momma wouldn't have it any other way
she says when she married, her waist was twenty three
i guess i'll never wear it anyway

i don't believe i care to marry
though i cannot explain exactly why
it somehow seems to me that matrimony is misery
simply a faster way to die

i'm saving all my money for my wedding day
you know my momma wouldn't have it any other way
she says when she married, she didn't have a dime
but i guess i'll spend that money some other way

because i don't believe i care to marry
though i cannot explain exactly why
it somehow seems to me that matrimony is misery
simply a faster way to die

well, i'm saving my best thing for my wedding day
because my poppa wouldn't have it any other way
he says if i lose it early, i'll have thrown my life away
but i swear i'll use my cherry my own way

i don't believe i care to marry
though i cannot explain exactly why
it somehow seems to me that matrimony is misery
simply a faster way to die.

me and my ticket
i picked up my ticket just the other day
didn't have much money, but i found a way

they'll open up the doors for you
sometimes when you don’t want them to
ah, but you’ll go in
but you’ll go in.

found my seat was empty, right next to the man
who’d been sitting there since time began
talkin’ to himself between the thoughts come to him since then
and that’s when he went in
that’s when he went in

i miss the feelings that i get
when i had the time to sit and just do nothing
just do nothing
do nothing
just do nothing

i miss the feelings that i get
when i had the time to sit and just do nothing
just do nothing.

memories
memories of you
that i just don't have right now
i'll make them up
one cup of wanting you
two cups of hoping somehow
these things come true
while i'm staring at pictures of you
while i'm staring at pictures of you

yearning
longing
making up memories of you
making up memories of you
for now.. your picture will do

dialing you up in my sleep when the nights wearing thin
won't make it right
my reasons to want to
and 100 reasons to lie
when i don't want to
while i'm staring at pictures of you
while i'm staring at pictures of you

yearning
longing
making up memories of you
making up memories of you
for now.. your picture will do

memphis
all the railroad lights shine on the city
full moon shall pass in twilight
in the oldest oak tree by the neighboring factories
forever rising steel beams in twilight.

in the overpass view with the traffic lights hanging
by threads like ornaments
so did you have your last drink?
did you raise it up to me
just to spite me not being there with you?

drunk fucked up like a twilight
drunk fucked up like
drunk like a twilight out tonight

so when the bar closes down it does murder to the city
dirty and peaceful and mean
and for the record i'd stand right here on the corner
waiting for justice to bring you here to me.

drunk fucked up like a twilight
drunk fucked up like
drunk like a twilight out tonight.
 
midway park  tab
ride with you tonight, i'll ride forever
there's no way to predict this kind of weather
ashes fall to earth, words are severed
feathers turn to weighted iron pillars

midway park
streetlights shine on a hood that is dark
down on the graves
where we'll lie. we'll lie. we'll lie.

think of you tonight, i'll think forever
there's no way to predict this kind of weather
ashes fall to earth, words are severed
feathers turn to broken beads and pillars

midway park
streetlights shine on a hood that is dark
down on the graves
we'll lie. where we'll lie. we'll lie.

don't tell the truth, we'll lie
just lie.
don't tell the truth
just lie.

mining town   tab
said you came from a mining town
but they closed the mining down
said your daddy was a drinker
he had a picture of jesus on his sinker

maybe i... maybe i'm coming for you tonight
this town's only five miles wide
look everywhere there's a road sign
on tops and places to hide
and cops sit around hungry
waitin to dine

maybe i... maybe i'm coming for you tonight
maybe i... maybe i'm coming for you tonight

said you came from a mining town
they closed the mining down
said your momma was a drinker
she had a picture of jesus on her sink and
maybe i... maybe i'm coming for you tonight
maybe i... maybe i'm coming for you tonight
maybe i........ baby, i'm coming for you tonight.

mirror, mirror      tab
mirror, mirror
up on the wall in the back of her room
as i walk down the hall in the house where we stayed
tell me something about what i saw in the face of a man
who once felt it all but feels nothing today

knock knock
who's there
i don't know
i can't say
ask me tomorrow
i'll tell you again

oooo i'm tellin you now
i'm tellin you now
oooo i'm tellin you now
i'm tellin you now

trouble trouble
down in my hood where it's well understood
where they love when you're bad
and they hate when you're good
tell me something about who we are at the end of the day
when our souls become one but our lives separate
 
monday night
i was a bad idea on a saturday night.
rolled through your fingers and i made you uptight.
little boy blue with my lazer on stun-
couldn't dodge the bullets from your infared gun.

all i want is to roll through your fingers, baby.
all i need is to make it all right.
all i want is to be your connection
win your affection, be your reflection
on a monday night,
on a monday night.

i was the last thing left of an afternoon round,
dressing up for trouble at the lost and found
try to live forever every day of the year
give me something before they kick us outta here.

(chorus)

any other time, you want me as cool
everybody look- i'm the fool.
i can let you in if you can let me lie
being your connection, winning your affection
on a monday night,
on a monday night.

oh man, i wish i could talk to you.
oh man, i wish that i wanted to.

(chorus)
 
my heart is broken
my heart is broken
my love is gone
i live without you
your pillow cold
i am forsaken
i can't go on
my heart is broken
my love is gone

if i hadn't cheated
while you were gone
the well that we'd
been drinkin from
wouldn't a dried
and turned cold

my days are empty
my nights are long
five cups of coffee
for the years gone wrong

if i hadn't cheated
while you were gone
the well that we'd
been drinkin from
wouldn't a dried
and turned cold

my days are empty
my nights are long
my heart is broken
my love is gone
my love is gone

my winding wheel
well night time let her through
yeah i'm talking to you
wanna see her
precious little thing
with eyes that dance around
without their clothes
so buy a pretty dress
wear it out tonight
for anyone you think
could outdo me
oh better still
be my winding wheel

cause i feel just like a map
without a single place to go of interest
and i'm further north and south
if i could shut my mouth
she'd probably like this
so buy a pretty dress
wear it out tonight
for all the boys who think
could outdo me
oh better still
be my winding wheel
be my winding wheel

well the children laugh and sing
a song that ushers in her driving rain
and i'm standing in the station
like some old record waiting
on a train
so buy a pretty dress
wear it out tonight
for anyone you think
could outdo me
oh better still
be my winding wheel
be my winding wheel
be my winding wheel

nervous breakdown
i'm about to have a nervous breakdown
my head really hurts
if i don't get the hell outta here
i'm gonna go berserk, cause
i'm crazy and i'm hurt
head on my shoulders
i'm going berserk

always talk the same old talk
the same old lies
you see the way i am
you stop anytime you can, cause
i'm crazy and i’m hurt
head on my shoulders
i'm going berserk

i'm crazy and i'm hurt
head on my shoulders
i'm going berserk

new york, new york
well, i shuffled through the city on the 4th of july
i had a firecracker waiting to blow
breakin' like a rocket who was makin' its way
to the cities of mexico
lived in an apartment out on avenue a
i had a tar hut on the corner of 10th
had myself a lover who was finer than gold
but i've been broken up and busted up since

and love don't play any games with me, anymore
like she did before
the world won't wait, so i better shake
that thing right out there through the door
hell, i still love you, new york

found myself a picture that would fit in the folds
of my wallet and it stayed pretty good
still amazed i didn't lose it on the roof of the place
when i was drunk and i was thinking of you
everyday the children they were singing their tunes
out on the streets and you could hear from inside
used to take the subway up to houston and 3rd
i would wait for you and i'd try to hide

and love won't play any games with me, anymore
if you don't won't it to
the world won't wait and i watched you shake
but honey, i don't blame you
hell, i still love you new york

i remember christmas in the blistering cold
in a church on the upper west side
babe, i stood there singing, i was holding your arm
you were holding my trust like a child
found a lot of trouble out on avenue b
but i tried to keep the overhead low
farewell to the city and the love of my life
at least we left before we had to go

and love won't play any games with me, anymore
if you don't want em to
so we better shake this this thing out the door
i'll always be thinkin' of you
i'll always love you though, new york
i'll always love you though, new york
new york, new york.

nighttime gals     tab
most of the women that i know
are mostly nighttime gals.
hang their head down on the bar,
cause of the guy before.

silver and gold
still must mean something
to people with nothing.
does it mean anything to you?

most the people that i know
are mostly nighttime folks.
dry their clothes out on the tub
next to the paycheck stub

silver and gold
still must mean something
to people with nothing.
does it mean anything to you?

nobody girl
well, the night makes moves
and it shatters like broken glass
better play it cool... better let it pass
have you been screening your smokes?
and whispers in an all night bar
better off as the fool
than the owner of that kind of heart

they don't know you anyway
they don't know you and they don't watch you walk away
just a nobody girl
with a radar to the scene
when the emptiness finds you
you find all the nubmers you need
say you follow your heart
well, honey you're just being lost
say you follow your gut
well, how much would it cost?

they don't know you anway
they don't know you
and they don't watch you walk away

you're nobody, girl
you're nobody, girl

you're a nobody, girl

the night plays games
and the people they come and go
well, they trade in their pieces
for a late-night ride on your rodeo
if your horses could talk,
i wonder if they would complain
i know you're rested and ready
they've been going nowhere for days

they don't know you anway
they don't know you,
they dont even mind the weight

nobody, girl
you're nobody, girl
nobody, girl

not home anymore     tab
i slept in our room
and i swore
and i slept with our ghosts
painting the walls
and our happiness hung there
like a mistake or a light
truly you are gone
{ghosts painting the walls}
wandering helplessly now
we are we are
you, you are gone
you, you are gone
you, you're gone
you, you're gone
you're gone

i left all the lights on
in our old room
to pretend that you and i were home
{waiting up somewhere for your boy}
{i'm not home}
i left all the lights on
{i'm not home. anymore}
you are still waiting up for me in our old room?
{you're not home anymore}

you, you are gone
yeah you, you are gone
yeah you, you are gone
yeah you, you're gone
you're gone

no love in the ghosts that we are
no love ever lost we are
still waiting up somewhere you are

you, you are gone
yeah you, you are gone
yeah you, you are gone
yeah you, you are gone
yeah you, you are gone

it used to mean a lot, mean a lot to me
now it doesn't mean it doesn't mean a thing
it used to mean a lot, mean a lot to me
now it doesn't mean, doesn't mean a thing
and i pretend that it meant a lot to me
but it never meant, never meant a thing
used to mean a lot, mean a lot to me.
now it doesn't mean...
doesn't mean anything.

nursery lie
lie. lie. lie.
why do you always lie?
stick a needle in the sky
lie. lie. lie.

ooh. ooh. ooh.
i've seen what you mean to do
it's monkey me, and monkey you.
ooh. ooh. ooh.

cry. cry. cry.
now i'm alone to cry.
cross my heart, i hope i die.
cry. cry. cry.

my. my, oh my.
you are the devil inside.
i know you are, but what am i?
my. my, oh my.

this time, i'll write the rhyme
and i'll make it more genuine
they say kids in school are cruel
those fools, they never met you.

cry. cry. cry.
i'm all alone to cry.
but cross my heart, i hope i die.
cry. cry. cry.
cry. cry. cry.
 
oh my sweet carolina
well i went down to houston
and i stopped in san antone
i passed up the station
for the bus
was trying to find me something
but i wasn't sure just what
i ended up with pockets
full of dust.

so i went on to cleveland
and ended up insane
bought a borrowed suit
and learned to dance
i was spending money
like the way it likes to rain
man i ended up with pockets
full of cain.

oh my sweet carolina
what compels me to go
oh my sweet disposition
may you one day carry me home.

i ain't never been to vegas
but i gambled up my life
building news print boats
i raced in sewer mains
i'm trying to find me something
but i wasn't sure just what
funny how they say that
some things never change.

oh my sweet carolina
what compels me to go
oh my sweet disposition
may you one day carry me home.

up here in the city
it feels like things are closin' in
the sunset's just my light bulb burnin' out
i miss kentucky
and i miss my family
all the sweetest winds
they blow across the south.

oh my sweet carolina
what compels me to go
oh my sweet disposition
may you one day carry me home
may you one day carry me home.
 
oh my sweet valentine
oh my sweet valentine
guess i know you well
left my old better half
to be all by myself

though i don't have long i know
i'll just let my loving show
cause there ain't nothing like a petal in a rain storm
no there ain't nothing like a petal in a rain storm
oh there ain't nothing like a petal in a rain storm
love won't keep you warm my dear.

we're never far from home
that place where we all go
now i can't wait to get there sometimes
sometimes it's such fun to be alive

oh my sweet serenade
guess we tore it up
night time sang our song
until we gave it up

though i don't have long i know
i'll just let my loving show
cause there ain't nothing like a petal in a rain storm
no there ain't nothing like a petal in a rain storm
no there ain't nothing like a petal in a rain storm
love won't keep you warm my dear...

we're never far from home
that place where we all go
now i can't wait to get there sometimes
sometimes it's such fun to be alive.

onslow county
onslow county
is the land of track housing
when they ask you "can i help you?"
it's "no sir, i'm browsing"

there ain't never any any money
to buy no one a present
it was her birthday, you just tell her
"hell, i love you. here's a cigarette."
and all the bars are burning
and they're making it with cash-ins
i guess underneath the worry
oh, everybody's laughing

onslow county
it's covered by some pine trees
and the people go out fishing
and they dirty up their blue jeans

and there ain't never any money

"hell, i love you here's a cigarette."
and all the bars are burning.
and they're making it with cash-ins
i guess underneath the worry
oh everybody's laughing

out of time

from that far inside
what it really means
you're running out of time
you're running out of time

? you're looking now, i've changed my mind
pushed me out when i fell off the line
yeah, i fell off the line

paper moon
i go walking under a paper moon
all the birds are singing
singing you a pretty tune
all the constellations and all the stars above
they all start to whistling
they start singing along

the world is not a monster
and i'm not scared at all
floating through your heavens
the world is in my arms

oh rainy day
don't follow me
cause i'm her baby doll
and she's my cup of tea

i go walking under a paper moon
and my eyes are made of crystals
plastic flowers bloom
all the leaves are changing
and the skies are blue
all the seasons of distraction
can't take the smile god's given you

the world is but a monster
and i'm not scared at all
i'm floating through the heavens
the world is in my arms

oh rainy day
don't follow me
cause i'm her baby doll
she's my cup of tea

love takes care of love
hate just burns you out

pawn shop ain't no place for a wedding ring
six months from now, what will that money mean?
you shop around looking for memories
somehow satisfaction don't come that easy
it's a shame you weren't satisfied with me
you're the saddest thing i've ever seen.

rays of burnin' light
wind blows cold from the east on the sea straits
you checked me into your arms back then
i'll take you, you'll take me, we'll kill your enemies
we'll leave em lying dead on the street

lyin' in the rays, rays of burnin' light
simple way… (?)
driving rays, driving rays, driving rays
rays of burnin' light

wind blows cold from the southeast so shut your mouth
i never call you out anymore
i'll take you, you’ll take me, we'll kill your enemies

reason to lie
i get so tired of missing you
i get so tired of wanting to
compared to things that are easy to do
like the reasons you lie to me
the reasons i lie to you

and i wish you were some kinda explosive device
that only you could diffuse
reasons you lie to me
reasons i lie to you

wanna live in a beautiful house
somewhere up in the hills
with some people making fun of us
you refer to with your two cares
then it wouldn't be somebody else
that you'd grow accustomed to
reasons to lie to me
is a reason to lie to you

i get so tired of missing you
i get so tired of wanting to
compare the things that are easy to do
like the reasons you lie to me
reasons i lie to you
 
return of the grievous angel
won't you scratch my itch sweet annie rich
and welcome me back to town
come out on your porch or i'll step into your parlour
and i'll show you how it all went down

out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
and a good saloon in every single town

and i remember something you once told me
and i'll be damned if it did not come true
twenty thousand roads i went down, down, down
and they all lead me straight back home to you

'cause i headed west to grow up with the country
across those prairies with the waves of grain
and i saw my devil, and i saw my deep blue sea
and i thought about a calico bonnet from cheyenne to tennesee

we flew straight across that river bridge, last night
half past two
the switchman wave his lantern goodbye and good day as we
went roling through
billboards and truckstops pass by the grievous angel
and now i know just what i have to do

and the man on the radio won't leave me alone
he wants to take my money for something that i've never been shown
and i saw my devil, and i saw my deep blue see
and i thought about a calico bonnet from cheyenne to tennesee

the news i could bring i met up with the king
on his head an amphetamine crown
he talked about unbuckling that old bible belt
and lighted out for some desert town
out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
and a good saloon in every single town

and i remember something you once told me
and i'll be damned if it did not come true
twenty thousand roads i went down, down, down
and they all lead me straight back home to you

twenty thousand roads i went down, down, down
and they all lead me straight back home to you

revenge
what ever happened to you, you're trashed
and i'm still wrong
i know you wanted to stay so long
and i'm still wrong

and there were no secrets, there were no stories,
there was no one around
and there were no reasons, there was no questions,
there is no point now

what ever happened to you, you're trashed
and i'm still wrong
i know you wanted to stay so long
and i'll all wrong

so tell me a secret, did you want to see me pull my guns?
so tell me a secret, there were no stories, nobody won

i'll give you a reason, i'll wage your war,
pull the punch from your face (?)
i'll stand my guard, i'll give you a reason,
you might see it, you might hate it,
you might never know your name

so tell me a secret, did you want to see me pull my guns?
(reason, tell me one more lie)
so tell me a secret, stole all your punches in the eye (?)
tell me a secret, wage your war, stole all your punches (?)
tell me a secret, how does it feel to be so old?
how does it feel to be so old?
to see her cry?

rosemary moore
take out your hearing aid and let's go have a drink
you won't have to hear about what i might think.
if he didn't die happy, at least he didn't die poor
you're still kind of pretty, mrs rosemary moore.
what are you still cryin' for?
i think you're free now, rosemary moore.

funeral wasted your tears
cared and cried all of these years
everyone believes this is terribly bad
rosie, you don't have to play sad.

put on a pretty dress and we'll go out on the town
you dance a lot better without him weighin' you down
rosie, i've got your car keys, you can still find the door
you can drive if you want to, mrs rosemary moore.
stop leaving tears on the floor
you're alone now, rosemary moore.

cheap cigarettes and coffee and cards
yard sales and broken down cars
everyone believes this is terribly bad
rosie, you don't have to play sad.

take out your hearing aid and we'll go have a drink
you won't have to listen to what i might think.
if he didn't die happy, at least he didn't die poor.
you're still kind of pretty, mrs rosemary moore
and stop leaving tears on the floor
i think you're free now, rosemary moore.

silver wings
silver wings shining in the sunlight
roaring engines headed somewhere in flight
they're taking you away
leaving me lonely
silver wings slowly fading out of sight

silver wings shining in the sunlight
roaring engines headed somewhere in flight
they're taking you away
leaving me lonely
silver wings slowly fading out of sight

don't leave me i cry
don't take that airplane ride
but you lock me outta your mind
left me standing here behind

silver wings shining in the sunlight
roaring engines headed somewhere in flight
they're taking you away
leaving me lonely
silver wings slowly fading out of sight

slowly fading out of sight

slowly fading out of sight

words and music by merle haggard*

sit and listen to the rain
sit around, dream away the place i'm from
used to feel so much, now i just feel numb
could go out tonight, but i ain't sure what for
call a friend or two i don't know anymore

sit and listen to the rain
sit and listen to the rain

gonna ride down to the river where it runs
gonna watch tv and pray for decent reruns
sit around and dream away what i've become
used to feel so much, now i just feel dumb

sit and listen to the rain
sit and listen to the rain

i'll never understand this emptiness
i'll never really try to understand, i guess
i'll never understand this emptiness
i'll never really try and understand,
try and understand, i guess

sit around, dream away the place i'm from
used to feel so much, now i just feel dumb
could go out tonight, but i ain’t sure what for
call a friend or two i don’t know anymore

sit and listen to the rain
sit and listen to the rain
 
sittin' around

wonderin' what i should do
got nighttime comin' from the down the street

and i can't think of anything
anything to say to you
and i bet if you could wish for anything
i bet you'd want me to
yeah, you'd want me to

well, i've been sittin' around and mendin' things
threadin' the needle, stroke through the spool
and i've been sittin' around pretendin' things
pretendin' things were cool

and i can't think of anything
anything to say to you
and i bet if you could wish for anything
i bet you'd want me to
yeah, you'd want me to

well, i've been sittin' around and wonderin'
wonderin' what i should do
got daytime comin' from the down the street
my nighttime's turnin' blue
 
somebody remembers the rose
somebody remembers the rose
while the other forgets how it grows
would all the dangers
would all the dangers of love
am i still a stranger?

somebody remembers the dress
how it was handsome
beautifully pressed
would all the dangers
would all the dangers of love
lost to a stranger

honey i'm out of service
for a while
damaged heart's been manufactured
and everyday this one never works anyway

somebody remembers the rose
while the other forgets how it grows
would all the dangers
would all the dangers of love
lost to a stranger

honey, i know you
baby, i know you
yeah, i know you
 
somehow, someday
i want to tell you something
that i shoud've, long ago
i wish that you and i had those kids
maybe bought us that home
i wish that we were still in your room
in your bed and you were holding me
'cause there ain't no way i'll ever stop from lovin' you now
there ain't no way i'll ever stop from lovin' you now
no, there ain't no way and i'm gonna try and show you somehow
somehow, someday

i dreamt that you and i were still young
laughing like little kids
i'll neverknow just how bad it hurt
or what i did
i wish that we were stumbling fast
down on irving and 6th
i wish we were still making plans
but now, there's nothing to fix
but there ain't no way i'll ever stop from lovin' you now

there ain't no way i'll ever stop from lovin' you now
no, there ain't no way and i'm gonna try and show you somehow
somehow and oh, someday
someday... someday
ah honey, someday

sorry
you are a gnarled pear tree
near an oak that binds your better roots.
beneath its living branches
your fingers bend and ache with rotting fruit.

i'm sorry... sorry... sorry for my shade
uprooted to protect you.
i'm sorry... sorry... sorry for my shade
what a stick figure i have made.

you are a bitter brother in the shadow of its kin
strangled in her warm embrace.
you have grown up savage, mean and thin.

i'm sorry...sorry...sorry for my arms
i have tried to protect you.
sorry...sorry... sorry for my arms
i have darkened all of your charms.

you are a jack-o-lantern
woke up on a bitter winter morn
your skin is soft and sallow
your short season has not come and gone.

i'm sorry...sorry...i'm sorry for the time
your ruined face....some reflection of love

i'm sorry...sorry... i'm sorry for the time
your ruined face...a perfect mirror of life.

sweet lil gal
fair haired gal
you got a sister that's mean
hanging around cigarette machine
when i'm lonely
she makes me feel nice
when i'm lonely
she makes me feel nice

steals my shirt
makes me hurt
in the field where my plane went down
in the field where my plane went down
sweet lil gal
sweet lil gal

everything's go when she comes to me
lay there for days
on the floor with my pains
when you're lonely
she makes you feel nice
when you're lonely
she makes you feel nice

steals my shirt
23rd and 1st
in the field where my plane went down
in the field where my plane went down
sweet lil gal

sylvia plath
i wish i had a sylvia plath
busted tooth and a smile
and cigarette ashes in her drink
the kind that goes out and then sleeps for a week
the kind that goes out on her
to give me a reason, for well, i dunno

and maybe she'd take me to france
or maybe to spain and she'd ask me to dance
in a mansion on the top of a hill
she'd ash on the carpets
and slip me a pill
then she'd get pretty loaded on gin
and maybe she'd give me a bath
how i wish i had a sylvia plath

and she and i would sleep on a boat
and swim in the sea without clothes
with rain falling fast on the sea
while she was swimming away, she'd be winking at me
telling me it would all be okay
out on the horizon and fading away
and i'd swim to the boat and i'd laugh
i gotta get me a sylvia plath

and maybe she'd take me to france
or maybe to spain and she'd ask me to dance
in a mansion on the top of a hill
she'd ash on the carpets
and slip me a pill
then she'd get pretty loaded on gin
and maybe she'd give me a bath
how i wish i had a sylvia plath
i wish i had a sylvia plath

take your guns to town
on the eastern highway we ride
windshield wipers disperse the rain from the sky
what's left is ivy and vine

all the letters i'd sent back home
never express the idea of how a young man
can be so far from home

take your guns to town
don't take your guns to town
take your guns to town
don't take your guns to town

stumble down main street alone
just gotten home with my hand on the phone
i was drinking alone on the quilted

take your guns to town
don't take your guns to town
take your guns to town
don't take your guns to town

tearin' me up inside
i went out today
and i was lookin' at the people on the street
they weren't threatenin' to me
and i was noticin' how it was kinda sweet
well, i've been changin' a lot
and how i think maybe if i could find a way
to fall back in love with the world
i’d end up forgivin' us eventually

cause i never lived anywhere but in my head
think that my eyes might have hidden instead
ask me to forgive us for the things that we did
and i do, and i did
but the sun comes out and i hide
from whatever it is that's been tearin' me up inside

but you weren't out today
you just lyin' there and starin' at the sheets
that's not threatenin' to you
and, baby, just take something so you can get some sleep
i know it's been changin' you a lot
if there was a chance that you could ever find a way
to fall back in love with the world
you could forgive yourself eventually

cause you never lived anywhere but in your head
think that your eyes might have hidden instead
ask me to forgive us for the things that we did
and i do, and i did
but the sun comes out and i hide
from whatever it is that's been tearin' me up inside
inside
inside

tennessee square    tab
red ribbons hang in a tennessee square
old people laughing and singing and dancing down there
i'd like to join them, i got no money to spare
so i sit here and watch from the porch
drinkin whiskey in granddaddy's chair.

ferris wheel lights look like pictures i'd seen in a book somewhere
vacant parking lots across the street remind me i'm going nowhere
i'd like to join 'em, i got no money to spare
so i sit here and i watch from the porch
drinkin whiskey in granddaddy's chair

it's difficult to go on knowing you're out there somewhere
vacant parking lots across the street remind me i'm going nowhere.

the battle    tab
when i am buried don't visit my grave
god cannot save me from the sins i've embraced
pay your respects at that old liquor store
where i won the battle, but i lost the war.

you mine for silver, and i pan for gold
you keep yours hidden, while all my are sold
you tell the truth, and i lie and i barter
and i drink and i cry, and i pass out at night

i've always cheated, though i've never stolen no
i've wanted things that you ain't never thought of
pay your respects to that gamblin' score
where i won the battle, and i lost the war

they always told me when death came my sins would be
cast out forgotten, laid to rest with my body
pay your respects to that old church-house door
where i won the battle, and i lost the war.

the poison and the pain
when he took my hand
how he laid me down
to the darkest nights that i ever found
don't drink his wine for you'll taste his blood
oh the poison and the pain
oh the poison and the pain

then he'll pick you up down in shuffletown
and he'll break the dress of your lover's gown
and he'll break the pearls of your mother's time
oh the poison and the pain
the poison and the pain

with the windows rolled and the darkened pines
with her scriptures learned and psalms memorized
how he took her down and he stole her soul
oh the poison and the pain
the poison and the pain

and how i drank his team from his poisoned well
and my righteous ways i unlearned so well
we'll drink his wine and you'll learn the hell
of the poison and the pain
the poison and the pain
the poison and the pain
 
the rescue blues
everybody wants you to be special
and everybody wants you to be high
they throw you down a rope when you're in trouble, baby
screamin' "save me"
they then charge you with the rescue blues

and everybody wants to see you suffer
they know that you need the pain so much
they throw you up a rope when you're too high
to cruise, baby
lord, you lose lady
then they charge you with the rescue blues

and everybody wants to see you fall
that's why the always love to get you high
and everybody knows you need the pain so much, lady
well, keep in touch, baby
just don't charge me with your rescue blues

the string and the wire
oh sweet tennessee rose all split up into parts
go fetch the string and wire
go fetch the string and wire from the kitchen drawer
and i'll try to mend you up some more

warm, warm wind blow on these here two hands
how they froze up right
they got too numb to _?_
go fetch the string and wire
go fetch the string and wire from the kitchen drawer
and i'll try to mend you up some more

they put poison in the well
made your sister cry and run
so i'm sewin up a blanket spread
to keep the jailhouse warm

so go fetch the string and wire
go fetch the string and wire
and a couple empty cans of tin
so we can hear her cry again

they put powder in the shells of your brother's lonely gun
i'm afraid they don't make string and wire i know that's strong enough
so go fetch my spinnin spool
go fetch my spinnin spool underneath the bed
and i'll sew you up a handkerchief instead
 

theme for a trucker
so you're a trucker
hard driver
mr king of the road
feelin' lonely
drinkin' coffee
she had only ever known
drove a lot today
was it yesterday?
just a memory you know
you can't dilute it
or see to it
roll through it
you head home

there is a motel with a vacancy
there is no possibility
you could drive yourself to ever be
the man you once were

so you're a trucker
hard driver
mr king of the road
feelin' lonely
drinkin' coffee
she was all he'd ever known
drove a lot today
was it yesterday?
it's just a memory you know
you can't see through an old tune
roll through it
and head home

there is a motel with a vacancy
there is no possibility.
but you could drive yourself to ever be
the man you once were.

the rain won't help you when it's over
takes a friend to laugh when it's over
takes a fool to cry when it's over
take the sun...take the sun...
take the sun from the sky then it's over

the rain won't help you when it's over {3x}
the rain can't help you when it's over

our mother dies and it's over
her father dies when it's over
take the sun.... take the sun
wipe the tears from her eyes when it's over

the rain can't help you when it's over {16x}

*words and music by a. escovedo, believable music, bmi.

think about me

sometimes the sun, it comes up on me
sometimes the rain, it tastes so sweet
eyes are blue, underneath, too
every word she says makes me, too

tell me what i'm gonna do
if i should fall in love with you
i don't care what you think about me
i don't care what you think about me

can't smoke in her car, but you can in her room
windows are rolled down and the air is off, too
eyes are blue, underneath, too
every word she says makes me, too

tell me what i'm gonna do
if i should fall in love with you
i don't care what you think about me
i don't care what you think about me

can't smoke in her car, but you can in her room
windows are rolled down and the air is off, too
eyes are blue, underneath, too
every word she says makes me, too

tell me what i'm gonna do
if i should fall in love with you
i don't care what you think about me

tina toledo's street walkin' blues
sweet talkin' johnny push a john quicker than he spit
stret walkin' tin with a crooked crown waitin' for it
there she goes
she born in boston but the amtrak took her away
she lives in brooklyn but she works outta queens in the
black limousines, money in the bank
black limousines, money in the bank
send it home

tina toledo got a kid that lives with her ma
she takes the subway after school, makes up her face, changes clothes
there she goes
she feels the rain coming down on washington square
she gives the cops on the beat a little discount
and then, then, then it's
black limousines, money in the bank
black limousines, money in the bank
send it home

hard on the knees, money in the bag
hard on the knees, money in the bag
send it home for medical school

rock herself to sleep with the rhythm of the rain
beating like the be against the window frame
of her hotel room
rock herself to sleep with the tunes on the dash
don't take no credit cards, she takes cash
says, "money, money, money in the bank
money, money, money in the bank
money, money, money in the bank
money, money, money in the bank

it ain't no easy life but it pays pretty good,
keeps her out of the cold
it ain't no easy life
but it's silver and gold
silver, silver, silver and GOLD

tina toledo's street walkin' blues
street walkin', street walkin' blues

to be the one
well the pills i got
they ask me 'let's go out for awhile'
and the knives up in the kitchen
are all too dull to smile
and the sun, it tries to warn me
'boy those wings are made of wax'
while the things i do kill me
they just tell me to relax.

oh cinderella
all dressed up in all your boots
and all your charms
i'm not the fellow
to protect you
or to keep you from all your harm.

and i don't know which is worse
to wake up and see the sun
or to be the one
be the one that's gone.

and the empty bottle it misses you
and i'm the one that it's talking to
and with you and i just barely strangers
i'm pretty much just left a fool.

damn, don't the streets feel empty though
just wandering around here without you
oh the empty bottle that misses you
and i'm the one that it's talking to.

i don't know which is worse
to wake up and see the sun
or to be the one
be the one that's gone.

to be young
young boy done me bad
went and didja wrong
young boy done me bad
went and didja wrong
and i got high
lord, i got high
now i gotta bone to pick with you
and i'm sure you know it's true

oh one day when you're looking back
you were young, and man you were sad
when you're young, you get sad
when you're young... you get sad
and you get high

young gal done you bad
and i went and didja wrong
young gal, you done me bad
so i went and didja wrong
and i got high
lord, i got high
now you gotta bone to pick with me
but i wish you'd let me be

oh one day when you're looking back
you were young, and man you were sad
when you're young, you get sad
when you're young... you get sad
and you get high
you get high

today
today
today, today is the last day you'll have to suck up again
is that okay?

so anyway, anyway
i thought of something new i should say
i'm not okay

we're all pretty in pink, pretty in red
just go forget every word we said
at least for today
we're all pretty in pink, pretty in blue
sometimes i think that i know me
sometimes i think that i know you
but mostly i'm just afraid

when you face up to him
and you’re face down again
wake up and know you're not okay
oh, honey, wake up and
put on your makeup and
just say goodbye to him today

well, today i saw you
you were out in a crowded room
all you could ? was out of tune
what was i supposed to say

they're all pretty in pink, pretty in red
just go forget every word we said
because it doesn’t matter, anyway

when you face up to him
and you’re face down again
wake up and know you’re not okay
oh, honey, wake up and
put on your makeup and
just say goodbye to him today

today, today's your day
today
today, today, today's your day
today

today
today, today is the last day you'll have to suck up again
is that okay?

we're all pretty in pink, pretty in blue
sometimes i think that i know me
sometimes i think that i know you
mostly i'm just afraid

when you face up to him
and you're face down again
wake up and know you’re not okay
oh, honey, wake up and
put on your makeup and
just say goodbye to him today

today, today's your day

too drunk to dream   tab
can you hear that lonesome moaning?
is that you, or is that me?
my broken heart ain't aching for nothing
that i can't touch or i can't see.
do you hear that lonesome cryin?
thought i'd made it stop its singin'
but my hands lay there on the bottle
and i just drank, 'til my heart would be
too drunk to dream

so baby, you can leave if you wanna
there ain't no drinkin when the bottle is dry
sugar, you can leave if you wanna
i got no more tears to cry.

do you hear that lonesome shuffle
of my feet walking out of the bar?
and i stumble down the same damn streets,
my daddy done stumbled before.

so baby, you can leave if you wanna
all the flowers in your garden have died
baby, i'm gonna have to warn you
i ain't got no more tears to cry.
well sugar, you can leave if you wanna
there ain't no drinkin when the bottle is dry
baby, i'm gonna have to warn you
i ain't got no more tears to cry.
 

top dollar
well i tried to find something
something to hold on to
i thought it was you cause i'm sick and tired
of trying to make something
something out of nothing
i guess since you were bluffing
now i think i'm losing my mind
the pain in my heart
was it worth the price?
the pain in my heart
was it worth the time i wasted on you?
you're giving me the top dollar blues

and i gave you it all, all
all that i could give you
you've taken what i've given
and thrown it all away
like it's nothing
never meant nothing
now i'm left with nothing
what an awful price i've paid
the pain in my heart,
was it worth the price?
the pain in my heart,
was it worth the time i wasted on you?
you're giving me the top dollar blues.

i've bet all my money and that's how it goes
you ran a good race
but you lost just by a nose
it's true.
baby, you're giving me the top dollar blues.
the top dollar blues,
i gave you it all, all
all that i could give you
and the top dollar blues
top dollar blues

touch, feel & lose
i knew i was never gonna talk to you tomorrow
and oh, the birds how they sing
if you were a bird could you sing me a song of sorrow
'cause all i know from you is grief
but i never wanted to be your rolling train

i never wanted to be your dancin' shoes
i just wanted you to love me
i just wanted you to love me
touch, feel & lose
and cry, cry, cry

i thought maybe i could be some kind of shelter
but oh, your storm how it raged
you know your kisses, they like lightnin' and thunder
and your smile is sweet and come down like rain

i never wanted to be your dancin' shoes
i just wanted you to love me
i just wanted you to love me
touch, feel & lose
and cry, cry, cry
i just wanted you to love me, honey
cry, cry, cry

turn around        tab
want to cross
but i don't think i can
it's too weak here
even where i stand
come here darlin'
let me see you hold my hand
so we can mend your broken halo

all i want from you
when, all i want from you
is for you to turn around
turn around

wanted damage
so i damaged it some
we used to have it all
now i just got some
the silence, perfections, mysteries
all easy to fall from your lips
all the while lies were told to me
in shapeless secrets

when all i want from you
all i want from you
is for you to turn around
turn around
turn around
turn around

{can't you surrender to the distance
and the damage still between us
and the walls to the buildings
are the dreams that will keep us}

can't you turn around
can't you turn around
can't you turn around
why can't you turn around?
turn around
turn around
turn around.

waiting to derail

waiting to derail
wanting needing fighting feeling

wanting feeling trying embracing
but you're waiting to derail
waiting. yeah, waiting to derail
you're waiting to derail
yes you're waiting to derail

what makes the world like this
what makes you act like this
standin' in your torn-up dress
speakin' spanish and in english
in your daddy's bar

just up the block from your dad's house
brother's broken chain at rest
linen cloth,
your mother's hands against her chest

out there tearin' up the boys with your sweet eyes
brother's best friends drink the rounds to him and start a fight
just one person, one barstool less tonight
and i try and dismiss what makes the world like this

and she had never touched a boy
least never like this before
flowers at the funeral
reminded her of spring

bulbs that burned out in the sign
that hangs above her daddy’s dive
danced around her like some strange west new york serenade

she speaks in tongues just two drinks in
the static and steam, the tunnels underground collapse
and stranded her ass here
standin' smokin' cigarettes in some torn-up dress
and i'd like to dismiss what makes the world like this

what makes you act like this
standin' in your torn-up dress
speakin' spanish and in english
in your daddy's bar

but i just don't give a damn
you keep telling me you're sorry

you keep telling me you're sorry
well, i'm never gonna listen to a single word you're sayin
i'm never gonna listen to a single word you've been sayin

when the stars go blue
dancin' where the stars go blue
dancin' where the evening fell
dancin' in your wooden shoes
in a wedding gown

dancin' out on 7th street
dancin' through the underground
dancin' little marionette
are you happy now?

where do you go when you're lonely
where do you go when you're blue
where do you go when you're lonely
i'll follow you
when the stars go blue

laughing with your pretty mouth
laughing with your broken eyes
laughing with your lover's tongue
in a lullabye

where do you go when you're lonely
where do you go when you're blue
where do you go when you're lonely
i'll follow you
when the stars go blue
the stars go blue, stars go blue

why do they leave?
oh why do they leave
oh why do they leave
on the day that you needed them the most

simple cards and things
rose colored sunsets
no flowers from me

simple cards and things
rose colored sunsets
no flowers from me

lover why do you leave
lover why do you leave
on the day i want you for me

say, say it aint so
that he will take you tomorrow
and i will sit here today
the worst

simple cards and things
rose colored sunsets
no flowers from me

simple cards and things
rose colored sunsets
curtains for me

lover why do you leave
lover why do you leave
on the day i want you to be the world.

wild flowers
poor girl, no ma
nothing much to speak of but a rough diamond
sleep now and your angels will come, dear
poor matilda
handcuffed to the wheel
and steering wildly
through love's fields, so blindly

forever only takes its toll on some
but, tonight you're sleeping alone without him
tonight you're sleeping alone without him
and everything went up in smoke like widlflowers
wildflowers, dear

poor girl, lonely
shuffles through the parade
of a sleepless circus serenade
hold on, dear

poor girl, no ma
sister steals her a coat
for the windless breezes
sleep now and jesus will come, dear

forever only takes its toll on some
but, tonight you're sleeping alone without him
tonight you're sleeping alone without him
and everything went up in smoke like widlflowers
wildflowers, dear

wither, i'm a flower
whether, i'm a lover
wither, i'm a flower
whether, i'm a lover
wither, i'm a flower

so city is my sister
and country is your brother
learn to lose your battles
cryin' on a shoulder

whether, i'm a lover
wither, i'm a flower
whether, i'm a lover
wither, i'm a flower

wonderwall
today is gonna be the day
that they're gonna throw it back to you
by now you should've somehow
realized what you gotta do
i don't believe that anybody
feels the way i do about you now

backbeat the word was on the street
that the fire in your heart is out
i'm sure you've heard it all before
but you never really had a doubt
i don't believe that anybody feels
the way i do about you now

and all the roads we have to walk along are winding
and all the lights that lead us there are blinding
there are many things that i would
like to say to you
i don't know how

because maybe
you're gonna be the one who saves me?
and after all
you're my wonderwall

today was gonna be the day
but they'll never throw it back to you
by now you should've somehow
realized what you're not to do
i don't believe that anybody
feels the way i do
about you now

and all the roads that lead to you were winding
and all the lights that light the way are blinding
there are many things that i would like to say to you
i don't know how

i said maybe
you're gonna be the one who saves me?
and after all
you're my wonderwall

i said maybe
you're gonna be the one who saves me?
and after an
you're my wonderwall

said maybe
you're gonna be the one that saves me
you're gonna be the one that saves me
you're gonna be the one that saves me

yesterday's news    tab
well traveling to the point
that i can't stop it
get so familiar
never get enough
talk about it all the time
just drop it
damage on your pretty little eyes says it all

i can't stand to be under your wing
i can't fly or sink or swim
it's a lot like falling down
standing up, and i'm falling down
fill my cup til i understand
wait a minute, see the pieces don't fit this time

well, yesterday's news is what i have been reading
see you at the comet and i end up needing
know if you were thinking it could have been
it was nothing it's cause nothing's what you did

i can't stand to be under your wing
i can't fly or sink or swim
it's a lot like falling down
standing up, and i'm falling down
fill my cup til i understand
wait a minute, see the pieces don't fit this time

well i can't stand to be under your wing
i can't fly or sink or swim
it's a lot like falling down
i'm standing up, falling down
fill my cup til i understand
wait a minute, see the pieces don't fit this time
