1. All Roads 

Love is like a blackbird sleeping on my chest 

Wake me up when I’ve had enough, put me to the test 

See those black wings stretching out to shadow me 

Nothing I can do will stay the sting 

 

My heart rolling to the rhythm of the rail 

My tears falling to the bottom of her well 

As I awaken from my own private hell 

My heart is shaken from its cold prison cell 

Where all roads lead back, back to you 

 

Love is like an anchor weighing down the soul 

Pull it up and there’s no telling where a heart will go 

So don’t leave my love drifting on the sea of time 

Time has never been a friend of mine 

 

My heart rolling to the rhythm of the rail 

My tears falling to the bottom of her well 

As I awaken from my own private hell 

My heart shaken from its cold prison cell 

Where all roads lead back, back to you 

All roads, lead back to you, all roads, lead back to you 

 

And I , I, I , just can’t be free of you 

I, I, I, just can’t be free of you 

 

My heart rolling to the rhythm of the rail 

My tears falling to the bottom of her well 

As I awaken from my own private hell 

My heart is shaken from its cold prison cell 

Where all roads lead back, back to you 

All roads lead back to you, all roads lead back to you 

And I, I, I, just can’t be free of you, free of you. 

 

2. In This House 

In this house, so full of memories of you 

In this house, still smells so sweet of your perfume 

It still lingers all about, don’t leave me lonely, in this house 

 

In this house, the roof still leaks when rain comes down 

In this house, the rain’s not what I care about 

Cause I need you, don’t walk out, don’t leave me lonely, in this house 

 

Don’t leave me lonely in this house, don’t leave me lonely in this house 

 

Listen to my heart, don’t make a sound 

Don’t say you’re leaving, this house full of memories 

Don’t leave me lonely in this house 

Please think about the love and happiness we knew 

In this house, I still see pictures of we two as I carried 

You into this house 

 

Don’t say you’re leaving, this house full of memories 

Don’t leave me lonely in this house 

Don’t leave me lonely in this house 

Don’t leave me lonely in this house….lonely….lonely 

 

3. Lady Love 

Lady love touched my heart 

Left my world falling apart 

She took my hand, I was following 

Showered me with splendid things 

 

And this I know everywhere I go 

I keep on searching for my lady love 

And if some day I find her some way 

I know my days will be just fine 

Be just fine 

 

Lady love took my soul 

Left me standing there with nothing to show 

She held me close then set me free 

And I’ll be drifting till she comes back to me 

 

I hide my tears, my face in my hands 

I cry out loud “Lord tell me where do I stand?” 

So I make a wish to the stars above 

Where can I find my lady love 

Lady Love 

 

Lady Love took my heart 

Left my world falling apart 

 

4. Alright, Okay 

As if my hair and cowboy hat were not enough 

Her Daddy saw that Kerry sticker on my truck 

And he said “That’s one sad looking Cracker Barrel cowboy hat.” 

“But worse that that I see you are a democrat.” 

 

But that’s alright, okay 

I ain’t trying to impress him anyway, alright, okay 

Yeah, that’s alright, okay 

Ain’t falling for his daughter anyway, alright, okay 

 

Her brother was the captain of the football team 

I was the bad boy out with their homecoming queen 

He caught me on the old Winn Dixie parking lot 

All I remember is my blood mixed with my snot 

 

But that’s alright, okay 

I can take a hint, I’ll stay away, alright, okay 

Yeah, that’s alright, okay 

Ain’t falling for his sister anyway, alright, okay 

 

A fourteen month old and another on the way 

Her Daddy tells folks now he thinks I am okay 

My Harley parked out front beside her mini-van 

If we can make it I think anybody can 

 

And that’s alright, okay 

Still falling for her everyday, alright, okay 

Yeah, that’s alright, okay 

I wouldn’t have it any other way, alright, okay 

Yeah, yeah, yeah, alright, okay 

One more time now, I said, alright, okay 

 

5. One Horse Town 

We were just friends when we made love 

Started a landslide I barely rose above 

Just happened one night when the rains came down 

Something to do in this sleepy little one horse town 

 

By candlelight she dried her hair 

Must have been some kind of magic in the air 

She was soaked right through, and so was I 

And she could tell what I was thinking 

When she looked into my eyes 

 

Just one night of magic’s all we knew 

Just one night to last my life through 

 

I was all of eighteen, she was twenty-one 

She finished her year at college and ran off with someone 

And now me I’m just a number on a union card 

Chasing down a dollar and mister that’s getting kinda hard 

 

But I think about her sometime 

When the rain comes down 

Something to do 

Yeah, it’s just something to do 

In this sleepy little one horse town 

 

6. Broken Stones 

Dead of night, cold hard rain 

Beating down my window pane 

Every demon that I thought I tamed 

Echoes now to call my name 

 

There’s a time, coming soon 

Another night, a quarter moon 

Shave the Oak and slowly carve the Runes 

And the past will be renewed 

 

A different man inside of me 

Now and then I seem to be 

 But every time I try to plant that seed 

A cold wind blows it out to sea 

 

And late one night I had a dream 

No one else was there but you and me 

And we waltzed off into our eternity 

This is how I wish that it could be 

 

But I built a wall of broken stones 

A fortress for this heart I own 

Search around in all these scattered bones 

You will find my lonely soul 

 

7. Coyote Soul 

When the moon was bright I held you in my arms 

There I promised you I’ll never do you harm 

So you leaned back and you offered me your throat 

Could not help myself I held the red red rose 

 

Got a coyote soul, Coyote soul 

Got a coyote soul, Coyote soul 

 

So I held you down and made sweet love to you 

Something that you always wanted me to do 

Hold on tightly as the passion rises high 

Higher than that big red moon up in the sky 

 

Got a coyote soul, Coyote soul 

Got a coyote soul, Coyote soul 

 

When the moon was bright and two became as one 

There I promised you that I would never run 

Though I feel a full moon pulling me away 

Wind is howling and those dark clouds race 

 

Got a coyote soul, Coyote soul 

Got a coyote soul, Coyote soul 

 

8. Crazy About You 

Why can’t you be crazy about me 

Like I’m crazy bout you, you’ve got my world in your hands 

Cause I know that you really love me 

Why can’t you be falling for me 

Please help me understand 

 

Cause I’m crazy about you 

The sun sets and rises around you 

I’m crazy about you, I’m crazy about you 

There’s no one else out there like you 

I’m crazy about you 

So why can’t you be crazy about me too 

 

I’ve scattered your pictures around me 

Sending you roses or daisies, I won’t let you forget 

Cause there is a road I must travel 

You say you need someone to hold 

Well, I can’t blame you for that 

 

Still I’m crazy about you 

The sun sets and rises around you 

I’m crazy about you, I’m crazy about you 

There’s no one else out there like you 

I’m crazy about you 

So why can’t you be crazy about me too 

 

I’m crazy about you 

The sun sets and rises around you 

I’m crazy about you, I’m crazy about you 

Nothing’s the same here without you 

I’m crazy about, crazy about you 

So why can’t you be crazy about me too 

 

9. Ghost of a Memory 

This old bar feels so lonely 

On an August afternoon 

One bartender, one TV 

Broken horizontal hold 

But she used to come here long ago 

 

She’s just a ghost 

Ghost of a memory 

She’s just a ghost from way back when 

She’s just a ghost of the lost love I loved most 

A ghost come haunting me again 

 

Push an old song on that jukebox 

Whispered words upon my lips 

Our carved initials on this bar top 

Underneath my fingertips 

God, I hate to start my night like this 

 

When She’s just a ghost 

Ghost of a memory 

She’s just a ghost from way back when 

She’s just a ghost of the lost love I loved most 

A ghost come haunting me again 

She’s just a ghost of the lost love I loved most 

A ghost, come haunting me again and again 

She’s just a ghost come haunting me 

Again….again 

 

10. Raging Heart 

When I was young, yeah just a lad 

The simple joys of life I had 

But time rolls on, this we know 

Passing though and to the soul 

And this river of love I thought I knew 

Became a raging heart 

Raging for you……raging heart, raging heart 

 

A river is like a one way street 

Carries life silently 

Swirling fast and then moving slow 

Taking in, letting go 

And this river of love is always new 

Like my raging heart 

Raging for you……raging heart, raging heart, raging heart 

 

Don’t worry bout the past 

Your time moves by too fast 

They’re just patterns on the bottom 

Of your drinking glass 

 

And this raging heart, it rages on 

In every word and every song 

But I don’t mind because I know 

This raging heart has found a home 

And like the rain runs true to sea 

This raging heart 

Is yours to keep……raging heart, raging heart 

 

11. Money Can’t Buy Love 

Three cars parked outside a three car garage 

I work 12 hours a day but my money’s always gone 

She gets everything she wants, but that’s not enough 

Friends keep telling me, “Boy, your money can’t buy love”. 

 

So if money can’t buy love, what the hell am I thinking of 

I don’t need all this stuff, money can’t buy love 

 

That pool out back is fine but I ain’t getting wet 

I got a big backyard, I ain’t seen it all yet 

Even got a gardener, I think his name is Paul 

Well, I’d ask my wife or kids but they live down at the mall 

 

Money can’t buy love, and it won’t buy happiness 

I don’t need all this mess, money can’t buy love 

 

There was a time ago when I was free 

There were no ball and chain of money wrapped round me 

Think I’ll buy a fishing pole before all my money’s spent 

Checks will start to bounce, before they wonder where I went 

 

Money can’t buy love, and it won’t buy happiness 

I don’t need all this mess, money can’t buy love 

Money can’t buy love, so what the hell am I thinking of 

I don’t need all this stuff, money can’t buy love 

Money can’t buy love, money can’t buy love 

Can’t buy me love, money can’t buy love 

 

12. Look At Me Now 

Little dancer, dance in the sand 

When the morning is blue 

There’s a wind and a wave on the way 

She feels it too 

 

With a wink and her crooked smile 

I feel the fire 

And this girl she fills all my nights with 

With a million desires 

 

And I want her, look at me 

Yes I need her, look at me 

And I want her, look at me 

Look at me now, yea look at me now 

 

Well I made a stand, just to be what I am 

Till the end of my days 

She came along and now I’ll be damned if 

If I haven’t changed 

 

And I want her, look at me 

Yes I need her, look at me 

And I want her, look at me 

Look at me now, yea look at me now 

 

13. Lonesome Pine 

Wanted, dead or alive, that’s what the posters say 

Momma said, “You live by the gun and son you’ll die that way.” 

One dollar bill times ten and that’s what a life will bring 

They brought that bad man in and they sentenced him to swing 

And I watched that bad man swinging when I was only nine 

They hung him from that lonesome pine 

 

Daddy give me a gun one day, an old colt 45 

He said, “Use it only in self defense, never take a life.” 

So I took that rusty gun and I cleaned it up real good 

Learned how to use it well, but only when I should 

But the Momma died in ’59, Daddy not far behind 

We buried them together side by side 

 

Two young men on our own, my brother he went east 

He was shot dead in a peach grove at Shiloh, Tennessee 

And me I took to gambling and fighting most my time 

Learned to make men mad to draw just to shoot em down and watch em die 

Then I shot a man in cold blood for an Ace I tried to hide 

And I swore they won’t take me alive 

 

Wanted, dead or alive, that’s what the posters say 

Momma said “You live by the gun and son you’ll die that way.” 

One dollar bill times ten and that’s what my life will bring 

They caught me in my sleep one night and they sentenced me to swing 

And I watched that crown a-gathering just like when I was nine 

To hang me from that lonesome pine 

 

I shouted, “Boys heed your Mommas, don’t waste your life like mine.” 

“Cause they’ll hang you from that lonesome, lonesome pine.” 

And they hung me from that lonesome pine 

 

14. Shine 

Shine 

Good Lord how you shine 

And I can’t believe you’re mine all mine 

I love the way you shine 

 

Shine

Like a brand new silver dime 

Like that big old harvest moon at night 

I love the way you shine 

 

You were born that way 

I heard the angels say 

They never knew a child to be so fine 

It cuts right to the bone 

It’s shot right through your soul 

You’re the proof of intelligent design 

 

Because you shine 

Good Lord how you shine 

And I can’t believe you’re mine all mine 

I love the way you shine 

Yea, you shine 

Good Lord how you shine 

And I can’t believe you’re mine all mine 

Sure do love the way you shine 

I just love the way you shine 

Sure do love the way you shine 

And you’re shining all the time 

 

15. She Says 

She won’t care if the money’s not there 

She says “I just like being here with you” 

And she won’t mind if we can’t go out sometimes 

She says” I just like being here with you” 

All night long with you, all night long with you 

And that’s what she says 

 

Don’t need our names in the society page 

She says “It’s just a wasted space is all” 

And I must confess, she knows it best 

When she says “If you never stumble you’ll never fall” 

Yet I always fall, every time she calls 

 

She never worries, never complains 

She says “Lets stay inside and listen to the rain” 

 

And she won’t care if the money’s not there 

She says “ I just like being here with you” 

And she won’t mind if we can’t go out sometimes 

She says “ I just like being here with you” 

All night long with you, all night long with you 

And that’s what she says 

That’s what she says 

 

16. Restaurant 

There’s that restaurant where we met 

And that parking lot where we spent 

Our teenage dreams, away they went 

Now they’re just memories like the summer wind 

 

And the more things change, the more they stay the same 

Those good old days get even better when it rains 

And I can’t complain cause I’m still around to say 

That the more things change 

The more I wish they’d stay the same 

 

Now in that restaurant I start my day 

And the waitress there, she knows my name 

But every day just goes by the same 

Sometimes I still, I still see your face 

 

And the more things change, the more they stay the same 

Those good old days get even better when it rains 

And I can’t complain cause I’m still around to say 

That the more things change 

The more I wish they’d stay the same 

 

I hear that restaurant is coming down 

And the waitress there, she’s leaving town 

And I don’t know where, where I’m going now 

But those memories will always be around 

 

And the more things change the more they stay the same 

Those good old days get even better when it starts to rain 

And I can’t complain cause I’m still here to say 

That the more things change, yea the more things change 

I said the more things change, the more I wish they’d stay the same 

 

17. Say Goodnight 

Drink all night and I sleep all day 

I’m not the man that my Daddy raised 

I get so tired of this daily fight 

One more drink, say goodnight 

 

Store by store this old town dies and burns 

It’s just not much of a going concern 

One day they took away the last traffic light 

So lock the doors boys, say goodnight 

 

Everything they say dies in time 

Well this old town died so slow, no one cried 

One year they forgot to put up the Christmas lights 

Guess that’s the year Christmas died 

 

Jimmy Robbins was a boy I knew 

We both played ball in high school 

His name is down at the town square, etched in stone 

Lost in Vietnam long ago 

 

Everything they say dies in time 

Well this old town died so slow, no one cried 

One year they forgot to put out the Christmas lights 

 

Roll up the sidewalks boys, turn around the signs 

Lock all the doors and then we’ll turn out the lights one last time 

And say goodnight 

Yea, say goodnight
