Track Name: Down The Street
Just walking down the street, walking down the street
Looking at my feet, looking at my feet I don't know, know where to go.

Someone told me where to find you, I've been searching all my life.
And these worries that I carry, have made me grow wary.
I need you to make it alright.

I need you to make it right, need to make it right.
Make it right tonight, make it right tonight.

You're so sweet when you're talking to me
I'm gonna love you all the time.
You're so fine and I'm going to make you mine
Tonight girl you're all mine.

Looking really fine, looking really fine.
Going to make you mine, going to make you mine tonight.

Just walking down the street, walking down the street
Looking at our feet, looking at our feet we don't know, know where to go.
Track Name: Walking Over My Grave
I spent the winter in Havana.
I drank my money in Atlanta.
I know I can't live if i don't see you today.
I know it never works but I know I'd never hurt
If we could find each other again another way.

When you're walking over my grave
And you find there's nothing to say
Just walk on by No don't you cry
Just walk away.

Well it's the only way I've known, they tell me
And I've always been that way so
However you want me to be I will pray but you know
I can't change.
You say our love is a hometown parade
That the fighting is just a charade
And that my drinking and thinking is driving you insane.

And the only way i knew it was good
Between me and you
To tell the earth from the moon
Was your body for my own
Wrapped inside my arms
I worshipped all your charms
But now it's gone and I am long gone.

You know I've been running away
But the exits they all look the same.
Haven't you needed the freedom of losing your past?
My letters will never reach your eyes
For you know that they were only lies.
Haven't you needed
The freedom of losing your past?
Track Name: Steamboat
Steamboat, steamboat
Take me home tonight.
For there's a girl that I want to hold tight.
She's waiting for me at the pier.
It feels like I've been waiting for years.

Steamboat, steamboat
Don't slow down around the river bend.
Tell the captain the moon will light
Our way again.
Pulling up to the dock just around eleven
O'clock.

Same girl different town, she's always moving around.
Where ever she is
That's where I'm found, that's where you'll find me.
I'll buy my tickets at the station
I'm tired of chasing you
Every night a new destination
And off we go to the sweetest girl I know
Chug-a long chug-a long

Steamboat, steamboat
Won't you hurry along the way
I see the morning climbing the sky
The moon is changing in time
And our eyes are speaking in rhyme.
Track Name: Phone Syndrome
The phone syndrome has got me down.
Yeah the phone syndrome's got me down.
I spend my time all around town
Just to end up here at the lost and found
The phone syndrome's got me down.

You saw me sitting alone.
Yeah you saw me sitting alone.
You walked up to me with your pretty eyes
Said, 'You're not sleeping alone tonight.'
So I followed you to your home.

Why won't you answer your phone?
Why won't you answer that phone?
Throw away your reasons why.
I want to let you know I won't be denied
So i stood all night outside your home.

I called you when i was alone.
I wanted to not be alone.
I forgot what i do not need
No love is more than just lust and greed
So I forgot the way to your home.
Track Name: Sally Sue
Oh, Miss Sally Sue
Won't you come back soon?
I'm looking forward to that.
Track Name: Getting Over Your Love
Getting over your love
Getting over your sweet love

I try so hard
To make you stay
But it's even harder when you're pushing me away.

Getting over your heart
Getting over your cold heart.

But don't, don't you leave
Because you're all I want and all I need.
Track Name: Lovinman
I just need one cloud to cover the sun.
I walked a mile in your shoes
Like you said
I crossed the sahara wishing
I was dead
I don't know if i can do it
I don't know if I can
But I'm going to love you baby
I'm your lovin man.

I just need one drink to save my life.
Send me your whiskey and your
Bourbon too.
I will stumble my way back
Home to you.
I don't know if I can do it
I don't know If i can
But I'm going to love you baby
I'm your lovnin man

I just need one word to pick me up.
I just need your words to pick me up.
I read your letters smelt your
Sweet perfume
We are going to make love
In your living room
I don't know if I can do it
I don't know if I can
But I'm going to love you baby
I'm your lovin man.

I'm just one step outside your door.
I walked a mile in your shoes
Like you said
I found no other place to
Rest my head.
I don't know if i can do it
I don't know if I can
But I'm going to love you baby
I'm your lovin man.
Track Name: Needing You
Get gone, get strong
Get long gone
I don't even want to see your face around my door.
Get back, get slack
Mean as a heart attack
I don't even need you anymore.
You're the sweetest girl in town
But when he comes around
I say no way, no sir
How could I have ever loved her?
He says nice shoes, nice hat
Talking to me like I don't know
Where it's at
Couldn't you have found another?

I would die for this love of mine
But I'm so blind
to the truth
That she belongs with you.

You're so high heel, high brow
Know exactly what to feel
I should have turned around
When I saw you shufflin down easy street.
I knew how the sun burned
Every time I learned the way
Your body curved.
You're so high heel, high brow
Know exactly what to feel
Your love is like a sarin gas cloud
But I knew how the sun burned
Every time you turned to
Anything with two feet and a heartbeat

When I want you in the night
When I want you to hold me tight
When I want you and your charms
When I want you in my arms
All I got to do is dream
I want you so I could die
I need you so and that is why
All i got to do is dream
My life away
Track Name: Honey Beware
Honey Beware of your heart
And where it may lead you
Because you've been down
That road before and you know
There's no hope for you.

If you stay with him
You know he's going to hurt you
The man will desert you
Call me on the phone
I'm drinkin alone, waiting.

Honey you don't realize
He's got sugar in his lies
And you don't know what he's up to
Do you?
Just the other night I saw him
With his arms around someone new

Some people say I'll never learn
Hopelessly waiting for your return
I put my hands together
And I pray that things get better someday
But tonight I'll be forgetting
All the words that I said today.
Track Name: (Her)Father was a Bastard
Don't you think it's about time
Honey you opened up your eyes
Time is money
I don't mean to brag
My life's a drag without you

Oh no the world is spinning faster
And i thought I heard you say
Your father was a bastard
I don't mean to brag
My life's a drag without you.
Oh no It's getting harder.

Don't you break my heart
Don't you mess around
Don't you do it to me babe

Don't you think it's about time
You opened up your eyes
You're thinking too much
You know that it's just a disguise
To get yourself through the shit like anybody else.

Oh no I never thought it was wrong
To open up your heart and sing a song
I know you're trying.
I know you're trying but you can't get by.
Oh no it's getting harder.

Oh but I will die trying
Come on honey time is money
You know honey time is money.
Don't you break my heart.
Track Name: Love Emergency
Well it's two-thirty in the afternoon
I need to feel your love I need to feel it soon
Can you come, can you give me some?

I know it's good to anticipate
But girl you're going to kill me if you make me wait
So come on, let's get it on.

Oh one, two, three four five
The motion of emotion keeping me alive
It's okay to be afraid of things you haven't tried
But you know (I'll keep you satisfied!!)
Oh one, two, one to three
Oh I know, you know, we know you're coming home with me
'Cause I have got a love emergency

Well give me a whiskey and give me a beer
Get me loaded up and get me out of here
I ain't got no time to lose

Kiss me once, kiss me on the face
Give me just a little taste
Of what you've got in store to cure my blues

Oh one, two, three four five
The motion of emotion keeping me alive
It's okay to be afraid of things you haven't tried
But you know (I'll keep you satisfied!!)
Oh one, two, one to three
Oh I know, you know, we know you're coming home with me
'Cause I have got a love emergency

Well I'm sitting here on a Saturday night
Trying to figure out whether I was wrong or right
Now you're gone, you ain't coming home, oh no

Well all the things I said were true
I'll never love a girl the way that I love you
But I'm tired and I don't want to sleep alone

Grab my hat, grab my guitar
Make my way downtown to a music bar
And grab myself the prettiest girl I find
Cause there's one thing you don't under stand
I'm a man in demand and I don't give a damn
'Cause as soon as you're out of sight
You're out of mind!

Well give me a whiskey and give me a beer
Get me loaded up and get me out of here
I ain't got no time to lose
Track Name: Hammer Fell
Runnin around
Reload and shoot'em down
Don't nobody worry about me
I got a few tricks up my sleeve
I chased the devil
As he chased me
Chased me right up my family tree
To my chagrin and my surprise
I was standing right in front
Of my Father's eyes.
I went for the pistol hanging off my waist
Starring down the barrel at an empty face
So Long, I screamed as the hammer fell
When no bullets came out
I ran like hell

I ran to the only place I knew
And some man was sleeping with you.
Oh no.

I hid in the shadows of your bedroom
Every time he was breathing
You were breathing too
So I raised my gun up above my head
And beat him till your sheets turned red
You looked surprised
At what I had done
So I handed you the bloody gun
Oh God, you screamed as the hammer fell
When no bullets came out
I ran like hell

I ran to the station and I fell into a train
And my head was spinning with pain.

I laid myself down
In the old caboose
Woke up to the sound
Of the wheels shakin loose
The sparks burnt the air
and lit the silhouette
Of the train disappearin' through the sunset
I ran from the wreckage
Ran down the track
I could feel the devil breathing down my back
So i split for the woods and came to a tree
With a sing rope swinging silently
I went for the pistol hanging of my waist
Starring down the barrel into empty space
So Long, I screamed as the hammer fell

Don't Lord, don't forget about me, oh Lord.
Runnin around, one shot sound laid me down.
So Long, I screamed as the Hammer fell
Track Name: The End To...
Wouldn't it be much easier
If we could see the life we led
Many years from now when
We're laying down
Just trying to go to bed
I would fix my wrongs
And finish so many songs
That just got stuck in my head
And we would learn to love
Before we were dead.

Sometimes it's too much
Somebody always feels rushed
You got a heart of stone
But nobody can try
To get through harder than I
No, I would break my bones
Only to find that I have wasted time
And I've ended up back home
Sometimes feeling loved
Is like feeling alone

But I want nobody but you.
And I love nobody but you.

I know it's hard to forget
What an unfaithful wreck
I have been.
To say that I'm yours
With my clothes on the floor
And my head full of gin
Your back's been turned
And I've been starting to learn
That the only way back in
Is to let you let me love you again.

I mean when I say
That I'm done with those days
I'll put an end to
All the words that come out
That fill your heart with doubt
I'll put an end to
