Track Name: Up Like The Sun, Down Like The Rain
Here I sit again and my only friend is the bottle. And places I’ve gone, and faces I’ve wronged are all I can see. But god only knows which way the wind blows tomorrow. You’re up like the sun and I am the rain that falls to the ground… down, down. Been hanging around town after town and I’ve been lonesome. I no longer pretend it’s beginning to end. It’s all over now. And I can’t recall the last time you called out my name. You’re up like the sun and I am the rain that falls to the ground… down, down. Maybe I had it coming in a matter of time. Maybe there’s no reason, there’s no rhyme. There’s nothing to do but talk loud in smoky bars. And brag all about how I’m better now since we’re apart. But shit hit the fan the minute you walked out the door. You’re up like the sun and I am the rain that falls to the ground… down, down.
Track Name: Whiskey Drinking
Every day is better with the lord. Lord, lord. Each day is getting better with the lord. Lord, lord. Each day is getting better and for him I sing it loud! Each day is getting better with the lord. My love for her grows stronger each and every morn’. My love for her grows stronger each and every morn’. My love for her grows stronger and together we’ll grow older. My love for her grows stronger every morn’. The sky’s always calmer ‘fore the storm, storm, storm. The sky’s always calmer ‘fore the storm, storm, storm. The sky’s always calmer oh god how I miss the rain. The sky’s always calmer ‘fore the storm. I shake off my blues with a song, song, song. I shake off my blues with a song, song, song. I shake off my blues, I got nothing left to lose. So I shake off my blues with a song. The whiskey goes down easier after every pour. The whiskey goes down easier after every pour. My buzz is getting stronger we can laugh a little longer. I’ll have one more drink of whiskey ‘fore I’m done. Every day is better with the lord. Lord, lord. Each day is getting better with the lord. Lord, lord. Each day is getting better and for him I sing it loud! Each day is getting better with the lord.
Track Name: Old Bones
Me and Molly J. fell in love one day, We went looking for a place to call home, We settled on a shack with a porch in the back, And little bitty puppy named Bones. We taught him how to sit and we taught him how to lay, In his little bitty bed in our room, But all he ever did was cry all day, and at night he would howl at the moon. It ain’t right what your doing, It ain’t right what you did, It ain’t right how you’re treating me, And I don’t ever get any sleep at night. Well me and old Molly started fighting all the time, And she ended up moving with a friend, But little did I know there was more to the story, She had ended up with another man. Me and old Bones were in shock and denial, And we never came out of our room, And all we ever did was cry all day, And at night we would howl at the moon. It ain’t right what your doing, It ain’t right what you did, It ain’t right how you’re treating me, And I don’t ever get any sleep at night. Molly and her friend were together for a bit, Until she started missing old Bones, She started coming back around with a wink and a smile, And we never came out of our room. We’re as happy as can be Molly J. and me, And sitting in the middle old Bones, And all we ever do is laugh all day, And at night we howl at the moon. It’s alright what your doing, It’s alright what you did, It’s alright how you’re treating me, And I don’t ever get any sleep at night.
Track Name: Meant
I never meant to leave you lonely I didn’t mean to make you cry. I never meant to be the man I am I didn’t mean to be that guy. But if you take me back I promise you I’ll try. I never meant to do those things I did I didn’t mean to say those words. I never meant to stay out all the night And leave you home unnerved. Oh how the tables turn this life we live is earned. I never meant to waste your kindness I didn’t mean to take your youth. For all the years you wasted on me For all the times I was untrue. Oh how a love grows cold like flowers on a tomb.
Track Name: Carry On
Don’t underestimate your lover. You never know how it’ll end. One day they’re beside you the next day they’re gone. Until we meet again. Cry on, cry on. So celebrate the time. That passes like the wind. Don’t lay and worry for things you can’t change. There’s one life to live. Hooray, hooray. So what’s the point of it all? Do you lay down without a fight? Or build a house from a broken home? There’re miles to go. So carry on.
Track Name: Music Man
I don’t wanna go back home. Ain’t nothing there for me. I wanna stay on the road all day and play all my songs for free. And if I should earn some pay I’ll earn it honestly. And that’s what it takes to stay on the road and play all your songs for free. Make ‘em sing out loud and make ‘em feel it down in their bones. Gotta make ‘em cry, and make ‘em dance like they’re the only one’s that came to your show. And if you heed my advice you might get out alive on the other side. We run from town to town. That’s how we earn our keep. We sing ‘em the songs they wanna hear if they lend us a floor to sleep. Now it’s time to go. There’s places more to see. And that’s what it takes to stay on the road and play all your songs for free. Make ‘em sing out loud and make ‘em feel it down in their bones. Gotta make ‘em cry, and make ‘em dance like they’re the only one’s that came to your show. And if you heed my advice you might get out alive on the other side. Gotta make ‘em see, gotta make ‘em feel. Gotta have some faith to make it real. Gotta pay your dues and bide some time Gotta make it rain, gotta make it shine. Sometimes you’re high. Sometimes you’re low. Gotta ride that train to your grave below. And you will know and you will see. Ain’t nothing in life for free. So sing out loud and make ‘em feel it down in their bones. Gotta make ‘em cry, and make ‘em dance like they’re the only one’s that came to your show. And if you heed my advice you might get out alive on the other side.
Track Name: Nobody Left To Believe
You can’t see the forest from the trees. And there’s nobody left to believe. They took all the honey and killed all the bees. There’s nobody left to believe. They’ll take all you own and ask for more. They’ll use ya up like whore. You’re sinking and swimming the ocean’s a roar. You’re over yer head, now you’re ten miles from shore. You’re drowning! They ask you for more. So sleep with your eyes open wide. They’ll hunt you down in the night. You’re fighting for no one so fight for your life. There’s three on the left hand and four on the right. They’ll find you no matter it’s dark or it’s light. So sleep with your eyes open wide. Don’t give ‘em an inch no take what you can. They can’t take us all if we rise up. We live and we die we love and we lie. We wine and we dine til our time’s up. Our time’s up, we’re right on time. You can’t see the forest from the trees. And there’s nobody left to believe. You’re locked in a room with no windows or keys. They’ll put you in debt and they’ll raise all the fees. You’ll work to the bone for the rest of your days. There’s nobody left to believe.
Track Name: The Way
I’m lonely as a man can be. I’m lonelier than before I ever met that girl. I swear I’m lonelier ever more. Don’t leave me now. Don’t leave me when I ain’t got a dime to my name. I need you more than I can stand. I’m one foot in the grave. Take your time and get it right. Don’t leave me on the shelf. I’m going down faster each and every day And if I wanted your help I’d ask you the way. Don’t leave me hanging on now. Don’t leave me on a thread. Cause all I wanted was a chance. My girl, my girl she’ll build ya high. And then she’ll take you low. I told that girl don’t come around here. I’m one foot out the door. Take your time and get it right. Don’t leave me on the shelf. I’m going down faster each and every day And if I wanted your help I’d ask you the way.
Track Name: Promise Land
I can promise you no secrets. I can promise you more flowers. And I can promise I’ll be here when you come home. I can promise you no crying. I can promise you more laughter. And I can promise you more reasons to come home. There’s a promise land I’m sure of. Where the ocean meets the shore. Where the suffering and heartache are behind us evermore. There’s a train that’s leaving shortly. It’s ahead up at the station. You got a one-way pass from here to Virginia. You got a friend that’s waiting for ya. And a job lined up in Richmond. And I can promise I’ll be here when you come home. There’s a promise land I’m sure of. Where the towers reach the sky. Where you’ll stay in my embrace and I’ll forever be your guy. On a distant shore I see her. She is taking off her apron. And I wonder why she sits there all alone. As I’m waiting for her secret. There’s a cloud over her shoulder And I know there will be floods before the dawn. There’s a promise land I’m sure of. Where the mountains breach the clouds. Where we’ll never be departed from the love that we have found.
Track Name: Ready To Go
Bring me up my friend yeah don’t bring me down. Let’s get out of here now man I’m ready to go. Build me up my friend don’t make me feel small. Just ‘cause I don’t see all the ways that you thought maybe I should believe. I ain’t got your eyes don’t expect that from me. I ain’t got your eyes don’t expect me to see. I can’t explain why my mind it don’t work right. I’m stuck at a red light but I’m ready to go. I don’t know why I have wasted my time here. It must have been ten years. They’ve made me feel empty and helpless and old. but I ain’t got your mind don’t expect me to know. I ain’t got the time for these nine to five schemes. So take back the money ‘cause the money ain’t free. Pick me up my friend yeah don’t put me down. Let’s get out of this town cause I’m ready to go. Pick me up my friend let’s pack up a few things. And cut all the damn strings. That have kept us both running in place for so long. I ain’t got your voice but I’ll still sing the songs. I ain’t got your voice but I’ll still sing along.
