Track Name: When You're Around
I’ll go get my high heels on
I’ll go get my fancy dress, and then we’ll be gone
Maybe we’ll down a few
And dance ‘til dawn
Don’t care what we do babe,
As long as you’re around

Don’t care where we are
It could be Paris or just a local bar
But this I know, this I hold as truth
That everywhere is better when you’re around

Oh so meet me in the garden and we’ll make out
Oh meet me in the subway and we’ll find out
How long it takes to get to the end
And then we’ll do, we’ll do it all again ‘cause
Anything is better when you are around

Oh even the air I breath
And even the I song I sing
Oh even the sun in the sky
Looks different in my eyes
On the mountain
Or valley below
Doesn’t matter where I go
As long as you are around

Oh even the cat and the mouse
Start to get along in this house
And things don’t seem so bad
When I’m with my lad
The sun still shines on a rainy day
When I’m with him things are A-Okay
‘Cause everything
And everywhere
Is better when, you are
You are around
Track Name: If I Could Steal Tomorrow
If I would look for trouble
No trouble I'd find
Out on a sea of danger
Red weather is fine
If I was death to thunder
Six feet under
In a box made of pine
I wouldn't have the heartache of when you were mine

Oh I could forge through valleys a
And not break a sweat
Enter a deal with gamblers
No sense of regret
If I could blow my money
Spend it sonny
Run up a big debt
I wouldn't rue the future if we never met

Were we trying
No denying this
Always wishing
For a little kiss

If I would look for trouble
No trouble I'd find
Out on a sea of danger
Red weather is fine
If I was death to thunder
Six feet under
In a box made of pine
I wouldn't have the heartache of when you were mine

If I could steal tomorrow
No sorrow I’d find
No need to beg or borrow
Or swallow my pride
And I don’t fret the weather
It gets better
With the passing of time
And I wouldn’t have the heartache of when you were mine
Track Name: Take This Heart
When you take this heart then you will know
Cuz when you take my heart you take my soul
And if that’s your goal
Well I’m takin’ role

And if you say “here”
Then I know it is quite clear
That you are for real
About lovin’ me

So lets get to the facts
Lets pick up all the slack
If you wanna turn back
Hit the road jack

Cuz I’m tired of playing games
They’re driving me insane
Too much heartache and pain
for me

And you take this heart
And you make it whole
And you take this heart
And you make it whole
And you take this heart
And you make it whole
And you take this heart
And you make whole

Now you think you’re so cool
With those patent leather shoes
Make those girls go cuckoo
For you

And those hearts ripe for takin’
All those worlds that you’re breakin’
Sayin’ love that you’re makin’
Well that ain’t cool
Cuz when you take my heart
You will know right from the start
That you will always be apart
So don’t mess around

And I can see right
Through your trickery
Don’t mess around with me
Cuz I bite back

And you take this heart
And you make it whole
And you take this heart
And you make it whole
And you take this heart
And you make it whole
And you take this heart
And you make it whole

Now right now it’s a quarter to three
And I’ve been waitin’ patiently
For you to arrive

And I told you son
I ain’t ever held a gun
But if you mess with me
Gonna get me one

Cuz when you take my heart
And when you take my soul
You will know
Cuz you ain’t ever comin’
Ain’t ever comin’ back at all
And when you take my heart
And when you take my soul
You will know
Cuz you ain’t ever comin’
Ain’t ever comin’ back at all

And you take this heart
And you make it whole
And you take this heart
And you make it whole
And you take this heart
And you make it whole
And you take this heart
And you make it whole
And you make it whole
And you make it
Track Name: Beyond The Blue
Lying under water let the air seep out
Like our founding fathers we are filled with doubt about
What happens next
And in out great surroundings we are filled with joy
Still we only know that we are just a girl and boy
In this crazy mess

But I'll make us wings to fly
And out of the sea we'll try

Fish are made for swimmin'
But I was made for livin'
I can't help you see past these limits but I'll try
Lord knows that I'll try
You flew too close once and you got hurt
But what's the point of burnin' if you can't learn to fall
Every now and then

Change is good for the soul
But I can't help you if you say no

I'll carry you beyond the blue if you want me too
Just you and I
Way up high if you want me too

Lying under water let the air seep out
Oh like our founding fathers we are filled with doubt about
What happens next
Track Name: Homemade Shine
Those boys in the boonies
Know how to woo me
When they give me some of that ol’ moon shine
The stuff that we’re drinkin’
What the hell are we thinkin’
Oh but give me some homemade shine and I’ll be fine

So pass that ol’ jug around
It’s that best bar outside of town
It’ll get you drunk and it’ll only cost a dime
Bootleggers and Baptists too
Can’t get enough of this here brew
So take a swig and we’ll have a grand ol’ time

Oh put that copper kettle on
Fillin’ jugs and singin’ songs
Down by the river
In the pale moonlight
I support my local stiller
He says boys go fill her
Up with homemade whiskey when the moon is bright

Chorus

Hickory hickory ash and oak
Straight up hooch, don’t chase with coke
I like it straight and I like strong
I down my corn liquor
It gets me drunk much quicker
Than anything else that comes along

An’ you can give me Jack and you can give me Jim
But I don’t really care for them
Rum and wine just seem like such a crime
When I see the smoke blowin’
I know I best get goin’ and
Get me some of that ol’ moonshine

Chorus
Track Name: Tired Eyes
Oh tired eyes
I’ll sing you lullabies
To feed your hungry soul
To drink slumber’s wine
In fairy land
Where we walk oh hand-in-hand
And rest on the moon that holds us close

Oh my love what ails you?
The stars still do shine
The roses that bloom
Lay kisses on your eyes
Forget-me-knots are tied
The colors rolling in your seamless mind
The sorriest of woes
Lead nowhere

Oh my love what ails you?
The stars still do shine
The roses that bloom
Steal kisses from your eyes
High hopes and memories
If you need me dear
Find the keys and come on home

I hope your dreams
Are filled with romance
Behind those hidden doors
I humbly wait
Behind those hidden doors
I’ll always wait
Track Name: Midnight Snack
Nanny goat is crying in the middle of the night Momma alligator is looking for a bite
Two little goaties went out to play
None came back to see the light of day
And they became a midnight snack
You better watch your back

Yellow eyes, teeth that mauls
Sandy hair, dirty claws
Right there in the trees
He's so stealth, you can't see
The beast is coming for you
And there is nothing you can do

Cause that's the nature of his game
Victimizing and causing pain
He's just trying to get on by
You better say your goodbyes

Long tongue, scaly skin
No arms, venom
You're the meat
You better run
Or a snack you'll become
The beast is coming for you
He'll sink his teeth right into you

And you can run
Oh you can hide
But you'll just be biding time

Billy and Nan where first the list
Next thing you know it is you kids
He'll be back and he'll want some more
Before you know it, he's at your door
So don't be rude
Pop a 'lude
And get in the mood
Cause you are food
Track Name: The Old Man And His Sea
If you’d be my old man
I’d be your sea
If you need love
Take what you need
If you get lost in the dark
I’ll be your light
To guide you thru the night

The winds of change are blowing
i’m caught in the tide
oh i’ll keep on rowing
won’t let love pass me by

If you’d be my old man
I’d be your sea
If you need love
Take what you need
If you get lost in the dark
I’ll be your light
To guide you thru the night

I’ll see you in a dream someday
Track Name: Black River Road
Under your feet
Black river road carries you up the street
Leading somewhere you once known
Never complaining ‘bout the weight of your sorry soul

And miles away
The pavement glistens
as night turns to day
the road always listens
to heart ache and pain
oh black river road
won’t you carry me home

driven’ for hours
thinking in my head
passin’ water towers
what could have been said instead
I’m here alone
Oh black river road
Won’t you carry me home

Eyes gettin’ weary
The road looks rough ahead
So black river road
Won’t you please
Carry me home
Oh black river road
Won’t you carry me home
Track Name: Ain't That Girl
I’ve been sittin’ on the edge of reason
I swallowed my tongue
Oh I committed treason
To my heart

So I ain’t going back
Ain’t going back
That’s for sure
Cause I ain’t that girl anymore

I’ve been workin’ hard
to mind my P&Q’s
I hurt myself just trying
to do right by you

So I ain’t going back
Ain’t going back
No my dear
Cause I ain’t that girl anymore

I’m a rich man’s daughter
And a poor man’s slave
I work real hard
But I don’t get paid
And all those clouds that I gather
Won’t see me to my grave

But I ain’t going down
Ain’t going down
No my dear
Cause I ain’t that girl anymore

Well darlin’ dear
I think it’s clear
That you don’t love me anymore
Cause I ain’t that girl
No I will never be
That same girl
No I ain’t that girl anymore
Track Name: From The City
Lights go down in the city
And nothing seems so pretty
It seems like such a pity
To feel lost
In the city

No reason to feel alone
Come on and make your way home
Cuz it’s been way too long
And you know it’s where you belong

East, North South, and West
My home is still the best
I’ve traveled near and far
By plane and by car
And as I play this old guitar
The stars are calling me home

It’s like a familiar melody
The wind whistlin’ through the trees
You feel the warmth of your family

When you feel lost in the city
And life don’t seem so pretty
Just hum this little ditty
You’ll escape and make your way home
From the city

Don’t be afraid to escape
From the city
Track Name: Listen To Me
Lights go down in the city
And nothing seems so pretty
It seems like such a pity
To feel lost
In the city

No reason to feel alone
Come on and make your way home
Cuz it’s been way too long
And you know it’s where you belong

East, North South, and West
My home is still the best
I’ve traveled near and far
By plane and by car
And as I play this old guitar
The stars are calling me home

It’s like a familiar melody
The wind whistlin’ through the trees
You feel the warmth of your family

When you feel lost in the city
And life don’t seem so pretty
Just hum this little ditty
You’ll escape and make your way home
From the city

Don’t be afraid to escape
From the city
