All It Cost Me Was Everything

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

I’ve been high
I’ve been low
I’ve been wound up tighter than a hangman’s rope
I broke hearts
I’ve been burned
Taught a lot of lessons but I never learned
I’ve been good
I’ve been bad
Been the best worst friend that you’ve ever had
I’ve been right
I’ve been wrong
I’m a walkin’ talkin’ livin’ breathin’ country song

Verse

Money can’t buy more than it can
When you ain’t got nothing but something to prove
The price is high for not giving a damn
But when you don’t you ain’t got nothing to lose
It ain’t hard to be a fool like me
All it cost me was everything

I get loose
I get loud
Give a lot of people shit to talk about
I get mad
I get mean
I’m a fire tongued devil with a belly full of gasoline

Money can’t buy more than it can
When you ain’t got nothing but something to prove
The price is high for not giving a damn
But when you don’t you ain’t got nothing to lose
It ain’t hard to be a fool like me
All it cost me was everything
Everything

Money can’t buy more than it can
When you ain’t got nothing but something to prove
The price is high for not giving a damn
But when you don’t you ain’t got nothing to lose
It ain’t hard to be a fool like me
No It ain’t hard to be a fool like me
All it cost me was everything
Cost me everything

Hurt You

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

I hear them talking under their breath
Their lips don’t move but I know what they said
I see them looking me up and down
Hiding their smiles like I’m some kind of clown
They don’t know what you don’t know

Verse

I’m gonna hurt you as much as I can
And watch you cry and die where you stand
I want to hear your tears hit the floor
I’m gonna hurt you
And hurt you some more

I felt the air sucked out of the room
What the hell did you get into
They just assume that I must be blind
Man I wish they could read my mind
Cause they don’t know what you don’t know

I’m gonna walk right up to your friends
I’m gonna tell them about the mess you’re in
You’re gonna watch their jaws hit the floor
I’m gonna hurt you
And hurt you some more

I’m gonna hurt you like you’ve never hurt
I’m gonna drive your name in the dirt
You won the battle but I win the war
I’m gonna hurt you and hurt you
I’m gonna hurt you as much as I can
And watch you cry and die where you stand
I want to hear your tears hit the floor
I’m gonna hurt you
And hurt you some more
I’m gonna hurt you
And hurt you some more

Mercy

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

Strong liquor and an empty glass
And three weeks that kicked my ass
This runnin’ ragged sure is hell on me
I’m nine miles a minute and I’m head-long in it
And she knows she’s in up to her knees

Verse

And she’s patient when she’s had enough
That’s how she shows me love
And she gives me more than she gets from me
Sometimes the whole thing gets me down
It takes more than love to turn around

I have mercy when I need it
That’s one thing I’ll always need
And she knows it
And lord she shows it
She gives me every reason to believe

I have mercy when I need it
And that’s one thing I always need
And she knows it
And lord she shows it
She gives me every reason to believe

And she knows it
And lord she shows it
She gives me every reason to believe

Strong liquor and an empty glass
Three weeks that kicked my ass
This runnin’ ragged sure is hell on me

Feeding The Flames

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

There’s a fire deep inside of my lady that burns just for me
She struck a match on a heart full of gasoline
Sometimes it burns like a candle
Sometimes it’s out of control

Verse

Like on nights when it rains
And she’s pouring champagne
And she calls out my name in the dark
Passionate light and with eyes full of lightening we light up the night with a spark
Feeding the flames of the heart

There’s been loves in the past went from embers to ashes to cold
In the blaze of the dawn we stay going strong in the glow
Sometimes it burns like a candle
Sometimes it’s out of control

Like on nights when it rains
And she’s pouring champagne
And she calls out my name in the dark
Passionate light and with eyes full of lightening we light up the night with a spark
Feeding the flames of the heart

Sometimes it burns like a candle
Sometimes it’s out of control

I love nights when it rains
And she’s pouring champagne
And she calls out my name in the dark
Passionate light and with eyes full of lightening we light up the night with a spark
Feeding the flames
Feeding the flames of the heart
Feeding the flames of the heart

I Don’t Trust My Memories Anymore

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

I could conjure up so many times
From the good old days when she was mine
I could reminisce on the crazy nights
When I held her close, but I always cry

Verse

No I don’t trust my memories anymore
They ain’t the friends I thought they were before
They used to be so fond
Now my faith in them is gone
No I don’t trust my memories anymore

Got a thousand scars all across my back
This wounded heart just can’t get past
When I see you now in a perfect dream
I wake myself before it turns on me

No I don’t trust my memories anymore
They ain’t the friends I thought they were before
They used to be so fond
Now my faith in them is gone
No I don’t trust my memories anymore

No I don’t trust my memories anymore
They ain’t the friends I thought they were before
They used to be so fond
Now my faith in them is gone
I I don’t trust my memories anymore

They used to be so fond
Now my faith in them is gone
I I don’t trust my memories anymore

Like A Hurricane

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

Well I prayed for peaceful waters
But the storms already came
So let it rain
Let it rain
When the going gets a little harder
Don’t throw it all away
Even though they’re moving slow
The winds of change are gonna blow like a hurricane

Verse

When you’re coming from the bottom you don’t feel like number one
They’ll be days that seem impossible until you get’em done
I’ve been running to the things I thought I was running from
But I’ll run until the day my breath is taken from my lungs

Well I prayed for peaceful waters
But the storms already came
So let it rain
Let it rain
When the going gets a little harder
Don’t throw it all away
Even though they’re moving slow
The winds of change are gonna blow like a hurricane

When you’ve made it to the top you don’t feel like number one
You can’t stop because they count on you to be what you’ve become
It’s not an option but to run at things you should be running from
Cause you’ve gotten what you wanted now you’ve got to get it done

Well I prayed for peaceful waters
But the storms already came
So let it rain
Let it rain
When the going gets a little harder
Don’t throw it all away
Even though they’re moving slow
The winds of change are gonna blow like a hurricane

Well I prayed for peaceful waters
But the storms already came
So let it rain
Let it rain
When the going gets a little harder
Don’t throw it all away
Even though they’re moving slow
The winds of change are gonna blow like a hurricane

Nobody Knows How To Read

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

Chasing our tails
And calling it hell
And running ‘cause running it’s free
While they’re filling our heads
With tin penny dread
Of whatever they want us to see
But we’re here for the show
We already know that it ends like some old tragedy
I’ve got my ear to the ground, there’s signs all around
Nobody knows how to read

Verse

Agendas are sold to the masses
A train wreck, a car crash is all that they show
As soon as we’re cut into classes
They shake up the bottle and watch it explode

Time never changes
And don’t stay the same like the motives of man seem to do
We can bitch we can moan
But that ships long gone
And it ain’t sailing back round too soon
Are you enjoying the show
You already know that it ends like some old tragedy
So keep your ear to the ground, there’s signs all around
Nobody knows how to read

Agendas are sold to the masses
A train wreck, a car crash is all that they show
As soon as we’re cut into classes
They shake up the bottle and watch it explode

Shoulders

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

Workin down my third cup of coffee
Waiting on the grey to burn away
Seems the world outside my window is getting colder
Pray for my shoulders

Verse

I finally just stopped turning on the TV
All it ever does is bring me down
Til this old wicked world starts turning slower
Pray for my shoulders

Heaven only knows
How time can take its toll
Lay burdens on a soul along the way
The weight can hang so heavy
It gets harder standing steady
And holding on gets tougher everyday
So tonight when you get on your knees won’t you pray
For my shoulders

Heaven only knows
How time can take its toll
Lay burdens on a soul along the way
Yeah the weight can hang so heavy
It gets harder standing steady
And holding on gets tougher everyday
So tonight when you get on your knees won’t you pray
Yeah tonight when you get on your knees won’t you pray

Working down my third cup of coffee
Waiting on the grey to burn away

Dying Isn’t Cheap

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

There’s an ashtray of crushed out cigarettes
And an empty bourbon bottle by his bed
A pile of change, a worn-out match book with a name
And a number scribbled on it that can’t be read
Living all alone and in the red
I guess sometimes it’s worse than being dead

Verse

And he said, dying isn’t cheap
It’s a mighty hefty cost
When you’re doing it like me
You’ve already lost
If I had to buy my way to heaven
Guess I’d go to hell
Since the only thing she left me
Was this old soul to sell
Since she set me free
Living don’t come easy and dying isn’t cheap

He said, that woman she was everything
But I guess I wasn’t everything to her
For that woman I gave anything
Now I’d give anything to drown the hurt
I guess I’ll live forever missing her
Because the pills and top shelf whiskey just don’t work

Dying isn’t cheap
It’s a mighty hefty cost
And doing it like me
You’ve already lost
If I had to buy my way to heaven
Guess I’d go to hell
Since the only thing she left me
Was this old soul to sell
Since she set me free
Living don’t come easy and dying isn’t cheap

If I had to buy my way to heaven
Guess I’d go to hell
Since the only thing she left me
Was this old soul to sell
Since she set me free
Living don’t come easy and dying isn’t cheap

Roll

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

There ain’t nothing worse than losing somebody
Love is such a precious thing to find
And I’m the first to admit, it might kill me
If I wasn’t so damn stubborn all the time

Verse

Yeah I know life ain’t easy
Man believe me I lose more than I win
Just gotta roll with the flow and the punches
You might get hit
You’re gonna get back up again

Hard times like to hit when you ain’t ready
You can’t see them coming when you’re looking the other way
Everybody’s out there fighting something
We all get the blues when we’ve still got dues to pay

So just know life ain’t easy
Man believe me you’re gonna lose more than you win
Just gotta roll with the flow and the punches
You might get hit
You’re gonna get back up again

Yeah I know life ain’t easy
Man believe me I lose more than I win
Just gotta roll with the flow and the punches
You might get hit
You’re gonna get back up again

You might get hit
You’re gonna get back up again

When The Whiskey Calls The Shots

Release Date:
November 12, 2021
Intro

Well it’s closing time, I’m down to my last dime
You can bet your ass I’m in a world of trouble
If I’d a stuck with beer, I’d been out of here
But the man in the bar room mirror is still drowning doubles

Verse

When the hard stuff hits my veins
I’m a puppet on a string
That old 90 proof just won’t let me stop
Drop a needle on that old jukebox
I’ll be a fool on a stool but it ain’t my fault
That’s what happens when whiskey whiskey calls the shots

When the morning comes, my old lady son
Gonna come undone loud and clear
But it’ll happen again cause every now and then
My old low down no good friend gets in my ear

When the hard stuff hits my veins
I’m a puppet on a string
That old 90 proof just won’t let me stop
Drop a needle on that old jukebox
I’ll be a fool on a stool but it ain’t my fault
That’s what happens when whiskey whiskey calls the shots

That’s what happens when whiskey whiskey calls the shots
Yeah I do
That’s what happens when whiskey whiskey calls the shots
Let’s go one more time
That’s what happens when whiskey calls the shots
I can do this all day
That’s what happens when whiskey calls the shots

Nothing’s News

Release Date:
September 23, 2022
Intro

I spent my lifetime wishin’ the waitress would come around
Tellin’ jokes, shootin’ pool on the other side of town
The whistle blows at five o’clock there’s only one place I’ll be found
Down at Ernie’s icehouse liftin’ longnecks to that good old country sound

Verse

And talkin’ ’bout the good old times
Braggin’ bout how it used to be
And I’ve worn out the same old lines
Now it seems nothing’s news to me

There’s nothin’ like a steel guitar cryin’ in the night
There’s nothin’ like a sawdust floor and a good old friendly fight
I’d finally find my way back home and you’d patch up my face
But that was another time and another place

Now we’re talkin’ ’bout the good old times
Braggin’ bout how it used to be
I’ve worn out the same old lines
Now it seems nothing’s news to me

I wonder how I came to be the know-it-all I am
And how the world ever got used to me

Talkin’ ’bout the good old times
Braggin’ bout how it used to be
But I’ve worn out the same old lines
Now it seems nothing’s news to me

Mamma Song

Release Date:
May 7, 2021
Intro

I got a half a six pack of Old Milwaukee
And a half a bag of weed
I can’t do it like I did when I was a kid
This is all I’m going to need
Because I know you always worry about me drinking my dinner
But I don’t do that anymore
I got me a sweet girl at home
She’s keeping food on the table
And at night she keeps me warm
So I’ve got me this piece of paper
And I got my favorite pen
I know it’s been a little while
And talking’s not my style
So I just had to write my friend

Verse

Hey I’m doing alright Mamma
I’m ok, I know your late night talks with Jesus
Have helped me on my way
I know it wasn’t always easy
Raising my father’s son
And your son will be alright
If the shows keep comin’
This old guitar and me are still strummin’
I know you always knew I always took it way too far
But I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing ok

You remember the time when I was stuck in L.A.
And I didn’t have a job
And I didn’t have a way to pay the bills that I racked up
Yeah, you kept me from losing my truck
Yeah, I’m a little better off now
Than I was then
But it’s sure nice to see you calling me when
I’m out there on the road
Yeah, you calling to say have a good show

Hey I’m doing alright Mamma
I’m ok, I know your late night talks with Jesus
Have helped me on my way
I know it wasn’t always easy
Raising my father’s son
And your son will be alright
If the shows keep comin’
This old guitar and me are still strummin’
I know you always knew I always took it way too far
But I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma

Intro

California’s still on fire
And it don’t rain no more in Texas
There’s a few less ice caps way up north of here
Mother Russia stays pissed-off
Yeah, she’s got some big old bombs
Still throwin’ around her weight after all these years

Verse

And the price of gasoline is enough to make you scream
Yeah, the cost of livin’ goes up and the pay goes down
I don’t care what’s right or left, y’all
I’m just out here with the rest
In the middle class, that still means broke to me

What else is new? I’m tellin’ you
I’m tellin’ what the blue collar man is goin’ thru
We don’t let no bad news hang around
It’s the same old situation
All the problems facin’ our great nation
So to hell to all those bringin’ that bad news down

And the politicians will never know
How to let their egos go
No, they could not give two damns ’bout you and me
Yeah, but they still got their pensions
With some tactics they’d rather not mention
That’s the price we pay for them livin’ free

What else is new? I’m tellin’ you
All the trouble a blue collar man is goin’ thru
We don’t let no bad news hang around
It’s the same old situation
All the problems facin’ our great nation
So to hell to all those bringin’ that bad news down

What else is new? I’m tellin’ you
All the trouble a blue collar man is goin thru
We don’t let no bad news hang around
It’s the same old situation
All the problems facin’ our great nation
So to hell to all those bringin’ that bad news down

All to hell with all those bringin’ that bad news down
All to hell with all those bringin’ that bad news down

Cast No Stones

Release Date:
May 7, 2021
Intro

I cast no stones
I build no walls
And I tell the truth
The truth comes to call
And I try to walk
That narrow way
Sometimes I go over the lines
And I won’t make it back till the next day

Verse

But I cast no stones
What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good God man your out of your mind
So put up your Bible
Or let me get mine
I’m not draggin’ the whole world to hell
You’re wasting my time

I don’t talk with Jesus
As much as I should
I don’t read that good book
Everyday like I could
But I like to stop
At the end of the day
I pray that I hurt nobody
And somebody new found their way

But I cast no stones
What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good God man your out of your mind
So put up your Bible
Or let me get mine
I’m not draggin’ the whole world to hell
You’re wasting my time

But I cast no stones
What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good God man your out of your mind
So put up your Bible
Or let me get mine
I’m not draggin’ the whole world to hell
You’re wasting my time

Say a prayer for me brother
And I’ll see you on down the line

We’re Gonna Dance

Release Date:
May 7, 2021
Intro

I’ve been gone for way too long
And I’ve been working way too hard
And I know, it’s taking it’s toll on you
But tonight I’ll make things right
By the fire with some candlelight
And I’ll tell you
What we’re gonna do

verse

We’re not going out
We’re gonna stay right here at home
There won’t be anyone in the world
When we’re all alone

We’re gonna
Lay the worries back and love until we’re back on track
If you’ll just give me this chance
Move the couch, lock the door, socks move well on a hardwood floor
And we’re gonna dance
We’re gonna dance

The rush of life can get you down
If you let it, it runs you to the ground
But that’s just life

We’re not going out, we’re gonna stay right here at home
There won’t be anyone in the world
When we’re all alone

We’re gonna
Lay the worries back and love until we’re back on track
If you’ll just give me this chance
Move the couch, lock the door, socks move well on a hardwood floor
And we’re gonna dance
We’re gonna dance

Birds

Release Date:
May 7, 2021
Intro

Tell me old man, where have you been
I’ve been reading those stories, about chasing the wind
I guess I’ve come back with one or two
I’ve never really quite known what to do

verse

Tell me old man, what are you looking for
Has it been worth all you’ve given and so much more
Sometimes the things we seek skew the point
Sometimes the whole damn world seems out of joint

And it makes me wonder
And it makes me want to live
So I’ll steal freedom while there’s still some
And take the whole world in
If I could only leave my worries with the birds of the wind
And I know one day there’ll be solace
So I’ll just live ‘til then
If I could only leave my worries with the birds of the wind

Old man I know you’ve had questions too
The same ones we’ve been askin’ of you
You just roll on back out of sight
Stealin’ away again, like a child in the night
Still full of wonder
And you still want to live

You steal freedom while there’s still some
And take the whole world in
You’ve learned to leave your worries with the birds of the wind
And you know one day there’ll be solace
So you’ll just live ‘til then
And you learn to leave your worries with the birds of the wind

If I could only leave my worries with the birds of the wind

Loud and Heavy

Release Date:
May 7, 2021
Intro

Loud thunder heavy rain
Thin line between joy and pain
It’s a long strange trip it’s all insane
You ain’t never gonna be the same
Living life through the night
Thin line of a lightning strike
Sometimes the only light
When the moon is tucked away

Verse

Pistons pumpin’
Minds are racin’
It’s hard to sleep man
When I’m shakin’
Bad news surrounds me
Its always found me
Creeping up when things are good
Yeah the dark days find a way

Loud thunder heavy rain
Thin line between joy and pain
It’s a long strange trip it’s all insane
You ain’t never gonna be the same
Living life through the night
Thin line of a lightning strike
Sometimes the only light
When the moon is tucked away

The camera captures
All the things that
Make us turn from
What we see
It’s always moving
It don’t stop rolling
I haven’t slept in three damn days
Yeah, but who needs that anyway

Loud thunder heavy rain
Thin line between joy and pain
It’s a long strange trip it’s all insane
You ain’t never gonna be the same
Living life through the night
Thin line of a lightning strike
Sometimes the only light
When the moon is tucked away
Loud thunder heavy rain
Thin line between joy and pain
It’s a long strange trip it’s all insane
You ain’t never gonna be the same
Living life through the night
Thin line of a lightning strike
Sometimes the only light

David

Release Date:
May 7, 2021
Intro

My friend David, was a good kid
He had my back, always knew he did
He was different than most
And maybe I was too
Hanging out with the in-crowd just wasn’t our thing
There was a whole lot more
Than we could see on these plains
Well, some people just seem to get stuck, and hang around
It’s college or trade school for those with the means
There’s never been any small town for those in between
Yeah the poor folks they go to work, or they go to war
I did fifteen hundreds days in the corps
And I got back, nothing looked the same anymore
I got on with the local police, it just seemed to fit
Things have changed

Verse

By then David had a daughter and a son
And a rap sheet to prove all the time that he’d done
He was just a burned out beat down shell of my old friend
And on a three day binge he was speeding through town
And I bumped the wailers just to try and slow him down
He didn’t know that it was me, and he took off
Oh how things change

And I found his truck in the floodplain upside down
It was a hell of a rain I don’t know if he’d drowned
Or if he died on impact, it must have rolled three times
Yeah, the only thing to make matters worse
Is that his mama’s a late night ER nurse
And he was DOA, she just about lost her mind

David’s wife drops by every once in a while
And childhood stories always make her smile
But somehow we always go back to that day

And I found his truck in the floodplain upside down
It was a hell of a rain, I don’t know if he’d drowned
Or if he died on impact, it must have rolled three times
Yeah, the only thing to make matters worse
Is that his mama’s a late night ER nurse
And he was DOA, she just about lost her mind

Ain’t it the times

Me or You

Release Date:
May 7, 2021
Intro

You’re thinking of leavin’ tonight
Go on and go
If you’re sure it’s the right thing to do
You know I was never the kind for draggin’ things out
And I thought neither were you

Verse

It hurts me to see you unhappy, and it hurts me to know
It’s me that’s made you that way
So maybe it’s me that should go
So you don’t go on hatin’
Us both for just one more day

Out on the line walkin’ the tightrope
It ain’t always easy
But I’ve always been true
You don’t have to tell me
If you’d done any different
God only knows it’s how this one goes
Is it me or you

If I may just leave you one question
What took so long
What’s kept you around all this time
If I’d known somethin’ was wrong
I might could’a changed things
it’s too late and it seems that I’m blind
I’ve been so wrong for so long
With no way of knowing, what for
At least I’d have tried if I’d known
But it don’t matter, anymore

Out on the line walkin’ the tightrope
It ain’t always easy
But I’ve always been true
You don’t have to tell me
If you’d done any different
God only knows it’s how this one goes
Is it me or you

God only knows it’s how this one goes
Is it me or you?

Folks

Release Date:
May 7, 2021
Intro

Some folks like to look, they like to point
They like to push, they like to shove
Some folks like to talk about the things they have
The things they love
But things are that, just things, and I don’t give a damn
I must seem trite

Verse

I’m not that old, I’m not too young
I’m not too smart, I sure ain’t dumb
I walked around and round and round, most every place
I’ve been found and all I’ve found
Is most places usually seem the same to me

And I talk to people off the street, my line of work
I tend to meet the kind of folk that seem like-minded
Those of us just trying to find our way
So let’s just meet up at some place
We can sort it out

And I talk with people off the street, my line of work
I tend to meet the kind of folk that seem like-minded
Those of us just trying to find our way
So let’s just meet up at some place
We can sort it out

This God-forsaken world, it chews you up and spits you out
It scuffs your shoes, it takes most everything you got
And then it tries you with the blues
But that’s alright
The blues is somethin’ proves that you still feel

Some folks like to look, they like to point
They like to push, they like to shove
Some folks like to talk about the things they have
The things they love
But things are that, just things, and I don’t give a damn
And I’m alright

It’s been a too long time with no peace of mind

Hopin’ to find a way out
I’ve had enough of this continual rain
Changes are comin’ no doubt

Verse

It’s been a too long time with no peace of mind
And I’m ready for the times to get better

You seem to want from me what I cannot give

It’s burning holes in my mind

Dirt

Release Date:
May 7, 2021
Intro

I remember that summer
I was ten years old
When our days, ceased to shine
No, you could not take a breath
When those black blizzards came
Strippin’ land, in dire need of rain

Verse

There was dirt on the floor
As mama swept all day long
Leavin’ trails of tears and mud down her face
There was dirt in our beds
And there was dirt in our clothes
And there was dirt, in the little that we ate

We had heard about the market’s fall
A couple years before
But the fields and the harvest all seemed fine
Sometimes the things that kill us
That which we don’t know
That strip the land of everything but pride

Stay close together
That’s all we knew to get by
I recall a helpless feelin’
First time that I saw my father cry
Lookin’ back on everything we had, on everything we lost
Still makes me wonder, was stayin’ worth the cost

Alot of town folk up and left
They boarded up the schools and banks and the churches
And that to me, was wrong
Come next year it would be better
Will the last one standin’ tall before the walls
Show the most resolve

They announced the New Deal
With the Conservation Act and then the Relief Fund
But we were on our knees
There was little hope by then
So we just stood there in that line
And we thanked the man for that little bit of cheese

Stay close together
That’s all we knew to get by
And I recall a helpless feelin’
The first time that I saw my father cry
Lookin’ back on everything we had, on everything we lost
Still makes me wonder, was stayin’ worth the cost?

I don’t wanna rock and roll no more
At least not the way I did, back before
That life tried to kill me
To tell the truth it never thrilled me
I don’t wanna rock and roll no more
I don’t wanna rock and roll

Verse

I don’t need that whiskey anymore
Least not the way I did back before
That stuff tried to kill me
To tell the truth it never thrilled me
I don’t want that whiskey anymore
I don’t need that whiskey

I don’t mean to disappoint you

I don’t wanna miss you anymore
I just want you right here in my arms
This ol’ life still trying to kill me
You’re the only thing that’s filled me

Must Be The Whiskey

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

No I’m not goin’ crazy, but lately my head and my heart
Seem to be at least a million miles apart
My heart says to love ya, my head says to run
It’s like my heart is too afraid to tell my head what it’s done
I know that it can never be the way it was
Even though you’ll be the death of me I can’t give you up
Too much is not enough; it’s not the love, it’s not the lust that grips me
It must be the whiskey

Verse

I’ve been drinkin’ to remember and drinkin’ to forget
I got “I love you” on my mind, I got Jim Beam on my breath
And loneliness has got the rest, I’ve got nothin’ left within me
It must be the whiskey

Oh I’m not goin’ crazy, but lately these thoughts in my head
Are a whirlwind of a world of a million regrets
All the things I should’ve done, all the things I should’ve said
All the pain that comes with hatin’ the mess you’ve made of yourself
I know I’m chasin’ rainbows thinkin’ I could make it work
But the fact is that my actions speak louder than my words
And it only makes it worse thinkin’ of her, thinkin’ she’ll forgive me
It must be the whiskey

I’ve been drinkin’ to remember and drinkin’ to forget
I got “I love you” on my mind, I got Jim Beam on my breath
And loneliness has got the rest, I’ve got nothin’ left within me
It must be the whiskey

I’ve been drinkin’ to remember and drinkin’ to forget
I got “I love you” on my mind, I got Jim Beam on my breath
And loneliness has got the rest, I’ve got nothin’ left within me
Sometimes it hits me whenever I’m a little tipsy
Oh, it hits me whenever I’m a little tipsy
It must be the whiskey

It must be the whiskey
It must be the whiskey
It’s that whiskey
It must be the whiskey

Mamma Song

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

I got a half a six pack of Old Milwaukee
And a half a bag of weed
I can’t do it like I did when I was a kid
This is all I’m going to need
Because I know you always worry about me drinking my dinner
But I don’t do that anymore
I got me a sweet girl at home
She’s keeping food on the table
And at night she keeps me warm
So I’ve got me this piece of paper
And I got my favorite pen
I know it’s been a little while
And talking’s not my style
So I just had to write my friend

Verse

Hey I’m doing alright Mamma
I’m ok, I know your late night talks with Jesus
Have helped me on my way
I know it wasn’t always easy
Raising my father’s son
And your son will be alright
If the shows keep comin’
This old guitar and me are still strummin’
I know you always knew I always took it way too far
But I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing ok

You remember the time when I was stuck in L.A.
And I didn’t have a job
And I didn’t have a way to pay the bills that I racked up
Yeah, you kept me from losing my truck
Yeah, I’m a little better off now
Than I was then
But it’s sure nice to see you calling me when
I’m out there on the road
Yeah, you calling to say have a good show

Hey I’m doing alright Mamma
I’m ok, I know your late night talks with Jesus
Have helped me on my way
I know it wasn’t always easy
Raising my father’s son
And your son will be alright
If the shows keep comin’
This old guitar and me are still strummin’
I know you always knew I always took it way too far
But I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma

Intro

Where does time go, It’s gone away
Time was on my side, yesterday
So much can change, between then and now
Where does time go

Verse

Where do dreams die, along the way
Dreams are all we had, yesterday
Who told all the vampires of the world
They were welcome anyway
Where do dreams die

Who gave who the message
Who gave who the hands of time
Who gave who the job to take, reason and the rhyme
Like another Holden Caulfield
I’m a Catcher in the Rye
Who told who to take the dreams out back to die
Who told who to take the dreams out back to die

Who gave who the message
Who gave who the hands of time
Who gave who the job to take, reason and the rhyme
Like another Holden Caulfield
I’m a Catcher in the Rye
Who told who to take the dreams out back to die
Who told who to take the dreams out back to die

Who gave who the message

No Words

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

My whole view of the word has changed
I guess that comes with age
I don’t believe there’s good in every man
Like I did back then

Verse

I may drink more than I should
You’ve seen me on the floor
Spend my lifetime in this cage, I built around me
Bangin’ on the doors

And no words
Could ever say how much I need you
With you here
You make this life I lead worth living

Heaven knows I broke your heart
I can’t take that away
All I’m worth is just this promise that I’ve made to you
To stand beside you just like you have stood beside me

And no words
Could ever say how much I need you
With you here
You make this life I lead worth living

You could be much better off
God knows without me
And that’s why
I just can’t find the words

You could be much better off
God knows without me
And that’s why
I just can’t find the words

Been Around

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

I don’t run from guilt you see my conscience lets me know at least a thousand times or better every day
Things I’ve done mistakes I’ve made, raised feelings I’ll lay in some grave if ever I am finally laid to rest

Verse

If there’s time to pray before I die, I pray dear Lord you know that I was a righteous man that somehow lost his way
Face me down when I shall pass so the world can kiss my ass and Hell can’t come and get me from behind

Verse

I’ve danced in the flames and I’ve been burned
I’ve walked on the harder side of life, I’ve takin’ all the wrong turns
I’ve been around
I’ve been down
And I’ve been wasted
I fight with myself
sometimes I lose
I got me an angel on my shoulder, but I’ve got the devil too, I get down
I get around and I get wasted

Twenty-seven years along I’ve tried to make them right all wrong and I’ve nearly died a few times on my way
Well I’ve seen the face of God first hand and I’ve danced with the devil man, I’ve needed help and grab for both of their hands

I’ve danced in the flames and I’ve been burned
I’ve walked on the harder side of life, I’ve takin’ all the wrong turns
I’ve been around
I’ve been down
And I’ve been wasted
I fight with myself, sometimes I lose
I got me an angel on my shoulder, but I’ve got the devil too, I get down
I get around and I get wasted

I fight with myself
Sometimes I lose
I got me an angel on my shoulder, but I’ve got the devil too
I get down I get around and I get wasted

I don’t run from guilt you see my conscience lets me know at least a thousand times or better every day

Big Last Name

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

Daddy must’ve told her when she was sixteen
Don’t settle for a poor man’s diamond ring
Take a lesson from your mama, girl, it ain’t no shame
To find a man with some money and a big last name

Verse

She wore that crown at the Rose Parade
All them boys starin’ at her thinkin’ maybe someday
All their credit put together couldn’t get her to the game
She wants a man with some money and a big last name

She’s had the pick of the litter since the day she was born
Ain’t nothin’ good enough in this town
She’s a product of her mama, she gets what she wants
Ain’t layin’ that silver spoon down
She wants to be in a picture in a gold-leaf frame
With a man with some money and a big last name

She’s had the pick of the litter since the day she was born
Ain’t nothin’ good enough in this town
She’s a product of her mama, she gets what she wants
Ain’t layin’ that silver spoon down
She wants to be in a picture in a gold-leaf frame
With a man with some money and a big last name
Man with some money and a big last name

Well she met a rich banker down in San Antone
He had a pre-nup ready for her name to be on
The she came home early to a pretty young thing
In bed with some money and a big last name
In bed with some money and a big last name
In bed with some money and a big last name

Head Case

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

I know it’s hard to find the words so often standin’ face-to-face
Sometimes it takes a thin white sheet to put things into place
Things that I could never say come floodin’ out somehow upon these lines

Verse

I’m still fightin’ the same battles I’ve been fightin’ all these years
A dreamer is not a dreamer unless you’re livin’ with a fear
What they say will be forgotten, all that’s done will be for naught
And why

And it’s been a long time, Lord, since I sat down and had a cry
It’s sometimes overwhelmin’ and I can’t tell ya why
But I remember Jackson singin’ “Doctor, doctor, please
My eyes

And my heroes, they’re all dyin’ or they’re sittin’ in a cell
Due to years of medicatin’ minds that hurt so well
There’s a thin line, don’t you see, between genius and insanity
Which am I

One thing that scares the hell in me is livin’ with mortality
And worryin’ that I’m insane talkin’ to a God unseen
Must surely make me crazy, so crazy’s what I’ll be
‘Til I’m gone
‘Til I’m gone

And I’ll scream out to the sun and to the moon and to the stars
I’ll scream until my voice finds you, no matter where you are
I’ll scream until I’ve got no breath and all that’s left to take is death
And I’m done
When I’m done
Oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh

Somewhere in the Middle

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

Couldn’t have ever dawned on me
All the things that I would be I
I never really looked out quite that far
It’s never been a simple thing
To see the world with a young man’s brain, with
An old man’s heart, restless soul

Verse

Yeah, my family went broke in my eighteenth year
Dad took a job many miles from here that
That was alright by me I was on my own
I had a band, found a job, life was alright
I worked when I had to, we played all the time, only
Got through that first year of college, alright

But I learned more on the freight docks
Driving forklifts on the 3 o’clock
AM shift In the winter time, man it got cold
Selling guitars on the west coast
Going hungry, chasin’ ghost around and around we would go
And I saw it all tendin’ bar at night
Treatin’ saints and sinners right
It’s a good thing to do all the time
You never know who you’re talkin’ to
But always know who’s watching you
Keep your feet movin’ straight down the line

I’ve known a lot of real good men
Grad school or no school
I’ve called em’ my friends, I’m
I’m Somewhere in the Middle and that’s just fine
No, I don’t give a damn how much money you make
If your last shirt has pockets, take all you can take, I’m
I’m goin’ out with nothin’ like I came in

Cause I learned more on the freight docks
Driving forklifts on the 3 o’clock
AM shift In the winter time, man it got cold
Selling guitars on the west coast
Going hungry, chasin’ ghost around and around we would go
And I saw it all tendin’ bar at night
Treatin’ saints and sinners right
It’s a good thing, to do all the time
You never know who you’re talkin’ to
But always know who’s watching you
Keep your feet movin’ straight down the line

But I learned more on the freight docks
Driving forklifts on the 3 o’clock
AM shift In the winter time, man it got cold
Selling guitars on the west coast
Going hungry, chasin’ ghost around and around we would go
And I saw it all tendin’ bar at night
Treatin’ saints and sinners right
It’s a good thing to do all the time
You never know who you’re talkin’ to
But always know who’s watching you
Keep your feet movin’ straight down the line

Somewhere in the middle and that’s just fine
Somewhere in the middle and that’s just fine

Can’t Quit Enough

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

I’ve played every honky tonk and roadside bar and juke joint
Between here and Minneapolis
You know I’ve lived these miles
There’s a Haggard man behind these eyes and smile

Verse

I picked up the guitar ’round the time I turned fourteen
Lit that fire, been burnin’ tires, hard booze, both ends and gasoline
Stayin’ wired
Come back down the best that we know how
We know now

We’re all tryin’ to quit smokin’
Tired of laughin’, tired of jokin’
‘Bout the habits we all have slowly creepin’ up
We all gotta die from somethin’
Livin’ kills you, life is tough
But I can’t quit ’cause I can’t quit enough

I’ve felt all the pressures playin’ to an empty room
And the pleasures of a crowd that’s singin’ loud to every word to all my songs
But the band and me, Lord, keep rollin’ on
We roll on

We’re all tryin’ to quit smokin’
Tired of laughin’, tired of jokin’
‘Bout the habits we all have slowly creepin’ up
We all gotta die from somethin’
Livin’ kills you, life is tough
But I can’t quit ’cause I can’t quit enough

We’re all tryin’ to quit smokin’
Tired of laughin’, tired of jokin’
‘Bout the habits we all have slowly creepin’ up
We all gotta die from somethin’
Livin’ kills you, life is tough
But I can’t quit cause I can’t quit enough
I’ll never quit cause I can’t quit enough

I’m Not The Devil

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

I’m not the devil you think that I am
It ain’t no excuse, but I’m just a man
I slipped and I fell, it got outta hand
But I’m not the devil you think that I am

Verse

It wasn’t no gun, held to my head
I got caught up believing, in lies that were said
In a moment of weakness
I stumbled and I made my bed

I’m not the devil you think that I am
It ain’t no excuse, but I’m just a man
I slipped and I fell, it got outta hand
But I’m not the devil you think that I am

There’s 10,000 reasons
For you not to stay
And no one would blame you
If you want it that way
It might take some time
But I’ll show, you that I’m worth the wait

I’m not the devil you think that I am
It ain’t no excuse, but I’m just a man
I slipped and I fell, it got outta hand
But I’m not the devil you think that I am
And I’ll spend forever, do all that I can
To prove I’m Not The Devil you think that I am
And I’m not the devil

Somewhere Between I Love You and I’m Leavin’

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

I’m somewhere between I love you and I’m leavin’
Somewhere between I need you and lettin’ go
And it scares me so when I look hard I find no good reasons
I’m somewhere between I love you and I’m leavin’

Verse

Somewhere between I miss you and I’m gone
Runnin’ hard through the middle of the night, and you spend yours alone
I hold you close then I let you go, no leavin’ well-enough alone
I’m somewhere between I miss you and I’m gone

And the ties that bind, they hold my mind
No matter where I go, I’m alone
Here with you or out there tearin’ down some road
Nowhere is home
And you’re the only thing on earth that I believe in
I’m somewhere between I love you and I’m leavin’

And the ties that bind, they hold my mind
No matter where I go, I’m alone
Here with you or out there tearin’ down some road
Nowhere is home
And you’re the only thing on earth that I believe in
I can stay or I can go and not break even
I’m somewhere between I love you and I’m leavin’
I’m somewhere between I love you and I’m leavin’

Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

Daddy won a radio,
He tuned it to a country show.
I was rockin’ in the cradle
To the cryin’ of a steel guitar.
Mama used to sing to me.
She taught me that sweet harmony.
Now she worries cause never thought
I’d ever really take it this far.

Verse

Singin’ in the bars and
Chasin’ that neon rainbow
Livin’ that honky-tonk dream,
Cause all I’ve ever wanted is to
Pick this guitar and sing.

Just tryin’ to be somebody
Just wanna be heard and seen.
A chasin’ that neon rainbow
Livin’ that honky-tonk dream.
An atlas and a coffee cup,
5 pickers in an old Dodge truck,
Headin’ down to Houston for a show
On Saturday night.
This overhead is killin’ me,
Half the time I sing for free,
But when the crowd’s in to it Lord
It makes this thing I’m doin’ seem right.
Standin’ in the spotlight.

Chasin’ that neon rainbow
I’m a livin’ that honky-tonk dream.
Cause all I’ve ever wanted is to
Pick this guitar and sing
Just tryin’ to be somebody,
That’s want to be heard and seen,
Chasin’ that neon rainbow,
Livin’ that honky-tonk dream
Daddy’s got a radio
He won it 30 years ago.

He said “Son I just know we’re gonna
Hear you sing on it some day”.
I made it up to Music Row
Lordy don’t the wheels turn slow.
Still I wouldn’t trade a minute,
I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Just show me to the stage, I’m
Chasin’ that neon rainbow,
I’m a livin’ that honky-tonk dream,
Cause all I’ve ever wanted,
Is to pick this guitar and sing.
Just tryin’ to be somebody
That’s wanna be heard and seen.
Chasin’ that neon rainbow,
Livin’ that honky-tonk dream.

Oh I’m chasin’ that neon rainbow,
Livin’ that honky-tonk dream.

What Else Is New

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

California’s still on fire
And it don’t rain no more in Texas
There’s a few less ice caps way up north of here
Mother Russia stays pissed-off
Yeah, she’s got some big old bombs
Still throwin’ around her weight after all these years

Verse

And the price of gasoline is enough to make you scream
Yeah, the cost of livin’ goes up and the pay goes down
I don’t care what’s right or left, y’all
I’m just out here with the rest
In the middle class, that still means broke to me

What else is new? I’m tellin’ you
I’m tellin’ what the blue collar man is goin’ thru
We don’t let no bad news hang around
It’s the same old situation
All the problems facin’ our great nation
So to hell to all those bringin’ that bad news down

And the politicians will never know
How to let their egos go
No, they could not give two damns ’bout you and me
Yeah, but they still got their pensions
With some tactics they’d rather not mention
That’s the price we pay for them livin’ free

What else is new? I’m tellin’ you
All the trouble a blue collar man is goin’ thru
We don’t let no bad news hang around
It’s the same old situation
All the problems facin’ our great nation
So to hell to all those bringin’ that bad news down

What else is new? I’m tellin’ you
All the trouble a blue collar man is goin thru
We don’t let no bad news hang around
It’s the same old situation
All the problems facin’ our great nation
So to hell to all those bringin’ that bad news down

All to hell with all those bringin’ that bad news down
All to hell with all those bringin’ that bad news down

Alone

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

I’ve seen the sun for the first time
In a week or so
I wipe the sleep from my eyes
I’ve got nowhere to go
A cup of coffee in my hand
I’ve got me a smoke
There nothing doin’, I just wanna be alone

Verse

The right end of the sunrise
It sure looks nice
To see a new day taking shape
Not startin’ with no night
Well I been rollin’ along on a thin dime
And I’m happy to be home
Please forgive me, I just wanna be alone

Well I’m gonna finish this pot of coffee
And I’m gonna put me another on
Well I might grab my thread-bear Martin
And pick me out a song
I know I’ll sit right here, I’ll smoke one more
And just enjoy the dawn
I’m not angry, I just wanna be alone

Spent my lifetime runnin’ around
It suits me fine
Shakin’ hands and one night stands
That’s what gets me by
But the days gettin’ short
And the songs gettin’ long
It’s time to go
No, I’m not angry, I just wanna be alone

Well I’m gonna finish this pot of coffee
And I’m gonna put me another on
Well I might grab my thread-bear Martin
And pick me out a song
I know I’ll sit right here, I’ll smoke one more
And just enjoy the dawn
Now I’m not angry, I just wanna be alone
Please forgive me, I just wanna be alone
There’s nothin’ doin’, I just wanna be alone

Fast Hand

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

I didn’t wanna shoot that man
But he heard that I was fast
You know that liquor gave him the courage
To put a man to the ground
But nobody saw
I couldn’t claim no self-defense
So I took off with the morning sun,
Running from my sins

Verse

I ended up in every town
Where all the bad men go
And they’ve been running just like me
Someone always knows
He’ll say, “Ain’t you the man who shot that boy?”
Who wanted his turn to dance
So will I die in some street that night
No never had a chance

I never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand
Ain’t going to be nothing in hell
I haven’t lived through here
I’m just going to walk out
and wish you all goodnight
I never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand

I ended up in Fort Worth
‘Cause no one knows me here
And time has a funny way
of taken away the years
But I don’t mind the changes
Or the age that’s in my face
Because there is a piece of my soul
In every man I’ve killed
In every God forsaken place

Never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand
Ain’t going to be nothing in hell
I haven’t lived through here
I’m just going to walk out
yeah tonight I’ll save your life
I never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand

Holy Water

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

I walk around on pins and needles
Around people I can’t even name
I keep on passin’ church steeples
Prayin’ that my God is still the same
I been wanderin’ like a fool too blind to see
Maybe it ain’t the bottle that I need

Verse

I need a shot of holy water
I need it to chase down my demons
And burn ’em just a little bit hotter
I’ve been havin’ drinks with the devil in this neon town
I need a shot of holy water to wash it down

Lost in a land of smoke and mirrors
I do my best to just stay clear of my yesterdays
I’ve been runnin’ so long, now I’m runnin’ from myself
Tired of runnin’ away
I’m still tryin’ to get through to the man I wanna be
Maybe I’m not so gone that I can’t see

I need a shot of holy water
I need it to chase down my demons
And burn ’em just a little bit hotter
I’ve been havin’ drinks with the devil in this neon town
I need a shot of holy water to wash it down

I need a shot of holy water
I need a shot of holy water
I need a shot of holy water
I need a shot of holy water

I need a shot of holy water
I need it to chase down my demons
And burn ’em just a little bit hotter
I’ve been havin’ drinks with the devil in this neon town
I need a shot of holy water to wash it down

(Holy, holy water)
I need a shot of holy water (holy, holy water)
I need a shot of holy water (holy, holy water)
(Holy, holy water)
(Holy, holy water)
(Holy, holy water)
(Holy, holy water)

Release Date:

Intro

And it’s gonna get hard, for it gets easy, I oughta know
I hear the voice of Jesus and I hear the devil talkin’
Just the same
And it seems they’re tryin’ to talk over each other
Any given day
I’ve lived the words in red so many times
By now I thought that I might see
I guess I’m sayin’ this life just ain’t the way
I thought that it might be

Verse

I been wanderin’ down the hallways
Ya’ll roads just like some kid out skippin’ school
By the time that I was seventeen
I figured I was done with all the rules
I turn 35 this year and I’m still runnin’ hard
For somethin’ I can’t see
The only thing in life that’s guaranteed
There are no guarantees

And it’s gonna get hard for it gets easy, I oughta know
It’s gonna take a lotta rain, for the seed you planted, starts to grow
The more I know, the more I know that I don’t know
I know nothin’s free
And there ain’t no guarantees

The more I know, the more I know that I don’t know
I know nothin’s free
And there ain’t no guarantees
And it’s gonna get hard for it gets easy, I oughta know
It’s gonna take a lotta rain, for the seed you planted, starts to grow
The more I know, the more I know that I don’t know
I know nothin’s free

Lifers

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

He wakes with the chickens and the Waco sun
He’s got mouths to feed and cattle to run
Same as his daddy and his daddy done
It’s all he’s ever known
In this modern world movin’ break-neck fast
He’s a dyin’ breed, a thing of the past
He’ll be damned if he don’t hit back
If you stand in his way
When there’s nothin’ more to say

Verse

So here’s to the lifers
The struggle-and-strifers
Workin’ long after the day is done
Here’s to the throw-backs
The cowboys in old hats
The last of the great generation
It seems they still dream

She’s a renaissance girl with a fire in her soul
She’s got a pocket full of nothin’, nobody tells her no
She flew into town twenty years ago
With a guitar and a song
She’s been playin’ them rooms but she ain’t got far
Been livin’ off tips in them Broadway bars
She’s a troubadour queen but time left its mark
The scene’s passed her by
In a world that’s passed her by

So here’s to the lifers
The struggle-and-strifers
Workin’ long after the day is done
Here’s to the throw-backs
The cowboys in old hats
The last of the great generation
It seems they still dream

No they don’t give up and they don’t give in
When things don’t go their way
Yeah we’re getting’ knocked down
Yeah we’re getting’ back up
Live to die another day

So here’s to the lifers
The struggle-and-strifers
Workin’ long after the day is done
Here’s to the throw-backs
The cowboys in old hats
The last of the great generation
It seems they still dream

Cast No Stones

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

I cast no stones
I build no walls
And I tell the truth
The truth comes to call
And I try to walk
That narrow way
Sometimes I go over the lines
And I won’t make it back till the next day

Verse

But I cast no stones
What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good God man your out of your mind
So put up your Bible
Or let me get mine
I’m not draggin’ the whole world to hell
You’re wasting my time

I don’t talk with Jesus
As much as I should
I don’t read that good book
Everyday like I could
But I like to stop
At the end of the day
I pray that I hurt nobody
And somebody new found their way

But I cast no stones
What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good God man your out of your mind
So put up your Bible
Or let me get mine
I’m not draggin’ the whole world to hell
You’re wasting my time

But I cast no stones
What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good God man your out of your mind
So put up your Bible
Or let me get mine
I’m not draggin’ the whole world to hell
You’re wasting my time

Say a prayer for me brother
And I’ll see you on down the line

Colorado

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
It’s about the only thing I ever do
Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
Don’t think I ain’t thinkin’ ’bout you

Verse

Even though our love might’ve gone down burnin’
Like the sunset on the mountains out in Vail
And our best days might have been some I’d forgotten
But our worst days I remember much too well

Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
It’s about the only thing I ever do
Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
Don’t think I ain’t thinkin’ ’bout you

I look back to when we carved our names in marble
On an aspen by the cabin where we stayed
And I wonder if that tree’s still strong and standin’
Despite the broken promises we made

Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
It’s about the only thing I ever do

Don’t think I ain’t thinkin’ ’bout you

Loud and Heavy

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

Loud thunder heavy rain
Thin line between joy and pain
It’s a long strange trip it’s all insane
You ain’t never gonna be the same
Living life through the night
Thin line of a lightning strike
Sometimes the only light
When the moon is tucked away

Verse

Pistons pumpin’
Minds are racin’
It’s hard to sleep man
When I’m shakin’
Bad news surrounds me
Its always found me
Creeping up when things are good
Yeah the dark days find a way

Loud thunder heavy rain
Thin line between joy and pain
It’s a long strange trip it’s all insane
You ain’t never gonna be the same
Living life through the night
Thin line of a lightning strike
Sometimes the only light
When the moon is tucked away

The camera captures
All the things that
Make us turn from
What we see
It’s always moving
It don’t stop rolling
I haven’t slept in three damn days
Yeah, but who needs that anyway

Loud thunder heavy rain
Thin line between joy and pain
It’s a long strange trip it’s all insane
You ain’t never gonna be the same
Living life through the night
Thin line of a lightning strike
Sometimes the only light
When the moon is tucked away
Loud thunder heavy rain
Thin line between joy and pain
It’s a long strange trip it’s all insane
You ain’t never gonna be the same
Living life through the night
Thin line of a lightning strike
Sometimes the only light
When the moon is tucked away

Loud thunder heavy rain
Loud thunder heavy rain
Thin line between joy and pain
A long strange trip it’s all insane
You ain’t never gonna be the same
Loud thunder heavy rain
Loud thunder heavy rain

Hippies and Cowboys

Release Date:
December 4, 2020
Intro

Well I started on the whiskey pretty early this morning
That’s alright, I was up all night
But I passed out before the sun came up
I really wanted to see one of those
I know that’s no way for a man to behave
With a mortgage due and a baby on the way
But somehow I made it to where I’m at
It’s been a living as a matter of fact

Verse

I get a bad attitude from being tired and running ‘round
I never ask for anyone to say they like my sound
I’ve never been a part of any musical scene
I ain’t just talking Nashville, if you know what I mean
They don’t write about me, in their magazines
And I don’t ask for no reviews on the songs that I sing
I never had a lot of friends and I’m alright by that
But people keep on coming back

Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
They don’t care about no trends
They don’t care about songs that sell
Yeah, tomorrow I’ll be gone
So tonight everybody just sing along
Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys

I’ve been standing on the outside for all of my life
But I like the view, I’m not gonna lie
Yeah, the yuppies and the hipsters and the wannabe scenes
That ain’t down home to me
I like two dollar beers, I like three dollar wells
At some old honky tonk bar that I know by the smell
Some old drunk on a bar stool on a Merle Haggard tune
That’s my kind of room

Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
They don’t care about no trends
They don’t care about songs that sell
Yeah, tomorrow I’ll be gone
So tonight everybody just sing along
Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys

Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
They don’t care about no trends
They don’t care about songs that sell
Yeah, tomorrow I’ll be gone
So tonight everybody just sing along
Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
And I’ll be raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys

After The Fire

Release Date:
October 19, 2019
Intro

I lost my way
I lost track
My heart and all my money
The shirt off my back
Then I found a place
To lie and rest
Clear the cloudy skies of my mind
Clean up my mess

Verse

I’m not sure if this is prayer, or if it’s plea
Beggin’ or hopin’ or my insanity
You’re my first clean breath after the fire
You’re that cool drink of water my soul requires

Are you the sunshine
Are you are the rain
You light my darkness
You wash my pain
You’re I love you in a world of doubt
Fill me with somethin’, I can’t go without

I’m not sure if this is a prayer or if it’s plea
Beggin’ or hopin’ or my insanity
You’re my first clean breath after the fire
You’re the cool drink of water my soul requires

Ain’t A Train

Release Date:
October 19, 2019
Intro

Livin’ on wings and wheels
In my mind or made of steel
If you ain’t running scared and rough
Then you ain’t running fast enough for me

Verse

Behind the 8 ball ain’t always a bad place to be
You can get out of anything with a dollar and a dream
When your back against the wall your fixed
But they can’t get you from your six, you know

Maybe holdin’ on to something hurts you more than lettin’ go
It hit ain’t hurtin’ maybe it ain’t workin’, it ain’t worth it no.
Maybe that rain that brings the thunder, will help put out the flames
Maybe the light at the end of the tunnel ain’t a train

Maybe holdin’ on to something hurts you more than lettin’ go
It it ain’t hurtin’ maybe it ain’t workin’, it ain’t worth it no.
Maybe that rain that brings the thunder, will help put out the flames
Maybe the light at the end of the tunnel ain’t a train
Maybe the light at the end of the tunnel ain’t a train

Intro

Let’s do yesterday again
Turn back the hands of time
And maybe in the morning
I’ll still be yours and you still mine
Let’s not worry about tomorrow
Tomorrow has to end
We both woke up here together
Let’s do yesterday again

Verse

Can you give me one good reason
Both still lying here
The fightins’ over now we’re even
We’ve said our peace we’ve shed our tears
If we’re holdin’ on to nothin’
Be nothing’ left to mend
We both know that it’s not over
Let’s do yesterday again

Who’s to say how longs’ forever
Or the time we’ll have to spend
Let’s not waste another minute
Let’s do yesterday again
We both know that we’re still in it
Let’s do yesterday again

Tell’em What It’s Like

Release Date:
October 19, 2019
Intro

Tell’em what it’s like Bec, because they think they want to know
Beyond the lights, beyond the show, what it is
Tell’em what it’s like Bec, to live with a man who’s never there
To wonder if he even cares when he’s gone
He’s always gone, here or there

Tell’em what it’s like Bec, to be someone some love to hate
Your pretty smile and all your grace, it wears you thin
Tell’em what it’s like Bec, when I’m curled up on the floor
And I can’t take it anymore and I’m a mess
Tell’em what it’s like

They can’t hear, they won’t believe
What it’s really like to love a man like me
But your actions they speak louder than some drunk girl in the crowd
Who wants to talk about how you make it when I leave
Tell’em what it’s like to love a man like me

They can’t hear, they won’t believe
What it’s really like to love a man like me
But my actions will speak louder than some drunk girl in the crowd
Who wants to talk about where I’m going when I leave
Tell’em what it’s like to love a man like me
You can be proud to love a man like me
Tell’em what it’s like to love a man like me

Think Like You Think

Release Date:
October 19, 2019
Intro

The good book holds the reasons
I believe the way I do
And all I needed to know
I was taught in Sunday school
But I lived like those rules
Were for everyone but me
With selfish disregard
For how it hurt my family

Verse

I staggered down the hall to our bed
She helped steady me and said
How can you think like you think
Turn around and drink like you drink
You can barely stand up when you kneel down to pray
How can you tell our children to be strong
And fight temptation in a world gone wrong
How can you think like you think and drink like you drink

Bless that girl that looks out for me
With the faith and the love of a saint
Give me the strength to make sure that she
Never again has to say

How can you think like you think and drink like you drink
You can barely stand up when you kneel down to pray
How can you tell our children to be strong
And fight temptation in a world gone wrong
How can you think like you think and drink like you drink
How can you think like you think and drink like you drink

William and Wanda

Release Date:
October 19, 2019
Intro

William, where you been?
I’ve been waiting on you since only God knows when
William, come on in
There’s so much to do, so glad to see you again

Verse

I haven’t been worried so much as I’ve been anxious
I haven’t been sad, for the reason in the rhyme
I haven’t been cryin’, that’s something that don’t happen
I believed you’d make it here in your sweet time

William, I’ve so much to say
I started us a garden when I got here that June day
William, c’mon this way
Meet our little boy that died on his birthday

We haven’t been worried so much as we’ve been anxious
We haven’t been sad, for the reason in the rhyme
We haven’t been cryin’, that’s something that don’t happen
I told em’ you’d be up here some sweet time

Wanda, quit pickin’ at me
I’ve been running late since 1953
Wanda, slow down just be
Hold my hand while I rock this boy to sleep

I haven’t been worried so much as I’ve been anxious
I’ve been sad but there’s redrawn in the rhyme
I’ve done a lot of crying, that’s something just happens
I hoped I’d make it up here some sweet time

One Good Decision

Release Date:
October 19, 2019
Intro

I’ve got one good decision to make tonight
And I’ll have every chance to keep it right
I’ve got a good woman at home
So I’ll be leaving here alone
Well I’ve got one good decision to make tonight

Verse

I can smoke and I can drink
Till I can hardly speak or think
I can stumble drunk my way across the floor
I can dance and act a fool upon that bar or on that stool
Choose to do damn near anything this side of those swinging doors

But I’ve got one good decision to make tonight
And I’ll have every chance to keep it right
I’ve got a good woman at home
So I’ll be leaving here alone
Well I’ve got one good decision to make tonight

You can try to catch my eye
Wonder if I’m so inclined
To allow my better judgment to go astray
But now wonderings all you’ll do
Cause I’ve got way too much to lose
One night of so called heaven
Ain’t worth the hell I’d pay

But I’ve got one good decision to make tonight
And I’ll have every chance to keep it right
I’ve got a good woman at home
So I’ll be leaving here alone
Well I’ve got one good decision to make tonight

Someone To You

Release Date:
October 19, 2019
Intro

I used to dream of fame and fortune
I used to wanna be a star
It was the greatest aspiration
In my naïve stubborn heart
But with the years I have grown wiser
Learned without love there’s no use
Now I’d rather be a no one
If I ain’t someone to you

Verse

I used to dream of fame and fortune
I used to wanna be a star
It was the greatest aspiration
In my naïve stubborn heart
But with the years I have grown wiser
Learned without love there ain’t no use
Now I’d rather be a no one
If I ain’t someone to you

I have traded many memories
I’ve gambled with my time
Along a jealous lonesome highway
All for a vision in my mind
I’ve lost friends and I’ve burned bridges
I’ve gone broke from payin’ dues
Now I’d rather be a no one
If I ain’t someone to you

Neon lights and crowded dancehalls
Make you wanna to go too far
Made my way out of the honkytonks
Just to learn they’re all bars
So if one day I finally make it
If this foolish dream comes true
Just know I’d rather be a no one
If I ain’t someone to you

Neon lights and crowded dancehalls
Make you wanna to go too far
Made my way out of the honkytonks
Just to learn they’re all bars
So if one day I finally make it
If this foolish dream comes true
Just know I’d rather be a no one
If I ain’t someone to you
I’d be better off a no one
If I ain’t someone to you

The Wanting

Release Date:
October 18, 2019
Intro

From the mornin’
Through the day
And on through the night
Like the stinging
Or the burning of a slowly turning knife
I ache now just to hold you
Make you feel my love
If only the wanting was enough

Verse

I may never live this feeling down
That’s the one sure thing I’ve found

Better lost in love
Than never tried at all
I have found, in this life
There’s are two ways can fall
I wish I could start it over
Wishing don’t mean much
If only the wanting was enough

I may never let this feeling down
That’s the one sure thing I’ve found

I wish I could start over
Wishing don’t mean much
If only the wanting was enough

I may never live this feeling down
That’s the one sure thing I’ve found
I may never live this feeling down
I can’t want you anymore

Same Kind Of Crazy As Me

Release Date:
October 18, 2019
Intro

I don’t go to church on Sunday
I don’t go to work on Monday
I sleep until I wake up
Whiskey in my coffee cup
And I take what the good Lord gave
That’s the shovel that digs my grave
I never really had a plan
But everybody knows where I stand
And, in all my friends I see
The same kind of crazy as me

Verse

There’s more colors than red and blue
To paint the elephant in the room
We piss and moan about that and this
Always another ass to kiss
But I believe that freedom rings
I believe in the songs we sing
I have a funny way you see
Of what the world might someday be
Why can’t they just let it be
The same kind of crazy as me

There ain’t a single thing we own
We’ll take with us when we’re gone
So I’ll just walk the earth a while
Lend a hand and leave a smile
And who knows how the whole thing ends
You can’t tell me where or when
So I’ll just pray that when I’m done
I meet the Father and the Son, and
If I’m right they’ll be
The same kind of crazy as me

There ain’t a single thing we own
We’ll take with us when we’re gone
So I’ll just walk the earth a while
Lend a hand and leave a smile
And who knows how the whole thing ends
You can’t tell me where or when
So I’ll just pray that when I’m done
I meet the Father and the Son, and
If I’m right they’ll be
The same kind of crazy as me
Same kind of crazy as me
Same kind of crazy as me
Same kind of crazy as me

Never Alone Always Lonely

Release Date:
October 18, 2019
Intro

Backside of thirty came fast, but what’s more
I can’t remember younger days like before and it’s a shame
I’ve done more runnin’ than most any age
Whole lot of prayin’ on the backside of a stage, scared to death
Wondering what’s next

Verse

And I take the long way around every time
As fast as I can through the comfort of night and it’s a fight
People who love me they suffer the most
See me on TV and all they see’s a ghost of someone they knew
They’re tellin’ the truth

Never alone always lonely
Easy to find, seldom seen
Never alone always lonely
On a fast train
Through a slow moving dream

Never alone always lonely
Easy to find seldom seen
Never alone always lonely
On a fast train
Through a slow moving dream
Never alone always lonely
Easy to find seldom seen
On a fast train
Through a slow moving dream

Whiskey

Release Date:
October 18, 2019
Intro

I’ve never been the kind to just turn and run
Never lost a battle with a loaded gun
Never been confused about who I am
Or what I think it takes for me to be a man

Verse

But lately it’s been hell just trying to get by
Livin’ like I’m livin’ on a borrowed dime
Watchin’ my friends as they’re all having fun
Whiskey won’t you help me make it through this one

Cause I don’t mind
I’ll sit here and keep on grinnin’, drowned my head and keep on livin’,
I don’t mind
Guess I’ll drink another bottle and drown another sorrow
I don’t mind
I can’t wait another minute, won’t you help me to forget it again

Well tonight’s been slower than it’s ever been
Staring at the clock at closing time again
The bartender tells me it’s time to go
Got a bottle of the venom waiting back at home

Come tomorrow I’ll probably buy some more
Black Label Even Williams from the liquor store
Back to the bar until my drinkins done
Whiskey won’t you help me make it through this one

Cause I don’t mind
I’ll sit here and keep on grinnin’, drowned my head and keep on livin’,
I don’t mind
Guess I’ll drink another bottle and drown another sorrow
I don’t mind
I can’t wait another minute, won’t you help me to forget it again

Cause I don’t mind
I’ll sit here and keep on grinnin’, drowned my head and keep on livin’,
I don’t mind

Where Even Angels Fear To Fly

Release Date:
October 18, 2019
Intro

Bastrop you don’t grow up, you just get raised
On Hellfire and Brimstone and Amazing Grace
The smell of stills and paper mills, you never quite escape
But I got away

Verse

I swore that I’d be done by 21
Staring down the wrong end of a gun
I’ve drank myself ungrateful and I found myself unwise
But I’m still alive
I’m still alive

And I have learned the hard way lessons
And I have made my own mistakes
I’ve drove headlong down some dead end roads, no honest man should take
But I’ve never been afraid to spread broken wings in skies
Where even angels fear to fly
Where even angels fear to fly

So damn sure of what I could not know
Knew too damn well of what wasn’t really so
I don’t conjure memories now, it’s best I just forget
So I’ve laid to rest
My regrets

I learned the hard way, the lessons
I have made my own mistakes
Drove headlong down some dead ends, no honest man should take
But I’ve never been afraid to spread broken wings in skies
Where angels fear to fly

And I have learned the hard way lessons
And I have made my own mistakes
I’ve drove headlong down some dead end roads, no honest man should take
But I’ve never been afraid to spread broken wings in skies
Where even angels fear to fly
Where even angels fear to fly

Which One I Feed

Release Date:
October 18, 2019
Intro

I am the river that flows through my veins
I am the black crow, I’m wings of change
I am the rock that the rain couldn’t conquer
I’m above, I’m below, I am hell and high water

Verse

I’ve been the song carried in on the breeze
I’ve wept with willows and I’ve fell with the leaves
I am the badlands and the silence it holds
A warrior who walks but is never alone

There’s a black and a white wolf in me
And I live and I die
By which one I feed
It’s a war old as time, this fighting inside
And I live and I die,
By which one I feed

I am the hunted and I am the hunter
I am the feast and the famine, the hunger
I am the eagle screaming for peace
While the beasts on the inside sharpen their teeth

There’s a black and a white wolf in me
And I live and I die
By which one I feed
It’s a war old as time, this fighting inside
And I live and I die,
By which one I feed

There’s a black and a white wolf in me
And I live and I die
By which one I feed
It’s a war old as time, this fighting inside
And I live and I die,
By which one I feed
Which one I feed

I am the river that flows through my veins
I am the black crow, I’m wings of change

I need a drink Lord, from that cup
I need something to fill me up
When the cards have all been shown

I need a sunny day, but clouds are more my style
My soul hungers for more than I can eat
Give me a new day and a bite of something sweet

I need to lie down and rest for a while

But I guess whatever will be, will be
Mama this highways gonna kill me

Woman, I wish I couldn’t hurt you
And woman, It’s clear I don’t deserve you
I know it seems I only need you when I ain’t got nowhere else to turn too
So woman, I wish I wouldn’t hurt you

I’m sure there’s some relief in giving up and moving on
And sometimes it seems way too much to work through
Woman I never meant to hurt you

Lord, I beg of you protect me
Cause lately, swear the devil’s out to get me
It ain’t a leap of faith to say he always prays upon the unsuspecting
So Lord, I beg of you protect me

I can’t walk with you if the devil got my hand
I hope you have my back and direct me
Jesus I beg of you protect me
Jesus, don’t let’em get me

It Don’t Rain In California

Release Date:
October 18, 2019
Intro

She can’t do this, anymore
She bought a ticket west and left me staring down the storm
Now I’m sittin’ here, all alone
In an empty house that used to be a happy home
She said she needed sunshine
She had enough of clouds
I knew it wouldn’t take too long, for her to figure out.

Verse

It don’t rain in California
You won’t see a single storm cloud in the sky
It’s always clear, so there won’t be any tears
Leave you standin’ in the downpour trying to hide
It don’t rain in California, like it’s raining here tonight

I can’t do this, anymore
I hopped a plane and I found my way to the California shore
Now we sittin’ here, all alone
You knew that I was comin’, you sounded happy on the phone
I knew you needed sunshine,
It seems I brought the clouds
The thunder and the lightning seem to follow me around

It don’t rain in California
You won’t see a single storm cloud in the sky
It’s always clear, so there won’t be any tears
Leave you standin’ in the downpour trying to hide
It don’t rain in California, like it’s raining here tonight
It don’t rain in California, like it’s raining here tonight

Wounded Mind

Release Date:
October 18, 2019
Intro

I feel their eyes upon me, as I walk across the room
I can hear em’ all whispering my name
So I tuck in my shoulders and hide the best I can
It all happened so fast I can’t explain
But if I had to

Verse

I’d tell em’ all I really ain’t that special
And I’d cry and yell leave me the hell alone
And I hate it that I have to try to be cool all the time
I’m just a guy, with a wounded mind

I put on my costume and I put on a show
The only way a jester stays alive
All they see is glitter and all they hear are rhymes
If I could find a new way to survive
I’d be glad to

Tell em’ all I really ain’t that special
And I’d cry and yell leave me the hell alone
And I hate it that I have to try to be cool all the time
I’m just a guy, with a wounded mind

And I hate it that I have to try to be cool all the time
I’m just a guy, with a wounded mind

And I’d tell em’ all I really ain’t that special
And I’d cry and yell leave me the hell alone
And I hate it that I have to try to be cool all the time
I’m just a guy, with a wounded mind

Ramble

Release Date:
October 18, 2019
Intro

Ramble, when this world gives you more than you can handle
You get on those two wheels and you fly to outer space
Like your in a one man race
Never thinking about tomorrow, you beg, steal, you borrow

Verse

And you gamble, you gamble with your love like you don’t need it
And when it’s said and done you’ll be alone out on the road
Shaking off the cold
No one to keep you warm, I guess you were born to ramble

Freedom, you say all you ever wanted was your freedom
But is it worth the cost of never calling one place home
Always going, going, gone
Nowhere to rest your bones, but you keep on believing 

Believing in some kind of magic potion
The one that makes you feel like you ain’t never gonna die
The one that makes you cry
Then leaves you in that haze, I guess you will always ramble

Ramble, when this world gives you more than you can handle
You get on those two wheels and go back to outer space
Win that one man race
Don’t worry bout tomorrow, out run your sorrows and ramble

The Raven And The Dove

Release Date:
October 18, 2019
Intro

I have prayed for wisdom, now I pray for peace
It seems the more I know now, the less that I can sleep
Stay imprisoned in my conscience, trying to figure what it means
To be caught between a nightmare and the sweetest of dreams

Verse

Some days a raven, some days a dove
Some days the dark cloud hanging round
Others from the light above
I’m scuffed by the devil, but I’m washed up in the blood
Some days a raven, some days a dove

You may question how I’m living, it might scare you half to death
I’ve been forgive for my sinning, Lord knows I ain’t through sinning yet
I get my singing from my mama, I get the fight from my old man
I don’t always know where I’m going, but I know exactly what I am

Some days a raven, some days a dove
Some days the dark cloud hanging round
Others from the light above
I’m scuffed by the devil, but I’m washed up in the blood
Some days a raven, some days a dove

Some days a raven, some days a dove
Some days the dark cloud hanging round
Others from the light above
I’m scuffed by the devil, but I’m washed up in the blood
Some days a raven, some days a dove
Some days a raven, some days a dove

Must Be The Whiskey

Release Date:
July 27, 2018
Intro

No I’m not goin’ crazy, but lately my head and my heart
Seem to be at least a million miles apart
My heart says to love ya, my head says to run
It’s like my heart is too afraid to tell my head what it’s done
I know that it can never be the way it was
Even though you’ll be the death of me I can’t give you up
Too much is not enough; it’s not the love, it’s not the lust that grips me
It must be the whiskey

Verse

I’ve been drinkin’ to remember and drinkin’ to forget
I got “I love you” on my mind, I got Jim Beam on my breath
And loneliness has got the rest, I’ve got nothin’ left within me
It must be the whiskey

Oh I’m not goin’ crazy, but lately these thoughts in my head
Are a whirlwind of a world of a million regrets
All the things I should’ve done, all the things I should’ve said
All the pain that comes with hatin’ the mess you’ve made of yourself
I know I’m chasin’ rainbows thinkin’ I could make it work
But the fact is that my actions speak louder than my words
And it only makes it worse thinkin’ of her, thinkin’ she’ll forgive me
It must be the whiskey

I’ve been drinkin’ to remember and drinkin’ to forget
I got “I love you” on my mind, I got Jim Beam on my breath
And loneliness has got the rest, I’ve got nothin’ left within me
It must be the whiskey

I’ve been drinkin’ to remember and drinkin’ to forget
I got “I love you” on my mind, I got Jim Beam on my breath
And loneliness has got the rest, I’ve got nothin’ left within me
Sometimes it hits me whenever I’m a little tipsy
Oh, it hits me whenever I’m a little tipsy
It must be the whiskey

It must be the whiskey
It must be the whiskey
It’s that whiskey
It must be the whiskey

Somewhere Between I Love You and I’m Leavin’

Release Date:
July 27, 2018
Intro

I’m somewhere between I love you and I’m leavin’
Somewhere between I need you and lettin’ go
And it scares me so when I look hard I find no good reasons
I’m somewhere between I love you and I’m leavin’

Verse

Somewhere between I miss you and I’m gone
Runnin’ hard through the middle of the night, and you spend yours alone
I hold you close then I let you go, no leavin’ well-enough alone
I’m somewhere between I miss you and I’m gone

And the ties that bind, they hold my mind
No matter where I go, I’m alone
Here with you or out there tearin’ down some road
Nowhere is home
And you’re the only thing on earth that I believe in
I’m somewhere between I love you and I’m leavin’

And the ties that bind, they hold my mind
No matter where I go, I’m alone
Here with you or out there tearin’ down some road
Nowhere is home
And you’re the only thing on earth that I believe in
I can stay or I can go and not break even
I’m somewhere between I love you and I’m leavin’
I’m somewhere between I love you and I’m leavin’

Holy Water

Release Date:
July 27, 2018
Intro

I walk around on pins and needles
Around people I can’t even name
I keep on passin’ church steeples
Prayin’ that my God is still the same
I been wanderin’ like a fool too blind to see
Maybe it ain’t the bottle that I need

Verse

I need a shot of holy water
I need it to chase down my demons
And burn ’em just a little bit hotter
I’ve been havin’ drinks with the devil in this neon town
I need a shot of holy water to wash it down

Lost in a land of smoke and mirrors
I do my best to just stay clear of my yesterdays
I’ve been runnin’ so long, now I’m runnin’ from myself
Tired of runnin’ away
I’m still tryin’ to get through to the man I wanna be
Maybe I’m not so gone that I can’t see

I need a shot of holy water
I need it to chase down my demons
And burn ’em just a little bit hotter
I’ve been havin’ drinks with the devil in this neon town
I need a shot of holy water to wash it down

I need a shot of holy water
I need a shot of holy water
I need a shot of holy water
I need a shot of holy water

I need a shot of holy water
I need it to chase down my demons
And burn ’em just a little bit hotter
I’ve been havin’ drinks with the devil in this neon town
I need a shot of holy water to wash it down

(Holy, holy water)
I need a shot of holy water (holy, holy water)
I need a shot of holy water (holy, holy water)
(Holy, holy water)
(Holy, holy water)
(Holy, holy water)
(Holy, holy water)

Lifers

Release Date:
July 27, 2018
Intro

He wakes with the chickens and the Waco sun
He’s got mouths to feed and cattle to run
Same as his daddy and his daddy done
It’s all he’s ever known
In this modern world movin’ break-neck fast
He’s a dyin’ breed, a thing of the past
He’ll be damned if he don’t hit back
If you stand in his way
When there’s nothin’ more to say

Verse

So here’s to the lifers
The struggle-and-strifers
Workin’ long after the day is done
Here’s to the throw-backs
The cowboys in old hats
The last of the great generation
It seems they still dream

She’s a renaissance girl with a fire in her soul
She’s got a pocket full of nothin’, nobody tells her no
She flew into town twenty years ago
With a guitar and a song
She’s been playin’ them rooms but she ain’t got far
Been livin’ off tips in them Broadway bars
She’s a troubadour queen but time left its mark
The scene’s passed her by
In a world that’s passed her by

So here’s to the lifers
The struggle-and-strifers
Workin’ long after the day is done
Here’s to the throw-backs
The cowboys in old hats
The last of the great generation
It seems they still dream

No they don’t give up and they don’t give in
When things don’t go their way
Yeah we’re getting’ knocked down
Yeah we’re getting’ back up
Live to die another day

So here’s to the lifers
The struggle-and-strifers
Workin’ long after the day is done
Here’s to the throw-backs
The cowboys in old hats
The last of the great generation
It seems they still dream

Big Last Name

Release Date:
July 27, 2018
Intro

Daddy must’ve told her when she was sixteen
Don’t settle for a poor man’s diamond ring
Take a lesson from your mama, girl, it ain’t no shame
To find a man with some money and a big last name

Verse

She wore that crown at the Rose Parade
All them boys starin’ at her thinkin’ maybe someday
All their credit put together couldn’t get her to the game
She wants a man with some money and a big last name

She’s had the pick of the litter since the day she was born
Ain’t nothin’ good enough in this town
She’s a product of her mama, she gets what she wants
Ain’t layin’ that silver spoon down
She wants to be in a picture in a gold-leaf frame
With a man with some money and a big last name

She’s had the pick of the litter since the day she was born
Ain’t nothin’ good enough in this town
She’s a product of her mama, she gets what she wants
Ain’t layin’ that silver spoon down
She wants to be in a picture in a gold-leaf frame
With a man with some money and a big last name
Man with some money and a big last name

Well she met a rich banker down in San Antone
He had a pre-nup ready for her name to be on
The she came home early to a pretty young thing
In bed with some money and a big last name
In bed with some money and a big last name
In bed with some money and a big last name

Desert Wind

Release Date:
July 27, 2018
Intro

The city lights
Ain’t treatin’ me right
On this side of the wall
I’m thinkin’ it’s time
To turn on a dime
For the Sierra Madre call
I caught wind
From a friend of a friend
Of mighty wealth untold
If the stories are true
Nothin’ left to do
But head down to Mexico

Verse

Desert wind
Blowin’ me away again
Now you’re my only friend
I’ve got left to call

Bought a two-bit mule
From a horse-theivin’ fool
To cross the Rio Grande alone
I had to steer clear
But I had not a fear
Where the federale roamed
Once I was through
I knew what to do
Had to send that old mule home
I’m now on the trail
That lead most to hell
After Pancho Villa’s gold

Desert wind
Blowin’ me away again
Now you’re my only friend
I’ve got left to call

Desert wind
Blowin’ me away again
Now you’re my only friend
I’ve got left to call

Followed the words
That I’d been told
Amongst the hillside shadows cold
When I talked to him
I caught a chill
For the cavern it did hold
The answers to questions that I never had
With riches I could hold
But truth of a man ain’t built with hands or Pancho Villa’s gold

It’s that desert wind
Blowin’ me home again
Now you’re the only friend
That I’ll ever call

It’s that desert wind
Blowin’ me home again
Now you’re the only friend
I’ll ever call

Colorado

Release Date:

Intro

Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
It’s about the only thing I ever do
Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
Don’t think I ain’t thinkin’ ’bout you

Verse

Even though our love might’ve gone down burnin’
Like the sunset on the mountains out in Vail
And our best days might have been some I’d forgotten
But our worst days I remember much too well

Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
It’s about the only thing I ever do
Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
Don’t think I ain’t thinkin’ ’bout you

I look back to when we carved our names in marble
On an aspen by the cabin where we stayed
And I wonder if that tree’s still strong and standin’
Despite the broken promises we made

Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
It’s about the only thing I ever do
Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
Don’t think I ain’t thinkin’ ’bout you

Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
It’s about the only thing I ever do
Don’t think that I don’t think about Colorado
Don’t think I ain’t thinkin’ ’bout you
Don’t think I ain’t thinkin’ ’bout you

Can’t Quit Enough

Release Date:
July 27, 2018
Intro

I’ve played every honky tonk and roadside bar and juke joint
Between here and Minneapolis
You know I’ve lived these miles
There’s a Haggard man behind these eyes and smile

Verse

I picked up the guitar ’round the time I turned fourteen
Lit that fire, been burnin’ tires, hard booze, both ends and gasoline
Stayin’ wired
Come back down the best that we know how
We know now

We’re all tryin’ to quit smokin’
Tired of laughin’, tired of jokin’
‘Bout the habits we all have slowly creepin’ up
We all gotta die from somethin’
Livin’ kills you, life is tough
But I can’t quit ’cause I can’t quit enough

I’ve felt all the pressures playin’ to an empty room
And the pleasures of a crowd that’s singin’ loud to every word to all my songs
But the band and me, Lord, keep rollin’ on
We roll on

We’re all tryin’ to quit smokin’
Tired of laughin’, tired of jokin’
‘Bout the habits we all have slowly creepin’ up
We all gotta die from somethin’
Livin’ kills you, life is tough
But I can’t quit ’cause I can’t quit enough

We’re all tryin’ to quit smokin’
Tired of laughin’, tired of jokin’
‘Bout the habits we all have slowly creepin’ up
We all gotta die from somethin’
Livin’ kills you, life is tough
But I can’t quit cause I can’t quit enough
I’ll never quit cause I can’t quit enough

7th Floor

Release Date:
July 27, 2018
Intro

From the 7th floor window sometimes I swear I see it all
From which way the wind blows to how we’re all bound to fall
Doesn’t make much sense, the crazy things I do
Under the influence of the pain that I’ve been through
To get to you

Verse

It’s what I do
To get to you

I shook hands with deception when I saw through their empty eyes
I broke bread with the burdens of everything that I despise
Dug my own graves and I’ve thrown caution to the wind
Become a slave to the wicked ways of men
To get to you

It’s what I do
To get to you
It’s what I do
To get to you

I wish I hadn’t waged the wars on the weakness of my fears
But it was worth the wait just to be standin’ here
Singin’ to the heavens as they fill up my mind
Standin’ on the 7th floor of everything I left behind
To get to you

It’s what I do
To get to you
It’s what I do
To get to you

It’s what I do
To get to you
It’s what I do
To get to you

It’s what I do
To get to you
It’s what I do
To get to you

From the 7th floor window sometimes I swear I see it all
From which way the wind blows to how we’re all bound to fall

Intro

Who’s this stranger in the mirror
The one that’s lookin’ back at me?
He ain’t familiar, I don’t know this guy
Who in the world could it be?
It ain’t me, there ain’t no way
And the stranger, gettin’ stranger everyday

Verse

The guy I’m lookin’ for, he’s a young man
He ain’t scarred-up and gettin’ old
He’s a good kid from the country
Your eyes are big-city-cold
It ain’t me, there ain’t no way
And the stranger, gettin’ stranger everyday

Maybe I’m goin’ crazy
Could be losin’ my mind
Lookin’ for someone familiar
That I knew one time

The stranger, hear me talkin’
Listen up to what I have to say
Waitin’ for an answer… silence
And the stranger, is gettin’ stranger every day

Maybe I’m goin’ crazy
Could be losin’ my mind
Lookin’ for someone familiar
That I knew one time

Who’s this stranger in the mirror

Head Case

Release Date:
July 27, 2018
Intro

I know it’s hard to find the words so often standin’ face-to-face
Sometimes it takes a thin white sheet to put things into place
Things that I could never say come floodin’ out somehow upon these lines

Verse

I’m still fightin’ the same battles I’ve been fightin’ all these years
A dreamer is not a dreamer unless you’re livin’ with a fear
What they say will be forgotten, all that’s done will be for naught
And why

And it’s been a long time, Lord, since I sat down and had a cry
It’s sometimes overwhelmin’ and I can’t tell ya why
But I remember Jackson singin’ “Doctor, doctor, please
My eyes

And my heroes, they’re all dyin’ or they’re sittin’ in a cell
Due to years of medicatin’ minds that hurt so well
There’s a thin line, don’t you see, between genius and insanity
Which am I

One thing that scares the hell in me is livin’ with mortality
And worryin’ that I’m insane talkin’ to a God unseen
Must surely make me crazy, so crazy’s what I’ll be
‘Til I’m gone
‘Til I’m gone

And I’ll scream out to the sun and to the moon and to the stars
I’ll scream until my voice finds you, no matter where you are
I’ll scream until I’ve got no breath and all that’s left to take is death
And I’m done
When I’m done
Oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh

No Time

Release Date:
November 17, 2017
Intro

Burning the candle at both ends leaves no time to think
To kill one flame
It’s to slow the burn
Hittin’ it hard every night when the sun goes down my girl
You know I’m always around
I’m in some other town

Verse

I can’t say where I’ll be, come this time next week
I know I won’t be here
I know I won’t be home
I’ve lost so much of myself, I wonder now
Am I really what, all these people see

I’ve got no time to think, the time that I’ve let go
I’ve got no time to think, the time you’ve spent alone
I’ve got no time to think of the years I know all the times with you how they come and go
Got no time to think, the time that I’ve let go

Ten years gone and I’m on my way to a million miles
You know they don’t come free
You know they roll by slow
I’d be lyin’ if I said that I did not love my work
You know I love you too
Now it’s time to go

I’ve got no time to think, the time that I’ve let go
I’ve got no time to think, the time you’ve spent alone
I’ve got no time to think of the years I know all the times with you how they come and go
Got no time to think, the time that I’ve let go

I’ve got no time to think, the time that I’ve let go
I’ve got no time to think, the time you’ve spent alone
I’ve got no time to think of the years I know all the times with you how they come and go

Wake Up Becki

Release Date:
November 17, 2017
Intro

Wake up Becki
I’ve got something to say
Listen to me
Let’s try this one more day
I know it’s late now
But you know I just can’t sleep
Wake up Becki
Won’t you talk with me

Verse

Wake up Becki
Oh now listen to me please
Understand now
I’m down on my knees
You gotta believe me
When I say my love is true
Wake up Becki
All I want is you

I need to hear your voice, you know I’m all alone
And this is what I’d say to you, if you’d pick up that phone
You must be fast asleep not thinking about me or you’re already gone
Wake up Becki
Becki I’m almost home

Wake up Becki
Oh I know it’s been too long
Since I’ve held you
And I know you’ve been strong
Don’t you worry
I may be gone for a week or two
Wake up Becki
I’m coming home to you

I need to hear your voice, you know I’m all alone
And this is what I’d say to you, if you’d pick up that phone
You must be fast asleep not thinking about me or you’re already gone
Wake up Becki
Becki I’m almost home

Hippies and Cowboys

Release Date:
November 17, 2017
Intro

Well I started on the whiskey pretty early this morning
That’s alright, I was up all night
But I passed out before the sun came up
I really wanted to see one of those
I know that’s no way for a man to behave
With a mortgage due and a baby on the way
But somehow I made it to where I’m at
It’s been a living as a matter of fact

Verse

I get a bad attitude from being tired and running ‘round
I never ask for anyone to say they like my sound
I’ve never been a part of any musical scene
I ain’t just talking Nashville, if you know what I mean
They don’t write about me, in their magazines
And I don’t ask for no reviews on the songs that I sing
I never had a lot of friends and I’m alright by that
But people keep on coming back

Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
They don’t care about no trends
They don’t care about songs that sell
Yeah, tomorrow I’ll be gone
So tonight everybody just sing along
Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys

I’ve been standing on the outside for all of my life
But I like the view, I’m not gonna lie
Yeah, the yuppies and the hipsters and the wannabe scenes
That ain’t down home to me
I like two dollar beers, I like three dollar wells
At some old honky tonk bar that I know by the smell
Some old drunk on a bar stool on a Merle Haggard tune
That’s my kind of room

Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
They don’t care about no trends
They don’t care about songs that sell
Yeah, tomorrow I’ll be gone
So tonight everybody just sing along
Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys

Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
They don’t care about no trends
They don’t care about songs that sell
Yeah, tomorrow I’ll be gone
So tonight everybody just sing along
Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
And I’ll be raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys

Somewhere in the Middle

Release Date:
November 17, 2017
Intro

Couldn’t have ever dawned on me
All the things that I would be I
I never really looked out quite that far
It’s never been a simple thing
To see the world with a young man’s brain, with
An old man’s heart, restless soul

Verse

Yeah, my family went broke in my eighteenth year
Dad took a job many miles from here that
That was alright by me I was on my own
I had a band, found a job, life was alright
I worked when I had to, we played all the time, only
Got through that first year of college, alright

But I learned more on the freight docks
Driving forklifts on the 3 o’clock
AM shift In the winter time, man it got cold
Selling guitars on the west coast
Going hungry, chasin’ ghost around and around we would go
And I saw it all tendin’ bar at night
Treatin’ saints and sinners right
It’s a good thing to do all the time
You never know who you’re talkin’ to
But always know who’s watching you
Keep your feet movin’ straight down the line

I’ve known a lot of real good men
Grad school or no school
I’ve called em’ my friends, I’m
I’m Somewhere in the Middle and that’s just fine
No, I don’t give a damn how much money you make
If your last shirt has pockets, take all you can take, I’m
I’m goin’ out with nothin’ like I came in

Cause I learned more on the freight docks
Driving forklifts on the 3 o’clock
AM shift In the winter time, man it got cold
Selling guitars on the west coast
Going hungry, chasin’ ghost around and around we would go
And I saw it all tendin’ bar at night
Treatin’ saints and sinners right
It’s a good thing, to do all the time
You never know who you’re talkin’ to
But always know who’s watching you
Keep your feet movin’ straight down the line

But I learned more on the freight docks
Driving forklifts on the 3 o’clock
AM shift In the winter time, man it got cold

Been Around

Release Date:
November 17, 2017
Intro

I don’t run from guilt you see my conscience lets me know at least a thousand times or better every day
Things I’ve done mistakes I’ve made, raised feelings I’ll lay in some grave if ever I am finally laid to rest

Verse

If there’s time to pray before I die, I pray dear Lord you know that I was a righteous man that somehow lost his way
Face me down when I shall pass so the world can kiss my ass and Hell can’t come and get me from behind

I’ve danced in the flames and I’ve been burned
I’ve walked on the harder side of life, I’ve takin’ all the wrong turns
I’ve been around
I’ve been down
And I’ve been wasted
I fight with myself
sometimes I lose
I got me an angel on my shoulder, but I’ve got the devil too, I get down
I get around and I get wasted

Twenty-seven years along I’ve tried to make them right all wrong and I’ve nearly died a few times on my way
Well I’ve seen the face of God first hand and I’ve danced with the devil man, I’ve needed help and grab for both of their hands

I’ve danced in the flames and I’ve been burned
I’ve walked on the harder side of life, I’ve takin’ all the wrong turns
I’ve been around
I’ve been down
And I’ve been wasted
I fight with myself, sometimes I lose
I got me an angel on my shoulder, but I’ve got the devil too, I get down
I get around and I get wasted

I fight with myself
Sometimes I lose
I got me an angel on my shoulder, but I’ve got the devil too
I get down I get around and I get wasted

I don’t run from guilt you see my conscience lets me know at least a thousand times or better every day

65 Days in LA

Release Date:
November 17, 2017
Intro

All I did was drink all day in that hell they call L.A.
A southern born man wants a gun in his hand
When he sees how they run that place
Never say I’m better than anyone
Cause Lord knows that I’m not
But that California summer wasn’t that hot

Verse

We went out there searchin’ for something
Instead we all got lost
We were headin’ out west and the plans were goin’ south
Never counted no cost
By the time I hit Arizona I was on my way to see
65 days in L.A. is enough for me

And I would drink ’till the sun came up
And I was tryin’ to find myself
But it’s hard to find yourself in a state like that
I was born a runnin’ man and anywhere I’m free
But 65 days in L.A. is enough for me

Been a few good folks out there, any and everywhere
We were runnin’ down the same things, all about insane
Thinkin’ we’d find them out there
Steppin’ over bums on the sidewalk
To get back to my front door
And by the middle of August, couldn’t take any more

So I loaded up what little I had left
And I bought two packs of smokes
I was haulin’ back to my girl, all back to my own
I was born a runnin’ man and anywhere I’m free
But 65 days in L.A. is enough for me
65 days anywhere is too much for me
Too much for me

Last Call for the Blues

Release Date:
November 17, 2017
Intro

You’re good for nothing
It’s what they always say
I can’t say no different
look at me today
Always in and out of trouble
An enemy of the state
Why can’t I get my act together
Dollar short, a day late

Verse

And they say why you don’t quit drinkin’
You’re always acting like a clown
We all see your ships been sinkin’
Just slowly goin’ down
You’ve been runnin’ for so long
You ain’t got no time to lose
You better right in all your wrongs
Last call for the blues

Yeah the first step, it’s admitting
Then it’s one day at a time
Don’t you dare deny it
You’re way past your prime
You better start to look ahead
What’s done is dead and gone
There ain’t no wisdom in that whiskey
There’s only sadness in your song

And they say why you don’t quit drinkin’
You’re always acting like a clown
We all see your ships been sinkin’
Just slowly goin’ down
You’ve been runnin’ for so long
You ain’t got no time to lose
You better right in all your wrongs
Last call for the blues

And they say why you don’t quit drinkin’
You’re always acting like a clown
We all see your ships been sinkin’
Just slowly goin’ down
You’ve been runnin’ for so long
You ain’t got no time to lose
You better right in all your wrongs
Last call for the blues

You better right in all your wrongs
Last call for the blues

Curse the Sky

Release Date:
November 17, 2017
Intro

Sometimes in the summer, it’ll lightnin’, it’ll thunder
But the rain don’t seem to come it rolls on by
Thunder sounds like laughter, as the lightning hits the pasture
And you know that land has been dry for some time

Verse

And it burns and it burns, oh it burns

The river it stopped flowin’ back through town some time ago
And the train tracks rest below a bed of weeds
The truck stop shut its door on the day that oil hit a hundred and four dollars a barrel
Ya’ll then the grocery store came next and then the bank

And it burns oh it burns, it burns
Oh it burns, yeah it burns, oh it burns

You do the things you know to just to make it day by day
You can hear the kids a cryin’, but there’s just no time to play.
You work the way you know how just the way you’ve always done
and you’d like to curse the skies that bring no rain and block the sun

And it burns

Sometimes when it’s rainin’ and there seems there ain’t no stoppin’
aand a storm surge rushes past and all goes down
That river roars with laughter as it strips away the pasture land the home you built
And work for your own hands

And it rains, oh it rains, yeah it rains
And it rains, oh it rains, yeah it rains

You do the things you know to just to make it by the day
You can hear the kids a cryin’ but there’s just no time to play
you work the way you know how just the way you’ve always done
and you’d like to curse the skies that bring the rain and block the sun and it rains

And it rains

Sometimes in the summer it’ll lightnin’, it’ll thunder
But the rain don’t seem to come it rolls on by

I’d rather see you all alone

And sleep is good when you can get it

Verse

And I’m gonna die or I’m gonna choke it’s true
I’m still not done with you
Oh no, I’m still not done with you

The big screen waits for you Virginia

This place just wouldn’t let go of me
Every road and every stop light
I see your face on a good night

Less Wise

Release Date:
November 17, 2017
Intro

Time is gold and it only goes by in waves of strangers
Along the way sometimes strangers make your friends
Well I’m gettin’ old and my friends don’t come around like they used to
We’ve stopped actin’ like we’ve got somethin’ to prove

Verse

My old friend Jake, yeah man, we made some noise in those barrooms
Who’d have thought he’d be the first one with a son
And I like to think that guy we all call McKinney
He was there at my worst and Lord knows he’s helped me on
It’s been a few years since I, seen that Matthews boy
He’s still livin’ down in Houston, still never callin’ back when I phone
Every now and then I’ll stop and I’ll have a few with Vinny
You know we laugh about the old times, at least those we recall

It’s always, c’est la vi,
Try not, to miss the forest for the trees
And now we’re, what we did not think we’d be
A little bit older, a little less wise
You get a little older and a lot less wise

Time is gold and it only goes by in waves of strangers

Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound Unreleased

Release Date:
November 17, 2017
Intro

I’ve got a good woman at home
Who thinks I do no wrong
But sometimes, Lord, she just ain’t always around
And you know that’s when I fall
Now I can’t help myself at all
And I’ll get whiskey bent and hell bound

Verse

Play me some songs about a ramblin’ man
Put a cold one in my hand
‘Cause you know I love to hear those guitar sounds
Don’t you play, I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry
‘Cause I’ll get all balled up inside
And I’ll get whiskey bent and hell bound

Sure enough about closin’ time
About stoned out of my mind
And I end up with some honky tonk special I found
Just as sure as the mornin sun comes
Thinking of my sweet girl at home
And I’ll get whiskey bent and hell bound

Play me the songs about ramblin’ man
Put old Jim Beam in my hand
‘Cause you know I still love to get drunk
And hear country sounds
But don’t you play, Your Cheatin’ Heart
‘Cause that’ll tear me all apart
I’ll get whiskey bent and hell bound
Yeah, old Hank’s songs
Always make me feel low down

The Same

Release Date:
August 16, 2016
Intro

I heard good to see, those lights were sure bright tonight
That bittersweet voice took me back, another time
She said, after all this while, it’s good to see you doin’ fine
Well that’s a funny thing to hear, after the last time
I recall the choice you made, the words you chose back then
It killed me for a long, long time, were we ever friends
I said, you came here to see, if time had rearranged
The same old game, I’m still the same

Verse

Same old bar, same guitars, same old stars
That light my day
It’s gettin’ better to not feel ruined
But you know I do anyway
I really don’t know what you’re doing here
What you want, or why you came
It’s gettin’ late now and I gotta go
Since you asked, I’m still the same
I’m still the same

I really don’t know what you’re doing here
Or what you want
Or why you came
It’s gettin’ late now and I gotta go
But since you asked
I’m still the same
I’m still the same
I’m still the same

Intro

I’m not the devil you think that I am
It ain’t no excuse, but I’m just a man
I slipped and I fell, it got outta hand
But I’m not the devil you think that I am

Verse

It wasn’t no gun, held to my head
I got caught up believing, in lies that were said
In a moment of weakness
I stumbled and I made my bed

I’m not the devil you think that I am
It ain’t no excuse, but I’m just a man
I slipped and I fell, it got outta hand
But I’m not the devil you think that I am

There’s 10,000 reasons
For you not to stay
And no one would blame you
If you want it that way
It might take some time
But I’ll show, you that I’m worth the wait

I’m not the devil you think that I am
It ain’t no excuse, but I’m just a man
I slipped and I fell, it got outta hand
But I’m not the devil you think that I am
And I’ll spend forever, do all that I can
To prove I’m Not The Devil you think that I am
And I’m not the devil

Intro

And it’s gonna get hard, for it gets easy, I oughta know
I hear the voice of Jesus and I hear the devil talkin’
Just the same
And it seems they’re tryin’ to talk over each other
Any given day
I’ve lived the words in red so many times
By now I thought that I might see
I guess I’m sayin’ this life just ain’t the way
I thought that it might be

Verse

I been wanderin’ down the hallways
Ya’ll roads just like some kid out skippin’ school
By the time that I was seventeen
I figured I was done with all the rules
I turn 35 this year and I’m still runnin’ hard
For somethin’ I can’t see
The only thing in life that’s guaranteed
There are no guarantees

And it’s gonna get hard for it gets easy, I oughta know
It’s gonna take a lotta rain, for the seed you planted, starts to grow
The more I know, the more I know that I don’t know
I know nothin’s free
And there ain’t no guarantees

The more I know, the more I know that I don’t know
I know nothin’s free
And there ain’t no guarantees
And it’s gonna get hard for it gets easy, I oughta know
It’s gonna take a lotta rain, for the seed you planted, starts to grow
The more I know, the more I know that I don’t know
I know nothin’s free

Intro

My whole view of the word has changed
I guess that comes with age
I don’t believe there’s good in every man
Like I did back then

Verse

I may drink more than I should
You’ve seen me on the floor
Spend my lifetime in this cage, I built around me
Bangin’ on the doors

And no words
Could ever say how much I need you
With you here
You make this life I lead worth living

Heaven knows I broke your heart
I can’t take that away
All I’m worth is just this promise that I’ve made to you
To stand beside you just like you have stood beside me

And no words
Could ever say how much I need you
With you here
You make this life I lead worth living

You could be much better off
God knows without me
And that’s why
I just can’t find the words

You could be much better off
God knows without me
And that’s why
I just can’t find the words

Give All You Can

Release Date:
August 16, 2016
Intro

The dark places I go
Ain’t just on the road
‘Tween the lines, ‘tween the years it’s the same
Never did understand
As a much younger man
Why I felt such a need to go

Verse

But I learned that it’s all in my head
I can’t stop whatever’s turnin’, with that being said

I got a bad tortured soul
For reasons I don’t know
Guess for some, it’s just meant to be
But I remember Mathew 5
And I’m thankful to be alive
And I know those people on that mountain were a lot like me

I’ve been down and not had a dollar to my name
But there’s angels there that got me through, and I can do the same

When you give all you can
When you give all you can
When you give all you can, give some more
Till you spend all your time
Till you spend your last dime
Tell me brother, what are you livin for
What are you livin for

I’ve been down and not had a dollar to my name
But there’s angels there that got me through
Hell, I can do the same

When you give all you can
When you give all you can
When you give all you can, give some more
Till you spend all your time
Till you spend your last dime
Tell me brother, what are you livin for
What are you livin for
What are you livin for
What are you livin for
What are you livin for
What are you livin for?
Give all you can
What are you livin for?
What are you livin for?
Give all you can
What are you livin for?
What are you livin for?
What are you livin for?

Doors open when she smiles
She moves mountains with her mind
She’s all mine
She’s all mine

Verse

She’s that Fort Worth Texas girl
She’s every girl in the world
She’s all mine
She’s all mine

The Devil tells me lies most every night
But I don’t wander through the darkness
She’s my light

She’s an angel with no disguise
Lord knows I’ve made her cry
But she’s still mine
She’s all mine

If it can be done son, she can
She makes me a better man
She’s all mine
She’s all mine

The Devil tells me lies most every night
But I don’t wander through the darkness
She’s my light

She might tell you it’s not that hard, that’s her lie
If there’s one thing to hold against her, it is I

The Devil tells me lies, most every night
I don’t wander through the darkness
She’s my light
She might tell you it’s not that hard, that’s her lie
If there’s one thing to hold against her, it is I

She moves mountains with her might

The Way I Am

Release Date:
August 16, 2016
Intro

Wish I was down, on some blue bayou
With a bamboo cane, stuck in the sand
But the road I’m on, it don’t seem to go there
So I’ll just dream and keep on bein’ the way I am

Verse

Wish I enjoyed, what makes my living
Did what I do, with a willin’ hand
Some would run, no but that ain’t like me
So I’ll just dream and keep on bein’ the way I am

The way I am, don’t fit my shackles
The way I am, reality
I can almost see, that bobber dancin’
So I’ll just dream and keep on bein’ the way I am

The way I am, don’t fit my shackles
The way I am, reality
I can almost see that bobber dancin’
So I’ll just dream and keep on bein’ the way I am
So I’ll just dream and keep on bein’ the way I am

Chase That Song

Release Date:
August 16, 2016
Intro

Well I’m an eighteen wheeler with the throttle pinned down
And a brake line cut just a-screamin’ through your town
Well I’m a runaway ghost train with no way left to stop
Well I’m a nightmare that comes from your California dreamin’
With your bloodshot eyes thinkin’ nothin’s what it’s seemin’
I’m a Bradbury story, spreadin’ like a fire from hell
No I never met a lesson I didn’t learn well

Verse

I get wound up and found up in places you’ll never see
I was born to be a God-fearin’ song-singin’, good-timin’
Son of a son of an SOB
I never set out to hurt anybody, you see
I just set out to chase that song that’s chasin’ me

Well I’m a late night thunder tryin’ to raise the dead
Well I’m a pound and the haze in your whiskey trippin’ head
Well I’m the cough in your first smoke, go on and load that gun
I’m a thirteen-squared, I’m a 13 twice
Just a black cat walkin’ on thin black ice
I’m a Jinks Lord, I can’t help it I was born half bad
Some times I can’t remember they’re the best I’ve had

I get wound up and found up in places you’ll never see
I was born to be a God-fearin’ song-singin’, good-timin’
Son of a son of an SOB
I never set out to hurt anybody, you see
I just set out to chase that song that’s chasin’ me

I get wound up and found up in places you’ll never see
I was born to be a God-fearin’ song-singin’, good-timin’
Son of a son of an SOB
I never set out to hurt anybody, you see
I just set out to chase that song now it’s chasin’ me

I set out to chase that song
Out to chase that song
I set out to chase that song now it’s chasin’ me

Heavy Load

Release Date:
August 16, 2016
Intro

I can’t think of one damn thing to say
Stuck where I’m going
Stuck in a lot of ways

Verse

Tell me it still matters In a world in vain
Pissing in the wind
Screaming about the same old things

Time stands still every now and then, then it’s gone
Wondering what you did
Wondering what you did all wrong

Hindsight’s 20/20 when you’re, lookin’ back
Looking out ahead
All I see is black

The train jumped track some time ago
You can’t root that heavy load
It’s all downhill from now
And sure we paid the toll
Train jumped track some time ago

The train jumped track some time ago
You can’t root that heavy load
It’s all downhill from now
And sure we paid the toll
Train jumped track some time ago

I heard the voice of the fourth beast say
Come and see
And I looked and behold a pale horse
And his name that sat on him was death
And hell followed with him

The train jumped track some time ago
You can’t root that heavy load
It’s all downhill from now
And sure we paid the toll
Train jumped track some time ago

It’s all downhill from now
Forever paying that toll
The train jumped track some time ago

Grey

Release Date:
August 16, 2016
Intro

When the canvas is no longer blank
And the colors have all turned grey
When the desert that you’re in gets too cold for you to stay
When it’s hard to tell the night from the day

Verse

When your hands have lost the love for the trade
And the reasons for the work, just ain’t the same
When you put down the money, is the blood worth all the pain
When you can’t see the sunshine for the rain

Livin’ ain’t a promise
Livin’ ain’t a right
And no one here is gettin’ out alive
So pick up all your pieces
Cast the doubt away
Rediscover, the color in the grey
Rediscover, all the color, in the grey

Livin’ ain’t a promise
Livin’ ain’t a right
No one here is gettin’ out alive
So pick up all your pieces
Cast the doubt away
Rediscover, the color in the grey
Rediscover, all the color, in the grey

Church at Gaylor Creek

Release Date:
August 16, 2016
Intro

My favorite memories, are some of my first
Like a Sunday night meetin’ at an old country church
Sometimes my grandparents would come and take me
To an old country church house, on Gaylor Creek

Verse

We all knew our neighbors, everyone there was friends
And the preacher worked the timber, like all other men
We were baptized by water, we were washed in the blood
I don’t remember much money, but recall lots of love

That church was a long time ago
I’m talkin’ distance and years
I’m not for certain that I could even get there from here
But on nights when I’m sober and not blinded, by all that I see
My mind washes up, at that church, on Gaylor Creek

So many bar rooms, so many strangers
Women, whiskey, so many dangers
That old honky tonk highway, that’s a wild horse you rope
Son, I’ve seen enough neon, to circle the globe

That church was a long time ago
I’m talkin’ distance and years
I’m not for certain that I could even get there from here
But on nights when I’m sober and not blinded, by all that I see
My mind washes up, at that church, on Gaylor Creek
My mind washes up, at that church, on Gaylor Creek

Vampires

Release Date:

Intro

Where does time go, It’s gone away
Time was on my side, yesterday
So much can change, between then and now
Where does time go

Verse

Where do dreams die, along the way
Dreams are all we had, yesterday
Who told all the vampires of the world
They were welcome anyway
Where do dreams die

Who gave who the message
Who gave who the hands of time
Who gave who the job to take, reason and the rhyme
Like another Holden Caulfield
I’m a Catcher in the Rye
Who told who to take the dreams out back to die
Who told who to take the dreams out back to die

Who gave who the message
Who gave who the hands of time
Who gave who the job to take, reason and the rhyme
Like another Holden Caulfield
I’m a Catcher in the Rye
Who told who to take the dreams out back to die
Who told who to take the dreams out back to die

Who gave who the message
Who gave who the hands of time

Who gave who the message
Who gave who the hands of time

Who told all the vampires of the world
They were welcome anyway

Intro

California’s still on fire
And it don’t rain no more in Texas
There’s a few less ice caps way up north of here
Mother Russia stays pissed-off
Yeah, she’s got some big old bombs
Still throwin’ around her weight after all these years

Verse

And the price of gasoline is enough to make you scream
Yeah, the cost of livin’ goes up and the pay goes down
I don’t care what’s right or left, y’all
I’m just out here with the rest
In the middle class, that still means broke to me

What else is new? I’m tellin’ you
I’m tellin’ what the blue collar man is goin’ thru
We don’t let no bad news hang around
It’s the same old situation
All the problems facin’ our great nation
So to hell to all those bringin’ that bad news down

And the politicians will never know
How to let their egos go
No, they could not give two damns ’bout you and me
Yeah, but they still got their pensions
With some tactics they’d rather not mention
That’s the price we pay for them livin’ free

What else is new? I’m tellin’ you
All the trouble a blue collar man is goin’ thru
We don’t let no bad news hang around
It’s the same old situation
All the problems facin’ our great nation
So to hell to all those bringin’ that bad news down

What else is new? I’m tellin’ you
All the trouble a blue collar man is goin thru
We don’t let no bad news hang around

All to hell with all those bringin’ that bad news down

Mamma Song

Release Date:
January 12, 2015
Intro

I got a half a six pack of Old Milwaukee
And a half a bag of weed
I can’t do it like I did when I was a kid
This is all I’m going to need
Because I know you always worry about me drinking my dinner
But I don’t do that anymore
I got me a sweet girl at home
She’s keeping food on the table
And at night she keeps me warm
So I’ve got me this piece of paper
And I got my favorite pen
I know it’s been a little while
And talking’s not my style
So I just had to write my friend

Verse

Hey I’m doing alright Mamma
I’m ok, I know your late night talks with Jesus
Have helped me on my way
I know it wasn’t always easy
Raising my father’s son
And your son will be alright
If the shows keep comin’
This old guitar and me are still strummin’
I know you always knew I always took it way too far
But I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing ok

You remember the time when I was stuck in L.A.
And I didn’t have a job
And I didn’t have a way to pay the bills that I racked up
Yeah, you kept me from losing my truck
Yeah, I’m a little better off now
Than I was then
But it’s sure nice to see you calling me when
I’m out there on the road
Yeah, you calling to say have a good show

Hey I’m doing alright Mamma
I’m ok, I know your late night talks with Jesus
Have helped me on my way
I know it wasn’t always easy
Raising my father’s son
And your son will be alright
If the shows keep comin’
This old guitar and me are still strummin’
I know you always knew I always took it way too far
But I’m doing alright now Mamma
I’m doing alright now Mamma

Cast No Stones

Release Date:
January 12, 2015
Intro

I cast no stones
I build no walls
And I tell the truth
The truth comes to call
And I try to walk
That narrow way
Sometimes I go over the lines
And I won’t make it back till the next day

Verse

But I cast no stones
What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good God man your out of your mind
So put up your Bible
Or let me get mine
I’m not draggin’ the whole world to hell
You’re wasting my time

I don’t talk with Jesus
As much as I should
I don’t read that good book
Everyday like I could
But I like to stop
At the end of the day
I pray that I hurt nobody
And somebody new found their way

But I cast no stones
What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good God man your out of your mind
So put up your Bible
Or let me get mine
I’m not draggin’ the whole world to hell
You’re wasting my time

But I cast no stones
What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good God man your out of your mind
So put up your Bible
Or let me get mine
I’m not draggin’ the whole world to hell
You’re wasting my time

Say a prayer for me brother
And I’ll see you on down the line

Intro

I’ve been gone for way too long
And I’ve been working way too hard
And I know, it’s taking it’s toll on you
But tonight I’ll make things right
By the fire with some candlelight
And I’ll tell you
What we’re gonna do

Verse

We’re not going out
We’re gonna stay right here at home
There won’t be anyone in the world
When we’re all alone

We’re gonna
Lay the worries back and love until we’re back on track
If you’ll just give me this chance
Move the couch, lock the door, socks move well on a hardwood floor
And we’re gonna dance
We’re gonna dance

The rush of life can get you down
If you let it, it runs you to the ground
But that’s just life

We’re not going out, we’re gonna stay right here at home
There won’t be anyone in the world
When we’re all alone

We’re gonna
Lay the worries back and love until we’re back on track
If you’ll just give me this chance
Move the couch, lock the door, socks move well on a hardwood floor

Birds

Release Date:
January 12, 2015
Intro

Tell me old man, where have you been
I’ve been reading those stories, about chasing the wind
I guess I’ve come back with one or two
I’ve never really quite known what to do

Verse

Tell me old man, what are you looking for
Has it been worth all you’ve given and so much more
Sometimes the things we seek skew the point
Sometimes the whole damn world seems out of joint

And it makes me wonder
And it makes me want to live
So I’ll steal freedom while there’s still some
And take the whole world in
If I could only leave my worries with the birds of the wind
And I know one day there’ll be solace
So I’ll just live ‘til then
If I could only leave my worries with the birds of the wind

Old man I know you’ve had questions too
The same ones we’ve been askin’ of you
You just roll on back out of sight
Stealin’ away again, like a child in the night
Still full of wonder
And you still want to live

You steal freedom while there’s still some
And take the whole world in
You’ve learned to leave your worries with the birds of the wind
And you know one day there’ll be solace
So you’ll just live ‘til then
And you learn to leave your worries with the birds of the wind

If I could only leave my worries with the birds of the wind

David

Release Date:
January 12, 2015
Intro

My friend David, was a good kid
He had my back, always knew he did
He was different than most
And maybe I was too
Hanging out with the in-crowd just wasn’t our thing
There was a whole lot more
Than we could see on these plains
Well, some people just seem to get stuck, and hang around
It’s college or trade school for those with the means
There’s never been any small town for those in between
Yeah the poor folks they go to work, or they go to war
I did fifteen hundreds days in the corps
And I got back, nothing looked the same anymore
I got on with the local police, it just seemed to fit
Things have changed

Verse

By then David had a daughter and a son
And a rap sheet to prove all the time that he’d done
He was just a burned out beat down shell of my old friend
And on a three day binge he was speeding through town
And I bumped the wailers just to try and slow him down
He didn’t know that it was me, and he took off
Oh how things change

And I found his truck in the floodplain upside down
It was a hell of a rain I don’t know if he’d drowned
Or if he died on impact, it must have rolled three times
Yeah, the only thing to make matters worse
Is that his mama’s a late night ER nurse
And he was DOA, she just about lost her mind

David’s wife drops by every once in a while
And childhood stories always make her smile
But somehow we always go back to that day

And I found his truck in the floodplain upside down
It was a hell of a rain, I don’t know if he’d drowned
Or if he died on impact, it must have rolled three times
Yeah, the only thing to make matters worse
Is that his mama’s a late night ER nurse
And he was DOA, she just about lost her mind

Ain’t it the times

Me or You

Release Date:
January 12, 2015
Intro

You’re thinking of leavin’ tonight
Go on and go
If you’re sure it’s the right thing to do
You know I was never the kind for draggin’ things out
And I thought neither were you

Verse

It hurts me to see you unhappy, and it hurts me to know
It’s me that’s made you that way
So maybe it’s me that should go
So you don’t go on hatin’
Us both for just one more day

Out on the line walkin’ the tightrope
It ain’t always easy
But I’ve always been true
You don’t have to tell me
If you’d done any different
God only knows it’s how this one goes
Is it me or you

If I may just leave you one question
What took so long
What’s kept you around all this time
If I’d known somethin’ was wrong
I might could’a changed things
it’s too late and it seems that I’m blind
I’ve been so wrong for so long
With no way of knowing, what for
At least I’d have tried if I’d known
But it don’t matter, anymore

Out on the line walkin’ the tightrope
It ain’t always easy
But I’ve always been true
You don’t have to tell me
If you’d done any different
God only knows it’s how this one goes
Is it me or you

God only knows it’s how this one goes
Is it me or you?

I’m not that old, I’m not too young
I’m not too smart, I sure ain’t dumb
I walked around and round and round, most every place
I’ve been found and all I’ve found
Is most places usually seem the same to me

And I talk to people off the street, my line of work
I tend to meet the kind of folk that seem like-minded
Those of us just trying to find our way
So let’s just meet up at some place
We can sort it out

And I talk with people off the street, my line of work
I tend to meet the kind of folk that seem like-minded
Those of us just trying to find our way
So let’s just meet up at some place
We can sort it out

This God-forsaken world, it chews you up and spits you out
It scuffs your shoes, it takes most everything you got
And then it tries you with the blues
But that’s alright
The blues is somethin’ proves that you still feel

Some folks like to look, they like to point
They like to push, they like to shove
Some folks like to talk about the things they have
The things they love
But things are that, just things, and I don’t give a damn
And I’m alright

Release Date:
January 12, 2015
Intro

It’s been a too long time with no peace of mind
I’m ready for the times to get better
I’ve got to tell you I’ve been racking my brain
Hopin’ to find a way out
I’ve had enough of this continual rain
Changes are comin’ no doubt

Verse

It’s been a too long time with no peace of mind
And I’m ready for the times to get better

You seem to want from me what I cannot give
I feel so lonesome at times
I have a dream that I wish I could live
It’s burning holes in my mind

It’s been a too long time with no peace of mind
And I’m ready for the times to get better
It’s been a too long time with no peace of mind

Dirt

Release Date:
January 12, 2015
Intro

I remember that summer
I was ten years old
When our days, ceased to shine
No, you could not take a breath
When those black blizzards came
Strippin’ land, in dire need of rain

Verse

There was dirt on the floor
As mama swept all day long
Leavin’ trails of tears and mud down her face
There was dirt in our beds
And there was dirt in our clothes
And there was dirt, in the little that we ate

We had heard about the market’s fall
A couple years before
But the fields and the harvest all seemed fine
Sometimes the things that kill us
That which we don’t know
That strip the land of everything but pride

Stay close together
That’s all we knew to get by
I recall a helpless feelin’
First time that I saw my father cry
Lookin’ back on everything we had, on everything we lost
Still makes me wonder, was stayin’ worth the cost

Alot of town folk up and left
They boarded up the schools and banks and the churches
And that to me, was wrong
Come next year it would be better
Will the last one standin’ tall before the walls
Show the most resolve

They announced the New Deal
With the Conservation Act and then the Relief Fund
But we were on our knees
There was little hope by then
So we just stood there in that line
And we thanked the man for that little bit of cheese

Stay close together
That’s all we knew to get by
And I recall a helpless feelin’
The first time that I saw my father cry
Lookin’ back on everything we had, on everything we lost
Still makes me wonder, was stayin’ worth the cost?

Rock and Roll

Release Date:
January 12, 2015
Intro

I don’t wanna rock and roll no more
At least not the way I did, back before
That life tried to kill me
To tell the truth it never thrilled me
I don’t wanna rock and roll no more
I don’t wanna rock and roll

Verse

I don’t need that whiskey anymore
Least not the way I did back before
That stuff tried to kill me
To tell the truth it never thrilled me
I don’t want that whiskey anymore
I don’t need that whiskey

I don’t mean to disappoint you
But there’s chance I’m going to
Some people only like me when I’m stoned
Yeah the crowd was a whole lot bigger
But I just can’t remember
I don’t need that whiskey anymore
I don’t need that whiskey

I don’t wanna miss you anymore
I just want you right here in my arms
This ol’ life still trying to kill me
You’re the only thing that’s filled me
I don’t wanna miss you anymore
I don’t wanna miss you

And I don’t mean to disappoint you
But you know I’m goin to
Sometimes I’d lay it all down and come back home
Yeah, the crowd was a whole lot bigger
When you were right there in the center
I don’t wanna miss you anymore
I don’t need that whiskey anymore
I don’t wanna rock and roll

Big Iron Wheels

Release Date:
June 18, 2013
Intro

Big iron wheels keep on rollin’
Big iron wheels turnin’ ‘round
From my home I am leavin’
Headed for another town
I left a girl back in the country
For the city and the pay
Reachin’ out for fame and fortune
But I’ll go back again some day

Verse

Big iron wheels keep on rollin’
Big iron wheels turnin’ ‘round
From my home I am leavin’
Headed for another town
Feel the rhythm and the motion
Hear the rumble, hear the roar
Headed for some destination
That I’ve never seen before

Cold iron slappin’ on the steel rails
The sky outside is cold and pale
The snow is heavy comin’ down now
As the mountain winds away
Big iron wheels keep on rollin’
big iron wheels turnin’ ‘round
To the sunshine I’m returning
To kiss the girl in my hometown
To kiss the girl in my hometown
To kiss the girl from my hometown

Old Friend

Release Date:
June 18, 2013
Intro

My old friend
I’ll see you again another day
We can talk and laugh and drink the night away
Like we did, my old friend

Verse

When we were kids
No, you did not have a home so you hung around
And stay up all night long and we’d pretend
That we were dead, when we were kids

You grew up harder than I did
You found the nightlife, you drug us both in
And we raised cane like rasin’ cane was goin’ out
‘Cause we never thought much about gettin’ old anyway
Now I’m findin’ that I wish I could go back once again

My old friend

No, you never let me down as years went by
You went on your way and I went mine
Like the wind, my old friend

You grew old faster than I did
You know that nightlife will do you in
And you raised cane until the cane was all burned out
Now I hope for both our sakes that I grow old
And I’m still findin’ that I wish I could go back once again

My old friend

I’ll see you again another day
We can talk and laugh and bow our heads and pray
Like we did, my old friend

My old friend
My old friend
My old friend

Blacksheep

Release Date:
June 18, 2013
Intro

They ask black sheep of a black sheep’s son
Have you any wool, and I say no sir
I gave it all away
I’m a black sheep of a black sheep
And I’ve been one many times
But that don’t make me anybody’s fool
I gave most to Christ Jesus for saving my soul
For that bet with the devil who lives down below
There’s been some for my mother, my father
My sister, my brothers, my son, my daughter, my lover
There’s been some for that homeless man
That I watched die in some ally
With a slit wrist I went home to cry
There’s been some for my buddies fightin’
In some rich man’s war
Yeah they gave all they could
We don’t sing no more

Verse

I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round
I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round
I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round

They ask black sheep of a black sheep’s son
Where have you been
We’ve been worried, we’ve been in need
I’ve been hidin’ on the pathways
Biding my time amongst the wolves hungry to feed
Well I give what I can nature of man
Just needs war so what can I say
Yeah I’ll die someday stripped
Havin’ given all the gifts I’ve received
That is my pain

I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round
I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round
I stand naked and cold as the crowd gathers ‘round

Black sheep of a black sheep’s son
Have you any wool, and I say yeah
I saved some for you

Johnny

Release Date:
June 18, 2013
Intro

Locked him up back in ’69
On clear Kentucky shine
Then again in ’87, cornbread, smoke fed
The Marion county line
It is time, he did his time

Verse

Thirteen of twenty served
and that far outweighed his crime
He came back a wiser man
he came back to do what he’d do
He’d do it every time
It is time, He did his time

When they came bustin’ in last year
Like a smoke ring he’s up and gone
But he wouldn’t have to go too far
When the folks ’round here
They don’t trust no law, no way

Hey run, Johnny, run
Hey run, Johnny, run
Hey now run now, run, Johnny run

A man’s worries’ all he’s got
A man’s law don’t mean a damn
To the down home southern folk
Who live by the law of the land, not Uncle Sam
It’s their land, it’s our land

No one knows who you’re talkin’ ‘bout
No one’s seen, they’ve all gone blind
Knowin’ he’ll be back some day
To do what he’d do, what he’d do
He’d do it every time, it is time
No more time

And they’re still chasin’ down old ghosts
And they’re still askin’ on deaf ears
But he wouldn’t have to go too far
When the folks ’round here
They don’t trust no law, no way

Hey run, Johnny, run
Hey run, Johnny run
Hey now run now, run, Johnny run

Never mind no song, keep your head down, boy
Run, Johnny run
You can rest at my place when the day is done

Hey now, run Johnny, run now run, Johnny run
Hey now, run now, run Johnny run

Never mind no song, keep your head down, boy
Run, Johnny run
You can rest at my place when the day is done

Little Train

Release Date:
June 18, 2013
Intro

Little train, little train just a rollin’ down the track
Little train, little train ain’t even lookin’ back
Little train, little train you’re carryin’ my heart away
Little train, I’m singin’ you a mournful song
With my hands in the air till the black smoke’s gone
Little train I won’t be seein’ you too soon

Verse

I hear you’re headed out west, my, the weather’s been bad
Watch the floods in the canyon, lift the mud from the track
Little train don’t you know it’s dangerous out there
Tell your shotgun rider there’s a beef on the loose
But an extra gun on the old caboose
Little train make sure my baby’s safe and sound

Roll on, little engine, roll on down the line
You’re carryin’ my baby away
And I’ll cry to the four winds until your safe return
When you bring back my baby to stay
Won’t you make her stay?

When her business is done won’t you call her on back
Won’t you let a long whistle out your old smokestack
Little train, I’m afraid that city’s caught her eye
Little train, little train don’t you go too fast
Don’t you go too slow just keep her on track
Little train won’t you flash your headlamps when you’re near

Roll on, little engine, roll on back down the line
You’re carryin’ my baby away
I cried out to the four winds upon your safe return
When you bring back my baby to stay
No never take her away

Little train, little train just a rollin’ down the track
Little train, little train ain’t even lookin’ back
Little train, little train you’re carryin’ my heart away
Little train, I’m singin’ you a mournful song
With my hands in the air till the black smoke’s gone
Little train I won’t be seein’ you too soon

Fast Hand

Release Date:
June 18, 2013
Intro

I didn’t wanna shoot that man
But he heard that I was fast
You know that liquor gave him the courage
To put a man to the ground
But nobody saw
I couldn’t claim no self-defense
So I took off with the morning sun,
Running from my sins

Verse

I ended up in every town
Where all the bad men go
And they’ve been running just like me
Someone always knows
He’ll say, “Ain’t you the man who shot that boy?”
Who wanted his turn to dance
So will I die in some street that night
No never had a chance

I never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand
Ain’t going to be nothing in hell
I haven’t lived through here
I’m just going to walk out
and wish you all goodnight
I never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand

I ended up in Fort Worth
‘Cause no one knows me here
And time has a funny way
of taken away the years
But I don’t mind the changes
Or the age that’s in my face
Because there is a piece of my soul
In every man I’ve killed
In every God forsaken place

Never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand
Ain’t going to be nothing in hell
I haven’t lived through here
I’m just going to walk out
yeah tonight I’ll save your life
I never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand

A Memory and a Dream

Release Date:
April 11, 2012
Intro

It’s a long, hard, and a windin’ road to where I am right now

A lot of days I wish I could change, but I can’t figure how

‘Cause all them places I’ve been, the things that I’ve seen

I’d be better off dead than goin’ there again

And I’ve been caught somewhere in between

A memory and a dream



Verse

Well, I’ve been screamin’ at the world

Since the time that I could talk

Well, I’ve been runnin’ into walls

Since the day that I could walk

‘Cause all them bottles I’ve drank, never mind the smoke

Man, the years are gangin’ up on me, but I’m a holdin’ onto hope

And I’m still caught somewhere in between

A memory and a dream



Yeah, ten years gone, I’ve been around the world

And somehow, I always wind up here

It must be this company I keep, oh that takes me back

And gets me on my feet
Yeah, my life is still exactly what it seems

A memory and a dream



Yeah, ten years gone, I’ve been around the world

And somehow, I always wind up here

Must be this company I keep, oh that takes me back

And gets me on my feet

Yeah, my life is still exactly what it seems

A memory and a dream



Yeah, my life is still exactly what it seems

A memory and a dream



It’s a long, hard, and a windin’ road
to where I am right now

A lot of days I wish I could change
but I can’t figure how

Looking For a Friend

Release Date:
April 11, 2012
Intro

I stopped by a place I used to know
But nobody knew my name

And I felt out of place and out of time

But I had one just the same

The new bartender did not seem to care

About a story of back then

It’s gettin’ hard to find ’em, have you seen ’em?

I’m lookin’ for a friend



Verse

It’s been a time round here, just gettin’ by

Things are hard and nothin’s new

And I’ve been waitin’ for that sun to break on a cloudy afternoon

Yeah, this winter’s been much colder

Than the ones I knew back then

It’s gettin’ hard to find ’em, have you seen ’em?

I’m lookin’ for a friend



And I go down the road and back again

It’s hard rememberin’ where I’ve been

And I ain’t changed

It seems the world took off

And left me, that’s the way it goes

It’s a lonely road the dreamer follows

Like Peter Pan in Neverland, all alone



And I’m still singin’ for my supper, like I’ve always done

But now the business and the politics have taken most the fun

But I’ll be out there chasin’ sundown

And I’ll be home in God knows when

I’m lookin’ out to find one, I’m hopin’ I might see one

I’m lookin’ for a friend



And I go down the road and back again

It’s hard rememberin’ where I’ve been

And I ain’t changed

It seems the world took off

And left me, that’s the way it goes

It’s a lonely road the dreamer follows

Like Peter Pan in Neverland, all alone



I stopped by a place I used to know

But nobody knew my name

We Get By

Release Date:
April 11, 2012
Intro

Stayin’ burnt out all the time

Well that’s a good way for you to lose your mind

Stayin’ low for too damn long

Well, that’s enough to wanna get high

I’m not saying what’s right or wrong

Some folks need a little help gettin’ along

I can’t judge, Lord, I’ve been stoned

But I know Jesus knows

Verse



And I get by

And I get by

We all get by

By the grace of God we all get by



Yeah, my momma introduced me to God as a child

You know my dad, he does his livin’ a little less mild

He’d rather sing those gospel songs on the front porch anyway

My baby sister, she married a man

On the other side of where dad and I land

We laugh and joke and give him hell

But he loves that little girl



And they get by

And they get by

We all get by

By the grace of God we all get by


And everybody’s waiting on that day when all is right

And we’ve still got each other

To make it through another night

Everybody’s waiting on that time when all is right

We still got each other

To make it through another night



This corner bar is not a house of sin

It’s a place where all of us fit in

I’ve seen the same faces Saturday night

As I have on Sunday morning

And Brother John’s there sipping his drink

You know he don’t care what the others might think

He’ll laughs and joke and finds it funny

That the others all drink alone at home



And he gets by

And he gets by

We all get by

By the grace of God we all get by



Stayin’ burnt out all the time

Well, that’s a good way for you to lose your mind

Stayin’ low for too damn long

Well that’s enough to wanna get high
