Twice As Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)

Good Morning Captain Lyrics

There's a ruckus on the levee
Unruly crowd on the court house steps
If we make it to sunday
I'm sho' nuff gonna ask the good lord for help
With a mouthful of salt i try to explain
If money was sand i couldn't hold one grain
I feel like a thefe that knows he's been framed
For leaving the watch but stealing the chain

Chorus
Good morning captain
I wish there was another way
But my baby is wantin'
Me roll around in her bed all day

Well the late nights got me reellin'
Spillin out the bottle
Right into the next day
Got a funny little feelin'
Gonna be like this till my dying day
There's mud in my eye
But i can still see
Everybody in town is tryin' to murder me
If they don't get me ‘spose the hangman will
So i better think twice about making this deal
Chorus

Magnolia magnolia resting
Under the shade of your leaves

Feelin' Alright Lyrics

Seems I've got to have a change of scene
'Cause everynight I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it could have been
Left here on my own or so it seems
I've got to leave before I start to scream
Someone locked the door and turned the key

Feelin' alright
I'm not feeling good myself
Feelin' alright
I don't have to feel alright
I'm feeling good myself
Boy you sure took me for a ride
And even now I sit and wonder why
That when I think of you I stop myself from crying
I just can't waste my time
I must keep tryin'

I've got to stop believing all your lies
'Cause there's much to do before I die

Remedy Lyrics

Baby, baby why can't you sit still?
Who killed that bird out on you window sill?
Are you the reason that he broke his back?
Did I see you laugh about that?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it glide?

Can I have some remedy?

Remedy for me please.
Cause if I had some remedy
I'd take enough to please me.

Baby, baby why did you dye your hair?
Why you always keeping with your mother's dare?
Baby why's who's who, who know you too?
Did the other children scold on you?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it slide

Sister Luck Lyrics

Worried sick my eyes are hurting
To rest my head I'd take a life
Outside the girls are dancing
'Cause when you're down it just don't seem right

Feeling second fiddle to a dead man
Up to my neck with your disregard
Like a beat dog that's walking on the broadway
No one wants to hear you when you're down

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

A flip of a coin
Might make a head turn
No surprise, who sleeps
Held my hand over a candle
Flame burnin' but I never weep

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

What a shame
(Repeat 2nd Chorus)

She Gave Good Sunflower Lyrics

I've been lost in the headlights
All night long
Said i've felt taller, yes I heard
the dealer's song

Say babe don't mark me absent
I only missed out by a fraction
Be the sun that bursts through my clouds
It's hard enough just living on this ground

chorus:
Say don't pretend to me
I beg and i plead, your sunflower I need
Thought nothing would surprise me
I was wrong now i see
Come on baby and just do me
if you please

This made me reminiscing
About the honey we made
I feel warm in your blizzard
And your flood I crave
I won't abuse my anger
I promise you no lecture

Come be the sun bursting through my clouds
It's hard enough just living on the ground
chorus

Another Roadside Tragedy Lyrics

Kiss me goodnight, shake me awake.
The closer I get to you the more I can't wait.
Roll on down hill, smell my brakes
No time for coffee, just splash water on my face, oh yeah

Kick my tires, count out of state plates
Roll down my window, don't the wind feel great?
Sunrise my friend, sunset again
This song I keep humming while my four wheels' spinning

Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy

Wind it down and back it up
I might get there sooner than I thought
No warranty on the wear and tear
It don't matter, just as long as I get there

Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy

She Talks To Angels Lyrics

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family

She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
She gives a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna' make everything alright

Says she talks to angels
They call her out by her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck
Yes the hair is from a little boy
And the cross from someone she has not met
Not yet

(Repeat Chorus)

She don't know no lovers
None that I've ever seen
And to her that means nothing
But to me it means, means everything

(Repeat second verse)
(Repeat Chorus)

Whoa Mule Lyrics

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

All you ramblers
You silk tongued gamblers
Listen to my tale
Won't take long
To sing you my song
Full of trouble and despair

So fare thee well
You troubadours
Whose pockets have no lining
I could tell you that
All pastures stay green
But you know that I'd be lying

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

My own true love
Is a raven-haired girl
Who lives way back down the hollow
I take her by
Her lily-white hand
And into the woods we wander

Her daddy was
A river man
As mad as a hatter
Her mama, she's
As soft as snow
But that don't really matter

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

Sometimes a road
Is rocky and hard
Full of dangers unrelenting
Just take great care
To follow your star
Let the good times come a'plenty

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

Thorn In My Pride Lyrics

Wake me when the day breaks
Show me how the sun shines
Tell me about your heartaches
Who could be so unkind?
Do you dream to touch me?
And smile down deep inside
Or could you just kill me?
It's hard to make up your mind, sometimes.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Are you wanting inspiration
You spill your secrets on me
Then you tell me with a whisper
Of things that will never be.
Do you hear me breating?
Does it make you want to scream?
Did you ever like a bad dream?
Sometimes life is obscene.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Lover cover me with your sleep
Let your love light shine
Lover cover me with a good dream
Let your love light shine

Title Song Lyrics

You know I never wanted it to be like this
I've been lost in sandstorms
Left naked by your kiss
In the face of God
Of God and his poison leaves
The way it feels right now oh yeah
I really want to believe

So then you look on me with sad black eyes
Well I heard it coming yeah
And you know I lost my smile
In a January that never ends
The gold affections of my past
Are now just rusted tin, yeah

Well I really want to see you again
I miss my lover, as my best friend
Yeah baby I , I want you right by my side
With you baby, I'd spend all my time

They said they'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
Yes, with a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
If I could be your title song

So every now and then I get sad, yes it's true
Well you've known me long enough now baby yeah, it's nothing new
Like, like, when I'm feeling bad
I feel underwater I feel blue
And you know the only thing I ask from you baby
Well, is can I swim to you, yeah

Well I really want to begin this again
Cause I miss you as my lover, I miss my best friend
Oh baby I, I just want you right by my side
Yeah cause with you girl I would spend all my time

Said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Yeah

Well baby, I, yes I want to begin this again
Well cause I miss my lover, and yes I miss my best friend
Oh baby you know I want you right by my side
Down with you baby, I'll spend all my time

We said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
A girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could only be that way
I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Well I won't be lost for long
If you could be my title song
My title song

Soul Singing Lyrics

I've been down
Cascading and blue without a sound
Now I've traded my black feathers for a crown
So feed me milk and honey lay me down
Lay me down
Look around
Show me holy places not yet found
Lets disappear and we'll hide underground
And we'll get high and we'll feel safe and sound
It comes around
Around

Chorus:
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Come on now come on now

Home bound
Tired of tired of running town to town
Tired of my heart turned upside down
Now my life a smile and not a frown
The sound
The sound

Chorus

Goodbye Daughters Of The Revolution Lyrics

Caught a rusty engine out of sawdust town
Made a deal with the man who shook 'em all down
So put a little grease on my axle now
I've been from Antioch to Alcatraz
I can roll you one from an empty bag
So let's take it easy to avoid any snags

CHORUS:

Goodbye daughters of the revolution
Open your eyes and see the solution
Hallelujah come join the jubilee
So let's keep on runnin'
Through the gates of the city
To give up now would be such a pity
And don't you want to see the ship
Go down with me

I'll come to you hungry I'll come to you sore
I'll come round midnight to your back door
I'll drag my tail across your floor
Gonna run you ragged til you act your age
Gonna circle the wagons gonna storm your stage
If we all plead guilty will the charges be the same

Chorus

I've been restless, baby
I'm feeling wild
Caught up in a fever dream
Save me child
Save me child

Chorus

Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down?

Wiser Time Lyrics

No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile

You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another road song
Funny but I bet you never left home

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Fourteen seconds till' sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Descending Lyrics

Have mercy baby
I'm descending again
Open your eyes
This time it's sink or it's swim
No sermons on ascending
No verdict on deceit
No selfish memorandum
No confusion for me

Curses
Curses and clues
A feast for fools
Have mercy baby
And hand me downs
It was just a few years ago
You'd hand me ups and map
Right out of town
But I would let it slide
Like mercury
Silver and quick
Poisonous and deadly
So deadly

Mellow Down Easy Lyrics

You jump jump here
You jump jump there
You jump jump jump everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
You mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top

You shake shake here
You shake shake there
You shake shake shake everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
You mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your topv
You wiggle wiggle here
You wiggle wiggle there
You wiggle wiggle wiggle everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
You mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top

Boomer's Story Lyrics

Come and gather all around me
Listen to my tale of woe
Got some good advice to give you
Lots of things you oughta know
Take a tip from one who's travelled
And never stopped a-ramblin' round
'Cause once you get the roamin' fever
You never want to settle down, boy
You never want to settle down

I met a little gal in Frisco
And I asked her to be my wife
Told her I was tired of roamin'
Goin' to settle down for life
Then I heard the whistle blowin'
And I knew it was the Red Ball Train
And I left that gal beside the railroad
And I never saw the gal again, boy
I never saw the gal again

Saw that girl again
Never Saw that girl again
I left that girl beside the railroad
And I never saw that girl again

Travelled all over the country
I travelled everywhere
I been on every Branch Line railroad
And I never paid a nickel fare
I been from Maine to Califor'ny
And from Canada to Mexico
I never tried to save no money
And now I got no place to go, boy
Now I got no place to go

Listen to a Boomer's story
Pay attention to what I say
Well, I hear another train a-comin'
Guess I'll be on my way
If you want to do me a favor
When I lay me down and die
Just dig my grave beside the railroad
So I can hear the trains go by, boys
So I can hear the trains go by

Hear the train go by
I can hear the train go by
Just bury my bones be side the railroad
So I can hear the train go by
