Exit Lyrics

Never fought with these dark clouds
Nor the handful of rain
Today my dust hit my pavement
Went overboard again

Yeah I've heard all the songs of protest
So much reason for the rage
People so blind in their conquest
They forgot the title page

So don't you pity me
Misplace my intentions
Don't, don't mistake me
This is no illusion
This is an exit

Baby I've been your trophy
Yes I've been your hole
Well I been your constellations your constitution
I've even been your parole
So if you want to beat me
Be prepared for a shock
Cause baby baby, with your crime yeah
You will find, who holds the key and who holds the lock

So don't you pity me
Call me a desert
Don't mistake me
Call me deserter
This is an exit

So don't you pity me
Don't misplace my intentions
Don't mistake me
This is no illusion
This is an exit

No Speak No Slave Lyrics

Rooster crows at the break of dawn
A mother dies without her only son
A doctor laughs in the face of disease
I never once heard a preacher say please

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Policemen who break the laws
Politicians rise and fall
A baby crying for its mothers milk
A daddy's secret hidden guilt

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Cypress Tree Lyrics

So you found yourself a killer
The one with blue eyes
I guess the blood stain on the blanket don't lie
I guess I saw it coming
Like a boy I just kept running
But through this crime I have survived

Chorus:
They're gonna hang you from the cypress tree
The crowd gonna cheer when the see you swing
Yeah, they're gonna hang you from the cypress tree
Tell me now do you believe?

Glory Halleluia,
I raise my glass up to you
And I bow my head with utmost respect
And I think its only fair to warn you
That there's a storm that's coming up on you
And like a wind and the rain
My words are direct

Chorus

It's a funny word "friends"
You get beginnings and you got ends
I guess I see you when we're ashes again

Chorus

Evil Eye Lyrics

This is illegal
through an evil eye,
and I won't deceive you,
this I testify.
You all know the reason why.
I won't enslave you.
A little bliss forever.
I'm not afraid to love you.
A little bliss forever

(Chorus)

Look at the world with an evil eye;
your cold heart won't let you cry;
try to make a change in the wink of an eye.
Do you have it in you to even try?

Jesus can't save you,
though it's nice to think he'd try.
This is not to scare you;
this is to make sense of our time.
Do prophets speak in rhymes?
Then you die!

(Chorus)
(Chorus)

Walk Believer Walk Lyrics

Go down go down you stranger
There's something waiting for you
Angels dogs and honey
Devils and harpoons

You want your mainline Jesus
You want your diamond god
You want to pull the trigger
And kill the autumn hog

Walk believer walk
Straight into the sun
Walk believer walk
Your work is never done

Pray on pray on my brother
Now's the time for truth
Black shadow comes a creepin'
To take the soul right out of you

Can you feel the demons pulling
Can you hear the devil sing
Can you taste the poison in your mouth
Feel the weight of his chains

Walk believer walk
Straight into the sun
Walk believer walk
Your work is never done

Nonfiction Lyrics

I don't know my telephone number
But you kiss good and I'd like to
See you tomorrow
And I don't beg, I pay, I don't barter
And if we had a child I'd like a son,
Not a daughter
'Cause she'd be just like you
You know that would not do

I'm no builder, I'm no gardener
I sing some songs, have a friend
Who's a photographer
There ain't no other language
I know how to speak
Some like their water shallow
And I like mine deep
Tied to the bottom
With a noose around my feet

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

I like to dress up like the jury
To eat like a king, to poke fun at clergy
To talk like dirt
To love you like tar
But never fall in too fast
With my north star
While you pull your hair out
I buy the drinks at the bar

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

Peace Anyway Lyrics

You're not promised a hot meal
It's just another raw deal
Just another rainy day, everyday yeah
So you say that you cannot relate
No, no its not up for debate
You know your bills they cannot wait
But you still have time

CHORUS:
You'll find peace anyway
You'll find peace anyway

Just got to look baby, alright
Listen

So your bright eyes, they don't shine
And your watch, it don't keep time
Well guess what, neither does mine
Neither does mine
It just makes you want to cry
Just drink it all and say goodnight
But giving up don't make it right
alright, alright

CHORUS

And well I know that you might get so scared
Well, about what you find
What it means to you baby when you get there

CHORUS
CHORUS (repeated)

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

There's Gold In Them Hills Lyrics

On the first day of winter
I was set to leave
With the lost art of true love in my eye
Through wild frontier
With outlaws and thieves
To find me a mountain in the sky

There's gold in them hills
I heard the man cry
There's gold in them hills
For the takin'
It's a one-way ticket
Down a river of lies
There's gold in them hills
If you make it

On the last day of spring
I first saw the sea
A poor boy with good luck on my side
Ready for riches
I rolled up my sleeve
And took my first step
Down in he mine

There's gold in them hills
I heard the man cry
There's gold in them hills
For the takin'
It's a one-way ticket
Down a river of lies
There's gold in them hills
If you make it

Hid my wallet
Same old pocket
Sixteen dollars
Brand new shoes
Empty bottle
Satin garters
What's a country boy to do?

Tell dear mother that I miss her
But things are different now
There's nothing I can do
Your dark-haired son is now long gone
Remember me
When you stare at the moon

Broken my heart
For diamonds and gold
Through scandal, through madness
Through cold
All I have left is this grey in my beard
This mountain and the stories that I've told

There's gold in them hills
I heard the man cry
There's gold in them hills
For the takin'
It's a one-way ticket
Down a river of lies
There's gold in them hills
If you make it

Wyoming and Me Lyrics

It turned ugly that day
Tried to hide my heart
And run away
Will it always be this way
I can't see the future
No way to say

You're beautiful but you're flawed
You're desperate but you're strong
You're lonely but never alone
You're empty, like Wyoming and me

It's the nature of things
Try to leave a little
Of what you bring
Let's all join hands
And form a ring
Cross your fingers
Then we will sing

You're beautiful but you're flawed
You're desperate but you're strong
You're lonely but never alone
You're empty, like Wyoming and me

You're beautiful but you're flawed
You're desperate but you're strong
You're lonely but never alone
And you're empty, like Wyoming and me

Wyoming and me
Wyoming and me
Wyoming and me
Wyoming and me

Do Right Woman, Do Right Man Lyrics

Take me to heart and I´ll always love you
And nobody can make me do wrong
Take me for granted and I'll tag along
Makes will power weak and temptation strong

Well a woman´s only human
This you must understand
She´s not just a play thing
She expects love just like a man

So if you wanna do right
All day woman
You gotta be a do right
All night man

They say that´s it´s a man´s world
But you can´t prove that by me
For as long as we´re together baby
You better show some respect for me

If you wanna do right
All day woman
You gotta be a do right
All night man

You gotta be a do right
All night man
You gotta be a do right
All night man

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

Sting Me Lyrics

If you feel like a riot, then don't you deny it
Put your good foot forward
No need for heroics I just want you to show it
Now's the time to shine
Your independence is a half ass deliverance
The train left the station
The recognition of the same old condition
Your symptoms showing through

Well regardless of the truth
You still act so aloof
In the face of your judge & jury
You have the nerve to say not guilty

But can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Well the bells ring out for the crimes of the century
By courtesy of your mother
The signs reads welcome to the valley of discovery
Look at what money can buy
Sons & daughters better open your eyes
Tell me what you're seeing
This submission is a tired tradition
It's everyone's sacrifice

Well believe you me
I've got nothing up my sleeve
Except a heart and a chip on my shoulder
Yes I'm young and don't like getting older

Yeah but can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Come on my sweet little thing
What new things can you show me today
I got one question
I believe it's subjective
What is a wasp without her sting?

I don't want to sound bitter
Yeah you touch me just like murder
Living ain't so easy
When all I want from you is to sting me

Can you sting me

My Morning Song Lyrics

Dizzy found me last night
Saw some kind of new light
I woke up in a whirlwind
Just you watch my head spin

The spectacle that made you cry
It's a thrill a minute plane ride
It's over time at ring side, no lie

March me down to the seven seas
Bury me with a ruby ring
Kiss me baby on an Easter Sunday day
Make my haze blow away

I hide I seek I go and I find
Truth in a fable faith in a rhyme
So why you want to bad talk me
Are you surprised by what we see?

Like the tables and the tides turn
On my bed the emperor worm
Is that enough for me, could be

If music got to free your mind
Just let it go cause you never know, you never know
If your rhythm ever falls out of time
You can bring it to me and I will make it alright

And if your soul is let go
Oh you never know, no you never know
And if your heart is beating free
For the very first time it'll be alright

Jealous Again Lyrics

Cheat the odds that made you
Brave to try to gamble at times
Well I feel like dirty laundry
Sending sickness on down the line
Tell you why

'Cause I'm jealous, jealous again
Thought it time I let you in
Yeah, I'm jealous, jealous again
Got no time, baby

Always drunk on Sunday
Try'n to feel like I'm at home
Smell the gasoline burning
Boys out feeling nervous and cold

(Repeat 1st Chorus)

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you
Never felt like smiling
Sugar wanna' kill me yet
Find me loose lipped and laughing
Singing songs ain't got no regrets
(Repeat 1st and 2nd Chrous)

Don't you think I want to
Don't you think I would
Don't you think I'd tell you baby
If I only could
Am I acting crazy
Am I just too proud
Am I just plain lazy
Am I, Am I, Am I, ever

Willin' Lyrics

I been warped by the rain, driven by the snow
I'm drunk and dirty don't ya know,
and I'm still, willin'
Out on the road late at night,
Seen my pretty Alice in every head light
Alice, Dallas Alice
I've been from Tucson to
Tucumcari Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
Driven the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed
And if you give me: weed, whites, and wine
and you show me a sign I'll be willin', to be movin'
I've been kicked by the wind, robbed by the sleet
Had my head stoved in, but I'm still on my feet and I'm still... willin'
Now I smuggled some smokes and folks from Mexico
baked by the sun, every time I go to Mexico, and I'm still
And I been from Tucson to Tucumcari Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
Driven the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed
And if you give me: weed, whites, and wine
and you show me a sign I'll be willin', to be movin'

Poor Elijah Lyrics

Poor Elijah, living on the bayou way
Poor Elijah, he had to take over raising fourteen kids
When his daddy got caught stealing chickens from a neighbor one day
Work on Elijah, work on

Poor Elijah, born the son of a slave
Poor Elijah, he was damn near blind when he died last week
From working in the sun for the man like a dog all day
Work on Elijah, work on

Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah

Singing a song
A song about a man
Nobody hardly knows him
Nobody hardly knows him
Said nobody hardly knows him
Nobody knows him

- Tribute To Johnson -
Good morning Robert Johnson son
You built your life before your song was sung
People agree and now you're number one.
So sad to think we had to wait so long

It keeps on getting better every day
And maybe someday soon, people will say
Ain't nobody here but good people
Ain't nobody here but good people
Ain't nobody here but good people

No, nobody here
No, nobody here
No, nobody here
No, nobody here
