Track Name: WHEN YOU COME HOME
WHEN YOU COME HOME

THERE'S NO DIFFERENCE IN ME
NO DIFFERENCE IN HER
HOT ROLLIN' TEARS
A DRESS WORN BEFORE
THIS TRAIL YOU LEAD
WILL ALWAYS BE DIRT
THAT'S HOW YOU LIKE IT
SO GET ON YOUR MARK

GET UP AND GO
GO IN AND GET IT
SHE WILL WAIT TO
AND WE'LL ALL DANCE TOGETHER
WHEN YOU COME HOME

YOU CAN'T MOVE TO SPEAK
WHEN THERE ARE NO WORDS
NOTHING TO SAY
TO DO EITHER ONE GOOD
THE MOUNTAINS YOU CLIMB
WILL ALL BE WON
THAT'S HOW YOU LIKE IT
SO GO WIN THEM ALL

I'VE GOT THREE BOTTLES WAITING
FROM THE BOOTLEGGER
UNDER THE BAR
I WORK EVERY TUESDAY
AND IT FEELS GOOD
I KEEP ON FORGETTING
THAT'S HOW I LIKE IT
THAT WE'RE NOT TOGETHER
Track Name: EWING
EWING

YOU CAN BURN ALL THE BRIDGES TO EWING
A FAIR LADY SITS AND WAITS THERE
TALKING BOUT MEMORIES OF LOVED ONES
MOST DEAD OR FORGOT SHE WAS THERE
AND YOU CAN BURN DOWN THAT OLD FARM HOUSE
A LOT OF LOVE AND LIES LIVED THERE
CHILDHOOD MEMORIES, BABIES, DIVORCES
ADVICE, GOOD JOKES, AND FAREWELLS

YOU CAN ASK ME HOW I'M DOING
REPLY WITH I'M FINE AND I'M WELL
BUT THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES
IS THAT THEY'RE JUST DISGUISES
AND THE TRUTH ALWAYS CHANGES
WHEN YOU'RE NOT THERE

TIMING SOMETIMES IS THE BEST EXPLANATION
WHY WE LIVE, WHEN WE DIE, AND OUR LUCK
SOME OF US GET RICE, SOME OF US ICE CREAM
SOME OF US GET BOTH
AND I HOPE SOMEDAY YOU REALIZE
THAT LIFE IS A GIFT WITH A CHOICE
THAT CHOICES MAKE UP OUR TIMING
THE TIMING THE GROUND WORK FOR OUR COURSE
Track Name: WHISKEY OF LOVE
WHISKEY OR LOVE

IF I COULD JUST FIND A MAN
BEFORE I LEFT THIS BAR ROOM
HONEY I MIGHT JUST STAY IN TOWN
LIKE IF I COULD FIND A MAN
BEFORE I LEFT TONIGHT
HONEY I MIGHT JUST SETTLE DOWN
BUT YOU STAY IN THIS TOWN LONG ENOUGH
YOU WILL BURN IN HELL
IT'S BEEN RAINING I'VE BEEN CRYING
SO MY PAIN YOU CANNOT TELL
HOLES IN MY BOOTS KNIFE IN MY HEART
BLEEDING THROUGH MY SMILE
MY DISTRACTION'S BEEN A WHISKEY BOTTLE
YOURS A WOMAN CHILD
I HOPE THAT YOU ARE HAPPY
I HOPE YOU'RE DOING FINE
CAUSE WHEN YOU SETTLE FOR LESS
THE PAIN'S EVEN MORE
IT WILL CUT YOU AT THE DROP OF A DIME
SO WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF
BACK OUT IN COLORADO
MISSING ME MORE THAN YOU WANT HER
DON'T CALL ME TO FIND YOU AN AIRPLANE
YOU'RE THE ONE WHO LEFT HOME
IT'S A CAUTIOUS EFFORT I MAKE EVERYDAY
A WELL TIMED ENDEVOR ENDEARING IN WAYS
IT'S THE LINES ROUND MY EYES
WHAT MY HEART'S REALLY SEEN
MY MISTAKES WHAT I'VE LEARNED
WHERE I'M GOING
WHICH IS WORSE
WHISKEY OR LOVE?
I WAS TOLD TO LEAVE
THAT LOVE SHIT ALONE
CAUSE THERE AIN'T NOTHING LIKE
BEING OPHELIA
AND BASKING IN DEAD FLOWERS
Track Name: WORDS THAT WILL BREAK YOU
WORDS THAT WILL BREAK YOU

YOU'VE BEEN BUSTING ROUND THIS TOWN
LIKE YOU'VE GOT BOOTS MADE OF GOLD OR SOMETHING
YOU'VE BEEN WAIVING YOUR REBEL FLAG
LIKE YOU'RE OWED SOME RIGHT OF PASSAGE
BUT THE ONLY THING HOLDING YOU DOWN
IS ONE BIG BAG OF BAGGAGE
AND I SUGGEST YOU DUMP IT OUT
AND AIR OUT THAT DIRTY LAUNDRY

I AIN'T SAYING GET RIGHT WITH GOD
BUT I'M PRETTY SURE THAT WOULDN'T HURT
OR TO APOLOGIZE TO THOSE YOU'VE FUCKED
OR BUT A LOTTERY TICKET WHEN YOUR DOWN ON YOUR LUCK
YOU SEE KARMA SHE'S A BITCH
BUT SHE CAN ALSO BE A QUEEN
AND THAT SOUNDS JUST LIKE A WOMAN
OH IT SOUNDS LIKE A WOMAN
IF YOU'RE ASKING ME

SO GET YOUR NICKELS IN A ROLL
YOUR DUCKS IN A ROW
AND MIND YOUR P'S & Q'S
THAT YOU NEVER KNOW
IF THEY'LL THROW TOMATOES OR STONES
OR JUST PLAIN SAY FUCK YOU
THAT STICKS AND STONES
CAN BREAK YOUR BONES
BUT MY BEST ADVICE TO YOU
IS DONT PISS ME OFF
OR I'LL WRITE A SONG
AND SON THOSE ARE WORDS
THAT WILL BREAK YOU

OH SO DISSAPOINTING
BUT SO IS IT ALL
SO BAD IT LEAVES US FEELING
BUT YOU KNOW WE HAD TO PART
SO COLD AND IN THE DARKNESS
BUT SOON THERE WILL BE A LIGHT
JUST GO YOU'VE FINALLY GOT YOUR FREEDOM
AND I'VE GOT MINE
JUST GO YOU'VE FINALLY GOT YOUR FREEDOM
AND I'VE GOT MINE
Track Name: BRECKINRIDGE
BRECKINRIDGE

THE RAIN CAME DOWN ON BRECKINRIDGE
THE STREET LIGHTS BARLEY OFF
SHE WAS BITTER LIKE THE STUFF
YOU FIND IN THE BOTTOM OF YOUR COFFEE CUP
IT WAS HARD TO SWALLOW
HARD TO THINK
THROAT SORE FROM ALL THE SMOKE
ONE LAST CIGGARETTE ONE LAST BEER
ONE LAST LINE OF COKE
SHE WAS NO TRUCK DRIVER
NO TWO TIMER
JUST A PLAIN OL' SILLY GIRL
SICK AND SAD WITH IDLE HANDS
LEFT TO DO THE DEVILS WORK

OH THAT RADIO PLAYED
A HARD RAINS GONNA FALL
DYLAN, AND TOWNES, AND PRINE
SINGING ROUNDS
AS THAT CLOUDED OL' SUN CAME UP

SHE THOUGHT IT BEST TO GET SOME REST
BUT PICKED UP HER GUITAR INSTEAD
SAT ON THE POOL TABLE
WHERE SHE FELT STABLE
PLAYED TO PEOPLE
GETTING THEIR MORNING PAPER
SHE LOOKED OUT THAT WINDOW
SAW THE CHILDREN CATCHING THE BUS
WONDERED WHERE HER MONEY HAD WENT
IF PUSHING SONGS WAS REALLY WORK

SHE SOLD THAT SONG FOR THE TRADE OF A TRUCK
PAID THE PUSHER MAN AND MOST OF HER DEBT
PACKED UP HER THINGS WITH THE DECISION
THAT CITY LIFE WASN'T GOOD FOR HER HEALTH
PUSHING THE PEN TRYING TO FIND WHERE YOU'VE BEEN
MIGHT JUST MAKE YOU A BUCK
BUT TO GET THERE, YOU'VE GOTTA FAIL
FALL DOWN FACE ON YOUR LUCK
Track Name: LISA
LISA

LISA FROM VIRGINA
A PRODUCT OF A SMALL TIME AFFAIR
GREW UP WITH STARS IN HER EYES
FLOWERS IN HER HAIR
SHE HAD THE LAUGHTER
THAT WAS IN HER FATHERS EYES
AND THE VENGENCE OF A LION
FROM HER MOTHERS SMILE
SHE PACKED UP HER COWBOY BOOTS
AND HER GUITAR
AND THE 15 JOURNALS
SHE'D FILLED UP SO FAR
SHE ARRIVED IN RICHMOND
SHE SAYS SHE DON'T REMEMBER NOW
SHE WASN'T EVEN OLD ENOUGH TO DRINK
BUT THE BARS LET HER PLAY ANYHOW
SHE MET A MAN
SIMPLE ENOUGH
BUT SHE DIDN'T KNOW THE BOTTLE
WAS HIS ONLY LOVE

OH LISA
MONA AIN'T GOT NOTHING ON YOUR SMILE
YOUR ONLY AIM WAS FOR PLEASING
BUT YOU CAN ONLY PLEASE A MAN FOR A LITTLE WHILE

LISA FROM VIRGINIA
DECIDED TO JUMP TRACK AND LEAVE TOWN
SIGNED THE DIVORCE PAPERS
WATCHED THAT BAR BURN DOWN
SHE ARRIVED IN LOUISVILLE
ON THE FOURTH OF JULY
HER HEART FELT LIKE A FIRE CRACKER
EXPLODING IN THE SKY
SHE MET A MAN
SIMPLE ENOUGH
BUT HE DIDN'T KNOW THE BOTTLE
WAS HER ONLY LOVE

OH LISA
MONA AIN'T GOT NOTHING ON YOUR SMILE
YOUR ONLY AIM WAS FOR PLEASING
BUT YOU CAN ONLY PLEASE A WOMAN FOR A LITTLE WHILE

LISA FROM VIRGINIA
A PRODUCT OF A SMALL TIME AFFAIR
ON A GOOD NIGHT YOU CAN SEE THE STARS IN HER EYES
AND FLOWERS IN HER HAIR
IF YOU SEE HER ON THAT FULL MOON
TELL HER I HOPE SHE'S DOING FINE
MAKE SURE SHE'S LAUGING
AND THAT SHE'S GOT THAT SMILE

OH LISA
MONA AIN'T GOT NOTHING ON YOUR SMILE
YOUR ONLY AIM WAS FOR PLEASING
BUT YOU CAN ONLY PLEASE THEM ALL FOR A LITTLE WHILE
Track Name: PEPPERMINTS AND HYMNALS
PEPPERMINTS AND HYMNALS

MY PAPAW WOULD STAND BESIDE ME IN THE PEW
PREACHER TALK OF SALVATION
AND ETERNITY
I WOULD JUST SIT THERE UNWRAPPING MY SWEETS
PEPPERMINTS AND HYMNALS
IS WHAT I TOOK WITH ME

MY MAMAW WOULD SIT THERE AND PUT ON LIP STICK
BEFORE CHURCH ON SUNDAY EVERY WEEK
SHE'D TELL ME DEAR CHILD
KEEP MY MINT IN MY CHEEK
SING THE WORDS YOU KNOW
AT LEAST HUM THE MELODY

OH LORD HAVE MERCY
OH LORD PLEASE SAVE MY SOUL
OH LORD FORGIVE ME
AND TAKE ME WHEN I GO

THAT SWEET TASTE I STILL SAVOR
STILL SMELL THE AGE OF THOSE BOOKS
THE LIQUOR ON THE BREATH OF THE VAGRANTS
THE CHOIR SOUNDING SWEET AS THOSE PEPPERMINTS
Track Name: RAGGED SQUARES OF COTTON
RAGGED SQUARES OF COTTON

RAGGED SQUARES OF COTTON
THREADED AND KNOTTED
QUILTED PIECES OF OUR HEARTS
OUR LOVE MAKING WAS GOOD
BUT OUR HEARTBREAK WAS BETTER
NOW YOU'RE JUST THE FOOL
WITH A SCARLET HANDWRITTEN LETTER

OH DEAR JOHN
SORRY TOOK SO LONG
HAD TO TRACK THE POST MAN DOWN
ON HIS DAILY WALK
I KNOW YOU MISUNDERSTOOD
BUT MY HEART WAS TIRED AND FETTERED
BLUE AS A BRUISE
HOPING THAT IT WOULD JUST GET BETTER

WRAPPED MYSELF IN RIBBON
MY HEART AT THE CORE
A MATRYOSHKA DOLL
STOICK AND WOOD
YOU TOOK ME A PART
LOOKING FOR MY WORTH
BUT WHAT YOU FOUND INSIDE
YOU DID NOT WANT BORN

THE PROMISE THAT YOU MADE
WAS NEVER SET IN STONE
YOU GAVE ME A GLASS RING
WELL I SHOULD HAVE KNOW
THE MOON AND THE SUN
A UNIVERSAL PARODOX
TWO PUZZLE PIECES
FOUND IN THE WRONG BOX
Track Name: UNINVITED
UNIVITED

I PUT MYSELF IN YOUR SHOES
EMPATHETIC FOR YOUR HEART
BUT WHEN YOU WALKED IN AND SAW HIM
I KNOW YOU MUST OF DROPPED
TO THE BOTTOM OF THE WELL
TO WHERE YOUR SCREAMS COULD NOT BE HEARD
YOU WERE JUST COMING FOR YOUR NEEDS
UNIVITED

SO PUT ON YOUR WALKING SHOES
SLAM DOWN THOSE TEQUILA BLUES
GO OUT TO VEGAS
STARE AT SOME PRETTY LIGHTS
YOU'LL WIN AND SOME YOU'LL LOSE
BUT THOSE THINGS WE DON'T CHOOSE
JUST LIKE WHEN WE SEE A STAR FALLING FROM THE SKY

AND I KNOW YOU'RE SITTING THERE
BEHIND A HEART HOT AS A FLAME
STARRING AT THE LAST SHOT
FROM A BOTTLE PUT AWAY
YOU'RE ANGRY
FEELING CRAZY
MIGHT HAVE PUNCHED THE WALL
CAUSE YOU WERE JUST COMING FOR YOUR NEEDS
UNINVITED

SHE HAD THE MOON ON HER SHOULDERS
SHE HAD THE STARS IN HER EYES
SHE HAD NO WAY OF KNOWING
SHE WAS HANGING YOU TO DIE
SHE HAD BOOTS MADE FOR WALKING
TOOK THEM OFF BY YOUR BED
BUT YOU COULDN'T STOP YOUR SUFFERING
SO NOW YOU BOTH SEE RED
Track Name: PLEASE FLY
PLEASE FLY

I LOOK IN YOUR EYES
AND I SEE THE OCEAN
AS IF SOMEONE HAD SET THEM ON FIRE
AND THE LIT WICK
OF A KEROSENE LANTERN
IN THE LIGHT IT SHINES
AND IF I WERE A BIRD
I'D FLY
OVER THE WATER
AND PUT OUT THE FLAMES
SIT IN YOUR LIGHTHOUSE TONIGHT

THE HOUSE ON THE SHORE
LIVES A WRITER
WITH PENS PENCILS AND BOOKS
WRITING DOWN THOUGHTS
NO ONE SHOULD HEAR
HOPING THAT NO ONE WILL LOOK
BUT IF I WERE A BIRD
I'D FLY
OVER SOME WINE
AND SIT ON YOUR TABLE
AND READ WHAT YOU WROTE TONIGHT

DOWN BY THE BAY
SITS A YOUNG SAILOR
WAITING TO GO OUT TO SEA
THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE
NOW WITH A NEW LOVER
A BAR STOOL HIS NEW COMPANY
BUT IF I WERE A BIRD
I'D FLY
OVER SOME ROSES
A BEAUTIFUL LADY
HOPES THAT HE SLEEPS WELL TONIGHT

I LOOK IN THE MIRROR
I SEE A REFLECTION
OF EACH OF THESE PEOPLE I KNOW
NO ONE KNOWS HOW THAT THEY GET HERE
OR HOW TO LIGHTEN THEIR LOAD
SO IF YOU ARE A BIRD
PLEASE FLY
OVER TO ME
AND PUT ON A RECORD
AND DANCE WITH ME TONIGHT
Track Name: REDIRECTION
REDIRECTION

HAD A DREAM ABOUT TOWNES VAN ZANDT
AND HE WAS MADE OF GOLD
BUT HE WAS SO DRUNK
WELL HIS TEETH THEY LOOKED LIKE COAL
ALL ALONG THE WALL LIKE A SUPREME COURT AFFAIR
WERE TWELVE WOODIE GUTHRIES
SHADED BRONZE TO GREY
A METAPHYSICAL CONSOLATION PRIZE
AWARDED TO THE ONE WITH LONLEY EYES
HAIR SO DARK AND MOOD SO BLUE
KINETICLY HOW THE OCEAN IT MOVES

AND THERE'S THAT HIPPY DIPPY BELLY BREATING
WELL I DO IT TIME TO TIME
I TAKE SOLACE IN THE HAPPINESS
FROM THE KINDNESS IN SMILES
AND IT MAY NOT BE JESUS CHRIST
BUT I BELIEVE THERE'S SOME HALF ASSED
WIZARDLY SMOOTH AND SILKY OUT THERE
MAGIC
I FEEL IM JOINING THE RANKS
OF THE DUSTY OLD BOTTLES
THE SAVORY OF CORKS
AND THE DROPS AT THE BOTTOM
I CAN'T CHANGE IN THE WAYS MY SONGS THEY SING
BUT I CAN ALWAYS REDIRECT THEM

IT'S A PERSONAL PRISON
MOVING FROM STAGE TO A BED
TOWN TO A CITY
MOUNTAINS THEN HELL
VISIONS ROAM TO HEAVEN
BUT NEVER KNOWING IF THEY'LL STAY
A ROAD PLOWED IN GRAVEL
HEADED WHERE IT'S PAVED
A SEA SICK GAME OF ROSES
CURTAIN CALLS AND VELVET ROPES
BUT THERE'S NO SEA SAW IN STARDOM
YOU DO, OR YOU DIE, OR YOU DON'T

QUESTIONS MISPERCEPTIONS
LISTS OF THINGS WE'VE GOTTA DO
A REDIRECTION, THE CORRECTION
OF ME AND YOU
Track Name: THE ARCHER
THE ARCHER

IN THE MOUNTAIN OF HER MIND
SHE WAS CALLING OUT YOUR NAME
LONELY AND BLIND
TO THE WINDS THAT BLEW HER WAY
SO SHE SAT DOWN AT BAR STOOL
STIRRING HER THOUGHTS WITH A STRAW
HE UNAWARE HE WAS THE ARCHER
AIMING FOR HER HEART
SHE WAS WEARY FROM A THEIF
WHO LAST HAD STOLE HER SMILE
HER HEART CLOSED LIKE A PINECONE
IN THE FOREST OF HER MIND
BUT THE OPPTIMISTIC SONG BIRD
FLEW TO HIS ADVANCE
FOR HER CRAVING TO BE CRADELED
MADE HER TAKE THE CHANCE

EVERGREEN
EYES DANCING SHINING LIKE THE SUN
EVERGREEN
PRAY AND THAT SKY WILL OPEN UP

HE HUNG HER UP TO DRY
WITH WORDS OF TRUTH THAT HURT
THAT HE WOULD BE LEAVING SOON
ONCE THE WEATHER TURNED
BUT WITH THE MYSTERY OF NATURE
THEIR HEARTS THEY OPENED UP
TANGLED IN THE SEEDS AND THE ARMS
OF THEIR FOREST FLOOR
CAT CURLED ROUND HER ANKLE
SHE LAYED WEARY ON THE BED
AFRAID OF WHAT HER HEART WAS FEELING
WOULD NOT BE HERS AT LAST
HE SMILED INTO HER BROKEN EYES
LAID HIS HAND UPON HER CHEST
TOLD HER THAT HE LOVED HER
ASKED IF SHE WOULD COME WITH HIM
