    Pretty Girl from Annapolis

    Pretty Girl from Annapolis

    Oh don't you look at me that way
    I would be honest but I don't know how to say
    I've been lazy with my love
    Can't you give me a chance to make it up to you

    I'm always chasing some far off dream
    My lady I know it's not easy for you to see
    But I've lied to myself
    And your lovelyness no it doesn't help
    No your beautiful smile don't help

    My dreams are lies
    That I have tried to ignore
    My dreams fly me
    To a place near Baltimore

    And I love this moment we're in
    Though we might never see this moment again
    May you find all that you need
    An easy way to forget about me
    May you forget about me

    My dreams are lies
    That I have tried to ignore
    My dreams fly me
    To a place near Baltimore

    And if I don't make it to the spring
    May you catch the joy that a melody brings
    From my dear brothers ragged six string
    Singing the songs we're embarrassed to sing
    May you never be embarrassed to sing

    My dreams are lies
    That I have tried to ignore
    My dreams fly me
    To a place near Baltimore

    Love Like the Movies

    Love Like the Movies

    So you want to be in love like the movies
    But in the movies they're not in love at all
    And with a twinkle in their eyes
    They're just saying their lines
    So we can't be in love like the movies

    Now in the movies they make it look so perfect
    And in the background they're always playing the right song
    And in the ending there's always a resolution
    But real life is more than just two hours long

    So you want to be in love like the movies
    But in the movies they're not in love at all
    And with a twinkle in their eyes
    They're just saying their lines
    So we can't be in love like the movies

    Well you can freeze frame any moment from a movie
    Or run the whole damn thing backwards from reel to reel
    But I don't see one single solitary light technician
    Or one single camera in this moonlit field

    I don't want to be in love like the movies
    Cause in the movies they're not in love at all
    With a twinkle in their eyes
    They're just saying their lines
    So we can't be in love like the movies.

    And with a twinkle in their eyes
    They're just saying their lines
    And so we can't be in love like the movies.
    Nooooooo
    We can't be in love like movies

    Walking for You

    Walking for You

    Ain't got no money
    But I've got time
    I don't care about the sunshine
    But I love to see you smile

    So you say you're lonesome
    Baby dry your eyes
    Well there's a road to your door step
    I'll be there by morning's light

    But I don't have an answer
    For when you ask me why
    I know I love you baby like I know I never ever
    Gonna let you ever say goodbye
    Say goodbye, Say goodbye

    I've got an old Ford pickup truck
    I got a Cadillac
    And I don't care how I get there
    Transportation can't hold me back

    But I don't have an answer
    For when you ask me why
    I know I love you baby like I know I never ever
    Gonna let you ever say goodbye
    Say goodbye, Say goodbye

    Cause I've had bad lovers, yeah
    That walked to my back door
    I've wasted years walkin' for them gals
    That's how I know you're worth walking for

    So you say you're so in love
    Well baby so am I
    And I don't care if I'm on the road
    I am always by your side

    But I don't have an answer
    When you ask me why
    I know I love you baby like I know I never ever
    Gonna let you ever say goodbye
    Say goodbye, Say goodbye

    Do You Love Him

    Do You Love Him

    Do you love him? Do you love him? Do you love him, my dear?
    Does he hold you? Does he hug you? Does he keep you near?
    And as you lie together, does he whisper in your ear?
    Do you love him? Do you love him? Do you love him, my dear?

    In the evening, those tired evenings, at twilights first glare
    Does he lay in your lap? Do you play with his hair?
    And when he falls asleep, Do you just stare?
    Do you love him? Do you love him? Do you love him, my dear?

    Late in the night when you fear the unknown
    Does he warm up your mind? As you chill to the bone
    I do love you, I do feel you, Each day and night

    But I canít tell right from wrong, or fear from insight But you always knew everything and that is what is clear
    Do you love him? Do you love him? Do you love him, my dear?

    Smoke in Our Lights

    Smoke in Our Lights

    You're not a girl, you're a town
    You're snow on the ground
    You're my first year in school
    You're the words in a song that Hoon sang to me
    And all around my memories, you dance

    You're not a girl, you're a car
    You're a red Trans Am
    You're 90 miles an hour
    We never get caught cause there's no cops around
    And no roads like this, downtown

    Why'd we have to change
    It all seems so fine
    We'll go our own ways
    We're both asking
    Why'd we have to change
    It all seems so fine
    We'll go our own ways
    We're both asking, why

    You're not a girl, you're the night of the homecoming game
    You're the voice in my head
    Just begging me to stay
    You're the smoke in our lights as we sped away
    To catch the moonlight on the graves

    You're not a girl, you're a waltz
    You're a canopy bed
    You're June to August
    You're the back and forth sway of the hammock all day
    When I asked you what did you say?

    Why'd we have to change
    It all seems so fine
    We'll go our own ways
    We're both asking
    Why'd we have to change
    It all seems so fine
    We'll go our own ways
    We're both asking, why

    November Blue

    November Blue

    If I werenít leaviní, would I catch you dreaminí
    And if I werenít gonna be gone now, could I take you home
    And if I told you I loved you, would it change what you see
    And if I were leaviní, would you stay with me
    And if I had money, would it all look good
    And if I had a job now, like a good man should
    And if I came to you tomorrow, and said letís run away
    Would you roll like the wind does, baby would you stay

    My heart is danciní, to a November tune
    And I hope that you hear it, singing songs about you
    I sing songs of sorrow, because youíre not around
    See, babe Iím gone tomorrow, Baby follow me down

    I donít know why I have to, but this man must move on
    I love my time here, didnít know ítil I was gone
    November shadows, shade November change
    November spells sweet memory, the season blue remains
    November spells sweet memory, the season blue remains

    Your yellow hair is like the sunlight, however sweet it shines
    Bit by the cold of December, Iím warm beside your smile

    Oh lady, tell me Iím not leaving, youíre everything I dreamed
    Iím killing myself thinking, Iíve fallen like the leaves
    Iím killing myself thinking, Iíve fallen like the leaves

    Wanted Man

    Wanted Man

    Till I became a wanted man,
    I never owned a gun,
    But now they hunt me like a mountain cat,
    And I'm always, always, always on the run

    I killed poor Jed Bryant
    In a bad Laredo fight,
    Killed him with my bare hands
    For the girl I loved that night.
    Jed's brother's out to get me,
    He's comin' with a gang
    I'd rather shoot it out, by God, than let 'em see me hang

    Bullet in my shoulder,
    Blood runnin' down my vest,
    Twenty in the posse,
    And they're never gonna let me rest.

    Till I became a wanted man,
    I never owned a gun,
    But now they hunt me like a mountain cat,
    And I'm always, always, always on the run

    Spangles on her red dress
    Laughter in her voice,
    When he tried to put his hands on her
    My heart left me no choice.
    But was she really worth it?
    I guess I'll never know,
    She'll be drinkin' someone else's rye when I'm six feet below.

    Bullet in my shoulder,
    Blood runnin' down my vest,
    Twenty in the posse,
    And they're never gonna let me rest.

    Till I became a wanted man,
    I never owned a gun,
    But now they hunt me like a mountain cat,
    And I'm always, always, always on the run.

    My Last Song to Jenny

    My Last Song to Jenny

    Oh tell me please
    that I don't have to read
    between the lines
    Hey this is me
    and you don't have to keep
    something heavy on your mind
    Did you sleep?
    Not a wink
    Well neither did I

    I've never been
    too good at readin' in
    between the lines
    So babe spell it out
    but you don't have to shout
    when you're talking to me
    Do you care?
    Do you care?
    Are you there?
    Well neither am I

    Don't lock your door
    everyone is poor
    between the lines
    And I could never steal
    the sadness you feel
    when your changing you mind
    Oh my dear
    Can you hear?
    Well neither can I

    I want to live
    and I want you to live
    happy and free
    But I don't know how
    to separate the now
    from what used to be
    Will you sleep?
    Not a wink
    Well neither will I

    The Traveling Song

    And I will travel
    Yeah, I will travel

    So I will travel
    Yeah I will travel
    I will travel 'till my country home is found

    Well Chestertown (lets go)
    Albany (lets go)

    No pretty girl can slow me down
    I'll travel 'till my country home is found
    So I will travel
    I will travel
    I will travel till my country home is found
    Yeah, I will travel
    I will travel
    I will travel 'till my country home is found

    Pretty Girl from Raleigh

    Who sold you this anger
    I suspect it was your friends
    Or was it a stranger
    Convincing you that this was the end

    And I would like to thank you
    For coming round and doing this
    My nights have been pretty painful
    Losing that pain was always the trick

    You always said that I was lying
    That I was just a selfish man
    But I all ready gave it all away
    So you can let go of my selfish hand

    So bye bye bye bye bye
    I ain't got time to watch you cry
    Cause I've been drinking seven hours now
    Sympathy is a waste of my high

    And I would like to say it hurts me (but it don't)
    That I don't know just what to do (but I do)
    But it don't hurt when you're just killing time
    I was killing time and I think that you knew
