    The Traveling Song

    The Traveling Song

    Well I guess if my daddy hadn't brought me up
    Down a long dirt road in a pickup truck
    I'd feel alright, beneath the city lights
    Couldn't leave the city lights it just ain't right

    I was born out west of Cheyenne town
    While my ma and pa was ramblin' 'round
    I'm a rambler too, but I'm country bound
    I'll travel till my country home is found
    And I will travel
    Yeah, I will travel
    I will travel 'till my country home is found

    Well a country song on the radio
    Country star but what do you know
    He's a city boy singin' country tunes
    I'm a country boy with those city blues
    So I will travel
    Yeah I will travel
    I will travel 'till my country home is found

    Well Chestertown (lets go)
    Albany (lets go)
    Neptune (lets go)
    Pittsburgh (let's go)
    Cleveland town (let's go)

    I've got the wheels to ride and the wheels to run,
    Some say I got rabbit in my blood
    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

    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

    Sorry Man

    Sorry Man

    Your mama doesn't like me
    She thinks I'm a sorry man
    When she tells her friends about me
    She says I'm a sorry man
    And she asks you each day
    Why would you stay with a sorry man
    Well I was doing my best
    Just trying to impress, still a sorry man
    And I've got news for your ma
    I'm the best she ever saw
    No one could love your daughter like I do

    Your mama told you father
    She said I'm a sorry man
    So he told me not to ever
    Come back here again
    So I told your dear old daddy
    That he can't keep us apart
    Because it's you and not your parents
    Who can break my heart
    And I've got news for your ma
    I'm the best she ever saw
    No one could love your daughter like I do

    Well I tried to tell your mama
    But I didn't want to fight
    Well they'll be the same tomorrow
    So we're leaving here tonight
    Tomorrow they'll be waking
    To a sad sorry dawn
    And then they'll be sorry
    When they see that we're gone
    Cause I've got news for your ma
    I'm the best she ever saw
    No one could love your daughter like I do

    Me and God

    Me and God

    Well I know a preacher he's a real good man
    He speaks from The Good Book and his hand
    And helps all people when he can
    But me and God don't need a middle man

    Well I found God in a soft woman's hair
    A long days work and a good sittin' chair
    The ups and downs of the treble clef lines
    And five miles ago on an interstate sign
    My God, my God and I don't need a middle man
    My God, my God and I don't need a middle man

    Now I don't doubt that The Good Book is true
    What's right for me may not be right for you
    To church on Sunday I'll stand beside
    All the hurtin' people with the fear in their eyes
    And I thank the Lord for the country land
    Just like Paul I thank him for my hands
    And I don't know if my soul is safe
    Sometimes I use curse words when I pray
    My God, my God and I don't need a middle man

    Pretty Girl from Raleigh

    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 ainít got time to watch you cry
    Cause Iíve been drinking seven hours now
    Sympathy is a waste of my high

    And I would like to say it hurts me (but it donít)
    That I donít know just what to do (but I do)
    But it donít hurt when youíre just killing time
    I was killing time and I think that you knew

    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?

    But I just ainít that mean
    So I go and get my murder tools
    I throw them in the lake
    Gonna steal me an automobile
    And drive so far away
    Now I am a fugitive

    And I put him in the grave.

    You listen close to me
    That woman gonna bring you pain
    Your heart is gonna bleed
    But it ainít worth the trouble
    The sufferiní or the grief
    A bleeding heart is better than the penitentiary
    I killed Sallyís lover
    One dark and dreary day
    Sally got another
    And I got sent away
    Somebody get my shotgun
    Somebody get my blade
    Sallyís been laying with another man
    And I set him in his grave

    Pretty Girl from Locust

    Pretty Girl from Locust

    Careful, not to say that I don't care
    or haven't, or can't, or will not again
    Winter didn't die, she was murdered
    and you are the culprit, I am the same

    It's only right, it's only right
    For you to fall in love with me
    Give me a life, give me a life
    Give me tonight, it's only right

    Thirty days alone with the savior
    an angel, a devil, rapture and smoke
    And I'm careful, just not to say that I miss you
    Cause sometimes, I guess I still miss myself

    It's only right, it's only right
    For you to fall, in love with me
    Give me a life, give me a life
    Give me tonight, it's only right

    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

    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

    Pretty Girl form Annapolis

    Pretty Girl form 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

    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

    Offering

    Offering

    Babe I'm Lost

    Cause I don't know what to say
    Hmmm I love you
    Want to make you my wife someday

    Don't wanna steal you
    Of a young woman's light
    To me it's perfect
    Just wanna do you right

    And I've known others
    And I've loved others too
    But I loved them cause they were stepping stones
    On a staircase to you

    Sometimes I act foolish
    I don't know what to do
    Please babe try not to judge me
    For my offering is true

    And I dream of children
    We can call our own
    Watch 'em run around in the front yard
    From the front porch of our home

    To me it's perfect
    Just wanna do you right
