Track Name: Sky Blue DeVille
In a sky blue DeVille/ you were my one and only
on the window sill/ you rest your head and it was lovely
oh I really wanna go/ back to then with you my friend

We were playing cards/ you said I was the jack of all trades
you were the queen of hearts/ reigning your love on me like spades
oh I really wanna go back to then with you my friend

Now I’m here on a mission/ baby i’m wishing we might stay
back in the olden days

I’ll take you round the block/ a time or two like we used to
and at the soda pop shop/ we’ll be rockin’ round the clock bopping to the jukebox
oh I really wanna go back to then with you my friend

If I could do it all again/ woulda settled down yeah we coulda got married
but this show I’m in/ won’t be slowing down til I’m dead and buried
oh I really wanna go back to then with you my friend

Now I’m here on a mission baby i’m wishing upon my star
for a getaway car

I could sing a song with no one listening at all
and up on the bluffs by the lake you and me in the hot night air oh Dixie
skating at the rainbow hangin’ at Charlie’s Record Shop
walking down Main Street to 3rd to Alabama
Track Name: Restless Soul
Seventy-five all the way to Nashville/ my barstool baby at the Legends Bar
Hank and friends down by the river/ my Georgia home it ain’t too far

Green green mountains of Kentucky/ such a clear blue Kentucky sky
storm’s a-rollin’ ’cross Indiana/ Champaign almost passed me by

*Whistle’s blowin’ for the next town/ think I’ll pack my things and go
baby I’ll write you from the highway/ guess I’m just a restless soul

Pullin’ in to golden Colorado/ with the great sunrise from the eastern plains
Red red glow of the mighty Rockies/ cool cool breeze of a Denver rain

Country girls in a lonely western summer/ the Ashtray Hearts in ole Cheyenne
cuttin’ through the black hills of the morning/ with the purple sands of the bad Badlands

*Whistle’s blowin’ for the next town/ think I’ll pack my things and go
baby I’ll write you from the highway/ guess I’m just a restless soul
Track Name: Days to Come
Living a lonely life living a lonely life
I feel I’m on the outside looking living like a passerby

Got too late to call/ it got too late to call
I never wanna wake you up/ sleeping in your slumber

*In days to come/ baby I’ll be by your side
You beat your drum/ so easy for me to decide
I’m comin’ for your love

Even the rains come down/ even the rains come down
You know when your hearts breaks in/ living in a cheap motel

She’s a lady of the night/ she’s a lady of the night
She’ll never get a piece of my soul/ wrapped in you so tight

*In days to come baby I’ll be by your side
Under the gun/ funny how we feel so alive
When it’s all on the line

When I wander will you take me back again
It’s a wonder you still believe in me

*In days to come baby I’ll be by your side
Under the gun/ funny how we feel so alive
When it’s all on the line
Track Name: Drivin' in the Rain
I’m drivin’ in the rain/ going back home again
They say i’m living a dream/ it’s gonna break me in the end

Two hands on the wheel/ and your hardened like steel
A reed in the wind/ through thick and through thin

*And it casts a grey cloud/ a doubt in my mind
It’s a selfish love that I have shown
The king on the throne

Sleep it won’t come/ til the nighttime is done
And you’re picking up speed with the amphetamines

You don’t feel the change/ when you’re home on the range
A rancher in disguise/ but they won’t sympathize

*And it casts a grey cloud/ a doubt in my mind
It’s a selfish love that I have shown
The king on the throne

Just a shadow of what used to be/ I got a paranoid mind
Roller coasters and magazines/ and a hollowed out smile
While bluebottle flies swarming at my side keeping me alive

*And it casts a grey cloud/ a doubt in my mind
It’s a selfish love that I have shown
The king on the throne
Track Name: In a Southern Way
The lights in the graveyard/ like candles in paper bags
it’s a carnival if I didn’t know better/ it could be a fair if I didn’t know

Farm fields of Georgia appear ’round this midnight curve
Can I find the nerve to find myself/ am I trying to live like somebody else?

*Coulda been gone baby I just never did leave
It’s my home and I long to stay
Maybe I was wrong and underachieved
Stoned in a southern way
I got stoned in a southern way

They sold dead bulbs of marigolds/ and everybody buys what the preacher told
Life’s a barbecue in the afternoon

Shine a path like a tarmac/ clear the way we won’t ever look back
There’s gotta be something better in another land
I’ll write you a note in a rock n roll band

*Coulda been gone baby I just never did leave
It’s my home and I long to stay
Maybe I was wrong and underachieved
Stoned in a southern way
I got stoned in a southern way

Don’t wanna think just about myself
Oh if only we can make it then you will know
You’re where I wanna be

*Coulda been gone baby I just never did leave
It’s my home and I long to stay
Maybe I was wrong and underachieved
Stoned in a southern way
I got stoned in a southern way
Track Name: Goodnight Nobody
I’m running circles in the big city
I know I should be happy in the big city

Slip into the bait shop and tackle bar/ looking for some company
Grey light on the buildings/ grey light on the buildings

Dusty flag tattered stripes and stars
Cold air stings it makes me cry at least I’ll say that’s why

Cover away the scars now/ and the faint tattoos from a long ago drunken night
Build yourself a bright day/ build yourself a bright day

*Goodnight nobody have we come very far
All I feel is nothing just a heavy heart

Broken bird on a hard sidewalk
You listen to hear the words it’d say if it could talk

See the barge passing slowly by
Worn lady with her torch raised high
Out here eating key lime pie at the edge of the world

Red Hook in the rain/ see the sailors pour into port in the same way in these same
Silent streets of cobblestone and now you’re feeling all alone
All quiet on the inside all quiet on the inside

*Goodnight nobody have we come very far
All I feel is nothing just this heavy heart
Track Name: Jesse's Mind
Jesse worked in the fields by day/ plantin’ cotton with Annie Mae
under the hot Missouri sun

She fixed him meals sent him off to play/ washed his hair and kept the dirt away
said he was like her only son

She’s a proud woman and she’s mean and tall/ got a stone face and a mountain jaw
and she’s busy killin’ time

There’s a curtain blowing with the window breeze/ and a black dress flowin’ to her knees
hangin’ in the corner like a vine

*Be still be still Zerelda til that day will come
there’ll be flowers for the coffin/ you can put that black dress on
you can put that black dress on

Frank’s in the woods back behind the farm/ where Jesse ’bout blew off his arm
and the militia men come down

Water’s cold you can see your breath ain’t got a whole lotta runnin’ left in you
paddle that boat without a sound

The cavalry of the 25th go/ chasin' all the bushwhack secesh/
down every river and every road

There’s the mill and the Baptist church/ Old Man Boggs standin’ in the lurch
there’s the bridge and all he knowed

*Be still be still Zerelda til that day will come
there’ll be flowers for the coffin/ you can put that black dress on
you can put that black dress on

So go back go back to your tobacco/ with your gospel plow and your wooden hoe
she’s a-waitin’ for you there

You’re a gentleman all through and through/ you only do what you gotta do
but in this life there’s just one care

You could live all clean and good but you ain’t mean you’re misunderstood
it’s a fight worth many lives

Can’t stop now you always taste the thrill/ you kill to shoot and you shoot to kill
and nothing’s resting heavy on Jesse’s mind

*Be still be still Zerelda til that day will come
there’ll be flowers for the coffin/ you can put that black dress on
you can put that black dress on
Track Name: Where Our Love Is
Baby I wanna know I wanna know where our love is
Don’t bring me down don’t bring me down

Baby I’m going out I’m leaving town where our love is
Don’t bring me down don’t bring me down

And the captain calls “All aboard” as the steamboat whistle blows
and so the story goes/ I’m bound to leave you I’m bound to leave you

And all the girls I’ve known I keep ’em in my heart where our love is
Don’t worry now don’t bring me down

Babe a little rain must fall we can make it through it all from where our love is
Don’t bring me down don’t hold me down

And the captain calls “All aboard” as the steamboat whistle blows
and so the story goes/ I’m bound to leave you I’ll see you when I’m home

So many places I wanna go
So many faces so many traces of love all around
Oh the patterns and shapes of lives to be found
To be known to be sung to be grown

Baby I got a song I wanna sing about where our love is
Don’t bring me down don’t bring me down
Track Name: Highway of Your Love
A woman who shall compare
The rise and fall ocean in her stare

Belonging yes you are mine
Through doubts and trials
Across the songlines in the dreamtime

I’m riding down the highway of your love
Only makes me feel a little stronger
Riding down the highway of your love
Can we make it last a little longer

Longing I must confess
To be touched by the hem of her dress

Parting in the rain
Now I’m changed I wanna be with you for life

I’m riding down the highway of your love
Only makes me feel a little stronger
Riding down the highway of your love
Can we make it last a little longer
