Track Name: Best I Can
Oh I'm sorry now
I've been chasing a storm
That blows through a man
Lord you know I do best that I can

People say what they want to me
Thinking that I don't already see
That I got a bad man
Lord you know I do best that I can

Baby you're break lights are awfully red
Only human nature to want to stop and see the wreck
And any broken woman would understand
Lord you know I do best that I can

See baby I been working for next to free
I ain't got no money, hope or dignity
You know I'm so lonesome I can hardly stand
Lord you know I do best that I can

Track Name: Some Time Ago
Some time ago
Some time ago
I met you
And now I know
Now I know
Baby it's through

You walk out the door
Your eyes are low
And your shirt's not on
The grass ain't mowed
Around the couch in your from lawn
Your skin's so pale
And baby love's been a little hard on you

I watch her talk
I watch her talk
When she's all alone
She ain't got no smoke
She ain't got no light
She ain't got a home
ohhh......

And she walks the streets
Her eyes are low
And her shirts half-on
And a parking lot is what she's got
As her front lawn
And it seems to me ma'am
Love's been a little hard on you

Track Name: Roll Me On
Did you like what we did
Did you hear what I said
That I won’t go on without you

Polish copper for your time
I’m in line, and I ain’t fine
With the price I pay for you

Did I lie, did you know
I’m in love and I won’t go
I won't go on…without you

Pay me off, roll me on
Down the river until I’m gone
And a strong man will forget what he wants to
We both know that I’ll go
Underneath, nice and slow
And a strong man will forget what he wants to

Fading pictures, little frames
Leather book with all the names
Of people we both use to know

Heaven’s high, I’m so low
I ain’t got much to show
For the price I pay for you

Did I lie, did you know
I’m in love and I won’t go
I won't go on…without you

Pay me off, roll me on
Down the river until I’m gone
And a strong man will forget what he wants to
We both know that I’ll go
Underneath, nice and slow
And a strong man will forget what he wants to

Track Name: Lowdownville
I was born in this town
I grew up feeling down
Ain’t but one road running through
Ain’t much for me to do

Lowdownnville is where I live
Lowdownville is where I met you
Sun shines when you’re around
Not today in Lowdownville

Take my car and drive down
To the other end of town
Tracks running on
Summer birds are gone

How many times have I been last
How many days have passed
Since I loved you
Since I loved you

I was born in this town
I grew up feeling down
Ain’t but one road running through
Ain’t much for me to do

Lowdownnville is where I live
Lowdownville is where I met you
Sun shines when you’re around
Not today in Lowdownville


See my life, see my face
See the years that I have chased
This love
And I’ve lost you

Turn around, turn around
You will lose your heart and will
In Lowdownville
In Lowdownville

I was born in this town
I grew up feeling down
Ain’t but one road running through
Ain’t much for me to do

Lowdownnville is where I live
Lowdownville is where I met you
Sun shines when you’re around
Not today in Lowdownville

Track Name: Why Don't He Love Me?
This city called my name when I was 18 years old
Chasing fortune and fame, but I was never told
That a working man, he ain’t got the time
To fix the things he broke, like this heart of mine

You see, I was raised, to be real brave
Not to be afraid, not to run away
But the trouble here, ain’t just in my mind
Ain’t no peace here I can find

And everybody knows I all alone
Young and stupid, and far from home
I love a man who don’t love me
Why don’t he love me?

One hundred dollar bills, to board the bus
Now I won’t cry and I won’t fuss over you, no no
Close the door driver-man, and ring your bell
And drive me out of this living hell

You see he touched me here, and he kissed me there
And he bit my tongue, and he pulled my hair
And he laid me down and he stole my life
Like a greedy thief with a dirty knife

And everybody knows I all alone
Young and stupid, and far from home
I love a man who don’t love me
Why don’t he love me?

Track Name: Dark Night of the Soul
I see a stranger move through town
Stranger don’t let you fears turn you around
I seen the devil carry a cross
I seen the man with all the maps get lost around here

Darkest story ever told
Darkest night ever to be known
Light your torches boys and get your horse
Bring you lynching rope and you gun of course

When they got there, nothing new
When they got there, no bullets flew
Oh this feeling, got your reeling and it won’t let you go
Dark night of the soul

Bloodied brains and tattered hats
Your mind lost the war my friend, and that, that was that
Seven days and seven nights,
I spent in dark, now Lord, let there be light in my mind

We got a criminal to catch the leader said
And kill the doubt that’s slips into my head
He hangs out at the edge of town by the poets well
You see him boys, make him run like hell, ooohhh

When they got there, nothing new
When they got there, no bullets flew
Oh this feeling, got your reeling and it won’t let you go
Dark night of the soul

Track Name: Little Gun
Turn around little gun
You’re still so young
And you’re having fun
Now you killed someone

My baby had me down
Keeps on running round on me
Only a matter of time
Until her body is found

Appaloosa and little gun
Tearing through the desert sun
Inside my mind
Inside my mind

Blue ribbon winning gun
Pretty pony I had won
And all my dreams
Have died so young

Polish my little gun
Think I’ll have some fun
There is a man across town
With my heart

Polish my little gun
Think I’m gonna kill someone
There is a man across town
With my heart

Little gun is on my tongue
I won’t stop until I’m done
There is a man across town
With my heart

Track Name: 1974
She looked up at me
At the corner café today
Before you eat that there baby
Make sure you can pay for it

If rich is lucky, I guess I’m poor
My eyes are tired and my head is sore
There's a hole in my pocket
World's falling through
But I ain’t got no doubt since I met you babe

So I done wasted
About all my years
Sold out and I faked it
And cried too many tears

If brains are luck, guess I’m the fool
Life makes you tired, life makes you cruel
There's a hole in my pocket
World's falling through
But I ain’t got no doubt since I met you babe

Under the reader board sign
Glowing lights flowing by
Where you been all my life?
Where the hell was I?

My baby was born in 1974
He came at a time when I thought there wasn’t more for me
He came at a time when I thought there wasn’t more
My baby was born in 1974

My baby was born in 1974
He came at a time when I thought there wasn’t more for me
He came at a time when I thought there wasn’t more
My baby was born in 1974

Track Name: Cheatin' Mind
A cheating mind
It ain’t hard to find
And my broken feet
Lead me back each week to you
And you done me wrong

A cheating mind
It ain't hard to find
And my broken heart
Leads me back to the start with you
And you done me wrong
Yeah…you done me wrong

My babe’s got a cheating mind
I know you got a cheating mind

A cheating mind
It ain’t hard to find
Got a ball and chain
And a crooked brain for you
Since you done me wrong

A cheating mind
It ain’t hard to find
Got myself to blame
When you say her name
And you done me wrong
Yeah, you done me wrong

My babe’s got a cheating mind
I know you got a cheating mind

A cheating mind
It ain’t hard to find
And it’s plain to see
You ain't thinking of me
You ain’t thinking of me babe
And you done me wrong

My babe’s got a cheating mind
I know you got a cheating mind

Track Name: Clean as Coal
When he walks, he walks loud
And when he talks, he talks proudly
And I know when he goes down
He moves so slow

And he’s in my guts, in my brains
In my blood, in my veins
I got shake, I got soul
And a mind as clean a s coal for you babe

I want a radio that plays more than AM
I want to make it with my man
I want a paycheck that covers more than one week of my living
I know you understand

That he’s in my guts, in my brains
In my blood, in my veins
I got shake, I got soul
And a mind as clean a s coal for you babe

What I need is a cowboy
To keep me standing straight
I don’t want no one trick pony
Who will only keep me up late

And he’s in my guts, in my brains
In my blood, in my veins
I got shake, I got soul
And a mind as clean a s coal for you babe

Track Name: Night After Night
To Airway Heights she’d drive
When she want to die
Down a lonely road
I watch my Momma go
Night after night, night after night

You’re not the only one
You think I didn’t know
When I learned to love
I learned to let you go
Night after night, night after night

She said, be strong girl
Work hard girl
You’ll go far girl
She said I love you
Take what you need girl
Don’t turn around
My Momma taught me how to be down

I can hear the train
I see your broken face
And my faith is gone
Without a trace
Into the night, into the night

He was a gentleman
He was a lying man
He was a cheating man
I don’t understand
Why it last so long, Momma he done you wrong

She said, be strong girl
Work hard girl
You’ll go far girl
She said I love you
Take what you need girl
Don’t turn around
My Momma taught me how to be down

Track Name: Lovin' You
Sun is cold today
On you're silver car
You come take me away
And lovin' you ain't hard for me to do
Lovin' you ain't hard for me

Brown hair, blue eyes
You are all through me
And I could lose you baby
But lovin' you ain't hard for me

I have grown the way I will
My life has been mostly
Uphill
But loving you ain't hard for me

And I know I'm afraid still
My life has been mostly
Uphill
But lovin' you ain't hard for me
No lovin' you ain't hard form me
