Track Name: Easy Answers
You’ve been a busy bee
When I needed you close to me
I work as hard as I can
You say you want a richer man

Seems like everything’s changing all too quickly
I just blame it on aging
Sickly round the past my memories swerve
Lean it to the left when you’re going around the curve
You gonna get what you deserve

You knew it would be easy rebounding in Memphis
When you knew all the boys already
Same old fool had his eye on you
Since before we was going steady
That was high school, baby

I don’t need to tell you
Back off kid I ain’t got no lies to sell you
If there’s one thing that you don’t need, honey
It’s a hard luck education

Down here we got

Track Name: The Flood
I got a girl, man she lives up town
She’s all right
Has my child and she knows much better
then to tell my wife

She got a way of wearing her skirt
High up above her knee
I may be by the river
Or working on the house
She’s looking for me
Yes, you know she’s looking for…
I went down to the power station
After my lights when out
There was a man there sleeping on the steps
Wondering what I’d come to see about

I asked him anybody been walking through the doors
Turning the lights back on
He said:
“It’s kinda hard to fix
A problem sometimes
When nobody says that it’s wrong”
They don’t say that it’s…

It takes more than money to buy salvation
When you’re shopping at the devil’s store
I seen enough of this drowning and moaning
Don’t want anymore

How long we gonna be hold up here
Waiting for the end to come
Hard to imagine anybody coming any time soon
When you’re nowhere and nothing and no one
Nobody baby
Track Name: Too Cool For Love
Billy, get off that cocaine
It’s holding you back
And you know that shit’ll kill you
It’s a fact

Sally, slow down your mustang
You’re driving 99
You can run the red lights all down main street, baby
But you can’t slow time

Too cool for love
Too cool for love
Too cool to ever get enough
Too cool
For love

Anybody with a window
Can decide when it’s time to fly
You still got some walking left, baby?
Hey, so do I

Anybody with the muscle
Can get their love for free
But that won’t buy you compassion
From me

Too cool for love
Too cool for love
Too cool to ever get enough
Too cool
For love

Too cool for love
Too cool for love
Too cool to ever get enough
Too cool
For love

I am thinking of

You've made such terrible mistakes, girl
You've made such terrible mistakes, love
I think you know the one’s that

You've made such terrible Mistakes, Girl
You've made such terrible Mistakes, Love

Back when you told me
That I was your man
And When I needed you
you'd be close at hand

"Just call my name boy
I won't be far behind"
Whatever made you go and change your mind

You've made such terrible mistakes, girl
You've made such terrible mistakes, love
I think you know the one's that
I am thinking of

You've made Such terrible mistakes, girl
You've made such terrible mistakes, love

Hey come on Baby hurry on home
And I'll forgive you all you done wrong
Someday you'll need me
and I'll be gone
Don't say I'm sorry, honey

You've made such terrible mistakes, girl
You've made such terrible mistakes, love
I think you know the one's that
I am thinking of

You've made such terrible mistakes, girl
You've made such terrible mistakes, love
I think you know the one's that

Track Name: Tennessee Maybe
Louisville to Austin
Don’t you know that’s a mighty long ride
When I reach Texarkana
All you playboys step aside

It’s not that I want blood
Maybe a little that’s only natural

And besides you’re only flattering yourselves
I’m taking my bride
And we’re gonna have a baby

In Tennessee…
Maybe

In Tennessee…
Maybe

If nervous is a bottle
Pour it out and drink it down
And I’ll be seeing double
By the time I reach the town

It’s not that I’m afraid
Though I haven’t seen her in such a long time

But is it me who she wants or just protection
And will she
Still let me call her baby

In Tennessee…
Maybe

In Tennessee…
Maybe
Track Name: Samson
Standing outside the gates of heaven
Waiting there years they won’t unlock this door
They won’t let me in
They won’t let me in

I’m headed back downtown
To find me that road to sin

Everyone said I had the light of the gods
Shining out my eyes like dinner light
But I know they was wrong
I know they was wrong

I don’t my waiting
I’m just sorry I was good for so long

If I had my way
I would be like Samson
I’d be fighting them lions, boys
Straight on down to the ground

If I had my way
I would be like Samson
I would tear this building down

If I had my way
I would be like Samson
And I would give everything
To ladies like Delilah downtown

I would give everything
To ladies like Delilah downtown

I would give everything
To ladies like Delilah downtown

Well the Judge looked at me
Said I was a cold blooded killer
He could tell by the glare that I had in my eyes
I never killed no man
I never killed no man

I just looked down one day
Found a smoking gun in my hand

My ass is all wet from sitting on clouds
Eyes can’t see the pearly gates are so bright
I never treated you unkind
I never treated you unkind

I never took anything from anybody, baby
I was just born with a criminal mind

If I had my way
I would be like Samson
I’d be fighting them lions, boys
Straight on down to the ground

If I had my way
I would be like Samson
I would tear this building down

If I had my way
I would be like Samson
And I would give everything
To ladies like Delilah downtown

I would give everything
To ladies like Delilah downtown

I would give everything
To ladies like Delilah downtown

Come on baby you can shave my hair
My strength of would be that of a natural man

One of these nights around twelve O’clock
This old world gonna reel and rock
Track Name: Say A Prayer
If you come see me I promise
To always be good and true
But I know now you cannot be honest
So I cannot be anything to you

Now I waited on you when you were a princess
Baby how could I know
That any kingdom of yours would prove fruitless
When you’d become queen of the ice and snow

Baby say a prayer for me
If you care for me

Take off the dress you wear for me
Stand bare for me

Because we never had any reason
To cover these wounds up in salt
You tell me you change with the season
And that’s not your fault
Oh no baby

So call me up in the morning
Tell me you’ll be here tonight
Because your coyness is almost as boring
As life without death but baby not quite

And then stay with me stay with me this evening
An evening of 500 years
Because if we could have all this loving without leaving
Then we could have laughter without the tears

Baby say a prayer for me
If you care for me

Take off the dress you wear for me
Stand bare for me

Because we never had any reason
To cover these wounds up in salt
You tell me you change with the season
And that’s not your fault
Oh no baby
Track Name: I Won't Leave The House
Gets so hard for me
I gotta talk about it
So you understand me

It takes me a long time to say what I mean
But once I say it I won’t forget again
Sooner or later I come across a feeling that I cannot explain
That’s the way that it goes
And the storm clouds descend
And the rain soaks my clothes
That were drying in the sun
But it was futile to begin with
So I can’t blame anyone

And my boots are laying empty on the floor collecting dust
And I won’t leave the house unless I must
I won’t leave the house unless I must

I won’t leave the house unless I must
I won’t leave the house unless I must

There’s wires strewn everywhere
I can’t tell them a part
I plug them in hope for the best
Reluctantly press start
But I get tired trying to sing it all alone
I go to cook a burger
Push away the microphone

And my boots are laying empty on the floor collecting dust
And I won’t leave the house unless I must
I won’t leave the house unless I must

I won’t leave the house unless I must
I won’t leave the house unless I must
Track Name: Pay Out On The Front End
I thought my life had ended by 21
Mama said you know I hate
To see you suffering son
But I’m afraid this time
It’s up to you

She crossed her arms and said:
“Hey boy get out of bed.”
I know it’s late, but you got work to do

You’ve always paid out on the front end
So you’ll be better off later child
From the day you was born
To Your last birthday

And when they cut you with the blunt end
I know it hurts you all the while
But the wounds not deep
And in time it goes away

She told me:
“Son. You know. You could have
left her long ago.
And gone back to school
Where all would have been well.

“But instead you stayed
and all your debts were doubly paid.
And credited to your account in hell.”

You’ve always paid out on the front end
So you’ll be better off later child
From the day you was born
To Your last birthday

And when they cut you with the blunt end
I know it hurts you all the while
But the wounds not deep
And in time it goes away

Well well well
If you torture yourself up until the final hour
When the bad news comes your disappointed anyway
Ain’t no way to prepare yourself for what you don’t know
So it’s best to have faith
Get on your knees and pray

Hey Boy
You’ve always paid out on the front end
So you’ll be better off later child
From the day you was born
To Your last birthday

And when they cut you with the blunt end
I know it hurts you all the while
But the wounds not deep
And in time it goes away

No the wounds not deep
And in time it goes away
Track Name: Treasure
Beneath the mausoleum breaths
The dead and gone the ill-received
They will laugh just as hard as anyone can laugh
As hard as I can laugh

My windows shut the door is locked
The shades are drawn the initial shock
Of loosing you
It’s just as much as anyone can loose
It’s as much as I can loose

And this is this
And this is the pain
That I will suffer
And stare at plain

Oh this is this
And this is the pain
That I will suffer
And I will feel
It is my treasure to conceal
That I will carry until I heal
Oh this is this
And this is the pain

And it’s just like pleasure
When it bares your name

It’s just like pleasure
When it bares your name

It’s just like pleasure when it bares your name
It’s just like pleasure when it bares your name
Track Name: Don't Wanna Go
Said I don’t wanna go go go
Down the road all by myself
No I don’t wanna go go go
Down the road all by my self
(hit me band)

No I don’t wanna go go go
Down the road all by myself
No I don’t wanna go go go
Down the road all by my self

Said I don’t wanna go go go
Down the road all by myself
No I don’t wanna go go go
Down the road all by my self
(let’s go)
Track Name: X-Mas Time
Christmas time arriving with the midnight Baptist tents
Preaching fire and hurricanes you will repent
Me I work the late shift waiting for the switch to turn
Wishing I could forget all of the rules I had to learn

Thinking of myself standing in the new
Millennium in which I’ve only loved a few
Deeply and severely faithful and true
But none of them I’ve loved a much as I love you

Laurie Allen at the station train to Chicago
No more Christmas in Tennessee where it won’t snow
Alternating nights at work with drinking til I’m dumb
And I feel so much smarter when I forget where I’m from

Looking at myself standing in the new
Millennium in which I’ve only loved a few
Deeply and severely faithful and true
But none of them I’ve loved a much as I love you
