She Moves 01:46
I like the way she walks. I like the way she talks. I like the way she moves when she moves like she does. I like her long black hair. I like her sunset stares. I like the way she moves when she moves like she does. I like that no one really knows her. I like the way the wind it blows her. I like the way she moves when she moves like she does. I wish I’de never ever seen you. I know I never could of dreamed you. But when she moves, ahh she moves, when she moves, she moves like she does…

Is there someone else you could call? I can’t take this when you’re falling. You call me on the phone. To tell me you’re alone. Should I still care? Girl you left me alone out there. Now we’re nowhere. Too tired now to try. Too tired now to cry. But I still cry… I remember when we met. You were lovely soaking wet. Under Western skies. You’re probably there tonight. Breaking someone new. Tearing them in two. But you don’t have the heart. To never let it start. Oh I wish I’d never seen you Too tired now to try. Too tired now to cry. But I still cry… And girl the deepest cut of all. Is you don’t know how hard we fall. For your certain kind of light. You’re probably there tonight. Breaking someone new. Tearing them in two. You just smile and play. Like it’s any other day. Of I wish I’d never seen you. Too tired now to try. Too tired now to cry. But I still cry…

Unrequited love is so cruel. I’m still here waiting. A hard headed fool. There’s really nothing left to do. The heart you don’t I've given to you. Release me. From the memories. Heaven help me. She don’t see me. I was ready to burn my life down. Had you wanted me around. When we said our last goodbye. Never thought a man should cry. Now I’m fading. Washed in tears. Losing you to your better years. Release me. From the memories. Heaven help me. She don’t want me. Unrequited love is so cruel…

So Lovely 03:28
One of these days I’m gonna track you down. When maybe we’re older and a little round. All these years later I still hear your sounds. Hear your sounds. And you’re so lovely. You’re so lovely… My calls always end before they really start. You pretty kryptonite to my heart. Say hello once a year then fall apart. Fall apart. And you’re so lovely. You’re so lovely… Maybe you’ll love me when we're old and alone. When all of your prettier options are gone. You never knew that you were always home. Always home. And you’re so lovely. You’re so lovely…

Elliot 02:01
Oh Elliot, are you resting now? Were the light too bright? Did it hurt your eyes? Did they promise you? More than they would ever do? Did they feed your doubt? Then turn you out? And now it’s quiet time I’m sorry that the smoke got in your eyes Oh Elliot, what did she do to you? Did she take your heart? Play the baby card? Did she promise you? More than she could ever do? Did she feed your doubt? And then turn you out? Now it’s quiet time I’m sorry that the smoke got in your eyes…

Authentic 02:12
Yeah this ain’t no folk show. And it ain’t no disco. It’s just another dig at authentic. Just another dig. So come on get happy. Don’t waste your time. On the disappointments that’ll beat you every time. And bleed you ‘til you’re dry. Yeah, I’m not cool enough. Hip enough. Tattooed enough. Indie enough for you… And I see your faces. In your phones all day. You come right up to me. Not a single word to say. Little girl, you’re afraid to play. Yeah I’m not young enough. Rich enough. Hip enough. Vinyl enough for you… Yeah this ain’t no disco. And it ain’t no folk show. It’s just another dig at authentic. Just another dig. So come on get happy. Don’t wait in line. With the fashion victims that’ll take up all your time. And bleed you ‘til you’re dry…

That Girl 04:01
Say you don’t love me anymore Say you don’t love me anymore Swear I’ll believe it when you walk out the door Say you don’t love me anymore Where’s your sisters now? Where’s your poppa now? You burned all his ranches and stole my name So where’s your family now? Momma she’s rollin’ in her grave Momma she’s rollin’ in her grave Remember that young girl, with the frilly white dresses? That girl don’t live here anymore That girl don’t live here anymore

Compromise 03:18
Tell me darling Do you really love me? Or is this compromise? I know you said that you’d be home this evening I’ve heard the alibi Late at night when we’re staring at the ceiling With nothing new to say Another summer, it’s gonna be a long one It just won’t fade away I never see you in the morning I never see late at night So most the time I just go right out of my mind on sight Tell me darling Is it just your body that keeps you satisfied? And will you be there to kiss me in the morning if I make 55? Give me something that I can hold on to, you’re leaning out of sight Another summer, it’s gonna be a long one I see it in your eyes I never see you in the morning I never see late at night So most the time I just go right out of my mind on sight Tell me darling Do you really love me? Or is this compromise? I know you say that you just can’t live without me I’ve heard the alibi Late at night when we’re staring at the ceiling With nothing new to say Another summer, it’s gonna be a long one It just won’t fade away Just won’t fade away

Can I help it if your skin don’t fit you right? Can I help it if you’re frozen inside? Can I help it if you’re never gonna be Like the ones always outside smiling, like they’re on TV? Can I help it if you Dad don’t treat you right? Can I help it if he stays out all night? Can I help it if you’re never gonna see All those places you go off to when you’re dreaming? I watch you stumble, then I watch you fall You come up screaming, that I don’t care at all But you never ask me to leave No, you’re rather have me around like some fly on the wall So can I help it if your skin don’t fit you right? Can I help it if you’re frozen inside? Can I help it if you’re never gonna be Like the ones always outside smiling. Like they’re on TV? Can I help it if your Mom don’t treat you right? Can I help it if she don’t tuck you in at night? Can I help it if you’re never gonna see All those places you go off to when you’re dreaming?

Stumble right into the beat Leave us there shuffling our feet Staring down at the floor You got no claim at all None that you’d recall Drown in alcohol Move it over To some other part of the mind I’ll try.. Livin' on the outside in It’s a helluva place begin Leaning hard on new friends But you got no claim at all Not that you’d recall Drown in alcohol It’s all over And you can’t hold her anymore Where’s the door? So stumble right into the street Scrape those bended knees Tell me I’m a tease You got no claim at all None that you’d recall Drown in alcohol

Hayseed Girl 02:11
Hayseed girl, a country queen of the likes you’ve never seen Hayseed girl, kissin’ cousins, you gotta love ‘em She’ll tear your heart to pieces, and leave you crying on the ground She’ll take you down, to the river, and lay you down on sheets of linen You won’t shower, and she won’t care, she lets the ribbons fall down from her hair Then tears your heart to pieces, and leaves you crying on the ground Hayseed girl, a country queen of the likes you’ve never seen Hayseed girl, kissin’ cousins, you gotta love ‘em She’ll tear your heart to pieces, and leave you crying on the ground

She’s Daddy’s little princess, she ain’t got no fear at all Ain’t no trouble she can’t handle with a credit card call But she don’t even know it, ‘cause she ain’t from the dirt Most folks only notice that little yellow skirt Well I’ll see her when she’s dancing, she’ll come gliding across the room Sidles up beside me, smelling of perfume She says she lost her ride and could I take her somewhere Invites me inside, but I can’t go there It ain’t no good at home, so go on out and get it You’re out most every night now, come on just admit it She’s sittin’ there like fruit that’s been ripened on the vine And she’s watchin’ you get weaker almost every single time Thinking you might have something she could really need Something more than sensual that she ain’t ever seen So when she comes a callin’, you best get right down those stairs Come on off of that high horse, don’t tell me you can’t go there What about those promises I made when I was young I don’t aspire to do the things that my Daddy might have done And is that the attraction, do I remind you of your pa? And you just gotta see those things your momma might of saw I’ll see you when you shimmy, when you come sliding across the room And throw your arms around me a little bit too soon Thinking that tonight I might take you off somewhere Invite me deep inside but I can’t go there Hell’s not just for sinners, no it’s right here for those saints Who can walk around avoiding all those lives that they could taint And don’t think I’m not humbled that you’d want a man like me But I’m still working on the sins of a youth that follows me I’ll see you on the dance floor when that look comes to your eye You’re the type of appetite I could never satisfy So you can keep on calling, though it won’t go anywhere I know that you’ll beckon me, but I can’t go there
14.
Not in Iowa 04:16
I left my country home, left the fields and plains To feel the desert wind, and escape the rain But she saw me coming from a thousand miles away She took my hand and asked my name She led me to her house and fed me Spanish wine Up ‘till then I’d of swore I was doing fine But she said you never smile and it’s starting to creep me out I should have listened to my doubt So take that gun and make me swallow And I’ll be smiling forevermore My head is spinning and my eyes can’t find the door I’m not in Iowa anymore I miss my country home, I miss the corn and beans This sand it’s in my lungs, I could really use some rain She turned the lights down and crept up close to me So I would feel what I could not see Just take that gun and make me swallow And I’ll be smiling forevermore My hands are tied now and my feet won’t touch the floor I’m not in Iowa anymore Not in Iowa anymore
15.
Wild Love 02:34
Ain’t nothin' special about it Go on and shout it when you walk in the room Don’t need to worry ‘bout your mama No your papa he won’t be home soon Now the room is spinning You’re beginning to see the night turn to day The sweat it runs together Yeah he’s thinking you might give it away. Ain’t nothing to it so girl just do it now… You think you’re something special God’s gift when your hips start to sway You feel him sliding over A spinning collection on promises made Ain’t nothin to it so girl just do it now… All right Okay Tonight Don’t wait Wild love Wild love Wild love Wild love…..
16.
I Adore 02:10
You are the one that I adore You are the one I came here for You are the one that keeps me thinking You are the reason I’m here drinking You pull me down into the shade You call me out on my charade Guess all my roots are ill-begotten Drunken cowboys are soon forgotten Sit down, shut up, don’t waste your time Hold on. you’re so gone, throw me a line You are the one that I adore You are the one I came here for You are… You are… You are the one
17.
Tell me you’re the one that’ll always drive me crazy Tell me you’re the one that still wants to have my baby Tell me you’re the one that never has to fake it When you say that it’s allright I could not make it Tell me I could stop this any time I want to Tell me I got heart, enough to drive a truck through Tell me I can go on sleeping if I need to Tell me I could hang it up and just come on home to you, to you I just can’t smile anymore Tell me I could walk away from these hot lights Tell me I could leave that neon late night Tell me I should do whatever I want to Dig a ditch, hell you don’t care As long as I come home to you, to you I just can’t smile anymore Tell me I’m the one that never leaves you lonely Tell I’m the one, that one true one and only Tell me it’s allright that I don’t shed tears to cry Tell me I’m the one that’ll always make you happy Tell me I’m the one that always leaves you laughing Tell me I’m the one you’re dreaming of late at night Straight out of our minds, straight out of our minds Tell me you’re the one that’ll always drive me crazy Tell me you’re the one that still want’s to have my baby Tell me I’m the one you’re dremaing of late at night
18.
My baby's got a brand new bag You notice when she starts to drag She loves me, but she hates me too She says that I’m a lot like you. A lot like you… Hey.. Do you want me? Do you miss me? Would you kiss me? Are we lovers like no others? Or just playing under covers? When you touch me I go crazy. When you’re sleeping you look amazing. Are you coming back tomorrow? For your love I’d beg, steal or borrow. My baby's got a brand new bag You notice when she starts to drag She loves me, but she hates me too She says that I’m a lot like you. A lot like you…

Come on Annie, I’ve been thinking We should find some time I don’t know but I would say It’s not a waste of time That’s what gets me, that’s what gets me That’s what gets me down to Two Bells Road Come on Johnny, meet me halfway Down to Mehaffey Bridge We’ll go jumpin’ and we’ll go swimming I’ve got lots to give I won’t deny I want to see you in the sun Come on sister, I won’t see you When you’re lying there I don’t think so But I won’t say no I don’t really care I see it coming out tonight The sun goes down So come on Annie, meet me halfway down to Mehaffey Bridge We’ll go jumping and we’ll go swimming I’ve got lots to give I won’t deny I want to see you in the sun…

Another weekend staying out all night We’re in the kitchen and what an awful fight I don’t know why I keep on doing what you say Momma says it’s just the dues I’m gonna pay for two Crazy girl like you You take me dancing then you leave me on the floor Spend all my money as you walk right out the door You got my cigarettes and all my credit cards You think it’s funny when I wake up in the yard…you do Crazy girl like you Another weekend and you throw up on my lawn I look to you but you’re gone…gone gone gone away So go on leave me now just walk right out the door It’s nothing new to me I’ve seen it all before Take my pickup truck Lord take my trailer too Poppa says it’s just the dues I’m gonna pay for two Crazy girl like you Another weekend and you throw up on my lawn I look to you but you’re gone…gone gone gone away
21.
So lookey lookey yonder Lookey lookey here You used to call me your good friend Now you call me dear With that lipstick stain Up and down my cheek Your hair undone Lord I go weak Lookey Lookey yonder Lookey lookey here I know that you don’t love me So lets be clear When you call my name Our sweat don’t lie Your dress undone Under Midwest skies Lookey Lookey yonder Lookey lookey here You used to call me your good friend Some day you’ll call me dear

Forgotten 03:12
Picking through the pieces of your ever changing mind You’re not worried about tomorrow Or the ones you left behind In case you’ve forgotten…that was me I know I didn’t show you all my loving like I should Tried to keep you as warm and safe and happy as I could So in case you’ve forgotten… It seems that you’ve forgotten… I’m sorry you’ve forgotten me So go ahead and run away Go ahead and try to find something new There ain’t no one out there girl That's ever gonna love you like I do Do you think you’ll find somebody Who could be a better Daddy than me?? Girl don’t you remember all those plans made over tea? In case you’ve forgotten…that was me. And I know we were young girl I know we didn’t know just what to do But do you ever wonder? Did you really think this whole thing through? So in case you’ve forgotten… It seems that you’ve forgotten… I’m sorry you’ve forgotten me
23.
I know you can’t love me I still wish you could I know you won’t call me But I was hoping that you would I don’t know your questions I won’t judge your sins Your answer is always $ Has it always been? Wheres the love, where’s the love? Where’s your Love? Where’s the love? Momma she told me I’d meet one like you Who’d break me to pieces and leave me Without any glue So show me the novel that you’ll never write I’ll show you the poet I’m sleeping with tonight Wheres the love, where’s the love? Where’s your Love? Where’s the love? I know you can’t love me I still wish you could I know you won’t call me But I was praying that you would.
24.
Where I come from we don’t walk too proud We don’t talk too loud…when we talk at all Where I come from we keep one eye on the sky And the local weatherman always seems to make us cry For the corn, and the weed, and the beans Where I come from folks don’t tend to stick around There ain’t too much going on In this sleepy little town Where I come from we’re up dawn ‘til dusk In the cold and the rain with the snow and the dust For the corn, and the weed, and the beans Don’t tell us how to be and don’t tread on me Where I come from folks they always say hi When they shake your hand They look you in the eye Where I come from we don’t lock our doors We have more than enough And we don’t need anymore From the corn, and the weed, and the beans From the corn, and the weed, and the beans..
