    "'Cause Cheap Is How I Feel"

    "'Cause Cheap Is How I Feel"


    It's the kind of night that's so cold, when you spit
    it freezes before it hits the ground
    And when a bum asks you for a quarter, you give a dollar
    if he's out tonight he must be truly down
    And I'm searching all the windows for a last minute present
    to prove to you that what I said was real,
    for something small and frail and plastic, baby,
    'cause cheap is how I feel

    Half moon in the sky tonight, bright enough
    to come up with an answer
    to the question why is it that every time I see you
    my love grows a little stronger
    But your memory leaves my stomach churning,
    feeling like a lie about to be revealed,
    but I'll horde all this to myself
    'cause cheap is how I feel

    It's not the smell in here that gets to me it's the lights
    I hate the shadows that they cast,
    and the sound of clinking bottles is the one sure thing
    I'll always drag with me from my past
    I think I'll find a pair of eyes tonight, to fall into
    and maybe strike a deal
    Your body for my soul, fair swap
    `cause cheap is how I feel

    "(You've Got To Get) A Good Heart"

    "(You've Got To Get) A Good Heart"


    Tell me what brings you closer my dear
    is it the beauty or the fear
    Tell me what keeps your interest here
    is it the chill or is it the fever

    Is it the terror or the grief
    Is it the trigger or the breach

    You’ve got to get a good heart
    You need a good heart

    Take me back to another time
    When the birds brought forth the sun
    Take me back to that golden year
    When the pain brought forth the gun

    You’ve got to get a good heart
    You’ve got to get a good heart

    Is it the beauty or the fear
    Is it the chill or is it the fever

    Take me back to another time
    When the birds brought forth the sun
    Leave it there it’s sad and tired
    It’s time that we moved on

    You need a good heart

    "200 More Miles"

    "200 More Miles"


    Atlanta's a distant memory
    Montgomery a recent birth
    and Tulsa burns on the desert floor
    like a signal fire
    I got Willie on the radio
    a dozen things on my mind
    and number one is fleshing out
    these dreams of mine
    I've got 200 more miles of rain asphalt in line
    before I sleep
    But there'll be no warm sheets or welcoming arms
    to fall into tonight
    In Nashville there is a lighter
    in a case for all to see
    it speaks of dreams and heartaches
    left unsung
    And in the corner stands a guitar and
    lonesome words scrawled in a drunken hand
    I don't travel past, travel hard before
    and I'm beginning to understand
    That I've got 200 more miles of rain asphalt in line
    before I sleep
    But there'll be no warm sheets or welcoming arms
    to fall into tonight
    They say that I am crazy
    my life wasting on this road
    that time will find my dreams
    scared or dead and cold
    But I heard there is a light
    drawing me to reach an end
    and when I reach there, I'll turn back
    and you and I can begin again
    I've got 200 more miles of rain asphalt in line
    before I sleep
    But there'll be no warm sheets or welcoming arms
    to fall into tonight
    I've got 200 more miles of rain asphalt in line
    before I sleep
    But I wouldn't trade all your golden tomorrows
    for one hour of this night
    Atlanta's a distant memory
    Montgomery a recent birth
    and Tulsa burns on the desert floor
    like a signal fire

    "32-20 Blues"

    "32-20 Blues"


    If I send for my baby and he don't come
    If I send for my baby, man, and he don't come
    All the doctors in Hot Springs they sure can't help him none

    And if he gets unruly, things he don't wanna do
    And if he gets unruly and thinks he won't do
    I'll take my 32-20, now, and cut him half in two

    I'm gonna shoot my pistol, I'm gonna shoot my Gatling gun
    Yeah, I'm gonna shoot my pistol, I'm gotta shoot my Gatling gun
    You made me love you, now your man have come

    Baby, where you stay last night?
    Yeah, I said baby, where'd you stayed last night?
    'Cause you got the hair all tangled and you ain't talkin' right
    Where'd you stayed last night?
    ...
    He got a .38 Special but I believe it's most too light
    He got a .38 Special but I believe it's most too light
    I got a 32-20, got to make the camps alright

    If I send for my baby, man, and he don't come
    If I send for my baby, man, and he don't come
    All the doctors in Hot Springs sure can't help her none

    Her .38 Special, boys, do it very well
    Her .38 Special, boys, it do very well
    I got a 32-20 now, and it's a burnin'

    If I send for my baby, man, and he don't come
    If I send for my baby, man, and he don't come
    All the doctors in Wisconsin sure can't help him none

    Hey, hey baby, where'd you stay last night?
    Hey, hey baby, where'd you stay last night?
    You didn't come home until the sun was shining bright

    Ah-oh, boy, I just can't take my rest
    Ah-oh, boy, I just can't take my rest
    With this 32-20 laying up and down my breast

    "3rd Crusade"

    "3rd Crusade"


    King Richard came upon them
    3000 I am told
    Slit their stomachs in search of jewels
    In search of Islams gold.

    On the road from Acre
    They’re crucifying thieves
    Crows are pecking at their eyes
    While the hypocrites run free

    I’ve been told that you’ve been bold
    Believing in the shit that you’ve been sold
    And I hear that you fear the way
    a simple damn dream can disappear

    They marched on through the seasons
    The skies lit by burning hills
    They gobbled up the cities
    To the sound of raging bells

    When they reached the Holy Land
    They gave their thanks to God
    They hammered on the Temple stones
    And crushed the filthy mob.

    I’ve been told that you’ve been bold
    Believing in the shit that you’ve been sold
    And I hear that you fear the way
    a simple damn dream can disappear

    The rich they still get richer
    The poor still spill their blood
    The poppies grow in Kandahar
    And the oil still flows in Saud.

    "A Bride's Price"

    "A Bride's Price"


    I was forced to pay a bride's price
    I couldn't look the other way.
    She hooked me with her “fuck me” eyes,
    they still haunt me to this day.

    She says, “only you can know these secrets
    buried deep beneath my skin, only your tongue
    can uncover them.”

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeaaah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeaaah

    In a room as cold as Winter
    I explored her with my hands.
    She said, “darling you must forgive, in order to understand”.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeaaah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeaaah

    My breathe it slowly left me
    I snaked my way inside.
    The next thing that I knew
    you were not lying by my side.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeaaah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeaaah

    In the end we find a single door
    and all the things we should have done.
    Piled high on all the surfaces,
    fears, excuses given.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeaaah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeaaah

    "A Common Disaster"

    "A Common Disaster"


    A candle burning for everything I've ever wanted
    A tattoo burned for everything I've ever wanted and lost
    I had a long list of names that I kept in my back pocket,
    but I've cut it down to one and your name's at the top
    Won't you share a common disaster?
    Share with me a common disaster
    A common disaster
    I found myself a friend,
    but he's crooked as a stick in water
    So now I'm writing fairy tales
    to catch the spirit of revenge
    He's got a plan to steal my little sister,
    but I'm not too concerned
    'cause I will get him in the end
    Won't you share a common disaster?
    Share with me a common disaster
    A common disaster
    Going to find me someone to share
    A common disaster
    Run away with me from a life so cramped and dull
    Not worry too much about the happily-ever-after
    Just keep the Caddy moving
    'til we're well beyond that hill
    Won't you share a common disaster?
    Share with me a common disaster
    A common disaster

    "A Few Bags Of Grain"

    "A Few Bags Of Grain"


    After twelve years of feeding
    Days spent barely breathing
    I’m worth only a few bags of grain
    Oh the shame, the shame, the shame
    So I’ll take me beating
    Never once complaining
    Oh the shame, oh the shame, the shame
    After sixteen years hard labour
    He bumped into a neighbour
    Who told him about a world gone insane
    He said, “I cannot stress any stronger
    But you cannot rest on your honour”
    The shame, the shame, the shame
    She leaves her there sleeping
    Hoping that she’s dreaming
    About a life worth more than a few bags of grain
    Oh the shame, oh the shame, the shame
    But my spirit will live on
    My daughter you will not claim
    My spirit will live on
    My spirit you can not claim
    My daughter you will not claim
    Can not claim
    You can not claim

    "A Few Simple Words"

    "A Few Simple Words"


    What does he see in those mashed potatoes?
    What secrets does he hold that can be so grin?
    The silence like a canyon dividing them
    He's on one side she's opposite him
    Trying so desperately to get his attention
    She says, "honey, you're a bastard of great proportion".
    He says, "darling, I plead guilty to that sin."
    With potatoes half way to his mouth
    He looks her in the eye and says,
    "without a doubt
    My love for you is all that I believe in.
    "With those few simple words
    Her heart is sent soaring
    She's able to face another day
    . through the anger and the laughter
    She knows that she matters
    And somebody out there cares.
    What does she gain by all this sulking?
    What trouble can there be for one so young?
    Dark tension building like the clouds of a storm
    Her daughter's in her room and she's at the door
    Trying to figure what all this fuss is for.
    She says, "mother, you're a witch
    And I'll always hate you."
    She says, "daughter, perhaps these words
    You speak are true."
    She quietly moves towards the bed,
    Look her in the eye gently says,
    "but I will always believe in you."
    With those few simple words
    Her heart is sent soaring
    She's able to face another day.
    Through the anger and the laughter
    She knows that she matters
    And somebody out there cares.
    What do we need to keep us going?
    What do we need at the end of the day?
    Mysteries keep piling like dirty clothes
    In the corner.
    You never thought you'd give up.
    But you're beginning to wonder
    When through the gloom you hear
    A familiar voice say....
    .... a few simple words
    That send your heart soaring
    You're able to face another day.
    Through the anger and the laughter
    You know that you matter
    And somebody out there cares.
