"'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.
