"Turning Home"


"Turning Home"


Usually take one last pass through town
Stop the car and touch the ground
Watch those streetlights swayin’ in the breeze
Decorated store fronts
Rusty old gas pumps
Try to fill my mind up
With somethin’ before I go
Picture postcard memories
You know they always make for good company

I don’t know no town
Like the old town
Even when the miles are many
I feel like I’m still around
Deep inside me
Like rings through an oak tree
Yeah, there something ‘bout a Sunday when I’m gone
That keeps me turning home

I’m standin’ here beneath these billboard lights
Takes me back to those autumn nights
Hometown bleachers packed real tight
As we marched down the field
My feet would swing from a dropped tailgate
Out on Airport Road real late
No one could walk a line too straight
We usually made it home alright
And glory days I cant re-live
Stories I’ll never forget

And I don’t know no friends
Like the old friends
I never seem to laugh now
Like I did with them
But deep inside me
A piece of history
Yeah, I hear their voices even though they’re gone
And it keeps me turning home

Never twice the same way does it start
And sure enough she stole my heart
On the old gym floor, spinnin’ round and round one night
And though we both tried hard to wait
We sure did love the taste
Of the sweet love being made and prayin’ I got it right
Graduation came and went
Along with all the time we spent

And I don’t know no love
Like the first love
When I think about the best times
She’s the one I think of
Deep inside me
All though the taste is bittersweet
I see her smilin’ even though she’s gone
And it keeps me turning home, yeah
And it keeps me turning home

"Missouri"

"Missouri"


November's almost over, gentle winter's on the way
Still I sit here on this balcony, smoke my brain away

Waiting on that phone to ring
Wondering which day that it will be

Oh Carrie, I pray one day you'll go back home
To the warmth of Southern Georgia where you belong
And leave all the pain you've felt from me here in Missouri

Oh, you were just a young girl and I swore I could change
Everyday that you forgive me, is just another one you'll waste

You came here in search of something true
Looks like, girl, your searching isn't through

Oh Carrie, I pray one day you'll go back home
To the warmth of Southern Georgia where you belong
And leave all the pain you've felt from me here in Missouri

It's hard to think that everything around her
To know that won't be happy ever after

Oh Carrie, I pray one day you'll go back home
To the warmth of Southern Georgia where you belong
Leave all the pain you've felt from me here in Missouri

Oh Carrie, I pray one day you'll go back home
To the warmth of Southern Georgia where you belong
And leave all the pain you've felt from me here in Missouri

Here in Missouri, Missouri, Missouri

"Grandpa's Farm"

"Grandpa's Farm"
It's gonna be a long, hot summer
The heat's gonna come for sure
Making you love me might take longer
But down here everything is slow
Sheets are blowin' on the clothesline
Honeysuckle makes it smell so sweet
The way they feel when ya lay down on 'em
You can't get from no machine

[Chorus:]
I know you come down every season
Waste time on your grandpa's farm
I ain't tryin' to talk you out of leavin'
A little sun won't do no harm

Go ahead and put your summer dress on
The sky's bright and the water's fine
And if you don't feel like swimmin'
We can find a bank and wet a line
'Cause I know up there in the city
Ain't no space to run 'round in
Down here we got dirt streets
Your bare feet can't help but settle down in

[Repeat Chorus]

Grandpa's farm

I'll show you around if you come outside
Ain't no need in hidin' yourself anyhow
I'll show you around if you come outside
Ain't no need in hidin' yourself anyhow
I'll show you around if you come outside
Ain't no need in hidin' yourself anyhow

[Repeat Chorus]

Yeah, I can show you around
Yeah, I can show you around
If you come outside
Ain't no need in hidin' yourself

"Songs For Sale"


"Songs For Sale"


Boiled peanuts anytime, painted on a plywood sign
Pull to the shoulder and buy a sack
An old man with a dirty face swears they're the best you'll taste
Grows 'em fresh in that red dirt field outback, yeah, that's a fact

Grace is a mechanic's wife and their toe-head boys are her whole life
Sews patches on blue jeans night and day
Never does much for herself, doesn't dream of fame or wealth
Just a ballpark bleacher and a place to pray

Some are called to preach the gospel
String fence in Colorado
Some are born to raise a family
Swing a hammer at a nail
Haul bricks or carry mail
Go to college, Duke or Yale, but me,
I got songs for sale

There's not a lot of tread on my tires, in some spots you can see the wires
Just hope they make it to the next town so I can sing
I'm still earning lots of lessons, I'm still calling it a profession
Travelin' 'round strummin' these guitar strings

Some are good at mending houses
Fixing drink and telephones
Some are born to wear pinstripes on their sleeves
Swing a hammer at a nail
Haul bricks or carry mail
Go to college, Duke or Yale, but me,
I got songs for sale

I see it in a lot of places
I read it on a lot of faces

Some are called to preach the gospel
String fence in Colorado
Some are born to raise a family
Swing a hammer at a nail
Haul bricks or carry mail
Go to college, Duke or Yale, and me,
Yeah me, I got songs for sale
Yeah, I got songs for sale

"Desiree"

"Desiree"



It's killin' me to write the word "goodbye"
I've wadded it up and tossed it a thousand times
We both know the reason
There ain't nothin' to explain
But I know that my leavin'
Will spare us both the pain

[Chorus:]
(Desiree), I can't hold you any longer
(Desiree), You love his money more than me
Now the taxi's at the gate
I guess all that's left to say
Is in teardrops at the bottom of the page
"I love you Desiree"

It'd be easier to leave if I were mad
But it's hard to lose the best you'll ever have
And to write this note to you
Was the hardest thing to do
But not as hard as bein' a poor boy
Who can't afford a girl like you

[Repeat Chorus Twice]

God, I love you, Desiree
I just can't take it anymore
(I won't be around for your goodbye)
(I won't be around for your goodbye)
Love his money more than me
(I won't be around for your goodbye)
Love his money more than me
(I won't be around for your goodbye)
Oh, you love his money and you love it more than me
(I won't be around for your goodbye)

Yeah, I was just a fool who couldn't see
(I won't be around for your goodbye)
Yeah, you love his money and you love it more than me

"She Rides Away"

"She Rides Away"
Sunset on the chapel, when I close my eyes I see her and she's prayin'
Ripples in the holy water, kneelin' in the light that is fadin'
Askin' for forgiveness cause she knows that it is me that she is breakin'
Angel flyin' with my heart

She rides on the edge of no tomorrow in a rusty El Camino
She flies as wild as the wind on the border of Laredo
She rides away
Questions in the dark
She rides away
Angel flyin' with my heart

Mystery surrounds her, she's the moonlight in the daylight, ain't no answer
Blacktop on the sand while the desert just goes on and on forever
she told me when I met her she would leave like it was written in red letters
Angel flyin' with my heart

She rides on the edge of no tomorrow in a rusty El Camino
She flies as wild as the wind on the border of Laredo
She rides away
Questions in the dark
She rides away
Angel flyin' with my heart

Sunset on a chapel, when I close my eyes I see her and she's prayin'
Askin' for forgiveness cause she knows that it is me that she is breakin'

She rides on the edge of no tomorrow in a rusty El Camino
She flies as wild as the wind on the border of Laredo
She rides away
Questions in the dark
She rides away
Angel flyin' with my heart
Angel flyin' with my heart

"Let It Rain"

"Let It Rain"



It’s hard to find the perfect time to say something
You know, is gonna change everything
Living with the shame,
It ain’t nothing like the pain that I saw on her face
Now me and my pile of things
That she threw out the window,
Drowning next to me
No seven years of good cant hide the one night I forgot to wear that ring

So let it rain, let it pour, if she don’t love me anymore,
Just let it come down on me, let it come down on me,
Every word, let it hurt, even more than I deserve,
Let it come down on me, let it come down on me, let it rain

The last thing I remember was the unfamiliar taste of someone on my lips,
It’s too late to turn around,
When the shades start coming down,
The guilt you feel's the last thing on your mind

So let it rain, let it pour, if she don’t love me anymore,
Just let it come down on me, let it come down on me,
Every word, let it hurt, even more than I deserve,
Just let it come down on me, let it come down on me, let it rain
So let it rain, let it pour, if she don’t love me anymore,
Just let it come down on me, let it come down on me,
Every word, let it hurt, even more than I deserve, just let it come down on me,
Let it come down on me, let it rain,
Ooh let it rain, ooh let it rain, just let it rain, just let it rain, ooh let it rain

"I Thought You Knew"

"I Thought You Knew"I'll follow you like a bridge to the end of the world
I take you with me everywhere I go
But you ran from love like a bullet from a gun
Lead powder burned my heart deep as this desert sun
You never told me it was over
You never told me anything at all

Now I'm out on the road and I'm asking myself why
I never told you that my love was true
Well, I thought you knew
Yeah, I thought you knew

Heard it from the motel man, you were here two nights ago
That means I'm closing in on my last chance to let you know
That I'm sorry girl for the things I guess I didn't say
But I'll keep searching for you 'til my dying day

Now I'm out in the road and I'm asking myself why
I never told you that my love was true
Well, I thought you knew

I thought you knew I meant forever
Even though I never said the things I needed to
But I'm out on the road and asking myself why

I'm out on the road and asking myself why
I never told you that my love was true
But I thought you knew, yeah, I thought you knew
Girl, I thought you knew, yeah, I thought you knew

As the sunlight fades and the sky turns black from blue
I know one of those sets of taillights just might be you

"Catch You While I Can"


"Catch You While I Can"
When rooms are crowded eyes will wander
Never knowing what they'll find
I came in waiting on another
Now you're all that's on my mind

Beneath a chorus of conversation
What no one else can see
Is a gamble between two strangers
That's taken a hold of me

So, let go of your halo
Break free for a while
Tell me that you're ready
And into the night
Wrong or right
Before it slips right through our hands
Let me catch you while I can

My courage rises, I walk over
Your curled smile calms me down
Words come easy, I keep you laughing
I should stop but I don't know how

So, let go of your halo
Break free for a while
Tell me that you're ready
And into the night
Wrong or right
Before it slips right through our hands
Let me catch you while I can

When midnight turns into daylight, maybe we'll both move on
But who knows, maybe tomorrow, lonely will be long gone
Be long gone

Come on, let go of your halo
Break free for a while
Tell me that you're ready
And into the night
Wrong or right
Before it slips right through our hands
Let me catch you while I can
Let me catch you while I can

"Half Mile Hill"

"Half Mile Hill"Half Mile Hill, eight years old
Standing on top with the world below
Me and my dad
Talking man to man
Suitcase packed, he was moving out
Said, It's no one's fault, but I had my doubts
And I have them still
Up on Half Mile Hill

[Chorus:]
You can see the ball fields
Watch the cars go 'round the courthouse
See the sun go down
Where the street lamps glow
On those checkerboard roads
Wishing I could fly like a cut-string kite
Tapping on the floor of heaven
Is anybody listening?

Half Mile Hill, seventeen
Tailing the summer, Angie and me
Kicking beer cans off the side
One last time
She was wildcat tough, I was scarecrow thin
We were thick as theives 'til the bitter end
Trying to make time stand still
Up on Half Mile Hill

[Repeat Chorus]

Hey all, you lovers and leavers
Stuck in-betweeners
Loners and stoners
Old drunks and dreamers
Rumbling and stumbling
Always looking for something
Past that no trespassing sign

You can see the ball fields
Watch the cars go 'round the courthouse
See the sun go down
Where the Street lamps glow
On those checkerboard roads
Wishing I could fly like a cut-string kite
Tapping on the floor of heaven
Tapping on the floor of heaven

Is anybody listening?
(Is anybody listening?)
Up on Half Mile Hill
Is anybody listening?
(Is anybody listening?)
