"Save It For Sunday"

"Save It For Sunday"



She loves me, she loves me not.
I don't bring it up 'cause she's all I've got.
I don't ever ask why she's around.
I just reach for the stars with my feet on the ground.
My feet on the ground.

A dog-eared page, a book I've read
So many times it's all there in my head.
I watch every word reflect in her eyeglasses.
I know when she'll laugh and I know when she'll cry.
I know when she'll cry.

Save it for Sunday.
Save it for the choir and everyone.
Save it for Sunday
We got cares of our own.

On this side of town, you can't walk alone
A girl like yourself probably wind up gone.
There's talk about work. Gonna open a bar.
With 85 bouncers and one lonely star. One lonely star.

Save it for Sunday.
Save it for the choir and everyone.
Save it for Sunday
We got cares of our own.

"Tour Of Duty"


"Tour Of Duty"

I'm arriving on the day's last train.
Stepping on the platform, trying to see you through the rain.
I don't know the ways you've changed since I left,
And I really don't care.
I've done my tour of duty now I'm home and I ain't going anywhere.

I taught myself to tolerate the pain,
All the loneliness and boredom and the work I did in vain.
All the work we did in vain. Now I'm not the same as I was.
I've done my tour of duty now I'll try to do what a civilian does.

I promise not to bore you with my stories.
I promise not to scare you with my tears.
I never would exaggerate the glory.
I'll seem so satisfied here.

I've been eating like I'm out on bail.
Collard greens and chicken wings and oysters by the pail.
Eating oysters by the pail, making up for those lost days.
I've done my tour of duty now I'm going to put you in the family way.

We'll laugh like little children telling secrets.
Probably cry like old women drinking gin,
Because I've done my tour of duty now I'm home
And I ain't leaving here again.

I've done my tour of duty now I'm home and I ain't leaving here again.

"Cover Me Up"

"Cover Me Up"


A heart on the run
Keeps a hand on a gun
It can't trust anyone

I was so sure
What I needed was more
Tried to shoot out the sun

In days when we raged
We flew off the page
Such damage was done

But I made it through
'Cause somebody knew
I was meant for someone

So girl leave your boots by the bed/we ain't leavin' this room
Til someone needs medical help or the magnolias bloom
It's cold in this house and I ain't goin' out to chop wood
So cover me up and know you're enough to use me for good

Put your faith to the test
When I tore off your dress
In Richmond all high

I sobered up
And I swore that stuff
Forever this time

In the old lover's scene
I thought it'd be me
Who helped him get home

But home was dream
One that I'd never seen
Til you came along

So girl hang your dress up to dry/we ain't leavin' this room
Til Percy Priest breaks open wide and the river runs through
Carries this house on the stones like a piece of drift wood

Cover me up and know you're enough to use me for good

So girl leave your boots by the bed/we ain't leavin' this room
Til someone needs medical help or the magnolias bloom
It's cold in this house and I ain't goin' out to chop wood

So cover me up and know you're enough to use me for good
Cover me up and know you're enough to use me for good

"Stockholm"

"Stockholm"


I've heard love songs make a Georgia man cry
on the shoulder of somebody's Saturday night
Read the good book, studied it too
but nothing prepared me for living with you

Lock me up tight in these shackles I wear
tied up the keys in the folds of your hair
And the difference with me is I used to not care
Stockholm let me go home

Once a wise man to the ways of the world
now I've traded those lessons for faith in a girl
Crossed the ocean, thousand years from my home
in this frozen old city of silver and stone

Ships in the harbor and birds on the bluff
don't move an inch when their anchor goes up
And the difference with me is I've fallen in love
Stockholm let me go home
Let me go

And the night, so long, I used to pray for the daylight to come
Folks back home surely have called off the search and gone back to their own

Ships in the harbor and birds on the bluff
don't move an inch when their anchor goes up
And the difference with me is I've fallen in love
Stockholm let me go home
Let me go
Let me go home

"Traveling Alone"


"Traveling Alone"

Mountains rough this time of year
Close the highway down
They don't warn the town

And I've been fighting second gear
For fifteen miles or so
Trying to beat the angry snow

And I know every town worth passing through
But what good does knowing do
With no one to show it to

And I've grown tired of traveling alone
Tired of traveling alone
I've grown tired of traveling alone
Won't you ride with me?

I've grown tired of traveling alone
Tired of traveling alone
I've grown tired of traveling alone
Won't you ride with me?

Won't you ride?
Won't you ride?

I quit talking to myself
Listening to the radio
Long, long time ago
Damn near strangled by my appetite
Ybor City on a Friday night
Couldn't even stand up right

So high the street girls wouldn't take my pay
They said come see me on a better day
She just danced away

And I've grown tired of traveling alone
Tired of traveling alone
I've grown tired of traveling alone
Won't you ride with me?

I've grown tired of traveling alone
Tired of traveling alone
I've grown tired of traveling alone
Won't you ride with me?

Won't you ride?
Won't you ride?

Paintin the outside lane I'm tired of answerin to myself
Hard like the rebuilt part I don't know how much it's got left
How much it's got left

I've grown tired of traveling alone
Tired of traveling alone
I've grown tired of traveling alone
Won't you ride with me?

I've grown tired of traveling alone
Tired of traveling alone
I've grown tired of traveling alone
Won't you ride with me?

Won't you ride?
Won't you ride?

"Elephant"

"Elephant"


She said Andy you're better than your past,
winked at me and drained her glass,
cross-legged on the barstool, like nobody sits anymore.
She said Andy you're taking me home,
but I knew she planned to sleep alone.
I'd carry her to bed and sweep up the hair from the floor

If I hadd fucked her before she got sick
I'd never hear the end of it
she don't have the spirit for that now

We drink these drinks and laugh out loud,
bitch about the weekend crowd,
and try to ignore the elephant somehow
somehow

She said Andy you crack me up,
Seagrams in a coffee cup,
sharecropper eyes and her hair almost all gone.
When she was drunk she made cancer jokes,
she made up her own doctor's notes,
surrounded by her family, I saw that she was dying alone.

I'd sing her classic country songs
and she'd get high and sing along.
She don't have much voice to sing with now

We'd burn these joints in effegy,
cry about what we used to be,
and try to ignore the elephant somehow.
Somehow

I buried her a thousand times,
giving up my place in line,
but I don't give a damn about that now

There's one thing that's real clear to me,
no one dies with dignity.
We just try to ignore the elephant somehow.
We just try to ignore the elephant somehow.
We just try to ignore the elephant somehow.
Somehow.
Somehow.

"Flying Over Water"

"Flying Over Water"


From the sky we look so organized and brave
Walls that make up barricades and graves
Daddy's little empire built by hands and built by slaves
From the sky we look so organized and brave

In the heat I saw you rising from the dirt
Drunken tears and tugging at your skirt
If only you could tell me then what part of you got hurt
In the heat I saw you rising from the dirt

Take my hand, baby we're over land
I know flying over water makes you cry
Where's that liquor cart?
Maybe we shouldn't start
But I can't for the life of me say why

From the sky the highway's straight as it could be
A string pulled tight from home to Tennessee
And still somehow those ditches took a better part of me
From the sky the highway's straight as it could be

Take my hand, baby we're over land
I know flying over water makes you cry
Been in the sky so long
Feels like a long way home
But I can't for the life of me say why

Do we leave our love behind?
Would we leave our love behind?
Did we leave our love behind?
Would we leave our love behind?

Take my hand, baby we're over land
I know flying over water makes you cry
Been in the sky so long
Seems like the long way home
But I can't for the life of me say why

Did we leave our love behind?
Did we leave our love behind?

"Different Days"


"Different Days"


Staring at the picture of the runaways on the wall
Seems like these day you couldn’t run away at all
And even if you did, what you got to run away to
Just another drunk daddy with a white man’s point of view

I can see you in my mind’s eye catching light
Sleep beside the river if we make it out of town tonight
You’ve been stripping Portland since the day you turned 16
You got one thing to sell benzodiazepine

Ten years ago I might have seen you dancing in a different light
And offered up my help in different way
But those were different days
Those were different days

Had a girl back home and we shared as single bed
When I whispered in her ear she believed every word I said
And if she didn’t believe she didn’t dare give me slack
Or It was “baby I love you, get off of my God damn back”

Time went by and I left and I left again
Jesus loves a sinner but the highway love a sin
My daddy told me I believe he told me true
That the right things always the hardest thing to do

Ten years ago I might stuck around for another night
And user her in a thousand different ways
But those were different days
Those were different days

And the stories only mine to live and die with
And the answers only mine to come across
But the ghost that I got scared and I got high with
Look a little lost

Ten years ago I might thought I didn’t have the right
To say the things an outlaw wouldn’t say
But those were different days
Those were different days
Those were different days

"Live Oak"


"Live Oak"

There's a man who walks beside me
It is who I used to be
And I wonder if she sees him
and confuses him with me
And I wonder who she's pinin' for
on nights I'm not around
Could it be the man who did the things
I'm living now?
I was rougher than a timber
shippin' out of Fond du Lac
When I headed south at 17
ol' sheriff on my back
I never held a lover in my arms or in my gaze
So I found another victim every couple days
But the night I fell in love with her
I made my weakness known
Through the fires and the farmers diggin' dusty fields alone
The jealous innuendos of the lonely hearted men
Let me know what kind of country I was sleeping in
Well you couldn't stay a loner
on the plains before the war
My neighbors had been slightin' me
I had to ask what for
Rumors of my wickedness had reached our little town
Soon she'd heard about the boys I used to hang around
We'd robbed a Great Lakes freighter,
killed a couple men or more
And I told her her eyes flickered like the sharp steel of a sword
All the things that she'd suspected
I'd expected her to fear
Was the truth that drew her to me when I landed here
There's a man who walks beside me
he is who I used to be
And I wonder if she sees him and confuses him with me
And I wonder who she's pinin' for
on nights I'm not around
Could it be the man who did the things
I'm living down?
Well I carved a cross from live oak
and a box from shortleaf pine
Buried her so deep
she touched the water table line
I picked up what I needed
and I headed south again
To myself I wondered
would I find another friend
There's a man who walks beside her,
it is who I used to be
And I wonder if she sees him and confuses him with me.

"Songs That She Sang In The Shower"

"Songs That She Sang In The Shower"


On a lark
On the whim
I said there’s two kinds of men in this world and you’re neither of them

And his fist
Cut the smoke
I had an eighth of a second to wonder if he got the joke

And in the car
Headed home
She asked if I had considered the prospect of living alone

With a stake
Held to my eye
I had to summon the confidence needed to hear her goodbye
And another brief chapter without any answers blew by

And the songs that she sang in the shower
Are stuck in my head
Like Bring Out The Dead
Breakfast In Bed

And experience robs me of hope
That she’ll make it back home
So I’m stuck on my own
I’m stuck on my own

In a room
By myself
Looks like I’m here with a guy that I judge worse than anyone else

So I pace
And I pray
And I repeat the mantra’s that might keep me clean for the day

And the songs that she sang in the shower all ring in my ear
Like Wish You Were Here
How I wish you were here.

And experience robs me of hope
That you’ll ever return
So I breathe and I burn
I breathe and I burn

And the church bells are ringing for those who are easy to please
And the frost on the ground probably envy’s the frost on the trees

And the songs she sang in the shower are stuck in my mind
Like Yesterday’s Wine, like Yesterday’s Wine

And experience tells me that I’ll never hear them again
Not thinking of them
Not thinking of them
