Damn Good Start How to ease a cowboy’s heart An empty bottle is a damn good start A damn good start How to ease a wanting heart Walk out the door is a damn good start A damn good start When nothing good comes around And all the uppers leave you down When getting by never gets you through What’s left to do? How to ease a gambler’s heart Let him win is a damn good start A damn good start How to cure a cautious heart Give it all for nothing is a damn good start A damn good start When nothing good comes around And all the uppers leave you down When getting by never gets you through What’s left to do? I was born a gambling man I was born a cowboy too I laid it all down for love And then walked away too soon

You flew in from chile in a dress.  Gave me lucky cigarettes with filters on. I told you, we'll be lucky when we're dead.  And I'm lucky to be sharing time you.  When I met you, you had secretary hair.   Grace, a smile fair, I was in love.  I told you, what we did I did not care.  As long as the others did not know.  Give me luck  Give me grace Show me love Before it's too late You sat down topless, full of greed. Said the aces up your sleeve would get me through.  I told you, I have nothing to believe And I'm putting all my faith in you Give me luck  Give me grace Show me love Before it's too late I am a wandering child.  Waiting for love to drive me wild.  I gave up all I know.  For the lady, in the dress, with the smokes.

There's a state in the west Put's my love to the test For other places I've lived But the rent there's too high And the air's much to dry These are the reasons I give But on the day I move home When I'm with my roaming When I shake off this prodigal's curse I'll call my mom 'cause she frets when I'm gone But there's someone I need to see first Barbara in California I would lift mountains just so I could see you You know that it's true Like I told Carol Ruth Those cascades just don't wanna move The heart in my chest  Still lives in the west One day I'll claim what's mine But for now I'm content With the time I am spending I like it here just fine Barbara in California I would lift mountains just so I could see you You know that it's true Like I told Carol Ruth Those cascades just don't wanna move

She’s mixing business And pleasure And sleeping around I think it’s about time That I left this town Now Jack of Diamonds He left here A long time ago I can’t remember Which way he did go Tell me where do the dogies go And where can I sleep where she don’t come home I’ll smoke a cigarette In the starlight And I won’t feel alone ‘cause I’ve got my dogies And no place to call home Tell me where do the dogies go And where can I sleep where she don’t come home She’s mixing business And pleasure And sleeping around I think it’s about time That I left this town

My home is full of music My heart is full of friends How is that I am feeling down again? There’s cider on the stovetop And a record spinning thin How is it that I am feeling down again? Saturday slow Sunday lazy They say I look fine Why do I feel crazy? I once spoke rare and truthful I looked love in the eyes How is it that my mouth is full of lies? There’s a bible on the dresser Next door a baby cries How is it that my mouth is full of lies? Saturday slow Sunday lazy They say I look fine Why do I feel crazy?

Sane in Colorado Building walls to save a home It’s nothing that I asked for It’s all I should have known Oh my God What should I do? She’s not here Did she care for the kids? You can’t hold your whiskey Now I can’t hold my girl It’s nothing that I’d choose I’ve given her my world Oh my God Is this my fault? Oh my God What could I have done? What is this here I have seen with my eyes and heard with my ears? I can’t believe that this happened to me Oh, how can this be? I can not stand with my head in my heart and my heart in my hands. I can’t believe that this happened to me Oh, how can this be? Sane in Colorado Learning I have no control It’s nothing I expected But I’ll make it on my own Oh my God Tell me you have a plan She’s not here You let her grow cold Sane in Colorado

Sarah roll down my window I can't do this on my own Let the big sky in Let us sing again Sarah roll down my window I've been driving since I don't know when I couldn't tell you where I've been I haven't seen you in over a year Let's forgot our troubles, let's forget all our fears

Sleep Elena 01:36
Sleep Elena, please don’t cry Now’s the time to close your eyes That shine like diamonds in the sky Dream Elena, the sweetest dreams Take this whole world and make it sing The songs inside your head Sweet Elena, I hold you now You’re growing older I don’t know how I’ll ever let you go. Sleep Elena Sleep Elena Sleep Elena
