Intro 02:00
If I could read your lips Maybe I'd understand If I could see you're face and your talking hands I'd understand If I could ease your pain You know I would Do all those things That make you feel so good You know I would

Whisky Girl 02:27
You've found another place to live You've found another place to dwell You've got a pretty face to hide and let me tell you something you are doing it well Don't let your long hair down Don't let out a smile, don't let out a frown Cause you don't lead me on at all my dear and let me tell you something you are doing it well You moved down South You just had to get away Said you didn't love me anymore and that's how things have to stay You can drink your whisky and I will drink mine too Then we'll think about eachother When our drinking is through You've found another place to live You've found another place to dwell You've got a pretty face to hide and let me tell you something you are doing it well

Weary Mind 04:38
I'm hopeless but I'm happy I know that life is hard I'm tired, but I'm working I want to do my part. You're beautiful, and I'm lonely At least I can say I tried I'm drinking, but not too much I don't need it to have a good time Chorus: When black turns white shades of grey When sun turns night into day The moon won't stop spinning round The worried mind won't settle down I'm dancing, too closely with the flames that i dont see I'm doing all the things I know I shouldnt be Chorus: When black turns white shades of grey When sun turns night into day The moon won't stop spinning round The worried mind won't settle down

Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to hold. They'd rather give you a song than diamonds or gold. Lonestar belt buckles and old faded levis, And each night begins a new day. If you don't understand him, an' he don't die young, He'll prob'ly just ride away. Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys. Don't let 'em pick guitars or drive them old trucks. Let 'em be doctors and lawyers and such. Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys. 'Cos they'll never stay home and they're always alone. Even with someone they love. Cowboys like smokey old pool rooms and clear mountain mornings, Little warm puppies and children and girls of the night. Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do, Sometimes won't know how to take him. He ain't wrong, he's just different but his pride won't let him, Do things to make you think he's right. Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys. Don't let 'em pick guitars or drive them old trucks. Let 'em be doctors and lawyers and such. Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys. 'Cos they'll never stay home and they're always alone. Even with someone they love.

Back when Drinking wasn't y'alls style Back when girls weren't worth our while Back when time was always free Working on cars reading magazines Stupid arguments for conversation Heavy metal on the radio station My friends all changed and no they're gone I'm all alone I'm pressing on Chorus: And all I really want's just a coke and a smile It's been to long, it's been a while All I really want's just a coke and a smile It's been to long, it's been a while I'm so lonely, so tired, so blue So lonely, so tired, how bout you? Back when I had a mom that cared Back when my cousin had a dad that was there Simple things one takes for granted A whole made lunch a mom made sandwich Getting picked up after school Extra covers when the nights are to cool I guess I'm stronger I don't know I just don't let my feelings out the door Chorus: Now my life's based on GPA That's how they say I'll be somebody someday I'd like to think I was someone now I'd like to think that I knew how to Make it through my twenty hour day And at the end have something to say But it just seems I'm passing time I've got a progress pause till the end of my life

Hold On Me 04:03
When rocks fall from sky and strike the weary ground when buds strive for sun and shallow rains and every limb stretches toward the deep blue sky my mind cant comprehend these wonders where tears of pain and joy collide the day of death is a beautiful plight I will not hold a grudge of denial open your eyes you selfish man, and sing You've got a hold on me when clouds spit and blow and streams bend round when flickering flames burn life to the ground I know I'm not in control of this feeble life my heart and hands hold You've got a hold on me I'm making sense of what I dont understand It can't break down It had to be your hands You've got a hold on me
7.
I'll take my chance that this is the right time even though my timing is bad. I'll call you up and tell you I love you and sing of all the love we had Remember when you walked me through the grape vines and we kissed all through the night. In the morning you regretted everything and moved away again You can change your mind Anytime It's fine by me The sun will rise tomorrow Tomorrow will come too soon Cause tonight is the last time I see you So stay up you sleepy moon You can change your mind Anytime It's fine by me

Smokin' 02:25
Those people outside smoking look happy Taking deep breaths 'cause it feels alright My mama always said, "don't start smoking Or doing anything just 'cause it feels alright" And I know you'll say I told you so But I don't mind I wanna drink a beer so I can feel better Forget my problems I can't make them right Preacher always said, "don't start drinking face your problems and make them right" We better stay up late and have a good time Wake up at dusk when the sun goes down Farmer always said, "get up early work your ass off till the sun goes down"

Texas 02:49
Honey get the hell out of Texas Honey I've been waiting too long Honey get the hell out of Texas Shoulda learned better Shoulda known, you don't belong Honey my bed is restless Honey my head's a breaking storm Honey my bed is restless You've been reckless since the day I was born I ain't seen ya since summer past I ain't seen ya since summer last I ain't seen ya since this town's been dry I ain't seen ya since Hannah died Honey find the next train and catch it Honey come fill my lonesome arms Honey find the next train and catch it Lord knows they ain't ever seen a love like ours

B Song 03:27
It seems like everything you work so hard for flies like a feather Melts like wax and dries like a summer rain Evaporating whitecaps with nothing to gain I don't wanna try Not one more time When rest doesn't ease your pain it just makes you cringe like a fighter Confused like a lover and cry like a baby in pain Rest in your mothers arms with nothing to gain Why can't life be simple Why do I have to complicate Bees seem fine making honey Maybe I should make honey too It seems like everything you work so hard for flies like a feather
