Church Hill Downs

I'm gonna win no matter what they say
I'm gonna win and I'll fight it all the way
I won't come home empty-handed
That's the last thing I could do
I'm gonna win for you

Throw a five pence down on the barrelhead
Lord, I'm goin' all in
Can't come back to this forsaken place
Livin' this life of sin
No man is worth a damn
If he don't own his own land
I'll do what I do to get through

I'm gonna win no matter what they say
I'm gonna win and I'll fight it all the way
Well, I won't come home empty-handed
That's the last thing I could do
I'm gonna win for you
Some don't learn what's been told
'Til it's too late and they're too old
Anything of worth has been sold
'Til they're left alone and out in the cold

Kitchen's too small for more than one cook
Some say it's a short movie
While others are writin' a book

I'm gonna win no matter what they say
I'm gonna win and I'll fight it all the way
I won't come home empty-handed
That's the last thing I could do
I'm gonna win for you
I'm gonna win for you

Fairgrounds

Now you're gone
And all is well
Things they've changed
From that hell
Time it don't slow
For no man
Can't believe my mind
What you don't understand

Well the fountain ran dry
You didn't even try
Can you hear the sounds
On the fairgrounds

So sad things had to change
Time to rearrange
Ain't life strange
Time to move along
Sing a happy song
Once you're gone

Yeah, the fountain ran dry
You didn't even try
Can you hear the sounds
On the fairgrounds

Long Way From Home

 
You're a long way from home, boy
You're a long way from home
You're a long way from home, boy
You're a long way from home

Stationed in the wind
Mountain streams begin
So far from home
Lord, I never felt better
A bridge between the states
Diners and tailgates

Wave it high
Sing your song
Don't take too long
Here we are
We're not far
From where we belong

(Jimmy Treehouse!...Bobby Twoteeth...)

Tackle on our backs, soon to get better
Switch to the right tracks, gonna send a letter

Wave it high
Sing your song
Don't take too long
Here we are
We're not far
From where you belong 

Bird That Flew

Time, I don't believe in you
What they said ain't true
Well, time

Love, like a bird that flew
Time caught up on you
And love

Blinded all I want to be
So gone I can't see

Crime, one you can't see
'Cause you're far from me
Well, crime

And love
Like a bird that flew
Time caught up on you
And love

Blinded all I want to be
So gone I can't see

Cadillac Lake


Feelin' high
City lights flyin' by
Soon enough we'll be gone
To Cadillac Lake
Lord, for heaven's sake
We'll be fishin' before too long

'Been a long time to come
So sweet in the settin' sun
Fireflies flashin' bright
It's gonna' be a great, great night
Alright, babe...

I woke with the sun
Last night was so much fun
I'm gonna' do it all over again

'Been a long time to come
So sweet in the settin' sun
Fireflies flashin' bright
It's gonna' be a great, great night
Alright, babe...

Feelin' high
City lights flyin' by
Soon enough we'll be gone
To Cadillac Lake
Lord, for heaven's sake
I'll be fishin' before too long

'Been a long time to come
So sweet in the settin' sun
Fireflies flashin' bright
It's gonna' be a great, great night
Alright, babe... Yeah, yeah
Awe, for heaven's sakes

(...Billy grab your fishin' pole...)

Harmony Sand


I know a place
For us to go
Without a trace
Buried by the snow

It seems to me
We can fly
But we don't belong here
Way up in the sky

Follow your heart
Into the sun
Don't tear it apart
Or come undone

I say we're free
Free and clear
We can travel
On for another year

Seems to me
We can fly
Don't we belong here
Way up in the sky

Follow your heart
Into the sun
Tear it apart
Come undone

Lightning Lights the Way

Hold me on down
I see you comin' around
Lightning lights the way
See you coming around today

I'll be on my knees
I see you begging, please
Well, the door slams in the end
Can you bring her back down again
Sing it on and run
Hate to be alone
Still you're flyin' on

The storm's coming through town
The rain's falling down
Lightning lights the way
Can't believe it's coming down today
The birds are singing loud
Well, your memory makes me proud
I swear, I feel you in the wind
Even though we were next to kin
Bring it on and run
Hate to be alone
Still you fly on

Bring it on and run
I hate to be alone
But still you're ridin' on

Hold me on down
I'll be coming around
The lightning lights the way
Let her come in... 'round today
Bring it on and run
Hate to be alone
Still you're ridin' on
Carry me on home
Still you're flyin' on
Fly on, fly on

Stand Tall


Don't you fall
Stand tall
My love is strong
And I'm gonna' help you to carry on

Hold on again
It won't be long, my friend

In the shadows they are real
Well, a heart they can steal
Well, your mind they can break
Well, your soul they will take

Seen it all before
Lord, better close the door

Hold on again
Won't be long, my friend
Hold on again
Won't be long, my friend

Can't Be Saved

I told you
I can't be saved
I'm already on my way

Look around
You'll be gone
Hard to say
Who's right or wrong
Saddle up and ride on

Turn around and get lost
I know that you can't pay the cost

Look around
You'll be gone
Hard to say
Who's right or wrong
Saddle up and ride on

I told you
I can't be saved
I'm already on my way

Look around
You'll be gone
Hard to say
Who's right or wrong
Saddle up and ride on

I heard you say you
Want your life back
Every way you turn is
Off track

Look around
You'll be gone
Hard to say
Who's right or wrong
Saddle up and ride on

Water Into Wine


Who's comin' around my door?
Don't want you around no more
Everyone's sayin'
It's the end

I couldn't hear the screams
Don't you know what I mean
Everyone's sayin'
You're my friend

If you say I was wrong
Come with me
All night long
If you think I can tell
I won't prevail
I will be at your door

I'm going down to the water
I'm gonna' jump right in
I'm gonna' help you wash away your sins
I come from another time
I fell down from the Great Freight Line
What do you think about this mess we're in

If you said I was wrong
Come with me
All night long
If you think I can tell
I won't prevail
I will be at your door
If you think I can see
Come along with me
If you think I can tell then
I won't prevail
I will be at your door

If you think I was wrong
Come with me all night long
If you think I can tell
I will prevail I will be at your door

Angels Pass

Slowly sighed as the angels pass
Don't you lose your grasp
I know the days are long

Fleeting glimpses of the rising sun
Got my mind undone
I know the days are long

Don't pass by
From the mountain high
She's all alone
Trying to get back home

So you say she is from your town
When she comin' down
I hope it don't take long
I saw her floatin' from across the room
Couldn't leave too soon
We'll play our favorite song

Don't pass by
From the mountain high
She's all alone
Trying to get back home

Devil


Long time to come
We'll see when you're gone
How we were so wrong
So long

Been nine weeks
Lord, will it get better
Who can I call
Should I send a letter
Go home, go home

You're not to blame
To me it's all the same
Devil's on the way
Time for you to pay
Nowhere to hide
Nowhere to run
Die by the pen
Livin' by the gun
Hold on, my friend It won't be long

Well, the sign ahead
Lord, what you think it read
Carry on this way
You won't see another day

You're not to blame
To me it's all the same
Devil's on the way
Time for you to pay
Nowhere to hide
Nowhere to run
Die by the pen
Livin' by the gun
Hold on, my friend
It won't be long

Another sign ahead
Lawd, what you think it read
Carry on this way
You won't see another day

You're not to blame
To me it's all the same
Devil's on the way
Time for you to pay
Nowhere to hide
Nowhere to run
Die by the pen
Livin' by the gun
Hold on, my friend It won't be long

The River


I've been
Thinkin'
You've been runnin' around far too long
Keep on
Sinkin'
One more night and then you're gone

It may
Be late
Too late to ever know
So sad
Today
Watchin' the river flow
So slow

Night winds
Shakin'
This old house to the very core
My heart breakin'
Tryin' hard to find the door

It may
Be late
Too late to ever know
So sad
Today
Watchin' the river flow
So slow

Colorblind


I could see the colors everywhere
So much I'd stop to stare
Like the wind blowin' through the pine
To tell you I'm colorblind

I could see the colors everywhere
Like the trees...in the air
I could see the colors
I could see the colors like no others

I've been known
To raise my tone
I can tell you this
My heart is bliss
Well, I've been known
To raise my tone
I can say
I never did you that way
Never did you that way

Well, I can see the colors everywhere
So many I'd stop and stare
Like the wind blowin' through the pines
Just to tell you I'm so colorblind
I could see the colors in the trees
In the fountains
Through all the memories
Brothers and sisters
That have gone In the past
Telling (you and) me
We're ever gonna' last

Well, I've been known
To raise my tone
I can say
I never did you that way

Well, I've been known
To raise my tone
I can say
I never did you that way
Never did you that way

Moonshine


Good to see you
Always
For you're
The one I love

Thank the Lord
For the backwoods
Jump right in
Like a diving dove

Shadows fall
On the wall
Carried by
The sun
Shine

Take your Southern comfort
Got my Northern aggression
Jam the gears
Hard starward
No chance for
Redemption

Shadows fall
On the wall
Carried by
The sun
Shine

Shine

Shine

I'm gonna love yours
Just like they're mine
I'm gonna love yours
Just like they're mine
I just wanna' know
Is that fine
I'm gonna love yours
Just like they're mine

Early one mornin'
While the sun was shinin'
There's dreams in the wall
The cracks

Your strategy
Won't run
Back again

Batteries fall
Out of gas

And the cracks in the sky
Everybody wants to know
Just when they die
I'm gonna love yours
Just like they're mine

Well, I'm gonna love yours
Just like they're mine
Well, I'm gonna love yours
Just like they're mine
Well, I'm gonna love yours
Just like they're mine

Sun Down


Please don't ask me again
Are you gonna' be my friend
Spring, summer and fall
I don't like winter
At all

I can
See the sun
Comin' down on
Everyone
I can
See the sun
Comin' down on
Everyone

Well, I've been here before
Please don't walk out the door
I got no room to talk
We should
Go for a walk

I can
See the sun
Comin' down on
Everyone I can
See the sun
Comin' down on
Everyone

Mama, I miss you
I'm goin' next door
Mama, I miss you
I've been here before
Mama... Mama... Mama... Mama...

Know Good


Time
To shut it down
I'm seein' things that aren't around
I hope
I make it
Through the night

I could sit and pray
Well, all night and all day
For the Lord
Please, carry me away

I know that I
Have been no good
I couldn't settle
Even if I should
I know that I
Have been unkind
And all I ever wanted
Was to be fine

Someday I'll explain
Well, now I'm in
Too much pain
Some say
It's all the same

I know that I
Have been no good
I couldn't settle down
Even if I should
I know that I
Have been unkind
And all I ever wanted
Was to be fine

Well, it's time
To shut it down
I'm seein' things that aren't around
I hope
I make it
Through the night
I could sit and pray
Well, all night and all day
For the Lord
Please, carry me away

I know that I
Have been no good
I couldn't settle down
Even if I should
I know that I
Have been unkind
And all he ever wanted
And all he ever wanted A
nd all I ever wanted
Was to be fine

All Aboard


All aboard
The train's leavin' town
Thank you, my Lord
For showing me
Around

Crutch


I wonder if your heart
Remembers how to play
Soldiers stand apart
Pressure from the day
And seated
Sittin'
Sung
Stretched out and flying high
Hurry, you're the one
A failure to cry

You need to blame
You need to blame
All your shame
The crutch or the cain

Can we understand
A virtue of the man
With fortune and the love
With a heart that's opened up
And seated
Sittin'
Sung
Stretched out and flying high
Hurry, you're the one
A failure to cry

You need to blame
You need to blame
All your shame
The crutch or the cain

You need to blame
You need to blame
All your shame
The crutch or the cain

The Ninth


Can you see the light dim
Must be quite a show
When the tickets go on sale
Have to let me know

I'm goin'
I'm goin'
Goin'
Gone
Lock me away
Rave on
Lock me away
Rave on

Are you gonna' hang 'em high
When the sun goes down
Don't you think you'd better pray
On the edge of town

I'm goin'
I'm goin'
Goin'
Gone
Lock me away
Rave on
Lock me away
Rave on

I'm goin'
I'm goin'
I'm goin'
Gone
Lock me away
Rave on
Lock me away
Brave on

Can you see the light dim
