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...)
