Movin' On Down The Line Lyrics

It's all right, sisters
It's all right, brother

The wheel within the wheel
The water below the well
Keep the curtains drawn
Leave the record on
And be careful what you say
Bring that bottle near
Make the real unreal
And let's go out and play

It's all right, sisters
It's all right, brothers
We all get down sometimes

Starting to show me
Starting to know me
Starting to feel the shine
Starting to let go
Now that we know
It's time to move it on down the line

The x that marks the hex
That moves from next to next
Keep your head on tight
To make it through the night
You've got to make a friend along the way
So cover up your tracks
And avoid attacks
And live to love another day

Cause it's all right, sisters
It's all right, brothers
We all get down sometimes

Starting to show me
Starting to know me
Starting to feel the shine
Starting to let go
Now that we know
It's time to move it on down the line

It's all right, sisters
It's all right, brothers
We all get down sometimes

Starting to show me
Starting to know me
Starting to feel the shine
Starting to let go
Now that we know
It's time to move it on down the line

Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution Lyrics

Caught a rusty engine out of sawdust town
Made a deal with the man who shook 'em all down
So put a little grease on my axle now
I've been from Antioch to Alcatraz
I can roll you one from an empty bag
So let's take it easy to avoid any snags

CHORUS:

Goodbye daughters of the revolution
Open your eyes and see the solution
Hallelujah come join the jubilee
So let's keep on runnin'
Through the gates of the city
To give up now would be such a pity
And don't you want to see the ship
Go down with me

I'll come to you hungry I'll come to you sore
I'll come round midnight to your back door
I'll drag my tail across your floor
Gonna run you ragged til you act your age
Gonna circle the wagons gonna storm your stage
If we all plead guilty will the charges be the same

Chorus

I've been restless, baby
I'm feeling wild
Caught up in a fever dream
Save me child
Save me child

Chorus

Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down?

Good Friday Lyrics

We've been avoiding this for so long
Luxury is temporary then it's gone
I thought that we would happen
I guess I'm wrong
We'll say "hi" on the street then
We'll move along
I know this will be awkward
But not for long
Cause soon you'll have a new boy
to sing you songs

I will not forgive you
Nor will I accept the blame
I will see you on Good Friday
On Good Friday

I'm sorry I couldn't do this yesterday
And tomorrow I am busy
And what it is I can't say
And Saturday is no good
We got a show
So it has to be Good Friday
Then it's so long

I will not forgive you
Nor will I accept the blame
I will see you on Good Friday
On Good Friday

You, you come and go when you please
I know unfulfilled needs
I know you do too
But I, you know I didn't see things through
I didn't pay attention to you
But honey I tried

Peace Anyway Lyrics

You're not promised a hot meal
It's just another raw deal
Just another rainy day, everyday yeah
So you say that you cannot relate
No, no its not up for debate
You know your bills they cannot wait
But you still have time

CHORUS:
You'll find peace anyway
You'll find peace anyway

Just got to look baby, alright
Listen

So your bright eyes, they don't shine
And your watch, it don't keep time
Well guess what, neither does mine
Neither does mine
It just makes you want to cry
Just drink it all and say goodnight
But giving up don't make it right
alright, alright

CHORUS

And well I know that you might get so scared
Well, about what you find
What it means to you baby when you get there

CHORUS
CHORUS (repeated)

Nonfiction Lyrics

I don't know my telephone number
But you kiss good and I'd like to
See you tomorrow
And I don't beg, I pay, I don't barter
And if we had a child I'd like a son,
Not a daughter
'Cause she'd be just like you
You know that would not do

I'm no builder, I'm no gardener
I sing some songs, have a friend
Who's a photographer
There ain't no other language
I know how to speak
Some like their water shallow
And I like mine deep
Tied to the bottom
With a noose around my feet

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

I like to dress up like the jury
To eat like a king, to poke fun at clergy
To talk like dirt
To love you like tar
But never fall in too fast
With my north star
While you pull your hair out
I buy the drinks at the bar

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

Locust Street Lyrics

Dry bread on the table
Burn the milk
Salt the paper

And it's easy pickins
On locust street
There's no place to hide
And you can't find love on locust street
But you can hear the sunrise crying
Can't you hear the sunrise crying?
A song for you alone

Sad eyes
Weeping willow
Black cat blues
Blacked out window

And it's easy pickins
On locust street
There's no place to hide
And you can't find love on locust street
But you can hear the sunrise crying
Can't you hear the sunrise crying?
A song for you alone

Just a glimpse of what love can be
Once a dream that I owned
One of many lonely, longing souls
At least I'm not alone
Well at least I'm not alone

Ripe off the vine
Now lay rotten
Like a dead end street
Forever forgotten

And it's easy pickins
On locust street
There's no place to hide
And you can't find love on locust street
But you can hear the sunrise crying
Can't you hear the sunrise crying?
A song for you alone

Polly Lyrics

If the wild bird could speak
She'd tell of places you had been
She's been in my dreams
And she knows all the ways of the wind

Polly, come home again
Spread your wings to the wind
I felt much of the pain
As it begins

Dreams can cover much time
Still they leave blind
The will to begin
I searched for you there
And now look for you from within

Polly, come home again
Spread your wings to the wind
I felt much of the pain
As it begins v

Rockin' Chair Lyrics

Hang around, Willie Boy
Don’t you raise the sails anymore
It’s for sure, I’ve spent my whole life at sea
And I’m pushin’ age seventy three
Now there’s only one place that was meant for me

Oh, to be home again
Down in old Virginny
With my very best friend
They call him Ragtime willie

We’re gonna soothe away the rest of our years
We’re gonna put away all of our tears
That big rockin’ chair won’t go nowhere

Slow down, Willie Boy
Your heart’s gonna give right out on you
It’s true, and I believe I know what we should do
Turn the stern and point to shore
The seven seas won’t carry us no more

Oh, to be home again
Down in old Virginny
With my very best friend
They call him Ragtime willie
I can’t wait to sniff that air
Dip’n snuff, I won’t have no care
That big rockin’ chair won’t go nowhere

Hear the sound, Willie Boy
The flyin’ dutchman’s on the reef
It’s my belief
We’ve used up all our time
This hill’s to steep to climb
And the days that remain ain’t worth a dime

Oh, to be home again
Down in old Virginny
With my very best friend
They call him Ragtime Willie
Woulda been nice just t’see the folks
Listen once again to the stale jokes
That big rockin’ chair won’t go nowhere

I can hear something calling on me
And you know where I want to be
Oh willie don’t you hear that sound
Oh to be home again down in old Virginny
I just want to get my feet back on the ground
Oh to be home again down in old virginny

I’d love to see my very best friend
They call him Ragtime Willie
I believe old rockin chair’s got me
Oh to be home again

Whoa Mule Lyrics

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

All you ramblers
You silk tongued gamblers
Listen to my tale
Won't take long
To sing you my song
Full of trouble and despair

So fare thee well
You troubadours
Whose pockets have no lining
I could tell you that
All pastures stay green
But you know that I'd be lying

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

My own true love
Is a raven-haired girl
Who lives way back down the hollow
I take her by
Her lily-white hand
And into the woods we wander

Her daddy was
A river man
As mad as a hatter
Her mama, she's
As soft as snow
But that don't really matter

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

Sometimes a road
Is rocky and hard
Full of dangers unrelenting
Just take great care
To follow your star
Let the good times come a'plenty

Whoa mule, whoa mule
We're dirty but we're dreaming
Whoa mule, whoa mule
We'll both get there someday

Lay It All On Me Lyrics

Come on down crooked man
Step on up broken man
Well its ok to cry troubled man
Just ease your worried mind and rest awhile

Do you remember when it started
You had a dream
Now you never talk about it
Your fame and riches were everything
No matter what the cost
Now you wish you hadn't blown it

Well lay it all on me
Lay it all on me

Come on down crooked man
Step on up broken man
Its ok to cry troubled man
Just ease your worried mind and rest awhile

I came to see how you were doing
Its been a while
Looking back over your shoulder
You were restless and you were wild
Always running away
Once was young now is older

Lay it all on me
Lay it all on me

So come on down crooked man
Step on up broken man
Well its ok to cry troubled man
Just ease your worried mind and rest awhile

Come on down baby
Ease your worried mind
Lay it on me
Lay it on me

Downtown Money Waster Lyrics

To my low down downtown
Money waster
Your only saving grace
Is that i like to taste ya
But your flower is spoiled
Too easy to make ya
You got a .38 and your book of revelations
I got a .44 and a load of temptation

I am a rounder, like to round around
Two for one at the store on the corner
Little girl like to drink and sniffin' powders
Like the bars that stay open after hours
Like the boys that go 24-7
Too many late nights and you don't go to heaven

Thorn In My Pride Lyrics

Wake me when the day breaks
Show me how the sun shines
Tell me about your heartaches
Who could be so unkind?
Do you dream to touch me?
And smile down deep inside
Or could you just kill me?
It's hard to make up your mind, sometimes.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Are you wanting inspiration
You spill your secrets on me
Then you tell me with a whisper
Of things that will never be.
Do you hear me breating?
Does it make you want to scream?
Did you ever like a bad dream?
Sometimes life is obscene.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Lover cover me with your sleep
Let your love light shine
Lover cover me with a good dream
Let your love light shine

Oh, Josephine Lyrics

Diamonds hold the mirrors
And the spoon it holds the stars
It's been a long time baby
Since I seen the sun rise like this
Make a wish and call it "maybe"
And give me one more kiss
Ooh, I like it like this, I like it like this

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

Still dreaming through the comedown
Still fillin' every page
C'mon and touch me baby
Before I turn to rust

You know there ain't no other
It's not a matter of trust
Just sometimes love ain't enough
Love ain't enough

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

For a while I was dealing in tears and powders
For a while I was strung out beyond my means
I lost at love while climbing down the ladder
Just looking for the song to set me free

No waiting for redemption
No leaving love behind
You gotta know where you wanna be
It gets cold outside

It's too late to play it safe
So let's let it all ride
Let's let it all ride
Let it all ride

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

Twice as Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)

Wounded Bird Lyrics

Off the tracks
Lost the rail
Trying to squeeze a little blood
Out a rusty nail
When your thirsty
Thirsty

Behind your eyes
You feel the burn
As your downhill ride takes a
Solemn turn for the lonely
Lonely

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

It's like you spent a long time
In an empty bed
In an empty room
With an empty head
Full of nothing
Nothing

Now all you got left
Is the skin of your teeth
And the red in your eye
Six feet deep
To get ready

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

The waiting is over
So let's roll in the clover
Time for a head full of stars
Let's pull back the curtain
Only one thing's for certain
Well, we don't have very long

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

Set your mind to fly

Boomer's Story Lyrics

Come and gather all around me
Listen to my tale of woe
Got some good advice to give you
Lots of things you oughta know
Take a tip from one who's travelled
And never stopped a-ramblin' round
'Cause once you get the roamin' fever
You never want to settle down, boy
You never want to settle down

I met a little gal in Frisco
And I asked her to be my wife
Told her I was tired of roamin'
Goin' to settle down for life
Then I heard the whistle blowin'
And I knew it was the Red Ball Train
And I left that gal beside the railroad
And I never saw the gal again, boy
I never saw the gal again

Saw that girl again
Never Saw that girl again
I left that girl beside the railroad
And I never saw that girl again

Travelled all over the country
I travelled everywhere
I been on every Branch Line railroad
And I never paid a nickel fare
I been from Maine to Califor'ny
And from Canada to Mexico
I never tried to save no money
And now I got no place to go, boy
Now I got no place to go

Listen to a Boomer's story
Pay attention to what I say
Well, I hear another train a-comin'
Guess I'll be on my way
If you want to do me a favor
When I lay me down and die
Just dig my grave beside the railroad
So I can hear the trains go by, boys
So I can hear the trains go by

Hear the train go by
I can hear the train go by
Just bury my bones be side the railroad
So I can hear the train go by

Don't Do It Lyrics

Baby don't you do it, don't do it
Don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

A sacrifice would make you happy if nothing for myself
Now you wanna leave me for the love of someone else
My pride is all gone whether I'm right or wrong
I need you baby to keep on keepin' on

You know I'm trying to my best
Oh i'm trying to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

My biggest mistake was loving you too much and letting you know
Now you got me where you want me and you won't let me go
If my heart was made of glass well then you'd surely see
How much heartache and misery, girl, you've been causing me

While I've been trying to do my best
Well I've tried to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

Go down to the river and there I be
I'm gonna jump in girl, but you don't care bout me
Open up your eyes
Can't ya see I love ya?
Open up you heart, girl
Can't ya see I need ya?

Oh baby don't do it, do it, do it
Don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it don't you break my heart

My biggest mistake was loving you too much and letting you know
Now you got me where you want me and you won't let me go
If my heart was made of glass well then you'd surely see
How much heartache and misery, girl, you've been causing me

While I've been trying to do my best
You know I've tried to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart
