Good Morning Captain Lyrics

There's a ruckus on the levee
Unruly crowd on the court house steps
If we make it to sunday
I'm sho' nuff gonna ask the good lord for help
With a mouthful of salt i try to explain
If money was sand i couldn't hold one grain
I feel like a thefe that knows he's been framed
For leaving the watch but stealing the chain

Chorus
Good morning captain
I wish there was another way
But my baby is wantin'
Me roll around in her bed all day

Well the late nights got me reellin'
Spillin out the bottle
Right into the next day
Got a funny little feelin'
Gonna be like this till my dying day
There's mud in my eye
But i can still see
Everybody in town is tryin' to murder me
If they don't get me ‘spose the hangman will
So i better think twice about making this deal
Chorus

Magnolia magnolia resting
Under the shade of your leaves

Make Glad Lyrics

Ballad and dagger
Amazing grace
Sons of rock bottom
Take your rightful place
Gold tooth and top hat
Ace up your sleeve
Show me your pistol so i will believe

Chorus:
Make glad
Find the beauty in the broken
Make glad
May your heart always be open
Make glad
Keep an eye out for your brother
Make glad
And i will see you in the other

Turpentine babies
With one foot in the south
Turned out the turn key
For runnin his mouth
Jump say the sheriff
Get up outta that hole
Get in line and do what your told
Chorus

Soul Singing Lyrics

I've been down
Cascading and blue without a sound
Now I've traded my black feathers for a crown
So feed me milk and honey lay me down
Lay me down
Look around
Show me holy places not yet found
Lets disappear and we'll hide underground
And we'll get high and we'll feel safe and sound
It comes around
Around

Chorus:
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Come on now come on now

Home bound
Tired of tired of running town to town
Tired of my heart turned upside down
Now my life a smile and not a frown
The sound
The sound

Chorus

Shine Along Lyrics

Well my rider done left me
Mama wouldn’t even close the door
Now i’m drunk and ornery
Sittin here on my dirty floor

Chorus
Shine along, shine along
Someday love’s gonna take me home
Shine along, shine along
Someday love’s gonna take me home

Now i’m broke and hungry
I’ve been out on the rails too long
Got a mind that’s worried
That the end is coming up on me strong

Chorus

If you see my old rider
See her out on some friday night
Tell her i don’t miss her
Tell her time has been treating me right

Fork In The River Lyrics

The wine may have gone sour
But you can't blame the band
Like you can't blame the locusts
For draught on the land
You can't blame the sea
‘Cause it's full of your tears
And you can't blame me
For wanting you here

Chorus:
There's a fork in the river
No time to think twice
A change in the weather
So keep close an eye
A hissing in the wood pile
A voice on the wind
A fork in the river
Is where we begin

I once found a rainbow
Lyin' flat on the ground
But i just kept walkin'
Thinking more were around
The buzzard, the joker,
The beggar, the throne
The roses, the sugar,
No safe passage home

Chorus

Roll Old Jeremiah Lyrics

Roll old Jeremiah
Roll it all night long
Roll old Jeremiah
The fox jumps over the hollow log

Wave goodbye to albuquerque
Say hello sioux city falls
You got three good wheels still rolling
Dont let the dust set on you long

Chorus
It’s just another day from here to there
It’s just another night alone
Yes the wind it is a simple friend
What brought you here can take you home

Lean as these hard times
Dry down to the bone
Roll old Jeremiah
Roll that whiskey barrell home

When you hear that whistle blowing
When your smoke is in the air
Roll on Jeremiah
Roll on home without a care

Double mounted double gal
Lifted a pistol in jesuit bend
Up to viper she did run
Careful Jeremiah now
You know how this is gonna go down
A bullet don’t care where it comes from
Run Jeremiah run run run

Chorus
It’s just another day from here to there
It’s just another night alone
Yes the wind it is a simple friend
What brought you here
Can take you home

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

Wiser Time Lyrics

No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile

You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another road song
Funny but I bet you never left home

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Fourteen seconds till' sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

I Ain't Hiding Lyrics

Rust on my pickups
And blood on the stage
Seeds in the ashtray
And coke on a blade
Nyc delivers that's a guarantee
The only thing that keep the day from me

Line at the bathroom
Line at the bar
Take it outside
Do the rest in the car
Hard candy babies in a bright light fright
Rock and roll rat race everybody's uptight,
That's right

Ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

Stayed on the dance floor
'Cause you can't find the door
Can't run out 'cause there's always more
Keep on rocking 'cause it's not even four
Turn up the bass until your ears get sore

I ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

Ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

Oh Sweet Nuthin' Lyrics

Say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all
He knocked the shirt right of his back
He ain't got nothing at all

And say a word for Ginger Brown
He walks with his head down to the ground
Took the shoes right off his feet
And threw the poor boy right out in the street
And this is what he said:

Oh, sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all
Oh, sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all

Say a word for Polly May
She can't tell the night from the day
They threw her out in the street
Just like a cat she landed on her feet

And say a word for Joana Love
She ain't got nothing at all
With every day she falls in love
And every night she falls
And when she does she says:

Oh, sweet nuthin'
You know She ain't got nothing at all
[Woe, oh] sweet nuthin'
She ain't got nothing at all
Oh, let me hear you

Oh, say a word, say a word for Jimmy Brown
He ain't got nothing at all, not a thing
And not a shirt, shirt on his back
No, he ain't got nothing at all

And say a word for Ginger
He walks with his head to the ground
He took the shoes, took the shoes from his feet, from his feet
And threw the poor boy out into the street
And then he said:

Oh, sweet sweet nuthin'
She ain't got, she ain't got, she ain't got nothing at all
Sweet sweet sweet sweet nuthin'
She ain't got
Sweet Sweet nothing ...
Oh, let me hear you

She ain't got nothing at all ...

She Gave Good Sunflower Lyrics

I've been lost in the headlights
All night long
Said i've felt taller, yes I heard
the dealer's song

Say babe don't mark me absent
I only missed out by a fraction
Be the sun that bursts through my clouds
It's hard enough just living on this ground

chorus:
Say don't pretend to me
I beg and i plead, your sunflower I need
Thought nothing would surprise me
I was wrong now i see
Come on baby and just do me
if you please

This made me reminiscing
About the honey we made
I feel warm in your blizzard
And your flood I crave
I won't abuse my anger
I promise you no lecture

Come be the sun bursting through my clouds
It's hard enough just living on the ground
chorus

Sister Luck Lyrics

Worried sick my eyes are hurting
To rest my head I'd take a life
Outside the girls are dancing
'Cause when you're down it just don't seem right

Feeling second fiddle to a dead man
Up to my neck with your disregard
Like a beat dog that's walking on the broadway
No one wants to hear you when you're down

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

A flip of a coin
Might make a head turn
No surprise, who sleeps
Held my hand over a candle
Flame burnin' but I never weep

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

What a shame
(Repeat 2nd Chorus)

And The Band Played On Lyrics

Did you hear gaberial blow his horn?
Then what sent those blackbirds on the wing
Into this house we were born to leave
Like an arrow shot over the mountain
Like a bottle tossed in the sea
I have journeyed, I have traveled
Now home calls me

Chorus:
Let's all gather round the grand piano
Let's all raise our glasses in the air
Give a cheer to the jolly good fellows
And everyone who's cared

Who will mend this wagon wheel?
To get this show on the road
The music sounds just like it feels

Chorus

And the band played on
Through the storm
Through the wicked wicked rain
And the band played on
In golden harmony

What straw will break this camels back?
Will we grow to love the load
Can't wait to be what time reveals

Chorus

Sting Me Lyrics

If you feel like a riot, then don't you deny it
Put your good foot forward
No need for heroics I just want you to show it
Now's the time to shine
Your independence is a half ass deliverance
The train left the station
The recognition of the same old condition
Your symptoms showing through

Well regardless of the truth
You still act so aloof
In the face of your judge & jury
You have the nerve to say not guilty

But can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Well the bells ring out for the crimes of the century
By courtesy of your mother
The signs reads welcome to the valley of discovery
Look at what money can buy
Sons & daughters better open your eyes
Tell me what you're seeing
This submission is a tired tradition
It's everyone's sacrifice

Well believe you me
I've got nothing up my sleeve
Except a heart and a chip on my shoulder
Yes I'm young and don't like getting older

Yeah but can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Come on my sweet little thing
What new things can you show me today
I got one question
I believe it's subjective
What is a wasp without her sting?

I don't want to sound bitter
Yeah you touch me just like murder
Living ain't so easy
When all I want from you is to sting me

Can you sting me

Remedy Lyrics

Baby, baby why can't you sit still?
Who killed that bird out on you window sill?
Are you the reason that he broke his back?
Did I see you laugh about that?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it glide?

Can I have some remedy?

Remedy for me please.
Cause if I had some remedy
I'd take enough to please me.

Baby, baby why did you dye your hair?
Why you always keeping with your mother's dare?
Baby why's who's who, who know you too?
Did the other children scold on you?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it slide

Been A Long Time Lyrics

Earthbound wingless dream
Child born to necessity
Tied to crimson velvet wings
She flies
New moon midnight star
Medicine is in the jar
Head full of going far
She flies
Lost out on the dream road
Looking for a key hole
Never try to fight it
Feeling right inside it

Low country blushing bride
Blind to the ways of time
Clear crystal burning mind
She flies
Falling through liquid air
With music everywhere
Stone faces silent stare
She flies
The old guard on the hill
Can feel the chill
Deep into the freeze of
Those who don't believe

Chorus
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love

Damp with this morning dew
The world is bright and new
Her word is always true
She flies
Step into the new day
Right over the old way
We are the horizon
See our future smiling

So Many Times Lyrics

So many times i've been fooling myself
It's a hard hand to play,
Falls on nobody else
Those in the city reaching out to grab hold
Of something they've only heard about
And never been shown

Who do you turn to and what do you say
When she's got the power and she got the way
Does it matter at all
Who survives and who falls
When we live under darkness
And hide behind walls

Why would anyone even try to hold sway
Over somebody else in such a small way

Where are the answers to the problems we face
Who would teach us
About sharing and living in grace

Who do you turn to and what do you say
When she's got the power and she got the way
Does it matter at all
Who survives and who falls
When we live under darkness
And hide behind walls

Thick 'N' Thin Lyrics

Got a chainsaw buzzin'
Who's that cussin'
Eyes start blinkin'
The boys all start their wishing

Left holdin' the bag again
Buring it at both ends
Don't believe she's a friend

Chorus:
Thick, thick & thin
Let it loose now, let it go to the wind

Got my clock tock tickin'
Hear the madame start bitchin'
See the boys itch itchin'
Do girls ever know what they're missin'

But it sounds like shit to me
Last laugh mine will be
I don't believe she is clean

Chorus:
Thick, baby, yeah, thick & thin
