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

The Shady Grove Lyrics

Meet me by the banks of the sweet primrose
And we’ll follow it down
To the shady grove
Bonnie blow the breeze by the cabin door
No two lovers could ask for more
So grab your fiddle and your old banjo
Play a country blues so sweet and slow
We’ll sing along to the drunkards doom
And rock all night by the silvery moon

These old trees grow straight to heaven
So it goes in the shady grove

When the old hen crackles
And the ground gets cold
Our fine buck skin
Dances through the snow
We’ll take to town on a saturday night
You and me baby make such a sight

Whiskey wine name your pleasure
So it goes in the shady grove

Hey boys gather round we’ll put it up
They’ll tear it down
Heay boys rockabye
Kiss the pretty girls goodbye

Hey boys up on high
Don’t you stop til you reach the sky
Hey boys let it ring
A song for everyone to sing

When the fish start biting
At the new may flies
And the muddy roads have all done dried
The honeysuckle says it’s summertime
That old yellow sun is mighty kind

Hear the seasons come with reasons
So it goes in the shady grove

Won’t you be my lullaby babe
In this sweet bye and bye babe
It’s okay to cry let the sadness pass you by
And know i’ll always love you babe

Hey boys up on high
Don’t you stop til you reach the sky
He boys let it ring
A song for everyone to sing

Hotel Illness Lyrics

Oh good heavens, baby where's my medicine?
I must have left it outside with my etiquette
The undertaker's rule of thumb
It's hard to talk with a novocaine tongue

This room smells like hotel illness
The scars I hide are now your business
I can't seem to make hair nor hide of this
No baby love is not a punishment.

Hypnotized by your rotten behavior
This week's fashion is last year's flavor
I got a head full of sermons and a mouth full of spiders
The politics of the world's greatest liar

So tell me baby is it true all those things that they say about you...

Could I've Been So Blind Lyrics

How could I've been so blind
So empty that I've never felt warm
Can I spell it out
Turn myself out of my home
Lookin' like a fool
Feelin' even worse than it seems
Tryin' hard as nails
Beleivin' only in myself

And now it looks like innocence is gone
I know right and I know what's wrong
Feeling lonely that's the way it goes
Sometimes

But my greatest fear
Paint a smile from ear to ear
Alone and cryin'
Living like this is no better than dying

I tell you baby things are gonna' change
Looking like we were caught out in the rain
Feeling lonely
That's the way it goes
Sometimes

Chorus:
Could I ever have been so blind
Hardest thing I ever had to do
Was stand up straight and tell it all to you
Look you right in the eye
Tell you baby sorry but I have lied

And now it looks like innocence is gone
I know right and I know what's wrong
Feeling lonely that's the way it goes

Sometimes
(Repeat Chorus 4 times)

Garden Gate Lyrics

Brown eyed girl
Precious flower
From your slumber awake
We have come to the fateful hour
And our love cannot wait

Chorus
Meet me at the gate
At the garden gate
Meet me at the garden gate
You made a promise now don’t be late
Meet me at the garden gate

Don’t tell your mother
Don’t tell your father
We both know it’s far too late
When we fly they won’t come after
And they will know our love is great

Chorus

You are sweet as you are tender
You are wise beyond your years
You are a jewel amongst the cinders
So don’t shed a sorry tear

Appaloosa Lyrics

To be struck by the arrow of weakness
On the guilded path to forgiveness
To find my way home when morning comes
To stay your friend
When it’s all said & done
Simple as lightning starting wild fire
Just down from a trip off my high wire
Just coming home to walk my own floors
Coming home to the one i adore

Appaloosa (x3)
Take me home
Where i can dream my days away

We took your tears back to the river
Knowing all the while
There would be more later
So it goes in a rainy day town
C’mon and won’t you let me lay you down

Sometimes the sun makes beggers believers
And sometimes the shrine
Is built to deceivers
In between let oblivion ring
Oh let me hear all the sad angels sing

Welcome to the Goodtimes Lyrics

Did it make you stop and think
You're on the brink
And not to test you 'cause you
Don't know how far you'd go
Did you make a big mistake
You curse your fate
And you wish you could leave this life
For just one day

Welcome to the goodtimes honey
Did you bring your own parade?
Welcome to the big time baby
Time for a serenade

Did you say you lost your pride?
You tried to hide
But you're not strong enough
To ever get away

And it only goes to show
What we all know
That the tables will surely turn
For you one day

It should come as no surprise
Just realize, that when it all comes down
Who is really on your side

Darling of the Underground Press Lyrics

So the story goes that you
Sold your soul for delusions of beauty and courage
While young at heart is a nice place to start
Can the truth hold all this baggage

So tell all your foes
Because my friends know
That your white flag ain't no sign for surrender
And those books that you've read have gone straight to your head
And made you the great pretender

I've heard that it's good to think before you speak
Though I've heard that it's good to bathe once a week

So tell me how it feels it if even seems real to be the darling of the underground press
Baby please can I see some ID
I don't believe you come from a royal family

I've heard that it's good to think before you speak
Though I've heard that it's good to bathe yourself once a week
Oh I've heard that it's good to look before you cross
No one, no one will ever find you if you don't get yourself lost

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

Lady Of Avenue A Lyrics

You said goodnight
Wrapped your scarf up tight
And left into a winter scene
The lower east side
Is just a place to hide
A place to privately dream

Chorus:
Good times and lost nights on Avenue A
Don’t let the bright lights take you away
You just can’t believe
What the city folks say
My lady of Avenue A

These old downtown streets
Where lovers meet
To sometimes laugh to sometimes cry
A strange parade all new things fade
But somehow this place stays the same

Chorus:
Good times and lost nights on Avenue A
Don’t let the bright lights take you away
You just can’t believe
What the city folks say
My lady of Avenue A

You fall asleep
I hear you breathe
The snow outside
I make some tea
The cats awake
And plays with string
As i slip into a dream

Kept My Soul Lyrics

Sad and sorry, troubled and tired
Wild with worry mad with desire
Junky jitters bed bug critters
Now who would die for love
Midnight favors sweet sick flavors
Now who would die for love

Chorus:
You can see by the look in my eyes
That the devil takes his own
And you can see
Through these holes in my heart
That i’ve still kept my soul

Sick and waiting, down and blue
Cold and kickin’ what to do
Creepy crawlin non stop jawin’
Who would die for love
Look who’s holding, sister rolling
Now who would die for love

Chorus:
You can see by the look in my eyes
That the devil takes his own
And you can see
Through these holes in my heart
That i’ve still kept my soul

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

What Is Home Lyrics

As i stare into the frozen starlight
My hands burn with the scars of past lives
I see past all the falling chimneys

Home to me
What is home to me

As i charge into the foothills of your life
I stand under the fading sunlight
Hope it will return next morning

Home to me
What is home to me
I can't wait to find
A home for me

Silence gauge me, into my soul
I approach you this morning,
Which one will you be
You're far more important
Than you know to me

As i stare into the frozen sunlight
My hands burn with the scars of past lives
I see past all the falling chimneys

Home for me
What is home for me
I can't wait to find
A home for me

Jealous Again Lyrics

Cheat the odds that made you
Brave to try to gamble at times
Well I feel like dirty laundry
Sending sickness on down the line
Tell you why

'Cause I'm jealous, jealous again
Thought it time I let you in
Yeah, I'm jealous, jealous again
Got no time, baby

Always drunk on Sunday
Try'n to feel like I'm at home
Smell the gasoline burning
Boys out feeling nervous and cold

(Repeat 1st Chorus)

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you
Never felt like smiling
Sugar wanna' kill me yet
Find me loose lipped and laughing
Singing songs ain't got no regrets
(Repeat 1st and 2nd Chrous)

Don't you think I want to
Don't you think I would
Don't you think I'd tell you baby
If I only could
Am I acting crazy
Am I just too proud
Am I just plain lazy
Am I, Am I, Am I, ever

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

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

Feathers Lyrics

I feel clean again
I don't waste my sin
I can't spare a grin
Because it's bad blood time again

My morning full on speed
No it's not so rare to me
This is, this is a hungry need
Won't you help me to plant the seed

And if it grows
Yes, we'll know, oh we'll know
If I found you a floating feather
Sent down to help me fly away
If I found you a floating feather
I would be amazed
I'd be amazed

Your lips taste dry again
A death cold has got your skin
I'm not lost in who loses or wins
I would just like for this spell to end

Cause I'm ready
Ready to begin
Begin again
If I found you a floating feather
Sent down to help me fly away
If I found you a floating feather
I would be amazed

I, well I remember one time
You were all smiles
Nothing stood in our way
Well so here I am now
Here I am just wanting to return to those days
We'll get there baby
I'll take you there babe
Oh, we will find, we will find our way

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
