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

Been A Long Time (Waiting On Love) 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

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

A Train Still Makes A Lonely Sound Lyrics

As i listen to the wheels
Hear them going round and round
It reminds me of the trains
That still makes a lonely sound
It reminds me of the girl
That came from knoxville town
And how on that april day
When she took this old boy down

Chorus:
Oh tennessee you got me runnin’
And i’m not coming back this time
Way out west is where i’m going
To forget the one i left behind

Well i might have seen moses
Standin’ on the penn state line
Just another wanderer
With an angel on his mind
I know love has it’s reasons
The way it comes and it goes
There’s no mystery in seasons
Or of this hard cold road

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

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

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

Houston Don't Dream About Me Lyrics

Another week in the driver's seat
With your feet up on the dashboard
The rain kept a steady beat
As i watched you dream of houston
I ain't ever going back,
Yes sir that's a fact
As you waved your cowboy hat
And sang “the yellow rose of texas”

Just trying to make high ground
Has kept us on the run
There's no crime in towing the line
Because fortune is smiling on us baby
And we're going to walk in the sun

Chorus:
I might dream about houston
But houston don't dream about me
And if i can keep it between the lines
Who knows what will be

Loose change days and motel nights
Day old coffee dollar postcards
State troopers flashing lights
As we listen to the thunder
As we talked about our past
So we see our coming future
You tell me you know love can last

While staring out the window
Just looking for a place to hide
A place to ease our minds
A place away from yesterday
Close to tomorrow away from the sorrows
Of living other people's time

How long how long
Til we feel the change
How long how long
Will the skies be grey
How long how long

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

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

The Last Place That Love Lives Lyrics

Up high in a mansion
On a mountain of jagged rock
Behind two iron doors so
Heavy they need no lock

Chorus
Is the last place that love lives
Where the sad woman cries
Is the last place that love lives
Behind your eyes?

You hold up your finger
And you place it to my lips
You tell me that anger
Can never get rid of this

Chorus

Never blind to misfortune
Never deaf to the sorrowful moan
Set adrift on an ocean
Until i find that peaceful shore

Aimless Peacock Lyrics

Hey boys, gather round
We'll put it up and they'll tear it down
Hey boys, rockabye
Kiss the pretty girls goodbye

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

Song for everyone to sing
Song for everyone to sing
Song for everyone to sing
Song for everyone to sing

Song for everyone to sing
Song for everyone to sing
Song for everyone to sing
Song for everyone to sing

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

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

Greenhorn Lyrics

Greenhorn dreams of salty seas
Of maidens fair and lovely
Who beckon and call
From emerald walls
Of cities far and strange
Greenhorn hears melodies
From mountaintops and low valleys
Of chimney smoke and easter’s hope
And love not lost in vain

Chorus:
I wanna wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes
Wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes
Before i see the world
Under darkening skies
I wanna wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes

Greenhorn feels the cold wind blow
And now he knows it’s time to go
Now he longs for open roads
He longs to leave the pines
And leave he will with a tearful eye
But he won’t stop to wave goodbye
He won’t stop to look behind
On just what used to be

Days to years child to man
Lonely fears she understands

Chorus:
I wanna wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes
Wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes
Before i see the world
Under darkening skies
I wanna wake up in the morning
Wake and look into your eyes

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

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

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

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

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
