Lost in the City
On the mountain once there was a fire
Now there’s bushes where the huckleberries grow,
If you find them, I’ll be waiting there
That’s where hungry bears like you and me go,

Wind and raindrops hear from singing with the sweet voices like the syrup from the trees
Wool and candles by the fire will stick together like the honey from the bees
I know, I know this used to be your home
Living there was easy

In the evening, safely sleeping, you’ll protect me from the coolness of the night,
Warm and winter sherry with you is the sun and night time that makes the moon so bright

I know, I know this used to be your home
Living there was easy
How long, can you take it going on
Trying to make a living
It’s a killing, lost in the city

Too Easy to be Blue
Well I saw you look so happy moving into your new home,
You always dreamed of living right next door to Mr. and Mrs. Jones
You got everything you wanted
At least you thought that you do
‘Till you saw that three car garage and you only have two
Well you’re always missing something it’s too easy to be blue

From the first time it surprised you
You knew that it was right
You never felt so sure about anything ever in your life
Now you’ve got rings on your finger, you swore to always be true
Now you’re looking for a problem cause there’s nothing left to do
Well you always will find something it’s too easy to be blue

When you were six years old you took the wrong school bus home
Well your mother in her past life had some problems of her own
You spend your spare time wondering why this happened to you
If you dig a little further back there must be some excuse
Well it’s hard to count the reasons it’s too easy to be blue
It’s too easy, it’s too easy to be blue
It’s so easy, it’s too easy to be blue

If You Let Her
Hello I’m lost
The line I’ve crossed
I’ve been away too long
Well my heart ain’t broke
Just shattered from the cold
Nothing to keep it warm
People talk about me when I leave
And my whole life is wasted on me

CHORUS
Rock and roll can save your soul if you let her
But I can’t take her home, she don’t get along with my mother
Honky tonk’s gonna change my luck for the better
But she won’t stay, I wonder my life away tryin to get her

I look like you don’t want to be my friend
And they don’t want me back anywhere I’ve been
I went to the well, put my nickel in
And I wished that I wasn’t too lost to win

I don’t live free cause my life it’s cheap
I left my true love high
I paid the price I paid it twice
I can’t go back alive
And my back flat broken with a heavy load and
The ground looks down at me living so low

CHORUS

Letter
I read it over and over,
Wrote everything I had to say,
And under the assumption that maybe you could feel something,
I sent that letter away,
And dreaming has never been so easy,
Waiting has never been so hard,
It arrived a little late, but your answer finally came
When it didn’t come at all

CHORUS
Now I wish I sent that love letter to the devil himself,
He might even write me back some cold day in hell,
I wish I sent that love letter anywhere else
But to you, but to you

Lying here early in the morning,
On a pillow of regret,
Cursing the slow tick of time,
I can’t get far enough away, can’t take it back,
So, questions are weighing on my body,
Wishing my heart would turn to stone,
I almost wrote another letter,
But after this what’s the use to drag it on,

CHORUS

What becomes of letters left unanswered,
Do they turn on their holder some day,
And if the prettier the words, the uglier the curse,
Then I’m sorry, for what’s coming your way,
Once the years have left you faded,
And time has layed you low
Don’t bother sending me a message,
For my heart has changed addresses
When you broke it, so many years ago,

CHORUS

Boots and Tattoos
Boots and Tattoos, some things are hard to loose
Between the two of us you could say we have a few
I wanna get so close that we don’t know whose is who
All I see is boots, tattoos and you

Boots and tattoos, I’m holdin’ on to you
If I keep anything in this whole world
Boots, tattoos, and you

I put my bets on you, until my money’s blown
If I could make it rain, then I’d soak you to the bone
If it rained an ocean, then I’d ask for two
You know I dry ‘em up and spend it all on you

Spend it all on you
Boots and Tattoos
If I make anything in this whole world
Spend it all on you

Wanna say I do the rest is up to you
We can get some rings or just some new boots and tattoos
I say ‘em once, I said it two
I wanna say I do and the rest is up to you

Rest is up to you
I wanna say I do
If I do anything in this whole world
The rest is up to you
Boots and tattoos
Holdin’ on to you
If I keep anything in this whole world
Boots, tattoos and you

See You Again
I’ve come a long long way and you’ve seen me look better I know
My eyes are a little tired, you know my heart’s a little warn
But my spirits are bright
Drove a century through sixty nights and it sure feels right
To see you again

I’m don’t mind leaving places it’s you I miss as I go
And if I had my way, I could bring you along
Down the road a few miles
Or I could try to stay a while cause it makes me smile
To see you again

To ask where I’m from it’s like asking the last place I’ve been
I’ve left more good homes than you might’ve ever seen
But of the places I go
And the many faces I have known it feels like home
To see you again

Well it’s not like you don’t know yet
That I’m not always good at warning ahead
I should write so many times
But my days go so quickly I’m always behind

I’m getting older still no easier saying goodbye
And hellos after far too long are even harder sometimes
But we can’t go wrong
It’s good to see your going strong
I’ll try not to take so goddamn long,
To see you again

Captain Joe
Come all gather round
For a story I’ll share
Take it as a warnin,
Afford the time to spare
It tells of a tale
From the seas that I know
Of thirteen men and the fate of Captain Joe

I’ve never cared
To call a captain my friend
But our ships never sank
Under anyone’s command
Our bellies were full
We’d been drinking to long
We slept as they warned us Captain Joe was evil’s son

And he sang oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Every man will get all that he’s owed,

His plans undisclosed
We set away from shore
To profit from our ship
In ways never done before
We signed our contracts
As Captain Joe said
Work a while for me and I’ll get you out of debt

We sang oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Every man will get all that he’s owed

We worked as the captain
Entertained guests
They dealt in destruction
Oil and theft
Our once proud ship
It’s name dragged through the mud
Black gold lined their pockets in exchange for our blood

And they said oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Every man will get all that he’s owed

Our contract was done
After five years at sea
And all of our profits
Had passed right under me
A dollar he stole
Was a dollar he earned
A penny given back to us was money burned

And we cried oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Every man will get all he’s owed

Well thirteen men
Gathered round the cast to vote
They orderd the Captain
To head for the shore
But the Captain he laughed
Says you must’ve been asleep
You owe four more years of your sweat and blood to me

Laughing oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Every man will get all that he’s owed

We opened up the hatch
To the belly of the boat
He squealed as he sank
To the darkness below
We said take all your profits
If that’s all that you need
And we left him drinking oil
With only money to eat

And we sang oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Every man will get all that he’s owed
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

Classic Car
My grandpa was a classic car
As steady an engine as there are
He worked every day up until the graveyard
My grandpa was a classic car

He used to build bridges in the war
He was there on the Normandy shore
Backed his car right through his own garage door but
He used to build bridges in the war

CHORUS
Grandpa was a classic car
Though I never got to know him so well
Just some stories I heard
Some things that I saw
When he was getting old I was too young to tell

We’d go fishing in his old tin can
He never had an engine that ran
Played tricks on the line any chance that he had
Fishing in his old tin can

Well my grandpa didn’t move to fast
Cause a limp from the war that he had
He liked to win at cards and he growled when he laughed
My grandpa didn’t move too fast

CHORUS

Work
Work, work, work till the work is done
When I rise in the morning with the rising sun
I’m gonna work ‘till the work is done

If someone asks what this work’s about
Work till the work is done
Not punchin in or punchin out
Work till the work is done
The hour’s late but there’s still time
Work till the work is done
It may be broken but it’s still mine
Work till the work is done

CHORUS

If you want to lend a hand
Work till the work is done
If you don’t you’ll wish you had
Work ‘till the work is done
Brothers and sisters strangers too
Work ‘till the work is done
You can bet I’ll be with my own love true
Work ‘till the work is done

CHORUS

If some folks choose to work for them
Work ‘till the work is done
We’re just gonna work harder then
Gonna work ‘till the work is done
We won’t stop when they tell us to
Work ‘till the work is done
If we don’t they’re bound to lose
Work ‘till the work is done

CHORUS x2

Out In Time
Always make it out in time
Always make it out in time
Always in time
Hallelujah by and by
Always make it out in time

Well she asked me to stay the night
I was young and I didn’t know why
She said no need to get out, you can come right inside
It was a good idea at the time

CHORUS

Well I got drunk with a lady one night
You know I asked her to be my bride
And now she’s standing at the alter all dressed in white
I’ll have to tell her that I changed my mind

CHORUS

Well I’ve never done my taxes on time
But they’re not gonna take me alive
Just before they arrest me and read me my rights
God will reach down and turn me into light

CHORUS

Well when it’s my time to die
I’ll run right away from this life
I just want to leave all my troubles behind
I hope I make it out in time
