Track Name: Break Away Speed
“BREAK AWAY SPEED”

SHE COULD HAVE MADE A RIVER BUT SHE HAD TO MAKE RAIN
AND ONCE IT STARTED FALLING IT WAS NEVER THE SAME
40 DAYS RUNNING AND 40 NIGHTS LONG
WATER KEPT ON COMING TILL THE VALLEYS WERE GONE...GONE

SHE SAID IT'S ALRIGHT
TOOK ME WHERE SHE LEFT ME
TURNED AROUND WENT AWAY BREAKAWAY SPEED
NEVER LOOKED BACK SAID SHE WON'T FORGET ME
TURNED AROUND WENT AWAY BREAKAWAY SPEED...BREAKAWAY SPEED

I WOULD HAVE COME RUNNING BUT I COULDN'T KEEP UP
SHE COUNTED ALL HER BLESSINGS AND THERE WASN'T ENOUGH
THEY WERE HIDING IN THE SHADOWS WHERE IT'S NEVER QUITE CLEAR
SHE WANTS SOMETHING BETTER THAT SHE COULDN'T FIND HERE...FIND HERE

SHE SAID IT'S ALRIGHT
TOOK ME WHERE SHE LEFT ME
TURNED AROUND WENT AWAY BREAKAWAY SPEED
NEVER LOOKED BACK SAID SHE WON'T FORGET ME
TURNED AROUND WENT AWAY BREAKAWAY SPEED...BREAKAWAY SPEED

I THINK OF HER WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN
AND FALLS BEHIND THE EDGE OF TOWN

SHE SAID IT'S ALRIGHT
TOOK ME WHERE SHE LEFT ME
TURNED AROUND WENT AWAY BREAKAWAY SPEED
NEVER LOOKED BACK SAID SHE WON'T FORGET ME
TURNED AROUND WENT AWAY BREAKAWAY SPEED...BREAKAWAY SPEED

BREAKAWAY SPEED
BREAKAWAY SPEED
Track Name: Battle Scar
BATTLE SCAR

I FELL JUST LIKE A SHOOTING STAR
WHY’D YOU GO AND BREAK MY HEART
YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I CARED FOR YOU
NOW I’M NOTHING BUT A LOVE THAT YOU ONCE KNEW

SO I STUMBLE DOWN THE ROAD LIKE A KICKED UP CAN
WITH A BATTLE SCAR FOR EVERYWHERE I’VE BEEN
NEVER QUITE SURE WHERE I’M HEADED TO
NOTHING BUT A LOVE THAT YOU ONCE KNEW

I FELL JUST LIKE A DROP OF RAIN
CAUGHT SMILING IN THE EYE OF A HURRICANE
FELL FOR THE CHARM OF A THUNDER CLOUD
IT’S EASY WHEN YOU’RE THAT HIGH OFF THE GROUND

NOW I STUMBLE DOWN THE ROAD LIKE A KICKED UP CAN
WITH A BATTLE SCAR FOR EVERYWHERE I’VE BEEN
NEVER QUITE SURE WHERE I’M HEADED TO
I’M NOTHING BUT A LOVE THAT YOU ONCE KNEW

EVERY TIME I HAD A CHANCE
TO GRAB YOUR HAND FOR THE MIDNIGHT DANCE
I WON’T FORGET, NO I WON’T FORGET
NOTHING LEFT BUT MY SHADOW NOW
TO LEAD THE WAY BUT SOMEHOW
I DON’T FORGET, NO I DON’T FORGET

I FELL JUST LIKE AN OLD OAK TREE
NEVER SAW THE GROUND SLIP UNDER ME
I THOUGHT THE WISE WOULD HAVE A CLUE
BUT THE TALLER I GOT THE LESS I KNEW

SO I STUMBLE DOWN THE ROAD LIKE A KICKED UP CAN
WITH A BATTLE SCAR FOR EVERYWHERE I’VE BEEN
NEVER QUITE SURE WHERE I’M HEADED TO
NOTHING BUT A LOVE THAT YOU ONCE KNEW
NO I’M NOTHING BUT A LOVE THAT YOU ONCE KNEW
Track Name: They Don't Make 'Em Like You Anymore
THEY DON’T MAKE ‘EM LIKE YOU ANYMORE

THERE’S GIVERS TAKERS TWO OF A KIND JUST MAKING THERE CASE
AIN'T TAKING YOUR PLACE
AIN'T RUNNING YOUR RACE
THERE'S WINNING LOSING EVEN SOMETIMES THEY'RE ON AND THE SAME
JUST ANOTHER CATS GAME
THEY AIN’T FEELING YOUR PAIN

I CALL YOU IN THE MIDDLE OF THE AFTERNOON LIKE I'M TELLING NO LIES
JUST TO TAKE IT DOWN EASY
BUT ALL TOO SOON I'M SURE TO REALIZE
THERE'S TIME AND AGAIN FOREVER THEY TRY WHAT ARE THEY GONNA DO?
THEY DON'T MAKE EM LIKE YOU
THEY DON'T MAKE EM LIKE YOU ANYMORE

THERE'S A FLICKERING WIND MAKING ITS PACES ROUND MY FRONT DOOR
IT AIN'T KEEPING NO SCORE
JUST A CARRYING ON
THERE'S A BLUE DOOR LIGHT SPENDING THE NIGHT ON THE NEIGHBORS FRONT PORCH
GUESS I'M PASSING MY TORCH
AIN'T KEEPING NO SCORE

JUST COUNTING THE RAINDROPS CRASHING ON A PUDDLE BABY WHO NEEDS SLEEP
THINKING ONLY OF ANYONE OTHER THAN WHOEVER I MEET
THERE'S TIME AND AGAIN FOREVER THEY TRY WHAT ARE THEY GONNA DO?
THEY DON'T MAKE EM LIKE YOU
THEY DON'T MAKE EM LIKE YOU ANYMORE
Track Name: Pocket Change
POCKET CHANGE

WHERE’S MY STUDEBAKER I’M NOBODY’S POCKET CHANGE
TO JINGLE WHEN YOU WANT TO THROW AROUND SOME CARD GAME
WITH THE PENCILS AND OLD RECEIPTS YOU HAD TO KEEP TO SAVE YOUR ASS
WHERE’S MY STUDEBAKER I’M NOBODY’S POCKET CHANGE
I DON’T WANT TO LOVE YOU ANYMORE

WHERE’S MY HORSE AND CARRIAGE I’M GOING TO GET MY HEAD ON TRACK
HIT THE HILLS, NO MORE THINKING GRAVITY, HOUR GLASS
AND THE POSTERS AT THE PICTURE SHOW DON’T THEY HAVE IT ALL
WHERE’S MY STUDEBAKER I’M NOBODY’S POCKET CHANGE
I DON’T WANT TO LOVE YOU ANYMORE

IF YOU’RE EVER GOING TO LEAVE ME
IF YOU’RE EVER GOING TO LEAVE ME NOW
IF YOU’RE EVER GOING TO LEAVE ME
IF YOU’RE EVER GOING TO LEAVE ME NOW
I DON’T WANT TO LOVE YOU ANYHOW

AND IF YOU’RE EVER GOING TO LEAVE ME
AND IF YOU’RE EVER GOING TO LEAVE ME NOW
AND IF YOU’RE EVER GOING TO LEAVE ME
AND IF YOU’RE EVER GOING TO LEAVE ME NOW
I DON’T WANT TO LOVE YOU ANYHOW

WHERE’S MY STUDEBAKER I’M NOBODY’S POCKET CHANGE
TO FLIP UP IN THE AIR WHEN YOU CAN’T DECIDE JUST WHO TO BLAME
IT’S A LONG ROAD PUT ME ON IT WHO DO YOU THINK YOU’RE TALKING TO
WHERE’S MY STUDEBAKER I’M NOBODY’S POCKET CHANGE
I DON’T WANT TO LOVE YOU ANYMORE
I DON’T WANT TO LOVE YOU ANYMORE
I DON’T WANT TO LOVE YOU ANYMORE
Track Name: The Road I'm On
THE ROAD I’M ON

SHE LEFT ONE DAY PUSH COME TO SHOVE
IT HIT ME LIKE A HAND WITH A HEAVY GLOVE
SHE GREW TIRED OF PAYING THE PRICE OF MY LOVE
SOMETHING ‘BOUT THE ROAD I’M ON

WELL IT TOOK HER A WHILE BUT SHE TOOK IT TO ME
SHE HEADED OUT WEST WITH THE REDWOOD TREE
HOPING TO FIND SOMEONE WHO WON’T BE
TAKING TO THE ROAD I’M ON

OH I’M NOT SURE WHERE IT’S TAKING ME NOW
TIRED OF BEING TOLD THAT IT’S NOWHERE BOUND
NOTHING QUITE AS SWEET AS THE SOUND
OF THE SAME OLD SONG

NOTHING BEHIND ME BUT THE PATH THAT I TOOK
NOTHING ON MY MIND BUT HER ONE LAST LOOK
NOTHING DOWN BELOW ME FOR TAPPING MY FOOT
NOTHING BUT THE ROAD I’M ON

OH WEST VIRGINIA DON’T BE TAKING MY HAND
A STEADY GIRL NEVER HELPED ME FIND DRY LAND
JUST A BROKEN HEART THE TEARS AND THE SAND
TOOK ME TO THE ROAD I’M ON

GUESS I’LL FIND MY WAY COME HELL OR HIGH NOON
NOT THAT MY WAYS ARE GONNA CHANGE MUCH SOON
GONNA CURSE THE GROUND AND HOWL AT THE MOON
AND KEEP IT AT THE ROAD I’M ON

OH NOT SURE WHERE IT’S TAKING ME NOW
TIRED OF BEING TOLD THAT IT’S NOWHERE BOUND
NOTHING QUITE AS SWEET AS THE SOUND
OF THE SAME OLD SONG

NOTHING BEHIND ME BUT THE PATH THAT I TOOK
NOTHING ON MY MIND BUT HER ONE LAST LOOK
NOTHING DOWN BELOW ME FOR TAPPING MY FOOT
NOTHING BUT THE ROAD I’M ON

NOTHING BEHIND ME BUT THAT PATH THAT I TOOK
NOTHING BUT THE ROAD I’M ON
Track Name: Hard Time Tennessee
HARD TIME TENNESSEE

I WANNA TALK LIKE AN AUCTIONEER
WHERE NO HESITATION COMES TO ME
WISH I HAD ALL THE ANSWERS MY DEAR
I WANT YOU LIKING WHAT YOU SEE
I WANNA DREAM LIKE THE GIRL AT THE CHURCH THROWING THE PETALS AT THE FLOOR
AIN'T NOTHIN LIKE THE FEELING WHEN YOUR FEELING IT FIRST
BUT I DON'T FEEL IT ANYMORE
I WANNA LIVE IN AN OLD CARTOON
WEAR THE SAME THING EVERY DAY
I WANNA FLY YOU STRAIGHT TO THE MOON
NOTHING GETTING IN OUR WAY
I WANNA ROLL WHERE THE STOCK CAR STEERS ME
NO ONE WOULD BEAT ME DOWN THE TRACK
I WANNA TALK LIKE AN AUCTIONEER
NO HESITATION COMING BACK

I WANNA LOVE YOU BUT DON'T KNOW HOW
I WANNA MAKE IT ALRIGHT
BUT DON'T WORRY EASY NOW US STRAY DOGS WE DON'T BITE
IT DON'T MATTER WHAT YOU SAY TO ME OR WRITE ON YOUR WELCOME MAT
IT'S HARD TIME TENNESSEE
AIN'T NOTHING MORE

WISH I COULD BE LIKE THE MAGIC MAN
AND TAKE WHAT I WANTED FROM THE AIR
AND GIVE IT STRAIGHT TO YOU JUST AS FAST AS I CAN
LEAVING NOTHING THERE TO SPARE
I WANNA FLY LIKE THE BUMBLE BEE
WHIZZING & A BUZZING ON THE VINE
I WANNA SEE WHAT THE BLIND MAN SEES
WHEN HE PAINTS A PICTURE IN HIS MIND
Track Name: Sweet Marie
SWEET MARIE

OH SWEET MARIE
THERE'S DIAMONDS IN THEM MINES
AND I LONG TO GIVE YOUR TALKING TO
WHEN THE HEAVY HITS YOUR EYES

STEADY WAS THE NIGHT
AND THE AIR IT GAVE NO RAIN
MY WORK IS FAR DOWN IN THE GROUND
AND MY ATTENTION FELT NO PAIN

ARE THE GIRLS DRESSED IN RED
COULD YOU SELL THE THINGS THEY SAY
OR TELL ME IS IT PINK INSTEAD
NOW THAT WINTERS GONE AWAY... NOW THAT WINTERS GONE AWAY

YOU WERE STANDING IN YOUR GOWN
WITH A TANGLE IN YOUR HAIR
A SOFT WAVE A TREMBLED FROWN
BEFORE I LEFT YOU THERE

SOON THE STARS WILL FADE
AND THE SUN WON'T LET YOU DOWN
A SURE AS TEARS FALL FROM YOUR FACE
IT'S SURE TO COME BACK AROUND... SURE TO COME BACK AROUND

OH SWEET MARIE
THERE'S DIAMONDS IN THEM MINES
AND I LONG TO GIVE YOUR TALKING TO
WHEN THE HEAVY HITS YOUR EYES

WHEN THE HEAVY HITS YOUR EYES
WHEN THE HEAVY HITS YOUR EYES
Track Name: Tall Grass
TALL GRASS

WON'T YOU COME WITH ME NOW WON'T YOU LET ME IN?
I KNOW THEY RAISED YOU BETTER
YOU KNOW I CAN'T BEGIN
TAKING BACK MY CHOICES
TAKING BACK WHAT EVERYBODY KNOWS FOR SURE
I KNOW THEY RAISED YOU BETTER BUT CAN'T YOU HEAR ME KNOCKING ON YOUR DOOR

IF YOU CAN'T SEE ME NOW I GUESS I CAN GO
AND I'LL WAIT FOR YOU WHERE THE TALL GRASS GROWS

SPENT ALL SUMMER WALKING THE PAVEMENT IN THIS TOWN
KEEPING STEADY RHYTHM WITH THE WORDS YOU WOUND THROUGH MY HEAD WOUND SO TIGHTLY HERE THEY COME EVERYBODY KNOWS FOR SURE
KEEPING STEADY RHYTHM CAN'T YOU HEAR ME KNOCK UPON YOUR DOOR

I POSE YOU NO DANGER EVEN THOUGH THE STORIES FLY
THEY PAINTED ME A STRANGER NOW
PAINTED ME A STRANGER NOW

YOU GOT PLENTY REASON TO PAY NO MIND TO ME
BUT FOR EVERY LAW I'VE BROKEN THERE'S A HUNDRED WAYS I SEE YOU DANCING WITH ME GENTLY ROUND AND ROUND EVERYBODY KNOWS FOR SURE
FOR EVERY LAW I'VE BROKEN THERE'S A HUNDRED TIMES I'VE KNOCKED UPON YOUR DOOR
Track Name: Colorado
COLORADO

COLORADO IS A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
COLORADO IS A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
I’M GONNA GO, JUST ONE MORE TIME
WHAT’S YOURS IS YOURS, WHAT’S MINE IS MINE
BUT FOR THEM ITS GONNA BE A HEAVY PRICE TO PAY

I GOT THIS HORSE DOWN IN OLD MEXICO
I GOT THIS HORSE DOWN IN OLD MEXICO
THROUGH THE DARKNESS IN HER EYES SHE CAN SEE IT’S HER LAST RIDE
CAUSE SHE’S TOO OLD AND SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE’S IN FOR

MY MOMMA HELD A BABY IN HER ARMS
MY MOMMA HELD A BABY IN HER ARMS
BUT THE BABY GREW UP MEAN
BY THE TIME A MAN TRIED TO ROB HER CLEAN
SO HE SHOT HIM DEAD IN THE DUSTY HILLS OF ARKANSAS

NOW THE WINDS GETTING COLDER BY THE DAY
NOW THE WINDS GETTING COLDER BY THE DAY
PRETTY SOON IT WILL BLOW WITH SPEED
LOOKING TO TAKE WHAT’S LEFT OF ME
BUT MY PEACE OF MIND IS GONNA HELP THE BLOOD FLOW THROUGH MY VEINS

NOW I HAVEN’T SHOT A MAN SINCE EIGHTY-FIVE
NOW I HAVEN’T SHOT A MAN SINCE EIGHTY-FIVE
I SHOT HIM FROM THE BUCKLE ON HIS BOOT
TO THE SWEAT ON HIS FRONT TOOTH
TO HIS STRAW HAT WITH NOTHING LEFT INSIDE.

MY SWEETIE HOLDS A BABY IN HER ARMS
MY SWEETIE HOLDS A BABY IN HER ARMS
SHE GOT ANOTHER ON THE WAY
NEVER TOOK TO MIND WHAT HER DADDY SAID
NOW SHE KNEELS TO PRAY FOR DADDY TO MAKE IT HOME ALIVE

COLORADO IS A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
COLORADO IS A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
GONNA GO JUST ONE MORE TIME
WHAT’S YOURS IS YOURS, WHAT’S MINE IS MINE
BUT FOR THEM IT’S GONNA BE A HEAVY PRICE TO PAY
Track Name: Bottle Into Gold
BOTTLE INTO GOLD

TELL ME, TELL ME THEY’VE GOT THE WRONG MAN
AND THEY DEALT ME SOMEBODY ELSE’S HAND
I WAS SITTING RIGHT HERE FIVE YEARS AGO
TELL ME THAT IT WON’T BE FIVE YEARS MORE
I ONCE LOOKED EVERYONE IN THE EYE
HAD MY FEET ON THE FLOOR AND MY HEAD IN THE SKY
I’D LISTEN WHEN THEY SPOKE NOW I COULD CARE LESS
WHEN THEY WHISPER HOW I’M SUCH A MESS

AND I GOT NOWHERE TO RUN
BUT THE NIGHT HAS JUST BEGUN
I KNOW IT’S GOING TO END SOMEWHERE
LAY MY HEAD IN SOME STRANGE PLACE
SAME LOOK UPON MY FACE
ANOTHER WASTED NIGHT ALONE
TRYING TO TURN THIS BOTTLE INTO GOLD

TELL ME, TELL ME YOU’RE A DRIFTER TOO
CAUSE IT WOULD EASE MY MIND IF YOU WORE THE SAME SHOES
CAUSE YOU WOULD KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO JUST SIT HERE
AND WATCH ‘EM ALL FLY BY YEAR AFTER YEAR

AND I GOT NOWHERE TO RUN
BUT THE NIGHT HAS JUST BEGUN
I KNOW IT’S GOING TO END SOMEWHERE
LAY MY HEAD IN SOME STRANGE PLACE
SAME LOOK UPON MY FACE
ANOTHER WASTED NIGHT ALONE
TRYING TO TURN THIS BOTTLE INTO GOLD

AND I GOT NOWHERE TO RUN
BUT THE NIGHT HAS JUST BEGUN
I KNOW IT’S GOING TO END SOMEWHERE
LAY MY HEAD IN SOME STRANGE PLACE
SAME LOOK UPON MY FACE
ANOTHER WASTED NIGHT ALONE
TRYING TO TURN THIS BOTTLE INTO GOLD

PLEASE GIVE ME SOMETHING MORE TO HOLD
TURN THIS BOTTLE INTO GOLD
Track Name: Smiles At The Door
SMILES AT THE DOOR

I’VE ONLY KNOWN YOU SINCE THE WAITER SAID HI
SINCE THE CORK LEFT THE BOTTLE AND THE MOON LIT THE SKY
SINCE THE LOUD CONVERSATION OF THE FRIENDS WE BOTH KNOW
BLEW THE DUST OFF THE TABLE AND KEPT MY EYES ON YOU

I CAN’T HELP BUT THINK THAT I KNOW YOU WELL
EVEN THOUGH I JUST MET YOU AS FAR AS I CAN TELL
IT FEELS LIKE I’VE SEEN WHAT’S BEHIND YOUR WALLS
AND SEEN WHAT’S BEHIND YOUR CURTAINS

STAIRWAYS AND PICTURES THE PATTERNS YOU CHOSE
HARDWOOD IN THE BASEMENT THAT SQUEAKS ON YOUR TOES
CLOCKS ON THE MANTLE, CRACKS IN THE FLOOR
TEARS ON YOUR PILLOW AND SMILES AT THE DOOR
TEARS ON YOUR PILLOW AND SMILES AT THE DOOR

I GUESS EVERYONE ELSE WENT ON WITH THEIR PLANS
MAYBE SOME CAUGHT A MOVIE OR THEIR FAVORITE BAND
LEFT US WITH THE STORIES I ALREADY SEE
AND THE WINE SLOWLY GUIDING YOUR HEART TO YOUR SLEEVE
AND THE WINE SLOWLY GUIDING YOUR HEART TO YOUR SLEEVE

STAIRWAYS AND PICTURES THE PATTERNS YOU CHOSE
VASE ON THE TABLE WITH ONE SINGLE ROSE
FLAME IN THE CANDLE TO WEATHER THE STORM
TEARS ON YOUR PILLOW AND SMILES AT THE DOOR
TEARS ON YOUR PILLOW AND SMILES AT THE DOOR

STAIRWAYS AND PICTURES THE PATTERNS YOU CHOSE
HARDWOOD IN THE BASEMENT, THAT SQUEAKS ON YOUR TOES
THE CLOCK ON THE MANTLE, CRACKS IN THE FLOOR
TEARS ON YOUR PILLOW AND SMILES AT THE DOOR
I DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU’VE BEEN BUT I’VE BEEN THERE BEFORE
TEARS ON YOUR PILLOW AND SMILES AT THE DOOR


DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU’VE BEEN BUT I’VE BEEN THERE BEFORE
TEARS ON YOUR PILLOW AND SMILES AT THE DOOR
TEARS ON YOUR PILLOW AND SMILES AT THE DOOR
