False True Love

Come in, come in, you old true love
Can't you chat for a while with me?
For it's been three quarters
Of a long year or more
Since I spoke one word to thee
 
Now I shan't come in nor won't sit down
For I don't have a moment's time
And since you are now engaged
With another true love
Then your heart is no longer mine
 
But when you were mine, my own true love
And your head lay upon my breast
You could make me believe
All by the falling of your arm
That the sun rose up in the west
 
Now there's many the star shall jingle in the west
And there's many the leaf far below
And there's many the damn
That shall light upon a man
For treating a poor girl so
 
Now I wish to the Lord I'd never been born
Or had died when I was young
Then I never would have mourned
For my own true love
Nor have courted no other one
 

Count on Christmas

There's something stirring
Something crackling like the firewood
A certain spirit that has lightened up the neighborhood
I think it's time for the timeless time of the year
Time of the year
You're bundled up
Got a blizzard coming on the way
The family fighting like they do 'Cause it's the holidays And
every memory you're holding in your
heart is alive once more, right here
 
Feels like you're a kid again
Making you remember when life was good
Just watching the snow fall down
 
Doesn't matter if the year's got you feeling down
Just remember in December what is coming 'round
And you'll find the feeling that you always found
You can count on Christmas, count on Christmas
Coming back home to the home address
Something burning in the kitchen with the house a mess
And this year is promising nothing less
You can count on Christmas, count on Christmas
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Count on Christmas, count on Christmas
 
We got a Christmas song Sing-a-long around
the tree Hit the eggnog flow until we all tipsy
There's another movie marathon on TV
Which one could it be?
But with all of the presents, all of the gifts
It's really about who you're sharing them with
And just for Christmas Eve
The world's the way it used to be
 
Doesn't matter if the year's got you feeling down
Just remember in December what is coming 'round
And you'll find the feeling that you always found
You can count on Christmas, count on Christmas
Coming back home to the home address
Something burning in the kitchen with the house a mess
And this year is promising nothing less
You can count on Christmas, count on Christmas
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Count on Christmas, count on Christmas
 
Doesn't matter if the year's got you feeling down
Just remember in December what is coming 'round
And you'll find the feeling that you always found
You can count on Christmas, count on Christmas
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, woah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You can count on Christmas, count on Christmas
 

Just as the Tide Was A-Flowing

One morning in the month of May
When all birds were singing
I saw a lovely lady stray
Across the fields at break of day
And softly sang a roundelay
The tide flows in, the tide flows out
Twice every day returning
 
A sailor's wife at home must bide
She halted, heavily she sighed
“He parted from me, me a bride
Just as the tide was a-flowing'
 
The tide flows in, the tide flows out
Twice every day returning
 
The tide flows in, the tide flows out
Twice every day returning
 

Angel Child

Won't you take me
Won't you take me to the edge of night and make me
Won't you make me walk into the light
And there'll be no eyes
No eyes that see such beauty would lose their sight
And there'll be no lies
No lies that you could tell me to make things right
 
Cos I gave all my money to people and things
And the price I'm still playing for the shit that it brings
Doesn't fill me with hope for the songs that you sing
Tonight, this is your life
Angel child
 
When you find out
When you find out who you are you know you'll be free
To see your own ability
But there'll be no eyes
No eyes that see such beauty would lose their sight
And there'll be no lies
No lies that you could tell me to make things right
 
Cos I gave all my money to people and things
And the price I'm still playing for the shit that it brings
Doesn't fill me with hope for the songs that you sing
Tonight, this is your life
Angel child
Tonight, this is your life, this is your life
Angel child of mine
 
Tonight, this is your life, this is your life
Angel child
Tonight, this is your life, this is your life
Angel child of mine
Tonight, this is your life, this is your life
Angel child
Tonight, this is your life, this is your life
Angel child
 

Shadows of the Dark

Every night I live a little
But it's not the same without your smile
Every night I live a little
But the emptiness just holds me down
Every night I live a little
But I look around and try to find
Every night I live a little
But it's you I know I want so bad
 
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
Oh you stole my heart
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
In the shadows of the dark
 
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
Oh you stole my heart
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
In the shadows of the dark
 
Every night I live a little
But it's you I see on every turn
Every night I live a little
But I miss the touch of your soft skin
Every night I live a little
But my dreams; they flash before my eyes
Every night I live a little
But it's whispering that haunts my mind
 
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
Oh you stole my heart
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
In the shadows of the dark
 
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
Oh you stole my heart
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
In the shadows of the dark
 
Don't know one 'til it's gone
Searching for someone when they're right in front
Don't know one 'til it's gone
And every night I live a little
 
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
Oh you stole my heart
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
In the shadows of the dark
 
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
Oh you stole my heart
(Ah na-na, na-na-na-na)
In the shadows of the dark
 
Sorrow, sorrow, sorrow, in my head
Sorrow, sorrow, sorrow
In the shadows of the dark
 
Sorrow, sorrow, sorrow, in my head
Sorrow, sorrow, sorrow
In the shadows of the dark
 

Put Your Hand in the Hand

Put your hand in the hand
Of the man who stilled the water
 
Put your hand in the hand
Of the man who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself and
A you can look at others differently
 
By puttin' your hand in the hand
Of the man from-a Galilee
 
Every time I look into the Holy Book
I want to tremble
When I read about the part
Where a carpenter cleared the temple
For the buyers and the sellers were
No different fellas than what I profess to be
 
And it causes me shame to know
I'm not the gal that I should be
 
Put your hand in the hand
 
Mama taught me how to pray before
I reached the age of seven
 
And when I'm down on my knees that's a
When I'm close to heaven
Daddy lived his life with two kids and a wife
You do must you must do
But he showed me
Enough of what it takes to get you through

Godzilla

With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting high-tension wires down
 
Helpless people on subway trains
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them
 
He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town
 
Oh no, they say he's got to go
Go go Godzilla, yeah
Oh no, there goes Tokyo
Go go Godzilla, yeah
 
Oh no, they say he's got to go
Go go Godzilla, yeah
Oh no, there goes Tokyo
Go go Godzilla, yeah

Heart Full Of Black

You take me right up to the top of the world
Then you push me over the side
Like an addiction to a four-letter word
Victim of the Western decline
 
I made a promise by the side of the road
That I would bury my goddamn halo
 
I got a heart with a black lining
I got a heart full of black
I got a heart with a black lining
I got a heart full of black
 
I'm trying to fight it but I don't know what for
There was something holding me back
I need to fight it more than ever before
Now I'm ready for the attack
 
I'll never be like what I wanna become
As long as you got a piece of the action
 
I got a heart with a black lining
I got a heart full of black
I got a heart with a black lining
I got a heart full of black
 
Show me
Show me
Show me
Show me
Show me
Show me
Show me
Show me
 
This doesn't happen to me everyday
I was feeling freer than life
I wouldn't have it any other way
Wanna feel like this all the time
 
You like to walk along the rocks on the tracks
So I decided to take my love back
 
I got a heart with a black lining
I got a heart full of black
I got a heart with a black lining
I got a heart full of black

Carry Me Home

He's gonna get you in the end
Then he'll be your only friend
There's nothing that'll save your soul
All you need is alcohol
 
Step right up and be a man
On your knees and pray
Freedoms just another open bottle anyway
 
So one more round is all I need
Fill it up and let me be
It's getting late I should've known
Won't somebody carry me home?
 
Pick me up from my knees
Carry me home
 
We think you should know
It's time to go
No more to show
Yes it's time to go
 
6am it's closing time the barman turns the lights out
I want another round so bring it on it's my shout
 
Don't leave me sitting here
Don't take me for a ride
Freedoms just another drink
Don't leave me hangin' dry
 
Step right up and be a man
On your knees and pray
Freedoms just another open bottle anyway
 
[Chorus]
 
We think you should know
It's time to go
No more to show
Yes it's time to go
 

Girlfriend

I wanna love somebody
I hear you need somebody to love
Oh, I wanna love somebody
I hear you're looking for someone to love
 
'Cause you need to be back
In the arms of a good friend
And I need to be back
In the arms of a girlfriend
 
I didn't know nobody
And then I saw you coming my way
Oh, I didn't know nobody
And then I saw you coming my way
 
Don't you need to be back
In the arms of a good friend?
Oh, 'cause, honey, believe me
I'd sure love to call you my girlfriend
 
Alright
 
Don't you need to be back
In the arms of a good friend?
Oh, 'cause, honey, believe me

'Cause you got a good thing going, baby
You only need somebody to love
Oh, you got a good thing going
You're only looking for someone to love
 
'Cause you need to get back
In the arms of a good friend
 
And I'm never gonna set you free
No, I'm never gonna set you free
 

John The Fisherman

When he was young you'd not find him doing well in school
His mind would turn unto the waters
Always the focus of adolescent ridicule
He has no time for farmer's daughters
Alienated from the clique society
A lonely boy finds peace in fishing
His mother says 'John this is not the way life's supposed to be'
'Don't you see the life that you are missing?'
And he says
When I grow up I want to be
One of the harvesters of the sea
I think before my days are done
I want to be a fisherman
 
Now years gone by we find a man that rules the sea
He sets out on a dark May morning
To bring his catch back to this small community
He doesn't see the danger dawning
Four hours up, oh the ocean swelled and swelled
The fog rolled in it started raining
'The starboard bow.' 'Oh my God we're going down!'
They do not hear his frantic mayday
And he says
When I grow up I want to be
One of the harvesters of the sea
I think before my days are done
I want to be a fisherman
'I'll live and die a fisherman'
Calling John the Fisherman
Calling John the Fisherman
We're calling John the Fisherman
 

Psychobilly Freakout

Well, we're off, we're off, we're off!
It's, it's, it's a psychobilly freakout!
 
Well, we're off, we're off, we're off!
I'll tell you what it is! (what is it God dang it!?)
It's some kinda Texas psychobilly freakout that's what it is!
 
Well, we're off, we're off, we're off!
It's a psychobilly freakout!
 

Rock This Town

Well, my baby and me went out late Saturday night
I had my hair piled high and my baby just looked so right
Well-ell, pick you up at ten, gotta have you home at two
Mama don't know what I got in store for you
But that's all right, 'cause we're looking as cool as can be
 
Well, we found a little place that really didn't look half bad
I had a whiskey on the rocks, and changed half a dollar for the jukebox
Well-ell, I put a quarter right into that can, but all they played was disco, man
Come on, baby, baby, let's get out of here right away
 
We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out
We're gonna rock this town
Make 'em scream and shout
Let's rock, rock, rock, man, rock
We're gonna rock till we pop
We're gonna rock till we drop
We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out
(Rock it, rock right in!)
 
(Whoa!)
(Whoo!)
(Oh my god)
Whoo!
 
Well, we're having a ball just a-bopping on the big dance floor
Well, there's a real square cat, he looks a 1974
Well-ell, he looked at me once, he looked at me twice
Look at me again and there's a-gonna be fight
We're gonna rock this town
We're gonna rip this place apart
 
We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out
We're gonna rock this town
Make 'em scream and shout
Let's rock, rock, rock, man, rock
We're gonna rock till we pop
We're gonna rock till we drop
We're gonna rock this town
Rock this place apart
 
We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out

Make 'em scream and shout
Let's rock, rock, rock, man, rock
We're gonna rock till we pop
We're gonna rock till we drop
We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out
 
We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out
We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out
Whoo!
 

Salvation

Come on baby won't you show me what you got
I want your salvation
 
there's a neighborhood called blackhawk
where all the rich people hide
I was down on my luck working for the salvation army
The shelter is where i reside
Everyday we drive into blackhawk
and we pick up the offerings
Microwave, refrigerator for the suffering
 
Come on baby won't you show me what you got
I want your salvation
 
I can't believe these people live like kings
Hidden estates and diamond rings
I'm a rat out on a mission
I'm in your front yard under suspicion
 
Come on baby won't you show me what you got
I want your salvation
 

Search and Destroy

I'm a street walking cheetah
with a heart full of napalm
I'm a runaway son of the nuclear A-bomb
I am a world's forgotten boy
The one who searches and destroys
Honey gotta help me please
Somebody gotta save my soul
Baby detonates for me
Look out honey, 'cause I'm using technology!
Ain't got time to make no apology
Soul radiation in the dead of night
Love in the middle of a fire fight
Honey gotta strike me blind
Somebody gotta save my soul
Baby penetrates my mind
And I'm the world's forgotten boy
The one who's searchin', searchin' to destroy
And honey I'm the world's forgotten boy
The one who's searchin', searchin' to destroy
Forgotten boy, forgotten boy
Forgotten boy said
hey forgotten boy
 

Tattooed Love Boys

The mid-twenty joys, around a heart that's black and blue
The tattooed love boys, I tore my knees up getting to you
Cause I needed to find out what the thing was for been reading
But man the time came to explore
 
I went ape wire, cause I thought
Like I'd like it, little tease, but I didn't mean it
But you mess with the goods doll
Honey you gotta pay
 
A good time was guaranteed for one and all
The tattoos did target practice in the hall
While waiting for their number to get called out
I, I, I, I found out what the wait was about
 
I was a good time, yeah, I got pretty good
At changing tyres, upstairs bro
I shot my mouth off
And you showed me what that hole was for
 
Now I see you all impressed and half undressed
You got paint stick all over the scars and lumps and bumps
Tattooed love boys have got you where I used to lay
Well ha ha and too bad, but you know what they say
 
Stop snivellin'
You're gonna make some plastic surgeon a rich man
Oh, but the prestige and the glory
Another human interest story, you are that

Where Evil Grows

I like the way you smile at me
I felt the heat that enveloped me
And what I saw I liked to see
I never knew where evil grew
 
I should have steered away from you
My friend told me to keep clear of you
But something drew me near to you
I never knew where evil grew
 
Evil grows in the dark
Where the sun it never shines
Evil grows in cracks and holes
And lives in people's minds
 
Evil grew, it's part of you
And now it seems to be
That every time I look at you
Evil grows in me
 
If I could build a wall around you
I could control the thing that you do
But I couldn't kill the will within you
And it never shows
The place where evil grows
 
Evil grows in the dark
Where the sun it never shines
Evil grows in cracks and holes
And lives in people's minds
 
Evil grew, it's part of you
And now it seems to be
That every time I look at you
Evil grows in me
 

4-Day Weekend

I don't care much for tradition
And I know you'll be leaving one day
I can't promise that I'll ever be the one
But if you'll love me till Monday
 
Let's Seran Wrap for the weekend
And see who comes up for air first
We can go and break some windows
And run and run until our chests were fit to burst
 
Forget we ever said the words
The future is dead, that's what you said
It's all in your head. you see, not mine
I'm fine, I'm alive, I've arrived
 
We thought we could make a difference
And be remembered when the Pyramids are dust
But we've had to learn that these bridges that we build
Can be as fragile as a loved one's trust
 
The future is dead, that's what you said
It's all in your head, you see, not mine
I'm fine, I'm alive, I've arrived
 
Here comes my everything
This is my everything
There goes my everything
Bye bye my love
 
The future is dead, that's what you said
It's all in your head, you see, not mine
I'm fine, I'm alive, I've arrived
 
The future is dead, that's what you said
It's all in your head, you see, not mine
I'm fine, I'm alive, I've arrived
 
Let's forget about the questions
We've been dragging round for years
Let's clear this smokey air between us
Then say goodbye, and shed no tears
 

The Wonder Of it All

There's this place we're gonna ride
Up where the rimrod meets the night
We'll go hand in hand
Ridin' through the purple star light
And the coyote on the wind
Sends his lonely lover's call
We'll hold each other close
In the wonder of it all
 
The golden west has come and gone
Right before our very eyes
But they will never count the stars
And they will never fence the skies
All i know is i love you
And i won't let you fall
We're rollin' down the milky way
 
Into the wonder of it all
 
Bridge:
 
Life gets harder every day
And sometimes it seems the dream almost dies
But love will find a way
It will show us the way through the canyons of the stars
And the endless midnight sky
Come on girl we're gonna ride
Where the rimrod meets the night
We'll go hand in hand
Ridin' through the purple starlight
And the coyote on the wind
Sends his lonely lover's call
We'll hold each other close
In the wonder of it all
We'll hold each other close
In the wonder of it all
 

Magpie

Magpie
You're an early riser
Magpie
You're a bold chastiser
Magpie
Always waking up my wife and I
You old coyote in the sky
Magpie
Some say you're a bold deceiver
I say you're a true believer
Magpie
You know the west ain't never going to die
Just as long as you can fly
You travel all around these hills
Like a gypsy
I don't see the matter with that
Your choice is meat for something to eat
I don't have a problem with that
You build a big house
With a front and a back door
And you want to be free
Holy Moses magpie
I am you - you are me
Walk that walk
Talk that talk
Sing me a song of way long ago
Was it out on the trail
You got a beautiful tail
Riding on the back of the white buffalo
Did you cut a deal with the white buffalo?
You hand all around these hills
In the winter time
Why in the hell would you want to do that
If it was me I'd be out of here man
Give me a couple of seconds
And I'll grab my hat
Ah, magpie, you're a pretty bird
You just want to be free
Holy Moses magpie
I am you - you are me
 

Own Heart's Delight

There's a light in the kitchen
As I cross the valley and head her on into the yard
My wife is watching from that light in the kitchen
As I cross that old cattle guard
I unload my horses -- Two Bits and Roanie
And throw them a few Flakes of hay
 
My wife comes to meet me with that determined look
The first thing that I heard her say
 
[Chorus:]
Darlin' we haven't gone dancing
For such a long time now
It's been so long since we twirled around the dance floor
I've almost forgotten how
So gas up the pick-up
I'll bring the babies
They'll stay with the neighbors tonight
If the band at the bar
Can play waltzes and shuffles
I'm gonna dance with my own heart's delight
 
So I drank a cold one
I sang in the shower
I pondered upon marriage and such
They say this country was hell on horses and women
I guess it ain't changed all that much
We make a good team my lady and I
I couldn't ask for anything more
If you don't believe me
Just catch us tonight
We'll be the best dancers out on that floor
 
[Repeat Chorus]
 

The Coyote and the Cowboy

Coyote's a survivor, I reckon he's got to be.
He lives in the snow at 40 below or Malibu by the sea.
An' I'm just an old cow puncher, I love to listen to his tune.
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an' Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(try 'er gang)
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an' Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(fantastic. try the whole verse all together now)
Coyote's a survivor, I reckon he's got to be.
He lives in the snow at 40 below or Malibu by the sea.
An' I'm just an old cow puncher, I love to listen to his tune.
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an' Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(try 'er gang)
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an' Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(fantastic. try the whole verse all together now)
Well the cowboy is a conundrum, a contradiction in this age,
Well he says he's doin' fine on the poverty line with a workin' cowboy's wage.
 
The whiskey bottle cost 13 bucks, the big prairie moon is free.
So who is the dumber son of a bitch? The little coyote or me?
Yeh, who is the dumber son of a bitch? The little coyote or me? (take it)
 
So with thoughts of re-incarnation well I drifted off to dream.
I made it for life with a coyote wife and a bushy-tailed coyote queen.
Way down in the valley, at the old long noose saloon,
The cowboy got high on a bottle of rye, we got drunk on the moon.
The cowboy got high on a bottle of rye, we got drunk on the moon.
Everybody Take it home
Coyote's a survivor, I reckon he's got to be.
He lives in the snow at 40 below or Malibu by the sea.
An' I'm just an old cow puncher, I love to listen to his tune.
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an' Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(try 'er gang)
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an' Coyote gets drunk on the moon.

Old Cheyenne

The band would play the anthem
And the clowns fell down in jest
All the people saw again
The winning of the west
Our stomachs full of nothing
And our hearts were full of hopes
As we buckled on our leggings
And we rosined up our ropes
 
And we started going down the road
In the spring of '74
If I had me another trade
I wouldn't ride them bulls no more
Since Charlie died I tried to forget
That day in old Cheyenne
Betty leave your lights on darlin'
I'm going to make it if I can
 
Cause it gets inside your blood
It gets inside your mind
The only way of life
There ain't no other kind
All my thoughts roll back to you
I hope you'll understand
Betty leave your lights on darlin'
Going to make it if I can
 
The place that's known as Cheyenne
Is called the daddy of them all
The one our fathers sang about
At the round-ups in the fall
When Charlie drew that spinning bull
Lord everything went wrong
Got him in an ambulance
Left me here to sing this song
 
And I've kept right on a going
But I drink before I ride
That bottle brings me courage
I believe I'm damn near out of pride
I think I'd get me a factory job
If you'd help me make my stand
Betty leave your lights on darlin'
Going to make it if I can
 
Cause it gets inside your blood
It gets inside your mind
The only way of life
There ain't no other kind
All my thoughts roll back to you
I hope you'll understand
Betty leave your lights on darlin'
Going to make it if I can
 

Love Without End

Love without end, give me love without end.
Like that star in the west, ah keep on blazing.
Sleep through the night, sleep all through the night.
With that one by your side, softly breathin'.
Empty house, the children grown,
An old man rides these hills alone.
How long, how long, will it take to find me ?
Love without end, once I had love without end.
Then I road away, and I left it behind me.
solo:
Work it out, it don't take long, suddenly you're strong.
But I don't know what you do, about the lonely.
Love without end, who has seen love without end ?
Maybe love without end, is in God's eyes, only.
 
[Solo:]
 
Maybe love without end, is for God's eyes, only
 

Charles Goodnight's Grave

On the Llano Estacado
not far from Amarillo
big trucks roll and the wind blows
mostly all of the time
way out on the prairie
in the lonely cemetery
wild rags flutter and the wind sighs
over Charles Goodnight's grave.
 
Bandanas blue and yellow
all the shades of Pala Douro
where they come from I do not know
maybe riders on the wind
all along the fence line
like some old time cowboy's shrine
wild rags flutter and the wind sighs
over Charles Goodnight's grave.
 
[Bridge]
 
If you ride for Amarillo
for to dance the wild fandango
out among the moon glow
of the panhandle plains
raise a toast to the legends
of Goodnight and Loving
and the ones who hang the wild rags
over Charles Goodnight's grave.
