Church and State There’s a house down where Church meets State The oak on the corner stands proud Tucked inside of those old four walls Are the best friends that I have now Out in her pink rocking chair, “A” is wise She stomps her boots to the rhythms that we make We listen to her wisdom unwind As she ages like a deep red wine “M” went out to a nation in need She gave her hands to the work of good out there Her heart is stout, her temper is short, but You won’t find one like her just anywhere So we sing ooooooo Lord bless that old house “G”s got a songbird wrapped in her heart With a story that she may never tell How she fell in love with a boy form the bar And their love saved his soul from the depths of hell So we sing ooooooo Lord bless that old house There’s a house down where Church meets State The oak on the corner stands proud Tucked inside of those old four walls Are the best friends that I have now

Memory 04:02
Memory It’s been too long now and I don’t know where he’s gone Maybe to the bottom of the darkest sea But that don’t matter much, cause I can bring him up If you let me Memory, honestly you’ll break my mind if you take this man He’s the only thing, memory, that I’ve ever really even had And you can’t hide my peace when I close these eyes, memory I’ve been hangin on, if only by one thought How I can hear his heart beat singin me to sleep And just like that I know, if I ever let this go Nothing will catch me Memory, honestly you’ll break my mind if you take this man He’s the only thing, memory, that I’ve ever really even had And you can’t hide my peace when I close these eyes, memory You can’t hide my peace when I close these eyes, memory You can’t hide my peace when I close these eyes, memory

Ode To Vic Chesnutt I woke up, howling at the dawn Restless as my wanderin’ eyes awakened It’s not enough, to make what you want from dreams Because all such things are likely to be shaken Ooo, ooo life, spinning like a wheel Ooo, ooo life, and the pain is real I saw him there, fixed upon the mount’ Shinnin’ like the noon-day sun was burnin’ So I threw my cares and all my earthly doubt Upon that hill to have him lift my burden Ooo, ooo life, spinning like a wheel Ooo, ooo life, and the pain is real Ooo, ooo life, all I want I feel Ooo, ooo life, and the love is real It won’t be long, before the twilight falls And shadows take their places all around me But the darkest hour, comes right before the dawn And you’ll find me holdin’ on, Till the light comes through my window in the mornin’ Ooo, ooo life, spinning like a wheel Ooo, ooo life, and the pain is real Ooo, ooo life, all I want I feel Ooo, ooo life, and the love is real Ooo, ooo life, Ooo, ooo life And the love is real

Cowboy 03:05
Cowboy No one seems to know just how far I would go Could I turn my back on him or flee for Mexico Maybe I would, if I thought he would care And maybe I should, start kickin’ dust in the air But he’s my cowboy and I am his girl We’ve been out across the Great Plains, and all around the world I’d be a fool to throw him back, even for diamonds or pearls Cause he’s my cowboy and I am his girl I can’t even count the nights he’s left me in tears Someday I might grow the nerve to just cut outta here Maybe I would, if I thought he would notice Ah maybe I should, and leave him nothing to show But he’s my cowboy and I am his girl We’ve been out across the Great Plains, and all around the world I’d be a fool to throw him back, even for diamonds or pearls Cause he’s my cowboy and I am his girl Ooo ya know I love him all the time Even when he leaves me cold at night All the good things in the whole wide world are mine Cause he’s my cowboy and I am his girl We’ve been out across the Great Plains, and all around the world I’d be a fool to throw him back, even for diamonds or pearls Cause he’s my cowboy and I am his girl

Damn Your Love I am walkin’ away But I don’t want to I wish you would stop me, or real me back in But you won’t So I know I can’t stay It’s been three whole days With no words from you How do you do it, how do you string me out And keep me feelin’ this way Damn your love, damn your kisses I wish I never knew This ain’t right, I want you to fix it I want to be by your side Well of course I will Find me somebody new But it’s a sin, to let that one in If my heart still belongs to you Damn your love, damn your kisses I wish I never knew This ain’t right, I want you to fix it I want to be by your side (x2) I am walkin’ away But I don’t want to I wish you would stop me, yes real me back in But you won’t So I know I can’t stay

Dancing As I Go You said I love you way too soon Now all that’s left is nothing less Than singin’ the blues You wait for me a little still You’re praying that I’ll call you but you know I never will Because I’m free, dancing as I go I’m gonna loose myself in the rhythm of your blues Yes I’m free, dancing wherever I go And I won’t look back cause I stole your dancing shoes You hold this fire in your mouth These words are burning bridges and keeping you From getting out So this is how it’s going to be You’ll live alone in all your own sweet Misery Because I’m free, dancing as I go I’m gonna loose myself in the rhythm of your blues Yes I’m free, dancing wherever I go, And I won’t look back cause I stole your dancing shoes One by one the days keep slippin’ You’re not here and I’m not missin’ you. Two more days, I’m headed out town Drivin’ up North with my windows down And I won’t recall your name No I won’t recall your name Because I’m free, dancing as I go I’m gonna loose myself in the rhythm of your blues Yes I’m free, dancing wherever I go, And I won’t look back cause I stole your dancing shoes No I won’t look back cause I stole your dancing shoes No I won’t look back cause I stole your dancing shoes

Diamonds 04:00
Diamonds When you walk out in the middle of the night, Where do you lay your head I won’t tell, if you don’t fight I believe we’ve got God on our side We’ve got God on our side You’ve got diamonds in your eyes You’ve got diamonds, I can see em tonight You’ve got diamonds in your eyes You’ve got diamonds, oh they’re with you tonight Yes they’re with you tonight If you decide to change your mind What kind of man would you be Well you can’t change and I won’t fight Just believe we’ve got God on our side We’ve got God on our side You’ve got diamonds in your eyes You’ve got diamonds, I can see em tonight You’ve got diamonds in your eyes You’ve got diamonds, oh they’re with you tonight Yes they’re with you tonight

Plain As Paper That girl is plain as paper, white as white can be Her face is dull like the earth and dirt But you see her and you don’t see me If she speaks it’s but a whisper, her mouth so pale and small And there’s nothin’ special in the way she walks But if she passes I see you see it all I’ve been tryin’, feels like wastin’ All my aces to have you see But I’m not getin’, any closer To bein’ anything you need Cause you see her, and you don’t see me Well what am I gonna do now, I thought I had it all But all the pretty girls in the whole wide world You wouldn’t trade them for your little paper doll All pretty girls in the whole wide world They got nothin’ on your little paper doll I’ve been tryin’, feels like wastin’ All my aces to have you see But I’m not getin’ any closer To bein’ anything you need Cause you see her and you don’t see me

Why Do You Leave Out in the dark, we heard your favorite song You held my hand, and you sang along Now there’s no one and there’s nothin’ That I want more I Tried to keep you here forever That’s why I don’t understand Why do you leave Down in the dark, you were the light I saw You picked me up, now it’s been so long And there’s no one and theres’s nothin’ That takes me away I know nothin’ lasts forever Still I just don’t understand Why do you leave I know nothin’ lasts forever That takes me away I Tried to keep you here forever That’s why I don’t understand Why do you leave
