Track Name: Almost (acoustic)
Well I thought I was smart
Swore I had a brain
Felt I had a heart beat
Thought you where feeling the same
So strange
Not even close
My own little yellow brick road
Almost

I was out on the lake
With a line and pole
Guess I caught what I wanted
But I couldn’t keep holdin’ on
So long
So tight
Like the fish that broke that line
Almost

Old tales and stories that just cloud up your mind
Once upon a time I bought them line after line
Babe you almost sold me on you one last time
Oh no… Almost

Hey lord this is little bitty me
Talkin’ to big old you
Tough to believe in your stories
Lately stories just ain’t been true
For me
Looked down you probably see
These days I believe in hardly anything
Almost
Track Name: I Tell You (acoustic)
I tell you she told me
Set me down
Gave me back my key
She’s sick of this house
She’s sick of me
I tell you she told me

If I’d known how she’d be
I’d a let her go
I’d a set her free
A long time ago
‘Sted of fallin’ so deep
I tell you she told me

She spoke real sweet and tenderly
But the words she said
Ain’t what they use to be

I tell you how it felt to me
It hit me hard
Knocked the wind outa’ me
Now I’m blowin’ away
Like a tumble weed
I tell you she told me
I tell you she told me goodbye I’m sorry
Track Name: Gave it Back (acoustic)
Got rid of the gift I gave you last Christmas
I gave it to a girl in bowling green
It’s been in the back a’my closet like the sadness you left me
It’s only recently I been recovering

I really don’t know the girl that well
She’s what you call a friend of a friend
All I know is she don’t live in this town
And there’s a chance I won’t see that damn jacket again

I handed you my affection
And every ounce of my love
You returned it all with rejection
Yeah you gave it back
Yeah you gave it back

Well I picked up on a good sign this morning
Can’t remember your telephone numbers at all
But I still taste your favorite sweet candy
And hear the nickname your little niece use to call

I’ve given up on why it went wrong
I guess we’re both better this way
But given up on why it’s all gone
Doesn’t mean I don’t miss you in so many ways
Oh I miss you in so many ways

Yeah you gave it back
Oh you gave it back
Yeah you gave it back
Oh you gave it back
Track Name: Can't Thank You Enough
I can’t thank you enough
There’s to much to say
Everything you’ve ever done
To help me on my way
I can not ever repay

I can’t thank you enough
There’s now way to describe
I just can’t explain
What I feel deep inside
No matter how hard I ever try
I can’t thank you enough

When no one around reaches a hand out
You are my best damn friend
Now that I’ve found you never cared about
Who I was or where I’d been
How Can I ever begin?

I can’t thank you enough
I just hope that I’ll be
Everything in this world
You told me I could be
In time we’ll see
I can’t thank you enough

When no one around reaches a hand out
You are my best damn friend
Now that I’ve found you never cared about
Who I was or where I’d been
How Can I ever begin?

I can’t thank you enough
I can’t thank you enough
Track Name: Highway Side
I been drivin’ route twenty-four
To a job that’s such a chore
I pass a man looks a lot like me
He’s surely got a hard luck story
I wonder how did he get there
As I see him in my rear view mirror
Somethin’ tells me he and I are the same

Walkin’ on a thin white line
Watchin all the cars go by
Hopin’ for a northbound ride
Down on the highway side

Hitchhikin’ route twenty-four
God I wish I knew what’s in store
A man passin’ looks a lot like me
Except he’s on easy street
I wonder how did he get there
As I see him in his rear view mirror
Somethin’ tells me he and I are the same

Walkin’ on a thin white line
Watchin all the cars go by
Hopin’ for a northbound ride
Down on the highway side
Track Name: Roses
I don’t know
I can’t Tell
If I wanna wish you well
To see you off
Away from here
To watch you turn and disappear

Cause if I had you In my hold
By your touch I’d turn to gold
If I had you in my reach
There’d be roses growing at my feet

Let’s make a promise
On who we’ve been
That we won’t ever meet again
Let’s never speak
Each other’s name
Cause nothing good means anything

I’ll let you go
I’ll let you pass
But we can’t deny the simple facts
Our fields are baron
With out measure
And I’ll be left with silver pleasure

Roses Growing
Roses Growing
Roses Growing at my feet
Track Name: Nightingale
It don’t matter what you do
No, It don’t matter what you do
Cause whatever you do
She’s gonna walk all over you

Well we never could agree on the slightest thing
‘Cept she liked the way I look and I love to hear her sing
In a whisper like a nightingale
Couldn’t see how it could ever fail

Well she grew cold and she didn’t stay long
Didn’t even sing me one last song
She went and threw her boy away
Well I never could’ve made her stay

She calls me when I’m lying in the bed at night
Digging up the past just to start a fight
She’s giving me the runaround
Just her manic little ups and downs

She’s a restless temperamental when she’s all alone
No matter who she’s with it never feels like home
I try and tell her it’s o.k.
But she never listens anyway

She’s my little nightingale
She’s Gonna walk all over you
She’s my little nightingale
She’s gonna walk all over you
Track Name: So Long
She always had some pretty way about her
So the boys would always ask what’s goin’ on
But pretty fades with age into forever
You always think you have it til it’s gone
So long
‘Til it’s gone

Now she grew up, was cut out to be the prom queen
He had no chance of winning her love at all
She was always looking out for some sort of James Dean
You always think your right ‘til your wrong
So long
‘Til it’s gone

He never seems to love her like he use to
Cause he never stays around home very long
Forever was something they never thought of
But you always think you have it ‘til it’s gone
So long
‘Til it’s gone

Now a little boy sure could use a father
But you do the best you can to get along
Blame yourself for the last time he was leaving
And you always think your right but you’re wrong

So long
‘Til it’s gone
Track Name: Born in the Dark
There’s sweet hearts dancing
In the corner of a bar I know
Despite all of there steps
They’ve still got a ways to go

There’s a street full of churchs
Preaching them same old words
Pardon me brother
Won’t you teach me something I ain’t heard
- It’s not good enough for me

I was born in the dark but I see the lights
Baby don’t you hold on tight
We’ve been through this before
But I ain’t hanging around this town no more

There’s a view of the city
Where lovers go to play
Rusty cars
And kisses that fade away

There’s trouble on the square
With blood falling on the street
Breaking bones because
There’s a women who will always cheat
- It’s not good enough for me

I was born in the dark but I see the lights
Baby don’t you hold on tight
We’ve been through this before
But I ain’t hanging around this town no more

I’ve seen the streets
And the buildings in the catalogs
At the limits of the sky
A man’s got climb or fall

I was born in the dark but I see the lights
I was born in the dark but I see those lights
I was born in the dark but I see those lights

Baby don’t you hold on tight
We’ve been through this before
But I ain’t hanging around this town
But I ain’t hanging around this town
But I ain’t hanging around this town no more
Track Name: A Ringing Still
Check in late at a cheap motel
Full of fools and trucks and I can’t tell
If they’d steal the shirt right off my back
And I close my eyes and try to sleep
Think of all the people I could meet
Who would sympathize about just where I’m at

I hear a ringing still - I hear a ringing still
Oh it will not fade - it never fades away
I hear a ringing still - I hear a ringing still
Oh it will not fade - it never fades away

Lonely girl with pretty eyes
With thoughts that turn to suicide
She’s never thought of love as something real
‘Cause the silhouette of a man she knows
Who broke her body and cut her soul
Is a memory that has to scar and heal
She hears a ringing still...

A boy one day then made a man
Shipped off with a gun to a hostile land
At least he thought I’ll make my father proud
He got back and no one cared
His hands would shake and they all stared
The things he’d done he’d never say aloud
He hears a ringing still...

Time can hurt leave you betrayed
There’s one thing that time can not change

And I check out of that one night room
And watch the morning rise and bloom
It’s a mystery the things still to come
I look back at the stories told
All the pain and tears of the young and old
Can we kill the things that we’re all running from

We hear a ringing still...
Track Name: Farther Find Me Now
Tell me sir where we going now
The wind blows from town to town
Taken away
We can never stay

Something to do with who we were before
Tell you the truth I don’t know anymore
Where I been
Where to go

I’ve fought and I’ve dreamed
I’ve patiently prayed just to reach a touch of grace
Farther Find Me Now
Farther Find Me Now
Farther Find Me Now

They will push you and rush you on down the line
You best keep movin’ hoping someone will find
Where you are
Who you were
Where we going
Please tell me sir

I’ve fought and I’ve dreamed
I’ve patiently prayed just to reach a touch of grace
Farther Find Me Now
Farther Find Me Now
Farther Find Me Now

Me and my sister use to play this game
I try to remember I can’t explain
All the rules
Where has she gone
Where we going
Where has she gone
Tell me sir
Where has she gone
