Wounded Bird Lyrics

Off the tracks
Lost the rail
Trying to squeeze a little blood
Out a rusty nail
When your thirsty
Thirsty

Behind your eyes
You feel the burn
As your downhill ride takes a
Solemn turn for the lonely
Lonely

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

It's like you spent a long time
In an empty bed
In an empty room
With an empty head
Full of nothing
Nothing

Now all you got left
Is the skin of your teeth
And the red in your eye
Six feet deep
To get ready

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

The waiting is over
So let's roll in the clover
Time for a head full of stars
Let's pull back the curtain
Only one thing's for certain
Well, we don't have very long

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

Set your mind to fly

Stare It Cold Lyrics

Under the weather
I never got better
Wrapped up in my disease
Mile away, she want to count my day
Look a little older in the light

Under the weather
Feelin' very heavy
Never up for no air

Sea legs start to wigglin'
And sick I'm still feelin'
Just know I never cared

Don't you want to feel it
Don't you want to stare it cold
Don't you want to feel it
Don't you want to stare it cold

Never thought about it
And never no questions
Seein' where I've gone wrong

No kiss made it magic
'Cause that old girl has had it
Then it's time for me to run along

Go Tell The Congregation Lyrics

Here I am
There I was
Here I go
Just follow me

If it was
Then it can
And we know
How it will be

When it was
Just because
Yes you know
It's not a dream

It's just all
C'mon y'all
I'll tell you
What I mean

When you want to lose your blues
Go tell the congregation
When there's nothing left that you can do
Go tell the congregation
When you want to tell the truth
Go tell the congregation
When the devil's got a hold of you
Go tell the congregation

Don't look back
Stay on track
It's a fact
A lesson to me

Keep in stride
With your pride
Now you know
How strong you can be

There's no time
Draw a line
Yes I know
That you can know me

Look alive
No surprise
Everybody wants to be free

"Everything is everything"

Walk Believer Walk Lyrics

Go down go down you stranger
There's something waiting for you
Angels dogs and honey
Devils and harpoons

You want your mainline Jesus
You want your diamond god
You want to pull the trigger
And kill the autumn hog

Walk believer walk
Straight into the sun
Walk believer walk
Your work is never done

Pray on pray on my brother
Now's the time for truth
Black shadow comes a creepin'
To take the soul right out of you

Can you feel the demons pulling
Can you hear the devil sing
Can you taste the poison in your mouth
Feel the weight of his chains

Walk believer walk
Straight into the sun
Walk believer walk
Your work is never done

Heavy Lyrics

Lordy baby could you tell me what's wrong with me
The way I feel nobody would believe
All these things that you do
You know they drive me out of my mind
And as mean as you are
You know you are my kind

The way you put on your clothes
The way you wiggle your toes
The way you scratch your nose
When you watch it grow

For the first time
I know you're mine
And if you want to know
I'll tell you so
What can I say
I just want you to stay
You're so heavy, you're so heavy

Lordy baby you do get under my skin
Who you kidding baby
You know I'll do it again
Lordy baby you left me black and blue
But that's okay because i know that you dig it too

The way you say hello
When you dig a hole
When you wear yellow
When you play your cello
The way your story goes
The way you make me glow
When you let it snow
What I knows I knows

Nonfiction Lyrics

I don't know my telephone number
But you kiss good and I'd like to
See you tomorrow
And I don't beg, I pay, I don't barter
And if we had a child I'd like a son,
Not a daughter
'Cause she'd be just like you
You know that would not do

I'm no builder, I'm no gardener
I sing some songs, have a friend
Who's a photographer
There ain't no other language
I know how to speak
Some like their water shallow
And I like mine deep
Tied to the bottom
With a noose around my feet

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

I like to dress up like the jury
To eat like a king, to poke fun at clergy
To talk like dirt
To love you like tar
But never fall in too fast
With my north star
While you pull your hair out
I buy the drinks at the bar

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

Poor Elijah - Tribute To Johnson Lyrics

Poor Elijah, living on the bayou way
Poor Elijah, he had to take over raising fourteen kids
When his daddy got caught stealing chickens from a neighbor one day
Work on Elijah, work on

Poor Elijah, born the son of a slave
Poor Elijah, he was damn near blind when he died last week
From working in the sun for the man like a dog all day
Work on Elijah, work on

Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah

Singing a song
A song about a man
Nobody hardly knows him
Nobody hardly knows him
Said nobody hardly knows him
Nobody knows him

- Tribute To Johnson -
Good morning Robert Johnson son
You built your life before your song was sung
People agree and now you're number one.
So sad to think we had to wait so long

It keeps on getting better every day
And maybe someday soon, people will say
Ain't nobody here but good people
Ain't nobody here but good people
Ain't nobody here but good people

No, nobody here
No, nobody here
No, nobody here
No, nobody here

Rockin' Chair Lyrics

Hang around, Willie Boy
Don’t you raise the sails anymore
It’s for sure, I’ve spent my whole life at sea
And I’m pushin’ age seventy three
Now there’s only one place that was meant for me

Oh, to be home again
Down in old Virginny
With my very best friend
They call him Ragtime willie

We’re gonna soothe away the rest of our years
We’re gonna put away all of our tears
That big rockin’ chair won’t go nowhere

Slow down, Willie Boy
Your heart’s gonna give right out on you
It’s true, and I believe I know what we should do
Turn the stern and point to shore
The seven seas won’t carry us no more

Oh, to be home again
Down in old Virginny
With my very best friend
They call him Ragtime willie
I can’t wait to sniff that air
Dip’n snuff, I won’t have no care
That big rockin’ chair won’t go nowhere

Hear the sound, Willie Boy
The flyin’ dutchman’s on the reef
It’s my belief
We’ve used up all our time
This hill’s to steep to climb
And the days that remain ain’t worth a dime

Oh, to be home again
Down in old Virginny
With my very best friend
They call him Ragtime Willie
Woulda been nice just t’see the folks
Listen once again to the stale jokes
That big rockin’ chair won’t go nowhere

I can hear something calling on me
And you know where I want to be
Oh willie don’t you hear that sound
Oh to be home again down in old Virginny
I just want to get my feet back on the ground
Oh to be home again down in old virginny

I’d love to see my very best friend
They call him Ragtime Willie
I believe old rockin chair’s got me
Oh to be home again

She Talks To Angels Lyrics

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family

She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
She gives a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna' make everything alright

Says she talks to angels
They call her out by her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck
Yes the hair is from a little boy
And the cross from someone she has not met
Not yet

(Repeat Chorus)

She don't know no lovers
None that I've ever seen
And to her that means nothing
But to me it means, means everything

(Repeat second verse)
(Repeat Chorus)

Lay It All On Me Lyrics

Come on down crooked man
Step on up broken man
Well its ok to cry troubled man
Just ease your worried mind and rest awhile

Do you remember when it started
You had a dream
Now you never talk about it
Your fame and riches were everything
No matter what the cost
Now you wish you hadn't blown it

Well lay it all on me
Lay it all on me

Come on down crooked man
Step on up broken man
Its ok to cry troubled man
Just ease your worried mind and rest awhile

I came to see how you were doing
Its been a while
Looking back over your shoulder
You were restless and you were wild
Always running away
Once was young now is older

Lay it all on me
Lay it all on me

So come on down crooked man
Step on up broken man
Well its ok to cry troubled man
Just ease your worried mind and rest awhile

Come on down baby
Ease your worried mind
Lay it on me
Lay it on me

God's Got It Lyrics

If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

Oh, Josephine Lyrics

Diamonds hold the mirrors
And the spoon it holds the stars
It's been a long time baby
Since I seen the sun rise like this
Make a wish and call it "maybe"
And give me one more kiss
Ooh, I like it like this, I like it like this

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

Still dreaming through the comedown
Still fillin' every page
C'mon and touch me baby
Before I turn to rust

You know there ain't no other
It's not a matter of trust
Just sometimes love ain't enough
Love ain't enough

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

For a while I was dealing in tears and powders
For a while I was strung out beyond my means
I lost at love while climbing down the ladder
Just looking for the song to set me free

No waiting for redemption
No leaving love behind
You gotta know where you wanna be
It gets cold outside

It's too late to play it safe
So let's let it all ride
Let's let it all ride
Let it all ride

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

Wiser Time Lyrics

No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile

You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another road song
Funny but I bet you never left home

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Fourteen seconds till' sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Jealous Again Lyrics

Cheat the odds that made you
Brave to try to gamble at times
Well I feel like dirty laundry
Sending sickness on down the line
Tell you why

'Cause I'm jealous, jealous again
Thought it time I let you in
Yeah, I'm jealous, jealous again
Got no time, baby

Always drunk on Sunday
Try'n to feel like I'm at home
Smell the gasoline burning
Boys out feeling nervous and cold

(Repeat 1st Chorus)

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you
Never felt like smiling
Sugar wanna' kill me yet
Find me loose lipped and laughing
Singing songs ain't got no regrets
(Repeat 1st and 2nd Chrous)

Don't you think I want to
Don't you think I would
Don't you think I'd tell you baby
If I only could
Am I acting crazy
Am I just too proud
Am I just plain lazy
Am I, Am I, Am I, ever

Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution Lyrics

Caught a rusty engine out of sawdust town
Made a deal with the man who shook 'em all down
So put a little grease on my axle now
I've been from Antioch to Alcatraz
I can roll you one from an empty bag
So let's take it easy to avoid any snags

CHORUS:

Goodbye daughters of the revolution
Open your eyes and see the solution
Hallelujah come join the jubilee
So let's keep on runnin'
Through the gates of the city
To give up now would be such a pity
And don't you want to see the ship
Go down with me

I'll come to you hungry I'll come to you sore
I'll come round midnight to your back door
I'll drag my tail across your floor
Gonna run you ragged til you act your age
Gonna circle the wagons gonna storm your stage
If we all plead guilty will the charges be the same

Chorus

I've been restless, baby
I'm feeling wild
Caught up in a fever dream
Save me child
Save me child

Chorus

Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down?

Feathers Lyrics

I feel clean again
I don't waste my sin
I can't spare a grin
Because it's bad blood time again

My morning full on speed
No it's not so rare to me
This is, this is a hungry need
Won't you help me to plant the seed

And if it grows
Yes, we'll know, oh we'll know
If I found you a floating feather
Sent down to help me fly away
If I found you a floating feather
I would be amazed
I'd be amazed

Your lips taste dry again
A death cold has got your skin
I'm not lost in who loses or wins
I would just like for this spell to end

Cause I'm ready
Ready to begin
Begin again
If I found you a floating feather
Sent down to help me fly away
If I found you a floating feather
I would be amazed

I, well I remember one time
You were all smiles
Nothing stood in our way
Well so here I am now
Here I am just wanting to return to those days
We'll get there baby
I'll take you there babe
Oh, we will find, we will find our way

The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down Lyrics

Virgil Caine is my name, and I served on the Danville train
Til Stoneman's Calvery came and tore up the tracks again
In the winter of '65, we were hungry, just barely alive
By May the tenth, Richmond had fell,
it's a time I remember oh so well

CHORUS:
The night they drove old Dixie down, and the bells were ringin'
The night they drove old Dixie down, and the people were singin'
They went na na na na na na, na na na na na na na na

Back with my wife in Tennessee, when one day she said to me
"Virgil, quick come see, there goes Robert E. Lee"
Well I don't mind choppin' wood,
and I don't care if the money's no good
Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest
They never should have taken the very best

CHORUS
Like my father before me, I will work the land Like my brother above me, I took a rebel stand He was just eighteen, proud and brave, til a Yankee laid him in his grave I swear by the mud beneath my feet You can't raise a Caine when he's in defeat CHORUS CHORUS
