Good Morning Captain Lyrics

There's a ruckus on the levee
Unruly crowd on the court house steps
If we make it to sunday
I'm sho' nuff gonna ask the good lord for help
With a mouthful of salt i try to explain
If money was sand i couldn't hold one grain
I feel like a thefe that knows he's been framed
For leaving the watch but stealing the chain

Chorus
Good morning captain
I wish there was another way
But my baby is wantin'
Me roll around in her bed all day

Well the late nights got me reellin'
Spillin out the bottle
Right into the next day
Got a funny little feelin'
Gonna be like this till my dying day
There's mud in my eye
But i can still see
Everybody in town is tryin' to murder me
If they don't get me ‘spose the hangman will
So i better think twice about making this deal
Chorus

Magnolia magnolia resting
Under the shade of your leaves

The Shady Grove Lyrics

Meet me by the banks of the sweet primrose
And we’ll follow it down
To the shady grove
Bonnie blow the breeze by the cabin door
No two lovers could ask for more
So grab your fiddle and your old banjo
Play a country blues so sweet and slow
We’ll sing along to the drunkards doom
And rock all night by the silvery moon

These old trees grow straight to heaven
So it goes in the shady grove

When the old hen crackles
And the ground gets cold
Our fine buck skin
Dances through the snow
We’ll take to town on a saturday night
You and me baby make such a sight

Whiskey wine name your pleasure
So it goes in the shady grove

Hey boys gather round we’ll put it up
They’ll tear it down
Heay boys rockabye
Kiss the pretty girls goodbye

Hey boys up on high
Don’t you stop til you reach the sky
Hey boys let it ring
A song for everyone to sing

When the fish start biting
At the new may flies
And the muddy roads have all done dried
The honeysuckle says it’s summertime
That old yellow sun is mighty kind

Hear the seasons come with reasons
So it goes in the shady grove

Won’t you be my lullaby babe
In this sweet bye and bye babe
It’s okay to cry let the sadness pass you by
And know i’ll always love you babe

Hey boys up on high
Don’t you stop til you reach the sky
He boys let it ring
A song for everyone to sing

Soul Singing Lyrics

I've been down
Cascading and blue without a sound
Now I've traded my black feathers for a crown
So feed me milk and honey lay me down
Lay me down
Look around
Show me holy places not yet found
Lets disappear and we'll hide underground
And we'll get high and we'll feel safe and sound
It comes around
Around

Chorus:
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Come on now come on now

Home bound
Tired of tired of running town to town
Tired of my heart turned upside down
Now my life a smile and not a frown
The sound
The sound

Chorus

Poor Elijah 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

Appaloosa Lyrics

To be struck by the arrow of weakness
On the guilded path to forgiveness
To find my way home when morning comes
To stay your friend
When it’s all said & done
Simple as lightning starting wild fire
Just down from a trip off my high wire
Just coming home to walk my own floors
Coming home to the one i adore

Appaloosa (x3)
Take me home
Where i can dream my days away

We took your tears back to the river
Knowing all the while
There would be more later
So it goes in a rainy day town
C’mon and won’t you let me lay you down

Sometimes the sun makes beggers believers
And sometimes the shrine
Is built to deceivers
In between let oblivion ring
Oh let me hear all the sad angels sing

Another Roadside Tragedy Lyrics

Kiss me goodnight, shake me awake.
The closer I get to you the more I can't wait.
Roll on down hill, smell my brakes
No time for coffee, just splash water on my face, oh yeah

Kick my tires, count out of state plates
Roll down my window, don't the wind feel great?
Sunrise my friend, sunset again
This song I keep humming while my four wheels' spinning

Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy

Wind it down and back it up
I might get there sooner than I thought
No warranty on the wear and tear
It don't matter, just as long as I get there

Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy

Houston Don't Dream About Me Lyrics

Another week in the driver's seat
With your feet up on the dashboard
The rain kept a steady beat
As i watched you dream of houston
I ain't ever going back,
Yes sir that's a fact
As you waved your cowboy hat
And sang “the yellow rose of texas”

Just trying to make high ground
Has kept us on the run
There's no crime in towing the line
Because fortune is smiling on us baby
And we're going to walk in the sun

Chorus:
I might dream about houston
But houston don't dream about me
And if i can keep it between the lines
Who knows what will be

Loose change days and motel nights
Day old coffee dollar postcards
State troopers flashing lights
As we listen to the thunder
As we talked about our past
So we see our coming future
You tell me you know love can last

While staring out the window
Just looking for a place to hide
A place to ease our minds
A place away from yesterday
Close to tomorrow away from the sorrows
Of living other people's time

How long how long
Til we feel the change
How long how long
Will the skies be grey
How long how long

Evil Eye Lyrics

This is illegal
through an evil eye,
and I won't deceive you,
this I testify.
You all know the reason why.
I won't enslave you.
A little bliss forever.
I'm not afraid to love you.
A little bliss forever

(Chorus)

Look at the world with an evil eye;
your cold heart won't let you cry;
try to make a change in the wink of an eye.
Do you have it in you to even try?

Jesus can't save you,
though it's nice to think he'd try.
This is not to scare you;
this is to make sense of our time.
Do prophets speak in rhymes?
Then you die!

(Chorus)
(Chorus)

Ozone Mama Lyrics

Well Listen

Get hip to this ya'll

Right in the middle of our minds

We won't ever let it drag
This funny feeling got me reeling

Chorus:
Ozome mama lay your daddy down
Under the stars right down on the ground
Mother nature got me thinking
About the love that you've been bringing

We don't ever have to brag
You got this poor boy thinking
From the cup I been drinking
Ooh do it now

Chorus

I Ain't Hiding Lyrics

Rust on my pickups
And blood on the stage
Seeds in the ashtray
And coke on a blade
Nyc delivers that's a guarantee
The only thing that keep the day from me

Line at the bathroom
Line at the bar
Take it outside
Do the rest in the car
Hard candy babies in a bright light fright
Rock and roll rat race everybody's uptight,
That's right

Ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

Stayed on the dance floor
'Cause you can't find the door
Can't run out 'cause there's always more
Keep on rocking 'cause it's not even four
Turn up the bass until your ears get sore

I ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

Ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

So Many Times Lyrics

So many times i've been fooling myself
It's a hard hand to play,
Falls on nobody else
Those in the city reaching out to grab hold
Of something they've only heard about
And never been shown

Who do you turn to and what do you say
When she's got the power and she got the way
Does it matter at all
Who survives and who falls
When we live under darkness
And hide behind walls

Why would anyone even try to hold sway
Over somebody else in such a small way

Where are the answers to the problems we face
Who would teach us
About sharing and living in grace

Who do you turn to and what do you say
When she's got the power and she got the way
Does it matter at all
Who survives and who falls
When we live under darkness
And hide behind walls

Garden Gate Lyrics

Brown eyed girl
Precious flower
From your slumber awake
We have come to the fateful hour
And our love cannot wait

Chorus
Meet me at the gate
At the garden gate
Meet me at the garden gate
You made a promise now don’t be late
Meet me at the garden gate

Don’t tell your mother
Don’t tell your father
We both know it’s far too late
When we fly they won’t come after
And they will know our love is great

Chorus

You are sweet as you are tender
You are wise beyond your years
You are a jewel amongst the cinders
So don’t shed a sorry tear

Let It Be Gone Lyrics

Ooh I love you
Oh yes I love you
Be mine
I've got whiskey
I've got wine now
Take my time

Sit right down
I'll tell you all about it
Cause nothing's ever changed me
In my life

I don't blame you
Blaming no one
For doing what you done
To you, to me and everyone

Let it be gone
Let it be gone
Let it be gone
Let it be gone

Ooh I love you
Oh yes I love you
Be mine
I've got whiskey
I've got wine now
Take my time

Sure you sung
You never paid no mention
Cause nothing's ever changing in your life
Believing in no one
Always on the runaround
And wondering what to do with you and me and he comes along

Let it be gone
Let it be gone
Let it be gone
Let it be gone

I hope someday you'll think of me
Remember all that love
Though it's near the end
And costing nothing to a friend
I'm back again, back again

Ooh baby you're driving me crazy

Twice as Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)

Been A Long Time Lyrics

Earthbound wingless dream
Child born to necessity
Tied to crimson velvet wings
She flies
New moon midnight star
Medicine is in the jar
Head full of going far
She flies
Lost out on the dream road
Looking for a key hole
Never try to fight it
Feeling right inside it

Low country blushing bride
Blind to the ways of time
Clear crystal burning mind
She flies
Falling through liquid air
With music everywhere
Stone faces silent stare
She flies
The old guard on the hill
Can feel the chill
Deep into the freeze of
Those who don't believe

Chorus
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love
Been a long time waiting on love

Damp with this morning dew
The world is bright and new
Her word is always true
She flies
Step into the new day
Right over the old way
We are the horizon
See our future smiling

Girl From A Pawnshop Lyrics

With pawnshop eyes and a second hand frown
She sat silent at the table
Her boots were brown, well should she leave town
To play the role of lover expatriate
A nod to the waiter, always her flirty behavior
You know she always gets one on the house
She pulls out a letter
From a bag under her sweater
And before she reads she straightens her blouse

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

And out of respect, well really must confess
I never lost your number
I never lost your address
And if we remain friends at best
Sometime later no, no not yet
We'll smile and remember it like this

She put back the letter
One tear falls like a feather
And disappears on the bar room floor
The gratuity included
You know the letter concluded
P.S. with all my love

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

I said P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love

Don't Do It Lyrics

Baby don't you do it, don't do it
Don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

A sacrifice would make you happy if nothing for myself
Now you wanna leave me for the love of someone else
My pride is all gone whether I'm right or wrong
I need you baby to keep on keepin' on

You know I'm trying to my best
Oh i'm trying to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

My biggest mistake was loving you too much and letting you know
Now you got me where you want me and you won't let me go
If my heart was made of glass well then you'd surely see
How much heartache and misery, girl, you've been causing me

While I've been trying to do my best
Well I've tried to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

Go down to the river and there I be
I'm gonna jump in girl, but you don't care bout me
Open up your eyes
Can't ya see I love ya?
Open up you heart, girl
Can't ya see I need ya?

Oh baby don't do it, do it, do it
Don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it don't you break my heart

My biggest mistake was loving you too much and letting you know
Now you got me where you want me and you won't let me go
If my heart was made of glass well then you'd surely see
How much heartache and misery, girl, you've been causing me

While I've been trying to do my best
You know I've tried to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart
