Sitting in the dark, in the darkness of my room...nothing but me and this screen and keyboard. It is my time, my quiet time.

I have a cup of Mickey most mornings then its off to face the new day.

When I leave, its tail lights and neon signs...and the moon.
It may be Rusty Tracks, sometimes its Blue to this Day. But sometimes, its nothing at all.

Truly blue truly blue
I am so sad
I don't know what to do
Truly blue truly blue
I still love you

I'm a sailor seeking refuge
A ship lost in a storm
I'm an orphan child looking for a home
A robin in the winter
Searching for a place that's warm
A hobo cryin' I am too tired to roam.

.it cuts him wide
cuts him deep
cuts him where he does not bleed
cuts him out but it
cuts him free

it cuts him so continuously

the sun comes up and
the sun goes down
his head is spinning around and around
the night and day with his guitar
he makes a wish
upon a star

oh my feet are planted in the ground
but my head is in the sky
and I am somewhere in between

always wondering why

wondering why

They call me a fool and dreamer
Tell me I am wasting my time
How I will search for the rest of my life
For a rainbow I never will find

True I am a fool and dreamer
I will do what a dreamer would do
Dream long enough and
I just may be fool enough to see my dreams come true

Sail to the ground in one last burst of sound
Song of Sorrow
For you are my dream maker I need a dream now to borrow
Likely or not it will all be forgotten tomorrow
Sail to the ground in one last burst of sound
Song of Sorrow

I am a fool and a dreamer
I will do what a dreamer would do
I will dream long enough and I just may be fool enough
To see my dreams come true.

To the sad eyed misinterpreted hung up child of clay.
So the drunken poet's pretty words did not help you find your way.
Was it your mistake for thinkin' he was born before his time.
Or his for thinkin' he could save you with his flimsy rhyme.

Everytime it rains Lord I run to my window
All I do is just wring my hands and moan
Listen to that thunder roar can't ya hear that lonsome wind moan
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long

Tell me baby now why you been gone so long (you been gone so long now)
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long
Wolf is scratchin' at my door Lord Lord
I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long

Somebody said they thought they saw you rollin' down in Reno
With a big ole man from San Antone
They tell me I am a fool to pine for you well what do they know
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long

Tell me baby now why you been gone so long (you been gone so long now)
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long
Wolf is scratchin' at my door Lord Lord
I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long

Ain't nothin' I want to do, Lord. I guess I could get stoned
Let the past paint pictures in my head.
Kill a fifth of Thunderbird to try to write a sad song.
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long

Tell me baby now why you been gone so long (you been gone so long now)
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long
Wolf is scratchin' at my door Lord Lord
I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long

Wolf is scratchin' at my door Lord Lord
I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long

How can I feel so alive with you darlin', in the dead of the night?
Why do I reach out for you every mornin', at the first sign of light?
How could I not know, you knew you were leaving?
How could I not realize?
How could I not know you were pretending?
Where did the truth lie in your eyes?

Why do I feel so much love for you darlin'?
Feel so much love deep inside?
Oh, why do I still feel alive with you darlin', here in the dead of the night?

How could I not know you were pretending?
How could I not realize?
How could I not know, you knew you were leaving?
Where did the truth lie in your eyes?

Craig,
never a more beautiful song was written by our genius songwriter Mickey Newbury.

I sense you to be a sensitive man.

God bless you.

Old friends, old friends
They are a shelter in the wind.
Amen for old friends
On a rainy day.

Old friends, old friends.
That’s what matters in the end.
Amen for old friends
When trouble comes your way.

When you’re down and you’re feeling old.
That is when your friends are gold.
No man is a solitary soul
Old friends, old friends.

When you’re down and you’re feeling old.
That is when one friend is gold.
No man is a solitary soul
Old friend, old friend.

Old friend, old friend.
You’ve been a shelter in the wind.
Thank God for one old friend.
That’s all I have to say.

walk me through the dry hot sand
steal my cup but fill my hand
leave me where the valley can
rock my soul to sleep


[oh let me sleep]
let me sleep

"good night dear hearts"...........

good night my love good night
may all your dreams come true
and may God walk with you
good night my love

now close your sleepy eyes
and sail into the sky
when you awaken I'll be there with you
good night

[good niigghhhhtttt]


says it all.

Reach into your pocket
Cast a dream into the sky
One dream will always fly
Some dreams live forever

And when everything is hopeless
Spread your wings and try
Some dreams live forever
Some dreams never die

When you are in the darkness
Look to where the old lamp lighter prays
If you will call his name
He will light his lamp
And you will find your way

Reach into your pocket
And cast your dreams into the sky
One dream will always fly
Some dreams live forever
Some dreams live forever
Some dreams live forever
Some dreams never die

Stille Nacht! Heil'ge Nacht!
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute hoch heilige Paar.
Holder Knab' im lockigten Haar,
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh!
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh!

Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight,
Glorious stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia;
Christ the Saviour, is born!
Christ the Saviour, is born!


Stille Nacht! Heil'ge Nacht!
Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht
Lieb' aus deinem göttlichen Mund,
Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund'.
Christ in deiner Geburt!
Christ in deiner Geburt!








As performed by Tess Turner and Mickey Newbury
