When you're cold
there's nothing as welcome as sunshine
When you're dry
there's nothing as welcome as rain
When you're alone
there's nothing no slower than passing time
When you're a-foot
there's nothing as fast as a train...

We would sweat and moan until the need in us was gone
In one another’s arms all through the night
You would cry out my name
As we were drawn into the flames
What will I do now, now that your gone

What will I do in the dead of the night
When she turns out the light
And she comes to me when she comes to me
Oh what will I do ‘til the need in me subsides
Simply close my eyes and try to sleep

Oh there are nights I know, when the lights are way down low
I can feel you reaching out to me
So I close my eyes, and I let my memory fly
To a time and place with you so long ago, so long ago

Oh what will I do in the dead of the night
When she turns out the light
When she comes to me, when she comes to me
Oh what will I do ‘til the need in me subsides
Simply close my eyes and try to sleep
And try to sleep…
and try to sleep.

she has grown tired of chasin' rainbows
I loved her so
and God You know I tried
but she was right I am at the end
I found the pot but there is no gold inside

So sunshine
I am not alone don't bother me
sunshine
pick up your dawn and move on down
the street
sunshine as far as I'm concerned
I am where I want to be

sunshine
as far as you're concerned don't be concerned
for me

How's the weather out in California
I might be in LA for awhile
when I settle in one night I'll phone ya'

Maybe..we could get together

well I've had a good time
but I guess it's time to leave
I thought I could make it with you ?
but all we ever talked about was how your being free
made you such a woman of the world

how's the weather down in Oklahoma
I might be in [Austin] for awhile
when I settle in one night I'll phone ya'

Maybe..we could get together

get together
get together

Woke up this mornin’ and the sundown shinin’ in
I found my broken mind in a brown paper bag of zen
Tripped on a cloud I fell eight miles high
Tore my mind upon a jagged sky
Just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

Pushed my soul in a deep dark hole, followed it in
Met myself crawlin’ out as I was crawlin’ in
I woke up so tired, I said I never will unwind
Saw too much I broke my mind
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

Lord, Lord, Lord, what condition my condition was in…

Somebody painted April Fool in big black letters on a dead end sign
I had my foot in the gas when I left the road and blew out my mind
Eight miles out of Memphis, Lord, I got no spare
Eight miles straight up downtown somewhere
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

Lord, Lord, Lord…what condition my condition was in...

The Highways not a place at night
To have your heart breakdown...
There's no one there to lend a helping hand...
We're living in a time when fear won't let you turn around...
To save a lost soul who's cold and barely standing...
He shows up in the headlights for a moment....
I'm too far down the road to turn back now...
Someone else will stop in time, I'm certain...
Besides, no one would stop for me no how...
Did I get through those years and put it all together...
Times have changed but I remember when...
The only thing changin' was the weather...
Do you ever think about me, my old friend.

Oh I am a weary stranger
On this long and this lonely road
Do you know you are my brother
Oh my Father he told me so

Come and walk with me my brother
You can see how I am clothed
That I have nothing much I can offer
But just a brother with you on this road

They call you the man of sorrow
They call you the precious soul
But I call you your mother’s treasure
And she calls you your father’s gold

Oh I am a weary traveler
On this long and this lonely road
Do you know I am your brother
For my Father has told me so

For my Father has told me so

Peggy Sue, if you don't want my lovin'
Won't you leave me alone
Peggy Sue, if you don't want my lovin'
Won't you leave me alone
Freight Train howlin' in the dead of the night
Freight train howlin' in the dead of the night
Freight train howlin' in the dead of the night
Oh, you can not be true can you, Peggy Sue

IF SOMEONE MUST CRY

It hurts me so much to let you go
So very much, you'll never know
But though it breaks my heart to set you free...
Darlin', IF SOMEONE MUST CRY, I'm glad it's me!

You say you'll stay if I ask you to
But how could I be happy makin' you blue
Though I may spend my life in misery
Darlin', IF SOMEONE MUST CRY, I'm glad it's me

No, I never want to see you cry
The way I'm crying now
Your happiness is all that matters too me
So, Darlin', just kiss me, then say, "Goodbye"
And remember I'll love you until I die

Even though it hurts me so, I guess it has to be
So, Darlin', IF SOMEONE MUST CRY, IF SOMEONE MUST CRY,
I'm glad it's me!

I was just a boy the year the Bluebird Special came through here
On it’s first run south to New Orleans
A blind old man and I we came to Guthrie just to see the train
He was black, and I was green

“Tell me what you see”, he said, “is the engine black or red”
“Why, that’s the loudest thing I’ve ever seen”.
Then he picked his guitar up, sat on the fender of the truck
His eyes lit up as he began to sing.

And I remember when, that old man’s dreams were chained
To a depot down in Guthrie and a Bluebird Special train.

He picked his guitar up shuffled down the walk
The cars uptown wound ‘round the buildings at his feet
Lookin’ mighty proud that old man with his battered hat in his hand
Lord he sung a song that made me weep.
Yes he made me weep…

I read it in a week old paper that no one made it for his wake
Or laid a flower at his feet.
He was just a blind old beggar people said
Lord I’ll wager he won’t beggin’ on your streets

You’ll find him Lord this mornin’, he’ll be steppin’ from the dark
Can you save a street in glory, Lord, for Cortelia Clark

~.~

I was just a boy the year the Bluebird Special came through here

Well mornin’s come, and Lord my mind is achin’
The sunshine is standin’ quietly at my door
Just like the dawn my heart is silently breakin’
And with my tears it goes tumblin’ to the floor

Once again the old town will be talkin’
Yes, Lord, I’ve seen the pity that’s in their eyes.
‘Cause they could never understand it’s her sorrow it’s not a man
Well no matter what they say we know she tried

Baby’s packed her soft things and she’s left me
I just know she did not mean to make me cry
It’s not her heart, Lord it’s her mind
She didn’t mean to be unkind

Why she even woke me up to say goodbye…

It’s not her heart, Lord it’s her mind
She just didn’t mean to be unkind
Why she even woke me up to say goodbye…

Write a song, a song
Write the song about her
Hum a tune, a tune
Hum a tune you miss her
Words that wouldn’t rhyme, wouldn’t rhyme, its over
Start another line, start a line a’new
She’s the kind of girl a man, Lord,
Remembers…
Remembers…
Remembers
She’s the kind of girl you’ve just got to love her
If you know her, and I knew her

Sitting in the dark, in the darkness of my room
I wonder why I look the sky, look the sky
Begins to softly cry
Morning you running through the grass
Through the sweet green morning dew
Clinging to her golden hair
I had to leave her.

Yesterday’s newspaper forecast no rain for today
Yesterday’s news was old news, the skies are all gray
Winter is in labor and soon will give birth to the spring
And sprinkle the meadow with flowers for my Angeline

Heartache and sorrow and sadness unendingly find
Wings on her memory with them she flies to my mind
She stretched her arms for a moment then went back to sleep
While morning stood watching me ever so silently weep

She opened her eyes lord the minute my feet touched the floor
The cold hardwood creaked with each step that I made to the door
There I turned to her gently and said, “Hon, just look its spring.”
Knowing outside the window the winter looked for Angeline

But yesterday’s newspaper forecast no rain for today…

Sitting in the dark, in the darkness of my room
I wonder why I look the sky
Look the sky, begins to softly cry
Morning you running through the grass
Through the sweet green morning dew
Clinging to her golden hair
I had to leave her.

For Sammi


My world is like a river as dark as it is deep
Night after night the past slips in and gathers all my sleep
My days are just an endless stream of emptiness to me
Filled only by the fleeting moments of her memory

Sweet memories
Sweet memories

She slipped into the silence of my dreams last night
Wandering from room to room she’s turning on each light
Her laughter spills like water from the river to the sea
Lord I'm swept away from sadness clinging to her memory

Sweet memories
Sweet memories

at times i feel i need the rain
at times i need the son
pleasure is a thread of pain
when it is undone

moments of insanity are never like a chain
i only know i am not free the nights when i am
sane

do not be concerned my love when you see me
cry
for laughter may not choose to free the happiness
inside

just as there may seem to be a smile that's out of
place

it only means
there is a pain
that hurts too much to
face

I was just about to sit a while
and have something to eat.
Even firey dragons do get
lonely occasionally.
Please do step inside.

Lord, them got no nothin’s got me down, down, down
My two-time flushin’ Mama’s Memphis bound, Memphis bound
With some good time Charlie, Lord, my truck and my best hound
She left me with ten acres of grow nothin’ Georgia ground

I got them come home lately’s
Go to bed early’s
Cuss and cry and kick and moan since you been gone
I got them come home lately’s
Go to bed early’s
Good God I miss that dog since they been gone

My get up and go got up and gone, gone, gone
Lord they took my pickup truck they done me wrong
If I could lay my calloused hands on them three thievin’ clowns
Well I’d sure plant me somethin’ in this burned up Georgia ground

I got them come home lately’s
Go to bed early’s
Cuss and cry and kick and moan since you been gone
I got them come home lately’s
Go to bed early’s
Good God I miss my truck…

You got to roll out
When the tide is rising high
You got to roll in
When the Sun's up in the sky
You got to roll on
When the water well runs dry
When the fire is in the kitchen
And the catcher's in the rye

I woke up this mornin'
I looked all around
Felt so broken hearted
I went and laid back down
I found her closet empty
And there upon the bed
I picked up the note she wrote
And this is what it said

Chorus

There's clothes there in the corner
And trash upon the floor
The stack of bills is high and all
But I don't work here no more
I didn't mean to hurt you
Didn't mean to be unkind
When you read this letter
You'd better read between the lines

Chorus

I didn't mean to hurt you
Just think of me sometimes
In your own words truly blue
A fool would only rhyme
The moral to this story is
If you don't love the blues
Do not choose to gamble
If you can't afford to lose

You gotta roll out
When the tide is ridin' high
You got to roll in
When the Sun's up in the sky
You gotta roll on
When the water well runs dry
I didn't mean to hurt you
I just thought I'd wave goodbye

Goodnight my love
Goodnight
May all your dreams come true
And may God be with you
Goodnight my love
Goodnight

Now close your sleepy eyes
And sail into the skies
When you awaken I’ll be there with you
Goodnight
Goodnight

Yes may God be with you
Goodnight my love
Goodnight

LOOKS LIKE THE SUN AIN'T GONNA SHINE

You left me this mornin'
Said you don't love me no more
I've been sittin' in the dark cryin'
Since you been gone
Can't even see my tears hit the floor
But I guess if I'm gonna wait up for the dawn
I'm gonna have to wait a long, long time
'Cause you said you'd love me, Baby
'Til the sun stopped shinin'
And it LOOKS LIKE THE SUN AIN"T GONNA SHINE

LOOKS LIKE THE SUN AIN"T GONNA SHINE, Babe
LOOKS LIKE THE SUN AIN"T GONNA SHINE
You said you'd love me
'Til the sun stopped shinin'
And it LOOKS LIKE THE SUN AIN"T GONNA SHINE

What did I ever do to you, girl
To make you want to hurt me so bad?
You said you would make me so happy
Well, I'm glad you didn't want to make me sad
Forever sure came early
Or I've lost all track of time
Yeah, you said you'd love me, Baby
'Til the sun stopped shinin'
And it LOOKS LIKE THE SUN AIN"T GONNA SHINE

Oh, I guess if I live to see another dawn
I'll have to live a long, long time
'Cause you said you'd love me, Baby
'Til the sun stopped shinin'
And it LOOKS LIKE THE SUN AIN"T GONNA SHINE
