Track Name: Bring Flowers To My Grave
If I were in some dark hollow
If I were in some dark place
If never morning but always midnight
Id say "Mary please sing again"

If black water gathered round me
If green grass turned to snow
If a cold wind blew about me
Id say "Mary comes my time to go"

Well the bottle only ends in sorrow
The blade only yields pain
The barrel only sings of murder
And this war only brought shame

So Mary come lay beside me
When the doves begin to fly
Bring me three red red roses
And wont you lay them upon my grave
Track Name: Where I'll Be Tonight
I'm going out before the sun starts settin'
I'll be comin' back when it rise
And I'll walk these crooked streets til I'm forgotten
Thinkin' about the one I left behind

For I'll be dreamin' all the while she's still sleepin'
Layin' still in your mornin' bed
Then when I walk in and see you softly breathin'
On you'll turn your head and say "come on in"

[CH]
The winter winds are stinging lonesome
I'm walkin' the streets tryin' to show no pain
And where I'll be tonight there ain't no mistakin'
For I'll be knockin' at your door again

I passed a window but I could not see no reflection
I saw a sign on the street but I could not read what it said
I found a picture beneath my feet that reminded
Me of you who's layin' in bed

When the air of the evenin' stops its freezin'
And you can tell that the day is comin' soon
Like when the first mornin' birds start rustlin'
Singin' "where is my true love today"

[CH]
The winter winds are stinging lonesome
I'm walkin' the streets tryin' to show no pain
And where I'll be tonight there ain't no mistakin'
For I'll be knockin' at your door again
Track Name: Let's Dance
Let's dance
And let the callers keep callin'
Let our feet keep stompin'
Baby, let's dance

Let's move
And the jokers keep jokin'
Let the tokers keep tokin'
Baby, let's move

[CH]
When all our troubles
Come around again
Better hope that music keeps playin'
And take the dance

Let's ride
Like a hurricane's howlin'
Let our wheels keep growlin'
Baby, let's ride

And let's lay
Like cool water's 'round us
Like our hearts are boundless
Baby, let's lay

[CH]
When all our troubles
Come around again
Better hope that music keeps playin'
And take the dance

Let's dance
Through the crowd and the fury
Through the money and the glory
Baby, let's dance

Let's move
And let the liars keep lyin'
Keepin' the buyers buyin'
Baby, let's move

[CH]
When all our troubles
Come around again
Better hope that music keeps playin'
And take the dance
Track Name: Walkin' Down that Same Road
Walking down that same old road
Feeling bad again
All the friends I had
Don't know how long it's been

Since I seen blue skies and not gray
Since I've had money that wasn't spent
Since I've had friends that stuck around
Since I've had love that didn't end

[CH] But I ain't sayin' I'm givin' up
I ain't sayin' I'm a-touch the stuff
I'm just sayin' that
Long she came
And long she went

I was given life and nothing more
No roof above no floor below
No food to eat no place to sleep
Just cigarettes and whiskey

Now babe I tell ya the things I've done
I did 'em right or I've done 'em wrong
But if there's one thing I do now believe
The mistakes you make you've gotta keep

[CH] But I ain't sayin' I'm givin' up
I ain't sayin' I'm a-touch the stuff
I'm just sayin' that
Long she came
Long she came
And long she went
Track Name: By The Morning
By morning I will be gone again
I'll have had a good warm meal and slept in your good warm bed
Like rain is rain my tears they aint nothin more
I'll write you that letter when I know what it's for

Don't that sun
Look so lonesome
Sinkin' all alone

6 months have gone and fled over the hill
That house of leaves has begun to build
So I'll light a match and throw it upon the frame
And as it turns to ash I'll be back on my way

Don't that fire
Make your cold hopes tire
But don't it light your way

Ive counted the minutes, the hours, and the days
I've counted the houses, the cities, and every step I've made
But bound by hope my thirst it ain't never filled
So tomorrow and yesterday I'll leave upon the hill

As I'm laid down
In my burdens I'll drown
For what you've built you have made
And it don't never change
Track Name: Down to Caroline
Hear that train
Roll down that line
Taking my babe down to Caroline
Down to Caroline

Hear that whistle
Plays a lonesome song
To the man on the platform
Trying to hold on to what he forgot
Going down to Caroline

And hear that sparrow
Singing free
Though nobody knows
He ain't where he wants to be

Blowin' down them railroad tracks
My good gal's leavin'
And she aint looking back
From Caroline

The moon shown bright
The night I fell alone
My heart was weighin' down
Like a stone
Being thrown to Caroline

And hear that sparrow
Singing free
Though nobody knows
He ain't where he wants to be

I dreamed a long black dress
And a long black veil
I come into town aint a soul
Left there
Down in Caroline

And hear that sparrow
Singing free
Though nobody knows
Though nobody knows
He ain't where he wants to be
Track Name: The Wild In the Heart
The wild in a heart
Can get smokey

And that smoke can blind
More than just a fool

On the days you wake up
Feelin' lonely

Hey hey mama
What're you gonna do

For a walk down the road
Can leave you dusty

Turn your new clothes old
Too soon

Can a young heart
Be trusted

Cause hey hey mama
He trusted you

So if you speak, speak kindly
Or say nothing

And if you hear, hear every lie
Not just every truth

And if fear fear love
and not forgiveness

Cause hey hey mama
Hey hey mama
He was good to you
