Track Name: Crimes and Misdemeaners
As the sheriff rides up to the house
I think of how I’ll miss them
and I hope they’’ll member me for better things
Like how I held her little hands
and kissed her tiny face
and all the little songs we used to sing

But a man lies dead on the porch and his blood is on the grass

Now my father tells me son
you’ll have to pay for all your sins or else you’ll
have them visited upon your kin
I ran into the parlor and I
asked my little baby daughter
can you live with all your daddy did

The sheriff put his hand upon my shoulder and said son it’s time to go

when I’m gone sing a song
and please forgive the things I’ve done
just don’t forget me
please don’t forget me
Sing aloud sing and shout
I’ll be humble I’ll be proud
just don’t forget me
don’t forget me

As I sit here in this tiny cell
I’m waiting for the verdict and I’m
hoping that they’ll see my point of view
the man I shot he threatened all my
children and he told me that my
wife will beg that he would kill her too

so I put a bullet fast and deep into the evil place that the thought was formed

when I’m gone sing a song
and please forgive the things I’ve done
just don’t forget me
please don’t forget me
Sing aloud sing and shout
I’ll be humble I’ll be proud
just don’t forget me
don’t forget me

Now I’m standing in the gallows
underneath the nooses shadow
waiting for the pardon that won’t come
Jesus I’ve not asked for nothing
now I’m begging you for something
Keep my baby girls all safe and warm

give them all the peace and love that I myself couldn’t give them on my own

when I’m gone sing a song
and please forgive the things I’ve done
just don’t forget me
please don’t forget me
Sing aloud sing and shout
I’ll be humble I’ll be proud
just don’t forget me
don’t forget me
Track Name: Little Valentine
I sit here watching
you sit there watching everyone but me
so you can’t see me smile
but I know something
you’re beautiful and I’m not so I leave
and I wave goodbye

but someday
you will be my
little valentine

You’ll think I’m crazy
but I’m the one who calls you two
and I’m the one who’s breathing on the line
And someday maybe
you’ll feel for me the way I feel for you
and you will be my little valentine

I’m walking you home
I’m twenty steps behind so you can’t know
how you’re safe and warm
I just can’t help it
I need to know you’re happier than me
I need to know you’re sheltered from the storm

Now you turn and smile at me
I don’t know what to do
you say you’ve seen me watching you
and now you’re watching me
Track Name: Falling From My Arms
You lay beside me but we seem so far apart
I didn’t know the words I said would break your heart
I turn to tell you that you're beautiful to me
but my pride gets in the way.

I’ll sit here all night long
sing the same old songs
never looking back to see you
falling from my arms

the nights are longer
now that darling you’re not here
and now our distance can be measured in light years
I’m sending signals that you’ll probably never see
Please come back to me

I’ll sit here all night long
sing the same old songs
never looking back to see you
falling from my arms

and now you’re with some other guy
and all the things that he can buy
but does he know just how to make you smile
or does he make you cry

I’ll sit here all night long
sing the same old songs
never looking back to see you
falling from my arms
Track Name: Hero Down
Sending love
Across the only pathways he has known
Safe in flight
Surrounded by the clouds that he calls home

But on the ground
The secret’s that he guarded has been found
Now they’re out
He wakes to find he’s helpless gagged and bound

Superman is going to die
We’re watching as his cape’s falling from the sky
The villains have been organized
Their singing as the heroes widow cries

Now there he lay
On satin pillows colored red and gold
Forever gone
We’ll never know just our future holds

Superman has gone and died
We watched him as his
cape's falling from the sky
The villains have been organized
Their singing as the heroes widow dies


And he's never coming back
No he'sever coming back
No he's never coming back
We’re losing the war
To the men in black

Superman has gone and died
We watched him as his
cape's falling from the sky
The villains have been organized
Their singing as the heroes widow dies
Track Name: Love Down South
If I ever get a ticket back to New Orleans
I’m gonna buy myself a ticket back
I’m picking up the girl that broke my heart in two
I’m gonna take back to where I’m at.
I know my momma’s not so proud
of the girls I’ve brought around
but she’ll love the Coon ass girl
my heart has found

I’m spending my last dollar on a wedding ring
and I’m never ever looking back
the preacher looked at me and asked me if I do
I said you didn’t even have to ask

And now my momma looks so proud
as my daddy spins her round
and they love the coon ass girl
my heart has found
I've brought around

memories
made under
grandma’s tree
with the girl that's sweeter than wine

and the love we share
Doesn't even compare
To the love that we're making
Underneath the stars tonight

Now I vow to always make you smile
And I'll always try to go the extra mile
Just to bring everything your heart desires

memories
made under
grandma’s tree
with the girl that's sweeter than wine

and the love we share
Doesn't even compare
To the love that we're making
Underneath the stars tonight
Track Name: Stella
When I’ve had a day of sorrow
and I’m wishing for tomorrow
I can always count on to make me smile

You don’t care if I’m a loser
a convict or a boozer
I know you’ll always be right by my side

and you’ll always make me smile

let’s go running through the meadow
through the fields so golden yellow
and chase me til we fall onto the ground

Cause the afternoon is waning
and you know your dinner’s waiting
A payment for your unrestricted love
you’re unrestricted love

Stella you’re the only girl to ever see me cry
you gently lick away the tears and never ask me why
I know you’ll never understand just what you mean to me
Oh Stella can’t you see
Stella your the girl for me

I love your chocolate color
and green eyes like your mother
I love the way you turn and look at me

the way you’re always there to greet me
shake you’re tail and dance around me
unconditional your love is free
your love is free to me

Stella you’re the only girl to ever see me cry
you gently lick away the tears and never ask me why
I know you’ll never understand just what you mean to me
Oh Stella can’t you see
Stella your the dog for me

you’ll grow old and leave me here
my heart will go with you
if there’s a heaven made for dogs
Stella it was made
Stella it was made for you

Stella you’re the only girl to ever see me cry
you gently lick away the tears and never ask me why
I know you’ll never understand just what you mean to me
Oh Stella can’t you see
Stella your the dog for me
Track Name: Midwest Summer Nights
hello Momma
It’s Jimmy your favorite son
here’s my weekly letter
just one more and I’m done
I just can’t wait to see you
to tell you it’s all right
they say I’m coming home now
just one more lonely night

Oh no Momma,
there’s trouble on rise
as I sat here writing to you
the sky was set on fire
So I’m finishing this letter
with my rifle in my arms
and I’m praying they’ll give it to you
or I’ll make it back to the farm

As the sky falls down around us
I think of summer nights mid july
all the fire works above us
and daddy pulled us in and held us tight
I hope I’ll get another midwest summer night

Hello momma
I’m a friend my name is Jack
and I’m reading you this letter
cause Jimmy’s not coming back
he wants you to remember
he wants you to recall
the words he whispered to you
when he left home in the fall
Track Name: The Night The Lights Went Out
keeping time to the beat of the drum
the lights come up and I’m feeling so numb
I’m sweating bullets and my throat is kind of tight
I strike a chord and I scream out loud
the band responds like a punch in the mouth
and then I smile as I step into the light

and now i want to slow this down
before it all comes crashing down
in an all consuming fire that will kill us all
cause you know it never lasts
when were living way too fast
and before you know the lights go out and then were done

it’s almost over but it’s never done
we’re pushing ten and it's part of the fun
the crowd is roaring and I’m reaching for the sky
I count to 2 then three and the four
I jump up high then I fall on the floor
the lights go out and then I start to cry

and now i want to slow this down
before it all comes crashing down
in an all consuming fire that will kill us all
cause you know it never lasts
when were living way too fast
and before you know the lights go out and then were done

Now the second hand is turning fast
on the march of time that I just can’t make it last
I would rather burn out now
than fade away tonight

and now i want to slow this down
before it all comes crashing down
in an all consuming fire that will kill us all
cause you know it never lasts
when were living way too fast
and before you know the lights go out and then were done
Track Name: Montgomery Sunshine
When the city sleeps
She’s singing sweet sweet lullabys
the crickets chirp along to their favorite song
and when the sun should make it’s entrance
setting fire to the eastern sky
God will smile upon Montgomery
where our dreams reach to the sky

from the civil war
to just where Rosa stood her ground
Montgomery’s streets have often become battle grounds
but time has taught us something
about how to get along
now we hope we’re known for something
not just how we’ve been so wrong

The sun still shines here in Montgomery
Where dreams are still worth fighting for
Our roots are strong here in Montgomery
and our dreams are just as strong

the sun goes down
on big ol southern town
the river whispers secrets no one dares to tell
and the lights are shining through the windows
of the riverboat tonight
I’ll say my prayer on a bended knee
that Montgomery does alright

The sun still shines here in Montgomery
Where dreams are still worth fighting for
Our roots are strong here in Montgomery
and our dreams are just as strong

she’s more than just the spark for the bloody civil war
Like Dr King who showed us what’s worth fighting for
and we can thank good ole hank for the some songs to sing along

The sun still shines here in Montgomery
Where dreams are still worth fighting for
Our roots are strong here in Montgomery
and our dreams are just as strong

we’re not so big but we’re not so small
we won’t apologize for our southern drawl
in fact we’ll slow it down so you can understand
we’re not that place that you see on TV
and we’re really not bad won’t you come and see me
and you can smile upon Montgomery
where your dreams reach to the sky
Track Name: Your Smile (lights up the room)
well it’s time to sit and tell you
in a cute little song
bout the things I love about you
we can all sing along

first your youre silly little giggle
when I tickle you’re toes
or the way you call my name
I think my heart will explode

and your smile well it lights up the room

well you’re such a little cutie
you just don’t understand
how you you melt my heart with kisses
and when holding my hand

you jibber and you jabber
bout birds and the bees
you’re pickin all the flowers
and you give them to me

and your smile well it lights up the room

I want to hug you and to squeeze you
and to laugh and play with you every day
cause you’re really snuggly wuggly
and I love to hear the thing that you say
won’t you always say you love me
and be my lovey dovey I pray


you’re a pretty little princess
but you’ll soon be a queen
and you’re the cutest little princess
that I’ve ever seen

You’re growing up so fast
I think it’s melting my brain
If you grow another inch
I think we’ll all go insane

and your smile well it lights up the room
Track Name: I'm Tired
I’m tired
and I’m spent
I just lay my weary head
onto this lonely bed
whisper
in my ear
tell me you love me
then lay right beside me

I’ll dream of the day
when again here I’ll lay
as you sing
another lullaby
Track Name: As Seen on TV
Seven minutes til we
self destruct upon the
battlefield below
keep living in the
moments we’ve abandoned
til the second we blow

Now we shake shake shake and shudder
slip trip take another
drink if it helps you to sleep
just go ask your mother
girlfriend sister brother
they all want to believe
Cause they’ve seen it on TV


Five minutes as we
tumble towards our target
Four minutes to go
our fate is growing closer
like the ground below us
30 seconds to go

Now we shake shake shake and shudder
slip trip take another
drink if it helps you to sleep
just go ask your mother
girlfriend sister brother
they all want to believe
Cause they’ve seen it on TV

When we crash to the ground
and the fire and smoke fill up the sky
will you turn to your screens
just to see it on TV
no one will believe
til you tell them what they’ve seen
and the stars
make it a movie of the week

Now we shake shake shake and shudder
slip trip take another
drink if it helps you to sleep
just go ask your mother
girlfriend sister brother
they all want to believe
Cause they’ve seen it on TV
Track Name: Punk Rock Prom Queen
I remember when I saw you
I remember how you smelled
you were dressed up in lovely dress so white

I asked you if you’d kiss me
it was awkward but so right
your turned and put your lips on top of mine

run with me and hide
we’ll disappear into the night
where we can’t hear their whispers over ours

let’s fall into each others arms
and kiss away the blood and scars
tonight

your hair was tinted purple
your eyes were rimmed in black
The Nancy to my Sid and you were mine.
my gorgeous punk rock prom queen
you were stunning you were fine
I felt so lucky I felt so alive

run with me and hide
we’ll disappear into the night
where we can’t hear their whispers over ours

let’s fall into each others arms
and kiss away the blood and scars
tonight

I promise to be true to you
in good times and in bad
for richer or for poorer
you’re so rad
from this life and into the next
until the very end
I’ll always be right here to hold your hand
Track Name: A Galaxy Far Away
a boy from the desert dreams
while the stars are filled with rebel screams
and the droids carry secret plans
and a message from the princess hands
His whole world changed today
when Ben suggests they fly fly far away
the pirate and his furry friend
lead them fast into the empire’s hands


Ben gets killed by the man in black
The princess and her friends attack
flying into the death stars core
the boy from the desert scores in episode IV

the boy from the desert fights
on the planet with covered up in ice
and gets religion from the man in green
learning patience in the force unseen
the pirate and his furry friend
with the princess and the droids in hand
Fly across universe again
And again into the empires hands

the boy fights hard with the man in black
who steals his hand in a fierce attack
and tells him son you’ll be coming back
but next time you will call me dad

the boy from the desert’s back
to help the pirate and his friends attack
the slug who held the princesses hand
and the man eating hole in the sand
They gathered on the forest moon
and their furry little friends approve
the pirate and his furry friend
lead them once more to the empires hands


The father and the son unite
while the battle rages on outside
the rebels find their way inside
and the father says before he dies, son you’ve won the war
Track Name: Love Not Over the Hill
on the night when he first saw her
at the wedding of a friend
she was all the things he’d asked for
from the angel maker’s hands
but the 20 years between them
was a scandal and a sin
to the friends that stood around them
throwing stones into the wind

But the years they have between them
seem to vanish with the days
and the whispers and the haters voices
set their hearts ablaze
when she smiles he knows it’s worth it
when he holds her she’s content
and the love they share between them
must have been from heaven sent

When he sees her in the morning
when she’s standing in the door
the flaws she tries so hard to hide
makes him love her even more
she’s smart and she is beautiful
adventurous and fun
and the ways he says I love you
makes her know that he’s the one

But the years they have between them
seem to vanish with the days
and the whispers and the haters voices
set their hearts ablaze
when she smiles he knows it’s worth it
when he holds her she’s content
and the love they share between them
must have been from heaven sent

and they’re growing old together
and he may be older still
and he knows what they say cause he’s going grey
but he’s not yet over the hill

But the years they have between them
seem to vanish with the days
and the whispers and the haters voices
set their hearts ablaze
when she smiles he knows it’s worth it
when he holds her she’s content
and the love they share between them
must have been from heaven sent
