Track Name: Crimes and Misdemeanors
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: 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: Lie to Me (one more time)
Holding hands
waiting for your train
One more chance to try to change your mind
As the moments slip away I turn to
Look you in the eye
Will you kiss me I ask
One more time

No one looks at me like you
None as beautiful as you
Tonight
Say you love me
and you'll come back to me
It's alright
Lie to me one more time

I watch the clock
As the seconds click away
Your putting on your lipstick for the day
And you smile like you do and I know
You're already gone
Please look at me
One more time

No one looks at me like you
None as beautiful as you
Tonight
Say you love me
and you'll come back to me
It's allright
Lie to me one more time
Whistle blows
And it's time for you to go
No more time to try to change your mind
And you tell me you'll return but I know
You'll be gone for good
You kiss my lips
One last time

No one looks at me like you
None as beautiful as you
Tonight
Say you love me
and you'll come back to me
It's alright
Lie to me one more time
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: Tonight
lie still don’t say a word
the world’s asleep tonight
the things you’ve said won’t seem so bad
in golden morning light
we’ll have a drink
some time to think
we’ll waste away tonight

Calm down
let’s just remember tonight
no looking back
there’s nothing worth bringing to light
let’s burn all these pictures
and scatter the these ashes tonight

the fireflies are so alive
the grass is soaked with dew
let’s ditch our clothes
and take a swim
it’s only me and you
the waters warm
let’s be reborn
waste away the night

Calm down
let’s just remember tonight
no looking back
there’s nothing worth bringing to light
let’s burn all these pictures
and scatter the these ashes tonight

Save all good thoughts
and throw out the old
there’s no room for cobwebs
just memries of gold
I’m asking forgiveness for all that I’ve done
now let’s just get back to the fun


time’s up
oh sleepy head
the evening’s come and gone
your mother called
she’s so concerned
she says it’s been too long
Track Name: In Montgomery
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: Ugly
Ugly awkward and frail
dressed up in rags looking so pale
lonely barely alive
I’m a loser, born to fail
but I’m hoping you’ll see me
as I watch you dance here tonight
Angel what can I say
I'm a sucker for your face
Please may I have this dance
Oh Angel take my hand
I’m hoping you’ll save me
from failing again tonight

and we’ll twist turn and shake all night
I’ll be happy for one moment in time

first dance you were so fine
my lovely valentine
soft skin pressed against mine
our sweaty hands combine
I know it’s not real
you’re just trying so hard to be nice

and we’ll twist turn and shake all night
I’ll be happy for one moment in time

Angel please, just one more time
feel your heart beat against mine
DJay please don’t turn on the lights
Angel might see me and ruin the rest of the night

and we’ll twist turn and shake all night
I’ll be happy for one moment in time
Track Name: Goodnight Sunshine
How are you feeling tonight
under the spell of a chemical high
your eyes start to sparkle your smile is so wide
it’s only a matter of time

under these thin sheets you lie
Wrapped up in cotton and sensors and wires
you ask for a pencil and you start to write
you told me it was alright
you said

Goodnight sunshine
don’t cry I’m fine
I’ll see you again when it comes your time
so sing a lullaby

your laughter is making me cry
I’m counting the breaths that you take as you fight
I try to be strong but my eyes are on fire
you point to your words and you smile

Goodnight sunshine
don’t cry I’m fine
I’ll see you again when it comes your time
so sing me a lullaby

You’ve passed the ceiling
on the wings of an angel
you never turned back
I want to lay here
in the warmth that fading
from your lovely face

Goodbye sunshine
don’t cry I’m fine
I’ll see you again when it comes your time
so sing me a lullaby
Goodnight sunshine
don’t cry I’m fine
I’ll see you again when it comes your time
so sing me a lullaby
Track Name: The Island
When I look on the crashing waves
I think how they’ve made us slaves
we’re just living out today
on the compost of yesterday

the barons they love to play
on the backs of the underpaid
at least that’s what we used to say
on the top of the heap today

The sun goes down
on this sleepy seaside town
and the surf is singing me to sleep tonight
the wind and rain
won’t bother me again
til I wake up knowing everything's alright

Now I’m back to the island way
I traded my car away
for a bike and a boat today
on this island I’ll pass away

The sun goes down
on this sleepy seaside town
and the surf is singing me to sleep tonight
the wind and rain
won’t bother me again
til I wake up knowing everything's alright


One small step
toward the limits
toward the limits

Could we build
everything we love
right here
Track Name: The Day You Walk Away
watching you sleep
taking little breaths
and I think
can I teach you things
I’ve only now just learned

I’m holding tight throughout the ride
you turn to tell me it’s alright
I hope you know it’s worth the fights
we’ll fight
the day you walk away

One prayer for your love
one prayer for your time
and I pray
you will understand
I’m really on your side

I’m holding tight throughout the ride
you turn to tell me it’s alright
I hope you know it’s worth the fights
we fight
the day you walk away

One heartbeat away
One step to the edge
of the world
and these crashing waves
won’t bring you peace tonight

You’re holding tight throughout the night
I turn to tell you it’s alright
I hope you know it’s worth the fight
we fight
the day you walk away

You’re holding tight throughout the ride
I turn to tell you it’s alright
I hope you know it’s worth the fights
we fight
the day you walk away
Track Name: The Song You'll Never Hear
Here's another song
That you'll probably never hear
These loving words are
Falling on deaf ears
All the things I love about you
They won't make you smile today
Cause you'll never even read the things I say

So feel free to sing along
To the song you'll never hear
It could use your pretty voice
To bring a tear
I wish that you could know
All the things I feel inside
But I know you'll never hear it in this song

But if I should pass away
you’ll read every word I pray
and my ghostly voice will sing you right to sleep
and you’ll member all the ways
that I tried so hard to say
you were always so perfect in my eyes

So feel free to sing along
To the song you'll never hear
It could use your pretty voice
To bring a tear
I wish that you could know
All the things I feel inside
But I know you'll never hear it in this song
Track Name: One More Time
It’s worth looking back on
the moments in time
with friends and the folks in our lives
so lets take a minute
we’ll all sing a line
One more time

The songs that we’ve written
bout women and friends
and songs bout our
past and our kin
it’s brought us together
let’s do it again
one more time

one more time
one more time
let’s all gather round
let’s all make a sound
one more time

The year’s about over
just moments until
and every year gets shorter still
but let’s gather round
let’s all make a sound
one more time

one more time
one more time
let’s all gather round
let’s all make a sound
one more time

and if nobody listens
I guess that’s just fine
as long as I have you
on the back line
So let’s raise a toast
to the memories we made
and we’ll twirl round our lovers
now let’s promenade
let’s rock this one last time.

one more time
one more time
let’s all gather round
let’s all make a sound
one last time

I’m just an old punk
with this guitar in hand
and here at this mic I will stand
when this is all over
I’ll do it again
one more time
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
