Track Name: Rocks & Gravel
take some rocks and gravel baby
make a solid road
take some rocks and gravel baby
make a solid road
takes a good woman my mama
to satisfy my weary soul

have you ever been down the Mobil or KC line
have you ever been down that Mobil or KC line
I just wanna ask you one question
have you seen that gal of mine

don't that ol' moon look so lonesome
shinin' across the sea
don't that old moon look so lonesome
shinin' across that sea
don't my gal look so fine
when she's crawlin' after me

so take some rocks and gravel baby
pave a solid road
take some rocks and gravel baby
make a solid road
it takes a good woman my Lord Jesus
to satisfy my weary soul
Track Name: I'm Comin' Home
Head to Texas, the Alamo
Smoke Davy Crockett's tobacco
Crawl the Louisiana shore
hear Davy Jones is on the floor
North to Kansas to solve a crime
see where Capote got his rhymes

hear the whistle whine
hear freedom chime
I'm comin' home
hear the whistle whine
hear freedom chime
I'm comin' home

swam in the seas of the midwest
49 20 you know the rest
stuck in Florida Missouri
made a friend named Huckleberry
laid my head on buffalo jones
woke up in Colorado

hear the whistle whine
hear freedom chime
I'm comin' home
hear the whistle whine
hear freedom chime
I'm comin' home
I'm comin home
I'm comin' home
Track Name: Coonhound
I had a dream you were on the moon
drove 'round in circles
and prayed you'd come home soon
come home soon
I know I said it
doesn't mean the words are true

I had a dream you were in my room
hid under covers until the afternoon
you came too soon
I know I asked you to come
I guess I thought you had better things to do

went to the doctor about my dream
he handed me pills: yellow, red, and green
then he looked at me and said,
green's the new red if you know what I mean
's what he said

I had a dream you're a coon up a tree
looked down at me and waited so patiently
I could've called the hounds off
but I decided to sit and watch you bleed
said, could've called the dogs off
but I decided to sit there and watch you bleed
watch him bleed
Track Name: Desert Snow
it's not in the way you touch my chest
you don't
it's not the way that you look at me
it's the way that you won't
it's not the leather boots or your hair pulled back tight
it's not the thousand rivers that stand before you and I tonight

lie to me
tell me I'm the best
I could be so much more
but I'm so much less
I guess it's like praying for that desert snow
I guess I'll keep on praying for that desert snow

it's not that I feel guilty for
kidnapping you
my rotten dirty dreams rightly ransomed you
to give something up that you're gonna get back is bad
but it's hard as hell to give something up that you never ever had

so lie to me
tell me I'm the best
I could be so much more
but I'm so much less
I guess it's like praying for that desert snow
I guess I'll keep on praying for that desert snow
I guess I'll have to call you desert snow
desert snow
desert snow
I guess I'll have to call you desert snow
Track Name: Well, Well, Well
well well well
where did you come from
before I met you I thought I'd met 'em all
well well well

I actually knew you before I'd met you girl
we'd been each other's for a lifetime in another world
well well well

I'm like a coal on a locomotive train
black when I'm not burnin' and I ain't comin' back again
lucky for you this one's still on fire
just like the one that lights up your young green eyes
well well well

I want you to know that I want you too
I wanna squeeze you up and down 'til you're black and blue
well well well
I need you to make me whole again
even if it takes a scarlet sinner's grin
well well well

my mind is missing memories that you and I have shared
vacant but familiar like an empty rocking chair
when we sit securely like hawk's on summer's wind
I'll try not to miss you when I'm with you once again
well well well
Track Name: One Wing, Honey
I'm just that old churchyard shadow
I'm just that old town drunk
I'm not sayin' if you leave I'd go blind
what I'm sayin' is if stay I don't mind

you got one, one wing honey
ain't no money
ain't no money gonna buy you another one home
you got one wing honey
ain't no money, ain't no money gonna buy you another one home
Track Name: Moonshiner
I've been a moonshiner
For seventeen long years
I've spent all my money
On whiskey and beer
I go to some hollow
And sit at my still
And if whiskey don't kill me
Then I don't know what will
I go to some barroom
And drink with my friends
Where the women can't follow
And see what I spend
God bless them pretty women
I wish they was mine
Their breath is as sweet
The dew on the vine
Let me eat when I am hungry
Let me drink when I am dry
A dollar when I am hard-up
Religion when I die
The whole world's a bottle
And life's but a dram
When the bottle gets empty
It sure ain't worth a damn
I've been a moonshiner
For seventeen long years
I've spent all my money
On whiskey and beer
