Track Name: Western Sky
I'm headed out west to another place
With amber and yellow and purple shades
The air is clean and the sky's so big
Going to the Rocky Mountains
Stuck in a city
Concrete walls
Hear myself think
Hear myself talk
Put me on a train
Never be the same
Workin so hard in vain
And I wanna go home.

I'm headed out west to another place
With amber and yellow and purple shades
The air is clean and the sky's so big
Going to the rocky mountains
Put me on a train
Never be the same
Working so hard in vain and I wanna go home.
I wanna go home.
ooo, I wanna go home.

I'm headed out west to another place
With amber and yellow and purple shades
The air is clean and the sky's so big
Going to the rocky mountains
Put me on a train
Never be the same
Working so hard in vain and I wanna go home.
I wanna go home.
ooo, I wanna go home.
Track Name: Appalachian Blues
Mountains and caves, rocks and creeks
Wildflowers growin in the weeds
Mountain Music, blackberry wine
A place of spirits
Both dark and divine.

Sunday mornin
Prayers start risin
Just like the steeples on the hills you can almost see 'em
Colors of red and orange and green
And when everyone starts singin
Oh, its something to see.

My old baby he was from the Kentucky hills
His mama was sweet
And his daddy paid the bills
Grew up runnin wild
Shooting guns and raising hell.
He looked right in my eyes and said,
"I dont' have nothin to sell"

I lost myself on that long country drive
Forgot myself when I looked in your eyes
Nothing seemed to matter
When I was loving you.
But, it wasn't too long
I was singin those Appalachian blues.

Forgotten treasures
Diamonds in the rough
Growing in the hollers
Rising from the dust
Rooted in the mountains
The oldest ones you'll ever see
Sweet, dusty Appalachia
You're good enough for me
Sweet, dusty Appalachia
You're good enough for me.
Track Name: the Itch
I got an itch I can't scratch
It's driving me crazy
Its driving me mad
This town is like a poison to my soul
I got my bags packed
I got my belly feed
I got a little bit of music and a little bit of bread
I can't wait to finally get on the road.

Tounges are waggin
Gossip and lies
All people do is criticize
This town don't do nothin but make me blue.
I got some show boots
I got a new suit
I got a little bit of lovin and a little bit of loot
Everything else?
Well, it kinda depends on you.

Oh, Carolina
Arkansas, Tennesseee
If I go out there and find ya
Would you spend your money to see me?

I'll play on your porch or in your room
I wasn't born with a silver spoon
Tell me where you want me and thats where I'm gonna go
'Cos I got some wishes, I got some dreams
Yah, I got a whole lot of things
And I got a hankerin to tell ya what I know.

Oh, Carolina
Arkansas, Tennessee
If I go out there and find ya
Would you spend your money to see me? (repeat)

'Cos I got an itch I can't scratch
It's driving me crazy; its driving me mad
Somethin tells me I wasn't born to be here.
I gotta get going, I gotta start trying
I gotta start living before I start dying
I'm gonna catch the next boat outta here.

Oh, Carolina
Arkansas, Tennessee
If I go out there and find ya
Would you spend your money to see me? (Repeat)
Track Name: Montana
I got a man on my heart
I'm headed out west.
I got my boots and my scarf,
My bullet proof vest.
I got Saffron in the car
A stone in my chest.
I got 20 hours to go
I'm not stoppin to rest.

I wrote 500 letters I'll probably never send
And I'm headed to Montana
Where I aint ever been.
I thought for sure you'd call me
On the telephone.
But don't bother callin now, baby
I won't be home.

I've been love's martyr one too many times
Tied myself to the cross
And taken a beating for your crimes
But now I'm smarter
And stronger too
And I'll be raising from the dead
And coming back to haunt you.

I'm no angel
I'm too human for that
Just look at my scars
And the way my odds are stacked
And I'm headed to Montana
To fill my money sack.
Don't bother looking for me now, baby
I won't be back.

I'm goin; I'm goin
I'm goin
Aint never coming back
I'm goin; I'm goin
I'm going
Aint never turning back.

Headed in, sunset over the hill
Tears fill my eyes
Liberated from a life that kills
Looking ahead and not turning back
In case I turn into a pillar of salt
Don't wanna disappear like that.

I really love you, baby
I'll never be the same
And you know I always will
That ain't ever gonna change
I'm headed to Montana before I go insane
If you're happy without me
Don't even speak my name.
Don't even speak my name.
Aint never comin back.
Track Name: Bird Song
Gonna sing you a song that the birds don't even know
Gonna write you a letter in my heart
Its gonna drip so sweet and slow
From my mouth to your soul
Its the kind of song you can't stop once it starts.

Deeper than the ocean
And endless as the sky
Clearer than a church bell tone
It's the kind of song
You and I can sing until we die
Its a song that the birds don't even know.

There's a heart in my chest and it whispers in my ear
And it tells me all the things I need to know
And a melody so sweet
Starts coming out of me
Its the kind of song angels don't know.

Deeper than the ocean
And endless as the sky
Clearer than a church bell tone
Its the kind of song
You and I can sing until we die
Its a song that the birds don't even know.

Darlin, if we ever part it will surely break my heart
But the song will still ring purer than gold
If you ever have a doubt about the love we share now,
You can listen to the song the birds don't know.

Deeper than the ocean
And endless as the sky
Clearer than a church bell tone
Its the kind of song
You and I can sing until we die
Its a song that the birds don't even know.

A song that the birds don't even know.
Track Name: Stoney Ground
I've gotta protect myself from possession
'Cause you are dangerous, I learned.
And some things are too wet to burn.

Our love's a seed blown by the wind
I tried my very best to be your friend.
We'll never make roots to go down
Not while we are here on stoney ground.

And when I think of you, what I think of
Is a very beautiful mirage
Shaped just like love.

You are a seed blown by the wind.
Ive tried my very best to be your friend.
You'll never make roots that go down
Not while you are there on stoney ground.

I wish I could just fix you; I would kiss you until you felt the sun
I wish you would embrace me too
But I know you're always gonna run.

I am a seed blown by the wind.
I know I'll never be the same again.
And one day I'll make roots that go down
But not while I am here on stoney ground.
Stoney ground.
Track Name: Walk with Me
Blue-eyed man, I'm your friend
I wanna be there until the end
Take that veil from your eyes.
I'm tired of love in disguise.
You aint been movin
You're just counting sheep
And you should be going for a walk with me.

Blue-eyed man, I'm just a girl
With all the love in the whole wide world.
Take that scarf off your mouth
Speak your heart
Let it out
You aint been movin
Your feet are growing weeds
And you should be going for a walk with me.

Blue-eyed man, I'm just like you
Seen my share of pain, frustration too
Take that sheet off your face
Welcome to a new time and place
The winds of change are blowing in the breeze
And you should be going for a walk with me.

Blue-eyed man, dressed in black
You're gonna give me a damn heart attack
Take those gloves from your hand
I can't wait forever for you to understand
That I'm running late
But I thought I'd wait and see
If you'll be going for a walk with me.
Track Name: Dusk
I've been thinking about you lately.
I've been thinking about you, baby.
Are you happy? Are you safe?
Do you smile everyday,
Like I hope you do?
I've been thinking about you.

I've been missing you, my darling.
It seems no one sees me like you do.
The more and more that time goes by me,
The more and more I know its true.

And when you look up at the stars in some far away sky
Does your heart ache a little bit like mine?
And when you see those purple mountains
Painted in the dusk
Does your mind begin to wander to us?

I'm not saying I'm unhappy.
I'm not saying I'm not strong.
There's been lovers who have touched me
It seems no one's touched me for this long.

And when you look up at the stars in some far away sky
Does your heart ache a little bit like mine?
And when you see those purple mountains
Painted in the dusk
Does your mind begin to wander to us?
Track Name: Wanderer
I've been up north
I've been down south
I still don't know what life is all about.
I've seen the cotton fields
I've felt the prairie wind
I've seen the city lights
I've made a lot of friends.

I've travelled by car
Travelled by plane
Travelled on foot
I've seen a lot of things
Will I ever find what I'm looking for?
I'm a wanderer
On a desert shore.

Oh, I think I saw home once.
I think I saw home once in someone's eyes.
Oh, but I couldn't touch it.
I couldn't taste it
Because it wasn't right.
I'm gonna keep on wandering
You're gonna keep on flickering that ole light
My ship may never reach a harbor
But that's okay
I'll be a wanderer
I've been wanderin all my life.

I really love you.
This is the life I chose.
And there's a part of me
Nobody really knows.
My heart gets heavy.
My mind starts sinkin.
I wanna get in the car and never stop driving.

Oh, I think I saw home once.
I think I saw home once in someone's eyes.
Oh, but I couldn't touch it.
I couldn't taste it
Because it wasn't right.
I'm gonna keep on wandering
You're gonna keep on flickering that ole light
My ship may never reach a harbor
But that's okay
I'll be a wanderer
I've been wanderin all my life.

So many letters
Drowned in the sea
Hand-written letters
From you and me.
I sailed away
And I don't know why.
Now, all I can do is hang my head and cry.

Oh, I think I saw home once.
I think I saw home once in someone's eyes.
Oh, but I couldn't touch it.
I couldn't taste it
Because it wasn't right.
I'm gonna keep on wandering
You're gonna keep on flickering that ole light
My ship may never reach a harbor
But that's okay
I'll be a wanderer
I've been wanderin all my life.
Track Name: Delicate Thing
Your mind is something you wear on your face
You let your thoughts stay open 'cause you're unashamed of who you are.
I know that's hard.

Sure, that's a noble concept
But open doors are subject to too much traffic wearing out their floors
What I'm trying to say
Is dont' you give it away.

And don't forget your heart.
Don't forget your heart.
Dont' forget your heart.
'cause its a delicate thing.

You're so easy to love and so hard to know.
You play the Russian roulette with your own soul
What I'm trying to say
Start taking care of yourself.

There's burn holes in your carpet
And on your couch
From fires someone started
And left you to put out.
What I'm trying to say,
Stop blaming yourself.

And don't forget your heart.
Don't forget your heart.
Don't forget your heart.
'Cause its a delicate thing.

Why do I always have to spell it out for you?
When you act so self destructive,
It breaks my heart in two
I wanna steal you away
and take you some place warm and safe.

Why do I always feel like you're pushing me away?
Is it 'cause I can see some deep things that aren't on display?
I wanna steal you away and take you some place warm and safe.

And don't forget your heart.
Don't forget your heart.
Don't forget your heart.
'Cause its a delicate thing.
Track Name: Even Then
I will love you when the sky turns black
And the clouds come rolling in
And I will shelter you from the thunder claps.
Yes, I will love you even then.

I will love you when the flowers die
As the cold pierces their skin.
I will hold you and sigh, and pray, and cry
'Til you see them bloom again.

'Cause love's how I'm made
And love's how were saved
And love has brought me this far
And despite what you've heard
It's what you deserve
And I will love you with all of my heart.

Others have gone and left you alone
Hurt you and broken your heart
But they were so blind
To leave you behind
And they didn't know who you are.

'Cause love's how I'm made
And love's how were saved
And love has brought you this far
And despite what you've heard
Its what you deserve
And I will love you with all of my heart.
