Western Sky 03:08
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.

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.

the Itch 03:43
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)

Montana 04:09
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.

Bird Song 04:14
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.

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.

Walk with Me 04:32
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.

Dusk 04:10
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?

Wanderer 04:52
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.

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.

Even Then 03:39
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.
