Hey Joe

Hey Joe I know you're workin on your college fund
Saving up to chase women in the college sun
I hope you really make it, hope you be someone
But you're scared of the dark I don't care where you're from

Hey Joe get a case of chevys gonna sip some
Drop a line on top the levy, maybe burn one
And I know you like the women with their skin in the sun
But you're scared of the dark I don't care where you're from

It's OK Joe, it's been a long day
And it's not your fault
Some of this work just aint gonna get done

Hey Joe it's picture perfect then it turns round
Poka-dots up on your curtains on the floor now
And I know you don't deserve to be let down
Gotta stay out of the dark

It's OK Joe, it's been a long day
And it's not your fault
Some of this work just aint gonna get done

Hey Joe, I got one more question
How does it feel, to spit that love into a microphone?

Going To The Country

Goin' to the country
Get a little lonely in my mind
Feeling kinda funky
Need to find peace among the pines
No I'm not a junkie
But I get high from time to time
No I'm not a junkie
But I get high and bide my time

Goin' to the country
Pull my hat down off the shelf
Need a little somethin'
That I can hold onto myself
Hear a little thunder
Guess it's time we bid farewell
Hear a little thunder
Chase it like a dog, I think I will
Chase it like a dog, I think I will

And it's clear that you can't see
You were wrong sometimes
And it's clear that you can't see
You were wrong sometimes

Goin' to the country
Couple of acres in a beat up Ford
Do a little runnin'
Reminisce and let the days unfold
Couldn't get what I wanted
So I cut out down along that road
Finally get what I wanted
Hey darlin' think I'm almost gone
Hey darlin' think I'm almost gone

And it's clear that you can't see
You were wrong sometimes
And it's clear that you can't see
You were wrong sometimes

And it's clear that you can't see
You were wrong sometimes
And baby it's clear that you can't see
You were wrong, oh, sometimes
Sometimes

Full Moon Song

Oh moon, full moon
Won't you come home soon?
For the night is so dark
And the stars are so lonesome without you

Oh moon, full moon
Shed your light on the room
For the night's almost over
The sun will be comin' up soon

Oh moon
Lit by the light of the night, oh
Lit by the light of the night
Lit by the light of the night, oh
Oh, full moon

So Cool

Feel like a fool
When you're happy snap your fingers
Along to your favorite song
You look so cool when you do that
Feels so good that you can do no wrong

We hate the law
We hate those rules they made for us
Bent them all
Cause breakin' rules is just so cool for us

Spent last fall pickin' apples
Off of the tree
Under the
Remindin' me of pickin' apples
You fell out of the tree
And into my arms

We hate the law
We hate those rules they made for us
Bent them all
Cause breakin' rules is just so cool for us

And oh last Christmas
Oh, I shoulda kissed you
And I was so afraid for the longest time
Think that I missed you

We hate the law
We hate those rules they made for us
Bent them all
Cause breakin' rules is just so cool for us

26

Well I found out yesterday
That I'm in love
And I don't know what else to say
But thank you Lord
For that sundress on that Saturday
Walking barefoot down the beach

Smell of the rain up in the air
Smell the flowers in her hair
And I swear on my life
If you need a joke I'll be there
You need a smoke here take my spare
I always thought that you were fine

So what do ya say when we're 26
We'll get married just for kicks and
Move out to Alaska way up there
Get a job stacking bricks
Stay at home with the kids and
I'll bring the bacon back home to you girl
Making the best of this world

So what do ya say when we're 26
We'll get married just for kicks and
Move out to Alaska way up there
Get a job stacking bricks
Stay at home with the kids and
I'll bring the bacon back home to you girl

You never knew how to tell a lie
I'll be an honest man till I die
You know this young love
Has got me high, has got me high
Making the best of this life

Autumn Leaves

I was always born to run, got a heart shaped like an apple in the middle of my chest
Call myself a goof man's son, swinging off the hinges trying to be one
And it goes like this
I can't help it now, Autumn leaves
Wear my hat, you unbutton, Oh if you knew the spot you've got me in
Make me feel as if I'm king, Oh I love that eerie song you sing
'Cause it goes like this
I can't help it now, Autumn leaves
What can I tell you at the end of a line?
How could I tell, you said it at the same time
Call my bluff and draw your gun, I have always known I'd knew the person who'd kill me
As the see reflects the sun, seems we've heard the last of that Cherokee drum
And it goes like this
I can't help it now, Autumn leaves
What can I tell you at the end of a line?
How could I tell, you said it at the same time

Mi amor, no esta aqui
Mi amor, no esta aqui
Mi amor, no esta aqui
Mi amor, no esta aqui

Common Man

Common man, six foot tall he stands
Waiting on his date to some company party in France
And she's late, the boss man said "a quarter till eight"
And as nine rolled around at his watch he's looking down, the ticking fate
Oh the funny thing about love is it makes you wait

He wore his good shoes, now he's walking them home with the homesick blues
Feeling like he fucked up, it's all right he'll get back up because he chooses to
His over-coat, speckled with snow he walks alone
Just then he turns his head and sees a girl of which they said the poets wrote

Don't hesitate my dear, don't wait put it all on the line
I'm a leap of faith my dear, and I'm slipping down your spine
I will wait my dear till I'm dead or the end of my time
Or you let me know you're mine

He went insane; oh the thoughts of her tortured his brain
So he re-traced his steps so he would not forget where she'd been
But she was gone, just the scent of her lingered on
So he lived all of his days with his head stuck in a maze half stoned

Don't hesitate my dear, don't wait put it all on the line
I'm a leap of faith my dear, and I'm slipping down your spine
I will wait my dear till I'm dead or the end of my time
Or you let me know you're mine. Or you let me know you're mine

Just Wonderin

Listening in her Volvo, said she didn't go
She didn't go, now she's gone
She didn't go, didn't leave a note

Somewhere in Nevada, they said she drank the water
Now somebody's daughter is never coming home
She didn't leave a note

The line was tight (line was tight)
Time was right (time was right)
To hit the road (hit the road)
Come on let's go (go, go)
She's living nice
She's living right there on the coast
Just wonderin' is this the way he must go

Got up outta Gokan, pitched herself in Bocain
Stopped by a road man, had to keep on going
Find herself a nice man, like she know she can

Found a boy like the old time, said he liked to spend time
With fireplace and red wine, maybe an early bedtime
Oh he'll draw a fine line, for a fine act girl

He'll treat you right (treat you right)
He'll be polite (be polite)
Most every night (every night)
Make you a wife, oh
You'll look so good in white
Just wonderin' is this the way to spend your life

Woman got a PI, I tracked her down in Big Sky
Don't turn away, get hogged tied, people get by on white lies
He just stood there wide-eyed when he saw that girl

Yeah she was standing smiling, his eyes widening
Oh what perfect timing, no time for hiding
The words he couldn't find 'em, so he just said hi

I'll treat you right (treat you right)
I'll be polite (be polite)
Most every night (every night)
Make you my wife, oh
You'll look so good in white
Just wonderin' what I could say to make you mine

Song For A Friend

When all of your life
You've been alone
And you have found that it takes time
To heal the wounds of love

Don't throw it all out baby
You're good for another round
Don't throw it all out baby
You're good for another round

And all things you've tried
You're no good
You've got a lot on your mind
So misunderstood

Don't let yourself go crazy
You're good for another round
Don't let yourself go crazy
You're good for another round

It's just luck, ooh hoo
It's just luck, ooh hoo
Only luck, ooh hoo
And it hurts

And all of the times
You've tried and failed
Good luck came, deep inside
To get your point since you did not get

Don't count yourself out baby
You're good for another round
Don't count yourself out baby
You're good for another round

It's just luck, ooh hoo
It's just luck, ooh hoo
Only luck, ooh hoo
And it hurts

Books

'Member when we were riding in your car
Not thinkin' 'bout much, didn't get too far
Nineteen miles til the gas ran out
And I ain't never walked that far before

It tastes like candy and cigarettes
And at that point, hadn't tasted anything better yet
Got that love that can make a man
Got those eyes, make a man forget
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh

Say you love me all the way
Say that you love me, you do
Say that you'll call me every single day
Place a phone call for you
And I'll let you listen to my favorite tapes
Playing my tapes right through
Say you love me all the way
Hey, yeah, hey, yeah, hey, yeah-yeah

She said I'll try to help you if I can
And after all this time, you're still the man
We're just books upon a shelf
Try to understand this if you can

And then she gives like a bubble bath
Oh, I love it when you laugh
Rain like pennies in a tin can
There's only one question left to ask
Whoa-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-whoa

Do you love me all the way
Say that you love me, you do
Say that you'll call every single day
Place a phone call for you
And I'll let you listen to my favorite tapes
Playing my tapes right through
Say that you love me all the way

Say that you love me all the way
Say that you love me, you do
Say that you'll call every single day
Place a phone call for you
And I'll let you listen to my favorite tapes
Playing my tapes right through
Say that you love me all the way
Hey, yeah, hey, yeah, hey, yeah-yeah

Strawberries

Be my mind
Don't like to think for myself all of the time
And be my soul
Look into these eyes like no one before
Be my light
Sunrise laughing cause we stayed up all night
Be my map
We'll leave with all the treasure we can grab

Be my lake
Summer sand and a strawberry milkshake
And be my pride
Stay under my skin, don't let me take what is not mine
Be my house
Strong and sturdy far from town oh
Be my home
Just think of all the places we'll go

Be my blood
Oh I'd shoot the moon and it wouldn't be enough
And be my books
Head on your shoulders with damn good looks
Be my hands
And I'll paint your picture darling the best I can
Be my heart
I've got you in the end, I wish I had you from the start

Send The Fisherman

This one goes out to my lovely friends
Dark rooms could not dim your innocence
An island in the sun is all we're looking for
And in this sea of sharks we're just swimmin'

Pushed off the beaches knowing all too well
There were cracks in the wood and tissue paper sails
The storm came on a run, we knew that we were done
Sat there laughing at the situation

Somebody save us, somebody save our ship
Somewhere off of the coast out in the Atlantic
And assure yourself my friend we cannot quit this now
The ship is gone and I think it's time we swam

Somebody save us, somebody get here quick
Send the coast guard, the navy and the fisherman
And assure yourself my friend we are shit outta luck
So I'm sleepin' at the bottom of the ocean sinking slow
Feel the pull and the motion of things you think that you know

Wait it's ok
Haven't we been here before
Haven't we been here before
And I said hey, what's your name
'Cause we can swim right back into shore
Kickins' what these feet are for, oh yeah
