Feels Like Home

There's something in my heart
And it feels like fire
There's a yearnin' in the river
and it feels like home.
Take me down, take me down to the water
I need time
Give me time

The old Shenandoah gonna keep me right
And hold me like I was forgiven
Take me down, and let the beachwood light
I need time
Give me time

Oohh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

Tellin' myself to keep good faith
There ain't much these days to celebrate
Pullin' my hoodie over my face

I need time
Give me time

Oohh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

Take my name when I'm dead and gone
And throw my ashes in the river
Know that I lived my whole life long
And gave all the love that I could've given

Oohh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

Keep the Blues Away

I got lost down in Rio
I was running from the FBI
Yeah they had me on some charges back in San Antone
You know I never got the reason why
I turned up in a casino
My hands up and ready to fight
The whole damn mariachi band, for playing the same tune twice

I get high cause I want to
I get low everyday
I get high cause I want to
Gotta do something
To keep the blues away

You know last time that I seen her
My girl was lookin' mighty fine
Starin' through the glass at a police station
Just tryin' hear the end of the line
I know I said it and I mean it
I am tryin' to change my life
But when times get tough
Yeah the tough get hard
You can cut me with a butter knife

I get high cause I want to
I get low everyday
I get high cause I want to
Gotta do something
To keep the blues away

I get high cause I want to
I get low everyday
I get high cause I want to
Gotta do something
High cause I want to
Low everyday
High cause I want to
Gotta do something
To keep the blues away

No Sleep

Oh I saw a shooting star
Late last night
Yeah she was pointing at the west coast
Beamin' like a street light
Got my white denim jacket
And my bolo tie
Snuck past mom and dad and told my little brothers goodbye

Oh I hear a motor car
Coming up the coast
You know I've seen other cities but I like this one most
There's a girl down the valley says that we can take it slow
Or we can push fast forward on it
Love success and rock and roll

But it gets hard sometimes
Don't I know it
I been up for a week
I can't get no sleep
I lose my cool

Oh I saw a shooting star
Late last night
She's like vanilla ice cream, baby
Milky white
I wanna love her all day
And all of the night
I wanna love her all day
For the rest of my life

And it gets hard sometimes
Don't I know it
I been up for a week
I can't get no sleep
I lose my cool
I been up for a week
I can't get no sleep
I lose my cool
Say what you mean babe
C'mon and tell it to me

Shoobie doobie doowah

Peach Fuzz

I was in the corner
Drinking from the punch
Yeah you were in the kitchen
Cuttin' up a rug
No need to complicate it
I had fallen in love
With you, so underrated
Something fillin' up my lungs
Every color of your love I've seen enough I want another
Every color of your love I've seen enough I want another

Hey little mamma when you talk back
I see your eyes light up
And I love that
I'm just a peach fuzz boy I'm so alone
No I don't wanna miss you honey
Come home

Knock knock you're coming over
Couple times a week
Hanging on my shoulder
Shaking like a leaf
Every color of your love I've seen enough I want another
Every color of your love I've seen enough I want another

Hey little mamma when you talk back
I see your eyes light up
And I love that
I'm just a peach fuzz boy I'm so alone
No I don't wanna miss you honey
Come home

Every color of your love I've seen enough I want another!

Wolf Song

Pack the bags
This time I am heading North
Left the racks
Won't need those where
I'm going
Count the stacks
Dodging cops cause nobody here wants a bind
Toke a pack
Calling shots pretend all the while that you're mine

And I'm always thinking of you
Always thinking I could love you more
Know I'm always thinking of you
Always thinking I could love you more

Burn it all
Burn it all fire light deep in my eyes
Break the noose
Heed the call
Howling like one of our kind
These days read clearly
Like a wolf in the snow
In some way I feel you near me
And darlin' as long as you know

That I'm always thinking of you
Always thinking I could love you more
Know I'm always thinking of you
Always thinking I could love you more

No I'm always thinking of you
Always thinking I could love you more

Penny, Heads Up

Not sayin' you want to
Not sayin' you would
Not sayin' you have to
I'm just sayin' you could
Let it fall into motion
Carve our names in the wood
Oh I'd drink up an ocean
Just to show you I could

Fallin' in love to a little tiny speaker
Rain so hard that our tent started leakin' on us
We ain't got much what we got's enough
When the going gets tough
We make our own good luck

Not sayin' you want to
Not sayin' you would
Not sayin' you have to
Just sayin' we could
Take all of the potion
Take hold of my hand
Ignore all the omens
Cause we know we can

Fallin‘ in love to a little tiny speaker
Rain so hard that our tent started leakin' on us
We ain't got much what we got's enough
When the going gets tough
We make our own good luck

Fallin' in love to a little tiny speaker
Rain so hard that our tent started leakin' on us
We ain't got much what we got's enough
When the going gets tough
We make our own good luck

“Rain diddy”

Wunderbar

Don't say you love me
If it's only cause you've run out of
better things to say
Don't pretend you know me
I haven't shown you anything
Besides the clothes I wear in the light of day

And I wait for my true love
She is sailing on an emerald green ocean
So far away
And I wait
For the day that she takes my hand
And comes to shore and shows my heart
Its rightful place

Standin' on the notion that we're not in this together
We'll only end up getting us all killed
As soon as you can realize that we're all birds of a feather
And the fox is in the White House on the hill

You can wait for your whole life
On the man who said he'd save you
I can't speak to the times of late
Or you can go out into the world
And wrap your arms around all
The wunderbar
Love and grace

Love and grace is what we need!

On And On And On

Standing on the edge with you
All the things we said we'd do
All the freckles on your face
Tell me of your storied grace

All the things I said to you
Felt them in my heart so true
Thousand miles from boy to faun
But it didn't feel that way at all
On and on and on
I'm yours
On and on and on
I'm yours

Standing on the edge with you
Eyes of green and sky of blue
All the while you try and guess
As your heart beats through your chest
Is it real, could it be true?
Sparks fly as I think of you
All the freckles on your face
Tell me constellations don't stay in space!

I'm yours!
On and on and on
I'm yours
I'm yours!
On and on and on
I'm yours
I'm yours!
On and on and on
I'm yours

As we walk among the fields
Of rosemary and daffodils
Holding fast to notions grand
Grateful to be here holding your hand!

I'm yours!
On and on and on
I'm yours
I'm yours!
On and on and on
I'm yours
On and on and on

Moonsmoke

If I die young, heaven hold me
For the road's long and it's lonely
If you knew me then you know me, bone deep
If I die young, heaven hold me.

“Hello Bluebird, hello Robin”
“Top of the mornin”
“How's it goin?”
“We don't know, just got here”
“Got it”
“Hello Bluebird, hello Robin”

I knew sunshine, I knew Moonsmoke
I knew long laughs, I knew good jokes
Ooh the bottle it broke, had a toke
I knew sunshine, I knew Moonsmoke.

Huckleberry Love

Don't drink the water if you can't see through it
Get up, I'll give you something make you feel alright
I know you're really wishin' that you knew
But you don't
So come on honey lets romance all night

You line me up, when I'm in trouble
I'm only lookin' at you
Am I enough, I'm seeing double
Cause I've been drinking for two

Don't drink the water if you can't see through it
Get up, I'll give you something make you feel alright
I know you're really wishing that you knew
But you don't
So come on darlin' let's romance all night

You line me up, when I'm in trouble
I'm only looking at you
Am I enough, I'm seeing double
Cause I've been drinking for two

We're gettin' older and older and older and older
Older and older and ohuohuwohao

We're gettin' older and older and older and older
Older and older and ohuohuwohao

I'm comin' home
And I know that you're gone

Oh I'm comin' home
And I know that you're gone

Oh I'm comin' home
And I know that you're gone

Oh I'm comin' home
And I know that you're gone

By & By

Driving through West Virginia
And I've seldom been thinner
With that chip on my shoulder
This past year I got so much older

Lookin' back over my life
Spent the most of it tongue tied
I wish I'd had more time
Listenin' to you speak your mind

Now I'm thinkin' about her everyday
On my mind atypical way
Are you a life force?
Thinkin' about her everyday
On my mind atypical way
Are you a life force?

Drinkin' coffee black as iron
And I couldn't be much higher
Without fallin' out of my chair
Been so numb for so many years

Now I'm thinkin' about her everyday
On my mind atypical way
Are you a life force?
Thinking about her everyday
On my mind atypical way
Are you a life force?

And it's so easy
To be blinded by the light
To feel lonely in the night
This blowing in the breeze babe
I got dust in my eyes
And rust in my mind
I'll be home come next spring
Won't you say you love me later, by and by

Looking back over life
Spent the most of it tongue tied
Pullin' my belt tight
Just me and the stars tonight

Two fingers and a tight line
Keep my head above the alpine
Just wish I'd spent more time
Listenin' to her speak her mind

Thinking about her everyday
On my mind atypical way
Are you a life force?
Thinking about her everyday
On my mind atypical way
Are you a life force?
Thinking about her everyday
On my mind atypical way
Are you a life force?
Thinking about her everyday
On my mind atypical way
Are you a life force
for me?

Of Love And Life

Burnt wood has bared witness to many songs sung
Warmed up the hands
And the hearts of the young
And the old gather round
Till the flames are all done
Passing down their words of wisdom.

Talking about a schoolyard crush
And two wheeled bikes
A few rolling papers on those Friday nights
Drink with good people
Get high as a kite
Before they drift away
Out of mind and out of sight.

Well that's not to say you lose
Everything and everyone
Hear me out, take your time
And watch the setting sun
Take your hands out of your pockets
Feel the water run
Don't worry about tomorrow and yesterday
Is gone.

And the words that he said
Still echoing in my head
Don't sell your soul for money son
Means nothing when your dead
We all walk the same out here
Our blood is pumpin' red
Feels struggle feel pain
Keep a level head.

Find a beautiful love
Look straight into their eyes
Make sure they know
They're your morning light
And that you'll never let go
till the day that you die

This here is love
This here is life
