Track Name: Wildflowers
WILDFLOWERS

I'm so cold and it's dark as night
It's gettin' hard to breathe
I've been screamin' with all my might
And scratchin' until my fingers bleed

Carly Sue, won't you come find me
How I miss your kiss right now
And the way we swayed together
With the wildflowers all around

With skin so warm and lips so sweet
Her love was all I craved
And I lived for the times we'd meet
Alone in our special secret place

Carly Sue, won't you come find me
How I miss your kiss right now
And the way we swayed together
With the wildflowers all around

Her husband was a jealous soul
And had a right to be
Brought his friends and enough hemp rope
To hang us from the nearest trees

Carly Sue, won't you come find me
How I miss your kiss right now
And the way we swayed together
With the wildflowers all around

Now I'm so cold and it's dark as night
It's gettin' hard to breathe
I've been screamin' with all my might
And scratchin' until my fingers bleed
And scratchin' until my fingers bleed

Track Name: Clarence Cole's Backyard
CLARENCE COLE'S BACKYARD

I knew a man named Clarence Cole
He had a lot of stuff
His hobby was collections
His biggest one was dust

I believe the old man heard
voices in his head
And when he tried to throw junk out
They told him instead

You'd better save it, Clarence Cole
You never know when it might be handy
And then someday, you'll fix it up
And it'll be just like brand new
But for now, it'll have to go
Where all of your things go
In your backyard

The Fire Chief, he hired me
To haul away that trash
Said until it was all gone
He wouldn't let the old man back

Clarence had a lot of land
underneath his things
And as I tried to clear a path
I heard those voices sing

You'd better save it, Clarence Cole
You never know when it might be handy
And then someday, you'll fix it up
And it'll be just like brand new
But for now, it'll have to go
Where all of your things go
In your backyard

I found four mannequins, three kitchen sinks
Everything pile six feet high
Worn encyclopedia sets
Racks of clothes and five bald tires
Old broken down washing machines
Pots and pans and three junk cars
Stacks and stacks of boxes
And that was just the barn!

You'd better save it, Clarence Cole
You never know when it might be handy
And then someday, you'll fix it up
And it'll be just like brand new
But for now, it'll have to go
Where all of your things go
In your backyard

Track Name: Hummingbird
HUMMINGBIRD

Honey, he's just like a hummingbird
And you're his favorite flower for now
If you look closer you can see his wings
Flap a million miles an hour

Faster, faster
He keeps flyin'
And he'll be gone before you know
Faster, faster
He'll leave you cryin'
But I'll be glad to see him go

Maybe when he's gone you'll notice me
I've been waiting for that day
You need someone to depend upon
And I'm the kind of guy who stays

Faster, faster
He keeps flyin'
And he'll be gone before you know
Faster, faster
He'll leave you cryin'
But I'll be glad to see him go

Honey, he's just like a hummingbird

Track Name: I Got The Dog
I GOT THE DOG

She got the keys to the car, the TV, and my favorite chair . . .
It was my home for years, now it’s just her livin’ there
Even the lawyers admit – I was robbed
But I’m doin’ alright – I got the dog!

I got the dog – he still loves me
She’ll never know what true love means
I’ve come to find out just who’s my best friend
He’ll stand beside me – through thick and thin
She can keep all of those things that we bought
I got the dog

Looking back on those days, I see him in old photographs
Who would have guessed – his was the love that would last
There she is smilin’ all sweet – but I’m better off
I can leave her behind – I got the dog!

I got the dog – he still loves me
She’ll never know what true love means
I’ve come to find out just who’s my best friend
He’ll stand beside me – through thick and thin
She can keep all of those things that we bought
I got the dog

I got the dog – he still loves me
She’ll never know what true love means
I’ve come to find out just who’s my best friend
He’ll stand beside me – through thick and thin
She can keep all of those things that we bought
I got the dog

Track Name: Minding My Business
MINDING MY BUSINESS

I know I'm new to this here town
There's already talk that's goin' 'round
Let's just get a few things straight
Then you and me, hey, we'll be A-okay

I get along, minding my business
Minding my own business – I get along
I get along, minding my business
Minding my own business – I get along

I'm an easygoing guy
That's the way I choose to live my life
If that doesn't work for you
I wouldn't want to tell you what to do

I get along, minding my business
Minding my own business – I get along
I get along, minding my business
Minding my own business – I get along

Track Name: Mr. Full Moon
MR. FULL MOON

Hey there, Mr. Full Moon
I see you starin' down at all my night-time games
You must not have too much to do

I know sometimes you're lazy
But when you're not, you sure are the romantic kind
Poets and lovers speak of you

You're so high up in the sky above me
And still sometimes I think you're in my reach
Please stay close to my heart, Mr. Full Moon
Never let me forget my dreams

Hey there, Mr. Full Moon
I'm gazing at you 'cause I really think you're cool
You surely live by your own rules

But I can see you clearly
And I can see the scars that time has left on you
Even you must get the blues

You're so high up in the sky above me
And still sometimes I think you're in my reach
Please stay close to my heart, Mr. Full Moon
Never let me forget my dreams

Hey there, Mr. Full Moon
I see you starin' down at all my night-time games
You must not have too much to do

Track Name: Out In The Country
OUT IN THE COUNTRY

Born in the city, I still call this concrete ‘home’
But I’d like to start out someplace new
A one room apartment’s all the life I’ve really known
I think it’s time for me to move . . .

I want to live out in the country
Surrounded by trees
Out in the country
Sounds good to me
Something’s come over me,
and I don’t know what it is
I just want to live out in the country


I’ve spent too long in search of diamonds – for their shine
I should’ve grabbed my chunk of coal
I always thought that breathin’ deep was wastin’ time
Now I need something for my soul

I want to live out in the country
Surrounded by trees
Out in the country
Sounds good to me
Something’s come over me,
and I don’t know what it is
I just want to live out in the country

Something’s come over me,
and I don’t know what it is . . .
I just want to live out in the country

Track Name: Travelin' Blues
TRAVELIN' BLUES

Goin' down the road
Goin' down the road
To make it to another show
Goin' down the road
I've got to pay my dues
With the travelin' blues

I'm gonna sing my songs for people from all around
I've got to play my tunes in town after town
Some men would love to wear my shoes
But every time I say good-bye to you
I get the travelin' blues

Good-bye to my home
Good-bye to my home
Sometimes I feel so all alone
(When I say) good-bye to my home
I live the life I choose
But I've got the travelin' blues

I'm gonna sing my songs for people from all around
I've got to play my tunes in town after town
Some men would love to wear my shoes
But every time I say good-bye to you
I get the travelin' blues

I'm gonna sing my songs for people from all around
I've got to play my tunes in town after town
Some men would love to wear my shoes
But every time I say good-bye to you
I get the travelin' blues

Travelin' blues

Track Name: Say Goodnight
SAY GOODNIGHT

Say goodnight now everyone, please say goodnight to me
Thanks to you for all the fun, and all these memories
Goodnight to you my friends, I’m ‘bout to leave this stage
Take comfort in my melodies, when I’ve gone away

Let my words gently whisper
And bring joy to your life
And my love will surround you
When it’s time to say goodnight

Say goodnight now everyone, please say goodnight to me
Thanks to you for all the fun, and all these memories
Goodnight to you my friends, I’m ‘bout to leave this stage
Take comfort in my melodies, when I’ve gone away

Let my words gently whisper
And bring joy to your life
And my love will surround you
When it’s time to say goodnight

Goodnight
