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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Carmen Melton Taylor Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) / Awesome Musings Publishing (BMI)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Allan Sostrin and Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Allan Sostrin / Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart © Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

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 Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)
