PULL OVER This goes out to the black-haired lady in the dark blue Ford stepside Westbound I-40 in the fast lane, twenty miles from the Jackson line Michael's callin' on his cellphone, to get this message to you So if you're listenin', he's the red Mustang, smilin' in your rearview Sounds like you've got a love thing there Hold on, I'll put Michael on the air Pull over at the next truck stop I'll buy the coffee, I'd sure like to talk Pull over, I like the way you smiled at me There's no tellin' where this might lead So if you'd like to meet, pull over It's three twenty on your drive-time station, our Romeo is still on the line He'd like to make a dedication to the lady in the Ford stepside It's John Michael Montgomery singin' "Life's a Dance" If you want to, give him a sign, if not, he'll understand If I were you I'd give him a try He sounds like a real nice guy Pull over at the next truck stop I'll buy the coffee, I'd sure like to talk Pull over, I like the way you smiled at me There's no tellin' where this might lead So if you'd like to meet, pull over Wait a minute let's go to line two There's a lady with a message for you I'll pull over at the next truck stop If you'll buy coffee, I'd sure like to talk I'll pull over, I like the way you smiled at me There's no tellin' where this might lead Yes, I'd like to meet, pull over Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Steve Trinward Copyright Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) / trinSongs

TILL ROSES TURN TO STONE They met at an old-fashioned Fourth of July backyard barbecue From his mom’s garden, he gave her a rose Three years later before Senior Prom at Wilson Falls High School He pinned her corsage and read her a poem Till roses turn to stone And all the stars fall from the sky Till the mountains melt into the sea Then through the longest night You’ll never be alone Till roses turn to stone He’s got a picture of her on their wedding day – the perfect blushing bride Taken just before she threw the bouquet And he still swears that over the years they only had one fight He sent her flowers with a note to say Till roses turn to stone And all the stars fall from the sky Till the mountains melt into the sea Then through the longest night You’ll never be alone Till roses turn to stone He kneels down at her graveside To place a wreath upon the ground Gently touching the roses Carved into the marble now Till roses turn to stone And all the stars fall from the sky Till the mountains melt into the sea Then through the longest night You’ll never be alone Till roses turn to stone Till roses turn to stone Written by Allen Sostrin and Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright 1998 Universal - Songs of Polygram Int (BMI) / Seven Angels Music (BMI) / Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

SPEAKIN’ EASY He pulled up in a brand new Packard With his buddy and his best gal Found the door in that dark back alley He knocked three times and they let ‘em in . . . The crowd kept dancin’ and downin’ their booze Speakin’ easy, as if they had nothin’ to lose While the couple were happy flappin’ Their friend took chances with lady luck Caught outnumbered, accused of cheatin’ - A backroom trial at the butt of a gun The crowd kept dancin’ and downin’ their booze Speakin’ easy, as if they had nothin’ to lose A funny feelin’ made him start searchin’ He found his friend in a pool of blood Told at gunpoint - forget it happened He chose to live and he slipped away The crowd kept dancin’ and downin’ their booze Speakin’ easy, as if they had nothin’ to lose Speakin’ easy Speakin’ easy Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Bill Warrington Copyright 2003 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) / Bill Warrington (BMI) D.O.C. – 2/21/2003

A MOMENT I’LL NEVER FORGET The day I took my little boy to the ballpark for the very first time He wore his cap and glove, my little man, standin’ in the ticket line I took his hand and led him up the ramp We made our way out on the upper deck His eyes lit up when he saw that green grass That’s a moment I’ll never forget The crowd had started thinning out, the game was over by the bottom of the eighth So we headed down to the good seats, right behind third base Next batter swung, the foul ball came toward us I caught it one bounce off the steps I was proud to hand it to my son That’s a moment I’ll never forget Later on, out in the parking lot, he clutched his treasure in his hands Looked up at me – all one big grin – and said, thank you, dad Then he saw a younger boy, in a wheelchair, and he thought for a while But before he got into the car, he asked me to wait, and he smiled It was quite a sacrifice he made He put the ball in that boy’s mitt Should’ve seen that little guy’s face That’s a moment I’ll never forget Should’ve seen the pride on my face That’s a moment I’ll never forget Written by Mark Cameron, Seth Jackson, and Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright 2002 Mark Cameron / Row Town Music (ASCAP) / Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

FROM TUCSON TO ME I wiped a tear from your eye before I got on board Flight 209 departed on time From the desert sky I can’t see you anymore I’m leaving Arizona to start a new life Someday I hope you’ll understand This ain’t the way I had it planned I know I broke your heart and it’s killin’ me to leave But I’ll send you a ticket - from Tuscon to me Remember me when I’m gone and write me now and then I’ll send my love across the miles But you’ll stay with your mom and her new boyfriend None of this makes sense – through the eyes of a child Someday I hope you’ll understand This ain’t the way I had it planned I know I broke your heart and it’s killin’ me to leave But I’ll send you a ticket, from Tuscon to me I know I broke your heart and it’s killin’ me to leave But I’ll send you a ticket, from Tuscon to me Written by Marghie Evans and Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright 1998 Marghie Evans / Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

FROSTBITE She's drivin' crazy, tryin' to get out of town It doesn't matter where she's goin' right now Steam on her windows, her blood's runnin' hot He was cold and heartless, never thought he'd get caught She's got frostbite His love was cold enough to burn One look into her icy eyes confirms Frostbite She's afraid of being touched Now that she's realized love can hurt so much Hunger stops her, she wipes the tears from her face Walks into the diner and pretends she's okay But when a stranger crosses the room She cuts him down, it's much too soon She's got frostbite His love was cold enough to burn One look into her icy eyes confirms She's got frostbite She's afraid of being touched Now that she's realized love can hurt so much Love is a fire you can't control And where there's smoke you'd think there's a flame But there's a cloud that comes from dry ice It looks familiar, but it's not the same She's got frostbite His love was cold enough to burn One look into her icy eyes confirms Frostbite She's afraid of being touched Now that she's realized love can hurt so much She's got frostbite She's got frostbite She's got frostbite Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Pam O'Daniel Copyright 1996 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)/ Pam O'Daniel

COLORADO ’95 Colorado, ’95 Denver Airport, missed my flight As fate would have it, you were just about to land Two years later, March fourteenth Your parents house, I took a knee Had their permission, before I asked you for your hand I know sometimes I might forget ‘bout the little things in life And when you’re tryin’ to talk to me, something else is on my mind Try to forgive me if you can, and honey, please remember this . . . There are some things I never will forget The day our baby girl was born Really taught me what love is for . . . Changed my whole life, and everything I thought I knew I count my blessings every night And look back on my best times in life Like every morning when I wake up next to you I know sometimes I might forget ‘bout the little things in life And when you’re tryin’ to talk to me, something else is on my mind Try to forgive me if you can, and honey, please remember this . . . There are some things I never will forget Colorado, ’95 Denver Airport, missed my flight As fate would have it, you were just about to land Written by Brian Beathard and Jeffrey Scott Stewart Copyright 2002 Brian Beathard / Blue Clover Music (ASCAP)

THIS TIME Susie showed up at our door sometimes late at night Make-up runnin', eyes swollen from the tears she'd cried No place else to go She’d say he lost control And she was closer than the demons he was tryin’ to fight This time she's leavin' him forever This time she saw the light Finally, she’s gone to find better Now that he crossed the line She's never goin' back this time In the mornin' she‘d stare into her coffee cup Mumblin' somethin' 'bout how she'd really had enough Then he’d call on the phone And beg her to come home She’d say 'no', but she’d be cryin' when she hung up This time she's leavin' him forever This time she saw the light Finally, she’s gone to find better Now that he crossed the line She's never goin' back this time This time he went too far A bullet to her heart She thought she’d save him with her love - He killed her in cold blood This time she's leavin' him forever This time she saw the light Finally, she’s gone to find better Now that he crossed the line She's never goin' back She's never goin' back She's never goin' back . . . this time Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Julianne Sutton Copyright 2000 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) / Julianne Sutton Original DOC in 1996

RED ROSES I came to this diner a couple months ago You smiled and poured coffee but you were sad, I know I've been coming here each day And it looks like something's changed Someone's been sending you Red Roses Someone's trying awful hard To let you know how much he loves you I wonder if he's won your heart Since he sent you flowers You've seemed to come to life I hear you talk about Romantic notes he writes I've been coming here each day And it looks like something's changed Someone's been sending you Red roses Someone's trying awful hard To let you know how much he loves you I wonder if he's won your heart I've been coming here each day And it looks like something's changed I've been sending you Red Roses I've been trying awful hard To let you know how much I love you I wonder if I've won your heart I wonder if I've won your heart Written by Jeffrey Scott Stewart and Bill Warrington Copyright 2007 Blue Clover Music (ASCAP) / Bill Warrington Music (BMI) D.O.C. - originally written 1984, re-written 2/10/2007

about

This is a PREVIEW of this album . . . It's a collection of story songs. The cover image, by the way, is a 'hodgepodge' of different theaters, including my favorite theater for many years (and one of my favorite places to be, period), the Ventura Theater.
