Two Lovers Two lovers were sitting around one day They were wondering what to do It was one of them crappy weather days The sky was grey instead of blue Well the dog was tired and they were getting restles in the middle of the afternoon He said maybe I’ll write a song, she said maybe I’ll listen to you So he pick up his guitar and started to write but as soon as he did that, his inspiration ran dry So they put there heads together to try to think of somethin else Not only just to entertain but to forget about themselves Chorus: They took drugs They had sex They took a long drive in the country and made promises that could never be kept By lovers like them just simple folks who don’t need much But lovers they’d always be as long as neither one became a crutch for the other So the next day they went to work Him to the station her to the store Both thinkin about the good time they had the day before They wished they could do that everyday And that they didn’t have debts and bills o pay Life should be free for the takin, with nothin but love to give And they’d give it to each other and that’s how they decided to live Chorus

Gotta Lose this part of me Ain’t got no where to go Don’t know anyone whos free Until you look inside you’ll know I gotta lose this part of me Now all the flowers drop their pedals And the trees there goes thier leaves And the snake he sheds it’s skin I gotta lose this part of me Nothings ever what it seems Be it reality or dreams When you believe your fears and lies The good lord hurts and the devil smiles Now while the sun hides behind the clouds I wanna go where I’m not aloud Yeah the blue skies came back today But I don’t want them to stay

Brainwashed Stinkin Land Well I’m just goin along my merry old way Tryin not to listen to a word you have to say It’s all lies and none of it needs to be heard Why don’t you shut your mouth and burry all your words I’m not listenin anyway I’m not reading one word you say Now I aint lived on this earth for a very long time But I know the difference between this and that and right and wrong There’s somethin to be said for the Master of the universe Ya can’t put nothin by him without some kind of curse Down deep inside we all know whats the truth And it don’t come from the TV radio or the evenin news But nobody can tell ya and make you believe what you don’t want Ya gotta realize yourself just what you got Noone but you can say Like salivatin dogs we seem to eat it up Al the propaganda newscasts and polls that are full of crap They keep tellin us were idiots with all their bald face lies By manipulating the video between our very own eyes Some slimey polititian knows he’s got us in the palm of his hands When it’s so obvious were livin in a brain washed stinkin land.

All She Wanted All she wanted to be was happy All she wanted to be was free All she wanted to be was loved All she wanted to be was with me And all she needed from me was me And all she needed from herself was belief And she wondered into his life Well she stood by her man And all he wanted to be was her man But all he wanted to be was a guy And all he wanted from her was her love And all he wanted to do was die in her arms And then things come closin in and reality strikes And your livin in your sins at least that’s what it seems like When your heart ain’t there it’s all hangin in the air It’s so hard to make her smile it’s like runnin the longest mile So they decided to be together They decided to be apart Whatever they decide it don’t matter She still got a place in my heart

Nothin' But Home Raised in a town Northeast of Omaha Not much there but soybeans, corn and people watchin’ baseball In the distance I can hear those trains roll down the track For thirty years that’s where my daddy broke his back To raise a family, mom two sisters and my brothers three Raised in a town Northeast of Omaha Not much there, not nothing but home Now my friends and I used to play some pretty good jokes Sometimes we took it too far til’ some inanimate object broke But when I compare our misdeeds with some I hear of today I think by God we were stupid, but compared with that we were OK Yeah we raised a little Hell, beer spilled in the car but oh well… Raised twenty miles Northeast of Omaha Not much there, not nothin’ at all Now those endless highways they ain’t nothin’ but flat And them people in them cars they all got a place they can park at And they’ll be the first to tell ya they don’t need much Just a few good friends, a good job and well…a new clutch And though it may all seem boring now Simplicity is their sacred cow Raised in a town Northeast of Omaha Not nothin’ there, not nothin’ at all. Now there’s no place on this earth like a good home Even if from here to kingdom come you do rome And it’s all those times, experiences and memories That get all wrapped up in the place you got to know your family And those big cities will never be What that little town now means to me Cuz I was born twenty miles Northeast of Omaha And there ain’t nothing there, not nothin’ but home

Marjorie Can I be expected Expected at your house tonight Can I be elected To kiss you one more time Your eyes……..slip into my pocket Your hair was mine……. To save in an envelope You wash it , you brush it, you want it to shine And I know that it’s mine The dresses that you wear I gave to you Last year for your birthday When you were just about twenty three Oh Marjorie I always loved you Your eyes slip into my pocket Your hair was mine I put it in an envelope, but I lost it If you were here today I’d like to play Some songs I learned in your honor And you’d sing along And we’d go off in the sunset in my car together OOOOOO, OOOOOOO, OOOOOOOO But I lost it

Shee looks like a little dolly all tattered and torn at the seams No one can reach her cause her gaze is fixed on her dreams The beauty of her creases has been worn by the harshness of men Exposure to living has colored her hair and her skin Chorus: But I like her, I like her, I like her O.K. Her dog has been traveling with her, more faithful than any man He too looks the worst for wear, but he still has some teeth to chew His coat is kind of mangy, and his bark is kind of hoarse Exposure to living let’s nature take it’s coarse But I like him, I like him, I like him O.K. Instrumental The car that she drives is yellow, more reliable than any man One seat for her one seat for her dog, and an engine that just won’t quit The trunk holds all her belongings and it barely closes shut Exposure to living, has left it full of rust But I like it, I like it, I like it O.K. And I like her, I like her, I like her dog O.K.

When I got you on my mind there’s no such thing as time And I think of you right here in my arms In that big deep space full of heartbreak and grace You are with me right here in my heart When we had to part well I didn’t know where to start To put my feelings into some kind of words Choked up as I was I thought of something like love And you flew away with wings like a bird Chorus: Well come with me now I’ll take you down To the river in the nighttime with the stars Don’t need to be anywhere but where we are so far Seems to me like paradise in the dark As we come around this bend and it looks like there’s no end And there’s more of the same along the way But it’s turning points like ours that can tell us just how far We have gone where we’re going and where we are Chorus: Instrumental then Chorus x 2
