Lyrics

            If Your Boat’s No Good

 

You can talk to God

You can knock on wood

But you can’t cross the ocean

If your boat’s no good

 

If your boat’s no good

If your boat’s no good

You’ll sink to the bottom

If your boat’s no good

 

So better be smart and be prepared

Only go out in clean underwear

Make damn sure you can walk the walk

Cuz all a lotta talk is… just talk

 

Talk’ll never be enough

Unless you back it up (back it up!)

 

You can fool yourself

You can fool your friends

But you can’t fool the daylight

When the long night ends.

 

When the long night ends

When the long night ends

You’ll be naked in the daylight

When the long night ends

 

So better be smart and be prepared

Only go out in clean underwear

Make damn sure you can walk the walk

Cuz all a lotta talk is… just talk

 

Talk’ll never be enough

Unless you back it up (back it up!)

 

Instrumental break

 

Now you can talk to God

You can knock on wood

But you can’t cross the ocean

If your boat’s no good

 

If your boat’s no good

If your boat’s no good

You’ll sink to the bottom

If your boat’s no good

 

Tag: You’ll sink to the bottom if your boat’s no good.

Lyrics

          Bill Walker

 

I hired Bill Walker to track a man down   

who'd murdered my wife and never was found.

 

Said, "Bring him to justice, do what you must,

folks I admire say you're someone to trust."

 

          Bill Walker made a bullet carved out of stone

          said, "a slug of cold granite will lay that man low."

 

He spent all his time on a trail that was cold

for almost a year I paid him in gold.

 

A chuck wagon cook, a restless cowboy,

Bill found the people I’d once employed

 

(Instrumental break)

 

The further he traveled the fewer his words        

Bill Walker was troubled by all he had heard.

 

He came to my house and all he would say         

is “a man who's done murder is dying today”.

 

                   (Instrumental break)

 

          Bill Walker made a bullet carved out of stone

          said, "a slug of cold granite will lay that man low."

 

A bullet of granite stings like a bee

straight through the heart...  Bill Walker killed me.

Lyrics

          Down to the Ground

 

V1

No. I'm sorry. I'm married.

And I'm someone who's got to be true.

But I know what you're talking about.

I feel the same fire too.

 

Chorus 1:

OH YES I FEEL THOSE SPARKS

SEE THEM FLYING AROUND

IF WE'D MET NINE YEARS AGO

WE'D HAVE BURNED THE HOUSE

DOWN TO THE GROUND

 

V2

No. Can't say I'm happy.

But I've got two little children at home.

And he said if I ever cheated

I would end up all alone.

 

Chorus 2:

OH BUT I FEEL THOSE SPARKS

SEE THEM FLYING AROUND

IF WE'D MET NINE YEARS AGO

WE'D HAVE BURNED THE HOUSE

DOWN TO THE GROUND

RIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND

 

          Bridge:

          You know I can't help it.

          I want you too much.

          Let's try one little kiss

          Let’s try one little touch.

 

Chorus 3:

'CAUSE YES I FEEL THOSE SPARKS

SEE THEM FLYING AROUND

WISH IT WAS NINE YEARS AGO

'CAUSE WE BURNED MY HOUSE

DOWN TO THE GROUND

RIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND

 

WE JUST BURNED MY HOUSE

DOWN TO THE GROUND

Lyrics

          His Loving Comes So Easy

 

V1

Never dreamed I’d find him

After all this time

Hard believin’

He is truly mine

He’s my inspiration.

He makes livin’ fun.

He’s my honey,

He’s my honeybun.

 

Chorus:

His lovin’ comes so easy

Like peaches to the tree

Like moonlight on the water

Like honey to a bee

His lovin’ comes so easy

His lovin’ comes so easy

 

Instrumental break

 

V2

Wraps his arms around me

Shows me how he cares

Come tomorrow

I know he’ll be there

He’s so empathetic.

Reads my every sigh.

He’s my sugar,

He’s my sugar pie.

 

(Chorus)

Lyrics

         

YOU'RE THE ONLY TRAIN (ON MY ONE TRACK MIND)

 

V1

I heard your whistle, I was raring to go,

loved the way you rumbled as you hauled my coal

thought it was clear when the brakeman gave the sign

you're the only train on my one track mind.

 

          Chorus:

YOU'RE THE ONLY TRAIN ON MY ONE TRACK MIND

          SEE YOUR LIGHTS A SHINING... MY OH MY

          BY THE TIME THAT CABOOSE COMES SWINGING ON BEHIND

          YOU'RE THE ONLY TRAIN ON MY ONE TRACK MIND

 

V2

Deep in the night I heard your distant whistle moan

such a mournful sound leaving me alone

under the moon in the shadow of a pine

you're the only train on my one track mind.

 

(CHORUS)

 

          Bridge:

Someone's telling stories up and down the tracks

          lying 'bout the details, messing with the facts.

          Didn't think you'd listen to a lot of hoop tee hoo.

          Babe the only train on my track is you.

Lyrics

                        Ashes In The Rain

 

Verse 1:

My granddad told me stories ‘bout the great Chicago fire.

Said the flames had roared like voices in the doomsday devils choir,

filling up the night with a leaping wall of red,

smoke choking out the sun, pitch-black overhead.

 

Prechorus 1:

Then he'd shake his head in wonder

unable to explain

how a city that seemed so strong

could dwindle down to ASHES IN THE RAIN.

 

            Chorus 1:

            ALL THAT FIRE LEFT

            WERE ASHES IN THE RAIN

            TERRIBLE DESTRUCTION, A LEGACY OF PAIN,

            NINETY THOUSAND PEOPLE TRYING TO BUILD THEIR LIVES AGAIN

            OUT OF ASHES

            ASHES IN THE RAIN

 

Verse 2:

When our desire first kindled we were spellbound in the heat.

All the dreams that burned inside us tangled in those fevered sheets,

binding  us together in passion's boundless maze

bone lonely hearts igniting in an all consuming blaze.

 

Prechorus 2:

Now I shake my head in wonder

unable to explain

how something that seemed so strong

could dwindle down to ASHES IN THE RAIN.

 

            Chorus 2:

            ALL THAT FIRE LEFT

            WERE ASHES IN THE RAIN

            TERRIBLE DESTRUCTION, A LEGACY OF PAIN,

            TWO LOST AND WOUNDED PEOPLE TRYING TO BUILD THEIR LIVES AGAIN

            OUT OF ASHES

            ASHES IN THE RAIN

Lyrics

                        Cowboy Cupid

 

Verse 1:           Been climbing up the ladder in a company

                        that's got a way of knocking all the loving out of me.

                        stopped in at the Brandin' Iron but I’s too tired to mix,

                        I was sittin’ with the girls talking office politics.

 

Chorus 1:

COWBOY CUPID SURE CHANGED THAT

FLEW UP BEHIND ME IN A TEN GALLON HAT

PULLED OUT HIS PEARL HANDLED ARROW SHOOTING PISTOL

LET ME HAVE IT THROUGH THE HEART WITH HIS LOVE POTION MISSILE

REMINDED ME OF WHAT A KISS CAN DO

THAT COWBOY CUPID HE'S ONE LOVE SLINGING BUCKAROO

 

Verse 2:           Like a sunrise on the prairie you were standing there

                        filling faded Levis looking western debonair.

                        I remember thinkin’ that’s my kinda guy

                        A man who knows his mind but who’s still a little shy

 

Chorus 2:

COWBOY CUPID SURE CHANGED THAT

FLEW UP BEHIND YOU IN A TEN GALLON HAT

PULLED OUT HIS PEARL HANDLED ARROW SHOOTING PISTOL

LET YOU HAVE IT THROUGH THE HEART WITH HIS LOVE POTION MISSILE

REMINDED YOU OF WHAT MY KISS COULD DO

THAT COWBOY CUPID HE'S ONE LOVE SLINGING BUCKAROO

 

Instrumental break

 

            Bridge:                        We had one dance and it was nice

                                                But we weren’t sure we’d try it twice

 

Chorus 3:

COWBOY CUPID SURE CHANGED THAT

FLEW UP BEHIND US IN THAT TEN GALLON HAT

PULLED OUT HIS PEARL HANDLED ARROW SHOOTING PISTOL

LET US HAVE IT THROUGH THE HEART WITH HIS LOVE POTION MISSILE

REMINDED US OF WHAT A KISS CAN DO

THAT COWBOY CUPID HE'S ONE LOVE SLINGING BUCKAROO

 

Tag:     NOW WE KISS THE WHOLE NIGHT THROUGH

            THAT COWBOY CUPID HE'S ONE LOVE SLINGING BUCKAROO

 

            THAT COWBOY CUPID

            HE’S ONE LOVE SLINGING BUCKAROO

 

            THAT COWBOY CUPID

            HE’S ONE LOVE SLINGING BUCKAROO

 

            THAT COWBOY CUPID

            HE’S ONE LOVE SLINGING BUCKAROO
