Track Name: There's a Light (Green)
There’s a light/a light that shines/through my window/in the mornin’ time. So, hey now baby/won’t you take my hand/won’t you lead me down/to your clover land. Oh don’t you know/don’t you know? Oh don’t you know/You gotta let it flow/Down through your soul/let the river flow/let the river flow/down through your soul. There’s a feelin’/yeah it’s in the air/when she comes/she takes you there. See the weather/all warm and fair/well it’s time for livin’/lettin’ down your hair. Oh don’t you know/don’t you know? Oh don’t you know/you gotta let it flow/down through your soul/let the river flow/let the river flow/ down through your soul. There’s a time/and there’s a place/I got the time/if you’ve got the space. So hey now baby/won’t you take my hand/won’t you lead me down/to your clover land. Oh don’t you know/don’t you know/don’t you know/you gotta let it…ohhh/flow down through your soul/let the river flow/let the river flow…ahhhh down/through your soul/let it flow.
Track Name: Spring Begins (Green)
The flowers smile/the sun shines bright/the birds call/to let you know/hope lives still. Colors are pink/white, violet and green/daisy’s in yellow/and nature sings/redemption songs. Did you notice/notice at all? Did you know it’s/the time we fall/fall in love/all over again/all over again/Spring begins. The rain falls warm/the light peeks through/storm clouds part/with rainbow art/and a pot of gold. Did you notice/notice at all? Did you know it’s/the time we fall/fall in love/all over again/all over again/Spring begins. Did you notice/notice at all? Did you know it’s/the time we fall/fall in love/all over again/all over again/Spring begins/Spring begins.
Track Name: Nowhere Town (Green)
Well, my job had me down/in a farmin’ town/seemed like nowhere to me. Got to wonderin’ about/how this town/ever came to be. Well, it seemed like a place/to settle down/and raise your family. Where the people grin/and they don’t pretend/and they say what the mean. Round here things are slow/when all you know is that fast city life. In a nowhere town/you know things close down/before the stars begin to shine. And they work when it’s light/and sleep when it’s night/get up early and they don’t complain. Where the people grin/and they don’t pretend/and they call you by your name. Well my days are full/and I get pulled/every which way but loose. Chasin’ the clock/never affordin’ to stop/to loosin’ the noose. But in this town/you can forget about time/and who’s better than who. Where the people grin/and they don’t pretend/and they’re mighty kind to you. Well, I got to dreamin’ about/getting’ out/tryin’ my luck/in a nowhere town. Findin’ a farm/with a big red barn/and livin’ off the land. Well, it seemed like a place/to settle down/and learn to breathe again. Where the people grin/and they don’t pretend/and they treat ya like one of them. Now whether it’s right/you know I just might/whether I can/I might have found/where I can grin/and not pretend/where I can grin without thinkin’…. Yeah, whether it’s right, you know I just might/whether I can, I might have found/if I could, you know I would/whether I will, I can still…dream/’bout livin’ down…in Nowhere Town/Nowhere Town/Nowhere Town/Nowhere Town…….living down, in Nowhere Town.
Track Name: Country in the City (Green)
All the houses with their little lots/dutifully designed like little farms/with a garage for a barn and a pickup truck. Tall fences, dogs and cats/flower bed and a garden patch/and a John Deere lawn and garden tractor for effect. It’s country in the city/all the lawns look so pretty/yellow, green, red, violet, and blue. Rememberin’ the olden days/when we reaped what the good earth gave/everybody now/ trying to get back to then…workin’ hard in the garden. Dirty hands and grass stained knees/recall the days when a country breeze let you know/sweat feels good. City souls long for soil/plant and harvest/and gladly toil/ with supplies, from home depot. It’s country in the city/all the lawns look so pretty/yellow, green, red, violet and blue/rememberin’ the olden days/when we reaped what the good Lord gave/everybody now, tryin’ to get back to then…workin’ hard in the garden. Yeah, it’s country in the city/all the lawns look so pretty/yellow, green, red, violet and blue. (re)memberin’ the olden days/when we reaped what the good earth gave/everybody now/tryin to get back to then…everybody now, everybody now…workin’ hard in the garden.
Track Name: Kentucky On My Mind (Green)
Ky you’re on my mind/no finer place I’ll ever find/high on that red clay ridge/down to the fishin’ hole/Ky you’re on my mind. It was there I was born and raised/farmin’ the land, my daddy’s trade/and all those hired hands/they were my friends/time has long forgotten them. Ky you’re on my mind/no finer folk I’ll ever find/high on that red clay ridge/down to the fishin’ hole/Ky you’re on my mind. Another place, another time/in my momma’s arms, my grandaddy’s pride/down the Green River Valley/Across the Cumberland divide/Ky you’re on my mind. I squint to make out the faces and the places/Little Brush Creek/and that rock cliff cave/and the scatter-shot traces/of the way I remember it to be/Ky you’re on my mind. Ky you’re on my mind/no finer place I’ll ever find/high on that red clay ridge/down to the fishin’ hole/Ky you’re on my mind. You’re on my mind, you’re on my mind, you’re on my mind…you’re on my mind.
Track Name: Close to Home (Green)
Paint a picture with words/write a song with a brush. Makin’ things, takin’ the time/call somewhere in all of mine. Close to home/Close to home. Raise that day in a getaway car/fast highway into a blindin’ star. All I left didn’t mean a lot then/fond farewells keep echoin’. Close to home/Close to home. And the ways they walk/the ways they talk. All of them, all/follow me on. As if I could have lost them/lost, who I am…a stones throw…thrown like a stone/found…close to home. Close to home/Close to home.
Track Name: Judd's Ephemera (Green)
Well, he came in ’69, offered up a hand/stayed 10 years/workin’ for my dad. Plantin’ in the Spring/Harvest in the fall/milkin’ the cows/sloppin’ the hogs. He’s sittin’ on the porch/settin’ with the sun/little tenant house/next to the barn. Sweat soaked hat/grass stained boots/dirty over-alls, whiskey on the stoop. He’d say: “ya better watch your step boy, lessen you fall, straight into the gap of a poor man’s soul. A solitary…ah there ain’t much to say…’cept to mutter to yourself, and while the day…the day away. He’s peelin’ his banana/lightin’ up a smoke/Cincinnati Reds on his radio/sleepin’ when the darkness blankets the land/risin’ with the rooster/do it all again. He’d say: “ya better watch your step boy/lessen you fall/straight into the gap of a poor man’s soul. A solitary, ah there ain’t much to say/’cept to mutter to yourself/and while the day…the day away. Almost a decade to the day he came/he ‘bought the farm’ under a tin roof rain/a blip on a radar/nothin’ of note/an anonymous character/in a wordless book. Ahhh, ya better watch your step boy/lessen you fall/straight into the gap of a poor man’s soul. A solitary, now there ain’t much to say/ain’t much to say, hey…but while the day/while the day/while the day/the day away. While the day away….
Track Name: Red Farm (Green)
Big red barns/field of corn/waitin’ on a harvest moon. Big red sun/sinkin’ under/those white tobacco blumes. D17/smell that gasoline/turnin’ that old feed mill. Little seeds/soon see’m breath/crackin’ up through the ground. Ride, ride, ride/I’ll take you on a ride/all around the old red farm. Down, down to the river/down home/all around the old red farm. Cattle call/my shepherd dog/roundin’ ‘em up through the field…. Cattle pin/load ‘em in the dairy barn/time to milk those cows now. Ride, ride, ride/I’ll take you on a ride/all around the old red farm. Down, down to the river/down home/all around the old red farm…the old red farm. Ride, ride, ride/I’ll take you on ride/I’ll show you where I was born. Down, down to the river/down home/all around the old red farm/all around the old red farm…the old red farm.
Track Name: Here Comes the Rain (Green)
Here comes the rain, just in time/here comes the rain. Here comes the rain, just in time/comin’ down on yours and mine. I ain’t to concerned/when the dry seasons come/she takes care of her own. I ain’t too concerned when the dry seasons come/ah, she comes when she comes. Mother nature knows…how she grows. Mother nature knows…ah, she knows. Here comes the sun/down through the rain. Here comes the sun on everything. Here comes the sun/down through the rain/painting a rainbow again. Mother nature knows, how she grows. Mother nature knows….
Track Name: Bucket of Frogs (Green)
Way down in that river hollow/a long time ago. Sky blue Chevy Impala/fender fins and a radio. Sterling Malt liquor/in paper bag with a shaker of salt/way down in the hollow/a long time ago. It was the summer of 1972/in the haze of a haloed moon/a boy and a man/a shotgun and/a gig and a bucket full of frogs. That man was my cousin/and that boy, he was me. Moon shone on the water/but in that hollow it was hard to see. With liquor on his breath/he shot’m and he gigged’m in. And I held to that flashlight/steady as a leaf in the wind. It was the summer of 1972/in the haze of a haloed moon/a boy and a man/a shotgun and/a gig and a bucket full of frogs. Funny how you remember those things you feared the most/shotguns, God and gigs/and big ole bullfrogs. And when you hardly swim/you fear about slippin’ in/getting’ bit on the leg by a copperhead or a water-moccasin. It was the summer of 1972/in the haze of a haloed moon/a boy and a man/a shotgun and/a gig and a bucket full of frogs. It was my time froggin’/was my last time with him. Way down in that hollow/you know, I’ll never forget. That man who was my cousin/and that boy who was me/him froggin’ with a shotgun/and me shakin’ like a leaf. It was the summer of 1972/in the haze of a haloed moon/a boy and a man/a shotgun and/a gig and a bucket full of frogs…a boy and a man/a shotgun and/a gig and a bucket full of frogs.
Track Name: Tilted Wreck (Green)
The river was high/and the river was fast/the water rushed by/as I sat. On that tilted old wreck/of my uncle’s dream/the cabin he built/on the river bank. And it flooded and crashed/against a big Oak tree/some years back/but it still remains…yeah it still remains/the remains/of my uncle’s dream yeah… And the floods have come/and the floods have gone/and that crooked old cabin/it still holds on. And there I sat/so proud to be/on that tilted old wreck/of my uncle’s dream…and it still remains/the remains of my uncle’s dream yeah…. And the river was high/and that river was fast/and the water rushed by/as I sat….
Track Name: Gazillion Sunsets (Green)
Sunsets/too numerous/have long set/this setting scene. For many/many before me/and many/to come. And I see it now/as beautiful as anyone/has ever had/the pleasure to see. Blazing/it’s shine, shining/through Autumn’s first/turnin’ leaves. Oh the oblivion/of a gazillion sunsets/oh the feelin’/this one will last. Though it’s the same/the same as it ever was/this one I’ll soon/not forget. In pictures/stored in memory/this scene/I will enshrine. Recollected/for those days when/my sun/doesn’t shine. Oh the oblivion/of a gazillion sunsets/oh the feelin’/this one will last/though it’s the same/the same as it ever was/this one I’ll soon/not forget. Oh the oblivion/of a gazillion sunsets/oh the feelin/this one will last/though it’s the same/the same as it ever was/this one I’ll soon/I’ll soon/I’ll…not forget.
Track Name: Great Reunion (Green)
I grew up on trios and quartets/like the Happy Goodmans and the Gospel Heirs/singing on TV every Sunday morning/before church, where grandpa led the choir. I grew up on gospel music/singing songs about the Lord/singin’ ‘bout that great reunion/far away/over on that blissful shore. Now they sang about that land over yonder/how Jesus died to get me there/save my soul before I lost it/meet up with my savior in the air. I grew up on Gospel music/singin’ songs about the Lord/singin’ ‘bout that great reunion/far away/over on that blissful shore. Now that I’m older/I fondly remember/those dear old saints/how they would sing…”when we all get to heaven…what a day of rejoicing that will be.” I grew up on gospel music/singin’ songs about the Lord/singin’ ‘bout that great reunion/far away/over on that blissful shore. And “I’ll meet you in the morning, I’ll meet you in the mornin’/just inside the eastern gates over there…I will meet you in the mornin’, I will meet you in the mornin’…just inside the eastern gates, over there…over…there.
Track Name: Oklahoma (Gold)
This city’s slow/cattle drive rollin’ in/SUVs and tractor trailers/mini-vans. Cars crawl like parasites/on a planet grown too small/accidents and temperaments/eroding ozone. Tomorrow’s in the mail/with today’s counterfeit/no think tanks in these hotels/just corporate bullshit. Thinkin’ ‘bout the holidays/and why the hell are we still here/where tradition reigns/in our Midwestern malaise. Jaded and strained/brain drained/by the lure of normal/somewhere in Oklahoma. You don’t think it’s you/but you’re livin’ on a carousel/goin’ round and round/where your commentary never sells. Burnin’ all your books now/taking your paintings down/they don’t care what’s underneath/ahhhh, you’re in the shallows now. Jaded and strained/brain drained/by the lure of normal/somewhere in Oklahoma. Underneath those crashing syllables/every word you sing/it’s a razor’s edge to me/your truth rings.
Track Name: All Things Yesterday (Gold)
Well, you pass me by everyday/you look right past my face/so familiar, I’m commonplace/soon forgotten/soon replaced. I’m your table/I’m that chair/I’m those fancy shoes you used to wear/I’m the Maytag, the old Frigidaire/deemed obsolete now, beyond repair. And all things pass away/tomorrow’s things replace todays/and even you will not escape/the place for all things yesterday. Well I disappear/then I shine like the chrome/on that old Bellaire/your grand-dad used to own/on the retail rack, when you couldn’t ignore/in the back of your closet/you don’t wear me no more. And when my new smell has all worn off/I’ll be hidden away in a room of moth-balls/boxed and labeled, second-hand store/where one man’s junk is another one’s gold. Hey…all things pass away/tomorrow’s things replace todays/and even you will not escape/the place for all things/yesterday. And now I’m all weathered and worn/my colors are faded/my upholstery torn/on my way where old things go/buried In a landfill for all things gone. And the clock ticks faster for all things made/it’s first then it’s last, then it’s thrown away/present then past/and it will be/the next new thing fated for obscurity. Hey…all things pass away/tomorrow’s things replace todays/and even you will not escape/the place for all things/yesterday.
Track Name: River Over the Hill (Gold)
On her banks/I close my eyes/flood of old faces/floating by/some here were baptized, for their sacred birth-rite/for that land, on the other side. There’s a sandbar/in the shallow water/broken arrowheads are sometimes found/where the Redman made his last stand/where the white man stole his home. Oh the sounds of this lazy river/Her currents whisper into these hills/Listen closely, you may hear the stories/of the old river over the hill. They put down their stakes here/in the foothills/of Appalachia/farmin’ these fields/they were our mothers, they were our fathers/by that river/that runs here still. Oh the sounds of this lazy river/Her currents whisper into these hills/Listen closely, you may hear the stories/of the old river over the hill.
Track Name: Ferris Wheel (Gold)
Big Ferris Wheel at the county fair/all the happy sounds everywhere/magic horses/merry-go-round/feel it goin’ up and down. I still remember when we were kids/laugh and scream/tag you’re it/Weeping Willow, hide and seek/Grandma’s every Saturday. Oh how the time/Goes so fast/Tricklin’ down the hour glass/Once to be young/Now to be older/Once we were young/Now we know/The days are getting shorter/And the shadows are longer. Drivin’ that car/sweet sixteen/high school dance/homecoming queen/under the stars/your first kiss/her name, her name/you’ll never forget. Close our eyes/we’ll pretend/run and hide/I’ll count to ten/ready or not here I come/ready or not here it comes. Oh how the time/Goes so fast/Tricklin’ down the hour glass/Once to be young/Now to be older/Once we were young/Now we know/The days are getting shorter/And the shadows are longer. Oh how the time goes so fast. Oh how the time goes so fast.
Track Name: 1976 (Gold)
1976/Frampton on the radio/driver’s license/daddy’s car, on the country road. Gerald Ford was President/Watergate was finally spent/In the bi-centennial red/white and blue. And Vietnam was gone/but really it lingered on/in the adolescent dawn/of a post-war malaise. And that revival preacher said/oh people, God he ain’t dead/and we confessed our sins/for that land beyond the blue. We were sixteen years old/We didn’t know what was goin’ on/But we were likin’ girls/And the world behind a steering wheel. And we would drive around/cruisin’ the town/with our windows down/in 8 track stereo. And we would spot a girl/we hadn’t seen before/we would’ve circled the world/just to pass her again. We were sixteen years old/Oh we didn’t know what was goin’ on/but we were likin’ girls/likin’s girls….We were sixteen years old/oh we didn’t know/we didn’t know/we were likin’ girls/likin’ girls/likin’ girls/and the world/behind a steerin’ wheel. Do you feel? Did you feel…like we did.
Track Name: Like Don Quixote (Gold)
There’s a glimmer/a shimmer/cuttin’ a figure like Don Quixote’/across the plains of some La Mancha/with a pen for a lance/carving such eloquence/in the battledress/of make-believe. And it’s in to the wide open/As far as the eye will see/Planted on a horse/Atop the magic mountain/Oh the fountain flows/eternally…like Don Quixote’. And the windmills sail/in the field of a knight’s honor/Goliaths in the path of a sling-shot dream/where the glitter on the winners/cast a pall on the losers/in the shadows a madman/reigns supreme. And it’s into the wide open/as far as the eye will see/planted on a horse/atop the magic mountain/oh the fountain flows eternally…like Don Quixote’. There’s a figure by the river/mounting Rocinante/Sancho and the don ride again/and though the end is closer/the old machine knows better/even broken clocks are right/twice a day. And it’s in to the wide open/As far as the eye will see/Planted on a horse/Atop the magic mountain/Oh the fountain flows…oh oh oh, eternally…like Don Quixote, like Don Quixote.
Track Name: Perfect Hotel (Gold)
The cobblestones on the Rue Rodier/echo the tombs of yesterday/all the ghosts from the old country/sashay by and they dance for me. And I feel the wind whisper in my ear/across the Seine from Mont Mart I hear/the revolution and San Denis/Napoleon and Josephine. As the rains are falling down/On the streets of old Paris/And the laughter, and the screams/Of the forgotten centuries/Fill the halls of the Perfect Hotel. And the dancer lifts her skirts ‘neath the chandelier/as the patrons salute her and hoist their beer/all for all, arm in arm they sing/for life, for love, for liberty. As the rains are falling down/On the streets of old Paris/And the laughter, and the screams/Of the forgotten centuries/Fill the halls of my Perfect Hotel. Se ci Serra, Serra, Serra/Se ci Serra, Serra, Serra/Mon Amie, Mon Amie, Mon Amor/Mon Amie, Mon Amor/la la la la/la la la/la la la/la la la la/la la la/la la (etc). And the rains are falling down/On the streets of old Paris/And the laughter and the screams/Of the forgotten centuries/Fill the halls of my Perfect Hotel.
Track Name: Old Mexico (Gold)
There’s a town/there’s a town/down in old Mexico/and it is bound by the banks/where the Rio Grande flows. And there’s a moon, a brighter moon/brighter than you’ll ever see/shinin’ down on the town/where my senorita sleeps. And soon I will go/I will go/back to old Mexico/across the land, to the town/where my soul belongs. And she’ll be there/she’ll be fair/fairest maiden you’ll ever see/and I swear that is where/someday soon I will be. And we’ll dance/And we’ll dance/On the banks of the Rio Grande/To the sounds of the town/And the Mariachi band/And she’ll be there/she’ll be fair/fairest maiden you’ll ever see/and I swear/that is where/someday soon I will be. So now I toil in the soil/for every penny I can save/for the day I make my way/where my true love awaits. And when I arrive to see her eyes/smell her skin oh so sweet/she will sigh and I’ll smile/and my journey will be complete. And we’ll dance, and we’ll dance/On the banks of the Rio Grande/To the sounds of the town/And the Mariachi band/And she’ll be there, she’ll be fair/Fairest maiden you’ll ever see/And I swear that is where/someday soon I will be/And I swear that is where, I shall forever be.
Track Name: Little Bird (Gold)
I heard a little bird/chirpin’ out my window/singin’ its song/like I was supposed to hear. Ahhhhh ain’t absurd/how we all rush around/if we stop and listen now/there’s a song we all should hear. Yodle diddle dee/Yodle diddle doo…. I’m just like that little bird/chirpin’ out your window/singin’ my song/Ahhhh, like you’s supposed to hear. Yodle diddle dee/Yodle diddle doo….
Track Name: Make a Little Music (Gold)
Someday’s too far away/that might be too late/somewhere over there/baby I can’t wait…To make a little music/do a little dance/you and me. Make a little music/I sure could use/a little bit a harmony/Baby right here with me. Why not now/here today/it won’t cost a thing/got a little time/got a little rhyme/got a little melody…Make a little music/do a little dance/you and me. Make a little music/I sure could use/a little bit a harmony/Baby right here with me. Why not here/where we are/let’s pick’m and lay’m down/do a little tune/shoot the moon/right here from the ground…And make a little music/do a little dance/you and me. Make a little music/I sure could use/a little bit a harmony….Make a little music/do a little dance/Make a little love/take a little chance…Make a little music/Do a little Dance/Make a little music…alright let’s go…
Track Name: Eureka Moon (Gold)
Moon, moon, moon/climbing o’er the rise/peeking through the feathered plumes/purpling the sky. Shine, shine, shining all/all its light around/shadow hands on the wall/faces in the clouds. Moon, moon, moon…shine your light/shine your light. Moon, moon, moon/Dance tonight. High above the old town/atop the old hotel/see the church on the hill/hear those ringing bells. Moon, moon, moon/shine your light/shine your light. Moon, moon, moon/Dance tonight. Peeking through the feathered plumes/purpling the sky/painting me, painting you/pictures in the night. Moon, moon, moon/shine your light/moon, moon…. Moon…Eureka Moon.
Track Name: Slow Love (Gold)
It’s a different kind of love/One you never dreamed of/Slowin’ down just enough/to find your fortune…in her. Sometimes attraction comes fast/though it never seems to last/all those ones in your past/fading memories…at last. You found your lover and your friend/Or maybe she found you in the end/Face like an angel/She brought a different/ohhh a different/kind of love. Ain’t no push/ain’t no pull/she disarms you with her soul/though your recognition came slow/it’s getting clearer/as you…go. The surer, truer it seems to be/the longer, stronger you believe/like aging wine over time/it’s gettin’ sweeter, as the days…go by. You found your lover and your friend/or maybe she found you/in the end. Face like an angel/Face like an angel/She brought a different/ahhhhh a different/Kind of love.
Track Name: Brightest Star (Gold)
I love you more than when we started/I thank the Lord, we got it, right. And you’re just as lovely/As you were/That day I first/Saw…your pretty face. I still remember that summer we met/That September, when we took our first trip. And your just as lovely/As you were/That day I first/Saw…your pretty face. Love I doubted/but you made me believe/Not in my wildest, wildest dreams/Could someone so Won-der-ful as you are/be there for me/shining/like the Brightest Star.
