There was a hole in the back of the canyon But I didn't wanna tell you until I had to You had a rule: don't leave any woman stranded So we forged ahead the evening after Chorus: And if it wasn't for the night, then we wouldn't have met And you wouldn't have saved my life from the lead Of the enemy's fire And your wounds would have bled until you died And I might make a piss poor mother and wife But I know the need of a frontier life I can settle for yours if you will settle for mine I'm on your side When the shots rang like low keys on pianos I grabbed your hand and I pulled you my way Towards the safety of that cavern I'd been hiding As all along I told you it would be okay Chorus Instrumental Chorus I'm on your side Oh, I - I'm on your side I'm on your side, I'm on your side I'm on your side, I'm on your side

If life was a peach on a velvet cushion I'd be a raccoon in a honeysuckle bush I would lay around with you all day in the shade But life is a sea and I'm just a possum I'm blind treading water til I sink to the bottom Blind treading water til I sink to the bottom Well, I could have had me an uptown dolly With a rhinestone shimmy and a pistol, by golly We'd sleep all day, ball every night But snaggletooth Sallies are all that I'm finding So I'm shining up coal til it's bright like a diamond Shining up coal til it's bright like a diamond And I'm blind treading water til I sink to the bottom Blind treading water til I sink to the bottom Blind treading water til I sink to the bottom Instrumental Well, you're born a little baby, hatched from the egg You roll around a little while While you limber up your legs Then you start up that hill, muddy, boy, and steep And while you're still young you think you are a soldier Go looking for the truth And the truth will make you older And I'm blind treading water till I sink to the bottom Blind treading water til I sink to the bottom Blind treading water til I sink to the bottom Well, life is a sea and I'm just a possum I'm blind treading water til I sink to the bottom

You ride on the copper rock mesas with your canteen and hat A blanket slung under your saddle And the sunrise shooting ya in the back You say it'd be all for the better if you broke that girl's heart You were leading her on with the duties Of a life of a wife on a farm You say love's like a tree in a field with just two things to do And it'll bear good fruit or it'll hold the noose that hangs you The tortoise you used for a pillow has awoken and left And the water you thought ran beside you Is just sand and snake breath You say it'd be all for the better if you went thirsty or starved She used the last of the town's water for her tears And it's all your fault You say love's like a tree in a field with just two things to do And it'll bear good fruit or it'll hold the noose that hangs you You say love's like a tree in a field with just two things to do And it'll bear good fruit or it'll hold the noose that hangs you

Whiskey barrels roll a long, long way But you'll never find a girl like me inside Some girls like the smoke of that rifle that you tote But you'll never win this six gun heart of mine You say you've had a dozen girls before me Well, I reckon I'm just one more egg to crack I told you once, but you just didn't listen This ain't no coop and I ain't no chicken Guess I'm chasing one more rooster out the back Chorus You got yourself a new silver dollar kind of ride With polished chrome and leather all around But give me an old Tennessee fella With a beat down pickup truck of yellow We'll race that shiny Cadillac to town Chorus Instrumental You told me that you fought a great big pack of wolves one day Smoked a big cigar then you skinned them one by one Well, I reckon, son, you might be right But I wrestle bears and smoke dynamite And I'll smoke you, too, with my brand new six gun Chorus No, you'll never win this six gun heart of mine

I wasn't born to travel, I was born to run away Anyplace I end up I probably won't stay But I wasn't born to break hearts, I was born to love I'm just looking for the drifter to join me on the run And after everyone I've left you'd think I would give up Swallow some old pill that says the restless do not love After I'd been hurt you'd think I'd hesitate to trust But you could be the drifter to join me on the run I wasn't born to need you every waking hour of the day I was born to want you exactly this way And I wasn't born to settle like a footprint in cement I was born a bobcat and I'm wild as I can get Chorus Instrumental After everyone I left you'd think I would give up But I'm looking for the drifter to join me on the run I'm looking for the drifter to join me on the run I'm looking for the drifter to join me on the run

Millie in her black dress, black hat, and her black lace veil Coal bead necklace around her neck as she bids her last farewell If I were in Aunt Millie's shoes, I'd tell them to go to hell 'Cause a miner's pay when he's in the grave is pennies in a well Millie met Benjamin when they were seventeen At the miners' dance they first held hands Now she still wears his ring But now she's in a church pew and her mother's by her side And Benjamin is in a box made of Pennsylvania pine Chorus Instrumental The company that he worked for said they were not to blame And Millie was too poor to pay to fight and file a claim So as I stare at that sunlight shining on the old oak floor I wonder if a coal mine looks just like hell's front door Chorus Oh, a miner's pay when he's in the grave is pennies in a well

I never listen to my daddy that much I got a pocket full of numbers he says not to touch He never listens that much to me either Got a pocket full of shells saying "Boy, you better leave her" I gotta say I can't go on this way, I just about lost my mind And if I had to choose between all these fools I tell ya what a fella I'd find I want him lank like Hank, talkin' deep like Randy Wear a pistol 'round his waist, keep me safe like Andy It's a doggone shame I can't win the game To find that sweet lovin' daddy of mine Sifting through cowboys got me in a sweat I got a hundred million dollars and no place to bet I'm rolling dice for a piece of that pie But my odds are feeling low when the stakes are so high One of these days I'll strike it rich and say I'm glad I sunk it here all at once And if I had to choose between all those fools I bet I'd pick the best of the bunch Chorus I searched this whole world over, not a keeper have I found If wishes were white horses, they'd have hauled me outta town Instrumental Chorus It's a doggone shame I can't win the game To find that sweet loving daddy of mine

I threw away some butternut seeds And the rain washed 'em down the road They gathered in the gutter and they sucked up the sun And they grew up the telephone pole Now, I don't have the greenest thumb So this question does ring true: If a washed up squash can get to the line Then, tell me, why can't you? Instrumental I cut away the bush from the box Where the mail lady leaves my mail All of the sudden the letters started coming But none your name did spell Now, I don't have the richest friends So this question does ring true: If singers and tramps can buy them stamps Then, tell me, why can't you? Instrumental

I'm gonna leave your bed in the morning I'm gonna sneak outta the house on you I'm gonna buy you a Cadillac donut 'Cause no other donut's gonna do Well, you have a heart like a cowboy but you don't build fences And it's all that I want to make you mine A maple whiskey bacon or an artisan cream cake one Might make you fall for these old arms this time Yodeling I'm gonna sneak outta the house tomorrow And mosey on down that road I'll bring you a Cadillac donut, I'll bring it to your front door I'm gonna knock til you answer, Take a sweet sugary chance You're gonna love this shoe fly meringue With a hot side of coffee, honey, nobody can stop me I'm gonna make you fall for me, I say Yodeling Instrumental Well, back when my mamma was courting There were Jones's with whom to keep up Now I don't have a lawn and I don't have a car I don't even have my own place to make love But I've got nine dollars and a real big crush And I know exactly what to do So, take note, little Jones's, don't bring red wine and roses Bring a Cadillac donut or two Yodeling Crescendo You're my lady, won't you take me riding in your car-car?

Water, everything I ever owned is under water My little girl and all the things I bought her are under water Those little shoes The land I planted, worked my hands down to the bone I took for granted All the times I wished I could just take a stand and Leave them abandoned and walk on home And my feet are out the window as I hear that bugle call The angels take my hand saying "Come on, have a ball" They holler down from heaven "We shined your crown and pressed your robe" But I'm hangin' onto the rooftop It ain't my time to go All of my brothers like tiny little leaves washed out the gutter Those muddy waves come creeping in and cover Turn all the colors to black and blue Chorus With my feet back in the mud now, an alluvium hill I climb Life fell down like a raindrop, but I try not to mind When you don't have much of nothing There's nothing much to lose Somewhere up there she's kicking off those shoes And my feet are out the window as I hear that bugle call The angels take my hand saying "Come on, have a ball" They holler down from heaven "We shined your crown and pressed your robe" But I'm hangin' onto the rooftop Life fell down like a raindrop But I'm a-gonna stay 'til the rain stops It ain't my time to go

Oh, pie in the window, stew on the stove Got my dress caught in the back screen door But it's four more days 'til I see his face Oh I've never been in love like this before He's been three long weeks out on the road My love's been building up deep inside Oh, I'm gonna show him how much I miss him As soon as he crosses that county line My baby's got a truck with a couch in the front And a bed that is ten feet wide Oh, clothes in the line and jars in the cellar I get bored all alone here without a feller I miss him even at the grocery store Oh, I've never been in love like this before Chorus Whoa, suds in the sink and a cow in the yard And a half tank of gas in my clean little car I've waited 'til I can't wait no more Oh, I've never been in love like this before Chorus My baby's got a truck with a couch in the front And a bed that is ten feet wide
12.
I'm gonna pack all my loving in a shoebox, babe I'm gonna seal it real good with packaging tape I'm gonna put it in my closet, sit down and wait Til my baby gets home to me Well, you might get to giggling 'cause my love's Not in a great big shipping container or packaging crate But when lovin's real good it comes in concentrate So, my shoebox lovin' will do I tried to sew it up in my heart But the doctor said "No, sir!" He just wouldn't do it So, I tried to put it in a canning jar But that wouldn't do You could see right through it So, I put my lovin' in a shoebox I wrapped it up for my baby and me I tried to sew it up in my heart But the doctor said "No, sir!" He just wouldn't do it So, I tried to put it in a canning jar But that wouldn't do You could see right through it So, I put my lovin' in a shoebox I wrapped it up for my baby and me Uh-huh, I wrapped it up for my baby and me Yes sir, I wrapped it up for my baby and me

Honey leaves you feeling better Honey leaves you feeling warm Honey leaves you feeling happy So much happier than you felt before Chorus: But what's real isn't really popular And what makes sense doesn't make much money What hurts me doesn't hurt the rest of you Oh, the taste I know doesn't taste like honey Instrumental Honey's cheap when it's a-plenty Honey's mean when it's a-dry Honey keeps your eyes from crying And it'll help you fall asleep at night Chorus Instrumental Chorus Oh, the taste I know doesn't taste like honey

I like the taste of bacon, pork skins cracklin' hot Fatback in my pinto beans and cornbread all on top I like chicken and dumplings - what a treat to chew upon! Lord, bless the hands that made 'em I will miss them when they're gone. Why don't you bring 'em on home? (Trip down south really knocked me out!) Bring 'em on home (Trip down south really knocked me out!) Trip down south really knocked me out Now, Lordy, won't you bring 'em on home? I swooped down on the biggest peach like a hawk upon a mouse But when I took a bite, the little worm inside Hollered "Get out of my house!" Chorus One crab lived in a mansion, the other one lived in a drain But you couldn't tell, take 'em out of their shell And they sure do look the same Chorus Instrumental Well, mama bear, papa bear, me are three And we all took a trip to the zoo The zookeeper said "Just keep 'em well fed" And now we're down to two Chorus Aw, yes, that trip down south really knocked me out Oh, lordy, won't you bring 'em on home?
