BOYS (2018)

 

HEY JOE

Hey Joe I know you’re workin on your college fund
Saving up to chase women in the college sun
I hope you really make it, hope you be someone
But you’re scared of the dark I don’t care where you’re from

Hey Joe get a case of chevys gonna sip some
Drop a line on top the levy, maybe burn one
And I know you like the women with their skin in the sun
But you’re scared of the dark I don’t care where you’re from

It’s OK Joe, it’s been a long day
And it’s not your fault
Some of this work just ain’t gonna get done

Hey Joe it’s picture perfect then it spins round
Polka-dots up on your curtains on the floor now
And I know you don’t deserve to be let down
Gotta stay out of the dark , but you don’t know how

It’s OK Joe, it’s been a long day
And it’s not your fault
Some of this work just ain’t gonna get done

Hey Joe, I got one more question
How does it feel, to spit that love into a microphone?

GOING TO THE COUNTRY

Going to the country, get a little lonely in my mind
Feelin kinda funky, need to find peace among the pines
No I’m not a junky, but I get high from time to time
No I’m not a junky, but I get high and bide my time

Going to the country, pull my hat down off the shelf
Need a little something, that I can hold all to myself
Hear a little thunder, guess it’s time we bid farewell
Hear a little thunder, chase it like a dog I think I will

And it’s clear that you can’t see, you were wrong sometimes
And it’s clear that you can’t see, you were wrong sometimes

Going to the country, a couple of acres and a beat up Ford
Do a little running, reminisce and let the day unfold
Couldn’t get what I wanted, so I cut out down a long dirt road
Finally knew what I wanted, hey darling think I’m almost gone

And it’s clear that you can’t see, you were wrong sometimes
And it’s clear that you can’t see, you were wrong sometimes
And it’s clear that you can’t see, you were wrong sometimes
And baby it’s clear that you can’t see, you were wrong sometimes

Sometimes…

SO COOL

You feel like a fool when you’re happy snap your fingers along to your favorite song
You look so cool when you do that, feels so good you can’t do no wrong
We hate the law, we hate those rules they made for us
We bent them all, ‘cause breaking rules is still so cool to us

Spent last fall picking apples, off of the tree and into the barn
Reminded me of picking apples, you fell out of the tree and into my arms
We hate the law, we hate those rules they made for us
We bent them all, ‘cause breaking rules is still so cool to us

You know last Christmas, I shoulda kissed you
And I was so afraid for the longest time babe that I’d missed you
We hate the law, we hate those rules they made for us
We bent them all, ‘cause breakin rules is just so cool to us


26

Well I found out yesterday, that I’m in love
And I don’t know what else to say, but thank you Lord
For that sundress on that Saturday
Walking barefoot down the beach
Smell of the rain up in the air, smell the flowers in her hair
And I swear on my life
If you need a joke I’ll be there, 
If you need a smoke here take my spare
I always thought that you were fine.

So what do you say when we’re twenty-six
We’ll get married just for kicks
And move out to Alaska, way up there
I’ll get a job stacking bricks, stay at home with the kids
And I’ll bring the bacon back home to you girl
Making the best of this world.
So what do you say when we’re twenty-six
We’ll get married just for kicks
And move out to Alaska, way up there
I’ll get a job stacking bricks, stay at home with the kids
And I’ll bring the bacon back home to you girl
Never knew how to tell a lie
I’ll be an honest man till I die you know
This young love, its got me high
Making the best of this life.

AUTUMN LEAVES/
NO ESTA AQUI

I was always born to run, got a heart shaped like an apple in the middle of my chest.
Call myself a good man’s son, swinging off the hinges trying to be one.

And it goes like this
I can’t help it now, autumn leaves.

Wear my hat, you unbutton, 
Oh if you knew the spot you’ve got me in
Make me feel as if I’m king, 
Oh I love that eerie song you sing

‘Cause it goes like this
I cant help it now, autumn leaves.

What can I tell you at the end of a line?
How could I tell, you said it at the same time.
Call my bluff and draw your gun, 
I have always known I’d knew the person who’d kill me
As the sea reflects the sun, seems we’ve heard the last of that Cherokee drum

And it goes like this
I can’t help it now, autumn leaves.

What can I tell you at the end of a line?
How could I tell, you said it at the same time.

Mi amor, no esta aqui

COMMON MAN

Common man, six foot tall he stands
Waiting on his date for some company party in France
And she’s late, the boss man said “a quarter till eight”
And as nine rolled around at his watch he’s looking down, the ticking fate.
Oh the funny thing about love is it makes you wait.

He wore his good shoes, now he’s walking them home with the homesick blues
Feeling like he fucked up, it’s all right he’ll get back up because he chooses to.
His overcoat, speckled with snow he walks alone
Just then he turns his head and sees a girl of which they said the poets wrote. 

Don’t hesitate my dear, don’t wait put it all on the line
I’m a leap of faith my dear, and I’m slipping down your spine
I will wait my dear till I’m dead or the end of my time
Or you let me know you’re mine.

He went insane; oh the thought of her tortured his brain
So he retraced his steps so he would not forget where she’d been
But she was gone, just the scent of her lingered on
So he lived all of his days with his head stuck in a maze half stoned

Don’t hesitate my dear, don’t wait put it all on the line
I’m a leap of faith my dear, and I’m slipping down your spine
I will wait my dear till I’m dead or the end of my time
Or you let me know you’re mine. 
Or you let me know you’re mine.

 

JUST WONDERIN

Policeman in a Volvo said she didn’t call
She didn’t call home, and now she’s gone
She didn’t call home, didn’t leave a note.
Somewhere in Nevada they said she drank the water
And now somebody’s daughter, is never coming home
And she didn’t leave a note

The line was tight, The time was right, To hit the road, 
Come on let’s go
She’s living nice, she’s living right there on the coast
Just wonderin, is this the way things go?

Got robbed by a cokehead with pistols up in both hands
Thought about her old man, had to keep on goin
Find herself a nice man, like she knows she can
Some boy like the old times, who says he’d like to spend time
Fireplace and red wine, maybe an early bedtime
Oh he’ll draw a fine line, cuz you’re a fine ass girl

He’ll treat you right, he’ll be polite, most every night, make you a wife
You’ll look so good in white.
Just wonderin, is this the way to spend your life?

Part three:
The old man got a PI who tracked her down in Big Sky
Montana where they hog tie and people get by on white lies
He just stood there wide-eyed, when he saw that girl

She was standing smiling, his heart was wiling
Oh what perfect timing, no time for hiding
The words he couldn’t find em, so he just said “Hi”
I’ll treat you right, I’ll be polite, most every night, make you my wife
You’ll look so good in white
Just wonderin, what I could say to make you mine!


 SONG FOR A FRIEND

All of your life, you’ve been alone
And you have found that it takes time
To heal the wounds of love

Don’t throw your heart out baby
You’re good for another round


All the things you’ve tried, and you’re no good
You’ve got a lot on your mind; you’re so misunderstood

Don’t let yourself go crazy
You’re good for another round
‘Cause its just love, only love. And it hurts.

All of the times, you’ve tried and failed
They hurt like hell, deep inside but you kept your pride, said you did not care

Don’t count yourself out baby
You’re good for another round
‘Cause it’s just love, only love. And it hurts.

BOOKS

Remember we were ridin’ in your car
Not thinking about much, didn’t get too far
Nineteen miles till the gas ran out
And I ain’t ever walk that far before

Tastes like candy and cigarettes
And at that point, I hadn’t tasted anything better yet
Got that love that can make a man
Got those eyes that make a man forget

Say you love me all the way - 
say that you love me too
Say that you’ll call every single day - 
place a phone call for you
And I’ll let you listen to my favorite tapes - 
play my tapes right through
Say that you love me all the way

She said I’ll try to help you if I can
After all this time, you’re still the man
But we’re just books up on a shelf
Try to understand this if you can

Then she giggles like a bubble bath
Oh I love it when you laugh
Rained like pennies in a tin can
There’s only one question left to ask

Do you love me all the way - 
say that you love me too
Say that you’ll call every single day - 
place a phone call for you
And I’ll let you listen to my favorite tapes - 
play my tapes right through
Say that you love me all the way

STRAWBERRIES

Be my mind, don’t like to think for myself all of the time.
Be my soul, look into these eyes like no one before.
Be my light, sunrise laughing cause we stayed up all night.
Be my map, and we’ll leave with all the treasure we can grab.

Be my lake, summer sand and a strawberry milkshake.
Be my pride, stay under my skin, don’t let me take what is not mine.
Be my house, strong and sturdy but far from town.
Be my home, just think of all the places we’ll go.

Be my blood, oh I’d shoot the moon and it wouldn’t be enough.
Be my books, head on your shoulders with damn good looks.
Be my hands, and ill paint your picture darling, the best I can.
Be my heart, I’ve got you in the end I wish I had you from the start.


SEND THE FISHERMAN

This one goes out to my lovely friends
Dark rooms couldn’t dim your innocence
An island in the sun, is all we’re lookin for
And in this sea of sharks we’re just swimming

Pushed off the beaches knowing all too well
There were cracks in the wood, and tissue paper sails
The storm came on a run; we knew that we were done
Sat there laughing at the situation.

Somebody save us somebody save our ship
Somewhere off of the coast out in the Atlantic
And assure yourself my friends we cannot quit this now
The ship is gone and I think its time we swam

Somebody save us somebody get here quick
Send the coast guard, the navy, and the fisherman
And assure yourself my friends that we are shit outta luck
Sleepin at the bottom of the ocean, sinking slow
Feel the pull and the motion of things you think you know

Wait, it’s ok
Haven’t we been here before, haven’t we been here before?
And I said “Hey, what’s your name?”
We can swim right back into shore
Kicking is what these feet are for
