Track Name: Aged In Oak
Late night and a bottle of bourbon
Song after song, reading cocaine
Quarter to five in the morning
The poetry hits me like a train

I hit a dry spell lately
Can't think or breathe
Got nothing to show her
But I'd trade fifty new songs
For fifty hangovers

It seems like a simple reward
but oh lord I can't take the drinking

Sometimes a man on a stage hears his soul
Straight up and humble, sober control
And finding her eyes in the lines
He shivers and whispers a song

Sometimes a still drunken voice just sounds right
flows like water, in waves of the night
Your mind it becomes a gun fight, a ghost write

Seems like a moment of truth
Is it still worth something if it's just gonna be gone
Track Name: Outta' This Place
Hand me over my boots
Put something else on the radio
Start driving fast
Get me outta this place

Outta this place
Far away
Outta this place

Hangin’ around with the same old crowd
And its bringin’ me down
Get me outta this stinkin’ town

Outta this place
Far away
Outta this place

Don’t say something you don’t mean
Cause I know what you’re thinking
Don’t pour me another one
Cause I’m on my way

Outta this place
Far away
Outta this place

Hand me over my boots
Put something else on the radio
Start driving fast
Get me outta this place
Track Name: It's Gonna Happen
Breeze on my knees and the big ol' trees and oh they keep swayin
Grass on my jeans and a big plate of beans and oh this is livin

It's gonna happen I can tell
Sun keep rising every mornin
It's gonna happen I can tell

I got a girl in the civilized world and she never has time for singin
Gonna bring her up the hill, show her how to feel and oh we'll be ringin

It's gonna happen I can tell
Sun keep rising every mornin
It's gonna happen I can tell

It's gonna happen I can tell
Sun keep rising ain't it easy
It's gonna happen I can tell
Track Name: Since I Let You Go
Hey baby when I let you go I never knew I'd be so lonesome without you
Hey baby when I let you go I never knew I'd be so lonesome without you

Hey baby get you back again, I got no use for these other women
Hey baby get you back again, got no use for these other women

Hey girl you know it's right, I think about you every night
Hey babe you know it's true, I made mistakes what did I do?

The feeling grows day by day, I know I let you walk away
The feeling grows day by day, I know I let you walk away

Hey baby when I let you go I never knew I'd be so lonesome without you
Hey baby when I let you go I never knew I'd be so lonesome without you
Track Name: Just Like a Slow Burn
I wrote this for you a long time ago
The words were different, the melody slow
I do know that I loved you baby, who knows maybe I still do
But it's hard to find and it's bad timing

She's been up to here, oh my golly
Rain on the sidewalk
The lines are battered
The pavements bruised
It's a slow capture
A blissful muse

I know he knew ya I know he did
Tried to wrestle all the forces I traded
Watching white clouds raining
Timeless memories fading

I remember our conversations
Lazy lust, youthful dilation
It's just drifting smoke, fire fading embers
I should have told you baby, and wrote you that letter

She's been up to here, oh my golly
Rain on the sidewalk
The lines are battered
The pavements bruised
It's a slow capture
A blissful muse

Damn friction and fire eaters
Douse the flames with brave completion
Twisting backwards
Wind cheaters
Blind love
A simple vision
Track Name: Deep Dark Pool
I know you're feeling bad
I feel bad for you
You're caught down at the bottom
Of a deep dark pool
A deep dark pool of love

I'm glad I'm not in your shoes
I can't offer any advice
Let's hope you find a way to break free
Maybe you'll cut a hole in the ice
Of the deep dark pool of love

Well once I was in love
And I thought it was according to plan
On the day that she left me
I took a dive ohhhh man
Into the deep dark pool of love
Track Name: Along The Way
Truth in my saddlebags, dusty crystals I threw away
I couldn't read in to them, unknowing I round the bend
I move along the way, love I had I'll never see again
What difference does it make out here on the range?

On a deep still lake a bird spreads its wings
Over an endless wall, down waterfalls
I move along the way, love I had I'll never see again
What difference does it make out here on the range?

Back in the town again
In a bar with my faithful friends
I saw you standing there
Long blonde hair
Track Name: Take Me Back Home
A poor boy lost, for his choice he's paid the cost
He can't go back to his Mom and his Dad

Take me back home
Show me the way

Lay me down on top of that hill
Where the pale morning sun took away the evening chill

Take me back home
Show me the way

Take me home
I don't wanna roam no more

But for now I ride this train, its just to ease the pain
I don't know what state I'm in, Texas, a dream or Wisconsin

Take me back home
Show me the way
Take me back home
Show me the way
Take me back home
Pull me of this train
Take me back home
I need to get some rest some day

But back at home I would be alone
