Danny 04:48
Danny’s back in Reno on a binge You showed up at his hotel but he wouldn’t let you in He screamed something pretty ugly When you knocked upon the door Told you, “Honey, don’t you come ‘round here no more” How can he be angry when you told him from the start Your intentions and the habits of your heart You’d love him when you needed him Or till you found somebody new He knew it but he still won’t forgive you You’re like the desert wind Warm and gentle till the breezes shift Then you’re reckless Rough and reckless, desert wind You’ll leave the way you got here in a borrowed, beat-up van Go looking for a California man You’ll go racing down the highway Till the white lines disappear Kicking dust up till you find your way back here You’re like the desert wind Warm and gentle till the breezes shift Then you’re reckless Rough and reckless, desert wind Danny’s back in Reno on a binge You showed up at his hotel but he wouldn’t let you in

Only You 04:24
Take me honky tonkin’, swing me round the room I want to spend the night, dancing next to you I know a place where we can go I know what I need when I’m feeling low You, honey only you You are like heaven, above my cloudy skies You know how to take the pain away and dry my eyes The others sure do treat me fine But they don’t know how to ease my mind Like you, honey only you I’ve been feeling sad, blue as I can be I’ve been dreaming of you next to me In your arms where I belong Heel to toe all night long With you, honey only you You are like heaven, above my cloudy skies You know how to take the pain away and dry my eyes The others sure do treat me fine But they don’t know how to ease my mind Like you, honey only you When the band starts to play, my blues begin to fade Honey take my hand and lead the way The dance floor calls like the Promised Land Lay my burdens down, by you I’ll stand You, honey only you You are like heaven, above my cloudy skies You know how to take the pain away and dry my eyes The others sure do treat me fine But they don’t know how to ease my mind Like you, honey only you

Last night, you said you were leaving You know I’ve heard that before But I just woke up to the sound of packing And your old boots walking the floor Please don’t leave me before morning I do think it’s more than I could stand At least wait for the sun to come up That’s one more day I’ll be your man There are times I know I’ve mistreated And you, lord you’ve done nothing wrong I’ll straighten up and treat you right It’s in my arms you belong Please don’t leave me before morning I do think it’s more than I could stand At least wait for the sun to come up That’s one more day I’ll be your man Your mind seems set on leaving This time, maybe it’s true I know there’s nothing that you owe me But there’s one thing that I ask of you Please don’t leave me before morning I do think it’s more than I could stand At least wait for the sun to come up That’s one more day I’ll be your man I still want to be your man

Like A Fool 02:49
Please don’t call me tonight Don’t come and find me at the bar Don’t send no more of those looks in my direction Please don’t call me to tonight Left me like a man Burned me like a fire Played me for a fool Loved you like a man Loved you like a fire Loved you like a fool Please don’t say sorry tonight No apologies for running around Don’t want to think about you in someone else’s arms Please don’t say sorry tonight Left me like a man Burned me like a fire Played me for a fool Loved you like a man Loved you like a fire Loved you like a fool

When first we met, right then I knew The one I’d been searching for was you My heart beat and my knees went weak You asked my name and I could barely speak I need your love to see me through I need your love to see me through What’ll it take to make you mine? I’d never seen a girl so fine Dress was long and your hair was down Smiled my way when I came to town Now I need your love to see me through I need your love to see me through How can I show you, honey? What can I do? To prove my love and how I need you What if I begged, darling? What if I cried? What if I told you a million times? That I need your love to see me through I need your love to see me through Came to me, it was like a dream You were gold and I was king Took me in that August night Then I knew everything would be alright And I need your love to see me through I need your love to see me through I need your love to see me through

Come on and kiss me, someone good Make me feel the way I should I’ve been angry, acting crazy Over you No I don’t want to miss you, don’t want to forgive you When I’m out loving someone new I just one someone I can rely on And know to be true Baby it ain’t you No I don’t need roses, turned up noses Hoity-toity jubilee Just want some loving that makes me feel something Like weak in the knees Baby it ain’t you Come on and kiss me, someone good Make me feel the way I should I’ve been angry, acting crazy Over you He doesn’t need to stay over or phone tomorrow Or let me call him my man Just needs to feel lucky when I come knocking And love me again Baby it ain’t you Come on and kiss me, someone good Make me feel the way I should I’ve been angry, acting crazy Over you Baby it ain’t you

Corn Liquor 03:06
Bottle of corn liquor, bottle of rye Drank all I could find in the cupboard last night Bottle of corn liquor, bottle of rye Drank all I could find in the cupboard last night I’m out in the country, you’re out on the town You think I don’t know you’re fooling around Bottle of corn liquor, bottle of rye Drank all I could find in the cupboard last night I’m hanging around, sad as it seems Just sitting here waiting for the phone to ring Bottle of corn liquor, bottle of rye Drank all I could find in the cupboard last night Sun came up, a few drinks more You never came knocking at my door Bottle of corn liquor, bottle of rye Drank all I could find in the cupboard last night Bottle of corn liquor, bottle of rye Drank all I could find in the cupboard last night

Good Woman 05:36
Everything you own has gone to rust Can’t find a man, can’t make a choice That a good woman would trust On and on and on, keep looking for change But list after list, for three damn years Every wish has been the same Keep the house clean Be better at things Write more of it down Quit worrying I can’t seem to get through the simplest chores Bills I owe, last season’s clothes Always piled by the door Sneak a sip from the bottle now and then Don’t remind me that I told you to keep me From drinking it all again Keep the house clean Be better at things Write more of it down Quit worrying You can’t change if nothing is changing You can’t change if nothing is changing I get so caught up, grand plans in the making Am I getting by? Because I’ve lost sight Of what’s real and what I am faking Oh lord, I’m paralyzed by wanting A little more time, money that’s mine Would I be happy then? Keep the house clean Be better at things Write more of it down Quit worrying

I want to marry you ‘neath the apple tree in my front yard I want to share with you my deepest secrets I want the world to know that I love you So baby take the next train home Baby take the next train home to me I’ve been waiting for oh so long Now the only thing that I can do Is write these sad, silly love songs Let’s paint maps across the bedroom and the kitchen walls Go to Egypt and Peru Baby come and trot the globe with me Can’t think of nothing better to do Baby take the next train home to me Feeling lonesome and oh so blue I won’t make it through another night If I’m not next to you Let’s plant lilies in our garden Keep a piano in the living room We’ll dance and sing past midnight I’ll play the banjo, you bring your kazoo Baby take the next train home to me I’ve been waiting for oh so long You’re the sweetest man I’ve ever loved So I’ll shower you with sweet love songs I’ll shower you with sweet love songs

Same For Me 04:42
Did I see you in the morning? Or did you leave without a trace? With nothing but a memory Of the smile on your face Of the smile on your face Did you head back the lowlands? Somewhere way down south Are you seeing family? Are you figuring it out? Are you figuring it out? Did you know that I was crying? On that summer day When in my arms I held you Before you went away Before you went away Don’t you worry ‘bout me Wherever you might be I’ll hold your memory dearly Do the same for me Do the same for me

You came to me and you looked in my eyes You came to me and you looked in my eyes You came to me and you looked in my eyes Oh, you came to me I’ve been trying for so long To get your attention and to take you home Darling tell me what am I to do To keep from crying over you Well come on and let me touch your hand Come on and let me touch your hand Come on and let me touch your hand I hope you understand I’ve been trying for so long To get your attention and to take you home Darling tell me what am I to do To keep from crying over you Every time I come on you keep me waiting Every time I come on you keep me waiting Every time I come on you keep me waiting Keep me waiting for you I’ve been trying for so long To get your attention and to take you home Darling tell me what am I to do To keep from crying over you Well I don’t know but I think I love you I don’t know but I think I love you I don’t know but I think I love you I’ve almost come undone I’ve been trying for so long To get your attention and to take you home Darling tell me what am I to do To keep from crying over you To keep from crying over you
