Track Name: Danny
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
Track Name: Only You
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
Track Name: Before Morning
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
Track Name: Like A Fool
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
Track Name: Need Your Love
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
Track Name: 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

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
Track Name: Corn Liquor
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
Track Name: Good Woman
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
Track Name: Next Train Home
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
Track Name: Same For Me
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
Track Name: Keep Me Waiting
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
