Track Name: Wilder Side
I’ve got a wilder side
I sleep all day and stay up all night
Hallelujah we made it out alive
Cause I’ve got a wilder side

CHORUS
I’m driving all night just to be alone
Sweet baby James singing on the radio
It’s been so long since I’ve heard from you
What’s a wild girl to do

I’ve got a lonesome heart
But you only need light when the daytime is dark
I’m always putting love together to take it apart
I’ve got a lonesome heart

CHORUS

I’ve got a gypsy soul
I can’t stay here so I’ll go
Gone with the wind and out with the old
I’ve got a gypsy soul
Track Name: Highway Rider
I heard the wings of a buzzard in my ear
It’s cold here in Texas but it’s that time of year
I came up from the coast and it was fine
There’s a little place hanging on to the earth that I could make mine

CHORUS
May these six wheels take me far
Everyday I move on
Time is money and I got nothing but time
And a highway rider

Home is where the heart is, ain’t that a shame
I can’t seem to keep my heart in the same place
I’ll take to the wind, I’ll take to the sky
Ce la vie till I die

May these six wheels take me far
Everyday I move on
Time is money and I got nothing but time
And a highway rider


I like the wind, I like the rain
I like the way you said my name
I like the look in your eye
I don’t ever want to say goodbye
but I’m a highway rider
Track Name: Run Away
I don’t want nobody I don’t what nobody right now
I want to live the good life and I will probably never settle down
I want to live by the water and set my soul on fire
Hand off the truth, hand off the truth to the liars

CHORUS
Maybe someday we can run away
Maybe someday we can run away
You will tell me that you love me
And I will tell you that I cannot stay

I wanna talk to my grandmother and hold her hand
Have a helluva good time doing the best that I can
I don’t have a lot of money I don’t have a lot of security
Ask anyone who loves me and they’ll tell you that its alright by me

CHORUS

Let’s go to Paris we’ll go half way around the world
I’ll pretend that you are mine and you will think that I’m your girl
So come on honey, come on baby, come on darlin lets jump right in
I am tired of this old life, I’m ready for a new one to begin
Track Name: Holy Mother
Holy mother won’t you come down
Me and the girls are going out on the town
We’re probably gonna drink too much wine
But if you come down we will be just fine

CHORUS
Don’t let any of us drink gasoline
Tequila or whiskey is alright with me
Don’t you let any of us go home with a guitar man
Or anyone else in the band

Holy mother pray for us now
If there’s a jar of moonshine you pass it around
All eyes on Lurleen she’s looking for a fight
Won’t you pray for us so we make it thought the night

CHORUS

Holy mother forgive us now
For what might happen over the next 8 hours
I’m gonna do my best not to let you down
But me and the girls are going out on the town

CHORUS

Holy mother won’t you come down
Me and the girls are going out on the town
Track Name: Everything You Need
I came down to the coast of Texas
carrying your broken heart
I was looking for a good place to leave it
looking for a new start
I know you still think about me
I know I took everything
You will heal and I’ll sing

CHORUS A/E/A/E 046600/02400/002200
I’ve got open roads and a wide open sky
I’ve got dreams that won’t pass me by
I’ve got bluebonnets
and someone who likes me
I hope you have everything you need

I left that town like a wanted man
I couldn’t get far enough away
And I hope you know that i’m still running to this day
I’m so sorry I screwed up
My heart got carried away
When it gets caught I can’t keep up
And I always end up running away

CHORUS

It’s been a long time since I saw your face
It’s been a long time since I was in the same place
I can’t remember the last time I counted the days
I hope you have what you need
I hope you your not still thinking that it’s me
Cause I’m not lonely but I am alone

CHORUS
Track Name: Medicine River
Take me down to those Wichita Mountains
South of my home town
Lay me in that Medicine River
And I’ll be home again

You have loved me before and you will love me once more
It is written in the stars
I wanna be where the buffalo roam
I want to call you call you home

Kiss me softly in the moonlight
On that old Curtis bridge
Then wash my sins in the Medicine River
And I’ll be whole again

Brother take your bride to the Wichita Mountains
South of our home town
Say I do where the water runs wide
I hope she loves you till the day that you die
Track Name: Take Me Home With You
I came here alone
And I see you don’t have anyone
I miss somebody
I miss someone

CHORUS
Take me home with you
And let me lay this burden down
Wrap me up in your arms
And keep me safe till the morning comes around

Yeah I’m doing fine
I’m just gone all the time
And that old song “I ain’t got no home”
I sing it every night

CHORUS

I’ll be gone before I know it
I’ll lock the door when I go
And I hope you think about me
Even if nobody knows

CHORUS
Track Name: Wild Bird
A wild bird, a humming bird and a lark
I keep you locked up in a locket close to my heart
Go to heaven on a big jet plane get your passport stamped and come back again
Tell me stories about the good old days
When everyone I know and love was safe

When everybody is under ground
Rain won’t stop it keeps falling down
And I don’t know who to blame
For the things I cannot change

Now I’m half way across the country
Watching storms blow away my city
Hoping everyone there will be left alone, safe and sound when I get back home
Telling stories about the good old days
When everyone I know and love was safe

When everybody is under ground
Rain won’t stop it keeps falling down
And I don’t know who to blame
For the things I cannot change

I’m not God, I can’t turn back time
I can’t move, my hands are tied
I’ve called and called but I can’t get through
Sitting here and I think of you

When everybody is under ground
Rain won’t stop it keeps falling down
And I don’t know who to blame
For the things I cannot change
Track Name: See the Devil Run
Sunday morning ain’t a cloud in the sky
In an old sanctuary hidden by the Memphis skyline
I take my seat in the front row
Closer to God, closer to the show

CHORUS
Let the tambourine ring and the organ hum
Gather ‘round good people
You’re gonna see the devil run
Let your body dance and your heart give love
Gather ‘round good people
You’re gonna see the devil run

In their best church hats and their bright colored suits
The man with the microphone gives the a cue
They come to the front with their hands in the air
He waves the white towel and they dance like they don’t care

CHORUS

In comes the good reverend with a smile on his face
In robes and white gloves he stands so strong in this place
And then he starts singing like its coming straight out of heavens gates
Better that “Love and Happiness”, better than “Standing in the Rain”

CHORUS
