Wilder Side 04:34
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

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

Run Away 04:07
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

Holy Mother 03:44
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
5.
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
6.
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
7.
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
8.
Wild Bird 03:47
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

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
