Track Name: Sugar Candy Mountain
Every pillow
Is a rock of my struggle
Sugar Candy Mountain

I'm begging for the story
At the naked hour
Sugar Candy Mountain

Rocka my soul
Rocka my soul
Rocka my soul
Rocka my sweet sugar mama ohh

Sunrise sundown
Running from the bloodhounds
Sugar Candy Mountain

Nightfall freedom
Widow's bosom
Sugar Candy Mountain

Rocka my soul
Rocka my soul
Rocka my soul
Rocka my sweet sugar mama ohh

I see tomorrow comin'
And the man is gonna find me
Sugar Candy Mountain

But I curse this vision
So won't you love me, blind me
Sugar Candy Mountain

Rocka my soul
Rocka my soul
Rocka my soul
Rocka my sweet sugar mama oh
Rocka my soul
Rocka my soul
Rocka my soul
Rocka my sweet sugar mama oh
Track Name: The Road Is My Mistress
The road is my mistress, she lays herself down
And she spreads herself out just for me
And I love the road
And I love everything that she brings me
And tonight the road...

Breakfast in a small town
Spinning wheels, black on grey
Plug it in, do my show
Never twice the same way
And I love the road
And I love everything that she brings me
And tonight the road...

Driving hail, starlit skies
Canyons deep, prairies wide,
New skylines, friends new and old
Even the loneliness
And I love the road
And I love everything that she brings me
And tonight the road...

Oh the road is my mistress, she lays herself down
And she spreads herself out just for me
And I love the road
And I love everything that she brings me
And tonight the road...

Brought me you.
Track Name: Scott's Song
Well maybe it's alright if you leave
and nothing happens between you and me.
Maybe it's alright if you stay,
if you just stay you, and I'll just stay me.

I just wanna reach out and touch ya, babe,
but I don't want to get burned.
I can see you're still on fire from the last girl.

Well OK, maybe just one more month.
We could play house and then you could head South
and just leave me alone.
Quit singing your pretty songs and I'll quit trying, babe,
I'll quit trying to sing along.

Something deep down inside me, babe,
said you shouldn't leave yet.
I've got a fistful of sand you could sift through your records for rent.
Track Name: I Ain't Goin' Nowhere
Devil in a blue dress
I'd sing 'em 'Tougher Than The Rest'
Since she got through with me,
It seems my heart's been torn out of my chest
I go through the motions but it ain't like before
Although I may be laughing loud
I'm lying flat upon the floor
My heart won't sing no more

The sun is getting low
And all my friends are putting on their party clothes
Me I'm sitting wondering if I oughta stay or oughta go
Whether I sit right here
Or drag my bones out there
I know
I ain't goin' nowhere.
Track Name: Please Baby
Capo 2. A D E7

Please Baby
Plee-ease Baby
Won't you come back to your daddy one more time?

Please Baby
Plee-ease Baby
When I get my money I will give you my last dime

When you left me babe, you left me feelin' blue
You know that I didn't love no one but you

Please Baby
Plee-ease Baby
Won't you come back to your daddy one more time?

I'm so blue Baby
I'm sooo blue Baby
Can't sleep at night can't hardly talk for cryin'

You know Baby
You know Baby!
You're always forever on my mind

Since you left me babe I can't sleep at night
I go to take my meals I can't eat a bite

Please Baby
Plee-ease Baby
Won't you come back and leave that other man alone?

Please Baby
Plee-ease Baby
I need you here to carry my lovin' home

I know babe that I didn't treat you right
I need your lovin' both day and night

Please Baby
Plee-ease Baby
Won't you come back to you daddy one more time?
Track Name: Wayside
My friend
Wait by the wayside
Linger awhile by the wayside and see
I will come wandering by there in no time
Wait by the wayside for me

When we
Walk along singing
When we walk along singing we'll see
Voices are stronger and sweeter in harmony
Wait by the wayside for me

Sometimes
Things can get dangerous
Sometimes it can be so hard to see
But the road's not so dark when we walk it together
Wait by the wayside for me
Track Name: Strike A Chord
Well you're just another night on the town
and I'm just a drunk buying the next round.
You're just another sad country song
and I'm the slow dancers singing along.

You're just a sinner looking to disappear
and I'm just your ticket getting out of here.
I'm just what daddy calls bad news
and I'm what your mother calls an inviation to the blues.

So please stop pulling on my heart strings, baby
and I'll stop pulling on your heart strings, baby.

You're just another back country road
and I'm an old dog trying to find my way home.
You're just that song thats always stuck in my head
and I won't be happy till I hear you again.

You're just a boy with a sweet melody
and you're just the girl singing my harmonies.
We could watch the sunrise, see what tomorrows gonna be.
Oh cause darlin' you strink a chord in me.

So don't stop pulling on my heart strings, baby
and I won't stop pulling on your heart strings, baby.
Track Name: Gold
All the friends that we have knowed
Will always stay as we grow old
I've seen them last, I've seen them fold
I would not trade you for gold

Im gonna lay down, sleep for a long time
once I leave this place behind
Im gonna wake me, when I'm ready
gonna let that sunshine open up my eyes
once I leave this place behind

When Im rested, Im gonna love you
early in the morning till the night has come
When its night time I'll lay beside you
and we will dream through till the morning sun
early in the morning till the night has come

All the friends that we have knowed
will always stay as we grow old
I've seen them last, I've seen them fold
I would not trade you for gold

If you ruled heaven, I'd be your angel
If you were Queen, I'd be your bee
If you were sunshine, I'd be the ocean
And that way your smile would
Shine down on me
If you were Queen, I'd be your bee

All the friends that we have knowed
Won't always stay as we grow old
I've seen the last and I've seen them fold
I would not trade you for gold
Track Name: Blue Mermaid Dress
Well its quarter to four and my mind is awake
Its finding the pathways that memories take
I find you the way I remember you best
On Burnt Island lake in your blue mermaid dress

I remember you sitting there in the door
It was August of nineteen ninety four
The summer we swam in the green reservoir
There was a song in the hollow of every guitar
All our love yet unmade, all our wine yet to drink
All the fresh garden basil in your kitchen sink
I remember you sitting crouched in the door
And there's no you to even sing this to anymore
Where you are now I can't even guess
But I remember you in your blue mermaid dress

Your blue mermaid dress always got in our way
Like your hair in our mouths in the heat of the day
I remember you loved to jump from rock to rock
I remember you on your cottage dock
Where we rolled and made love and laughed all day
Our laughter ricocheted all around the bay
Your blue mermaid dress all around your waist
I wanted you so long and you gave me a taste

I built us a fire, you remember that?
Sam Cooke was singing That's Where Its At
Aretha knew just how I made you feel
And suddenly all of their music was real
But songs all resolve, the come back to the one
While people just live with the damage they've done
Every song that I've loved I count as my friend
Not even the band knows how this one will end
Cause where you are now I can't even guess
But I remember you in your blue mermaid dress

Its quarter to five and my friends are asleep
These are the hours that memories keep
I was always a nighthawk, but I'm sleeping less
Remembering you in your blue mermaid dress
Track Name: Old Lovers
Where do you meet an old lover? A crowded well lit public place.
You can not lie to old lovers, its written all over your face.
What do you ask an old lover? What their life's like without you.
Why do you need an old lover feeling so sorry for you?

What do you say to old lovers, that they don't already know.
If I knew what to say to old lovers, I'd have no old lovers no more.

When do you meet an old lover? How long does your heart take to heal?
You can't deceive your old lover, they already know how you feel.
Why do you call your old lover when you get kicked out of the bar?
What makes you think your old lover gives a good goddamn where you are?

What do you say to old lovers, that they don't already know?
If I knew what to say to old lovers, I'd have no old lovers no more.

Who do you call an old lover? Is that anyone who's ever seen you undressed?
Or is it the role of old lovers to remind you how much you've been blessed?
Does it hurt you to see me old lover, happy with somebody else?
Do you love me old lover, enough to get over yourself?

What do you say to old lovers, that they don't already know?
If I knew what to say to old lovers, I'd have no old lovers no more.
