No Star 02:58
no star heaven’s gone and the lights come on the engine sings for me chasing minutes around the dial a little closer but never free deputy, a man on the run ain’t worth a bullet from his gun no star in this west texas night will see the morning light six miles to the line, when they hit me this time siren’s blazing in my rearview mirror pulled over with a lifetime to lose just then the stars disappeared chorus never had much luck, til the dust storm struck the dirt in my lung kept the blood from my hand sometimes the devil takes care of his own no stars over the rio grande no stars over the rio grande no stars over the rio grande
Housecat 02:21
housecat i’m your housecat, I’m out in the street you’re my nine lives, but I go the key to drive you crazy over me late at night, tom cat prowling I slink on by, when I hear you yowling I’m so high, do you want to swing Tomcat, I like what you do Black cat when you light the fuse Fat cat full of cream and booze Housecat when you put the moves
Forgiveness 05:36
forgiveness on highway ten speedtrap hundred miles an hour cadillac backstabbing rat all my money hijacked forgiveness its's so hard to find forgiveness penitentiary mean law man killing machine five long years sight unseen parole peaches and cream chorus in my lungs another pack in my pocket another stack in my bedroom -! and in my soul nothing but love, nothing but love chorus forgiveness....... you gotta reach way down in your soul you gotta look all over forgiveness it's so hard to find
buckhorn saloon the highway is walking right under my wheels the sirens flash with sex appeal the outlaw sings what nobody can say and everything is free if you know what to say come on baby, it's time to go to a place where the angels roam a little piece of heaven ain't so far away but it takes a bullet or a lie to stay i met a ghost at the buckhorn saloon she took me upstairs to her pink satin room i said tell me a secret every mortal should know she said gather flowers and let them all go chorus too many ghosts running through my soul so i drink whiskey and it takes its toll if there's one truth all the outlaws know to get to the light you got to cross the shadow chorus
The City 05:05
the city she is rough as the place that she's from tornadoes and tumble weeds blowing across the texas plain her wild eyes have seen too much but her rough lips have a soft touch blue bells blooming in the rain but in the city, they pretend that love, is the devil's best friend she don't always care in the end he is broken, a shadow of the love that he never had the highway is the only home he knows they had springtime that shone brighter than the city lights and now he's gone, and she don't feel a thing chorus they met in a maelstrom when he held her the wind died down birds were singing all around chorus
skank everybody knows she's a skank cigarettes, shiny clothes and drank and still she hopes i'm shooting blanks cause she knows i'm a skank too met her down by the flying j she passed my truck and said, are you ok and i guess i had one hell of a day cause i invited her in for a drink she smelt like that walmart perfume chili cheese burgers, and diesel fumes and she took to drinking, all my booze and said baby, what do you need i said buck townsend don't need your love but we can smoke a crack pipe riding, in my truck we left el paso headed for la but we didn't make it the whole way we got a room at the motel 6 where the lizards get there kicks and i didn't even get whiskey dick she's an american fox chorus x2
Kool Aid 04:15
kool aid she said wait before i go and let me unload these parting words like poison in your glass said you lied and you ran round you put me down and in the end i see your eyes are cold and then she whispered in my ear and said i hate you dear and love is just a word that i wish you never heard from me and each word that escaped was a new line on my face a map of all the mistakes that put me here and i said words are cheap hope you find what you need thought you, could fill me up but that was kool aid in my cup
Six Miles 03:03
six miles fields burning storm raining down lighting dancing all over this town i see a rider second and third and the fourth is singing like i never heard if the sun don't there's another star a fallen angel to kiss my scars six miles beyond the parish line she'll be waiting for me when it's my time night falling wind picking up roads flooded guess i'm stuck hear the devil calling from the bottle in my hand telling me what the angel's don't understand chorus chorus
Jailbird 03:37
jailbird i got to leave this is not my home but its sure been good not being alone please don't shed not tears for my heart of stone when the the morning birds sing i will be gone oh oh my mistress is the sunrise, but i'm married to a ghost i only see in the songs i love most she's cast a vicious spell on me i never can undo so i may take you by the hand but i'll never be true going back to new orleans where the ghosts run free gonna sit by the river let my soul bleed when the pen hits the paper that needle hits the groove and the speakers come alive medicate and soothe that's when i see my love when she comes close to me and there's nothing above that i need oh oh chorus
two cigarettes two cigarettes and a thousand miles til i see the dawn light shining in your eyes silver moon is a fine disguise for love whiskey bottles and wasted time, drawn on a face i know the truth this time because i never felt such grace there ain't nothing short of dying that's got the promise that you hold nothing in this living that makes a wistful heart so bold i know you're sweet as springtime when you don't feel the pain so i'm throwing down my cards love and i ain't playing no games stars are shooting the heavens and their shooting in my brain but there ain't no light up in the sky that could help me to refrain from giving you the warmest thoughts each of those seven days and giving you some loving when that morning comes again chorus if i'm the only one you want and the only one you need and if my winsome words cast light where you already see and if you know this is a part of a much greater plan look me in the eye take my hand chorus
Spaceship 05:04
spaceship so much light from a distant star the strongest memory is the biggest scar you're sailing through the universe i'm shooting novocaine don't know if i'd rather forget or feel the pain you left here in a burning spaceship six feet long six inches thick i hope that the people see a little bit of you in me your love was a blissful state now i can't relate i ain't afraid of fate or being alone but when the fire cools don't matter if you win or lose just matters how the stars appear you left here in a burning spaceship six feet long six inches thick i hope that the people see a little bit of you in me your love was a blissful state now i can't relate i ain't afraid of fate or being alone but when the fire cools don't matter if you win or lose just matters how the stars appear
