Track Name: Wild Imagination
My imagination use to run wild
Until it got caught by a cowboy
It use to run and jump and flicker around
And now it's just a broken fantasy

It use to be out dancing, on any given night
It use to tell me secrets, it use to get in fights
But now with all this trouble, I've scared it away
And now it just don't run in any way

Gitty up, gitty up, my imagination
Gitty up, gitty up, my old friend
Gitty up, getty up, I can't live like this
I really want you back again

Last night I was sitting home alone with my imagination
When it said Jessie, I've been feeling run down and tired
I'm not blaming you and your wild ways, I just need a break
But don't worry, we'll be back in the saddle one day

It use to be out dancing, on any given night
It use to tell me secrets, it use to get in fights
But now with all this trouble, I've scared it away
And now it just don't run in any way

Gitty up, gitty up, my imagination
Gitty up, gitty up, my old friend
Gitty up, getty up, I can't live like this
I really want you back again
Track Name: Country Jo
When I'm walking down the street, I try to smile at those I meet
It's nice to spread some love around
It's hard for some folks to smile back, They're afraid their face might crack
But I think there's medicine for that
I've been eating aspartame, that may be why I've got no game
They're trying to kill us what's a girl to do
I know how hard things can be, happy don't come easily
Quit your crying I've got problems too

But life is great, so far, playing this guitar
Really takes the blues away, for a while, for a while

I've been reading lots of books, turns out the world is full of crooks
Maybe I'll join them, wait I already have
Death is scary I'm afraid to say, I think about it everyday
Another drink or cigarette away

But life is great so far, playing this guitar
Really takes the blues away, for a while, for a while

Til it's all the same(drink, drink, drink, drink)
The same(drink, drink, drink, drink)

Twinkle, twinkle little star, would you buy me a new car
Something fast and shiny that will do
Half the people that I meet, Think they know much more than me
I see elves and giants in my sleep
I see elves and giants in my sleep
Track Name: Eeyore
Here we go just another day I, I, I
Will we find one more reason to cry, I ,I
Feel the hope and insanity I, I, I
Weighs me down with its gravity I, I, I

Living to love and loving to live
Easy to say but harder to give
Belong to yourself and nothing can fail
Fighting your fears and blazing your trail
Today, today, today, today
Your way, your way, your way, your way

Feel the push of society I, I ,I
The spice of life is variety, I, I ,I
The world has got so competitive I, I, I
And now we're all taking sedatives I, I, I

What can you do to make it feel right
Choosing to dream, don't put up a fight
Now is the time to have it your way
Say what you mean and mean what you say
Today, today, today, today
Your way, your way, your way, your way
Track Name: I've Been Thinking
I've been thinking, you've been drinking, what is on my mind
There's a problem, can we solve it, in this paradigm
Just the two of us, getting through the mess
Make the best of it, it's not over yet

Feeling hollow, do you follow, what can fill me up
Need an answer, for this cancer, feeding from our cup
Just the two of us, getting through the mess
Make the best of it, it's not over yet

Feel the Sun, warming everyone
Melt your cares away
Feel the Sun, tensions come undone
Love is here to stay

Lets awaken, what's forsaken, we can't let this die
No distractions, or retractions, mountains we can't climb
Just the two of us, getting through the mess
Then we resurrect, it's not over yet

Feel the Sun, warming everyone
Melt your cares away
Feel the Sun, tensions come undone
Love is here to stay
Track Name: Olde October Moon
Old October Moon, been felling like you're going to shine real soon
Save some light for me, and show me all the things I can not see
The world is your witness and your slave
We follow your waxing and your wane
What have you brought, what will you bring
Please hear our voices as we sing

Swirly midnight blue(hovers thick orange magic)
Wind whispers secrets known by only you
Floating mystic kite(hovers thick orange magic)
Your power surges on this starry night
The world is your witness and your slave
We follow your waxing and your wane
What have you brought, what will you bring
Please hear our voices as we sing

Everybody see's you everybody needs what you have done to me
Everybody see's you everybody needs what you have done to me

I can see your face, it's calling me back to that sacred place
Won't you let me fly
Fly the great October sky, fly the great October sky
On my invisible broom
Olde October moon
Track Name: Rider on a White Horse
I have walked, walked on your water
And I have, parted your Sea
I have known, all of your children
Some of your, women love me

I'm like a rider on a white horse, I'm like a rider on a white horse,
I'm like a rider on a white horse, going nowhere, going nowhere
I've always been here

The dike, the dike that you're building
May hold, hold back the Sea
But the dike, the dike that you're building
Will never, will never hold back me

I'm like a rider on a white horse, I'm like a rider on a white horse,
I'm like a rider on a white horse, going nowhere, going nowhere
I've always been here
Track Name: Too Drive to Drunk
I'm too drive to drunk, I'm too drunk to drive
And everyone knows, I won't make it alive
Well I've made some new friends, I've has a good laugh
I've fell on the floor, now I need a hot bath
Yeah I've talked a big game, I've settled some scores
But tomorrow won't lie, my head will be sore

I don't have time, to read between the lines
Don't waste my time, just take me home tonight
Maybe then, I will finally see, this ain't the life for me
Or is it

Well I've had my fair share, now it's time to go home
But God only knows, and can't find it alone
Yeah my lipstick is smeared, and my lungs are a mess
My tab has reached heights, I'm afraid to address
Yeah I'm too drive to drunk, whoa I can't see the road
Please be a good friend and just take me home

I don't have time, to read between the lines
Don't waste my time, just take me home tonight
Maybe then, I will finally see, this ain't the life for me

I'm too drive to drunk, I'm too drive to drunk
I'm too drive to drunk, I'm too drive to drunk
I'm too drive to drunk
Track Name: Country Lullaby
Eyes are bluer than the ocean, smile is brighter than the sun
Filling others with emotion, Mother's story has begun
Gleaming eyes they follow you with a sentimental gaze
Sharing tender conversation, taking time to count the ways

Face is full of fascination, endless wonders are abound
Steps are coming but remember, when your feet are off the ground
Loving hands are holding you they will never let you fall
Place a photo in the album, for the days that we recall

So long, mist in your eyes
So long, mist in your eyes
Giving love it comes back in ample supplies
Slowly, oh slowly, are dreams realized
Track Name: Honky Tonkin'
Honky Tonkin', honky tonkin'

Can you share with me what our cause use to be
I can see that the path that we chose doesn't show but I know
It's a tired old scene, the American dream
Cause this roof always leaks and my fence has begun to erode

So we jump in the car and we head to the bar
Where the faces have traces of hardships we've all come to know
Where the drinks hit you strong and we all sing along
Til our feelings are in the right place and the heartache is gone

Your shrinks and pills don't heal the pain
A drink in the mouth keeps my head in the game
We go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'
So pick up a glass you'll be glad you came
The lights and the sound will die down and tomorrow's the same
They'll make it so hard then you're sad again

Your shrinks and pills don't heal the pain
A face with a smile can be hard to retain
We go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'

So pick up a glass you'll be glad you came
The lights and the sound will die down and tomorrow's the same
They'll make it so hard then you're sad again
Don't you know, they'll make it so hard then you're sad again
Don't you know, they'll make it so hard then you're sad again
