She says leave us alone Don't you dig a tunnel near my watering hole We've been through this before And you ain't gonna fool us anymore You can do what you wanna go out and explore But don't you dare dig a tunnel under my watering hole He says you ought to go Don't you make me get my fire hose Wait till the light is low You gonna get yourself all kinds of cold Don't you tempt my anger this much you should know We're gonna dig that tunnel under your watering hole Could've gone through Bismarck gone through Cannonball They didn't want a dirty life at all Could've gone through Bismarck gone through Cannonball They didn't want a dirty life at all When you look out on the hill Creeping on in to the watering well They smile when they kill Ain't nothing but a little black oil spill You say you're righteous say you're pure and whole Don't you dare dig a tunnel under my watering hole You say you're righteous say you're pure and whole Don't you dare dig a tunnel under my watering hole --------------------------

Sailing Song 02:51
All the blue On the sea Carries you Back to me From the Gulf To the Keys See those clouds Moving in Hurry now Catch the wind Wind she'll blow You home to me I would sail with you Anywhere you wanted to I would sail with you Plan to see Everything Every fall Every spring You should bring Your guitar On the bow We could lay Find our stars Feel the wake Wake she'll rock You close to me I would sail with you Anywhere you wanted to I would sail with you I would sail with you Anywhere you wanted to I would sail with you credits

Bad Stories 02:53
Well, come on down to the fireside There's coffee and guitars around Two cast skillets, potatoes frying The gentle river sound It goes oh my lanta oh my my In the city you'll only find Too many bad stories want a few good lullabies You don't need a reason Ain't no ticket no toll Ya hop on up the trail There's madness on the mountain Magic in the valley And nothing on a Richter scale It goes oh my lanta oh my my You're feeling too confined Leave all the bad stories for a few good lullabies And when you close your eyes You think up something nice Rest your weary mind You're safe in paradise Ya leave downtown and ya head on down To the wonder of the BLM There ain't no screens No washing machines Or news on our president It goes oh my lanta oh my my Ain't no place left to hide From all the bad stories want a few good lullabies There's too many bad stories I'd like more good stories now

When I saw you Yesterday It'd been a longtime Very longtime I guess I ain't over you Spent a longtime Longing for you Deep in the city Life gets so grey I heard that there's pastures Not too far away Then there's no knowing What I'll find today I spent a longtime Longing for you I hear the subway And I feel it pass I go to the bodega For a few beers and a scratch Only I'm no lucky winner Seems today I just loose I spent a longtime Longing for you I wanna be wild I wanna be free Look at that antelope See what I mean There ain't no lying What ya trying to prove Spent a longtime Longing for you But don't y'all worry I'll be just fine Met a lot of good people Lot better than I'm And you can't blame the dealer No we all gotta choose I spent a longtime I been longing for you I spent a longtime Longing for you

Sometimes Monday mornings I'm wishing I was stoned I don't feel like work today I'd rather stay home You used to lay right next to me But now I'm on my own The years pass, these memories last I keep missing something old Meet me in Gypsum Where those lonesome cattle feed We will start over We'll have everything we need Well I know he don't treat you right You only call me when it's bad And I've seen better men eat out of garbage cans By that I-5 overpass Don't you fool yourself in thinking We all learn from our pasts As soon as loneliness returns You'll wind up going back Meet me in Gypsum Where those lonesome cattle feed We will start over We'll have everything we need Meet me in Gypsum Where those lonesome cattle feed We will start over We'll have everything we need
