Track Name: Stick Shifts And Safety Belts
Stickshifts and safetybelts
Bucket seats have all got to go
When we're driving
In the car
It makes my baby seem so far
I need you here with me
Not way over in a bucket seat
I need you to be here with me
Not way over in a bucket seat

But when we're driving in my Malibu
It's easy to get right next to you
I say, "Baby, scoot over please"
And then you're right there next to me
I need you here with me
Not way over in a bucket seat
I need you to be here with me
Not way over in a bucket seat

Well, a lot of good cars
Are Japanese
But when we're driving far
I need my baby, I need my baby
Next to me

Well, stickshifts and safetybelts
Bucket seats have all got to go
When we're driving in the car
It makes my baby seem so far
I need you here with me
Not way over in a bucket seat
I need you to be here with me
Not way over in a bucket seat
Track Name: I Want To Be A Cowboy Sweetheart
I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
I want to learn to rope and to ride
I want to ride o'er the plains and the deserts
Out west of that great divide
I want to hear the coyotes howlin'
While the sun sinks in the West
I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
That's the life I love the best

(Yodeling)

I want to ride Old Paint get him on a run
I want to feel the wind in my face
A thousand miles from all the city lights
Goin' a cowhand's pace
I want to pillow my head near the sleeping herd
While the moon shines down from above
I want to strum my guitar and yodelay-hee-hoo
Oh that's the life that I love

(Yodeling)

I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
I want to learn to rope and to ride
I want to ride o'er the plains and the deserts
Out west of that great divide
I want to hear the coyotes howlin'
While the sun sinks in the West
I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart
That's the life I love the best

Track Name: Howlin' At The Moon
Tonight I’m feeling jumpy, sort of not so right. I need to get away. This place is way to quiet.
But my spirit’s feeling heavy and my pulse is barely pumpin’.
Oh Lordy, I need somethin’.

I’ve been feeling empty, sort of hung to dry.
My heart’s been kinda lonely for my own sweet guy.
It’s just a state of mind, that’s what my grandma used to say.
Out of sight and out of mind, I’m feelin’ like I’m left behind and

I’m going out to change my story.
I’m gonna sing a different tune.
Gonna find some lights, going out tonight.
I’m goin’ howlin’ at the moon.

How long have I been sitting in my favorite chair?
When’s the last time that I had a flower in my hair?
This sudden bit of insight isn’t something I had reckoned.
I swear that I’ve been beckoned.

I’ll grab my little dress that’s got the extra swing.
The kind that in the movies they say, “What, this old thing?!”
How could I have forgotten that I like a slight commotion?
Out of sight and out of mind, I’m feelin’ like I’m left behind and

I’m going out to change my story.
I’m gonna sing a different tune.
Gonna find some lights, going out tonight.
I’m goin’ howlin’ at the moon.

Oh, it’s when you least expect it. You fancy meeting someone soon.
It doesn’t matter what comes next it’s
Pretty sure the only cure is howlin’ at the moon!

I wonder if I’ll have a single thing to say.
Will anybody even dare to come my way?
It doesn’t really matter cause I’m making my correction
And I’m changing my direction.


I’m heading for that haze that’s shining in the sky.
I’m not about to let my life just pass me by.
I’m going for a win, they better damn well let me in!
Shine me up and tease my hair and push me towards the county fair.

I’m going out to change my story.
I’m gonna sing a different tune.
Gonna find some lights, going out tonight.
I’m goin’ howlin’ at the moon.

I’m gonna take a new direction.
I’ll hum a long forgotten tune.
Gonna meet some folks gonna tell a couple jokes.
I’m goin’ howlin’ at the moon.
I need a good cajole, cause I fell into a hole.
But now I’m howlin’ at the moon.
Track Name: I'll Ask
One day I’ll ask love to make me aware
How you know that it’s here when you can’t see it there
How it can cut to the bone without piercing your skin
I’ll ask if it comes back again

Love, you were here
When you lifted me up, I felt you so clear
But what so distracted your interest that day?
You left me and went on your way

One day I’ll ask love to make me aware
How you know that it’s here when you can’t see it there
How it can cut to the bone without piercing your skin
I’ll ask if it comes back again

I’m balanced oh, I’m ready
I won’t thrash out like I’m drowning I’m steady
I won’t give or take too much, I promise, I can just be still
If you want me to keep waiting, I will.

One day I’ll ask love to make me aware
How you know that it’s here when you can’t see it there
How it can cut to the bone without piercing your skin
I’ll ask if it comes back again
Oh, love won’t you come back again?
Track Name: Mama's Words
Someday you're gonna be somebody else's baby.
Someone else will hear you cry.
They'll want to dress you up in lots of frills and lace.
And tell you that you've got a pretty baby face.

But baby, Momma's tellin' you to be aware.
Cause men you meet won't treat you with you with your mama’s care
So don't just settle for some jokers words or kissing.
Or love may just be something that you end up missing.

Baby, Momma knows of what she speaks.
Love's like milk you gotta use it, it won't keep.
So sleep now, knowing all is well.
Cause Darlin', soon you'll wake up to love's bell.
And you should answer when it's at your door.
Cause Sugar, there's no promise of some more.
Track Name: The Buzzard Was Their Friend
A black-headed buzzard led the others on
he knew he couldn't get nothin' by stayin on
black headed and looking slick flying right along

and where did he take them? the buzzard was their friend
he took 'em all down and bought 'em a bowl of whats-is-name
they were gettin' fat just a goin' about on the bowls of it

he blew a whistle, blew it just once
and they were in the air and looking 'round
the wind was gustin' thirty
they were gettin awful dirty but they didn't mind

when that bacon fries I want you gone
a little bit a travlin' never done no wrong whoa-oh
look in the sky see those buzzards how they fly
black headed and looking slick flying right along

the bacon grease don't matter none let it slip and slide and run
it ain't no lie, look in the sky see how they fly
black headed and looking slick flying right along

and when it fry, fry a lot you mize well cook up all you got
hey hey put it your day see those buzzards on their way
black headed and looking slick flying right along
black headed and looking slick flying right along

and where did he take them? the buzzard was their friend
he took 'em all down and bought 'em a bowl of whats-is-name
they were gettin' fat jus' goin' to bat on the bowls of it

and when it fry, fry a lot you might as well cook up all you got
hey hey put it your day see those buzzards on their way
black headed and looking slick flying right along
black headed and looking slick flying right along
Track Name: Born With A Broken Heart
I was born a broken-hearted girl
Give or take an ounce
And the world wouldn't give me a break
Waiting, ready to pounce

I was born with a broken heart
with a broken heart, sure was broken in two

If you're out wandering the streets
Knock on my window it'll open
My bed is small, but so are we
Let love lay us low -- here's to hoping

You were born with a broken heart,
with a broken heart, sure was broken in two

Sometimes we get so confused
We get taken for a ride
We get worked over
Some of us come with new hearts
Most of us come with used hearts
Baby, why do you look so sad?

There are men who will stand accused
But they won't be told the why
They were strong so were beaten down
But the stars look gold through blackened eyes

They were born with a broken heart
with a broken heart, sure was broken in two

Were you born with a broken heart
with a broken heart, sure was broken in two
Track Name: Paradise
When I was a child my family would travel
Down to Western Kentucky where my parents were born
And there's a backwards old town that's often remembered
So many times that my memories are worn

"And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the green river where paradise lay?"
"Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away"

Well, sometimes we'd travel right down the Green River
To the abandoned old prison down by Adrie Hill
Where the air smelled like snakes and we'd shoot with our pistols
But empty pop bottles was all we would kill

"And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the green river where paradise lay?"
"Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away"

Then the coal company came with the world's largest shovel
And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man

"And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the green river where paradise lay?"
"Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away"

When I die let my ashes float down the Green River
Let my soul roll on up to the Rochester dam
I'll be halfway to Heaven with paradise waitin'
Just five miles away from wherever I am

"And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the green river where paradise lay?"
"Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away"
Track Name: Home
"Rolling down the road, going nowhere,
Guitar packed in a trunk
Somewhere around mile marker 1-12,
Papa started hummin' the funk
I gotta jones in my bones before they know,
We were singing this melody
Stop the car pulled out the guitar,
Halfway to New Orleans

Said take me home
Take me home

Could feel the sun about to rise,
When I realized we had nothing to fear
It's just me and my daddy and a kid named Cope,
Making music that nobody would hear
And then the sun let up and it split the night,
Spillin' over our jubilee
Ten thousand cars by the side of the road,
Groovin' far as the eye can see

Said take me home
Take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home

This Greyhound is delta bound mama,
Baby boy finally found,
Said this Greyhound is delta bound mama,
Baby boy done finally found his way home
Said take me home

Here we go,
Hot damn you should have felt the groove,
Like I was swimming in a sea of soul
The sun was rising and the day was hot,
And we was all about to lose control
My daddy turned his face up towards the sky,
And I knew that there was nothing to lose
I felt the crowd breathe in and I closed my eyes,
And we disappeared into the groove

Said take me home
Said take me home
Take me home
Said take me home

Straight from the water
Straight from the water, children
Straight from the water
Straight from the water, children
Straight from the water
Straight from the water, children
Straight from the water
You don't know nothin' about this

Take me home
Said take me home

Said take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home
take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home
Track Name: Nowhere With You
Hey good looking, why the frown?
You always look better when it's upside down
You say you got nowhere that you're going to
Can I go nowhere with you?

I took the Dartmouth Ferry into the town,
Spent my pennies bumming around,
Tryin' to find a way to tear a strip off these blues,
Can I go nowhere with you?

Paid the cover, saw the show,
Sat at the bar where the drinks did flow.
Didn't see a single face that I knew,
'Till I went nowhere with you.

Can I tag along tonight?
We'll kill some time, it looks like you might
need a little company,
I'm so cheap I might as well be free.

Hey good looking, why the frown?
You always look better when it's upside down
You say you got nowhere that you're going to
Can I go nowhere with you?

nananana...
Can I go nowhere with you?
nananana...
Can I go nowhere with you?

Can I tag along tonight?
We'll kill some time, it looks like you might
need a little company,
I'm so cheap I may as well be free.

whoa whoa whoa whoa!

If you get tired and want to go home,
I'm still wired, I can go it alone,
Same time next week at a quarter past ten?
And we can go nowhere again.
If you show up then, you know I will too,
Can I go nowhere with you?

Hey good looking, why the frown?
You always look better when it's upside down
You say you got nowhere that you're going to
Can I go nowhere with you?

naananana...(good looking)
Can I go nowhere with you?
Track Name: Dirty Dishin'
There's lots of folks who just don't know their way around the kitchen
Seems as though they just can't stand the heat
But we don't mind the work, in fact sometimes we find we're wishin'
We could get together make a mess and do some Dirty Dishin'
Get together make a mess and do some Dirty Dishin'
