Track Name: Still Drivin'
I'm still drivin' when's this break gunna come,
Back my picking with a big ole timpani drum

Stole shelter from the storm
Night my cousin's baby was born
Some say I'm a wild man
Drink too much nectar from the corn

I'm still drivin' when's this break gunna come,
Back my picking with a big ole timpani drum

Oh the school it wasn't for me
Earned my stripes a different way
Learned to sing harmony
And go play out on the stage

I'm still drivin' when's this break gunna come,
Back my picking with a big ole timpani drum

I'm still drivin', I'm still drivin',
I'm still drivin', I'm still drivin' yaaaaaa

I'm a still, I'm a still, I'm a still, I'm a still drivin',
Still, still, still, I'm a still driver
Still, I'm a still, I'm a still, I'm a still driver
Still, still, still, I'm a still driver
Track Name: I'll Be The One
Ain't just how you dance it's how you fall
Stood taller than the rest, held your alcohol
Watched you run the bar, win in pool
Stealing all those hearts and money, taking them to school

Wait for me darlin', luck is on my side
I wanna see you rise in the morning,
Lay you down tonight
If next time never comes,
I'll be the one, I'll be the one
When all is said and done,
I'll be the one, I'll be the one

Well it's not the night to watch you walk on by
Go home all alone without a try
Oh I can be your kind of guy
Whatever that is cold, sweet, shy

Wait for me darlin', luck is on my side
I wanna see you rise in the morning,
Lay you down tonight
If next time never comes,
I'll be the one, I'll be the one
When all is said and done,
I'll be the one, I'll be the one

Am I rolling the dice, making an easy bet?
Is it too good to be true?
No regrets just yet
Oh your elegance and grace
The odds are in your favor when you wear those heels and lace

Wait for me darlin', luck is on my side
I wanna see you rise in the morning,
Lay you down tonight
Wait for me darlin', luck is on my side
I wanna see you rise in the morning,
Lay you down tonight
If next time never comes,
I'll be the one, I'll be the one
When all is said and done,
I'll be the one, I'll be the one

I'll be the one
I'll be the one
I'll be the one
I'll be the one
Track Name: As Young As You'll Ever Be
Ain't the highest you'll ever climb
It's the farthest you'll ever see
You're as young as you'll ever be

Might be the ripest on the farm,
Might be the brightest bulb in the barn
Well there's more seed left to sow,
Such little time to call your own
Such little time

My old man, wild as me
Tried to teach me better 'round twenty-three
Where were you when I was sixteen and all alone?
You were high as you ever flown

Well you fight those demons 'til the end
They'll come screaming against the wind
You fight those demons 'til the end
They'll come screaming
Again and again,
Again and again

Ain't the highest you'll ever climb
It's the farthest you'll ever see

You're as young as you'll ever be
You're as young as you'll ever be
You're as young as you'll ever be
Track Name: Grand Central
If I get to heaven, better roll me some sevens,
Cause right now my ticket's punched for hell
You rage and fade, I miss too many Sundays
Lord if you hear me I could surely use some help

Cause I like to ride the lightning,
They ain't gunna hang me from a tree
Cause the things I've done ain't hurt no one
The only one that's hurting is me
The only one that's hurting is me

Grand Central Station sounded better than graduation
Packed my bags, so long I'm on a train
Headed to Atlanta, I might shoot down to Savannah
Whatever I choose to do I'll be free

I like to ride the lightning,
They ain't gunna hang me from a tree
Cause the things I've done ain't hurt no one
The only one that's hurting is me
The only one that's hurting is me

Oh the things I've done ain't hurt no one
Only one that's hurting is me
The only one that's hurting is me... Yeah!

I like to ride the lightning,
They ain't gunna hang me from a tree
Cause the things I've done ain't hurt no one
The only one that's hurting is me
The only one that's hurting is me

Oh the things I've done ain't hurt no one
Only one that's hurting is me
The only one that's hurting is me
Track Name: Saddle
Riding the trail alone it ain't my style,
Not even for a country mile

Ride, ride, on this saddle, my saddle
It's a beautiful night, the air is right,
On this saddle, my saddle

Saw you standing there,
Looking so lonely down by the cabin
Your long dark hair,
It drew me in like a fountain


Ride babe, let's ride, on this saddle, my saddle
It's a beautiful night babe, the air is right babe,
On this saddle, my saddle

Traveling together on this ole filly sharing the stars
Souls tied as one, ride any trail the night is ours

Ride, ride on this saddle, my saddle
It's a beautiful night babe, the air is right babe,
On this saddle, my saddle

Ride, ride on this saddle, my saddle
It's a beautiful night babe, the wind is right babe,
On this saddle, my saddle

Ride, ride on this saddle, my saddle
It's a beautiful night babe, the wind is right babe,
On this saddle, my saddle
Track Name: Once You're Gone
Said you make it better if you head out west,
Oh there's a life you've been counting on
Tell me now what's been holding you back?
Who the hell are you afraid of?

We can chase the setting sun,
Run the race 'til it's won but you can't turn back
Once you're gone
Once you're gone

The problem isn't where you are
California ain't that far
It's when you wanna go
Now we can dream our lives away, put it off until someday
We wake up tired and old

We can chase the setting sun,
Run the race 'til it's won but you can't turn back
Once you're gone
Once you're gone
Once you're gone
Once you're gone

If we never even try we'll be asking ourselves why
Our dreams never came along
Oh but you can't turn back once you're gone

Once you're gone, oh you're gone
Yeah once you're gone, yeah once you're gone
Once you're gone, you're gone, oh you're gone, you're gone,
You're gone, you're gone, you're gone
Track Name: Marfa Lights
The blue light it matched her dress
With her eyes she said hello
I was struck I must confess
I didn't know how far we'd go

Our love was running with the Marfa lights for miles, for miles yeah
Our love was running with the Marfa lights for miles, for miles

Those dark sunglasses hide the way you feel
You bite your tongue I speak my mind
In the dark like a midnight train
You're flying blind we were flying blind

Our love was running with the Marfa lights for miles, for miles yeah
Our love was running with the Marfa lights for miles, for miles

Split my heart gave half to her
Sold what's left to the road
I ripped my chest right in two
I tore my heart from my soul

Our love was running with the Marfa lights for miles, for miles yeah
Our love was running with the Marfa lights for miles, for miles yeah
Our love was running with the Marfa lights for miles, for miles yeah
Our love was running with the Marfa lights for miles, for miles

Our love was running with the Marfa lights for miles, for miles yeah
Our love was running with the Marfa lights for miles
Track Name: Be There Soon
If I were to walk down this road would I find you?
Waiting there for me to stop the noise and break on through
Oh I could always call but that ain't the same
I'll be there soon
I'll be there soon

Out here in the hills I can see the plains where you reside
Safe from all the thrills living like a saint with nothing to hide
Oh I could always run, oh I could always fly
I'll be there soon
I'll be there soon
Oh I'll be there soon
Be there soon

We'll tell all of your friends that you're running late
I'll be there soon
I'll be there soon
Yeah I'll be there soon
Be there soon

Be there soon
Be there soon
Be there soon
Be there soon
Track Name: Hanging Out On The Line
Well I'm falling off the tracks
Going places I never should be
Well I found my righteous path but out here it's me

Don't leave me hanging out on the line
Don't leave me hanging out on the line
I'm preparing to lose my mind while I'm trying to make you mine
Don't leave me hanging out on the line

We give it a break
Lose a little time
Let's see if our hearts take
Mine is yours and yours is mine

Don't leave me hanging out on the line
Don't leave me hanging out on the line
I'm preparing to lose my mind while I'm trying to make you mine
Don't leave me hanging out on the line

We trade our guilt for shame
Leave the past behind
Why don't you take my last name?
Be my spirit and my guide

Don't leave me hanging out on the line
Don't leave me hanging out on the line
I'm preparing to lose my mind while I'm trying to make you mine
Don't leave me hanging out on the line

Don't leave me hanging out on the line
Don't leave me hanging out on the line
I'm preparing to lose my mind while I'm trying to make you mine
Don't leave me hanging out on the line
Track Name: Let It Burn
In my mind I'll always see you
I'll always feel you standing there
With the same cotton dress you wore when I first met you
I recall the sunlight in your hair

Can a dream break your heart?
Can it tear your world apart?
Let the flame light the fire
Let it burn through wild desire
Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn

In my life I know I'll miss ya
All the times I should've kissed ya
Locked away in some old drawer
It takes time to mend a soul
And we've both been growing old
And you don't live here anymore

Can a dream break your heart?
Can it tear your world apart?
Let the flame light the fire
Let it burn through wild desire
Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn

Oooohhhhh

Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn

Go on it burn

Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn

Go on it burn

Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn

Ooooohhh
Track Name: My Gospel
Son are you weary with the troubles in life?
So you take your heartache with a glass of wine?
Are you haunted by the ghost you know?
Pay them off with kindness, the debt you owe

Father are you tired?
Full of despair?
Fish out of water, gasping for air?
At the mercy of your troubled soul?
Prop up a ladder, pay your toll

This is my gospel
This is my truth
Soul keeps wading in the fountain of youth
You should listen to the good news
This is my gospel
This is my truth

Wealth of the world has been compressed
With hard times for the rest
We're survivors of blood and lead
Ain't got no answer, ask Him instead

This is my gospel
This is my truth
Soul keeps wading in the fountain of youth
You should listen to the good news
This is my gospel
This is my truth

Mama come and join me in the tower
Where the king and queen hold the power
Break out the dresses, I'll wear a suit
Lord just tell me what I should do

This is my gospel
This is my truth
Soul keeps wading in the fountain of youth
You should listen to the good news
This is my gospel
This is my truth

Oh this is my gospel
And this is my truth
