Track Name: Toledo
I'm realizing, love, that
You and I have gone astray.
Baby, gone astray.
If we take too long,
We might end up the same old way.
Oh, the same old way.

Leaving me alone just
Ain't the best you coulda done.
Oh, you coulda done.
Now, I'm sitting home,
My heart is telling me to run.
"Oh, you better run."

Plenty of things I could pay for,
Plenty of words I could say,
Plenty of love I could pray for,
But Toledo ain't that holy anymore.

That Ohio ground that
Held me down in younger days,
Oh, younger days,
Same old dirty I'll use to
Find myself a better way.
Oh, a better way.

When you ain't around me,
There ain't much that keeps me sane.
Oh, that keeps me sane.
Whiskey bottles hound me,
Holding me above the pain.
Oh, above the pain.

Plenty of things I could pay for,
Plenty of words I could say,
Plenty of love I could pray for,
But Toledo ain't that holy anymore.
Track Name: Hot Denver #2
Hold on through the night,
Every day of my life.
In dreams, I'm just fine,
When it ain't on my mind.

For the longest time,
Women and Wine,
But now, I'm changin' my tune.
No more howl at the moon.

But now, I'm changin' my tune.
No more howl at the moon.
Track Name: Ballroom Slip-cut
Shine me up and rest your cup next to mine,
All the time.
I'll ask the waitress to take our picture and throw it up
In a frame.

Cos in some years we might remember the restaurant that we love.
Second guessin', midnight kissin',
It's all I wanna know.
It's all I wanna know.

And what a dancer, ain't she fancy,
When she's on the floor.
Keep your head up, Ballroom Slip-cut,
Follow that around.

Cos in some years we might remember the restaurant that we love.
Second guessin', midnight kissin',
It's all I wanna know.
It's all I wanna know.
Track Name: Dancin' With The Moon
Well, don't you tell me that you've got a lover,
And don't you tell me that you're alone.
Cos there's things about her that I don't need to know,
And darlin', I'm dancin' with the moon.

You can help me by telling me a story,
And you can help me by getting her off my mind.
Cos there's things about her that I don't need to know,
And darlin', I'm dancin' with the moon.

Someday, I may find another,
And someday, well, I'll be moving on.
Cos there's things about her that I don't need to know,
And darlin', I'm dancin' with the moon.

Cos there's things about her that I don't need to know,
And darlin', tonight I'll drink to you.
Track Name: Keep Your Eye Out
To that colonel on the street,
Remembering friends you'll never meet,
Ain't no cliff with no holes,
Even muddy water has gold.

So keep your eye out,
Before we're through.

To that worn out billionaire,
Counting nickels, losing hair,
Ain't no river all rapids,
Even the mountains have passes.

So keep your eye out,
Before we're through.

Might need some help,
You might need some help, too.

To that farmer whose crops don't grow,
Tried ever trick that you know,
Sometimes the world has it out for you,
Sometimes there's nothing to do.

Well, keep your eye out,
Before we're through.
Track Name: Reno
I left that town on a Sunday mornin',
I couldn't stand the look on her face.
I packed my suitcase and grabbed all I owned,
Said, "I oughta get outta this place."

It's endless highways with no streetlights,
I'm hitchin' rides from town to town.
I'm headin' through Reno,
I've got much farther to go,
But my boot heels are scrapin' the ground.

I remember the day that I met her,
It was just like an old love song.
It wasn't me to believe in love at first sight,
Til that day proved me wrong.

It's endless highways with no streetlights,
I'm hitchin' rides from town to town.
I'm headin' through Reno,
I've got much farther to go,
But my boot heels are scrapin' the ground.

It's walkin' alone that I wonder.
It's sittin' alone I cry.
It's walkin' along that old highway I love.
It's a long one, and I'm gonna die.

It's endless highways with no streetlights,
I'm hitchin' rides from town to town.
I'm headin' through Reno,
I've got much farther to go,
But my boot heels are scrapin' the ground.
Track Name: I'm Goin' Home
Well, I swore to the sea, I know,
That I'd make my mark upon the Earth.
But it's a song I sang so long ago,
That I cannot remember the words.

I'm goin' home,
Like I said I would.
Hours to go, time will tell.
I'm goin' home,
To the one I love,
If she'll let me walk through the door.

And the moon, she called me out that night,
For a laugh, and to see what she could see.
But I know that someone waits at home for me,
So I bid thee farewell and goodnight.

I'm goin' home,
Like I said I would.
Hours to go, time will tell.
I'm goin' home,
To the one I love,
If she'll let me walk through the door.
Track Name: The Way It Is
Is this the end of what was said?
This is the last stop, cos everybody's gettin' off.
But hey babe, I ain't gonna go your way,
Cos this just ain't like me.

There's things in the world that I know nothing about,
And that's just the way it is.

It's a meeting of friends, it don't matter when.
It's so good to see you, it's always good to see you.
But hey babe, I ain't gonna go your way,
Cos this just ain't like me.

There's things in the world that I know nothing about,
And that's just the way it is.

Stone grounds, Old house,
Red stars, Graveyards
But hey babe, I ain't gonna go your way,
Cos this just ain't like me.

There's things in the world that I know nothing about,
And that's just the way it is.
Track Name: Hot Denver #1
I've been standin' all alone, waitin' for a girl,
To take me by the hand and lead me to the floor.
Cos I don't wanna go home tonight.
No one to hold me tight.

All my friends are dancin',
While I'm leanin' on the wall.
And all those beautiful women,
They don't care for me at all.

I guess I'll find a bottle to help me kick the blues.
Someone I can lean on, someone I'll never lose.
Cos I don't wanna go home tonight.
No one to hold me tight.

All my friends are dancin',
While I'm sittin' at the bar.
And all those beautiful women,
They don't care for me at all.

As I'm headin' through the exit, rain is pouring down,
I heard somebody call me, Lord, I couldn't turn around.
Cos I don't wanna go home tonight.
No one to treat me right.

All my friends are dancin',
While I'm stumblin' out the door.
And all those beautiful women,
They don't care for me at all.
Track Name: Rabbit Dancin'
If you get tired of rabbit hunting,
One of these days,
If you get tired of rabbit hunting,
One of these days,
Go rabbit dancin', for a change.

If you get tired of waking up,
In a cold room,
If you get tired of waking up,
In a cold room,
Try waking up In the afternoon.

If you get tired of voting wisely,
For a bunch of fools,
If you get tired of voting wisely,
For a bunch of fools,
Try voting wisely from your own swimming pool.

If you get tired of spending money,
You don't have,
If you get tired of spending money,
You don't have,
Just do like I do, count the friends you have.

If you get tired of craving whiskey,
All the time,
If you get tired of craving whiskey,
All the time,
Drink more whiskey.

If you get tired of rabbit hunting,
One of these days,
If you get tired of rabbit hunting,
One of these days,
Go rabbit dancin', for a change.
Track Name: Ridin' Alone (San Antone)
Oh me oh my, I'm feeling so tired,
Aching hard, and a-rattlin' my bones.
Oh me oh my, out among the granite spires,
Can't do much but think about my home.

The way I'm ridin' alone,
In my mind's an old lovin' song.
The way I'm ridin' alone,
Darlin' sittin' back in San Antone.

Oh me oh my, the sun is looking fine,
Laying down beneath her bed of stone.
Oh me oh my, how she once would shine,
Lendin' me the path on which I roam.

The way I'm ridin' alone,
In my mind's an old lovin' song.
The way I'm ridin' alone,
Darlin' sittin' back in San Antone.
