2. Good Luck

Are you gonna go
Or stand in the doorway all night?
If you’re so unhappy, baby
I’m sorry I wasted your time

But you didn’t know that
I’d let you go without a fight
Well, it’s gonna hurt right now
But later you wont even cross my mind

Oh it’s so hard
All I got to say is…

Good luck, good luck baby, getting on without me
Good luck, good luck baby, but you’re gonna be sorry

What can I say
You got one foot out the door
If you’re so unhappy baby, I’m sorry my kisses got old
Day after day there’s something that I can’t ignore
Night after night I offer my body and you leave me cold

Oh it’s so hard
All I got to say is…

Good luck, good luck baby, getting on without me
Good luck, good luck baby, but you’re gonna be sorry

Good luck, good luck baby, getting on without me
Good luck, good luck baby, but you’re gonna be sorry

Oh it’s so hard
All I got to say is…

Good luck, good luck baby, getting on without me
Good luck, good luck baby, but you’re gonna be sorry

Good luck, good luck baby, getting on without me
Good luck, good luck baby, but you’re gonna be sorry

Oh its so hard…

3. Secret

Wait for the cold, long night
Go out where nobody else can see
And if you still wanna go
Go out there by yourself
Wait in the bushes for me

I’m gonna tell you a secret
I’m gonna tell you a secret
And I know you’re gonna keep it

Go past the tulips and the stones
Out where the water is dark and deep
And don’t get too cold
And if you think that you’ll see this through
Wade in that deep water for me

I’m gonna tell you a secret
I’m gonna tell you a secret
Let me tell you a secret
And I know you’re gonna keep it
Let me tell you a secret
And I know

Go past the graveyard
All on your own
And if you bring your sister, that’s fine
Bring me a jar full of shine
Wait in the bushes for me

I’m gonna tell you a secret
And I know you’re gonna keep it
I’m gonna tell you a secret
And I know you’re gonna keep it
Let me tell you a secret
And I know you’re gonna keep it
I’m gonna tell you a secret

4. Play The Fool

It took a while before I figured it out
The way the girls talk, it’s all over school
I stuck around through all of my doubt
But then you went and you broke the golden rule

Ooh, you know I play the fool
Ooh, you know I play the fool

Well I’m a man and a man’s got his pride
The way the boys talk, it’s all over school
I got inside you when you took me for a ride
You were the machine and I was the tool

Ooh, you know I play the fool
Ooh, you know I play the fool
Ooh, you know I play the fool

Yeah, play the fool

Ooh, you know I play the fool
Ooh, you know I play the fool
Ooh, you know I play the fool
I play the fool, I play the fool, play the fool

5. Good Things

Good things will happen
Bad things will happen, too
Sometimes it’s someone down the road
Sometimes it’s somebody next to you

Enjoy it right now
Because you never know when it’s gonna end
Enjoy it right now
Because you never know when it’s gonna end

37 people on the train south from Tupelo
Supposed to get to Greenville right about 5:45
There’s a boy with a bomb in his jacket that didn’t explode
So everybody made it home and went to bed that night

Good things will happen
Bad things will happen, too
Sometimes it’s someone down the road
Sometimes it’s somebody next to you

Enjoy it right now
Because you never know when it’s gonna end
Enjoy it right now
Because you never know when it’s gonna end

My papa got a job at the mill when he was just 19
He had my mama and my sister and he knew he had to make us a home
And after 43 years, retirement was more than just a dream
They let him off last week and told him he was on his own

Good things will happen
Bad things will happen, too
Sometimes it’s someone down the road
Sometimes it’s somebody next to you

Enjoy it right now
Because you never know when it’s gonna end
Enjoy it right now
Because you never know when it’s gonna end

Nobody knows for sure what happened that day
You went off into the woods and said you had to be alone
When you came home that night, you know you had nothing to say
And there were cuts on your body and your eyes looked just like stone

Good things will happen
Bad things will happen, too
Sometimes it’s someone down the road
Sometimes it’s somebody next to you

Enjoy it right now
Because you never know when it’s gonna end
Enjoy it right now
Because you never know when it’s gonna end

6. Open My Eyes

Too many people
Coming and a-going
In and out of my life
In the night, in the day
I’ve got to make it on my own

Somebody asked me
How do you do it
Tell them that I’m justified
Of the truth to myself
You know I feel so alone

Somebody, somebody, somebody come and open my eyes
Somebody, somebody, somebody come and open my eyes

Complicate the matter
Playing on the weakness
Taking all of my time
I’ll go down, with the ship
To the bottom like a stone

Falling off the ladder
Holy water, hell hound
Folding like a jack knife
But the truth to myself
You know it cuts through the bone

Somebody, somebody, somebody come and open my eyes
Somebody, somebody, somebody come and open my eyes

Somebody, somebody, somebody come and open my eyes
Somebody, somebody, somebody come and open my eyes

Yeah
(Somebody, somebody, somebody open my eyes
Somebody, somebody, somebody open my eyes)

Somebody, somebody, somebody come and open my eyes
Somebody, somebody, somebody come and open my eyes

Somebody, somebody, somebody come and open my eyes
Somebody, somebody, somebody come and open my eyes

7. Rich And The Poor

They walked hand in hand to a future unknown
He carried the water in blankets he brought
So far past the curfew and they were alone
Her teeth bound by braces, and his teeth were not

Rich and the poor, that’s how people get pain
She said I’m gonna show you how babies are made
Oh oooooooooh
Oh oooooooooh
Oh oh oh oh oh

So into the darkness, the rushes & leaves
They walked to the lake side, the moon hanging high
She showed him such sweet things, he could not believe
He would not forget for the rest of his life

Rich and the poor, that’s how people get pain
She said I’m gonna show you how babies are made
Rich and the poor, that’s how people get pain
She said I’m gonna show you how babies are made
Oh oooooooooh
Oh oooooooooh
Oh oh oh oh oh

What’s a boy to do when he wants what he can’t understand
And she’s a big girl and he knows he’s in capable hands
And she took his hand and showed him what people ignore
She took his hand and showed him what bodies are for

Rich and the poor, that’s how people get pain
She said I’m gonna show you how babies are made
Rich and the poor, the people get pain
Said I’m gonna show you how babies are made
Oh oooooooooh
Oh oooooooooh
Oh oh oh oh oh

8. Belle Starr

Side saddle, black velvet
Every young cowboy’s dream
A pistol for each hand
Remember the outlaw queen

Belle Starr, cut down so viciously
Saviour, home for the man on the run
Woman, the Great Western Valkyrie
Belle Starr, shot in the back with her own gun

Shed not for her bitter tears
Nor give the heart vain regret
The casket that lies here
The gem inside sparkles yet

Belle Starr, cut down so viciously
Saviour, home for the man on the run
Woman, the Great Western Valkyrie
Belle Starr

Belle Starr, shot in the back with her own gun
Take down so viciously
Shot in the back with her own gun
Take down so viciously
Belle Starr

9. Where I've Been

She said since we’ve been together
I tried not to keep secrets
I was so lost then
I don’t like to talk about it

Said I needed money
‘Cause the habit wasn’t cheap
I gave them my body
Now my memory won’t let me sleep

Now I lay beside you
And when you touch me
I feel like I don’t deserve you
That’s when you remind me

She says how could you love me
When you know where I’ve been?

How could you love me
When you know where I’ve been?

How could you love me
When you know where I’ve been?

You said when I came home
I tried to put myself back together
The war is still going on
And all my brothers are still in danger
I am a soldier
And the tradition runs deep

I gave them my body
Now my memory won’t let me sleep
Now I lay beside you
And when you touch me
I feel like I don’t deserve you
That’s when you remind me

I say how could you love me
When you know where I’ve been?

How could you love me
When you know where I’ve been?

How could you love me
When you know where I’ve been?

How could you love me
When you know where I’ve been?

How could you love me
When you know where I’ve been?

How could you love me
When you know where I’ve been?

How could you love me
When you know where I’ve been?

10. Destination On Course

Sail your ships for openings
Ride the waves that cover me
Moving through uncharted space
Slow exist, state of grace
Far away from home
Return before too long

Leave your troubles at the door
You haven’t lost what you’re looking for
Eyes that move across the sky
The signal fades
There’s no reply

Suddenly refine
You turn the hands of time
Only to unveil
Your hands have slipped from the rail

Slide through the night
Suffer through the rain
Destination on…
Destination on course
