Track Name: Dig Two Graves
Dig Two Graves
(B.Moyer-B.Saporiti-A.McCue) 

Please dig a grave for me mister
And one for my so-called friend
If your back should get sore and you can't dig no more
Feel free to jump right on in

"Cause we're all gonna go
But nobody knows
Exactly where or when
So dig two graves for me mister
I'm on the road to revenge

It was one cold night, San Francisco
He rolled in with the fog across the bay
What he done before he won't do no more
His heart felt the thrust of my blade

I know we've all seen the movie
We know how the story ends
So dig two graves for me mister
I'm on the road to revenge

Once you break ground the truth can be found
There's no way to pretend
Confucius say, only one way
Only one way it can end
So dig two graves for me mister
I'm on the road to revenge

Track Name: Things You Left Out In The Rain
Things You Left Out In The Rain
(D.Olney-A.McCue-J.Hadley)

Storm is moving in
There's teardrops in the wind
This weather could drive me insane
I'm just one of those things
Things you left out in the rain

Long forgotten dream
Doesn't matter now it seems
There's no need to explain
I'm just one of those things
Things you left out in the rain

There sits the old lawnmower
The ladder and the shovel too
The way it looks to me
You're lazy as can be
Or you don't care the way you used to do

It was such a hopeful start
But you were careless with my heart
No use to complain
I'm just one of those things
Things you left out in the rain

I remember when we got together
Love was shiny and new
Now you're so blasé
You've thrown our love away
And you don't care the way you used to do

I'm walking all alone
I guess I'm on my own
Tears on my face once again
I'm just one of those things
Things you left out
One of those things
Things you left out
One of those things
Things you left out in the rain

Track Name: Spring Cleaning In The Wintertime
Spring Cleaning In The Wintertime
(A.McCue)

Oh, oh, oh
I sang you in the morning
I sang you all night long
When you went away
Had to sing another song

You are fine
But I gotta put a lid on it
Yeah I gotta say goodbye to it
Wrap it up, throw it away
Gonna start a brand new day

Spring cleaning in the wintertime
Throw away the things you left behind
I'm on my way to Judgement Day
Spring cleaning in the wintertime

Oh, oh, oh
I'm sick of all the bad news
Gonna wash away these blues
Put 'em through the wringer
Hang 'em out to dry

You are gone
Gonna throw away my old dreams
Gonna drag 'em way outside
Leave 'em by the side of the road
Someone else can find

Spring cleaning in the wintertime
Throw away the things you left behind
I'm on my way to Judgement Day
Spring cleaning in the wintertime

Oh, oh, oh...

Track Name: Devil In The Middle
Devil In The Middle
(D.Olney-J.Hadley-A. McCue)

Did you ever break your back
Just to live out in a shack?
Hideehi

The wind is hot, the sun is cruel
You're the wagon and the mule
Hideehi, Hideehi

You're dead upon your feet
Gonna pass out from the heat
Hideehi, Hideehi

The boss is counting out his money
And he seems to think it's funny
Hideehi, Hideehi

Mama eats cake
Daddy eats crow
The Devil eats the taters
Till there ain't no more
Grab him by the horns
Pull him by the tail
Poke him in the eye
Just to hear him wail
Hideehi, Hideehi, Hideehi, Hideehi

The preacher's drunk on altar wine
Says he's waiting for a sign
Hideehi, Hideehi

The choir is out of tune
Hear them howlin' at the moon
Hideehi, Hideehi

There's a rumble and a roar
Someone's beatin' down the door
Hideehi, Hideehi

Better get yourself together
'Cause we're in for stormy weather
Hideehi, Hideehi

Mama don't rock
Daddy don't roll
The Devil's in the middle
And he wants your soul
Grab him by the horns
Pull him by the tail
Poke him in the eye
Just to hear him wail
Hideehi, Hideehi, Hideehi, Hideehi

Click clack clickety clack
Train's a comin' down the track, uh huh
Fi fi fo fum
Lookin' sharp, here he comes
Somebody strike up the band!

The judge is choking down his gin
And the jury's joining in
Hideehi, Hideehi
When the foreman starts to dance
You know you haven't got a chance
Hideehi, Hideehi

Mama don't fish
Daddy don't sew
The Devil don't pray
And the cotton don't grow
Grab him by the horns
Pull him by the tail
Poke him in the eye
Just to hear him wail
Hideehi, Hideehi, Hideehi, Hideehi!

Long Tall Story
(A.McCue-B.Saporiti)

Sugar you sweet, sugar you fine
The kind of lover that could change my mind

Track Name: It Wasn't Even Fun While It Lasted
It Wasn't Even Fun While It Lasted
(A.McCue-B.Saporiti)

I was taken by surprise when you came into view
I had never seen a view as lovely as you
I guess there are some things that are too good to be true
Coz it wasn't even fun while it lasted

You waltzed me down the boulevards of gay Paris
You whispered softly in my ear je t'aime cherie
And even though the stars that night were shining for me
It wasn't even fun while it lasted

Jean Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir
Josephine and Bonaparte
Gertrude Stein and Alice B.
It really didn't matter to me

Dinner at Maxim's
We had a table for two
A fricasee, a diamond ring, a croquembouche
Then ooh la la la voulez vous
Coucher avec moi?
But it wasn't even fun while it lasted

City of romance
City of dreams
I saw the lights on the Champs Elysee
But all I felt was a vague ennui
It really didn't matter to me

There's nothing wrong with love as far as I can see
But all the money in the world
Can't buy it for me
I'd rather read a book or maybe climb up a tree
'Cause it wasn't even fun while it lasted
Au Revoir, Bonne Nuit, Salut
Adieu, C'est la Vie
It wasn't even fun while it lasted!
Track Name: Uncanny Moon
Uncanny Moon
(A.McCue-C.Byron)

Strange dream
You haunt me like a ghost tonight
Blue fire burning through my mind
Uncanny moon
Curses me with it's evil eye
You draw me in like a satellite

Come to me in the dark
Dancing with a broken heart
You're smile tore my world apart

Strange sigh
As I walked past your window last night
Flickering light
When I looked in your eyes
Uncanny moon
Molinetes
In the stormy clouds
Hand-in-hand
Lost in the crowd

Come to me in the dark
Dancing with a broken heart
You're smile tore my world apart

Now the night will never be the same
Every shadow whispers your name
Track Name: Save A Life
Save A Life
(A.McCue-D.Wakeman)

The pedal steel has been drinking
A man sinks in his chair
Like someone from the north
Been too long in the south
Banjos fill him with despair

You take a sip of emptiness
From a beer so light it floats
There's an echo through The Station Inn
Of olden days, of bliss and sin
It sends you to the bridge

Oooh, looking for a reason to save a life

A mosquito wants to drain you
One tiny drop at a time
Feel the sweat drip down your neck
As you reach for the light
You've measured out your life
In verses and choruses
You've been called a liar
You've never been a thief
But now you're standing on the bridge

Oooh, looking for a reason to save a life

It's always daylight somewhere
The thought keeps you afloat
There's no going back
There's no place called home
You didn't start this to be famous
You need to be free
Alleluia Freedom
Let your bells ring down on me

Oooh, looking for a reason to save a life
Track Name: Knock On Wood
Knock On Wood
(R.McNicholas)

Well I never been eaten by a dinosaur
Knock on wood, I said knock on wood
And I never been run over by a steamroller
Knock on wood, I said knock on wood

Knock on wood, I said knock on wood
Baby's gonna be my death so please
If you see my baby by the liquor store
Knock on wood for me

I never got myself inside a hangman's noose
Knock on wood, I said knock on wood
And I ain't been turned to ashes by the Hand of God
Knock on wood, I said knock on wood

Knock on wood, I said knock on wood
Baby's gonna be my death so please
If you see my baby by the liquor store
Knock on wood for me

Well it's too late for you my love
The velvet glove is worn
All my dreams are tattered and torn
So don't forget to

Leave the key behind you as you close the door
Knock on wood, I said knock on wood
I ain't ever gonna see your pretty face no more
Knock on wood, I said knock on wood
Track Name: Cowgirl Blues
Cowgirl Blues
(A.McCue)

Ever since you called me honey
I'm buzzing like a bumble bee
Dreamin' 'bout your petals
Thinkin' 'bout your stem
I'll be flyin' back to you again
Sweet as a rose, pretty as they come
You got my poor heart beating like a drum
Ever since you called me honey
I'm buzzing like a bumble bee

The dogies in the field are sleeping
But I can't catch a single wink
Thinkin' 'bout the way you loved me
Your kiss was like a long cool drink
Bright lights, big city is calling me
I don't miss the stars when you're there to see
The dogies in the field are sleeping
But I can't catch a single wink

I used to love the country
But now I got them cowgirl blues
I wanna be roaming through the streets at midnight
Walking arm-in-arm with you
Guess I'll be hangin' up my hat
Kickin' off my boots
No more the lonesome cowgirl
Since I met you
I used to love the country
But now I got them cowgirl blues

Track Name: Blue Sky Thinkin'
Blue Sky Thinkin'
(A.McCue-B.Saporiti)

I'm blue sky thinkin'
All I feel is sunshine around me
Could be, maybe love's found me

I don't know why but that breeze in the sky
Keeps blowin' those storm clouds away
Since I met you, all of my blues have
Turned into a blue sky day

I'm blue sky hopin'
I'm not just dreamin'
Things are what they seem
And the way that I feel is really for real
It's not gonna fly away
This time I know you're not gonna go
These really are my blue sky days

Oh my, life was sad
All of my skies were grey
Now all I've got are
Blue sky thoughts
And they're here to stay

I'm blue sky thinkin'
All I feel is sunshine around me
Could be, maybe love's found me now
Maybe love's found me now
