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 Anne McCue - APRA Brent Moyer Breny Tunes, SESAC Bob Saporiti Songhenge Songs, SESAC

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 John Hadley - Hadley Six Music BMI  admin.

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...

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!

Sugar you fine sugar you sweet Didn't take you long to sweep me off my feet, Slow down daddy Baby won't you take your time Tell me your long tall story And maybe I'll tell you mine Tell me your long tall story And baby I'll tell you mine Anne McCue - APRA Bob Saporiti - Songhenge Songs, SESAC

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!

Uncanny Moon 03:45
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

Save A Life 04:40
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

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

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 APRA

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
