Peaches and Honey

I've been chasing this world
Not knowing
Where the sunshine is going
When it's going down
I've been chasing these dreams
Not knowing 
Always going around

A cinnamon smile 
On a rainbow 
near a dry western road
A peach tree near the garden of fables
A honey stained kiss
And a dream laid away and stowed

And the cloud sings a song
For the Angel wings she tries on
She flies on

When the picture is flawed to perfection
And no more saints to air moral objections
And his soul grows unfazed in the face of rejection 
And the rising and setting sun find connection

We will know
The cinnamon kiss
That we missed 
Peaches and honey smiles
At the end of a rainbow

And the clouds sing a song
For the wings she tries on
She flies on...

One More

There is a piece of me
That burns inside
A different face
I'd like to hide
I know can't
Because I've tried
So come along
Enjoy the ride

Gather around
Watch the show
I will explain
But you won't know
Still the same
About to blow
Mourn the flame
Where the ashes go
I will explain
You still won't know

Sidewalk narcotics
And a liquor store
You know it seems 
I've wrote this song before
For one more smile
That's still adored
A shooting smile doesn't mean
It don't hurt no more

There's a piece of me
That burns inside
A different face
I'd like to hide
I know I can't 
Because I've tried
So come along
And enjoy the ride

Me And Waylon

Flying down a highway
It's just me and Waylon
Hanging on every line
Every rhyme has me swaying
I know he's a long time gone
But I still believe every word he's saying
Riding down a highway
Just me and ol' Waylon 

Every now and then my mind slips away
Looking back to remember
My favorite two bit whore
I can't believe I ever loved her
Guess, because I don't anymore
That old lines getting longer
My bedroom's a revolving door
Still every now and then I remember
My favorite two bit whore

Big Bertha back in Beaumont
She still turns me on
Like a shotgun whiskey chaser
And a Billy Joe Shaver song
Freight trains and cocaine
And blue eyes crying in the rain
Aching with a freedom
That borders on insane
But nothing does a damn thing for me
Like Kris Kristofferson

That old phones a ringing
Everybody wants to play
I don't mind'em coming 
But everybody wanna stay
If you ain't got no cash
Then you can't afford to pay
Still I don't mind you coming
But you can't afford to stay

Flying down a highway
It's just me and Waylon
Hanging on every line
Every rhyme has me swaying
I know he's a long time gone
But I still believe every word he's saying
Riding down a highway
Just me and ol' Waylon

Hey Sadie

Sadie Baby
Sadie baby
Sadie, babe you've been gone too long
Hey Sadie,
Hey baby,
Please come back home

She said"
In all your natural life
You wanted me for your wife
When you got what you wanted
You went and messed around"
I said "Sadie baby,Sadie baby
Sadie, babe, I didn't mean to let you down. 
I can't help it I've got the soul of a clown

She said
"In all your born days
You couldn't get out of your way
Now just stay out of mine
You'll sit on your front porch
Together with a bottle all alone
You'll beg and you'll cry
You'll try and you'll try
It's just a waste of time
Because Sadie baby is gone"

I cried and I cried
Said "give me one chance
I'll keep you satisfied"
She said "if you was an honest man
You wouldn't have to apologize for the times you lied
You can't right
Because you prefer to do wrong
Do wrong all alone 
Because Sadie baby is gone"

And I cried:
Sadie Baby
Sadie baby
Sadie, babe you've been gone too long
Hey Sadie,
Hey baby,
Please come back home

Teardrops In The Rain

Lately my life
Is fast cars motorcycles 
And Jim beam whiskey
And another young girl 
Only learning to play the game
Tomorrow she better learn fast
How to miss me
Because I'll be gone
Like Teardrops in the rain

A long time ago
Maybe there was one who could've held me
But she is gone
I guess it's for the best
She found something to replace me
And I found that freedom
Means more than a word in a song

Since then I've taken
Everything I took
Living hard running out the show
You can't see, so you can't know
It's all smoke and mirrors
Just a carnival game
I will show you but you can't look
Because I'll be gone
Like Teardrops in the rain

I'll shoot you straight
And you'll find surprise
Take my truth
And turn bourbon into lies
Another driven snowflake
Fallen with a Scarlett stain
I will show you but you can't look
And I'll be gone
Like teardrops in the rain
