  1. Mary Anna

    of the two of us i know i've been the fool right from the start
    every other day i fumble for the light switch to your heart
    but lately i been thinkin
    you're gettin mighty cold
    and if it ain't the switch honey
    well it just might be the bulb

    oh won't you cut on the lights Mary Anna
    won't you cut on that midnight sun
    won't you cut on the lights Mary Anna
    i can't wait for the mornin
    the mornin to come

    of the two of us i know you've got the looks and all the charm
    every other day i'm humbled just to hold you in my arms
    but lately i been thinkin
    you might not give a damn
    and i don't want to be somebody's every other day man

    CHORUS

    you been puttin me on like your makeup
    this love in the dark well it's wrong
    honey i'm fixin to wake up
    'cause i like my lovin with the light on

    CHORUS

  2. I Got Loaded
  3. Tried And Tempted

    I been thinkin’ ‘bout dropping out
    and lettin’ this old river
    spit me into the sea.
    do you remember when I sold you my soul
    now that it’s getting kinda old
    won’t you sell it back to me

    CHORUS:
    I’ve been tried and tempted
    tried and tempted
    tried and tempted
    tried and tempted

    well I been thinkin’ ‘bout turnin’ ‘round
    and headin’ up the stream
    to climb a mountain of youth
    do you remember when I opened up your box
    and let the demons out
    they fight me nail and tooth

    CHORUS:
    I’ve been tried and tempted
    tried and tempted
    tried and tempted and it’s hard to be strong
    when you’re tried and tempted too long

    I’d like to be the wind
    don’t wanna be the sail
    I’d like to be the train
    not the rail
    I’d like to be the train
    not the rail

    CHORUS

  4. Trouble In Mind
  5. Who The Devil

    It’s hard to be fair when you're fightin'
    It’s hard to be nice when you lose
    You wish you were thunder and lightnin'
    And all you are
    Is stuck with the blues

    Do you gotta be lost to be found
    Who the devil spins the world around
    Before you know the sun's up it goes down
    Do you gotta be lost to be found
    Who the devil spins the world around
    Well it is what it is and it isn't what it ain't
    Doesn’t matter what it was cause you know it's gonna keep on

    You can't keep me from laughin'
    And I can't keep you from cryin'
    It’s hard to say just what's happenin'
    We could be crashin'
    Or we could be flyin'

    Do you gotta be lost to be found
    Who the devil spins the world around
    Before you know the sun's up it goes down
    Do you gotta be lost to be found
    Who the devil spins the world around
    Well it is what it is and it isn't what it ain't
    Doesn’t matter what it was cause you know it's gonna keep on
    Keep on changin'

  6. Wastin' My Mind

    Wastin’ my mind on you
    Wastin’ my mind on you

    Makes my head spin
    Where does your love begin and end
    There’s no answer
    To the questions I keep asking you
    You look at me like I’m a fool

    Wastin' my mind on you
    Wastin’ my mind on you
    Wishin’ my heart would'a thought things through
    Wastin’ my mind on you

    Sweet confusion
    Always changin' the point of view
    A fine illusion
    Keeps me hanging on to find the truth
    Look at me I’m such a fool

    Look at the fool
    Look for the truth

    Wastin' my mind on you
    Wastin’ my mind on you
    Wishin’ my heart would'a thought things through
    Wastin’ my mind on you

  7. Postcards From Hell

    i know a man who sings the blues
    yeah he plays just what he feels
    keeps a letter in the pocket of his coat
    but he never breaks the seal

    set up in a bar room corner
    playin' for tips and beer
    people carryin' on and drinkin'
    you gotta strain to hear

    i've seen him playin' some old cheap guitar
    but he could play on pots and pans
    you never heard a soul so pure and true
    it's flowing' right out of his hands
    he can sing sweet as a choir girl
    or he can sing a house on fire
    i've seen him callin' up the angels
    and use a breeze for a telephone wire

    and if you ask him
    how he sings his blues so well
    he says
    i got a soul that i won't sell
    i got a soul that i won't sell
    i got a soul that i won't sell
    and i dont read postcards from hell

    says he came from down in texas
    playin' out since he's fifteen
    you can hear a little chicago
    and a lot of new orleans
    he can take you on a freight train
    he can take you down the alley
    he can take you to the church
    he can walk you through the valley

    chorus

    i've seen him sleepin' in a doorway
    maybe livin' outside
    on his back just like a cockroach
    but he ain't waitin' to die

    chorus

  8. Honey Jar

    Standin’ on the back of that train with your open arms
    Lookin’ at the big sky listenin' to the smoke alarm
    You wonder what happened guess your heart must'a jumped the track
    Put your lips out in the wind and you hope you get some kissin' back

    Every night you get the same old dream
    There’s a spoon full of honey where your heart should be
    And there's
    Honey drippin' off your spoon
    Honey drippin' off your spoon

    White skin freckles big hard candy green eyes
    Bet you wish you had your red headed woman back sometimes
    The last thing you got was a left handed letter
    And you opened up the seal like you didn't even know better

    Every night you get the same old dream
    There’s a spoon full of honey where your heart should be
    And there's
    Honey drippin' off your spoon
    Honey drippin' off your spoon

    Don’t you know your spoon's gettin' low
    You worry and you wonder just where all the honey goes
    But if you hope it and you pray real hard
    If you will it you can wish it
    Heaven is a Honey Jar
