Track Name: Drunk And Lost In Tennessee
Drunk and lost in Tennessee
Where else in the world would I be
That would leave me so/ Sad and low
But drunk and lost in Tennessee

Honey it was just a little fight
Wont you turn off that light
I’ll tell you more in the morning
This town should come with a warning
And while I’m glad that you’re with me
I don’t remember it clearly
But I know come sunrise….I’ll..still…be…

Drunk and lost in Tennessee
Where else in the world would I be
That would leave me so/ Sad and low
But drunk and lost in Tennessee

I know I started off fine
Just having a good time
What was it I was drinking
That got me this far from thinking
I can't say how I got here
But it probably wasn’t light beer
Now the trouble…that I’m in…is clear

Drunk and lost in Tennessee
Where else in the world would I be
That would leave me so/ Sad and low
But drunk and lost in Tennessee

It seems each time I'm in this town
I just can't put that bottle down
I keep on breaking your heart
These nights are tearing us apart
And it seems that you can’t see that this will be the end of me
Cause this aint the last time…that…I'll ..be

Drunk and lost in Tennessee
Where else in the world would I be
That would leave me so/ Sad and low
But drunk and lost in Tennessee

Yeah I’m drunk and lost in Tennessee
Where else in the world would I be
That would leave me so/ Sad and low
But drunk and lost in Tennessee
Track Name: Billings to Pueblo
He caught the greyhound in Spokane
Without anything much planned
Just a trip for the weekend
He never knew quite what happened

At a Montana bus stop
He saw her and his heart stopped
A half shirt, a dead tooth
There she stood by the ticket booth

Just the right type of trashy, Just the right type of classy
Who knew love could be found, On a southbound greyhound...

Their love was one for the ages
The kind they write on those romance book pages
Whatever way she goes That's the way he goes
As long as they both go From Billings to Pueblo

She caught him looking in Cheyenne
By Denver they were past holding hands
Making out in the backseat
Knowing they were finally complete

Time was short but love is fast
They knew it wasn't meant to last
His ride would end in Amarillo
She'd say goodbye to him in Pueblo

Just the right type of trashy, Just the right type of classy
Who knew love could be found, On a southbound greyhound...

Their love was one for the ages
The kind they write on those romance book pages
Whatever way she goes That's the way he goes
As long as they both go From Billings to Pueblo

And they'd never forget
And they'd never regret
That they both took a bet
On someone they just met

Just the right type of trashy, Just the right type of classy
Who knew love could be found, On a southbound greyhound...

(Oh yeah they'd sing) our love Is one for the ages
The kind that they write on those romance book pages
Whatever way you go, that's the way I go
As long as we both go from billings to pueblo
Whatever way you go, that's the way I go
As long as we both go from billings to pueblo
Track Name: Hotel With No Name
You've been on the road for weeks by now
No end to it in sight
The billboards start to catch your eye
Need to try to sleep tonight
the engine starts to whine and knock
You take it as a sign
Nowhere could be as bad
As what you've left behind

The mechanic seems resigned to life
He tells you the bad news
Parts you need are hard to find
You can stay long as you choose
There ain't nothing else for miles ahead
You've seen all there was behind
And although you start to feel unease
You'll probably be just fine

But the wind keeps blowing, like you've never
heard before
And something keeps on keeping you,
from moving out that door

It's like you've always been here
It's always been the same
You feel the slip of something cold
Inside your brain
You cry out to those lonely plains
But no one hears a thing
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name

The old brick buildings tell the tale
Of grander days they knew
It all looks lovely here at first
It's hard to tell what's true
Are you just here by accident
Luck of the draw they say
Or is there something that brought you here
And makes you need to stay

The bottles start to pile inside
Your lonely room for one
Been days since their service came
You're bout to come undone
You make a vow, it's time to change
It's time to leave this place
But when you look in the mirror
You're not sure you see your face


But the wind keeps blowing, like you've never
heard before
And something keeps on keeping you,
from moving out that door

It's like you've always been here
It's always been the same
You feel the slip of something cold
Inside your brain
You cry out to those lonely plains
But no one hears a thing
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name

But the wind keeps blowing, like you've never
heard before
And something keeps on keeping you,
from moving out that door

It's like you've always been here
It's always been the same
You feel the slip of something cold
Inside your brain
You cry out to those lonely plains
But no one hears a thing
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name
Track Name: All These Ways
When I first saw you on that barstool
I knew exactly what love means
Although at first i was so ladylike
I'm not exactly what I seem
So I took you home that evening
And I swore I’d make you mine
And what feels likes decades later
I’m still trying to find out why…….

(there’s) All these ways you make me crazy
All these ways you rile me up
All these ways you mean the world to me
And I never want to stop

Now we’ve made it through the easy times
Now we’re in the thick of things
Now we’re hanging on for dear life
And seeing what the future brings
Now we’re in this for the long haul
It’s what they call domestic bliss
And every now and then you prove to me
You know how to wash a dish

(there’s) All these ways you make me crazy
All these ways you rile me up
All these ways you mean the world to me
And I never want to stop

(there’s) All these ways you make me crazy
All these ways you rile me up
All these ways you mean the world to me
And I never want to stop
No I never want to stop
No I never want to…
Track Name: You Think I Care
Your words used to be the death of me
Now your hypocrisy is all I see
You'd claim I broke your little heart
Well it was broken from the start
But then I finally got wise
And now I've gone and said goodbye
Don't try to tell me what to do
Because I'm done wasting time on you

You think I care bout what you think
Bout what I wear or what I drink
Honey I just thought that I'd share
I think it's cute you think I care

You used to tell me what to do
How to dress, who to talk to
You used to tell me " youre all mine"
But now I'm gone and I'm just fine
You used to call me your baby
And that's exactly how you saw me
But now I'm done wasting my time
I'm long gone and it's a crime...that.

You think I care bout what you think
Bout what I wear or what I drink
Honey I just thought that I'd share
I think it's cute you think I care

I used to have to check with you
Bout almost anything I'd do
You'd have opinions that you'd share
Bout the way I'd wear my hair
And my clothes caused us such strife
Babe I ain't no sister wife
But now I've left and now I feel
I got the best end of this deal

You think I care bout what you think
Bout what I wear or what I drink
Honey I just thought that I'd share
I think it's cute you think I care

They say that love means you never say you're sorry, and it's true
Because I'm pretty damn sorry I wasted so much time on you

You think I care bout what you think
Bout what I wear or what I drink
Honey I just thought that I'd share
I think it's cute you think I care

You think I care bout what you think
Bout what I wear or what I drink
Honey I just thought that I'd share
I think it's cute you think I care
