The True Love Way

You sail your ship on the raging sea,
While I keep myself at bay
Oh, heart of mine, it’s summertime,
I’ll swim out and meet you, what a day

You were born on the seventeenth
Older, you don’t look a day
Oh, heart of mine, how could you be so blind,
To believe in the true love way

Things are as they should be right now
At least that’s what you say
Things are as they should be right now
I still believe in the true love way


The Answer, The Way, The Life

I was eighty-three, when it came to me
What this world was about
Until then, written in pen,
Had it all figured out

Took me long to realize, but in the end,
Trust yourself, and the hearts of your friends


I’ll Shoot You Down

Hey Big Jim, with your arms of steel
The blade that kills
And the hand that deals

I’ll shoot you down

Hey Black Bear
With your razor claws
Teeth like saws
And your sledgehammer paws

I’ll shoot you down

The proof’s in my pocket, if you want it


There’s No Time For Crying

There’s no time for crying
When I ain’t got long
There’s no time for crying
I’ll be dead and gone

There’s no time for crying
A shotgun and a shovel
Gonna shoot me up and make me die
Then bury all my trouble

And you’ll try
And you’ll cry
But you’ll never break this heart of mine

There’s no time for crying
Let’s drink this bottle of wine
There’s no time for crying
Soon we’ll feel fine

There’s no time for crying
A cake and a candle
Gonna load my breath and blow it out
Then eat all I can handle

And you’ll try
And you’ll cry
But you’ll never break this heart of mine


I’m Never Going To Settle Down

Rolled into town, about a quarter to two
Prettiest place, I’d ever been to
Gold-plated roads, rivers of wine
Angels were singing, “sun always shines”

But as broke as my back and as tired as my feet
There’s still so many places and people I gotta meet
So I’ll be gone in the morning, and out of this town
Cause I’m never gonna let myself settle down

Licking her lips, nodding my head
It wasn’t her words, but how they were said
“I’m the one woman, sent from above,
Destined to teach you, the meaning of love”

But as nice as a house and some kids may sound
And as sweet as you’d look in a white wedding gown
I’ll be gone in the morning, and out of this town
Cause I’m never gonna let myself settle down

Stare at the moon, I’ll follow the sun
When I get lonely, I’ll speak to the one
Guide me safely, with the wind at my feet
What a way to be…

But planting the seeds will lay down the roots
And there’s still so much dirt I gotta put on these boots
Season to season, town to town
Oh god, please explain this settling down
