    When I call you up, will you come runnin’?
    When my shades are down, will you let the sun in?
    When we go downtown, I wanna know 
    You won't be lookin’ ‘round, won’t be lookin’ ‘round
    I ain’t tryin’ to put you under my thumb, but more than love
    I want devotion
     
    Will you back me up when I’m in a showdown?
    Will you pick me up when I’m feelin’ low down?
    When the money’s gone cause we done spent it all
    I want to know baby, that you’ll keep on hangin’ on, 
    I ain’t tryin’ to put you under the gun, but more than love
    I want devotion
     
    You can shower me with money, tell me pretty lies
    Tell me that you've never seen such deep blue eyes
    Buy me roses, write me poetry and dress real nice
    You can tell me that you love me a million times 
     
    But if I hurt myself will you kiss and make it better?
    When I’m out of town, will you write me a love letter?
    When they lay me down and the angels come
    I've got to know baby,
    I was your number one
    I ain’t messin’ with close enough 'cause more than love
    I want devotion, a little bit of devotion,
    I want your devotion...

    Another night and I’m waitin' with the TV on, by the phone
    And I’m just about finished with this bottle of wine, killin’ time 
    I know I should know better
    I should be strong, I should just move on
    But this love just won’t let me go 
     
    Won’t let go, it’s got this hold
    Somehow that man got his hands wrapped around my soul
    Makes me high, makes me feel so low
    Don’t know why, but he’s got that pull
     
    I never thought that anyone could keep me on my knees, losin’ sleep
    I’ve always been the kind of girl to get by on my own, don’t need no one 
    My friends tell me they don’t understand, he’s just another man
    But this love just won’t let me go
     
    Won’t let go, it’s got this hold
    Somehow that man got his hands wrapped around my soul
    Makes me high, he makes me feel so low
    Don’t know why, but he’s got that pull
     
    I’ve always been the one to walk away
    Always had to have the last word to say
    Always savin’ face, savin’ face
     
    Just won't let me go
    Won’t let go, he’s got this hold
    That man somehow got his hands wrapped around my soul
    Makes me feel so high, he makes me feel so low
    Don’t know why, but he’s got that pull

    Windows down and westbound, no goodbyes
    The rearview city skyline has no emotion
    Hell, it ain’t even knowin’ if this girl
    Had ever come and gone
     
    And I’m feelin’ free
    I got my taillights to the east
    Like some long forgotten soldier, Arizona
    I’m comin’ home to you
     
    All the years I’ve been away
    Runnin’ for the ribbons in this human race
    But these days as I get older
    The “wins” ain’t worth the prize
    And it’s been too long since I felt like this tonight
                  
    I’m feelin’ free
    I got my tail lights to the east
    Like some long forgotten soldier, Arizona
    I’m comin’ home to you

    I’m singin’ out loud, real loud, and I’m comin’ home
     
    Yeah I’m feelin’ free
    I got my taillights to the east
    Like some long forgotten soldier, Arizona

    Before you go to your new love
    Before you walk out that door
    Better think twice, look me in the eye baby
    Tell me you don’t love me anymore
     
    You say she gives you that feelin’
    The one like we had long ago
    But even with the miles we put behind us baby
    It ain’t like there’s nowhere left to go
     
    As you’re leavin’ there’s one thing you should know
    And I won’t say this again
    Just as soon as you walk out that door
    There ain’t no comin’ back in
     
    Before you go to your new love
    And leave everything we stood for
    Just say goodbye, or give it one more try baby
    On my side of the door
    On my side of the door
    On my side, my side of the door

    I saw love on a movie screen
    Sounded good in the books I’d read
    Got me wonderin’ what all of the fuss is
    But now I know words don’t do justice
    Since my baby has come my way
    It’s almost more than I can take
     
    Makes me wanna burst
    With love and affection
    For the first time
    Love’s got my attention
    Wanna burst
    Makes me wanna burst
     
    Lookin’ for love you might as well be blind
    Harder you look the more it hides
    Don’t mean a thing no matter what you do
    You don’t find love 'til love finds you
    Can’t explain but all I know
    Baby’s got me on an overload
     
    Makes me wanna burst
    With love and affection
    For the first time
    Love’s got my attention
    Wanna burst
    Makes me wanna burst

    The feelin’ never goes...
    I still keep your picture right here by the phone
    So many miles and so much time
    I never stopped believin’ I’d get one more try...
    Cause there’s a part of you baby, that just kept hold
    If you were here right now, I’d never let you go, and I would be...
     
    I would be the one you run to
    I would be the one you come to when you fall
    I would be the one that you hold at night
    I would be the one this time
     
    I was so damn young,
    Hangin' out with boys and always on the run
    But now I spend my days
    Rehearsin’ words you’ll never hear me say
    ‘Cause there’s a part of me baby, still locked in time
    If I could go back now, I’d be with you tonight, and I would be...
     
    I would be the one you run to
    I would be the one you come to when you fall
    I would be the one that you hold at night
    I would be the one this time

    I’d do anything for one chance to love you right

    She's a wildflower, wild curly headed girl
    Loves skippin’ rocks, climbin’ trees
    She’d chase the boys and kick ‘em in the knees
    She loves butterflies, in careless beauty they would fly
    To the blue sky full of marshmallow clouds
     
    But childhood went so fast and it’s time to be a big girl now
    Her heart got thrown on the ground, kicked around
    Where has the little girl gone
    Innocence blown with the wind for the first time
    She feels completely alone
     
    All she needed to hear
    Is you are worthy, you are pure
    There is nothin’ you can do to lose this love
    Pick up the pieces and move on
    You’ll learn your value, you are strong
    And you never lost your innocence
     
    Sorrow overtaking hopelessness is always breaking
    Her soul feels empty, she can’t get up in the morning light
    Hurts her crying eyes
    She puts on some make up and does her best to play her part
    In a world of men and tend
    To her bleeding heart again
     
    'Cause childhood went so fast and it’s time be a big girl now
    Her heart’s been thrown on the ground, kicked around
    Where have the yesterdays gone?
    Innocence blown with the wind it’s not the first time
    She feels completely alone
     
    All she needed to hear
    Is you are worthy, you are pure
    There is nothin’ you can do to lose this love
    Pick up the pieces and move on
    You’ll learn your value, you are strong
    And you never lost your innocence
     
    You're alone, but you’re not broken
    You’re beautiful, you can fly
    If you just let go
     
    All she needed to hear
    Is you are worthy, you are pure
    There is nothin’ you can do to lose this love
    Pick up the pieces and move on
    You’ll learn your value, you are strong
    And you never lost your innocence
     
    She's a wildflower, wild curly headed girl
    Loves light of day and bein’ free free free

    Tonight, is gonna be good, everything just as it should be
    Long day, is now behind me, and I’m gonna have some fun tonight
    Sometimes it feels like the whole wide world, is tryin’ to steal your soul
    Gets you down so low and makes you feel,
    like you’re never gonna fill that hole
     
    But I’ve got me my own solution, handed down through my family
    Never fails to bring a happy conclusion to what’s ailin’ me
    Don’t have to worry about nothin’ no, put ‘em on and you just can’t lose
    They got a power, they’ve got distinction,
    They’re my lucky red, they’re my lucky red shoes
     
    I don’t know, what it is... but when I start to get that itch
    Back in the closet in a box they lie, a guarantee of a real good time
    Might be the way that they change my walk, change the way I sway
    They got the power to catch a young man’s eye,
    When I wanna, when I wanna play
     
    Yeah I’ve got me my own solution, handed down through my family
    They never fail to bring a happy conclusion to what’s ailin’ me
    Don’t have to worry about nothin’ no, put ‘em on and you just can’t lose
    They got a power, they’ve got distinction,
    They’re my lucky red, they’re my lucky red shoes
     
    And if I want to spend the whole night dancin’, the boys line up to ask
    And if I want a little love and romancin’, them boys don’t stand a chance,
     
    Yeah I’ve got me my own solution, handed down from my Mom to me
    They never fails to bring a happy conclusion to what’s ailin’ me
    Don’t have to worry about nothin’ no, put ‘em on and you just can’t lose

    It may have taken quite some time but I
    Found your love
    Love was always just a distant dream, I thought

    You held up my head
    Carried me through
    And I have found my home inside of you

    Uh oh here I go falling into someone again, again
    Last time I followed my heart it took me to the middle of a hurricane
    Took me years to clean up after that one
    And all the damage that was done, oh no
    But I know now it takes a hurricane sometimes
    to get us on the right road again
    I don’t wanna be led off this path,
    when it took me way too long to get this far
     
    But when you smile oh you got me so bad
    The feeling I get makes me wanna let go
    Is it right, is it okay, I don’t know
    But I’m so scared of losing control
     
    I keep catchin’ myself tryin’ to read between the lines
    But I won’t believe a fabrication of my heart this time
    'Cause I’ve been up and down and on the ground,
    Every side of the extreme
    And I feel like I’m landin’ on some middle ground, finally
    But the question is do I believe enough in me
    To handle this responsibly?
     
    But when you smile oh you’ve got me so bad
    The feeling I get makes me wanna let go
    Is it right, is it okay, I don’t know
    But I’m still scared of losing control
     
    God you told me you could use us in each other’s lives
    But I don’t know what that means here tonight
    So hear my whisper, hear my questioning
    'Cause I’m not gonna move till I hear you say to me
    Walk this way, I love you
    You are ready

    My heart is ragin’ with a fire
    How could you let me live a lie
    Anticipating love to fail
    You kept me close but far away
    A fine line between love and hate
    When it was only love I craved
     
    I did everything I know
    I took you deep inside my soul
    I bought every dream you sold me
    Believed every line you told me
     
    I never loved before
    With my heart wide open
    And it’s too late now
    To change the words you’ve spoken
    So you can take a bow
    The curtain’s closing
    And I’ll just walk away
     
    You know the love I gave was real
    But you were driven by your fear
    At least you got your conscience cleared
    And now you want me to forgive
    Give you back your happiness
    You want another chance
     
    But now I see the stage so clearly
    How every role you played deceived me
    I watched the glow fade into nothin’
    And all the rows turn cold and empty
     
    I never loved before
    With my heart wide open
    And it’s too late now
    To change the words you’ve spoken
    So you can take a bow
    The curtain’s closing
    And I’ll just walk away

    Tryin' to get me to talk about it no,
    I don't want to be amused
    Tonight I'll have the blues
     
    When the blues come knockin'
    Just let 'em in
    It's just your soul reckonin'
    Sometimes livin' just takes its toll
    The price of high you pay with low
     
    Close the curtains, turn down the lights
    A little rain on your soul's alright sometimes
    Tomorrow I will start anew
    But tonight I'll have the blues

    Whatever happened babe, to you and I

    Is somewhere down this road

    I know you told me, you tried

    But sometimes love grows cold  

                                                               

    And I'm feelin' like I'm broken down

    There ain't a soul around

    Fifty miles from the nearest town

    You got me stranded, feels like I'm broken down

                                             

    I don't blame you babe, for movin' on

    You know I wish you well

    It ain't on you I'm out here on my own

    Ain't no one right, you know there ain't no one wrong  

                               

    And I'm feelin' like I'm broken down

    There ain't a soul around

    Fifty miles from the nearest town

    You've got me stranded, feels like I'm broken down  

                                 

    Night's fallin' all around me I got nowhere to go

    No matter which way I turn this road won't take me home

    Guess I'll turn my back to the wind, start walkin', see where it goes

    Try and find a little shelter from the storm  

                                               

    And I'm feelin' like I'm broken down

    There ain't a soul around

    Fifty miles from the nearest town

    You've got me stranded, feels like I'm broken down...

    I went to the same place to buy our Christmas tree

    I tried to do everything like you used to do

    It lights up the the room

    But it's just not Christmas without you

                                                       

    Snowflakes were fallin' when I strung up the lights

    And bein' afraid of heights it was so hard to do

    They decorate the roof

    But it's just not Christmas without you

                                                      

    The shopping's done and the gifts are wrapped

    I signed your name on all the cards

    It's all been done but it won't feel right

    'Til you're home here in my arms    

                                                          

    I lit a fire, got it burnin' bright

    Poured a glass of wine, and I poured you one too

    Baby come home soon

    'Cause it's just not Christmas without you...

    Baby come home to me soon

    'Cause it's just not Christmas without you

    Been so long and time turned those promises into white lies

    Summer nights and dreams like stars across the sky

    And nothing else mattered.. nothing else  

                                            

    But you had to go away, and time slipped by without a trace

    Now I still lie awake and think about you every now and then

            

    Every now and then, when the world seems so cold

    You reach in baby

    Like a summer breeze through time,

    You warm my soul and sanctify

    And your eyes still shine like diamonds in the night

    And nothing else matters, nothing else

    Meltin' all those highway lines down 69

    I'm headed down to Dallas, what I'm lookin' to find

    Is everything I've heard about Texas on a Saturday night

    I've seen it in the movies, I've watched it on tv

    But I was raised just one way to believe

     

    Show me, you gotta show me

    A two-step, pickup truck, honky-tonk, Texas time

    Show me, rock and roll me

    'Cause tomorrow I go home to that Missouri line

     

    Ever since I remember, ever since I recall

    Everybody's talkin' how Texas has it all

    My momma's keepin' quiet and papa don't know I'm gone

    And I just got one night in this Texas town 

    It takes more than cowboys singin' on the radio

    Honey there's just one sure way to know

    Wonderin’ how the world got to be so broken

    And the cause babe, for comin’ all undone 

    We’ve got children shootin’ children

    Off to school now boy, don’t forget your gun

    Mama Mama won’t know, she’s out workin’

    'Cause Daddy’s gone and won’t be comin’ home

                                         

     Oh no, children what’s that sound

    Ashes ashes, we all fall down baby

    Take what you need, forget the rest

    Help us Johnny, come and help us pilgrims

    Find the distance between the right and the wrong

    We gave the justice, oh we gave it to the lawyers

    It paid for their Mercedes babe, they drove it in the ground

    Baby baby, better call your politician,

    Better let him know what’s been goin’ down,

    Aw but baby, you better call long distance

    'Cause he won’t hang in this part of town

                                               

    Oh no, children what’s that sound

    Ashes ashes, we all fall down baby

    Take what you need, you can leave the rest

    'Cause there ain’t no Code of the West      

                                            

    Baby it’s our home fire, that’s gonna burn us down

    Aw you better circle the wagons

    Cover your brother, better do it now

    Mid-summer I was seventeen, not much farm to save

    I heard my old man call with his one foot in the grave

    Six words and a .45 all's he left me when he died

    Little Queenie, he said, keep this boy alive  

                                         

    I practiced hard in the summer heat 'til my aim was fast and true

    Queenie had no fear of God and I had nothin' left to lose

    In a bank south of Aberdeen they tried to take me from behind

    Now they don't care if they take me dead or alive                                

    These times it just seems like more and more

    There ain't no turnin' to the way it was before

    'Til we make our final play    

                                                                  

    There's a man come from San Antone with a price upon my head

    There's a woman I might never see again

    I'll keep my camp in the canyon land I'll keep the skyline overhead

    Me and Queenie we stay better than the rest  

                                      

    But these times it just seems like more and more

    There ain't no turnin' to the way it was before

    Me and Queenie, that's the way it's gonna stay

    'Til we make that final play      

                                                              

    So let 'em come, let the whole damn bunch

    Try and take me away

    But prison or dyin', or that God damn farm

    It's all the same to me                                                                         

    Half a dozen men wait in the heat

    Between Mexico and me

    One way or another Queenie's gonna

    Set me free...

    Song For Pete - Desperado-ish

    SONG FOR PETE

    Well you never learned to take things in stride

    You lived your life with your fist against the sky

    Always reachin’ a little too far

    Always wishin’ on that same wrong star

    In the eye of the storm, never findin’ shelter

    You smoked and you drank, but nothin’ really helped

    Now the autumn’s comin’, your days are gettin’ shorter

    And your restless heart still gets so bored...

     

    You’re still glory bound

    And the world’s tried hard kickin’ you around

    Now there’s nothin’ but the fightin’ that makes you feel alive

    When the wind knocked your cradle down

    The bough broke hard and you hit the ground runnin’

    And these days you get so tired

    But they never could put out your fire

     

    She understands, she makes it better

    She heals your wounds the times that you let her

    But there’s one door you don’t let her in

    It’s where you keep that mustang, still unbroken

    Sometimes you wonder if you're just an old fool

    There’s always one thing, there’s always something left to prove

    Just out of reach, around the next bend

    But the fire still burns, and you’ll never surrender

     

    You’re still glory bound

    And the world’s tried hard kickin’ you around

    Now there’s nothin’ but the fightin’ that makes you feel alive

    When the wind knocked your cradle down

    The bough broke hard and you hit the ground runnin’

    And these days you get so tired

    But they never could put out your fire

     

    Still you keep on runnin’

    You keep on runnin’

    Tryin’ to gain enough speed to set you free

     

    You’re still glory bound

    And the world’s tried hard kickin’ you around

    Now there’s nothin’ but the fightin’ that makes you feel alive

    When the wind knocked your cradle down

    The bough broke hard and you hit the ground runnin’

    And these days you get so tired

    But you never could put out your fire…

    no you never could put out your fire

    Don’t you tell nobody else

    Don’t you tell nobody, we’re sneakin’ out when night starts fallin’

    Gonna meet in the damp woods when the moon is high

    We got some Boone’s Farm and cigarettes

    Anyone starts talkin’ we’re sure to get busted

      

    When the night reveals our breath

    We’re sneakin’ out of these backyard tents

    When the clouds dim the pale moonlight

    We’re sneakin’ out tonight

     

    Don’t you tell nobody at all

    Don’t you tell nobody, word gets out and there won’t be enough

    I heard from Heidi, Nancy’s gonna be there too

    She’s bringin’ her friend, Charlene

    You know what that means, if her reputation’s true

     

    When the night reveals our breath

    We’re sneakin’ out of these backyard tents

    When the clouds dim the pale moonlight

    We’re sneakin’ out tonight

     

    Don’t you tell nobody

    Don’t you tell nobody

    Don’t you tell nobody

    We’re sneakin’ out tonight

     

    When the night reveals our breath

    We’re sneakin’ out of these backyard tents

    When the clouds dim the pale moonlight

    We’re sneakin’ out

    We’re sneakin’ out

    We’re sneakin’ out tonight

    Gypsy Song - Acoustic Americana road song

    GYPSY SONG

    J. Norman - K. Peterson 

    Copyright Say When Music ASCAP

    Livin' on the open road ain't the life I chose

    I never meant to be out here in this life alone

    Movin' up and down this highway's

    The only life I've ever known

    Never havin' anywhere I can call my home

    I keep thinkin' to myself I was born

    In a Gypsy song

    "Cause something keeps me out here like a thief in the night

    Gypsy song, stuck in a Gypsy song

    I've been singin' it all my life

    I headed out of Wichita on the 60 East

    Woke to a morning son in a Smoky Mountain breeze

    Headed down to Florida for a winter month's retreat

    I'll never let no Northern Wind get the best of me

    Tonight She Lied - Father/daughter wedding song

    Tonight She Lied

    J. Norman

    Copyright Say When Music ASCAP

     

    Maybe not this night tonight underneath this summer sky

    Maybe not this place in time, but you knew that it was comin'

    Tonight she looks so right, she's not your little girl

    All the years that you watched her grow

    You've never seen her look like this before

    In this summer moon, tonight she lied

    She said that she'd be yours forever, til the end of time

    But tonight, he's gonna take her home, 'cause she's a bride

    Oh Daddy... tonight she lied

    Funny how the years they fly, but you never even noticed

    Minutes burn away the years til you find yourself

    Tryin' to slow it down

    You want to take a hold you want to go back somewhere in time

    Tuck her in, say "goodnight" and shelter her

    Shelter her tonight

    In this summer moon, tonight she lied

    She said that she'd be yours forever

    Cross her heart and hope to die

    But tonight she takes another hand, 'cause she's a bride

    Oh Daddy... tonight she lied

    But tonight, in this summer moon

    He takes her home

    Oh Daddy, tonight she's gone

    Drivin' through this mornin' rain, lookin' for some peace of mind

    I could've been home yesterday, I just needed a little more time

     

    She came on like a rolling thunder

    She came on like a woman in pain

    She came on like a ship going under

    And she left me like I never meant a thing

     

    Every time I think I know what lies in a woman's soul

    I wind up livin' with a ghost that won't ever let me go

     

    She came on like a rolling thunder

    She came on like a woman in pain

    She came on like a ship going under

    And she left me like I never meant a thing

     

    So I drive and I drive

    Thinkin' one more mile

    Is gonna be the one to tell me why

    You mend an angel's broken wings

    And she just flies away

     

    She came on like a rolling thunder

    She came on like a woman in pain

    She came on like a ship going under

    But she left me like I never meant a thing

    THE FIRE

    My love, I've been waiting for this moment so long

    To be loving you, touching you

    The waiting is through, as we slip into the fire

     

    Your heart is the only sound

    It's echoin' against my skin, surrendering baby

    To this fire tonight

     

    You're more magic baby, than this man ever fantasized

    It's like all the stars fell down from the sky, into your eyes

    And I'm gonna love you like a man that's been too long denied

    And I will hold you until the flames burn to embers

    I will hold you for all time

     

    The waiting is through baby

    Take me to the fire...

    Faith to Stall - Sparse, trying to find faith

    FAITH TO STALL

    J Norman

    Copyright Say When Music ASCAP

    Feels like rain’s about to fall

    Feels like trouble’s about to call

    Like there's something outside these walls

    That's just waiting for faith to stall, faith to stall

     

    I was never much for prayin’

    But I do believe it’s time

    To bow my head, close my eyes,

    And fold these hands of mine

     

    Feels like rain’s about to fall

    Feels like trouble’s about to call

    Like there's something outside these walls

    That’s just waitin’ for faith to stall, faith to stall

     

    I was raised to see the goodness

    And find the brighter side

    But these days, these eyes, have grown so tired

     

    Feels like rain’s about to fall

    Feels like trouble’s about to call

    Like there's something outside these walls

    That’s just waitin’ for faith to stall, faith to stall

     

    I don’t know the right words

    As I kneel down on the floor

    I’m just prayin’ dear God... I’m not alone

     

    Feels like rain’s about to fall

    Feels like trouble’s about to call

    Like there’s somethin’ outside these walls

    That’s just waitin’ for faith to stall, faith to stall
