Track Name: Write Me A Few Lines
Lord when you get home baby
please write me a few lines
When you get home baby
write me a few of your lines
You know it'd do me so good
to relieve my worried mind

Oh I left my baby
standing in her back door cryin
Lord I left my baby
standing low, steady cryin on
I tell you she's doin just fine
but you know that'd I be lyin
Track Name: Baby You Gotta Be
Baby you got to be any other way
Hold me close, love me dearly, the message you relay
You got me wrong
You got me wrong

I'll tell you once again before I leave you here and put you on your way

Baby you had it all and gave it all away
One last chance to keep it strong, keep it all the same
You got me thinkin that I'm something
I never thought I was before

I'll tell you once again before I leave you here and put you on your way
I'll tell you once again before I leave you here, put you on your way

You put me in a bind and I don't see any other way
Track Name: Oklahoma
She mine all the way home now
Edith mine, been a long time oh
You girl is holdin nothin back ma
Even my weight on my bad load

On my bad load

She got me in her mind
Tired of wastin all my precious time
Some love, it just a coma
Don't know what I'm gonna do

When I'm back in Oklahoma

I am takin up for now
Seedy mind, reaching out oh no
Pretty ma, pretty ma don't know
Try to find out where did my day go

Where'd my day go?

She got me in her mind
Tired of wasting all my precious time
Some love, it just a coma
Don't know what I'm gonna do

When I'm back in Oklahoma
Track Name: Some Rainy Day
Well, some rainy day
Well, some rainy day
It's gonna find you
Some one way
And it's comin down
Ew lord, my weight
It's comin for you
Some rainy day
Track Name: LA Woman
I've been lickin
I've been sinkin
Ya, I've been drinkin
What was I thinkin?

Love that woman
In vain
Love that woman
All the same

LA Woman
You got needs
But I don't need you
To beg and plead

Love that woman
Sittin in the sun
Love that woman
And I got mine

LA Woman
Get you some
Daddy told you
Don't you have no fun

Daddy saw you
Shotgun
Daddy saw you
Get a shotgun

Get a shotgun
Track Name: So Close to Home
Well I skipped the feeling
To ignite the fire
Wouldn't hurt to keep you out
But I'm still the liar
Now the rent is done my friend
Am I not receiving?

Cause I've got no where to go
Cause I've got no where to go

Well the mind isn't going numb
To forget the reason
Left your heart without a cause
and it must be true
Your still in season
And I'm a hunted one

Cause I've got no where to go
Cause I've got no where to go
And I don't feel so close to home

Anymore
Track Name: Keep Me Outta Touch
When I come into town baby
Wanna see your face
Maybe we could get around

But the way you treat me girl
Wanna take my love
Turn and run or hit the ground

All this man wants is your hand
After all I done
Wouldn't think it'd be too much

But I'm steady eatin up every time that you
try to keep me outta touch

Keep me outta touch

When I got to leave this town
I hope it's you
By my side when I walk away

But the way you treat me girl
Wanna go back home
Pull out the Book and pray

If you feel the way that I do
We could take our time
Put our little wheels on track

Till then I sit by my box for a letter that says
your finally makin your way back

Your (no) way back...
Track Name: Tonkin Ghosts
Do you see the players?
The domination game?
Religion and Freedom
Keep our people tame
Keep our people tame

Do you point the finger
over seas to blame?
A new puppet arises
The passenger is the same
Passenger is the same

How long will it take you
to see curroption and shame?
By the time you notice
you won't remember your name

Won't remember your name
Track Name: The Rift
Not the way of God
I don't understand
Where it is I'm lost
Is the way of Man

If you want to see him
You gotta preach the Book
If you want to see him
You gotta preach the Book

When I get the look
Gonna preach the Book
Gonna talk the word
Until I know the Lord
Not the way of God...
I don't understand

If you want to see him
You gotta preach the Book
If you want to see him
You gotta preach the Book
Track Name: Dog On Water
When I walk the streets
Who else should I meet
Same three scraggly women
Comin on to me

When I can't oblige, they beg and they plead
Beg and they plead
Beg and they plead

Now when I step to the mic
Sometimes singin the blues
Make words on the spot
If the moment so choose

All them other cats
Don't know where it's at
