A World Away

wake up baby
listen to me
it's time to open your eyes
snap out of this dream
where do you go
when you space
right out in the middle of somethin'
i'm tryin' to say?
i can tell
i know you well
girl you're a world away

though you hold me
close my dear
you may as well be a million
miles from here
i've seen you light
your candle and pray
you got a new lover
or an old flame
i can tell
i know you well
girl you're a world away

i love you darlin'
hate to see you go
that's why it will break my spirit
when you bare your soul
but i will swallow
the sober truth
oh my hungry heart
is losin' you
i can tell
i know you well
girl you're a world away

Gone Pecan

stretch the road
beneath my treads
i got a tap in my toes
from a song in my head
i got a gibson firebird
and a dumble too
a coricidin bottle
to carry the blues
so don't come knockin'
we ain't home
me and mine
are gone pecan

out of the air
into my radio
on a strong signal
we got zydeco
yeah all the stars
are droppin' by
i'm locked on
and pull 'em out of the sky
so don't come knockin'
we ain't home
me and mine
are gone pecan

Natural World

there's somethin' in the air
i breathe this mornin'
caution in the wind
whisperin' warnings
about the melting ice
the rising tide
the burning forest
smoke signal in the sky
the shifting plates
under brick and steel
the ground we stand on
that's under the drill

the natural world is talkin'
the natural world got plenty to say

you can hear the story
but can you swallow the tale
about me and you
and poison in the well?
about stripping the mountain
to the naked truth
about a fall from grace
from the burden of proof
about a shot in the dark
a flare on the sun
an ivory tower
a poacher's gun
about bloody tracks
stained hands
a slick on the ocean
a line in the sand

the natural world is talkin'
the natural world got plenty to say

Promise Land

she got great expectations
down in louisianne
she got great expectations
down in louisianne
to leave her trailer park
the natives call the promise land

she said "please baby please now
come just as quick as you can"
she said "please baby please now
come just as quick as you can
and rescue me
away from the promise land"

now many a country mile
i'm poundin' under my van
yeah many a country mile
i'm poundin' under my van
so i don't break my word
i'm bound for the promise land

now when you pack your bags babe
don't forget your travelin' fan
now when you pack your bags
don't forget your travelin' fan
we're gonna blow tonight
out of the promise land

Fallin' For You

run
right out the door
though the night tears open
and the rain begins to pour
this i do
'cause i'm fallin'for you

scratch
on your window pane
sigh
when you call my name
this i do
'cause i'm fallin' for you

you got that swing
in the way you walk
you turn my head
and you read my thoughts
man overboard
into eyes of blue
like an open sky
i'm fallin' through
fallin' for you

spin
like a wheel of fire
roll and tumble
over the edge of desire
this i do
'cause i'm fallin' for you

you got that swing
in the way you walk
you turn my head
and you read my thoughts
man overboard
into eyes of blue
like an open sky
i'm fallin' through
fallin' for you

Ol' Lady Luck

i woke late this mornin'
the same misery
i killed a bottle last night
and now it's killin' me
whoa i'd wanted her to stay on
but ol' lady luck she gone

i wish i had me a nickel
for every dime i lost
i called upon the lady
but she wouldn't come across
man i'd wanted her to stay on
but ol' lady luck she gone
lady luck

if i had a mojo hand
i'd catch her with a charm
and hold her like a jealous lover
in my lovin' arms
oh i'd wanted her to stay on
but lady luck she gone

now mr. jailer please a favor
before you throw away the key
now if you happen on my lady
have her save a smile for me
man i'd wanted her to stay on
but ol' lady luck she gone

The Road We're On

drive into the sun
sinkin' down the road
feel our wheels in motion
that's when i know
that the road to freedom
is the road we're on

see our reflection
in the cities that come and go
from the rear view mirror
that's when I know
that the road to freedom
is the road we're on

the road we're on
the road we're on
the road to freedom
is the road we're on

drop down the top
you take the wheel
i'll hug the curves
so that you don't catch a chill
on the road to freedom
the road we're on

the road we're on
the road we're on
the road to freedom
is the road we're on

you can drive me crazy
you got the cruise control
just whisper in my ear babe
tell me what i already know
that the road to freedom
is the road we're on

the road we're on
the road we're on
the road to freedom
is the road we're on

Juke Box Mama

this magic box
is full of lights
and all the songs
that'll rock the night
i got lots of change
your aim is true
just press and play
then work the groove
'cause i love the way
you slide your shoes
in a meltdown boogie
let me wrap around you

juke box mama
juke box mama
juke box mama let me
wrap around you

there's a world of trouble
outside the door
for a little while
we'll forget we know
you can put a smile
back on my lips
just snap your fingers
and shake your hips
'cause i love the way
you make your move
when you pull me into
a rhythm for the blues

juke box mama

juke box mama give me
rhythm for the blues

juke box mama

wrap around you
