Track Name: Crows and kisses
I lit out of town, riding backwards on a mule
a pocket full of quarters I was racing with the moon
just a little country dork with a cigar box guitar
a broken set of legs and 2 big hands full of scars
she was just the kind of girl the whole damn world liked to harm
too blond hair too big stare been too long on the farm
the kind of girl that you might miss if you don't look long and hard
she was halfway through her suicide note when I happened along.
we first met and it all fit like rainwater on leaves
a cold wind started blowing pulling branches off the trees
I knew first time I kissed her that she would ruin me in the end
the crows were flying overhead and I kissed her again.
In a western pa city we robbed the local trust
it didn't even feel real till they shot at both of us
they blew out the windshield it was raining blood and glass
I put the pedal to the floor but we were almost out of gas
I turned to my baby just to ask what we should do
then I saw her hand on the spot where the bullet had gone through
I pulled off the highway and she died right in my arms
then they took me away 30 years behind bars.
The judge he loudly asked me was I sorry about what I'd done
I said I have no regrets who can be sorry about true love
I knew first time I kissed her she would ruin me in the end.
The crows were flying overhead and I kissed her again.
The crows were flying overhead and I kissed her again.
Track Name: Davids Tao
Life on top of an uncarved block
everything is one
open fields factories and docks
in this fallen town
David plays with his jump rope
A delirious son
with every turn there is new hope
in Davids Tao
tears am I are
Tears am I are
I am where tears are
tears am I are
with every turn there is new hope
for a delirious son
David plays with his jump rope
In this fallen town
open fields factories and docks
every thing is one
that's life on top of an uncarved block
in Davids tao
tears am I are
Tears am I are
I am where tears are
tears am I are
Track Name: The girl with the moon in her hair
The girl with the moon in her hair
says nothing else matters but the lights on the freeway
nothing else matters but travelling by railway
nothing else matters but the field where the planes land
nothing else matters so she'll go while she can
the girl with the moon in her hair
says nobody kneels by the statues in the grave yard
nobody kneels in the corner of the school yard
nobody kneels in the pews of their own chuch
nobody kneels there just too busy working
the girl with the moon in her hair
says nobody cries at the end of the movie
nobody cries and they don't say their sorry
nobody cries at their own daughters wedding
nobody cries at the unhappy ending
the girl with the moon in her hair
says she was born on the edge of the city
says the next day both her folks turned up missing
says that she spent most of her young life running
says she was born on a crow ugly Monday
the girl with the moon in her hair
says she;s just looking for the yard where the trains go
says she's just looking for a heart that can beat slow
says she;s just looking for some dirt for a fresh grave
says she's just looking for the end of a long long day
the girl with the moon in her hair
the girl with the moon in her hair
the girl with the moon in her hair
nobody listens to the girl with the moon in her hair.
Track Name: Why'd you have to leave me on a train
why'd you have to leave me on a train
I wish you would have walked away instead
because every time I hear that whistle whine
I see you leave me all over again
why'd you have to leave me in the rain
I wish you would have waited for a nicer day
its hard enough to do this living with out you
but now I cry every time it rains
why'd you have to leave your stuff behind
I stare at it day and night
all the things you left won't let me forget
I;m living with the ghosts of our old life
why'd you have to leave me on a train
I wish you would have walked away instead
because every time I hear that whistle whine
I see you leave me all over again
Track Name: Love everyone
there a guy in my town with a sign in his yard
says if you support the troops you;d end this war
his neighbors sign says support our troops let them win
now old friends might never speak again
and it just makes me sad when its all said and done
how some folks won't listen to any one
Jesus Christ said all you need is love
and who should you love you should love every one
its a scary old world when love makes us sick
and people point fingers saying your kind caused this
I don't care who you love don't care who you kiss
when a good man is gone he deserves to be missed
and it just makes me sad when its all said and done
how some folks won;t listen to any one
the Beatles they said all you need is love
and who should you love you should love every one
they'll even fight over what God to believe in
is it the one called Allah or the one called Jesus
I can tell you right now it can all be so easy
if we'd look for God in every body we meet
and it just makes me sad when its all said and done
how some folks won't listen to any one
Christ and the Beatles said all you need is love
and who should you love you should love every one
there's a guy in my town with a sign in his yard
says if you support the troops you would end this war
his neighbors sign says support out troops let them win
now two old friends might never speak again.
