Track Name: El Paso
C Em
El Paso I love you
F C
Though I've never been there
C Em
El Paso it's true
F G
Guess what I just don't care
Am C
You sound like a fun time
F C
Like a girl with a smile
Am
You can have my last dime
F G
And my heart for a while

C Em
El Paso I love you
F C
Like a sailor loves the sea
C
El Paso show me how to
Be a man who's really free

You sound like an old friend
And a night on the town
Like the rules we will bend
When no one's around

El Paso I love you
Like the memory of a dream
El Paso I love you
Like the coolness of a stream

You look like the fire
That's missing from my life
Like the curves I admire
On someone else's wife
Track Name: Occupied Northern Mexico
I live in occupied northern Mexico
I live in a land that was stolen decades ago
They want to build a wall
They're afraid their empire might fall
I live in a land where love just won't grow

She comes from a land where people don't say no
Her daddy drives a truck from Shreveport to Amarillo
She don't talk in a Southern drawl
She's got no friends at City Hall
She lives in a land where love can glow

She takes me in her arms at night
She says all the words that feel so right
Feel so right

Moved South of the border, to Durango
We live in a small house, we live, low and slow
We sit outside and watch our kids kick a ball
We sit outside with not a care, for it all
Track Name: Laundromat
she and i sat
in the laundromat
we stayed a while
but no one smiled

They're looking for change
We're looking for strange
They all look down
In this part of town

She said to me
it wouldn't be wrong
if you forgot me
I could be on the tip of your tongue

She and I sat
Like an acrobat
Walkin' a tight rope
His heart full of hope

Looking for lust
In this city of dust
Looking for trouble
To come burst our bubble

She said to me
it wouldn't be wrong
if you forgot me
I could be on the tip of your tongue

The sun is rising
It's so surprising
We stayed up all night
Doing it right

She and I parted
Not broken hearted
For tonight she'll belong
On the tip of my tongue.
Track Name: My Gal
I met my gal when I was 8.
I first held her hand on our first date
I married her when I was 22
She's the one for me like I'm the one for you

I first met you when I was 38
Sorry to say, but that's a little too late
I love her just as much as when I was 22
She's the one for me like I'm the one for you

You say we can live for the islands tonight
You say you know how to make it all feel all right
You say we can be there tomorrow at first light
But she's the one I wanna hold tight

One night with you and I'll forget about fate
One night with you and I'll forget my soul mate
One night with you and I'll never feel blue
She's the one for me like I'm the one for you
Track Name: Train Man
Am C
They call him a hobo
F E
But he's more of a train man

Guitar in tow
He's working on his master plan
C G
Hitching a ride across the south
F E
They know he's coming from word of mouth

They'll buy him a shot or two
He'll play his guitar and they'll dance and they'll scream
They won't feel so blue
They'll forget they're not living the dream

Am - C - F - E x2

C G
Hitching a ride across the south
F E
They know he's coming from word of mouth
Am C
They call him a hobo
F E
But he's more of a train man
Working his mojo
The hellhounds are barking as loud as they can
C G
They say he traded his soul
The Devil's waiting for him down a dark, dark hole
Track Name: Words You Say
Am C
There's words you say when you're at home
Am C
There's words you say when you're all alone
F Am G
There's words you say when you hang up the phone

There's thoughts you have when no one's there
There's thoughts you'd never dream to share
There's thoughts you hide 'cause no one will care

C
And through it all you still believe
That the day won't come when she will leave
As she did last xmas eve
And through it all you have to know
That she'll be strong and just say no
When that guy asks her to go


There's fears you have when you don't drink
There's fears you have when you start to think
There's fears you have when you're standing on the brink
Track Name: I Can't Help
C G
And I can't help but think,
Am F
What would Waylon do?
Would he pour you another drink?
Would he write a song for you?

Oh I can't help but wonder,
What would Johnny do?
Would he let you buckle under?
Would he help you break through?

Em - Am - Am - Em

I can't help but worry,
What would Willie do?
Would he tell you a story,
Eyes in the rain, so blue?

I can't help but question
What would Old Kris do?
Would he talk about depression?
Would he share his point of view?

There's wisdom in them all songs,
There's love in there too.
And if you can't right all your wrongs,
At least you know that I love you.
Track Name: Again
Life is calm and life is peaceful
Lying there on the ground
Life is funny and wistful
As I listen to every sound
As I smile and feel

I no longer look for shelter
I no longer need a roof
I'm at peace with mother nature
No longer need the proof
That god is real

Em G
And as I look up at a star
C
Shining so bright from afar
D
No matter where we are
I think about my life of sin
I think about the peace within
I think about falling in love... again

I no longer look for gold
I no longer need for things
Got no story to be told
Don't care what tomorrow brings
If we can love, we can heal
Track Name: (She ain't) the kind
She ain't the kind you bring to mama
No, she ain't the kind you bring to church
She ain't the kind to bring good karma
She's more likely to leave you in a lurch

But she does things to you when no one's looking
And sometimes when they are
Some people claim that she might be hookin'
But that's just jealousy tainting a shooting star

She whispers in your ear 'cause she likes your shivers
And she likes your giggles too
Well in life there's takers and there's givers
And she'll play either one for you

She's not the kind to just cuddle on the couch in the kitchen
While you gently rub her head
She'd rather wear high hells that she calls bitchin'
And ride you all night long instead
Track Name: Love Gone Strong
She smiles at me in the dead of night
I wanna hold her with all my might
But I know she's not real

She comes to me when I'm, all alone
She comes to me from parts unknown
But I know she's not real

C G
But I need her to be
Em
I need her here with me
Am D
I need her to see
C D G
That we can set each other free

She says it's love gone wrong
I say it's love gone strong
She says it can't be real

She is promised to another one
She says her life she can't outrun
Her life she can't "unreal"
