Track Name: Drink Her Wine
With a dark, crimson finish like no other one
Sweet varietal, I’m hear to tell you, son
Hounded in my dreams, by the aroma of her call
Her poison’s in my veins, I think I’ve lost it all

I'm haunted by the memories of all the synchronicities
That brought me to the place where I believe
I told ‘em all I was doin’ fine, while she was fuckin’ up my mind
I only wanna drink her wine

Like a fool I fell for the vintage of her charms
Lost in the private reserve of her arms
Everything might look alright, but don’t you look too close
If you don’t mind I think I’ll take me another dose

I'm haunted by the memories of all the synchronicities
That brought me to the place where I believe
I told ‘em all I was doin’ fine, while she was fuckin’ up my mind
I only wanna drink her wine

Feel like I’ve fallen in a hole
Will I get out? Well, I don’t know
Ain't got the power to say no

If I knew everything then that I know these days
I never would have reveled in that very first taste
Love, logic, reason...don’t mean a thing to me
Just one more sip and then I swear that I’ll be free

I'm haunted by the memories of all the synchronicities
That brought me to the place where I believe
I told ‘em all I was doin’ fine, while she was fuckin’ up my mind
I only wanna drink her wine
Track Name: What I Want
All you pretty women better find your place in line
I got a dark haired beauty on my mind

Piquant and amusing, with a wit of sharpened steel
Spins me ‘round just like a roulette wheel

Know I’m ‘bout to lose my mind, I do it every goddamn time
Searchin’ for the things I want
Spotlight on the stage is bright, playin’ every single night
Now, you know just what I want

You’re the kind of fancy that I like to have around
Till another day, another town

Welcome to the night life, and the magick of its spell
Y’all switch places when I ring the bell

Know I’m ‘bout to lose my mind, I do it every goddamn time
Searchin’ for the things I want
Spotlight on the stage is bright, playin’ every single night
Now, you know just what I want

Flyin’ from the east and I’m fallin’ to the west
Infinite signs mark this as a jest

Tomorrow I’ll be leavin’, tonight I gotta see it
Crack the code, I’ll give you what you want
Yeah, what you want.

Callin’ out for freedom on the road that’s ever long
With nothin' but a guitar and a song

I ain’t so supercilious as to tell you what to do
But shake that ass, we’re here to rock for you

Know I’m ‘bout to lose my mind, I do it every goddamn time
Searchin’ for the things I want
Spotlight on the stage is bright, playin’ every single night
Now, you know just what I want

Rock n roll will set you free, get a little high you’ll see
Playin’ for you all is what I want

Heed the call and hear the sound, tear this motherfucker down
Rock n roll all night is what I want
Track Name: The Honky Tonks Have All Closed Down
I was my father's only son
Lived in the shadow of what he done

Till the day he said to me, boy, the true will set you free
And he vanished with a whisper and a gun

The honky tonks have all closed down
And the folks that I knew ain't around
So I hold my head up high, and I look to the sky
I feel ‘em here....by my side

On my watch, she died alone
For all my sins she did atone

Now I’m haunted in my dreams, I can hear the awful screams
Of the night, she took flight and was gone.

The honky tonks have all closed down
And the folks that we knew ain't around
So I hold my head up high, and I look to the sky
I feel ‘em here....by my side

The streets of my home town are clear
And I’m the only soul still living here

How did I get so old, that all my stories have been told
Don’t fear, the end is coming near

The honky tonks have all closed down
And the folks that I knew ain't around
So I hold my head up high, and I look to the sky
I feel you here....

The honky tonks have all closed down
Them folks that we knew, they ain't around
So we hold our head up high, and we look to the sky
Feel ‘em here....by my side.
Track Name: Days Of Wine And Roses
I’ll never forget the first time, I seen your summer blonde
Gettin’ drunk and rowdy at Sharon’s Pond

Romance of the ages, dipped in cherry wine
The feelin' of your soft skin next to mine

But what ever happened to those kids
And all them crazy, wild things we did

The day of wine and roses
The days that are long gone
It’s time for you and I to be movin’ on

Drivin’ on a long haul, so good we was so bad
Makin’ love in the back of my sleeper cab

All them nights on the highway, talkin’ until dawn
Singin' out our favorite country song

Got married, thought we’d have it all
But instead we sealed our fall

The day of wine and roses
The days that are long gone
It’s time for you and I to be movin’ on

The day of wine and roses
The days that have gone by
It’s time for you and I to say goodbye

Gone in a cocaine heartbeat, hell if I know where
A world of broken dreams gone without repair

We’re livin’ but pills and memories, there's nothing left to say
Lost our very souls along the way

But I can’t tell you when it changed
Cracks in our faces beyond our age

The day of wine and roses
The days that are long gone
It’s time for you and I to be movin’ on

The day of wine and roses
The days that have gone by
It’s time for you and I to say goodbye
Track Name: Too Many Women
I woke up this morning
Wonderin’ where the hell it is I was

I pulled out of Nashville
Cracked a beer for everything it does

Baby, I’m thinkin’ about your love

There’s too many women in this town
And they don’t like my music loud
I’ll meet you down at the Lost & Found
And if you can’t make it, well then…I’ll hang around

Girl, you ain’t no beauty queen
And I’m well aware I ain’t the best you’ve known

The pretty lights of city
They pulled us away from our country home

Baby, let’s drink to being alone

There’s too many women in this town
And they don’t like my music loud
I’ll meet you down at the Lost & Found
And if you can’t make it, well then…I’ll hang around

Remember that bar downtown
Slow dancin’ to the sound of November Rain

You told me then that you loved me
If I recall, I mighta said the same

Baby, let’s ride this big ol’ train!

There’s too many women in this town
And they don’t like my music loud
I’ll meet you down at the Lost & Found
And if you can’t make it, well then…I’ll hang around
Track Name: Retribution Waltz
In the Southwestern nation
They killed a young maiden
The one true love of my life

Know where I am goin’,
The blood will be flowin’
For I’d promised to make her my wife

There was talks of a Preacher
Mysterious creature
Who suddenly couldn’t be found

So I’d vowed that I’d find him
And put all the time in
To hear him make his final sound

I rolled with the outlaws
The justice of my cause
The honor for which I once stood
Forlorn and forsaken
My body it's breakin’
I did the best that I could

Each year I grew older
My heart it grew colder
As I killed those who did me no wrong

They stood in the way of
A labor of lost love
The only thing that moved me along

One day in Tuscon
A bar patron went on
About an new Preacher around

But he knew he’d been lyin’
For that day he was sighted
With a well known lady of town

I rolled with the outlaws
The justice of my cause
The honor for which I once stood
Forlorn and forsaken
My body it's breakin’
I did the best that I could

The church I did enter
He stood front and center
Heard every word that he said

A small bird, it flew in
With a plumage of crimson
Landed on a pew up ahead

He held up his bible
I held up my rifle
Scripture filled up the air

I claimed it was fiction
A sweet contradiction
I saw the guilt deep in his stare

I rolled with the outlaws
The justice of my cause
The honor for which I once stood
Forlorn and forsaken
My body it's breakin’
I did the best that I could

Scream out for mercy
Your god won’t save you now
The hammer of my vengeance
Is coming down…

Reign of blood and thunder
The corpses pile up high
The red sea'll be parted
With my cry…

Shine on, sweet diamond
My lover, my dear
I never stopped searching
All these years…

Brushed by a cool breeze
Fell down to my knees
Watched the blood spill from my chest

With my retribution
Came full absolution
So wow I must lay down to rest
