"BURGUNDY BED"

ITS LIKE A SPRING DAY ON AN AUGUST NIGHT 

BUTTERFLIES SINGING IN THE MORNING LIGHT AND 

I WONDER 

WHY YOUVE COME TO ME

 

YOU KNOW, I DREAMT YOU HELD MY HAND

IN FRONT OF SO MANY PEOPLE 

AND YOU CLAIMED ME THERE AS YOUR VERY OWN

 

BUT THERE’S SOMETHING OUTSIDE 

THAT SAYS ITS ALL WRONG 

 

BUT WHEN IM ALONE WITH YOU

I KNOW WHATS GOOD AND WHATS RIGHT- 

 

AND SO I WONDER WHY WEVE COME TO BE 

DOES THE SOUL IN YOU REMEMBER THE SOUL IN ME

 

CUZ DARLIN’ ILL REMEMBER YOUR LOVE

DARLIN’ IM AS YOUNG AS OUR LOVE

DARLIN IM A LOVE THAT WANTS US TO BE

 

(INSTRUMENTALS)

AND SO I WONDER ON THIS SILVER AUGUST EVENING

WHEN YOUR SHINING SO BRIGHTLY IN FRONT OF ME

 

ILL BE HAPPY TO ACCOMMODATE YOU

ILL BE HAPPY TO BE SEEN WITH YOU

ILL BE LOVED ON A BURGUNDY BED BY YOU

ILL BE LOVED ON A BURGUNDY BED BY YOU

 

BURGUNDY BABY BAYOU

"SANDRA JAMES"

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE DAY SHE LOST HER LOVER THE SOUL TOOK ANOTHER 

AND THE ROAD WAS LEFT OPEN AND WIDE

 

THE THIEF CAME UPON HER AND TOLD HER THAT HE LOVED HER AND 

WONDERED WHY THE HEART CAME TO HIM AND CRIED

AND THE WORLD LOST ITS LOVER AND WAR IS NEVER THE ANSWER 

BUT SOMEHOW WE ALWAYS THROW STONES

JAILED IN DENIAL BETRAYED BY THE LIARS 

STOLEN BY THE LOVERS OF STEEL

CAGED IN SANCTUARIES SHE’S BATHED IN LUMINARIES AND 

THE POETS THEY KNEEL DOWN AND CRY CUZ

SANDRA LOST HER LOVER AND JAMES TOOK ANOTHER 

AND THEY BOTH LAID DOWN TO DIE

AND THE WORLD WONDERS WHY THEIR SKIN IS SO COLD

(AND THE WORLD WONDERS WHY THEIR SKIN IS SO COLD)

JAILED IN DENIAL BETRAYED BY THE LIAR STOLEN BY THE LOVERS OF STEEL

 

IM CAGED IN SANCTUARIES IM BATHED IN LUMINARIES AND 

I KNEEL DOWN BY THE POETS AND CRY

AND THEN THE ANGELS CAME DOWN (ANGELS COME DOWN)

AND THEY SPEAK TO ME (AND THEY TALK TO ME)

AND THEY'RE NEVER SEEN AGAIN

ANGELS CAME DOWN AND THEY SPEAK TO ME 

AND THEY'RE NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN

"DEEP DECEMBER BLUE"

I FOUND YOU STARING BACK AT ME 

STRANGER TO MY SIGHT 

YOU TOOK MY HEART AND RAN OLD MAN 

YOU STAY OUT OF THIS WOMAN'S LIFE

I DONT NEED THIS KINDA BLUE NO MORE 

I DONT NEED THIS KIND OF BLUE

DONTYA CARE ABOUT THE SWEET THING 

YOU SO ONCE KNEW OR 

DID I BECOME TAINTED 

LIKE A DEEP DECEMBER BLUE

 

I SEE A NOW LITTLE MAN,

THINKING YOUR SOMEONE 

IN THIS LONESOME LITTLE TOWN 

 

HOW DO I JUDGE YOU 

WHEN IVE ONLY GOT MYSELF TO BLAME

 

IN THIS LITTLE LOVE GAME

(INSTRUMENTALS)

"BROKEN HEART DARLIN'"

 

 

 

 

 

COME EARLY ONE MORNING JUST DON’T BOTHER KNOCKING

YOU KNOW THE DAY LIGHT HERE BRINGS NOTHING NEW TO YOU

 

COME EARLY ONE MORNING JUST DON’T BOTHER CALLING

CUZ WHAT YOU HEARD MY DARLING WAS TRUE

 

TIMES LIKE THESE THEY DON’T MEAN NOTHING TO ME

BUT I KNOW HOW UNFAIR THAT IS TO YOU

BUT IF I’M NOT NOW GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME 

 

THEN WHAT MAKES YOU THINK ID BE CLOSE ENOUGH 

OR WISE ENOUGH OR EVEN GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU

                                SO DONT YOU BE PICKING UP ALL MY BROKEN ARROWS 

DONT YOU BE WIPIN’ AWAY ALL MY CRIMES

IM TIRED OF SEEING YOU GROW LONELY 

IM TIRED OF THINKING AND PRETENDING

THAT EVERYTHING IS FINE

COME EARLY ONE MORNING 

I KNOW THE DAYLIGHT WILL BE A RISING 

AND ITS SURELY BRINGING SOMETHING NEW TO YOU 

 

CUZ IF THERE WAS ANYTHING IN THIS WORLD THAT WAS REAL

MY GOD AND MY DARLING IT IS YOU

I SAID IF THERE WAS ANYTHING IN THIS WORLD THAT WAS REAL 

OH MY GOD AND MY DARLING 

MY DARLIN' MY BROKEN HEART DARLIN'

 

IT IS YOU

 

"JOHNNY AND JUNE"

WHEN JUNE MET JOHNNY

SHE TOLD HIM IT WOULD SOON SLOW DOWN

BUT THAT BIG RIDE TICKET

ON A HIGH SPEED MOTOR

MIXING THEM UP

AND SHOOTIN' THEM OUT

AND ROLLIN THEM OVER AGAIN

AND JOHNNY THEN SAID

JUNE   WILL YOU MARRY ME

CUZ  I HAD

A REALLY BAD DREAM

 

AND JUNE SAID JOHNNY

AND ITS 2AM

AND JOHNNY

"WOUNDED KNEE"

(INTENDED FOR WILLIE NELSON)

 

THE ROAD OF COUNTRY AT TIMES YOU SEE

 LIVES ON A WOUNDED KNEE

SO WHY DO YOU COME TO ME

LIKE A POET WHO PREACHES OR A SAINT WHO LIVES TO LIE

WHY DO YOU COME TO ME

 

FEAR I CRY WHAT MISERY

TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE YOU SEE

 

YET TIME CAN BE LIKE OUR OWN LIGHT YOU SEE

TIME HAS MADE YOU DRIFT UPON ME

 

MY FRIEND  MY LOVE  COME BACK TO ME

MY FRIEND  MY LOVE  COME BACK TO ME

THERE'S A DIFFERENT PLACE WHERE HEAVEN RINGS

WHERE FORGIVENESS WILL WALK THROUGH OUR WOUNDS

WHERE WISDOM WILL WALK THROUGH OUR WOUNDS

 

AND THE NIGHTINGGALES SANG FOR I

AND THE NIGHTINGALES WILL SING FOR I

AND THE LIGHT WILL SING FOR I

THEY WILL PEACEFULLY SING THROUGH OUR WOUNDS 

THEY WILL PEACEFULLY SING THROUGH OUR WOUNDS

THEY WILL PEACEFULLY SING THROUGH OUR WOUNDS

​A TENNESSEE SONG
