Cowboy Take Me Away (Martie Seidel/Marcus Hummon)

I said I wanna touch the earth I wanna break it in my hands I wanna grow something wild and unruly I wanna sleep on the hard ground In the comfort of your arms On a pillow of bluebonnets In a blanket made of stars Oh it sounds good to me I said Cowboy take me away Fly this girl as high as you can Into the wild blue Set me free oh I pray Closer to heaven above and Close to you, closer to you I wanna walk and not run I wanna skip and not fall I wanna look at the horizon And not see a building standing tall I wanna be only one For miles and miles Except for maybe you And your simple smile Oh it sounds good to me Yes it sounds so good to me Cowboy take me away Fly this girl as high as you can Into the wild blue Set me free oh I pray Closer to heaven above and Close to you, closer to you I said I wanna touch the earth I wanna break it in my hands I wanna grow something wild and unruly Oh it sounds so good to me Cowboy take me away Fly this girl as high as you can Into the wild blue Set me free oh I pray Closer to heaven above and Close to you, closer to you Closer to you Cowboy take me away Closer to you

Cold Day in July (Richard Leigh)

Sun's comin up comin up down on Main Street Children shout as they're running out to play Head in my hands here I am Standing in my bare feet Watching you drive away Watching you drive away You said that we were gonna last forever You said our love would never die It looks like spring and It feels like sunny weather But it's a cold day in July Oh sun's comin up on Down on Main Street Children shout as they're running out to play Whoa head in my hands Here I am standing in my bare feet Watching you drive away Watching you drive away The moon is full and my arms are empty All night long how I've pleaded and cried You always said the day that the day you would leave me Would be a cold day in July Here comes that cold day in July

Good-bye Earl (Dennis Linde)

Mary Anne and Wanda were the best of friends All through their high school days Both member of the 4H Club Both active in the FFA After graduation Mary Anne went out lookin' For a bright new world Wanda looked all around this town And all she found was Earl Well it wasn't two weeks After she got married that Wanda started gettin abused She put on dark glasses and long sleeved blouses And make-up to cover a bruise Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce She let the law take it from there But Earl walked right through the restraining order And put her in intensive acare Right away Mary Anne flew in from Atlanta On a red eye midnight flight She held Wanda's hand as they Worked out a plan And it didn't take em long to decide That Earl had to die Good-bye Early Those black eyed peas Tasted all right to me Earl You're feelin weak Why don't you lay down and sleep Earl Ain't it dark Wrapped up in that tarp Earl The cops came by to bring Earl in They searched the house High and low Then they tipped their hats And said "thank you ladies If you hear from him let us know" Well weeks went by and Spring turned to Summer And Summer faded into Fall And it turns out he was a missing person Who nobody missed at all So the girls bought some land And a roadside stand Down on Highway 109 They sell Tennessee Ham And strawberry jam And they don't Lost any sleep at night cause Earl had to die Good-bye Earl We need a break Let's go out to the lake Earl We'll pack a lunch And stuff you in the truth Earl Well is that all right Good Let's good for a ride Earl Hey

Don't Waste Your Heart (Emily Robinson/Natalie Maines)

For the life of me I can't believe That you're on your knees beggin please All the pushin away and putting down Can't you see you're gettin the run around Oh it's plain to see you'd rescue me >From my loneliness so called unhappiness Oh I didn't mean to cause you pain I've got nothin to lose and nothin to gain And don't waste your heart on a wild thing She's got a soul that won't settle on one thing Whoa this bird can't sing when you've tied its wings Don't waste your heart on me It's funny how the girls get burned And honey as far as I'm concerned The tables have turned And don't waste your heart on a wild thing She's got a soul that won't settle on one thing Whoa this bird can't sing when you've tied its wings Don't waste your heart on me And I'm here to apologize My heart can't compromise Don't waste your heart on me

Sin Wagon (Natalie Maines/Emily Robinson/Stephony Smith)

Well now I've been good for way too long Found my red dress and I'm gonna throw it on Bout to get too far gone Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition Need a little bit more of my twelve ounce nutrition One more helpin of what I've been havin I'm takin my turn on the sin wagon On a mission to make something happen Feel like Delilah lookin for Samson Do a little mattress dancin That's right I said mattress dancin Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition Need a little bit more of what I've been missin I don't know where I'll be crashin I'm takin my turn on the sin wagon When its my turn to march up to glory I'm gonna have one hell of a story That's if he forgives me Oh Lord please forgive me Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition Need a little bit more of that sweet salvation They may take me with my feet draggin But I'll fly away on a sin wagon I'll fly away on a sin wagon

Without You (Natalie Maines/Eric Silver)

I've sure enjoyed the rain But I'm looking forward to the sun You have to feel the pain When you love the love you gave someone I thought by now the time Would take away these lonely tears I hope you're doing time all alone But where do I go from here Cause Without you I'm not okay And without you I've lost my way My heart's stuck In second place ooh Without you Well I never thought I'd be Lying here without by my side It seems unreal to me that The life you promised was a lie You made it look so easy Making into memories I guess you got what you wanted But what me cause Without you I'm not okay And without you I've lost my way My heart's stuck In second place ooh Without you Somebody tell my head to try and tell my heart That I'm better off without Cause baby I can't live Without you I'm not okay And without you I've lost my way My heart's stuck In second place ooh Without you

Some Days You Gotta Dance (Troy Johnson/Marshall Morgan)

It was about five til five on Friday We were all getting ready to go And the boss man started screaming And his veins began to show He said you and you come with me Cause you're gonna have to stay My heart was thumping I was jumping I had to get away Some days you gotta dance Live it up when you get the chance Cause when the world doesn't make no sense And you're feeling just a little too tense Gotta loosen up those chains and dance Well I was talking with my baby over a glass of tea He asked the loaded question He said how do you feel about me My mind was racin, I was pacin But the words just wouldn't come And there was only one thing Left to do, I feel it comin on Some days you gotta dance Live it up when you get the chance Cause when the world doesn't make no sense And you're feeling just a little too tense Gotta loosen up those chains and dance Some days you gotta dance Live it up when you get the chance Cause when the world doesn't make no sense And you're feeling just a little too tense Gotta loosen up those chains and dance You gotta loosen up those chains and dance Come on loosen up those chains and dance

Let Him Fly (Patty Griffin)

Ain't no talkin to this man Ain't no pretty other side Ain't no way to understand the stupid words of pride It would take an acrobat and I already tried all that I'm gonna let him fly... mmm Things can move at such a pace The second hand just waved good-bye You know that light has left his face But you can't recall just where or why So there was really nothing to it I just went and cut right through it I said I'm gonna let him fly Oh yeah There's no mercy in a live wire No rest at all in freedom Choices we are given It's no choice at all The proof is in the fire You touch before it moves away.. yeah But you must always know How long to stay and when to go And there ain't no talkin to this man He's been trying to tell me so It took a while to understand The beauty of just letting go Cause it would take an acrobat and I already tried all that I'm gonna let him fly... fly whoa I'm gonna let him fly... fly I'm gonna let him fly... fly
