Sweet Right Here

Passenger Seat

Passenger side, I slide on in
Vinyl seats soft from the heat of the sun
Chewin' on a Slim Jim, can't stop
Thinkin' about him
Yeah, yeah, yeah he's the one
Yeah, yeah, yeah he's the one

Ooh life's so sweet right here in the
Passenger seat
Ooh yeah life's so sweet
When I look to my left, see his
Suntanned hands
His muddy river hair and his
Thousand-acre plans
I'm all shook up like a quarter in a can
Ain't life sweet in the passenger seat

I daydream of me and a cold cotton pillow
And the feel of his skin
The windowsill smiles and before I know it
I'm miles away sittin' next to him
Miles away sittin' next to him

Ooh life's so sweet right here in the
Passenger seat
Ooh yeah life's so sweet
When I look to my left, see his
Suntanned hands
His muddy river hair and his
Thousand-acre plans
I'm all shook up like a quarter in a can
Ain't life sweet yeah

Shiftin' those gears baby, one, two, three
Then he shifts those ocean eyes back to me
Can't imagine a moment any better than this
Then we kiss

Ooh life's so sweet right here in the
Passenger seat
Ooh yeah, life's so sweet
Ooh life's so sweet right here in the
Passenger seat
Ooh yeah life's so sweet, it's life's so sweet
It's life's so sweet, it's so sweet in the
Passenger seat

Life's so, life's so
Life's so sweet
Sweet right here, right here

Come Home Soon

I put away the groceries
And I take my daily bread
I dream of your arms around me
As I tuck the kids in bed

I don't know what you're doing
And I don't know where you are
But I look up at that great big sky
And I hope you're wishing on that same bright star
I wonder, I pray

And I sleep alone
I cry alone
And it's so hard living here on my own
So please, come home soon
(Come home soon)
I know that we're together
Even though we're far apart
And I'll wear our lucky penny round my neck
Pressed to my heart
I wonder, I pray

And I sleep alone
I cry alone
And it's so hard living here on my own
So please, come home soon
(Come home soon)

I still imagine your touch
It's beautiful missing something that much
But sometimes love needs a fighting chance
So I'll wait my turn until it's our turn to dance
I wonder, I pray

I sleep alone
I cry alone
Without you this house is not a home
So please, come home soon
I walk alone
I try alone and
I'll wait for you, don't want to die alone
So please, come home soon
Come home soon
Come home soon

5 4 3 2 Run

She stares all night at the plaster peeling
Off of the shadows she painted on the ceiling
Trying to find some philosophical meaning
To life
But the truth is Ruth is ready to hatch
She's gotta break the door down,
Gotta bust a latch
She's gotta super-sized itch
That's gotta be scratched, alright

She stands up and gets down
And digs her heels out of that
Pea-pickin' town
Hey yeah, what a waste
There's more to life than just takin' up space
Hey this is s'posed to be fun
5 4 3 2 ready run

So she sold her diamond ring
And bought a Winnebago
Found her way to Heaven on the
Way to San Diego
Chased her ruby red boots anywhere
That they'd go, anytime
She got sidetracked and backpacked
Her way to Atlanta
Picked a pocketful of posies, got
Her busted in 'Bama
Truck stop trollop, selling roses
From a van for a dime
She woke up and broke down
Collect call to that pea-pickin' town

Hey yeah, what a waste
There's more to life than just takin' up space
Hey this is s'posed to be fun
5 4 3 2 ready run

Run, run, run, run all the way back home
Run away from the great unknown
It felt good for a minute, till she got
Stuck in it
Stuck in it

Her yellow brick road crashed
Right through the rose-colored glass
Rose-colored glass

Hey yeah, what a waste
There's more to life than the thrill of
The chase
Hey this is s'posed to be fun
5 4 3 2 ready run

Hey yeah, what a waste
There's more to life than the thrill of
The chase
Hey this is s'posed to be fun
5 4 3 2 ready run

Don't Worry 'Bout A Thing

Ever been misunderstood, misused, or misled
Ever knocked on the sky
And had it fall on your head
Well, don't worry 'bout it, don't worry
Ever lost your luggage, your marbles, your house
Or found yourself in bed with Uncle Sam or Mickey Mouse
Ever been accused of murder on Music Row
Or caught in morning traffic when you really gotta go, oh no

Life is funny, life's a mess
Sometimes a curse, sometimes a blessing
Don't worry 'bout a thing, don't worry 'bout it
Life gets sticky, life can bruise
Sometimes you win sometimes youre losing
No matter what it brings
Don't worry 'bout a thing

Ever sat yourself down when the seat is all wet
Or see your "ex" sucking face with a little brunette
Don't worry 'bout it, no don't worry
Ever lost your religion, ever lost your best friend
Or found your last record in the bargain bin
Or been stuck in a divorce like crazy glue
Or scraped someone else's gum off the bottom of your shoe
Boo hoo!

Life is funny, life's a mess
Sometimes a curse, sometimes a blessing
Don't worry 'bout a thing, don't worry 'bout it
Life gets sticky, life can bruise
Sometimes you win sometimes your losing
No matter what it brings
Don't worry 'bout a thing

(Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah - Blah, Blah,
Blah, Blah, Blah, - Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah)
Don't worry, don't worry

We all got a little junk in the trunk
And when you're feelin' good as sunk
Remember, everything will be just fine
If I laugh at yours then you'll laugh at mine

Life is funny, life's a mess
Sometimes a curse, sometimes a blessing
Don't worry 'bout a thing, don't worry 'bout it
Life gets sticky, life can bruise
Sometimes you win sometimes your losing
No matter what it brings
Don't worry

Life is funny, life's a mess
Sometimes a curse, sometimes a blessing
Don't worry 'bout a thing, no don't worry 'bout it
Life gets sticky, life can bruise
Sometimes you win sometimes your losing
No matter what it brings
Don't worry 'bout a thing

(Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah - Blah, Blah,
Blah, Blah, Blah, - Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah)
Don't worry, don't worry
Life gets sticky, life can bruise
Sometimes you win sometimes your losing
No matter what it brings
Don't worry 'bout a thing
(Thank you very much)

360 Degrees of You

I wish you lived on the corner where I live
So I could look at you all the day long
Lickety lip got me flippin' my lid, yeah
Nibblin' my thumb 'cause I want me some
Ooh, just a little bit a ooh
Am I making you uncomfortable?

And if you lived on the corner where I lived
I'd hang around like an apple in a tree
Borrow some bread, stick of butter, cup of milk
And some sugar for me
I'm cooking something sweet
Ooh just a little bit a ooh

Looking once, looking twice
Better get me a bucket of ice
Go on do whatever you do
I'll just sit here enjoying the view
Whistling Dixie
360 degrees of you ooh

I picture me twisted up in your t-shirt
Pink lemonade and a squeaky porch swing
Don't know your name yet, I guess it
Wouldn't hurt
If you gave me a ring - a big diamond ring
Ooh well a girl can dream ooh

Looking once, looking twice
Better get me a bucket of ice
Go on do whatever you do
I'll just sit here enjoying the view
Whistling Dixie
360 degrees of you ooh

Looking once looking twice
Your a splash of Tabasco on hot apple pie
Baby girls like it too
Like to sit around enjoying the view
Whistling Dixie, 360
Whistling Dixie, 360 degrees of you ooh

Just a little bit of you, ooh
Gots to gots to have you, ooh
Just a little bit of you, ooh
Oh, I'm gonna have you

Without a Sound

I pull the covers 'cross the bed
I tuck away the thoughts in my head
And I live behind closed doors
Knowing I will always love you more
And I won't fall apart
I won't lie in pieces on the ground
I won't fall apart
If we say it all without a sound

If we could last another day
Filled with nothing left to say
I will know I've loved my best
Then maybe I could put my heart to rest

And I won't fall apart
I won't lie in pieces on the ground
And I won't fall apart
If we say it all without a sound

If I could make the sun rise a little too slow
To keep from hearing what I already know

And I won't fall apart
I won't lie in pieces on the ground
No I won't fall apart
If we say it all without a sound
I will live behind closed doors
Knowing I will always love you more

Love Goes On

When I said I love you, baby
You said knock on wood
I'm afraid I knocked harder
Than I probably should
Those mockingbird words got away from me
Wish I could take them back, yeah

I wonder how you've been
Since we kissed good-bye
Cause the grass ain't any greener
Here on my side
Thought the broken pieces
Would all blow away
When the season changed
But nothing's changed

The alarm still rings at five-fifteen
The day goes off like a rifle
Mrs. Jones next door is still extreme
Goes on and on about the Bible
What comes around still goes around
Sun comes up, sun goes down
And love goes on
Yeah, love goes on when you're gone

If we ran into each other, wonder what I'd say
Baby, please come home
Or, looks like rain today
Heard you're moving to Denver
No, I'd never have guessed
Or would I just confess

The alarm still rings at five-fifteen
The day goes off like a rifle
Mrs. Jones next door is still extreme
Goes on and on about the Bible
What comes around still goes around
Sun comes up, sun goes down
And love goes on
Yeah, love goes on when you're gone

It's an ache in the bones, it's a
Ghost in the trees
It's the one little tear that could
Fill up the sea
I happened to you, you happened to me
But now that's gone
And love goes on, yeah love goes on
I said, love goes on
And love goes on and on and on and on

Yeah the alarm still rings at five-fifteen
The day goes off like a rifle
Mrs. Jones next door, shes still extreme
Goes on and on about the Bible
What comes around still goes around
Sun comes up, sun goes down
And love goes on
I say love goes on
Love goes on when you're gone

Yeah, when you're gone
(It's an ache in the bones
It's a ghost in the trees)
Yeah, yeah when you're gone
(It's the one little tear
That could fill up the sea)

(It's an ache in the bones
It's a ghost in the trees)
Yeah, yeah when you're gone
(It's the one little tear
That could fill up the sea)

Borrowed Home

I know you're gonna break it
You're gonna break it clean
This frame never could take
A season so cruel and mean
I can't be who I wanna be
These walls aren't mine

Nobody else can make me right
Nobody else can feel this wrong
And in one moment I am light
Another dead as night
I should have known I'd never own
This borrowed home

Too deep into the passage
Of love so overgrown
And now forever I'm cast
As heavy as sinking stone
I can't rise when I wanna rise
In this bed I sleep with ghosts
Nobody else can make me right
Nobody else can feel this wrong
And in one moment I am light
Another dead as night
I should have known I'd never own
This borrowed home

The windows open and the truth closes in
What a sweet beginning to the bitter end

I can't live where I wanna live
If I can't find my way home

Nobody else can make me right
Nobody else can feel this wrong
And in one moment I am light
Another dead as night
I should have known I'd never own
This borrowed home

I'm home
Borrowed home
Yeah, I'm home

I Dare You

God only knows how I've needed a friend
Who can see through the boldness and pride
Someone strong enough to put my faith in
Someone willing to let me inside
So be a man
And be my man
I dare you to need me like nobody else
I dare you to feel me like you've never felt
I dare you to want to want
Want to be good to me

Baby you've got your reasons dangling
From kite strings
Can you open your hands and let them fly
I know you won't always say and do the
Right things
But some things are worth a try
If you can
Be my man

I dare you to know me like I've never known
I dare you to show me that I can be shown
Dare you to want to want
Want to be good to me

Tell me I'm
Tell me I'm the one who deserves you
And every time
Every time you know that you want to
Yeah, I dare you

I dare you to hold me
Like you never will again
Kiss me and leave the earth standing still
Dare you to want to want
I dare you to need me like nobody else
I dare you to feel me like you've never felt
Dare you to want to want
To want to be good to me
Yeah, I dare you to want to want
Want to be good to me

A Woman's Work

Ruby's got a government that rules inside her head
A third eye, a crystal ball, her mama always said
It would guide her
If she kept it inside her

The freak across the street tried to contaminate her skin
She was thinking "who would miss him?"
The world's about to end
And he'd fit perfectly into her catastrophe

She's a woman at heart and a man on a mission
A Saint to purify the human condition
She's a fortune teller, but she's never gonna tell
There's a worm in the bottom of a dead wishing well

A woman's work is never done
A woman's work is never done
Never, when she's a loaded gun, loaded gun
Never done, never when she's a loaded gun, loaded gun

She found it funny that nine and ten were easier to do
After she'd meticulously filtered out a few
Still the voices shout
Take the garbage out

She was raised to believe that you get what you pray for
If God was really good then she wouldn't have to wait for
Him to drop the gavel, so she'll do it all herself
There's a worm in the bottom of a dead wishing well

A woman's work is never done
A woman's work is never done
Never, when she's a loaded gun, loaded gun
Never done, never when she's a loaded gun, loaded gun

When the flashing lights cut through the billowing dust
Her voice cried "Looks like it's not just us, justice"
Guess she got a little careless with cadaver eleven
Before she'll go to jail yeah she'd rather go to Heaven
And the final leap of faith of a zealot Jezebel
Led'em digging to the bottom of a dead wishing well

A woman's work is never done
A woman's work is never done
Never, when she's a loaded gun, loaded gun
Never done, never when she's a loaded gun, loaded gun

A woman's work is never done
A woman's work is never done
Never, when she's a loaded gun, loaded gun
Never done, never when she's a loaded gun, loaded gun

She's a loaded gun
A woman's work, yeah, yeah
Oh, a woman's work
This, this woman's
This woman's work

Good Together (Bucket and Chicken)

You got the bucket, baby
I got the chicken
You got the Smith and Wesson
I got the ammunition
Maybe we could shoot the town
Or sit around finger lickin' yeah

Alone we're not half bad
But we could be a whole lot better
Anybody knows us, knows we're good together
Just a little sliver of sunlight in stormy weather
Like the tear in my beer, we're good together
Good together

You're a pesky little fly
I'm the pink plastic swatter
You're a back seat kinda guy
And I'm the Bishop's daughter
A steamin' jalapeno
Think I need a drink of water

Alone we're not half bad
But we could be a whole lot better
Anybody knows us, knows we're good together
Just a little sliver of sunlight in stormy weather
Like a tear in my beer, we're good together
Good together

Let's have a little mixer, a little pick er upper
And all night, hold me tight, candlelight supper
No daddy, no mama, no sister, no brother
Its just you and me, a pod and a pea,
We compliment each other
Oh yeah, we're good together

Come on baby
Turn me on
I'll turn up the radio
Beneath the velvet Elvis
We can dance just like Jessco
Twirl me like a trailer park in a tornado

Alone we're not half bad
But we could be a whole lot better
Anybody knows us, knows we're good together
Just a little sliver of sunlight in stormy weather
Like a tear in my beer, we're good together
Good together
Good together

He's A Hero

He's a young man
In his golden years
His hair of black now quickly fades to gray
The limp as he walks is his only souvenir
From those purple-hearted war time days

But you don't hear him complain
No matter how the fall
I don't have a lot, he'd smile and say
But lord I have it all
He's a hero
In my mother's eyes
He taught her how to raise me right
And never compromise
He always says he has
The finer things in life
Somewhere to live, someone to love
And the Good book to live by

Some say his heart is big
Although his fortune's small
I don't have a lot, he'd smile and say
But lord I have it all

A Rembrandt in his own right
A master at his craft
Creating something beautiful
A memory that will last
And always last

He's the constant
In our family
Beginning this long line of love
We've cared
Oh and even when he's gone he'll watch over me
When I close my eyes at night I feel him there

Wear my name well my child
Be true and stand tall
You don't have a lot he'd always say
But lord you have it all oh
You don't have a lot he'd always say
But thank the Lord you have it all
Hero in my mother's eyes
