TRACK LISTING

  • Who’ll buy my wheat, who’ll buy my corn

    To feed my babies when they’re born

    Seeds and dirt, a prayer for rain, that I can use

    I work the land, I watch the sky

    I talk to God and wonder why

    But it’s the only life I’ve known, these farmer’s blues

    I see the seasons come and go

    Sendin’ rain, fire and snow

    I’m at the mercy, of it all, this life I choose

    Sometimes I hang my head and cry

    When that evenin’ train goes by

    Wish it could take me far away, these farmer’s blues

    The tractor’s old, the fence is down

    Put on my suit and go to town

    Ask for a loan, that I know well, they might refuse

    Back at home, still by my side

    The one I love, with worried eyes

    Waits for me, to love away, these farmer’s blues

    I see the seasons come and go

    Sending rain, fire and snow

    I’m at the mercy, of it all, this life I choose

    Sometimes I hang my head and cry

    As that evenin’ train goes by

    Wish it could take me far away, these farmer’s blues

  • On this old rock pile, with a ball and chain

    They call me by a number not a name, Lord Lord

    I’ve gotta do my time, I’ve gotta do my time

    With an achin’ heart and a worried mind

    When that old judge, looked down and smiled

    Said I’ll put you up that river for a while Lord Lord

    I’ve gotta do my time, I’ve gotta do my time

    With an achin’ heart and a worried mind

    You can hear my hammer, you can hear my song

    Gonna swing it like John Henry all day long, Lord Lord

    I gotta do my time, I gotta my time

    With an achin’ heart and a worried mind

    Well now it won’t be long, just a few more days

    I’ll settle down and quit my rowdy ways, Lord Lord

    With that gal of mine, yeah with that gal of mine

    She’s a waiting for me, while I’ve done my time

  • There was a time I could drink my cares away

    And drown out all of the heartaches that hurt me night and day

    When the thought of you came crashing through, I’d have one more

    But now the whiskey ain’t workin’ anymore

    I need one good honky-tonk angel to turn my life around

    That’s reason enough for me to lay this ole bottle down

    A woman warm and willin’, that’s what I’m lookin’ for

    ‘Cause the whiskey ain’t workin’ anymore

    They knew my name in every bar in town

    And they knew all of the reasons why I was comin’ round, round, round

    Cause in my mind, peace I’d find, when they’d start to pour

    But now the whiskey ain’t workin’ anymore

    I need one good honky-tonk angel to turn my life around

    That’s reason enough for me to lay this ole bottle down

    A woman warm and willin’, that’s what I’m lookin’ for

    ‘Cause the whiskey ain’t workin’ anymore

    Lord the whiskey ain’t workin’ anymore

    That’s for sure

  • Just outside these prison bars, the hanging tree is waiting
At sunrise I’ll meet darkness, and death will way hello

    Darlin; put your lips to mine and tell me that you love me
And hold me close again before you go

    Will you visit me on Sunday, will you bring me pretty flowers
Will your big blue eyes be misty, will you brush away a tear

    A grave is filled with silence but if a sleeping man could hear
Darlin’, you’d hear my footsteps up there

    Promise me that time won’t separate me from your memory
And I’ll remember you until the days of silver hair

    If not for you, I know I’d lose my mind before the morning
So hold me close and tell me, that you care.

    Will you visit me on Sunday, will you bring me pretty flowers
Will your big blue eyes be misty, will you brush away a tear

    A grave is filled with silence but if a sleeping man could hear
Darlin’, you’d hear my footsteps up there.

    Will you visit me on Sunday, will you bring me pretty flowers
Will your big blue eyes be misty, will you brush away a tear

  • Crying, waiting, hoping, you’ll come back

    I just can’t seem to get you off my mind

    Crying, waiting, hoping, you’ll come back

    You’re the one I love and I think about you all the time

    Crying, my tears keep falling all night long

    Waiting, it feels so useless I know it’s wrong

    To keep crying, waiting, hoping, you’ll come back

    Maybe some day soon things will change and you’ll be mine

    Crying, my tears keep falling all night long

    Waiting, it feels so useless I know it’s wrong

    To keep crying, waiting, hoping, you’ll come back

    Maybe some day soon things will change and you’ll be mine

    Crying, waiting, hoping, you’ll come back

    Maybe some day soon things will change and you’ll be mine

    Crying, waiting, hoping

  • Like a rolling river, we keep on and on

    Sometimes just the two of us

    Out there on our own

    Through the fire, through the storm

    We’ll be safe here inside each other’s arms

    Hearts like ours, strong and true

    So in love, that’s me and you

    Tender words, sweet desire

    True love songs still belong

    To hearts like ours

    Out in forever, high above the stars

    Love is shining down on us

    Right here where we are

    For the world to plainly see

    Every day, just the way

    True love can be

    Hearts like ours, strong and true

    So in love, that’s me and you

    Tender words, sweet desire

    True love songs still belong

    To hearts like ours

    True love songs still belong

    To hearts like ours

  • I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin’ ’bout half past dead

    I just need some place, where I can lay my head

    Hey Mister can ya tell me, where a man might find a bed

    He just grinned, and shook my hand, and ‘no’ was all he said

    Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

    Take a load off Fanny, and, (and), (and)

    You put the load, (put the load), right on me

    I picked up my bags, went a-lookin’ for a place to hide

    When I saw poor Carmen and the Devil, walkin’ side by side

    I said ‘a-hey Carmen, come on let’s go downtown’

    She said, ‘I gotta go, but my friend can stick around’

    Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

    Take a load off Fanny, and, (and), (and)

    You put the load, (put the load), right on me

    Go down Moses, there ain’t nothin’ that a-you can’t say

    It’s just ol’ Luke, and Luke is waiting on the judgment day

    Well Luke my friend, what about young Anna Lee

    He said ‘do me a favor son, won’t you stay and keep Anna Lee company’

    Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

    Take a load off Fanny, and, (and), (and)

    You put the load, (put the load), right on me

    Catch a Cannonball now to take me on down the line

    My bag is sinkin’ low, and I do believe it’s time

    Get back to Miss Fanny, you know she’s the only one

    Who sent me here with her regards for everyone

    Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

    Take a load off Fanny, and, (and), (and)

    You put the load, (put the load), right on me

  • There’s a home, high up in heaven, where with saints I’ll ever dwell

    When the road of life has ended, then I’ll bid this world farewell

    There’s no weary ones in heaven, only gladness will be known

    Sinner come accept my Savior, let us travel, travel on

    I must give my heart to Jesus, turned away from sin and shame

    In that book of life in heaven, God has written down my name

    There’s no weary ones in heaven, only gladness will be known

    Sinner come accept my Savior, let us travel, travel on

    When this weary life is over, and when saints are marching home

    Will your soul be free from sorrow, or instead be ye unknown

    There’s no weary ones in heaven, only gladness will be known

    Sinner come accept my Savior, let us travel, travel on
