Fishin’ in the Dark

length: 3:43

Lazy yellow moon coming up tonight
Shining through the trees
Crickets are singing and lightning bugs
Are floating on the breeze
Baby, get ready

Cross the field where the creek turns back
By the old stump road
I'm gonna take you to a special place
That nobody knows
Baby, get ready

(chorus)
You and me going fishin' in the dark
Lying on our backs and counting the stars
Where the cool grass grows
Down by the river in the ole moonlight
We'll be falling in love in the middle of the night
Just moving slow
Spend the whole night through
Feels so good to be with you

Spring is almost over and the summer's coming
The days are getting long
I've waited all winter for the time to be right
Just to take you along
Baby, get ready

And it don't matter if we sit forever
And the fish don't bite
We'll jump in the river and cool ourselves
From the heat of the night
Baby, get ready

(Repeat Chorus Out)

That Girl Is a Cowboy

length: 4:23
It was a hundred and seven
We were heading to town
She had her sleeves rolled up
And the windows rolled down
That girl is a cowboy
Robert Earl was singing out
The "Buckin' Song"
With every word that Keen was bringing
She was singing along
That girl is a cowboy

(chorus)
Sometimes the best cowboys
Ain't cowboys at all
She's got my back
Even when it's against the wall
When I need a friend
She's the guy I call
'Cause sometimes the best cowboys
Ain't cowboys at all

So I took her out to show her
How to rope and ride
I can't believe that it was me
That wound up broke and tied
That girl is a cowboy

So that night I decided
We should paint the town
I made it home although
I really don't remember how
That girl is a cowboy

(Repeat Chorus)

There's just something that a cowgirl has
Ain't no cowboys got
Man she's something when she's one of the boys
But something else
Any time she's not

(Repeat Chorus)

Good Ride Cowboy

length: 3:26
From the hills of Kaycee, Wyoming,
Where life's wooly and wild
Came a Navy brat, In a cowboy hat
And that Copenhagen smile

And from buckin' broncs to honky tonks
He always sang a cowboy song
We were much to young, Having too much fun
As we all sang along

And we sang Life's a Highway
There's only one way you're gonna get through it
When she starts to twist, be more like Chris
Pull your hat down tight, and just LeDoux it
When that whistle blows, and the crowd explodes
And them pickup-men are at your side
They tell you "Good ride, cowboy, good ride."

(Take a ride)

Well gold buckles to gold records
Once again he was spinnin' round
Took the whole world on, And he turned us on
To that Western underground

And from bareback jack to this cowboy's hat
The songs were stronger than his pain
He would not slow down, From town to town
Like children running through the rain

And he sang Life's a Highway
There's only one way you're gonna get through it
When she starts to twist, be more like Chris
Pull your hat down tight, and just LeDoux it
When that whistle blows, and that crowd explodes
And them pickup-men are at your side
They tell you "Good ride, cowboy, good ride."

We sang Life's a Highway
There's only one way you're gonna get through it (yeah!)
When she starts to twist, be more like Chris
Pull your hat down tight ("let me have it!"), and just LeDoux it
When that whistle blows, and that crowd explodes
And them pickup-men are at your side
They tell you "Good ride, cowboy, good ride."

Then he crossed that River Jordan
With St. Peter on the other side
Singin' "Good ride, cowboy, good ride"
Say "Good ride, cowboy, good ride!"

For a Minute There

length: 5:15
We were walking 'long the ocean
Together hand in hand
When I stopped to write "I love you" in the sand
And when I looked up you were standing
Ten miles out at sea
And in a sweat
I woke up from that crazy dream
As I reached to hold you in the morning light
It was just your pillow
I clung to so tight

(chorus)
For a minute there
I thought it was you
For a minute there
My prayers had finally come true
For a minute there
I began again to live
What I wouldn't give
For just a minute there

Five o'clock on Friday
Sitting at a light
When this angel walked right by me
On my right
And the cars all started honking
As my feet hit the ground
And though I chased and called
You never turned around
Oh the walk, the hair, the perfume
Where the same
How I wished she would have answered
To your name

(Repeat Chorus)

Tonight the stars in heaven
Are bright as they can be
And I swear one of them
Is winking down at me

(Repeat Chorus)

What I wouldn't give
How I'd love to live
For just a minute there

Please Operator (Could You Trace This Call)

length: 3:42
[Chorus]
Please operator could you trace this call
Find out where I'm drinking
Which dirty beer hall
And send a cab driver to call for me here
No need to describe me
'Cause I ain't all here

She told me to get lost
And that's what I did
But I've done it so well
I don't know where I hid
And she swore that she never will see me again
Hell I'll never find me
In the shape that I'm in

[Chorus]

Now I had to ask myself
If I were me
And I was out drinking
Well where would I be
Then I thumb nailed the label
And there I appeared
Hiding out in a bottle
Behind a three-day old beard

[Chorus]

Well I may be lonely
But I'm never alone
Cause I've been beside myself
Since she's been gone

Oh, please operator could you trace this call
Find out where I'm drinking
Which dirty beer hall
And send a cab driver to call for me here
And if he can find me
I'll buy him a beer

Please operator could you trace this call
Find out where I'm drinking
Which filthy beer hall
And send a cab driver to call for me here
I'll be beside myself
Pouring down beer

I’d Rather Have Nothing

length: 3:44
Jumped in the truck and headed for Kansas
Morning found me in Port Aranas
Sipping on rum
In that warm Texas sun
I've never been good at keeping direction
And i believe schedules are one of life's worst inflections
And i gotta be free
'Cause I'd rather nothing
Than a whole lot of something I don't need

I'd rather have nothing
Than a whole lot of something
That don't fit the life that i lead
material things and all that wealth brings
just must be for some other breed
'cause life ain't about the worries and doubts
That comes with the lust and the greed
and i'd rather have nothing
that a whole lot of something we don't need

I spent that evening in a tavern in town
with a bunch of my new friends my money brought 'round
and i told them 'bout you
and all the hell we'd been through
everyone there had a similar story
years full of tears from all the heartache and worry
and we all agreed
that we'd rather have nothing
than a whole lot of something we don't need

i'd rather have nothing
than a whole of something
that don't fit the life that i lead
commintments and strings and all that love brings
just must be for some other breed
'cause life ain't about the worries and doubts
that comes wtih the lust and the greed
and i'd rather have nothing
than a whole lot of something i don't need

0h, i'd thater have nothing
than a whole lot of someting i don't need

American Dream

length: 1:52
And the oil fields fed our family
'Neath the amber waves of grain
God, He was our savior
Though his name was spoke in vain

My dad would leave for work each morning
In the twilight's last gleaming
'Cause every day I'd awaken
To the American dream

I’ll Be the Wind

length: 4:04
You let him lock you away in his prison of sadness
It's up to you to decide where tomorrow will lead
If it's time to be leaving your burdens behind
I could be just what you need

{Chorus:]
I'll be the wind
I'll be the highway
I'll be your midnight friend
And we'll fly away
When you come across the courage
To spread your wings again
I'll be the wind

I can't imagine the gypsy that you were before him
Carefree and wild a spirited child of the road
Lately girl you've been wearing the weight of the world
And I'd like to lighten your load

{Chorus]
I'll be the wind
I'll be the highway
I'll be your midnight friend
And we'll fly away
When you come across the courage
To spread your wings again
I'll be the wind

If it's time to be leaving your burdens behind
I could be just what you need

{Chorus]
I'll be the wind
I'll be the highway
I'll be your midnight friend
And we'll fly away
When you come across the courage
To spread your wings again
I'll be the wind

My Baby No esta aqui

length: 2:49
She use to be my rosa amarilla
My little Mexicali tomatilla
But then one night I drank too much sangria
Woke up and found a note that said I'll see ya

(Chorus)
Oh, my baby no esta aqui no more
My baby no esta aqui no more
She left me here with nada
Broke my heart like a pinata
My baby no esta aqui no more

Whoa, whoa, whoa, if you see her
Please, please tell her that I need her

I used to be her number one vaquero
Her numero uno caballero
But I've had to hock my spurs and my sombrero
'Cause when she left she took all my dinero

(Repeat Chorus)

Whoa, whoa, whoa, if you see her
Please, please tell her that I need her

Oh, my baby no esta aqui no more
My baby no esta aqui no more
she left me here with nada
Broke my heart like a pinata
My baby no esta aqui
My baby no esta aqui
My baby no esta aqui no more

Allison Miranda

length: 5:03
On a two lane north of Casper is where this all begins
Heading back to Oklahoma for a week to visit friends
She was walking 'long the highway so I pulled off to the side
And asked her if she needed a ride

We tore up that ole blacktop 'til we found I-25
And just into Colorado she asked if she could drive
I'd never met nobody like her. I'd never laughed so much
And I grew hungry for her touch

(Chorus)
I used to think of autumn
As sweaters and leaves
And I used to think the night
Was just for dreamers and theives
But that was before she came
Allison Miranda was her name

By the time that we hit Kansas we both felt pretty beat
So we found ourselves a motel and grabbed a bite to eat
We'd rest a few short hours; soon we'd be out of there
Three days later we came up for air

(Repeat Chorus)

Now I can't forget the morning when I woke alone in bed
To a rose left on her pillow and a good-bye note that read
You cannot grow a flower if you do not have the seed
Now I've got everything I need

(Repeat Chorus)

Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream

length: 3:31
[Chorus]
Last night I had the strangest dream
I ever dreamed before
'Cause I dreamed the world
Had all agreed to put an end to war

I dreamed I saw a mighty room
Filled with women and men
And the papers they were signing said
They'd never fight again

And when the papers were all signed
And a million copies made
They all joined hands and they bowed their heads
And grateful prayers were prayed

And the people in the streets below
Were dancing 'round and 'round
And swords and guns and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground

[Chorus]
