Tracklist

One Dance With You

length: 2:59

Oh baby when you came walkin' in
I went crazy wonderin' where you been
I think maybe I just fell in love again

She ain't no Peggy Sue, sweet Mary Lou
She ain't no Maybeline, pretty miss Norma Jean
But I'd give up everything
For just one dance with you

Oh baby I sure like the way you move
I go crazy when you shake that thing the way you do
You think maybe I could have a dance with you

She ain't no Peggy Sue, sweet Mary Lou
She ain't no Maybeline, pretty miss Norma Jean
But I'd give up everything
For just one dance with you

She ain't no Peggy Sue, sweet Mary Lou
She ain't no Maybeline, pretty miss Norma Jean
But I'd give up everything
For just one dance with you

High Lonesome Sound

length: 3:26
Whenever my soul is lonely
Whenever I'm feeling blue
I start thinkin' 'bout my blue eyed darlin'
And my heart starts pinin' for you

[Chorus]
I want to hear that high lonesome sound
Cause my sweet baby ain't around
When my life's got me down
I want to hear that high lonesome sound

When I'm lost in this ocean of darkness
Not knowing which way I should turn
And my eyes are filled with sadness
Of knowing you'll never return

Pretty Little Adriana

length: 3:48
You sure have a pretty smile
It sure has been a while
Since I've felt your touch
You've got the sweetest way
I think about you every day
I miss you so much

[Chorus]
Oh my pretty little Adriana
Are you lonesome tonight
Oh my pretty little Adriana
I'll find you when it all feels right

You're so soft and innocent
The sweetest night I ever spent
Was being held in your embrace
You're such a gentle soul
It's killing me to know
When will I see your face

A Little More Love

length: 3:08
We both went a little crazy
We both did each other wrong
Don't think it's too late baby
Don't think that all hope is gone

[Chorus]
We need a little more love
To get us through the night
Just a little more love
And we'll be all right

It'd be easy to say it doesn't matter
To walk away and wish you the best
But I know we'd feel a whole lot better
If we tried a little tenderness

Let's put our differences aside
We can make it baby you and I
Let's give it just one more try
We can't let this thing die

Down to New Orleans

length: 4:17
Hey Creole Darlin'
Talk that French to me
You know your love is somethin'
Like I ain't never seen
I'm goin' down, down, down, down to New Orleans

Your eyes shine line diamonds
And those kisses sure make me scream
There ain't nothin' like love on the bayou
Honey I know you know what I mean
I'm goin' down, down, down, down to New Orleans
I'm goin' down, down, down, down to New Orleans

They got the gumbo and the Creole
They got the Quarter all night long
I got my Delta Queen that makes my heart sing
Man I ain't never goin' home
I'm goin' down, down, down, down to New Orleans

Tell Me Lover

length: 4:04
Tell me lover, tell me what you're gonna do
You gonna walk the walk or just talk the talk
Honey, what's up with you

Tell me lover, tell me how it's gonna be
You gonna mess around or just turn me down
Honey, won't you please tell me

Your good intentions ain't too good no more
You answer questions by slammin' that bedroom door
Come on baby let's turn the lamp down low
I'll solve your problems so honey please don't go

If the silence could kiill, honey we'd both be dead
It ain't hard to tell we're hangin' on by a thread
Say somethin' darlin' say what's on your mind
We'll find the answer, I got nothin' but time

Given More Time

length: 3:59
It's been a long day, Tell me how you've been
Sorry it's so late, But here we go again
We're sitting here together
Your hand in mine I could stay here forever
Given more time

Given more time to laugh and dance
Give more time to have the chance
To show you this where, I want to be
But that old clock up on the wall
It don't even care at all
Lord I wish I was given more time
For you and me

Honey how was your day
Did you spend it on the run
I know the kids are okay
Thanks for getting things done
In a few more hours, The sun's gonna shine
I wish I had the power, To be given more time

You and You Alone

length: 3:28
If we have to wait forever that's all right
If you say let's run away we'll leave tonight
I'll do anything you ever ask me to
Girl the reason my heart's beating is for you
And you alone

There's a price you pay for every choice you make
We'll have our day no matter what it takes
I'll be there for you whatever we go through
Girl the reason life's worth living is for you
And you alone

Oh you and you alone are with me from now on
Even if I never see your face again
The love that you have shown is unlike anything I've known
We both know its just a matter of when

I wish that we could just turn back the hands of time
To find a way to have your world fit into mine
I'll keep dreaming that some day it all comes true
Girl the reason my heart's breaking is for you
And you alone

Worlds Apart

length: 5:44
There's nothing quite as lonely
As a sky that turns to gray
Or a love that just starts dyin'
And slowly fades away

You werre my best companion
Now we lie silent in the dark
Why do you and me have to be worlds apart

There's nothing quite as empty
As when children go away
And all that's left are memories
Of all those yesterdays

You can't understand the feeling
'Til it finds its way to your heart
Why do you and me have to be worlds apart

There's nothing quite as ugly
As two people full of hate
We'll all end up as equals
When we stand at heaven's gate

Love is still the answer
It's the only place to start
Why do you and me have to be worlds apart

Jenny Dreamed of Trains

length: 5:21
When Jenny was a little girl she only dreamed of trains
She never played with dolls or lacy kinds of things
Jenny counted boxcars instead of countin' sheep
She could go anywhere when she went to sleep

All she ever talked about was gettin' on to ride
She was livin' in another time you could see it in her eyes
Everyday after school she'd head don't to the tracks
Waitin' for the train that was never comin' back

Jenny dreamed of trains
When the nighttime came
Nobody knew how she made it come true
Jenny dreamed of trains

The depot's been boarded up, the rails have turned to rust
There hasn't been a train through here since the mill went bust
No one believed her when she said she heard the train
Said she was just a little girl actin' kinda strange

Jenny dreamed of trains
When the nighttime came
Nobody knew how she made it come true
Jenny dreamed of trains

Jenny laid a penny on the track one day
In God we trust she walked away
The very next mornin' all that she could find
Was a little piece of copper squashed flatter than a dime

Nobody knew how she made it come true
Jenny dreamed of trains

High Lonesome Sound

length: 3:07
guest performer: Alison Krauss & Union Station
Whenever my soul is lonely
Whenever I'm feeling blue
I start thinkin' 'bout my blue eyed darlin'
And my heart starts pinin' for you

[Chorus]
I want to hear that high lonesome sound
Cause my sweet baby ain't around
When my life's got me down
I want to hear that high lonesome sound

When I'm lost in this ocean of darkness
Not knowing which way I should turn
And my eyes are filled with sadness
Of knowing you'll never return
