All of Y’all All of y’all are crazy Some of y’all are fools None of y’all don’t know nothin’ at all about living under the rules All of y’all are misfits Misunderstood at best All of y’all are nothin’ at all just different than all of the rest All of y’all got issues In everything you say and do All of y’all got big ideas that are understood by only you All of y’all are crazy But the rest of us are too All of y’all are my favorites of all ‘cause you’re living under the blues There’s a little touch of madness In everything you say and do An extra touch of sadness that is understood by only you All of y’all are crazy But the rest of us are too All of y’all are my favorites of all ‘cause you’re living under the blues

Nobody’s doing it right Whenever the moon shines full The river runs crazy with the tides’ pull I don’t know if the moon is to blame When lovers run crazy in suspicion and shame I don’t know who’s lovin’ who tonight Nobody’s doing it right I don’t really care who’s lovin’ who tonight I had a little girl but i put her through hell I tried and i failed to love her well Bayou girl from the outskirts of town Where the marsh meets the river when the sun goes down I don’t know who’s lovin’ her tonight I only hope they’re doing it right I can only hope someone’s lovin’ her tonight I recall when you left for the shore I won’t wear that black suit to the party anymore It hurts when it hits like a fist You’re living your life like i never existed I don’t know who’s lovin’ you tonight I only know i never learned to do it right I don’t really want to know who’s lovin’ you tonight

Slip Away 03:04
Slip Away Every day is a daydream Every morning is a chance to be free again Every moment is a lifetime Don’t you let it slip away Don’t you let it slip away Every dawn is a whisper Every life is a song Every child is a gift Every lie takes a toll Every laugh is a prayer Every romance is a dance Every moment is a lifetime Don’t you let it slip away Don’t you let it slip away Tomorrow never, ever pulls into the station Yesterday is just a faded kodachrome We’re only here for a moment and a daydream Then it’s time to head on home Hear those children out there laughing in the sun? In their eyes you’ll find the road map to your heart In your heart you’ll hear the message: Don’t you let it slip away Don’t you let it slip away All hellos meet goodbyes ‘round the corner Here today, gone tomorrow so they say It’s all over in a minute Don’t you let it slip away Don’t you let it slip away

You’ll Get Through It You’ll get through it x2 You’re feelin’ down and out But don’t you ever doubt You’ll get through it Life has dealt you some heavy, heavy blues You’re not the only one but it’s still no fun being you Open up your heart and let the LIGHT in Healing is just a heartbeat away You’ll get through it x2 Feels like you’re gonna die Just go ahead and cry You’ll get through it You’re not alone with all your troubles I’ve been lost in the darkness too my friend The sun is gonna shine on you tomorrow And all this darkness will end You’ll get through it x2 You’re feelin’ down and out But don’t you ever doubt You’ll get through it We’ll get through it x2 Heart to heart, soul to soul We’ll get through it (Lost verse – not recorded) Seems like the heartache never ends And you’re tired of leanin’ so hard on all your friends All I ask of you is just a smile And I’ll be right there with you ‘til the end

Baton Rouge Baby She brings it hot and sweet, such a treat She got long shiny hair and bells on your feet She got a laugh in her eyes and love on her lips Skin like honey and a curve in her hips The blues get the slip when she makes that trip And my Baton Rouge baby come down to New Orleans She got a heart o’ gold, sweet, sweet soul Can’t get enough of that rock n’ roll She love to dance all night to the morning light Don’t like to fuss, don’t like to fight My heart skips a beat when she hits my street And my Baton Rouge baby come down to New Orleans Solo She calls me late at night with a warm invite Says, “Honey, everything is gonna be all right.” She tastes like cherry wine all of the time Fresh as the fruit straight off of the vine I get a mile of smiles from them 81 miles When my Baton Rouge baby come down to New Orleans Solo She brings me grits in the morning, sweet tea at one Says, “Sugar, hold the phone, we gonna have some fun.” She love me all day long straight into the night Ain’t nothin’ wrong if it feels that right. She puts a dip in my hip when she makes that trip And my Baton Rouge baby come down to New Orleans She keeps me cool in the summer, hot in the fall I ain’t rich but she can have it all She smells like honeydew, I swear it’s true Sweet southern mama right through and through She puts a glide in my stride when she makes that ride. And my Baton Rouge baby come down to New Orleans

Ahnalee 03:25
Ahnalee Early Sunday morning, I saw you at the station Not a word was spoken, the steam began to rise The steel horses rumbled, conductor sang his song You grabbed your bags and stepped up I never felt so all alone I could see you there in the window, pretty as an angel Heading for tomorrow on rails that reach the sky Through wheat fields and moonbeams, rivers and trees To a love that last forever And dreams I’d never see Ahnalee, you gave me your heart I gave you a promise of sorrow Can you see? The love that we shared will follow you straight to tomorrow Ahnalee Sometimes in the evening, the shadows get soft and long I can feel you in the moonlight, hear you in my song You’re smile is in my garden, you’re laughter’s on the breeze I whisper, “Please forgive me.” You say you’ll never leave Ahnalee

The Road Ain’t Easy The road ain’t easy White lines come at you so fast You’re next gig is your only future Last one’s your only past You ride those lonely highways Lookin’ for a dream or a song Another rhyme for another dime A melody that you can call your own Singing ahooooo Moonlight peaks through the window Of your roadside piece of a home Your guitar lies waiting patiently Outside the highway moans So you hold her And you love her And she whispers a sweet melody She swears she’ll never give to another Singing ahooooo You miss the moonlight on the bayou Gaslights twinklin’ on a starry night Your baby’s alone Calls you on the telephone Come on home, babe Ooh! I need you to hold me tight You dance your dance for the strangers Leave ‘em all smiling again You saddle-up and you head on down That road that never seems to end Singing oooh

You’re Killing Me I’m not talking about Charlotte Corday I’m not talking about Sqeaky Fromme I don’t care what Lizzie Borden did with the axe When she sent her daddy home I’m talking about you. You’re killing me I love to hear your voice on the late night telephone Full of hope and love and sleep I think about you even when I need to be alone And when i pray for our souls to keep I can picture your face as you open the door If this is love then let me have some more I don’t care about treacherous women Like the biblical Salome Or if Catherine the great died riding her horse Or was it the other way I care about you. You’re killing me I’m talking about you. You’re killing me I like to see you walking from across the street Wearing clothes that are older than you are Or watching you move your head and your feet While the band’s playing “hallelujah” Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah I can’t wait to see your face as you open the door If this is love please let me have a little more I’m not talking about Squeaky Fromme Or those other crazy Manson chicks Or fatal attraction or natural born killers Where the kids were just in it for kicks I’m talking about you. You’re killing me It’s all about you. You’re killing me. And the band’s playing “hallelujah” Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

The Willow 03:41
The Willow The Willow bends with ease When God sends down a gentle breeze I’m living half a foot from the high water line If I’m worth a nickel, I’m worth a dime A single cell, one organism I work by hand with no mechanism And though my hands and fingers be adept My heart knows mysteries I must just accept The egret in the trees Under the late night Pleiades Is searching for his mate at the pairing-time If I am worth a nickel, I’m worth a dime The light refracting through a prism Colored and bent as an old man’s idealism I watched the room grow gold as the sunrise crept Into a mystery I must just accept The willow bends and sways From now until the end of days, And should the rainbow sign bring the fire next time. If I am worth a nickel, I am worth a dime. I’m living half a foot from the high water line If I’m worth a nickel, I’m worth a dime

Bayou de Chat Noir In the town of Bayou de Chat Noir in south Louisiana Is a roadhouse with musicians with guitar and lap piano They used to rock the house with a powerful big band But now all they do is sit around, and their bar tabs are out of hand Down in Bayou de Chat Noir, it’s gotten slower than a dying man The town of Bayou de Chat Noir was wild during the oil boom The place was full of money; it was hotter than a boiler room Musicians played for tips until their pockets overflowed From the roughnecks to the gamblers in their brand new Italian clothes Down in bayou de chats noir, it was wild, everybody knows In the roadhouse until dawn, almost every single night The band played on and on, singing songs like: “That’s Alright”, “Allons a Lafayette”, “Let The Good Times Roll” “Fais Deaux Deaux”, ahhh “Jolie Blon”, “That’s Alright” When the bayou was jumpin’ the musicians played and sang The whole town was thumping to a telecaster’s twang And as long as the bayou was singin’ that boomtown song You could hear the fiddle wail with guitar and accordion In the town of Bayou de Chat Noir, the oil refinery shut on down Most of the musicians have finally headed out of town The club still opens up, but it’s empty every night But the guitar and accordion usually sound alright Down in Bayou de Chat Noir, it’s gotten slower than a dying man In the roadhouse until dawn, almost every single night The band plays on and on, singing songs like: “That’s Alright”, “Thank You, John”, “Tear Stained Letter” and “Jolie Blon”, “Old Back Door”, “Grand Mamou”, “Sea Of Love” and “Blueberry Hill” “Fais Deau Deau”, “Let The Good Times Roll”, “That’s Alright”.
