Track Name: Tell Me Everything
Tell Me Everything

It’s been a long time now
since I heard you call my name
It’s been a long time now
since I heard you call my name
And I’ve been thinking, its time for a change
Yeah I’ve been thinking, its time for a change
Tell me now, tell me everything

Tomorrow is a long long time
Tonite I’d like to cross that sweet fine line
Everything it seems is not enough
Everything it seems is turning to dust
Tell me now, tell me everything
Tell me now, tell me everything

Instrumental bridge

Let the sky grow dark, the day will come again
Even you and I will change my friend
The sky will grow dark; the day will come again
Everything changes in the end
Tell me now, tell me everything x3
Track Name: Natural Man
Natural Man

I am a natural man
nothing more and nothing less
tell me now, why I can’t be free

On this mighty land
where armies stand to defend
the freedom you’d try to sell me
Don’t want Blackwater on our streets
or corporate bankers between my sheets
Ain’t gonna worship in your house of greed

It’s time to rise up
time to make a stand
time to defend life and land
Before natural law
judge you and me

I am a natural man
born here on this land
and I ain’t your corporate entity
Emancipate me right now
set free the slaves you house
time has come For your cards to fall
Don't want your drones in my sky
or you trying to regulate my high
aint gonna worship in your house of lies

Time to rise up, make a stand
time to defend, life and land
before the natural law, judge you and I

I am a natural man
born here on this land
and I ain’t your corporate entity
Emancipate me right now
set free the slaves you house
time has come For your cards to fall
Don't want Monsanto in my seed
or chem trails raining down on me
ain't gonna vote for your house of greed

It’s time to rise up, make a stand,
time to defend life and land
Before natural law, judge you and me
Track Name: See Me Coming
See Me Coming

Can we push through, to the morning light
Will I wake with you, everything will be all right
I know where you’ll be, sweet thing tender and free
I know where you’ll be, flame red hair
and in my dreams

Chorus:
Can you see me comin,
Down that line
Can you see me comin,
Walking home in the pale moon light
Can you see me comin,
Down that line
Can you see me comin,
Walking home in the pale moon light

I know right from wrong
and I know how to tell the truth
I know what I’m doing
coming on back home to you

Chorus

I’m gonna marry you
tell all your friends its true
I’m gonna marry you
tell your ma and pa too
You got a hold on me
I’m gonna tie you down
Got me a golden ring
and a white wedding gown

Chorus
Track Name: Even Coyote Sings The Blues
Even Coyote Sings The Blues

Give me a taste, of your sweet sweet love
Slap me in my face, don’t we fit like a glove
I’ve no tricks for you, give me just one night
And if we ain’t true, I’ll leave without a fight

Well come on now, chase away my blues
Let me rest these old, walking shoes
Grant me some time, show you what I mean
You can check me close, nothing up my sleeve

Chorus:
Don’t leave me here I always find myself alone
If you listened in the dark and thought you mighta heard me moan
I was howling at the moon and calling to them stars above
Crying out the blues, and calling babe, for some love

I’m a coyote so, you should know right now
Born a trickster babe, both free and wild
And I’m asking you, can you tell me true
Are you a trickster babe, can you cure the coyote blues

Chorus:
Because I can leave you here if what you like is being alone
I listened in the dark, and thought I might’ve heard you moan
Were you howling at the moon and calling to them stars above
Were you crying the blues and calling for some love
I’m a trickster babe…
Track Name: Fairview Park
Fairview Park

Skies were gray and the rain came down
made my way across the dirty old town
home to Fairview park and you

You let a little room at the top of a stairs
I liked to come and linger there
you always had a fine word for me

And I remember every word you ever said
And I remember all the nights rain a comin down
Lord willing and the creek don’t rise
I’ll be there right by your side

You were doe eyed in the big wide world
I was jaded with a heart grown cold
but we found each other in the moments that we stole

We’d lock into Gaffney’s at half ten
Drink and talk like long lost friends
Stumble home together, Sun coming up

I remember every word we ever said
I remember all them nights rain a comin down
Lord wiling and the creek don’t rise
I’ll be there right by your side

Times were good, but not meant to be
We were honest fools we couldn’t see
The coming edge, only the clear blue sky

memories are a funny thing
can haunt you or feel like coming spring
When I turned the page I lost my place with you

but I remember the last words that I said
and I remember all the nights rain a comin down
Lord willing and the creek don’t rise
I’ll be there right by your side (x2)
Track Name: Red Bird Calling
RED BIRD CALLING

There’s a red bird calling, singing her song for me
There’s a red bird calling, her song won’t let me be

Found myself in the valley, carrying me a heavy load
Saw a light shining down, from on high to down below
Heard a red bird calling, singing her song for me
Was a red bird calling, her song won’t give me peace

So I’m going up on the mountain, see what I can see
Gonna lay my burden down, and I will be set free
There’s a red bird calling, singing her song for me
There’s red bird calling, her song won’t let me be

Well the bluebird crossed my path
And the blackbird cries in the dying of the day
the white bird gonna carry me home
But the red bird calls my name

Hear the red bird calling, singing her song for me
There’s a red bird calling, her song gonna set me free
Set me free, set me free, set me free, set me free
Red bird calling, gonna set me free, red bird calling
Track Name: I Am The Poison
I Am The Poison

I am the poison
You drink before dawn
You are the person
to whom I belong
Be my saving grace
I’ll be your hiding place

I remember you
whispering to me
‘neath the silver moon
the secrets you keep
In your night eyes
there was, No disguise

Bridge:
Maybe we aren’t meant to be
No matter how I feel
A million miles between us now
And still, You’re all that’s real

Now there is a place
between sleep and awake
Where you remember dreams
And that’s where I’ll wait
And I will be true
and forever
will love you
Track Name: Bill Frazier
Bill Frazier

I first saw Bill Frazier staring up at the moon
With a tear in his eyes, singing a mournful tune
I said hey Bill, where are you bound,
Lets go to the bar, I will buy you a round.

I saw Bill Frazier standing alone
Without a dollar, without a home
I said hey Bill, what can I do
Buy us a bottle, have a drink or two

CH:
Bill Frazier, Bill Frazier, got the face of a baby
Got the heart of a child, and some say maybe
You’ll find all the things that you’ve been looking for
Like a bottle in a brown bag, full ever more

I last saw old Bill, before he left town
I said friend can I buy your last round
I bought one, bought two, then I bought three
There at the bar, Bill Frazier and me

CH:
Bill Frazier, Bill Frazier, got the face of a baby
Got the heart of a child, and someday maybe
You’ll find all the things that you’ve been looking for
Like a bottle in a brown bag, for ever more
Track Name: Pancho and Lefty
See the Townes Van Zandt Original Lyrics
Track Name: 7 Come 11
7 Come 11

7 come 11
we cashed in
All we’d won blown to the wind
I remember those days long ago
I remember those nights, we laid low

sneaking in the back door late at night.
never got caught
played it right
Against the walls of St. Stephens
we rolled the dice.
Praying them bones
would turn up right

BREAK

Now every single night you haunt my dreams
till nothing in this life is like it seems
I wonder now if you remember me
I miss you like salt would miss the sea

BREAK

I wanna go back to the good old days
Roll my way into a brand new game
Dealer deal me in another hand
Bring back those times if you can

Cuz life is a gamble
you take your chance
Put your money down, place your bets
Win some baby lose some they say
but you lay it on the line
see if it pays
7 come 11 and we cashed in
Track Name: Ten From Town (Bonus)
Ten from town

CHORUS:

I love my baby,
I love her like water
She never puts out my fire
well come on darling give me a dollar
I’ll bring you back, ten from town

I am a roving gambler
I gambled all around
where ever I did gamble
My good gal could be found
she told me straight and she told me true
Win some goddamn money boy or I’m through with you

I am a gambling man
that’s what I am
I gambled all over this great big land,
I got a good woman Lord she keeps me clean
if I don’t win money, she gets mighty mean

CHORUS

She told me I was special
that I was unique
I was a challenge Eight days a week
here is a dollar boy, head to town,
If you don’t win ten
don’t come back around

CHORUS
