A nightfall of silver A daybreak of gold May the diamonds in your eyes shine on through the rain and cold Reaching for the future Got one foot in the past Open up this moment ‘cause the present cannot last There’s always a road that leads to a sign Let me feel your heartbeat let me hold your hand in mine There’s always a hope that leads to despair If ever you get lonesome close your eyes and I’ll be there By morning light I will be gone A lifetime of struggle A minute of rest Never claimed to be perfect but I always gave my best May I be forgotten May I go as I came May the river flow my ashes may the wind take my name There’s always a road that leads to a sign Let me feel your heartbeat let me hold your hand in mine There’s always a hope that leads to despair If ever you get lonesome close your eyes and I’ll be there By morning light I will be gone

It’s not a place that you go it’s not a place that you would choose It’s not a place that you go it’s not a place that you would choose You can drown all your sorrow at the bottom of a bottle of booze There ain’t no pretty ladies so I drink until they’re fine There ain’t no pretty ladies so I drink until they’re fine It’s been long hard winter, can’t remember the sun or the shine I got those mountain town blues There’s no more loose Except your pride on a blackjack table Mountain town blues Kick of those shoes Sit back and enjoy the ride, the ride Woke up this morning I was lookin’ for a place to hide Woke up this morning I was lookin’ for a place to hide I blacked out as a bachelor but now I’ve got a new bride You can get real high but the only way to go is down You can get real high but the only way to go is down You could try to leave but you’re always coming back to the town I got those mountain town blues There’s no more loose Except your pride on a blackjack table Mountain town blues Kick of those shoes Sit back and enjoy the ride, the ride

Good days getting shorter, the night goes on and on If there’s any chance of mercy, I’ll be taken before the dawn The desert wind begins to sing an old familiar tune In the window stands the shadow of a crow If you want to show me your love… Just let me go Used to run with the thunder Used to roll like a train Used to dance with the lightning Used to fall like the rain You don’t have to come around here, but if you do Sing to me until the white light comes Sing me into the light Is it too late to beg forgiveness for my rough and tumbling past? Another night, another fight, how long must I last? The devil’s just a wishing well. If there’s a God who listens I can’t tell Misplaced my faith the day I had to leap There are miles and miles to go… before I sleep Used to run with the thunder Used to roll like a train Used to dance with the lightning Used to fall like the rain You don’t have to come around here, but if you do Sing to me until the white light comes Sing me into the light Gonna lay this broken burden on the bank of the riverside Every face a voice without a name I rise to the light as a moth is drawn to a flame Used to run with the thunder Used to roll like a train Used to dance with the lightning Used to fall like the rain You don’t have to come around here, but if you do Sing to me until the white light comes Sing me into the light

So cold in the basement, memories locked away A faded photo in a dusty frame From that fair where you took my name Still feels like yesterday We built this house, with wood and stone Too many tales for the walls to speak The only music is in the floorboards creak Wherever you go, you’re welcome home Summer’s got its bees makin’ honey in the trees In the valley by the old saw mill I could meet you up on Magnolia Hill The ghosts of fall through the church bells call Burning leaves in a moonshine still I could meet you up on Magnolia Hill Never tried to stop it, I couldn’t do what’s right I lost it all, nothing left to chase I only see you in my dreaming space I let you go without a fight Old rocking chair, stop to rest and think I was weak when you were strong Been thirty years since I done you wrong A year to the day since my last drink Summer’s got its bees makin’ honey in the trees In the valley by the old saw mill I could meet you up on Magnolia Hill The ghosts of fall through the church bells call Burning leaves in a moonshine still I could meet you up on Magnolia Hill

The Canyon 05:18
Westbound Travelin’ by moonlight on the highway Four dead Gonna be more if they come my way Three days Running through the desert on my own Two nights Without a fire and freezing to the bone There’s nowhere I can hide tryin’ to get to the other side of the canyon Morning A body dead half buried in the sand Closer His eyes are gone but a watch lays in his hand Twelve noon The desert heat has started to unfold Red sun In the blinding light that body is still cold There’s nowhere I can hide tryin’ to get to the other side of the canyon Voices To the east, no time to stop being brave One leg In the bottom of my own shallow grave Dear Lord I’m finished if they ever catch up to me No trial They’ll string me up and hang me from a tree There’s nowhere I can hide tryin’ to get to the other side of the canyon One gun One bullet left if I have to draw My shot Take my life before giving it to the law There’s nowhere I can hide tryin’ to get to the other side of the canyon

I loved you from the day you came home. I swore I’d never work a nine to five Never thought you could lift me up, make me laugh, make me feel so alive You’re my little angel, always do what I ask Just like a good girl should Alright (alright), I love you (I love you), be good I’m going to love you just as hard as I can. We only get a few short years There will come a day you must go away. The thought of it brings me to tears We went for a walk, found your favorite tree I carved our names in a heart on the wood Alright (alright), I love you (I love you), be good I hear your yelling through the walls as I leave Your curses always come on cue But your love never misses when you shower me with kisses I always come home back to you Your my best girl, you got that pretty smile. You’re just the way that you should be Throughout these years I can tell by your ears you choose when you listen to me And if I was blind, you could still read my mind Would my love for you be understood Alright (alright), I love you (I love you), be good Alright (alright), I love you (I love you), be good Alright (alright), I love you (I love you), be good

If you were a train, I could be your track Don’t need no baggage, just the clothes upon your back If you were an airplane, I would be the air I made up the rules, but I tried to make ‘em fair I’m shape shifter, my skills you could applaud Some like to curse my name or blame it all on God I hit like a ton a bricks, come crashing down one day You can try to go to the river, but I can’t be washed away You can run from the ocean. You can run from the sea You can run on your own two feet, but you can’t run away from me You can run from Colorado. You can run from Tennessee You can run any way you want but you can’t run away from me I’ve been caught in photographs, in pictures sitting on shelves Some try to fool me with cheap disguise, but they only fool themselves Some take a drive to the country to leave me far behind I’ll be here when they get back and I’m always in the back of their mind You can run from the ocean. You can run from the sea You can run on your own two feet, but you can’t run away from me You can run from Colorado. You can run from Tennessee You can run any way you want but you can’t run away from me If anyone is so brave to boast that they’ll get the best of me They’re picking up the last of their pride, I got them first, you see Don’t let me get you down, don’t let me make you cry Don’t stop to waste that time, I’ll have to pass you by You can run from the ocean. You can run from the sea You can run on your own two feet, but you can’t run away from me You can run from Colorado. You can run from Tennessee You can run any way you want but you can’t run away from me You can’t run away from me You can’t run away from me

I been stuck in this prison between the earth and the sky Too old to live and too young to die Got liquor and pills, got a foul mouthed grin Let’s start this party come on welcome me in Go and tell your bossman Tell him I don’t like to wait I’m coming down down down Come on raise the gate Don’t tell me no lies don’t sell me no bull My name’s on that list and I know you ain’t full I won’t take a number, I won’t disappear I’ll burn Hell to cinders now tell him I’m here Go and tell your bossman Tell him I don’t like to wait I’m coming down down down Come on raise the gate I’ve been waiting too long to be thrown in this pile I want the big man, with that tempting red smile I blew up a church and a burned down an old cross Took nothing but hate and gave nothing but loss Go and tell your bossman Tell him I don’t like to wait I’m coming down down down Come on raise the gate Raise it up raise it up high I wasted this body, all starving and thin I cut many down with a blade made of sin I was tied to a table poison pumped through my veins I watched my reflection as he circled down the drain Go and tell your bossman Tell him I don’t like to wait I’m coming down down down Come on raise the gate

Lose myself walking Down Lonely Street Drag the smoke off a clove cigarette in the fog of my defeat Thought I was happy Thought I was complete Thought I knew the rules of love but I’m looking for a way to cheat Sick and tired of living’ down and out Music refuses to pull me through Every night I go to sleep and I have the same dream Where I’m wakin’ up next to you If I could love you Every day If I could love you In every way Wish I could love you Wherever you are I’ll have to love you my baby but only from afar I’ll have to love you my honey but only from afar Used to know the difference Between what’s real and fake I can’t tell if this is living or Hell If I’m dreaming or if I’m awake Find myself walking Up Lovely Road I was trying to steal a kiss from Fall while being watched by Man Winter’s cold Nighttime alone with these foolish thoughts Strong enough to drive a strong man mad Wish you were the one I could say, “Got away” But you’re the one I never had If I could love you Every day If I could love you In every way Wish I could love you Wherever you are I’ll have to love you my baby but only from afar I’ll have to love you my honey but only from afar

The End 12:21
Say your goodbyes to all your friends This is the way the world ends Keep on runnin’ if you get hurt Tears are wasted upon the dirt I made a promise I will see through The day is done the sky is black Whatever you hear, don’t ever turn back No fish to swim no birds to fly The trees are barren the river dry All that I do I do for you There’s a war blowin’ in and it’s gonna hit soon The dead are gonna walk by the light of the moon The oceans gonna boil the mountains gonna rage Who let the devil out of the cage? Rest for a moment you don’t understand Horsemen have set forth across the land Riding swiftly beyond the plains Silent cities only death remains I have a debt I can’t repay Follow the tracks and stay out of sight Embrace the dark race through the night Upon the mountain there is a hallow Go alone I cannot follow I am broken and here I stay There’s a war blowin’ in and it’s gonna hit soon The dead are gonna walk by the light of the moon The oceans gonna boil the mountains gonna rage Who let the devil out of the cage?
