Lyrics

So many roads you'll travel - many lonely miles

Before you join the Battle, before you reconcile

You're with it or against it - or you stand alone

Blink and you'll have missed it, staying late at home

 

     Waiting on the sun, just waiting on the sun

     The will that will be done, just waiting on the sun

 

Earthquakes shake the mountains - and rivers flood the sea

And there's no way of counting what may set you free

And darkness has its comfort and shadows have their right

To give you peaceful slumber when trouble's out of sight

 

     Waiting on the sun, just waiting on the sun

     The will that will be done, just waiting on the sun

 

          The moon can be so lovely - but never shines enough

          And leaves you old and ugly - with diamonds and your rust

 

I'll see you in the morning, I'll greet you when we rise

I pray it won't be storming when we say goodnight

 

     Waiting on the sun, just waiting on the sun

     The will that will be done, just waiting on the sun

Lyrics

No one knows when love is certain

Cheatin's just a slip away - and when the sin's discovered

Guess who's gonna' have to crawl home

Once those bonds of faith are broken

Kind'a makes it hard to see - how I could ever trust ya'

Guess who's gonna' have to crawl home

 

     Do you even know what it was you did

     I can forgive but I can't forget

     It amazes me how you can deny it

     And cryin' just won't do

     Everybody crawls home once - everybody crawls home

 

Sayin' sorry is just a token

It ain't gonna' be enough - you better just start packin'

Guess who's gonna' have to crawl home

I ain't gonna' be your salvation

You're gonna' have to walk away - and learn to live without me

Cause honey's gonna' have to crawl home

 

     You can tell your daddy that I'm no good

     Blame me all you want, Miss Misunderstood

     You left a long trail of indiscretions

     And daddy ain't no fool

     Bet he had to crawl home once - everybody crawls home

     I bet daddy crawled home once - cause everybody crawls home

 

          Run around if you think you have to

          Turn a few heads and you think they want you

          It won't bring you satisfaction

          No matter how much you get

          There ain't a feeling more empty

          Everybody crawls home once - everybody crawls home

 

You became my sole temptation

Now I'm gonna' call a stop - to the whole frustation

When I get to watch you crawl home

 

     Do you even know what it was you did

     I can forgive but I can't forget

     It amazes me how you can deny it

     And cryin' just won't do

     Everybody crawls home once - everybody crawls home

Lyrics

I am lying here, my head on my saddle

My hat lay 'cross my weary brow

And I listen to the cattle, they are lowing

And the warm fire is glowing

And that's good enough for now

 

And I dream of finding a land that's unbroken

With canyon's and seasons I see even now

But seasons are fickle, and dreams are contrary

And I wake on the prairie

And that's good enough for now

 

Yes I dream of riding and land with no fences

Where a day has no people, and miles to go

And gods hands upon me in sun and in hail

"Til the end of my trail

And that's good enough for now

Lyrics

Thought we were old enough, thought we were all grown up
Back in the fall of sixty-two
Stuck in a steel town, I pushed the ore around
You were sixteen, I was twenty-two
 
We talked for days and days, we planned our getaway
I put a ring on your left hand
Your daddy disapproved, your momma cried for you
There was no way they’d understand
 
     We felt we had the right
     So we took off one night
     No other choice was left to choose
     Back in those younger years
     We lived without those fears
     We thought there’s nothing we can lose
 
          Younger Years, we knew what we wanted then
          Younger Years, we reached out and took it in
          Younger Years, Younger Years
 
A job was hard to find, long unemployment lines
When we got down to our last dime
With rent due on the first, it went from hard to worse
Don’t know how we got through those times
 
     We could have given up
     Said that we’d had enough
     Somehow we put up a good fight
     Back in those Younger Years
     We brushed away the tears
     And just held on to you and I
 
          Younger Years, we knew what we wanted then
          Younger Years, we reached out and took it in
          Younger Years, Younger Years
 
               Times are still tough and we just get by
               It’s harder now to get up and try
 
     But in those Younger Years before we had these fears
     Our love could always get us by

Lyrics

A woman that was never understood

Liked to drink corn liquor in the woods

And some say she was pretty, some say no

Wilder than a wild Irish rose

 

            None who threw the stones were without guilt

            They say she moved away across the hills

            No matter how you play, with time you kill

            You’ll never see the ghost of Perryville

 

The sheriff keeps her picture near his heart

The banker has her jewelry in both cars

The mayor’s staying close to the family

He swore that he could solve the mystery

 

            None who threw the stones were without guilt

            They say she moved away across the hills

            No matter how you play, with time you kill

            You’ll never see the ghost of Perryville

 

The minister has little on his mind

He sells his story Sunday for a dime

The deacon disappeared down in Mexico

The only thing that’s clear is the case is closed

 

            None who threw the stones were without guilt

            They say she moved away across the hills

            No matter how you play, with time you kill

            You’ll never see the ghost of Perryville
