Track Name: Bar the Door
When love comes to call
Don't open the door
She'll leave you breathless
Ragged and torn

Under your window
Calling your name
A star-crossed lover
Standing in the rain

When the wine bottle's empty
And the creek has run dry
The moon and the stars
Fall out of your sky

Love will com to you
A burden to bear
Trailing the light
In the strands of her hair

When love comes,
Bar the door
She'll take all you have
And ask you for more
And by the light of the moon
From the opposite shore
She'll leave you ragged and torn

Flames from the fire
Keep eating my words
Watching my old friends
Flicker and burn

Love's hand in mine
As I sit here alone
I'm leaving the sun
But I'm taking my bones

When love comes,
Bar the door
She'll take all you have
And ask you for more
And by the light of the moon
From the opposite shore
She'll leave you ragged and torn
Track Name: Over the Branches
The sun dances on across the moonless sky
Chasing the darkness again
You cover your tracks on the river of time
But I'll be around the next bend

Around the next bend
I'll see your face once again
Around the next bend
I'll see your face once again

As autumn turns to winter, winter to spring
He follows her fading glow
I climbed up your tree and made myself king
Over the branches below

Below, below
Over the branches below
Below, below
Over the branches below

And I fell down from my lofty throne
And I broke my crown and I broke my bones
And the grass grew tall around your base
With poison ivy and Queen Anne's lace

The sun dances on across the moonless sky
Chasing the darkness again
But he'll never catch her and neither will I
But I'll be around the next bend

Around the next bend
I'll see your face once again
Around the next bend
I'll see your face once again
Track Name: Us Below
I guess I’ve got nowhere to go
Cause my debt’s been paid and my cars been towed
Looks like it’s about to snow
Down from the heavens on us below


And these lies I tell I’ve told before
Stumbling through an open door
Broken hands can’t ask for more
Make love to me on the kitchen floor

One of whiskey and one of gin
Maybe I should go to work again
For these callouses are wearin’ thin
So open the door and let the sinners in


The memories they fade to gray
And to black and then they fade away
And when she asked me if I’d stay
I faded to black and then I faded away

But mercy walks on a crooked line
Forgiving those who been left behind
She steps in close with luck and fate
She washes your hands and she cleans your plate


I guess I’ve got nowhere to go
Cause my debt’s been paid and my cars been towed
Looks like it’s about to snow
Down from the heavens on us below
Track Name: Mrs. Tommy Lee
Well I was ridin' with my shotgun, the barrel on my knee
Wishin' it was you, wishin' I were me
Like neighboring' freight cars we'd travel round and round
A few feet between us our wheels on the ground
Rollin', rollin' round and round

Well I was ridin' with my shotgun, the barrel on my chest
Iff'n I was home would you hold me to your breast
Only for a moment, a moment two or three
I wouldn't tell a no-one, not even Tommy Lee
Tommy he's got money, but his money ain't no good
He couldn't ever treat you right, like I surely would
I'd give you everything I had, all that I possess
Iff'n you'd pick me over Tommy and the rest

Well Tommy beat me to it, he asked for your hand
He offered you a ring and more money than I had
You took him on his offer, you wedded him that night
And I went up to Tommy and offered him a fight
I shot him in the shoulder, he shot me in the chest
As I lay dying you held me to your breast
Only for a moment, a moment two or three
The last face I saw was Mrs. Tommy Lee

Well I was ridin' with my shotgun, the barrel on my knee
Wishin' it was you, wishin' I were me
Like neighboring' freight cars we'd travel round and round
A few feet between us our wheels on the ground
Rollin', rollin' round and round
Track Name: Marley Anne
I might not be the tallest man,
But I sure would like to take your hand
Marley Anne

And underneath those Christmas lights,
I never thought I’d last the night
Marley Anne

Through soft rush and umbrella sedge,
I’ll sit with you at the water’s edge
Marley Anne

The prettiest flowers in your hair,
I’d kiss you but I don’t dare
Marley Anne


Your hair was red amidst the black,
When you left scratches on my back
Marley Anne

And three little birds sat on my shoulder,
Never thought I’d be the one to hold ya
Marley Anne


Roll to the sea
Roll till you feel free
But don’t roll away from me
Away from me


I might not be the tallest man,
But I sure would like to take your hand
Marley Anne

Shelter me from the storm,
I promise I will keep you warm
Marley Anne


Roll to the sea
Roll till you feel free
But don’t roll away from me
Away from me


Roll to the sea
Roll till you feel free
But don’t roll away from me
Away from me
Track Name: Jenny
Coming around, the wind brought me down
Billowing up through the trees
And hiding amid the cornfield we did
Fly like a bird far away

The old pick-up truck, the dirt and the dust
I broke my old legs on this road
And the flowers I took are pressed in a book
I've never known a girl save you

Never known a girl save you


Jenny I remember the night in my room
Knockin' on my windowpane
You taught me to love and you taught me to fool
But Jenny are you coming back soon


Coming around, the wind brought me down
Billowing up through the trees
And the place where we lay had faded away
But Jenny are you coming back soon

Jenny are you coming back soon


Jenny I remember the night in my room
Knockin' on my windowpane
You taught me to love and you taught me to fool
But Jenny are you coming back soon


Jenny I remember the night in my room
Knockin' on my windowpane
You taught me to love and you taught me to fool
But Jenny are you coming back soon
