Track Name: Come On
IT’S A FREIGHT TRAIN ROLLING DOWN THE TRACK
WHEN IT’S GOIN’, YOU CAN’T TURN IT BACK
IT’S A WHIRLWIND TWISTIN AROUND
AND YOU CAN’T SLOW IT DOWN
DON’T SPEAK I KNOW WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND
JUST KISS ME, LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND
THERE’S NO USE WAITING
OR HESITATING

CHORUS:
COME ON COME ON COME ON COME ON BABY
YOU GOT MY HEART YOU MIGHT AS WELL TAKE IT
YOU’RE LIKE A HURRICANE I GET CAUGHT IN
I’M ON THE EDGE, ALREADY FALLING
WHAT CAN I SAY, WHAT CAN I DO
I KNOW I KNOW YOU’RE FEELING IT TOO
YOU DRIVE ME CRAZY
SO COME ON COME ON COME ON COME ON BABY

LET GO, LOOK INTO MY EYES
BABY LET’S GET PULLED INTO THE TIDE
‘CAUSE WE CAN’T DENY IT
IT’S SOMETHING SO STRONG WE’RE NEVER GONNA FIGHT IT, YEAH YEAH

CHORUS

TAKE A RISK, TAKE A CHANCE
DON’T LET IT SLIP THROUGH YOUR HANDS
BEFORE YOU KNOW IT THE MOMENT’S GONE
SO COME ON, COME ON

CHORUS:
COME ON COME ON COME ON COME ON BABY
YOU GOT MY HEART YOU MIGHT AS WELL TAKE IT
YOU’RE LIKE A HURRICANE I GET CAUGHT IN
I’M ON THE EDGE, ALREADY FALLING
WHAT CAN I SAY, WHAT CAN I DO
I KNOW I KNOW YOU’RE FEELING IT TOO
YOU DRIVE ME CRAZY
SO COME ON COME ON COME ON COME ON (COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON)
WHAT CAN I SAY, WHAT CAN I DO
I KNOW I KNOW YOU’RE FEELING IT TOO
YOU DRIVE ME CRAZY
SO COME ON COME ON COME ON COME ON BABY
Track Name: Jackson
IT’S A LONG WAY BACK TO JACKSON
IN A BEAT UP CADILLAC
WITH A BIBLE ON THE FLOORBOARD AND A BODY IN THE BACK

HIS EYES WERE BLUE, CLEAR AS A DEEP BLUE SEA
AND THEY WERE MARRIED UNDERNEATH A CHESTNUT TREE
HE HELD THAT BIBLE IN HIS HAND
SWORE HE’D ALWAYS BE HER MAN UNTIL THE END, OH TIL THE END
THEY HAD A LITTLE HOUSE DOWN BY THE OLD MILL CREEK
SHE TRIED TO COVER UP THE BRUISES ON HER CHEEKS
HE KEPT A PISTOL IN THE DRAWER
AND NO ONE ASKED WHAT IT WAS FOR
BUT THAT WAS THEN, YEAH THAT WAS THEN…NOW

CHORUS:
IT’S A LONG WAY BACK TO JACKSON
IN A BEAT UP CADILLAC
WITH A BIBLE ON THE FLOORBOARD AND A BODY IN THE BACK
HEADLIGHTS ON THE HIGHWAY SHINING IN THE NIGHT
THE TRUTH AIN’T ALWAYS PRETTY AND LOVE AIN’T ALWAYS RIGHT
SOME PROMISES AIN’T BROKEN, SOME VOWS WON’T COME UNDONE
‘TIL YOU SEE THE SMOKE A-RISING FROM THE BARREL OF A GUN

ON THE NIGHT SHE DISAPPEARED
NOBODY HEARD A SOUND
THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE CLUE LEFT TO BE FOUND
YOU CAN ASK BUT HE WON’T TELL
‘CAUSE THE ANSWER’S HIDDEN WELL
SOMEWHERE BESIDE I-55…AND

REPEAT CHORUS

THERE WAS NEVER ANY CRIME OH ‘CAUSE THERE WAS NO PROOF
BUT A BIG SISTER ALWAYS KNOWS THE TRUTH
SO WHEN HE GETS HOME LATE TONIGHT
I SWEAR TO GOD I’LL MAKE THINGS RIGHT
I’LL BE WAITIN’ INSIDE WITH A .45…AND

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Never Be The Same
I’VE STOOD WITH BOTH FEET IN THE OCEAN
UNDERNEATH A STARRY SKY
I’VE SAT UP ON MY DADDY’S SHOULDERS
AND WATCHED THE PARADE GO BY
I’VE HEARD THE SWEET SOUND OF A LOVER
SOFTLY WHISPERING MY NAME
I’VE FELT THE HEAT, I’VE FELT THE HUNGER
AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

CHORUS:
I’VE TASTED KISSES AND I’VE TASTED TEARS (AH) – very airy
WATCHED LOVE GROW AND WATCHED IT DISAPPEAR (AH)
I HAVE SEARCHED FOR TRUTH AND CHOSEN LIES (AH)
I’VE BEEN SELFISH AND I’VE SACRIFICED
I’VE LET GO TOO SOON, HELD ON TOO HARD (GO TOO SOON)
BROKEN PROMISES AND BROKEN HEARTS (PROMISES)
I HAVE LIVED AND LEARNED AND HEALED AND HURT AND LAUGHED AND CURSED AND PRAYED
AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

I’VE GIVEN UP THE THINGS I NEEDED
AND WHAT I THOUGHT MADE ME WHOLE
AND I’VE FOUND BEAUTY IN MY WEAKNESS
I’M NOT AFRAID TO LET IT SHOW
AND I HAVE SCREAMED OUT LOUD TO JESUS
WHEN I THOUGHT HE COULDN’T HEAR MY PAIN
BUT THEN I HEARD THE ANSWER
AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

CHORUS:
I’VE TASTED KISSES AND I’VE TASTED TEARS (KISSES)
WATCHED LOVE GROW AND WATCHED IT DISAPPEAR (DISAPPEAR)
I HAVE TRUSTED AND I’VE BEEN BETRAYED (TRUSTED)
FOUGHT MY WAY BACK OUT OF MY MISTAKES
I HAVE LOST MY FAITH BEEN FOUND BY GRACE (LOST MY FAITH)
I’VE MADE TEARS RUN DOWN MY MOTHER’S FACE (TEARS RUN DOWN)
I HAVE LIVED AND LEARNED AND HEALED AND HURT AND LAUGHED AND CURSED AND PRAYED
AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

I HAVE LAID FRESH FLOWERS ON A GRAVE
SEEN THE FUTURE IN A BABY’S FACE
I HAVE LIVED AND LEARNED AND HEALED AND HURT AND LAUGHED AND CURSED AND PRAYED
AND I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME
I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME
I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME
Track Name: I'm Gone
I GAVE IT ALL, I GAVE ENOUGH
I’M GIVING IN, I’M GIVING UP
I’M OUT OF TIME, I’M OUT OF TEARS
I’M OUT OF LUCK, I’M OUT OF HERE

CHORUS:
ON A BUS, ON A PLANE
ON A TRUCK, ON A TRAIN
ON A BIKE, ON MY FEET
DOWN ON MY HANDS AND KNEES
PAID MY DUES, PAID THE FARE
POINT THE WAY, I DON’T CARE WHAT I’M ON
I’M GONE

I’M OVERWHELMED, I’M UNDESIRED
MISUNDERSTOOD, UNSATISFIED
IT’S OVERDONE, IT’S OVERDUE
HIT OVERDRIVE, I’M OVER YOU

CHORUS

CHORUS:
ON A BUS, ON A PLANE
ON A TRUCK, ON A TRAIN
ON A BIKE, ON MY FEET
DOWN ON MY HANDS AND KNEES
ON A TRACK, ON THE ROAD
IN A CAR, ON A BOAT
ON THE GROUND, IN THE AIR
BABY I DON’T CARE

I’M GONE
I’M GONE
I’M GONE

Track Name: Somebody Does
YOU FEEL SO LOST
LIKE YOU DON’T HAVE A SOUL TO TALK TO, DOWN AND OUT
YOU WONDER WHAT YOU’RE GONNA DO NOW
THAT EVERYTHING’S TURNING UPSIDE DOWN
AND YOU CAN’T GET YOUR FEET ON SOLID GROUND
LIKE NO ONE’S LISTENING NO ONE’S THERE
LIKE NO ONE CARES…BUT

CHORUS
SOMEBODY DOES
SOMEBODY WILL
SOMEBODY’S PRAYING FOR YOU NOW
PRAYING FOR YOUR HEART TO HEAL
YOU THINK YOU’RE ALONE
BUT I PROMISE YOU
SOMEBODY’S MISSING YOU, NEEDING YOU, THINKING YOU HUNG THE MOON
I KNOW RIGHT NOW YOU FEEL LIKE NO ONE LOVES YOU
SOMEBODY DOES

YOU USED TO SMILE
IT USED TO LIGHT UP THE WHOLE WORLD, WHERE DID IT GO
YOU GOTTA FIND THAT SPARK AGAIN AND LET IT SHOW
BUT YOU’RE HIDING IT AWAY THERE IN THE DARK
LIKE YOU’VE FORGOTTEN WHO YOU REALLY ARE
YOU THINK NO ONE BELIEVES IN YOU
BUT THAT’S NOT TRUE

CHORUS

CHORUS
SOMEBODY DOES
SOMEBODY WILL
SOMEBODY’S PRAYING FOR YOU NOW
PRAYING FOR YOUR HEART TO HEAL
YOU THINK YOU’RE ALONE
BUT I PROMISE YOU
SOMEBODY’S MISSING YOU, NEEDING YOU, THINKING YOU HUNG THE MOON
I KNOW RIGHT NOW YOU FEEL LIKE NO ONE LOVES YOU
BUT SOMEBODY DOES, OH SOMEBODY DOES
Track Name: Blue As My Broken Heart
LITTLE BIRD SITTING UP ON A WIRE
SINGING YOUR SONG LIKE YOUR SOUL’S ON FIRE
IT’S AN ALL TOO FAMILIAR TUNE
I FEEL JUST LIKE YOU

ECHO OF A FREIGHT TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWING
CRYING ALL NIGHT AND KNOWN ONE KNOWS IT
LONELY ON A ONE-WAY TRACK
I FEEL JUST LIKE THAT

CHORUS:
BLUE
AS THE SKY WITHOUT ONE SINGLE STAR
BLUE
BLUE AS THE OCEAN AND BLUE AS MY BROKEN HEART

WILLOW BY THE SIDE OF A RIVER WEEPING
LIKE THERE’S NOTHING IN THE WORLD LEFT TO BELIEVE IN
LIKE IT HURTS SO BAD YOU’LL NEVER HEAL
I KNOW HOW THAT FEELS

CHORUS:
BLUE
AS THE SKY WITHOUT ONE SINGLE STAR
BLUE
BLUE AS THE OCEAN AND BLUE AS MY BROKEN HEART

PRETTY LITTLE FLOWER IN THE SHADE OF AN OAK TREE
YOU TAKE A LITTLE RAIN AND YOU KEEP ON GROWING
YOU’RE STRONGER THAN YOU THOUGHT YOU’D BE
YOU’RE JUST LIKE ME
YOU’RE JUST LIKE ME
YOU’RE JUST LIKE ME
Track Name: Barefoot Girl
Every day, every night, every channel on TV
They’re trying to sell beautiful like it doesn’t come for free
They’re all just chasin’ perfect and it makes me laugh
I’m not the kind of girl that’s gonna fall for that

Chorus:
I’m not a beauty queen
A picture from the cover of a magazine
But baby if you’re wanting an original natural real live woman
You can be my man
But only if you love me just the way I am
Standing in the middle of a highrise high heels world
I’m a barefoot girl

I like a riverbank getaway blanket underneath the stars
All wrapped up bed of your truck nothing but the beat of two hearts
Forget designer dresses and limousines
I’d rather wear my favorite pair of torn up jeans

(repeat chorus)

Oh what you see is what you get with me
Oh ‘cause boy you know

Chorus:
I’m not a beauty queen
A picture from the cover of a magazine
But baby if you’re wanting an original natural real live woman
You can be my man
But only if you love me just the way I am
Standing in the middle of a high rise high heels world
It’s a highrise high heels world
And I’m a barefoot girl
Track Name: Mama Said Don't
MAMA SAID DON’T GO NEAR THAT RIVER
WEARING THAT SUNDAY DRESS
SPENT A LOTTA MONEY ON THAT PRETTY LITTLE THING SO YOU
BETTER NOT GET IT WET
BUT I COULDN’T HELP BUT WANNA JUMP RIGHT IN
WHEN I FELT THAT SUMMER SUN BEAT DOWN
I DID WHAT SHE SAID I DIDN’T GET IT WET
I LEFT IT ON THE MUDDY GROUND

CHORUS:
MAMA SAID DON’T, I SWORE THAT I WON’T
BUT EVERY TIME MAMA SAID DON’T - I DID

MAMA SAID DON’T YOU WASTE YOUR TIME GIRL
CHASIN’ A BOY LIKE THAT
HE’S THE KIND OF TROUBLE THAT HIS DADDY WAS
HE’LL BREAK YOUR HEART IN NO TIME FLAT
DON’T YOU FALL FOR THAT UP TO SOMETHING
CROOKED GOOD FOR NOTHING GRIN
BUT WHEN HE PULLED UP IN HIS RED S10
I COULDN’T HELP BUT JUMP RIGHT IN

CHORUS

EVERY TIME I TRY TO PROVE HER WRONG
SHE ALWAYS ENDS UP RIGHT
BUT IT JUST WOULDN’T BE LIKE ME
IF I DIDN’T PUT UP A FIGHT

CHORUS
MAMA SAID DON’T (DON’T)
MAMA SAID DON’T (MAMA SAID DON’T)
DON’T YOU DO IT NOW, GIRL (DON’T)
MAMA SAID DON’T (MAMA SAID DON’T)

LAST CHORUS:
MAMA SAID DON’T, I SWORE THAT I WON’T
BUT EVERY TIME MAMA SAID DON’T
OH EVERY TIME MAMA SAID DON’T
YEAH I SWEAR EVERY TIME MAMA SAID DON’T, I DID, I DID
Track Name: Remember That
REMEMBER HOW HE TOLD YOU YOU WERE STUPID
HOW HE COULDN’T EVEN LOOK AT YOU ANYMORE
REMEMBER HOW HE TOLD YOU YOU WERE CRAZY
HOW HE GOT OUT OF THE CAR AND SLAMMED THE DOOR
HE SAID YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING RIGHT
WHY YOU GOTTA MAKE ME SO MAD
JUST GET OUT OF MY SIGHT
REMEMBER THAT

CHORUS:
WHEN IT’S 3 AM AND HE’S AT YOUR DOOR
AND HE WANTS YOU BACK AND HE’S BEGGING FOR
FORGIVENESS – REMEMBER THAT
WHEN YOUR PHONE KEEPS RINGING ALL NIGHT LONG
AND THAT SAME OLD WEAKNESS GETS SO STRONG
THAT YOU’RE HELPLESS– REMEMBER THAT

REMEMBER HOW HE PUSHED YOU IN THE HALLWAY
JUST ENOUGH TO HURT A LITTLE BIT
REMEMBER THE WHISKEY IN HIS WHISPERS
AND THE LIES THAT FELL SO EASY FROM HIS LIPS
HE SAID HE’LL NEVER DO IT AGAIN
BUT HE CAN’T TAKE IT BACK
THE PROOF IS ON YOUR SKIN
REMEMBER THAT

CHORUS

IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW HE HURTS YOU
WITH HIS HANDS OR WITH HIS WORDS YOU
DON’T DESERVE IT, IT AIN’T WORTH IT
TAKE YOUR HEART AND RUN – JUST RUN

CHORUS

REMEMBER YOU’RE GONNA BE ALRIGHT
TAKE IT FROM ME, I’VE STOOD THERE IN YOUR SHOES
Track Name: The Other Side
LORD WHEN I COME TO SEE YOUR FACE
I WON’T SLEEP THERE IN MY GRAVE
I’LL SHED THE ASHES AND DUST AWAY
AND I KNOW I WILL NOT DIE
LIFT ME UP IN A ROBIN’S WING
HIGH ABOVE THE CLOUDS IN SPRING
RAISE ME HIGH IN A CHURCH BELL’S RING
WHEN I REACH THE OTHER SIDE

PLANT ME DEEP IN A MAPLE TREE
GROW SOME FLOWERS AT MY FEET
POUR ME OUT IN AN AUTUMN BREEZE
ACROSS A MOUNTAINSIDE
CARRY ME IN AN OCEAN WAVE
UNDER SKIES ALL STORMY GREY
SHINE ME DOWN IN A SUNSET’S RAYS
WHEN I REACH THE OTHER SIDE

CHORUS:
SING ME IN A SUNDAY MORNING CHOIR
ROLL ME DOWN A LOVER’S CHEEK
LIFT ME, LIFT ME SOMEWHERE HIGHER
AND TELL THE ONES I LOVE NOT TO CRY FOR ME

HIDE ME DEEP IN A FIELD OF GRAIN
UNDERNEATH THE SUMMER RAIN
RAISE ME UP IN A SILENT PRAYER
OR A NEWBORN BABY’S CRY
LAY ME DOWN IN A COUNTRY ROAD
IN THE FRESHLY FALLEN SNOW
AND THE MIDNIGHT MIST AND THE FULL MOON GLOW
WHEN I REACH THE OTHER SIDE

CHORUS

LORD WHEN I COME TO SEE YOUR FACE
I WON’T SLEEP THERE IN MY GRAVE
I’LL SHED THE ASHES AND DUST AWAY
WHEN I REACH THE OTHER SIDE
