Lyrics

sparrows and sparrows

sparrows and sparrows and robins and robins
empty beer bottles and heart broken arrows
dreams in dungeons and children who love ya
flowers in bloom and me without you

there's a stillness in the midwest and a ringin' in my ears
ev'rything I think about ain't very clear
the pine trees are lined up under the blue
stumblin' an ol' street and me without you

chorus

there's a thickness and a blackness wrapped in my mind
ev'ry good moment pushes on time
I'm cussin' the buses and cars flyin' by'
where is the real truth for me without you

chorus

goin' home

same ol' sirens on the west side
same ol' troubles right down town
you tried to hold me like no tomorrow
you tried to keep me on your mind

I still hear the mornin' thunder
I still see you through a window

oh Lord it's gettin' colder tonight
oh Lord summer's 'bout all gone
right behind you is my suitcase
follow me boy we're goin' home

why can't you open up your eyes
it don't matter 'bout my size
I can't figure out nothin'
I can't figure out what to say

oh Lord it's gettin' colder tonight
oh Lord summer's 'bout all gone
right behind you is my suitcase
follow me boy we're goin' home

chorus

goin' home

chorus

goin' home

a steady heart

the rain will come
the rain will blow
her back someday
when the mornin' moans

the mornin' moans
full o'shame
not a word will do
to prove me true

with a steady heart
and a steady love
my hands keepa shakin'
like a storm

how many years musta willow sway
'fore the nightwinds call
call out her name

call out 'er name
inside the wind
no more to hear
my deadly sins

with a steady heart
and a steady love
my hands keepa shakin'
like a storm

first verse

baby doll

baby doll oh baby doll
give a girl a smile
I got sixty dollars in my shoe
standin' in the rain

baby doll oh baby doll
racein' round the clock
words liftin' from the dark
standin' in the rain

I got blinded eyes
in the back o' my head
shootin' my foot instead
standin' in the rain

baby doll oh baby doll
florence was her name
wind blowin' hard as nails
standin' in the rain

chorus

last first

chorus

baby doll oh baby doll
standin' in the rain

room 11

room eleven
twelve pack o'beer
pack o' dogs on the street
no lock on the window

room eleven
holed up all night
up tight in the attic
no lock on the window

hot up in the mornin'
ev'rybody countin' on rain
I gotta half o'mind to face
no lock on the window

room eleven
don't say a word
but say baby I love you
no lock on the window

chorus

room eleven
all over this town
over and under
no lock on the window

chorus
chorus

no lock on the window
no lock on the window

cryin' dime

lil' piggy went to market
big hog stays home
some cats keep a walkin'
some cats stay gone

for a cryin' dime
it's a cryin' shame

a new washin' machine
makes you clean as a whistle
freedom for real
freedom in a pistol

chorus:
for a cryin' dime
it's a cryin' shame
for a cryin' dime
it's a cryin' shame

man in a box
you gotta woman runnin'
the judge knows a fox
the judge knows I'm comin'

repeat chorus

show me your number
fairy tales come true
you're dreamin' in color
I'm dreamin' in blue

repeat chorus

repeat first verse

repeat chorus

not forgotten

I am no mother
I am no father
just a little one
not forgotten

born on your shoulders
never grow older
just a little one
not forgotten

chorus
there are no tears
no sadness found
cause only love
can make a cound

we are many
as the stars
so few to linger
here for so long

no flesh and bones
no clothes no home
just a little one
not forgotten

chorus
I pray for you
please pray for me
forever thru
eternity

your eyes will shine

summer plantin's gone to seed
seed's a plenty for times in need
leave your light on dear darlin'
your eyes will shine for me again

night's a fallin' black as coal
coal was warmer in those days
leave your light on dear darlin'
your eyes will shine for me again

cryin' wolves at my door
cryin' babies will cry no more
leave your light on dear darlin'

rain and sickness fills the air
breathe the rest for better wear
leave your light on dear darlin'
your eyes will shine for me again

chorus
chorus

leave your light on dear darlin'
your eyes will shine for me again

your eyes will shine for me again

yesterday's clothes

I ain't never heard you singin'
I ain't never heard you cry
you been livin' here on the other side
you keepa tellin' me why

dressed to kill hangin' around
tooth and nail hammer down
you been livin' here on the other side
you keepa tellin' me why

why am I hear
where will I go
what am I doin' here down below
I can't see my hands
can't see my feet
blood's gonna flow
in yesterday's clothes

gone to hell in this town
oh black thunder in the crowd
you been livin' here on the other side
you keepa tellin' me why

animated sanctuary

animated sanctuary
t'bacca corn and barley
room enough for hangin' on

where's the money
suckle ginger bread
left overflowin'
room enough for hangin' on

silence golden
silence it ain't free
silence made for holdin'
room enough for hangin' on

hide the jackle
hide the guilty one
oh mercy's daughter
room enough for hangin' on

keep the hungry
bastards movin' on
t'bacca corn and barley
room enough for hangin' on

animated sanctuary

this old house

this old house creaks and groans
and stays the howlin' wind
in the doorway friendly faces
through the winter nights
bitter winter nights

this old house gently whispers
sweeter days gone by
makin' lovin' pictures
through the winter nights
bitter winter nights

chorus
painted so ageless
sittin' here rockin'
through these ol' changin' times
winter nights
bitter winter nights

this old house found a home
holdin' prayin' hands
never alone anymore
through the winter nights
bitter winter nights

where is my garden

ain't no need you knockin'
won't you come on in
been waitin' for you brother
my God my friend

your workin days are over
and your sufferin's gone
love's gonna live forever
and your job is done

where is my garden
lookin' on the hill
old blood gets hardened
rockin' cheek to cheek

lay down your shovel
walk on down the road
your mama's waitin' for you
hold on to her

chorus

lay down your shovel
and walk on down the road
your mama your brother even a stranger's
waitin' for you so hold on hold on tell me now

chorus

where is my garden.....
