Track Name: Do Be Do
We were watching Walker Texas Ranger
In a cheap hotel in Memphis
We were eating cup-o-noodle
I was wearing your blue underpants

And the lady in the lobby
Was trying to watch the Fox TV
While she stared as us suspiciously
And you wanted to buy a bb gun

And you said
Some people like to go to church every Sunday
And watch their big TVs
They’re riding on a cart to walmart
Praying god will set them free

But there’s so much more in this big old world
So much more to see
Just keep ahold of the reins now baby
Because right now we are free
To do, to be
To do-be do-be do-be do-be do-be-do-be do

We’re a couple catholic gypsy roamers
Guitars and cars and telephoners
You read me Kafka on your cell phone
Wrangle, ride, and rope me in so strong

Baby stay the night (3x)
Lets do, and be, and do-be-do-be-do-be-do-be-do-be-do-be-do

When we finally checked out of our hotel home
You kissed me hard so everyone would know
And drove your car to San Francisco
And I wanted to go away with you.

And I know
Some people have to go to work on the week days
I hope their banks get big
There's traffic lanes, 401ks
Marriage and Miller Lite

But there’s so much more in this big old world
So much more to see
So just keep ahold of the reins now baby
Because right now we are free
To do, to be, to do-be, do-be, do-be
Track Name: Change
There’s a warm wind whipping
Through the mountains and the sage
Driving through the desert
Ghost town planes
The gas station’s closed
But the welcome sign still hangs
Tattered and frayed through years and days
And sunrays

I have only to change my direction
I have only to change
I have only to change my direction

Take a picture thru the window
Engine revving high
Watching the windmills
Wave on by
My life in backseat boxes
Your shadow in my mind
Spinning broken record
Of our last goodbye
I’m leaving you behind

I have only to change my direction
I have only to change
I have only to change my direction

I’ve got a suitcase
of tattered trail ways
and tips
A meditation bell
The smoke of your kiss
Imprinted and engraved
In the marrow of my hips
Oh quiver, quake
And quicken me
Away from your lips

I have only to change my direction
I have only to change
I have only to change my direction
Track Name: I Told You So
I Told You So:

You walk on by me down on the beach
Looking like you just had the sweetest taste
Of I told you so
You said I told you so
You laugh at me as if to say
My silly little lines won’t take today
I told you so
You said I told you so

You said love is real, love is true, love is everywhere to you
I promise you

So just you wait and soon you’ll see
Love’s waiting for you down by bay
In tall rain boots
With a bucket
So you can dig and dig and dig to your hearts content
But whatever you dig has already been sent
So find a log where can watch the tide roll in

And you can pitch and moan like a mast in the wind
Blown by the islands down to the main land

So follow this tide down as far as it goes
Walk on water, stomp on stomp on clam shells
Cuz I’m just me, and you’re still you
And I don’t think we’re changing anytime soon

Cuz what you want has been here all along
In shiny purple shells and barnacle rocks
Big grey sky and cold cold wind
Can’t cover up the sound . . .

Of your I told you so
I told you so
Baby I told you so
You said I told you so
Yeah yeah yeah, I told you so
Track Name: Lustre Pearl
She laughed in bars of music
Strands of stories raining down
I caught her words in my colander
And strained them through the town

Her lips burned with the promise of song
The secrets that she holds
Brimming up the walls and alleyway
She will not be silenced I’m told

Crawl into my lamp
And turn it on
Little diamond
In your twisted suitcase marked with charm
I thought I’d found a home
Won’t you come on in and be my home?
Won’t you come on in and be my home?

I’m in her graveyard without graves
Guess I bought the plot too soon
My heart is my own prophet
Preaching a major league quitter game
I saw in her red notebook
A list of names and mine crossed black
Lets just call this what it is
White sheets and lilacs

Crawl into my lamp
And turn it on
Little diamond
In your twisted suitcase marked with charm
I thought I’d found a home
Won’t you come on in
and be my home?
Won’t you come on in
Be my home

She laughed in bars of music
Strands of stories raining down
Track Name: Maria
Oh Maria won’t you come with me
I called your name around the rosary
Oh Maria you can disagree
Spinning in the stormy history

Singing oh hallelu, oh hallelu

She’s a red light runner
Two-step tease
Fire in my heart at 5 degrees
Oh Maria, did he give you pain?
I’ll try not to give you more of the same

Oh Maria did you take his call?
He quit that girl and the alcohol
Oh Maria I can set you free
I carved your name in the apple tree

Singing oh hallelu, oh hallelu

She's a red light runner
Two-step tease
Fire in my heart at 5 degrees
Oh Maria did he give you pain?
I’ll try not to give you more of the same

Singing oh hallelu, oh hallelu

Oh Maria, we can run away
I’ll pick you up in my truck on Broadway
Oh Maria would it be a crime
I paid the dues, I’ll do the time
