Do Be Do 04:04
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

Change 03:44
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

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

Lustre Pearl 03:11
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

Maria 03:06
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
