Track Name: Come Down Easy
light as a feather in the circling wind
looking up to heaven for to see you again
come down easy like a sinking stone
wings of the angels gonna carry me home

i've been waiting in the riverbed
all night long

the full moon is rising as i open my eyes
i feel i'm dying i can see the light
swing low baby and sing me a song
circle around me like the ring of the sun

i've been waiting in the riverbed
all night long

I've been drinking muddy water
feeding on the fire
looking for a rider through the lightning and the thunder
waiting on the angel band to take me away
take me up to london
take me to spain

come down easy honey let me ride
swing low sweet baby land by my side

the gates fly open now my time has come
i hear the angels singing my journey's begun
hold me in your wings and take to the sky
don't look down and don't say goodbye

i've been waiting in the riverbed
all night long
Track Name: Blood, Flowers, Fire, & Gems
she can't stay here with him
or else she's gonna kill him
don't wanna go home because i know it's not the end
can't take you with me and i won't let you go
can't go to california because i don't want to die

dead leaves and ashes are falling like rain
i'm leaning out the window waiting on a friend
she's out there in the forest talking to a man
she met a long time ago on a back country road

she's covered in patterns and silver and gold
turquoise and rubies hang from her neck
been down such a long time don't know where she's going
god only knows all those places she's been

i can't wait to see her and feel her again
something inside of me knows it's the end
i'll be here waiting standing by the window
she's out there in the forest looking for a friend
Track Name: Runaways
out on the western line
done all i could do to scrape a dime
i raised my glass up high put that poison in mind
until i found you

i done all that i can do now i'm coming home to you tonight

i'll be on a midnight train
tell my friends forget my name
if you see my long long pa
tell him i'm standing tall the way he wished i would

i done all that i can do now i'm coming home to you tonight

runaway, run away
i done all that i can do
don't say i didn't try

highway number nine
done all i could do to pass the time
i was driving blind headlights in my eyes
until i found you

i done all that i can do now i'm coming home to you tonight

up on the northern run
killed a man and i took off with his gun
i was looking for a little fun wasn't seeing none
until i found you

i done all that i can do now i'm coming home to you tonight

runaway, run away
i done all that i can do
don't say i didn't try

lost in the georgia pines
i was just looking for a sign
i eased up on the reigns and took off toward the plains
until i found you

i done all that i can do now i'm coming home to you tonight

last i heard you were living there
they said your eyes were full of fear
the story wasn't clear just up and disappeared
until i found you

i done all that i can do now i'm coming home to you tonight

runaway, run away
i done all that i can do
don't say i didn't try
Track Name: Gypsy Song
carolina, carolina
you lost your cool
you used to be a gypsy
now you're playing the fool

carolina, carolina
you must've lost your head
carolina, carolina
bet you wish that i was dead
but if you'd let me love you one time
you might dig just what i said

carolina, carolina
you could be mine
carolina, carolina
did you lose your mind
you used to be a gypsy
i still see it in your eyes
Track Name: If You Want Me To
hey baby you're a pretty thing
gonna buy you a diamond ring
i would buy you anything
if you want me to

hey mama you're long and tall
sleep in the kitchen with your feet in the hall
don't do nothing at all
just running around all day

hey baby where you gonna go
show me where the wind don't blow
hey maybe i'll come too
if you want me to

hey honey where'd you get those eyes
something like a starry sky
shine so bright it makes me fly
all the way to you

carolina's a pretty good ways
but i'll take any job that pays
tell me where to sign my name
and where to catch that train

hey baby where you gonna go
show me where the wind don't blow
hey maybe i'll come too
if you want me to

hey honey you're pretty fine
let me show you what's on my mind
good lovin's hard to find
i'm standing in your way

take me with you when you go
don't care much for being alone
just sitting here getting stoned
waiting on the telephone

hey baby where you gonna go
show me where the wind don't blow
hey maybe i'll come too
if you want me to
Track Name: Bay At Night
smoked away my mind
drank up all my wine
but the whiskey is flowing still
let's walk across the bridge and watch the sky explode
a thousand shooting stars and thousand passing cars
to the other side we'll crawl
stumbling and falling
hang above the trees looking down into the sea
we'll make it just in time to watch the moon fall down
hear it hit the surface and marvel as it drowns

floating through the sky
i've never been so high
except for maybe that one time last year
thought i might have died
hell i might have even cried
i can remember it all so clearly
but that was just a scene and this is just a dream
surely i'll wake up sometime tomorrow
open up my eyes and greet the sunny skies
everything is still inside my window
perhaps i'll be surprised to find that i'm alive
or maybe i'll just die and disappear
