Track Name: Under Gypsy Moon
I've got the sun she's got the moon
she's got the fire like a gypsy
I'm on the run she's running too
everyone's hiding from something

she's a sidewalk angel she runs with the wind
all the waves dance to her footsteps
the full moon reflects off the rose in her hair
and enters my mind with a vengeance

treasure surrounds me alight from within
she covers my body with flowers
crystalline color cascades in my eye
i'd have no visions without her

lying awake for sleep to come down
but only the rain obliges
explosions of laughter it drives me so mad
desire for nothing but silence

-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-<>-

under gypsy moon
life don't get sweeter than this
my heart is bleeding in perfect color
mixing with the mist
one step ahead of the sun
just some gypsys on the run
Track Name: If I Ever Find a Winning Hand
the man on the moon is singing the blues this morning
its 3am and he's howling for his darlin'
she's down on the ground ringing her clothes in the sunshine
wasting time just laughing to keep from crying

if i ever find that winning hand gonna buy you a ticket to the promised land
but if i come down with nothing to show
mark my words i'll take you home

the queen is getting drunk thinking about leaving
the king's on the ground passed out and bleeding
the fool's in the corner jumping for his freedom
by and by the night will come and lead them away

if i ever find that winning hand gonna buy you a ticket to the promised land
but if i come down with nothing at all
ill be standing still the dice will roll

i've always been a gambling man
roll them bones with both of my hands
might get lucky i might get killed
might get busted but I'm rolling still

if i ever find that winning hand gonna buy you a ticket to the promised land
but if i come down with nothing to show
mark my words i'll take you home

johnny's got the banker at the point of his knife
they both got kids they both got a wife
only one cat is gonna make it out alive
johnny's going away for the rest of his life

if i ever find that winning hand gonna buy you a ticket to the promised land
but if i come down with nothing but tears
it's gonna worry my soul all of my years

i never played for nothing but thrills
one mans pleasure is another mans will
some like water and some like gin
the other drinks whiskey because he knows he'll never win

if i ever find that winning hand gonna buy you a ticket to the promised land
but if i come down with nothing to show
mark my words i'll take you home
Track Name: Finn's Redemption
goin in the river gonna get baptized
goin in the river kiss my sins goodbye
carryin a suitcase can't bare this burden no more
burn in my belongings bury my clothes at the shore
shed my skin of where I've been
let this rushing tide take me down
let that water roll me
praise the lord I've been found

tell annie not to worry gonna get that diamond ring
no more trouble mama I'm a changed man can't you see
I'm working for the train line say ill see some money soon
wintertimes a struggle but ill be home in june

goin in the river gonna get baptized
in a river made of whiskey drown my cares goodbye
workin all my day away lets take a night out on the town
life is for to celebrate so lets do another round
stomp our feet on down the street howling bloody howls
breaking glass on the bandstand til the lawmen drag me out

annie dont ya worry gonna get that diamond ring
no more trouble mama I'm a changed man you'll see
I'm doing time in county and its driving me insane
i aint got no money but i love you just the same

annie im in trouble they got me at the state line
with a suitcase full of silver they knew it wasn't mine
they took me back to county to make me walk the line
twenty years and counting is an awful long time
praying lord have mercy send me one good sign
tell annie not to worry she's always on my mind

maybe ill get lucky I've got angels watching me
no more trouble mama I'm a changed man can't you see
annie don't you worry gonna get that diamond ring
no more trouble mama I'm a changed man you'll see
Track Name: The Way You Move
one foot in the grave my hands in my pockets
the other foot's dancing and i just can't stop it
been feeling this way for so long

i wanna fly but i just keep sinking
my mind wanders and the birds keep singing
got a pain in my heart
but i know you're gonna set me free

-<>-<>-<>-<>-
its the way you move
you know it sounds so sweet
makes me want to get up out my seat and groove
they say the business of love is to drown in the sea
so baby, why not you and me?
-<>-<>-<>-<>-

tell me baby what you think of me
i've got eyes but i just can't see
i want to know you've got to show
just tell it to me

sometimes I get lost in my own mind
with the beauty of the world that i left behind
i want to start over
just give me one more try

-<>-<>-<>-<>-
its the way you move
you know it sounds so sweet
makes me want to get up out my seat and groove
they say the business of love is to drown in the sea
so baby, why not you and me?
-<>-<>-<>-<>-

keep on singing and keep on growing
put your soul in your words
and keep the thing going
tell it like it is and you can't do no one wrong

-<>-<>-<>-<>-
its the way you move
you know it sounds so sweet
makes me want to get up out my seat and groove
they say the business of love is to drown in the sea
so baby, why not you and me?
