Track Name: Bay Moon
Bay moon shine on me
I'm afraid my love won't see
How lone and bound for home I'll be
Bay moon shine on me

My love was on the floor and I
Was on the evenin' train
Out on the shore my eyes could see no pain

I wanted for to find my love
Home waiting there for me
But another's arms had stole my love from me

Oh bay moon shine on me

I wanted for to find my love
Home waiting there for me
But another's arms had stole my love from me

I went alone and cried all night
Out on the raging sea
And drowned my eyes until my love won't see

Oh bay moon shine on me
Bay moon shine on me
Bay moon shine on me
Track Name: I'm Alone, I Am Lonely
I'm alone, I am lonely
I've got friends to ease my pain
But the woman I love has left me
And I don't think I can stay out of this rain

I'm afraid of the devil
He has come to ease my pain
But he runs through and hurts my body
And I don't think I can stay out of this rain

Hold on my doom
I'll come to you
Blood fills my room

I'm a fool sad and lonely
I just sealed my own dark cave
But I was hurtin' and I was angry
And I don't think I can stay out of this rain
No I don't think I can stay out of this rain
No I don't think I can stay out of this rain
Track Name: Been Down By Love
I've been down by love so long my heart don't try
I've been down by love so long my heart don't try
If you seen my love, my love you would know why
I've been down by love so long my heart don't try

I've got pins in my knees
Ever since she left me

I've been cold hard drowned by love a thousand times
I've been cold hard drowned by love a thousand times
Kicked in, dragged and bound by love on down the line
I've been cold hard drowned by love a thousand times

I've got pins in my knees
Ever since she left me
I don't look, I don't pray
I aint cared since that day

I've known love, I've known pain
Both I see, end the same
I don't look, I don't pray
I aint cared since that day

I've been down by love so long my heart don't try
I've been down by love so long my heart don't try
Track Name: Oh My Sweet Darlin'
Oh my sweet darlin'
Where'd you run to
And where'd you put your dress
You know the one dear
I had made for you
You're the one that I love the best

I met your mama, I met your pa
I met your maker down the hall
They all went through you and let me in
They won't make that mistake again

Oh my sweet darlin'
Where'd you run to
And where'd you put your dress
You know the one dear
I had made for you
You're the one that I love the best

You broke the lock on your bedroom door
Where you got out of the time before
While I was sleeping you meant to leave
But I won't let you live without me

I didn't mean love, to hurt you there
Or tear your new dress and pull your hair
But you wouldn't listen and you ran in sin
Now you won't leave me ever again
No you won't leave me ever again

Oh my sweet darlin'
Where'd you run to
And where'd you put your dress
You know the one dear
I had made for you
You're the one that I love the best
You're the one that I love the best
You're the one that I love the best
Track Name: I Don't Even Want To Think Of You
I don't even want to think of you
Don't want to sleep 'cause I might dream of you
You gave your lovin' that's for me to do
So I don't even want to think of you

You took my heart, and you pulled it on the floor with you
It fell apart, so you left for someone new

I don't even want to think of you
Don't want to sleep 'cause I might dream of you
You gave your lovin' that's for me to do
So I don't even want to think of you

You put my heart on the rails beneath your speeding train
And in the dark you left me cryin' in the rain

So I don't even want to think of you
Don't want to sleep 'cause I might dream of you
You gave your lovin' that's for me to do
So I don't even want to think of you

I don't even want to think of you
Don't want to sleep 'cause I might dream of you
You gave your lovin' that's for me to do
So I don't even want to think of you
Track Name: I See Your Lips
I see your lips talk to another
And my heart starts caving in
Evil winds they blow your kisses
Away from me and on to him

This could be the last time
You'll ever see my face
'Cause I'm not bound to meet you
In heaven's lonesome space

So when you're there
With your new love
And you take him by the head
And you pull his love inside you
Think of me and I'll be dead

This could be the last time
You'll ever see my face
'Cause I'm not bound to meet you
In heaven's lonesome space

So when you're there
With your new love
And he takes you by the head
And you taste his love inside you
Think of me and I'll be dead
Just think of me and I'll be dead
Track Name: Jeff's Lament
I can't handle knowing you are lovin' someone else
I would rather murder you than live here with myself
I aint never felt so cold or broken up in two
Your love cut a hole in me and now I'm fallin' through

Love's fallen down
Love's fallen down
Love's fallen down
If you were true, I wouldn't have laid a hand on you

Mornin' came in like a train and pulled me from my bed
I was dreamin' you were here and lovin' me instead
I thought when you married me your heart would be true
But your love cut a hole in me and now I'm fallin' through

(You shouldn't have run from me but...)

Love's fallen down
Love's fallen down
Blood is on the ground
If you were true, I wouldn't have laid a hand on you

If you were true, and you didn't do...I wouldn't have laid a hand on you
Track Name: Baby You Know It's True
Baby you know it's true
I was all in love with you
But you did things you said weren't true
And I will always stay in love with you

Baby don't leave so soon
I'm your old time lonesome moon
And you alone can seal my tomb
But I will always stay in love with you

Time is all I ever did with you
And idle eyes will only make you feel the way I do

So baby don't be untrue
I don't know what I would do
You say you're layin' with someone new
But I will always stay in love with you
And I will always stay in love with you
Yeah I will always stay in love with you
Track Name: Long Gone Home
Long gone home why did you stray on me
I'm as sad and alone as the whole human scene

I was drivin' on a line
I was hopin' for a friend to find
But my memories fell behind
A hole in the wall

I was ridin' on a train
I was sleepin' to the sound of rain
When I woke up with the same
Feelin' of fall, and no one at all

Long gone home why did you stray on me

I was runnin' for the door
Where my old love used to lie on the floor
But my head fell just before I made it at all

And lord knows I was true
But now I've lost you too
And I can't go to bed now without missing home
And feeling alone

Long gone home why did you stray on me
I'm as sad and alone as the whole human scene
I'm as sad and alone as the whole human scene
I'm as sad and alone as the whole human scene
Track Name: On The Road (Not Again)
And along comes a bomb
That blows your head on
And you're never as good as you wanted to be

But she don't know nothin' about where I've been
And I couldn't take it to break her again
The harder the fallin's the weight of your sins
So I'm on the road here with me

And the road that you're on is long
And the feeling still lingers
And you're never as good as you wanted to be

But she don't know nothin' about where I've been
And I couldn't take it to break her again
The harder the fallin's the weight of your sins
So I'm on the road here with me

And along comes a bomb
That blows your head on
And you're never as good as you wanted to be

But she don't know nothin' about where I've been
And I couldn't take it to break her again
The harder the fallin's the weight of your sins
So I'm on the road here with me

But she don't know nothin' about where I've been
And I couldn't take it to break her again
The harder the fallin's the weight of your sins
So I'm all alone here with me
