TOMORROW
 

How long till the river runs blue?
How long till we’re sorry?
How long can the blood stain my hands?
Scrubbing with my might like Lady M 
And I’m singing

 

Out damn spot 

 

And tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow 
Nothing seems to matter even sorrow 
And tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow 

How long till you unlock the cage?
How long till their free from their pain?
How long can the blood stain the hands
Of greedy men with greedy thoughts in their head?

 

Mmmm


And tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow 
Nothing seems to matter even sorrow 
And tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow

 

 

TETON

 

I got off at Jackson Hole

There was a nice strong man in a blue strong coat

He said I’ll help you

 

Mama said, “beware of nice men

Funny thing is they never seem to listen”

 

I could take you up to Teton or show you Gros Ventre

I’m a man who knows his station and I won’t be around for long

 

These low lying valleys contain river and streams

If Lewis and Clark could navigate why can’t we?

 

Oooo

 

I got lost Coeur D’alene

There was a miner man willing to share his name

He said I’ll love you

 

I could find a lot of silver and buy you the fineries

I’m a man who knows his station and I won’t be around past spring

 

These low lying valleys contain river and streams

If Lewis and Clark could navigate why can’t we?

 

Oooo

 

I got lost in Calgary

 

PORTLAND

 

This place looks nothing like where I come from

The trees they turn later, the sky comes undone

We drove all night through Couer d'Alene, and I woke with the sun

Onwards to Portland, Oregon (hmmm)

 

I just want to leave to say that I did

Nothing against all the green fields of my childhood

But I'm drivin' through all the same places that I used to

I'm gone to Portland, Oregon (hmmm)

 

(chorus)

If am lost, I am lost on purpose

Please God don't find me

If I am running, I am running away all on my own

I get lost, I get lost, I get lost

 

Nobody cares if the foundation's cracked

As long as it looks good when somebody asks

Yet I've got a man who loves me despite what I lack

We're goin' to Portland, Oregon if anyone asks

 

TRY 

 

You’re never ready, it’s never right

And a person could never change your life

Then you ask me to take a drive

And we end up with cop’s flashing lights

 

It’s eleven fifty-nine

Wait a minute, take your time

 

Chorus

 

Yes I’ll try, do my best

Can’t promise I’ll always be kind

But I’ll try, do my best

Can’t promise we’ll always see eye to eye

But I’ll try


 

I’ll always want you, even when I’m old

Take my hand have this heart to hold

And you’ll still ask me, to take a drive

And we’ll end up with the cops flashing lights.

 

It’s eleven fifty-nine

Wait a minute, take your time


 

(Chorus)

 

JULIA
 

Julia lays in the sunshine and waits

Out by the water on the Bay

And the sun goes down, and the sun goes down

Where is her lover?

The day is breaking over the water

 

Julia moves to the city to find

A new set of memories to clear her mind

And the sun goes down, and the sun goes down

She won’t find any other

Julia is hung up her lover


 

And oh the time passes slowly

And oh God she is lonely

And oh they all say that

Time, time heals the sting


 

Julia skips down the sidewalk it’s spring

Spring in the city blooming trees

And she walks alone

And she laughs alone

The lady is lovely

Julia won’t wait for anybody

 

WILDWOOD FLOWER
 

Oh I'll twine with my mingles and waving black hair

With the rose so red and the lilies so fair

And the myrtles so bright with the emerald dew

The pale and the leader and eyes look like blue

 

Oh she taught me to love her and promised to love

And to cherish me over all others above

How my heart is now wondering no misery can tell

She left me no warning no words of farewell

 

Yes she taught me to love her and call me her flower

That was blooming to cheer her through life's dreary hour

Oh I long to see her and regret the dark hour

She's gone and neglected her pale wildwood flower

 

OLD COUNTRY

 

Wish you could have stuck around this year

Spring came sooner than we thought

If you’d seen all those leaves turn green

You might night have felt so lost

 

Old country, why did you let him leave?

 

Working longer in the fields these days

With nothing to hold on to

Except a Mama laying flat in a daze

Praying and pleading for you

 

Old country, why did you let him leave?

 

If You See Her, Say Hello

 

If you see her, say hello she might be in Tangier

She left here last early spring is livin' there, I hear

Say for me that I'm alright though things get kind of slow

She might think that I've forgotten her don't tell her it isn't so

 

We had a falling-out like lovers often will

To think of how she left that night it still brings me a chill

And though our separation it pierced me to the heart

She still lives inside of me and we’ll never be apart

 

If you get close to her kiss her for the kid

Who always respected her for doin' what she did

Oh, I know it had to be that way it was written in the cards

Though the bitter taste still lingers on it all came down so hard

 

I see a lot of people as I make the rounds

And I hear her name as I go from town to town

And I've never gotten used to it i've just learned to turn it off

Either I'm too sensitive or else I'm gettin' soft

 

Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past

I know every scene by heart it all went by so fast

If she's passin' back this way I'm not that hard to find

Tell her she can look me up if she's got the time
