Track Name: Fables
Fables and our lies
Humble little tries
Broken drawn out cries

Out here it is getting hot, dear
Did I ever love you?
Think about it.

Thirsty, wild, weak and willing
I prepared to love you
Didn’t happen.

Oooo Oooo

I ran to the lonesome desert
To escape the coldness I created.

But the heat waves visions in the dust, babe
Memories of heartache has me silent.

Fables and our lies
Our humble little tries
Broken drawn out cries

Why don’t I plan me a visit
Come see how your doin’
Would you mind that?

That’ll give me just enough time
To sink back in your mind as I’m leavin’

Oooo Oooo

Though I rose up in your eastern sky
It’s to the west, I’ll be settin’

Don’t get down, it’s just how I am wound
I don’t belong where I’m needed

Fables and our lies
Our humble little tries
Broken drawn out cries

What you said, what you said you’d be
When you said you weren’t good for me
What you said, what you said you’d be
When you said it, you set me free

Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo

Fables and our lies
Our humble little tries
Broken drawn out cries
Track Name: Yer Gonna Be (My Lovin' Man)
I ran into you again today
You’d think I’d have something more clever to say
Cause you don’t know, you don’t know the way I see you
It’s a silent dizzy thing

But who knows, who knows
Perhaps the same thought crossed your mind
I wonder how many more times it will take
For me to go out on the line and say

CHORUS
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
And I’m gonna be your lovin’ woman baby
Doo doo doo
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
And I’m gonna be your lovin’ woman baby
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo

No one compares with you
You’re so pure and oh so true
Well I admire all that you do
And I just wanna be close to you, oh

So pardon my longing gaze
But I’m sure this is so far from a phase
It seems our paths align our fate
And so I think it’s time we get this all straight

CHORUS
Track Name: Sly Stranger
The fox said to the crow, “Pretty bird, sing me your new song”
So “falalalala lalala”
Lesson learned, don’t trust a flatterer
Never a flatterer
They’re out for your bread, your bed, maybe your head

Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no
The fox fell in a well, but he did not ask for help, no
He’s too smart, much too smart
So the fox said to the goat, “Soon there’ll be a drought”
Without a doubt, that fool jumped down
That fool came down

Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no
Oh Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no
And in the skin of a sheep, the fox did creep
Strolled with the herd, never said no word
But soon he did attack
He stabbed them in the back
Looks deceive, be slow to believe

In Sly Strangers, don’t trust em, no
Oh Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no
Everyday they are waiting for you
If you look away, they will take it from you
Don’t trust the fox that knocks
Don’t trust the fox who’s knocking at your door
He’s at your door
Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no
Oh Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no
Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no
Track Name: Treat Her
Oh take time for your lady
Hold the door for your girl
Make surprises for that lady
Even if she’s easy to please

Don’t walk in front of your lady
You don’t know what’s creepin’ up behind
Most of all just love your lady
And make her laugh when the day is done

Honey pie, sure you’re nice, but if you want her don’t drive her crazy
Just treat her like a lady
You’re the apple of her eye, but all she does is cry
Don’t be so lazy, just treat her like a lady

Well maybe you’ll find that she’s gone, walked out of your life
In the arms of another, but maybe before she’s gone, walked out the door
You’ll learn to treat her right

Oh, treat her right, oh you know you gotta treat her, treat her right
Treat her right, oh you know you gotta treat her, treat her right baby
Treat her right

So take the time to tell your lady
You’ll be the rock upon her shore
Cause when you really love a lady
The life you lead will mean so much more
Track Name: Hometown
There’s plenty of room for dreamin’
As you’re starin’ across an empty field
It makes it hard to settle
When you feel there’s something more

I won’t need a map or any road sign
To get me where I’m goin’
I know I’ll find the way
I hear it callin’ for me, singin’ out my name

CHORUS
Do you choose your hometown?
Or does it choose you?
Will you find the place that makes you feel brand new?
It’s where you fit right in
Where you belong
Cause when you feel at home, you can’t go wrong
Well it needs me and I need my hometown

Some call their house their home
Some call their heart their home
Some call family, or friends, or dogs
Some call their car their home the road, or the air
Well where’s your home?
What makes your home?
You choose your own PO Box, your own postal code
It’s your hometown

CHORUS
Track Name: Rock Bottom
Sophie says she’s lonely
Derek, he is broke
Jill and Tommy ain’t got no mommy
And Maria she has no hope

John and Lea got married
Oh so typically June
Lea walked in to find Josie with him
And now it’s August and they are through

We’ve all problems see
And we’ve all had therapy
We’ve hit rock bottom multiple times
And still find ourself at the back of the line

Ricky woke up in the same clothes
He’s worn for weeks in a row
His brother Cleo stole all of his doe
And now he stumbles down Nolensville Road

Lisa, she’s hearing the voices
And claims that the government knows
She writes them a letter to say that she’s better
And tells them that they need to go

We’ve all problems see
And we’ve all had therapy
We’ve hit rock bottom multiple times
And still find ourself at the back of the line
Track Name: Open Roads
Turning my head, lookin’ every direction
No, I never needed your lousy protection
I close my eyes and I run, I run, I run
No one will find me coming undone

Oh Ohhh Oh Oh Ohhh

No matter how much time you’ve killed, you claim to know me still
But you never did, no, you never did oh and you never will
So I’m cuttin’ down all the limbs that kept me reachin’ for you
Kept me feelin’ so blue, kept you so untrue

Oh Ohhh Oh Oh Ohhh

Now I can’t recall just how I felt at all
Oh no I can’t recall just how I felt at all
Oh no I can’t recall how I felt, I felt at all

Ohhh Open Roads, Ohh
Open roads, open roads for the willing
It’s all a test, you gotta trust what you’re feeling
Oh open roads, open roads for the searching
Go on ahead, you best get to looking

For those open roads, ohhh
They’ll never tie you down, They’ll never tie you down
They’ll never tie you down, They’ll never tie you down
Track Name: Take Me To The Country
Tell me ‘bout the good times that came before
How the world was booming when you got back from war
You lived out in the country, never locked the door
And no one feared their brother, cause God fed the poor

How many revolutions does it take to make a change?
How many changes will be enough for this revolving game?
I told you once and I tell you twice, there’s more bad than good
Cause we’re heavy at the top, when the guns don’t stop
The choice ain’t choice yours, no the choice ain’t yours
The choice ain’t yours

How am I to survive in city life with all their lights and all their lies and
I will survive on the country side with my apple pies and blue skies

If you take me, I will take you (I will take you)
If you take me, I will take you (I will take you)
If you take me, I will take you
Take me to the country, throw me back in time
Take me to the country, I’ve got a simpler time in mind

How am I to survive in city life with all their lights and all their lies and
I will survive on the country side with my apple pies and blue skies
