Walk Tall

Sunday morning is hanging over me
Reputation…seems to follow me
Jacktales, derailed sometimes I feel reckless
Words are nameless, 
to whom it may concern here

My life to waste tonight I'm everywhere I go…
I tell the world around me, that I do fine despite me
And on and on I’m walkin’ tall, and that's alright with me

Walk Tall.  Ahhh ooohhhhhh

Starlight dancin’ with Venus on my mind
Morning after the stories just keep flying
Untamed, unsaved sometimes I feel helpless
Red eyes melting in the time that I got left here
My life to waste tonight is everywhere I go….
I tell the world around me, that I do fine despite me
And on and on I'm walking tall, and that's alright with me

A word to my accusers, I don't need your approval
and on and on I'm walking tall, and I'm alright with me

Jacktales, derailed, and sometimes I feel reckless
Words are nameless, to whom it may concern here

My life to waste tonight I'm everywhere I go…
I tell the world around me, that I do fine despite me
And on and on I’m walkin’ tall, and I'm alright with me

Turn the world around me, and Heaven will still find me
And on and on I'm walking tall, cause I'm alright with me

Walk tall.  Ahooooo

Tolerate Me

You like me in the morning 
You like me thru the day 
You like me more than anyone 
has ever liked to date
Can’t show the world around me 
how happy we could be
I love you but you tolerate me

Can’t put my finger on it
it’s nothing that you say
Should I assume impending doom or go the other way
And show the world around us 
how funny it could be  
I love you but you tolerate me

And now we’re dancin’ to the left 
Dancin’ to the right 
Like the Mississippi river on an Alabama night
Dancin’ to the left…dancin’ to the right 
Hearts in forward motion (fallin) back and outta sight

You like me at ground level
You like me high above 
and all I gotta say I need your likes to turn to love
Two letters I see changing, insert an o and v  
cause I love you but you tolerate me.

Now we’re dancin’ to the left 
Dancing to the right 
Like the Mississippi river on an Alabama night
Dancin’ to the left…dancin’ to the right 
Hearts in forward motion (fallin) back and outta sight

Tap down the the middle for me (hey) that’ll be just fine
And it’s a little to the left 
it’s little to the right 
Somewhere up the middle 
Is where we meet tonight.

And now I’m talking, you’re walking
Got moments when it’s working so steady
And then it rumbles, it crumbles
it’s really tough to know when you’re ready

Now we’re dancin’ to the left 
Dancin’ to the right 
like the Mississippi river on an Alabama night
Dancin’ to the left
Dancin’ to the right 
Hearts in forward motion 
back and outta sight

Tap down the the middle for me (hey) that’ll be just fine
And it’s a little to the left and a little to the the right 
Hearts in forward motion back and outta sight

Dancin to the left 
Dancing to the right 

Ellie

Well late last night and the walls came tumbling down
They fell down round me while the angels gave a shout
Not a stone left standing in that three point landing town 
God Almighty and me we make a crowd

Not the money, not the fame 
Not the million other things you’d think 
It’s Ellie coming home tonight 
It’s gonna be sunshine in the middle of the night
I can say at best, I’m a mess, till Ellie comes home

Happy is the man that breaks the chains of strife
And walking thru the fire and in my bare feet just feels right
With seven alligators and a huge tornado in sight
God Almighty and me we like to fight

Not the money, not the fame 
Not the million other things you’d think 
It’s Ellie coming home tonight 
Gonna be sunshine in the middle of the night
I can say at best, I’m a mess, till Ellie comes home
I can say at best, I’m a mess, till Ellie comes home

Star Boy

Your in trouble when you get home 
Did you cause a fight at the fall of Rome
When the sun got covered by the passing moon 
Did you go too far with your friends from school

Think about the things you’ve done in your room
Some needed time for raging youths

Whatever happened to you Star Boy 
Did you call and there was no one home
Have you been trying to reach out Star Boy
To tell us that were not alone

If you had vision but still still felt blind
If you ruled the world and still felt shy
If you gave nothing and and it seemed  too much
Couldn’t add one day to its occupants

Think about the things you see,
then its gone the son will rise the sun will fall

Whatever happened to you Star Boy 
Did you call and there was no one home
Have you been trying to reach out Star Boy
To tell us that were not alone

Your still trouble for the way you pace 
You run too slow for  the human race
While you’re out talking with the goons in town 
Better time is spent tryin’ to get us home.

Whatever happened to you Star Boy 
Did you call and there was no one home
Have you been trying to reach out Star Boy
To tell us that were not alone

Whatever happen to you star boy 
Where ever did we run and hide
Have you been trying to reach out Star Boy
Heaven in the stars tonight

Mystic County

My hands are tied my feet are dragged 
I’m going home
The restless sins that pulled me in 
I’m going home
My destination somewhere outta view 
Population the broken and abused

Mystic County I’m coming after you
No more disappointment in everything I do 
and in Mystic County gonna make a few friends 
Tonight I ride through your golden gates

There's blood inside the moon tonight I'm gone
And yesterday wont go away leave me alone  
Take me further somewhere in the clear 
Destination anywhere but here

Mystic County I’m coming after  you
No more disappointment in everything I do 
and in Mystic County gonna make a few friends 
Tonight I ride through your golden gates

​I was lost. I got tossed.
Mystic County gonna make a few friends 
Tonight I ride in your golden gates
(Instrumental)

Now my hands untied and the rest just fine I rode on. 
And the restless sins that pulled me in left me alone 
My hesitation kept it outa view 

Mystic County I’m coming back to you 

Mystic County I’m coming after to you
No more disappointment in everything I do 
and in Mystic County gonna make a few friends 
Tonight I ride through your golden gates

I Love Your Everything

Well starring down trouble on a Friday night, 
Singing out Dylan and drinking wine, I love the way you walk
So I made a big list about you and me, 
There’s more we love than disagree, 
Like wings upon the dove
Take all your troubles and make them mine
A lasting moment  in our lives.

I just love the way you walk, love the way you talk to me late at night 
saying the things that I sure like
I just love the way you smile tell you all the while 
there's too much to list, I love your everything

Jump down living like sweet perfume, 
Heads all spinning as she walks the room 
I love the way she sighs.

Barefoot loving in a gental breeze,
keeps me crawling on my hands and knees
thank God to be alive
Take all your troubles and make them mine
fingernail biting the turpentine

I just love the way you walk, love the way you talk to me late at night 
saying the things that I sure like
I just love the way you smile tell you all the while 
there's too much to list, I love your everything

Take all your troubles and make them mine,
​a lasting moment in our lives. 

I just love the way you walk, love the way you talk to me late at night 
saying the things that I sure like
I just love the way you smile tell you all the while 
there's too much to list, I love your everything

Sure done searching for the Holy Grail, 
Talk about life in great detail, wings upon the dove 
Still starring down trouble on a Friday night, 
singing out Dylan with my lovely wife, just glad to be alive

And all my  baggage suits and ties, faded in your lovely eyes


I just love the way you walk, love the way you talk to me late at night 
saying the things that I sure like
I just love the way you smile tell you all the while 
there's too much to list, I love your everything

The way you eat and sleep and cuddle and fall, 
Way too much to list them all, I love your everything
