Sad seeds, deep weeds, bad blood’s got a hold on me Man down, small town, steal me while the wind blows free Hey, what’s falling down we’ll leave on the ground, leave on the ground Hey, what’s falling down we’ll leave on the ground, leave on the ground Late night, stage light, caught fire in the Tennessee heat Last shot, oh God, burned down but they still sang sweet
2.
Darling’ don’t miss me Promise you’ll write me on the day that you fall apart Strap on them fighting boots The ones that brother left for you with a handwritten note on the counter top He’s rearranging, he’s a changing score A sweet river raging, a wake upon the shore A seam slowly breaking, a secret we’ve never known before So if you scream and shout, Your voice will echo loud over busted bone and fields of dust and dirt I will tilt my head, to the west my friend I will hear your every word

Summer Seeds 04:36
Part of me is sewn to the silver sea, softly stitched by your hand We’d sway and swing by the breath of a begging breeze Hip to hip, hand to hand Part of me is bent to the open fields, to the broken skyline Nestled deep in the bed where the winter sleeps Tied and tethered to that Illinois line Do you know when the wind’s gonna blow? Lie to me if you can The softest soil where the summer seeds grow? Lead me if you can If you can Part of me is building majesty with a gold hammer and nail Part of me is cursing the afterlife Hell bound hounds like fire on my tail

Stand by the tracks of the union pacific The land that I’ve wanted to leave Oh ten years back when the blue river lifted the burdens that buried me deep And lead me on my way, on my way, on my way home Stand by the tracks of the union pacific The land that I’ve wanted to know Oh I smell those troubled souls and the smoke from their kisses, the cold on their skin and their bones They lead me on my way, on my way, on my way home What I was missing, oh what I was missing, now, I’ve figured out, oh I’ve figured out What I was missing, oh what I was missing, now, I’ve found somehow, found some how Stand by the tracks of the union pacific Waiting on the other side Oh those lonesome roads are searching for the missing highways Those empty fields look good dressed in white
5.
Well I don’t ask questions for answers I don’t want to know I’d rather pretend it was me you wanted the most So I’ll slip you a drink and I’ll put on that blue Sunday dress Cause you do better lying when your drunk, when I’m pretty I guess Don’t you give me your reasons About what’s right or what’s true I don’t care what suit you’ve been wearing I look better on you Well I’ve only loved a man once, a boy I suppose With the rest I’ve stood at the fence, I’ve scratched at the door So I’ll dance with the demons, I’ll blow that steam and when I get close I’ll do better lying when I side with that old lonesome ghost To the sun to the moon to whoever you choose To the preacher, the saints, Jesus Christ One day I’ll come clean, like the angels I’ll sing, trade these blue jeans for clothes dipped in white But for tonight…

Out of Time 03:52
It’s a straight shot west with the street top burning Rolling steel, at 5 in the morning the stars ran out of their firey flames Started spitting’ up the blacktop, maybe the plans we grew were all made to bury But I’m hanging on to that rusty chain Riding on a thin black wire On a thick black night Running out of nerve, out of time, To get it right When the seeds I swore were meant to grow, stay beneath the stubborn soil, Do I wait upon the sun and rain? Do I shut my mouth, hold my tongue, and let the hours fall upon my palms? Wish you didn’t have such a hard heart to break
