Lyrics

Hello, this is Maggie I just called to check in And find out if you're okay And to let you know That you have a friend And I was thinkin' about you today I know I don't always Pay attention to you I let my life get in the way But sometimes at night When I close my eyes I picture you standin' here With that smile on your face CHORUS: I found your shirt in the back of the closet Your old coffee cup in the cabinet in the den A leather glove from a long time ago Made me want to call you today and check in I would promise I would call you At least once a week But we both know That wouldn't be true Just know that you Are always in my heart You're my friend And I'll always love you Repeat CHORUS

Story

I fell in love with the West of Ireland many years ago. I miss it when I'm not there. This song is for John Tiernan of Murrisk Bay, and for all the wonderful people in the West.

Lyrics

I'm a wealthy man in Connemara I own the hills down to the sea The silver pools, the golden heather Wait there in my dreams for me So many friends in Murrisk Abbey Lie so still now by the bay But I can hear their ringing laughter In my dreams so far away CHORUS: Galway to County Mayo Holds all I'll ever need I'm a wealthy man in Connemara When I'm away I'm poor indeed I love a land that is not mine, now My heart was stolen long ago A stranger passing through these valleys And along the Garavogue Down the winding streets of Sligo A cold sea crashing to the shore Of a lonely beach on Achill Island Will I see them anymore? Repeat CHORUS

Lyrics

I've got a thing about velvet The way it feels against my skin I got a thing about you - hell...I got a thing about men I like the way they look at me With that twinkle in their eye They make me feel like a Gypsy queen Dancin' barefoot 'round the fire I've got a thing about a rushin' stream In the middle of the woods Feel the water on my bare skin So sweet and cool CHORUS: Got a thing about you You got a thing about me We got a good thing goin' Feels so wild and free Got a thing about a stormy night The rain dancin' on my skin Powerful natural forces My hair blowin' in the wind Kinda' like a hurricane Feels so out of control Like a man with a ragin' fire He's all heart and soul Repeat CHORUS

Story

After all these years of writing doleful, depressing 'folk' songs, I finally came up with a Pop song. We call it "Bubble Gum Mud."

Lyrics

How many times can I tell you that I love you? How many times can I tell you what you mean to me? How many ways can you turn your back And leave me Cryin'? How many days can I spend without you? How many hours can we be apart? How many ways can you find to hurt me And leave me cryin'? CHORUS: I count the tears that fall Tell me do I count at all? How can you be so cold and leave me cryin'? Tell me do you think of me? I don't know how you can go And leave me cryin' And leave me cryin' The time will come When I don't need you anymore The time will come When I stop tryin' It'll be your turn to count the days When I leave you cryin' When I leave you cryin' Repeat CHORUS:

CHORUS: Bread and butter and blackberry jelly Nothin' better to fill my belly Oh, man, I just gotta tell ya' Bread and butter and blackberry jelly Oh........ You can pick 'em in the day You can pick 'em at night They got little thorns but they sure do bite But if you cook 'em up just right You'll have a big ol' jar Of Blackberry jelly Repeat CHORUS You can spread it with a fork You can spread it with a knife But a big ol' spoon'll Spread it out just right I go to bed and I dream every night About bread and butter And blackberry Jelly CHORUS

CHORUS: I don't want to run away from you I just want you to look me in the face Look me in the face and tell me, Tell me, tell me what you want me to do You don't want to go anywhere You don't want to do anything You just want to sit on the couch And watch your T.V. Repeat CHORUS When you used to hold me in your arms I thought you were my world There was no better feeling in my life Than to be your girl Repeat CHORUS I don't want to hang around If you don't love me any more I don't want to talk to you on the phone I don't want to see you at my door Repeat CHORUS

Lyrics

Such a pretty day To feel this way I wish it would rain Face to face With nothing to say I wish it would rain Your bags are packed You said you're leaving I said, 'Your eyes are dry' You said, 'Looks are deceiving' I wish it would rain You said 'some words Can't be unspoken' You said 'My heart Can't be unbroken' You said 'I thought I could stay And make it through this day' God, I wish it would rain Cruel blue skies That look in your eyes I wish it would rain Standing here Like the fool I am I wish it would rain I step aside and watch you go No words, but I think you know I wish it would rain I wish it would rain I wish it would rain

Lyrics

He's a desperate man, in desperate times His young son in the back seat Now he's crossed the line God damn the people trying to rule his life He used to have a good job Used to have a wife If he can make it to Oklahoma Maybe he can set things right But there's an Amber Alert On the airwaves tonight So many wrong turns in these crooked days So easy to make mistakes, And lose your way Now he has his baby boy He has a second chance Time to leave the booze behind And be the kind of man His boy can rely on Maybe he can set things right But there's an Amber Alert On the airwaves tonight 82 Impala Out of state plates Almost like a beacon on the Interstate Primer-grey hood Citation-yellow doors Money for some fast food But not much more But back in Oklahoma He can find a job With a little bit of luck A little help from God Set him on the right track And make things right Damn that Amber Alert On his radio tonight Pulls over to the roadside Sees his son's eyes Tears rolling down his cheeks Spilling from his eyes Staring back at Daddy Through the mirror in the dark Eases to a stop And he puts the car in park First call he makes Is the hardest of the two Linda screams into the phone Lord, what did you do? The second one was easy When he called the cops Told them where to find them At the next rest stop Pulls back on the road Time to do what's right Amber Alert on the airwaves tonight The morning light turns amber On the highway tonight

Lyrics

A yodel makes the sound of the moon When it's a hundred miles away From city lights And just out of the reach of your hands A campfire sounds like castanets A river, like a woman's breath And the cowboy makes the sound of loneliness -yodel A cowboy's not a cowboy Because he wants to be He's a cowboy 'Cause he can't do nothing else A canyon walls don't reach as high A desert just don't seem as wide As the main street Of some old cattle town -yodel CHORUS: So leave some open land for the cowboy One unbroken trail One mountain to the sky Leave a pretty girl Waiting for him at the end Of some long and dusty Cattle drive -yodel A yodel makes the sound Of a lone coyote It's the way a heart sounds When it breaks The wind is like a baby's cry A freight train like a last goodbye A yodel's just a lullaby Just the way a cowboy tries To settle with the world -yodel

Lyrics

He's my singin' cowboy Sleeps every night on my couch He wants me to love him But I don't know how He writes me pretty poems Takes me out to dance He wants me to kiss him I just let him hold my hand CHORUS: And when we meet his old friends He introduces me this way He says, 'This is my girlfriend' But me, I got nothin' to say He says I'm pretty I don't know what he sees I think he's crazy But he wants to marry me He's always happy Me, I'm a mess I don't know what he sees in me But I'll marry him....I guess Repeat CHORUS 'Do you really think I'm pretty?'

Lyrics

If he hits you once He's gonna hit you again You're gonna wind up dead If you stay with him Once he crosses that line It's an open door Are you out of your mind? What are you stayin' for? Not the good of the kids This is killin' their hearts You can't keep it hidden Your world's fallin' apart CHORUS: Open that door And run, run, run Save your kids and your life And just run, run, run You can't save him He's not a real man If he hits you once He's gonna hit you again and again and again Again and again and again CHORUS: Tag - If he hits you once He's gonna hit you again and again and again Again and again and again

Lyrics

She had a powder blue Thunderbird Red Bull and cocaine A pistol underneath the seat And a dime bag of Maryjane She wasn't Miss America It wasn't like she went wrong Anna Lee was born that way Everybody said so Now, there's cops all around her house Waiting for the word A warrant there for Anna Lee And her powder blue Thunderbird The day didn't start bad Cruising out on Thomas Drive A powder blue convertible 'Good day to be alive Then some bitch on her cell phone Ran through the red light She clipped Anna's bumper ...Anna hit the brakes and turned right She caught her in a parking lot Didn't say a word Just eased to a stop In her powder blue Thunderbird The bitch put down her cell phone She said "You've made me late!" Anna shot her three times With her thirty-eight She had a powder blue Thunderbird Red Bull and cocaine A pistol lying on the seat With a dime bag of Maryjane She wasn't Miss America It wasn't like she went wrong Anna Lee was born that way Everybody said so Now there's cops all around the house Waiting for the word A warrant there for Anna Lee And her powder blue Thunderbird She outran the cop cars But not their radios She wrecked her car in Wausau That's just the way it goes She had a powder blue Thunderbird Red Bull and Cocaine A pistol lying on the grass With a dime bag of Mary Jane She wasn't Miss America It wasn't like she went wrong Anna Lee was born that way Everybody said so She had a powder blue Thunderbird She had a powder blue Thunderbird She had a powder blue Thunderbird

Lyrics

Maggie Denise, there is no one like you You're a color no painter can find You can't be mixed on a pallet No god could create you I want to be the first in line I want to be the first in line A thousand men are in love with you I can see that, I'm not blind That's why I camped out For three days on your doorstep Just to be the first in line Just to be the first in line I know who I am I'm a good man As sure as the sun in that ordinary sky But I would break any law I would shame myself Just to be the first in line I want to be the first in line I know I should be aloof Barely caught in the corner of your eye I know that is the honest truth But I want to believe in the lie I want you to feel me around you like water Some curious relic you want to find I want you to dig for me Hold me up in the light to see Make me the first in line I need to be the first in line A thousand men are in love with you I can see that, I'm not blind That's why I camped out For three days on your doorstep Just to be the first in line Just to be the first in line There is nothing else you will ever need Make me your food and your wine Your shade, your comfort, A truth to rely on Always the first in line I must be the first in line I will be there Always the first in line
