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:

Lyrics

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

Lyrics

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's 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 Y

ou 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 S

he 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
