Honey To a Bear

 

Back in the woods out in the muck

You said somethin’ sweet we were gettin’ in the truck

So I giggled and I wiggled just a little like I didn’t care

But a little bit of love from you is like honey to a bear

 

Back at the house out in the yard

You saddled up to me and you kissed me hard

So I shivered and I quivered not a little no it isn’t fair

How a little bit of love from you is like honey to a bear

Oh now you don’t have to do that much to please me

Honey all your love goes down so easy

 

Out on the town sittin’ at the bar

She was gettin’ too close and lookin’ for a spar

So I shoved her and I gloved her didn’t hug her no I don’t share

Cause a little bit of love from you is like honey to a bear

 

Back at the crib snuggled up tight

You leaned in to me cause you didn’t wanna fight

So I snuggled and I cuddled and I huddled no I wouldn’t dare

When a little bit of love from you is like honey to a bear

Yeah a little bit of love from you is like honey to a bear

 

Back in the woods out in the muck

You said somethin’ sweet we were gettin’ in the truck

So I giggled and I wiggled just a little like I didn’t care

But a little bit of love from you is like honey to a bear

Yeah a little bit of love from you is like honey to a bear
 

Lost wIth You 

I wanna get lost with you ride around all night

Then sleep all day in the warm sunlight

Gonna have a lot to say with nothin’ to do

Roll the windows down get lost with you

Wanna see a beach sunrise resting on your chest

When the day is done gonna watch it set

Wind in our hair sand in our shoes

On a beach somewhere get lost with you

 

Wanna get high and never come back down

So lost in love we may never be found

Gonna have a lot to say with nothin’ to do

Roll the windows down and get lost with you

 

Wanna get lost with you here in our bed

Where the lonely nights are gone for good

Gonna have lotsa fun twisting in the sheets

And when we’re done gonna watch you sleep

 

Wanna get high and never come back down

So lost in love we may never be found

Wanna have a lot to say with nothin’ to do

All alone tonight and get lost with you

 

Wanna get high and never come back down

So lost in love we may never be found

Wanna have a lot to say with nothin’ to do

All alone tonight get lost with you

Wanna have a lot to say with nothin’ to do

All alone tonight get lost with you

Sugartown

I heard your daddy died

And your mama moved away

I keep up on you from a distance

Has it been twenty years

Since we walked across that stage

Where I’m now I don’t feel different

I’m still growin’ up and learnin’ how to stay between the lines

And I can’t help but think of you sometimes

 

In this Sugartown where we were raised

Sun comes up on the sugarcane

Work work work in the red hot sun

Don’t call it off till the job gets done

I moved on you stayed behind

Still somehow that don’t feel right

From this sugartown

 

They still got the factory

And the levee on the lake

And your brother’s fixin’ cars just off the highway

Now there’s a big box store

Where we used to go and park

If I could I’d have it my way

They’re still raisin’ cane there on Friday night

Them Okeechobee boys still lookin’ for a fight

 

And 27 rolls like a beacon in the night

Back to the coast and on down the line

Away from this sugartown

Sugartown

This sugartown where we were raised

Sun comes up on the sugarcane

Work work work in the red hot sun

Don’t call it off till the job gets done

Sugartown

Sugartown

Half Crazy

You can try to hold her

Give her kisses sweet

Maybe get you what you want

Never get you what you need

You’d have to be half crazy

To think it’d work out fine

You can be her man try to be hold her hand

But it won’t be mine

 

Where you gonna go when the wind blows cold

And you’re standin’ in the rain

It ain’t the memory of her kisses

That’s drivin’ you insane

You’d have to be half crazy

To think it’d work out fine

You can be her man try to be hold her hand

But it won’t be mine

 

Now I can see you told her

That I was just a friend

Now you’re in here with her

And I’m in here with him

She gives you kisses on your fingers

Kisses on your shoulder

You turn back towards the band reachin’ for her hand

But you keep lookin’ over

 

Where you gonna go when the wind blows cold

And you’re standin’ in the rain

If ain’t the memory of her kisses

That’s drivin’ you insane

You’d have to be half crazy

To think it’d work out fine

You can be her man try to hold her hand

But it won’t be mine

You can be her man try to hold her hand

But it won’t be mine

SawmIller's Daughter

Way back in the swamp where the crickets chomp

And the deer and the catfish play

Lived a sawmill man on a piece of land

Raising his family

As a little girl he was my whole world

My daddy worked hard every day

Chase the hogs mill the logs 

Make that sawblade spin

My daddy was a workin’ man back in high water

And I’m just a product of the man Sawmiller’s Daughter

 

When you’re out on the land loggin’ the strand

It’s a struggle just to survive

Workin’ the saw and prayin’ to God

That you make it outta there alive

When the cypress bawl’s it’s a hell of a fall

You better get back and be still

Load it on up and take it on home

To that old sawmill

My daddy was a workin’ man back in high water

And I’m just a product of the man Sawmiller’s Daughter

 

Back at the house we’re throwin’ the slabs

With the chickens and the dogs and the heat

Early come mornin’ but long come supper

Fix a little somethin’ to eat

Another day will come he’d say

Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise

Take that old Gibson down in the kitchen

Do a little pickin’ tonight

My daddy was a workin’ man back in high water

And I’m just a product of the man Sawmiller’s Daughter

 

For every chance you get there’s a chance you met

So take a chance every chance that you can

Cause I’m tellin’ you son there ain’t no fun

In the life of a sawmill man

My daddy’s life was sung but he died young

And we miss him every day

Not a minute’s passed I wouldn’t go back

To those sawmill ways

My daddy was a workin’ man back in high water

And I’m just a product of the man Sawmiller’s Daughter

Yeah my daddy was a workin’ man back in high water

And I’m just a product of the man Sawmiller’s Daughter

Dreams of Yesterday

White gravel road stretches for miles and miles

All the love in my mother’s eyes

Come in child suppers on the stove

That old rope swing where we used to play

Swimming hole has seen it’s better day

And all of our footprints have all but washed away

Is it any wonder we go back to those times

When the real world was far away

All along the water’s edge I watched the sun go down

Thinking of how things change

And my dreams of yesterday

My dreams of yesterday

 

October rain I see you standing there

All dressed up ready to go nowhere

Now all that I feel are kisses in my hair

That covered bridge where we said goodbye

Midnight kiss and I still ask why

All of the those first loves never really die

 

Was it really as good as I remember

I know there’s days that I forgot

Sometimes the only thing I know for sure

You were there and now you’re not

In my dreams of yesterday

My dreams of yesterday

White gravel road stretches for miles and miles

All the love in my mother’s eyes

Come in child suppers on the stove

Sun And The Moon

It’s the sun and the moon and the stars and the sky

The way we don’t know where we go when we die

It’s the answer to all of the questions that make you ask why

It’s the hope and the prayer and the hug and the kiss

What you don’t see but you know it exists

Somewhere in the wonder and beauty beyond the blue

It’s the sun and the moon

And the stars and the sky

It’s the way that we love

So don’t hold it inside

 

It’s the hum and the strum and the dream and the wish

The come and the go and the hit and the miss

It’s all of the lessons your learning in playing the fool

It’s the run and the race and the tears and the sweat

The thrill of the chase and the high that you get

For the dream that you been chasin’ when it comes true

 

It’s the roll and the dice and the game and the bet

It’s the ring and the rice and the baby’s first step

It’s all of the chances we’re taking by saying I do

It’s the heart and soul and the wing and the prayer

The love you don’t see but you know that it’s there

That makes me believe we can make it to take it with you

 

It’s the sun and the moon

And the stars and the sky

It’s the way that we love

So don’t hold it inside

It’s the sun and the moon

And the stars and the sky

It’s the way that we love

So don’t hold it inside

Hold it inside

Hold it inside

Don’t let your love die

Inside of you

SunkIssed

I’ve been sunkissed I been kissed by the sun

And I sit back and pour me another one

And I watch the ships roll in

Sit and wonder how ya been

How ya been

How ya been

 

I been sunkissed I been kissed by the sun

And my wish my wish to come undone

Lay back and feel the sand

Pretend it is your hands

Your hands

Your hands

Your hands

Across my burning skin

Never ever end

 

I been sunkissed I been kissed by the sun

And it’s so good like sugar melting on my tongue

And how I wish that you were here

To whisper in my ear

My ear

My ear

The things you’d wish you’d done

Kissing in the sun

 

I been sunkissed I been kissed by the sun

I been here all day and it’s been so fun

Just staring into blue

Pretending that it’s you

That it’s you

That it’s you

That it’s you

Kissing me from higher

Setting me on fire

On fire

On fire

On fire

Melting into one

Kissing like the sun

Peace and HappIness

I’ve been searching high and searching low

Got my eye on a guy but he don’t know

Starting over your life takes time I guess

If love were a face I wore the frown

If pain were a queen I wore the crown

It doesn’t really matter I did my best

Now I’m searching for my peace and happiness

 

Shake it up and let it roll

Got a good feeling about you let’s see where this goes

Eyes on the prize heart on the wheel

Hope on the gas ace on the deal

A sense of something better you must possess

When you’re searching for your peace and happiness

 

Now there’s a lot of folks in your life

Gonna give you lovely love advice

And it’s a blessing that will put you to the test

Cause’ only you can know what makes you sing

And who can make you love again

It’s up to you to hell with all the rest

When you’re searching for your peace and happiness

 

So shake it up and let it roll

Got a good feeling about you let’s see where this goes

Eyes on the prize heart on the wheel

Hope on the gas ace on the deal

With a little love and luck you will be blessed

When you’re searching for your peace and happiness

 

So shake it up and let it roll

Got a good feeling about you let’s see where this goes

Eyes on the prize heart on the wheel

Hope on the gas ace on the deal

A sense of something better you must possess

When you’re searching for your peace and happiness

 

Eyes on the prize heart on the wheel

Hope on the gas ace on the deal

When you’re searching for your peace and happiness

Free SpIrIt Love Song

I go where the spirit takes me

Catch my fall it won’t break me

Long is the only road I’ve known

Live the life you’ve been givin’

Make mistakes be forgiven

You’ll be remembered when you’re gone

And I’ve known love and I’ve known pain

I’ve known standing on the mountain top and cryin’ in the rain

And I’ve known high and I’ve known low

Right back in your arms tonight my love is where I wanna go

 

Down the road and across the valley

There’s a fire that burns within’ me

I’d go when the highway called my name

It took so long to find you

Laying here right beside you

Makes me want to put away this game

 

Like a lighthouse you see through me

Take a while to break it to me

If you should ever put my love away

Like the frogs in a nighttime forest

Singing to ya that old time chorus

Your love is a song I’ll always sing

I'm Just An Old Chunk Of Coal

Hey I'm just an old chunk of coal

But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
I'm gonna grow and glow

Till I'm so blue pure perfect
I'm gonna put a smile on everybody's face
I'm gonna kneel and pray every day

Lest I should become vain along the way
I'm just an old chunk of coal now

Lord but I'm gonna be a diamond some day

I'm gonna learn the best way to walk

Gonna search and find a better way to talk
I'm gonna spit and polish my old rough edged self

Till I get rid of every single flaw
I'm gonna be the world's best friend

Gonna go round shaking everybody's hand
I'm gonna be the cotton pickin' rage of the age

I'm gonna be a diamond some day

Now I'm just an old chunk of coal

FlorIda LIne

When I leave this town the first thing I’ll do

Quit that damn job and get a brand new tattoo

Take all the money out of the bank

Write down the words of a new song to sing

It’s high time

To be movin’ out movin’ on, on with my life

It’s high time

To cross that Saint Mary’s and see the Florida line

 

I took all your liquor it poured down the sink

So good that I stopped and had me a drink

Stopped by the pawn shop ain’t much you can do

With a ten dollar banjo and old worn out boots

It’s high time

To be movin’ out movin’ on, on with my life

It’s high time

To cross that Saint Mary’s and see the Florida line

 

Wrong all along sad but it’s true

You find out the songs ain’t about you

I’m movin’ on new things to say

You’ve always been selfish that way

 

When I leave this town the last thing I’ll do

Is throw out the ball and chain of fools

Take all the trash out to the curb

Start living the kind of life I deserve

It’s high time

To be movin’ out movin’ on, on with my life

It’s high time

To cross that Saint Mary’s and see

It’s high time

To be movin’ out movin’ on, on with my life

It’s high time

To cross that Saint Mary’s and see the Florida line
