Track Name: Brothers
You're in the strawberry curls and I'm in the straight dirty blonde
Runnin' so hard through the trees, wrestling around in the lawn
You're sticking up for me, I'm sticking up for you
A love so deep the Mississippi run through
Brothers we'll always be, you and me

You're still a loner and I got the beautiful bride to be
You make the money, I play the fiddle and sing
I'm still sticking up for you, you're sticking up for me
We share the same blood whenever we bleed
Brothers we'll always be, you and me

You're lying there in the hospital bed and I'm holding your hand
Still teaching me something about being a man
I'm looking out for you, you're looking out for me
We both live and die and we both are free
Brothers we'll always be, you and me
Track Name: Good As My Word
I get that call at 4 am for a reason
One of two they give you at the county jail
Out of this warm bed into the freezing
Drag my ass eleven miles just to post your bail
I took a punch for you in a barroom brawl and a beer bottle over the head
Good as my word, loyal to the day I'm dead

I'm the door you knock on for money
I'm the floor you walk on with a hefty load
Now I can't make your rainy day sunny
But I'll pick you up when you run out of the road
I've covered for you from a little white lie to sleeping in another man's bed
Good as my word, loyal to the day I'm dead

Moon sets to sunrise, northern lights to Texas skies
This is true as the blue in these eyes

I'm the only one left standing here, all the others fled
Good as my word, loyal to the day I'm dead
Track Name: Southern Graceland
You're my blood, you're my son
You fill my heart with true, unconditional love
I would die to see you live
Ain't nothing that I'll ever that I wouldn't give
When the day gets darker than the night
I'll be there to guide you toward the brightest light
Back to where it all began, back to the southern graceland

All these years whittle down to days
I've taken my turns through this unpredictable maze
I'm not afraid and free of all envy
And when I'm dead lay me down in Tennessee
When the day gets colder than the night
I'll be there to pull you toward the warm sunlight
Back to where it all began, back to the southern graceland

When the day gets darker than the night
I'll be there to guide you toward the brightest light
If you're lost, if you've been led astray
Get back on the track, you won't forget the way
Back to where it all began, back to the southern graceland
Track Name: Hotels and Heartaches
Moving on from hotels and heartaches
From the smoke heavy curtains and regret
It's a long night when you start it out crying
And a long day ahead

Used to be so amusing, all the roads I was using
Turned out they were just using me
Led my life as a nomad, a wanderer with no plan
Getting by on hotels and heartaches
I won't miss the heartbreaks

Now the winter in Austin is like summer in Boston
Oklahoma is all wind and rain
If I could find me a place without moving
I'd settle in

Used to be so amusing, all the roads I was using
Turned out they were just using me
Led my life as a nomad, a wanderer with no plan
Getting by on hotels and heartaches
I won't miss the heartbreaks

Moving on from hotels and heartaches
From the smoke heavy curtains and regret
If I could find me a place without moving
I'd settle in
Track Name: You Light Up My Darkest Hour
I used to get lost in the dark sometimes
You came in like a warm ray of sunshine
Four years later and a couple of youngins
It couldn't be more clear
You light up my darkest hour, dear

I got caught in a storm a long time ago
Thirty odd years of hard wind, rain and snow
You came around and the thunder, lightning
And grey cloud all disappeared
You light up my darkest hour, dear

Living was sad and lonely until I met you
You took me places I never knew
You make days easy to get through

Carmen, my love don't shed those tears tonight
Whenever you're blue and tired of the fight
I'll pick you up off of the ground
And dust off your trouble and fear
I'll light up your darkest hour, dear

Take my hand for this first dance
And I'll lead you far from here
I'll light up your darkest hour, dear
You light up my darkest hour, dear
Track Name: In The Grave
From many miles south of the Mason Dixon line
A step right off of the Mississippi Queen
You think I ain't got no rock and roll
I'm a making your boots kick sawdust up in the hall

I'm a drinker, a drugger, and a fighter
I'm a lover, a liar lying beside her
It's an empty life I lead, I know my mama's turning in the grave
In the grave

This hat's from central Texas, these boots from Tennessee
I got this second hand suit in North Caroline
I ain't got a nickel to my name
But I'm a livin' as free as the rich man in the shade

I'm a drinker, a drugger, and a fighter
I'm a lover, a liar lying beside her
It's a lonely life I lead, I bet my daddy's turning in the grave
In the grave

My mama grew up Christian and my daddy prayed to God
It was Sunday mass at the start of every week
Now I can't say today what I believe
But I'm a hoping that something saves my ass when I leave

I'm a drinker, a drugger, and a fighter
I'm a lover, a liar lying beside her
It's a selfish life I lead, I'm gonna wind up in the grave
In the grave
Track Name: Hundred Story Wall
I was just a boy when you would take me
Riding in that ol' brown Bronco
You'd set me in your lap and let me steer
While you switched the gears

You stood just like a hundred story wall
Time will always be the wrecking ball
It's true, ever since those days I been looking up to you

I'd fetch the whisky and cigars
For you and all the fellas playing bridge
For sips of beer I would beg
While tugging at your leg

Rest assured you're my hero now
They'll be days I make you proud
Only love can speak this loud

One day I blinked and you were seventy
I's now a man at half your age
Rocking the grandkids in your chair
Hurtin' everywhere
Track Name: May Our Love Live On
You got the butter, I got the dough
Let's make an angel in the snow
I wanna know you like no one's ever known

I got the engine, you got the drive
Let's have a cheap beer at the dive
I wanna make big plans for you and I

Spin the record and sing our song
What started new has grown strong
After our bodies are dead and gone
May our love, may our love live on

You got the pistol, I got the aim
Let's plant a garden in the rain
I wanna skip all those petty love games

I got the honey, you got the bee
Let's come together naturally
I want the whole damn world to see you and me
