Track Name: Ohio #1
OHIO #1

I came home to Ohio.
Just a bag of civilian clothes.
And the bus drove past the silos,
Wheat fields that stretch on miles.
I was a woman of sorrow--
What’s left can’t follow
To my gone home, Ohio.
Track Name: Pieces and Pieces
PIECES AND PIECES

I have let you down, pieces and pieces.
I will make you mine again, pieces by pieces.

Nothing is lost when it’s been found again.
Everything’s found where it was lost.

There’s bad men out there now, no peace in these places.
I have to go, I love you so, to pieces and pieces.

Nothing is lost when it’s been found again.
Everything’s found where it was lost--
Everything’s found where it was lost.

I am coming home in pieces and pieces.
With every broken bone, piece me by piece then.
Track Name: Dog in This Fight
DOG IN THIS FIGHT

There’s a lot of shouting here tonight
There’s a lot of people crowding my left and right.
It’s not for money and it’s not my pride,
I just know I got a dog in this fight.
All I know’s I got a dog in this fight.

Who’s gone and lost his head tonight?
Who’s gone and lost his head tonight?
Who’s gonna throw down bets on a no-win fight?
Who’s gone and lost his head tonight.

My girl can be fierce, can be mean.
My girl, she’s more muscle than she is machine.
She might be angry, and she might be right,
But I know she’s got a dog in this fight.

Who’s gone and lost her head tonight?
Who’s gone and lost her head tonight?
Who’s gonna throw down bets on a no-win fight?
Who’s gone and lost her head tonight.

Who’s gone--
Who’s gonna lose a bet tonight?

There’s a lot of shouting here tonight.
There’s no one standing on my left or right.
Square your jaw, man-- no end in sight.
Don’t you know you got a dog in this fight.
We’ve got more than just a dog in this fight.
Everybody’s got a dog in this fight.
Track Name: Liquor Man
LIQUOR MAN

Don’t you worry, take your time,
I’ve made up my mind a million times.
Don’t you know that it’s time to slow down
And see the Liquor Man.
Get yourself a fifth of something,
Get yourself filthy drunk, and
That’s when you can calm back down.

Don’t you make me change my mind,
You can’t get me back from borrowed time.
Hold the morning, it’s time to go down
And see the Liquor Man--
Get myself a fifth of something,
Get myself good and drunk and
That’s when I can come back down.

Go and see the Liquor Man / I can’t come back down.

Don’t you worry, take your time,
I’ve made up my mind a million times.
Track Name: Love, Come Trouble Me
LOVE, COME TROUBLE ME

I miss how we passed the time,
Your legs intertwined in mine--
Love, come trouble me tonight.

The kitchen and the Christmas lights,
Italian captions pass us by--
Love, come trouble me tonight.

Sing your sad songs,
But don’t be long
To follow me.

If you take your boots off,
We can leave a light on--
Love, don’t tell us who was right,
Just come trouble me tonight.

Desert dreams, they leave you white,
Don’t taste its water in the night--
Just come trouble me tonight.
Track Name: July Shivers
JULY SHIVERS

July heat has got us cold,
As if you don’t want my love at all.
Our golden house is good as sold,
If you don’t want my love at all.

Spit my pleas into your lull,
And I’ll cradle tiny bluebird songs.
It’s seven years of southern brawl,
If you don’t want my love at all.

Head out west to lead your tide,
I’ll be your steady eastern sky.
If you don’t find what you’re looking for--
Then you don’t want my love no more.
You don’t want my love at all.

A tiny scrape will do us in
If you don’t want my love again.
I’ll wash up and treat you right,
If you will have me in tonight.

But don’t you want my love?
Don’t you?
Track Name: Ohio #2
OHIO #2

I’ll lay down in a hundred miles
Underneath a dark Ravenna sky.
Mark their words who mark my tiles--
A desert prison to an open cell.
I am a woman of sorrow.

White tailed deer by the roadside,
Fireworks on the 4th of July.
The planes they’d dust the crops at night--
My heartland scattered far and wide.
I am a woman of sorrow.
I was a woman of sorrow.

I came home to Ohio.
Just a bag of civilian clothes.
And the bus drove past the silos,
Wheat fields that stretch on miles.
I am a woman of sorrow.
I was a woman of sorrow.
What is left can’t follow
To my gone home, Ohio.
