Track Name: Understanding You
UNDERSTANDING YOU – I. & D. Meadows

I’m stuck inside this second story bedroom
you’re driving me out of my mind
I’m just waiting for a call,
and I’m waiting for it all
to come crashing down this time
Ever since that last night,
it hasn’t been alright
you’ve got me puzzled, that’s for sure
You can’t put me to rest,
but I haven’t passed the test
it’s all the sickness with no cure

CHORUS
I’ve got some hoping, some living,
a whole lotta loving to do
Before I come around
and get to understanding you
I’ve got some thinking, some breathing,
a whole lotta nothing to do
Before I come around
and get to understanding you

You’re always in a hurry,
I do my best not to worry
About those boys
you’ve been hanging around
I’ve been keeping off your back,
but I can’t be keeping track
Of all the jokers in this town

Sometimes our neighbors hear you screaming,
and I just get to dreaming
That our love is just fine
But every once in a while,
I can still get you to smile
And that’s always worth my time chorus
Sometimes our neighbors hear you screaming,
and I just get to dreaming
That our love is just fine
But every once in a while, I can still get you to smile
And that’s always worth my time

I’ve got some hoping, some living, a whole lotta loving to do
Before I come around and get to understanding you
I’ve got some thinking, some breathing, a whole lotta nothing to do
Before I come around and get to understanding y
Track Name: Julieanna
JULIEANNA – I. Meadows

You drive me cross country crazy
With your west coast smiles
And your east coast elegance
And your southern wiles
A sweet and lowdown vision, a spirit from above
To sway my whole world over
To stay in your sweet love

Julieanna, with your dark hair hanging low
What you don’t want to tell
Well I don’t want to know
I want you, Julieanna, and you only have to be
A song, Julieanna, to me

I see you lying there with your smile all aglow
And your pale skin in the moonlight
My early summer’s rose
The way we were together
All those things that drive me mad
But you just didn’t want me the way I want you bad

Julieanna, with your arms like a willow tree
What you can’t take with you
Well You can leave with me
I love you, Julieanna, and you only have to be
A song, Julieanna, to me

You’ve been pierced to the heart by the steeples
Thrown to the wind like a sinners prayer
Been the sweetheart of all the American main streets
Once you soared, now you’re floored, don’t you care

Julieanna, with your bridal train in tow
You have gone your way, and I’ll just have to go
I need you, Julieanna, even if you’ll only be
A song, Julieanna, to me
Track Name: Ghosts
GHOSTS – R. Flynn and I. Meadows

Jesse’s boy was tired and cranky
So she sent him out in the yard
She’d been separating keepsakes
From all those things you can’t discard
Like that bolo tie from Reno
And that medal from the war
All the things you can’t see coming
Are the things you can’t ignore

CHORUS
Say goodbye to Sweet Virginia
Say hello to San Antone
It don’t matter much in the long run
Now they’re gone, gone, gone

Frankie’s job it was a hassle
Didn’t turn out like he planned
Summer days they just got longer
And his back it just got tanned
Jesse’s mom she died last winter
In a room just down the hall
So they froze the mortgage payment
What good’s pride before a fall? CHORUS

It was a dream like any other
‘Til the faucets all ran cold.
I was young when I woke up
And by evening I was old. CHORUS
Track Name: A Train Makes a Sad, Sad Sound
A TRAIN MAKES A SAD, SAD SOUND – I. Meadows

I’ve never worked on the railroad
I never took that boxcar line
But I’ve stayed up until that southern sun Came on up and I heard freight number 805
It winds it’s way down through the mountains
Across the river and over the land
And that whistle just makes me miss you
Even more then I can stand

CHORUS
It pains to be so lonesome
And to not have you around
It’s true what they say
‘Bout feeling blue, feeling down
Well that train makes a sad, sad sound

I’m standing on a Nashville hilltop
That hill on fifteen south
I’m listening to that train
And it’s lonely song
There’s no way that I’m sleeping now

I wish it was heading homeward
So I could jump right on
And ride it a thousand miles
To love you all night long. CHORUS
Track Name: Lonesome Pine Company
LONESOME PINE CO. – I. Meadows

I see them out there everyday
On that distant southern ridge line
Cutting pine down for their pay
And camping by the roadside
That road it leads to Cumberland
There ain’t much to see there
It’s a ten mile walk to the package store
And they walk there every weekend

We’ve all known a tree that won’t be cut
We’ve all heard a song that can’t be sung
We’ve had not-so-precious time to sit lonely
We’ve all known the lonesome pine company
With a heavy heart and a blade that shines
The saw man farms his timber
It’s hot as hell, but the nights get cold
Just two months ‘til September

I got out of Maine when I was young
So the logging wouldn’t take me
Day in day out of swinging axe
Would surely serve to break me
We’ve all known a war that can’t be won
We have seen a long day set with the sun
We’ve watched the hours roll on by, sitting lonely
We’ve all known the lonesome pine company
Track Name: Trouble
TROUBLE

I’ve been lying out awake most every night
And I’m running out of ways to feel alright
My wallets almost empty,
and the answers are all wrong
I’m troubled now, but I won’t be troubled long

My baby left me all alone and blue
What the hell’s a worried man to do?
She did cause me to weep,
and she did cause me to moan
I’m troubled now, but I won’t be troubled long

They said I could spot trouble from a mile away
But I let that same old trouble in with me today
Nothing is forever, it’ll soon be gone
I’m troubled now, but I won’t be troubled long

This old guitar has busted a few strings
And I don’t have much money for these things
So I’ll empty out my pockets
‘Til that change is all gone
I’m troubled now, but I won’t be troubled long

A worried man’s got a worried state of mind
But he can’t let it take up all his time
So he’ll pick up that old guitar
And write it in a song. I’m troubled now,
But I won’t be troubled long CHORUS
Track Name: Tennessee Stud
TENNESSEE STUD – Jimmy Driftwood

Long about 1825 I left Tennessee very much alive
Never would have made it through the Arkansas mud
If I hadn’t been riding on the Tennessee Stud

I had some trouble with my sweetheart’s Pa
One of her brothers was a bad outlaw
I wrote a letter to my Uncle Spud
And I rode away on a Tennessee Stud

Well the Tennessee Stud was long and lean
Color of the sun and his eyes were green
He had the nerve, and he had the blood
There never was a horse like a Tennessee Stud

I drifted down into no man’s land
Across the river called the Rio Grande
I raced my horse with the Spaniard’s foe
And I got me a purse full of silver and gold

Me and the gambler, we couldn’t agree
And we got in a fight over Tennessee
I pulled my gun, and he fell with a thud
And I rode away on a Tennessee Stud CHORUS

I rode right back into Arkansas,
And I whipped her brother and I whipped her Pa
I found that girl with the golden hair
And she was riding on a Tennessee mare

There’s a pretty little baby on the cabin floor
And a little horse colt playing round the door
I love that girl with the golden hair
And the Tennessee Stud loves the Tennessee Mare
CHORUS
Track Name: Boomer's Story
BOOMER’S STORY – Carson Robison

Come and gather all around me
Listen to my tale of woe
Got some good advice to give you
Lots of things you oughta know

Take a tip from one who’s travelled
And never stopped rambling round
Once you get that roaming fever
You never want to settle down

Met a little gal in Frisco
I asked her to be my wife
Told her I was tired of roaming
Gonna settle down for life

Then I heard the whistle blowing
And I knew it was a red ball train
I left that gal beside the railroad
And never saw that gal again

Saw that gal again
I never saw that gal again
I left that gal beside the railroad
and I never saw that gal again

Travelled all over the country
I travelled everywhere
Been on every branch line railroad
Never paid a nickel fare

Been from Maine to Californee
Canada to Mexico
I never tried to save no money
And now I got no place to go

Listen to a Boomer’s story
Pay attention to what I say
I hear another train coming
Guess I’ll be on my way

If you wanna do me a favor
When I lay me down and die
Just dig my grave beside the railroad
So I can hear the trains go by

Hear the trains go
I can hear the trains go by
Just dig my grave beside the railroad
So I can hear the trains go by
