Track Name: Caledonia
I don’t know if you can see
The changes that have come over me
These last few days I’ve been afraid
That I might drift away
I’ve been telling old stories, singing songs
That make me think about where I’ve come from
That’s the reason why I seem
So far away today

[Chorus]

Let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia, you’re calling me, now I’m going home
If I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia you’re everything I’ve ever had

Now I have moved and I’ve kept on moving
Proved the points that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing
Found others on the way
I have tried and I’ve kept on trying
Stolen dreams, there’s no denying
I have traveled, sometimes with conscience flying
Somewhere in the wind

[Chorus]

Here I sit, before the fire
The empty room, the forest choir
The flames that couldn’t get any higher
They’ve withered, now they’re gone
But I’m steady thinking, my way is clear
And I know what I will do tomorrow
When hands are shaken, the kisses flow
Then I will disappear

[Chorus]
Track Name: Downtown Judy Brown
When the weekend roles around
In that new old river town
That sits along the mighty Ohio
All the folks dressed to the nines
Waitin’ there in line
Just to get themselves a rosy little glow
All the boys pass single file
Lookin’ for a smile
From any pretty girl standin’ around
But the one they love the best
She stands out above the rest
She’s that swingin’ gal that downtown Judy Brown

[Chorus]

With a squiggle and a wiggle
And a whirl and a twirl
Across the ole dance floor
With a dip and a whip
And a flip of her hip
She always leaves them wantin’ more
She’s the one they love the best
She stands out above the rest
She's that swingin’ gal, that downtown Judy Brown

Well ole Moses would be proud
At the way she could part a crowd
She turns the head of everyone around
And all the boys are green for sure
As the lucky man Du Jour
Goes a swingin' round with
Downtown Judy Brown

[Chorus]
Track Name: Long Ride Home
Long black limousine
Shiniest car I’ve ever seen
The back seat is nice and clean
She rides as quiet as a dream
Someone dug a hole six long feet in the ground
I said goodbye to you and I threw my roses down
Ain’t nothing left at all in the end of being proud
With me riding in this car, and you flying through
the clouds

[Chorus]

I’ve had some time to think about it
And watch the sun sink like a stone
I’ve had some time to think about you
On the long ride home

One day I took your tiny hand
Put your finger in the wedding band
Your daddy gave a piece of land
We made ourselves the best of plans
Forty years go by with someone laying in your bed
Forty years of saying things you wish you’d never
said
How hard would it have been to say some kinder
words instead
I wonder as I stare up at the sky turning red

[Chorus]

Headlights searching down the driveway
The house is dark as it can be
I go inside and all is silent
It seems as empty as the inside of me

[Chorus]
Track Name: Thirty More Years
I was dreaming, never seeing
What was right all I knew was wrong
And I truly, didn’t notice
’Til I woke up, from this dream so long

Can I do this for 30 more years
Could I look you in the eye
And care for you like I want to
While I mourn the days passed by
Can I do this for 30 more years
When my heart is filled with fear
My hopes and dreams may be too much to be
But I know, it can’t be here

People told me, go be happy
And they’d change what they did if they could
And their hearts were, filled with sadness
And tears from the pain they withstood

Can I do this for 30 more years
Could I look you in the eye
And care for you like I want to
While I mourn the days passed by
Can I do this for 30 more years
When my mind is seeing clear
My hopes and dreams may be too much to be
But I know, yes I know it won’t be here
Track Name: You Were Only Fooling
You were only fooling,
While I was falling in love
It’s a story as old as Adam and Eve
I was making love, while you were making believe

[Chorus]

You lied to me with kisses
I try to stop dreaming of
But you were only fooling me
While I was falling in love

You were only fooling
Playing childish games
Like so many times it’s happened before
You say come on in and then start slamming the door

[Chorus]
Track Name: Little Bit of Heaven
I just want to tell y’all
A simple thing or two
About this special man I’m dreamin' of
He makes my body tremble
With the little things he’ll do
It’s a little bit of Heaven with his love
Well we’ve all been to the mountains
And seen the ocean blue
Heard the rumble of the thunder from up above
No earthquake can compare
To how his body moves
It’s a little bit of Heaven with his love

[Chorus]

Every time I see him, I feel just like a child
Feel the pounding in my chest, oh Lord,
He makes my heart go wild,
He’s the apple of my eye,
The one I’m dreaming of,
It’s a little bit of Heaven with his love,

[Chorus]
Track Name: The Guilt Was Gone
The guilt lay on my conscience,
As I turned to hold her
Those second thoughts kept rolling
Through my mind
Then I felt the tingle,
Of her fingers on my shoulder
Drawing me, to touch her, one more time

[Chorus]
The guilt was gone, I had gone crazy
Could not think of my baby, or how soon I would lose
our happy home
The guilt was gone like my tomorrow,
Now I live with the sorrow
Of knowing I was wrong all along,
Though now it’s back where it belongs,
The guilt was gone

Now the one I slipped around with,
Has took up with some other
Some other fool who’ll play her cheating game
And my true love has left me, left me for another
Another way of saying I’m to blame

[Chorus]
Track Name: Some of Shelly’s Blues
Tell me just one more time
The reasons why you must leave
Tell me once more why you’re sure
You don’t need me
Tell me again
But don’t think that you’ll convince me
Now you’ve said
Before falling in love again
You’d rather be dead
‘Cause when someone breaks your heart
You cry your eyes red
But there’s nothing so hard about the life
That you’ve led

[Chorus]

As far as I can see
There’s no reason for goodbyes
You’re just runnin’ scared
And that’s something I won’t buy
So you lose
I won’t let you go with nothing to show
But more blues
And all this talk about leaving is strictly
Bad news
So you settle down and stay with the boy
That loves you

[Chorus]

So you lose
I won’t let you go with nothing to show
But more blues
And this talk about leaving is strictly
Bad news
So you settle down and stay with the man
The loves you
You settle down and stay with the man
That loves you
You settle down and stay with the man
That loves you
Track Name: Because You Cry
I’ve known you for a while
And your lovely smile, Even when you chose another
But now tears replace
What was a smiling face, now that you’ve discovered
It was all a fantasy. He led you to believe
He’d make all your dreams come true
But now he’s gone away, and all those promises he
made He gives to someone new

[Chorus]

The love that you give and the pain in your heart
Come from the same place.
That’s just who you are
Your smile will capture any man’s eye
But I love you because you cry….
It’s a mystery to me
When someone just up and leaves
And never sheds a tear it seems
Can they know the true bliss
Of a soft and tender kiss
Feels like falling in a dream
But it’s all gonna work out right, if you hold on tight
I’ll make all your dreams come true
I’ll never go away
This love is here to stay
It longs for only you

[Chorus]
Track Name: Blue Diamonds
Need a home for my family
Gonna start a new life
Got a school for my children
And a church for my wife
Won’t be much but it’s somethin’
Food and shoes for our feet
Lord, the risk it ain’t nothin’
For a family in need

[Chorus]

Blue diamonds
Buried in the ground
Blue diamonds
All over this town

Travelin’ down through the darkness
To where I can’t see
Lost a brother this morning
Lord bless his family
Yeah we’re makin’ a living
And we’re filling a need
But we’re all sick or dyin’
For another man’s greed

[Chorus]

Oh, the long days and hard work
Drove me straight to the still
I owe it all to the company
I guess I always will
All they care for is portraits
Of great men from the past
Children’s fathers are dying
And I won’t be the last
‘Cause we’re

[Chorus]

Never to be found
All over this town
