Track Name: 2 much whine
I don't care what you were thinking about
If you don't wanna tell me you should shut your mouth
I don't care what you have to say
I just wish you'd go away

I don't care if ya knew him before
Ran into him at the liquor store
Had to much wine and ya don't know why
Went to his place and stayed the night

So why'd ya tell me
Cause I don't wanna know
So why'd ya tell me
your conscience bothered you so
Why'd ya tell me
Why why why why
why why why why
why why why
Did ya tell me

The pictures running through my mind
Over and over a million times
He's touching you your kissing him
touching you face kissing your skin

Makes me cry and it makes me ill
First I wanna die and then I wanna kill
I just wish I could forget
The things I felt the things you said

So why'd ya tell me
Cause I don't wanna know
So why'd ya tell me
your conscience bothered you so
Why'd ya tell me
Why why why why
why why why why
why why why
Did ya tell me.

Track Name: Never went west
I came to Saint Paul in 73
The war between brothers took my family
My father at Shiloh along the sunken road
Two brothers at Bull Run
I was 7 years old

When I reach the prairie was like a sea of green
There was more sky than I'd ever seen
I felt like a pirate or a captain at sea
My horse was my ship and it soon set me free.



Now my fingers are froze but I can't feel the pain
My hands have gone numb and I can't hold the reins
In a corduroy jacket with 2 buttons left
I start to wonder why I never went west

I heard of the cowboys in old Mexico
And up into Texas where they never see snow
I heard of them crossing the Old Rio Grand
With only a blanket asleep on the sand

The Saint Paul stock yards where no place for me
So I went on a drive out northwest of Sioux City
I learned to rope and ride I was a pretty good hand
I worked hard for my money and I became a man.



I went to Fargo one last winter drive
I met a girl I took for a bride.
I promised I'd be home by New Years Day
Now I'm blinded by snow hope the horse knows the way.


Now my fingers are froze but I can't feel the pain
My hands have gone numb and I can't hold the reins
In a corduroy jacket with 2 buttons left
I start to wonder why I never went west

I heard of the cowboys in old Mexico
And up into Texas where they never see snow
I heard of them crossing the Old Rio Grand
With only a blanket asleep on the sand

Now my fingers are froze but I can't feel the pain
My hands have gone numb and I can't hold the reins
In a corduroy jacket with 2 buttons left
I start to wonder why I never went west
I know all the best cowboys ain't in Texas.
Track Name: Wo bu ming bai
Wo bu ming bai
I don't know what you want
I don't know where you gone
Track Name: Peter Peter
There's a girl in my neighborhood
A skinny little red head she was lookin good
Now Peter thought she was really somethin
And her daddy always called her his little pumpkin
They went out dancin
They started bumpin
Now Peter really wants to eat that pumpkin.

Peter Peter
Pumpkin eater
Pete Pete eat that pumpkin


And later on they went out drinkin
And Peter let lil peter do all the thinkin
He said baby if ya let me stay the night
Ya know I'll love ya for the rest of my life
So don't forget if ya go out drinkin
Don't let lil peter do all the thinkin
Ya just might find yourself stuck for life
With a big hairy pumpkin for a wife

Pete Pete eat that pumpkin
Track Name: Found some peace
You know that old drunk from the liquor store
Seen him stubblin round town a million times before
Lives in an old Chevy van
Sit in the park with a tin cup in his hand
Save'in up for his gin in a sack
Parks his van on down by the railroad tracks
Well I seen him today shaven and clean
He had a big smile as he said to me...
Hard stuff and a hard life
I found me some peace in Jesus Christ
You know that sweet thing we used to tease at night
Down on East Colfax under the neon signs
She'd turn a trick to get her crack
Make'n a living lie'n flat on her back
She'd take a ride with most any John
But a life like that won't last very long
Well she was dressed like a lady when I seen her today
She had a big smile as I heard her say....
Hard stuff and a hard life
I found me some peace in Jesus Christ
A friend of mine has a beautiful wife
Beautiful children the American dream life
He doesn't cheat steal or lie
But by Friday night he's ready to break down and cry
See's no future in his life
No point in his job no love from his wife
But as we watched his young son climbing a tree
He kissed his wife and he said to me
It's a cold world and a dark night
But I found me some peace in Jesus Christ
Now you can go around being led by the blind
Choked by the thorns cut from the vine
Lookin for the Light
Tryin to find the Way
Do anything cept get down on your knees and pray
But it never to early
And it's never to late
But it's a long winding road and a narrow gate
The lost sheep and the first will be last
Just trust in the Lord to forgive your past
Cause it's a cold world
And a hard life
Without the love of Jesus Christ

You know that old drunk
He got down on his knees forgive me
That sweet thing we used to tease at night
She got down on her knees forgive me
My friend with the beautiful wife
He got down on his knees forgive me
The lost sheep
They got down on there knees forgive me
Track Name: No 1 2 hold
You wake up in the morning
It's still dark and cold
Do you wonder why you got no one to hold you
Do you lie there and wonder
Why you're all alone
Do you remember me and the things that I told you

you can't just live life
like there's no yesterday
you can't just take love
and then throw it away

what goes around comes around
you know what they say
you've got to lay down
in the bed that you've made

As you lie in the darkness
You feel tears in your eyes
And you feel and emptiness deep inside you
Oh how you played the temptress with your little white lies
Never seeing the pain you put all these men through
