He wasn't much to look at But he had a heart of gold Give the shirt off his back  To keep you from being cold He didn't live perfect But he tried to live right He'd give up his pride Just to end a fight Its the eyes that speak for the soul The bonnet on top is just for show And it's ok if it starts to go As long as we never let go of love She never stopped workin' There was always someone in need She'd mask the pain she felt every day So nobody would see She didn't live perfect But she was pretty damn close Her love was like a magnet Kept her family real close It's the eyes that speak for the soul The youthful beauty is just for show And it's ok if it starts to go As long as we never let go of love

Pocket Tee 03:21
A 40 minute walk On a Sunday evening Not the worst thing in the world Cigarettes in my front pocket And one clenched in my lips As the smoke begins to whirl See I do believe it's the little things That keep us spinning Yeah I do believe it's the little things I'm not much of a social mixer I don't like to go out But I'm told I'm a likeable guy My wife, my kids, my work We do what we can to make it work All you can do is try See I do believe it's the little tings That keep us spinning Yeah I do believe it's the little things That keep us spinning And some days it's hard to keep things From spinning out of control But I'm a firm believer in the little things

Wren Song 03:28
Daddy always got up before the sun There's work to do, and plenty for everyone Oh but I wanted something else in the worst way With wild eyes I followed my dreams Never knowin' where they might lead Oh but I never strayed too far away Cause I was afraid That I might never hear the song again Those sweet wrens made Mama cared for our every need With so many mouths to feed Oh I always wondered when she got her rest And years later, as daddy started to fade She held us all together, and quietly prayed Oh Lord, don't make me lay my man to rest Or I might never hear the song again Those sweet wrens made If I could, I'd go back, oh you know I would To a time when I looked up to you And did what I should Days are gone, but memories don't end And I still hear that song in my head My life turned out pretty well I Got a family of my own and they love me so very well But I would give it all For just one more day And to hear you say My child, just listen to the song Those sweet wrens made

This Ring 02:44
Sir what can you give me for this This piece of my heart She's gone and left me sad and lonely And it's time for a new start I'm sure someone could use this now It's no longer mine to give This ring, a symbol of devotion It's not my life to live to have and to hold is sunk deep in this gold disowned and released love’s left this ring please take this ring second hand it’s no longer mine a circle without promise the gold past its shine this blessed ring left her hand the night that she left me exposed now her left hand’s empty Our story left untold to have and to hold is sunk deep in this gold disowned and released love’s left this ring empty kitchen table in a small sidetrack house cleared off and empty except for this half an ounce my heart’s run away let loose, out of hand I can’t bear the weight of this little gold band Sir what can you give me for this This piece of my heart She's gone and left me sad and lonely And it's time for a new start I'm sure someone could use this now I’d like to move on and forgive This ring, a symbol of devotion It's not my life to live

Lovin' Easy 03:35
The way you looked back at me You ain't so sure on leavin' me But I can't be the man you need I'm only good for lovin' easy The way you hang your head Makes me think you're ashamed Of giving up on love But you're not to blame I'm only good for lovin' easy Girl I know the truth is hard And I know it breaks your heart But go on and finish what you start But I'm only good for lovin' easy I'm only good for lovin' easy You should keep on walkin' babe I'm only good for lovin' easy You're tentative in your step You ain't had enough yet But honey, I'm a losin' bet I'm only good for loving easy

Dandy Lion 03:00
Dandy lion, dandy lion, dandy lion Oh I wanna be a dandy lion With a mane full of gold And an iridescent coat I got something to show And there's something in the air When I show up everywhere I'm the one you wanna know But I'm too sentimental And sometimes I'm kinda mental I can't just be who I am And I want the world to see What you see in me What's so wrong with that? With a royal lot and pomp Wanna show my colors off Man I'm something to see And if people think I'm great Oh wouldn't that be great I'm more than just a weed But I'm not well loved All the neighbors pull the plug When they see me comin' I so want the world to see What you see in me I just need some lovin'
