I don’t wanna get wet, ‘cause I don’t wanna be cold, just want you and me naked in the grass saying, “oh!” I don’t wanna cut loose, wanna cut my teeth, I don’t wanna move to the city where I got no privacy, I just have a little, don’t need a lot, everything I want in this world, I done went and got I wanna stand on something high, look out on the people like trees from the sky, I don’t wanna let down my one true love, but what I feel in my heart I cannot just give up, gotta make a livin’, and livin’ ain’t easy, but shit, we gotta eat, and eatin’ ain’t free, on the grind till I’m a retiree, just have a little, don’t need a lot, everything I want this world, I done went and got I don’t wanna die young, but I don’t wanna get old, just want you and me livin’ on life real slow I don’t wanna calm down, wanna stand my ground, I wanna turn this feelin’ of fire into sound, just have a little, don’t need a lot, everything I want in this world, I done went and got

There’s a dip in the bed where you used to lay, I’m whole no more since you went away, half of me left with you, the other half is strugglin’ by, but I can wait baby til the world unwinds, roll the credits, let ‘em wait in line, I can bite my tongue til I’m tasting yours in time, come to the farm, I’ll take you in, come let me give you good lovin’, come on boy, let me show you what you been missing, come up the hill I’ll take you in, come make a life worth livin’, share the load, I’ll share these luxuries, of milk and honey (X3), for my honey Well I set the traps but I caught no fur, fed the plots but I killed no food, out of tune with her if I ain’t got you, now the boat is empty while I check our lines, floatin’ down the river, will I drown in shine tryin’ to wash your missing from my mind? I reckon I can wait till the sky unfolds, a hand comes through to carry me home, heaven forbid you don’t come home first, come to the farm I’ll take you in, come let me give you good lovin’, come on home let me show you what you been missing, come up the hill I’ll take you in, come make a life worth livin’, share the load, I’ll share these luxuries, of milk and honey (X3), for my honey Well I reached my hands through the dark for you, only a dream but it’s coming’ true soon, half of me left with you, I can feel it closer now, so I opened up the gate and I left it wide, spread like the wings of my heart in flight, ridin’ the wind to Kentucky with you tonight, come to the farm, I’ll take you in, come let me give you good loving’, come on boy, let me show you what you been missing, come up the hill I’ll take you in, come make a life worth livin’, share the load, I’ll share these luxuries, of milk and honey (X3), for my honey

Walkin’ around lonely with the big boys, you’ve got nothing to listen to but yelling, and you’ve got nobody to hold you close at night, old Kentucky’s missing her Levi, so you’re back in these hills every night in your dreams, shoveling hog shit while ya sing Broccoli and see the Purple Bud Queen, bummin’ and hummin’ every night in your dreams, You can almost smell tomatoes on the vine, you can almost taste morels deep fried, you almost miss your daddy’s bitchin’ too, on Wisemantown, where God dropped you, don’t give up though the goin’ gets hard, keep on fightin’ like cocks in the yard, you got grit, Lainhart, yeah, you got grit, Lainhart, The farm ain’t the same with you not here, there’s no lovin’ and leavin’ ‘em, no bongs of beer, there’s no cute girls, lookin’ for lovin’ in town, they heard you left, now their tears fall down, you miss fishing for the women and the catfish too at Loch Wall twelve where the whiskey got you while Preston and the boys are missin’ you, you know we’d all take a bullet each for you, we’d all take a bullet for you, so don’t give up though the goin’ gets hard, keep on fightin’ like cocks in the yard, you got grit, Lainhart, yeah, you got grit, Lainhart

I'm in the dark, I'm sinking down she covers me like a cloak and crown the heat is leaving me I got no chance, I cannot win father forgive me all my sins Chorus: He said little girl, I'm here for you, I put a finger to the sky, and I ran right through, gone from the mountain, gone to the sea ain't nobody coming, looking for me I see my man, I see his smile working on the wood like a big bonfire I am desparate, I can't breathe undertide coming, taking me Chorus I'm in too deep, nobody knows salt and blood in my cloudy dome my memories are leaving me into the throes of death I fall floating in this puddle, on this flying ball Chorus

There's an ocean between us, calm as the eye of a storm, words won't break it and tears won't even cause a ripple, I can feel the waters raging on all sides, as we lie awake too stubborn to reach to the other side Chorus: This California king is gonna drown me and you babe The wind blows cold down my back, the blanket of your body aint the only thing I know I lack, the mist from the sea feels like needles to me, when I'm fighting my monsters in the blue and the deep, never meant to hurt ya babe, I was just having fun, but ya done drew up the anchor and give up on me, you slipped into your sleeping bag like a casualty, you found peace in the cabin while I'm out here on my knees Chorus Come morning, I won't ask you to stay, if fishing ain't the only thing you're good at, it's goin' away, and I can't even tell ya how we got this far, nor can I navigate the sea without a single star, but I am the sun and I need no god damn moon Chorus There's an ocean between us, calm as the eye of a storm, words won't break it and tears won't even cause a ripple

walking down River Drive, breathing deep and open, wide-eyed to the town of my raising, where the trains have came and went, hauling coal like money spent, cigarette butts litter the rails, I went halfway around the world just to come back and tell myself that I could be something else, right here, better there be some half truths told, whispered behind the hand, than hurt somebody here like addiction can, (chorus) we ought to make a haven of these hills and hide away, tiptoe around the poplar benches with fox and deer leading the way, I wanna be elusive, we all rode together over open water, it wasn’t no trail of tears, next time you hear “wall” remember how we got here, there’s people grinnin’ at me through the booze and through the dark, I can see little flames in their eyes, flickerin’ away like beacons in the night, come on now, shine them lights, and dance babies, flail your arms, dance babies, don’t be alarmed when I’m gone, (chorus) ‘cause I’m gonna make a haven of these hills and hide away, tiptoe around the poplar benches with fox and deer leading the way, yeah I wanna be elusive

cedar, rough cut trim by hand, and splinters in your game, courtin’ ain't what it used to be but we all know the dream, you’re walking tall with your flintlock jaw and spitting’ out your flame, blaming everybody else for the country on your face, you can tell us all you do is try, emphasize your accent, put a little twinkle in your eye, but you’re not proud and you don’t see what’s great, I think you ought to, if you want country on your plate, fadin’ fast smoking, tearing all the pieces down, scratching at the paint, quilt patchwork, treetop to ground, and you can’t keep anything that’s nice if you don’t hold it close at night, show it love, love, tenderly, you can tell us all you do is try, emphasize your accent, put a little twinkle in your eyes, you’re not proud and you don’t see what’s great, I think you ought to, if you want country on your plate, big coal boom bust ringing in your ears and late at night, ya lie awake thinking of what you thought you were doing right, now the mountain streams are bleeding, your Kentucky home’s been raided, tall white oaks were gone before you knew you’d miss them too, you can tell us all you do is try, emphasize your accent, put a little twinkle in your eye, but you’re not proud and you don’t fight at all, I think you ought to, if you want country past your wall, you can kiss goodbye Catalpa, earth and mealworms too, regulations point to us needing them no more, you can beg God for forgiveness, you can weep on every pew, still there’d be some greed livin’ deep inside of you, you can tell us all you do is try, emphasize your accent, put a little twinkle in your eye, you’re not proud and you don’t see what’s great, I think you ought to if you want country on your plate, I think you ought to

You say you don’t have to feel like this, you’ll just have to change, staring at me through the dark, like I’m the only one to blame, what happened to our long nights, spent stumblin’ in the streets, blind beneath the neon lights, blown away like ash into the breeze? Ignorance is bliss, they say I already know, but that part of me died, a long, long time ago, and when I lie down for my final rest, let them torch my womb like a little prairie nest, swayin’ on the wings of fire, burning to be free, from all the eggs and all the eyes been laid on me, (chorus) Let it go, let it fall, so I can be your woman, curves and all, let it be easy, don’t do anything that does not please me, trying to pinpoint the first futile desire is like trying to find the first time human felt fear, and ya say I’m just so pretty, you say I look real small, I ought to be at home pinned against the wall, overpowered, overcome, modest and true, fertile and faithful, female and blue, (chorus) Let it go, let it fall, so I can be your woman curves and all, let it be easy, don’t do anything that does not please me (Chorus X2)

baby let down your hair now, let it fall down your back, you've worked hard for the man now, you don't owe him jack, four long years of desolation, two jars of dry wine, one is for your love of red meat, the other is for them high heeled shoes, and you don't wanna have a pity party, no, you don't wanna be that girl, you don't wanna fuck, or fight, or get flowers, you just wanna lay back and put your feet up, but you said, (chorus) I don't wanna go with you, I wanna stay at home, I don't wanna go out tonight, I wanna sit here alone, be by my lonesome, hang out with me, walk around naked and look at my own body (end chorus), baby let fall your four pounds of fury on the notion of soft hands, raised up right under the stones of etiquette to never step out under the neon lights, but you breathe aloud when you're left alone, you exhale the weight, of not being able to hold your other half, of not being able to stand the wait, but you said, (chorus), if you forget, don't forget, ya can't love nobody before you, you can't give to somebody what you never had, no ya can't be good until ya let go of the bad, so baby let down your hair now, I'll help you unpack, eternities spent self-seekin', searching, it's so good to have you back

my hands are shaking, I never felt so strong, never wanted anybody to stick around so long, take off your boots and hold me, we got this big ol' house, with too many rooms, I got dogs and spices, flowers and brooms, I only want you, but Georgia calls, and you gotta go, you got mater eyes as I watch you go, people are waiting to pay you to sing about whiskey, weed, and home, forget about the snow, it'll soon be gone, the coyotes outside are a'singing my song, I only want you, I can't plant the garden with a relaxed mind, I can't cradle my yield and leave my worries behind without you, I only want you, when you come home, I'll cook you bacon and sing, I'll wear my union suit with my wedding ring, and hold you like I've wanted to, I only want you

my high beams cut the night like a knife into the flame, tempered by the fire, weathered by the rain, and I been beat down and smothered, so much love I can barely stand, while Lula's swayin' her hips from the dash in high demand, but there ain't enough for everybody askin', there's just enough to keep it close to home, (chorus) we all got heavy hearts for the liftin', we take turns to hold each other high and I climbed so tall, slept on every branch and I'll never fall from the arms of my family tree (end chorus), Estill County native, I'm a stranger to the fane, pragmatic in delivery but fall short all the same, some might say I've got it all, others might say I'm bound to fall to the depths of hell though all I know is love, when you're living in captivity, overexposed by liberty, you frequently forget we're all the same, (chorus), shoot not your starlings, spear not your thieves, fruit for the plenty, ask and you shall receive, rubber hits the pavement like a broom onto the rug, beating out the dirty, bad memories, sex, and drugs, I can drive the pain away one mile at a time, the closer that I get to home, my thoughts they come divine, (chorus)
