Track Name: From a Jack to a King
From a Jack to a King.
From loneliness to a wedding ring.
I played a Ace and I won a Queen,
and walked away with your heart.

From a Jack to a King.
With no regrets, I stacked the cards last night.
And Lady Luck played her hand just right:
You made me King of your heart.

For just a little while, I thought that I might lose again.
but then I saw the twinkle in your eye.

From a Jack to a King.
From loneliness to a wedding ring.
I played a Ace and I won a Queen,
You made me King of your heart.

For just a little while, I thought that I might lose again.
but then I saw the twinkle in your eye.

From a Jack to a King.
From loneliness to a wedding ring.
I played a Ace and I won a Queen,
You made me King of your heart.
Track Name: Girl at the Crossroads Bar
walked out one night for a ramble ‘round
didn’t mean to stay just to view the town
when I saw her smiling form afar
as I walked into that crossroads bar

well I walked right in and sat me down
ordered sweet red wine and drank it down
she came and sat beside me there
with her dark brown eyes and red red hair

I told her that I loved her true
anything you want I would surely do
she said a man like you don’t get too far
with a girl like me from the crossraods bar

I like smokey lights and a lonesome song
and I won’t do right if I can do you wrong
you want the moon above well I’m a darker star
and you won’t find love at the crossroads bar

come all my friends take my advice
leave your love at home with your loving wife
you’re better off then you think you are
and you won’t find love at the crossroads bar
Track Name: Rough Spots
Rough spots in the road
they happen all the time so I’m told
you either go around or you fall right in
stumbling over rough spots in the road

Angel’s fly on Silver wings
and they never fight over little things
yeah but people do like me and you
it makes a rough spot in the road

Bitter words breaking hearts
tender dreams torn apart
angry days make cold cold nights
when you join join the fight

Rough spots in the road
they happen all the time so I’m told
but we’ll make it through me and you
cause it’s just another rough spot in the road

Rough spots in the road
are just a state of mind so I’m told
cause we’ll make it through me and you
we’ll go around these rough spots in the road
yeah we’ll make it through this rough spot in the road
Track Name: My Baby's Gone
Hold back the rushing minutes
make the wind lay still
don’t let the moon light shine
across the lonely hill
dry all the raindrops and hold back the sun
my world has ended my baby’s gone

The milkman whistles softly
as he comes up to my door
the mailman brings the letters by
just like he did before
they seem so busy all day long
as though there’s nothing wrong
don’t they know the world has ended
my baby’s gone

I wake up sometimes in the night
and realize your gone
and then I fall upon my bed
and wait for day to come
I try to tell my lonely heart
it must go on alone
but it cries the world has ended
my baby’s gone
Track Name: Closing Time
Well it’s late and I’m drowning in the corner
With a half-empty bottle in my hand
Talking trash and making threats to linoleum
Tee shirts torn and a mouth full of sand

When midnight rolls around you’ll find me up town
‘Neath the glow of a Miller Highlife sign
Right up until last call I’ll be arguing with the wall
And counting the drinks ‘til closing time

Since she’s gone I’m spending bottom dollars
Seeing the world through the bottom of a glass
It’s a grand tour of booze from A to Z
Walking down lonely streets of my past

Blurry faces glaring back from the mirror
Behind bottles standing guard at the bar
Rolling eyes and clinching teeth in celebration
Like those pickled eggs they keep in a jar

She’s not only gone she’s forgotten
Every time I lift a glass and curse her name
It’s good riddance to bad rubbish that’s for certain
Another round and I’ll forget her again

When midnight rolls around you’ll find me up town
‘Neath the glow of a Miller Highlife sign
Right up until last call I’ll be arguing with the wall
And counting the drinks til closing time
Yeah I’ll be right here ‘til closing time
Track Name: The Memory of Your Smile
I’m a walking from one bar to another
I don’t know where I’m going or where I’ve been
no one I meet realizes
that I’m suffering from a love I just can’t win

The memory of your smile nearly drives me wild
ain’t nothing ever gonna ease my mind
I thought you’d be true I counted so on you
I’m lost from a love I’ll never find

I wonder how this pain’s gonna wind up
it get’s worse day by day since you’ve gone
if only you’d come back and save me
that’s my only chance from now on

The memory of your smile nearly drives me wild
ain’t nothing ever gonna ease my mind
I thought you’d be true I counted so on you
I’m lost from a love I’ll never find
Track Name: The Pilot
I’m not gonna make it to town today
a sad voice said on the phone
got a lot of things I need to do
before my mom gets home

(chorus)
Well there’s too many boys in this girls life
they all want a piece of her time
and you want to touch her light
cause it’s burning so bright
but you’ll never know what’s in her mind

A touch on the arm, a harmless flirt
a hug at the end of it all
never starts with intended hurt
but you know you’re heading for a fall

Can you really lose something that was never yours
holding on when you should let go
cause there’s nothing but goodbyes, left there in her eyes
and her fire for you is burning low

With her bright eyes and piercing smile
she’ll melt you where you stand
but she’s got plans that she ain’t telling
she knows how to get to a man

I’m not gonna make it to town today
a sad voice said on the phone
got a lot of things I need to do
before my mom gets home

Well there’s too many boys in this girls life
they all want a piece of her time
and you want to touch her light
cause it’s burning so bright
and if you only had her tonight
everything would be alright
but you’ll never know what’s in her mind
Track Name: (Now and Then There's) A Fool Such as I
Pardon me if I’m sentimental when we say good by
don’t be angry with me should I cry
when you’re gone, I’ll dream a little as the years roll by
now and then there’s a fool such as I

Now and then there’s a fool such as I am over you
you taught me how to love and now
you say we are through
I’m a fool but I love you dear ‘til the day I die
now and then there’s a fool such as I
Track Name: A Face in the Crowd
Just a face in the crowd on your wedding day
you tossed me a rosebud from your bridal bouquet
no one seemed to notice no one wondered why
when you pledged your love to him
there was tears in my eyes

Just a face in the crowd with a pale yellow rose
in your gown of white satin my half wore out clothes
I knew your love one time but your love now he holds
I’m just a face in the crowd with a pale yellow rose

As your friends they all kissed you I heard someone say
that man with the rosebud from you bridal bouquet
was he someone special or was he just a friend
I heard you say softly he was onkly a friend

Just a face in the crowd with a pale yellow rose
in your gown of white satin my half wore out clothes
I knew your love one time but your love now he holds
I’m just a face in the crowd with a pale yellow rose
Track Name: Home By Dawn
leave the front door open and the porchlight on
leave the cat outside and the paper on the lawn
wrap yourself in dreams ‘til the stars are gone
cause I’ll be home by dawn

it’s friday night and I’m feeling mighty fine
padded barstool and it’s Miller time
paycheck’s cashed at the ATM
so set ‘em again

them long neck bottles are frosty cold
another one down bubbly gold
ain’t fooling ‘round just enjoying the view
here’s to me and you

there’s a honey do list on the refrigerator door
fix the leaky faucet tile the bathroom floor
take out the trash clean the litterbox too
heap of stuff to do

I’ll be dragging my tail the whole day through
a bleary-eyed skunk with the bottle flu
alka seltzer bloody mary mid day meal
that’s how it’s gonna feel
