Track Name: Sally Anne
Sally Anne Sally Anne run away while you can
Don’t the past catch up to you oh Sally Anne

Memories of the first love never leave
A torn red bandana in the sun
Golden hair and a cap-gun smile
Cowboys and indians on the run

An album full of polaroid emotions
‘Bout the girl from the shot-gun shack next door
Secret heart holding back the tears
While she sweeps her daddy of the floor

The teen-eye blinks and she’s gone
Ran away with the traveling show
Following the endless highway
Anywhere the next ride goes

Then one day she re-appears
A kiss for a twenty-dollar bill
She says she day she’s coming back to stay
But I know she never will
Track Name: Bandy The Rodeo Clown
Who was once a bull hooking son of a gun
Now who keeps a pint hid out behind chute No 1
Who was ridin' high till a pretty girl rode him to the ground
Any kid knows where to find me I'm Bandy the rodeo clown.

In the ridin' and a ropin' I was closin' in on No 1
Now in dreams at night I ride on that silver saddle I never won
Since she left me the whiskey takes me to the rodeo grounds
Where the cowboys think I'm handy I'm Bandy the rodeo clown.

I could ride 'em all the bulls and the broncos knew I was boss
But the ride that woman took me on
Broke a whole lot more than this ole cowboy's bones
While the tears on my make-up melts my painted smile into a frown
The crowd thinks I'm a dandy I'm Bandy the rodeo clown
Track Name: Tell Me Lies
Lies of Love whispered fables
Stories of a special one
Weapons of mass emotion
Towers crashing all around

Tell me lies tell me secrets
Promises you’ll never keep
Tell me that I’m not heading down
The wrong way on a one way street

Reprecussions from the process
Fault lines running through the heart
Flamming stabs at reproduction
Conquering heroes on the march

Not a chance for reciprecation
Not a glance from the other side
That look’s reserved for the chosen
With the gift of golden shine

Promises that can’t deliver
Cruel illusions of success
Close behind someone’s leaving
Not even a second guess
Track Name: Postmarked Birmingham
I recognize the writing on the plain white envelope
I've wondered where she'd wind up before she called or wrote
The answer's in a circle through the word 'Love' on a stamp
Postmarked Birmingham

I'd have bet on California
'Cause her sister's in Bel Aire
Or I could see Seattle with her mom and dad up there
She never mentioned Alabama so I don't understand
Postmarked Birmingham

A two-page letter written on
Ramada stationary
Date Aprill twenty-two
She asked me not to hate her,
Said she's sorry
But leavin's what she felt she had to do

So the day she left she made it two hundred miles south
Did she settle there, did she mail this note
On her way out of town
What chance is there to find here when the
Only clue I have is
Postmarked Birmingham

A two-page letter written on
Ramada stationary
Dated Aprill twenty-two
She asked me not to hate her,
Said she's sorry
But leavin's what she felt she had to do

Every day down by the mailbox
Standin' on the curb I check
The upper right hand corner
of every piece of mail I get
Hopin' there's that certain circle
Through the word 'Love' on a stamp
Postmarked Birmingham
Track Name: Heroes
The traveling show the best game around
Is finally coming to town driving a savior train
The crowd gathers ‘round anticipation fills the air
But the Hero fails to please
Something went wrong today his mother passed away

Thumbs down turn around turn your back to his face
Put him back in his place
Let him crash and burn if he falls from grace

Ready for the game the gladiator stands
In the stadium that’s filled with rabid fans
While they sip their lemonade relaxing in the shade
A casual decision is made and the swords’ bloody blade
Conquers all desires

Thumbs down turn around turn your back to his face
Put him back in his place
Let him crash and burn if he falls from grace

The current favorite tribe beloved stars of the show
Provide vicarious thrills for inquiring minds that wanna know
But their joyous expectations shield a judges mask
Gnashing vengeful jaws
Tearing flesh from bone while the prisoner stands alone

And the walls are closing in the rain’s pouring down
Friends can’t be found
And the road back home washed out long ago

The heaven’s brightest star eventually falls from the sky
Another quickly appears ready to give it a try
But among the dying embers a fire that once burned bright
Once lighting up the night
An eternity of blame can never rekindle the flame

And the walls are closing in the rain’s pouring down
Friends can’t be found
And the road back home washed out long ago

It’s lonely at the top on that narrow pedestal
Worshipped by a public demanding one strict rule
That you drown yourself in excess fulfilling their desire
Fantasy for hire
No weaknesses allowed or you’ll face the angry crowd

And thumbs down turn around
They turn their backs to your face put you back in your place
They let you crash and burn when you fall from grace
Track Name: Poison Love
Oh your poison love has stained the life blood
in my heart and soul dear
And I know my life will never be the same
For my pleading has all been in vain
for you and you alone dear
And you know that you are guilty of the same.

Into each life a love is born for one
and one alone dear
The love I chose was surely not for me
For your poison love has stained the life blood
in my heart and soul dear
And I know our love was never meant to be.

But still my heart cries out for you
and you alone my darling
It makes me never ever let you go
But my pleading has all been in vain
for your and you alone dear
And my better judgement tells me to say no
Track Name: No X
She never calls to say she’s leaving she just walks away
And when I see her in his arms she doesn’t have to say
How much she doesn’t care she’ll be glad to tell you so
But it’s something I already know

Well she’s not one for talking she leaves it all unsaid
There’s not much point in telling me what she once felt is dead
The fact that she’s moved on she’ll be glad to let you know
It’s something I already know

Don’t ask her to remember she works hard to forget
For her sympathy is just a form of regret

There’s no shelter from these feelings no safe haven to hide
‘Cause the tempest that surrounds her just batters me inside
And her favorite game to play is watch the old guy squirm
I guess I’ve got more lessons to learn

Don’t ask her to remember she works hard to forget
Circumstantial evidence that hasn’t happened yet

I’ll be glad to forget her when she’s finally gone
And I won’t have to hear her name every time I turn around
I won’t have to pretend that I’m good at letting go
But I think that she already knows
It’s something she already knows
Track Name: Poor Little Fool
I used to play around with hearts that hastened at my call,
But when I met that little girl I knew that I would fall.

Poor little fool, oh yeah, I was a fool, uh huh..

She played around and teased me with her carefree devil eyes,
She'd hold me close and kiss me but her heart was full of lies.

She told me how she cared for me and that we'd never part,
And so for the very first time I gave away my heart.

The next day she was gone and I knew she'd lied to me,
She left me with a broken heart and won her victory.

I'd played this game with other hearts but I never thought I'd see,
The day that someone else would play love's foolish game with me
Track Name: Random Accusations
When your casual denials turn monumental
And your manners of depression are all that pull you through
And your righteousness is so presidential
You’re a self-made martyr through and through

When all the saints refuse your collect phone calls
And return all your christmas cards
And everyone accuses you of building brick walls
You’re a self-made martyr standing guard

When your memories all run together like water color
And illusions become your daily bread
And you question happiness like a jealous lover
You’re a self-made martyr still in bed

When your night times are always waiting for the sunrise
And your mornings are black as coffee
And the telephone only rings with surprise
You’re a self-made martyr sanctimoniously

When your indignation chokes you like a halter
And recognition saunters right on by
And no one genuflects at your altar
You’re a self-made martyr wondering why

When all of your pretensions cry for recognition
And you’re dying for a crumb of sympathy
And your boasts are just an act of contrition
You’re a self-made martyr like me
Track Name: Pinegrass Medley - Pinegrass Breakdown/Slippery Hill
Slippery hill of love
sin below heaven above
keep sliding down can’t seem to stop
I’ll never reach the top

They say true love’s like a mountain
where the faithful find a home
but the cheater never makes it
he slides back down he’s left alone

I’m trying hard to make that climb
but this girl is giving me the sign
she’s turned on her green light
there’ll be some slipping and sliding tonight

Set me free turn me loose
don’t hold me down oh what’s the use
I know I’m gonna slip again
I’m trapped in this valley of pain

Slippery hill of love
sin below heaven above
keep sliding down can’t seem to stop
I’ll never reach the top
oh I’ll never reach the top
