Tomorrow 03:18
How long till the river runs blue? How long till we’re sorry? How long can the blood stain my hands? Scrubbing with my might like Lady M And I’m singing Out damn spot And tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow Nothing seems to matter even sorrow And tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow How long till you unlock the cage? How long till their free from their pain? How long can the blood stain the hands Of greedy men with greedy thoughts in their head? Mmmm And tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow Nothing seems to matter even sorrow And tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow

Teton 03:44
I got off at Jackson Hole There was a nice strong man in a blue strong coat He said I’ll help you Mama said, “beware of nice men Funny thing is they never seem to listen” I could take you up to Teton or show you Gros Ventre I’m a man who knows his station and I won’t be around for long These low lying valleys contain river and streams If Lewis and Clark could navigate why can’t we? Oooo I got lost Coeur d'Alene There was a miner man willing to share his name He said I’ll love you I could find a lot of silver and buy you the fineries I’m a man who knows his station and I won’t be around past spring These low lying valleys contain river and streams If Lewis and Clark could navigate why can’t we? Oooo I got lost in Calgary

Portland 03:48
This place looks nothing like where I come from The trees they turn later, the sky comes undone We drove all night through Couer d'Alene, and I woke with the sun Onwards to Portland, Oregon (hmmm) I just want to leave to say that I did Nothing against all the green fields of my childhood But I'm drivin' through all the same places that I used to I'm gone to Portland, Oregon (hmmm) (chorus) If am lost, I am lost on purpose Please God don't find me If I am running, I am running away all on my own I get lost, I get lost, I get lost Nobody cares if the foundation's cracked As long as it looks good when somebody asks Yet I've got a man who loves me despite what I lack We're goin' to Portland, Oregon if anyone asks (chorus)

Try 03:26
You’re never ready, it’s never right And a person could never change your life Then you ask me to take a drive And we end up with cop’s flashing lights It’s eleven fifty-nine Wait a minute, take your time Chorus Yes I’ll try, do my best Can’t promise I’ll always be kind But I’ll try, do my best Can’t promise we’ll always see eye to eye But I’ll try I’ll always want you, even when I’m old Take my hand have this heart to hold And you’ll still ask me, to take a drive And we’ll end up with the cops flashing lights. It’s eleven fifty-nine Wait a minute, take your time (Chorus)

Julia 02:28
Julia lays in the sunshine and waits Out by the water on the bay And the sun goes down, and the sun goes down Where is her lover? The day is breaking over the water Julia moves to the city to find a new kind of memory clear her mind And the sun goes down, and the sun goes down She won't find another Julia is hung up on her lover And oh The time passes slowly And oh God she's so lonely And oh They all say That time, time heals the sting Julia lives in the city its spring Spring in the city blooming trees And she walks alone, and she laughs alone The lady is lovely Julia won't wait for anybody
6.
Oh I'll twine with my mingles and waving black hair With the rose so red and the lilies so fair And the myrtles so bright with the emerald dew The pale and the leader and eyes look like blue Oh she taught me to love her and promised to love And to cherish me over all others above How my heart is now wondering no misery can tell She left me no warning no words of farewell Yes she taught me to love her and call me her flower That was blooming to cheer her through life's dreary hour Oh I long to see her and regret the dark hour She's gone and neglected her pale wildwood flower

Old Country 03:02
Wish you could have stuck around this year Spring came sooner than we thought If you’d seen all those leaves turn green You might night have felt so lost Old country, why did you let him leave? Working longer in the fields these days With nothing to hold on to Except a Mama laying flat in a daze Praying and pleading for you Old country, why did you let him leave?
8.
If you see her, say hello she might be in Tangier She left here last early spring is livin' there, I hear Say for me that I'm alright though things get kind of slow She might think that I've forgotten her don't tell her it isn't so We had a falling-out like lovers often will To think of how she left that night it still brings me a chill And though our separation it pierced me to the heart She still lives inside of me and we’ll never be apart If you get close to her kiss her for the kid Who always respected her for doin' what she did Oh, I know it had to be that way it was written in the cards Though the bitter taste still lingers on it all came down so hard I see a lot of people as I make the rounds And I hear her name as I go from town to town And I've never gotten used to it i've just learned to turn it off Either I'm too sensitive or else I'm gettin' soft Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past I know every scene by heart it all went by so fast If she's passin' back this way I'm not that hard to find Tell her she can look me up if she's got the time
