The Slinger of Silverton
Dust settles in the haze of the sunset As the day subsides You're lyin' ass first on the pavement Eyes wide to the sky You played your part in the cycle I respect the try But the young, they just keep on comin' Comin' to die They come to try Gathered your crowd around midnight I see the stars in your eyes Belt hangin' at a rakish angle And strapped tight to your thighs You played your part in this game I respect the try But, the young'll just keep on comin' Like you they come to die They come to die At least they tried So step up if you're willin' I know you need to try Ghosts of the past won't hear you But the ones to come just might It's somethin' you're born to baby So let your hammer fly The sun and the sand they tell me It's my turn to die My time to die I've played my part in the circle It's my time to diemore

You Will See
This is my take on the closing credits track of an 80s high school film. Lyric sheet: I caught your eye on the dance room floor, by the door, and my jaw hit the floor; I couldn't ask for much more. When you looked my way, I must say, you left a way for me to get to know you better someday. And that look said to me I am free, we will be Something so much more as one, you and me. Oh baby, you will see... You will see. I remember that day at the mall, it was fall, do you recall? No, you were alone and you bought nothing at all. But the music played outside the arcade and you stayed. My mind's made; such a pair; Heaven Made. And the vibe in the air told me to beware, to take care, we will share a life, you and me. Oh baby...you will see. You will see, you will see, it's you and me. Oh, baby, you will see. I caught your eye on the dance room floor, by the door, and my jaw hit the floor; I couldn't ask for much more. When you looked my way, I didn't know what to say, but we swayed in that way that made the whole world melt away. That look said to me I am free, we will be Something so much more as one, you and me. Oh baby, you will see... You will see. You'll see, you'll see, it's you and me.more

Not about to Make Love to a Stranger
This song is strictly "country" (inspired by the music of Hank Williams). He swears to his estranged wife that he's not about to make love to a stranger - all the while he's dancing with a stranger. Do you believe him?more
