Track Name: Little Lorrie
Little Lorrie, Little Lorrie's got her dancin' shoes
Little Lorrie, Little Lorrie's got the rhythm and the blues
and the ooh's and the aah's
She knows what she wants
and I know that she doesn't want me

Little Lorrie's the finest girl in this town
Little Lorrie knows just how to knock me down
night after night, I cry and I cry
I just want to be her guy

So I said
Hey there sugar babe don't you think it's mighty strange
you're dancing all alone
I'm a two-steppin', love-makin', heart-breakin, leg-shakin'
Man down to the bone

Little Lorrie, Little Lorrie didn't like that much
Spun me around and said "keep your mouth shut"
Dancin' and singin', independent women like me don't need your opinion

Then I looked around, what did I see
Lorrie and my best friend dancin' next to me
One-step, two-step, three-step, four
I'll find another girl on the dance floor

Little Lorrie, Little Lorrie's got a sister names Jane
Takes two to tango but she brings me lots of
Pain and sorrow, like there's no tomorrow
I guess it's all the same

So I said
Hey there sugar babe don't you think it's mighty strange
you're dancing all alone
I'm a two-steppin', love-makin', heart-breakin, leg-shakin'
Man down to the bone

Little Lorrie, Little Lorrie's got her dancin' shoes
Little Lorrie, Little Lorrie's got the rhythm and the blues
and the ooh's and the aah's
She knows what she wants
and I know that she doesn't want me
and I know that she doesn't want me
and I know that she doesn't want me
Track Name: Straight and True
I was lost in the barroom, I was lost in sin
I was lost in the cycle of whiskey and gin
And I heard myself saying, at the end of my wits
the bottom of the bottle, is the problem I admit

Sleep sweetly, leave my thoughts behind
They'll be gone soon
Keep steady, weep with dry eyes
These things I do,
are not in the bible
But lord, keep me straight and true

As I leave my belongings, and I pack up my bags
I look around this town at the memories I've had
Drink a bottle, drink a bottle is the tune that I sang
Now on my way home, this tune has changed

Sleep sweetly, leave my thoughts behind
They'll be gone soon
Keep steady, weep with dry eyes
These things I do,
are not in the bible
But lord, keep me straight and true

I pull in the driveway, and I shuffle my feet
I've been driving down this highway for what seems like a week
and my mother's eyes widened as she opened that door
it's good to have you back son,
oh, it's good to have you back son,


Sleep sweetly, leave my thoughts behind
They'll be gone soon
Keep steady, weep with dry eyes
These things I do,
are not in the bible
But she'll keep me straight and true
These things I do,
They're in the bible
And she keeps me straight and true
Track Name: Winter Flower
There's a woman who sleeps in the garden,
She whistles a song with the wind
the flowers grow all around her
she thinks about the life she could have lived

An old man tends the garden
He picks up the leaves in the fall
He hears her whistling in his homestead
He listens to her sad song

One winter day the ground froze solid
He dug himself a snowy grave
A flower grew from the soil
Reminding him of her embrace

There's a woman who sleeps in the garden,
and a man who courted her long ago
but now she's gone and he's tired
all of his time he spends alone
Track Name: Blue Skies Forever
I used to run through the grass, green and gold
All I had to do was watch the lightning bugs glow
The world wasn't hard to understand
Cause my world had only just began

I used to chase after bikes down the street
the ground was always too hot for my bare feet
Days went on, and on, and on, and on
And now all that time is gone

My little brother used to follow me around
Anywhere I went, there he'd be found
With a silly little grin on his face
And now I wish we lived in the same place

And it was blue skies, forever, forever and
I was always thinking that I knew better, better
and now time's are a changin' and everything's different
I'm getting older and I wish that I had listened
I wish that I had listened

My mama loved to sing to me
She'd say baby girl, you're growing like a string bean
Fresh on the vine, don't let let nobody pluck you off
Before it's your time
And I know you think you're so grown
But baby girl, you're only skin and bones
Oh yeah I was only skin and bones

Cause it was blue skies, forever, forever and
I was always thinking that I knew better, better
and now time's are a changin' and everything's different
I'm getting older and I wish that I had listened
I wish that I had listened

I wish that I had listened, I wish that I had listened
