Lyrics

I got ears that bend easy

So go on lay your troubles on me

I got a heart that can love you, right where you are

I got arms that can hold

All the doubt in your soul

Honey, come in from the cold,

I’ll take you in.

 

Like a cabin in the falling snow

A light in the window

Quiet as the deep night

Peppered in starlight

 

I know you’re trying to be brave

Cracking jokes just to save face

But when the laughter fades, your eyes give you away.

You can let your guard down.

Sit right here and talk it out and

Pour your tears into this house

I’ll take you in.

 

Like a cabin in the falling snow

A light in the window

Quiet as the deep night

Peppered in starlight

 

Morning’s breaking like your heart

Cross the sky, a deep scar.

As lonely as you are

I’ll take you in.

And lonely like you are, I’ll

Take you in.

Lyrics

There’s a dark eyed Junco

Just outside my window and he is

Singing his heart out

Though the sky is dark

And the fields deep with snow, he’s still

Singing his heart out

 

Oh, he’s breathing in time with God

And his voice cuts through the morning fog

Oh, his song is all he’s got and he is

Singing his heart out

 

A little girl walks to the bus stop

Just up my street and she is

Singing her heart out

Though her dress is dirty

And her mama screams, she’s still

Singing her heart out

 

Oh, she’s breathing in time with God

Her dreams don’t feel so far off.

Oh, her song is all she’s got and she is

Singing her heart out

 

Though my days here are short

And my mind thick with troubles

I’m singing my heart out

Cause, it’s the only way I know to grow

Flowers from this rubble – when I’m

Singing my heart out.

 

Oh, like breathing in time with God

As the sun burns down that old morning fog

Oh, my song is all I’ve got and I am

Singing my heart out.

Oh, my song is all I’ve got and I am

Singing my heart out.

Lyrics

Capo 5

                        G

Young Dewey Oxner

            D

Got a law degree at Clemson

            C                                    Em            Asus

Wet behind the ears and then some

                                    D

The simple country kind.

 

                        G

A public defender

                                    D

Subject to weekend benders

                        C                        Em            Asus

He’s seen the law work for some folks

                                          G

And leave others far behind.

 

                        G

Lay it down.

            D

Lay it down.

                        C

You’re gonna hurt yourself

Em                                    Asus                        D

Hauling that big old heavy load around.

            G

Let it go.

            D

Let it go.

              C                        Em            

There’s only so much hurtin’

            Asus                 D

your heart can hold, so

            Am                        C

Dig a hole in the ground

                    G

And lay it down.

 

Carrie Ann’s a wreck

Hole in her soul the size of the Delta

She says she can’t love herself cause of

How her daddy left her.

 

Twenty years of therapy

Prozac and Pinot Gris

Still full of rage and tears

And he’s been dead for years.

 

(chorus)

 

Me, I’m doing time since I

With a weary heart and a worried mind.

Another sleepless night –

Wish I could take my own advice….

 

(chorus) (tag)

Capo 5

Baker Hotel 1929

Capo 5

 

   G            C            G

Baker Hotel 1929

   Em                   Am                           D

Rich folks came from miles around

   G                        C                        G

To heal their ills with the crazy waters

   Em                              Am                        D

That came right out the ground.

 

Mineral Wells northern Texas

Was booming when the country was bust and

Young Virginia’s there in her finest , and

                        Em                        Am                        D  

Dreams of dancing in the courtyard at dusk.

 

                        Em                             C

And the moon on her shoulders

   G                        D

Soft silvery white

            Em                                    C

She’d swoon in the arms of a soldier

            G                                    D

And the band would play all night.

            C9                        Em                        Asus              Am

And love would check in with a sweet heavy sigh

              C            Em            D   G

At the Baker Hotel 1929.

 

She came from a small sugar farm

Down along the Brazos River.

But she had plans for a grander life

That the Baker could surely deliver.

 

She took a job cleaning rooms

For Dietrich, Will Rogers and Harlow.

Fell hard for a tall navy captain

Said he’d take her away tomorrow

 

 

 

 

And the moon on her shoulders

Soft silvery white

She swooned in the arms of her soldier

And the band played all night.

And love checked in with a sweet heavy sigh

At the Baker Hotel 1929.

 

She woke in the morning alone.

No letter, no reason, no dream.

She walked up to the 7th floor window

And stepped right out as though on the street.

 

They say you can still hear the music

And smell her rosewater perfume

Though the Baker’s been closed 50 years now, she’s still

Searching for love in those rooms.

 

And the moon on her shoulders

Cold silvery white

Marooned in a dream of a soldier

As the band plays all night.

Virginia lives here suspended in time

At the Baker Hotel 1929.

The Baker Hotel 1929.
