Track Name: Run Boy Run
Run, boy, run!
Catch that setting sun
You better run today

Run, boy, run!
They found your lab, son
You better run, run away

Run, run, run away
Run, run, run today

Run, boy, run!
What’s done is done
Now you better run, run away

Run, boy, run!
What’s done is done
Now just run, run away

Run, run, run away
Run, run, run today
Track Name: Wake Me, Oh Wake Me
Wake me o wake me
When it’s time to go
I’ve packed up my bags
I’ve mapped out the road
It’s just hard to get up
Early in the morn
Wake me o wake me
When it’s time to go

Wake me o wake me
When we’re almost there
I’ve got my new shoes on
I’ve combed my hair
It’s just hard to stay up
Driving everywhere
So wake me o wake me
When we’re almost there

Wake me o wake me
When they play that song
It’s midnight in a storm
And I’m your salty dog
There is a time to sleep
And a time to sing along
Wake me o wake me
When they play that song
Track Name: Leaving Burket
For the last five years, all we said was goodbye
I said it again, it was the fifth time

I took your word and did what I thought was best
I took your word and went 600 miles west

You called at 3am, from a hospital bed
You said you had to call, tomorrow you might be dead

I took your word. I did what I thought was best
I took your word. I went 600 miles west

I made you cry the last times I left
This time I cried more leaving Burket

I took your word. I did what I thought was best
I took your word. I went 600 miles west
Track Name: Driving Escort
Driving down the road with a yellow light on top of my truck
Driving down the road with a yellow light on top of my truck
Going down to Vincennes earning my 60 bucks

You earn your money
I’ll earn mine
Driving escort til we hit the state line

Jimmy’s up front I’m back here all alone
Jimmy’s up front I’m back here all alone
I’m going down the road, watching them mobile homes

You earn your money
I’ll earn mine
Driving escort til we hit the state line

Stopped at a diner I forgot to pray
Stopped at a diner I forgot to pray
I hope my boss still gives me my pay
Track Name: Muskmelon Breakdown
Muskmelon Breakdown
Muskmelon Breakdown

Get’m, get’m, get’m, get’m
Now

Muskmelon Breakdown
Muskmelon Breakdown

Get’m, get’m, get’m, get’m
Now
Track Name: Beaver Dam Blues
Sitting at the bar, drunk as can be
Thinking about the home that you had to leave
You pull out your phone, call a friend from your town
He says, “hey didn’t you know, they tore that old town down?”
That’s when you know
You got the Beaver Dam Blues

You look to your right and you look to your left
Everyone you see is speaking some accent
You pull out your wallet, find a picture of your dad
You made him proud, but you also made him sad
That’s when you know
You got the Beaver Dam Blues

You finish out your beer
Pay off your tab
Walk out the door
And into a cab
And you know
You got the Beaver Dam Blues

You go home to your apartment
In that new city
This is what you wanted
So why aren’t you happy?
It’s cause you know
You got the Beaver Dam Blues
That’s when you know
You got the Beaver Dam Blues
Track Name: White Bathtub
Well you went and left me another
All I did was treat you well
Since you left me so lonely
I’ll leave you too and kill myself


Our old white bathtub
I’m gonna paint it red
Take your old 22
And shoot me in my head

I told you I was taking the pill
I’m sorry, I know it was a lie
All I wanted was to have your baby
So you’d stay by my side

Our old white bathtub
I’m gonna paint it red
Take your old 22
And shoot me in my head

Now don’t worry about our little baby
He don’t even have a name
My swollen stomach will start bleeding
He won’t even feel pain

Our old white bathtub
I’m gonna paint it red
Take your old 22
And shoot me in my head
Track Name: The Legend of the 47 lb Fiddle
In the soggy ground by a sycamore tree
That orphan found four demon strings

Many men tried to play that thing
Only the child could make it sing

She played a note. She played some more.
That sky grew dark. She played no more.

Now in the soggy ground by a sycamore tree
That orphan sleeps 47 feet deep
Track Name: Back to Indiana
I’m coming to you father
It’s been a long, long time
I long to see your face
As you long to see mine
We will meet in Chicago
Take that handsome drive
Back to Indiana
Back to the old times

We’ll pass the fields a’rolling
Pass them soybean farms
We’ll talk and laugh and listen
And count the wooden barns
We’ll stop at a restaurant
Eat a tenderloin
Back in Indiana
Back in the old times

Then we’ll run out of words
Like we always do
There’ll be that long silence
When I want to say I love you
More than a lover
More than my hopes so high
More than Indiana
More than the old times

But you’ll be so bitter
Although you love me so
You won’t be mad at me
But at another who was close
And your sadness will creep
Through the corn and through pines
It’ll creep through Indiana
And creep through the old times
Track Name: Meet Me in the City
When you want me to stay
O you know that I’ll go away
When you want me gone
I’ll be at home

I don’t know what I, don’t know what I want

Meet me o my love
In the city by Nives and Gruvs
If you don’t know where
Look for me there

I don’t know what I, don’t know what I want
