    Blues Hand Me Down

    3:45

    Hey!

    Papa was a blues man, gave me the blues hand me down
    An alligator shoes man, gave me the blues hand me downs
    Moonshine drinking, doing everything but thinking
    Blues hand me downs

    Racing the wrong way, chasing every skirt in town
    Taking the long way, waiting for the sun to come out
    Wheeling, hustling, dealing and a-shuffling
    Blues hand me downs

    Lord, have mercy on my soul
    I didn't know, you never know

    A fighter, no lover, no fucking around
    And just like my big brother, he stood on shaky ground
    His pride got the best of him and smoking took the rest of him
    Blues hand me downs

    Lord, have mercy on my soul
    I didn't know, you never know

    Hand me down blues
    Hand me down blues
    Hand me down blues
    Hey!

    Come on, come on
    Hey!

    I come from vintage trouble, look out if I'm the one you found
    I'll pop your bubble with my live wire, straight shooting dirty mouth
    Papa was a blues man, please, baby, understand
    I got the, got the, got the blues hand me downs

    Lord, have mercy on your soul
    You didn't know, they never know

    Hand me down blues
    Hand me down blues
    Hand me down blues
    Hey, yeah

    Hand me down blues
    You're getting to me
    Hand me down blues
    I'm getting to you
    Hand me down blues
    Yeah, yeah
    I got the, got the, got the, got the

    Hey!

    Papa was a blues man
    Papa was a blues man, yes, sir
    An alligator shoes man
    Alright, alright
    Give it to me
    Give it to me
    Give it to me
    Hey!

    Yes indeed, yes indeed, yes indeed, yes indeed, yes indeed

    Still and Always Will

    3:23

    When you stumbled across me
    There, around the way
    And I carried on like I was over you
    It’s just a game I play

    See I’m a proud, proud man
    You won’t catch me down
    You won’t find me on my knees crawling
    Crawling on the dirty ground

    But what you don’t see is the real me
    From what I show you would never know
    That I love you like no other baby
    Still and always will
    Still and always will

    I tried to make out of sight
    Be out of mind
    But your being gone makes me fonder
    Fonder with passing time

    Now, I may act like I don’t want you back
    Kissing the strange like there’s been a change
    But I love you like no other baby
    Still and always will
    Still and always will
    Still and always will

    If I could undo
    What lead from you
    I would undo it yesterday
    I’m nowhere near fine
    This smile is a lie
    There is no here when you’re away
    I just don’t feel the same
    Without you calling my name
    I thought I could do it
    But without you it
    Don’t get done the same

    When you stumbled across me
    There, around the way
    And I carried on like I was over you
    It’s just the game I play

    But what you see ain't the real me
    From what I show you’d never know
    Know that I love you like no other baby
    Still and always will
    Still and always will
    Always will always will
    I love you, baby
    Can’t stop thinking of you, baby

    Nancy Lee

    3:41

    I see you, Nancy Lee
    I hope that you see me
    I see you, Nancy Lee
    I hope that you see me
    I know I'm not the only other man
    Who wants your hand to be in his hand
    But I don't just want I need you
    Nancy Lee

    Country girl sitting on a porch squeezing lemons
    Taking what’s given and making lemonade
    I was tearing down dusty road back to the city
    When I crossed her porch and there I stayed stayed

    And I tell you
    I won’t looking for it no but
    It came hunting me
    How do I get what I get
    Honey stung the bee

    I see you, Nancy Lee
    I hope that you see me
    I see you, Nancy Lee
    I hope that you see me
    I know I'm not the only other man
    Who wants your hand to be in his hand
    But I don't just want I need you
    Nancy Lee

    City girls never brought what you were bringing
    Precisely why I never fell in
    She don’t car where around the world I’ve been sing
    Nothing is nothing less it ends with amen

    That’s why I tell you
    I won’t looking for it no but
    It came hunting me
    How do I get what I get
    From down on one knee

    I see you, Nancy Lee
    I hope that you see me
    I see you, Nancy Lee
    I hope that you see me
    I know I'm not the only other man
    Who wants your hand to be in his hand
    But I don't just want I need you

    Gracefully

    3:38

    I was lost and alone in the shadows
    Dark in my mind
    My heart was trampled in the battle
    Love left me blind

    Then came around and found me, baby
    You took my hand
    And made me stand like the man I am again

    Do you see what you've done to me
    Gone and washed away my misery
    With your touch
    You love gracefully

    I was shattered into pieces
    Torn to the bone
    And nothing mattered. No reason
    To come from under my stone

    Then like the sun you fell over me, baby
    You hit my eyes
    And made me rise and fly and shine again

    Do you see what you've done to me
    Gone and washed away my misery
    With your touch
    You love gracefully

    I’d ‘bout given up on it all
    Every single little hope and dream
    Then you heard it and answered my call
    When you lifted me
    Lifted me over the wall

    Do you see what you've done to me
    Gone and washed away my misery
    With your touch
    You love gracefully
    You love gracefully
    Love gracefully

    You Better Believe It

    4:10

    Last train leaving the station
    And I'm gonna take it
    Before I'm broken more by this situation
    I am gonna break it

    Lord Knows I've tried more than any man could
    And I did more than I swore I ever would
    Now I'm turning the good into gone
    And I'm shuffling on my way

    You better believe it
    You better believe it
    A ray of light
    Found it's way to my mind
    Knot's untied
    You better believe it

    Last tug boat to part the water
    And I'm diving for it
    A little sparrow inside saying, "Fly, Baby"
    How can I ignore it

    Child, I have walked on the glass the broke
    While I stayed and I prayed on my knees in hope
    I held my breath and I choked
    Holding onto this rope
    I gotta let go

    You better believe it
    You better believe it
    A ray of light
    Found it's way to my mind
    Knot's untied
    You better believe it

    The going under is over
    The going under is over
    The going under is over
    You better believe it

    Not Alright By Me

    3:20

    Something hit me deep
    On my sunset walk through the streets
    I could see and hear
    But I couldn't feel or breathe
    From tuning out this static world
    I've lost the sense of peace
    And that's not alright by me

    The LA Times and Channel 5
    And New York Magazine
    They stain my soul
    And I know you know what I mean
    They tear apart the hopeful heart
    Til it doesn't bleed or dream
    And that's not alright by me

    Pull on the rope that lifts the sun back to the sky
    Hold a hand. Cry on a shoulder
    Whistle in the wind and open up your eyes
    And feel again
    Feel again

    Where the roads cross
    And time stands still
    I'm frozen in my tracks
    Against my will
    The streetlight is dimming
    And it won't shine again until
    I say "It's not alright by me"

    Not alright by me
    Not alright by me
    Not alright by me
    Not alright by me

    Nobody Told Me

    4:36

    This is a message and a calling
    So, get up and gather around, everyone
    I’m withering. Dying. Trembling from trying. Barely crawling
    What can be done?
    What will be done?

    Nobody told me
    Nobody told me
    Nobody told me
    How heavy this life was gonna be

    Here stands a silver lined believer. Not believing
    A rosy-eyed dreamer awakening
    Into a moment when hands are not given to the needing
    What will become
    Of this needing one?

    Nobody told me
    Nobody told me
    Nobody told me
    How heavy this life was gonna be

    If I can just hold on
    Until the morning dawns
    And nothing remains but a better day
    And my song…
    Will sing of the weighed down times now behind me
    And I’ll be moving
    And I’ll be grooving

    Nobody told me
    Nobody told me
    Nobody told me
    How heavy this life was gonna be
    How heavy this life was gonna be

    But I keep pushing on

    Everyday’s getting heavier and heavier
    Heavier and heavier
    Everyday’s getting heavier and heavier
    Heavier and heavier

    8:13

    Can I go on?
    When you’re just gonna do what you’re gonna do

    Welcome back baby
    Sit on Down
