'ALL I WANT TO DO IS YOU'

(c2013 Sandy Craig/Rockslide Music/Ascap)

VERSE
I STARTED RUNNIN SOON AS I COULD WALK, I STARTED CUSSIN SOON AS I COULD TALK,
I COULD NEVER SIT STILL LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO GET BORED...
TIME IN SCHOOL I SPENT LOOKIN OUT THE WINDOW, WASN’T LOOKIN FOR THE TROUBLE THAT I WAS ALWAYS INTO,
NEVER SAW THE BRICK WALL THAT I WAS HEADIN TOWARD...

CHO
I WAS LOST IN THE DARK, UP A CREEK WITHOUT A PADDLE...A MUSTANG FILLY WHO NEVER SEEN A SADDLE,
I COULDN’T BE BROKEN, I WAS TOO TOUGH THRU & THRU...
I HAD A CHIP ON MY SHOULDER AND A BAD ATTITUDE...LIKE A STICK A DYNAMITE WITH A REAL SHORT FUSE,
BUT THAT ALL CHANGED THE DAY THAT I MET YOU...
NOW BABY ALL I REALLY WANT TO DO, IS YOU...

VERSE
I WAS RUNNIN ROUND TOWN WITH A WILD PACK, I RAN SO FAR I THOUGHT I’D NEVER GET BACK,
I WAS LOOKIN FOR SOMETHIN THAT ID NEVER KNOWN BEFORE...
NOW ALL I WANT TO DO IS STAY HOME WITH YOU, SIT BESIDE THE FIRE WITH A COUPLE A BREWS,
LAYIN ON YOUR BEARSKIN RUG DOWN ON THE FLOOR...
BABY NOW ALL I WANT TO DO, IS YOU

CHO
I WAS LOST IN THE DARK, UP A CREEK WITHOUT A PADDLE...A MUSTANG FILLY WHO NEVER SEEN A SADDLE,
I COULDN’T BE BROKEN, I WAS TOO TOUGH THRU & THRU...
I HAD A CHIP ON MY SHOULDER AND A BAD ATTITUDE...LIKE A STICK A DYNAMITE WITH A REAL SHORT FUSE,
BUT THAT ALL CHANGED, THE DAY THAT I MET YOU...
NOW BABY ALL I REALLY WANT TO DO, IS YOU...

ALL I REALLY WANT TO DO IS YOU...

'ANGELINA'

(c2013 Sandy Craig/Rockslide Music/Ascap)

Verse

Where the red dirt kisses the sky, and the Pecos River runs clear,

is where I last looked in her eyes, now it's been almost a year...

I rode down to Santa Fe, I left her there waiting for me...

I swore there'd be no poker games, I'd only buy the things that we need...

Cho

Angelina, where are you now...Angelina, can you forgive me somehow...

I'd go home today, if I could find a way, to tear these prison walls down...

Angelina, where are you now...

Verse

In a store window, I saw a new dress, more money than I could pay...

But my Angelina she deserves the best, I thought there might be a way..

In Cisco's saloon, in the back room, they play 7 stud every day...

The hours slipped by, and by late afternoon, my chips wereup to my face...

Cho

Angelina, where are you now...Angelina, can you forgive me somehow...

I'd go home today, if I could find a way, to tear these prison walls down...

Angelina. where are you now....

Refrain

Then somebody noticed there were 5 aces showin, I said hey boys I guess it's time I was going...

8 eyes and 4 guns were pointed at me, it was jail or the hangin tree....

Cho

Angelina, where are you now...Angelina, can you forgive me somehow...

I'd go home today, if I could find a way, to tear these prison walls down...

Angelina. where are you now....


'Under The Cherry Tree'

(c2013 Sandy Craig/Rockslide Music/Ascap)

Verse

Well its been a year now, since you left me, I’m looking out the window at the cherry tree
That you and I planted when we first made this place a home...

The friends and the neighbors came by for a while, and gave me their heartfelt sympathy and smiles
For the way you abandoned me, whereabouts now unknown...

Cho

I never let on how the paydays got leaner, I never tell anyone how you just got meaner and meaner,
The years and the booze just rolled on with no end, I miss you now, but I sure didn’t miss you then...

Verse

I got real good at hidin black eyes, behind the dark glasses and livin the lie,
That I wasn’t dyin inside everytime you came home again...

And I used to think it was maybe my fault, and I locked up my heart in an cold metal vault,
it took longer & longer for the bruises and bones to mend...
I miss you now, but I didn’t miss you then...

I was out splittin wood, when you came up behind, you were asking me something bout when’s supper time,
with a breath full of whiskey and a fist full of bad intent...

I bit my tongue, then I came unstrung, I guess if it wasn’t for how hard I swung,
It almost could'a looked like a real sad accident...
I miss you now, but I sure as hell didn’t miss you then...

The sheriff came by said he wasn’t surprised, that you up and left me and then he advised,
That I'm better off without you, he said now honey don’t you worry...

The sheriff’s a good man he comes by every week, I bake him a pie and he kisses my cheek,
He says please and thank you ma’am, and he ain’t in no big hurry...

Cho

And I don’t tell him why the pie is so good, that cherry tree is standing tall in the woods,
It’s been doin real well since I buried you and said my amens....
I miss you now, but I sure didn’t miss you then


'Reckless Pride'

(c2013 Sandy Craig/Rockslide Music/Ascap)

Verse

BROKEN GLASS ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, SPARKLIN LIKE DIAMONDS IN MY HEADLIGHTS..

300 MILES AGO, I LEFT HIM THERE, AND  DROVE OFF INTO THE NIGHT...

HE SAID THAT’S JUST LIKE YOU, ALL YOU KNOW TO DO IS GOODBYE...

I SAID I GOT MY PRIDE...MY RECKLESS PRIDE...

Verse

THIS AINT THE FIRST TIME, I’VE HAD TO START IT ALL OVER AGAIN...

I’LL FIND WHAT I‘M LOOKING FOR, I DON’T KNOW WHERE, I DON’T KNOW WHEN...

FOR MY WHOLE LIFE, THERE'S BEEN A TWISTIN KNIFE, DEEP INSIDE...

IT’S MY PRIDE, MY RECKLESS PRIDE...

BRIDGE

I KNOW THERE'S THOSE, WHO CAN JUST LET IT GO,

SOMEHOW THEY STAY SATISFIED...

BUT I WANT MORE, SO I SLAM THE DOOR,

THAT I SHOULD HAVE LEFT OPEN WIDE…

DAMN THIS PRIDE...

Verse

SUNRISE, I TURN IT AROUND, JUST LIKE I'VE DONE SO MANY TIMES BEFORE...

I KNOW WHAT HE’LL SAY TO ME, BEFORE I EVEN OPEN UP THE DOOR....

HE'll SAY WHY CAN‘T YOU SEE, IT DON’T HAVE TO BE SUCH A LONG, HARD RIDE...

IT’S YOUR PRIDE, YOUR RECKLESS PRIDE....


 ''ALL I'VE GOT LEFT OF YOU'

(c2013 Sandy Craig/Rockslide Music/Ascap)

Verse

I dreamed I saw you walking, down the road we used to live on...

And just like back then, I couldn't tell if you were really there or not...

You just kept on walking like you didn't have a care,

close enough so I could smell the sunshine on your hair...

These dreams go nowhere, they're all I've got left of you...

Verse

I dreamed I watched you leaving me, taillights fading round the bend...

And just like back then, I couldn't tell if you were coming back again...

There was always something, pulling you away,

I tried too hard to hold you, I know you tried to stay...

These dreams go nowhere, they're all I've got left of you...

Bridge

It's alright, I wouldn't change a thing, could have been's just a losing game anyway....

Still sometimes, I wonder, where you are....

Verse

I dreamed I heard you calling me, from somewhere across the great divide...

And just like back then, I couldn't answer you, no matter how I tried...

I look at the mountains, and sometimes see your face,

most times they're just mountains, and you're gone without a trace....

These dreams go nowhere, but they're all I've got left of you,

these dreams go nowhere, they're all I've got left of you....


'MAGPIE AND THE PRAIRIE DOG'

(c2013 Sandy Craig/Rockslide Music/Ascap)

Verse

Magpie sitting on a telephone pole, looking down on a prairie dog hole,

magpie knows he'll be coming out by and by...

Sure enough soon the sun was high, prairie dog comes out blinking his eyes,

he took a look around, before he left his hole...

Magpie saw it all, from the top of the pole....

Verse

Magpie say hey prairie dog, it's beautiful day, and there ain't no fog,

that grass is tall and green over cross the road..

Prairie dog say hey I ain't no fool, first thing we learn in prairie dog school,

is we must never ever cross the road...

A red tail hawk will carry me away, I've been told....

Verse

Magie say don't hide in your hole, I've got a bird's eye view from this here pole,

I'll let you know, if that old hawk comes near...

Prairie dog say well hey magpie, you sure seem like a real nice guy,

and that grass over there, sure looks good from here...

I'll be ready to run when you tell me that the coast is clear...

Bridge

Magpie saw the big truck comin', eighteen tires, really hummin',

he waited for a minute 'cuz the timing had to be just right....

He said hey prairie dog get ready to run, go ahead and have your fun,

run now...There ain't a hawk in sight....

Verse

Prairie dog ran, looked up too late, middle of the road, he met his fate,

Magpie saw it all with his cold black eyes....

Supper time, for this here lucky magpie....

Verse

When I heard this story I was sitting on a rock, told to me by the red tail hawk,

he swears, that every word is true....

And there's a lesson, in all this, whether you're a Mister or a Miss,

that grass over there might look real green and new...

But if you go, the magpie'll be watching you....
