Track Name: Fried Potatoes
Do you recall when we sat together and you looked so pretty and you said you liked my sweater and you promised you'd call me when you got the time?

I asked you over and we talked about the weather and I asked if maybe someday we could be together and you said you'd have to wait 'til you knew me better....
But I, I know you babe.

We fried potatoes and we sat out in your backyard and we drank to our future because living can get so hard and you promised you'd write me if you got the time....
But I, I know you babe.
Track Name: All our times are good times
Well I heard you were leaving and I shivered to my bones.
Oh no, don't let a good thing die, be the boy by my side. Oh no, no, only we know why, all our times are good times.

Well I heard though I was sleeping. Thought I'd crumble though I am stone.
Oh no, don't let a good thing die, be the boy by my side. Oh no, no, only we know why, all our times are good times.

Though I've lived through hopelessness, I'll get by, I'll get by I guess..
Oh no, don't let a good thing die, be the boy by my side. Oh no, no, only we know why, all our times are good times.
Track Name: Once were mine
Spilled tequila on my covers again. It's gonna stain, it's gonna stain.
Gonna take my laundry to your mother's and say do you know my pain? Let me explain..

I always walk the same way home, stop and kill some time where you once were mine.

Sometimes I don't know why I bother to stay since they put you away, since they put you away.

I always walk the same way home, stop and kill some time where you once were mine.
Track Name: All I need
Somehow, what I give comes back to me. Must have given a lot lately. Lately
You've got all I need.

Somewhere, must be someone who prays for me, and how good my love could be. Could be?
You've got all I need.

And I'm happy all the time since you said that you'd be mine.
You've got all I need
Track Name: Sometimes I just fall apart
If you saw my good side, you'd give me your heart and I'd give you everything you could possibly need.
If you read your starsigns, you'd probably find that someday our constellations could align. Given time..

It's so hard. You're breaking my foolish heart. Let me impart sometimes I just fall apart.

If I wore my new dress, you'd think I was fine. Like some girl Tito Puente got in mind. Oh those dreaming eyes of mine.
And if you saw my good side, you'd set me apart from all those other girls you've been sweating so hard.

It's so hard. You're breaking my foolish heart. Let me impart sometimes I just fall apart.
Track Name: Don't worry bout it
Wanna call you but I ain't got the words to say.
It's been a long, long time but maybe we're better this way.
It ain't because you took it
It ain't because I stayed
You got away with this all over again.

Don't worry about it, cos I ain't worried about it.

You are superfly
I want to say,
I never wanted you
Didn't need no love affair.
It ain't because you took it
It ain't because I stayed
You got away with this all over again.

Don't worry about it, cos I ain't worried about it.
Track Name: Heart on your sleeve
Flowers on my bedside won't heal a dying heart
Slowly wilting, looking down on me and showing how you really feel
You were for me baby, I knew right from the start
What was coming into view was good
So why now my broken heart?

I wish that heart on your sleeve was beating for me.
I wish that heart on your sleeve was beating for me.
I like your company...

I wish that heart on your sleeve was beating for me.
I find it hard to believe you're dreaming about me...
Track Name: Daddy's place
We live in apartment blocks
I don't cost too much.
If you think I'm an angel then treat me as such.

Come on up in your Daddy's place
There we could live easily
Come on up in your Daddy's place
You and me.

I'm hard on your pockets, love
But I'm soft to the touch.
We listen to Lover's Rock
We can't get enough..

Come on up in your Daddy's place
There we could live easily
Come on up in your Daddy's place
You and me.

Don't you even care?
Baby don't you leave me there.
Baby don't you lie to me.
Just keep on and on at me...

Come on up in your Daddy's place
There we could live easily
Come on up in your Daddy's place
You and me.
Track Name: Fine taste
It's getting too strong
This yearning to touch
You're talking a lot
But I'm not hearing much

I'm biting my tongue
I heard what you got
My best friend she told me
That you know what is what

You're a fast-working,
Sweet-talking,
Self-serving
Son of a

My patience has gone
And I just can't wait to find out
I'm right here, come on
Bring your fine taste to my mouth

Take what you want
Til you've had your fill
Never be safe
Never be still

Caught in the rain with nowhere to be
You can say what you will
But not about me

My patience has gone
And I just can't wait to find out
I'm right here, come on
Bring your fine taste to my mouth

You knew I'd succumb
And I'm just too weak to hold out
I'm right here, come on
Bring your fine taste to my mouth
Track Name: Make the sun shine
Got a feeling you don't love me no more
Got a brick put through my window and the police at my door
But late at night when I'm dying for you
I can't get no satisfaction
Because, baby only you
Make the sun shine

And what you say
I don't believe a word
Like that record that you had out
That nobody ever heard
And all my friends they may think I'm a fool
But I gotta have you back because baby only you
Make the sun shine
Track Name: Easy to bear
Well I guess I'm gonna
Move to California
Stick some flowers in my hair
Make it easy to bear

Well I guess I'm gonna
Make my time go quicker
Go out and buy some liquor, yeah
Make it easy to bear
Easier to bear..
Track Name: Porthleven Winter Blues/Country Pumpkin
Porthleven Winter Blues.

This could be the best we've ever been
Bitter wind and a cold, cold sea light up everything
Can't wait to join you there, singing some other blues
Pack you off in your winter coat and shoes...


Country Pumpkin

I take it the money didn't come
Is that why I knocked and you started to run?

I take it the money didn't come
What about my speedboat and my house in the sun?

I take it the money didn't come
Is that why you're staring down the barrel of your own gun?

I take it the money didn't come
I've seen Durham prison and it don't look much fun.

Oh, Lord knows I love you
Oh, Lord knows I do
Lord above knows I love you
But every little thing my mamma ever said about you was true.
