Carry Me Home

ATMOSPHERE "Sad Clown Bad Spring #12"
[Hook] "Got to change my way of living Got to change my style" [Verse 1] He remembers little bit of his childhood Sometimes bad, sometimes good But he never was one to blame today's grey sky on last week's rain So he see's everything face value Looks grim, it tastes bad too There's nothing to do except dupe, push down the wall and get through it I swear to god it's too stretched Too easy to slip or lose steps And the taller you are, the harder you fall that's why a lot of us crawl Mumma, please don't look now I've gotta walk over people I've took down It ain't as pretty as you probably think It's gonna take more than soap and a sink Tomorrow he'll drink to the guilt of every cheap wooden bridge that he's built Bury those skeletons in his head til you pick him up and carry him to bed [Hook] [Verse 2] Swimming through alcohol and woman Gets some gold spray paint for that lemon Everything he's got is not a given rock bottom on the flipside of top billin Not a victim, fuck the sympathy Figure it out, and kill the bitch in me Poor a little liquor out and call it a victory They said the sky was limit free No, don't trust none of these people Won't give him enough to love me for me so even when they welcome me into their kingdom Can't bring self to believe them It goes, folk hard tryna act like no flaw Turn it up til it burns that stove top Mr know it all, bad boy showoffs Red lights, no stops Mumma, this can't be the boy you raised me to be The drama, depression Afraid that it must be the Daley in me that's crazy Carry me home - take care of your baby [Hook] Don't wanna live like that, no Don't wanna live like that, no

Snowflake

JASON CHEN
[Verse 1] It gets a little colder All the leaves are gone And it feels like it's freezing cold Right down to the bone I really wanna see you I Wanna let you know On this snowy christmas day baby I'm coming home [Pre-Chorus] I don't need no presents You are all that I need [Chorus] Snowflakes fall in the winter But you're the one to catch my eye You light up the sky when you shimmer Outshine the snowy white If I could pull you out of the sky On this Christmas day In my eyes You're the only snowflake [Verse 2] It gets a little sweeter When I see your face This year we're making Memories that can't be erased Waiting for you to join me Under the mistletoe It finally feels like it's christmas (any)Where you are is my home All I want for Christmas this year Is to be with you, hold you close You are one in a million You're my only snowflake

SHOOTER JENNINGS "The Wolf"
Well if life's a bowl of cherries Why is mine the pits Well I feel like crap from the bottom of my boots to my hat to my fingertips I wanna get drunk get stoned get high and hang out with my friends And all I need is a woman's warmth And that's where you come in I wanna get high and then get higher Every city is just a little bit different in the same way I wanna get drunk and then get drunker Live every minute to the limit till the end of my days Well the bus pulls up the honky tonk And there's a line around the honky-block Ya know, that's what these crackers love to see Ya see I threw out my fishing line and honey I caught you When after the show in the back of the bus Oh sweetheart I know what you wanna do You wanna high and then get higher Every city is just a little bit different in the same way Wanna get drunk and then get drunker Spend every minute to the limit till the end of my days Now sit down honey I'm gonna tell you the truth for the first time Oh no dinner no movie no flowers no malls no suit no tie no cell phone calls no promises popcorn roller skates diamond rings or makin' cakes no brand new fast cars ice cream candy bars checkin' in callin' back no (do you think I'm fat) kiss me once kiss me twice damn you feel nice thank you dear do you think I might see you next year? Stoned and then get stoneder Every woman's just a little bit different in the same way I wanna get drunk and then get drunker Yeah live every minute to the limit till the end of my days Oh yeah spend every minute to the limit till the end of my days

Christmas As I Knew It

JOHNNY CASH "The Christmas Spirit"
One day near Christmas when I was just a child Mama called us together and mama tried to smile She said you know the cotton crop hadn't been too good this year There's not a lot of spending money and well at least we're all here I hope you won't expect a lot of Christmas presents Just be thankful that there is plenty to eat That'll make things a little more pleasant And us kids got to thinking how really blessed we were At least we were all healthy and most of all we had her Roy cut down a pine oak tree and we drug it home Jack and me Daddy killed a squirrel and Louise made the bread Reba decorated the tree with popcorn strings before we went to bed Mama and daddy sacrificed because this Christmas was kind of lean After all there was the babies Tom and Joanne And babies need a few things I whittled a whistle for my brother Jack And though we disagreed now and then When I gave Jack that whistle he knew I thought the world of him Mama made the girl's dresses out of flower sacks And when she ironed them down You couldn't tell that they hadn't come from town A sharecropper family across the road didn't have it as good as us They didn't even have a light and it was way past dusk And mama said, "Well I bet they don't even have coal oil Let alone apples and oranges and such" Me and Jack took a jar of coal oil nd some hickernuts we'd found We walked to the sharecropper's porch and set 'em down A poor old ragged lady eased open the door She picked up the coal oil and hickernuts and said "I sure do thank you" and quickly closed the door We started back home me and Jack And about halfway we stopped looked back And in the sharecropper's window at last was a light So for one of the neighbors and for us it was a good Christmas night Christmas came and Christmas went Christmas that year was heaven sent And my daddy put on his rubber boots And paced the floor waiting for the thaw Back home in Dyess Arkansas
