Track Name: Thank Goodness
I know you always liked country music
But I guess you never meant to be a song
Well maybe darlin someday when I am famous
You will find yourself singin along


When I fell in love with country music
I knew I gave my whole heart away
But that don’t mean that funk and punk and disco
Don’t make me tap my toes every day


CHORUS:

Thank goodness for cryin and lyin
Thank goodness for heart break and fear
Thank goodness for the fire of desire
Cuz it burned up and burned down my wasted years



I don’t mind a little cheese in my country music
Well nothin goes so well with a little whine
And the cure for excessive thinking is excessive drinkin’
A little whiskey before my beer and I’ll be fine



Nothing gets old in country music
You can use that 1, 4, 5 a thousand times
If only the same were true for life
By now I might be somebodys wife


CHORUS

Thank goodness

Thank god
Track Name: Derrick Lights
Lyrics:

Class B license work
Driving dual trannie trucks all day
To drilling rigs and loading bays
Lots of overtime to make my pay
They think I’m old at 55
They think I’m quiet most the time



And I like to drive at night
Just to see the derrick lights
I like to drive at night
Just to see the derrick lights



It’s a pretty fine stretch of land
Like to own a piece of it someday
But I’m sending too much take home pay
To kids and an ex-wife in L.A.
Every check I send home in the mail
To a love that long since failed



And I like to drive at night
Just to see those derrick lights
I like to drive at night
Just to see those derrick lights



Biloxi, Fairbanks, Baton Rouge, Midland
Booming, busting, moving on again

Been living here a couple years
Never thought I’d ever call it home
And I lay my head down west of town
In a man camp that the company owns
Some days just feels like doing time
But you come and go anytime you like



And I like to drive at night
Just to see the derrick lights
I like to drive at night
Just to see the derrick lights
Yeah I like to drive at night
Track Name: Ruthie's Song
There is more to Mountains

Than I’ve ever known

A secret I lately beheld



And there’s more to rivers

The water and the stone

More to me than flesh and bone



Good Lord, the sun is setting in my eyes

At my pearl I shall not shield them

For I’ve never seen such beauty as this

Blind me with your light oh Lord, dear Lord

Blind me with you light oh Lord



Good Lord, the day she came into this world

I knew my life had forever change

For I’ve never know such a feeling as this

Bind me with your love oh Lord, dear Lord

Bind me with your love oh Lord



There is more to Mountains

Than I’ve ever known

A secret I lately beheld



And there’s more to rivers

Then water and the stone

More to me than flesh and bone



Good Lord, the sun is setting in my eyes

At my pearl I shall not shield them

For I’ve never known such beauty as this

Blind me with your light oh Lord, dear Lord

Blind me with you light oh Lord
Track Name: Miles Down The Road
Driving down the road
See how far we go
Just can’t seem to get you off my mind
The months and the miles to be without your smile
I just keep rollin down the line

CHORUS:

I just can’t wait
To see your smiling face
Miles and Miles and Miles down the road
Days they pass
Some not so fast
I’ll see you miles and miles down the road



Cold wind blows

The ground has gone and froze
I ain’t seen the sun for days and days
But now that you’re here
The sky is so clear
My worries are far away



CHORUS
Cold wind blows
The ground has gone and froze
I ain’t seen the sun for days and days
But now that you’re here
The sky is so clear
My worries are far away



CHORUS
