Track Name: Bury Me
Bury Me
By A. Ashley

It was right around midnight, we came rollin' into town
Right round Boley, Oklahoma where they tried to take me down
They're gonna bury me underneath the cold, cold ground
They're gonna bury me underneath the cold, cold ground

Fell in love with the preacher's daughter; little woman named Maybelline
She said "please don't tell my father, meanest devil you've ever seen"
He preach fire and brimstone, he preach the end of the world
And he said "Ain't no white man take away my baby girl"

Son, I'ma bury you underneath the cold, cold ground
I'ma bury you underneath the cold, cold ground

It was down by the river, we got to foolin' around
And with a first full of trouble her daddy tried to take me down
They're gonna bury me underneath the cold, cold ground
They're gonna bury me underneath the cold, cold ground

It was right around midnight, we came rollin' into town
Right round Boley, Oklahoma where they tried to take me down
Track Name: Carolina's Calling You
Carolina's Calling You
by A.Ashley

You’ve been running’ round
You’ve never settled down
You never found a town that fit you right

Been out there on your own
So far away from home
And are you tired of being alone and out of sight?

Can true love contend with...
The allure of the road
You’ve been out to find some answers, but I’m sure that you’ve been told

CHORUS
Baby, you might as well give in
Take off those walkin’ shoes
Change all of your plans
Ain’t no way you can lose
To you the highway’s fine, but little girl don’t you realize
That Carolina’s Calling You

That old train went down the track
And you never did look back
Girl, you slipped right through the cracks and you disappeared

I’ve seen all your highs and lows
And things that you never meant to show
And these are words I know that you hate to hear

But if we told you that we loved you
Would it ease your gypsy mind
Girl, I know your heart’s been heavy, but has it ever crossed your mind (you’re crazy mind)

CHORUS
Baby, you might as well give in
Take off those walkin’ shoes
Change all of your plans
Ain’t no way you can lose
To you the highway’s fine, but little girl don’t you realize
That Carolina’s Calling You

Carolina’s calling you
Carolina’s calling you
Track Name: Nothing Left to Love
Nothing Left to Love
by A. Ashley

Baby, why don't you take off that pretty black dress?
Meet me halfway and I'll give you the rest
Show me how an angel spreads her wings

Baby, why don't you take off those high heel shoes
It ain't as though you got something to lose
Unless there's a secret, darlin’, that you've been keeping from me

CHORUS
Do you think I don't know you've been out on the town?
Do you think I don't know you've been out running ‘round
Why do you think I leave a light on in the house?
But when you've had enough
There may be nothing left to love

Baby, why don't you come in and turn out the light
And just give in to my lullaby
Cause id rather rock you to sleep and hold you in my arms

CHORUS
Do you think I don't know you've been out on the town?
Do you think I don't know you've been out running ‘round
Why do you think I leave a light on in the house?
But when you've had enough
There may be nothing left to love

CHORUS
Do you think I don't know you've been out on the town?
Do you think I don't know you've been out running ‘round
Why do you think I leave a light on in the house?

But when you've had enough...
When you've had enough...
When you've had enough
There may be nothing left to love
Track Name: Water Into Wine
I have had my share of tribulations, not a few
But this is something no one ever taught me how to do
How to love a woman that don't know she's made for you
And how to turn this water into wine

Always on the move and never going nowhere fast
Always waiting around for something better than the last
Keep praying on the future, keep on paying for the past
And trying to turn this water into wine

It's been a good long run since San Diego
Babe, the years just roll on by
But baby, you should've bet me, cause if you'd let me
I would've kept you satisfied

CHORUS
So let me hold you tonight
Let me love you till it all feels right
I can't help it if I tried, and the darkness never turned to light
And I could never change this water into wine

It's been a good long run since Arizona
Girl, the years just roll on by
But baby, you should've bet me, cause if you'd let me
I would've kept you satisfied

CHORUS
So let me hold you tonight
Let me love you till it all feels right
I can't help it if I tried, and the darkness never turned to light
And I could never change this water into wine
Track Name: Warmth of Your Love
Warmth of Your Love
By A. Ashley

So we’re at our last reunion
And it’s all come down to this
Throwing angry words around
As though we’ll never feel regret

Ain’t nobody willing
To lay their weapon down
You know the silence of this bedroom
Is the perfect battleground

Don’t it seem a little cliche, darlin'
To end it all by walking out
The fire that brought this love together
Is gonna burn us to the ground

But baby you know me
And I don’t want to let you go
But if you should choose to leave her
There’s something you should know

Chorus:
Your love / is enough
It’s something so sweet that I can’t get enough
Your love / is enough
It’s something so strong that I can’t rise above
But I’m more of a man
Here in the warmth of your love

There’ve been trials and tribulations
And lord, the pain I can’t deny
But baby even though we’re hurtin'
Girl, I hate to see you cry

But baby you know me
And I don’t want to let you go
But if you should choose to leave her
There’s something you should know

Chorus:
Your love / is enough
It’s something so sweet that I can’t get enough
Your love / is enough
It’s something so strong that I can’t rise above
But I’m more of a man
Here in the warmth of your love
Track Name: Babylon
Babylon
By D. Cronk / A. Ashley

Noah told his brother to “get up onto my boat”
I guess I should've listened to all those words he spoke
Cause I went down to the river to pray and to meet the Lord
And he came, not with peace
He came to me with a sword

Moses told pharaoh “let my people go”
I guess I should've listened to all those words he wrote
Now the rover’s flowing blood and it's not that I don't care
But I've been looking for truth and I think I lost my faith somewhere

My pride got the best of me at the Tower of Babel
We were cursed with confusion there for being unfaithful
Now the river’s flowing blood down here in the name of the Lord
He came not with peace, no he came to me with a sword
