Track Name: Cherry River Line
Where'd you get those high heeled shoes
and that dress you wear so fine?
Got my shoes from a railroad man
and my dress from a driver in the mine

Now its lonesome round here
Lonesome all the time
Lonesome round here
On the Cherry River Line
Track Name: St. James Infirmary
Let her go
Let her go
God bless her
So young, so cold, so fair
Stretched out on a long white table
I saw my baby there
Track Name: Wish I Was a Mole In the Ground
My darlin is like a porcupine
My darlin is like a porcupine
He's like a porcupine
He's prickly all the time
My darlin is like a porcupine
Track Name: Spooky
In the cool of the evening
When everything is gettin kind of groovy
I call you up and ask if you'd like to go and see a movie
At first you say no-you got plans for the night
Then you stop
And say all right
Love is kind of crazy with a Spooky little girl like you
Track Name: Ocklocknee River Blues
I don't need a good man
I don't need no children
You're the only picture in my head
I don't need a good man
I don't need no children
If I can't have you
I'm already dead :)
Track Name: You Don't See It
I can't wait forever
Can't break my heart like that ...
Track Name: Cats Got the Measles & the Dog's Got the Whooping Cough
I ain't good lookin' & my teeth don't shine like pearls
I ain't good lookin' & my teeth don't shine like pearls
But I got what it takes
To get me through this cock-eyed world
Track Name: Blue Skies
Blue Skies smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see
Track Name: Cold Rain & Snow
Now you're sittin' in the shade
Countin' every dime I've made
I'm so cold & I'm hungry too
Track Name: All I have to do is Dream
When I feel blue
In the night
And I need you
To hold me tight
Whenever I want you
All I have to do is dream
