Track Name: The No Love Blues
Well she don't mind how I drink in the morning and smoking ol' loosies well that gets her going but she don't love me, it makes me bewildered. You'll never be her you were just a good filler.

because you don't like my old friends and I can't be more than a man and you can't get over my past well Darlin' thats why our love cannot last.

You said that you'd be the best gal when we met but I don't think that I've seen her yet. You nag me and beg me, you scream and you shout. But that's only half the reasons why I moving out.

Because you don't like my old friends and I can't be more than a man and you can't get over my past well Darlin' thats why our love cannot last.

Well you'd rather stay home and sleep in your bed while she'd rather pass out on the floor instead. Well I don't think I'll be happy without her you must see why our love's in the gutter

because you don't like my old friends and I can't be more than a man and you can't get over my past well Darlin' thats why our love cannot last.

And you don't like my old ways and I can't find reasons to stay and you think my life is to fast well Honey that's why our love cannot last, little Darlin' thats why our love cannot last.
Track Name: John and Mary
Hold this while I try to swallow fire
in a rain storm by the coast.
Fuck this they all turned out to be liars
about the things we held so close

You'll be Queen of the ocean
and I'll be King of the sea

They were drowning in the waves
while we watched them from a boat.
They tried to grab onto the railings
but that won't help them keep afloat.

You'll be Queen of the ocean
and I'll be King of the sea.
Track Name: Wild Horses
Two wild horses been running this town. They're too wild and they steal the shine but they keep dragging me down.

Took my money and split. They went to catch the drift. Went down to Arkansas and I'll tell you once for all, they'll take all they can lift.

Two wild horses keep pushing me around. stole my bed and they want me dead. They'll make a blue whale drown

Oh my family is broken they can't stand the scent. Went up to new york city and I got all their pity but that all came and went.

Two wild horses finish what they began and now I'm feeling cold and I'm getting old but they're my only friends.
Track Name: The Can't Play The Banjo Blues
Well you bring me down
Well you prattle about
and it hurts my heart just to know the truth
Well you, poor you.

Well you called me out
and you're hustlin' around
and it hurt my heart when I realized the truth
There's only one thing care about and that is you.

Well it brings me down tonight.

Well you're ruining my swoons
and you're salting my wounds
and I heard sometimes you like the abuse
will all your heart you strive to be no use

and it bring me down tonight
Track Name: The Waiting Blues
Well you set out for the sea and thats why it bothers me because you've been gone for awhile and it's left me in denial.
and I've been talking to your grave and it took my heart away.When memories filled my mind it was only a matter of time.

I heard the people talk but it's written all in chalk so I can wipe it all away and hear your voice some day.
Well I've been sitting in the back just to leave myself intact because I've been slowly breaking down, scattered my organs through the town.

And it makes me feel bad, well it makes me feel like you're not coming back.

I've been searching for years and you've dug up all my fears why do you go out of your way to take back everything you say?
And when you closed that open door you took back all those thing you swore I hope someday they'll understand just why I must pretend.

Because it makes me feel bad and it makes me feel like you're not coming back
