Mama, how's the corn growin' out behind the house?
How's that old wind blowin' down south?
People are different out here
Like you said theyīd be
But most times the one that feels different
I can see your eyes shine
As I drove away,
You and daddy standinī there as I was
Mary Can You Come Outside
Mary and her man live in a two-bedroom beside me.
Used to see her in the hall
And I'd her on the street
But lately she ain't comin' around no more
She hides indoors
Afraid of what the world might say if they knew,
What I know.
Mary, can you come outside?
Take a walk with me in the sunshine?
Middle America Saturday Night
Thank god it's a Saturday night
Down by the riverside.
Cheerleaders in the back of the bed
With them tailgates down.
Speakers up and the radio on
Don't matter who's singing a song.
Country music or Rock'n'Roll-
We'll play it all night long.
Just raising a little hell.
More Than I Deserve
Livin' with me, it ain't easy
But I do it every day
And sometimes even now
I wanna run away.
But there you are
You're tryin' to please me,
Darlin' you stand your ground
It's more than I deserve.
Iīm a little heavy
Waste boundinī down...
Got a zero in the bank
On my account.
Itīs been a week since sheīs been home-
Thatīs seven days of on my own
Thatīs my number baby,
Gonna lay my money down.
My destination is dependinī on the right turn
Well given the tall grass youīre livinī in
Itīs not ideal to keep fire in your life.
And the Delta Winds keep pickinī on me
As Iīm makinī it down the line.
Sorry to burn so unexpectedly
But it ainīt goinī out with the rain in your eyes.
Mississippi burninī in the middle of
The raging wind tonight
