Track Name: Sugar Babe/Cider
Well I ain't got no use
I ain't got no use for that red rocking chair
Got no sugar baby now
Got no sugar honey baby now

Well I laid her in the shade
I laid her in the shade, gave her every dime I made
What more could a poor boy do
What more could a poor boy do

Some old rounder come along
Some old rounder come along with a mouth full of gold
Rounder stole my greenback roll
Got no sugar honey baby now

Well I've done all I can do
I've done all I can do and I've said all I can say
Send it to your mama next payday
Send it to your mama next payday

Who'll call me honey?
Who'll call me honey and who'll sing that song?
Who'll rock the cradle when I'm gone?
Who'll rock the cradle when I'm gone?

Oh I'll call you honey
I'll call you honey and I'll sing that song
I'll rock the cradle when you're gone
I'll rock the cradle when you're gone

Well I ain't got no use
I ain't got no use for that red rocking chair
Got no sugar baby now
I got no sugar honey baby now
Track Name: Falsehearted
tonight we’ll pretend
let all the mystery sink in
we’ll pretend we don’t have feelings anymore
we’ve flushed them down the drain
we’ve sent them with sparrows to foreign, distant lands

‘cause we still reach for each other with blurred lines
but I don’t miss you most of all I only miss the company
you kept those windows breezy
but I still want you gone

but if you should return, gauge out your eyes
if you should return, take out your heart
for I don’t want you feeling
but if you should return
I’m already gone
I’m not sorry that I left you so falsehearted
But I’m so sorry that I left you so falsehearted

‘cause in your mind lives an old man
who’s never pleased or satisfied
he cries
over loves he hasn’t found yet
I know you’re lonesome
I know you’re scared
but you must find it
on your own this time

and I’m sick of stories
‘cause I feel I’m always living them
I’m drowning in my sweetest dreams
and smiling in my nightmares
'cause I don’t fear death
I’ll send my ashes with sparrows to you
I’ll send them with ashes to your door

but if you should return, gauge out your eyes
if you should return, take out your heart
for I don’t want you feeling
but if you should return
I’m already gone
I’m not sorry that I left you so falsehearted
But I’m so sorry that I left you so falsehearted

you made your own mess
the garden that you planted stays but molds and rots with every day
you brewed your own storms
you broke your own heart
you won’t break mine
'cause I’m indestructable
Track Name: Montville Song
Well I've been feeling restless
Stuck inside these walls of snow and ice
And I've been getting breathless
Just thinking about those lovely Montville skies

Well I've been holed up tightly
Waiting patiently in the cold
But this New England winter
Can't shake the stirring in my soul

Oh, take me back
To where I belong
Oh, take me back
To the sky, the grass, the sun, the trees, the songs

I want to hear their voices
To hear the songs I know so well
And I want to taste the nighttime
Surround me with the sweet campfire smell

Oh, take me back
To where I belong
Oh, take me back
To the sky, the grass, the sun, the trees, the songs

Every year I find my heart amidst those northern pines
Every year I find my heart between those melody lines

The nights seem so endless
The afternoons a lazy dream
In Montville the stars shine brighter
And life is as sweet as it seems

Oh, take me back
To where I belong
Oh, take me back
To the sky, the grass, the sun, the trees, the songs
To the sky, the grass, the sun, the trees, the songs
Track Name: June, July, August
it's summertime in the country
I guess I'll be leaving soon
it's summertime in Maine
I guess I'll be going soon

but June, July and August said
that it'll be fine
yeah June, July and August said
that it's alright

I've never been a talker
just a dancer and a friend
I've never been a talker
but July might see that end

but June, July and August said
that it'll be fine
yeah June, July and August said
that it's alright

June it ate us up
I think I love you now
June it ate us up
I'm not so sad anymore

but June, July and August said
that it'll be fine
yeah June, July and August said
that it's alright

but I'll tell you every day
I'll tell you every day
I'll tell you every day
that I'll miss the country most
that I'll miss the country most

but June, July and August said
that it'll be fine
yeah June, July and August said
that it's alright
Track Name: City
I'd like to tell you now
that I don't know what I'm doing
I don't know who I'm fooling
if anyone at all

I'm perched upon the edge
of all I've ever dreamed of
if I ever slip up
please don't catch me when I fall

but you can show me how the city looks on you tonight
let me take you up beyond my fears
we'll sing each other through the dark until the sunlight appears

you know as well as I
that everything is changing
all the buildings rearranging
and we've still got time

but all these miles
leave me shut up and repenting
my thoughts are left fermenting
like moonshine

so please, just show me how the city looks on you tonight
let me take you up beyond my fears
we'll sing each other through the dark until the sunlight appears

rain falls upon the fields
almost midnight and I'm leaving
my heart isn't grieving
while this night lingers on

dark clouds all above me
but I know the storm will pass
don't move too fast
when we're ready, I'll come along

and you can show me how the city looks on you tonight
let me take you up beyond my fears
we'll sing each other through the dark until the sunlight appears

oh please, just show me how the city looks on you tonight
let me take you up beyond my fears
we'll sing each other through the dark until the sunlight appears
Track Name: Fall On My Knees
You told me one, you told me two
You told me ten thousand lies, little girl
You told me ten thousand lies

You told me more lies than the stars in the sky
And you'll never get to heaven when you die, little girl
Never get to heaven when you die

'Cause I'm fallin' on my knees
And I'm beggin' you please
Won't you come along and stand by me, little girl
Won't you come along and stand by me

Well I wish to the lord that I'd never been born
Or died when I was young, little girl
Died when I was young

For I never would have kissed your red ruby lips
Or heard your lying tongue, little girl
Heard your lying tongue

'Cause I'm fallin' on my knees
And I'm beggin' you please
Won't you come along and stand by me, little girl
Won't you come along and stand by me

Well my suitcase is packed
I ain't never coming back
And it's goodbye my honey, I'm gone, I'm gone
And it's goodbye my honey, I'm gone

Well I look up and I look down
I look down that lonesome road, little girl
Look down that lonesome road

'Cause I'm fallin' on my knees
And I'm beggin' you please
Won't you come along and stand by me, little girl
Won't you come along and stand by me

Well the longest train that I ever saw
Was fourteen coaches long, little girl
Fourteen coaches long

And the only one that I ever loved
Is on that train and gone, little girl
On that train and gone

'Cause I'm fallin' on my knees
And I'm beggin' you please
Won't you come along and stand by me, little girl
Won't you come along and stand by me

'Cause I'm fallin' on my knees
And I'm beggin' you please
Won't you come along and stand by me, little girl
Won't you come along and stand by me
