Mountain Home (free) 02:52
Mountain Home (Owen Temple) He's going back to Mountain Home Cedar trees and stone Said he's been gone too long He's going back to Mountain Home Live oak and limestone and rivers when it rains Big sky and cedar trees and cold clear springs Every shade of blue, every shade of green He's had gray prison walls, he's due a change of scene He's going back to Mountain Home, Cedar trees and stone Said he's been gone too long, he's going back to Mountain Home That trouble at the ranch dragged down the family name But he says he got more than his share of the blame He's been locked up in Huntsville for twenty years or so The middle of nowhere is where he wants to go He's going back to Mountain Home Cedar trees and stone Said he's been gone too long He's going back to Mountain Home Flashing yellow light intersection in town Tells travelers to take warning, but most folks don't slow down With the post office closed, the wind's the only sound He's headed home on a one way Greyhound He's going back to Mountain Home Cedar trees and stone Said he's been gone too long He's going back to Mountain Home To that hilltop all alone He's going back to Mountain Home

Medicine Man 03:49
Medicine Man (Owen Temple, Adam Carroll, Gordy Quist) All over the land he's spoken of Wise as a snake, gentle as a dove When that wolf wears sheep clothes He shakes dust off his feet before he goes He's a medicine man He's a medicine man He walks the lands, you never seen before He's on a mission, conquistador He'll be your slave, he'll be your king He'll be what you want, be your everything He's a medicine man He's a medicine man Bells and beads, he'll give you some There's a whole lot more where that comes from He'll make a sign and touch your head Make you shake and dance gonna raise the dead He's a medicine man He's a medicine man He's a medicine man He's a medicine man He'll walk on waves, he'll fix your health Get what you need to save himself Might lose your house, might lose your home But he'll give you back more than you have known He will rise your tide, he will set your sun Be your dealer, your healer, your only one He's a medicine man He's a medicine man He's a medicine man He's a medicine man

Fall in Love Every Night (Owen Temple) Boots and rhinestones Canadian tuxedoes Honky tonk zeros Neon lights Rocky Mountain beer signs Parking lot Thunderbird wine Ten 'til showtime Dim the lights Fall in love every night Metal building stage sound North Texas showdown Feeling high and lowdown Staying up all night That kid's gonna be a star But he can't find his car He used his guitar In a back room fight He falls in love every night Bouncing hot checks Surviving car wrecks Where you gonna sleep next Hold on tight Fall in love every night Drinks his own snake oil Mixed with Crown Royal Crank in tin foil Blacks and whites Played cards with Freddie King Lost everything That he got to play and sing But that's all right He falls in love every night The clothes you slept in You play the gig in Don't bother to tuck it in man It looks all right You fall in love every night You fall in love every night Fall in love every night

Old Sam 03:22
Old Sam (Owen Temple, Adam Carroll) Timber Ridge, Virginia is a mighty fine place From that soil sprung a leader of the human race He had eyes full of thunderstorms and hair like gold He was seven foot tall when he was six years old- Old Sam, Big Sam Down in Alabama in 1812 He and Andy Jackson raised all kind of hell Got shot by an arrow but he had no fear Hero was the job that he chose for his career- Old Sam, Big Sam Sam got tired of being the governor of Tennessee So the Raven flew south to be a drunk Cherokee He slapped a nasty Congressman right in the face He said y'all go to hell, I'm gonna find a better place for Old Sam, Big Sam He rambled on down to western Arkansas Kicked around Oklahoma where he took up with a squaw In those days Texas was damn near Mexico Old Sam decided next that was where he's gonna go- Old Sam, Big Sam That devil Santa Anna was a molester and a thief Getting him throwed out a Texas was a mighty big relief After swatting Santa Anna like you would a pesky fly He drank a river full of whiskey and ate a piece of pie- Old Sam, Big Sam Sam told folks not to start a Civil War But they told Sam just to go and find the door He sired eight more kids on the Gulf Coast plain They don't bear the scars but they all bear the name of Old Sam, Big Sam Sam Houston stood tall, he was true and tough That statue's pretty big, but it ain't big enough for Old Sam, for Big Sam Old Sam
