Outlaw Pete

He was born a little baby on the Appalachian Trail
At six months old he’d done three months in jail
He robbed a bank in his diapers and his little bare baby feet
All he said was “Folks, my name is Outlaw Pete.”

I’m Outlaw Pete!
I’m Outlaw Pete!
Can you hear me?

At twenty-five a mustang pony he did steal
And they rode around and ’round on heaven’s wheel
Father Jesus, I’m an outlaw killer and a thief
And I slowed down only to sow my grief

I’m Outlaw Pete!
I’m Outlaw Pete!
Can you hear me?

He cut his trail of tears across the countryside
And where he went, women wept and men died
One night he woke from a vision of his own death
Saddled his pony and rode her deep into the West
Married a Navajo girl and settled down on the res
And as the snow fell he held that beautiful daughter to his chest

I’m Outlaw Pete!
I’m Outlaw Pete!
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

Out of the East on an Irish stallion came Bounty Hunter Dan
His heart quickened and burned by the need to get his man
He found Pete peacefully fishing by the river, pulled his gun and got the drop
He said, “Pete, you think you’ve changed, but you have not.”
He cocked his pistol, pulled the trigger and shouted, “Let it stop!”
Pete drew a knife from his boot, threw it and pierced Dan through the heart
Dan smiled as he lay in his own blood dying in the sun
Whispered in Pete’s ear, “We cannot undue these things we’ve done.”

You’re Outlaw Pete!
You’re Outlaw Pete!
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

For forty days and nights Pete rode and did not stop
Till he sat high upon an icy mountain top
He watched a hawk on a desert up draft slip and slide
Moved to the edge and dug his spurs deep into his pony’s side

Some say Pete and his pony vanished over the edge
Some say they remain frozen high upon that icy ledge
The young Navajo girl washes in the river, skin so fair
And braids a piece of Pete’s buckskin chaps into her hair

Outlaw Pete!
Outlaw Pete!
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

Queen of the Supermarket

There’s a wonderful world where all you desire
and everything you’ve longed for is at your fingertips
Where the bittersweet taste of life is at your lips
Where aisles and aisles of dreams awaits you
and the cool promise of ecstasy fills the air
At the end of each working day she’s waiting there

I’m in love with Queen of the Supermarket
As the evening sky turns blue a dream awaits in aisle number two

With my shopping cart I move through the heart of
a sea of fools so blissfully unaware,
that they’re in the presence of something wonderful and rare
The way she moves behind the counter,
beneath her white apron her secrets remain hers
As she bags the groceries, her eyes so bored and sure she’s unobserved

I’m in love with Queen of the Supermarket
There’s nothing I can say
Each night I take my groceries and I drift away
And I drift away

Guidance from the gods above
At night I pray for the strength to tell her
why I love, I love, I love, I love her so
I take my place in the checkout line
For a moment her eyes meet mine
I’m lifted up, lifted up, lifted up, lifted up, away

I’m in love with Queen of the Supermarket
Though her company cap covers her hair,
nothing can hide the beauty waiting there, the beauty waiting there
I’m in love with Queen of the Supermarket
I’m in love with Queen of the Supermarket

As I lift my groceries in to my car
I turn back for a moment and catch her smile, that blows this whole fucking place apart
I’m in love with Queen of the Supermarket
I’m in love with Queen of the Supermarket

What Love Can Do

There’s a pillar in the temple where I carved your name
There’s a soul sitting said and blue
Now the remedies you’ve taken are all in vain

Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do
Darling I can’t stop the rain
Or turn your black sky blue
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do

Well now our truth lay shattered
We stood at world’s end
There’s a dead sun rose in view
As if any of this matters, a kiss me friend

Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do
Darling we can’t stop this train
When it comes crashing through
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do

On the bench you lie all is nails and rust
And the love you’ve given’s turned ashes and dust
When the hope you’ve gathered’s drifted to the wind
It’s you and I now
It’s you and I now

Here our memory lay corrupted
And our city lay dry
And I make this vow to you
Here where it’s blood for blood
And an eye for an eye

Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do
Here we bear the mark of Cain
And let the light shine through
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do
Let me show you what love can do

This Life

A bang then stardust in your eyes
A billion years with just this night
In a way it will be alright

A blackness then the light of a million stars
as you slip into my car
The evening sky strike sparks

This life, this life and then the next
With you I have been blessed
What more can you expect?

At night at my telescope alone
this emptiness I roam,
searching for a home

The stars, a brief string of shining charms
rushing in right out of our arms
into the drifting dark

This life, this life and then the next
With you I have been blessed
What more can you expect?

This life, this life and then the next
I finger the hem of your dress
My universe at rest

We reach for starlight all night long
but gravity is too strong
Chained to this earth we go on and on and on and on and on
A million sighs cresting were you stood
a beauty in the neighborhood
This lonely planet never looked so good

This life, this life and then the next
With you I have been blessed
What more can you expect?

This life, this life and then the next
I finger the hem of your dress
My universe at rest

Good Eye

I was standing by the river, where the cold, black water runs
I was standing by the river, where the cold, black water runs
I had my good eye to the dark, and my blind eye to the sun

I had all of teh riches, I had each and every one
I had all of the riches, I had each and every one
I had my good eye to the dark, and my blind eye to the sun

Well I swore to you my darlin’, you were the only one
Well I swore to you my darlin’, you were the only one
And my good eye to the dark, and my blind eye to the sun

Tomorrow Never Knows

Where the cold wind blows
Tomorrow Never Knows

Where your sweet smile goes
Tomorrow Never Knows

You and me we’ve been standing here, my dear
waiting for that time to come
where the green grass grows
Tomorrow Never Knows

In the field your long hair flows
down by the tail end of the tracks
beneath the water tower
i carried you on my back
over the rusted spikes of taht highway of steel
when no more thunder sounds
Where the turn goes
Tomorrow Never Knows

Where he who waits for the day’s riches will be lost
In the whispering tide
Where the river flows
Tomorrow Never Knows

Kingdom of Days

With you I don’t hear the minutes ticking by
I don’t feel the hours as they fly
I don’t see the summer as it wanes
Just a subtle change of light upon your face

Walk Away, walk away, walk away, walk away
This is our kingdom of days

I watched the sun as it rises and sets
I watched the moon trace its arch with no regret
My jacket round your shoulders, the falling leaves
The wet grass on our backs as the autumn breeze drifts through the trees

Walk away, walk away, walk away, walk away
This is our kingdom of days
This is our kingdom of days

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I do
You whisper than prove it, than prove it, than prove it, to me baby

When I count my blessings and you’re mine for always
We laughed beneath the covers
and counted wrinkles and grays

Sing away, sing away, sing away, sing away
Sing away, sing away, my darling we’ll sing away
This is our kingdom of days
This is our kingdom of days
This is our kingdom of days
This is our kingdom of days
This is our kingdom of days

May the rising sun caress and bless your soul throughout your life,

and let your love shine down

The Last Carnival

Sun down, sun down
They’re taking all the tents down
Where have you gone my handsome Billy?

Sun down, sun down
The carnival trains leave town
Where are you now darling Billy?

We won’t be dancing together on the high wire
Facing the lions with you at my side anymore
We won’t be breathing the smoke and the fire
On the midway

Hanging from the trapeze,
My wrists waiting for your wrists
Two daredevils high upon the wall of death
You throw the knife, it lands inches from my head
Sun down

Moon rise, moon rise
The light that was in your eyes is gone away
Daybreak, daybreak
The singing you had made me ache is gone

We’ll be riding the train without you tonight
The train that keeps on moving
Its black smoke scorching the evening sky
Millions of stars shining above us like every soul living and dead
It’s been gathered together by God
Sing a hymn over your bones

Sun down, sun down
Empty are the fairgrounds
Where are you now handsome Billy?
