Track Name: I Like Knowing You Miss Me
Track 1. I Like Knowing You Miss Me

I found out you’ve been bad
I left town, now you’re sad

I like knowing you miss me
I like knowing your blue
I like knowing you miss me
‘Cause I don’t miss you

With her name on your tongue
I got out, it’s been fun

I like knowing you miss me
I like knowing your blue
I like knowing you miss me
‘Cause I don’t miss you

So hang on slim, I’m going to pass you by
‘Cause you’re not worth those tears you made me cry
Don’t say that I hurt you when I say were though
Don’t say that you love me
‘Cause I don’t love you

Now your bed is cold
You can’t say, you weren’t warned

I like knowing you miss me
I like knowing your blue
I like knowing you miss me
Cause I don’t miss you

I’ve packed my bags they’ll no one last try
‘Cause now I know that you’re the cheatin’ kind
Don’t say that I hurt you when I say were though
Don’t say that you love me
‘Cause I don’t love you

Track Name: Bluebird Tattoo
Track 2. Bluebird Tattoo

Album: More Songs from Circe Link!
Track #1 Bluebird Tattoo

Well it’s a Saturday night and there’s nothing to do
I’m gonna get myself a new tattoo
Ain’t no rose is gonna do
I’m gonna get myself a blue bird to remind me of you

He ain’t gonna go on my arm or my back
No this bird don’t fly with the rest of the pack
He’ll be no drinking Joe or Jack
And he won’t fly away and forget to come back

No he won’t fly away and leave his home
No he won’t fly away and leave his home
He’ll stay by my side
Blue blue bird fly

Well a weeks gone by and I’m feeling fine
Yeah the sun came out and started to shine
I’m glad you’re gone, I don’t think I mind
Because my little blue birds got ‘em waitin’ in line

Now my dance card’s full since you went away
And this here bird just found out how to play
No he’s no drag he don’t bring me down
And so I shake my blue bird every night on the town

No he won’t fly away and leave his home
No he won’t fly away and leave his home
He’ll stay by my side
Blue blue bird fly

Track Name: Paint The Town Red
Track 3. Paint The Town Red (With My Blue Heart)

Well this time I know just what to do
And I might not act like you would want me to
You won’t find me hanging ’round
This girls going out, yeah this time I’ll paint the town red with my blue heart

So this time you don’t have to say it twice
But I’m sure I paid much more than you’re askin’ price
It’s a sad and simple waste, I gotta rown you frommy taste
So this time I’ll paint the town red with my blue heart

‘Cause my blue heart has cried enough for you
And it’s a shame what you have put us through
So don’t wonder where I’ll be found
I’ve gone to burn the whole world down
Yeah this time I’ll paint the town red with my blue heart

Red are your roses now spent ’cause we’re through
Red is my lipstick I once wore for you
Blue is my new dress I’m wearing tonight
Blue are your tear drops, it’s your turn to cry

So this time you don’t have to scream and shout
That old door won’t hit my ass on the way out
But remember I love and when you’ve nothing left to do
You can go and paint the town red with my blue heart

‘Cause my blue heart has cried enough for you
And it’s a shame what you have put us through
So don’t wonder where I’ll be found
I’ve gone to burn the whole world down
Yeah this time I’ll paint the town red with my blue heart

Track Name: Cheshire Moon
Track 4. Cheshire Moon

Now when the night is late and you’re longing for me
Just turn your face up into the darkened skies
You’ll see a slip of light as the mornings dawning
Behold the reckless jewel I have gone to find

And now the Cheshire Moon will guide me
With his smile, oh yeah
You know the Cheshire Moon will try to drive you wild

I’ve been down the rabbit hole
I’ve sailed on a sea of my tears
If there’s one thing I’ve learned
It’s leave no stone unturned
Who needs regret through the years

So if you dare to follow the path behind me
Just set aside you fears and begin to climb
Much better lost than stuck in the mire behind you
At least the journey there will be quite a time

And now the Cheshire Moon will guide me
With his smile, oh yeah
Beware the Cheshire Moon will try to drive you wild

Track Name: Every Blessing Is A Curse In Disguise
Track 5. Every Blessing is a Curse in Disguise

I woke up this morning and pulled back my blinds
The sun it was shinning too big and too bright
I wish it was raining because on this day
I’m putting my baby into his grave

I sit on a high hill under a big sky
With people gathered who bid their good-byes
Upon the soft ground our chairs they do sit
So nice for the shoveler who digs his pit

Every blessing’s a curse in disguise
‘Cause god and the devil conspire
You’ll listen and learn if you’re wise
Every blessing’s a curse in disguise

Oh sad sad life, oh sad sad life
Where even your sorrow wears smiles
Yeah, sad sad life

Well I am alone now with nothing in view
I have only one wish to die in my youth
For I know I’ll live long, it’s our family way
And I’ll be alone ‘till judgment day

Every blessing’s a curse in disguise
‘Cause god and the devil conspire
You’ll listen and learn if you’re wise
Every blessing’s a curse in disguise

Track Name: Let's Go Together
Track 6. Let’s Go Together

The days grow longer and the nights are worse
I’m oh so thread bare with an empty purse
Wicked on Monday woeful on Tuesday
Wasted on Wednesday, could it get any worse?
I broke a mirror what more can I say?
It rains on my house each and very day
Bad luck has found me bent down on one knee
Busted and broken there’s no hoping for me

So let’s go together and drink our selves sick
Let’s face the stormy weather by taking a trip
It’s wonderful it’s wild on cyanide
Let’s fiddle with the breaks and take a drive

Don’t say you won’t, don’t say you might
I don’t care if it’s wrong
Cause when I’m with you it’s right

We might come back you know so make a toast
It could be fun to wind up as a ghost
Dreaming of dying no harm in trying
We could be dancing dressed in nothing but bones

So let’s go together and jump off a bridge
Let’s write a suicide letter and then slit our wrists
Lets walk along the freeways at night
Let’s open up the stove and snuff the light
So let’s go together, baby let’s go
So let’s go together, baby let’s go
So let’s go together, baby let’s go

Track Name: High Roller
Track 7. High Roller

High roller man, what cha’ tryin’ to do to me?
High roller man , you’ve been hanging round
I see right through, you know it’s plain
That you’re trouble by the score

Now I don’t care that you live up on the hill
And I don’t care that you drive a big car
I don’t care that you wear those fancy suits
And I don’t want you to make me a star
Mama gave me something special I know
It’s a lesson everyone has been told
Every man on this earth
Has to measure his worth by his good deeds
And not by his dough

High roller man, what cha’ tryin’ to do to me?
High roller man ,you’ve been hanging round
I see right through, you know it’s plain
That you’re trouble by the score

So you see that riches don’t impress me
I’m old fashioned even simple you see
Other girls in the world may want diamonds and pearls
But love has no price tag to me
Don’t misconstrue that I might like you
It’s of no use pick pocket smile
To bust this lock you would have to blow it
With more than what you’ve got
With more than what you’ve got

High roller man, what cha’ tryin’ to do to me?
High roller man ,you’ve been hanging round
I see right through, you know it’s plain
That you’re trouble by the score
High roller man, what cha’ tryin’ to do to me?
High roller man ,you’ve been hanging round
I see right through, you know it’s plain
That you’re trouble by the score

Track Name: Oh Lady!
Track 8. Oh Lady!

Oh lady now, oh lady now
Oh lady now he sang beneath my night window
Oh lady now, oh lady now he sang in the bright moonlight

Please lady let me see
Come on down and sit on my knee
I wanna love you all night long
Until the early light of dawn

Oh lady now, oh lady now
Oh lady now he sang beneath my night window
Oh lady now, oh lady now he sang in the bright moonlight

The way she combs her hair
The way she glides the stairs
The way she says to me, “Mr. No!
Leave my door or I will go
Down to precinct fifty five and call the law on you!”

Oh lady now, oh lady now
Oh lady now he sang beneath my night window
Oh lady now, oh lady now he sang in the bright moonlight

Hey lady I love you
I like you in your slip of light blue
I wanna to come up and hold you hand
And be your only lover man

Oh lady now, oh lady now
Oh lady now he sang beneath my night window
Oh lady now, oh lady now he sang in the bright moonlight

Track Name: Sorrow For Three
Track 9. Sorrow for Three

He loves her and I love him
She thinks I am just a friend
Two for lies and one for truth
And it’s sorrow for three

Friday they go shooting pool
By the jukebox I’m his fool
One big joke but twice as cruel
When it’s sorrow for three

This time it’s one more round of sympathy
Bartender make it fast oh can’t you see
My number’s coming up, he’s calling me
So make it sorrow for three

Sorrow, sorrow rue the day
When he came upon my way
I know he’s no good they say
But I choose sorrow, sorrow anyway

Tender kisses holding hands
Damn those golden wedding bands
One time burned but two times scorned
I’ve got sorrow for three

Maybe they well break apart
If they do I’ll be on guard
Two wrongs could make one thing right
Till then it’s sorrow for three

This time it’s one more round of sympathy
Bartender make it fast oh can’t you see
My number’s coming up, he’s calling me
So make it sorrow for three

Track Name: Travelin' Daddy
Track 10. Travelin’ Daddy

I fill my gin glass, I throw my head back
I wash down these travelin’ blues
I lost my good man down in the Bad Lands
I wanna bring him back home to me

Travelin’ daddy your evil ways
Got me swimming in a haze
Travelin’ daddy I’ll make you stay and you won’t go travelin’ no more

I sing a sad song because my man’s gone
He skipped town with the brown bottle flu
A boxcar mister, a crazy drifter, a carpet bagger with a hole in his shoe

Travelin’ daddy your coal dark eyes
Got me believin’ all your lies
If your wantin’ to leave me then all I can say
Travelin’ daddy you’ll be back on day

I smell the night air, I comb my long hair
I break bones like a Southern hoodoo
I burn your picture, I call for twisters
I hold to tight my lover’s juju

Travelin’ daddy your long dark hair
I see your face everywhere
But while your are running you’ll soon understand
Travelin’ daddy your days are few
Cause this woman’s gonna get you
Travelin Daddy, travelin Man…..

Track Name: Love's Train
Track 11. Love’s Train

Hands on my hips I smile real big and throw my hair back
I wink my eye and purse my lips, what could I lack?
Yes sir this one could do, but I’m not sure
No sir don’t say word just ride on through

Love’s train passing me by but that’s how it goes
Love’s train passing me by
And I’ll never know why I missed that train again

I pack my bags I tell my friends but it’s getting old
I am afraid to take that ride truth be told
No deal he’s not for me, but I’m not sure
Yes sir he’s looking good but let’s wait and see

Love’s train passing me by and that’s how it goes
Love’s train passing me by
And I’ll never know why I missed that train again

I want to ride that burning steel
But I’ve got to drive see that’s the deal
Don’t wanna lose control so I don’t go
Don’t wanna break my heart

I’ll wear a hole right in the ground at this old station
Last engine through that I have seen been quite some time
Yes sir I look a fool, don’t be so sure
No way, could be today, and it might be you

Love’s train passing me by look there it goes, I tell you
Love’s train passing me by
I’ll never know why I missed that train again
