Oh I'm sorry now I've been chasing a storm That blows through a man Lord you know I do best that I can People say what they want to me Thinking that I don't already see That I got a bad man Lord you know I do best that I can Baby you're break lights are awfully red Only human nature to want to stop and see the wreck And any broken woman would understand Lord you know I do best that I can See baby I been working for next to free I ain't got no money, hope or dignity You know I'm so lonesome I can hardly stand Lord you know I do best that I can Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2006

Some time ago Some time ago I met you And now I know Now I know Baby it's through You walk out the door Your eyes are low And your shirt's not on The grass ain't mowed Around the couch in your from lawn Your skin's so pale And baby love's been a little hard on you I watch her talk I watch her talk When she's all alone She ain't got no smoke She ain't got no light She ain't got a home ohhh...... And she walks the streets Her eyes are low And her shirts half-on And a parking lot is what she's got As her front lawn And it seems to me ma'am Love's been a little hard on you Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2006

Did you like what we did Did you hear what I said That I won’t go on without you Polish copper for your time I’m in line, and I ain’t fine With the price I pay for you Did I lie, did you know I’m in love and I won’t go I won't go on…without you Pay me off, roll me on Down the river until I’m gone And a strong man will forget what he wants to We both know that I’ll go Underneath, nice and slow And a strong man will forget what he wants to Fading pictures, little frames Leather book with all the names Of people we both use to know Heaven’s high, I’m so low I ain’t got much to show For the price I pay for you Did I lie, did you know I’m in love and I won’t go I won't go on…without you Pay me off, roll me on Down the river until I’m gone And a strong man will forget what he wants to We both know that I’ll go Underneath, nice and slow And a strong man will forget what he wants to Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2006

I was born in this town I grew up feeling down Ain’t but one road running through Ain’t much for me to do Lowdownnville is where I live Lowdownville is where I met you Sun shines when you’re around Not today in Lowdownville Take my car and drive down To the other end of town Tracks running on Summer birds are gone How many times have I been last How many days have passed Since I loved you Since I loved you I was born in this town I grew up feeling down Ain’t but one road running through Ain’t much for me to do Lowdownnville is where I live Lowdownville is where I met you Sun shines when you’re around Not today in Lowdownville See my life, see my face See the years that I have chased This love And I’ve lost you Turn around, turn around You will lose your heart and will In Lowdownville In Lowdownville I was born in this town I grew up feeling down Ain’t but one road running through Ain’t much for me to do Lowdownnville is where I live Lowdownville is where I met you Sun shines when you’re around Not today in Lowdownville Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2006

This city called my name when I was 18 years old Chasing fortune and fame, but I was never told That a working man, he ain’t got the time To fix the things he broke, like this heart of mine You see, I was raised, to be real brave Not to be afraid, not to run away But the trouble here, ain’t just in my mind Ain’t no peace here I can find And everybody knows I all alone Young and stupid, and far from home I love a man who don’t love me Why don’t he love me? One hundred dollar bills, to board the bus Now I won’t cry and I won’t fuss over you, no no Close the door driver-man, and ring your bell And drive me out of this living hell You see he touched me here, and he kissed me there And he bit my tongue, and he pulled my hair And he laid me down and he stole my life Like a greedy thief with a dirty knife And everybody knows I all alone Young and stupid, and far from home I love a man who don’t love me Why don’t he love me?

I see a stranger move through town Stranger don’t let you fears turn you around I seen the devil carry a cross I seen the man with all the maps get lost around here Darkest story ever told Darkest night ever to be known Light your torches boys and get your horse Bring you lynching rope and you gun of course When they got there, nothing new When they got there, no bullets flew Oh this feeling, got your reeling and it won’t let you go Dark night of the soul Bloodied brains and tattered hats Your mind lost the war my friend, and that, that was that Seven days and seven nights, I spent in dark, now Lord, let there be light in my mind We got a criminal to catch the leader said And kill the doubt that’s slips into my head He hangs out at the edge of town by the poets well You see him boys, make him run like hell, ooohhh When they got there, nothing new When they got there, no bullets flew Oh this feeling, got your reeling and it won’t let you go Dark night of the soul Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2006

Turn around little gun You’re still so young And you’re having fun Now you killed someone My baby had me down Keeps on running round on me Only a matter of time Until her body is found Appaloosa and little gun Tearing through the desert sun Inside my mind Inside my mind Blue ribbon winning gun Pretty pony I had won And all my dreams Have died so young Polish my little gun Think I’ll have some fun There is a man across town With my heart Polish my little gun Think I’m gonna kill someone There is a man across town With my heart Little gun is on my tongue I won’t stop until I’m done There is a man across town With my heart Lyrics by Kristen Ward Music by Kristen Ward and Brad Zeffren All Rights Reserved © 2006

She looked up at me At the corner café today Before you eat that there baby Make sure you can pay for it If rich is lucky, I guess I’m poor My eyes are tired and my head is sore There's a hole in my pocket World's falling through But I ain’t got no doubt since I met you babe So I done wasted About all my years Sold out and I faked it And cried too many tears If brains are luck, guess I’m the fool Life makes you tired, life makes you cruel There's a hole in my pocket World's falling through But I ain’t got no doubt since I met you babe Under the reader board sign Glowing lights flowing by Where you been all my life? Where the hell was I? My baby was born in 1974 He came at a time when I thought there wasn’t more for me He came at a time when I thought there wasn’t more My baby was born in 1974 My baby was born in 1974 He came at a time when I thought there wasn’t more for me He came at a time when I thought there wasn’t more My baby was born in 1974 Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2006

A cheating mind It ain’t hard to find And my broken feet Lead me back each week to you And you done me wrong A cheating mind It ain't hard to find And my broken heart Leads me back to the start with you And you done me wrong Yeah…you done me wrong My babe’s got a cheating mind I know you got a cheating mind A cheating mind It ain’t hard to find Got a ball and chain And a crooked brain for you Since you done me wrong A cheating mind It ain’t hard to find Got myself to blame When you say her name And you done me wrong Yeah, you done me wrong My babe’s got a cheating mind I know you got a cheating mind A cheating mind It ain’t hard to find And it’s plain to see You ain't thinking of me You ain’t thinking of me babe And you done me wrong My babe’s got a cheating mind I know you got a cheating mind Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2006

When he walks, he walks loud And when he talks, he talks proudly And I know when he goes down He moves so slow And he’s in my guts, in my brains In my blood, in my veins I got shake, I got soul And a mind as clean a s coal for you babe I want a radio that plays more than AM I want to make it with my man I want a paycheck that covers more than one week of my living I know you understand That he’s in my guts, in my brains In my blood, in my veins I got shake, I got soul And a mind as clean a s coal for you babe What I need is a cowboy To keep me standing straight I don’t want no one trick pony Who will only keep me up late And he’s in my guts, in my brains In my blood, in my veins I got shake, I got soul And a mind as clean a s coal for you babe Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2006

To Airway Heights she’d drive When she want to die Down a lonely road I watch my Momma go Night after night, night after night You’re not the only one You think I didn’t know When I learned to love I learned to let you go Night after night, night after night She said, be strong girl Work hard girl You’ll go far girl She said I love you Take what you need girl Don’t turn around My Momma taught me how to be down I can hear the train I see your broken face And my faith is gone Without a trace Into the night, into the night He was a gentleman He was a lying man He was a cheating man I don’t understand Why it last so long, Momma he done you wrong She said, be strong girl Work hard girl You’ll go far girl She said I love you Take what you need girl Don’t turn around My Momma taught me how to be down Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2006

Sun is cold today On you're silver car You come take me away And lovin' you ain't hard for me to do Lovin' you ain't hard for me Brown hair, blue eyes You are all through me And I could lose you baby But lovin' you ain't hard for me I have grown the way I will My life has been mostly Uphill But loving you ain't hard for me And I know I'm afraid still My life has been mostly Uphill But lovin' you ain't hard for me No lovin' you ain't hard form me Written by Kristen Ward All Rights Reserved © 2006
