Mama’s been gone for a week or so I hope she comes home soon The girls come in and they treat me good But I hope she comes home soon Because my body’s aching and my body’s tired Although the sun caresses my back I like the gritty earth up against my skin In the corner of the garden Come on home mama, please come home I’m hanging by a thread and I don’t have long The spirit is willing but the body’s almost gone Come on home mama, hurry home I’m hanging by a thread and I don’t have long I’m waiting for you so I can say my last goodbye Before returning to the Garden My mama’s voice is on the end of the line From four thousand miles away I held on as long as I could but I don’t have another day It’s been a sweet life, it was a gift bestowed But the time has come for me to lay down my load The price of love is your heart cracked open wide But have faith now, mama, that the spirit abides And I’ll find you on the other side And in the meantime you know where to find me… In the corner of the garden A year has come and a year has gone His spirit breathes as I sing his song The corn grows high and vine tendrils long In his corner of the garden. It was a sweet life, it was a gift bestowed But the time had come for him to lay down his load The price of love is my heart cracked open wide Oh but I’ll try to have faith that the spirit abides And I’ll find him on the other side And in the meantime he knows where to find me… In his corner of the garden

Well I was drunk on margaritas and feeling fine Your eyes were sparkling as you threw me a line What was this impulsive girl supposed to do? I leaned across the table and I kissed you Your lips were sweeter than a margarita So sweet I didn't even mind the cigarettes Your lips were sweeter than a margarita Well you came to my door carrying flowers in your hands I thought this heart was getting another chance You know this poor heart has been much darker than blue But something brightened when I kissed you Your lips were sweeter than a margarita So sweet I almost didn’t mind your politics Your lips were sweeter than a margarita Eleven days we stoked the fire Then it all came crashing down like a funeral pyre You might say this wounded heart is bound to misunderstand I’ll say I wasted my time on yet another man Oh but those kisses… mmm-mmm-mmm…. So sweet I don't even mind a few regrets Your lips were sweeter than a margarita and tangy too salty sweet and tangy too salty sweet and tangy too

Next Train 03:30
I want more but you want less I try to keep silent but then I confess And now I’ve said too much and it’s a big huge mess I shoulda just written it down How you want less and I want more I know I oughta walk right through that door But now our clothes are strewn on your living room floor We’ve gone and done it again ‘Cause I’m a girl with a foolish heart I keep trying to make a brand new start But every time I turn around we’re just falling apart again I feel like a fool for giving my heart to you ‘Cause I want more and you want less The situation’s making me so stressed out But I let you help me out of my Sunday dress Now what will it be in the morning? I feel like a fool for letting you use me baby I tried to love you baby but you just keep bringing me down I feel like a fool now baby for letting you use me baby I tried to love you baby but you just keep breaking my heart I’m restless and dissatisfied I feel a little sick inside And you’re just stuck in your foolish pride You know I’ve given you the benefit of every doubt I’ve turned myself upside down and inside out But all this time it seems you never knew what love was about No It’s time to be on my way I’ve said all there is to say And I won’t wait another single day because I’m tired of waiting around I’m tired of waiting baby I feel unappreciated And that’s why I’m leaving baby Yeah I’m leaving on the next train I’m leaving on the next train, oh boy You’re gonna miss me

Lately 02:38
Lately it seems I'm a little bit crazy and running around a bit too much late night and dancing too much flirting in the bar rooms but lately I'd have to say I'm finally free and this is where I wanna be Sometimes it's hard to discover that it's high time to finally leave your lover 'cause you want him, and thought you'd always need him and you love him; he's been such a good friend but sometimes you realize that you have to leave 'cause freedom's what you really need I've loved you for so long but always it seemed just a little bit wrong or at least just not quite right Now we're headed for some long and lonely nights And I wish that I could stay And I'm sorry things didn't work out that way but you have to let me go because These days clarity and motion are the new phase dominating my emotions and the Tensas River keeps on flowing and the Mississippi Kites are soaring in the blue sky, inviting me to fly away… You know that I could never stay You know that I could never stay Never never never stay

Guilty 03:08
Well I’m guilty, so guilty I’m guilty as sin, you don’t know where I’ve been but I’m guilty Judge and jury in my head Reached a verdict and they said That I’d be better, better off dead ‘Cause I’m guilty… You probably never think of me But you’re always on my mind I kept a list of the things I shouldn’t have said And all the ways I treated you unkind See I’m guilty My doctor says I need to let it go And then he gives it all a positive spin But he doesn’t know how deep the evil goes And how it festers under my skin There’s blood on my hands, a noose around my neck Well maybe Jesus died for my sins but I have not forgiven myself yet ‘Cause I’m guilty, so guilty I'm guilty as sin, you don’t know where I’ve been I'm guilty as sin, I can’t say where I’ve been but I’m guilty

There’s an old black man on the corner singing for a dollar or a dime You might think he’s crazy You might think he’s lazy You say he oughta get up off the street Well maybe he just wants to be happy maybe he just want to be free to sing And maybe singing on this corner is exactly where he's meant to be There’s a boy who likes to dress in women’s clothing And he likes pretty boys to keep him company You might think it’s unnatural You say he’s going straight to Hell You say he oughta be what God intended Well maybe he just wants to be happy maybe he just wants to be free to love And maybe what God intended is exactly what you see There’s someone who’s tired of the office day-to-day She throws it all away to find tranquility You might think she’s given up You say she oughta suck it up She oughta do what everyone else does (work 9 to 5) Well maybe she just wants to be happy maybe she just wants to be free to dream And maybe this office cubicle wasn’t where she was meant to be I'm on my way... Maybe we just wanna be happy Maybe we just wanna be free to live Maybe we just wanna be.

Original songs are interspersed amongst covers both familiar and obscure. The duo skips nimbly from folk-pop to alt-country to roots-rock, creating a homegrown organic sound with upright bass, acoustic guitar, piano, shaker, tambourine, and mouth-horn. ... more
