Track Name: Pale Green Eyes
Pale Green Eyes
written by Phil Hummer

i like blue dragon flies thin french fries
dark cloudy skies and i love your pale green eyes
i like the clothes you wear what you got under there
the way you don't really care and i love your long blonde hair
pale green eyes long blonde hair
five foot nine when your feets is bare
which they usually are when you drive my car
through the country fair with your pale green eyes and your long blonde hair

you're just about my size you're my cracker jack prize
you really hypnotize when you flash them pale green eyes
you caught me in your snare you caught me unaware
i gotta stop and stare when you brush that long blonde hair

pale green eyes long blonde hair
five foot nine when your feets is bare
which they usually are when you drive my car
through the country fair with your pale green eyes and your long blonde hair
Track Name: For Love
For Love
written by Phil Hummer

thoughts is for thinking
the whiskeys for drinking
wind makes the waves on the sea
every dog has his day
thats what they say
and you were made for me

you fit me like a glove
sewn with seeds of love
god made the world for adam and eve
and you were made for me

grass is for the mowing
rows are for hoeing
windows for looking through
as day turns to night
god got it right
when he made me for you

me and you is a match
like an itch that met its scratch
god made the world and the heavens above
he made me and you for love

me and you is a set
like a montgomery ward dinette
god made the world and the heavens above
he made me and you for love
Track Name: My Train of Love
My Train Of Love

my train of love is coming down for you
can you hear the whistle blowing loud and proud and true
my train of love
my train of love
my train of love

some say you ride for free because it don't cost a dime
but once you get on board you ride forever and all time
it makes no stops
my train of love
takes all you got
my train of love

its a straight and narrow track that has been layed
theres been some blue skies turned to black from smoke thats made
by coal thats burned
on my train of love
hearts must learn
on my train of love

my train of love
my train of love
Track Name: Happy Song
Happy Song
written by Phil Hummer

today is a good day
i found a new way
to express myself to you
had some bad days
sang about my sour ways
sweet dreams are starting to come true
i wrote this happy song for you

eeny meeny miney moe
lets go walking down a sunny road
lets put our best feets forward first
no more waiting for the worst
yabba dabba dabba doo
i have only got good news for you
sorry you had to wait so long
for me to write a happy song

tomorrow i can sing my sad songs
tell everybody whats going on
today i'm on vacation from the blues
chicken is on the barbecue
i got a can of beer a kiss or two
i gots to feeling i can't lose
i write a happy song for you

whoptie dooptie doo horray
there aint nobody that i need to pay
at least not right this minute
life is a game and we can win it
and hallelujah praise the lord
lets play some twister on the ouija board
bending backward makes you strong
enough to write a happy song
i'm sorry that it took so long
for me to write a happy song

Track Name: This Is Your Song
This Is Your Song
written by Phil Hummer

this song is for the good things i have seen
this song is for the girl who haunts my dreams
this song is floating up to space
how i long to touch your face
this songs a prayer we'll meet again some place

i hope that you could find some happiness
i hope my mind will one day take a rest
i hope this pain will dissipate
and love will win the war with hate
the battle rages on
this is your song

this is your song i hope you take it
my love is strong nothing can break it
you got a claim baby i'll stake it
with this song
this is your song i hope you use it
open your heart and don't refuse it
when i'm gone please don't lose it
this is your song

i miss you every minute of the day
i wish that i had never gone away
i wish when i came back to you
you were there to come back to
and i wish that we could start our love anew

take this song where you go
because it belongs to you you know
its breaking my heart holding on to this song
take this song i'm getting weak
i don't have long and i can't speak
i can't explain i can't do nothing with this song

i hope this pain will dissipate
and love will win the war with hate
the battle rages on
this is your song

this is your song i hope you take it
my love is strong nothing can break it
you got a claim baby i'll stake it with this song
this is your song i hope you use it
open your heart and don't refuse it
and when i'm gone please don't lose it
this is your song
Track Name: My Heart Is So Heavy
My Heart Is So Heavy
written by Phil Hummer

my heart is so heavy that i can't stand up
its weighting me down like a stone
you left me as helpless as an unlicked pup
so hopeless forlorn and alone
my nights are spent sleepless my days are spent sad
there is nothing left i can do
but you were the best thing that i ever had
my heart is so heavy for you

falling like a shooting star
calling out to wherever you are
my heart is so heavy
my heart is so blue
my heart is just broken in two

its so hard to breathe with this weight on my chest
it feels like a mountain of stone
you were the one thing that i loved the best
i'm waiting for you to come home

i'm falling like a shooting star
calling out to wherever you are
my heart is so heavy
my heart is so blue
my heart is so heavy for you
Track Name: Dandelion
Dandelion
written by Phil Hummer

all around this lonely town
i've been riding since the moon fell down
i saw the sun come up in a sea of red
from the blue velvet of my v8 bed

and these times is driving me hard
that aint nothing new
these times is driving me hard
i'm doing the best i can do

these song i sing they've all been sung
things need doing but they've all been done
alcohol is a fair weather friend
leaves you sick and lonely in the end

and these times is riding me hard
that aint nothing new
these times is driving me hard
i'm doing the best i can do

and a lady hanging laundry on the line
somehow makes this old tough hide feel like crying
dandelion shining yellow in the yard
i drive by like a ghost in my car

don't change delilah cause changing bothers me
Track Name: What Is To Be
What Is To Be
written by Phil Hummer

i suppose that loving you is the worst thing i could do
because its only hurting you its killing me
but what else could i do all i know is loving you
you're the past the now and the what is to be

well i'm sorry but i'll never let you go
i thought i should call to tell you so
if you is over me
well you are lucky to be free
you're the past the now and the what is to be

every day is like the last
and time slips by so fast
even though each day feels like eternity
you are ghost that haunts my room
you'll be the stone that marks my tomb
you're the past the now and the what is to be

yes i'm sorry but i'll never let you go
i thought i should call to tell you so
if you is over me
well you are lucky to be free
you're the past the now and the what is to be
Track Name: Long Time Hard
Long Time Hard

cold wind is blowing
lord it aint kind
turned up my collar to the troubles on my mind
i had a woman but now she is gone
waiting for a train to take me home where i belong

and its hard
its a long time hard
lord sweet jesus hard
long time hard

i've been looking through the pages of my recent history
wondering how i ended up in this place i seem to be
all alone and washed up like a castaway at sea
i aint got nobody and there aint no one got me

and its hard
its a long time hard
lord sweet jesus hard
long time hard

Wedding Ring
written by Phil Hummer

look out your window baby
guess who's walking up your street
it is i it is true i come back for you
don't life turn out sweet sometimes

i got a ring for your finger

now it is yours forever more
a diamond of your own

will you marry me baby
and wear your gown of white
and don't forget to love me forever and ever
and everything will be alright i know

now we can start a little family
in a little wood house on the hill
oh my oh joy its a baby boy
i think i'm gonna name him phil junior

yes thats the message of the story
when love makes your heart start to sing
do yourself a favor forever
and get the girl a wedding ring
Track Name: Lies Teardrops and Heartaches
Lies Teardrops and Heartaches
written by Phil Hummer

i'm broke and i'm broken
lifes a bust and i'm busted
i got smokes but theres no smoking
my trust can't be trusted
all of these truths i've tried to forget
but they come back to haunt me
every chance that they get

time after time i found out the hard way
between the lines lies teardrops and heartaches

my seams tend to seem less
my signal is distress
more stress than a stress test
been bested by lifes best
was made under duress
my self worth is worthless
can't read readers digest
on the out since the outset

time after time i found out the hard way
between the lines lies teardrops and heartaches

the letter you wrote me was insightful and brief
it said dear you provoke me and i can't stand the grief
signed truly not yours
sincerely long gone
good luck with the chores
adios mr. wrong

time after time i found out the hard way
between the lines lies teardrops and heartaches
Track Name: Over and Done
Over and Done
written by Phil Hummer

when night comes round and i can't sleep
i go walking by the schoolyard
where we used to hang around when we were young
as we grew i fell for you
and i guess you fell for me too
now its all in the past its over and done

over and done
over and out
over and over i think about
all of the love all the fun
its over and done
over the dam over the hill
over the mountain i love you still
you were my girl you were the one
but its over and done

you went to work i went to hell
i guess i didn't do you too well
played in the bars chasing a dream like a man on the run
sad songs will spoil a happy home
i took my guitar and left you alone
and now it hurts so bad its over and done

over and done
over and out
over and over i think about
all the love days in the sun
its over and done
over the dam over the hill
over the mountain i love you still
you were my girl you were the one
but its over and done
