Compadres

1. Farmer's Blues (with Merle Haggard)

Who'll buy my wheat, who'll buy my corn

To feed my babies when they're born

Seeds and dirt, a prayer for rain, that I can use

I work the land, I watch the sky

I talk to God and wonder why

But it's the only life I've known, these farmer's blues

I see the seasons come and go

Sendin' rain, fire and snow

I'm at the mercy, of it all, this life I choose

Sometimes I hang my head and cry

When that evenin' train goes by

Wish it could take me far away, these farmer's blues

The tractor's old, the fence is down

Put on my suit and go to town

Ask for a loan, that I know well, they might refuse

Back at home, still by my side

The one I love, with worried eyes

Waits for me, to love away, these farmer's blues

I see the seasons come and go

Sending rain, fire and snow

I'm at the mercy, of it all, this life I choose

Sometimes I hang my head and cry

As that evenin' train goes by

Wish it could take me far away, these farmer's blues

2. Doin' My Time (with Johnny Cash)

On this old rock pile, with a ball and chain

They call me by a number not a name, Lord Lord

I've gotta do my time, I've gotta do my time

With an achin' heart and a worried mind

When that old judge, looked down and smiled

Said I'll put you up that river for a while Lord Lord

I've gotta do my time, I've gotta do my time

With an achin' heart and a worried mind

You can hear my hammer, you can hear my song

Gonna swing it like John Henry all day long, Lord Lord

I gotta do my time, I gotta my time

With an achin' heart and a worried mind

Well now it won't be long, just a few more days

I'll settle down and quit my rowdy ways, Lord Lord

With that gal of mine, yeah with that gal of mine

She's a waiting for me, while I've done my time

3. Rawhide – Live (with Lester Flatt)

(Instrumental)

4. The Whiskey Ain't Workin' (with Travis Tritt)

There was a time I could drink my cares away

And drown out all of the heartaches that hurt me night and day

When the thought of you came crashing through, I'd have one more

But now the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

I need one good honky-tonk angel to turn my life around

That's reason enough for me to lay this ole bottle down

A woman warm and willin', that's what I'm lookin' for

'Cause the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

They knew my name in every bar in town

And they knew all of the reasons why I was comin' round, round, round

Cause in my mind, peace I'd find, when they'd start to pour

But now the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

I need one good honky-tonk angel to turn my life around

That's reason enough for me to lay this ole bottle down

A woman warm and willin', that's what I'm lookin' for

'Cause the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

Lord the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

That's for sure

5. Will You Visit Me On Sunday (with Loretta Lynn)

Just outside these prison bars, the hanging tree is waiting
At sunrise I'll meet darkness, and death will way hello

Darlin; put your lips to mine and tell me that you love me
And hold me close again before you go

Will you visit me on Sunday, will you bring me pretty flowers
Will your big blue eyes be misty, will you brush away a tear

A grave is filled with silence but if a sleeping man could hear
Darlin', you'd hear my footsteps up there

Promise me that time won't separate me from your memory
And I'll remember you until the days of silver hair

If not for you, I know I'd lose my mind before the morning
So hold me close and tell me, that you care.

Will you visit me on Sunday, will you bring me pretty flowers
Will your big blue eyes be misty, will you brush away a tear

A grave is filled with silence but if a sleeping man could hear
Darlin', you'd hear my footsteps up there.

Will you visit me on Sunday, will you bring me pretty flowers
Will your big blue eyes be misty, will you brush away a tear

A grave is filled with silence but if a sleeping man could hear
Darlin', you'd hear my footsteps up there
Darlin', you'd hear my footsteps up there

6. Crying, Waiting, Hoping (with Steve Earle)

Crying, waiting, hoping, you'll come back

I just can't seem to get you off my mind

Crying, waiting, hoping, you'll come back

You're the one I love and I think about you all the time

Crying, my tears keep falling all night long

Waiting, it feels so useless I know it's wrong

To keep crying, waiting, hoping, you'll come back

Maybe some day soon things will change and you'll be mine

Crying, my tears keep falling all night long

Waiting, it feels so useless I know it's wrong

To keep crying, waiting, hoping, you'll come back

Maybe some day soon things will change and you'll be mine

Crying, waiting, hoping, you'll come back

Maybe some day soon things will change and you'll be mine

Crying, waiting, hoping

7. Mr. John Henry, Steel Driving Man

(Instrumental)

8. Hearts Like Ours (with Connie Smith)

Like a rolling river, we keep on and on

Sometimes just the two of us

Out there on our own

Through the fire, through the storm

We'll be safe here inside each other's arms

Hearts like ours, strong and true

So in love, that's me and you

Tender words, sweet desire

True love songs still belong

To hearts like ours

Out in forever, high above the stars

Love is shining down on us

Right here where we are

For the world to plainly see

Every day, just the way

True love can be

Hearts like ours, strong and true

So in love, that's me and you

Tender words, sweet desire

True love songs still belong

To hearts like ours

True love songs still belong

To hearts like ours

9. The Weight (with The Staple Singers)

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' 'bout half past dead

I just need some place, where I can lay my head

Hey Mister can ya tell me, where a man might find a bed

He just grinned, and shook my hand, and 'no' was all he said

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

Take a load off Fanny, and, (and), (and)

You put the load, (put the load), right on me

I picked up my bags, went a-lookin' for a place to hide

When I saw poor Carmen and the Devil, walkin' side by side

I said 'a-hey Carmen, come on let's go downtown'

She said, 'I gotta go, but my friend can stick around'

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

Take a load off Fanny, and, (and), (and)

You put the load, (put the load), right on me

Go down Moses, there ain't nothin' that a-you can't say

It's just ol' Luke, and Luke is waiting on the judgment day

Well Luke my friend, what about young Anna Lee

He said 'do me a favor son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company'

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

Take a load off Fanny, and, (and), (and)

You put the load, (put the load), right on me

Catch a Cannonball now to take me on down the line

My bag is sinkin' low, and I do believe it's time

Get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one

Who sent me here with her regards for everyone

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free

Take a load off Fanny, and, (and), (and)

You put the load, (put the load), right on me

10. One Woman Man (with George Jones)

If you told me that you loved me, I would feel so proud

Let me hold you honey, I'd holler out loud

I'll never love another, even if I can

Come to me baby, I'm a one woman man

Ah won't ya let me baby just a-kinda hang around

I'll always love ya honey and I'll never let ya down

I'll never love another, even if I can

Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

I'd climb the highest mountain if it reached up to the sky

To prove that I love ya, I'd jump off an' fly

I'd even swim the ocean from shore to shore

To prove that I love ya a little bit more

Ah won't ya let me baby just a-kinda hang around

I'll always love ya honey, I'll never let ya down

Hey I'll never love another, even if I can

Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

If you told me that you loved me I would feel so proud

Let me hold you honey, I'd holler out loud

I'll never love another, even if I can

Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Hey won't ya let me baby just a-kinda hang around

I'll always love ya honey and I'll never let ya down

Hey, I'll never love another, even if I can

Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

Come to me baby I'm a one woman man

11. Confessin' The Blues (with B.B. King)

Here I stand before you baby with my heart in my hand

I want you greet it mama hopin' that you'll understand

I said baby, honey please don't dog me around

I'd rather be with you baby, than anyone else I know in town

Well, because you're so nice and lovely

And have such pleasin' ways

You take to your heart, I'll be there the rest of my days

I said baby, oh that's the truth honey

I declare I wouldn't lie

I'd rather love you baby

If I didn't, I swear I hope to die

I said baby, don't you want a man like me

Can you hear me woman

Baby, don't you want a man like me

You just think about out future, and forget about your used t be

When my days are long and dreary and the sun refuse to shine

I would never be blue and lonely woman if I knew that you were mine

I said baby, you can make everything all right

Can I see you today baby, or will it have to be tomorrow night

Yes, this is my confession baby

I'm thrilled by all your charms

It seems like I'm in heaven when I hold you in my arms

I said baby, woman you can have me for yourself

You know I was meant for you baby

And I don't want nobody else

You told me that you love me woman, you meant it from the start

You said we'd be together 'til death do us part

Yeah, but she lied to me BB, she said she caused it all in fun

Brother tell me how can I be happy, with all the wrong that women's done

12. I Can See For Miles (with Old Crow Medicine Show)

I know you've deceived me, now here's a surprise

I know that you have ' cause there's magic in my eyes

I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles

Oh yeah

If you think that I don't know about the little tricks you've played

And never see you when deliberately you put things in my way

Well, here's a poke at you, you're gonna choke on it too

You're gonna lose that smile, because all the while

I can see for miles and miles

I can see for miles and miles

I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles

Oh yeah

You took advantage of my trust in you when I was so far away

I saw you holding lots of other guys and now you've got the nerve to say

That you still want me, well that's as may be

But you gotta stand trial, because all the while

I can see for miles and miles

I can see for miles and miles

I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles

The Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal are mine to see on clearer days

You thought that I would need a crystal ball to see right through the haze

Well, here's a poke at you, you're gonna choke on it too

You're gonna lose that smile, because all the while

I can see for miles and miles

I can see for miles and miles

I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles

I can see for miles and miles

I can see for miles and miles

I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles

13. Let Us Travel, Travel On (with Del McCoury)

There's a home, high up in heaven, where with saints I'll ever dwell

When the road of life has ended, then I'll bid this world farewell

There's no weary ones in heaven, only gladness will be known

Sinner come accept my Savior, let us travel, travel on

I must give my heart to Jesus, turned away from sin and shame

In that book of life in heaven, God has written down my name

There's no weary ones in heaven, only gladness will be known

Sinner come accept my Savior, let us travel, travel on

When this weary life is over, and when saints are marching home

Will your soul be free from sorrow, or instead be ye unknown

There's no weary ones in heaven, only gladness will be known

Sinner come accept my Savior, let us travel, travel on
