Town Clown 02:48
Lately I'm not feeling like I used to I'm hearing different stories every day I used to be someone people believed in But now they just laugh and turn the other way [Chorus:] And just when you, just when you Think you've found a friend in this town Somebody goes and spreads it around And you're the town clown I couldn't stand the thought of you cheating I'd like to think that I could never tell It turns out you were down on Lower Broadway It turns out it was someone I knew well And just when you, just when you Think you know a man so well It turns out he's fooling around And you're the town clown [Chorus] And just when you, just when you Think you know a man so well That no good's fooling around And you're the town clown You're the town clown You're the town clown

Pride 02:52
I don't know who I am And I can't even say I give a damn When didn't I know what to say When didn't I [curse way?] And I know I can't go on acting this way This guitar smells like smoke And lately I'm feeling like a joke I go find another bar I find somewhere to leave my car Seems like these sleepless nights Sometimes don't get you very far But don't let it get you down You know those bad times come around Everybody feels like a stranger in their own town My mama said that I was tough She said I had it in my blood So just stand right up tall And don't worry about nothing at all You know sometimes when you can't run You've just got to crawl

The Goldmine 03:42
Daddy, you're a pilgrim on your own kind of cloud You've got all the possessions to make a family so proud But a house on the hill ain't everybody's dream All the riches and the pleasures ain't everything [Chorus:] No, I don't want the goldmine I don't want what you've got No, I don't want the goldmine I just want to be alright You're the biggest and the brightest and the smartest one around You've really tried your hardest to show your face in this town But you left the ones you love to be with someone new And this paper made of green is really making me blue [Chorus] Mama don't want me to fail Mama don't want me to end up in jail Mama don't want me to turn out like you It turns out sometimes I do

[Chorus:] High in heels, high on pills Now who in the hell is gonna pay them bills Hands are tired, hands are tied Now who in the hell can get satisfied We waited on the job but it took too long Brother got in trouble, now the money's all gone Mama said, hand out some bottles at the mule And people still ask me why I didn't go to school Now you might say, "how could they live that way?" If they learned to love a dollar they'd have it their way But daddy's gone, mama tried Everybody's got their own kind of suicide [Chorus] Early one morning someone came to our door They held a tiny book that said Heaven was in store And if we believed, then there could be a way out It seemed like quite a bit to think about The church-going people know more than I do And we might need Jesus but we also need food There's a lot big people, places I ain't been They all don't know about the shape I'm in [Chorus] Daddy's gone, mama tried Everybody's got their own kind of suicide Do not criticize what you don't know And don't call it hell if you're too afraid to go [Chorus]
6.
You're not my first man I've been here before I know you understand You know it's gonna take more You know it's not my first time But it's better than last time I've been here alone Not a stranger in this bar Now if I didn't come home But I've made it this far And no, it's not my first time But it's better than last time No, it's not my first time But it's better than last time I'm leaving again He's leaving, too Days go by with no end But I know what to do And no, it's not my first time Won't ever be my last time No, it's not my first time Won't ever be my last time
7.
I've been running around and never found no one No one here likes to have my fun I ain't got a job, ain't got no money This whole town just looks at me funny And now it's me and you again Now it's me and you again A whole lot of love and not enough speed We're the kind of people that you might meet In some dirty old bar way across town We stick around until the lights go down And now it's me and you again Now it's me and you again And there's a lot of things that's been on my mind When the comedown starts I'll be doing time My heart will break again And I've let you in and that's just fine I'm not worried about what I can't define And now it's me and you again And there's a lot of things that's been on my mind When the comedown starts I'll be doing time My heart will break again And I've let you in and that's just fine I'm not worried about what I can't define And now it's me and you again I never wanted to have someone Now I don't see how it can't be done I'm moving everywhere just as slow as I can Look now here I am in love again And now it's me and you again Now it's me and you again Now it's me and you again Now it's me and you again

This morning you told me that you loved me This afternoon the kisses had no end But by tonight you're feeling right And you're a jealous man And here we go one time again [Chorus:] One time again you tell me that you're sorry One time again you tell me it's not like you But I know that you've been drinking And tonight you're not my friend And I don't think I can forget one time again Every day I tell you I adore you And every night I'm repeating what I've said But right now you don't believe me You've got stories in your head So let me just tell you one time again [Chorus] Yes I know that you've been drinking You think I've got another man And I don't think I can forget one time again

You can't change your shoes until they've been split You can't sing the blues until you've been in it And you can't count the miles until you've been anywhere All the while never arriving, always getting there You can't change a memory in time You can't stop the world on a dime You've never lost if you consider your life fair All the while never arriving, always getting there [Chorus:] Only getting there, only getting there I'm never arriving, always getting there Only getting there, only getting there I'm never arriving, always getting there No matter the mountain that stands tall You never know until you've climbed 'em all On the other side you finding it lying there All the while never arriving, always getting there [Chorus] I'm never arriving, always getting there
