Track Name: A Million To One (Acoustic)
I ain’t the type
to cause a hype
but I know it’s right
that we’re together

I close my eyes
and to my surprise
I can visualize
you and me forever

without a doubt to cross my mind
I know we’ll pass the tests of time
a love like this can’t be undone
a love like this... a million to one

since this thing begun
you have been the one
who has kept me stunned
more than anyone else

your arm’s embrace
is a sacred space
and the only place
I can lose myself

without a doubt to cross my mind
I know we’ll pass the tests of time
a love like this can’t be undone
a love like this... a million to one

a wanna hold you tight and not let go
help you carry all your loads
I’d put myself into harm’s way
just to keep you smiling day by day

I wanna tell you what I feel for you
but it’ll take a million words or two
just hear me out, I’ll make it short
everyday I love you more and more
Track Name: Never Meant To Make You Cry (Acoustic)
never meant to make you cry
the day I told you what I felt inside
you said you always felt the same
but it's too late and I'm to blame

never meant to make you cry
I had to tell you everything eye to eye
tears were running down your face
I should've picked a better place

never meant to make you cry
it tore me up when I heard that dreadful sigh
shouldn't have said that shit to you
that's what too much alcohol can do

never meant to make you cry
sorry I left you hanging high and dry
it was then and there when I had to see
you wouldn't change for anybody - especially not for me

you never meant to make me frown
baby, I did when I heard you lay it down
you said you couldn't leave that guy
let me tell you baby, you wouldn't even try

wouldn't even try

never meant to make you cry
never meant to make you sigh
never meant to say goodbye
never meant to make you cry

you never meant to bring me down
never meant to make me frown
never meant to make me cry
you never meant to let me die

oh yeah, baby let me die
Track Name: Nowhereville (Acoustic)
feels like I'm so far away
no place to go
no place to call home

can't seem to get out of bed
maybe I tried
maybe I lied

my crippled sense of direction
has fled from the fight
who gave him the right?

I'm stuck here in Nowhereville
no chance to break free
no one to save me

I'm stuck here in Nowhereville
I don't want to stay
I don't want to stray

I don't see her face anymore
the picture's been burned
the lesson's been learned

she packed up and left me behind
left me in this ditch
ain't that a bitch

soon I'll be out of here
until my plan's made
departure's been delayed

I'm stuck here in Nowhereville
no chance to break free
no one to save me

I'm stuck here in Nowhereville
I don't want to stay
I don't want to stray

I'm so far away
I'm so far away
I don't want to stay
I don't want to stray

I'm stuck here in Nowhereville
no chance to break free
no one to save me

I'm stuck here in Nowhereville
I don't want to stay
I don't want to stray
Track Name: "Stagger" Lee Shelton
Stagger Lee Shelton was an evil man
born with a Stetson and a gun in his hand
shiny 45 and a deck of cards
short-fused temper and a mad-dog charm

stag was in the ball room dealing stud
in a dirty little joint called the Bucket of Blood
played some rotten hands, losing every dime
to the kid across the table know as Billy Lyons

Billy was a smart ass, shooting off his mouth
mocked the baddest mother in the whole damn south
grabbed that Stetson hat, told a joke or two
cracking up the crowd and the bar keeper, too

laughter died out as Stagger rose from his chair
flashed an evil grin and felt the fear in the air
reached into his pocket, drew his 45
aimed it straight at Billy, right between his eyes

Billy raised his hands and fell down to his knees
begging for his life, crying “please, Stagger, please”
“take your money back, just don’t take my life”
“think about my kids, Stag, think about my wife”

Stagger shot him down, double tap in the head
grabbed that Stetson hat from the hands of the dead
last thing Billy heard before he crawled out of life
was Stagger Lee whisper “I take care of your wife”
