Track Name: Devil Knows it's True
Baby I love you, yes I do
Baby I love you, the Devil knows it's true
Baby I love you, do anything for you
I love you I love you I do

And I saw the light in her eyes
I saw the light in her eyes
Ain't no more search for true love of mine
Cause I saw the light in her eyes

Maybe I need you, yes I do
Maybe I need you, the Devil needs you too
Maybe I need you, do anything for you
I need you I need you I do

I saw the light in her eyes
I saw the light in her eyes
Ain't no more search for true love of mine
Cause I saw the light in her eyes
Track Name: Last Week
Last week, Last week
I went running down my street
Looking for someone to meet
Who could take me out of that same old routine

And I came across a man with no shoes on his feet
His beard flowing far and his mind flowing free
And he said, "Son, what can I do for you?"
Yea he said, "Son, what can I do for you?"

Well you could help me understand
Why I'm such a lonely man
Why my memories are tangled
And my dreams don't make sense
Why this life seems so short
Yet this life seems so long
Why there doesn't seem to be
Any right or any wrong

And he said, "Son, you are going to die."
Yea he said, "Son, you are going to die."

"So don't think about tomorrow
As just another day of sorrow
And don't worry about the bad things
They won't matter after your passing
If there's one thing I could say
That could help you on your way:
You can't forget about today"
Track Name: Out at Sea
Daylight shines on the horizon
What a day to be out at sea
You and I we had our vessel
Sailing to whatever port we'd reach

Then winds they turned we lost direction
Where had we been, where should we be?
Capsized in our own confusion
Mutiny I did not foresee

Well I prefer those days
When you used to come my way
With arms open wide
Saying come to me my love

Now it seems those days are over
That ships sailing far from the shore
You set on your own course now
I am in the belly of a whale

Well I prefer those days
When you used to come my way
With arms open wide
Saying come to me my love
I want you by my side
Don't ever leave darlin'
I need your warmth at night

Should I chase you should I follow
Think I'll just stay on the beach
Seems that I have lost my compass
You always were true north to me

Now it seems your ship is sailing
Further than I could ever reach
Daylight falls on the horizon
What a day to be out at sea
Track Name: Miles and Miles of Nothing but Miles and Miles
Driving past golden tobacco farms
All I want is to be in your arms
Far away from where the city grew

You know you don't have to do
Just what you're told
Remember to
Never get old

Take me where the sun is king and tall
Where the trees are everything and all
You can see and all that you want to

You know you don't have to do
Just what you're told
Remember to
Never get old

This past year I gave up my
Time without you dear
The next time that I come by
Try to keep me near

Swaying treetops sweep the clouds away
Leaves drift down like pieces of the day
Miles behind me, miles left still to do

You know you could be here to
But still you stay
Beyond my view
Fading away
Track Name: Jubilee
I went down with an open mind
And twenty-six dollars in my hand
Went to find me a streetlight woman
Met a pretty young girl from Alabam

Her name was Jubilee

Now I had never known a woman
Least of all one as pretty as she
Her beauty and the moonlight overthru me
Well she taught me love how to make her scream

Oh my Jubilee

Well I wish that I had told you that the warmth of your body
And the smell of your neck that night
Made me love you

But the look in your eyes told me never again
After we finished that night
It was just money you'd be needing

Oh my Jubilee
Oh my Jubilee

I went down with an open mind
And twenty-six dollars in my hand
Track Name: Modern Man
Well I wrote this letter, oh lord
I wrote this letter, oh lord
I wrote this letter, oh lord
To see how far you had gone

And I sent one out to every town
I sent one out to every town
I sent one out to every town
To see if you could be found

Well I know you said you'd gone away
I know you said I should stay
But I know what you've been worryin' bout

About love and the modern man
How he's such a disappointment
How you don't know where to start
Well I'll tell you right now
That I love you so
And I want you right now for my own

So I took a ride, oh lord
I took a ride, oh lord
I took a ride, oh lord
To see how far you had gone

And I made a stop in every town
I made a stop in every town
I made a stop in every town
To see if you could be found
