Track Name: Bakersfield
Your father was growing old
and wanted you to be near
Your mother was known for being bold
but I was far from fear
and your boyfriend's shotgun
told stories of men left behind
you didn't think it was my baby
but I knew it was mine
and I still miss my sisters
I left back in Tennessee
you don't wanna leave your brother
but you left him for me

Bakersfield oh Bakersfield
I don't wanna talk about it
Bakersfield oh Bakersfield
I think we can live without it
whoah
its not just me
think about the things you'll miss, like your friends and family
it's not just me
we both know the important thing is thinking about the baby

My family had plenty of money
their hearts held no greed
we could be sitting pretty
on a farm fat and green
and my boy's father
was a general in Tennessee
if we stayed we would have everything we'd want or need

Bakersfield oh Bakersfield
I don't wanna talk about it
Bakersfield oh Bakersfield
I think we can live without it
whoah
its not just me
think about the things you'll miss, like your friends and family
it's not just me
we both know the important thing is thinking about the baby

well you can feel that baby
kickin' in your belly
can only come straight from a love right out of me
I might not have that much money
but find a man with more dreams
you could have all the money in the world
and float through it like the sea
it won't compare to anything
like the love you'll get from me

Bakersfield oh Bakersfield
I don't wanna talk about it
Bakersfield oh Bakersfield
I think we can live without it
whoah

the only important thing is the baby! whoah whoa
the only important thing is the baby! whoah whoa
the only important thing! The only important thing is the baby!
the baby!

Bakersfield oh' Bakersfield
Track Name: Speak Now
Speak now or forever hold your peace
Speak now

Mind as well be talking to a worm in an apple
There ain't a soul in this whole goddamn chapel!

Speak now or forever hold your peace
Track Name: Man & Wife
I now pronounce you man & wife.
Track Name: Traveling Song
I guess there's someone in the world for me.
Track Name: We're Having A Baby
We hit the town when she's ready to pop and
I've got a house with doors and locks and
she calls me baby lets me call her wife
late at night she holds me tight and
holds me tight and

We're having a baby!

She's got my love, she's got my mamma's ring
our little baby crawls on the floor and
I can't think of a change I wanna see
when I finally got my family
got my family

We're having a baby!

Don't let a thing change. Don't let a thing change.

We're having a baby!
Track Name: Mary's Song
You always talked about love doing us good
You would always talk me out of feeling like I should
You would always say that love is a house made of wood
but it burns just as fast as a fire could

We would last forever if I thought that we could
We could build a home together but it just end in ruin
You say there's an evil day coming down the line
And it'll rip us apart in the middle of the dark just before we see the sun rise

You want to give it a try but I'd rather take whats mine
I'd rather just start a fire than look you in the eye
You want to sit and pray, think you can hold it at bay
But you can swallow it down, wear it as a crown and just burn it away

You think I've got an evil mind hidden deep inside
but it's just the reflection of the lies you told me to get by
Well isn't it funny how things come together before they die?
Yea isn't it funny how it falls apart just before we see the sun rise?
Track Name: It Ain't Fair
And then at night
He'd smoke and drink and she'd hang out with strange men.

We talked about her boss.
It became clear that he was just a pimp.
No I can't let go of her, she's the only one I love
No I can't let go of her, she's the mother of my son

Well it ain't fair. No no
She's my wife

She left that night, after that fight
and I knew that's the last time I'd see her
but I searched her out, went house to house
and all I found...

Well it ain't fair. No no
She ain't comin' home
Track Name: Now That He's Gone
A white horse came passing through
from the fog, moonlight blue
I could feel death

I shake and tremble I tear at the seam
a cold whisper turns into a scream
Dear Lord, please

I know I must be near
my weary bones are tired
I strike a match for the fire
around the corner, just as I feared

I cut my hands, I rip his shirt wide open
but he don't move an inch
and all these people they just keep on movin'
won't even spare a glance, its' like we're made of glass

I can feel my anger, spilling out the tips of my fingers

Now I know what to do
I'll steal and kill to bury you
Now I know what it means to see the beast in me

I know what to do
A life without you
I'll be someone new
Give me life without you

Now that he's gone, he'll be someone new
