Going to California Get up and get going, ‘ cause this too shall pass, If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that bad times don’t last, So saddle up the horse, and ride another day, Don’t worry where you’re going, ‘cause Trigger knows the way… To California, California, she’s goin’ to California tonight So you just keep on goin’ until the sun goes down, ‘Till your far away, and ‘ve left this one horse town. No one’s gonna stop you, No one was ever close, So you just keep on ridin’ sunshine ‘till you hit the coast… Of California, California, she’s goin’ to California tonight Remember when we were beautiful, and love was the song to sing, No one cared about being scared or gettin’ no diamond ring, Life sure was easy when I was lovin you, But you set me down, turned around and out the coop you flew To California, California, she goes to California every night

Free Range Women Does what she wants, do’s as she pleases, Don’t need your lip, or none of your reasons, For doin’ or not doin’ anything at all, These free range women, dont come back when you call. Can’t tell ‘em to stay, can’t pay ‘em to leave, Trick you with magic, and make you believe, That anything can happen, and this much is true, Well she’s full of love, but it ain’t all for you. These free range women, roam from yard to yard, These free range women, leave a trail of broken hearts. They come home late, sometimes not at all, It’s hot in the summer, but cold in the fall, When they love you and leave you, somehow better off, But the love that they leave you, comes at a cost. These free range women, roam from yard to yard, These free range women, leave a trail of broken hearts. These free range women, roam from yard to yard, These free range women, leave a trail of broken hearts.

Steal Your Heart I'm walking down this lonely road, It's the only one I've ever known, Won't you bring me in? I need ya like I've never done, For far too long, I've been on the run, Won't you lay it on down? I'll steal your heart, once in a while, I'll steal your heart, once in a while, I'll steal your heart, baby, once in a while, 'Cause you steal mine, baby, all the time. I've been kickin' through the tumbleweeds, Just trying to find the peace I need, But I still can't get you off of my mind. Your love is all I'll I've left to lose , There you go makin' me choose, Between livin' and love. I'll steal your heart, once in a while, I'll steal your heart, once in a while, I'll steal your heart, baby, once in a while, 'Cause you steal mine, baby, all the time. 'Cause you steal mine, baby, all the time...mm hmm 'Cause you steal mine, baby, all the time.

Shut Up (and tell me you love me) I'm just tryin', to ease your situation, All you wanna do is end this conversation, I will comply with a little hesitation, If it means that much to you, All I wanted, was your smile, Sometimes it takes, a little while, But I find, it's usually worth the wait, When you hold me, and you say... Just shut up, and tell me you love me, Don't tell me nothin', I don't need to know, Just shut up, and tell me you love me, You better kiss me, before you go. I didn't call you up to start some kind of fight, Just like to hear your voice before I shut the light, In the end they say everything will be alright, If it ain't alright it ain't the end, Lord I try, by and bye, To stop the things, that make my baby cry, But some days, the old world wins, But we get up, and we try again. So just shut up, and tell me you love me, Don't tell me nothin', I don't wanna know, So just shut up, and tell me you love me, You better miss me, after I go. All I wanted, was your smile, Sometimes it takes, a little while, But I find, it's usually worth the wait, When you hold me, and you say... Just shut up, and tell me you love me, Don't tell me nothin', I don't need to know, So just shut up, and tell me you love me, You better kiss me, before you go.

Down to Pick You Up When I first rolled in this morning, She began to pour, I went inside and saw the light, It ain’t raining anymore, She came down hard and she came down fast, I guess you know the tune, Risin’ to mornin’, that just came a little too soon. But I’m down to pick you up, Just throw it in the truck, I’m down to pick you up, my friend. I don’t know the first time I saw you, but I sure recall the last, Runnin’from my arms, runnin’ back to the past, When did we stop doing things, and start looking for something to do? I turned around and all I found, was this old picture of you. I’m down to pick you up, We’re in and out of love, I’m down to pick you up again. I was thinkin’‘ bout what you thought, when I was better off alone, Money comes and money goes, but time just seems to go, But the skies don’t seem as cloudy, when the sun’s shinin’ from her eyes, Just wonderin’ if I said enough, before I said Goodbye. I’m down to pick you up, We’re in and out of love, I’m down to pick you up again. But I’m down to pick you up, Just throw it in the truck, I’m down to pick you up, my friend
