like a yellow jacket bee flies a clear line

I was running after that girl of mine

we were gonna fix it once and for all

or call it quits, I made her feel so small

it all began with a simple word

and after that nothing else was heard

when tempers flair

everything that follows is hot air

I was trying way too hard

chased her away, now I regret it

she went for the getaway car

last I saw my girl, never made it

it all began with a simple word, trust

it all began with a simple word, trust

there were little fire fights before the one today

I was water pushing oil away

we would mix it up work it out fine

the way it was with that girl of mine

maybe we were we insecure

or needed a little more time to be sure

was the trouble only in me

never thought to follow up, I’m sorry

I was trying way too hard

chased her away, now I regret it

she went for the getaway car

last I saw my girl, never made it

it all began with a simple word

I was gabbing at the mouth not a word worth saying

it all began with a simple word

not a word was true stupid game I was playing

and after that nothing else was heard

it all began with a simple word, trust

I was trying way too hard

chased her away, now I regret it

she went for the getaway car

last I saw my girl, never made it

 

pain fell like a hammer

hurt so hard, could not breathe and

when she turned around  

the greatest relief of my life

 

trust me now or trust me never

it all began with a simple word

It all began with a simple word

I was trying way too hard

It all began with a simple word

I was gabbing at the mouth not a word worth sayingit all began with a simple word

not a word was true stupid game I was playing

 

when she turned around  

the greatest relief of my life

rolling that stone, uphill

see the traffic coming

the other side old Ohio

we let it go downhill

running after nothing

river don’t rise go with the flow

 

wagons ho, carry that wide load

me and you down long dusty road

after all these years, one thing we know

together we are better than pocket of gold, yeah

 

stick around you’ll find

everything that shine

it’ll all be fine

better than a gold mine

stick around you find

everything that shine

it’ll all be fine

baby your my gold mine

 

wagons ho, carry that wide load

me and you down long dusty road

after all these years, one thing we know

together we are better than pocket of gold, yeah

 

stick around you’ll find

everything that shine

it’ll all be fine

better than a gold mine

stick around you find

everything that shine

it’ll all be fine

baby your my gold mine

my country life, my lovely wife

I avoid much strife, with my farm wife, loving life

 

In these wide open spaces, you say

missing out on the all things we wanna see, huh

join the hurry up life

always checking the time, hurry up line

wait - don’t wanna miss on something big

 

I’m not ignored, I stay indoors

never to be bored, happy wife, loving life for sure

 

In these wide open spaces, you say

missing out on the all things we wanna see, huh

join the hurry up life

always checking the time, hurry up line

wait - don’t wanna miss on something big

 

big country, wide spaces, open hearts, smiling faces

 

Do we what she want, do we what she do

Do we do do what, do we what she do

 

my country life, my lovely wife

I avoid much strife, with my farm wife, loving life

 

In these wide open spaces, you say

missing out on the all things we wanna see, huh

join the hurry up life

always checking the time, hurry up line

wait - don’t wanna miss on something big

 

I’m not ignored, I stay indoors

never to be bored, happy wife, loving life for sure

there’s talk about a cold dark world

people don’t see eye to eye oh why

and if we don’t think all the same

they will stop not even try oh my

we got lights that shine

moons we put in moonshine

the best stories ever been told

and the hearts in our chest

give off nothing but the best 

bright light in all the world

 

we got stars that shine

God who made it Devine

all the colors make things swirl

and the hearts in our chest

give off nothing but the best 

bright light in all the world

When will we share, our own thoughts

like a smile or apple pie

power people divide us with fear

Its time we don’t buy their lies, so right

take a rich mans poor man in worn out shoes

his meaning may be quite small

but his full heart can shine much bigger

he owns the greatest home of all

c James Paul Moravec

If I had no spine to face this trial

I’d be tracking a minute each mile

waving bye bye to all these troubles

It seems each place I stop turn to rubble

 

Im a selfish to the last dollar

drinking kills the pain when I let you down

like a drunken sailor

maybe see you next time in town

 

they call me selfish loser

maybe that be so

beggar can’t be chooser

when the drinking kill your soul

 

first stop in the pain, know that I

been packing too many lies

wave bye bye to all my trouble

build me a brand new life on the rubble

 

I was selfish to the last dollar

doing good destroys the pain when I turn around

helping hand from heaven

gonna build a good thing on solid ground

 

they call me selfish loser

maybe that be so

beggar can’t be chooser

when the drinking kill your soul

 

wave bye bye, your ticket torn

cash it in you will be re born

yes it will be a long fight

In the end it’ll be alright

c James Paul Moravec

the river is so wide

cross at your own peril

found my steam along the way

see the end of the trail

in a dust worn slumber

that west wind dragon try and take my wagon tell ya

top off matchstick lumber

taking rust rails and a whoo whoo whoo

 

Sleeping or wide awake

Shake me, that’ll do

 

the liver is so tired

think we gonna fail

found my steam along the way

making my own trail

in the prairie thunder

that woke the devil try and take my soul tell ya

take a waitlist number

make the way for me and save me sweet Jesus gonna

 

Sleeping or wide awake

Shake me, that’ll do

 

the river is so wide

cross at your own peril

found my steam along the way

see the end of the trail

in a dust worn slumber

that west wind dragon try and take my wagon tell ya

top off matchstick lumber

taking rust rails and a whoo whoo whoo

I my be old but I‘m young at heart

always be kind, where good things start

and what is true without a doubt

dancing around the edges never works out

 

right is up and wrong is down

anger make you sick, earn you a frown

in the same way each time around

I deserve ashes but believe I will get a crown

 

the now crowd claims their moral space

they own compassion shout it in our face

facts be damned, common sense out the door

kick you when you down, back for more

 

right is up and wrong is down

anger make you sick, earn you a frown

ends the same way each time around

I deserve ashes but believe I will get a crown

 

call me fool, let me live a fools life

not hurting you, I give you no strife

but thats not enough, got to make me conform

still got love in my heart, keeps me warm

 

right is still up and wrong is still down

anger make you sick and earns you a frown

in the same way each time around

I deserve ashes but believe I will get a crown

 

ends the same way each time around

ends the same way each time around
