Uncle Kracker Baby Don’t Cry

Everything has a reason

At least that’s what they all say

And I’ve lost my count of the seasons

I don’t know what’s been makin’ me stay

Many’s the times that you’ve hurt me

That’s just the way that you live

Many a time is forgotten

But I never said that I can forgive

[CHORUS]

So baby don’t cry, cry me a river

And baby don’t try to wash over me yeah

Baby don’t cry my ship is now sailin’

And I’ve wasted all my time in your sea

And I’ve wasted all my time in your sea

Now that your toys have been broken

I guess you want company

There is no point in you callin’

Cuz I’m headed for my own destiny

Now everyone has a problem yeah

Lord knows you’ve always been mine

The nights are always the hardest

But tonight some how I know I’ll be fine

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Uncle Kracker I Hate California

She’s probably in a Bentley

showing off her new fake boobies

tryin’ to break into the movies

with some producer

who seduced her

with some sushi and cologne

She’s probably down on Sunset

doin’ all the things that she ain’t done yet

with some actor she calls Hector

man I wish he meet Phil Spector

and he’d ask to take her home

She’s lovin’ Californ-i-a

she loves the beach

she loves to party everyday

Pina Coladas on the sidewalk in L.A.

ever since she went away

I hate California

Maybe she’s livin’ in a commune

dancin’ with Hippies under the moon

it’s all free love, weed and patchouli

and there’s a guru named Visuli

and he’s doin’ her for sure

Maybe she’s scummin’ some big rap star

drinkin’ pink Cosmos at the Sky Bar

those Hollyweirdos with their tofu, avocado

I bet she think she won the lotto good for her

She’s lovin’ Californ-i-a

she loves the beach

she loves to party everyday

Pina Coladas on the sidewalk in L.A.

ever since she went away

I hate California

I think I seen her on TV

last night on TMZ

with the pretty people on parade

she’s sellin’ Scientology with John, Tommy and Katie

man I guess she’s really got it made

She’s lovin’ Californ-i-a

that string bikini and the sunshine on her face

She’s lovin’ Californ-i-a

she loves the beach

she loves to party everyday

Pina Coladas on the sidewalk in L.A.

ever since she went away

I hate California

Uncle Kracker My Girlfriend

Hey mom and dad, I don’t know where to start.

I hate to break the news, but I got a broken heart.

That sweet southern belle, that I met in Tennessee

Got a hickey on her neck and it ain’t from me.

Seems there’s someone special she’s been meeting at the gym,

but the crazy thing about it, is that someone’s not a him.

[Chorus]

My girlfriend’s got a girlfriend now.

It was cool for a minute, now its bringing me down.

People talkin’ bout it all over this town.

My girlfriend’s got a girlfriend now.

All my friends say, she’s just going through a phase

and I believed her when she said I just need a little space

But then I found pictures on her cellular phone,

of them doing things, when I wasn’t home

It hit me like a brick, I guess I should have seen the signs

This was more than just a friend and a bottle of wine.

[Chorus]

My girlfriend’s got a girlfriend now.

It was cool for a minute, now its bringing me down.

People talkin’ bout it all over this town.

My girlfriend’s got a girlfriend now.

Yeah mom and dad, really nothing left to say

I’ll be sure to keep you posted if she swings it back this way

I guess I’m not as sad as you think I might be

The part that makes me mad is that they didn’t invite me.

[Chorus]

My girlfriend’s got a girlfriend now.

It was cool for a minute, now its bringing me down.

People talkin’ bout it all over this town.

My girlfriend’s got a girlfriend now.

My girlfriend’s got a girlfriend now.

My girlfriend’s got a girlfriend now.

Uncle Kracker Blues Man

Hey What ‘chu tryin’ to do

Why you tryin’ to see through me baby

It’s way too hazy

Hey I’m still feelin’ the same

So don’t go tryin’ to change me baby

You can’t save me

So many people try to bring me down

They wouldn’t last a second in my town

[CHORUS:]

Hey I’ve always been a blues man

Hey I little rhythm and blues man

Don’t try walkin’ inside my shoes

Unless you’re puttin’ up somethin’ to lose

I said Hey I’ve always been a blues man

Hey a little rhythm and blues man

Don’t try walkin’ inside my shoes tonight

You stem so far from the truth

You hide inside all your talkin’ papers

Flashin’ statements

You never put your money down

And watched a big wheel go around and take it

And in remake it

All you do is follow me around

Then you go ahead and ride it down

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Don’t try walkin’ inside my shoes

Unless you’re puttin’ up somethin’ to lose

I said don’t try walkin’ inside my shoes baby baby

I said Hey I’ve always been a blues man

Hey a little rhythm and blues man

Don’t try walkin’ inside my shoes

Unless your puttin’ up somethin’ to lose

I said Hey I’ve always been a blues man

Hey A little rhythm and blues man

Don’t try walkin’ inside my shoes

Unless your unless your unless your

Hey I’ve always been a blues man

Hey A little rhythm and blues man

Don’t try walkin’ inside my shoes tonight

Uncle Kracker In A Little While

Here’s to the good life or so they say

All those parties and games that all those people play

They tell me this is the place to be

All these beautiful people and nothin’ to see

Sometimes I feel like something is gone here

Something is wrong here, I don’t belong here

Sometimes I feel like a stranger in town

And I’ve lost what I found, it’ll all turn around

[CHORUS]

In a little while I’ll be thinkin’ about you

In a little while I’ll still be here without you

You never gave me a reason to doubt you

In a little while I’ll be thinkin’ about you baby…I’ll be thinkin’ about you baby

On the other side of a coin

There’s a face there’s a memory somewhere that I can’t erase

And there’s a place that I find someday

But sometimes I feel like it’s slippin’ away

Sometimes I feel like something is gone here

Something is wrong here, I don’t belong here

Sometimes I feel like a stranger in town

And I’ve lost what I found, it’ll all turn around

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Some things are lost some left behind

Some things are better left for someone else to find

Maybe in time I can finally see

I just wonder, wonder if you think about me

Sometimes I feel like something is gone here

Something is wrong here, I don’t belong here

Sometimes I feel like a stranger in town

And I’ve lost what I found, it’ll all turn around

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Uncle Kracker Thunderhead Hawkins

I know a cabin down there in Tennessee

Where you can’t find the forest on account of the trees

And Old Perry Foster he got something to say

And you can smell the pigs cuz’ they been cookin’ all day

[CHORUS]

I don’t need no critics

I don’t need no suits

I just need somebody who can tell me the truth

You can keep your opinions

You can keep on walkin’

I’m gonna raise my glass yeah to Thunderhead Hawkins

[REPEAT TWICE]

Miss Mary Jane she always looks like a star

But the rock n roll banker likes to sleep in his car

You won’t hear no opry you’ll hear six strings

And you won’t know what to do when you hear Thunderhead sing

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Now Mr. Hawkins got a family tree

He got that their legendary cabin down in Tennessee

You know he’ll hook up that guitar everybody gather round

You stay close to the fire when the sun goes down

Old Brother Merle he’s always waiting in the wings

Only man up in them woods wearin’ all them gold rings

Old Mr. Hawkins he won’t do nobody wrong

But he’ll he’ll tear your heart out with one sad song

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Uncle Kracker When I Close My Eyes

Guess I never thought again I’d hear your voice

When you packed your bags and pulled out of Detroit

Yeah the snow falls alone get hard to bear

Knowin’ you’re down south with sunshine on your hair

Sent a postcard from Graceland when you passed through

Read even though we lost, I still love you

I keep it like a locket on a chain

I tell myself that I’ve moved on but only half the way

And every time I close my eyes

You’re dancin’ ‘neath the full moonlight

Your faded jeans across the hood

My arms wrapped ’round you tight and good

And I’m wiser than I was that day

Now I’d have some words to say

Ones that just might make you stay with me

That’s only when I close my eyes

Latelt I’ve been talkin’ to God again

And a string of things I didn’t do back then

No doubt I’m better off havin’ had you

Yeah you taught me how to love

Taught me how to lose it too

And every time I close my eyes

You’re dancin’ ‘neath the full moonlight

Your faded jeans across the hood

My arms wrapped ’round you tight and good

And I’m wiser than I was that day

Now I’ve have some words to say

Ones that just might make you stay with me

That’s only when I close my eyes

And every time I close my eyes

You’re dancin’ ‘neath the full moonlight

Your faded jeans across the hood

My arms wrapped ’round you tight and good

And I’m wiser than I was that day

Now I’d have some words to say

The ones that just might make you stay with me

That’s only when I close my eyes

When I close my eyes

Uncle Kracker Livin’ The Dream

Funny how things change

yet they always stay the same

and the simple things in life

just get tossed into the flames

and I’ve been down that road before

where you just gotta roll the bones

I don’t have much money in my pocket

but I didn’t leave none at home

Here I go again on my own

Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known

Like a drifter I was born to walk alone

And I’ll keep livin’ the life

Living the dream on my own.

A million roads to go and

A million roads behind me

I’ve heard so many stories told

But the good ones never find me

I ain’t got no crystal ball

thats showing me the way

I dont’t know which way I’m goin

But I’ll get there someday singing

Here I go again on my own

Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known

Like a drifter I was born to walk alone

And I’ll keep livin’ the life

Living the dream on my own.

And after all I’ve been through

There is nothing left to prove

I’m starting to believe

we could all live the dream

One day at a time

Yes I’m starting to believe

we could all live the dream

Here I go again on my own

Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known

Like a drifter I was born to walk alone

and I’ve made up my mind

I ain’t wasting no more time

Here I go again on my own

Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known

Like a drifter I was born to walk alone

And and I’ve made up my mind

I ain’t wasting no more time

Here I go again on my own

Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known

Here I go again on my own

Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known

Like a drifter I was born to walk alone

And I’ll keep livin’ the life

Living the dream on my own.

Uncle Kracker Please Come Home

It must have been about a 100 years

At least a hundred years

I wish you would just come back

Just come back home

The day we met feels like 100 years ago

And I’m still waiting with my hand right by the telephone

Yeah maybe where you are you cannot make that call

Or you can’t find the pen I know it’s not your fault

[CHORUS:]

My friends think I’m insane

‘Cause I’ve turned old and gray

And I’m still waiting and I cannot be alone

Please come home (please come home)

I watch the clock hands tick my hours turn to days

And I can’t fall asleep ’cause I don’t want to miss that ring

I know that this year your car will park outside

But I can’t put my arms around the girl who took my life

[REPEAT CHORUS]

It’s been so long

It’s been about 100 years

And a million dreams since the last time

I’ve seen your pretty face I would do whatever it takes

I would wait another 100 years

And if that didn’t work

Maybe I’ll try and see what forever feels like

But until then and I know you hear me

And whatever your doing wherever you are please come home

That day we met feels like 100 years ago

And I’m still waiting for you

Baby baby won’t you please come home

Please come home

Won’t you please come home

Please come home

Won’t you please come home (Please come home)
