Track Name: My Outlaw Heroes
Outlaw Hero’s
R. Cain 2007

(A)My hero’s have (G) always been (A) Outlaws
(A)Ever since the (G) time I was a (A) child
(A)They taught me about (G) living when my (D) father up and left (A) me
(A)I found strength and (G) solace in their (A) songs

Johnny told me how to walk that line
Don’t take your guns to town and you’ll be fine
Don’t get off that train of love for the home of the blues
For if you do you’ll cry, cry, cry

Waylon said that this might be the last time
That it’s not suppose to be that way
That a slow moving outlaw has no place left to go
But it really doesn’t matter anymore

Hank warned of that mansion on the hill
How a cheating heart will tell on you
If you’re window shopping while you’re out there Honky Tonkin’
You’ll end up on that Lost Highway

Extra Verse:
Merle tells me that my momma tried
George showed me how to drink a beer
Willie said ita all right to roll a big ol’ fatty
John Denver taught me nothing at all
Track Name: Haunted Memories
Haunted Memories
R. Cain 2007

Their love had once been the foundation
Built upon a trust so pure and deep
But she fell for one night of temptation
Now their love is just a haunted memory

They met one summer by the river
Holding hands and walking through the trees
As started down life’s path together
They swore that there love would always be

On that night she hit the town a drinking
Throwing care and caution to the wind
As the liquor clouded up her thinking
She forgot about that man she had at home

In tears she met him at the door that Sunday morning
He knew that there was nothing left to say
Though he knew her pure young heart was breaking
He turned without a word and walked away
Track Name: Wyoming
(R. Cain, C. Hoffman 2007)

(D) If that city life starts to drag you down
(G) And you’re drawn by the pull of a (C) quiet ol’ town
(D) Wyoming

(D) It’s just my old lady and my old dog
(G) We’ll leave the light on for you (C) when you come along
(D) Wyoming

(A) Between the Rocky Mountains and the Teton Range
(G) If you’re looking for a chance just to get away
(D) Wyoming
(A) Out where the sagebrush meets the sky
(G) It’s a long ways out but it’s worth the drive to
(D) Wyoming

(D) We’ll take a couple days and drop a line in the Snake
(G) We don’t take no account of the (C) time it takes

(D) Stay up late and we’ll talk ‘till dawn
(G) Play some country music (C) on the radio
(D) Wyoming

(D) My little old house is always open to you
(G) So be sure to stop by when (C) you’re passing through
Track Name: It's All Over
All Over but the Crying

(C) It seems like yesterday you said (G) good bye
(C) Off to take some time and clear your (G) mind
(C) I thought that you’d be gone for just a (G) day
(C) Now it’s been about a year or so (D) and I think it’s safe to say…

(G) It’s all over but the crying
It’s all over but the (D) lonely nights
It’s all over but the (A) tears running down my (C) face
And this broken (G) heart

It’s all over but the crying
It’s all over but the memories
It’s all over but the dreams that haunt my sleep
And this broken heart

I used stop for flowers on my way home
And kiss you in the morning before I’d go
I took your love for granted now I see
I’m not the kind of man you thought I’d be

I’m hoping dreaming praying you’ll come home
That I won’t to live here all alone
But I saw with an old friend holding hands
It tore me up inside, but I’m doing the best I can…
Track Name: Bad Habits
Bad Habits
R. Cain 2007

(G) I can’t get the (A) smell of your (C) cheap cigar (A) ettes out of my clothes
And your kisses taste like whiskey, that’s something that everybody knows

(C) Some say that my love for you is (G) blind
(C) But you got your bad habits I got (D) mine

I bite my nails and swear, but baby that don’t seem to bother you at all
I stay out all night drinking but I’m always here at home come the break of dawn

We over look the little things because of what we share in this short life
We tolerate each other and we know that everything will turn out fine
Track Name: Yesterday's Tears
Yesterday’s Tears
(R.Cain 2007)

(E) Yesterdays tears don’t count (G) today
(E) Came to my senses, I can see the (G) way
(E) You’ve wasted my time, driven me (G) insane.
(A) And yesterdays tears,(G,E) won’t work today

Seems everyday, it’s the same old thing
Where’s our love gone, where’s my diamond ring?
Well you made it all clear, you’re getting in my way
And yesterdays tears don’t work today.

(A) Ain’t a man alive who can put up with this fighting, panic, craziness, and (E) lies,
Lord knows I’ve tried
(A) Keeping me up half the night, with this psycho horror show you call your (E) life.
I’m losing my mind!

(E) Yesterdays tears don’t count (G) today
Try to get on track, spread your wings and fly
But there’s not enough money, ain’t got no time
And yesterdays tears don’t count today
Track Name: Whither
R. Cain 2007

He gets up and dawn and
He’d put the coffee on just
Like he’s done everyday for years

Pulls on his old blue jeans and
Lace up his boots again and
Gets ready for the coming day

But this will be the final day
They open up the factory gates
Pride can’t feed his family
But they send his job over the seas

The working class has blown away
Scattered like dust into the breeze
Drifting off to other lands
Driven by our price demands

How could things go so wrong?
Good pay and benefits are gone
He’s just a pawn caught in the game
And really we’re the ones to blame
Track Name: You Can't Break This Broken Heart
You Can’t Break A Broken Heart
J. Clarke/ R.Cain 2007

(D) You can’t break a broken heart, that’s (G) already torn apart
(A) Darlin’ you should have known from the (D) start
(D) You may think you made me blue, (G) but I’ve got news for you
(A) Honey you can’t break a broken (D) heart

(A) I can’t just stand by, (G) and let you take the (D) blame
(E) for something that happened long before, (A) I ever knew your name
(D) You may think you done me wrong, (G) I should a known it all along
(A) Darlin’ you can’t break a broken (D) heart

Girl I know you tried, with your cheatin’ and your lies
All the nights you left here alone
Well there’s something you should know, before I send you out that door
Darlin’ you can’t break this broken heart!
Track Name: I Spit On Your Grave
I Spit on Your Grave Today
R. Cain 2007

(A) You held the burdens of the (C) world
(A) Set deep inside your fragile (C) mind
(A) Never asking for a (C) hand
(A) From your family or (C) friends

Those poisons helped to numb the pain
To shield the loneliness within
Then the night you took your life
I wept for you, my loving (G) wife

I spit on your grave today.

I hope some day be set free
Of the anger I now feel
Will bitterness and lonely rage
Go as the turning of a page

So here I walk now all alone
From the graveyard to our home
Our poor young boy not yet a man
Asks where has his mother (G) been
Track Name: Anything But Country
Anything But Country

(G) Well I met this gal she was build just right
(C) Hair pulled back and her eyes so bright
(D) I picked her up before the show, me my truck and the radio
(G) I ask her kindly what she would like to hear
(C) Then she leaned over whispered in my ear
(D) I couldn’t believe it when I heard her say…
“Anything But Country” (G)

(G)Well that little gal ain’t around no more
(C) I picked her right up and showed her the door.
(D) I couldn’t believe it when I heard her say….
“Anything but Country”

It was hot as hell come mid July
When that handsome by he caught my eye
Hanging out by the old juke box, I got my quarters and I leaned in close
I ask him kindly what he’d like to hear
Then he leaned over whispered in my ear
I couldn’t believe it when I heard him say…
“Anything But Country”

Now I got you and you got me
This country boy, and this bride to be
Dancing late into the night, When I’m with you it feels just right
And when I ask you what you’d like to hear
I lean over and whisper in your ear
There’s one thing you’ll never hear me say…
“Anything but Country”
