BILLY JOE: My friend PAULA MANDERSON and I were writing together and she told me this line she had for a song for her son BILLY JOE. The line was "It's not that I don't love you BILLY JOE". I loved the line and we were supposed to get together and write a song, but we never did. One day I found it in my notebook and wrote this for her.

FLOWERS: This is one of those lyrics that was written exactly as you hear it.

THE TRUCKER SONG: I always wanted to write an old style 'trucker' song.

WHEN I WAS GOOD FOR YOU: The song I heard on the radio was RICKY VAN SHELTON version of the 1967 hit, "LIFE TURNED HER THAT WAY". It reminded me of someone.

CRAZY TIMES: When I was going through a divorce, I read a book called "CRAZY TIMES", and it really hit the nail on the head.

A PLACE FOR BROKEN HEARTS: Is there?

THE DRIFTER: Lookout CLINT!

OUTLAWS: This song and the preceeding intro, are my tribute to all those 'Spaghetti Westerns' I love.

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART ACHES: This is another tribute. This time to all those old style "NASHVILLE" hurtin' songs like CURLY PUTTMAN wrote.

MR MURPHY: Just feeling sorry for myself.

PICTURES OF MY LIFE: Photographs are like songs. Songs are like photographs.

I NEVER DREAMED: I wrote this to sing to my wife at our wedding. (THE WEDDING SONG)





If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!
Jesse
