Song Lyrics

PEARLS – (c) Jeff Lane 2016 | BMI

Somebody must have broke you bad
Took all the trust that you ever had
But I know you’ve been saving up for a while
Why don’t you put your best dress on
Forget about him, it’s been too long
Let’s give that pretty necklace a reason to shine
And cast not your pearls to the swine
It’s too bad that love is blind
I’ve been here all this time
But you don’t see me
I’m the right man that came along
And I know you’re right, even when you’re wrong
I’d take those pearls and give you a stone
That shines for all time
I’d court you in my Sunday best
Cross my heart and confess
I’ve been praying that your eyes would rest on mine
Cast not your pearls to the swine
If Jesus turned the water into wine
And gave sight to the blind
Then why won’t He
Make you see me


RINGS – © Jeff Lane 2014 | BMI

Women | they say some crazy ass things
I will and I do | and you can keep this damned old ring
Over time | the words lose their sting
Until I die | love just won’t taste the same

The kids grew up | while I was chasing my dreams
I saw sights with my eyes | that most people don’t see
From time to time | I would hold that ring
And think about | sights I wish I’d seen

There’s only one trip down the line
If I could just go back in time
I’d make up for everything
I guess we all lose rings

MUSICAL BRIDGE

I was broke | so I had to sell a few things
I thought I’d choke | when I handed over Momma’s old ring
I was down | in a real darkness that spring
But I know now | there’s more important things to me

There’s only one trip down the line
And all we’re put here with is time
We move on to better things
I guess we all lose rings

There’s only one trip down the line
And all we’re put here with is time
We carry on ‘til the Angel sings
And we all hold rings

You Won’t Find The Lord ’til You Get Lost (J. Lane, R. Thornton 2014 BMI)

Lord I love him, please don’t take him | Cried my mother, ‘fore I was gone
The Good Lord dropped me back in my cold body | He let me stay here just a little while more
Daddy took me high up on the mountain | So he could show me how to get old
There it is son, Thine Cup of the Fountain | For you to drink from and clean your soul
Welcome to the mountain, now you’re free | It’s time for you to climb your family tree
You’ll not hear His music ’til your feet sink in the moss | And you won’t find The Lord ’til you get lost
I’ll be ready when my heart stops beating | It must be broken for Him to mend
I’ll fly up to Daddy’s place on the mountain | Behold the Earth below and just let her spin
Welcome to the mountain, now you’re free | It’s time for you to climb your family tree
You’ll not hear His music ’til your feet sink in the moss | And you won’t find The Lord ’til you get lost


Motherload (J. Lane 2012 BMI)

Good times, please don’t leave tonight | It’s thundering and really loud outside
If you don’t want to hear my side | Then I’ll drive, I’ll take you home tonight
Wait, I hope it’s not too late | Stay here, I won’t get in your way
Dream on, and give your life a go | Love me, you might hit the mother lode
Sometimes we’re accidentally right | And it’s OK to believe in love on sight
Step out and into my light | Show me that I was always right
Good times please don’t leave tonight | It’s thundering and really loud outside
Step out and into my light | And show me that I was always right


In the Woods (J. Lane 2012 BMI)

I make my livin’ in the woods | Just like my Grandpa did, I always have the goods
And if I die before I wake | Sam might lose a revenuer man, he’ll make a big mistake
Cause’ he can’t bring me down | Not in the woods
Well I ain’t givin’ big man no tax | Buncha’ suits runnin’ ’round DC making deals behind our backs
And where I’m from blood beats gold | Folks take good care of one another and men don’t sell their souls
No they can’t make me sell | Not in the woods
It all changes when they cross the creek | They’s boobies in the bushes all over the place when they go to leave
Just try and take it, I’ll go for broke | I’ll set ‘ol Red loose on ’em, it’ll all go up in smoke
‘Cause they can’t bring me down | Not in the woods
No they can’t smoke me out | Not in the woods
