The Butcher Boy

In More Street where I did dwell
A butcher boy I loved right well
He courted me my life away
And now with me he will not stay
 
I wish, I wish, I wish in vain
I wish I was a maid again
But a maid again I’ll never be
Till cherries grow on an apple tree
 
I wish my baby it was born
And smiling on its daddy’s knee
And me poor girl to be dead and gone
With the long green grass growing over me
 
He went upstairs and the door he broke
He found her hanging by a rope
He took his knife and he cut her down
And in her pocket these words he found
 
”Oh, make my grave large, wide and deep
Put a marble stone at my head and feet
And in the middle a turtle dove
So the world may know I died for love”

Livin' Off the Land

[Intro]
You have to be comfortable with yourself because that's all there is
There's you and nature
Soon as you think you got it all figured out, you know, the wilderness will figure some way to teach you a lesson
As I'm alone in the forest, I'm one with my surroundings and there's a lot of peace in that solitude
I'll be a mountain main 'til the day I die
 
[Verse 1: Justin Timberlake & (Timberland)]
(Living off the land)
And I break my back
And I work all night
At times I do all their work too
It don't break my stride
I just keep moving forward
At times I wish there was two
So I have somebody else that could help me help you
 
[Pre-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
I'll be down, sometimes it's hard to back up the bills on the credit card
She keeps on running to leave
If you don't get on your knees and repay the money you spend
But like her trust, you cannot get lit
Sunday, you go to church
Back on your knees and you're tryna' soul search
 
[Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
I'm just a man doing the best that I can
Saint or a sinner, the loser can be a winner with a plan
When you're living off the land
 
[Verse 2: Justin Timberlake]
Why you waste what you ain't got
On that power box
Has it not quite dawned on you, that don't work at all
See the easy thing to do
IS the hardest thing to do
You just open yourself up
So the truth could come through
 
[Pre-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
I'll be down, sometimes it's hard to back up the bills on the credit card
She keeps on running to leave
If you don't get on your knees and repay the money you spend
But like her trust, you cannot get lit
Sunday, you go to church
Back on your knees and you're tryna' soul search
 
[Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
I'm just a man doing the best that I can
Saint or a sinner, the loser can be a winner with a plan
When you're living off the land
 
[Post-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
Living off the land
Living off the land
Living off the land
 
[Pre-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
I'll be down, sometimes it's hard to back up the bills on the credit card
She keeps on running to leave
If you don't get on your knees and repay the money you spend
But like her trust, you cannot get lit
Sunday, you go to church
Back on your knees and you're tryna' soul search
 
[Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
I'm just a man doing the best that I can
Saint or a sinner, the loser can be a winner with a plan
When you're living off the land
 
[Post-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
Living off the land
Living off the land
 
[Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
I'm just a man doing the best that I can
Saint or a sinner, the loser can be a winner with a plan
When you're living off the land
 
[Outro: Justin Timberlake]
If you just open yourself (If you just open yourself)
If you just open yourself (If you just open yourself)
If you just open yourself (If you just open yourself)
You'll see, that what you need
When you're living off the land
 

Away

We're in love, let's be together
Happy times or heavy weather
Mother says, today's a special day
So let's not fight, okay, yeah
 
When you were at school, you were a honey
The boys all loved you, you loved their money
The boys would stare, you'd cross your legs
And then you'd toss your hair
 
Away
Yes, you get by
Away
 
Money's scarce, but family honor
Brings it home, brings it home
And down the shop, their tongues they snicker
TV dinners, beer and liquor, oh yeah
 
Skeletons fall out of cupboards
Curtains drawn, fall open to allow
The light shows up the dust
That plays around your face
 
Away
Yes, you get by
Away
 
Away
Yes, you get by
Away
 
Innocence and lies don't make a perfect match
Leave your door unlatched
I know a word could be untrue
And yet still move you
 
And all that time they bring their friends 'round
Dress you up, show you up
And all the time they told you it was true
Well, I'll believe you now
 
But then I just don't know
I think I have to reconsider, yeah
I know when she got married
She looked fine in white and lacy frills
 
Oh yeah, she had a baby
It was painful, it was worth it
And all the time they stuck the knife in
Pulled it up and twist it around
 
Away
Yes, you get by
Away
 
Away
Yes, you get by
Away
 
Away
Oh, yes, you get by
Away
 
Well, that's fine, fine, fine
 

Sleepy Eyed John

Well way down yonder on Candy Creek
I whittled out a fiddle from a wagon seat.
I tune fiddle and I rub my bow.
Play a little tune wherever I go.
 
Sleepy-eyed John, you better get yore britches on
Sleepy-eyed John better tie your shoe.
Sleepy-eyed John, you better goet your britches on.
Try to get to heaven 'for the devil gets to you.
 
Now Sleepy-eyed John he had a wooden leg.
The wooden leg was nothing but a little wooden peg.
With one shoe off and one shoe on
Do the double-shuffle 'till the cows come home.
 
Sleepy-eyed John, you better get yore britches on
Sleepy-eyed John better tie your shoe.
Sleepy-eyed John, you better goet your britches on.
Try to get to heaven 'for the devil gets to you.
 
Over the hickory and down the pine
The racoon left and the old hound whined.
John said 'Sick 'em', and the racoon left.
They crossed Green River in a minute and a half.
 
Sleepy-eyed John, you better get yore britches on
Sleepy-eyed John better tie your shoe.
Sleepy-eyed John, you better goet your britches on.
Try to get to heaven 'for the devil gets to you.
 
I took 20 dollars for to build a fence.
I took my money and I ain't worked since.
I sold my buggy and I sold my plow.
I wouldn't take a dollar for my journey now.
 
Sleepy-eyed John, you better get yore britches on
Sleepy-eyed John better tie your shoe.
Sleepy-eyed John, you better goet your britches on.
Try to get to heaven 'for the devil gets to you.
 

The Impossible

I'll cross the dark side of the moon
I'll do the same with the rings of Saturn
I'll stay awake through the Martian winter
But in the end what does it matter?
 
And I'll look to the sky for any signs to justify
Or offer reasons why
There can't be a you and I
 
I am watching from the outside
Dying to be on the inside
It is cold here, it is freezing
While you're asking the impossible
Because it is impossible to be this alone
To be this alone
 
I cross the dark side of the moon
And cross my heart and hope for this madness
To end very soon before I end in a sea of sadness
And I'm watching from the outside
Dying to be on the inside
And I'm watching from the outside
When I'm lying to be on the inside
And you're asking the impossible
If you want me this alone
Alone, alone, alone
