This Ain’t My Home
Shannon McNally/Greg Leisz

Wrong side of the road
How did I get here this time
Looked up and it was coming
Tried to grab what little was mine
But my eyes are open
Open all the way
I had my reasons
but the seasons changed
pocket full of pennies
I need a dollar for the train

If they don’t miss you
You’re not home
It’s not your home anyway

Little sister can I tell you
Just how perfect you are?
Little sister can I tell you
I can’t stand to see you starve
I’m never, never going back there
Sooner turn to stone
Won’t turn around here
No I won’t look back
I see what’s coming
Coming round the track

If they don’t miss you
when you’re not home
It’s not your home anyway

Jack B. Nimble
Shannon McNally

Coming through the eye of a storm
Lost like keys in a purse
I know I’ll  find it but I gotta pull everything out first
What do you want
What is it that you want
You’re always looking like
You got something to ask

Jack be nimble
Jack be quick
Think I’m gonna, gonna be sick
Wind swept and drifting follow me down
Why don’t you come see me when I come around.

I saw you watch her
Your eyes were fixed
You were talking to me
But the show was for her
I read your vanity
Like a murder mystery
It was surprisingly thin on plot

Well if you want her
Go on and get her
Yeah, I won’t stop you
If you wish upon another
Don’t say I didn’t warn you
When your ship comes in
and you find yourself lost
In a whirlpool wind

I waited in line
I even said please
I knew you were a myth
Shoulda guessed you’d be a tease
Gotta run for cover
Take to the hills
Can’t get it out of my mind, this drill
This shifting pallet
this swirling turn
this pattern of greased spending
with little to no return

Lovely
Shannon McNally

And so it goes when you travel from town to town
Passing time with a guitar it hurts to lay it down
I’ve been lost and saved and lost again
Those lonely white lines I’ve come to think of them as friends

Things rarely go the way I hope
I spend too much time ducking jabs up against the ropes
But all I really want in the end
Is to be counted among the good guys when I’m laid to rest

And you’re the loveliest I’ve ever seen
A sweet blueberry gonna whip your cream
Yes you’re the loveliest I’ve ever seen
My delta rogue you are lovely

What say you and me get lost for a while
chase down that sunset at the end of that longest mile
Cause I was born to run you were born to my man
We’ll take cover baby come on give me your hand

I just got off that mountain you know where I wanna go
Straight down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico

And when we hit the beach we’ll rent a little house
We’ll lay in bed listen to the waves
We’ll live on water wine and weed
I ain’t gonna let you out of my sight for weeks

And you’re the loveliest I’ve ever seen
A sweet blueberry gonna whip your cream
Yes you’re the loveliest I’ve ever seen
My delta rogue you are lovely

Yes you’re the lovliest that I ever did see
really love your peaches gonna shake your tree
Yes you’re the loveliest that I ever did know
sweet like sugar and pure like snow

Bohemian Wedding Prayer
Shannon McNally

I’m not very fond of songs that weep and moan
I am like the others I’ve wandered in search of my home
And I wanna be close to you baby
Near to you my lover man
Please relieve me all my sorrow
See the joy you’re bringing me

In you I’ve found a source I am careful not to drain dry
I dip my cup lick my lips your water is sweet

And I wanna be tossed with you baby
Side to side and back again
Please relieve me all my tomorrows
See the joy you’re bringing me

Now I’m out on the mountainside left alone with it all
In this game they call fear the object is to listen not to hear
And if I could go back in time
I wouldn’t erase a single line from your face
Cause the battles that you’ve lost are as beautiful to me
As your victories
