Track Name: Fall Harvest
The orange sun rises and the red sun sets
The young bird flies and the old bird nests
I seen my prize pumpkin lookin' its best
I'm fixing up my barn for the fall harvest

But by John Deere needs an oilin'
And all day I been toilin'
And the subsities aren't comin'
But my thump keg keeps on thumpin'

Watchin' the big blue skies, it's time for fall harvest
Bakin' the apple pies, it's time for fall harvest
Boilin' the acorn sqash, it's time for fall harvest
Givin' the porch a wash, it's time for fall harvest

The corn is getting ready for to gather and shuck
The spit is getting ready for to roast my plumpest duck
The stew's be smellin' like 50 silver bucks
I'm feelin' real good and I don't give a

But my bees been dissapearin'
An' boy my eyes been tearin'
And my silo's lookin' empty
But my neighbors sure got plenty

Watchin' the big blue skies, it's time for fall harvest
Bakin' the apple pies, it's time for fall harvest
Boilin' the acorn sqash, it's time for fall harvest
Givin' the porch a wash, it's time for fall harvest
Track Name: Foggy River Breeze
The whispering willows are watching the waves
Washin' along in their watery way
All the reasons and wonderings why she wouldn't stay
And wander through the days

So I sit here and silently sip on my tea
Stare straight ahead as leaves fall where they please
It's the city she seeks, not the stars and they weep
Unseen amongst the trees

Walk on the sands where we used to hold hands
Cold mist covered mornings with never a plan
Summer turns to fall I feel nothing at all but a foggy river breeze

When did you decide that you needed to find out
More from this life than you could from outside
And the taste of the straw as it peaks through your smile
Waving in the wind

Oh darling my dearest my sugar my sweet
My soft summer apple my white winter tree
I've loved none since you, how could I convince you
to come back home to me

Walk on the sands where we used to hold hands
Cold mist covered mornings with never a plan
Summer turns to fall I feel nothing at all but a foggy river breeze
Track Name: Mountain Thunder
Hey Mountain Thunder
You got the best of me
Hey Mountain Thunder
I'm just tryin' to be free

I bought a jug of moonshine
Got courage in a jar
I came to fight the cougar
And send his soul afar
Away far away from my homestead
Away far away from my crop
I fight that mountain thunder
Atop my lonely rock

I aimed my rusty shotgun
That rain was pouring down
My feet been burning up like I've been walking through hot coals
Ever since I left my town
Away far away from my hound dogs
Away far away from my still
I fight that mountain thunder
It be my one last thrill

I shot at Mountain Thunder
Must've had me too much booze
'Cause when that rifle fired off
I put a bullet through my shoe
Away ran Mountain Thunder
He ran up off that hill
Damn that Mountain Thunder
He left me standing still
Track Name: Sunshine in Tacoma
Sometimes I want to quit my job and move on out of here
Find another run-down town and start my life up there
But then I see you on the street as I leave the Mandolin
And I order another coffee just in case you're comin' in, oh...

Girl, you got me hangin' on this place

It's a rare thing I know
But it fills my heart up so
But girl the days you pass my way are like sunshine in Tacoma

Sometimes the gray and mucks too much and whiskey keeps me warm
But I pull on taut to you as much as the bottle by my arm
Someday I'm gonna make you mine I'll take you to the beach
But this ain't California bring a heavy coat and a nice warm fleece

Girl, you got me hangin' on this place

It's a rare thing I know
But it fills my heart up so
But girl the days you pass my way are like sunshine in Tacoma
