Track Name: Almost Heaven
Jeremiah Tall - Almost Heaven

Almost heaven is my home
Almost heaven is my home
Almost heaven is my home
My home away from home

Almost heaven is my home
Almost heaven is my home
Almost heaven is my home
My home away from home
Home, my home away from home
Track Name: A Heart At War
Jeremiah Tall - A Heart At War

Oh it's a long hard day
The work piles up but that money just don't pay
And I dug my way right to the Devil's front gate

Oh look upon my face
Ain't there something here that you can appreciate
With that little bit of money I paid my way to hells gate
Even with that bit of change, I couldn't change my ways

Oh there's a heart at war
The devil dances dirty right at my front door
He whispers something clever like come home my boy I'm sure
There's room for one more

Oh and now the shit piles up
And it rolls downhill until they felt you had enough
I got no time to worry or to find peace of mind
And I ain't got no patience
I'm all out of time

Oh there's a heart at war
The devil dances dirty right at my front door
He whispers something clever like come home my boy I'm sure
There's room for one more

Oh there's a heart at war
The devil dances dirty right at my front door
He whispers something clever like come home my boy I'm sure
Oh there's a heart at war
The devil dances dirty right at my front door
He whispers something clever like come home my boy I'm sure
There's room for one more

Oh and now my mouth salivates
Thought of easy money yeah I know it's a dirty game
Well I never feel content when I know there's more to gain
And I ain't got no shame I know it's a dirty game

Oh there's a heart at war
The devil dances dirty right at my front door
He whispers something clever like come home my boy I'm sure
Oh there's a heart at war
The devil dances dirty right at my front door
He whispers something clever like come home my boy
Come home my boy
Come home my boy
Come home my boy
Track Name: Hard Working Man
Jeremiah Tall - Hard Working Man

My father is a hardworking man
He spent his year shaping wood by hand
And he bought himself a piece of PA land
Where he built himself a cabin still it stands

My father always was a mountain man
He said the beach was filled with too many heads and sand
My father spent some nights among the trees
Dreaming of his family he must feed

For his wife and kids
he had to trade that cabin in
For his wife and kids
he had to trade that cabin in

My father is a hardworking man
He spent some time working in foreign lands
Building homes and re-finishing old things
He'd brake his back and his bones for his family

My father never was a wealthy man
Made his reputation off of his back and hands
My father always wanted the best for me
For his daughter and his sons he'd surely bleed

For his wife and kids
he had to trade that cabin in
For his wife and kids
he had to trade that cabin in
For his wife and kids
he had to trade that cabin
had to trade that cabin in
Track Name: I Got A Name
Jeremiah Tall - I Got A Name

I've got nothing up my sleeves
I got this dusty old head full of broken dreams
Don't you put my back up against the wall
Cause I've got nothing to lose, unlike you

I've got this dented old can of beans
This overpass to keep me dry and free from the breeze
Don't you judge and give me your evil eye
Cause I've lived this life of hell there’s still more time
And I've lived this life of hell well there’s still more time

They call me Sam
Sam I am
They call me Sam
Samuel

I’ve got this jar of homemade shine
Some broken chicken bones, dreams of shoofly pie
Don't you underestimate a poor man with pride
I’m just like you when I die, I reach for the sky

They call me Sam
Sam I am
They call me Sam
Samuel

I live on the streets under my feet
I walk a poor man’s beat
I know the dogs where I eat
I know them well
I know I got the strength
To pick myself up and make this change
My momma she gave my name
She called me Sam
Sam I am

They call me Sam
Samuel

I've got nothing up my sleeves
I got this dusty old head full of broken dreams
Don't you judge and give me your evil eye
I've lived this life of hell and still more time
I've lived this life of hell well theres still more time

They call me Sam
Sam I am
They call me Sam
Samuel
They call me Sam
Sam I am
Sam I am
Sam I am
Sam I am
Track Name: Where The Dandelions Roam
Jeremiah Tall - Where Dandelions Roam

I’ve seen these rollin hills
I’ve seen where dandelions roam
Seen them lay down their roots and seeds
And helped their children grow
Took my love on over there and I shared with her this view
Said “Honey, this is how I wanna spend my days with you”

She don’t care
I’m aware
It’s the life I choose

Seen these billowing clouds and heavenly blue skies
Seen them fight for acreage in the corners of my eyes
I took my love on over there and I shared with her this view
Said “Honey, this is how I hope my days don’t end with you”

She don’t care
I’m aware
It’s the life I choose

She never asked me how my day has been, son
She only pretends to love me when I’m with my friends
How can I hold on if I ain’t got a grip, son
The best parts of my life when I let go and I slip

I’ve seen these rollin hills, I’ve seen these heavenly blue skies
Follow my heart to the end of the earth, until the end of time
Took my love on over there and I sat her down and smiled
Said “Honey, this is how I wanna spend my days for a while”

She don’t care
I’m aware
It’s the life I choose
Track Name: Moonlight
Jeremiah Tall - Moonlight

In this time the darkest minds go marching in the night
So hop on in lets tell your friends
Go dancing in the moonlight

Gonna dance in the moonlight
Gonna dance in the moonlight

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

The time has come to run and hide and kiss your next to kin
These vultures won't pay no mind until there at the neck of your women and kids

Gonna dance in the moonlight
Gonna dance in the moonlight

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Dance, dance in the moonlight
Dance, dance in the moonlight

Gonna dance in the moonlight
Gonna dance in the moonlight
Track Name: Never Surrender
Jeremiah Tall - Never Surrender

Gravedigger man, have you got a fit for me?
An old pine box with a cross on the lid.
Hey digger man, have you got a plot for me?
A shallow grave underneath the old oak tree.

I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns.
I'll take them all on, one by one.
I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns.
I'll take them all on, until there gone.

Gravedigger man, have you got some words for me?
An old hymn, to set me free.
Hey digger man, please don't rush to cover me.
With each shovel of dirt its makes it harder to breath.

I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns.
I'll take them all on, one by one.
I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns.
I'll take them all on, until there gone.

I ain't asking, I'm telling you...
My time has past me but that's old news
And I ain’t got a place of mine own,
Dust off my close, can't rest these bones.
And I'm never gonna give in, I'll never surrender...
No not to you!

Gravedigger man, am I just like you?
An old soul, in a dead man's shoes.
I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns
I'll take them all on, one by one

I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns.
I'll take them all on, one by one.
I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns.
I'll take them all on, until there gone.
I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns.
I'll take them all on, one by one
I ain't ever gonna lay down my guns.
I'll take them all on, until there gone.
Track Name: Time
Jeremiah Tall - Time

I know spring times’ just around the corner
Cause I’ve seen those tulips pushing up through the snow last week
And it’s times like these that lead me to believe, it’s time

I know summer ain’t too far off now
Cause I can smell them honeysuckles growing on them bushes in the yard
And it’s times like these that lead me to believe

She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine
She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine
And it’s times like these that lead me to believe

I know harvest will sneak up on us fast
And them ears in the rows shine gold on a fading sun
And it’s times like these that lead me to believe

She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine
She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine
It’s times like these that lead me to believe

And I’ve been there before
Locked behind closed doors for years
And now I know it’s time I make her mine

I know winter will bear down on us hard
And them great nor'easters blow straight thorough those Pennsylvania woods
And it’s times like these that lead me to believe, it’s time
It’s time like these that lead me to believe

She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine
She’s mine, mine and I know that she’s mine
It’s times like these that lead me to believe, it’s time
Track Name: Two Timing Tommy
Jeremiah Tall - Two Timing Tommy

Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man,
Made his presence felt with a gun in his hand
I can't stand around while the rich stay rich,
The poor get poorer and a grown man with begging hands

I'm gonna ride on in,
I'm gonna saddle on up
I'm gonna walk right in,
I'll shoot a single shot up
I'll yell get down on the ground if you want to see your loved ones,
Shut up that mouth if you still want to live
I said shut up
Now fill these bags with money,
And make it quick
Now fill these bags with money,
And don't try any dumb tricks
Just give me what I want,
And I'll be on my way
No one will get hurt,
There ain't nothing to say

Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man,
Made his presence felt with a gun in his hand
I can't stand around while the rich stay rich,
The poor get poorer and a grown man with begging hands

Well I came here ready to fight if I must,
Tell the sheriff to keep his distance
And the rest of his department to stay back as well,
I ain't afraid to draw my sights on them,
And send them to hell
Don't take these words for granted,
Don't think this is a bluff
I killed many men before,
And I'll kill you if I must
Done battle with the devil,
Been sent to do God's work
To take from the rich and give to the poor and the sick

Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man,
Made his presence felt with a gun in his hand
I can't stand around while the rich stay rich,
The poor get poorer and a grown man with begging hands

Well he ain't no Robin Hood or Mother Teresa,
Just a man with a mask and a gun,
Doing what he can
There ain't no reason for anyone to die,
For the lack of money or proper medicine
He's a man,
He's a bank robbing man
He ain't all that bad,
He's a bank robbing man

Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man,
Two Timing Tommy wasn't all that bad
Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man

Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man,
Made his presence felt with a gun in his hand
I can't stand around while the rich stay rich,
The poor get poorer and a grown man with begging hands

Well there was a gun fight just as dark fell,
In that moment well there was a strong smell
Of blood and gun powder,
And the loss of many lives
In that moment you can see one man survived,
Though mortally wounded and covered in blood
That man uttered these words that we'll never forget,

Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man
Two Timing Tommy wasn't all that bad,
Two Timing Tommy was a bank robbing man
Two Timing Tommy wasn't all that bad,
All that bad,
All that bad,
All that bad,
All that bad,
All that bad
Track Name: Working For
Jeremiah Tall - Working For

I guess it's safe to say,
The sun will come up today
It rises in the east,
It'll rest its head in the west again
Sorry if I find it hard,
To wake up impressed
I psych myself up,
To work someone else's fields
Until my hands fall off,
My back is worked raw

And I said, "Who am I working for?"
I said, "Who am I working for?"

I guess it's safe to say,
The moon will come out tonight
It'll light my way home,
And guide my way back to bed again
Where I can rest my weary bones,
Lay my head down, and catch my breath,
I'll do this once again

And I said, "Who am I working for?"
I said, "Who am I working for?"

I gave you the best years of my life,
For a small wage
And a drinking problem that's grown old and heavy
But I won't ask,
These questions that you hate
May I have,
A holiday?

I guess it's safe to say,
The clouds will roll in today
And they'll bring with them the rain,
To wash my dirty face
And cleanse my trouble soul,
I'll find salvation again

And I said, "Who am I working for?"
I said, "Who am I working for?"

I said, "Who am I working for?"
I said, "Who am I working for?"
Track Name: Salvation
Jeremiah Tall - Salvation

I came to you last night
With a dirty little secret and a healthy appetite for more
Tie my hands and chain me to the floor

I came through
I got what you need if what you need is me baby
Use your spell and potion on me

I can't breathe
Untie my hands so I can muscle free
I can't breathe
Oh yeah

I came to you last night
With a dirty little secret and a healthy appetite for more
Tie my hands and chain me to the floor

I came through
I got what you need if what you need is me baby
Use your spell and potion on me

I can't breathe
Untie my hands so I can muscle free
I can't breathe
Oh

I came to you last night looking for salvation and all I got were my red hands
Tie me to the scene again

I can't breathe
Untie my hands so I can muscle free
I can't breathe
Oh yeah

I can see the passion in your eyes
And can feel the fire from hell tonight
I can see the devil at your feet
He's smiling up at me

I came through
I got what you need if what you need is me baby
Untie me

I can't breathe
Untie my hands so I can muscle free
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
