CONSEQUENCE (Title track "Consequence") 

There’s ash marks on the front porch step | between the whiskey & cigarettes, I may burn the place down yet | he borrowed my truck and stole my horse, the son of a bitch must want a divorce | when I showed up they’d last seen him with her

So I got back on the highway, headed one road south | sure enough my mare’s tied at the trailer, with his boots outside her house

(Chorus) Annie Oakley always said, “don’t be afraid to love a man, but don’t be afraid to shoot one either” | it feels like a waste of a ten cent bullet, but I’m more of a waste of a damn good woman | with his gun it’ll look like an accident, actions come with consequence

This sleepy town sure gets around, and even if she leaves him now, there’s a dozen more to take her place | I’ve caught him slipping off that ring, inside the pocket of his jeans, lies our not so happy ending | (Chorus)

Should I tell him to go to hell or just go home? | But my finger on the trigger gives me say on where he goes | (Chorus)



 

 

DIRTY HABITS (Track 3 "Consequence") 

You drive too fast on gravel roads, to see rock fly out your back window | going nowhere with no time constraint, you’ll blow the speakers before you tap those brakes

You’ve got a dirty mouth & a filthy mind, but God knows your heart is gold | you’ll leave me here looking out, for that gypsy heart of yours

You smoke, you drink, you love, you leave | move faster than the sun, if you go, I’ll go | If you promise me, someday our time will come

(Pre-chorus) (Chorus)

Love’s the last thing on your mind, but I hope to change that with time | you’re hard to learn, hard to lose, got a lot of dirty habits | I think mine could be you

(Chorus)

 

 

 

WISH IT WAS YOU (Track 4 "Consequence")

You weren't the kind to quit or walk away, now all they can say is, "what a damn shame" | but I know there's more to you than what you left here,  its still so clear

(Chorus) Like your boot steps on the hardwood, ole Boot Strap's still around | little echoes in the silence, I know you’re up there looking down, and I hear your name when the crowds cry out | the boys open the chute, and I wish it was you, I wish it was you

Its a long way to Vegas from Nicola Valley, you know you made your mama and daddy so proud | but there are demons tougher than any bull, you know you put on quite the show | in & outside of that arena

(Chorus) Here we are gathered in your name those you loved, the lives you've changed that gold buckle on your best friend's jeans your diamond promise to your pretty little thing pieces of you, but pieces just the same

(Chorus)

 

 

 

AMONG THE WILLOWS (Track 5 "Consequence")

Martin left Missouri for the rush in Cheyenne, Andy knew the fortune of a whiskey drinking man | They bought themselves a dancehall with some money that they stole, but tempers tend to flare when the liquor starts to flow | Andy pulls a pistol, backed Martin outside, said if I see you again, it won't be alive, but as one gun was lowered, another one was drawn, and Martin got revenge in five shots

(Chorus) Among the willows with blood on his hands, the vigilantes made their plan, he'll pay the price, trade his sentence for a life | 'til he's laid low, among the willows

Six men on the jury & each found him guilty, to be jailed the next morning, he drank til the dawn | he was told there was a friend outside, he was pistol whipped and taken alive

(Chorus)

Twice up a tree just to drag him once more, what would be his last dance on earth | he fell victim to the vigilantes, first to hang in Wyoming | the lawn came but ended their search, with a man who's feet barely touched the dirt

(Chorus)

 

 

 

WISHING WELL (Track 6 "Consequence")

My last name isn't famous for the cows or corn it raises, I grew up with neighbors on each side | but I've got pride for my country, a cowboy who loves me, I took time to learn his way of life | maybe I was born the wrong place, the wrong time, I don't fit the mold but I don't feel its right

(Chorus) To be underestimated, overlooked, and calculated as a risk they won't take, they'll say you're doing fine kid, never stop trying, but from what I can tell | I've been tossing pennies in an empty wishing well

The machine likes to take in high dollar fabrication, pretty words with shallow truths | What happened to the grit?  Hard times ain't hard when, your daddy can buy your way out of them | They say the cowboy's a dying breed, but miss all the ones trying not to be 

(Chorus)

Maybe I was born the wrong place, the wrong time | I'll be damned if I don't even try

(Chorus)

 

 

 

TEXAS & TENNESSEE (Track 7 "Consequence")

They've both got dreams too big for this town, just starting out, trying to make a name for themselves | being pulled different ways, swore that things would never change, but they're changing now | They've been running side by side, parallel like headlights, but they hit a crossroads tonight

(Chorus) At the red light in that one-stop town, they could never look back or turn around | his blue eyes see a memory he swore he'd never leave, now he's headed southbound- she's headed eastbound, to Texas & Tennessee

Over his shoulder in the back he's got a suitcase she swore to help unpack, but those city lights called her name | the only dream she couldn't shake, and he wouldn't dare take that | in one last attempt she said, "come with me", but that big sky was calling and he was going

(Chorus)

He said, "Baby, there's no Texas without Tennessee, and home is wherever you will be."

 

 

 

 

HOUSEWIFE (Track 8 "Consequence")

It ain't my job to make you feel more than what we both know you are, it ain't my fault that you feel comfortable where you shouldn't have been to start | I won't choose words carefully to not step on toes that trespassed my boundaries, you were out of line, now its my turn to speak my mind

(Chorus) ain't even dust on the paper with your new last name, poor boy must not listen cause they say, no matter what you try | you can't make a whore into a housewife

It ain't my business to judge your intention, but I'll call a spade a spade | you know I'd never say two words if you hadn't went & shown your face | I'm a firm believer that trash belongs out by the driveway

(Chorus)

Now, skank is a stain that you can't wipe off, just cause you're what everybody's had doesn't mean you're what anybody wants | I'm all about supporting other women, I just believe that the homewreckers should stay home

 

 

 

HOME (Track 10 "Consequence")

I got a tongue like a rattlesnake, but at least he'd warn ya | words sharp as barbed wire, leave venom in your veins, I've seen you run and I can't blame ya, you were drawn to the rose, but pushed by the thorns

(Chorus) I don't know what souls are made of, but I swore I thought I recognized, the hard-worn trail living in your eyes | like a call across the prairie, your love's a lantern in the front window, always feels like home, home, home

We shine, its like a constellation, it could be coincidence, but its better if we don't make sense of it | seasons change like a soundtrack, we shed the skin the the past, cause you and I are built like that, we're built like that

(Chorus)

Like an old photograph, you capture me and take me back, hanging pretty in the frame, better days ain't far away

(Chorus)
