Track Name: Wild
You think you can bring me down
You think I’m not gonna put up a fight
You think you can push me down
You think I’m not strong inside

Well it’s cause of you that I learnt to fight
It’s cause of you I had to become strong inside
If it wasn’t you
It would have been something else

Because I’m a woman who won’t be broken in
My feet are planted firm in the dirt beneath them
No one is my master or minder
I’m neither animal or child
But you don’t want to anger me
Because I’m wild

And you the duance who can’t tie his shoes
Simple and small minded
Think you have all the answers ‘well I have a few too
We don’t see eye to eye
But just because it’s your view
Doesn’t’ make you right

And I’m a woman who won’t be broken in
My feet are planted firm in the dirt beneath them
No one is my master or minder
I’m neither animal or child
But you don’t want to anger me
Because I’m wild

And one day I’ll find a man
To stand beside me
Not like you , In my way
You have no respect for yourself
Let alone anyone else
But you won’t make a fool out of me
Wait and see

Because I’m a woman who won’t be broken in
My feet are planted firm in the dirt beneath them
No one is my master or minder
I’m neither animal or child
But you don’t want to anger me
Because I’m wild
Track Name: Dale Watson and his lone stars
Last night in Austin Texas, as I walked into the Continental Club
Didn’t know yet I’d have my pick of dancing partners, I’d be shaking it down

I was a lone star drinking the place dry
Looking out for the talent
But every guy had a girl and girl had a guy
Folks that knew this town many more years than I

All the while Dale Watson played
Our feet moving all the right ways
Made for Texas two-step
Tonight we’ll Shake without a care

I spotted a man tall and handsome
He wore a hat large and proud, I asked the cowboy to dance and he obliged
Listen to the music and before long we were
Stepping in time

That cowboy from Missouri had me on the dance floor
but this music was made to share

I took turn with a gentle old man
He knew how to dance he weren’t bending my hand
Said he was too old to polka
His friend held out his hand and took over
My eyes still on that cattle man in the crowd

All the while Dale Watson played
Our feet moving all the right ways
Made for Texas two-step
Tonight we’ll Shake without a care

Young Jason from Colorado took a chance with me
But I palmed him off on an silver lady
She said don’t look at your feet, just relax
He was a road trippin but it weren’t a new Cadillac

That cowboy from Missouri had me on the dance floor
but this music was made to share

One filthy man I regret to say
was grabbing me in places all the wrong way
Told me to loosen up and dance like a pornstar
I pulled him aside and told him that’s not what I was after
He weren’t a Texan man that explained it

All the while Dale Watson played
Our feet moving all the right ways
Made for Texas two-step
Tonight we’ll Shake without a care

I returned to the arms of that cattleman
He held me close
It felt like we were sharing a romance
I was sad when he left without saying goodbye
I wanted to do more than dance with that guy

All the while Dale Watson played
Our feet moving all the right ways
Made for Texas two-step
Tonight we’ll shake without a care
Track Name: Abrasive
He says that I’m abrasive
Rough around the edges
Not tall or built to physically intimidate
But if I don’t make you nervous
You’re not paying any attention

Be careful what you’re saying
I’m no judge but I’ll be your executioner
And I love to be wrong because I learn from my mistakes
I just hope you don‘t become one

You’re acting like a Neanderthal
Throwing your cock around
Don’t make me part of it
Putting me on display
I’m not an object to be toyed with

Serving suggestion
Take me with extra sweetener
And don’t underestimate me
I’ll have no problem
Cutting you out of the picture

I try on labels but they don’t fit
I test the boundaries by walking all over them
I don’t need your approval but I use manners because I’m polite
Please please please please
Fuck off you dirty bastard

He says that I’m abrasive
Rough around the edges
Not tall or built to physically intimidate
But if I don’t make you nervous
You’re not paying any attention
Track Name: Love Poisoned Me
He said put on your dancing shoes
We’ll go out and party tonight
He spun me round and pulled me in tight
We shared a kiss like a dream
The room was spinning I felt dizzy
His love poisoned me

Didn’t think it would last forever
But it ended too soon
He was the kinda man I could really talk too
Friendship turned romance, gone bad
His love poisoned me

So I put on my dancing shoes
Go out and party tonight
Can’t find a man to dance with this just aint right
But no one else will do
It’s just him I want to be holding onto

So I take off my dancing shoes
I leave alone tonight
I walk home feeling empty inside
No one looks me in the eyes
Scared of what they might see
Love poisoned me

Just wanna put on my dancing shoes
Go out and party tonight
Wanna feel alive
His heart beat nexg to mine
But this dream could not survive
Love poisoned me
Track Name: Scrubby Mountain
Drive the dividing range going home
It’s sunset and the mountains are turning purple
A silloutte of trees line the horizon
The tall dry grass a sign of drought across the darling downs

I travel with my brother and sister to the house we were born in
Still home to our folks and the memories of our childhood
We share stories from the years we’ve lost and reminisce about the past
Still bickering like children but nothing changed in our hearts

With so much changed
Many things remain the same

I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Back to where my heart is
I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Too long departed

As we arrive I recall my dreams of this place
Every inch of the landscape imprinted on my brain
This land so familiar like part of my soul
But not ours to own, even though its been so long

With so much changed
Many things remain the same

I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Back to where my heart is
I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Too long departed

The sound of the butcher birds wakes me at dawn
I take a walk to the iron gate and collect the mail
I feel small standing beside the Gore highway
Trucks approaching like a hurricane

I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Back to where my heart is
I’m coming home to scrubby mountain
Too long departed
