A big ol' lazy gator rests his chin upon a turtle There's a lonely Mickey freight train on the track A wren is in the canyon there's a warbler in the myrtle I'm on the road with Jack And the miles turn into miles and miles Texas fades to black Lost in the words I am lost in the music I'm on the road with Jack (Refrain) Ooh, ooh ooh-ooh on the road with Jack Ooh, ooh ooh-ooh on the road with Jack A hawk above the field describes a circle Jack describes the markings on his tail And how a stellar's jay can for protection Imitate that melancholy wail ,,,I'm on the road with Jack Refrain Thirty miles of swamp land once you cross that Mississippi A foggy mist creeps in from everywhere An old man on his front porch...just a foot above the water Waves as he fishes from his rocking chair On that bridge to Baton Rouge....ain't no turning back New strings tuned and bright we are on our way to Louie's We're singing there tonight Ooh, ooh ooh-ooh on the road with Jack Lost in the words...God, I love the music I'm on the road with Mary I'm on the road with Judy I'm on the road with Mickey I'm on the road with Jack

Catherine came into this world a little early She came into this world on a prayer Oh, how could anyone that small have any chance at all There is a reason...must be a reason She was born to make a difference She's got something, something to do...something to do Dr. King came to Memphis on a Thursday The garbage men were marching arm-in-arm Those K boys warned him not to come, but King would never run He had a reason...a real good reason He was there to make a difference He had something...something to do...something to do Oh, oh, oh he had something Oh, oh, oh he had something He was there to make a difference He had something...something to do...something to do Something to give...something to share The courage to see it through To make a stand, to carry on Can sometimes move a mountain Look around this world has got some problems The air we breathe..the homeless on our streets Oh, what if you and you and me, if all of us could see There is a reason....we've got a reason And we could make a difference We've got something...something to do...something to do Oh, oh, oh we've got something Oh, oh, oh we've got something Together we could make a difference We've got something...something to do...something to do

about

This tribute CD is to one of Ronny's friends and accomplished song writer/performer, the late Mickey Newbury. Produced by another one of Mickey's close friends, Jack Williams, who also performs on the CD. Included are 12 great Mickey songs and 2 new ones of Ronny's.

From Jack Williams:
"I've been asked, by a few fans and friends of Mickey's music, about the new CD, "How I Love Them Old Songs - Ronny Cox Sings Mickey Newbury". I'll start by saying that Ronny knew Mickey well, and was among a great number of friends whom Mickey would call up, in the dead of night, just to sing his new songs on the speakerphone.,,The album is a real labor of love.

"There are some fans who were especially drawn to Mickey's rich and unique singing voice. It's important to understand that Ronny Cox makes no pretense at being able to interpret this music with anything like the voice Mickey had. (And who could sing it like Mickey? And why should one bother to try?) Ronny's love for the Songs themselves is abundantly clear from his sensitive interpretations. He's always been more of a storyteller than a singer, but he brings a sensitivity and an understanding to these familiar songs which I - and other listeners - find quite moving."
