The water is wide, I can't cross o'er And neither have I wings to fly Give me a boat that can carry two And both shall row, my love and I Oh love is gentle and love is kind The sweetest flower when first it's new but love grows old and waxes cold and fades away like morning dew There is a ship and she sails the sea She's loaded deep as deep can be But not as deep as the love I'm in I know not how I sink or swim The water is wide, I can't cross o'er And neither have I wings to fly Give me a boat that can carry two And both shall row, my love and I And both shall row, my love and I

Grady 04:00
Grady walked the two miles into town most every day With his funny jerky gait, it seemed he galloped all the way With his baseball cap on backwards, he’d sail into the wind He was always on the outside, we wouldn’t let him in The boys down at the fillin’ station said that he was touched He hid a grin behind his hand, he didn’t talk that much Mama used to say “You kids, leave that poor man alone” But we’d follow him and giggle, sayin’ “Grady, sing your song” Chorus Grady would dance for a penny While he sang “Those Oklahoma Hills Where I Was Born” I carry this picture of old Grady Even thought it’s getting kind of worn The edges are raged and torn Grady roamed the alleys, it made some people mad Was he peeking in their windows, seeing what they had Lots of folk were sayin’ they should put that boy away They thought he was liable to hurt someone someday I remember the day it happened, I was comin’ home from school The banker’s baby daughter had fallen in their pool Grady saw it happen…he climbed the fence and he plunged right in He saved her life but he gave his…he never learned to swim Chorus I wish you could have seen the funeral they had for old Grady He even got his picture in the paper My dad cut it out and gave it to me…said he was a hero Chorus The boys down at the fillin’ station said that he was touched And he was, by God

Some people say there’s nothin’ to it Just hot sandy air blowin’ in There’s a California reason … the only change in season Known as the Santa Ana Winds Most people talk like it was evil They don’t understand what it’s all about Almost too afraid of what it’s blowin’ in To be thankful for what it’s blowin’ out (chorus) Maybe it’s the spirits of the Conquistadores Coming back from long long ago Or the Conestoga sailors that foundered in Death Valley Only Santa Ana knows They’re the mystery of Southern California To some they’re beginnings … to some the end But to me, they’re as real as this old horse I’m riding Known as the Santa Ana Winds (chorus) They never die, they’re in the San Jacinto Mountains Waitin’ with an ever watchful eye If you listen in the evening on the sand down by the ocean You can hear their distant cry (chorus) Maybe it’s the spirits of the Conquistadores Coming back from long, long ago Or the Conestoga sailors that foundered in Death Valley Only Santa Ana knows Only Santa Ana knows I said… only Santa Ana knows

When I walked in to work this morning, the boss was in my face It ain’t my fault if Floyd screws up everything I delegate If truth be known, he wants my job. He’s looking to move upstairs Well, it’s a dog eat dog world out there And it seems like I’m wearing Milkbone Underwear I feel like a mailman sloshin’ through the rain Instead of water pourin’ down, it’s rainin’ Gravy Train I’m just a big ol’ friendly pup and there’s pit bulls everywhere Well, it’s a dog eat dog world out there And it seems like I’m wearin’ Milkbone Underwear Linda Lu said she wanted me home by six.. the boss said overtime I missed the fourth anniversary of our third date and when I rolled in at nine Linda Lu had my steak in Fido’s dish… she was pointin’ at his pillow downstairs Well, it’s a dog eat dog world out there And it seems like I’m wearin’ Milkbone Underwear Chorus Tag… last two lines

about

“Ronny Cox - Songs…. With Repercussions” is, more than anything else, about the absence of Mary. It is also a “studio” album, with tight and precise arrangements and vocal harmonies. I found a wonderful group of players in South Carolina: Danny Harlow, Susan Taylor and Cary Taylor, and have allowed them great latitude and encouragement in our approach to the tunes. My “Southwestern” sensibilities are always present, but there is also a distinct “Southern” feel to many of the tunes and that comes directly from them. I am extremely proud of this album.
