Total plays on over the last 6 months
    First thing we'd climb a tree and maybe then we'd talk
    Or sit silently and listen to our thoughts
    With illusions of someday casting a golden light
    No dress rehearsal, this is our life
    And that's where the hornet stung me
    Ahead By A Century  -  203,998 plays
    Bourbon blues on the street
    Loose and complete under skies so smokey blue green
    I can't forsake a dixie dead-shake
    So we danced the sidewalk clean
    New Orleans Is Sinking  -  182,183 plays
    I left your house this morning
    About a quarter after nine
    Could have been the Willie Nelson
    Could have been the wine
    When I left your house this morning
    Bobcaygeon  -  177,246 plays
    Sundown in the Paris of the prairies
    Wheat kings have all treasures buried
    And all you hear are the rusty breezes
    Pushing around the weathervane Jesus
    In his Zippo lighter he sees the killer's face
    Wheat Kings  -  144,356 plays
    They shot a movie once in my hometown
    Everybody was in it from miles around
    Out at the speedway, some kind of Elvis thing
    Well, I ain't no movie star but I can get behind anything
    Yeah, I can get behind anything
