Track Name: Jackson County Line
Jackson County Line
KC Craine

[verse]
I’m packing my bags
You know I’m going to go
Down by the river with all the people I used to know
Where I can breathe free, there among the singing pines
I’ll feel fine when I cross the Jackson County Line

[verse]
If you’re looking for me
Well you better look fast
‘Cause in the blink of an eye, I’ll be a thing of the past
I got my motor running and I’m looking for that highway sign
I’ll feel fine when I cross the Jackson County Line

[chorus]
Well you better move over
You’re going too slow
Just point me to the highway and let my wheels roll
Give me open spaces with that lover of mine
And give me a taste of that old moonshine
I’ll feel fine when I cross the Jackson County Line

[verse]
Well one of these days
I don’t know when
We’ll be together, we’ll be heaven sent
But until that day, I’m gonna bide my time
I’ll feel fine when I cross the Jackson County Line

[chorus]
Well you better move over
You’re going too slow
Just point me to the highway and let my wheels roll
Give me open spaces with that lover of mine
And give me a taste of that old moonshine
I’ll feel fine when I cross the Jackson County Line
Track Name: Blame It On The Rain
Blame It On The Rain
KC Craine

These Portland winters can get weary
One hundred days the sun don’t shine
And if you like it wet, well it’s a safe bet
That the rain will come down in no time

And I’m driving out the sunset highway
But something don’t feel right
Ain’t no sun about, and you know there ain’t no doubt
You and me got to get back in the light

So let’s point ourselves headed south bound
And pull out in the passing lane
And one of these nights, you and I will take a chance and get it right
And we’ll blame it on the rain

I’m headed home down east Burnside
But baby, I need to be gone
Leave the clouds behind, and find some piece of mind
Put the pedal down and drive until dawn

You know I love this city of roses
The town where I was born
But sure enough, everybody does grow up
To learn every rose has its thorns
Track Name: Kite String
Kite String
KC Craine

[Verse]
You can fly, you can soar
Touch the sky and even more
Dance in the wind, till you come back again
You’ll fly so far away

[Verse]
You can drift, you can sail
Spin around and chase your tail
You can scream and you can sing
Searching for what the heavens bring

[Pre Chorus]
But if you find you’re much too high
And you’ve lost sight of solid ground
And when you need to grab hold
Of something to pull you back down

[Chorus]
I’ll be your kite string
I’ll be your anchor to the ground
I’ll be the one thing
You can count on when you’re down
(’ll be) your one connection home
When you feel all alone
No matter what the strongest wind will bring
I’ll be your kite string

[Verse]
You can crash, you can burn
Lose your way at every turn
You can get lost without a guide
To what matters most deep inside

[Pre Chorus]
And if you find you’re much too high
And you’ve lost sight of solid ground
And when you need to grab hold
Of something to pull you back down

[Chorus]
I’ll be your kite string
I’ll be your anchor to the ground
I’ll be the one thing
You can count on when you’re down
(’ll be) your one connection home
When you feel all alone
No matter what the strongest wind will bring
I’ll be your kite string

[Bridge]
The clouds come, the wind blows
And there’s always going to be rain
Just let the stars above
Guide you home again

[Chorus]
I’ll be your kite string
I’ll be your anchor to the ground
I’ll be the one thing
You can count on when you’re down
(’ll be) your one connection home
When you feel all alone
No matter what the strongest wind will bring
I’ll be your kite string
Track Name: I Won't Be Singing The Blues
I Won’t Be Singing the Blues
KC Craine

[verse]
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna turn my life around
Pick up the pieces of the puzzle, and get rid of all the ones that hold me down
Picture a new life, the kind of life that will do me good
Change my behavior, and start doing all the things that I know I should

[chorus]
I’m turning over a new leaf
Write a new story I know I can use
And I’ll sing a new song, but I won’t be singing the blues

[verse]
It’s time I got lucky, all my bad days are past
This time I found true love, you know the kind of love that I know will last
And I really mean it, I’m not gonna screw it up again with the things I do
I’ll make it happen this time, this time I’m gonna follow through

[chorus]
I’m turning over a new leaf
Write a new story I know I can use
And I’ll sing a new song, but I won’t be singing the blues

[verse]
My hard times are over, I feel like I can breathe again
And I’m breathin’ easy, I’m floatin’ like a summer wind

[chorus]
I’m turning over a new leaf
Write a new story I know I can use
And I’ll sing a new song, but I won’t be singing the blues
Track Name: Watch The Water Roll By
Watch The Water Roll By
KC Craine

I’m going down to the river, and watch the water roll by
I’m going down to the river, and watch the water roll by
Wash away the dirty patches left upon my soul
And get me new direction, I’m giving up control
I’m going down to the river, and watch the water roll by

I’m going up to the mountain, to get me a breath of fresh air
I’m going up to the mountain, to get me a breath of fresh air
Blow away the fears that have kept me on the ground
And I’ll soar with eagles with the new lightness I’ve found
I’m going up to the mountain, to get me a breath of fresh air

I’m going into the desert, where the hot sun shines
I’m going into the desert, where the hot sun shines
Burn away the doubts that have kept me in one place
You know I’m getting thirsty and now I need a taste
I’m going into the desert, where the hot sun shines

I’m going back to the city, where my lover waits for me
I’m going back to the city, where my lover waits for me
Tell her all the secrets that are buried deep inside
Then get behind the wheel and take her for a ride
I’m going back to the city, where my lover waits for me
Track Name: Remember Me
Remember Me
KC Craine

Please remember me
Please remember me
When you hear the notes of someone playing a guitar
Remember me

Please remember me
Please remember me
When you're standing by a river flowing down where the ocean meets the sea

Please remember just the good times and forget about the bad
Remember me

I will remember you
I will remember you
I won't forget your laughter or your smile
No, I'll remember you

I will remember just the good times and forget about the bad
I'll remember you

And when the world is large and lonely and you don't know what to do
Just pull up some good memories and include me in a few
Let all your recollections give you hope and set you free
And once in a while, remember me

I will remember us
I will remember us
The time we spent together why can't it last forever?
I remember us

When our time is nearly over and their ain't much left to say
Recall our time together, let it take you away
Embrace every remembrance, let the vision set you free
And once in a while, remember me

Please remember me
Please remember me
When you hear the notes of someone playing a guitar on a summer breeze

Please remember just the good times and forget about the bad
Remember me
