  Lyrics & Chords
Only Lyrics

$1000 Wedding
A song for you
All alone
Big Mouth Blues
Blue Canadian Rockies
Blue eyes

Brand New Heartache
Brass Buttons
Break my mind
Cash on the barrelhead

California Cottonfields

Close up the Honkytonks

Christine's Tune

Cody, Cody

Crazy Arms

Dark end of the street

Dim Light, Stick Smoke

Do right woman

Do you know how it' feels...

Drug Store Truck Drivin' Man

Farther along

Folsom Prison Blues
Green, green grass of home
Hearts on fire

High Fashion Queen
How Much I've Lied
Hickory Wind
Hippie Boy
Hot Burrito #1
Hot Burrito #2

If you gotta go

I am a pilgrim

Image of  me

In my hour of darkness

I shall be released



Kiss the children

Lazy days

Let it be me
Life in prison


Love hurts

Luxury Liner

Man in the fog

Millers's Cave
My uncle
Nothing was delivered

One day week

One hundred years from now

Pick me up

Return of the Grievous Angel

Satisfied me


Sin City

Sin City D-Flat
Song me back home

Six days on the road

Sleepless Night

Still feeling blue

Streets of Baltimore

Strong Boy
Take a message to Mary

That's all it took
The Angels Rejoiced Last Night

The Christian Life

The Train Song

To love somebody

Tonight the bottle let me down

Tried so hard

We'll sweep out the ashes ...


White line fever

Wild Horses

Your Angel Steps Out Of Heaven

You're still on my mind

You win again
Carolina Calypso

The Brooklyn Cowboys

Hello Hans,
"... Walter Egan & Lona Heins are singing on my new CD "Down on Cypress Creek".
The song "Time will hold the memories" is about Gram's father's death and the last time I saw him at the train depot in Waycross..."

"Billy Ray Herrin, out of Waycross, Georgia, is a passionate carrier of the torch of Gram Parsons, a country-rock pioneer
and a fellow Waycross native.  His devotion to Parsons is evident, in words and music, throughout Down On Cypress Creek;
but, nowhere is it more crystal-clear than in "Time Will Hold The Memories".  As long as musicians like Herrin holds them,
Parsons' legacy is in good hands."
