This track never made it onto an album, but it's sure an interesting story. One of their most performed original songs in their touring hey-day, "If Lucy Calls" could always get the grumpiest and least optimistic redneck dive bar crowd to tap their feet, and sometimes even flat-out dance right there, in the middle of Joe's Crab Shack.


If Lucy calls, tell her I miss talking
More than I miss Christmas, I miss talking
Tell her that I've lost my way but there's still so much more to say

If lucy calls, tell her that I'm lonely
I try so hard, but nothing changes baby
Tell her I can't take this world, I lost my job and left my girl,

If Lucy calls, tell her she looks pretty
Maybe kind of tired, but real pretty
Tell her there's a part of me that always needs her sympathy

If Lucy calls, tell her we got famous
It's a big fat lie, but tell her we got famous
Tell her that my heart explodes on all these long, winding roads
