Track Name: Intro
Don’t waste your time
Boy, get ready for some living
If you let it pass by
Then you’ll live your life regretting
You say you’re still a child
Well it ain’t to early to give

I don’t mean to preach I’m just speaking from my past
If you don’t follow your dreams then they’ll kick you in the ass

I said, with one life to live then you better get on your way
I said, with one life to live then you better get on your way
Track Name: I Care
Ohhhhhhhhh

See now I’ve been alone,
I’ve been afraid
I’ve been on my knees
Begging the lord to send a way
I’ve been down, I’ve been depressed
I’ve cried so many nights trying to put my soul to rest
But through the bad times, there always comes good
So just be kind and patient cause you’re gonna get what you should
You do right you’ll get right, you do wrong and you’ll learn
That things will work out eventually so baby just wait your turn
And sing it with me now

Ohhhhhhhhh

See there couldn’t be the good times
If it wasn’t for the bad
Like when fighting between your and your partner
Leads to the best love you’ve ever had
So if you’re broke down, unhappy
And feel like nothings going your way
Then smile and keep your head up
Cause tomorrow’s another day

Ohhhhhhhhh

See now when you’re broke down
And you don’t know what to do
Just take a good look at yourself
And say goddamn it, I’m through

With all my worries, all my insecurities
I’m gonna life my life, oh I’m gonna live it right
Cause you see you gotta try, try and change your mind
You may feel like you’re broken down baby
But with a little effort you’ll shine
In time, said we can do it now
We can all do it you see now I did it I put my soul in it
And now it’s my time

I care, if you need somebody to tell you now, I care
So sing it with me

Ohhhhhhhhh
Track Name: Come on Home
Come On Home
Where You Belong (Mmm…)
Come On Home
Where You Belong
(Mmm…hmm.mmm.mmm)

Verse 1:
Everyday, When you’re not around
I’m thinking about you baby
And I need you to understand, You got yourself a man
To hold you down, Only if you want me to

Chorus:

Verse 2:
Say pretty baby, I know it ain’t that easy
To let go (Rest assure)
But you drive me crazy, And I’m gonna prove to you
That all my intentions, Are nothing but pure

Bridge:
Said I know this road ain’t easy, but I’m sure that you see
(Sure that you see)
That my door is always open (Open), and my shelter’s
(Always Free)
If you let me in believe me, that you won’t regret a thing (No No)
Cause I love you (Love You!), and I need you (Need You!)
So come on home to me

Chorus

Vamp out
Track Name: Warmth of Her Arms
Lord help me,
Forgive me for my sins
I’ve been lost for a while now
And I can’t remember
Where I’ve been
There’s a long road
Ahead of me
And I’m not sure
How it’s gonna end
So please won’t you help me
Cause I feel my soul may soon

Pre:
Be dead, oh, because I’m lonely and confused
I’ve been wandering these old roads for a while
And I ain’t got a clue

Chorus:
Please Lord, won’t you lay me down to sleep
My mind’s so tired, and my eyes hurt from crying
My hearts been growing weak
I know this whiskey, is bringing my much more harm
But I’ve grown so desperate, for the warmth of her arms

She left me lonesome, on a cold winters night
She’s been running all around the town
Cause I don’t treat her right
She found a new love
One that makes her feel safe
And this will be the last time, that I ever see her face

Prechorus:
Oohhh, I said I don’t know where to go
She took my heart in her suitcase
When she walked out that door

Chorus:
Track Name: Country Chant
Hey child, fetch a pail of water
Mama’s getting thirsty now
Say now, won’t you pour it for her
She’s been working hard today

I must go, to town for a while
The faithful child will stay
And, my love, I may be an hour
But I’ll bring flowers on my way
Track Name: Billyanne
Well she slips off her sandals
To feel the earth again
The long green hair
Reminds her of home
Laying down she looks at me
With quiet eyes
Hold my hand once more

She paints me a picture, with blue sky, and off white clouds
Of the world she’s come to know
As birds fly by she shed a tear, wishing she could join them
On their journey away from the snow

Chorus:
Billyanne has never been one for the cold
She just follows the sun
She dances across the blue sky, and runs from the rain
So I pray this sunlight will never go

She came to me on a cool, dim day, hiding from the rain
I asked if she would take my hand
I promise Billyanne, I’ll be your umbrella
I’ll keep you dry and put a smile upon your face

Chorus:
Billyanne has never been one for the cold
She just follows the sun
She dances across the blue sky, and runs from the rain
So I pray this sunlight will never go

Well December came, looked out the windowpane
To see the first snow upon the ground
I look to the bedside, just as I believed
Billyanne was no where to be found

Chorus:
Billyanne has never been one for the cold
She just follows the sun
She dances across the blue sky, and runs from the rain
So I pray this sunlight will come again
So I pray this sunlight will come again
Track Name: The Guy for Her
What can I say to make her understand
That I could be her shelter
Carry her bags when she’s got full hands
Or maybe I should tell her
Some thing clever, something quick
That I’m a master of words at the stop of… shit

What can I show her, so she could see
That I’m the finest bachelor
Crop a picture of her and me
Or maybe that would lack the
Initial connection that’s so necessary
But all she said was eww when she saw I was so hairy

(Chorus)
I can’t see what’s going on here
I try so hard to make it clear
All she does is walk on by
When I know in my heart that I could be the guy, but
I can’t see what’s going on now
I just need to find some way how
I can make her stop on by
And understand that I could be the guy
For her… (Ahhh…)

What can I do, to make her laugh
So she would know that I’m hip
Pierce my tongue, or drive real fast
Or maybe that would still miss
(Shoo-Be-Do-Wop)The point, the moment, the instigation
When instead all I’m feeling is perspiration

(Legato Verse)
Maybe it’s time, I throw it all away
A long, lost delusion (Goodbye)
Of thinking that there might be a day
Well fuck this confusion
(Ahh) I, guess I’ll just walk on by
Since now I know I’ll never be that guy

(Cheesy Jazz)
Well hello Cindy, I didn’t see
You walking there, right next to me (Bap-Ba-Do…)
You know my name, well how about that
I like your shoes, you like my hat (Bap-Ba-Do)
What am I doing, later on?
Why don’t you come over, I’ll play you a song (Bap-Ba-Do)
That sounds great, I’ll see you at ten (Oooo…)
What the fuck just happened?

(Chorus)
I can see what’s going on here (I see what it is)
I tried so hard to make it clear (Tried so hard)
All she did was walk on by
When I knew in my heart that I could be the guy, but
I can see what’s going on now (It’s finally here)
But I don’t understand quite how (Just don’t know)
She came and stopped on by
And understands that I’m the guy
For her… (Ahhh…)
Track Name: Take This Chance
I…
Can’t decide
When it was
That you crossed my eye

Said now, I, was hypnotized
By the way you walked on by
Confidently sly, and now I’m holding on tight
Cause you got me

And if you don’t mind see
I been waiting for the chance
To tell you you’re the first girl
That had me at first glance

Well conversation’s easy yea,
Comfortable, don’t have to front with you Oh no…
Strength, knowledge, wisdom
Inside and out you’re beautiful

Chorus:
And if romance is on your mind Then I’m your man
(Your Man)
And if you’re just looking for a good time C’mon let’s dance (Let’s Dance)
Said lovely lady if you’ll let me Let me prove to you that I can (I Can)
Be the one to sweep you off your feet Take this chance (Oh…….)

Well oh my goodness here she comes again
Every time it feels like a dream
When you’re near me I can’t help but wish
I could treat you like my queen

Just to think about your skin… Touching my skin
To feel your heartbeat rise
Holds me in this fantasy, oh baby can’t you see
When I’m with you I’m exactly where I want to be

(Chorus)

Bridge:
If you give my love a try now (Give me a try)
I know you won’t deny how (Oh no, you won’t deny it)
I’ll take you higher if you take my hand
(Oh…) Baby just believe me
(Oh…) That I ain’t gonna give up this easy
Cause there ain’t a time, when you ain’t on my mind
Won’t you give me a chance

(Chorus)
Track Name: My Angel
Oh, my angel
Don’t sink with them darling
Fly away

Oh, my angel
We’ll go the road together
And find our own way

Leave this path of sorrow
And begin your journey home
Track Name: Hold On
Girl you don’t see
That you’re only
Hurting yourself,
With your pride

Just breathe deep, Believe me
This cloudy road gon’ clear up,
You gonna dry every tear drop

Say to me you’ll try
To bring all your pains outside
Let down your shield don’t hide
Said it’s only a matter of time

Till you face your fears head on
All you gotta do is stay headstrong
Those pains are gonna leave you alone
If you only let them go, said

Chorus:
Oh, you gotta be strong
If you keep on holding on
Your waiting won’t be long

Hold On, Be Strong
Your waiting won’t be long
Noooooo

I know it’s hard love
You’re scarred up
But you can’t let that stand in your way

Let the past be
Believe me
Yesterday’s been gone
Keep your head up and carry on


And then you’ll come to realize
You were just wasting all your time
You were down but now you’ll rise
And you’re ready to live your life

The world is yours and wherever you are
Keep your mind open and you’ll go far
Talent and beauty baby you’ll be a star
And if you struggle just remember to call

Chorus
Oh, you gotta be strong
If you keep on holding on
Your waiting won’t be long

(Hold On, Be Strong, Your waiting won’t be long, Noooooo)

Solo

And on and on and on and… and on and on and on and…
Track Name: Traveling Man
Said I been, walking a long time
And these legs are getting tired
Walking these streets for miles
And these legs are getting tired
But it’s the only road I’ve ever known
Don’t try for me, I’m already gone
So I’ll tip my hat, and say goodbye
I’ll be a traveling man, till the day I die

Mama don’t you worry
Yo son gonna be alright
Papa don’t you worry about me
Yo son gonna be alright
This world has made me, into a man
Taught me a lesson or two, helped me understand
I got my happiness, and my guitar by my side
So I’ll be a traveling man, till the day I die

(Harmonica Solo)

But it’s the only road I’ve ever known
Don’t try for me, I’m already gone
So I’ll tip my hat, and say goodbye
I’ll be a traveling man, till the day I die
Track Name: Last Goodbye
When we began,
The perfect scene
Hand in hand
With the girl of my dreams
(I Couldn’t See)
The transformation
That was coming along
(What Went Wrong?)
All of a sudden goodbye goes the loving
And hello expectation
Of a man that’s excited to give up his life
(Without returning shit)

Chorus:
I can’t stay here with you baby If I’m just wasting all my time
Sailing along this endless ocean With no trace of land in sight
There’s no give & take with you There’s just giving all of mine
If you can’t understand this darlin’ Then this is our last goodbye

You wanna be free, but you can’t survive
Without constantly having a man by your side
(You Just Need) a simple-minded,
Halfway-blinded fool (To Carry You)
Come on baby; be real for a minute
We both know that you’re not really in it
(All We Do Is Fight) Then you stay out all night
And you still want me to chase you?

Chorus

Solo

Whoa oh whoa whoa
Track Name: Where Do We Go
Verse 1:
When you’re low,
And feeling all alone
Just stop,
And think about life
Now I know, that you,
May be going through
Some hard times,
But that’s alright, that’s alright

Prechorus:
When you feel yourself, moving down the wrong path
Just remember, it’s never too late to turn back

Chorus:
Where do we go from here, when we’ve lost our way?
Where do we go from here, when we’ve found our way back?

Oh!

Verse 2:
When you’re walls have crumbled, to the ground
Together we can take a stand, if you take my hand for help
Cause you can’t live your life alone
Who wants to live their life alone?

Prechorus:
When you feel yourself, moving down the wrong path
Just remember, it’s never too late to turn back

Chorus:
Where do we go from here, when we’ve lost our way?
Where do we go from here, when we’ve found our way back?

Outro:
Aah’s/It’s a beautiful life
