Track Name: Nothin' Worries Me None
I get a pretty good feeling, sitting here thinkin' 'bout you
I hope you get a good feeling thinkin' 'bout me too
Know that I haven't forgotten all the things that you've done
At home my mind was reeling, but here nothin' worries me none

I ain't a' got much money, what I have I spend each day
And I seen a lot of sorrow here in this beautiful place
There's a lot of people talkin', the rumor mill grinds on
But if I stick to my own feelings, nothin' worries me none

It's easy to carry your troubles everywhere you go
At times you think your troubles are all that you know
Take the time to open your eyes and gaze at the bright blue sky
Pray for those on the fringes, by a thread they cling to life

I can take a walk by the water, smell the salt of the sea
The past can be just that, my mind longs to be free
Thoughts of my friends and loved ones, so easily they come
I hope they're feeling fine, I hope nothin' worries them none
Track Name: Here We Go
Here we go it's time to move again
On and on it never ends

I was feelin' comfy in this house of sand
Now I gotta go, who knows where I'll land
The rug's been pulled from beneath my feet
I gotta move fast that's the code of the street

Here we go it's time to move again
On and on it never ends

My dear landlord is down on his luck
Nothin' gets in between him and a buck
Us common folk we gotta get in line
After all you know no billionaire left behind

Here we go it's time to move again
On and on it never ends

And just when you think you got it and you're finally in
It's time to wrap it up, pack it up and move it again

My whole life movin' from place to place
I'll die on my feet with a smile on my face
Where do I turn? Where do I go?
Like Woody Guthrie sang "I aint 'a got no home!"...

Here we go it's time to move again
On and on it never ends...
Track Name: Every Dead End Street
When I see you about, something in me shouts
That I wanna go back, back in time
Back to way back when, you were mine
But I know it's never again for us to meet

Because I already followed you down every dead end street
And it seems like it's been forever

When I think of you, still I think of me
But I know that it's best to move my feet

Because I already followed you down every dead end street
And it seems like it's been forever

And it's such a strange thing
Such a feeling wells up in me
But that's the feeling that you shut down

I don't need you, you don't need me
All by ourselves we are complete

And I already followed you down every dead end street
And it seems like it's been forever
In hindsight the best of things are at best bittersweet
The end of it all, our time spent together
Track Name: Goin' Up The Road
Goin' up the road I'm gonna get away for the weekend
Goin' to a place I ain't never ever been before
I gotta get out of this little ol' town
The endless nights are bringin' me down
Goin' up the road I'm gonna get away for the weekend

Goin' up the road it eases my troubled mind
Gonna find me a place where there ain't nothin' but time
Sit up high and gave out on the water
I'm afraid to jump but maybe I oughta
Goin' up the road it eases my troubled mind

Memories they're sometimes hard to set free
Lord knows my memory has plagued me
When memories they haunt you son
Ya gotta move on and make new ones
Memories they're sometimes hard to set free

Sittin' on a cliff-top overlooking lake Champlaign
Watchin' the birds fly over the watery plain
There ain't nothin' like a bird in flight
I watch 'em til they're outta sight
Sittin' on a cliff-top overlooking lake Champlaign

Pretty little miss just 'a sittin' listenin' while I sing
Lord have mercy she's the sweetest thing
If she don't cry, if she don't cling
Who's to say what the future might bring
Pretty little miss just 'a sittin' listenin' while I sing

So I'm goin' up the road I'm gonna get away for the weekend
Goin' to a place I ain't never ever been before
I gotta get out of this little ol' town
The endless nights are bringin' me down
Goin' up the road I'm gonna get away for the weekend
Track Name: Take Your Place
Memories come crashing in, again, it's 4 a.m.
I should be sleeping
Instead I'm wide awake
And still dreamin' of you

And the wine don't work anymore
It makes me forget but leaves me feeling sore
And I guess there's some things, time cannot erase
I know now that nothin', could ever take your place

Remember old times
Old friends, campfires and bottles of wine
And dreams were real to me
For only a fool thinks it's a dream while he's dreamin'...

And lady time she's marchin' on
I can't keep up, soon I'll be gone
But I'll remember your scent, soft lilies and lace
I know now that nothin', could ever take your place
Track Name: Next To Me
Next to me my darling you know I really felt complete
But now I sit in this coffee shop staring at the empty seat
Next to me, oh next to me
How I wish you were still next to me

Riding on our bicycles through the endless aimless days
You filled my soul with laughter with that smile upon your face
Next to me, oh next to me
How I remember you next to me

So who do you hold at night in your little cottage room?
When the rain beats on the roof and the storms block out the moon
Next to me, oh next to me
We were lying in your bed and you were next to me

Next to me is where you ought to be
But you prefer to walk your path alone
Where will you go now? Where will you call home?
Remember me my love, I was yours and yours alone

The highway was a beacon a tractor beam calling me
I wanted to run from the chaos to a place where we were free
Next to me, oh next to me
I look and your no longer next to me

We walked the hills of Asheville carnival Old Orchard Beach
The stars were all against us and our dreams were out of reach
Next to me, oh next to me
Through hard times you were still next to me

I watched the British Open and how gallantly he fought
But the old man missed the final shot and I knew that we were lost
Next to me, oh next to me
Lady Luck is no longer next to me

Your heart has changed it's locked up now I guess I lost the key
But that's alright it's only life go on and be free
Next to me, oh next to me
I gotta thank ya for the time you spent next to me

There's order to the universe even when it's bad to worse
Some things just ain't meant to be and no one gets off easily
Next to me, oh next to me
In the land of dreams you are still next to me

The best of times they never last it always moves to end
So take good care of your memories you can't live them again
Next to me, oh next to me
Pictures of you when you were next to me
Track Name: Every Moment Is Forever
Ain't nobody gonna find it for ya, it doesn't work that way
Ain't nobody gonna hear it for ya, no matter what you say
Ain't nobody gonna win it for ya, no matter how you play
And there ain't no future for ya, there is only day to day
Stop looking ahead stop looking behind
Look down to where your feet touch the ground
That's where you are and where you will always be
Every moment is forever
We look all around this world, find things to make us complete
We've been taught life's about winning, we been taught how to compete
Meanwhile the here and now gets wasted as we chase some far off goal
Of all the victories that I've tasted ain't none as sweet as just letting go
Stop looking ahead stop looking behind
Look down to where your feet touch the ground
That's where you are and that's where you'll always be
Every moment is forever
Still sometimes these thoughts of regret like to come creepin' in
And I feel some sense of obligation like I gotta entertain them
Shoulda' done this, shoulda' done that
But this kinda' thinkin' ain't where it's at
I am that I am not what I am
And every choice I made was right in its time
Stop looking ahead stop looking behind
Look down to where your feet touch the ground
That's where you are and where you will always be
Every moment is forever....
....and there's no such thing as time...
Track Name: Another Good Friend Gone
Growing colder every day, every hour slipping away
It's been coming for some time another good friend gone down the line
Oh my heart so heavy it lies, I been up all night with the rain in my eyes
Tryin' to write it down, tryin' to find a way
But he meant more to me than I could ever say

Once more we've reached the end and it's a
Farewell again my friend and, so long....to another good friend gone...

Oh this life will lay you low
There's a chill in your bones when the cold wind blows
And what's the point? What's the use?
How on earth will I ever get loose?
But no matter the hurt, no matter the pain
Oh my friend you never complained
So I'm tryin' to get it straight, tryin' to get it right
It's never too late to find the light in the night

Once more i'm in a tailspin and
Lord I'm gonna miss my friend and,
So long....to another good friend gone...

All of us are here on the brink
On our toes on the edge of a slippery sink and it's a
Simple trick, of the mind, we always think that we have enough time
I seen friends in the magic electric dawn
And by nightfall, I seen 'em gone
So I'm tryin' to speak the truth clear somehow
If you got somethin' to say say it here and now and it's a

Farewell my friend my brother
At the end of the day, it's another....
So long...to another good friend gone...
Track Name: Man On Wire
There I a man on fire
There I with one desire
There I bid you take me higher
There I a poor boy from the country side
Become the Man on Wire
Oh the movie seemed to go on like a dream
The acrobat walked a mile above the street
Fearlessly, one step towards eternity
To risk it all just for a chance to dance with thee
And in your eyes, limitless like a diamond night
I see reflections of a better life
And I spy, a world chained to fear and foolish pride
All these inventions only born to die
To live is to fly, space and time
All limitations are but man made lies
And there I, walk so high
As a man on wire....
Oh the towers are gone
Drift empty sky now where in dreams I walk
This world seems lost
In mindless chatter and empty talk
My heart's in love
With the memory of the higher place
And though it's gone
When I go there I can see your face
But never again I, to walk so high...as a man on wire...
Track Name: The Sound of 4 a.m.
I would do things differently if I could
I would be your friend
I would never try to take your hand
I would never try to be your man

I would be unselfish if I could
I would listen to you
I would stop the battle in my head
I would understand the things you said

I would say things differently if I could
Change things between you and I
I would not let us fall apart
I would not let you break my heart

I would never ever let you go
Had you not said it must be so
How dare you ever doubt my love was true
I would of crawled across this broken world for you
Track Name: Where Do I Go From Here?
Where do I go? Where do I go from here?
Where do I go? Good lord it's been forty years
Where do I go from here?

Feel like I'm driftin', driftin' away
Feel like fading from this place every day
Feel like I'm tryin', tryin' to try
Feel like it's time to kiss this ol' town goodbye

But where do I go? Lord I can't see clear
Where do I go, where do I go from here?

I go downtown feeling lonesome
Then I head back home so I can be alone
This place is wet and I'm dry as a bone
I think it's time to forget...time to get goin'...

But where do I go when nothing I want seems near?
Where do I go if there's nothing new for me here?

And on a secret night
The stars were shining bright
Reflected in your eyes
I saw the rising tide

On the street at night I see my old self
Old times old friends and memories forever on the shelf
Yeah I see that girl but now she's a ghost
And as I walk away it's hard to believe...
....that she and I were ever even close

Where do I go? Some memories cut deep dear
Where do I go? I'm in need of a brand new fear
Where do I go? Good lord it's been forty years
Where do I go? Lord I can't see clear
Where do I go? When nothing I want seems near
Where do I go? If there's nothing new for me here
Where do I go from here
Track Name: Thinkin' 'Bout You
Thinkin' 'bout the people that we used to be
Late night thinkin' 'bout you and me
Thinkin' 'bout the yellow haze twilight past
Thinkin' 'bout you first and last
To the end of the line where my hopes were dashed

Thinkin' 'bout the river and the way it unwinds
Led me to you through forgotten times
Think of our affair and how it all fell flat
Just to leave me thinkin' wonderin' where you're at
Thinkin' that I gave ya what I should of held back

Thinkin' of your smile in the raging storm
Your eyes had the sparkle of a newborn
I think of your caress and your skin so soft
The moon in the sky like a quarter through cloth
Memories like these are hard to shake off

Thinkin' 'bout things that used to be
Thinkin' and wonderin' if you're thinkin' 'bout me
Thinkin' 'bout things that might have been
Thinkin' what it means to never hold you again

Thinkin' 'bout the bottle and I think about the blade
Thinkin' 'bout the beauty of the mess I made
Thinkin' 'bout the feel of the tourniquet
I thought I could control it but I lost that bet
You left my heart in danger and my soul in debt

I think about your curves and your endless hips
Think about kissin' your ambivalent lips
Love fades away down a sliding slope
Like lookin' through the wrong end of a telescope
Headed to the gallows you were handing out the rope

Thinkin' 'bout the roads and the fields turned brown
Thinkin' 'bout the night before the stars fell down
Thinkin' 'bout so many things I have to do
Thinkin' that I oughta stop thinkin' about you

Thinkin' 'bout the words to a long lost tune
Thinkin' you were mine but I spoke too soon
Thinkin' that I thought I could sing it somehow
Thinkin' that thinkin' doesn't matter now
I just get behind the mule every mornin' and plow
