Bessie 03:59
Maybe you were living on the wrong side of the history book Living in a time that just couldn’t keep up Cuz everything in your head went vroom vroom vroom Just the open road and the wild sky in front of you Hey there little girl aint you seen the color of your skin Tell me how the fire got lit with no next of kin Born to just be blazin’ trails coast to coast They would always know your name in the dust you left up Oh Stringfield gold Riding with the angels, laughing at the ghosts Running down the demons with everything you got Life was just a highway without a way to stop Oh, Bessie Took off on a coin toss in a foreign land Took up with the carnival that never paid it’s share But working for the army they just didn’t understand There was too much fight in the belly to keep you down CHORUS Lovin’ them and leavin’ 6 times was enough to bear And the 3rd time losing the seed there would be no heir But riding down to Miami wind in the hair Riding til the day she died as the Queen down there CHORUS

Hanging, waiting at the crossroads 365 and going strong Danger, danger is what they tell ya But all I got, all I got is this holding on I still hope for the light that’s coming at the end of the tunnel And I still lie and smile like nothing is wrong Cuz sometimes it’s a subtle line between grace and the face of the devil It’s where I belong, I belong right or wrong Tempered, it fills the cup of longing Clandestine, it wakes me up at dawn Lately I can’t take it any longer Willing prisoner running towards the gun I still hope for the light that’s coming at the end of the tunnel And I still lie and smile, baby, like nothing is wrong Cuz sometimes it’s a subtle line between grace and the face of the devil It’s where I belong, I belong right or wrong

Remedy 03:08
Nobody’s getting any younger And getting wiser is all that we can do So go on and get it together Before it all gets to you And in the meantime that’s about all I have to say you I’ve been hearing your stories Been a tall tale or two And I even loved you more for them Believing that they would come true But it’s been a long time since I seen the pudding or the proof I got a remedy, I got a remedy for you Take a cold/long hard look in the mirror at the truth I’ve been noticing the changes The subtlty in everything you do The lack of putting it all out there And treating me like I aint’ good to you If you don’t love me then what the hell you putting me through CHORUS Maybe you’re suffering confusion Maybe just a case of the old blues Maybe your past is creeping demons And you’re letting then just run all over you Well I ain’t no doctor baby, but I got a remedy for you CHORUS Nobody’s getting any younger And getting wiser is all that we can do So go on and get your shit together Before it all gets to you And in the meantime that’s about all I have to say you Cuz in the meantime I’ve got better things to do

Feel the weight pulling under Try to brace for the reckoning Piece by piece, layer by layer Make amends with the storm within Sail away on murky water Over head the clouds are gray No turning round; like a soul born sailor The only way on out is going through it Tidal wave and hurricane C’mon, take me under Fire away, take your aim Make it straight for the heart Fire away, I’ll be waiting in the eye of storm Step inside the hallowed forest All the while the dusk is threatening There’s no compass, there’s no breadcrumbs The only way on through is by instinct Avalanche and earthquake C’mon, I surrender CHORUS CHORUS

Alright 03:04
Coming slowly to the end of it Bitter sweetness sealed with a kiss Make the final entrance Turn the other cheek And dance under the stars tonight Oh, it’s alright, Oh, it’s alright Whisper through your holding on too tight C’mon raise your glasses high Hope could be the reason Love could be the rhyme As we dance under the stars tonight Oh, it’s alright, Oh, it’s alright C’mon c’mon it won’t be long now One more cheer for days gone past Let’s go, hi-ho, no don’t look back You never know what’s coming just up on the bend But maybe if you take my hand Oh, it’s alright, Oh, it’s alright my friends

Ain’t it a shame, ain’t it a shame how you’ve been trying Making the play to make it your way all this time Honey you should know by now you’re living in a one horse town Cradle to gave, cradle to grave they own you Heart and the mind toeing the line in vain Tell me how you like it now living in your one horse town It’s all one way, dead end and safety signs Tightrope, short leash at the end of the line Everybody knows the story as old as time Tick tock - tick tock Hand to to the fire, hand to the fire, it’s burning Nose to the grind, quiets the mind, but you keep on Wondering how you’ll get out of this lonely little one horse town CHORUS Retribution of dissolution and watch it fade away Ain’t it a shame, ain’t it a shame how you’ve been trying Making the play to make it your way all this time Honey you should know there isn’t any getting out of this One horse town

Shadows 03:29
When the cold winter's blown in It's all that I can do to hold onto the memory of you And time just keeps on rolling trying to push me through But my heart knows me better than the truth Come on back to me; raise the dead of night Come on back to me when everything is quiet I'll be chasing shadows Faithful in my dreams Slipping through the echoes Locked and bound for eternity Forward keep on forward, but you're still on my mind Heartless like the iron anchor drops it's line I can hear your breathing coming from behind And I still bear the evidence of your heart on mine CHORUS Waiting waiting for you Crying and staying and hating that it’s true... CHORUS Locked and bound til you come back to me

Sugar 03:35
Sugar sugar, I don’t know what you do Sugar sugar, you got me all wrapped up in you I been waiting all night long for all your love and just to be close to you Sugar sugar, what you got it tastes so sweet Sugar baby, oh all the things you do to me C’mon baby and take all my love with all your care And tell me I’m not dreamin, tell me I’m the only one Let’s make this story forever into the setting sun Cuz I’ll be spending all my time just to make you understand doing my best Sugar sugar, I think I know what you do to me Looking into those eyes Snuggling up to me Never wanna leave your side Yeah you know how to get to me Even in the worst of times You make it feel alright So jump in for the ride Cuz you got what I need Sugar, sugar, sugar
