Back On The Ground                               

 

Intro

I was just having fun never meant any harm

Grabbed my jacket and my good luck charm

There’s just no way that I’ll go there again

Fall back on the ground

 

 

Friday Night I was out on the run

With a lust for poker and a wild hair

I broke away but it was all in fun

It must be  -  I had a fever

My girl left me there

And I could not retrieve her

But then again I thought I could win

And all the fun I was having then

Turned around and I lost my skin

Now I’m back on the outside

And I’m looking in

Now I’m back on the ground

 

 

My girl came back after I begged for hours

I sold my watch, to buy her some flowers

One of these days I’m gonna win

There’s just no way I can go there again

Go back on the ground

 

 

I was just having fun

But it all turned around

I was up in the clouds 

Then I crashed to the ground

My tainted luck 

Had again been found

Every time I get close to winning

Fate comes around 

And reminds me I’m sinning

Never thought I could do it again

Fall back on the ground

And all the fun I was having then

Turned upside down 

And she left me again

Now I’m back on the ground

 

Chorus

I was just having fun never meant any harm

But soon found out it costs a leg and an arm

One of these days I’m gonna win

There’s just no way I can go there again

Fall back on the ground

Now I’m back on the ground

History Of My Broken Heart

 

Verse 1:
There's a piece of my soul
screaming to be heard
like the waves of an ocean
and the wings of a bird

Scarred from the battles
won't come out to play
saving all of my love
for a cold rainy day

Pre-Chorus:
I watch the happy couples
they walk hand in hand
as I fall through the hourglass
a tiny grain of sand

Chorus:
It's the history
of my broken heart
this falling in love
is tearing me apart

I can't take it anymore
just say goodbye
and close the door

Verse 2:
Once I was in love
now I keep it all in inside
when a relationship sours
a part of me dies

How do you walk away
and leave it all behind?
memories play like old movies
locked away deep in my mind

Pre-Chorus:
Building up the walls
do what it takes to survive
no more emotional pain
but I'm barely alive

Chorus:
It's the history
of my broken heart
this falling in love
is tearing me apart

I can't take it anymore
just say goodbye
and close the door

Outro:
It's the history
of my broken heart
this falling in love
is tearing me apart

I can't take it anymore
just say goodbye
and close the door

just say goodbye
and close the door

just say goodbye
and close the door

just say goodbye
and close the door

I'm Letting It All Go

 

Take the pain with you
And our memories too
Because tonight I'm letting go
I have nothing else to lose

 

(C)
I'm letting it all go 
I'm Leaving it all behind
It feels like I'm breathing 
for the very first time
I'm letting it all go

 

It's a new day a new dream
I'm ready to start over clean
I don't need you here with me
I'm letting go of what used to be

 

(C)
I'm letting it all go 
I'm Leaving it all behind
It feels like I'm breathing 
for the very first time
I'm letting it all go

 

I'm going to Forgive and forget
I Don't want to live with any regrets
I'm just working on the best of me
For the first time I'm feeling free

 

(C)
I'm letting it all go 
I'm Leaving it all behind
It feels like I'm breathing 
for the very first time
I'm letting it all go

I Don't Want To Dream Tonight

V1
I still remember your touch
And the smell of your old work shirt
I can't think of you without having it hurt


(Chorus)
I don't want to dream tonight
I don't want to turn out the light
If I can just stay awake
I'll be alright; I'll bre alright.

V2

You never come out of the shadows
But still, I know you're there
But darlin, you can't stay 
We're just two lonely souls 
That can't go back to yesterday
So....

(Chorus)
I don't want to dream tonight
I don't want to turn out the light
If I can just stay awake
I'll be alright; I'll be alright.


V3
I keep my mind occupied 
Almost all day long
Sometimes I put in overtime 
To make the 9-5 drag on
At home I got Netflix 
To keep me company 
I do anything I can
So I won't fall asleep... cause I don't want to dream tonight 


chorus
I don't want to dream tonight
I don't want to turn out the light
If I can just stay awake
I'll be alright; I'll be alright.

 

Bridge
You said losing us is the
biggest regret we'll ever know
Darlin it's true, you are my broken dream
That refuses to let go 
I know I'm dreaming 
Just pretending
But still, I can't 
change the ending 
So...

 

Chorus
I don't want to dream tonight
I don't want to turn out the light
If I can just stay awake
I'll be alright; I'll be alright.

Catch Me On The Rebound
 

(verse 1)                    
I'm in a mood just shy of malicious,
Feedin' on anger and regret,
Deep in this brood, dark and delicious,
And I'm not through enjoyin' it yet...

 

(climb/refrain 1)
So you'd best come by some other time,
'Cause I don't feel like bein' nice,
And I'm sayin'...
Catch me on the rebound...
Catch me on the rebound...
Catch me on the rebound,
That's my advice.

 

(verse 2)
I'm guessin' you heard 'bout how he left me,
That kind of news don't travel slow,
But messing with words just now won't get me
Back to the place I'd rather go...

 

(climb/refrain 2)
Yeah, I've been depressed, not at my best,
So what more can I say?
Take a hint and
Catch me on the rebound...
Catch me on the rebound...
Catch me on the rebound,
Just go away.


(bridge)
I don't mean to seem such a drama queen,
But there's a movie playin' in my head.
I keep reelin' through it, scene-by-scene,
Feelin' black and blue and seeing red!

 

(short instrumental, then modulate ½ step)

 

(verse 3)
I must admit, you're wicked persistent,
Got to admire this grit you show,
Anyone else would have been indignant
And told me by now just where to go...

 

(closing climb/refrain)
So you're of a mind to try and find
The better part of me?
I can see you're tough, smile broad enough,
And don't discourage easily,
Well, c'mon then,
Catch me on the rebound...
Catch me on the rebound...
Catch me on the rebound,
That's where I'll be...

 

Catch me on the rebound,
And maybe we'll see...

 

Catch me on the rebound...
Just you and me!

All I Had To Do

 

Danny found a bank outside of Tarrytown

Eddie scoped it out 'n said,“We're taking ‘er down”

I told them they were crazy but they brought me around

When they promised me

 

All I had to do-woo-hoo

Was drive the car

 

Danny loved his money 'n he blew it so well

Eddie had a habit that was starting to swell

Their daddy owned a Chevy that was cherry as hell

A sweet, rocket machine

 

All I had to do-woo-hoo

Was drive the car

 

'81 Camaro

Canary and black

Brand new Hemi engine

Lit a fire on the track

The brothers thought we oughta take it out for a spin

I burned out of the parking lot before they got in

 

All I had to do-woo-hoo

Was drive the car

 

Friday afternoon would be no average day

We parked across the bank in front of Nails 'n Rays

Ten or fifteen minutes, then we'd be on our way

Junior, just sit tight

 

All I had to do-woo-hoo

Was drive the car

 

Shelley Ann Lakota, local homecoming queen

Walked out with a pedicure 'n ran into me

Looked me in the eyes 'n took a hold of the wheel 

Said “You're mine tonight”

 

All I had to do-woo-hoo

Was drive the car

 

'81 Camaro

Canary and black

Brand new Hemi engine

Had some room in the back

Got her horizontal 'n I opened her wide

Had her motor racing like a newlywed bride

 

All I had to do-woo-hoo

Was drive the car

 

They told me all I had to do

Was drive the car

 

Woo-Hoo!

Miss Green


 

Miss Green

May I have a word with you?

I’ll even stay after school

To tell you, Miss Green

 

Miss Green

I watch you in the classroom

Got me a front row view

And here's the thing, Miss Green   

 

Miss Green, you’re so fine

You appeared in a dream of mine

We was dancin’ close an’

You were in my arms

In the auditorium

While the band played on

And everyone could see

I had a thing for you, Miss Green

 

<Bridge>

Oh--- they could never understand

Twenty-two and seventeen

But oh---- all I think about is you

And I turn eighteen in a month, or two

 

Miss Green

I don't want to alarm you

And I never could harm you

If it's all just a dream

 

For dreams

Are strange and mystic things

Teach me all a smile could be

Oh, Miss Green

I just got to tell you, lady

 

Miss Green, you’re so fine

You appeared in a dream of mine

We was dancin’ close an’

You were in my arms  

In the auditorium

While the band played on

And everyone could see

I had a thing for you, Miss Green

 

Oh, I had the sweetest dream, Miss Green

So, so fine, Miss Green

Oh----- Miss Green

And wedding bells chime

(Verse 1)

 

It feels like only yesterday

The sweet caress of your warm skin

Soft as petals dampened by the rain

Awakening butterflies within.

 

(Chorus)

I take your hand

And you take mine

The music plays

And wedding bells chime.

 

(Verse 2)

I know it's only memories

Jolted by this faded photograph

Feet squelching as we fled the rain

I can hear the echo of your laugh.

 

(Chorus)

I take your hand

And you take mine

The music still plays

And wedding bells chime.

 

(Bridge)

Tears not raindrops falling freely now

Not sure how long I've kept them in,

Petals falling from a stem

I love you, don't, I love you, don't

Don't doubt I'd say 'I do' again.

 

(Chorus)

I take your hand

And you take mine

The music still plays

And wedding bells chime.

 

(Verse 3)

Seems like it was only yesterday

A fleeting crazy blink of an eye

Can't have been quite so long ago

The fashions and haircuts dispel that lie.

 

(Chorus/Outro)

I take your hand

And you take mine

The music still plays

And wedding bells chime.

And I look up and see your blue eyes again

Feel your hand close on mine though the fog's drawing in.

Hear you whisper three words

And I smile from my bed,

We're running again

Feet squelch in the mud,

We're running until we can't run any more

Laughing 'til breathless we collapse on the floor.

The music still plays, yes it plays

And wedding bells chime

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ME

 

VERSE 1:

A doctor’s smack a cry is heard

The month of June in '62

From waters warm to cold dark world

My maiden voyage into the blue

Happy Birthday me

Happy Birthday me

 

VERSE 2:

Today’s the day I’m 18 now

No guarantees no certain plan

I'll make my mark without a doubt

Setting sail to unknown lands

Happy Birthday me

Happy Birthday me

 

VERSE 3:

Turned 41 and all alone

No loving kids or better half

It’s all I got to stay afloat

This joyless song my epitath

Happy Birthday me

Happy Birthday me

 

INSTRUMENTAL

 

VERSE 4:

Adrift at sea couldn’t find my way

A light of hope changed everything

I'm changing course, it’s not too late

With newborn dreams my soul now sings

Happy Birthday me

Happy Birthday me

How Can It Be Enough

 

Wasn't it enough ...to join our hearts together              

And hope...... that somehow love would find a way

Now waking from our dreams  

Of sweet tomorrows   

We find ourselves

Surrounded,

By bitter yesterdays     

 

Isn't it enough..... our lives have grown so tangled

While sharing all the waters from love's well

We promised then.. our story                      

Was forever                        

Can it be true?,          

There's nothing

Left to tell

 

Chorus:

I watch the clouds that block out all our sunshine  

The rain that falls are tears that never dry

And every I Love You we'd say

Is growing fainter everyday

As we both stumble slowly

Through our days            

 

Bridge:

Life is more than skies with troubled storm clouds

The sun and wind will clear away this rain                  

I'm ready for the world to make me over

I'm ready for an end to all this pain

 

Verse 3:

Oh.. can it be enough .....that birds awaken singing

Or ancient stars... burn brightly through the night 

If you're not here, how does this earth ...

Keep spinning 

How can it be enough ......

Without you

At my side

 

Chorus:

I watch the clouds that block out all our sunshine  

The rain that falls are tears that never dry

And every I Love You we'd say

Forgotten now along the way

As we both stumble slowly

Through our days

Always Believe (Something Wonderful)

 

V1

A child is born under a warm summer sky

His parents they live for the gleam in his eye

They teach him to read and teach him to write

And they sing him to sleep almost every night

 

C

They sing

Always believe

In the truth in your heart

Always believe

And you'll have a head start

Always believe

In the next harvest moon

And always believe

Something wonderful is coming soon

 

V2

Momma & Poppa worked their fingers to the bone                                                       

To provide for their boy they'd turn any stone                                                                

They showed him a path to do what's right

As he followed in their footsteps he heard every night

 

C

They'd sing

Always believe

In the truth in your heart

Always believe

And you'll have a head start

Always believe

In the next harvest moon

And always believe

Something wonderful is coming soon

 

V3

The boy grew up straight and the boy up strong

And as always happens before all that long

He found him a girl who was soulful and bright

They sing to their daughter almost every night

 

C

They sing

Always believe

In the truth in your heart

Always believe

And you'll have a head start

Always believe

In the next harvest moon

And always believe

Something wonderful is coming soon

Always believe

Something wonderful is coming soon

Good Morning Sunshine

 

(Chorus)

Good morning sunshine

Good morning sunlight

Will you shine all day long

Would you dry my tears today

Good morning sunshine

Good morning sunlight

Will you right all the wrong

Would you dry my tears away

 

(Verse One)

Winter has come and gone, the nights were so long

It's been a long old time since I've seen the sun

What were you waiting for, spring is now around

And I can't stand being found the lonely one

 

This morning I looked up to the skies

The sun was shining with no disguise

And in my life I sure need the light

How I was longing to see it shine

 

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

Good morning sunshine

Good morning sunlight

Will you shine all day long

Would you dry my tears today

Good morning sunshine

Good morning sunlight

Will you right all the wrong

Would you dry my tears away

 

 (Verse Two)

Can't you see I need you, we're so far apart

Why, love, did you leave me with a broken heart

I need to see your face, feel your warm embrace

I wish I had known someone would take my place

 

For this feeling, there ain't no healing

To dry my tears, you're the only one

I need love for a heart that's reeling

This morning, it's good to see the sun

 

(Chorus)

Afraid to Open My Eyes (In case you disappear)

 

Verse 1

I still go down to the river

Lie on our soft green bed

But now when shadows fall over me

I'm afraid to turn my head

They may be only clouds

Shielding the summer rays

and not you leaning over me

Tempting with your playful gaze - playful ways

 

Chorus 1

Afraid to open my eyes

In case you disappear

Although they say it's over

that's still painful to hear

Minutes stretch into hours and

Hours I've learned to fear

Cos each time I open my eyes - you disappear

 

Verse 2

I still hear the sound of voices

Far off but coming my way

Like when you came to find me

When temper had led me astray

Tempted to turn my head, is it

Strangers on holiday?

Or you calling out to me

to find me like yesterday - how I pray

 

Chorus 2

Afraid to open my eyes

In case you disappear

Although they say it's over

that's still painful to hear

Minutes stretch into hours and

Hours I've learned to fear

Cos each time I open my eyes - you disappear

 

Break

This place is me and you

I come here often - do you?

I come here often to be alone with you - do you?

Do you...?

 

Chorus 3

Afraid to open my eyes

In case you disappear

Although they say it's over

that's still painful to hear

Minutes stretch into hours and

hours I've learned to fear

Cos each time I open my eyes - you disappear

Wishes Of Love 

 

(Intro)
There may be many miles between us 
Although it doesn't seem that way
When we are cherishing each other
Sharing troubles every day

 

 (1)
If one of us is needing help
There is never cause for fear
It's as if we're not alone 
The other one is always near

 

(2)
Life can sometimes be a struggle
And problems drag us down
If one of us should stumble 
The other lifts us off the ground

 

(Ch)
Like Guardian angels embracing one another 
Blessings span the distance we're apart
When we're befriending, we are sending 
Wishes of love, from our hearts

 

(Br)                          
Having intuition, interacting as we do
We experience what our partner's going through
Knowing what the other is in most need of.  
Sending selfless thoughts of endless love

 

(Ch)
Like guardian angels embracing one another
Blessings span the miles we are apart
When we're befriending, we are sending 
Wishes of love, from our hearts

 

(Finale)
Some people say that we're enchanted
Sceptics shake their heads and laugh
Yet we both know our devotions are true
When we're connecting, we are projecting
Wishes of love from our hearts

No Present Like the Time                   

 

V1   

Chocolate cake and candles, my kids'll be here soon  

To razz their Dad for turning sixty-one 

My own Dad's home in Depoe Bay, it's hard for him to fly 

He calls to say, Happy Birthday, son 

 

V2 
I didn't send a gift, but you know I wanted to 

My mind tends to drift, and I forgot 

No more time for shopping now, too late, I'm sorry, son 

I'll mail you a check for what you want 

 

Chorus  

Dad, you always gave me more than enough

By being around when I was growing up 

Fishing for cutthroat on the North Santiam  

That day at Garibaldi digging clams 

The hours you helped me with projects of mine

Dad, there's no present like the time  

 

V3  

His voice cracked a little, he struggled with his words 

Said, son, I remember, just like you 

All the time we spent together when you were a kid 

Those times were a gift to me, too 

 

Chorus  

Dad, you always gave me more than enough

By being around when I was growing up 

Fishing for cutthroat on the North Santiam  

That day at Garibaldi digging clams 

The hours you helped me with projects of mine

Dad, there's no present like the time  

 

Bridge 

Sittin' in the kitchen with Dad on the line 

My wife and kids and grandkids laughing on the porch  

All of us want to be here, we're trying to get it right 

Four generations, passing the torch  

 

Chorus  

Dad, you always gave me more than enough

By being around when I was growing up 

Fishing for cutthroat on the North Santiam  

That day at Garibaldi digging clams 

The hours you helped me with projects of mine

Dad, there's no present like the time

Evening Echo

 

V
When your old friend

Sends the invite
We're dead sure

That it's the right night
Drive out of the city

Crazy far
Until the sky's

A million billion stars

V
People swimming

Like in Eden
It's a paradise

For heathens
Faces dance in mirrors

Everywhere
There's such a sense

Of freedom in the air

C
I see spiders run from geckos
In a house that's pure Art Deco
Filled with paintings by El Greco
Can you hear the evening echo?
Can you hear the evening echo?
Can you hear... the evening echo?

V
A guest goes walking

In the desert
Dressed in nothing

But a nightshirt
He disappears

Behind colossal rocks
Later on

The cops'll spot his socks

C
I see spiders run from geckos
In a house that's pure Art Deco
Filled with paintings by El Greco
Can you hear the evening echo?
Can you hear the evening echo?
Can you hear... the evening echo?

B
I'm thinking that the party is so cool
And then we find the body in the pool

(Instrumental)

C
I see spiders run from geckos
In a house that's pure Art Deco
Filled with paintings by El Greco
Can you hear the evening echo?
Can you hear the evening echo?
Can you hear... the evening echo?
(Repeat)

 

Outro

And I'm thinking that the party is so cool

Then we find... the body in the pool

Mr. Banker

 

Mr. Banker, don't you give me any loan
All that money that you lent me is now gone
You said the odds were looking up when we discussed it on the phone
But, Mr. Banker, please don't give me any more

 

Mr. Banker, don't believe a word I say
The truth has long been gambled all away
My family - they saw me leave - now living on my own
Mr. Banker, don't you give me any loan

 

I don't know why I can't resist
The roulette wheel,
The poker chips
But I don't want to be like this
Anymore

 

Mr. Banker, I'm not blaming you at all
You could've stopped me but I know that's not your job
The numbers that I showed you never hinted at a fall
So Mr. Banker, don't take blame for this at all

 

I don't know why I can't resist
The roulette wheel,
The stack of chips
But I don't want to be like this
Anymore

 

You shake my hand, it seems I'm all approved
Casino doors will greet me pretty soon
There's no point now revealing that I have this secret hope..
That Mr. Banker, you won't give me any loan

 

Oh, but Mr. Banker, please don't give me any more..

How Bad You Got The Blues?

 

Your girlfriend she broke up with you

And now you're really sad -boo hoo

You think you got the blues? 

 

But you'll be all patched up real soon

She'll save you from a life of ruin

You almost had the blues

 

You bought yourself a slide guitar

You're playing out in college bars

How bad you got the blues?

 

I'll check on you again real soon 

We can catch up on your news 

And maybe then we'll see just

How bad you got the blues? 

How bad...

How bad you got the blues?

 

Excuse me for my nonchalance

We call you guys blues dilettantes

How bad you got the blues? 

 

You ever have to take a life?

Or carve a man up with a knife? 

How bad you got the blues? 

 

You ever strung out on the crack? 

You do twelve years can't get 'em back

How bad you got the blues? 

 

I gotta couple questions more

Do you still have things to lose?

Rock bottom is a hard mattress

How bad you got the blues?

How bad...

How bad you got the blues?

 

And when you're finally on parole

Ain't no one cares -no none at all

How bad you got the blues? 

 

And all the cops they know your name

They're hoping you'll screw up again

How bad you got the blues? 

 

So all you blues boy dilettantes

I say be careful what you want

(spoken)...Cuz you don't know 

How bad you got the blues.

The Sun Is King

 

Verse 1

I open the curtain to let the light in

He's staring right at me

There's no way to stop him, no way I can win

He brings me to my knees

 

Pre-Chorus 1

He's scared of the rain

But birds sing his name

Begging him to stay

 

Chorus 

The king rules gently

But he never lets go

Sometimes he feels empty

Sometimes he's alone

And no one seems to notice

The effect that he has on them

He controls the world with the tips of his fingers

The sun won't set on him

 

Verse 2

When my heart breaks he is standing there still

And when I am strong he is too

His presence is constant, it gives me a thrill

Thinking of all I could do

 

Pre-Chorus 2

I'm dreading his reign

Each one's not the same

And no one wants to say

 

Chorus 

The king rules gently

But he never lets go

Sometimes he feels empty

Sometimes he's alone

And no one seems to notice

The effect that he has on them

He controls the world with the tips of his fingers

The sun will always win

 

Bridge

The sun

The sun

The sun is king

The sun

The sun

The sun is king

 

Chorus 

The king rules gently

But he never lets go

Sometimes he feels empty

Sometimes he's alone

And no one seems to notice

The effect that he has on them

He controls the world with the tips of his fingers

The sun will always win

Feelin' Like Medusa

 

V1
It started this mornin'
When you rolled out of bed 
Complainin' the pillow's
Too hard for your head
You ate the last biscuit

While I fried up your eggs 

Said the new neighbour's cute
'N I oughta shave my legs

 

Pre-chorus
Well darlin', these fine times

Ain't gonna last 

Unless you learn reeeeal fast...


Chorus
I'm gettin' twitchy
Trigger finger's itchy
So unless you're bringin' good news 
You better back away
'Cause I'm feelin' like Medusa
On a bad-hair day

 

V1
The Chevy needs fixin'
'N the fridge is on the blink
The kids are all ailin' 
Somethin's blockin' the sink 
N' here you come, scuttlin'
Like a crab to the pot
Not a lick of good sense  

'N the water's gettin' hot 

 

Pre-chorus
Well darlin', these fine times

Ain't gonna last 

Unless you learn reeeeal fast...


Chorus
I'm gettin' twitchy
Trigger finger's itchy 
So unless you're bringin' good news 
You better back away
'Cause I'm feelin' like Medusa
On a bad-hair day

 

Bridge
Don't blame this on PMS
You ain't layin' that on me 

No, the problem here is ZMS
Zero Male Sensitivity

Chorus
I'm getting' twitchy
Trigger finger's itchy
So unless you're bringin' good news 
You better back away
'Cause I'm feelin' like Medusa
On a bad-hair day

Outro (fading)
Look at me sideways

...C'mon, I dare ya...

... Look at me sideways

You bet I'll scare ya

I'll turn you to stone
...Now leave me alone

'Cause I'm feeling' like Medusa

On a bad-hair day...

Everything Must Go (The Banjo Song)

 

(Verse)

 I found my old banjo

By the magazine stand

Everything must go

That was the plan

 

My son said Mom is gone

There's not enough space

Let's move the banjo along

And get it out of my face

 

(Verse)

 I tuned it up as best I could

I started out a little rusty

That banjo understood

I felt warmth inside me

 

My stiff fingers and hands

Became nimble and quick

I was back with the band

So I played a few licks

 

(Chorus)

I remember the music

Everything must go

The bluegrass, the country

Everything must go

That banjo was magic

Everything must go

As it played with me

 

(Bridge)

The songs came in a rush

From deep in my heart

The banjo was my brush

The music was my art

 

(Chorus)

 

(Verse)

I turned around

My son had been there

Listening to it all along

He stood and glared

Then he took the banjo

Tore it from my hand

And said Nice show-
One heck of a final stand

  

(Chorus)
