Wakin' up in the morning in the nick of time Hangin' on by a string Whistle a tune just to ease my mind Yes we all got a song to sing I know my song has left this town I ought to have done the same I wanna take my bike along the canal And glide, a ghost with no name I ain't bothered working so hard That's not what cuts my mind But it knots my stomach and spins my head To think what I might leave behind Every time I feel it slippin' away I've got to let my voice ring out But I seem to be fading day by day I wonder how much longer now? Oh my God Workin' so hard, day after day, Would have thought you'd have saved up Oh my love Workin' so hard, year after year, Must be hard to stay young Tell me did you stay young? I wake up in the morning put my head outside It's always the same old tune I remember the time when you'd pass by And stay till the afternoon Through the fall the warmth moved out You were wont to do the same It feels empty now along the canal I'm calling out your name I can see now with a new town Doesn't come a new song to sing My song left and your song stayed The town don't mean a thing So hit me once on the side of the face Please don't turn me away We both know we have to change We've been living the same old way Oh my God Workin' so hard, day after day, would have thought you'd have saved up Oh my love Workin' so hard, year after year, Must be hard to stay young Tell me did you stay young? Wakin' up in the morning in the nick of time Hangin' on by a string Whistle a tune just to ease my mind Yes we all got a song to sing So hit me once on the side of the face Oh please don't turn me away It feels empty now along the canal I'm calling out your name

I know there's a heaven Because I've been to hell And death is my highest reward Anyone can see I've taken a few And I think I can take a few more The good lord knows I've taken a few And I think I can take a few more Working and being No difference between them Mind and body the same I move and I speak and I strain and I creak and Peace comes when I don't feel a thing I move and I speak and I strain and I creak and Peace comes when I don't feel a thing If I never (x2) Move my old bones again I'll be happy and happy I'll be happy then Time is a straight road And I count my miles Every time that old sun goes down Ain't no pleasure sweeter Than a good six feet deeper In a cold coffin under the ground If I never (x2) Move my old bones again I'll be happy and happy I'll be happy then If I never (x2) Whoah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh And death is my highest reward If I never (x2) Move my old bones again I'll be happy and happy I'll be happy then

Graveyards 02:44
I found myself dear Sitting in a candle flame Never known it better Nothing's meant to stay the same I found yourself dear Sitting by a broken train Steady going nowhere Reasoning with the insane I've been dancing in graveyards Spreading flowers 'round Unmoved spectators lying Neat rows in the ground Little mothers get your young sitting in the graveyards Little mothers get your young dance em all till mornings come Dance em all till morning I've been searching for the truth Dance em all till morning come I've found a heart that's kept it's youth It's no disrespect dear Let's finish as we'd like to live Cast off your old fear Why rest when there's more love to give Strip your armor, your daggers Leave that world behind Let's go dancing in graveyards Show them folks a real good time Little mothers get your young sitting in the graveyards Little mothers get your young dance em all till mornings come Dance em all till morning come dance em round the graveyard Dance em all till morning come little mothers get your young Little mothers get your young sitting in the graveyards Little mothers get your young dance em all till mornings come Dance em all till morning I've been searching for the truth Dance em all till morning come I've found a heart that's kept it's youth

Sorry Jack 04:55
Oh lord, I met a girl She looked like Dixieland With sawdust eyes and long white boots She woke me up my head, good lord; she woke me up my head She took me for a man, good lord Took me for a dance She told me I could change my life I didn't understand a word, I didn't understand I can’t believe I never knew before Why I was angry all the time Or how Big Jim had us saving our money up just until the next Friday night Two years of living, good lord I was a different man One year to empty my whole life One to fill it up again; so good to fill it up again Oh lord she told me once When it was time to let her go Would you guess that's when I tried to hold on more than ever before? I tried to do as she said Good fishermen are kind But when she up and disappeared I held a broken line, good lord; I held a broken line I know I ought to not have Drove my car onto the dancehall floor That dumb look in their eyes, when I asked 'em what they were living for Two years of living, good lord I never could have guessed But two days without a trace of her I was a mess at best, I know; I was a mess at best Oh lord she told me once When it was time to let her go Would you guess that's when I tried to hold on more than ever before? I tried to change my life, good lord I tried to change their minds Driving my fists into their skulls Now I'm on the gallows line, oh god; I'm on the gallows line

Rio 05:22
It was probably a false explosion but baby I'm not sticking around It was probably a false explosion but baby I'm headed down I'm headed down to Rio baby You can bury me in the cold, cold ground I don't mind dying It was probably a false explosion baby I'm not waiting to find out It was probably a false explosion but baby I'm headed down I'm headed down to Rio baby You can bury me with all your other clowns You can bury me with along with your losers in the cold, cold ground I don't mind dyin' It was there in the silence of the night I saw a long dark tunnel and a flash of blinding light I felt my heart a-pounding it was beating to my head I've got to go I've got to see I got to repay my last debt

Fall and winter, and into spring Summer heat and i'm back in your streets Fall and winter, and I'm back in your streets Dunno my baby, I ain't been home since when I'm back in town boys, gonna make her love me again Dunno my baby, gonna make her love me again I'm here and then i'm gone just like it's always been if you say goodbye when you see me babe you know I'll understand I'm not here to stay but good things are meant to pass Just one smile before I go and stick your key in the tall grass - Oh yeah Workin' man is hungry, rich man's in his den Some say it's the devil but I sure am getting fed Workin' man is hungry, I sure am getting fed Ain't found Jesus, but I can keep my head Ain't been a drinker, found the blues instead Ain't found Jesus, found the blues instead I'll take my chances with the whisky and the knives If I can't make the juke then I can't make it in this life Surrounded by their burdens men much lonelier than I Just give me the guitar and I'll make your Saturday night - C'mon Fall and winter, and into spring Summer heat and i'm back in your streets Fall and winter, and I'm back in your streets Dunno my baby, I ain't been home since when I'm back in town boys, gonna make her love me again Dunno my baby, gonna make her love me again

Liza Ray 04:57
You took me down to Ramble Creek Where we spent all day into the evenin’ I was livin’ just to laugh Never thought I’d have to give a reason Liza Ray When the morning calls your name Will you comfort me? I’m feeling all alone Liza Ray, will you comfort me? In the morning I am feeling all alone I can turn the earth and sow the seeds I can drag myself along behind my father I can strive for something more I can sit in a room with walls and boxes I’ve cut my hair and shined my shoes Sometimes I forget that I’m pretending Fools may say they’ve tamed the wild But there’s a corner in my heart where you’re still hiding It’s not the nights that are so bad I’ve got my radio and I’ve got my whiskey But when that silent sun rears up A thousand-pound hammer falls and hits me

Secret Smile 04:09
When you're young, you get sad I heard Ryan sing tonight Singing now with every word Trying how to next escape the dull life I ain't done being sad I am changing with time Tell me the world is bad Is it better if you close your eyes Then close your eyes Finding out long overdue A giver Finding out true for me too A giver I've got a secret Harder to live than to find Happiness stays not with Those who take from them but those who are kind Stormy nights It calms me like a lullaby child Walking through this life I guard it with a secret smile Finding out long overdue A giver Finding out true for me too A giver

Lazy Jayne 03:19
Lazy Jayne Eyes of rain Your window's open and you're wondering what could wander in Lazy Jayne Am I to blame? When the clouds roll in it's then I'm on my knees again I'm begging of you won't pick up your boots won't you come along with me You make me a man when you lead me to the water and you ask me what I see You got me wonderin' about the way I'm going you got me questioning the air I breathe I'm fine... you'll see Lazy Jayne Is it just a name? You make your plans then you watch the rain as it washes them away Lazy Jayne Firey dame Nobody knows it but your legs are like missiles when you're sleeping next to me I'm begging of you won't pick up your boots won't you come along and see It must seem funny when it comes so easy but it don't come easy to me You got me wonderin' about the way I'm going you got me questioning the air I breathe It's fine... you'll see Lazy Jayne Eyes of rain Speak to me softly in morning time we'll chase the bad dreams away Lazy Jayne Firey dame When you speak so true it makes me higher than the moon babe you put the world to shame I'm begging of you won't pick up your boots won't you come along with me If you worked hard you could have all you wanted but I guess you just want a piece You got me wonderin' about the way I'm going you got me ready to bend my knee Just wait... and see I'm begging of you won't pick up your boots won't you come along with me You make me a man when you lead me to the water and I tell you everything I see You got me wonderin' about the way I'm going you got me ready to bend my knee Just wait... and see

Go away my clover Get out of my head I'm tired of hearing what the people said Go away my clover Get out of my bed I can finally recognize the smell of death I met a ghost down in New Orleans, her eyes shone like fire reflected in the sea, reflected in the sea She looked at my clover and shook her head, She said soon my friend I fear we'll all be dead, we'll all be dead Go away my clover Get out of my head How can I live with nothing but regret Go away my clover Get out of my bed I'm up all night, I cannot rest my head I've been chasing the clover my whole life, Thought if it smelled so sweet it must taste mighty fine, it must taste mighty fine I couldn't be happy with just one bite, Guess I should have known then that something wasn't right, something wasn't right Go away my clover Let me be free I thought I was myself but it wasn't me Go away my clover You're not for me I can't believe I thought you're all I'd need I went to the men working in the fields, Women and children working at their heals, working at their heals I asked a man what is your wage, He said this is America and we're your slaves, and we're your slaves Go away my clover I went to the mountain to have a look As I climbed I found no mountaintop, just a barren hole in the rock I asked the mountain what has been done I have gone so your factories can run, so your factories can run

I've been walking all night I'll be walking till the end of the road I've been hoping child-like That all roads lead where I've been told Make it wide make it big as the sea Make it rise Make it whole make it a part of me Make it roll on In the morning light It's the only thing that makes me Rise I've been tossing all night Trying to figure out a way back home I've been staying out of sight There's only one thing that could heal my soul Make it tall make it wide as the sea Make it rise Make it whole make it a part of me Make it roll on In the morning light Like a sea of green, my home I see it Rise I have seen too much I am spoiled and rotten inside Could she bear my touch Could I leave this all behind I got a one track mind I've got to make it back to her door The only thing worthwhile Are the mountains I left long ago Make it wide make it big as the sea Make it rise Make it tall make it a part of me Make it roll on In the morning light Like a sea of green, my home I see it Rise
