Track Name: Without A Buck
Left without a buck
The money's gone and all you got to show's an empty bottle baby
Runnin' out of luck
Play the hand you're dealt
You read 'em and you weep my darlin'
Going up in smoke
You're leavin', you're leavin' me alone
Nothing left to show
For the hearts we won, the love we lost
The high stake games we liked to play

Gambled on your love
Dollars gone to dust
What I'd give
For one more night with you

You know I'm left without a buck
The money's gone you're leavin' me
You know I'm runnin' out of luck
You gotta roll the dice to play the game
When you left me all alone
And I couldn't bare to face the day
You know I'm left without a buck
When the hand you're dealt takes faith

Loved a wanderin' fool
Fell for all the lines I said and you believed 'em darling
Pretty southern girl
For the way she walked, the feeling sparked
The cold pacific wind was blowing
Going up in smoke
You're leavin', you're leavin' me alone
Guess I went for broke
Yeah I had her in my arms you see
But now she's slipped away from me

Gambled on your love
Dollars gone to dust
What I'd give
For one more night with you

You know I'm left without a buck
The money's gone you're leavin' me
You know I'm runnin' out of luck
You gotta roll the dice to play the game
When you left me all alone
And I couldn't bare to face the day
You know I'm left without a buck
When the hand you're dealt takes faith
Baby don't you run
Track Name: 1000 Beers
You should know
Not to hang, not to cling
I was born to this world running free
Kick back baby, let's enjoy the ebb and flow
Whiskey
Guitar
They're all I know
All I know

I swear I drank a thousand beer
And I must have lost my mind
But I'm going out west to see my girl
And I'll see you somewhere down the line

Just step back
I don't yell, I don't fight
Live today and we'll see about tonight
I'll be rolling down that long and winding road
Whiskey
Guitar
They're all I know
All I know

I swear I drank a thousand beer
And I must have lost my mind
But I'm going out West to see my girl
And I'll see you somewhere down the line
I swear I'd wait a thousand years
Just to hold her in my arms
But I'm going out west to see my girl
And I'll see you somewhere down the line

I'll be leaving, you'll be waiting
Westward wind blows, see my baby
Watch the sunrise, long horizon
See you somewhere down the line
Track Name: Pass Along
Gonna pass along,
All that life and love may have to give.
Turn that record on,
Play it loud enough for us to live.

Dark days were once,
When thunder tore the sky,
As I lay bare.

Gone back for more,
‘Til stars fell from the night,
And seas left shore.

I never thought I’d make it out and still be alive.
But now, my darling, I’ll never forget,
Those days left behind.

Gonna pass along,
All that life and love may have to give.
Turn that record on,
Play it loud enough for us to live.

I’m running now,
To where, at last, I saw,
Your feet touch ground.

Storm soaked your hair,
And blew it everywhere,
‘Til it died down.

I never thought I’d see a light shinin’ so bright,
And now, my darling, I just can’t forget,
Those days left behind.

Gonna pass along,
All that life and love may have to give.
Turn that record on,
Play it loud enough for us to live.

Gonna pass along,
All that life and love may have to give.
Track Name: The Back Door
As I sit right here looking out the back door
And beyond that door an open, rusty gate
You never even know, when the night's getting late
It seemed like yesterday we'd see the glass full
And take the night on cold drink after drink
You never even know, when you're on your last legs

If what you say, ain't what you do
Better check that mirror baby 'cause time won't wait for you
Did you see it? Do you know why?
No more questions honey and no place left to hide
Yesterday's gone, tomorrow's on the run
Live today, right now, 'cause there ain't no other one
There ain't no other one

As we float along another short day passes
Forgot my words, forgot the kitchen sink
You never even know, when life's sprung a leak
Time ain't no one's friend so watch behind you
She'll chase you down and kick you in the face
You never even know, when things are about to change
Track Name: Hallelujah
Waiting on a lifeline
Wishin', hopin', prayin' I'll see a sign
But I don't know if I'll find
The strength to make it through another time

I'm singin' Hallelujah
Hallelujah

You been burnin' bridges
While I'm burying myself, my soul alive
You been catchin' lightning
Trying hard to then drown out the light

I'm singin' Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Come on baby, let's go ride again
Through those lonely streets just as the night is closin' in
Yeah I've seen my share of broken hearts and broken limbs
Always singin' Hallelujah

I'm singin' Hallelujah
Hallelujah

I'm singin' Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Come on baby, let's go ride again
Through those lonely streets just as the night is closin' in
Yeah I've seen my share of broken hearts and broken limbs
Always singin' Hallelujah
Track Name: Right Now
Well I know right now
I'm gonna be with you
I'm gonna be with you for the rest of the night my dear
And I feel so good when you hold my hand
I'm gonna be with you for the rest of life my lover

Now the moon and the stars are shining
Gonna wait 'til the morning light
Gotta know when the moment is right

Yeah I need you tonight
With those stars a shinin' bright
When the moonlight hit your eyes
Hold you close and come alive
I need you now
Right here, right now

Well I know right now
I'm gonna be with you
I'm gonne be with you right now for all my years
And I know right now
I'm gonna stay with you
I'm gonna stay with you, whoa

Now the moon and the stars are shining
Gonna wait 'til the morning light
Gotta know when the moment is right

Yeah I need you tonight
With those stars a shinin' bright
When the moonlight hit your eyes
Hold you close and come alive
I need you now
Right here, right now

Well I know right now
Do wanna spend tonight alone
Down at the Railway Club, it's home to everyone
And I know right now
We're gonna sing and dance 'til dawn
And when the sun, it shines, ain't alone anymore

Now the moon and the stars are shining
Gonna wait 'til the morning light
Gotta know when the moment is right

Yeah I need you tonight
With those stars a shinin' bright
When the moonlight hit your eyes
Hold you close and come alive
I need you now
Right here, right now
Track Name: My Brother
Walk under the trees and now the leaves are turning brown
And I don't know if there's a job left in this god-foresaken town
But I've been here all my life, working hard and paid the price
For a love whose time was up
I first noticed things a changin' back in 1998
There were labour strikes and pool hall fights and riots in the street
But we stood there real tall, picket lines we faced 'em all
On those wicked winter days

Stand by me, we'll win the fight
Got each other, got this life
Oh we've got this life

Walk with me my brother
Don't you feel the same?
It seems to me we both are free
And want better than yesterday

Our power thinned, the cops moved in, they put us on the news
And this town has got more mill workers than it could ever use
'Cause they burned it to the ground, in the night without a sound
Was my home away from home
Track Name: Sing To Me
Saw it coming miles away
The passion fading fast
Love was now a chore to me
Never first on my mind always last

My conscience came and told me,
"Son, you need to choose your way
Love is not for faint of heart
Don't lead her astray."

Take me back again
Where smiles spoke louder than words ever did
Sing to me my friend
If love isn't lasting then this is the end

Days and nights have been and gone
Time has held its own
Looking back on love that was
Those days and nights live on

Take me back again
Where smiles spoke louder than words ever did
Sing to me my friend
If love isn't lasting then this is the end
Track Name: Lonely Road
I've been the hand that's held up kings
I've been the saint who's let 'em fall
Yeah I recall
I've been betrayed, and done the same
I've wrested fate and lost it all
I've seen that fall
I've been around and I've been knocked down
Try to walk the line, but I want it all
Drop every wall
I want it all

Something inside is gonna make you wonder
What the hell you're doing here
You gotta kick to keep from going under
Lord it's a lonesome kind of fear

That I'll never say
What I'll always know
And disappoint you when you're low
These things that I have seen
These places I'll go
They're gonna lead down a lonely road

I've sworn to lies and I've touched the sky
When all that's left is ash and bone
I go on alone
I've been afraid, been lost for days
Without the strength to carry on
But knew I had it all along
I've settled scores, locked open doors
Try to place the time but I want it all
Drown out the call

Something inside is gonna make you wonder
What the hell you're doing here
You gotta kick to keep from going under
Lord it's a lonesome kind of fear

That I'll never say
What I'll always know
And disappoint you when you're low
These things that I have seen
These places I'll go
They're gonna lead down a lonely road
Track Name: Life Is Now
Been up and down this coast so many times
Just as many as you need to know
That when you feel that wind against your skin
A little part of you has found a home
Whoa
I ain't chasing after anything
Spent so long wanting something else
No where to run to, no where to hide
You'll know where to find me, I'm coming home

But still I awake, haunted by those dreams
Haven't slept in weeks, the way I used to

What's a king without his crown?
You gotta wonder why I ain't sleeping when the sun goes down
Girl, I'm coming home
Please wait, I won't be late
'Cause baby, this life is now
Living this life right now

Feeling empty but I don't know why
Win the game, but losing time
Our story was written with words in the sand
Front row tickets for this traveling band
This is where a little faith comes in
You gotta believe you're making the most
If we don't have love, what the hell do we have?
It's just you and me, we're heading home
