    Workin' Man (Nowhere to Go)

    Sittin' alone in the dark
    Wastin' my time in a park
    'Cause I've got nowhere to go
    Had me a job 'til the market fell out
    Tried hard to borrow but there was no help
    Now I've got nowhere to go
    I need a job for these two hands
    I'm a workin' man
    With nowhere to go

    One last look at my land
    Auctioneer with his gavel in hand
    And he says "it's got to go"
    Worked this piece all my life
    It broke my heart and it took my wife
    Now I've got nothing to show
    I need a job for these two hands
    I'm a workin' man
    With nowhere to go

    Wandered aimless in the city
    With my dirt workin' boots and my old straw hat in hand
    Singing a song by Woody Guthrie
    This land is your land but it ain't my land
    I'm a workin' man, with nowhere to go

    I was born to the sunrise
    Breaking back all day
    Now I've got something to say
    I am broke, but not broken
    And I am not alone
    'cause there's a lot of folks
    With nowhere to go

    Are they ever gonna understand?
    You can't leave a workin' man
    With nowhere to go
    Are they ever gonna understand?
    You can't leave a workin' man
    With nowhere to go
    Nowhere to go
    Nowhere to go

    I've Been Lookin

    I've been lookin' for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
    I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping 'em
    I'm just looking for a love to stand the test of time
    I've been lookin' for someone to be all mine

    I had too much lonely
    I need a one and only
    Someone I can care about and call my own
    Faithful to tradition
    Without an intermission
    We'll still be together when the kids are grown

    I've been lookin for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
    I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping 'em
    I'm just lookin' for a love to stand the test of time
    I've been looking for someone to be all mine

    I've been lookin' for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
    I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping 'em
    I' m just lookin' for a love to stand the test of time
    I've been looking for someone to be all mine
    I've been looking for someone to be all mine
    I've been looking for someone to be all...

    I've been lookin' for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
    I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping 'em
    I've been lookin' for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
    I'm not talking about someone who's scared of promises or keeping 'em

    Soldier of Love

    I am loyal on those who care
    Who care about the fate of love
    I know there's many others just like me
    I know they too had enough
    Of these hearts doin' battle on the frontlines
    Love's got no heroes in these modern times
    What love needs is a defender
    Ohoh I am a soldier of love
    Wooh ohoh I am a soldier of love

    I've seen it in your eyes, you felt the heat
    There was a time when you believed
    Love is the only way to make it through
    Hardly another casualty
    From these hearts doin' battle on the frontlines
    Love's got no heroes in these modern times
    What love needs is a defender
    Ohoh I am a soldier of love

    Look at all these hearts doin' battle on the frontlines
    Love's got no heroes in these modern times
    What love needs is a defender
    Ohoh I am a soldier of love
    Wooh ohoh I am a soldier of love
    Ohoh I am a soldier of love

    I am a soldier of love
    I am a soldier
    I am a soldier of love
    I am a soldier
    I am a soldier of love
    I am a soldier
    I am a soldier of love

    Down That Road Tonight

    Seems like lately we're losin' touch
    Work to hard and worry too much
    I think it's time for me and you
    To get back to what we used to do
    We'd steal away on a Saturday night
    Meet in the field when the time was right
    Just us two and a starry sky
    Felt like paradise

    I said ooh baby goin' down that road tonight
    I said it's too crazy need to hold each other tight
    Thinkin' maybe the moon stills shines as bright
    Like it did back then, it'll shine again
    Down that road tonight

    Remember all the songs that we used to know
    Dancin' in the dark to the radio
    Lost in the rhythm, kickin' up some heat
    The memories are still so sweet
    Time's gone by but it's plain to see
    I still love you and you still love me
    Let's shake these troubles put 'em all aside
    C'mon we're gonna take that ride

    I said ooh baby goin' down that road tonight
    I said it's too crazy need to hold each other tight
    Thinkin' maybe the moon stills shines as bright
    Like it did back then, it'll shine again
    Down that road tonight
    Down that road

    Down that road

    Baby Blues

    She looked so proud and held her head up high
    And her eyes were softer than a summer sky
    And in the distance there were clouds
    Somebody made her cry

    And the salt of the tears she couldn't hide
    Told her broken hearts need time to mend
    Mostly thinkin' that this girl might need a friend
    But suddenly her eyes met mine, world went in a spin
    And I knew I'd never be the same again

    Baby blues oh baby blues
    All caught up in those baby blues
    I found heaven and my refuge
    Live and die for those baby blues
    Caught up in those baby blues

    Now I'm with those blue eyes everyday
    And even in the silence they have so much to say
    Talk to my heart, bring some sunshine and the rain
    Make me look at love a brand new way

    Baby blues oh baby blues
    All caught up in those baby blues
    I found heaven when I found you
    Live and die for those baby blues
    Caught up in those baby blues
    All wrapped up in those baby blues

    Oh baby baby oh baby blues
    All caught up in those baby blues
    I found heaven when I found you
    Live and die for those baby blues
    Caught up in those baby blues
    All wrapped up in those baby blues
    Baby blues
    Baby blues
    All caught up in those baby baby blues
    All wrapped up in those baby baby blues
    Baby blues

    Corduroy Road

    Sometimes you're up
    Sometimes you're down
    Sometimes fate can kick you around
    When it's winter up here
    It's summer down under
    Sometimes clear skies
    Sometimes thunder

    Life is a Corduroy Road
    Life is a Corduroy Road

    Well me and my honey
    And my 61 'vette now
    I had to sell everything else
    To get out of debt now
    I always dreamed about
    Cruisin' down Route 66 yeah
    Well I finally got to do it
    But there ain't much left now

    Life is a Corduroy Road
    Life is a Corduroy Road

    What's goin' on
    As you get a little older
    Feel a little bolder
    Got no time to lose
    Who wants to die
    With a quiver full of arrows
    Pull the string back now
    Let'em all loose, yeah

    Life is a Corduroy Road
    Life is a Corduroy Road
    Life is a Corduroy Road
    Life is a Corduroy Road
    That's right
    Look out now

    Johnny O

    Way down in the delta
    Where the days move slow
    There's a squeeze box player
    Name a Little Johnny O
    He's got a four piece band
    And they're playin' real tight
    Make the people go crazy
    Every saturday night
    Singing, Hey Johnny O
    Let's Fied-I-Ay
    On the ol' bayou
    Hey Johnny O
    Well play the Tennessee Waltz
    And the Zydeco

    They like their Chuck Berry records
    And some Fats Domino
    But the thing they like the most
    Is hearin' Little Johnny O
    Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
    Little Johnny O
    Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
    That's right Johnny

    Well the Natches girls
    They like to stroll around town
    When Johnny starts a playin'
    You see'em come unwound
    Well the boys in the corner
    All loosin' their minds
    Gonna make their move
    When Johnny gives the sigh

    Singing, Hey Johnny O
    Let's Fied-I-Ay
    On the ol' bayou
    Hey Johnny O
    Play the Tennessee Waltz
    And the Zydeco

    They like their old country records
    They're the mill for the soul
    But the thing they like the most
    Is hearin' Little Johnny O
    Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
    Little Johnny O
    Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
    Play it, Hey Johnny
    That's the ticket
    (Let's get down girl)

    Way down in the delta
    Where the big blue flows
    There's a one little secret
    That everybody knows
    If you just can't sleep
    And you're feelin' down
    There's an all-night cure
    Outside of town

    And it's Hey Johnny O
    Let's Fied-I-Ay
    On the ol' bayou
    Hey Johhny O
    Play the Tennessee Waltz
    And the Zydeco

    They like all those songs
    On the radio
    But the thing they like the most
    Is hearin' Little Johnny O
    Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
    Little Johnny O
    Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
    Little Johnny O
    Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh
    Little Johnny O
    Playin' Fiedle-I-Oh hey
    Hey Johnny
    What is Fiedle-I-Oh?

    Thunder and Lightnin'

    I remember our first night together
    It was rainin' cats and dogs, when we made love
    Made the most of all that stormy weather
    That's what this ol' night reminds me of

    Thunder and lightning
    Nothing like a storm
    Cozy up beside me honey
    And let me keep you warm
    Nothing more invitin'
    Then a good one comin' down
    Born two rainy day lovers
    Who love to hear the sound
    Of thunder and lightning

    The rhythm of the rain outside the window
    Always brings a sparkle to your eye
    It's music to my ears each time the wind blows
    We know how to spend a stormy night

    Chorus

    No, we don't need no sunny day-ay
    Just turn the lights down low
    And let it rain

    Chorus

    A Lot Like Me

    High up on a rocky ledge
    Holdin' all she's got
    It ain't much except
    The shattered dream and broken heart

    He used her up
    Made her old before her time
    She's gonna take that final step
    And leave her pain behind

    All the sins that men commit before they're done
    Her lover had one lying silver tongue
    She won't speak his name, it's too much to bear
    But I saw his face as he left her there

    Wooh oh oh oh
    Sure looked a lot like me (sure looked a lot like me)
    Wooh ahahah wooh
    Sure looked a lot like me

    He was just a boy barely seventeen
    Feelin' drunk and talkin' tough
    But he wasn't really mean
    Bumped into this sidewinder
    Should have backed way
    Gave him some lip
    Turned out they were
    The last words he would say

    All the sins that men commit before they're done
    His killer backed into one smokin' silver gun
    No one asked his name, nobody cared
    But I saw his face as the blue smoke cleared

    Chorus

    Devil came and said, sinner finally you are mine
    But pardon me Mr. Devil but I think I need more time
    I've got a lot of mendin' up in life to do
    The devil said, you should have thought of that
    Before I came for you

    Take this rope and wind it once for every lie
    Once for every thoughtless act
    And twice for tears they cried
    Walk fifty miles naked in the desert sun
    Praying for the souls that you have ruined, one by one

    No one knew his name, nobody cared
    But I saw his face as he was hangin' there

    Chorus

    Chorus

    He sure looked a lot like me

    Living Without You

    I can hear that old clock ticking passing time up on the wall
    I can hear the faucet dripping in the kitchen down the hall
    I just sit here wishing there was something I could say
    To the one that I keep missing every night and every day

    There's things you learn to live with now that's all I'll ever do
    But I'll never get used to living without you

    Now I got used to tenderness, we would hold each other tight
    And I got used to happiness we'd make love day and night
    And I'll get used to mornings eating breakfast all alone
    And sitting in the evenings when there's no one else at home

    There's things you learn to live with now that's all I'll ever do
    But I'll never get used to living without you

    Without you the sun still rises, without you the rivers run
    I thought by now that I'd be realizing what's done is done
    I accept the notion that there's things we can't control
    The changing of the seasons or the fact we're growing old
    I know I'm the reason that you had to go away
    I will keep believing that's the price I have to pay

    There's things you learn to live with now that's all I'll ever do
    But I'll never get used to living without you
    Oh there's things you learn to live with now that's all I'll ever do
    But I'll never get used to living without you
    Without you ??.. without you

    Brass Sky

    I gotta bent up truck, gotta fix-it-up
    So I set it on the backyard lawn
    Put the radio loud in the window
    I tuned it into rock
    Now I'm patiently waitin' on music
    But the DJ rambled and sang
    And it was blowin' in a brass sky
    But it won't rain

    A bright-eyed woman on the hour
    Brings a glass of tea
    And I can tell she's as pretty as a flower
    When she comes to me
    She winds away the water
    From my eyes and soothes my brain
    And it was blowin' in a brass sky
    But it won't rain

    And it won't rain for tryin'
    And it won't rain for beans
    There's fear in the sky
    A big storm is what it means

    Waitin' out the weather
    By workin' on the truck
    We get to hang out together
    Can't believe this luck

    Glass is fine by the hour
    But don't match with mine
    It got wrecked playin' sailor in the shower
    Last Christmas time
    The song's written in another language
    But the weather forecast is plain
    It was blowin' in a brass sky
    But it won't rain

    And it won't rain for tryin'
    And it won't rain for beans
    Well it's a bad day for flyin'
    But they won't fly with me
    Starin' at the boats and planes
    That are stayin' on the ground
    Another won't leave it's hidin'
    Til the wind turns 'round

    A bright-eyed woman in the kitchen
    Cooks up a kiss of death
    Boilin' up mango, crab and coconut
    And includin' cinnamon bread
    But she drops the pan and says
    Paranoia is out and breeds like a runaway train
    And it was blowin' in a brass sky
    But it won't rain

    And it won't rain for tryin'
    And it won't rain for beans
    Well it's a bad day for flyin'
    They won't fly with me, no
    Starin' at the boats and planes
    Stayin' on the ground
    Another won't leave it's hidin'
    Til the wind turns 'round

    I've Been Lookin' (Reprise)

    I've been lookin' for a love, someone to hold as I lay sleeping
