Verse 1 All night long, I’ll dance with you: x2 and if I can’t dance all night I sing the blues Verse 2 Take my hand, come dance with me: x2 We’ll do the twist, shake your hips and bend your knees Verse 3 All night long, I’ll dance with you: x2 and if I can’t dance all night I sing the blues

Verse 1 Well how’d you walk around in those high heels baby? It sure looks hard to sustain And how’d you keep a friendship with two faced ladies? It looks so hard to maintain Verse 2 Do you think they talk about you when you’ve left the room? I wonder what do they say? But your Mamma always said things are better left unsaid It’s always been the same Chorus Don’t think about it girl just be yourself You know that’s all you can do I’ll tell you the words a wise man once said All you can be is you........all you can be is you Verse 3 Do you have to paint your face on when you go out to war? couldn’t you just go unarmed? do you really think you need it to get yourself a boy? couldn’t you just use your charms? Chorus Verse 4 Well how’d you walk around in those high heels baby? It don’t look good for your health Do you do it for the boys or to compete with the ladies? or is it just for yourself Chorus

Possessions 04:23
Verse 1 Well you’ve got all the things you wanted to have since you were small But now you realise they don’t mean nothing at all Verse 2 Well you took without a care for anything, or anyone but you But the time has come to look within yourself and seek the truth Bridge Don’t you know the things you own End up owning you Verse 3 Your head’s in pieces you don’t know whether Your coming or going and when this will end You’ll never find peace if you just want more The shadow of greed is cast on your soul x2

Verse 1 Well my mind it feels so empty When I ain’t there with you Read a book from start to finish In the time it takes to sing these blues Chorus Cos I know you’ll be waiting In anticipation of how I feel way down in the corner of my soul As the world keeps turning We’ll never stop learning and review when my baby and I get time alone, all alone Verse 2 Take a walk right by the river on a beautiful summers day and it doesn’t feel like nothing will ever get in our way Chorus Verse 3 We drift into a slumber With the sunlight on our face And my Highland Queen beside me Come feel my warm embrace Chorus

Devil Woman 02:26
Verse 1 A devil woman with a stone cold soul, swiped my cash and left me bald and broke ohhhhh lord, she left me all alone I had to fight the urge not to give the devil woman a call Verse 2 she packed her bags on the Saturday morn, come afternoon you know my baby was gone ohhhhh lord, you know my baby was gone and now my mind is rambling and I’m so sad and forlorn. Verse 3 my baby put me in the state I’m in, singing the blues and drinking whiskey and gin all night long, I’m drinking Hendricks gin you know the devil woman put me in the state I’m in

Verse 1 Go ahead Mr Business Man, you still got 20 years left on your stretch: x2 Well that’s 240 long hard months and you still got 239 of em left Verse 2 Head down Mr Business Man, is the only way to survive this time: x2 Ask no questions keep your opinions to yourself and don’t step out of line Verse 3 Tell me Mr Business Man, how someone like you can sleep at night: x2 Eyes so heavy with a belly full of sin and pockets full of lies

Early 20s 03:35
Verse 1 Well you've got what I want A loose set of morels and a bottle of wine Cloaked in sass and looking mighty fine You laddered your tights babe but that’s alright That’s alright, that’s alright with me Verse 2 Well you've got what I need A mountain of curls an alluring smile Legs that go on for miles and miles Meet me in the ally I’ll be back in a while Back in a while, back in a while you’ll see Verse 3 Well you've got what I want A loose set of morels she just wants to get high Cloaked in sass and looking mighty fine You laddered your tights babe but that’s alright That’s alright, that’s alright with me

Darkest Day 03:07
Verse 1 Come sit by me my friend, I think I’ve got something to say I miss you when you’re away, I’m sorry to see you today Verse 2 This is our darkest day, some things shouldn't be this way Somethings that life takes away, they just can’t be replaced Verse 3 The woman I love is away, I could not make her stay Just cos I’m always away, sometime you can’t get your way Verse 2 I guess what I’m trying to say, is everyone in my life Really means something to me, you’ve got to know before I leave Verse 3 This is our darkest day, some things remain the same I’ll be here waiting for you, I got nothing better to do
9.
Verse 1 Well I’m down again my friend Right back on those streets again Where the stones shine for a quarter mile Looking back I see my baby smile Chorus Cos she’s calling me Right back to where I used to be And she’s calling me And I’m hanging on by the skin of my teeth So take me away, set me free, worried blues, let me be Verse 2 Well it rained for 40 days and 40 nights Earth’s closest start was nowhere in sight And the night was so black it would twist your mind Every second passed was wasted time Chorus Verse 3 Well I’m down again my friend Right back on those streets again Where the stones shine for a quarter mile Looking back I see my baby smile Chorus

Maybe Baby 03:11
Verse 1 A taste of heaven is a stone’s throw away Then you call saying things ain’t OK A girl like you is slowly twisting my mind I kind of feel you’re wasting my time Verse 2 You’re up and down like a ship on a sea Can’t you see what it’s doing to me All I ask is that you’re more down the line I kind of feel you’re wasting my time Maybe baby that ain’t alright Chorus Maybe I don’t like your style Maybe it’s been a while Baby its plain to see That a woman like you ain’t good for a man like me Verse 3 You talk the talk but the eyes never lie Don’t you know that I ain’t that guy The way you’re acting should be a crime I kind of feel you’re wasting my time Maybe baby that ain’t alright Chorus

Verse 1 Lonely is the road, lonely is the road tonight x2 Verse 2 Don’t you know I love you, I love you every day Don’t you know I need you, I need you more each day Verse 3 Lonely is the road, lonely is the road tonight x2 Verse 4 Don’t you know I love you, I love you every day Don’t you know I need you, I need you more each day Bridge But you’re so out of sight, you’re so out of sight And lonely is the road tonight x2

Verse 1 I Guess you Know, how the story goes There’s no looking back, when all you can do is try Verse 2 I see people doing, just what they want to do and I think that’s right cos some of us don’t even try Verse 3 try to live life, try to be better friends try to look up, try not to give in Verse 4 cos people are changing, maybe the world needs rearranging but we've got time and I guess that’s all you need Verse 5 I Guess you Know, how the story goes There’s no looking back, when all you can do is try Verse 6 I see people doing, just what they want to do and I think that’s right cos some of us don’t even try
