Track Name: On The Mississippi
On The Mississippi


Somewhere that wheel is turning
Wheel turning on a Riverboat
Somewhere that paddle wheel is turning
Somewhere on the Mississippi

She was winsome in the standing in the spring
Waiting ashore on her wedding day
Fell in love with a gambling man
Who gave up a chance to play

She will be waiting there in the fall
For love’s hand he will never play
He fell flat for a flush in hearts
Shot dead on his wedding day

But time ain’t healing a lover’s tears
He ain’t coming no matter what she prays
Caught in the flow of that ole river
Lover or losers the gambler pays

So if there flies by a caring angel
That lays rest a troubled heart
Pray a good man comes along
And let this river do its part
Pray the river does its part

Track Name: Feels Like Rain
FEEL LIKE RAIN



FEEL LIKE RAIN-FEEL LIKE RAIN
BRIGHT WHITE LIGHTENING AND ALL THE PAIN
FEEL LIKE RAIN- FEEL LIKE RAIN
HEAR THE THUNDER NOTHING GAINED

LOST IN WORRY CAUSE I DONE WRONG
PLEASE UNDERSTAND I AINT THAT STRONG
STOOD AT THE CROOSROAD SHOUDA TURNED RIGHT
NOW THERE AINT NO COMFORT FOR ME IN SIGHT

FEEL LIKE RAIN-FEEL LIKE RAIN
BRIGHT WHITE LIGHTENING AND ALL THE PAIN
FEEL LIKE RAIN- FEEL LIKE RAIN
HEAR THE THUNDER NOTHING GAINED

MY BACK IS HURTIN’ GOT SORES ON MY FEET
JUST A COLD ROAMING CAN’T FIND NO HEAT
I CAN’T FIND THE KEY TO OPEN THE DOOR
CAN’T TELL YOU WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR
CLOUDS AT THE CROOSROADS
SET ME OUT TO RUN
I KNOW THE STORM IS COMING
I’M HOPING FOR THE SUN

FEEL LIKE RAIN-FEEL LIKE RAIN
BRIGHT WHITE LIGHTENING AND ALL THE PAIN
FEEL LIKE RAIN- FEEL LIKE RAIN
HEAR THE THUNDER NOTHING GAINED

I WANNA GET UP I’M TIRED OF BEING DOWN
GOT NO WOMAN NONE WILL COME AROUND
I NEED TO SETTLE ON A LIGHTED WAY
SAVE THE CROOSROAD FOR ANOTHER DAY

Track Name: She Belongs To Me
She Belongs To Me

She hides herself in shadows/ walking by the sea
Watching all the lovers/ swapping souls for free
She is the dancer in the moon
And she belongs to me
She's deceptive in the light/ you want to make it right
She plays me for a fool/ but you would wouldn’t you
She rises from the sea/wild at heart and free
Has me dance the wayward fool/ but you would wouldn't you- wouldn't you
She spins and turns the tide/ a lie is like a song
I give her all my love/ and I know that it's all-wrong
She is the halo in the moon
And she belongs to me
The islands move the spirit/ love wills don’t fear it
Give away your heart/each soul will do its part
She will have all she wills/but you will love her still
She will play you for the fool/but you would wouldn't you
She hides herself in shadows/ walking by the sea
Watching all the lovers/ swapping souls for free
She is the singer in the moon
And she belongs to me

Track Name: Amy Lowe
AMY LOWE

When the sun came up this morning
I found myself in a situation (cash negation)
One that require a song or two
Because I can’t find a sane explanation
I heard you shouldn’t worry about tomorrow
Tomorrow will have worries enough ( true enough)
I’m standing here without a penny in my pocket
The bank took back all my stuff
Amy Lowe I been brought down low
I think they rigged the game
Amy Lowe I been brought down low
I had it once I’ll have it again
I don’t have a single answer
Hell I ain’t no politician (above suspicion)
All I know is now I’m a poor man
American’s dreams are only fiction
Amy Lowe I know I shouldn’t ask you
But you know my love didn’t change
Would you consider marrying me
A couple things I may need to rearrange
They can fake it when they can make it
They can do what -what they will do
The question really is do we take it
Because I don’t know what is true
Amy Lowe I just have to ask you
Does the free falling get in the way
Aint got no stock gave back the house
But will you love baby love me anyway

Track Name: Ain't It Hard
AIN’T IT HARD

Em
We stand on a road that we all start on
Small and needy like you’re the only one
I hope your momma loved you anyway
This is the world God made for you that day
And ain’t this a hard road/we running on
In a race that no one/ has ever won
When you were a child you had childish ways
I hope your momma taught you how to pray
You had hope for the future/ thought it would turn out well
You were told about heaven and your were told ‘bout hell
And ain’t this a hard road/we running on
In a race that no one/ has ever won
Then another one stepped into your life
Love stuck to some/ others misery and strife
You could be rich /or you could be poor
Kept on wishing that luck would walk thru your door
And ain’t this a hard road/we running on
In a race that no one/ has ever won
So your work yourself silly trying to get ahead
Suffer for the things that climb in your head
Some are defined by the work that they do
The devil tells you that you know what’s true
And ain’t this a hard road/we running on
In a race where no one/ has ever won
And ain’t this a hard road/we running on
In a race where no one/ has ever won
Lord ain’t this a hard road/we running on
In a race where no one/ has ever won

Track Name: Look In The Mirror
Gotta face yourself

No matter how far you travel/ no matter what road you take
Even gold will turn to dust/ no matter the choice you make

Part your hair in the middle/ part your hair to the left
You surly know what’s right/ try to do your best

(As long as you)- Look in the mirror

There ain't no one else
Look in the mirror
You have to face yourself
Realize that you are all you got
You’re a window looking out at the storm
Work to get a handle on this crazy world
You can do what ever you believe (stop)
Let your flag unfurl
No matter how far you travel/ no matter what road you take
Even gold will turn to dust/ do it well for heaven sake
Live life down the middle/ try to clean up your mess
You surly know what’s right/ try to do your best

(As long as you)- Look in the mirror
There ain't no one else
Look in the mirror
You have to face yourself
Realize that you are all you got

You can fool them with your answers
Lie when you misbehave
You think you got it covered

Track Name: Turning On A Dime
Clowns in the doorway
There are clowns in the doorway
The circus is not in town
I'm looking for a trapeze
To swing my way out and down

The Jester juggles woeful sins
And smiles winsomely
He knows but holds your secret
Harlequins are a mystery

I watched you do a pirouette
Turning on a dime

I'm left talking to myself
Barkers dare my reckless hand
Walking down the sad fairway
Looking for a place to land

Masked Dancers sing all my lies
Mocking my every try
The melody rises from
the calliope
I watched you do a pirouette
Turning on a dime

Covered my ears in vain protest
Memories I still maintained
They're loathsome and relentless
I’ve lost more than I have gained

The dancer said she loved me
Cries but make no sound
We are swinging ona trapeze
With no net to let us down
