Rollin' Stoned
All right yeah

Sippin' down shoutin' 'bout, yeah we used to shake it out
Those days, now I remember, when anything was all right
Someone had my video blastin' through the radio
Neighbors screamin' out "what the hell's going on here"

We were already gone, with a whole lot to go
When the police showed I told 'em "kiss my ass"
So young, livin' to die, and I was on my own
Two wrongs making a right, I was rollin' stoned

Rich is building houses, Gary's doing hard time
Jamie's in the desert and Brently's bought a gun
I saw an old photograph, all that I could do was laugh
And scratch my head in wonder
Where did all the days go?

We were already gone with nowhere to go oh no
I was singing my songs with a heart and soul
So young, I was livin' to die, I was rollin' stoned
Two wrongs making a right, I was rollin' stoned
It's a wonder I'm alive
Can't believe I ever made it through that ride
Rockin' all over the night, I was rollin' stoned, yeah yeah

So young, livin' to die, I was rollin' stoned
Two wrongs making a right, I was rollin' stoned, yeah
Damn good to be alive, wonder how I ever managed to survive
Rockin' all over the night, I was rollin' stoned
Stoned, stoned, stoned, yeah

Sippin' down, shoutin' 'bout
Yeah we used to shake it out

Rich is building houses, Gary's doing hard time
Brently bought a gun
Where did all the days go
Rollin' stoned, I was rollin' stoned
 
 
Ain't No Shame
Ain't no line, ain't no lyin' to love
Ain't no crime, Lord there ain't no cryin' to love
Yeah to love
Well you say your sick and tired of being lonely
And you say you've had enough of sympathy
And you find there's no one there to share your midnights
Well that just ain't the way it ought to be
And it ain't no shame

Ain't no shame to be loved
And you better believe it, 'cause when you're there
There's nothing else you'd ever want to do

Ain't no shame to be loved, can't you hear me
Look inside your heart'll tell you true
All my love belongs to you

To walk the path, the path of life alone - so alone
A single light in an empty sky - so alone
When it seems there's no one there to lend a shoulder
And your nights are cold and filled with misery
Well it's time you took a look a little closer
'Cause that's just ain't the way it ought to be
No - ain't no shame

Well you say you're sick and tired of being lonely
And your nights are cold and filled with misery
Well it's time you took a look a little closer - a little closer
'Cause that's just ain't the way it ought to be
No - ain't no shame

Ain't no shame to be loved
And you'd better believe it cause when you're there
There's nothing else you'd ever want to do
Ain't no shame to be loved
All my love belongs to you
Aint no shame to be loved
Aint no shame to be loved
 
 
Silent Night
Every now and then I like to pick up the phone
And make a call down memory lane
Well how you been, well baby you could say I've been lonely too
I've been pickin' up the pieces ever since the day
I left you sleeping on the motel road
I heard you had two kids, got married, it was quite the show
You're my one stone true regret
As I'm lyin' alone in my bed

On this silent night
I say a little prayer for you on this silent night
I send this message through, I was wrong to run
Shoulda took a little time for life
'Cause loneliness is no repayment for sacrifice
I'm doin' time in paradise on this silent night

I remember how we touched, we were young in love
Didn't know what was wrong or right
We just stuck to each other like the earth sticks to the sun

You taught me how to laugh, I learned how to cry
It was easy as one, two, three
We were lucky and wild back then, just happy to be
Now I think about you with desire, and my heart's still full of fire
On this silent night

In my mind I see the wind blow through your hair
I have a photograph of you and I somewhere
Painting pictures of the life that we would share

I wear this badge of sorrow, but how was I to know
I found the truth comes easy when you live in the light
I guess it only goes to show
So you think I'm crazy 'cause I feel this way
Gonna pick myself up off the ground and I'll turn it around
On this silent night

I guess it's time to say good-bye, on this silent night
 
 
Saint Lorraine
Sometimes I wonder how I'm goin' to pay the rent
All I do is work my fingers to the bone
No time to rest, no doubt I think I'm a fool

I used to think I couldn't get out of this
Stuck in a race car out of control
Man I was doin' 'bout 105, then I met you
And then I blinked
Oh yeah taught me to think
I owe it all to you

My my rain
You got me singin' along to the radio
You nailed my brain
I call you Saint Lorraine

You put out the trash, cleaned up my living room
Took me to bed, now I'll never be the same
Brought out the man that must have been hidin'

Yeah there's two kinds of lovers
One that takes and one that gives
Sometimes I shudder thinkin' how I've been used
I found my rhythm, you'll never catch me singing no blues
Oh no
Sometimes I think 'bout how you caught me with a wink
I give it all to you

My my rain, you got me rockin' along
I'll never let you go
You took my pain
I call you Saint Lorraine
Yes I do, yes I do
Oh then you caught me with a wink
I'll never let you go
I, I, I, oh I'm rockin' all night long

Sometimes I wonder how I'm going to pay the rent
I used to think I'll never get out of this
And then I blinked and you took me out of that

Thank you very much Lorraine
You got me rockin' along
I'll never let you go
You took my pain
I call you Saint Lorraine
 
 
In the Tradition
Here I am hearin' the same old good advice
Surrounded by fools who could swear each heart loves twice
I can't pretend everything's good
Believe me I wish that I could

I can't fake a smile through the evenin'
I'll probably crack if the pain's too strong
Play a song for me
But it has to be
In the tradition of love gone wrong

I've noticed today I have one less friend to call
And no one to tell me it's all right as my world starts to fall
I'm doing the best that I can
And I've had all the help I can stand

I'm ready to crash, yes I am
But I'll hide it the best that I can
 
 
Freedom Song
Here am I, talkin' at the sky
Thinkin' 'bout it all
I sometimes wonder at the way my life has gone
"Hey boy you stop that runnin'"
I heard it from a friend just today
But as he spoke my heart was miles away

So get that old train rollin'
Come on Mista' engineer
Need a freedom song to call my own
Take me on away from here

Met a girl in California, she asked me if I would stay
And if I could for anyone, oh you know it babe
But soon I got that same ol' feelin'
And I tried to make some sense of it all
Well baby I've been movin' far too long

So get that old train rollin'
Honey wipe away your tears
Need a freedom song to call my own
Take me on away from here
Hearin' that whistle blowin'
Reminds me of the good ol' days
Back on the road where I belong again

Somethin' to live for, the freedom I need
Gotta keep the dream alive now
Gotta keep a piece of me

So get that old train rollin'
Head it on away from here
Back on the road where I belong
Honey wipe away your tears
Hearin' that ol' whistle blowin'
Reminds me of a brand new day
A freedom song for everyone
Back on the road to stay
 
 
Gone to the Dogs
I see the sun comin' yeah but I can't sleep
I swim against the tide until I'm drownin' in the deep end
Rushin' to the rhythm of a racin' heart
The more you get, the more you want
The more it takes to please you

I'm feelin' so alive
Only the truth to hide
Gone to the dogs, that's right
Gone to the dogs, that's what I say

Never had a lover keep a leash on me,
But keep that tail a-waggin 'till the next time I see ya
Dance under the moon 'til the mornin' light
Honey don't ya' fake me
Come on shake me baby, take me tonight
 
 
Wooden Jesus
Down the road in my car
A wooden Jesus on my dashboard
Go to work to stay alive
I'm just a sinner tryin' to survive
Yeah we commit all those deadly sins
But I don't worry 'cause I got my friend

I got my wooden Jesus in my car
He's always with me, never too far
Yeah my wooden Jesus forgives me
I'm a sinner that's why I believe
In my wooden Jesus

Wake up in the mornin' sun
On my dresser got another one
Say a prayer to start my day
Maybe the big man will show me the way
A money maker down in east L.A.
Stampin' 'em out, ten thousand a day

I got a wooden Jesus in my car
He's always with me, never too far
Yeah my wooden Jesus he's my friend
I've been a lion layin' down with the lamb

I got my friend, got my soul
Why he forgives me, God only knows
'Cause he's a wooden Jesus
Wooden Jesus yeah, wooden Jesus, oh yeah

Oh Lordy take me on away from here
Take me down the road to salvation
Help me Jesus, try to find my way
Send me a revelation

I gotta wooden Jesus in my car
Got him stittin' on my dashboard
Wooden Jesus shows the way
He keeps me ready for that judgement day
He's my wooden Jesus forgivin' me

I need a savior, so I try to believe
In my wooden Jesus doesn't mind
He always loves me
He's my kind of wooden Jesus
Wooden Jesus yeah, wooden Jesus

Ten thousand, maybe more
Wrapped with string on a cheap old board
Cast iron believe me
$5.95 will buy your reprieve

Wooden Jesus yeah
He's my friend
Show me the way
Keep me ready for that judgement day
Wooden Jesus
 
 
Sister Mary
Let the world be still tonight
Let the fire be the only light
Draw the curtain, pull down the shade
In easy arms we'll lay

So come on lady now close your eyes
Let the madness pass on by
Loosen up your golden hair
Stroke away my every care

There's no comfort in strangers
That I can't find right here

Layin' down in the arms of Sister Mary
Will her lovin' ever last?
Layin' down in the arms of Mother Mary
Let the world drift past

For a moment a perfect love
Pure and silent like a star above
Never mind 'bout tomorrow's fears
Piece of mind is here
Outside's a world of strangers
So I will stay right here

Layin' down in the arms of Sister Mary
Will her lovin' ever last?
Layin' down in the arms of Mother Mary
Nothin' more to ask

Let her lovin' come to you
Let her lovin' come to you
Oh her love will come to you and bring you home, yeah

Outside's a world of strangeness
So I will stay right here
 
 
Loveless Age
When I was younger, trusted fate to pave the way
Love was so easy, just a game that children play
No time-out for changes, all my days are darkened dreams
Now there ain't nothin' and nothin's what it seems

You know heartache comes full circle yeah
Has the past returned again, again

I'm upside down
I don't understand you anymore
Is it somebody else I see walkin' through my door
No more lies on the table, no more pictures on the wall
Feel like I'm livin' in a loveless age

Night brings no comfort, a rider on the storm
Lookin' for reason in the face of destiny
'Cause faith has no meaning in a broken dream
Where there ain't no one, and no one's who they seem

You know heartache comes full circle
And the scars on the soul never fade

Feel like I'm livin' in a loveless age

I don't want you, what I need
Is the touch of a woman
Who won't try to make me bleed
Maybe I'm crazy, yeah baby that's me
No, no, no, no, no don't go draggin' me down
And then leave me to drown in this loveless age

Feel like I'm livin' in a loveless age
Feel like I'm livin'
In a loveless age, oh
Livin' in a loveless age, oh yeah
It's not that easy in a loveless age
No more, no more in a loveless age
 
 
Psychedelic Hurricane
I don't ever want to hurt you
That's just the way it is with me
And I don't care how long it takes you
To hold my hand, skip a stone, standin' naked by the sea
Tossin', turnin', spinnin', 'round, this world is full of tinsel town
My pocket full of change is all gone

Psychedelic hurricane
Clouds outside my window pane
Spinnin' 'round and 'round, paint the skies above you
Tossin', turnin', someone set me free
Like the sun shinin' on the sea

There's a place I want to take you
Where you can hover over me
Don't worry love, I won't forsake you
So dry those tears from your eyes, my love is all you need
Fallin', crawlin', drags me down
Don't know 'til you've hit the ground
Yesterday was here, but now it's gone

Psychedelic hurricane
Clouds outside my window pane
Spinnin' 'round and 'round, paint the skies above you
Tossin', turnin', someone set me free
Like the sun shinin' on the sea
Pour your rain on me

Let your love rain down on me
That's all I need to make it through the fire
That's all I need, pour your rain on me
I'm fallin', yes I'm crawlin'
Just like a demon that I can't let go
I feel eclectic, this love's electric
Just like a diamond, as black as coal

Psychedelic hurricane
Clouds outside my window pane
Spinnin' 'round and 'round, paint the skies above you
Tossin', turnin', someone set me free
Like the sun shinin' on the sea
Pour your rain on me
 
 
Hey Mister
Lookin' back there's nothin' left to say
Wishin' that this life would slowly fade away
Dreams behind these eyes, no one could know, oh oh
But wake to find there's nowhere left to go

Hey Mister can't you see I'm feelin' so alone?
But then I don't think you'd understand
All I ever wanted was to live life unafraid
All I ever needed was some love

Stories told on weary cardboard signs
Eulogize the lives now left behind
Faces worn and etched with all despair
Passers by, they look but seldom care

Hey Mister can't you see the ring around the moon?
Maybe it's the water in my eyes
All I ever wanted was to live life unashamed
All I ever needed was some love

Livin' on the edge of sanity
Wonderin' how this ever came to be
Feelin' so unnecessary, gotta find some sanctuary
Hey buddy can you spare a dime?

Hey Mister can't you see I'm feelin' so abused?
But really, I don't think you'd understand
All I ever wanted was to live life, what I mean is
All I ever needed was someone
Hey Mister can't you see I'm just a man like you?
Who's tryin' hard to keep his dignity
Maybe if you could just walk a mile inside my shoes
You'd see that I just need a helping hand
Hey Mister please, hey Mister please, beggin' on my knees
Can anybody help me find my way?
