Track Name: Coupe DeVille
slip out the back if i need to leave
keep the train on track keep a steady speed
catch the farthest state from this white washed hell
cross this country on my feet not in no

coupe deville
ain't got no
coupe deville
gimme a ride home

leave out the facts if really need be
please watch my things while i'm living a dream
see the bright city lights with the tubes so bright
cross this city on my feet not in no

coupe deville
ain't got no
coupe deville
gimme a ride home
Track Name: Bargains
its a long hard road
for the travelling soul
on the nine, i travel alone

roadfire burning red
two more weeks i will be dead
on a line, i travel alone

and when the day comes
where my head finally rests
how many bargains will be left
how many bargains

pencil scratches lead
get these thoughts out of my head
oh the time, keeps me alone

got no shelter got no bed
got no roof over my head

and when the day comes
where my head finally rests
how many bargains will be left
how many bargains
Track Name: Things Were Rough
things were rough when we were young
too many kids with shooting guns
and after school we'd hit the bottle
we hit the dirt under the rug
for someone else to clean it up
it wasn't really all that much
we didn't know much better of it
we hid the dirt under the rug

and now its time, time
to get your hands dirty
for lyin, lyin
you almost make me worry
that i should have been
easier on you

the path we took was cross and crooked
heads to big nowhere to put it
but after mass i tore your shirt off
we hid the dirt under the rug
but no one ever cleaned it up
i guess it was all to much
we should've both known better of it
but we hid the dirt under the rug

and now its time, time
to get your hands dirty
for lyin, lyin
you almost make me worry
that i should have been
easier on you
Track Name: Old Beater
let's take this beater for one more ride
she's gotta see the sunset
keep on drivin' till yah hit the main line
nah she ain't dead yet

going 60 in a 95'
you're stuck in second gear
im sure if these wheels could talk
they'd talk about the better years

i'm taking a long look back now
on all the screeches and the treadmarks
kept on drivin am radio too loud
we were just getting started

going 60 in a 95'
you're stuck in second gear
im sure if these wheels could talk
they'd talk about the better years
Track Name: Flow Like A River
don't go knockin'
at my window
when you got no more stones to throw
i'll be ramblin
and i'll be runnin'
and i don't take no friends on the road

so bring your bible
but it ain't school time
bring you're whistling harp and bring your rope
throw it tree high
tie it real tight, you can sing as you swing oak to oak

so ditch your compass and your food and your bad attitude
they won't get you there no how
let me flow like a river running down

so leave your family
for your one horse town, you might feel like a neon boy again
ride that pony, through the kidsmoke
but your pistol fires at you in the end

and there's a war about to brew and it's a war inside of you
you must persevere somehow
let me flow like a river running down

so ditch your compass and your food and your bad attitude
they won't get you there no how
let me flow like a river running down
Track Name: Oxford Blue
there's a wind thats a blowin'
through the bandshell parking lot
some kids are a wailin'
but no one seems to watch
and they all wear oxford blue
while they sing their bible songs
the cotton scruffs their skin
their shirts they hang to long
down the road, hundred miles from you
will anyone ever see me the way i want them too

singin' oxford blue, don't let it get to you

i'm no rugrat i'm a ruffian
with a guitar in my hands
callous on my finger, i'm an ordinary man
thats the essence of what drives me
all around the world
ill ride in an old beater
singin' what i see
theres too many men
chasing what ain't real
i always wonder, how do they really feel?

singin' oxford blue, don't let it get to you
Track Name: On The Road
the patriarch, the queen
these are all things i have seen
on tv screens and in printed press
i see them inside me

but i have learned more
than i could ever know
not on tv screens or in printed press
but my life
on the road

the poor, and the keen
these are not things i believe
that man's worth as much as he's heard
about the one's he needs

and i will still grow
with an everlasting hope
that man's worth as much as he deserves
his life
on the road
