Roustabouts, Roughnecks, and Dinosaur Bones - Feldman Roustabouts, roughnecks, and dinosaur bones Out to the rigs in the buffalo’s home Two barrels a day keeps the banker away Then it’s down to Juanita’s she got something to say Look away look away to the prairie so green Look away look away so serene There’s an old mound of ground with bones made of stone Roustabouts, roughnecks, and dinosaur bones A horse and a gun and a one room school house Out ‘neath the tree where the Wind River rounds She still sits today the way she did then If you’re lucky you’ll hear her voice over the wind Look away look away to the prairie so green Look away look away so serene There’s an old mound of ground with bones made of stone Roustabouts, roughnecks, and dinosaur bones She speaks of the bison, of the oil, the Sioux Of the cowboys and mammoths that wandered here too Of the people who left their marks on the wall She dreams that one day they’ll return from it all Look away look away to the prairie so green Look away look away so serene There’s an old mound of ground with bones made of stone Roustabouts, roughnecks, and dinosaur bones

Don’t Get Me Thinking About the Blues – Feldman And I’ve been thinking about going home I’ve been on the road so long And I’ve been thinking about the place I’d see But mostly thinking about you and me And I’ve been thinking about it’s time to make amends Maybe we should just be friends I know you’re tired and a little angry But when you’re thinking please don’t hate me Don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking about the blues A woman like you don’t need no man to hold her back Poor boys try but they miss this fact My god you’re gorgeous and I never saw your face One blink and you were gone without a trace Don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking about the blues Don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking about the blues Don’t want to walk right on by you Don’t want to hear you think of me as your past Just raise your glass, leave your light on I’m coming home this time if you think it will last Don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking about the blues Don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking about the blues Don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking, don’t get me thinking about the blues

Mountain Wife - Feldman When we come home from kingdom come I can only push so far Tennessee is as far away from home As this tiny hilltop bazaar Sit me down on a rock high above the clouds Far from the city far from the crowds Purple steeples peaking up at the Milky Way I’ve come here humbly to accept my pay As close to the heaven’s as I can be The face of an angel appears to me The hours roll on by, there’s only you Leaving is like the waves crashing blue When we come home from kingdom come I can only push so far Tennessee is as far away from home As this tiny hilltop bazaar How long did we talk, I cannot recall Oceans are the valleys, hills are the walls, I hear an eagle cry as he starts is race How did I find you in this forsaken place When we come home from kingdom come I can only push so far Tennessee is as far away from home As this tiny hilltop bazaar A million miles away days feel like dreams I wander through this subway as it bubbles like a stream Among these foreign sounds I return to life But each I dream about my mountain wife When we come home from kingdom come I can only push so far Tennessee is as far away from home As this tiny hilltop bazaar A million miles away days feel like dreams I wander through this subway as it bubbles like a stream Among these foreign sounds I return to life But each I dream about my mountain wife And each I dream about my mountain wife And each I dream about my mountain wife And each I dream about my mountain wife And each I dream about my mountain wife

End of the Road - Feldman Take my hand and take me to a world I want to see Take my soul and make into the man I want to be “I am told” he tuned and said to me “There’s a difference between truth and honesty” I am just a fly on your wall yet you want me to stay here with you “Change your shirt, come your hair back and polish your shoes” Mind your words, is this for me or is it for you I am here, it’s now, it’s time to choose I forgot what I was after some say it’s the journey I believe it’s so When you’re out of destinations some call it the end of the road Is this what artists feel when they see a Van Gogh Light reflecting from the after glow I like your smile, let me take you to the Promised Land [Alternate ending she smelled the coffee, walked in here as if planned He left his chair, walked to the bar I saw him touch her hand I like your smile, let me take you to the Promised Land]
5.
Sunshine and Moonshine - Feldman Run away to some Mississippi town Thought I saw Elvis he’s pushing 80 now We’ll find work here, my uncle said Ain’t no drilling, got to keep my baby fed Smell of oil still rides the wind No oysters offered at the Seaside Inn It’s not my fault, I need the pay When the company calls, we go to work that day Her tears are made of sunshine Her love goes down like moonshine Still waters roll over me Let my body drift out to sea In a big empty house you sit alone She’s gone with the kids it’s no longer a home Was it worth the price you had to pay For a mansion on the hill with weekend stays Boarded up schools, rust where water flowed Dust covers the corner drugs empty rows Would love to change my life and do what’s right Will “right” put food on my table tonight You have your jacket and your tie the costume of a bureaucrat I fix your car wearing dungarees You’ve been to Paris, I’ve been to Lorton, I’ve walked your dogs while you’ve dined with kings But have you been, from sea to shining sea Her tears are made of sunshine Her love goes down like moonshine Still waters roll over me Let my body drift out to sea Her tears are made of sunshine Her love goes down like moonshine Still waters roll over me Let my body drift out to sea Let my body drift out to sea Let my body drift out to sea Let my body drift out to sea Let my body drift out to sea Let my body drift out to sea

Another Day 05:14
Another Day - Ken Feldman Turn off the radio, forget the paper Your computer, take it off line Turn off the television Come sit closer, spend some time All I want to do is be with you All I need is someone to see me through Another day this year I hear all these people Speak of important things in their lives Like the latest committee hearing Or the wars that have revived All I want is you to come home All I need to know is your safe and warm Another day this year Cracks in the canopy Let the stars shine on my face So many people care Until the next flood, has taken place All I want is my homestead All I need is a somewhere to lay my head Another day this year I see all these people Do important things with their lives Young girl with a bandana To hide her head, her mamma cries All I want to do is to call home All I need is to hear is your voice on the phone Another day this year

Letter in My Pocket - Feldman Hey there my old friend It’s good to see you again It’s been so long Tell me, where’ve you been goin’ I got a letter in my pocket It says that I’m not the only one Can I sit down with you Spot me a drink or two If you buy a round I’ll get you when I’m off the ground I got a letter in my pocket It says that I’m not the only one Can I catch I ride with you My wheels are at the rendezvous Before we go I’d like to dust off all of my close I got a letter in my pocket It says that I’m not the only one Can I stay here with you Just till the night is threw I’ll sleep on your floor She changed on the locks on my door I got a letter in my pocket It says that I’m not the only one I didn’t treat her right So she went and found someone to hold her tight So you see that I’m down on my luck Old buddy can you loan me a buck I’m already dead I got no place to lay my head I got a letter in my pocket It says that I’m not the only one I’m already dead I got no place to lay my head I got a letter in my pocket It says that I’m not the only one Hey there my old friend Hey there my old friend Hey man, you got a minute

No Crime 05:22
No Crime - Feldman More is what you always say you want Room to grow and a place to fly Stand in the shadow of the rainbow Dance with the Cheyenne in the open sky Now you’ve gone east to follow your degree And I hate the day that you left me Snow comes early to the peaks these days From the top I can see you driving towards the sun You’ve dropped you bags and shed your roots Run off to find the life you’ve won No peace in this world you leave behind As much as I cry there is no crime Show me how to live anyway you please From the North, the South, and the West of these hills I can’t watch the sun rise anymore in the East There’s a mean old world for you goodwill Is your new life all that you asked for I remember talking ‘bout staying here forever Thought I’d be the one to grow up And you’d wait for us to be together No peace in this world you leave behind As much as I cry there is no crime I left the door open for you last night Should a road you find lead you home And I’m in school again, I’m trying to right myself You’d be proud of how the kid has grown No peace in this world you leave behind As much as I cry there is no crime Show me how to live anyway you please From the North, the South, and the West of these hills I can’t watch the sun rise anymore in the East There’s a mean old world for you goodwill No peace in this world you leave behind As much as I cry there is no crime

Mojo on My Solo – lyrics Feldman Walking ‘round this town Thinking of you You’ve been running around Baby it’s true I buy you lots of fine things I know you can’t refuse But a big diamond ring Gives me the blues I left my mojo on my solo What can I do I left my mojo on my solo Because of you You’re mama says you’re out When I call you on the phone So wander about Beats sleeping alone I find my way to Rhodeside Grill To pass the time away I pick up my guitar The crowd starts to sway I left my mojo on my solo What got to make do I left my mojo on my solo Because of you I heat up like a star The way you like me to I cradle my guitar The way I did you I left my mojo on my solo What can I do I left my mojo on my solo Because of you I left my mojo on my solo I can’t deny I left my mojo on my solo Baby goodbye I left my mojo on my solo I can’t deny I left my mojo on my solo Baby goodbye, Baby goodbye, Baby goodbye, Baby goodbye, Baby goodbye,

A Bit of Hurt – Jeff Blakeman Darkest days are behind me now The sun is shining bright Right now is the time in life When everything is just right Silver lining to every cloud Rainbows, pots of gold Times like these are when you say Please hold me don’t let go But life ahead can make no promises of easy, hard, or worse Never take small things for granted life always has a bit of hurt Precious moments kids grow up Right before your eyes Days seem like minutes It’s crazy how time flies Decades go the roads we travel Lead us in new ways Never planned for never ready And oh so many days But life ahead can make no promises of easy, hard, or worse Never take small things for granted life always has a bit of hurt Darkest days are behind me now The sun is shining bright Right now is the time in life When everything is just right Silver lining to every cloud Rainbows, pots of gold Times like these are when you say Please hold me don’t let go But life ahead can make no promises of easy, hard, or worse Never take small things for granted life always has a bit of hurt But life ahead can make no promises of easy, hard, or worse Never take small things for granted life always has a bit of hurt

Times A Stallin - Jeff Blakeman I've been sitting around here not smiling Thinking about been a long time a while in I want to gome home and see my family soon They don't let go the keep a hold on Having some faith will keep you going on I want to go home and sleep in my own room They tell me time can go too fast But here it only seems to last Time for thinking, learning from your past I heard it before that time keeps rolling But sitting around here I feel it stalling Makes a day seem much more like a year Please release me, let me be I've learned my lesson set me free I'm wasting time, there's not much more to say Open doors I've said I'm sorry You've got no more need to worry There's no way I'm coming back here to stay I heard it before that time keeps rolling But sitting around here I feel it stalling Makes a day seem much more like a year They let me go I'm on my way To step outside to a brand new day To try again to fit society Shouldn't be hard my family is waiting Things like this will keep you straight 'n' Pass that time of pain and misery credits

Basement Band - Feldman I ride with the sound of motorbikes running I bow to my left and to my right I try to keep the right questions coming And I dream of the sound of a back beat tonight And oh, I got to make it to the show Check the clock, grab my bags, turn out the lights, and hit the road I can’t talk now I hope you understand I’m playing in a basement band Eight to five grind is a million light years away From here today My lens keeps the light shining on the star This set sings with my sweat and my tears I make you look good no matter who you are Still I’m gone when I’m done with your veneer And oh, I got to make it to the show Check the clock, grab my bags, turn out the lights, and hit the road I can’t talk now I hope you understand I’m playing in a basement band Eight to five grind is a million light years away From here today What it’ll be pop, can I pour you a beer My pride left when I came back home Did I tell you toured Europe it’s been a few years But man you should have seen me when I was on my own And oh, I got to make it to the show Check the clock, grab my bags, turn out the lights, and hit the road I can’t talk now I hope you understand I’m playing in a basement band Eight to five grind is a million light years away From here today
13.
Walk On - Ken Feldman Won’t you take a walk with me We’ll lay our troubles down by the sea On the highway or off the Road Either way there’s a heavy load to bear If you leave your worries behind We can make it in half the time Leave now we can skip the tolls On the way we’ll hear that rock and roll It goes ah ah ahhh You call me on the phone While I’m sitting here all alone You knock upon my door While I’m hiding here on the floor You say it’s time to change But them my life I must rearrange Leave now you can skip the tolls On the way you’ll hear that rock and roll It goes ah ah ahhh Walk on or whatever either way you go Walk on or whatever tear me down so slow Walk on or whatever either way you go Walk on or whatever tear me down so slow

Jesus with My Angel - Feldman I saw Jesus with my angel Walking down Decatur Street I saw woman who once loved me I hang my head in defeat I thought I was wise, but did I know I thought I was right but I had no reason Go away! I scream in fear I can’t let go that moment of regret You followed me here from and other year I stand in line with those who drink to forget I pray to your picture I keep in my pocket You’re standing afar sun shining on you face I saw Jesus with my angel Walking down Decatur Street I saw Jesus with my angel Walking down Decatur Street I know a boy who became a man Beat and battered for his life he plead She was judge and jury when the trial began Man and wife my the verdict “I do” she said I see my face in the bottom of a glass Wink back at me as I throw it in the trash I see your eyes in the headlights that I pass Driving me back to door steps from past Don’t go, don’t stop, don’t give in Love is the way we wash away our sins Thank you for the days that you gave to me Thank you for the nights and the mornings too I lost your trust, that I can see I’m sorry for the time I took from you So now you’re out, with brand new friends And man with a beard, long hair, and smile I saw Jesus with my angel Walking down Decatur Street I saw woman who once loved me I hang my head in defeat I know a boy who became a man Beat and battered for his life he plead She was judge and jury when the trial began Man and wife my the verdict “I do” she said I saw Jesus with my angel…
