Track Name: Roustabouts, Roughnecks and Dinosaur Bones
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
Track Name: Don't Get Me Thinkin'
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
Track Name: Mountain Wife
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
Track Name: End Of The Road
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]
Track Name: Sunshine and Moonshine
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
Track Name: Another Day
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
Track Name: Letter In My Pocket
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
Track Name: No Crime
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
Track Name: Mojo On My Solo
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,
Track Name: A Bit Of Hurt
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
Track Name: Time's A Stallin'
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
Track Name: Basement Band
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
Track Name: Walk On Or Whatever
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
Track Name: Jesus With My Angel
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…
