Annie 03:54
Annie Down on the esplanade we’d walk at night Watch the flames as someone else played with fire The Western Pier just like a satellite That someone set on fire and pushed into the night We crossed the road and you kissed me hard enough To knock me down, down, down One smile from you was usually all it took To knock me out And outside all the leaves are falling down But I loved you Annie Riding through these streets just like the wind Oh I loved you Annie straight as I could be You were the shining light I’d never be You had to save yourself for someone else to glow You lit the night up like a shooting star I was caught up in the blazing tail You looked at me then kissed me hard enough To knock me down One smile from you was usually all it took To knock me out And outside all the leaves are falling down But I loved you Annie Riding through these streets just like the wind Oh I loved you Annie Straight as I could be I never really held you long enough to really make a change And all the stars that stand above us now for a while we burned as bright And all the stars that stand above us now for a (while we burned as bright) X2 I loved you Annie straight as I could be I loved you Annie how did you love me I loved you Annie straight as I could be I loved you Annie how did you love me

Goldmine 04:15
Goldmine I got a smell of death, From the house on the hill. I learnt it at an early age, I learnt it well. And the goldmine’s still burning, At the back of my mind and it’s fierce, And the long road’s still calling, Like a star on the hill Late at night all alone When the phone rings in the dead of the night, I still feel that fear. When the car left the road, and no sound followed, Oh Lord I said a prayer. And the goldmine’s still burning, At the back of my mind and it’s fierce, And the long road still haunts me, Like a star on the hill Late at night all alone. I got a smell of death, From the house on the hill. I learnt it at an early age, I learnt it well, I learnt it well

Blackbird 03:05
Blackbird When the rain falls down, Will you drive straight home To be with him, in his time of need. In his time of need. When the blackbird sings, Will you spread you wings and fly, Straight in to the sky, with no regrets. With no regrets. And it sure feels good to be back home again It sure feels good to be standing again, at your side. Oh we worked hard, but we worked out all right. Will you pack yr bags, will you drive straight home To see him girl when he calls yr name. When the blackbird sings, Will you spread you wings and fly, Straight in to the sky, with no regrets. With no regrets. And it sure feels good to be back home again, that’s right. It sure feels good to be standing again, at your side. Oh we worked hard, but we worked out all right. When the rain falls down, Will you drive straight home To be with him When the blackbird sings, Will you spread you wings and fly, Straight in to the sky, with no regrets. With no regrets

One More Time. Turn off the fan and lie in the cool morning air And hold my love tight. To the sound of the freeway I’d die if I go nowhere But she holds back the night And I’ll walk the line one more time Oh I’ll walk the line one more time If you find love is nothing but flowers and a crying despair You know love ain’t there In the evening she comes and she tries To make peace all our own Oh why do I fight it would I die alone? And I’ll walk the line one more time Oh I’ll walk the line one more time And I mean every word that I say, nothing more nothing less And you know that I long, I long to be near. To love you and hold you and feel your soft caress And I mean what I say, nothing more, nothing less. Oh I’ll walk the line one more time. Yes I’ll walk the line one more time. Oh I’ll walk the line one more time. Yes I’ll walk the line one more time.

Baby Doll Maybe I should just stop running, Make a stand and fold this hand, I’m holding on too tight. The joker’s wearing kind of thin, The queen of hearts she tells me, “Boy you’d better make a choice, you’re wearing out your welcome here.” La de da, just like a boy, But you know I wanna be a man, And girl I know you’re not a toy, Can you help me understand? Can you help me understand? Night she sets out on the city, I wanna come in from the cold, But maybe I’m too old to ever change my weary ways. Baby doll, baby doll, do I disappoint you, Looking for the answers, Losing sight of what I got in my two hands La de da, just like a boy, But you know I wanna be a man, Oh girl I know you’re not a toy, Can you help me understand? Can you help me understand? Can you help me understand? Bounced around for all these years, Just like a pinball in the back room Of some bar you’re never been. Waiting for someone to play, But it’s closing time and everybody’s holding hands or Drunk or both, oh God am I too late? La de da, just like a boy, But you know I wanna be a man, Oh girl I know you’re not a toy, Can you help me understand? Can you help me understand? Can you help me understand?

Everybody’s Going Somewhere Head out the drive, Turn left, then right, then right again. Hit the freeway hard, And slip alone through the night Slip alone through the night Head into the night, Just like a shooting star. But don’t tell no one, And don’t believe all ya hear. Cause everybody’s going somewhere, Yeah everybody’s going somewhere. Oh everybody’s going somewhere. Head into the night. Just like a shooting star. But don’t believe all you see, And don’t tell no one Cause it’s a secret, Oh oh it’s a secret Everybody’s going somewhere x 3.

Where Does It Go I pack a change of clothes In case she asks me to stay At the end of the day But we’ve been down that road Too many times And some things they don’t ever change No matter how you try Dropped you off as the sun Bid us goodnight And I remember someone once told me Love never dies So where does it go And I hold her tight But she don’t love me like you did Oh darling I’m sorry I acted just like I did And oh Lord we tried The best that we knew I don’t know how this love left us Feeling so blue So where does it go Just like lovers do Oh we had our fights At the end of the day It ain’t about who’s wrong And it ain’t about who’s right And I guess we loved But sometimes that’s not enough To keep two people together And we fell apart Where does it go

The Grave of Margaritis Angel lies face down in the graveyard Just flappin’ her wings in the cool Autumn breeze And Margaritis died in 1953 A husband and a father Oh Lord there was grief Like you’ve never seen And all around the clouds Were promising rain But what did they bring to the scene Nothing but shadows And a too early grave A too early grave for thee Do the headstones confound you The epitaphs they read “They found their way home one year at a go” Do you float like a drifter Or stop at the scene Aware of the load They would make you carry All the way to the end of the line And all around the clouds Were promising rain But what did they bring to the scene Nothing but shadows And a too early grave A too early grave for thee And the pine trees that point the way home They offer you no peace at all And the headstones just sink on their owners Like they’re tired of standing here too

I came down to see you Just the other day I met your ma and she drove the knife A little farther home I’d say Well I can’t see to clearly now Through the bottom of this empty cup And even though I know this night won’t Lighten up my load You’d better give me One more for the road ‘cause honey I’m a drinker now That’s the way it’s gonna stay Your streets don’t hold much hope for me But I drive ‘em all the same And I can’t see too clearly now Through the bottom of this empty cup And even though I know this night won’t Lighten up my load You’d better give me One more for the road I left my heart at the borderline Where the river winds it’s way I think of you when I pass through All those fields of blowin’ cane Well they all shout your name And I can’t see too clearly now Through the bottom of this empty cup Even though I know this night won’t Lighten up my load You’d better give me One more for the road

One More for The Road. I came down to see you Just the other day I met your ma and she drove the knife A little farther home I’d say Well I can’t see to clearly now Through the bottom of this empty cup And even though I know this night won’t Lighten up my load You’d better give me One more for the road ‘cause honey I’m a drinker now That’s the way it’s gonna stay Your streets don’t hold much hope for me But I drive ‘em all the same And I can’t see too clearly now Through the bottom of this empty cup And even though I know this night won’t Lighten up my load You’d better give me One more for the road I left my heart at the borderline Where the river winds it’s way I think of you when I pass through All those fields of blowin’ cane Well they all shout your name And I can’t see too clearly now Through the bottom of this empty cup Even though I know this night won’t Lighten up my load You’d better give me One more for the road

Mary 05:17
Mary Mary left town a long long time ago Where she went to I never did know Now I don’t get nothin’ but cold driving rain When I take a walk down memory lane And the wind it blows hard down the street these days Ain’t nothin’ but curtains and locks on the gates And I miss her hands at the wheel on the way Down the road to her place at the end of the day You wanna stay for a while have a drink With eyes that said more than her mouth ever did And I miss her hands at the wheel on the way Down the road to her place at the end of the day And the wind it blows hard down the street these days Ain’t nothin’ but curtains and locks on the gates See Mary left town a long time ago Where she went to I never did know The day that she left I got drunk fought and swore Felt my heart sink and go right through the floor Kicked a hole clear through the publican’s door And busted a window at the company store Walked 15 miles through the cold drivin rain And slept on her porch See Mary left town a long long time ago Where she went to I never did know
