White Lines 04:52
White Lines Am D Out on the highway you can drive Leaving everything behind Follow those white lines to the night Taking it one bend at a time Watching the full moon rise tonight Borrowin’ her silver light Old man tell me what you seek Old man tell me what you find. CHORUS Am G D Out on the highway you can drive Just keep on going till you find Out on the highway you can drive Just keep going till you find, yourself. Love is a stranger on her own. Sometimes she comes, sometimes she goes. Towers of darkness in my mind. Sometimes love can leave you blind. CHORUS But out on the highway you can drive Just keep on going till you find Follow those white lines through the night Maybe one day you will find yourself. SOLO / Am / Am C / X 4 /D / Dsus4 / When nothing can save you and all around Those big old walls are comin’ down Count your blessings count the cost You always lose what you love the most Out on the highway you can drive Just keep on going till you find Out on the highway you can drive Just keep going till you find, yourself. Rpt.

HOLDING ONTO NOTHING Well I went down to Ipswich town Went drinking with Mickey Watched the sun go down we’re talking shit. Got into a fight later that night With a man outside about nothing much or something ‘bout his sister, Though I ain’t even kissed her. And you know which way is down When ur feet don’t touch the ground And ur holding onto nothing yeah you’re holding onto nothing Like it’s something And I spent my life on this factory floor With this blue collar on and I feel so bored just like a number, And I ain’t getting younger As I drive home with the sun burning low Just like a sign of all my dreams Or a youth I still remember We’re flames and now we’re embers And you know which way is down When ur feet don’t touch the ground And ur holding onto nothing yeah you’re holding onto nothing Like it’s something And the nights round here are hell and you know they say sex sells But when the morning comes I just don’t feel so well, And ur holding onto nothing yeah you’re holding onto nothing Like it’s something

Highway Song # 1 She sells roses by the roadside Out on the highway She drives a lift back with a broken rear guard That’s rusted and all fucked up Saturday she’s wearing an old patterned dress, That she bought at a 2nd hand store in her hometown I ask her if she’s married and she says yes She don’t own no ring but that don’t mean nothin’ she says Just points to her chest CHORUS Oh love will find you out in the end Till you’re gone and you can’t get back again So I just drove faster like I could outrun The memories that chased me down that highway One day may they bring me home And I know where I’m headed is risky and sad But that sky will stop falling if you want it to And that rain one day will pass Oh love will find you out in the end Till you’re gone and you can’t get back again So we sit out on her back porch and drink in the night And when there’s nothing left to drink then we go for a drive Between the cool evening breeze and her long black hair I smoke a cigarette and I find me some peace And I’m happy there Oh love will find you out in the end Till you’re gone and you can’t get back again

Electric Hearts Hurry up, hurry up, we got nowhere to run tonight. Pick me up, pick me up, but honey just don’t waste my time Here we come, here we come, just don’t you try to slow us down Don’t you try! Don’t you try! To slow us down Pretty lights, power lines, electric hearts all set on fire Burning up, in the night, like pretty little shooting stars Here they come, here they come, but you won’t ever know which one Till it’s too late! It’s too late! CHORUS Who loves you who holds you tight Who gets you safely through the night Broken hearts in the rain she’ll hit you like a bullet train Make you hers, make you hers, she’ll love you then she’ll blow yr brains Pretty hearts, pretty hearts, all wasted like a ferris wheel Spinnin’ ‘round! Spinnin’ round! In the night She’s dancing like a wildfire Split the night, split the night, with everything we feel so hard Easy come, easy go, someone’s cryin’ on the telephone It’s the end! It’s the end! DOUBLE CHORUS.

Shitsville 02:41
Down at the timber slab factory where Jeb lost his hand Oh the government took his kids And the bank took his house and his land Now it ain’t nothing for him but his day’s full of night And the empty green ones pile up Out by the back door Pretty in the dying light Busted like a bare-knuckle fight Useless like roses on graves And out in the dying light Ugly as a street fight And it’s a only a-getting worse Well I rode down into Shitsvillle On this old motorbike Feeling everything just slide right out from beneath me And there’s days that I don’t feel a Goddamn thing Pretty in the dying light Busted like a bare-knuckle fight Useless like roses on graves Out in the dying light Ugly as a street fight And it’s only a-getting worse Pretty in the dying light Busted like a bare-knuckle fight Useless like roses on graves Out in the dying light Ugly as a street fight And it’s only getting worse Been five long years since I’ve been back, to set things straight, Guess I know sometimes there are some things better left unsaid.

Highway Song PT 2 (When The Evening Dies Blue) Out on the highway to the tune of the dying sun I drive fuelled by the hopes that I have And as the evening comes down and sings me her song I cry won’t you take me home now As I see them planes a flyin’ overhead I don’t wander no more to where they’re sent My heart is safe and sound firmly on the ground Cryin I have finally found you now And late that night the empty bottle rolls And somewhere the midnight bell tolls Of fair weather or warning I just do not know I cry won’t you take me home now As a mistress love can be so cruel Show you the light then blind you like a fool (Show you her hand then play you like a fool) And when the evening dies blue, maybe I will too Crying won’t you take me home now

Lucky Wheels 06:11
Lucky Wheels: 12/8. Intro basically = F(7) to EbMaj F Eb Big old sun rising, here she comes again Eb Bb(maj) Bbmin F Shining her light down, on this tired old town Raise yr weary head get out of yr bed Paper in the street blowin yesterdays news around CHORUS Eb F And if these lucky wheels spin then you’ll find peace Eb Bb F But not before you fought your share of wars If these lucky wheels spin, then you’ll find peace But not before you seen your share o’ scars And you spent yr better yrs, for better or for worse Holdin onto something, follow a dream and count the cost And the seasons keep on passing all around you things are burning Returning to the ground but don’t let it bring you down CHORUS And if these lucky wheels spin then you’ll find peace But not before you fought your share of wars If these lucky wheels spin, then you’ll find peace But not before you seen your share o’ scars Solo = same figure as intro Don’t drink yourself to sleep dreaming small town dreams You’ll walk these dusty roads (alone) but you want highways and flying machines And there’s time enough for rest, so get out of this chair Put on yr boots and get walking boy, u be going somewhere And if these lucky wheels spin then you’ll find peace But not before you fought your share of wars If these lucky wheels spin, then you’ll find peace But not before you seen your share o’ scars
