Track Name: Get Along
WOKE UP EARLY
AND COMBED MY HAIR
PUT ON MY NEW BOOTS
HEADED DOWN TO THE
WATERING STATION
TO HAVE A DRINK WITH YOU
THERE WAS AN OLD MAN
SOFTLY SINGING
ABOUT BEING BLUE
A COUPLE MORE BEERS
AND A COUPLE MORE SHOTS
AND STILL NO YOU.

I GET ALONG GET ALONG GET ALONG GET ALONG THAT’S WHAT I DO
I GET ALONG GET ALONG GET ALONG GET ALONG JUST FINE WITHOUT YOU

I WAITING AROUND TIL EARLY MORNING
AND STUMBLED OUT THE DOOR
FEEL FLAT ON MY FAT
AND CRACKED MY HEAD
STUMBLED OFF THE PORCH
AN OLD LADY GASPED
AND YELLED AT ME
BOY ARE YOU OK?
I MOANED AND I GROANED
AND COUGHED UP SOME BLOOD
AND SAID GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM ME

I GET ALONG GET ALONG GET ALONG THAT’S WHAT I DO
I GET ALONG GET ALONG GET ALONG GET ALONG JUST FINE WITHOUT YOU

I MADE IT HOME
KICKED THE DOG
GOT MYSELF A BEER
PICKED UP THE PHONE
CALLED YOU HOME AND SAID
WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU
A SWEET SWEET VOICE SAID
I’M SORRY OSCAR
I THOUGHT THAT WAS TODAY
I DROPPED THE PHONE
TRIPPED OVER THE CHAIR
AND FELL FLAT ON FACE

CHORUS

WELL THIS HERE PRETTY LITTLE SONG WAS WRITEN ABOUT LOVE
AND THE TRIAL AND TRIBULATIONS OF BEING A MAN.
I DON’T THINK THERE’S MUCH YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT
OTHER THAN JUST BE A MAN

I OPENED MY EYES
WHEN A SPLASH OF WATER HIT ME IN THE FACE
SHE WAS STANDING THERE
IN MY KITCHEN DOOR
IN A PRETTY BLUE DRESS
I PICKED MYSELF UP
STRAIGHTENED MY TEETH
AND GAVE HER A SMILE
SHE GRABBED MY HAIR
AND GAVE ME A KISS
LOVED ME PORNOGRAPHICAL STYLE

CHORUS (X2)
Track Name: Tightening Up the Screws
BEEN A LONG TIME COMING
ALL NOT FOR NOTHING
WE DID ALL WE COULD DO

PAIN THE ENDING
LOVE IN THE BEGINNING
AND MEMORIES IN BETWEEN

I SEE YOU SMILING
START NEW BEGINNING
FIND SOMETHING GOOD FOR YOU

WE’RE BOTH STILL LEARNING
TOSSING AND TURNING
TIGHTENING UP THE SCREWS

TIGHENING UP THE SCREWS (X2)

LATE ONE FINE EVENING
MUSIC STOPS PLAYING
I LOOK UP AND SEE YOU

WE BOTH START SMILING
SONG BIRDS START SIGNING
NEITHER KNOW WHAT TO DO

TIGHENING UP THE SCREWS (X2)

MY HEART STARTS RACING
MY MIND GOING CRAZY
TIGHTENING UP THE SCREWS

TIGHTENING UP THE SCREWS (X4)
Track Name: Long Way From Home
WAY DOWN SOUTH IN MEXICO LIVED A BEAUTIFUL GIRL
THEIVES CAME IN THE DARK OF THE NIGHT AND STOLE HER AWAY.

IT’S A LONG LONG LONG WAY FROM HOME
IT’S A LONG LONG LONG WAY FROM HOME

THEY PUT A KNIFE TO HER THROAT AND TOLD HER TO PRAY
EVIL MEN LOVE EVIL THINGS TOOK HER SOUL AWAY

IT’S A LONG LONG WAY FROM HOME
IT’S A LONG LONG WAY FROM HOME

LONG WAY FROM HOME (X2)

THE FEDERALES RUSHED RIGHT IN AND CAPTURED A MAN
TOLD THEM HE BURIED THE GIRL DOWN BY THE RIVER BED

IT’S A LONG LONG LONG WAY FROM HOME
IT’S A LONG LONG LONG WAY FROM HOME

NOW IN THE DARK OF THE NIGHT YOU CAN HEAR HER CRY
LOST IN THE CACTUS FIELDS RED DIRT IN HER EYES

IT’S A LONG LONG LONG WAY FROM HOME
IT’S A LONG LONG LONG WAY FROM HOME

LONG WAY FROM HOME (X2)
Track Name: Clovis
REAL BAD SITUATION BREWING INSIDE HIS BRAIN
LOST HIS MONEY IN VEGAS ON AN ACE OF SPADES

HELL’S BELLS WHAT THE HELL HAS GONE WRONG?
LOST IN A LAND WHERE THE SUN IS MUCH TOO STRONG
IT AINT EASY TO TAKE IT EASY WHEN YOU’RE GOING INSANE.

JUMPED A TRAIN TO CLOVIS BEGAN TO WHISPER AND CRY
FIGHT BETWEEN A DEMON BROKE OUT IN FRONT OF HIS EYES

HELL’S BELLS WHAT THE HELL HAS GONE WRONG?
LOST IN A LAND WHERE THE SUN IS MUCH TOO STRONG
IT AIN’T EASY TO TAKE IT EASY WHEN YOU’RE GOING INSANE

HE TOOK HIS SUNBURNED OLD HAND BEGAN TO RUB HIS HARD OLD HEAD.
WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOURSELF? A BULLET THEN DEAD.

HELL’S BELLS WHAT THE HELL HAS GONE WRONG?
LOST IN A LAND WHERE THE SUN IS MUCH TOO STRONG
IT AIN’T EASY TO TAKE IT EASY WHEN YOU’RE GOING INSANE

IT AIN’T EASY TO TAKE IT EASY (X2)
WHEN YOU’RE GOING INSANE
Track Name: Bombs Away
BOMBS AWAY
ON THE TOWNS
AND FIELDS BELOW
HOME SWEET HOME

THROUGH THE STREETS
IN THEIR TANKS
GUNS DOWN LOW
FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE

ALL THOSE NIGHTS I SLEEP RIGHT NEXT TO YOU
ALL THOSE NIGHTS I SING LULLABIES

RUN AWAY
FAR AWAY
LEAVE YOUR HOME
RUN FOR YOUR LIFE

SHATTERED LIVES
BROKEN HEARTS
TORN IN TWO
ALL IS LOST

ALL THOSE NIGHTS I LAY RIGHT NEXT TO YOU
ALL THOSE NIGHTS I SING LULLABIES

ALL YOUR CLOTHES
AND YOUR PETS
STAY BEHIND
BURNED TO THE GROUND

FAMILIES
IN THE BOATS
AND DIRTY CAMPS
TRY TO SURVIVE

CHORUS
Track Name: Breeze
TAKE MY HAND AND WALK A WHILE WITH ME
CAN YOU FEEL THE COOL SOFT BREEZE
I LOVE YOU AND YOU LOVE ME TOO
EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT

HOLD ME TIGHT
WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
AND PLEASE PLEASE DON’T EVER LET ME GO
LET ME GO, LET ME GO

YOU SOFT SMOOTH SKIN AND PRETTY BLUE EYES
AND THOSE LONG GOLDEN LOCKS OF HAIR
LAY WITH ME AND LET ME BE YOUR MAN
EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT

HOLD ME TIGHT
WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
AND PLEASE PLEASE DON’T EVER LET ME GO
LET ME GO, LET ME GO

HOLD ME TIGHT, WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
HOLD ME TIGHT, WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT

OUT THROUGH THE GATE AND IN THE TALL GRASS
HAND AND HAND ALL BY OURSELVES
I LAY YOU DOWN AND GIVE A SOFT KISS
EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT

HOLD ME TIGHT
WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
AND PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DON’TLET ME GO
LET ME GO, LET ME GO
HOLD ME TIGHT, NEVER LET ME GO (X2)
LET ME GO
Track Name: Epiphany
I CAN’T BELIEVE
THIS IS HAPPENING TO ME
I JUST DON’T KNOW
WHAT ELSE TO DO

CAN YOU HELP
ME FIGURE THIS THING OUT
THERE’S GOT TO BE
SOMETHING TO DO

THEN IT CAME, LIKE A TINY,
RAY OF LIGHT
ALL SO CLEAR AND TRUE
TIME TO SHINE, TIME IS RIGHT
HAVE TO FIGHT THE FIGHT
TIME TO PULL ON THROUGH

CAN YOU SEE
IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN
AND THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO

THE SECOND TIME
WON’T MATTER THAT MUCH NOW
WE ALL KNOW NOW JUST WHAT TO DO

THEN IT CAME, LIKE A TINY,
RAY OF LIGHT
ALL SO CLEAR AND TRUE
TIME TO SHINE, TIME IS RIGHT
HAVE TO FIGHT THE FIGHT
TIME TO PULL ON THROUGH

WHAT IS WRONG
THIS PICTURE IN MY MIND
I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT I SHOULD DO

CAN YOU HEAR?
SOUND OF TIME GO PASS
MOVING RIGHT BY ME AND YOU

THEN IT CAME LIKE A TINY RAY OF LIGHT
ALL SO CLEAR AND TRUE
TIME TO SHINE, TIME IS RIGHT
HAVE TO FIGHT THE FIGHT
TIME TO PULL ON THROUGH

THEN IT CAME!
LIKE A TINY RAY OF LIGHT
ALL SO CLEAR AND TRUE

CHORUS
Track Name: Whiskey
GIVE ME A SHOT OF WHISKEY
AND AN ICE COLD BEER
I’M GONNA DROWN MY SORROWS
AND SHED A TEAR

I’M NOT SURE HOW IT HAPPENED
OR WHY IT WENT WRONG
I AM SURE THAT SHE BELIEVES
IT’S ALL MY FAULT

GIVE ME ALL THE BOTTLE
AND A PACK OF REDS
I’M GONNA DROWN MY SORROWS
AND SHED A TEAR

PRE-CHORUS

I’M NOT SURE HOW IT HAPPENED
OR WHY IT WENT WRONG
I AM SURE THAT SHE BELIEVES
THAT IT’S ALL MY FAULT (X2)

I CAN’T SEE ANYMORE
AND CAN BARELY TALK
MY WOMEN UP AND LEFT ME
HERE IN THE DARK

STUMBLE DOWN THE ROAD
NO PLACE TO GO
THINGS IN MY HEAD
NONE VERY GOOD

I’M NOW SURE HOW IT HAPPENDED
OR WHY IT HAPPENED
I’M SURE THAT SHE BELIEVES
IT’S ALL MY FAULT

IT’S ALL MY FAULT
