Track Name: Lost my way (Now and then)
Go on - I’ll tell you again
I’ve lost my way - now and then
From all night drives - through the pouring rain
Across west Kansas - and back again

The good and the bad - my eyes have seen
When I heard you say - its time to leave
I knew I - wouldn’t change a thing
With all I know - and all I’ve seen

Cause I’ve seen a thing or two
I’ve seen the Rio Grande
I drank whiskey with old Richard
Sang Townes Van Zandt
And I’ve been everywhere a traveling man can
I’ve seen at thing or two
I’ve seen the Rio Grande

Three A.M. - is a dreadful place
All alone - on an interstate
Miles from home - and everything
All you know - is changing

I’ve been everywhere a man can be
From east Colorado to Tennessee
Played for a thousand - and I’ve played for free
I’d do it again - any day

Cause I’ve seen a thing or two
I’ve seen the Rio Grande
I drank whiskey with old Richard
Sang Townes Van Zandt
And I’ve been everywhere a traveling man can
I’ve seen at thing or two
I’ve seen the Rio Grande

Go on - I’ll tell you again
I’ve lost my way - now and then
Track Name: Sell all you have
I moved in from the country
To find work and a wife
With those hard days now behind me
They said the time to sell was right

These sixty acres of good land
All the blood, sweat and tears
We built this whole farm with our bare hands
And lord, we had good years

But sometimes you gotta sell all you have
Just to get by - pay your bills - be a man
Oh sometimes you gotta sell all you have
Just to get by - pay your bills be a man

I had a mother and father
but they died ten years ago
And my brother - couldn’t take it
Where he went I still don’t know

Now I’m leaving this old land
Everything and all I know
I’ve got a hard time believing
We all reap what we sow

But sometimes you gotta sell all you have
Just to get by - pay your bills - be a man
Oh sometimes you gotta sell all you have
Just to get by - pay your bills be a man
Track Name: Everywhere a man can be
Town to town - road to road - door to door - coast to coast
I’ve been everywhere a man can be
From St. John’s in Newfoundland - to Prince Edwards copper sand
And Nova Scotia in the spring

Alberta and Saskatchewan - were two of my favourite one’s It was way out there I cut my teeth
And all around Ontario - where I learnt - all I know
I lived in New Brunswick by the sea

I lived up in the Parkland - where I finally took a stand
I was living reckless, right and free
Winter finally came and went - I packed the car and headed west Next day I woke up in BC

Next thing I was headed East, that St. Lawrence calling me I was sleeping neath the prairie stars
I was dreaming of the wind and all the places that I’ve been I was wishing it would blow you back to me

The only place I haven’t been is the great white northland But I know someday there I’ll be

Town to town - road to road - door to door - coast to coast I’ve been everywhere a man can be
I’ve been everywhere a man can be
Track Name: Can't say why
I’m going to run like a river
I’m going to howl like the wind on the plains
You’ll hear my knocking
Rattling your window panes

I’ve been everywhere
and I’ve gone away and come back again
If you were me - I know that you'd do the same

Gone away - come back again
Can’t say why - won’t say when
Gone away - come back again
Can’t say why - won’t say when

Every day is different
Every highway calls my name
Lost and lonely
Driving through the pouring rain

I’ve been everywhere
A man could wish to be
A thousand faces
Seen all I can see

Gone away - come back again
Can’t say why - won’t say when
Gone away - come back again
Can’t say why - won’t say when
Track Name: Make it on time
Long day - longer night
Chasing these highway lines
Suns gone down and the lights are up
I hope that I’ll make it on time

From the coast out through the
Rockies Alberta she’s looking fine
The suns coming up across the prairies
I hope that I’ll make it on time
I hope that I’ll make it on time

East to West and West to East
I’ve crossed every border line
Every town and every city
Find another every night

From the plains out through the great lakes
Each and every mile
The Seventeen don’t get no shorter
But I think that I’m making good time

Foggy days my foggy mind
Its all just fading to night
Slept an hour in Marathon
Just called to say I’m alright

I can see the east a’coming
Ten more miles to the line
Don’t know where I’ve been or I’m going
But I hope that I’ll make it on time

Ten more miles and thirty days
Been running all my life
Don’t know where I’ve been or
I’m going But I hope that I’ll make it on time
I hope that I’ll make it on time
Track Name: South Colorado murder ballad
I found myself in Colorado - in Pueblo where the wind does blow
Walking around with my brother - with nowhere else to go
We went out a’roaming - to see what we could see
All I found was a woman lonesome as could be
Lonesome as could be

We went to that old bar room - and drank that cold liquor down
Waylon, George and Willy - were singing that high and lonesome sound When a man walked in a’talkin’ and waving his pistol around
Saying don’t you tread on me brothers - I was lost but now I am found Was lost but now I’m found

The guns they were blazing - so I pitched out to the floor
Thats when I saw my love a’running - till that bullet it dropped her to the floor I stood shaking and swearing - I looked that man in the eye and said
You have killed my one true love - now sir its your time to die
Sir its your time to die

I grabbed a broken bottle - and turned to find that man
Was standing there before me - shaking with that pistol in his hand I knew my time was coming - so I thought of my dear old friends
And my home out on the lonesome prairie - how I’d meet my end

Till I felt his warm blood running - down upon my hand
That Pueblo man was a stumbling - he was shot by another man
Was shot by another man
Track Name: Come and gone
I’m thinking of all the time thats past - all my eyes have seen
That day we almost died - stuck on the seventeen
Or that all night drive from Moncton to Sydney
I’m thinking of all the time thats past - all my eyes have seen

That day we rolled into Jasper - was like nowhere I’d ever been
Those Rocky mountains standing - so tall in front of me
And down at the legion we played for two or three
That day we rolled into Jasper - was like nowhere I’d ever been

All is gone - Everything I did know
Those late night drives - all those bar room shows
How the time has passed - its come time to go
All has come and gone - All I know

The day I hit the coast - I was flying high and free
I sang every note - like it meant everything
Bob sang that sad song about Pancho and Lefty
The day I hit the coast - I was flying high and free
All is gone - Everything I did know
Those late night drives - all those bar room shows
How the time has passed - And its come time to go
All has come and gone - And whats left to show
All has come and gone - All I know
Track Name: Standin' in the rain
I left Oregon this morning - with a broken hearted tune
And that pretty faced woman - she taught me a thing or two
About quiet and easy living - and how to heal the pain
But I left that pretty woman - standin’ in the rain

I wish she was sitting shotgun - smoking cigarettes
And talking about America - all her hopes and her regrets
We’d sing a Willy P song then we’d sing some Townes
Oh theres nothing more peaceful then that high and lonesome sound

Headed east through Wyoming - driving through the night
With a big ol’ moon a’shining - lighting up the sky
I wish I was in Bend - sitting by your side
But out here on the road so lonesome I could cry

And it’s good luck in Denver - so my Brother said
Don’t you worry about them Cowboys - I’m sure you’ll knock em dead Just sing them a sad tune - I’m sure they’ll come along
I’ll see you in Kansas City - drive safe and don’t be long

I left Oregon this morning - with a broken hearted tune
And that pretty faced woman - she taught me a thing or two
About quiet and easy living - and how to heal the pain
But I left that pretty woman - standin’ in the rain
Track Name: Wild rose county
In wild rose county - those mountains stand so tall
I’ve been gone so long - got nowhere left to go
Its been three long months - maybe more that I’ve been gone
Stuck in wild rose county with no way to get home

Its straight as the crow flies or three days on the road
Out here so far from home
You said don’t you worry - I know why your gone
Straight as the crow flies or three days...

Back in wild rose county - the working days are all so long
We work until the sun sets and wake up with the next dawn
I’m just trying to get by with this old guitar and songs
Stuck in wild rose county with no way to get home

Its straight as the crow flies or three days on the road
Out here so far from home
You said don’t you worry - I know why your gone
Straight as the crow flies or three days...

In wild rose county - I heard your voice on the phone
You were saying you missed me - and you’re tired of being alone
Oh it ain’t that easy - living out here on my own
Stuck in wild rose county with no way to get home
Stuck in wild rose county with no way to get home
