Track Name: Ghost Highway
Well as I set upon this blue
blue rolling home
well it takes a toll
and it takes me home, riding on the rails
made of old familiar souls

and now we walk on this ghost highway
now were home now on this byway
and I'm home now, walk awhile
walking here on this ghost highway

when I'm home awake
awake and alive
i wont die just to sing
sing a sad ghost song
oh a ghost song

and now we walk on this ghost highway
now were home on this byway
and I'm home now, walk awhile
seeing old sites all the while
walking here on this ghost highway
Track Name: Liberation Blues
Well they all say, well they all say
get alive, get alive

I've been living a lie babe
but I've been living it right
i've been drinking it down babe
when its harder to say
what a long long day
what I long to say

I said your dying, instead of trying

and they all say, they all say
get alive, get alive

they want us gone were we came from
but this aint the way we came
I've been drinking it down babe
when its harder to say
now I pick up my pay
and this gets harder to say
on such a lovely day
oh a lovely day

well they're lying, well they're lying
instead of dying, instead of dying

and were dying and a dying
so get alive, so get alive
Track Name: What Have I Done Wrong

I cry, sit and cry night and day
I cry, yeah cry night and day
I haven't been myself since you went away

Baby try me one more time
baby try me one more time
I swear I'll be good if I don't I'm gonna lose my mind

I said baby what have I done wrong
I said babe what have i done wrong

I said babe, Babe, babe, don't
Track Name: Jump Loose
The rest are all gone I think it might be time to go
west out of our home and we shot down like a stone

down by the tracks with nothing on my back

Counting down the days and I hope I have some left
I lost count go chain someone else
I lost count the chains and the chains
Jump Loose now we gottta get up and out

Track Name: Stone Blues
Its just a deadline with no end
Its just a tight rope in the wind
Cause we got arrowhead to spend
Get back

some words can ride you on your back
eI played the man who thought I knew
We tore a hole in the breakthrough
Get it back

Its just a dateline with no end
I keep seeing this in the end
Its just a tight rope in the wind
Get it back

We tore a hole when we broke through
Cause some words ride on your back
We got arrowhead to spend
Oh get back
Track Name: Blue Light
We can see the light on
At night I see the Light on
Oh Way down
that array has been sewn
we can see the light on
at night I see the light on
upside

people see the light on
I wanna see the light on
I wanna find the handshake
oh not the grindstone
cause were on a time loan
upside

people see the light on
i wanna see the light on
and I see the heartache
and I see the lights on
I wanna find the handshake
oh not the grind stone
cause were on a time loan
outside

at night i see lights on, all the way
Track Name: Western Spell
way out west and I never came back
over the hills with my clothes in a sack
I got the daze and a heart attack
I never paid yeah but I can hack

Oh way down, all along
wear my face yeah like a song
I say hey aint life a bitch
sometimes yeah a whale of a tale

seen many moons in strange lands
sometimes true grit is just fine sand
better be cool and for hire
than have your ass in the fire

Oh way down, all along
wear my face yeah like a song
I say hey, hey hey
I say hey aint life a bitch
sometimes yeah its a whale of a tale
way down, were going alone
Track Name: Awake at Night
I was alone when I woke up at home
woke up alone and I saw to far
drive it down and all could see
seeing to long and long for me
got to go then I went out walking
into the store where I began
so much food and all the pans
pretty girls in the magazines

I'm over events oh that changed the world
I cant see when I'm blind at night
Its harder to see when your blind at night
harder to see but I'm alright
Harder to see and I'm awake at night
Track Name: Keep On
they see its easy
but it aint easy
let it all go
there I'll get free

we got it all now
you got it all now
you got it all out
and gave it away

let it go now
let it go out
let it flow out
down to the end of the line

Cause you open
your eyes now
you can see out
no winning here

you gotta keep on
keep it on now
keep moving
keep on somehow
Track Name: The Explorer
oh ho

across the lands across the sea
we can dream, her to me

never lost, never gone
never far, in my bones

in my bones, yeah
