-STANDIN ON AN OLD WOODEN CASK
-GOT MY PISTOL READY TO BLAST
-ENOUGH GUNPOWDER TO KNOCK YOU ON YOUR ASS -WHEN A TRAPDOOR SWINGS YOU BACK INTO THE PAST -IN A WHISKY GAMBLIN BLISS
-ALL YOUR DOUGH, ON THE LINE, YOU BETTER NOT MISS

-BOTTLES ROLLIN ROUND ON THE FLOOR
-WHEN OLD MAN WALKS IN THROUGH THE DOOR
-AND IT SEEMS AS THOUGH WEʼVE MET SOMEPLACE BEFORE -BUT NOTHINGʼS MAKING SENSE ANY MORE
-HIS WISDOM, I COULDNʼT COMPREHEND
-HE TELLS ME A RIDDLE. DESPITE THE STATE IʼM IN

I CANʼT REMEMBER MY OWN NAME.. CANNOT DECIPHER NIGHT FROM THE DAY
NOWHERE TO RUN TO, NOWHERE TO HIDE.. UNDO THIS VOODOO BEFORE I DIE

-NOW IʼM STUCK ON THIS PARABLE.. & THE SUSPENSE IS HARDLY BEARABLE
-I FEEL AS THOUGH HE STARED INTO MY SOUL..
-WHAT SECRET DOES THIS RIDDLE HOLD?..
– I WONDER IF THIS MAN IS ME
-IS HE IN MY MIND? OH IT SEEMS TOO REAL TO BE

-ALL THESE THOUGHTS WRAPPING ʻROUND MY HEAD. -& ECHOES OF THE WORDS THE OLD MAN SAID
-IF I DONʼT LEAVE FROM HERE, IʼLL SOON BE DEAD -STUMBLE ALL THE WAY HOME TO MY BED
-AS I PASS OUT, I CAN ONLY HOPE
-WHEN I AWAKEN FROM MY SLEEP, IʼLL HAVE MY ANTIDOTE

NO… I CANʼT REMEMBER MY OWN NAME.. CANNOT DECIPHER NIGHT FROM THE DAY

NOWHERE TO RUN TO, NOWHERE TO HIDE.. UNDO THIS VOODOO BEFORE I DIE

LIGHTNING STRUCK ME IN THE ATTIC    THUNDERSTORM IN MY PAPER JACKET    RUNNIN THROUGH THE ELECTROSTATIC CUT ME LOOSE LIKE A GROOVE-O-MATIC

DANCIN WITH THE RECORD PLAYER BANG MY DRUMS AND SHAKE MY SHAKER DRIVIN CRAZY ALL THE NEIGHBORS GONNA GET MY FRUIT FROM MY HARD LABOR

YEAH- THIS TIME I… KNOW WHAT I WANT    AND THIS TIME IʼM… GONNA GET WHAT I WANT

DONʼT NEED A PLACE TO HIDE AWAY
NO THEREʼS NOTHING GETTING IN MY WAY IʼVE GOT NO TIME TO WASTE AWAY
WHILE THE SUN SHINES ON THESE GOLDEN DAYS ʻCAUSE IʼM FREE~

LEFT MY TROUBLES AT THE DEPOT
BOXCAR RIDING WITH THE HOBOS
LIVIN FREELY, ITʼS MY MOTTO
GONNA JUMP OUT WHEN I REACH THE CROSSROADS

ʻCAUSE THIS TIME I… KNOW WHAT I WANT   AND THIS TIME IʼM… GONNA GET WHAT I WANT

HUBCAP DAYS GOIN ROUND AND ROUND IN A BLAZE FROM TOWN TO TOWN SWIMMIN THROUGH A SEA OF SOUND (& IʼM) INTERCONTINENTAL BOUND

AND THIS TIME I… KNOW WHAT I WANT
AND THIS TIME IʼM… GONNA GET WHAT I WANT

DONʼT NEED A PLACE TO HIDE AWAY

NO THEREʼS NOTHING GETTING IN MY WAY IʼVE GOT NO TIME TO WASTE AWAY
WHILE THE SUN SHINES ON THESE GOLDEN DAYS ʻCAUSE IʼM FREE~

NO-WAY, NO-HOW, NO-ONE KNOWS WHY NEVER KNOW, YOU JUST GOTTA TRY IN PURSUIT, GOT MY ALIBY GOT-TO LAY IT DOWN BEFORE I DIE

BLACK AND WHITE TO TECHNICOLOR   WOMAN SO FINE, YOU GOT-TO LOVE HER   WORLD IS WAITING TO DISCOVER   ALL THE BEAUTY IN ONE ANOTHER

Nate Weldon ‘Make My Way’

ON A MOUNTAIN TOP…
…I STARTED DREAMING, AND I REFUSED TO STOP.
I HAD A DIFFERENT WALK…
…SPOKE A DIFFERENT LANGUAGE WHEN IʼD TALK.
IN THE COOLNESS OF THE BREEZE…
…I STOOD THERE JUST STARING AT THE TREES. WITH GOOD VIBES ALL AROUND…
…IF YOU LISTENED, YOU COULD HEAR A DISTANT SOUND.

~ I MAKE MY WAY ~ I KNEW I COULDNʼT STAY

NOW IʼM WALKING DOWN THE STREET… …GROWING STEADY ROOTS FROM UNDERNEATH. SUNSHINE ON MY FACE…
…I KNOW IʼM GETTING CLOSER TO MY PLACE. AND IʼM NOT GONNA FALL…
…GOTTA MOVE, I HEAR MY CALL.
USE TO LET IT ROLL…
…NOW I KEEP MY FOCUS, MY CONTROL.

~ JUST THINKING OF  ~ SO MUCH I LOVE ….. ~ I MAKE MY WAY

ONE DAY IʼLL BE GONE…

…AND MY SPIRIT LIVING ON. KNOWING IN MY HEART…
…I DO MY BEST TO PLAY MY PART.
AND – SOMETHING SOMEONE SAID… …ALWAYS STUCK INSIDE MY HEAD.
SHE TOLD ME “NEVER CHANGE… …AND MAKE YOUR WAY THE BEST YOU CAN”

~ JUST THINKING OF  ~ SO MUCH I LOVE ….. OOH~ I MAKE MY WAY

A WRECKING BALL.. CRASHING DOWN ON ME  AND I WIND UP
IN A PITFALL.. IʼLL HAVE TO START ALL OVER FROM THE GROUND UP   FORGET IT ALL… THE WAY THAT THINGS HAD SEEMED TO HAVE LINED UP
AGAINST A WALL… LET GO OF EVERYTHING, IʼVE MADE MY MIND UP

OH  WRECKING BALL.. COME TO GET ME. COME TO SET ME STRAIGHT OH  WRECKING BALL… SWINGING AT ME. KNOCK ME FREE OF MY DEADWEIGHT

HOW?…. COULD IT BE… ABOUT TO BURST… AT THE SEEMS WONʼT….. BE STOPPING ME… I STILL HAVE…. ALL MY DREAMS

OH  WRECKING BALL.. COME TO GET ME. COME TO SET ME STRAIGHT OH  WRECKING BALL… SWINGING AT ME. KNOCK ME FREE OF MY DEADWEIGHT

THE MOUNTAINS OF GOLD AND FOOTHILLS OF OLD  THE MOUNTAINS OF GOLD AND FOOTHILLS OF OLD

I KNOW THEYʼLL ALWAYS BE AROUND AND HERE BY MY SIDE
THEYʼLL NEVER LET ME DOWN  THEYʼRE PART OF MY LIFE

STANDING OVER ME RISING TO THE SKY I OPEN MY ARMS JUST LIKE I CAN FLY

THE MOUNTAINS OF GOLD AND FOOTHILLS OF OLD  THE MOUNTAINS OF GOLD AND FOOTHILLS OF OLD
