Track Name: Days Of Old
Days Of Old

Me and Martin, sitting in the back of the good ol bus.
Sparked one up and burned one down just the two of us.
Started rolling, laughing til we cried and it hurt.
Didn’t care that all we could afford to smoke was dirt.

These are the days of old, memories of my past.
These are the days of old, I knew these days could never last.

Me and Daniel, sitting in his room playing guitar
Taught me Black Dog, and Sweet Home Al didn’t get too far.
Was the start of the best change to ever happen to me.
Was a boy who helped to shape the man that you see.

These are the days of old, memories of my past.
These are the days of old, I knew these days could never last.

Funny thing about memories, not caught on film their just stories
Memories all seem to fade, and all are lost in the ground we’re laid.

These are the days of old, memories of my past.
These are the days of old, I knew these days could never last.
Track Name: Honeychild
Honeychild

Hey was it something I said?
Why are you going to bed?
Please don’t leave me alone,
Cause I’ve got a great big bone
To pick with you my honeychild
Yes you, my honeychild.

Stoned me with sweet talking jive, you were
Buzzing like the queen of the hive
Turned my world all around.
My knees bent to the ground.
For you my sweet love
Yes you, my honeychild

Oh my honeychild you’re like sucking on sugar cane.
Sweet sugarplums be dancing in my head.
My sweet tooth is aching and full of pain.
There ain’t nothing sweeter than you candy in my bed.
Oh my honeychild……you’re so sweet.

So please baby take me to bed.
Forget all the words that we said.
Talk all about this at dawn.
When yesterday’s worries are gone
From you my honeychild.
Yes you my honeychild.
Oh baby you are my honeychild.
Yes you are my honeychild.
Track Name: Heartbar
Heartbar

Shades filter through my eye, sunlight is shining down.
These are the days I will never forget, here in these sacred grounds.
Mountains cut into the sky,rivers run fast and clean.
These memories of my childhood, the most beautiful place I ever seen.

This place will be no more, where the campfires burn
Thing keep changing before my eyes, every second the world turns

My father told me it was a special place, of which a few did only know.
This grove of trees so ancient and so wise, from which the falcons flew.
Makes me wonder which way does the world go, when we destroy all that is good.
Makes me wonder about the soul of a man, would we save it if we could?

This place will be no more, where the campfires burn
Thing keep changing before my eyes, every second the world turns

When will we be coming back here again,
This place will be no more.

When will we be coming back here again,
This place will be no more.
When will we be coming back here again,
This place will be no more.
Track Name: On The Road
On The Road

On the road out to Georgia,
I saw the sun set in the sky
Know I’m coming out to see you
Too many years have passed us by

On the road, I’ve seen the strangest things
Saw an angel fall from the sky
I left to find myself, and try to free my soul
Looks like I can go home now
I left to find myself, and try to free my soul
Looks like I can go home now

These country road they are a windin’
Can lead you down so many ways
Was myself I was a findin’
While I was gone these many days

On the road, I’ve seen the strangest things
Saw a man break down and cry
I left to find myself, and try to free my soul
Looks like I can go home now
I left to find myself, and try to free my soul
Looks like I can go home now

Midnight hours they are a passin’
Time for me to ramble home
‘Thout your love I ain’t a lasting
Time to stop this endless roam

On the road, I’ve seen the strangest things.
Saw the Devil ask God why? Oh God why?
I left to find myself, and try to free my soul
Looks like I can go home now
I left to find myself, and try to free my soul
Looks like I can go home now
Track Name: Sweetgrass
Sweetgrass

Billy-Rae was an honest boy, raised in Nashville Tennessee
You know he had a country soul, kinda soul that could set you free.
Headed out to California, land of sand and sunny beach.
Before his eyes stood a vision, this conclusion he did reach.

More than fate had brought him here,
He fell in love with a girl down on Sweetgrass Lane.

Becky Jean was no country girl, she loved that New York skyline.
Her family came to California, and fell in love with the West Coast life.
Riding on the PCH she saw a sign in the morning dew.
Then she felt her breath steal away, man that’s how that woman knew.

More than fate had brought her here,
He fell in love with a boy down on Sweetgrass Lane.

Winds of fate can blow you down, so many roads you could roll.
Hope you find yourself in a place that feels good to your soul.
For Billy-Rae and Becky Jean, search for love is finally done.
Joined together in harmony, two parts made into one.

More than fate had brought them here,
They fell in love with a dream down on Sweetgrass Lane.
Track Name: The Wheel
The Wheel

Find myself alone with my emotions
Trapped inside a silence I can’t sound
Dwelling in the possible inversions
That keep me here rooted to the ground.

I focus my attention to the wheel,
A point in time returning to it’s end
Pondering circular motion
Ways into confusion it will lend

Driving now without a destination
Heading down a highway without gas
Wondering where I’ve been going
Heading on a journey that won’t last

I focus my attention to the wheel
Spinning on an axis forms a roll
Heading heedless without a direction
Leaving me with questions for the soul.

I’ve living for some forgotten fantasy
Hidden in my soul until today
I’ve living for some forgotten fantasy
Hidden in my soul until today
Until today, until today, until today

Gonna find a way to beat it
Put my life back in line
Gonnna find a way to beat it
Make my soul mine (make my soul mine)
Make my soul mine (make my soul mine)
Track Name: Something To Be Said
Something To Be Said

There is something to be said
About a man who climbs a mountain
Only oh only cause the mountains there
There is something to be said about human determination
And the will to persevere

There is something to be said
About a mother who brings forth life
And much more to be said about the family that will make it thrive
There is something to be said about human determination
And the will to persevere

There’s something to be said
About the souls who’ve sunk to the bottom
But continue to rise and fight for a breath of air,
ooh sweet sweet air
Will you be held down by the waters of oppression
Or let the sun, oh let the sun set you free
There is something to be said about human determination
And the will to persevere
Track Name: Rubys
Rubys

Well haven’t you ever wanted to
Smoke a doobie Ruby (burn one down)
Why wouldn’t I want to get high,
It’s not like I need to fill a void (pass it round)
Tell me Gus what’s all the fuss
Bout what we’ve been doing?
Don’t get it at all, it’s like talking to a wall
Everyone’s so paranoid

According to Dan the government has a plan,
To rid the world of joy (burn one down)
But I don’t think we’re staning on the brink,
We have yet to light the fuse (pass it round)
Say hey Lee thinks Christianity has forgotten it’s own story
What the Bible say still meaningful today
God gave us seeds and herbs to use

If I don’t bother you don’t bother me.
Everybody’s got the right to be free, hey oh na na na

Well haven’t you ever wanted to, smoke a doobie Ruby
Why the strife don’t you know it’s my life
Just wanna have a little fun,
Light it up, light it up
Track Name: Can't Understand
Can’t Understand

Something happening in this world such a change
People do some horrible thing
I don’t understand it no,
Why does this have to be

Why? Why does this have to be?
Why? Why does this have to be?

Well all of this happening
We have a choice to live our lives to the fullest
And they don’t want to let us no
Why can’t they leave us alone

Why? Why does this have to be?
Why? Why does this have to be?

Why oh why does this have to be?
Why oh why does this have to be?
