Track Name: On My Way
Some say you're a big fish swimming a small pond
but I say we're the same kind and you're my only one
and that boy is just a dream of mine, I'd rather chase a train
and kiss that pretty mouth of his, I best be on my way

I ain't never been to the south dear, ain't never been to the plains
I come from the desert where lonesome has no name
You're stumblin' for your words dear, you ask me to stay
just kiss my pretty country mouth and I best be on my way

I've only a few dollars now and I'm like the wind and rain
I'm blowing my last penny gone and pouring my heart again
and that boy is just a dream of mine, I'd rather chase a train
and kiss that pretty mouth of his, I best be on my way

I ain't never been to the south dear, ain't never been to the plains
I come from the desert where lonesome has no name
You're stumblin' for your words dear, you ask me to stay
just kiss my pretty country mouth and I best be on my way

Track Name: One More Dollar
My baby says that I taste so fine
and he drinks me down like cherry wine

I got one more dollar for the road
i got one more day until I'm home

And if that rain don't rise that creek
i'll be back for my sugar sweet

I got one more dollar for the road
I got one more day until I'm home

I ran away a hundred times and one
this highway is forever long

I got one more dollar for the road
I got one more day until I'm home

Out west under the skies of heat
end of the day has got best of me

I got one more dollar for the road
I got one more day until I'm home

Out in the city I got a worried mind
hit the floorboards and just leave it behind

I got one more dollar for the road
i got one more day until I'm home

lyrics by Caitlin Jemma
Track Name: Honey You Gotta Go
Sun comes up honey and the sun goes down babe
I don't mind darling because either way
honey you gotta go, baby you gotta ride

I gone down towards the Mississip'
and the lord does know that's where my heart has been
honey you gotta go, baby you gotta ride

From time to time you can hear the hum
first morning hours of burning sun
honey you gotta go baby you gotta ride

Put some sugar all in my bowl
I got no reason, no cause no more
honey you gotta go baby you gotta ride

I tell you all the time

Sun comes up honey and the sun goes down babe
i don't mind darling because either way
honey you gotta go, baby you gotta ride

Lyrics by Caitlin Jemma
Track Name: Around the Bend
Moonlight overhead shining on the backs of ravens,
walking home power lines swinging ropes in the wind
I've known you my friend I've known you
only as strangers, out in the valley and the rivers end

When you know your dreams, sometimes they chase you down
caught in your teeth like a wild hound
running free on the sidetracks you've never known
Tomorrow's the day my train will come
and I won't be late, no

We're looking for another thing
it's just around the bend, only around the bend

Sunrise sky's a tame mountain blue
i love a rich yellow light moving through the woods
for whats it worth in maps and lines
you'll lose your head on city time

I heard him sing with the wildest of hearts
the man with the blues at the corner bar
a restless man, a young soul, an old guitar
sleeping in the arms of the loving road
singing, mama what you waiting for?

We're looking for another thing
it's just around the bend, only around the bend

Lyrics by Caitlin Jemma
Track Name: Days Gone By
So you keep on moving with the sun smiling
it's the same old smile and it's always right
because there's no timing when you're gone

So it keeps on turning and you're always learning
It's not who you were, no no or who you are
because you're nobody when you're gone

The days gone by so blue I swear
but now we're headed on back,
we're headed on back
we're headed on back and now they're gone

The wiser men they would not have done
as I have, on the last of my luck
all spent out but still I'd fall

but there's times to roll, oh honey there's times to ride
it doesn't matter where we go
we'll just get on by
put your hand in mine

The days gone by so blue I swear
but now we're headed on back,
we're headed on back
we're headed on back and now they're gone

The streets are wide and open today
the lights along that ridge and the road is clear
the days go by without our say

That's when I thought of you
because no one can hear my call like that
I sent it to the wildest winds
and still you heard me then

The days gone by so blue I swear
but now we're headed on back,
we're headed on back
we're headed on back and now they're gone
