    The Old Stuff

    Oh I said a little prayer tonight
    Before I came on stage
    As I came walkin' past the drivers and the locals on
    the union wage
    I asked the dear Lord up in heaven
    Let me treat the music right
    Then I prayed that Detroit
    Goes wild tonight

    Seven pickers and all our gear in a rental van
    Playin' music never sleepin' and workin' on a neon
    tan
    We played The Barn down in Sanford Florida
    For Bev Roberts out in Camden Park
    We plugged it in up east at Bull Run and the place
    went dark

    Back when the old stuff was new
    Back before the buses and the hard workin' boys in
    the crew
    It was one big party
    But the business called it payin' our dues
    Back when the old stuff was new

    Oh the stories we could tell
    If it weren't for the code of the road
    About The Buckboard, Bear Creek, Cowboys, and the
    Grizzly Rose
    You know the weather turned bad in Scottsdale
    A tornado nearly stole the show
    We just danced in the rain and listened to the
    thunder roll

    Back when the old stuff was new
    Hats off to the K.C. Opry and ellA GURU'S
    It was one big party
    Uncle Joe you know we owe it to you
    Back when the old stuff was new

    No rules young fools comin' from the old school
    Takin' on the world alone
    Next date can't wait tearin' up the interstate
    Every place we played was home
    Balls out no doubt this is what it's all about
    Beggin' for a place to play
    Swingin' with our old friends
    Prayin' that it never ends
    Wouldn't trade a single day

    Back when the old stuff was new
    Back before the buses and the hard workin' boys in
    the crew
    It was one big party
    But the paper's called it payin' our dues
    Back when the old stuff was new

    Hey it's still one big party
    You can call it whatever you choose
    You make me feel like the old stuff is new



    Cowboys And Angels

    On the eighth day God noticed a problem
    For there below Him stood a cowboy alone
    Stubborn and proud, reckless and loud
    God knew he'd never make it on his own
    So God looked out all over creation
    And listened as that cowboy prayed
    God took passion and thunder
    Patience and wonder then He sent down
    The best thing that God ever made

    Cowboys and angels leather and lace
    Salt of the earth meets heavenly grace
    Cowboys and angels tested and tried
    I'ts a long way to heaven
    And one hell of a ride

    Nothin's changed since the dawn of creation
    For you will find them together today
    And only heaven above them knows why
    she loves him
    But he must be the reason she don't fly away

    Cowboys and angels leather and lace
    Salt of the earth meets heavenly grace
    Cowboys and angels tested and tried
    It's a long way to heaven
    And one hell of a ride

    It's a long way to heaven
    And one hell of a ride.



    The Fever

    He's got a split finger wrap
    And his rope's pulled way to tight
    He's got a lunatic smile
    'Cause he's really drawn deep tonight

    He's got a fever, fever, fever, fever
    Grab a hold of anything and hold on tight
    It hits you like the venom from a rattle snake bite
    We're all here 'cause he's not all there tonight

    He takes one breath
    And time turns inside out
    Then the gate busts open to the world he dreams about

    He's got a fever, fever, fever, fever
    Stick a rope on anything 'cause he don't care
    He'd even take a ride on the electric chair
    We're all here cause he's not all there tonight

    He says it's really kind of simple
    Keep your mind in the middle
    While your butt spins 'round and 'round
    Take heed to Sankey's preachin'
    Keep liftin' and reachin'
    And ridin' like there ain't no clowns

    What he loves might kill him
    But he's got no choice
    He's a different breed
    With a voice down deep inside
    That's screamin' he was born to ride

    He's got a fever, fever, fever, fever
    Fever makes you crazy 'cause it makes no sense
    Like runnin' from your shadow out of self-defense
    He won't run and baby he can't hide
    He thinks the odds are even leavin' one hand tied
    He gets so tired of hangin' on so tight
    I know you think he's crazy well I think you're right
    We're all here 'cause he's not all there that's right



    That Ol' Wind

    She dropped her boy at school on time
    One less worry on her mind
    Now it's off to work and on the radio
    Come's an old familiar song
    And then the D.J.'s voice comes on
    And say's he's back in town tonight for one last show

    Her eyes well up with tears
    God could it be it's been ten years
    Since that Autumn night outside the county fair
    When two strangers shared a night
    And in the darkness found a light
    That to this day is still alive and burning there

    He asked her twice to come along
    They said good-bye at the break of dawn
    'Cause you can't hold back the wind
    If it's meant to be again
    Then someday he'll find his way back to her arms

    The marquee misspelled his name
    And not too many people came
    But that didn't matter to them
    They laughed and loved all through the night
    And as they faced the morning light
    They found themselves standing there again

    And he asked her twice to come along
    They said good-bye at the break of dawn
    As his bus left out she cried
    With him standing by her side
    That ol' wind had once again found its way home
    Someday he'll tell her about the money he hid
    And someday she'll tell him that the boy is his kid
    But for right now they're both in love
    The only thing they're thinkin' of
    Is that they're finally where their hearts have
    always been



    Rollin'

    She was born to a mother trucker
    Raised behind the wheel
    So you can blame it on the highway
    For the way she can't sit still
    She says life is like a windshield
    It ain't no rear view mirror
    The only way to get where you're goin'
    Is find that higher gear
    And keep it

    Rollin'
    Life's gonna run you over if you don't get goin'
    She said I wanna fell the earth move under me
    Movin' with the motion of a melody
    Oh I get the blues if the rhythm ain't got no soul
    You got to keep it
    Rollin'

    Well I knew that I was in trouble
    When she told me that talk was cheap
    Said if you're tired get on the sofa
    'Cause the bed's no place to sleep
    Then she reached down and she kissed
    Lord it knocked me on my knees
    And I knew if I was gonna get naked
    I was gonna have to roll up my sleeves
    And keep it
    Rollin'

    Love was gonna run me over if I didn't get it goin'
    She said I wanna feel the earth move under me
    Movin' with the motion of a melody
    Boy I get the blues if the rhythm ain't got no soul
    You got to keep it
    Rollin'

    So I talked her into gettin' married
    But she wouldn't hang up her wheels
    I was afraid I'd take a back seat
    To the way the highway feels
    But each day she's pullin' over
    More than she used to
    She knows love is like the highway
    The main thing you gotta do
    Is keep it rollin'



    The Change

    One hand
    Reaches out
    And pulls a lost soul from harm
    While a thousand more go unspoken for
    They say what good have you done
    By saving just this one
    It's like whispering a prayer
    In the fury of a storm

    And I hear them saying you'll never change things
    And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
    But it's not the world that I am changing
    I do this so this world will know
    That it will not change me

    This heart
    Still believes
    That love and mercy still exist
    While all the hatreds rage and so many say
    That love is all but pointless in madness such as
    this
    It's like trying to stop a fire
    With the moisture from a kiss

    And I hear them saying you'll never change things
    And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
    But it's not the world that I am changing
    I do this so this world will know
    That it will not change me

    As long as one heart still holds on
    Then hope is never really gone

    I hear them saying you'll never change things
    And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
    But it's not the world that I am changing
    I do this so this world we know
    Never changes me

    What I do is so
    This world will know
    That it will not change me



    The Beaches Of Cheyenne

    They packed up all his buckles
    And shipped his saddle to his dad
    And by the way the house looked
    She must have took it bad
    The workers come on Monday
    To fix the door and patch the wall
    They say she just went crazy
    The night she got the call

    He was up in Wyoming
    And drew a bull no man could ride
    He promised her he'd turn out
    Well it turned out that he lied
    And their dreams that they'd been livin'
    In the California sand
    Died right there beside him in Cheyenne

    They she just went crazy
    Screamin' out his name
    She ran out into the ocean
    And to this day they claim
    That if you go down by the water
    You'll see her footprints in the sand
    'Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne

    They never found her body
    Just her diary by her bed
    It told about the fight they had
    And the words that she had said
    When he told her he was ridin'
    She said then I don't give a damn
    If you never come back from Cheyenne

    They she just went crazy
    Screamin' out his name
    She ran out into the ocean
    And to this day they claim
    That you can go down by the water
    And see her footprints in the sand
    'Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne

    Nobody can explain it
    Some say she's still alive
    They even claim they've seen her
    On the shoreline late at night
    So if you go down by the water
    You'll see her footprints in the sand
    'Cause every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne

    Every night she walks the beaches of Cheyenne



    To Make You Feel My Love

    When the rain is blowing in your face
    And the whole world is on your case
    I could offer you a warm embrace
    To make you feel my love

    When the evening shadows and the star appear
    And there is no one to dry your tears
    I could hold you for a million years
    To make you feel my love

    I know you haven't made your mind up yet
    But I would never do you wrong
    I've known it from the moment that we met
    There's no doubt in my mind where you belong

    I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
    I'd go crawling down the avenue
    There ain't nothing that I wouldn't do
    To make you feel my love

    The storms are raging on rolling sea
    And on the highway of regret
    The winds of change are blowing wild and free
    You ain't seen nothing like me yet

    There ain't nothin' that I wouldn't do
    Go to the ends of the earth for you
    Make you happy make your dreams come true
    To make you feel my love



    It's Midnight Cinderella

    It's midnight Cinderella but don't you worry none
    'Cause I'm Peter Peter the Pumpkin Eater
    And the party's just begun

    I guess your prince charming
    Wasn't after all
    'Cause he sure seemed different right after the ball
    I guess more than horses are turnin' into rats
    And by the way he's walkin'
    I can guess where your slipper's at

    It's midnight Cinderella time that you should know
    There's gonna be some changes in the way this story
    goes
    It's midnight Cinderella but don't you worry none
    'Cause I'm Peter Peter the Pumkin Eater
    And the party's just begun

    I'm gonna help you get over
    Bein' under that spell
    You're gonna learn to love midnight
    Inside this pumpkin shell
    I gotta few new magic tricks
    Your godmother can't do
    I'll show you what it means to
    Bip, bip, bip, bip, boppity boo

    It's midnight Cinderella time that you should know
    There's gonna be some changes in the way this story
    goes
    It's midnight Cinderella but don't you worry none
    'Cause I'm Peter Peter the Pumkin Eater
    And the party's just begun

    I'm Peter Peter the Pumpkin Eater
    And the party has now begun



    She's Every Woman

    She's sun and rain, she's fire and ice
    A little crazy but it's nice
    And when she gets mad, you best leave her alone
    'Cause she'll rage just like a river
    Then she'll beg you to forgive her
    She's every woman that I've ever known

    She's so New York and then L.A.
    And every town along the way
    She's every place that I've never been
    She's makin love on rainy nights
    She's a stroll through Christmas lights
    And she's everything I want to do again

    It needs no explanation
    'Cause it all makes perfect sense
    For when it comes down to temptation
    She's on both sides of the fence

    No it needs no explanation
    'Cause it all makes perfect sense
    When it comes down to temptation
    She's on both sides of the fence

    She's anything but typical
    She's so unpredictable
    Oh but even at her worst it ain't that bad
    She's as real as real can be
    And she's every fantasy
    Lord she's every lover that I've ever had
    And she's every lover that I've never had



    Ireland

    They say mother earth is breathing
    With each wave that finds the shore
    Her soul rises in the evening
    For to open twilights door
    Her eyes are the stars in heaven
    Watching o'er us all the while
    And her heart it is in Ireland
    Deep within the Emerald Isle

    We are forty against hundreds
    In someone elses bloody war
    We know not why were fighting
    Or what we're dying for
    They will storm us in the morning
    When the sunlight turns to sky
    Death is waiting for its dance now
    Fate has sentenced us to die

    Ireland I am coming home
    I can see your rolling fields of green
    And fences made of stone
    I am reaching out won't you take my hand
    I'm coming home Ireland

    Oh the captian he lay bleeding
    I can hear him calling me
    These men are yours now for the leading
    Show them to their destiny
    And as I look up all around me
    I see the ragged tired and torn
    I tell them to make ready
    'Cause we're not waiting for the morn

    Ireland I am coming home
    I can see your rolling fields of green
    And fences made of stone
    I am reaching out won't you take my hand
    I'm coming home Ireland

    Now the fog is deep and heavy
    As we forge the dark and fear
    We can hear their horses breathing
    As in silence we draw near
    There are no words to be spoken
    Just a look to say good-bye
    I draw a breath and night is broken
    AsI scream our battle cry

    Ireland I am coming home
    I can see your rolling fields of green
    And fences made of stone
    I am reaching out won't you take my hand
    I'm coming home Ireland

    I am home Ireland
