Track Name: True Country
TRUE COUNTRY

Booked a trip down to Nashville, Tennessee
To find my southern roots and drink the Yankee out of me
Stopped in a honky tonk to spend my dime
There I met an Old timer who shared these words over wine...

He said “So you think you can't be country” ..............

unless you carry a shotgun in your car
and have an unpaid tab at the local bar
and seven long necks are chilling in the fridge
and you've got your second cousin for a date
Pay your bills 91 days late
and have a Gal who airs your laundry on the line
and you've got 10 maxed out credit cards
and a rusted tractor in the yard
but if you want to be true country son it's just a state of mind

-------solo over chorus section -------

So I went back up to Boston feeling good
With a bottle of Rebel Yell, a straight six under my hood.
I polished my B Bender to a shine
but I won't forget that old timer’s words he shared over wine..

He said “so you think you can't be country .....
unless you carry a shotgun in your car
and have an unpaid tab at the local bar
and seven long necks are chilling in the fridge
and you've got your second cousin for a date
Pay your bills 91 days late
and have a Gal who airs your laundry on the line
You like drinkin’ brown booze, smoking grass
shooting at street signs as you pass
and making bets on lucky number nine
you've got 10 maxed out credit cards
and a rusted tractor in the yard
but if you want to be true country it's just a state of mind

solo over verse up to - chorus

He said “so you think you can't be country ..... (stop)
unless you carry a shotgun in your car
and have an unpaid tab at the local bar
and seven long necks are chilling in the fridge
and you've got your second cousin for a date
Pay your bills 91 days late
and have a Gal who airs your laundry on the line
and you've got 10 maxed out credit cards
and a rusted tractor in the yard
but if you want to be true country son it's just a state of mind
Yeah if you want to be true country Son it's just a state of mind.

Track Name: Bushwacked
BUSHWACKED



Bushwacked down in santa fe
Locked up on on a holiday
been down but never out
flat broke without a doubt

walking down a dusty road
searching for my pot of gold
tracking down a faded lead
give it up or we’ll make you bleed

Hands in the Air
Keep them where...we can see them

packing heat at the local dive
bullet rye and a 45
big mouth punk wet our appetite
roll it out, we’re gonna fight

Hands in the Air Keep them where...we can see them
SOLO-over slow riff to double time - 3x hands in the air …..

nitty . gritty short on sleep
we only take what we’re gonna keep
oulaws are back in town
road blocks we’ll run them down


Chem Dog is never brown
sleestack will turn you round
G-13 will make you bright./ ..er?
hammer down brass lighter
Hands in the Air
Hands in the Air
UP in the Air
Keep them where we can see them
Track Name: BOPO Train
Woke up on the wrong side of the BOPO Train
Lost my balance on the high speed lane
reckless words got the best of me
Now my baby done set me free

That's why I'm in a mission to cure my condition
With a little wine and a hit of green
That's why I'm on a mission to fix my condition
With a little time , maybe a shot of Beam

Fighting with a lady , you'll never win
She's cataloged your every sin
she'll wear you down with steel blue eyes
Because it's too late to apologize

That's why I'm in a mission to cure my condition
With a little wine and a hit of green
That's why I'm on a mission to fix my condition
With a little time , maybe a shot of Beam

I get a little squirrely about half past ten
Think about boarding the train again
Ride all night straight thru the day
With Johnny, Jack , Jimmy and Jose

That's why I'm in a mission to cure my condition
With a little wine and a hit of green
That's why I'm on a mission to fix my condition
With a little time , maybe a shot of Beam

Track Name: My Favorite Company
my favorite company

I asked you for your heart
Promised to always be true
If there's one thing in this world you can count on
It's me lovin' you

Just can't get enough
I'm hooked on that Cherry wine
One touch of your hand and I crumble ___
everytime

Cause you're the best thing
That's ever happened to me
with this ring
Know you'll always be – my favorite company

My number one partner in crime
everything I dreamed of and more
if there's one thing in this world you can count on
it's me - at your door

Faithful as a southern breeze
I'll always be your candy man
I'll stick by your side till the heavens collide
that's my plan


Cause you're the best thing
That's ever happened to me
with this ring
Know you'll always be – my favorite company


I asked you for your heart
Promised to always be true
If there's one thing in this world you can count on
It's me lovin' you
Track Name: 1209
1209 aka 12:09

My Feet beat the street
I’m hoofin’ it down the line
just got a call from an old friend of mine
she said - why don’t we meet together just one more time
cause the moon is high and it’s midnight in the pines

but I didn’t show
my conscience wore me down
how could I go
and drive my lovin’ underground
you say - how would she know
well I live in a small town
and a woman can tell when you’ve been creepin around

gossip is like a thief
robbing you in the night
the only way to shut it down is by turning on the light
its a crooked deal
and one that don’t sit right
so I’m back in my tracks
callin’ it a night

no I didn’t show
my conscience wore me down
how could I go
and drive my lovin’ underground
you say - how would she know
well I live in a small town
and a woman can tell when you’ve been creepin around

now my Feet beat the street
I’m hoofin’ it back down that line
just trying to make it home before that girlfriend of mine
its a crooked deal but one that worked out fine
cause I’m almost home and it’s only 1209
yeah I’m almost home and it’s only 1209
I’m almost home and I got lovin on my mind

Track Name: Sturdy
STURDY
I see you every Friday night
dancing underneath the light
dreaming of what we can do
if I only could get close to you


I can see you like to boom boom boom
by watching you across the room
I have bad things on my mind
dance close enough
and you’ll find that I'm sturdy -
sturdy is my love for you...x3
and is nothing that I'd rather do than be with you baby -- with you baby

now that your friends have left you all alone
I’d really love to show you home
dreaming of what we can do
if I only could get close to you
you’ll find that I'm sturdy - yeah - sturdy -yeah


my love ….
sturdy is my love for you
sturdy is my love for you and is nothing that I'd rather do than be with you baby


- My love
my love is sturdy - for you -and there’s nothin that I’d rather do …... than be with you (three hits end)
Track Name: Vodka Soda
All day at the Beach
Stripers out of reach
But I'm not wasting time
Just baiting my line
without a Vodka Soda

All day in the sun
is good for everyone
But I'm not wasting time - just baiting my line without a
Vodka Soda
Yeah Yeah Yeah

All day at the Beach
Stripers out of reach - yeah
But I'm not wasting time
Drinking Rose wine ...
Bring me a Slice of Lime
And a Vodka Soda.


I'm not wasting time.....with out a Vodka Soda
