Track Name: When She's Walking By Your Side
When She's Walking Buy Your Side/

You can't remember a time- When she wasn't by your side- You can't remember a place- Where you couldn't feel it inside
Yea maybe there's a way You could put it into words It should be easy to explain- It's just a boy and girl-

Something happens when she walks into the room
It's in her eyes-its in her smile -in the smell of that perfume


Don't the lights shine much brighter when she's walking by your side Don't the stars look like diamonds when she's walking by your side-


Sometimes you can't understand How it ended up this way
Something this good Doesn't come everyday
Yea maybe there's a way You could put it into words
It should be easy to explain- It's just a boy and girl-
Track Name: I've Been On My Knees
I’ve Been On My Knees

Take the fall
hit the ground
I don't care how far down
I’ve been on my knees-
I've been on my knees
the days are dark
the nights are long no one but me
can see whats' wrong
I've been on my knees I've been on my knees

I'm not begging for forgiveness
I'm not looking for redemption
Cause i''m running out of time
Another drink-
through splintered glass
you can't escape anything in your past
I end up on my knees- I've been on my knees


I'm not screaming for attention
I lost my voice years ago
And all I feel is apprehension
Am D it never feels like letting go
Finish out- that cigarette
And let it steal- your last dying breath
Track Name: It All Falls Down On Me
(It all falls)Down on Me

Black ice- you never see it coming
It knocks you right off of your feet
So nice- the way she leaves you breathless
Your heart is always skipping a beat
Like a vision in a movie- a pretty little angel
Something from a fashion magazine
Gets your motor running- can’t you hear it humming
Everytime she walks down the street

She keeps me waiting just a little while longer
She keeps me waiting and the feelings getting stronger She keeps me waiting and don’t think I can hold on at all

(when her love comes) down on me It all falls- around me
It all comes- down on me
I can put my finger on it
Can’t wrap my heart around it

So nice- that pretty little smile
shining from the corners of her eyes
Like a long legged highway- wish that she’d walk my way
Wanna take her out for a ride
The way she turns her head -the things you wish you said
You’re pinning every hope on your sleeve
But you just can’t stop it - keep her picture in a locket
but you know you’ll end up down on your knees-
Track Name: Handful of Rain
She ran hard out of Louisiana
she let her hair fly back in the breeze Her eyes were steel grey diamonds That could bring you to your knees Somewhere out on 61
She needed shelter from the storm
We were lost as wind did blow around us We kept each other warm-


But there was to much road debris
Getting in our way
I should have known as the miles drifted by
She wasn't gonna stay

Now all I've got is a handful of rain-
All I've got is a handful of rain
All I've got is a handful of rain- to wash away my tears
She used to love a guy from near Lake Charles The kinda love that hit her hard
There was always something behind her smile She never showed all her cards-
She loved to drop the top down
And let the sun change her skin
But no matter how hot it got outside There was something burning more within


When the rains cut through that summer night It ran the colors from her dress
And the dreams she had all washed away
And she felt like nothing was left
I don't know why i let her walk away
I never thought she would really go
The things that kept on pulling her back
Are the things I'll never know------
Track Name: Rafferty Train
Rafferty Train
C9-Am7
He’s has a ticket- and looks across the tracks He’s got no direction- but he’s never turning back
F Em Dm Em
There’s some one on the train, heading for the same place-
He’ll see it in her eyes- He’ll know it on her face
F (come up with passing chord) G——C9-Am7
And he slides into a seat- On the train to Rafferty- On the Rafferty train-
There’s a story- In a movie that she saw
About a place she could run to, but she never knew how far-
She has a romance novel- in the bottom of her purse- She never thought her life could go from bad to worse And she finds herself a seat- On the train to Rafferty-
Bridge
Fmaj9 G6 And the train starts moving- down the line Leaving everyone’s past behind
Don’t know what you’re going to find
FEmDm G
But it’s gonna be different- different - this time it’s gonna be different -
They take the tickets- and they roll on down the track The same direction- No one’s ever turning back
There’s some one on the train, heading for the same place-
They’ll see it in their eyes- They’ll know it on their face
They’re sharing the same seat- On the train to Rafferty- On the Rafferty train-
Track Name: Baby Put A Dress On
Baby Put a Dress On

C’mon get ready-It’s Friday night
Been working all week long and time is tight
I cashed my paycheck-filled up the tank
Roll down the windows girl and let the music crank
Bridge:
There’s a place by the highway where a band is playing all night long-
Don’t be a wallflower don’t you keep me waiting here to long-

Yea- baby put a dress on - fix your hair up pretty
We’re going to a party at the Firecracker Lounge
I’m gonna drink some whisky-shoot a few tequilas
Put a dollar in the jukebox and spin you all around
You can bring your sister-and her girlfriends
You know a night like this should never end
Tell your mama- not to wait
She needs her beauty rest-she shouldn’t stay up late
Track Name: Wound Up Woman
Wound-Up Woman

She jumps behind the wheel of a black El Camino
Jams an 8-track tape in the slot
It runs a little funny-she donʼt want to spend the money E (HIT)
To fix the brakes and the body rot
She bought it from the local funeral parlor
With a check and an I.O.U.
She pays off her Visa with her Master Card
And the rent comes two months due
Sheʼs a wound up woman turn the sound up woman
You know itʼs gonna be alright
Sheʼs a wound up woman turn the sound up woman
Somethingʼs gonna happen baby cause itʼs Saturday night
Sheʼs running through the trailer park-lookinʼ for some Aqua-Net
She wantʼs to tease up her hair
Squeeze into a mini-skirt, lookinʼ like a little flirt
Her fishnets have got a tear
She wants to work as a waitress at the Hooters bar But the boss says sheʼs way too old
A little dabʼll do ya- but the clock is gonna screw ya
When you still want to rock and roll

She gave up looking for her own prince charming so many years ago
In & out of every honky tonk in town -kissing her share of toads
There was Tommy at the bakery, Billy at the factory She left them both singinʼ the blues
Every drive by trucker turns into a sucker
And her nameʼs on a hundred tatoos
You canʼt pin her down when sheʼs on the town- Sheʼs up until the evening ends
And every weekend night in a dress so tight
Sheʼs gonna do it over again
Track Name: Someone Else's Dream
Well I don’t know what I’m trying to find -When all I’ve done is lost my way

And I can’t seem to say the right things-And there really isn’t anything to say
And I never kept track of time-Cause you can’t shake the hands of a clock And all the weight that I have on my mind-Are all the things you never can drop

And the late winter wind feels cold as ice
And summers not as close as it seemed
And I feel like I’ve gotten lost In someone else's dream
Yea I feel like I’ve lost my way in someone else's dream

They said the road that lay ahead-was full of things I should learn to fear Now I watch them fade away-I’m still standing here
And I try hard to forget-All the things that they made me learn
All the words and all the pages- were in those books that I should've burned
Track Name: Rockin' In The Moonlight
Rockin' in the Moonlight

Baby can you hear me- thrown' stones at your window
Baby can you hear me- lightly tappin' on your door
I so enjoyed the dance we had together
Now i'm standing in the moonlight praying' for something so much more

I stole away and I danced with you - on the floor it was just us two
You made a promise that later that night that we'd go
Rockin in the moonlight- Rockin in the moonlight
Rockin in the moonlight- Rockin in the moonlight
You couldn't get away from the boy that you came with
I couldn't get away from the girl I brought there too
I dropped her off and I left her at her front door
Now I'm standing in the moonlight praying' for something so much more
So angel don't you leave me here tonight- the night's so clear & the moon is just right
All it's gonna take is a step outside and we'll go-
Rockin in the moonlight- Rockin in the moonlight Rockin in the moonlight- Rockin in the moonlight
Track Name: Former Femmes Fatales And Romeos
She keeps her lingerie all tucked away in the back of her dresser drawer
No need for it to see the light of day- she doesn’t use it anymore
He falls down hard on a lazyboy, cracks a beer with the TV on

A few more drinks and he drifts away-and another night is gone Am-Em
Watch it all fade away- Watch it all fade away
She sneaks a drink in the laundry room by 10-the kids are smok- ing dope in the yard
The bills stack up three months unpaid-how did life ever get so hard
Watch it all fade away- Watch it all fade to gray-

For former femme fetales and romeos-that’s how life is that’s how life goes

For former femme fetales and romeos-that’s how life is that’s how life goes
Femme fetales and Romeos

He almost has a heartattack running for the train-Getting to a job he can’t stand
It’s funny how the way things all turned out- wasn’t what they both had planned
Watch it all fade away- Watch it all fade to gray-
