Track Name: Reach The Other Side
When We Reach the Other Side

B/A- A E
Somebody run me like a river-Somebody roll me like a stone
Somebody kiss me like a lover on a cool autumn night under a full moon’s glow



Somebody burn me like a candle-Somebody spin me like a wheel
Somebody show me a road to ramble-& I’ll pack up my bags & turn on my heels


Bridge/Chorus-
D-A
If you you really wanna take a chance girl-All you gotta do is put your hand in mine
Walk away from all your troubles and your worries-
E
It’ll all work out when we reach the other side-
It’ll all work out when we reach the other side-

Somebody sip me like a fine wine- Somebody give me a second chance
Somebody put some minutes on the clock-cause if I can- I wanna try and make the night last


Bridge/Chorus-
I can see that you wanna be with me-I can see that you wanna take a ride
Don’t look back on all your troubles and your worries-
It’ll all work out when we reach the other side-
It’ll all work out when we reach the other side-

Instrumental


Bridge/Chorus-
If you you really wanna take a chance girl-All you gotta do is put your hand in mine
Walk away from all your troubles and your worries-
It’ll all work out when we reach the other side-
It’ll all work out when we reach the other side-


Somebody run me like a river-Somebody roll me like a stone
Somebody kiss me like a lover on a cool autumn when the moon is really glowin’
Track Name: She Doesn't Know
D-C vamp
She don’t know anything anymore-she used to be so self-assured
She never put anyone above him-now she don’t know if she ever loved him
She doesn’t know- No- She Doesn’t know anymore

She doesn’t know how it got this way- It falls apart now everyday
And everything comes off the tracks-and she can’t get that feeling back
She doesn’t know- No- She Doesn’t know anymore
She doesn’t know- No- She Doesn’t know anymore

G-C
She liies awake- all night long -
nothing’s righ and it just feels wrong
He calls her name -she don’t hear a thing
He used to make her bells ring-
A
She doesn’t know

She tries not to make a sound- she tries to wrap her arms around
Anything she can hold onto- She’s not sure if she really wants to-
She doesn’t know- No- She Doesn’t know anymore
She doesn’t know- No- She Doesn’t know anymore

Sometimes when she sees thru the haze-she remembers those other days
Now she doesn’t understand-how she let it slip out of her hands
No she doesn’t know

Solo

She liies awake- all night long -
nothing’s righ and it just feels wrong
He calls her name -she don’t hear a thing
He used to make her bells ring-
She doesn’t know

he don’t know anything anymore-she used to be so self-assured
She never put anyone above him-now she don’t know if she ever loved him
She doesn’t know- No- She Doesn’t know anymore
She doesn’t know- No- She Doesn’t know anymore
She doesn’t know- No- She Doesn’t know anymore
She doesn’t know- No- She Doesn’t know anymore
Track Name: Down In Flames
G----
She hurries- She slides the suitcase away before he comes
C------F C G
upstairs- cause he wouldn’t understand

She worries-She checks the children and she holds them for a while-cause it always makes her smile

Bm Am C D
She turns east, he stays west
Bm Am C D
They both know they’ve put it to the test

Chorus:
G C D
They don’t even share a name
They don’t even see things the same
They just let it all go down in flames
They got no one but themselves to blame

He reaches-he tries to find the right words -that might help to hide the scars-but he never gets that far

They both realize-They stopped thinking ‘bout each other such a long time ago-but they never let it show

And every thing they used to share
Is torn and frayed and can never be repaired

Chorus

Instrumental
G----(Vamp 4x)
C------F C G
G-----(Vamp 1x)

Bm Am C D
And every thing they used to share
Bm Am C D
Falls apart and there’s nothing to repair

Chorus

Ending:
G- C- D
G--------(Vamp 3x)
Track Name: Trying Such A Long Long Time
D
I’ve been trying- Just walking through the night
But I don’t know these streets-It just doesn’t feel right
Em G
I’ve been lost and I’ve been found- I gotta stand my ground
A-A D
And I’ve keep searching- for such along time

We’ve been hiding-way too long
From each other -cause we thought it was so wrong
And I can’t close my eyes at night - Girl it feels so right
And I keep crying-And I keep it inside


G D
I’ve Been Trying Such a long long time
G D-
Trying such a long long time
G D
trying such a long long time
Em A
Baby take my hand - try to understand

I try to make ends meet- but that don’t turn out so good
And the shoes on my feet -don’t hold the ground like they should
You and me we found each other-Now we gotta face each other
And stop running- from what we both need-

I’ve Trying Such a long long time-
Trying such a long long time
trying such a long long time
Baby take my hand - I wanna be your man

Track Name: And It Feels Like Chains
G-C-D
She fell easy- She fell hard
It came crashing down around her like a house of cards
Now she goes walking down by the river everyday-

Em7- C9-D
Em7- C9-D

Chorus-
C G
And she can't do a thing about it-
C D
Cause she got the ring of another man
C G
And she can't do a thing about it-
C D
Cause she got the ring of another man holding her down-
G
And it feels like chains-
C G
It feels like a link in a long cold chain
C
And it feels like chains
G Em
A cold hard chain-and she can't break free- no she can't
Am D
break free-

Verse 2
There was something in his smile-In the touch of his hand
Something she hadn't felt in years and couldn't understand
Now the things she used to know are so far away-
Track Name: Rearview Mirror
E-A
She went outside- and took the car for a ride
She never looked back-She never once looked behind
A
She took a turn down a one-way street-She couldn’t turn back now
E-Asus
She put her foot down- and she hit the road
A-B
Something insde of her said it was time- She had to get out and she made up her mind


E-Asus
She bought some used clothes- In a church thrift store
She dyed her hair blonde- It wasn’t brown anymore
A-B
Something inside of her said it was time- She had to get out and she made up her mind

E-A
She sees it all- In her rearview mirror
Yea she’s sees it all – as it fades from view
She sees it all- In her rearview mirror
She sees it all- as it fades from view.
DRUMS BACK DOWN-SIDE STICK
E-A
She started thinking-about using her maiden name
He’s waking up now- thinking things are still the same
A
She’s already across the state line
He rolls over thinking things are just fine
E-A
She put her foot down- on a love gone cold

A-B
Something insIde of her said it was time- She had to get out and she made up her mind


E-A
She sees it all- In her rearview mirror
Yea she’s sees it all – as it fades from view
She sees it all- In her rearview mirror
She sees it all- as it fades from view.


A-B
The man she left behind- the love she thought she’d fine
It took took so long but she’s making up her mind
Track Name: If There's Nothing Left
D-F#m-Bm-G-A
You don’t need- any writing on the wall
The silence is so loud- you can hear it roar
You don’t need to watch the shadows fall
Bb-A
It’s getting colder with every passing hour

D-F#m-Bm-G-A
You don’t need-to leave a porch light burnin’ all night long
You know, I’ll always find a way to get along
You don’t need to find a way to say goodbye
Bb-A
It’s easy just to walk away and leave it all behind

G-A
Don’t stand there trying thing of something to say
Don’t sit there lying to yourself there’s away
I keep hoping there’s something we can do-

D-Bm-G-A
If there’s nothing left, there’s nothing right
About us staying together- one more night
If there’s nothing left, there’s nothing right
Bb-A
About us staying together- In this house one more night.

D-F#m-Bm-G-A
All my things- Are packed in these two bags
Anything I left behind don’t mean a thing to me no more
I’ll lock the door- You turn out the light
Bb-A
And I’ll just walk away- there’s nothing left for us to say-

G-A
Don’t stand there trying thing of something to say
Don’t sit there lying to yourself there’s away
I keep hoping there’s something we can do-

D-F#m-Bm-G-A
If there’s nothing left, there’s nothing right
About us staying together- one more night
If there’s nothing left, there’s nothing right
Bb-A
About us staying together- In this house one more night.
Track Name: Tied To The Tracks Of Your Love
Verse 1
E G-A
I met you downtown on the lower Eastside
E D-A
Pawning your engagement ring
E G-A
I should have recognized all the danger signs
E D-A
I should have heard the warning bells ring
B
All my friends tell me you're like a runaway train

Verse 2
E G-A
I went uptown to our neighborhood
E D-A
Hoping you would come back home.
E G-A
I waited at the station till the sun went down
E D-A
and spent a cold night alone

B
all my friends tell me I have been acting insane

Chorus
E A
I've been tied to the tracks of your love
E A
tied to the tracks of your love
E A
So so tied to the tracks of your love
B C B E
I got to break out of these chains before the train comes rollin down the line

Verse 3
You're like a rush-hour train coming off the rails
a breakneck glove that's destined to fail
I'm on a one-way ticket to a broken heart
something's gotta give before I end up torn apart

All my friends tell me you're like a runaway train

Chorus
