Track Name: The Rooftop
On the Rooftop by the freight line,
whiskey bottle all in my hand
thinking about the last time
I almost made it then.

A long dream that I kept,
To ride that rolling steal,
I think about it as I slept,
how that time did feel.

What's holding me back,
from this dream of mine,
what are the things I lack,
to jump down the line.

I work hard in the city,
work all through night,
living like this surly will kill me
it just don't seem right.

on the Rooftop by the freight line,
empty bottle in my hand
thinking about the last time
almost made it then,
thinking about the last time
might try again.
Track Name: Ten More Miles
well I'm waiting
down at the station
hope my bus gets here on time
take me to my destination
take me home and easy my worried mind

I've got ten more miles left to go
then another three hour ride ahead
ten more miles left to go
before I can rest on my own bed

It's raining it's pouring at the depot
the puddles all gather all around
"hey mister bus driver come on let's go
I wanna bid goodbye to this lonesome town"

Well the mill towns and the cities drift behind me
As down the highway I do roll
I'm floating along like a fish in the sea
can't wait to get back home
Track Name: I Want To Go
I want to go, I want to get out of here, I want to go, and hit the road.

What I need is a change of scene
go some place I've never been
don't need to be all that far away
just something I don't get every day

when I left work was in the middle of the night
you were waiting with a plan that seemed right
drive to the coast we're going to watch the sun rise
daylight come there ain't no sleeping in these eyes
Track Name: Drunkards Dance
I reek like booze, and I'm bound to bound to lose
all that whiskey courses through my veins,
Like a still I smell, and I'm bound for Hell.
You know this time I think I'm going to lose my brain

well my lucks been bad and this bottles all I've had
well that good rye whiskey it's so sweet and smooth
ain't no friend by my side no place I can go and hide
for this rough soul I'm just trying to soothe

my legs are weak and I can barely speak
that room is spinning right in front of my eyes
those street lights shine and I'm out of time
like to get home before that lights up in the sky

By the end of the night I must get right
I'm walking home when I'm leaving here
All my whiskeys gone and I've sang all my songs
What's happening ain't always so clear
Track Name: Railroad Bridge
I'm down by that railroad bridge
got that sun a sinking low
I stand by the river and watch it flow by
I've got not place to go

I've got not place to go, I've got not place to go,
Stand by that river and watch it roll by, I've got no place to go

I'm down by the bus depot,
with a suitcase in my hand
and a twenty dollar bill in my pocket
I'll go where ever I can

I'll go where ever I can, I'll go where ever I can,
twenty dollar bill in my pocket and I'll go where ever I can

Nightfall on the city
I'm on my old red bike
I can ride all night long,
And go where I like

I'll go where I like, I'll go anywhere I like,
I can ride all night long, gonna go where ever I like
Track Name: Bottle
The apartment was silent and empty,
everyone gone on their separate way.
Alone I stand in the kitchen
trying to forget about my day

Here's another bottle of whiskey,
Here's another night gone wrong
Here's another bottle whiskey
And I wonder where everyone has gone

Now I stand in that doorway
Smoke my last rolled cigarette,
all alone in that apartment
just filled with sadness and regret.

Here's to the ones that will see me
when the daylight sun shines bright
here's hoping that the devil don't come knocking
and I'm going to make it through another night

All around it's so damn silent
windows are inky black
every time I look out at them
All I see if my own face staring back

here's another bottle of whiskey
here's another night gone wrong
Here's another bottle of whiskey
and I wonder where everyone has gone
and I wonder where everything has gone
and I wonder where all my friends have gone
Track Name: Late At Night My Darlin'
It's late at night my darling,
it's late at night my dear,
it's late at night my darling
I wish that you were here

The moon is caught high in the branches
someone must set it free
it's casts a pale a hollow glow
through the window down on my

It's late at night my darling
it's late at night my dear
it's late at night my darling
I wish that you were near
