Track Name: Twilight
C-G-Am-F, C-G-F-C
She lets down her hair, and takes off her aprin
She strips off her makeup and turns on the TV
It’s just her and the kids now since the army took her husband
Was all she could do just to keep from losing herself

G-G7-F-G, G-G7-F-G7
She buries the hurting as long as she’s working and keeping the heartache at bay
She carries that feeling with no time for healing open wounds won’t go away

C-Dm7-Fmaj7-G7x2
And it’s twilight in this town, twilight in this town
Well it’s twilight in this town, it’s twilight and it used to be morning all day

They Closed down the Saw mill, moved it all to China
Tore it down and built a WalMart that pays ¼ what the mill used to
They boarded up mainstreet and put up a new MacDonalds
She took a job slinging whisky and beer at some redneck bar

She thinks about leaving, the drinking, and the stinkin’ foul whiskey smellin’, smoky air
She keeps on believing the money she’s making is the best she can do anywhere

Chorus

Bb-C-G Bb-Dm7-G7
She gets up every morning at 6 O’clock yawning to get all the kids off to school
She dreams about a better day a man that won’t run away and won’t make her feel like a fool

Chorus
Track Name: Wheels
1 4 1 4 1 4 6m 5 4
She was lighting up the pool table in that dim and worn out bar
Knockin every shot down, tearin everything apart
In a last call game of eight ball, 2 games down I put up my car
She took my ride and she won the keys to my heart

1 4 1 4 1 4 6m 5 4
She was a 78 Camaro I built up from the ground
4 barrel, 4 on the floor, the fastest in this town
She was the kinda beauty that makes a man feel weak
When I lost her, I lost a piece of me...Lost a piece of me

A D A F#m E, A D F# Bm7 C#m7 D
Baby Turn your Wheels back to me
She was a 78, perfect shape, the best I’d ever seen
She’d still be mine, if I could cheat time
Just let my love set you free, point your wheels back to me

I was lost and alone all I could do was stare
Then I heard that big block winding down, and I saw her sitting there
She said, “I bet the stars look pretty under these T-Tops tonight”
baby climb on in 3and hang on tight....Hang on tight.

Baby Turn your Wheels back to me
Born in 78, perfect shape, the best I’d ever seen
She’d still be mine, if I could cheat time
Just let my love set you free, point your wheels back to me

F#m E A D Bm7 C#m7 D E11
Bridge/Lead
Wough..oh...oh oh..Darlin Don’t let me go.. 33

She’s still out there on the edge, waiting for the winter thaw
I still hear tales of her adventures from wayward truckers and outlaws
That sweet 78 with the hourglass shape, She was once mine
But ya know everything comes back around in time...comes back in time

Chorus
Track Name: Forget About You
Rolled into town about 7pm lord I thought this day was never gonna end
Pulled into a Honkey Tonk Bar around the bend
They Serve em up strong ‘round here she said,
I could feel a cold stare on the back of my head
I turned around to a beer from my new friend

(Chorus) D-A-G-E.....A
Said I’m gonna have fun tonight
Pretty Mamma’s gonna make me feel aright
I got something to help me make it through
and Forget About You!!

Well I rolled on down to Memphis town, parked the rig, bought a bottle of CROWN
Hopin I could drink your memory off my mind
Had the Mississippi River to my back, my face in the wind and my feet on the tracks
Gonna find a country girl to help me to unwind

Said I’m gonna have fun tonight
Pretty Mama’s gonna make me feel alright
I got someone to help me make it through
and Forget About You, Forget About You

(Solo)

I rolled all across this land, from Laredo up to Michigan
Georgia, California to Oregon
Well I drove that rig to pay the rent , nearly killed myself for the money you spent
Darlin our love has set just like the Sun

Said I’m gonna have fun tonight
Pretty Mama’s gonna make me feel alright
I got someone to help me make it through.....
Said I’m gonna have fun tonight
Pretty Mama’s gonna make me feel alight
I got something to help me make it through
and Forget about You. Forget about you. Forget about you
Forget about You......
Track Name: Take The Bottle
Came home from NAM in November of 72 nobody was around no more i wanted to talk to
so I roamed around for a for a while then I headed down south to try to wash the taste of blood out of my mouth
Ended up in Texas in the spring of 73 fell for a southern bell when she cast her eyes at me
so we settled down in Houston town to raise a family but the nightmares drove me to the bottle and the bottle drove my girl from me

Cause it takes time for you to learn to be a man
and it can take a lifetime for you to ever find true love again so
Take the bottle from my hand

Moved on to another town as another year rolled by heard tales of fortune waiting where the mountains meet the sky
So I drove up to the north country in the Summer of 75 to see if I could find a reason to stay alive
Hired on the pipeline the work was hard and it eased my mind by the time the work was done I was feelin fine
So I bought some land in Livengood where I could make a home built a cabin with my own 2 hands but a man ain’t meant to live alone

Cause it takes time for you to learn to be a man
and it can take a lifetime for you to ever find your peace again so
Take the Bottle from my hand

(Em, D/F#, G-C, Bm7, Am7, D7)
But that was years ago before I met my wife
She helped me shake the bottle and I know she saved my life

Gazing at the Northern Lights as I strum this old guitar ya know my favorite fishing hole isn’t very far
In the summertime there’s warm sunshine and in the wintertime it’s cold
and I still dream a young man’s dreams, and I don’t mind growing old

Cause it takes time for you to learn to be a man
and it can take a lifetime for you to ever come this way again so
Take the Bottle from my hand.....Take the Bottle From My Hand

Track Name: Not Impressed
LAST NIGHT IN A WHISKY DREAM
THE DEVIL TEMPTED ME WITH PARADISE
SHOWED ME A MOUNTAIN MADE OF GOLD, BET MY SOUL
AND CLIMB IT N’ IT WAS MINE
HE SPIT FIRE as I got TO THE TOP
SMILIN’ DOWN’ I YELLED OUT LOUD IS THIS THE BEST YOU’VE GOT
 
CAUSE I KNOW A MOUNTAIN
THAT I’M STILL CLIMBIN’
I KEEP TRYIN’
BUT I’M NOT OVER HER YET
IT KEEPS GETTING HIGHER
WHEN I THINK ABOUT HER
AND I CAN’T FORGET HER
SO DEVIL SAVE YOUR BREATH
IF YOU CALL THIS A MOUNTAIN
I’M NOT IMPRESSED

THE MOUNTAIN CRUMBLED AND TURNED TO DUST
I HEARD HIM SWEAR AND CUSS AS I FELL
A CRYSTAL CANYON SWALLOWED ME
SO DEEP I COULD FEEL THE FLAMES OF HELL
HE THREW HIS PITCHFORK AT ME as I got TO THE TOP
SMILIN’ DOWN I YELLED OUT LOUD IS THIS THE BEST YOU’VE GOT
 
CAUSE I KNOW A CANYON
WHERE SHE LEFT ME STANDIN
I’M STLL STRANDED
I HAVEN’T CRAWLED OUT YET
IT KEEPS GETTING DEEPER
WHEN I THINK ABOUT HER
AND I CAN’T FORGET HER
SO DEVIL SAVE YOUR BREATH
IF YOU CALL THIS A CANYON I’M NOT IMPRESSED
 
BRIDGE- Am D7 C CD G C A Fmaj7 D7
MOLTEN LAVA OOZED UP FROM THE GROUND
AS FIERY DEMONS TRIED TO HOLD ME DOWN
BUT I threw THEM OFF LAUGHED AND SHOOK MY HEAD
SATAN’S HORNS WERE SHAKIN’ WHEN I STOOD UP AND SAID
 
I KNOW A HELL
WHERE I’VE SENT MYSELF
NO PRAYERS WILL HELP
I’M AS DAMNED AS I CAN GET
IT KEEPS GETTING HOTTER
WHEN I THINK ABOUT HER
AND I CAN’T FORGET HER
SO DEVIL SAVE YOUR BREATH
IF YOU CALL THIS HELL
I’M NOT IMPRESSED
 
LAST NIGHT IN A WHISKEY DREAM THE DEVIL TEMPTED ME WITH PARADISE
Track Name: Anchortown
F-CX2-F-Am-Dm-GX2
Another dreary morning buckets of snow still fallin 6 months into a cold hard winter I feel the summer calling
Costa Rica is looking good to me margaritas a longboard and the sea
stick my feet in the sand, fun in the Sun, bonita senorita’s for me

C-F-Am-F#m7-5-Dm-G7
Oh baby I gotta go get outta the darkness outta the snow
Oh, I ain’t gonna hang around anchored down in Anchortown

Fresh snow is on the mountains it’s mid July but who’s counting
with the cold and the rain, I have to complain this summer is best forgotten
I got a perfect remedy, we’ll hit the waves on a trip down to Fiji
find a quiet lagoon, sleep until noon, in a hut right on the sea

Chorus

F-Am-C-E7-Am-G-F-D7-G7
Got to get out of this town turn this darkness upside down
Oh little darlin, We can make this world spin Round...

Track Name: Copenhagen Town
E-C#m-Asus2-Asus2/F#-Asus2-E-Bsus2
Baby it’s so clear to me I can see it coming down, I been keepin and eye on everything from Copenhagen town tryin’a make a great escape but I can seem to wrap my head around how I broke down

Baby I’ve been gone too long so far from our home this place ain’t got no internet, no satellite or phone try to touch base when I can I curse myself for leaving you alone, yea all alone

A-E-C#m-Bsus2-Asus2-Asus2/F#-Bsus2-E
Well I ride these buses and the Train and I walk these streets in the freezing rain but I won’t let the darkness hold me down...
Cause I’m coming home from Copenhagen town

Baby I’m so scared today, the dollar’s going down the money that i’m makin here is nothing in this town. the drunks don’t seem to pay no mind it’s suites me fine, cause I feel like a clown, like a clown

Baby I know the price of fuel back home keeps going up, Maybe you can buy some food and still gas up the truck. I sent the money for the rent, we’re fortunate but most are outta luck.. out of luck

Well I pluck these strings till my fingers bleed and I wipe the blood off on my sleeve
and I Won’t let my baby down
Cause I’m coming home from Copenhagen Town.

(Bridge) G#-C#m-B- Bbm7-5 / E-Asus2/F#-Bsus2
well I sleep all day and I sing all night and I’m marking My pay down...
Then I just hang around

Baby Everything feels like it’s crumbling to the ground, banks are taking people’s homes the drums of war still sound the corporate politicians raise their glasses while they take our country down, take her down.

Well I ride the Buses and the train and I walk the streets in the pouring rain but I won’t let it get me down
And I’ll bend these strings till my fingers bleed and I can’t stand on my aching knees
cause I will never let you down....
I’m coming home from Copenhagen town
I’ll be coming home from Copenhagen town.

Track Name: Goodbye
G-Gsus-F-CX4
He had one more debt to pay, one more night to stay
He could see the dawning day in his mind
She was everything they said, crown upon her head
But why did she feel dead, inside?

C-Csus-Ab-FX2 G-Gsus-F-CX2
One more wasted night, it’s Blackest fore the light
He held her in his arms, good and tight

D-C-G, D-C-A7-D7
An orange glow erupts across the sky
He won’t wake her up, she don’t wanna say..
Goodbye...Goodbye....

She led him on the run, magnetic as the sun
melting everyone, in her smile
He tried break away, but it was easier to stay
It carried on this way, for quite a while

One more wasted night, flip the switch tonight
He tells her everything will be alright

A Satin Glow erupts across her eyes
but he could not give up, He don’t wanna say
Goodbye....Goodbye

Harmonica Lead

Track Name: Hard To Get Here
City Lights cloak the sky or I’d wish upon a star tonight
There ain’t no clear end in sight
But somewhere else under that same sky someone else is wondering why
The stars are out but they can’t see them shine

Oh that’s life, oh that’s life with a slice of humble pie-2/4 Bar.

(G Asus4 D D/C# Bm7 Bm7/A E7 Cadd9 G/B Asus4-D)
When I fall down I get back up
You take my fear away
Yea, it was hard to get here,
but you make it easy to stay.

City boy livin’ in exile, Small town’s sweeter by a country mile
I can finally see those stars clear in the sky
Now I know they were always there, our lucky stars are everywhere
Just open up your eyes, and you’ll see them shine

This new life, This new life, I’m so alive

When I fall down I get back up
You take my fear away
Yea, it was hard to get here,
but you make it easy to stay.

For all the blessings in our lives, we can thank our sacrifice
The stars above can help you navigate, but look inside for the brightest guiding light

Lead

This city boy got his country girl, living in their perfect world
And there’s a place out there for everyone..

It’s your life, it’s your life. This is your time-Pause 2/4 Bar

Honey I ain’t leaving, so when you gonna stop your grieving?
cause I’m too tired to care either way anymore
We were born from circumstance, and came together quite by chance
But honey I won’t lay the blame down at your door

(A-BX2 A-B-C#m-D-B)
Love don’t seem to go down like you ever think it should
You thought it was so bad, when I thought it was good. I misunderstood

Oh darlin maybe I misunderstooooood
A Babe out in the woods, I Misunderstood.....
Like you always knew I would..misunderstood

Well I know I’m not a prophet but honey please don’t knock it
Because Heaven’s just a tank of gas away...hey hey
I always did see something there in your eyes of blue in your chestnut hair
Maybe we’re just cut too close to the bone anyway....

Nothing seems to go down like you ever think it should
You knew that we wouldn’t, I always thought that we could. I misunderstood

Oh darlin maybe I misunderstooooood
Like a Babe out in the woods, I Misunderstood.....
Like you always knew I would..misunderstood

(A-E-F#7-A-B)
So I won’t pour my heart out in a bottle anymore
They say love brings you closer, but our love’s more like war

Track Name: Money
Yea they talk about it, and they shout about it
Only know they can’t live without it
They obsess about it, think they’ll die without it
They can’t imagine a world that doesn’t revolve around it

Money can buy you freedom, money can free your mind
Yes and Money can feed the world and heal the blind
Oh but Money can’t buy You time

We’re enslaved by it, we can’t be saved by it
Maybe we should be enraged by it
Yea we yearn for it, we’re gonna burn for it
Never think to question why we fight about it

Money can buy you freedom, money can free your mind
Yes and Money can feed the world and heal the blind
Oh but Money can’t buy You time

Em D/F# G C Am D7
Everybody’s lookin’ for something more, don’t even know the
reason we need it for
Just dreaming of the the day when we don’t have to do it anymore

Money can buy you freedom, money can free your mind
Yes and Money can feed the world and heal the blind
Yea but Money can’t buy you time
Money can’t buy You time
Money can’t buy You time

Track Name: Way Back Country
When I’m all torn up, stressed out, the whole world stretching me thin.
I reach for my daddy’s old records, take one out for a midnight spin.
“Hello Darlin” and Your Cheatin’ Heart, have a healing power you can't ignore.
It goes without saying, preaching or praying, they don't write them like that anymore.

The way back country sound never seems to grow old.
I love way back country tales of a simple life moving slow.
Riding shotgun in my grandpa's truck, tearing down gravel roads.
Only the way back country speaks to this country boy's soul.

Some days I Feel so Lonesome I could cry all day
I Keep humming that old line in “He Stopped Lovin’ Her Today”
Put the top down in my old Bel Air, I’m the king of the road
Right through that Ring of Fire, across the cumberland plateau

The way back country sound never seems to grow old.
I love way back country tales of a simple life moving slow.
Riding shotgun in my grandpa's truck, tearing down gravel roads.
Only the way back country speaks to this country boy's soul.

Solo

Breakdown
The way back country sound never seems to grow old.

Kick in:
Riding shotgun in my grandpa's truck, tearing down gravel roads.
Only the way back country speaks to this country boy's soul.
