Track Name: Southern Paradise
All my life it’s been haunting me, it’s in my blood and it fills my dreams
but I'm not afraid of livin’ anymore
Hopped a flight down to PCB like some kinda redneck refugee
Knew my life would change, as I stood upon that golden shore..Cause

This is my paradise lazy days and summer nights
Kickin’ back, There ain’t nothing any better than this life
Variety’s the spice of life, change it up, take a bite
I’m packing up my stuff, heading for a Southern Paradise.

Almost froze to death in Idaho, it was still too cold in New Mexico
Almost drowned in my own sweat in Tennessee
Now my beer’s ice cold and the girls are hot, it’s the perfect place, just the right spot
Not goin’ back to the cold, My blood’s too thin, Now I’m free!...cause

This is my paradise lazy days and summer nights
Kickin back, There ain’t nothing any better than this life
Variety’s the spice of life, change it up, take a bite
I’m packing up my stuff, heading for a Southern Paradise.

C#m G#/C B F#/Bb A B B7/C
Na na na na, Na na na na, Hey hey hey
Let’s leave today while we still can get away....

Track Name: Love Can Make You Lose Your Mind
(F-C-G, F-C-G-Em-D, F-C-G-Em-D-F-G11-G7)
He took the dog out of the house, threw his cloths out in the yard, cut up the credit cards
He lit a cigarette, Pulled up a chair, put the gas can on the ground
and he watched it all burn down
He put the pistol in his pocket, and he turned the truck toward the town
lookin for a showdown
Dog was hanging out the window, by the time he tracked her down
He shot her in her wedding gown

(C-E7-Am-Am/G-D7/F#, C-E7-Am-Am/G-Dm7-G11-G7)
Love can make you lose your mind,
Oh Love can make you weep, love can make you blind
Love can help you heal, Love can stop the hands of time
Love can make you lose your mind

The Sky lit up like a volcano, she threw her ring, slammed the car door,
and put the pedal to the floor
She could see the lights of Barstow ,hear that HEMI’s roaring sound
Burnin up that Desert ground
She saw a faint glow on the horizon, her gaze was fixed upon a sign
that said Nevada State Line
She was still gaining momentum, when she barreled into town
to run that cheatin bastard down

Chorus

(B7-Em-D-C-A7-D7)
Baby when you find a someone, love can make you think it will last
Oh but then you crash
Oh, ain’t no rhyme or reason, Love can bleed you like broken glass

Lead

Chorus

Track Name: Break Your Heart
G-Cadd9-Cadd9/G D(DFGDE)-Am-G
Baby you got a good head start ya like to take em down and tear em apart
Maybe I’ll be the one to break your heart
Ya like to spit fire and ya throw flames, Ya like the barbwire and the rusty chains
Maybe I’ll be the one to break your heart
Oh, Maybe I’ll be the one to break your heart

D(DFGDE)-Em-F-D-C-C/B-C/A-D
Like A hero riding all alone saddled to a rolling stone
Headlong shootin cross the stars, take the hits and wear the scars

C-D(DFGDE)-G-D/F#-Em-F-D-C-C/B-D, C-D(DFGDE)-G-D/F#-Cmaj7-Am-D7
Cause you, Oh you, I could never love another woman like you
But keeping up with you is a form of art
Cause you, Oh you, I could be the lover that you want me to but
Maybe I’ll be the one to break your heart

I got the tripwire against yerr jugular vein, Im runnin head on in the fast lane Ya know
Maybe I’ll be the one to break your heart
I need a hard night in a soft place I got a fierce bite and bitter taste ya know
Maybe I’ll be the one to break your heart
Oh Maybe I’ll be the one to break your heart

Like a Phantom in a wild night’s dream, volatile as gasoline
Shifting into 4 wheel drive, mostly dead but still alive

(Chorus)

Break

Track Name: Grace
C F/C X4 Dm7 F | }
Feel I can take on the world tonight,
I see the wonder and everything’ll be alright
It’s an amazing fragile life, strap in and hang on tight

(Repeat-Cadd9, G/B Am7 D7)
Remember when you got that first kiss goodnight?
Did your heart skip a beat, lookin’ in your newborn baby’s eyes?
You can be humbled by this life, more than you realize
Then I realized...

F G/B Cadd9 Fmaj7 | Dm G/B C C7 | F G7 | C G/B Am G | Fmaj7#11/E Fmaj7x2 | Fmaj7 Gadd6 | Fmaj9

This wonderful world around me
It can’t all be a mistake
When you add up all the miracles,
it’s just the most amazing place
I feel i’m in the presence of Grace

It’s the first time you fell in love real hard
When you fell in her arms and felt her beating heart
Like when you found the spirit of the lord, and ya finally feel his spark
it’s like ya came in from the dark.....

Chorus

Am AmMaj7 F D/F# G G7
You walked away from the wreck without a scratch
So Live everyday like it’s your last
Honey take that chance and don’t look back

Tag-C E F D/F# G G7
With Grace, Grace all you need is Grace...
The only thing that it can be is Grace.... Pause.

Chorus

Tag- Outro
Track Name: Days Of Night
This is a story of you and me, on a desert island
surrounded by the rolling sea
The winter was closing in and the rides were all shutting down
We needed to get out of this sleepy boardwalk town

Wind was growing colder in time
Started blowing over, whispering through our conscious mind

I can feel the winter crawling over me, drift across the island, to the raging sea
floating toward the spring, racing toward the light
We’ve got to make it through these Days of Night

We learned to weather any storm, kept it together
we dreamed about moving on
Waiting for our lucky break, no matter how long it takes
determined to get away, we had everything at stake

Everything gets better in time
The only thing that matters, is that you cross the finish line

I can feel the winter crawling over me, drift across the island, to the raging sea
floating toward the spring, racing toward the light
We’ve got to make it through these Days of Night

(G-D-F#sus-F#-Bm-E-Em7-A7)
Baby we’re on top of the world, nothing’s gonna break us
Ya know that nothing worth a damn is ever gonna come that easy
But I feel it in my bones, with every little beat of my heart

Lead over Verse

Everything got better in time
Honey all that matters, is we tore down that finish line

I can feel the winter crawling over me, drift across the island, to the raging sea
floating toward the spring, racing toward the light
I knew we’d make it through these Days of Night
Track Name: One Drink Short Of Dyin'
G-D/F#-C-Em-D
Many times I’ve wondered, what’s become of me
All My aspirations seemed to vanish in the sea
The Road that I should follow is right in front of me
Now I’m broke and hollow hung up in the debris

F-C-A7-D7
All the weight in this world coming down on me
I can’t kill this wicked thirst lord won’t ya hear my plea

G-D/F#-C-C-D G-D/F#-C-C/b-Am-D7
And it’s one in the morning, two in the day,
One drink in the evening to chase the blues away
and I drink Many on the weekends, just to pass the time
I’m one drink short of dying and I don’t seem to mind

I know come monday morning I’ll awake to find
I can’t recall where I’ve been since Saturday at Nine
And I can’t seem to remember but I never quite forget
Try to find some piece of mind but I end up with regret

All alone in this world, nothing left for me
I’ve been dealt a losing hand lord won’t ya set me free

And it’s one in the morning, two in the day,
One drink in the evening to chase the blues away
and I drink Many on the weekends, just to pass the time
I’m one drink short of dying and I don’t seem to mind

(Bridge) Em-D-Am-D7
I’m likely to pass out right across the railroad tracks
well it feels just like a freight train runnin right across my back

Track Name: Biggest Fool In this Town
D F#m G Em7add9 D A7sus4 A7
Why you wanna break my heart? Why ya wanna crush my dreams?
Why ya wanna tear us apart, at the seams..at the seams
Tell me who ya gonna run to when, the world comes tumbling down on you?
You’ll come runnin back again, ya know it’s true, ya know it’s true..Cause

G A D C G Em7add9 A7sus4 G D/F# Em7add9 D
I’ve had enough of this love
And your thunder clouds hovering above
I held you up, you took me down
I been the biggest fool in this town

Honey where ya gonna go from here? Can you make another brand new start?
Can ya find the strength to overcome the fear, Can ya play the part? Play the part
It’s been a while since you looked at yourself, but ya know I’m gonna give you the truth
You always needed a bit of help, followin through, followin through.....But

I’ve had enough of this love
And your thunder clouds hovering above
I held you up, you took me down
I been the biggest fool in this town

BbMaj7 C A7sus4 D
Might take some time before I get back around
I’m ridin on the wind before my feet even hit the ground

I could make another run of this town, I could tell myself I still believe
Girl I know If I was hanging around, You’d follow me, You’d follow me....but

I’ve had enough of this love
And your thunder clouds hovering above
I held you up, you took me down
I been the biggest fool in this town
Track Name: Falling For You
You’re a big bright star that beams every hue
Shining through your steel blue sea
I’m a silver stream colliding with you
Reflecting on me

Like a song of hope I sang unto you
whistle your sweet melody
I’m a whirling heart lovely and new
A natural harmony

I just can’t help falling for you and you know that i can see
baby you can’t help.... falling for me
I’m falling for you, you’re falling for me

Took a leap of faith, swallowed you whole
Left a hopeless life elsewhere
In a lucid dream where i’m in control
You’re the answer to my prayer

I just can’t help falling for you and you know that i can see
baby you can’t help.... falling for me
I’m falling for you, you’re falling for me
I’m falling for you, you’re falling for me

Em Walkdown Lead

(Chorus)
I’m falling for you, you’re falling for me
I’m falling for you, you’re falling for me
I’m falling for you, you’re falling for me
I’m falling for you, you’re falling for me
Track Name: I Ain't Enough
I used to think that love was easy, I used to think that life was fair
I used to be so naive that I thought I could see things that just weren’t there
I want to believe in something, I need to believe in truth
I guess it depends how it looks at the end of all the wanderings of youth

But I wanna know, why’ya so lonely
But I wanna know, why’ya so Blue.......
But I wanna know, why’ya angry
Oh Baby Ya got so much, but It ain’t enough

Ya thought you’d be something special, they taught ya to believe in yourself
Ya thought you were someone who’d change the world but you’re just like everybody else
You needed to find a purpose, You wanted to feel alive
You tried to forget you lost your dream to the struggle of tryin to survive

Chorus
Lead over Chorus

Now I don’t know much about contentment, But I know it’s hard to find
but I hope someday it comes my way, It’d be big load off my mind
Now I know you’ve got some questions, so honey get in line
I guess we’re supposed to try to figure it out while we walk the earth deaf and blind

But I wanna know, why am I lonely
But I wanna know, why am I Blue.......
But I wanna know, why am I angry
Oh Baby I got so much, but It ain’t enough

It ain’t enough, why am i lonely
It ain’t enough, why am I Blue.......
It ain’t enough, why am I angry
Oh Ya know I got so much, but It ain’t enough
Track Name: Confide
Confide Open E, Capo 2nd Fret


It had been a long long time since she gave a man her number
He could hear the babies cry, in the background when he phoned her
Could there be a chance that she’d find something to make her dream again?

She was always a head turner and the boys all fell before her
When she finally gave her heart all she got was a cold shoulder
He went to work one day and he up and ran away, 2 babies in her arms
And a stack of bills she couldn’t pay

(Chorus)
Confide in me lady, You inspire me baby open up
Let me inside of you
Conspire with me Lady, Don’t ya Tell me Maybe, let the flow of hope
Fill that void in you

(-Maj7-Minor thing-)

Under the frozen sky that meets the fury of the mountains
He made her feel alive from the rush of the endorphins
Could it be she finally tasted how love’s supposed to be?

All the darkness of the past she’d finally put behind her
And if this romance can eclipse the past and make it seem like just a blur
She’ll take solace in the warm embrace he gives her everyday, with 2 babies in her arms
And a new one on the way

(Chorus)

(-May7-Minor Thing-)

(Bridge)
Oh when you beat the odds and you teach yourself to win
That’s where you’ll find your strength again
Turn your backward eyes to the road that lies ahead
Tomorrow is on the horizon and the past is Dead….

(Chorus-out)
Track Name: Foreign Lands
G-C-G-Em-G-C-G-D-G
Blame is on Summer, blame it on each other, blame it on all our friends
you can put the blame on anyone but ya still can’t make amends
Well I got home a week ago and I still can’t understand
now we’re at war in Libya, Iraq and Afganistan

C-G-Em-G-C-G-D7-G
Foreign Lands..fighting in foreign lands
Tell me cause I don’t understand
Why we’re fighting in foreign lands

Well I did my time in the 1st Marines and I seen my share of Death
And I heard the lies that the government spills out with every breath
We pushed hard and we gave chase to the mountains and they dug in
Were surprised when we reached the poppy fields to find the the CIA
guardin’

Foreign Lands..fighting in foreign lands
Tell me cause I don’t understand
Why we’re fighting in foreign lands

Solo

Sgt told me that I’m a goin’ back for another tour
The next one makes it 5 long years I’ve been fighting foreign wars

Foreign Lands..fighting in foreign lands
Tell me cause I don’t understand
Why we’re fighting in foreign lands
Track Name: My Plan
(Country Swing Groove)
(E-D-A)
Ya know I’ve never been much for asking for direction
I like to find the way all on my own
Guess it’s a man thing, gettin help’s out of the question
And I figured I was meant to be alone
That’s when fait landed you right outside my door. (D-A-E)
It was then I had a purpose, I knew what I was livin for (D-B)

(Chorus)
I’ll do the dishes, you do the kisses
We’ll fill the seats in that new mini van
I’ll make the money, You Bring the honey
We’ll build a little family together, Darlin, that’s my plan

I still remember we were standing in your hallway, and
I thought that our first date had gone real swell
Well I stayed up all night and I thought about the future
Then I threw a dime in the wishing well
I struggled for a picture I could sell
It was then I knew for certain, then I heard that answer bell….

I’ll do the dishes, you do the kisses
we’ll build a palace on a big chunk of land
I’ll do the moppin , you do the shoppin
We’ll spend this whole lifetime together, Darlin that’s my plan

Bridge( C#m-Abm-D-A-E, C#m-Abm-F#m Walkup-B)

I’ll host a barbeque I’ll walk the kids to school
I’ll even join the PTA
And I’ll be there to obsess about the price of her prom dress
You know I’ll never run away…

(Lead)-D-A-E-D-A-B
I’ll do the dishes, you do the kisses
we’ll build a palace on a big chunk of land
I’ll make the bacon, You do the shakin..
We’ll build a whole family together…
It’s you and me, honey thats forever, Darlin that’s my plan


do the best i can makes me the man i am, darling it’s all part of my great big plan
Track Name: If I Could Sing The World A Song
(C-C/B-AmX2-Am-G-F-F/E-Dm-Cadd9-G-G/F-Em7add11-Dm-Dm-G)
Think I’ll write you a song, hope it makes you sing along
If I could sooth your weary heart, could it last forever
So I’ll keep strumming away. till I ain’t got nothing left to say
If songs could really fill the world with joy and laughter
Would it really change your mind

(F-G-Am-Am-G-F-G7-C-C7-F-G-Am-G-F-Dm-G7)
If I could sing the world a song
forget about who’s right or wrong
I’d sing a melody so clear and strong
Everyone would sing along

So I’ll dream of a time, there’s no more dividing lines
If the lines I sing are true they’ll ring forever
I’ll keep moving ahead up where only angels tread
High above the silver clouds and the stormy weather
With voice that fills the sky

If I could sing the world a song
forget about who’s right or wrong
I’d sing a melody so clear and strong
Everyone would sing along

(E7-F-C-E7-Am-G-D/F#-F-D7-G7)
I’d wrap my arms around you, let the melodies surround you
we could come together through a song
Blanket the whole world in harmony
I give you my love and then you give back to me

Lead over Verse

If I could sing the world a song
forget about who’s right or wrong
I’d sing a melody so clear and strong
Everyone would sing along

Tag- I’d spin a melody so clear and strong
Everyone would sing along

Track Name: Warrior
Intro:

I was only four years old at the end of Vietnam
My uncle had done four tours there and came back a different man
I roamed around in Camouflage, couldn’t wait till I was old enough
Till I could prove that I was tough ,to wear that green and tan and be a

(Chorus)
Warrior..Long as heaven shines her light, I will stand tall
Warrior..I step into the great unknown , till the spirit comes to
to take me home

Intro (E-F#m-A-B)

I jumped into Panama when I was just 18
8 months in the Army, I was scared and pretty green
Then I spent some time in the first Gulf war, I knew what I was fighting for
I saw things different then before, I was young and lean and mean

(Chorus)

Lead (over Chorus)

Breakdown over Intro progression

We landed in Afghanistan on the fourth of July
Rollin down the same road I’d been down so many times
My boys in front and behind me, we’re closer then a family
There’s no place that I’d rather be, then under that Red Sky

Chorus X 2

Track Name: Story Of Our Lives
Fmaj7 C Em F F G Am7 D7sus4 G
She said there’s got to be more as she threw open the door
and walked right outta my life
Grabbed my blue swede shoes and started singing the blues
everywhere and every night

I felt like a grifter or a high plains drifter
in an old John Ford Movie
Till one gray day I let it all slip away and
crashed my chevy right into the Levy

(Chorus) Fmaj7 C Am G Fmaj7 C/E D7sus4 Bbsus2 Dm7 G7sus4
And the songs that were sung are still fresh on our tongue
As a Caribbean Sunrise
Naive and bold, said we’d never grow old,
Had stars shining in our eyes
Oh but it’s all a part of the story of our lives

Headed out to LA in my old Chevrolet,
cause that’s where stories are told
But they’d taken the gold from the yellow brick road
Now it was crumbling down and old

But I stumbled on, on the wings of a song
that my gu’itar tore apart
I kept spinning my wheels so I just couldn’t feel
The big black hole I Had in my heart

And the songs that were sung are still fresh on our tongue
As a Caribbean Sunrise
Naive and bold, said we’d never grow old,
Had stars shining in our eyes
Oh but it’s all a part of the story of our lives

Then my luck began to turn, my big frown turned upside down
Guess an old dog can still learn, as long as this old world keeps
whirlin’ Round
Track Name: Young Love
VERSE 1
Savannah’s been my sweetheart since I was ten years old
She’d wear my t-shirt walkin’ back from the swimming hole
One day she snuck up and kissed me right on my left cheek
And a swarm of butterflies started flutterin’ down in my knees
That’s how Adam must of felt first time he kissed Eve

CHORUS
Young love is old as time
Boy meets girl and fireworks fly
Nothing’s changed since the first kiss lit up the sky
Eighteen or eighty we still go crazy for young love

VERSE 2
Seven summers later, I was bailing grandpa’s hay
My little country angel brought me fresh squeezed lemonade
Savannah in her sundress was a heavenly sight
I said baby let’s hit the swimmin’ hole tonight
You and me makin’ ripples in the pale moonlight

CHORUS
Young love is old as time
Boy meets girl and fireworks fly
Nothing’s changed since the first kiss lit up the sky
Eighteen or eighty we still go crazy for young love

Bridge A E G/D B7
Savannah and I muddy up the creek every chance we can
Laughin’ and splashin’ like little kids runnin’ holdin’ hands
LEAD

Savannah took my last name seven years ago this june
now were raisin' a little hellion high steppin' in daddy's boots
I watched him pluckin' daisies she loves me she loves me not
he's got a crush on a pretty red head who lives just down the block
I saw him kiss her on the cheek man that turned back the clock
 
CHORUS
Young love is old as time
Boy meets girl and fireworks fly
Nothing’s changed since the first kiss lit up the sky
Eighteen or eighty we still go crazy for young love
