Black Baldy Stallion
Slidin' down the canyon on the Black Baldy Stallion
Through the rocks and the ridges of the cold dark night
Shinin' like a diamond from the belt of Orion
Is it your imagination, is the end in sight?
From the top of the mountain to the edge of the water
You can hear her singin' softly so you spring to the order
Of the song she was singin' the first time you saw her
The years melt away as you ride toward the border.
I Gotta Go
Got no time to shoot the breeze
got no time to blow,
Excuse me mister if you please
I gotta go
Born one morn on the day of the dead
in a bombed out bungalow
My mama kissed my cheek and said
I gotta go
Play A Train Song
A smokin', long black Cadillac; the engine's winding down
He parked it up on the sidewalk like he owned the whole damn town.
I saw him talking to some chick through a thick ghost of smoke,
Through a thicker haze of southern comfort and coke.
"Say girl you're hotter than the hinges hanging off the gates of hell.
Don't be afraid to turn to me babe if he don't treat you well."
And by he, he meant me, so I laughed and I shook his hand.
He laughed a little bit louder as he yelled up at the band.
The Road Goes On And On
I don't care what you say
I never liked you anyway
Wouldn't give you the time of day
If I had the time to spend
You're malicious and downright cruel
Superstitious, so uncool
Best wishes, you loudmouthed fool
I hope I never see you again
You're a regular jack in the box
Waves On The Ocean
There's a day of reckoning coming
In my heart I know your gonna go
I'll believe it when I see it
When I see it I'll know
When the rain falls, when the sun sets
When the mountains tumble to the sea
When the waves on the ocean wave bye-bye baby bye-bye
The waves on the wave bye-bye baby bye-bye
