Travelin' On 05:25
Travelin; On (written by Geof Land) Never been to Machu Pichu Never been to Katmandu So if you're goin to the mountaintop I wanna go there with you Are you rolling Chichen Itza Are you rolling to Ougadougou Cause if you're rollin to Islamabad I wanna roll there with you Whoa, we're travelin on We gotta sing that travelin song I gotta feelin that it won't be long 'fore were travelin on Are you bound for Barcelona Are you bound for Timbuktu Cause if you're bound for Zimbabwe baby I'm bound to bind myself to you Are you floatin' down that Ganges Are you floatin down that Congo Cause if you're floatin down that old man river I wanna float on down with you Repeat Chorus And if you're doin' nothing I want to do the same thing too And if you're goin nowhere I want to go there with you If you want to cross the desert If you want to cross the sea And if you want to go up in the air Then put your arms around me Repeat Chorus

That Tea 05:10
That Tea Well gimme, some of that chamomile tea Well gimme, some of that chamomile tea I'm moving so fast like some kind of clown My thoughts rushing round, and babe, I need to slow down So gimme, some of that chamomile tea Well gimme, some of that chamomile tea Well gimme, some of that yerba buena tea Well gimme, some of that yerba buena tea My nose is so stuffed, my knees are so weak This cold's got me down and I'm so dead on my feet So gimme, some of that yerba buena tea Well gimme, some of that yerba buena tea Well gimme some of your honey in my tea Well gimme some of your honey in my tea Your love is so sweet, it's driving me wild I cry out for more just like a small hungry child Well gimme some of your honey in my tea So gimme some of your hospitality Oh me, oh my, oh me, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme that tea Oh me, oh my, oh me, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme that tea Oh me, oh my, oh me, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme that tea Oh me, oh my, oh me, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme that tea

The March of Progress Twas back in the 18th century when the country was still young Whitney with his cotton gin never dreamed what he had done An automated miracle to replace the work of man You can't compete with a cold machine, that was how it all began Then the factories they grew like trees in every citie's heart An industry for you and me that would tear our world apart Technology to set us free and always save the day The march of progress still goes on, get the hell out of the way The revolution swept the land and it changed the human race The automated motor car carried us from place to place Assembly lines in these changing times, and machines for this and that And the money flowed everywhere you'd go as America grew fat Then the factories they grew like trees in every citie's heart An industry for you and me that would tear our world apart Technology to set us free and always save the day The march of progress still goes on, get the hell out of the way In the name of world development we just keep pressin' on A televised society that wonders what went wrong Now we consume more than we produce as we drown our dream with booze We're all hostages to our war machine that protects what we're scared to lose Then the factories they die like trees in every citie's heart An industry for you and me that would tear our world apart Technology to set us free and always save the day The march of progress still goes on, get the hell out of the way

Love is back 05:32
Love is Back Just when I thought that life would leave me lonely Into my heart this feeling came so right Brown eyes that shine A tender touch so kind I see that love is back I see that love is back and growing I see that love is back again tonight Why is it what we have we just keep losing Why does the world always seem to fuss and fight Now that you're here Running fingers through my hair I see that love is back I see that love is back and growing I see that love is back again tonight Breaking through all the ivory towers Now is the time to let these hours flow All that we need is right here for us Living the moment now before it go-o-o-oes It's funny how things we have, they just keep changing Day into night and darkness back to light Smooth feeling skin Against mine once again I see that love is back I see that love is back and growing I see that love is back again tonight

The Classic 06:23
The Classic She's tired of being traded for a newer model For one who's shinier and firmer on the throttle Something to be said about a fine old classic She's utterly and totally real......She's utterly and totally real You have to stand in line but when you finally see her Reminds you of a time when you were so much freer On her side the sign it reads "Just once in a lifetime" She's something that is sweet and so real,Something that is sweet and so real CHORUS Tailfins and chrome, a very soft recline You can see the fine detail Every curve is smooth and polished to it's finest For sure her beauty's not,for sure her beauty's not for sale No longer sits outside and gets left unattended Never to be left alone or be neglected No longer taken out upon the open highway Tired of the toll that she's paid..So tired of the toll that she's paid Lessons in our life, not always of our choosing Some are gifts, while others,painful and confusing Guarding all her travels and her destinations Power in the way that she's made.Such power in the way that she's made REPEAT CHORUS Next time that you think it's time to make a trade in Think of the old classic that is on display and Maybe what you're searchin' for is here before you Some treasures cannot be replaced..Some treasures cannot be replaced REPEAT CHORUS

Across the Rollin’ Sky When you were just........ a little child..... upon your daddy’s knee You filled our house......with love and smiles.....and curiousity With each new day.....you found a way.....to change and learn and grow Into the one..... that you’ve become.....on journeys that you go You wonder where the time it goes...the blinking of an eye You’re on your own...... you’re leaving home.....across the rolling sky Now it reminds.....me of the time.....of when I did the same My father sighed.....my mother cried....’twas time that was to blame You can’t forget.....it never lets..........you hold to things for keeps But when you ache......to make a break......it’s with your faith you leap You wonder where the time it goes...from egg to butterfly You’re on your own...... you’re leaving home.....across the rolling sky The plane it lifts.....you wonder if.....the clouds will make you cry And through the tears.....and through the years......you bid the past goodbye As lives will move.....in different ways.....the thoughts play in your mind You choose instead.....to look ahead.....and cross the rolling sky You wonder where the time it goes...and places you or I You’re on your own...... you’re leaving home.....across the rolling sky

Somethin’ That’s About You First time I saw you standing... tall in the door I knew I’d have to try to get to know you more Get to know you more I wonder what’s in store Because there’s something that’s about you Makes me feel a way I’ve never felt before My eyes stay on you as you walk ‘cross the floor Such strong anticipation cuts me to the core Cuts me to the core I don’t know what for Because there’s something that’s about you Makes me feel a way I’ve never felt before My heart is beating, my blood is heating, I hear my breathing As you are getting near A voice so soothing, a presence moving We start to talk and then we go from there Who knows where? Her hair’s the color of a tropic ocean shore The strongness of this feeling that we should explore That we should explore I want to find out more Because there’s something that’s about you Makes me feel a way I’ve never felt before

Keepin’ Some Hope When chaos of war surrounds you You wonder how you’ll survive The light of the dawn astounds you When any new day arrives Just keepin’ some hope............ Just keepin’ some hope Just keepin’ some hope alive Just keepin’ some hope.............Just keepin’ some hope Just keepin’ some hope alive So why did they send you out here Where blood’s flowing just like wine The reasons were not made veryc lear For putting our lives on the line Just keepin’ some hope............ Just keepin’ some hope Just keepin’ some hope alive Just keepin’ some hope.............Just keepin’ some hope Just keepin’ some hope alive Right from the first, got caught in the worst of it........playing the game to stay alive Realities show... mortalitie’s grow, ......while sanity’s trying to survive You do what you do to make it through And wonder what’s truth and lies Your enemies sight has shakin’ you When you see yourself in his eyes Just keepin’ some hope............ Just keepin’ some hope Just keepin’ some hope alive Just keepin’ some hope.............Just keepin’ some hope Just keepin’ some hope alive

So Much to Me (for Sheila) You mean so much to me...... like sun to the light You mean so much to me..... like stars to the night Growing with love’s a pleasure I’ve found a lasting treasure now I don’t know how You mean so much to me, right now You mean so much to me..... like water to Spring You mean so much to me........ my everything Feels like you’re always near me A guiding light to steer me through Right back to you You mean so much to me, it’s true You mean so much to me.....like words to a rhyme You mean so much to me..... like numbers to time Counting each passing minute Knowing that love is in it, true From me to you You mean so much to me, you do
