Backroads of Heaven

Tell my baby I lay my rifle down
Tell my baby I lay my rifle was down
Then the judge came, turned my rifle around
Now I’m walkin’ round
These Backroads of Heaven
Tell my brother he had the blank
Tell my brother his had the blank
When he lined up, to fire with the ranks
Sent me down these
Backroads Of Heaven

Chorus
But I was told
I was told
To stand by what I’d done
Those who’ve fallen by my gun
Tell Saint Barbara I know she understands
Tell Saint Barbara I know she understands
Well I need her now – to take me by the hand
Lead me round these Backroads of Heaven

Solo 

Repeat Chorus
Tell my baby I kneel me down to pray
Tell my baby I kneel me down to pray
For forgiveness, then I whispered her name
And then I set out for the Backroads Of Heaven

I Wish My Heart Could Speak

I get all choked up and twisted
When that woman looks at me
And my eyes get all funny
And there are things I do not see
You’d feel the same way
If she looked at you
Well I’ve been in love before
But this is something new

I got sweat on the palms of my hands
And I get light headed
And my legs can barely stand
If she came walking my way
I might not remember
Cause I’d be hotter than July
In the middle of December

Chorus
I’d like to hold her in my arms
Cause she’s the only one for me
There’s pretty women everywhere
But she’s the only one I see
I’d tell her that I love her
But my mouth is a little weak
Oh baby how I wish
My heart could speak

Went to the Doctor cause the color
Just ran out of my face
I thought I might have had a cold
But he could not find a trace
He sat me down
told me to open wide
Well I could tell him how I feel
If I could get my tongue untied

There must be something wrong
With these knees
Cause they won’t stop knocking
Somebody help me please
I got a nervous little twitch
Above my eye
And I fell down on the ground
But I was aiming for the sky

Repeat chorus

Cold Hearted Women

Just when you think you have no more feelings
Is when you begin to care
Just when you feel your heart is healing
You face something no heart could bear
Now all your mistakes don’t come easy
So you run to the nearest remedy
But this one deceives you
And then she leaves you
Standing there wondering why
Cold Hearted Women Don’t Cry
Just when it seems Life ain’t worth living
Somebody makes your day
And when you feel the love that is given
It takes your pain away
Who could have thought this might happen
That somebody would just come and walk on in
Do I hesitate?
Will this one wait? 
Am I the reason why?
Cold Hearted Women Don’t Cry

I know how it feels when it ends
But I’m starting all over again
This one is real
She knows how I feel
And shows me the reason why
Cold Hearted Women Don’t Cry
Cold Hearted Women Don’t Cry
Never, never, never, never, never
Cry

Take This Hammer

Chorus
Workin on a Railroad, a dollar a day
Workin on a Rail road, for a dollar a day
Workin on a Railroad, a dollar a day
Gonna get my money, gonna get my pay
Take this hammer, take it to the captain
Take this hammer, take it to the captain
Take this hammer, take it to the captain
Tell em that don’t want it and I gone
If he ask you, why was I laughin’
If he ask you, why was I laughin’
If he ever ask you, why was I laughin’
Tell em I was cryin lord yeah wasn’t I cryin’

Repeat Chorus
Solo

If he ask you, why was I runnin’
If he ask you, why was I runnin’
If he ever ask you, was I runnin’

Gonna get my money, gonna get my pay

All the live the live long day
Gonna get my money, gonna get my pay
Get my money, gonna get my pay

Shine

As darkness falls upon this day
And morning seems so far away
And when it feels like this night might never end
I reach for you again
As storm clouds block the sun
And my dreams crumble one by one
And this grey sky is my only friend
I reach for you again

Chorus
That’s when you shine so fine
You always shine so fine
In the morning I must go

Leave this View Of Toledo
And your light will lead me
Lead me
(I want you to lead me)
When I look into your eyes I see
Everything I can be
With morning closing in
I reach for you again 

Interlude
Repeat chorus
Vamp

And shine
Shine,
Yeah yeah you Shine, shine,
Shine on shine on me now
Oooh
Shine

Life's Looking Back

In the blink of an eye
In the beat of a heart
You were there and you gave me a brand new start
If ever you fall I will follow you there
Not a moment too soon
Just in a nick of time
You came along and then you were forever mine
Every second you breath I am breathing with you
Not a moment too soon

Chorus

I looked at life with eyes too blind to see
I thought that was the way it had to be
But now I know that one and one is three
And now life’s looking back at me
Every time that you cry
By the smile on your face
You make my world a perfect place
You took the rust off these rusted old charms
Everything that I had, Everything that I knew
Was all that mattered to me until we made you
My head was headed down a one-way track
But now life’s looking back at me
Solo
Chorus

I looked at life with eyes too blind to see
I thought that was the way it had to be
But now I know that one and one is three
And now life’s looking back at me
But now I know that one and one is three
Life’s looking back, Life’s looking back, 
Life’s looking back at me

Blackbird

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
Black bird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Chorus
Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly, Blackbird Fly
Into the light of the dark black night.
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Black bird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Chorus Repeat
Vamp

There’s a Blackbird, sittin up in the tree
This Blackbird, is just sittin there lookin at me

Well hey Blackbird,, whatcha cryin for?
I don’t believe, you wanna cry cry cry no more
Blackbird, take these sunkin eyes
and dream
You were only waiting for this moment
to be free
Blackbird... Blackbird... Blackbird...
Gonna Fly away now...
