Highway 54 04:56
VERSE: Working this highway These days they are so long. My bodies been beaten by the sun. All I smell is diesel and pine. And loneliness not felt in a long long time. CHORUS: Mile after mile The dirt is in my eyes I know I can’t go back I know that’s for sure I just keep working on highway 54. VERSE: Night after night day after day. Thoughts of remorse and what I didn’t say. You know people don’t change overnight At least that’s what my Momma she told me CHORUS: Mile after mile The dirt is in my eyes I know I can’t go back I know that’s for sure I just keep working on highway 54. VERSE: Working this highway These days they are so long. My bodies been beaten by the sun. CHORUS: Mile after mile The dirt is in my eyes I know I can’t go back I know that’s for sure Mile after mile The dirt is in my eyes I know I can’t go back I know that’s for sure I keep working on Highway 54.

El Sendero 05:08
El Sendero Verse: I see it on the horizon where Arizona ends Past the barbed wire and the never ending fence I’m not moving all that fast but I guess it’s not that slow The devil’s not a stranger but a friend I’ve always known Out East I see the morning glow The devil’s not a stranger in these parts I’m told Thought I saw him on the side of the road Think he resides in the canyons down below Verse: I’d like to leave this place with these wind swept lonely streets Houses boarded up old people whither in their seats No change in me in nearly twenty years Longing for the coolness of the salty ocean air Out East I see the morning glow The devil’s not a stranger in these parts I’m told Thought I saw him on the side of the road Think he resides in the canyons down below Verse: Verse: The sun is blistering and this old ford has no air Heat is blasting in my face and through my dusty hair Statics all I hear on this transistor radio Rolling out my bedroll hear coyotes call Out East I see the morning glow The devil’s not a stranger in these parts I’m told Thought I saw him on the side of the road Think he resides in the canyons down below

Observatory 04:06
Observatory Cruising across the desert on the loneliest road around. The war planes zip by with a deafening sound. And miles from nowhere that the mind long forgot. On top of this mountain, radio waves never stop. Chorus: I hear the squeaky slide of the dereks down below. How many hours have passed the Lord will only know. The only sound is the rattling of the windows. My face is in my hands resting on my elbows. My eyes can’t see as far as they can see. Cause all the haze is lingering in between. All that’s up here are broken bottles and faded porno mags. And bullet shells and dirty clothes in bags. Chorus: I hear the squeaky slide of the dereks down below. How many hours have passed the Lord will only know. The only sound is the rattling of the windows. My face is in my hands resting on my elbows. Not an exciting place out in this desert breeze Waiting to hear a signal I can barely breathe I know they’re out there somewhere, even closer to our home No signal coming in the observatory dome. Chorus: I hear the squeaky slide of the dereks down below. How many hours have passed the Lord will only know. The only sound is the rattling of the windows. My face is in my hands resting on my elbows.

Don’t Waste Your Breath Verse: Don’t waste your breath, don’t waste your breath on me I’ve heard this all before I’m at the end, the end of my rope And I don’t have hope for this no more Verse: We’ve been this way right from the start All these go arounds gave me this calused heart It’s just easier to walk away Don’t waste your breath cause I’ll never stay Chorus: The lines of the road are drowning in my lights Miles and miles with no one else in sight Another place it all feels the same Don’t waste your breath, don’t waste your breath on me Verse: I like my feet with no weighted chains Why does it seems things always have to change There’s no one who will ever pull me down Silence now is such a lovely sound Chorus: The lines of the road are drowning in my lights Miles and miles with no one else in sight Another place it all feels the same Don’t waste your breath, don’t waste your breath on me Don’t waste your breath, don’t waste your breath on me Don’t waste your breath, don’t waste your breath on me

La Gitana 04:54
La Gitana Verse: I walk the wide muddy delta to find a greener place Hopefully God willin I will see your face Everything I had blew away with the dust If I stay here in this hellhole my heart will turn to rust Chorus: Now the sun is sinking low And the night is getting cold The stars begin to glow Verse: The dawn is breaking so off I go Everything is in hand and laying low I have nothing to lose except maybe my life In the end its worth it when I reach the other side Chorus: Now the sun is sinking low And the night is getting cold The stars begin to glow Verse: The ground before me doesn’t seem to have an end Long days stretching outward but I can’t go back Just keep moving forward I look at every step With dreams of my new life fill my thoughts inside my head Chorus: Now the sun is sinking low And the night is getting cold The stars begin to glow

Sand Creek 04:38
Sand Creek Massacre I just passed the sign Of the Sand Creek Massacre Spirit’s there are all strewn about A cresent moon’s on the rise Here I sit in this musty old room This way of life’s not for me Gas flares dance upon the breeze No fortunes I can see Chorus: I don’t have no letters to send And I don’t have no money to spend I want to go to where that wagon trail goes leave this roughneck scene Leave those honky tonks far behind Before it’s the end of me Chorus: I don’t have no letters to send And I don’t have no money to spend I just passed the sign I just passed the sign I just passed the sign Of the Sand Creek Massacre

Prison Break 06:42
Prison Break Verse: Run the trail to Chocteau Creek 5 miles from Springfield and the life I hate Swim up the river to get away Run through the fields til I run out of day. There’s a long straight bridge, seems to have no end Gotta hide out for I have no friends Keep moving westward leave the show me state Past the fairgrounds and the Super 8. Need to catch a ride but no seems to stop Duck in the pastures when I see the cops. Chorus: Oh please warden you’re no good to me All the hours in solitary haunt me in my dreams. I can’t get caught no I won’t go back. Next time around I won’t last. Verse: Take the trail to Chocteau Creek Hide my scent so they can’t find me. Gotta keep on runnin and give it all I got This is no way to live no way by God Chorus: Oh please warden you’re no good to me All the hours in solitary haunt me in my dreams. You’re on your own in the next life too. A man who has no mercy for himself has none for you.

Until It Ends I have to leave this bottomland behind Head up north to the Mason Dixon Line This southern road sits below the water line I just passed the Vicksburg county line Chorus: I’ll ride this river til it ends Jump into the sea and make amends For all the bad things that I’ve done But that river’s gone dry and doesn’t run I’m headed for the dusty plains Where the air is dry and it never rains New memories flood out the old Everything’s more peaceful from up above Chorus: I’ll ride this river til it ends Jump into the sea and make amends For all the bad things that I’ve done But that river’s gone dry and doesn’t run
