Track Name: Care Free Days
CARE FREE DAYS

Got up early one Friday morn’
Headed for the sun
Leavin’ the gray skies all behind
Headed down south bound 41
With a couple of friends
Lookin’ to see what we could find

All our troubles seemed so far away
Gonna have a care fee day
Burnin’ fire on the right
Marks the end of day
We have long been on our way

Got around New Orleans town
Copped a bottle of wine
Looked up Old Georgia in the park
Passed the wine along with time
Way ‘till after dark
Singin’, laughin’, talkin’ from the heart

All our troubles seemed so far away
Gonna have a care free day
Life on Bourbon Street
It’s such a treat
It really doesn’t matter what time of day

Headed on east down along the Gulf
Gonna see the Florida Keys
Picked a few oranges for along the way
Spent the night in a Holiday Inn – parking lot of course
When it’s free who needs to pay

All our troubles seemed so far away
Gonna have a care free day
Pitched a big white tent
In the sand with ease
Living high on the summer breeze

Back up north along the coast
New York City here we come
Got to kiss Miss Liberty
For standing guard over this land of ours
For you and me
So we may travel it o’ so free
All our troubles seemed so far away
Yes, I had my Care Free Days

Track Name: For My Honey
FOR MY HONEY

Sharin’ the time
Along with a bottle of wine
With my honey
On a sunny afternoon

Ticklin’ off her shoe
On a blanket for two
With my honey
On a sunny afternoon

Life is just a merry-go-round
With it’s up and it’s down
Life is surely bound
To be more up than down when she’s around

I’m feeling fine
She’s lookin’ for another bottle of wine
That’s my honey
On a sunny afternoon

Life is just a merry-go-round
With it’s up and it’s down
Life is surely bound
To be more up than down when she’s around

Tryin’ to fly a kite
Runnin’ with all my might ‘cuz there’s no wind
For My Honey
On a sunny afternoon

She thinks I’m funny
On a sunny afternoon

For My Honey
She’s my sunny afternoon

Track Name: Just Keep Trying
JUST KEEP TRYING

Today is fine I’ll slip outside my window
Catch a little sun
The air is warm it feels good all around me
All my work is done
But in the West a storm is a brewing
I think it’s going to rain
Who is there to blame – it’s pouring

I look around I see things going past me
I think I’m on the move
I feel good ‘cuz I know I’m going my way
And so far it’s smooth
But then one day a change could make a big wave
That would rock my boat
I wonder if I’d float – I can’t swim

Can’t complain
It would be worse not trying
Life’s a game
Don’t be a quitter – just be a winner again

When times are good and few things could be finer
Enjoy them while you can
Set a goal and get what you are after
And learn to understand
That maybe when you least expect it
Something may go wrong
But soon it will be gone
Stop crying - Just Keep Trying
And you’ll be back on top where you belong

Track Name: River Please Carry Me
RIVER PLEASE CARRY ME

I went on a journey in a dream
I was floating on a raft down a stream
Down a stream – in a dream

No place to go and no place to be
Just drifting down the river very casually
Casually – to the sea

River Please Carry Me
To the place I long to be
Oh river won’t you please carry me
That’s all I ask of thee

Gaze to the left and then to the right
It’s a forever changing beautiful sight
Beautiful sight – day or night

Lie on my back and look to the sky
The sky is blue and I wonder why
I’ll wonder why - ‘till I die

Oh River Please Carry Me
To the place I long to be
Oh river won’t you please carry me
That’s all I ask of thee

Your water is cool and crystal clear
Your surface reflects like a shimmering mirror
Your shimmering mirror – reflects my tears

You deliver me and you ask no fees
Your gracious drift has no boundaries
No boundaries – how I envy thee

Oh river won’t you please carry me
To the place I long to be
Oh river won’t you please carry me
I just want to be free

Track Name: Darkside
DARKSIDE

Sun does not shine at night
Moon is not always bright
Equal is half your life
Amid dark and light

Like the blind man
You must use all your senses
To do what you can
Shed light in the sunken hole
Which is the Darkside of your soul

It’s not so black or white
Shadows require some light
Where does your profile go
When you’re in the shade?

It’s always there
Fusing with further darkness
Waiting to share
They’re an un-linkable pair
You and your Darkside of your soul

Track Name: Let It Ring
LET IT RING

There are days to come
When I won’t be the same
I’ll be free to run
And even change my name
You don’t have to change
And this you must believe
It may all sound strange
But it’s the way it’s got to be

For if you went my way
Then it would not be at all
‘Cuz really you would stay
And everything built would fall
You see you and only do it so far
And this is true you know
Before beauty turns into an ugly scare
And the real you would show

Now it’s time to leave
And time will only tell
When the great game of deceive
Will ring out like a bell
Then you won’t be there
And you’ll look for something new
For the change to be totally fair
It’s better me than you

Track Name: Summer In The City
SUMMER IN THE CITY

Summer In The City
With it’s long hot days
Isn’t it a pity
Didn’t get a chance to get away

I can hear you calling

Some may find it witty
That I’m left here all alone
Summer In The City
Just can’t compete with my sweet home

I can hear you calling

I miss your touch and sunlit hair
I can hear you calling

I miss your touch and sunlit hair
I’ll always hear you calling

Track Name: Seasons
SEASONS

From summer’s breeze
To winter’s freeze
That’s how long I knew that man
Springtime came
And brought him rain
Summer flourished in pain

Seasons come and seasons go
And the changes that they bring
Enable us to grow
Without the sun we cannot see
But with the light from love
We can be set free

Longhaired girl
Left in her own world
Of confusion, doubt and pain
Nowhere to turn
Her heart still yearns
For the man who forgot her name

Seasons come and seasons go
And the changes that they bring
Enable us to grow
Without his sun we cannot see
But with the light from love …

Seasons come and seasons go
And the changes that they bring
Enable us to grow
Without the light we cannot see
And with our sight from love
We will be set free

We will be set free

Track Name: Horicon
HORICON

While driving all night long
Towards home, my home sweet home
October moon beams
Pulling all the way

Gliding past trees and fields
While time slips away
Deep in thought
I feel I’m no longer driving
But far, so far away

And there it was a sight to behold
As dawn swept the moon away
Up on the horizon
Geese – too many to say

Scrubbing the farmer’s field
They’ll stay for awhile
Renewing
And feeding their weary wings
Before they carry on

Fly away
On one of life’s long journeys
Fly from here to sunshine
Carry on
To one of life’s long journeys
Fly

Now I’m the one who comes back
Year, after year, after year
To join my friends in
This field who’s grown so dear

We rest our weary bones
And stay for awhile
Renew ourselves
For all of life’s many missions
Before we carry on

Fly away
On one of life’s long journeys
Fly from here to sunshine
Carry on
To one of life’s long journeys
Fly

Fly
Oh fly from here
Fly
Carry on from here
Horicon

Track Name: Geronimo
GERONIMO

I am a killer
I’m a medicine man
I have the power
I’m a magical man
I am a healer
I’m a warrior man
I am a fighter
I’m a menacing man
I’m Chiricahua
Of the Apache band

My name is Geronimo

You took my wife
You took my families land
I need revenge
I am a merciless man
I cut my hair
I am a spiritual man
I move like wind
I am an invisible man
I won’t surrender
You’ll have to catch me if you can

My name is Geronimo - I’m free

I’m free
To wonder our land
I’m free
With my family
The blowing wind in my hair
Abundance of food to share
The water, the blue stones, the scent in the air

I’m free
To remember our fathers
Whose voices still sing to us
The stories of truth and trust
That honored our people for 1000 years

You brought your guns
You brought your many white eyes
You starved my people
And you only talked lies
You took my body
Never captured my soul
You think I’m caged
Cuz’ you don’t fear me no more
You see me as
The Old Man In The Corner

But I am Geronimo
And I won’t be caged – I’m free

To wonder our land
I’m free
With my family
The blowing wind in my hair
Abundance of food to share
The water, the blue stones, the scent in the air

I’m free
To remember our fathers
Whose voices still sing to us
The stories of truth and trust
That honored our people for 1000 years

I’m free
To wonder our land
I’m free
With my family
The blowing wind in my hair
Abundance of food to share
The water, the blue stones, the scent in the air

I’m free
To remember our fathers
Whose voices still sing to us
The stories of truth and trust
That honored our people for 1000 years

I am Geronimo
I am Geronimo
I am Geronimo

I am Geronimo
