Sad Dirty Night

Verse 1:
I’m sittin on an old log, Croakin with the bull frogs.
Just another long hard Sad dirty night.      
I’m hanging with the fire flies, A Lighter shining in our eyes.    
Just another long hard Sad dirty night. (I’m movin on) 

Verse 2:
Now I’m drinkin with the old dogs, Were swillin that same ol grog
Just another long hard Sad dirty night.
I’m perched on this broken stool Playin old school pool
8 ball hangin on the corner pocket….. (I’m shootin it in)            

Just another long hard sad dirty night (I’m movin on)

Verse: 3
Finally Swimming back up stream, Reachin for my dream.
Just another long hard Sad dirty night. 
Yea, I’m crawlin on the sea shore
Looking back & the tide wants more.
Feels like the storms rollin in.

 Just another long hard sad dirty night (I'm movin on!)

Been There Done That Got The T-Shirt

Verse 1:
It was a hot n sticky steamin sweatin July evening
Another night on the beach
Just a pickin my guitar & starin at the stars
Cause this is where I’d rather be.
See the wells run dry & the dealer hand folds
Then two guys moved to Bangor maine with my clothes  
I’ve been there done it I’ve got all the t-shirts From Galveston all the way to St.Pete  

Verse 2:
It was a cold January morning
Another night with no sleep
See the womens in bed & my head is spinnin
Hows the bills getting paid, next week
I’m working everyday to pay the IRS way
& if I don’t pay they say the’ll put me away
I’ve been there done it I’ve Got all the T-shirts
Cheers Boston town
New Englands crown For helping me get on my feet. 

Verse 3:
It was a rainy Tuesday in May 
Another day with no son
See my youths gone away & that’s okay
Cause I got a T-shirt that reminds me everyday
That I’ve been there done it I’ve Got all the T-shirts

All the way from LA to San francisco bay
Where ½ of the are Liberal the other are gay  

I’ve been there done it I’ve Got all the T-shirts

From Niagara Falls to Fanual Hall
The Kanca Mangus Highway, Maine I’ve seen it all  

I’ve been there done it I’ve Got alllllllll the T-shirts

America 911 Unite

Verse 1:
So this is the place my forefathers left me.
They called it the home of the brave & the land of the free
I’ve read the history books & it’s all the same
The blood of war runs through man kinds veins  

American 911 united  

Verse 2:  
Today’s the day the towers fell on us
Looking for who’s to blame is the cause of mistrust
Sifting through the pieces of our past
Wondering just how long our future will last  

American 911 united, America 911 unite, American 911 united, America 911 unite,  911 Unite  

For which they stood  & will rise again One nation under god indivisible With liberty & justice for all America 911 unite  

Verse 3:  
Now that the smoke has cleared & the lives have been lost
Standing in disbelief that the line has been crossed    
Lady liberty still holds the flame Our flags solute the courageous with no fame   Lady liberty still holds the flame Our flags solute the courageous with no fame!

Lighthouse Lights

When will we see the lighthouse lights again?
And when will the fog stop rollin in?
When will we see the lighthouse lights again?
Will the fog ever stop rollin in?  

The captain turns starboard side tells the crew hold on tight  As the waves come Crashing in!
Below are the shadows of men by the candles 
Will they ever see the lighthouse lights again?  
When will we see the lighthouse lights again?
Will the fog ever stop rollin in?

When will we see the lighthouse lights again?
And when will the fog stop rollin in?  

The Rigging from the boom snaps the mainsail swings back
As the wind rips through the sail 
Drenched in the pouring rain
All of the deck hands sang
Will we ever see the lighthouse lights again!  

When will we see the lighthouse lights again?
When will the fog stop rollin in?  

The Bell from the buoy sounds,
Land Ho the crows nest shouts,
As the mast comes Smashing in!
Not far in the distant sky
The lighthouse lights up the eyes
Of the men who'll never see the lighthouse again!

Myself

Myself
I've lost the man known as myself -
He seems to have vanished away.
Did he catch the breeze above the trees,
Or become part of a golden sun ray?

He siezed the dreams I've never drempt
Then ascended the stars of the midnight sea -
Now through the fading smoke of the burning clouds
I commence to correct my false fantasies.

I sought not to seal all my secrets inside -
Nor strived to hide my insanity with pride -
So I search for solutions to seduce my mind
And seek the sanity myself's tried to hide,
Now I'm starting to see, I'm no longer blind
And I've buried the feelings of wanting to die.

Now my conscious tells me not to run,
But to stand and face what is to come,
To realize what's past is done
And follow this new life I have begun
For every day there is a rizing sun and
Now I know back home myself has come.
