AMERICAN GYPSY (2016)

AMERICAN GYPSY
I was born
on the wrong side of the law
Now I sleep yea
where I fall 

Cause I was forced
to leave my hometown 
for puttin' the man
six feet in the ground 

I’m an American 
I’m an American 
American Gypsy 

I’m an American  
I’m an American  
American Gypsy 

I don’t hang no pictures
I don’t plant no seeds 
The road ahead has
everything I need 

I sleep by day
I ride by night 
Chasing the setting sun baby
into the bright moonlight 

I’m an American 
I’m an American 
American Gypsy

I’m an American  
I’m an American  
American Gypsy, yea

I’m an American 
I'm an American
American Gypsy

I'm an American
I'm an American
American Gypsy, yea 

HOME BY MORNIN'
You take what you get 
You get what I leave 
I get what I like 
and I like what I see 

I'll be home, I'll be home 
I'll be home by mornin' 

Uh uh uh
Uh uh uh
I'll be home by mornin'

Uh uh uh 
Uh uh uh 
I'll be home by mornin' light

Don't ask me where I've been 
Don't ask me where I've been 
Cause I've been, everywhere 
and I've seen, everything 

I'll be home, I'll be home 
I'll be home, by mornin'

Uh uh uh 
Uh uh uh 
I'll be home by mornin' 

Uh uh uh

I'll be home by mornin' light

Uh uh uh  
Uh uh uh  
I'll be home by mornin'  

Uh uh uh   
Uh uh uh   
I'll be home by mornin' light

FOREVER YOUNG
We got songs 
for the girls up front 
We got songs about this and that 
But this one here
this one here's for Pat 

We were sitting at the bar
with Becca pouring drinks 
talking bout the future
and what we think about life and love 
and the spirit of music 

Then you sang a couple songs
that really hit home
48 hours later, Pat you were gone
Where'd you go
somewhere over the rainbow

Hope you made it down to Austin 
Your soul singing to the sun 
forever free, forever young 
Hope you made it down to Austin
Your soul shining in the sun
forever free, forever young

Day turns into night 
Night back into day 
Weeks turn into months 
and years slip away 
it's surreal the way life 
just goes on 

Sometimes I smile 
at the way that it seems 
the last year of your life 
you were livin' your dreams
playing sweet sweet music
seven nights a week

Hope you made it down to Austin
Your soul singing to the sun
Forever free, forever young

Hope you made it down to Austin 
Your soul shining in the sun 
Forever free, forever young 
Forever young (4x) 

Hope you made it down to Austin 
Your soul shining with the sun
Forever free, forever young

Hope you made it down to Austin 
(know you made it now [2x]) 
Your soul singing in the sun
(I hope you made it now) 
(I know you made it [2x]) 
Forever free, forever young 

Hope you made it down to Austin
(I know you made it now [2x]) 
Your soul shining with the sun 
(I hope you made it now)
Forever free, forever young 
(I know you made it [2x]) 
(Made it now) 

I know you made it down to Austin!

SMOOTH
You’re so smooth
when you walked in the room
like it was just me and you
You’re so smooth 
Wanna get down in your groove 
like only I can do 
You're so smooth
but I’m smooth too 

Are you wasting all my time boy 
Are you handing me a line, this time
Are you playing with my heart 
I got to know 

You're so smooth
when you walked in the room 
like it was just me and you
You're so smooth 
Wanna get down in your groove 
like only I can do 
You're so smooth
but I’m smooth too 

Are you wasting all my time boy 
Are you handing me a line, this time
Are you playing with my heart 
I got to know 

Every time I think about it
Gotta get you, want you on it 
Once you taste it can’t forget it 
Come on baby are you ready 

Every time I think about it 
Wanna taste you, want you on it  
Once you taste it can’t forget it 
Are you ready (3x)
You're so smooth (8x)

Are you ready (3x)

You're so smooth

 

ANGEL CAN FLY
Nothing I wouldn’t give 
to see your face again 
This oh so broken heart 
left here all alone 

I can still recall
the time we spent 
livin’ a fast lane life
with no regrets 
The candle burned at both ends
won’t last the night 
oh when it burns
what a fine shining light yeah 

Try not to fly no higher
than your angel can fly (3x)

Try not to fly no higher 
than your angel, angel flies 

You taught me how to love 
I pray there’s more than this 
Never to forget 
til I hold you in these arms again, well 

I can still recall
the time we spent 
livin’ a fast lane life
with no regrets 
The candle burned at both ends
won’t last the night 
oh when it burns
what a fine shining light, yeah

Try not to fly no higher 
than your angel can fly (3x) 

Try not to fly no higher  
than your angel, angel flies

REVOLUTION 2012
The planet is warming 
We all know the reason
Hard to hide what you're feelin' inside
when you feel it 

Revolution is callin' 
Summer is the season 
You become one of them
if you pretend you don’t hear it 
but you hear it

Clear as a bell
Revolution 2012
Clear as a bell
Revolution 2012

Workin’ class slavery
greed is the reason 
Scraping by tradin' hours for dimes 
cause you need ’em 

Revolution is calling 
Summer is the season 
You become one of them
if you pretend you don’t hear it 
but you hear it

Clear as a bell 
Revolution 2012

LET ME DOWN EASY
Well you let me down easy
said let's just be friends 
Well you let me down easy
said let's just be friends 
But I've been down that road
and I know where it ends 

Time can move mountains
might make you feel free 
Time can move mountains
might make you feel free 
But time will never move
you any closer to me 

Well you let me down easy
but you still let me down
Well you let me down easy
but you still let me down 

Down from so high
my feet left the ground 
and it hurts to come down 
Yeah it hurts to come down 

I came down too fast 
barely survived the crash  
I am numb to this world
I can't feel anymore

Did you hear my heart break 
Did you feel my world shake
but there's no where to run
when you do what you done

You said that you loved me
but that was a lie
Well you said that you loved me
but that was a lie 

A broken heart it wont kill ya
Just make you wish that you died

Well you let me down easy
but you still let me down 
Well you let me down easy
but you still let me down
