Track Name: I Am Yours
The 17th of April passed me by
I went all day with out a tear in my eye
And somewhere in some town the church bells rang
I was so busy I didn’t hear anything

Then I saw your smile on my tiny screen
And I cried like I did that night that it rained
I thought that you were leaving but what did I know
Oh my God that was 30 years ago

I call you when I need to be strong
When I am right and when I am wrong
When I feel lost like I don’t have a plan
You tell me to remember who I am

Then I saw your smile on my tiny screen
And I cried like I did that night that it rained
I thought that you were leaving but what did I know
Oh my God that was 30 years ago

When I start to fly I know I’ll be fine
Cause I am yours and you are mine

Every night we have words
Some are written down and some can be heard
I think you listen you hear what I say
I couldn’t go on any other way

I thought that you were leaving but what did I know
Oh my God that was 30 years ago

When I start to fly I know I’ll be fine
Cause I am yours and you are mine
Track Name: See the Devil Run
Sunday morning ain’t a cloud in the sky
In an old sanctuary hidden by the Memphis skyline
I take my seat in the front row
Closer to God, closer to the show

CHORUS
Let the tambourine ring and the organ hum
Gather ‘round good people
You’re gonna see the devil run
Let your body dance and your heart give love
Gather ‘round good people
You’re gonna see the devil run

In their best church hats and their bright colored suits
The man with the microphone gives the a cue
They come to the front with their hands in the air
He waves the white towel and they dance like they don’t care

CHORUS

In comes the good reverend with a smile on his face
In robes and white gloves he stands so strong in this place
And then he starts singing like its coming straight out of heavens gates
Better that “Love and Happiness”, better than “Standing in the Rain”

CHORUS
Track Name: Highway Rider
I heard the wings of a buzzard in my ear
It’s cold here in Texas but it’s that time of year
I came up from the coast and it was fine
There’s a little place hanging on to the earth that I could make mine

CHORUS
May these six wheels take me far
Everyday I move on
Time is money and I got nothing but time
And a highway rider

Home is where the heart is, ain’t that a shame
I can’t seem to keep my heart in the same place
I’ll take to the wind, I’ll take to the sky
Ce la vie till I die

CHORUS

I like the wind, I like the rain
I like the way you said my name
I like the look in your eye
I don’t ever want to say goodbye
but I’m a highway rider
Track Name: Wild Bird
A wild bird, a humming bird and a lark
I keep you locked up in a locket close to my heart
Go to heaven on a big jet plane get your passport stamped and come back again
Tell me stories about the good old days
When everyone I know and love was safe

CHORUS
When everybody is under ground
Rain won’t stop it keeps falling down
And I don’t know who to blame
For the things I cannot change

Now I’m half way across the country
Watching storms blow away my city
Hoping everyone there will be left alone, safe and sound when I get back home
Telling stories about the good old days
When everyone I know and love was safe

CHORUS

I’m not God, I can’t turn back time
I can’t move, my hands are tied
I’ve called and called but I can’t get through
Sitting here and I think of you

CHORUS
