Lyrics

 Goodbye Highway (We're Looking for Kingdom Come)

 

Verse:

We didn't fall on hard times

hard times fell on us

the plant closed three years ago

and our future turned to rust

You worked part-time at Wal Mart

I was down to pickin' cans

we made it work a little while

till it was more than we could stand

 

Chorus:

We took the Goodbye Highway

let our engine run

we'll ride the Goodbye Highway

till we find Kingdom Come

 

We're looking for Kingdom Come

 

Verse:

We didn't just let it happen

people let us down

now we see that same story

in every city, every town.

Plain folks are trying to make it

all but those with a silver spoon

but times are hard and getting harder

it seems like maybe soon

 

Chorus:

They'll take the Goodbye Highway

let their engines run

they'll ride the Goodbye Highway

till they find Kingdom Come

 

They're looking for Kingdom Come

 

Chorus:

We're on the Goodbye Highway

our old life is done

we're on the Goodbye Highway

looking for Kingdom Come

 

We're looking for Kingdom Come

 

Tag end:

We're looking for Kingdom Come

We're looking for Kingdom Come

We're looking for Kingdom Come

We're looking for Kingdom Come

Lyrics

November Leaves
By Stanfield Major and Mike Downing
Copyright 2014 by Major and Downing

November leaves
Are dry and forsaken
Only a few
Still hang from the trees
All the rest 
Blew away in October
That's how she left,
How she left me to grieve

Chorus
November leaves
Are falling' 'round me
I'll be facing' December
When November leaves

She wanted a change
And change wasn't in me
I would survive
Or so I believed
Now I'm no sure
I have a future
Now I'm all alone
driftin' in this breeze

Chorus

Story

I wrote the lyric shortly after I wrote "I Don't Count My Chickens". Gilbert just finished recording the demo. We're on a down home music jag.

Lyrics

 My Travelin’ Days Are Over

 

Verse 1:

Don’t hand me down my walkin’ cane

Don’t hand me down my hat

My travelin’ days are over

I’ve had enough of that

 

Verse 2:

Get me out my rockin’ chair

Pour more bourbon in my glass

My travelin’ days are over

I’ll watch those trains go past

 

Chorus:

My traveling days are over

My workin’ days are done

I’ll do my rockin’ in a chair

Tryin' to warm my old bones in the sun

 

Verse 3:

Now it's time for my rockin’ chair

Pour more bourbon in my glass

My travelin’ days are over now

Those trains go by so fast

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Repeat Verse 3

Story

I wrote the lyric a little over a year ago. Gilbert just finished recording the demo.

Lyrics

I Don’t Count My Chickens

 

I count my eggs

Very carefully

What the future holds

Means a lot to me

 

But now I know

That the future’s gray

A fox can come

And steal those eggs away

 

Chorus:

SO I DON’T COUNT MY CHICKENS

NOT EVEN ONE HEN’S TOOTH

I DON’T COUNT MY CHICKENS

TILL THEY COME HOME TO ROOST

 

Bridge:

Cause a fox can come

In the dark of night

And leave you with nothin’

In the morning light

 

Chorus:

NO I DON’T COUNT MY CHICKENS

NOT EVEN ONE HEN’S TOOTH

I DON’T COUNT MY CHICKENS

TILL THEY COME HOME TO ROOST

 

Repeat Bridge 2x

Story

I wrote the lyric in 2010. RuslanTroknyuk, a fellow Kompozer from Ukraine, wrote the music.

The music's pretty different from my usual style, but I think it fits this lyric.

Lyrics

I've Got Holes In My Head (Eternity)


I’ve got holes

In my head

They let the dreams out

 

I’ve got holes

In my head

They let the screams out

 

Now the world knows

‘Bout the holes

In my head

 

I’ve got holes

In my heart

From bad lovin’

 

I’ve got holes

In my heart

Dreams came to nothin’

 

Dreams get broken

But it can be a start

 

And now the world knows

‘Bout the holes

In my heart

 

I’ve got holes

Where substance

used to be

 

I’ve got holes

That don’t even

Belong to me

 

But holes are holy

Don’t you agree?

 

And through holes

There can flow

Eternity

 

I’ve got holes in my head

I’ve got holes in my heart

I’ve got dreams and screams

Tearing me apart

 

I’ve got holes everywhere

I’ve got holes yet to be

I’ve got holes in my head

And through them I can see

 

Eternity

 

Eternity

Eternity

Eternity

Eternity
