Track Name: Heading West
I've packed my suitcase and I'm heading west
Taking only what I need and I'm throwing away the rest

I've got my sights set on freedom in the great outdoors and beyond
And I don't need anything to tie me down

A young man from New England just lookin for some peace of mind
Heading out on the open road curious about what I might find

I've got my sights set on freedom in the great outdoors and beyond
And I don't need anything to tie me down

I left here with a pile of money and I spent it quite fast
There's a part of me that's infinite, but money ain't made to last

I've got my sights set on freedom in the great outdoors and beyond
And I don't need anything to tie me down

I don't need anything but I've got to keep on moving
and I'ver got these six strings to keep me grooving

I've got my sights set on freedom in the great outdoors and beyond
And I don't need anything to tie me down

I slept out on the rockies, and my car broke down on the plains
Spent ten months in the desert, it nearly drove me insane

I've got my sights set on freedom in the great outdoors and beyond
And I don't need anything to tie me down
And I don't need anything to tie me down
Track Name: El Centro Blues
Jet planes are flying overhead
It's so hot I wish I was dead
I've got the El Centro Blues
Around here the way people drive
It's amazing that I'm still alive
I've got the El Centro Blues

Air so hot it hurts to talk
Ground so hot it hurts to walk
Down in Stark Field they find some shade
Take a rest, spend the night, and they've got it made

They've got the El Centro Blues
El Centro Azul

Cockroaches in the silverware drawer
Out of water gotta get some more
Cockroaches climbing up my wall
Keep a roach in my pocket to break my fall

I've got the El Centro Blues

Palm trees swaying in the breeze
It's the first of October still a hundred degrees
pastel sunsets pink and true
softens my El Centro Blues
Track Name: Bandits on the Beltway
There's fire on the mountain
It's looking bad from where I stand
There's fire on the mountain
It's looking bad from where I stand
There's fire on the mountain
and all they got are guns in their hands

Something very strange
is happening on the hill
Something very strange
is happening on the hill
If I don't find out soon
I know in time I will

There's bandits on the beltway
and they're robbing us blind
There's bandits on the beltway
and oh good lord they're robbing us blind
If I dig a little deeper well
I'm afraid of what I might find
Track Name: Movin' to the Country
Living in the city is like having a disease
It makes me sick, it makes me tired, it brings me to my knees

That's why I'm moving to the country
Moving to the country
Where I can find some peace of mind
Where I can find some peace of mind

I wanna live in a nice quiet place
Where I can be really far away from the rat race

That's why I'm moving to the country
Moving to the country
Where I can find some peace of mind
Where I can find some peace of mind

I wanna live in a nice small town
Where I know everybody that I see around

That's why I'm moving to the country
Moving to the country
Where I can find some peace of mind
Where I can find some peace of mind

I wanna be surrounded by the trees
In a nice quiet place where I can raise a family

That's why I'm moving to the country
Moving to the country
Where I can find some peace of mind
Where I can find some peace of mind
Where I can find some peace of mind

Where I can find a piece of land
And I can settle down and take my time
Track Name: Up to No Good
This is not how it works
I don't go looking for trouble
It just finds me, It just finds me
and it usually lurks
among the weeds and the rubble
and it reminds me, and it reminds me

That being up to no good, ain't all that bad
Being up to no good ain't so bad
Being up to no good, ain't all that bad
Being up to no good ain't so bad

Take your dog for a walk
In your neighborhood
as long as you can keep him on a leash

Don't waste your time
Being prim and proper
Don't waste your time smoothing out every crease

Being up to no good, ain't all that bad
Being up to no good ain't so bad
Being up to no good, ain't all that bad
Being up to no good ain't so bad

You gotta get a little rough around the edges
You gotta be a little crass sometimes

You gotta use some unsavory language
When you just have to speak your mind

Being up to no good, ain't all that bad
Being up to no good ain't so bad
Being up to no good, ain't all that bad
Being up to no good ain't so bad

You gotta get a little high
If you've been feeling low
Sometimes you gotta sleep on the streets
If you've got no place to go

Being up to no good, ain't all that bad
Being up to no good ain't so bad
Being up to no good, ain't all that bad
Being up to no good ain't so bad
Track Name: Let Me Tell You
Let me tell you something
honest and sincere
We have been to hell and back
Haven't we my dear?
Let me tell you something
let me make it very clear
I am yours and yours alone
There should be nothing left to fear

Won't you come a little closer
So I can whisper in your ear
All the things that you want to know
and all the things that you need to hear?

Nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah nah nah

Let me tell you something
honest and sincere
We have been to hell and back
Haven't we my dear?
Let me tell you something
let me make it very clear
I am yours and yours alone
There should be nothing left to fear

We should be rejoicing
and overflowing with cheer
because we've found each other
and been together all these years

Nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah nah nah

Let me tell you something
honest and sincere
We have been to hell and back
Haven't we my dear?
Let me tell you something
let me make it very clear
I am yours and yours alone
There should be nothing left to fear

Won't you come a little closer
So I can whisper in your ear
All the things that you want to know
and all the things that you need to hear?

Nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah nah nah
Track Name: Time
When I was hungry, you shared your food
When I was thirsty, you shared your wine
When I was in a dark and lonely mood
You were a true friend of mine

But time hasn't been so kind
No time hasn't been so kind
It's taken some good friends of mine

When I was homeless you shared your abode
When I was curious you spoke your mind
You said life is such a heavy load
But behind it all, your eyes just shined

But time hasn't been so kind
No time hasn't been so kind
It's taken some good friends of mine

I'm mourning the loss of a time and a place
but friends come and go with a life on the road
I'll remember you when I see a familiar face
and when a good story is told

But time hasn't been so kind
No time hasn't been so kind
It's taken some good friends of mine
Track Name: Going Home
10,000 days, and one lonely night
was long enough for me to go blind
and then regain my sight
I'm going home

So many lovers
that all broke my heart
but it wouldn't have mattered none
'cause I was broken right from the start
I'm going home

As it is within, so it is without
Don't you give in to self pity
Be wary of your self doubt

And I will never, ever give up the fight
I will just keep on reaching
reaching for the light

I'm going home
