Heading West 03:38
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

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

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

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

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

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

Time 04:53
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

Going Home 03:30
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
