Track Name: Rumbling down the track
Rumbling down the track

I know we can’t change our past,
And only faded memories they now last,
But I’ll keep on trying to find,
You standing there just waiting for me,
But there’s no one there and all I see,
Just a faded memory inside my mind,

You’re gone like an east bound train,
Heading out the station in the pouring rain,
Just rumbling down the track,
On a one way ticket never coming back,

Sometimes I think about you,
I’m not too proud to admit,
You’ve crossed my mind over the years,
Been talking to myself about you,
Why I didn’t change for you,
Like a ghost oh you disappeared,

(repeat chorus)

As the sun comes down over these streets,
I feel a cold wind blowing over me,
There’s something oh is in the air,
Kind of feeling oh you can’t forget,
Like you my one regret,
The one that got away,

(repeat chorus)

Track Name: Ghost of Larry Jon
Ghost of Larry Jon

Woke up in the cold air of the night,
Saw an old man just driving through life,
The dream that woke me seemed so real,
American Outlaw with just, with just one hand on the wheel,
And he said…

Just look at life through the windshield,
Not the rear-view mirror and drive on,
Just keep, keep your eyes on the road,
Riding shotgun with the ghost of Larry Jon,

Pulled over just outside Suwanee,
Then we shared a few little stories,
Talked about the old days down on the row,
Said he wouldn’t change a damn thing, just to let you know,
And he said….

(repeat chorus)
Replayed his words about the times on the road,
Thought about my own life and how it unfolds,
I learned to be myself and stay true,
Live in the moment and be blessed to do what you want to do,

(repeat chorus) 2x

Track Name: Go all in
Go All In

Sitting around the table,
It's a quarter past two,
With dark sunglasses,
And ice cold labatt blue,
I've got a pair of aces,
And a river down below,
305's in my pocket,
And it's time for me to show,

But I go all in,
And I go all in,
But I may not win,
But I go all in,
Yeah, yeah,

Drinks at the casino,
While my woman's back in the room,
I've been getting the cards all night,
And I'm never going back anytime soon,

(repeat chorus)

Sitting around the table,
It's a quarter past three,
With dark sunglasses,
Dealer can't be staring at me,
Sitting around the table,
With a pair of aces,
Ice cold beer,
And there staring at my face,

(repeat chorus)

(instrument solos)

Track Name: From here
From Here

Just left town and wanted to say,
You don't dream whats on our way,
No you know what we see,
All this is needed to be free,

From Here, yes, From here,
The world looks so clear,
Hey, From here,
Just looking, out your rearview mirror,
Hey man, the coast is clear,
Can't you see it from here?
Oh, from here,

Drive 1200 miles miles to see you again,
It was all worth it to me to with my friend,
Drive to the coast with the sun on my back,
Driving there never looking back,
never looking back at you and me,
oh now back at you and me,

(repeat chorus)

Left town and I wanted to say,
You don't dream what's on our way,
No you don't know what we see,
All this is needed oh oh to be free,
You set me free,
Yes from here, yes from here,
oh from here, yea, yea,
oh from here, from here,

Track Name: You compete me
You complete me

As we make our wedding day plans,
As we walk down the aisle hand in hand,
Like footprints in the sand,
You complete me, oh you make, me a better man,

As we plant our family tree,
All the roots are you and me,
This bumpy road finally ends,
Cause you complete me oh you are, my best friend,

Since that day I met you,
I've wanted to grow old with you,
In your arms I reside,
You are my bride,
And I love you, yes I do, only you

Every tear you have wept,
You forgive me when I slip,
Like footprints in the sand,
You complete me oh you make me a better man,

(repeat chorus)

And as I look into your eyes,
I see love and I realize,
This bumpy road finally ends,
Cause you complete me you are my best friend,
Yes you complete me, oh you make me a better man,
Cause you complete me oh you are, my best friend,
Yes you complete me, oh you are, my best friend,
