Track Name: Good Love
Gimme good lovin’
Gimme fine romance
I might look pretty rough on the outside, mama
But please give me a chance

Went down to Louisiana
Left my debts and worries too
But all I found down there were these
Sad, Lowdown, dirty blues

Got a job up in Brooklyn
Way down in a factory mill
If I don’t see my pay soon, babe
I’m gonna find me somebody to kill

Got back to Pittsburg’
Southside city streets
Was robbed by the courthouse
After being jailed by local police

Gonna find my home soon, mama
Arrive with the sun in my eyes
For now I’m lost out in Kansas
And the moon is on the rise
And I ain’t got no witness
But last nite I swear I died
Track Name: Take Me To the Water (AQUARIUS)
Take me to the water, Baby
Take me to the shore
I want it bad
Couldn’t want it more
To the water, Baby
To that shore

If you wanna lead me down
I won’t fall astray
But no need to lead me, Baby
Honey, I’ll find my way
If you wanna lead me down
I won’t fall astray
We can cleanse ourselves
With the blood we pay

Take me to the water, Baby
Take me to the shore
If I do right unto you
Will you give me everything and more?
To the water, Baby
To that shore

I’m a lover, Baby
Not a saint
But if you let me in, Honey
I can reconcile your sin
I’m a lover, Baby
Not a saint

Transition
I’m gonna write it down for you then
So you can understand all the shit that I’m feeling
And if we don’t do what we promised to do
I’ll thank God that he even blessed me to know you
Reaction
Now you’re finally back from the war
And now you realize what this shit was for
And if all these time bombs were disabled all wrong
My memory’s been fuzzy for some time
Been too long

Take me to the water, Baby
Take me to the shore
If I do right unto you
Will you give me the world and more?
To the water, Baby
To that shore
Track Name: Spirit of A Cosmonaut
I’ve been alone
I’ve been silent in my grave
I’ve been praying, Lord
Been trying to get saved
I’ve been telling these lies
Been writing these songs
But I’ve been doing more
Right than wrong

I can hear the roaring thunder
Rising up just through them hills
I’ve been hollering
Hallelujah
Trying to get my fill

I’ll burn my gypsy skin
All night and all day
I’m preaching the word of God
Got nothing left to say
Some day Baby
I’m gonna tear you right limb from limb
If you can’t ever satisfy
My Master Sin

I think somebody’s gonna find you
Lock you up
And throw away the key
I think somebody’s gonna teach you
How to throw away all your
Goddamn misery

I’ve been alone
I’ve been silent in my grave
I’ve been praying, Lord
Been trying to get saved
I’ve been telling these lies
Been writing these songs
But I’ve been doing more
Right than wrong

I can hear the roaring thunder
Rising up just through them trees
I’ve been hollering
Hallelujah
Right down here
Upon my knees
Track Name: King of the Highway
I WAS A POET, YOU WERE A DANCER
I’D WRITE YOU LOVE SONGS AND YOU’D SPIN AND SPIN
I STOLE A ROSE FROM THE GARDEN OF EDEN
AND I’LL TAME ANY SERPENT YOU COME ACROSS

HERE I GO, KING OF THE HIGHWAY
I’M BUSTED BUT I’LL FIGURE IT OUT
HERE I GO, KING OF THE HIGHWAY
I’M BUSTED BUT MY WHEELS STILL TURN

I WROTE A LETTER, SIGNED IT ALIAS
CAUSE MY NAME YOU’LL NEVER SEE NOR HEAR
YOU WERE ALL CLOAK AND DAGGER, I WAS JUST A LONESOME TRAVELER
YOU WERE TRYING YOUR BEST TO CRUCIFY ME

HERE I GO, KING OF THE HIGHWAY
I’M BUSTED BUT I’LL FIGURE IT OUT
HERE I GO, KING OF THE HIGHWAY
I’M BUSTED BUT MY WHEELS STILL TURN

MAYBE WHEN YOU HAVE NO DOUBT
MAYBE WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE ME
MAYBE WHEN YA GOT IT ALL FIGURED OUT
I’LL GIVE YOU A HINT, “IT’S LIKE THE CRASHIN’ OF THE SEA”

HERE I GO, KING OF THE HIGHWAY
I’M BUSTED BUT I’LL FIGURE IT OUT
HERE I GO, KING OF THE HIGHWAY
I’M BUSTED BUT I’LL MAKE IT THRU
Track Name: Strange Feelin'
She just goes right on how she please
Even though I crawl on hand and knee
Singing darling why’d you have to leave?
Now I have this strange, strange feeling when I think of you

Today was filled with dreams; I walked on down the road
Tossing around some favorite tunes from that lost, sweet soul
Some day I’ll remember them when I’m grey and old
But now I have this strange, strange feeling when I think of you
Now I have this strange, strange feeling when I think of you

*She sang with high resounding flow
Slender fingers traveled to and fro
Heaven’s battle was silenced by the sound (2x)
But by then there was no whisper, no more of singing girl’s song to be sung
By then there was no whimper, no more nothing, singing girl’s song was forever done

Turned around and it all fell from view
Splashed cold water in my face to try and make it through
Held lost luck in hand felt like it was all that I could do
But now I have this strange, strange feeling when I think of you

*Looked up to see a shooting star
It wrapped and spun and fell apart
Her face still hung there with its spark
Night-time holds us all in her dark

No surprises now Babe

*Woke up to see a shooting star
We had our fun, now it’s time to part
Her face stood still, it lost its spark
Night-time takes us to the dark

No promises now Babe

White dress someday it will all be over soon
Couldn’t play your life by instinct, you just had to follow rules
A quiet rose in the dark was all I could give to you
Now I have this strange, strange feeling when I think of you

It’s mystery, it’s passion, Honey, I can’t think of anything but you
It’s misery, it’s romance, it is nothing, when I think of you
Baby, it’s just this strange, strange feeling when I think you
