Track Name: The Wrong Road
C Am
I know I'm going down the wrong road
F C
But I'm going down just the same
C Am
Burdened by my heavy load
F G
I can't remember her name
Am C
There was a time our love flowed
F C
We were in the love Hall of Fame
We're in self destruct mode
Looking for someone else to blame

Some things you give, some things are owed
And some things you just lay your claim
Some angry seas we rode
But that's the name of the game

There was a time our love would explode
There was a time we weren't lame
But our feelings erode
Every time we taste your shame

Am G F C Am G F G

I know this love once glowed
I know there was once was a flame
It's like we forgot the magic code
Look at what we became
Track Name: One Woman
One woman in my arms
One woman by my side
There's no cause for alarm
Neither one is my bride
Neither one will be denied

One woman in my bed
One woman on the phone
If I could look ahead
Stare into the unknown
I'd say I won't be sleepin' alone

My friends tell me that they're concerned
That I should settle down
They worry 'bout the lessons learned
What goes around comes around

One woman on my mind
One woman on her way
Much pleasure we will find
Until the break of day
Until we're too tired to play

One woman with a smile
One woman with a plan
To make it worth my while
She says I'll be a fan
Of what she can do for her man
Track Name: That Old Guitar
D
I had this old guitar
G
I sold my house to buy it
A
Then we lived in the car
G D
With what could fit

I went to work that morning
With not a worry in my heart
And without a warning
She took it apart

Bm
That woman I call my wife
She took a kitchen knife
And she stabbed that ole guitar
Don't know where all the pieces are

So I sat there to think
Bout what she was trying to say
Had me stiffer drink
And I started to pray

When finally it came to me
Don't know what took me so long
She was saying that she loves me
Saying write another song

A Bm
The songs don't live in that old guitar
G A
You my darling are a shooting star
Track Name: Sugar and Spice
G
Girls are made of sugar and spice
C
and evil
G Am
Though I've loved me one from time D
to time
Girls may be nice but they're not simple
Some only want you in your prime

They tell you this but they want that
And do these jeans make me look fat?
My mother warned me about you
I should've known that it was true

Girls are kind and sweet and scheming
Though some of them have made me smile
They'll kick you out when you're still dreaming
But they'll expect the same life style

Am - Em - Am - D

I have a girl these days and she is
stunning
She makes my heart sing for days
I've loved her since the beginning
I'm crazy bout her simple ways
Track Name: That Old Chair
In my backyard there's a chair
Pointed towards the setting sun
I like to go sit there
When the evening's just begun

And I ponder about nothing
My mind as empty as your heart
I know you won't wear my ring
Now that we live apart

Sometimes I hum an old folk song
Sometimes I close my eyes and swear
That nothing's bad, nothing's wrong
When I sit in that old chair

I smell the smell of fresh cut grass
Drifting from another yard
I see the world through the stained glass
Of the past that I discard

I hear the wind rustle through the leaves
The songs of love and happiness
I feel the thrill of the thieves
I remember when you said yes

Am C
The sun comes down behind the trees G
Sitting there, hugged by the breeze D
My world finally at ease
Am
I listen to the buzzy bees
Flying to flowers as they please
As I dream of soothing seas

Tonight I hum an old folk song
Tonight I close my eyes and swear
That nothing's bad, nothing's wrong
When I sit in my old chair

In my backyard there's a chair
Pointed towards the setting sun
I like to go sit there
When the evening's just begun
Track Name: When The End Comes
When the end comes
You watch your last sunrise
When the end comes
It takes you by surprise

And the angels sing your name
The angels sing your pain
The big door swings open
Welcome home, son

When your time comes
Tears in your eyes
When your time comes
Did you get your big prize

And the angels sing your name
The angels sing your pain
The big door swings open
Welcome home, son
Track Name: The Day I Lost It All
well I remember the day I lost it all
I remember the feeling of free fall
Sometimes life just throws you a nasty curve ball
And I remember the day I lost it all

I lost my job never saw it coming
Went home, thirsty for something numbing
That's when my wife said go sleep down the hall
Yeah I remember the day I lost it all

whatever happened to for better or for worse
Was it a promise, or was it a curse?
My life is down to waiting for the hearse
And that's not something you can rehearse.

I need a bridge, tall enough to fly from
I wanna hear the wind in my ears, whistle and hum
Kid smiles and laughs, right now I can't recall
But I remember the day I lost it all
Track Name: I'm A Dad
There's a boat anchored somewhere, with her name on it
There's a life we can share with our name on it
Don't need much of anything
A smile, a nod, a simple ring

There's a child playing on the beach
Big smile on his face
There's a dad right there within reach thankful for the grace
Child reaches for his hand
As they walk together across the sand

And he says Thank God for my little angel
Thank God for the love he brings
Miss you so my darling
Thank God for the memories, thank God for the times we had
Thank God I'm a dad

There's a heaven in the sky somewhere
That's where your smiles live now
Someday I'll run my hand through your hair
You'll kiss my brow
The three of us will laugh and play
Looking at the dawn of a new day
Track Name: See You Tonight
It's been years since we met
But we played hard to get
We said words we regret

It's been months since we kissed
Your hand on my wrist
You know you've been missed

But I'm gonna see you tonight
I'm gonna hold you tight
Gonna make it all right

Yeah I'm gonna see you tonight
Take our love to a new height
Until the first morning light

It's been weeks since we smiled
Honey you drive me wild
Stay with me a while

It's been days since you reached
For my hand at the beach
And robbed me of all speech

But I'm gonna see you tonight
I'm gonna hold you tight
Gonna make it all right

Yeah I'm gonna see you tonight
Take our love to a new height
Until the first morning light

Darling, fair warning
I'm gonna love you till morning
Track Name: The Things We Say...
The things we say when we're in love
The things we do but we're not sure of
The things we think but we can't say aloud
The times we want to jump and shout

The ones we hurt when we're in love
When it's no longer time for kids gloves
The things we think but we can't say aloud
Because deep, deep down we're not so proud

F G
So we look at the sky
Am
We try so hard to smile
We try so hard not to cry

The things we say when life goes on
The promises we make at the break of dawn
The things we think but we can't say aloud
Cause it's lot like falling from a cloud
