LyricsWandering Child
(Haynes, Abts)
Buzzard Rock Music (BMI), Jake Henry Music (ASCAP)

In a lonely dream a boy goes walking
Drowned in shame, drunken with emotion
He says his world is just an ocean
says his poor heart too many times been broken

The bones in your closet
Once bore the skin of your fathers
Guess that means it’s out of your hands
Or you’re too tired, too tired to bother

Help me now, save the wandering child

Now that you’re broken, who’ll clean up this mess
Now that your vision is blinded, I guess
You say “where do I fall, now that my strength is gone
and who do I tell, ‘I’ve done nothing wrong'”

Float upon the river till the water runs still
Dive to the bottom-got to drink from the well
Till I find who I am, till I find out who I am
Now that there’s no one to show me

Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child

In a lonely dream a boy keeps walking
Drowned in shame, drunken with emotion
He says his kill-it is his crown
Says his angels are no longer looking down

A horse and a monkey, no kids and no wife
A hell of a way for a hero to spend his life
Time to unearth the worm
Let this bridge fall down and burn

Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child

Thorazine Shuffle
(Haynes, Abts)
Buzzard Rock Music (BMI), Jake Henry Music (ASCAP)

Stand by to stand by
Ain’t no need to worry today
Thorazine shuffle make everything OK
I know how you feel
You say you need your highs and lows
But what if you could take your pain
And just let it go

Step right back and watch me now
I’ll show you how it’s done
Stay right here with me now
Till the damage is done
And the damage is done

Time drags by
When you’re boring
Don’t care what you do care what you say
There comes a time
When you got to let the monster inside you
Let him come on out, come on out and play

Step right back and watch me now
I’ll show you how it’s done
Stay right here with me now
Till the damage is done

Step right back and watch me now
I’ll show you how it’s done
Stay right here with me now
Till the damage is done
And the damage is done

Stand by to stand by
Ain’t no need to worry today
Thorazine shuffle make everything OK

No Need To Suffer
(Haynes)
Buzzard Rock Music (BMI>

Woman – suspended in time
Heal yourself – no need to stay blind
Spiral dreams – too much to bear
Spiraling who knows where

Let me take you down
No need to suffer anymore
Wrap yourself in the warmth of my arms
And we’ll lie awake till sleep overtakes us
Can’t you see
There’s no need to suffer anymore

Defenseless, trapped in a cage
Blissfulness devoured by the rage
Fate’s been cruel, though the years have been kind
You’ve go to heal yourself – no need to stay blind

Let me take you down
No need to suffer anymore
Wrap yourself in the warmth of my arms
And we’ll laugh out loud while the earth dies screaming

Can’t you see
There’s no need to suffer anymore

And we’ll fly away
And look down at the earth below
Fly away and we’ll never look back
No, we’ll never look back

Woman suspended in time
Heal yourself – no need to stay blind

Gambler’s Roll
(Haynes, Neel)
Buzzard Rock Music (BMI), Songs of Universal (BMI), Song Pantry Music Inc (ASCAP)

The dealer sits alone in the dark
A cigarette shines on his very last card
Everything he had – he watched it come and go
On a Gambler’s roll

A cold wind blows a young girl’s world apart
She bet it all on the jack of hearts
She gained her freedom – but she lost her soul
On a gambler’s roll

The Gambler he rides – rides on a fool’s train
Trading silver for gold
But his luck will change – time takes it toll
On a gambler’s roll

The dealer knows – it’s just about his last game
Not even she knows the sorrow and the shame
As the .45 deals a fatal blow
On a gambler’s roll

The Gambler he rides – rides on a fool’s train
Trading silver for gold
But his luck will change – time takes it toll
On a gambler’s roll

Look On Yonder Wall

I Shall Return
(Haynes)
Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

As this wheel goes ’round and I search to find my way
Struggle just to hold on through an ordinary day
I do believe I’m slipping away

But I shall return though I’m losing myself
I shall return
I shall return from the depths of my own hell
I shall return

Fate should not have blinded me
For your beauty steals my eyes
and what good is my wisdom
when there are no words to say
How I feel everyday

But I shall return though I’m losing myself
I shall return
I shall return from the depths of my own hell
I shall return

Daylight finds me sleeping dreaming of my youth
But darkness calls my name out loud
And I answer to the truth

But I shall return though I’m losing myself
I shall return
I shall return from the depths of my own hell
I shall return

Oh, I shall return though I’m losing myself
I shall return
I shall return from the depths of my own hell
I shall return

Soulshine
(Haynes)
Buzzard Rock Music (BMI

When you can’t find the light
That got you through the cloudy days,
When the stars ain’t shinin’ bright,
You feel like you’ve lost your way,
When those candle lights of home,
Burn so very far away,
Well you got to let your soul shine,
Just like my daddy used to say.

He used to say soul shine,
It’s better than sunshine,
It’s better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Hey now people don’t mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Got to let your soul shine,
Shine ’till the break of day.

I grew up thinkin’ that I had it made,
Gonna make it on my own.
Life can take the strongest man,
Make him feel so alone.
Now and then I feel a cold wind,
Blowin’ through my achin’ bones,
I think back to what my daddy said,
He said “Boy, in the darkness before the dawn:”

Let your soul shine.
It’s better than sunshine,
It’s better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Yeah now people don’t mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Gotta let your soul shine,
Shine ’till the break of day.

Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness,
Like a woman has robbed him of his very soul.
A woman too, God knows, she can feel like this.
And when your little world seems cold,
You got to let your spirit take control.

Let you soul shine,
It’s better than sunshine,
It’s better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Lord now people don’t mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Gotta let your soul shine, Shine till the break of day.

Oh, it’s better than sunshine,
It’s better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain
Yeah now people don’t mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Gotta let your soul shine,
Shine ’till the break of day.

Mule
(Haynes, Abts, Woody)
Buzzard Rock Music (BMI), Jake Henry Music (ASCAP), Woody Music (SESAC)

Say you try
But you just can’t help your self
Say you wanna feel special
Man wanna make you feel like everybody else
Take away your freedom
Strip away your pride
Say you know you weren’t born
With the blue blood son
So take your place in line

Where’s my mule?
Where’s my forty acres
Where’s my dream
Mr Emancipator
To live this way
I might as well meet my maker
Where’s my mule?
Where’s my mule?

I say trust me
But you say it’s too much bother
Yeah, the way the man try to beat you down
Make you wanna kill your brother
So go on and bust me
For what’s in my mason jar
Yeah, I owes my soul
To the company store
How I’m doing so far?

Where’s my mule?
Where’s my forty acres
Where’s my dream
Mr Emancipator
Live this way
Might as well meet my maker
Where’s my mule?
Where’s my mule?

Where’s my mule?
Where’s my forty acres
Where’s my dream
Mr Emancipator
Live this way
Might as well meet my maker
Where’s my, my, my, my, my, my mule?
