Track Name: Change
I AIN’T LOOKING FOR NO ONE TO BLAME

SITTING ON MY HIGH HORSE RIDING ON THE RANGE

it’s HARD WORK, LOW PAY- BUT THERE AIN’T NO PLACE I’D RATHER BE

THE ONLY THING I’D CHANGE - TO END THIS DROUGHT

WE’VE BEEN PRAYING FOR RAIN.......LET IT RAIN DOWN on me

CHORUS

TAKE A PRETTY SMILE LIKE YOURS AND A GOOD OLD BOY LIKE ME,

AND WHAT YOU’VE GOT IS A WAY TO MAKE THINGS GREAT

IN THE LONE STAR STATE

YOU’VE GOT SO MUCH TALENT & YOU SHOULD BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE

IS THERE ANY WAY THERE’S ANY ROOM IN THERE FOR ME?


CHORUS- WHY’S SHE RUNNING AWAY, LIKE A RIVER I’LL NEVER TAME. IS SHE

JUST GOING THROUGH A PHASE?.... THE ONLY THING I’M CERTAIN OF IS CHANGE.


I HEARD THE BARTENDER SAY “HONEY, I DON’T BREAK HEARTS ANYMORE, I MEND THEM”

& THAT SHE SHOULD HAVE DONE IT LIKE THAT FROM THE START.

& I THOUGHT ABOUT YOU & ME & ALL THE HOPE & WONDER OF EVERYTHING THAT IS

TO BE & HOW THAT LOVE REALLY IS AN ART!

Track Name: Secret... the alien song
SECRET- Jeff Haislip/I Love Texas Music 2011

I really love to come out to the southwest

The sky is big and wide and the stars are bright, if you are lucky enough to see them

And I’ve been coming here since back in the ‘80’s & one time I got abducted by aliens

And they took me for a long, long ride

While they were up to their unusual semantics, bad chemistry and psycho mathematics

While they prodded and they probed. Well, I figured out the code

I FOUND THE SECRET, I’VE SEEN THE HIDDEN

THERE WILL BE PEACE ON EARTH & THE WAR WILL END IN HEAVEN

SEE HOW EVERYTHING WORKS IN TIME

TRUTH DOESN’T NEED FOR YOU & ME TO EXIST

IT’S JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS IN LIFE THAT IS

AND WHOEVER SAID THAT IGNORANCE IS BLISS

AIN’T NEVER SPENT TIME WITH A GIRL LIKE YOU …............ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS

They tried like hell to make me give birth

Got frustrated and sent me back to earth

So take my hand and come with me and we’ll dance around the galaxy

I FOUND THE SECRET, I’VE SEEN THE HIDDEN

THERE WILL BE PEACE ON EARTH & THE WAR WILL END IN HEAVEN

SEE HOW EVERYTHING WORKS IN TIME

TRUTH DOESN’T NEED FOR YOU & ME TO EXIST

IT’S JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS IN LIFE THAT IS

AND WHOEVER SAID THAT IGNORANCE IS BLISS

AIN’T NEVER SPENT TIME WITH A GIRL LIKE YOU
Track Name: Nature's Orders
I BELIEVE THAT NATURE HAS IT'S ORDERS
THIS IS WHY I AM SO DRAWN TO YOU
WOMAN WAS MADE JUST FOR A MAN
STOP TALKING. TAKE MY HAND
NATURES GIVEN US SOMETHING TO DO

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT NATURE HAS IT'S ORDERS?

WHEN YOU SEE THE STARS IN THE SKY

DO THEY TIE IT ALL TOGETHER LIKE THE TRUTH?

DOES HEAVEN REALLY MEAN FOREVER?

WHO IS YOU HEART, MIND & SOUL LONGING TO PLEASE?

BECAUSE RIGHT NOW, NATURE IS ORDERING ME TO TAKE YOU . BABY, I GOTTA TAKE YOU!
Track Name: Someone Nice
PRETTY GIRL, CRAZY WORLD
BRAND NEW LIFE, NO ONES WIFE
SHE SAID “I THINK THAT I CAN DO BETTER” &
“I’M GONNA TAKE MY TIME”, “BUT, RIGHT NOW
I’M GETTING ON THE BACK OF JEFFS BIKE &
HE’S GONNA RIDE ME ALL OVER TEXAS.
YOU CAN TELL ANYONE, WHATEVER YOU WANT
THAT WON’T CHANGE A THING OR STOP WHAT’S GOING ON
SHE SAID THAT SHE’D BEEN TREATED SO BAD FOR SO LONG
I JUST SHUT UP ………… AND WE ROLLED ON
I GUESS THAT I’VE BEEN STUMBLING THRU DEAD END JOBS
FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS. I MET HER IN A SMALL GROUP OF FRIENDS AT MY CHURCH.
I SAID, “GIRL, GET ON THE BACK OF MY BIKE! & WE ROLLED DOWN SOUTH CONGRESS
& ENDED UP AT HOMESLICE. AS WE SHARED THE MARGHARITA, WE TALKED ABOUT
EVERYTHING FROM CHRIST TO PARADISE.
& YOU CAN TELL ANYONE WHATEVER YOU WANT
BUT THAT WON’T CHANGE A THING OR STOP WHAT’S GOING ON
FIND SOMEONE NICE IF YOU’VE BEEN TREATED WRONG
AND ROLL ON………………
Track Name: Legend in the Big Bend
MANY A MAN HAS PASSED THRU THIS LAND LOOKING FOR FREEDOM

WHICH CAN BE ELUSIVE, GET YOUR HEAD IN A NOOSE OR STARE DOWN A LOADED GUN

WHERE JUSTICE AND PEACE TAKE CARE OF ITSELF

WITH A STRONG SWIFT VENGANCE

BUT WHAT BECAME OF IT, WAS A LEGEND IN BIG BEND

THE STARS SO BRIGHT, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

YOU CAN EAT THEM FROM THE SKY WITH A SPOON

OR WIND ON DOWN THE SOLITARIO, LIT UP BY THE COMANCHE MOON

ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE AND THE ARE NO PRETENDERS

BUT WHAT BECAME OF THEM WAS A LEGEND IN THE BIG BEND

THE LEGEND LIVES AND THE LEGEND BREATHES AND IT’S AS ALIVE TODAY AS IT WILL EVER BE

ALL THEY EVER WANTED WAS THEY’RE FREEDOM

ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE SO THERE ARE NO PRETENDERS

AND WHAT BECAME OF THEM, WAS A LEGEND IN THE BIG BEND
Track Name: Southwest Lament
I’M WATCHING FROM DOWN THE STREET (road or somehow ‘in view’)
PAST THE POLICE CARS & CAUTION TAPE (anyways it’s a crime scene)
DON’T CROSS THE LINE ‘CAUSE IT’S A BLOODY SCENE (you know what I’m sayin’?)
IT’S GONNA heartaches ON BOTH SIDES OF THIS STREET
I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A GOOD & HONEST MAN (..............”) )
TRIED TO GIVE HER THE BEST LifE THAT I CAN
I CAME HOME EARLY & FOUND THEM IN OUR BED
IN AN ACT OF PASSION, I JUST SEEN RED
THE LOOK ON HER FACE AS SHE GOT UP TO DEFEND
THE SITUATION THAT SHE GOT HERSELF IN
I COULDN’T HELP IT THE SCENE WAS SET
AND WITH ONE BLOW I BROKE HER LITTLE NECK
next thing I know, it’s just me and him
he left himself vulnerable when he went for his pants
well I took his life WITH MY BARE HANDS
& WATCHED HIM STARE AT ME AS HE gasped for air
LORD JESUS CHRIST IS ALL WHO CAN SAVE
AND I’LL WANDER LIKE A RUNAWAY SLAVE
LIKE A SAD SONG YOU CAN’T GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD
THAT MAKES YOU CRY
BUT IT KEEPS PLAYING OVER & OVER AGAIN
Track Name: Magdelena Sonora
Magdelena, Sonora
Jeff Haislip/I Love Texas Music

After the divorce I just had to get away

going down to Sonora- almost a fatal mistake

I was in the wrong place at the wrong time

when the cartel guns moved in

Robbed us all of everything, left us all for dead

Lost & out of water, with a bullet in my back

that was meant for my head

I guess I'm glad about that

100 miles south of Douglas, Arizona

Magdalena, Sonora- and a big hot desert- hardly any water

A drug mule named 'Coyote Lips' appeared with a big smile on his face

big gun on his hip....... mean as a snake

he gave me water & this stuff he called marching powder

Strapped a backpack & shoes ............ And off into the desert we went

and we walked for days. And every couple hours, we stopped for water & more marchin' powder

and we walked forever, and I thought it never would end

& I new I was good as dead, but I didn't care!

I just never want to see her face again.
Track Name: Why Would Anybody Go There
Out in west Texas. A hundred miles from nowhere.

There's a town & when you go there, you step back in time.

I've heard people ask "why would anybody go there"

I say- maybe it's to get back your mind.

A couple months ago I spent some time in Phoenix, man, that city has grown.

When I looked up in the sky and saw the planes leaving chem-trails.

Looked around and everyone was staring at their phone.

Out here I don't even get phone signal. So I feel like I can really get away.

So, I guess I'll get your tweet when I get some reception

Right now, I'm just going to enjoy my day.

Life is made of moments...........

Out in west Texas. A hundred miles from nowhere...............
