Track Name: Bench Seat
bench seat, best girl the best feeling in the world is when she slides right up against me. On my bench seat

old dog, old friend. Tongue waggin' in the wind, still likes to ride around with me. On my bench seat

this old truck's got new tires, she's seen allot of miles. I've been from sea to shining sea, on my bench seat

my bench seat, a bed when I needed one broke down on side of the road
mexican blanket kept me from cold. if you ever had one you know just what I mean, no one knows all I've seen from my bench seat

her hand on my knee, the old possom on 103, open up the wings and feel the breeze on my bench seat
worn & cracked, let's push it all the way back & make more room for you & me on my bench seat
lonesome road, sundown, top of the hill at the edge of town
the sun ain't the only thing going down on my bench seat

my bench seat, a bed when I needed one broke down on side of the road
mexican blanket kept me from cold. if you ever had one you know just what I mean, no one knows all I've seen from my bench seat
Track Name: Carnival
when I was a child I loved the carnival, all the rides & the stuffed animals
I'd fly around in circles off the ground on a cotton candy high
as a young man, I loved the carnival, the shooting gallery and all the pretty girls. I'd wait till they walked by and swing the hammer high but I could never ring the bell
do you remember when I took you to the carnival? I shot out the star & won you that stuffed animal= the way we laughed at the funny mirrors & the way we touched in the tunnel of love
here we are again here at the carnival watching our children on the tilt a whirl. finishing the funnel cake I kiss the powdered sugar from your smile
don't it seem like life is a lot like a carnival, round & round like a ferris wheel, ups & downs, games of chance & skill. all my life, I've loved the carnival
Track Name: Hard To Get
hard to get, easy to want
just caught my stare & let me know she was
hard to get, she thinks running away makes her more attracted to me, how right she is & tonight could be a night we'll never forget so let's play hard to get
hard to get, harder to ignore as she glides across the floor
hard to get a place in line but I'll bet my last dime the last dance will be mine and tonight will be a night we'll never forget so let's play hard to get
hard to get would discourage most men, lucky for her I'm not one of them
hard to get this mystery how we play these games when all we really want is to be captured and tonight we'll never forget how we play oh, let's play, let's play hard to get, oh, let's play hard to get, oh, let's play hard to get
Track Name: The Moonlight Becomes You
the sun's gone down the moon is blue and gazing at it has me thinking of you. oh, honey, come see me soon
tonight the skies so clear that I can see uranus & jupiter from here, oh, honey, come see me soon
won't you come & see me soon? I ain't saying that you hung the moon but the moonlight becomes you
last time we were together underneath the stars we were making love like we were venus & mars oh, honey, come see me soon
you know I want to be with you everyday just wait till mercury's out of retrograde then honey, come see me soon
won't you come & see me soon? I ain't saying that you hung the moon but the moonlight becomes you
so I'll sing a neptune for whatever that's worth you know I'm saturn any man on earth oh, honey, come see me soon
I look at it all and wonder where you are across the sky falls a shooting star oh, honey come see me soon
won't you come & see me soon? I ain't saying that you hung the moon but the moonlight becomes you
Track Name: Drink
where can a man get a drink around here?
a shot of jack and an ice cold beer
because I'm dry and my mind ain't thinking to clear
where can a man get a drink around here?
where can a man find a place to stay?
a break from the weather on a cold wet day
because the road's so long & lonely
where can a man find a place to stay?
where can a guy get work that pays?
an honest job with an honest wage
and he can look in the mirror at the end of the day
where can a guy get work that pays?
because I've been out chasing horizons searching for my home in the setting sun
every night she finds me I'm wishing I had someone but when the morning comes I'm gone
where can I meet a woman who wants a man who'll love her the whole day long & the nights are full of passion and song
where can I meet a woman who wants?
how far's a man got to run? they say they've found a smokin' gun and now I'm guilty of a crime that I've never done
how far's a man got to run?
I need a place to hide some lost dark canyon where they'll never find or they'll lock me away for the rest of my life oh, I need a place to hide
because I've been out chasing horizons searching for my home in the setting sun
every night she finds me I'm wishing I had someone but when the morning comes I'm gone
Track Name: Living The Dream
I'm living the dream big silver screen, the cameras are rolling- we're setting the scene
I'm the director, supporting actor, wardrobe & everything
an epic in the making!
Living the Dream!
I'm living the dream, I feel like a king with my little castle & my little queen
my proclamation across this great nation is BE WHO YOU WANT TO BE!
BY ROYAL DECREE!
Start Living Your Dream!
I'm living the dream-a big diamond ring don't mean a thing to a guy like me
There's silver at sunrise-emeralds in your eyes-gold in the sunset
My riches are everywhere & all mine for free
Living the Dream!
I'm living the dream-peaches in cream. Well- canned peaches & powdered cream- life's how you make it, a cakes how you bake it!
So go on and take a big piece!
There's nothing so sweet as Living the Dream!
I'm living the dream-every breath that I breath-every rock, tree, bird, river or stream!
Every mountain & every canyon & everything I can see!
It's all here with me!
Living the Dream!

Track Name: She's On The Move
she left town in a hurry, the rumors are running around & everybody's worried! the whole town's going crazy with the news
the woman at the diner said she'd heard second hand that she might have left town with an oil man, all she know's is the girl is on the move
when she left town a few years back she came back in a cadillac, now that el dorado's set for cruise
she says there's things you find when you clear your mind- wheels are turning & your on the move
the post mistress answered my request but she said she's left no forwarding address! cross my heart and I swear it's true
someone told the sheriff that she was okay but he said that's all he could say maybe she's just trying to change the tune
she left town in a hurry, the rumors are running around & everybody's worried! the whole town's going crazy with the news
I talked to the girl who used to do her hair & she said she could be anywhere and a girls got to do what a girls got to do
she left town in a hurry, the rumors are running around & everybody's worried! the whole town's going crazy with the news
Track Name: Surplus Of Sanity
come on down to south county & help me micro manage this presidency we've got a surplus of sanity around here
we'll hang around a campfire and sing instead of getting caught up in that media machine, it's the damndest thing that I've ever seen
we've got everything a woman could possibly need except for a few of the luxuries but we've got a whole lot better scenery
we've got a plethora of paleontologist- a gaggle of geologist- a bevy of biologist, but I know of no apologist
the sun goes up and the sun goes down the chisos mountains are sacred ground, you know that we watch the sun set in the east
so don't let your head explode watching the media in meltdown mode
and don't forget to breathe, just come on down to south county and help me micro manage this presidency- we've got a surplus of sanity around here
we'll hang around a campfire and sing instead of getting caught up in that media machine, it's the damndest thing that I've ever seen

Track Name: Rain On The Blockchain
IF YOUR MIRED IN MEDIOCRITY & SEARCHING FOR PROSPERITY
TILL THE EARTH TO AND FRO. PLANT SOME SEEDS & LET THEM GROW
DON’T YOU KNOW THE BIBLE TELLS YOU SO

THE OTHER DAY I MET A BITCOIN BILLIONAIRE, SAID HE SEES OPPORTUNITY EVERYWHERE- “YOU’VE GOT TO GET UP OFF THE POT & DRINK THE COFFEE WHEN IT’S HOT, CAN’T YOU SEE THEY’VE OPENED PANDORA’S BOX?”

& “THEY CAN MAKE IT RAIN ON THE BLOCKCHAIN!”

HE TALKED OF A NEW TECHNOLOGY WITH SMART CONTRACTS & CRYPTO-CURRENCY
AS WE PONDERED WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS & HOW IT ALL UNFOLDS
HE ASKED ME “MR., CAN YOU WRAP YOUR BRAIN- AROUND THE BLOCKCHAIN?”
& “THEY CAN MAKE IT RAIN ON THE BLOCKCHAIN!”

HE SAID “THE DOLLARS BEEN IN DECLINE FOR SUCH A LONG TIME
SOME WOULD SAY ‘IT’S BY DESIGN!’ OR ‘IT’S AN INTERNATIONAL CRIME!’”
I SAID “I GUESS WE’LL FIND OUT IN TIME”

THEN HE SAID “THE ONLY THING FEDERAL ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS THE WAY THEY SPELL IT IN THE NAME. IT’S LIKE A BIG SHELL GAME- THAT’S LEFT ITSELF RIPE FOR CHANGE”

“HAVE YOU WRAPPED YOUR BRAIN AROUND THE BLOCKCHAIN?”
“THEY GONNA MAKE IT RAIN ON THE BLOCKCHAIN!”
