Track Name: Shaking Loose
SHAKING LOOSE

IF I COULD MAKE IT DOWN TO MEMPHIS
I’D BUY ME A SHOTGUN SHACK BY THE RIVER
JUST MUDDY ROADS AND RICKETY FENCES
NO UPPITY PEOPLE ACTING PRETENTIOUS

I FEEL MY HEART GETTING COLDER
I FEEL MY SPIRIT GROWING OLDER
GOT TO SHAKE THESE WORRIES
FROM MY SHOULDERS
I’M SHAKING LOOSE

THESE THREE LITTLE ROOMS ARE SUFFICATING
I FEEL LIKE I’M TEARING AT THE SEAMS
I KNOW THAT THIS BLACKTOP
LEADS TO SOMEWHERE
TONIGHT IT’S THE HIGHWAY AND THE HIGH BEAMS

I COULD RUN AWAY TO NEW ORLEANS
SING THE BLUES DOWN ON BOURBON STREET
PEOPLE THROW THEIR SPARE CHANGE AT MY FEET
AND I’LL BE SHAKING LOOSE
MAYBE I COULD MAKE ENOUGH TO EAT
EVEN LIVE A LIFE OF LUXURY
LORD GIVE ME JUST ENOUGH TO SET ME FREE
I’LL BE SHAKING LOOSE

Track Name: What Does Love Want?
WHAT DOES LOVE WANT?

STANDING ALONE ON THIS CROWDED STREET
SEEMS THERE’S SOMEONE OUT THERE
FOR EVERYONE BUT ME
I ONCE HAD A GIRL WHO MADE ME FEEL WHOLE
I GAVE HER MY HEART BUT SHE TOOK MY SOUL

WHAT DOES LOVE WANT FROM ME?
WHAT DOES LOVE WANT FROME ME?
WHY DOES SHE HATE ME?
WHY DOES SHE ALWAYS TRY TO BREAK ME?
WHAT DOES LOVE WANT?
TELL ME, WHAT DOES LOVE WANT?
WHAT DOES LOVE WANT FROM ME?

SHE USED SING TO ME AS WE LAY IN BED
AND THERE IN THE DARKNESS
I LOVE YOU SHE SAID
IF SHE COULD DECEIVE ME SO EASILY
TELL ME IS THERE ANYBODY THAT I CAN BELIEVE?

WHAT DOES LOVE WANT FROM ME?
WHAT DOES LOVE WANT FROME ME?
WHY DOES SHE HATE ME?
WHY DOES SHE ALWAYS TRY TO BREAK ME?
WHAT DOES LOVE WANT?
TELL ME, WHAT DOES LOVE WANT?
WHAT DOES LOVE WANT FROM ME?

HEARTACHE (DOESN’T HAVE A CLOSING TIME)

BARTENDER, WON’T YOU POUR ANOTHER ROUND?
I GOT 27 REASONS FOR SITTING HERE THIS EVENING
AND DON’T YOU KNOW THEY ALL REVOLVE AROUND
THAT SAME OLD STORY
LOST LOVE AND GLORY
AND GOLDEN HAIR, THE DARKEST EYES
FOR A SUMMER SHE WAS MINE

I WISH THE BARS WERE ALWAYS OPEN
FOR HEARTS THAT ARE BROKEN
‘CAUSE HEARTACHE DOESN’T HAVE A CLOSING TIME

THERE’S NOWHERE TO GO AT 4 AM
‘CEPT CRAZY AS HELL OR SOME CHEAP HOTEL
CAN’T SPEND ANOTHER NIGHT IN OUR OLD BED
NO SENSE IN SLEEPING
‘CAUSE I’LL JUST START DREAMING
OF GOLDEN HAIR, THE DARKEST EYES
I’M STILL HER’S BUT SHE’S NOT MINE

I NEED TO BE WITH THOSE THREE FRIENDS OF MINE
TEQUILA, SALT & LIME

I WISH THE BARS WERE ALWAYS OPEN
FOR HEARTS THAT ARE BROKEN
‘CAUSE HEARTACHE DOESN’T HAVE A CLOSING TIME

Track Name: Hello Montgomery
HELLO MONTGOMERY

SOUTH OF BIRMINGHAM YOU GO
JUST THREE HOURS FROM THE COAST
OLD TRAIN STATION
TAKES YOU BACK IN TIME
PEOPLE MARCHING IN THE STREET
RESTLESS GHOSTS THAT NEVER SLEEP
ONCE IT’S IN YOUR BLOOD
WON’T LET YOU GO

IT’S A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN
SEEN IT’S SHARE OF HELL
THERE ARE ANGELS, DEMONS
HEAR THAT DEXTER AVENUE CHURCH BELL
I COULDN’T WAIT TO LEAVE YOU
NOW I’M COMING HOME
TO THOSE SHADY BOULEVARDS
THAT WILL ALWAYS HAUNT ME
HELLO MONTGOMERY

YOU HEAR THAT LONESOME WHIP-POOR-WILL
HANK’S STILL RESTING ON THAT HILL
SPEND SOME TIME UP THERE WITH HIM ALONE
THERE WERE THOSE WHO KNEW YOU FIRST
NATIVE HANDS WORKED YOUR RED EARTH
AND THEY LOVED YOU JUST AS MUCH AS I DO

WITH THAT ALABAMA RIVER
RIGHT THERE BEFORE ME
HELLO MONTGOMERY

Track Name: Free
FREE

I’M A SINNER AND I’M A SAINT
I’M NOT PERFECT IN EVERY WAY
BUT SOMEDAYS, SOMEHOW
I ALMOST GET IT RIGHT

AND I’VE BEEN DOWN THROUGH HELL & BACK
ALMOST FALLEN THROUGH THE CRACKS
BUT I KEPT ON SWINGING
AND NEVER LOST THE FIGHT

NOW I’M FREE AS THE WEST COAST SUN
FREE AS HORSES ON THE RUN
FREE AS A WILD RAGING FIRE
FREE AS NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE
FREE AS MEMPHIS BLUE SUEDE SHOES
FREE AS RUNNING DOWN A RED DIRT ROAD
I’M SET FREE, I’M SET FREE

NOW THERE’S ONE THING I KNOW FOR SURE
THOSE DOGS WILL BE SCRATCHING
AGAIN AT MY DOOR
BUT I AIN’T FLINCHING
MY HEART’S ON THE TRIGGER THIS TIME

I’M LETTING GO OF THAT BALL & CHAIN
I FINALLY GOT OFF THAT MIDNIGHT TRAIN
NOW MY LIFE’S NO LONGER SOME CHEAP RHYME

Track Name: Crying Out Loud
CRYING OUT LOUD

I TRIED TO BE DISCRETE
BUT YOU KNOW EYES
AREN’T INSTRUMENTS OF CHOICE
WHEN YOU’VE GOT SECRETS THERE TO KEEP

IT’S FUNNY HOW TEARS FALL
WHEN IT’S ONLY SALT & WATER AFTER ALL
ONLY SALT & WATER
AND THAT’S ALL

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
CRYING ALL NIGHT
CRYING IN MY DREAMS
JUST CAN’T GET IT RIGHT
FOR ALL THE LOVE
THAT’S ALL AROUND
FOR ALL THE LOVE
THAT SOMEHOW CAN’T BE FOUND
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD

THE BEST OF FRIENDS
I WAS THE LOYAL ALLY
BY YOUR SIDE
WHEN YOUR LOVE BOAT MISSED THE TIDE

IT’S FUNNY HOW LOVE FALLS
WHEN IT’S ONLY TEARS & HEARTACHE AFTER ALL
ONLY TEARS & HEARTACHE
AND THAT’S ALL

RAINBOWS ARE JUST WATER DROPLETS
SUSPENDED THERE TO SEE
JUST SO MUCH PHYSICS & ILLUSION
BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU & ME?

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
CRYING ALL NIGHT
CRYING IN MY DREAMS
JUST CAN’T GET IT RIGHT
FOR ALL THE LOVE
THAT’S ALL AROUND
FOR ALL THE LOVE
THAT SOMEHOW CAN’T BE FOUND
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD

Track Name: The Past
THE PAST

WELL EVERYBODY’S GOT ONE
THEY CARRY IT ALL THE TIME
WE MIGHT TRY TO LAY IT DOWN
BUT IT’S WITH US ALL OUR LIVES
A CONSTANT COMPANION
THAT WE LIVE AND LEARN FROM
SOMETIMES IT’S HEAVY AS
THE BARREL OF A LOADED GUN
IT CAN BE HELL
BUT WE ALL HAVE

A PAST
THAT WE JUST CAN’T OUTRUN
THE PAST
IT’S FOREVER AS THE SUN
AND EVEN THOUGH IT’S GONE TODAY
IT’S HERE TO (‘TIL THE) LAST

SOMETIMES IT’S A BATTLEFIELD
WHERE THE WAR IS FOUGHT INSIDE
WHERE THE GHOSTS OF YESTERDAY
ARE (VERY MUCH) ALL STILL ALIVE
BUT YOU KNOW GHOSTS CAN’T KILL YOU
THEY’RE THERE TO SHAKE YOUR BED
AND IF YOU LET THEM
YOU’LL BE MESSING UP YOUR HEAD
BY YOURSELF
CAUSE WE ALL HAVE

THEY SAY THE FUTURE IS WRITTEN IN THE STARS
BUT THE HARD TERRAIN OF YESTERDAY
MAKES US WHO WE ARE

Track Name: Take Back The Night
TAKE BACK THE NIGHT

WHEN EVERYTHING TURNS TO GREY
AND YOU CAN’T SEE THE HORIZON
AND THERE’S NOTHING BUT BIG TRAILER TRUCKS
OUT ON THE HIGHWAY
YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU’RE GOIN’
OH, BOY, YOU’RE JUST DRIVIN’
“I’D RATHER BE HOLDIN’ HER, LORD,”
ARE THE WORDS THAT YOU PRAY

TAKE BACK THE NIGHT
PULL DOWN THE STARS
FOLD UP YOUR TENT
REEL IN YOUR HEART
JUST KEEP DRIVIN’ WEST
WHERE THE BUFFALO ROAM
DRAG THE SUNSET
ALL THE WAY HOME

GOT A LOT OF BIG NEON LIGHTS
GOIN’ BY IN THE WINDOW
JESUS SAVES ON THE SIGN
BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD
ONE MORE BOTTLE OF JACK
AND YOU’LL LOSE OKLAHOMA
COUPLE MORE MILES ON THIS TRACK
AND YOU’LL LOSE YOUR SOUL

TAKE BACK THE NIGHT
PULL DOWN THE STARS
FOLD UP YOUR TENT
REEL IN YOUR HEART
JUST KEEP DRIVIN’ WEST
WHERE THE BUFFALO ROAM
DRAG THE SUNSET
ALL THE WAY HOME
