Whenever I'm around you, babe You're all that I can see You got a way about you and it's got a hold on me Yeah, you keep on the sunny side Never in the dark And when I need a little light you become the spark CHORUS You're the only one and I want you to know it Lovin' like that's all I wanna make Now everything is coming up roses Ain't got even one complaint I can't even believe you're real 'Cause baby you're givin' me a sweetheart deal Every time I call you, babe You have me at hello And when you're 'round I want you to stay Never want you to go Now honey, you can do no wrong It seems absurd When I put Otis Redding on You're singin' every word CHORUS SOLO CHORUS Baby you're givin' me a sweetheart deal Baby you're givin' me a sweetheart deal
2.
What is gone is really here to stay Like ol' Paul singin’ “Yesterday” So to you I tip my hat and say “How do you do? “ You're as sweet as a lemonade I'm your song on the hit parade It's your own pocket serenade How do you do How do you do SLIDE GUITAR We will see, that what makes a man Are the letters written in his hand And he'll carve in a grain of sand “How do you do?” BRIDGE So dot your I's and cross your T's Lend your little ears to my pleas We can pass the time with "As Time Goes By" Yeah SOLO How do you do How do you do How do you do
3.
Just Say Go 03:01
We were born on a restless road Heated by the midday sun You lay beside me and the tale was told Guessing fate's card hand and won CHORUS Just say go Never wanna take it slow Put the pedal to the floor Just say go Tell me and I'll make it so I'll give you everything and more, yeah Just beyond the horizon line There's a promise and a prize And as we near them, they get further but we find We had already arrived CHORUS Baby, here we are At the start of something good And if getting there was easy Then everybody would And the challenge here before us, Let's take it where it goes Hollywood and Vine to Carolina Or make up our own roads, yeah
4.
Strange Maps 03:57
Another turn of the wheel It's hard to know where they've led You just follow the lines When can't see what's up ahead And you wanna keep rollin' Make good time in the rain Or do you just pay the toll and Move to the exit lane CHORUS On a road of your own choosing Miss a sign and go too far With those strange maps you're using You don't know how close you are Trying to get there faster Through the tar and the heat Everything in a blur Where the road and the rubber meet Go all-in when placing a bet On the odds of beating the wind When a heart is racing To get where it's never been CHORUS Measured miles and hours Without a moment to spare What is it that shows how to know When you're getting there     CHORUS On a road of your own choosing Miss a sign and go too far Will those strange maps you're using Take you among the stars? Getting there can be confusing Miss a sign and go too far With those strange maps you're using You don't know how close you are

The papers on the wall Say get up when you have to or not at all She trades all her time awaiting Places to go and people to know her keeps her composure firm as a soldier Any way to hide Revealing at all those feelings inside She went home and cried And I know she did Now and then she writes A fiction so real that it comes alive Torn up pages, bound, awaiting Places to go and people who know her Lovers who hold her Firm as a soldier The far end of a sigh Will greet her at home at the end of the night She went home and cried And I know she did SOLO BRIDGE One thing she doesn't know One thing she doesn't know is what she'll have to learn One day she'll have it all One day she'll have it all Any way to hide Revealing at all those feelings inside She went home and cried And I know she did And I know she did

My girl has the world on a string She says life is good and life is sweet She’s sees the brighter side of things I'm so glad she's not at all like me She sees every cloud's silver lining Maybe I could learn a thing or three In her heart of gold the sun is always shining She even see's the brighter side of me SOLO She sees every cloud's silver lining She can see what no one else can see My girl has the world on a string She can see the good in everything She even see's the brighter side in me
7.
Sleeping Sun 02:10
Shine on me tonight, Sleeping sun, and send me your light All night Alright, yeah And love me Though you're not in sight, Sleeping sun, I know you're in flight This night Tonight, somewhere So find me Peek above The distant ground And follow me around SOLO Shine on me tonight, Sleeping sun, and send me your light All night Alright, yeah And love me Sleeping Sun Sleeping Sun
8.
Mumbo Johnny 01:28
Mumbo Johnny Sugar, rye and lead Mumbo Johnny Sugar, rye and lead Yesterday's ricochet Comes around again
9.
I'll make a note that you are leaving I'll make a note that you arrived Honey you have got me feeling Like I'm falling to the earth And I'll be lucky to survive CHORUS Don't put yourself out too far (Ooooo) Don't put yourself out too far or maybe Flicker, flash and burn Take a lesson from a shooting star You tell yourself a million fables You got a head full of ideas Say you want love but your unable If you're crying through the laughter And you're laughing through the tears CHORUS SOLO CHORUS
10.
Somewhere there's something Oooo wah ooo
