Track Name: Sweetheart Deal
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
Track Name: How Do You Do
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
Track Name: Just Say Go
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
Track Name: Strange Maps
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
Track Name: And I Know She Did
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
Track Name: The Brighter Side
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
Track Name: Sleeping Sun
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
Track Name: Mumbo Johnny
Mumbo Johnny
Sugar, rye and lead
Mumbo Johnny
Sugar, rye and lead
Yesterday's ricochet
Comes around again
Track Name: Lessons From A Shooting Star
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
Track Name: Somewhere There's Something
Somewhere there's something
Oooo wah ooo
