Quiet Streets

Verse 1

I walk along quiet streets
I once walked with you
I count each cobblestone
There’s nothing else to do

CHORUS

All I really want to do
Is walk again with you
All I really want to do
Is walk again with you        

Verse 2

I amble on aimlessly
To places I saw with you
And recall them fondly
It’s all I have to do

CHORUS

Instrumental

Repeat First Verse

Going Home To Telluride

Verse 1

Been to Paris having fun
Been to London, run, run, run
Was in Brussels for a day
Then to Zurich right away

CHORUS

Going home, Going Home, Going home
To Telluride
Going home, Going Home, Going home
To Telluride

Verse 2

Went to Cancun for a week
Drinking vodka on the beach
Spent some time in Montreal
Off to Frisco in the fall

CHORUS

Been to Naples in the spring
Then to LA for a fling
Off to Vegas for some fun
Then to London, run, run, run

CHORUS

 

 

 

Hard Woman

Verse 1

I’ve heard the wind howl
In the winter time
And the rain fall
As if it fell in rhyme
I’ve heard a lion roar
In the dead of night
And a coyote bay
To cause me fright

CHORUS

But I’ve never, never
Heard you cry
No I’ve never
Heard you cry
But I’ve never, never
Heard you cry
No I’ve never
Heard you cry

Verse 2

I’ve heard sea galls sing
Out on the bay
And the priests pray
Almost night and day
I’ve heard the breeze rush
On a mountain pass
And a cat purr
While on my lap

CHORUS

Instrumental

CHORUS

Verse 3

I’ve heard lost souls cry
From a far off place
And the tide roll in
As I begged for grace
I’ve heard children play
In the summertime
And an angel sing
In ethereal rhyme

CHORUS

 

 

Speed

Verse 1

I know I shouldn’t - I love to drive my car
I know I shouldn’t - I drive it hard and far
I always do it - I want the blinding speed
I’ll never stop- speed is a need

CHORUS

Gliding through the night
At the speed of light
Flying through the night
Everything is right

Verse 2

I know I shouldn’t but I love to get high
I always have - I don’t know why
When I do it - I can touch the sky
When I do it - I sometimes cry

CHORUS

Repeat First Verse

CHORUS

 

 

 

Going South

Verse 1

I’m going south to fade away
I’m going south, Mexico way
I want to feel the sun everyday
And watch the clouds drift away

CHORUS

I’m going south today
I’m going south to stay
I’m going south today
I finally found a way

Verse 2

I can feel it’s time to go
No more cold, no more snow
Sand and sun and sea and air
To live my life without a care

CHORUS

Repeat First Verse

CHORUS

Beauty Queen

Verse 1

She is a beauty queen
Long and lean
With eyes that shine
In the night
Her head is high
When she says goodbye
With eyes that shine
Like the sky

CHORUS

She’s beautiful, it’s easy to see
Why men come under her spell
She’s beautiful, it’s easy to see
She’s a queen, you can tell

Verse 2

When I saw her first
I began to thirst
For the love
She brings in the night
She is a beauty queen
Strong and lean
With eyes that shine
Like the stars

CHORUS

Repeat First Verse

Seasons

Verse 1

I walked with you in summer
I loved you in the fall
We made it through the winter
But spring was best of all

CHORUS

We’ve been through the seasons
Enjoyed a summer’s night
We cozyed up in winter
And saw the morning light

Verse 2

We met in Colorado
Then traveled to the south
We moved to the city
And wondered all about

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL

Verse 3

It’s been many seasons
Since I saw you first
If I were to lose you
It would be a curse

CHORUS

 

 

 

LA

Hey girl, are you going to LA
Hey girl, are you going to LA

I’m leaving tomorrow
At the break of day
I’m leaving tomorrow
Heading out to LA

Hey girl, dreams come true in LA
Hey girl, st*rs are made in LA

Hey girl, it’s all in LA
Hey girl, life’s big in LA

Hey girl, are you going to LA
Hey girl, are you going to LA

Sorry You Couldn’t Stay

Verse 1

As I watch the sunset
On Banderas Bay
I think of you love
Oh so far away

I remember yesterday
Like it was today
I remember you Girl
Sorry you couldn’t stay

As I watch the sunrise
On a mountain top
I hear your voice love
Oh I wish I’d stop

In Chautauqua park
I think of you love
Here in the dark

CHORUS

Optional 4th verse

As I see the world change
Here before my eyes
I think of you love
You should have said goodbye

 

 

 

Times In My Life

Verse 1

There were times in my life
There was nothing but strife
There were times in my life
I wouldn’t think twice

CHORUS

But when you say you’re going away
I just don’t know what to say
But when say there’s just no way
I just don’t know what to say

Verse 2

There were times in my life
Everything was just right
There were times in my life
The future looked bright

CHORUS

Repeat First Verse
