Wandering Child
(7:45)

Written By Haynes, Abts
Buzzard Rock Music (BMI), Jake Henry Music (ASCAP)

In a lonely dream a boy goes walking
Drowned in shame, drunken with emotion
He says his world is just an ocean
says his poor heart too many times been broken

The bones in your closet
Once bore the skin of your fathers
Guess that means it's out of your hands
Or you're too tired, too tired to bother

Help me now, save the wandering child

Now that you're broken, who'll clean up this mess
Now that your vision is blinded, I guess
You say "where do I fall, now that my strength is gone
and who do I tell, 'I've done nothing wrong'"

Float upon the river till the water runs still
Dive to the bottom-got to drink from the well
Till I find who I am, till I find out who I am
Now that there's no one to show me

Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child

In a lonely dream a boy keeps walking
Drowned in shame, drunken with emotion
He says his kill-it is his crown
Says his angels are no longer looking down

A horse and a monkey, no kids and no wife
A hell of a way for a hero to spend his life
Time to unearth the worm
Let this bridge fall down and burn

Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child

Stand by to stand by
Ain't no need to worry today
Thorazine shuffle make everything OK
I know how you feel
You say you need your highs and lows
But what if you could take your pain
And just let it go

Step right back and watch me now
I'll show you how it's done
Stay right here with me now
Till the damage is done
And the damage is done

Time drags by
When you're boring
Don't care what you do care what you say
There comes a time
When you got to let the monster inside you
Let him come on out, come on out and play

Step right back and watch me now
I'll show you how it's done
Stay right here with me now
Till the damage is done

Step right back and watch me now
I'll show you how it's done
Stay right here with me now
Till the damage is done
And the damage is done

Stand by to stand by
Ain't no need to worry today
Thorazine shuffle make everything OK

No Need to Suffer
(8:12)

Written By Haynes
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

Woman - suspended in time
Heal yourself - no need to stay blind
Spiral dreams - too much to bear
Spiraling who knows where

Let me take you down
No need to suffer anymore
Wrap yourself in the warmth of my arms
And we'll lie awake till sleep overtakes us
Can't you see
There's no need to suffer anymore

Defenseless, trapped in a cage
Blissfulness devoured by the rage
Fate's been cruel, though the years have been kind
You've go to heal yourself - no need to stay blind

Let me take you down
No need to suffer anymore
Wrap yourself in the warmth of my arms
And we'll laugh out loud while the earth dies screaming

Can't you see
There's no need to suffer anymore

And we'll fly away
And look down at the earth below
Fly away and we'll never look back
No, we'll never look back

Woman suspended in time
Heal yourself - no need to stay blind

War Pigs
(8:24)

Written By Iommi, Osborne, Butler, Ward
Published By Essex Music International(ASCAP)

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh Lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight
They leave their role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their judgment day comes

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where their bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgment God is calling
On their knees, the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh Lord yeah!

Some dirt with poison
Gonna lessen your load

They call me the hunter, that's my name
A pretty woman like you, is my only game
I bought me a love gun, just the other day
And I aim to aim it your way
Ain't no use to hide, ain't no use to run
'Cause I've got you in the sights of my love gun

The first time I saw you, standing on the street
I says to myself, "Woo, ain't she sweet"
I've got my love gun loaded, with hugs and kisses
And when I pull the trigger, there will be no misses
Ain't no need to hide, ain't no use to run
'Cause I've got you in the sights of my love gun

Ain't no use to hide, ain't no use to run
'Cause I've got you in the sights of my love gun

I'm the big bad hunter baby
How can I miss when I've got dead aim

Gambler's Roll
(13:46)

Written By Haynes, Neel
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI), Songs of Universal (BMI), Song Pantry Music Inc (ASCAP)

The dealer sits alone in the dark
A cigarette shines on his very last card
Everything he had - he watched it come and go
On a Gambler's roll

A cold wind blows a young girl's world apart
She bet it all on the jack of hearts
She gained her freedom - but she lost her soul
On a gambler's roll

The Gambler he rides - rides on a fool's train
Trading silver for gold
But his luck will change - time takes it toll
On a gambler's roll

The dealer knows - it's just about his last game
Not even she knows the sorrow and the shame
As the .45 deals a fatal blow
On a gambler's roll

The Gambler he rides - rides on a fool's train
Trading silver for gold
But his luck will change - time takes it toll
On a gambler's roll

Spend my money and you walk the streets at night
Look on yonder wall, hand me down my walkin' cane

And if she gets unruly, thinks she don't wan' do
And if she gets unruly and thinks she don't wan' do
Take my 32-20, now, and cut her half in two

She got a .38 special but I believe it's most too light

If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come

All the doctors in Hot Springs sure can't help her none

I'm gonna shoot my pistol, gonna shoot my gatling gun

You made me love you, now your man have come

Ahoh, baby, where you stayed last night
Ahah, baby, where you stayed last night
You got your hair all tangled and you ain't talking right

Her .38 special, boys, it do very well
Her .38 special, boys, it do very well
I got a 32-20 now, and it's a burning

If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come

All the doctors in Wisconsin sure can't help her none

Hey, hey, baby, where you stayed last night
Hey, hey, baby, where you stayed last night
You didn't come home until the sun was shining bright

Ahoh boy, I just can't take my rest
Ahoh boy, I just can't take my rest
With this 32-20 laying up and down my breast

I Shall Return
(9:36)

Written By Haynes
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

As this wheel goes 'round and I search to find my way
Struggle just to hold on through an ordinary day
I do believe I'm slipping away

But I shall return though I'm losing myself
I shall return
I shall return from the depths of my own hell
I shall return

Fate should not have blinded me
For your beauty steals my eyes
and what good is my wisdom
when there are no words to say
How I feel everyday

But I shall return though I'm losing myself
I shall return
I shall return from the depths of my own hell
I shall return

Daylight finds me sleeping dreaming of my youth
But darkness calls my name out loud
And I answer to the truth

But I shall return though I'm losing myself
I shall return
I shall return from the depths of my own hell
I shall return

Oh, I shall return though I'm losing myself
I shall return
I shall return from the depths of my own hell
I shall return

Soulshine
(9:19)

Written By Haynes
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

When you can't find the light
That got you through the cloudy days,
When the stars ain't shinin' bright,
You feel like you've lost your way,
When those candle lights of home,
Burn so very far away,
Well you got to let your soul shine,
Just like my daddy used to say.

He used to say soul shine,
It's better than sunshine,
It's better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Hey now people don't mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Got to let your soul shine,
Shine 'till the break of day.

I grew up thinkin' that I had it made,
Gonna make it on my own.
Life can take the strongest man,
Make him feel so alone.
Now and then I feel a cold wind,
Blowin' through my achin' bones,
I think back to what my daddy said,
He said "Boy, in the darkness before the dawn:"

Let your soul shine.
It's better than sunshine,
It's better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Yeah now people don't mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Gotta let your soul shine,
Shine 'till the break of day.

Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness,
Like a woman has robbed him of his very soul.
A woman too, God knows, she can feel like this.
And when your little world seems cold,
You got to let your spirit take control.

Let you soul shine,
It's better than sunshine,
It's better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Lord now people don't mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Gotta let your soul shine, Shine till the break of day.

Oh, it's better than sunshine,
It's better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain
Yeah now people don't mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Gotta let your soul shine,
Shine 'till the break of day.

Say you wanna feel special

Spanish Moon

Published By Naked Snake Music (ASCAP)

Well the night that was high, we got into town
Was the night of the rain, that froze on the ground
Down the street I heard such a sorrowful tune
Comin' from the place they call the Spanish Moon

Well I stepped inside, and slipped by the door
While a dark girl sang, and played the guitar
There was hookers, and hustlers, they filled up the room
I heard about this place they call the Spanish Moon

There's whiskey, and bad cocaine
Poison get you just the same
And if that -- that don't -- kill you soon
The women will down at the Spanish Moon

Well I pawned my watch, and sold my ring
Just to hear that girl singing, yeah, yeah
I don't care who, you can wake up ruined
You can lose it all down at the Spanish Moon

There's whiskey, and bad cocaine
Poison get you just the same
And if that - that don't - kill you soon
The women will down at the Spanish Moon

Oh strange beautiful grass of green
with your majestic silken scenes
Your mysterious mountains

So to you I wish to put an end
And you'll never hear surf music again

Cortez The Killer
(14:13)

Written By Young
Published By Silver Fiddle Music (ASCAP)

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
And that palace in the sun.

On the shore lay Montezuma
With his coca leaves and pearls
In his halls he often wandered
With the secrets of the worlds.

And his subjects gathered 'round him
Like the leaves around a tree
In their clothes of many colors
For the angry gods to see.

And the women all were beautiful
And the men stood straight and strong
They offered life in sacrifice
So that others could go on.

Hate was just a legend
And war was never known
The people worked together
And they lifted many stones.

And they carried them to the flatlands
But they died along the way
And they built up with their bare hands
What we still can't do today.

And I know she's living there
And she loves me to this day
I still can't remember when
Or how I lost my way.

He came dancing across the water
Cortez, Cortez
What a killer

Afro Blue

Written By Santamaria
Published By Mongo Music (BMI)

Dream of a land my soul is from
I hear a hand stroke on a drum

Elegant boy
Beautiful girl
Dancing for joy
Elegant whirl
Shades of delight
Cocoa hue
Rich as the night
Afro blue

Two young lovers dance face to face
With undulating grace
They gently sway
Then slip away
To some secluded place
Shades of delight
Cocoa hue
Rich as the night
Afro blue

Whispering trees
Echo their sighs
Passionate pleas
Tender replies

Lovers in flight
Upward they glide
Burst at the height
Slowly subside
Shades of delight
Cocoa hue
Rich as the night
Afro blue

And my slumbering fantasy assumes reality
Until it seems it's not a dream
The two are you and me
Shades of delight
Cocoa hue
Rich as the night
Afro blue

Oh shades of delight
Cocoa hue
Rich as the night
Afro blue
