Track Name: Miles
MILES

Time to hit the road again
My Mrs. waitin’ for me
Love the state of Michigan
But you’re not my sweet lady

100 miles away from Milwaukee
I can’t wait to kiss my girl
If I go again, I will miss you
And the strange things that you say

Goodbye old Chicago
Drivin’ north on 94
Les Paul playin’ Caravan
Gotta love the man from the ‘Sha

80 miles away from Milwaukee
I can’t wait to kiss my girl
If I go again, I will miss you
And the strange things that you say

Just passed Great America
Rollercoaster blues
Drivin’ past the state line;
“Wisconsin Welcomes You!”

50 miles away from Milwaukee
I can’t wait to kiss my girl
If I go again, I will miss you
And the strange things that say

Zero miles away from Milwaukee
And my key won’t fit the door
Now I have to go, I will miss you
And the strange things that you say
Track Name: Post
POST

Why did you go,
do something like that?
You’re wrong and you’re right
With ink and with dust

I look to the post–
When will it arrive today?
I look to the post
I look to the post

Ink in your writing
Runs like your fears
Moment by moment you run
Words and some meanings
The black runs with the years
Turn and face me as someone

I pray for your hand
Your eye and your grace
Watch as you go
The steps that you take

I look to the post–
When will it arrive today?
I look to the post
I look to the post

Ink in your writing
Runs like your fears
Moment by moment you run
Words and some meanings
The black runs with the years
Turn and face me as someone

I’m a laughin’ man
I’m a laughin’ man, oh whoa,
I’m a laughin’ man
I’m a laughin’ man
Track Name: Suitcase
SUITCASE

Gotta pack my bags
Gonna get out on the water
In the sun in the air
And the waves in my ears
My life all folded;
Stashed away all proper
In my suitcase tweed and satin torn and stained

Your weathered buckle, gotta bustle
Your weathered buckle, gotta bustle

You feel like home in my hands
I’m a travelin’ man
I’m a travelin’ man
You feel like home in my hands
I’m a travelin’ man
I’m a travelin’ man

My Tattered Friend,
I love you like a brother
With your scuffs and your scrapes
And your faded brown veneer
You’ve been with me to
Paradise and Hades
Who knows what we’ll discover on our way?

Your weathered buckle, gotta bustle
Your weathered buckle, gotta bustle

You feel like home in my hands
I’m a travelin’ man
I’m a travelin’ man
You feel like home in my hands
I’m a travelin’ man
I’m a travelin’ man

Where I go, you are always there with me
Every town, every city that I see
Where I go, you are always there with me
Every town, every city that I see

Your weathered buckle, gotta bustle
Your weathered buckle, gotta bustle

You feel like home in my hands
I’m a travelin’ man
I’m a travelin’ man
You feel like home in my hands
I’m a travelin’ man
I’m a travelin’ man
Track Name: Maeby
MAEBY

I’ve been watchin’ you for so long
Everythin’ you do seems a little wrong
Makin’ eyes with the boy from the corner store
Gettin’ rides from the boy next door

Hey Maeby,
What you tryin’ to say?
You’re leadin’ him on again

Waitin’ at the bus stop all alone
Hopin’ for a fast car to come along
Gettin’ all that attention your favorite way
Leave ‘em in the dust for another day

Hey Maeby,
What’chu you tryin’ to say?
You’re leadin’ him on again

Oh, you should’a been home a long time ago
And you never call on the phone
Oh, I leave the light on for you, Girl
So you don’t fall comin’ home

Hey Maeby,
What’chu you tryin’ to say?
You’re leadin’ him on again
Track Name: Water
WATER

In the mornin’, when they wake up
They see the past between them in their eyes
As they listen to the outside
They hear the things that make them want to run and hide

Wastin’ all that water on him,
Wastin’ all that water on him

At the window, starin’ silent,
He sees the movies playin’ in her mind
Dusty reruns, warn and tattered
Images she never left behind

Wastin’ all that water on him,
Wastin’ all that water on him

He asks, “Why are you broken?,
How come these tears keep on fallen’?”

“I can only see through blurry tears
All these years I’ve cried
But I don’t know why I’m…
Wastin’ all this water on him
Wastin’ all this water on him”

Tonight you weep in sorrow,
But the sun will rise tomorrow

Wastin’ all that water on him
Wastin’ all that water on him
Track Name: Remember
REMEMBER

Is this a dream?
Where am I?
Is this what it seems?
I wipe my eyes

I can’t escape
I cannot wake–
From this dream
Yet I’m not asleep

Don’t go, My Love
Remember me

Cuz I can’t go
Cuz I can’t go
Cuz I can’t go
With you

Are you close by?
I hope you’re warm
Do you miss me–
Away from home?

Come home some day
In angel’s hands–
I wish you could
In angel’s hands

Don’t go, My Love
Remember me

Cuz I can’t go
Cuz I can’t go
Cuz I can’t go
With you

I won’t forget you
Remember me?
I won’t forget you
Remember me?
Track Name: Australia
AUSTRALIA

I’ve been waitin’ for this moment to come around
Its been too long since I last stood upon the ground
With my eyes closed, I can breathe in your country air
That has graced me and my grandfather’s crimson hair

Been a long, long winter
Ready for the sunshine
Can’t wait to see my brothers
Play with my kin
I’ll lay on your beaches
I’ll drive down your highways
I’ll dive in your oceans
I’ll gaze at your skies

I can hear you in the trees and the roarin’ waves
Every season, in the birds and the treasured rains
I can taste you in the cane fields and in the vines
Its been too long, I’ve been distant for too much time

Been a long, long winter
Ready for the sunshine
Can’t wait to see my brothers
And play with my kin
I’ll lay on your beaches
I’ll drive down your highways
I’ll dive in your oceans
I’ll gaze at your skies

Clouds go away, sun warm the day
I wanna ride with the roof down, Baby
Clouds go away, sun warm the day
I wanna ride with the roof down, Baby

Australia, you’re still my home
You’re like no other
Australia, you’re still my home
You’re like no other
Australia, you’re still my home
You’re like no other

Clouds go away, sun warm the day
I wanna ride with the roof down, Baby
Clouds go away, sun warm the day
I wanna ride with the roof down, Baby
Track Name: House
HOUSE

When I was a boy left alone
And I heard the thing I did
What could it be–
What made the noise?
I don’t know, but I am scared
I check the hall, no one there
I look left and I look right
All the doors are open wide,
“Must be a draft”
I run and close them, every door

I pull the covers over head
Reach for my cowboy gun
Somethings here in the house
Something and not someone

As I lay there in my bed
I hear a groaning and a creak
Wide awake, I am struck still
Footsteps moving, feel a chill
I tiptoe across the room,
“What would Mario do?”
Shaking, I look down the hall
(No one there)
All the doors are open wide!
Shadows on the other side

I pull the covers over head
Reach for my cowboy gun
Nothings here in the house
Nothings here in the house

Petrified, I hear a creak
I slowly look out from the sheets
My bedroom door is opening
The shadow standing there and then…

I pull the covers over head
Reach for my cowboy gun
Somethings here in the house
Something and not someone
Track Name: Aftershave
AFTERSHAVE

I remember then
Watchin’ as we knelt down
The boards on the floor had come undone
We lifted with such wonder then
To see what was below

A box and a rag
And some old aftershave

We were all thinkin’
With our eyes wide
The possibility of treasure here
We reached inside and grabbed the loot
Our prize was to behold

A box and a rag
And some old aftershave

“Oh Brother! What have we here?”
“Oh Brother! What have we found?”
Something from long ago
And some stale aftershave

We wiped it clean–
To see a sailing ship
We argued who would get to look in first
Dad said, “Boys, what have you in your hands?”
We answered there and then,

“A box and a rag
And some old aftershave”

“Oh Brother! What have we here?”
“Oh Brother! What have we found?”
Something from long ago
And some stale aftershave

“Well Jimminy,
Let’s see what we’ve got here…”
He opened up the box and we looked in
A blade engraved with Norman Lee
Our treasure now was found

A box and a rag
And some old aftershave

“Oh Brother! What have we here?”
“Oh Brother! What have we found?”
Something from long ago
And some stale aftershave
Track Name: Caroline
CAROLINE

As the crowd moved
It made a small place
That’s when I saw her
Standing there

Caroline

Plaid tarten skirt
Navy blue sweater
Pink scarf she made
With uneven ends

Caroline

She was my little angel
Always my little angel
Caroline

Long blonde, blonde hair
She tied into braids
While lookin’ around
Over her shoulder

Caroline

That was the night
We first bumped heads
Laughed and we asked,
“What is your name?”

Caroline

You are my little angel
Always my little angel
Caroline
