Track Name: Peace, Love and Horses
Right there in that summer dress, wild flowers in her hair/ She can go anywhere on that palomino mare/ She’s got Rocky Mountain ivory that she wears around her neck/ And the Grateful Dead play a song in her head

(Chorus)
Somewhere between cowboy and hippie/ She’s all about peace, love, horses, and me

She could end a war with just a smile/ She can drive a tractor bailin' hay for miles and miles/ She says innocence grows from right out of the ground/ She believes in heaven, and what goes around comes around

(Chorus)
Somewhere between cowboy and hippie/ She’s all about peace, love, horses, and me

(Bridge)
She remembers Chris LeDoux and that song that he sang/ About two books with different covers, but the pages are the same

As certain as a river in the spring/ You seal a deal with a hand shake, that's her philosophy/ She can rope and ride and she likes hangin' out with me/ She believes that love is the one thing that can change anything

(Chorus)
And she loves me and that's the part that gets me/ She's all about peace, love, horses, and me
Track Name: Addicted
My teachers tried to warn me, stay away from that powerful stuff/ My dad said son if you get started you won't ever be able to stop/ Look at me now I'm doing fine and I'm happy to admit/ I don't believe that hype you know I got a good life, but they say I'm addicted

(Chorus)
Addicted to drivin' down the road ridin' bronc’s and havin' fun/ Addicted, well I'm really not, I could quit it any time I want/ Even if I was hooked on rodeo, at least I’m not addicted to liquor or drugs/ Well I could blow all my money and break all my bones, but I would never hurt anyone

I've always been the kind to be in control, I tell you that in my defense/ 'Cause the kind of bronc’s I've been drawin’ lately's got me questioning my common sense/ Addiction’s a form of weakness, I know that to be true/ You're gonna pay for a habit, I pray I don't have it just between me and you

(Chorus)
Addicted to drivin' down the road ridin' bronc’s and havin' fun/ Addicted, well I'm really not, I could quit any time I want/ Even if I was hooked on rodeo, at least I'm not addicted to liquor or drugs/ It’s broken bones and bruises and self-induced abuses that'll never hurt anyone

(Bridge)
I’ve been thinkin' of slowin' down to spend some more time at home/ I bought my girl a diamond ring so she don’t have to be alone

I ran into Eb Richie the other day, I asked him if he gets the itch/ I said it's twenty years since you been on a bull I guess you finally got it licked/ Then his eyes went wild and he started to shake, he said it hits him every spring/ I said thanks Eb you're not helping me any, now I gotta hock a diamond ring

(Chorus)
Addicted to drivin’ down the road ridin' bronc’s and having fun/ Addicted, well I really thought that I could quit it anytime I want/ Now I’m sittin' here jones'n for a rodeo, might as well be liquor or drugs/ Well I could blow all my money and break all my bones and I would never get enough

Well I blew all my money and that ain’t funny 'cause I just can't give it up
Track Name: Just One Of The Guys
She pulls up in that old pick-up/ In her dusty cowgirl boots and her faded Wrangler Jeans/ She’s just some cowgirl you’ve hung out with since she was seventeen/ Now she's thirty-three

She don't seem like the kind to ever settle down/ She's just ridin' on a natural mountain high/ When she gets bucked off she'll get up and shake it off/ She’s just one of the guys

(Chorus)
She can rope and ride with all of us/ She’s cold as ice if you lose her trust/ Well it’s no disguise don’t believe those eyes/ There’s no such thing as a girl who’s just one of the guys

If you find a girl like that don't ever let her go/ Friend, take my advice and don't ask me how I know/ She's the perfect summer sunset if she ever lets it show/ Trust me, I know

(Chorus)
She can rope and ride with all of us/ She’s cold as ice if you lose her trust/ Well it’s no disguise don’t believe those eyes/ There’s no such thing as a girl who’s just one of the guys

(Bridge)
Yeah, she's pretty tough, don’t' get me wrong/ But every woman's heart is beautiful song/ And there ain’t no shame in treating her that way

(Chorus)
She can rope and ride with all of us/ She’s cold as ice if you lose her trust/ Well it’s no disguise don’t believe those eyes/ There’s no such thing as a girl who’s just one of the guys

She pulls up in that ol’ pick up
Track Name: Honky Tonk Halos
You’ve been livin’ on white lines and asphault/ Time and strangers keep passin’ you by/ Don’t you know that there’s a place you can go to?/ Heaven’s just beneath the Wyoming sky/ And there’s

(Chorus)
Honky tonk halos hanging on cowgirl angels/ Storm clouds dancin’ on the open sky/ Dusty roads that lead you down to blue water/ It just might change that broke down look in your eye

You’ve been beat down, busted and broken/ You’ve fallen on some real hard days/ If you listen to the words I have spoken/ You won’t even have to pass away/ There’s

(Chorus)
Honky tonk halos hanging on cowgirl angels/ Storm clouds dancin’ on the open sky/ Dusty roads that lead you down to blue water/ It just might change that broke down look in your eye

(Bridge)
It’s been a while since you’ve been in the saddle/ I know that you feel all alone/ We’ve all been down the road you have traveled/ Maybe it’s time that you came on home/ To

Honky tonk halos hanging on cowgirl angels/ Storm clouds dancin’ on the open sky/ Dusty roads that lead you down to blue water/ It just might change that broke down look in your eye

(Chorus)
Honky tonk halos hanging on cowgirl angels/ Storm clouds dancin’ on the open sky/ Dusty roads that lead you down to blue water/ It just might change that broke down look in your eye
Track Name: Winter Baja Sun
The hay is stacked and the woods been split/ The shoes are pulled and the steers been shipped/ It's a good routine going on seven years/ It's the reason he's alive, summer workin' at the O Bar Y/ But he can't wait 'till the blue birds migrate/ Because

(Chorus)
Richard takes the right fork road down south as far as it goes/ Down where they call him Ricardo/ He hung a buffalo in his bungalow/ To remind himself where to go/ When he's done soakin' up that winter Baja sun

Ridin' the ocean like cowboys do/ In Bermuda shorts and his cowboy boots/ Like the autumn leaves, the colors shine down inside the sea/ Big corrals full of coral, there ain’t no need to quarrel/ He sleeps away the hot part of the day/ Because

(Chorus)
Richard takes the right fork road down south as far as it goes/ Down where they call him Ricardo/ He hung a buffalo in his bungalow/ To remind himself where to go/ When he's done soakin' up that winter Baja sun

(Bridge)
Sunny beaches, señoritas, big fiestas and margaritas/ He knows Jimmy Buffet would be so proud

(Chorus)
Richard takes the right fork road down south as far as it goes/ That's where they call him Ricardo/ With sand between his toes, pocket full of pesos/ Canteen full of Quervo Gold/ He'll be soakin' up that winter Baja, winter Baja, that winter Baja sun
Track Name: Have a Good Life
I swear I wasn't looking/ I just turned around and you were there/ We spent all night talkin' 'bout the things that make us shine/ And how we never wanted it like this

You're and angel, no doubt about it/ You can see right through my disguise/ And the way that you’re flying’s got me mesmerized/ I know you’re something I could never forget/ So

(Chorus)
Have a good life, I hardly know you at all/ I may never see you again, but what a weekend/ I'll miss you so much, I hope you remember my name/ You could've been my best friend, but 'till our trails meet again/ Have a good life

I'm like that pack of cigarettes/ I’ve got nothin' you need/ So go on livin' your dreams and I'll keep chasin' mine/ Let's don't pretend that I don't have regrets

(Chorus)
Have a good life, I hardly know you at all/ I may never see you again, but what a weekend/ I'll miss you so much, I hope you remember my name/ You could've been my best friend, but 'till our trails meet again/ Have a good life

(Bridge)
Call it bad timing, chalk it up to circumstance/ It's over our heads and out of our hands/ So

(Chorus)
Have a good life, I hardly know you at all/ I may never see you again, but what a weekend/ I'll miss you so much, I hope you remember my name/ You could've been my best friend, but 'till our trails meet again/ Have a good life
Track Name: The Same Dark Trail
Deep in the darkest canyon with ghosts at every turn/ I’d crossed a thousand raging rivers and swore I’d never learn/ The answer to a question I didn’t even know

Down the same dark trail you were traveling alone/ Two thousand miles away from home/ Into the western sunset you did roam/ A hard way to go

(Chorus)
Down the same dark trail we were lost and found each other/ And not many other lovers could endure the kinds of things that we’ve survived/ Sometimes we ride down the same dark trail

Looking for the sunrise, we can see the light/ Holding to each other, the feeling is so right/ But the lightning and the thunder as they are/ Confusion clouds the vision of our hearts/ We fall apart

(Chorus)
Down the same dark trail we were lost and found each other/ And our sisters and our brothers don’t know the pain that we try to hide/ so we just ride for our lives down the same dark trail

(Bridge)
But even on the darkest night you can still do something right/ Even in the fiery midst of hell, you don’t have to fail/ On the same dark trail

(Chorus)
Down the same dark trail we found God and saved each other/ And our children will discover the answers to the questions that they don’t know/ We have to let ‘em go down the same dark trail

Down the same dark trail
Track Name: Steppin' Down
It's been too long since I rode a bull/ I hung it up when I went to school/ Now I got this job, I wear this frown/ So tonight I’m stepping down

Listen up boys, try to understand/ I'll draw you a picture to make it make sense/ There's the dirt, here's the clown/ Tonight I’m stepping down

(Chorus)
I’m stepping down to ride a bull tonight at the rodeo/ And I'll slide down on his back and away we go/ Spinning round and round we'll be the highlight of the show/ Before I go, I want you to know tonight I'm stepping down

Me and my girlfriend, we had a fight/ There was this other guy, guess I was right/ Been there before, I see the door/ Tonight I'm stepping down

(Chorus)
I’m stepping down to ride a bull tonight at the rodeo/ And I'll slide down on his back and away we go/ Spinning round and round we'll be the highlight of the show/ Before I go, I want you to know tonight I'm stepping down

(Bridge)
Promises and promotions, we all have our share/ But sometimes this ol' life seems more than we can bear/ And the best way to the top could be spinnin’ round and round/ And sometimes to move up, you gotta step back down

About four seconds, a score of zero/ Out of a job, but I'm a hero/ I’ve got my pride and a new girlfriend/ So tonight I’m stepping down

(Chorus)
I’m stepping down to ride a bull tonight at the rodeo/ And I'll slide down on his back and away we go/ Spinning round and round we'll be the highlight of the show/ I gotta go ride another bull, tonight I'm stepping down
Track Name: End of Days
The ground is shaking, the ice is breakin', the water's rising/ It's getting kind a hot down here/ And there's a big change on the horizon/ Girl, have no fear/ I know we just met, but we don't have much time/ Let's get out a here, put your hand in mine

(Chorus)
It's the end of days, let's saddle up and ride/ Just you and me underneath that red moonlight/ Up so high, we can watch it all go by/ Put your arms around me better hold on tight/ We may never get this chance again/ This could be the end of days

You've been to church, and so have I, and we realize/ This stories been foretold/ We recognize signs of the times/ So let's sit back and watch it unfold/ I know we just met, but we don't have much time/ Move on over here, press your lips to mine

(Chorus)
It's the end of days, let's saddle up and ride/ Just you and me underneath that red moonlight/ Up so high, we can watch it all go by/ And lay around our campfire as the flames get higher/ We may never get this chance again/ This could be the end of days

(Bridge)
If Yellowstone goes, well I won't be surprised/ Girl, I wanna see the fireworks in your eyes

There's hurricanes, and tornadoes, and tsunamis/ Like we've never seen before/ Well I 'm not trying to make you worry/ About wars and rumors of wars/ Like two disappearing glaciers, we may never be here again/ I know what we should do while we still can

(Chorus)
It's the end of days, let's saddle up and ride/ I wanna be alone with you when that red moon shines/ Just you and me way back in those trees/ I'm sure can find something to do/ We'll never have a better excuse/ This could be the end of days

This could be the end of days
Track Name: People Forget
In one ear and out the other, sometimes we don't connect the dots/ Somebody's going straight to hell and it ain’t our fault/ Sometimes I whisper to myself, how could you sleep at night? /Anybody with a conscience/ Anybody with a conscience

(Chorus)
People forget is doesn’t take too long/ Why can't you forget about the little things that I've done wrong?/ Yeah, people forget, baby, how 'bout you?/ If you could forgive and even not forget, that would be okay, too

Well anybody will make a mistake, I'll be the first to admit/ If you let go of any recollection then you let it happen over again/ To go free just like they have when any one of us would've been hung/ Isn't anybody watching?/ Isn't anybody watching?

(Chorus)
People forget is doesn’t take too long/ Why can't you forget about the little things that I've done wrong?/ Yeah, people forget, baby, how 'bout you?/ If you could forgive and even not forget, that would be okay, too

(Chorus)
People forget is doesn’t take too long/ Why can't you forget about the little things that I've done wrong?/ Yeah, people forget, baby, how 'bout you?/ If you could forgive and even not forget, that would be okay, too/ If you could forgive and even not forget, I could forgive you, too
Track Name: Sweetwater
Billy knew about it, Nellie knew about it to / So they fired up Billy's beat up truck and left right out of school/ With millions of people out of work wonderin' what to do/ Money doesn’t grow on trees, so they got down on their knees

(Chorus)
In that Sweetwater flowin' down through the rocks/ It's kind a like lookin' for the prize in a Cracker Jack box/ And they'd smoke some pot ‘n pan for gold, at least that's the story that I've been told/ Livin' that California dream in Wyoming

They say it takes money to make a lot of money/ Well Billy and Nellie are livin' on the milk and honey/ Policy is the best prevention, now all they got to pay is attention/ To the little shiny yellow pebbles in the sand

(Chorus)
In that Sweetwater flowin' down through the rocks/ It's kind a like lookin' for the prize in a Cracker Jack box/ And they'd smoke some pot ‘n pan for gold, at least that's the story that I've been told/ Livin' that California dream in Wyoming

Now Nellie's got a Corvette, Billy bought a new pick-up truck/ Some think they robbed a bank, others say they were dealin' drugs/ They didn't go for a higher education, never needed a real vocation/ They don't worry 'bout anything, they still get down on their knees

(Chorus)
In that Sweetwater flowin' down through the rocks/ It’s kind a like lookin' for the prize in a Cracker Jack box/ And they pray to God and pan for gold, now the real story has been told/ Livin' that California dream in Wyoming

Livin' that California dream in Wyoming
Track Name: Ride My Horse More
City smoke in the air, you can see it from anywhere/ There’s a million people driving around going nowhere/ Buildings grew up all around me, but I still got a painted pony/ Gonna give her a job ‘cause she’s fat and bored, I’m gonna ride my horse more

(Chorus)
Well I love to drive my truck, the open road feels pretty good/ But just because you can doesn’t mean that you always should/ And I can hardly breathe, man, this is killing me/ I’m gonna ride my horse more

Mother Nature, she’s been beat up, I’d say she’s been abused/ Now even the ocean is black and blue/ Gasoline just turns to haze and my wallet’s on empty anyways/ Holding the reins is something I can afford, so I’m gonna ride my horse more

(Chorus)
Well I love to drive my truck, the open road feels pretty good/ But just because you can doesn’t mean that you always should/ And I can hardly breathe, man, this is killing me/ I’m gonna ride my horse more

(Bridge)
Every body’s got an answer for the problems of today/ Well you can find your own solution, as for me I’ve found my way

(Chorus)
‘cause I can hardly breathe, man, this is killing me/ I’m gonna ride my horse more

Let’s ride!
