Track Name: Roadside Cross - Acoustic Version
VERSE 1
hey you white cross on the highway
won't you tell me what happened to you?
did you fall asleep at the wheel my friend?
or lost control when your tyre blew?

oh i wish you could tell me your story
i hope old death was kind to you
oh white cross there on the highway
this one goes out to you

VERSE 2
oh white cross there by the road side
i wish i could have warned you
keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel
and saved you from the twisted steel

or did you die by the hands of another
a reckless trucker or a drunken fool
white cross out there by the road side
i wish i could have warned you

CHORUS
Just two lengths of pine, crossed and tied
all covered in white
you have long passed on but your memory lives on
as a warning sign
to all drivers out there tonight
keep your eyes on the road
take it slow
and get home alive, all right.

VERSE 3
well i pull over for the night because i'm tried
i don't wanna end up like you
but then again I ain't got no friend
to make a cross like they did for you

and as the sun sets over my camp fire
you enter my mind once more
yeah you white cross on the highway
all alone on that long dark road

CHORUS
Just two lengths of pine, crossed and tied
all covered in white
you have long passed on but your memory lives on
as a warning sign
to all drivers out there tonight
keep your eyes on the road
take it slow
and get home alive, all right.
Track Name: Cold Blooded Blues - Acoustic Version
oh my baby's gone
laying by the river wide eye'd so still and cold
hmm my baby's dead
shot her cold blooded laying down with another man

now i'm so lonely

tied to a river stone
take her out so far were no one ever goes
deep in the everglades
when the law man comes looking round this is what i'll say

she done ran out on me
i'm so lonely

oh sweet mary jane
pull you to my lips and take you in to ease the pain
i don't regret what i done
but i say a little prayer and hope that we will meet again
cause i'm so lonely
Track Name: Laying In The Sun - Acoustic Version
feel the cool breeze, laying in the sun
baby with me, laying in the sun

laying in the sun

cat fish swimming, laying in the sun
bull frogs singing, laying in the sun

laying in the sun

willows weeping, laying in the sun
dreamin' day dreams, laying in the sun

laying in the sun
Track Name: Heavy Load Away - Acoustic Version
a burden so bad she was bound to break
but don't worry little baby cause I can take
a heavy load away

rest a worried head on the bed that you made
you better bite your tongue 'cause it will hurt to take
this poor heavy load away

wrap it up gently, in rag and tie it in place
we'll lower it down, the old dry well,
where secret's keep safe

and every night it's calling you down
hush little baby, oh don't make a sound

the thunder clouds and rain begin to clear away
don't let it even cross your mind on your wedding day
heavy load away
heavy load away
