Track Name: Old Charlie Rhodes
Old Charlie Rhodes, Charlie Rhodes
Old Charlie Rhodes, Charlie Rhodes

I came across a man, with a stick shift in his hand
He’s been drivin' all night and day, on this endless seeming highway
I ask him how he’s been, he felt obliged to let me in
He said, Kid, do me a favor, don’t end your life before it begins
You can be what you want to be, don’t make the same mistakes as me
Your life’s more than your occupation, so wont you listen to my narration, and he said

Chorus:
I’ve been out on the road for so long,
The path I’ve taken, never seemed so wrong
When I was young I got trapped in a maze,
And I’ll be paying for it for the rest of my days


So I asked him what he really wanted, from his life
He replied, beautiful children, and a beautiful wife.
But my marriage is in trouble, and my time is runnin' out,
And I’ll never, never ever get off this same old trucker’s route, and he said

Chorus
Track Name: Midnight Sun
San Diego to Chugiak
Miles and miles ain’t lookin back
Highway signs through political lines
Summer nights feel so fine

Travelin through the country
Way up into the north
Sun’s always shinin’ , Train tracks whinin’
Bear round the corner

Blue Skies
Long summer nights
Blue Skies
Long summer nights

Pines passin like the sides of a tunnel
The white mountain at the end
Drive a couple hundred
And do it all over again

River runs around the mountain
Can’t see round the bend
The long summer days and endless ways
never seem to end

Blue Skies
Long summer nights
Blue Skies
Long summer nights

Got miles and miles behind me
Got miles and miles ahead
Just feel the wind a blowin’ babe
Let the sun beat down on your head

Blue Skies
Long summer nights
In the land of the midnight sun
It shines down on everyone
Track Name: No Place
Watch the mist, rollin’ in
Down the valley, and back again
See my thoughts, escape the mind
Certain things will be erased in time

I wanna take you back with me
To the Place I long to be
The hops are greener, The women sweeter
Ain’t a place I’d rather be

Take your time, to catch you breath
Feel the cool earth step after step
Changes come, in every move
Each moment never the same

I wanna take you back with me
To the Place I long to be
The hops are greener, The women sweeter
Ain’t a place I’d rather be

See the clouds, changing shape
Here now, but never the same
Don’t need, to figure out why
We are here and this is our time

I wanna take you back with me
To the Place I long to be
The hops are greener, The women sweeter
Ain’t a place I’d rather be, come and spend your days with me
Track Name: On the Other Side
Verse 1-

When I die, please demand,
they bury me with this guitar in my hand
So I can play sweet music in my sleep
The kind of soothing, my soul can keep

Bury me, then plant a tree
Maybe two, or maybe three
Where one day, I’ll rest beneath a grove
In a basket that them tree roots wove


Chorus -

I know some day, I’ll be movin’ on
Will you remember me when I’m gone?
Far across, the great divide
I’ll be waiting for you on the other side

Verse 2-

When I die, don’t be sad
Gather friends and celebrate like mad
Cause I’ve finally lightened my load
For my journey down that rainbow road

Shed a tear, two at most
No, I don’t want you worrying about my ghost
Rest assured, I’ll rest in peace
Waitin’ for that sweet release


Chorus -

I know some day, I’ll be movin’ on
Will you remember me when I’m gone?
Far across, the great divide
I’ll be waiting for you on the other side

Verse 3-

I’m not scared, no not afraid
For the coming of my dying day
Cause the stars reflect my mind
So I'll be with you ‘til the end of time

When I die, where will I go?
Who can say? Nobody knows.
All the universe will show
Are perfect circles down and endless road

Chorus -
Track Name: Free to Roam
Night lights are creepin’ in now
Moon risin’ in the sky
Cracklin’ of the fire
The flame is my third eye

The stars all speak a language
That we all can hear
Like love and compassion
Just listen close, my dear

Chorus:
Time is on the inside
Love is in the heart
Time is on the inside
Oh I’m free to roam


One place in which we came from
The same we will grow
Like a flower that blooms will stand tall
Until it’s time to go

Our souls are free to fly now
The wind is takin’ hold
Like a kite on a hillside
In the heartland I did know

Chorus:
Time is on the inside
Love is in the heart
Time is on the inside
Oh I’m free to roam


Oh it’s soothes my heart now
That I am free to roam
Like a snake in the bushes
I’ll call this place my home

Chorus (2):
Home, I’ll call this place my home
Oh I’m free to roam
Track Name: If I Was A Ramblin' Man
If I was a ramblin’ man
No longer could my feet withstand
The itch to keep on travelin’, til my soles begin unravelin’,
once again…

I’d make my way from town to town,
No job would ever hold me down,
Never forget a face, but I’d barely leave a trace,
when I move on….

Chorus:

Said I’m on my way to, something better…
Tryin to make some sense
But I’m holding on to, all I’ve gone through,
And it’s time, to let go

Verse 2-

If I was a ramblin’ man
I’d long walk across a foreign land
Not much more on my back, than this old and worn out pack,
And my guitar….

You know I’m always on my way,
And even if I wanted to stay,
Never could stand still, always looking for the thrill,
to end ‘em all …

Chorus

Said I’m on my way to, something better…
Tryin to make some sense
But I’m holding on to, things I’ve gone through,
And it’s time, to let go

Verse 3-

If only I could face my fears
I’m looking back on all these years
Been moving down the line, losing sight of what’s behind,
this weary mind

Chorus

If I was a ramblin’ man
If I was a ramblin’ man
If I was a ramblin’ man
I’d have been gone a long time ago
Track Name: Epic Journey
Well I've got three different girls I could be with tonight,
but each one of them, I only half way like.
If I could blend them up, and our them in a cup,
you know I would drink them down.

But I guess that I can't, so I'll drink whiskey instead.
They say it makes you foggy, but it only clears my head.
But things are so clear now that I can't see anything at all.

So now I sit here in bliss, my face in front of a fan,
while children are dying in Afghanistan,
but I was raised not to care because I'm an American.

Now the birds have quit singing, and that river starts to moan.
A man steps back with a match, lights fire to his home.
Some people will do anything, anything to stay warm.

Now there's foxes on the TV that will eat peoples' minds.
I close my eyes tight for lack of a better place to hide.
Now the only thing that I believe is that everything is a lie.

Now time it is melting, and there ain't too much left.
Sometimes the epic journey feels like a pointless test,
but pointlessness is beauty, and beauty always looks the best.

Unguided hatred, faces mistaken,
useless complaining, trying to ignore.
But the sun's still shining, one day I'll be finding,
that sweet sun shining right out my back door.

Unguided hatred, faces mistaken,
useless complaining, trying to ignore.
But the sun's still shining, one day I'll be finding,
that sweet sun shining right out my back door.
Track Name: Life Goes On
I didn’t see it comin’
I guess that’s not all that true
Acted like it didn’t matter
I was blue over losing you

Been kicked around so many times
It’s best that it’s done
Thought about leavin’
But I didn’t think you’d be the one

Chorus:
Life goes on
Birds will sing their songs
Clouds will roll on
I’ll still the sing the songs I wrote for you


I felt it when you weren’t callin
Our luck was runnin’ out
Saw your face
And I knew what it was all about

Tryin’ to think about the good times
It’s not hard to do
Spent so many times
Searchin for the light with you

Chorus:
Life goes on
Birds will sing their songs
Clouds will roll on
I’ll still the sing the songs I wrote for you


Wonderin’ when the pain will ease
And my mind is free of you
I feel it comin’
When my heart won’t be so blue

Now I spend my nights thinkin’
Of all the things I can do
Lookin’ towards the rising sun
Gonna let my heart be true

Chorus:
Life goes on
Birds will sing their songs
Clouds will roll on
I’ll still the sing the songs I wrote for you
Track Name: 1040
Drivin’ down this long stretch of highway
Sure do wish that I could fly
Sometimes things come’n’go so quickly
The morning always comes so soon

movin all around in my mind
Took a drink of that jar-o-moonshine
Filled my belly with that green organic life
Spread some love, and shout it out
I love to see you smile

Don’t know what to do or what to say
But I still get high
My eyes start burnin’ up, think it’s time to fill my cup
Sunshine’s here once again


movin all around in my mind
movin all around in my mind
movin all around in my mind
This rock has just spun around one more time
Track Name: Big H Blues
Caught in the rain like a time change you don’t expect
Wait for the train downtown, see the heroine kids
Their pockets are full of balloons, but they sink to the ground.
The city makes music, but they’re turning off the sound.

And sometimes the world gets dark, but it always stays true
Lord knows that I got me those hesitation Blues

Like a clown without a circus
Like the ones that love to hurt us
Like the rough jagged surface
Like a god without a purpose
Like a warm dark hole where you would rather stay

Here comes the train, and the lights look like 4th of July
They stumble and drool like they ain’t got nothing to hide
Their eyes roll back to heaven like Lord I’m gonna kiss the sky
But that beauty looks ugly when you look it straight in the eye

It ain’t the escape that’s wrong, it’s the escape that you choose
Lord knows that I got me those hesitation Blues

Like an unseen solar system
Like the too late taken wisdom
Like a tired migrant’s income
Like the thief who played the victim
Like a cards you’d rather fold than try to play

Don’t Let it bring you down
Don’t let ‘em bring you down

Caught in the rain like a time change you don’t expect
Wait for the sound to come out of your new speaker set
The song is hard, but the way the band played it is soft
The clocks they quit counting, and everything starts to stop……

But the time keeps rollin’ on, and there ain’t nothing I can do
Lord knows that I got me those hesitation Blues

How Long, do I have to wait?
Can I get you know, Lord must I hesitate?
