River of Life Friend the sun is out today, brother good news is on the way Listen sonny I can't take more, you're giving me the belly aches You can't see good in anything, pretty soon your gonna break Well I know coz you told me, I know coz you said I was around your place the other day and baby you lost your head You said you can't carry on with things as they are It's really time for a change Time to swim in the river of life, no time to be afraid You wanna go out but you stay at home You got no money but you got a loan You keep on singing the same old song, you will never, never get along Friend I'm talking to you straight, brother no time to hesitate Listen Sonny a few home truths might hit you very hard But what I gotta say right now you just can't disregard Your lover she told me your lover she said I was around you place the other day when she told me you were dead She said that living with you was bringing her down As she cried and hit the floor The cooker blew and the bird did too and I didn't wanna see no more So you got no girl but you got you're Ma Home from the pub you may feel like a star But if you keep on playing that cheap guitar, you will never, never get along Time to swim the river of life, swim in the river of life


She Lights Up From the underworld sir, come bring your light Bring and orchestra to play through the darkest night A ton of feathers weighs the same as a ton of lead Freight train running through the middle of my head So grant me vision, come shake your stick From an ancient path, we can take our pick And see god talking in the fields of grain Singing Hallelujah, I see her face again When she lights up In another world, under natures wing Into the unknown, kicking and screaming A ton of feathers weighs the same as a ton of lead And baby if you want to get well, you know you've got to give When she lights up When I put my around her, tell her that I love her Watch her light up And in the morning when the sun is rising Watch her light up Stolen moments her light is gone, a black robed king just took her by the arm And dragged her down to his dragon bed Singing a ton of feathers weighs the same as a ton of lead When she lights up

Main St I know a girl about twenty five And she told me I got stars written in my eyes But where is she now, lost in the ether of time And I don't play her songs and she don't play mine Down in the bars, down in the bars On Main Street I know a man a good friend of mine And he's seen some things I hope you never see in your life So I guess you could say, he's been about And he knows how it feels to have your heart ripped out Down in the bars, down in the bars On Main Street This dirty game is not for the faint of heart You need resilience like Napoleon Bonaparte And an army of men, and the luck of the Irish too Yeah and helps if you happen to look, just like a movie star Down in the bars, down in the bars On Main Street So lets take to the hills And drink from a mountain stream Sit by the waterfall under the star lit fields And in an hour or two, we'll forget our cares Knock up a fire and laugh about the troubles that we have Down in the bars, down in the bars On Main Street

Why Did You Come Around Up on the roof tiles it's raining cruise missiles From Cupid’s latest bow comes a heat seeking nuclear active arrow I thought I was safe here, in outer Australia Where the roads are dusty and long But you came half the way around the world, just to prove me wrong Wanna start a third world war, wanna cry more more more Wanna lay down the law, why did you come around Wanna piece of history, wanna make love to me C'mon set me free, why did you come around You're just a gypsy, a boat lost at sea Beautiful bag of skin and bones Crying for daddy, trying to find your way home Wanna start a third world war, wanna cry more more more Wanna lay down the law, why did you come around Wanna piece of history, wanna make love to me C'mon set me free, why did you come around All you are asking, it's disaster fashion James Dean, Marylin Monroe Late Michael Hutchence should have stayed with Helen Christiansen Dumped Paula Yates, married Kylie Minogue Wanna start a third world war, wanna cry more more more Wanna lay down the law, why did you come around Wanna piece of history, wanna make love to me C'mon set me free, why did you come around

Henry Roeland Byrd Down at the Mardi Gras, he's tearing out his soul Well, everybody knows, he's the Bach of Rock 'n' Roll He plays the rumba and the mambo There's nothing that he couldn't play on that piano In the tall grass there's an old guy with a white hat and skinny black tie Plays piano in a big chair, introducing Professor Longhair Well he went right off at the Caledonia club one night Blew Fats Domino away and he set the whole place alight Riding six white horses on a trampoline Playing Lady Madonna between his knees In the tall grass there's an old guy with a white hat and skinny black tie Plays piano in a big chair, introducing Professor Longhair Well the sixtys came and fess was out of vogue Swept floors packed boxes, just to buy simple food and clothes Professor Long Hair coming back in style Louisiana Jazz carnival crowd going wild In the tall grass there's an old guy, wears a white hat down by the riverside Plays piano in a big chair, introducing Professor Longhair Professor Longhair

Money Tree Silver dollar gum Oh, when you gonna come and bring me some? Cos I must confess Lately I've not been blessed and my life's a mess Oh, little money tree won't you shake those branches for me Cos I try but I just can't see no ... money for my woman Flying money bird Say now haven't you heard about the dirty word A hundred dollar bills Flying down from the hills, rest upon my window sill Oh, little money tree won't you lower those branches for me Cos I try but I just can't reach ... money for my woman Love and money growing on trees Infect me with your elegant disease Love and money cover my eyes Wake me up when you finally arrive Little money plant Oh, won't you grant me a big advance Cos it’s making her sad And it's driving me mad, what I've never really had Oh, little money tree won't you shake those branches for me Call me blind but I just can't see ... money for my woman Money its all you ever want, money it's all I ever want

Dropout These evergreen lands don't seem to bring you down Autumn leaves are not a problem for you now So take the opportunity and run And sitting here I see how you've become To see things through the eyes of somebody new And see the spirit that I see in you You're no drop out in my eyes You're not all done, I believe for them lights are turning on, turn it on Those old familiar ways that held you back Not such a problem now that you've changed tack And set the main sail into the sun Heart beating rhythm quick like a drum And seize the day in front of you Found a new perspective and a different point of view You're no drop out in my eyes You're not all done, I believe for them lights are turning on, turn it on If it all fails you can still go home But buddy you can't score without a goal And I don't think you're ever coming back No I just don't think we'll ever look back Cos you've seen the way that life can be Yeah you've seen just how good it can be You're no drop out in my eyes You're not all done, I believe for them lights are turning on, turn it on


Jealousy Jealousy is burning me up, baby can't you see Prophecy says you've got a new friend And you don't need me, anymore I'm not happy to see it through and I don't want to break you But there's something I got to do, I got nothing left to lose Baby now I'm keeping it up, but I don't know how, anyway Baby please, please, please, please I'm going crazy as a fool can be, day by day I'm not happy to see it through and I don't want to break you But there's something I got to do, I got nothing left to lose I'm giving it up pretty bab I'm giving it up pretty soon Nobody knows what I need now Nobody knows but me and It feels like murder sometimes, feels like murder to me I never saw you as a cold hard killer Hanging love beneath the black cherry tree Jealousy don't turn me on, when you know I can't believe in love no more Baby please, please, please, please I'm going crazy as a fool can be, day by day I'm not happy to see it through and I don't want to break you But there's something I got to do, I got nothing left to lose


Biggest Fan Your recipe for success you make it look so simple A pinch of blues a dash of country a whole jar of sexual And being around you makes me feel so damn alive And all I'm asking for is just another minute of your time Cos I'm your biggest fan Like putty in your hand Oh yeah I am Do you remember the first time I got your autograph I was standing in the back row just waiting for you to come past And you signed my breast with cherry red indelible ink While your mother stitched a dancing skirt dedicated to the missing link Because I'm your biggest fan Like that song by Eminem Oh yeah I am I'm on the side streets but you're on the main road I'm shifting dirt your shifting units by the truckload. But I've made nothing of myself No never been anyone never even been on TV And all I'm asking for is just another minute Won't you come backstage and see me Because I'm your biggest fan One day you will understand Oh yeah I am


Somebody Elses Day Darling when you stray far from the madding crowd Miles from comfort station and the black veils coming down Remember that the sun still shines in a place not far away Oh the night is nothing more than somebody else's day Maybe you can call me if you starting to freak out In the middle of your night I'll be up and about Sweet technology, let's us talk for hard earned pay Oh the night is nothing more than somebody else's day The ying and the yang, all the highs and lows You don't get one without the other, lover this I know And there'll never be another rainbow if they take away all the rain Oh the night is nothing more than somebody else's day So put on my black cowboy shirt, that one day will surely fade And your pretty white stockings, ladder and turn grey The world it will keep turning and the sun will rise again Oh the night is nothing more than somebody else's friend


Cowboys Will Kill You Well it's a dangerous world out there Aggression on every street People pushing people around Just to lose a little heat Idiots out there Playing with guns and knives Turning up in the heat of the day One hundred degrees Farenheit Cos you're not all right Well I'm losing respect for my kind Who wants to hurt who wants to fight Got no reason but it's all too much I'm going out of my mind With those kids in the alleys Playing with guns and knives Stirring up the trouble In other peoples lives Cos you're not all right


Dark Star I see a man falling from a high building, that's now on fire Thick black smoke is pouring out of my guitar Next thing I hear, a voice that's cried ten thousand years And tremors deep, that picked me up and knocked me off my feet But then the angels came and they duly proclaimed that this is not the end Just another passing phase from the cradle to the grave Dark star, big black hole in my heart So fear set in, anger, rage, retaliation reigned supreme And no one now could save us from these dirty schemes But then the angels came and they duly proclaimed that this is not the end Just another lonely day while god’s on holiday Dark star, big black hole in my heart 21st century sleeping, it’s harder waking up when your dreaming The superstore opens its door this weekend They got everything you want and nothing you need in They've got everything you want and nothing you need in store Dark star, big black hole in my heart In my head there's a dark star, and I don't know if I have a friend Don't know if this is the end or you'll stand and pretend Stand and pretend its not clear
