Track Name: Ain't Got That Much to Loose
Ain't Got That Much To Loose (Paul Dunn)


I work each day from nine to five down on the killin' floor
I drag myself home half alive, next day I go back for more
The way you treat me sometimes baby I swear that you're gonna be
Hangin' with these sides of beef in the cold room wait and see

CHORUS
Until then I'm just working and payin' my dues
It's no sin I'm just working and payin' my dues
Playing and singing the blues
I ain't got that much too loose

I use to work the mine for coal today and nearly every day
Staying in a dark hole just to make my hard earn pay
And when I get home you put me down much lower than the deepest shaft
One of these days, I'll drag you down that hole and you'll never be coming back

REPEAT CHORUS

One of these days I'll be a millionaire, I'm going to take the money and run
One of these days I'll be a millionaire, I'm going to take it with a knife and gun
Well if you see me down in Vegas baby don't forget to give me a wave
I'll leave some change by the poolside honey, so you can't say I never gave

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Counting on You
Countin' On You (Dunn/Quinn)


Some ladies like to rock and some ladies like to roll
Some of them like to tell you, some like to be told
Buy me a drink and I'll show you a good time
A lot of thirsty women, there's a lot of good wine
You try your best to please me; don't make it so damn easy
Cause you got all the love that I need to get me through
I'm countin' on you

Well there's shootin stars, in down town bars, it's all the same to me
Too many faces and too many places, oh, that so plain to see
I hope it's your love I'm seeking, cause seeing is believing
That you got all the love that I need to get me through
You've got all the love that I need to get me through

Got all the love that I need, I'm countin' on you
Got all the love that I need to get me through
Got all the love that I need, I'm countin' on you
To get me through, don't let me down
I'm countin' on you
Every night and every day
Track Name: Don't Give it Up
Don't Give It Up (Matt Minglewood)


Don't give it up
Don't you ever say we're through
Don't' give it up
It will all come back to you
You may think you have lost your man
Maybe he don't understand, he needs you
He'll come back to you

Don't give it up
Don't you ever pull apart
Don't give it up
Never stay down on the rug
You may think that God himself
Has put you permanently on the shelf
Just believe, believe in what you do

CHORUS
Cause there's a time for fighting
There's a time for comprimising
Time for running, time for realizing
Sometimes we all have to choose
Oh well it's nice to win
But sometimes we have to loose

Don't give it up
Don't you ever lay down and die, don't give it up
Jump back and give it one more try
You may think that you have reached the end
And lost all of your good time friends
But the real ones they'll come back to you

REPEAT CHORUS

Don't give it up
Don't give it up
Don't give it up
Don't give it up
Don't you ever give in
Track Name: Dorchester
Dorchester (Matt Minglewood)


Somewhere in the dark, in a town beneath the border
There's a woman who cries in the night
She has been a loner ever since he's known her
But she keeps her loneliness out of sight
Somewhere on the coast near the Bay of Fundy
There's a place called Dorchester town
In a cell on the block behind the walls of the prison
There's a man on a real come down

They had got together a long long time ago
The love burned right from the start
Buddy was an outlaw, though he tried to change
He just kept breaking her heart
I don't know how it started but I do know how it ended
And it ended up the way it is now
He's doing 20 years in the Dorchester Prison
She's doing 20 years somehow

CHORUS
If he never pulled the gun
He'd never end up on the run
If she never listened to her heart
Why did she listen, listen to her heart

Somehow the years have past and two more hours he's free at last
He'll walk past that wall
Sixty miles down the road, she's driving north with a heavy load
She' s not sure at all

Has he really changed his ways
Or will she only count the days, till the teardrops fall
Will he end up on the run, his only friend a cold gun
When he hears the outlaw call

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: East Coast Blues
East Coast Blues (Matt Minglewood)

The wheels on this old bus keep right on turning
On the highway across New Brunswick now they're burning
And if we don't break down this time
We'll hit the border at just about nine
Cross the state of Maine to the border again we go

We've got a rockin' blues band trying the best that we can to please you
Heading off to the big city trying to find somebody who needs us
And if the man will just say you on
These poor boys are gonna be just about gone
Never gonna have the East Coast Blues again

Rambling, gambling, searching
Trying to find the right chord blues

We hit the 401 past Montreal
When I get to Toronto, I swear that I might have myself a ball
But this old engine been holdin' on
Just about a thousand miles too long
How can we roll if the wheels won't go no more

A rented truck might change our luck, so we got one
Six in the front seat, driving down Younge Street laughing
But when the man came to hear our songs
He said "I'm sorry boys but you're comin' on way to strong
We can't get it on the radio"

Rambling, gambling, searching
Trying to find the right chord blues

We're a rockin' blues band trying the best we can to please you
We're heading off to the big city trying to find a man to see us
But when the man came to hear our songs
He said, "I'm sorry boys you're comin' on way to strong"
He said: "We can't get it on the radio"

Rambling, gambling, searching
Trying to find the right chord blues
Track Name: If You Really Need Me
If You Really Need Me(Matt Minglewood)

Step right up and tell me baby
Just what's on your mind
You've been hanging around this house
Your head in a bind
And every time that happens baby
You say I'm unkind
But misery loves company
I can tell by the way you're looking at me
I'm going to be on the line

Yeah, I know that you love me
I just feel that it's true
Breaks my heart to see you suffer this way
Lord, what did I do to you
Is it that I really do you so wrong
Maybe it's just circumstance
Just like the words to some forgotten love song
Has your life lost its romance

CHORUS
If you really need need me
Please don't say good-bye
For I know that I give you
Too many reasons to cry

Step right up and tell me baby
Just what's on your mind
Cause misery loves company
I can tell by the way your looking at me
I'm going to be on the line

Must be some kind of way out of this hell
Put it back to the way it was in the past
Maybe tomorrow everything will be well
I just want our love to last

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE
Track Name: Jed
Jed (Matt Minglewood)

I'd like to tell you a story
About a man that I once knew
Not the kind of man to give you trouble
You'd never see him messing with you
You'd see him every night at the end of the bar
He only had a drink or two
And then one night it happened
I t was just like he blew a fuse
Now Jeds on the run with a 45 gun
With nothing to loose

There were'nt too many who seen it
Because it happened right by the door
A stranger walked into the nightclub
But he was dead before he hit the floor
Some people say they know the reason
Why Jed shot him through
Jed had a wife was killed in the night
And the judge turned that killer loose
Now Jeds on the run with a 45 gun
With nothing to loose

CHORUS
Running scared, trying to get ahead of the law
Running scared, trying to stay ahead of the law
Jed's on the run with a 45 gun
With nothing to loose

Jed's on the run with a 45 gun
With nothing to loose

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Me & My Baby
Me and My Baby (Roy Forbes)


CHORUS
Me and my baby got a mattress on the floor
We don't need much more, no we don't
Me and my baby got some pictures on the wall
That ain't all it easy to see
Me and my baby got a lot of things we don't have to talk about

Me and my baby we don't shout it to the clouds
We don't have to be so loud, no we don't
Me and my baby we don't have to reassure because
We know for sure, yes it's true
Me and my baby got a lot of things we don't have to talk about

People say we don't look happy
They say we don't look like we have a good time
But all those people like to hear themselves talking
That's all right we don't mind

REPEAT CHORUS

Me and my baby got a lot of things we don't have to talk about
We don't have to talk about
We don't have to talk about
We don't have to talk about
Track Name: Price He Pays
Price He Pays (Enver Sampson Jr)

Cold clear nights on the open road
Jacks and Jills help share this load
Asking them questions, there's no answer for
Lookin' for her face behind every door

CHORUS
What's that you say
What can make a man feel that way
Guess you could say that's the price he pays for lovin' you
Guess you could say that's the price he pays for lovin' you

Ups and downs he's had them before
But this is something he never bargained for
These are just changes that he's going through
Oh, Lord them changes, what's he going to do

REPEAT CHORUS

For lovin you what's he going to do

Time is a healer that's what some people say
But time travels slow, when you're living from day to day
You think he would have learned these things by now
Oh but all of life's lessons they mean nothin' somehow

REPEAT CHORUS

The price he pays
Can't you see that's the price he pays
Track Name: Rocket Fuel
Rocket Fuel (Minglewood/MacMillan)

Out on the road doing one night stands
I feel my life slipping through my hands
Get a shot of rock and roll in my veins
Throw a saddle on my guitar and let me have the rein
We're gonna rocket, yeah we're gonna rocket tonight

Well it ain't the kind of feeling you can easily describe
When the rhythm picks your backbone up and takes it for a ride
Lord what a feeling when the music starts to groove
My whole damn body just starts to move
We're gonna rocket, yeah we're gonna rocket tonight

Fill her up with rocket fuel
Ride it to the sky
Keep your rocket reelin' till we see the sun shine
There's only one thing I need to get up off the ground
I need a mesa boogie just to do the mess around
Mess around yeah those old 88's

Well it ain't the kind of feeling you can easily describe
When the rhythm picks your backbone up and takes it for a ride
Lord what a feeling when the music starts to groove
My whole damn body just starts to move
We're gonna rocket, yeah we're gonna rocket tonight

Fill her up with rocket fuel
Ride it to the sky
Keep your rocket reelin' till we see the sun shine
There's only one thing I need to get up off the ground
I need a mesa boogie just to do the mess around
Mess around yeah those old 88's

We're gonna rocket tonight
We're gonna rocket tonight
We're gonna rocket tonight
We're gonna rocket tonight
Track Name: Tight Rope
Tight Rope (Paul Dunn)

You're out on a ledge now and I know that's cause for alarm
You're too near the edge now
To fall would bring only harm
All eyes are upon you
They watch and wonder what you'll do
So turn round and come down now

If you going but you don't know where
You don't really care, better listen to me
It's wrong for you to throw your life away
Hear what I say, better wait and see

It's no life on the high wire and there's no life in the ring of fire
Don't hang from the trapeze, let someone else be the clown please
Pack up and away we go
Then we'll be gone before the second show,
New life awaits us

CHORUS
I've seen the darkness and I've seen the light
I've seen what's right and it's right with you
We'll take the good and we'll take the bad
And still be glad that our love is true

REPEAT CHORUS
