1. COMPANY OF STRANGERS

way out from the low lands
The son of a preacher man
Then he seemed to lose direction
On his way to the promised land, no no

It started with a woman
And it ended in a bottle fight
The jury would not forgive him
When he took a man within an inch of his life

When they took away his freedom
Buried his soul aside, no no

In the company of strangers
You find the enemy within, no
And the walls that capture evil
Keep the faith from getting in
In the company of strangers

So he sits behind these gray walls
Staring at the yellow moon
His dreams lie shattered all around him
Casting shadows into his room, baby

When they took away his freedom
They buried his soul aside, no no

In the company of strangers
You find the enemy within, no
And the walls that capture evil
Keep the faith from getting in
In the company of strangers

So the years passed by one day
Steps outside to the blinding sun
No money in his pockets, and his clothes ?????
But under his shirt he wears a gun, no no

When they buried him the very next morning
That went wrong
In a graveyard full of outlaws
In a stranger's

In the company of strangers
You find the enemy within, no no
And the walls that capture evil
Keep the faith from getting in

In the company of strangers
You find the enemy within
And the walls that capture evil
Keep the faith from getting in

In the company, in the company of strangers
Listen, I've gotta get out of here, I've gotta get out of Here...


2. CLEARWATER HIGHWAY

alright, alright, alright, alright, alright

You get my motor running as soon as I get next to you
Got the fuel to fire, you know there's no time to lose
You watch me slip away in the shadows of the night
So many things that I wanna say, now I've gotta go
Gotta hit the road, gonna catch a ride on

Clearwater highway
Through the driving rain
Gonna strike like lightning
Be a while till I'm back again, yeah

Seems like you are the last to know, but it ain't that way
Sit back and watch the river flow, 'times it slips away, Yeah yeah
Better take just one last loop 'cause I'm on my way
Like the pages of a well-read book that might stop the Fate, hold on
Don't let me slip away

On a clearwater highway
Through the driving rain
Gonna strike like lightning
Be a while till I'm back again, yeah

On a clearwater highway
Through the driving rain
Gonna strike like lightning
Be a while till I'm back again, yeah

Alright

On a clearwater highway
Through the driving rain
Gonna strike like lightning
Be a while till I'm back again, yeah

On a clearwater highway
Through the driving rain
Gonna strike like lightning
Be a while, be a while till I'm back again

Back again
Yeah, I'm going back baby
Clearwater highway
Alright, alright, alright...


3. JUDAS MY BROTHER

She ran away from home, just-a 15 years old
Headed for the city where innocence is sold
Headed for the wrong crowds, the company of fools
Could only chase those promises, got no time to lose

She's just a little misunderstood
Why did they have to turn their backs on you? Oh no no

Judas my brother, she's been good to you, good to you
Judas my brother, why did they have to turn their backs on You?
Judas my brother

Yeah
Come on

Your momma, she's been drinking, and dad is no better, too
Spending all their money, neglecting you
They treat you like a prisoner, like yesterday's news
Could only chase those promises, got no time to lose

She's just a little misunderstood, yeah
Why did they have to turn their backs on you? Oh no no

Judas my brother, she's been good to you, good to you
Judas my brother, why did they have to turn their backs on You?
Judas my brother

She's just a little misunderstood, yeah
Why did they have to turn their backs on you? Oh no no

Judas my brother, she's been good to you, good to you
Judas my brother, why did they have to turn their backs on You?
Judas my brother, she's been good to you, oh no
I said Judas, Judas my brother, why did they have to turn Their backs on you?
Judas my brother, my brother, yeah

Judas my brother
Turn their backs on you, baby
Headed for the city

Turn their backs, turn their backs
Don't walk away, only meant to stay
Don't you turn your backs


4. LITTLE MARTHA

Hello little Martha
There you stand with the stems of the roses still in your Hand
The seasons of time
The weather, your face, you little Martha, there's no Disgrace

So now little Martha, here you live
You're just 12 years old, have no time to play

The sun don't arise when you're not in my eyes
Not a day goes by without you
Even though you're looking down on me
Tell me angel, will you remember me?

Oh little Martha, as I stand at your feet
I see now that the circle is ought to complete
Now while I stand here feeling so sad
Because we both know the good times we had

So now little Martha, here you live
Your life is all gone, no time to play, oh

The sun don't arise when you're not in my eyes
Not a day goes by without you
Even though you're looking down on me
Tell me angel

The sun don't arise when you're not in my eyes
Not a day goes by without you
Even though you're looking down on me
Tell me angel, will you remember me?

Oh little Martha


5. GIMME GIMME

I rode into town last night, it must've been a quarter to Three
I was looking for a place to clash, have some company
I saw you baby, sitting at the end of the bar
Hey honey, won't you come home with me? Won't you jump Into my car?

You're gonna gimme all of your lovin'
Need it night and day
You're gonna gimme all your sweet lovin'
Stop me slippin' away, yeah

Leaving in the morning, headed for Chicago town
Hey baby, you know I ain't gonna call ya, so don't follow Me around
I guess we had a good time, could I paint the town
But for now I'll be on my way, oh next time around I'm Gonna give ya

All your sweet lovin'

You're gonna gimme all your sweet lovin'
All your sweet lovin', yeah

Hear what I say
All your sweet lovin'


6. WHERE I BELONG

I'm making sure another late night drags on
Just one more drink, but you know I'm wrong
Sooner or later, when everyone's gone
You just shake your head and take my hand

You seem to know what it takes me time to tell
But then you know me, surprises me how well
You make me an offer that I can't refuse
Take my arm and walk away

Help me find my way home
Along this rocky road, 'cause I can't carry on
Will you head me to my bed
Ease my aching head, take me where I belong

Sometimes you smile at the clothes that I wear
You listen to reason when I just don't care
It's bringing me down, then I start to fall
You catch my heart and don't let it go

Help me find my way home
Along this rocky road, 'cause I can't carry on
Will you head me to my bed
Ease my aching head, take me where I belong

As I see you lay your head
I'm glad it's next to mine, mine, whoa

Won't you come on home?

Help me find my way home
Along this rocky road, 'cause I can't carry on
Will you head me to my bed
And ease my aching head, take me where I belong

Help me find my way home
Along this rocky road, 'cause I can't carry on
Will you head me to my bed
And ease my aching head, take me where I belong

Take me home
Take me home


7. DOWN DOWN DOWN

Well, I’m Deep Down
I Saw You Baby In The Corner Of My Eye

You Drove By Me In A Purple Cadillac

8. ABANDONED AND ALONE

Fugitive soul out on parole
Standing alone, no, where can I go?
In a world so cold with no hand to hold
Searching through my heart, yeah, but nobody knows

And if I wondered why, maybe I would break
If I wondered how much more I can take
If I changed my mind, who could I tell?
If I made the time, I know that well

I'm abandoned and alone, no easy road
Side against a side, no place to hide
I'm abandoned and alone, no easy road
Leaves a man a tormented soul

You know it does, baby

Just follow the dream, I'll do what I can
I've got to be strong, you know, you know I got, I got a Plan

If I wondered why, maybe I would break
If I wondered how much more I can take
If I changed my mind, who could I tell?
If I changed the time, I know that well

I'm abandoned and alone, no easy road
Side against a side, no place to hide
I'm abandoned and alone, no easy road
Leaves a man a tormented soul

If I wondered why, maybe I would break
If I wondered how much more I can take
If I changed my mind, who could I tell?
If I made the time, I know that well

I'm abandoned and alone, no easy road
Side against a side, no place to hide
I'm abandoned and alone, no easy road
Leaves a man a tormented soul

I'm abandoned and alone, no easy road
Side against a side, no place to hide
I'm abandoned and alone, no easy road
Leaves a man a tormented soul

Even that was wearing thin
Turned around one day and you were standing there, babe
You made my life begin

You're the only reason I'm living
I'm loving every minute with you, yeah
You're the reason I'm living
And I owe it all to you

12. DANCE WITH THE DEVIL

With just one look my body's shook
You made me ache, shiver and shake
My blood is hot, I'm in a trance
For what you've got I wanna take a chance

Dance with the devil
I want ya, yes I do
Dance with the devil
And the devil is you

My mind's in a twist I can't resist
Your sugar laced thighs got me hypnotized
I'm obsessed, I want to possess your love tonight

13. LOVING YOU OUT LOUD

If I kissed you when you least expect it
And take you in my arms, just accept it
If I tell you you're what my life's about
I'm only loving you out loud

When I call you up on the telephone
And tell you that I'm feeling oh so alone
I wanna love you dear inside out(?)
I'm only loving you out loud

The times that we spent together
Are the best that I've ever known
No matter what the future may bring, baby
It's loving you from now on, oh baby

And take you in my arms, just accept it
If I tell you you're what my life's about, yeah

You know I'm only loving you out loud
