Track Name: Blue Ridge
I’m like the Blue Ridge
I’m like the blue ridge mountains
lots of people surroundin’
but barely even a sound on those blue ridge mountains

Oh and I’m like a fountain
that flows free
Lots of people drop change in
but that’s the only change that I ever see

I’m like an old boat
stuck on land instead of the sea
And I’ve got an old hope
that some day someone will pilot me

Sometimes I feel like a river
that’s trying to reach the sea
but frozen by the cold winds
that keep on blowin, blowin on me

but even some birds
are stuck on the ground, unable to fly
but the mountains,
they reach up, they reach up and touch the sky
so maybe those mountains, ain’t so bad after all
stuck to the ground, but at least they stand,
they stand up tall

Oh I’m like the blue ridge
I’m like the blue ridge mountains
standing up tall, looking strong
standing up tall, looking strong, where I belong
Track Name: Carolina Queen
Well I went up to Virginia
but the winters were just too, bitter cold
and I journeyed down to Florida
but the heat and all them gators, got real old

but Carolina’s the perfect in between
she ain’t always the prettiest
but she’s definitely the Queen

So Carolina, keep drawin me back home
I can always find ya, in my heart wherever I roam

Well I went down to Atlanta
and got stuck in traffic all day long
on my way down to New Orleans
but the bourbon only ever did me wrong

but Carolina’s got everything I need
from the mountains, down to the glistening sea

So Carolina, keep drawin me back home
I can always find ya, in my heart wherever I roam

and if I ever think of leaving
she keeps pulling on all the strings
think I’ll keep this Carolina in my heart above most anything
and If I wander away
she keeps telling me to stay
for at least a little while longer

Well I’ve never been to China
but maybe one day I’ll see that great big wall
And I’ll see those Himalayas
but man, the blue ridge just beats them all

Cause Carolina’s a beauty all her own
There may be prettier places out there, but none can call my own

So Carolina keep drawin me back home
I can always find ya, in my heart wherever I roam
Carolina, keep drawing me
back, home
Track Name: I've Got You
I’ve got a broken soul
And a heart that’s gone cold
From lovers lost, and feeling tossed out from the mold
And I played my cards wrong
Traded love for a song
Wrote it down, shot it down, and tore it all up

But I’ve got you
I’ve got you
I tried to stand on my own,
but all I needed was you

And it’s true
I’m quite the fool
But I’m a fool that’s down on my knees asking “What should I do?”

But I’ve got you
I’ve got you
I tried to stand on my own
But all I needed was you

And I was lost and alone
Out in the unknown
With nothing left to hold on to

But I've got you
I’ve Got You
I tried to do it alone, but what I needed was you
and It’s true
I’ve still got you
cause I tried to stand on my own but all I needed was
cause I tried to stand on my own but all I needed was
cause I tried to stand on my own but all I needed was
You
Track Name: Weather The Storm
It ain’t rained in forty days
But I see the clouds coming through that humid haze
I ran up to your door and rang the bell
first thing that you said to me was boy you look like hell

And I said Hey Hey Mama, I’m tired of these streets
I need me a bottle of whiskey and something good to eat
Please give me shelter, and help me keep warm
Everybody needs someone to weather the storm

Well she says boy you been gone for 2 years time
I ain’t heard a word from you, so don’t give me no lines
Go on in and washup and get you some food
and stay off that whiskey son, it’ll do you no good

Hey Hey Mama, I’m tired of these streets
I need me a bottle of whiskey and something (good) to eat
Please give me shelter, and help me keep warm
Everybody needs someone to weather the storm

It started rainin’ as I turned on the water
to wash away all the shame
and I said hold on before we get much further
can you please, tell me my name?

You said son
you are my son

And I said Hey Hey Mama, I’m tired of these streets
I need me a bottle of whiskey and something good to eat
Please give me shelter, and help me keep warm
Everybody needs someone to weather the storm
Track Name: Begin Again
I went up
to the city of flashing lights
and I woke up
to that unfamiliar skyline
oh but these days
my worries seem to cut through the fog and the haze
but the light can’t seem
to find his way back to me

and I wonder how
could I feel the warmth again

Just begin again

And I got up
from that same old resting place
brushed my hair to the side
and fluffed up my pillowcase
I looked in the mirror
at the reckless face of a man
he said what are we gonna do with you
and I said whatever we can

but I hope one day
I can do more than hope again

and just begin again
come along my friend
we can start all over again
and just begin again
Track Name: Smile
Well I used to think that love was dead
maybe it was something just in my head
I went looking for it anyway
Well how was I supposed to know
How feelings for another were supposed to grow
I was on my own
You were quiet and still
sittin in the corner by the window sill
keepin to yourself
well i knew a whole lot of folks
but you caught my eye and my broken hopes
when you looked at me

And then you Smiled and set my heart on fire
standing in my way just like a trippin wire
a speed bump that picked me right back up
and now I’m fine when you come around
picking me up everytime I’m down
Can you please stay for awhile
and give me a smile

Well I couldn’t believe my eyes
I’d bought into these spoken lies
of love in just a glance
well it had to be true with you
I’d never felt these feelings it was something new
a beauty I’d never seen

And you just Smiled and set my heart on fire
standing in my way just like a trippin wire
a speed bump that picked me right back up
and now I’m fine whenever you come around
picking me up everytime I’m down
Can you please stay for awhile
and give me a smile

You broke my heart in two
and sewed it right back up
when you smiled at me
I’d never felt so free

Well you, took my heart in your hand
I was barely a boy not even a man
and I said, Girl hold on for a minute
I just want to be sure that your heart is in it
and you looked at me

and you said Smile you set my heart on fire
standing in my way just like a trippin wire
a speed bump that picked me right back up
and now I’m fine whenever you come around
picking me up everytime I’m down
Can you please stay for awhile
and give me a smile
