There’s a cloud on the horizon Rain on the wind I believe I should be leavin’ I’m not sure where to begin CHORUS It’s a long and a lonesome road But I won’t walk alone It’s a long and a lonesome road That will lead me back home There’s a shadow at my shoulder Hesitation in my tread I’m going to need you here beside me To guide me through what lies ahead I’ll see my friends; I’ll see my family ‘Though the way may be hard and cold But this sweet, sweet harmony Will surely help me reach my goal

Tennessee 03:11
Last night I took a ride In my pickup truck Lookin’ for the girl of my dreams ‘Fore I run outta luck Cut her a song in Nashville “Little Miss Mystery” She may have heard it on the radio But there’s no guarantee Oh, Tennessee, see what you do to me She’s a skinny country girl Never got a second glance ‘Til she wound up in a Memphis bar Found a brand new way to dance She shed her inhibitions In the land of make-believe Now she’s reaching for the stars And the Smithville jamboree Oh, Tennessee, see what you do to me She got grit and she got rhythm In her Southern soul So sad last time I saw her Wrapped around a dancing pole I said, baby, be my inspiration And I’ll be your key We’ll drive to Chattanooga For our matrimony Oh, Tennessee, see what you do to me

The Storm 03:14
There’s a sudden wind And the rain drives down They say there’s more to come, Rivers swell And the world is drown’d But you won’t see me run; I staked my claim I have you by my side In spirit and in name Have no fear, we’ll still be standing here When the storm has gone. Mountains slide And cities fall From Ur to Babylon, We slip from grace On our knees we crawl We pray we may be strong; Though my body’s frail And though I know the light Will flicker in the gale Have no fear we’ll still be standing here When the storm has gone. And the river says ‘Take me home’ And the wind cries ‘Let all before me scatter and run’ But have no fear We’ll still be standing here When the storm has gone.

Sleepy John 02:59
I drove into Brownsville Brownsville, Tennessee I parked up and walked around To see what I could see I met the ghost of Sleepy John He shook me by the hand I said, why John - you’re dead and gone I don’t understand. CHORUS I’m just doing the best I can I’m doing the best I can Life has it’s ups And has it’s downs I take like a man I’m doing the best I can Well, I’ve seen my life before me The bitter and the sweet Now I know how luck can turn In the space of one heartbeat But the girls I left behind me Are standing in a line They smile at me & all agree The fault was never mine. Out here in the dark It’s coming on to rain I wonder if I’ll ever see My hometown again; Ten thousand miles behind me So many more to go I’ve worn out my walking shoes More times ‘n I - care to know
