Track Name: The Weed and the Wine
The whole room it is spinning, with the thought of your smile
I'm dizzied by the look in your eyes
And I wish I could hold you, if just for a while
Until the day that the sun doesn’t rise

Your dark, flowing hair makes weak in the knees
Your touch makes me want to break down
And if I could convince you, to dance down the street
I'd spin towards the bright side of town

And the song the band’s playing, never sounded so good
I never have felt quite this fine
Well, it could be the way that I love you my dear
Or it could be the weed and the wine

There’s a buzz in my mind, and a belly of wine
I’ve put down a bottle or two
And if not for your love, I’d be drunk all the time
‘cause the smoke here reminds me of you

I’m leaving the bar room, down Josephine street
The street lights are bright as the day
And they make me uneasy ‘cause everyone sees
That I can’t help but love you this way

And the song the band’s playing, never sounded so good
I never have felt quite this fine
Well, it could be the way that I love you my dear
Or it could be the weed and the wine
Track Name: Long Road to Denver
It’s a long road to Denver from Laredo
It’s a long road to happiness from home
It’s a long road to the arms of the woman that I love
It’s a long road to Denver from Laredo

I sure do miss my Colorado baby
I miss her more each beating of my heart
So I’ll venture ‘cross the largest state in the lower 48
Just hoping for the day we’ll never part

It’s a long road to Denver from Laredo
It’s a long road to happiness from home
It’s a long road to the arms of the woman that I love
It’s a long road to Denver from Laredo

One hundred and fifty miles to San Antonio
Two hundred and fifty more to Abilene
Stop in Lubbock, Amarillo, Raton, New Mexico
Until I break down south of Colorado Springs

It’s a long road to Denver from Laredo
It’s a long road to happiness from home
It’s a long road to the arms of the woman that I love
It’s a long road to Denver from Laredo
Track Name: If I Let You Go Again
If I let you go again, I won’t forgive myself
I’ll just sit here and imagine you with someone else
And it tears me up to think that this could really be the end
I’ll regret it, if I let you go again.

If I let you go again, I just won’t live it down.
I’ll stay awake and have myself another round.
But the whiskey that is flowing through my heart is all in vain.
I’ll regret it, if I let you go again.

If I let you go again, would you change your mind?
Would give me one more chance and let me call you mine?
If I let you go again, would you still remember me,
Or just forget it, If I let you go again?
Track Name: Thunder
Seems it's always raining when I'm all alone
Seems it's always raining everywhere I go
Sliding everywhere, running right off the road
But if it's just a little rain, I won't mind at all
Oh, but thunder, that'll be the death of me
Felt like thunder, that's the mess you brought on me
Brought on me

Seems there's lightning every time I'm on my own
Seems there's lightning every day since you've been gone
And if the lights go out, you'll find me on the boulevard
And if the lights go out, I won't mind at all
Oh, but thunder, that'll be the death of me
Felt like that thunder, that's the mess you brought on me

(Oooo) I'm sliding everywhere
(Oooo) There's lightning everywhere
(Oooo) What am I gonna do?
I can't get over you.

Seems it's always raining when I'm all alone.
Seems there's lightning every day since you've been gone
Oh, but thunder, that'll be the death of me
Felt like thunder, that's the mess you brought on me
Brought on me.
