GET THE LOSERS OUT Gotta get the losers out They come around And bring their doubts Gotta get the losers out How will it go I don’t know Cos when you speak Well it don’t mean nothing to me But then again We’re once friends But you can see This time we’ll part enemies And so it goes The chorus flows We’re back again This time I’ll win You don’t wanna see What you can’t fault in me Gotta get the losers out They hang around With heavy doubts Gotta get the losers out And so it goes The chorus flows We’re back again This time I’ll win You don’t wanna see What you can’t fault in me Gotta get the losers out They come around And bring their doubts Gotta get the losers out

SWEETHEART OF THE RODEO She’s the sweetheart of the rodeo With South Texas roots She’s been sleeping all on her own With every name she’s used She don’t know what stands Beneath her all the way Cos time don’t matter Just livin’ for today And it goes to show You never know She’s the sweetheart of the rodeo With South Texas roots She’s been livin’ all on her own With every lie she’s used Her eyes, her cries Are gonna keep ya from that warm Gulf shine Your heart, your strife I wanna save you from your dead-end life

BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE Bottom of the bottle On a Friday night While you’re on the other side of town I’m stuck here Without you near And I hope that makes you feel alright I’ve been away too long for you I can tell I’ve been away too long now And you’ve gone as well Sing me back to the girl I knew before Sing me back to the girl I called my own Listen to the song I’m singing Listen to tune we’re playing Bottom of the bottle On a Friday night You’re on the other side of town I’m stuck here Without you near And I hope that makes you feel alright

WESTWARD HEAVEN I don’t know where I’m going But I’m headed for you tonight I don’t know where I’m going But I’m gonna make it to the light Westward Heaven Is all I ever see Westward Heaven Is all I’ll ever need I’ve said it all before But I’m believing in you tonight I’ve said it all before You’re gonna help me make it to the light The sun’s been setting low And I’ve been feeling it’s time to go, The sun’s been setting low But above the harvest moon still glows Westward Heaven Is all I ever see Westward Heaven Is all I’ll ever need You and me should be together Cos it’s taken us so long Westward Heaven Is all I ever see Westward Heaven Is all I’ll ever need

Come Along & Thrill Us (from the CD "North Hollywood Skyline") Won't you come along and thrill us We've been waitin' here for awhile Won't you come along and kill us You know we miss that devil smile You know we miss that devil smile Seasons change & I didn't know what to do I figured you out while the lights were all turning blue That's when you said I gotta believe All them lies you sold to me And they're paid for I can't believe But I know, I still owe Won't you come along and thrill us We've been waitin' here for awhile Won't you come along and kill us You know we miss that devil smile You know we miss that devil smile Everytime you say the things That I feel but you don't mean And they're paid for you can believe But I know, I still owe So won't you come along and thrill us We've been waitin' here for awhile Won't you come along and kill us You know we miss that devil smile

WE’RE ALT-COUNTRY (& YER NOT) We're alt-country And you’re not We're alt-country It’s gotta stop Sing about denim shirts And Wilco concerts Got a horse on the sleeve Of our new CD We're alt-country And you’re not We're alt-country You’re too pop We're alt-country It’s gotta stop We wear cowboy boots And we talk with a twang We’re from parts Oh, north of Maine We play bluegrass And the talking blues Learned it all At the Guitar Institute (hey!) We're alt-country And you’re not We're alt country You’re pop-rock We're alt country And you’re not We're alt-country It’s gotta stop We're alt-country And you’re not We're alt country Not Britpop We're alt-country And you’re not We're alt-country It’s gotta stop

NORTH HOLLYWOOD SKYLINE We can get a drink at the Money Tree Or come see me at the UBG Either way it’s okay You can get home on the subway In my mind Nights are fine Most of the time ‘Neath the North Hollywood Skyline North Hollywood Skyline North Hollywood Skyline North Hollywood Skyline You can get a tea or an antique cloth And if you drove find somewhere to park Not a lot of thrills you can buy That’s okay cos in my mind The air is fine Most of the time Except summertime ‘Neath the North Hollywood Skyline North Hollywood Skyline North Hollywood Skyline North Hollywood Skyline

Charade 05:19
CHARADE It’s all fake It’s all a charade Like the moon in a windowpane The world for you surely waits Take your time but don’t hesitate You’re like me You got nothing to gain Turn your back Don’t follow the game You won’t learn til it’s too late Small town charm won’t save the day Thieves like us We got nowhere to turn Hold on tight but it’s gonna burn In days like these when nothing’s at stake Take your time but don’t hesitate Don’t hesitate It’s old news In the same refrain It’s all blues And don’t you know you’ll sing them with me I can see… It’s all fake It’s all a charade Like the moon in a windowpane The world for you surely waits So take your time but don’t hesitate

Names 03:50
NAMES Yeah, I know where you’re going And I go where you’re going But I didn’t get too far You said who do you think you are But if you told me what to say then I’d believe you But I can tell you what I’ve seen And all the places that you’ve been I’d tell you what I heard before But you know it’s all the same Never knew your name Never prayed in vain Never been to heaven But you’ll never make me wait You always took my time Deprived me of my spine Keep me up on Never Street Saying don’t you ever forget to tell Yeah, I know where you’re going And I go where you’re going, too But we didn’t get too far We nearly touched the stars Told me what to say and I’d believe you But you could always think out loud As you’re singing to the crowd You reach the goal The game is sold It’s always been that way
