¡Amigos! 03:32
When you're out at the bar and you've had way too much Who's gonna come pick you up? Next time please call me and don't go to jail You still owe me last weekend's bail Wherever we go, no matter how far Nothing can change who we are Amigos, amigos When your piece of shit pickup breaks down once again I know you don't have AAA Who will reluctantly help out a friend? Who's only a phone call way? And when you've got a secret that you need to hide, who's gonna keep it inside Amigos, right from the start Amigos, we'll never part Amigos, that's Spanish for friends Amigos, until the end And if some jerk, down at your work Is pissing you off to no end Don't kick his ass, you'll probably get canned I'll handle your light work my friend When you're crazy ass girlfriend kicks you out again You know who lives just 'round the bend By the way that relationship's one you should end I'm telling you this as a friend Cause I heard she's banging like 10 other guys Amigos will tell you no lies Amigos, right from the start Amigos, we'll never part Amigos, means Spanish for friends Amigos, until the end

Call It Good 02:22
For reasons not too hard to comprehend The story here is comin' to an end So things didn't go the way we thought they could Why don't we agree to call it good No way we can go back the start There is nothing left to tear apart No need to explain What is understood Why don't we agree to call it good May the road rise to meet you The sunshine always greet you And may the wind be always at your back Let's have no regrets We did the best we could But the time is right to call it good We did our best, outlasted all the rest But in the end we couldn't pass the test And things didn't go Like we hoped they would The time has come for us to call it good The time is right for us to call it good Why don't we agree to call it good

There's a dude a know from north of Mexico Some people call him Roger I just call him bro And I also call him Singing Scorpion and the Dylan of the desert and the poet on the run His name is Roger Clyne and he lives among the cactus He's never on time and he doesn't like to practice He always leaves 'em wanting more He's the Tucson Troubadour He is lean and mean, a songwriting machine He wrote that song Banditos, and the King of the Hill Theme He is also a conservationist and when people don't recycle, he gets kinda pissed His name is Roger Clyne and lives among the cactus He's never on time and he doesn't like to practice He sings about an open door He's the Tucson Troubadour And you can take him out of Arizona But you'll never take Arizona out of the man He's loves the Arizona land He digs the Arizona sand Yeah you can take him out of Arizona but you'll never take Arizona out of the man He's got an Arizona tan Give him an Arizona hand And he has a lot of songs that rhyme with O like DinerO, MexicO, AmericanO, BuffalO Just went I thought that he was done rhyming in O He went and wrote another and it's called ¡GeronimO! His name is Roger Clyne and lives among the cactus He's never on time and he doesn't like to practice He always leaves 'em wanting more He's the Tucson Troubadour His name is Roger Clyne and lives among the cactus He's never on time and he doesn't like to practice He sings about an open door He's the Tucson Troubadour He always leaves 'em wanting more He's the Tucson Troubadour Cha! Cha! Cha!

The Drifter 03:03
He is the drifter He left tomorrow behind For a life on the highway He's the traveling kind He once had a good love 'til cruel fate intervened So he rode toward the sunset To find a new dream The highways and byways Serve as his kin Truckstops and diners Are family to him Good days don't come easy Always more lows than highs But it's all that he has now So he stays on and rides And he rides slow and easy Hoping to find Someone to notice Someone to be kind And that high lonesome drifter Has nothing to lose 'cept an old lover's memory and his traveling blues
