I was hanging with some buddies on a Saturday night When some guy starts talkin' tough and tries picking a fight I might have punched him in the nose if it was back in the day But I just shook his hand and bought his beer, it's better that way Some guy gave me the finger on the freeway today I think I might have cut him off, or somehow got in his way I might have run him off the road if it was back in the day But I just smiled and waved and let it go, it's better that way It's better that way So if you're in a situation and your feeling some frustration Let it go, let go 'cause you can't change what happens but you can change your reaction Don't you know "tranquilo." Well I just realized this song is not very long And if I really wanted I could go on and on But I think that I've said everything I wanted to say So I'll just keep it short and sweet, I think it's better that way

Marie 03:35
Four riders behind me Three bullets left Two hours 'til sunset Just one regret I went lusting for gold I found only lead Lo siento, siento, Marie Marie, ah, Marie Even in death my heart waits only for thee Marie, ah, Marie Mi corazon pertenece Ahora y siempre En vida o muerte Solo a ti Crying, she stood in her white Sunday dress The wide world awaits, I would ride to possess My own envy and greed I let lure me away When I knew in my heart with Marie I should stay Marie, ah, Marie Even in death my heart waits only for thee Marie, ah, Marie Mi corazon pertenece Ahor e siempre En vida o muerte Solo a ti

Call It Good 02:34
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

She's talking Spanish She's talking Spanish Can't understand it But I like it anyway She's talking Spanish She's talking Spanish Can't understand it Don't know what she's trying to say Her words they flow oh so effortlessly It's a thing a beauty I don't know what she is saying to me This Mexican cutie If she's asking "How are you?" I don't have a clue Cause I didn't study enough She's talking Spanish And I think that I'm in love

¡Amigos! 04:45
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

One weekend I did go To Puerto Peñasco It's down in Mexico Where I lay on the sand I met some locals And there was a man He had marijuana There in his hand There was a fiesta Yo bebo sangria Y dos cervezas Then dos more cervezas Two in each hand And then came tequila and a mariachi band Too much fiesta I took a siesta There on the sand Mi pantalones Mi pantalones Mi pantalones Donde esta?

Elizabeth 02:56
As I drive around the bend to that Pennsylvania borderline again I seem to find, my mind racing back to you Wishing you were by my side Just the two of us, nothing to hide We find that place That only you and I can find And how I need you God knows I need you Liz how I miss you and how I wish that you were here with me tonight Hey Elizabeth Let's run away So far away we'll leave it all behind Elizabeth let's run away And start a brand new day tonight You say they wouldn't understand and I know I didn't figure in their plan But say what you will Nothing can change the way we feel Like Romeo and Juliet Ours is a love that time will not forget It will live on Long after you and I are gone Hey Elizabeth Let's run away So far away we'll leave it all behind Elizabeth let's run away And start a brand new day tonight And how I need you God knows I need you Liz how I miss you and how I wish that you were here with me tonight Hey Elizabeth Let's run away So far away we'll leave it all behind Elizabeth let's run away And start a brand new day tonight

You're telling me that you would leave him If you could have a chance with me Well I hate to break it to ya Some things just aren't meant to be So you might hold on to what you have 'cause there's no chance for you and me I'm not trying to make you sad I'm just trying to make you see I can't love you like he can I hope that you can understand I want a woman not a man So I can't love you like he can Now you're telling me it's hard Well I just don't know what to say Except buddy, it ain't in the cards So you must turn and walk away Cause you're barking up the wrong tree That dog don't hunt for me Don't wanna see tears in your eyes But I love the ladies, not the guys So I can't love you like he can I hope that you can understand I want a woman not a man So I can't love you like he can I'm not trying to be rude It's not that I do not approve But long ago I did conclude I could never do a dude Stand behind your man Cause I can't love you like he can

Whiskey Rain 02:20
Well here I am once again In this darkness on my own And I don't have anybody show me the light I am alone Just one more glass to drown this sorrow Then it's time for me to go I won't be back here tomorrow Where I'm headed, Lord only knows I've been drivin' down this dark stretch of highway for as long as I can recall It don't matter if they don't approve of my way that won't change things at all Whiskey rain, whiskey rain Come down on me and wash away this pain Whiskey rain don't you go away I need you to stay Another night in this bar room that don't see the light of day and I've been guided by the full moon but I never do find my way So one more glass could drown this sorrow Then it's time for me to go I won't be back here tomorrow Where I'm headed, Lord only knows I've been drivin' down this dark stretch of highway for as long as I can recall and don't matter if they don't approve of my way That won't change me at all

Well there's a road that I know that can get you up to heaven for a day Where you just might see an eagle fly or watch the bighorn play Or you can take a trail that'll lead you to the river's edge Where you can listen to the rollin' waters carry all your troubles away On I-70 Westbound, I-70 Westbound We'll get away for a little while on I-70 Westbound There's nothing that can quite compare to the Colorado sun When you're high in the Rocky Mountains and away from everyone And you know the Mile High city always will be home to me But for those times when I gotta get away there's a place I'll be On I-70 Westbound, I-70 Westbound We'll get away for a little while on I-70 Westbound Well I just can't wait to get next to a fire tonight Where I can hold my baby in my arms until morning light And when we wake up we can take a long walk and see what we can find Come on let's pack it up, hit the road, it's time to leave the city behind

There's a long stretch of road Out in front of me tonight I'm burning midnight oil but I'm still running strong And I've been doing 90 but it ain't fast enough Because I've been away from home too long But I'm driving back to Denver Been driving all night long I'm missing home that's where I need to be Driving back to Denver And I can't wait too see those Mile High city lights shine for me Got a flat in Carolina Broke down in Arkansas Drove to fast through Oklahoma Had a little trouble with the law Found myself right in the middle of a bar room brawl in Kansas City It's plain to see that life for me out on the road ain't pretty

about

Recorded live solo on Wednesday, July 22, 2015 at the Lost Highway Brewing Company in Denver, Colorado. There are no overdubs. All guitar and vocal parts were performed live via looping. All clams/mistakes, off-time loops, and pitchy vocals are left in their pure imperfect state. In other words, this is raw as shit.
Thank you to all my amigos who were there!
