4 People Alive

4 People Alive

By: Brian Francis Baudoin

I'v been up and down this highway , 15 years I'v tryed
4years off the shelf I shuffeled to survive
A blues mans road baby is my 9 to 5
I'm playing smokey juke joint bars baby
just to keep 4 people alive

This ain't no old time story,From highway 61
I'm just a cajun boy trying to have some fun
so come along baby I'll have you back before the sun
It's 5Am momma your with blues man on the run
Go sun yea

I'v been up and down this highway 13 years I'v cryed
4 years by myself yea I shuffeled to survive
Your telling me what to do
but for that your not qualified
I'm playing smokey juke joint bars baby
just to keep 4 people alive

This ain't no old time story from Highway 61
I'm just a coonass boy south of I-10 sun
I travel a winding road where six string pickers hussle to survive
I'm playing smokey juke joint bars baby till the day I die...

Run Away Train

Written By: Brian Francis Baudoin

Run Away Train
By : Brian Francis Baudoin

I make my living picking guitar strings
Writing songs about feelings that change
well this tip jars empty tell me who’s too blame
Why I couldn’t buy my babies shoes this spring

Give me a ticket to a run away train
Strait to a place where we can’t feel the pain

I’m gonna write me letter to a big shot star
Said where I’m from they don’t care who you are
The crowds are little in these little bars
This paper I’m chasing won’t get me real far

So give me a ticket to a run away train
Strait to a place where we can’t feel no pain

Theirs a place I run to when its poring pain
You can come along with me when I pick and sing

So here’s your ticket to my run away train
This is a place where music heals the strain

I make my living picking guitar strings
Writing songs about feelings that change
And this tip jars empty but that’s not why I came
I came to take you on a journey on my run away train

Another Sky

Written By: Brian Francis Baudoin

Another Sky
By: Brian Francis Baudoin

Carry me to another sky where time stands still
Where age can’t find me and I can’t hide
And live just to live
And there is no money their
To take all my time

Move me far move me far away
Where time stands still
Theirs no routine and schedule to keep
And I can just chill
There is no drama their fighting my mind

Fly on free bird fly its time for me to find another sky
Drift on as far as I can see
Find a better place for me

And there is no sickness their
To kill me this time

Carry me to another sky where time stands still
Where age can’t find me and I can hide
And live just to live

Fly on free bird fly its time for you
To find another sky
Drift on as far as I can see
Find another place for me

Confused

Written By: Brian Francis Baudoin

Confused
By: Brian Francis Baudoin

I can’t stop even though I’m tired
Still worried about the next weeks miles
Comes real soon
I got this funny feeling in my chest
Thinking what the hell do I do next
I’m confused

It comes late at night when I close my eyes
And it’s a feeling I can’t deny
I don’t won’t to be here
I’m sick and tired
I’m a loser that’s my crime
I’m just a loser that’s my crime

Still with me when I step out of bed
And when I bow my head to brake my bread
I feel used
I feel it with me when I walk out side
Thoughts that run through my mind
I’m confused

It comes late at night when I close my eyes
And it’s a feeling I can’t deny
I don’t won’t to be here I’m sick and tried
I’m a loser that’s my crime
Just a loser that’s my crime

I can’t stop even though I’m tired
Still worried about the next weeks miles
Comes real soon
I got this funny feeling in my chest
Thinking what the hell do I do next
I’m confused

It comes late at night when I close my eyes
And it’s a feeling I can’t deny

I’m still tried of being here I don’t know why
To many lives depend on mine
Should I give up are keep trying

Which Way Is South

Which Way Is South

By: Brian Francis Baudoin

Up and down this road sing the same old song
Carry the same old heavy load
Everything stay’s the same but the faces
They come and they go
I’m a picker from a foreign land
I speak a language that you don’t understand
Even I don’t even understand

I ‘v been looking at the wrong way out
Mister can you tell me which way is south

I’m going to New Orleans for the maidi gras
It the best poor party I ‘v ever saw
Just south of I-10 ‘s where I lay my head
Down in Lafayette Pan Mie you corn Bread

I’ v been looking at the wrong way out
Mister can you tell me
Which way is south
Oh south of I-10

Hot gumbo on a cold winter night
The smell of crawfish and a coonass fight
You a bi tie you right

I’ve been looking at the wrong way out
Mister can you tell me which way is south
South of I-10

And if I get real tired I can lay my head
Down in tiger land they keep me drunk and feed

I’v been looking at the wrong way out
Mister can you tell me
Which way is south oh south of I-10

Born

Born
By: Brian Francis Baudoin

Brake me open on a path that is my own
This worlds uncertain so I travel it alone
Yea we been dying sense the day that we’ve born
You can’t lose here just try until your gone
Try until your gone

I’m a rambler I got feet down in the ground
I’m a sampler I sample good times going down
A searchers treasure is the one that can’t be found

You know time keeps rolling
Till the ramblers life is gone
Forgets what they told him
Because it wasn’t in a song

He started living on the day he sang his song
It brought him far away
He’s got to find his way back home

Yea I’m a rambler I got my feet down in the ground
Yea I’m a sampler I sample good times going down
A searchers treasure is the one that can’t be found

Yea I’m a rambler I got my feet down in the ground
Yea I’m a sampler I sample good times going down
A searchers treasure is the one that can’t be found

Now he’s tried of rambling and he wants to settle down
He found a women and their love was heaven bound
But the years keep rolling and he learned how people change
The years where golden but its time to ramble once again

I’m a rambler I got my feet down on the ground
Yea I’m a sampler I sample good times going down
A searchers treasure is the one that can’t be found

Break me open on a path that is my own
This roads uncertain so I travel it alone

Life

Written By: Brian Francis Baudoin

Life
By: Brian Francis Baudoin

Sometimes life is hard or so it seems
And we all make mistakes were just human beings
Some people turn to God and others to Jim Beam
We’re all different but where all the same
We’re all different but where all the same

I’ve seen your face before in my dreams
And I prayed for God to give me my queen
And I’d like to take the time to thank him for my dream
Jesus loves us he gave me everything
She is the loveliest thing I’ve ever seen
She is the loveliest thing I’ve ever seen

A wish upon a star late one night
There’s something in my life that just ain’t right
Not enough money so we argue fuss and fight
I just got to take the time to make things right
I’ve got to take the time to make things right
I’ve got to take the time to make things right

Sometimes life is hard that’s the way it’s meant to be
The stronger the wind the stronger the tree
But sometimes bad weather tries to knock me down
Theres storm clouds in your life but if you look their all around
And we all have choice to laugh or frown
We all have a choice to laugh or frown
