Dead in the Tracks

Written By: Erik G Swanson

DEAD IN THE TRACKS
She called from a phone in the lobby of the station
To say goodbye to all our dreams and aspirations
I tried to stop her but nothing I could say
Would keep her in town another day
So with nothing to lose and everything to gain
I had to intercept that speeding train
So here I am, standing in the tracks
The whistle blows, there ain’t no turning back

I’m staring down a thousand tons of steel
Prayin’ that the brakeman puts the brake to the wheel
’Cause if she don’t stop now, there’s no turning back
I’ll be lying dead here in the tracks

Now you might think I’m crazy, that I have gone insane
But a desperate man will do desperate things
So here I am, my life is on the line And rail by rail I’m running out of time

I’m staring down a thousand tons of steel
Prayin’ that the brakeman puts the brake to the wheel
’Cause if she don’t stop now, there’s no turning back
I’ll be lying dead here in the tracks

Now I can hear the whistle,
I can smell the steam As the engineer waves his arms at me I can hear the rails sing
And I’ll be dreaming of love that will never be
When she leaves this town and rolls right over me

I’m staring down a thousand tons of steel
Prayin’ that the brakeman puts the brake to the wheel
’Cause if she don’t stop now, there’s no turning back
I’ll be lying dead here in the tracks

Hillbilly Rock

Written By: Erik G Swanson

Hillbilly rock, hillbilly roll
Hillbilly heart beating down in my soul
I hear the beat and I gotta go Hillbilly rock, hillbilly roll
Lord that band sounds good tonight
That Louisiana Cajun moon is burning bright
A little bit of that do-si-do
A little kiss from Miss so ‘n so
I’m starting to think things might turn out right

There’s too much love, too many things to do
To sit at home alone feeling sad and blue
There’s rules to break and girls to hold
The food is hot and the beer is cold I’m starting to think I might be over you

Just look at me standing on my own two feet
Dancing along to the sound of that Cajun beat
When I start, you can’t hold me back
I’ve got two left feet on the right track
Tonight, the heartache can’t compete
