Stray Dog

Written By: John Cantrell


I went out on the street this morning, and walked around my yard
I saw a little dog on the corner, and man that dog looked pretty hard
As I got closer to him, I could see the fear in his eye
I said little stray dog your an afraid dog, and he said that's no lie
You see life is what I've been through, and I can give you some advise, ohhh

Don't try this alone in no alley
Don't try this alone on the street, ohhh
Don't try this alone in no alley, ahhh
Don't try this alone

You see I was in a hurry, rushed out the door toward life
Charged straight ahead for something, wouldn't turn my head left or right
I reached the top of the mountain, gazed out to the other side
And there was the road below me, the same as the one I ride
ran so hard to get here, didn't even think twice, ohhhhhh

Don't hold me back, no no
Don't hold me back too long, ohhh
Don't hold me back too long, ahhh
Don't hold me back

most of my wounds were self inflicted, except the ones on my back
Didn't see those coming, Didn't see the attack
Too busy with my journey, too busy to look around me
Too busy to look in the mirror, the man in there I didn't see
Stole most of my time on this earth, ended up with a bitter slice, ahhhh

Its just yourself you got to get used to
Its just yourself you got to know
Its just yourself you got to get used to
its just yourself you got to know, ohhhh

Don't try this alone in no alley
Don't try this alone on the street, ohhh
Don't try this alone in no alley, ahhh
Don't try this alone

Don't hold me back, no no
Don't hold me back too long, ohhh
Don't hold me back too long, ahhh
Don't hold me back

The Throne

Written By: John D. Cantrell

Sitting on the throne, cut off and alone

Gonna make me pay, for what I ate yesterday

red hot chilli and cheese, mama help me please

Straining and paining, no one to be blaiming

When it lets loose, might blow off the roof

Well the big dog, can't bark no more

He left his manhood, on the bathroom floor

Crying like a baby... pleading for mer..cy

Crying like a baby... pleading for mer..cy

spent yesterday, the mexican way

hot tamales with rice, tasted so nice

how was I to know, how it was gonna roll

temperture getting higger, backside on fire

I need relief, from this awful heat

Well the big dog, can't bark no more

He left his manhood, on the bathroom floor

Crying like a baby... pleading for mer..cy

Crying like a baby... pleading for mer..cy

It finally passed away, glad it didn't stay

Pain going down, getting out and around

saw a tex/mex barbeque, something I shouldn't do

went in anyway, tried to leave but stayed

So I'm back on the throne, cut off and alone

Well the big dog, can't bark no more

He left his manhood, on the bathroom floor

Crying like a baby... pleading for mer..cy

Crying like a baby... pleading for mer..cy

Fly

Written By: John D. Cantrell


Born on the wrong side of town,
Mama's gone and not around,
Dad was crippled and sister was slow,
He had nothing and nowhere to go,
But when he hit that grassy hill,
spread his arms and felt a thrill,

....And he could. Fly.... James Noble,
Fly....James noble
Run like the wind, face in a grin
shinning like the sun, Your the first one.
....who could, Fly...James Noble
Fly... James Noble

can't be caught when he starts going
Chest pushed out and eyes a-glowing
Magic pouring out of every step
No looking back and no regrets
This is what you were born to do
Nothing here will make you blue,

....When you can fly...James Noble,
Fly... James noble
Run like the wind. face in a grin
shinning like the sun. Your the first one.
....Who can, fly...James Noble, Fly.... James Noble

found the Joy of something you love
Its a gift from somewhere above
might have missed it on another day
if you had gone another way
time and space just came together
let you see that life's a pleasures,

....When you can fly...James Noble,
Fly... James noble
Run like the wind. face in a grin
shinning like the sun. Your the first one.
....Who can, fly...James Noble, Fly.... James Noble... (continue till fade)
