Lyrics

Lonsome Co.

Written By: Becknell/Eagle

Hold my hand/hold me back/hold my heart and wait for the attack
Be somethin’ steady somethin’ to hang on to
Moments of moments, sunrise to dusk
Thought of our death never encounters us
Feels so heavy to be home with ya’ll again.
Fallin’ from heights, death from above
It’s my human nature always fallin’ in love
Be my ground I know you won’t let me down

So here I come
With a bright light and stage
And you played a role from an olde and a timeless age
When love conquered all found in a man that is just like me
Still I push you away
But you only role on hold on in my
Lonesome Co.

Let’s meet where the wheels hit the road
Cause I swear the more the move the more that you grow.
We don’t count out off the miles we just count on the road
I’ll be the friction at your feet.
You’ll be the wheels glued to my street
Work together call that simple harmony

Here I come
I’ve got a smile upon my face
Rollin’ through town
With all my song my voiced space!
Words that I write they are as honest as I can be
Still I push you away, but you only roll on hold on in my
Roll on hold on in my
Roll on hold on in my
Lonesome Company

Pledge Allegiance

Written By: Eagle

I pledge allegiance towards the skyline
And crossin’ the bridge into heartland Kentucky
I pledge Allegiance to the Ohio River
The torrent of my youthful dream

Killing myself to live is no more
Born Again, Born Again
Killing myself to love has been so hard
Home Again, I’m Home again
So come on pretty city
I know you got it in you
Would you care to sing harmony?
Come on pretty city
The days and nights are ready
The river yearns for your company.

I pledge allegiance toward a main street
And troubadours, they talk up their storms
I pledge allegiance toward a Ludlow strip
Where I drink spiked coffee at my favorite café
I pledge my heart to the Arnolds Bar
May the Arnolds forever rest in peace.

Killing myself to live is no more
Born Again. Born Again.
Killing myself to love has been so hard
I’m home again, home again

So come on pretty city
I know you’ve got it in you
Raise raise your empty glasses to the skies
Come on pretty city
The days and nights are ready
Your load’s been heavy, but could ya tell me why?
Could you tell m why?

The river yearns for your company
The river yearns for your company
The river yearns for some peace and company!
Yes RIGHT!

Shiny Old Soul

Written By: Eagle

I want my heart to beat beat beat
Forever
Just like a child’s
I want my life to breathe breathe breathe
So live and let live
That’s what a wise man says
Live and let live
That’s what my father said

I love to dance with Suzy Lee
She likes it, the way I go dosie doe
She likes it, when I kiss her to bed

She loves to hum songs she don’t know
She likes it, when the earth moves slow
But she hates...hates that
Smoke I smoke

We are hawks
We are doves
We are hate
We are love
I’m an Indian
I stand proud
There are those who are born again
The shiny old souls
The young, the old.
Shiny… Shiny old soul!!!
