Lyrics

It's Alright

Written By: Marshall/Petrone

It’s Alright
Well it’s alright now baby it’s alright
( When you find yourself walkin - in the middle of a storm )
Yes it’s alright now baby it’s alright
( When life has left you lost and lonely - I will keep you warm )
Though the wind is blowin keep that river flowin now
And the leaves are shakin I just keep on makin love

Some days you’ll wake up and you’ll find yourself alone
Somebody’s leavin and your heart has turned to stone
But it’s alright - baby it’s alright

Though it’s cold outside baby it’s alright
( If you find yourself falling in the middle of a storm )
When your old you’ll find I’ll still be by your side
( When life has left you lost and lonely - I will keep you warm )
Though the wind is blowin keep that river flowin now
And the earth is quakin I just keep on makin love
Some days you’ll wake up and you’ll find yourself alone
But all you have to do is call me on the phone
So it’s alight - baby it’s alight
( Whistle Break )
Some days you’ll wake up and you’ll find yourself alone
Somebody’s leavin and your heart has turned to stone
But it’s alright
( In the middle of a storm )
baby it’s alright
( When you find yourself alone )
baby it’s alright
( Baby I will keep you warm )
Baby it’s alright

When I call Your Name

Written By: Marshall/Petrone

When I call your name

Gonna lay me down
Let the sun soak in
Gonna knock on your door
Gonna let me in

Gonna play my guitar
Till my fingers bleed
Gonna sing a song tonight
Gonna make you feel alright

When I call your name
You get me right back on my feet again

I was waiting for
What was waiting for me
It was right by my side
But I just could’nt see
Now I’m learning to laugh and I’m learning to sing
And all I gotta do is see the love in everything

When I call your name
You get me right back on my feet again
Hey, When I call you name
You get me right back on my feet again

When I call your name
You get me right back on my feet again
Hey, When I call you name
You get me right back on my feet again

Hooo Hooo Hooo

Two Kinds of People

Written By: Marshall/Petrone

TWO KINDS OF PEOPLE

I know some people lying in the street
I know some people who drive by and beep
Lord I only know two kinds of people
Lord I only know two kinds of people

I know some people who work hard every day
I know some people living on government pay
Lord I only know two kinds of people

Lord I only know two kinds of people

I know some rich folks and lord I know some poor
How can we compare their needs to indoor
Lord I only know two kinds of people

Lord I only know two kinds of people

Some people think for themselves and some people don’t
They got control of their lives through body mind and soul
Some people live through the spirit that others will deny
Some people lead and others follow till the day they die

I know some people who work hard every day
I know some people living on government pay
Lord I only know two kinds of people
I know some folks lord who are never satisfied
And I know some folks lord happy just being alive
Lord I only know two kinds of people

Lord I only know two kinds of people
Lord I only know two kinds of people
Lord I only know two kinds of people
Lord I only know two kinds of people

Spirits are Flying

Written By: Marshall/Petrone

SPIRITS ARE FLYING

Woke up on a bright sunday morning
in the Pennsylvania hills
Looking out at the lehgih river as time stood still
I did’nt know what I was looking for
I was caught up in a day dream
Like an arrow right through my heart
I found out what life means
Chorus:
Spirits are flying
from east to west
My soul is rolling through this wilderness

Camp fires burning hot
as the sound of nature blows through the trees
The cool night air puts a chill down my spine, puts my mind at ease
I sit back and think about my problems it all seems to disappear,
here comes that cool night air again whispering in my ear

Chorus:
Spirits are flying
from east to west
My soul is rolling through this wilderness

Can’t we figure any of it out
Are we living in a world, a world of self doubt
I just don’t wanna see the good things slip away

Chorus:
Spirits are flying
from east to west
My soul is rolling through this wilderness

Chorus:
Spirits are flying
from east to west
My soul is rolling through this wilderness

Revin' it Up

Written By: Marshall/Petrone

Revin it up

City folks tell me they get bored on a sunday afternoon
Then I tell em what a country boy like me does at high noon
I tell em I like to rev it up
I take my baby down to the state line
make some whoopee in the woods and drink some wine
Yeah I like to rev it, I like to rev it up
Call me Marlin Brando, call me James Dean
Call me what you want, I ain”t mean
I just like to rev it I just like to rev it up

Chorus:
I’m revin, I’m revin, I’m revin it up goin fifty five just aint enough
I like to rev it, I like to rev it up I’m revin, I’m revin, I’m revin it up
Driving to survive that ain’t enough I like to rev it, I like to rev it up

Metal on metal, steel on steel
Rubber to the pavement, let it peel
I like to rev it, I like to rev it up
I don’t like no diddily diddily do
I like whaling on the guitar how bout you
I like to rev it, I like to rev it up

Chorus:
I’m revin, I’m revin, I’m revin it up goin fifty five just aint enough
I like to rev it, I like to rev it up I’m revin, I’m revin, I’m revin it up
Driving to survive that ain’t enough I like to rev it, I like to rev it up

Bridge:
My motor is running hot
can you feel the thunder
I like revin it up

This is how I spend my spare time you know
Screaming horses down the highway I roll
Sunday afternoon man And I aint bored
My needle is buried man you know I got it floored

I roll my windows down and I turn my radio on
Wind blowin through my hair I’m singing my favorite song
I like to rev it, I like to rev it up

I’m rockin n rolling down the highway
I’m a fuel injected son of a gun in my stingray
I like to rev it, I like to rev it up

Chorus:
I’m revin, I’m revin, I’m revin it up goin fifty five just aint enough
I like to rev it, I like to rev it up I’m revin, I’m revin, I’m revin it up
Driving to survive that ain’t enough I like to rev it, I like to rev it up

Heartland

Written By: Marshall/Petrone

HEARTLAND

Sometimes we ask ourselves where do we come from
What's god reasons, what will be the outcome
They say we live in a land of opportunity
Well brother, it’s in our hands, the key to our destiny

Chorus:
Well those cool rivers running into the sea,
running free yeah in the Heartland
For you and for me it’s Gods hand touching down

There comes a time in everyone's life
when you got to put away your selfish pride
you got to look beyond the surface of eyes
and look deep down into the souls that cry

Chorus:
Well those cool rivers running into the sea,
running free yeah in the Heartland
For you and for me it’s Gods hand touching down

Bridge:
Beyond the horizon a dream awaits
From a higher calling a voice says
capture your dreams and just breath the day

Earth is a mother and the sun is a friend
The stars in the sky represent our dreams till the end
I believe in the love for the land and it’s beauty is heaven sent
Where will we be tomorrow, will our souls be content

Chorus:
Well those cool rivers running into the sea,
running free yeah in the Heartland
For you and for me it’s Gods hand touching down
