Lyrics

Travelin' Jones

Written By: Mike Alicke

You must forgive me- I'm a little bit of a child- I run with the wolves at the call of the wild (I'm a freedom child). These days I'm hangin' on a wing and a prayer- broke down to nothing-hell but I don't even care I'm movin' on.. And I can't hide this feelin' in my bones- there ain't no way to stop this travelin' jones.
Big wigs in Houston say they really dig my song- won't fly in Boston 'cause it runs a little long (it's all wrong)- I cry these tears then I edit them away-wouldn't be so bad if I saw one damn dime my way I'm moving on... I can't hide this feelin' in my bones- there ain't no way to stop this travelin' jones- no I can't hide what I feel inside- head me out to watch it all unfold- down some sweet open road...
Proud Oklahoma singin' for the rodeo- playing for the cowgirls all the sad songs I know- but I was thinkin' if you could slip away- meet me in Witchita before the break of day or I'm movin' on- movin' on...
I can't hide this feelin' in my bones...
this travelin' jones...

Don't Let A Good Thing Fall Behind

Written By: Mike Alicke

Upon this chosen path we pave
For every moment we can save
And all the distance to the final line
Don't let a good thing fall behind

Little sister don't you worry
Your broken heart will surely mend
Little brother don't you hurry-no no
You'll see it all before the end

And if the sky is dark around you
Constellations will arise
Lift your head and feast your eyes
Don't let a good thing fall behind

Isn't life a giant wheel?
The ride begins when you get on
Put the fire to your heel boys
Before your riding days are gone

Don't you let no cloud of thunder
Wash away your sunny day
Don't let your smile slip away, no
Don't let a good thing fall behind

Upon this chosen path we pave
For every moment we can save
For all the wonders in this grand design
Don't let a good thing fall behind....
