18 Wheels (for Arlene Boumel) 10/13/11 - FtLd Eighteen Wheels Will never do You can keep you farrieries And your lamborghinies too This hard land Oh lord I do not know It’s so damned cold here I have to find my coat And I’m out here on the highway But I’m looking for a breeze Oh lord won’t you Please return this Sailor to the sea Rolling hillsides never Move like the waves But when I stand still Can you feel me sway And this dirt That stands between my toes Is not as solid As the decks when I’m below So I’m out here on the highway But I’m looking for a breeze Oh lord won’t you Please return this Sailor to the sea verse: D - Em(long) - Bm - G(long) (all 4x) chorus: Em(long) - G(long) Bm - G(long) Em(long) - G(long) D(trill 12) - A7+23 - A7 copyright 2013 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

Beautiful Mess 07/16/11 - FtLd Never saw the sign posts I was moving too fast too far Never read the warnings That was never in my cards Couldn’t see the reasons Never wondered why I was flying through my life As time was flying by But don’t forget the seasons And don’t forget that bell And don’t forget to ring it When you need someone to tell All of the secrets That weigh (lay) upon your chest When you finally realize it's all It’s all... a beautiful mess No one knows the reasons No one is to blame Why things turned out the way they have I never could explain So dance a little dance with me As we pass away the time Cause tomorrow there’ll be someone else Waiting here in line But don’t forget the seasons.... And I have come to love you In each and every way Even though I cannot be with you That’s just no how it is But I still take comfort In your memory Cause when I fly away in dreams You’re waiting there for me But don’t forget the seasons.... intro: Am7 - Ef3(G) }all 3x Ef1(F) - 52 verse: A7f3(C7) - Am7f7(Em7long) Ef1(F) - Am7 - E7f3(G7) chorus: Ef1(F) - 17.55.63(Glong) Am7f7(Em7long) - Am7 Ef1(F) - Ef3(G) Am7 - Am7f7(Em7long) Ef1(F) - E7f3(G7) copyright 2013 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

Light Up The Moon 03/23/12 - FtLd All the jackasses Running for the shed All the middle men Spinning on their heads And all the elephants They fell down dead Cause they said it was too soon All the dixie daughters Dancing in the street All the daisy dukes Champing at the bit But who’s gonna tell you That the shoe fit When you’re spinning round the room And there’s a time for the engine And a time for the sail A time for the hammer And the time for the nail But you can’t come back If you don’t know how to bail And you’re living in a typhoon And there’s a reason to stay And a reason to go A reason to go fast And a reason to go slow But you better know when To say hell no Or you’re gonna light up the moon Light up the moon And Paul went right And John went left When the magic in the mystery Was put to the test While one flew over The cuckoo’s nest For breaking all the rules And the lion in winter Fell drunk down in the lane When the president’s men All went insane As the titanic sank While the fat lady sang You better turn round you fools And there’s a time for the engine.... (break) And the river’s in the rock And the rock is in the roll And they’re rolling out the rockets For the rocket men to go And they’re going so fast That no one knows If they’re coming back again And they’re digging down the line And they’re digging up the mines And they’re taking down the land To take what they can find But they ain’t leaving Nothing good behind So we better keep moving And there’s a time for the engine....

Little Boy Blues 01/27/11 - FtLd My daddy-o he loves me so And his little girl know it’s so Because he never does The things he says he’ll do He shouts, he hits and he roars And tells my mamma she’s a whore But he does it all Just to help me know That although he sure likes to yell And makes our lives a living hell Deep down inside He’s always smiling at me Cause everything he does by day Is to make sure that we can stay Together and be happy All the time And every night he comes around To play the games that make no sound That no one else Knows we ever do Oh my daddy-o he loves me so And his little girl knows it’s so Because he never does The things he says he’ll do Now other children like to play Outside by the light of day But I am not Allowed to leave our home Though my mother shouts that I should My daddy vows I never will Until the day That I am fully grown Cause the world is fully run by fools Who are so pitiful and cruel They will hurt you in Each and every way And though deep down I wish I could My daddy yells I never should Play with those who lie And who betray But at night when we’re all alone My daddy makes me cry and moan And promise that I’ll do everything he says Oh my daddy-o he loves me so And his little girl knows it’s so Because he never does The things he likes to say And if others should ever ask I just turn and give them my back To prying eyes that have No right or place Our lives they are our own And I promised and I swore That I’d do anything My loving daddy said So no one should ever know What goes on in our home sweet home Cause they’re too dumb And full of jealousy Yet somehow word gets around And in the end it all comes down To what it is That you want to believe But I’ll never let them see How my daddy played with me And the places where I bruised And where I bleed Oh my daddy-o he loves me so And his little girl knows it’s so Because of all the things He said and did to me Yet now I am all alone Cause bad men came to our home And took my daddy off In tears and shame And although it could be hard I never wanted us to part Cause love is always Full of hurt and pain Now they say I’ll never see My daddy smiling down on me To use me And abuse my like a toy But there’s still just one mystery That somehow got away from me And I need to know To share my daddy’s joy If he said in all the world That I’m his only little girl Why does everyone else say I’m a little boy Oh my daddy-o he loves me so And I know that I’ll see him no more Cause of what my daddy really did to me What was it that he wanted me to be What happens next when I am...

Why Do I 04:33
Why Do I 07/09/12 - FtLd The dreams I am dreaming Are the ones I dreamed oh so long ago And they call out to me of an untold story And of everything I still need to know And the sea comes to me slowly And the desert leaves me far behind But I want to find the place where I am only Trying not to try Why do I Why do I It seems things have come to only Be the things we thought that they would always be But that means that I have been only Seeing things in ways that only I can see And the sea comes to me slowly.... And all of these feelings that I’m holding Like the leaves that never fall down in the snow Have become reminders of the morning When I wake to find how far I’ve got to go And the sea comes to me slowly.... verse: 38.46.57 - 25.36.46 36.46.54 - 29.39.49 (all 2x) chorus: 29.39.49 - 25.35.45 38.46.57 - 25.36.46 36.46.54 - 34.44.52 Am7 25.34.45.53 27.36.47 end: 29.39.49 copyright 2013 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.
