Water in the Well by Jeff Becker There are some things that you never do There are some things you never tell And there are some things that you only miss Like water from the well It’s ain’t nothing that I ever bought It not a thing that I ever thought Now I pray we don’t get caught Like water in the well And if that well it runs dry You know you’ll cry, oh cry baby cry We all want to live and love and trust And hope it all don’t turn to dust I try and try but can’t forget Though nothing’s happened, nothing yet And when it’s time to pay the debt I hope there’s water in the well And if that well it runs dry You know you’ll cry oh cry baby cry We all need to live & love & trust And hope it all don’t turn to dust.

Gratitude 02:47
Gratitude by Mad Dog Friedman I don’t have much. I do have hope, And friends aplenty. Sure not broke. Don’t matter much who you are. When a thankful heart, guides your star. Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude, gratitude, Can’t lose with gratitude! Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude, gratitude, In love with gratitude. I had it bad, not as bad as some, When the sun shines in, better times ‘ll come. Now I know who I really am, I greet each new day like a long-lost friend. Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude, gratitude, Can’t lose with gratitude!

The Great Unknown by Mark Kaczorowski They say life is just a game but I'll accept the blame for the many that I've lost along the way Well, you know I don't like change but I see people turning strange Words just aren't enough to convey Well, there is no guarantee in this sea of human beings but I'll take my chances in the end They say seeing is believing but believe me and you'll see words just aren't enough to comprehend If you don't see me tomorrow tell those preachers and the Joneses there's no discount on my soul If you don't see me tomorrow I’m sailing on into the great unknown Well, there is no guarantee in this sea of human beings but I'll take my chances in the end They say seeing is believing but believe me and you'll see words just aren't enough to comprehend If you don't see me tomorrow tell those preachers and the Joneses there's no discount on my soul If you don't see me tomorrow I’m sailing on into the great unknown If you don't see me tomorrow tell those preachers and the Joneses there's no discount on my soul If you don't see me tomorrow I’m sailing on into the great unknown To let my life unfold and to chase the mother-load I'm sailing on into the great unknown

Rocking Chair by Sean Bennight A daydream in my rocking chair A day when you're not near An echo from a phone call I hear your voice so clear I listen to your laughter The inflection of your smile Hold on to these details And cherish these thoughts for a while It seems to be the best way To keep you close to me I lean back in imagination It's your face I see A daydream in my rocking chair My front porch is scattered With dust and wooden trophies The things that really matter to me Old lights and empty canisters The piano's broken strings I call you angel, that's what you are Well, all except your wings It seems to be the best way To keep you close to me I lean back in imagination It's your face I see A daydream in my rocking chair I'm underneath a tree I sit and in a flash It all becomes a memory It was just another moment A glance and then a smile Hold on to these details And cherish these thoughts for a while It seems to be the best way To keep you close to me I lean back in imagination It's your face I see When I hold on to my baby girl Well, heaven and hell can wait I'll hold on to every ounce of your love In these daydreams while I'm away

Mojo Queen 07:03
Mojo Queen by Mad Dog Friedman I was walking down the street, who'd you think I see? All the people move away, as she walk up to me. With each step she take, yeah the ground it shook. Everybody talkin' 'bout their money, all the money she took. She look you in the eye, shake that monkey paw. She stick her papa with a pin just to see him fall. It take two eunuchs Lord keep her clean. Well one wrong word, yeah she get mean. She chew tin foil, drink gasoline, She chop off your arm just to steal your ring. Well she the Mojo Queen, hey a Mojo Queen, now hey a Mojo Queen, oh a Mojo Queen. She make her brew of eyes and tail. If that don't do it, she's got these pills. She make the young girl cry, wow the old men scream, When she talk with ghosts and read your dreams. She seduced me with red rooster wine, Yeah she wiggled those hips and made my hoodoo shine, Ow she sprouted warts inside my hand; She turned my monkey into a man. Well she's a Mojo Queen, yeah a Mojo Queen, yeah a Mojo Queen, yeah a Mojo Queen She's a Mojo, Mojo, Mojo, Mojo, Mojo Queen, a Mojo Queen, she a ?????????????????????? ye-ow.

Peace In Our World by Jenn Cleary Why can't there be Peace in our world? I hold out hope Deep down in my soul. Why focus on hatred When it only brings pain to us all? Can't we forgive and move on Before we free-fall? Why do we fight fire with fire, If it only creates infernos? Can't we find other ways And stop struggling with our foes? Why can't there be Peace in our world? I hold out hope Deep down in my soul, Deep down in my soul, Deep down in my soul.

Hear Me Crying by Mad Dog Friedman Hear me crying, "Why won’t you love me no more?" I’m just a crying, "Why won’t you love me no more?" I know I had you, I know I had you once before. Be lying to you baby, if I told you it couldn’t happen no more. I love you baby. Time will prove my love is true. You know now baby, I think you love me some too. How can drive me like a stranger from your door? Don’t you hear me crying, "Won’t you love me some more." I call you baby, I call you up on the phone. Don’t believe him baby, man who try and tell me you're not home. I knock now baby, two, now, three more times. I’m just standing in the rain, now baby, just standing in the rain, just standing in the rain and crying.

Pass My Hat 05:24
Pass My Hat by Mad Dog Friedman I’d pass my hat, but it’s all full of holes. Your loose change, baby, do me no good no more. Fry my soul in your nuclear confusion, And I’ll ride, ride your heat wave right out the door. Well the sea is rising and the storms a brewing, I’m gonna get my hat, Lord, get out of this town. Yeah the sky is burning and your home's just a melting. I’m gonna plant my dream in what’s left of your ground. I follow the prints my feet are making. Well I don’t know where I have been, but I’m going home. You may think I’m dreaming, baby, but I’m just dream walking. You may think I’m going, but I’m already gone.
