Track Name: Tired Of Tryin'
TIRED OF TRYIN’

I’ve been waiting
And hoping for a change
I’ve been holding on
Sure there’d come a better day

And I’m so tired . . .
I’m so tired . . .
I’m so tired . . .

Tired of tryin’ . . . to make ends meet
Tired of tryin’ . . . to make myself believe
Tired of tryin’ . . . to keep my head up high
I can’t find much reason to live . . .
and I’m tired of tryin’

I’m a loser
I’ve gone and lost my way
I’m in trouble
It's my fault and I’m ashamed

And I’m so tired . . .
I’m so tired . . .
I’m so tired . . .

Tired of tryin’ . . . to make ends meet
Tired of tryin’ . . . to make myself believe
Tired of tryin’ . . . to keep my head up high
I can’t find much reason to live . . .
and I’m tired of tryin’

BABY, PLEASE DON'T GO

Baby, baby, I can't believe you're leavin' me now
(I said) baby, baby, I can't believe you're leavin' me now
I'll get down on my knees
And take to beggin' you please stay 'round

My heart, my heart, my heart belongs to only you

So put your things away
(And) don't let me hear you say we're through

Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go

Baby, please, please, please

My world, my world, my whole world spins around you
My world, my world , my whole world spins around you

And take to beggin' you please stay 'round

Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't leave
Baby, please, please, please

Track Name: Flowers On Your Grave
FLOWERS ON YOUR GRAVE

I've been tryin' to tell you, better watch your wicked ways
Keep doin' what you're doin', and count your days
Now you don't have to listen, I know you've heard it all before
So all I'm gonna say, is I'll put flowers on your grave

I've grown tired of watiing for your attitude to change
Sometimes I thought you'd grown up, but no, you're just the same
I guess you just won't listen, you think you've heaerd it all before
So all I'm gonna say, is I'll put flowers on your grave

I'll put flowers on your grave
And there'll be teardrops in my eyes
I'll be so sad when you pass away
But I won't be surprised

You don't seem to worry, you just take another pill
Smoke, snort, sniff or drink, whatever gets the thrill
Now you don't have to listen, I know you think I'm just no fun
But I have to wonder still, just how much pain you plan to kill

If you can't see to stop it, at least just stop until
You get yourself a lawyer, and write yourself a will
Now you don't have to listen, I know you think I'm just no fun
but I have to wonder still, just how much pain you plan to kill

I'll put flowers on your grave
And there'll be teardrops in my eyes
I'll be so sad when you pass away
But I won't be surprised

I'll put flowers on your grave
And there'll be teardrops in my eyes
I'll be so sad
But I won't be surprised

Track Name: Ain't Got No
AIN'T GOT NO

Ain't got no quarter
Ain't got no quarter to call my friend
Ain't got no quarter
Ain't got no quarter to call my friend

I spent all my money
Now I ain't got nothin' left to spend

Ain't got no friend
Ain't got no friend to take me home
Ain't got no friend
Ain't got no friend to take me home

So when I'm ready to be goin'
I'll be goin' all alone

Ain't got no home
Ain't got no home anyway
Ain't got no home
Ain't got no home anyway

Everybody's leavin'
But I think I'm gonna stay

Ain't got no teardrops
Ain't got no teardrops left to cry
Ain't got no teardrops
Ain't got no teardrops left to cry

Ain't got no joy in livin'
But I ain't got no reason to die

Track Name: Woman . . . Hey, Woman
WOMAN . . . HEY, WOMAN

Woman . . . hey, woman . . .
Why do you have to leave?
Woman . . . hey, woman . . .
Why do you have to leave?
Mark my words they’ll come a day
You’ll want to come back to me

I might be a poor man
Might be a poor man now
I might be a poor man
Might be a poor man now
But if money changes everything
I’ll make it rich somehow

They say that money can’t buy love
I wouldn’t know ‘bout that
But when you’re strugglin’ and you ain’t got enough
Romance is over in a flash

Woman . . . hey, woman . . .
I know your love’s for sale
Woman . . . hey, woman . . .
I know your love’s for sale
You say you need to feel ‘secure’
And I ain’t been doin’ so well . . .

They say that money can’t buy love
I wouldn’t know ‘bout that
But when you’re strugglin’ and you ain’t got enough
Romance is over in a flash

Woman . . . hey, woman . . .
Woman . . . hey, woman . . .

Track Name: I Gotta Go (It's Over)
I GOTTA GO (IT’S OVER)

I’ll keep my distance
You keep the home
Keep almost everything
But I gotta go
I gotta go
It’s just time to leave
Babe I’m sorry, but sometimes you just know . . .
and I gotta go

Don’t hate me, Honey
You know I tried
Don’t say things you’ll regret
Just say good-bye
Say good-bye
Blame it all on me
Nothin’ you could say would change my mind . . .
So just say good-bye

It’s over . . .
It’s over . . .

I’ll keep my distance
You keep the home
Keep almost everything
But I gotta go
I gotta go
It’s just time to leave
Babe I’m sorry, but sometimes you just know . . .
and I gotta go

It’s over . . .
It’s over . . .

Don’t want to see another day

Go away sunshine . . . sunshine go away . . .
Go away sunshine . . . sunshine go away . . .
I don’t want to see . . .
Don’t want to see another day

Track Name: Letting Go
LETTING GO

I don't know how to say good-bye
So I'll wait and I'll try to hide
Hide the feeling of nothing left
Of faded romance and emptiness

Love, I'm trying to treat you right
But making love's just an alibi
I hold you close, but I'm letting go
And trying hard not to let it show

But I can't go on forever pretending
And you deserve something real
Life is full of unhappy endings
I can't just change how I feel

I don't know how to set you free
The usual words don't sound right to me
You deserve more that just a line
More than words I could hide behind

Love, I'm trying to treat you right
But making love's just an alibi
I hold you close, but I'm letting go
And trying hard not to let it show

Track Name: If I Didn't Love You
IF I DIDN'T LOVE YOU

If I didn't love you would I be here now?
If I didn't love you would I be here now?
I made you cry
And I'm ashamed
But if I didn't love you
Why did I stay?

If I didn't love you I wouldn't care
If I didn't love you I wouldn't care
You think I'm leaving
But you're wrong
If I didn't love you
I'd be long gone

I hear your friends 'been talkin'
Tellin' you to leave
I thought this was something
Between you and me

If you didn't love me, like I love you
If you didn't love me, like I love you
You'd never try
to work this out
If you didn't love me
You wouldn't be here now

If I didn't love you . . .
If I didn't love you . . .
I made you cry
And I'm ashamed
But if I didn't love you
Why did I stay?

Track Name: The Rest Of My Life
THE REST OF MY LIFE

I got a woman makin' me crazy
I got a woman just ain't right
I fell in love, she didn't make me (But I)
Don't wanna pay for the rest of my life

I took a walk in the tall grass of romance
Came face to face with a rattlesnake
Still, I closed my eyes and started to slow dance
But I got bit when I tripped by mistake

One wrong word and she's ready to strike
I say I'm sorry, 'cause I don't wanna fight
Still she screams, she's right and I'm wrong
- Hell forever's gonna be too long

I got a woman makin' me crazy
I got a woman just ain't right
I fell in love, she didn't make me (But I)
Don't wanna pay for the rest of my life

Not gonna pay for the rest of my life

Track Name: Last Parade
LAST PARADE

I see the cars roll slowly by
And it's clear from their headlights
There are saddened souls inside
Tryin' to tell their friend good-bye

They'll follow to his resting place
And see him lowered in his grave
Life has an end, and it's a shame
But this will be his last parade

My day will come, I'm in no rush
But the sun will set, and when it does
Wish I could hear the ones I love
Remembering the man I was

They'll follow to my resting place
To see me lowered in my grave
Life has an end, I'm not afraid
I'll go in style my last parade
