Think Of You 03:55
Ragged waves roll in and crash along the banks of Lake Ontario The autumn leaves are shaking in the wind against the white October glow Soon the snow will fall across this land And June is just a vision we once had I see the sunshine, just like headlights in the pines Oh I, this time of year I always think of you I think of you Oh I, this time of year I always think of you I think of you I'll always think of you Lit up like the dashboard light I'm burning bright with you And if this Cadillac don't make it there tonight, we'll be alright I know it's true Through the snow, past the silos and the barns Back to the place where I was born We pull onto the drive, see the headlights in the pines Oh I, this time of year I always think of you I think of you Oh I, this time of year I always think of you I think of you I'll always think of you Wheels roll up along the dirt road, through the window I see the moon shining down into field, across the tree line Where we'd pretend we were soldiers and we'd never Leave one of our own behind Oh I, this time of year I always think of you I think of you Oh I, this time of year I always think of you I think of you I'll always think of you

The Brave 04:20
Hey kid, I hear you howl I know your name, I knew it well Like the back of my hand Or the books on my shelf I know the way you walk Your beautiful hell On and on There is fire in your heart And you know no matter how hard they rain It ain't ever going out It ain't ever going out ‘Cause I've seen some things And now this kid is growing up And he's calling in the brave He was singing on and on Young hearts, they were born to break And I know that the day that my father left Was the day it all changed But I'm rolling up my sleeves Yeah I'm trying to stay tough I've been calling in the brave Just like he did the day That he came back for us When he was singing on and on He was singing on and on

Trains 03:57
Darlin’ you know what I like? I like them trains best in the morning light When the trees begin to glow from black to gold I like that old steel singing Bring me home again And darlin’ you know what I love? I love that fire in your eyes The long forgotten skies ‘Cause baby we were born to run And just like them trains Steel in the wind Chasing the sun through the cold mountain The long, long skies Carry me home Alongside the river where the black water runs And just like them trains And darlin’ you know what I want? I want you to keep that radio light on And wait for morning to come, if it never comes I'll keep holding on, and you keep holding on We’ll keep holding on And just like them trains Steel in the wind Chasing the sun through the cold mountain The long, long skies Carry me home Alongside the river where the black water runs And just like them trains And just like them trains Steel in the wind Down through the pines, where the crows fly in And just like them trains Just like them trains

So take me back to, so take me back to find To find where I followed you, oh I followed you on down Oh I followed you And then I followed the sound And then I followed the sound through the night I followed the sound of the crashing tide I followed it down where the ocean lies to wait for you So take me back to, so take me back to find To find where I promised you, oh I promised that I'd keep Oh I will keep Your secret safe with me Then I followed the sound through the night Followed the sound of the crashing tide Followed it down where the ocean lies to wait for you I was searching for you Oh California take my hand Because then I followed the sound through the night I followed the sound of the crashing tide I followed it down where the ocean lies to wait for you
5.
I told you baby, don’t you wait around for me ‘Cause I've been waitin 'round here way too long And now the waitin's done I'm gonna be free I told you baby, I'm gonna get lost this time ‘Cause if you can't get lost, you can't come back around Just to say you made it out alive But I'll come back for you someday You haven't seen the last of this face I will come back when I can say “I can hold my own” I can hold my own I told you baby, babe you’ve got to hold on tight ‘Cause if you’re not hangin’ on, then you’re hangin’ all wrong And you know that that ain't right I told you baby, blue just ain't your style ‘Cause you’re about as blue as Detroit city The ghost of motown's in your smile But I'll come back for you someday You haven't seen the last of this face I will come back when I can say “I can hold my own” I can hold my own But I'll come back for you someday You haven't seen the last of this face I will come back when I can say “I can hold my own” But, I'll come back for you someday You haven't seen the last of this face I will come back When I can hold my own

Freightliner 06:12
Where no one can find me There below the trees With the mountains high above me Standing in the breeze And there ain’t no one to tell me, tell me how to live My sweet brother Do you still hear the thunder way out on the plain? I'm so scared that I've lost my way Oh Freightliner, how your wheels roll Time is money and the night is cold When the night is cold as the coming rain Freightliner Freightliner I'm a long haul rider Oh I ride the road Carrying my angel everywhere I go Sometimes we go down where the blackbirds They gather in the tall grass and sing My sweet brother Tell me, do you remember those things When the old road is calling your name? Oh Freightliner, how your wheels roll Time is money and the night is cold When the night is cold as the coming rain Freightliner Freightliner
