Dallas


I lived in holy house but the Grand Hotel
Back streets of this old town I know so well
and I drunken no holy wine save Muscatel
And now my friend I got to go
You tell everyone I know
Sayin' goodbye

(chorus)

Bye bye Dallas
I can't stay
Should've been at the Palace
Yesterday
Bye bye Dallas
Got to go
And I remember when they told me so

Right now I'm wonderin' where the good times are gone
All the things I never loved
And they're what's mine
A hot city and an empty park
Can make a man think on
And I been living low so long
I gotta get back where I belong

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

(Alt chorus)

Bye bye Dallas
I can't stay
Should've been at the Palace
Yesterday
Hey no father
It's understood
Livin' low undercover
I'm/You're no good
Bye bye Dallas

Sail The Waterway


My old man
He been around the world
And he tells me everything
He told me how to tie a sailor's knot
And made me how to sing
And though my man and I got it together
He still knows what to do

He say come on and sail the waterway
It feels so good on you
Come on and sail the waterway
It feels so good on you

You can tell me you're a man of means
And I wouldn't believe it's true
Today I seen you selling door to door
And I know it makes you blue
Now you're bettin' your dollar on the wind and rain
When you put your money down

I say come on and sail the waterway
and turn your head around
come on and sail the waterway
and turn your head around

You know the tide is high
And the westward wind won't quit ya
And you know what you got to do
Cause the time is right
And the tide will wait for you
Well if you're tired of the race and the runners
And the things they make you do

I say come on and sail the waterway
come on and sail the waterway
come on and sail the waterway
It feels so good on you

You know the tide is high
And the westward wind won't quit ya
Well you know what you got to do
Cause the time is right
And the tide will wait for you

Come on sail the waterway with me darling
The tide is high
Well you know what you got to do
Cause the time is right
And the tide will wait for you

FM (No Static At All)

Bury of the bottle, Mamma, it's grape fruit wine.
Kick off your high heel sneakers, it's party time
The girls don't seem to care what's on
As long as it plays till dawn
Nothin' but blues and Elvis
And somebody else's favorite song

Give her some funked up music she treats you nice
Feed her some hungry reggae she'll love you twice
The girls don't seem to care tonight
As long as the mood is right

No static at all
[No static at all]
No static at all
FM, no static at all

[solo]


Give her some funked up music she treats you nice
Feed her some hungry reggae she'll love you twice
The girls don't seem to care tonight
As long as the mood is right

No static at all
FM, no static at all
