Track Name: White Line Fever
Got off the plane, it was an awful flight
I didn't get a lick of sleep last night
All I thought about was coming on home to you
I know you think love is just a game
But acting like that will drive a man insane
I'm asking you woman, whaddya want me to do...

White lines: gonna kill myself
I don't give a damn about anyone else
White lines: what'd you go and do that for?
You been running round town while I been gone
White Lines: are killing me.
Shoot out the lights and bury me...

Didn't have a thing worth living for
I been down for a year up in Baltimore
I'm asking you honey, when you coming home to me?
I need to know when you'll be home
Cuz I can't spend another night or week alone
Asking you woman, whaddya want me to be...

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Leaving New York City
Went down to the Mason/Dixon
And drank half a bottle of Jack
Hey hey hey
Looks like I'm leaving New York City
I don't know when I'm coming back
Hey hey hey

Maybe I'll head to California
And live in the Hollywood Hills
Maybe I'll grab my old guitar
And head down to Nashville
Out on that lonely road
I don't know when or where...I'll see you out there...

Fell asleep in Penn Station
I was waiting on the midnight train
Hey hey hey
Officer, I'll move right along
I was just trying to stop the pain
Hey hey hey

Maybe I'll head down to Virginia
Think about it all a while
Maybe I'll head up to Chicago
I love that Magnificent Mile
Out on that lonely road
I don't know when or where...I'll see you out there...

We're all just prisoners of the white lines
And all the memories we left behind
We're all just prisoners of that lonely road
And I'm still getting old...getting old...on that lonely road...
Track Name: Laurel Canyon Hangover Blues
Stepped off the plane today
The California sun is wrecking my brain
Haven't got a place to stay
The ex-wife and her high-priced lawyer
Took my mansion away...

Didn't wanna be your worst enemy
Didn't wanna be your worst frenemy
I'm all alone, I'm by your side
It's true...all red-eyed and blue

Hey girl whatcha doin to me?
Running around LA with that Johnny Depp wannabe?
Is this how you wanna end the night?
His pretty face all messed up
And me and you in a fight?

REPEAT CHORUS

I gotta get out of the Hollywood Hills
Gotta get some new friends
Gotta get some more pills

You know its true: nobody love you like I do
Love you like I do...
Track Name: Oh, My Soul
Oh, my soul
What happened to our rock and roll?
Things don't sound the way they used to...
Oh, my lord
How did we get so bored
Everybody sounds just like you...

Everybody's got a broken heartache
Everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody's gotta sinking feeling
Everybody's gonna lose their minds

Oh no: Oh, my soul...

Oh, my soul
Where did all of our time go
Things ain't been the same without you around
Oh, my lord
How did we get so bored
When we died inside we barely made a sound...

Wanna live in a dream
Wanna live in my record machine
Wanna live in a yellow submarine
Track Name: It's Over Now
She told me last night
I don't wanna fight anymore
Looks like its over now...
She sold everything
Gave back her wedding ring
Looks like its over now...

Can't get no sleep
Can't get no peace
Can't seem to make it through this world alone

She's leaving today
Ain't nothing I can do or say
Looks like it's over now

REPEAT CHORUS
REPEAT FIRST VERSE
