Mississippi Queen
(West, Laing, Pappalardi, Rea)

Mississippi Queen, if you know what I mean
Mississippi Queen, she taught me everything
Way down around Vicksburg, around Louisiana way
Lived a cajun lady, called the Mississippi Queen
You know she was a dancer, she moved better on wine

While the rest of them dudes were gettin' their kicks
Brother, beg your pardon, now I'm gettin' mine

Mississippi Queen, if you know what I mean
Mississippi Queen, she taught me everything
The lady she asked me, if I would be her man
And you know that I told her, I'd do what I can
To keep her lookin' pretty, buy her dresses that shine

While the rest of them dudes were gettin' their kicks
Brother, beg your pardon, now I'm losin' mine

Theme For An Imaginary Western
(Bruce, Brown)

When the wagons leave the city
For the forest and further on
Painted wagons of the morning
Dusty roads where they have gone
Sometimes traveling through the darkness
Met the summer coming home
Fallen faces by the wayside
Looked as if they might have known

Oh, the sun was in their eyes
And the desert that dries
In the country town
Where the laughter sounds

All the dancing and the singing
All the music when they played
All the fires that they started
And all the girls with no regrets
Sometimes they found it, sometimes they kept it
Often lost it along the way
Fought each other to posses it
Sometimes died in sight of day.

Oh, the sun was in their eyes
And the desert that dries
In the country town
Where the laughter sounds

Never In My Life
(West, Pappalardi, Colins, Laing)

Never in my life
Did I find a girl like you
Never in my life
Did I find a girl like you
When I wake up in the morning
You make me feel so good
Bringing me the cider whisky
And a little bit of lovin' too

For the first time in my life
I finally found someone like you
For the first time in my life
I finally found someone like you
I feel like a bolt of lightning
But it feels so good
Knowin´ my baby´s waitin´
And of course I do
Hey hey hey

Never in my life
Did I find a girl like you
Never in my life
Did I find a girl like you
When I turned around to wake her
About the way she moves
I don´t want to leave her
But I wanta love you too Never in my life
Did I find a girl like you
Never in my life
Did I find a girl like you
When I wake up in the morning
You make me feel so good
Bringing me the cider whisky
Feel a bit lonely too

For the first time in my life
I finally found someone like you
For the first time in my life
I finally found someone like you
I feel like a bolt of lightning
But it feels so good
Knowin´ my baby´s waitin´
And of course I do
Hey hey hey

Never in my life
Did I find a girl like you
Never in my life
Did I find a girl like you
When I turned around to wake her
About the way she moves
I don´t want to leave her
But I wanta love you too

Silver Paper
(West, Pappalardi,Colins, Gardos, Knight, Laing)

Open your heart and let the sunshine in
Open your heart, let the sunshine in

Sun is shining on my world
Sun is in my shoes
While I´m passin´ through this life
This job is spent with you
Wrap my dreams in silver paper
Gonna give them all to you
Use them on some rainy morning
And they´ll tell you what to do

Open your heart and let the sunshine in
Open your heart, let the sunshine in
Open your heart and let the sunshine in
Open up your heart and let the sunshine in

Life is what you´re reaching through
When your path is spied
Wait until some rainy morning
You´ll be satisfied
Gonna wrap up my dreams in silver paper
Give it all to you
Use it on some rainy morning
It´ll tell you what to do

Open your heart and let the sunshine in
Open your heart, let the sunshine in
Open your heart and let the sunshine in
Open your heart, let the sunshine in

For Yasgur's Farm
(Gardos, Laing, Pappalardi, Collins, Ship, Rea)

Who am I but you and the sun
A sad reflection of everyone
Was it me who let you walk away?
Were you the one or is it we're the same?
What are we in time going by?
The simple story of a younger life
Half in dreams and somehow thru the day
We haven't come so far to lose our way

Look at me
I believe it's true
You're a part of me
I'm a part of you

Love is only what we come to live
The waking, breathing, and all we give
A crystal passing reflected in our eyes
Eclipsing all the jealousy and lies

Look at me
I believe it's true
You're a part of me
I'm a part of you

Quiet as the voices in a dream
Without you, shadowed, the things I see
Remember the evening I let you walk away
Were you the one or is it we're the same?

To My Friend
(West)

Instrumental

The Laird
(Pappalardi-Colins)

The laird is in hiding
He ran to the east
He stood in the courthouse
Pleading his case
His crime was a passion
An aching for peace

And he's not alone
And he's not alone
And he's not alone
And he's not alone

Let my people go
His soul is on paper
Freshly changed
And white men they keep him
Oh and not changing

And he's not around,yeah
And he's not around
He's not around
He's not around

Sittin' On A Rainbow
(West, Laing, Colins)

Sitting on a rainbow looking at the world
Standin' by the roadside waiting for my girl
Earning time and let it pay
When the sunshine's on its way
This is what you'll hear my say

Riding on a jet plane
Higher than a bird
Looking out the window
Don't believe a word
Earning time, earning pay
When the sunshine's on its way
This is what you hear me say

Boys In The Band
(Pappalardi, Colins)

Freight train
Why am I, I´m arriving late tonight
And the world is turning
Round and round the sun
All the places spinning by and by one by one
Coming home, I´m on time
Been gone such a long time
Goodbye traveling
So long to the boys in the band
Goodbye traveling
So long to the boys in the band

We play tunes today
Leaving memory of yesterday
All the circles widen getting in the sun
All the seasons spinning all the days one by one
Comin´ back before long
Comin´ back ´till I´m gone
Goodbye travelling
So long to the boys in the band
Goodbye travelling
So long to the boys in the band
