So Long Senorita Call me dirty in the make up Call me dirty in the lonely in the break up (chorus) How much does it cost if it's free to be broken? How much does it cost if it's free to be broken? Oh - So long Senorita Oh - So long - Senor Senorita. You can call me on the phone anytime I matter to you You always want to be alone So I don't have any right to choose (chorus) Been waiting so long Waiting so long Waiting so long Waiting so long (chorus)

Waiting For A Lover Tonight I've had love as sweet as the taste of tears and my patience to guide me through the years alone wishing and waiting for a lover tonight Time may reply to my every dream and send me someone who's been waiting like me alone wishing and waiting for a lover tonight I'd fall for a kiss someone to be with yes I'd fall 'neath the prison of your heart. I may have no one and yet I still smile But I've had to go on just as helpless as a child alone wishing and waiting for a lover tonight. I'm still waiting yes I'm still waiting for a lover tonight.

The Wind 05:26
The Wind I'm trapped inside myself and I'm not broken. I'm talking to myself and I feel open. I am like the wind sometimes I feel I'm ready to blow. I should know to where I'm blowing but I don't know. I hear birds flying by singing a storm is near but I'm feeling quite insane I'm going to stay right here. Wait until the storm comes absorbs me in its cold. I should know to where the sun shines but I don't know. I'm trapped inside myself and I'm not broken. I'm talking to myself and I feel open. I am like the wind sometimes I feel I'm ready to blow. I should know to where I'm blowing but I don't know.

Mess Blues 04:55
Mess Blues Now won't you get me my liquor? Get me my wine? Throw me a party so I can have a good time? Because I'm bad and I'm gonna make a mess out of me. She's a low down woman She's a crying shame She's got more problems than anybody can name. But I'm bad and I'm gonna make a mess out of me. I have faith I have faith I'm the one who's always going to pay for the pain that I cause so won't you get your claws off my back? Some people miss me most people don't. You don't know me and I know that you won't. Because I'm bad and I'm gonna make a mess out of me. Women make their mind up about you. They tell you what you can do. Then they throw you a rope and their gone. Then they hurry for cover if you want to be their lover and they say "man, we just don't get along." So won't you get me my liquor? Get me my wine? Throw me a party so I can have a good time? Because I'm bad and I'm gonna make a mess out of me. well you know I'm bad I'm gonna make a mess out of me.

Tired Of Honky Tonking (chorus) I'm tired of honky tonking Got myself going down slow I'm tired of honky tonking Got myself going down slow Got to slow down going down slow down going down slow I had a honky tonking woman giving me the honky tonk blues I had a honky tonking woman giving me the honky tonk blues Now she's honky tonking elsewhere and I got nothing to lose (chorus) Boys at the table always got something to prove The boys at the table always got something to prove I'm tired of honky tonking steal me some walking blues. I'm tired of honky tonking toe tapping nowhere to go I'm tired of honky tonking toe tapping nowhere to go got no money to gamble so broke I'm about to croak. (chorus)

Your Smile Is Your Wealth In the morning sun is on your face in the evening gone is your embrace. (chorus) Hey, wear the rain on your brow Be beautiful, take life sweetly Don't be like them, express yourself Your smile is your wealth. I have followed me and found me under your feet. I will lift you until the stars retreat. (chorus) I have met you when my life has been unfair. I will let you think of me and I'll be there. (chorus x2)

Going Out West The going nowhere people Life has passed them by They don't believe in nothing Even what's behind their lies And they don't want to feel no pain Tomorrow or today And yesterday is just another day gone by. I'm going somewhere better to hell with all the weather and to hell with the bottle by my side (chorus) I'm going out west to the sunshine and the love. I'm going out west to the sunshine and the love. I wonder about those people Where they all could go? If the money wasn't running out If their friends weren't up in smoke. And they ain't got nothing good to say To you or to me and to themselves they're just as blind as they can be. But I'm going somewhere better To hell with all the weather To hell with the bottle by my side (chorus) Someone called me brother and he had a drink on me but nothing would make me feel more fine than going somewhere better To hell with all the weather To hell with the bottle by my side (chorus)
