Track Name: So Long Senorita
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)
Track Name: Waiting For A Lover Tonight
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.
Track Name: The Wind
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.
Track Name: Mess Blues
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.
Track Name: Tired Of Honky Tonking
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)
Track Name: Your Smile Is Your Wealth
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)
Track Name: Going Out West
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)
