Alabama Night
Music and Lyrics by Chuck Tharp
Chords: E, A, B, F#m, G#m

Here I am in Alabama, your 2000 miles away
Do you ever think of me in Alabama
While your reaching for your star there in LA?

All our friends still ask about you
Wondering if letting you go was right
But they don’t know you quite like I do
They didn’t see that far away look in your eyes

California was a dream you had to find
Alabama was my home, but if you should ever change your mind
I’ll be waiting here alone

So you just come on back to Alabama, if LA don’t treat you right
And we’ll make love in the country on a soft and warm Alabama night

California was a dream you had to find
Alabama was my home, but if you should ever change your mind
I’ll be waiting here alone

So you just come on back to Alabama, if LA don’t treat you right
And we’ll make love in the country on a soft and warm Alabama night



Fix it Up
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: C, G7, F, Dm7, Am

Fix it up, wear it out, make do, or do without
Fix it up, wear it out, make do, or do without

When I was young my papa say he said son, it’s hard to make Your way,
but there are things that you can do to make it work to make it through.
And so he sat upon his bench. He put down his hammer and
His wrench and as he put me on his knee this is what he said to me

Fix it up, wear it out, make do, or do without
Fix it up, wear it out, make do, or do without

Solo over Verse There are times when I just want to buy me a new one
And there are times when I just can’t get no relief
Then I swallow my pride and I feel the emotion
Of the words that the old man said to me…..SON

Fix it up, wear it out, make do, or do without
Fix it up, wear it out, make do, or do without

And now I’m old and I can see the wisdom in the words
He said to me and so I share with all of you, these precious
Words, this simple truth

Fix it up, wear it out, make do, or do without
Fix it up, wear it out, make do, or do without

Fix it up, wear it out, make do, or do without
Fix it up, wear it out, make do, or do without

Solo over verse out



Floyd Country Jamboree
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: A, B, E, C#m, Am, Em, B7

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh,
oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

Way out West, There’s a little ‘ole music fest
People come from miles around to this sleepy little town
Way Out West

What the people are coming to see
Is called the Floyd Lions Club Jamboree
The Millers and the Browns gettin’ up and gettin’ down
Way Out West

But when March comes ‘round for sure, you gonna hear them
Lions roar. Passing the music along, to our children in a song
And those who have met their fate are listening at the pearly gate,
When Wayne touch the strings, those angels beat their wings
Up at the pearly gate.

Solo over Verse twice

You might think that’s Johnny Cash, but that’s just our old friend
Dave Nash. Passing the music along, to our children in a song
And those who have met their fate are dancing at the pearly gate,
When Wayne touch the strings, those angels beat their wings
Up at the pearly gate

Way out West, There’s a little ‘ole music fest
People come from miles around to this sleepy little town

Way Out West Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh,
oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh



There’s Nothing to Eat in Tucumcari
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: G, C, D

Well there’s nothing to eat in Tucumcari for a vegetarian on the road
There’s burgers, steaks, chocolate milk shakes, Kentucky fried chicken
but don’t hit the brakes if you’re a vegetarian on the road

Well I got me a gig in Tucumcari at a bar out on Route 66
When I got there the food was scary and I thought if I ate it I might get sick

So I went to the local supermarket and I asked the girl for some vegetarian snacks
She looked at me like I was from another planet
And told me if I didn’t leave she’d kick my ass

Yeah, there’s nothing to eat in Tucumcari not a single soy bean to be found,
No salad or soup for me and the band, them Tucumcari people they don’t understand
If you’re a vegetarian on the road

Play it boys

So next time I go to Tucumcari I’ll be sure to pack my lunch
I don’t think they’ll be opening up a vegetarian restaurant anytime soon
but I don’t know, it’s just a hunch

Well there’s nothing to eat in Tucumcari for a vegetarian on the road There’s burgers, steaks, chocolate milk shakes, Kentucky fried chicken
but don’t hit the brakes if you’re a vegetarian on the road

Well there’s nothing to eat in Tucumcari for a vegetarian on the road
There’s burgers, steaks, chocolate milk shakes, Kentucky fried chicken
but don’t hit the brakes if you’re a vegetarian on the road

There’s burgers, steaks, chocolate milk shakes, Kentucky fried chicken
but don’t hit the brakes if you’re a vegetarian on the road



When Your Time is Up
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: E, A, B, F#m

Woke up this morning with Alaska on my face
I was dreaming about the end of the human race
Aurora Borealis, Caribou didn’t know I was so lonely until I lost you
Woke up this morning with Alaska on my face

Woke up this morning with Australia on my left
Dreamtime for me was better than best
I’m going to Uluru, to Sydney didn’t know I was so lonely until you left me
Woke up this morning with Australia on my left

Take the time to be around the people you love
Take the time to see all the places your dreaming of
Cause you never know, when your time is up
No you never know, when your time is up

Woke up this morning with Mexico at my feet
Teotihuacán is tough to beat
I’m going down to Cabo, Monterrey didn’t know I was so lonely until you went away
Woke up this morning with Mexico at my feet

Take the time to be around the people you love
Take the time to see all the places your dreaming of
Cause you never know, when your time is up
No you never know, when your time is up



Kewsong
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: G, D, C

On the day you were born I could hardly have known
You would be as beautiful as you are
But now I see, how pretty you can be
And you look just like your Mama when you smile

So lay your head down, don’t you scream don’t you frown
And let your Daddy hold you for a while

On the day you were born I could hardly have known
You would be as beautiful as you are
But now I see, how pretty you can be
And you look just like your Mama when you smile

So lay your head down, cause I will always be around
And let your Daddy hold you for a while
Yeah, let your Daddy hold you for a while
Yeah, let your Daddy hold you for a while



Make You Mine
Music and Lyrics by Graham Da Costa
Chords: E, A, B7, C7

Well she’s got the auburn hair and the bright blue eyes
When I’m with her I just feel alive
Some day soon you know I’ll make you mine

When I’m with her I just feel big time
When I’m not I can’t keep her off my mind
Some day soon you know I’ll make you mine

Hurry up let’s start something special today
The perfect life for us isn’t far away
I’ll be good to you for the rest of your life
Perfect can be there it ain’t outta sight
Some day soon you know I’ll make you mine

Hurry up let’s start something special today
The perfect life for us isn’t far away

Hurry up let’s start something special today
The perfect life for us isn’t far away
Yeah, I’ll be good to you for the rest of your life
Perfect can be there it ain’t outta sight
Some day soon you know I’m gonna, you know I’m gonna have to make you
Some day soon you know I’ll make you mine

Hurry up let’s start something special today
The perfect life for us isn’t far away
Yeah, I’ll be good to you for the rest of your life, you know I will
Perfect can be there it ain’t outta sight, alright!
Some day soon you know I’m gonna, you know I’m gonna have to make you
Some day soon you know I’ll make you mine



A Mi Madre
Music and Lyrics traditional
Chords: C, F, G, C7

Quisiera darte las gracias, madre de mi corazón
Por todas las bendiciones que me has dado con tu amor
Las flores del campo brillan y celebran en tu honor
Porque eres la flor mas linda que en el mundo puso dios

Me diste tu amor, me hiciste cariños
Mi felicidad, desde que era un niño
Las flores del campo brillan y celebran en tu honor
Porque eres la flor mas linda que en el mundo puso dios

INTERLUDIO

Venimos a festejarte, dando nuestra gratitud,
Pidiendo a dios te conceda muchos anos de salud
Las flores del campo brillan y celebran en tu honor
Porque eres la flor mas linda que en el mundo puso dios
Porque eres la flor mas linda que en el mundo puso dios



The Streets of Portales
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: G, C, D, Em, Am

Well I’m walking through the streets
See the moon and stars rockin’ to my gentle beat
And the rhythm of my feet, march to the realization of my dream

And nothin’s gonna bring, yeah nothin’s gonna bring me down tonight
And nothin’s gonna bring, I’m working on my dream in the streets of Portales

And the water tower shines to the light of the baseball field in the park
And there’s lightning in my eyes, in the distance the thunder fills the dark

And nothin’s gonna bring, yeah nothin’s gonna bring me down tonight
And nothin’s gonna bring, I’m working on my dream in the streets of Portales

Working on my dream in the streets of Portales (x2)

And the storm is getting nearer and the wind it starts to cry
And you wake up to a new day and the sun is in the sky high above the streets of Portales

No matter where I go, a part of me is in Portales, NM
A place for hopes and dreams, a place that’s not as bad as it may seem

And nothin’s gonna bring, yeah nothin’s gonna bring us down tonight
And nothin’s gonna bring, we’re all working on our dreams in the streets of Portales

Working on our dreams in the streets of Portales
Working on our dreams tonight
Working on our, working on our, working on our dreams
We’re all working on our dreams in the streets of Portales



You Fit Me Like a Mitten (Anne’s Song)
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: G, C, F, Em

People say they’re in love and the one I found fits me like a glove
But never a truer word has been written, you fit me like a mitten

Stars are coming out the sky is red, words they swim about inside my head
Love bug’s flying round and I’ve been bitten you fit me like a mitten

Believe me when I say I love you, I lay my heart on the line
I’ll never take gloves above you, I choose my mittens every time

Stars are coming out the sky is red, words they swim about inside my head
Love bug’s flying round and I’ve been bitten you fit me like a mitten

Love bug’s flying round and I’ve been bitten, you fit me like a mitten

Your love is like a soft warm kitten, you fit me like a mitten
No denying that I am smitten, you fit me like a mitten
Never a truer word has been written, you fit me like a mitten…..yeah, yeah
