EARLY MORNING TRAIN I thought you were leaving on the early morning train I came down to send you on your way I thought you were leaving me without saying goodbye Ain’t it funny how the sun shines through the rain Remember those days when we held each other’s hands And all of the times that we shared I thought you were leaving me without saying goodbye I came down just to let you know I care Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever understand How the boy in me has turned into a man And then I go and wonder if I’ll ever find out how How the girl in you has become a woman now Remember back when how we laughed and cried out loud How we danced through the night amongst the stars I thought you were leaving me without saying goodbye I came down just to let you know I’m proud Just fly like a bird my precious little one You’re all set to ride on the early morning train I thought you were leaving me without saying a word Ain’t it funny how the sun shines through the rain .Johann Löwenberg - Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar .Gord Maxwell - BG Vocals .Chas Williams - Dobro .Andreas Schuld - Acoustic & Electric Guitars, Guitalele, Drums, Bass

THIS GOOD OL’ BOAT When summer comes you know the livin’s easy Lay down your head underneath a shady tree This good ol’ boat can still sail on the water It’ll take you to the island of your dreams When summer comes you know the sun is risin’ Lay down your head ‘neath that shady tree This good ol’ boat can show you a new horizon It’ll take you to the island of your dreams This good ol’ boat can sail across the ocean This good ol’ boat can sail across the sea This good ol’ boat can be your friend Take you by the hand This good ol’ boat can take you back to land When summer comes you know the sun is setting Lay down your head ‘neath a shady tree This good ol’ boat can stay afloat Until you find your way It’ll take you to the island of your dreams .Johann Löwenberg -Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Harmonica, Bass .Andreas Shuld - Acoustic Guitar & Keyboard

MOUNTAIN PASS SONG When it comes around the bend the train is moving’ slow High above the mountain pass the river starts to flow There comes a time in one’s life when you get the urge to go I know, whatever way the wind blows,I’ll go No matter where the wind blows, I’ll go When it comes around the bend the train is keeping time High above the mountain pass the eagle starts to climb There comes a moment in one’s life When you move on down the line I know, whatever way the wind blows, I’ll go No matter where the wind blows, I’ll go When it comes around the bend you can hear the engine roar High above the mountain pass you can see the eagle soar There comes a time in one’s life when you open up that door And go, whatever way the wind blows, I’ll go No matter where the wind blows. I’ll go When it comes around the bend the train is moving’ slow High above the mountain pass the sky is all aglow There comes a time in one’s life when you get the urge to go I know, whatever way the wind blows, I’ll go No matter where the wind blows I’ll go ….I will go .Johann Löwenberg - Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar .Gord Maxwell - BG Vocals .Andreas Schuld - Acoustic & Electric guitars, Baritone Guitar, Guitalele, Drums & Percussion, Bass

NO PLACE LIKE HOME There are places far away I can wander to and fro There are spaces I must fill In my heart I need to go Far and wide, this great divide Passion stirs the storm Rain on down this treasure I’ve found In my heart there’s no place like home There’s a mountain in the sky Climbing higher takes its toll There’s a longing deep inside There’s a fire in my soul Far and wide, this great divide Passion strirs the storm Rain on down this treasure I’ve found In my heart there’s no place like home .Johann Löwenberg - Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar .Gord Maxwell - BG Vocals .Andreas Schuld - Acoustic & Electric Guitars, Guitalele,Drums, Bass

THE WONDER OF YOU Don’t go cryin’ on your pillow And don’t go pining by the weeping willow tree For the sun is a’risin’, the day is anew So don’t you go cryin’ Say goodbye to the rain falling down on you Don’t go hiding from the sunshine And don’t go sighing when you go and bide your time Just look at the mystery of all that is true Let go of the history Say hello to the ‘wonder of you’ I can see all the splendor in your eyes A moment’s surrender to the morning sunrise Don’t go cryin’ on your pillow And don’t go pining by the weeping willow tree For the sun is a’shinin’, the sky is so blue So don’t you go cryin’ Say hello to the ‘wonder of you’ Say hello to the ‘wonder of you’ .Johann Löwenberg - Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar .Gord Maxwell - BG Vocals .Andreas Schuld - Acoustic & Electric Guitars, Bass, Keyboards

MY SWEET HAVANA ROSE Come down to the town, old Havana way Love song I have found at the break of day Sweet sound of guitar, I like to hear you play Oh my sweet Havana Rose Sunshine in your hair, have you heard the news Love song in the air, I like the way it grooves Sweet sound of guitar, how old Havana moves Oh my sweet Havana Rose You play the song that opens up my lonesome heart How your guitarra gently flows You play the song that puts the horse before the cart Oh my sweet Havana Rose Come down to the town, wander to and fro Love song I have found, when the rooster crows Sweet sound of guitar, how old Havana knows Oh my sweet Havana Rose .Johann Löwenberg - Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar .Gord Maxwell - BG Vocals .Mark James - Trumpet .Andreas Schuld - Acoustic & Electric Guitars, Guitalele, Drums & Percussion, Bass, Keyboards

ALL BECAUSE OF YOU All because of you, I’m standing on the ground And all because of you, I’m watching the world go round Just like the wind blows through my hair I’m planning to take you everywhere I’ll try to keep it good, to do what I should And ya know, it’s all because of you All because of you, I’m holding this hand I drew And all because of you, I’m planning to carry through Just like the sailboat on the bay I’m planning to take us far away I’ll try to keep it true, to do what I do And ya know, it’s all because of you Let’s try to find our place in the sun Let’s try to find the space to run Let’s try to go and catch us some fun And live everyday as one Just like the wind blows through my hair I’m planning to take us everywhere Let’s try to keep it good, to do what we should And ya know, it’s all because of you Let’s try to keep it true, to do what we do And ya know, it’s all because of you .Johann Löwenberg - Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar .Gord Maxwell - BG Vocals, .Andreas Schuld - Acoustic & Electric Guitars, Guitalele, Drums, Bass

ON THE MILKRUN TRAIN Oh I’d like to say that I’m on my way headin’ south on the mikrun train If yesterday’s life is a hobo’s life, then I want it to stay the same I paid my dues and wore out my walkin’ shoes Will I make it back again ‘Cause a way down south I got me a claim A little piece of land in my daddy’s name I wanna go back from where I came To spread my ashes in the wind and the rain I’ll lie in the cold ‘till the mornin’ after outside some motel room I’ll cover my head with a newspaper bed and I hope I getta warm real soon I’m a ramblin’ man and I’ll live if I can long before the time I’m dead ‘Cause a way down south… Runnin’ in the mornin’ catchin’ wind to catch a ride 10:30 train whistle blowin’ outside Hoppin’ on a cattle car wonderin’ where to hide Lookin down to the town, waving goodbye Oh I wanna go back from where I came Train whistle track will take me there again Oh I’ll drift on down to the heart of the land Don’t know a better way to go None of that talk about all the hard luck, it’s good for the inner soul I’ll be movin’ on down from town to town, I’m as lucky as a man can be ‘Cause a way down south I got me a claim I've done a full circle on the railway chain I wanna go back from where I came To spread my ashes in the wind and the rain .Johann Löwenberg - Lead & Vocals, Acoustic Guitar .Gord Maxwell - BG Vocals .Chas Williams - Banjo, Dobro .Howard Willett - Harmonica .Andreas Schuld - Acoustic Guitars, Guitalele, Bass

DOWN BY THE LAZY RIVER I’ve been standin’ out on this highway Seems like a very long time Is there anybody goin’ my way down the line I’ve been workin’ upon this mountain Watchin’ the world go by I’ve been in there for the countin’ Now it’s time to fly Oh I wanna go down, down by the lazy river Yes, I wanna go down ‘round the bend Lord, I wanna go down, down by the lazy river Oh I wanna go down, all the way down to the end I’ve been searchin’ for the long lost highway Seems like it’s taken it’s toll I’ve been missin’ you lookin’ my way, into my soul I’ve been workin’ upon this mountain All the live long day Been drinkin’ from the water fountain Now it’s time to play Oh I wanna go down, down by the lazy river Yes, I wanna go down t'where I roam Lord, I wanna go down, down by the lazy river Yes I wanna go down, all the way down to my home .Johann Löwenberg - Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar .Gord Maxwell - BG Vocals .Howad Willett - Harmonica .Andreas Schuld - Electric & Acoustic Guitars, Baritone Guitar, Guitalele, Drums, Bass, Mandolin, Keyboards

ECHOES OF THE ROAD It’s been a long time comin’ to the end of the line My clothes are all tattered with the sands of time Been a life long journey to lighten my load You can’t take it with you when there’s nowhere to go It’s the ‘echoes of the road' you hold onto Listen to the sounds of time It’s the 'echoes of the road’ you hold onto Leave your troubles behind There’ve been so many souls I met along the way So many times they asked me to stay So many falls when I stumbled on the path So many lovers who helped me do the math It’s now so much better with an old empty sack I do what I do out along the track I got my boots of leather and a feather in my cap I do what I do and I ain’t lookin’ back It’s been some kind a wonder ever since I was born To count my lucky stars and to weather the storm Climb every mountain to reach the other side To win all the battles or at least say I tried .Johann Löwenberg - Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar .Gord Maxwell - BG Vocals .Norm Fisher - Fretless Bass .Andreas Schuld - Electric Guitars, Acoustic Guitars, Percusion
