Billy Joel's "The Way the Lights Went Out" -

"Oh yes those lights were bright on Broadway, but that was so many years ago. Before we all moved here to Florida, before the Mafia took over Mexico..."

If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Lousiana Man"
So rosin up that bow for "Faded Love" and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

I remember down in Houston we were puttin' on a show
When a cowboy in the back stood up and yelled, "Cotton-Eyed Joe"!
He said, "We love what you're doin', boys don't get us wrong
There's just somethin' missin' in your song"

So we dusted off our boots and put our cowboy hats on straight
Them Texans raised the roof when Jeff opened up his case
You say y'all all wanna two-step
You say ya wanna doe-si-doe
Well, here's your fiddlin' song before we go

under the Lone Star
Home Means Nevada
Written & Music by Bertha Raffetto


Way out in the land of the setting sun,
Where the wind blows wild and free,
There's a lovely spot, just the only one
That means home sweet home to me.
If you follow the old Kit Carson trail,
Until desert meets the hills,
Oh you certainly will agree with me,
It's the place of a thousand thrills.

Home means Nevada
Home means the hills,
Home means the sage and the pine.
Out by the Truckee, silvery rills,
Out where the sun always shines,
Here is the land which I love the best,
Fairer than all I can see.
Deep in the heart of the golden west
Home means Nevada to me.

Rhode Island's It for Me
Written by Charlie Hall
Music by Maria Day
Arranged by Kathryn Chester

Chorus
Iíve been to every state we have,
and I think Iím inclined to say
that Rhody stole my heart:
You can keep the forty-nine.

Herring gulls that dot the sky,
blue waves that paint the rocks,
water rich with Neptuneís life,
the boats that line the docks.
I see the lighthouse flickering
to help the sailors see.
Thereís a place for everyone:
Rhode Islandís It for Me.

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island
surrounded by the sea.
Some people roam the earth for home;
Rhode Islandís It for Me.

Night time would find me at Rosa's Cantina....



(Rosa's Cantina, well the one in went to in EP was a hole in the wall little shack next to the refineries, but great food and cheap too! ah memories )

Living in and out
Of a big fat suitcase

Bonafide ride
Step aside my johnson

In the woods of wisconsin

Wake up the cake

When they do in sicily

"Minnesota Girl" by Green Day


Sittin' on the hood of a camaro
Walkin' shooting stars across the earth
Counting all the bites from the mosquitoes
There goes my Minnesota girl


The mosquitoes line is oh, so true

Texas flood by-Stevie Ray Vaughn
"Well there's floodin' down in Texas
All of the telephone lines are down
Well there's floodin' down in Texas
All of the telephone lines are down
And I've been tryin' to call my baby
Lord and I can't get a single sound"

or one i can't help to sing along to

"Let's go to Luckenbach Texas with Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin' got us fueding
like the Hatfield and McCoys
Between Hank Williams pain songs, Newberry's train songs
and blue eyes cryin' in the rain out in Luckenbach Texas
ain't nobody feelin' no pain"

or the one i've been singing all day since putting up blue and silver star shaped christmas lights outside (COWBOYS BABY) --

"The stars at night
are big and bright
::clap clap clap clap::
Deep in the heart of Texas"

(oh how i can't wait to go back to Texas ::sigh:: )
