    1. Don't You Wish It Was True

      I dreamed I walked in heaven just the other night
      There was so much beauty, so much light
      Don't you wish it was true
      Don't you wish it was true

      An angel took my hand, said you don't have to hurry
      You got all the time in the world, don't worry
      Don't you wish it was true
      Lord, Don't you wish it was true

      But if tomorrow everybody was your friend
      Anyone could take you in
      No matter what or where you've been

      But if tomorrow everybody had enough
      The world wasn't quite so rough
      Lord don't you wish it was true

      He said the worlds gonna change and it's starting today
      There'll be no more armies, no more hate
      Don't you wish it was true
      Don't you wish it was true

      And all the little children who live happily
      There'll be singing and laughter, sweet harmony
      Don't you wish it was true
      Lord, Don't you wish it was true

      But if tomorrow
      Everybody under the sun was happy just living as one
      No borders or battles to be won

      But if tomorrow
      Everybody was your friend
      Happiness would never end
      Lord, don't you wish it was true

      Alright !
    [Solo]
      But if tomorrow
      Everybody under the sun was happy just to live as one
      No borders or battles to be won
      But if tomorrow
      Everybody was your friend
      Happiness would never end
      Lord, don't you wish it was true

      Lord, don't you wish it was true

      Alright !
    [Solo]
      Oooooooweeeeee

      What a beautiful day !

    2. Gunslinger

      Lookin' out across this town
      Kinda makes me wonder how
      All the things that make us great
      Got left so hard behind

      This used to be a peaceful place
      Decent folks hard workin' ways
      Now they hide behind locked doors
      Afraid to speak their minds

      I think we need a gunslinger
      Somebody tough to tame this town
      I think we need a gunslinger
      There'll be justice all around

      Someone let the fences go
      Wild eyed bunch moved in you know
      Shootin' up the streets shoutin' everybody down
      Dogs all runnin' loose

      Wrecked the papers, closed the school
      Tired old judge got roughed up too
      No one left to make a stand
      They whisper, "What's the use?"

      I think we need a gunslinger
      Somebody tough to tame this town
      I think we need a gunslinger
      There'll be justice all around

      I think we need a gunslinger
      Somebody tough to tame this town
      I think we need a gunslinger
      There'll be justice all around

      I think we need a gunslinger
      Somebody tough to tame this town
      I think we need a gunslinger
      There'll be justice all around

    3. Creedence Song

      Daddy had a band
      Played him a little guitar
      Traveled in a van
      Livin' that rock and roll
      Night after night
      People comin' up to the bandstand
      Say you can't go wrong
      If you play a little bit of that
      Creedence song

      It was late one night
      Cruisin' on down the interstate
      Stopped into a diner
      To get him some chili and fries
      Heard the waitress tell a guy
      Standin' over by the jukebox
      Hey you can't go wrong
      If you play a little bit of that
      Creedence song

      Well daddy took a shine
      To the lil' girl behind the counter
      She movin' her hips to the swamp beat
      Right on time
      Said could he play her somethin'
      Over there on the jukebox
      She said you can't wrong
      If you play a little bit of that
      Creedence song

      Daddy had a plan
      He asked that girl to marry
      With a brand new wife
      They're livin' on rock and roll
      Night after night
      She whispers oh so sweetly
      Hey you can't go wrong
      If you play a little bit of that
      Creedence song

    4. Broken Down Cowboy

      If I was a gambling man,
      Never would have let you play your hand
      With the broken down cowboy like me
      Cos you never can trust your luck
      He's bad news in a pickup truck
      A broken down cowboy like me

      He played every card he's got
      Had a good hand but he messed it up
      With that bummer down tumbled down hard

      Saddled banks for the pain
      Carries them around just like her middle name
      A losing streak play them or dont
    Chorus:

    Oh he stang you along sang you a lonesome song
    But he wind up alone again

      No matter how hard you try
      Never gonna let you get inside
      That tumbled down broken down hard
      It's a tough riding rodeo
      Mean hard stewin long time ago
      A broken down cowboy like me

      But the way I feel about you
      Wouldn't want that horse to hurt you to
      A broken down cowboy like me
    Chorus
      If I was a gambling man,
      Never would have let you play that hand
      With the broken down cowboy like me

    5. River Is Waiting

      The river is waiting
      Come rise up
      A new day is dawning
      Come rise up
      We be salin' at first light
      Come Gather
      Set our course for the crossing
      Together
    Chorus:

    Sail on
    Sail on
    The river is waiting
    Sail on

      The river is waiting
      I'm ready
      To slip from this island
      I'm ready
      Gonna leave all my sorrow
      Behind me
      Lift my face to the new day
      That's rising
    Chorus

    6. Long Dark Night

      George is in the jungle
      Knockin' on the door
      Come to get your children
      Wants to have a war

      Come on, lord you'd better run,
      Be a long dark night before this thing is done

      Brownie's in the outhouse
      Katrina on the line
      Government's a disaster
      But George, he says it's fine

      Come on, lord you'd better run,
      Be a long dark night before this thing is done

      Rummy's in the kitchen messin' with the pan
      Dickie's in the back stealing everything he can
      Come on, Lord you'd better run,
      Be a long dark night before this thing is done

      You better run, you better run,
      Lord you better run, Lord you better run,

      Runnin' down the highway
      Shoutin' to the Lord
      George's got religion
      And you know he can't afford more, yeah

      Come on, Lord you'd better run
      Be a long dark night before this thing is done
      Be a long dark night before this thing is done, oh Lord

    7. Summer Of Love

      It was the summer of love
      Freedom was in the air
      Young people everywhere
      So many questions if you dare

      It was the summer of love
      Stand back it will blow your mind
      Never seen such a powerful time
      Universe about to unwind
    Chorus:

    Reach out your arms
    Touch the moon touch the sky
    Face to the wind
    To be free

      It was the summer of love
      So many people on the move
      Flower children lookin' for the truth
      Will they find it or just excuse
    Chorus

    8. Natural Thing

      Well the flower was made for beauty
      And the bee was made to sting
      All around this world
      Honey it's a natural thing

      It can shake the high and mighty
      Bring a strong man to his knees
      All around this world
      Honey it's a natural thing

      When a man gets up in the morning
      He got to find that tiger to tame
      All around this world
      You know it's a natural thing

      But a man alone ain't nothin'
      Every Tarzan needs a Jane
      All around this world
      Honey it's a natural thing

      Well the little girls lookin' so pretty
      They make a poor man feel like a king
      All around this world
      Honey it's a natural thing

      It drives a man to cross the desert
      Or risk his life on a stormy sea
      All around this world
      Yeah it's a natural thing

      Well the flower was made for beauty
      And the bee was made to sting
      All around this world
      Honey it's a natural thing
      All around this world

    9. It Ain't Right

      There goes your big black limousine
      Shakin' your booty for the magazine
      Peekin' and posin' like a wannabe

      It ain't right
      It ain't right
      Such a waste of life

      Maybe you forgot how we live down here
      People work hard for the money dear
      You had such a hard day lookin' at the mirror

      It ain't right
      It ain't right
      Honey such a waste of life

      Another long weekend with your friends
      I thought that party would never end
      Well up to your rehab and gone again

      It ain't right
      It ain't right
      Honey such a waste of life

      There goes your big black limousine

    10. I Can't Take It No More

      I can't take it no more
      I can't take it no more
      I'm sick and tired of your dirty little war
      I can't take it no more

      You know you lied about the casualties
      You know you lied about the WMD's
      You know you lied about the detainees
      All over this world

      Stop talking about staying the course
      You keep a-beating that old dead horse
      You know you lied about how we went to war
      I can't take it no more

      I can't take it
      I can't take it

      I bet you never saw the old school yard
      I bet you never saw the national guard
      Your daddy wrote a check and there you are
      Another fortunate son

      I can't take it no more
      I can't take it no more
      I'm sick and tired of your dirty little war
      I can't take it no more

    11. Somebody Help Me

      I been all around the world
      Searching for my baby
      Tell me where can she be
      Lookin' high and low
      Way back in Kokomo
      It's still a mystery

      Somebody help me
      She don't want me no more
      Somebody help me
      I can't do this alone

      I crossed the great wall of China
      Spent my last dime
      Way down the amazon
      Swam the Indian Ocean
      Been up in Nova Scotia
      Where has my baby gone

      Somebody help me
      There's somethin' goin' wrong
      Somebody help me
      I can't do this alone

      I went home to Pocatello Idaho
      Can I find a familiar face
      Askin' everybody everyone I know
      She disappeared without a trace

      Somebody help me
      She don't want me no more
      Somebody help me
      I can't do this alone

      Somebody help me
      There's somethin' goin' wrong
      Somebody help me
      I can't do this alone

    12. Longshot

      And I ain't no doctor and I ain't no nurse
      Ain't gonna love you babe and nothin' could be worse
      Ain't got no aristocrat a hangin' in my tree
      So tell me little momma why you messin' with me
    Chorus:

    Looks like a lo-o-o-on-ng longshot baby
    Lookin' like a lo-o-o-n-ngshot baby to me

      I don't walk with the president I don't mess with the prime
      Ain't got no big shots baby workin' for me overtime
      I can see you're sophisticated a with your goody two shoes
      So tell me are you're slummin' baby I got nothin' to lose
    Chorus
      An I ain't no sinner and I ain't no saint.
      Ain't no hipocrit baby 'cept most every day
      I ain't got no religion a-clouding up my brain
      So tell me little mama, why you jumpin' my claim
