Track Name: Sparkling Dome
Come on and take a walk with me tonight the sky is a sparkling dome
Come on lets go through the nighttime, carry on to the dawn.

I know you've been out running races
Weaving in and out of the hopeless places
I know you've been looking for the traces
Of the love you once found on smiling faces.

Come on and take a walk with me tonight the sky is a sparkling dome
Come on lets go through the nighttime, carry on to the dawn.

Honey, I can see by the look in your eyes
You got a certain something there's no denying.
Blame it in the weather or the stars in the sky
You got that look of loving that you just can't hide so

Come on and take a walk with me tonight the sky is a sparkling dome
Come on lets go through the nighttime, carry on to the dawn.

You telling me you thing that you're dreaming
But there's nothing wrong with that smile that you're beaming.
Hear you talk about your drunken feeling
But you're standing up straight and I'm the one that's reeling.

Come on and take a walk with me tonight the sky is a sparkling dome
Come on lets go through the nighttime, carry on to the dawn.
Come on and take a walk with me tonight
Come on lets go through the nighttime, carry on to,
Just carry on to, just carry on to the dawn.
Track Name: Home Brew
Well I get tired a drinking that store bought liquor
And don;t want to deal with the high priced stickers
Girl let me tell you I found a much better way
You put together barley malt yeast and honey
You end up with a much better brew for your money
A pure food you can call Home Brew.

Home Brew Home Brew there's just one thing i'm gonna ask of you:
Put together barley malt yeast and honey
End up with a much better brew for your money
A pure food that you can call Home Brew.

Well I met a fine girl thought I'd settle down
On a fine patch of earth put my feet on the ground
Before I call the preacher there's one thing a got to know
Before I'm ever gonna say "I do" there's one little thing i got to ask of you
That you don't stand between me and my Home Brew.

Well everybody's go a way to get through the night
Some folks get kinky some uptight
Some will try anything to drive them blues away.
My personal prescription I'll give to you
Good loving is all you'll need to see you through
But you can always have another glass of Home Brew.
Track Name: 28 Degrees in Saugerties
28 degrees in Saugerties and snow upon the ground
28 degrees in Saugerties and you are not around.
Get the fire going, hoping that you come around,
With 28 degrees in Saugerties with snow upon the ground.

The sun it starts to rising as I sing my song
The sun it starts to rising, my breath is long and cold.
Keep the fire going wild winds howling all around.
It's 28 degrees in Saugerties with snow upon the ground.

Maybe later this morning, maybe later at night,
Maybe sometime around midnight
The moon will rise up bright
And I'll see the glowing firelight
Reflected in your eyes.

28 degrees in Saugerties and snow upon the ground
Keep the fire going, you're in your night-gown
See the moon's a rising, your voice a soothing sound
With 28 degrees in Saugerties, it's 28 degrees in Saugerties
28 degrees in Saugerties with snow upon the ground,
Upon the ground.
Track Name: Railman ( Wide-Eyed)
It's no far trip to the border and back again from the Springs
Trestle over the water, maybe hear the Railman sing
Southbound freight moving downstate, green mountain cannonball
Pass this way not a second too late a hundred thousand tons to haul.

Wide-eyed Railman, did you hear what the whistle say
Take a lot more than a locomotive to haul this train today.

Many the council taken around the winter fire
Moonrise over the mountain lake, crowning our hearts desire
Though the winds may blow us to kingdom come
There's no place we got to roam,
Cause that sun gonna rise a hell-fire red on this pastureland
Our home.

Wide-eyed Railman, did you hear what the whistle say
Take a lot more than a locomotive to haul this train today.

The feeling so outstanding you don't have a thing to fear
There's a path so demanding take every able person to steer.
Though it's not my place to make a point or to even up the score
Cause chances are they're gonna bust this joint
'Fore the reaper come back, come back for more.

Wide-eyed Railman, did you hear what the whistle say
Take a lot more than a locomotive to haul this train today.
Take a lot more than a locomotive to haul this train today.
Take a lot more than a locomotive to haul this train today.
Track Name: Poor Boy's Rock
Made out good on good one, earned a twenty just singing a song
Spent all day traveling to work all night and maybe get to sleep by dawn.
No I’m not complaining I’ve just about come out whole
And what would the poor boy do without the rock-n-roll.

Just as soon have come this way as any way i seen
Tho there’s so many styles, very few breaks and a pile of broken dreams.
Swore I’d never waste my self in a live that didn’t have soul
And what would the poor boys do without the rock-n-roll.

I seen through diamond eyes and seen a many textured dream.
Stood through every shadowed doubt and forgotten truths I’ve seen.
Swore i never waste myself slaving for the gold
What would the poor boy do without the rock-n-roll.

Don't know what the poor boy'd do without the rock n roll.
Track Name: Jon Sentry ( the Myth of)
Well the day had come and the night had gone and still a lot remained
Of the food and drink and the people to meet with their pets wild and tame,
Still the thoughts of Jon Sentry, who left his cloak and cane,
Left the top for the round-about, just turn around up and change.

So he set out form their company and set himself to work
Long hours and hard with no credit cards and seldom a change of shirt
Swore won't pay more cut-throat rent so he stopped from that day on
Slept in cars and under the stars 'till he come into his own.

Well young Jon he saw to it that everyone had their share.
In the house he kept he seldom slept though he had plenty a time to spare.
I asked one of his people on day how they paid off the bill of fare,
She winked at me said "Can't you see all the gold that's in the air."

Many a journey's just begun, soon enough is over and done
Leave behind just a trace and memory.
Young Jon he's still holding together
With a band of his friends through every kind of weather
Holding and growing together and carrying on.

Well, I've been a place or two in my time where I probably go again
But I ain't seen a place like Jon Sentry's since I can't remember when
It may be that the people there were as true as they could be
Held none finer in my mind's eye since I've begun to see.
You might think I've got a lot on my mind or I've forgotten you my friend
Just been thinking over the way to get back there again.

Made out good on this one

and maybe get to sleep by dawn.
No I’m not complaining
I’ve just about come out whole
And what would the poor boy do without the rock-n-roll.

Just as soon have come this way
As any way i seen
Tho there’s so many styles, very few brakes
And a pile of broken dreams.
Swore I’d never waste my self
In a live that didn’t have soul
And what would the poor boys do without the rock-n-roll.

I seen through diamond eyes and seen
A many textured dream.
Stood through every shadowed doubt
And forgotten truths I’ve seen.
Swore i never waste myself slaving for the gold
What would the poor boy do without the rock-n-roll.

Just been thinking over and over and over and over again
Just been thinking over and over and over and over again
Just been thinking over and over and over and over again
Just been thinking over the way to get back there.
