LYRICS

1. Rooftop

Words and Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer

Sitting on the rooftop feeling the blue moon glow down on me
Yeah it’s a little cold
But there’s a city of stars there coating the sky like a blanket of glitter
Covering the night

And I can recall when we’d climb up that trellis
The summer for walls, the roof was our palace

And then my thought’s have a mind of their own it seems
Taking me over just like a sweet dream
Sitting on the rooftop, the night so cool
And baby sweet baby, remembering you

Days long gone been coming into view
We were laughing and singing our hearts were reeling and
Playing to the rhythm of our own hearts beating

And I can recall when we’d climb up that trellis
The summer for walls, the roof was our palace

And then my thought’s have a mind of their own it seems
Taking me over just like a sweet dream
Sitting on the rooftop, the night so cool
And baby sweet baby, remembering you

2. Mama’s On a Mission

Lyrics by: Brigitte DeMeyer

Mama’s on a mission dishing out the wisdom
Papa got his wings and he ain’t coming back
Granny’s in the back yard kicking up the daisies
Sister’s preaching to the choir from her cadillac

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh

Hillbilly jaybird living for the big time
Rides the daily landslide into town
Chirping like a heavy, just to make a dollar
Singing for her supper ‘til the sun comes down

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh

Testifying to the judge
You try to pass inspection but he don’t budge
Shine your boots and stake your claim
Salute the sun but you pray
You pray for rain

Back wood, no good, wanna-be, never could
Get a handle hold a candle jump the shelf
Found that he could be king if he played a six string
Blowing them down like he’s the wind himself

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh

3. Another Thousand Miles

Words and Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer

It’s Sunday and it’s seven and I’m lying in my bed
Thinking about the things I probably should have said
I think I got the hang of hanging out solo
But I wonder if you wonder about me when we’re alone

I want to ride away your memory but when I get close
Here come another thousand miles to go

Well I paid a visit to the local medicine man
And I asked if he could get me to the promise land
He said smoke this pipe and say a prayer and you’ll be alright
But I never will forget that sweet September night

I want to ride away your memory but when I get close
Here come another thousand miles to go

Well I believe that candor can be right for the soul
And I’ve been poised and ready for my signal to crow
Well I’d walk a country mile for a little insight to know
How I’m supposed to hold on when I’m supposed to let go

I want to ride away your memory but when I get close
Here come another thousand miles to go

4. We’re All Goin’ In

Words and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2000 BDM Music

Well I’ve been called a sinner by my own next of kin
Staring down that double barreled finger again
She told me once she told me twice
You done broke the law
She’s come again to take me in
She’s come again to give me what for

Sister don’t shoot me down down
Testimony and high horses won’t get you a crown
You go east and I’ll go west until we meet again
When the gates swing wide open
That’s the day we’re all going in

She reached into her pocket and she pulled out a glove
And laid cross my cheek right then I knew push had come to shove
She angled for the righteous and I angled for the door
She’s come again to take me down
Come again to even the score

Sister don’t shoot me down down
Testimony and high horses won’t get you a crown
You go east and I’ll go west until we meet again
When the gates swing wide open
That’s the day we’re all going in

5. If By Chance

Words and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
© 2000 BDM Music

I am traveled
I am weary
I am thirsty and looking for a well
I’m no stranger, to the steep side
I’m no stranger to the steep side of the hill

And if by chance you hear the wind a howlin’
Rest assured that I won’t blow away
I’ll keep my eyes fixed upon the mountain
Just to see the night yield to the day
Just to see the night yield to the day

Even angels up above us
Have to stop sometime to fold their wings
But it don’t matter in the long run
You walk through fire before you walk with kings

And if by chance you hear the wind a howlin’
Rest assured that I won’t blow away
I’ll keep my eyes fixed upon the mountain
Just to see the night yield to the day
Just to see the night yield to the day

6. Already Gone

Words and Music by Chris Rossbach
©2000 RTFM Music, INC.

I have spent most of my life driving much too fast
Looking for lovers hoping one might last
Well I’ll never grow old and I’ll never grow tired
I will never feel lower and I will never feel higher

‘Cause I’m already gone
Looking for a feeling that was with me all along
Already gone on my way

I’ve spent most of my life trying to feel alright
Looking for truth and seeking the light
Well I had me a man I thought she was a saint
But he just couldn’t stand to be the man that he ain’t

‘Cause I’m already gone
Looking for a feeling that was with me all along
Already gone on my way

In all of my life I never learned to stand still
And the way things are going I probably never will
But in the midst of a hurricane nothing is fake
I may never know peace but that’s the chance I’ll take

‘Cause I’m already gone
Looking for a feeling that was with me all along
Already gone on my way

7. Sycamore Sadie

Words and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2000 BDM Music

Sycamore Sadie walking down the road
With a tender heart and a tattered soul
As she wandered she did behold
The silver tongued Johnny looking solid gold

Ooh ooh Sadie, heed what you yearn
Don’t let your sparks fly where sycamores burn

Now the sliver tongued Johnny was a wanted man
Could smooth pretty ruffled feathers with a single hand
A cool cool siren, Lord the man could sing
Now Sycamore Sadie wants to wear his ring

Ooh ooh Sadie, heed what you yearn
Don’t let your sparks fly where sycamores burn

Run around and blinded, tangled in his will
Sliding down the incline, just another thrill

Well six weeks later on down the road
Sadie’s been dueling with a heart of stone
She’s been checking underneath his hood
Sweet revival and the getting’s good

Ooh ooh Sadie, heed what you yearn
Don’t let your sparks fly where sycamores burn

8. Horse Hunk

Words and Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2000 BDM Music

Do you hear me talking to you
Well I see you trying to walk the line
While your heart beats like a locomotive
Did you see it all go up in smoke one more time

Well I think I got your number
I’ve walked for miles in your shoes
While a hundred thundering horses
Couldn’t stand to shake me from my blues, from my blues

I ain’t trying to be some kind of preacher to you
But you’ve been at them crossroads far too long
I think it’s time you bite the apple
I do declare it’s time you scaled the wall

I’d never sell you down the river
I’m just trying to be your friend
I’d beat the drum for you forever
Just to see you get down off that fence, off that fence
