Feel At Home 03:37
Feel At Home by Gordon Lee Worden, Gord Matthews and Gord Maxwell (2012) Beat up or beat down I’m in a strange town somewhere above ground She knows my story and she’s waiting for me I’m so sorry It’s getting hard to find an open piece of mind And this road keeps winding So I’ll sing a few songs but it won’t be too long before I’m gone (Chorus) She’s probably a sunny day She’s probably a million good reasons to stay Freedom’s all I own I’m starting at the ending I’ve given up pretending that I am not alone I don’t want to feel at home Some words are weapons Some are lies and some are lessons Silence is golden And this hand you’re holding has got to fold (Chorus) She’s probably a sunny day She’s probably a million good reasons to stay Freedom’s all I own I’m starting at the ending I’ve given up pretending that I am not alone I don’t want to feel at home (Bridge) If I keep on wandering ‘round My feet only touch the ground one at a time (Chorus) (Chorus) She’s probably a sunny day She’s probably a million good reasons to stay Freedom’s all I own I’m starting at the ending I’ve given up pretending that I am not alone I don’t want to feel at home

Childhood Memories by Gord Maxwell (2012) When I first looked into those eyes Took me totally by surprise Right there that stare read everything in my mind Just a few hours old Another story not yet told I could see she was already writing hers in bold If I look into those eyes right now... (Chorus) I can see that little girl Like it was only yesterday Back when I was her whole world And I could kiss the pain away Life marches on and the road gets steep So much is lost but some things you get to keep I’m trying to hold on to those childhood memories Building lemonade stands That first trip to Disneyland Christmas time, nursery rhymes, ten dirty snails in your hands Puttin’ on a puppet show Making angels in the fresh snow Fashion trends, boyfriends, where did my little girl go? Oh, but if I look into those eyes right now.… (Chorus) I can see that little girl Like it was only yesterday Back when I was her whole world And I could kiss the pain away Life marches on and the road gets steep So much is lost but some things you get to keep I’m trying to hold on to those childhood memories (Bridge) Sometimes it gets so hard to put food on the table But I can’t help but feel blessed Just to still be able... To look into those eyes And see that little girl I guess it comes as no surprise She’s ready to take on the whole world But life goes on, don’t get in too deep Don’t lose sight of all that you need to keep Try to hold on... (Chorus) I can see that little girl Like it was only yesterday Back when I was her whole world And I could kiss the pain away Life marches on and the road gets steep So much is lost but some things I get to keep I’m trying to hold on to those childhood memories Keep on holding on to those childhood memories

A House, A Woman, A Song by Gord Matthews (2012) I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout traveling lately I’ve been thinking if there’s a place I would feel good I would trade in that car right now, baby I would trade in that car, baby, that’s for sure When I need some piece of mind I turn to something I know is true and tried (Chorus) A real good song make me feel like cleaning up my house A real good woman make me feel like listening to a real good song And a real good dinner make me feel like taking a good long walk So I can come back to my house and my woman and my song Back to my house and my woman and my song I’ve been thinking a lot about money I’ve been thinkin’ how much it takes to feel good ‘Cause I’ve been doing without a lot lately I”ve been doing without lately, that’s for sure ‘Cause when I need some piece of mind I turn to something I know is true and tried (Chorus) A real good song make me feel like cleaning up my house And a real good woman make me feel like listening to a real good song And a real good dinner make me feel like taking a good long walk So I can come back to my house and my woman and my song Back to my house and my woman and my song Guitar solo I’ve been thinking ‘bout love a lot lately I’ve been thinking how much it takes to feel good ‘Cause I’ve been spinnin’ around a lot lately I’ve been spinning around lately, that’s for sure When I need some piece of mind I turn to something I know is true and tried (Chorus) A real good song make me feel like cleaning up my house And a real good woman make me feel like listening to a real good song And a real good dinner make me feel like taking a good long walk So I can come back to my house and my woman and my song Back to my house and my woman and my song My woman and my song...

Take Your Time by Gordon Lee Worden (2012) I would do anything for you Live only to see your dreams come true If I had my way, your every day would be just beautiful The tender heart that beats inside Longs to take you far and wide My little girl’s all grown up Right before my eyes (Chorus) Take a second to say goodbye, say goodbye Life can turn on a dime In a hurry to say goodbye, say goodbye Once you’ve made up your mind that you’re ready to say goodbye, say goodbye You don’t wanna waste your time Go on and take your time Now the story of your life feels like it’s hung up on page five Another day in this town could bury you alive There’s rumours about some kids who died Forever young, forever high And there is nothing as sad as destiny denied (Chorus) It takes a second to say goodbye, say goodbye Life can turn on a dime In a hurry to say goodbye, say goodbye Once you’ve made up your mind that you’re ready to say goodbye, say goodbye You don’t wanna waste your time Go on and take your time Guitar solo I see you staring into space, I see something different in your face And I know that someone else has notice that you’re beautiful.… (Chorus) And I don’t want you to say goodbye, say goodbye Life can turn on a dime In a hurry to say goodbye, say goodbye Once you’ve made up your mind that you’re ready to say goodbye, say goodbye You don’t wanna waste your time Go on and take your time

Proud 03:56
Proud by Gordon Lee Worden (2012) The waves roll in, the waves roll out and I don’t change If it costs too much I’ll do without and I won’t change The winds of war can twist and shout and I don’t change ‘Cause I can fight my own way out and I won’t change I don’t change for no-one... (Chorus) I will stand my ground And I will make you proud Your mossy yard is overgrown and I don’t change As nature claims your empty home but I don’t change People come and people go and I don’t change I’m moving on without letting go ‘cause I don’t change I don’t change for no-one... (Chorus) I will stand my ground And I will make you proud (Bridge) There’s no turning back When memories attack I know all good things eventually subtract I’ve spent my life collecting things and I won’t change I’d give it all just to hear you sing and I won’t change I don’t change for no-one... (Chorus) I will stand my ground And I will make you proud

Magpie 03:30
Magpie by Ian Tyson (arranged 2012 by The Gords) Magpie, you’re an early riser Magpie, such a bold chastiser Always waking up my wife and I, You ol’ coyote of the sky Magpie, some say you’re a bold deceiver I say, I say you’re a true believer And I know the west will never die As long as you can fly (Bridge) You travel around these hills like a gypsy Your choice is meat for something to eat You build a big house with a front and a back door You want to be free (Chorus) Holy Moses, Magpie I am you, you are me Walk that walk, talk that talk Out on the trail, you got a beautiful tail Riding on the back of the white buffalo Magpie, you know the west will never die As long as you can fly Guitar solo Magpie, some say you’re a bold deceiver But I say, I say you’re a true believer Magpie, I know the west will never die As long as you can fly (Bridge) You hang around these hills in the wintertime (why’d you want to do that?) If it was me, I’d be out of here, man (Give me a couple’ seconds and I’ll grab my hat) Magpie you’re a pretty bird You just want to be free (Chorus) Holy Moses, Magpie I am you, you are me Magpie, Magpie I know the west will never die

Old Dreams Die Hard by Gordon Lee Worden (2012) There’s a hot-rod in the driveway, can’t you smell the Armor-all He won’t go near the freeway, he probably shouldn’t drive at all He just can’t seem to let it go One thing everybody knows Old dreams die hard She’s filling up the back seat, she’s got a small PA and lights Rockin’ at The Wheatsheaf on every second Friday night Waitress says they play too loud As long as they can draw a crowd Old dreams die hard (Chorus) Time keeps slipping away so let your dreams die hard Life can lead you astray so let your dreams die hard The last to leave the party is now the first to fade away The T-shirt still says “Harley”, the leather’s weather-worn and grey Soon he’s gonna take that ride Out across the great divide Old dreams die hard (Chorus) Time keeps slipping away so let your dreams die hard Life can lead you astray so let your dreams die hard Time keeps slipping away... guitar solo (Chorus) Time keeps slipping away so let your dreams die hard Life can lead you astray so let your dreams die hard Time keeps slipping away...

Somewhere In The Rubies by Ian Tyson (arrangement 2012 by The Gords) If I knew which way to go I would hold you in my arms again I’d find that winding road again That leads back to you And those Ruby Mountain storms They can’t keep me from you anymore High centered on the desert floor So far from you I see you in my dreams I see you in the rain Oh, those smoky grey eyes I’m so afraid I’ll never see you again (Chorus) I will hold you in my arms If it takes until the end of time I pray that you will wait for me Somewhere in the Rubies tonight guitar solo I see you in my dreams I see you in the rain Oh, those smoky grey eyes I’m so afraid I’ll never see you again (Chorus) I will hold you in my arms If it takes until the end of time I pray that you will wait for me Somewhere in the Rubies tonight

High Road 03:59
High Road by Gord Maxwell, Gordon Lee Worden and Gord Matthews (2012) She asked if she could stay, I said ‘you better go’ She said ‘You’re a good man”, I said ‘I don’t know’ I’ve spent countless hours thinking ‘bout this, wondering what I’d do A choice that isn’t easy but has nothing to do with you (Chorus) If this is called the high road, then why do I feel so low? Thinking ‘bout what might have been as I stand and watch you go If this is called the high road then it’s all I’ve ever known Can’t get off now, I don’t know how Let the high road take me home Maybe I’m a fool, I guess some would say it’s true There’s just no way they could turn away from someone beautiful as you But I’ve spent half of my life with the same wife Now you come along Just one night would feel so right, but in my heart I know it’s wrong (Chorus) If this is called the high road, then why do I feel so low? Thinking ‘bout what might have been as I stand and watch you go If this is called the high road then it’s all I’ve ever known Can’t get off now, I don’t know how Let the high road take me home (Bridge) High road (take me home) High road (take me home) (Chorus) If this is called the high road, then why do I feel so low? Thinking ‘bout what might have been as I stand and watch you go If this is called the high road then it’s all I’ve ever known I can’t get off, I’d just get lost Let the high road take me home Take me home High road (3X)

Time To Cry 06:17
Time To Cry by Gord Matthews (2012) Time, oh sweet time Tell me, where do you go? And will you find me, lying lost out in the snow ‘Cause I’m so worried, well, I feel I’m missing out I change my watch everyday ‘cause the only time it shouts Is when it’s time When it’s time to cry Oh, sweet young thing Tell me, where did you go? Gone forever, or maybe lying low I’m so worried, well, I feel I’m missing out I change my watch everyday ‘cause the only time it shouts Is when it’s time When it’s time to cry Is when it’s time When it’s time to cry (Bridge) I’m gonna throw all my hats out the window ‘til I feel good ‘Cause I could use some more room in my closets That would feel good And everything would be just fine, until the thought of you enters my mind And then it’s time, and then it’s time Then it’s time to cry Then it’s time to cry guitar solo Someone please tell me, tell me, where did I go wrong? I’m so far from empty, tell me, why can’t I move on? I’m so worried, well, I feel I’m missing out I change my watch everyday ‘cause the only time it shouts Is when it’s time When it’s time to cry Is when it’s time Oh, when it’s time to cry Time to cry Oh, when it’s time, when it’s time When it’s time to cry Oh, when it’s time...

When Dreams Collide by Gord Matthews (2012) When dreams collide Pieces fly everywhere They land on foreign shores along with mine and yours When dreams collide The years left just hanging there Put in a box and forgotten somewhere along with mine and yours Our mansion in the sun doesn’t care who comes or goes We built it with our love, now our love has faded and gone Now the home where we live lies in waiting to be swept away When another dream of love comes drifting down this way When dreams collide A universe just disappears To a dark and lonely sky along with mine and yours guitar and sax solo Our mansion in the sun doesn’t care who comes or goes We built it with our love, now our love has faded and gone Now the home where we live lies in waiting to be swept away When another dream of love comes drifting down this way When dreams collide A universe just disappears Into a dark and lonely sky along with mine and yours Into a dark and lonely sky along with mine and yours
