Track Name: Back Road To Vegas
Back Road To Vegas

Shotgun blast
Full moon sky
Pine tree cliffs
Stars shine high
One lane bridge
Dirt wheels fly
Driving the back road to Vegas

Greenstone key
Horse drawn cut
Hairpin fence
Gate locked shut
Old track saved
Bushman’s hut
Driving the back road to Vegas

The new highway’s no good
The new highway’s no good
Strip it down to the wood
Down to the wood
The new highway’s no good
Strip it down

Hometown hills
Farm dog lake
Golf course views
Flat foot straight
Quick glance left
Red lights brake
Driving the back road to Vegas
Track Name: House By The Highway
House By The Highway

I’ve got a house by the highway
I love to hear the sound of those wheels (x2)
Rolling late at night don’t you know how good it feels?

It ain’t much to look at
But I call it home (x2)
Pretty much everything in this world that I own

It’s got one room out back
A porch at the side
That’s where I sit and watch those cars passing by

I’ve got a house by the highway
I love the sound of those wheels
Rolling late at night don’t you know how good it feels?

The kitchen window rattles
The roof leaks when it rains (x2)
But some people got nothing I know I can’t complain

So the next time you’re driving
Be sure to stop in (x2)
Be good to see you baby always good to see you again
Track Name: Hard Work
Hard Work

Hard work
Working hard
I’m a labouring man
I work hard

My teeth are loose
So are my jeans
On this spade
My shadow leans

I work this road
Oh don’t I know
Turning signs
With a stop and go

Dust and rocks
Rocks and dust
I’m a machine
But my wheels won’t rust

I’m up at five
The break of day
Watching cars
Drive my way

Hard graft
Grafting hard
That’s my call
My calling card

I’ve got bills
Stacked this high
I pay my way
That’s no lie

Hard work
That’s my gig
Working hard
Watch me dig
Track Name: Leather Tongue Motel
Leather Tongue Motel

You wake up in a fever your boots still on your feet
As naked as a napkin your clothes dropped in a heap
With the curtains pulled, there’s no need to think, you can pour yourself a drink
Leaning on the mirror above the bathroom sink

Line them up
Knock them down
Play them fast

One more leather tongue motel (x3)

A waitress on a bender has crashed out in a chair
She’s sleeping off the party a blonde mess of hair
With her mountain eyes, she reminded you, of a river running true
Fresher than a flower shining in the morning dew

One more leather tongue motel (x3)

The desert sky is raining sand
You got one hand on the wheel
Listening to highway 61 singing how…
How does it feel?

The concert is a screamer the crowd yells out for more
You give them what they’re wanting a sing-a-long encore
With the lights up full, you can see them all, they’re dancing in the hall
Walking from the venue you can hear them call

Line them up
Knock them down
Play them fast

One more leather tongue motel (x3)
