Track Name: Brother Ray
Brother Ray
Written By: Dar Stellabotta
C: hey hey call on brother Ray
he’ll tell you a story from back in the day
hey hey call on brother Ray
way down south, where the tractors run all day
where the tobacco grows
and the well goes deep, deep down
everyone works every single day
aint a lazy soul in the whole damn town
it’s getting hot outside
I need some water so I can stay alive
I break my back every single day
I think its about time to call on brother Ray X 4
C: hey hey call on brother Ray
he’ll tell you a story from back in the day
hey hey call on brother Ray
way down south, where the tractors run all day
mosquitos bite my skin
aw shit I got poison ivy again
give me my banjo and my pen
Im heading back to the mountains
goin to see my friends
maybe do some fishin
maybe do some swimming
I think its about time for some dancing again X 4
C: hey hey call on brother Ray
he’ll tell you a story from back in the day
hey hey call on brother Ray
way down south, where the tractors run all day
Track Name: Lost in the Dirt
Lost in the dirt
Written By: Dar Stellabotta
You say im lost in the dirt
I say Im not
C: Cause the sun wont
shine for the sinners
out there.
You better watch out
you better take care.
The good Lord will
watch you from above.
Them holy rollers
aint got no love.
I was born this way
cant seem to find a
better waY.
C: Cause the sun wont
shine for the sinners
out there.
You better watch out
you better take care.
The good Lord will
watch you from above.
Them holy rollers
aint got no love.
Track Name: Fountain of Youth
Fountain of youth
Written By: Dar Stellabotta
Chasing the fountain of youth
how long before you lost all of you?
cause you been waiting for the perfect time
but you’ll never get back that peace of mind
C: Stuck by yourself all alone
looking in the mirror no ones home.
cause you’ve been going too
long and too hard to give up now.
you want to stop, but you dont know how.
you will beat down and kill, you will run thru
to get that one drop of that fountain of youth.
C: Stuck by yourself all alone
looking in the mirror no ones home.
Track Name: Old Man Willy
Old man Willy
Written By: Dar Stellabotta
Now his days, his days are hot and long.
All the women he met, they been long gone.
the ghosts of the past creeps up on him.
where to start he cant even begin.
to tell you of the days
when he roamed the streets so wild.
God saved him, his mothers youngest child.
C: Old man Willy, lived by the river.
Old man Willy gonna die alone.
Now he sits alone in his rocking chair.
cant even move a muscle, cant even comb his hair
and the angel of death creeps over him
in the middle of the night, in the hour of sin
farewell leave your body, leave your body on the earth
into the next world you will give birth.
C: Old man Willy, lived by the river.
Old man Willy gonna die alone.
Track Name: Love Is Like a Tree
Love is like a tree
Written By: Dar Stellabotta
love is like a tree
it wont grow unless you start it with a seed
you got to start somewhere
someones gotta have the courage to care
C: you got to stop and look around
let love take you and spin you around.
Beauty is only skin deep
I know you really like me for me
its ok to be scared
no one wants to get hurt out there
C: you got to stop and look around
let love take you and spin you around.
I’ll just wait for your love
cause I know one day it wont keep us apart
true love can cut even stone
it can bring you back a million miles from home.
C: you got to stop and look around
let love take you and spin you around.
Track Name: Old with You
Old with you
Written By: Dar Stellabotta
Old with you
C: I just want to grow old with you
spendin my days not wasting away
Most people want to find love in their life
most of the time all they get is pain and strife
you cant avoid that no matter how you cut the cake
you got to know love in order to know hate.
Love is not perfect in any shape or form
theres always a calm before the storm
some people think love is a fairy tale
to get to heaven you got to trek thru hell.
C: I just want to grow old with you
spendin my days not wasting away
I dont need much to get me thru this life
All I need is you and a warm blanket at night
A cold glass of water and some foot stompin tunes
A nice warm meal and running water in my room.
Just to live the simple life would be ok
Not alot of money but to be with you everyday
I never knew how good life could be
Until the great spirit let me see.
C: I just want to grow old with you
spendin my days not wasting away
