Another day in the life of a stranger
Surrounded by four walls that can't be seen
He knows this dude that lives uptown and he delivers
He often calls him for that perfect dream
But oh, he's got his demons
And they stay right by his side
Through his everyday hell, yeah

He loves his wine and his pretty women
He buys them everything just to stay around
He's got it made cause his daddy's got a bundle
He seldom reaches out but there's no one to be found
Except oh, he's still got them demons
And they stay right by his side
In his man-made hell

Oh, he's got his demons
And they by his side
Another dar in the life of the lonely
All alone in a sold out crowd
He can always buy some cheap thrills with his money
His world of silence has become much too loud
But ho, don't forget them demons
They're still right by his side
Causing all kinds of hell, yeah

. . .


You know I hate to leave you babe
But I just can't waste my time....
Well you've got this jealous husband
And I'm far too young to die,
I must move on away from here
Just before the bullets fly

I've always been a gabler
Takin' chances all my life....
Always smashin' those love affairs
Just like shootin' dice,
I staged the game girl
That's what keeps me satisfied
And I can leave it in the nick of time
Just before the bullets fly

Solo

I lost my first bet
When I was twenty-one
Found myself in New Orleans
On the wrong end of a gun....
The stakes keep getting higher......
But somehow i Survive,
By knowin' when the need became
Just before the bullets fly
I'm knowing when the need became
Just before the bullets fly
I'm knowing when the need became
Just before the bullets fly

by W. Armstrong, W. Terrell & M. Daniels

What would I give, just for a few moments
What would I give , just to have you near
Tell me you will try, to slip away somehow
Oh, I need you darlin', I want to see you right now

Can you slip away, slip away, slipaway hey hey hey
Oh, I need you so

Now I know it's wrong, the things I ask you to do
But please belive me darlin', I don't mean to hurt you
But could you just slip away, without him knowin' you're gone
Then we could meet somewhere, somewhere where we're both not known

Can you slip away, slip away, slipaway hey hey hey
Oh, I need you so

Bridge:
Love, oh love, how sweet it is
The way you make me feel sometime
....darling, how sweet it is.

by D. toler, T. Colton & B. Waibel

He came from the streets, she came from the mountains
A faded star and an angel without wings,
Their passions flowed like a deep running river
They had nothing left to lose and everything to gain and he said

Let's make a garden said the thorn to the wild rose,
plant some seeds deep in the ground,
Let's make a garden said the thorn to the wild rose,
strong enough to hold us down

Seasons will change, we'll last forever we'll see the snow and the
falling of the leaves
High on the hill with the sky all around us, we'll watch it grow
from two wild seeds

Let's make a garden said the thorn to the wild rose,
plant some seeds deep in the ground,
Let's make a garden said the thorn to the wild rose,
where it's springtime all around

Solo

Our lives are hanging in the balance
Or they're dangling by a thread
A spark of life brought down from an angel
To raise the stranger from the dead
Once more we're cheating on the reaper
With all the gypsy in our souls
Cause I know there's a God up in heaven
Who must love rock and roll

Once again we sail home to Sarasota
As the ocean awash the gunwale
But she still keeps her head above water
Guess we're all gonna live to tell this tale

And here's to the you for always hangin' in
Without you there's no reason to go
I'd be lying face down in some river
Waiting on an angel to take me back home

Once again we sail home to Sarasota
with the ocean awash the gunwale
But she still keeps her head above water
Guess we're all gonna live to tell this tale

Solo:

Once again we sail home to Sarasota
with the ocean awash the gunwale
But she still keeps her head above water
Guess we're all gonna live to tell this tale

I've heard it said before,
That you don't care no more,
You just pick up tracks,
And don't look back,
And walk right out that door.

I tell my friends it's easy,
She's never on my mind.....
My life is so much better
Since that day I said good-bye

And I' tell myself I'm free
But I'm only foolin' me
Cause no matter what I do...
I can't get over you

Well I tried to hide my pain,
With a taste of fast lane,
But ain't no use... to shake you loose...
I still feel the same
I thought I could forget you
But that was just a lie,
I'm just not the same without you...
I don't even want to try....

And I' tell myself I'm free
But I'm only foolin' me
Cause no matter what I do...
I can't get over you
I can't get over you

SOLO:

BRIDGE:
I don't know how it started
I don't know where I stand
I just want to be back in your arms once again

And I' tell myself I'm free
But I'm only foolin' me
Cause no matter what I do...
I can't get over you
I can't get over you
I can't get over you

. . .


Sometimes it seems like yesterday
Other times more than a million years
Oh little girl sweeter than an angel
When I think of her I laugh,
And drown in my own tears

You draw your first breath so close to me
Now we've been apart for years and years

She can wash the land away, tides turning everyday,
All I really came to say is
I still love you my sweet Island

Maybe times will someday build a bridge for us
Somewhere father down the line; I know
But for you this;
to show you who's on my mind

She can wash the land away, tides turning everyday,
All I really came to say is
I still love you my sweet Island

Whatever they may say about my silence
Remember I'm an Island too
We're connected by more than an ocean
My blood runs in you

She can wash the land away, tides turning everyday,
All I really came to say is
I still love you my sweet Island

. . .


by G. Allman, J. Townsend & T. Heding
There was a time that I belived in you and everything you
told me I took for true
But that was then and this is now and things kepp changing

We are running when love is calling
It's just the fear, the fear of falling

We count our blessings as we count our friends
We count on love and it always ends
Much too soon as the world keeps on turnin'

We are running when love is calling
It's just the fear, the fear of falling

But I'll keep trying for that chance to have it all
Might even get lucky and find someone to prove me wrong
And break on through all these foolish fears of mine darlin'

We are running when love is calling
It's just the fear, the fear of falling
There just ain't no such thing as falling

. . .


by G. Allman, D. Toler & T. Colton

It's five o'clock, thank God it's Friday
Anticipation's drivin' me wild
One more hour is, one more eternity...
I can't wait just to see your smile
We can dance out on the high wire
Up so high we can't look down
Close your eyes, dive in the deep end
We'll go the distance baby, one more time

Let's play, Night Games
Let's do, some nighttimes things

Bright lights shine in the starlight,
We're drawn like moth to a flame
Fly straight into the candel...
Oh, baby here we go again

Let's play, Night Games
Let's do, some nighttimes things

Every Hungry Woman
by Gregg Allman

Yeah --- Sad eyed woman
boogie 'til the break of dawn
Yeah --- Long a-bout the break of day --- Yeah
oh--- your man has up and gone---

You got 13 lovely children
No proud father knocking at your door
Yeah--- but every hungry woman
has been in your place before

Yeah --- the doctor keep (or "kept") calling
woah -- found you'd fall-en
(alternate lyrics: found you bawlin')
Yeah -- you backed him in the corner
oh --- you're doing what you wanna

You got 14 lovely children
No proud father knocking at your door
Yeah--- but every hungry woman
has been in your place before

*** Guitar Solo ***

You got 15 lovely children
No proud father knocking at your door
Yeah--- but every hungry woman
has been in your place before

Yeah --- the doctor keep (or "kept") calling
woah -- found you'd fall-en
(alternate lyrics: found you bawlin')
Yeah -- you backed him in the corner
oh --- you're doing what you wanna

You got 16 lovely children
No proud father knocking at your door
Yeah--- but every hungry woman
has been in your place before

Oh-- yeah
Sad eyed woman

One Way Out


Ain't but one way out baby, Lord I just can't go out the door.
Ain't but one way out baby, and Lord I just can't go out the door.
Cause there's a man down there, might be your man I don't know.

Lord you got me trapped woman, up on the second floor;
If I get by this time I won't be trapped no more.
So raise your window baby, and I can ease out soft and slow.
And lord, your neighbors, no they won't be
Talking that stuff that they don't know.

Lord, I'm foolish to be here in the first place,
I know some man gonna walk in and take my place.
Ain't no way in the world, I'm going out that front door
Cause there's a man down there, might be your man I don't know.
Cause there's a man down there, might be your man I don't know.
Cause there's a man down there,

Lord, it just might happen to be your man...
Lord, it just a might be your man,
Mmm-mm-mmm-mm...
Lord, it just a might be your man,
Oh baby, I just don't know..
