Track Name: Road to Nowhere
Saddle up, stomp the gas
Cross the tracks and don’t look back
We’re headed down the old dirt road
To where they make the liquid gold
It’s a place beyond compare
We’re driving down the road to nowhere

A rusty fence and lean-to barn
Full of life and backwoods charm
It’s not a place police should go
They’ll never find their way back home
But we’ll tip some whiskey in a prayer
We’re driving down the road to nowhere

Now it’s the kind of place where dreams come true
And giving directions is the only taboo
The moonshine flows like a river through the trees
Just like the days of memory

Pass the bottle, leave the glass
Make sure you fill your flask
You’ll never find a better brew
Cross the land or yonder blue
Those other drinks will never compare
We’re driving down the road to nowhere

Saddle up, stomp the gas
Cross the tracks and don’t look back
We’re headed down the old dirt road
To where they make the liquid gold
It’s a place beyond compare
(Hang on we're almost there!)
We’re driving down the road to nowhere
Track Name: Hie-A-Lie
Hie-a-lie-a-lie
Raise your glass to the sky
There's only so much time for us
To drink before we die
Tip your bartender well cause
You may see him in hell
Hie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie

At the tavern you can say
All the things you'd wish away
And never be worried about a fight
There's no cover at the door
And your welcome all the more
When the whiskey get's poured all night

So pour another beer
And be happy that your here
There's no reason to be down tonight
Let the whiskey in your jar
And the smell of cheap cigar
Make you feel that everything's allright

Hie-a-lie-a-lie
Raise your glass to the sky
There's only so much time for us
To drink before we die
Tip your bartender well cause
You may see him in hell
Hie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie

So pour another glass
And smoke your grass
Put your arm around a lass and drink away
Every tavern in this town
Will let you buy another round
To help you spread liquid cheer all day

So pour another beer
And be happy that your here
There's no reason to be down tonight
Let the whiskey in your jar
And the smell of cheap cigar
Make you feel that everything's allright

Hie-a-lie-a-lie
Raise your glass to the sky
There's only so much time for us
To drink before we die
Tip your bartender well cause
You may see him in hell
Hie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie
Hie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie-a-lie
Track Name: Man Who Can't Get Drunk
Not so long ago in this bar that I know
I met a man who had his world turned upside down
For many long years he’d enjoyed drinking beer
And his binges were the talk of the town

Then one night at the bar, he’s drinking whiskey by the jar
But that old familiar feeling didn’t come
He stared in dismay as that whiskey did betray him
Bottle after bottle but he never got drunk

Cause he’s the man who just can’t get drunk no more
So fella, just what are you drinking that for?
Whiskey ain’t the same and a beer is too tame
When you’re the man who just can’t get drunk no more

Well he told me that he tried to get drunk every night
All the whiskey, wine and beer he could afford
But nothing seemed to work and he told me with a smirk
That making good decisions all the time is a bore

Cause he’s the man who just can’t get drunk no more
So fella, just what are you drinking that for?
Whiskey ain’t the same and a beer is too tame
When you’re the man who just can’t get drunk no more

He made money for a time taking bets
From all the drunks who wanted to put him to the test
And he found out very quickly
That the girls just ain’t so pretty
At last call
When you’re still seeing straighter than the rest

Cause he’s the man who just can’t get drunk no more
So fella, just what are you drinking that for?
Whiskey ain’t the same and a beer is too tame
When you’re the man who just can’t get drunk no more

So the moral of this tale
Is enjoy your your wine and ale
Anytime you can
While you can!
Track Name: Whiskey in the Morning
Throw another bottle at the door
I've only got five more
I'm sitting here with my only friend
I'm partying alone at 6 AM

Because it's whiskey in the morning
To try to make it through the afternoon
Try as I might I just can't fight
The way I feel about what I did to you

Throw another record on the wheel
Crack another bottle break the seal
Let the music usher my descent
I'm partying alone at 6 AM

Because it's whiskey in the morning
To try to make it through the afternoon
Try as I might I just can't fight
The way I feel about what I did to you

Whiskey in the morning
To try to make it through the afternoon
Try as I might I just can't fight
The way I feel about what I did to you
It was the memory of the day that I killed you

Whiskey in the morning
To try to make it through the afternoon
Try as I might I just can't fight
The way I feel about what I did to you
It was the memory of the day that I killed you.
Track Name: Root and the Faraway
Hey-ey-ah
The root and the faraway
Hey-ey-ah
The leaf and the grey
Hey-ey-ah
The root and the faraway
The fearless will dream
Of the end of today

The root cannot dream
Of a land all in green
Yet it stakes the canopy strong
A man in the world
Given visions to hold
Only breaks that which he belongs

What's in a word
While hanging from a string
Yet silence can hurt
So we sing

Hey-ey-ah
The root and the faraway
Hey-ey-ah
The leaf and the grey
Hey-ey-ah
The root and the oh so faraway
The fearless will dream
Of the end of today

A vision revealed
Bare flesh in a field
Is it near or so faraway
The sights that we've seen
Contextually obscene
Telling nature we must disobey

Standing up
When we are called
Or living a life
At a crawl

Hey-ey-ah
The root and the faraway
Hey-ey-ah
The leaf and the grey
Hey-ey-ah
The root and the oh so faraway
The fearless will dream
Of the end of today

The root cannot dream
Of the visions of green
So close, so far away

Hey-ey-ah
The root and the faraway
Hey-ey-ah
The leaf and the grey
Hey-ey-ah
The root and the so faraway
The fearless will dream
Of the end of today
The fearless will dream
Of the end of today
Track Name: Best Day of the Year
Today is the best day of the year

Find a friend they ain’t too far
Drink the whiskey in your jar
Watch the girls dance on the bar
Today is the best day of the year

Today is the best day of the year
We’ve got everyone we care about right here
We know the bartender’s name
He treats everyone the same
And a round always gets a little cheer
Today is the best day of the year

Now yesterday was fine
We had the time of our lives
And tomorrow we’ll be right back here
But my favorite time by far
Is this moment with you all
As we sit back and drink and cheer

Find a friend up at the bar
To put more whiskey in your jar
Cause last call just ain’t that far
Today is the best day of the year

Find a friend they ain’t too far
Drink the whiskey in your jar
Watch those girls dance on the bar
Today is the best day of the year
