1. Chaos (written by Les Dudek)

Instrumental
2. Delta Breeze
(Words & Music by Les Dudek)

(INTRO SECTION)

Now the day may come, and maybe you’ll like it
The night may pass, as we all fall into the sea
Well the dreams we dream, they might seem kind of funny
And the life we live, may just be our destiny

Delta breeze, deep in my heart, start sending my thoughts to wonder
Delta breeze, weigh in my mind, gave the memory something to ponder
Well we’re so all alone, in a world without love, hope you still pray
And with any kind of luck, we just might make it one more day

(INTRO SECTION)

What we really have, on this earth is each other
Might want to live each day, as if it may be the last
I’m being true to myself, and to my sisters and brothers
Don’t be so sure about the future, from the present forecast

Delta breeze, deep in my heart, start sending my thoughts to wonder
Delta breeze, weigh in my mind, gave the memory something to ponder
Well we’re so all alone, in a world without love, hope you still prey
And with any kind of luck, we just might make it one more day

(SOLO SECTION)

Delta breeze, deep in my heart, start sending my thoughts to wonder
Delta breeze, weigh in my mind, gave the memory something to ponder
Well we’re so all alone, in a world without love, hope you still pray
And with any kind of luck, we just might make it one more day

3. High On the Water
(Words & Music by Les Dudek)

(INTRO SECTION)

Maybe I forgot the promise that I’d made to myself
Living life to the fullest and leaving no regrets
Momma’s words still reign, reminding me again
And I’M STILL HIGH ON THE WATER

Church never saw me Sunday, but God is still in my heart
Life is hardest on Mondays, no matter what time you start
Momma’s words still reign, reminding me again
And I’M STILL HIGH ON THE WATER
Yes, I’M STILL HIGH ON THE WATER

Well the same thing goes, everybody knows,
When you’re swimming in a bottle of sin
The sun don’t shine if the monkey rides, and he’s calling,
He’s calling you back again

(SOLO SECTION)

I’M STILL HIGH ON THE WATER
Yes, I’M STILL HIGH ON THE WATER

Well the same thing goes, everybody knows
When you’re trying so hard to win
The sun don’t shine if the monkey rides, and he’s calling
He’s calling you back again

I never found it easy, and you probably don’t even care
But there ain’t no logical reason, why we’re even here
Momma’s words still reign, reminding me again
I’M STILL HIGH ON THE WATER
Yes, I’M STILL HIGH ON THE WATER
I’M STILL HIGH ON THE WATER
Yes, I’M STILL HIGH ON THE WATER

4. Wide Open in the Wind
(Words and Music by Les Dudek)

(GUITAR RIFF TWO TIMES)

There’s a southern town near the Big Green Swamp, where cycles roam by the cypress stumps
Hear that rumble in the Dixie air, V-twins raising hell out there
Ain’t looking for trouble, just living to ride, wind in our face, bugs in our eyes
We’re just a bunch of two-wheeling bums, so look out people 'cause here we come
WIDE OPEN IN THE WIND
FREE FROM WHEREVER WE JUST BEEN
WIDE OPEN IN THE WIND
OUT ALL NIGHT, BACK ABOUT DAY LIGHT

(GUITAR RIFF ONE TIME)

I told you before, I’ll tell you again, gotta have some fun, before it all ends
If we move too quick, we’ll send you a text, tell you where we might be headed next
All leathered up, ready to ride, looking for love from a Dyna Wide Glide
Lightning fast, our thunder is sweet, smoking tires up and down the streets
WIDE OPEN IN THE WIND
FREE FROM WHEREVER WE JUST BEEN
WIDE OPEN IN THE WIND
OUT ALL NIGHT, BACK ABOUT DAYLIGHT

(GUITAR RIFF TWO TIMES)

(SOLO VERSE)

WIDE OPEN IN THE WIND
FREE FROM WHEREVER WE JUST BEEN
WIDE OPEN IN THE WIND
OUT ALL NIGHT, BACK ABOUT DAYLIGHT

(GUITAR RIFF TWO TIMES)

WE’RE WIDE OPEN IN THE WIND
FREE FROM WHEREVER WE JUST BEEN
WIDE OPEN IN THE WIND
OUT ALL NIGHT, BACK ABOUT DAYLIGHT (GUITAR RIFF OUT)

5. I Told You That
(Words & Music by Les Dudek)

(INTRO SECTION)

First came to mind – I think we had this chat
Well I told you then – I thought I told you that
Yes it seems to me, well – I told you that – I TOLD YOU THAT
I didn’t mix my words with you baby - I told you that
I TOLD YOU THAT
Praise the Lord – yes I’m so glad to say
We’re still living this old life – We made it one more day
Yes it seems to me, yeah – I told you that – I TOLD YOU THAT
I didn’t mix my words with you baby – I told you that
I TOLD YOU THAT

(MUSIC BRIDGE)

I told you that – I TOLD YOU THAT
Yes I told you that – I TOLD YOU THAT

(SOLO SECTION)

Every now and then – Way back in your mind
Are some familiar words – About the end of time
But it seems to me, yeah – I told you that
I TOLD YOU THAT
I didn’t mix my words with you baby – I told you that
I TOLD YOU THAT
Yes it seems to me, well – I told you that
I TOLD YOU THAT
I didn’t mix my words with you baby - I told you that
I TOLD YOU THAT
Yes I told you that
I TOLD YOU THAT
Well I told you that
I TOLD YOU THAT
Yes I told you that
I TOLD YOU THAT

6. Time Will Tell
(Words & Music by Les Dudek)

(INTRO SECTION, TWICE AROUND)

Are we wrong to question, do we even dare
LORD KNOWS, TIME WILL TELL

Is there a reason, should we really care
LORD KNOWS, TIME WILL TELL

Did you get the message, from the white wing dove
LORD KNOWS, TIME WILL TELL

Or was it all for nothing, did you miss out on love
LORD KNOWS, TIME WILL TELL

Sometimes we wake up, drowning in a sea of despair
HEAR THE WINDS COME, BLOW AWAY THE FEAR
Living in a whirlwind, as creatures of mankind
EVEN RAINBOWS, LEAVE THEIR SHADOWS BEHIND

(SOLO SECTION)

Were we bad for asking, do we even dare
LORD KNOWS, TIME WILL TELL

Or was it really for nothing, should we even care
LORD KNOWS, TIME WILL TELL

Sometimes we wake up, drowning in a sea of despair
HEAR THE WINDS COME, BLOW AWAY THE FEAR
Living in a whirlwind, as creatures of mankind
EVEN RAINBOWS, LEAVE THEIR SHADOWS BEHIND
LORD KNOWS, TIME WILL TELL (three times at end)

7. One White Lie
(Words & Music by Les Dudek)

(INTRO GUITAR LINE SECTION)

Sad and lonely, I can feel ya, even though you’re miles away
Hearts are aching, from the grieving, with the words one should never say
Finally over, the deceiving, true believing left behind
Couldn’t make it, shouldn’t fake it, some day you’ll see, in time

(GUITAR LINE SECTION)

The chain is broken, truth has spoken, everyday brings the memories
What was something, was really nothing but a candle flickering in the breeze
Stop pretending, the movie ended, what once lived, has now died
False devotions, mixed emotions, someday you’ll see, in time

Even though we chose a different road, living for tomorrow
I could never harbor too much pain, or live with all the sorrow

How was I suppose to make amends, if we couldn’t even be good friends
Baby this is your lullaby
Feel it’s only right to set you free, give you a reason it must be
So you won’t have to wonder why, with one white lie

(SOLO SECTION)

Even though we chose a different road, living for tomorrow
I could never harbor too much pain, or live with all the sorrow

How was I suppose to make amends, if we couldn’t even be good friends
Baby this is your lullaby
Feel it’s only right to set you free, give you a reason it must be
So you won’t have to wonder why, with one white lie

(GUITAR LINE SECTION)

Just one white lie, Baby please don’t cry

8. Take My Money
(Words & Music by Les Dudek)

(INTRO SLIDE GUITAR)

Before we pledge allegiance, time to make a stand
Politicians taxing everything they can
TAKE MY MONEY
Squeeze my wallet dry
It’s time the people had their say, but their gonna take it anyway
TAKE MY MONEY

Operate the hours, function for the man
Give my last silver dollar back to Uncle Sam
TAKE MY MONEY
All those green presidents
At the end of the week my monies spent, in one hand and out it went
TAKE MY MONEY

Now evil’s got a brand new face,
It won’t be long till he owns the place
Election time, the devils run, he took my guns
TAKE MY MONEY
Please don’t bleed me dry,
With no conclusion who’s to say
Wanted with a price to pay,
TAKE MY MONEY

(SLIDE GUITAR SOLO)

Expect the misconception, by the bringer of delights
Bamboozled by the trickster and keeper of your rights
TAKE MY MONEY
Squeeze my pockets dry
With no commission either way, paying dues till the rainy day
TAKE MY MONEY
TAKE MY MONEY
TAKE MY MONEY
TAKE MY MONEY
TAKE MY MONEY
TAKE MY MONEY

9. Trouble With the Law
(Words & Music by Les Dudek)

(INTRO SECTION)

Early morning shake down, police at the door,
Can’t imagine who done wrong or what their looking for,
Could I please make my one and only call?
Well it seems like I’m always,
I’m always in trouble with the law

Well let’s go visit downtown, jailhouse full of fools,
If I ain’t who they’re looking for I better give them clues,
Captain said just tell me, what I saw
Well it seems like I’m always,
I’m always in trouble with the law

(GUITAR SOLO) (REPEAT)

(BRAKE DOWN)

It seems like I’m always,
I’m always in trouble with the law, yeah

(GUITAR SOLO) (REPEAT)

It seems like I’m always,
I’m always in trouble with the law
Seems like I’m always,
I’m always in trouble with the law
Seems like I’m always,
I’m always in trouble with the law

10. Take
(Words & Music by Les Dudek)

(INTRO SECTION)

Something funny in the air tonight, something wicked, ain’t alright
Putting moves on innocence, spreading lies and discontent
WHO’S gonna save you now, WHO’S gonna show you how
WHO’S gonna make them pay, WHO’S gonna show you the way

Somebody took control, somebody wants to take your soul
When they TAKE, when they TAKE it from you baby

He said, I’ll take you there, I’LL TAKE YOU THERE,
I’ll take you there, I’LL TAKE YOU THERE,
I’ll take you there, I’LL TAKE YOU THERE,
TAKE, go on and TAKE,
TAKE, go on and TAKE

Somebody wants to take your soul, somebody wants to take control
When they TAKE, when they take it from you baby

He said, I’ll take you there, I’LL TAKE YOU THERE,
I’ll take you there, I’LL TAKE YOU THERE,
I’ll take you there, I’LL TAKE YOUTHERE,
TAKE, go on and TAKE,
TAKE, go on and TAKE… TAKE

(SOLO SECTION)

Somebody wants to take control, somebody wants to steal your soul
When they TAKE, when they take it from you baby

He said, I’ll take you there, I’LL TAKE YOU THERE,
I’ll take you there, I’LL TAKE YOU THERE,
I’ll take you there, I’LL TAKE YOUTHERE,
TAKE, go on and TAKE,
TAKE, go on, TAKE…
TAKE, TAKE, TAKE, TAKE, TAKE, TAKE,
TAKE, TAKE, TAKE, TAKE, TAKE, TAKE

11. These Are the Good Old Days
    (Words & Music by Les Dudek)

(INTRO SECTION)

THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS,
THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS,
THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS, RIGHT NOW

Feels like life has had its way with me,
Looks like life chooses our destiny
Well I must admit it’s all been rather fun,
But it won’t be long until this life is done
So I’m leaving my love and memory with this song

Feels like time is catching up with me,
Looks like time finally sets us free
I’ve been chasing all the minutes everyday,
Watching those I love pass away
So I’m leaving my love and memory with this song

THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS,
THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS,
THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS, RIGHT NOW

Feels like love has had it’s way with me,
Looks like love has given all to see
Yes I had my fill but never found the one,
Was always on the road and on the run
So I’m leaving my love and memory with this song

THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS,
THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS
THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS, RIGHT NOW

(SOLO VERSE)

Hope this life has been good to you
Prey that time has been enough, too
Well I’ll miss the wind and sun on my face,
Riding on this rock, way out in space
So I’m leaving my love and memory with this song

THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS,
THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS
THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS, RIGHT NOW….(REPEAT)
