North-Easter 03:44
North-Easter You know the North-Easter brings the snow Pack up your bags and go, go go go You gotta fly, as far away as you can It makes a meal of a hungry man Take your belongings and your wife and kids by your side Make sure they're buckled up for the ride Get out of here, fortune never favoured the brave Or you'll be spinning in an early grave Summer's gone, dwindled into the past Those autumn memories couldn't last And just when you were searching For the welcome of a better day North-Easter gonna blow you away Get out of bed, and get yourself on the run You can't shoot a hurricane with a gun Load up your truck, put your pedal to the floor North-Easter doesn't want you here no more And just when you were searching For the welcome of a better day North-Easter gonna blow you away And just when you were searching For the welcome of a better day North-Easter gonna blow you away And just when you were searching For the welcome of a better day North-Easter gonna blow you away

Atlantic Highway Blues Gonna surf til the day is through Gonna drive til my hands turn blue I’m gonna set sail for a course so true On the Atlantic Highway with you Gonna eat sausages and beans out the can Coz you know I’m a born again man And I’m gonna run as fast as I can Way down the Atlantic Highway Gonna surf til the day is through Gonna drive til my hands turn blue Gonna set sail for a course so true On the Atlantic Highway with you I'm gonna run across the sands to the shore Til the salt makes my eyes go sore And I’m never gonna work no more Gonna surf til the day is through Gonna drive til my hands turn blue Gonna set sail for a course so true On the Atlantic Highway with you Gonna eat chicken and chips in the bus Coz you know I don't like no fuss And it'll be just the two of us Way down the Atlantic Highway with you Gonna run across the sands to the shore Til the salt makes my eyes go sore And I’m never gonna work no more Never never gonna work no more No I'm never gonna work no more On the Atlantic Highway with you On the Atlantic Highway with you On the Atlantic Highway with you Way down the Atlantic Highway

Summer Song 04:13
Summer Song In a momentary lapse of reason You changed the weather, changed the season You sang out clear, it won’t be long Until we hear our summer song Past winter’s ruin we sailed our boats on Until we reached tall reeds on the seashore We knew our fear here did not belong We sang out clear our summer song Aaaaahh And now we swim soft shades of shadow The victim’s quote we shall not remember The ships we sail will carry us on We sing out clear our summer song

Once There Was A Sweet Way Once there was a way to get back home I didn’t know then, and I still don’t know Once there was a way to get myself free Don’t you know your freedom lies with me? Don’t you know your freedom lies with me? Don’t you know your freedom lies with me? Once there was a way to be on my own I didn’t like it then, and I still don’t now Once there was a way that I could be free But don’t you know honestly that could never be? Don’t you know that honestly that could never be? Don't you know, really, that could never be? Once there was a way to get back home I didn’t know then, and I still don’t know I looked to the north and I looked to the south Couldn’t get home to Cockermouth Couldn’t get back home to Cockermouth Well I travelled within and I travelled without Only to find out what I found out You may come from the north, you may come from the south But when you find the way, the way finds you out If you’ve found the way my friend, you’d better watch out Coz if you've found the way, the way finds you out Once there was a way to get back home I looked and I found, and now I know Cause home is a place where you stick around Home is a place where your love is found Freedom and love, by sticking around Freedom and love, by sticking around
