LYRICS
Human Highway
+
Neil Young (Silver Fiddle Music, ASCAP)

I come down from the misty mountain
I got lost on the human highway
Take my head, refreshing fountain
Take my eyes from what they’ve seen

Take my head and change my mind
How could people get so unkind

I come down from the crooked mansion
I went looking for the DJ’s daughter
Since that day, I heard it mentioned
That my name is on the line

Now my name is on the line
How could people get so unkind

I come down from the misty mountain
I got lost on the human highway
Take my head, refreshing fountain
Take my eyes from what they’ve seen

Take my head and change my mind
How could people get so unkind

Better Than Staying
+
Rebecca & John Frazier (Music of Mahoggany, ASCAP/5 30 80 Publishing, ASCAP)

Where are you going, my precious little girl?
“Going across the mountain, I want to see more of the world
I hear a little bird a-singing, and it seems to be saying
To go anywhere is better than staying”

Where are you going, my sister and my friend?
“I want to follow this old gravel road, and see where it ends
I hear the highway calling and it seems to be saying
To go anywhere is better than staying”

Where are you going, dear brother, for so long?
There’s a wide track before you, do you hear a lonesome song?
I know the train’s a-calling, does it seem to be saying
To go anywhere is better than staying

Where are you going, dear husband so true?
“The river leads me down the mountain, I want to sail the ocean blue
I can hear the waves a-crashing, and they seem to be saying
To go anywhere is better than staying”

Where are you going, dear mother so beloved?
“I lie so still a weeping, though my soul is called above
I hear the angels singing, and I know what they’re saying
‘Come home to us, you will be staying’”

Where are you going, my precious little girl?
“Going across the mountain, I want to see more of the world
I hear a little bird a-singing and it seems to be saying
To go anywhere is better than staying”

When We Fall
+
Rebecca Frazier (Music of Mahoggany, ASCAP)

A lot of people, a lot of love
We still think we don’t get enough
Mirror mirror on the wall
Does it break when we fall

Make a new path to a mountain high
Gazing at the stars on a full moon night
Wishing I could fly like the blackest crow
Hoping that I’d float to the valley low

Run in circles in my new home
So much space for me to roam
Holding hands with the one I love
Reaching high for the clouds above

Innocence and no regrets
Riding toward a sweet sunset
Mirror mirror on the wall, does it break when we fall
La la la la la la la

In my time I ain’t seen much
Try to walk soft but my feet still touch
God gave gravity to keep me down
Put an apple on the tree to turn my head around

Reaching ripe fruit growing on the tree
Eyes getting wide cause I can see
All the bad that comes with the good
All the pain I never understood

Can you look past your sins
Can you win back your friends
Mirror mirror on the wall, does it break when we fall
La la la la la la la

Walk This Road
+
Rebecca & John Frazier (Music of Mahoggany, ASCAP/5 30 80 Publishing, ASCAP)

I want to walk this road with a friend
Why should I be alone ‘til the end
I want to walk your way
And be here throughout your days
I want to dream out loud about what’s around the bend

I want to hold your hand when we’re afraid
And we can laugh at all the joys we create
I’ll help you find your way
Through the darkness and the pain
So take my hand and walk me through the days

Don’t walk away, don’t give yourself to heartache
Make me your lover and your friend
Don’t go alone, don’t hide your heart in sorrow
When you’ve lost love, I’ll give all of mine to you

I want to be there when the sun sets after all
When life was long and we don’t have far to fall
Through the woven threads of time
I was yours and your were mine
When the shadows fade still walking side by side

And when the shadows fall I’ll still be by your side
Ain't Gonna Work Tomorrow
+
Traditional, Arranged and additional lyrics by Rebecca & John Frazier Music of Mahoggany, ASCAP/5 30 80 Publishing, ASCAP)

Chorus
I ain’t gonna work tomorrow
I ain’t gonna work next day
I ain’t gonna work tomorrow
For it may be a rainy day

I’m gonna leave this country
I’m gonna leave this world
I’m gonna leave this country
Lord I ain’t his one little girl

Chorus

Hang down my head in sorrow
Hang down my head and cry
Hang down my head in sorrow
As my darlin’ passes by

Chorus

Can’t you hear the banjo ringin’
Can’t you hear that lonesome sound
Can’t you see them pretty gals dancin’
Out on the cold cold ground

Chorus

I been round to old Montana
I been down to Nashville town
I’m gone to East Virginia
Gonna lay all my money down

Chorus
Morning & Night
+
Rebecca & John Frazier (Music of Mahoggany, ASCAP/5 30 80 Publishing, ASCAP)

You love me when I go to sleep
You love me when I wake up
You give me secrets to keep
You sing me songs that you make up

Chorus
You hold my hand when I cry
When I laugh you don’t ask me why
You always know what’s on my mind
And a thousand ways to make me smile

Of all the good friends in my life
You’re the one who’s there, morning and night
You know what I care about
You listen and you don’t give advice

Chorus

When I flew solo long ago
I kept thinking that I was free
Now I no longer go alone
And I feel freer than I ever thought I’d be

Chorus

Chorus


Love, Go Away From This House
+
Rebecca Frazier (Music of Mahoggany, ASCAP)

Please don’t knock on the window or on my door
Please don’t try to call me anymore
Love, go away from this house
I gave up my heart and there’s nothing for you now

Don’t try to sneak through my broken window pane
Don’t come at night when you think I’m not awake
Cause I’m lying here just trying not to think
I’ve closed up my heart and you ain’t welcome in

Chorus
I’m so tired of walkin’
My back is broke from carrying all this weight
A home without your love is what I’m gonna take

Well I’m a dead branch behind a dark black sky
I’m a fallen leaf waiting to die
I’m an empty house in a fallen neighborhood
You did your work, and you did it good

Chorus

Chorus

A life without your love is what I’ve gotta take

Clifftop
Darken Your Doorway
+
Rebecca Frazier (Music of Mahoggany, ASCAP)

Chorus
I won’t darken your doorway any longer
I can see that you’ve made up your mind
And though I’m surprised and I don’t understand
I won’t darken your doorway again

Funny how I feel in your way now
When you used to be happy to see me
A welcoming smile became a furrowed brow
There’s no need to tell me how you feel

It seems so simple to me dear
There’s no longer a spark in your eye
When I knock upon your front porch door
The look on your face doesn’t lie

Chorus

No need to get up from your chair, dear
I can let myself out just fine
I recall all the nights you would beg me to stay
And cross over the threshold one last time

Chorus

Chorus
40 Blues
Babe In Arms
+
Rebecca Frazier (Music of Mahoggany, ASCAP)

Babe in arms
Babe in arms
You gave me your heart and I gave you my love
Rocking you to and fro

The wind it blows hard and so cold
And I often long for you to hold
But you dance with closed eyes
And then say your goodbyes
You go your own way through dark skies

You leave me a broken heart
Well it’s all right, I’ll learn to be apart
Although I once dreamed you would spend life with me
So soon, you are on your journey

I wonder if I’ll ever rest
But how could I forgive and forget?
Forgive myself and forget your face
Make peace without you through long days

You were mine for a night
Held you close, held you tight
In my heart you’ll be running wild, running free
Dancing once more here with me
