Track Name: Built For Glory
(Music and lyrics by Terry Taylor)

I found an old man lying on the street
thought I'd do my good deed
I wrapped my coat around him
and gave him food to eat
With labored breath he struggled
but his eyes held heaven's light
He whispered 'Young man don't feel bad for me,
it will all work out alright'

Chorus
I was built for glory
I was made to last
God formed these feet to walk golden streets
when this hard life is past
Say "he's doin' well on the
other side" If anybody asks
say I was built for glory
I was made to last

He said I've been a Texas ranger
and I've been a railroad man
Lost two sons to consumption
Lost my money in a get rich scam
Buried my wife fifteen years ago
that's when I took to the road
I'm too crippled now to walk again
but I'll walk those streets of gold

Chorus

I asked "What's your name?"
He shook his head, said "It don't really matter
I'm just another poor soul out on the street
whose rewards in the great hereafter
and Jesus been a friend of mine
when all others passed me by
but He led you here so I could say
these words before I die" yeah

Chorus

The old man held me by the hand
and sighed his final breath
Now his spirit is in heaven
while his body is at rest
Today I'm makin it my mission
to help others understand
We're all fish out of water
Strangers in a foreign land

Chorus
We were built for glory
We were made to last
God formed our feet to walk golden streets
when this hard life is past
It's time to make your peace with God
cause this life's over fast
and we were built for glory
We were made to last
Track Name: Up In The Morning
(Terry Taylor)

Daybreak I'm half awake
Today is all there is
(I'll be) Out the door, but not before
I've kissed the wife and kids
I've whistled in the dark
I've known the broken heart
I've seen the Red Sea part
(and now) This sunlight just might
Turn strangers into friends
Surprise for sore eyes
Another place I've never been

Might feel the old Earth shake
Could miss that lucky break
But I can hardly wait
To get

Up in the Morning
A new world is forming
Behind these tired eyes
I'm here and I'm breathing
Feel my heart beating
Lucky to be alive

We'll see, could be
The check is in the mail
(Wake up, life's too short for you to stay in bed)
(or I'm) On the slide that ends inside
The belly of the whale
(Get up, brush the cobwebs from your sleepy head)

I've know the answered prayer
I've thought no one was there
It seem to clear the air, when I get

Up in the morning. . .
I don't care if I see rain or the blue sky
I only know I've survived
Surprise
Yeah. . .
Track Name: Pray Where You Are
(Terry Taylor and Lost Dogs)

In the submarines and tanks
In the S and L's and banks
In the cancer wards, the prisons and the bars
On the earth and on the moon
In the closet, in your room
In the flop houses, the think tanks and the farms
To the salesman forever trying to sell
To the faithful daughter walking to the well

CHORUS
Oh, pray where you are
Pray where you are
In the fields and in the factories
There's no limits, rules or boundaries
At work or school or driving in your car
Pray where you are

In the strip joints, in the church
On a desperate lost child search
On the airplanes and the backroads and the rails
On the blacktops, on the beach
Down a sewer and up a creek
In the penthouses, the gulags and the jails
To the criminal with no one left to con
To the movie star whose day has come and gone

CHORUS

To the junky with his back against the wall
To the lawman as he breaks another law
In the desert, off the shore
In peacetime and in war
In the pentagon, the court rooms and the malls
In the tents and in the caves
At the truckstops, by the graves
In our hopes and fears and struggles great and small
To the corner bum that no one seems to hear
To the president who prays for four more years

Pray where you are. . .
Track Name: The Last Testament of Angus Shane
(Music by Gene Eugene, Lyrics by Terry Taylor)

In the morning they'll hang me
For a crime I ain't done
I confess I'm a sinner
But I've never killed no one

Lord be with my children
And dear Sarah my wife
Comfort their sorrows
Oh, I've loved them more than life

I've read the good book
Found comfort and peace
I'll not fear - even though death is near
Still I would do anything
I would give anything
To go back home
Home sweet home

I'm a ghost in a daydream
Unfettered and free
Pass right through these fences
My sweet Sarah runs to me

Worked hard for a living
Was honest but poor
Paid my debts - and I have few regrets
Still I would give anything
I would do anything
To see my home
Home sweet home
Home sweet home
Home sweet home

I pray for the fathers
The husbands and friends
False accused
Whose last requests were refused
They cry: I would do anything
I would give anything
To see my home
Home sweet home
Track Name: Red, White And Blue
(Terry Taylor)

Well, the worst that I could get there
Was the lead in my gut
But the worst that you can give me
Is this lead in my cup
I might be all washed up
But I'm a pretty good man
Sure, I'm hard as a nail
But I will sell you the blood on my hands

I'm looking at you
(Tell me what do you see)
I'm looking at you
(And I won't go away)
In the light of the star spangled evening
In the name of the red white and blue

My Daddy said "A man has
Got to fight to be free"
Tucked his slogans in the bed
There with my brothers and me
He'd be prouder now
If I had never come home
I wear the shoes and the clothes
And the crown of the soldier unknown

I'm looking at you. . .

You say give me a break
I say show me you're broken
My lame and legless comrades have spoken
Say jump in a lake
I say you got to be jokin'
Where I come from the lake is smokin'

I will labor for your wages
For the cash of the realm
I will tell you all my stories
You can write em down
But you can save your tears
For the names on the wall
I'm a living reminder that
Pride comes before a fall

I'm looking at you. . .
Track Name: Breathe Deep
(Music and lyrics by Terry Taylor)

Politicians, morticians, Philistines, homophobes
Skinheads, Dead heads, tax evaders, street kids
Alcoholics, workaholics, wise guys, dim wits
Blue collars, white collars, war mongers, peace nicks

Chorus
Breathe deep
Breathe deep the Breath of God
Breathe deep
Breathe deep the Breath of God

Suicidal's, rock idols, shut-ins, drop outs
Friendless, homeless, penniless and depressed
Presidents, residents, foreigners and aliens
Dissidents, feminists, xenophobes and chauvinists

Chorus

Evolutionists, creationists, perverts, slum lords
Dead-beats, athletes, Protestants and Catholics
Housewives, neophytes, pro-choice, pro-life
Misogynists, monogamists, philanthropists, blacks and whites

Chorus

Police, obese, lawyers, and government
Sex offenders, tax collectors, war vets, rejects
Atheists, Scientists, racists, sadists
Biographers, photographers, artists, pornographers

Chorus

Gays and lesbians, demagogues and thespians
The disabled, preachers, doctors and teachers
Meat eaters, wife beaters, judges and jurys
Long hair, no hair, everybody everywhere!

Chorus
Track Name: Bad Indigestion
(Terry Taylor)

Twinkie's were a defense
For a murder binge
The killer had a high sugar count
But now he's on the mend
He sold his soul to the hostess
She turned his brain to mush
The lawyer said "sure, he
Killed 'em judge. It was just
A sugar rush!"

Fat on the bacon
Wool on the lamb
Flies in the ointment
Murder in the ham
Hardened hearts and arteries
Salt block in the Spam
Lord save us all from this
Bad Indigestion

Well, would we do the things we do
If there weren't poison in our blood
Would we hurt our fellow man
While consuming all this crud
Break our vows
Go to war
Put mankind to shame
If a chemical imbalance
Weren't coursing through our veins

Fat on the bacon
Wool on the lamb
Butter on the biscuits
Grease in the pan
Dyes in the candy
Tubas in the band
Lord save us all from this bad indigestion

The god of our benefits is
The great horn O' plenty (Cornucopia)
Moves it's great vegetable hand
Puts a little fruit in all of our baskets
Helps us function better in the can

Montezuma's revenge has
Got us on the run
Double meat velveeta cheese
Between two hot cross buns
Take seltzer and a prune
Pepto Bismal and a Tum
And look into the crap we eat
You'll find a smoking gun
Track Name: Rocky Mountain Mines
(Terry Taylor)

Some say there's ghosts in the hills
And they're black as the coal
And voices they scream in the night
From the deep dark below
There was poor Ivy and Scratch
And friends too many to name
Who were caught in a thundering landslide
And there they'll remain

And I cry "Daddy, oh Dad please don't go"
But he won't be coming home no
And mother, dear mom don't you know
I'm feeling so old and alone
'Cause I'm the son next in line
For the black lung dyin'
And just a few come back
From the Rocky Mountain mines

We're much too poor to escape
The weight of the earth
In tunnels and dust and fear
We will measure our worth
Here's our bones for the soil
Our blood for the land
Our souls for sweet Jesus
Our bodies be damned

And I cry. . .

Well sometimes I wonder
Where my Daddy's gone
But I know he's gone to the wilderness
And he ain't comin' home
Then sometimes I get to wondering
When it'll be my turn to lie down
In that cold dark place, Lord
Down under the ground

(Traditional)

It's said the mark of Cain
Is on the miners head
And it don't wash with lye soap
'Til he's good and he's dead
I saw my Daddy wave
From the top of the hill
He said "Come along, son"
I say "Soon I will"
Track Name: Close But No Cigar
(Terry Taylor)

Close but no cigar
I nearly won her heart
I got so close but then my whole world
Fell apart
I thought we were in love
We came so far
Now she's with someone else not me
Close but no cigar

Last night I kissed her lips
Just like before
But it was in her eyes
She wanted something more
I never said the words I love you
Almost had it all
But I dropped the ball
And she walked right out the door

Close but no cigar
I nearly won her heart
I got so close but then my whole world
Fell apart
I thought we were in love
We came so far
Now she's with someone else not me
Close but no cigar

I had to live without
What might have been
He made his play
Now she's with him
I'll bet he tells her that he loves her
Well heaven knows
That I came this close
But I won't have that chance again

Close but no cigar.....
Track Name: Why Is The Devil Red?
(Music and lyrics by Lost Dogs)

Why is the Devil red?
Why ain't the Devil blue?
Why is the Devil red?
Why is the Devil you?

You give the Devil a pitchfork
You give the Devil horns
You give the Devil sulfur
You give the Devil corns
Does he look like Robert DiNiro
With big long fingernails?
Does he make you dance like Charo?
Or sing like Jerry Vale?

Who's that lookin' like an angel of light?
Who's that dressed in a gown of white?
Who's that saying everything's all right?
Who's that grinning in the dead of night?

Why is the Devil red?
Why is the Devil red?

You give the Devil hot breath
You put him on a tower
You give the Devil about 15 toes
You give him his Devil power

Who's that lookin' like an angel of light?
Who's that dressed in a gown of white?
Who's that saying everything's all right?
Who's that grinning in the dead of night?

Who's that lookin' like an angel of light?
Who's that dressed in a gown of white?
Who's that saying everything's all right?
Who's that grinning in the dead of night?

Why is the Devil red?
Track Name: No Ship Coming In
(Terry Taylor)

It's all breaking down
Crushed into the ground
But I will love you forever

It's falling apart
Hopeless and dark
But we're gonna see it
Through together

Caught in a landslide
Earthquakes and high tides
It's gonna be a rough ride
But I'll stay by your side

By grace we remain
With hands in the flame
But I will love you forever

Times may be hard
We're crippled and scarred
But we're gonna see it through together
(we're gonna see it through)

Dreams of a lifetime
Way past the deadline
We're pushing up an incline
But I believe we'll be just fine

No money to spend
(hard times are comin' again)
No ship comin' in
(We're here through the thick and the thin)
But we're gonna see it through together

Caught in a landslide
Earthquakes and high tides
It's gonna be a rough ride
But I'll stay by your side
It's all breaking down
(Times might be getting too hard)
Crushed into the ground
(Maybe we're crippled and scarred
But I will love you forever
No money to spend
No ship coming in
But we're gonna see it
Through together
Track Name: Jimmy
(Gene Eugene)

Long time, no see
I know it's been a while
I'm glad you're doing O.K.
You know me, anyway

I've been somewhere
I've been everywhere
I've been nowhere
And you've been on the road
You with your heavy load

Crazy Eights, Go Fish
I made a pond, remember that?
You asked if I was happy
I wondered "Were you sad?"

Long time no see
I know it's been awhile
You sound like you're
Doing well
Jimmy I can tell

Nurses aides and magazines
It's late, it's time to go
How glad I was to hear that day
They sent you home

Now I'm tied up
And I'm busy
I'm busy
But I'll come over soon
We'll get some Chinese food
I'd like that wouldn't you?
Track Name: If It Be Your Will
(Leonard Cohen)

If it be Your will
That I speak no more
Let my voice be still
As it was before
I will speak no more
I will abide until
I am spoken for
If it be Your will

If it be your will
That a voice be true
From this broken hill
I will sing to you
From this broken hill
All Your praises they will sing
If it be Your will
To let me sing

If it be Your will
If there is a choice
Let the rivers fill
Let the hills rejoice
Let your mercy spill
On all these burning heats in hell
If it be Your will
To make us well
And draw us near
And bind us tight
All your children here
In rags of light
In our rags of light
All dressed to kill
And end this night
If it be Your will
If it be Your will

Track Name: Lord, Protect My Child (Wooden)
(A Bob Dylan song, arranged by The Lost Dogs)

For his age, he is wise
He's got his mother's eyes
There's gladness in his heart
He's young and he's wild
My only prayer is, if I can't be there,
Lord, protect my child

As his youth now unfolds
He is centuries old
Seein' him at play makes me smile
No matter what happens to me
No matter what my destiny
Lord, protect my child

Protect my child
Protect my child

When the world is asleep
You can look at him and weep
Few things you find are worthwhile
Though I don't ask for much
No material things to touch
Lord, protect my child

He's young and on fire
Full of hope and desire
In a world that's been raped, raped and defiled
And if I fall along the way
And can't see another day
Lord, protect my child

Protect my child
Protect my child

There'll be a time I hear tell
When all will be well
Well God and man have been reconciled
But until men lose their chains
And the righteousness reigns
Lord, protect my child
