For forty long years I've been sitting back Now I'm headed for the railroad track and when you see me com in' just get out of the way Cause I'm a Diesel Locomotive Deal with this runaway I'm a Diesel Locomotive, I'm a Bullet Train Impact hitting like a hurricane And when you see me common, just get out of the way Cause I'm a Diesel Locomotive Deal with this runaway Now did you think I'd just fly away Keep a tight lip and play the game No no baby, I ain't join away Cause I'm a Diesel Locomotive Deal with this runaway I'm a Diesel Locomotive, I'm a Bullet Train Impact hitting like a hurricane And when you see me common, just get out of the way Cause I'm a Diesel Locomotive Deal with this runaway I'm a Diesel Locomotive OH YES I AM! I'm a Diesel Locomotive, no cabose for McKay Released by: Cuppa Joe Records Release date: 26 February 2021 P-line: ℗ Copyright 2021 Cuppa Joe Music LLC.

Bring on the night (Adams, Macre) Up at the sunrise First crack of dawn Sailing these waters Singing this song Sha La La La sunrise Bring on the night Sometimes when I look into my eyes I think of life with a smile Breathing, Loving, The Miracle mile Minute by minute Makes life worthwhile Sha La La La sunrise Bring on the night Solo (J. A.) Sha La La La Sha La La La I don't see a battle Dad won the war Hey, cn you feel that, there's no before. Peace like a river A call to restore and in the end Bring on the night Sha La La La sunrise Sha La La La La La…La la Solo (R.W.) Solo (C.E.)

Drag it Down 03:40
Drag it down (Macre) It really seemed like the perfect plan, the battle had been won. Aeroplanes, subsidized and lying in the sun. Uncle Bill created the bill to see it be redone. Did you think that three from five would bring the number one? Drag it down, Drag it down Drag it down, Drag it down Drag it down thru the mud I guess you thought my rocking chair was keeping me behind Man, the scenery was nice when I just went back in time Came back for another round with licks I left behind That kind of chemistry is something you won't find Drag it down, Drag it down Drag it down, Drag it down Drag it down thru the mud Solo A little birdie on your shoulder told lies that we should fight Just keep on pushing buttons and you know it just ain't right Now I'm seeing green green grass just a step outside my door Excuse me mister, ain't no resistor that can hold me back no more Drag it down, Drag it down Drag it down, Drag it down Drag it down thru the mud Solo

Slow Ryder 04:20
Slo Ryder (Macre) Saw it in Cali.The San Francisco way' 47 Caddi. Window display. You know he had to take it home that day. That thirst for crawln' just won't go away. Better stay back, better stay backWatch that Slow Ryder, he'll be there shortly Slow Ryder, the cat is on his way Then came the rainbow, shinnin' on the bay. So what's the hurry, relax with untie Jane My shadow's calling, It just won't go away. Mulberry moonshine, watch him crawl away. Better stay back, better stay back Watch that Slow Ryder, he'll be there shortly Slow Ryder, the cat is on his way Lost in his hometown, trying to find a way. He's not the brightest diamond in the cse. Ain't never rattled if it takes all day. You know he's com in. Trust me when I say Better stay back, better stay backWatch that Slow Ryder, he'll be there shortly Slow Ryder, the cat is on his way..

Safety in numbers There's so many people Going to the races They paint on their faces And smile They watch the days fly by And don't even ask why Meanwhile The world that surrounds them Looks whithered and half dead And even your own head's been there You feel the depression And join the procession Nowhere As you march in the madness You crawl with the sadness That you might not leave the parade While the drummers are pounding You hear this astounding voice say: "Don't fear Come here Don't cry Stand by There's safety in numbers And numbers don't lie Don't lie" As the troops keep progressing You notice you've fallen behind And you're calling in fear But they're just too caught up In the way they've been brought up to here You halt for a minute And consider this strange voice Could this be your choice to lead? You hold the depression And watch the procession procede As the stranger gets nearer His image gets clearer He calls out and you hear him say "You've issued a May Day And May will be home for the day So Don't fear Come here Don't cry Stand by There's safety in numbers And numbers don't lie Don't lie" To yourself when yourself is Telling you that you're all That you have so just listen to You So exit the madness And enter the gladness And you will become quite aware You can end the depression And join the procession somewhere And "Don't fear Come here Don't cry Stand by There's safety in numbers And numbers don't lie Don't lie"

You Can't take it with you (Macre)S aw something special pass my way The Major Captain down by the bay She saw it common down the hallway Listen to me By the way If you can't take it with youYou better leave it alone You can't take it with you You got to leave it alone .It's not my business not for free Find me a prison a lock and a key You say it's simple I say you're mad If you don't believe me, ask my dad. Because you can't take it with you You better leave it alone You can't take it with you You got to leave it alone. Is there a reason that you're telling me this? I guess I'm guilty of being remiss. As the clock ticks down and it's on the line, call my number anytime. SoloT his fine apparel has had a long day. The crowd was pushin and heading my way I fought for freedom I fought for trueI I guess the truth is there ain't no re do's. Because you can't take it with you You better leave it alone You can't take it with you You got to leave it alone. Take me home.

At the Roadhouse (Palumbo) At the Roadhouse everybody comes to play. At the Roadhouse you better log your soul away. Take a load off brother let me buy you a beer but just don't try to tell me why you're sitting here. Celebrate this fine cuisine, I got a twenty dollar bill says you're as lonely as me. It's a dead end of a place but you know I'll be here, yes I'll be here At the Roadhouse my dear. Solo At the Roadhouse everybody comes to play. You'd better throw all your dreams away. Play number seven, It's a Hank Williams tune. Man I love it when he does them old twangy blues. Pour me a cold one, Chuck and one for that girl with the nose bleed shoes and the K Mart pearls. It's a bad dream of a place but you know I'll be here, yes I'll be here At the Roadhouse my dear. Solo

If I Only had a brain (Arlen, Harburg) Produced by Jim Griffiths I could while away the hours Conferrin' with the flowers, Consulting with the rain; And my head I'd be a scratchin' While my thoughts are busy hatchin' If I only had a brain. I'd unravel ev'ry riddle for my Individdle In trouble or in pain With the thoughts that you'll be thinkin' You could be another Lincoln If you only had a brain. Oh, I, could tell you why The oceans near the shore I could think of things I'd never Thunk before, And then I'd…

Goodbye 03:07
Goodbye (Lennon/McCartney) Please don't make me wait too late tomorrow comes and I will not be late Late to day when it becomes tomorrow I willLeave to go a-way Goodbye... Goodbye...Goodbye, Goodbye, my love, Goodbye Songs that lingered on my lips excite me now and linger on my mind Leave your &owers at my door I'll leave them forThe one who waits behind Goodbye... Goodbye...Goodbye, Goodbye, my love, Goodbye Far away my lover sings a lonely songAnd calls me to her side When a song of lonely love invites me onI must go to her side Goodbye... Goodbye...Goodbye, Goodbye, my love, Goodbye.
