Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah

Going To Mexico

length: 3:38
Pack my bags
Don't be too slow
I should have quit you baby
A long time ago
Left you flat
And split for mexico

Don't try to stop me
Child, you're talkin' too fast
You and your friends babe
You are a thing in my past
You're much too slow
I'm goin' to mexico

I've got four or five hundred miles to go
Down that southbound highway
'53 studebaker goin' for broke
I'm pushin' it night and day
I've had enough of your lies
To last a long, long time
You and your mother, babe
You're like a nursery rhyme
You're much too slow
I'm goin' to mexico

Yeah, come on baby
Yeah

Nothing Lasts

length: 3:21
All the things you think and say
Float away into space
Done in thought or done in haste
They have no place, they leave no trace

All the things you think and do
Have become a part of you
All your deeds have come to pass
Nothing lasts, nothing lasts

Like a river flowing past your windowpane
Life's never the same
Like the sun you're born to set
You'll die in sin
And be born once again

Now you know, so damn well
That your life is a heaven and a hell
And it's very easy to tell
When you're sick and when you're well

So the secret to this life
Is so very easy to learn
If you ever love another
Never ask for anything in return

Like a river flowing past your windowpane
Life's never the same
Like the sun you're born to set
You'll die in sin
And be born once again

All the things you think and say
Float away into space
Done in thought or done in haste
They have no place, they leave no trace

All the things you think and do
Have become a part of you
All your deeds have come to pass
Nothing lasts, nothing lasts

Going To The Country

length: 2:59
Gonna leave the city put my troubles behind
People in the city goin' out of their minds
Goin' to the country just to feel like gold
People in the country really let themselves go

Hey, ho, one thing I know
People in the country got one thing for sure
Hey, ho, one thing I know
Every mother's child really lets himself go

Goin' to the country and leavin' right away
No time to talk I got to make a getaway
Gonna leave the city it's a crime and a shame
People in the city are goin' insane

Hey, ho, one thing I know
Every mother's child really lets himself go
Hey, ho, one thing I know
People in the country really let themselves go

Joining hands
Making plans
Come on down
Look around

Kitchen Blues

The Window

length: 6:09
Ask my baby what she wants to be
She'll say a monkey swingin' in a tree
Ask my baby what she's thinkin' of
She'll say there's nothing greater than love

Well, look through the window
Tell me what do you see
A beautiful planet
Peace and harmony

Think love you're surrounded
We are one you and I
Gather your leaves together
There's only love until we die
Until we die

Ask my baby what she's goin' through
She'll say the same thing, the same thing as you
Ask my baby what she's thinkin' of
She'll say there's nothing greater than love

Look through the window
Tell me what do you see
A beautiful planet
Peace and harmony

Think love you're surrounded
We are one you and I
Gather your leaves together
There's only love until we die
Until we die

Fly Like An Eagle

length: 4:37
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm free
Oh, Lord, through the revolution

Feed the babies
Who don't have enough to eat
Shoe the children
With no shoes on their feet
House the people
Livin' in the street
Oh, oh, there's a solution

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm free
Fly through the revolution

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm free
Fly through the revolution

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

Wild Mountain Honey

length: 4:03
Ooh, mama
Well look what's been done
You can only see the stars
After a setting sun

You run for the money
You don't even know about wild mountain honey

Come on mama
Heal this lonesome man
Grow the tree of wholeness
In this desert land

Come on children
Now learn how to run
By heaven, the stars, the moon and the sun

Come on papa
Your end is the means
Don't trade your love and goodness
For the golden machine

You run for the money
You don't even know about wild mountain honey

Song For Our Ancestors

length: 5:14
Did you see the lights
As they fell all around you
Did you hear the music
Serenade from the stars

Wake up, wake up
Wake up and look around you
We're lost in s___e
And the time is our own

Whoa, whoa
Iiiiiiiiii

Did you feel the wind
As it blew all around you
Did you feel the love
That was in the air

Wake up, wake up
Wake up and look around you
We're lost in s___e
And the time is our own

Whoa, whoa
Iiiiiiiiii

The sun comes up
And it shines all around you
You're lost in s___e
And the earth is your own

Whoa, whoa
Whoa

Seasons

length: 4:04
Summer, fall, winter, spring
Of the seasons I will sing
To help you through your birth
As you spend your time on earth
In the wind

The summer song won't last long
When this warm old man has come
I'll sing your of your birth
As you spend your time on earth
In the wind

And so it goes
As the wind blows
The seasons will flow
To help you through your birth
As you spend your time on earth
In the wind

A mother's child
A father's son
In this crowd, I'm only one
To tell you of your worth
As you spend your time on earth
In the wind

And so it goes
As the wind blows
And so it goes
As the wind blows
