Track Name: Hills of the Borough
On the old fire tower you can see far and wide
you can't get much higher within the county line
Muddy water flows shallow and slow
who knows what's buried on the banks of the old Eno
On the steps of the courthouse you can sing your song
but when the bell strikes noon you won't sing for long

In the hills of the borough stories are told
some are long others are old
How I long just to hear them again
Out in the hills of the borough

When you're dead and walking on down the road
you done too much talkin' on the banks of the old Eno
Cause now the town knows what you down
and you're dead and buried alongside the setting sun
Track Name: To the tavern
Tonight I will go to the tavern to have a pint of confidence and pride
I don't think I can I can be the man that you want me to be without some help from my friends

Jack calms me down and brings comfort to my soul
and the Captain always drives me home to you
My friends they all know I don't know how to show my feelings to those close to me

When I stumble home in the morning and I can't hardly grip on the rail, well don't think that I don't care

Jack calms me down and brings comfort to my soul
and the Captain always drives me home to you
My friends they all know I don't know how to show my feelings to those close to me
Track Name: Lost Wallet Blues
I reached in my pocket going for my wallet
all i find is lint
Why am I not spending more time
defending this piece of mind
Got the lost wallet blues what am I to do
all I have left is change
I find it unfair but I really don't care
Does anyone find it strange?

I left it some place that I can't recall but I swear I've been there before
I didn't look too hard in fact I didn't even start
I lost my lost wallet blues

My wallet's camouflage it blends in with the sand, the forest floor, and the trees
I dropped it in the leaves now it's gone for good
back where my money should be
Got the lost wallet blues what am I to do
all I have left is change
I find it unfair but I really don't care
Does anyone find it strange?

I left it some place that I can't recall but I swear I've been there before
I didn't look too hard in fact I didn't even start
I lost my lost wallet blues
Track Name: Southbound
I'm going southbound away from trouble and treason
I've got my reasons to get out of this old town
I'm going southbound
I've been far and have seen faces dirty and clean
been west of kentucky I'm going southbound

Gave it a chance in the wild west
I must confess that I don't stand a chance

I'm going nowhere and the sun's behind me
I'm going back to where I belong
well I'm going southbound

Gave it a chance in the wild west
I must confess that I don't stand a chance

I'm going southbound away from trouble and treason
I've got my reasons to get out of this old town
I'm going southbound
