Track Name: The Gallows Birds
The Gallows Birds
by Alaska Gold Rush


Sunday morning when the sun was shine
Don't know if I'm dead or alive
Outlaw hidden behind the tracks
Bad luck my best friend's on my back

Yesterday is a far-away lie
Lost my darling, baby down the line
Bad luck hidden behind the tracks
Outlaw my best friend's on my back

Down the river there's nothing left to lose
Ain't seen nothing darker than a road with no shoes
This town ain't no good for me

Nights dragging forever and more
Roaming around nothing for
New trouble, old battles won
When I kissed her she said well done

This place echoes the day we met
Ain't no love to pay my debt
New trouble, old battles won
When I kissed her she said well done

Down the river there's nothing left to lose
Ain't seen nothing darker than a road with no shoes
This town ain't no good for me

This town ain't no good for me
Got somewhere else to see
This town ain't no good for me
Got some other places, some other nights to see
Track Name: Shake In Those Streets
Shake In Those Streets
by Alaska Gold Rush


Hey man
I'm stuck with balls and chains to the city
My feet and soul shake in those streets
Where us was born

Hey man
No one told me it would hurt that way
She takes the place I had yesterday
What more can I say

Come back and sit here
You're not the only one who can disappear

Hey man
I'm stuck with balls and chains to the city
The wind blows and shakes in those streets
Where us was born
Track Name: Clarksdale
Clarksdale
by Alaska Gold Rush


Clarksdale in the morning
My days are few
The Riverside in the evening
My friends are few

Holly Ridge in the morning
High water everywhere
Friars Point in the evening
Water rose most everywhere

The man in the juke-joint answers with a gun
Me and my get-away car are back on the run

Clarksdale in the morning
Blues all around my bed
The Riverside in the evening
Them blues is all I get

The man in the juke-joint answers with a gun
Me and my get-away car are back on the run
Track Name: Silhouettes
Silhouettes
by Alaska Gold Rush


Back to the memories of old towns and visions
Did the Pecos Valley take me away
From the misted rivershores of my mind
Hangin' on and on with nowhere to go
Deserted pastures of my heart
Painted forests on the other side
Lookin' down low

Among those silhouettes
Can't find no place no more
Among those silhouettes
Can't even say where you're at

Back to the memories of ghost towns and visions
Was it Santa Fe that blew me away
From the lonesome corners of my head
New Mexico silent borders ahead
They're moving westward too
The red sandy sun burning inside out
Flees the morning by the county line
Somewhere to start anew

Among those silhouettes
Can't find no place no more
Among those silhouettes
Can't even say where you're at
Track Name: Downtown Movies
Downtown Movies
by Alaska Gold Rush


Time binds me, me to you
Like the stained sidewalks to the boulevards
If I turn my back on you in the streets
It's because my soul ain't made of steel

Walkers-by cheaply burn
Sketches of you in the morning sun

Brussels got no songs, Brussels ain't my home
Glenrio's floating in my head wherever I roam
If I turn my back on you in the streets
It's because my soul ain't made of steel

Bright light windshield flash
City sunrise roll down lane
Mellow pianos like cyanide bombs
Conquer downtown movies

Walkers-by cheaply burn
Sketches of you in the morning sun
Track Name: From The Bixby Bridge Again
From The Bixby Bridge Again
by Alaska Gold Rush


I've lost the keys of the ballroom
The party's over, the hotel, its gloom
Let me stay here for a night
I've asked your mother, she said I might

The road has been stretching away for ever
Been listening to Merle Travis with a drunken truck driver
Been cursing tender love and other scenarios
Body shot full of holes

A car's not a friend
Like the story goes
A car's not a way
A car's not a home

Lost my heart in downtown Frisco
The drummer boy is the only guy I know
The avenues color all over the floor
Beggars get beaten and ask for more

The wind will never cease fighting the bridge
Like my head will never cease fighting the wind
Let me stay here for a night
I've asked your mother, she said I might

A car's not a friend
Like the story goes
A car's not way
A car's not a home
