Montgomery 04:17
Montgomery by Alaska Gold Rush I eat those streets where lightings weep They never forget they never cease Squealing and pushing my head as a pillow Reaching heaven behind some willows Loss echoes for the last time And crushes there on your right A wish ago bodies were no more I press pretty close this .44 Am I going somewhere If yes where Try to picture rockets Sent up through air and heads Ain't it a good day for a one-way ride The van's empty with our speechless nights Breeze streching my words, your eyelids Towns standing for minutes I wanna kill time in a pale blue car I wanna drive straight to this empty star I'll never get out I'll never get out of this world alive Am I going somewhere If yes where Filled my shoes with come alongs Spend my bucks in jukebox songs Can't find no way to get along But I can try this way, just like this

Violent Streets by Alaska Gold Rush Oh come on you know this town ain't never gonna be the same again But the sun still rises at five and swings its way up through the day Ain't no love in these violent streets of night Can't find the moon and the sunshine I wanna go home with something to say to you Stories of murder way behind me Through dead roads and mystic highways With a legendary heart heavy by the miles Ain't no love in these violent streets of night Can't find the moon and the sunshine Call me tomorrow I'll be eating memories and creating sorrow You're welcome if you bring yours You'll find out why time passes so slowly Even if we run like mad

Psychobilly Mad Heavyweight by Alaska Gold Rush Time never stops my heart It burns through the neon squares It flashes on and off red And I feel life hurting my chest And the rhythm hitting like a heavyweight The ever-chaotic spasms of my body and soul Against the cage of monotony Against the tide of eternity To be everywhere at the same time and nowhere at all I’m everywhere at the same time and nowhere at all And the psycho rhythm hitting like a mad heavyweight The beatings of my feet and heart Intertwined in a wild delirious union Get mixed together so much That I can not single out one from the other I can not single out one from the other And the psycho rhythm hitting like a mad heavyweight

Big Cities 04:05
Big Cities by Alaska Gold Rush Take me to the train station I’m leaving I ain’t got a dime To pay rent on time Up north they’re better wagers I know it’s written on the papers Here lynching mobs running after me Don’t wanna go to their necktie party For nothing in here I’ll get something in there People say they treat you fair Take me to the train station I’m leaving I don’t want us to live in trailers Or falling-apart grain elevators It’s the old american dream To follow the stream Our kids don’t ever play no more Our smiles are sore To make the story short I hope it won’t be long Before I’ll be back home Big cities see shadows rise Take me to the train station I’m leaving Here the buzzing sounds of cars Haven’t fed me much food so far I think about the folks I miss About you and the kids And the river that flows But I’m where money grows I’ll try to send you some soon I picture you in your white dress After all, it’s sunday afternoon Big cities see shadows rise

Dirty Road 02:40
Dirty Road by Alaska Gold Rush Tomorrow dies with the morning I’m the wrong man listening to the last train leaving Got this old red sun whipping me I’m in Parchman Farm, I may never go free again I can’t go down by myself this dirty road Good morning captain, good morning sun I hear the water flow but I can’t get none So go bring me my shotgun I can’t go down by myself this dirty road So lonesome in the city Gonna take my chance in them hilly countries I don’t know what time of the day But those silent bells threw their watch away Chilly wind blew high now it flies low I just can’t go down by myself this dirty road

Lincoln County War by Alaska Gold Rush They call me Billy the Kid They don’t know where I’m hid But the path is clear now only coyotes around Bounty hunters try to hang me high But there’s no rope No tree high enough to make me die Never felt as lonesome as in Missouri But Lincoln County War is not about me Riders getting close Stormy bullets in the sky Judge Colt and his jury of six is a friend mine Gamblers for a deck of cards I killed hundreds so they said Never drunk no liquor but killing sure I did Never been lonesome in the plains I see But Lincoln County War won’t end without me Silver threads among the gold I’ll find peace along the way As tumbling tumbleweeds lead me to the county jail

Since 29 04:27
Since 29 by Alaska Gold Rush Years together won't be forever The first words become the last The jaw's stuck and the tongue gets dry Long time since 29 Do they make you feel lonely the old days Pictures sound phony but ring a bell I'd rather see us singing & walking by Long time since 29 Years together won't last forever The first words soon become the last Your jaw's stuck and your tongue gets dry Long long time since 29

Birds & Freight Trains by Alaska Gold Rush I feel the ocean breeze, the smell of broken cars Lonesome promises held in Chickasaw Park The path I’m following leads me to why I’ve been here A second to burn, a life to heal The streets were filled with soldiers and sunday walks We were young and free and longing for midnight talks I grabbed your hand and wished you’d never be leaving Who knows when it was, in 44 or something You went back to the battlefield, to pain and blood For all I know winter was cold then and you hit the rough Back home time was fair to you with friends all around That’s when the tree fell down on you in a roaring sound I've been living out there Among the wheat plains Nothing ever stops in here no more But birds and freight trains I wrote letters by the millions to address unknown Maybe I should have written words on them, a word’s like home I changed my mind at least 85 times I know where I’m bound but I’m doing alright The Indian arrow heads I treasure show me where I come from The 33’s keep singing those lovely songs I wonder if you’d ever remember my name And I’ll never get back to Louisville again There stand the years between now and then You’re still young somewhere as my hair turns grey and No children will ever dance around me At least not mine, at least I’m free

Silhouettes 04:22
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

MacDougal 03:50
MacDougal by Alaska Gold Rush Them saxophones blowing from Dixieland Red light morning sounds like a big ol' band My lonely days are over Drums like churchbells rain on the rooftops Theaters and city halls, tramways be-bop My lonely days are gone Before I turn lazy I still wanna hear about John Henry Before the sun disappears I still wanna hear about ol' Stack-O-Lee The banjo boy is looking for a place to shine Shoes for a nickel, two songs for a dime My lonely days are over Coffeehouses closing now, poets step aside They leave by the corner on the avenues get a ride My lonely days are gone Before I turn lazy I still wanna hear about John Henry Before the sun disappears I still wanna hear about ol' Stack-O-Lee The Mayor's still hangin' out on McDougal Street Like a ghost of some kind I can hear him in my sleep My lonely days are over My lonely days are gone

Dead City Morning Sun by Alaska Gold Rush Oh these streets are dead They look like a symphony As I'm trying not to forget Where I am and who I've been For the shadows get closer and closer They're marching from the grave to the city The sun heals better when it shines heavy Dead city morning sun Oh so long I've been waiting, so long you've been gone The color in the sky won't bring you back Still convince me there’re good things I've done Everyone borrows someone's music Everyone steals someone's heart The past ringing mighty clear and electric And the way back home is hard Dead city morning sun

Gallows Birds II by Alaska Gold Rush Sunday morning when the sun was shin’ 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 Outlaw hidden behind the tracks Bad luck 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 Nights dragging forever and more Roaming around nothing for 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
