Track Name: Guitar Lady
Guitar Lady
by Warren Friesen

She was always a lady, her long hair hangin' down
Two shows a night, singin' and playin' guitar
And she never knew about me, I didn't mind anyway
I just wanted to watch her, singin' and playin' guitar

She sang, "Loves been cruel to me, oh don't you know"
And her voice filled the room, along with the smoke
Guitar Lady, don't be blue, 'cause you know some day
I'll sing along with you, I just need to get my courage up
It's at the bottom of this cup, Guitar Lady, don't be blue.

I heard her on the radio, her pretty voice sing
Yeah she went and left me, sittin' all alone
And I guess she didn't know, I was her number one fan
Sittin' way in the back, with a drink in my hand.
Track Name: Correction Line
Correction Line
by Brian Thiessen/Ed Friesen


Dark night, and lonely night, just another stretch of road
We're putting more miles between us and it shows
If I keep on this heading another day
It'll just be me, my truck, and the radio

Streetlights, suburbanites, gathered around a meal
And I thinkin of how you used to make me feel
And I wanna come back and make it right
And I'm searching for a way to turn back the wheel

I'm comin' on up to a correction line
A course adjustment to redefine
No matter the cause or what's on the line
Don't worry baby, I'm comin' to a correction line.

Objects in the mirror are the taillights of the past
All the road signs and detours that we passed
and looking back at the way it went
still brought us to this place at last

whether a Back road, a crossroad, no destination is set in stone
we don't need to choose which way on our own
From a highway to a byway, or a dirt path that's overgrown
Track Name: On A Roll
On A Roll
by Brian Thiessen

You caught my eye, that hot summer night
The way you moved through the room
No matter what I tried, it never felt right
My heart was pounding, I was consumed

What's this that's happening to me
Must be me falling for you
All these feelings locked up inside me
coming out whenever i see you

Well, I've held my heart back for so long
I'm so tired of being all alone
I'm gonna let my love show

Yeah, I'm on a roll
I'm on a roll

Headed into town early this evening
Heard you were looking for me
Tonight's the night, no more denying
Gotta say it, can't let it be

So much is hangin' on the line
Can I be brave enough
Can I say it, will it be in time
You know that I'm in love

Well, I've held my heart back for so long
I'm so tired of being all alone
I'm gonna let my love show

I'm on a roll
I'm on a roll
Track Name: Only Me Left To Blame
Only Me Left to Blame
by Brian Thiessen

Sitting by the bar, with coins in hand
I need to find the song, to help me forget
Back at home, the one I love don't understand
That hurt she caused, just ain't over yet.

I ain't done, crying, over you.
The pain cuts so deep it's true
But the memories, we made, are slowly fading away
Now there's only, me left to blame.

So many lonely nights, I find myself here
no way to know how long this will last
Nothing more to learn from inside this beer
I guess it's finally, over at last.

But I ain't done, crying over you
The pain cut so deep it's true
But the memories, we made, are slowly fading away
Now there's only, me left to blame

But the memories, we made, are slowly fading away
Now there's only, me left to blame
