1. Find me, Ruben Olivares

Meet me in Leon near Mexico city
Where I remember you clear
Meet me at night, St. Louis, Missouri
Where I first saw you

There is a scent that lingers around me
Find me wherever I go
There are the pictures sad but so pretty
Lakes and sunsets

Find me asleep near deserts and oceans
Places I couldn´t have dreamt
They are all cold and frozen without you
They are nothing

Chase me down Sycamore
like you did not long before
Play your old brown guitar
And shine so bright

There is a trail that winds around the river
There is a bench on the ground
Those are the beds and the rooms that we slept in
Those are the songs we found

Find me in streets searching for something
Something somehow that I lost
Find me in life aching for someone
Someone as good

Look for me like you did
On the days I ran and hid
Bring your old gifts you brought
And find me

There is a world big as a mountain
There is a world to be shared
Still there is love tall as a mountain
Still there is love

2. Rock N Roll Singer
(Young – Young – Scott)

My Daddy worked from nine to five
My Momma stayed home with me
By the time that I was half alive
I knew what I wanted be
When I left school I grew my hair
They didn’t understand
Wanted me to be respected as
A doctor or a lawyer man

I´m gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll singer
Gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll star
Gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll singer
Gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll star

As I grew up I worked real hard
So I could buy this guitar
I want to be on top one day
I want to be a star
I can see my name in lights
and I can can see it huge
I’ve got the devil in my blood
Tellin’ me what to do

I´m gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll singer
Gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll star
Gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll singer
Gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll star

3. You ain´t got a hold on me
(Young, Young, Scott)

You can roll me round your finger
You can roll me if I’m blind
You can roll me roll me roll me
I’m the easy rollin’ kind
But don’t think I’m facin’ down hill
‘Cause soon you’ll see
You’ll lose your grip and slip
But you don’t got a hold on me

You don’t got a hold on me
You don’t got a hold on me
Why don’t you let me be
Why don’t you let me be

You can take me to your bedroom
You can take me to your heart
You can take me up to the hill
I won’t fall apart
But don’t count on me givin’ it
All back to you
Just because I’m hooked on livin
Doesn’t mean I’m hooked on you

You ain´t got a hold on me
You don’t got a hold on me
Why don’t you let me be
Why don’t you let me be
Why don’t you let me be
You don’t got a hold on me

4. Metropol 47

Flash your smile and face at me
Open your eyes wide at me
Lay down every day with me
Until the long gone days

Speak a native tongue to me
Say some funny things to me
Roll around and laugh with me
Until the long gone days

Take me around the city streets
Find us pretty things to eat
Find us something good to drink
But buy me one more day

One more day to know this place
T to kiss your sweet koala face
To love you deep into the night
To feel you underneath me

5. Around and Around
(John Denver)

Time as I’ve known it, it doesn’t take much time to pass by me.
Minutes into days, turn into months, turn into years, they hurry by me.
Still I love to see the sun go down, and the world go around.

Dreams full of promises, hopes for the future, I’ve had many
Dreams I can’t remember now, hopes that I’ve forgotten, faded memories.
Still I love to see the sun go down, and the world go around.

And I love to see the morning as it steals across the sky.
And I love to remember, and I love to wonder why.
And I hope that I’m around, so I can be there when I die, when I’m gone.

I hope that you will think of me in moments when you’re happy, and you’re smiling.
And that the thought will comfort you on cold and cloudy days, if you are crying.
And that you’ll love to see the sun go down
and the world go around, and around and around.

6. Bad Boy Boogie
(Young, Young, Scott)

On the day I was born the rain came down
There was trouble brewing in my home town
It was the seventh day, I was the seventh son
And it scared the hell out of everyone

They said stop, I said go
They said yes, I said no
They said fast, I said slow

Being a bad boy ain’t that bad
I’ve known more pretty women than most men had
So all you women come along with me
And I’ll show you how fun that can be

They said right and Isaid left
They said east and I said west
They said up and I said down

I tell you a story, it ain’t no lie
I was born to love till the day I die
So you can line them up and I knock them down
Till they all came tumbling down

They said up and I said down
They said sleep but I roam
They said lost but I said found

It’s a bad boy

7. Ruth Marie

I grew so old
In that house I lived in
They brought me here
‘Cause I can’t take care

I lost my worth
And my purpose here
I feel you cry
But I can’t speak my mind

Will you hold me
And never let me go
‘Cause I hate it when you walk outside that door
‘Cause I know I won’t ever see your eyes
The eyes I gave you

When my eyes shut
They’ll take me to the land
For fiftie years I lived there with my man
And on my own I lived for fortie more
I watched you grow up
From babies on the floor

To the beautiful women that you are
And I hated that you’ve gone away so far
Cause I know I won’t ever see those eyes
The eyes I gave you

The evenings fall
They’ll drag me out the hall
Up to my bunk and drug me ’til I’m numb
But pass the haze
I see your pretty face
Remember me when I’m gone

You know I love you
Though I can hardly say
And I hate it when you see me in this way
But in darkness
I’ll always see those eyes
The eyes I gave you
