Track Name: Take My Heart
Well I loved me some pretty girls from Maine to Tokyo
Met one on a train to Istanbul to visit Joe
I won’t forget that kiss along the Seine in old Paris
Spent a night in London with a girl who’s on TV


Used to always think, and now I know that it’s true
A woman would never steal my heart
It's my heart that I don’t need if I don’t have you
So just take it with you if we part

Bounced around these cities where the winters are so cold
But summer brings that youthful beauty pageant to behold
Parted with my money like a fool is wont to do
Bought up everything from escargot to high heeled shoes


Opened up my luggage in the home of liberty
That’s where I met you darlin', now I never will be free
Never more to ramble out there on the road alone
Nothing left of my love for those pretty girls I've known
Track Name: A Few Hundred Miles
Well I'm packing up my duffel, take a train southbound
It's a long way to Memphis, I can hear the sound
Of them wheels under my feet
Taking me from my hometown

From them Blue Ridge mountains my home's
Just a few hundred miles away
A city boy I's born, and a city boy I'll die
But in them Carolina hills I long to stay

I'm trading in my takeout for a home cooked meal
I've been trapped up in towers concrete and steel
For so long
Half a lifetime, it feels
