Made the First Man Fall (G)
John Holk

G / C-G / D / G /
I was walking outside your window

Think of what to say
E- / C / G / G /
I told you once I would not be moved,

Now you're looking  down from your window
C / C / A7 / A7 /
Now I know what to say
G / C-G / D / G /
You're so good-looking, I let you win
F / C / G / G /
though I'll take your heart one day
F / C / G / G /
yes, I'll steal your heart away

solo

V2:

Trapped inside of this old-fashioned doorway
That I stumbled through
I think of the girl from that newfangled barroom and
wish she was more like you
Evening fires make the fire die out some and
we both know not to call
Remember this it was just one kis that
made the first man fall
Track Name: Where You Going
Where you goin?
Where you goin
I don't mind if you take me
don't mind if you take me - no

The river's flowin
The river's flowin I don't know
where it'll take me
I don't know where it takes me - oh

You keep me goin'
you keep me goin' don't you
know you can't hurt me
you know you can't hurt me - no

I keep believing
I keep believing that some
day you'll desert me
some day you'll desert me - oh you


say - over and over again
that we will always stay friends till the end friends who pretend
to feel - nothing is ever too real nothing is ever revealed or explained
we are the same - oh oh oh

you keep me running 2x
I don’t know where you’ll take me 2 x
I think you’re something 2 x
I don’t know what that makes me 2 x

won’t you tell - words that you’re trying to sell
words that you know very well I don’t like - no I don’t like
to feel nothing is ever too real nothing is ever revealed or explained
we are to blame - oh

Where you goin?
Where you goin
I don't mind if you take me
don't mind if you take me - no

The river's flowin
The river's flowin I don't know
where it'll take me
I don't know where it takes me - oh
Track Name: See
SEE (A)

Intro: Guitar

Iz:
SEE- WHAT YOU LONG TO BE
SPENDING TIME WITH ME
SPENDING TIME TOGETHER

Iz & John:
FREE - WHAT YOU WANT TO BE
WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE
WHAT’S YOUR KIND OF PLEASURE

I, J & B:
WE CAN’T DESCRIBE
WE CAN’T DESCRIBE WHAT WE FEEL

Ahh…

V2 (All):

YOU - PROMISE NOT TO DO
WHAT THEY TOLD YOU TO
NOW AND FOREVER

I - DIDN’T WANT TO TRY
NOW I’VE GOT TO FLY
HOLDING ON FOREVER

SHE CAN’T EXPLAIN HOW SHE FEELS
SHE ALWAYS PUTS ME ON MY HEELS
SHE CA’N’T DESCRIBE THE WAY IT FEELS
SHE CAN’T GO FORWARDS
SHE CAN’T GO BACKWARDS ANY MORE
Track Name: Firelight
Firelight (D)

Verse 1
D / D / A- / A- /
I am a lonesome cowboy from the plains
G / G / D / D /
I walked ten miles to shelter from the rain
D / D / A- / A- /
been watching you by the firelight
G / G / D / D /
you want to know which way is wrong & which way is right

Now if you trace your line back to the south
don't be surprised if they punch you in the mouth
Cause you were waiting here so patiently
What’s the point of waiting to be free

Chorus
A- / G / D / D /
If you can’t prove you got the groove why do you try
If you can’t lose then why’d you choose that alibi?
Maybe I’m wrong, maybe I’m wrong but I’ve got to try
Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe I’m wrong but I’ve got to try
D / D / A- / A- /
Ahh..
G / G / D / D /

Verse 2
Now it’s a plain and simple fact
You occupy the place where I once sat
She don’t love you much more than she loved me
I bet you wait for her so patiently

Chorus 2
Now if you choose not to abuse her memory
You don’t despise all of the lies you couldn’t see
Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe I’m wrong can you make me see
Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe I’m wrong can you help me see
Ahh…

Verse 3
If you retrace your steps a hundred miles
You’ll never find the memory of her smile
It was just that way - she’s a picture of desire
No flesh no blood, no bones, just smoke and fire

Chorus 3
Now what you do, it don’t sound cool but it’s all right
and if you lose how do you choose now not to fight
maybe I’m wrong maybe I’m wrong but it don’t seem right
maybe I’m wrong
maybe I’m wrong
but it don’t seem right
Ahh…
Track Name: Another Glass Of Wine
Another Glass Of Wine (E)

Verse:
we didn't look very far down the road when we started out
and it didn't take long till the old man started to shout
you took a page right out of my book
you never even stopped to look
and now the whole town's on the hook just for what you said

well all the kids made a circle and they swayed to and fro
in a sudden reversal you claimed to never know
how the money made it in the bag
how the game was such a drag
why the people always brag when they're feeling low

Chorus:
well I'm crazy for your lazy lovin all the time
and maybe when your baby leaves home you'll come to mine
you always say you feel so bad
and I'm the best kind of loving that you ever had
so don't you look so sad and won't you have another glass of wine

Verse 2:
There's a pistol in a box on top of the TV set
I'll tell you when I know but I ain’t made my mind up yet
whether to come or go
or to do it fast or slow
I don't know but I'll tell you so when I make that bet

You got a creepy little smile that you make when you're feeling nice
It doesn't happen very often but it always happens twice
you took the words right out of my mouth
you hung a left for the land of the south
You never went without before you went with what would suffice

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3:
There’s a red-bearded lumberjack making for the merry go round
He puts a dime in the jukebox for that old south american sound
And all the people that sent their regrets
Ran to the corner just to place their bets
You always smoke cigarettes when there’s no one else around
Track Name: Once Again
Panic is something that I’m used to
But I deal with it in my own way
And loving you feels like a nightmare
I keep running through these rooms trying to say

baby - just take a look around you
I need you so much more than he
and baby - put your arms around me
don’t you know you were always meant for me

Come what’s it take
how’s the love that you make
won’t you say whatever’s on your mind

Come with me now
up the stairs down the hall
need to feel you close once again

Once again I see you smiling
Once again I hear you cry
and I feel your tears upon my face again
once again
once again
Track Name: Your Last Memory
V1:

1 / 1 / 1 / 4 /
Hail hail my old friend, are you close to the end
1 / 1 / 5 / 5 /
it's been a while, but my eyes don't fail to see
1 / 1 / 1 / 4 /
Why you standing alone?, don't you want to go home
1 / 5 / 1 / 1 /
Take a walk, take this last walk with me

CH:
5 / 5 / 4 / 1 /
Walk with me to the valley, walk with me to the highway
1 / 1 / 5 / 5 /
lets take flight, slip these old earthly chains
1 / 1 / 1 / 4 /
Lets reside in that place, where the picture of her face
1 / 5 / 1 / 1 /
is your last - your last memory

V2:
It's a cold bitter pill, all you want is to kill
that man, and the pain that laid you low
It's so hard not to fight, so hard to see the light
When the savior has called you to go

CH:
5 / 5 / 4 / 1 /
Walk with me to the valley, walk with me to the highway
1 / 1 / 5 / 5 /
lets take flight, slip these old earthly chains
1 / 1 / 1 / 4 /
Lets reside in that place, where the picture of her face
1 / 5 / 1 / 1 /
is your last - your last memory
