Track Name: The Wildcard
You know I got to roll out, baby
Got to roll out from the rocky shore
I heard there’s water at the bottom and maybe
We can ride it like we done before
We had that pontoon like a Chevy Camaro
When we last sailed the open seas
With the Wildcard and a Sombrero
There was the full moon guiding free

But those were days of roses,
Poetry and proses and wine
Roses and wine, roses and wine
These ain’t such innocent times
Before the life of Poker
Were days of roller coasters and crime
And the roses and wine, roses and wine
These ain’t such innocent times

I can still remember the days back then
Hanging with them cinnamon girls
Passing round a bottle of buck-shot gin
Drinking to the end of the world
And if you wanna go and get your mind erased
You gotta deal your drinks tall and hard
But it’s a long way to the top, they say
If you’re trying to play the Wildcard

But those were days of roses,
Poetry and proses and wine
Roses and wine, roses and wine
These ain’t such innocent times
Before the life of Poker
Were days of roller coasters and crime
And the roses and wine, roses and wine
These ain’t such innocent times

I gotta bad bad, bad kinda good idea
I gotta bad bad, bad kinda good idea

But first let’s have a toast
To the man who hugged the coast in his time
Raise your roses and wine, roses and wine
These ain’t such innocent times

I gotta bad bad, bad kinda good idea
I gotta bad bad, bad kinda good idea
This ain’t no wine and roses
Track Name: Heaven Sitting Down
I wish I was in heaven sitting down
I wish I was in heaven sitting down
Lord, angel, oh my lord
I wish I was in heaven sitting down

I wish I had wings to fly
I wish I had wings to fly
Lord, angel, oh my lord
I wish I had wings to fly

Take away my sin and give me grace
Take away my sin and give me grace
Lord, angel, oh my lord
Take away my sin and give me grace
