May the light shine down upon your shoulder,
Upon your shoulder, and show you the way
And may you be blessed, by the hands of mercy,
May the hands of mercy, show you the way
Lonely child,left alone
Your beautiful journey, will lead to salvation, and bring you
back home

May life protect you, and all that you value,
May all that you value be worthy and true
May every child, be able to eat, drink the fresh water,
And work on the line.
Lonely child, left alone
Your beautiful journey will lead to salvation and bring you back home!

Track Name: 3 Shots
Oh this city
What's it doing to me?
You hear something different everyday
There was a little one
He got caught in the sun
Surveys about guns on channel 1
Everyone knows
That 3 shots on the boulevard
And who will be the next one that they name?
Oh if nobody cares
I guess we’re all gonna hear the story,
And who will be the next one that they name?

Oh little one
You got bullied at school
Those warning signs of constant cruel
It's everywhere
it's not rich or poor
It's not black or white, it's a revolving door

And everyone knows
That 3 shots on the boulevard
And who will be the next one that they name?
Oh if nobody cares
I guess we’re all gonna hear the story
And who will be the next one that they name?

Oh, and everyone knows
That 3 shots on the boulevard
And who will be the next one that they name?
Oh and if nobody cares
I guess we’re all gonna hear the story
And who will be the next one that they name?
Oh, and everyone knows
That 3 shots on your boulevard
And who will be the next one that they name?
Track Name: John Wayne
We've lost our leading man
Thousands dead in the hills of Pakistan
Contrary to what you've been told
It's oil bought and sold

John Wayne you're forever gone
Good old Duke
I've been waiting all my life to see you again

Confused friendly fire
Politicians to be put on trial
They make their promises
And then they torture kids

John Wayne you're forever gone
Good old Duke
I've been waiting for all my life to see you again!

John Wayne you’re forever dead
John Wayne I wanna see you again
I wanna see you again
I wanna see you again
John Wayne, John Wayne!

John Wayne you’re forever gone
Good old Duke
I’ve been waiting all my life to see you again!

John Wayne you’re forever gone
Good old Duke
I’ve been waiting all my life to see you again

Money and empire
America and the absent sire
fatigues and Belleville boots
And some they kill in suits

It’s free tonight to rap us in its arms (oooh).

It's only a few more years

So wait wait for me Virginia, wait for me.
Oh wait wait for me Virginia, wait for me.

To my woman and my friends,thought the tour would never end I promise I'll be home soon
Though I don't know what we've done, a lot of good at what expense.
It left me with guilty hands!

So wait wait for me Virginia, wait for me

Track Name: Mi Amor
Girl in your window
Who will save your weary mood?
Blues by your boundary
Summer south of Spain in June
Voy a Esparar Para Siempre Mi Amor

Young Anna Maria
Oh, your curls they come so cute
Flowing fast on the water
Summer south of Spain in June
Voy a Esparar para Siempre mi Amor
Voy a Esparar para Siempre mi Amor

Stranded alone
Why do you wait?
And who will arrive?
Is it too late?
Patiently we wonder who you love

Girl in your window
Just a prisoner of circumstance
Freedom only a fable
What is life if but a chance
Voy a Esparar para Siempre mi Amor
Voy a Esparar para Siempre mi Amor
Track Name: The Ballad Of Mr. Rose
Mr. Rose, a diamond in your heart
You know I never saw you free from all you chains
You drink your wine, every single night
Did you ever work it out with you know who?
You embraced her even when you said goodbye

Come on down and sing your song
Sink into your yellow sun
May the good Lord call your name
May you always come

Mr. Rose, sell it with your charm,
The tattoos on your arm they show where you've been
You live your life, just an honest man
I’ll see you down the road sometime I hope
Thanks for breaking bread with a lesser friend

Come on down and sing your song
Sink into your yellow sun
May the good Lord call your name
And may you always come
Oooooooh Oh oh oh
Oooooooh Oh oh oh
Oooooooh Oh oh oh
Oooooooh Oh oh oh
Oh no no no no oh no no no no oh yeah Mr Rose
Feel in love, you feel in love, yeah Mr Rose, Oh in your head
Gotta reach out babe, gotta reach out now, now now, now, now, now, Mr. Rose
Oh Mr. Rose, oh no no, feel in love, feel in love, now now now now now, Mr Rose, in your head, oh yeah, oh no no no no no no , feel in love, in your head
