Beau James - Indigo Road I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road Just leaving behind all the things I own, Except an old guitar and a bag of clothes, Yeah I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road Yeah I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road Cause I’ve been wondering what I might see Between the Northern Lights and the Florida Keys Maybe the plains out west are the place for me Oh but don’t know what I might see. Unless I just Pack it up and hit the road And set on out for the great unknown And learn some lessons from every place I go Oh but I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road Yeah I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road And I’ve been wondering who I might meet Maybe a ranching man or and Indian chief Maybe the woman I’ll marry is waiting for me Oh but I don’t know who I might meet No I don’t know who I might meet But I’ve been looking for something to do Cause I have nothing but time and nothing to lose But is this Indigo Road is the one I choose Well maybe then I’d have something to do If I just Pack it up and hit the road And set on out for the great unknown And learn some lessons from every place I go Oh but I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road Yeah I’ve been dreaming about hitting that road

Beau James - Carolina’s Calling Carolina’s calling my name She wants to see my face again Carolina’s calling my name ‘cause she misses me Now she’s begging me To come back home To her again And she begs me to stay as long as I can To come back home To her again And she does her best to make me understand That the home for me will always be Just holding her hand But Carolina’s never the same She’s got the fear that I’m gonna pack my bags again But Carolina understands That I’ve got to go But she still begs me so To come back home To her again And she begs me to stay as long as I can To come back home To her again And she does her best to make me understand That the home for me will always be Just holding her hand That the home for me will always be Just holding her hand

Beau James - When I Still Had You Is it wrong that I miss you babe? Cause my hands start to shake the more time your away. Is it wrong that I’ve been counting days? Without you by my side grind my teeth through the night And now everything that I do Oh it makes me crave for you Oh yeah everything that I do Seemed much better when I had you Cause you were always there for me From the first friend that died to the last time I cried Oh yeah you, you take my pain away As you numb down my mind, Push my troubles aside And now everything that I do Oh it makes me crave for you Oh yeah everything that I do Seemed much better when I had you But I’m not gonna say you never did me no wrong And I’m not gonna say I don’t miss our night alone I just want to say that I’ll miss you everyday But I can’t come back And I won’t come back Home Even though everything that I do Make me crave baby, make me crazy for you Oh yeah everything that I do seemed much better when So much better when I still had you Yeah it was better when so much better when So much better when I still had you It was better when so much better when I still had you.

Beau James - Demon On My Mind I’ve got a demon on my mind She calls out to me each night And even though I turn away She drives her claws into me She calls my name and I obey cause She takes away my pain She calls my name and I obey cause She numbs the guilt and shame And I I’ve been holding on to her so long that I, I don’t know if I’ve got the strength just to let her go. But I know I’ve got to say goodbye Cause if I don’t then I die But she just takes my self control And leaves me lying on the floor. She calls my name and I obey cause She takes away my pain She calls my name and I obey cause She numbs the guilt and shame And I I’ve been holding on to her so long that I, I don’t know if I’ve got the strength just to let her go. One visit and I’m feeling fine Two visits and I start to shine Three visits I begin to sing Four visits I don’t feel a think Five visits I forget my name Six visits I begin to scream Seven visits and I’m falling down Eight visits and I hit the ground And I I’ve been holding on to her so long that I, I don’t know if I’ve got the strength just to let her go. And I I’ve been holding on to her so long that I, I don’t know if I’ve got the strength just to let her go. But I’ve got a demon on my mind She calls out to me each night

Beau James - Best If You Just Leave Pack your bags and hit the road And don’t look back ‘cause you’re not welcome here no more I’ve changed the locks on all my doors So the keys you got Well they won’t fit them anymore Cause I’m tired of playing all your games I’m tired of even speaking your name I’m tired of listening to the words you say to me So whoever you are I think it’s best if you just leave. I took your pills and I flushed them all Cause I don’t need a crutch to walk away from you. Cause I’m a man now and I’ll stand strong I’ve got the scars to prove that loving you was wrong Cause I’m tired of playing all your games I’m tired of even speaking your name I’m tired of listening to the words you say to me So whoever you are I think it’s best if you just leave here tonight Just leave my pride behind Just leave here tonight And leave my heart behind And I think I’ll finally be all right. Cause I’m tired of playing all your games I’m tired of even speaking your name I’m tired of listening to the words you say to me So whoever you are I think it’s best if you just leave.

Beau James - Heart Is What You've Found I caught you looking at me Now I'm wondering what you see That keeps your eyes so fixated on me Is it just my boyish smile Or could it be my sense of style Cause I can't figure it out for the life of me Are you thinking you want to give me a shot Are you thinking that what you want is what I've got Are you thinking that I'd fit into your plans Cause if that is what you're thinking then Come take my hand cause I won't let you down If I could only find the words to say to you now I won't let you down But if a heart is what you're looking for A heart is what you've found I try to signal you Try and get you to make a move But you keep me sitting here on this stool What's it gonna take for me to turn you on Show me the stories engraved in your arms Cause I'm tired of waiting on you Are you thinking you want to give me a shot Are you thinking that what you want is what I've got Are you thinking that I'd fit into your plans Cause if that is what you're thinking then Come take my hand cause I won't let you down If I could only find a way to show you now That I won't let you down But if a heart is what you're looking for A heart is what you've found I don’t want to get hurt again and I’m afraid to just jump right in but maybe if you trust me maybe if you let me in I’d make you understand That I won’t let you down If I could only find the way to show you now That I won’t let you down But if a heart is what you’re looking for then I won’t let you down If I could only find the way to show you now That I won’t let you down But if a heart is what you’re looking for If a heart is what you need it’s what you’ve found Then a heart is what you’ve found now Then a heart, Then a heart, Then a heart is what you’ve found now

Beau James - Ghosts of Your Past Took the clothes that you gave to me, Bagged them up for a charity, And I gave them all away I gave them away and. Took the notes that you wrote to me Soaked them all in gasoline And I burned them all today I burned them all today ‘Cause I’ve learned now you can’t move on With ghosts of your past living on ya Yeah I’ve learned now you can’t move on With ghosts of your past living on ya Left the house where you lived with me Moved out here to Tennessee And I sold that house away Sold that house today Took the car that you drove with me Gave the keys to a man in need And I watched him drive away I watched him drive away ‘Cause I’ve learned now you can’t move on With ghosts of your past living on ya Yeah I’ve learned now you can’t move on With ghosts of your past living on ya But I won’t say that I never loved you ‘Cause I loved you know I loved you And I won’t say that I never cared ‘Cause you know I cared I know I cared Won’t say that I never loved you ‘Cause I loved you know I loved you Won’t say that I never cared But how can I care when you’re not here? Took the hear that you gave to me Sent it back to your family Cause I’m moving on today I’m moving on today Met a girl who’s in love with me Want to give her my everything So I’m letting go today Letting go of you today. ‘Cause I’ve learned now you can’t move on With ghosts of your past living on ya Yeah I’ve learned now you can’t move on With ghosts of your past living on ya

Beau James - Lucky Star Before you go and say goodbye I wanted to give you a special night Something to remember me by While you’re gone I planned out a big surprise To get out of the city and escape the lights Cause I want to show the night sky To you So when you’re gone Look up to the sky and find that lucky one That star I’m wishing on For you come back home. When you’re gone Look up to the sky and find the lucky one The star I wishing on For you to come back home again I’m breaking all my rules tonight Cause I’m coming on strong with my heart on the line But something tells me that’s its fine With you So before we go and say goodnight I’ll kiss you under the starry sky And make damn sure you know which one is yours So when you’re gone Look up to the sky and find that lucky one That star I’m wishing on For you come back home. When you’re gone Look up to the sky and find the lucky one The star I wishing on For you to come back home again ‘Cause I’ll wait for you until you come back I’ll wait for you I’ll wait for you until you come back And I’ll wait for you So when you’re gone Look up to the sky and find that lucky one That star I’m wishing on For you come back home. When you’re gone Look up to the sky and find the lucky one The star I wishing on For you to come back home again

Beau James - Be In Your Life Cigarettes always help me step outside On the nights that I see he by your side And all my jealously starts to grip me tight So I play along and pretend I’m doing fine ‘Cause you moved on and expect that so did I But all these memories just keep gripping me tight Every time I see your lips just begging for a kiss goodnight I want to be that man that’s waking up next to you Want to be the lips you kiss at night and in the morning too Want to be that plan that you say you’re sticking to Want to be the hand you hold on the day that you say I do ‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life ‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life As time goes on I try to fade these thoughts of you But it feels wrong and the only thing to do Is find the words to finally say to you Like I’m sorry for that night But I was afraid that you couldn’t love me true I want to be that man that’s waking up next to you Want to be the lips you kiss at night and in the morning too Want to be that plan that you say you’re sticking to Want to be the hand you hold on the day that you say I do ‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life ‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life Cause if I never said goodbye Then I’d be holding you tonight But what I said to you that night Well I lied I lied ‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life ‘Cause I wanna be the man you’ve always wanted Be the man you’ve dreamt of all your life Wanna be in your life Wanna be in your life

Beau James - 10 Shots 30 days since I lost you and I’ll drink for 30 more till I find myself a savior that doesn’t come from a liquor store Cause I made good friends with Johnny, Jack and old Jim Beam But I hope I find me a lover soon Before my body gives up on me. Cause it’s one more shot to the memories That I can’t seem to forget And two more shots to the thought of you Off with someone else And three more shots just to numb the pain That I’m feeling deep inside And four more shots to uncertainty That I’ll live me a lonely life, Until I find me somebody new to love Until I find me somebody new to love Until I find me somebody new to love I guess the bottle will be good enough. Cause all the lips that I try to kiss They don’t taste the same. Cause they ain’t got that sweet cherry lip gloss That used to drive me insane. And every time I smell your perfume On another girl I try to finish my glass, Close my tab but there’s a whole top shelf saying something else. Cause it’s one more shot to the memories That I can’t seem to forget And two more shots to the thought of you Off with someone else And three more shots just to numb the pain That I’m feeling deep inside And four more shots to uncertainty That I’ll live me a lonely life, Until I find me somebody new to love Until I find me somebody new to love Until I find me somebody new to love I guess the bottle will be good enough.
