Track Name: So Long Alex
So long Alex
Though I never got to see your band
I'm your fan
Never been to Memphis
Thought I'd go someday and shake your hand
there's no way I can

Oh My Soul
What's goin ahn, you wrote us the letter
Back of a car
And September Gurls Always make me feel better
Paul Always told me never travel to far

They wouldn't get the reference
I play your records for anyone I can
Cause I'm your man
You're my Hendrix
I'll never know what's coming off of your left hand
I can't comprehend
Track Name: I'll Be Right There
Maybe this one’s just my pride
The knacker’s yard can use my hide
They called me Boxer the last time
I broke my back to get my dime
And now my hands hurt to the bone
With no check nothing to show

I hope I wake up when you call on me, sometimes I get so scared.
And if you make up, your mind for me, then I will be right there.
You know I’ll be right there.

These days I hardly leave the house
Curled up aching on the couch
Too many thoughts race through my head
Have a drink and go to bed
There’s no comfort there at all
The weight of problems and feeling small
Track Name: 13 Hours
The king’s lawyer aims to confuse again
Unanswered charge is forced up to a head
Only one man knows how to take a stand
Heroic spirit so few can understand

13 hour speech checks the king again
While rubes and pawns consume the kingly spread
Former challenger betrays what he said
Juxtaposing power hungry and reasoned men

You are your father’s son and you've proven it
I see the promise of the work as his delegate
Two years pass and I’ll work as your surrogate
Hoping that freedom light still burns eminent
