When I look at my phone And I see what's going on in the world today Should I laugh or should I cry Or wonder who what when and why it ever got this way What can two more people do When living life feels like a zoo Do we close up shop or open a door? In a world where more or less Is masquerading as the best There is one thing I know for sure I’m still in love with you, I keep following my heart That’s always been the truth, And I knew from the start That we could make it over any hurdles in our way I’ll always keep you closer, so that you can hear me say I’m still in love with you The world can always change We could all be rearranged when someone draws a line As long as seasons dance their dance And we can harvest what we plant Just gotta keep in mind There's always somewhere we can fly Before another day goes by And we take another try at this game I may have blundered down this path But when I look back One thing has always stayed the same CHORUS I want to make this chance you took with me be the one Take us to the place where we can follow the sun I want to make this chance you took with me be the one Take us to the place where we can follow the sun CHORUS

In my dreams I've seen you in the movies, In technicolor on the silver screen Storyline always seems to elude me Because you steal every scene CHORUS: With a sense of elegance in a world of disarray You are there in the moment those lovely dreams take me away We dance like Fred and Ginger in a Broadway play When those lovely dreams take me away In my dreams we’re flying in the moonlight Like Peter Pan we’re sailing through the sky The wind is like a river in the midnight Somehow we just know that we can fly CHORUS

In my younger days, we’d set the telescope out on the ground Gaze up at the Milky Way and the planets all around We knew the names of stars and moons and where they could be found CHORUS We could watch the stars, as the heavens turn around us We could make them ours, till our dreams come home to find us We could watch how far, trails are burning across the sky We could be a part… of their never-ending night We could watch the stars Nowadays our cities send a haze into the night Hard to find a place to be where the skies are not so bright Got to get into the wilderness to see all the starlight (so) Civilized and primitive have got to learn to share Before the world is emptied of its water, soil, and air We can save the planet, there’s enough of us who care We could watch the stars, as the heavens turn around us We could make them ours, till our dreams come home to find us We could watch how far, trails are burning across the sky (yeah, yeah, yeah) We could be a part, of their never-ending night (ohhhhhh oh) We could watch the stars (watch the stars) x4 (Alternate lyric) An earthquake shook the ground and LA lost its city lights The people cried ‘what’s in the sky, mysterious and bright?’ They had seen the Milky Way for the first time in their lives (Now)

I never felt lonely as I do now that you're gone I've never been so lost, so mystified so all alone What can I do to make you turn around and come back home to me I never felt lonely I never felt lonely I never felt lonely till you were gone Now you're gone and I'm so empty, nothing left inside How long will I be looking at the world through the tears that fill my eyes Will I see another sunset turn into midnight skies with you I never felt lonely I never felt lonely I never felt lonely till you were gone (till you were gone) I must have been blind I could not see Something that you couldn't see in me This ain't the way it was supposed to be I never felt lonely I never felt lonely, I never felt lonely I never felt lonely till you were gone (I never been hungry) I'd never been hungry for love till I wanted you Never knew how to be part of anything that felt so new Talking to you I found it was easy to be true and yet so Complicated knowing it could fall apart with one wrong word I never felt lonely, I never felt lonely I never felt lonely till you were gone Till you were gone, No I never felt lonely, Till you were gone, Never felt lonely, Till you were gone I never felt lonely

Like a scene from the boulevard of coffee beans You drank your java with a lot of creamer Your voice was mocha latte and I was just a screamer who Had a couple thoughts about fixing our downtown blues (by) Putting our hearts together, Putting our hearts together Putting our hearts together making one from two Taking our time, asking questions Looking at life from ALL directions Picking the best ones to see the journey through And the more we talk about it, the easier it is to do Just like me your heart was broken Trusting in love again was gonna take some time And now that our paths are going With the same destination on our mind And with a love that’s true, we’ll be Putting our hearts together making one from two Putting our hearts together

Had to go and find wide open spaces Count the stars beneath the western skies In the desert, you were my oasis On the mountain you gave me wings to fly I can’t wait to see you in the morning Holding hands and sharing dreams come true You might be surprised to hear the way my heart beats when you’re near And how much I enjoy just holding …. You…'Cause when we turn around Somewhere else or homeward bound Happy that we're still around to live our dream come true And here we are in Texas where I fell in love with you Crossing half an ocean just to find you Making waves as high as mountain tops Seize the day, and that way will unwind you Let it play, the song need never stop I know we’ll be together when we’re older Wearing cowboy boots and singing songs I tip my cowboy hat, you shrug your shoulders Glad we got a road to get along

If you make it to Samoa Better have your swimming shoes on Next time that you wake up in Samoa Don't be surprised to find the island gone It won't take long to bring the mountain down Floating through the underbrush to get yourself to town By tomorrow the ocean front be lapping at your door Gonna find there is no place to lay your head no more In Samoa Can you take me to Samoa I've been waiting for the plane Need to find myself in Samoa Before it's gone, I hope you understand Cost you an arm and a leg And you might have to lend an ear To find out how to just get near...Samoa Might have to scrimp and beg And the cost might be too dear But I'd do it all to just get near Samoa Let's make plans to meet up in Samoa I hear it's nice any time of year Set up our beach chairs on the shore Sit back and watch the island disappear

If our paths should never cross again That is something I could never stand And if love should scatter into the wind It would come back again in the end ...'cause All my dreams are wrapped up in your smile It's okay if it takes a while for you to believe You are my dream come true -- All my dreams are wrapped up in you All my dreams, baby, they're wrapped up in you I could never watch you walk away I had to stop and say whatever I could To find out where you are to walk you to your car To play you songs on my guitar A moment etched upon my brain When you remembered my name Nothing ever was the same -- Too much to lose and everything to gain My heart flew because it knew

Back in the day We’d gather round a microphone and play Play our songs Ones we knew and others that we’d practice all night long Going strong ||:Dancin’ around that one mic, dancin’ around that one mic to play:|| Hear the sound Harmonies that soared up to the clouds Lay it down and Feel like we’d be right back on the mountain Going strong Fiddle, banjo, mandolin, high notes carried in the wind Guitar, doghouse bass complete the sound Horsehair bows and metal slides, fingers, picks, strings of wire Harmonies and dobro turn-arounds Take your break Play the notes you know, make no mistake Lay'em down and Feel like we’d be right back on the mountain Going strong

As I look around and feel like this is home What will I hold on to in the days when I am gone Though I know that spirit never dies And we're forever, you and I I sometimes can't imagine moving on Take me to that place again Where you and I danced in the wind Tell me stories of the days before the fall [I don't think I remember them at all] [That's how we remember them at all] When we were young, and the world was old All the stories, we heard them told Sitting round the fire in the night Searching for the answers in the light To the secrets we might see unfold When we were old and the world was young And all the stories, we heard them sung The moon can dim the starshine in the night And even though the end might be in sight It's clear to see the story's just begun

It's a horse back ride In a forest glade Through a covered bridge Over a stream to wade across It's a merry go round In a wedding gown Mist floats off the water Bringing life into the trees Dew falls softly on the flowers Nectar kissed by bees We do remember these These Melancholy Days With you don't go away These Melancholy Days With me It's a complicated Circumstance That leaves us here With second chances to dwell on It's a promise to keep No one can see 'til it's gone
16.
If you're careful with the things you choose You can get through the day without blowing a fuse Keep an open mind, but not too Know what it is you let and don't let through What I need the most, prayer and the Holy Ghost Couple of guitars, some clothes Pencil, Paper, Poems, and Prose Dreams can fly and words can disappear Nothing often comes from hope and fear It's all too true you got to work to win Do it right or do it all again Go where you want and do what you want to do How you go about it's up to you High road, low road, ride, crawl or walk or run Punch your ticket when the journey's done

I woke up, it was sunny Then the clouds took over, funny How it didn’t take so long for the rain to keep on falling Running through the wilderness We cry out and bang our chest And wonder that we never take for granted why we love So here we are Good to be here Good to see you now Here we are Holding on to right now We’ve come so far Here we are Good to be here Good to see you now Here we are Holding on to right now, here we are Morning filled with lightning flashing But soon enough the sun was casting Shadows on the wall, outlines of our heads together As we studied one another Slowly smiles began to flutter Back and forth, we knew this was a good day to be here Fell asleep to distant thunder Dreams were filled with awe and wonder Flying through the days and nights and places we could be Pitching pennies in a fountain Quarter moon climbs up a mountain Shining on the wishes that we've dreamed of coming true

about

Have Folk, Will Rock combines the best of Raggedy Edge's folk and rock traditions, with several genres in between. Country, blues, bluegrass, world, and adult contemporary share centerstage with the duo's writing.

The arrangement of the songs on the album is "very cohesive and flows well": Juliet Fromholt, WYSO Radio, Yellow Springs, OH

"The recording quality is good, everything is appropriately audible and the arrangements are open/airy where appropriate, denser in other spots (Still in Love With You, Samoa). Vocal arrangements were good to very spiffy in a couple of spots, Bob’s playing is its usual amazing hotshot stuff but without being overbearing or slipping into cliché." Tom Armbruster, Senescent Musician/Singer-songwriter/4th class Thaumaturge.

"I know we have this CD around here somewhere." The Weez, KZYR Radio, Vail, CO
