Track Name: Port of Tacoma
I left my broken heart at the Port of Tacoma
Because that is where my darling lover left me.
So now I’m on the road, I’m on the I-90
Going 70 miles an hour, running home.

I got the A.C. a blowin’
Got some sweet tunes in my ear.
The river’s running westward
But I’m headed east my dear.
Crossing stateline borders
And leavin’ the sea behind
I’m running home, I’m running home, I’m running home.


Home, is where I belong for now until this pain disappears
Cause I know, I know if I’d stayed in Tacoma my heart would have shed too many tears


Its been 10 hours on this long and dusty road
My eyes are getting heavy when suddenly I see
The shining shores of Flathead Lake are smiling back at me
I’m running home, I’m running home, I’m running home

And though I am reluctant
To leave my love behind,
This stunning Big Sky country
Is here to ease my mind
I’m afraid of feeling lonely
For my heart cannot be tamed
No darling I don’t need you, but I want you just the same.


But I’m home, its where I belong for now until this pain disappears
Cause I know, I know, I know if I’d stayed in Tacoma my heart would have shed too many tears

No, I don’t need no anchor
As long as I got friends
Can keep driving round these bends.
If ever you should ask me to come on back to you,
I’ll loyally return and we can start this love anew
I’ll loyally return and we can start this love anew
I’ll loyally return and we can start this love anew


Till then I’m home in the Rockies where I am surrounded by my lakes and my streams
Home where the pines and the tamaracks sway ever gently in the sweet Montana breeze,
They sway ever gently in the sweet Montana breeze,
Where they sway ever gently in the sweet Montana breeze…
Track Name: Aliens
I seen them floating lights, this land I must defend
They land their ships at night, right 'round the river bend
And all the cows are gone, been sucked up in those beams
Stayed awake 'til dawn, don't want them in my dreams
And I don't expect the government to help me out

I look out from the hill, see circles in the corn
I'd say I had my fill, a fighter I was born
The sky is full of fear, if fear is what you taught
I'm double-fisting beer. I'm gonna take a shot.

Take me to your leader, the little grey man said
I didn't wait much longer, I shot the grey man dead
Cause I don't trust the police, and I don't trust the feds
And I don't trust you either, my temper's got me red
And I don't expect the government to help me out

They want to fight a war, god damn I'll give them hell
Chewin' roasted peanuts and firin' of shells
Shoot em all up aliens is what I do the best
Cant have em extra terrestrials bein' pests

I seen them floating lights, this land I must defend
They land their ships at night, right 'round the river bend
And all the cows are gone, been sucked up in those beams
Stayed awake 'til dawn, don't want them in my dreams
Track Name: Barleywine Anthem
You know if we can walk together
There ain't a thing gonna stand in our way
We'll sail right through that nasty weather
To see the sun shine another day
