Track Name: The James Brown Yodel
Out on the range in the old old west,
there lived a cowboy considered the best,
and his legend spread far and all around,
this is his tale, the ballad of James Brown.

Now James he couldn't ride, he couldn't rope and he couldn't shoot,
He wore a green iridescent cowboy boots and purple snake skin boots,
but of all the things James did not do so well
One thing spread his fame, that was his get down yodel.

Say yodel-aa, yodel La ee ooo
youdel leyy he leyy
get down with yourelf mama,
youdel layee eee eh
youdel layee ee ee
I feel good, just like I knew I would

Now when it came to fighting James always took a stand,
He never backed down from another man,
and he always took the first punch from his enemy,
he'd look em in the eye and say...
Hit-me Hit-me Hit-me

Say yodel-aa, yodel La ee ooo
youdel leyy he leyy
get down with yourelf mama,
youdel layee eee eh
youdel layee ee ee
I feel good, just like I knew I would

Now when I met Mr. Brown he was about to die,
I went to see him, at his bed side,
I asked him Mr. Brown, what make ya yodel like ya do,
He looked me in the eye and said,

I gotta gotta hey good god etc.

Say yodel-aa, yodel La ee ooo
youdel leyy he leyy
get down with yourelf mama,
youdel layee eee eh
youdel layee ee ee
I feel good, just like I knew I would
Track Name: When a Cowboy's Day is Done
When a Cowboy's Day is Done
And it's time for him to have some fun,
Jump right in that little old pick up truck
head to town to have a little fun
When a Cowboy's When a Cowboy's Day is Done

And when a Cowboy's out doing his thing,
Cuttin' up the floor with that Texas Swing,
Ya know that two step and the old cotton-eyed Joe,
ain't never gonna be the same, anymore
When a cowboy, When a cowboy's day is done.

Round and a-Round and a-round they go,
doin' that two step and that old cotton-eyed Joe
Stompin' cowboy boots just a rasin' hell
When's it gonna stop, ya just never can tell.

And when a cowboy's day is done,
grab's a little cowgirl, special one.
and off into the sunset, they're gonna ride,
Just like old Roy with Dale at his side.
When a cowboy's, When a cowboy's day is done.
Track Name: Sure Was Fun
She was like a good dream
even better then she seemed
beautiful and tan, propped against that old hippie van,
she made the scene in her tight electric bell bottom blue jeans,
as I got near she stuck out her hand and said , here

Chorurs:
then she said, I love The Beatles,
and I said, I do to baby, but once in a while
I got ta get funky with some Down Town James Brown
sure was fun, passing that joint around.

The conversation deepened,
I tell ya, she was blowing my mind,
talkin" Quantum Physic, and the De-selection of nonlinear time,
and I was about to break into my theory on the time space continuum,
she stuck hand, and ya know baby, it's time for a liquor run.

solo
chorus

She told me she was gonna go back to school
get a master's degree, go out and save the planet
and protect all of the trees,
me I just got myself a ticket to some stupid stinking , war
40 years later, still don't know what the hell for.

Chorus
