Track Name: White Flag (On With The Show)
White Flag Capo 2

G C G
Well if it’s true that this would happen before even time began
G D G
Then I guess I’ll just surrender because I’m doing all I can
G C G
Yes in vain I’ve risen early just to stumble home to late
G D G
To comfort my addictions and to teach myself to hate

A D A
And I’m gonna raise the white flag I’m gonna raise the black flag too
G D G
I’m gonna raise the white flag and sing this song for you

G C G
See these words they are not weapons but these streets brew honesty
G D G
And we’re all soldiers a journey yes we’re all pilgrims you and me

G C G
And I’m gonna raise the white flag I’m gonna raise the black flag too
G D G
I’m gonna raise the white flag and sing this song for you

G C G
Cause these minutes are momentum again the wires in the walls
G D G
I want to quit complaining but each time I stand I fall

G C G
And I’m gonna raise the white flag I’m gonna raise the black flag too
G D G
I’m gonna raise the white flag and sing this song for you

C G
So may all fear be forgotten as the memories fade away

Track Name: Carryin' The Banner
Carryin' The Banner (Capo 2 G C D)

G
Sitting on the back porch on a Sunday afternoon
all the kids are keeping company but it’s just not what i do
yes you told me that you love me as I walked out the front door
yes you gave me your integrity and I acted like a horror

G
And I’ll give you two thumbs up I’ll give you one in the hole
C D
I’ll give you everything, I’ll give you everything, I’ll give you everything I stole

G
I’m standing in the alley behind the record store
And I’m feeling kinda burnt out and I’m feeling pretty poor
Like the guy around the corner asking for a dollar bill
Just to buy his mom a present and to send her some good will

G
And I’ll give you two thumbs up I’ll give you one in the hole
C D
I’ll give you everything, I’ll give you everything, I’ll give you everything I stole

G
Well I treated your affection like the woman down the hall
And I don’t think I’m quite ready just to hear the trumpet call
But it’s time you met my family it’s time you met my friends
It’s time for celebrate it’s time we start to mend

G
And I’ll give you two thumbs up I’ll give you one in the hole
C D
I’ll give you everything, I’ll give you everything, I’ll give you everything I stole
Track Name: Holiday
Holiday Capo 3

G C D G
Do you remember dreams birth long ago in the innocence of youth
G C D G
And the grace we once believed in we treated as the truth
G C D G
Well this pain just keeps pushing me from the things that I love
G C D G
And the promise of tomorrow I’ve been dreaming of

G C D G
Have you ever left hope far behind in pursuit of anything
G C D G
Or felt after the day that things just weren’t as they seem
G C D G
Well today I grant permission yes this is your reprieve
G C D G
To set fire to the system, rebuild your broken dreams

C G C G
We’re gonna celebrate the new year holiday without any fear
C D G C D G
We’re gonna celebrate the new year dance until we disappear

G C D G
If you’re looking for some answers well I’ll probably disappoint
G C D G
And if you think you’ve found salvation well you might have missed the point
G C D G
But I know a redeemer who’s so faithful and true
G C D G
And if you have some questions he’ll answer them for you

C G C G
We’re gonna celebrate the new year holiday without any fear
C D G C D G
We’re gonna celebrate the new year dance until we disappear

Holidays no holiday without you truths is not as distant as it seems
C D G
And there’s a certain-mount of living without wisdom

C D G
Comes when we erase our dreams

C G C G
We’re gonna celebrate the new year holiday without any fear
C D G C D G
We’re gonna celebrate the new year dance until we disappear

C G C G
We’re gonna celebrate the new year holiday without any fear
C D G C D G
We’re gonna celebrate the new year dance until we disappear

Track Name: Legion Hall
Legion Hall Capo 2 G C

G
Took a ride on a rodeo train, took a ride on a rodeo train
C
But I never went back, never went back, never went back, never went back again
G
Took a walk down memory lane, took a walk down memory lane
C
But I never went back, never went back, never went back, never went back again
G
Had a dream of a legion hall where great men stand and fall
C
But I never went back, never went back, never went back, never went back again

G C D C E D B G
Because maybe I’m too shallow, maybe I’m too shallow to fall in love, to fall in love again

G
Had a dream of a baseball game ninth inning and the scores the same
C
But I never went back, never went back, never went back, never went back again
G
Bought a coffee and we shared a cup we both drank and we had enough
C
But I never went back, never went back, never went back, never went back again

G C D C E D B G

All Shall Be Well (Capo 3 G C A)

F C F C
From the dust on the tracks I knew that you weren’t coming back
F C F C
From the look in your eyes I knew that this was no surprise
F C F C
Through the smoke and the mirrors I knew that you had many fears
F C A G
Yes we’ve all been forsaken but you traded in the years

F C A G F C A G F C A G
And all shall be well, all shall be well and all manner of thing, shall be well

F C F C
In the silence of the morning when the sun has yet to speak
F C F C
I hear screams of no tomorrow but we’re just starting the week
F C F C
Yes you preached life and resurrection but you up and walked away
F C A G
And you took my hope and dreams and I can’t even pray

F C A G F C A G F C A G
And all shall be well, all shall be well and all manner of thing, shall be well

F C F C
From the warmth of the wind I know that this is not the end
F C A G
Yes my hope it will arise and I’ll see you again
F C F C
Because there’s nothing quite so special and there’s nothing quite so true
F C A G
As dancing with my lover which is what I’m gonna do

F C A G F C A G F C A
And all shall be well, all shall be well and all manner of thing
F C A F C A F C A G
Yes all manner of thing, all manner of thing shall be well
Track Name: Take It Easy
Take It Easy (Capo 2 G C D)

G
When you feel like you’re surrounded and you’re just standing in the line
C D
And the children are all crying maybe for the hundredth time
G
When the prophets are all preaching as the preachers scream in vain
C D
And the words become a melody and the melody a refrain

C D G C D G
And take it easy my friends and take it easy my friends

G
We’ll these records are recycled and I think I’ve lost my mind
C D
And the politics of boredom aren’t killing all my time

G C D
As the words become a melody and the melody a refrain

C D G C D G
And take it easy my friends and take it easy my friends

C D G

C D G
And the nights you spent alone with me
C D G C D G

Track Name: Glad Tidings
Glad Tidings (Capo 2 A G)

A
The sidewalks getting close as I’m falling off the fence
G
And streets are getting quiet as the riots making sense
A
And like a bullet in the dessert or a brick upside the head
G A
If it wasn’t for your hear with me I’d probably just be dead

C D A C D A
We bring you glad tiding we bring you great, great joy
A C D
And when our hopes in revolution, it means our dreams have been destroyed

A
These walls are getting closer as I’m losing my defense
G
And this letter that you wrote me is not making any sense
A
And like a woman caught in servitude I’d rather just deny
G A
Because these angels are all demons and I think I’m gonna fry

C D A C D A
We bring you glad tiding we bring you great, great joy
A C D
And when our hopes in revolution, it means our dreams have been destroyed

C D A C D A
We bring you glad tiding we bring you great, great joy
A C D
And when our hopes in revolution, it means our dreams have been destroyed

Track Name: Arizona - Live at Tomfest 2007
ARIZONA

Well I fell asleep in southern Arizona
in a place I swear I’ve never seen before
Another parking lot another Friday night
I think I found the perfect place to spend my life

And soon I’m headed for the state of Texas
where the love and death are all they sing about
Another parking lot another Friday night
I think I found the perfect place to spend my life

I’ve been to Little Rock and New Iberia
I’ve slept in Baton Rouge and I’m all alone
Another parking lot another Friday night
I think I found the perfect place to spend my life

I went to Miami and I wasn’t on the bill
lost all my dinner and remember it still
Another parking lot another Friday night
I think I found the perfect place to spend my life

Then came a tap tap tap on my window sill
the cops woke me up game me such a thrill
Another parking lot another Friday night
I guess I broke the law just to spend the night

So when your at your worst and I’ve let you down
and you’d pay all your enemies to swing back into town
Just know the parking lots and the Friday nights
Have taught me a few things and we will be alright

So bring on the parking lots and the Friday Nights
I think I found the perfect place to spend my life!
