Track Name: You Gotta Pray
When your down and out, nothin’ to loose.
Head hung down, you got the blues.
You just wish, all your heart ache gone
You got to pray, for the strength to carry on

When your in trouble, no way home.
Don’t forget, your, never alone.
When you need a friend, to lean on,
You gotta pray, for the strength to carry on.

If your broke and hungry, no food to eat.
Ain’t got no bed, or shoes on your feet.
No silver lining, and you can’t take the heat,
You gotta pray, for the strength to carry on.

Health is failin’ … no hope in sight
Nothin’ seems, to be goin’ right.
When all your hopes, seem to be gone,
You got to pray, for the strength to carry on
Track Name: Take My Message
Take my message, to the other side.
Take my message, with you when you die.
Tell my people, I'll be comin' home.
Please take this message when you go.

No worldly possesions, in your hands.
You can't bring no riches, to the promise land.
All you got, is your soul.
Please take this message when you go.

When you see my mother...that sweet
mother of mine.
Tell her I love her... and I'm doin' fine.
And we'll be together, one of these days.
Together in heaven, like the good book says.

Can't bring no money, can't bring no fame,
All you got, is your good name.
So tell my people, I'm comin' home.
Please take this message when you go.

Now tell my father, that I miss him so.
He was the best man, I'd ever known.
Tell him I love him, please say it loud.
I still see him smilin', hope I make him proud.

( Verse 1 )
Track Name: Gotta Let You Go
Now I've tryed my best baby
You know it's true
But it just don't seem,
Like theres nothin' I can do.

Well I'm sorry,
Yes I'm sorry.
Well I'm so sorry baby ...
Guess I gotta let ya go.

I've tryed to change,
But you just can't see.
Every time I turn around,
Your up in arms with me.

Well I'm sorry,
Yes I'm sorry.
Well I'm so sorry baby ...
Guess gotta let ya go.

( Solo )

I do try baby
To be a good man
I try to make you happy,
Any way I can.
