Track Name: I'm Still Waiting
I’M STILL WAITING (Ray, Greene)

Last night, I was talking with Mary.
And she told me, she told me, she told me that she was mine.
But the next night she was out with Jimmy.
And I knew, and I knew, and I knew my time wasn’t right

Maybe It won’t be tomorrow-oh. But I know it’ll be next time for sure

But I’m Still Waiting… I’m Still Waiting..
I’m Still Waiting For You Now.

One night, we was having fun and got busted.
We were wrong they was right so we had to spend the night in jail.
The Next day we was waking up in Dallas.
And your dad was so made that he had to come and go our bail.

Maybe It won’t be tomorrow-oh. But I know it’ll be next time for sure

Cause I’m Still Waiting… I’m Still Waiting..
I’m Still Waiting For You Now.

- solo-

Maybe It won’t be tomorrow-oh. But I know it’ll be next time for sure

Yeah I’m Still Waiting… I’m Still Waiting.. I’m Still Waiting For You Now.

I’m Still Waiting… I’m Still Waiting.. I’m Still Waiting For You Now
Waiting For You Now.
Waiting For You Now.
Waiting For You Now.
Track Name: Gotta Get Back to You
Gotta Get Back to You (Ray, Greene)

Well I went away about 6 years ago, but I gotta get back to you.
Don’t want to spend another Summer alone under the covers, So I gotta get back to you.

I thought I’d never see your face again, until I heard from your best friend. -She tried to tell me that..

You, You wanted me back again too.
But I said wanna hear it from you. So I tell ya what I’m gonna do…
Yeah I gotta get back, gotta get back, gotta get back to you.

The first time I saw ya you were playing rough and tumble at the fairground after school.
Spending Summer afternoons in your bedroom, I didn’t know what to do. We was always off and on again, then I’d hear from your best friend. -She’d try to tell me that...

You, You wanted me back again too.
But I said I wanna hear it from you. So I tell ya what I’m gonna do
Yeah I gotta get back, gotta get back, gotta get back to you.

-She tried to tell me that...
You, You wanted me back again too.
But I said I wanna hear it from you. So I tell ya what I’m gonna do

It was fun remembering those times back then.
Don’t think I’ll see your face again.
I think I’ll stick with your best friend.

I Feel You Coming On (Greene, Ray)

You keep coming around
I’ve heard too much talk around town
Everyone is always putting you down
You oughta’ pick yourself up off the ground

I won’t do- what you want me to do Girl,
I’ve heard too many things about you
If everything that they say is true now
I won’t do the things you want me to

Still you keep coming on I feel you coming on yeah

I won’t do- what you want me to do Girl,

If everything that they say is true now

Still you keep coming on I feel you coming on yeah

Now you keep saying that you wanna be mine
But you only make me wanna’ run for cover
‘Cause you keep sayin’ that you wanna’ be mine
When you know that I am promised to another

Still you keep coming on I feel you coming on yeah
Still you keep coming on I feel you coming on yeah
Track Name: Northern Star
NORTHERN STAR (Ray, Greene)

When I'm lost at sea
Is there room on your boat for me?
'Cause I've been sinking like a stone
Yeah, are you going my way home?

Or in the desert in the sun
When I have nowhere left to run
And I'm stranded all alone
Are you going my way home?
----------------------------------
You'll always be the Northern Star for me,
and I can always follow you home.
Yeah, if you're going my way home.
----------------------------------
But like all stars at night
One day I'll lose your light
And when tomorrow comes
You'll be someone else's sun

Or will you only shine for me?
In the desert or the sea
Where ever I may roam
Are you going my way home?
----------------------------------
You'll always be the Northern Star for me,
and I can always follow you home.
Yeah, if you're going my way home
----------------------------------
- Life in this raging sea has been pulling down on me.
- Wandering around in the desert sands, I get buried in the barren wastelands.
- But in the darkness of night, from space I can see your light.. shine on me

SOLO

You'll always be the Northern Star for me,
and I can always follow you home.
Yeah, if you're going my way home

Yeah, are you going my way? Are you going my way?
If you're going home, are you going my way home?
Track Name: She's a Rebel
She's a Rebel (Ray, Prisk, Greene)

Well She’d always been a rebel, her guitar had too much treble.
Standing on the wrong side of the fence.
Walking real slow with her radio, singing ‘do ya do ya wanna dance’

She don’t remember the first of September,
she was gonna come to my show.
I waited all night, but she never showed, so I went ahead and rock n rolled.

Yeah.. and I said.. She don’t want to be the one tonight.
She’s gonna take it slow alright.
She was always on the go, crusin’ around in her GTO

She’s a rebel. She don’t need no one.
She’s a rebel. Out having too much fun.
She won’t stand around. You can’t tie her down. She’s a Rebel.


When she was a teenager living in Decatur, Her parents were always on the attack.
They were always too busy, so she turned to Thin Lizzy
And started fighting her way back.

- solo -

Didn't want to stay at home at night.
Music made everything alright.
She was always on the go, crusin’ around in her GTO

She’s a rebel. She don’t need no one.
She’s a rebel. Out having too much fun.
She won’t stand around. You can’t tie her down. She’s a Rebel.
