LARGEMOUTH BASS     -    Hildebrandt (McGreth Music BMI)

When I was just a little boy

My Daddy he said to me

"Let me tell you about the largest

Largemouth Bass in history

He goes by the name of the General

And He lives down in the lake

If you try to land this fish

It'll be your last mistake"

My Daddy'd heard about this fish

When he was just a young man

My Uncle Randy had him in his boat

He took off Randy's hand

Men had tried and failed in bass boats

Others in canoes

I saw the look of defeat in my daddy's eye

I knew what I had to do

Take another pass by the hole

Take another cast to soothe my soul

Largemouth bass on my line

Largemouth bass on my mind

After everyone had gone to sleep

I snuck out about three o'clock

I took all of my fishing gear

And I went down to the dock

I took the keys to my Daddy's boat

Silently I paddled away

When I gunned the engines

The vibrations seemed to say

Take another pass by the hole

Take another cast to soothe my soul

Largemouth bass on my line

Largemouth bass on my mind

I trolled around for hours

The hours seemed like days

I tried al of my favorite baits

But I wasn't getting any play

I stuck a whole chicken on a giant hook

And dropped it overboard

And let me tell you people what happened next

Made me say "Oh my Lord!"

Something hit my line like a diesel train

Bent my poor rod in half

My arms were nearly dislocated

I had no breath to laugh

After 45 minutes of a vicious fight

I landed that scaly freak

When I got him up in the boat.

He began to speak.......

"I go back to the native man,

I go back to honest Abe

Some men walked around free,

Others had to be slaves.

Some men wore fancy clothes,

Others had to wear chains.

Some men were treated like animals,

Others thought they had bigger brains"

You know there's some kind of people

Want to make it like it was back then

Keeping all the money and power

In the hands of evil men.

We'll be good godamned if we let em'

and the old fish said to me,

"I live in the water, you live o the land,

we both want Liberty!"

Take another pass by the hole

Take another cast to soothe my soul

Largemouth bass on my line

Largemouth bass on my mind

Take another pass by the hole

Take another cast to soothe my soul

Largemouth bass on my line

Largemouth bass on my mind

METATRON   Hildebrandt/Ferraro (McGreth Music BMI)

Meaning of this song

Metatron is on the phone

Asking Questions without answers

Gets you when you're all alone

Did he part the waters?

Was it just a tidal change?

The answers to these questions

Always sound so very strange

Bringing you the message

Showing you the light

Cataclysmic changes

Almost overnight

Meaning of this song

Metatron is on the phone

Asking Questions without answers

Gets you when you're all alone

Virgin Conception

Or just a very special boy

So many true believers

Get so easily annoyed

Bringing you the message

Showing you the light

Cataclysmic changes

Almost overnight

Meaning of this song

Metatron is on the phone

Asking Questions without answers

Gets you when you're all alone

THE SUN GOES UP    Hildebrandt (McGreth Music BMI)

The sun goes up

The sun goes down

The moon comes out at night

You might not believe

But somebody loves you

And everything is gonna work out right

Troubles have come

Troubles have passed

Like old Uncle Bob said

The first one will later be last

The sun goes up

The sun goes down

And its all...all comin around

Ride into Jerusalem

Like some kind of boss

One week later

They nail your ass to a cross

The sun goes up

The sun goes down

And its all...all comin around

You could be a lawyer

You could be a liar

You'll be cooking pigeons

Around a garbage can fire

The sun goes up

The sun goes down

And its all...all comin around

Standing on the corner

A lookout for the hole

Ten years later

Could be playing in the super bowl

The sun goes up

The sun goes down

And its all...all comin around

Sittin in the county jail

Just passing the time

Or you could be on a third date

Strolling along the high line

The sun goes up

The sun goes down

And it's all...all coming around

You might feel

Like it's the end of your rope

Someone comes and ties on some string

Gives you a little hope

The sun goes up

The sun goes down

And its all...all comin around
