"Down At the Bar" words & music by Ron Leary © 2013 another one's gone way too early on now there's one less out there singing her tune i know it's true so many musicians die young but i'm hoping that i won't be one there's something so strong a brotherhood bond between those who are out there searching for a tune yet you go through life so many disrespecting dicks pass by ah shit there's nothing you can do about it but when the sun goes down you know where we'll be found down at the bar singing songs for those who care down at the bar singing songs for those who care down at the bar singing songs another one's gone and we'll keep singing on

Music is God 02:12
"Music Is God" words & music by Ron Leary © 2014 the work day ends, sun's long gone put on the headphones start drinking alone oh shake and sway, planted in my seat using up whatever energy's left that i got to keep holding on the mornings come hard, there's just no other way when you're a slave, it comes in so many ways but music is God, set yourself free let it roll on in, let it fill your veins all morning radio dj's should be shot buried six feet deep with their sexist, racist crap oh never, ever be heard from again free those radio waves from the shit they're saying at the coffee shop i know that glaze it's through decades of working each and every day oh i seen it in the mirror, if i bother to look up there's two black eyes a growing and a spirit near broke holding on, holding on holding on, holding on
