Long Way Home (H. Smalley) I've been searchin' for love like this About half my life I've been lookin' for a woman Who won't be cruel Wanna make you my wife I searched every corner of the nation Wanna do it right I gotta find a love That will be true to you You know its right, that's right (Chorus) I've searched for you In my dreams at night Eyes so blue and lips so fine Makes me want you all the time Babe I'm gonna lose control Ya, going out of my head Let me whisper in your ear It’s gonna be alright, that's right (Repeat Chorus) I've been searchin' for a love like this about half my life I'm going to follow Won’t be cruel, gotta treat me right I've searched every corner of the nation gotta do it right Eyes so blue, lips so fine Makes me want you all night That's right! (Repeat Chorus)

I.O.U 03:00
I.O.U. (H. Smalley) I'm going crazy I'm going insane Can’t make no money Playing this foolish game Those politicians threatin' us slaves I owe you! I'm going crazy I'm outta' control Deficit spending rob my body and soul They keep coming stiff and cold I owe you! All this foolish debt I'm going crazy I'm outta' my head I'm so broke my pocket book's dead Crime is the only way to get ahead I owe you! I'm going crazy I'm outta' contol They keep coming and taking my dough Save up my money for when I get old I owe you! I'm going crazy this worlds a shame Death and taxes are to blame You're nothing without fame I owe you! Mister Uncle Sam he's knockin’ on my door He keeps pounding til’ I give him more I got nothing I said to him I owe you! I need some money, I need a loan When I went in they told me no I asked them why? I was told I owe you! I OWE YOU!!!!

Same Old Story (H. Smalley) I've gotta' keep pushin' You know I'll never quit Got a feeling in my heart You know I'll never stop You know I'm going to push it hard It’s the only way I know You know I'm going give it all I got Straight to the top! (Pre-chorus) Don't turn your back on tomorrow Don't turn your back on yesterday Don't turn away You know you'll hear them say Don't turn away, they call you today! (I bet you hear them today!) (Chorus) It's the same old story Same old grind It’s the same old story Same old grind! You know I been playing this game for a long time You know I've been playin' tough You know this love of crime You know there's got to be a better way You know there's got to be a better way You know I know that you'd better not stand in the way Before the attack! (Repeat Pre-chorus & Chorus) You know I'm going to push it hard There’s no use turnin' back You know I'm going give all You know where it's at So don't even think about it I'll take you down for the count You think you got all the answers For what I say I shout! (Repeat Pre-chorus & Chorus) SAME OLD GIND-GRIND- GRIND!

Cry of Love 05:33
Cry of Love (H. Smalley) You say I don't have a right To carry this sign To stand up and fight For what I believe in All right! (Pre-Chorus) You might think I'm a little old fashion I fight for the cause with a holy passion There's no stopping me Set the children free I'm crying to the world (Chorus) Cause it's the cry of love It’s the cry of love You know I never listen to what you say I'm gonna take it to the judgment day (Repeat Pre-chorus & Chorus) (Bridge) You know this killin’ is crazy This murderin' gotta stop There'll be tears in heaven The hammer’s going to drop You know I'm going to stand up For what I believe in You know I'm going to let my heart Believe it!
