“I’m Chasing The Moon” — lyrics & chords

Words and music by Andru Bemis
  1. I’m chasing the moon, I’m riding the line. Just trying to make up the time. I’m on my way back to you, I’m trying to get back to you. If you tell me not to ride this way again I don’t ever want to see the day. Pray the Lord my soul to keep my tires on the road. Till I see you with the sun in your eyes in the morning, I’ll follow the moon
  2. I’m chasing my heart, I don’t know where it’s gone. I know it won’t be long before it shows up at your door, I’ll find it at your door. If you tell me not to knock on your door again I don’t ever want to see the day. Pray the Lord my soul to keep, I’ll follow my heart

“When You Get to Heaven” — lyrics & chords

Words and music by Andru Bemis

When I die, all I can say is I tried, I tried, I tried so hard. When I die, all I can say is I tried.

  1. When you get to heaven won’t you put a good word in for me? God knows I need all the help I can get. When you get your mansion, will you save a room for me, even though I ain’t there yet? Cause I’m on my way, every day I get a little bit closer to you, my friend. So when you get to heaven, will you put a good word in for me
  2. When you see Saint Peter please tell him that I’m on my way, even though I screw it up every day. When you see Saint Peter, please ask him to be easy on me; I’ve been the best man that I can be. Cause I’m on my way, every day I get a little bit closer to you, my friend. So when you see Saint Peter, please ask him to be easy on me

“Beulah” — lyrics & chords

Words and music by Andru Bemis

Beulah won’t you please come home, Beulah won’t you please come home? I’ve been trying to get back to you for so long, Beulah won’t you please come home?

  1. Beulah, I don’t know what to do. Beulah, I just don’t know what to do. Everytime I turn around another war’s coming through. Beulah, I just don’t know what to do
  2. I ain’t got no place to call my own. A motherless child ain’t got no home. I’ve got sticks, I’ve got stones, got your blood in my bones, but I ain’t got no place to call my own
  3. I’ve gotta keep my mind on you, I just can’t take my mind off of you. If I ever lose my mind, you’ll know my heart ain’t true. Beulah, gotta keep my mind on you

“15,000 Miles & 30 Days” — lyrics & chords

Words and music by Andru Bemis

My love lives on the ocean, my love lives on the bay. As boats go by, does she hear them say, “fifteen thousand miles and thirty days?”

  1. I’ll spend my nights in the city, on the railroad every day. As trains roll by, their lonesome cry says, “your love lives fifteen thousand miles away”
  2. When I reach the ocean, when I find the bay, I’ll watch the boats as they pass by. Will I see my love in thirty days?

“Put the Lights Out, Maggie” — lyrics

Words and music by Andru Bemis

Put the lights out, Maggie
We don’t need them anymore
Sun come down from heaven gonna light up the world
Dry your eyes my darling
You won’t never cry no more
Sun come down from heaven gonna light up the world

When the sun comes up you know he brings us a new day
Shows us a new way of life in the world
When the sun comes up you know he brings us a new day
Shows us a new way of life in the world

I know you’re tired, Maggie
I’m tired too
Sun come down from heaven gonna light up the world
I’m gonna keep my eyes on Jesus
Gonna do what he wants me to
Sun come down from heaven gonna light up the world

When the sun comes up you know he brings us a new day
Shows us a new way of life in the world
When the sun comes up you know he brings us a new day
Shows us a new way of life in the world

Put the lights out, Maggie, we don’t need them anymore
Sun come down from heaven gonna light up the world
