Track Name: WYOMING (Till I Met You)
WYOMING Words/Music: bill mallonee
Some say the world is a path you’re meant to ramble
an everything I believed in was in shambles
and so I headed for the big sky & warm weather
to find a place to get my head together

The Tetons are a grand sight to behold
summer on the trails of Yellowstone
the back country has a language I was learning
less about words and more about yearning

I thought there was nothing that I needed
and nothing I could not do
but, I never had friend....till I met you

all you lose...and all you try to win
all you do just to feel at home in your own skin
and faith becomes a coin that you toss
heads or tails, well, it all comes with a cost

and love? well, isn’t that the greatest of all gifts
you could ever present anybody with?
Love is all that makes you laugh & all that makes you cry
and Love? well, it’s just like Wyoming sky

from "BEATITUDE" Bill Mallonee & Vigilantes of Love, released 07 June 2013
Bill: guitars, harp, vocals, song
Track Name: SEND A PIECE OF MY HEART UP-AHEAD
SEND A PIECE OF YOUR HEART UP AHEAD
music/lyrics: bill mallonee

throw your last few belongings in backseat of your car
Hitching that wagon to a different star
nothing much left....in this old town
ya' stay in one place too long...and your roots get bound

this is were I walked out....walked out upon the stage
this is where I started, putting pen to the page
some things last forever...& some things? they just break
I’ll leave a part of me here...just for old times sake
chorus:
who knows what’s next?
What chapter? what verse?
could have been better...
could have been worse
now, I gave you my best
but that’s over & dead
Send a piece of your heart
up ahead

I can’t say it ain’t sad
I can’t say it’s all "OK"
life has these lessons
and you just learn ‘em anyway
and Love...well, that’s a gift
and it’s all you ever need
you learn to give back
what you freely received
