When I Paint My Masterpiece
Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble
Ancient footprints are everywhere.
You could almost think that you’re seeing double
On the cold, dark night on the Spanish Stairs.
Tangled Up in Blue
Avett Brothers & Warren Haynes
Early one morning, the sun was shining
I was laying in bed
Wondering if she’d changed it all
If her hair was still red
The Man in Me
The Avett Brothers
The man in me will do nearly any task
And as for compensation, there’s little he would ask
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me
I Shall Be Released
The Avett Brothers with Bob Weir
They say everything can be replaced
They say every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here
One More Night
One more night, the stars are in sight
But tonight I’m as lonesome as can be
Oh, the moon is shinin’ bright
Lighting ev’rything in sight
But tonight no light will shine on me.
