WAITIN’ FOR THE AXE TO FALL©2010(Dec)
                                                                                    music/lyrics Jeff Powers

Never seems to be right
Especially in your eyes
Love coming from one side
It's just tough
To know

Never seems to be enough
Especially when your in love
You always got to push and shove
It's just tough
To know

Waitin' for my head to roll
And hear the executioners call
To lay my neck in the yoke
I'm just waitin', I'm just waitin'
Waitin' for the axe to fall

I'm just walking home
Humming a blues song
Hanging my head alone
It's just tough
To know

Staying up late at night
Smokin' dope and drinking wine
Laughing till the morning light
(But) it's just tough
To know

Waitin' for my head to roll
And hear the executioners call
To lay my neck in the yoke
I'm just waitin', I'm just waitin'
Waitin' for the axe to fall

BRIDGE (instr)

Love was right in my hand
But she waved her magic wand
Open it and now it's gone
It's just tough
To know
 
Playin' on my guitar
Pourin' out my heart
And picking the chords apart/and strummin’ the chords real hard
It's just tough
To Know


Waitin' for my head to roll
And hear the executioners call
To lay my neck in the yoke/on the block
I'm just waitin', I'm just waitin'
Waitin' for the axe to fall

Like walkin' to the gallis pole
Waitin'/hear for the preachers toll/vote
Hangman noose round my throat
I'm just waitin', I'm just waitin'
For them to let loose the rope

Waitin' for my head to roll
And hear the executioners call
To lay my neck in the yoke/on the block
I'm just waitin', I'm just waitin'
Waitin' for the axe to fall
