Track Name: Devil Child
DEVIL CHILD

Stand down the darkness
stand in the light
Stand on the borders of the western fires
cut off your wings you devil child and
cut off your wings

ashes to ashes, dust to dust
the war is raging and its blood for blood
cut off your wings you devil child and
cut off your wings

angel of darkness, washes her hands
leave the whole world to fend for themselves
cut off your wings you devil child and
cut off your wings

you devil child you

cover the earth in, fire and sand and
wash it away lord, wash it away
the devil saw you, in the flesh and
couldnt say a thing

cuz he not of heaven, he not of hell
born of this earth but not of this world
cut off your wings you devil child and
cut off your wings

you devil

Masses will march and cover the earth and
blood red rivers that bring all the end
send your command to put out the flames and
cut off your wings

ashes to ashes, dust to dust
the war is raging and its blood for blood
cut off your wings you devil child and
cut off your wings

the angel of darkness washes her hands
leave the whole world to fend for themselves
cut off your wings you devil child and
cut off your wings

you devil child you
Track Name: All Broken In
ALL BROKEN IN

Im so lonesome now cant get to sleep
It only gets worse, every time i drink
cant talk about it now, be leaving soon
get to walking on, my worn out boots
Their all broken in, just like me

Yea you dont know, trouble ive seen
Its all buried in, these guitar strings
and ive been bloodied up, been all burnt out
my old lonesome heart, dont mean a thing
cuz ive been thinking that, well id be better off
on my own

cuz i dont hurt no one, and i dont hurt no one
when im alone
and im so tired of, been thinking bout
how things have been
and thats just how it is, lord aint that how it is
all broken in

sometime got rough, in the country side
and id get too drunk, and id get too loud
sometime there'd be blood, broken glass
it turns out alright, blood washes out

well ive been thinking that, well id be better off
on my own
cuz i dont hurt no one, well i dont hurt no one
when im alone
and im so tired of, been thinking bout
how things have been
and thats just how it is, lord aint that how it is
all broken in
Track Name: Where I Wont Ever Be Lonely
WHERE I WONT EVER BE LONELY

Well its almost 3AM and all them bars are closing down
feeling like there aint no where to go in this here town
but ive been thinking about a girl, i dont ever see around here anymore

and now all the pretty girls are going home with other boys
shows already over and im still out making noise
yea i thought i got a look from a sweetheart in the crowd but im not sure

as im packing up my guitar and i order one last drink
shes looking at me from the corner, cute as any girl could be
but ive seen enough to know, she dont want nothing from me anyhow

so all them sweethearts think they want you , til they know what youve been through
try playing cat and mouse, as if you got something to loose
but i aint chasing after no one, cuz i aint in the mood right about now

just want to go where i wont ever be lonely
and i want to drive til that old highway ends
and i want to live where that bottles never empty
and you dont know my name

just want to go where i wont ever be lonely
and i wanna wake up where id never see your face
and i wanna live where that bottles never empty
and you dont know my name

Now everybody's leaving with an angel on their arm
and im underneath the street lights still pouring out my heart
but there aint no body listening but this broken down guitar
aint that the truth

i say if i had a nickel for every broken heart of mine
well im sure that id be rich by the time i was 25
but that aint no kind of way to go along and live your life
but still i do

cuz it seems like only yesterday, i still believed in love
and i give that women everything and she just gave it up
now ive seen enough to know that i wont ever be enough for anyone

so as i sit here in the alley, with my last bottle of beer
and i sing you one last song that you aint never gonna hear
well i just wish this love was real, god damn wish this life was fair
just for once

just want to go where i wont ever be lonely
and i wanna drive til that old highway ends
and i wanna live where that bottles never empty
and you dont know my name

just want to go where i wont ever be lonely
and i wanna wake up where id never see your face
and i wanna live where that bottles never empty
and you dont know my name

you dont know my name

(REPEAT CHORUS)
Track Name: Angel That You Are
ANGEL THAT YOU ARE

Now there aint no mistaking, youre an angel in the making
but you do your very best to break the mold
ever since you were a child, well you were always running wild
never seem to do what you were told

and now id knew that you'd be dangerous, but those gorgeous eyes and those perfect lips
just one look and any man was yours
and all the boys chase you around, staring at the little sounds
your beautiful but you already know
i said your beautiful but you already know

now on the night that you met me, i was heart-broke drinking whiskey
singing songs about a girl that i once knew
well you looked like Marilyn Monroe, with you sexy rockabilly clothes
it felt just like a dream was coming true
well you kept looking at me sweet, trying not to get too close to me
like you could tell what i was going through
well it didnt seem to take you long til you picked up this old guitar
and i was trying not to fall in love with you
girl i was trying not to fall in love with you

cuz here we are, and i was on the run
never know just what youve got until its gone
well if i ever hold you again, then ill be holding on

Swear if the road, keeps us apart
well i just hope you keep a close watch on your heart
cuz there aint no one to treat you right, like the angel that you are
yea like the angel that you are

yea the last time that i saw you, you were only passing through
i knew it wouldnt be too long til you were gone
and you came into my life and then you make me fall in love again
price i pay for leaving you alone
well i just wasnt ready then, for a gorgeous girl to want anything from me, i never meant to do you wrong
now i know it aint my place, to ask you for another chance
but at least i do is leave you with a song

cuz here we are, and i was on the run
never know just what youve got until its gone
well if i ever hold you again, then ill be holding on

Swear if the road, keeps us apart
well i just hope you keep a close watch on your heart
cuz there aint no one to treat you right, like the angel that you are
yea like the angel that you are

Track Name: Harsh Conditions
HARSH CONDITIONS

Well im tired of myself and im tired of this house
blood stains on the carpets, broke bottles on the ground
well im tired of my memories, that always give me hell
another women in my bedroom just a story that shell tell

well i dont even have a reason to drag myself along
its another shot of whiskey and a lonely traveling song
baby dont you miss me when you wake up and im gone
cuz im a rambling kind of animal with no place left to run, no place to run
no place to run

cuz harsh condition im living in
let me tell you about it son

well im tired of myself and ive been tired of this town
think ill pack my bags and ill turn it right around
well im getting on a train trying to find my first love again
i, i know her name but i dont know hows shes been

these days keep going by and i have nothing to rely on
but this money in my pocket and these shoes that i tie
i walk a dead end street, and im falling through the cracks
as it caves in under me, i end up right where i began
where i began
where i began

harsh conditon im living in
but i dont think youd understand

well i, aint got no time for letting go
whoah whoah whoah
she said she love you but she dont
no no no
gamble it all and go for broke
whoah whoah whoah
that shotgun girl in the centerfold

well the day im feeling lonely the day im giving up
sitting around this empty house just talking to your ghost
so im tying up my boots and im headed down the road
well i dont know where im going but ill be sure to let you know

these days are getting lonesome these days are getting rough
ive been singing all these songs of times i thought i was in love
well i dont know why im singing when im down to my last breath
cuz she dont want no romance from a vagrant like myself
vagrant like myself

cuz harsh condition im living in
might be heaven might be hell

well i, aint got no time for letting go
whoah whoah whoah
she said she love you but she dont
no no no
gamble it all and go for broke
whoah whoah whoah
that shotgun girl in the centerfold


aint got no time for letting go
she said she love you but she dont
gamble it all and go for broke
that shotgun girl in the centerfold

( REPEAT)
Track Name: Blood Red
BLOOD RED

Been up and down that wounded rock
Got a 45 stuck to my pocket
now im wearing out my worn out jacket
got my thumb out but the cars keep passing

got a little cash and a pack of smokes
got my lovers heart wrapped around my throat
another 100 miles til i get home
got get back before my blood runs cold

Blood Red (x3)


Been up and down that damn west coast
Searching for that holy ghost
have nothing to do, no where to go
you know ive got no place to rest my soul

got me feeling like a bag of bones
and i can take your sticks, i can take your stones
you know there better be a silver bullet in your gun
boy ya cant kill whats already long long long gone

Blood Red (3x)


Ya know ive been down but aint gving up
gotta rabbits foot for lady luck
you know i gotta get moving or i might get stuck
cuz im a gambling man and i gamble on love

sweet love

Track Name: Fast Hand Jack
FAST HAND JACK

Fast Hand Jack was a gambling man
On the Mississippi Queen going to New Orleans
he an eye for counting cards, sticky fingers to match
he used to hide his 45 wipe under his hat

He learned to deal from the devil with a deck of trick cards
made a living taking money from the hustlers and sharks
and got a little too good at the luck of the draw
fast hand jack was a man who didnt know when to stop

Fast hand Jack (3x)

He used to win theyd say fast hand he done it again
playing cards with you aint really playing a game
now could you borrow me the money, to get back home
Well if you need it so bad then wha'd you spend it for?
anytime

Now fast hand jack was born in 1912,
they say his mother was an angel and his fathers from hell
but one things for sure they had the magic touch
fast hand jack was a man who didnt run out of luck

and one day the devil come to fast hands door
trying to collect the debt that fast hand owed
he said devil please you know i aint got the cash
fast hand lets see if you will ever win again

Fast Hand Jack (3x)

He used to win theyd say fast hand he done it again
playing cards with you aint really playing a game
now could you borrow me the money, to get back home
Well if you need it so bad then wha'd ya spend it for?
anytime

Now its fast hand jack on the gamblin boat
game of Texas Hold Em' with a bunch of cut throats
One time in his life that he just couldnt win
you know he couldnt pay up so they took his left hand

now its one hand jack sitting on his front porch
Shuffles with his thumb so he dont gamble no more
Well one things for sure you cant always win
when you deal with the devil you come back again
anytime

Fast Hand Jack (3x)

Track Name: Whiskey
WHISKEY

wonder where the time goes til i see you again
cuz i dont know where im going, and i dont know who i am

getting on a train who knows where no body knows
cuz i need no time for loving, when i dont love myself

hey ive been drinking whiskey, you can smell it on my breath
wonder when the time will come til i see you again
cuz im getting on a train to go right back where i came from

i dont want to leave
but i know she dont want me

Track Name: Where Have You Been
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

well i step outside in the cold blue light
wondering if youre doing alright
miles away from where i stand
wondering when you be back again

cuz i cant stand us being apart
run away with my broken heart
i hear your voice like a midnight train
wondering when you'll be back again

where have you been?
where have you been?
where have you been?
where have you been?

well i wake up in my empty bed
thoughts of you running through my head
saw you in my window pane
wondering when you be back again

another great big empty day
trying to drink my blues away
another night, kentucky straight
wondering when you be back again


where have you been?
where have you been?
where have you been?
where have you been?

petty darling
where have you been?

so i step outside in the morning light
wondering if youre doing alright
miles away from where i stand
wondering when you be back again

run away with my broken heart
hear your voice like a midnight train
wondering when you be back again

where have you been?
where have you been?
where have you been?
where have you been?

well pretty darling
pretty darling
pretty darling
where have you been?

Track Name: Old Empty Bottle
OLD EMPTY BOTTLE

well you broke my heart and lost my head
went to sleep and then i woke up dead
feeling like a ghost on that old highway
since i lost that women been walking for days

now i dont know if ill ever love again
cant place a bet when your moneys spent
sometimes it takes a bottle to put me to sleep
gonna take a lot more to drink you away

with that that old empty bottle
got me thinking about the one i used to love
i know shes never coming home
its hard to swallow
feel like a man without a purpose
drag my feet along that long dark dusty road
leading to nowhere
gave you my heart so you could break it
now im nothing but a bag of skin and bones
cold and hollow
heres to another couple years washed down the drain
heres to that old empty bottle

Thought heaven was a girl with that long dark hair
with them hazel eyes and that skin so fair
and i give that women all my heart
but your giving too much tear you apart

so i lost all that i had to loose
took the last of my love and i put it on you
and you threw it away like i wasnt enough
now its just me and a long dark walk

with that that old empty bottle
got me thinking about the one i used to love
i know shes never coming home
its hard to swallow
feel like a man without a purpose
drag my feet along that long dark dusty road
leading to nowhere
gave you my heart so you could break it
now im nothing but a bag of skin and bones
cold and hollow
heres to another couple years washed down the drain
heres to that old empty bottle
