The Flood (free) 04:07
I got a girl, man she lives up town She’s all right Has my child and she knows much better then to tell my wife She got a way of wearing her skirt High up above her knee I may be by the river Or working on the house She’s looking for me Yes, you know she’s looking for… I went down to the power station After my lights when out There was a man there sleeping on the steps Wondering what I’d come to see about I asked him anybody been walking through the doors Turning the lights back on He said: “It’s kinda hard to fix A problem sometimes When nobody says that it’s wrong” They don’t say that it’s… It takes more than money to buy salvation When you’re shopping at the devil’s store I seen enough of this drowning and moaning Don’t want anymore How long we gonna be hold up here Waiting for the end to come Hard to imagine anybody coming any time soon When you’re nowhere and nothing and no one Nobody baby

Billy, get off that cocaine It’s holding you back And you know that shit’ll kill you It’s a fact Sally, slow down your mustang You’re driving 99 You can run the red lights all down main street, baby But you can’t slow time Too cool for love Too cool for love Too cool to ever get enough Too cool For love Anybody with a window Can decide when it’s time to fly You still got some walking left, baby? Hey, so do I Anybody with the muscle Can get their love for free But that won’t buy you compassion From me Too cool for love Too cool for love Too cool to ever get enough Too cool For love Too cool for love Too cool for love Too cool to ever get enough Too cool For love

Louisville to Austin Don’t you know that’s a mighty long ride When I reach Texarkana All you playboys step aside It’s not that I want blood Maybe a little that’s only natural And besides you’re only flattering yourselves I’m taking my bride And we’re gonna have a baby In Tennessee… Maybe In Tennessee… Maybe If nervous is a bottle Pour it out and drink it down And I’ll be seeing double By the time I reach the town It’s not that I’m afraid Though I haven’t seen her in such a long time But is it me who she wants or just protection And will she Still let me call her baby In Tennessee… Maybe In Tennessee… Maybe

Samson 04:55
Standing outside the gates of heaven Waiting there years they won’t unlock this door They won’t let me in They won’t let me in I’m headed back downtown To find me that road to sin Everyone said I had the light of the gods Shining out my eyes like dinner light But I know they was wrong I know they was wrong I don’t my waiting I’m just sorry I was good for so long If I had my way I would be like Samson I’d be fighting them lions, boys Straight on down to the ground If I had my way I would be like Samson I would tear this building down If I had my way I would be like Samson And I would give everything To ladies like Delilah downtown I would give everything To ladies like Delilah downtown I would give everything To ladies like Delilah downtown Well the Judge looked at me Said I was a cold blooded killer He could tell by the glare that I had in my eyes I never killed no man I never killed no man I just looked down one day Found a smoking gun in my hand My ass is all wet from sitting on clouds Eyes can’t see the pearly gates are so bright I never treated you unkind I never treated you unkind I never took anything from anybody, baby I was just born with a criminal mind If I had my way I would be like Samson I’d be fighting them lions, boys Straight on down to the ground If I had my way I would be like Samson I would tear this building down If I had my way I would be like Samson And I would give everything To ladies like Delilah downtown I would give everything To ladies like Delilah downtown I would give everything To ladies like Delilah downtown Come on baby you can shave my hair My strength of would be that of a natural man One of these nights around twelve O’clock This old world gonna reel and rock

Say A Prayer 05:45
If you come see me I promise To always be good and true But I know now you cannot be honest So I cannot be anything to you Now I waited on you when you were a princess Baby how could I know That any kingdom of yours would prove fruitless When you’d become queen of the ice and snow Baby say a prayer for me If you care for me Take off the dress you wear for me Stand bare for me Because we never had any reason To cover these wounds up in salt You tell me you change with the season And that’s not your fault Oh no baby So call me up in the morning Tell me you’ll be here tonight Because your coyness is almost as boring As life without death but baby not quite And then stay with me stay with me this evening An evening of 500 years Because if we could have all this loving without leaving Then we could have laughter without the tears Baby say a prayer for me If you care for me Take off the dress you wear for me Stand bare for me Because we never had any reason To cover these wounds up in salt You tell me you change with the season And that’s not your fault Oh no baby

Gets so hard for me I gotta talk about it So you understand me It takes me a long time to say what I mean But once I say it I won’t forget again Sooner or later I come across a feeling that I cannot explain That’s the way that it goes And the storm clouds descend And the rain soaks my clothes That were drying in the sun But it was futile to begin with So I can’t blame anyone And my boots are laying empty on the floor collecting dust And I won’t leave the house unless I must I won’t leave the house unless I must I won’t leave the house unless I must I won’t leave the house unless I must There’s wires strewn everywhere I can’t tell them a part I plug them in hope for the best Reluctantly press start But I get tired trying to sing it all alone I go to cook a burger Push away the microphone And my boots are laying empty on the floor collecting dust And I won’t leave the house unless I must I won’t leave the house unless I must I won’t leave the house unless I must I won’t leave the house unless I must

I thought my life had ended by 21 Mama said you know I hate To see you suffering son But I’m afraid this time It’s up to you She crossed her arms and said: “Hey boy get out of bed.” I know it’s late, but you got work to do You’ve always paid out on the front end So you’ll be better off later child From the day you was born To Your last birthday And when they cut you with the blunt end I know it hurts you all the while But the wounds not deep And in time it goes away She told me: “Son. You know. You could have left her long ago. And gone back to school Where all would have been well. “But instead you stayed and all your debts were doubly paid. And credited to your account in hell.” You’ve always paid out on the front end So you’ll be better off later child From the day you was born To Your last birthday And when they cut you with the blunt end I know it hurts you all the while But the wounds not deep And in time it goes away Well well well If you torture yourself up until the final hour When the bad news comes your disappointed anyway Ain’t no way to prepare yourself for what you don’t know So it’s best to have faith Get on your knees and pray Hey Boy You’ve always paid out on the front end So you’ll be better off later child From the day you was born To Your last birthday And when they cut you with the blunt end I know it hurts you all the while But the wounds not deep And in time it goes away No the wounds not deep And in time it goes away

Treasure (free) 05:57
Beneath the mausoleum breaths The dead and gone the ill-received They will laugh just as hard as anyone can laugh As hard as I can laugh My windows shut the door is locked The shades are drawn the initial shock Of loosing you It’s just as much as anyone can loose It’s as much as I can loose And this is this And this is the pain That I will suffer And stare at plain Oh this is this And this is the pain That I will suffer And I will feel It is my treasure to conceal That I will carry until I heal Oh this is this And this is the pain And it’s just like pleasure When it bares your name It’s just like pleasure When it bares your name It’s just like pleasure when it bares your name It’s just like pleasure when it bares your name

X-Mas Time (free) 02:59
Christmas time arriving with the midnight Baptist tents Preaching fire and hurricanes you will repent Me I work the late shift waiting for the switch to turn Wishing I could forget all of the rules I had to learn Thinking of myself standing in the new Millennium in which I’ve only loved a few Deeply and severely faithful and true But none of them I’ve loved a much as I love you Laurie Allen at the station train to Chicago No more Christmas in Tennessee where it won’t snow Alternating nights at work with drinking til I’m dumb And I feel so much smarter when I forget where I’m from Looking at myself standing in the new Millennium in which I’ve only loved a few Deeply and severely faithful and true But none of them I’ve loved a much as I love you
