Track Name: I've Lost My Little Girl
I can hold you
In my mind
And I'm gonna hold you 'til my
Dyin' time

If I could on
Judgment day
It's next to you girl that
I would lay

But I've Lost My
Little Girl

Hear me singin' til the
Midnight comes
Shake your hips in the
Mornin' sun

Keep your legs girl
Til I come
It's next to you that I was
Born to run

But I've Lost My
Little Girl

I can hold you
In my mind
And I'm gonna hold you til my
Dyin' time

But I've Lost My
Little Girl
Track Name: The Ballad of John Healey
John Healey was a desperate little man
He carried his gun everyday
He shot a man when he looked him in the eye
He shot him and he shot him dead
Shot him and he shot him dead

See John Healey start a runnin'
Made it 'bout twenty miles away
Up stepped a man, took him by the arm
Sayin' Johnny come and go with me,
Johnny come and go with me

So he sent for his darlin' mother to come
Sent for her to come and pay his bail
But there ain't no bail for a murderin' man
They threw John Healey in jail
They threw John Healey in jail

They hung him by his head
With tears a rollin' down his cheeks
There ain't no care for a murderin' man
His mother couldn't help but weep
His mother couldn't help but weep

Now all you people take a warnin'
From this here song and learn
There's a Johnny in me, and a Johnny in you
I didn't feel glad to watch him hang
I didn't feel glad to watch him hang
Track Name: Storm's Comin' Mama
Woke up last night I heard the thunder crack
Well the rain's pourin' down round the old blues shack
Well the shack could flood but I'll take the chance
I wanna stick around for one last dance

Storm's Comin' Mama
Storm's Comin' Babe

Well the lightnin' struck at the top of the hill
And the fire spread so I say well well
Well the hurricane's hear so the people leave
But I hope to God that the storm starts easin'

Storm's Comin' Mama
Storm's Comin' Babe

Well the fire went out and the shack is freezin'
But I keep my girl sittin' next to me
Well the roof has fallen but I don't mind
I just wanna love you girl tonight

Storm's Comin' Mama
Storm's Comin' Babe
Track Name: Mama Don't Cry
I've heard the wisdom of Cadillacs
The way they fly down my mama's flat
I could build my dynasty too
I just wanna make love to you

The finance of imagery is much too sweet
My lover's skin lord, it makes me weep
This lonesome boy feels so alone
I just wanna make love to you

Mama Don't Cry now
It's only so long til we all got to die anyhow

Abraham he's thinkin leave it all behind
Prophets of old they were never too kind
I could start my religion too
I just wanna make love to you

In the Sabines I hear whisper's too
Of a Roman Cavalcade in future paperbacks for you
I could end my empire too
I just wanna make love to you

Mama Don't Cry now
It's only so long til we all got to die anyhow

Well Jesus said bread falls so far
He fed a million on his way to Caesar
I could end that revolution too
I just wanna make love to you

Mama Don't Cry now
It's only so long til we all got to die anyhow
Track Name: Rattlesnake Blues
Mother, I adore you
Father, I'm gettin' old
Darlin' I cant hear your words
But I hear that rattlesnake moan

Darlin' I hardly knew you
But by the strength of your skin
You said farewell to my achin' heart
Your gonna hear my rattlesnake sing

Hey hey hey, I'm a rattlesnake babe
Well well well, won't you rattle me?

Rider, oh rider
I hope to be leavin' soon
How I wish that I could ride the blinds
That my rattlesnake holds on to

Stranger, oh stranger
How did I become like you
Every time I see that mirror girl
Well I see my rattlesnake too

Hey hey hey, I'm a rattlesnake babe
Well well well, won't you rattle me

Mother, I love you
Father, I'm doin' well
Darlin' I cant hear your words
Livin' in my rattlesnake hell
Track Name: Cocaine Blues
Yonder come my baby all dressed in red
Tell you ma'am I was better off dead
Cocaine's runnin' round my brain

Yonder come my girl all dressed in blue
Tell you woman there's nothin' I can do
Cocaine's runnin' round my brain

Hey babe won't you come here quick
This old cocaine's makin' me sick
Cocaine's runnin' round my brain

Yonder come my girl all over that hill
Tell you man she's livin' there still
Cocaine's runnin' round my brain

Every time my babe and me, we go to town
Lord they come and they shoot us down
Cocaine's runnin' round my brain

Hey babe won't you come here quick
This old cocaine's makin' me sick
Cocaine's runnin' round my brain

Yonder come my girl all dressed in red
Tell you ma'am I was better off dead
Cocaine's runnin' round my brain

Yonder come my girl all dressed in white
Told you woman you could stay all night
Cocaine's runnin' round my brain

Hey babe won't you come here quick
This old cocaine's makin' me sick
Cocaine's runnin' round my brain
