Track Name: Down The River Blues
I'm Goin' Down to the river,
To see if I can be baptised,
I'm goin down to the river girl,
To see my body rise

So Give me whiskey, when I'm thirsty
Religion, when I'm dry
Long legs when I'm lonely
And morphine so I can die

Tell you there ain't no heaven
There ain't no burnin' hell
Where you go when it ends little girl
Can't nobody tell

So Give me whiskey, when I'm thirsty
Religion, when I'm dry
Long legs when I'm lonely
And morphine so I can die

I'm Goin' down to the river
To see if I can drown
I'm Goin' down to the river girl
My body won't be found
Track Name: Wear A White Dress
Cover me in roses babe
Cover me in spades
Every kind of love that you could
Give me I would take
I need your kind of lovin'
Girl you set me free

Just make sure when you call me
You wear a white dress girl

Cover me in perfume girl
I need you all the time
Every kind of poem you could
Sing me I would write
Can't you hear my lonesome voice
Girl you drive me wild

Just make sure when you call me
You wear a white dress girl

Shake me baby, I'll be your rattlesnake man
Shake me baby, be my rattlesnake girl

Just make sure when you call me
You wear a white dress girl
Track Name: Angels Call my Name
Here she comes
The midnight train
When I'm lyin' in bed
In honest pain
Thought I heard,
Thought I heard,
Thought I heard a whistle blow

There's no way I
Can tranquilize
My achin' mind
I don't mind dyin'
Thought I may
Thought I may
Thought I may kiss you ma'am

Well, yeah
Angels call
Angels call
Angels call my name

Woman I
Can hear you now
Your pretty eyes
Your soft howl
Thought I may
Thought I may
Thought I may be your man

Morning dew
Is a lot to ask
Of a pretty face
Awake at dawn
Thought I may
Thought I may
Thought I may be your love

Well, yeah
Angels call
Angels call
Angels call my name
Track Name: Snake Eyed Woman
She's an evil woman
Gonna cause you pain
When you're all alone
She will slander your name

Snake eyed woman
Yes, I'm her man
When you're all alone you will
Scream her name

She's an evil woman
Evil work of art
If you're not careful
She will tear heart apart

Snake eyed woman
Yes I'm her man
When you're all alone you will
Scream her name

She's an evil woman
Red headed bombshell
If you're not careful she will
Drag you through hell

Snake eyed woman
Yes I'm her man
When you're all alone you will
Scream her name

Snake eyes, Snake eyes
Track Name: Pretty Polly
Oh come around girl
Pretty Polly will sing a song
Said some around girl
Pretty Polly will sing a song
About a South American nation
In 1954

Guatemala's born a new
In the last ten years
Guatemala's born a new
In the last ten years
The common man his own master
No longer in fear

Pretty Polly will sing a lonesome song
Pretty Polly will sing no one will listen at all

Slave labour's cut
For the last ten years
Slave labour's cut
For the last ten years
US profits
Have been fallin' every year

Lobby man to the CIA says
Don't you owe me one
Lobby man to the CIA says
Don't you owe me too?
Overthrow their president in a military coup

Pretty Polly will sing a lonesome song
Pretty Polly will sing no one will listen at all

The General says to his president
I will drink your blood like wine
The General says to his president
I will drink your blood like wine
Twenty thousand people
Will be on borrowed time

In the streets you hear dogs bark
They got somethin' on their minds
In the streets you hear dogs bark
They got somethin' on their minds
But the men sit still they cannot go out of line

Pretty Polly will sing a lonesome song
Pretty Polly will sing no one will listen at all

Democracy's a failin'
And I wish somebody cared
Democracy's a failin'
And I wish somebody cared
Propaganda drives that money
And corruption takes her there

Capitol Hill not a word
The boys in blue never weep
Capitol Hill not a word
The boys in blue never weep
They've swallowed the lies
On their tongues that help them sleep
Communism they said was the only evil here
Track Name: The Woman I love
The Woman I love
Has long wavy hair
She drives me wild
She's a faithless affair

The Woman I love
Is a force untold
She's a gust of wind
Drives straight through my soul

She don't love me any more

The Woman I love
She don't hear me speak
I don't get no lovin'
And I'm restless for weeks

The Woman I love
Is a glass of wine
She got red rosey cheeks
They come straight off the vine

She don't love me any more

The Woman I love,
The Woman I love
