Track Name: Open Till Midnite
sure as christ had twelve disciples
i’m going to lay my head down low
shake off my curses
count my blessing
before they send me down the road

sure as peter preached the gospel
made a believer out of me
you know i won’t fight for survival
but i won’t die in galilee

called himself the sun
cause the sun is strong
but the sun don’t want to let me breathe
told myself to get going
while the getting is good
but the sun don’t want to let me leave
Track Name: Dead Dog
well i heard you had a face
just like a dead dog
but i can’t believe it
i just can’t believe it

well i head they rolled you over
like you was a log
i just had to see it

i’ve got a face like a dead dog
no ones ever gonna roll me over

when i woke this morning
my sweet lips were bleeding
and my eyes were crying

well my baby’s hungry
she’s a lion
and i’m just a dead dog
i’m just a dead dog

i’m going down to the citadel
i’m going to get me my gun
and when i heard that my baby’s back
i’m going to break down and run

i’ve gotta get me some more of that
i’ve gotta have me some fun
and when i heard that my baby’s back
my face turned into a dead dog
Track Name: Things I Do
Things I Do

Iive got a diamond and she shines without a flaw
my love for her is justice
my affection is the law
i’ve got a bottle of that daniel’s in the truck
so saddle up boys

bound by possession and adherence to the cause
i’ve got a diamond
i can look past all her flaws
but i don’t like you
when the moon shines in the barn
oh my oh my oh my
the things i do
the things i do for love

no more anger in my bones
no more dirt inside my home
no more dust along the road
just my footsteps at your door
no more rolling rolling oh
the things i do
the things i do for ya
Track Name: Handsome Ol' Devil
baby don't talk so loud now
you know i'm always satisfied
the lights go down in the night time
my sights go down the line

i run outside and i start yelling things
handsome ol' devil
you never knew how to lose
you run outside to see those chemicals
handsome ol' devil
you never knew how to lose
or what to do with yourself

well didn't i always try so hard
but i can't win
you know it won't be long
before they call my name again
and i know that the lights don't go down
on the inside
i know it won't be long before the end

you can take one last good look
at your beautiful self

i run outside and i start yelling things
handsome ol' devil
you never knew how to lose
you run outside to see those chemicals
handsome ol' devil
you never knew how to lose

you are a glass of water
a cold, cold glass of water
you are a glass of water
a cold, cold glass of water

i run outside and i start yelling things
handsome ol' devil
you never knew how to lose
you run outside to see those chemicals
handsome ol' devil
you never knew how to lose
Track Name: Till Evening Come
oh lord i've been working
i've been working for a long time
oh ma we sat down in the field
and we stayed there till the next day came

oh man i've been working
for the old man in the grey and white
sat down with the sun on our backs
and we stayed there till the next day came

oh lord i've been searching
i've been searching for my whole life
sat down by the water
with the man

oh lord oh mama
i've been working
sat down in the fields
and we stayed there till the next day's train

oh lord i've been working
i've been working for a long time
oh ma we sat down in the field
and we stayed there till the next day came

oh ma oh mama
you know i've been working for a long time
sat down by the water
and we stayed there till the next day came
