Track Name: My Friend The Devil
Good friend of mine
Good friend of mine

I 240 highway go something like 95
The devil sat beside me
And I got murder on my mind
I shot that man in Vegas
Didn’t stick around to watch him die
I couldn’t see the use it wasting more of my precious time

Heaven don’t make me smile
I’ve been sitting with the best of them,
Since you’s a baby child
And all my life
The devil’s been a very good friend of mine

Good friend of mine
Good friend of mine

People always told me I was trouble as a child
Scrapes on my knees a rat’s nest in my hair and I’m running wild
My momma tried to hold me
She put locks on all the doors
But if she’d ever known me she’d have chained me to the floor

Heaven don’t make me smile
I’ve been sitting with the best of them,
Since you’s a baby child
And all my life
The devil’s been a very good friend of mine

Good friend of mine
Good friend of mine

You can’t make never make me like to see you make me go
They won’t let me never let me ever gonna let me in I know
You can’t make never make me like to see you make me go
They won’t let me never let me ever gonna let me in I know
You can’t make never make me like to see you make me go
They won’t let me never let me ever gonna let me in to

Heaven don’t make me smile
I’ve been sitting with the best of them,
Since you’s a baby child
And all my life
The devil’s been a very good friend of mine

Good friend of mine
Good friend of mine

All my life
The devil’s been a good friend of mine
Track Name: Little Red Wagon
You only love me for my thick sunglasses
And my Tony Lomas and my Dodge Dart classic
You said "I’ll be Johnny and you’d be June
And I’ll ride with you to the moon"
But guess what?!
Chorus: You can’t ride in my little red wagon
The front seat’s broken and the axle’s draggin
You can’t step to this backyard swagga
You know it aint my fault when I’m walkin jaws drop They’re like oooooo ahhhhhhhh oooooooo ahhhhhh -----
Kick it!

Ba ba ba bad ba dup dup dup da da da
Oh heaven help me I’ve been sewin wildflower seeds
And chasin tumble weeds but that’s just who I be And you’re just trying to slow this rolling stone But I’m on to ya baby

So guess what?!

(chorus)

Oooooo you only love me for my big sunglasses
And my Tony Lomas cause I’m from Oklahoma
And I got long red hair
And I play guitar
And I go on the road
And I do all the shit you want to do
And my dog does tricks
But I’m not about drama no
Cuz I love my apron
But I ain’t your mama!

(chorus)

Oooooooo ahhhhhhhh ooooooo ah!
Track Name: Annie Get Your Gun
Annie you got that shine
That money could never buy
Do you see everybody all around you noticing?

They’re comin’ from miles around
Layin’ them greenbacks down.
Just to catch a glimpse of what may be a legend

And lookin’ back on who you were
I bet you’d say to her
These things happen for a reason
And you’ve got the world in your hands
Don’t cry just realize you burn bright when you aim for the sun
Annie get your gun

Bubbles were made to burst
Fires were meant to burn
And when the flame dies down the coals will leave you warmer

And if it decides to rain
Annie on your parade
Remember summer’s always comin’ around the corner

And lookin’ back on who you were
I bet you’d say to her
These things happen for a reason
And you’ve got the world in your hands
Don’t cry just realize you burn bright when you aim for the sun
Annie get your gun
Annie get your gun

Annie grab your holster
Wear it tight
Raise your arm set your sight
Take a breath and just stay true
It’s all on you
Annie get your gun
Annie get your gun

These things happen for a reason
And you’ve got the world in your hands
Don’t cry just realize you burn bright when you aim for the sun
Annie get your gun
Annie get your gun
Annie get your gun
Track Name: I'm A Diamond
I’m a diamond
A bright shiny diamond
And I’ve come from so far away
10,000 miles

To be cut, set and sold to anyone who’d pay
Here I am on your hand
See how bright I shine
Beauty fades but I remain the picture of your life
The proof you did it right

I’m a diamond
What good is a diamond
In a world brought to its knees

And flooded with hatred
Is nothing sacred
But a stone, sharp, and cold
And still you cut me

Here I am on your hand
See how bright I shine
Beauty fades but I remain the picture of your life
The proof you did it right

Bought and sold all for a piece of cold
Bought and sold all for a piece of cold
All for a piece of cold

Here I am on your hand
See how bright I shine
Beauty fades but I remain the picture of your life
Here I am on your hand
See how bright I shine
Beauty fades but I remain the picture of your life
The picture of your life
The proof you did it right
Track Name: Smokin The Boys
I was born at the end of an old dirt road
Before I could walk I was ready to roll
When I turned 16 my brother threw me the keys
He said hey little sister better watch your speed
Now I’m smokin the boys
Smokin the boys
Taking a drag and I’mma makin some noise
Oh yeah smokin the boys
Come on

Well nothing feels better than a Friday night
A straight stick shift and my hair bleached white
Yeah momma never liked me much
While she’s holdin my hand ya’ll can eat my dust
Smokin the boys
Smokin the boys
Takin a drag and I’mma makin some noise
Smokin’ the boys c’mon

Five get the motor runnin’ baby
Four don’t let the tranny pop now
Three you gotta feel it in your figures
Two c’mon now get ready to rock
C’mon and one go go go
I got no plans for slowin’ down
Gonna see my tracks on every road in town
Yeah when I’m an old lady I’ll still be queen
Just go for a ride and you’ll see what I mean

Smokin the boys
Smokin the boys
Takin a drag and I’mma makin some noise
Smokin’ the boys c’mon

Smokin the boys
Smokin the boys
Takin a drag and I’mma makin some noise
Smokin’ the boys c’mon

Wooh yeah smokin’ the boys
Track Name: Old Italian Love Song
Wanting for me in your eyes
Night breezes making you mine
And I dare not speak
For my words are weak
And there’s just nothing that sings of true lovin’
Like old Italian love songs

Come with me I’m leading you where
Melodies color the air
And love finds a way
Or so we pray
There’s just nothing that sings of true lovin’
Like old Italian love songs
No there ain’t nothing sings of true lovin’
Like old Italian love songs

Not for all the gold in California mountains
Or the sunken treasure of the beach
Nothing you could only hold in hand amounts to you and me
Oh I could fill the seed
With tears of joy
One girl gets boy
There’s just nothin’ nothin’ no nothin’ nothin’ but nothin’
There just ain’t nothin’ no nothin’ no nothin’ no
There just ain’t nothing sings like true lovin’
Like old Italian love songs
Track Name: Ne'er Do Wells
When I was 9 years old my daddy made me see
The story of the railroad and how it came to be
He said the men who laid it down had left their own home towns
And broke their backs to give us traction.

Ne’er do wells and woe be gones
Show your face for we were wrong
Ne’er do wells and woe be gones
Feel no shame it won’t be long
Yeah

Do you ever stop to think who built those walls around you
Do you ever wonder who those people were at all
Because the hands that give you shelter
Are the very ones that you refused
And the proof of what they’re worth will long after you and I are gone

Ne’er do wells and woe be gones
Show your face for we were wrong
Ne’er do wells and woe be gones
Feel no shame it won’t be long
Yeah

I beg you listen with an open heart
You so so cruelly judged
Forgive us our trespasses
Were taught to us because
We were raised by people
Just like you and so
When the world falls down around us
It’ll be to you I go
It’ll be to you we all come runnin’

Ne’er do wells and woe be gones
Show your face for we were wrong
Ne’er do wells and woe be gones
Feel no shame it won’t be long
Track Name: Climb
Yeah, get in
Here we go.
Listen to him sing revelations are comin’
Watch him bring ‘till the end of days
But didn’t we learn way back from the blue ox and the lumberjack
Together any weather we can brave

Now we gonna climb

That old man standin’ there is naked
He shook my hand and he kissed my baby’s nose
But anyone can see he’s as crazy as can be
He lost his mind the day he found his clothes

Yeah cause we got time
So c’mon and climb
Hey!

What’s blowing you away
It’ll come your way again
Again again
So where does that lead you my friend

Wait, guide me up the mountain
C’mon love lead me on my way
And smite me down if I ever fail to be more kind than lovers
I don’t stray the path I’m born to blame

Yeah cause we got time
So c’mon and climb
Track Name: Jebidiah Moonshine's Friday Night
All right, there’s a little old house
At the top of the hill
At the end of the road
there’s a little old man with a demon to kill

Well he’s hiding with her
Yeah he’s over the blues
And he woke up this morning determined to put on his dancin’ shoes

Now he’s callin’ the world
To the top of the hill
And he’s put out the word to the boys and the girls he’s been meaning to kill

Did they stomp on your heart?
Does your job make you ill?
But you can make a new start if you follow up to the top of the hill

Jebidiah Moonshine’s Friday night shack party
shake your thing and swing what you’re bringin to the party
Non-stoppin keep on boppin ‘till we droppin everybody
Jebidiah Moonshine’s Friday night shack party

Well I came to get lost
And it’s going real well
Now I can’t find my mind or my keys can I sit on your lap first

When I come back again
And you know that I will
I’ll be bringin’ my friends for the time of their lives at the top of the hill

Jebidiah Moonshine’s Friday night shack party
shake your thing and swing what you’re bringin to the party
Non-stoppin keep on boppin ‘till we droppin everybody
Jebidiah Moonshine’s Friday night shack party

Down get down get down down get down
Attention all party scouts
Raise two fingers in the air
And repeat after me
We’re going on a party hunt
We’re gonna get a big one
We’re not scared
And that’s right we ain’t scared of nothin’
So remember when we find the party we can’t go under it
We can’t go over it
We can’t go around it
We gotta go through it

Jebidiah Moonshine’s Friday night shack party
shake your thing and swing what you’re bringin to the party
Non-stoppin keep on boppin ‘till we droppin everybody
Jebidiah Moonshine’s Friday night shack party
Track Name: Two Melodies
Some people got great big houses
And comfortable couches with room enough for two
Some people got fancy cars they’re drivin’
Do they still get the blues?
I wish I was born with papa’s silver spoon
But all I have to offer is a melody or two
And maybe I’ll sing ‘em both for you.

I only want bread and marvin
people I’m lovin’ they stick around a while
I only want a porch built for talkin’
and a chair made for rockin’
And I want that southern’ comfort style

I wish I was born with papa’s silver spoon
But all I have to offer is a melody or two
And maybe I’ll sing ‘em both for you.

I wish I was born with pappa’s silver spoon
But all I have to offer is a melody or two
And maybe I’ll sing ‘em both for you.
Yeah baby I’ll sing ‘em both for you
Oh baby I would sing them both for you.
