Call me a sinner, then cast your stone But it was whisky and women, that broke up my home And I don’t have another, to call my own Gonna get my guitar, go on down the road Goin' down the road……..going down the road….. I got a woman, and she loves me so She keeps me easy, goes down slow So all you women, settin’ out that line wanna tell you a story, everything's just fine everything's just fine…….everything's just fine….. Got no religion, leading me blind I only listen, to my second mind I can tell the difference, between left and right Tell you a story, everything's all right everything's alright……….everything's alright
Shotgun 03:42
I lost my woman, to a travellin' man Who took his pleasure, In the back of his van He was no rocker, no superstar Just a long distance Truck driver Truck driver Don’t know what happened, or how it all started But she just bundled up, left and departed She was out gallivanting, and having her fun I drank whiskey And thought about guns I thought about guns Gonna get me a shotgun I know a man who’s got one Gonna get me a shotgun I know a man who’s got one If I had (a) wrote a letter, told her mama take her home Can you please come and get her, yeah there’s something wrong with her Can’t keep her in the house, can’t leave her in the road If I had a wrote a letter A different tale be told Different tale be told Gonna get me a shotgun I know a man who’s got one Gonna get me a shotgun I know a man who’s got one
Sweet Thing 03:45
Sweet thing, I wanna hold you all night Sweet thing, you surely looking just fine Sweet thing, I wanna hold you near Sweet thing, come on right over here Sweet thing, I want to hold your hand Sweet thing, I’ll be your loving man Sweet thing, I need your loving so bad Sweet thing, I the best I ever had Sweet thing, surely driving me wild Sweet thing, slowly outta my mind Sweet thing, just like a hurricane Sweet thing, here we go again
Pity the fool, who falls in love for the first time Pity the fool, who falls in love for the first time Cos you know that woman, surely make you lose your precious mind Sometimes it makes me wonder How a man can be so blind With just a wink and a whisper A woman can turn his eye pity the fool………... She’ll come home in the morning with them skinny blue jeans And the smell of a hoochie coochie man Stuck between her knees pity the fool………... First she'll break your spirit Then she take your soul And then all of a sudden You aint welcome in your home Well I know I should've listened to My second mind when he tried to tell me Hobo Leave this one behind Well you can't trust no woman If the woman don't trust you She tell you you're a liar When you don't even know the truth Pity the fool..........
Hobo's Blue 04:34
Let me tell you what’s on my mind How can a woman be so un-kind Take a man’s lovin every day Then you go and throw it all away It makes me wonder, What did I do To end up, with a girl like you You gimme the blues, you gimme the blues, you do Got a message from my baby child Broke my heart and it made me cry Mama said you just wanna play your guitar You never wanted to be my Pa It makes me wonder Hope you know that when you die And look your maker in the eye And all your lies become untold Lord have mercy upon your soul. It makes me wonder, What did I do? To wind up, with a woman like you You gimme the blues, you gimme the blues, you do
Got No Money 03:12
Hey pretty lady, standing at the corner of my street Finest thing a poor boy could ever meet Shure would be delighted to take you home with me But i know you won’t do it for free Got no money, I want love Got no money, I want love Got no money, I want love Got no money, Lord above ‘Member that time when I asked you for a dance, I thought I'd try a little old fashioned romance You said gimme twenty dollars and you got half a chance I said No honey…….you don’t understand
Vodka Slut 03:09
Ever since I quit drinkin, I can't talk to no woman at all (x2) And they call it Dutch courage, but I don’t speak Dutch no more Ever since I quit gambling, I can't look no woman in the eye (x2) And I could never back a winner, And I hate to see my baby cry. I used to dance with whiskey Until vodka changed the rules Left me on the killing floor Feeling like a fool So I changed my way of livin And vodka I aint missing you Well sometimes I miss you whiskey And the way you made me feel But vodka I don’t miss you, Cos you’re a slut you see You’re a mean mistreater And you mistreated me Since I started smokin' reefer, it all become quite clear (x2) But I'd rather have the reefer, than drink that no good stinky beer
My baby calls me lazy, Says I spend all day scratching round (x2) But when I wake up at the crack of noon, I just wanna hear my guitar sound My baby calls me misery, And sometimes I admit to feeling low (x2) But when I get these blues honey, Just wanna hear harmonica blow Now my baby says I’m tetchy She says I’m always in a stew If you give my back a scratchy I’ll make sweet love to you
Go to church on a Sunday, If Sunday falls on Christmas day Axe the lord to forgive, Take account of all my sins When it comes to judgement day, At the pearly gates you know peter might say Why did you live your life that way, How come you were so led astray Oh Peter please let me in I don’t want to go home For the devil is bound to get me One by one and two by three four five six seven Only fools go to heaven And when all is said and done Did you put me here for a reason Is there a job to do that hasn’t been done Or a song to sing that hasn’t been sung When the day does finally come Will I be scared, will I run Do I face salvation Or eternal damnation
