Track Name: Interstate Shakedown
Won’t you tell me now pretty thing
What’s the big hurry?
She gonna head home
Get her bags packed
She gonna fill up the trunk
Of that old Cadillac
Like a blur to the onramp
I-10 East to Alabam
She close her eyes
Over all the noise
She could hear the sound
Of that woman’s voice
When she picked up the telephone
Said, “Girl, you’re man ain’t home
Could I give him a message
If he come round?”
Well I’m afraid not darlin
You’ll be sleeping in the ground
She leaving town
Gone to shoot him down
She roll into Mobile
As the sun set up on the hill
She got a blade sharp
And a gun cocked
She got a hot hand
On the cold lock
Knock, knock at the back door
A voice cries out, “Who’s there?”
Then an eye pressed
To the peephole
She hold the steel straight
And give a quick pull
CHORUS
CHORUS
Track Name: Young Man
When I was a young man
My mother told me,
“You find yourself a nice girl
Or you end up lonely”
I always thought
She was telling lies
Until I seen
Those electric eyes
Now I’m changing up my story
When I was a young man
My father said, “Alright, son
You find yourself a nice girl
Gonna love you every night, son”
That old line
Was wearing thin
Until I seen
That champagne skin
Now I know that he’s the right one
When I was a young man
My mother told me,
“You find yourself a nice girl
Or you end up lonely”
I always thought
She was telling lies
Until I seen
Those electric eyes
Now I’m changing up my story
Track Name: One More Chance
You been mine
Such a long time
I know I said some things
That was on my mind
And I done you wrong
But let me do you right
So I’m down on my knees
When I sing tonight
Baby, yeah
Won’t give me one more chance
You know I could prove to you
I could be your man
All them tears you cried
Now they were in the past
Time tries to let em fade
You seem to make em last
Darlin, dry your eyes
And put your hands in mine
You know that I’d give a year
For just one more day by your side
CHORUS
You been hurt so bad, baby
You ain’t gon let that happen to ya no more
But you wouldn’t believe the look you see
Up on my face, sweet darlin
If you was to walk back through my door
If I had one more chance baby
One more just to make it right
I’d stand by you every day
Lay by you every night
But you gone now girl
Yeah, I think you gone for good
But come back by anytime
You know that I wish you would
CHORUS
Track Name: 100 Nights
Oh, my head is low
She steady backing out the bedroom door
My eyes move instead
Cross the back of my head
As photos crash into the floor
Maybe she need some time to cool down
But wonder if she coming home
I done it again, opened my mouth when
I probably should have kept it closed
Now baby, let me help you
Tell me what did I do
Or what to tell you
When you run and hide
You wearing all your feelings
I know you don’t mean it
When you kick and scream
And tell me that you leaving
But I’ll wait
100 nights for you
Oh, I’m at the door
She steady backing out the driveway
My mouth open wide,
“Baby don’t leave!” I cry
Hopin that it ain’t too late
Maybe she see soon what we got here
But wonder if she had enough
I done it again, causing her pain when
I only meant to show her love
CHORUS
Oh, I’m all alone
Feel like I waited 99 nights
A sound at the front door
I hold my breath and hope
She waiting on the other side
Maybe I’m dreaming that she come home
But wonder if it can’t be true
I turn the knob and an empty doormat
Well, give it just another night or two
CHORUS
Track Name: Old Stone
Listen up child
I’ma tell you about old stone
He leave a trail of tears
With all the women he known
You think he’d settle down
He gonna be with you
But if you see Old Stone
He gonna be leaving soon
Old Stone gonna roll
Old Stone gonna roll
Old Stone gonna roll while he can
Gone by the weekend
Living like a free man
Old Stone gonna roll
Listen up boy
I’ma tell you about this man
He done rattled through town
About six years past
Took a liking to
Your momma, son
And then he rattled on
Just as soon as he was done
CHORUS
CHORUS
Track Name: Next To Me
If you want a little bit of lovin
You gotta get next to me
You want some tender kissin and huggin
You gotta get next to me
I’ll be the one
Steady by your side
I’ll be the one
Gonna hold you tight
Keepin you warm at night
If you want the touch of a man
You gotta get next to me
I’ma keep you warm when the furnace can’t
But you gotta get next to me
CHORUS
If you want a little bit of lovin
You gotta get next to me
You want some tender kissin and huggin
You gotta get next to me
CHORUS
Track Name: Break A Dawn
Could you tell me something, mister
You seen this young woman
or the man with her?
Now they was last seen rollin two deep
With their taillights burnin your street
Wanting nothing else,
Nothing else, nothing else
But they own company
And maybe just a few bills,
Oh, a few bills
So they could buy a little peace
Oh, the chances looking alright, alright
They ain’t coming back tonight, tonight
Gonna try to catch em
Come the break a dawn, c’mon
Now by that time
They’ll be long gone, long gone
Could you take a minute, guy?
Can I have a quick look around inside?
I think they might be holed up in your house
But a gunshot could talk them out
If you play it right, play it right, play it right
You make it out alive
But they said their goodbyes
Oh, they said their goodbyes
When they left last night
CHORUS
With their eyes wet and dangerous
Like they been staring into the sun
They got their hands held to the sky
Ain’t gonna put em down for anyone
We got a chance, they said
We got a chance, they said
Ain’t gonna give it up
For any other man, they said
Ain’t gonna give it up
For any other man, they said
Ain’t gonna give it up
For any other man, no we can’t
CHORUS
Track Name: Not Into You
Oh, he not into you
No matter what you do
So darlin, don’t you take your paycheck
Spend it on some shoes and a new dress
Don’t bring him around
And talk him up
When he gonna put you down
Girl, he not into you
You lookin so fresh
Got them credit cards so stressed
Put together so correct
Still he talkin so indirect
CHORUS
He not into you
No matter what you do
So darlin, don’t you take your paycheck
And spend it on shoes and a new dress
CHORUS
Track Name: Without You
Baby, I’m doomed
I can’t take it no more
When I made my way home
Pictures down on the floor
I’m breakin apart
I’m comin unglued
And I ain’t coming home
This ain’t no home without you
Oh, where did I go wrong?
Oh, where did I go wrong?
Yeah, how could I go on
Without you?
Now I told you I was wrong
And I can’t stand the sight
Boxes stacked by the door
Bring tears to my eyes
Well, I’m down on my knees
Baby, please won’t you stay?
Cause I just can’t go on
I can’t go on without you girl
Not one more day
CHORUS
Baby, I’m doomed
I can’t take it no more
When I made my way home
Pictures down on the floor
CHORUS
Track Name: You Better Run
Well you know, she sound
Just like a train
When she open up her mouth
Leave a man in pain
And you know that she move
Just like the wind
When she whippin him around
And round and round again
Boy, you never gonna win
You better run
You better run
Well you know, she act
Just like a child
Soon as he turn his back
She off runnin wild
And you know that she gone
Days at a time
And come back alone
With tears in her eyes
Boy, you better recognize
CHORUS
Now, if she come around
Don’t you look her down, no
I said, if she come around
Don’t you look her down, no
I said, If she come around
Don’t you look her down
You get on the ground, boy
Get out of town now
If she come around
Don’t you look her down, no
Well you know, she wait
She wait for him out back
And hit him when he make
His way for a cigarette
Then you know that she drive
With the boy bound up in twine
Gone to put him down outside,
Outside the county line
Boy, you run out of time
CHORUS
Track Name: Black On Black
Tucked in the corner
Clutching a seven
Two more done up to the nines
Cleaning their bones
Before eleven
Eating their praises
And biding her time
Oh no, I can’t overlook the fact
She wearing black on black
Grandmother’s footsteps
Across the dance floor
She see the whites of his eyes
She take her time
She sink her teeth in
But leave the poor man where he lies
Paralyzed
CHORUS
She wearing black
Oh no, she wearing black
Tucked in the corner
Clutching a seven
Two more done up to the nines
Track Name: Wrong One
I think you telling lies
You got the look of the devil
All up in your eyes
And I don’t care if it’s the truth
Cause when you twist it up off your lips
It’s so cute
Girl, you keep me running now
You know I followed your every word
From the first sound
She was the wrong one
At just the right time
Yeah, and it’s alright
It’s alright, babe
She had them good looks
To match them good lies
Yeah, and it’s alright
It’s alright, babe
You looking so fine
You got the face of an angel
Boy, what a disguise
And I don’t care what’s underneath
Cause when you twist it up off your hips
It’s so sweet
Girl, you keep me coming now
You know I followed you to heaven
Now I’m underground
CHORUS
It’s alright
CHORUS
Track Name: Sepia Tones
In the golden days
Of Marion
I’m told it was a sight
To behold
Them carry on
Well into the night
Oh, that was some,
Some time ago
Before the skies opened wide
And the rainfall
Down on the patio
Drove them all inside
I’ll telling you no
I haven’t ever known
Just how to get to know a man
In sepia tones
In the golden days
Of Dixieland
I’m told it was a sound
To behold
My old man
Marchin through the town
Oh, the common thread
My daddy said
It’s like lookin in the past
But too little left
To weave a man
From them old photographs
CHORUS
CHORUS
Track Name: Never Alone
Movin on down
The long, lonesome road
The sun at her back
Disappears with everyone she knows
Tell me pretty girl
You ever gonna find a home?
She never meant to be alone
But her fate is the same old mistake
She never meant to be alone
But she is anyway
Ruined again
What you gonna do next time?
Stick by his side
Stead of moving on down the line?
CHORUS
Broken on down
Dirty hands dry your eyes
Push it on East
Til the suns breaks into the sky
CHORUS
