Frozen 03:38
Frozen I ran my luck and I ran my name Through the worst parts of this town Now I've got no bread, I've got no place to stay And no one wants me around It's kinda quiet here, the highways out there The river runs and there's a never ending hum For still and silence I'll stomp out into the woods But I love the sound of those big trucks I close my eyes and accelerate and crank the wheel to the south But the truth is harsh, I accept my fate There's just no getting out The only hope the winter brings is the coming of the spring And that's the time a rambler runs If he ain't frozen The only hope the winter brings is the coming of the spring And that's the time a rambler runs If he ain't frozen

CREEPY SHAKES Those people who you meet that start talking straight away about their latest court case saying they got screwed by the D.A. and that old judge didn't like their face Usually those stories start out with them saying - they were all fucked up And when the coppers searched the car They found a bunch of drugs WHY YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE I RELATE THESE KINDS OF PEOPLE GIVE ME THE CREEPY SHAKES Those rednecks who tell you about this gun they've got that can put a hole through a bear They always gotta make me feel the weight of the rifle, I say Wow but I don't care I don't care if you shoot a million bullets in the trees - just don't kill nobody You’ve got the right to bare arms but don't act like a nut and threaten World War three WHY YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE I RELATE THESE KINDS OF PEOPLE GIVE ME THE CREEPY SHAKES Now this chick here is somebody’s wife but she’s acting like it don’t matter I get around but I ain't into putting people down despite love for me being pretty shattered So baby this is real real bad news - getting this close to my face All you're doing is making mistakes that I'm gonna end up having to explain . WHY YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE I RELATE THESE KINDS OF PEOPLE GIVE ME THE CREEPY SHAKES

Both So Dark 04:56
BOTH SO DARK I was friends with the other kind of artist The kind that’s real well fed Sleep all the time and only work when she wanna Only worries were the one’s that she made up in her head TWO KINDS TWO KINDS OF ART TWO WORLDS BUT THEY BOTH SO DARK Just another night, she was at the bar He was on the microphone strumming his guitar It had been a while, he said it’s good to see ya She said she really dug his cover of Carmelita TWO KINDS TWO KINDS OF ART TWO WORLDS BUT THEY BOTH SO DARK They hung out a while and had a little thing They’d go driving around and they’d hit the town and they’d go snowshoeing Then came the day it became all about Woman and Man Some words were spoke and the fires were stoked And they never rode around again TWO KINDS TWO KINDS OF ART TWO WORLDS BUT THEY BOTH SO DARK

WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL Rippin’ E Brakes and hammerin’ up a logging trail Drinking cold Budweiser riding shotgun with my buddy Neil OH WELL IT WAS A WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL I remember those days, it’s tough when you’re 22 It was a time of war and I was confused OH WELL IT WAS A WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL I liked this chick but my buddy bought her fare and square He buys her cigarettes and she smokes a high-class brand OH WELL IT WAS A WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL I was a little kid looking up at him thinking he’d never break Then those rocks slide, they came tumbling down and he lost his face When the Old Man fell it really shook this place Who knows what’s going to go down in this heat The crazy summer air is waving on the black concrete OH WELL IT WAS A WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL My Uncle Hank died before they lifted the curse If there’s a radio in Hell then I’m sure he heard OH WELL IT WAS A WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL
