Track Name: Mopar Blues
Mopar Blues

When I go cruising down the highway.. Man you should see the looks I get
Couldn't make myself drive no pox 4.. They haven’t made good one yet
Nothings so fine as my sweet 69.. Nothing so mellow as my sweet 69 faded yellow

Pot belly stove black on my headers .. That 225 built on a slant
I scored a NOS 2 barrel Carter... My 69 was decadent
Nothings so fine as a sweet 69... Nothing so mellow as a sweet 69 faded yellow

My 69 was thirsty.. My pockets couldn’t cope..
Torqueflight trans was slippin .. My purple dice was so dope

One fateful day she died... On the outskirts of town
One hot day in November.. Knew I had to let her down

In a field by the Highway .. Not far from lower light
The Doc shook his head ..said she ain’t gonna make the night

Left me with a feelin .. One of sadness and deep regret
Seems them low down Mopar blues... Maybe the worst damn blues a man can get!!

Some days I get so sentimental... Bout what gets lost in changing times
Cant say I've seen nothing nothing that’s better.. Cruising a summer Haze

In a sweet 69
Track Name: Whole Mess o' Trouble
Whole mess a Trouble

I'm in a whole mess a trouble.. people I'm tellin you
I'm in a whole mess a trouble ...people I'm tellin you
My baby say she leavin... what in the world a poor boy gonna do?

I stayed up all last night... have not slept a wink today
I stayed up all last night... have not slept a wink today
My baby say she leavin.. She say's she gone away..
(get a man with a real job)

I'm in a whole mess a trouble.. my coin count runnin low
I'm in whole mess a trouble.. .My coin count runnin' mighty low
I can't rightly say... if I'm ever gone get some more

She said she gonna leave.. said she gonna go back home
She said she gonna leave.. she said she gonna go back home
Gonna take this old guitar.. gonna lay down on the lawn..
(n' play some blues)

I'm in a whole mess a trouble.. people I aint got no bread
Tired mean n empty.. people you hearin what I said
Gonna play this ol' guitar.. soon enough be graveyard dead

This whole world damn crazy woman.. what's a man sposed to do
This whole world damn crazy people.. what's a man sposed to do
Man can't 'ford no bread ...can't afford a woman like you...
(don't want one neither)

I'm in a whole mess a trouble.. all my money goods as gone
I'm in a whole mess a trouble.. all my money is already gone
Debts called bills for a reason.. can't get by on these here lousy coins...
(..but that's all I got!)
Track Name: Change in the Weather
Change in the Weather

Feel a change in the weather… A cool mist on the breeze
Ol’ times a ticking,…put my soul in dis ease
The blues is all consuming… yeah it's gotta hold on me
It’s time that Rock went rollin …and bring the blues back home to me

Feel a change in the weather… no more a sunny day
Feel the wind its howlin ..‘n I get liking it that way
The blues is all consuming… bring it on rainy day
It’s time that rock do crumble… coz the blues back home to stay

I feel a change in the weather ..storm clouds rollin in
The temperatures a fallin… the moods a happenin
The Blues is all consuming… like the rain its seeping in
It’s time that rock went rollin.. because the blues back home again
Track Name: Whiskey n' Women
Whiskey n' Women

Whiskey n women... sit n' I'll tell you 'bout them ol' time blues
Whiskey n women... sit n' I'll tell you 'bout them ol' time blues
Whiskey take away your trouble.. Woman surely gon' bring home to you

A fine malt whiskey and that ...lonesome Old Bluesmans lies
A fine malt whiskey and that ...lonesome Old Bluesmans lies
His glass that may 'ppear empty.. .. Same sands o' time for you is running dry

In life there's a secret.. Most folk don't know to say
In life there's a secret.. Most folk don't know to say
Whats fire is sweet water..best things in life's found this way

Some people make you happy.. other folks surely can make you sad
Some people make you happy.. other folks surely can make you sad
Aint drinking bout no trouble
I'm Toastin to that sweet ol' love we shared
I aint drinkin' bout no trouble.. talking bout that sweet ol' life we had
Track Name: Phantom Ford
Phantom ford

Dark n drearys playing on my mind
A flathead ford on a nowhere road... Lost in time
That man Elmo sure does take my brain away
Phantom ford on a monochrome road ... rattlin on its way

Passin under willows branches... passed a house of white
I see a gauge upon the dashboard .. flicker in the night
See the man he's the driver.. black suit black hat
Sightless eyes drivin blind... he aint comin back

Feel the wind outside ... it's starting to rain
I've seen this scene 1000 times .. always the same
That smell of old cigars... mixed with leather
Man sold his soul to the blues..he's gone.... forever

On a pitch black road we're drivin'.. on a moonless night
Like a scene from the silver screen played in black n white
See the man he's the driver.. he can't see me
He sold his soul dead long ago.. he could be me..

Feel the wind outside ... starting to rain
I've seen this scene 1000 times .. always the same
That smell of old cigars... mixed with leather
Man sold his soul to the blues ..he's gone.... forever

Lights himself a cigarette and .. worlds flashing by
Reflected glow from a vintage bezel... got my wondering eye
Floating out through the back of the car ...I watched it fade away
Phantom ford in monochrome world ...rattling on its way..
Track Name: Life Whispered to me
Life whispered to me

Maybe she come ..maybe she stay..
Feel like I'm waitin .. my whole damn life away
Gotta mind fixed to rollin' coz time keep on rollin on
Life whispered to me.. n down that lonely ol road I'm gone

Gotsta hit the road babe, I gotsta roll the dice
Dreaming 'bout heaven.. aint no kind of paradise
Gotta mind fixed to rollin'.. coz time keep on rolling on
Life whispered to me.. n on that lonely road I'm gone

Heart fixed to rollin... mind fixed to stay
Dreaming aint living.. lets steal away today
Gotta mind fixed to rollin', coz time it keep on rollin on
Life whispered to me.. n down that lonely ol' road I'm gone

Gotsta roll that dice.. I gotsa.. take my chance
Life could surely be... a sweet romance
Gotta mind fixed to rollin.. an da big ol' world to keep rolling on
Life whispered to me.. n on that lonely road I'm gone

Maybe she come.. maybe she roll the dice
Maybe she be some sweet... touch of paradise.
Gotta mind fixed to rollin.. coz time keep on rollin on
Life whispered to me.. n down that lonely ol' road I'm gone
Track Name: DJ 1Knob
DJ 1knob
Hey Dj 1knob... you got a mojo hand?
You got the girlies in da house rockin out like you a genuine rockin band
I heard em sayi "he's the best boy"...might be the best in the land
You got em all fooled.. with a light show n thumpin bass my friend
But Dj 1Knob... like that knob you gotta fade
Coz all the girlies in da house ..gonna learn bout groove today

You got em fooled.. you got yourself fooled to
If the power go out... what the world you think gonna do?
N all the girlies ...best be high boy .. they best be high as the moon
Turn up dat bass.. in ya face.. kinda like ... a real musician?
But Dj 1Knob.. like that knob you gotta fade
Coz all the girlies in da house gonna learn bout groove today

Oh Dj One knob.. you aint got no art..
A Swedish table kinda look like wood.. til you take it apart
N all those girlies... they just be playin.. sad ol' fashion part
Just wanna selfie in a club with some grub on a Wednesday night

Ahh Dj 1knob... so much that you can't know
That marching beat don't move the feet like a well played groove with soul
Did you learn your craft twiddlin' with your knob ...on the radio?
Aint a biddy in da house gonna groove to your unplugged show
But Dj 1Knob ...like that knob you gonna fade
Coz all the girlies da house gonna learn bout groove today

DJ 1 knob...DJ1knob.. Dj 1 knob whats the deal?..
All the girlies in da house like a mouse on a spinning wheel
Track Name: Strawberry Jam
Strawberry Jam

I know a sweet little lady ...like strawberry jam
When come to lovin boys.. good god damn
She's my baby.. she's sweet like strawberry jam
When it come to lovin .. good god damn!

Fine tall lady.. cant leave her be
When it come to lovin ...Oh mercy me!!
She's my baby .. I cant stand to let her be
When it come to lovin.. Oh... mercy me!

I love my girl boys, I just can't wait
She rollin' harder .. than a run away freight
She' my baby.. sweet sugar in her hand
She got a new kinda lovin... ..say its.... good god damn!

I love that girl coz she's all so fine
Runnin' wild in my veins.. like a vintage wine
She's my baby.. She's all so fine..
She runnin' wild in my veins.. like a vintage wine

I love that.. she damn tall n thin
Aint no sweet biscuit...shes a rollin pin
She's my baby ...she's fine tall n thin
But she aint no sweet biscuit... She's a god damn rollin pin!
Track Name: Redeye Blues
The Redeye Blues

Such a sad ol' lonesome feelin
Sittin in your room all to yourself (x2)
The one you love she's gone forever...
and you can't want nobody else.

I held her one last lonesome time
I could hardly bare to meet her eyes (x2)
Somehow my words found what was needed
Deep inside my heart most surely died

Tears welled up in my eyes
Knotted soul wick held a dying flame (x2)
The day I lost that woman
She's on a Redeye East bound train

Did you ever know the blues
So damn heavy you can't hardly breathe (x2)
One day I's adrift in a sweetest ocean
Now I'm bottom of the deepest darkest sea

I hit the lonesomest stretch of road
I took 3 friends for company (x2)
Seem like the Blues Hard luck and Trouble
Los tres amigo's won't never let me be
Track Name: She surely know
She surely know

Drivin down the road honey.. bout 6 0'clock
Girl in a white T-shirt makin them.. blue jeans rock
Temperatures a risin honey' ... my needles off the clock
She surely know.. she surely know how to make them blue jeans rock

Driving down the road honey.. what can I say
Blues jeans rockin ..and that t-shirt sway
Temperatures a risin' ..my tune ups gone away
She surely know.. just how to make that t-shirt sway

She hit the floor dancin.. n' how that fine dress hang
Knows how to work it baby.. shake that thang
Shake it pretty baby.. you aint gonna break a thang
Shake it pretty baby.. n let that fine dress swang

The way you dancin' baby.. oh it' such thrill
That tops so low you know you gonna get a chill
Oil temperatures a rising honey.. I'm stalled upon a hill
She surely know.. just how she make a po' boy feel
Track Name: The Devils Hotrod
The Devils Hotrod

In the Devils Hotrod Matt Black 34
Red seat of leather..welcome suicide door
Fire up the Devils Hotrod.. coz the Turkey's runnin dry
Late night, cool air, dark road ...what a way to die

In the Devils hotrod .. lumpin at the lights
Up jumps a little out Rexy, He's itchin for a fight
Road's almost steamin, air temps comin' down
Four words unspoken
…. lets smoke this clown

Hear them engines screamin The Subie got the light
Devils calmly shiftin rear tires set alight
N' as we pull up beside him our rear tyres ablaze
I watched that Suby go backwards lost in...
Hotrod tyre haze!

That Suby had more than I gave him, jumpeded hard on all fours
But If I ever do see him, I’ll give him back his doors
Me n the Devil kept cruising.. into the dead of night
Coz in the Devils Hot rod
...every miles a riot
