Track Name: Gold Coast Shuffle
Well the gold coast boys
They make all the noise
When they get down to playing those blues
And it's a wonderful sound when the heat dies down
Just sit and have a drink with you
Well come on baby won't you be my lady
Sit under the sycamore tree
I got all these ideas about how to please you
If you spend some time with me

And it's a cold, cold day in hell
It's a cold, cold day in hell

I'm a gold coast swinger never meant to be a singer
But I think I can stay in key
Well keep up now we're still getting down
just need some more room to breathe
Well pass me that cigarette and lend me a light
Cause it looks like we might just be up all night
And just cause I don't want none doesn't mean that I ain't got some
It's the same old score for sure

And it's a cold, cold day in hell
It's a cold, cold day in hell
It's a cold, cold day in hell
Track Name: Delilah
Said Delilah
With those cold, cold eyes
I want it my way
And I promise I won't put up
Much of a fight
I got 16
Keys in the back
Of my car
& the sheriff
Keeps asking me
Where I got these scars

Sitting
At the station
Waiting
For my train to take me home
When the
Lights went out
& that fight broke out
I was bleeding she was crying and the body it was lieing on the floor cold as stone
Saw it on the news when I got
Home

So Delilah
Won't you take me home tonight?
Got one last chance
One last romance
And I'm headed south with the morning light
I got 16
Keys in the back
Of my car
& the sheriff
Keeps asking me
Where I got these scars

Sitting
At the station
Waiting
For my train to take me home
When the
Lights went out
& that fight broke out
I was bleeding she was crying and the body it was lieing on the floor cold as stone
So won't you please take me home
Track Name: Bourbon For 2
Well come on girl won't you show me your world
I been biding my time just waiting
For You
We can talk all night till we see sunlight
With a bottle of bourbon that's split
For 2

Oh and the sunlight
Comes through those blinds
And I cover my eyes
To protect my sight
You walk out the door
Never seen you before
Don't know you name but I'm
So glad you came
12 hours gone
Drinking till the sun
Well you might not believe it's true but I'm in
Love
With you

Been wandering round all over town
Nobody seems to no anything
About you
The party life doesn't quite feel right
Unless you take the time to drink
For 2

Oh and the sunlight
Comes through those blinds
And I cover my eyes
To protect my sight
You walk out the door
Never seen you before
Don't know you name but I'm
So glad you came
12 hours gone
Drinking till the sun
Well you might not believe it's true but I'm in
Love
With you
Track Name: Bronze In My Pocket
Got bronze in my pocket
Got bronze in my shoes
Got bronze in my whiskey
Keeping me down in the blues
Got bronze in my cigarettes
And bronze in my bones
When I lay my head down at night
This bronze is cold as stone oh lord
Said this bronze is cold as stone

Well she took my gold and my silver
Took my health and my pride
Took everything that made me a man
And left me staring in the devil's eyes
Oh staring in the devil's eyes oh lord
Said staring in the devil's eyes

Got mud on my doorstep
Been there all my life
Oh I'd try and clean it up but
I live where the sun don't shine
Well my baby done left me
Left me nothing but my shoes
Took my gold and silver
And now I got bronze and blues oh lord
Now I got bronze and blues

Well she took my gold and my silver
Took my health and my pride
Took everything that made me a man
And left me staring in the devil's eyes
Oh staring in the devil's eyes oh lord
Said staring in the devil's eyes

Well I went out walking
Walking for days and days
Bottle of Jack and my old walking shoes
Keeping the devil at bay oh lord
Said keeping the devil at bay

Well she took my gold and my silver
Took my health and my pride
Took everything that made me a man
And left me staring in the devil's eyes
Oh staring in the devil's eyes oh lord
Said staring in the devil's eyes
Track Name: Cherry Ho
Met a man one day way back in '42
Piece of street scum always on the run
Wasn't much that he wouldn't do
Well he met this gal with a pretty smile
Thought she was mighty fine
And he was sly enough to get between the sheets
Without spending a dime

Ho cherry ho little lady I'll be rolling on
Ho cherry ho little lady afore the break of dawn

Boy in '64 was a soldier in Vietnam
Poor kid got drafted
Three days before his high school prom
Well he knew that he might die
And so he new what he better do
So he hit the streets of Saigon
Looking for a girl to cure his bootstrap blues

Ho cherry ho little lady I'll be rolling on
Ho cherry ho little lady afore the break of dawn
Track Name: Smile
I've been stuck in this rainy day for a while
Been a long time since I felt myself smile
Don't know why I've played this game so long
Here I am without a plan and lonely I roam

But it's another rainy day
And I'm just trying to chase the clouds away

Little darlin won't you go my way for a while
So I can spend some time in your sweet southern smile
Don't know why I've played this game so long
But you just might be the one who can help me move on

But it's another rainy day
And I'm just trying to chase the clouds away

So darlin won't you go my way
We can chase all the clouds away
And darlin won't you come and say
That you'll stay and go my way
Track Name: Cothespin R%R
Walking down this golden road
Not quite sure which way to go
Looking round through the trees
But all I see is me
All I see

Come on down to my cave
With a whiskey kicker I feel so brave
So much uncertainty just trying
Trying not to breathe
So you see

Well it's clothespin rock and roll takes so long to fill your soul I don't know which way to go inside a penitentiary surrounded by broken dreams I don't know which way to go oh no

Look into a mirror trying to see clearer
Feel like I'm just wasting time all I see
Are these little white lines
Wasting time

Broken bottles and bloody knees
Stuck inside my head it seems
Am I awake or am I just going down
Underground
Leaving town

Well it's clothespin rock and roll takes so long to fill your soul I don't know which way to go inside a penitentiary surrounded by broken dreams I don't know which way to go oh no
Track Name: Train Song
Can't afford no train
Can't afford no train
Oh I'm living on a dollar a day
Drink my blues away
Can't afford no train

Can't afford no train
Can't afford no train
Can't spare a nickle can't spare a dime
Spent it all on a damn good time
Can't afford no train

But it's a long long way to go
And I'm trying to get on home

I know I done you wrong
I know I done you wrong
Spent my life chasing songs
Drinking whiskey and getting stoned
I know I done you wrong

You know you did me wrong
You know you did me wrong
Took my heart home in a jar
Took it out and ripped it apart
You know you did me wrong

But it's a long long way to go
And I'm trying to get on home

And if I only could
Oh if I only would
If I only could
If I only would

Can't afford no train
Can't afford no train
Oh I'm living on a dollar a day
Drink my blues away
Can't afford no train
Track Name: Redneck Romance
Well come on sexy mama said don't you worry now
Hurricane slim is coming back to town
Pocket full of pills and he'll spread the wealth around
Give us all a chance to pay our bills down

I got debts keep piling up but ain't gonna worry now
My lovely little lady keeps my feet on the ground
But you know lately she keeps on slipping out
Open up the front door and the back door slams realy loud

She was thick as thieves with a backwoods junkie
Down on her luck and I was starting to worry
I was wasting time on a worthless dream
Cause a redneck romance ain't never what it seems

Old junkie Joe was feelin low outside the whiskey store
Spied my little lady with another man in tow
Eyes went wide in deep surprise and he whistled low and slow
Hitched up his gut and tried to keep up to see where they might go

Down the street in the noonday heat they strode without a word
Old junkie Joe behind them with eyes on my girl
Down to the river to an old and rusty shack
They were making love on a bed of nails with whiskey in the back

She was thick as thieves with a backwoods junkie
Down on her luck and I was starting to worry
I was wasting time on a worthless dream
Cause a redneck romance ain't never what it seems

She was thick as thieves with a backwoods junkie
Down on her luck and I was starting to worry
I was wasting time on a worthless dream
Cause a redneck romance ain't never what it seems
Track Name: Mirror
On the last by and by
When that last lonely whistle cries
Pick you up and I'll take you down
To this lonely little town

Everyone lies on death's door
Nothing works quite right anymore
And the only way to seize the day
Is to sleep the whole long lonely thing away

On the last by and by
When that last lonely whistle cries
Pick you up and I'll take you down
To this lonely little town

Everyone lies on death's door
Nothing works quite right anymore
And the only way to seize the day
Is to drink the whole long lonely thing away

On the last by and by
When that last lonely whistle cries
Pick you up and I'll take you down
To this lonely little town
