Track Name: Grand Ole Uproar
Get ready for that hard rock sound
Mama’s rock your baby’s abound
Turn me on
And turn it up
And turn me loose

No need for the static age
Don’t bother with your latest phase
Turn me on
And turn it up
And turn me loose
Track Name: Decca Doll
Do you think you could save my life?
And if you could, could I make you my wife?
Tractor-trailer push pull or drag
Save me from these denim lunch bags

After all you’re my Decca Doll
And that makes it all right

If I promise you the stars
Would you leave the honky tonks and bars?
I can’t shake these shakes from Casper to Cheyenne
Lord knows I’m doing the best I can

After all you’re my Decca Doll
And that makes it all right

One made one in 84’
And now one’s on the way

Will you show me a new kind of way?
One to follow and not to stray
Time will heal all heartaches it's true
Please seize me oh yeah like i seize you

After all you’re my Decca Doll
And that makes it all right
Track Name: All My Rowdy Friends (Joined The Tea Party Movement)
Give me forty false blows in the midnight hour
A Betty of lovely’s before they sour
A Walkmen beat box standard procedure
Needles and knives for the following feature

Quick, quick c'mon tell me some more
(Tell him some more)
Hurry, hurry just like the night before

Can you heal my rhythm and fear my blues?
I can’t shake this Molotov attitude
Now I wont play nice or try to agree
Rotting through the core there’s always one bad seed

Quick, quick c'mon tell me some more
(Tell him some more)
Hurry, hurry just like the night before

Chains of love
(Set me free)
Track Name: Tammys of Tomorrow
I don’t know why I say goodbye
I come back to you
You tie my mind up oh so tight
I can’t cut through it

Will my eyes stay dry?
Or will it be like last time?

Tammys of tomorrow…
Stand by your man

You find new ways to pull me in
You keep me guessing
So helpless when I’m giving in
Now I’m undressing

Will my eyes stay dry?
Or will it be like last time?

Tammys of tomorrow…
Stand by your man
Track Name: Red Headed Strangler
A black light is swinging
In a hazy room
I know you feel my hunger
I know you hear my doom

Show me death cards
The High Priestess, Moon
The Hanged Man is calling for you

My heathen hands are tired
My fingers ache with hate
A night shift for lovers
Will soon find their fate

Show me death cards
The High Priestess, Moon
The Hanged Man is calling for you
Track Name: Gin and Juice Newton
When I see you with him
My eyes start to dim
I try so hard to look away
What else could I say?

Meet me at our secret place
Once for old time sake

You found yourself a new man
Go paint the town tan
If you should ever want me back
I’m not far off the track

Meet me at our secret place
Once for old time sake

Closer, longer stay with me
Track Name: Ain't No Byrd Ain't No Burrito
Midnight comes we make new discoveries
Playing in snow, desert academies
Call it trash, Cosmic American
Nudie Suits ignored by the Budokan

I ain’t no byrd, I ain’t no burrito
Let me tell you something you might already know

Public appearances fall short of quality
Damage control damn the vicinity
My creditable source makes full recovery
Daylight comes we make new discoveries

I ain’t no byrd, I ain’t no burrito
Let me tell you something you might already know

They said that I hurt you
They said that I desert you
Oh it’s a lazy day
Track Name: The Hag's Curse
Left foot in
To kingdom come
Right foot out
The worst is done

Headlights on
For safety first
The cars pile up
To claim the worst

Bow for the crown of your lord
Kiss the misty sword
Duchess wringing through

Lightning crashes
Fog rolls in
Dead man laughing
Dead man win

Call me savior
Fear my name
Grant me wishes
Grant me fame

Bow for the crown of your lord
Kiss the misty sword
Duchess wringing through
Track Name: No Show
Everything is double
No cost for the price you pay
I try to be subtle
And not get in your way

Take away the things you say
At your song and dance I’ll be a no show

I’m a wrecking ball
It all comes crashing down
Seven stories tall
Frustration has me now

Take away the things you say
At your song and dance I’ll be a no show
Track Name: Bikini Kill Yourself
Bikini kill yourself
Bikini kill yourself
Bikini kill yourself
Bikini kill yourself

I ain’t dissin’ women’s lib
But I’ll take Loretta Lynn
You can have Tobi Vail
Just don’t fuck with Crystal Gail

Bikini kill yourself
Bikini kill yourself
Bikini kill yourself
Bikini kill yourself
Track Name: The Ballad of Waylon and Jessi
Jessi was restless child shooting straight from the hip
Waylon was a ramblin’ man on an outlaw tip
Jessi came to see him play out in PHX
Waylon knew this was something good that he had to protect

Despite the past
Storms never last
Suspicious minds
Crossing state lines
It’s back to the basics of love

Waylon wants a do right woman but he’s an all night man
Jessi wants the simple life and not out on the lam
Waylon likes the bright lights and his good time friends
Jessi said "You made your choice, I’ll choose the ring instead."

Despite the past
Storms never last
Suspicious minds
Crossing state lines
It’s back to the basics of love

Oh let our love survive
(I’ll dry the tears from your eyes)
Don’t let a good thing die
