Track Name: Pinky Goes to Jail
Well yea yea we stole the money but its already gone
Cause she left me last night and she took it all
So I’m hiding with the brothers at the back of the bar
Then its one more night sleeping in my car
Because I’m running … from John Law

Been a long time running from the deputy
Come on take me down to the penitentiary
Going down down town
They’re getting closer now

And when I wake up alone
Haunted by my dreams
Locked up in a cage
Wishing I was free

I know I’m out of time
Sittin at the bar with a .45
I been running and running and running away
Been running and running and running every damn day

Now the 5-0 on the beat and I can feel him comin
Got a pistol on his side cause he’s a son of a gun
Got me wanted with my picture up in every town
Got a another law man wanna bring me down
And the road and the road it goes on and on
But she broke my heart and now I’m sick of this song
And I broke the law but it ain’t bout right or wrong
Johnny’s in it for the money but the moneys all gone

Got me incarcerated
Haunted by my dreams
Locked up in a cage
Wishing I was free

I know I’m out of time
Sitting at the bar with a .45
Been running and running and running away
Been running and running and running every damn day
Track Name: Big City Song
Well I’m not trying to put down the big city
All of them lights and cars, there’s so damn many
And its overwhelming
The soul that I’m selling

The time is always wearing thin
Tomorrows never gonna be the same again
I don’t wanna go

The times ain’t really a-changing
We’re just getting older and praying for new beginnings

Don’t wanna say goodbye or leave the past behind
Don’t wanna miss my friends
Don’t wanna see the end
I got no plans to climb the buildings in the sky
I got no time anymore

Tomorrow’s time to go our separate ways
Big city bound to work and get paid
But tonight I know that we don’t have to say
What you and I both know anyway
I don’t wanna go

The times ain’t really changing
We’re just getting older and praying for new beginnings
Track Name: A Simple Vision
Been waiting all night
Out in the back yard
With my head up in the sky

Take me away
To outer space
To a simple place
That no one knows

Its been a long long time
So long I think I lost my mind.

There’s a simple vision
When the moon shines like the sun

So take me away
To outer space
To a simple place
That no one knows

Been a long long time
So long think I lost my mind
Track Name: Amanda Lynn
It was late last night
I could barely stand up right
And I couldn’t remember her name

She told me twice
Yea she told me two times
But it just wouldn’t stay in my brain

Goddamn Woman, what is your name?
Good goddamn woman, what is your name?

I was smoking a cigarette
That’s when she looked in to my face
She told me again and I just nod my head
But that name of hers it just wouldn’t stay

Goddamn I love you baby
But I don’t even know your name
I might just remember in the morning time
But Im not gonna promise anything

Goddamn woman what is your name?
Goddamn woman what is your name?

Whats your name?

Standing on the corner with an empty beer
Theres a big man yelling get the hell outta here
Got to stumble home

Walking down the curb and she got my arm
Come on take me home please it ain’t that far
Got to stumble home

Whose got my lighter cause I can’t find mine?
Looking in my face talking bout the time.
Baby I don’t know. I don’t know

Gotta stumble home. Stumble Home.
Track Name: Pinky's Woman
Said I don’t know whats wrong witha me
This life I live oh its gonna kill me
Oh baby baby why don’t you take a risk
And ride with me
Yea ride with me

How do you do it? Your lovin’s got a hold on me
Its undeniable. undeniable.

What am I thinking? she knows my weakness now
Your love and lies and love and lies are spinnin me round
Your love and lies and love and lies are bringing me down
Love and lies and love and lies
Your cherry lips and big old thighs
Gonna bring me down in the end


Woman I’m caught up
Im trapped in your web
And you sure are crazy baby
But you got in my head

Its undeniable no other woman can compare
Its undeniable. undeniable.

What I am thinking? She knows my weakness now
Your love and lies and love and lies are spinning me round
Your love and lies and love and lies are bringing me down
Love and lies and love and lies
Your cherry lips and big old thighs
Gonna bring me down in the end

Now I gotta put in the work
If you wanna put it on the line
It gets dangerous on the corner
Livin this life of crime

We could steal a little fortune
And then live off the land
You can be my one and only
Won’t you take my hand?
Track Name: Saturday Night Zombie
Monsters come around at night
Scaring little children while they’re sleeping

They’re wallowing in delight
They’ll crash your party on a Saturday night

They spread the fever
Yea they spread the fever
With just one bite

They’re gonna put the fever back in Saturday night

Theres a crowd of zombies on my lawn
Well they all move the same dance to the same song

They’re multiplying. Tearing at the walls
They want me with the fever. Want me to join them all
But I don’t wanna be a parta no cult

They spread the fever
Yea they spread the fever
With just one bite
They gonna put the fever back in Saturday night

Groovin to the music
Moaning to the music
Track Name: Pinky's Ride
Got my gun cause I like shootin
I like to drink and I got a little woman
Who likes to boogey and stay up past one

Got my woman and we be cruisin
See Johnnys lights and we get movin
I got a hemme under my hood
Im gonna outrun the law

With my ride, my woman, and my sixshooter
From DC to LA

We cruising
Yea we cruising
Cruisin with my ride my woman and my sixshooter

Woke up next morning bout half past one
Got my sunglasses to hide from the sun
I got my keys
I got my strut
I got my ride
Its time to turn her on

Lets turn it on
Turn it on
Track Name: Graham County Courthouse
Lining up on the curb today
With all the bums outside the courthouse
Man they seem to love this place

So full inside this poor old room
Graffiti carved all over these wooden chapel pews
God knows it true

Misdemeanors and citations
Keep the money rollin in
Turn em loose bring em back again
Gotta get the docket full by 9 AM

Ain’t it just such a shame
When you’re nothing but a number with a name?
Ain’t it just such a shame
When you’re nothing but a case with fines to pay?
Cause its just another day
For the judge and the DA
While I’m sitting with the losers,
The bums and all the boozers
Waiting for my verdict down at Graham

Just sitting down
I gotta wait all day
Cause if you ain’t pleading guilty
They still try to make you pay

Well your honor I’m not sure but I don’t really understand
Just how you’re solving any problems with that mallet
You got in your hands
There’s got to got to be a better plan
Cause this ain’t working

Cause its just another day for the judge and the DA
While Im sitting with the losers, the bums, and all the users
And we all go down to Graham
Track Name: In the Middle
Take me to the middle
The middle of nowhere
Its where I wanna go
The middle of nowhere

A Big city and a small town - there ain’t no difference
When all they got to offer is just the same old system
And everywhere on the highway it all looks the same
Feel like I’m goin crazy in the big machine
Sometimes you think you know it all
Sometimes you don’t know anything

But I wanna know I want to know
whys it gotta be this way
And I wanna go I want to go
To how it was in the first place

So believe me when I tell you
To the barrel of your gun
You can put me back in to the ground
I’m not afraid of where I’m from

Don’t you want something pretty in the picture?
Don’t you take from it what you need?
Don’t you care about what you see?

So move on if your old and your not gonna grow
Shoot the messengers if they just want a show
Move on with your soul if your not gonna grow

And all the greedy people at the top of the world
Just tryin to get higher but they don’t know
All the greedy people at the top of the world
Just chasing the light like a mosquito
Thinking they don’t know that they need the ground
They don’t know that they need the sky
They don’t know that they need the world
And that is why

They call it the middle
The middle of nowhere
