Track Name: Down & Dirty
DOWN AND DIRTY

By Tom Gray
©2012 Gray Matter Publishing (BMI)

I lost my job, I lost my home
I lost my wife and all I own
Time to take a look around
See what’s shaking in this town

Down and dirty in the street
But I won’t admit defeat
You ain’t beat till you say so
Down and dirty, here we go

And I say hey
Don’t throw my love away
And I say ho
You it hurts to see you go

Down and dirty, this is true
A woman who won’t stick by you
Was never yours, so now you know
Down and dirty, let her go

And I say hey
Don’t throw my love away
And I say ho
You it hurts to see you go

Down and dirty, this is true
A woman who won’t stick by you
Was never yours, so now you know
Down and dirty, let her go
Down and dirty, let her go
Track Name: Blues in a Bottle
BLUES IN A BOTTLE

By Tom Gray
©2012 Gray Matter Publishing (BMI)

Blues in a bottle
Lord, I wish I could
Put these blues in a bottle
And lock ‘em up for good

It’d be aged about right by now
Have a pretty good bite and how
We could pour it out and have a taste
Be a shame to let it go to waste
That’s the real thing
Rolling round your tongue
Take a sip, have a little nip
We can cork it up when we’re done

Blues in a bottle
Lord, I wish I could
Put these blues in a bottle
And lock ‘em up for good

Telephone keeps ringing
Radio keeps singing
Some forgotten song from 1963
Stirring something deep inside of me
I may never
See your face again
But I wonder if you feel this way too
When you take one on the chin

Blues in a bottle
Lord, I wish I could
Put these blues in a bottle
And lock ‘em up for good

Blues in a bottle
Wish I could somehow
Put these blues in a bottle
And cork the stopper down

That’s the real thing
Rolling round your tongue
Take a sip, have a little nip
We can cork it up when we’re done

Blues in a bottle
Lord, I wish I could
Put these blues in a bottle
And cork ‘em up for good

Blues in a bottle
Wish I could somehow
Put these blues in a bottle
And cork the stopper down
Cork the stopper down
Cork the stopper down
Track Name: Walk Out in the River
WALK OUT IN THE RIVER

By Tom Gray
©2012 Gray Matter Publishing (BMI)

I crossed the desert in a red Chevelle
Took a room in a pink motel
A color TV and a minibar
And a neon sign that said, “No va”.

Can see for miles and miles, seems like
It’s daylight here, but I can see the night
Sweeping cross the plain from east to west
And I feel my heart beating in my chest

Oh yeah, walk out in the river
Yeah, but the river’s run dry
You got to walk out in the river
No one can see you cry

Local boys with nothing to do
Shooting Budweiser cans with a .22
Put a bullet inside the AB ring
You can make another target just by doing your thing

Oh yeah, walk out in the river
Yeah, but the river’s run dry
You got to walk out in the river
No one can see you cry

There’s a little girl down by the swimming pool side
Blowing bubbles with angels trapped inside
When the bubbles pop the angels go free
And they fly away to heaven ‘cross the galaxy

Oh yeah, walk out in the river
Yeah, but the river’s run dry
You got to walk out in the river
No one can see you cry

Yeah, walk out in the river
Yeah, but the river’s run dry
You got to walk out in the river
No one can see you cry
Track Name: Black Cat Oil
BLACK CAT OIL

By Tom Gray and Mark Johnson
©2012 Single Coil Music (BMI)

I saw an ad in a magazine
It said, why not live like a king
Ain’t no need for you to work and toil
All you need’s a bottle of Black Cat Oil

Black Cat Oil
Money in your pocket
Black Cat Oil
Women in your arms
All you need’s a bottle of Black Cat Oil

I sent my money and in two weeks time
I got a bottle ‘bout the size of a dime
I put a dab behind my ear
Set out to see what could happen here

Black Cat Oil
Money in your pocket
Black Cat Oil
Women in your arms
All you need’s a bottle of Black Cat Oil

I hurt the woman that I love best
Lost all my money, now I’m under arrest
But still I hate giving up on the stuff
I must’ve not used enough

Black Cat Oil
Money in your pocket
Black Cat Oil
Women in your arms
All you need’s a bottle of Black Cat Oil
Track Name: Wishbone
WISHBONE

By Tom Gray
© 2012 Gray Matter Publishing (BMI)

Without love a place is not a home
Ain’t much love in this town they call Wishbone
I ain’t worried ‘bout that
I got a hundred bucks in my hat
I’m leaving Wishbone and I might never come back

People say I come from the wrong side of town
Wishbone ain’t but a half a mile around
I ain’t worried ‘bout that
I got a hundred bucks in my hat
I’m leaving Wishbone and I might never come back

They want to build a wall around Wishbone
Keep it safe the way it’s always been
They can shut the whole world out with cold stone
But they ain’t never gonna wall me in

I ain’t worried ‘bout that
I got a hundred bucks in my hat
I’m leaving Wishbone and I might never come back

I ain’t worried ‘bout that
I got a hundred bucks in my hat
I’m leaving Wishbone and I ain’t coming back
Track Name: Black Coffee
BLACK COFFEE

By Tom Gray, Mark Johnson, Franher Joseph and Marlon Patton
©2012 Single Coil Music, Marlon Patton Music (BMI)

I left New York City heading south on 95
I left New York City heading south on 95
I was drinking black coffee, Lord, just to stay alive

I was thinking ‘bout you all the way around DC town
I was thinking ‘bout you all the way around DC town
I was drinking black coffee, Lord, I was slugging it down

When I hit Greenville it must have been four AM
When I hit Greenville it must have been four AM
Black coffee had me shaking like a leaf out on a limb

Black coffee

Knocked on your door in Atlanta as the sun was coming up
Knocked on your door in Atlanta as the sun was coming up
You said, “How ‘bout some coffee?”
I said, “Yeah, but just one cup.”

Black coffee
Yeah, black coffee
Black coffee
Yeah, black coffee
Black coffee, yeah
That’s right
Track Name: Neon Jesus
NEON JESUS

By Tom Gray
© 2012 Gray Matter Publishing (BMI)

Last night I took a walk out State Street
Past the tattoo parlors and the topless bars
With one eye shut and my jaw all swoll up
I was tasting blood and I was seeing stars
From a rooftop down by the river
I saw a light and I heard a buzz
People talk about a neon Jesus
I looked up and, buddy, there he was

Glow on, neon Jesus
What a sight, what a sight to see
Glow on, neon Jesus
Shine your light, shine your light on me
Shine your light on me

People talk about Jesus, they talk about Allah
They talk about the way things used to be
People talk about hell, people talk about heaven
They talk about people like you and me
I know there’s a light in the darkness
Angels don’t mean you no harm
On a rooftop down by the river
He’s waiting there with open arms

Glow on, neon Jesus
What a sight, what a sight to see
Glow on, neon Jesus
Shine your light, shine your light on me
Shine your light on me

Glow on, neon Jesus
Glow on, neon Jesus
Glow on, neon Jesus
What a sight, what a sight to see
Glow on
Glow on
Glow on
Shine your light on
Shine your light, shine your light on me
Track Name: Jukin'
JUKIN’

By Tom Gray and Mark Johnson
©2012 Single Coil Music

When you’re lost and lonely
Drifting out in space
I know a place that we can go
To get back in the human race
Dance to the music
A thumping, crazy sound
You can feel the whole wide world
Stomping, singing, spinning round

Jukin’, let’s go jukin’
Jukin’ all night long

Left on the dirt road
Up around the bend
Keep on rolling, darling
Past where the pavement ends
Just when you’re thinking
We’re lost in the woods
You see that neon blinking
Something frying sure smells good

Jukin’, let’s go jukin’
Jukin’ all night long

Jukin’, let’s go jukin’
Jukin’ all night long
Jukin’, let’s go jukin’
Some jukin’ going on

I been to California
I been to Paris, France
I never seen the like of you
When you do that low down dance
Now when we’re walking
Out by the cars
I love to hear that laugh of yours
Under the moon and stars

Jukin’, let’s go jukin’
Jukin’ all night long
Jukin’, let’s go jukin’
Some jukin’ going on

Dance to the music
Crazy sound
You can feel the whole world
Spinning round

Jukin’, let’s go jukin’
Jukin’ all night long
Jukin’, let’s go jukin’
Jukin’ going on
Some jukin’ going on
Some jukin’ going on
Some jukin’ going on
Some jukin’ going on
Track Name: Sunshine
SUNSHINE

By Tom Gray
©2012 Gray Matter Publishing (BMI)

Love affairs
ome and go
How you get to happily ever after
I don’t know
I ain’t no prince, baby
Don’t ride no silver steed
But if I can’t give you what you want
I’ll still give you what you need

When it storms
Shelter’s what I’ll be
In the midnight hour
I’ll keep you company
All I can give you
Is all of me
If you get to that
We’re going to walk in the sunshine yet

Fairy tales
Sometimes come true
But never quite
The way you might want them to
Be for me, baby
I’ll be for you
And we’ll keep on stumbling on
Until we make it through

When it storms
Shelter’s what I’ll be
In the midnight hour
I’ll keep you company
All I can give you
Is all of me
If you get to that
We’re going to walk in the sunshine yet

When it storms
Shelter’s what I’ll be
In the midnight hour
I’ll keep you company
All I can give you
Is all of me
If you get to that
We’re going to walk in the sunshine yet

Sunshine
Sunshine
We’re going to walk in the sunshine yet
Track Name: Applejack
APPLEJACK

By Tom Gray
©2012 Gray Matter Publishing (BMI)

I come clear up to Asheville
I’ve still got one woman on my mind
If she’ll take me back one more time
Drinking applejack and watermelon wine

Last night over in Knoxville
My boys and me didn’t make a dime
So here we are one more time
Drinking applejack and watermelon wine

Wish I was up on some mountain
With that old bowlegged dog of mine
Take me back one more time
Drinking applejack and watermelon wine

I see a peach in a Ball jar
I know you and me’ll get along just fine
Tip it back one more time
Drinking applejack and watermelon wine

Time rushes by like a river
I’ve still got one woman on my mind
If she’ll take me back one more, take me back one more time
Drinking applejack and watermelon wine
Drinking applejack and watermelon wine
