Track Name: Clear Blue Flame
CLEAR BLUE FLAME

I been hanging with my Uncle Jack
Down in Cabbagetown across the railroad track,
I told him all about me and you,
Said I love her, Jack, but what can I do?

He said, I don't know about women.
Don't know nothing 'bout love.
One thing in the whole wide world
You can be sure of.
All whiskey ain't the same.
Good moonshine
Burns with a clear blue flame.

I said, Jack, I know you and Miss Rae
Been married forty years come Saturday.
You know that's how I want to do.
But it looks like now me and her are through.

He said, I don't know about women.
Don't know nothing 'bout love.
One thing in the whole wide world
You can be sure of.
All whiskey ain't the same.
Good moonshine
Burns with a clear blue flame.

I ain't saying that my heart's on fire.
But I ain't calling Uncle Jack a liar.
Something's burning now, and that's a fact.
I'll tell you what color when I call you back.

I don't know about women.
Don't know nothing 'bout love.
One thing in the whole wide world
You can be sure of.
All whiskey ain't the same.
Good moonshine
Burns with a clear blue flame.
Track Name: Blind Spot
BLIND SPOT

I went to see Madam Bella.
I asked her how she could
Tell what's in the future coming
'Cause I don't see it so good.
She said what will be will be.
It's coming, ready or not.
You just see what you want to see,
That's gonna leave ya
With a big blind spot.

I never had much trouble.
Always been a lucky man.
I never believed in the devil
Until he took me by the hand
And said, son, I been thinking 'bout you.
You know you owe me a lot.
I said I never took nothing from you.
He said I live right here
In your blind spot.

Blind spot, now.

Sometimes it feels like hoodoo,
Sometimes just like a dream.
Sometimes I get all turned around,
And nothing seems like what it seems.
But I -- I'm onto something now.
I'll tell you what I got.
Both eyes wide open now.
I got to feel my way
Through this blind spot.

Blind spot, now.
I got to feel my way
Through this blind spot.
Track Name: Money Changes Everything
MONEY CHANGES EVERYTHING

She said I'm sorry, baby,
I'm leaving you tonight.
I've found somebody new.
He's waiting in the car outside.
Oh, honey, how can you do it?
We swore each other everlasting love.
She said, well, yeah, I know,
But when we did there was one thing
We weren't really thinking of.
And that's

Money.
Money changes everything.
Money.
Money changes everything.
We think we know what we're doing.
That don't mean a thing.
It's all in the past now.
Money changes everything.

He shakes your hand and he smiles
And then he buys you a drink.
He says, I'm your friend, man.
I'll stick with you till the end.
But everybody's only
Looking out for themselves.
And you say, well, who can you trust?
I'll tell you it's just
Nobody else.

Money.
Money changes everything.
Money.
Money changes everything.
We think we know what we're doing.
That don't mean a thing.
It's all in the past now.
Money changes everything.

Money.
Money changes everything.
Money.
Money changes everything.
We think we know what we're doing.
We don't pull the strings.
It's all in the past now.
Money changes everything.
It's all in the past now.
Money changes everything.
Track Name: Trouble in the Home
TROUBLE IN THE HOME

We used to be all lovey dovey.
We used to breathe as one.
But now we're all pushy shovey.
We stare at each other like two loaded guns.

Trouble in the home.
Trouble in the home.
The dog don't get his bone
When there's trouble in the home.

You and me we swore we'd never
Fool around no more.
Now the feeling's strong as ever,
But it ain't the same feeling that we felt before.

Trouble in the home.
Trouble in the home.
The dog don't get his bone
When there's trouble...

The phone rings and there's just breathing.
Then a voice says, listen, man,
When you come home this evening
You'll walk in the front door, hear the back door slam.

Trouble in the home.
Trouble in the home.
The dog don't get his bone
When there's trouble...
Trouble in the home.
Trouble in the home.

Trouble.
Trouble.
Trouble.
In my home.

On the road tonight.
Track Name: Cool Your Jets
COOL YOUR JETS

I can make good time on the bottom
Where the old rocky river runs clear,
But I got to slow down on the switchbacks.
You know there's ice on the road up here.

Mama, cool
Mama, cool
Mama, cool your jets awhile.

I come down here to Atlanta
Where the bright lights shine.
I saw a thousand people in a quarter mile.
Ain't one of them a friend of mine.

Mama, cool
Mama, cool
Mama, cool your jets awhile.

I pressed my ear to the dashboard
To hear the ocean roar.
I swore I heard a mermaid singing,
Why don't you love me like you did before?

Mama, cool
Mama, cool
Mama, cool your jets awhile.

Cool 'em on down.

Mama, cool
Mama, cool
Mama, cool your jets awhile.

Mama, cool
Mama, cool
Mama, cool your jets awhile.
Track Name: Life's a Song
LIFE'S A SONG

Hey, you, in the dusty Ford,
Got your trunk tied down with a bungee cord,
And the little spare on your back right.
That's the second time you sat through this light.

But on some sunset beach in your mind
You're wild and running free
In the sweet soul summertime.
Life's a song, baby.
Sing it one time for me.
One time for me.

Yeah, you, in the torn black dress,
In the pouring rain, and your hair's a mess.
Somebody's calling loud and clear,
But you walk on like you don't hear.

And on some sunset beach in your mind
You're wild and running free
In the sweet soul summertime.
Life's a song, baby.
Sing it one time for me.
One time for me.

Yeah, you, on the nineteenth floor,
You can hold your calls. You can lock the door.
But the wolves are snarling. They're closing in.
And tonight you'll walk on CNN.

But on some sunset beach in your mind
You're wild and running free
In the sweet soul summertime.
Life's a song, baby.
Shake it one time for me.
One time for me.
Life's a song. Come on.
Shake it one time for me.

One time, yeah.
Shake it.
Shake it for me.
Track Name: Stranger in My Hometown
STRANGER IN MY HOMETOWN

I've been a long time traveling,
Rambling round and round.
Yeah, I've been traveling,
Rambling round and round.
Come back here now,
I'm a stranger in my hometown.

Familiar faces,
Lord, there's none around.
Familiar places,
Oh, they're all torn down.
I stand here now,
A stranger in my hometown.

Here's where I was born,
Where I went to school.
Here's where I was born,
And where I went to school.
My mama said, son,
You know, we're just passing through.

I'll leave in the morning.
Ain't no use in hanging 'round.
Leave in the morning.
Ain't no use in hanging 'round.
Lay down tonight,
A stranger in my hometown.

I'm weary from traveling,
Rambling round and round.
Weary from traveling,
Rambling round and round.
There's no turning back.
I'm a stranger in my home town.
Track Name: Lap Dog
LAP DOG

Baby, if I'm gonna be your man,
Baby, you got to take me as I am.

I have tried.
I've tried.
I've tried.
I won't be your
Lap dog.

Baby, if we're gonna do this thing,
Baby, you got to give up playing games.

I have tried.
I've tried.
I've tried.
I won't be your
Lap dog.

Baby, I give all I got to you.
But, baby, you got to give me something too.

I have tried.
I've tried.
I've tried.
I won't be your
Lap dog.
Track Name: I'm a Witness
I'M A WITNESS

She buys her jackpot ticket,
Puts it on a credit card.
A pack of smokes,
She just can't quit it.
She wonders why life's so hard.
Faces she never sees,
Wheels behind the wheels,
They look at you and me
Like cattle in the field.

Yes, I'm a witness.
I've seen all I can stand.
Yes, I'm a witness.
Got to raise my hand.

They say a man is just a man,
But two is a company.
And while they're giving with one hand
They're taking away with three.
A soldier dies when he is told,
'Cause that's what a soldier's for.
But a man who buys all that he's sold,
He ain't free no more.

Yes, I'm a witness.
I've seen all I can stand.
Yes, I'm a witness.
Got to raise my hand.

If religion was a thing you could buy, well, well,
The rich'd go to heaven, let the poor go to hell.

Yes, I'm a witness.
I've seen all I can stand.
Yes, I'm a witness.
Got to raise my hand.
Yes, I'm a witness, man.

Yeah.
I'm a witness.
I'm a witness.
Hey, are you a witness?
Yes, I am.
Yes, I am.
I am, I'm a witness.
I am, I'm a witness.
I am.
Yes, I am.
Track Name: You Done Told Everybody
YOU DONE TOLD EVERYBODY

You done told everybody
In your neighborhood
You done told everybody
In your neighborhood
You're a mean mistreater
You don't mean me no good

You don't mean me
Mean me no good

I'm gonna call the sergeant
Tell the chief of police
I'm gonna tell the sergeant
Call the chief of police
You know, my woman done quit me
I can't get no peace

Oh, no
Can't get no peace

I looked down that road
Just as far as I could see
I looked down that road
Just as far as I could see
A whole gang of women
Running right after me

Yeah
They were following me
