Track Name: County Road Bound/Mean Town Blues
Reach up, mama, hand me down my .45
Got a mind, got a mind, gonna terrorize that Vicksburg, it's not for mine
And the sun don't shine on my back door
I've been drunk and driven, Friar's Point, good Lord

She's just like a heart disease
Consumption killing me by degrees
County road bound, travel on poor John, Lord, just can't turn you 'round

And she has 38 teeth to penetrate
My graveyard love but she's too late
There's blood there's skin there's bad breath in my bones
I believe I'll start a graveyard of my own

That sun won't shine on my backdoor
I been drunk and driven, Friar's Point, good Lord

She's just like a heart disease
Consumption's killing me by degrees
County road bound, travel on

Lord my mother she done told me
My father told me, my father told me too
"That's a mean old town and it ain't no friend to you"

Lord I worked for the dollar on that welfare flour
Man, that military dime
She's a big white girl and she ain't no friend of mine
Track Name: Up Jumped The Devil
I'd rather be the devil, to be that woman's man
If the water was burning, would not raise me to her hand
If the good Lord made the water then the devil made the dry land
I rolled and I tumbled, cried the whole night long
I rose up this morning, didn't know right from wrong

She's got a lien on my body and a mortgage on my soul

Now the devil's got a million women, he just got one more
If I stay in Louisiana, mama, Lord they'll hang me sure
I'm no duck, I'm no ooze
Said I'm gonna drive, drive my blues away

Got a key to the highway and my rider's on a cooling board
She got a lien on my body and a mortgage on my soul
And those preachers keep on preachin'...

If I could holler like that mean whistle blows
I would raise my rider off that killing floor
If the river was whiskey and I was a diving duck
I'd dive to the bottom, never would I come up

I've got a key to the highway and my rider's on a cooling board
She's got a lien on my body and a mortgage on my soul
Track Name: Rocket USA
Rocket rocket USA
Shootin' on down the skyway
TV star riding around
Riding around in a killer's car
It's 1977, whole country's doing a fix
It's doomsday, doomsday, doomsday, doomsday

Riding around and riding high
Riding around with my baby
Shootin' on down the skyway
Shootin' on down on my way
It's 1977, whole country's doing a fix
It's doomsday, doomsday, doomsday, doomsday

Said shootin' on down that skyway
TV star in a killer's car
100mph want to crash
100mph want to die
Speeding on down that highway
Riding around with my baby
It's doomsday, doomsday, doomsday
Track Name: Going Down To The River
Gonna buy a shotgun as long as I am tall
Gonna shoot my baby, just to see her fall
Going down to the river, sit right on the ground
If the blues overtake me I'll jump overboard and drown
I'm the jailhouse key, I'm the judge and the chief police
But when I go to Atlanta and I walk on Decatur St.
I can't see no peace, take morphine and die
Can't find a town that could satisfy my mind

Going down to the river to get me some rope and a rock
Tie it around my neck and jump right off the dock
Ain't no one can change my mind
I've been mistreated baby and I don't mind dying
I'm gonna get me a razor, keep it with my gun
Cut her if she stands still, shoot her if she runs
Track Name: Cannonball
I'm so mad this morning, don't know where in the world to go
This 32-20 is hanging on my bedroom door

Feel like a broke-down engine, ain't got no driving wheel
If you ever been broke and lonesome you know just how Johnny feels
I'm gonna grab me a train, going back to Baltimore
Gonna find my baby, because she road that B&O

And I went on Green River, rolling like a log
I think I must have heard that Marion whistle blow
Some people say, "Green River blues ain't bad"
Well it must not have been those Green River blues I had

I'm so mad this morning, don't know where in the world to go
These evil-hearted women have put the jinx all 'round my bedroom door
Big 80 left Savannah, Lord it did not stop
You could see that colored fireman when he got that boiler hot
You's a cruel fireman, lowdown engineer
I'm trying to make my way and you leave me standing here
Track Name: Gasoline
I was in Aberdeen trying to get to New Orleans
Aberdeen women told me, "will buy my gasoline"
Looking for a fever, looking funny in my eyes
Looking for my special rider on the riverside

20 inches of burning hell
20 miles back to Clarksdale
Two black shoes and three bad strings
Put a knife on the neck and make the motherfucker sing

Express man, agent, let a poor boy ride
I got the evil, got the devil, got the mean things on my mind
You know when I get there on the Green River side
I'm gonna beat my woman 'til I get satisfied

I was in Aberdeen trying to get to New Orleans
Aberdeen women told me, "will buy my gasoline"
Looking for a fever, looking funny in my eyes
Looking for my special rider on the riverside

20 inches of burning hell
20 miles back to Clarksdale
Two black shoes and three bad strings
Put a knife on the neck and make the motherfucker sing
Track Name: Fire Next Time
I'm a-coming, I'm a-going
I ain't looking and I sure never found
One good thing in one good town

The rains came, the clouds have gone
Rain is sleeping on the branches in your yard
Let me fall asleep here in your arms

And use your bosom for my pillow
Use your bosom for my pillow
Use your bosom for my pillow
Little darling, when the world's on fire
It won't be water but fire next time

And if one morning the sun don't shine
On my backdoor, honey I don't mind
If the seas turn to the color of fire
I won't weep and I won't cry
It won't be water but fire next time
