Flesh and Blood

Strange Days of Uncle Jack (Instrumental)
Valley of Lost Souls I hit the highway Touch life barely sixteen No angel of mercy Coming down to save the soul of me I took a Greyhound limousine Straight to grand central NYC It was ass, gas, or grass, living fast Nobody rides for free Chorus: Living it up, giving it up Living in the valley of lost souls Wanting it all, taking the fall Living in the valley of lost souls Miss Misery come ride me How I love her company She did Boston justice And wronged all the right out of me The devil wears a black suit He says I'm livin' like a bum So what I'm looking like I'm half dead A gypsy on the run Chorus Feels like time's running out on me But I wasn't born to play nobody's fool Ain't nobody gonna hold me down to play nobody's fool Ain't nobody gonna hold me down I've gotta roll, roll, roll, roll, roll, roll Solo Somebody save me
(Flesh & Blood) Sacrifice Like animals Tonight we make it You give me an inch, I'm gonna take it I'll steal your love Like a thief To be as one is my belief Don't look back and have no regrets Like beasts of prey we must feed on it I'll be your one, your one and only To feel me burn come close and hold me Chorus: Flesh and Blood sacrifice Melts the heart like fire and ice Flesh and blood like fire to ice Are you willing to sacrifice There's no more time, Don't think about The flame will die If you doubt It's a game of Love and hate To lose it all's a chance we take Come to me and take my hand It's in the fire that we must stand I'll take you down under my gun Our flesh and blood will be as one Chorus Our blood runs deeper than a river The less you need the more I'm gonna give you And give you but good Solo, chorus

Swampjuice (Soul-O) (Instrumental)
Unskinny Bop What's got you so jumpy? Why can't you sit still, yeah? Like gasoline you wanna pump me And leave me when you get your fill, yeah Every time I touch you honey you get hot I want to make love you never stop Come up for air you push me to the floor What's been going on in that head of yours Chorus: Unskinny bop Just blows me away Unskinny bop, bop All night and day Unskinny bop, bop, bop, bop She just loves to play Unskinny bop nothin' more to say You look at me so funny Love bite got you acting oh so strange You got too many bees in your honey Am I just another word in your page, yeah, yeah Every time I touch you honey you get hot I want to make love you never stop Come up for air you push me to the floor What's been going on in that head of yours Chorus You're sayin' my love won't do ya But that ain't love written on your face Well honey I can see right through ya We'll see whose ridin' who at the end of the race Solo What's right What's wrong What's left What the hell is going on Chorus

Let It Play Did you ever get up on the wrong side of bed With an achin' head and just fall apart? You're running late, the boss is bitchin', It's cold outside, and the car won't start Well I don't mean to bitch I swear Cause we all got our cross to bear Chorus: But when I hear the music All my troubles just fade away When I hear the music Let it play, let it play When I hear the music Sure as darkness I can see the day When I hear the music Let it play Let it play Life's just rented space getting laid to waste When the lines on my face say I'm growing older Just a stitch in time gonna save my mind When the weight of the world lies on my shoulders Soon I won't have a place to fit But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it Chorus

Life Goes On I felt this before Now I feel it again No matter how hard I try This feeling won't end So I pretend you're here by my side Tonight on this lonely ride I keep telling myself that Chorus: Life goes on while you're miles away And I need you Time goes on as night steals the day There's nothing I can do You heal up my wounds I tasted your tears You spilled out your heart So I let out my fears But one fear that I kept to myself Was how I prayed that you'd love no one else Like you're saying you love me Chorus If you only knew how much I miss you Solo When my mind plays these tricks on me It shows me things I don't want to see That's why I tell myself I keep telling myself Just take another piece of me Chorus And this last mile I travel with you

Come Hell or High Water I've got no worries I've got no regrets Who they think they're kidding They ain't seen nothing yet You point your finger try to tell me I'm wrong That never stopped me from singin' my song I got the last laugh at the things they do Eliminate them at the turn of a screw I never lived by nobody's rules I won't be sinking on that ship of fools Can't push me no matter how hard they try Stand back, it's my turn to fly Chorus: Come hell, hell or high water Nothing's gonna hold me down Come hell, hell or high water Ain't no body messin' me around I see their wicked ways and miles of endless lies Their jaded lives Couldn't erase my smile But what's this shit that I just heard Son of a bitch you're working on my nerves I'll watch you choke on your last words It's about time you got what you deserved I never lived by nobody's rules I won't be sinking on that ship of fools Can't push me no matter how hard they try Stand back, it's my turn to fly Chorus I've got something that's been on my mind Come close I'll tell you the problem that I find I'm sick and tired of the damage you've done Don't blame me I ain't the one Blame yourself for the ghosts in your past Kiss my ass Solo, chorus

Ride the Wind Hearts of fire Streets of stone Modern warriors Saddle iron horses of chrome Taste the wild Lick the wind Like something they never saw before Their jaws dropping to the floor Steel made of soul and sin Rebels born without a care And the day he listens Only to fly where eagles dare And the night she whispers Chorus: Ride the wind Never coming back until I touch the midnight sun Ride the wind Never coming back again Ride the wind Never coming back until I touch the midnight sun Painted flesh Loyalty Humble pride Just as far as the eye can see Stories told Two old friends Of battle scars and lonely bars And nights the rain wouldn't end Here's to withered eyes wearing gypsy smiles And the day he listens Here's to lovely ladies and a million miles And the night she whispers Chorus Solo Of all the truths and lies And stories of riders in the sky They say only the bravest try Where eagles and angels dare to fly Chorus

Don't Give Up an Inch Chorus: Don't give up an inch girl If you won't take me for the mile Don't give up an inch girl If you won't take me for a mile Miles from home and I'm all alone And looking for a first time We took a long ride And there by your side I did my first crime Well Mary Mary quite contrary Just how does your garden grow She said you ring my bell And rattle my shell I'll be your pretty maid all in a row Put me to the test Lay me down to rest While your nails cut me up like a knife Put me in you like a flesh tattoo And scarred this poor boy for life Chorus It was a hot one In the summer sun And more than heat was rising I remember that September And just how you left me smiling I left there shaken Body was achin' Like it never did before Begged and pleaded Swear I needed Needed you a whole lot more Put me to the test Lay me down to rest While your nails cut me up like a knife Put me in you like a flesh tattoo And scarred this poor boy for life Chorus, Solo Made this boy's bell ring And there I earned my wings Left me there in sweet pain Hell I'll never be the same Chorus

Something To Believe In Will I see him on the TV Preachin' 'bout the promised land He tells me to believe in Jesus And steals the money from my hand Some say he was a good man But Lord I think he sinned, yeah Twenty-two years of mental tears Cries a suicidal Vietnam vet Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore To find his country didn't want him back Their bullets took his best friend in Saigon Our lawyers took his wife and kids, no regrets In a time I don't remember In a war he can't forget He cried "Forgive me for what I've done there Cause I never meant the things I did" Chorus: And give me something to believe in If there's a Lord above And give me something to believe in Oh, Lord arise My best friend died a lonely man In some Palm Springs hotel room I got the call last Christmas Eve And they told me the news I tried all night not to break down and cry As the tears rolled down my face I felt so cold and empty Like a lost soul out of place And the mirror, mirror on the wall Sees my smile it fades again Chorus Sometimes I wish to God I didn't know now The things I didn't know then Road you gotta take me home Solo I drive by the homeless sleeping on a cold dark street Like bodies in an open grave Underneath the broken old neon sign That used to read JESUS SAVES A mile away live the rich folks And I see how they're living it up While the poor they eat from hand to mouth The rich is drinkin' from a golden cup And it just makes me wonder Why so many lose, so few win Chorus You take the high road And I'll take the low road Sometimes I wish to God I didn't know now The things I didn't know then And give me something to believe in

Ball and Chain Come on, come on Get on your dress and put on a smile Lets lose this place and get out awhile, awhile, awhile You don't need nothin' fancy Just a whole lot of attitude I'll be your man now baby If you're doing what I want you to do I keep on tellin' ya Chorus: She's my ball and chain My lock and key And I'm liking it baby She's my ball and chain My lock and key And I'm liking it good I'll t-t-t-tell ya Momma always said There was plenty of fish in the sea So I baited my hook but good And caught one for me, just for me She'll set you up with her body And then knock you out with charm She's just a little too nasty baby But that never did me no harm, no I keep on telling ya Chorus And she'll always be wrapped tight around me I t-t-t-tell ya

Life Loves a Tragedy Of all the words that I've spoken And lies that I've told Of all the hearts left broken Begged for, bought, and sold Lord I'm feeling lonely Feel like I can't go on The streets have all grown cold now The mysteries all gone She's all gone She's all gone, gone, gone All gone now She's all... Well I ain't getting any younger Can't you see it in my eyes She sweet has turned to sour I think it's time for me to fly Well my vices have turned to habits And my habits have turned to stone The lies chipped away at my smile now baby While the truth ate me down to the bone One more step and I swear I'll be over the edge I've gotta stop living at a pace that kills Before I wake up dead Chorus: Good times, bad times How life loves a tragedy Heartbreaks, heartaches How life loves a tragedy The nights I spent in danger With strangers I thought were friends Only to wake in anger For some pleasure they swore they'd send I think it's time I move on Like a rolling stone Cause I got all the broken dreams I can buy It's time to sell the ones I stole Chorus Well I paid the price For every thrill I got Those thrills are all long gone baby But I'm still paying for them like it or not Solo I think it's time I move on like a rolling stone Cause I got all the broken dreams I can buy It's time to sell the ones I stole Chorus

Poor Boy Blues My daddy said "Son, don't you come to me cryin' Cause money don't make you a happy man" He said the grass is always greener Any place except where you stand He said some are born to win And some born to lose And sing them poor boy blues Watch out I've lived uptown, downtown Lord I've lived everywhere Almost drowned in the puddle of my own sweat I swear I believe it's due time I get my mansion in ole Bel Air Chorus: But I'm still singin' those poor boy blues Poor boy blues You don't know how I'm feeling baby Until you're wearing my shoes Sure as I'm standing here I got them poor boy blues Friday night I get tanked up And tossed in the local slam At least I get three square meals Until someone gets me out of this jam In the meanwhile all my green Is going to Uncle Sam Chorus: Walk this dog Solo Chorus
