HER PATH OF ROSES
Her path of roses, and her feet don’t touch the ground / You’ll see her coming but she’ll never make a sound / She’s an angel made of death and her voice is full of sighs / Beauty can send you to your grave, and she will see to it that you die / And she’ll smile when you die / Just a jezzebell sent here straight from hell / In the beauty of an angel, she’s got you under her spell / Her twisted beauty that burns just like the sun / She can set heaven on fire, and her beauty has just begun / Her pain of roses, and she’ll never touch the ground / She will hold you in her heart, and she’ll never make a sound / No, she never makes a sound / Just a jezzebell sent here straight from hell / In the beauty of an angel, she’s got you under her spell.

SWEET SISTER BESSY BELL
Well, daddy made her from hell / He put a little blood into the wishing well / And that’s just how it fell straight down into hell / My little sister, sweet sister Bessy Bell / Her flesh was on fire. The men folk she’d devour / All those hearts full of lust / She’d send them straight down into hell / My little sister, sweet sister Bessy Bell / She had an evil deep inside / But she knew just how to make it hide / With all her smiles, and her charms / Oh how that girl could do more harm / Just like the devil down in hell /My little sister, sweet sister Bessy Bell.

BACK IN YOUR LOVING ARMS
Well, little darlin’, I can see your smile / Please let me hold you for awhile under the light of the moon / I wanna fall in love again just like we did way back when / Oh come on sweetheart I love you / Just let me kiss those sweet, sweet lips / Let me show you what you have missed / Oh little darlin’, I’m aching for all your charms / Please let me hold for just awhile / I wanna dream of your sweet, sweet smile, and be back there in your loving arms / Sweetheart, I wanna be with you / Please let me hold you undernearth the moon / I’ve gotta be lost forever in your arms / Oh please little darlin’ will you be mine / I’m gonna love you till the end of time / Forever, little darling in your loving arms / Just let me kiss those sweet, sweet lips / Let me show you what you have missed / Oh little darlin’, I’m aching for all your charms / Please let me hold for just awhile. I wanna dream of your sweet, sweet smile / And be back there in your loving arms.

A WOMAN LIKE YOU
Well, a woman like you don’t want nothing to do with an evil hearted man like me / I may look dark and handsome but I’m no damn good / Oh why can’t you see / I was born to break hearts, and your’s I will have to put among the many on my shelf / I’ll charm you with words, and my devilish ways / Then send you burning right straight to hell.

IT’S GOOD OF YOU
Well, it’s good of you to bring me to this fight that I didn’t intend / And it’s good of you to break my heart though you’ve done it time and again / And it’s good of you to leave me here standing alone in the rain / And it’s good of you to hold me close after you’ve caused to much pain / Well, it’s good of you to still be friends after you told me goodbye / And it’s good of you to give you love after you wanted for me to die / And it’s good of you to call it quits and still hold onto my heart / And it’s good of you to let me go, I just wish you would’ve done it from the start.

TRUE FRIENDS NEVER WORRY ABOUT TRUE FRIENDS
Well, among them all here I do not belong / They say we’re good friends then why do I feel so alone / See them cow-eyed looks, they’re all just worried about me / They tell me we’re best friend but they don’t know a thing about me / Because true friends never worry about friends / They won’t leave you sinking in all that pitty and sin / Because true friends are true friends / And they’ll hold out with you till the bitter end / They tell me how much that they miss their old friend / And they all wonder if he might pass this way again / But after climbing out of hell, I’m happy to be around / But you’re never the same after fighting to stay above ground / Because true friends never worry about friends / They won’t leave you sinking in all that pitty and sin / Because true friends are true friends / And they’ll hold out with you till the bitter end / Well, look at them watch me, they’re all waiting for me to fall / They ask how I’m doing in hopes they can see me crawl / I’m stuck in this hole, because they all put me in here / At least that’s what they think as I slide right on out of here / So, let them all worry as I pass them on by / I’ll pass them all like strangers, and never be the one to say goodbye / And if I’m to fall, I’m gonna do it my own damn way / And stay clear of those who say we’re friends just to say.

SHE’S A PRETTY BIRD
Well, she’s a pretty bird, and she flies real high / And everyone wants for her to die / Down from the heavens for which she fell / A pretty little bird in the depths of hell / Just a pretty little bird in the depths of hell / She spread them wings up toward the sun / Her little heart’s so strong. Her little heart’s so young / She’s made there from the lord’s right hand / She do what she will, and try what she can / he’s a pretty bird, and she flies so near / That the angels above all shed a tear / Her pretty colors shine with a summer glow / A blood red shade as white as snow / The devil can’t wait ‘till she flies straight down
He wants her pretty wings so he can fly around / So, he’ll tell her pretty things, and sing her song / And hopes the pretty bird will come along / Then one day she flew right on down / And the devil pushed wings straight through the ground / He pulled her little wings off with his bloody red hands / And he slit her pretty throat right where he stands / So, if you’re gonna fly stay clear from hell / ‘Cause the devil gets jealous, and you can never quite tell / He might wanna fly like the pretty little bird / And he’ll take you so fast without a whisperin’ word / And you’ll perish down below like a pretty little bird

MY SWEETHEART DARLING BABY
Well, little darlin’, I can see your smile / Please let me hold you for awhile under the light of the moon / I wanna fall in love again just like we did way back when / Oh come on sweetheart I love you / Just let me kiss those sweet, sweet lips / Let me show you what you have missed / Oh little darlin’, I’m aching for all your charms / Please let me hold for just awhile / I wanna dream of your sweet, sweet smile / and be back there in your loving arms / Sweetheart, I wanna be with you / Please let me hold you undernearth the moon / I’ve gotta be lost forever in your arms / Oh please little darlin’ will you be mine / I’m gonna love you till the end of time / Forever, little darling in your loving arms / Just let me kiss those sweet, sweet lips / Let me show you what you have missed / Oh little darlin’, I’m aching for all your charms / Please let me hold for just awhile / I wanna dream of your sweet, sweet smile / and be back there in your loving arms.

THEY CALL ME THE ZERO
I’ve spent my life face down in the dirt / I’ve had my beatings, and I’ve been hurt / I’ve held my own now for so many years / I’ve had my heartache, and have shead my tears / And they call me the zero / I’ll stay out of your way with your kicks and your punches and my no good ways / They call me the zero and I stay drunk all the time / Go ahead and abuse me you ain’t no friend of mine / You’re no friend of mine / I have no friends to call my own / I drink with myself, ‘cause I’m better alone / Day in and day out I hide inside myself / down here at the bottom I’m closer to hell. And they call me the zero / I’ll stay out of your way with your kicks and your punches and my no good way / They call me the zero and I stay drunk all the time / Go ahead and abuse me you ain’t no friend of mine / You’re no friend of mine.

LOST CLAIM
The memories of you they sometimes bring me on down / Straight on down to the bottom where you never come around / And you’re never there when I go looking for you above ‘cause I’ve done lost my claim to all of your love / So, here alone I twist around in my own hell / You’ll never love me anymore / Though in my heart you’ll always dwell / And I’ve given away this heart of mine before / But I’m back here on the bottom just wanting up off your floor / But the past is always there falling in and out of love and I’ve done love my claim to all of your love.

BECAUSE I AIN’T LIKE YOU
It’s the lonely hearts in all the musty bars that send all the innocent down the river / But that’s okay for me to act this way as long as I can make your poor bones shiver / You say I’m too dumb, well darling you’re too young, and lately these days I don’t give a damn / You say I’m going to hell, I tell you oh well, it still feels good to be a no good man / Cause I ain’t like you, I don’t brag around town claiming to be some angel headed saint / They all can’t see your wicked fangs craving the blood from some Romeo’s pain / And you wanted for me to just dig a hole, and bury me down deep with my own good name / But that ain’t me, because I ain’t like you / I know how to cut my nose off to spite my face / Yeah, that ain’t me, because I ain’t like you / I can go to hell my own damn way / Oh, that ain’t me, because I ain’t like you / And pray to God, I never will.

CHASING GHOSTS AROUND
Well, I’m out here in the moonlight chasing ghosts around in my front yard / Don’t ask me how it is that I got here / Because I’m cold, drunk, and tired / Well, your mind can play tricks on you sometimes, and lead you right back from which you came / Trying hard to hold on to something / Hoping that your crazy never goes insane,

FRENCH LAKE
Well, I met you last summer in Saint Paul / I fell in love with your brilliance, and your gaul / Oh will you be there when I return to Saint Paul / I’m up here in French Lake, and I’m doing fine / These people here are my family when I’m away from mine / And I can hear heavenly music from those angels outside / Then I turned around, and seen myself / Another Okie rebel who’d climbed his way up out of hell / And his story soothed my soul / And that was when I was getting well.
