"The Girls From Texas"

"The Girls From Texas"


Well, I met a girl from Texas 'bout a year ago
Hadn't known her for too long when I had to let her go
You see, she had a razor, was ten inches or so
And every night you'd hear her knocking at my door
She said, "Baby, I'll give you the clothes on my back
You can have everything that I've got in my shack
But if you ever try to leave they'll take your out in sack
'Cause me and my razor will see to that"

That's the way the girls are from Texas
That's the way the girls are from Texas
That's the way the girls are from Texas

I thought about my situation, decided not to tarry
For my own self preservation I decided we should marry
When the preacher started reading 'bout till death do us part
I told him, "Skip it, we had that understanding right from the start"

That's the way the girls are from Texas
That's the way the girls are from Texas (Houston to San Antone)
That's the way the girls are from Texas (Got to love 'em right or leave 'em alone)

Well, we settled down, got me a little old job, '65 Fairlane Ford
Every Friday night I would stop in and cash my pay check down at the grocery store
They had a little girl worked in there, must have been about seventeen
She was the cutest thing I had ever seen
It's the same old story and I'm afraid it wasn't too very long
Before we had fallen deeply in love and I knew it was wrong
I said baby, we got to stop this thing right here
Or my woman is gonna cut my throat from ear to ear, that's right
In tearful supplication, she looked up in my face
I could feel her heart was breaking as these sad words she did say
"You should have told me you was married, baby
She pulled out a forty-five and let me have it, right smack between the eyes

That's the way the girls are from Texas
That's the way the girls are from Texas
That's the way the girls are from Texas

She was guilty, I was dead
Now, what'd you think that the old judge said?
"Ah, that's just the way the girls are down here in Texas
Case dismissed!"

That's the way the girls are from Texas
That's the way the girls are from Texas (Houston to San Antone)
That's the way the girls are from Texas (Got to love 'em right or leave 'em alone, boy)

"The Prodigal Son"

"The Prodigal Son"


Now, the prodigal son was a forward child, his mind was not to obey
But after he left his father's house he thought he had gone astray

I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
And be a servant of the Lord

His father saw him coming he met him with a smile
He threw his arms around him saying this is my darling child

I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
And be a servant of the Lord

The father asked the prodigal, son, why you've been gone so long?
One day you sold out the world and forget your happy home
The prodigal said, I searched for true religion, but no faith and no peace could I find
Until I came to a little place called Bakersfield, that eased my troublin' mind

I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
And be a servant of the Lord

I wandered into a tavern where a music band was playin'
The steel guitar rang out so sweet, I feel like I was prayin'
And I asked a comely waitress, is this a new teaching
She said there is no God but God, and Ralph Mooney is his name
I said, let me empty your ashtray, Mr. Mooney, if the drunks interfere I'll be sad
But just as long as you sit there on the bandstand and play your guitar like Buddha, I'll be glad
The father asked the prodigal, did you smell the sweet perfume and hear the angel band?
He said, dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music is the only kind of truth I'll ever understand

I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
I believe that, I believe that I will go back home
And be a servant of the Lord

"The Very Thing That Makes You Rich (Makes Me Poor)"

"The Very Thing That Makes You Rich (Makes Me Poor)"


My father told me, lying on his bed of death
"Boy," he says, "woman she's gonna make it, don't fool your self
'Cause she's got something to make a man lay that money, uh, right in her hand
And the very thing that makes her rich will make you poor
The very thing that makes her rich will make you poor"
That's right!
Well, I put you behind the wheel of a deuce and a quarter, yes I did
Had you living like a rich man's daughter, yes I did, I sure did
While you were living high on the hog
You had me down here scuffling like a dog
Well, the very thing that makes you rich makes me poor
The very thing that makes you rich makes me poor
Don't you never ever make such a bad mistake
You know I'd rather climb into bed with a rattlesnake
Then to work hard every day bringing that woman all my pay
The very thing that makes you rich makes me poor
Makes me so damn poor
The thing that makes her rich makes me poor
The very thing that makes you rich make me poor
Very thing that makes you rich makes me poor
Makes me so damned poor
Money won't change it, no no...

"The Wall Street Part Of Town"

"The Wall Street Part Of Town"


I'm walkin' if it takes all night
Hopin' that we can make things right
And I'm lookin' for the Wall Street part of town

I'm standin' in the pourin' rain
Tryin' to throw off my chains
And I'm lookin' for the Wall Street part of town

I'm in trouble again but this time I'm not the only one
I was hurtin' before but this time I'm not a lonely one
Divide and rule, that's always been their plan
We're in trouble again but this time we've got friends

So I'll keep walkin' if it takes all night
A-hopin' we gonna make things right
I'm lookin' for the Wall Street part of town

They believe that evil deeds would never fail
They had a-you and me swinging by the tail
But look who's swinging now, what's that sound I hear
A mighty wind whistling past their ears

So I keep walkin' if it takes all night
A-hopin' we can make things right
I'm lookin' for the Wall Street part of town

I feel like shakin' a hand
I'm a-ready to take my stand
'Cause I'm walkin' towards the Wall Street part of town
I'm lookin' for the Wall Street part of town
Don't you want to go with me now to the Wall Street part of town?

"The Way We Make A Broken Heart"

"The Way We Make A Broken Heart"


Just a one more kiss
He'll have to miss
This night with you
Now you're guilty of this secret love as I am too

You'll get used to telling lies
And feeling sorry when he cries
Now that the strings are attached
He'll catch on, we've done our part
'Cause this is the way we make a broken heart

Lesson number one
We've just begun
To hurt him so
And with lesson two
He'll long for you
When lights are low
Then we get to lesson three
Where he gets down on his knees
And begs you to stop at the door
Just before he comes apart
And this is the way we make a broken heart

Now we've laid a trail of tears
For him to follow
And we've thought of every line
That he might swallow

And with lesson four
There'll be no more
For him to bear
And on some dark night
We'll dim the lights
On this affair

Then he'll find somebody new
And she will hurt him too
'Cause there must be millions just like you and me
Practiced in the art

This is the way we make a broken heart
Oh, this is the way we make a broken heart
This is the way we make a broken heart

"There's A Bright Side Somewhere"


Well there's a bright side somewhere, there's a bright side somewhere
Now I ain't gonna rest until I find it
There's a bright side somewhere

And there's more love somewhere, and there's more peace somewhere
I ain't gonna rest until I find it
There's a bright side somewhere

People got a good job somewhere, got a lot of good friends somewhere
Got a little suitcase, got a little family, over on the bright side somewhere

"Three Chords And The Truth"

"Three Chords And The Truth"


I'm going to tell you a story right here
Huh, you may not believe it
I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night, standin' in the prison yard
They were taking poor Joe, chained and bound, to a Utah firing squad
Well he turned and looked at me right then, sayin', Don't you be misled
They're trying to tear our free speech down, and Buddy, they ain't near quit yet
See, they framed me on a killin' charge, you know I wouldn't lie to you
But the only crime here that I done was three chords and the truth
Three chords and the truth, oh three chords and the truth
Well the only crime that Joe Hill done was three chords and the truth
Well he sang his good old union songs, he got his message through
But they couldn't stand to hear a workingman sing three chords and the truth
I see you don't believe you're old friend Buddy here
Heh, take a drink, I think you need it
Oh J. Edgar Hoover liked to hear the darkies sing, till one man changed that all around
Paul Robeson was a man that you couldn't ignore, and that's what drove J. Edgar down
(Yah drove him down)
He called up his New York Klan boyfriends, sayin', I got something good for you
Get right down there to Peekskill, New York town, and kill three chords and the truth
Three chords and the truth, oh, three chords and the truth
Well the only crime you ever got from Paul was three chords and the truth
Now if this is the land of democracy, I got one question for you
Why wasn't Paul Roberson set free on three chords and the truth?
I see you still don't believe it
I'll bother you one more time
I'll bother you one more time, right mister
Now they took Pete Seeger before the law and put him on the witness stand
But he stood right up to tyranny with just a banjo in his hand
Such a righteous banjo picker, watchin' out for me and you
That was just a man who wouldn't back down on three chords and the truth
Three chords and the truth, three chords and the truth
Well the only crime Pete Seeger done was three chords and the truth
Yah, he sang his freedom songs real good, he's still getting his message through
Better check out old Pete Seeger on three chords and the truth
Three chords and the truth, well its three chords and the truth
Well you better check out your old friend Buddy right now on three chords and the truth
Better check out old Harlan Howard, personal friend of mine
Check out old Harlan on three chords and the truth

"Trouble, You Can't Fool Me"

"Trouble, You Can't Fool Me"


Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
Trouble you can't fool me trying to get the ups on me
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
You want to jump on me
Work hard for living, wanted just to get paid
But, sure'd be stealing for a year and a day
Would like to see a little sunshine, just to guide my way
Would like to have a little peace of mind
That's why I wanna say you better look out!
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
Look out! Trouble you can't fool me trying to get the ups on me
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
You want to jump on me
Trouble taught me a lesson I never never will forget
Now, he took my love, she ain't paid it back yet
I had to find another just to take her place
And I sure do love her, I said we're doing ok
So look out!
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
Look out! Trouble you can't fool me trying to get the ups on me
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
You want to jump on me
Well, you know, everyday can't be Sunday (That's right!)
It's a funny thing, it seem just before daylight is your darkest hour
And you know one thing (what's that?) behind every silver lining, there isn't a dark cloud
(And you just ain't got time to go 'round subtracting and adding 'cause you'll just be too late)
You know one thing? (What's that?)
Every time you get around a tree, you better stop and grab a brick (Why?)
Old man trouble... laying and waiting on you
That's what I wanna say...
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
Look out! Trouble you can't fool me trying to get the ups on me
Trouble you can't fool me I see you behind that tree
You want to jump on me
Trouble took my money, Cadillac's gone
Best suit of clothes, all raised up in the closet, oh Lord
But I'm so glad
Trouble don't last ...always
You can't fool me

"UFO Has Landed In The Ghetto"

"UFO Has Landed In The Ghetto"


Lonesome outerspace invader blasting through the night
Tuning in the soul music on the satellite
All that low-down funky rhythm makes him jump and shout
Just got to find that ghetto planet that everyone's talkin' about

Tuning in the local scene on the radio
The D.J. on the radar screen is telling him where to go
The funky fever's getting louder, sounds just like a soul encounter
Cruisin' for some bar-b-que right up Central Avenue
And he's got a little dance he wants to do

He pulls up to a big night club in his UFO
Gets right in with all the folks out on the big dance floor
It really stops the action, everybody's mystified
To see that little step he's got as he goes glidin' by

Now, he ain't doin' the Gigolo 'cause he ain't got no hips
Looks like the Funky Chicken man, 'cept he ain't got no hips
Those shiny metal threads he's wearin' really got some class
I'd say he was doin' the Bomp, but I can't seem to find his ass

Now, everybody fall in love
He's reet, he's neat, he can't be beat
You shake your shimmy like I shake mine
He's hand held and he's jet propelled
Shake it up from sun to sun
He's fast and loose, he's full of juice
Shake it like an atomic bomb
He's got the goose so what's the use
That UFO has landed in the ghetto

"Vigilante Man"

"Vigilante Man"


Have you seen that vigilante man?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
I've been hearin' his name all over the land
Rainy nights down in the engine house
Sleepin' just as still as a mouse
A man came along and he chased us out in the rain
Was that a vigilante man?
Well, I rambled around from town to town
Now, I rambled around from town to town
And they herded us around like a wild herd of cattle
Was that the vigilante man?
Well, why does a vigilante man
Tell me why does a vigilante man
Carry that sawed-off shot-gun in his hand?
Would he shoot his brother and sister down?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
I've been hearin' his name all over the land
