Track Name: Ramblin' 'round
Ramblin' 'round your city
Ramblin' 'round your town
I'll never see I friend I know
As I go ramblin' 'round
As I go ramblin' 'round

My mother an' my sister
I left in my ol' hometown
I'm out to do the best I can
As I go ramblin' 'round
As I go ramblin' 'round

My mother prayed that I would be
A man of some renounce
But I am just a refugee
As I go ramblin' 'round
As I go ramblin' 'round

The peachtrees they are loaded
The limbs are bent an' down
I pick 'em all day for a dollar, boys
As I go ramblin' 'round
As I go ramblin' 'round

Sometimes a fruit gets rotten
Falls down on the ground
There's a hungry mouth for every peach
As I go ramblin' 'round
As I go ramblin' 'round

Ramblin' 'round your city
Ramblin' 'round your town
I'll never see I friend I know
As I go ramblin' 'round
As I go ramblin' 'round
Track Name: Hey mr president
Hey, hey mr president
How come you're lookin' mean
I guess you need to work
On your so called self esteem
People marchin' firmly
A well oiled-up machine
The whole world is a cryin'
As you're swimmin' 'gainst the stream

But we thank you Mr President
For them cameras you installed
It must be mighty hard
With the world-wide-web an' all
There's no way to controll it
You can't break down thoose walls
The edge is commin' closer
Tell me, can you hear the call?

Yes tell me mr President
Are you havin' a good time
Wallstreet is a burnin'
Since they robbed
The whole world blind
It's time to find a scapegoat
An' blame him for the crime
So come here Mr president
You're next up in the line
Track Name: I got a woman
I got a woman
She won't stop lovin' me
Well I got trouble on my mind
Please just leave me be

Yes I got trouble, I got trouble
Don't bother givin' me no tea
Just 'un thing I want
Babe just leave me be

My sweet baby my sweet baby
Wants to see me all the time
Well I wish I just could tell her
I got trouble on my mind

I got a woman
She wont stop lovin' me
Well I got trouble on my mind
Please just leave me be
Track Name: In the land of china
In the land of china monday morn
Some kids are marchin' weak an' torn
Singin' fi....

The town is quiet sleepin' still
When them kids arrive to the factory hill
Singin' fi...

It's hard to laugh, it's hard to play
When you're 8 years ol' an' workin' everyday
Singin' fi....

A machine caught fire a boy was killed
They burried him at that graveyard hill
Singin' fi....

They stray like dogs 'til their hands are sore
Then they ship it off to the swedish shore
Singin' fi....

In the land of china monday night
They're marchin' home now singin' bright
Fi...
Track Name: Railroad blues
Instrumental
Track Name: I wonder if she still remember me
Tomorrow's ragin' by the corner
The day is shiftin' 'cross the sea
Strolin' 'neath a glitterin' highway
I Wonder if she still remembers me

Waitin' for my mind to stop wanderin'
Waitin' for my thoughts to leave me be
Got no telegram this mornin'
I Wonder if she still remembers me

Tryin' so hard to surrender
Crossin' some lonesome baseball field
Writin' notes by thunder
I Wonder if she still remembers me

Don't tell me about tomorrow
Don't wanna hear it you see
Just 'un thing I'm wonderin'
Honey, do you still remember me
Track Name: Rye whiskey
Rye whiskey, rye whiskey
Rye whiskey I crave
If I don't get rye whiskey
I'll go to my grave

Rye whiskey, rye whiskey
Rye whiskey I cry
If I don't get my whiskey
I surely will die

I'll eat when I'm hungry
An' drink when I'm dry
An' if whiskey don't kill me
I'll live 'till I die

Rye whiskey, rye whiskey
Rye whiskey me please
Just give me my whiskey
I'm beggin' you please

I'll drink my corn liquor
An' rye whiskey too
An' thoose who don't like it
Can go straight to hell
Track Name: Patriotic act
Woke up this mornin'
Buzzin' in my head
Found a governmental microphone
Wired up 'neath my bed
Opened up the freezer
An' what did I see
Two FBI agents, starin' back at me

Yes wherever I go
They're watchin' my back
Good bless America
An' the patriotic act

Heacache a growin'
Can't take it no-more
Covered my eyes lord
An' ran 'cross the floor
Went into the bathroom
Pulled down that chain
A grinnin' Robert Mueller
Came flushin' down my drain

One thing is certain
There's no turnin' back
God bless America
An' the patriotic act

Now Robert Mueller's
A fine lookin' male
Tried marijuana
Never inhaled
Wears his suspenders
Wrapped 'round his brain
Accordin' to him
We're all just the same

A bunch of Bin laden's
Ready to attack
God bless America
An' the patriotic act

Lord can't surf the computer
They're watchin' me there
Lord can't open my windows
Feds everywhere
All them doctors they tell me
son you're crazy thru an' thru
Listen to me
There's no-one followin' you

Yes them doctors they tell me;
You sure are a crazy young cat
An I says; Well god bless America
An' the patriotic act
Track Name: Wish I could find me a friend
Roamin' them streets
In a foggy dark haze
Empty an' lonesome
A walkin' disgrace

I just wish I could find me
A friend

The air is as cold
As a dead autumns breeze
Achin' an' tortured
I caint find no peace

I just wish I could find me
A friend

Ten miles behind
I turn by the light
Chasin' a shadow
Through the dark of the night

But the town is asleep
I'm stuck here alone
Them raw winds remind me
I'm a long way from home

I just wish I could find me
A friend
Track Name: Cocaine (Charlie Sheen blues)
Improv..
Track Name: C'mon all you people
C'mon all you people
Who'd like to change the world
Proud to take a stand
With a weapon in your hand
We sure do need you
We wanna see you
If you're ready for to teach
The glory of free-speech
With bombs an' blazin' rain
To make 'em feel some pain
An' then leave 'em all one day
To in the ruins, rot away
Then come an' see us
We'd like to meet you
An' talk it over


C'mon all you people
Who are not afraid to die
Chasin' corporate lies
With freedom in your eyes
We sure do need you
We wanna see you
If you've seen the gaze of god
Marchin' thru the mud
Tearin' boys apart
With a democrazy heart
As they're standin' in the light
Of heavenly delight
Then come an' see us
We'd like to meet you
An' talk it over

Ye c'mon all you people
Lets meet up here today
In the glory of democrazy
We'll chase the dark away
We sure do need you
We wanna see you
If they aint got our believes
Lets blow 'em all apiece
Nothin' can go wrong
Democrazy goin' strong
In the ruins of tommorrow
There'll be no-more sorrow
So come an' see us
We'd like meet you
An' talk it over
