Grandpa pissed his pants again
He don't give a damn
Brother Billy has both guns drawn
He ain't been right since Vietnam

"Sweet home Alabama"
Play that dead band's song
Turn those speakers up full blast
Play it all night long

Daddy's doing Sister Sally
Grandma's dying of cancer now
The cattle all have brucellosis
We'll get through somehow

"Sweet home Alabama"
Play that dead band's song
Turn those speakers up full blast
Play it all night long

I'm going down to the Dew Drop Inn
See if I can drink enough
There ain't much to country living
Sweat, piss, jizz and blood

"Sweet home Alabama"
Play that dead band's song
Turn those speakers up full blast
Play it all night long

Strand Of Oaks - "Mirage Year"
Songwriter: Timothy Showalter

I was in a haze, and you were in the hall
I was a fool swimming in the dark

There was one for me and many more for you
The number was a fight I couldn't lose

There were tours and songs and future plans ahead
I wasn't there I wasn't there I admit

He asked you about the movies, he asked about your day
You showed him in the mirror what was ours
I was in love, but it was changing
I was in love, but it was changing

Oh, life can bring you down
Oh, life will bring you down

That winter when you took my love
And that fucker was having his fun
But my hands are worth more than your blood

Live at Turner Hall in Milwaukee

Jimi Hendrix - If 6 was 9

If the sun refuse to shine
I don't mind, I don't mind
If the mountains fell in the sea
let it be, it ain't me
Alright, 'cos I got my own world to look through
And I ain't gonna copy you

Now if 6 turned out to be 9
I don't mind, I don't mind
Alright, if all the hippies cut off all their hair
I don't care, I don't care
Dig, 'cos I got my own world to live through
And I ain't gonna copy you

White collared conservative flashing down the street

Pointing their plastic finger at me
They're hoping soon my kind will drop and die
But I'm gonna wave my freak flag high, high
Wave on, wave on
Fall mountains, just don't fall on me
Go ahead on Mr. Business man, you can't dress like me
Sing on Brother, play on drummer

I'm coming, Lord, I'm on my way
Worshiping at the altar of know why
Can't remember which God is my wine
Can't repent if I'm wrong; impartial
Empty rituals, trinkets and fossils
And now, Lord, I'm on my way (my way)
Amen

Peace ain't coming our way
But the sun keeps burning my face
Where's my faith?
My blasphemy

Keep singin', Lord, I'm on my way
...Home

Floorboards and the ceilings are creaking
And the roof is old and leaking
But looking up high to the heavens
How can we declare our independence
From evolution and penance (our way)

Sin ain't coming our way
But the sun keeps burning my face
When's my faith renewing today?
I believe in something, I think
Where's my faith
My monastery

They're closing in, I switched the pictures
Painted all the walls
I hung the medals, hid the magazines
As caped crusaders crawled down freedom street
Guns of liberation ushered in the dawn
One guy wears an eyepatch while the other wears a tie
One will play the liberator the other run and hide
I hear the cannons crack a mile down freedom street
Out of sight, out of mind
The ninth wave claimed a thousand while another thousand fled
I'm getting low on beans and marmalade
I share my bed with locust girl she flies
Through the cracks across my head
She is always on my side
She's always on my side
I am always on your side
I'm always on your side
We're all on your side
There, there now...

S.O.D. - Fuck The Middle East

Fuck the Middle East
There's too many problems
They just get in the way
We could surely live without them

They hijack our planes
They raise our oil prices
We'll kill them all and have a ball
And end their fuckin' crisis

Beirut, Lebanon won't exist once we're done
Libya, Iran; we'll flush the bastards down the can
Syrians and Shiites; crush their faces with our might
Then Israel and Egypt can live in peace without these dicks

Jane's Addiction - Splash A Little Water On It

Oh I have to tip toe around so
as not to make a loud sound, ohh
Oh what you put her through, look at her,
try and not to wake up the girl, no
What was she thinking trying to keep up with you,
every habit you have? ohh
It's cause she loves you so,
don't tell her she's not looking so good, no

Just splash a little water on it
see what you're working with
splash a little water on it
and see if it comes alive
last night almost all went up in smoke
you cannot choke without them knowing
you keep on going

We've been drinking and smoking
til 4, 5, or 6 in the morning, ohh
I take a splash of water to bring me around
and get going, wohh
You gotta treat her like a flower man,
women need time to recover, ohh
I flex at my reflection heading into the town,
a great hunter, yeahh

I didn't want to wake you up
you looked so peaceful
I left some water in the cup by the stand
I'll call you later
oh, I just, I don't know when
just to remind you I'm your man forever

Splash a little water on it
see what you're working with
splash a little water on it
and see if it comes alive

Last night almost all went up in smoke
you cannot choke without them knowing
keep on going

For me, the truest sentence I've ever heard heard from any song
"Life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone"

Let's pack our bags and go to Florida for the winter
And meet ourselves some real nice folks
A little on the older side, and little on hope
We'll hold their hands as they walk across the street
Help 'em wipe their goddamn ass
And when they're all fast asleep, steal their medicine cabinet
Take it back home for the kids to go to school
Make enough damn dough to burn a wet bank mule
I'm in between jobs with nothing to do
Girl, it's vacation time

It's honest work, I mean it's honestly a hassle
Folks get madder than fire
If they catch you in the witching hour
Trying to steal their copper wire
But if we get it, got a cousin at the scrapyard
Aunt Betty raised a goddamn saint!
He always offers top dollar
He's always giving me a fair shake
We oughta save a little while we're still around
We gotta keep ourselves busy as we're coming down
And it sure beats diggin' underneath the ground
Savin' vacation time

Ain't hard, I taught Junior how to do it
And he's touched in the head, dark child
Blames it on the drug use, honey
What does he know anyhow?
Takes a little honest work
But pretty much cooks itself
I got a buddy on the mountain having
Trouble keepin' it on the shelf
And if we turn a profit, don't you worry, boo
We'll put a couple good snorts back for me and you
It'll keep you tweakin', keep ya going through
Til we get vacation time

Here's a song I wrote thirty-odd years ago:

Puking Blues
by M.T. Flycoon

Today I woke up early
Didn't feel very good
So I took a long, hot shower
Went outside to cut some wood
Then I went inside for breakfast
I had eggs and ham and toast
But my head hurt like thunder
And my stomach hurt the most

So I went into the bathroom
Threw up on my shoes
I'm afraid I've been attacked by
Them old puking blues

I went to see the doctor
To see what's wrong with me
They left me in the waiting room
Til quarter after three
The doctor finally came out
And said "Son, I'm going home
But you come back here tomorrow
And I'll see you in the morning"

Well, I certainly ain't no actor
I don't take no cues
But that doctor saw me right then
About my puking blues

It's been a couple of days now
And I still feel sick
I ate sixteen rolls of Rolaids
But it hasn't done the trick
I'm all out of Pepto-Bismol
And the baking soda's gone
I puked five times in the kitchen
And six times on the lawn

Dear Lord, please help me
Haven't I paid my dues?
Haven't I had enough
Of them old puking blues?
