Track Name: The Soul of John Black - My Brother
well my brother he don't know me
and my sister she cold as ice
well my brother he don't know me
and my sister she cold as ice
she died inside a long time ago
and since then she ain't been right ------

well my brother talkin' at me
and i just look to the sky
trying to tell me
time and time again
how to do things right
don't he know i'm a grown man
let me live my life

(hook)
well my brother he don't know me
and sister she cold as ice
well my brother he don't know me
and sister she cold as ice
she done got so bitter
now she can't even think right -------

see she had good man once a upon a time
i don't know what happened
she had another man another time
they got married and they start scrappin'
then she had some other things
that were going on in her life
i can't speak for that girl
all i know is that she ain't right

(hook)
my brother he don't know me
and my sister she cold as ice
my brother he don't know me
and sister she cold as ice
maybe one day we'll get it together
but for now it just ain't right
Track Name: Cassie Taylor - No Ring Blues
i cook your meals
i wash your clothes
i kiss your neck
i rub your toes
i clean your house
i scrub your floor
give you want you want baby
but you still want more
and i do everything
to keep you satisfied
so put a ring on my finger baby
make me your bride

well i don't need diamonds
just a band will do
but you're still standing there
nothing i can do
so tell me please
just tell me what i can say
or is this just another day
and i do everything
are you gonna make this forever
to keep you satisfied
so put a ring on my finger baby
make me your bride

well i never should have
shacked up with you
cause now you got the cow
gonna drink the milk too
so tell me please
just tell me what i can do
cause you're the one i love
and baby i chose you
and i did everything
to keep my baby satisfied
he put a ring on my finger baby
made me his bride
Track Name: Colin Linden - From the Water
Who's the fairest who's the fairest one around
Could it be my baby when she lays her body down

Who's the brightest brightest headlight shining
Got to be my sweet woman behind the wheel in a midnight rain driving

She holds on she holds on to what she's got
She knows who she is and what she is not

When she's dreaming dreaming about the end of time
I pull her from the water forever to be mine

She holds on she holds on to what we've got
She knows who she is and what she is not

When she's dreaming dreaming about the end of time
I will pull her from the water forever to be mine
Track Name: Mary Flower - I'm Dreaming of Your Demise
There’s one thing I can’t deny
As I gaze into your beady eyes
Baby this should come as no surprise
I am dreaming of your demise

Birds singing out in the park
Sun is shinin’ I’m on a lark
You appear and it all goes dark
I am dreaming of your demise

You are my diabolical baby---(and I’m startin’ to think)
Your sordid ways are making me crazy---(drivin’ me to drink)

You call me your sweetie pie
I’m the rotten apple of your eye
When you spout those nasty lies
I dream about your demise

You’re skatin’ on real thin ice
Fool me once, there won’t be a twice
I might need some legal advice
I am dreaming of your demise

Take all your baggage back to Las Vegas
I’ll take the kids and most of your wages

Sayonara, it’s been nice
Livin’ in fool’s paradise
Cyanide could make things right
I’m dreaming of your demise
Track Name: Fiona Boyes - Got My Eye on You
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you
I want to look you up, baby
Well, high and low
I want to raise up your shirt
See where them tattoos go...
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you

First saw you, baby, a long, long time ago
First saw you, baby, a long, long time ago
But now when I see you, well, you sure look good
Better than you know that you ought to should
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you

Baby, baby, don’t you throw no snakes-eyes on me
Baby, baby, don’t you throw no snake-eyes on me
‘Cause you never know when this feeling comes again
And I would sure like to be your friend
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you

Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Tell me, who’s the jiving-est one of all?
Who’s the one with the glint in her eye
Just checking you out as you walk on by?
Hmmm... I believe I got my eye on you

Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you
I want to look you up, baby
Well, high and low
I want to raise up your shirt
See where them tattoos go...
Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you
Track Name: Woodbrain - Turpentine
The barn is burning
In the back yard
It’s Getting hard to see
I went back home
Just To find you gone
and the Ashes covered me
are you free – are you free – are you free
In your mind
-Don’t you worry about me buddy
I’m just swimming in turpentine

You built a tower then you Pushed it over
Took so long to see
All your friends they pulled you in
You’re Such a casualty
Go away From my mind
So don’t worry about me buddy
I’m just swimming in turpentine

Help me back up before I lose my way
Turn me over don’t leave me where I lay
Time is just a lie and you will soon be mine
But for now I’ll be swimming down here all alone
In this turpentine

You Paint your story with your shadows
See it your own way
falling down just to find the ground
find me where I lay
Spinning round to read the signs
Don’t you worry about me any more
I’m just swimming in turpentine
Turpentine
Turpentine
Track Name: Chris Cotton - Come On
Hand me my pistol woman, just hold it down, I’ve got to take care of things on the other side of town.
I’m seeing red woman but I feel the same, I’m going to take care of things in my own way.
Come on…Come on…Come on…Come on
Just got off work now, just got paid my check. Thousand dollars on my mind, but I didn’t see bad Bill behind,
Now hit me on by back with a mean old Thirty-eight’. Knocked me down and he knocked me cold but I saw him run away.
I’m seeing red woman but I feel the same, I’m going to take care of things, in my own way.
Come on…Come on…Come on…Come on
I never killed a man and I don’t intend to now, Well I get my money back I’m gonna’ get it some how
I’m seeing red woman but please don’t complain, I’m going to take care of things, in my own way.
Come on…Come on…Come on…Come on
Track Name: William Lee Ellis - Dust Will Write My Name
Lord above, devil below
Each call out my name
So do you my angel babe
Billy it’s time to lay

Tallest pine, brightest star
One day will be gone
Do not grieve for all you see
Or woe this flesh and bone

A day from now, a thousand years
What of this remains
What is life in the final hour
Dust will write my name

Lord above, devil below
Each call out my name
So do you my angel babe
Billy it’s time to lay
